Dominic Scelzi Hustles for Hard Charger Award During Dodge City Debut

Inside Line Promotions - DODGE CITY, Kan. (Sept. 23, 2019) - Dominic Scelzi captured the Hard Charger Award during his debut at Dodge City Raceway Park last Friday.

Scelzi opened the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series doubleheader by qualifying 16th quickest and placing sixth in a heat race before his rally from 16th to 11th in the A Main earned the award for passing the most cars.

"I think we had a lot more speed than what the results showed all weekend," he said. "The first night I missed my line and didn't qualify very well. I went from sixth to fifth in the heat race and when I tried to get fourth we fell back to sixth. I hate to lose positions, but at least we were going for it. Then in the feature it was tough to pass. Everyone was right around the bottom. We got what we could."

Scelzi took his momentum from Friday's strong finish into Saturday's event. He qualified sixth quickest out of the 25 drivers before a third-place run in a heat race locked him into the ninth starting position for the main event.

"We went out pretty early and we qualified sixth," he said. "Brad (Sweet) got by me in the heat, which I can't be too upset about because of how well he's running. We ran around eighth or ninth about half the main event. I moved to the bottom in turns one and two and got to seventh. Fifth and sixth were racing pretty hard in front of me. I was on their rear bumpers with about three laps to go. We went into turn three and I lost the air on my nose and over we went. The wind was blowing about 40 miles an hour. I guess I got close enough that with the wind it literally turned me right."

Scelzi's night ended early after crash. He was credited with a 16 th-place result.

Next up on the schedule will be his debut at a pair of tracks along with two nights at one of his toughest ovals. The action begins on Wednesday at Jacksonville Speedway in Jacksonville, Ill., before shifting to Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, on Friday for the BeFour the Crowns Showdown with the World of Outlaws. Scelzi will return to Eldora Speedway on Saturday to race with the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions. The weekend concludes on Sunday at Kokomo Speedway in Kokomo, Ind., with the FAST Series.

"I'm optimistic," he said. "I think we have a good balance in our race car. I have confidence in the car. Eldora is a place I've struggled at probably more than any track in my career and I've never been to Jacksonville or Kokomo. I'm excited and looking forward to the challenge of a couple of new tracks and a place I've struggled at in the past."

Donny Schatz scores Outlaw Boot Hill Showdown opener at Dodge City; Ohio and PA on the horizon

Dates: Friday and Saturday, September 20th & 21st Event: Outlaw Boot Hill Showdown Series: World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Track: Dodge City Raceway Park (Dodge City, Kansas) Donny Schatz A-Main Finishes (Start): Friday: 1st (1st) Saturday: 3rd (3rd)

2019 World of Outlaws Championship Standings: 1st - 8486 points (22-point lead over Brad Sweet)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (September 23, 2019) - Continuing his march toward the 2019 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series championship, Fargo, North Dakota’s Donny Schatz put together a near-perfect campaign in the Sunflower State during the recent weekend, eventually concluding his two-day visit to Dodge City Raceway Park in Dodge City, Kansas, with a pair of podium finishes, one of which a victory - his ninth of the season.

Schatz, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Toco Warranty/Ford Performance/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/Absolute Automation & Security/No. 15 sprint car, earned his Dodge City triumph during night one of the annual Outlaw Boot Hill Showdown. Resulting in a near-wire-to-wire victory for the ten-time World of Outlaws champion, Schatz led 24 of the 25 circuits. David Gravel, who started alongside Schatz from the front row, led lap one before getting overthrown by Schatz on lap two.

Although not accomplishing the weekend sweep, Schatz concluded Outlaw Boot Hill Showdown competition with a third place performance on Saturday, September 21; he started in the exact same position.

“I think we would have been happier to win both, but to leave Kansas with a victory, as well as the points lead, is important for this team,” Donny Schatz said, who owns a 22-point lead in the current World of Outlaws championship standings. “Hats off to this Toco Warranty, No. 15 team. The West Coast swing can be tough, and the drives between are no better. They continue to stay focused which makes my job easy.”

Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing will truck further down the highway and set their compass on a pair of stops in Ohio and Pennsylvania during the coming weekend, first visiting Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio, on Friday, September 27, followed by a one-night stay at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pennsylvania, on Saturday, September 28. Donny Schatz is certainly no stranger to either destination, earning multiple Kings Royal, as well as Silver Cup championships, over the course of his storied career.

ST. HELENA, Calif. (September 23, 2019) - Adding another mark in the win column during the month of September, St. Helena, California’s Rico Abreu cashed-in for a $7,000 payday during the recent weekend, doing so by claiming the second and final night of Placerville Speedway’s NorCal Posse Shootout on Saturday, September 21. The victory not only pads Abreu’s September statistics, but it also bumps his season win total to six, his first victory since earning the Louie Vermeil Classic finale at Calistoga Speedway on September 1.

Abreu, driver of the Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing/Abreu Vineyards/Curb Records/Golden State Restaurant Group/Lucas Oil Products/Southern Pacific Farms/Priority Aviation/Self Made Racing/Dancer Logistics/No. 24 sprint car, earned his NorCal Posse Shootout victory in exciting fashion, eventually out-dueling Shane Golobic in a side-by-side battle during the final ten circuits.

Impressive enough, Rico Abreu kicked-off his weekend at Placerville Speedway with a runner-up finish on Friday, September 20 - the result of a charge from the outside of row three.

“That was a great weekend for our team. It was an exciting race, for sure, so hopefully all of the fans enjoyed themselves. That’s what’s most important,” Rico Abreu said. “I can’t thank everyone enough for sticking by my side. We’ve certainly had some great moments this year, and we’ve had some bad moments, but having the ability to recover from the bad ones defines a team.”

Wasting little time celebrating, Rico Abreu and Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing will continue their 2019 campaign with a two-day visit to the World’s Greatest Dirt Track, Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio, on Friday and Saturday, September 27 & 28.

Dubbed 4-Crown Nationals weekend, Abreu will join the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series on Friday, as well as the All Star Circuit of Champions on Saturday. Certainly no stranger to the highbanks of Eldora Speedway, Rico Abreu is a former winner at The Big E in multiple divisions.

Kerry Madsen Produces Top 10s at Williams Grove and Lincoln

Inside Line Promotions - HAGERSTOWN, Md. (Sept. 23, 2019) - Kerry Madsen recorded a pair of top-10 finishes during Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions competition in Central Pennsylvania last weekend.

The KI Crossbows backed Big Game Motorsports team opened the action on Friday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, where Madsen qualified seventh quickest overall and third in his group. A heat race win earned a spot into a dash. Madsen placed fourth in his dash before capping the night with a sixth-place run in the main event.

He backed up that performance with another strong outing on Saturday at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, where the Dirt Classic began with Madsen qualifying 19th quickest. He gained two positions in both heat races to finish second and fourth, respectively, before picking up two more spots in the A Main to end the night 10th.

"We did good at Williams Grove and Lincoln," he said. "We're trying to get prepared for next year and we're working on stuff. We have a lot of stuff figured out. I'm feeling really confident."

The weekend wrapped up on Sunday at Hagerstown Speedway, where Madsen qualified fourth quickest overall and fastest in his group. He contended for second place and a spot into a dash early in his heat race before finishing fourth.

"We qualified really well," he said. "The first laps in the heat were really good and then we dropped off the pace. We made some changes for the A Main and went the wrong way. The track was really, really slick and we just missed it. We just didn't have grip."

Madsen was credited with a 16th-place result in the main event.

The team is slated to compete this Friday at Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, during the BeFour the Crowns Showdown and Saturday at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa., during the Commonwealth Clash with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series. Madsen said Big Game Motorsports will follow the remainder of the Outlaws schedule this season beginning Friday.

"I'm looking forward to getting back with the Outlaws," he said. "We should be good at the start of the night. Hopefully we'll keep improving and will be as strong at the end of each night."

Tiner’s Alphabet Bid Comes Up Short at Placerville Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA- Returning to the seat of the C&M Motorsports No. 7c at the Nor*Cal Posse Shootout at Placerville Speedway, Steven Tiner and team would have an eventful weekend that saw the team scratch from Friday’s event with engine issues, before a wild Saturday heat race saw Tiner try to make a bid to qualify for the ‘A’ after starting the night in the ‘C’.

“We were all bummed we had engine issues on Friday night that basically forced us to become spectators,” Steven Tiner said. “Saturday night, a mistake in the heat race forced us into the ‘C’, and I did everything I could to get us into the feature.”

Timing the Moorefield Construction, Inc./PT Shocks/Swartz Diesel/Alturas Tires backed No. 7c in fourth quickest in his qualifying group, Tiner would line up on the pole of his heat race.

Getting into a battle for the lead, Tiner would get sucked into the back stretch hill where he would nearly go for a ride. Able to keep all four wheels on the ground, Tiner would endure some contact as he got back going and it would result in him spinning down the front stretch.

Finishing 10th in the wild heat, Tinder would find himself in the ‘C’ main. On the slick surface, Tiner would go to work and make the middle of the speedway work. Getting into a transfer, Tiner would actually pick up a couple extra positions as he grabbed the win.

Moving into the ‘B’ directly after the ‘C’, Tiner would continue to make the middle work as he began picking off cars left and right and rapidly approaching the transfer cars who were battling hard in front of him.

Getting to their rear bumper, an untimely caution flew and halted Tiner’s progress. The final laps, Tiner would actually lose a spot as he tried to find a way into the feature, but his night would come to a close with a seventh place finish in the semi.

“We all had high hopes for this weekend,” Tiner said. “Cody and Mandi have had a really good car at Placerville all year long, and I was hoping to end the season up there on a high note for them. We had some fun, but I wish I could have ran a little better for their team. I do have to thank them for giving me a great shot at a track that I love.”

The C&M Motorsports team would like to thank Moorefield Construction, Inc., PT Shocks, Swartz Diesel, Alturas Tires, and all of their product sponsors for their continued support.

ON TAP: The C&M Motorsports team will be back in action this Friday and Saturday night at Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, CA for the Fall Nationals.

Kraig Kinser Earns Top Five and Hard Charger Award During Dodge City Doubleheader

Inside Line Promotions - DODGE CITY, Kan. (Sept. 23, 2019) - Kraig Kinser produced a solid weekend at Dodge City Raceway Park, where he garnered a top-five result during the opener before capping the weekend by recording the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars.

"One night we qualified well and ran a good heat race and that put us in a good spot for the feature," he said. "The second night we didn't. We had to start near the back and we weren't able to drive up to the front. When you qualify better it gives you a better change to start up front at the end of the night. We went out early one night and later the second night. The draw definitely plays into that, but that's the way it works out some nights."

Kinser qualified third quickest to kick off Friday's action. A runner-up result in a heat race was followed by a fifth-place finish in both the dash and main event.

"The track got one lane both nights," he said. "It was tough to pass all weekend. The track was different where one night was quicker and one was slower and slicker, but it still had one lane that was dominant."

Kinser timed in 15th quickest on Saturday. He placed sixth in a heat race before maneuvering from 18th to 13th in the main event, good enough for the Hard Charger Award.

"It was a good weekend," he said. "Any time you can get a top five it's a good weekend. We wish we could have had a top five both nights, but we'll take how it played out."

Kinser and the World of Outlaws will compete this Wednesday at Jacksonville Speedway in Jacksonville, Ill.; Friday at Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, during the BeFour the Crowns Showdown; and Saturday at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa., during the Commonwealth Clash.

"Jacksonville is the track out of those where we've had the least amount of laps," he said. "We just came out of California, where there were a lot of small tracks. As small as it is you want to get out and qualify good, start up front in your heat and hopefully stay up there."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 20 - Dodge City Raceway Park in Dodge City, Kan. - Qualifying: 3; Heat race: 2 (1); Dash: 5 (5); Feature: 5 (5).

Sept. 21 - Dodge City Raceway Park in Dodge City, Kan. - Qualifying: 15; Heat race: 6 (5); Feature: 13 (18).

Blake Carrick Records 15th and 16th Place Finishes at Nor*Cal Posse Shootout

PETERSEN MEDIA: Getting back to work at Placerville Speedway over the weekend during the Nor*Cal Posse Shootout, Blake Carrick would finish 16th on Friday night before a late mistake on Saturday night dropped him back to a 15th place finish.

“Saturday night we were really good,” Blake Carrick said. “I made a little mistake in our heat that cost us a chance to make the Dash, and in the feature I hopped the cushion and it dropped us out of the Top-10.”

Putting a tough Friday night behind him that saw him battle through the ‘B’ to finish 16th in the ‘A’, Carrick came out on Saturday night and timed his No. 38B machine in 4th fastest in his time trial group.

Finishing second in his heat race, the youngster from Lincoln, CA moved into the 40-lap feature event where he would roll off the starting grid from the ninth position.

On a freshly manicured surface, Carrick would take a liking to it as he would get up as high as seventh in the early stages of the race as action picked up all over the ¼ mile bullring.

Amidst some wheel to wheel racing, Carrick would drop back as far as 12th at the race’s half way point, but with the ever-changing track conditions, two and three wide racing was the norm.

Racing his way back up to eighth with 10-to-go as he started battling with older brother, Tanner, Blake would get up over the cushion with four to go and give up a handful of positions as he slipped back to 15th where he went on to finish.

“It was a fun race, and it was fun battling with Tanner there at the end of the race,” Carrick said. “Unfortunately I just made that mistake and cost us a shot at a Top 10.”

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

ON TAP: Blake Carrick heads to Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, CA this weekend for the Fall Nationals on Friday and Saturday night.

Tough Going at Nor*Cal Posse Shootout for Andy Gregg

PETERSEN MEDIA: Taking part in the final Sprint Car event of the year at Placerville Speedway over the weekend, Andy Gregg would suffer a parts failure on Friday night before an early incident on Saturday caused him to withdraw from the event with extensive frame damage.

“It certainly was not the weekend we had hoped for with it being the last local show of the season,” Andy Gregg said. “I can make excuses for Saturday night’s wreck in hot laps, but at the end of the day it falls on my shoulders. I am embarrassed that I wrecked in hot laps, and hate it for my awesome partners, and my crew that works so hard for me every week.”

Friday night, Gregg got his night started off by timing the GUTS/Capitol ACE Hardware/Crane Inspection Agency backed No. 16x machine in fastest in his qualifying group.

Getting out of shape while battling for position in his heat race, the Diamond Springs, CA driver was able to hang on to finish fifth which moved him into the 30-lap feature event as well as the Dash based on his qualifying time.

Finishing eighth in the Dash, Gregg would take the green flag from the outside of the fourth row on a very slick surface that was offered up on Friday night.

Jumping into seventh when the race came to life, Gregg was battle hard inside the Top-10 against a very loaded field of cars. Slipping back to eighth on a double file restart, Gregg would get back up to seventh at the race’s halfway point.

In seventh and in a tight battle for a spot in the top five, Gregg’s night would get cut short as a steering bolt failure on the 24th lap forced Gregg to retire from the event six laps short of the finish.

Saturday night, Gregg would be involved in a wreck in warm ups that caused extensive damage to his car and forced him to pull out of the event.

“Friday we had a good car and I think we may have been able to get another couple of positions in the final laps, but luck wasn’t on our side,” Gregg added. “Again, I apologize to my guys and my partners for how Saturday night went and thank everyone for all of the support they provided to the GUTS Racing car in 2019.”

Andy would like to thank GUTS, Capitol ACE Hardware, Crane Inspection Agency, Sierra Ice, CTL Forest Management, Nail It Roofing, ARP Enterprises, Ervin Sales, Triple X, Wilwood, FK Shocks, FK Rod Ends, K&N, King Racing Products, BR Motorsports, Amerikote, Pony Express Service, Eagle Grit, and MF Inc. for their support in 2019.

ON TAP: Andy Gregg’s 2019 season in the GUTS Racing No. 16x has come to an end. Gregg still may get another race or two in with the BrownEagle Racing No. 01 machine, but is unsure at this time.

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Races-14, Wins- 0, Top 5’s-5, Top 10’s-6

Nor*Cal Posse Shootout Top-10 For Willie Croft

PETERSEN MEDIA- Enduring mechanical issues during heat race competition on Friday night to open the Nor*Cal Posse Shootout, Willie Croft came out strong during Saturday’s finale as he finished 10th to close the season at the ¼ mile bullring.

“We had a really fast car all night long,” Willie Croft said. “My guys worked hard, and although we slipped back at the end of the feature I felt pretty good all night long.”

Timing in fastest in his qualifying group, Croft hooked up in quite the battle with Rico Abreu in heat race action. Exchanging the top spot lap after lap, Croft would ultimately finish second, which was good enough to transfer him into both the Dash and the feature event.

Finishing fourth in the Dash, Croft would line the Holey Smokes BBQ/ButlerBuilt/Brown and Miller backed No. 29 machine up in the second row to start the 40-lap Nor*Cal Posse Shootout feature event.

Amidst a torrid battle up front when the race came to life, Croft would find himself battling with the likes of Kyle Hirst, Rico Abreu, and Shane Golobic. As the track changed with each lap after some pre race work, Croft continued to stay in the hunt as laps clicked off quickly.

Working through traffic in the closing laps, Croft would lose some track position as he faded inside the Top-10. When the checkered flag flew, Croft crossed under it in the 9th position to record his 20th Top-10 of the 2019 season.

“We had some tough luck on Friday night, but we came back and had a good showing on Saturday night,’ Croft said. “We would have liked to have finished back up on the podium, but it was a tough field of cars and we faded a little at the end.”

Willie Croft Racing would like to thank Holey Smokes BBQ, ButlerBuilt , Brown and Miller, FK Rod Ends, Factory Kahne, Schoenfeld, Team Simpson, Stilo, Smith Precision Products, Kaeding Performance, AL Drivelines, XYZ, Vortex Wings, Amerikote, DoTerra and GUTS for their support in 2019.

Kaleb Johnson Earns Hard Charger Award in Jackson Motorplex Finale

Inside Line Promotions - JACKSON, Minn. (Sept. 23, 2019) - Kaleb Johnson charged through the field to score a sixth-place finish in Saturday night's 305 sprint car feature during the Casey's General Stores Open Wheel Nationals presented by Sea Foam at Jackson Motorplex. His performance earned him the Hard Charger Award and marked the second consecutive night that he passed a number of cars in the feature.

"Given where we started, I thought it went pretty well," Johnson said of his advance from 15th to sixth. "You always want to do better, but things don't always work out the way you want. But I think our weekend went all right."

Johnson started and finished third in his heat race on Saturday, which slotted him 15th on the starting grid determined by a passing-points format.

"The track on Saturday was different than the night before," he said. "There was more moisture earlier in the night, which didn't really work in our favor in the heat race. We were a little off with our car and it was really tough to pass."

After getting caught up in an opening-lap incident in Friday's feature, Johnson was less aggressive early in Saturday night's event.

"Keeping in mind how the previous night went, I was kind of cautious the first couple of laps on Saturday and made sure I didn't put myself in a bad situation," he said. "Once we got going and I figured out where the car was good, it went pretty well and we were able to pass quite a few cars early. I think we were up to about eighth after about 10 laps and were able to get by a couple more after that."

Johnson was able to rally from adversity in the feature on the opening night as he recovered from a Lap 1 incident to salvage an 11th -place finish after starting 10th in the 24-car field.

"A car spun out in front of me in the first turn and I just had nowhere to go," he said. "I tried to slow down as much as possible, but still ended up hitting him, bending our front axle and the nose wing. But we were still able to run and make it up to 11th after restarting last. That's kind of how our year has gone."

Johnson will get behind the wheel of his 360ci sprint car this weekend for the first time since early August for a Sprint Invaders doubleheader on Friday and Saturday at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa.

"I'm really looking forward to getting in the 360 again and racing a new track," he said. "Unfortunately, this will probably be our last race of the year."

Sanders Charges to 8th During Nor*Cal Posse Shootout Opener

PETERSEN MEDIA- Friday night at the Nor*Cal Posse Shootout opener, Justin Sanders overcame an early issue in the feature event and charged up to an eighth place finish before a heat race incident essentially ended his Saturday night.

“It was a bit of a tough weekend for us, we didn’t have much luck on our side,” Justin Sanders said. “Friday night we got caught up just before the halfway point of the feature but still ran it back up to eighth, and on Saturday an opening lap incident in our heat buried us for the rest of the night.”

Piloting Dale Miller’s No. 4SA entry during the final weekend of competition at Placerville Speedway, Friday night Justin Sanders would get timed in second in his qualifying group before finishing fourth in his heat race.

Transferring directly into the feature event from his heat, Sanders would grid the field from the 15th starting position on the slick racing surface. Working his way forward, Sanders would find himself on the outside of the Top-10 before issues on the 11th lap saw him bring out the yellow.

Going to the tail end of the field, Sanders would put on a bit of show in the race’s final 14 laps. Clawing his way around the bullring, Sanders would race into the Top-10 and close his night out with an eighth place finish.

Back in action on Saturday night for the final race of the year at Placerville Speedway, Sanders would get timed in fifth quickest in his group which placed him in the third row of his heat race.

With a driver getting out of shape in front of him on the opening lap of the race, Sanders would make contact with him and endure contact from another car and get upside down.

Taking the DNF in the heat, Sanders would have his work cut out for himself the rest of the night as he would be in the ‘C’. Able to transfer out of the ‘C’, Sanders tagged the rear of the ‘B’.

From the tail of the ‘B’, Sanders could only work his way up to 12th when the 15-lapper concluded and that brought an end to his weekend.

“Saturday was definitely a forgettable night,” Justin Sanders said. “Thanks to Dale and Tara Miller and their team, hopefully we can put this weekend behind us and have a good showing in Chico, CA this weekend.”

The Dale Miller Motorsports team would like to thank Thompson’s Buick-GMC, Thompson’s Jeep-Ram, Dale Miller Septic, Inc., North County Plastering, Anrak Corporation, Yuba-Sutter Aviation, Frank’s Body Shop, Wion’s Powder Coating, Walker Performance Filtration, Factory Kahne Shocks, Smith Titanium, FK Rod Ends, Triple X Race Co., King Racing Products, A.R.T.

Carrick Caps Nor*Cal Posse Shootout with 10th Place Run

PETERSEN MEDIA: Taking part in the Nor*Cal Posse Shootout at Placerville Speedway over the weekend, Tanner Carrick would finish 17th on Friday night before a good Saturday night capped his weekend off with a 10th place finish.

“Friday night was a little rough for us, but Saturday we were really good,” Carrick said. “We got shoved up on the initial start and lost some spots but I was able to get those back, until we got stuck on the bottom on a late restart and fell back again.”

Following a 17th place finish during the opening night of action on Friday night, Carrick came out on Saturday night and timed the CVC/Cemex/Interstate Oil backed No. 83T machine in third quickest in his time trial group before finishing third in his heat race.

Just sneaking into the Dash, Carrick would finish fifth and line his machine up in the third row for the 40-lap Nor*Cal Posse Shootout feature event. When the green flag dropped Carrick would endure some contact to the rear of his car that pushed him out of shape and he fell back to 10th from the get-go.

With a very good car underneath him, the Lincoln, CA product would work his way back forward picking up his lost positions. Getting back up to seventh at one point, a restart would see him get trapped on the bottom groove and again lose a couple of positions.

Battling with younger brother, Blake in the later stages of the race, Carrick would take the final checkered flag of the weekend with a 10th place finish.

“I think we could have battled inside the Top-5 if we didn’t lose so many spots on the start,” Carrick said. “We were fast all Saturday night, and I have to thank the guys for working so hard on both of our cars all weekend.”

Tanner Carrick would like to thank CVC, Cemex, Interstate Oil, Conti, Harris and Sloan, Emerald, Timberworks Construction, Arai, and Spike Chassis for their support.

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts: 14, Wins: 1, Top 5’s: 1, Top 10’s: 5

Andy Forsberg Pockets A Pair of Top-5’s at Nor*Cal Posse Shootout

PETERSEN MEDIA- Spending one last weekend at Placerville Speedway in 2019 during the Nor*Cal Posse Shootout, Andy Forsberg and F&F Racing would pick up a fifth place finish on Friday night before charging to 4th from 13th on Saturday night.

“It was a good weekend for our race team,” Andy Forsberg said. “Friday night was kind of uneventful for us, but we put ourselves in the right spot and ended up fifth. Saturday night I did not do my job in qualifying and really thought our night was finished but we had some luck on our side in the heat, and these guys gave me an awesome car in the feature.”

Friday night’s Nor*Cal Posse Shootout opener came to life with Forsberg timing the Econo Lube-N-Tune and Brakes/Geico Local Office/PitStopUSA backed No. x1 entry in third fastest in his qualifying group.

Finishing second in his heat race, Forsberg would still make his way into the Dash as he was the fastest qualifier in his heat to transfer. Finishing fifth in the Dash, ‘Mr. Excitement’ would line up in the fifth spot for the 30-lap feature event.

Slipping back to sixth when the race came to life, Forsberg would run in that position for much of the race. With five laps to go in the race, Forsberg would make a move to get into fifth where he would go on to finish and close out the opening night feature event.

Back in business on Saturday night with big money up for grabs, Forsberg would get off to a tough start as he timed in eight quickest in his qualifying group. A multi car pile up on the start of his heat race would give Forsberg a couple of quick positions, taking a little of the pressure off.

Able to finish fourth, Forsberg would punch his ticket into the 40-lap feature event where he would grid the field from the 13th starting position.

On a very racy Placerville Speedway surface, Forsberg jumped into the Top-10 very quickly and began working his way forward. Hooking up in some entertaining battles in his march to the front, Forsberg would get as high as fourth when the action packed race came to a close.

Charging from 13th to finish fourth, Forsberg would be the event’s Hard Charger, and took home an extra $200 courtesy of Starr Property Management.

“The way the format was, we actually ended up with an okay starting position being in the first heat race,” Forsberg said. “The guys gave me a really good car and we were able to go for it and make up some ground. With how slick it was, it’s really not my forte but these guys gave me a car that made me look good, and I have to thank them for that.”

F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg would like to thank Econo Lube-n-Tune and Brakes, Geico Local Office, PitStopUSA, Lucas Oil, Pacific Highway Rentals, Autism Awareness, FVP, and CRV Carbon Solutions for their support in 2019.

ON TAP: F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg will now travel to Silver Dollar Speedway this Friday and Saturday night for the Fall Nationals.

Justyn Cox Wins Nor*Cal Posse Shootout Opener

PETERSEN MEDIA: Getting the call to pilot the Moxie Motorsports No. 97 entry at the Nor*Cal Posse Shootout at Placerville Speedway over the last weekend, Justyn Cox would make the most of the opportunity as he won Friday night’s opener before a sixth place finish during the finale.

“I didn’t think I would be able to run the event this year until Vern Morrison gave me a call last week,” Justyn Cox said. “To come out and be fast all weekend and even get a win was really cool, and I had a lot of fun with this team.”

Friday night, Cox got his night started by timing the Morrison Concrete/RPI backed entry in third quickest in his time trial group before racing to a win during heat race action.

Moving into the Dash, Cox would run second to Shane Golobic and put himself on the front row of the 30-lap feature event. Using the outside lane to his advantage, Cox would get the jump as he would soon find himself in the moisture on the bottom of the speedway.

A mirage of cautions around the halfway point led to a double file restarts, and after picking the top on the first restart, Cox would continue to lead but would opt to use the bottom the rest of the night. Keeping Shane Golobic and Rico Abreu at bay, Cox was strong out front as he picked up his fourth win of the 2019 season.

Looking to cash in during the lucrative Nor*Cal Posse Shootout finale on Saturday, Cox got off to a great start as he went quick time in his time trial group and raced his way to a heat race win.

Again moving into the Dash, Cox would finish seventh and place himself in the fourth row to start the 40-lap feature event. When the green lights flashed on, the inside lane would get stacked up and Cox would find himself back in the 13th position as the race moved on.

A very racy surface after some pre-race track prep allowed Cox to work his way back forward. Racing his way through the Top-10, Cox would flirt with a Top-5 finish as he closed his 2019 Placerville Speedway season out with a sixth place finish.

“We had another really good car on Saturday night, and I think we had a shot to mix it up with the leaders if we didn’t get stacked up on the start,” Cox added. “I had a blast with these guys all weekend long, and again extremely thankful to have the opportunity.”

Cox would like to thank Moxie Motorsports for the opportunity and wanted to give a special shout out to the team’s sponsors, Morrison Concrete, and Roseville Precision, Inc.

The Cox Racing team would like to thank Michael David Winery, Five Window Beer Company, MDW Sports, Cranked Naturals, PM Truck Repair, Justice Brothers, K&N, Konnected, A.R.T., Sacramento Theatrical Lighting, College Cyclery, Arai, Racing Optics, All American Powder Coating, VSR, Coos Bay Speedway, Swimming Pool Perfections, Tim’s Hot Rod Shop, Shell Shock, Moyle Race Engines, and Manzer Motorsports for their support in 2019!

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Races-43, Wins-4, Top 5’s-17, Top 10’s-23

ON TAP: Justyn Cox will reunite with Doug Rutz this weekend at the Fall Nationals in Chico, CA.

 

 

Madsen Records Pair of Dodge City Top-5’s Including Second Place Run on Saturday

PETERSEN MEDIA- Getting back to the Midwest after a couple of weeks out West, Ian Madsen and the KCP Racing team had a great weekend at Dodge City Raceway Park that saw the team finish fourth on Friday night before a second place run on Saturday.

“It was a great weekend for our race team,” Ian Madsen said. “We had speed out West, just not much luck on our side and we were able to carry that speed over to this weekend a record a pair of Top-5 finishes.”

Friday night at Dodge City Raceway Park, Madsen kicked the night off by timing the Logan Contractors Supply, Inc./Aspen Aire/Royal Flooring backed No. 18 entry in second fastest in time trials before picking up a heat race win.

Moving into the Dash, Madsen would continue to have horrendous luck in the draw as the six pill put him in the last row of the event for the 11th time in the last 12 visits to the Dash. Able to pick up a couple of positions, Madsen would finish fourth and start the feature event from the second row.

On the slick surface, Madsen would go to work on the top side of the speedway like much of the field did as the bottom groove went away quickly. Battling with Kraig Kinser and Logan Schuchart, Madsen would keep his mount solidly in the Top-5 as he took the checkered flag in the fourth position.

Back in action on Saturday night, Madsen mirrored the start of his night from Friday as he timed in second fastest and again won his heat race. Moving into the Dash draw, Madsen would finally break his back row streak as the two pill placed him on the front row alongside Brad Sweet.

On an extremely windy day, Madsen would hang on to finish second in the Dash and start the feature on the front row as everyone battled some tricky conditions.

With clean air playing a big role on this night, Madsen would find himself in second and chasing after Brad Sweet for all 31 laps that were ran on this night. Getting close to Sweet in traffic on a few occasions, the same cars that slowed Sweet and allowed Madsen to close the gap would also hinder Madsen and allow Sweet to open the gap back up.

A final green-white-checkered restart gave the St. Marys, NSW driver one more shot at Sweet, but the leader was too good in clean air on this night and pulled away as Madsen closed his night with a second place finish.

“Happy to get up on the podium for my guys,” Madsen said. “We have a lot of speed and hopefully we can get this car back in victory lane a time or two before the season ends.

Ian and his KCP Racing team would like to thank Logan Contractors Supply Inc., Aspen Aire, Royal Flooring, Bobcat, Kline Electric, Ted’s Body Shop, Team Excavating, Greenland Homes, American Express, TammyHeckart.com, Quality Traffic Control, BergenKDV, P1 Race Wear, and BK Racing Titanium for their support this season.

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-67, Wins-1, Top-5’s- 14, Top 10’s-35

Schuett Eager to Make His World of Outlaws Debut at Jacksonville

Inside Line Promotions - PHILO, Ill. (Sept. 23, 2019) - Kyle Schuett is looking forward to making his debut with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series this Wednesday at Jacksonville Speedway.

"We're pretty excited about racing with the Outlaws for the first time," he said. "They're definitely the best and I have the utmost respect for all of them. It'll be a little nerve-wracking pitting beside and racing against the guys who I've watched as a fan."

A new engine and car give the sprint car rookie guarded optimism going into the event at the oval in Jacksonville, Ill.

"We just dynoed our new motor last week and were very pleased with the results," he said. "We'll have a new car, too. Now it's just a matter of putting everything together with the car and me driving my very best.

"It's going to come down to qualifying. We'll need a good draw to go out early because you need every advantage you can get when you run with those guys. We just hope to make two smooth qualifying laps and 10 good heat race laps and hope the rest falls into place."

A top-15 finish in his debut with the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions in June and previous experience at Jacksonville Speedway also give Schuett reason to look forward to Wednesday's race.

"We did okay in our first race with the All Stars and they have a lot of good drivers, too," he said. "And we have quite a few laps at Jacksonville, which is certainly much better than racing against the Outlaws at a track we've never been to. But it comes down to experience. We've only raced about 15 times in a sprint car while the Outlaws have raced over 60 times just this year."

Schuett will focus on doing his best each lap when on track and he hopes variables fall in his favor.

"Ultimately, I'd like to make the feature," he said. "But we expect a lot of cars there and we'll need things to go in our favor for that to happen. We'll be satisfied if we can run all our laps."

Clay Dow Overall Winner at Bear Ridge Speedway

The Green Mountain Gear-Heads Sprint Cars of New England returned to the Bear Ridge Speedway for the final time in 2019 as part of the NE Dirt Track Championship Weekend on Saturday, September 21st. The race format for the evening was very different than the normal procedure as the cars and stars of the Sprint Cars of New England ran two 20 lap Races and inverted the field after the first event with the overall winner being determined by the best combined finish of the events. Time Trials were used to set the starting order of the first 20 lap event.

Clay Dow set fast time in Time Trails and therefore started the first 20-Lap event on the pole with second fast Kurt Conklin on the outside of the front row. When the green flag flew Clay Dow immediately burst out to an impressive lead with Kurt Conklin settling into second with John Scarborough third. By lap four Chris Donnelly had worked by Scarborough into third and then started to track down the second running Conklin. While Clay Dow continued to build his impressive lead Donnelly was challenging Conklin for second and finally executed the pass to claim the spot with thirteen laps complete in the fast paced event. By lap fifteen Dow was encountering lapped traffic which slightly slowed his pace and allowed Donnelly to close the gap between the two some but without any cautions to tighten the field up Clay Dow took the impressive win in the first 20 lap event. Chris Donnelly was second with Kurt Conklin third, John Scarborough fourth and Will Hull completed the top five.

When the second 20 Lap event came to post it was Travis Billington and Mike Kondrat on the front row with Billington getting the jump to bolt into the lead when green flag racing commenced. Kevin Chaffee was on the move, flying to the front from his fourth starting spot to claim the lead with four laps in the books. His lead was very short lived however as just two laps later Will Hull, after starting sixth, blasted by Chaffee and took the top spot. At the halfway mark of the event it was will Hull with the lead, Kevin Chaffee was second with Travis Billington third. Just a lap later however Jake Williams flew by Billington to garner third and two laps later made a slick move get by Kevin Chaffee for second. With five laps to go Claw Dow also worked by Chaffee to take the third spot and that is how they finished the caution free event. Will Hull took the win with Jake Williams second and Clay Dow third. Kevin Chaffee was fourth with Travis Billington claiming fifth.

When the finishes were combined from the two caution free 20 lap Features the overall winner was Clay Dow with Will Hull second, Jacob Williams was third with Chris Donnelly fourth and Kevin Chaffee fifth.

With the Second place finish Will Hull cemented his second consecutive Bear Ridge Speedway Sprint Car Title.

The next event on the Green Mountain Gear-Heads Sprint Cars of New England schedule will be Saturday, October 5th at the RumTown Speedway in Wentworth, NH and will complete the 2019 season.

Dominic Scelzi Hustles for Hard Charger Award During Dodge City Debut

Inside Line Promotions - DODGE CITY, Kan. (Sept. 23, 2019) - Dominic Scelzi captured the Hard Charger Award during his debut at Dodge City Raceway Park last Friday.

Scelzi opened the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series doubleheader by qualifying 16th quickest and placing sixth in a heat race before his rally from 16th to 11th in the A Main earned the award for passing the most cars.

"I think we had a lot more speed than what the results showed all weekend," he said. "The first night I missed my line and didn't qualify very well. I went from sixth to fifth in the heat race and when I tried to get fourth we fell back to sixth. I hate to lose positions, but at least we were going for it. Then in the feature it was tough to pass. Everyone was right around the bottom. We got what we could."

Scelzi took his momentum from Friday's strong finish into Saturday's event. He qualified sixth quickest out of the 25 drivers before a third-place run in a heat race locked him into the ninth starting position for the main event.

"We went out pretty early and we qualified sixth," he said. "Brad (Sweet) got by me in the heat, which I can't be too upset about because of how well he's running. We ran around eighth or ninth about half the main event. I moved to the bottom in turns one and two and got to seventh. Fifth and sixth were racing pretty hard in front of me. I was on their rear bumpers with about three laps to go. We went into turn three and I lost the air on my nose and over we went. The wind was blowing about 40 miles an hour. I guess I got close enough that with the wind it literally turned me right."

Scelzi's night ended early after crash. He was credited with a 16 th-place result.

Next up on the schedule will be his debut at a pair of tracks along with two nights at one of his toughest ovals. The action begins on Wednesday at Jacksonville Speedway in Jacksonville, Ill., before shifting to Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, on Friday for the BeFour the Crowns Showdown with the World of Outlaws. Scelzi will return to Eldora Speedway on Saturday to race with the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions. The weekend concludes on Sunday at Kokomo Speedway in Kokomo, Ind., with the FAST Series.

"I'm optimistic," he said. "I think we have a good balance in our race car. I have confidence in the car. Eldora is a place I've struggled at probably more than any track in my career and I've never been to Jacksonville or Kokomo. I'm excited and looking forward to the challenge of a couple of new tracks and a place I've struggled at in the past."

New Commemorative ‘James Dean Classic’

Gas City I-69 Speedway T-shirt

Celebrates the Actor’s Passion for Motorsports

GAS CITY, Ind., Sept. 23 — To commemorate the second annual “James Dean Classic” at Gas City I-69 Speedway on Thursday, a new, collectible event T-shirt has been produced to celebrate the iconic actor’s love of speed and passion for motorsports.

Last year’s inaugural event T-shirt sold out in 45 minutes.

Designed and produced by Charlotte-based SMI Properties, which produces all event souvenirs for Speedway Motorsports, Inc. and its eight NASCAR-sanctioned motorsports facilities, the T-shirt showcases a photo of Dean next to a pair of non-wing sprint cars with one carrying Dean’s last racing number, 130. It also includes a line “Dirt Track Rebels” and the speedway logo.

In addition to a sprint car, the back of the shirt features candid, family-provided photos of Dean, including one seated atop one of his early motorcycles and one of him driving his Porsche 550 Spyder, which was nicknamed “The Little Bastard.” Dean was killed in the car in a highway accident enroute to a sports car race in Salinas, Calif. on Sept. 30, 1955.

The “James Dean Classic” features the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series making their final appearance at the quarter-mile clay oval this season. The event is part of the annual James Dean Festival celebrated in the area. Dean was born in nearby Marion and raised approximately 15 miles from the speedway in Fairmount.

A limited run of the shirts will be available at the speedway’s gift shop on Thursday. If inventory is available, mail orders will be taken on Monday, Sept. 30. The shirt comes in black or heather blue in short- and long-sleeve versions, from small to 4XL. Black crewneck sweatshirts are also available.

Short-sleeve shirts from small to extra large sell for $20, while long-sleeve versions are priced at $25. An additional $2 is charged for sizes XXL to 4XL. Crewneck sweatshirts are priced at $35 for small through extra large with an additional $2 for 2XL-4XL.

Part of the proceeds will be donated to the Fairmount Historical Museum to preserve the history and artifacts of Dean’s life.

Tickets for the “James Dean Classic” are available at the speedway ticket office. Adult general admission is $25. Children 12 and under are admitted free. The speedway also offers free parking and camping for fans.

Spectator gates open at 4:30 p.m. and racing begins at 7:30 p.m.

Fans can get additional information on the track’s website at GasCityI69Speedway.com. Fans can also follow it on Facebook (@GasCitySpeedwayOnTheGas), Twitter (@GasCitySpeedway) and Instagram (@GasCitySpeedway).

 

 

Former Must See Racing flagman J.D. Wilbur will be honored this weekend at Rockford Speedway in his home state of Illinois.

HOLLY, Mich. – The Must See Racing Sprint Car Series presented by Engine Pro enters Rockford (Ill.) Speedway this weekend with a greater purpose than simply holding its penultimate event of the year.

The 410ci winged asphalt sprint car tour will honor one of its longtime faces who tragically passed away during the offseason.

J.D. Wilbur, who was the chief starter for Must See Racing from its inception until his death last November, will be remembered during the Saturday portion of National Short Track Championship weekend at the high-banked quarter-mile oval, the series track closest to Wilbur’s Illinois home.

The “J.D. Wilbur Rumble for the Record,” a king-of-the-hill, elimination-style time attack battle which will see the top 16 cars from hot laps battle for an $800 prize and also set qualifying times for Sunday’s portion of the program, will be named in the longtime flagman’s honor, a fitting tribute to his legacy.

“We knew going into this season that we wanted to do something special to honor and remember our friend J.D.,” said Must See Racing President Jim Hanks. “We can think of no better way to do just that than to tribute him by naming Saturday’s Rumble for the Record in his memory at his home track.

“J.D. is missed every day by all of us at Must See Racing, but his legacy lives on and we hope that this weekend’s action at Rockford brings joy to all those in the industry that he touched over the years.”

Prior to his time with Must See Racing, Wilbur was well-known in the motorsports industry for his time in American open wheel racing, serving as a starter for the CART FedEx Championship Series (later Champ Car) for many years.

Saturday’s Rumble for the Record – a format previously used by Must See Racing several years ago at Michigan’s Berlin Raceway – will feature the top 16 cars on speed from Saturday’s hot lap sessions.

Those 16 cars will then make standard two-lap qualifying runs, with the fastest eight drivers from the round moving on to the next elimination segment.

That process will be repeated two more times, trimming the contenders down to four and then to two, before the final pair standing duels for “King of Quick Time” honors in the championship round.

The driver who wins the final round of the Rumble for the Record will be guaranteed a minimum of $800, with a potential $200 bonus on hand if that driver breaks the Rockford track record of 11.380 seconds (79.086 mph), set by Jacob Wilson on July 3, 2011.

A driver’s fastest lap, regardless of round, will be used to pay out series championship points for qualifying and to set the lineups for Sunday’s heat races and the 54-lap main event.

Expected entrants for the Rockford weekend include four-time defending series champion Jimmy McCune, who took over the point lead last time out at Jennerstown; his nephew Anthony McCune; National Sprint Car Hall of Famer Jeff Bloom; Charlie Schultz, who nearly won at Rockford last summer; Canadian Ryan Litt and Brian Gerster, Must See Racing’s all-time fast qualifier over its 10-year history.

Gerster ruled the last Rumble for the Record at Berlin in 2017, setting what was – at the time – a new track record in the No. 50m RAM Engineering-sponsored sprint car for Dick Myers Racing.

Pit gates at Rockford open at 8:30 a.m. CT on Saturday, with hot laps rolling off at 11 a.m. CT and the first round of qualifying beginning at 2:15 p.m. CT. The remaining rounds will start at 5 p.m. CT.

No Doubt James Dean Would Have Enjoyed

This Thursday’s ‘James Dean Classic’ at Gas City

GAS CITY, Ind., Sept. 23 — If James Dean were alive today it is very possible he would be at Gas City I-69 Speedway this Thursday night to watch the race named in his honor, and he’d be in awe of the speed and excitement of non-wing sprint car action.

Growing up in the small town of Fairmount, Ind., located just a few miles from Gas City I-69 Speedway, Dean had a fascination with things that went fast. His love of speed would eventually develop into a passion for motorsports.

“I don’t think he would have ever given up acting as a career, but Jimmy loved racing,” said his cousin, Marcus Winslow Jr., to Gas City Promoter Jerry Gappens last year from Winslow’s Fairmount family farm, where Dean lived for several years as a teenager. “He was very competitive by nature and he loved the sensation of speed.”

The iconic actor had athletic talent as well, winning a novice race in Palm Springs, Calif. driving his No. 23F, a 1954 Porsche Speedster. He had only owned the car for two weeks and surprised everyone in the paddock with his impressive performance. The next day he moved up to a main event for under 1500cc production cars and finished second, beating several veterans.

Dean had just traded his Porsche Speedster (and $3,800 cash) for a new Porsche Spyder 550. He decided to enter a sports car race meet in Salinas, Calif. the following weekend.

Dean decided to drive his new Porsche to Salinas for the race meet instead of trailering it. He wanted more seat time and to try the high-performance car out on the open road.

On Sept. 30, 1955, Dean lost his life in a tragic accident at the junction of California Highways 466 and 41. At the age of 24 the charismatic actor and amateur race car driver was gone.

Gas City I-69 Speedway will commemorate Dean’s passion for motorsports Thursday night with the second annual “James Dean Classic” featuring the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series. The event is part of the annual James Dean Festival weekend that celebrates the hometown actor’s life.

Speedway officials are utilizing a 1950s theme for the evening, offering prizes for the best 1950s attire and $50 and the right to present the trophy in victory lane to the best James Dean “lookalike” in attendance.

Gappens feels promoting the race is an honor.

“It’s a real privilege to honor James Dean by commemorating his passion for motorsports with this race each year,” Gappens said. “Based on what I’ve learned about him from talking to Marcus and reading about his life, I have no doubt he would have loved watching today’s USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series drivers battling to win the James Dean Classic trophy Thursday night.”

Tickets for the “James Dean Classic” are available at the speedway ticket office. Spectator gates open at 4:30 p.m. and racing begins at 7:30 p.m. Adult general admission is $25. Children 12 and under are admitted free. The speedway also offers free parking and camping for fans.

Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports Strikes for Two Friday Night Wins!

Lonnie Wheatley, KNOXVILLE, Iowa (September 20, 2019) – To say that Friday was a banner night for the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports duo of Aaron Reutzel and Josh Baughman would be an understatement.

For the second time in less than a month, both racers found their way to victory lane in signature events.

In central Pennsylvania, Aaron Reutzel wired the field in the Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial for his 14th All Star Circuit of Champions score of the year and 16th overall.

Meanwhile, in Wheatland, MO, Josh Baughman took care of a field of 70 entries to win the second night of Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour preliminary competition at Lucas Oil Speedway’s “Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial” to earn the pole starting position for Saturday’s event finale.

“Hats off to this crew. This was one hell of a team effort,” an elated Aaron Reutzel said in victory lane, driver of the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports/Folkens Brothers Trucking/Fischer Body Shop/No. 87 sprint car. “Twenty second laps around this place is really hard. We’ve been working at trying to get better in the slick. Tonight, we basically opened our Port Royal notebook and put that in our car. It was like magic again.”

The triumph moves Reutzel closer to a second consecutive All Star Circuit of Champions title with his lead now standing at 98 points with just three nights of series competition remaining.

In Missouri, Baughman explained that, “We’ve been close here and just hadn’t been able to get it done, so this is pretty cool. We have Fischer Body Shop here and this is their backyard, so it’s really good to win for them and everybody back home. Aaron won tonight too at Williams Grove, so this is the second time we’ve both won on the same night. I feel like that says a lot about our entire team.”

The duo both reached victory lane on August 30 as well when Baughman won at Minnesota’s Jackson Motorplex and Reutzel reached victory lane at Ohio’s Attica Raceway Park.

Both drivers have their eyes set on more on Saturday night, as Reutzel tries for a $20,000 winner’s share in “The Dirt Classic” at Abbottstown, Pennsylvania’s Lincoln Speedway and Baughman goes from the pole in the $10,000-to-win Hockett/McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway.

Baughman Off to Strong Start at Hockett/McMilin Memorial

Lonnie Wheatley, WHEATLAND, Mo. (September 20, 2019) – Josh Baughman and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 17 Sprint Car team got off to a strong start at the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial by racing to a top-five finish in Thursday night’s opening leg of the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event at Wheatland, Missouri’s Lucas Oil Speedway.

The Odessa, TX, native kicked off the evening by winning the first of eight heat races and then secured the third starting position for the 25-lap feature by racing from fourth to second in his qualifying race.

