Weather Claims Another Win at Tri-City Raceway Park;

No Racing Memorial Day Weekend
 
(Franklin, PA May 22, 2022):  Confronted with saturated grounds and a swampy race track; and facing the prospect of additional rain, high winds, and colder temperatures; Tri-City Raceway Park canceled the Sunday Thunder program scheduled for May 22. Plus, track owner Merle Black has announced that there will be no racing at the Venango County oval over the Memorial Day weekend.
 
“We want our racers and staff to be able to spend the holiday with their families and friends. We are concentrating our energies to be ready for a big event, the finale of the Second Annual Western PA Speedweek.”  
 
The June 4 special will pit the stars and cars of the Shawgo Real Estate 410 Sprints against all comers. Last season, Central PA racer and All Star competitor Bobby Howard took the checkers. Other Central PA racers and some travelers were on hand for the re-launch of the popular mini-series and even more are expected this time.
 
Joining the 410 Sprints will be the Donovan & Bauer Auto Group 358 Modifieds, the 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks, and the RUSH Sprint Cars.
 
“This will be a great way to start our 2022 season,” Black said. “We hope that the weather will cooperate with us so that we will have a big crowd, a great field, and spectacular racing,” he added.
 
Watch the website and social media platforms for any changes.

JOEY ANCONA EARNS FIRST CAREER OCEAN SPRINTS VICTORY

WATSONVILLE, CALIF. (May 21, 2022) – Following a pair of runner-up finishes in 2021 and a string of fast-times and dash wins, 17-year-old Joey Ancona of Concord finally tasted victory in the Ocean Sprints presented by Taco Bravo with his first win Friday night in Watsonville. Six different divisions were in action at Ocean Speedway, located at the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds.

Ancona drove around the outside of dash winner Jake Haulot of Cotati to lead the second lap of the 30-lap feature. Dirt.Travel fast-time winner Justin Sanders advanced from his fourth starting position to challenge Ancona in lapped traffic. The winner of nearly 50 Ocean Sprints features pulled alongside Ancona in turns three and four on lap 10, but his move was blocked by a slower car on the inside. Ancona maintained an advantage over Sanders until a caution fell on lap 23. Justin Sanders’ younger brother Rickey and Haulot crashed for third in turn four.

Ancona restarted with Justin Sanders and over 20-time winner Bud Kaeding in his trail. He was undeterred as he pulled away on the green flag. Two-time 2022 winner Tanner Carrick of Lincoln slowed on the restart with a flat right rear tire.

The lead for Ancona stretched to a few car lengths over the final two laps with Ancona topping Sanders, Kaeding, eighth-starting JJ Ringo, and 11th starting Chase Johnson of Penngrove. 16-year-old Max Mittry of Redding won the B-Main then finished tenth in the feature.

2020 IMCA Sport Mod champion Adrianne Frost won a popular victory in Friday’s Sport Mod feature. Oakley’s Jacob Mallet, Jr. leapt ahead from the pole position. His lead was short lived, however, when he spun in turn two requiring a caution on lap four. Fourth-starting Jonathan Hagio of Prunedale inherited the top spot. The caution flew again on lap nine when Markus Frazier from Santa Maria stopped on the backstretch.

Frost used the restart to show her nose inside of Hagio. Frost moved to the inside in turn two on lap 13 to drive into the lead on lap 14, with a caution flying a lap later for Cody Bryan spinning out. Oakley’s Andrew Pearce drove from his ninth starting position up into second on the restart, then challenged Frost. Pearce went to the outside of Frost but came up short. Forst topped Pearce, Hagio, Mallet, and Tracy’s KC Keller for the win.

San Jose’s Shawn Jones drove from 13th to the winner’s circle in the 20-lap South Bay Dwarf Car feature. Sean Catucci of Brentwood led the first three laps before seven-time 2022 winner Danny Wagner of Baypoint grabbed the point on lap four. Eric Weisler of Campbell spun for a caution on lap five. Jones advanced through the field quickly and emerged in third on the restart. Terre Rothweiler charged to third from the shotgun position on the field as well.

Jones took over the lead on lap 14 for the exciting victory, topping Wagner, Catucci, Marty Weisler, and San Jose’s Mark Biscardi.

The 15-lap Four Banger event opened with a duel between Scotts Valley’s Sean McClelland and Felton’s Nicole Beardsley. Beardsley knifed underneath McClelland to take the lead on lap nine, but the move was nullified when 14-year-old Amaya Flowers of Watsonville and Ryan Bowers of Brookdale collided in turn four to bring out the caution flag.

Beardsley made the maneuver on the restart to grab the lead on lap ten. Jason Lazzerini of Moss Landing entered the picture in the closing laps. Lazzerini moved inside Beardsley exiting turn four on the final lap. The leaders collided, sending Lazzerini sideways across the finish line for the win. Beardsley finished second ahead of McClelland, Kate Beardsley, and Travis VanGilder of Felton.

Chad Ragsdale of Merced topped Jerry Skelton of Watsonville in the Hobby Stock feature. Racing in memory of his wife Renee, Skelton led the first four laps side-by-side with Ragsdale. Ragsdale cleared Skelton for the top spot on lap five.

Joe Gallaher slowed on the front stretch with a flat right rear tire to bring out the yellow flag on lap nine. Ragsdale held off Skelton in a narrow battle to the finish. Wally Kennedy of Freedom, Brady Muller of Santa Cruz, and Gallaher rounded out the top-five.

Kevin Elliott of Scotts Valley PD dominated the 12-lap feature for the Police-in-Pursuit, leading wire-to-wire for the win. Hunter Gaither from Santa Cruz Corrections finished second while John Hohmann of Scotts Valley PD finished third.

Ocean Speedway will be dark on May 27 with racing returning on June 3. Action will include the Ocean Sprints presented by Taco Bravo, IMCA Modifieds, Hobby Stocks, Four Bangers, and South Bay Dwarf Cars.

EDDIE TAFOYA JR. FINISHES FIFTH IN BAKERSFIELD USAC/CRA SPRINT CAR RACE

(Chino Hills, CA, May 20, 2022) Making only his second appearance at the Bakersfield Speedway, Eddie Tafoya Jr. avoided the chaos and placed fifth in the USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series main event last Saturday night. It was his third top-five finish in 2022.
For Tafoya, who makes his home in Chino Hills, California, not only was it his second appearance at the track that is billed as “The West’s Fastest 1/3 Mile High Banked Clay Oval,” but it was his first time there since 2019. His result on Saturday bodes well for the series’ next appearance there on Labor Day weekend.

Twenty-two cars showed up for the race on the Kern County clay oval. When qualifying began, it was obvious that it was a “Cowboy Up” track. Tafoya was the first car out to qualify in the “PBR-Looking” session. His first lap saw him bounce around the edge of the cushion in turn four and ended up at 14.411. On the second lap, he lived up to his “Mr. Smooth” nickname. He kept all four tires on the ground and stopped the clocks over a half-second faster at 13.804. That was right in the middle of the field at 11th fastest.

The Bakersfield crew did their magic on the track when time trials were over and it was much smoother throughout the remainder of the night. Tafoya’s first opportunity to test the reworked surface came in the second 10-lap heat race. The pretty #51T started on the inside of row two and ended up placing fifth.

For the 30-lap feature, Tafoya started on the inside of the sixth row in 11th. By the time the race survived one red flag and the first two yellows on lap seven, the #51T was running in fifth. That was a good thing as throughout the race, the yellow flag halted the action several times and all that trouble was behind him. Tafoya stayed in fifth for the duration and earned his second top-five finish in the last three races.

In two races at Bakersfield in his young career, Tafoya’s consistent driving style has yielded fifth and sixth-place finishes.

Last week’s result allowed Tafoya to maintain his fifth-place standing in the USAC/CRA Series. Going into the next race at Perris Auto Speedway on May 28th, he is only 23-points out of fourth. Through the first nine races of the year, his finishing average is 8.88. However, that included a three-race stretch in the middle portion of his schedule that saw him finish outside the top 10 (including one race at Perris when he was clobbered and had a car destroyed). Take away those uncharacteristic outings and his finishing order in the other six races is an impressive 5.66.

Tafoya and the #51T team would like to thank Specialty Fasteners, DRC Chassis, Ryder Racing Engines, Simpson Safety Products, Bell, Benic Enterprises, BR Motorsports, PSC Powder Coating, Magik Graphics, Gasper Transportation, Owen’s Insurance Services, and Weld Wheels for making the 2022 season possible.

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

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

Brandon Spithaler fills seat for Bryan Grove in full-time All Star effort

ByTyler Altmeyer May 21, 2022

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

EVANS CITY, Pa. (May 21, 2022) – With a full weekend test session already under their belts that was highlighted with a top-ten performance at Wayne County Speedway in Orrville, Ohio, on May 14, it is official that Evans City, Pennsylvania’s Brandon Spithaler is now the full-time ace for Bryan Grove Racing, set to pick up right where Tim Shaffer left off and compete full-time with Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1.

Spithaler, a 20-time feature winner across the winged and non-wing sprint car ranks, is certainly no stranger to All Star Circuit of Champions competition. In his own Brandon Spithaler Racing No. 22, Spithaler competed with “America’s Series” on a full-time basis in 2017 and 2018, highlighting his back-to-back efforts with a sixth-place finish in the 2017 Series standings padded by six top-ten appearances.

“This is an exciting opportunity and I can’t thank Bryan Grove enough for taking a chance on me,” Brandon Spithaler said, now in charge of the Canton Erectors, Ron Jacobs Trucking, No. 28 sprint car. “We had the chance to shake things down last weekend with starts in Michigan and Ohio, and that gave us the opportunity to learn a little bit about each other. To come out of the box and earn a top-ten at Wayne County says a lot about our potential. I’m ready to see what we can do.”

Although he will be forced to miss a few events on the 2022 All Star schedule due to prior work commitments, Spithaler and Bryan Grove Racing will continue their full-time campaign with a pair of starts in Wisconsin beginning later this evening, Saturday, May 21, at the Plymouth Dirt Track, followed by a visit to Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie on Sunday, May 22. Each event, also featuring the IRA Outlaw Sprint Series, will award $6,000 top prizes.

 

BREAKING NEWS: Zach Newlin’s 410 Sprint Car Return Set for Saturday 5/21 at Port Royal
By mraddicted2dirt

Sunday Trip to Path Valley Speedway Also Planned This Weekend

Millerstown, PA – May 20, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Zach Daddy is back.

It has been 61 days since Zach Newlin took a nasty ride at Port Royal Speedway that put him on the sidelines with head and neck injuries. Since that day, appointments, effort and patience have all been vital elements to his return.

Friday night, May 20th, he strapped back in for the first time since that crash. He was aboard the Mansberger Motorsports No.21m 358 sprint car at Williams Grove Speedway. While Newlin has been feeling great on a day to day basis, the goal Friday was to evaluate how he felt in the car, at speed.

All went well. After a 5th place finish in his heat race, Newlin drove from 13th to 7th in the 20-lap A-main. Given his time away and the fact is was the first race of the year for the No.21m, that’s a solid night for sure. The best news though was that Newlin felt 100% normal physically.

During his time away, Newlin parted ways with the Pryde Motorsports No.29 and began working on new opportunities. With Friday’s ‘test’ behind him, it is now time to begin the next chapter.

Zach Newlin will return to 410 sprint car action aboard the BK Motorsports No.k77. The new team will make their debut at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, May 21st. Plans are to also compete at Path Valley Speedway on Sunday, May 22nd.

Newlin is appreciative of the support and concern he has received over the past two months from fans, friends, family and the racing community as a whole.

He is also appreciative of his long time partners who have stuck with him through all the changes the sport brings. The Grove Financial & Associates / Dillman Hauling / Ron’s RV Sales / Kirby Kitner Excavating / Christine Booher, Realtor / T&M Homebuilders / Strange Oval / Walker Performance Filtration / Newlin Bar Service, BK Motorsports No.k77 is ready to roll and Zach Daddy is ready to strap in and get back to work.

CHIARAMONTE MAKES TWO INDIANA MAINS – USAC MIDGETS THIS SATURDAY

(El Cajon, CA, May 18, 2022) Braden Chiaramonte made his first-ever appearance at Indiana’s US 24 Speedway an impressive one by qualifying for two of the three main events in the “All In Transportation A Wingless Clash” micro race last weekend. This Saturday night, May 21st, he will be wheeling Matt Streeter’s USAC Midget in his Ventura Raceway debut.

The journey to Indiana included great racing and heavy rain. Most of all, it pitted Chiaramonte against more than 90 top drivers from 11 different states and Australia. Driving a Hyper house car, the 15-year-old started second in his 10-lap heat race on opening night. However, when the pole sitter jumped the start, the front row was penalized back to row two and Chiaramonte would be coming from fourth instead of second. He advanced one spot during the brief race to finish third.

In his 20-lap qualifier, he started on the outside of row four and advanced the Hyper Racing #95 four spots to finish fourth and earn one of the positions in the 30-lap A main. He started 17th on the inside of the ninth row, and once again he moved forward passing four cars to finish 13th. Of the 94-cars that showed up for the Thursday night opener, only 22 earned one of the coveted main event spots. One of those drivers was Chiaramonte.

Twenty-four hours later, Chiaramonte showed up to battle again. Ninety cars were on hand for the Friday show, and all were aiming to get a hard-to-come by starting spot in the main event. For the second night in a row, Chiaramonte, in the bright orange and gray Hyper Racing #95, was in the eighth, 10-lap heat race. He began the race in the second spot and ended up finishing third. In his 20-lap qualifier, he started fourth and maintained that position throughout. He claimed one of the main event spots for the second night in a row. After starting 20th in the 30-lapper, he again passed four cars to finished 16th.

When all was said and done after two nights, 91 drivers had a chance to start both main events. Chiaramonte was one of only eight to do it!

After heavy rain threatened Saturday’s program, the track crew did an amazing job getting the surface in shape and the cars rolled out for the finale. Chiaramonte was in the first heat where he started sixth and moved forward to finish third. In his 20-lap qualifier, he began in third and finished fifth. That placed Chiaramonte in the Last Chance Qualifier.

For the LCQ, he was starting in fourth and he needed to finish there or better to get into the final main event. It would be a tall order, but if anyone was up to it, it would be the teen who has the cool composure of a 20-year-veteran.

Things got complicated before the LCQ started! When Chiaramonte pulled onto the track the bolt on his shifter broke. So, for restarts, he had to reach out and pull the shift rod by hand. He started 12th and worked his way up to and finished fifth. On the passing points for the week, he fell one point shy of the transfer. However, when he was pulling off the track after the LCQ, he noticed that one of the cars did not go to the scales. Thus, Chiaramonte gained a point and was tied for the final position in the main. Rules determined Thursday’s highest finisher of the tied cars would get the nod. Chiaramonte was 13th and the other car was 11th. Unfortunately, his first racing adventure at US 24 was over.

While in Indiana, Chiaramonte did well and got a lot of attention over the three days. He was impressive enough to get invited to go back to the same track for the three-day “Big Dance” on June 2nd, 3rd, and 4th.

Chiaramonte and his family want to send a big thank you to Hyper Racing’s Jim Radney for making the weekend possible.

Chiaramonte will be right back in action this Saturday night when he makes his second start in Matt Streeter’s #14JR USAC Western States midget at the Ventura Raceway. Last month when he made his midget debut in Streeter’s car at Bakersfield, Chiaramonte surprised everyone at the track. He qualified ninth fastest in the 21-car field, led most of his heat race before finishing second, and ended up 10th in the main.

In addition to it only being Chiaramonte’s second race in a midget, it will be his first-ever appearance at the Ventura Raceway. Located adjacent to the beach on the Ventura County Fairgrounds, the picturesque track is one of the most popular in the country.

For fans who would like to attend Saturday’s show to see Chiaramonte in his Ventura debut, adult tickets are $22.00. Seniors 60 and over, military with id, and students with an id get in for $18.00. Kids 12 and under are free when accompanied by an adult. Spectator gates will open at 3:00 p.m. and the first race will be at 5:30. The track is located on the Ventura County Fairgrounds at 10 W. Harbor Boulevard (93001). The website is http://venturaraceway.com/ and the office phone number is (805) 648-RACE.

Chiaramonte would like to thank the following marketing partners for making his 2022 racing season possible. RTL Traffic Control and Equipment Rentals, AM Ortega, Impact Racing, and AIM Sports Data.

Goldesberry Ready for Big Three Day Weekend

Springfield, IL (May 19,2022) – Jordan Goldesberry and his Rockstar Energy Drink team headed to Knoxville Raceway last weekend to get more laps around the famed track. Last Saturday was Hy-Vee Night at Knoxville so to start the raceday off, the Rockstar Energy Drink team had an appearance at the Knoxville Hy-Vee.

With 34 410 sprint cars checked in, Goldesberry would qualify 21st quick. On a slick racing surface Goldesberry would finish 7th in his heat and have to run the B main. In the 12 lap B main, Goldesberry would lead the first nine laps and go on to finish 2nd and qualify for the feature event. Starting 22nd, the Rockstar Energy Drink car would make good laps and end up pulling in under caution with eight laps remaining.

“Overall, for us we thought we had a successful night at Knoxville. We continue to get the car better every time we are there. I am feeling more comfortable there and learning more how to drive that track. It races differently than any other place we go.” said Goldesberry. “We also had a good event at Hy-Vee showing our Rockstar Energy Drink car.”

This weekend is a big three race weekend in Wisconsin with the All-Star Circuit of Champions. To start things off on Friday, the Rockstar Energy Drink team will be at Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, WI. On Saturday, the team will make the tow north to Plymouth, WI. The weekend will conclude at the famous Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, WI.

“We are looking forward to this weekend. It will be tough competition with the All-Stars but we run pretty well at all three tracks.” said Goldesberry

LITT TO RETURN TO MUST SEE RACING ACTION FOR FIRST TIME SINCE 2019

May 19, 2022 – When the Must See Racing Sprint Series presented by Engine Pro invades Kalamazoo Speedway next weekend, It will do so with a familiar face.

Canadian driver Ryan Litt will be making his North American sprint car start for the first time in three seasons during the May 27-28 American Speed U.S. Nationals. Litt has been unable to cross the Canadian border due to Covid-19 restrictions. Travel to the states has been very difficult for Canadian Citizens due to policies instated by the Canadian government during the height of COVID-19. For Litt, he’s beyond excited to get back behind the wheel of his winged pavement sprint car.

“When COVID-19 first hit I wasn’t too worried about it because I thought it would be over pretty quick” explains Litt. “I got the car ready during that time like I normally do. It got stretched out way longer than anybody anticipated. It didn’t really affect the U.S. too bad because you guys kept racing. Because we couldn’t cross the border, we were pretty much stuck at home. I haven’t even attended a race because everything was shut down up here. It’s been a pretty long wait to say the least. I downloaded FloRacing, DIRTVision, and MAVTV to keep up with everything, but I haven’t been to a track since 2019”.

Despite the lengthy layoff, Litt is confident he can find success during the American Speed U.S. Nationals. Litt did compete in South Africa a few weeks before COVID-19 shut the world down. Kalamazoo Speedway is a track he has found victory lane at previously during his career.

“Kalamazoo is a really small, fast, wide-open track where you’re always turning. You don’t have much of a chance to take a breath. It’s probably gonna feel super-fast for me getting back into it. Its like riding a bike. I’ve been driving sprint cars long enough to know what to expect after a few laps. I like the track. Generally, towards the end of the race there is two grooves. I’m pumped. You always go to win, but if I could finish on the podium both nights, it would be a great start to the season”.

“I have life-long friends in the racing community I haven’t even got to see the past three years. Its gonna be fun to get back and see all my buddies again. I haven’t even got to smell methanol in a few years, so I’m looking forward to that maybe the most” concluded Litt.

The second annual American Speed U.S. nationals kicks off May 27 and will also include the Maxima Racing Oils Midwest Lights Series, the Ohio Wheelman, National Compacts and the MCR Dwarf Cars. The two-day event will conclude the following evening.

The live broadcast will be the “SPEED SPORT Spotlight Event” for the week, and available free for SPEEDSPORT.tv subscribers. Through the month of May, SPEED SPORT is offering special subscription pricing at $14.99/mo or just $99.00 for a full year. Fans can sign up at SPEEDSPORT.tv/subscribe

Tim Kaeding and Bates-Hamilton Racing look to rebound with NARC at Petaluma Saturday

By Gary Thomas

Petaluma, CA…With a busy stretch coming up Tim Kaeding and Bates-Hamilton Racing will head for Petaluma Speedway this Saturday for another night of NARC 410 competition.

Last July saw Kaeding pilot the Teichert Construction/ VinylTech PVC Pipe/ Clow Valve/ BenefitRFP No. 42X to a victory with the Northern Auto Racing Club Fujitsu 410 Sprint Cars at Petaluma Speedway. The 43-year-old hopes to start building some momentum with an aggressive slate of shows on the horizon.

“We look forward to getting back at it in Petaluma on Saturday with the NARC 410 Sprint Cars,” Kaeding commented. “Things are feeling better after the crash last weekend, so we will head for the gumbo to try and get this Bates-Hamilton Racing car up front. The schedule begins to really ramp up the next month, so we definitely want to build some momentum towards that.”

This past weekend saw the BHR team take part in the annual Peter Murphy Classic at Thunderbowl Raceway and Keller Auto Speedway respectively.

Opening night saw the San Jose driver start 18th in the feature and methodically work his way forward over the course of the 30-lap contest. He found himself in ninth place when misfortune struck with just a few circuits remaining, as he got upside down in the second corner.

Coming back on Saturday Kaeding cut an excellent lap in qualifying to time-in fourth fastest among the 31-car field, but got over the curb during the second circuit, which sent him upside down in turn four. After feeling pain in his back the decision was made to play it smart and pull off after taking the green flag in the feature.

“Last weekend ultimately didn’t turn out in our favor, although we did have a good run going Friday, coming forward in the feature until the crash,” Kaeding said. “On Saturday I was able to cut a solid lap in qualifying but just got over the ledge in turn four on the second time by. I was experiencing some back pain, so decided it was best to fall towards the rear and just pull in after the race got underway.”

This Saturday’s NARC Fujitsu 410 Sprint Car event at Petaluma Speedway will see tickets available at the gate. FloRacing will also be providing live coverage for those who can’t make it to the track. Going into the evening Kaeding occupies 10th place in the series standings.

Bates-Hamilton Racing would like to thank Teichert Construction, VinylTech PVC Pipe, Clow Valve, BenefitRFP, Dan Ewart Sales, B Scadden Design, Advanced Drainage Systems, Custom Pipe and Fabrication, Tigre, North Bay Waterworks, SIP, Star Pipe Products, Kaeding Performance, Kistler Engines, Maxim Chassis, Bell Helmets, K1 Race Gear, Warehouse Paint, Arbo Tech, Performance Powder Coating, Sellers Race Wings, Rod Tiner Racing, ART Enterprises, Tiner-Hirst Enterprise and Vanlare Steering Repair for their support this season.

Henderson Overcomes Mechanical Failure at Knoxville to Earn Podium Finish at Huset’s

Brandon, SD – May 18, 2022

by Justin Snyder, Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Justin Henderson highlighted a two-race weekend behind the wheel of the Mike Sandvig Motorsports No. 7 410 Sprint Car with a third-place finish on Sunday at Huset’s Speedway. He also scored a 22nd-place finish on Saturday at Knoxville Raceway following late-race mechanical issues that spoiled what appeared to be a promising night.

“We’ve got a ton of speed at Knoxville, and it shows every time we are there, but we can’t have nights like Saturday if we want to win a championship,” said Henderson. “Overall, it was a good weekend and I’m happy with the way the car feels. We’re going to find victory lane sooner than later.”

Henderson kicked off the weekend on Saturday at Knoxville Raceway where he qualified seventh quickest among 34 cars in attendance with a fastest lap of 16.318 seconds. He then advanced one position in a heat race to finish fourth and locked himself directly into the night’s A-main event.

“We’re continuously fast to start the night and we’re putting ourselves in a good position to be competitive,” he said. “That’s what you need to be successful and it’s nice to know you don’t need to worry too much about getting into shows.”

Lining up from the outside-third row starting spot for the feature, Henderson quickly advanced to the fourth position on lap two. After a multi-lap battle for the position with fifth-place driver Austin McCarl, he settled into fourth over the first half of the event. Following a restart with eight laps to go, he slipped back to fifth, but with two laps remaining he was able to advance back to fourth. Entering turn one on the following circuit, he broke a steering arm and was unable to control the car, so he came to a stop against the outside guardrail. He would not rejoin the field and as a result he was credited with finishing in 22nd.

“I don’t think we had anything for the top two guys on the track, so we were running right around where we were supposed to be in terms of speed,” said Henderson. “Unfortunately, we broke the steering arm there on the last lap and I lost brakes and couldn’t control the car at all. It stinks to see a top five go away there with only three turns remaining, but overall, we know that we had a pretty good car and aren’t far off in terms of competing for wins.”

The team next headed to Huset’s Speedway on Sunday, where Henderson qualified eighth quickest out of 26 cars in attendance with a fastest lap of 11.065 seconds before finishing where he started – second – in a heat race, He earned a spot in the re-draw as a result and drew the No. 6 pill to claim an outside-third row starting spot for the feature.

On a track that took rubber near the halfway point of the feature, Henderson was unable to mount any real charge to the front of the field. However, he was able to capitalize in key moments to advance three positions throughout the duration of the A-main to earn a third-place finish and a spot on the podium. The top five finish was the team’s third of the season in six total starts.

“It was really hard to get up speed early in the night as it was pretty slick,” he said. ” I found the rubber pretty quick in the feature and I stayed there most the race. I was able to pick up a few spots, but by then everyone was just locked to the bottom going as fast as we could go. Everybody is racing on equal terms, so I can’t really complain about the night, and I’ll take the third.”

Next up for Henderson and Sandvig will be another weekend doubleheader at Knoxville Raceway on Saturday and Huset’s Speedway on Sunday. Following last weekend’s disappointment at Knoxville, Henderson sits third in the track point standings. Meanwhile at Huset’s, Henderson sits in second in the standings and trails first by a mere 12 points.

Henderson also plans to compete for $3000 on Friday at Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minnesota in his own MAX Motorsports No. 83 360 Sprint Car and again at Knoxville on Saturday. If he can sweep the weekend in the 360 division, there is an added $3000 bonus on the line as well.

“This is a big weekend for us, and I look forward to it every year,” said Henderson. “Anytime I can get extra laps in my car it can only benefit me in Mike’s car. In recent season’s we have been really fast in the 360 division, so I’m hoping that we can pick up a few wins and some extra money this weekend and hopefully that will rub off on the 410 sprint car side of things too.”

Starks Excited for Skagit Speedway Season Opener This Sunday

Inside Line Promotions - PUYALLUP, Wash. (May 18, 2022) - Trey Starks is invading Skagit Speedway this Sunday during the track's season opener.

Starks plans on racing more regularly at the high-banked oval in Alger, Wash., which showcases 10 nights of 360ci winged sprint car competition - including weekend - as well as eight nights for 410ci winged sprint cars this year.

"Skagit is one of our home tracks and I'm excited to see the improvements and investment from the new owners," he said. "Steve Beitler did a good job for many years and it's great to see that next step forward this year. We hope to race there as often as we can in both the 360 and 410."

Starks is aiming to capture the track's season opener for the first time in his career this Sunday. He previously picked up the season-opening win at Grays Harbor Raceway in Elma, Wash., last month.

"Winning at Grays Harbor gave us that added confidence after a long offseason," he said. "The goal is always to win every time we show up to a track. It'd certainly be special to be able to win the season opener at both Grays Harbor and Skagit, but there will be a lot of talented drivers there on Sunday. We just need to worry about what we can control and try to put ourselves in contention."

Starks earned three podiums, four top fives and nine top 10s at Skagit Speedway last year.

Bloomsburg And Selinsgrove Make Up This Weekend’s Double Racing Bill

The River Valley Builders PA Sprint Series will begin this weekend on Thursday (May 19) with a rare weeknight show at the Bloomsburg Fair Speedway, then move to its most-often-visited 2022 track, Selinsgrove Speedway, for more action Saturday night (May 21).

Thursday’s race will be the second for PASS at the beautiful Bloomsburg track, built last year inside the horse-racing facility that also held auto races through the years. The IMCA/RaceSaver cars visited last season for an event co-sanctioned by three regional RaceSaver series, and Zack Bealer of the Mid Atlantic Sprint Series took home the win. PASS is scheduled to appear at Bloomsburg again this year on July 13.

This race will feature the World of Outlaws Late Models with River Valley Builders PASS as the supporting class.

Pit gates will open at 4:00 p.m., with grandstands opening at 5:00, and racing scheduled to begin at 7:00.

Saturday’s race will be the second this year for PASS at Selinsgrove; the last time the series was scheduled to race, rain had other ideas. This time fans will be able to watch both winged and wingless sprints, as the USAC East Coast Wingless 360 Sprints join PASS for the program, which also features limited late models and roadrunner stocks.

Hometown driver Ken Duke Jr. won the year’s first PASS stop when apparent winner Kruz Kepner was light at the postrace scales. Both those drivers should return this Saturday, but it will be hard to bet against defending PASS Champion Garrett Bard of Wells Tannery, who has won seven of the previous 15 PASS events on the big Snyder County oval.

Racing at Selinsgrove is scheduled to begin at 7:00 p.m.

A&A Auto Stores is sponsoring the Family Night program, which features free general admission for students.

Memorial Day Weekend will bring a tripleheader for PASS fans, with the River Valley Builders RaceSavers running a special Thursday night program at Selinsgrove, plus a Friday race at Clinton County Speedway (co-sponsored with the Laurel Highlands Sprint Series), and Saturday night racing at Port Royal Speedway.

Sides Motorsports Welcomes Robbie Price as New Driver

Inside Line Promotions - SWEDESBORO, N.J. (May 18, 2022) - Sides Motorsports is pleased to announce that Robbie Price will fill the seat for the remainder of the 2022 season.

Car owner Jason Sides will still travel with the team, serving as the crew chief and a driver coach throughout the remainder of the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series schedule. The new pairing will be in action this Friday at Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio, and Saturday at Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio.

"We're excited to have Robbie on board," Sides said. "He's a guy a lot like myself, willing and able to do whatever it takes to get from track to track. He's worked on his racing equipment throughout his career and has had success while competing along the West Coast and in the Midwest."

Price, who hails from Cobble Hill, British Columbia, Canada, is the youngest Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup feature winner in the history of the marquee event hosted by Skagit Speedway in Alger, Wash. He conquered it in 2019 at the age of 21-years-old when it was an ASCS National Tour race.

The 2017 Skagit Speedway track champion has earned at least one feature victory during each of the last three seasons and in six of the last seven years.

While Price grew up racing in the Northwest, he's no stranger to competing in the middle of the country. He tackled the ASCS National Tour as a full-time driver in 2019, placing eighth in the championship standings following a pair of triumphs.

"Everybody wants to go Outlaws racing," he said. "I'm excited for the opportunity. I'm going into it with an open mind, but it's hard to have too many expectations until I'm out there. I haven't really raced this year. We've only done two races, which were both last weekend.

"I'm not afraid to work on stuff. Jason obviously knows what he's doing and has been doing it a lot longer. I've been doing it the same way he does; just you and another guy and make it happen."

Tim Shaffer piloted the car last Saturday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., and Tuesday at Bridgeport Motorsports Park.

"I want to thank Tim for stepping in to drive the last couple of races," Sides said. "Tim is a good friend and it was fun getting to race with him for a couple of nights before we transitioned full time with Robbie behind the wheel."

QUICK RESULTS -

May 14 - Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa. - Qualifying: 11; Heat race: 8 (6); B Main: 14 (10).

Dominic Scelzi Sweeps KWS/NARC Portion of Peter Murphy Classic for Second Straight Year

Inside Line Promotions - HANFORD, Calif. (May 18, 2022) - Dominic Scelzi continued his recent success during the Peter Murphy Classic by sweeping the King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series action last weekend.

Scelzi was victorious on Friday at Thunderbowl Raceway and Saturday at Keller Auto Speedway. He also posted results of second on Friday and fourth on Saturday in a 360ci winged sprint car during Sprint Car Challenge Tour competition at each track.

"We went in there and won the two races that really, really matter," he said. "We won the two 410 races and that helped give us a good cushion in points."

There are still areas to nitpick for Scelzi, who qualified ninth quickest on Friday and seventh on Saturday during 410 action.

"We didn't qualify very well either night and that has us a little frustrated," he said. "I would have hoped we would have qualified better, but we raced phenomenal in the 410 both nights."

Scelzi won a heat race, placed fourth in the dash and advanced from fourth to earn his first King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series win of the season on Friday at the bullring in Tulare, Calif.

"We got to third pretty quick and then into second about 10 laps in," he said. "I felt I was about even with Shane (Golobic). Halfway through the race I started gaining through turns three and four. We got into a little bit of traffic with 10 laps to go and he didn't get through it the way he wanted. I had a really big run and slid him into turn three and cleared him with about seven laps to go."

Scelzi enjoyed a charge from further back on Saturday when he placed fourth in a heat race before hustling from 12th to capture the feature victory.

"The track got really slick and that made me feel better knowing there was opportunity," he said. "I got to third pretty quick and felt I was as good or better than Corey Day and Justin Sanders. The track was starting to take rubber so I went into conserve mode because of how hard I had used my tires getting to third. Corey started struggling in traffic and missed the rubber off turn two. Sanders slid him and they ended up crashing. I was barely back enough to miss them. After inheriting the lead I rode off into the sunset and tried not to slip out of the rubber the last 10 laps."

It paid off for Scelzi, who earned the $11,000 top prize and his fourth career series win at the track.

Scelzi was also a contender in the Sprint Car Challenge Tour event each night. He qualified second quickest before winning a heat race, placing second in the dash and ending second in the main event on Friday at Thunderbowl Raceway.

"I was good all night until the feature," he said. "I fell back to seventh or eighth and didn't get going until around Lap 12. I trunked the top wing and started pounding the fence. We got back to second. I was passing for the lead and a yellow came out. That ruined my chances because we had found the best line and the leader hadn't."

Scelzi had similar success on Saturday at Keller Auto Speedway, qualifying second quickest, winning a heat race, placing sixth in the pole shuffle and capping the night with a fourth-place finish in the feature.

"In the main we struggled getting grip," he said. "I had to get my wing back right away and we floundered between fifth to seventh. I had a late charge and we got to fourth."

The next King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series event is Saturday at Petaluma Speedway in Petaluma, Calif. Scelzi enters with a 21-point lead in the championship standings after four races.

WORLD OF OUTLAWS SPRINT CARS SET FOR 1ST OF 2 APPEARANCES AT SHARON IN 2022 THIS SATURDAY NIGHT 

 May 18, 2022

By Mike Leone

(Hartford, OH)…After a wildly successful return after 14 years, Sharon Speedway is ready to welcome back the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series to its 3/8-mile red clay oval this Saturday night (May 21) for the first of two appearances during the 93rd anniversary season! Joining the World of Outlaws will be the Gibson Insurance Agency Pro Stocks. Warmups are scheduled for approximately 6:30 p.m. with qualifying and racing to follow.

Prior to last year's thriller won by Dave Blaney in spectacular fashion over Sheldon Haudenschild, "The Greatest Show on Dirt" last appeared at Sharon on June 1, 2007 when the "King of the Outlaws", Steve Kinser, scored the victory. Kinser leads the way at Sharon with four WoO wins, while Danny Lasoski is the only other repeat winner with victories in 2002 and 2004. Besides Blaney, who owns 34 career "410" wins at Sharon, other single WoO winners at Sharon include Jac Haudenschild (2006), Jason Meyers (2005), and Joey Saldana (2002). Blaney's win last year was his 95th career WoO win, but first since 1997!

Heading into this weekend's two-race swing in Ohio with $10,000 to-win on the line at both Attica Raceway Park and Sharon, defending and three-time WoO Champion, Brad Sweet, sits atop the points. Sweet though has just one win in 2022 and his points lead has shrunk to 20 over two-time winner David Gravel. Carson Macedo leads the Series with four wins and is third in points over Sheldon Haudenschild, who won his third race of the year on Tuesday night at Bridgeport (NJ) Speedway. Completing the top 10 in points with wins in parentheses are Logan Schuchart (1), Spencer Bayston (1), Donny Schatz (1), James McFadden, Jacob Allen (2), and Brock Zearfoss.

Other World of Outlaws that will be on hand include Kasey Kahne, who recently returned from an injury that sidelined him, Kraig Kinser, rookie Noah Gass, Bill Rose, and Canadian Robbie Price, who has taken over the seat in Jason Sides' #7s. Former WoO racer, Ian Madsen, will be behind the wheel of the locally-owned Demyan/Rudzik #49 team. Californian Rico Abreu will also be in action. Central Pennsylvania star, Brent Marks, who has two WoO wins this season, is also expected. The World of Outlaws will return for a second visit on Saturday, September 24.

Cap Henry opened the season at Sharon on April 30 winning the $6,500 All Star Circuit of Champions show for his second career Sharon win; however, Mother Nature has taken the checkered flag the last two Saturday nights for the non-sanctioned "Super Series" events.

The following drivers will be eligible the Mobile Bail Bonds "Bounty Hunter" Bonus: Carl Bowser, Steve Bright, Bob Felmlee, A.J. Flick, Ryan Fredericks, Darin Gallagher, George Hobaugh, Adam Kekich, Arnie Kent, Dan Kuriger, Brandon Matus, Brent Matus, Logan McCandless, Nathen McDowell, Darren Pifer, Russ Sansosti, Jeremy Weaver, Eric L. Williams & Randy Wyant. If one of those racers can defeat the World of Outlaws, the driver will earn a $1,000 bonus; if not, the highest finishing eligible driver will receive a $150 bonus. The posted bonuses will continue throughout 2022 at the All Stars and World of Outlaws events.

The competitive Gibson Insurance Agency Pro Stock division will be making their season debut on Saturday night and racing for $750 to-win. Sharon has the highest average weekly car count of any regional speedway running the Stocks, but also boasts the highest payoff. Curt J. Bish won the last two track championships and now owns six career wins including the 2019 $10,000 "Steel Valley Pro Stock Nationals". Alan Dellinger, who still competes part-time, sits atop the division's all-time win list with 66. Steve D'Apolito's 32 wins are the next highest amongst active racers.

Summit Racing Equipment will present the hard charger award on Saturday night to the Pro Stock division. The driver that passes the most cars in the feature will receive a $100 Summit gift card. In the event of a tie, the tiebreaker will be the driver that finished highest in the feature.

There is no Sharon registration fee for the Pro Stocks. One-way driver radios are mandatory; channel 454.000. AMB/MyLaps transponders are required; rentals available for $25. If you have yet to register for the 2022 season, please bring the registration form with you completed http://sharonspeedway.myracepass.com/downloads/get.aspx?i=713060

Fans can not only experience viewing from the frontstretch and backstretch grandstands, but also from the infield fan zone, which includes concessions and restrooms. Sharon is the only track in the area to have viewing from the unique infield perspective. There will be times throughout the night when fans can cross on the frontstretch back and forth.

Pit passes will go on sale at 2 p.m. with grandstands opening at 4 p.m. General admission for those 13 and over is $35 in advance and $39 on Saturday, while reserve tickets are $39 in advance and $42 on Saturday for all ages.

Joel Myers Jr Eager for Petaluma Homecoming on Saturday Night

PETERSEN MEDIA: Saturday night the King of the West Series makes a visit to Petaluma Speedway, and for Joel Myers Jr he hopes some home cooking will help him build some momentum with a busy stretch of the schedule on the horizon.

“We have taken some lumps and had some growing pains early in the season, but looking back at last week, I felt really good on Saturday night before we had a part failure and I am hoping we can match that this weekend in Petaluma, CA,” Myers Jr said.

Born and raised in nearby Seabastopol, CA, Petaluma Speedway is a special place for the 16-year-old driver as he grew up going to the speedway cheering on his hero’s and cut his teeth in a winged car at the bay area speed plant the last few years.

Running a pair of 410ci events at the Speedway in 2021, Myers Jr had very good results. While running with Phulps Motorsports, the then 15-year-old was large and in charge out front and looked poised to pick up his first career win only to endure an issue in lapped traffic that knocked him out of competition.

Later in the season, Myers Jr was aboard his family-owned car when he earn Fast Time honors before landing on the podium with a third place finish.

“Heading back to Petaluma Speedway this weekend knowing that I ran well in two different cars last year really does give me confidence as we head there with the Vertullo Motorsports team,” Joel Myers Jr said. “We have a lot of races upcoming, and if we can pick up a good finish this weekend, I think it will go a long way for us.”