Baughman finished out the night by racing to a fifth-place finish in the feature event to escape the night fifth in event points.

The second of three ASCS National Tour nights at the Hockett/McMillin Memorial takes place on Friday with Baughman vying for another strong outing to secure a position among the top eight in Saturday night’s finale after points from the two preliminary nights are tallied.

It was Baughman’s second ASCS National Tour top-five of the year in just four feature starts after posting a fourth-place run at Cameron, Missouri’s U.S. 36 Raceway in the series season-opening weekend.

Next Up: Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour “Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial” at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, MO, on Friday and Saturday.

Matt Stewart Motorsports

(Peoria, AZ, September 18, 2019) Peoria, Arizona sprint car racing veteran Matt Stewart will be in the cockpit of the Tony Everhart Motorsports #55 in this Saturday night’s Glenn Howard Memorial at Perris Auto Speedway. The race will mark the first time the two have joined forces for the prestigious event.

Stewart, a 32-year-old pilot, jumps into the Everhart Construction #55 fresh off a win and a second-place finish in the Joe Hunt Magnetos Wingless Sprint Car Series at The Stockton Dirt Track. Both finishes came in the Intents Racing #33 (pictured at the top of this release). The victory came on August 23rd. He followed that up with a second-place finish the ensuing night. A couple of weeks prior to those outings, the second-generation driver recorded a fourth-place finish at the Placerville Speedway in the same series.

Last year Stewart notched a win in the same car at Stockton. He also impressively drove the same carbureted car to a fifth-place finish against a full field of fuel injected USAC West Coast Sprint Cars at the Ventura Raceway.

Saturday’s race will be Stewart’s fifth of the year at the track he cut his teeth on racing Sprint Cars. A past winner of the American Motorcycle Association’s “Promoter of the Year Award,” he has contested the main events in three of his first four appearances on the Riverside County racing facility this year. His best finish came on June 29th when he started the 30-lapper in the 18th spot and finished ninth and thus earned the race’s “Hard Charger Award.”

Based in El Cajon, California, Tony Everhart’s name and cars have been around Southern California open-wheel racing for decades. And, not only in 410 Sprint Cars. In 1994, he drove to the first-ever California Lightning Sprint Car Series championship. He has also been a familiar competitor in the USAC Western Midget Series as well as in both the USAC/CRA and SCRA Sprint Car Associations.

Saturday’s Glenn Howard Memorial plays homage to a man who was not only a racer but also a car owner, official, innovator and racing business owner. The race also memorializes Howard’s late wife Pat and two Sprint Car driving sons, Steve and Gary.

Fans who want to see Stewart in action on Saturday night can find Perris Auto Speedway at 18700 Lake Perris Drive in the City of Perris (92571). Spectator gates will open at 5:00 P.M. and the first race will be at 7:00. The track website is http://perrisautospeedway.com/ and the track phone number is (951) 940-0134.

Reutzel Runs Season Win Total to 15 – Looks for More in this Weekend’s All Star Triple

Lonnie Wheatley, CLUTE, Texas (September 19, 2019) – Aaron Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team just keep rolling right along.

Reutzel and the Folkens Brothers Trucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X team made it at least one win in each of the five weekends since a top-five finish at the Knoxville Nationals with a $12,554 triumph at Atomic Speedway’s Dean Knittel Memorial finale on Saturday night.

The triumph ran Reutzel’s season win total to 15 and pushed his All Star Circuit of Champions points lead to 54 markers with just four nights of series competition remaining.

Three of those nights take place this weekend, beginning with Friday night’s Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial at central Pennsylvania’s Williams Grove Speedway before moving on to Lincoln Speedway on Saturday and then Maryland’s Hagerstown Speedway on Sunday.

This weekend’s triple wraps up a string of big money weekends in All Star Circuit of Champions competition with as much $30,000 up for grabs including a $20,000 winner’s share in Saturday’s Dirt Classic at Lincoln Speedway.

Last weekend’s three-race set at Chillicothe’s Atomic Speedway opened with Reutzel posting finishes of fifth and fourth on Thursday and Friday before climbing to the top rung of the ladder in Saturday’s big-money finale aboard the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment machine.

Reutzel began each of the three nights in identical fashion by establishing the night’s quickest time in qualifying. It ran his number of quick times on the season to an astounding total of 20.

“Some of it is our cars and some of it is just the pill draw,” Reutzel said of his penchant for timing in quickest on the night.

In the Thursday night feature, Reutzel entered the mix for the lead and then settled for fifth in the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspensions entry after contact with the wall.

“We were a little off in the feature, but I still thought we had a car to win,” Reutzel explains. “But I smacked the fence and knocked the ladder off so I just hung on for fifth.”

On Friday, Reutzel improved a position to finish fourth.

“We missed it in the feature, but we were starting up front and I thought I might be able to hold them off with the track conditions,” Reutzel says. “But I hit a rut and bounced off the track and we just rode in fourth the rest of the way.”

Reutzel and the BRM No. 87 saved the best of the weekend for last, leading all 30 laps of the feature to pocket the $12,554 winner’s share.

“We finally put the whole thing together between the car and the driver,” Reutzel says. “The car was flawless all night.”

Reutzel and crew will try to keep that momentum going with this weekend’s set of events in central Pennsylvania and Maryland.

2019 Quick Stats: 73 races, 15 wins, 35 top-fives, 48 top-tens.

Next Up: All Star Circuit of Champions at Williams Grove Speedway (Mechanicsburg, PA) on Friday, Lincoln Speedway (Abbottstown, PA) on Saturday and Hagerstown (MD) Speedway on Sunday.

ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF RACING AT ORANGE COUNTY SPEEDWAY TO BE SHOWCASED AT PPB MOTORSPORTS 2020

DISPLAY SPACE IS NOW OPEN FOR NEW OR PREVIOUS EXHIBITORS

OAKS, PA September 19, 2019 . . . When the Pioneer Pole Buildings Motorsports 2020 Presented By Sunoco Distributed By Insinger Performance Race Car And Trade Show opens on Friday, January 17th one special attraction that is sure to attract a huge amount of attention will be the Orange County Fair Speedway Reunion.

In 2019 the historic dirt track in Middletown, N.Y. celebrated their 100th year of operation. The celebration will continue at Pioneer Pole Buildings Motorsports 2020, a three-day show returning to the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, PA for an 11th year on Friday, Saturday and Sunday January 17th - 19th.

“Each year at the Motorsports Show, we have featured a special racing reunion,” Len Sammons, show organizer, said.

“In the past, we have featured Flemington, East Windsor, Reading, Trenton and Langhorne. Each of those tracks are no longer in operation, but thanks to the recent involvement of Halmar International’s Chris Larsen the future of Orange County is brighter than it has been in decades.”

Orange County Fair Speedway historian Doug Dulgarian, a former driver, will be helping organizing key drivers, car owners, officials and media members who based their career around the historic speedway to have them be an important part of the reunion.

Several historically significant race cars will be a major component of the showcase, as will hundreds of priceless speedway and race team artifacts.

Special autograph sessions will be planned with free collector cards signed by the great drivers and others on hand at the show who made their mark over the years on “The Hard Clay” right up to the 100th season finale Eastern States 200 on Sunday, October 27th.

“With Orange County having celebrated 2019 with a Centennial race weekend that featured a $100,000 to win Modified race we thought what a better way to end the great birthday celebration but at PPB Motorsports 2020,” said Sammons.

Exhibitors from the January, 2019 Motorsports show which featured an appearance by NASCAR legend Darrell Waltrip, have been invited to renew their display areas, move to new locations or expand their areas.

Show space is now open to new exhibitors. The 250,000 square feet of show space at this time is filling quickly as the show celebrates its 36th consecutive year of operation. For exhibitor information contact Danny Sammons at 609-888-3618 or email him at Danny@aarn.com.

Additional information on show plans including featured drivers and cars will be released in the near future. Check in at www.motorsportstradeshow.com for the latest available information.

 

 

ROA WINS AGAIN AT CANYON – DEBUTS NEW USAC/CRA RIDE THIS SATURDAY!

(Cypress, CA, September 18, 2019) Brody Roa capped a week that was anything but normal when he led every inch of the way to win the USAC Southwest Sprint Car Series race last Saturday at Arizona’s Canyon Speedway Park. This Saturday night at the Glenn Howard Memorial USAC/CRA race at Perris Auto Speedway, Roa will make his debut in the Dwight Cheney #42.

With seasonal monsoons baring down on the Peoria, Arizona dirt oval last week, officials canceled hot laps and went straight into qualifying. Behind the wheel of Tanner Grau’s #34, Roa timed in sixth quick in the 17-car field with a best lap of 14.82. He backed that up with a third-place finish in his 10-lap heat race and that put him on the pole for the main event.

Roa jumped into the lead at the drop of the green flag and led the entire 30-lap distance. However, the win was anything but easy. The second-place car kept the heat on all the way looking for the slightest bobble that never came. In addition, Roa and his pursuer both had to bob and weave their way through heavy lapped traffic.

The victory gave Roa two wins in three starts in Grau’s white sprint car this year. The first triumph came at the Dirt Track in Las Vegas in late February. All told, it was the fifth sprint car win of the 2019 campaign for the 28-year-old Garden Grove, California resident.

“I knew from running Tanner’s car at the beginning of the year, that he brings a good piece,” Roa told Dave Stall on “The Racer Radio Show” the day after the win. “It is a quality car that will run all night, is reliable and has speed. He does not do anything crazy. It is always fun running with Tanner.”

Next up in the Southwest Series will be a race at Central Arizona Speedway on September 28th. Roa will enter that race with a 32-point lead in the championship standings. In his only appearance on that track on May 18th, Roa placed second in the main.

This week, Roa heads back to Perris Auto Speedway for the Annual Glenn Howard Memorial. However, instead of being in his normal #91R, he will be steering the Dwight Cheney owned Racing Optics/Wilson Racing/STEELCO USA /Curb Records/Golden Harvest #42. That will not only be his ride for Saturday night, but it will be his home for the remainder of the season in USAC/CRA competition.

Going into Saturday’s race at The PAS, Roa is third in USAC/CRA points. He is only 10-points out of second and 68-points behind the leader.

In addition to the supporters on the #42 car, Roa would like to thank personal sponsors HD Industries, Burris Racing. “Biker” Bruce Fisher, Molecule, K-1 Race Gear, Shaver Specialties and Sander Engineering.

Great looking Brody Roa t-shirts are available now at the track or via mail. If you cannot make it to a race and would like to order one, please use the following link https://www.brodyroa.com/?post_type=product. You can see the design in one of the photos attached to this release.

Trenca Advances Throughout Canadian Sprint Car Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - OHSWEKEN, Ontario, Canada (Sept. 19, 2019) - Joe Trenca produced a 20th-place result last Saturday during the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals.

A whopping 60 drivers ventured to Ohsweken Speedway for the spectacle, which began with a 14th-place qualifying effort in group action for the Mucci Motorsports driver.

"We needed to be in the top eight to catch the heat race inversion," he said. "We ended up about three tenths of a second out of eighth so that put us behind from the start of the night."

Trenca started seventh and was able to pass one driver during a heat race. That relegated him toward the back of the B Main. He maneuvered from 11 th to seventh to transfer into the back of the main event. Trenca advanced a half-dozen positions to place 20th.

He will return to Patriot Sprint Tour competition this Friday and Saturday at Outlaw Speedway in Dundee, N.Y., where he earned his first career sprint car victory last month.

"Outlaw Speedway is one of our favorite tracks so we're excited for the weekend," Trenca said. "Hopefully we can back up our victory with another trip into Victory Lane."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 14 - Ohsweken Speedway in Ohsweken, Ontario, Canada - Qualifying: 14; Heat race: 6 (7); B Main: 7 (11); Feature: 20 (26).

SEASON STATS -

25 races, 1 win, 8 top fives, 13 top 10s, 18 top 15s, 24 top 20s

Championship, rookie battles in spotlight as MSA closes out 2019 season

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) September 19, 2019 – After five grueling months and countless miles of travel to eight different tracks throughout the state of Wisconsin, the 20th season of Midwest Sprint Car Association competition is set to draw to a close with a doubleheader weekend of action, which will decide this year’s hotly contested battles for the 2019 series championship and rookie of the year award.

The final two races of the 2019 campaign will take place on two vastly different tracks as the weekend will kick off with the first annual Fuzzy Fassbender Memorial Race at the high-speed horsepower half-mile at the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam, Wis. on Friday, Sept. 27 before wrapping up the season on Saturday, Sept. 28 at the third-mile Plymouth Dirt Track bullring at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis.

Heading into the season finale weekend, four-time MSA champion Kurt Davis South Milwaukee holds a 38-point lead over second-year MSA competitor Travis Arenz of Sheboygan. The two hard-charging drivers have traded the top spot throughout the season and there is no doubt sparks will fly as they square off with the coveted MSA title on the line.

In addition, 2018 Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint car champion Justin Miller of Plymouth remains in mathematical contention for the title heading into championship weekend 133 points behind Davis.

A perennial fixture at the top of the MSA standings, Davis has put together another stellar season include three A-main victories, 14 top-five and a series-leading 23 top-10 A-main showings in 24 MSA races this season.

Although he did not originally intend to run the full MSA schedule in 2019, everything has fallen into place for the 2018 MSA champion to make yet another title bid.

“We were only going to race part time this year and have my son, Tyler, do the whole season,” Davis said. “Then we started running really well, took the point lead and decided to keep going. My season started out with a junked race car. My crew put together another car and here we are winning three features so far, including my 60th MSA feature victory and leading the points.

“I love the competitive challenge the MSA group has,” he said. “This group of cars has the most underrated weekly racers in the country. We’ve had 12 different winners this year so far with some racers that have won in the past, but yet have not found the winner’s circle so far this season.”

Davis is eager to put a bow on his fifth MSA championship with strong performances to close out the season at Dodge County and Plymouth.

“My approach to the last weekend of the season is to go through the car from front to back, prepare the trailer, get some new tires and go out and win,” Davis said.

Arenz has been nothing short of spectacular this season as he has racked up a series-leading six A-main victories in 2019, to go along with a series-leading 15 top-five and 18 top-10 A-main showings in 24 MSA events.

“I personally set a few goals at the beginning of the year,” Arenz said. “I wanted to be a top-three points contender throughout the season and be able to battle for a championship at season’s end. My other goal this year was to keep getting better week in and week out and to be consistent every race unlike last year.”

While Arenz has never been a driver to lack confidence in his abilities behind the wheel, he has been pleasantly surprised by his victory output against a deep and highly competitive field of MSA competitors.

“I can’t say I was expecting to crank out six wins this year so far,” Arenz said. “And to have done so against the fierce competition in the 360 group says a lot. I knew if I was consistent and kept the car in one piece throughout the season, that I would have a potential shot at winning a championship. I have a lot of keys to my success this season. I can’t really say it’s been one thing. Everything from the time spent in the shop, good equipment, advice/help from veteran racers and the mindset to never give up and to keep getting better have contributed to the success this year.”

Arenz heads into the final weekend of the 2019 MSA season with a clear goal of adding to his resume of seven career MSA A-main victories.

“My approach to the last weekend of the season is simple,” Arenz said. “I need to out there and win the last two nights. We’ve got nothing to lose.”

This year’s MSA rookie of the year battle has been one for the ages with no less than 13 rookies joining the fray this season.

Former Plymouth Dirt Track Racing B Mod champion, Brandon Berth of Cascade enters the final weekend with a 28-point lead over former Micro Sprint competitor Jack Vanderboom of Dousman in the chase for the MSA Rookie of the Year Award.

“Going into the season, our goals were to race the full MSA schedule and try for rookie of the year in MSA and at Plymouth,” Berth said. “I wanted to try every race to learn as much as we could. The biggest challenge this year has been adjusting to the tracks. With the Sport Mod, we didn’t do as much traveling and were pretty comfortable when running Plymouth. It has shown at times when doing some of our traveling shows, we’ve struggled at times. But it’s been great to learn so much while traveling like we have.”

Berth, who has racked up two top-five and five top-10 A-main showings in MSA action this season, is coming off a career-best third-place A-main showing at Plymouth on Sept. 14.

“The highlight for this year has been winning my first heat race at Beaver Dam Raceway a few weeks ago,” Berth said. “It was pretty special because it was my nephew Kason’s third birthday. He’s been sure to remind me most nights that I didn’t win, so getting the win for his birthday was pretty special for both of us.”

Berth says earning the MSA Rookie of the Year Award would be an achievement that would serve as a fitting culmination of countless hours of hard work and dedication from those associated with his team.

“Winning the rookie of the year for MSA would be really special due to all the time and work we’ve put into everything,” Berth said. “Everybody that races puts in so much time and to be able to come out and get our goal that we set out at the beginning of the year would be special. We’ve been talking about running this whole schedule for over a year, so it has been a pretty big focus for a while. We’ve had great competition all year for this title and everybody we race against have been super awesome. It has been fun no matter what happens in the closing nights of the year.”

Berth is highly focused on the task at hand as he heads into the final MSA doubleheader weekend of the 2019 campaign.

“My approach for the final weekend is do what we have been doing the last couple of weeks,” Berth “Don’t put ourselves in positions we shouldn’t be in, race our own race and don’t think about where we need to be. We need to go out and do our thing and whatever happens happens. Jack has been a great competitor and it has been fun. I’m glad there’s some pressure going into the final weekend to make things really interesting. Anything can happen yet.”

As one of the youngest competitors in the MSA ranks, 16-year-old Jack Vanderboom has turned many heads this year in his rookie season behind the wheel of a full-sized Sprint Car after enjoying success in the Micro Sprint ranks.

“The transition from the Micro Sprint to the 360 Sprint Car has definitely been a challenge, especially at the start of the season,” Vanderboom said. “I’m trying to figure out how to drive the car depending on the setup or the conditions of the track. The biggest challenge for me has definitely been the car count because in the Micros, the car count was slim. It was a great class to get started in, but I personally haven’t raced with more than 16 cars at max on a good night in the Micros and that has been a struggle for me this season.”

Vanderboom, who has tallied one top-five and two top-10 A-main showings this year, points to a career-best runner-up showing at The Plymouth Dirt Track has the highlight of his 2019 season so far.

“I think the highlight of my season so far was my second-place finish in the feature a few weeks back,” Vanderboom said. “I definitely learned a lot that night racing alongside Jim Melis that whole race. We had a great battle going between the two of us that night. Jim is a great driver and tough to beat. He proved that to me that night, but I learned a lot from watching him and getting through traffic and picking the best line for me that whole race was a big stepping point for me as a driver and also for our crew involving setup and everything that goes into the car on a weekly basis I wouldn’t be here without all the help we’ve had the whole way.

“I think winning the MSA rookie of the year title would definitely be a huge accomplishment and goal of mine because it shows how much I improved over the course of the season,” he said. “With the amount of rookie drivers we have, it has proven to be a very difficult task, but it would be a huge accomplishment to achieve for me as a driver.”

Vanderboom is taking a cautiously optimistic approach to the last weekend of the 2019 MSA season.

“Truly our goal for the final weekend of the season is to keep the car in one piece and finish as best as I can in the last two,” Vanderboom said. “Our focus at Dodge County is to keep the car together and just finish before the championship night at Plymouth.”

Action at The Dodge County Fairgrounds will begin with hot laps at 6 p.m. and racing at 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 27. The program will also include the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series, A Modifieds and B Modifieds.

The 2019 MSA season will conclude at The Plymouth Dirt Track on Saturday, Sept. 28 with hot laps at 5 p.m. and racing at 6 p.m. The Wisconsin Sprint Car Championships will include the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series, Wisconsin Wingless Sprint Cars and IRA Lightning Sprint Cars.

SWEENEY RUSH SPORTSMAN MODS & RUSH SPRINTS PART OF "APPLE FESTIVAL NATIONALS" THIS WEEKEND AT SHARON; HOVIS TOUR RACE FOR MODS WHILE SPRINTS FEATURED IN A COMPLETE BONNELL'S ROD SHOP SHOW FRIDAY

 September 18, 2019

(By Mike Leone)

(Hartford, OH)...The Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Racing Series powered by Pace Performance is set for a doubleheader of action this weekend (September 20-21) at Sharon Speedway for the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds and RUSH Sprint Cars as part of the "Apple Festival Nationals". The Sportsman Modifieds will be competing in a Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Touring Series event on Friday and Saturday, while the Sprint Cars will run their complete Bonnell's Rod Shop Weekly Series event on Friday night and will head to Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway on Saturday night. Action at Sharon gets underway at 6 p.m. both nights.

For the Sportsman Modifieds, Friday will see only heat races contested then on Saturday will be the last chance B main(s) and 25-lap feature event paying $800 to-win. New York racers Adam Hilton and Greg Martin split wins during the 2014 "Apple Festival Nationals, while Martin won the 2015 event. Chas Wolbert was victorious in the 2016 event, while Justin Shea was the 2017 winner. Last year's Saturday portion was rained out and completed this year on May 11 with Wolbert scoring the victory.

The RUSH Sportsman Modifieds have produced strong car counts all year at Sharon Speedway; in fact, this is the fourth straight year the division's home track has averaged at least a full field of cars! Defending Tour Champion, Garrett Krummert, has won both Tour point races at Sharon this year and has a 14-point lead on Jim Rasey, who is new to the class in 2019. Wolbert, Kole Holden, and Rob Kristyak are third through fifth in points. Overall this year at Sharon, Wolbert leads the way with four wins to Krummert's three, and Kristyak's two. Holden, the 2019 track champion, and Josh Deems have also been victorious. Kristyak and Wolbert meanwhile remain tied for RUSH's $3,000 to-win Weekly Series Championship with Krummert on their heels.

At the end of Saturday night's program, the "Wheelman" Non-Winners race for the Sportsman Modifieds presented by Ohio Intra Express and C&R Tire will take place. There have been seven different winners in 10 races with Tony Tatgenhorst (three) and David Kalb, Jr. (two) being the only repeat winners. This will be the championship event. Tatgenhorst leads the points by six; however, will be ineligible to compete now due to him winning his first career feature at Pittsburgh on September 7. That means most likely the championship will come down between one-time winners Cameron Nastasi and Amelia Clay as just six points separate the two. Clayton Deems and Greg Porter complete the top five points-paying positions.

The RUSH Sprint Cars are meanwhile coming off the "Empire State Classic" weekend where they hit the road for New York for three events; unfortunately, the finale at Genesee was rained out. Brian Woodhall won Friday's first ever show at Ransomville and Chad Ruhlman captured Saturday's "Topless Nationals", while Jeremy Weaver won the overall $300 points title presented by CNC Specialties, Intense Fab & Design, and Pace Performance.

Mother Nature hasn't been kind to the RUSH Sprint Cars at Sharon. At last year's "Apple Festival Nationals" event, their feature was on the track when it rained out with the purse monies being split and that led into 2019 where the second year division has only been able to complete four of the 10 scheduled events. There have been three different winners in those four races; only defending Series Champion, Chad Ruhlman, has been able to repeat. Brian Woodhall and Andy Feil have earned their first career RUSH Series wins at Sharon this year. Feil's came in the last race on August 24 winning a side-by-side thriller over Brian Ruhlman. Zach Morrow, who leads the $5,000 to-win points, has yet to win at Sharon in his career. Woodhall is second in points with fast closing Ruhlman, while Weaver is fourth and has been close to his first Sprint win with four runner-up finishes this year. Chad's son Kevin Ruhlman is fifth in points and leads the "Futures Cup" points.

"We have to thank Sharon Speedway for their continued support of both the RUSH Sportsman Modified and RUSH Sprint Car divisions and to include them in their Apple Festival Nationals," stated RUSH Director Vicki Emig. "Sharon has been the home for the RUSH Mods since they debuted in 2014 and have been on their weekly schedule since 2015. Sharon really stepped up and gave the Sprints 11 shows- it's just too bad Mother Nature wasn't cooperative; however, this weekend's forecast looks great. The various points races in both classes are really heating up."

For the Modifieds, Precise Racing Products will award a $100 gift card for the "Pedal Down" Hard Charger that passes the most cars on Saturday night. The TBM Brakes "Tough Brake of the Night" will award three bottles of Xtreme6 Racing Brake Fluid valued at approximately $45 along with a certificate for a discount off any TBM Brakes purchase.

Officials will also determine the new Dirt Defender "Defensive Drive" to the driver that best defended his position throughout the night, and will receive a $40 product package. The award could go to a driver holding off another for the final heat race or B main transfer position, a driver denying a hard charging racer a feature win, a move to stay on the lead lap before a caution, or any such deserving move.

Officials will also determine the Sherwood Racing Wheels "Man of Steel" award winner as one that bounced back from an earlier mishap to finish the event strongly. The selected driver will receive a certificate for a free Sherwood Racing Wheel. The feature winner will also receive a Sunoco 5-Gallon Race Jug.

Sportsman Modified Payoff: 1. $800 2. $500 3. $350 4. $300 5. $250 6. $220 7. $180 8. $175 9. $170 10. $165 11. $160 12. $155 13. $150 14. $145 15. $140 16. $135 17. $130 18-24. $125. Tow/Non-Qualifier $65.

RUSH Sprint Car Payoff: 1. $500 2. $250 3. $225 4. $200 5. $180 6. $170 7. $165 8. $160 9. $155 10. $150 11. $145 12-13. $140 14-15. $135 16-17. $130 18-24. $125. Tow $50.

Lucas Oil Speedway Spotlight: Australian Bogucki on the rise in ASCS Winged Sprints entering Hockett-McMillin Memorial

WHEATLAND, Missouri (September 18, 2019) - One of the ASCS Winged Sprint drivers to keep an eye on at this weekend's 9th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial began his racing journey about as far from rural south-central Missouri as you can get.

Scott Bogucki is from McLaren Vale, South Australia, where he grew up admiring a grandfather who raced motocross. Scott later bought a Sprint car and starting winning races at a couple of nearby dirt tracks.

But Bogucki dreamed of more - like racing for a living in the United States.

"With the way the dollar is (in Australia) it's like 70 cents on the dollar there. It's become so expensive to race at home," Bogucki said. "My main reason for coming here, I wanted to race professionally."

After finishing eighth in points as a rookie on the ASCS national tour last season, Bogucki is enjoying a breakout 2019. He's third in points behind Sam Hafertepe and Blake Hahn entering this weekend's three-night Hockett-McMillin Memorial at Wheatland, which fires up Thursday night.

Bogucki has two wins and 10 top-five finishes in 25 events.

"The season has gone pretty good," Bogucki said in a phone interview Wednesday, en route to Missouri from his race shop in Dallas, Texas. "We've had some bad luck and we've had some good luck. Most of all, we've been super consistent.

"At the start of the year, I wanted to make sure that I took few, if any, provisionals. So far, I've only had to take one. We took seven or eight last year. We've achieved more-consistent car speed and more consistent results than last year, which was our goal."

Bogucki, 30, said going through the national tour for the second time has made a big difference. Not only is he seeing tracks for at least the second time, he's more comfortable adapting to the nomadic lifestyle that goes with the sport.

"It's being out on the road for months and months at a time and being more mentally prepared for what it takes," Bogucki said. "You really don't understand what it's all about until you experience it once."

When he first came to American in 2012, Bogucki served as a crew member for veteran driver Johnny Herrera. He said what he learned from Herrera was invaluable and the connections he made were key.

"Though Johnny, I got to meet a lot of great people, including my engine builder Lee Nelson," Bogucki said. "I got to meet one of the most-famous crew chiefs in the world, Kenny Woodruff. We're still great friends and he will be there this weekend with me."

Bogucki spends 10 months of the year in the United States, returning to Australia in December and January. He said his parents and sister, back home, and girlfriend in Texas keep him inspired when the need arises.

"A lot of success comes from confidence," he said. "When your confidence gets beat down, those people are there to pick me back up."

He returns to Lucas Oil Speedway with confidence after his runner-up finish to Hafertepe in last year's $10,000-to-win Hockett-McMillin finale.

"I love the place, but hadn't been really great on any of my visits to Wheatland until last year," he said. "I'm hoping to come in this weekend and start off with the speed that we finished with last year."

The Hockett-McMillin Memorial features the Lucas Oil ASCS Winged Sprint Cars and POWRi WAR Sprints in one of open-wheel's crown jewels. Full programs for the ASCS Winged Sprints are set for Thursday and Friday, paying $3,000 to win the features and helping set the field for Saturday's $10,000-to-win feature.

The WAR Sprints will be split with half running on Thursday and half on Friday. Drivers will be competing for points every time they hit the track to gather points for Saturday, when the feature will pay $3,077. The features on Thursday and Friday will pay $1,377 to win.

"APPLE FESTIVAL NATIONALS" THIS FRIDAY & SATURDAY NIGHT AT SHARON; MOST OF THE REGION'S DIVISIONS IN ACTION; BIG-BLOCK MODS HIGHLIGHT FRIDAY; "410" SPRINTS ON SATURDAY FOR $3000

by Mike Leone

Hartford, OH September 18, 2019 Sharon Speedway will conclude the 90th anniversary season this weekend with the running of the annual "Apple Festival Nationals" on Friday and Saturday night (September 20-21). Nine different divisions will compete. The Big-Block Modifieds, RUSH Sprint Cars, Sportsman Dwarf Cars, and Junior Sprints will run a complete show on Friday night, while the "410" Sprint Cars and Mod Lites will run their complete shows on Saturday night. The Penn-Ohio Pro Stock Championship Series, RUSH Sportsman Modified Touring Series, and Elite Econo Mod Series will have their shows split over the two nights with their features on Saturday night. Race time is 6 p.m. both nights.

For the third straight year, the "410" Sprint Cars will be part of the "Apple Festival Nationals" racing for $3,000 to-win, $250 to-start. It's been a competitive year for the Sprints with six different winners in eight races following the 2018 season that saw eight different winners in eight races! This year, Cole Duncan and Dave Blaney have been the only repeat winners, while A.J. Flick, Dale Blaney (All Stars), Chad Kemenah and Sye Lynch (FAST) have also picked up wins. Dave Blaney has already indicated he will be in competition on Saturday night. The hot lap/group qualifying format will be utilized that has been used on all of the Menards "Super Series" Sprint Car events. Mufflers are not required and there's no registration or entry fees.

The Big-Block Modifieds will again return to headline Friday's event running a complete show for $1,500 to-win, $150 to-start. Due to rain and a more limited schedule in 2019, the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Modifieds have only completed one show to date. That was back on July 6 for the "Lou Blaney Memorial" when Rex King, Jr. won his 26th career Sharon feature, worth $2,000. His father Rex, Sr. leads the all-time win list with 54 victories.

Mother Nature hasn't been kind to the RUSH Sprint Cars at Sharon. At last year's event, their feature was on the track when it rained out with the purse monies being split and that led into 2019 where the second year division has only been able to complete four of the 10 scheduled events. There have been three different winners in those four races; only defending Series Champion, Chad Ruhlman, has been able to repeat. Brian Woodhall and Andy Feil have earned their first career RUSH Series wins at Sharon this year. Feil's came in the last race on August 24 winning a side-by-side thriller over Brian Ruhlman. Zach Morrow, who leads the $5,000 to-win points, has yet to win at Sharon in his career.

The Mod Lites and Sportsman Dwarf Cars will return once again for their season's only appearance as part of the "Apple Festival Nationals". The Dwarfs complete program will again take place on Friday night for $500 to-win. The Dwarfs have competed 20 times over the years at Sharon with 10 different winners as Josh Walker is the all-time winner with seven. The Mod Lites move over to the Saturday night program this year in the second annual "Mark Marcucci Memorial" paying $1,000 to-win for the former standout racer that lost his in an automobile accident in April 2018. Marcucci won the 2016 "Apple Festival Nationals" and is still the division's all-time winner at Mercer Raceway Park.

The Homak Penn-Ohio Pro Stock Championship Series leads the way of the three divisions seeing their programs split over the two nights with heats on Friday night and the balance of their show on Saturday night. Saturday's Stock main will pay $2,000 to-win. Hunter Exley leads the Series points by eight over Jason Fosnaught with Chris McGuire, Jackson Humanic, and Shaun Hooks completing the top five.

Thus far this season in Gibson Insurance Agency action, Chris Schneider leads the way with three victories including the $2,000 to-win 2018 "Apple Festival Nationals" make-up feature run on May 11. It's been a career best season for Curt J. Bish. Bish ended a four-year winless drought at the track with his June 29 victory, added another win on August 3 that propelled him to his first track championship, then won the $10,000 "Steel Valley Nationals" on September 7. On May 18, Bobby Whitling won for the first time at Sharon since 2012. June 8 saw 2018 champ, Chris McGuire, end nearly a two-year winless streak. And most recently, Paul Davis captured his first win in over two years on August 10.

The Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Sportsman Modified Tour has produced strong counts this year at Sharon including 36 for the 2018 "Apple Festival Nationals" make-up on May 11 followed by 28 on August 3 then 33 for RUSH's annual "Manufacturers Night". Defending Tour Champion, Garrett Krummert, has won both Tour point races at Sharon this year and has a 14-point lead on Jim Rasey. Chas Wolbert, Kole Holden, and Rob Kristyak are third through fifth in points. Saturday's feature will pay $800 to-win. Overall this year at Sharon, Wolbert leads the way with four wins to Krummert's three, and Kristyak's two. Holden, the 2019 track champion, and Josh Deems have also been victorious. Kristyak and Wolbert meanwhile remain tied for RUSH's $3,000 to-win Weekly Series Championship.

At the end of Saturday night's program, the "Wheelman" Non-Winners race presented by Ohio Intra Express and C&R Tire will take place. There have been seven different winners in 10 races with Tony Tatgenhorst (three) and David Kalb, Jr. (two) being the only repeat winners. This will be the championship event. Tatgenhorst leads the points by six; however, will be ineligible to compete now due to him winning his first career feature at Pittsburgh on September 7. That means most likely the championship will come down between one-time winners Cameron Nastasi and Amelia Clay as just six points separate the two. Clayton Deems and Greg Porter complete the top five points-paying positions.

The Elite Series for the Econo Mods round out the program competing for $750 to-win. The Summit Racing Equipment-sponsored division produced six different winners in eight events this season at Sharon. The only repeat winners were new champion, Dustin DeMattia, and Ty Rhoades, who most recently captured the biggest race in his career two weeks ago earning $2,000 in the Elite event over a record field of 37 cars. Other winners include Kyle Miller, Eric Wilson, Jacob Eucker, and Andy Buckley.

One-way driver radios are mandatory for all divisions with the channel 454.000. AMB/MyLaps transponders are required for all divisions except the Dwarf Cars. Rentals are available for $25 for the weekend. If you've yet to compete at Sharon this year, please try and complete the registration form ahead of time and bring it with you completed; there's no fee for the Sharon registration. http://www.sharonspeedway.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/RegistrationFormSharon2019B.pdf

Race teams will be directed where to park when they arrive. All Dwarf Cars, Mod Lites, and Jr. Sprints will park in the turns three and four overflow parking. Pit pass sales will begin at 3 p.m. with grandstands at 4 both days. A drivers meeting will be held before cars hit the speedway.

Grandstand admission for those 14 and over is $15 each day. The backstretch grandstands will only be open for those with pit passes. Patio seating upgrades are just $5 and fan suite seating upgrades are just $20 over the cost of general admission. These can be reserved on race night in the track office. As always, children under 14 and parking are always FREE! Pit passes are $35 each day. Camping is free of charge and opens Wednesday at 5 p.m. As a reminder, coolers nor outside food or beverages are not permitted.

Breakfast will be served in the main concession on Saturday morning from 8:30-11 a.m. and lunch from 12-2 p.m. in the pit concession. The band Fastrack will be playing after the races on Friday night and there will be a bonfire.

I am looking forward to working with these guys and can’t wait to get going.”

F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg would like to thank Econo Lube-n-Tune and Brakes, Geico Local Office, PitStopUSA, Lucas Oil, Pacific Highway Rentals, Autism Awareness, FVP, and CRV Carbon Solutions for their support in 2019.

Walter, Torque Racing go top-15 with IRA, prep for season finale

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) September 18, 2019 – Following a weekend away from the racetrack, Josh Walter and the Torque Racing team returned to action by turning in yet another rock solid effort with the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series for the Scott Semmelmann Memorial Race at Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver Dam, Wis. on Saturday, Sept. 14.

Walter began the evening by qualifying 16th in the 26-car IRA field with a lap of 12.242 seconds. The 14th-year driver then lined up sixth and finished fifth in the first 10-lap IRA heat race to advance to the 30-lap A main.

The Plymouth resident rolled off from the 12th starting spot in the main event before coming home 13th in a race won by Bill Balog.

“It was consistent night for us,” Walter said. “We were struggling with turn 3 and 4 all night, but had a really good car for turns 1 and 2. Early in the night, we struggled a bit with forward drive off the corners in qualifying and the heat race. By the time the A main rolled around, we tried a completely new setup and it really seemed to make a difference with the handling of the car. We still lacked some forward drive, but I felt like I could put the car anywhere on the track.”

The team will close out the 2019 season with the IRA at the season-ending event Wisconsin Sprint Car Championships at The Plymouth Dirt at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, Sept. 28. The all-Sprint Car event will feature the IRA 410 Sprint Cars, Midwest Sprint Car Association 360 Sprint Cars, Wisconsin Wingless Sprint Cars and IRA Lightning Sprint Cars.

Hot laps will begin at 5 p.m. with qualifying and racing to follow.

Walter, who owns two A-main victories in MSA 360 Sprint Car competition at The Plymouth Dirt Track this season, is eager to return to his hometown track, where he placed 14th in IRA A-main action on Saturday, Aug. 31.

“We are looking forward to Plymouth on the 28th,” Walter said. “We are going to fine tune the new setup and see what happens. It's exciting to know that we are improving every time we go to a track for the second time. This will be our second race this year with the 410 at Plymouth, so we are looking to improve in qualifying and our A-main finish from our last visit.”

Wilson Visiting BAPS, Williams Grove, Lincoln and Hagerstown This Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - CHILLICOTHE, Ohio (Sept. 18, 2019) - This weekend will be the final trip to Central Pennsylvania and Maryland during Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions competition this season for Greg Wilson.

Wilson and his Hercules Tires, DNC Hydraulics, Ohio Logistics and Gear Off Road backed team will compete with the series on Friday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa.; on Saturday at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa.; and on Sunday at Hagerstown Speedway in Hagerstown, Md. The weekend begins with a non-sanctioned race on Thursday at BAPS Motor Speedway in York Haven, Pa.

"It's always good to run against that type of competition in their backyard," he said. "It gives you a gauge on where you stand and where you need to improve. I'm interested to see if we can put together a solid end to the season. If we could have a couple of good runs in Pennsylvania it's something to be proud of."

Wilson enters the weekend ranked sixth in the All Star championship standings. After this weekend there is only one All Star race remaining this season.

Wilson tackled a trio of All Star shows at Atomic Speedway last weekend during the Dean Knittel Memorial. He posted feature results of 12 th, 11th and 17th, respectively. His best result came on Friday with a charge from 20th to 11th , which was tied for the most cars passed in the main event.

"Looking back on it all the way back to Labor Day Weekend we had some issues and thought we had it covered," he said. "We've struggled since then. We double and triple-checked some things, but we were missing something. Last weekend we were mediocre on Thursday and didn't go far enough with the adjustments in the feature. On Friday we had a really good race car until the track took rubber. On Saturday we battled the car all night long. We just have been chasing it. We came home and started checking the frame and some other stuff and realized we had a bigger issue than we thought we had. We didn't catch it because you had to put straight edges on it."

The team had the chassis repaired and rebuilt the race car this week in preparation for the four upcoming races.

Hagar Heading to Hockett/McMillin Memorial After Misfortune During Ralph Henson Memorial

Inside Line Promotions - LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Sept. 18, 2019) - Derek Hagar was on track to pocket another top-five result last Saturday during the 12 th annual Ralph Henson Memorial.

Hagar hustled into the top five before I-30 Speedway took rubber and he was running just outside a spot on the podium when a tire blew in the final laps of the ASCS Mid-South Region and ASCS Sooner Region feature.

"Everyone was stacking up on the bottom and I could roll the middle really well," he said. "It was working good until the track took rubber. Then I got to the bottom and kind of rode. We were coming off turn two when the tire blew with about two laps to go. It was unfortunate because we had a good run going."

Hagar, who was credited with a 14th-place result, had passed a lot of cars throughout the night. He charged from eighth to fourth during both a heat race and the Race of Champions.

"It was a good car count," he said. "My pill draw skills aren't the best. We started in the back of the heat race and got up to fourth, which put me 10th in points. We kept passing cars in the feature and were on our way to a good result when the tire let go."

Hagar was able to capitalize on a strong run the previous weekend as he maneuvered from 11th to fifth during the Fall Nationals at Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark. It was his 20 th top five of the season.

"We got up to third and we had a long red," he said. "Our right rear tire got low so that hurt us. The track had a big, gnarly cushion and there were some hail mary slide jobs. We tried to take it easy and finish the race and we ended up coming home fifth."

Next up for Hagar is the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial this Thursday through Saturday at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo. He won the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event in 2014.

"It's been a special event for us and we've had some good success with a wing on and in non-wing," he said. "I'm excited to race these three nights and see where we stack up with these guys."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 14 - I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark. - Heat race: 4 (8); Race of Champions: 4 (8); Feature: 14 (10).

Lawrence's Luck Runs Out During Attempt at Last-Lap Pass for Win

Inside Line Promotions - BELLS, Texas (Sept. 18, 2019) - Zane Lawrence went for gold on Saturday with a last-lap slide job, but misfortune struck during the Texas Sprint Series show at Grayson County Speedway.

Lawrence, who was driving for Bob Odom, kicked off the night by winning his heat race after lining up fifth. He started the feature from the outside of the fourth row.

"I've always been fast at this track and been in contention to win, but just haven't been able to pull it off yet," he said. "We had a good car in the heat and knew we would for the feature as well even though we were starting mid-pack."

Lawrence made his way toward the front of the field quickly and battled for the lead on several occasions. Cautions played a factor each time Lawrence took the lead and it reverted the running order to the previous lap. An intense battle took place during the final six laps of the feature between Lawrence and two other competitors. Lawrence tried to pull a slide job on the last lap, but he was unable to complete the pass and spun. That relegated him to an 11th-place finish.

"We were so close to finally getting a win in Bob's car," he said. "I wish we would have been able to pull that one off."

Lawrence's next race will be this Saturday at Kennedale Speedway Park in Kennedale, Texas, with the Texas Sprint Series.

Bellm Set for Hockett/McMillin Memorial after another Top Five Run

Lonnie Wheatley, NIXA, Mo. (September 18, 2019) – Aster posting another top-five finish this past weekend at Lake Ozark Speedway, Kyle Bellm and the No. 14k Sprint Car team are ready for Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour action with this weekend’s “Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin” Memorial at Wheatland, Missouri’s Lucas Oil Speedway.

“It’s close to home for us and to get a win in this race that honors Jesse and Daniel would really mean a lot to us,” Bellm explains.

Bellm kicked off last year’s Hockett/McMillin Memorial with a fifth-place run. It’s an effort he hopes to duplicate during the Thursday and Friday preliminary events to set the stage for Saturday night’s $10,000-to-win finale.

“If we can just put together top-ten finishes each of the first two nights, that should put us in good shape for Saturday night,” Bellm explains. “We just need to draw decent and then survive the heat races and qualifiers.”

Bellm goes into the weekend after posting a fifth-place finish at Eldon, Missouri’s Lake Ozark Speedway on Saturday night. But he felt that he could have had more.

“We won the heat race, then I made one too many mistakes trying to make the pass for second and that cost us a couple of positions,” Bellm says. “The car was good, I feel good about where we’re at with it. I just have to clean some stuff up on my end and I believe we can be up front.”

Bellm’s fifth-place finish was his sixth top-five run and 15th overall top-ten of the season. Bellm’s most recent pair of Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour starts resulted in a pair of top-ten finishes at Lake Ozark Speedway.

He will be looking to add to those numbers on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

The Kyle Bellm Racing efforts are made possible with support from marketing partners including Greenworks Nursery, Landscapes Awarded, Christian County Collision Repair, Bybee Lawn Care, PPG Automotive Finishes, Colorvision, Schure Built Suspensions, Schaeffers Racing Oil and Valley Park West Retirement Living.

Quick Stats: 28 Races, 1 win, 6 top-fives, 15 top-tens.

Carney Rolls into Hockett/McMillin Memorial after Three Consecutive Wins

Lonnie Wheatley, EL PASO, Texas (September 18, 2019) – It’s safe to say that El Paso, TX, native John Carney II is going into this weekend’s Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial at Wheatland, Missouri’s Lucas Oil Speedway on a bit of a roll.

Sitting fifth in Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour points as the series gets back into action with the three-night stand on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Carney rides a wave of three consecutive wins into the weekend.

And he has done it in two different countries with a two-night sweep at Edmonton, Alberta, Canada’s Castrol Raceway on September 6-7 and then a 305-ci Sprint Car score on Saturday night at Fort Worth’s Texas Motor Speedway.

Carney made his first journey to Castrol Raceway to drive for Arizona’s Kaylene and Alan Verville and made the most of it with wins on both Friday and Saturday night.

“We started second both nights and led every lap of both features,” Carney says. “The car handled really well and the motor was strong, everything went about as well as it could have.”

Carney enjoyed his first Canadian outing.

“I liked the track and like the format they used,” Carney explains. “It’s fun to go do something a little different just to change things up a little bit.”

Carney’s 305-ci effort aboard David Luckie’s No. 45 Sprint Car on Saturday night was a last-minute decision.

“It was an uplanned deal, we just kind of decided that I would drive the car on Saturday night after David drove it on Friday,” Carney explains.

“I kind of wish I had run both nights though, I think I would have won a lot easier on Saturday night,” Carney laughs. “As it was, I barely got by (Jake) Bubak at the end. It was the first time in a 305 in quite a while, so it felt good to know I can still get going pretty well in one of those.”

This weekend, it’s back to Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour competition aboard the Sander Construction/South Plains Auto Transport/Mesilla Valley Transportation No. J2 Sprint Car.

And Carney has found the Lucas Oil Speedway to his liking in the past.

“We have had some podiums there and hopefully we can put ourselves in position for more this weekend,” Carney explains. “Last year, I felt like we could have won this race. It’s all about getting through the heats and qualifiers and getting into position to win it.”

The Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial gets under way with the first of three full nights of action on Thursday.

John Carney Racing is made possible by the support of invaluable partners including Danny Sander Construction, South Plains Auto Transport, Mesilla Valley Transportation, Jackson Compaction, Vado Speedway Park, CSR Garage, Momentum Racing Suspensions, Performance Plus, Performance Motor Coach, Raider Graphix, MSD Ignition, Joe Hunt Magnetos and Bell Helmets.

Quick Stats: 32 Races, 6 Wins, 18 top-fives, 22 top-tens.

Bacon Shakin’ Things Up in Missouri and Illinois this Weekend

Lonnie Wheatley, WINCHESTER, Ind. (September 18, 2019) – Seven complete races over the course of just four days in three different cars.

It’s a task that is fitting for the racer carrying “The Macho Man” moniker.

Brady Bacon will take in this weekend’s Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial at Wheatland, Missouri’s Lucas Oil Speedway on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The Broken Arrow, OK, native will pull double-duty all three nights, piloting the BBR No. 99 Sprint Car in Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour winged 360-Sprint Car portion and the Longworth No. 410 in non-wing WAR Sprint Car action.

Bacon will then round out the weekend with Sunday’s USAC Silver Crown “Bettenhausen 100” at Springfield’s Illinois State Fairgrounds as he tries to get the Klatt Enterprises No. 6 entry one step closer to the series’ owner’s championship.

The Hockett/McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway will mark Bacon’s first winged 360-ci Sprint Car outing of the year that has been filled with Non-Wing, Midget, Silver Crown and winged 410-ci competition.

“We were fast with the 360 the few times we ran it last year, we had a win and had good speed both nights at the Short Track Nationals,” Bacon says. “We have a comfort level going back to it when we got the opportunity.

Bacon looks forward to a change of scenery this weekend in Missouri.

“It’s nice to change it up every once in a while,” Bacon explains. “It’s a good chance to race with different people that you don’t race with a lot and see a lot of fans that we don’t get to see very often and just get back to a place that I used to race at quite a bit. And it’s a race in Jesse’s name, that makes it extremely special to me.”