Joel Myers Jr Racing would like to thank Starr Property Management, Morrison Concrete, Hi-Plains Building Division, PitStopUSA, G&N Construction, System 1 Ignition, Dirt Dudes, Weld, Smith Ti, Y2K Gaming, Shark Racing Engines, Lucas Oil, Vaider, L Delo Designs, Walker Performance Filtration, ShopRico.Com, Tiner Hirst Enterprise, Kaeding Performance, Ogio, All About Fire Protection, and Triple X Race Co. for their continued support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts- 19, Wins-0, Top-5’s- 5, Top-10’s-6

Nienhiser Charges to 7th During Rain Shortened Feature at Jacksonville Speedway

Brendon Bauman Photo

PETERSEN MEDIA: With his early season schedule getting cancelled due to rain, it was only fitting that Paul Nienhiser’s first event of the season would ultimately get cut short due to an untimely shower drenching the Speedway midway through the feature event.

“I can’t seem to shake this late spring rain,” Paul Nienhiser said with a smile. “It was our first night out with a new car, and we still have some work to do but it was a really good first night. I think we had a car that was capable of winning, but with only running 11 laps, we didn’t get to see what it had late in the feature.”

Lining up sixth in his heat race, Nienhiser would get a good feel for his CAM2 Lubricants/Buffalo Wild Wings/Innovative Design backed No. 9x however he would contact the wall and cause damage to his rear end which led to a tip-over as he finished fifth.

Advancing to the feature event, the Chapin, IL driver lined up in the 13th starting position after repairing the minor damage from the heat race rollover. When the race went green, Nienhiser showcased a strong entry as he began working his way forward.

Turning in the fastest lap of the race on the seventh lap, Nienhiser would make his way into the Top-10 as he took over the seventh position just before the caution flag flew on the 11th lap.

With everyone bunched back up, Nienhiser had hopes of continuing this charge through the field, however Mother Nature had other ideas as rain began falling, forcing officials to cancel the remainder of the race.

“It was a bummer getting rained out, because not only did we have a really good car in the feature event, we also were starting on the front row of the 305ci race,” Nienhiser said.

Sunday the team made the trip to Brandon, SD where they would check in at Huset’s Speedway.

On top of the nine-hour commute, things got dicey Nienhiser about three hours from the track. Dealing with a case of food poisoning, Nienhiser would still go about his business though felt extremely under the weather.

“On top of feeling horrible most of the day Sunday, Scott Bonar had an accident in the pit area that left him injured, and made our night that much more eventful,’ Nienhiser said.

Despite the ill effects of Food Poisoning, Nienhiser would make the best of a really bad situation as he timed his mount in sixth fastest in qualifying time trials.

Running fourth during his heat race, Nienhiser admittedly made a couple of bad decisions that saw him fall back to a fifth-place finish which subsequently kept him out of the all important redraw.

Lining up 10th in the feature, the track would quickly take rubber and make for a tough feature event. With passing very limited, Nienhiser settled into 12th where he would go on to finish and cap off a very long day.

“With all things considered, we will gladly take a 12th place finish,” Nienhiser said. “With not racing for seven months, it was a pretty good weekend despite getting sick, and having Scott get hurt. We will take this weekend off to let everyone recover and get back after it soon.”

Nienhiser would like to thank CAM2 Lubricants, Buffalo Wild Wings, Innovative Design, Mason Sound, Bradshaw Custom Pumping, Signature Signs & Design, Sunstoppers Window Tinting, American Rental Center, Fierce Herbicide, Guse’s Pub & Eatery, Wessler Bros Agency, Willhite Mowing, T&K Tree Services, Engler Machine and Tool, FK Indy, Rider Racing Engines, Midland Performance, Simpson Race Products, Smith Titanium, and Premier Powder Coating for their continued support.

Nienhiser would also like to thank Midland Performance, Kinney Racing Engines, Rockstar Wraps, Heartland Trailer Manufacturing, Robert’s Tire Center, and Stronghurst Collision for their support of the No. 50 car.

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

ON TAP: Nienhiser is TBD on his next event.

John Padjen Kids Bike Night up next for Placerville Speedway on Saturday

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA…The El Dorado County Fairgrounds based Placerville Speedway is delighted to host one of its more anticipated events of the season, with the annual John Padjen “Kids Bike Night” set to occur this Saturday.

All kids 11 and under receive free admission during John Padjen Kids Bike Night. As is tradition, children in attendance are invited to race their bikes on the track following heat race competition. Those competing in the races must wear a helmet. Kids on hand will also receive a free kiddie popcorn and soda, along with having a chance win a new bike.

“This is always a great show for the kids and families to come out and enjoy a night of racing at Placerville Speedway,” commented Russell Motorsports Inc. President Scott Russell. “Kids Bike Night has been one of the long-standing events here and we’re happy to allow those 11 and under into the races for free on Saturday. When it comes to the future of our sport the younger generation is extremely important, so we hope everyone can bring their kids and maybe even some of their friends this weekend.”

This Saturday is also our way to remember former track Promoter John Padjen, who passed away in December. It was Padjen’s idea that brought about Kids Bike Night, which continues to be a mainstay at both Placerville Speedway and Chico’s Silver Dollar Speedway to this day.

“John always had Kids Bike Night at West Capital Raceway, so he decided to bring that over to Placerville and Chico when he started running both venues,” said past Placerville Speedway Promoter Alan Padjen. “The bike nights have always been a hit with the families. It’s great that Placerville Speedway continues that tradition and it’s a perfect event to remember my dad at.”

In the early 1980’s, John Padjen came aboard Placerville Speedway to help rescue the community icon that was beginning to struggle in the way of management efforts.

Already a successful motorsports promoter in Sacramento, Dixon and Chico, Padjen moved in and helped mold the foothill race facility into the successful, competitive track it is today. Padjen established a consistent Saturday night program to improve safety and visibility for both drivers and fans. He also chose to change the name of the track from “Hangtown” to Placerville Speedway, so the sport became more associated with the community.

Tackling the high banked quarter-mile this Saturday will be the Thompson’s Family of Dealerships Winged 360 Sprint Cars, the Mtn. Democrat Ltd. Late Models, the Red Hawk Casino Pure Stocks and Dwarf Cars. Auburn’s Andy Forsberg, Diamond Springs’ Dan Jinkerson and Oakley’s Nick Baldwin sit atop the Sprint Car, Late Model and Pure Stock standings respectively going into the final point race until June 25th.

John Padjen Kids Bike Night marks the second appearance of the season for the colorful coupes of the Nor-Cal Dwarf Car Association. Colfax driver Ben Wiesz captured the first visit on April 30th.

Adult tickets for this Saturday May 21st cost $18 while seniors 62+, military and juniors 12-17 will be $16. As noted, all kids 11 and under are free. Purchase tickets online at https://www.eventsprout.com/event/points-race-8 or at the gate on race day.

Grandstand seating is general admission at each event, except for the reserved seats marked for season ticket holders. Please note if patrons sit in a reserved seat, they may be asked to move. Pit passes can be purchased at the pit gate or on Pit Pay to take advantage of the expanded seating area on the hill.

The pit gate will open at noon, with the front grandstand gate opening at 3pm. Happy Hour is offered from 4-6pm in the grandstands featuring live music along with discounted Coors Light and Coors Original at the beer booth. The pit meeting will be held at 4:30pm with cars on track at 5:15. Hot laps, ADCO Driveline qualifying and racing will follow.

The Placerville Speedway is located on the beautiful El Dorado County Fairgrounds in Placerville, California. Take Hwy US-50 to Forni Road/Placerville Drive exit.

Alex Pokorski adjusts to new Akright Auto Racing Team surroundings in MSA double dip

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) May 17, 2022 – After foregoing last week’s 2022 season opener to attend to his college master’s degree program obligations at Concordia University of Wisconsin, third-year 360 Sprint Car driver Alex Pokorski spent the majority of a Midwest Sprint Car Association doubleheader weekend of action at The Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, May 14 and Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wis. on Sunday, May 15 searching for comfort and consistency behind the wheel of his new No. 4 Akright Auto Racing Team machine.

After his father, Paul, steered Alex’s Akright Auto Racing Team car to a 10th-place showing in the Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Car A main at The Plymouth Dirt Track on Saturday, May 7, it was Alex’s turn to make his debut in the Spyder Akright-owned No. 4 ride with stellar field of 33 PDTR 360 Sprint Cars signed in at The Plymouth Dirt Track on Saturday, May 14.

In PDTR 360 Sprint Car group qualifying, Pokorski turned in the 27th fastest time with a lap of 13.935 seconds. After lining up eighth in the second 10-lap 360 Sprint Car heat race, Pokorski moved past Dylan Winkel to take over seventh on the opening lap. Pokorski maintained the position over the remaining nine laps to secure a seventh-place heat race finish.

Needing to finish in the top six to earn a transfer spot to the 25-lap PDTR 360 Sprint Car A main, Pokorski started sixth in the 15-lap PDTR 360 Sprint Car B Main and found himself running fifth following a yellow flag restart on lap 5.

After dueling with Chris Larson two laps, Pokorski maintained fifth in the running order until lap 10 when Larson and Blake Wondra worked past Pokorski, who slipped to seventh, one spot out of an A-main transfer spot.

Pokorski maintained his composure and battled back to work underneath Wondra to steal the sixth and final A-main transfer spot with a nifty move in turn one on the 15th and final circuit. Pokorski held on to place sixth and advance to his first PDTR 360 Sprint Car A main of the 2022 season.

After starting 22nd in the 25-lap main event, Pokorski worked the low groove in the first portion of the race. However, he found passing to be difficult along the inside line. On lap 20, Pokorski ventured up to the high groove to work his way around Preston Ruh into the 21st position, which is where he finished the non-stop race, which was won by Travis Arenz.

“On Saturday at Plymouth, we started pretty far away from what we want the car to do and we got a lot closer as the night went along,” Pokorski said. “The B main was a fun race back and forth for the last few transfer spots. In the A main, starting in the back is always tough. I think I spent too long trying to make the bottom work, but when I moved to the top, I was able to keep pace with the leaders.”

On Sunday, May 16, Pokorski and the Akright Auto Racing Team ventured to Angell Park in Sun Prairie, Wis. for an Akright Auto Parts Midwest Sprint Car Association event, which attracted a 16-car field to the historic venue.

Pokorski started fifth in the first 10-lap MSA heat race before dropping back to seventh on lap 2 when Jack Vanderboom and Travis Arenz slipped past. On lap 5, Pokorski advanced to fifth when Travis Arenz dropped out with a broken axle and race leader Katelyn Krebsbach retired to the pit area with motor issues.

Pokorski went on to finish fifth on the narrow, undulating third-mile clay oval racing surface.

The West Bend driver rolled off ninth in the 25-lap MSA A main and found himself running 11th at the half-way mark of the race. With passing at a premium on the tricky track surface, Pokorski advanced to 10th after ducking underneath Tyler Davis in turn two on lap 19.

However, on the next circuit, Pokorski drifted high in turn four and hit the front stretch wall, which forced him to stop on the track to bring out the race’s lone caution flag. The damage was too extensive for Pokorski to return to the race as he was scored 15th in a race won by Kurt Davis.

“Like Plymouth, I think we had a similar adjustment period at Angell Park, but the car felt good for the feature,” Pokorski said. “That was the roughest track I’ve raced on and it eventually got the better of me when I got out of shape off the cushion in turn four and slapped the wall. We tweaked the Jacob's ladder and bent the front axle as well.”

Pokorski and the Akright Auto Racing Team will return to action with the Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Cars this Saturday, May 21, as part of the fifth-ever appearance of the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions 410 Sprint Car Series at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. in conjunction with the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series.

Spectator gates open at 3:30 p.m. with on-track action slated to begin at 5:30 p.m. for the all-Sprint Car event, which will be streamed live on FloRacing.

Ballou Back in USAC Victory Lane with Strong Showing at I-70

PETERSEN MEDIA: Robert Ballou has been hitting his stride in recent weeks, and this past weekend everything came together. Charging to second on Thursday night during a non-stop affair at Lakeside Speedway, Ballou put together a dominant performance on Saturday at I-70 Motorsports Park to pick up his first win of the 2022 season.

“We have been close all year long, and the last few times out I have felt really good,” Ballou said. “To get a win early in the season is huge, and it is a testament to all the hard work we have put in over the off season in the shop, and in the gym.”

Making the trip to the Missouri for a scheduled triple-header, action kicked off on Thursday night at Lakeside Speedway where Ballou showed solid speed early as he earned quick time honors aboard the Suburban Subaru/Deaton’s Waterfront Service/Berks Western Telecom Inc. backed No. 12 mount.

Lining up sixth in his heat race, the Rocklin, CA native turned Tipton, IN resident continued his strong start to the season as he made some big time moves to net a second-place finish and keep himself in the feature event inversion.

Lining up sixth in the feature event, Ballou would ride around during the opening laps as he battled a car that was a tick on the tight side. As the fuel load burned off, ‘The Mad Man’ would begin his pursuit to the front.

Making a couple big moves, Ballou would get into second as he then attempted to track down Brady Bacon who had worked his way out to over a six second lead.

Needing a caution to bunch the field back up, Ballou would not have that luck on this night as the feature would go from green the checkered and he would pick up his second consecutive runner-up finish with the USAC National Sprint Car Series.

Following Friday’s rainout, the weekend would come to a close on Saturday night as the series invaded the re-vamped I-70 Motorsports Park.

Timing in fifth fastest on Saturday night, Ballou would run fourth in his heat race to secure his place inside the feature event inversion. Putting his machine on the front row, Ballou would lead the field to green alongside Mario Clouser.

While Clouser would lead the opening lap, Ballou made a big move to get the lead and promptly left the field in his wake as he began setting a torrid pace and opening up his advantage.

Out front Ballou was able to set a pace that nobody was able to keep up with, however getting into traffic would slow him and allow Brady Bacon to close in on him.

On lap 21, Bacon was able to make a move on Ballou in three and four while he he dealt with traffic, but in turns one and two Ballou answered back to reclaim the top spot and pull away just as he did on lap two.

Out front, Ballou would not be denied on this night as he was able to break Bacon’s streak and claim his first USAC National Series win of the season, and his first win in nearly a calendar year.

“I have said all year long it was going to be the Bacon/Ballou show and these last three races have been exactly that,” Ballou said. “Brady was really good on Thursday, and he was good again on Saturday night, but I wanted it a little bit more. It was a fun weekend, and I am glad to get my guys a win. We have some more work to do to get our car a little better, but I am having a lot of fun in a racecar again, and it has been a while since I could say that.”

Robert Ballou would like to thank Suburban Subaru, Deaton’s Waterfront Service, Rossie Feed and Grain, Berks Western Telecom, Inc., Dan Roberts Motorsports, Dragonfly Aviation, Hinchman Indy, Don Ott Racing Engines, Manvel Motorsports, CSI Shocks, Walker Performance Filtration, Amsoil Inc, Murray’s Body Shop, Pacific Grass and Turf, MPHG Promotions Inc, Team Jack Foundation, Olson Custom Design, Konnected Clothing, Hooker Harness, Indy Race Parts, Hoosier Tire, Schoenfeld Headers, ISC Racers Tape, Chalk Racing Products, Keizer Aluminum Wheels, Saldana Racing Products, Moose Blocks, Inc., AO Designs, and Arai Helmets for their support.

Austin McCarl Back on Knoxville Raceway Podium

PETERSEN MEDIA: Saturday night in Knoxville, IA, Austin McCarl was able to cure what ailed him in early season qualifying as he timed in very well and put the Country Builder Racing entry back on the podium at the famed facility.

“Saturday was a good night overall from start to finish,” Austin McCarl said. “Qualifying has really hindered us in the early season at Knoxville, but to time in well finally, it set us up to have a really good night.”

Timing the Country Builders/Walkers/Tucker Trucking/Kolthoff Electric backed No. 88 in second fastest in time trials, the Altoona, IA would line up in the third row of his heat race.

Showing the ability to pass cars at will in previous weeks, McCarl continued to do just that as he charged to a third-place finish, which gave him enough points to make the feature event inversion as he put his machine in the second row for the 20-lap affair.

Admittedly getting off to a slow start in the feature, McCarl searched the ½ mile raceway for a line that fit his car well, and when he settled in, he began running very well inside the Top-Five.

Keeping his machine well inside the top five, McCarl took full advantage of a pair of late restarts as he propelled himself up to third and chased after Brian Brown and Aaron Reutzel.

With Brown and Reutzel getting away, McCarl was able to still put the Country Builders Racing team back on the Knoxville Raceway podium by way of a third place finish.

“To get timed in well, run well in our heat and the feature, it really gives me confidence moving forward,” McCarl said. “A night like this is great for the Country Builders team, and I can’t wait to get back to work this week and try again on Saturday.”

Austin McCarl and Country Builders Racing would like to thank Country Builders, Ochoco West Lumber, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, Walkers, Tucker Trucking, Kolthoff Electric, MAAS Brothers Powder Coating, Offill Family Farms, Stealth Cam, Bosma Family Farms, Muddy, HRP, Penske Racing Shocks, A.R.T.

Scadden Design, and Octane Ink for their continued support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races: 12, Wins: 0, Top 5’s: 4, Top 10’s: 5

ON TAP: Country Builders Racing and Austin McCarl will be right back to it this Saturday night at Knoxville Raceway and on Sunday night at Huset’s Speedway.

Blake Carrick Third at Marysville Raceway

PETERSEN MEDIA: Circumstances kept the Carrick Motorsports team parked this past weekend, but a late phone call from Van Dyke Motorsports saw Blake Carrick make the trip to Marysville Raceway where he had a strong night that culminated with a third-place finish.

“Unfortunately, our team ended up not making the trip down south, but Evan Holdsclaw and Harley Van Dyke got in touch with me, and I hopped in the No. 5h car and ran Marysville,” Carrick said. “It was a fun night of racing, and really thankful to them as well as their sponsors for making it all possible.”

No stronger to the Sutter County facility, Carrick adapted well to the famed Nor*Cal entry as he timed in second fastest amongst the 25 drivers that made their way to the facility for a night of short track racing.

Lining up in the second row of his heat race, the Lincoln, CA driver held his own and finished fourth. Locking into the feature, Carrick also earned a spot in the redraw where the six pill lined him up sixth in the 25-lap feature event.

On a very racy Marysville Raceway surface, the leaders would put on a show as they exchanged positions on numerous occasions and battled wheel to wheel all around the ¼ mile.

Carrick would quickly work his way up to the fourth position, before moving into third at the halfway point of the race. Chasing after William Fielding and Jake Haulot, Carrick would actually move into second for a lap in the closing stages of the race.

Falling back to third on the 22nd lap, Carrick would hang on to the podium position as the checkered flag flew over the field.

“I had a blast, and am really thankful to Harley Van Dyke and his team,” Blake Carrick said.

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

ON TAP: Carrick will be back in action this Friday in Watsonville, CA and on Saturday in Placerville, CA.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-13, Wins-0, Top 5’s-4, Top 10’s-9

Reinhardt Captures Top-10 in Michigan; Nearly Grabs Two More in Ohio

Upcoming Four-Race Week Includes Trips to New Jersey and Wisconsin

Waynesfield, OH – May 17, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Following a weekend off, Kyle Reinhardt couldn’t pass up an opportunity to race just two miles from the Capitol Renegade team’s race shop, before hitting the road for the next three stops on the All Star Circuit of Champions (ASCoC) tour.

Not only did Wednesday’s Outlaw show at Lincoln Speedway offer a potentially good payday, it meant valuable track time before Reinhardt returns to the Pigeon Hills oval two more times later this season with the ASCoC for races paying $7,300 and $20,000 to win.

May 11: Gettysburg Clash / Lincoln Speedway / Abbottstown, PA

(55 cars, Qualifying 17th, Heat 10th, C-main 1st, B-main 17th)

An unfavorable draw placed Reinhardt near the end of Flight A qualifying for the first 28 of 55 cars on hand at Lincoln Speedway. He recorded the 17th quickest time in the group, placing him 9th to start heat number one. Only the top five from the 8-lap qualifying race would move directly to the A-main.

Reinhardt came home 10th in the heat race, placing him on the pole of the C-main. He went on to capture the win in the 10-lap ‘C’, then finished 17th in the 12-lap ‘B’.

May 13: Mace Thomas Classic / I-96 Speedway / Lake Odessa, MI

(29 cars, Qualifying 17th, Heat 6th, A-main 7th)

With 29 teams signed in at I-96 Speedway for the Mace Thomas Classic, the single-group qualifying, and three heat format was in effect per the All Star rule for 30 cars or less.

Kyle Reinhardt was 21st in line to go under the clock. The late slot wasn’t ideal for qualifying against the entire field. Reinhardt managed to record the 17th best time overall, slotting him 6th in heat number two.

In the three heat format, the top six finishers from each 8-lap qualifying event transfer directly to the A-main. Reinhardt ‘held serve’ and came home 6th to lock into the 30-lap feature event, but he would have his work cut out for him from the 17th starting spot.

Piloting the Capitol Renegade / Capitol Custom Coaches & Trailers / Champion Hi-Tech Lubricants / J&J Auto Racing No.91, Reinhardt saved his best for last. From the drop of the green in the A-main he surged forward, entering the top ten by lap nine, then steadily working his way further up the leaderboard, reaching the 8th position by lap 19.

A few laps later, a flat right rear tire appeared to ruin a terrific run by Reinhardt. His team was able to replace the tire and get him back out in time to rejoin the rear of the field.

With just seven laps remaining at the restart, Reinhardt wasted no time charging back into the top ten, ultimately reaching 7th by the time he flashed under the checkered flag. It was an impressive recovery from a dose of bad luck.

May 14: Wayne County Speedway / Orrville, OH

(27 cars, Qualifying 7th, Heat 4th, A-main 15th)

The series rolled into Wayne County Speedway on Saturday night with a contingent of 27 teams in tow. Once again, the single group qualifying, three heat format was in effect.

Reinhardt turned in a solid lap, making himself 7th quick in the field and snagging the outside front row starting spot for heat number one. It was a good opportunity to claim a spot in the dash by winning the qualifying race, but it wasn’t to be. Reinhardt finished 4th and transferred to the feature event.

Rolling off from his 12th starting spot in the 30-lap A-main, Reinhardt had his sights set on a second consecutive top-10 finish. The opening laps of the finale saw him struggle with an ill-handling car and drop through the running order.

After falling as far back as 18th two laps before the halfway point of the race, the Neptune City, NJ native began his resurgence. By lap 26, Reinhardt had climbed all the way back to 12th. A solid recovery, but he was still challenging for more when the caution came out on lap 28.

“We got better as the fuel load burned off and I was able to get back everything I lost early on. My right rear started going down with a handful of laps to go but we were about to get into the top-10 when the caution came out with two laps to go. The tire was almost completely flat by the time we went back to green, and I lost a couple spots.“, Reinhard explained.

He crossed the finish line in 15th when all was said and done.

May 15: Waynesfield Raceway Park / Waynesfield, OH

(23 cars, Qualifying 6th, Heat 1st, Dash 4th, A-main 13th)

The final stop of the weekend for the All Stars was Waynesfield Raceway Park in western Ohio. Kyle Reinhardt’s night started off well, registering the 6th quickest lap in the field of 23.

The momentum continued with a dominating win in heat number three. Reinhardt led all eight laps and held a 2.061 second advantage at the finish line.

The dash draw handed Reinhardt the fourth starting spot in the 6-lap dash. He grabbed 3rd on the start but eventually Justin Peck worked his way back into the spot, relegating the Capitol Renegade No.91 of Reinhardt to a 4th place finish.

The 30-lap A-main shaped up to be a season best for Reinhardt. He took the green from the 4th starting spot and worked his way into 3rd by lap ten. His J&J Auto Racing machine was good, and he was clearly on offense.

Reinhardt was poised to take a shot at 2nd place on lap 25 when he made slight contact with the No.7 of Scott Bogucki as the pair exited turn four. It was enough to spin Reinhardt, sending him to the back of the field for the restart. He managed to fight back to 13th at the final flag.

“I totally blew that one. The 7 crossed over more than I thought he was going to, and I got my left side in the slop and just plowed into him. Feel terrible for my guys because we needed that one. We were racing hard for a win. Not much else to say.“, a disappointed Reinhardt tweeted after the event.

There was one more note from Waynesfield. Reinhardt had yet another right rear tire go down during the final five laps, making it three in three nights.

Wrap-Up

“I’m definitely a lot more comfortable on the smaller, slicker tracks than I was last year. We’re a lot better this year…a lot closer to where we need to be.“, Reinhardt commented.

“We put ourselves in position for three top-10 finishes this weekend. It’s disappointing to have a couple of them slip away, but we have to shake it off. We know we’re getting better. Three right rear flats in three nights…that’s just tough luck and out of our control. We have to work on the things we can control and hope the things we can’t, start to go our way.“

Up Next

Reinhardt will kick off his race week Tuesday night, May 17th, with a trip to his home state of NJ to take on the World of Outlaws at Bridgeport Motorsports Park.

Later in the week, the Capitol Renegade team will head north to Wisconsin for stops with the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions at Wilmot Raceway, Plymouth Dirt Track, and Angell Park Speedway on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Becker Bags Top-5 with Bjork Motorsports

PETERSEN MEDIA- Climbing aboard the Bjork Motorsports No. 7b over the weekend with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour during the Peter Murphy Classic, Sean Becker would run well in his first stint with the team as he finished fifth on Friday night in Tulare, CA before a ninth place run on Saturday in Hanford, CA.

“I really want to thank Don Bjork, as well as Brad and Jeff Bumgarner for giving me the opportunity and working so hard to get me up to speed so quickly this weekend,” Sean Becker said. “In Tulare we were really fast out of the box, and I wish I would have gotten up on the wheel at the start of the race, because we were rolling at the end of the night.”

Making the trip to central California for the Peter Murphy Classic doubleheader, Becker got his night underway on Friday by earning quick time honors in his group aboard the Bjork Construction backed entry.

Finishing third in his heat race, ‘The Shark’ moved into the Dash and his sixth-place finish put him in the third to start the 30-lap PMC feature event opener.

Riding along inside the Top-10 when the feature came to life, Becker would get going around the 10th lap as he made took over the sixth position. Running well in sixth and mixing it up with some of the region’s biggest starts, Becker would make a bid for a podium stop amidst some exciting three and four car battles.

After a hard fought 30-laps, Becker capped his first night off with Bjork Motorsports with a fifth-place finish.

Making the trip to Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, CA for the PMC finale, Becker again timed in well as he ended up fourth fastest in his group. Running third in his heat race, the Roseville, CA again locked himself in to the 30-lap finale as he rolled off the starting grid from the 15th starting position.

On a racy Keller Auto Speedway surface, Becker was mired in traffic during the race’s early stages as he ran in 16th during the opening five laps until a yellow bunched the field back up.

Nailing the ensuing restart, Becker jumped up into 13th before taking over 11th a lap later.

As the track continued to slick off, Becker moved into 10th on lap 15 where he ran for much of the remained of the 30-lapper.

With just four circuits left in the race, ‘The Shark’ was able to gain another position as he moved into ninth where he went on to finish and closed out his weekend.

“In Hanford, I got off to a tough start in our heat race and it really hindered our starting position in the feature,” Becker added. “I really felt good late in the race, I just didn’t do a good enough job picking up a couple of more spots to give the car and team the finish it deserved. Really thankful for the opportunity, and hoping it may lead to more races.”

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-9, Wins-0, Top 5’s- 4, Top-10’s- 6

ON TAP: Becker is not sure where he will be in action at this weekend at the time of press.

Big Game Motorsports and Gravel Garner Top 10s at Lincoln and Williams Grove

Inside Line Promotions - MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (May 17, 2022) - David Gravel produced a pair of top-10 finishes last week when the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series ventured into Central Pennsylvania.

The Big Game Motorsports driver posted a seventh-place result on Wednesday at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown during the Duramax Drydene Gettysburg Clash before finishing sixth on Saturday at Williams Grove Speedway, which hosted the Morgan Cup.

"It was an okay week," Gravel said. "I drew the eight both nights in the dash draw so that wasn't good."

Gravel was second quickest in his group and he won a heat race to advance into the dash on Wednesday at Lincoln Speedway, where he pulled the highest number - eight - during the dash redraw. He gained a spot to finish seventh in the dash.

"We qualified pretty well and raced well in the heat," he said. "In the feature I felt like we were okay; not the best, but not the worst. We hung around, but just didn't have enough to charge to the front. There were 55 cars there so we took our seventh and moved on."

Friday's event at Williams Grove Speedway rained out. The team returned to the half-mile oval on Saturday. Gravel timed in fifth quickest in his group before advancing from third to second place in a heat race.

"It seemed like our qualifying lap would be good enough to start on the front row of a heat and the last couple of guys put down great laps, which I didn't expect," he said. "Fortunately, we were able to get a great start in the heat and the second-place guy rolled the bottom. I was able to get around him to run second and make the dash."

Unfortunately, Gravel drew the No. 8 for the dash for the second straight race. He was credited with a seventh-place result in the race.

"We were able to get to fifth in the feature, but we had a restart that was bad and fell to seventh," he said. "Once you got going there wasn't much passing or racing so it was all won or lost in the first lap of the start and restarts."

A trio of races with the World of Outlaws is on tap this week beginning Tuesday at Bridgeport Motorsports Park in Swedesboro, N.J. Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio, hosts an event on Friday before the action shifts to Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio, on Saturday.

"Bridgeport is a unique place," Gravel said. "It's so wide. We struggled there last year, but we're going with a new mindset. I think that track will promote good racing.

"I've won a couple at Attica and we won the earlier race in the season last year. It's a hard track to feel good at every time. It's a tricky joint. When it gets slick and you have a full fuel load it's a tough place.

"Sharon is a super, super slick track. I think we ran fourth there last year. It's a place you can race at and if your car is good it definitely shows."

QUICK RESULTS -

May 11 - Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa. - Qualifying: 2; Heat race: 1 (1); Dash: 7 (8); Feature: 7 (7).

Kaleb Johnson Earns Two Top Fives at Knoxville and Career-Best 410 Result at Huset's

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (May 17, 2022) - Kaleb Johnson recorded back-to-back top fives on Saturday night before posting his career-best 410ci winged sprint car result on Sunday.

Johnson opened the busy weekend at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, where he kicked off the competition on Saturday by qualifying fourth quickest before charging from fifth to win a heat race.

"Unfortunately, we dealt with overheating problems in both features," he said. "The speed was there and that's the main thing. If we didn't have to deal with that issue we could have had a little better outcome. I feel we're rolling around there pretty well right now."

Johnson finished where he started - fifth - in the conclusion to Saturday's program. The night ended with a fifth-place result in a make-up feature.

"In the second feature I led for five or six laps and then ran second for four or five laps and then I faded to fifth as the overheating got worse," he said. "It was a bit disappointing, but still a positive to get two top fives."

The team ventured to Huset's Speedway on Sunday. Johnson timed in third quickest and he ended fourth in a heat race to garner enough points to advance into the feature redraw.

"I think I shocked everybody including myself when we timed in third quick," he said. "The car was really stable in qualifying and I put down two good laps. And the heat race went well. I ran third most of it. There was a restart with two or three laps to go. I made a mistake and ended up getting passed by two cars. On the last lap I was able to squeeze by someone coming to the checkered to get back to where I started."

Johnson pulled the No. 5 during the feature redraw to line up on the inside of the third row for the main event.

"I found myself in the middle on the start and let about four people get by me," he said. "I passed one car and then the rubber came in. Even though I went backwards I thought it was a pretty good night."

The eighth-place result was his first career top 10 in a 410 sprint car.

Johnson plans to run a three-race weekend beginning on Friday at Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn., with the Midwest Sprint Touring Series and Midwest Power Series. Saturday features action at Knoxville Raceway and Sunday will showcase a return to Huset's Speedway.

May 14 - Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa - Qualifying: 4; Heat race: 1 (5); Feature: 5 (5); Make-up Feature: 5 (3).

Williamson Scores Runner-Up Result at Jacksonville Speedway and Top 10 at Lucas Oil Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - WHEATLAND, Mo. (May 17, 2022) - Garet Williamson earned a top-10 result in both 410ci and 360ci winged sprint car competition last weekend.

The Bryant Paver Motorsports driver was stout in a 410 on Friday at Jacksonville Speedway in Jacksonville, Ill., where he hustled from sixth to third place in a heat race before finishing second during a feature that was deemed official after rain struck just before the midpoint.

"We went there and did everything we were supposed to do except win," he said. "And I think if we could have raced and ended up in traffic we'd have had a shot."

The team swapped engines for an ASCS Warrior Region and ASCS Sooner Region event on Saturday at Lucas Oil Speedway, where Williamson placed second in a heat race. That started him on the inside of the fifth row in the A Main.

"We were fast, but we needed to win our heat race," he said. "In the feature we got up to fifth, but it was one lane around the top and it rubbered up in turns one and two. I was trying to pass cars and was moving around and we ended up losing a couple of positions."

Williamson's seventh-place result was his 13th top 10 of the season.

He returns to Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour competition this Friday and Saturday at Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Ill.

"We raced one time there last year," he said. "We were running third and went to pass for second and I hit a hole, the car got upset and we spun out with a couple of laps to go.

"I think we'll be good this weekend. It's a track that fits our style of racing. We had speed last year so I don't see any reason why we can't be competitive this weekend."

QUICK RESULTS -

May 13 - Jacksonville Speedway in Jacksonville, Ill. - Heat race: 3 (6); Feature: 2 (2).

May 14 - Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo. - Heat race: 2 (1); Feature: 7 (9).

Hagar Takes ASCS Mid-South Region Points Lead Into I-30 Speedway This Saturday

Inside Line Promotions - MARION, Ark. (May 17, 2022) - Derek Hagar will return to I-30 Speedway this Saturday for an ASCS Mid-South Region event.

Hagar enters the night at the bullring in Little Rock, Ark., leading the ASCS Mid-South Region championship standings after winning two of the first three series races this year. He's also the only driver to post a top-10 result during all three races.

"We just have to go out there and do what we've been doing," he said. "I-30 has treated us well this year other than the first night when we crashed in a non-wing. I know we can get it done if we put ourselves in the right position."

Hagar earned a Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour and ASCS Mid-South Region victory at I-30 Speedway in March. He also captured a feature triumph at the quarter-mile oval during his most recent visit last month.

On top of the success on the track, Hagar has an added boost of getting his primary engine back this week.

"We started the season out the strongest we have in a while so I'm looking forward to going back to I-30 this weekend," he said. "We have a fresh Dynotech under the hood so I'm excited to see how that will do. Hopefully the changes we made meet our expectations. Kenny (Conrad) and Ricky (Stenhouse) always come up with a good combination.

"This is our major engine. With Kenny getting sick last year he didn't get to go through that stuff in the offseason. He is very picky about who touches the motors. Kenny does all the assembly and then Ricky does our machine work and dynoing. Once Kenny got well and in the shop he got it torn down and did some updates to the new ASCS rules. It has taken some time to get some parts. We've been running our second motor, which has treated us well to start the year. Now we'll see if we can keep it up with our primary one."

Wilson Nets Top 10s at I-96 Speedway and Wayne County Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - WAYNESFIELD, Ohio (May 17, 2022) - Greg Wilson drove to a pair of top 10s last weekend with the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions.

The Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics and DNC Hydraulics backed Seeling Motorsports driver hustled from 19th to 10th on Friday in Michigan before earning a seventh-place result the ensuing night in Ohio.

The stout weekend began on Friday at I-96 Speedway in Lake Odessa, Mich., where Wilson qualified 26th quickest overall. He advanced a position to place eighth in a heat race before winning the B Main from the sixth starting position. The night concluded with Wilson tying for the second-most positions gained after his 10th-place effort.

"We're really working to be good," he said. "We did some stuff a little different hot lapping. We left it on the car and then took it back off later in the night. We got our race car pretty good and ran up to 10 th from a little ways back. It was great that we recovered from a poor qualifying effort the way we did."

Wilson also moved forward on Saturday at Wayne County Speedway in Orrville, Ohio. He timed in 18th quickest, but a rally from sixth to third in a heat race locked him into the 10th starting position in the A Main.

"We were mediocre qualifying and then we raced well all night," he said. "In the feature we got up to like fifth, but at the end of the race we faded a little and lost a couple of spots. I feel like normally we're really good at the end of races. We were a little better at the beginning, but not the end, which is the opposite of how it's typically gone."

Wilson's seventh-place result was his eighth top 10 of the season.

The weekend concluded on Sunday with a DNF at Waynesfield Raceway Park.

"At Waynesfield the scoreboard doesn't show all that happened all night," he said. "We only made two or three laps in the feature. I think we had a pretty good car in the feature, but we got forced off the track. If I didn't lift we'd have been tore up. I just about ate it and was more lucky than anything. You're bound to have tough nights so we're looking at the positive."

Wilson will continue racing with the All Stars this weekend, running Friday at Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wis.; Saturday at Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wis.; and Sunday at Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wis.

"I'm pretty excited," he said. "I really enjoy going to Wisconsin. The race tracks seem to fit into my wheelhouse. The fans are great up there. It's one of those places you look forward to going to a time or two every year. As far as racing goes our goals and mindset is to position ourselves to win them. I feel we have a good shot to run in the top 10 and possibly have a shot at winning."

Mallett Posts Season-Best Second-Place Showing at Southern Raceway

Inside Line Promotions - MILTON, Fla. (May 17, 2022) - Jordon Mallett garnered his first podium finish of the season last Saturday during a USCS Series event at Southern Raceway.

Rain captured the opening night on Friday before Mallett scored a season-best result on Saturday.

"Friday got rained out unfortunately," he said. "Part of the draw for going down there was it being a two-day show. It became a monsoon after hot laps so it was a bummer not to get that in."

Mallett was on a mission once racing began on Saturday, charging from sixth to win a heat race.

"We had a real good heat race," he said. "I felt the car was pretty good and I felt I could make it a little better. We tried a couple of things in the dash and it was so-so, but we got it where I wanted in the feature."

Mallett advanced from fourth to third place in the dash before he picked up another position in the main event to end second.

"We got bottled up on the start and I was in a bad spot," he said. "It took a few laps to get settled into third place where I could go to work on the top two. Everybody in the top three was fast. We separated ourselves from the pack. My car came in a little bit too late. It really came to life around Lap 22. We ran the leader and second-place driver down. We got into some traffic and our car came alive. We passed the second-place car I think on Lap 28 or Lap 29 and then ran the leader down, but just didn't have an opportunity to capitalize on it. Sometimes you wish races were shorter and sometimes you wish they were longer. I wish we had another lap or two and I felt we could have won."

Mallett's second-place showing continued his string of improving his feature finish during each race this season.

He returns to competition with the ASCS Mid-South Region this Saturday at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark.

Dover Earns First Feature Triumph of Season to Highlight Stout Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (May 17, 2022) - Jack Dover captured his first feature win of the season last Friday, giving him at least one trip to Victory Lane during all 18 seasons behind the wheel of a winged sprint car.

Dover kicked off his three-race weekend with a Midwest Sprint Touring Series event at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb., by advancing from sixth to third place in a heat race.

"We missed the feature redraw by one so that put us starting seventh," he said. "We got up to third pretty quick. With about eight laps to go I was able to get to second. I kept hitting the bottom pretty good. Anywhere I went the car worked, but it seemed the best on the bottom. I was able to track down Ryan Timms. I knew once I got to him I only had one shot. Once I showed him the bottom he'd move down. I got him off turn four coming to the white flag."

Dover's victory marked his 17th in his last 55 races during 360ci winged sprint car competition at the track.

Dover also joined the Midwest Sprint Touring Series on Saturday at Off Road Speedway in Norfolk, Neb., where he advanced from fourth to third place in a heat race and from sixth to fourth place in the main event.

"The track rubbered down right around the bottom," he said. "We got up to third pretty quick and rode around in the rubber. There was a late caution and another guy was able to sneak underneath us after we restarted and we ended up fourth."

The weekend ended on a high note on Sunday at Huset's Speedway, where Dover guided the Chris and Rick Bowers' owned sprint car to its best outing of the season. The team qualified ninth quickest, placed second in a heat race and maneuvered from ninth to seventh in the A Main.

"It was one of the best nights we've had there since the beginning of last year," Dover said. "We tried a bunch of different things and I think we're onto something. We changed the way the car works and fine-tuned it a little. I feel really, really comfortable in it now.

"We tightened it up a little come feature-time and it felt really good. We got by a couple of cars and then rode around in the rubber. The results may not be the best, but we were ready to go racing there again the next day if they had a race."

Dover plans to return to Huset's Speedway this Sunday. He currently ranks seventh in the championship standings at the track.