While the Hockett/McMillin Memorial carries the luxury of no points implications, the ante is upped with Sunday’s USAC Silver Crown card at Springfield.

“We have been qualifying well which helps and we’ve made some adjustments from Du Quoin to improve during the race,” Bacon says. “At the worst I feel like we have been a top-five car each time and have a good chance to win on any night. Klatt Enterprises is leading owner points, so it’s important to put together a couple of strong finishes in these last two races.”

Bacon enters the weekend after a USAC Sprint Car double in which a sure top-five finish at Terre Haute was cut short by a cut tire and then a Hard Charger effort at Haubstadt.

Gridding Saturday’s feature then at the Terre Haute Action Track, Bacon worked his way up to fourth with ease and had more in his sights when a cut right rear tire brought an end to his streak of 21 consecutive top-ten finishes in USAC Sprint Car competition.

“We were fast all the way, we were up to fourth and could have had second with no problem if not the win,” Bacon explains. “Then we cut a tire and hit the wall going into one to end our night.”

Bacon and the Hoffman Racing / Mean Green No. 69 got off to a slow start at Haubstadt’s Tri-State Speedway on Sunday but finished the night out in strong form by rallying from 19th to eighth to earn Hard Charger efforts.”

“We weren’t fast early, then we got going in the feature and we were to seventh at one point,” Bacon says. “Then there was a red flag and we just couldn’t get going after that.”

With an idle weekend for the USAC Sprint Car ranks, Bacon is ready for a healthy dose of ASCS, WAR and USAC Silver Crown action this weekend.

Brady Bacon Racing is bolstered by the support of partners including Mean Green, Fatheadz Eyewear, Imperial Wagyu Beef, Gene Franckowiak, Drivewfx.com, Tel-Star Technologies, B&S Cattle, Lykins Oil, Elliott’s Custom Trailers, Triple X Race Co., Hoosier Tire, XYZ Machine, Factor4, Heath Clips Lawn Care, FK Indy, Engler Machine and Tool, FK Rod Ends, Keizer Wheels, Purple Heart Foundation, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, Smiley’s Racing Products, DMI, Walker Filters, ProGlide Coatings, Chalk Stixx, Wilwood Engineering, Lajoie Seats, Smith Precision Products, Allstar Performance, Simpson Racing Products, Driver Websites, Schroth Racing, Saldana Racing Products, KSE Racing Products, King Racing Products, Schoenfeld Headers.

2019 Quick Stats: 87 races, 8 wins, 34 top-fives, 49 top-tens.

Up Next: Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour (winged 360) and WAR (non-wing) double duty at Lucas Oil Speedway’s “Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial” in Wheatland, MO, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday; USAC Silver Crown at Springfield’s Illinois State Fairgrounds on Sunday.

Jake Wheeler Wins Race, Mike Wheeler Is Sprint Car Champion At Southern Oregon Speedway

By Don Martin II White City, Oregon...September 14...Jake Wheeler drove an impressive race to win the 25 lap Kendall Oil Winged Sprint Car Main Event Saturday night at Southern Oregon Speedway. This was the second win of the season for the 2016 champion aboard the Ron Osborne owned Sprinter. Despite losing the point lead coming into the night, Mike Wheeler used a second place finish to regain the lead and become the new champion.

Going into the night, Bailey Hibbard held a three point lead over Mike Wheeler and a four point advantage over previous feature winner Charlie Thompson. Wheeler and Thompson shared the first heat race, and it was Enrique Jaime picking up the win ahead of Wheeler. This gave Wheeler a one point lead over Hibbard, but Hibbard had the front row for the next heat race. After a false start, Hibbard made contact with one of the infield tractor tires and suffered front end damage, ending his heat race. This year's top rookie, Johnny Burke, won the race ahead of 2018 champion David Hibbard. The Top 3 heat race finishers redrew for their starting lineup in the six lap Scramble, and Mike Wheeler outran nephew Jake Wheeler to earn the pole for the feature race with his win.

The Wheeler's shared the front row for the Main Event, and it was Jake Wheeler leading from the get-go ahead of Mike Wheeler and David Hibbard. Forced to start last after making repairs, Bailey Hibbard worked his way very quickly into the sixth position and began battling Charlie Thompson for fifth. The yellow flag waved on lap 10 for a David Marble spun in Turn 2, but Jake Wheeler remained in command on the restart ahead of Mike Wheeler. Within a couple of laps, Jake Wheeler already held a straightaway advantage. An inside pass on the front stretch of the 20th lap gained Charlie Thompson fourth from Johnny Burke, but Thompson coasted to a stop in Turn 4 for a yellow flag on lap 22. Thompson's race was over, and another yellow flag flew for Jared Hood in Turn 1. Again, Jake Wheeler led Mike Wheeler on the restart as Camden Robustelli moved the TJ Winningham entry into the fourth position. Jake Wheeler cruised to victory, and Mike Wheeler solidified a championship season with his second place finish. David Hibbard settled for third, followed by Robustelli, Bailey Hibbard, Jaime, Anissa Curtice, Burke, Marble and Hood.

Pokorski Motorsports eyes strong end to 2019 season

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) September 17, 2019 –Following a 15th-place showing in Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Car competition on Saturday, Sept. 14, Paul Pokorski and the members of his Pokorski Motorsports team are looking forward to closing out the 2019 campaign on a high note with a Midwest Sprint Car Association doubleheader weekend at the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam, Wis. on Friday, Sept. 27 and The Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, Sept. 28.

Pokorski was among 28 PDTR 360 Sprint Car drivers signing in to do battle in the second-to-last race of the 2019 season at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, Sept. 14.

The 2014 Midwest Sprint Car Association Masters Series champion lined up third in the fourth PDTR 360 Sprint Car heat race and dropped back to fourth in the running order on the opening lap as Ben Schmidtslipped past.

On lap 3, Shane Wenninger worked around Pokorski to drop the blue No. 4 machine to fifth. Three laps later, Pokorski gained back one spot as he worked the low groove to move past Schmidt into fourth place, which is where he finished.

After failing to make the top-16 heat race passing point qualifiers for the A main, Pokorski lined up on the pole for the 12-lap B main. Ben Schmidt got the jump on the opening lap to take the lead, while Pokorski settled into second. The West Bend driver held the runner-up spot throughout the remaining laps to earn a spot in the evening’s 25-lap A main.

Pokorski rolled off from the 18th starting spot in the A main and hovered around 19th through the majority of the early portion of the event. After a red flag for a flip involving race leader Travis Arenz in turn four on lap 23, Pokorski restarted 17th.

Pokorski gained a few more spots when a caution flag was displayed on lap 24 when Justin Miller hit the turn three wall. The 27th-year driver restarted 15th and held the spot during a green-white-checkered flag finish to take 15th in the race, which was won by Adam Miller.

“The car was good in hot laps and got mysteriously tight in the heat race,” Pokorski said. “That hurt our finish. We made good changes for the B main and the car was pretty good. I thought the feature finish was disappointing given how well the B went, but starting 18th on a fast racetrack is hard. The MSA has a lot of good cars so it's always hard and starting back that far makes it harder for sure.”

The Pokorski Motorsports team will close out the 2019 season with a pair of MSA events during the weekend of Sept. 27-28. On Friday, Sept. 27, the team will compete in the first annual Fuzzy Fassbender Memorial at the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam. Wis. The event will also feature the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series, as well as A Modifieds and B Modifieds. Hot laps will begin at 6 p.m. followed by qualifying and racing at 7 p.m.

The 2019 campaign will conclude on Saturday, Sept. 28 at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. with an all-Sprint Car program dubbed the Wisconsin Sprint Car Championships featuring the MSA 360 Sprint Cars, IRA 410 Sprint Cars, Wisconsin Wingless Sprint Cars and IRA Lightning Sprint Cars. Hot laps will begin at 5 p.m. followed by qualifying and racing at 6 p.m.

“I'm looking forward to the two-night conclusion to theyear,” Pokorski said. “I've learned to love Dodge County and it will be nice to honor local racing hero and Hall of Famer Fuzzy Fassbender on that night. Then wrapping up the season with a big night of all Sprint Cars at Plymouth should be awesome. I can't believe 2019 is almost in the books.”

Championships on the line this weekend

When the PA Sprint Series and Laurel Highlands Sprint Series join forces for the IMCA/RaceSaver event this Saturday night at Bedford Speedway, the race to victory lane will take place alongside the run for the national IMCA/RaceSaver Championship.

The same holds true Sunday night at Hagerstown Speedway, when the Virginia Sprint Series will host the racing, with co-sanctioning by both PASS and LHSS.

Entrants for both nights will include national RaceSaver points leader Ken Duke Jr. of Selinsgrove and runner-up Scott Lutz of Jonestown. Going into the weekend, Duke leads Lutz by 12 points in the national standings, so there is ample opportunity for things to change. Also, these are the final 2019 national points races for both series, and drivers who wishing to pursue more points before the September 29 close for this season will have to venture to Western Pennsylvania, Delaware or North Carolina next weekend.

Duke also leads both the Pennsylvania state IMCA/RaceSaver points and those for PASS, while Lutz is second in Pennsylvania state points, first in Maryland points, and first in those for LHSS.

Zach Newlin of Millerstown, defending PASS champion, is fourth in national points, third in Pennsylvania, and second in PASS. He also is expected to race this weekend.

No Pennsylvania driver has ever been crowned national IMCA sprint champion.

Also heating up as the season nears its close is the race of IMCA’s national rookie-of-the-year, and there three of the top four contenders should be in competition this weekend. In RaceSaver(R) Bedford, Hagerstown races

Texan Ronald “Trey” Burke currently leads the national rookie points, but he is closely followed by Pennsylvanians Doug Dodson of Middletown, Dylan Proctor of Lock Haven and Jake Frye of Lewisberry. A strong weekend could thrust any of those three closer to the national rookie title.

(Note: Even though the IMCA/RaceSaver points race ends on September 29, a bonus points system will later add to each driver’s total based on strength of schedule and other factors.)

Of course, a healthy field of other PASS, LHSS and (at Hagerstown) VSS racers will contest the would-be champions at every turn. In particular, watch out for Drew Ritchey of Everett, who has won twice this year in LHSS races at Bedford, and red-hot rookie Garrett Bard of Wells Tannery, who has three wins in barely two months of PASS competition, as well as an LHSS win the last time the series came to Bedford.

Some PASS veterans have experience at Bedford when it ran under PASS sanction, prior to LHSS’s establishment. PASS Regional Director and car owner Rod Ort collected his first career victory as a driver in the first RaceSaver event run at Bedford in 2003.

In Hagerstown’s four previous RaceSaver events this year, drivers from each of the three co-sanctioning series have celebrated in victory lane.

The PASS/LHSS contest at Bedford is part of the second night of the Bedford Fall Fest races and also will include late model sportsman cars, pure stocks and 4-cylinders. Racing is scheduled to begin at 6:00 p.m., and adult general admission is $15.

At Hagerstown, PASS will be supporting Tony Stewart’s Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All-Star Circuit of Champions. Racing is set to start at 7:00 p.m., and tickets are $25 for adult general admission, or $20 for students, seniors and military.

Next weekend’s events also are the final races for PASS before the 8th Annual Keystone RaceSaver Challenge, the “Blue Collar Classic,” at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday, October 12. This race draws competitors from across the region and already has nearly 40 entrants, with only a handful of those being drivers who are not at least semi-regulars with PASS. The day’s racing also includes Mason-Dixon Limited Late Models, extreme stocks and 4-cylinder pure stocks.

Dover Aiming for Win No. 10 on Season and First Career at Lucas Oil Speedway This Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - SPRINGFIELD, Neb. (Sept. 17, 2019) - Jack Dover is heading to Missouri this weekend to tackle the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial.

Dover is slated to make his final three starts of the season driving for Rick and Chris Bowers during the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland this Thursday through Saturday.

"We always find a way to get in the A Main the final night during the event," Dover said. "The car owner looked through past results and there's only a handful of drivers who have made each A Feature the last few years and we're one of them so that's saying something."

Dover has recorded at least one top 10 each year he's competed in the event - he didn't race it in 2013 and 2015 - with a handful of fourth-place finishes marking his best result at the track.

"We learned a lot from the chassis dyno (a couple of weeks ago) that we can transfer to the car so that will help," he said. "We took my bars and shocks with us to Jackson earlier this month and we had some good runs. We'll take those notes and transfer them to Wheatland and I think we should have a pretty good result."

Dover enters the action fresh off his ninth feature victory of the season. He has won at least nine main events during 11 of the last 12 years.

The goal is to pick up his first career triumph at Lucas Oil Speedway, which would push his win total to double digits. Dover has scored at least 10 victories in a single season eight different times, including during six of the last seven years.

SEASON STATS -

34 races, 9 wins, 19 top fives, 25 top 10s, 30 top 15s, 32 top 20s

UP NEXT -

Thursday through Saturday at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo., for the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour

Price Looking to Rebound at Lucas Oil Speedway After Struggles at I-30 Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Sept. 17, 2019) - Last Saturday was a learning night for Robbie Price, who was unable to qualify for the feature during the 12th annual Ralph Henson Memorial at I-30 Speedway.

Price began the night by starting on the outside of the front row in a heat race. However, a sixth-place result relegated him to a B Main and an eighth-place finish in that race missed a transfer into the ASCS Mid-South Region and ASCS Sooner Region main event.

"I've always struggled at I-30 and I was trying to learn a few things and really just missed completely in the heat," he said. "I tried to get into a transfer spot before the rubber came in during the B Main. I was driving aggressively to get there and I got out of shape. It's just one of those things that happens."

Price is looking to rebound as he returns to Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour action when the series heads to Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo., this Thursday through Saturday for three nights of racing during the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial.

Highlighted by a $10,000-to-win Saturday night finale, the event also provides two full nights of preliminary action and serves as one of the biggest races of the season for the 360 sprint car division.

In a rookie season that has seen many ups and downs, it will be Price's first career visit to the oval known as 'The Diamond of Dirt Tracks.'

"It's a new place for me, but I'm optimistic heading into it," he said. "We've won some races and had some rough nights as well, but I think every time we hit the track we are learning. I'd like to put it into the show all three nights and I'm looking forward to the challenge."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 14 - I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark. - Heat race: 6 (2); B Main: 8 (7).

SEASON STATS -

46 races, 2 wins, 7 top fives, 16 top 10s, 25 top 15s, 31 top 20s

UP NEXT -

Thursday through Saturday at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo., for the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour

Masse Sets New Career Marks Despite Challenging Moments of Season

Inside Line Promotions - MAGRATH, Alberta, Canada (Sept. 17, 2019) - A season that began with promise and speed evolved into one wrought with challenges and adversity which Cody Masse and his racing team successfully battled.

"Unfortunately, we didn't have the results we hoped for this year," Masse said. "We started out with a lot of promise and had some things to be proud of. But then we faced a lot of adversity with various issues beyond our control. We lost our primary motor after nine races and we got caught up in several crashes, none of which were our own doing. About 40 percent of our races were rained out.

"Through all the adversity I felt our team responded really well. The season tried to make us give up several times, but we refused. I'm really proud of the effort of my crew, sponsors and other supporters who helped keep us going. I know that when things start going our way again, that attitude will be one of the reasons we'll be successful."

In spite of the numerous challenges, Masse and his team were able to set new career marks. A runner-up finish at Big Sky Speedway in Billings, Mont., in June eclipsed their previous highest feature finish of fourth. Their nine top-10 finishes nearly doubled their previous best of five.

"We got off to a solid start to the season with six top-10 finishes in a row, including our best night ever at a track when we won our heat race and finished second in the feature in Billings," he said. "We won another heat race after being unable to do that the last several years. We also had the fastest lap among a strong group of cars in Great Falls."

Following the successful start, the team began an uphill battle after losing their primary engine and resorting to their underpowered back-up power plant, which already had more than 30 nights of racing on it.

"We could've easily given up and called it a year," he said. "But we went back to what we knew and did the best with what we had. I was proud of our effort and what we were able to accomplish."

While Masse's career-best finish at Big Sky Speedway was a highlight of the season, one of his favorite memories occurred in late August at Electric City Speedway in Great Falls, Mont., when he was able to score a top-10 finish following an opening-lap crash.

"That night at Great Falls quickly went from a bad memory for me to one of my favorites of the year," he said. "Getting upside-down on the opening lap, everyone thrashing on the car, getting back in the race and finishing in the top 10 was pretty cool. I think that race kind of described our season in a nutshell."

While nothing is definite, Masse noted that he plans to race a similar schedule in 2020.

"It's difficult to make any plans at this time, since most of the tracks won't have their schedules out for another four to five months, but we'll probably have a schedule similar to this year's," he said. "We plan to spend the offseason getting our motor program back to where it needs to be."

Carrick Third at Macon Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA: Back in a Keith Kunz Midget in the state of Illinois, Tanner Carrick had a good run as he charged to seventh on Friday night before a 4th place run on Saturday night capped his weekend.

“Friday night we were really good from the back of the pack,” Tanner Carrick said. “Saturday I started on the pole, but restarts just were not kind to me. Still, great to get back in the top-5 to close our weekend out.”

Saturday night at Macon Speedway, Carrick would get the night started by flexing some serious muscle in his heat race. The Lincoln, CA pilot had his elbows up as he forged his way to the point and picked up the win.

Moving into the feature event, Carrick found his KKM No. 71K machine on the pole for the 30-lap contest. Slipping back to second when the race came to life, Carrick began chasing after Cannon McIntosh while also dealing with his teammate, Logan Seavey.

With Seavey able to slip underneath him, Carrick continued to hold down the final spot on the podium as the race clicked laps off in torrid fashion. Slipping back to fourth, Carrick would close his weekend in the fourth spot.

Friday night Carrick and the KKM team were also in action as they invaded Belle-Clair Speedway in Belleville, IL.

Lining up in the second row of his heat race, Carrick would falter and finish in the fifth position which put him deep in the feature event line up. Taking the green flag from the 15thstarting spot, Carrick would get going in the right direction in a hurry.

Maneuvering his way through traffic, Carrick would find himself inside the Top-10 and looking for more as the end of the race drew near.

Continuing to charge, Carrick would close Friday night out with a very strong run through the field to finish seventh.

“We have been so fast lately, and our car has been fun to drive,’ Carrick said. “Thanks to all the guys for all of their hard work on my car. “

Tanner Carrick and the Keith Kunz Motorsports team would like to thank Craftsman, CVC, TRD, Spike Chassis, Cemex, Arai, and Shell Shock for their support.

2019 BY THE NUMBERS- Starts-43, Wins-1, Top 5’s-9, Top 10’s-23

ON TAP: Carrick will return home this weekend to compete at Placerville Speedway on Friday and Saturday night during the Nor*Cal Posse Shootout.

Nienhiser Hard Charges With IRA

PETERSEN MEDIA: Going to work in both a 305ci and 360ci winged car over the weekend, Paul Nienhiser would pick up a seventh place finish on Friday night at Jacksonville Speedway before a hard charge on Saturday night with the IRA at Beaver Dam.

“Friday night Jacksonville was really hooked up and that makes it tricky for a 305ci car,” Nienhiser said. “We struggled and really couldn’t do much. Saturday night in my 360ci, we had a good night going but a pre race issue forced us to forfeit a front row starting spot and come from the tail.”

On a very sticky and fast Jacksonville Speedway on Friday night, Nienhiser lined the Wankel No. 5 entry up in the second row of his heat race where he would pick up a third place finish.

Lining up sixth in the feature event, Nienhiser simply couldn’t get his machine to make grip no matter what he did. Trying to go anywhere on the track, Nienhiser was stalled out and was unable to mount a charge as he finished seventh and snapped his winning streak at the track.

Changing directions on Saturday night, the Chapin, IL driver returned to his PNR No. 9x machine to battle the IRA at Beaver Dam Raceway as he shook his mount down for this week’s Hockett Memorial.

Timing the CAM2 Blue Blood Racing Oil/Mason Sound/Innovative Design entry in 12th fastest in time trials, Nienhiser would find himself on the front row of his heat race.

Needing to win to make the redraw, Nienhiser would do just that and find himself with the two pill, which placed him on the front row of the feature event.

Heading out for the feature event, a Flashlight was still attached to Nienhiser’ mount, and race control sent him to the work area for removal prior to the race going green.

Forced to tail to start the race, Nienhiser would have his work cut out for him. When the race came to life, Nienhiser almost immediately discovered a brake issue and ran nearly the entire race with no brakes.

Doing a great job from the tail, Nienhiser was able to work his way forward and cap his night with an 11th place finish.

“It was surely disappointing to have to go to the tail end of the field and give up a front row starting position,” Nienhiser said. “We had a good car, and I think from the front row we could have contended for the win.”

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.

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Races-42, Wins-12, Top 5’s-20, Top 10’s-24

ON TAP: Nienhiser is now geared up for the Hockett/McMillan Memorial with the ASCS National Tour, as well as the POWRi War Non-Wing Series Thursday-Saturday night at Lucas Oil Speedway.

Lucas Oil Speedway Spotlight: Kory Schudy looks for more Wheatland success at Hockett-McMillin Memorial

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE MEDIA CONTACT: Lyndal Scranton (Lscranton755@gmail.com) Driving for Jon Sawyer Racing, Kory Schudy has two wins and 10 top-five finishes this season on the POWRi WAR Sprint Series.

WHEATLAND, Missouri (September 17, 2019) - Kory Schudy rolls into the 9th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial looking to add to an already-successful first season on the POWRi WAR Sprint Series, which included a feature win back in May at the Open Wheel Showdown at Lucas Oil Speedway.

"That was big. It gave us confidence right out of the box and going back to Lucas to end the season," said Schudy, who hails from Springfield. "Hopefully, we can have another good run."

The Hockett-McMillin Memorial features the Lucas Oil ASCS Winged Sprint Cars and POWRi WAR Sprints in one of open-wheel's crown jewels. Full programs for the ASCS Winged Sprints are set for Thursday and Friday, paying $3,000 to win the features and helping set the field for Saturday's $10,000-to-win feature.

The WAR Sprints will be split with half running on Thursday and half on Friday. Drivers will be competing for points every time they hit the track to gather points for Saturday, when the feature will pay $3,077. The features on Thursday and Friday will pay $1,377 to win.

Schudy will be in the Thursday portion of the preliminaries, looking to set himself up for another chance to win at Lucas Oil Speedway in 2019. He said there are few more meaningful events in the open-wheel world than this one, which honors the late Hockett, a star in both the winged and non-winged sprint divisions when he lost his life in a shop accident in 2010. His cousin and crew chief, Daniel McMillin, was killed in an automobile accident in 2006.

"Those guys were as good as you can get," Schudy said of Hockett and McMillin. "Just having the opportunity to be in this race this year is big for me. If we could run good enough on our preliminary night to set us up for Saturday, just to have a chance to win it ... that would be the biggest race of my career."

Schudy, 33, is a second-generation open-wheel racer. His dad, Pat Schudy, still races Midgets on occasion. A large contingent of family and fans cheered his win at Wheatland earlier this year.

"It's kind of in our blood," Kory Schudy said of the appeal of this form of racing. "We grew up and became fans of it at an early age. You can't get away from it once you become a part of it.

"It's so exciting. You know that one wrong move usually doesn't end up very well for the race car. So it brings a different element to it, I think."

Schudy began racing micro-sprints as a teen "then I took a break through my 20s and got back into it when my dad started running Midgets again."

Driving for Jon Sawyer Racing, the 33-year-old Schudy finished up the points portion of the WAR schedule just 11 points behind Warsaw's Riley Kreisel. While he said it's agonizing to just miss earning a championship, Schudy called it a great year.

The partnership with Sawyer to run a full WAR Sprint schedule came about during last winter's Chili Bowl Nationals.

"He was looking for a driver and I was kind of looking to race more full time than on a hit-and-miss basis," Schudy said. "Timing was the key and it worked out from there. I ran for him four or five years in Midgets and this is the first year for me in the Sprint car."

In 15 WAR Sprint features, Schudy has two wins, 10 top-five finishes and 13 top 10s. It took a near-flawless season from Kreise to keep Schudy from the championship.

"We're happy with it," he said of the season, "though we're competitive and wanted to win (the championship). Overall, we've had a great season and we're looking forward to this weekend."

Outlaw Speedway to Host Fourth Annual Fall Nationals For 360 Sprint Cars Paying $5000 To Win

Contact: Paul Harkenrider

PST Media

607-237-6372|paul@patriotsprinttour.com

(Dundee, NY) The month of money will continue this weekend at Outlaw Speedway for the 4th annual Outlaw Fall Nationals. An event that continues to grow for 360 sprint car teams as they will battle for $5,000 to win and $400 just to qualify on Saturday, September 21.

If anyone recalls the inaugural Outlaw Fall Nationals back in 2016, it was a race for the ages between Chuck Hebing and Josh Weller with the Cobra taking the exciting win. Hebing would defend his title in 2017 by also winning the second addition of the event. Last season, it was Wantage, New Jerseys Davie Franek picking up the win and it was an emotional one as he paid tribute to the late Greg Hodnett who lost his life in a sprint car accident the week prior.

With the competition continuing to heat up with 360 Sprint Cars in the Northeast, expect the same to come this weekend. Ironically enough, two (Joe Trenca & Jonathan Preston) of the three winners in sprint car competition at Outlaw Speedway this season scored their first career victories at the track. Dylan Westbrook was the other winner and although it was not his first career win in 360 competition, it was his first career win at Outlaw Speedway.

Friday night will entice several teams to join in on the track activities as there will be 15 lap-winner take all dash for cash paying $500. On top of that, the top two from the dash will be guaranteed the front row to Saturdays A-Main event. The dash line up will be based on time.

Patriot Sprint Tour and Empire Super Sprint technical rules will be accepted this weekend. Saturdays format will be open draw for heats, passing points will then be tabulated to determine an eight car dash. That dash will determine rows two through five. Rows six through ten will line up from passing points, the remaining four spots will come through the B-Main.

A full purse structure and rules have been posted on Patriot Sprint Tour Social Media.

For more information regarding the rest of the 2019 season, please be sure to visit patriotsprinttour.com or by liking the Patriot Sprint Tour on facebook, following our twitter and Instagram @PatriotSprints.

 

Mallett Charges Forward for Ninth-Place Finish at I-30 Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Sept. 17, 2019) - Jordon Mallett advanced eight positions last Saturday to capture a top-10 result during the 12th annual Ralph Henson Memorial at I-30 Speedway.

The trip to the bullring, which was a combined ASCS regional race with the Mid-South and Sooner Regions, served as a homecoming for the Greenbrier, Ark., native.

"It wasn't the result we were looking for in heading home as we have a lot of fans in that area, but it was nice to run there," Mallett said. "To be able to be home and have sponsors, friends and family supporting us at the track, it was a highlight for me no matter what."

With a stacked field of 39 drivers in attendance, Mallett began the night by finishing where he started - third - in a heat race. He also participated in a six-lap 'Race of Champions' race as a result of being a past champion of the event (in 2014) and again finished where he started - second.

Mallett was forced to run the B Main and for the third time of the night he finished where he started - second. That secured the 17th starting spot in the main event.

In a race that only had two cautions in the first handful of laps, Mallett charged forward to pass eight cars and finish ninth. The top-10 result was his 13th of the season and served as a learning experience for the track's 32nd annual Short Track Nationals in early October.

"The track wasn't really the normal as I remembered there and we made the best of things all night," he said. "We didn't get passed by a car all night and we advanced in the feature so I'd say we had a pretty successful night."

Next up for Mallett will be the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial this Thursday through Saturday at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo. The three-day Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event pays $10,000 to win the finale.

"This is our first trip to this track and it's a great opportunity to see where we stack up and show how much we've learned this season," he said. "The goal is always to win and I know we are just as capable of winning as the next guy. But if we can get it in the show each night and make as many laps as possible it'll be a good weekend."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 14 - I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark. - Heat race: 3 (3); Race of Champions: 2 (2); B Main: 2 (2); Feature: 9 (17).

Hill Battles Challenges at Canadian Sprint Car Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - OHSWEKEN, Ontario, Canada (Sept. 17, 2019) - Mechanical woes and challenging track conditions led to a disappointing weekend for Alex Hill during the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals at Ohsweken Speedway.

"Things certainly didn't go our way either night," she said. "It was disappointing, especially since it's a race at our home track that we had looked forward to. But that's the way racing can be. You just have to put it behind you and move forward."

Friday night began with mechanical problems for Hill, plaguing the team the entire evening and allowing her little track time.

"We couldn't get heat in the motor because the quick line for the fuel line kept disconnecting," she said. "We got it going for hot laps, but I only got about one lap in before it disconnected again. We got it fixed for the heat race, but then we had problems with the fuel pump and decided to park it for the night."

Heavy rains following Friday night's program presented a challenging and unique racing surface for Hill on Saturday.

"The track was really different on Saturday," she said. "We went out later in qualifying, which I felt hurt us quite a bit."

A poor start in her heat race led to a seventh-place finish after starting fifth.

"I didn't get a good start," she said. "The guy in front of me didn't take off. Then I was pretty much stuck where I was. The bottom was the only line to run and it was hard to pass."

An 11th-place finish in the C Main ended her evening.

"We missed the setup a bit and dropped back a little bit," she said. "It kind of followed the way our whole weekend went."

Hill is looking forward to putting the weekend behind her and moving on to a major event on the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour schedule - the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo., this Thursday through Saturday.

"I enjoy racing at Lucas Oil Speedway," she said. "I wish we could race there more often. This is a big race with a lot of strong competition. We haven't been able to make the Saturday night A Main before so that will be our goal this year."

Saturday’s A-main for the 410 sprints will pay $1,000 to the 10th place finisher and $500 to start. One again the 305 sprints will compete for $1,000 to win with the Burmeister Trophy Dirt Trucks also battling for $1,000 to win.

In addition, all non-transfer 410 cars who take a competitive green flag will earn $150.

“We wanted to put a purse together for the weekend to thank all the teams for their support in our first season of running this historic track. We will wrap up the season with a lot of fun as well,” said Ryan Schiets, one of the directors of “The Track That Action Built.”

The Jim and Joanne Ford Classic honors the couple who rescued the historic track and re-opened it in 2000. Their children will pay $100 to the driver in each of the three divisions who advances the most spots from their original A-main starting position both nights.

Also on Saturday, Kear’s Speed Shop of Tiffin, Ohio, will celebrate their 50th anniversary in a huge way. The team at Kear’s has put together nearly $10,000 worth of products to be given out to the race teams.

The big purse is sure to bring out some of the area’s most talented sprint car drivers. Aliquippa, Pennsylvania’s Tim Shaffer is sure to be a favorite, having won the Jim and Joanne Ford Classic four times, including last year. He has made the A-main every year of the classic and has eight top five finishes in the event. Seven time Fremont track champion Byron Reed, a former classic winner, and three time track champion Craig Mintz, each have nine classic A-main starts with Mintz recording three top five finishes.

Including both nights of the Jim and Joanne Ford Classic, Reed, Shaffer and Mintz have made 18 of the possible 20 A-main features over the past 11 years (2016 was rained out).

And while there may be some “outsiders” coming to try to take the loot, Fremont Speedway’s weekly competitors are more than able to defend their home turf. DJ Foos has scored back-to-back wins at the track and has four victories in 2019. Track champion Buddy Kofoid has a pair of wins at Fremont in 2019 with Cap Henry scoring four victories and Stuart Brubaker with a win. Nate Dussel has three runner-up finishes at Fremont in 2019 and has only one feature finish outside the top nine in 2019.

The FAST 410 Sprint Car Series has plenty of talented drivers as well. Cole Duncan comes into the weekend leading the FAST points with five overall feature wins in 2019. Lee Jacobs, the track record holder at Fremont, is second in series points with one feature win while Tyler Gunn sits third in FAST points. TJ Michael sits sixth in FAST points with a feature win at Waynesfield in 2019.

Tickets for Friday’s event are $15 for adults; $13 for senior citizens; $10 for teens and kids 10 and under get in free. Pit passes will be $30. Saturday, general admission is $25; $23 for senior citizens; $20 for teens and kids ages 10 and under get in free. Pit passes will be $35.

Gates will open at 4 p.m. Friday with racing under way at 7:45 p.m. Gates will open at 4 p.m. Saturday with racing under way at 7 p.m.

Following the racing action both nights, there will be a band playing in the pit area. Also, on Saturday, the Fremont Speedway Queen and Lil Miss contest will take place in the Fremont Speedway Hall of Fame at 1 p.m. and event is open to the public. The track’s 2020 queen and little miss will be crowned.

Brian Brown Scores Top Five at Williams Grove and Podium at Selinsgrove

Inside Line Promotions - SELINSGROVE, Pa. (Sept. 17, 2019) - Brian Brown posted a pair of top-five finishes last weekend to give him 20 top fives this season.

The best result of the weekend was a podium finish on Saturday during the Jim Nace Memorial 37th annual National Open presented by Red Robin at Selinsgrove Speedway. It was Brown's 14th podium of the season.

Sept. 13 - Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa. - Qualifying: 8; Heat race: 2 (2); Feature: 4 (7).

"We hot lapped really well, but we didn't qualify as well as we would hope," Brown said. "We went there with a 100 percent different package than we've ever had there to see if we could be better. We were better in some senses, but we were worse in qualifying. We were pretty good in the heat and in the feature we started seventh. We got a really good start and was up to third or fourth at one point when a yellow came out. They put us back a couple of spots for the restart and we had to work to get back to fourth. I feel like we're heading in the right direction."

Sept. 14 - Selinsgrove Speedway in Selinsgrove, Pa. - Qualifying: 4; Heat race: 1 (3); Feature: 3 (3).

"They had some rain during the day which made the track pretty fast," Brown said. "We qualified well and were able to win the heat. We knew the pill draw for the feature would be pretty crucial. We drew the No. 3 and that put us on the second row. We fell in line right away. We knew 40 laps at that kind of speed, you can't run 40 laps wide open. We had to bide our time and see where we were at during the mid-race break. Unfortunately, we were too free. Even sometimes when you're trying to maintain your tires you can be wearing them because of the way your car is handling. Our tires were pretty blistered. We took back off and rode there. When we got to traffic it felt like we could have an opportunity, but that was only with a few laps to go. I took a couple of shots at Freddie (Rahmer), but couldn't clear him and we ended third.

"It was a solid weekend. We've been out here quite a bit and have been in the top five a majority of the nights. When you get seconds, thirds and fourths the wins will come."

UP NEXT - Thursday at BAPS Motor Speedway in York Haven, Pa.; Friday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa.; Saturday at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa.; and Sunday at Hagerstown Speedway in Hagerstown, Md., with the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions

"BAPS Motor Speedway is a place we've had some success as well as Williams Grove," Brown said. "Lincoln is a wild card. We've been decent there and have a couple of top 10s. Hagerstown is a place I'm looking forward to that should be in our wheelhouse. If we can come away with four top fives it'd be a successful weekend."

SEASON STATS -

54 races, 5 wins, 20 top fives, 30 top 10s, 36 top 15s, 41 top 20s

Dominic Scelzi Rebounds for Top 10 During World of Outlaws Race at Calistoga

Inside Line Promotions - CALISTOGA, Calif. (Sept. 17, 2019) - Dominic Scelzi picked up his fourth top 10 of the season during World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series competition last Saturday at Calistoga Speedway.

The strong run capped the Outlaws final swing through the West Coast and it wrapped up a busy three-race week in which Scelzi improved his result each night.

Last week's action began on Wednesday at Placerville Speedway in Placerville, Calif., during the 49er Gold Rush Classic presented by Riebes NAPA Auto Parts. He qualified 20th quickest, placed ninth in a heat race and rallied for a fourth-place result in the Last Chance Showdown before ending the night early in the A Main.

"I felt like we were just off all day," he said. "We changed a lot of stuff and just really struggled all night long. We were really tight and I ended up pulling off in the feature."

Friday was a step forward during the NOS Energy Drink Showdown at Stockton at Stockton Dirt Track in Stockton, Calif., where Scelzi timed in ninth quickest before he finished fifth in a heat race and 20th in the main event.

"We timed in pretty well, but didn't get a very good start on the bottom in the heat race," he said. "We spun our tires and fell to fifth right away. In the main event we were really, really tight. I couldn't turn the race car and was fighting it so I pulled off."

The best night came on Saturday as Calistoga Speedway hosted the Wine Country Outlaw Showdown. Scelzi qualified second quickest out of the 22 competitors. A third-place result in a heat race lined him up on the outside of the fourth row for the feature.

"We got the jump on the start of the heat and I ran around the bottom on the first corner," he said. "The previous heat had been won down there, but the top was better and I fell to third in turn two. I wish I would have slid to the top and got going. We were good enough to win.

"In the main event we started eighth. We were good, but it was very hard to pass. We ran eighth most of the race before getting seventh toward the end. It felt really good. The California swing was a disappointment for me because I had a lot of high hopes. We didn't reach our goals. To be able to run seventh, which I believe we were better than seventh, I'm happy with it after the way the last two weeks have gone."

Scelzi's seventh-place result marked his 32nd top 10 of the season and fourth during World of Outlaws competition.

He will venture east with the series to compete this Friday and Saturday at Dodge City Raceway Park in Dodge City, Kan., during the Outlaw Boot Hill Showdown. It will be his debut at the track.

"It looks like a fun track," he said. "It's not a big half mile or a quarter-mile bullring. It should be a fun challenge. Plus, I think we're on the right track with our race car."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 11 - Placerville Speedway in Placerville, Calif. - Qualifying: 20; Heat race: 9 (7); B Main: 4 (6); Feature: 24 (22).

Sept. 13 - Stockton Dirt Track in Stockton, Calif. - Qualifying: 9; Heat race: 5 (3); Feature: 20 (15).

Kraig Kinser Caps California Swing by Earning Hard Charger Award at Calistoga

Inside Line Promotions - CALISTOGA, Calif. (Sept. 17, 2019) - Kraig Kinser improved his feature finish during each of the three World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series races in California last week.

It began on a high note last Wednesday at Placerville Speedway in Placerville, where Kinser qualified fourth quickest, placed second in a heat race and ended third in the dash to line up on the inside of the second row for the 49er Gold Rush Classic presented by Riebes NAPA Auto Parts main event.

"We were off a little bit and got caught up in some bad spots to lose chunks of positions in a short time," he said. "We were good early, but just faded. It wasn't what we wanted, especially starting up front like we did."

Kinser was credited with an 18th-place finish.

He returned to action on Friday at Stockton Dirt Track in Stockton during the NOS Energy Drink Showdown at Stockton, qualifying eighth quickest and placing fourth in a heat race before ending the night 13th in the A Main.

"We were a little inconsistent," he said. "Once you get a halfway decent qualifying run you want to take advantage of it and not go backwards in a heat. We lost a spot there and then in the feature we were struggling on restarts."

Kinser got stronger as Saturday night played out at Calistoga Speedway, which hosted the Wine Country Outlaw Showdown. He timed in 12th quickest and finished fifth in a heat race to line up 15th for the main event.

"I caught a lot of guys on the restarts and was able to pass a few cars," he said. "My car was good enough to hang on the bottom that first lap after a restart. You had to move up once you got spread out and had to keep the momentum up. I tried to get what I could get on restarts and get back in line."

Kinser maneuvered to a ninth-place result, which was his 22nd top 10 of the season. It also earned the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars.

He now heads to Dodge City Raceway Park in Dodge City, Kan., for the Outlaw Boot Hill Showdown this Friday and Saturday. Kinser won a World of Outlaws race at the oval in 2012.

"It's always nice getting to a place where you've had success," he said. "We've seen that track quite a few different ways. We'll see how the track it is when we get there, but we're looking forward to a good weekend."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 11 - Placerville Speedway in Placerville, Calif. - Qualifying: 4; Heat race: 2 (2); Dash: 3 (3); Feature: 18 (3).

Placerville Speedway hosts the Nor-Cal Posse Shootout this Friday and Saturday

This year’s event is headlined by non-sanctioned Winged 360 Sprint Cars each night, with the BCRA Midget Lites also in action as the companion class. The Nor-Cal Posse Shootout is the only two-night Winged 360 Sprint Car event of the season at Placerville Speedway and has featured no shortage of excitement over the last two seasons.

“The Nor-Cal Posse Shootout is an event that we continue to try and build each season,” commented Placerville Speedway Promoter Scott Russell. “I know that Kami and I would like to see it become one of the marquee events in Northern California that fans have to put down on their calendar. We’ve seen some great racing all season long and should be in for a can’t miss weekend at the shootout. The year is slowly winding down, so we hope to see everyone out here for two exciting nights of competition.”

Friday’s opener will hand out a Sprint Car Challenge Tour style purse of $2,500-to-win/ $400-to-start the main event, while Saturday’s finale dishes out a stout $7,000-to-win/ $400-to-start the feature.

The “Shark” is always a favorite when he signs in at the Placerville Speedway but will face stiff competition in the form of recently crowned track champion Andy Forsberg. The now seven-time Placerville titlist has put together a fantastic campaign with seven overall wins in 2019 on the familiar red clay.

Recent World of Outlaws winner at Placerville Speedway Shane Golobic of Fremont will be another challenger looking to bring home the big money this weekend. The two-time Trophy Cup champ has a pair of weekly victories this season in addition to his big triumph with the “Greatest Show on Dirt.”

Matt Westfall gets one for the thumb at Gas City Speedway on September 13

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

FOREST, Ohio (September 16, 2019) – Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports have been successful across the map in 2019, and that statistic only broadened during the recent weekend, as the Forest, Ohio-based race team earned their fifth victory of the season, this time making the trip to victory lane at Gas City Speedway in Gas City, Indiana, on Friday, September 13.

A thrilling victory, to say the least, Westfall’s march to the top of the podium commenced from the inside of row three. Taking command for the first time on lap 20, Westfall’s tenure at the front of the field was eventually disturbed by a pair of late-race cautions, the second occurring on the final lap which ultimately set-up a one-lap dash to the finish. Suffice it to say, the ‘Bumblebee Express’ held strong.

Although not a victory, Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports’ visit to Lawrenceburg Speedway on Saturday, September 14, also resulted in a productive outcome, first winning their respective heat race before bouncing forward from sixth to fourth during the evening’s main event.

“What a weekend. I couldn’t be more proud of this team. To say we have five wins across five different tracks; that just goes to show how versatile we are as a program,” Ray Marshall said, owner of the Ray Marshall Motorsports/Buckeye Machine Fabricators, Inc./Crazy Lady Restaurant and Bar/Hempy Water/DPI Ink/No. 33M sprint car. “I’m confident in saying this won’t be our last win of the year. I’m sure Matt and the guys have a few more up their sleeves.”

“That was a lot of fun,” Westfall said of his victory at Gas City, who also owns wins at Atomic Speedway, Fremont Speedway, Limaland Motorsports Park, and Kokomo Speedway in 2019. “I can’t say enough about this team. We have a special connection and we’ve been fortunate enough to carry a lot of success this season. I’m sure that will continue.”

Upcoming plans for Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports remain uncertain. Fans are encouraged to stay alert on social media for continuing updates.

“We felt pretty good on Saturday, which is something new because we’ve had some iffy results there all season,” Michael explained, who owns one victory in 2019; a $5,000 FAST Series triumph at Waynesfield Raceway Park on August 2. “It just takes laps. I think we have a package that works and I’m anxious to get back there and try again this weekend. Hats off to this entire team, though. They never give up and that certainly showed this weekend.”

Dietrich scores top-tens during visits to Williams Grove and Selinsgrove; All Star tripleheader ahead

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (September 16, 2019) – Although winless in the Keystone State during his recent weekend of competition, a situation seldom occurring for the Gettysburg native, ‘Double-D’ Danny Dietrich found success in other criteria and scored back-to-back top-ten finishes during action at Williams Grove Speedway and Selinsgrove Speedway, kicking things off with a fifth place mount during Williams Grove’s Dirt Classic Qualifier on Friday, September 13.

Although falling short of matching his Williams Grove Speedway outcome, Dietrich capped his two-race weekend with an eighth place finish at Selinsgrove Speedway’s Jim Nace Memorial/National Open on Saturday, September 14. With each of his weekend results considered, Dietrich now owns a jaw-dropping 55 top-ten finishes in 2019, 14 of which are victories – four more than his 2018 total.

“It was just one of those weekends. It was a consistent few days for us, but we are not interested in being consistent. There are a lot of big money races on the line and we want to be in contention to win them,” 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 Cars/Self Made/No. 48 sprint car. “The track was really fast at Selinsgrove. It made it pretty tough to pass, but I was trying my best to make things happen.”

Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing will continue their 2019 season with a trio of All Star Circuit of Champions starts, this time following the Tony Stewart-owned organization to Williams Grove Speedway, Lincoln Speedway, and Hagerstown Speedway on Friday through Sunday, September 20-22, respectively. Certainly the highlight of the weekend, Saturday’s Dirt Classic at Lincoln Speedway will award a $20,000 top prize. A surefire favorite to win all three, Dietrich will enter the weekend as a two-time All Star winner in 2019, as well as a combined eight-time winner at Williams Grove and Lincoln.

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

MYERSTOWN, Pa.

Certainly the highlight of his weekend in the Golden State, Marks’ 12th place outcome at Stockton Dirt Track was the result of a charge from the inside of row nine.

“We didn’t have the night we wanted at Placerville, but we were able to rebound a little bit and get some rhythm going at Stockton and Calistoga,” Brent Marks explained, driver of the Brent Marks Racing/M&M Painting & Construction/BAPS Auto Paint & Supply/Eagle Hotel/No. 19 sprint car. “It was a fun West Coast Swing, but I think we are all ready to head back towards home.”

Brent Marks and Brent Marks Racing will continue their third, full year on the road with the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series with a visit to Dodge City Raceway Park in Dodge City, Kansas, on Friday and Saturday, September 20 & 21.

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (September 16, 2019) - The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series concluded their second and final West Coast Swing of the 2019 season on Saturday evening, September 14, and despite the long hours, high miles and stout competition, ten-time and defending World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion, as well as the current Series point leader, Donny Schatz, concluded his last weekend in California with a trio of top-ten performances, highlighting all three with a runner-up finish at Stockton Dirt Track in Stockton, California, on Friday, September 13. Schatz kicked-off his evening at Stockton with the fastest time during qualifying time trials, all before advancing four spots to bump from sixth to second during the evening’s A-Main.

Although just missing a second consecutive podium appearance, Schatz put together another convincing run and finished fourth during his visit to Calistoga Speedway in Calistoga, California, on Saturday, September 14. Starting seventh on the grid, Schatz advanced three positions during the Wine Country Outlaw Showdown, and despite his title-rival Brad Sweet finishing second, Schatz left the West Coast with a ten point advantage in the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series championship standings.

Technically, a tenth place outing at Placerville Speedway on Wednesday, September 11, activated Schatz’ final week in the Golden State.

“We still have a long way to go,” Donny Schatz expressed, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Toco Warranty/Ford Performance/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/Absolute Automation & Security/No. 15 sprint car. “It was good to leave California with the point lead, but there are a lot of races left on the schedule.

Dates: Thursday-Saturday, September 12th-14th
Events: ‘Speedweek: Reloaded’ & Dean Knittel Memorial
Series: Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1

Tony Stewart A-Main Finish (Start):
Thursday: 8th (10th)
Tim Shaffer A-Main Finishes (Start):
Friday: 3rd (6th)
Saturday: 10th (12th)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (September 16, 2019) - Three nights at Atomic Speedway in Chillicothe, Ohio, eventually resulted in three consecutive top-ten performances for the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Rush Truck Centers/Toco Warranty/Ford Performance/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/Absolute Automation & Security/No. 14 sprint car team, and although Columbus, Indiana’s Tony Stewart was only present for one of the three top-ten outcomes, the ‘Steel City Outlaw’ Tim Shaffer filled-in for the boss well and helped achieve the team’s best performance of the weekend; a charge sixth to third during ‘The Night Before The Knittel’ on Friday, September 13.

Only participating in Thursday’s ‘Speedweek: Reloaded’ program due to NASCAR commitments in Las Vegas, Smoke opened the weekend with an eighth place finish on September 12, advancing two positions after starting tenth on the $5,000-to-win starting grid.