Amantea Set for Trio of Races in Micro Sprint and Non-Wing Sprint Car This Week

Inside Line Promotions - Mt. POCONO, Pa. (May 17, 2022) - Joey Amantea is aiming to compete in two different race cars this week.

Amantea is hopeful to make his long-awaited micro sprint season debut on Wednesday at Action Track USA in Kutztown, Pa., before tackling a Rapid Tire USAC East Coast Sprint Cars Series doubleheader on Friday at Bedford Speedway in Bedford, Pa., and Saturday at Selinsgrove Speedway in Selinsgrove, Pa.

"We're super excited to break out the little car on Wednesday," he said. "We fired it up Monday and it sounds really good. Hopefully we'll have a good outing with it."

Amantea hasn't been able to compete in micro sprint competition since his career-best performance at the Tulsa Shootout in early January.

He has enjoyed success in non-wing sprint car action this year, earning four top fives and six top 10s in seven starts heading into this weekend when he will make his season debut at Bedford Speedway and at Selinsgrove Speedway.

"We've been fast all year," he said. "I enjoy Bedford. It reminds me a little of some micro tracks we've run around. We've been there two times in the sprint car and we have a top five so that gives us confidence.

"Selinsgrove is one of my favorite tracks. We ended up fourth last summer out there with a not great car either. I think with our new setups and the way we've been racing we have a chance for podiums if not a win this weekend."

Amantea enters the weekend ranked fourth in the USAC East Coast Sprint Cars Series championship standings.

Jeff Halligan and Risser Motorsports Build Notebook vs. Outlaws

Mechanicsburg, PA – May 17, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Feature Photo Credit: Rubright Racing Images

Racing more, regardless of where, helps teams learn what their equipment needs to be at its best. For Risser Motorsports in 2022 though, it’s been difficult to race as much as they want to. Things like tire availability and delays in obtaining parts, have forced Jeff Halligan and his team to limit the number of nights the team races. Their primary focus has been Port Royal Speedway.

An off weekend from their weekly home at ‘The Speed Palace’ provided Halligan and team with the opportunity to make their first trip of the season to Lincoln Speedway, as well as a return trip to Williams Grove Speedway. They would face the always tough World of Outlaws at both events, but to improve, you have to race.

May 11: Gettysburg Clash / Lincoln Speedway / Abbottstown, PA

(55 cars, Qualifying 11th, Heat 9th, B-main 15th)

A stout field of 55 teams signed in at Lincoln Speedway to compete with the World of Outlaw sprint car series in the Gettysburg Clash. The lucrative show has consistently drawn a high quality field in recent years in pursuit of the $10,000 winner’s share and minimum $1,000 to make the field.

Jeff Halligan got his night off to a respectable start during Flight A qualifying, timing 11th quickest in the Risser Motorsports / TheTreeCenter.com / Victory Auto of Lewistown / EMM Sales & Service / Jake’s Golf Carts, No.45.

The solid qualifying effort provided Halligan with the 6th starting spot in the first 8-lap heat race. With the top five finishers slated to transfer directly to the A-main, he was certainly within striking distance. Unfortunately, Halligan fought an ill-handling car in the dirty air and slid backwards to a 9th place finish.

The heat race finish led to a 13th starting spot in the 12-lap B-main. Reaching a top four finishing spot to transfer to the night’s finale proved to be a tall order. Halligan was credited with 15th in the event.

May 14: Morgan Cup / Williams Grove Speedway / Mechanicsburg, PA

(41 cars, Qualifying 19th, Heat 9th, B-main 10th)

Saturday night a slightly smaller but still deep field of 41 cars registered for a shot at the $17,000 winner’s take.

Halligan’s qualifying laps resulted in an uncharacteristically poor result, landing the team 19th out of 20 in Flight 2 and leaving them with a deep hole to climb out of.

The good news is, team would later find an issue that explained the result. For now, though, they would have to play with the hand they were dealt. Transferring to the A-main from his heat race was probably unlikely against the level of competition present. Recovering would require Halligan to, at a minimum, make significant forward progress from his 10th starting spot in the heat. Doing so would put him within striking distance of a transfer spot later in the B-main.

Halligan was only able to get to 9th in the heat race, handing him a 14th starting spot in the 12-lap B-main. The team’s night-long battle with gremlins was ongoing. They were prepared to load and call it a night when a last ditch idea gave them reason to soldier on.

While a 10th place finish in the B-main still brought an end to their night, the victory was in discovering they had identified the cause of their issue.

“I finally felt really good there at the end of our night. In the end, it was a productive night. It’s tough to feel that way sometimes when you don’t get the finish you know you’re capable of, but this is exactly why we need to race more. You can’t solve problems or get better sitting at home.“, Halligan shared.

“Given we haven’t raced much at Lincoln or The Grove this year, we knew we might take our lumps coming out here against the Outlaws, but you need to measure yourself sometimes. Our goal was just to make both shows. Obviously, we fell short, but we’re better off being out here and working to get better. Our focus is on our car and getting balance in it. Racing here can even help us back at Port (Royal).”, he concluded.

Up Next

Halligan and the Risser Motorsports team are set to tackle their first three-race weekend of the 2022 season. The weekend will kick off Friday night May 20th at Williams Grove Speedway with the Yellow Breeches 500 event, paying $500 to start and $5,000 to the winner.

Saturday they will return to Port Royal Speedway, where Halligan currently sits 4th in the championship point standings, just 25 points out of 2nd. Saturday’s race will also award $5,000 to the winner.

Tentatively, the weekend will wrap up Sunday with Jeff’s first 410 sprint car start at Path Valley Speedway. The only appearance of the year at the quarter-mile track will provide the third opportunity of the weekend for the victor to claim $5,000.

 

 

“Mr. May” Bobby Parrow Looking For Continued CRSA Success at LOLR

Press Release by Steven Ovens – May 16th, 2021 – LOLR Media photo –

(SODUS, NY) – One of the more anticipated CRSA Sprints series kickoffs in recent history is set to kick off on Saturday night in Canandaigua, NY at Paul Cole’s Land of Legends Raceway. Saturday night will start a 16-race schedule that will span the states of New York and Pennsylvania to crown the 2022 Super Gen Products with Champion Power Equipment CRSA Sprints champion.

If this past weekend at Land of Legends Raceway was any indication of how the season opener could go- all eyes in the pit area will be on the Tom Fletcher-owned No. 53. Waterloo, NY ace Bobby Parrow took advantage in slower traffic with a bad fast racecar to maneuver by Rookie John Smith’s No. 23 to take the lead with less than 5 laps to go.

Smith has been a shining star only three races into his 305 Sprint Car career, nearly nailing down his first win Saturday night. The former Malcolm Lane owned and prepared chassis has been firing on all cylinders for Smith, a graduate of the 600cc Micro Sprint ranks.

But it was Parrow finding that early season fire that he had in 2021 when he swept the first two shows at LOLR, including the CRSA event held there on 5/22/2021 where Parrow was narrowly edged by Alysha Bay. Parrow was awarded that win after post race tech to secure his first ever CRSA Sprints victory.

Eight days later the “Mr. May” of the CRSA Sprints would notch his second career win in a thriller with Darryl Ruggles at Weedsport Speedway.

Jeff Trombley returns to CRSA competition as a now four-time champion after an impressive battle all season in 2021 with Josh Flint, Trevor Years, Dana Wagner and breakout competitor Kyle Pierce. Trombley also picked up a CRSA Sprints win last year at Land of Legends behind the wheel of Warren Alexson’s No. 3a.

Other home turf defenders this weekend will include the first two 305 Sprint Car winners of the season at LOLR. Darryl Ruggles won on Opening Night- something he hadn’t done at LOLR in seven years. Brandyn Griffin held on late to hold off Ruggles to win in LOLR’s second week of competition. Griffin has been strong and would love nothing more than to add a CRSA victory to his racing resume.

Pits open early for sprint car teams on Saturday with a pit sweep at 3:15PM and pit gates officially opening at 3:30PM. A driver’s meeting will take place at 5:10PM with Heat in Engines and Hot Laps rolling off at 5:30PM. Race time is 6:30PM with live coverage 100% for FREE on www.landoflegendstv.com starting at 6:15PM.

The CRSA 305 Sprints are powered by Super Gen Products with their Champion Power Equipment located in Newark, NY. Associate sponsors for 2022 include A-Verdi Storage Containers, Midstate Basement Authorities, CNY Farm Supply, the Maguire Family of Dealerships, Powdertech Powdercoating, Pit Stop Convenience Stores, PJC Sprayfoam, Profab Enterprises, Eagle Enterprises, Bonnell’s Rod Shop, DisBatch Brewing Company, Magsarus Ignitions, Hoosier Racing Tire, Insinger Performance with their Stinger Race Fuel, My Race Pass and is owned and operated by Mike Emhof Motorsports.

Elite Talent Expected For Patriot Platinum Tour Beginning Tuesday, May 17, at Outlaw Speedway

(Dundee, NY) After a few postponements to begin the 2022 season, the A-Verdi Storage Containers Patriot Sprint Tour will start its 20th Anniversary Tour this Tuesday at the Outlaw Speedway.

With $5,000 to win the championship on the line this season, some of the best 360 sprint car drivers are expected to attend the Tuesday night program, including the Short Track Super Series Modifieds and Crate Sportsman.

Leading the group of elite drivers will be Jordan Thomas from Harding, Pennsylvania. The second-generation talent finally broke through in 2021, securing his first career series championship with several Podium Runs and two wins at Land of Legends and Outlaw Speedways. He won that championship by just four points over Davie Franek, where the two will be chasing their second career series championship this season.

Franek of Wantage, New Jersey, has been noted on the national scene this season as the No. 1 360 Sprint Car Driver in the country per the Wheatly Chronicles. In early February, Franek began his season down south with USCS and already had strong runs to start the season up north, posting five top-five runs with ESS & URC. Frank has come to like Outlaw Speedway the last few seasons, scoring the win in last year's PST season opener and winning their weekly championship.

A driver who finally broke through the win column in 2022 with PST was 21-year-old Paulie Colagiovanni of Marcellus. Colagiovanni picked up wins at Fonda and then later in the season at Utica Rome along with several wins in weekly competition at Outlaw putting together another solid season for the Central New York driver.

Despite no wins in series competition in 2021, you always have to look out for the five-time series champion, Jared Zimbardi. Zimbardi was so close to winning the 2021 Outlaw Summer Nationals after losing the lead to Ryan Smith with two laps to go; a lot of motivation will be had come Tuesday night and his quest for his sixth series championship.

Several other drivers are expected to attend this Tuesday streaming on Flo Racing, including former PST Canadian Series Champion Dylan Westbrook of Scotland, Ontario. Westbrook has gone on the ASCS National Tour and has continued to make strides on the National Stage since going to drive for Hills racing. Westbrook had a win at Outlaw back in 2019 during the Summer Nationals.

Other drivers planning on attending will be Joe Trenca, Brett Wright, Jonathan Preston, Dave Axton, Kyle Drum, Steve Glover, Denny Peebles, and 2022 Rookie of the Year Contender Jordan Hutton.

For those unable to attend Tuesday's race, it will be streamed Live on Flo Racing. You can also follow along on Facebook by liking the Patriot Sprint Tour and following @PatriotSprints on Instagram and Twitter.

“Double-D” makes big gains in Gettysburg Clash and Morgan Cup; Williams Grove and Lincoln ahead
ByTyler Altmeyer
May 16, 2022

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (May 16, 2022) – Although unable to attain a victory, “Double-D” Danny Dietrich was more than impressive in his two-race slate with the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series, driving on to score a top-ten finish in Lincoln Speedway’s Gettysburg Clash on Wednesday, May 11, the product of row nine, following that feat with an impressive rally from 24th to finish 11th in Williams Grove Speedway’s Morgan Cup on Saturday, May 14. In all, Dietrich advanced 23 feature positions with the Greatest Show On Dirt, the week’s most impressive display of perseverance.

Joining a field of 55, the largest car count of the World of Outlaws season thus far, Dietrich, wheelman of Gary Kauffman’s Weikert’s Livestock, Sandoe’s Fruit Market, Pace Performance, Big Cove Whitetail Trophy Hunts, Drop Of Ink Tattoo, Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC, Self Made Racing, No. 48 sprint car, finished eighth in Lincoln’s annual Gettysburg Clash, rallying from 18th on the A-Main grid. The Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, native was forced to start deep as the result of a fifth-place finish during his respective heat race.

Dietrich was fourth in the Morgan Cup Last Chance Showdown which ignited his eventual 13-spot rally to 11th. The Morgan Cup opener on Friday, May 13, was ultimately canceled due to weather.

“We had our work cut out for us all weekend, but we did what we could to recover and that’s all we can ask for. We didn’t win, but we did our best to put on a show,” Dietrich said, a four-time winner at Lincoln Speedway so far in 2022. “Hats off to this entire team. They bust their butts and I appreciate everything they do. And a big shoutout to all of the fans who came out and supported the World of Outlaws show this weekend. We had some weather issues at Williams Grove, but the fans hung tough and showed their dedication. We wouldn’t be able to do any of this without them.”

ON DECK:

Westfall finished sixth and tenth, respectively, equalling his best USAC performances of the season.

Westfall’s sixth-place score at Lakeside Speedway was the product of row six, salvaging a top-ten outcome after battling through the evening’s consolation semi-feature.

“It was a long weekend with a lot of miles logged, but we put together some solid runs against talented fields of cars and that’s motivating for us. That first win is coming soon,” Westfall explained, the 2021 Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS) champion. “Hats off to Ray Marshall and all of Ray Marshall Motorsports. Ray gives us the opportunity to go out and do this and we wouldn’t be in this position without him.”

CHICORA, Pa. (May 16, 2022) – Despite losing the opportunity for additional lap time before the Greatest Show On Dirt invades in less than a week, Chicora, Pennsylvania’s George Hobaugh is eager to return to Sharon Speedway, set to join the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series for their upcoming appearance on Saturday, May 21. Hobaugh was scheduled to compete at Sharon on May 14, but Mother Nature intervened.

Certainly no stranger to the Hartford, Ohio, oval, Hobaugh’s accomplishments at Sharon Speedway are steadily increasing, most recently earning a fifth-place finish against the All Star CIrcuit of Champions during Buckeye Cup action on April 30. Impressive enough, Hobaugh led the first 28 circuits, only to lose the handle on a fast tightening race car.

His most recent start at “The Action Track” resulted in a sixth-place performance on Friday, May 13, climbing one spot after starting seventh on the grid. Hobaugh kicked-off the program with a heat race victory.

“I think we have a pretty good notebook put together for Sharon. We’ll treat the World of Outlaws race like any other race and just keep doing what we’ve been doing,” Hobaugh said, driver of the Krill Recycling, Laskowski Plumbing, Ridgeview Security, Hobaugh’s Auto Parts, Colliers Custom Kitchen and Bath, No. 40 sprint car. “It all starts with pill draw and qualifying…that will tell the tale from the start.”

ON DECK:

Thiel quick before trouble in All Star start at I-96 Speedway; All Star and IRA Wisconsin tripleheader ahead

 ByTyler Altmeyer May 16, 2022

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (May 16, 2022) – The somewhat last minute decision to venture southeast into the Wolverine State to join the All Star Circuit of Champions at I-96 Speedway nearly paid off for Scotty Thiel and Team 73, but unfortunately, all potential was cut short, forced to retire early after contact with a spinning lapped car caused irreparable damages. Despite the ending chaos, Thiel was impressive, leading 11 laps of the 30-lap, $8,500-to-win program after kicking off the evening with commanding heat race and dash victories.

Thiel, driver of the Team 73, Gibbsville Cheese, Walkers Game Ear, Professional Plating Inc, Scott Thiel Builders, Stealth Cam, Muddy Outdoors, Complete Water Inc, KSI Supply, GRP Motorsports, Racers Hall, Triple X Chassis, K1 Race Gear, HRP, King Racing Products, Keizer Wheels, No. 73 sprint car, was working toward a first-ever All Star victory during his trip to Michigan, hoping to add to his 2022 win total that already includes a pair of IRA Outlaw Sprint Series victories.

“We didn’t want our night to end like it did, but we’ll shake it off and move forward,” Scotty Thiel explained. “Hats off to this entire team. To roll out of the box and be that fast says a lot about this team and what we can do. I think we were good enough to win, but some things bit us and we’ll learn from it. Our goal is to transfer our momentum from the beginning of the night into next weekend’s tripleheader with the IRA and All Stars.”

ON DECK: The “Big Wheel” Scotty Thiel and Team 73 will continue their 2022 campaign with an All Star Circuit of Champions and IRA Outlaw Sprint Series Wisconsin tripleheader on Friday through Sunday, May 20-22, visiting Wilmot Raceway, the Plymouth Dirt Track, and Angell Park Speedway in consecutive fashion.

Brian Brown victorious for second Knoxville Raceway triumph of 2022

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. (May 16, 2022) - “Blackjack” Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing were impressive yet again at the Sprint Car Capital of the World, cashing in for their second victory of the season, the 58th of Brown’s career, and earning a $5,000 payday in the process. Brown’s charge to the front commenced from the outside of row two, kicking off the Saturday night, May 14, program with the fastest qualifying time overall. The Grain Valley, Missouri, native would go on to finish second in his respective heat race, climbing four spots from sixth for his only defeat of the evening.

A hard-fought victory, Brown, driver of the Casey’s, FVP, Andy's Frozen Custard, Impact Signs Awnings and Wraps, Rowdy Energy, Ditzfeld transfer, Champion Brands, MC Power, Weld Wheels, Housby, Maxim Chassis, J.D. Welding & Machine, Waldinger, Smiley’s Racing Products, No. 21 sprint car, was forced to outduel three-time All Star Circuit of Champions champion, Aaron Reutzel, as well as Lynton Jeffrey, for the Knoxville triumph, trading bumps and slides before taking command officially with just a handful of circuits remaining.

Adding a little extra drama to the evening, Brown had to go an extra circuit to 21, as a last lap caution would ultimately lead to a green-white-checkered finish.

“I didn’t feel like we were really great that whole feature,” said Brown in Victory Lane. “I got working with my wing. We had a motto this week, ‘Whatever it takes.’ Aaron did a phenomenal job. I had to slide him and just try to block the line. They’re probably upset with me, but we’re here to win. It’s an honor to drive this car.”

Even after fading at the start, the fuel load burnt off and we were able to recover,” Spencer Bayston said. “We’re really looking forward to getting back there and having two nights to build our comfort level even higher. Even after this weekend, we have a great guage on how to approach future Williams Grove visits.”

Jeremy Campbell Triumphs at Monett Motor Speedway

5/16/2022

WICHITA, KS – The Jeremy Campbell Motorsports team captured win #1 of the season this Saturday in only the second race of the season! The ASCS Sooner and Warrior regions returned to Monett Motor Speedway this weekend, where Campbell had won with the series in 2021, and again was fast from the start. With track conditions wreaking havoc on teams and tires, Campbell used his experience and tire control to hold on to the lead as the checkered flag waved.

“We cut a tire in the heat race, and as people were falling off I knew I needed to drive it straight into the corners and not slide my tires across the surface. With the tire shortage around the Midwest we really have to be smart with our new tires. We chose to run a used tire and made it work,” said Campbell.

Saturday night both tours continued the competition at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Missouri. The team struggled with set-up throughout the evening, but Campbell raced his way into the main event through the B feature. Starting 19th, the #10c machine made it up to 16th place.

Next up for the team is a May 21st event at 81 Speedway, followed by the Mickey Walker Classic at Creek County Speedway June 3rd and 4th.

Jeremy Campbell Motorsports is supported by long-term sponsors Dan’s Cycle, Scott’s Well Service, Knoche Farms, Knoche Transport, Nelson Circles - TDN Farms, Mel Hambelton Ford Racing, Ivan and Tammy Etherton, BEPC, Maxim Chassis, Hepfner Racing Products, Diversified Machine, Inc, Big Corner Creative, Advanced Performance Engineering, Cannady Body Shop, Hampel Oil, Penske Racing Shocks, Saldana Racing Products.

USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship Returns to Circle City May 25th-26th

(Indianapolis, IN) One of the biggest weeks in racing will see the return of some of the greatest wheelmen on dirt making their second appearance at Circle City Raceway. Circle City, which opened for its inaugural season last year, brought the USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship back to Indianapolis for the first time in 37 years. The series will slide its way back into the Indianapolis dirt for two exciting days of racing, presented by Mastin and Cain Warehousing Services, Wednesday-Thursday, May 25th-26th during the week of Indy.

These two shows will carry on the long-standing week of Indy traditions like the Hoosier Hundred and the Hulman Classic, races that have been a staple of USAC racing for more than 65 years. With some of the greatest modern stars in the sport at Indy’s newest track, a tradition like no other will continue to prevail.

Last year, Tanner Thorson dominated the field after squeezing his way through a major collision in turn 2 on lap 11. Thorson then went on to lead, in comfortable fashion, the next 19 laps to take home his fifth and final win of his 2021 season. Far behind Thorson was 2nd place driver Chris Windom who spent much of the final laps holding off 3rd place finisher Jake Swanson. Thorson will look to repeat at Circle City and bring a bright spark to his 2022 campaign.

The USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship will have an exciting schedule leading up to its return to Circle City as they move east from Kansas City to the Hoosier state with five great races. Rookie sensation Emerson Axsom remains at the top of the USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship points. Axsom is followed by USAC drivers Justin Grant and Chase Stockon. A fierce battle is expected around the tight quarter-mile, as the USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship makes its second trip to the newly formed Circle City Raceway.

Also joining the USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship, will be the Sherley Unlimited Snow Company DIRTcar Modifieds, as well as an appearance on Wednesday night by the Midwest Oldtimers Vintage Race Car Club.

A great two days of racing is expected in southeast Indy for a week that brings incredible racing action to the epicenter of motorsports.

Pits will open at 3:00pm, followed by grandstands at 5:30pm, with hot laps beginning at 6:00pm, and racing to follow.

Tickets will be available at the gate on race day and are $25 for adult general admission, $20 for seniors, veterans, military, first responders, and teachers with ID. Kids tickets are $10 for ages 9-12 and kids 8 and under are free.

Austin O’Neal Kicks 2022 Season Off at Lucas Oil Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA: With weather and part delays both playing a part in delaying Austin O’Neal’s season opening event, that finally changed as he raised the curtain on his campaign Saturday night in Wheatland, MO.

“It wasn’t the overall result we were looking for as we came into the night confident we could produce a Top-10,” Austin O’Neal said. “We had really good speed early in the night but lacked good luck on our pill draw which dictated a lot about our night.”

Lining the Marmon/Keystone/Weld Racing/River Valley Ag backed No. 11 up in the third row of his heat race, passing would be tough on this night. Able to work his way into fifth, the Kearney, MO driver would just narrowly miss out on locking directly into the feature event.

Forced into the ‘B’ on this night, O’Neal would continue to shake off some rust in what was his first start of the season as he pocketed a third place finish and transferred into the feature event.

Taking the green flag from the 17th starting position, the slick surface would soon turn extremely abrasive as rubber would begin to go down on the eighth lap of the race.

As the rubber began going down, O’Neal would be forced to get in line and keep his machine in the rubber as he worked around the Lucas Oil Speedway.

When the checkered flag flew on the feature event, O’Neal would take the checkered flag with an 18th place finish.

“In the feature our car felt really good, and as it started to get really good the track took rubber and basically ended our chances of moving forward,” O’Neal said. “It wasn’t a great result, but it was great getting back in our car. I am looking forward to getting back to action this weekend with the ASCS National Tour.”

Austin O’Neal Racing would like to thank Marmon/Keystone, Weld Racing, River Valley Ag, Kaw Valley Companies, RacinBoys, HMC Performance Coatings, Mel Hambelton Ford Racing, Champion Oil, Taffs Carpets, Rod End Supply, Clemons Home Team, Mettec Titanium, V&L Properties, Toby’s Coatings, NGK Spark Plugs, Maxim Racing, Capital Sign Co., Wesmar Racing Engines, and Schure Built Suspensions for their support.

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

ON TAP: O’Neal will travel Tri-City Speedway with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour this weekend.

Justin Sanders Nets Two Podium Finishes in SCCT Action with Dale Miller Motorsports

PETERSEN MEDIA- Following the Sprint Car Challenge Tour to Hanford and Tulare, CA, Justin Sanders and Dale Miller Motorsports saw their two-race winning streak come to an end, but still had a monster weekend as they ran third on Friday night in Tulare, CA and second on Saturday in Hanford, CA.

“We came up a couple of spots short, but it is nothing to hang our heads about,” Justin Sanders said. “We could have been a little better, but to run up front at a couple of places we don’t come to a ton together shows how strong this team is.”

Sanders got his weekend off and running in Tulare, CA on Friday night by timing the Thompson’s Buick-GMC/Thompson’s Jeep-Ram/Dale Miller Septic Inc. entry in second fastest in his qualifying group.

By way of his qualifying effort, the Aromas, CA pilot lined up on the pole of his heat race needing to secure a win to guarantee himself a position in the High Sierra Industries Dash.

Getting the jump over Kaleb Montgomery, Sanders would lead the duration of the eighth lap affair as he took the win and secured position in both the Dash as well as the impending 30-lap feature event.

Pocketing a fifth-place finish in the Dash, Sanders took the green flag from the third row for the 30-lap feature event.

On a slick Thunderbowl Raceway surface, the Aromas, CA driver would quickly jump up to third before he moved into second on a lap nine restart.

Pressuring Shane Golobic for the top spot, Sanders would soon have his hands full with a surging Dominic Scelzi.

Slipping back to third with just 10-laps remaining in the feature, it would turn into a torrid battle up front as three of the best in Nor Cal waged war on each other.

When the checkered flag was displayed, Sanders capped the Peter Murphy Classic opener off with a third-place finish.

Make the quick trip over to Hanford, CA for Saturday night’s finale, Sanders would continue to flex his muscles in the No. 4SA as he earned quick time honors in his qualifying group.

Going from fourth to second in his heat, Sanders advanced into the Pole Shuffle where he would win the shuffle and earn the right to lead the field to green.

Getting off to the early lead, Sanders led the first seven laps until an early restart saw Corey Day slide up in front of him to drop him back to second.

With Day out front, Sanders would stalk him as the leaders found traffic and began dicing it up with slower cars.

A surging Shane Golobic had a monster run and was able to take advantage of traffic to get by both Day and Sanders, just as Sanders got by Day and he would continue to run second.

A couple of late restarts allowed Sanders to attempt to get by Golobic, but he capped the night off with a runner up finish.

“We still have a little work to do to get ourselves better, but these places are both tricky and we don’t run on them a ton,” Sanders said. “Thanks to Dale Miller and his team for making the trip down, and I am glad we had two really good showings.”

The Dale Miller Motorsports team would like to thank Thompson’s Buick-GMC, Thompson’s Jeep-Ram, Dale Miller Septic Inc., North County Plastering, 24 Hour Road Side Service, Anrak Corporation, Smith Titanium, Absolute Auto Glass, Frank’s Body Shop, Champion Brands Racing Oil, Rider Racing Engines, Walker Performance Filtration, Factory Kahne Shocks, Vortex Wings, TJ Forged Wheels, FK Rod Ends, Triple X Race Co., King Racing Products, and A.R.T. Speed Equipment for their support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts- 4, Wins- 2, Top-5’s-4, Top-10’s-4

ON TAP: The next event for Dale Miller Motorsports and Justin Sanders is TBD at this time.

 

 

Ryan Robinson 8th in Hanford After Tulare DNF

PETERSEN MEDIA: Ryan Robinson and the Weiher Racing team recovered nicely on Saturday night. Getting caught up in someone else’s accident on Friday in Tulare, Robinson and company worked through day Saturday making repairs and came away with an eighth-place finish during the Peter Murphy Classic finale in Hanford, CA.

“Friday night we made the decision to switch to the ‘H’ tire and we had some early struggles,” Robinson said. “We found a pretty good balance and raced into the feature only to get caught up with a flipping car and end our night.”

Timing the Mako Farms Inc./LP Holdings/Roseville Precision Inc. backed no. 14w in fifth fastest in his group in Tulare, CA, Robinson would just miss the heat race inversion and he lined up in the third row of his heat race.

Losing a valuable position in his heat, Robinson would slip back to sixth and that would force him into the 15-lap ‘B’ where he took the green flag from the pole.

Despite several stoppages that led to double-file restarts, Robinson left the field in his wake as he won the semi with ease and transferred into the 30-lap feature event.

From the 21st starting position, Robinson began working his way through the field. Getting into 15th, Robinson would find himself in 14th for a lap 9 restart.

The restart would be devastating for Robinson’s night however as a flipping Chase Majdic made contact with Robinson’s entry and frame damage resulted in a DNF.

Working through Saturday to make repairs for Saturday’s finale in Hanford, CA, Robinson got off to a great start as he timed in fastest in his qualifying group and ended up second overall among the 40 cars checked in.

Finishing third in his heat race, Robinson transferred into the feature event as well as into the Pole Shuffle where his fifth-place finish put him in the third row to start the 30-lap Peter Murphy Classic feature event.

Slipping back a few positions in the early goings for the feature, Robinson could not seem to get going as he worked inside the Top-10.

When the feature event came to a close, Robinson capped his weekend off with an eighth-place finish.

“Really want to thank Todd and the guys for their hard work all weekend,” Robinson said. “The bad luck on Friday led to a long day Saturday, but we rebounded well and had really good speed.”

Weiher Racing would like to thank Mako Farms Inc., LP Holdings, Roseville Precision Inc., Escalon Body and Frame, Seth’s Racing Engines, Pettibone Builders, Sipes CC, The Holman Family, Square Tires, Papa Chuck, Dave Harvey Trucking, and Morrison Concrete for their continued support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-6, Wins-0, Top 5’s-0, Top 10’s-4

ON TAP: Robinson and the Weiher Racing team will be idle the next couple of weeks before resuming their SCCT slate on May 28th in Stockton, CA and May 29th in Marysville, CA.

Willie Croft Captures KWS Top-10 at Peter Murphy Classic

PETERSEN MEDIA- Traveling to central California over the weekend to take part in the fabled Peter Murphy Classic, Willie Croft would finish 12th during the opening night on Friday in Tulare, CA before an eighth-place result in Hanford, CA during Saturday’s finale.

“It was a fun weekend, and we ran pretty well,” Willie Croft said. “Thanks to my guys for all of their hard work, and hopefully we can be a few spots better this weekend in Petaluma, CA.”

Croft’s weekend got off to an interesting start on Friday, as he timed the Holey Smokes BBQ/Rudeen/Amerikote backed No. 29 in 13th fastest. With Friday also being ‘Friday the 13th’ Croft was awarded a bonus for the qualifying effort.

Lining up on the front row of his heat race, the Colfax, CA driver would have a nice battle with Dominic Scelzi for the top spot before he ultimately settled for a second-place finish.

With his second-place finish, Croft was securely in the 30-lap feature event as he took the green flag from the 14h starting position.

In a feature event that was mired with cautions and red flags, Croft would show speed when there was green flag action as he would run seventh in the race’s early stages.

Double-file restarts would hinder Croft as he would lose a couple of positions and find himself back in ninth. Slipping back to 10th, Croft would ultimately finish 12th when the opening night marathon feature drew to a close.

Saturday night the scene shifted to Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, CA where Croft would get timed in 15th fastest amongst the 31 drivers who made the trip for the Peter Murphy Classic finale.

Putting the Willie Croft Racing entry on the front row of his heat race, ‘Double Down’ finished third and again transferred directly into the 30-lap feature event where he took the green flag from 16th.

On another extremely slick racing surface, Croft would come to life when race went green. Working his way into 15th when the race came to life, Croft would use a restart to surge his way into 12th on the 11th lap.

Cracking the Top-10 on lap 13, Croft would continue to showcase a very fast car even with the track taking rubber.

Running well inside the Top-10, Croft would pick up two more positions as the leaders tangled and he capped his weekend off with an eighth-place finish.

“Qualifying really hurt us both nights, and with this format if you don’t get max qualifying points, you’re buried all night,” Croft said. “Starting that far back, I needed to be a bit more aggressive, but still picked up a couple of decent finishes and I am happy with how I felt.”

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

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-8, Wins-0, Top 5’s-2, Top 10’s-4.

ON TAP: Willie Croft returns to action this Saturday night in Petaluma, CA.

Henry Hard Charges at Peter Murphy Classic

PETERSEN MEDIA: Saturday night in Hanford, CA, Kalib Henry rallied from a tough qualifying showing and charged his way to a fifth-place finish with the King of the West Series during the Peter Murphy Classic.

“I tried everything in qualifying and we didn’t get timed in well and found ourselves in an early hole,” Kalib Henry said. “Luckily, we dug ourselves out the rest of the night and came home with a fifth-place finish.”

With 31 cars on hand on Saturday, Henry would just narrowly miss the heat race inversion as he timed the McColloch’s RV Repair/Davis Truck Painting/Driven Homes backed No. 17 entry in 17th fastest.

Lining up in the third row of his heat race, the Mather, CA driver would feel much better in his heat race, though passing proved to be at a premium. Holding on to the fifth and final lock in position, Henry was securely in the 30-lap feature event as he rolled off the starting grid from the 17th starting position.

On a very slick Keller Auto Speedway surface, it would be crucial to get off to a strong start with rubber going down the speedway being a very good possibility.

When the green flights flashed, Henry was hard on the throttle as he quickly moved into the 13th position as the opening laps clicked off quickly.

A couple of stoppages would lead to double file restarts and that would play into Henry’s advantage. Cracking the Top-10 on lap 10, Henry would work into eighth just prior to the race’s halfway point.

Continuing to make moves and grain spots as rubber started going down the surface, Henry took advantage of a miscue ahead of him and found himself up in fifth on the 21st lap.

With the field fully racing in rubber, Henry was able to keep his tires underneath him as he capped his night off with a great charge from 17th to fifth.

“I felt really good heading into the feature after how we ran in our heat,” Henry said. “I knew it was important to get going early with the track, and we were able to do just that. I want to thank my dad for letting us run his engine, and the McColloch’s for their continued support.”

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

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts: 3, Wins: 0, Top-5’s: 1, Top-10’s- 2

ON TAP: McColloch Motorsports and Kalib Henry are hoping to return to action in two weeks at Stockton Dirt Track with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour.

 

 

Monday’s Weather Washes Out The Week At Ohsweken Speedway
OHSWEKEN, Ont. (May 16, 2022) - Today’s heavy rainfall has forced Ohsweken Speedway management to postpone the events scheduled for this week. Both the Practice scheduled for Tuesday, May 17 and the Season Opener scheduled for Friday, May 20th have been pushed back one week. The Practice will now be Tuesday, May 24, with the Season Opener now scheduled for Friday May 27, 2022.

“The rains last night and this morning have taken us back a few steps,” said Speedway Owner Glenn Styres. “The crews cannot get out on the machines to put the finishing touches on the grounds. Some of the areas like on and off ramps still need a few days of dry weather to be groomed properly. With all of the major construction completed last week we were excited to welcome everyone back, but we really can’t take on anymore rain, so we made the tough decision to postpone.“

“It is definitely disappointing, but this is no different than the challenges we face each spring,” said Clinton Geoffrey, Speedway Manager. “Canceling Friday’s event this early is definitely out of the norm for us, but we do feel that it is important to let the grounds dry for a few more days before we fill the pits with heavy haulers.”

All cars competing at Ohsweken in 2022 are welcome to test on Practice night, including the track’s four weekly divisions, the Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars, Strickland’s GMC Crate Sprint Cars, Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks and HRW Automotive Mini Stocks.

Tuesday May 24 the pit gate will open at 5:00pm for competitors at a cost of $25 per driver and $10 per crew member. Cars are scheduled to be on track beginning at 6:30pm. Practice will alternate for divisions until 9:00pm.

WEATHER CONDITIONS PLAY HAVOC WITH RACE MEETING

Despite the sterling efforts to " bring in" and provide a suitably fast and safe racing surface after a week of Sydney's persistent rain, Speedway Promotions were forced to cancel the meeting midway through the fixture at Eastern Creek Speedway, Saturday, May 14.

The heavy track caused a delay to the start of the fixture despite wheel packing by Wingless Sprint competitors and Sprintcar hot laps.

The main straight was worst affected and the shadow of the grandstand prevented sufficient late afternoon sunlight to help dry the surface sufficiently.

The grader was unable to get onto the circuit and it proved a losing battle. Following a competitors meeting in consultation with Promotion, it was decided the surface could not be "brought in" to provide racing at its fastest and most exciting. Track preparation late in the week was hampered by the damage caused by rain during the week and Saturday was the first sunny day for several days.
Every effort was made to run the meeting under very difficult circumstances.

If you purchased tickets online, you can either use your tickets for any one of our upcoming events, or if you can't make it back, please email the office for a refund:
office@easterncreekspeedway.com.au

Pit tickets or tickets purchased at the venue can be used for any one of our upcoming events or you can post them to us to request a refund.

We would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone for attending and bearing with us, all endeavours were made to try to run the show despite more moisture coming up through the track.

Any derogatory or aggressive comments will be deleted - we are as devasted as you to not be able to go racing and will be investigating the drainage issues...

 

 

Story Behind 358 Sprint Car Rookie’s Late Start Is an Interesting One

Carlisle, PA – May 11, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Addicted2Dirt PR and Media Management (A2D PR) is happy to announce we have formed a new partnership with Kyle Keen Motorsports.

A2D PR will handle promotion of the race team and their marketing partners via press releases and social media, in addition to events, videos and other creative outlets. Race fans will consistently receive the latest information, including the team’s plans, inside stories, news and results.

“I’m excited to get started working with A2D. I always have a lot of ideas to help us grow our team and take care of our partners, but it can be difficult to find the time to do it properly. This new relationship will help us a ton with that.“, Kyle Keen commented.

About Kyle

Kyle Keen has been around racing his entire life, but the story of how he finally ended up behind the wheel himself is not what you would expect.

His father, Shawn Keen, raced Super Sportsmen in the mid-90’s, then 410 sprint cars from ’97 to ’03. After giving up the wheel, he owned cars for other notable wheelmen like Mark Smith and Skip Jackson.

His grandfather, the late Jesse Keen, was a staple in Central Pennsylvania sprint car racing. His untimely passing 10 years ago this month left a void in the racing community that simply cannot be filled. He was a highly respected man who got into racing by owning sprint cars, like the famous 5w that was driven by Randy Wolfe, and later backed Randy’s son Lucas when he took on the Outlaw tour. He went on to own highly successful cars that were piloted by some of the sports’ best, such as Tyler Walker and Daryn Pittman, along with many others.

Despite his family’s involvement in racing, Kyle was too busy as a two-sport athlete growing up; football and basketball. Racing just wasn’t on his radar at the time.

Fast forward to 2018 and along came iRacing, the cutting edge online racing simulator. Then 23 years old, Keen jumped in. And he was very good at it.

“I did really well on iRacing that year and I thought to myself, ‘I think I could drive a real race car’.“, Keen shared with a chuckle. “So, I talked to my dad, and we ended up buying a 305 sprint car and the things I needed to get started. The first year (2019) was ok, but the next year we really got going pretty good. We were always competitive, and we scored a bunch of top-1o’s.”

After racing in the highly competitive 305 sprint car division in 2019 and 2020, Kyle stepped out of the seat in 2021. He and his wife were working on buying a house and racing didn’t fit in the budget at the time. Instead, he sold his equipment and spent the race season serving as crew chief on friend Kenny Heffner’s 305 sprint car.

“I missed being behind the wheel last year, but I learned a lot about setting up these cars by working for Kenny.“, Keen said.

He couldn’t stay away for long. During the offseason, Keen bought some equipment and made the move up to the 358 sprint cars for the 2022 season.

“We’ve only run five races in the 358, but we’ve made all five features and we have one top-10. I’m racing against a bunch of guys who have a lot more laps than me, so I’ll take those results. I’m still learning obviously. We’ll keep getting better as the season goes. I believe we can be a regular top-10 team by the time the season wraps up.“, Keen commented.

“I want to thank my dad for everything he does, and I want to thank all my partners. I appreciate everything they do for me. I got a late start on this racing thing but with their help, I’m getting to do something I love. We’re going to do everything we can to give back to them and get them up front this year.“, Keen concluded.

Up Next

Kyle will join the 358 field at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, May 20th for their long-delayed 2022 debut at the legendary oval in the Fine Line Auto Body / Keen Parts / Doubling Gap Ranch / Shetron Aution & Equipment, LLC. / Wicked Dog Grille / Heishman Racing Fuels / Wicked Cushion / DL Lehman Construction, LLC. / GearHead Coffee / Jeremy Zarfos Photography / Coyles Lawn Maintenance / One Nine Design, No.17k.

FLOWDYNAMICS DRIVERS RACING AT THE BAKERSFIELD SPEEDWAY SATURDAY

(Ontario, CA, May 12, 2022) The USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series returns to action this Saturday night, May 14th, for round #9 of the 2022 season at Scott Schweitzer’s Bakersfield Speedway. It will be the first of two appearances for the Ontario, California-based Flowdynamics duo of Matt McCarthy and Logan Williams on the Kern County Oval in 2022.
 

The return to Bakersfield will also serve as an anniversary for Williams. The Yorba Linda, California driver made his first appearance in a Flowdynamics car at the track on May 8, 2021. Despite being out of the cockpit for a couple of years, Williams showed no track rust that night and placed seventh.

Heading into this week’s race, Williams, and teammate Matt McCarthy both have perfect attendance making all eight races thus far in 2022. They each hold top 10 spots in the season-long championship standings with Williams sixth and McCarthy ninth. Williams is a mere 16-points out of fifth. Riverside, California’s McCarthy is 36-markers out of eighth place in the standings.

The duo comes into this Saturday’s race after getting a week off last week. In the last race at Perris Auto Speedway on April 30th, Williams placed 11th in the 30-lap main. McCarthy’s night was filled with nothing but frustration as the team chased a problem that turned out to be a collapsed fuel line that resulted in him not turning in a single competitive lap.

After the trip to Kern County on Saturday, the Flowdynamics team will return to Perris for the annual “Salute to Indy” on May 28th. That event will be followed by two races in June. The first will be at the Ventura Raceway on the 11th before returning to the series home track at Perris on the 25th.

Fans who would like to attend Saturday’s USAC/CRA race at Bakersfield can find the track at 5001 N. Chester Ext., in Bakersfield (93308). The track website is http://www.bakersfieldspeedway.com/ and the office phone number is (661) 393-3373. The pit gate will open at 2:00 p.m., spectator gates at 4:00, and racing will start at 6:00. Adult tickets are $20.00. Seniors and military get in for $18.00. For kids 6-12 it is $5.00 and children 5 and under are free.

McCarthy and Williams would like to thank the following sponsors for making the 2021 season possible. Flowdynamics Inc., JFK Design Build, Cal Therm Mechanical Insulators, CRC Component Repair Co., Encore Gas and Supply, Drink-Pac, and Benic Enterprises. If you or your company would like to come on board and join up with one of the fastest rising sprint car teams west of the Mississippi, please contact John McCarthy at 909 930-5522 or mailto:john@flodyinc.com

Wayne County Speedway

ORRVILLE – When the touring acts of a traveling racing series visits a local dirt track, it’s often akin to bringing a knife to a gun fight.

There will be more than a handful of regulars locked and loaded for battle, though, Saturday night at the O’Reilly Auto Parts Wayne County Speedway.

In a rare treat for the fans, the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions sprint cars will share the spotlight with the Zimmer's Auto Center United Late Model Series at Orrville’s Historic Oval. The ultra-competitive McKenzie Concrete super stocks will also join the fray at the 3-8-mile paperclip-shaped layout.

Gates will open at 3 p.m. with warmups slated for 6 and racing at 7.

More than a handful of the WCS’s Malcuit Tavern super late model competitors will be chomping at the bit, too, as the series will be making its season debut after an unseasonably wet and cold spring has cancelled three of the five scheduled events.

A year ago, during the ULMS first-ever visit to WCS, Pennsylvania-based driver Max Blair picked up the victory followed by ULMS regular and 2022 feature winner Jared Miley, legendary Chub Frank, West Virginia’s Corey Conley and WCS regular Mitch Caskey. Caskey will be among the contenders on Saturday, along with fellow WCS stars JR Gentry, Ryan Markham and Doug Drown, to name a few, who represent one of the strongest weekly fields in Ohio. Drown has recorded a pair of career ULMS wins.

Former national traveling star Greg Satterlee is the current ULMS point leader, and will be joined Miley, current Port Royal (PA) point leader Colton Flinner, Dave Stamm, West Virginia pilot Matt Cosner, Attica regular Ryan Missler, and Eric Wilson Jr.

The 30-lap main event will pay $3,500 to win.

Although the Pine Tree Towing and Recovery sprint cars have built an equally impressive base at the WCS, unseating one of the top ASCoC regulars may be a more challenging task. Defending champion, and current point leader Tyler Courtney, and a 2021 Kings Royal winner at Eldora, has elevated his Clausen-Marshall race team into one of the country's best, with fellow Indiana pilots Justin Peck and Parker Price-Miller not far behind.

Peck has numerous central Pennsylvania victories to his credit, while Price-Miller defeated a stout field last week in the Husets Speedway (South Dakota) opener. Cap Henry and Hunter Schurenberg have picked up ASCoC wins this season, with Bill Balog, Zeb Wise, Cory Eliason, Kyle Reinhardt, and Tim Shaffer providing the ASCoC with one of its strongest nucleuses of racers in recent years. Former USAC regulars Chris Windom and Kevin Thomas Jr., Australian Scott Bogucki and central PA. Pilot Bradley Howard also call the ASCoC home.

WCS has attracted a field of 20-plus sprint cars this season in both events, with Cody Bova and Danny Sams III notching wins. Bova is expected on Saturday, with Broc Martin, Andrew Palker, Chris Myers, Ricky Peterson, Danny Mumaw, Jordan Ryan, and Henry Malcuit among the challengers. Mumaw provided the most recent bid for an upset victory during the 2017 Pete Jacobs Memorial. Mumaw collided with Joey Saldana while leading on lap 16 allowing Caleb Helms to claim his first-ever ASCoC win.

As always, fans can log on to facebook and twitter for more information on Wayne County Speedway at WCSOhio.

Cook Motorsports Turns Full Attention to Sean Becker for Duration of 2022

PETERSEN MEDIA- When plans were made for the 2022 season, Cook Motorsports intended on running a Washington based schedule with Jayson Bright, and a California and Oregon focused schedule with Sean Becker. With weather wreaking havoc in the Pacific Northwest thus far, Cook Motorsports has opted to move forward with their focus being on Becker as they hope to expand their schedule.

“With the way the weather has been in Washington to date, and some other conflicts that have arose, we have made the decision to make Sean Becker our focus for the duration of the 2022 season,” Blake Cook said. “Our team would like to wish Jayson Bright and his family all the best as they continue to compete in their family car. Hopefully down the road we can revisit this and put something together that suits both of us.”

With yet another cancellation hindering Cook Motorsports this coming weekend at Skagit Speedway, the team’s next event with will be ever popular Marvin Smith Memorial at Cottage Grove Speedway in Cottage Grove, OR May 28-29th.

“I have been having a ton of fun racing with Blake and the Cook Motorsports team,” Sean Becker said. “The car has been extremely fast at every track we have gone to. I am extremely grateful they want to race more with me, and I know we’re capable of winning wherever we show up.”

As the team continues to put the pieces together to add a 410ci engine to their arsenal, and are hoping to hit the King of the West event at Willamette Speedway in Lebanon, OR the night before the Marvin Smith Memorial.

Another additional date for Becker and Cook Motorsports is the Summer Nationals at Chico, CA’s Silver Dollar Speedway on June 3rd and 4th.

While Cook Motorsports continues to make plans with Becker, the additional races are dependent on the team acquiring additional sponsorship to help offset the ever-rising fuel and Hoosier tire costs.

If any business is interested in partnering with Cook and Becker, please contact Petersen Media at Sales@PetersenMediainc.com, or contact Blake Cook directly at info@cookscontractors.com.

Cook Motorsports would like to thank Absolute Plumbing, Cook’s Contracting, CSR Builders, Shark Racing Engines, Cottage Grove Inn, Primetime Designs, Highline Performance, Les Schwab, and Cascade Pizza for their support.

JEFF DYER DOING DOUBLE DUTY SATURDAY AT THE BAKERSFIELD SPEEDWAY

(Yucca Valley, CA, May 11, 2022) When the USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series and California Lightning Sprint Cars converge on the Bakersfield Speedway this Saturday night, May 14th, one of the busiest guys on the premises will be Jeff Dyer. The longtime open-wheel racer will be driving a car in each class and will be hopping back and forth between the two all night long.

Deyr, Jeff 3-26.jpg Jeff Dyer in the Cal Smith/Dyer Motorsports #39 earlier this year at Perris Auto Speedway. Charles Fawcett photo.

Dyer comes into the CLS portion of Saturday’s show ranked fourth in the championship standings. That is despite missing one event when the two series were racing on the same night at different tracks, and he opted to run his 410. While he is fourth in the standings, his 2.75 finishing average is the best of the series regulars with four or more main event starts. In his four CLS starts in 2022, he has not finished worse than fourth with two runner-up finishes, a third, and a fourth. His two starts with the CLS at Bakersfield produced the third and fourth-place results.

When Dyer, who resides in Yucca Valley, California, hits the track in the Cal Smith/Dyer Motorsports #39 on the USAC/CRA side of Saturday’s program, he will be 22nd in series points. His last outing came at the Mohave Valley Raceway on April 23rd. In that race, he was running a new engine that came out of Missouri. However, he lost his brakes in the B Main and was done for the night.

Fans who would like to attend Saturday’s open-wheel show in Bakersfield can find the track at 5001 N. Chester Ext., in Bakersfield (93308). The track website is http://www.bakersfieldspeedway.com/ and the office phone number is (661) 393-3373. The pit gate will open at 2:00 p.m., spectator gates at 4:00, and racing will start at 6:00. Adult tickets are $20.00. Seniors and military get in for $18.00. For kids 6-12 it is $5.00 and children 5 and under are free.

As usual, Dyer is not the only member of the family racing on Saturday. His teenage son Seth will be back in action at John Aden’s Wheel2Wheel Raceway on the San Bernardino County Fairgrounds in Victorville. Racing a Speedway Sprint Car, Seth enters Saturday’s event fifth in the restrictor class standings.

If you wish to catch Seth in action at Wheel2Wheel, the track is located on the San Bernardino County Fairgrounds at 14800 Seventh Street in Victorville (92395). Gates will open at 5:00 p.m. and racing will follow at 6:00. The website for W2W is http://wheel2wheelraceway.com/ and the phone number is (760) 247-3987.

Dyer is racing in memory of his grandfather Glenn Sels throughout the 2022 season. He has contested four of the first eight series races this year and has a best finish of 13th at Perris Auto Speedway on March 26th.

Wilson Bound for All Star Tripleheader in Michigan and Ohio This Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - BENTON RIDGE, Ohio (May 11, 2022) - Greg Wilson will be competing with the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions most weekends throughout the next two months.

The Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics and DNC Hydraulics supported driver who pilots the Seeling Motorsports No. 97 sprint car joins the series for a tripleheader this Friday at I-96 Speedway in Lake Odessa, Mich., during the Mace Thomas Classic; Saturday at Wayne County Speedway in Orrville, Ohio; and Sunday at Waynesfield Raceway Park in Waynesfield, Ohio.

"I'm pretty excited because things have been going well," Wilson said. "With the cancelation last week it gave us more time to get some stuff done. Some things we wanted to get ready for summer-time we got done. Now I'm excited to get back to tracks we've ran good at."

Wilson charged from 15th to seventh during his most recent All Star race at I-96 Speedway in August of last year. His most recent top 10 at Wayne County Speedway occurred in 2019 and Wilson earned a top-five result at Waynesfield Raceway Park last season.

"I've had some good runs and won some races at I-96 in my career," he said. "We've been competitive at Wayne County, including at the Dean Jacobs last year when we broke. Waynesfield is a cool place to go race. It's a neat little bullring."

Wilson enters the upcoming tripleheader with a podium performance during three straight weekends that he has competed. Last weekend's World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series event rained out.

Dover Finishes 12th at Park Jefferson and Huset's

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (May 11, 2022) - Jack Dover recorded a pair of 12th-place results last weekend while competing in two different sprint cars.

The action began on Saturday at Park Jefferson International Speedway in North Sioux City, S.D., where Dover drove his No. 53 during the Midwest Sprint Touring Series event.

"The track was taking rubber in hot laps," he said. "I put a new tire on for the heat and blew off both rears. I put on new rear tires for the feature, which was shortened to 15 laps. I only made it to 14 laps before I blew the right rear running second."

Dover advanced from fourth to second in his heat race. He had maneuvered into the runner-up position after lining up fifth in the feature, but a blown tire at the end of the race dropped him to 12th.

"I snuck up to second pretty early on, by around Lap 5," he said. "I know I was abusing my tires, but I figured they could survive for 15 laps. I could have taken it easier on the tires and finished the race, but I figured they could have lasted 15 laps. I just came up one lap short."

Dover ventured to Huset's Speedway on Sunday for his season debut behind the wheel of the Rick and Chris Bowers' No. 81 sprint car. The team timed in 17th quickest during qualifying before advancing from sixth to fifth place in a heat race and from 15th to 12th in the A Main.

"It's not what we were wanting, but it was the first night out and trying to get a feel for the car again," Dover said. "We didn't have it free enough so I was having to cheat the cushion in qualifying and the heat race. We switched gears after the heat once we had the car freed up so now we have a better baseline to start with this Sunday.

"The first half of the feature we were right there with Kerry Madsen. Toward the end our car faded a bit. I think we know a change to help that. It was just another learning night."

Dover plans on piloting his sprint car this Friday at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb., and Saturday at Off Road Raceway in Norfolk, Neb., with the Midwest Sprint Touring Series. He will return to Huset's Speedway on Sunday with the Bowers Family.

Gravel Tackling World of Outlaws Races at Lincoln and Williams Grove This Week

Inside Line Promotions - WINDOM, Minn. (May 11, 2022) - Big Game Motorsports driver David Gravel is facing a trio of races versus the Pennsylvania Posse this week.

The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series invades The Keystone State on Wednesday for the Duramax Drydene Gettysburg Clash at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa., and on Friday and Saturday for the Morgan Cup hosted by Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa.

"I attack the week with confidence," Gravel said. "They are tracks I'm comfortable at and we've gone to for so many years you know what to expect. We'll focus on trying to get a couple of good qualifying laps in and putting ourselves on the front row of our heat race."

Gravel earned a World of Outlaws win at Lincoln Speedway in 2017. He advanced from ninth to fourth place last year during his lone race at the track with Big Game Motorsports.

"It's important everywhere nowadays with the competition to start up front," he said. "It's all depending on track conditions. Lincoln could be a very racy track or not. If they have it wide with a thin bottom it's pretty racy."

Gravel has recorded eight World of Outlaws victories at Williams Grove Speedway. His first occurred in 2014 before scoring a trio of triumphs in 2017 and two in both 2019 and 2020. Gravel produced four top 10s in six World of Outlaws races at the track last year.

"Williams Grove is a unique place and it's definitely difficult to pass," he said. "You do everything in your power to make the dash and put yourself in a position for a good run. I've been there enough that I know how to pay attention to the track to put ourselves in a good spot."

Gravel enters this week's action ranked third in the World of Outlaws championship standings - only 10 points behind second place and 30 points out of the lead.

Austin Hartmann makes strides in IRA’s return to Sycamore Speedway

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) May 11, 2022 – In just his second-ever event in the seat of a 410 Sprint Car, Austin Hartmann and 87A Hartmann Racing paid a visit to a brand new track for the team, as the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association returned to Sycamore Speedway in Maple Park, Ill. for the first time in 35 years on Saturday, May 7.

Hartmann was among 26 IRA competitors to sign in for the IRA’s first event at the Chicago-area three-eighths mile clay oval since the 1987 season. The Plymouth, Wis. driver opened his maiden Sycamore Speedway voyage by turning in the 23rd fastest qualifying lap in 15.806 seconds.

After rolling off eighth in the second eight-lap IRA heat race, Hartmann drove a steady race to move up one spot in the running order en route to a seventh-place finish.

Hartmann then fired off from the 21st starting position in the 30-lap IRA main event. The 2020 Midwest Sprint Car Association and Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Car Rookie of the Year Award winner clicked off consistent laps and avoided potential danger to improve three spots during the A main and claim his second consecutive 18th-place main event finish in the race, which was won by Scotty Thiel.

“Since it was our first time at Sycamore, we basically took a look at the track and compared it to similar tracks we’ve raced at and went from there,” Hartmann said. “I'd say it was like Plymouth, but definitely with different clay for sure though.

“The car performed well throughout the night,” he said. “In qualifying, we weren't able to keep heat in the engine, so it didn't run the best. We adjusted and adapted throughout the night with track conditions changing. Overall, I'd say it was a good learning night.”

With no Bumper to Bumper IRA Sprint Car events scheduled this coming weekend, the 87A Hartmann Racing team will take the upcoming weekend off in preparation for a three-race IRA swing in conjunction with the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions Friday, May 20 at Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wis., Saturday, May 21 at The Plymouth Dirt Track the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. and Sunday, May 22 at Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wis.

“Our next race will be Friday, May 20 at Wilmot Raceway to start our three-race swing with the All Stars, which will be joining forces with the IRA for the weekend,” Hartmann said. “The team and myself are excited about the opportunity to race in these three big events.”

The 87A Hartmann Racing team has assembled a strong group of partners in support of the team's maiden voyage with the Bumper to Bumper IRA Series, including Kristine Hartmann of Pleasant View Realty, Shufflebotham Tree Service, Call Girls Motorsports, Pallet Works LLC, AF Inc., Bennett Transport Inc., SCA Inc., Gretchen Tillman New American Funding, Classic Title Services, CP Services, Cobblestone Landscaping, Jensen Sales & Services, Lee’s Color Studio, Dave’s Fabrication, RC Custom Design, Hepfner Racing Products, Pit Road Apparel, the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series and Sage Fruit.

The 87A Hartmann Racing team consists of Hunter Annis, Karlee Hartmann, Andrew Shufflebotham, Caitlin Shaw, Jarrett Neese and Kristine Hartmann.

Lucas Oil Speedway Spotlight: POWRi Midget champ Wiedeman eager for Open Wheel Showdown

 WHEATLAND, MO. (May 11, 2022) - Bryant Wiedeman is about to wrap up his sophomore year at Colby High School in western Kansas and that means his focus can shift full-on to his racing endeavors on dirt tracks across the country.

Being a race-car driver definitely is an attention-getter among friends and fellow students.

“I think they’re really proud and enjoy keeping up with my racing,” Wiedeman said. “It’s cool they care that much and want to watch and see how I grow in the sport."

The 16-year-old Wiedeman definitely is an up-and-comer in the world of open-wheel racing, as the reigning Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget Series champion. He will be at Lucas Oil Speedway on Saturday for the 11th annual Impact Signs Awnings Wraps Open Wheel Showdown.

In addition to the POWRi Midgets, the tripleheader of action will include the ASCS Warrior Region Presented by Impact Signs Awnings Wraps and the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region Presented by Smiley’s Racing Products, plus the POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprints.

“I’m really excited to go back there,” Wiedeman said of Lucas Oil Speedway, where he finished third in this race a year ago, his first action on the Wheatland oval. “I recall it being a pretty technical track, opposite on both ends. One was top and the other bottom and it was very challenging, but definitely a fun track to race at.

“Last year was a learning curve for most places I went. This being my second year, I have a better chance at a lot of these tracks because I’ve been there and know how to get around them now. I think it’ll definitely help me out this weekend.”

Unlike many young drivers, Wiedeman did not grow up in a racing family. He’s a first-generation racer who started racing go-karts at the ago of six after he and dad Brent were invited to a go-kart race by friends.

“I think we both fell in love with it and it went from there,” Bryant said. “We bought a go-kart and really enjoyed that, moved up to the micros and (eventually) found myself racing a Keith Kunz Midget.”

For those not familiar with Midget cars, Keith Kunz Motorsports is one of the iconic teams in the sport. Kunz has been instrumental in the development of many of the sport's stars, including Kyle Larson and Christopher Bell.

Bryant Wiedeman said the knowledge that Kunz and other team members impart is priceless to a young driver.

“It’s a good thing to have on my side,” he said. “That’s a big deal and a leg up I have on the competition.”

Wiedeman won more than 100 races in seven years in go-karts and moved into the micro-sprints where he caught the attention of Kunz. In his first full season for KKM in 2021, Wiedeman said he exceeded expectations as a POWRi National Midget rookie, becoming the youngest national champion. He posted three wins, 18 top-five finishes and 28 top-10s in 30 events.

“I was just going into the year looking for Rookie of the Year championships,” Wiedeman said. “But winning POWRi was a huge deal to me and my team. We’re definitely looking to progress off that this year and looking forward to seeing how we can perform in USAC points as well.”

Joining Wiedeman at Wheatland will be fellow KKM drivers Brenham Crouch, Mariah Ede and Gavin Miller.

Early in the POWRi National Midget Series, Wiedeman holds a 10-point lead over Cannon McIntosh of Bixby, Oklahoma. Emerson Axsom won the Open Wheel Showdown race in 2021.

Pit and spectator gates open at 4 p.m. Saturday with hot laps at 6 and racing at 7:05.

Admission prices: Adults (16 and up) - $25 Seniors (62 and up)/Military - $22 Youth (6-15) - $10 Kids (5 and under) - FREE Family Pass - $60 (Click Here for more information) Pit Pass - $40

Austin McCarl Third at Huset’s Speedway Opener

PETERSEN MEDIA: Turning in another impressive run through the field on Saturday night at Knoxville Raceway, Austin McCarl was equally as impressive during Sunday’s season opening event at Huset’s Speedway as he earned a third-place finish.

“I really have to thank Weldon Offill for making this all possible, as well as the Offill family, and this great group of people that has been behind me for year,” Austin McCarl said. “We struggled to time in well again on Saturday at Knoxville, but raced really well again, and on Sunday at Huset’s we have a really complete night and we ended up third.”

Sunday night at the South Dakota facility, McCarl opened his night up by timing the Country Builders/Walkers/Tucker Trucking/Kolthoff Electric backed No. 88 entry in 5th fastest amongst the 27 cars that were checked in to raise the curtain on the season.

Lining up third in heat race competition, McCarl would gain a couple valuable points by way of his second place finish, and it would be good enough to lock him into the redraw.

Pulling the four, McCarl would line his machine up in the second row on the famed South Dakota bullring. When the race went green, McCarl settled into the fourth spot as the leaders quickly reached the back of the field.

Working his way into third on lap 12, McCarl would make a big move at the halfway point of the race to take over the second spot as he battled with Aaron Reutzel and Parker Price-Miller.

In heavy traffic, McCarl would fall back to third two laps later. With traffic very dense, McCarl would keep the lead duo in his sights but simply ran out of time to mount a charge for the top two spots as he closed his weekend out with a third-place finish.

Saturday night was a return trip to Knoxville Raceway where the Altoona, IA native timed the Ochoco West/Brown and Miller/Offill Family farms entry in seventh fastest in group ‘B’ as time trials were separated into two flights with the overflowing car count.

Finishing fifth in his heat race, ‘The Big Unit’ would lock into the feature event where he would roll off the starting grid from the 18th starting position just one week removed from lining up 17th.

With the feature running all 20-laps non-stop, it would be a little more difficult to make up ground at the famed ½ mile, but McCarl still gave it a valid effort. Amidst a very stout field of cars, McCarl picked up 11 positions in a very rapid-fire style feature event and earned another Top-10 finish at the track as he took the checkered flag in the seventh position.

“Lining up 18th at Knoxville is tough in general, and to line up 18th against the field we had on Saturday was brutal,” McCarl said. “Still, we raced very well and I am happy to get another Top-10 out of it after starting so far back. Sunday night, it felt great to be back at Huset’s and we had a really good car. The track got tricky in the feature, but we put it on the podium.”

Austin McCarl and Country Builders Racing would like to thank Country Builders, Ochoco West Lumber, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, Walkers, Tucker Trucking, Kolthoff Electric, MAAS Brothers Powder Coating, Offill Family Farms, Stealth Cam, Bosma Family Farms, Muddy, HRP, Penske Racing Shocks, A.R.T. Enterprise, Engler Machine, Aurora Rod Ends, Schoenfeld, Wilwood, Smith Ti, Kistler Engines, Rider Racing Engines, Moyle Engines, Justice Brothers, SeaFoam, Hinchman Indy, Bell Helmets, Maxim Chassis, B. Scadden Design, and Octane Ink for their continued support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races: 10, Wins: 0, Top 5’s: 3, Top 10’s: 4

ON TAP: Country Builders Racing and Austin McCarl will be right back to it this Saturday night at Knoxville Raceway and on Sunday night at Huset’s Speedway.

Liggett Fourth at Placerville After Entertaining Race Long Battle for Lead

PETERSEN MEDIA: Austin Liggett was part of a multi car battle for the race lead at Placerville Speedway that had fans on the edge of their seat. Though the final result is a fourth, Liggett showcased a very stout car during the 30-lap feature event.

“The end result is a bummer with how good our car was, and how fun that race was,” Austin Liggett said. “We had a great race going that I know the fans enjoyed, and if it wasn’t for hitting the curb in turns 1-2 wrong, our finish definitely would have been better.”

With 23 cars checking in for USAC Western States Midget Series action at Placerville Speedway, Liggett timed the Excel Environmental Services/Liggett Trucking/Tool Technology backed No. 83 in sixth fastest in time trials.

Lining up fifth in his heat race, the Tracy, CA native turned Linden, CA resident would work his way forward and tally a second-place finish.

Finishing in a great position, Liggett would find himself on the pole of what would be a very entertaining 30-lap feature event. Getting the jump, Liggett would lead early, however a slew of stoppages would prevent him from getting into an early rhythm.

Getting into an extended green flag run, Liggett would make headway as he used the low groove of the speedway and led laps early at Placerville as he set a torrid pace. As he continued to run the bottom to perfection, behind him Jake Andreotti was coming alive on a very thick cushion that had built up around the entire speedway.

Putting on a torrid battle up front, Andreotti would use his momentum to race into the race lead on the 12th lap before Liggett was able to power back by on the 14th lap.

With Andreotti ultimately having issues, Liggett would now feel pressure from Michael Faccinto. With Andreotti showing Liggett the top of the track, Liggett would change his line and began pounding the cushion himself as he exchanged the top spot with Faccinto numerous times before a yellow halted progress.

Back underway, the dual for the top stop would continue, as Faccinto was able to get the lead on the 25th lap.

With Liggett not going away, he would look to deliver a counter punch the next lap, however his machine would hit the cushion wrong and get him out of shape as he lost two spots and fell to fourth.

While running through traffic, Liggett would be unable to make up the lost ground as he closed his night out with a fourth-place finish.

“When Faccinto got by after that late restart, I had a shot to get him back, but I got my car upset on the curb and it cost us a few spots,” Liggett said. “It is a little disappointing to end up fourth after those battles up front, but we had a great car and I’m confident we will be good in a few weeks when we get back after it. Huge thanks to My Mom, Dad, Landon, Angela, and Ali for all of their help all night long.”

Austin Liggett Racing would like to thank Excel Environmental Services, Liggett Trucking, Tool Technology, Hurst Fabrications, Maxwell Industries, Shine Photography, and ZMAX Racing Oil for their support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-5, Wins-1, Top 5’s-2, Top 10’s-4

ON TAP: Liggett is slated to return to action on June 18th at Merced Speedway.

Henderson and Sandvig Lead First Laps of the Season During First Two Race Weekend of 2022

Brandon, SD – May 11, 2022

Justin Henderson and Mike Sandvig Motorsports took part in two events last weekend with a trip to Knoxville Raceway on Saturday and Huset’s Speedway on Sunday.

The two-race weekend netted the duo a season-best third-place finish at Knoxville on Saturday and a seventh-place finish at Huset’s on Sunday.

“For the first weekend with two races, it was not a bad weekend at all,” said Henderson. “We’ve got a lot of racing ahead of us this season and weekends like this will go a long way in preparing us for a busy race season.”

As result of multiple rainouts across the country, a whopping 43 drivers made the trek to Knoxville on Saturday. Undeterred by the added competition, Henderson began the evening by timing in second quickest in a qualifying flight with a fastest lap of 15.915 seconds. This marked the third consecutive week that Henderson has been among the top two fastest qualifiers to start the night at the Sprint Car Capital of the World.

“When you can qualify well, it makes the night a lot easier” he said. “It might as well have been an Outlaw show with all the drivers there, but I say bring them all as that’s really the only way you’ll ever know how you stack up truly.”

He backed up the impressive qualifying performance by advancing three positions in a heat race to finish third and lock himself into the A-main.

“We got a good start on the heat race and the starts are so important at Knoxville with their format,” said Henderson. “We got by a car early and that means so much as you don’t want to get stretched out early or you’ll ruin your night just like that.”

Lining up from the inside-second row for the feature, Henderson quickly moved into the runner-up position by the completion of lap three. Staying glued to the bottom of the Speedway, he took over the top spot on lap six and led the next ten laps of the event maneuvering in and out of lapped traffic with ease. With five laps remaining, he had to break his momentum to avoid making contact with a fast closing Carson Macedo and as a result he fell to second. He settled into the runner-up spot over the next four laps before falling to third on the final circuit.

“I honestly didn’t even know Carson was there as we had been going so well in traffic, but it definitely made me checkup and I broke my momentum,” he said. “It wasn’t a dirty move or anything like that and he did what he was supposed to do. I thought I might be able to get back to him, but I didn’t make a great decision on getting past a few lapped cars and it cost me a shot at the win and ultimately second.”

They next headed to Huset’s Speedway on Sunday, where Henderson entered the night as the defending track champion in the 410 Sprint Car division. He kicked of their 2022 Opening Day program by qualifying fourth quickest out of 27 cars in attendance with a fastest lap of 10.784 seconds before finishing where he started – third – in a heat race,

He lined up fifth for the 25-lap feature event but struggled to make gains during the A-main and took the checkered flag in the seventh position. The top ten was Henderson’s third in four starts to begin the 2022 racing season.

“The car was good, but it was just a bunch of misfortunate events all night,” he said. “We made some bad moves on the track that kind of kept us scrambling, but I think the car was pretty good.”

Next up for Henderson and Sandvig will be another weekend doubleheader at Knoxville Raceway on Saturday and Huset’s Speedway on Sunday. While Henderson currently sits on top of the 410 Sprint Car point standings at Knoxville and the team has been consistent with speed to kick off 2022, he’s not focused on the point lead and instead looking to find victory lane.

“To be leading the points now says we are good and have speed, but right now we are focused on finding victory lane and I think we’re really already looking towards the Knoxville Nationals,” said Henderson. “I think every time you pull into Knoxville you need to be working on your program for that weekend and to this point, we’re making gains and building towards that. We’ve got early speed and we’ve got a good car, which will be huge come Nationals weekend. Now we just need to find ourselves a win to back it up.”

Kerry Madsen Charges Hard in Midwest as Team Now Heads Back to California

PETERSEN MEDIA- Getting back to Knoxville Raceway over the weekend, as well as taking part in the Huset’s Speedway opener, Kerry Madsen was very strong. Though circumstances put him deep in both starting lineups, the Australian native flexed some muscle aboard his Roth Motorsports entry.

“We are really starting to figure things out with our cars and engine package, and we are really fast right now,” Kerry Madsen said. “Format kind of put us mid-pack at Knoxville, and then we had a minor issue hinder our qualifying effort on Sunday, but we ran well in both feature events, and I am hoping we can put this thing in victory lane while we race in Central California this weekend which is the home of Roth Motorsports.”

Saturday night at Knoxville Raceway, Madsen would get off to a very good start amidst a loaded field as he timed the Roth Enterprises/HR Livestock Transportation/Jason, Tara, and Cole Roth Cattle Co. backed No. 83JR mount in fourth fastest in ‘Group B’ qualifying.

Lining up fifth in his heat race, Madsen was able to pick up valuable points as he finished fourth and locked himself into the impending 20-lap feature event.

Putting the Toyota powered Roth Motorsports entry in the sixth row, Madsen would impress on lookers as he lived up to his ‘Mad Man’ mantra as he worked around the famed ½ mile.

Passing cars at will, Madsen would make a late move to get into the top-five as he then battled with Aaron Reutzel for fourth. Getting the spot briefly, Madsen would ultimately cap his charge from 12th off with a fifth-place finish.

“We were a little bit of a victim of the format and ended up starting 12th, but we were awesome in a really fast paced 20-lap feature,” Madsen noted.

Sunday night, Madsen and the Roth Motorsports team made the trip to Brandon, South Dakota where they took part in the Huset’s Speedway season opening event.

Enduring a minor mechanical issue in time trials, Madsen would still time in 13th fastest of the 27 cars checked in aboard the Roth Investments/Speedway Engines/Toyota/TRD backed machine.

Starting and finishing fifth in his heat race, Madsen would again find himself mid-pack on the starting grid as he took the green flag from the 14th starting spot.

Just as he did at Knoxville the night before, Madsen would make his presence known as he quickly worked the high banked bullring to perfection.

Racing through the Top-10, Madsen would cap his night off with a sixth place finish as the team now heads towards California for this weekend’s Peter Murphy Classic.

“We were really fast at Bristol, and we continued to have that same speed this past weekend and it has Paul Baines, Gravy, and our team really excited,” Madsen said. “Big thanks to Dennis and Teresa Roth for letting us have some fun in the Midwest the last month, now hopefully we can get them in victory lane during a home weekend for them in Tulare and Hanford, CA.”

The Roth Motorsports team would like to thank Roth Enterprises, HR Livestock Transportation, Jason, Tara, And Cole Roth Cattle Co., Roth Investments, Speedway Engines, Toyota, TRD, Mobil1, FK Rod Ends, Vahlco Wheels, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, Kent Performance, Kaeding Performance, and Smith Titanium for their support.

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

Woodhull Raceway Postponement Now Sets Up PST Platinum Tour Opener at Outlaw Speedway on Tuesday, May 17

(Dundee, NY) It has undoubtedly been a unique start to the 2022 season for the 20th season of the A-Verdi Storage Containers Patriot Sprint Tour. Between delays in getting tires supplied for the Outlaw Spring Nationals and then Mother Nature playing a factor this past weekend at Woodhull Raceway, the tour will now try to begin their season on a unique Tuesday night event at Outlaw Speedway.

The Woodhull Raceway event has been rescheduled for Saturday, July 23.

As previously announced, in all events in 2022, this race will pay $3,000 to win and $300 to qualify to go towards the $5,000 to win the championship in the 11 race season.

Outlaw Speedway is the most storied track in the organization's history hosting well over 50 events and some of the highest paying races. The Patriots will be joining the Short Track Super Series and the crate sportsman for just a three-division program.

Tuesday's race will be the Patriot's only event held in May before an aggressive June schedule when the tour visits three half-mile tracks in Selinsgrove (June 11), Utica Rome (June 17), and Fonda (June 25).

In the 2021 season opener at Outlaw Speedway, Davie Franek and Jordan Thomas went wing to wing, lap after lap, where Davie Franek took home the win. In the Outlaw Summer Nationals event, Kunkletown, Pennsylvania's Ryan Smith got by Jared Zimbardi in the final laps to score the win. After winning his first career series championship, Jordan Thomas was also a winner at Outlaw Speedway during the October Dutch Hoag Memorial weekend.

All these drivers, among many others, are expected to be in attendance come Tuesday night for the $3000 payday.

If you cannot make it, Tuesday night's event will be streaming on Flo Racing. For more information, fans can visit patriotsprinttour.com and connect with us socially by liking us on Facebook and following @PatriotSprints on Instagram and Twitter.

 

 

Sprint Car Challenge Tour set for a Central Valley double at Peter Murphy Classic

By Gary Thomas

Tulare, CA – May 10, 2022…The Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Elk Grove Ford and Abreu Vineyards is locked and loaded to take part in both nights of the “Peter Murphy Classic” this Friday and Saturday.

The event has become one of the more anticipated weekends all season long in Central California. The Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Elk Grove Ford and Abreu Vineyards is eager to compete alongside the NARC 410s each night at the show. The ‘Classic’ begins this Friday at Tulare Thunderbowl Raceway, before finishing up at Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford on Saturday.

The PMC is organized by now retired racer Peter Murphy, who suffered injuries during a racing crash at the Antioch Speedway on July 20, 2013. The accident ultimately forced him to step out of the seat, having suffered a traumatic brain injury, ligament damage in his neck, shoulder and knees, along with a compressed T-3 vertebra.

The following year he arranged the inaugural Peter Murphy Classic and received rave reviews for it. This season we celebrate the eighth edition of the event and it’s shaping up to be one of the best yet.

“I really want this weekend to be a memorable one for all the fans and teams once again,” said Murphy, who now fills the role of Promoter at Keller Auto Speedway. “I still can’t thank everyone enough for all they did after my accident. It was so humbling to have support from people all over the world. This is a way for me to continue giving back and show how much I appreciate the sport we all love. We’re excited to have the Sprint Car Challenge Tour as part of the Peter Murphy Classic both nights with NARC.”

With two races complete for the Sprint Car Challenge Tour it’s Aromas racer Justin Sanders who sits atop the standings. Fremont’s Shane Golobic is only three markers back in second, while Roseville’s Sean Becker sits three digits out of the lead in third. Auburn’s Andy Forsberg and Modesto’s Tony Gomes round out the top-five. Both nights at the event will be co-sanctioned with the locally based Kings of Thunder Winged 360s.

The Peter Murphy Classic muffler rule will follow track protocols at both Thunderbowl Raceway and Keller Auto Speedway, which mirrors the NARC 410 rule. Adult grandstand tickets on Friday May 13th at Stone Thunderbowl Raceway cost $30, while bleacher tickets are $25. Kids 6-12 are $15 in the grandstands and $13 in the bleachers. Senior grandstand seats will be $28 and senior bleacher tickets are $23. Kids five and under are free. Tickets will be available at the gate.

Front gate opens at 4pm, with pit meeting scheduled for 5:15 and cars on track around 5:30. Adult tickets at Keller Auto Speedway on Saturday May 14th cost $25 while Juniors ages 7-17, Seniors 62 plus and Military cost $20. Kids six and under are free. Ticket can be purchased at https://www.myracepass.com/events/394395/tickets/ or at the gate.

Front gate opens at 4pm, with pit meeting scheduled for 4:30 and cars on track shortly after.

The Stone Chevrolet Buick GMC Thunderbowl Raceway is located at the Tulare County Fairgrounds on the corner of Bardsley and K Streets at 620 South K Street Tulare, California 93274. From the junction of SR 99 and SR 137, go west on SR 137. At South K go south one-half mile to the Fairgrounds.

The Keller Auto Speedway is a 3/8-mile clay oval and is located on the Kings County Fairgrounds in Hanford, California. The physical address is 801 S. 10th Ave. Hanford, Ca 93230.

The Sprint Car Challenge Tour would like to thank Elk Grove Ford, Abreu Vineyards, Hoosier Racing Tires, Flo Racing, Shop Kyle Larson, Pit Stop USA, Tiner-Hirst Enterprise, BR Motorsports, King Racing Products, A.R.T. Speed Equipment, Bianchi Farms, D&D Roofing, Garth Moore Insurance and Financial Services, Quick Time Energy and Mortgage and High Sierra Industries for their support this season.

LIGUORI BACK ON TRACK TO COMPETE IN AMERICAN SPEED NATIONALS

May 10, 2022 - With the 2nd annual American Speed U.S. Nationals just a little over three weeks away, it didn’t appear Joe Liguori would be participating in this year’s event until Monday afternoon. The Must See Racing Sprint Series presented by Engine Pro will be contesting its second edition of the American Speed U.S. Nationals at Kalamazoo Speedway May 27-28.

Liguori was involved in a hard crash on the final lap of the April 30 MSR event at South Boston Speedway. Liguori’s machine was destroyed while battling for second place coming to the checkered. The only good news, Liguori still managed to finish third despite a destroyed race car.

MSR did not tally points or award a series champion in 2021 due to the uncertainty of COVID-19, had the series crowned a champion, Liguori would have been the 2021 MSR champion. Entering 2022, Liguori was one of the favorites to win this year’s title chase.

Liguori confirmed on Monday afternoon that he, along with wife Lynsey, daughter Emilee, and Brad Ringer were hard at work getting a new Bernie Hallisky built car ready in time for the Memorial Day Weekend.

“I’ve been building a non-winged car” Liguori explained Monday afternoon. “We did plan to run the new car with a wing a few times. With the circumstances now, that is now our primary wing car. We’ll get the Hurricane fixed when we can. The “X” car will be making its debut at Kalamazoo”.
Its no secret Liguori would like to claim the 2022 MSR championship and his most recent thrash to get the new car finished in time for the American Speed U.S. Nationals is evidence.

”I was talking to Bernie Hallisky and we were bantering back and fourth as to which car to run. “I know we can win this championship. I just have a lot more fun running the wing cars. The non-wing cars are fun, but I have a lot more fun running the wing cars. They’re such fun cars to drive. We have a shot at winning this championship. Why don’t we keep chasing this. So that’s what we’re doing. We’re gonna be ready for Kalamazoo”.