Although his podium run on Friday highlighted the entire weekend for Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing, Tim Shaffer concluded the three-day, All Star Circuit of Champions campaign by finishing tenth during the $12,554-to-win Dean Knittel Memorial finale on Saturday, September 14. Shaffer earned his way into the 30-lap, five-figure blockbuster by finishing third during his respective heat race. There were 39 cars in attendance.

“I can’t thank Tim Shaffer enough for stepping forward and helping us get through the weekend,” Tony Stewart explained, who owns nine sprint car victories in 2019. “Tim is a talented guy. If anything, I should probably allow him to drive more often so I can learn from him. All-in-all, a great weekend for the team. Hats off to the Knittel family for building such a great event at Atomic Speedway.”

Upcoming plans for Tony Stewart remain uncertain. Fans should stay alert on social media for continuing updates.

Miller Family Motorsports

PLYMOUTH, WIS.] September 16, 2019; The Miller Family Motorsports teams' were back in action this past Saturday evening at the Plymouth Dirt Track (PDTR).

Both brothers took the track for their respective heat-races and Adam finished second in his and Justin finished 3rd in his; by collecting top three finishes, both teams were locked-in to the A-main for the evening. Adams' team made minor changes to the #24m and he was set to start 3rd in the A-main. The #15m team also made minor changes to the Maxim chassis and Justin was set to start 9th in the main event action.

All 22 PDTR sprinters were called to staging and were set to push off for the nights' 25-lap A-main. The drivers pulled their belts tight and put their cars into gear and awaited for their send off for A-main action. As the field was shown the one-to-go sign, both brothers were set to make a charge to the front. The green flag dropped and Adam was quick to capture the second spot and had his sights set on the leader; Justin was moving through the field quickly and was battling for 6th when contact was made with another car and it sent the #15m into the backstretch wall hard. Miller rode the wall and finally landed uninjured, however the car was heavily damaged and he would be done for the night.

After red-flag conditions halted the program towards the end of the race, Adam was now in the lead! Adam patiently waited for the re-start which would be green-white-checkered. As soon as the green flagged dropped, Adam had a capitalizing re-start that would secure him with his FIRST A-MAIN VICTORY OF HIS CAREER! Adam was greeted in victory lane by Justin who was able to watch from the infield and join in the victory lane celebration! Adam had the #24m dialed in from the start of the night and finished the night on-top!

Justin and the team will assess the damage done to the #15m this week and they are hopeful that they will be able to return to action September 27th at the Horsepower Half-Mile located at the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam, WI.

Sides Motorsports Highlights Week With Top-Five Run at Placerville Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - CALISTOGA, Calif. (Sept. 16, 2019) - Sides Motorsports highlighted its final week of the season on the West Coast with a top-five finish last Wednesday during the 49er Gold Rush Classic presented by Riebes NAPA Auto Parts.

Tim Kaeding piloted a team car to the quickest time in qualifying before he won a heat race. Unfortunately, he pulled the highest number - six - during the dash redraw and he finished in that position. Kaeding made up ground in the A Main, battling for a spot on the podium before ending fourth.

It marked the team's seventh top five of the season and it was the best result of the three-race week with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series for the two-car team.

Kaeding placed 16th on Friday at Stockton Dirt Track in Stockton, Calif., during the NOS Energy Drink Showdown at Stockton and he ended 13th on Saturday at Calistoga Speedway during the Wine Country Outlaw Showdown. Those were his final two scheduled starts of the year with the team.

"I think it worked out great this year," team owner Jason Sides said. "He had some really good runs. We've got good equipment and the motors run really good. I feel like if he was here longer we'd wrack up some wins."

Sides improved his feature finish during all three nights, placing 23 rd at Placerville Speedway, 21st at Stockton Dirt Track and 17th at Calistoga Speedway. While Calistoga Speedway featured the best result, Sides had his top night going on Friday at Stockton Dirt Track.

He qualified sixth quickest before winning a heat race. A fifth-place finish in the dash lined him up on the inside of the third row for the A Main. Unfortunately, Sides got the front end knocked out of his race car early in the feature and the time expired in the work area before he could return to the track.

"On one of the restarts I was on the outside," he said. "I tried running the top and it didn't work for me. I got to bouncing real bad and then got ran over. It took the front end out and jabbed it in the mud. It took longer to get the mud out than change the front end so we didn't get to restart. Tim had a similar problem as a rut threw him off the track. I felt like both cars were going to be in the top five and it got shot to hell."

Next up is a trip to Dodge City Raceway Park in Dodge City, Kan., for the Outlaw Boot Hill Showdown this Friday and Saturday. Sides won World of Outlaws races at the track in 2011 and 2015.

"It's a beautiful facility with a great promoter," he said. "I love the race track. It's a fun track and the whole facility is nice. It's always great to go there."

Starks Shows Speed During Central Pennsylvania Doubleheader Before Misfortune Strikes

Inside Line Promotions - SELINSGROVE, Pa. (Sept. 16, 2019) - Misfortune unraveled a pair of promising nights for Trey Starks last weekend.

The Gobrecht Motorsports driver put himself in position of starting inside the top 10 during main event action on Friday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., and on Saturday at Selinsgrove Speedway, but a mechanical failure resulted in a DNF each night.

"A mechanical problem ended both nights while we were having great runs," he said. "Hopefully we can turn things around and have some good runs again this weekend. We've had really fast cars lately."

Starks qualified second quickest before he advanced from fourth to second place on Friday at Williams Grove Speedway. The feature redraw lined him up on the outside of the third row, but the night ended on Lap 21 while he was running inside the top five. He was credited with a 19th-place result.

The weekend wrapped up on Saturday during the Jim Nace Memorial 37 th annual National Open presented by Red Robin at Selinsgrove Speedway. Starks timed in eighth quickest in qualifying. A third-place run in the heat race gave him the ninth starting position for the main event. However, he exited the track on Lap 8.

"We qualified decent, but unfortunately in the heat we had a wing come apart on us," he said. "We kind of had issues all night. We salvaged a third-place finish in the heat to transfer into the feature. The car was lightning fast in the feature. It seems like when the track is a little heavier I always seem to find a clear path there. We passed probably four cars on the start. We were running fifth when we broke only a few laps into the race. We were super fast and the car was great."

Next up for the team will be a four-race weekend with shows on Thursday at BAPS Motor Speedway in York Haven, Pa.; on Friday at Williams Grove Speedway; on Saturday at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa.; and Sunday at Hagerstown Speedway in Hagerstown, Md. The final three races are with the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions.

Kerry Madsen Captures Podium at Williams Grove and Top Five at Selinsgrove

Inside Line Promotions - SELINSGROVE, Pa. (Sept. 16, 2019) - Kerry Madsen recorded back-to-back top-five finishes last weekend in Central Pennsylvania.

The KI Crossbows backed driver scored a third-place outing on Friday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg before capping the weekend with a fourth-place run on Saturday at Selinsgrove Speedway during the Jim Nace Memorial 37th annual National Open presented by Red Robin.

"We qualified well both nights and we were on the bumper of the car in front of us for 25 laps on Friday and 40 laps on Saturday," he said. "We were in contention. We were really quick both nights every time we hit the track. But both nights it rained a little so you knew it'd be on the quicker side."

Big Game Motorsports was fast throughout the weekend, beginning on Friday with the third quickest qualifying time at Williams Grove Speedway. Madsen then advanced from fourth to third place in a heat race before he finished third in the A Main.

Saturday marked Madsen's first start at Selinsgrove Speedway since August 2006, but it didn't show. He established a new track record while setting quick time during qualifying.

"It's a confidence builder with the team," he said. "For whatever reason earlier in the year qualifying wasn't my strong suit. We made a good lap and kept the car straight and we ended with a good time. The way the formats are these days you need to be starting up front to have a shot at these races."

A run from fourth to third in a heat race again put Madsen in striking position during the main event as he lined up fourth. He maintained a top five throughout the race before finishing fourth, which was his 13 th top five of the season.

"Every time we'd get into traffic and the field would tighten up we'd have a yellow," he said. "I was close a couple of times for third, but just couldn't make the pass."

Madsen is slated to compete with the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions this Friday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa.; Saturday at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa.; and Sunday at Hagerstown Speedway in Hagerstown, Md.

"I'm looking forward to the weekend," he said. "We want to keep working on our race car package. It feels like we're gelling."

Giovanni Scelzi Earns Victory During First Career Pavement Late Model Race

Inside Line Promotions - IRWINDALE, Calif. (Sept. 16, 2019) - It didn't take long for Giovanni Scelzi to begin to make a name for himself in the pavement world of racing.

Scelzi earned a victory last Saturday during his first career pavement race. He led approximately the final 15 laps to score the triumph in the spec late model division at Irwindale Speedway, where he piloted a car owned by Tim Huddleston.

"I thought it went really well," Scelzi said. "It took me a while to get comfortable and to find the edge. I pretty much threw everything I knew away and started fresh. It was different, but I really enjoyed it. Having a spotter was different. It was cool to have a new challenge."

Scelzi said he made approximately 150 laps during practice sessions on Thursday and Friday prior to Saturday's event. The night began with Scelzi qualifying fourth quickest.

"We'd been seventh quickest in both test sessions and couldn't break through to get in the top five," he said. "In qualifying I ripped two good laps off. It held on for quick time a while, but there they line up qualifying with the fastest drivers going last so we got beat by the last three cars. I was happy to be closer to the front than we were in practice."

A 10-car inversion lined him up on the inside of the eighth row for the 40-lap main event.

"On the first corner I got passed on the inside and fell to 10th or 11th," he said. "We got a decent green flag run in and got to fifth. I worked the bottom mostly, but I was able to maneuver around the track as I needed. I got the leader on Lap 25 and led the last 15 laps.

"On pavement you're at the edge where it's fast and then you cross it and you spin out. With dirt you're always sliding with the right rear stuck out. It took me a while to find that edge and then we started moving forward."

While Scelzi is now 1-for-1 in pavement competition, the victory was his eighth of the season as he has seven winged sprint car triumphs on dirt. He's been victorious in Australia along with his home state of California, North Carolina, Iowa and Indiana.

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 14 - Irwindale Speedway in Irwindale, Calif. - Qualifying: 4; Feature: 1 (7).

Madsen Charges Into Top-5 at Stockton Dirt Track

PETERSEN MEDIA- During the final visit of the season in California over the last week, Ian Madsen would have quite the eventful go but still managed to pick up Top-5 on Friday night in Stockton, CA.

“We had a bit of tough luck over the last week,” Ian Madsen said. “Some of it was self inflicted, and some wasn’t but the guys worked extremely hard and we made the best of some tough situations.”

Following a heat race incident on Wednesday night at Placerville Speedway, Madsen would be forced to go into the night’s ‘B’ Main. Winning the ‘B’ on that night, Madsen would do a great job of moving forward on the tight bullring. When the dust settled on the Wednesday night event, Madsen picked up an 11th place finish.

Friday night the scene shifted to Stockton Dirt Track. With 22 cars on hand, Madsen timed the Logan Contractors Supply Inc./Aspen Aire/Royal Flooring backed No. 18 entry in 10th quickest before finishing fourth in his heat race after a near disaster at the start.

Lining up 10th in the feature event, Madsen would take a liking to the bottom groove. Slowly working his way forward, Madsen would continue to pick up positions. Taking advantage of a couple of late restarts, the St. Marys, NSW driver would work into the fifth position where he would go on to finish.

Saturday night brought on the team’s final start of the season in California as they pulled into the famed Calistoga Speedway. Getting the night off to a great start, Madsen would time in third fastest before racing to a heat race win.

By way of the heat win, Madsen moved into the Dash where his draw luck would continue as he found himself with the six pill. Finishing sixth in the Dash, Madsen would grid the field from the third row to start the 25-lap affair.

Madsen would find himself on the short end of the stick on a couple of restarts with guys in front of him getting out of shape and forcing him to check up. Slipping back a few positions, he would go on to take the checkered flag with an 11th place finish.

“We had speed our entire trip, just didn’t really get any breaks,” Madsen noted. “Was hoping to get our guys another win in California before we left, but we came up a little short.”

Ian and his KCP Racing team would like to thank Logan Contractors Supply Inc., Aspen Aire, Royal Flooring, Bobcat, Kline Electric, Ted’s Body Shop, Team Excavating, Greenland Homes, American Express, TammyHeckart.com, Quality Traffic Control, BergenKDV, P1 Race Wear, and BK Racing Titanium for their support this season.

Andy Gregg 14th at Placerville Speedway Leading Into This Weekend’s Nor*Cal Posse Shootout

PETERSEN MEDIA: Making his first start of the year with BrownEagle Racing at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night, Andy Gregg would have a bit of a tough night as he finished 14th in the feature event.

“I thought we had a pretty good car considering it was our first time together at Placerville Speedway, but I just let the team down,” Andy Gregg said. “Thanks to everyone for their hard work, I feel bad for not being able to get the job done.”

With 34 cars packed into the Placerville Speedway for the track’s regular season finale, and the final night to log laps before this weekend’s Nor*Cal Posse Shootout, Gregg timed in 16th fastest in qualifying time trials.

From the front row of his heat race, Gregg would fall back to second when the race came to life and eventually would finish in the third position, which proved good enough to lock him into the 25-lap feature event.

Taking the green flag from the 15th starting position, Gregg just wasn’t able to get going over the course of the race. With a couple of grooves offered up after some pre race track work, Gregg would search around but simply couldn’t get going.

When the dust settled on the final regular season race of the year, Gregg came home with a 14th place finish.

“I am upset with myself, but am that much more motivated to do a better job this weekend,” Gregg said. “Can’t thank the BrownEagle guys enough for this opportunity, and am looking forward to our next race together.”

Andy would like to thank GUTS, Capitol ACE Hardware, Crane Inspection Agency, Sierra Ice, CTL Forest Management, Nail It Roofing, ARP Enterprises, Ervin Sales, Triple X, Wilwood, FK Shocks, FK Rod Ends, K&N, King Racing Products, BR Motorsports, Amerikote, Pony Express Service, Eagle Grit, and MF Inc. for their support in 2019.

Steven Tiner Picks Up Top-10 During Placerville Speedway’s Regular Season Finale with C&M Motorsports

PETERSEN MEDIA- Saturday night at Placerville Speedway, Steven Tiner returned to the seat of the C&M Motorsports No. 7c entry and picked up another Top-10 finish with the team as he came home in ninth.

“I made a couple too many mistakes and it cost us big time,” Steven Tiner said. “I can’t thank Cody and Mandi enough for continuing to let me drive their car, and hopefully I can redeem myself this weekend. I feel pretty bad for letting them down.”

Tiner’s night got off to a good start as he timed the Moorefield Construction, Inc./PT Shocks/Swartz Diesel/Alturas Tires backed No. 7c machine in seventh fastest in time trials.

Scheduled to line up in the second row of his heat race, a false start would put the Elverta, CA driver on the front row of the race and in prime position to earn a berth in the redraw.

Mashing the throttle when the green flag was displayed, Tiner would get the early jump on the slicked off surface. Leading all eight laps, Tiner would grab the win and move into the redraw where the six pill placed him in the third row to start the 25-lapper.

When the race came to life, Tiner would work on the cushion. Relentless running the top, Tiner would continue to fight inside the Top-5, until the lone caution of the night flew on the 18th lap.

When the race resumed, Tiner would look to make up some ground on the cushion and it would back fire as he would get over the edge and fall back a few positions. Gathering back up, Tiner would end his night with a ninth place finish.

“It was just my fault,” Tiner said. “Thanks to Cody and MF and everyone for giving me a good car. Hoping I can give Cody and Mandi a couple of good finishes this weekend during the Shootout.”

The C&M Motorsports team would like to thank Moorefield Construction, Inc., PT Shocks, Swartz Diesel, Alturas Tires, and all of their product sponsors for their continued support.

ON TAP: The C&M Motorsports team is now slated to compete in Friday and Saturday’s Nor*Cal Posse Shootout at Placerville Speedway with Steven Tiner.

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-26, Wins-1, Top 5’s-13, Top 10’s-22.

Blake Carrick 7th at Placerville Speedway With Nor*Cal Posse Shootout On Tap

PETERSEN MEDIA: Racing his way to a seventh place finish on Saturday night at Placerville Speedway, young Blake Carrick is eager to make a return trip to the speedway this weekend for two nights of action during the Nor*Cal Posse Shootout.

“We were pretty fast on Saturday night, and it was nice to get the guys another Top-10 finish,” Blake Carrick said.

Timing the CVC/Cemex/Interstate Oil backed No. 38B machine in 15th quickest in qualifying time trials, Carrick would look to capitalize on the prime heat race starting position, and earn a spot in the redraw.

Getting called for hitting the throttle too early, Carrick would get moved to the second row of the heat before finishing third. Finishing third, Carrick would transfer into the feature event where he would have his work cut out for himself coming from the 14th starting position on a very slick racing surface.

Following some track prep work before the feature event, the surface would remain slick, but multiple grooves were offered up, and this would allow Carrick to work his way through he field.

Amidst a very long green flag run that saw the race click off 18 circuits in seemingly no time at all, Carrick would claw and scratch his way forward as he got into the Top-10 and went looking for more.

Using the Lap-18 restart to his advantage, the youngster from Lincoln, CA would pick up a few more positions as he worked into the seventh position where he would go on to close out his night.

“It felt pretty good to come from the back against a pretty tough field of cars,” Carrick added. “Thanks to my guys for all of their hard work. Hopefully we can keep this week this weekend during the Two-Day show.”

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

ON TAP: Blake Carrick will be right back in action this Friday and Saturday night at Placerville Speedway during the Nor*Cal Posse Shootout.

Sanders 6th at Placerville Speedway Regular Season Finale

PETERSEN MEDIA- Saturday night during Placerville Speedway’s regular season finale, Justin Sanders and the Dale Miller Motorsports team charged from 12th to finish sixth in the feature event as the team now turns their attention to this weekend’s Nor*Cal Posse Shootout back at the speedway.

“We keep chasing our tail a little bit, and Saturday it felt like we just were not very good during a long green flag run, but we were pretty good on the short run,” Sanders said. “We will do some homework this weekend and see if we can get better for this weekend, but still a strong night to come from 12th to finish sixth.”

Amidst the 34 cars checked in to do battle at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night, Sanders kicked the night off by timing the Thompson’s Buick-GMC/Thompson’s Jeep-Ram/Dale Miller Septic, Inc. entry in 11th quickest in qualifying time trials.

Needing to win his heat race to earn a spot in the redraw, the Aromas, CA driver’s second place effort would still move him into the feature event though he would find himself in the 12th starting position for the 25 lap feature event.

On the freshly manicured surface, Sanders would get off to a nice start as the race came to life. As the green continued to stay out Sanders would work his way through the Top-10 and found himself up in the seventh position when the lone yellow was displayed on the 18th lap.

The race’s lone restart would see Sanders pick up another position as he worked into sixth, where he would go onto finish on this night.

“Big thanks to Dale and Tara Miller for continuing to allow to drive for them,” Sanders said. “Definitely looking forward to two nights at Placerville this Friday and Saturday night to see what we can do.”

The Dale Miller Motorsports team would like to thank Thompson’s Buick-GMC, Thompson’s Jeep-Ram, Dale Miller Septic, Inc., North County Plastering, Anrak Corporation, Yuba-Sutter Aviation, Frank’s Body Shop, Wion’s Powder Coating, Walker Performance Filtration, Factory Kahne Shocks, Smith Titanium, FK Rod Ends, Triple X Race Co., King Racing Products, A.R.T.

Andy Forsberg Wins Both the Battle and the War; Claims 2019 Placerville Speedway Track Championship

PETERSEN MEDIA- Andy Forsberg put an exclamation point on the 2019 point season at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night. Heading into the night with a mere 12 point lead in the season long championship hunt, Forsberg will be dominant all night long as he earned quick time honors and won the 25-lap feature event to claim his 7th career driving title at the speedway he as called home for so many years.

“Coming into the night chasing the title, you tell yourself to mind your manners and focus on the big picture,” Forsberg said. “My guys gave me too good of a car and I had to go for it. The year we had with some issues and torn up equipment, it feels pretty cool to get this win and this title for the F&F Racing guys.”

With a robust 34 cars swarming the pit area on Saturday night, Forsberg would pick up 5 bonus points early as he earned quick time honors aboard the Econo Lube n Tune and Brakes/Geico Local Office/PitStopUSA backed No. x1 machine.

In byfar the wildest heat race of the night that saw a couple of incidents, Forsberg would keep his nose clean, avoid some harm and pick up a second place finish moving into the feature event.

By way of Jimmy Wall’s three pill, AF would grid the field from the third position in the final feature event of the point season at Placerville Speedway. When things came to life, it was Jodie Robinson getting the early jump as Forsberg moved into second.

In a fast paced feature event, Forsberg would keep the youngster in his sights, and on the 18th lap while battling in traffic, would pull in front to take the lead but the yellow flew and negated his pass.

Forsberg would not be denied on this night however, as the ensuring restart saw him ride the thick Placerville Speedway cushion to the point, and he never looked back. Cruising to the win, Forsberg won both the battle and the war as his F&F Racing team celebrated on the front stretch in grand style.

“Big thanks to these guys for continuing to work so hard on this car week in and week out,” Forsberg said. “Great to win the race and the title, and hopefully we can come out this week and win the Nor*Cal Posse Shootout.”

F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg would like to thank Econo Lube-n-Tune and Brakes, Geico Local Office, PitStopUSA, Lucas Oil, Pacific Highway Rentals, Autism Awareness, FVP, and CRV Carbon Solutions for their support in 2019.

WRAPPING UP THE WEST: Stewart and CJB Finish Out Trio of Events Boot Hill Showdown keeps Outlaws busy as they move east

CARLISLE, PA. - September 16, 2019 - Shane Stewart and the CJB team are looking forward to heading back east after almost a month of being in the Midwest and along the West Coast.

Stewart and the team raced at Placerville (Calif.) Speedway on Wednesday, September 11th. The #5 car timed in 10th, finished 4th in the heat race and 13th in the feature.

Friday night, September 13th, the team took on the Stockton (Calif.) Dirt Track, where they timed in 20th, finished 7th in their heat race and 19th in the feature.

An event at Calistoga (Calif.) Speedway was contested the following night with Stewart timing in 8th, finishing 6th in his heat race and 20th in the feature.

"Just a tough, tough weekend," said Stewart, pilot of the #5 Killer Instinct Crossbows , Weikert's Livestock, Ecynbro Trucking, Nyce, Crete and Landis Block and Concrete, C&S Lawn & Landscape machine. "We just have had some rotten luck and so forth on this west coast swing and it has been a killer. Really want to thank my guys for never giving up. It's easy to get down when you have a stretch like this but they haven't."

The long march over the Continental divide begins as the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Cars move east to close out their season. A two day stop in Southwestern Kansas at Dodge City Raceway Park is next up on Friday, September 20th, and Saturday, September 21st.

RAIN WASHES OUT "TOPLESS NATIONALS" FINALE AT GENESEE ON SUNDAY; JEREMY WEAVER CROWNED "EMPIRE STATE CLASSIC" CHAMPION FOR SWEENEY RUSH SPRINTS
September 15, 2019
(By Mike Leone)

(Batavia, NY)...Intermittent rain showers throughout Sunday afternoon and with more expected through the evening, forced promoter Jim Johnson to reluctantly cancel night two of the "Topless Nationals" at Genesee Speedway. The two-day event included the Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Sprint Car Series powered by Pace Performance for the second straight year and was part of the three-night "Empire State Classic" with Ransomville Speedway on Friday night at Genesee on Saturday night. RUSH Sprint teams can send in for a refund of their pit passes to Genesee Speedway, c/o of Jim Johnson, 2591 Batavia-Oakfield Town Road, Batavia, NY 14125.

On the strength of two runner-up finishes and signing into competition on Sunday before the rain out, Jeremy Weaver earned the $300 "Empire State Classic" Championship. Thanks to CNC Specialties, Intense Fab & Design, and Pace Performance, the top five in points earned point fund monies this year. Weaver came up just shy to Brian Woodhall on Friday night at Ransomville then charged from the sixth starting spot to second on Saturday night at Genesee. Weaver ran out of time to make any effort at running down feature winner, Chad Ruhlman, who remains perfect in the three "Topless Nationals" events at Genesee in 2018 and 2019.

Weaver has really came on of late in his first season of RUSH Sprint Car racing. The 18-year-old Stoneboro, Pa. racer competed for four full seasons in the RUSH Sportsman Modified division running his family-owned #35W. Weaver finished in the top 10 of the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Weekly and Touring Series points for three of the four years including a fifth in 2016 Tour points. Weaver was the 2017 "Futures Cup" Champion.

After some early season starts in the Sportsman Modified division this year, Weaver moved over to the RUSH Sprint Car division full-time driving for longtime Modified and Sprint Car owner Ted Hull. The former go-kart racer coupled with the knowledge of Hull seems to be a good fit as Weaver has turned in four runner-up finishes this year including three of the last four races in the #41! Weaver sits fourth in the Bonnell's Rod Shop Weekly Series Championship standings.

Woodhall earned $200 for finishing second in points thanks to his win on Friday night in the first ever RUSH Sprint Car race at Ransomville, and then went 12th to ninth on Saturday night at Genesee. Zach Morrow and Brandon Blackshear tied for third in points and will each receive $125. Arnie Kent was fifth for $75.

"We have to thank Ransomville and Genesee Speedways for allowing us to be part of their two-day weekend events," stated RUSH Director Vicki Emig. "Our RUSH Sprints are a perfect fit for the Topless Nationals and we were really excited Ransomville wanted to join up with Genesee to expand the Empire State Classic to three nights this year. Thanks to the 17 racers that made the long tow to compete despite threatening weather two of the three nights. It's been a challenging year weather wise for our Sprints losing 13 of the 29 shows scheduled to date to Mother Nature. And we also have to thank CNC, Intense, and Pace for allowing us to expand the points fund to five positions this year."

FINAL "Empire State Classic" Points: 1. JEREMY WEAVER (Hull 41) 266 2. Brian Woodhall (8B) 257 3. Zach Morrow (27) & Brandon Blackshear (10) 254 5. Arnie Kent (18) 251 6. Steve Pedley (21) 248 7. Dave Hawkins (27) 245 8. Matt Sherlock III (55) 243 9. Brian Hartzell (69) 240 10. Brad Blackshear (19) 236 11. Shawn Smith (36) 178 12. Tyler Powell (35) & Chad Ruhlman (87R) 170 14. Kevin Ruhlman (23) 166 15. Andy Feil (Eckart/Mahoney 9J) 156 16. Nolan Groves (25) 151 17. Brad Church (40) 84.

Up next for the RUSH Sprint Cars will be a doubleheader of Bonnell's Rod Shop Weekly Series action with this Friday night (September 20) at Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio followed by Saturday night at Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway in Imperial, Pa.

RUSH Racing Series is brought to you by Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC & Pace Performance along with the support of Hoosier Tire, Bilstein Shocks, Sunoco Race Fuels, Bazell Race Fuels, Insinger Performance, MSD Performance, Holley Performance Products, Hovis Auto & Truck Supply, FK Rod Ends, Wehrs Machine & Racing Products, Schoenfeld Headers, Jones Racing Products, TBM Brakes, Performance Bodies & Parts, Racing Electronics, Dirt Defender, Wrisco Industries, Frankland Racing Supply, Landrum Performance Spring, Ontime Body & Graphic, Trailer-Alarms.com, Bonnell's Rod Shop, Zarin Truck & Automotive, Sherwood Wheels, Alternative Power Sources, Precise Racing Products, Lincoln Electric, Velocita-USA, Classic Ink USA, CrateInsider.com, and Valley Fashions.

SPRINT CARS RETURN TO PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY SATURDAY FOR GLENN HOWARD CLASSIC!

(Perris, CA, September 15, 2019) Perris Auto Speedway will send the summer out with a bang this Saturday night, September 21st, with the 12th Annual Glenn Howard Memorial for the Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Cars. The PAS Senior & Young Gun Sprints will also be a part of the card and the dazzling Western Racing Association vintage cars will be on hand as well. Spectator gates will open at 5:00 P.M. with racing at 7:00. At intermission, all kids will be allowed onto the front straightaway to meet and collect candy from all the drivers.

Saturday’s race honors the late Glenn Howard, who was part of the Southern California racing scene for more than 50 years as a driver, car owner, official, racing business owner and innovator. In addition, he was instrumental in many driver’s careers on and off the track.

“This race is always huge for so many of our drivers,” promoter Don Kazarian said. “Glenn did so much not only for the sport, but also for the people in the sport. When you think about it, there was nothing he did not or could not do. I think the reason most drivers want to win it is the fact that he helped everybody. He wanted to make the sport better for everyone and that is exactly what he did for a very long time. Everyone misses him as he is one of those guys you just cannot replace. Even though he passed away 12-years ago, his impact is still felt in the sport today and it will be felt forever. It has been and always will be an honor to host The Glenn Howard Classic at The PAS.”

When Glenn passed away, his family stayed involved in the sport as his son Steve continued to run the family business, SoCal Performance. However, since his passing, Glenn’s wife Pat, Steve and his other son Gary have also passed away. Gary’s passing came just a few months ago.

“We really honor the entire family now,” Kazarian said. “His wife Pat was a beautiful lady with a heart of gold. His sons Steve and Gary were good sprint car drivers. Both were very fast and fearless. They were the perfect picture of old school sprint car drivers and they both won main events in the hay day of the original CRA.”

Thus far, 2019 has been a very competitive season for the USAC/CRA Series at The PAS. Six of the group’s first 16 races have been at the track and those races have provided five-different winners. Only Richard Vander Weerd, who was born in Upland, raised in Chino and who now lives in Visalia, has been a repeat winner at the famous Riverside County half-mile clay oval this year. Besides Vander Weerd’s two wins, Garden Grove’s Brody Roa, Hunter Schuerenberg of Sikeston, Missouri, perennial series champion Damion Gardner of Concord and Anaheim’s Jake Swanson have one win each.

The PAS Senior and Young Gun Sprints will conclude their 2019 season on Saturday night. Seeking his second straight Senior Sprint championship, former Speedway Motorcycle racer and Wheel2Wheel Raceway promoter John Aden, who resides in Apple Valley, has a comfortable 35-point lead over Santa Fe Springs racer Ed Schwarz going into the race. Dan Taylor, a native of Reily, Ohio, is third in the standings. Ramona’s Amanda Roberson already has the Young Gun championship sewed up.

Tickets are $25.00 for adults. Seniors 65 and over get in for $20.00. For active military with proper id and their spouse or date, it is $5.00 each. Teens 13-18 with their school id and kids 6-12 get in for $5.00. Children 5 and under are free. Parking on the fairgrounds is $8.00.

Advance tickets for all Perris Auto Speedway events are available 24-hours a day online at https://bit.ly/2Aa50Lj or by calling 1-800-595-4849. If you do not wish to buy tickets in advance for any race, there will be plenty of tickets for everyone at the ticket window on race night.

Forte, Campos, J. Whisler, Schmidt, McDonald, And E. Ashley Score Friday The 13th Wins At CGS

 By Ben Deatherage

 Cottage Grove, Oregon- Cottage Grove Speedway hosted the first of two nights of their championship weekend on Friday, September 13th. The pits were jammed packed with six classes on the card. Divisions in action included the Todd’s Auto Body Sprints, Mohawk Metal IMCA Modifieds, Late Models, IMCA Sport Mods, Street Stocks, and Hornets.

In the Todd’s Auto Body Sprints, Kyle Barraza seized the initiative right off the bat and took over the top spot. The Roseburg racer held onto the position until the fourth circuit. Junction City veteran Shane Forte got to the front and held onto the lead for the rest of distance. However, Shane was challenged on a numerous amount of occasions but managed to hold onto to the point. It marked the first in 2019 that Forte has won at “The Grove.”

Kyler Barraza was second over Albany teenager Brody Sim. Winston’s Kyle Alberding came across the wire in fourth with Steven Snawder, of Roseburg, rounding up the top five, in fifth.

The Mohawk Metal IMCA Modifieds had a thrilling main event. Dave Duste Jr., from Central Point, officially led the opening lap. However, he pulled into the pit area under caution due to an issue. That handed over the position to Steven Sturdevant. Sturdevant paced the field for much of the feature. The Springfield chauffeur would get passed on lap twenty-four by John Campos. Campos, of Keizer, held on the rest of the distance to win his first victory of the season at CGS.

Steven Sturdevant was a respectable runner-up with Creswell’s Gus Cooper getting third Cottage Grove native Curtis Towns was scored fourth while fifth place went to Coquille youngster Ryan Baker.

Springfield’s Ryan Ronning took control of the Late Model main in the early goings. He held down the position until lap five when Jimmy Whisler got to the front. The Otis racer held on the rest of the distance to park his mount in victory lane for the first occasion this season.

Albany veteran Craig Hanson got second with Brian Smith, of Sweet Home in the Jerry Casey owned entry, was third. Thomas Hunziker, from Bend, ended the evening in fourth while behind him, in fifth, would be Ryan Ronning.

In IMCA Sport Mod action, K.C. Scott showed the way in the first two laps. Scott, of Springfield, lost the lead on lap three shortly after a restart to fellow Springfield native Daniel Ray. Ray held on for much of the distance but was overtaken late on lap twenty by David Schmidt. Schmidt paid his fourth trip to victory lane this year in the Sport Mod ranks.

Daniel Ray finished second with Buddy McHargue, of Winston, grabbing third. Central Point’s Jorddon Braaten ended the race fourth while in fifth was Jordan Henry, from Roseburg.

In the Street Stock main event David Schmidt, pulling double duty, was in front for the majority of the race. David led the opening eleven laps before Kelly McDonald got around him on lap twelve. McDonald, of Cottage Grove and racing for Tom and Joan Langan, paced the field the balance of the distance to score his fifth win of 2019 at Cottage Grove. David Schmidt was second followed by Keizer teenager Anthony Prather, in third.

In Hornet competition, Ricky Ashley, from Thurston, led the first lap. Ashley, running for car owner Randy Kuhl, would get passed by his younger brother Eric on lap two. Eric, from Jasper and also in a Randy Kuhl owned mount, stayed in front of the rest of the field to capture his fourth win of the season at CGS.

Eugene’s Brad Moffett ended the night second while Jason Loucks, also from Eugene, made it to third. Dexter driver Barry Cannon put in a fourth-place effort with Ricky Ashley ended fifth.

Cottage Grove Speedway will host their final race of the 2019 season on Saturday, September 14th. All of the same six classes will be on the card.

Tickets are $13.00 for Adults, Seniors/Juniors/Military $10.00, Youths (6-12) $5.00, and Children (5 & Under) are FREE.

38-Event 2020 Sprint Car Bandits and Texas Sprint Series Calendar & Schedules Released!

Garland, TX (09/13/19) by DarinShort.com. With yesterday’s announcement of the DFW-based 360C.I. Sprint Car Bandits® (SCB) series and RaceSaver IMCA Texas Sprint Series (TSS) synergistic alliance, over three dozen series events have now been booked for the 2020 racing season…and all 38 have been booked on separate dates from each other. Meaning, race fans in the DFW and surrounding areas do not have to pick or choose one track or another, like in the past, when they want to watch a TSS or SCB series event!

As mentioned in yesterday’s announcement, there are no planned changes to either series’ rules or procedures with this new collaboration – as we are focusing on scheduling, advertising and marketing for both series in order provide a larger combined footprint of publicity to attract more fans to each racing venue.

A very limited number of events in each series are remaining. If you are an area track promoter or owner that would like to book dates, please email Darin at dssm93@MSN.com ASAP with your preferred event dates (and series selection) along with your contact information and we’ll get back in touch immediately to confirm those dates or available alternative. Each series is limiting the travel distance to about 150 miles of the DFW Metroplex. We will provide updated schedules if/when they are adjusted.

In 2019, the Sprint Car Bandits debuted a ‘Summer Break’ so teams could take advantage of popular national level sprint car events or have a family vacation…all while avoiding the extreme Texas summer heat potential. The SCB Summer Break ended up being highly successful, so in 2020 both the TSS and SCB will have a formal Summer Break, which can be viewed at the schedules below.

Here’s the schedules at this moment in time, and they are also available in a monthly calendar format, at the following link in PDF format: www.SprintCarBandits.com then click the top link on the home page.

Sprint Car Bandits and Texas Sprint Series Create Synergistic Alliance for 2020 Racing Season

Garland, TX (09/12/19) by DarinShort.com. Officials of the DFW-based Sprint Car Bandits® (SCB) series and Texas Sprint Series (TSS) are pleased to announce they have formed a synergistic alliance for the 2020 racing season – and beyond. For those unfamiliar, the SCB is a 360C.I. Sprint Car series and the TSS is a RaceSaver IMCA Sprint Car group.

There is some crossover with the drivers that choose to race in both series, but that is not the focus of this alliance – growing track fan attendance is.

This collaborative effort will allow each series to book events at area tracks in a manner that will allow them a much higher level of fan retention, as the goal is to have one series, or the other, racing on one night only. Little, if any, rules changes in each respective series are anticipated by this new alliance.

Timing for this collaboration has been set into motion with the recent reopening of Boyd Raceway, with Richard Snider at the helm – Richard also operates the Texas Sprint Series.

Snider comments: “With Boyd Raceway reopening, it requires my full-time attention, and the Texas Sprint Series has such a great group of racers. The reality is sinking in that I can’t handle both without one affecting the other. “

Snider continues: “That being said, I’ve been a big fan of the Sprint Car Bandits series and have been to several of their events the past four seasons. The fan excitement they create with the Fan Fests and quality of racing is electrifying. Plus, they understand the economics of sprint car racing on each side of the fence – and to the track operators as well. So, I cannot think of a better arrangement than for the ‘Bandits to handle the day-to-day operations, such as creating an intertwined schedule and event marketing for the Texas Sprint Series.”

“We plan to host several events at Boyd Raceway for both the SCB and TSS in 2020, and I’m really excited about the future of both groups – and the health and sustainability of sprint car racing – in the Metroplex and surrounding areas. In this day and age we need as much cooperation between series and tracks as possible, and this is a giant leap in the right direction.” Snider concludes.

Darin Short (Sprint Car Bandits co-founder) comments: “Booking events at area tracks has always been such an arduous and complex task, and it can take months of work and planning to create an effective schedule for the upcoming racing season. With this new collaboration, it will take one significant variable out of the formula, as now we will know what nights are available – and which ones aren’t – so we don’t double-book events on top of each other unknowingly. We want to help to maximize fan turnout at all these events. And fans not having to choose one sprint race or the other is a good step in the right direction to meeting that goal. We fully plan to have a combined schedule that doesn’t have both series racing on the same night during the entire season, which will be a revolutionary accomplishment for Sprint Car racing in this region.”

Short continues: “Many tracks don’t release their schedules at the same time, so you can be left hanging wondering if the event dates you have booked will stick once they release theirs. Now we’ll know, as we’ll be booking the events and the individual track schedules are no longer an issue, as we’ll know when both series’ will be racing well in advance of the full track schedules are released.”

Will Eggimann, Principal with the SCB comments: “There are so many positive scenarios with this alliance that make sense for teams, fans, marketing partners and promoters – and that’s been our ultimate goal all along with the SCB.”

Eggimann continues: “We will also expand the online visibility of the TSS, which in turn will help with added fan-awareness and track attendance.”

A limited number of events in each series will be booked in 2020. If you are an area track promoter or owner that would like to book dates, please email Darin at dssm93@MSN.com ASAP with your preferred event dates (and series selection) along with your contact information and we’ll get back in touch immediately to confirm those dates or available alternative dates – as area tracks are gobbling up race dates already. Both series’ are limiting the travel distance to about 150 miles of the DFW Metroplex.

Businesses interested in Marketing Partnership programs for the 2020 season (for both the TSS and SCB) can email SprintCarBandits@Outlook.com and they will get back to you right away.

As stated earlier, there are no significant rules or procedure changes being planned for either series. The next rounds of press releases will focus on details such as schedules, off-season happenings (such as the Smiley’s Racing Products Texas Expo), registration; etc.

Be watching for the next round of series news on our traditional marketing channels, such as www.SprintCarBandits.com and on Facebook @SprintCarBandits or by keywords Texas Sprint Series. The TSS will also have a new online home being built during the off-season.

THANK YOU to all the teams, fans, marketing partners, series workers, track workers, series tracks and vendors for their support of both series’ in 2019 – and we’re looking forward to a highly coordinated 2020 racing season with the Sprint Car Bandits series and Texas Sprint Series! In the meantime, the season continues for each series, with the next TSS event being held this Saturday, September 14th at Grayson County Speedway, September 21st at Kennedale Speedway Park; then September 28th & October 12th for the SCB at 82 Speedway.

USAC Sprint Car Double for Bacon this Weekend after Valiant BC39 Effort

Lonnie Wheatley, WINCHESTER, Ind. (September 13, 2019) – With a third USAC Amsoil National Sprint Car Championship well within his sights, Brady Bacon tries to extend his string of 21 consecutive top-ten finishes in series competition with a pair of events this weekend.

This weekend’s action aboard the Hoffman Racing / Mean Green No. 69 Sprint Car begins with the 20th Jim Hurtubise Classic atop the storied ½-mile Terre Haute Action Track clay oval on Friday before moving on to Tri-State Speedway for the $10,000-to-win “Haubstadt Hustler” on Saturday night.

“We won this race at Terre Haute last year and we’ve been getting closer and better each time out at Haubstadt, so we have a chance to have a really good weekend,” Bacon explained.

“The Macho Man” enters the weekend sitting third in USAC National Sprint Car points.

Bacon nearly captured his second BC39 USAC National Midget feature win in a row last week aboard the FMR No. 76e at The Dirt Track at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

After racing from seventh to win his Wednesday night heat race to rank second among the 90 entries, Bacon climbed from sixth to fourth in Thursday night’s qualifier to secure the tenth starting position for the feature.

“They snookered us a little bit with the track, it dried out faster than we were prepared for,” Bacon says. “We were able to gain a little bit, at least enough to get into the feature.”

Working forward from tenth, Bacon ultimately took the lead 29 laps into the 39-lapper.

“We were working the bottom pretty well and made it up to fourth,” Bacon explains. “Then we inherited the lead when Kyle (Larson) and Zeb (Wise) got together.”

A red flag soon after proved to be all that could prevent Bacon from capturing a second consecutive BC39 triumph.

“Under that red, the track dried out some more,” Bacon explains. “There were a lot of marbles in the middle and I just didn’t have the grip.”

After surrendering the point with seven laps to go, Bacon made a last bid on the top side only to jump the cushion and turn over.

“I felt like I had to change it up to have a chance to win the race,” Bacon says. “I did what I though I needed to do and it just didn’t work out this time. We had a really good car and were right there in the mix for it again, the wins will come when that’s the case.”

With four USAC National Sprint Car wins among his eight overall wins on the season, Bacon will look to add another notch or two to the win column with this weekend’s pair of events in the Hoosier State.

Brady Bacon Racing is bolstered by the support of partners including Mean Green, Fatheadz Eyewear, Imperial Wagyu Beef, Gene Franckowiak, Drivewfx.com, Tel-Star Technologies, B&S Cattle, Lykins Oil, Elliott’s Custom Trailers, Triple X Race Co., Hoosier Tire, XYZ Machine, Factor4, Heath Clips Lawn Care, FK Indy, Engler Machine and Tool, FK Rod Ends, Keizer Wheels, Purple Heart Foundation, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, Smiley’s Racing Products, DMI, Walker Filters, ProGlide Coatings, Chalk Stixx, Wilwood Engineering, Lajoie Seats, Smith Precision Products, Allstar Performance, Simpson Racing Products, Driver Websites, Schroth Racing, Saldana Racing Products, KSE Racing Products, King Racing Products, Schoenfeld Headers.

Cannon McIntosh Back in Illinois for another POWRi Midget Weekend

Lonnie Wheatley, BIXBY, Okla. (September 13, 2019) – Another weekend of Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League competition is on the docket for Cannon McIntosh and the Dave Mac Motorsports Toyota-TRD Spike No. 08 Midget team this weekend.

The 16-year-old from Bixby, OK, takes to Belle-Clair Speedway in Belleville, IL, on Friday before moving on to Macon Speedway on Saturday night.

“We have had some really good runs at Belleville and Macon is fun, we’re looking forward to this weekend and maybe getting our first POWRi National win,” McIntosh says.

McIntosh enters the weekend after racing into last week’s prestigious USAC National Midget “BC39” feature event and another pair of strong POWRi outings.

Last week began at The Dirt Track at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the young gun made his presence known by racing his way into the Thursday night feature event amongst the field of 90 entries.

“It was a cool event, it was fun to be able to be a part of it,” McIntosh explains. “Our goal was to make the feature. It was a Chili Bowl-caliber feature, so we were happy to make it in there.”

After racing his way into the main event, McIntosh worked forward until a late race incident resulted in an official finish of 18th.

“We were up to about 14th, then I decided to go up top and smoked a rut that I didn’t realize was there and got into the wall,” McIntosh recalls. “’We had a good car, we were happy with it.”

McIntosh and company shifted back to POWRi action at Jacksonville Speedway in Illinois on Friday nights and landed a sixth-place finish in the feature event after a runner-up heat race showing.

“The track was pretty rough, you really had to drive it in on the wall and there wasn’t a whole lot that you could do from there,” he explains.

Moving on to Canton, Illinois’ Spoon River Speedway, a failed oil filter o-ring filter in heat race action put McIntosh behind the eight ball from the outset.

He battled back in strong form though, rallying from the tail of the “B” Main to take the win and then climbing all the way up to 11th in the feature event to salvage a good finish on the night.

“I realized the oil pressure was getting low in the heat, I was lucky to kill it before we blew up,” McIntosh says. “We got that fixed and were good the rest of the night and made the most of it.”

McIntosh makes two more runs at a Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League triumph this weekend in Illinois.

Along with Toyota-TRD, other marketing partners making the 2019 Cannon McIntosh slate of events possible includes Sanders and Associates, Car and Fleet, Mobil 1, Speedway Engine Development, Best Graphics, Fieldhouse Gear, Precision Inspection, Panels by Smoke, Walker Performance, Sanders Wheels, American Discount Brake and Muffler, D&N Fabrication, Darling Ingredients, PJ’s and Hinds Family.

Up Next: POWRi National Midget League at Belle-Clair (Belleville, IL) on Friday and Macon (IL) Speedway on Saturday.

KOFOID SEEKING OPPORTUNITIES FOR 2020

INDIANAPOLIS, IN- September 13th, 2019- This season has been very successfulfor the 17-year-old Michael “Buddy” Kofoid. Buddy’s racing season started in New Zealand driving for car owner Daniel Anderson. While Doug Rutz turned the wrenches, they captured six feature wins including the New Zealand Grand Prix, the Gold Cup and isonly the third American to win the New Zealand national title.
Following his six week stint in New Zealand the California native relocated to Ohio to live with Mike and Stephanie Linder to spend the 2019 season racing in the Midwest driving for car owner Ed Neumeister in the ENR No.11N backed by Gill Construction and CK Plumbing. While rain hampered a third of the season, Buddy to date still managed to amass 40 races. Although falling just a few points short of the inaugural AFCS (Attica Fremont Championship Series)series championship he is the current Fremont Speedway point leader. So far Buddy has acquired four wins racing in the Midwest, his most notable win came with the ASCoC (All Star Circuit of Champions) during Speedweek at Wayne County Speedway. He finished 3rd in the ASCoC Speedweek points.

Buddy still has a handful of races in the Midwest to finish and then will return home in October to drive for Tarlton Motorsports in the famed black No.21 at the 26th Annual Trophy Cup with potentially a few races after to round out the 2019 season.

With nothing on the horizon for 2020, Kofoid is looking for opportunities to continue his goal of being a full time professional racecar driver. With 10 wins, 20 top 5’s, 29 top 10’s Buddy has had a ton of success.While the ENR No.11N was only a one-yeardeal, Buddy is grateful for the opportunity and hopes he can continue to travel and race full time.

Please contact Buddy with any opportunities at, BuddyKofoid@yahoo.com or on Facebook at Michael Buddy Kofoid Racing and on Twitter at @MichaelKofoid

“This was the same weekend I got the opportunity to driver for Josh Bates a year ago and it went really well,” Cox said. “Working with a new team again, I am confident we can have a great couple of nights and hopefully we can will this deal. The team has been fast this year, and won the SCCT race with Jodie Robinson in Merced, so I am excited to see how we can perform.”