Liguori took the time to explain the South Boston wreck in detail as he remembered it.”The motor was fading on longer runs. The last couple of laps I was just trying to make it to the end. I saw Jacob Dolinar up top of me a lap before. The way the track was you were committed on exit. I was lower than I normally was, and the car started pushing up the hill. Coming to the checkered I let it go because I figured if I could get it straight I’d beat him to the line because I thought I could horsepower him to the line.

It got to where I knew that wasn’t gonna happen. I rolled out of the gas, and it took off to him. I don’t know, I still feel like I’m a little inexperienced at some of that stuff. When your wide open like that everything happens so quick. When I made contact, it just ricocheted me down into the inside wall”.
With a renewed sense of urgency and a new car, Liguori also hinted that a new look might be in store. “Thanks to Indy Powder Coating, the car is gonna have a different look, but that’s all I’ll say” laughed Liguori.

Entries continue to plie for the 2nd annual American Speed U.S. Nationals as drivers from several states have already entered the May 27-28 two-day event. The festival of speed will also include an appearance of the Maxima Racing Oil’s Midwest Lights Series on Friday night as well has honoring our veterans all weekend long with several events planned.

Goldesberry scores first podium of 2022

Springfield, IL (May 9, 2022) – The Bumper to Bumper IRA sprint car series returned to Sycamore Speedway in Maple Park, IL for the first time in 35 years this past Saturday night. Jordan Goldesberry found speed in his Rockstar Energy Drink ride right away.

With 26 cars checked in, Goldesberry would qualify his Rockstar Energy Drink Maxim sixth quick. On a slick racing surface, Goldesberry would line up third in the third heat race. He would ride in third the entire race and lock himself into the dash redraw. Goldesberry would draw the #4 for the second dash. Lining up fourth, he would cross the finish line in third in the four lap dash.

“We were able to qualify good which made it a little easier to qualify for the dashes. Making the dash is so important to give yourself a shot at winning these races.” said Goldesberry.

Goldesberry would line up his Rockstar Energy Maxim outside the third row for the 30 lap feature. Goldesberry would get a good start and get into fourth within the first couple laps. Goldesberry would make a pass for third then set his sights on second place runner Zach Daum. Goldesberry would gain on Daum after several laps and was able to pull behind Daumgoing into turn 3 to make a slide job stick and take second place. There was a yellow with four laps to go but Goldesberry wouldn’t be able to make a run on race winner Scotty Thiel. Goldesberry would take the checkers in second place and put his Rockstar Energy Drink Maxim on the podium for the first time in 2022.

“The car was really good. We had a couple close calls but we were able to survive. It’s nice to get our first podium early in the season. Hopefully we can keep this Rockstar car up front!” said Goldesberry.

Jordan Goldesberry and his Rockstar Energy Drink team will be back in action this Saturday at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, IA.

Mallett Posts Fourth-Place Outing During ASCS Mid-South Region Event at Greenville Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - GREENVILLE, Miss. (May 10, 2022) - Jordon Mallett has improved his feature result during each of his four starts this season, highlighted by a fourth-place finish last Saturday at Greenville Speedway.

"We're rolling fine and I felt pretty good," he said. "It was a little different than we're used to at Greenville, where we've won races. We got the car a little better for the feature. If I would have made a few more changes differently we'd have been in the hunt."

Mallett advanced from fifth to fourth place in both a heat race and the main event on the tricky track.

"I was a little too snug on the wall to get through the holes," he said. "I had too much right rear in the car. The track was uncharacteristic. It was up against the wall, which we've won races up against the wall and right around the bottom and either hooked up or slick. With the weather they had earlier in the week it was uncharacteristically choppy against the wall. You had to keep the car loaded up and on the brakes to run the top. We were a little too snug to really get it to where it'd go. You had to enter really hard and against the wall to keep from getting slid."

Mallett battled inside the top five throughout the feature before posting the fourth-place result.

"It was still a top-five night," he said. "We showed up wanting to win like normal, but it wasn't in the cards. We didn't tear anything up so that's a positive. It's hard to be disappointed in a top five, but that's not where we want to be."

Mallett plans to join the USCS Series this Friday and Saturday at Southern Raceway in Milton, Fla.

"We've won several races down there and normally can run pretty good," he said. "It's one of our more successful places that's in the deeper south area."

They've been a great supporter of us and we're excited to welcome them back bigger and better than ever."

Williamson Records Eighth-Place Finish for Second Straight Top 10 at Knoxville Raceway

Inside Line Promotions - KNOXVILLE, Iowa (May 10, 2022) - Garet Williamson garnered his second straight top-10 result at Knoxville Raceway last Saturday.

The eighth-place run was the 11th top 10 of the season for Bryant Paver Motorsports, which kicked off the action in the 360ci winged sprint car division with a fifth-place performance in qualifying and a fourth-place showing in a heat race.

"We were really good all night," said Williamson, who started third in the A Main. "I think I just got into the bottom too hard one time and blew the packer off the left front shock. We struggled after that. I think the first half of the race we had a car to win. After that it entered the corners fine, but just wasn't in the track and I didn't have the drive anymore."

Williamson ran third early before fading to eighth after the handling went away on the race car.

"Having speed there compared to how we were last year is great," he said. "We've been consistently fast the two times we've been there this year. I think we'll get back a few times before August. We're excited about our speed there and we'll try some things to get that extra little bit."

With the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event canceled this weekend the team has changed plans to run a 410ci winged sprint car show on Friday at Jacksonville Speedway in Jacksonville, Ill., before tackling an ASCS Sooner Region and ASCS Warrior Region event at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo., on Saturday.

Williamson made the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series feature last year during his sprint car debut at Jacksonville Speedway.

"It'll be great to get back in the 410," he said. "I think we'll be really good. We got around Jacksonville good with the Outlaws. Hopefully we can put together a good night and get a solid finish as we gain more 410 experience."

He has a top-10 result during his last two races at Lucas Oil Speedway.

Michael’s Mercer Raceway ready to kick off its 71st season in 2022 with new clay and new outlook Saturday May 14th.
By Jim Balentine
(Mercer,Pa)
Edward Michaels..now in his 4th year of his family’s 2nd run of track ownership will provide the racers and the race fan with a whole new red clay racing surface, new lighting, new races, new broadcasting partner and a new promoter for an exciting 2022 season that begins this Saturday May 14th.
The biggest news of the new season is the addition of over 110 Tri axle loads of red clay put down on the race surface. This is the same clay that is used at many tracks around Ohio and western pa and should provide a wider, smoother and bitey racing surface.
Another new occurrence is the addition of new promoter Steve Cousins. Steve from Eldred, Pa has been a racer with the Racesaver 305 sprints for the past couple years and will now devote his time to Mercer working with the veteran crew and the drivers to make Mercer great again.
Another new idea for 2022 is the induction of online broadcasting with Dirt Track Digest TV. All races held at Mercer broadcasted live. This will help out the drivers get exposure for their sponsors as well as provide the world to see what racing at the historic facility is all about. More information coming soon.
Also there will be new track lighting scheduled for 2022 which will help illuminate the facility much better to give it that daylight racing image at night with no dark spots.
The bread and butter of Mercer since 1951, the big block Modifieds will return as the weekly headliner division and will be showcased 11 times.
The FASTRAK limited modifieds with the crate 602 motor will return for their 4th season. Car counts are steadily growing as many drivers have moved up to the class.
The Racesaver 305 sprints have been growing each year and again for 2022 many drivers have moved up from the mod lites and young guns and should help fill the field weekly. The “big Mav classic” honoring the Brandon Hawkins family will return in July 23rd paying $1500 to win.
The mini stocks will again race for the highest weekly payout of any track this season and with the elimination of the 6 cylinder cars should make things very interesting for 2022.
The 2022 season opener is scheduled to kick off this Saturday May 14th with the season opener for points featuring the big block modifieds, Racesaver 305 sprints, FASTRAK modifieds and the mini stocks. The junior sprints will also be in attendance.
Pits will open at 4
Grandstands at 5
Hot laps at 6:15
Racing at 7 pm

General Admission- $15
Seniors General Admission- $13
Kids (Age 13 and under) General Admission- Free

Paul Pokorski nets top-10 finish in Akright Auto Racing Team guest driving role

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) May 10, 2022 – While regular Akright Auto Racing Team driver Alex Pokorski was tending to his college obligations, 30-year veteran Paul Pokorski made the most of a fill-in opportunity behind the wheel of the No. 4 360 Sprint Car by charging to a top-10 A-main finish in the 2022 Plymouth Dirt Track Racing Akright Auto Midwest Sprint Car Association season opener at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis.

Pokorski, who was among 27 PDTR-MSA 360 Sprint Car drivers signed in to compete in the 2022 PDTR lid lifter, searched to find his comfort zone in the third 10-lap heat race, as he fell back from his fourth starting spot to finish seventh.

After lining up fourth in the 15-lap PDTR 360 Sprint Car B main, Pokorski worked around Chris Larson on the opening lap to advance to third. On lap 5, Bill Taylor dropped Pokorski to fourth. Pokorski used the outside groove to work his way back into third on lap 9.

The 2014 MSA Masters Series champion moved up to second in the running order when Preston Ruh dropped out of the race on lap 10. Two laps later, Larson powered past Pokorski, as the West Bend driver finished third to earn a spot in the 25-lap A main.

Pokorski rolled off 19th in the PDTR 360 Sprint Car headliner and worked primarily the high line around the multi-groove racing surface in the early going to move into 16th on lap 5. After the red flag appeared on lap 7 for a flip involving Will Gerrits, Pokorski moved up to 15th on the restart.

Another red flag was displayed on lap 17 when Ben Schmidt and Brandon McMullen collided in turn three while racing for the lead. Pokorski restarted 12th and advanced to 10th following a yellow flag on lap 18 for Justin Miller’s spin.

Pokorski held strong over the final seven laps to secure a 10th-place finish in a race won by Travis Arenz.

“This car feels different then our own car, so there was a little bit of a learning curve,” Pokorski said. “We also had a couple of little mechanical issues early on that we needed to sort through. All in all, we kept going in the right direction and by feature time, the car was pretty decent. However, the driver was a little rusty!

“I think we did a decent job of tuning it up and getting it going in the right direction for Alex to take over this weekend,” he said.

Alex Pokorski will make his debut in the seat of the No. 4 Akright Auto Racing Team car for a doubleheader weekend of Akright Auto Midwest Sprint Car Association action beginning Saturday, May 14 at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. and wrapping up on Sunday, May 15 at Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wis.

Saturday, May 14 is police, fire and emergency medical services night at The Plymouth Dirt Track with all police officers, firefighters and emergency medical services personnel gaining free admission with valid identification.

Spectator gates open at 3:30 p.m. with racing scheduled to begin at 5 p.m. at The Plymouth Dirt Track on Saturday, May 14.

On Sunday, May 15, spectator gates open at 4 p.m. with on-track action scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. at Angell Park Speedway on Sunday, May 15.

FIRST "SUPER SERIES" EVENT OF 2022 FOR "410" SPRINTS SATURDAY AT SHARON; RUSH SPRINTS, RUSH SPORTSMAN MODS & ECONO MODS ALSO IN ACTION

May 10, 2022

By Mike Leone


(Hartford, OH)…After saturated grounds forced the second cancellation in three weeks, Sharon Speedway will look to resume racing action this Saturday night (May 14) with the first "Super Series" event of the 93rd anniversary season. On the card will be the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply "410" Sprint Cars, Terry Bowser Excavating RUSH Sprint Cars, HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds, and the Whelen Econo Mods. It's Cortland Mower Sales Night. Race time is 7 p.m.

Cap Henry opened the season on April 30 winning the $6,500 All Star show for his second career Sharon win. Saturday will be the first non-sanctioned "410" Sprint Car show of 2022. While $3,000 to-win, $250 to-start has again been posted as in years past, all of this year's "Super Series" events have been increased $2,400 with positions 2-20 seeing a raise! See complete payoff below.

In addition, all competing regional drivers will be eligible the Mobile Bail Bonds "Bounty Hunter" Bonus on May 21. If one of those racers can defeat the World of Outlaws, the driver will earn a $1,000 bonus; if not, the highest finishing eligible driver will receive a $150 bonus. The posted bonuses will continue throughout 2022 at the All Stars and World of Outlaws events.

The 2021 season started off with nine different winners in the first nine "410" Sprint Car races before Carl Bowser became the first repeat winner with the first two victories of his Sharon career. Bowser's teammate, George Hobaugh, was one of the 2021 winners and led the first 28 laps of the April 30 feature in search of his first career All Star win before fading to fifth at the finish. Like Bowser, Hobaugh also owns two career Sharon victories. Dave Blaney's 34 "410" victories at Sharon are the most amongst active racers.

The Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Sprint Car Series has raced once this year on the circuit with Blaze Myers winning the opener at Tyler County Speedway on April 23 for his second career win. The RUSH Sprints will battle for a $20,000 Weekly Series Championship presented by Equipment Rental Options with $5,000 going to the 2022 champion.

For the second straight year, Terry Bowser Excavating is presenting all of the RUSH Sprint Car events at Sharon in 2022. There have been 17 RUSH Sprint Car events completed all-time at Sharon with nine different winners. Three-time Series Champion, Chad Ruhlman, leads the way with seven victories. Jarod Larson and Nolan Groves are two-time winners, while Andy Feil, Brian Ruhlman, Brian Woodhall, Jeremy Weaver, Rod George, and Steve Pedley each have one feature win to their credit.

The HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds will be making their Sharon season debut on Saturday night. This year will mark the ninth year of existence for the division, which has averaged over a full field of cars annually at Sharon. If there are 24 or more cars, the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds will compete for $550 to-win, $85 to-start in 2022.

Hovis Auto & Truck Supply presents the RUSH Sportsman Modified Weekly Series Championship that pays the top 20 RUSH member drivers for their best 12 races across the region with $3,500 going to the champion. Saturday's show kicks off year three of the "Route 7 Rumble" Series Championship presented by Wedge Motorsports. That Series takes into account all races run between Sharon and Raceway 7 as the top eight drivers will share in the $2,500 point fund with $1,000 going to the champion.

The Whelen Econo Mods round out the four-division show on Saturday night. The Econo Mods joined the All Star Sprints on April 30, and it was Jeremy Double earning his 17th career win. Double will look to go two-for-two on Saturday and inch closer to Brandon Blackshear's all-time leading total of 21 wins in the division. If there are 24 or more cars, the Econo Mods will compete for $450 to-win, $80 to-start in 2022.

Summit Racing Equipment will present the hard charger award on Saturday night to the "410" Sprint Car division. The driver that passes the most cars in the feature will receive a $100 Summit gift card. In the event of a tie, the tiebreaker will be the driver that finished highest in the feature.

"410" Sprint Car Payoff: 1. $3,000 2. $1,300 3. $1,000 4. $750 5. $650 6. $550 7. $500 8. $450 9. $425 10. $400 11-13. $375 14-16. $350 17-20. $300 21-24. $250. Tow/Non-Qualifiers $100.

Blake Carrick Nets Another Top-10

PETERSEN MEDIA: Blake Carrick started his Saturday night off really strong, but unfortunately couldn’t seem to get going in the 25-lap feature event. Though he would slip back over the course of the race, Carrick would pocket his eighth Top-10 of the season.

“We had a really good start to the night, but we struggled in the feature, and I really don’t know why we were so off,” Blake Carrick said.

With 35-cars on hand for Mother’s Day Madness at Placerville Speedway, Carrick got his night started off by timing the CVC/Cemex/Interstate Oil backed No. 38B machine in 11th fastest in qualifying time trials.

Putting his machine on the pole of his heat race, the Lincoln, CA youngster would need to pick up the win to garner himself a spot in the nightly redraw.

Getting the jump over Michael Ing, Carrick would lead all eighth laps as he picked up the win convincingly. Locking into the feature and the redraw, the three-pill placed him in the second row of the 25-lap feature behind eventual race winner, Justin Sanders.

When the feature came to life, Carrick would find himself back in fourth, and the first restart of the night would then see him fall back fifth. Slipping back to seventh on another restart on lap eight, Carrick would continue to battle inside the Top-10.

Keeping his machine in the Top-10, Carrick would cap his night off with a ninth-place finish.

“I have to thank my guys for all of their hard work,” Carrick said. “We had a good night going, so hopefully we can figure some things our as we get ready for two nights this weekend in Hanford and Tulare.”

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

ON TAP: Carrick will be back in action this Friday and Saturday in Tulare, CA and Hanford, CA.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-12, Wins-0, Top 5’s-3, Top 10’s-8

Kaleb Montgomery 15th After Being Collected in Early Race Tangle

PETERSEN MEDIA- An early race incident ultimately dictated Kaleb Montgomery’s feature event result on Saturday night at Placerville Speedway. Finding himself caught up in a lap five incident, Montgomery would recover to finish 15th with the F&F Racing team.

“I made a couple mistakes in time trials, and we ended up timing in seventh fastest,” Montgomery said. “Despite our night starting off how we hoped, we ran really good in our heat race and locked into the 11th starting position in the feature event.”

After timing the Bushey Financial Services/C&H Motor Parts/Lucas Oil backed No. x1 entry in seventh fastest in qualifying, the Templeton, CA driver would line up in the second row of the third heat race.

Laying down a stout performance in his heat, Montgomery would finish third and would lock himself into the 11th starting position for the 25-lap feature event.

When the race went green, Montgomery continued to run with that same poise he showed in his heat race as he jumped into 10th, and then quickly into ninth as he showcased a very strong Alan Bradway prepared mount.

Just as quickly as he got into ninth, trouble would ensue and leave Montgomery collected and stalled out on the track. Forced to the tail end of the field, Montgomery would restart in the 18th position.

Back in 18th, Montgomery would be mired in thick traffic and would not be able to get going and work his way back through the field. Picking up a couple of positions from the back of the pack, Montgomery brought his Friends and Family Racing machine home 15th.

“It was not the result this team wanted, but sometimes you just get put in a position with nowhere to go,” Montgomery said. “Big thanks to my guys for giving me a really good car, and putting us in position to do well after a tough qualifying effort.”

F&F Racing would like to thank Bushey Financial Services, C&H Motor Parts, Lucas Oil, Geico Local Office, Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes, Pacific Highway Rentals, PitStopUSA, FVP, CRV Carbon Solutions, American River Overhead Door, All Pro Heads, Engler, and Don Ott Racing Engines for their support.

Justin Sanders and Dale Miller Motorsports Win Again at Placerville Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA- Justin Sanders and Dale Miller Motorsports are making the most of their limited schedule together in 2022. In what was just the team’s second start of the season together on Saturday night, Sanders racked his second feature event win in the potent No. 4SA entry as he was strong on the ¼ mile bullring on Saturday.

“I didn’t get off to the best start in the feature event, and kind of got into an early chess match with Landon Brooks,” Justin Sanders said. “Able to get into the lead, our car felt really good in the slick, probably the best we have ever had it, and it let us get through traffic and get another win.”

Saturday’s Mother Day Madness event saw Sanders time the Thompson’s Buick-GMC/Thompson’s Jeep-Ram/Dale Miller Septic backed No. 4SA in fourth fastest, which would be vital to have a chance at the redraw.

Lining up second in his heat race on a very fast Placerville Speedway surface, Sanders would get a great jump as he got by CJ Humphries to take second. Chasing after Chase Johnson for the top spot, Sanders would settle into his second position as his qualifying effort would put him in the redraw by simply transferring.

Moving into the redraw, Lady Luck would be on the Aromas, CA drivers’ side as the lone pill left in the bag would be the ‘one’ which put him on the front row of the feature event as he looked for his third win of the season at the famed bullring.

Leading the field to green alongside Landon Brooks, Sanders would jump to the bottom as Brooks went high and put Sanders in the second position. Stalking Brooks for the first three laps, Sanders would use a lap four restart to pounce on the youngster as he jumped into the race lead.

Setting a strong pace out front, Sanders was very good in traffic though would feel pressure from Tanner Carrick on a couple of occasions late in the race.

Able to fend off Carrick’s advances, Sanders would open his lead back up as he cruised to the win by nearly a second over second running Carrick.

“Despite only running two races together so far this year, I really have to thank Dale and Tara Miller for a great car and working so hard with me,” Sanders said. “We may not have a ton of races together, but were going to do our best to run well and win when we do team up.”

The Dale Miller Motorsports team would like to thank Thompson’s Buick-GMC, Thompson’s Jeep-Ram, Dale Miller Septic, Inc., North County Plastering, 24 Hour Road Side Service, Anrak Corporation, Smith Titanium, Absolute Auto Glass, Frank’s Body Shop, Champion Brands Racing Oil, Rider Racing Engines, Walker Performance Filtration, Factory Kahne Shocks, Vortex Wings, TJ Forged Wheels, FK Rod Ends, Triple X Race Co., King Racing Products, and A.R.T. Speed Equipment for their support.

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

ON TAP: The next event for Dale Miller Motorsports and Justin Sanders will be a double header with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour this weekend as they invade Tulare, CA on Friday and Hanford, CA on Saturday,

 

 

Tanner Carrick Runs Second at Placerville Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA: Despite battling late race brake issues, Tanner Carrick was still able to navigate his Carrick Motorsports entry to a second-place finish, despite being disappointed he was able to battle for a win late in the race.

“We had a really good car, and early in the race I was able to go wherever I needed to,” Tanner Carrick said. “We had a late yellow and my foot went to the floor when I hit the brake pedal and I looked down and had brake fluid everywhere. It was really tough to run the top, and when I went to the bottom, I basically overdrove the corner carrying too much speed, so overall I am happy we hung on to finish second.”

With 35 cars checked into Placerville Speedway on Saturday night for weekly points action, Carrick timed the CVC/Cemex/Interstate Oil backed No. 83T machine in second fastest in qualifying time trials.

Lining up fourth in his heat race, the Lincoln, CA would get a good start as he was able to pick up a couple of positions as he raced by Kyle Hirst and Jayson Bright to take over second.

Finishing second, Carrick was safely in the feature event and also locked himself into the redraw by way of his qualifying effort. Pulling the ‘five’, Carrick would line up in the third row to kick off the 25-lap Mother’s Day Madness feature event.

Slipping back to sixth when the green flag was displayed, Carrick would use an early restart to take the fifth position before moving into fourth.

Another restart saw the Lincoln, CA driver make a two-for-one in turns three and four to move into second as he began his pursuit of Justin Sanders on by lap eight.

Chasing after Sanders, Carrick would close in on the leader as they raced in traffic until a caution flag waived just after the race’s halfway point. Under the stoppage of the race, Carrick would experience a brake issue that would hinder him in the closing stages of the race.

Using his wing to help him slow down, things would be tough on Carrick as he would never be able to seriously challenge Sanders for the top spot. Wrestling his machine around the bullring in the race’s final stages, Carrick capped his night off with a second-place finish.



“It was disappointing, but it wasn’t anybody’s fault,” Carrick said. “Just a little bad luck. We have a really good car, and if we can shake some of these gremlins we will be even better. Thanks to all of these guys for continuing to work hard for this race team.”

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

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts: 21, Wins: 3, Top 5’s: 9, Top 10’s: 14

Tony Gomes Charges to Eighth with C&M Motorsports

PETERSEN MEDIA- Tony Gomes was quick to point out that it was his fault that his night with C&M Motorsports got off to a tough start. Overcoming a tough qualifying effort, Gomes would have his elbows up in the feature as he charged to an eighth-place finish at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night.

“The driver turned in two pretty bad qualifying laps that put us in a deep hole,” Gomes said. “Cody and the guys gave me a really good car that was racy in our heat, and I was able to lock into the feature, and we had a really good car in the ‘A’ and I was able to move forward again.”

Timing the Legacy Specialties Inc./Lund Construction/Anrak Corp. backed No. 7c in 24th fastest in time trials, the Hollister, CA driver would line up in the third row of his heat race.

A good start saw Gomes quickly put himself in a transfer position as he secured the fourth position on the opening lap. Settling in, Gomes would hang on to the transfer spot as he would finish fourth and move onto the ‘A’ where he took the green flag from the 18th starting spot.

Getting off to a quick start, Gomes would quickly work his way up to 13th before he was involved in a lap five stoppage in turns one and two. After taking a quick trip to the work area, Gomes return to the track where he would try again but this time from 17th.

Getting off to another quick restart, Gomes would race into the Top-10 by the 13th lap. Slipping back to 11th briefly, Gomes would come alive in the final laps as he was able to power his way into ninth before working into eighth with five laps left in the race.

Hanging on to eighth, Gomes would cap his night off with a Top-10 finish.

“Our car was really good in the feature event, and it is a testament Cody, Tom, and John for all of their hard work,” Gomes said. “I also want to thank Cody and Mandi for another opportunity to drive for them.”

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

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

ST. HELENA, Calif. (May 9, 2022) – St. Helena, California’s Rico Abreu and Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing have been busy, to say the least, over the last few weeks, following the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series across much of the Midwest in visits to Missouri, Indiana, and Tennessee, with an unsanctioned visit to Iowa in the process. Despite the intense travel and long hours, Abreu’s focus has not shifted, highlighting his recent stretch with a fourth-place performance in Bristol Motor Speedway’s $25,000-to-win Bristol Bash finale on Saturday, April 30.

Although stout in his appearance at Bristol, Abreu, ace of the Abreu Vineyards, Rowdy Energy, Curb Records, Stadelhofer Construction, Wiser Agency, Tony Toste Construction, Lucas Oil Products, ShopRico.com, Salty’s BBQ, No. 24 sprint car, was just as impressive during a World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series visit to the highbanks of Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Missouri, on Saturday, April 16, finishing sixth in the evening’s main event after starting seventh on the grid.

The Pevely top-ten did not come without perseverance, as Abreu was forced to battle back after contact with a fellow competitor halted all momentum. Abreu faded to ninth before recovering to sixth, actually applying pressure for fourth and fifth with ten to go.

Other highlights include finishing 14th – against a 43-car field – during a weekly program at the famed Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday, May 7. Forced to do things the hard way, Abreu earned his Knoxville feature starting position by way of B-Main, ultimately translating a 23rd starting spot into a 14th-place finish; Carson Macedo was the main event winner.

“I’m super proud of this team right now. Our schedule isn’t easy, but the guys hang tough and continue to perform to the best of their ability,” Rico Abreu said. “I’m excited to get this Rowdy Energy car back to Central Pennsylvania. The fans in Posse Country are unbelievable and I’m excited to have the chance to be reunited with everyone.”

ON DECK:
Rico Abreu and Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing will continue their 2022 campaign with a trip to Central Pennsylvania, joining the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series and infamous Pennsylvania Posse during the invasion of Lincoln Speedway on May 11, and Williams Grove Speedway on May 13-14. Lincoln Speedway’s Gettysburg Clash will award a $10,000 payday, with Williams Grove’s annual Morgan Cup awarding $10,000 and $12,000, respectively. A $5,000 Morgan Cup bonus will also be awarded on Saturday.

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (May 9, 2022) – The “Big Wheel” Scotty Thiel and Sheboygan, Wisconsin’s Team 73 have been basically unstoppable in IRA Outlaw Sprint Series competition thus far in 2022, earning their second Series victory in as many tries during a visit to Sycamore Speedway in Maple Park, Illinois, on Saturday, May 7. Impressive enough, Thiel’s victory occurred in wire-to-wire fashion, also for the second time in as many tries.

The IRA victory earned Thiel a $3,000 payday. There were 26 cars on hand for the sprint car return to Sycamore.

“That was fun,” Thiel said, who is currently on top of the IRA Outlaw Sprint Series standings with two wins in two starts. “I can’t say enough about this team. We click well together and we’re able to make great decisions, and it shows. We still have some things we need to work on or improve on, but overall, I’m happy with how we are operating and I’m excited to see what we can do this weekend.”

ON DECK: Potentially, the “Big Wheel” Scotty Thiel and Team 73 will continue their 2022 campaign with an All Star Circuit of Champions tripleheader on Friday through Sunday, May 13-15.

Giles growing comfortable with TKS Motorsports

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

MITCHELLVILLE, Iowa (May 9, 2022) – Despite their 2022 campaign still in the beginning phases, only making two feature starts since joining efforts, Grimes, Iowa’s Ryan Giles and Mitchellville, Iowa’s TKS Motorsports are continuing to make progress, slowly building a comfort level that will prove beneficial when the team hits some of sprint car racing’s premier events in the coming months.

Most recently, Giles, ace of the Albaugh LLC, Iowa Barnstormers, deWit Construction, No. 2KS sprint car, made his return to the famed Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday, May 7, greeted by not only the facility’s weekly warriors, but also a slew of World of Outlaws and All Star Circuit of Champions travelers, all taking advantage of great weather conditions after much of the Mid-Atlantic fell victim to Mother Nature. In all, 43 competitors made the journey to Knoxville, each seeking valuable lap time.

Although TKS Motorsports was forced to battle on an Outlaw-level playing field, they persevered, ultimately qualifying for the evening’s main event before being scored 22nd. Giles kicked-off the program with the 12th-fastest qualifying time in his respective group, driving on to finish third in his respective heat race.

“We’re doing everything we can to make Ryan more and more comfortable in the car and I think that’s beginning to show,” Troy Renfro explained, owner of the TKS Motorsports No. 2KS. “Hats off to this entire team. We’re still learning a lot about each other, but we have the knowledge and the speed to do something special this season. It all starts with lap time and hard work.”

ON DECK: Ryan Giles and TKS Motorsports will continue their 2022 campaign with another round of action at the famed Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday, May 14: Hy-Vee Night.

Brian Brown sixth against elite turnout at Knoxville Raceway

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. (May 9, 2022) – Five-time Knoxville Raceway track champion, Brian Brown was forced to battle the best in the business on Saturday night at the famed Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, facing-off against a stout contingent of local, regional, and national talent that included All Star and World of Outlaws competitors. Gathered for a Knoxville Raceway weekly program (taking advantage of great weather conditions after much of the Mid-Atlantic was stopped by Mother Nature) the field reached 43 competitors, all aiming to score valuable lap time before the upcoming World of Outlaws invasion in mid-June, as well as the coveted Knoxville Nationals in August.

Although Brown and Brian Brown Racing were unable to top the field, their performance was impressive, scoring another top-ten at the Sprint Car Capital of the World in the form of a sixth-place outcome after starting two positions back. “Blackjack” kicked-off the program with the fastest qualifying time in his respective group, as well as the fastest time overall. The Grain Valley, Missouri, native is now second in the Knoxville Raceway championship standings, trailing Justin Henderson by less than 40 markers.

“Overall, it was a great night for our team. Danny, may Dad, and Justin all did a great job and I’m proud of their efforts,” Brian Brown said, driver of the Brian Brown Racing, Casey’s, FVP, Andy’s Frozen Custard, Impact Signs Awnings and Wraps, Rowdy Energy, Ditzfeld transfer, Champion Brands, MC Power, Weld Wheels, Housby, Maxim Chassis, J.D. Welding & Machine, Waldinger, Smiley’s Racing Products, Wolfe Eye Clinic, Mid Mo Equipment, Bell Helmets, No. 21 sprint car. “We were fast right out of the gate and that helped us get our night activated right, especially against a 43-car field. I think I made a few mistakes that ultimately kept us from having a better night, but we’ll take this sixth-place run and move on.”

ON DECK: Tentatively, Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing will continue their 2022 campaign with another round of action at the famed Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday, May 14: Hy-Vee Night.

Kyle Hirst guides the Bates-Hamilton Racing entry to 7th at Placerville Speedway

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA…With Tim Kaeding preparing for a race at Husets Speedway in South Dakota, three-time Sprint Car Challenge Tour champion Kyle Hirst occupied the seat of the Bates-Hamilton Racing No. 42x this past Saturday in Placerville.

The 34-year-old from Butte Valley began the “Mother’s Day Madness” event by qualifying sixth overall, before finishing fourth in his heat race.

Hirst then started from the outside of the fifth row in the 25-lap feature and hustled the Teichert Construction/ VinylTech PVC Pipe/ Clow Valve/ BenefitRFP Sprint Car to a seventh-place finish at the checkered flag.

“Originally it was going to be an off weekend for us, with Tim set to run the Huset’s opener for Dave Lunstra in South Dakota. We decided to have Kyle come run the car at Placerville on Saturday,” commented BHR co-owner Roger Hamilton. “Josh and I really appreciated that Kyle was able to come and help us out, he gave Josh great feedback that will benefit us moving forward. We’ll be back at it with TK this Friday and Saturday at the Peter Murphy Classic.”

As noted, San Jose’s Tim Kaeding returns to the Bates-Hamilton Racing mount for the eighth annual “Peter Murphy Classic” with the NARC Fujitsu 410 Sprint Cars this Friday and Saturday May 13th and 14th. The always anticipated event begins at Tulare Thunderbowl Raceway, before moving over to Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford to finish things off.

Kaeding’s prowess at Thunderbowl Raceway has been well documented over the years. In addition to wrapping up a pair of Trophy Cup titles at the track, he’s also scooped up four World of Outlaws victories in Tulare. Last year saw TK and the BHR 42X team bring home a sixth-place finish at the Murphy.

Likewise, he has also experienced immense success at Keller Auto Speedway, where the event wraps up for the initial time this weekend. Kaeding has raced to several big wins at the Kings County Fairgrounds track over the years, including a World of Outlaws triumph in 2003.

This past Sunday saw ‘TK’ move forward to earn an eighth-place finish at Husets Speedway in Brandon, South Dakota.

Tickets for the Peter Murphy Classic can be purchased at the gate each night. FloRacing will also be providing live flag-to-flag coverage of the show.

Bates-Hamilton Racing would like to thank Teichert Construction, VinylTech PVC Pipe, Clow Valve, BenefitRFP, Dan Ewart Sales, B Scadden Design, Advanced Drainage Systems, Custom Pipe and Fabrication, Tigre, North Bay Waterworks, SIP, Star Pipe Products, Kaeding Performance, Kistler Engines, Maxim Chassis, Bell Helmets, K1 Race Gear, Warehouse Paint, Arbo Tech, Performance Powder Coating, Sellers Race Wings, Rod Tiner Racing, ART Enterprises, Tiner-Hirst Enterprise and Vanlare Steering Repair for their support this season.

Hagar Earns Fifth Victory of Season During ASCS Mid-South Region Race at Greenville Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - GREENVILLE, Miss. (May 9, 2022) - Derek Hagar is off to the best start to a season since 2014.

Hagar captured his fifth feature triumph during his eighth winged sprint car race of 2022 last Saturday at Greenville Speedway, which hosted an ASCS Mid-South Region event.

"We have the team back and it's starting to shape up like 2014 and 2016 when we won all of those races," he said in reference to career-best seasons that each yielded 16 triumphs. "I don't see why we can't keep doing it."

Hagar advanced from fourth to second place during a heat race on Saturday when he made his first appearance at the track since May 2019.

"We haven't been there the last couple of years and we didn't have the fastest race car," he said. "We got to second and that put us in the top four in the feature redraw. We drew the No. 3 to start third in the 25-lap feature.

"The track was pretty gnarly. It was slick for the most part, but it was really flat on the bottom until it got to the top and then it was like Daytona banking. You had to get up there and man up and run against the fence. You had to try to stay out of the holes where it wouldn't bounce you into the wall."

Hagar quickly advanced into the runner-up position before taking the lead near the midpoint of the race.

"Tim Crawley was amazing," he said. "He probably put half a track on me and really had a good car. He got caught up with a lapped car and it knocked the front end out of his car. We inherited the lead and held on for about the last 12 laps. It was treacherous to be up there. You had to burn the brakes off it to bound the car up so if it got to bouncing you could still control it."

Hagar's next race is this Saturday at Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark. A win would match the best start to a season in winged sprint cars with six triumphs in the first nine races, which he accomplished eight years ago.

QUICK RESULTS -

May 7 - Greenville Speedway in Greenville, Miss. - Heat race: 2 (4); Feature: 1 (3).

SEASON STATS -

9 races, 5 wins, 6 top fives, 7 top 10s, 7 top 15s, 8 top 20s

Amantea Eyeing Improvement at Grandview Speedway With USAC East Coast Sprint Cars

Inside Line Promotions - Mt. POCONO, Pa. (May 9, 2022) - Joey Amantea is eager to return to Grandview Speedway this Saturday with a car capable of contending during the Rapid Tire USAC East Coast Sprint Cars Series event.

Amantea has invaded the dirt oval in Bechtelsville, Pa., twice during his career. He ended in a B Main during a winged sprint car event in 2020 before advancing from 21st to 12th during a USAC East Coast Sprint Cars Series race in May 2021.

"The first time in winged it didn't go well," he said. "The second time we were in wingless and it also didn't go as well as we wanted. It was super slick and hard to pass. I couldn't see through the corners. But we're running better this year so maybe it'll be different."

Amantea ranks fourth in the USAC East Coast Sprint Cars Series championship standings after earning four top fives and six top 10s in the first seven races of the season.

"Watching how we've been running with the fast guys compared to last year I think we'll do better," he said. "It'll be a matter of track position."

Last weekend's scheduled season opener in a micro sprint was postponed for Amantea, who is still seeking his first opportunity to make some laps in his newly build micro sprint.

Kaleb Johnson Rallies in Features at Knoxville Raceway and Huset's Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (May 9, 2022) - Perseverance was the key word to describe last weekend for Kaleb Johnson.

Johnson qualified eighth quickest and charged from fourth to win a heat race on Saturday at Knoxville Raceway. The feature inversion lined him up on the inside of the third row for the 360ci winged sprint car A Main at the half-mile oval in Knoxville, Iowa.

"I was passing for third and got too anxious and drove it in too hard into turn one," he said. "I barely missed the bottom with my left rear and it snapped free on me. I spun out. I was pretty upset with myself, but it's one of those deals where you live and learn. We had a really good car. We made some changes in the right direction and I felt like if I had stayed patient I could have potentially had something for the leaders. It's easy to say that now, but our speed is there. If we can put it all together we'll be able to contend."

Johnson rebounded from the spin approximately a third of the way through the main event by rallying from the back of the field to a 13th -place result.

"The cushion got pretty treacherous with a thick curb," he said. "A lot of people were on the bottom so I used the top to my advantage to gain as many positions as I could."

The team ventured to Huset's Speedway on Sunday for the Cressman Sanitation Shootout.

"It came out of gear in hot laps," he said. "We fixed that and went out for qualifying. It was blowing oil like crazy. At first we were going to be done for the night. I was thinking that if we're going to race for points we needed to find a way to race. We had our other 410 engine in another car. We sent guys to our shop to pull it while me and another guy pulled the motor at the track. Luckily there was no B Main so we were able to tag the back of the feature."

The team changed engines in time for Johnson to line up 26th in the 25-lap A Main.

"We really didn't know what to do setup-wise," he said. "We had made two laps all night, but they weren't at full speed either. It was a guessing game on setup. I knew I'd be in dirty air the whole time and I'd get lapped early. When you start 26th with a field like that they'll catch you in a hurry. I had some restarts where I could use the middle to my advantage and luckily we were able to get up to 14th.

"The cool part to me was how hard the four guys in the pits worked to get us out there. They knew how important it was for us to race the feature and make as many points as we could."

Johnson's run from 26th to 14th earned the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars.

The team plans to return to Knoxville Raceway this Saturday and Huset's Speedway on Sunday.

Dominic Scelzi Focusing on Continued Success at Peter Murphy Classic This Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - FRESNO, Calif. (May 9, 2022) - The Peter Murphy Classic has always been a special event for Dominic Scelzi.

"Peter is a great guy who has meant a lot to me and my racing career," he said. "We always look forward to racing the Peter Murphy Classic and last year we were able to accomplish something I couldn't even dream about."

Scelzi swept the event, winning both the King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series and Sprint Car Challenge Tour feature each night during the doubleheader. He'll aim for similar success this Friday at Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, Calif., and Saturday at Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, Calif.

"Last year was very special and everything would have to align perfectly to be able to win multiple features let alone sweep all four races this weekend," he said. "I've enjoyed a lot of success in Tulare and Hanford so we'll go race by race and hopefully be competitive each time we hit the track."

Scelzi is coming off his 50th career feature triumph and heads to a pair of tracks where he's no stranger to Victory Lane. He earned a half-dozen victories at each oval last year.

Additionally, Scelzi enters this weekend leading the King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series championship standings after producing podiums during each of the first two races this season.

Flowdynamics Racing

(Ontario, CA, May 6, 2022) It was an up and down night for the Flowdynamics Sprint Car team on April 30th when the USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series returned to Perris Auto Speedway. The upside was Logan Williams on the racetrack and battling all night long. The downside was Matt McCarthy having a collapsed fuel line that prevented him from competing the entire night.
 