Cox would like to thank Moxie Motorsports for the opportunity and wanted to give a special shout out to the team’s sponsors, Morrison Concrete, and Roseville Precision, Inc.

The Cox Racing team would like to thank Michael David Winery, Five Window Beer Company, MDW Sports, Cranked Naturals, PM Truck Repair, Justice Brothers, K&N, Konnected, A.R.T., Sacramento Theatrical Lighting, College Cyclery, Arai, Racing Optics, All American Powder Coating, VSR, Coos Bay Speedway, Swimming Pool Perfections, Tim’s Hot Rod Shop, Shell Shock, Moyle Race Engines, and Manzer Motorsports for their support in 2019!

Thompson Enters Championship Battle With Kendall Oil Winged Sprint Car Win At Southern Oregon Speedway

Don Martin II
White City, Oregon...September 7...Charlie Thompson won the 25 lap Kendall Oil Winged Sprint Car Main Event Saturday night at Southern Oregon Speedway. This was the first win of the season for the 2009 champion, and he collected $1,000 for his effort. With Mike Wheeler retiring from the race early and Bailey Hibbard finishing second, the standings were shaken up with just next week's finale to go. Hibbard now holds a three point lead over Wheeler with Thompson four points out in fourth.

Looking to make a move on the rookie point lead, Johnny Burke held off 2016 champion Jake Wheeler to win their eight lap heat race. Bailey Hibbard outran Thompson to pick up the second heat race victory. The Top 2 finishers in each heat race redrew for their starting positions in the six lap Scramble, and Thompson went on to pick up the victory in that race. While leading the way, Thompson set a new track record on the 3/10th mile clay oval of 10.991.

With the pole position, Thompson charged into the Main Event lead at the waving of the green flag. Bailey Hibbard also managed to get by Jake Wheeler for second. The first of only three slow downs in the race occurred when Enrique Jaime stalled on the back straight away for a lap six yellow flag. Thompson continued to lead Bailey Hibbard and Jake Wheeler on the restart. Mike Wheeler had been struggling with motor issues all evening, and he finally stalled on the front stretch for a lap 10 yellow flag to end his race. He would be credited with last, which ultimately cost him the point lead at the end of the evening. Thompson continued to lead Bailey Hibbard and Jake Wheeler on the restart. The leaders caught slower traffic, which enabled Hibbard to make a serious challenge on Thompson for the lead. Thompson made contact with the front wall exiting Turn 4 as they worked the 16th lap. With nowhere to go, David Marble made contact and flipped on the front straightaway for a red flag. Marble was not injured. Thompson still had the lead when the race was lined up and continued to hold command over Bailey Hibbard and Jake Wheeler on the restart. Thompson set a fast pace and brought it home to a well earned victory. Bailey Hibbard managed to grab the point lead with his season best second place finish. Jake Wheeler settled for third. Burke held fourth for most of the race before surrendering the position to an inside front stretch pass by David Hibbard on lap 19. David Hibbard finished fourth ahead of Burke, TJ Winningham, Aaron Miller and Jaime.

The Kendall Oil Winged Sprint Cars are part of this Saturday's Hays Oil Championship Night. Also competing will be the IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sport Modifieds and Southern Oregon Dwarf Cars. For further information, go to www.southernoregonspeedway.com.

Reutzel Takes All Star Points Lead into Atomic Triple after Largest Score of Career!

Lonnie Wheatley, CLUTE, Texas (September 12, 2019) – Saturday night’s Tuscarora 50 turned into a dream run for Aaron Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team.

Reutzel charged into the lead at the outset of the second half of the 50-lapper and never looked back en route to a $52,000 triumph, his second of the weekend after a Thursday night Bedford Speedway victory and took command of the All Star Circuit Champions points lead in the process.

“When I passed Lance (Dewease), I just decided to go as hard as I possibly could and hope for no cautions,” Reutzel says. “It all worked out this time.”

After pushing his overall win total to 14 on the season with two triumphs last weekend, Reutzel and the Folkens Brothers Trucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X crew are set for three more nights of All Star Circuit of Champions competition at Chillicothe, Ohio’s Atomic Speedway on Thursday, Friday and Saturday this weekend. The weekend set offers up more than $22,000 in first-place money.

Running his series win total to 12 with last weekend’s triumphs at Bedford and Port Royal, the defending series champion takes a 44-point lead into this weekend’s Atomic triple.

Reutzel kicked off last weekend’s triple by racing into the Dash with a heat race win and then securing the pole position for the feature with a Dash triumph aboard the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment machine. From there, Reutzel led the way all 30-laps in the Bedford (PA) Speedway Thursday night feature.

“The track was really interesting for the feature, it changed throughout the race,” Reutzel recalls. “We led all the way, but I spent the entire race searching around because the fast line kept moving from one part of the track to another.”

Friday brought the Night Before the Tuscarora 50 at central Pennsylvania’s Port Royal Speedway and Reutzel was fast out of the box aboard the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspensions entry, setting overall quick time over a field of 58 entries and securing the pole position for the feature after a Dash win.

“Port Royal is always good, but I think that was the best condition that I’ve ever seen it,” Reutzel says. “There was a big curb on the fence on both ends and you could run it hard.”

Reutzel jumped into the lead at the outset of the feature and appeared destined for a second win in as many nights only to cut a left rear tire on some debris after leading the opening dozen circuits. Returning to action after a quick tire change, Reutzel sliced back through the field to salvage a ninth-place finish.

“We had a really good car, we would have won without hitting that debris and then we drove right back through the field in what time we had left,” Reutzel recalls.

Set for Saturday’s big-money night at Port Royal’s Tuscarora 50, Reutzel timed in fourth among his group and then secured the sixth starting position for the feature after a runner-up heat race finish amongst the field of 53 overall entries.

“The track was night and day difference from the night before,” Reutzel says. “It was really slick in the heats, but there was enough up top of turns one and two in the feature that you could rip the fence and then run the bottom to middle of three and four.”

Reutzel found the track to his liking, working forward to take the lead on the 13th round and then setting the pace for the next seven circuits before handing the lead back to Dewease before the midrace stoppage.

“We were really good early, but as the fuel load came off, we got really loose,” Reutzel explains.

Minor adjustments at midrace proved to be the difference, as Reutzel rocketed past Dewease for the lead on the 28th lap and never looked back in the 50-lapper for the biggest payday in his racing career.

“We were good for a lot longer in the second half, it wasn’t until about the last five laps that the car went away and I was just holding on and hoping I had enough of a lead,” Reutzel says. “The first half of the race, I was really just trying to save my stuff for the second half. Then when we got the lead, I decided it was time to go as hard as we could.”

The 21st career All Star Circuit of Champions triumph for the reigning series champion and current points leader was among the most prestigious and most lucrative of his career.

“Just to win here against this level of competition and in front of this many incredible fans, it’s pretty unreal,” Reutzel summed up.

With at least one win over each of the past four weekends since a top-five finish at the Knoxville Nationals, Reutzel and the BRM No. 87 team will try to keep that streak intact with this weekend’s three-night set at Ohio’s Atomic Speedway.

2019 Quick Stats: 70 races, 14 wins, 32 top-fives, 45 top-tens.

Andrews Produces Podium at Butler Motor Speedway After Gear Failure Costs Him Attica Championship

Inside Line Promotions - QUINCY, Mich. (Sept. 12, 2019) - Chris Andrews nearly scored the Attica Raceway Park track title during his first year of driving the Mackey Motorsports 410ci winged sprint car.

Unfortunately, a broken rear-end gear with just three laps to go in the championship feature on Aug. 23 cost him the championship at the oval in Attica, Ohio.

"That was very heartbreaking," he said. "We went into championship night with confidence and it started so well with fast time, we won our heat from fourth and we went from sixth to second right away in the feature. I was saving something for the end and then I felt something and quickly pulled it out of gear. It happens, but we had a shot at the win and the championship."

The team returned to action last Saturday at Butler Motor Speedway, where Andrews scored another podium finish.

"I don't have a lot of laps at Butler," he said. "We came from seventh to finish third behind two drivers who have a lot of experience at that track so I think we did okay.

"I don't know if the Mackey's want to run any more this year. I know they really wanted that Attica championship and that was so very disappointing for the entire team."

Andrews said he is talking with another team to possibly run a handful of shows this year.

"We ran great all year," he said. "We didn't tear anything up. Heck, we finished with the same top wing and front wing. We will go after it again in 2020 with the Mackey's and hopefully race a little more so I can get better.

"At the start of the year I didn't even know what I was going to race. I got hooked up with the Mackey team and we were fast every night. We were right there every time we unloaded. Even though we didn't get the Attica championship we tried our damnedest all season at every race. I can't thank Ken and Duane enough for giving me the opportunity to win races."

Andrews, a two-time Attica Raceway Park champion, finished third in the track's 2019 standings.

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 7 - Butler Motor Speedway in Quincy, Mich. - Heat race: 3 (9); Feature: 3 (7).

SEASON STATS -

20 races, 2 wins, 7 top fives, 11 top 10s, 15 top 15s, 19 top 20s

Reutzel Confirmed For Trophy Cup

by Ron Rodda

The Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions point leader, Aaron Reutzel, is a confirmed entrant for the 26th Annual Trophy Cup, set for October 17-19 at Tulare Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, California.

With a dozen wins in the series, Reutzel will join 3rd in points Cory Eliason and 4th in the standings Paul McMahan in the $200,000 event for winged 360 sprints. As part of the 110 entries, the trio of All Star drivers will be racing the most challenging format in sprint car racing while seeking the $26,000 prize for the event champion.

Half of Reutzel’s All Star wins have been in the last month, making the Clute, Texas driver one of the hottest in the country. Two additional wins this season pushes the total to 14 with 31 top five finishes already collected.

A micro sprint graduate, Reutzel is no stranger to 360 sprints as his first title came in the ASCS Gulf Coast section ten years ago and two years later he was rookie of the year in the ASCS National series.

The Abreu Vineyards 26th Annual Trophy Cup Presented by Rudeen Racing benefits the Make-A-Wish Foundation and will reach the two million mark in donations this year. All entry fees, raffle proceeds, and many supporting fund raising activities have been donated to the Foundation for over 20 years.

Burger Barn Night Before the Nationals

The Burger Barn Night Before the Nationals will feature a full night of action, headlined by the 360 Sprint Cars along with the Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks and HRW Automotive Mini Stocks also in action for a jam-packed Friday night. For the first time, the Night Before the Nationals has expanded to include triple 15-lap features with the winner of each race guaranteed to start 11th or better for Saturday’s A-Feature. The Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks and HRW Automotive Mini Stocks will battle in their final Features of the season. With the points chases already wrapped up in both stock car divisions, it’s a race for bragging rights.

15th Annual Canadian Sprint Car Nationals

Its Ohsweken’s biggest and most exciting event of the year and in 2019 the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals are shaping up to be one of its most entertaining. In addition to the Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars racing for the $10,000 USD winner's prize, the Action Sprint Tour powered by RaceRivalz.com will crown its 2019 champion with its final race of the season to round out an entirely Winged Sprint Car racing program that should see over 100 Sprint Cars in attendance.

Among those drivers pre-entered in the event is American Sprint Car Series National Tour point leader Sam Hafertepe Jr. The Rockwall, TX driver picked up the win last week at Ohsweken in a tune-up as he tries to earn his second career Nationals win after winning in 2011. Hafertepe’s Hill’s Racing teammate, Dylan Westbrook, scored his third-straight Ohsweken championship and now will look for his first Nationals win. Ryan Turner, an Ohsweken regular and the 2019 Southern Ontario Sprints champion, is also coming into the night in search of his first Nationals triumph in his second year racing for the Burger Barn Racing team.

The current Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints point leader, Paulie Colagiovanni, comes into the weekend looking to become a new CSCN winner after scoring seven wins on the ESS tour so far this year. The top three in Patriot Sprint Tour points are all entered as well, including New Jersey's Davie Franek, New York's Joe Trenca, and Pennsylvania’s Jordan Thomas. Add to the list the NRA Sprint Invaders’ champion ‘the Hurricane’ Randy Hannagan and it’s a formidable list of challengers, before even mentioning Great Lakes Super Sprints champion Phil Gressman of Helena, OH and GLSS runner-up Dustin Daggett, the only driver to qualify for every previous edition of the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals.

Also pre-entered is two-time and defending CSCN champion Parker Price-Miller, who returns to race with the Hill’s Racing team for the 2019 edition of the event. Steve Poirier, one of two drivers to win the Nationals three times, is also set to return to battle for his first title since 2012. For the full list of drivers pre-entered, visit http://ohswekenspeedway.ca/8691-2/.

For the Action Sprint Tour powered by RaceRivalz.com, Saturday’s race will likely result in Beamsville, Ont. native Josh Hansen winning his first career Sprint Car championship. Hansen simply has to start his heat race to be crowned champion. The teenage pilot of the No.88h will compete in both classes, running his Crate car while also making his first Nationals appearance in his 360 car. Liam Martin enters the night second in AST points with a 12-point advantage over Paul Klager. Jacob Dykstra is 12 points back of Klager in fourth and has a 15-point lead over fifth-place Steven Beckett.

Cory Turner Gearing Up For Canadian Sprint Car Nationals After Pair of Podium Finishes
 

CAISTOR CENTRE, Ont. (September 12, 2019) – Cory Turner is gearing up for the biggest race of the season at Ohsweken Speedway, the $10,000 USD-to-win Canadian Sprint Car Nationals on September 13-14. Turner enters the largest event on his schedule after his second best weekend of the season where he debuted his new Petroplus/Burger Barn/Mobil 1 No.13 ride and scored back-to-back runner-up finishes at Ohsweken Speedway and at Merrittville Speedway with the Southern Ontario Sprints on September 6 and 7, respectively.

“We were pretty good Friday night,” Cory said. :That was the first night out for a brand new car and it worked pretty well. We won our heat race after starting fourth and finished second after starting second in the Feature.”

Early in the race, Turner slipped back to third, but then made a pass off a restart to get past Dylan Westbrook for second. Then in the second half of the race, Turner held off Westbrook and Mack DeMan to score the runner-up result.

Then on Saturday, Turner has a good start to the night with a second-place finish in his heat before driving from sixth to second in the main event.

“We had quite a few cautions,” Turner said of Saturday’s race. “By lap 14, I got to third, but with the lapped cars in he had a full straightaway on us within a lap. After that I was able to get by Shawn Sliter to run second.”

While Turner scored a second-place finish, his brother Ryan Turner scored a fourth-place to earn the Southern Ontario Sprints 2019 championship over Mitch Brown. Ryan’s win makes it two straight SOS championships for Team Turner Racing after Cory won the title in 2018.

“I was really happy for him,” Turner said of his brother’s title. “I’m really proud of our Burger Barn Racing and Team Turner Racing group for getting another SOS championship with my brother.”

Now, Cory has switched his attention to the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals. After qualifying for Saturday’s A-Feature in three of the last four years against more than 60 cars each time, Turner believes he and his team have the tools and talent to finish at the front of the field this year.

“We’re really crossing our Ts and dotting ours Is,” Turner said. “We want to be really prepared for Friday with it being Burger Barn sponsor night and the triple 15s. We’re hoping to have a really good run that night and then a bit of luck Saturday. First of all we want to make the A-Main and then have a good run in it.”

The key to a successful chance at a Canadian Sprint Car Nationals win is a strong heat race, Turner said. With so many talented drivers in each heat race and only three qualifying spots in the A-Feature from his heat, there’s no time to waste.

“If you don’t run well in your heat race, you can get buried in a B or C-Main,” Turner said. “If you don’t time well, you can still race into the top-three and maybe get in the dash. It’s pretty much all about the heat race. It will determine where you start in the A-Main or if you even make it. You have to be on it right from the start. You can’t let the cars string out. You can’t waste any time. It’s all out from the drop of the green.”

For Turner, the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals are a culmination of the hard work he and his team have spent developing their racing program since May. It’s also a chance for the team to measure themselves against other teams.

“I look forward to Nationals weekend every year,” Turner said. “We get to race against the best of the best for 360 drivers in the Northeast. It’s a good gauge of where you’re at as a team. I think our team is at a point where we can run in the top-five or top-10.”

The Canadian Sprint Car Nationals kicks off on Thursday, September 12 with test and tune night prior to the first on-track competition with the Burger Barn Night Before the Nationals on Friday, September 13 where three drivers will earn guaranteed starting spots of 11th or better for the 35-lap main event at the 15th annual Canadian Sprint Car Nationals presented by Arrow Express on Saturday, September 14.

Sprint Car Bandits and Texas Sprint Series Create Synergistic Alliance for 2020 Racing Season

Garland, TX (09/12/19) by DarinShort.com. Officials of the DFW-based Sprint Car Bandits® (SCB) series and Texas Sprint Series (TSS) are pleased to announce they have formed a synergistic alliance for the 2020 racing season – and beyond. For those unfamiliar, the SCB is a 360C.I. Sprint Car series and the TSS is a RaceSaver IMCA Sprint Car group.

There is some crossover with the drivers that choose to race in both series, but that is not the focus of this alliance – growing track fan attendance is.

This collaborative effort will allow each series to book events at area tracks in a manner that will allow them a much higher level of fan retention, as the goal is to have one series, or the other, racing on one night only. Little, if any, rules changes in each respective series are anticipated by this new alliance.

Timing for this collaboration has been set into motion with the recent reopening of Boyd Raceway, with Richard Snider at the helm – Richard also operates the Texas Sprint Series.

Snider comments: “With Boyd Raceway reopening, it requires my full-time attention, and the Texas Sprint Series has such a great group of racers. The reality is sinking in that I can’t handle both without one affecting the other. “

Snider continues: “That being said, I’ve been a big fan of the Sprint Car Bandits series and have been to several of their events the past four seasons. The fan excitement they create with the Fan Fests and quality of racing is electrifying. Plus, they understand the economics of sprint car racing on each side of the fence – and to the track operators as well. So, I cannot think of a better arrangement than for the ‘Bandits to handle the day-to-day operations, such as creating an intertwined schedule and event marketing for the Texas Sprint Series.”

“We plan to host several events at Boyd Raceway for both the SCB and TSS in 2020, and I’m really excited about the future of both groups – and the health and sustainability of sprint car racing – in the Metroplex and surrounding areas. In this day and age we need as much cooperation between series and tracks as possible, and this is a giant leap in the right direction.” Snider concludes.

Darin Short (Sprint Car Bandits co-founder) comments: “Booking events at area tracks has always been such an arduous and complex task, and it can take months of work and planning to create an effective schedule for the upcoming racing season. With this new collaboration, it will take one significant variable out of the formula, as now we will know what nights are available – and which ones aren’t – so we don’t double-book events on top of each other unknowingly. We want to help to maximize fan turnout at all these events. And fans not having to choose one sprint race or the other is a good step in the right direction to meeting that goal. We fully plan to have a combined schedule that doesn’t have both series racing on the same night during the entire season, which will be a revolutionary accomplishment for Sprint Car racing in this region.”

Short continues: “Many tracks don’t release their schedules at the same time, so you can be left hanging wondering if the event dates you have booked will stick once they release theirs. Now we’ll know, as we’ll be booking the events and the individual track schedules are no longer an issue, as we’ll know when both series’ will be racing well in advance of the full track schedules are released.”

Will Eggimann, Principal with the SCB comments: “There are so many positive scenarios with this alliance that make sense for teams, fans, marketing partners and promoters – and that’s been our ultimate goal all along with the SCB.”

Eggimann continues: “We will also expand the online visibility of the TSS, which in turn will help with added fan-awareness and track attendance.”

A limited number of events in each series will be booked in 2020. If you are an area track promoter or owner that would like to book dates, please email Darin at dssm93@MSN.com ASAP with your preferred event dates (and series selection) along with your contact information and we’ll get back in touch immediately to confirm those dates or available alternative dates – as area tracks are gobbling up race dates already. Both series’ are limiting the travel distance to about 150 miles of the DFW Metroplex.

Businesses interested in Marketing Partnership programs for the 2020 season (for both the TSS and SCB) can email SprintCarBandits@Outlook.com and they will get back to you right away.

As stated earlier, there are no significant rules or procedure changes being planned for either series. The next rounds of press releases will focus on details such as schedules, off-season happenings (such as the Smiley’s Racing Products Texas Expo), registration; etc.

Be watching for the next round of series news on our traditional marketing channels, such as www.SprintCarBandits.com and on Facebook @SprintCarBandits or by keywords Texas Sprint Series. The TSS will also have a new online home being built during the off-season.

THANK YOU to all the teams, fans, marketing partners, series workers, track workers, series tracks and vendors for their support of both series’ in 2019 – and we’re looking forward to a highly coordinated 2020 racing season with the Sprint Car Bandits series and Texas Sprint Series! In the meantime, the season continues for each series, with the next TSS event being held this Saturday, September 14th at Grayson County Speedway and September 28th for the SCB at 82 Speedway.

 

 

SWEENEY RUSH SPRINT CARS HEAD TO NY THIS WEEKEND; EXPANDED "EMPIRE STATE CLASSIC" TO FEATURE BONNELL'S ROD SHOP WEEKLY SERIES SPECIALS AT RANSOMVILLE FRIDAY & GENESEE SATURDAY & SUNDAY PLUS POINTS FUND

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(Pulaski, PA)...The Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Sprint Car Series powered by Pace Performance will head to New York this weekend for the first time during the 2019 season.

A points fund has also been put in place thanks to CNC Specialties, Intense Fab & Design, and Pace Performance.

The "Empire State Classic" debuted in 2018 at Genesee Speedway for their second annual "Topless Nationals". Sixteen Sprint Car teams from four different states made the trip to the Batavia, New York 1/3-mile oval by traveling between two and six hours. It marked the first time full-size Sprint Cars raced at Genesee since 2009 when winged "360s" were part of the track's weekly program! Chad Ruhlman swept both events last year in route to the $5,000 inaugural Bonnell's Rod Shop Championship.

This year's "Empire State Classic" has been expanded to three nights thanks to the addition of Ransomville Speedway on Friday night. The Chevrolet Performance 602 crate engine-powered non-wing Sprints on RUSH Visual Methanol, spec Hoosier Tires, and $140 sealed/spec Bilstein Shocks will then join back up for Genesee's "Topless Nationals" for two nights once again on Saturday and Sunday. All three nights will pay $800 to-win, $160 to-start (complete payoff posted below).

The "Empire State Classic" points fund has also been expanded to five paying positions ($300, $200, $150, $100, $75) thanks to CNC Specialties in Apollo, Pa. owned by the Woodhall Family, Intense Fab and Design in Brookfield, Ohio owned by former Sprint Car racer Doug Kekich, along with Pace Performance in Boardman, Ohio part of the Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC banner and branding sponsor of RUSH.

"We are really looking forward to this weekend," stated RUSH Director Vicki Emig. "Our racers really enjoyed last year's two-day show at Genesee, and it was great to have Ransomville contact us to be part of this weekend. Ransomville has held a couple RUSH Late Model shows in the past, but this will be the first time we'll showcase our Sprints on their racey track and to a new audience. The fans really enjoyed the Sprints last year returning to Genesee for the first time in nine years. They are a perfect fit for their topless-themed weekend. Track promoter Jim Johnson has run our RUSH Late Models on a weekly basis each of his four years promoting the fairgrounds oval and they are a big part of this weekend as well."

Brian Woodhall, in his first full year of RUSH, leads the $5,000 to-win Bonnell's Weekly Series points by just two over Zach Morrow. Woodhall picked up his first career RUSH win at Sharon Speedway in June; meanwhile, Morrow has two wins (Pittsburgh & Lernerville) and three runner-up finishes in his last five races to close the gap. Former RUSH Sportsman Modified "Futures Cup" Champion and two-time winner, Jeremy Weaver, is in his first year in a Sprint Car and is third in points in search of his first Sprint win as is fourth place points man, Brandon Blackshear, another Sprint rookie. Brandon's brother Brad, who won his first Sprint race on June 30 at Bradford, is fifth in points. Defending champion, Chad Ruhlman, leads the way with eight victories, while his son Kevin leads the "Futures Cup" standings.

Sanders 4th at the Platinum Cup with Dale Miller Motorsports

PETERSEN MEDIA- Bouncing back from an early incident during Wednesday’s Platinum Cup feature event, Justin Sanders and Dale Miller were very strong during Thursday’s finale as they picked up a fourth place finish.

“Unfortunately Wednesday night ended just as the feature started, but we came back even better on Thursday and really had a good run,” Justin Sanders said.

Timing the Thompson’s Buick-GMC/Thompson’s Jeep-Ram/Dale Miller Septic, Inc. backed No. 4SA machine in fourth fastest in his time trial flight, the Aromas, CA driver would run second in his heat race to Bud Kaeding.

With only heat race winners making the Dash on this night with the Top-4 from Wednesday already locked in, Sanders would take the green flag from the 12th starting position for the scheduled 40-lap feature event.

On an extremely slick surface that would ultimately take rubber, Sanders flexed his muscle as he worked his way through the field. Working inside the Top-10 with the waiving of the green, Sanders would climb up into the sixth position by the race’s ninth circuit.

With track conditions deteriorating, officials opted to cut 10-laps off the feature and alert the drivers that it was now 30-laps under a lap 16 caution. When the race resumed, Sanders would work his way up to fifth, before taking over the fourth position on the 23rd lap.

Keeping his machine in the rubber in the waning laps, Sanders would cap a very strong run from 12th as he took the checkered flag in the fourth spot.

“It was tricky, but he had a really good car as was able to make some moves as things opened up in front of us,” Sanders said. “Thanks to Dale and Tara Miller, and all the guys who continually work so hard on this car.”

The Dale Miller Motorsports team would like to thank Thompson’s Buick-GMC, Thompson’s Jeep-Ram, Dale Miller Septic, Inc., North County Plastering, Anrak Corporation, Yuba-Sutter Aviation, Frank’s Body Shop, Wion’s Powder Coating, Walker Performance Filtration, Factory Kahne Shocks, Smith Titanium, FK Rod Ends, Triple X Race Co., King Racing Products, A.R.T. Speed Equipment, and Vortex Wings for their support.

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts- 15, Wins- 1, Top-5’s-5, Top-10’s-9

ON TAP: Sanders will return to action tonight in Placerville, CA.

 

 

PASS visits ‘the Groves’ this weekend

After running for the final time in 2019 on their smallest bullring, the PA Sprint Series teams move to two of their largest venues, supporting major 410 sprint races Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway and Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway.

Both nights’ shows will feature sprint cars only, and both PASS/IMCA features will be 20 laps.

Friday night’s race will be the Dirt Classic Qualifier and the next-to-last race in Williams Grove’s Diamond Series for 410s. Adult admission is $18 ($10 for youth). Gates will open at 5:30 p.m. with racing at 7:30.

This will be the only PASS feature this season at Williams Grove. Rain washed out an event scheduled last spring. Veteran driver Scott Ellerman of Landisburg is the only former PASS winner at Williams Grove pre-entered, but about 30 other drivers will be trying to join him on that winners’ list.

On Saturday, the 410s will run in the $20,000-to-win Jim Nace Memorial National Open at Selinsgrove. Adult admission is $30 ($15 for students). Gates will open at 4:00 p.m. with racing at 7:00.

This is the final of four appearances for PASS at Selinsgrove. Hometown racer Ken Duke Jr., who leads the national RaceSaver Sprint points, won the first two races, and Devin Adams took the most recent event. Both are entered for Saturday.

Last weekend at Path Valley Speedway Park, Garrett Bard claimed his second PASS feature (third overall in RaceSaver Sprints) in barely two months of competition at this level.

“Iceman” Duke enters the next-to-last weekend of PASS points racing with a 29-point lead over defending champion “Zach Daddy” Newlin.

Next weekend, PASS joins the Laurel Highlands Sprint Series for a pair of co-sanctioned races at Bedford Speedway on Friday and Hagerstown Speedway Saturday. For more schedule and other details, go to www.pasprintseries.com, and follow PASS on Facebook for the latest news.

Seventh Annual Jerry Soderberg Memorial Championship Saturday Night at DCRP!

Lonnie Wheatley, DODGE CITY, Kan. (September 11, 2019) – Another rousing season of championship points chase action is nearly in the books at the state-of-the-art 3/8-mile Dodge City Raceway Park clay oval in southwest Kansas.

After kicking off the 2019 chase in early April, the points season comes to a conclusion with Saturday night’s Seventh Annual Jerry Soderberg Memorial Championship event.

The Precise Racing Products DCRP Sprint Cars will square off with the United Rebel Sprint Series for the final time of the year with the IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sport Modifieds, IMCA Stock Cars and IMCA Hobby Stocks finishing off the 2019 point chases as well.

Saturday night’s racing action is set to get under way at 7:30 p.m.

While the points season ends after Saturday’s action and then Sunday’s Little DCRP card of Micros and Karts, the curtains officially come down on the 2019 DCRP season after the September 20-21 World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Cars “Boot Hill Showdown.”

Leading the way into Saturday’s card are Luke Cranston in the DCRP Sprint Car ranks, William Nusser in IMCA Modifieds, Jeff Kaup in IMCA Sport Modifieds, Angel Munoz in IMCA Stock Cars and Reagan Sellard in IMCA Hobby Stocks.

While each of those five will try to secure a 2019 DCRP track championship, the battles for final top-ten positions in each class will be fast and furious throughout.

Zach Blurton is among the reigning Soderberg Memorial Championship event winners after besting last year’s crop of DCRP vs. URSS competitors with Brendon Gemmill, Dakota Sproul, Chris Oliver and Tathan Burkhart also securing championship night wins.

It was Blurton’s second Soderberg win after topping the inaugural event in 2013 with Taylor Velasquez topping three of four in between with reigning DCRP 305 Sprint Car Nationals champion Jake Bubak picking up the other win in 2016.

Brendon Gemmill is the only one to post multiple Soderberg wins in the IMCA Modified ranks after nabbing his first one in 2015, while there have been six different IMCA Sport Modified winners in as many season finales.

Current points leader Angel Munoz is the only multiple-time Soderberg winner in the IMCA Stock Car ranks with wins in 2017 and 2015 while there has yet to be a repeat winner in the IMCA Hobby Stocks.

Past Jerry Soderberg Memorial Championship Winners:

2018 – Zach Blurton (DCRP vs. URSS Sprint Cars), Brendon Gemmill (IMCA Modifieds), Dakota Sproul (IMCA Sport Modifieds), Chris Oliver (IMCA Stock Cars), Tathan Burkhart (IMCA Hobby Stocks).

2017 – Taylor Velasquez (DCRP vs. URSS Sprint Cars), William Nusser (IMCA Modifieds), Brian Davidson (IMCA Sport Modifieds), Angel Munoz (IMCA Stock Cars), Duane Wahrman (IMCA Hobby Stocks).

2016 – Jake Bubak (DCRP vs. URSS Sprint Cars), Cole Traugott (IMCA Modifieds), Jeff Kaup (IMCA Sport Modifieds), Michael Pepper (IMCA Stock Cars), David Berger (IMCA Hobby Stocks).

2015 – Taylor Velasquez (DCRP vs. URSS Sprint Cars), Brendon Gemmill (IMCA Modifieds), Jamie French (IMCA Sport Modifieds), Angel Munoz (IMCA Stock Cars), Reagan Sellard (IMCA Hobby Stocks).

2014 – Taylor Velasquez (URSS Sprint Cars), Jesse Richter (IMCA Modifieds), Nate Ginest (IMCA Sport Modifieds), Ron Hartman (IMCA Stock Cars), Cody Davis (Thunder Cars), Jarett Lunow (Hornets).

2013 – Zach Blurton (URSS Sprint Cars), Ryan Heger (IMCA Modifieds), Josh Appel (IMCA Sport Modifieds), Ron Hartman (IMCA Stock Cars), Dan Rogers (Thunder Cars), James Phelps (Hornets).

Christian Koehler captured a top-five finish with the Must See Racing Sprint Car Series at Berlin Raceway on Saturday. (Jacob Seelman photo)

HOLLY, Mich. – Christian Koehler is hoping to convert the momentum of his recent career-best finish with the Must See Racing Sprint Car Series presented by Engine Pro into even more success.

Koehler, a part-time competitor with the 410ci winged asphalt sprint car tour in recent years, grabbed a top-five result Saturday at Berlin Raceway, part of a consistent performance from start to finish.

The South Bend, Ind., native qualified sixth, ran well in his heat race and then finished fifth in the 30-lap main event at the seven-sixteenths-mile oval, the first top-five finish of his Must See Racing career.

“It’s definitely a good feeling,” said Koehler of his top-five effort. “To come out here and build on the way that we ran last time, which was all right, but not quite where we want to be … and to get up in the top five and be behind guys like Jimmy and Anthony (McCune) and Jason (Blonde) is just great for a team like ours. Heck, even Charlie Schultz was up there, and he was our feature winner last time we were here, so that tells you the competition level of this series that we were in the middle of all that.

“It feels good to be up there with that company and competing, so now hopefully we can try and get that first top three or maybe even that first feature win,” Koehler added. “We’re raising the bar.”

Koehler noted that he felt the speed in his No. 10k sprinter from the moment he laid a tire onto the race track for qualifying.

“That qualifying lab was pretty impressive, but you know, I had to let off a little bit coming out of (turn) four and that hurt us,” Koehler tipped. “Otherwise, we may have even been a little bit quicker, but we did a lot of things right and a lot of things we’re proud of right now. This car definitely has been hooked up, and if we can get everything dialed in right where it needs to be, we have a chance to go for a win.

“But yes, from the start, that qualifying lap definitely gave us a lot of hope.”

Koehler was among those who was able to navigate traffic well during the 30-lap Engine Pro Fast Car Dash feature event, staying on the lead lap for the entire distance and running as high as fourth before a late caution allowed Anthony McCune to rally past him on a green-white-checkered finish.

Still, however, Koehler was pleased with the overall effort of his family race team.

“It was a little bit crowded out there, but the slower cars did a good job of keeping it in one lane so that the faster cars could make it around them,” Koehler said. “A few times, we did have a couple of close calls running up on the back of slower cars … but that’s just a learning process for me as our car gets quicker and I learn more about how to get through that lap traffic.”

With one top-five finish in hand, Koehler’s long-term goal is continued improvement.

“We’re planning to be at the next race at Jennerstown Speedway, so hopefully everything goes good this Thursday when we run non-winged in the Anderson 125-lap event and then we can get the car set up for a winged race on Saturday and go out to Jennerstown and hopefully have another solid outing.

“The goal is to build on the last race and get another top five, if not better.”

Koehler and the rest of the Must See Racing travelers, including four-time defending series champion Jimmy McCune, current series point leader Anthony McCune, Canadian hotshoe Ryan Litt, Ohio veterans Charlie Schultz and Adam Biltz, National Sprint Car Hall of Famer Jeff Bloom and more will next test their skills during the second annual David D. Mateer Tribute Race, Sept. 14 at Jennerstown (Pa.) Speedway.

Additional heavy hitters expected to make the haul to Pennsylvania include recent Berlin winner Jason Blonde, all-time series fast qualifier and two-time champion Brian Gerster and Bobby Santos III, a former NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour titlist.

The lightning-quick half-mile oval is welcoming Must See Racing back for a second-straight season, after Jimmy McCune won the series’ debut appearance last year to clinch his fourth championship.

Pit gates at Jennerstown open at 10 a.m. on Saturday, with a one-hour sprint car practice session scheduled from 12:45 p.m. to 1:45 p.m. in the afternoon. Sprint car qualifying begins at 3 p.m., with opening ceremonies and feature racing beginning just before 6 p.m. local time.

The Super Cup Stock Car Series will co-headline the racing card alongside Must See Racing, with late models, street stocks, chargers, modifieds and 4-cylinders also in action at Jennerstown as well.

Kraig Kinser Records Top 10 During Only Race in Oregon This Season

Inside Line Promotions - CHICO, Calif. (Sept. 11, 2019) - Kraig Kinser's best result during a trio of World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series races last week was a ninth-place run during his lone visit to Oregon this season.

Kinser has another three-race week on tap as the final West Coast swing wraps up in California. The team will compete on Wednesday at Placerville Speedway in Placerville during the 49er Gold Rush Classic presented by Riebes NAPA Auto Parts; on Friday at Stockton Dirt Track in Stockton during the NOS Energy Drink Showdown at Stockton; and on Saturday at Calistoga Speedway in Calistoga during the Wine Country Outlaw Showdown.

"Our goal is to continue with strong qualifying and putting a whole night together," he said. "Consistency is big for us. We know we'll have off nights, but we want to be consistent most nights when we hit the track."

Kinser kicked last week's action off in Oregon with a visit to Willamette Speedway in Lebanon, where he qualified sixth quickest, placed fifth in a heat race, finished eighth in the qualifier and rallied from 12 th to ninth in the A Main.

"It's positive to move forward in the feature," he said. "The car was handling good. Unfortunately it took too long to get the car that good. We want to be stronger early in the night and take advantage of a good qualifying run."

The team then headed to Silver Dollar Speedway for the Gold Cup Race of Champions weekend. Kinser qualified second quickest on Friday, but struggled with the car in the heat race. He was caught up in a flip during a heat race on Saturday. Both nights ended with Kinser pulling off the track early in the main event.

"It wasn't what we wanted," he said. "Friday started off well with a good qualifying lap, but we couldn't capitalize. You can't be off when you put yourself in that good of a position. We couldn't take advantage of it. We'll keep working to try to keep us in a positive position."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 4 - Willamette Speedway in Lebanon, Ore. - Qualifying: 6; Heat race: 5 (3); Qualifier: 8 (6); Feature: 9 (12).

Sept. 6 - Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, Calif. - Qualifying: 2; Heat race: 5 (1); Feature: 22 (14).

Giovanni Scelzi Impresses at Driven2SaveLives BC39 and Tuscarora 50 Events

Inside Line Promotions - PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Sept. 11, 2019) - Giovanni Scelzi earned impressive results during a pair of marquee racing events last week.

Scelzi won both a heat race and a qualifier before recording a 14 th-place result out of more than 80 drivers during the Driven2SaveLives BC39, which was only his sixth career start in a midget and first in a year. He then picked up a top five out of more than 50 sprint car drivers during the famed Tuscarora 50 weekend.

"It was a great week overall," he said. "We did well in both cars. A big thanks to Toyota Racing Development and Jack Irving as well as Tucker-Boat Motorsports for the opportunity to race the BC39. I thought it went really well. Not running a midget for a year and then to win a heat and a qualifier and make the A Main was pretty good given how many great drivers were there."

Scelzi's heat race win from second on Wednesday and his qualifier victory from fourth on Thursday ranked him ninth in overall points out of the 80-plus competitors. That started him on the inside of the fifth row for the main event at The Dirt Track at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indianapolis, Ind.

"I rode around in ninth or 10th early before someone flipped in front of me and I slid into him," he said. "It bent the left front shock. The nose wouldn't drop or release after that so I ran the bottom trying to survive."

Scelzi restarted at the back of the field and he rebounded from the crash to post a 14th-place finish.

He then ventured to Port Royal Speedway to drive for Bernie Stuebgen during the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions two-day event.

Scelzi qualified seventh quickest out of 58 drivers on Friday, ranking fourth in his group to garner the pole position for a heat race. He won the heat to lock into a dash. A sixth-place finish in the dash lined him up on the inside of the sixth row for the main event.

"I got the bottom working, but we were a little too good too early and got free at the end," he said. "You're always happy with moving forward and earning a top five when you're racing that level of competition."

Scelzi's fourth-place finish was his 16th top five of the season.

He capped the weekend on Saturday by just missing the heat race inversion by less than two tenths of a second at the Tuscarora 50. Instead of starting on the pole of a heat race - the winner started in the top six of the main event - Scelzi lined up fifth. He rallied to a third-place effort to lock into the 18th starting spot in the feature, but the night ended early in the main event with a DNF.

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 4 - The Dirt Track at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indianapolis, Ind. - Heat race: 1 (2).

Sept. 5 - The Dirt Track at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indianapolis, Ind. - Qualifier: 1 (4); Feature: 14 (9).

Sept. 6 - Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pa. - Qualifying: 7; Heat race: 1 (1); Dash: 6 (5); Feature: 4 (11).

Sept. 7 - Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pa. - Qualifying: 33; Heat race: 3 (5); Feature: 26 (18).

Michalski enjoys Tuscarora experience; Williams Grove Speedway ahead

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

PENNDEL, Pa. (September 9, 2019) – Despite ending his weekend at the Port Royal Speedway ‘Speed Palace’ without a main event start, Penndel, Pennsylvania’s Brett Michalski enjoyed his Tuscarora 50 experience, already planning ahead for the 2020 edition.

“It was a fun weekend. The Tuscarora 50 has grown into a monster event and we were more than excited to be a part of it,” Brett Michalski explained, driver of the Brett Michalski Motorsports/JR Michalski Heating & Air Conditioning/Irish Rover Station House/York by Johnson Controls/Wood Services/Big Heads/Richboro Pub/Maxim Chassis/Don Ott Racing Engines/Kriner Engines/Penske Shocks/VP Racing Fuels/Hoosier Tire/Wings Unlimited/Racer’s Used and New Parts Warehouse/No. 73B sprint car. “The amount of work the Port Royal Speedway staff has put into that place is pretty incredible.”

With well-over 50 cars signed-in for ‘Night Before The Tuscarora 50’ and Tuscarora 50 competition on Friday and Saturday, September 6 & 7, just making the main event was going to be a feat in itself. Unfortunately, Michalski did not make the cut, but he will utilize the lap time acquired as notes for future visits.

Brett Michalski will continue his 2019 campaign with a trip to Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, September 13. The Dirt Classic Qualifier will be the main attraction at the world-famous half-mile, awarding a top prize equalling $5,000.

“I thought we were pretty good all weekend. It was a great effort by everyone,” Danny Dietrich said, who owns 14 wins in 2019, including two against Tony Stewart’s All Stars. “We had a lot of our partners there with us this weekend including Derek from Sweeney, Pace and Self Made. To perform that well with him in town is really special.”

Sides Motorsports Taking Two Cars to Placerville, Stockton and Calistoga This Week

Inside Line Promotions - CHICO, Calif. (Sept. 10, 2019) - Sides Motorsports is seeking its first World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series triumph since April 2016.

There have been several close calls since then and last Friday was another great opportunity as Tim Kaeding led the first 16 laps of the 30-lap main event during the opening night of the Gold Cup Race of Champions at Silver Dollar Speedway.

Kaeding qualified third quickest before he won both a heat race and the dash to garner the pole position for the main event. He paced the field for the first half of the race before a minor miscue allowed eventual winner Brad Sweet by on Lap 17.

"There were a lot of big ruts," said team owner Jason Sides, who noted his performance during the weekend was more focused on not tearing up his equipment. "TK had a good lead and hit one rut coming off turn two. That got him off the back straightaway and that's when Brad got by. For the most part it was a great race. I'm an optimistic. We want to win when you're that close, but a top five, a top three is great, especially when you're racing with all those guys."

Kaeding finished in the runner-up position, which was the team's best outing of the season.

Kaeding produced another good showing on Saturday, timing in 12 th quickest in qualifying and placing third in a heat race to line up ninth for the main event.

"At one point he got up to third or fourth in the feature," Sides said. "There at the end he got shuffled back a little bit with some of the corn row ruts. The inside wasn't as good at the beginning of the race, but toward the end of the race it was better. Sometimes it was just being in the wrong place at the wrong time."

Kaeding hustled to a sixth-place outing, which marked the team's 16 th top 10 of the season.

Sides scored his best result of last week on Wednesday at Willamette Speedway in Lebanon, Ore., where he capped the night with a 14th -place finish.

This week marks the final three scheduled races of the season with Kaeding in a Sides Motorsports entry. Both Kaeding and Sides will race on Wednesday at Placerville Speedway in Placerville, Calif., during the 49er Gold Rush Classic presented by Riebes NAPA Auto Parts; on Friday at Stockton Dirt Track in Stockton, Calif., during the NOS Energy Drink Showdown at Stockton; and on Saturday at Calistoga Speedway in Calistoga, Calif., during the Wine Country Outlaw Showdown.

"I think he'll have a good shot at winning it at Placerville," Sides said. "He won at Stockton a couple of weeks ago and I look forward to going to Calistoga because I've been better on bigger tracks. I hope to have a good run there."

Dover Earns Ninth Win of Season for 11th Time in Last 12 Years

Inside Line Promotions - EAGLE, Neb. (Sept. 10, 2019) - Jack Dover captured his ninth feature victory of the season last Friday during a dominating performance to wrap up his Midwest Sprint Touring Series championship in style.

Dover swept the night, winning a heat race from third and the feature from the pole. Not only did he win the main event, Dover lapped up to third place.

"I got a good start on the heat and was able to get the lead going into turn one and we won that," he said. "We had good speed all night. I drew the No. 1 in the feature redraw and we got a great start again. The motor is taking off awesome right now. We got the lead right away and never looked back."

Dover has won at least nine main events during 11 of the last 12 years.

It appeared he was on his way for a weekend sweep. After Saturday's Carpet Land Nebraska 360 Sprints show at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb., rained out, Dover joined the series on Sunday at Eagle Raceway during the Nebraska Cup. He won a heat race after starting second to earn a spot into the feature redraw. Unfortunately, he pulled the highest number - eight - to start the A Main eighth.

"I got up to fourth on the first lap and then to third the next lap," he said. "About eight laps in we got to second. By that time the leader had just over a straightaway on us. We fought lapped cars for a bit. Once we got around them we were able to track down the leader with five laps to go. I figured I had to try something because there were about seven lapped cars all bunched up and me and the leader. I went into turn three and four with a big slide job. I knew right away it was too hard. I slid into the wall and cut the right rear tire down. We went down the frontstretch and into turn one and the car wouldn't turn so we crashed into the wall."

Dover was unable to finish the race and he was credited with a 15 th-place result, which dropped him to second in the championship standings with one series race remaining this season.

"It was a really, really good weekend," he said. "Our results don't show it at Eagle, but we have some good speed now after going to the chassis dyno last week. I'm wishing the season wasn't coming to an end."

Dover will take this weekend off before resuming action Sept. 19-21 at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo., during the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour.

Sept. 6 - Rapid Speedway in Rock Rapids, Iowa - Heat race: 1 (3); Feature: 1 (1).

Trenca Maneuvers to Top 10 During New York Sprint Car Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - CANANDAIGUA, N.Y. (Sept. 10, 2019) - Joe Trenca hustled to a ninth-place finish on Sunday during the New York Sprint Car Nationals at Land of Legends Raceway.

The Mucci Motorsports driver maneuvered from eighth to fifth place during a Patriot Sprint Tour heat race and from fifth to fourth place in a qualifier on Friday. He then finished where he started - third - in a heat race on Saturday before the night's main event was postponed to Sunday afternoon because of rain.

"Sunday was a day show," he said. "The track took rubber and there wasn't much you could do about it. We had speed. We were hoping it wasn't going to take rubber. We run pretty well there when it stays slick. We were up to seventh or eighth at one point and got out of the rubber once and got passed."

Trenca's rally from 13th to ninth marked his 13th top 10 of the season.

The team returns to action this Saturday at Ohsweken Speedway in Ohsweken, Ontario, Canada, during the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals with the Patriot Sprint Tour.

"The last couple of years we've had bad luck to not make the show," he said. "This year we've been a lot better all year. Our main goal it to put it in the show and then put ourselves in the best position."

Trenca's career-best finish at the track was seventh in 2017 and his event-best result was an eighth-place showing during the 2014 edition of the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals. His season-best result during two starts at the track this year is 13th.

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 6 - Land of Legends Raceway in Canandaigua, N.Y. - Heat race: 5 (8); Qualifier: 4 (5).

Kaleb Johnson Notches Top-10 Finish at Eagle Raceway

Inside Line Promotions - EAGLE, Neb. (Sept. 10, 2019) - A promising evening evolved into a challenging finish for Kaleb Johnson last Sunday at Eagle Raceway.

Johnson's night began well as he made the redraw for the feature after advancing from seventh to second in his heat race.

"We caught a bit of a break in our heat when a wreck on the first lap moved us up a bit on the restart," he said. "The track was still tacky and made it difficult to pass so we were fortunate to make the redraw."

Johnson's good fortune continued as he drew the pole starting position for the night's main event.

"I was able to lead about the first 11 to 12 laps," he said. "We had the car setup to run the bottom because the bottom had worked pretty well for us in the heat race and the top of the track was kind of rough.

"I got passed a lap before a red came out. After the restart, the car went away a little bit. Then I tried to run the top and hit a hole and almost hit the wall. I became a little cautious after that since there was really no need to wreck anything. I felt lucky to hang on to 10th."

It was a disappointing finish after the strong start for Johnson, who had finished fourth the prior week at the track during the biggest 305 race of the year - the RaceSaver Nationals.

"It was a little frustrating after starting on the pole and leading for a while," he said. "Probably the most frustrating part was that it came right after we had done so well there in the big race the week before. But that stuff happens. We had a car to roll into the trailer afterward so that was good."

Adding to the weekend's disappointment was the cancellation of a scheduled race with double features at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb., the prior evening due to rain, which included a rescheduled feature from earlier in the year.

Johnson will take this week off and is looking forward to his next competition at his home track of Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn., during the Casey's Open Wheel Nationals Sept. 20-21.

"I think we'll have a good field of cars for the race since it pays well, even more than the Jackson Nationals," he said. "That makes it more exciting and fun. It's especially nice for us since it's just 10 miles from our shop."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 8 - Eagle Raceway in Eagle, Neb. - Heat race: 2 (7); Feature: 10 (1).

Hill Amped for Canadian Sprint Car Nationals This Weekend at Ohsweken Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - OHSWEKEN, Ontario, Canada (Sept. 10, 2019) - Alex Hill is looking forward to one of the biggest races of the year as she's set to tackle this weekend's 15th annual Canadian Sprint Car Nationals at Ohsweken Speedway.

"I'm always excited about racing the Sprint Car Nationals at Ohsweken," she said. "It's the biggest sprint car race in Canada and at my home track, which is where I have the most experience racing. It's nice to have a chance to race at home and in front a lot of our fans.

"Since it's such a big event, the competition will be tough, too. We've improved at most of the tracks we've raced at this year and we hope we can do the same at Ohsweken."

Hill and her team were able to have one final tune-up for the big event last Friday at Ohsweken Speedway. She placed sixth in a heat race before advancing from 18th to 16th in the A Main.

"We didn't have the best night," she said. "I didn't get a good start in the heat race and we missed the setup.

"We tried some new stuff in the feature and it didn't work so it was better we tried it last week than this weekend. We know what works from before so we'll go on from there."

Skinner Nearly Captures Top 10s During Double-Duty Competition at Riverside International Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. (Sept. 10, 2019) - Marshall Skinner battled a challenging night of incidents beyond his control as he competed in two classes of sprint cars at the Fall Nationals last Saturday night at Riverside International Speedway.

"We just didn't have a good night," he said. "We got spun out in both features. It was frustrating."

Skinner rolled off in the 12th starting position in the 360 sprint car feature after finishing third in his heat race.

"I was able to move up to around seventh or eighth and wasn't doing too bad," he said. "It was a pretty solid field of cars. A lot of them weren't slouches. But then a kid slid me. I let him have the top of the track while I stayed in the middle. Then he bicycled on the cushion and shot back down the track. I saw him coming and got on the binders real hard. He hit me in the right front and spun me out.

"There were about 10 laps to go and the race track wasn't real forgiving so I decided it wasn't worth restarting at the back and pulled in."

Skinner competed earlier in the evening in the 305 sprint car class and he experienced a similar incident after starting 13th in the 21-car feature.

"We were actually running pretty good," he said. "I was up to about seventh when a guy got into me and spun me out. I had to go to the back and came back to finish 12th. We had a good car. I'm just not real comfortable in it."

Skinner is hoping to turn around what's been a sub-par season for him so far this Saturday at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., during the Ralph Henson Tribute with the ASCS Mid-South Region.

"I pulled the motor this week," he said. "I may try to degree the cam a little different and see if that helps. We changed the cam last year. We've had some good runs with it, but when the track gets slick I really struggle. It's kind of like driving with an on-and-off switch.

"This year has been a struggle, mainly because I have too many irons in the fire and I don't have time to race the right way. I have little time to work on the car during the week and usually show up at the track by myself with no help. I'm pretty much just a one-man show. I'm hoping that I can make some changes this week that will give us some better results."

Masse Closes Season With Top-10 Finishes at Castrol Raceway Doubleheader

Inside Line Promotions - EDMONTON, Alberta, Canada (Sept 10, 2019) - Cody Masse capped his 2019 racing season with a pair of top-10 finishes during NSA Series competition last weekend at Castrol Raceway.

"It wasn't a flashy weekend results-wise, but it was a successful one from the standpoint that we accomplished what we wanted," he said. "I got some good laps in at a track where I haven't been very comfortable and we have some good notes to take back there next year."

Masse's weekend got off to a challenging start following a disappointing qualifying run on Friday. That placed him eighth on the starting grid for his heat race.

"It's difficult when you put yourself behind right away in qualifying, especially with this format," he said. "We were able to pick up one spot in the heat race and that put us starting 13th for the feature."

Masse, who qualified 15th quickest and placed seventh in a heat race, was able to advance in the main event to a 10th-place finish.

"Our car worked well in the feature and we were able to get by a couple of guys," he said. "We've struggled there before so it was nice to have a car that worked. We probably could've moved further ahead, but we didn't have the horsepower to make the passes."

Masse got off to a better start on Saturday with an improved qualifying effort.

"I felt I couldn't have done much better on my qualifying laps," he said, regarding being ninth quickest. "But we missed the inversion by two hundredths of a second, which is kind of how our year has gone."

Masse started and finished fifth in his heat race.

"Our car worked well in the heat, but the first four cars were really good and I just maintained my starting spot," he said.

Masse rolled off ninth for his final race of the year.

"Our car wasn't quite as good as the night before," he said. "The track kind of tricked us. I thought it would stay consistent and not slick off, but it actually got faster. Then a couple of cars in front of me got together and I checked up to avoid them. They eventually got going and there wasn't a caution, but I lost a couple of spots after getting passed when I slowed. I probably could've finished a couple of spots higher, but I thought it was better to be cautious with the way things have been going for us lately."

Masse felt fortunate to take the final checkered flag of the season in ninth due to the status of his equipment.

"We don't have many spare parts left and I didn't want to cause further expense for the off-season," he said. "My hat's off to Wesmar and the engine they built. We finished with 39 nights on it and it was still running strong. I'm impressed."

Cole Macedo Hounded By Tough Luck in Hanford, CA

PETERSEN MEDIA- Climbing aboard the Tarlton Motorsports No. 21 entry on Saturdya night in Hanford, CA just one week removed from an impressive feature event win, Cole Macedo would have a night riddled with bad luck as he now looks towards a return trip to Placerville Speedway on Saturday.

“We were really fast all night long,” Cole Macedo said. “In the feature it was like we had a bull-eye on our car and some bad luck turned our night sour.”

With 24 cars on hand at the Central Valley facility, Macedo would time the Tarlton and Son, Inc./Executive Auto Sales/Pabco Gypsum backed No. 21 machine in 12thquickest after going out late in the session.

Lining the potent matte black machine up on the pole of his heat race, Macedo would hammer the throttle when the green lights flashed, and raced his way to the important win.

The win would prove to be important as it locked the Lemoore, CA driver into the Dash, where his second place run put him on the front row to start the 30-lap feature event.

When the feature came to life on the racy Keller Auto Speedway surface, Macedo settled into third as he kept the lead duo in his sights. Continuing to work, contact from another car in his left rear would force him to bring out the yellow with a broken wheel.

Going to the work area, the Tarlton Motorsports crew would do a great job of making repairs to Macedo’s mount and got him back on the speedway where he would tag the back of the field.

Still, with a great car underneath him, Macedo would fight his way back through the fray as he quickly reappeared back inside the Top-10. Getting up to sixth, more bad luck would find Macedo as a car would get out of shape in front of him, and with nowhere to go Macedo would get involved and his night would come to an end.

“Thanks to the guys who work on this thing, I felt really good and thought we were going to have a good finish,” Macedo said. “Luckily we get to try again this weekend.”

The Tarlton Motorsports team would like to thank Tarlton and Son, Inc., Executive Auto Sales, Pabco Gypsum, Bandy and Associates, All Star Performance, and BG Lubricants for their support through the 2019 season.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-16, Wins-2, Top 5’s-8, Top 10’s-11.

ON TAP:Tarlton Motorsports and Cole Macedo will travel to Placerville Speedway on Saturday night.

Nolen Racing’s Hard Work Pays Off;

Swanson Earns Fifth Silver Crown Victory of Year

By Leading Every Lap of Rich Vogler Classic

BROWNSBURG, Ind., Sept. 10 — A team’s heart is most readily seen when it remains focused and keeps working hard despite setbacks.

Nolen Racing’s heart was readily on display in the last few days after it missed its first USAC Silver Crown race in almost 20 years on Sept. 1. After setting the second-fastest time in the final practice session on old tires at the Du Quoin, Ill. State Fairgrounds, both its primary and secondary cars had engine problems before the race and the team was forced to withdraw from the Ted Horn 100.

“It could cost us the team championship, but that was just bad luck,” said team owner Gene Nolen of Greenwood, Ind.

Another driver, Patrick Lawson, graciously loaned Nolen Racing’s driver, Kody Swanson, his car to drive in that race so Swanson could finish 14th and remain the point leader in the series’ driver standings as he goes for his fifth championship.

But Nolen Racing, which has never won a USAC Silver Crown team championship and would really like to, lost its lead in the team standings for the first time this season, dropping to second place.

Last year Nolen Racing, a veteran USAC Silver Crown stalwart, ran two cars that placed third and fifth for the season, and it was second in 2017.

The predicament the Whiteland, Ind.-based team found itself in Saturday afternoon at Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis was not as obvious. During practice the team struggled to find the sweet spot in the handling department for its famous yellow No. 20 that would make it fast yet drivable for Swanson in the 100-lap Rich Vogler Classic that night. Faces were long and brows were furrowed as the driver and crew pondered what changes to make to help the car get off the 0.686-mile asphalt oval’s four turns quickly without using up its engine, brakes and Hoosier tires.

Simply stated, the car was a handful to drive in the heat of the afternoon, and no one on the team knew why or what exactly to do to solve the problem.

The driver and crew kept working, however. They made their best guess at what would work during the race as the tires’ rubber wore down, the fuel load decreased, and the air and track temperatures dropped.

They desperately wanted the points that came with being the fastest qualifier, but Swanson qualified second with a lap in 20.633 seconds. That was just 0.059 off the 20.574-seconds lap Swanson’s younger brother Tanner ran to earn the Fatheadz Eyewear pole.

The team’s work paid off royally in the race, however. Swanson won a drag race against his brother into Turn 1 at the start, and led all 100 laps for his and Nolen Racing’s fifth victory in the series this year.

Swanson said afterwards the car was good during the race, and he made changes to his line constantly to adapt to the changing conditions and to find what would work best. “I was all over the track all night, trying to find the best way around,” he said of his drive in the Beast chassis powered by a Tranter-prepared Chevy engine. The team is sponsored in part by KECO Coatings, Goodridge and K&N Filters.

It was Swanson’s fifth victory ever at this particular track, and it extended the Zionsville, Ind. resident’s record as the driver with the most victories by anyone in series history to 29.

Swanson now leads the driver championship by 63 points over Justin Grant, 577 to 514. Nolen Racing also made big strides to regain its lead in the team championship with Saturday’s victory. It’s now 15 points behind Klatt Enterprises, 567 to 552.

Grant finished eighth on Saturday night, and Klatt Enterprises’ driver, Kyle Hamilton, finished third to the Swanson brothers, who are originally from Kingsburg, Calif.

There were three caution flags in the race, from laps 10 through 15, laps 44 through 47, and laps 66 through 68, but Swanson was up to the challenge on each restart.

He didn’t have the fastest car in the first quarter of the race, as both Hamilton and Tanner Swanson ran faster laps then. On lap 25 he had just a 0.313-second advantage over his brother.

By lap 41 he had a bit of breathing room, as he’d put 0.576 of a second between he and his sibling. By lap 45 Tanner Swanson had the fastest lap of the race so far followed by Kody Swanson, Hamilton, Grant and David Byrne.

But on lap 52 Kody Swanson set the fastest lap that anyone would run in the race with a lap in 20.956 and extended his lead over his brother by 1 second for the first time in the race; 1.012 to be exact.

He had a 2.100-second lead by lap 57, and a 1.726-second advantage that disappeared when the final yellow flew on lap 66.

But Swanson kept his head about him on the restart and continued to hit his marks. He was not only able to keep his brother at bay for the final restart on lap 69, but he had a 1-second lead two laps later.

Although Swanson was working hard, his advantage grew on the final green-flag run. His lead was over 2 seconds by lap 74, 3 seconds 10 laps later, 4 seconds by lap 91, 5 seconds by lap 93, and over 6 seconds by lap 98. His margin of victory was 6.165 seconds.

“That was a really good win,” said Nolen, who watched the whole thing from the pits in a wheelchair after undergoing heart surgeries in June. His poodle, Berry, was on his lap the whole time.

“Our car was really good,” Swanson said afterwards. “It got tight during the longer runs and I had to move around all night to try to find the best line, but maybe the other guys were dealing with the same thing or worse,” he said. “Every stint I drove the car a little bit different, using the throttle and the brakes a little different and using the banking of the racetrack a little different, just trying to help my car be the best it could be to try to keep the lead. We picked up a vibration for the last 30 laps and it was hard to negotiate [lapped] traffic, but I liked the way it turned out.

“It’s really hard to beat Tanner too,” he added. “He knows all my tricks.

“I have to thank our engine builder, Tranter Engines,” he continued. “It was nice to win that drag race into Turn 1 at the start. I’m thankful for the effort he turned in.

“And I’m very grateful for everyone on this team’s effort,” he said. “They didn’t quit, and neither do I. You can either wait for something good to happen to you or you can put the work in and try to help. Everyone who is a part of this has continued to give everything they could.”

Only two races remain in 2019: Sept. 22 at the Illinois State Fairgrounds in Springfield, and Sept. 27-28 at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio.

Lance Hallmark Wins Wingless Main And Brian Cronk Dominates Wallbanger Cup; Trent Carter 2019 Herz Precision Parts Wingless Nationals Champion
By Ben Deatherage
Cottage Grove, Oregon- Cottage Grove Speedway completed the 2019 Herz Precision Parts Wingless Nationals on Saturday, September 7th. The ¼-mile clay oval also hosted the track’s biggest Street Stock race of the season, the Wallbanger Cup. In addition to Wingless Sprints and Street Stocks so were the Dwarf Cars (which is covered in a separate race report).

In the Wingless Sprints main event drivers that had earned the most points in Friday’s time trials, heat races, and the main event, as well as additional heats on Saturday, started in the back of the field. Drivers that had the least amount of points had the luxury of beginning the race upfront. However, after the final feature, when all the points got tallied the driver with the most points would be declared the overall champion.

At the drop of the green flag, Mark Herz seized the early race initiative. The Sandy veteran maintained the position until lap five in which Lance Hallmark took possession of the top spot. The only thing to slow him down was a lap thirty flip in turns one and two.

It was the only stoppage of the entire fifty-lap affair. Hallmark went on to dominate the balance of the distance to win the main event. It is his first victory at Cottage Grove in the current season for the longtime McMinnville racer.

Redmond’s Brent Rich, running for car owner Nickye Mendenhall, had an incredible performance and ended his night in second-place. Third went to Ricky Ashley, of Thurston, with Redondo Beach, California traveler Trent Carter coming across the wire in fourth. Salem racer Tim Alberding completed the top five finishing order posted a fifth-place effort.

When all of the points were combined, Trent Carter was declared the Herz Precision Parts Wingless Nationals champion. He is the second person ever to claim the honor of winning the event as Kyle Miller won the seven previous editions.

In the Street Stocks, they raced for fifty-two laps for the 2019 Wallbanger Cup. The race is run of Mark Howard a significant figure that helped establish the Street Stock class in 2005. The feature featured six yellows in the first eighteen laps.

Despite all of the cautions, one thing remained the same. Brian Cronk laid down the smackdown in the main and led all fifty-two laps. Cronk, of Portland, mastered every restart despite a couple of challenges. It is the first time that Brian has won the race and is the seventh different driver to hoist the winner’s trophy at the end of the race. He now has two wins in CGS competition this season.

Justin Evans, of Lebanon, wound up the runner-up followed by Creswell’s Garrett Barth, in third. Albany youngster McKenzie Lockhart put in a fourth-place result over fifth finishing Troy Chamberlain, from Junction City.

Cottage Grove Speedway returns for an incredibly action-packed culminating two rounds on Friday, September 13th, and Saturday, the 14th. It is the final two nights of racing for 2019 at CGS. Tickets each night are $13.00 for Adults, Seniors/Juniors/Military $10.00, Youths (6-12) $5.00, and Children (5 & Under) are FREE. Both nights the Pit Gates open at 1:00 PM, Front Gates 3:30, and Time Trials at 5:30 with racing beginning at 6:00.

Starks Sets New Track Record at Bedford Before Charging to All Star Win at Port Royal

Inside Line Promotions - PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Sept. 10, 2019) - Trey Starks enjoyed his return to Pennsylvania last weekend during a trio of Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions shows.

The Gobrecht Motorsports driver established a new track record on Thursday at Bedford Speedway in Bedford before he bested more than 50 other drivers on Friday during the opening night of the Tuscarora 50 weekend hosted by Port Royal Speedway.

The action began on Thursday as Starks set quick time during qualifying, advanced from fourth to second place in a heat race and maneuvered from sixth to fourth in the dash to line up on the outside of the second row for the A Main.

"Whatever we were doing that car was visibly faster than the rest of the field," he said. "Jeff (McCall) had the car perfect and the motor was running great. It made my job easy. Some tracks you get rewarded for driving really hard and I don't think Knoxville Raceway or Jackson Motorplex are those types of tracks. We've spent most of our season at those two tracks so it was nice to get somewhere where I could hold it wide open and let it eat. It was a really nice feeling to have a fast car all night. Unfortunately, we had a flat in the feature running fourth. I don't know if we had the car to win, but we were top three, top five. It was a good opening night back in Pennsylvania."

Starks was battling inside the top five late in the race when the flat tire resulted in a 20th-place finish.

He carried that speed into Friday's All Star event at Port Royal Speedway, where Starks qualified fourth quickest out of 58 drivers.

"It felt really good to start strong at Port Royal," he said. "We drew a good number, which helps. But Port Royal isn't a track that changes a lot during time trials. We went out early and went pretty fast. We were on the front row of our heat and ran second to Gio (Scelzi) the whole time. We had a restart with four laps to go and we had a tire going down pretty bad. We barely held on to second to make the dash.

"We pulled the pole position for the second dash and I tried to just get a good start and set a good pace. It's huge to start on the front row. We won that to start second in the A Main, which was a little different. We had two chances at the start. I tried to get a jump on Aaron (Reutzel), but the inside was the preferred line. I fell in line and we ran about nine green flag laps. He got out on me at the start, but I felt like we started reeling him in once we got to traffic. I didn't get a good restart and instead of racing for the lead we slid back to third. About that time Aaron got a flat tire. I was kicking myself for letting James (McFadden) get by me because I knew that'd be me in the lead. We had a restart and I put a slider on him in turns three and four. I tried to make sure I didn't lose any speed. I knew the top was where to be so I ran it as hard as I could. We had a couple of restarts and I changed my restart style a little. I put my head down and ran as hard as I could. It was great to get a win against a great field of cars. I think it backs up our Knoxville win (during the Knoxville Nationals last month) a little bit and it gives us more momentum going into these last few weeks."

Starks' victory was his second of the season and second career at Port Royal Speedway.

The weekend concluded on Saturday with Starks overcoming a poor qualifying run to rally through the field and charge from 24th to 13 th in the main event.

"The race track was lot different on Saturday and we weren't prepared for it," he said. "We were chasing it all night and put ourselves behind big time in qualifying. The good part is we tried to stay focused and keep working. We started seventh and ran fifth in the heat, which put us in a better spot in the B Main. We had to finish sixth and I knew I had to go on the start and keep moving forward. I got that sixth and final transfer spot. In the feature it was a high-speed chess match. We picked off cars when we could get them. I think I picked off a handful at the start and then got them one by one. All in all it was a good weekend."

The team plans to compete this Friday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., and Saturday at Selinsgrove Speedway in Selinsgrove, Pa., during the Jim Nace Memorial 37th annual National Open presented by Red Robin.

Hopkins Second at Petaluma Speedway Following Tough Trip to Chico

PETERSEN MEDIA- A three-race week last week saw Shane Hopkins compete at both Silver Dollar Speedway and Petaluma Speedway. While he would have two less than desirable nights in Chico, CA, Hopkins made the Saturday tow to Petaluma Speedway worthwhile as he grabbed a second place finish.

“Chico on Wednesday and Thursday didn’t go to well, but fortunate we had a chance to redeem ourselves at Petaluma Speedway on Saturday night, and we did just that,” Shane Hopkins said.

Timing the High Sierra Industries/ARP/ADCO backed No. 21 machine in sixth quickest in qualifying time trials, the Placerville, CA driver knew he simply needed to transfer through his heat to qualify for the redraw.

Doing just that and finishing third, Hopkins would find himself with the four pill and in the second row to start the feature event. When the race came to life, Hopkins was strong on the Petaluma Gumbo, just as he was when he made a surprise visit a few weeks back.

Getting into the second position, Hopkins then had the daunting task of chasing down Petaluma Speedway veteran, Bradley Terrell. With traffic never really becoming an issue, Terrell was able to keep a healthy gap between himself and Hopkins.

Still doing a great job himself in limited appearances at the Sonoma-Marin County facility, Hopkins picked up a career best second place finish at the track.

“My Dad, Chris, and Jeremy did a great job all night long and I have to thank them for working so hard for me,” Hopkins said. “It was great getting a bunch of racing in last week, and I am excited to get back to Placerville on Saturday night.

Hopkins would like to thank High Sierra Industries, ARP, ADCO, C&H Veteran Enterprises, Soares Motorsports, Brian Sperry Racing, Capitol ACE Hardware, El Dorado Disposal, Gary Morgan Graphics, Jake Morgan Racing, Johnson Motorsports, MD Builders, Joe Hunt Magnetos, Image Salon and Spa, PT Shocks, Tiner Hirst Enterprise, Kyle Johnson Racing, and Petersen Media for their support in 2019.

2019 BY THE NUMBERS- Starts-21, Wins-1, Top-5’s-3, Top 10’s-8

ON TAP- Hopkins will be back in action on Saturday night at Placerville Speedway.

Blake Carrick Excited For Return Trip To Placerville Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA: Amidst a busy stretch of racing in Northern California, Blake Carrick is looking forward to a return trip to Placerville Speedway on Saturday night for the track’s regular season finale after competing in two nights of action at Silver Dollar Speedway.

“We were a lot better than our results showed this past week at Silver Dollar Speedway,” Blake Carrick said. “Wednesday night I worked inside the Top-10 but had a tear off issue that forced me out early, and on Thursday it took rubber early and we couldn’t do much.”

Timing the CVC/Cemex/Interstate Oil backed No. 38B entry in sixth quickest in his qualifying group on Wednesday night to kick off the Gold Cup Race of Champions, Carrick would pocket a sixth place finish in his heat race on a locked down surface.

Transferring into the ‘A’, Carrick and company would watch the track intently as it continued to take shape for the 30-lap feature event. Lining up 16th, Carrick was able to find a line to his liking on a very racy surface as he worked his way towards the Top-10.

Making some nice moves against some of the regions top drivers, Carrick would find himself up in the eighth position. Getting into eight, Carrick would have helmet problems and in the name of safety, he would make the wise decision to pull off the speedway and forfeit his Top-10 position.

Returning to Silver Dollar Speedway on Thursday night, Carrick would see a polar opposite surface than what was offered up one night prior as it would be very slick early in the racing program.

Timing his Carrick Motorsports car in third fastest in time trials, Carrick would again finish fourth in his heat race and put him 17th in the feature event starting line up.

While track officials tried to save the surface and keep the track from taking rubber, it would be to no avail as the slick surface would return within a few laps and the rubber would soon start to go down.

Able to pick up a few positions, the Lincoln, CA driver capped his two nights of racing at the Gold Cup Race of Champions with a 14th place finish.

“Like I said, the results weren’t there but we had a ton of speed,” Carrick said. “Thanks to all my guys for their hard work, and I am looking forward to getting up to Placerville Speedway this weekend.”

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

ON TAP: Blake Carrick will be at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night.

TMAC TUESDAY-5th at Jerry Richert Memorial

PETERSEN MEDIA: One week removed for a scary wreck at Lake Ozark Speedway that left him very sore, Terry McCarl was back up and running with the IRA Sprints and picked up a fifth place finish at the Richert Memorial on Saturday night.

“My plan on Saturday was to take it easy, but the guys gave me a great car and I had to go for it,” Terry McCarl said.

Having mechanical issues sideline him on Friday night in Superior, WI, the Destiny Motorsports team was in action on Saturday night at Cedar Lake Speedway.

Timing the MonDak Portables/Ft. Union Supply and Trading/TheSnowPlow.com No. 4 entry in seventh fastest in time trials, the Altoona, IA wheelman would pocket a second place finish in his heat race.

Lining up fifth in the feature event, McCarl had a great feel for his car, and rather then take it easy the veteran driver opted to mix it up. Working his way forward he would soon find himself in the Top-Five.

Battling with the likes of Brooke Tatnell and Mark Dobmeier, McCarl would still play it safe during much of the race as he capped the night with a fifth place finish.

“It was good to get back in the car and race, but I was definitely timid at times, which was hard because we had such a good car,” McCarl said. “I think the plan is to take the weekend off and rest up with some big stuff coming at the end of the year.”

Destiny Motorsports and Terry McCarl would like to thank MonDak Portables, Ft. Union Supply and Trading, TheSnowPlow.com, Bosma Poultry, Inc., STC, JLT Ent., KC Breweries, Justice Brothers, HRP, Country Builders Construction, Octane Ink, CM Rock, Rens Trucking, Chris Spaulding Attorney at Law, Kilani Fenders, Burnett’s Rock and Landscaping, Phil & Vivian, Bob & Beulah, Mastell Brothers, The Barrel House, Central Iowa Sheds, Aurora Rod Ends, Winters Performance, Crow Safety, All Pro, Engler, , All Star Performance, KSE Racing Products, Pro Shocks, Wilwood, Weld Wheels, Bell Helmets, Hinchman Indy, Petersen Media, Classic Ink, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, Hoosier Tires North, AL Drivelines, Saldana Tanks, Smith Titanium, and Scribner Engineering for their continued support.

Henderson and Sandvig Racing Lead 26 Laps in IRA Sprint Car Series Action

Inside Line Promotions - NEW RICHMOND, Wis. (Sept. 10, 2019) - Justin Henderson and Mike Sandvig Racing ventured to Wisconsin last Saturday to compete in the 18th annual Jerry Richert Memorial at Cedar Lake Speedway.

It was a promising night with the Bumper to Bumper IRA 410 Sprint Cars before the team brought home a 14th-place finish after getting caught up in a late-race accident while battling for the lead.

"We had a lot of speed and we had a great race car," Henderson said. "It was pretty much only our second full night in a new car so to come out and lead a bunch of laps, I can't be too upset even though the finish doesn't show how good we truly were."

Henderson began his night by showing speed as he laid down a lap of 10.956 seconds, good enough for third quickest among 24 cars. He started fourth in heat race action and advanced two positions to finish second.

"From hot laps on we didn't make many changes at all," said Henderson, who was also competing in his own 360 sprint car. "With running two divisions, we honestly didn't have time to do too much. It was just like go, go, go. But also the car was good enough that we didn't need to do much and it showed in the heat race. We pretty much added fuel and just went out and the results were what we expected."

Starting from the pole position in the A Main Henderson jumped out to an early lead at the drop of the green flag. He led for 26 laps before getting passed with four laps to go. The following lap, with the top three cars all battling for the lead, Henderson got a run exiting turn two and attempted to retake the lead. However, another driver was also going for the lead and the two banged wheels. Henderson spun out and ultimately finished 14 th, ending a promising night in disappointing fashion.

"I was running a nice pace and I tried to pull a slide job on a lapped car and really let those guys gain on me," he said. "We had a chance to get the lead back and unfortunately it was just two guys going for the same spot on the track and it didn't work out. It's disappointing as we had a car capable of winning."

Henderson and Sandvig will be off this coming weekend as they prepare to return to IRA Series action Sept. 20-21 during the Casey's Open Wheel Nationals presented by Sea Foam at Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn.

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept 7 - Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wis. - Qualifying: 3; Heat race: 2 (4); Feature: 14 (1).

It’s also home to race driver Garrett Bard, but if Bard’s fortunes continue on their current upward curve, he may become the first thing you’ll know about Wells Tannery.

The 23-year-old scored his second victory in a two-months-long “career” in the PA Sprint Series Saturday night at Path Valley Speedway Park. It was his third RaceSaver Sprint win, with the other having come the previous weekend in a Laurel Highlands Sprint Series race at Bedford Speedway. It also was part of a Saturday double, with Bard also winning Path Valley’s 600cc micro sprint feature.

The PASS/IMCA race was the last of the year for the series at Path Valley, and John Walp’s third-place finish earned him the track’s championship over “Zach Daddy” Newlin.

Bard started on the pole in his CG Racing Engines/Lias Tire #95 and led all the way for a convincing win, but Walp didn’t make it easy, challenging after the event’s caution, which came out on lap 14 when rookie Derek Hauck spun in turn 2 and collected Randy Sterling and two-time Path Valley winner Drew Ritchey. Ritchey retired to the pits, while the others continued.

On the green, Walp’s GMS Piling Products/La Napoli II Pizza/Dotzel Trucking #5 tried Bard on the inside but to no avail. On lap 20, Scott Lutz slipped his Fredericksburg Eagle Hotel/Speedway Mart & Car Wash/Adams Auto Sales #33 into second but couldn’t catch Bard.

In Victory Lane, Bard expressed mixed feelings about the event’s two cautions, saying that his car “took two or three laps to get comfortable” after each green. On the other hand, they give him a brief respite from heavy race traffic.

“As the race went on,” he summarized, “the car kept getting better.”

Two-time Path Valley winner “Iceman” Ken Duke Jr., who had started 13th, was challenging for fifth place when suspension damage ended his night.

Following Bard, Lutz and Walp at the finish were New Jersey’s Larry McVay and Pittsburgh’s Rob Felix. The rest of the top 10 went to Newlin, Jared Zionkowski, “Nitro” Nick Sweigart, Brad Mellott and Sterling.

Newlin was the race’s hard charger, moving up 10 spots from his 16th starting position.

Heat races for the 21 cars on hand went to Walp, McVay and Lutz.

Next weekend the PASS sprinters move from their smallest bullring to two of their largest venues, supporting major 410 sprint races Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway and Saturday night at Selinsgrove Speedway. Friday night’s race will be the Dirt Classic Qualifier and the next-to-last race in the track’s Diamond Series for 410s. On Saturday, the 410s will run in the $20,000-to-win Jim Nace Memorial National Open at Selinsgrove. PASS sprinters will compete in 20-lap features both nights. Racing starts at 7:30 Friday night and 7:00 p.m. Saturday.

Ben Worth Makes First Platinum Cup Feature

PETERSEN MEDIA: Getting his feet wet at Silver Dollar Speedway in the two races prior to the 66th Annual Gold Cup Race of Champions, Ben Worth was happy to put the Tiner Hirst Development entry in the show on Thursday night against a stout field of cars.

“It was a fun week to get up to Gold Cup and be able to race on Wednesday and Thursday night,” Ben Worth said. “I felt really comfortable both nights and it was great to make the show on Thursday.”

Wednesday night, Worth opened his two-night stint up by timing the THE/Larry Davis Farms/GP Development machine in 14th in his qualifying group.

From the fourth row of his heat race, Worth would race to a seventh place finish and find himself in the night’s ‘B’ Main event. Lining up eighth in the ‘B’, issues on the start would see Worth get knocked out of shape and then contact would ensue and it would end his night.

Back in action on Thursday night after the trash was on to get his machine put back together, Worth would time in sixth fastest on the extremely slick Silver Dollar Speedway surface.

Picking up a fifth place finish in his heat race, the Coalinga, CA driver would punch his ticket into the feature event after picking up a win in the semi. Picking up a couple of positions early in the race, contact would get Worth into the wall on the race’s sixth lap and it would bring his night to an early end.

“I have to thank everyone at THE for their continued work on the car, and to help me out as a driver,” Worth said. “Always a lot of fun, and I can’t wait until the next one.”

The Tiner Hirst Enterprise Racing team would like to thank Tiner Hirst Enterprise, Larry Davis Farms, GP Development, Wright Process Systems, Fisher Racing Engines, SRP, Wilwood, XYZ Machine, DMI, HRP, Sway Away, Kevin Sharrah Designs, Prior Engineering, System One Pro Ignition, Sweet Manufacturing, Sway Away, Schoenfeld, Warehouse Paint, and Roseville Precision for their continued support.

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Races-8, Wins-0, Top 5’s-0, Top 10’s-2

Willie Croft Runs Second During Thursday Night Portion of Gold Cup

PETERSEN MEDIA- Competing in all four nights of the Gold Cup Race of Champions, a second place run on Thursday would highlight Willie Croft’s week.

“Wednesday and Thursday night went okay for us, but we really had issues with the Outlaws on Thursday and Friday,” Croft said.

After an eighth place finish on Wednesday night to open the week up, Croft came out swinging during Thursday night’s program.

Earning quick time honors in his qualifying flight aboard the Holey Smokes BBQ/ButlerBuilt/Brown and Miller entry, Croft would look very strong in his heat race as he powered his way to the win over Rico Abreu.

Making his way into the Dash, Croft would run third to Shane Golobic and Colby Copeland as he would move into the feature event where he would take the green from the second row.

On a very slick surface that would take rubber very quickly in the feature event, Croft would use an early restart to get into second as he chased after Shane Golobic. Running in second, Croft had the task of pushing his machine in pursuit of the race lead, but also had to keep his tires under him.

With Golobic very good out front, Croft would too have a good night as he took the checkered flag with a second place finish.

Friday night marked the World of Outlaws portion of Gold Cup Race of Champions, and Croft would get off to a tough start having engine woes early as his team would then go to work for time trials.

Ending up 28th fastest, Croft would then be forced into the semi where more issues hindered him as he finished 12th.

Looking for a better run on Saturday, Croft would get timed in 20th fastest, and it would line him up seventh in his heat. Making a couple of nice moves in heat race action, Croft would finish fifth and punch his ticket into the 66th Annual Gold Cup Race of Champions feature event.

The feature event would not go as planned as Croft would be forced off the racing surface and back to his pit as he finished 24th.

“Thanks to my guys for working hard all week long even though things didn’t go our way,” Croft said. “Hopefully we can get things ironed out and be strong on Wednesday night.”

Willie Croft Racing would like to thank Holey Smokes BBQ, ButlerBuilt , Brown and Miller, FK Rod Ends, Factory Kahne, Schoenfeld, Team Simpson, Stilo, Smith Precision Products, Kaeding Performance, AL Drivelines, XYZ, Vortex Wings, Amerikote, DoTerra and GUTS for their support in 2019.

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Races-43, Wins-0, Top 5’s-9, Top 10’s-19.

ON TAP: Willie Croft will be at Placerville Speedway on Wednesday night.

Platinum Cup Not Kind to Andy Gregg

PETERSEN MEDIA: Taking part in the 360 portion of the 66th Annual Gold Cup Race of Champions that was billed ‘The Platinum Cup’, Andy Gregg and the BrownEagle Racing team didn’t quite have the two nights they had in mind.

“We had been pretty good at Silver Dollar Speedway during our first two starts together, so we were hoping to keep that going last week, but was just kind of an average couple of nights instead.”

Timing in 11th quickest in his qualifying group, Andy Gregg would charge from his third row heat race starting position to pick up a third place finish and transfer into the 30-lap feature event.

Lining up ninth in the feature, Gregg would quickly jump to seventh, as he appeared to have a very good car underneath him. Working around the immaculate racing surface, Gregg would run into trouble on the seventh lap and it would bring his night to an early end.

Thursday night, Gregg and the team returned to the Speedway for their final night of racing for the week. Timing in seventh fastest in time trials on the very slick racing surface, Gregg’s sixth place finish in his heat forced him into the ‘B’.

Lining up sixth in the ‘B’, Gregg would have to work extremely hard to make headway with passing tough. Able to steal the final transfer position, the Diamond Springs, CA driver would line up 24th on the starting grid for the 30-lap feature event.

Getting a couple of positions early, Gregg would soon have to settle into the rubber as it went down quickly. Picking up a couple of free spots over the course of the race, he would end the night, and the week, with a 16th place finish.

“I missed the set up and it really hurt us,” Gregg said. “It was a tough surface to put yourself behind on, but we still had fun, and I am still appreciative of the opportunity.”

Andy would like to thank GUTS, Capitol ACE Hardware, Crane Inspection Agency, Sierra Ice, CTL Forest Management, Nail It Roofing, ARP Enterprises, Ervin Sales, Triple X, Wilwood, FK Shocks, FK Rod Ends, K&N, King Racing Products, BR Motorsports, Amerikote, Pony Express Service, Eagle Grit, and MF Inc. for their support in 2019.

Lebanon, OR Podium Highlights Hard Fought Week for Ian Madsen

PETERSEN MEDIA- Competing in Oregon and California last week, Ian Madsen’s third place finish in Oregon would highlight his week, though the team’s results at Gold Cup weren’t indicative to how strong they were.

“We were really fast all week long,” Madsen said. “We were on the podium on Wednesday night, and I really think we had a podium car on Friday and Saturday but we just had a couple of early incidents that set us back.”

Timing in fourth fastest at Willamette Speedway in Lebanon, OR on Wednesday night, Madsen would pick up a third place finish in heat race action. Again, using the low car count format, a second place finish in the qualifier would move him into the Dash.

Starting and finishing sixth in the Dash, Madsen would take the green flag from the third row for the 30-lap feature event. On a heavy and rough surface after rains in the area, Madsen would tip toe around the tricky stuff as he found him way in third.

Holding off Donny Schatz as he chased after Gravel, Madsen would take the checkered flag in third as the series then moved towards California.

Kicking the Gold Cup Race of Champions off on Friday night, Madsen would time in fourth quickest aboard the Logan Contractors Supply, Inc./Aspen Aire/Royal Flooring entry before racing to the heat race win.

Continuing his run of ‘good’ draws in the Dash draw, the five pill lined the St. Marys, NSW pilot up in the third row of the sixth lap shoot out as he would finish fifth.

Battling hard inside the Top-5 when the race came to life, an extended green flag run would actually see Madsen endure some contact to his nose wing, which changed his car drastically.

Trying everything he could to adjust his lines to keep his machine near the front, Madsen would close Friday night out with a 10th place finish.

Back in action for the Gold Cup finale on Saturday, Madsen would time in seventh fastest before picking up a fourth place finish in his heat race.

Lining up 10th for the feature event, Madsen would work his way forward as he got up into the 7th position. Getting into seventh, lap 11 contact would result in front end damage for Madsen and he would be on the hook and headed back to the work area.

With a lot of helping hands, Madsen would make the call with a battered car. From the back of the pack, a frustrated Madsen would carve his way forward and get back up to the Top-10 as he would close his weekend out with a ninth place finish.

“We really had good speed both nights, and it is a bummer we didn’t really finish where our team deserved to,” Madsen added. “We will get back to work this week and try again in Placerville, CA, Stockton, CA, and Calistoga, CA.”

Ian and his KCP Racing team would like to thank Logan Contractors Supply Inc., Aspen Aire, Royal Flooring, Bobcat, Kline Electric, Ted’s Body Shop, Team Excavating, Greenland Homes, American Express, TammyHeckart.com, Quality Traffic Control, BergenKDV, P1 Race Wear, and BK Racing Titanium for their support this season.

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-62, Wins-1, Top-5’s- 11, Top 10’s-32

Kyle Hirst Finishes 5th with C&M Motorsports One Night After Hard Charge to 12th

PETERSEN MEDIA- Climbing back aboard the C&M Motorsports entry for the Wednesday and Thursday 360ci shows during the 66th Annual Gold Cup Race of Champions, Kyle Hirst would rally from last in the ‘B’ to finish 12th in the Wednesday night ‘A’, before capping the week with a fifth place finish on Thursday.

“I have to thank Cody and Mandi for the chance to race at what is my home track now,” Kyle Hirst said. “We had some issues on Wednesday night, and I just have to thank everyone who came over and helped us thrash and get us into the ‘A’.”

Wednesday night got off to a great start for Hirst and company as the Paradise, CA driver time the Moorefield Construction, Inc./PT Shocks/Swartz Diesel Alturas Tires backed No. 7c entry in third fastest in his time trial group.

Lining up on the front row of his heat race, Hirst would jump out to the lead and quickly pulled out to a sizeable lead, but would slow in the infield and the race would be on in the pit area.

Thrashing, and trouble shooting through heat races and the ‘C’, C&M Motorsports would just narrowly make the call for the semi where he would end up starting last on the grid after reporting so late and giving up his front row starting spot.

Putting on a show from the semi, Hirst would bob and weave his way around the ¼ mile oval as he would get up to the fourth and final transfer position and make his way into the 30-lap feature event.

Gridding the field from last in the ‘A’, a very racy surface would see Hirst continue to work his way forward. Inching towards the Top-10, KH would get up to 12th by the time the checkered flag flew.

Returning to the track on Thursday night, slick conditions would greet the field on this night and Hirst would again time in well as he would end up fifth on the speed chart.

Lining up in the second row of his heat race, Hirst would give chase to young Kyle Offill and Shane Hopkins who duked it out in front of him. Getting by Hopkins late, Hirst’s second place finish moved him into the feature event where he would roll off the starting grid from 10th.

On a very slick surface, tire’s would be an issue as the 40-lap race would actually be shortened to 30-laps with rubber going down.

Making some quick moves early, Hirst would jump to eighth on the first lap, and had worked his way up to fifth by the ninth circuit. Looking very good, rubber would start to go down on the speedway and passing would slow up. Getting pushed back to sixth for a few laps after the race’s halfway point, Hirst would work back up to fifth with five laps to go, and close his Gold Cup out with a fifth place finish.

“Really happy I was able to get back in the No. 7c car again, and again cannot thanks Cody and Mandi enough for continuing to field a car and support all of these races,” Hirst said.

The C&M Motorsports team would like to thank Moorefield Construction, Inc., PT Shocks, Swartz Diesel, Alturas Tires, and all of their product sponsors for their continued support.

ON TAP: The C&M Motorsports team will get right back to racing as they will be at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night with Steven Tiner behind the wheel.

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-25, Wins-1, Top 5’s-13, Top 10’s-21.

Tanner Carrick Scores Two Illinois Podiums

PETERSEN MEDIA: Putting the disappointment of not getting out of the BC39 ‘B’ on Thursday night, Tanner Carrick put together a very good weekend in Illinois that saw him charge from 12th to finish second on Friday and a third place run on Saturday.”

“It was a really good weekend for the team, a lot of fun,” Tanner Carrick said. “We had a fast car and we were in the hunt both nights.”

After finishing fifth in his heat race, Carrick would move into the feature event where he found himself back in the 12th starting position. On a racy Jacksonville Speedway surface, Carrick thrilled the crowd as he was able to make some great moves through traffic.

Picking off cars at will, Carrick would march into the Top-5, as he looked for more. Carving his way through some tough competitors, the Lincoln, CA driver capped a great drive as he earned a second place finish.

Looking to continue to his momentum into Saturday night, the scene shifted to Spoon River Speedway in Canton, IL. By way of his heat race win from the fourth starting spot, Carrick put his KKM entry on the pole of the 30-lap feature event.

Slipping back to second briefly, Carrick would get his machine ripping on the cushion as he jumped into the race lead and brought KKM teammate, Logan Seavey into second as the duo would begin to wage war on each other.

As Carrick fought back and forth with Seavey, Tyler Thomas actually got by both of them and Carrick found himself in second when the caution flag put a pin in the excitement.

With Seavey able to sneak by on the restart, Carrick would hold down the third spot where he would go on to finish and close out his weekend.

“Really a fun couple of nights of racing,” Carrick said. “Thanks to everyone that makes all of this possible, and to the guys who give us fast cars.”

Tanner Carrick and the Keith Kunz Motorsports team would like to thank Craftsman, CVC, TRD, Spike Chassis, Cemex, Arai, and Shell Shock for their support.

2019 BY THE NUMBERS- Starts-41, Wins-1, Top 5’s-8, Top 10’s-21

Huge Week for Daryn Pittman and Roth Motorsports Culminates with Gold Cup Race of Champions Win

PETERSEN MEDIA- A busy week of racing out West started with Daryn Pittman picking up a win on Monday night in Elma, WA and ended with Pittman scoring his second career Gold Cup Race of Champions win on Saturday in Chico, CA.

“To win the biggest race in California for Dennis and Teresa Roth is pretty awesome,” Daryn Pittman said. “Great week for our team, to get two World of Outlaws wins is really good, and we will try and have another big week.”

After a frustrating end to Friday night, Pittman and team came out strong on Saturday as the Owasso, OK driver timed the Roth Enterprises/Jason, Tara, and Cole Roth Cattle Co./HR Livestock Transportation backed No. 83 machine in fourth fastest in time trials.

Picking up a win in his heat race, Pittman moved into the Dash where the one pill put him on the pole. Leading all six laps, Pittman looked to finish off his strong night by claiming his second Gold Cup crown, but still had 40 hard laps to get through.

On a racy surface, Pittman jumped out to an early lead as he paced the field. David Gravel would close on him, and actually used a restart to get by the leader only to see the caution negate his move.

When the action resumed, Pittman continued to flex his muscle as he led the way but behind him Brad Sweet and Logan Schuchart were coming to life.

With Brad Sweet able to make a big for the lead, Pittman was able to counter the move and pull away. In traffic, things were getting interesting but a yellow with three laps to go would give DP open track.

Not to be denied on this night, Pittman was flawless as he picked up the win at The Gold Cup Race of Champions.

Back on Monday when the week started, Pittman would time in second fastest at Gray’s Harbor Raceway in Elma, WA before picking up a heat race win and a second place finish in the Dash.

Starting alongside Shane Stewart in the feature event, the Oklahoma natives jockeyed for the lead during the opening three laps before Pittman was able to clear him start to pull away.

Getting a little out of shape in turn two just prior to the race’s halfway point, Stewart would close back in but Pittman still kept the top spot.

With Stewart getting up next to Pittman, the caution would fly and give the leaders open track.

Another strong restart saw Pittman pull away, and behind him Carson Macedo would jump into second and chase after DP. A lap 19 caution saw Macedo and Pittman race side by side for the lead, but a patient Pittman would win out as he kept the lead and race to the victory.

“Monday night I told myself I wasn’t going to the inside and losing another one like I did a few months back,” Pittman said. “We were good, Carson Macedo did scare the crap out of me, but it worked out and felt really good to get back to Outlaw victory lane. Thanks again to Dennis and Teresa Roth for sticking with us and giving us the tools we need, and to my guys for working so hard for me.”

The Roth Motorsports team would like to thank Roth Enterprises, Jason, Tara, and Cole Roth Cattle Co., HR Livestock Transportation, Roth Investments, FK Rod Ends, Weld Wheels, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, Kent Performance, Kaeding Performance, Smith Titanium, Wicked Cushion, and Team Simpson for their support in 2019.

12 Wins and Counting for Nienhiser

PETERSEN MEDIA: Paul Nienhiser continued his winning ways over the weekend as he returned to victory lane at Jacksonville Speedway on Friday night before picking up a second place finish on Saturday night at Spoon River Speedway.

“It was a really good points weekend for our team with MOWA,” Nienhiser said. “We extended our lead with just two more races left so hopefully we can continue to rack up wins and pull this off.”

Amidst a big year at Jacksonville Speedway, Nienhiser got Friday night underway by lining up fifth in his heat race. Held up early by a driver making his car a tick wide, Nienhiser would use a restart to work his way up a second place finish and put himself second in points for the night.