McCarthy’s issue reared its ugly head on the first lap of hot laps, and he quickly headed back to the pit area where the crew poured over the car. They sent the beautiful #28M back onto the track when it was time to qualify, but the issue persisted.

While the crew tried to solve McCarthy’s problems, Williams took the black #5W onto the track for his two laps during time trials. The Yorba Linda, California racer ended up 12th fastest when he toured the half-mile in 17.912.

Both Flowdynamics drivers were slated to do battle in the third heat. Williams was coming from the inside of row two. McCarthy was slated to start at the back due to not getting a qualifying time. Despite the crew going over the car with a fine-tooth comb and changing everything they could think of, the car would not fire again, and McCarthy had to be pushed back into the pits and watch as Williams raced to a fourth-place finish.

All that was left for McCarthy was a shot at the main event. As had been the case all evening long, attempts to start the Riverside, Californian’s #28M proved to be futile and he was done for the night without turning a competitive lap.

Flying the flag by himself for the Flowdynamics team, Williams was outside the sixth row for the start of the 30-lap affair. He inched his way forward and by the end of the 13th circuit, he had moved ahead to ninth. Throughout the 30-lapper he was involved in a mid-pack battle royal with several other drivers. In the end, the young star crossed the line 11th.

Williams remains sixth in USAC/CRA points heading into the May 14th race at the Bakersfield Speedway. He is only 16-points out of fifth. Despite his night of issues, McCarthy remained in the top 10 in points and will be ninth when the team gets to Bakersfield.

McCarthy and Williams would like to thank the following sponsors for making the 2021 season possible. Flowdynamics Inc., JFK Design Build, Cal Therm Mechanical Insulators, CRC Component Repair Co., Encore Gas and Supply, Drink-Pac, and Benic Enterprises. If you or your company would like to come on board and join up with one of the fastest rising sprint car teams west of the Mississippi, please contact John McCarthy at 909 930-5522 or mailto:john@flodyinc.com

SIMPSON RACE PRODUCTS TO SUPPORT LITTLE 500 HALL ONCE AGAIN IN 2022

May 7, 2022 – The Little 500 Hall of Fame today announced that Simpson Race Products will continue their partnership with the non-profit organization once again in 2022. It will be the fourth consecutive season that Simpson will continue as the helmet sponsor.

The Little 500 Hall of Fame in a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the history of the Little 500 sprint car race as well as helping promote current and future events. The Little 500 Hall of Fame annually inducts three individuals each year during a formal induction ceremony at the track the day of the race. The persons annually inducted include drivers, mechanics, owners, race officials, and other individuals who have made a significant contribution to the race.

“Recognizing these individuals each year is very important to what the Little 500 Hall of Fame does” explains Little 500 Hall of Fame president David Sink. “We recognize the new inductees during our induction ceremony each year and present them a very nice plaque commemorating this very special occasion. Unfortunately, there is a significant cost to hold the ceremony and present these nice awards. Sponsorship has dried up lately and we hold an autographed helmet raffle to try to defray the costs. Lately this has been our only fundraiser as times have been difficult.

Simpson Race Products has continued to provide the Little 500 Hall of Fame with two helmets annually. We get them both autographed. We raffle one off and hold onto the other for a permanent display we one day hope to have. This will be the fourth consecutive season Simpson has helped us. We have worked with Desire Burkle each of the past four seasons. She has been eager to help us each year. That gives me a sense of pride knowing that Desire and Simpson understand what we are trying to accomplish and continue to give us their support” concluded Sink.

This year’s Little 500 Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will take place at Anderson Speedway May 28, 2022, the day of the race. Tickets are still available by calling the track (765) 642-0206 or the Little 500 Hall of Fame (765) 278-8231. Please consider helping the Little 500 Hall of Fame by purchasing a Induction Ceremony ticket or making a contribution to: The Little 500 Hall of Fame, 5027 Pearl St., Anderson, Indiana 46013.

BRODY ROA FINISHES SIXTH IN USAC/CRA RACE AT PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY

(Cypress, CA, May 6, 2022) Brody Roa made his first 410 wingless sprint car start in more than three months when the USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series visited Perris Auto Speedway for the “Sokola Shootout” last Saturday night. The veteran driver came home sixth in the 30-lap event after starting ninth.

Saturday’s race was only Roa’s second at Perris since last November. The other one was on March 26th when he donned a wing to compete with the World of Outlaws.

After qualifying ninth in the 24-car field with a lap of 16.932, Roa started fourth and proceeded to score a convincing victory in his 10-lap heat. It was his second series heat race win in four races thus far in 2022.

“I am a little out of breath, I forgot how hard the non-wing stuff is to drive,” Roa joked when interviewed in front of the crowd after his heat race victory early in the night. “We made a couple of changes before the heat race. I think the wing stuff we have been doing the last couple of months is paying off a little bit. It has kind of slowed the non-wing stuff down and got our minds thinking in a different way. Hopefully, we can do that again (win) in the feature.”

For the main event on the beautiful spring night, Roa and his familiar green #91R started on the inside of row four. The 31-year-old driver started making forward progress just before the halfway point in the race and was up to seventh on lap 13. Three laps later he clawed his way another spot forward to sixth. He hit the top five on the 20th circuit before slipping back to sixth on lap 26. That is where he stayed until the checkers.

For finishing sixth, Roa collected the “Shawn McDonald Sixth Place Award” in memory of the “World’s #1 Sprint Car Fan,”

Even though it was only the fourth appearance in the eight races the series has run in 2022, Roa is currently 14th in the championship point standings. Counting two starts in the ASCA/CAS 360 Series earlier this year in Arizona, he has contested six non-wing races in 2022. Thus far, he has a second-place finish, one fourth, a pair of fifth-place results, and two sixth-place endings.

The busy Garden Grove, California-based racer is taking the next three weeks off before returning to the cockpit to defend his title at the “Salute to Indy” at Perris on May 28th.

The team is currently exploring the possibilities of adding some marketing partners for July’s trip to the Midwest for “Indiana Sprint Week.” If interested in joining forces with the longtime West Coast team for the “Toughest Week in Sprint Car Racing,” contact Roa at the information provided within this release.

Brody Roa merchandise is available online. You can see it all in his store which is packed with great items including t-shirts, sweatshirts, caps, beanies, baby onesies, plush blankets, jigsaw puzzles, stickers, notebooks, tote bags, wine tumblers, mugs, bandana pet collars, and more. To check it out, please visit the following website https://www.brodyroa.com/shop/.

In 2022, Roa will race USAC/CRA, USAC National, and other select events, in his #91R BR Performance/HD Industries Eagle. He will also drive the #8M for May Motorsports in select USAC West Coast events. The 2019 USAC Southwest and 2017 USAC West Coast champion is always open to discussing other driving opportunities.

Roa and the team want to thank the following sponsors for making the 2022 season possible. HD Industries, Burris Racing, Sander Engineering, Inland Rigging, Caltrol, “Biker” Bruce Fischer, Competition Suspension, ALR Virtual Services, K-1 Race Gear, Molecule, Rod End Supply, Driven Racing Oil, Baldwin Filters, and NGK Spark Plugs. In addition, the veteran driver offers thanks to RDM Mechanics, Fastenal, Coopers Propane, Ten West Towing, Ten West Environmental, TJM Distribution, and Westco International for sponsoring the #8M he will pilot for Jayson May on 10 occasions in 2022.

If you or your company would like to jump on board and receive recognition as a team partner throughout the 2022 racing season, please give the two-time USAC champion racer a phone call or drop him a note at the contact information on the top of this release.

Fans can learn more about Roa and the team at https://www.brodyroa.com/. Fans can also check out the team news at Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/br91r/.

WILLIAMS GETS 10th AT PERRIS USAC/CRA RACE – BAKERSFIELD SPEEDWAY NEXT

(Hesperia, CA, May 6th, 2022) After a trek to Arizona the previous week, Trent Williams was able to race closer to home last Saturday night when the USAC/CRA Series returned to Perris Auto Speedway. After 30-hard laps of racing, the Apple Valley, California resident came home 10th in the main event.

Making his second 2022 appearance at the famous Riverside County half-mile clay oval, Williams started the 30-lap feature outside row five in 10th. The 2014 PAS Young Guns Sprint Car champion see-sawed between eighth and tenth in a huge pack throughout the race. He was ninth with four laps to go but slipped back to 10th at the checkered flag. While he finished 10th, he was only a quarter straightaway out of fourth.

Before battling in the main event, Williams qualified 10th in the 24-car field with a time of 16.952. And he was one of only 10-cars to qualify in the 16s on the night. In his 10-lap heat race, “T-DUB” started fourth, and ran as high as third before ending up in the fourth-place spot.

Williams continues to climb in the USAC/CRA championship standings After last Saturday’s race, he is up to 15th. That is impressive considering he did not contest the first three races of the year.

Going back to last Labor Day Weekend, Williams has eight straight top 10 finishes. And going back to May 1st, 2021, the Cal State Fullerton graduate has finished in the top 10 in 11 of 13 races.

The series and Williams are off this weekend but will return to action on the 14th when USAC/CRA visits the Bakersfield Speedway for the first time in 2022. That will be followed by a return to Perris for the annual “Salute To Indy” on May 28th.

Williams would like to thank marketing partners Victory Boys Performance, Sorrento Homes, and JasonR.Photos for making it possible to race his Maxim Chassis/Shaver Engines #52V during the 2022 season. He also wants to send a special thanks to Russell and Jean Martin for the use of their truck and trailer to get the #52V to the track last week. If you or your business would like to be a partner of the Victory Boys racing endeavors, please call (760) 780-8782 or mailto:trent.williams.racing@gmail.com.

MUST SEE RACING TO INVADE HISTORIC NORTH WILKSBORO IN AUGUST

May 6, 2022 – North Wilkesboro Speedway released its updated schedule on Thursday afternoon, and it revealed that the Must See Racing Sprint Series presented by Engine Pro will be there for a two-race weekend August 12-13 as part of the tracks reopening. A practice date will be held on August 11.

The historic 0.625-mile track, located 80 miles north of Charlotte, was an annual mainstay on the NASCAR Cup Series schedule for decades until the track closed after the 1996 season. Jeff Gordon won that last race on September 29, 1996. The track features a unique uphill backstretch and downhill outstretch and is highly popular with race fans. The track re-opened briefly in 2010 for a handful of stock car events before shuttering for good.

Must See Racing’s appearance at North Wilkesboro will be the first-time winged sprint cars have ever visited the track that originally opened in 1949. Must See Racing’s debut at North Wilkesboro will be dependent on a test that will be conducted at the track in the near future. Details Monday were scarce, but MSR president Jim Hanks did confirm the event and indicated more details will be announced in the coming days. "We really appreciate the opportunity as we look forward to competing at such a historically significant track with its rich racing history. It is a real honor to be a part of this high-profile grass roots event."

Although the purse and event details haven’t been firmed up, it is expected that each night will pay $4,000 to win and be highlighted by a 25-lap feature event each night. With the Steadfast For Veterans Challenge money, fast qualifier bonus, and heat race monies, a driver who sweeps both nights could potentially walk off with $10,400.

The track will host a series of races on the asphalt in August before the asphalt is removed and the track will become dirt for multiple races in October. The track will be repaved later in the year will a full staple of races on the new asphalt in the future.

This will be the first time MSR has competed at a track that has featured NASCAR Cup events in the past since it raced at Bristol Motor Speedway in 2011. The all-time existing track record is expected to fall once the powerful winged 410 sprint cars hit the track. MSR also indicated that SPEED SPORT / MAVTV would play a key role in this event and further broadcast details will be announced one they are finalized.

The track has played an important part of American motorsports history. All three of NASCAR’s premier divisions have competed at the track over the years. The all-time winners list is a who’s who of racing greats. Fireball Roberts, Junior Johnson, Lee Petty, Richard Petty, David Pearson, Bobby Allison, Cale Yarborough, Darrell Waltrip, Mark Martin, and Dale Earnhardt are just a few of the greats who have graced victory lane at North Wilkesboro.

Clinton County Speedway to Honor Winningest Sprint Car Driver

Mill Hall, PA – Clinton County Speedway successfully brought 410 Sprint Car racing back to the 3/8th mile oval for the first time in over a decade in 2021. This year, with much anticipation from fans and drivers, the 410s will return on Saturday, August 13th, presented by NAPA/Toner Auto Parts.

This year’s 410 race will be named in honor of the speedway’s all-time 410 sprint car feature winner, Phil Walter of McClure, PA. Walter was the 1993 division champion and has 29 victories at the speedway. Walter’s first career win at Clinton County came on May 12, 1989. He earned four wins during the Speedway’s inaugural season in 1989.

“Walter was one of the original stars of the Clinton County Speedway,” says speedway promoter Jason McCahan. “We are thrilled to honor Phil Walter and his accomplishments, especially for what he has done for sprint car racing at Clinton County Speedway. Because we are honoring Phil Walter and his familiar #63, we are working hard to make this a $6,300 to win race.”

Walter had 93 career starts over eleven seasons and had a 31% winning average. He was a three-time winner of the Ed Shafer Memorial and a two time winner of the Syracuse Qualifier.

“Clinton County Speedway has always had a special place in my heart,” said Walter. “I have many great memories of the time that I spent racing there. We were very fortunate to win some races and enjoy some success that made it possible for us to continue racing.”

During Walter’s career at Clinton County, he drove for various car owners. He raced his own #63 for the first season at the speedway. During his career, he piloted cars for Dan Dietrich, Gene Jenkins, Carl Fry, Joe Watts, Lenny Krautheim, Selinsgrove Ford, Frank Anfuso, Gary Kratzer and Gary Ritter.

His most successful season at Clinton County Speedway was in 1993, while driving the #55 for Gene Jenkins. He won 10 of 15 races that season, claiming 6 wins in a row. He won the Syracuse Qualifier and the Speedway’s Championship.

“The Clinton County Speedway is a driver’s track,” adds Walter. “It is not about money or horsepower, but more about handling and driving. This creates good, close and exciting racing for both the spectators and the competitors.”

“Last year, the 410 race paid $4,000 and $400 to start, with Ryan Smith claiming the victory in an exciting race,” added McCahan. “We want to make this event memorable for Phil and his family, our drivers and our fans. We are welcoming businesses looking for marketing opportunities with the Phil Walter Classic to reach out to us and should email the speedway at info@clintoncountyspeedway.com

In addition to the sprint cars, the IMCA Modifieds and 4-Cylinder Stock cars will be part of the program. For the latest information about upcoming events, visit the speedway’s website www.clintoncountyspeedway.com or follow the speedway on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

 

 

Henderson and Sandvig Score First Top-Five Finish of 2022 at Knoxville Raceway

Knoxville, IA – May 4, 2022

The third time was the charm for Justin Henderson and Mike Sandvig Motorsports as the duo finally kicked off their 2022 racing campaign at the famed Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa Saturday night following two weekends of inclement weather.

The long wait paid off as the team picked up their first top five of the season with a fourth-place finish.

“It felt good to finally get on track on Knoxville, but I wish it didn’t take this long,” said Henderson. “We still had to deal with the elements in terms of wind and such, but overall, we hung on for a top five and that’s not bad.”

Henderson began the evening by timing in second quickest in qualifying with a fastest lap of 14.918 seconds. This marked the second consecutive week that Henderson showed speed right off the trailer as he set quick time at Knoxville the weekend before prior before rain entered the picture.

“The car is really stable early in the night, and it seems we have the right things working for us then,” he said. “We really have not been able to learn a whole lot to start the year just quite yet, but we know for sure we have speed.”

He backed up the impressive qualifying performance by advancing three positions in a heat race to finish third and lock himself into the A-main.

“It was one of those deals where we went into one and two and we were pretty much fourth right away because a row just didn’t take off,” said Henderson. “We were able to pass another car and anytime you are moving forward is a good time.”

Lining up from the outside-second row for the feature, Henderson quickly moved into the third position by the completion of lap one. He settled into the final podium spot throughout the first half of the event before slipping to fifth after a mid-race restart.

Following a fuel only open red with nine laps remaining, Henderson battled back to finish where he started- fourth- in the A-main for his first top-five of the season.

“We tried some things set up wise that the car drastically changed once the fuel load came off,” he said. “Being able to add fuel there worked to our advantage and the car got better and really came to life. I think we definitely know not to do that again, but overall; we had a fast car all night.”

Next up for the duo will their first two-race weekend of the season as they will return to Knoxville Raceway on Saturday before competing in the $5000-to-win Cressman Santitation Shootout at Huset’s Speedway in Brandon, South Dakota on Sunday.

Henderson enters Huset’s as the defending track champion in the 410 Sprint Car division and will be looking to back-up a 2021 season that saw him score five victories and 12 top five finishes in 18 events at the 3/8 mile oval dirt track.

“It’s my job to be up front and that’s what we are going there for,” he said. “This year will be tougher as I think the field will be a lot tougher this season. But we know how good we are there, and the goal is for that to not change. We’re coming in looking to win and that’s going to be our goal each week all season.”

FIRST "SUPER SERIES" EVENT OF 2022 SATURDAY AT SHARON; "410" SPRINTS, PRO STOCKS, RUSH SPORTSMAN MODS & ECONO MODS ON TAP

May 4, 2022

By Mike Leone


(Hartford, OH)…After a successful 2022 season opener last Saturday night featuring the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars, Sharon Speedway will host the first "Super Series" event of the 93rd anniversary season this Saturday night (May 7). On the card will be the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply "410" Sprint Cars, Gibson Insurance Agency Pro Stocks, HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds, and the Whelen Econo Mods. It's Mark Thomas Ford & Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Night. Race time is 7 p.m.

Cap Henry opened the season winning Saturday's $6,500 All Star show for his second career Sharon win. Saturday will be the first non-sanctioned "410" Sprint Car show of 2022. While $3,000 to-win, $250 to-start has again been posted as in years past, all of this year's "Super Series" events have been increased $2,400 with positions 2-20 seeing a raise! See complete payoff below.

The 2021 season started off with nine different winners in the first nine "410" Sprint Car races before Carl Bowser became the first repeat winner with the first two victories of his Sharon career. Bowser's teammate, George Hobaugh, was one of the 2021 winners and on Saturday night led the first 28 laps of the feature in search of his first career All Star win before fading to fifth at the finish. Like Bowser, Hobaugh also owns two career Sharon victories. Dave Blaney's 34 "410" victories at Sharon are the most amongst active racers.

The competitive Gibson Insurance Agency Pro Stock division not only has the highest average weekly car count of any regional speedway running the Stocks, but also boasts the highest payoff. This year if there are 24 or more cars, the Stocks will compete for $750 to-win, $85 to-start! Curt J. Bish won the last two track championships and now owns six career wins including the 2019 $10,000 "Steel Valley Pro Stock Nationals". Sharon utilizes Penn-Ohio Series rules as drivers can earn points towards their weekly championship program. Alan Dellinger, who still competes part-time, sits atop the division's all-time win list with 66. Steve D'Apolito's 32 wins are the next highest amongst active racers.

Like the Stocks, the HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds will be making their Sharon season debut on Saturday night. This year will mark the ninth year of existence for the division, which has averaged over a full field of cars annually at Sharon. If there are 24 or more cars, the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds will compete for $550 to-win, $85 to-start in 2022.

Hovis Auto & Truck Supply presents the RUSH Sportsman Modified Weekly Series Championship that pays the top 20 RUSH member drivers for their best 12 races across the region with $3,500 going to the champion. Saturday's show kicks off year three of the "Route 7 Rumble" Series Championship presented by Wedge Motorsports. That Series takes into account all races run between Sharon and Raceway 7 as the top eight drivers will share in the $2,500 point fund with $1,000 going to the champion.

The Whelen Econo Mods round out the four-division show on Saturday night. The Econo Mods joined the All Star Sprints last Saturday at the opener, and it was Jeremy Double earning his 17th career win. Double will look to go two-for-two on Saturday and inch closer to Brandon Blackshear's all-time leading total of 21 wins in the division. If there are 24 or more cars, the Econo Mods will compete for $450 to-win, $80 to-start in 2022.

Summit Racing Equipment will present the hard charger award on Saturday night to the "410" Sprint Car division. The driver that passes the most cars in the feature will receive a $100 Summit gift card. In the event of a tie, the tiebreaker will be the driver that finished highest in the feature.

Hartlaub Leads Lincoln 358 Sprint Championship Points

Steady Performances and Resilience Propel Team to the Top

Abbottstown, PA – May 5, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Kody Hartlaub has had a solid start to his 358 sprint car season, but it certainly hasn’t been dull or easy.

After five races at Lincoln Speedway, in only his second full season, Hartlaub finds himself atop the season point standings in a highly competitive division, but he and his team have had to overcome challenges to get to where they are.

April 9th: Lincoln Speedway / Abbottstown, PA

(28 cars, Heat 3rd, A-main 9th)

Beginning with the April 9th show, with two prior events in the books, Lincoln Speedway moved into their handicapping format for the 358 sprint cars. In this format, heat races are lined up by random draw. The top two finishers from each heat race become part of the handicapped group. Members of that group are lined up in the front rows of the feature based on their season points average, with the lowest average starting on the pole.

Four 10-lap heats were set for the 28 teams on hand. Hartlaub rolled off 7th in the final heat race but surged into 4th by the end of the first circuit. He methodically worked his way into 3rd on lap seven and then set his sights on reaching the valuable runner up spot. Although he was pressuring 2nd place Nash Ely, Hartlaub ran out of time.

Hartlaub started mid-pack (12th) in the 20-lap A-main. While he was able to move into 11th early in the race, the car just didn’t have much more in it on this night. Thanks to a little attrition, Hartlaub gained a couple more spots and came home 9th in the Brewer Home Improvements / Moose Blocks / Smith Titanium / SRR Engines / Siegel Racing / T&N Solutions / Jason Emlet Iron Valley Real Estate / Bingham Appraisals / Pretzel Boy / HAAS Shocks / C.H. Folk & Son Feeds / Chop Designs / Herr Electric, Hartlaub Racing No.2.

April 16th: Lincoln Speedway / Abbottstown, PA

(31 cars, Heat 4th, A-main 4th)

Mid-April brought 31 cars to Lincoln Speedway. Once again four 10-lap heats were lined up by the pill draw and once again Kody Hartlaub found himself in the final heat race of the day. He lined up 5th and quickly made a move into 3rd when the race went green.

As Hartlaub worked to find his way into a coveted top-2 handicap spot prior to the race’s midpoint, he ripped a tear-off from his helmet. Unfortunately the right mounting post was loose and all the tear-offs released in a single pull, leaving him with no way to get clear visibility. Instead of moving forward, Hartlaub found himself slipping backwards. He hung on to finish 4th.

“Wiping the visor with my gloves only made visibility worse. I could see well enough to survive and not endanger myself or anyone else, but I couldn’t run hard and be aggressive.“, Hartlaub explained.

The snafu during qualifying put Hartlaub deep in the field for the 20-lap A-main. These kinds of nights usually go one of two ways. In some cases, a driver will finish poorly and write the night off to tough luck. In other cases, a driver uses the opportunity to show his team and the fans they should never count him out. The latter seems to fit Hartlaub.

Starting 16th, he was on a mission from the drop of the green. The East Berlin, PA resident charged through the field, reaching the top-10 by lap 5 and the top-5 by lap 13. By the time the checkers waived, Hartlaub had reached 4th.

There were plenty of smiles in the Hartlaub pits following the effort. Not only was it an impressive run that salvaged what could have been a disappointing night thanks to a fluke helmet issue, Kody had taken over the top spot in the season point standings.

April 30th: Lincoln Speedway / Abbottstown, PA

(29 cars, Heat 2nd, A-main 12th)

The final April event for the 358 sprint cars at Lincoln Speedway brought yet another deep field, this time 29 cars. As had become the norm this season the night would consist of four 10-lap heats with the top 2 entering the handicap.

The one thing Kody Hartlaub can’t seem to get to go his way so far this year is his pill draw. Once again, he found himself in the back half of the starting lineup for his heat race. He was up to the challenge though, working his way up from his 6th starting spot and into 2nd.

With his best A-main starting spot secured since opening night back in March, Hartlaub was eyeing his first podium finish since then as well. Unfortunately on lap two he became a victim collected by an incident in front of him.

Hartlaub’s machine suffered damage to the nerf bar, wing and headers. Amazingly his team, with help from competitors, was able to bolt on new headers and make repairs on the other damage in time to allow Hartlaub to rejoin the rear of the field for the restart. He was able to climb nine spots in the remaining laps, salvaging a 12th place finish.

“I think we were definitely a top-5 car tonight, probably even a podium car, if we hadn’t gotten caught up in that early crash. That’s racing. It happens. I have to thank my team and the others who pitched in to get us fixed up and back out there. Really proud of my team.“, Hartlaub commented. “We were able to get back out there, gain some spots and save our night from being a total loss. That could be big when we get down to the end of the season (in points).”

Eleven scheduled races remain for the 358 sprints at Lincoln Speedway in 2022. The points championship is likely to be a great battle to the end among numerous teams.

“We’ve been building the depth of our program. That’s another important part of competing for points. First it was just trying to have two of each critical part. Now we are in the process of preparing a second car and motor so we’re not at risk of missing any races if we run into issues. “, Hartlaub shared.

Victory has eluded Hartlaub and his team thus far in 2022, but their steady performances and ability to recover from setbacks, would indicate that’s a goal they will reach.

Up Next

Hartlaub tentatively has Path Valley Speedway Park (PA) on his schedule for May 14th. Stay tuned to Kody Hartlaub Racing or Addicted2Dirt PR on social media for updates closer to race day.

The next firm plan for the team is the 358 Summer series event on May 21st at Lincoln Speedway (PA), which will also be Kid’s Night featuring Big Wheel races.

(SODUS, NY) – Mother Nature 2, CRSA Sprints 0. At least this time we aren’t talking about over a foot of snow.

Blake Carrick Takes Two Top-10’s Out of Chico, CA

PETERSEN MEDIA: Spending the weekend running a 410ci engine in Chico, CA, Blake Carrick would have a solid outing that culminated in him pocketing an eighth-place finish on Friday night and a ninth-place finish on Saturday in King of the West Series action.

“It was a fun weekend running the 410ci engine both nights, and we had some good speed,” Blake Carrick said. “Saturday night we were in a really good spot, but I struggled on restarts, and it cost us quite a few spots.”

Friday night would go off as an unsanctioned 410ci event and Carrick would time his CVC/Cemex/Interstate Oil backed entry in fourth fastest in his qualifying group. Lining up fourth in his heat race, Carrick would pocket a fourth-place finish and it would place him 12th on the starting grid for the 25-lap feature event.

When the race came to life, Carrick would get off to a slow start as he would slip back through the field and find himself in the 17th position by the fifth lap.

Able to settle in as the race got into a grove, Carrick wasted no time racing his way back into the Top-10 as he took the 10th position on 10th lap.

Working into ninth a lap later, Carrick would use a late restart to take over eighth, where he would go on to cap his night off.

Saturday night saw the King of the West Series roll into town for the 10th running of the David Tarter Memorial and Carrick got off to a very good start as he timed in fourth fastest amongst the 30-cars checked into the pit area.

Lining up fourth in his heat race, Carrick would finish third and accumulate enough points to make himself eligible for the Sunnyvalley Dash.

Taking the green flag from the second row in the Dash, Carrick would race to a second-place finish which put him on the front row of the 35-lap feature event alongside fellow young gun, Corey Day.

Settling into third once the action kicked off, a myriad of restarts would hinder Carrick as he would fall back each time the races resumed.

Falling all the way back to 10th late in the race, Carrick would find a way to get back to ninth and with the waiving of the checkered flag.

“We were pretty good under green flag action, but restarts were brutal,” Carrick added.

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

ON TAP: Blake Carrick is set for Placerville Speedway on Saturday night.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-11, Wins-0, Top 5’s-3, Top 10’s-7

Austin McCarl Puts on Passing Exhibition During First Feature of Year at Knoxville Raceway

PC- Chuck Stowe

PETERSEN MEDIA: Pleased with how his night was going one week ago at Knoxville Raceway before being rained out, Mother Nature cooperated this past Saturday and allowed Austin McCarl to put on a show during the feature event as he charged from 17th to third.

“Saturday night was really good for us, but we need to figure out our qualifying gameplan a little better,” Austin McCarl said. “We have really good race speed, but we can’t start 17th every night and expect to pass cars like that and contend for wins.”

McCarl got the night kicked off by timing the Country Builders/Ochoco West/Tucker Trucking/Kolthoff Electric backed No. 88 entry in 16th quickest of the 30 cars that checked into the ‘Sprint Car Capital of the World’.

Lining up on the front row of his heat race, the Altoona, IA native would get the early jump but would feel pressure from eventual feature event winner, Brian Brown.

With Brown getting by McCarl, ‘The Big Unit’ would pester Brown for the race lead but would ultimately settle for a runner up finish.

Locking into the feature event, McCarl had his work cut out for himself as he lined the Brown and Miller/Walkers/Offill Family Farms entry up in the eighth row of the 20-lap finale.

A great start to the ‘A’ saw McCarl power his way up to 13th in just one lap before the first stoppage of the night came. Another quick four-lap run saw McCarl crack the Top-10 and jump into eighth when the red was needed for AJ Moeller.

When the race action resumed, McCarl was able to work his way into the Top-5 at the race’s halfway point as he took over the fourth position before snatching third on a lap 12 restart

Once in third, McCarl set his sights on the lead Matt Juhl and Brian Brown who raced ahead of him but was unable track them down despite getting into traffic in the race’s final laps.

With Justin Clark’s checkered flags waiving, McCarl capped off an impressive run from 17th with a third-place finish.

“It was a cold night, but it was great to get a complete night in and put together a really fun run in the ‘A’,” McCarl said. “The weather looks great for this weekend, and I am looking forward to getting back to Knoxville Raceway, and equally as excited to get the Huset’s Speedway season underway on Sunday.”

Austin McCarl and Country Builders Racing would like to thank Country Builders, Ochoco West Lumber, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, Walkers, Tucker Trucking, Kolthoff Electric, MAAS Brothers Powder Coating, Offill Family Farms, Stealth Cam, Bosma Family Farms, Muddy, HRP, Penske Racing Shocks, A.R.T. Enterprise, Engler Machine, Aurora Rod Ends, Schoenfeld, Wilwood, Smith Ti, Kistler Engines, Rider Racing Engines, Moyle Engines, Hinchman Indy, Bell Helmets, Maxim Chassis, B. Scadden Design, and Octane Ink for their continued support.

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

ON TAP: Country Builders Racing and Austin McCarl will be right back in action on Saturday night as they make a return trip to Knoxville, IA, and again on Sunday as they kick the 2022 Huset’s Speedway season off.

Kerry Madsen Sixth at Bristol Bash

PETERSEN MEDIA- Make the decision late last week to head to Bristol, TN with questionable weather in Knoxville, IA, Kerry Madsen and the Roth Motorsports team ran well against the World of Outlaws as the Australian native finished sixth during Saturday’s Bristol Bash finale.

“Honestly, we were really good all weekend, but track position was just crucial,” Kerry Madsen said. “The only blemish to Saturday night really was just our Dash draw.”

Taking part in two nights of action with ‘The Greatest Show on Dirt’, Madsen got Friday night started by timing the Roth Enterprises/HR Livestock Transportation/Jason, Tara, and Cole Roth Cattle Co. backed No. 83JR entry in ninth fastest in qualifications.

Lining up in the second row of his heat race, passing would prove to be quite the task with the speeds that the dirt covered Bristol Motor Speedway provided all weekend long. Finishing fourth in his heat, ‘The Mad Man’ would move into the feature event and take the green flag from the 12th starting position.

From the sixth row, Madsen would go to work as he spent most of the feature event chasing after teammate James McFadden and Brad Sweet. Able to get by McFadden, Madsen would vie for position in the Top-10, but would come up short as he couldn’t get past Sweet as he settled for the 11th spot.

Returning to action on Saturday night for the $25,000-to-win finale, Madsen would flex his muscle early with his Toyota power under the hood as he timed in third fastest in time trials.

Lining up on the pole of his heat race, Madsen would get the jump and never look back. Picking up the win over David Gravel, Madsen would move into the DirtVision Fast Pass Dash where the six-pill then lined him up in the third row of the shootout.

Finishing sixth, Madsen would take the green flag for the feature event from the third row where he would find himself on the outside of the Top-Five for the duration of the race. Chasing after David Gravel for fifth, passing opportunities would continue to be prime at Bristol and he would be unable to make his way into fifth.

Turning in some extremely strong slaps inside the famed colosseum, Madsen would cap the weekend off with a sixth-place finish.

“Big thanks to the Roth Motorsports team for allowing us to change our schedule and make sure we were able to get a couple of races in,” Kerry Madsen added. “Thanks to Dennis and Teresa Roth for their love of this sport and the continued support, and Paul and Gravy for their hard work. We are getting better and I think our first win together is around the corner.”

The Roth Motorsports team would like to thank Roth Enterprises, HR Livestock Transportation, Jason, Tara, And Cole Roth Cattle Co., Roth Investments, Speedway Engines, Toyota, TRD, Mobil1, FK Rod Ends, Vahlco Wheels, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, Kent Performance, Kaeding Performance, and Smith Titanium for their support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-8, Wins-0, Top 5’s-1, Top-10’s-3

ON TAP: Roth Motorsports and Kerry Madsen will continue to run with the World of Outlaws this weekend as they head to Eldora Speedway for Let’s Race Two weekend.

Dover Bound for Park Jefferson and Huset's This Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - SPRINGFIELD, Neb. (May 4, 2022) - A wet start to the 2022 season has slowed Jack Dover, who is aiming to triple his race count this weekend.

Dover plans on competing in his No. 53 sprint car on Saturday at Park Jefferson Speedway in North Sioux City, S.D., during a Midwest Sprint Touring Series event before making his season debut in the Rick and Chris Bowers' No. 81 sprint car on Sunday at Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D.

"I'm looking forward to getting some racing in this weekend," he said. "Hopefully we can have some good weather and make some laps. It hasn't been an ideal first month to the season with all of the rainouts."

Dover, who hasn't competed in a little more than a month because of inclement weather, is hopeful to continuing his winning ways at Park Jefferson Speedway. He picked up a victory during his most recent start at the track in May 2020. Dover also won two races at the oval in 2018, two in 2017, three in 2016, one in 2015 and his first in 2014.

"It's just one of those tracks that seems to suit me," he said. "I've been fortunate to be able to win a lot of races there and be a contender in the ones we didn't win. The goal is to get our first win of the season on Saturday."

Sunday's Cressman Sanitation Shootout marks the start of a second straight season of running full time at Huset's Speedway, where Dover finished fourth in the championship standings and garnered the Rookie of the Year Award last year. It was the first time since 2007 that he competed regularly in the 410ci sprint car division and it paid off as Dover scored his first career 410 triumph.

"We exceeded our expectations last year and are aiming to take another step forward this season," he said. "Rick and Chris put a lot of work into their team in the offseason so I can't wait to get the season underway with them."

SEASON STATS -

1 race, 0 wins, 1 top five, 1 top 10, 1 top 15, 1 top 20

UP NEXT -

Saturday at Park Jefferson Speedway in North Sioux City, S.D., with the Midwest Sprint Touring Series and Sunday at Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., for the Cressman Sanitation Shootout

Chase Johnson and Quinn Motorsports earn three wins in month of April

By Gary Thomas

Watsonville, CA…Towards the end of last season Chase Johnson and Quinn Motorsports certainly demonstrated some immense speed, which gave the team considerable anticipation for 2022.

Taking that into account the combination put it all together during the month of April and raced to their third victory of the season this past Friday at Watsonville’s Ocean Speedway.

“We had a really strong April and it felt great to snag a couple of wins at Ocean Speedway, as well as one at Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare,” Johnson commented. “Tyler Silva, Jesse and Sean have had the car on point all year long. Last Friday in Watsonville I was able to sneak by for the lead early on and stay out front the remainder of the feature. Hopefully we can now continue this momentum at the next race in Placerville. I can’t thank Sean Quinn and all our sponsors enough for the opportunity to drive this 28 Sprint Car.”

This most recent Friday night saw Johnson put together a stellar outing with the Ocean Sprints presented by Taco Bravo. The Penngrove, CA driver opened the evening by qualifying second, followed up with a third-place finish in the heat race. After a runner up in the Dash it placed the Quinn Developments/ Our Heroes Dreams/ Pit Stop USA No. 28 on the front row for the 30-lap finale.

The recently turned 27-year-old settled into second at the start and bided his time for lapped traffic. Once that came into play he pounced on the leader to slip under and grab the top-spot on lap six. Johnson worked traffic the rest of the way and hit his marks to cross under the Ed Entz checkered flag for his third consecutive win with Quinn Motorsports.

Next up for Johnson and Quinn Motorsports will be a trip up the hill to Placerville Speedway this Saturday to compete with the Thompson’s Winged 360 Sprint Cars. The evening dubbed as “Mother’s Day Madness” will be show live on FloRacing. Tickets can also be purchased at https://www.eventsprout.com/event/points-race-7 or at the gate on race day, which opens at 3pm.

Chase Johnson and Quinn Motorsports would like to thank Quinn Developments, Our Heroes Dreams, Pit Stop USA, CR Powder Coating, Valley Auto Body, Advanced Metal Finishing, King Racing Products, Sellers Race Wings, Fresno Deputy Sheriffs Association, Nuttall/Coleman Attorney, Stark Naked Graphics, Kings Speedway/Peter Murphy Racing, Bell Helmets and K1 Race Gear for their support this season.

CRSA Sprints To Make 30th Appearance At Penn Can Friday

Press Release by Steven Ovens – May 4th, 2022

(SODUS, NY) – One of the more anticipated CRSA Sprints series kickoffs in recent history is set to kick off on Friday night in Susquehanna, PA at the same venue that started the 2021 Series. Penn Can Speedway will start a 17-race schedule that will span the states of New York and Pennsylvania to crown the 2022 Super Gen Products with Champion Power Equipment CRSA Sprints champion.

One of the favorites going into Friday night will be Spencer, NY’s Kyle Pierce, who had a breakout season with the CRSA Sprints last year. A breakout season that started with his first career CRSA win at his home track Penn Can Speedway. Pierce would go on to collect another win at Utica-Rome, a top 5 points finish and Rookie of the Year honors.

Four-time and defending CRSA Sprints champion Jeff Trombley hasn’t forgotten about that night in May of 2021. Trombley had made the potential two-for-one winning move before an untimely caution relegated Trombley back to third for the ensuing restart. He will be back for unfinished business behind the wheel of Warren Alexson’s No. 3a.

Trombley got redemption in July, winning in CRSA’s second trip of three to Penn Can in 2021.

“We took advantage of a good starting spot and the guys got the car really good- probably the best I’ve ever had here (Penn Can),” said Trombley in July while standing in McDonald’s Victory Lane.

Penn Can Speedway was also particularly good to Dana Wagner in 2021, with Wagner never finishing outside the Top 5 in all three starts. Tyler Emmons was also a pleasant surprise Top 5 runner in the Fall Penn Can Speedway stop last year.

“Get your can to ‘The Can’” on Friday night and see the start of what promised to be another incredible season of winged action with the CRSA Sprint Cars.

The CRSA 305 Sprints are powered by Super Gen Products with their Champion Power Equipment located in Newark, NY. Associate sponsors for 2022 include A-Verdi Storage Containers, Midstate Basement Authorities, CNY Farm Supply, the Maguire Family of Dealerships, Powdertech Powdercoating, Pit Stop Convenience Stores, PJC Sprayfoam, Profab Enterprises, Eagle Enterprises, Bonnell’s Rod Shop, DisBatch Brewing Company, Magsarus Ignitions, Hoosier Racing Tire, Insinger Performance with their Stinger Race Fuel, My Race Pass and is owned and operated by Mike Emhof Motorsports.

Goldesberry Makes Gains at Knoxville

Springfield, IL (May 3, 2022) – Jordan Goldesberry and his Rockstar Energy Drink team made the tow last weekend to Knoxville Raceway for weekly competition. On a cold and windy night, the track proved to be tricky.

With 30 410 sprint cars on hand, Goldesberry would be the first car out to qualify on a fast track. He would qualify 22nd but had his fastest qualifying lap at Knoxville. This would put him in the fourth row of his heat race. As the green flag dropped, two cars in front of him about came together and Goldesberry had hit the brakes to avoid contact. After things settled down Goldesberry would finish 9th. Goldesberry would find himself in the B main and went on to pick up the final transfer to qualify for the nights feature event. Starting in the last row, Goldesberry was able to pass some cars early on. With 11 laps to go, Goldesberry would come to a stop in turn 4 after blowing a power steering line.

“This past week was the best I have ever been at Knoxville. I know the results don’t necessarily show it but I feel we made good strides.” said Goldesberry. “We look forward to getting back.”