Pulling the three in the redraw, the Chapin, IL driver lined the CAM2 Blue Blood Racing Oil/Mason Sound/Innovative Design machine up in the second row of the feature event.

The race’s initial start saw cars at the back of the field get together and bring out the red, and unfortunately Nienhiser would endure some nose wing damage trying to get his car slowed up.

No worse for wear, the next start saw Nienhiser slide into the race lead and quickly start to gap the field. Admitting to not pushing his car too hard, Nienhiser would be surprised by Parker Price-Miller tracking him down and sliding up in front of him.

Getting his elbows up Nienhiser would get back to work as they ran through traffic. A late restart saw the lead duo break away from pack, and again in traffic, Nienhiser would make a bold move on the fence that saw him shoot back to the lead an go on to win the race.

Traveling to Spoon River on Saturday night, Nienhiser would take advantage of a prime front row starting position in his heat race and earn the victory.

Pulling the five pill in the redraw, Nienhiser made some changes to his car for the slick hoping to stumble on something to add to his notebook. With the track no blowing off as much as he thought, Nienhiser would opt to use the moisture that was on the bottom of speedway opposed to working the cushion.

Racing his way into second via the bottom, Nienhiser would then let it all hang out on the curb as he chased after Logan Seavey. Running through heavy traffic, Nienhiser would be unable to get to him he ran second in a race that was shortened five laps due to rain.

“I am really happy with how things went over the weekend,” Nienhiser said. “We have been so good at Jacksonville all year long, and I can’t wait to see how we can stack up with the World of Outlaws when they return in a couple of weeks. At Spoon River, looking back I wish I would have left my car alone but it wasn’t bad by any means.”

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.

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Races-40, Wins-12, Top 5’s-20, Top 10’s-23

Austin Liggett Shines at Merced Speedway with USAC/CRA Series

PETERSEN MEDIA: Fresh off of an impressive couple of nights at Calistoga Speedway, Austin Liggett rejoined USAC/CRA Sprint Week in Merced Speedway on Friday night and picked up his eighth win of the season.

“The track was awesome all night, and my dad had us so good from the start of the night to the end of the night,” Liggett said. “It feels great to get a win after being so close at the ‘Louie’.”

With 20 cars checked in at Merced Speedway for the series’ first ever visit, Liggett used his experience from a couple of Midget starts there earlier in the year to his advantage as he timed the Excel Environmental Services/Liggett Trucking/Tool Technology machine in second fastest in time trials.

Lining up sixth in his heat race, Liggett continued to flex his muscles as the Tracy, CA driver forged his way to finish second as he established himself as a heavy favorite heading into the feature.

Taking the green flag from the fifth starting position, Liggett quickly worked his way into second and flanked Jake Swanson. Taking advantage of a clean track on a restart, Liggett would make a big move to overtake the top spot and from this point he would check out.

Pulling away, Liggett would get through traffic with ease as he would slice and dice his way through the back of the field lapping up to 10th place. In doing this he gave himself quite a buffer as he would have a straightaway advantage over his closest competitor.

Not to be denied on this night, Liggett would go on to win emphatically, as it marked his eighth triumph of the season.

“We had so many options on the track, and it really made for a fun race,” Liggett said. “Again, big thanks to my Dad, my Mom, Landon, and Britton for working so well and giving us a winning car.”

Austin Liggett Racing would like to thank Excel Environmental Services, Liggett Trucking, Tool Technology, Hurst Fabrications, Maxwell Industries, Shine Photography, and Morris Motorsports for their support.

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Races-26, Wins-8, Top 5’s-17, Top 10’s-21

Andy Forsberg Wins a Thriller to Open Gold Cup Race of Champions

PETERSEN MEDIA- With all eyes on Chico, CA over the last week for the 66th Annual Gold Cup Race of Champions, Andy Forsberg helped get the buzz going as he won an absolute thriller on Wednesday night in a race that came down to the wire with Kalib Henry.

“The last couple of times out with F&F Racing it had been kind of rough, to so kick Gold Cup off with a really exciting Wednesday night win was awesome,” Andy Forsberg said.

On a wet surface early in the night, Forsberg would be the first car out for time trials, and though it hurt him a bit he would still time in seventh quickest in his group.

With a little luck on his side, Forsberg would end up with a second place finish in his heat race and move into the Dash. Going from eighth to fifth, the Auburn, CA driver lined up in the third row of the 30-lap feature event.

When the feature event rolled around, the track was in great shape for the feature event, and as things went green Forsberg made a nice move to jump into third aboard the Econo Lube-n-Tune and Brakes/Geico Local Office/PitStopUSA entry.

Moving into second on the fourth lap, Forsberg would continue to roll the bottom to perfection as he moved into the race lead on lap six as he worked under Rico Abreu.

Going back and forth with Abreu, Forsberg would clear him on the 10th lap and break away but then felt pressure from Henry who moved into the top spot on the 13th lap.

Staying true to the bottom, Forsberg would get the lead back on the 16th lap, only to have Henry get back by with eighth to go, as they thrilled the crowd with their battle.

Running side by side the last 5 laps, it would be Forsberg getting the advantage by a slim margin to win an absolute thriller.

Locking into the Thursday night Dash by way of his finish on Wednesday, slick and abrasive conditions would take over the surface on this night with high temperatures and wind lingering through the day.

Making some headway in the Dash, Forsberg would advance a few positions as his fourth place finish put him in the second row for the feature event.

Running third in the opener laps on the slick surface, some good hard racing would see Forsberg slip back to sixth after mixing it up. Back in sixth, rubber would become a big issue and Forsberg would have to go into conservation mode to keep his tires.

He would do all he could as he took the checkered with a sixth place finish to close out F&F Racing’s week.

“It was great to get a win to kick things off, and it was a fun few days all around,” Forsberg said. “Thanks to my guys for all of their work, and hopefully we can pull this Placerville title off on Saturday.”

F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg would like to thank Econo Lube-n-Tune and Brakes, Geico Local Office, PitStopUSA, Lucas Oil, Pacific Highway Rentals, Autism Awareness, FVP, and CRV Carbon Solutions for their support in 2019.

ON TAP: F&F Racing and Andy Forsberg will be back in action on Saturday night at Placerville Speedway for the track’s 2019 Championship Finale.

Smoke 12th during Port Royal’s Night Before The Tuscarora 50

Dates: Friday and Saturday, September 6th & 7th Event: 52nd Annual Tuscarora 50 Series: Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 Track: Port Royal Speedway (Port Royal, Pennsylvania.) Tony Stewart A-Main Finishes (Start): Friday: 12th (3rd) Saturday: 22nd (22nd)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (September 9, 2019) - Growing into one of the premier sprint car events on the east coast, and quite possibly the United States, ‘Smoke’ Tony Stewart spent the recent weekend participating in Port Royal Speedway’s annual Tuscarora 50; a 50-lap showstopper featuring the All Star Circuit of Champions, as well as the world-famous Pennsylvania Posse, with a top prize equalling $52,000.

Despite an overall weekend outcome that lacked personal expectations, Tony Stewart’s trip to the Port Royal ‘Speed Palace’ did show some promise, ultimately qualifying for the 50-lap finale on Saturday night after transferring through the evening’s B-Main. There were over 50 cars in attendance with Stewart finishing 22nd during the evening’s feature.

Technically kicking-off his weekend at Port Royal Speedway with the $5,000-to-win ‘Night Before The Tuscarora 50’ preliminary, Smoke finished 12th during the 30-lap feature on Friday, September 6, and earned the right to start third after finishing in the exact same position during the evening’s dash. Unfortunately, that is not where the Columbus, Indiana-native stayed.

“Despite our outcome, the Tuscarora 50 is a premier event and we were thrilled to be a part of it,” Tony Stewart said, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Rush Truck Centers/Toco Warranty/Ford Performance/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/Absolute Automation & Security/No. 14 sprint car. “Despite things not turning out how we wanted them to, we had a great trip to Pennsylvania. It’s amazing to see what Steve and his crew have been able to do at Port Royal over the last few seasons. I’m already excited for the opportunity to return.”

Upcoming plans for Tony Stewart remain uncertain. Fans should keep in tune with social media for continuing updates regarding Smoke’s upcoming agenda.

Brian Brown Hustles to Runner-Up Result at Bedford and Third-Place Showing at Port Royal

Inside Line Promotions - PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Sept. 9, 2019) - Brian Brown recorded back-to-back podium finishes during Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions competition in Pennsylvania last weekend.

Sept. 5 - Bedford Speedway in Bedford, Pa. - Qualifying: 2; Heat race: 4 (4); Dash: 2 (1); Feature: 2 (2).

"We took off in the feature and Reutzel was pretty good in open air," Brown said. "We found a different line that was working pretty good, but we had trouble with a lapped car there. We got by them and got back to Reutzel and then the yellow came out. In clean air he had an opportunity to set sail and we had to settle for second. Overall, it was a good night for us."

Sept. 6 - Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pa. - Qualifying: 5; Heat race: 1 (4); Dash: 4 (3); Feature: 3 (7).

"That was probably the best we've ever been at Port Royal in the heat race," Brown said. "We tried something in the dash and got back off base a little. In the feature I could maneuver all over. I felt at one point I had the fastest car on the track. Track position just didn't work out. I was able to get to third and almost passed Trey Starks for second on a restart. I didn't get that done and got to racing with Anthony Macri a little. I was able to get him back and settle in for a podium. That was a very, very good night for us. Any time you can go to Central Pennsylvania and get a podium out of 50-plus cars it's a great night."

Sept. 7 - Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pa. - Qualifying: 7; Heat race: 5 (4); B Main: 2 (2); Feature: 14 (20).

"Our goal was to go in there and set quick time," Brown said. "That allows you to somewhat control your destiny because the format was a little different. You basically had to win the heat. I had a game plan, but I didn't get going. By the time I got into turn one I was in fifth. We had to run the B Main, which isn't all bad because it gives you another opportunity on the track. With the track slowing down as much as it did we were just off a little bit. We didn't really know why. In the B Main we were a little better and we went for broke in the feature. We went with what we'd go with if we were starting up front going for the win. We were just too tight in traffic. Overall I'm proud of Chad, Nate and dad. They did a good job all week long."

UP NEXT - Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., and Saturday at Selinsgrove Speedway in Selinsgrove, Pa., for the Jim Nace Memorial 37th annual National Open presented by Red Robin

"Any time we can get more laps at Williams Grove it's beneficial to learn," Brown said. "Selinsgrove is a big race for our race team. Charlie Garrett and Jim Nace were really good friends. We were lucky to win the race in 2017 and we ran third last year. The ultimate goal is to win, especially on Saturday when the money is on the line. We know there will be a lot of talented drivers so we'll have to be on our game."

Dominic Scelzi Passes 21 Cars During Main Events at Silver Dollar Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - CHICO, Calif. (Sept. 9, 2019) - Dominic Scelzi made progress throughout each of four straight nights of sprint car competition at Silver Dollar Speedway last week.

Scelzi guided his family owned team to a top five on Wednesday and he was in contention to duplicate the performance the ensuing night before a flat tire resulted in a DNF. The team then maneuvered from 17th to 12 th on Friday and from 20th to 13th on Saturday during World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series events.

"That's a positive to move forward like we did, but if you want to win World of Outlaws races and compete to win you have to qualify near the front," he said. "When you don't do that you take yourself out of contention. I know we can race and I feel confident in our program. We just needed to qualify better to be in the best position."

The action began on Wednesday with Scelzi qualifying fifth quickest in his group.

"We were the second-to-last car out in our group and we ended up fifth, which wasn't terrible," he said. "It started us on the inside row in the heat race and it was completely greasy down on the bottom so we fell to fifth right away. I was lucky to get back to fourth and that started us 13 th in the main event. The track slicked off and I felt really racy. We drove up to fourth. I wish it was a 40-lap race because I think we were racing pretty well."

The fourth-place finish locked Scelzi into the dash on Thursday. Unfortunately, he drew the second-highest number to start seventh. Scelzi was credited with an eighth-place result that lined him up on the outside of the fourth row for the main event.

"We went eighth to fourth in six or seven laps," he said. "The track became full rubber by Lap 15. We ended up slicing a tire. There was about six laps to go when it cut so that night ended in a DNF."

Scelzi returned to the quarter-mile oval on Friday.

"There were massive, foot-tall craters on the track," he said. "It was like we were qualifying on the moon. I didn't qualify very good, but I ran from ninth to sixth in the heat to lock into the main event. In the feature we were really good, but the track was so locked down it was extremely hard to pass."

Scelzi gained five positions to finish 12th. He wrapped up the weekend on Saturday with similar circumstances of rebounding from qualifying to transfer through the B Main and rally from 20th to 13th in the A Main.

"We were ok and passed some race cars, but it was just really hard to pass," he said. "We battled a throttle issue the second half of the race. I was in 16th on the final restart and was able to get up to 13 th by running the bottom."

Scelzi has a trio of World of Outlaws races on tap this week with events on Wednesday at Placerville Speedway in Placerville, Calif., during the 49er Gold Rush Classic presented by Riebes NAPA Auto Parts; on Friday at Stockton Dirt Track in Stockton, Calif., during the NOS Energy Drink Showdown at Stockton; and on Saturday at Calistoga Speedway in Calistoga, Calif., during the Wine Country Outlaw Showdown.

"Placerville isn't my best track in California based on results, but I have had good runs there so I'm excited to see how it goes," he said. "I'm hoping things can fall our way and we can run strong. I'm very excited for Stockton and Calistoga, where we've won races."

Kerry Madsen Garners Top 10 at Bedford During All Star Tripleheader

Inside Line Promotions - PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Sept. 9, 2019) - Kerry Madsen highlighted last weekend's trio of Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions races with a top-10 result.

The KI Crossbows backed Big Game Motorsports driver got off to a strong start with new crew chief Barry Jackson. Madsen qualified seventh quickest overall and second in his group on Friday at Bedford Speedway in Bedford, Pa. A run from third to win a heat race locked the team into the dash, but unfortunately Madsen drew the second-highest number to line up on the inside of the fourth row for the dash. He gained one position to finish sixth before capping the night with a ninth-place run in the main event.

"We made some changes for the A Main and went the wrong way, but it was great to have really great pace early," he said. "It's just a matter of getting the combination right. Realistically we weren't going to just go out and dominate and be perfect every time we hit the track. The pace is there early. It's just a matter of putting it all together."

Madsen enjoyed another fast race car on Friday when he kicked off the first night of the two-day Tuscarora 50 event hosted by Port Royal Speedway by qualifying second quickest out of more than 50 drivers. A fourth-place finish in a heat race locked him into a dash and a third-place run in the dash lined him up on the outside of the third row for the A Main.

"We were running around 10th about halfway when I pulled off with a flat left rear tire," he said.

The weekend wrapped up on Saturday with Madsen qualifying 12th quickest overall and third in his group. He placed second in a heat race to garner the ninth starting position in the main event.

"On Saturday I felt like we had a great car, but we had a mechanical issue right away," he said.

Madsen was unable to finish the race following the early problem.

"It was pretty seamless and we get along well," Madsen said of his new pairing with Jackson. "We seem to be on the same page so there's a lot of potential there. We got some good pace in the car early in the night. We have to keep working to find the pace later in the night when it counts."

The team is scheduled to race this Friday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., and Saturday at Selinsgrove Speedway in Selinsgrove, Pa., during the Jim Nace Memorial 37th annual National Open presented by Red Robin. It will mark Madsen's first start at the track since August 2006.

Wilson Heading to Atomic Speedway This Weekend for All Star Tripleheader

Inside Line Promotions - PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Sept. 9, 2019) - Greg Wilson is excited to return to an Ohio bullring this weekend for a trio of Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions races.

Wilson and his Hercules Tires, DNC Hydraulics, Ohio Logistics and Gear Off Road sponsored team will invade Atomic Speedway in Chillicothe this Thursday through Saturday for the Dean Knittel Memorial.

"I'm looking forward to getting on a track I'm familiar with to make sure we just have a problem with one type of track," he said. "We struggled last weekend. I don't really know why other than we had a lot of the same issues we did at Knoxville."

Last weekend began on Thursday with what appeared to be a promising night at Bedford Speedway in Bedford, Pa., where Wilson advanced from sixth to fourth place in a heat race and was contending for a top 10 in the main event.

"We were decent and battled in a position to run in the top 10," he said. "I had a mechanical failure, which we normally don't have. I was disappointed. It just wasn't meant to be. It was something that happens maybe two or three times in your career. The positive is we were pretty good. Every time we hit the track we were better. Those are the nights you're looking for."

Wilson ventured to Port Royal Speedway on Friday for the first of two nights at the flat, half-mile oval during the famed Tuscarora 50 event.

"The track was awesome, but the feeling we had on Friday was the same as Saturday," he said. "We couldn't get our car to drive off very good. The way we tried to fix it was no good. It was just mediocre all weekend.

"On Friday we missed transferring into the main event by one position out of the heat and the B Main. On Saturday the driver just flat missed it in qualifying. I tried to run around the top and what I needed to do was cut the middle of turns three and four. We battled from there all night. We weren't very good, either. It seems to be that half-mile flat track. When they start losing grip we're normally pretty good, but we're struggling right now. So we're looking forward to heading to Atomic, where we've run pretty well throughout the years."

Wilson enters this weekend ranked sixth in the All Star championship standings.

Schuett Battles Challenging Weekend During MOWA Doubleheader in Illinois

Inside Line Promotions - CANTON, Ill. (Sept. 9, 2019) - Kyle Schuett battled challenges on both nights to post a pair of top-20 finishes with the Built Ford Tough MOWA Sprint Car Series last weekend in Illinois.

Schuett's racing weekend began Friday night at Jacksonville Speedway in Jacksonville, where he charged from eighth to fourth in his heat race to earn the 10th starting position in the A Main.

"I ran into the guy in front of me on the second lap of the feature and bent the right front a bit, which kept the torsion bar from moving freely," he said. "After that the car didn't drive well. I was running around 11 th or 12th when I got into the slick a little bit, looped it and had to restart in the back. After that I just tried to keep my nose clean. I was still able to pass a few more cars and a couple of others dropped out so I finished 12th.

"It was definitely disappointing since we generally do well at Jacksonville. I don't think we had finished outside of the top 10 there before Friday."

Schuett and his crew made repairs to the race car and followed the MOWA Series to its next race on Saturday at Spoon River Speedway, where they started fifth in a heat race.

"I was able to get by the fourth-place car, but by that time the top three were about a straightaway ahead," he said. "I ran down the third-place car, but came up a couple of inches short of passing him at the checkered."

Those inches forced Schuett to start deeper in the A Main. He rolled off 15 th.

"The A Main was single-file around the bottom from the start of the race," he said. "I ran around 13th to 15th for a while in a group of about five cars. Our car was decent, but it wasn't quite good enough to get around the others.

"I eventually got tired of following the others so I decided to try the top with about 10 laps to go. I'm not real good at running the top at a big track and I missed it in one corner and about three guys went by me on the bottom. After that, I just searched around for a way to get back around them and was able to pass one of them and finished 18th. I probably should've just stayed in line and finished where I was, but I wanted to try something different."

Schuett is looking forward to his next race at Jacksonville Speedway on Sept. 25. It will be his first competition with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series.

"I have no idea how we'll fare against the Outlaws," he said. "Our focus will be to run all our laps that night. Our ultimate goal is to make the feature, but our chances for that are slim since we expect a lot of good cars there. One thing we have going for us is that we have a lot of laps at Jacksonville. But it's still only my 14th race in a sprint car and it will just be the fifth time I've run time trials. It will be a challenge, that's for sure."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 6 - Jacksonville Speedway in Jacksonville, Ill. - Heat race: 4 (8); Feature: 12 (10).

Sept. 7 - Spoon River Speedway in Canton, Ill. - Heat race: 4 (5); Feature: 18 (15).

Grosz and Halverson Earn Championships at Jackson Motorplex, Where One More Points Battle is on the Line

Inside Line Promotions - JACKSON, Minn. (Sept. 9, 2019) - Only one event remains on the 2019 schedule at Jackson Motorplex, where two drivers were recently crowned track champions.

Lee Grosz scored the 360 winged sprint car title and Brandon Halverson earned the NSL non-wing sprint cars presented by HitchDoc championship.

Grosz led the division with a trio of feature victories, including winning the season finale. He finished with seven top fives, which also led all 360 winged sprint car drivers.

Jack Dover and Trey Starks finished tied for second in the championship standings - 41 points behind Grosz. Thomas Kennedy and Dusty Zomer were tied for fourth, only five points behind Dover and Starks.

The closest points battle was in the NSL non-wing sprint cars presented by HitchDoc division as Halverson held only a one-point advantage heading into the final points race of the year. However, his fifth top five of the season was enough to give him an 11-point victory. He led all drivers with a trio of wins.

Johnny Parsons III led the way with six top fives to rank second in the championship standings. Alex Schriever rounded out the podium in the standings - 16 points behind Halverson. Jake Kouba finished 48 points out of the top spot and Bryan Roach was fifth in the standings.

There is one division with a points battle ongoing. While Bill Johnson only needs to start feature competition during the season finale to lock up the Heartland Steel RaceSaver sprint cars presented by Wyffels Hybrids, several positions within the top five are still up for grabs. Brandon Bosma ranks second and is only one point ahead of Colin Smith. Ryan Voss is 11 points behind Bosma with Michael Stien fifth in the championship standings - eight points behind Voss.

The final event of the season at Jackson Motorplex is Sept. 20-21 for the Casey's Open Wheel Nationals presented by Sea Foam.

3rd generation Kekich victorious in the return of the Western Penn. Sprint championship at Mercer!! King Sr dominates again in Big Block Modifieds, Krummert wins 10th career in FASTRAK Modifieds, Knepper wins 10th in Mod Lites and Frantz wins first at Mercer in Mini Stocks.

By Jim Balentine Jr

On a gorgeous late summer Saturday Michael’s Mercer Raceway ran the 1st end of summer shootout with a good crowd and exciting racing on the track as businesses and fans donated extra money to the payoffs making this a successful event. The former annual Western Pennsylvania Sprint Championship that began in 1966 made its return to Mercer along with the Chuck Marsh Memorial as Adam Kekich picked up the $2600 first place money. The Big Block Modifeds ran for $2000 to win with 2019 track champion Rex King Sr taking the checkers. Garrett Krummert picked up his 9th career Mercer FASTRAK Modified win worth $1500. Alan Knepper scored his 10th career Mercer Mod Lite feature worth $700, and Josh Frantz won the biggest Mini Stock race in Mercer history capturing $900!!!

The annual Western Pennsylvania Sprint Championship that began in 1966 with Ralph Quarterson winning the 1st 4, and wins by hall of famers Jan Opperman, Lynn Paxton, Kenny Weld, Bobby Allen and Lou Blaney made its return to Mercer along with the Chuck Marsh Memorial where the family of Chuck Marsh donated $500 to 1st place and Bud Miller the founder of the All Star Sprints donated $100 also to 1st place making the win worth $2600. 20 high quality 410 sprint cars were pitside with drivers coming from the Wayne County and Fremont region to battle the West Pa contingent. Young and upcoming driver Henry Malcuit, also from a rich racing family started on the pole and was heading to possibly his 1st ever feature win after winning his heat and having quick time in hot laps, leading the way while 4th starting Adam Kekich followed Malcuit for the first half of the race. Malcuit kept Kekich at bay running low while Kekich kept trying the high side but then went low entering lapped traffic on lap 9 taking the lead away from Malcuit. Kekich drove away from the field winning by 6.9 seconds in the non stop 25 lapper. “I have to thank god for everything, all my guys who get this car out here..I didn’t know I had a 7 second lead I just kept running it..my grandpa finished 5th? (in this race in 1977) that’s pretty awesome for me finally outdo him at something. I looked up to him for everything in my life, and he was the greatest guy in the world and this is awesome!!! I’ve had some wins here and we always came up short in my grandpa’s memorial race..it’s always nice to win at home, all these fans here this is awesome!!! Keep this place open, thanks to the Michael’s family for opening this place up.”
Malcuit did a masterful job finishing second while Jimmy Morris was third, Dan Kuriger fourth, and Brandon Spithaler fifth. Both Kuriger and Spithaler were the hard chargers of the race and split the $150 donated by Ron’s lawn service. Lee Jacobs earned the extra $100 donation from Pastor Bill Beck for finishing seventh. Jack Sodeman and Brandon Matus won the sprint heats.

In the Big Block Modifieds 2019 track champion and 17 time winner at Mercer Rex King Sr. started on the pole and led the entire distance to pick up his third win of the season and 18th overall. It was not easy as King had to contend to veteran Kevin Hoffman as Hoffman showed his nose under King throughout the race. Rex King Jr. was second early on in the race but was involved in a tangle in turn 4 on lap 15 ending his night. Hoffman inherited second and kept King Sr. at bay until the elder King eventually checked out later in the event winning by 3.7 seconds. “That was pretty good.. Kevin and Rick were back there..track was good cant ask for much better. My birthday is Tuesday and ill be 54!!! I need to thank everyone in my crew and Russell gets the car ready and all I do is drive it. I’ve always liked this place and I’ll be here as long as the Michael’s family has it” Hoffman did a great job settling for second, Garrett Krummert doing double duty finished third from his seventh starting position, earning the $125 hard charger award from JADCO manufacturing. Will Thomas was fourth and Skip Moore was fifth. Heat winners were Kevin Hoffman and Rex king jr.

Garrett Krummert rebounded from his third place finish in the Big Blocks to win his tenth career Mercer FASTRAK Modified feature which was worth $1500 with the extra $500 donated by Myers garage. The race was plagued by numerous cautions and a red flag for a violent barrel roll by Don Blaney down the backchute as he landed on the guardrail and the catch fence. Despite the car being destroyed Blaney emerged unhurt. Clayton Deems would lead the first lap until Kevin Hoffman driving the Ritchey 17 took over on lap 2. Krummert would overtake Hoffman on a restart on lap 5 and would win the feature by 2.3 seconds. “We were petty good starting 11th... I didn't know what was going to happen but it ended up good. We will be back again next year Jerry Schaffer (car owner) gives up good equipment and I enjoy it so we will be back!” Hoffman settled for second while veteran Eric Gabany driving the Schaffer 4S moved up through the field to finish third and Brian Sadler was fouth and Blaze Myers fifth. Blaze Myers and Brian Schaffer won the heats.

In the $900 to win Mini stock 15 lapper with first place money being donated by Mathieson racing /Fred Adams garage, Joe Romanko, Jrs garage, and Burk Construction 24 cars started the wild and wooly feature. Josh Frantz started 5th and battled with relative Zach Frantz and 10 time winner Shane Shook for the lead swiping it back and forth. Coming down for the white flag J. Frantz went low with Shook going high as a lapped car was right in the middle. Frantz went between the lapped car and Shook and coming arounf turn 4 for the checkerd Frantz went high allowing Shook to catch up and Frantz held of Shook bt a tire to win the $900, his first ever win at Mercer.“that last lap got a little hairy but it worked out in my favor. I was slowing down for that lapped car because I didnt know where Shook was going to be and I knew he was there. It’s awesome to win the $900!!! Shook and Zach Frantz were later disqualified for parts infractions so Randy Ealy finished 2nd,Joe Romanko 3rd ,Bill Fuchs 4th and Willie Aley 5th. Heat winners were Willie Aley, Zach Frantz, and Shane Shook.

The Mod Lite feature worth $700 with $100 donated by the Womer family began with winner Alan Knepper jumping into the lead at the start but then the race was red flagged when Bob Boano hit the outside concrete wall hard on the frontstretch. Bob was ok in the crash. Knepper restarted and held off 5 time winner Vivian Jones to win his first at Mercer since May 11 by 2 seconds and his 10th career Mercer checkered. “I knew Vivian and Jeff Teeters would be tough competition tonight, We’ve been trying to hit the bigger races and driving 3-4 hours away so it feels good to win close to home!” Jones would end up 2nd, with Jeff Teeters 3rd, Shane Webb 4th and Roman Jones 5th. Jacob Isenhart picked up an extra $100 from Bath Pro renovations for being the last car running at the end. Mod lite heat winners were Alan Knepper and Jeff Teeters.Walter Breeding donated 1 Hoosier tire to the 1st,and 5th place finisher and 2 tires to 10th and last place.

Ed Michaels and the staff at Mercer would like to thank al lthe drivers, crews, and fans for supporting this quickly put together show and all the businesses and persons who donated money and products to the racers.

NGRAND FORKS, N.D. (September 6, 2019) – Wade Nygaard picked up career win No. 278 over Labor Day weekend with his Buffalo Wild Wings NOSA Sprint Car victory at Buffalo River Race Park in Glyndon, Minn.

It took a last lap pass on Jade Hastings to secure the lead and take the win.

“That was a super fun race. In the beginning, we weren’t very fast. I just had to calm down and figure out where my car was working the best. I think the faster lane was actually where Jade was running. When you’re in second you just have to move around and try something. I could have run in his line around the bottom, but I just would have followed him to the finish and he wasn’t going to make a mistake,” said Nygaard.

The pass for the lead got tight out of turn two as Hastings and Nygaard fought for the same real estate on the high side of the speedway. Nygaard’s momentum was the difference as he squeezed by Hastings to take the lead down the back stretch.

“I tried extra hard on that last lap and it could have went either way. I could have slid off the top and he could have kept going or it could have worked out the way it did. Luckily it worked out in my favor,” he said.

The win for Nygaard was his fourth with the NOSA Sprints at BRRP.

On Friday night at River Cities Speedway, Nygaard made his non-wing Sprint Car debut with the Northern Renegade Sprint Series. Making his first-ever laps without a set of wings, Nygaard quickly adapted to the different feel. Nygaard started last night in his heat, but sliced his way through the field to claim the heat win.

“That was an absolute blast. I can’t wait to do it again if possible somewhere, sometime. The only way I can explain it is if you’ve ever been in an open parking lot with a little bit of snow and you’re just sliding around. It feels like the same thing. There is just no traction whatsoever. Just slide around and have fun. It’s great.”

In NOSA competition on Friday night, Nygaard took the checkers in fifth. Nygaard did not run the non-wing feature.

Next up, Nygaard and the Auto Finance Super Center team returns to action tonight at River Cities Speedway for the NOSA event as a part of the John Seitz Memorial. On Saturday, the team will head to Cedar Lake Speedway to run with the Midwest Power Series.

Wade and the entire crew would like to thank their great sponsors for their continued support!

Carney Goes North after Hard Charging LOS 360 Nationals Effort

Lonnie Wheatley, EL PASO, Texas (September 5, 2019) – John Carney II is in or a change of pace this weekend after a rousing run in Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour competition from deep in the pack in Sunday night’s Lake Ozark Speedway 360 Nationals finale.

Maintaining his position among the top five in ASCS National Tour points with a run from 16th to fourth, Carney is in Canada this weekend for competition at Edmonton’s Castrol Raceway aboard the Arizona-owned the Kaylene and Alan Verville-owned No. 01 Sprint Car.

“I’ve never been up here before, so it should be something different for sure,” Carney says. “It looks like it should be a pretty racy place, I’m looking forward to it.”

Carney races Friday night atop the 3/8-mile clay oval.

The El Paso native makes his first Canada start after a pair of nights in Missouri at Lake Ozark Speedway last Saturday and Sunday as well as his first trip to West Burlington, Iowa’s 34 Raceway on Friday.

Carney kicked off the weekend triple with a tenth-place run at 34 Raceway. Then, following a challenging Saturday night, Carney finished out the weekend in strong form by rallying from 16th to fourth.

Saturday presented challenges that resulted in 16th-place finish aboard the Sander Construction/South Plains Auto Transport/Mesilla Valley Transportation No. J2 Sprint Car.

“We had a lot of unusual things happen,” Carney recalls. “The track was really heavy which made it tough, then the nose wing mounts broke, a sideboard came off, we cut a left front tire, it was just a different kind of night.”

Carney bounced back on Sunday with a Hard Charger effort that netted a top-five finish.

“We went 16th to fourth in a green-to-checkered race,” Carney says. “It’s good to know we have a car that can compete, we just had some unusual failures the first night at Lake Ozark.”

While Carney takes in a night of Canadian action, his next Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour action will take place on September 19-21 at Wheatland, Missouri’s Lucas Oil Speedway at the Hockett/McMillin Memorial.

John Carney Racing is made possible by the support of invaluable partners including Danny Sander Construction, South Plains Auto Transport, Mesilla Valley Transportation, Jackson Compaction, Vado Speedway Park, CSR Garage, Momentum Racing Suspensions, Performance Plus, Performance Motor Coach, Raider Graphix, MSD Ignition, Joe Hunt Magnetos and Bell Helmets.

Quick Stats: 29 Races, 3 Wins, 15 top-fives, 19 top-tens.

Next Up: Castrol Raceway in Edmonton, ALB, Canada on Friday.

Bellm Banks Pair of Lucas Oil ASCS Top Tens at LOS 360 Nationals

Lonnie Wheatley, NIXA, Mo. (September 6, 2019) – With nearly 50 cars on hand each night, Kyle Bellm battled to a pair of top ten Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour feature finishes in last weekend’s Lake Ozark Speedway 360 Nationals in Eldon, MO.

And the Nixa, MO, racer was faced with vastly different surfaces on each night. One thing that stayed consistent however, was the draw.

“We drew dead last both nights, which makes about seven or eight nights in a row so at least we’re consistent,” Bellm says.

The Saturday surface was not typical Lake Ozark Speedway.

“It was super heavy,” Bellm says.

After climbing from eighth to sixth in heat race action, Bellm posted a fourth-place finish in his qualifier to land the 13th starting position for the feature.

“We made a few too many changes trying to free it up for the qualifier,” Bellm explains.

Bellm finished out the night by advancing to ninth in the feature event.

“We made it up to seventh at one point, then the car got way too tight towards the end of the race,” Bellm recalls.

Sunday delivered an entirely different track surface.

“It was totally different, it was slicker and really a lot more to our liking,” Bellm explains.

Bellm responded with a run from eighth to second in his heat race and then a fourth-place qualifying race finish to secure the third starting position for the feature.

“The car was perfect in the heat race, that put us in good position for the night,” Bellm says.

Bellm finished out the night with an eighth-place run in the night’s feature event.

“We tightened up a little too much and that cost us some early in the race,” Bellm explains. “Overall, two top tens with nearly 50 cars there was a good weekend. We’re pleased with it, but I felt like we left a little bit on the table.”

With a pair of top-tens in the books, Bellm and the No. 14k team will be back in Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour competition at Lucas Oil Speedway’s Hockett/McMillin Memorial in Wheatland, MO, on September 19-21.

The Kyle Bellm Racing efforts are made possible with support from marketing partners including Greenworks Nursery, Landscapes Awarded, Christian County Collision Repair, Bybee Lawn Care, PPG Automotive Finishes, Colorvision, Schure Built Suspensions, Schaeffers Racing Oil and Valley Park West Retirement Living.

Quick Stats: 27 Races, 1 win, 5 top-fives, 14 top-tens.

Up Next: TBD.

Lindsay Barney Returns To WSS To Finish Second At Coos Bay Speedway; Headed To CGS For Herz Precision Parts Wingless Nationals
By Ben Deatherage
Eagle Creek, Oregon- Lindsay Barney made her long-awaited return to racing after getting sidelined for a brief spell due to engine issues. The Eagle Creek teenager hadn’t been in action since July 20th at Willamette Speedway.
The JAB Motorsports team headed to Coos Bay Speedway on Saturday, August 31st with the Wingless Sprint Series.

“It was so nice to get back to racing and get past all of our motor problems,” commented Lindsay Barney.

She would time in fifth quick at the 3/8-mile dirt oval. In heat race competition Barney managed to win the race. It would set things up for the forty-lap feature.

The early stages of the race had a bit of a scary episode. Lindsay got together with another car battling for position. She ended up suffering from a left front flat tire but kept on the racetrack.

“I thought it would ruin our night, but it didn’t affect how our night ended up. I was able to overcome the problem.”

Despite the handicap, the #57 entry put in a noble effort. When the checkered flag fell, she would be scored in second place. It was her first main event finish since July 13th at Grays Harbor Raceway.

“I really love Coos Bay. It’s a very challenging track, and it changes through the night, and we only get to go there once a year.”

Next, the JAB Motorsports team heads to Cottage Grove Speedway on Friday, September 6th and Saturday, the 7th. It is one of the prestigious events in the Pacific Northwest Non-Wing scene, the Herz Precision Parts Wingless Nationals.

“I’m very excited to get back to Cottage Grove and run two nights there. I think we have a great chance of posting some great finishes.”

Epic Racewear Championship Night To Decide Ohsweken Titles On September 6
 

By Clayton Johns

OHSWEKEN, Ont. (September 5, 2019) – With four month of action in the books, it all comes down to one final night. Ohsweken Speedway will wrap up its 2019 Friday Night Excitement campaign with Epic Racewear Championship Night on Friday, September 6. The championships will be decided on the final points night of the 2019 season in all four Ohsweken weekly divisions, including the Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars, Strickland’s Brantford Chevrolet Crate Sprint Cars, Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks and HRW Automotive Mini Stocks.

In addition, the race will be simulcast live on BOTH Ohsweken’s livestream network beginning at 7:30pm ET and MAVTV Canada’s All North Racing powered by Pinty’s beginning at 9:30pm ET.

The final pre-race Autograph Session and Racer’s Marketplace of the season will take place from 5:30pm to 6:30pm behind the main grandstands. Fans will have the opportunity to purchase driver merchandise and get autographs from their favourite drivers. Admission to the autograph session is free with the purchase of general admission.

Championship Night is also the final opportunity for fans to redeem general admission tickets purchased in support of Kids Race for the Canadian National Autism Foundation night that was originally scheduled for August 16.

Regular adult admission is just $14 while Seniors (65+) and Youths (13-17) are only $10. Kids aged 7-12 are only $3 and Kids 6 and under are free. Race time is 7:30pm. The pit gates open at 5:00pm before the main grandstand opens at 6:00pm. For the full schedule of Ohsweken Speedway events, visit www.ohswekenspeedway.ca.

Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprints Cars

Entering the final week of action, the Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Car title is far from decided. With 13 races in the books, reigning and defending champion Dylan Westbrook leads Mack DeMan by just two points. Westbrook is looking for his third 360 track title while DeMan is seeking his first in just his second season of 360 competition. Sitting third in the standings, and still mathematically alive in the championship chase is Tillsonburg’s Cory Turner who is 30 points back of the lead. Fenwick’s Jim Huppunen sits fourth in the standings while Mitch Brown is just six points back of Huppunen to complete the top-five. Rounding out the top-10 are Ryan Turner, Scott Kreutter, Holly Porter, rookie Josh Hansen and Shane Ross.

Strickland’s Brantford Chevrolet Crate Sprint Cars

The Strickland’s Brantford Chevrolet Crate Sprint Car title is still a three horse race. Mount Brydges, Ont. native and rookie driver Nick Sheridan leads the way entering the final night of action. His advantage is just 12 points over local driver Lucas Smith of Brantford. Sheridan’s three wins and nine top-fives in 12 starts have propelled him to the top of the standings and given him a shot at the track title. Meanwhile, Smith has been ultra consistent as well with a win and nine top-10 finishes. The third driver with a realistic shot at the title is St. Thomas, Ont. driver Jesse Costa, who has three wins to his credit as well. Costa has said he’s hoping for a wide and slick track to make his run at the championship. Regardless of who claims the title, it will be the sixth different champion in the six seasons the Crate Sprint Car division has competed at Ohsweken.

Fonthill’s Steven Beckett comes into the night 45 points back of the lead and is 24 points ahead of fifth-place DJ Christie. Paul Klager, Dereck Lemyre, Jacob Dykstra, Liam Martin and Brad Herron round out the top-10.

Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks

The Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stock title is the only division where the trophy is all but engraved. Provided he starts his heat race, Hagersville native Dave Bailey will claim his fifth straight Thunder Stock championship at Ohsweken. Bailey comes into the night with a 66-point advantage over Trevor DeBoer. Logan Shwedyk, Ryan Beagle and Ryan Dinning round out the top-five, with the three drivers separated by a total of 37 points. Jim Lampman, Donny Lampman, Ken Sargent, Mark Fawcett and Christopher Hale hold top-10 spots with one race remaining.

HRW Automotive Mini Stocks

Once again, the HRW Automotive Mini Stock division has the tightest point battle coming into the night. Kyle Wert of Ancaster and Dusty DeBoer of Hagersville come into the night tied for the lead with 937 points each. Seemingly, it will be a mano-a-mano finish to the year, but Waterdown’s Tristan Da Silva also remains in the mix with only a 19-point gap to overcome. With one of the three drivers set to become champion, the Mini Stock division will have its fourth different titlist in the last five years. Tim DeBoer and Ryan Hillar round out the top-five while last week’s winner Wayde Thorne sits sixth. Jonathan Ayrton, Mike Sarantakos, Kevin Thorne and Cole Hardy complete the top-10.

Reutzel Ready for All Star Triple in Posse Territory after Notching Another Victory

Lonnie Wheatley, CLUTE, Texas (September 5, 2019) – Aaron Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team have been on a roll in All Star Circuit of Champions competition in recent weeks with four scores in the most recent eight events.

It’s momentum that the team tries to carry into this week’s set of events that includes Bedford Speedway on Thursday night and then the $52,000-to-win Tuscarora 50 on Friday and Saturday at Port Royal Speedway.

“We have had some good speed and some pretty good luck at Port Royal,” Reutzel says. “Hopefully, we’ll have that this weekend, this would be a nice one to win.”

Reutzel enters this weekend’s action after notching his 12th overall win of the season last Friday night at Ohio’s Attica Raceway Park.

It kicked off what was a nearly perfect weekend, with only mechanical issues denying a likely Saturday night win at Attica and then a close runner-up finish at Wayne County Speedway on Monday after the Sunday card fell victim to rain.

Reutzel opened up the scheduled four-race Labor Day weekend by timing in second-quickest at Attica Raceway Park among the field of 33 and then secured the fourth starting position for the feature aboard the Folkens Brothers Trucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X Sprint Car after a third-place heat race run and a runner-up Dash finish.

Stalking the leader throughout the feature, Reutzel took advantage on a late restart to snare the win aboard the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment machine.

“I was trying to maintain with Buddy (Kofoid), but he was setting a really fast pace all the way and I had to really race hard just to stay with him,” Reutzel recalls. “We had a caution with about five laps to go, he made a mistake on the restart and I was able to slide him to get the lead.”

The Saturday portion of Attica Raceway Park’s Brad Doty Classic got off to a rough start for Reutzel and the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspensions team with a qualifying run that put him seventh in his heat race starting grid.

“I jumped the cushion coming to the white flag, it ruined both laps,” Reutzel explains. “That was probably the worst that we’ve ever qualified.”

Reutzel made quick amends by racing from seventh to second in his heat race to secure a slot in the Dash and started the feature outside the second row for the second night in a row.

And for the second night in a row, it looked to be another run to victory lane.

“It was the same scenario, the car was so good that I only had to run at maybe 70%,” Reutzel says. “I got to the leader, he made a mistake and I got by and was able to set my own pace.”

Reutzel fought off one challenge before recapturing the lead. “He got by, then I got back up on the wheel and got the lead back. We had it, then we lost the engine.”

With the mechanical issue resulting in a hit in the points race, the team bounced back on Monday night at Wayne County Speedway with another near-win, this time settling for runner-up honors.

“We were probably good enough to win,” Reutzel says. “The leader set a pace that I had to run 110% just to keep up. We had a shot on the last lap, but he made a good lap and we couldn’t quite get by. It was a good points night for us that we needed after Saturday.”

Reutzel will try to keep getting those points this weekend along with a $52,000 Tuscarora 50 winner’s share.

2019 Quick Stats: 67 races, 12 wins, 30 top-fives, 42 top-tens.

Next Up: All Star Circuit of Champions at Bedford (PA) Speedway on Thursday and Port Royal (PA) Speedway on Friday and Saturday.

Baughman Takes on All Stars after Jackson Score

Lonnie Wheatley, KNOXVILLE, Iowa (September 5, 2019) – Josh Baughman and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 17 Sprint Car team are set for a weekend of All Star Circuit of Champions competition in Pennsylvania following a stellar weekend in Minnesota at the Jackson Motorplex 360 Nationals.

This weekend’s set of events commences at Bedford Speedway on Thursday night before shifting to the $52,000-to-win Tuscarora 50 at Port Royal Speedway on Friday and Saturday.

“We’ve been top ten at Bedford, then Port Royal can be really tricky. It gets slick but it still carries good speed,” Baughman commented.

Baughman takes momentum into the weekend after racing to victory lane at the Jackson Motorplex on Friday night and following that up with podium runs of second on Saturday and then third in the Sunday night finale of Jackson’s 360 Nationals.

“That’s a place that we have always done pretty well at and we just had such a good car all weekend, it was nice to capitalize on that with good finishes every night,” Baughman says.

After timing in sixth among the field of 47 in Friday’s 360 Nationals opener, Baughman raced to second-place heat race finish to earn the front row outside starting position for the feature. From there, he led the entire way in the 25-lap main event to post the win.

I’m tired,” he said in victory lane. “I’ve led a lot of laps here and could never pull it off. This means a lot. The curb got really big at the end. I’m glad we didn’t give that one away.”

Baughman timed in better at second-quickest on Saturday night and then posted a third-place heat race run before climbing from fifth to capture runner-up honors in the feature event.

After finishing second in Sunday night’s Dash to earn the front row outside starting position for the weekend’s 30-lap finale, Baughman finished it in strong form with a third-place podium finish.

Back to the 410-ci ranks this weekend, Baughman looks to keep the momentum rolling.

Next Up: All Star Circuit of Champions at Bedford (PA) Speedway on Thursday and Port Royal (PA) Speedway on Friday and Saturday.

Bogucki Stays in ASCS Title Hunt With Pair of Podium Finishes

Inside Line Promotions - ELDON, Mo. (Sept. 5, 2019) - Scott Bogucki remains in the hunt for the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour title thanks to a pair of podium finishes last weekend.

The SawBlade.com sponsored team scored a third-place result last Friday at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa, and another third on Sunday at Lake Ozark Speedway to stay third in the ASCS national standings.

"We were really good at 34 Raceway, winning our heat from third and staying in the top three the entire feature," Bogucki said.

However, the opening night of a two-night event at Lake Ozark Speedway had Bogucki scratching his head on Saturday.

"I had a bunch of left rear tires that I thought were in good shape from the Knoxville Nationals and we put one on Saturday and the car was absolutely horrible," he said. "I had to take a provisional and just pulled in. We changed to a different compound for Sunday and the car was a rocket. That's literally all we did. We didn't change shocks, bars or anything and we went out and ran second in the heat and ran away with the qualifier and was battling for the feature win. I'm really baffled on this one.

"This track challenges our team like no other and this weekend was no different. But I think we got a pretty good handle on a dry slick track Sunday."

Bogucki and the SawBlade.com team will take this weekend off before the final push for the ASCS title.

"We have nine races left and we will take this weekend to get everything organized and go through everything and make sure we are ready for this final push," he said. "We are still in the top three in points and we have a huge weekend coming up and I'd like to put a little more buffer between myself and the fourth-place team."

The next ASCS National Tour event is Sept. 19-21 at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo., for the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial.

"Last year we got a third, blew a motor and came from eighth to finish second on the final night in Wheatland so we are pumped up to get back there," Bogucki said.

QUICK RESULTS -

Aug. 30 - 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa - Heat race: 1 (3); Feature: 3 (4).

Aug. 31 - Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo. - Heat race: 8 (5); B Main: 6 (15); Feature: 25 (23).

Taylor Rebounds Twice for Fifth-Place Finish at Honor Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - PUEBLO, Colo. (Sept. 5, 2019) - Zac Taylor had to rebound from a pair of incidents to come from the tail and score a fifth-place finish last Saturday at Honor Speedway during a POWRi Lucas Oil Rocky Mountain Midget Racing Association event.

Taylor won his heat race, but a dice roll of 12 started him 12th in the feature.

"We got going pretty good and I was battling for fourth and the guy ahead of me caught a rut," he said. "My right front hit his left rear and the guy behind me got into me and I got on my side. They pushed the car back on all fours and I went to the tail. We battled back to ninth and got spun out again. I got back to seventh at the finish, but two cars were ruled ineligible so they awarded us fifth.