This weekend the Rockstar Energy Drink backed team will be in action at Sycamore Speedway in Sycamore, IL with the IRA.

Sides Planning to be Behind the Wheel This Weekend at Eldora Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BRISTOL, Tenn. (May 4, 2022) - Jason Sides has been busy off the track working through numerous phone calls, emails and text messages that have flooded Sides Motorsports since it was announced last week that Sides is creating an opportunity for another driver to pilot the No. 7s.

For now, the plan is for Sides to race this Friday and Saturday at Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, during the #LetsRaceTwo event with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series.

"The bigger the track the easier it is on the body," he said. "The smaller tracks are more on and off the gas, back and forth, on the brakes hard. On the bigger tracks you get into one big rhythm and it doesn't change every corner."

Sides has enjoyed success at the high-banked oval, where he captured a Kings Royal title in 2004 and the opener of the Four Crown Nationals in 2009.

"We've raced there for a lot of years," he said. "The biggest difference is the banking and all the other improvements they've done there. You can see from the first time we went there to now everything has grown and made it more corporate looking."

Sides is heading from one half-mile track to another after tackling Bristol Motor Speedway last weekend. He was credited with a 20th-place result during both nights of the World of Outlaws Bristol Bash.

"It's not very raceable unless you're out front and it's hard on equipment," he said. "Therefore, we just started and parked all weekend to make the right decision for our team to not put ourselves in a bad position."

QUICK RESULTS -

April 29 - Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, Tenn. - Qualifying: 20; Heat race: DNS (7); Feature: 20 (23).

April 30 - Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, Tenn. - Qualifying: 22; Heat race: DNS (8); Feature: 20 (21).

Six Midwest Races on Tap During Month of May

Hartford, OH – May 4, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Coming off a solid four-race week that contained more ups than downs, Kyle Reinhardt prepared to hit the road once again with the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions. His goal was to turn those performances into sustained momentum.

Reinhardt and the Capitol Renegade team were looking to keep things trending in the right direction and given their destinations, they would have to earn it. The tests would come in the form of Lernerville Speedway (PA), a new venue for the NJ native, and Sharon Speedway (OH), a track that presented him with significant challenges in 2021.

April 29: Lernerville Speedway / Sarver, PA

(44 cars, Qualifying 4th Group B/15th Overall, Heat 2nd, A-main 14th)

Considering he had never turned a lap at Sarver, PA’s Lernerville Speedway before, Kyle Reinhardt’s night didn’t get off to a bad start at all. He registered the 15th quickest lap of the 44 cars on hand, good enough for 4th quick in his group.

Reinhardt followed that up with a 2nd place finish in his 8-lap heat race. After starting 3rd, the sophomore member of the All Star series, charged into the runner-up spot on the opening lap and held onto it throughout.

Rolling off 12th for the 30-lap A-main in his Capitol Renegade / Capitol Custom Coaches & Trailers / Champion Hi-Tech Lubricants / J&J Auto Racing No.91, Reinhardt found himself battling hard to maintain track position throughout the event. He was able to hang tough, hovering between 12th-13th throughout, until the final lap when Sye Lynch slipped by and dropped Reinhardt to 14th at the finish.

April 30: Sharon Speedway / Hartford, OH

(41 cars, Qualifying 2nd Group B/7th Overall, Heat 2nd, A-main 13th)

Car counts for the All Stars topped 40 for the fourth consecutive event when the series rolled into Sharon Speedway in Ohio.

Reinhardt kicked off his night with an encouraging qualifying lap that landed him 7th quick overall and 2nd best in his group. It was only step one, but it was huge to a team that had failed to earn their way into two of three ASCoC events at the Hartford, OH facility in 2021.

The qualifying effort put Reinhardt on the pole of the second heat, with a good opportunity to grab the win and secure a spot in the dash. Unfortunately, George Hobaugh had other ideas. Reinhardt came home second to Hobaugh in the 8-lap qualifier.

In the opening laps of the 30-lap A-main, Reinhardt fell back slightly from his 11th starting spot. He managed to settle into 14th and hold that spot for the first 23 laps before recovering one position to 13th in the closing laps.

“Do we want to run 13th? Obviously not, but we have to stay focused on the positives. Last year we weren’t qualifying for some of these races or we were getting into the show through the B-main, so we’re going the right direction on things that we struggled with in the past. “, Reinhardt commented.

In 2021, Reinhardt’s first year on the tour, he netted a pair of top 10’s in the first seven races. Through seven events in 2022 Reinhardt only has one top-10, but that is not a telling measure of the start to his season.

Reinhardt has been more consistent thus far in 2022 and the stats show the improvement. At this point in 2021, Reinhardt’s average finish in heat races was 5.3. In 2022 he has improved that average to 3.6. Comparing his average A-main finish to date in 2022 to this point last year shows an improvement from 23.1 to 17.0.

“We’re clearly not where we want to be yet, but our slick track program is definitely improving. That was our biggest weakness last year, so I’m happy with the progress we’ve made. We’ll keep working at it and get to where we want to be. “, Reinhardt said. “We’re time-trialing better this year. That’s a big deal in this format. That was another thing we worked really hard to improve. “

Up Next

Reinhardt will take the upcoming weekend off due to the tire shortages in the sprint car world, but he will be in action at Lincoln Speedway (Abbottstown, PA) on Wednesday, May 11th against the World of Outlaws.

Kyle and the Capitol Renegade No.91 will rejoin the All Stars for a 3-race weekend May 13th-15th, with races at I-96 Speedway (Lake Odessa, MI) Friday, Wayne County Speedway (Orrville, OH) Saturday, and Waynesfield Raceway Park (Waynesfield, OH) Sunday.

The cars on display this summer include the famous Alex Morales Tamale Wagon driven by Bob Hogle, Allen Heath and others, the Bromme “Andy Gump” sprinter campaigned by Paul Jones and others, Jimmy Oskie’s Ol’ Paint #91, Parnelli Jones famous #98 midget, the Elton Forsyth/Steve Kennick #7 entry that broke Ascot’s track record twice, the late ‘50’s roadster constructed by Indy fabricator Bill Finley, the 1973 Cowan & Riggs #14 piloted to the CRA championship by Don Hamilton and the last Bruce Bromme Sr. and Jr. built car campaigned by all-time CRA and Ascot victor Dean Thompson.

“We feel this is a tremendous tribute to Ascot,” says Museum Coordinator Bill Wright. “We’ve tried to take a good cross section of cars and memorabilia from the period 1957 to 1990.

California cars have always had a certain look to them, and we think our visitors will be awestruck at the way these cars have been preserved. We’re really excited!”

Mother’s Day Madness brings action packed show to Placerville Speedway Saturday

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA…There will be no shortage of excitement and enthusiasm when the Placerville Speedway plays host to its annual “Mother’s Day Madness” extravaganza presented by the Mountain Democrat this Saturday May 7th.

The Russell Motorsports Inc. managed facility presents an eclectic and diverse show featuring the Thompson’s Winged 360 Sprint Cars, the USAC Western States Midgets, BCRA Lightning Sprints and the Mtn. Democrat Mini Trucks. To help celebrate Mother’s Day weekend the Coors Light Cold Zone will be offering Vizzy Mimosas during the night.

“We can’t think of a better way to celebrate mom than to bring her out to the races this Saturday at Placerville Speedway,” said RMI President Scott Russell. “It’s always a great show when you have both the Winged Sprint Cars and Midgets, plus you’ll add in the Lightning Sprints and Mini Trucks, which are routinely fun to watch as well. We are expecting another good car count, so hopefully everyone will come out and pack the grandstands.”

Fresh off his 67th career Sprint Car win at Placerville Speedway last weekend, Auburn’s Andy Forsberg brings the point lead into Saturday’s program. The 45-year-old veteran battled tooth and nail with Jodie Robinson to claim the hard-fought triumph. Templeton’s Kaleb Montgomery currently sits runner up in the standings and is just eight digits behind Forsberg going into the fourth point race of the year for the Thompson’s Winged 360s.

Elk Grove’s Bubba Decaires is not far behind in third, while he’s only 13-points out of the lead, one marker ahead of J. Robinson who ranks fourth. Completing the top-10 in the standings are Shane Hopkins, Justyn Cox, Stephen Ingraham, Jimmy Trulli, Michael Ing and Chris Masters.

The USAC Western States Midget portion of the night will mark their second appearance of the season, which is also part of the Elk Grove Ford Mini Series. San Diego’s AJ Bender sits atop the USAC Western States standings heading into the last tune up at Placerville Speedway prior to November’s “Hangtown 100.”

Ben Worth, Michael Faccinto, Travis Buckley and recent Placerville winner Jake Andreotti round out the top-five in the standings. On the Elk Grove Ford Mini Series side of things it’s Matt Wood Racing driver Shane Golobic who sits atop the points by just two markers over Faccinto.

The BCRA Lightning Sprints will hold their annual “Tracy Taylor Memorial” on Saturday with over $2,500 worth of prizes handed out during the night. Elk Grove’s Matt Land has returned to the dirt track world this season and brings the point lead into the event over Hunter Kinney and Greg Dennett.

Placerville’s Austin Struthers was a multi-time winner last season with the Mountain Democrat Mini Trucks and returned on opening night to snag yet another victory over Mike Miller, Howard Miller, Paizlee Miller and Thomas Jensen.

By Gary Thomas

Chico, CA…San Jose’s Tim Kaeding and Bates-Hamilton Racing competed in two nights of racing this past weekend at Silver Dollar Speedway, capping the double header with an 18th place finish on Saturday.

Kaeding opened the weekend on Friday by timing-in third fastest among his group in qualifying, before finishing fourth in his heat race. He eventually went on to finish 21st in the feature. Following an engine swap the team came back on Saturday and began the evening by qualifying 21st. TK then ran fifth in the opening heat race and 18th in the main event after getting into an early spin on lap six.

“It definitely wasn’t the weekend we were hoping for in Chico, but sometimes that’s how it goes in racing,” said Kaeding. “We will take this weekend off to regroup and recharge before coming back strong at the Peter Murphy Classic. I want to thank everyone that supports this Bates-Hamilton Racing team.”

Phillips Produces First Career Sprint Car Win During Career-Best Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - SAPULPA, Okla. (May 3, 2022) - Elizabeth Phillips earned her first career winged sprint car feature victory last Friday night at The New Tulsa Speedway.

In fact, Phillips swept the night by also winning her heat race at the dirt oval in Tulsa, Okla., to kick off a career-best weekend that was capped on Friday with a charge from 10th to third in the A Main at Creek County Speedway.

"I wasn't 100 percent sure how the weekend was going to go and I didn't have super high expectations due to having a pretty bad weekend the week before," she said.

Phillips was up in the air about her racing plans early last week following mechanical woes that ended the previous weekend early, but the decision to race paid off right away on Friday evening for the 17-year-old who is in her first full season of racing sprint cars.

"We had a pretty good start to the night," she said. "After hot laps we made a couple of changes for the heat race and were able to pick up the win. That was a pretty big confidence booster to start on the pole for the feature. I knew there were some pretty good drivers starting behind me. It was a matter of figuring out where I was fastest on the track. It truly was my first night at The New Tulsa Speedway as the previous week we only ran a couple of laps in hot laps so we were learning as we were going.

"I had to make the right calls in traffic and navigate through it. We had a couple of cautions that made me a little nervous, but I had a really strong car and the engine was super strong. To bounce back from a somewhat rough start to the season was a confidence booster.

"It was so awesome. I was glad to be able to have my whole family and Shane there to watch it. Unfortunately, I'm losing my crew chief in a couple of weeks as he's relocating to South Dakota. He's been working with me to learn what I like in the car. Our communication has really stepped up. To be in the Winner's Circle was huge. I had a bunch of family and friends and fans out there so that was special as well. Plus, it was really humbling being the only girl in the field and to come out on top."

The weekend wrapped up on Saturday at Creek County Speedway, where Phillips placed third in both her heat race and the A Main.

"I didn't get a great pill draw and the track was super heavy from all the rain so we finished third in the heat race," she said. "There was a lot of tough competition. Before the feature I told my guys, 'Let's try to make it through this race and keep our nose clean. Let's shoot for a top five and try to come out clean since we have a big week coming up.'

"We fell back a little on the start. Once I figured out a good line to run I was able to pick off a couple of cars. There were a couple of wrecks I was able to avoid. Surviving the night was one of the biggest things with the wrecks and tangle-ups. There was a huge pack of traffic that we were able to make it through cleanly. With about 10 laps to go we were sitting fifth or sixth and then there was a caution. After we restarted we missed a wreck that put us up to fourth. We got to third and had a couple more cautions before we finished with a green-white-checkered restart. We were right there with those guys in front so that meant a lot to back up our win on Friday with a podium on Saturday."

Next up for Phillips is an AmeriFlex OCRS IMCA Sprint Cars event on Saturday at Caney Valley Speedway in Caney, Kan., before she makes her debut at Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., on Sunday.

QUICK RESULTS -

April 29 - The New Tulsa Speedway in Tulsa, Okla. - Heat race: 1 (2); Feature: 1 (1).

April 30 - Creek County Speedway in Sapulpa, Okla. - Heat race: 3 (3); Feature: 3 (10).

SEASON STATS -

Jeff Halligan Remains Consistent; Scores Another Top 10
 

Risser Motorsports in Position for More Success

Port Royal, PA – May 3, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

On the heels of his 5th top-10, the most recent coming against the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions at Port Royal Speedway last weekend, Jeff Halligan returned to ‘The Speed Palace’ to begin chapter two of 2022.

‘Chapter two’ refers to the team’s phased approach to the season. The All Star event culminated chapter one. Now, entering the next phase, there are only three opportunities on the schedule to prepare for the next marquee event, the 2-day Bob Weikert Memorial at the end of May. The Saturday/Sunday show will pay $10,000 and $29,000 to win respectively and will once again include the All Star series. Saturday, April 30th presented the first of those three chances to be primed and ready for the next potential big pay day.

April 30: Port Royal Speedway / Port Royal, PA

(20 cars, Heat [1] 1st, Heat [2] 8th, A-main 6th)

The format for the night was dual 6-lap heats in which drivers could earn passing points. After six laps, points are earned based on starting position versus finishing position. Then, the original starting lineup is inverted and the field runs another six laps, again earning points based on their gain/loss of positions at the checkered flag.

A random pill draw set the initial heat lineups for the 20 teams on hand. The top nine drivers in points following the dual heat races would get a chance to draw for their starting spot inside the top-1o for the 25-lap feature event.

Jeff Halligan lined up 3rd for the first of his two heat races. He bolted to the lead on the opening lap and never looked back, earning the maximum points possible for the Risser Motorsports / TheTreeCenter.com / Victory Auto of Lewistown / EMM Sales & Service / Jake’s Golf Carts, No.45.

The second heat race was lined up by inverting the original starting lineup, putting Halligan 8th for the second 6-lap segment. He was unable to gain any ground in the short event, coming home right where he started.

Having missed an opportunity in the second heat race to earn a few passing points and move himself up in the main event starting lineup, Halligan prepared his plan of attack for the A-main from his 10th starting position.

Halligan charged into 8th on the opening lap, then gave up one spot on the following circuit. He held firmly onto 9th, not making much forward progress, until the race reached the final ten laps.

Halligan mounted a late charge, as he has done on several occasions this year, navigating his way from 9th to 6th in the closing laps, including a last lap pass for the final spot.

“We’re really close. We’re right there running with the top guys. We just missed an opportunity tonight. Should’ve been in the redraw…needed one spot in the second heat race. “, Halligan commented.

“I can’t be upset with our night. We finished 6th and put it in the trailer in one piece. It’s a little frustrating, but not as frustrating as having to put a second car together this week. “

With six top-10’s in seven races, Halligan now sits in 4th place in the 2022 410 Sprint Car Championship points standings at Port Royal Speedway, just 25 points out of 2nd place.

Up Next

Jeff Halligan and Risser Motorsports will be back at Port Royal on Saturday, May 7th.

Dominic Scelzi Records 50th Career Sprint Car Victory and Takes KWS/NARC Points Lead

Inside Line Promotions - CHICO, Calif. (May 3, 2022) - Dominic Scelzi achieved a pair of feats last weekend during two nights of competition at Silver Dollar Speedway.

Scelzi captured his 50th career winged sprint car triumph on Friday during the Brownell/Herseth Classic before using a third-place result on Saturday in the David Tarter Memorial to claim the lead in the King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series championship standings.

"It's pretty neat to get win No. 50," he said. "It took a long time, 10 years and a few months. I'm so excited with the speed that we have. We've been extremely consistent. We don't have as many wins at this point as we did last year, but we have the consistency. That's every bit as important as being able to win races. The next big milestone is 75 and then 100 wins. I think we're on track to be there a lot faster than how long it took to get to 50 wins."

Scelzi opened Friday by qualifying eighth quickest. He then won a heat race from the outside of the front row before capturing both the dash and feature from the pole position.

"We started on the outside and got a good start as we led every lap of the heat race," he said. "We led the dash throughout to get the pole for the feature. It was about as treacherous as I've seen a curb. We had a good pace early. As the curb got bigger we moved down the track. We had a restart and Corey Day was on the inside of me. He slid me into turn one. Then he slid himself into turn three and I ran the bottom to get back by him. From that point on we went unchallenged to get the win. That's back-to-back Brownell/Herseth Classic wins, which is really neat."

The team returned to the oval on Saturday for the second KWS/NARC event of the season. Scelzi timed in 14th quickest. A heat race win locked him into the 10th starting position in the A Main.

"With qualifying in the grease it made it tough," he said. "We did what we needed to do in the heat to win. We missed the dash and started 10 th in the feature, but I wasn't crazy worried because last year at that race we went from 15th to the lead and lost it on a green-white-checkered finish. On Saturday I had a terrible first start. The outside row biked up against the cushion and I had to check up. That cost me a few spots. I didn't get back to 10th until six or seven laps in. As the race went on we made our way forward. We ran second down from a straightaway and got to him, but just couldn't get by him. On nights we don't win we want to get the best possible finish, which is critical to defend our series championship. We did that on Saturday."

The third-place run gives Scelzi a four-point lead in the championship standings.

Scelzi plans to take this weekend off before returning to action May 13 at Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, Calif., and May 14 at Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, Calif., during the Peter Murphy Classic with the King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series and Sprint Car Challenge Tour.

Wilson Scores Podium During All Star Event at Lernerville Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - HARTFORD, Ohio (May 3, 2022) - Greg Wilson captured a podium for the third straight weekend thanks to a third-place effort last Friday at Lernerville Speedway.

The Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics and DNC Hydraulics backed Seeling Motorsports driver hustled into the runner-up position in the final laps of the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions event at the dirt oval in Sarver, Pa., before dropping a spot on the last lap by less than four hundredths of a second.

"We were really good," said Wilson, who won a heat race from third and advanced from seventh to fifth place in the dash. "I felt we were good from the time we unloaded until the end of the feature.

"It was one of those tracks where you needed to be patient. We were pretty good early and were running fourth or fifth. I started searching on the track and we got rolling around the middle to the top of turns one and two. I could float around the outside of people. As the race wore on our car changed a little and the track changed. We were in contention to catch Hunter (Schurenberg) and I felt we were pretty equal. We got to him in traffic, but never could do much with him. At the end the track cleaned off and he was running up in turns three and four. The track changed enough where it favored where he was running. It was one of those deals where I was still trying to win the race on the last lap. Tyler Courtney saw what was going on and nipped me at the line for second. I could have easily won the race as run third. I'm pretty happy with our direction."

The result was the second podium of the season for Wilson during All Star competition - his most with the series since 2019.

The weekend wrapped up on Saturday at Sharon Speedway, where Wilson placed third in his heat race and 14th in the feature.

"Early in the night you had to really run the wall aggressively and I wasn't really comfortable," he said. "In the feature we threw some stuff at it that we wanted to try. Not a lot of people moved forward. You had to get in line and wait for someone to make a mistake. We didn't get the result we wanted, but I feel like as a whole for the caliber of cars we raced with it was a good weekend for us."

Wilson plans on racing this Friday and Saturday at Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, during the #LetsRaceTwo event with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series.

Tanner Carrick 5th at David Tarter Memorial

PETERSEN MEDIA: Tanner Carrick overcame a tough night on Friday that saw engine trouble keep him on the sideline until the feature by putting together a very strong showing with the King of the West Series that culminated with a fifth-place finish during the David Tarter Memorial.

“The guys continue to give me a really good car, and that was the same story this past weekend in Chico, CA,” Carrick said. “We broke a roll pin on our engine Friday that kept us out of action until the feature. Once we hit the track, we started last and ran up to 12th and then came back and ran fifth on Saturday night with the KWS.’

Enduring engine trouble during hot laps on Friday night, Carrick and company were forced to make an engine swap that took place during heat race action.

With 24 cars on hand, Carrick would have a spot in the 25-lap feature event though he would tag the tail end of the field and take the green flag from 24th. From the tail end of the field, Carrick would have his elbows up as he began carving his way through traffic.

With double file restarts playing nice for him personally, Carrick was able to work into 13th by the eighth lap. Racing in close quarters action in the middle of the pack, Carrick would fall back to 16th at the race’s halfway point.

Gaining momentum in the race’s closing stages, Carrick would get back up to 13th on the 23rd lap before getting into 12th as he came to the checkered flag.

Saturday night saw the KWS roll into town for the 10th David Tarter Memorial, and Carrick would continue to showcase the same strong car that he had on display during Friday’s feature as he timed the CVC/Cemex/Interstate Oil backed No. 83T mount in 10th fastest in time trials.

Lining up on the front row of his heat, the Lincoln, CA driver would have a hard fought battle with reigning King of the West Champion, Dominic Scelzi. Finishing second, Carrick would not tabulate enough points for the Dash, but was safely in the 35-lap feature event.

Taking the green flag from the fourth row, Carrick was able to slowly work his way forward on a very technical Silver Dollar Speedway surface.

Moving into sixth on the fourth lap, Carrick would make his first appearance in the Top-5 on the sixth lap but would then fall back to seventh in a tight three-car battle.

Battling hard with Shane Golobic for much of the back half of the feature for the final spot in the Top-Five, Carrick would win the battle as he capped the weekend off with a fifth-place finish.

“It was another good weekend, but I feel bad that I haven’t been able to give this team another win since they keep giving me cars that are capable of winning these races,” Carrick said. “I just need to do a little better job in the seat, because I know the car will be there.”

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

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts: 20, Wins: 3, Top 5’s: 8, Top 10’s: 13

ON TAP: Tanner Carrick returns to action on Saturday night in Placerville, CA.

Joel Myers Jr Charges to 11th with King of the West in Chico, CA

PETERSEN MEDIA: Taking in two nights of racing action in Chico, CA over this past weekend, Joel Myers Jr would bounce back from a bit of a tough outing on Friday night, and promptly charged to 11th from 18th on Saturday night during KWS action.

“We put a different car together for last weekend, and we were a little slow to get going over the weekend,” Joel Myers Jr said. “Friday night I felt good in the feature, but after an early red the car didn’t feel the same and I couldn’t really get going. Saturday night we had an issue in qualifying but got it fixed for the heat, and then we had a nice run from the back to 11th on a pretty technical track in the feature.”

Friday night’s unsanctioned event saw the Sebastopol, CA driver tie the Starr Property Management/Morrison Concrete/Hi-Plains Building Division backed No. 83V machine in fifth fastest in his time trial group.

Lining up fifth in his heat race, the 16-year-old would slip back and finish sixth which placed him 16th on the starting grid from the 25-lap Brownell/Herseth Classic feature event.

From the eighth row, Myers Jr was able to slowly work through the field as he eyed a spot in the Top-10. Getting into 14th at the halfway point, Myers Jr would get into 12th just before a pair of red flags halted the action.

After the two stoppages were clear, the last seven laps would be a bit of a struggle for Myers Jr. Losing a couple of position in the closing stages of the race, Myers Jr ended Friday night with a 14th place finish.

Saturday marked the resumption of the King of the West schedule after a brief hiatus, and Myers Jr got the night underway by timing in 20th fastest.

Going to work on the Vertullo Motorsports car prior the heat race action, qualifying issues were rectified as a fourth-place finish locked ‘Jr’ into the 35-lap David Tarter Memorial feature event.

Taking the green flag form 18th, Myers Jr would do a masterful job or working his way forward on an old school type Silver Dollar Speedway surface that was presented for the feature event.

Finding himself up in 13th by the 11th lap, Myers Jr would make a slight bobble at the halfway point that saw him slip back to 17th.

Gathering his car back up, Myers Jr would soon move back into 13th, before working his way into 11th in the closing laps. Making a bid for a Top-10 in the final two laps, Myers Jr would bring his weekend to a close with an 11th place finish.

“For some reason qualifying has been the Achilles heel for us all year, and with these formats it can really make or break your night,” Myers Jr said. “We have good speed when it’s time to race, so I think we will be really good once we start getting timed in a little better. Thanks to all the Vertullo Motorsports guys for their hard work all weekend long.”

Joel Myers Jr Racing would like to thank Starr Property Management, Morrison Concrete, Hi-Plains Building Division, PitStopUSA, G&N Construction, System 1 Ignition, Dirt Dudes, Weld, Smith Ti, Y2K Gaming, Shark Racing Engines, Lucas Oil, Vaider, L Delo Designs, Walker Performance Filtration, ShopRico.Com, Tiner Hirst Enterprise, Kaeding Performance, Ogio, All About Fire Protection, and Triple X Race Co. for their continued support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts- 17, Wins-0, Top-5’s- 5, Top-10’s-6

ON TAP: Myers Jr and Vertullo Motorsports will be idle this weekend before reurning to action May 13th and 14th in Hanford, CA and Tulare, CA for the Peter Murphy Classic.

Justin Sanders Tallies Two Runner Up Finishes at Silver Dollar Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA: Over the last year, Justin Sanders has been extremely strong at Chico’s Silver Dollar Speedway. This past weekend, Sanders was in contention for wins during Friday and Saturday night competition though would just come up short as he earned two second place finishes.

“The last couple of years Silver Dollar Speedway has been really good to me, and this past weekend was another really good showing,” Justin Sanders said. “We were in contention to pick up a pair of wins, we just came up a little short during both feature events.”

Friday night would kick the doubleheader weekend off in Chico, CA with an unsanctioned 410ci event dubbed as the Brownell/Herseth Classic. Using a modified All Star/SCCT format, Sanders would time the Farmers Brewing/Mittry Construction backed No.2x entry in fastest in his time trial group, and that would place him on the front row of his heat race.

Getting the jump in his heat over teammate, Max Mittry, Sanders would go on to lead the way in the eight-lap race and lock himself into the six-lap Dash. Finishing third in the Dash, the Aromas, CA driver would line up in the second row of the 25-lap Brownell/Herseth Classic Feature event.

Settling into fourth when the feature event came to life, Sanders would race his way into third on the fifth lap. Running in third for much of the ‘A’, Sanders would move into second just after the race reached the halfway point and began pressuring Dominic Scelzi until a pair of stoppages slowed their battle.

Presented with a couple of late opportunities to challenge for the lead via double-file restarts, Sanders couldn’t quite make anything stick, as he settled for a runner up finish on this night.

Saturday night marked the 10th running of the David Tarter Memorial, a race that Sanders won in 2021 under SCCT sanction and looked to pick up the 2022 edition under KWS sanction.

Timing in second fastest in time trials with 30-cars checked into the pit area, Sanders would run third in his heat race and cement himself in both the Dash as well as the 35-lap feature event.

Tallying a fifth-place finish in the six-lap Dash, Sanders would take the green flag form the third row on a very technical Silver Dollar Speedway surface that had a bit of character mixed in.

Wasting no time racing his way to the front of the field, Sanders worked into second on the eighth lap as he began to chase after leader, Corey Day.

Racing by Day to take over the lead on the 14th lap, a caution would waive and negate the Aromas, CA driver’s efforts. The ensuring restart saw Sanders slip back to third where he ran for a handful of laps before clearing Landon Brooks to reclaim second where he would go on to finish.

“We had a run there on Day halfway through the feature but an untimely yellow negated the pass,” Sanders said. “We were a little off on restarts and spent the rest of the race trying to get back into second and he was able to get away. Overall, a good weekend for the team.”

Justin and his team would like to thank Farmers Brewing, Mittry Construction, North County Plastering, Alkaline88, Andy’s Construction, Roadside 24hr Service, Wicked Cushion, Roger’s Diner, Factory Kahne, BG Labels and Tee’s, Walker Performance Filtration, Dixon and Son Tires, Ernie’s Service Center, East Lake Village, FK Rod Ends, Triple X Race Co., DMI, Keizer Wheels, Wings Unlimited, Ti64 Titanium, AIS Heating and Sheet Metal, Fred Lint and Family, JonSan Racing, Sandblast Service, G&N Construction, Steitz Towing, Durden Construction, Ernie’s Service Center, and Steve Duppman Racing for their continued support in 2022.

Croft 14th at David Tarter Memorial

PETERSEN MEDIA- Rebounding from a Friday night tip over, Willie Croft was able to pick up a 14th place finish with the King of the West Series on Saturday night during the David Tarter Memorial.

“We really had a fast car both nights,” Croft said. “Friday night I hooked a rut and tipped over running in the Top-Five, and Saturday night we were in a good position again we just went the wrong way a little on our car and faded in the feature.”

Checking in on Friday night for the Brownell/Herseth Classic, Croft would get his night off to a quick start as he timed in second fastest in his qualifying group aboard the Holey Smokes BBQ/Rudeen/Amerikote backed No. 29 mount.

Putting his machine on the front row of his heat race, the Colfax, CA driver Would get the jump and never look back. Leading all eight laps, Croft would take the win and garner a spot in the Dash where his second-place finish put him on the front row of the 25-lap feature event.

Settling into second when the race came to life, and early restart would see Croft get shuffled back to fourth. Running in fourth for much of the race, a lap 17 restart would prove costly. Racing into turns one and two, Croft would catch a rut which resulted in his machine getting upside down, bringing his night to an end.

Making repairs Friday night and Saturday morning, Croft was back in action with the KWS for the 10th David Tarter Memorial later that night.

Timing in third fastest in qualifying time trials, Croft’s third place finish in his heat race would prove to be good enough to lock him into the Dash as well as the impending 35-lap feature event.

Finishing sixth in the Dash, Croft would take the green flag from the outside of the third row for the 35-lap Tarter Memorial feature event. Following an extensive track rework, the new surface would be rather technical for the feature event as it would also have a little character and make things that much more challenging.

Running inside the Top-10 for the first half of the race, Croft would have a couple of hiccups that resulted in him losing track position. Falling all the way back to 16th at one point, Croft would cap his night off with a 14th place finish.

“We didn’t quite make the right adjustments after the track prep and it hurt us later in the race,’ Croft said. “We had really good car speed all weekend long, and I hope we can keep that up heading to Hanford and Tulare next week.”

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

Kalib Henry Eighth at Tarter Memorial with McColloch Motorsports

PETERSEN MEDIA: Returning to Chico, CA’s Silver Dollar Speedway for the first time since winning the Fall Nationals back in October, Kalib Henry and the McColloch Motorsports team overcame mechanical gremlins on Friday night and picked up an eighth-place finish with the King of the West Series on Saturday night at the David Tarter Memorial.

“Big thanks to the McColloch Motorsports team and my Dad for the hard work trying to diagnose a fuel issue we had,” Henry said. “Luckily it ended up being a simple fix, and it helped us ensure we were prepared for Saturday’s KWS show.”

Saturday night in Chico, CA, Henry got his night kicked off by timing the McColloch’s RV Repair/Davis Truck Painting/Driven Homes Inc. backed No. 17 machine in seventh fastest in qualifying time trials with 30 cars checked into the pit area.

Lining up third in his heat race, the Mather, CA driver hooked up in an entertaining battle with Sean Becker for the race lead before ultimately setting into second. Finishing second, Henry tabulated enough qualifying and heat race points to garner a berth into the Dash where his fourth-place finish lined him up in the second row of the feature event.

When the feature event came to life, Henry would battle hard inside the Top-10 as he worked around the tricky Silver Dollar Speedway surface that was offered up after a pre-race re-work.

Near the race’s halfway point Henry would bobble and lose a few positions as he dropped all the way back to 12th. Getting his elbows up, Henry would race back into the Top-10 on the 22nd lap.

Despite his car getting free in the race’s closing laps, Henry would work his way into eighth when the checkered flag was displayed to the field.

“It was great to get back to 410ci action, and a huge thanks to my Dad for letting use the 410ci, and I look forward to more 410ci action this season in the No. 17 car,” Henry said.

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

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts: 2, Wins: 0, Top-5’s: 0, Top-10’s- 1

ON TAP: McColloch Motorsports will travel to Hanford, CA on Saturday May 14th for the Peter Murphy Classic.

 

 

POWRi Hoosier Tire Rule Update

Belleville, IL (5/2/22) Adjusting to meet the demand of the unprecedented nationwide tire shortage, Performance Open Wheel Racing Inc. and Hoosier Racing Tire have mutually agreed to open up the requirements on Right and Left Rear tires to any Hoosier tire compound or size, including all Chili Bowl Hoosier tires, for all Lucas Oil POWRi National & West Midget League events until further notice.

“We’re trying to limit the impact the current market outlook has on our race teams and series,” said Kenny Brown.

2022 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Championship Standings: Tenth | 2078 points [292 points behind championship leader, Brad Sweet]

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

JONESTOWN, Pa. (May 2, 2022) – Taming the highbanks of Bristol Motor Speedway is never an easy feat, but Brock Zearfoss and Brock Zearfoss Racing did their very best to do so over the weekend, eventually capping their visit with a pair of impressive performances including a top-ten result to open the Bristol Bash doubleheader on Friday, April 29.

Zearfoss, ace of the Moose’s LZ Bar & Grill, Heavy Equipment, Loaders & Parts Inc., C&D Rigging Inc., Klick Lewis Cars, J.P. Adamsky Trucking, Berkebile Oil Company, X-1 Race Cars, No. 3Z sprint car, opened their weekend in Bristol, Tennessee, with a ninth-place outcome on Friday, maintaining their place within the top-ten after starting in the exact same position. Although the team went on to just miss the top-ten on Saturday, their performance was nearly as impressive, ultimately improving five spots to finish 12th in the rundown. The “Jonestown Jet” is now the owner of four World of Outlaws top-ten finishes this season and is currently tenth in the championship standings.

“That was a fun weekend. The size of that place is pretty humbling, and the speeds are remarkable. To have the opportunity to race at a venue like Bristol is pretty special and we’re already excited to go back next season,” Brock Zearfoss explained, a sophomore with the Greatest Show On Dirt. “We have a big weekend ahead at Eldora, then we get to race in our own backyard. I think I speak for everyone when I say we’re excited to get back and battle at Lincoln and The Grove.”

Dietrich victorious again at Lincoln, puts on passing clinic at Williams Grove

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (May 2, 2022) – “Double-D” Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing have become almost unbeatable in the Pigeon Hills this season, and that certainly rang true again during the recent weekend with Dietrich capturing his fourth Lincoln Speedway victory since March 26, and doing so from row four.

Dietrich, who owns a personal single season win record of nine at the Abbottstown oval, rocketed forward right from the start, taking command for the first time with only ten laps recorded. Devin Borden and Freddie Rahmer did their best to dethrone Dietrich in the very late stages of the race, but their efforts were far from overpowering.

Although not victorious, Dietrich’s performance at Williams Grove Speedway one night prior was almost as impressive, eventually charging ahead from 17th to finish second, securing his place in the runner-up spot after out-dueling Mark Smith in slide fest with two to go. The Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, native was forced to start 17th after engine trouble plagued the Weikert’s Livestock, Sandoe’s Fruit Market, Pace Performance, Big Cove Whitetail Trophy Hunts, Drop Of Ink Tattoo, Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC, Self Made Racing, No. 48 during heat race competition.

“If we are going to get hot, now is the time to do it, especially with the World of Outlaws coming to Lincoln next week,” Danny Dietrich said. “This is a total team effort right now and everyone involved is doing such a great job. And a special thanks to all of the fans. They have been more than supportive and we couldn’t do any of this without them.”

ON DECK: Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing will continue their 2022 campaign with another Central Pennsylvania doubleheader on Friday and Saturday, May 6-7, returning to Williams Grove Speedway and Lincoln Speedway in respective fashion. Williams Grove Speedway’s Outlaw Tune Up will award a $6,000 payday.

SPECIAL THANKS: Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing would like to thank all of their current marketing partners including: Weikert’s Livestock, Sandoe’s Fruit Market, Pace Performance, Big Cove Whitetail Trophy Hunts, Drop Of Ink Tattoo, Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC, Self Made Racing, Racer’s New & Used Parts Warehouse, East Park Automotive Inc., RV 4 Wheel Drive & Performance Automotive Inc, Bollinger Construction, Blud Lubricants.

VINCENTOWN, N.J.

“We’re plugging away right now and things feel good. I’m excited to have some positive momentum on our side, especially with the World of Outlaws coming to town in just over a week. We have some goals in mind and I think we are more than capable of achieving them,” Whittall said, driver of the JW Motorsports, JG Kronenberger Fine Jewelry, Mid-Atlantic Transport, Pioneer Auto Body, Worldwide Bearings, Enterprise, No. 67 sprint car. “I can’t say enough about this team right now.

Hobaugh nearly an All Star winner at Sharon; Return visits to Lernerville and Sharon ahead

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

CHICORA, Pa. (May 2, 2022) – George Hobaugh and Hobaugh Motorsports turned some heads on Saturday night during their visit to Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio, joining the All Star Circuit of Champions for the annual Buckeye Cup awarding $6,500. Almost perfect during preliminary action, Hobaugh kicked-off the All Star program with a heat race victory, eventually driving on to score the evening’s dash win resulting in the pole position for the 30-lap main event.

Leading the first 28 laps, Hobaugh, aboard his Krill Recycling, Laskowski Plumbing, Ridgeview Security, Hobaugh’s Auto Parts, Colliers Custom Kitchen and Bath, No 40 sprint car, was almost untouchable, even navigating through traffic with ease during the bulk of the contest. But, to Hobaugh’s dismay, his ability to turn the car became more and more difficult, and on lap 29, the lead was lost to Myerstown’s Brent Marks. The Chicora, Pennsylvania, native was able to hang on to finish fifth, but four spots shy of the ultimate goal.

“That’s a tough one to swallow. The car was getting tighter and tighter, and it was getting tough to turn. This one may haunt us for a while, but at least we know what we are capable of doing,” Hobaugh explained, a former All Star runner-up at Sharon. “All we can do is regroup and try again this weekend. We have a long season ahead of us. There is still plenty of time to redeem ourselves.”

ON DECK: George Hobaugh and Hobaugh Motorsports will continue their 2022 campaign with return visits to Lernerville Speedway and Sharon Speedway on Friday and Saturday, May 6-7, respectively.

Thiel with up and down All Star weekend in Pennsylvania and Ohio; Aim set on Knoxville visit
 

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (May 2, 2022) – It was not the road trip that the “Big Wheel” Scotty Thiel and Team 73 had hoped for, but the lap time on unfrequented territory will ultimately prove beneficial.

Thiel, ace of the Gibbsville Cheese, Walkers Game Ear, Professional Plating Inc, Scott Thiel Builders, Stealth Cam, Muddy Outdoors, Complete Water Inc, No. 73 sprint car, joined the All Star Circuit of Champions for a two-day battle through Western Pennsylvania and northeastern Ohio during the recent weekend, visiting Lernerville Speedway and Sharon Speedway on Friday and Saturday, April 29-30, respectively.

Although his visit to Sharon for the annual Buckeye Cup ended in frustrating fashion, running out of fuel while leading a caution-filled B-Main, Thiel’s visit to Lernerville one night prior had plenty of shining moments, kicking things off with the fastest qualifying time in his respective group, which propelled the Sheboygan, Wisconsin, native to the evening’s All Star dash.

The recent Beaver Dam Raceway IRA Outlaw Sprint Series winner would go on to start eighth on the Lernerville grid, but to his misfortune, things would not improve, slowly fading on a slick and tricky surface before being scored 23rd.

“Not the weekend we wanted for our team, but unfortunately, those kinda come with the territory, but it’s up to us to find ways to improve and hopefully do things differently when we return,” Scotty Thiel explained, who dominated action at Beaver Dam Raceway one weekend ago. “Hats off to this entire team. They’ve been busting their butts all season long and I’m proud of what we’ve been doing. We have some tremendous support this season and it’s up to us to represent them at the highest level.”

The “Big Wheel” Scotty Thiel and Team 73 will continue their 2022 campaign with a visit to the famed Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday, May 7.