"It was a crazy race. I bet we ran 100 laps. It took an hour to complete 30 racing laps. I was mentally and physically exhausted."

The POWRi Lucas Oil Warrior Sprint League was supposed to compete the same night, but Taylor and only one other car showed up and the other competitor had mechanical issues. Taylor was allowed to run laps, which was beneficial to the team as they prepare for the end of the season events.

"We went there with the intention of working on our dry-slick setup," he said. "My dad and Todd Henry found a setup I really like. We are getting closer and I can't wait to go to El Paso County Raceway in a couple of weeks. We aren't racing this coming weekend and are looking at getting back to it in a couple of weeks."

Taylor returns to action on Sept. 21 at I-76 Speedway in Fort Morgan, Colo., with the RMMRA before venturing to El Paso County Raceway in Calhan, Colo., on Sept. 28 with the POWRi Lucas Oil Warrior Sprint League.

QUICK RESULTS -

Aug. 31 - Honor Speedway in Pueblo, Colo. - Heat race: 1 (1); Feature: 5 (12).

21 races, 3 wins, 13 top fives, 15 top 10s, 18 top 15s, 21 top 20s

Taylor would also like to thank SuperClean, Gator Stakes, SafeTop, a division of Industrial Manufacturing Machining, USA Performance Racing, Buckeye Welding and Supply, H&H Resurfacing, Progressive Signs and Pitt Stop Motorsports for their continued support.

 

 

Brian Brown Wraps Up First Weekend of Season in Central PA With Charge From 20th to Fifth

Inside Line Promotions - PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Sept. 4, 2019) - Brian Brown enjoyed a successful season debut in Central Pennsylvania last weekend when he earned a trio of top-10 finishes, including a rally from 20th to fifth on Monday that garnered the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars.

Aug. 30 - Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa. - Qualifying: 3; Heat race: 2 (1); Feature: 6 (4).

"It was good to get back there," Brown said. "We hadn't been there in a year. The last time we were there we were pretty good at the National Open. We wanted to see if what we did last year worked. We started off pretty decent qualifying third. In the heat we weren't that great and got passed by (Brian) Montieth. In the feature we were decent at times and not so decent at times. I feel like we should have ran third. I was running fourth and made a mistake trying to pass a guy and we ran sixth. Overall it was a decent night. Either you win or you learn and sometimes when you win you learn. It was a night we felt we learned quite a bit that will hopefully pay dividends down the road."

Aug. 31 - Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pa. - Heat race: 3 (4); Feature: 8 (9).

"We knew going there with it being a handicap show that no matter how we did in the heat the best we could start (in the feature) was ninth," Brown said. "It was kinda the same idea all weekend was that we need to go out there a week early to see if we can learn something that will help us. The conditions that we faced Saturday and Monday will be similar to what we'll see in the Tuscarora 50. I think it even paid off on Monday."

Sept. 2 - Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pa. - Heat race: 5 (7); Feature: 5 (20).

"You needed to be in the top three in the heat to make the feature redraw," Brown said. "We got into the top three, but just weren't good enough. I made some bad decisions on the setup on the car and I paid for it in the heat race. We went backwards after going forward. Me and Chad put our heads together to come up with a good plan for the feature and we were able to charge from 20th to fifth. We passed some really good race cars. That's very exciting for us going into the Tuscarora 50 this weekend."

UP NEXT - Thursday at Bedford Speedway in Bedford, Pa., and Friday and Saturday at Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pa., with the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions

"The last time we were at Bedford we won," Brown said. "I watched some videos and we looked at our notebook and hopefully we can unload in the hunt. The All Stars are a fast group of guys right now. If you want to run good you have to be on your game.

"When Port Royal gets the way it was last weekend it's very low grip. Usually at home if the tracks get that slick it lays rubber. Here when it gets that slick the racing gets better. It's one of the raciest tracks in the world. It's an unbelievable surface and what they're doing with the facility, every time I go there I'm more and more amazed."

Kraig Kinser Earns Career-Best Result at Skagit Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - ELMA, Wash. (Sept. 4, 2019) - Kraig Kinser posted his career-best finish at Skagit Speedway last Friday during the opening night of the World of Outlaws at Skagit Presented by Scottie's Plumbing.

Kinser qualified second quickest before he won both a heat race and the dash from the pole position. That lined him up on the inside of the front row for the A Main at the oval in Alger, Wash.

"I've ran good there in the past, but haven't been able to finish it off," he said. "Logan (Schuchart) had the car to beat all weekend. He had speed and handling and a little of everything. That's what you look for. We were able to hang with him pretty well that first night, but he was able to get through traffic and I never could capitalize on it."

Kinser ran second the entire race to finish second, which is also his best outing of the season.

The action continued on Saturday at Skagit Speedway, where Kinser qualified sixth quickest before he won a heat race for the second straight night. Unfortunately, he drew the last row for the dash and finished sixth, lining him up on the outside of the third row for the main event.

"It was lot slicker than I thought," he said. "We were running fifth and running the top and I went to the bottom and spun out. When you're running in the top five you never want to give those away. I dove in there a little too hard and couldn't gain control back."

Kinser restarted at the back and finished the race with a 15th -place result.

The team ventured to Grays Harbor Raceway on Monday. Kinser timed in sixth quickest before he placed fourth in a heat race and third in the qualifier. He gained a position in the feature to end sixth, which was his 20 th top 10 of the season.

"Those are the nights you can build on," he said. "I got into fifth at one point and wish we could have hung on there, but a sixth-place finish is good. It was a solid weekend all around with qualifying decent and racing pretty decent."

Kinser is slated to compete on Wednesday at Willamette Speedway in Lebanon, Ore., and on Friday and Saturday at Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, Calif., during the Gold Cup Race of Champions with the World of Outlaws.

QUICK RESULTS -

Aug. 30 - Skagit Speedway in Alger, Wash. - Qualifying: 2; Heat race: 1 (1); Dash: 1 (1); Feature: 2 (1).

Final 2009 Path Valley race Saturday

The PA Sprint Series makes its final visit of 2009 to its favorite bullring, the quarter-mile Path Valley Speedway.

In six previous races this season (with one rainout), PASS/IMCA has seen Ken Duke Jr. and Drew Ritchey take two wins apiece, with single victories going to Doug Dodson and Zach Newlin, who holds the all-time RaceSaver Sprint victory lead with eight. All but Dodson have preregistered for Saturday’s race.

The race also begins a stretch of eight events at seven different speedways to end the 2019 season.

Entering that homestretch, Duke leads the PASS point standings with 765 points. The “Iceman” from Selinsgrove also leads the Pennsylvania and National RaceSaver standings, propelled by his eight victories and 17 top-five finishes. Defending PASS champ “Zach Daddy” Newlin, from Millerstown, trails by 32 points with a record of four wins, 14 top-fives and 22 top-10 finishes, the latter number matching Duke. Newlin stands fifth in the national standings.

Dodson, last week’s BAPS Motor Speedway winner Devin Adams, and John Walp round out the top five in PASS points.

The racing card Saturday also includes Super Sportsman cars, 270 and 600cc micro sprints, 4-cylinder thunder cars and 4-cylinder strictly stocks. Warm-ups are set to begin at 7:00 p.m. General admission is $10, and pit passes are $30 (plus $5 for non-members).

Giovanni Scelzi Sweeps King of the Wings Race; Two Marquee Events on Tap This Week

Inside Line Promotions - ATTICA, Ohio (Sept. 4, 2019) - Giovanni Scelzi backed up his King of the Wings victory last year by dominating the event last weekend, scoring his second straight victory in as many career starts at Gas City I-69 Speedway.

Scelzi and car owner Bernie Stuebgen made the most of a last-minute decision to invade the bullring in Gas City, Ind., last Friday. The team set a new track record during qualifying before winning a heat race from fourth and the main event from sixth.

"We were good all night," Scelzi said. "We got right into third in the feature and then passed Cole Duncan for second and then T.J. Michael for the lead within the first few laps. Lapped traffic was insane. We were going top, bottom and middle. There was a lot of maneuvering."

Scelzi was methodical as he picked through the field and through traffic en route to his sixth triumph of the season.

The weekend concluded on Saturday at Attica Raceway Park, which hosted the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions during the Brad Doty Classic. Scelzi qualified quickest in his group and seventh overall before a sixth-place result in a heat race relegated him to the B Main. He won that race to transfer into the back of the main event before capping the night with a rally from 21st to 16th.

Scelzi shifts gears this week with a busy four-day stretch. He will compete in a midget on Wednesday and Thursday at The Dirt Track at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indianapolis, Ind., with the USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget Series during the famed BC 39 before venturing to Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pa., for the Tuscarora 50 on Friday and Saturday.

"I want to thank Toyota Racing Development and Jack Irving as well as Chad and Billy Boat for the opportunity," he said. "It's exciting to get more laps in a midget and it will be a great challenge this week during one of USAC's biggest events.

"I'm also looking forward to getting to Port Royal. It's one of my favorite places. The track has been on point every time I've been there and with the videos I've watched. Last year we were running fourth during the Tuscarora 50 and we broke a rear end. Hopefully we'll have similar speed without the misfortune this weekend."

QUICK RESULTS -

Aug. 30 - Gas City I-69 Speedway in Gas City, Ind. - Qualifying: 1; Heat race: 1 (4); Feature: 1 (6).

Aug. 31 - Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio - Qualifying: 7; Heat race: 6 (4); B Main: 1 (1); Feature: 16 (21).

Starks Caps 360 Nationals at Jackson Motorplex With Top-Five Run

Inside Line Promotions - JACKSON, Minn. (Sept. 4, 2019) - Trey Starks produced a trio of top-six results last weekend during the DeKalb/Asgrow 360 Nationals presented by Kuhlman Lake Service & Welding, Inc. and Tweeter Contracting hosted by Jackson Motorplex.

The Gobrecht Motorsports driver placed fourth on Friday, sixth on Saturday and fifth on Sunday in an event that showcased nearly 50 drivers.

"We're happy with our results," he said. "We wanted to win races, but to move forward each night and finish in the top five twice when there's almost 50 drivers competing is a positive."

The event began on Friday with Starks qualifying second quickest overall. He then advanced from sixth to third place in a heat race before gaining a position to finish fourth in the A Main.

"It was a great points night for us overall," he said. "Qualifying that well and getting a strong start to the heat race set us up in a good position. We made progress in the feature as well. It was just a efficient night from start to finish."

The team returned to the 4/10-mile oval on Saturday for the second preliminary night. Starks timed in 17th quickest during qualifying. He then maneuvered from third to second in a heat race and from 12th to sixth in the main event.

"We didn't get timed in as well as we wanted, which was a hit in points," he said. "We got through the heat and then had a good run in the feature. I think we got stronger as the race went and if we had a few more laps we could have gained even more positions."

Starks ranked fifth in overall preliminary points - only one position out of locking into the dash. That gave him the pole of a heat race on a Sunday. His second-place finish lined him up on the inside of the fifth row for the feature.

"Finishing second in the heat kept us out of the dash, which would have started us a little closer to the front for the feature," he said. "We were pleased to move forward in the main event and make the progress we did. Track position is everything in racing so I think if we could have started in the first couple of rows we could have contended for the win. However, it's tough to complain about finishing fifth in the 360 Nationals when there's about 50 of the top drivers in the Midwest there."

The fifth-place result was his seventh top five of the season and fifth at Jackson Motorplex. Starks finished tied for second in the championship standings.

The team heads east this weekend to compete on Thursday at Bedford Speedway in Bedford, Pa., and on Friday and Saturday at Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pa., with the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions.

Wilson Charges Forward at Attica Before Hustling to Top 10 at Wayne County

Inside Line Promotions - ORRVILLE, Ohio (Sept. 4, 2019) - Greg Wilson garnered a pair of top 10s in his home state of Ohio last weekend to highlight a busy slate of action with the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions.

Wilson and his Hercules Tires, DNC Hydraulics, Ohio Logistics and Gear Off Road sponsored team opened the weekend on Friday at Attica Raceway Park in Attica, where an opening-lap incident in a heat race buried Wilson for the remainder of the night. He rebounded by placing third in the B Main and charging from 23rd to eighth in the main event, earning the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars.

"We're fairly good at Attica," he said. "I felt like that was a place we had a shot at winning. To get torn up on the first lap of the heat race is not cool. We patched it up, but it bent up a lot of stuff. We struggled early in the feature and then partway through I got my wing back and that helped. The track came to us and that helped, too. We had a restart late in the race and we got by quite a few cars in the last few laps."

Wilson returned to the bullring on Saturday for the Ohio Logistics Brad Doty Classic. He had similar circumstances early in the night as he transferred through the B Main before maneuvering from 22nd to 14th in the main event, once again capturing the Hard Charger Award.

"I was frustrated with myself," he said. "I made the call to leave the car freed up for the feature. We passed cars, but we were better the night before with a bent up race car. It was my fault. That's the rough part when you're doing a lot of it by the seat of your pants. The night before I felt like we were too tight early. The track was a little more wet on Saturday through the whole night. I thought we better not get carried away so we can maneuver early on. We made some moves and then flattened out and couldn't do a whole lot."

Sunday's All Star event was rained out before a show on Monday at Wayne County Speedway wrapped up the holiday weekend. Wilson produced his best night, qualifying ninth quickest overall and fastest in his group. He powered from fourth to second in a heat race before winning a dash despite a close call on the final lap.

"More than anything you start feeling comfortable in the race car and things start going better; confidence breeds confidence," he said. "I felt like after the dash when you can run wheel to wheel with (Aaron) Reutzel right now you're getting close. Rolling into the A Main I went in with the attitude, after all but wrecking on the last lap of the dash, I needed to keep calm to not junk the thing and be there at the end."

Unfortunately, the right rear radius rod and Jacob's Ladder broke midway through the race and Wilson, who was battling for a podium, held on for a seventh-place finish.

"We were cruising along, trying not to hit the holes wrong," he said. "We fell to fourth or fifth and I got myself back to third. I'm assuming that's when it broke. To hang on and not have anything dumb happen, it was a situation that could have easily dropped us out, yet we managed to hold on to a top 10. I feel like if we don't break we're a top-three car, but that's part of it."

Wilson remains sixth in the championship standings heading into All Star races this Thursday at Bedford Speedway in Bedford, Pa.; and Friday and Saturday at Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pa.

Hill Shows Continued Improvement During Three-Day Racing Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - ELDON, Mo. (Sept. 4, 2019) - Alex Hill scored her career-best finish at one track and displayed speed in her first visit to another during three nights of racing with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour last weekend.

Hill's racing weekend began Friday with her debut at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa, where she won her heat race and was running near the top five in the feature before a mechanical problem ended her night early.

"We had a fast car all night," she said. "I was running in about sixth or seventh in the feature when the fuel line disconnected and ended our night. That was disappointing."

Hill and her team headed south the following day for Night 1 of a doubleheader at Lake Ozark Speedway, where she battled a challenging track and finished ninth in the B Main after starting 13th.

"The track was heavy and it was hammer-down for both of our races," she said. "It was narrow and really difficult to pass. I was able to pass a few cars in the B Main, but not enough to get to a transfer spot."

Lake Ozark Speedway offered a completely different racing surface on Sunday, when a third-place finish in her heat race placed Hill on the pole for her qualifier.

"(Scott) Bogucki started beside me and got the lead at the start, but I was able to hold onto second," she said.

Hill ranked ninth in overall points so she started on the inside of the fifth row in the A Main. An incident at the start forced her to lose some positions, but she battled the challenging surface and brought home a career-best 15th-place result at the track.

"A couple of cars in front of me got together at the start and I backed off to avoid them," she said. "But they kept going and there wasn't a yellow so I lost some spots. The track was really slick and that's usually difficult for me. But I finished 15th and felt pretty good with that."

Hill is looking forward to returning home this Friday for a final tune-up at Ohsweken Speedway in Ohsweken, Ontario, Canada, prior to the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals the following week.

"I'm always excited about racing at my home track," she said. "I'm glad we get a chance to race there one more time before our biggest race of the season."

Hagar Wraps Up Holiday Weekend With Win At Talladega Short Track

Inside Line Promotions - EASTABOGA, Ala. (Sept. 4, 2019) - Derek Hagar captured a trio of top-five finishes last weekend, capping it with a feature victory.

Hagar started off the long Labor Day Weekend with a Mid-South Sprint Car Association 305ci sprint car race at Crowley's Ridge Raceway in Paragould, Ark, on Friday. The win was almost in his grasp, but slipped away at the last second.

"I was driving for Cody and Allison Hayes in their sprint car," he said. "We started second and ran second during our heat race. We lined up fifth in the feature and took the lead on Lap 4."

Hagar led most of the race, but when a late-race caution came out his tires started to go away. Once the race resumed, Hagar got passed and ended up finishing fourth.

"It was disappointing," he said. "I was really hoping to get them their first win. It was looking promising, but it just didn't work out in our favor."

Hagar competed at Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark., on Saturday with the MSCA Series. He started fifth in his heat race and finished third. That lined him up eighth in the feature and he was able to make his way to third.

"Our car was pretty good," he said. "We might've been better if we were able to start closer to the front, but overall we were happy with how that night went."

Hagar returned to his 360ci winged sprint car on Sunday with the USCS Series at Talladega Short Track. He lined up fourth in the heat race and made it up to second, which started him sixth in the feature.

"It was a 30-lap race and I was able to make my way up to second when a caution came out with four laps to go," he said. "The leader was way out ahead of us so there was no way I would've caught her if it had stayed green. When the race restarted, she went to protect the bottom and I was able to drive around her in the middle. We led the rest of the race and got the win."

It marked his seventh feature victory of the season.

Hagar will return to Riverside International Speedway this Saturday for the Fall Nationals.

QUICK RESULTS -

Aug. 30 - Crowley's Ridge Raceway in Paragould, Ark. - Heat race: 2 (2); Feature: 4 (5).

Zearfoss scores Brad Doty Classic worth $10,000; Bedford and Port Royal ahead

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

JONESTOWN, Pa. (September 3, 2019) – Brock Zearfoss’ Labor Day weekend in the Buckeye State was impressive. Not only did the Jonestown, Pennsylvania-native secure his third All Star Circuit of Champions victory of the 2019 season, but Zearfoss solidified his place in sprint car history by becoming a Brad Doty Classic champion at Attica Raceway Park. Exciting enough, Zearfoss’ feat awarded him a $10,000 top prize; the largest payday of his young, but accomplished career.

“I’m not sure it actually even set in yet,” Brock Zearfoss said, driver of the Moose’s LZ Bar & Grill/Heavy Equipment, Loaders & Parts Inc./BAPS Auto Paint & Supply/Meckley’s Limestone Products/Berkebile Oil Company/No. 70 sprint car. “I’ve been wanting to enter that race for the last few years. For it to finally happen, and to win it, is incredible. I can’t say enough about this team. Tye and Shane work their tails off for me and I couldn’t be more proud. I’m confident more wins like this are in store for us.”

Zearfoss’ Brad Doty Classic title on Saturday, August 31, was flanked by a fourth place finish at Attica Raceway Park on Friday, August 30; the product of row six. Certainly not his most impressive passing display of the long, holiday weekend, Zearfoss capped his four-race turned three-race schedule with an insane rally from 20th to finish ninth at Wayne County Speedway on Monday, September 2. Suffering from mechanical issues while leading his respective heat race, Zearfoss rebounded to win the evening’s B-main, setting the stage for his MSD Hard Charger Award during the 30-lap, Rick Susong Memorial feature later that evening.

Wayne County Speedway action set for Sunday, September 1, was cancelled due to weather.

Up next on the schedule, Brock Zearfoss the familiar No. 70 team will venture back to Pennsylvania, ready to rejoin the All Star Circuit of Champions during appearances at Bedford Speedway on Thursday, September 5, as well as at Port Royal Speedway on Friday and Saturday, September 6 & 7. The three-race weekend will be headlined with the $52,000-to-win Tuscarora 50 at Port Royal on Saturday night.

Haas finds top-five during Bob Leiby Memorial; Tuscarora 50 next

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

YORK, Pa. (September 3, 2019) – Two starts translated into back-to-back top-ten performances for York’s Cory Haas during the recent weekend: a perfect momentum shift as Port Royal Speedway’s annual Tuscarora 50, awarding a $52,000 top prize on Saturday, September 7, looms in the distance.

Haas, driver of John Trone’s Trone Outdoor Motorsports/Trone Outdoor Advertising/Wicked Cushion/Bricker’s/York PB Truss/Creekside Auto Sales/Connecticut Oil Kings/Old Republic Distillery/No. 39 sprint car, finished eighth and fourth, respectively, during his recent weekend outing, kicking things off with an eighth place finish during the Keith Kauffman Tribute at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, August 30.

Michael scores top-five during FAST outing at Gas City Speedway

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

FREMONT, Ohio (September 3, 2019) – Despite ending his Labor Day campaign on a sour note by missing All Star Circuit of Champions A-Main action during the coveted Brad Doty Classic on August 31, the ‘Texas Traveler’ T.J. Michael made his presence known during the holiday weekend and nearly marched his way to victory during a FAST Series start at Gas City Speedway in Gas City, Indiana, on Friday, August 30.

Certainly no stranger to finishing inside the top-five, the Plano, Texas-native, who resides in Fremont, Ohio, during the summer months, finished fourth at the always-racey quarter-mile on Friday night, utilizing the pole position to maintain his place inside the top-five the entire distance.

Michael, a recent big-money FAST Series winner in Waynesfield, Ohio, kicked-off his evening at the Gas City bullring with a runner-up finish during heat race competition.

“We were aiming for a better result at the Brad Doty Classic, but we’ll shake that off and keep moving forward. That’s all we can do,” 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/Soul Fully Rooted/Big D’s Pizza/No. 8M sprint car. “Regardless, we had a great night at Gas City the night before and I’m glad we made the trip.

Michalski sets aim on Tuscarora 50

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

PENNDEL, Pa. (September 3, 2019) – It has grown into one of the premier sprint car events in the country, and Penndel, Pennsylvania’s Brett Michalski wants in.

Set to takeover Port Royal Speedway headlines on Friday and Saturday, September 6 & 7, the 52nd running of the Tuscarora 50 featuring the All Star Circuit of Champions will be the main attraction during the coming weekend. The two-day showstopper, launching officially with a $5,000-to-win preliminary on Friday, will conclude with a monstrous 50-lap, $52,000-to-win A-Main on Saturday, September 7; the largest paying program on the 2019 All Star schedule.

“I’m excited for the Tuscarora 50,” Brett Michalski said, driver of the Brett Michalski Motorsports/JR Michalski Heating & Air Conditioning/Irish Rover Station House/York by Johnson Controls/Wood Services/Big Heads/Richboro Pub/Maxim Chassis/Don Ott Racing Engines/Kriner Engines/Penske Shocks/VP Racing Fuels/Hoosier Tire/Wings Unlimited/Racer’s Used and New Parts Warehouse/No. 73B sprint car. “It’s one of the premier events in Central Pennsylvania. There’s no way we were going to miss this.”

Although his recent weekend results were below expectations, finishing 18th at Lincoln during the Bob Leiby Memorial, as well as 18th during Port Royal Speedway’s Labor Day Classic on September 2, Michalski has plenty of momentum on his side. The ‘Penndel Pistol’ owns one victory in 2019, that occurring at the ‘Fabulous’ Lincoln Speedway on Saturday, June 8.

Baker shows promise during Rick Susong Memorial at Wayne County

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

SHREVE, Ohio (September 3, 2019) – Despite ending his evening 20th on the score sheet, ‘T-Rev’ Trevor Baker’s visit to Wayne County Speedway with the All Star Circuit of Champions on Monday, September 2, was filled with promise. In fact, Baker set the second fastest time during his respective group of qualifiers, all before finishing third during his respective heat race.

Although momentum and speed were clearly on his side, the main event did not end in Baker’s favor, eventually fading to 20th after starting 12th on the grid.

“We definitely had some speed early on in the night. That’s motivating, especially against that level of competition,” Trevor Baker said, driver of the T-Rev Performance/Baker’s Mobile Home Transport/Exodus Cycle/Coblentz Trucking/No. 45 sprint car. “I’m proud of my team. We have what it takes to be up front, we just need to figure out a way to harness everything.”

Trevor Baker’s upcoming plans stand as uncertain. Options for the coming weekend range from an appearance at Fremont Speedway to an appearance at Port Royal Speedway. A final decision will be made later in the week.

Whittall 12th in Port’s Labor Day Classic; Tuscarora 50 on deck

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

VINCENTOWN, N.J. (September 3, 2019) – An event that has been circled on his racing calendar since the beginning of the season, Vincentown, New Jersey’s Justin Whittall is ready to get down with the best-of-the-best at Port Royal Speedway. Although the track’s scenery will remain the same, the stakes will be higher, as the annual Tuscarora 50 is on weekend horizon.

The All Star Circuit of Champions doubleheader, scheduled for Friday and Saturday, September 6 & 7, will be headlined with the 52nd running of the 50-lap Tuscarora 50, boasting an unprecedented $52,000 top prize in 2019.

Whittall, driver of the JW Motorsports/Atlantic Utility Trailer/Brotherton Brewing Company/Pioneer Auto Body/Worldwide Bearings/No. 67 sprint car, has been a regular competitor at Port Royal Speedway for much of the 2019 season. The recent high school graduate hopes to use the lap time acquired to his advantage, ultimately earning a spot in Saturday’s prestigious A-Main.

“We’re pretty excited for the Tuscarora 50. We know the level of competition expected to be there, but we are not shying away from anything; we’re ready to go,” Whittall said, who has finished as high as second at Port Royal Speedway in 2019, most recently finishing third on August 24. “It’s a great place to race and we love the atmosphere. I think if we can put an entire night together and qualify well, we’ll be in contention for a respectable finish.”

Labor Day weekend proved to be a great test session for Whittall’s upcoming Tuscarora attempt, eventually capping the holiday with a 12th place finish during Port Royal’s Labor Day Classic on Monday, September 2.

Unfortunately, Whittall’s Port Royal Speedway attempt during the fair opener on Saturday, August 31, ended on the hook; he was scored 23rd.

Dietrich highlights Labor Day Weekend with Keith Kauffman Tribute victory; Tuscarora 50 looms

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (September 3, 2019) – Officially reaching 14 on his 2019 win count, ‘Double-D’ Danny Dietrich found victory lane yet again during the recent weekend, this time claiming the Keith Kauffman Tribute worth $4,777 at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, August 30. A convincing triumph, to say the least, Dietrich led all 25 circuits around the Williams Grove half-mile, officially bumping his Williams Grove Speedway win count to five on the season.

In addition to his visit to Williams Grove Speedway, Dietrich made the tow to the Port Royal ‘Speed Palace’ twice during Labor Day weekend, highlighting the pair of trips with a runner-up performance during the Juniata County Fair opener on Saturday, August 31.

Not his best result of the weekend, but maybe his most impressive, Dietrich earned a top-ten performance during Port Royal Speedway’s Labor Day Classic on Monday afternoon, September 2. Choosing to go to the tail in exchange for a potential top-ten bonus, Dietrich lined-up 18th on the grid and battled his way to a top-five position. While making an attempt to reach the podium, Dietrich spun to a stop, forced to do so while trying to miss a fellow competitor battling for the exact same position. Determined to secure the bonus, Dietrich rallied tough during the final six circuits and crossed under the final checkers eighth in the running order.

“I really hope the fans enjoyed that one. Things are only going to get more exciting this weekend during the Tuscarora 50,” 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 Cars/Self Made/No. 48 sprint car. “Hats off to this team. We continue to find ways to make speed, and we certainly need that with all of the big shows coming up in September. I’m ready to get after it.”

Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing will continue their 2019 campaign with a three-race weekend with the All Star Circuit of Champions, first joining the Series at Bedford Speedway in Bedford, Pennsylvania, on Thursday, September 5.

The weekend will conclude with Port Royal Speedway’s annual Tuscarora 50, launching officially with a $5,000 preliminary on Friday, followed by the unprecedented $52,000-to-win finale on Saturday.

Lonnie Wheatley, WINCHESTER, Ind. (September 4, 2019) – Brady Bacon etched his name into the record books by winning last year’s inaugural rendition of the USAC National Midgets “BC39” in the first race ever atop The Dirt Track at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

This week, Bacon will try to become the first two-time winner of the event as he defends his crown aboard the FMR No. 76e on Wednesday and Thursday.

Bacon’s title defense in the event gets under way in Wednesday night’s first heat race, as the “Macho Man” grids the field inside the fourth row. Wednesday’s heat race finishes and points will set the stage for Thursday’s qualifiers and then feature events.

“This is a special race, it meant a lot to win this one last year and I hope it’s something that we’re able to do again this week,” Bacon explained.

Bacon goes into the event after another strong outing in USAC Silver Crown competition that netted a fifth-place finish at Illinois’ Quoin State Fairgrounds on Sunday. Friday’s USAC Midget and Sprint Car combo at Granite City’s Tri-City Speedway fell victim to rain.

Bacon opened Sunday’s tilt at Du Quoin by landing a front row starting position aboard the Klatt Enterprises No. 6 entry with a time of 30.797 seconds atop the mile clay oval that was second quickest.

After a stint of 23 laps in the lead position during the first half of the 100-lapper, Bacon finished out the night in fifth.

“We couldn’t quite go as good at the end as some of the others, then we got pinched out of where we needed to be a couple of times late in the race,” Bacon explains. “We got the Klatt Enterprises No. 6 into the owner points lead though, which was the primary goal going into the night.”

After pushing the Klatt team into the USAC Silver Crown owner points lead, Bacon now sets his sights on making it two-for-two in USAC Midget “BC39” competition among a field of nearly 90 competitors.

Cannon McIntosh Slips USAC’s BC39 between Pair of POWRi Weekends

Lonnie Wheatley, BIXBY, Okla. (September 4, 2019) – While the Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League in full song as the calendar flips to September, Cannon McIntosh and the Dave Mac Motorsports Toyota-TRD Spike No. 08 Midget team are slipping in some mid-week USAC action as well.

After taking in the Labor Day weekend POWRi Midget double at Missouri’s Lake Ozark Speedway, McIntosh is set for his first run at the BC39 at The Dirt Track at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Wednesday and Thursday.

Once the BC39 event is in the books, it’s back to POWRi competition in Illinois with events at Jacksonville Speedway on Friday and then Canton’s Spoon River Speedway on Saturday.

With passing points in mind, McIntosh will kick off the BC39 by racing from the ninth starting position in Wednesday night’s third heat race at The Dirt Track at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. His heat race finish and passing points will set the stage for Thursday’s qualifiers and then feature events.

McIntosh will be looking for his second USAC Midget score after topping March’s Shamrock Classic at Du Quoin’s Southern Illinois Center.

McIntosh will then look for that elusive first POWRi National Midget feature win with this weekend’s events in Illinois. The 16-year-old was tantalizingly close to that first win once again this past weekend at Lake Ozark Speedway, only to have a mechanical issue deny a sure win.

“We were gone, nobody had anything for us,” McIntosh said of Saturday night’s feature atop the 1/3-mile clay oval near Eldon, MO, after racing from sixth to second in heat race action to earn the fourth starting position for the feature.

McIntosh raced into the lead in short order and was well in command until a late red flag. And he sensed something was amiss.

“I told Cody (Cordell) under the red that something wasn’t right, something felt off in the front end,” McIntosh recalls.

His instincts proved correct, with a front axle issue resulting in a meeting with the retaining wall that destroyed the car.

“I went into the turn and the car didn’t turn at all and I smoked the wall,” McIntosh says.

Breaking out the backup car for Sunday’s action, McIntosh bounced right back by winning his heat race form seventh to earn the pole position for the feature and then finished out the night in ninth in the main event.

“I led the first few laps, then we just lost momentum and I couldn’t ever get my rhythm back,” McIntosh explains.

The young gun will be looking for victory lane with both USAC and POWRi this week with the BC39 and then events in Illinois.

Along with Toyota-TRD, other marketing partners making the 2019 Cannon McIntosh slate of events possible includes Sanders and Associates, Car and Fleet, Mobil 1, Speedway Engine Development, Best Graphics, Fieldhouse Gear, Precision Inspection, Panels by Smoke, Walker Performance, Sanders Wheels, American Discount Brake and Muffler, D&N Fabrication, Darling Ingredients, PJ’s and Hinds Family.

Up Next: USAC National Midgets “BC39” at The Dirt Track at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Wednesday and Thursday; POWRi National Midget League at Jacksonville (IL) Speedway on Friday and Spoon River Speedway (Canton, IL) on Saturday.

Masse Battles Challenges at Electric City During Montana Round Up

Inside Line Promotions - GREAT FALLS, Mont. (Sept. 4, 2019) - Cody Masse battled adversity and overcame challenges during three nights of racing at the 26th annual Montana Round Up hosted by Electric City Speedway last weekend.

"It wasn't our best weekend overall, but we persevered through adversity, which is kind of what this whole year has been about," he said. "We did a good job of keeping the car on the track all three nights and made it through the weekend, which is something that hasn't happened in a while. While our results weren't the best, that was mostly beyond our control and we were happy to finally have a full weekend at the track."

The weekend began with a two-hour rain delay on Friday. That presented less than ideal track conditions when Masse lined up 10th in the night's NSA Series main event.

"The field got stacked up in front of me," he said. "In the accordion, I got over a wheel and got upside down before landing upright. Fortunately, about the only things wrong with the car were a crushed top wing and a flat left rear tire. My crew was able to get the car fixed and I rejoined the race.

"I'm really proud of my crew. Just like they have all year, they didn't give up and got us going again. I also appreciate the help of the other crews to get us back into the race."

In spite of racing conservatively, Masse managed to advance from the back to finish 10th after his crash.

"I didn't want to take a chance of crashing again, but we were still able to get a top-10 finish after being upside down on the opening lap," he said. "We were pretty happy with that."

Saturday found Masse once again lining up for the feature in the 10 th starting spot.

"With the previous night still fresh in my mind, I decided to take it a little easier on the opening lap," he said. "Of course, nothing happened this time and I lost a couple of spots. But then the car started working really well on the top of the track and I was able to move forward. I was up to about seventh with around four laps to go when I felt a vibration and the car quit. I figured the motor blew since this was the 36th night on it. But we were relieved to find out it was just a u-joint."

Masse was credited with a 17th-place result following the DNF. With repairs made, Masse rolled off 12th for the event's finale on Sunday.

"I went to the top of the track, but it wasn't as fast as it was on the previous night and I lost some spots," he said. "Then I moved to the bottom and was able to pass some cars until a caution with about seven laps to go. On the restart, I didn't have any grip and dropped back a bit and finished 13th."

Masse is hoping to finish the season on a high note this Friday and Saturday at Castrol Raceway in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, with the NSA Series.

Walter, Torque Racing cash in bonus IRA action at hometown track

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) September 4, 2019 – A last-minute addition to the team’s 2019 schedule found Josh Walter and Torque Racing making the short trip down the road to The Plymouth Dirt Track to compete with the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series during the 2019 Sheboygan County Fair at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, Aug. 31.

Walter was one of 26 IRA drivers to enter the IRA’s annual event at the Sheboygan County Fair as he ripped off the 14th fastest time in IRA qualifying with a lap of 12.041 seconds on the third-mile clay oval.

“In qualifying, I messed up the second lap, but I was still content for now with where we ended up,” Walter said.

After lining up fifth in the second IRA 10-lap heat race, Walter jumped the cushion in turn three on lap one, which allowed Johnny Fahl and Wayne Modjeski to surge past and drop the Plymouth driver back to seventh in the running order.

On lap 4, Walter rebounded to duck under Fahl and secure sixth in turn one. Walter held the top spot for the final six laps en route to a sixth-place finish behind heat race winner Jeremy Schultz.

Walter rolled off from the 16th starting spot in the 30-lap IRA main event before a red flag was displayed on the initial start when Scotty Thiel flipped in turn two ad collected Scotty Neitzel. After Thiel exited the race and three other cars were regulated to the rear of the field, Walter restarted 12th.

After another caution on lap four for a spin involving Steve Meyer, Walter restarted 11th and moved to the high groove on lap 6 before running down Russel Borland. On lap 10, Walter swept past Borland to break into the top 10. However, Borland battled back to regain 10th on lap 13.

The third and final caution flag appeared on lap 22 when Joey Moughan spun, which set up an eight-lap dash to the finish with Walter sitting 11th.

However, Walter struggled to find speed over in the closing laps as Kris Spitz, Wayne Modjeski and Scotty Neitzel moved past to drop Walter to 14th when the checkered flag fell on the race, which was won by retired three-time NASCAR Cup champion Tony Stewart.

“In the A, we had a good car and the car was coming to us in the late stages under green,” Walter said. “I haven't raced with tire bleeders in a while. I lost some tire pressure that bled off under the final caution with eight laps to go. I tried running the bottom of the track, but just lacked mechanical grip. Then I went back to the top too late.

“My crew did a great job,” he said. “There's a lot more to racing than what's in front of people and I feel like I made some mistakes. Still, I had fun and I was really excited to be back in a 410, Overall, we had a decent night. I’m getting more comfortable every time we hit the track.”

After taking the upcoming weekend off, Walter will return to action with the IRA for the Scott Semmelmann Memorial Race on Saturday, Sept. 14 at Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver Dam, Wis.

The team will then close out the 2019 season with the IRA at the season-ending event at The Plymouth Dirt at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, Sept. 28.

Strong Three Night Outing Yields Fifth Victory Of The Season For Blake Hahn

Bryan Hulbert - ELDON, Mo. (September 4, 2019) Picking up his fifth overall victory of the 2019 season this past weekend, Blake Hahn's three nights with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network saw just as many top-five finishes, along with the win, with events at Iowa's 34 Raceway and Missouri's Lake Ozark Speedway.
"We've had good momentum since Knoxville, and this weekend was really what we needed to let us know we're going in the right direction, especially with the field of drivers we had all three nights," stated Blake.
Hahn's first trip to 34 Raceway on Friday, the win keeps up a trend of Blake winning at new tracks.
"I don't know what it is, but we always seem to roll well when we roll into a track we've never been too and that was the case on Friday. I didn't have another track we could use for reference, so I didn't have any notes to go off, but I just felt comfortable and really, 34 Raceway is an awesome track. Easily the best track I've been too in Iowa because it is a short track and you can move around. I look forward to going back."
Getting the lead on the start, the victory was not an easy one as Blake had to hold off Austin McCarl in lapped traffic, then Seth Bergman on the closing lap of the 30-lap affair.
"That was a tough race. I about gave it away twice in traffic, and thankfully had the track position to hold onto the lead when Austin [McCarl] dove underneath me. The cautions helped there to give me open air and let me settle down a little bit then there at the end, I could hear Seth and I just took a gamble on the slower car moving up off the turn and it worked out."
Taking on Lake Ozark Speedway the next two nights, Hahn finished fifth in both outings.
Qualifying fourth for Saturday's A-Feature, Hahn's outlook was to just finish as the track was blistering fast from the track having taken a massive amount of rain the night before.
"I have to hand it to everyone at Lake Ozark Speedway, they worked their asses off to get that show in. For what they had to deal with, I have not complaints. I was just glad we stayed out of trouble and got through the race in one piece."
Finding a much dryer track on Sunday, Hahn had to dig a little bit after his Heat and Qualifier performance landed him 11th on the grid. Up to fourth at one point, the Sage Fruit, Co. No. 52 ended up fifth after battling with John Carney II in the closing laps. Hahn was the final car on the lead lap.
"Going 40 laps with no cautions with the track as technical as it was, it made things really interesting and the lapped cars made the line deceiving because I was able to roll the bottom and get around, and then all the sudden Carney came around me in the middle. I moved up and tried running his line, but it was too late by then. Overall though, I was really happy with the car and how we did."
Up next on Blake's schedule is the Casey's General Store Fall Brawl at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb. with the Nebraska 360 Series on Saturday, September 7. Races begin at 6:00 P.M. (CT).
The 2019 season is Blake Hahn's 17th year of racing. Starting in Jr. Sprints at the Tulsa Shootout, Hahn has progressed through the ranks with over 90 victories across Micros, Midgets, and Sprint Cars.

Hafertepe Earns Trio Of Top Fives Including Eighth Victory Of 2019 Season

Bryan Hulbert - ELDON, Mo. (September 4, 2019) Taking on three nights with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network across Iowa and Missouri this past Labor Day Weekend, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. cracked off three top-five finishes, including a weekend ending victory at Lake Ozark Speedway.
"It was a good weekend. We had a really good car all three nights. I wish we would have had better track position on Friday, but we made up for it," commented Sam of his overall weekend.
Rolling into 34 Raceway on Friday, Hafertepe played some catchup after finding himself just shy of transferring into the A-Feature. Winning the opening B-Feature convincingly, the feature saw Sam work through the field from 17th to fifth.
"We just needed better track position but that's part of it. We obviously had a really good car in the feature, and we were able to move forward. Just starting so far back, it took a little bit to get there."
Moving to Lake Ozark Speedway, Hafertepe began the weekend with a runner-up finish to Robbie Price. With the track receiving over four-inches of rain the night before, track conditions were tough to navigate.
"With the way the track was on Saturday, we were just happy to get through the race. We actually ended up breaking a right rear radius rod and knocked the front wing down on the car," explained Sam.
"The wing went down on the last restart, and that made it really tough to drive then without about five to go is when we broke the radius rod and it was almost impossible to drive so really, to do all that and still run second, we were happy. I do have to give everyone at that track credit. Most places would have called it, but they kept working and got it in."
Moving to Sunday, sunshine brought the track to what teams normally see when they roll into Lake Ozark Speedway. Positioning the Hills Racing Team No. 15h to the right of the front for the second night in a row, Sam bolted to the race lead and never looked back for 40 non-stop laps.
"That was the race we've been waiting for since we had our crash there on Memorial Day Weekend. We wanted to get that win to rectify what happened and show everyone that we were supposed to win that one too, so I had a lot of pressure on myself to win."
Lapping everyone but the top-five, Sam said the car was actually going away in the latter part of the race.
"We were actually fading a little bit there towards the end. We tried some stuff and ended up wearing the tires a little more than anticipated. Not normally running a 40-lap race and running that hard that early, you don't know how they're going to hold up, but we still had good speed. We were still catching guys in front of us. I think [John] Carney was probably the second fastest car on the track and we were still able to reel him in so I knew we were still alright."
With the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network off until the 9th annual General Tire Hockett/McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway on September 19, 20, and 21, Hafertepe has jumped north of the border to take on the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals at Ohsweken Speedway.
Using this Friday, September 6 as a test and tune for the 15th edition of Canada's premier Sprint Car event, the last time Hafertepe topped the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals was in 2011.
"I have a lot of laps around Ohsweken and I really want to win this one again. We've been really fast there the last couple years and just let things slip away and last year had some other issues, but we're going to use this week to shake the car down and see what we can do."
Racing on Friday, September 6 is presented by Epic Racewear and is the final regular point's night for the track. Races get underway at 7:30 P.M. (ET). The 15th annual Canadian Sprint Car Nationals opens with a Test and Tune on Thursday, September 12 with the event taking place Friday, September 13 and Saturday, September 14 with both nights going green at 7:30 P.M. (ET).
The event will be broadcast live on MAVTV Canada.

"Tough, tough weekend," said Stewart, pilot of the #5 Killer Instinct Crossbows , Weikert's Livestock, Ecynbro Trucking, Nyce, Crete and Landis Block and Concrete, C&S Lawn & Landscape machine. "My guys never gave up. We've had some terrible luck lately. Had issues at Skagit and then we had a great fun at Grays Harbor until we had some issues there in the feature."

Treking south will see the tour hit Williamette Speedway in Lebanon, Ore. on Wednesday, September 4th before invading Silver Dollar Speedway near Chico, Calif. for the annual Gold Cup Race of Champions, a two day show that begins on Friday, September 6th. Stewart won the Gold Cup in 2017.

"Great tracks to go on," Stewart said. "Chico is a fun place to race. It's a tight bullring, which makes it really fun to drive. Gold Cup is still a prestigious event and one that I want to win with the CJB team."

Pokorski Motorsports just misses top-10 at PDTR fair race

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) September 3, 2019 – Paul Pokorski and the Pokorski Motorsports team were in position to tally another top-10 showing in Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Car action at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fair, but a reversal of fortune in the second half of the 25-lap A main dashed those hopes during the 2019 Sheboygan County Fair in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, Aug. 31.

Pokorski was among 34 drivers signing in to compete in the PDTR 360 Sprint Car portion of the all-Sprint Car program, which also featured the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series and a special appearance by retired NASCAR champion Tony Stewart.

After lining up on the inside of the second row of the first PDTR 360 Sprint Car heat race, Pokorski dropped back to fourth on the opening lap before pulling off an impressive move on second lap to power past both Kurt Davis and Sean Rayhall in turn three on lap 3 and vault from fourth to second.

The 2014 MSA Masters Series champion held the runner-up spot for the remainder of the 10-lap race to earn a berth in the 25-lap main event.

“Car was very decent in the heat race,” Pokorski said. “I thought it did everything I wanted it to for the most part and I was pretty happy.”

After starting seventh in the A main, Pokorski found himself in a heated duel with Kurt Davis for eighth on lap 5. Two laps later, Pokorski switched lanes from the low line to the high groove, where he found the going a bit rough.

On lap 11, Tyler Brabant swept past along the low groove to push Pokorski back to 10th in the running order. Adam Miller and Travis Arenz followed as Pokorski fell back to 12th on lap 15.
The lone caution of the race appeared on lap 22 when Chris Clayton spun in turn four. Following the retirement of Justin Miller due to a mechanical problem, Pokorski restarted 11th. The West Bend resident dueled for the 11th spot throughout the final three laps before settling for 12th at the finish line in a race won by Brandon McMullen.

“I screwed up last week and over tightened the car, so I wanted to make sure we didn't do that again,” Pokorski said. “This time we might have been a little bit the other way. I was also a little too quick to give up on running the bottom as soon as somebody challenged me on the top. It was another frustrating result in the end. However, you take the good with the bad and we’ll start working on getting ready for the next one.”

For the second week in a row at Plymouth, Pokorski’s son Alex got a turn behind the wheel of the familiar blue No. 4 machine during hot laps.

“I did enjoy watching Alex hot lap the car,” Pokorski said. “He looked pretty good for the most part with one exception where we all held our breath.”

Pokorski was pleased to see a capacity crowd turn out for the special Sheboygan County Fair race featuring Tony Stewart competing with the IRA. He hopes a few of the dirt-track racing newcomers decide to come back for more PDTR and Midwest Sprint Car Association 360 Sprint Car action after witnessing a great duel for the lead between Kevin Karnitz and Brandon McMullen in the closing laps of the 360 Sprint Car main event.

“It's been a great year for the MSA with all of the rookies, great car counts and some great racing,” Pokorski said. “Saturday night at Plymouth was no exception. I hope it got some people's attention and puts more fans in the stands on a regular basis.”

There are no events scheduled for the PDTR or MSA 360 Sprints Cars this weekend, so the Pokorski Motorsports team will take the weekend off. The next event for the team is Saturday, Sept. 14 at The Plymouth Dirt Track with hot laps slated at 5:30 p.m. and racing scheduled to begin at 6 p.m.

Miller Family Motorsports

PLYMOUTH, WIS.] September 3, 2019; The Miller Family Motorsports teams' were a part of the Sheboygan County Fair this past Saturday night. Both brothers pulled higher pill numbers which placed them starting in the back of their heat races.

Justin started 7th in his heat and finished 3rd which put him into the invert for the nights A-main event. After the dice roll, Justin would start 2nd in the A-main.

Adam pushed off for his heat race starting 8th and he would finish 5th which would place him starting 15th in the A-main.

Both brothers were locked and loaded after their heat races for the A-main event and after track preparations were completed it was once again time to push-off. The field lined up and was given the one-to-go which meant they would go green the next time by. At the start, Adam was quickly on the move and wasted no time getting himself in a spot to finish in the top ten! Justin battled to stay up front where he started and after contact with an infield tire, the front end broke and he would capture his FIRST DNF of the season.

After the final caution of the night waved, Adam found himself knocking on the door for a 9th place and he would capture that spot with one to go and bring home another TOP 10 FINISH!

Looking forward to the weekend ahead the MFM teams' have this weekend off with both the MSA series and PDTR. They will be back in action the following Saturday, September 14th at PDTR.