“Kinda disappointed to have to deal with the weather, but those things happen and there’s nothing you can do about it,” Westfall said, who is still hunting for his first feature victory of 2022. “We have a big weekend ahead at Eldora. This Ray Marshall Motorsports team is well overdue for a USAC victory, so our goal is to accomplish that on the big stage this weekend.”

2022 Season Opener at Double X Speedway

On Saturday morning Double X Speedway owners Kyle and Carol Wirts had a decision to make which has become all too familiar at race tracks this spring. With water from the weeks rainfall covering half of the infield, they made the choice to open the 2022 season at Double X on Sunday May 1 as advertised. With the help of family, friends and racers alike they began pumping water out of the infield and making everything ready to greet fans and race teams alike. As Kyle Wirts said at 5 pm Sunday when asked about the work required to get things ready, he replied "Yeah, I own a race track but we all like to watch racing too."

After the initial warm up laps were run it was decided that a little more water was needed to make the track racier and to help settle the new clay put down over the winter. Kyle Wirts' efforts provided a much improved track surface. A huge thank you to the fans and race teams for your patience as we worked through the track issues.

The Pure Stock cars were first on the card for the evening. Preston McDowell took the lead at the outset and held the point for seven laps of the heat race. Third starting Darn Porter was trying low and high to pass the leader and coming out of turn 4 with the white flag waving he was able to pass for the lead and claim the checkered flag. Preston McDowell finished second, Shane Healea crossed the line in third, Justin McDowell was fourth and Russell Beach claimed fifth.

The 12 lap Pure Stock feature was led to the green by Darin Porter and Preston McDowell. At the outset Darin Porter edged ahead of McDowell into turn one claiming the point. McDowell and Shane Healea would keep pressure on the leader with McDowell pulling alongside on the white flag lap. The lead duo raced side by side down the backstretch. Porter was able to use the top shelf in turn 4 to edge McDowell by less than a car length to take the win. Preston McDowell finished a strong second, Shane Healea scored third, Russell Beach was fourth and Justin McDowell completed the running order. Shannon Sullivan was unable to start the event.

The fan favorite Super Stocks were the second class in competition Sunday evening. Veteran Joe Miller claimed victory in heat race number one over Brandon Dunham, Mark Davis, Eddie Keeran and Tyler Crocker . Heat race number two was won in dominating fashion by Derek Henson. Derek Wiss was second with Dale Berry third, Steve Beach fourth and Jody Romig fifth. The feature event saw Miller and Henson on the front row. Henson continued where he left off in the heat race by leading green to checkered. Derek Wiss had an impressive outing finishing second, Joe Miller finished a solid third, veteran Dale Berry comes home fourth and Mark Davis would complete the top five. Eddie Keeran finished sixth, Jody Romig was seventh, Steve Beach was eighth, Tyler Crocker ninth and Brandon Dunham tenth.

The Winged Sprint Car division had seventeen cars signed in for the evening. Three heat races were contested to set the feature lineup. Heat one saw Jack Wagner claim the victory over brother and teammate Samuel with a last lap pass. Slater Helt ran third. Minnesota's Ryan Bowers was fourth, Garret Hulsey took the checkered in fifth and Tony Crank finished sixth. Heat two was claimed by Tyler Blank over Riley Goodno, Jarmin Dalitz, Mackenzie Borchers, Russell Potter and Ben Brown. The third and final heat was won by Taylor Walton. Timmy Smith finished a strong second, Tyler Elliott finishes third, Quinton Benson in fourth and Billy Butler in fifth.

The 25 lap feature saw Jack Wagner take the point and lead the first fifteen laps, only slowed by a lap one red flag involving Billy Butler, Ben Brown and Timmy Smith. All drivers were okay but all retired to the pit area with damage. As Wagner led, Tyler Blank and Taylor Walton were keeping the pressure on the leader. Encountering lapped traffic on lap fifteen, Blank was able to overtake Wagner to take the lead. Four laps later Walton moved into the number two spot. Following a lap 20 caution, Walton made a try at the leader, but Blank appeared to grab another gear and open up a five car length lead which he maintained until the checker. Following Blank and Walton were Jack Wagner on third, Tyler Elliott with a solid fourth and Ryan Bowers in fifth. Quinton Benson led the second five in sixth, Samuel Wagner in seventh, Riley Goodno in eighth, Slater Helt was ninth and Garrett Hulsey finished tenth. Mackenzie Borchers finished eleventh, Jarmin Dalitz twelfth, Russell Potter thirteenth, Tony Crank fourteenth, Ben Brown credited with fifteenth, Timmy Smith sixteenth and Billy Butler completed the seventeen car field.

Another Aus Title Top 10 for Bricknell

Although he finished last night’s Australian Sprintcar Championship at Brisbane’s Archerfield Speedway with the fourth top-10 finish of his career in the event, it certainly wasn’t an easy weekend for Jamie Bricknell and the team.

Steering the Tasmanian-based Clasener Motorsport Tas # 55 Hyperdrive Kart Racing / Extreme Sprintcars supported Cool, Bricknell had to fight tooth and nail throughout the weekend and all of his hard work paid off when he brought home a sixth-place finish in the Australian Championship deciding feature race.

After a challenging qualifying run, where he missed the heat race invert earlier in the weekend during time trials and had to start from the back of the field in all of his heat races, Bricknell and his team, who hadn’t raced in two months leading up to the Australian Championship weekend, had their backs to the wall, but they pressed on.

Following the two tough nights of qualifying, Bricknell earned his spot in last night’s B main out of position 10. In the B main, he put together an impressive drive throughout the last-chance qualifying event and went on to move into the final transfer spot – fourth – into the Australian Championship decider in the closing stages and he stayed there through to the finish.

In the Australian Championship deciding feature race, the goal for Bricknell and the team was to mainly stay out of harm’s way and bring home a finish. Throughout the 40-lap event, Bricknell drove a solid race to work his way through the field and bring home a sixth-place finish.

For Bricknell, this was his fourth top-10 Australian Sprintcar Championship finish, adding to his 2020 event ninth-place finish with the Clasener Motorsport team at Latrobe Speedway in his home state, which was a very similar weekend to the one just gone after they had back then also been forced to qualify for the feature race via the B main, a fifth place-finish in the 2011 event at Warrnambool’s Premier Speedway (Vic) driving the family-owned car, and a sixth-place finish aboard the family-owned car again in the 2012 event at Adelaide’s Speedway City (SA).

“It certainly was a challenging Australian Championship weekend but I’m very proud of the whole team, as we dug deep and managed to come away with another top-10 finish,” expressed the 32-year-old Bricknell from Launceston, Tasmania.

“I managed to scrap through into the feature race out of the B main, as we had tough run during the qualifying events, so to come from the back of the field in the feature race and bring home the finish that we did was something that well and truly exceeded all of our expectations.”

The Australian Championship weekend caps the 2021-22 season campaign for Bricknell and the Clasener Motorsport team, which saw them run a limited campaign in their home state, but they managed to capture the Tasmanian Title win over the Christmas-New Year period.

Looking ahead to the 2022-23 season, the plans for Bricknell and the Clasener Motorsport team are to try and compete the full season in their home state, along with hopefully contesting various major events on the mainland, such as the Grand Annual Classic and the Easter Trail.

A special thanks must go to Rick Dryden for all of his hospitality shown towards Bricknell and the Clasener Motorsport team throughout the Australian Championship weekend.

Clasener Motorsport would like to thank their 2021-22 season supporters:

• Hyperdrive Kart Racing • Extreme Sprintcars • Talon Body Works • Handmade Metal & Performance • Cowen’s Cleaning • Precision Autos Launceston

Special Thanks: Ash Cleary (crew chief) and the team.

Making their first feature start of the season, Giles, aboard the Albaugh LLC/Iowa Barnstormers No. 2KS 410 sprint car, started 18th and finished 16th, kicking off the evening with the 19th-fastest time overall in qualifying time trials.

The team finished sixth in their respective heat race to transfer directly into the 20-lap main event.

The Sprint Car Capital of the World managed to conduct a partial program the weekend before, but weather interfered before feature competition could be completed; the rained-out main event will be made up at a later date.

“It feels good to finally get a feature under our belts. We have some things to work on, but we’ll build some rhythm soon enough,” Troy Renfro explained, owner of the TKS Motorsports entry. “We have so many people to thank, especially our friends at Albaugh LLC and the Iowa Barnstormers. They are the real reason we are able to go out and do this.”

ON DECK: Ryan Giles and TKS Motorsports will continue their 2022 campaign with another round of action at the famed Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday, May 7.

Spencer Bayston and CJB Motorsports score $25,000 payday in Bristol Bash finale; Eldora Speedway on deck

2022 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Championship Standings: Sixth | 2230 points [140 points behind championship leader, Brad Sweet]

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

CARLISLE, Pa. (May 2, 2022) - For the first time in 2022, and for the first time as a full-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series competitor, Lebanon, Indiana’s Spencer Bayston is a Series winner, doing so at the Last Great Colosseum - Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, Tennessee - on Saturday, April 30. The $25,000 victory, the largest of Bayston’s career, was accomplished in exciting, yet fantastic fashion, as the World of Outlaws Rookie of the Year contender was forced to outduel defending NASCAR Cup Series champion, Kyle Larson, in a two-lap shootout. Suffice it to say, Bayston came out on top, officially leading every lap of the Bristol Bash finale to lock down a third-career World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory.

Bayston secured his place in Bristol Motor Speedway victory lane with a bold move as the white flag waved, barely squeezing between Larson’s No. 57 and the outside retaining wall during a slider attempt by the defending NASCAR champion.

“This has been a long time coming,” Bayston said in Bristol Motor Speedway victory lane. “We’ve been so damn fast every night. Barry Jackson is doing a phenomenal job. I feel more comfortable in this CJB #5 than I have in my whole career in any other race car. This is a testament to the equipment that Chad Clemens provides and what Barry Jackson, Scott [Vogelsong], and Brendan [Collum] do with it. Winning at Bristol Motor Speedway is something I’ll never forget.

“I’ve got all the respect in the world for Kyle [Larson],” Bayston said with his Bristol Bash gladiator sword in hand. “He didn’t need to give me that little lane, but when I saw it open I was fully committed to sending it around the outside. It was quite unnerving, but we’re standing in victory lane and that’s all that matters. It’s a high-speed, high-risk moment, but we came out with a high reward.”

Just one night prior in the Bristol Bash opener, Bayston, aboard the CJB Motorsports, Signing Day Sports, JRC Transportation, Nyce Crete and Landis, Ecynbro Trucking, C&S Lawn and Landscape, Kistler Engines, The Dunn Group, Highlands’ Power Sports, High Performance Lubricants, FK Rod Ends, Allstar Performance, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, Walker Filtration, No. 5 sprint car, finished eighth after starting fifth, kicking off the program with a runner-up performance during heat race competition to lock into the evening’s dash.

With all results considered, Bayston, the leading Rookie of the Year candidate, is now sixth in the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series championship standings, now 140-points back of defending Series champion, Brad Sweet.

ON DECK:
Spencer Bayston and CJB Motorsports will continue their 2022 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series campaign with a doubleheader at the World’s Greatest Dirt Track - Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio, on Friday and Saturday, May 6-7.

Brian Brown earns historic victory at Knoxville Raceway; Eldora Speedway plans in the works

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. (May 2, 2022) - “Blackjack” Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing were basically flawless on Saturday night at the famed Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, not only securing their first sprint car feature victory of the season, but doing so in historic fashion, as Grain Valley, Missouri’s Brian Brown is now officially a 57-time 410 sprint car winner at the Sprint Car Capital of the World, tied with the legendary Steve Kinser on the track’s all-time win list.

“It was a great night for our team. Danny, Tye, Justin, Dad, and Grandpa put the hours in the shop this week and it showed. This was a brand new Maxim and it worked flawlessly,” Brian Brown expressed. “I knew starting third we would have a good shot to win. But, I also knew the guys around us were going to be tough. We were able to get into second quick then slide Matt for the lead on a restart. We were able to hit our marks the rest of the race to win. I’m proud of our whole team and all of our partners, and I was especially proud to get Andy's Frozen Custard into Victory Lane with BBR for the first time.”

Welding & Machine, Waldinger, Smiley’s Racing Products, No. 21 sprint car, started third on the feature grid and wasted little time working his way to the front, eventually utilizing an early race restart to power by race leader, Matt Juhl, to take command on lap five; Brown never looked back.

Blackjack kicked off the evening program with the seventh-fastest qualifying time, earning a heat race victory shortly thereafter.

Kaleb Montgomery Records Placerville Speedway Top-10

PETERSEN MEDIA- Saturday, Kaleb Montgomery and the F&F Racing team had a solid run at Placerville Speedway that saw them move into second in the early season point standings by way of a seventh-place finish.

“We have been good at Placerville Speedway all year long, and Saturday was no different,” Montgomery said. “Unfortunately, we had some brake issues develop before the feature event and it made the 25-lapper a bit tricky. Luckily the track wasn’t as slick as it typically is with all the rain that has accumulated and we were able to make the best of it.”

Timing the Bushey Financial Services/C&H Motor Parts/Lucas Oil backed No. x1 machine in fourth fastest in qualifying time trials, the Templeton, CA driver would finish second in his heat race on a very hooked up and fast racing surface.

Using his strong qualifying effort to his favor, Montgomery would qualify for the nightly redraw where the six-pill placed him in the third row for the 25-lap finale.

In a late April rarity, the track would continue to stay in very good shape and retain a lot of moisture that created a very fast surface with some exciting action. Though battling brake issues, Montgomery was able to mix it up inside the Top-10.

Following a lap 5 caution, the next 20-laps would rip off without interruption which saw Montgomery spend much the race battling through traffic.

Able to jump into fifth for much of the race, the brake issues would hinder him a little as he maneuvered through slower cars while battling with the likes of Ryan Robinson and Joey Ancona.

Slipping back to sixth with just five laps left he in the race, Montgomery would go on to close his night out with a seventh-place finish.

“It was a little unfortunate to have an issue develop right before the feature, but we did all we could and made the best of it,” Montgomery said. “The F&F guys really have a good package at Placerville, and if we keep this speed, and the comfort of the car it should be a really fun Summer for us.”

F&F Racing would like to thank Bushey Financial Services, C&H Motor Parts, Lucas Oil, Geico Local Office, Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes, Pacific Highway Rentals, PitStopUSA, FVP, CRV Carbon Solutions, American River Overhead Door, All Pro Heads, Engler, and Don Ott Racing Engines for their support.

ON TAP: F&F Racing will be back in action Saturday night at Placerville Speedway.

Justyn Cox Eighth at Placerville Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA: After a tumultuous outing at Merced Speedway two weeks ago, Justyn Cox and company were back at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night looking for a bit of redemption after a packed right-rear knocked them out of contention during their last visit to the Speedway.

“We really hit on something last time out at Placerville Speedway, and we came into Saturday night with a lot of confidence,” Cox said. “We got off to a really good start in time trials, but then our pill draw kind of hurt us with how good the track stayed all night.”

Setting the early standard in Saturday’s qualifying time trials at Placerville Speedway with him being the first car out, Cox would ultimately end up timing the Berco Redwood/Berry Lumber/MDW entry in second fastest overall.

From the second row of his heat race, Cox would simply need to finish inside the Top-Five to ensure himself a berth in the nightly redraw. On the lightning-fast racing surface, Cox would settle into fourth, where he would finish, and do what he needed to set himself up for the 25-lap feature event.

Having some bad luck in the redraw, Cox would end up with the vaunted ‘eight’, which put him in the fourth row on a track that still was very fast which would ultimately make passing tougher than usual.

Making some changes to his entry after the heat and prior to the feature, Cox felt a little off and didn’t have the drive he had hoped to make up ground. With the race essentially going nonstop aside from a yellow in the early goings, the Clarksburg, CA native turned Citrus Heights, CA resident would keep his car inside the Top-10.

Unable to work his way forward, Cox capped the night off with an eighth-place finish.

“We have been trying a lot of things on our car to start the year, and nothing really seems to be making us better, so I think we are going to make some bigger changes to our program and see what we can figure out,” Cox said. “Our results haven’t been great, but it hasn’t been for a lack of effort.”

The Cox-Berco Racing team would like to thank Berco Redwood, Berry Lumber, Michael David Winery, MDW Sports, Stroppini Enterprises, Cranked Naturals, Trex, Master Metal Products, Adrian Blanco Jewelry, PM Truck Repair, Justice Brothers, K&N, Konnected, A.R.T., Sacramento Theatrical Lighting, College Cyclery, Arai, Racing Optics, All American Powder Coating, VSR, , Tim’s Hot Rod Shop, Shell Shock, Don Ott Racing Engines, and Richmond Engines for their continued support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-8, Wins-0, Top 5’s-1, Top 10’s-4

ON TAP: At this time, Cox is unsure of his next event.

Sixth Place Finish Highlights Mitchell Faccinto’s Double Header Weekend in Chico, CA

PETERSEN MEDIA- This past weekend saw Mitchell Faccinto and Tarlton Motorsports return to 410ci action in Chico, CA as Friday night saw the team finish sixth in an unsanctioned event before they ran 12th on Saturday night in KWS action.

“Both nights we didn’t time in very well, and with that strong of a field on hand it is super hard to get out of any hole you put yourself into,” Faccinto said. “We survived, and picked up a couple of decent finishes, and I am looking forward to Hanford and Tulare in two weeks.”

Friday night’s un-sanctioned event saw Silver Dollar Speedway utilize a modified All Star format that saw teams qualify and heat race in a their group, but lined heats up with no inversion. Timing the Tarlton and Son Inc./EZ Haul/Executive Auto Sales backed No. 21 in fifth fastest in his group.

Lining up fifth in his heat race, the Hanford, CA driver would tally a fifth-place finish which was good enough to lock him into the 25-lap feature event.

Taking the green flag from the 13th starting position, Faccinto would get the Drew Warner prepared mount moving forward in the feature event. Able to race into the Top-10, Faccinto flirted with a Top-5 as he would cap Friday’s Brownell/Herseth Memorial off with a sixth-place finish.

Saturday night saw KWS action take center stage for the 10th Annual David Tarter Memorial.

With 30 cars on hand, Faccinto would time in 17th fastest in time trials, which just missed the heat race inversion and lined him up in the third row of his heat race.

On a slick surface in heat race competition, Faccinto was able to advance into the fourth position which would safely transfer him into the 35-lap feature event.

Taking the green flag from the 17th starting position on an old school Silver Dollar Speedway surface, Faccinto would have his elbows up as he worked his way towards the Top-10.

Working his way into 11th in just three laps, Faccinto would crack the Top-10 on lap 13.

Slipping back to 11th on the 23rd lap, Faccinto would race hard to get the lost position back but a misstep on the 30th lap saw him fall back to 13th.

In the final four laps, Faccinto would fight hard to get back into 12th where he would ultimately finish.

“Big thanks to my guys for their hard work, and the Tarlton family for providing us with the tools we need to be competitive,” Faccinto said. “We will take this weekend off, before a big weekend ‘at home’ on May 13th and 14th.”

Tarlton Motorsports would like to thank Tarlton and Son Inc., EZ Haul, Executive Auto Sales, Pabco Gypsum, Bandy and Associates, FK Shocks, FK Rod Ends, System 1 Ignition, Vortex Wings, and BG Lubricants for their support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races: 11, Wins: 1, Top 5’s: 3, Top 10’s: 5.

ON TAP: Mitchell Faccinto will return to action on May 13th and 14th in Tulare, CA and Hanford, CA for the Peter Murphy Classic.

Sean Becker Picks Up Pair of Top-Five Finishes with Antaya Motorsports

PETERSEN MEDIA- Getting the call top run the Antaya Motorsports No. 16A over this past weekend in Chico, CA, Sean Becker would have a great weekend as he finished fifth on Friday night during the Brownell/Herseth Memorial and backed it up with a fourth place effort on Friday night with the King of the West Series.

“I really want to thank Larry Antaya and Colby Copeland for thinking of me and giving me the call to run the No. 16A over the weekend,” Sean Becker said. “I wish I could have been better early in the night and set us up in both features, but we were able to rebound really well.”

Taking the seat of the Antaya’s Fire Protection Services backed No. 16A on Friday night, Becker would get timed in sixth fastest in his qualifying group which lined him sixth in the night’s first heat race.

Getting a great start in his heat, Becker would make up a ton of ground as he jumped into third and went on to finish there. Improving his feature event starting position with each car he was able to pass, Becker would roll off the starting grid from the ninth position.

When the feature event came to life, Becker slowly began his pursuit to the front in typical ‘Shark’ fashion. Getting into seventh by the halfway point, Becker would race into fifth on the 15th lap. Continuing to pounce on the competition, Becker would take over the third spot on lap 22 but would get shuffled back while navigating through traffic on the final lap of the race as he took the checkered flag with a fifth place finish.

Back in action on Saturday night with the KWS for the David Tarter Memorial, Becker would get timed in 15th fastest, which would put him on the front row of his heat race as he just made the heat race inversion.

Racing to the heat race win, Becker would not have enough points to garner berth into the six-car Dash but would was safely in the 35-lap feature event as he took the green flag from the 13th starting spot.

Jumping into 10th on the race’s opening lap, Becker would make some big moves early as he took over the fifth position on the seventh circuit.

Racing into fourth on the ninth lap, Becker would spend a good chunk of the race battling for a spot on the podium.

Getting into third on the 23rd lap, Becker would hold down the final podium spot for two laps before Dominic Scelzi scooted past him an dropped him back to foruth.

Unable to get back by Scelzi, Becker would cap off his weekend with his second consecutive Top-Five has he finished fourth.

“Not getting timed in well really put us tough starting spots in both features and that was on me,” Becker added. ‘This car was so fast both nights and I wish I could have closed both nights out a little better for them, but it was a lot of fun to run with this team.”

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-7, Wins-0, Top 5’s- 3, Top-10’s- 4

ON TAP: Becker will return to action in two weeks as he will pilot a Bjork Motorsports car in Hanford and Tulare May 13th and 14th.

Amantea Garners Top Fives at Delaware International Speedway and Bridgeport Motorsports Park

Inside Line Promotions - SWEDESBORO, N.J. (May 2, 2022) - Joey Amantea has already surpassed his total number of top fives last season during Rapid Tire USAC East Coast Sprint Cars Series competition in 2022 thanks to two more top fives last weekend.

Amantea placed third on Friday at Delaware International Speedway in Delmar, Del., and fourth on Saturday at Bridgeport Motorsports Park, giving him four top fives in seven starts this year.

The stout weekend began on Friday when Amantea invaded Delaware International Speedway for the first time this season. He advanced from fourth to third place in both a heat race and the A Main.

"Delaware had a tough track surface," he said. "It was so rough. We had speed there in the feature and were able to hold onto third to get another podium to start the season. Honestly, I couldn't complain about it even if I wanted."

Amantea continued his momentum at Bridgeport Motorsports Park on Saturday, finishing third in a heat race and fourth in the feature.

"We knew going into the day we'd have speed," he said. "We've always been fast there. We messed up a little in the heat race, over-anticipating the track, so we started fourth in the feature. We got to the lead on Lap 2 and led until Lap 7 or Lap 8. Those were our first laps led with the series since last June and those laps I started on the pole so I don't know how much they count.

"I was able to run the top. Guys dove to the bottom or left a hole open. I ended up throwing a slider going into one. The leader crossed me over and then I threw another slider going into turn three. I held them off for a little bit. They found a little more moisture than I did. Once we all filed out, us top four cars were all within a car length of each other. We were all really fast. I was super stoked about that. We've gone from being a second slower than those guys to just a tenth. We're missing just that little bit."

This weekend is dormant for the sprint car so Amantea is aiming to make his micro sprint season debut on Sunday at Action Track USA in Kutztown, Pa.

"We have a brand new car and a brand new motor we're bringing," he said. "We're trying a new motor package this year so I'm curious to see how it runs. I'm really excited to break out the micro sprint. We haven't got the opportunity to do it this year so hopefully we can start out with a strong run."

QUICK RESULTS -

April 29 - Delaware International Speedway in Delmar, Del. - Heat race: 3 (4); Feature: 3 (4).

April 30 - Bridgeport Motorsports Park in Swedesboro, N.J. - Heat race: 3 (3); Feature: 4 (4).

Kaleb Johnson Nets Podium in 360 Division and Gains 410 Experience During Knoxville Raceway Season Opener

Inside Line Promotions - KNOXVILLE, Iowa (May 2, 2022) - Kaleb Johnson made the most of his night last Saturday during the season opener at Knoxville Raceway, where he competed in both the 360ci and 410ci winged sprint car divisions.

Johnson, who will run full time in the 360 class at Knoxville Raceway this season, started the year on the right note by qualifying seventh quickest. He advanced from fourth to third place in a heat race and lined up on the outside of the third row in the A Main.

"We tried a little different setup," he said. "In the heat race I was battling being too free. I wasn't too happy with the car, but sometimes you'll get that trying new stuff. Then in the feature I was able to work the bottom on a couple of restarts to get by a couple of people. I feel we had a fifth or sixth-place car. I definitely didn't have anything for the top two, but I was pleased with a third-place finish."

The third-place outing was Johnson's best run of the season. He also tied a career-best 410 result with a 19th-place showing.

"Our main goal was to make the A Main in the 410," he said. "I don't have many laps in a 410 and it was our first time at Knoxville in it. It went pretty well. I drew the No. 75 for the 360 and the No. 2 for the 410. Instead of going out real early in qualifying and being in a rush I told them I'd go out last in the 410. We didn't qualify the greatest, but I wasn't expecting to. I was able to stay where I started in the heat race and the B Main."

Johnson qualified 21st quickest. He finished where he lined up in both a heat race - seventh - and the B Main - second. That advanced him into the feature, which was cut short for Johnson.

"I was getting a lot of track time and I think it worked out well," he said. "I made it up to about 13th at one point. I was mainly just running the bottom. I didn't want to risk tearing anything up ripping the top on our first night out with it. Unfortunately, we had the tie-rod fall off with about five laps to go and we pulled into the pits."

Johnson will venture to Knoxville Raceway this Saturday before tackling the Cressman Sanitation Shootout at Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., on Sunday.

QUICK RESULTS -

April 30 - Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa (410 sprint car) - Qualifying: 21; Heat race: 7 (7); B Main: 2 (2); Feature: 19 (22).

The Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Series recently finished another successful

when the racing is first rate that isn’t an easy thing to do.

cars since 2016/17.
 8 different feature winners

 14 different drivers on the podium
 The All Star Challenge had its highest car count with 42 cars as well as an increase in
the purse making it $15000 to win and a record payout of just on $40K. South
Australian Brendan Quinn won the money. Quinn was a last minute entry after
competing in Qld the weekend prior and with a forecast of bad weather decided to
return home, find a 360 and go for it. What a fairy-tale ending for him.
 Flocon Mildura Moonshine Masters was won by Mark Caruso. Based on the 3 A
Mains held at Mildura Caruso picked up an additional $3K for his effort. Mark beat
his brother Steve by 1 point for bragging rights around the shed.
 Paul Solomon joined the 100 club – so now both Paul & Locky have competed at 100
series rounds.

 More than 6,500ks, 300 Frisbees handed out, bags and bags of giveaways for the

tissues.
“To try and sum it up it isn’t easy to do but we do know that 360’s are very strong, we had
incredible racing at every show, we made more memories and we made more friends. Now
we have to start the hard work on preparing for next season.” Promoter Searle says

 

Williamson Posts Fifth-Place Result on Opening Night at Knoxville Raceway

Inside Line Promotions - KNOXVILLE, Iowa (May 2, 2022) - Garet Williamson recorded a top-five result last Saturday during the Knoxville Raceway season opener.

It marked the sixth top five - in the fourth different state - of the season for the Bryant Paver Motorsports driver.

"It was a really smooth night and a really good learning night," he said. "For being our first time there this year it was really good. After having a good run at the 360 Knoxville Nationals last summer it was great to go back and continue our momentum."

Williamson timed in eighth quickest before he advanced from fourth to second place in a heat race. The feature inversion lined him up on the inside of the third row for the A Main.

"We qualified well and passed cars in the heat race," he said. "We were good in the feature and contending for spots. If a couple of things went different I think we would have been on the podium. I ran fourth for a little and went to slide Chase (Randall) for third and we got passed. Three of us were all right there at the finish line battling for a podium."

Williamson aims to return to Knoxville Raceway this Saturday before making his debut at Huste's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., on Sunday during the Cressman Sanitation Shootout.

"I'm really excited to see Huset's," he said. "A lot of people have told me how fun it is. I've seen a lot of races of the track on video and it looks like it's right up my alley."

Big Game Motorsports Earns Two Top Fives During World of Outlaws Bristol Bash

Inside Line Promotions - BRISTOL, Tenn. (May 2, 2022) - David Gravel posted back-to-back fifth-place finishes last weekend during the World of Outlaws Bristol Bash.

Both nights played out similarly for the Big Game Motorsports driver as Bristol Motor Speedway put down dirt to host the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series for the second straight year. Gravel is the only competitor to record a top-five result during all four features.

"The track was so fast and you're running wide open around there," he said. "If the track had less grip it'd been better, but it was the way it was. It wasn't in our cards this past weekend."

Gravel qualified fourth quickest on Friday and sixth quickest on Saturday. He placed second in a heat race each night to advance into the dash. Gravel lost a spot in each dash, placing sixth on Friday and fifth on Saturday.

"There wasn't too much moving around," he said. "We didn't get the dash draws we needed. I thought on Saturday we had a good chance to have a good run as we started fourth in the dash. I wasn't able to take advantage. I had a bad start in turns one and two and fell back to fifth."

Gravel gained a spot in the feature on Friday and he maintained fifth throughout Saturday's main event. The results give him 11 top fives in 17 starts this season.

"I thought it was a solid weekend," he said. "We were in the mix all weekend. You want to win, especially when there's more money on the line, but running in the top five both nights was what was in our cards."

Next up for the team is a doubleheader at Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, this Friday and Saturday. Gravel produced two podiums, three top fives and five top 10s in seven World of Outlaws races at the track last year.

"I'm looking forward to getting back to Eldora," he said. "I'm excited to go to tracks we go to multiple times a year and see where we stack up."

QUICK RESULTS -

April 29 - Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, Tenn. - Qualifying: 4; Heat race: 2 (2); Dash: 6 (5); Feature: 5 (6).

Contact: Paul Harkenrider
 

(Woodhull, NY) In its 20th season as one of the Northeast's most popular touring series, the A-Verdi Storage Containers Patriot Sprint Tour will begin on the High Banks of the Woodhull Raceway.

By way of secured sponsorship, each race will pay a minimum of $3,000 to win and $300 to start. In addition, the 20th Season Champion will take home a lucrative $5,000 with 2nd thru 5th being $3,500, $2,500, $2,000, & $1,500 in the championship standings. ALL Patriot Sprint Tour competitors completing all point events in 2022 will receive a minimum $1,000 payout in the point fund for their efforts.

Less is more will be the tagline for this season! There are currently only 11 races on the 2022 schedule compared to seasons past when there were 25 plus point races, but the championship purse remains the same. The first event was slated to be at Outlaw Speedway, but due to not being able to supply tires to all teams, PST postponed the event. PST Management is working with Outlaw Speedway officials on a makeup date.

This will be the 25th time in program history that the Patriots will be visiting the tight bull ring at Woodhull. The tour was able to return in 2021 on one occasion, and it was Chuck Hebing getting by Davie Franek on lap 20 to secure his ninth career victory at the facility, which is the most by any driver.

The Cobra, Chuck Hebing will lead a field of tough competitors who have begun to find success at Woodhull. This includes confirmed Platinum Patriot competitors, reigning champion, Jordan Thomas, Paulie Colagiovanni, Davie Franek, Jared Zimbardi, Brett Wright, Kyle Drum, Dave Axton, Denny Peebles, Steve Glover, Joe Trenca, Jonathan Preston along with Rookie contender, Jordan Hutton.

It will also be a welcome back race for several of our Canadian teams who have been unable to race stateside due to closed borders during the Covid-19 pandemic. Several PA teams have expressed interest in competing on the high banks of Woodhull Raceway for this Patriot Sprint Tour event as well.

Standard Patriot format applies with an open draw for heats, a Bonnell's Rod Shop four laps of fame dash, and a 25 lap A-Main where passing points will determine the top eight for the redraw and the six dash starters.

The first of eleven races of the 20th edition of the Patriot Sprint Tour begins May 7 at the Woodhull Raceway. Please be sure to tune in to PatriotSprintTour.com and follow along with Patriot Sprint Tour social media on Facebook and Twitter, and Instagram by following @PatriotSprints.

WILLIAMS GETS IMPROBABLE TOP 10 FINISH IN MOHAVE VALLEY USAC/CRA RACE

(Hesperia, CA, April 28, 2022) If a sprint car driver told you that he finished in the top 10 in the main event after having another car flip and land on top of him and having to go to the back three times during the race, you probably would roll your eyes and walk away. However, that is exactly what happened to Trent Williams on his way to a ninth-place finish in the first USAC/CRA Series race at the Mohave Valley Raceway last Saturday night.

Williams came into the night 16th in points in the series despite missing the first three races of the season. After qualifying 17th fastest of 27 cars on hand with a lap of 15.012, he finished second in his 10-lap heat to earn a direct transfer into the main event.

While the second-place finish in the heat put him straight into the main, his qualifying time meant that he would start on the outside of row eight. Disaster nearly struck in turn two on the first lap. Just in front of him, a car on the inside slowed and drifted up from the pole. That left the car in front of Williams with nowhere to go and he climbed the slower car’s right rear tire and began flipping. Williams tried to drive around the flipping car, but it landed on top of him, rolled off, and brought out a red flag.

Fortunately, no drivers were injured, and Williams’ car was not damaged enabling him to restart in 14th when the green flag brought the field back to life again. “T-Dub” worked his way up to 12th but a minor tangle with another car on lap five brought out a yellow flag. Williams had to go to the back where he soon discovered that his right front had a slow leak from the mix-up.

Once the race restarted, Williams, who lives in Apple Valley, California, put on a show. He sliced and diced his way by car after car and pushed his plain wrap black #52V as far forward as eighth! But the leaking right front finally took its toll on lap 15 when Williams spun bringing out the yellow flag. For the second time in the race, he had to go to the rear for the restart.

Williams did not have a chance to change the tire during the yellow flag period as they were not going to have enough time to get it done before the field went green again. So, he soldiered on. Once again, he was passing some cars from the back when the yellow came on for a car that spun in turn two. While officials were getting that car turned around on the yellow, another driver stopped in turn three. That gave Williams time to duck in the pits where his father Ron, brother Jake, his girlfriend Seattle, and crew member Russell went to work and got the flat tire changed. His car was pushed off and for the third time, he restarted at the back.

His early performances from the back had many fans looking on to see if he was going to put on a show again. Needless to say, the high desert-based driver did not disappoint. He raced back to 14th before another yellow slowed the pace with three laps to go. After the final restart, Williams put it all on the line and passed five cars in one lap! Seconds later he brought the #52 under the checkered flag in ninth.

In four starts in the USAC/CRA Series this year, Williams has finished ninth each time. To make that stat a little crazier, going back to his last two races of 2021, he has now finished in ninth place six times in a row.

Williams gets right back at it this Saturday, April 30th, at Perris Auto Speedway. Spectator gates will open at 5:00 p.m. with racing getting underway at 7:00. Adult tickets are $30.00. For seniors 65 and over it is $25.00. Tickets for kids 6 to 12 are only $5.00. Children 5 and under are admitted free. The fairgrounds charges $10.00 for parking. There will be plenty of tickets available for everyone at the ticket window on Saturday. This race will not sell out. For those who wish to purchase tickets in advance, they are available 24 hours a day online at https://www.tix.com/ticket-sales/pas/7 or by calling 1-800-595-4849.

Perris Auto Speedway is located on the freeway close Lake Perris Fairgrounds at 18700 Lake Perris Drive in the City of Perris (92571). The track website is http://www.perrisautospeedway.com/ and the office phone number is (951) 940-0134.

After Saturday’s race at Perris, Williams plans to follow the USAC/CRA Series for a race at Bakersfield on May 14th before a return to Perris for the “Salute to Indy” on May 28th.

Williams would like to thank marketing partners Victory Boys Performance, Sorrento Homes, and JasonR.Photos for making it possible to race his Maxim Chassis/Shaver Engines #52V during the 2022 season. He also wants to send a special thanks to Russell and Jean Martin for the use of their truck and trailer to get the #52V to the track last week.

Brisbane Confirmed For 2023 Australian Wingless Title

The event has been scheduled to take place between Thursday April 27 and Sunday April 30, 2023, with a rainout date of Monday May 1st if required.

The 2023 Championship will begin with an official practice night on April 27 with on track action between 5 and 8 pm before a day of Scrutineering at the venue followed by an entertaining night for all involved at the annual Calcutta at a venue to be confirmed on Friday April 28.

Saturday and Sunday night (April 29 & 30) will see the title contested with three rounds of heats and a Preliminary A-Main on the opening night before a further round of heats and the mains, with the Champion to be decided over a minimum 35 laps of the Archerfield Speedway.

LAST WEEK MOHAVE VALLEY – THIS WEEK PERRIS FOR FLOWDYNAMICS DRIVERS

(Ontario, CA, April 27, 2022) The Flowdynamics Sprint Car team drivers Matt McCarthy and Logan Williams get right back into action this Saturday night, April 30th, when the USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series returns to its home track, Perris Auto Speedway. It is a fast turnaround for the drivers after competing in Arizona at the Mohave Valley Raceway last Saturday night.

Getting his initial look at the Mohave Valley track that is located just a few miles east of the Colorado River and 20 minutes from downtown Laughlin, McCarthy laid down another great qualifying lap when he timed in third quickest at 14.318. It was the Riverside, California resident's second top five qualifying result in the last four races. Williams, who lives in Yorba Linda, California, timed in 14th fastest at 15.012.

The Flowdynamics drivers were paired against each other in the third, 10-lap heat race. Williams was on the outside of the front row for the start. Being that he was fast qualifier in the group, McCarthy was coming from the outside of row three. Williams jumped into the initial lead, but the race saw a yellow flag when McCarthy stopped on lap three. He rejoined at the back. Williams led the first two circuits, before relinquishing the top spot and staying in second for the duration.

After restarting at the back of the heat, McCarthy managed to claw his way back to 5th. However, that was one spot shy of a transfer straight into the main event. He had to go to the B Main, where he started on the pole. From there, he dominated the 12 lapper and won by a full straightaway.

With one of the largest crowds in the history of the track on hand to see the first sprint car race on the 1/3 mile semi-banked clay oval since 1998, the main event rolled onto the track. McCarthy , in his beautiful #28M, took his place on the inside of the fourth row for the 30-lap battle. Williams started on the outside of row seven in his equally beautiful #5M.

Seconds after the green light flashed on to start the race, the red light flashed on to stop it. Unfortunately, the red flag was for Williams. Coming off turn two the first time, a car that started in front of Williams slowed and drifted up the track. Williams, with nowhere to go, clipped the other driver's right rear and flipped. He landed on top of another car before settling on the ground on all fours. Fortunately, the 2013 Perris Auto Speedway Young Guns champion was not injured. The same could not be said for his car as it sustained enough damage to finish it for the night.

Once the race restarted, McCarthy became embroiled in a crowd pleasing battle that involved approximately seven cars. Lap after lap positions seven through 14 were being swapped. When the checkered came down, McCarthy had taken a hard earned 10th place spot.

Despite getting knocked out on the first lap in the main event, Williams is sixth in USAC/CRA Series points and is only nine out of fifth. McCarthy is tied for eighth in the standings and only trails the seventh place driver by four points.

Fans can meet Williams and McCarthy Saturday when all the drivers and cars will park on the front straightaway during intermission at Perris. All spectators will be allowed onto the track where the drivers will be signing autographs, posing for photos and passing out free candy to kids. McCarthy and Williams will also have their team shirts available at that time.

For fans who want to see the Flowdynamics team and all the other series stars in action this Saturday, gates will open at 5:00 p.m. and the first race will be at 7:00. Adult tickets are $30.00. Seniors 65 and over get in for $25.00. For kids 6-12 it is just $5.00. Children five and under are free. The fairgrounds charges $10.00 for parking. There will be plenty of tickets for everyone at the ticket window on Saturday night. This event will not sell out. For those who wish to buy tickets in advance, they are available 24 hours a day online at https://www.tix.com/ticket-sales/pas/7/event/1256360 or by calling 1-800-595-4849. The world famous track is located on the Lake Perris Fairgrounds at 18700 Lake Perris Drive in the City of Perris (92571).

After getting a week off on May 7th, the Flowdynamics duo will head to the Bakersfield Speedway on May 14th before returning to Perris for the “Salute To Indy” on May 28th.

McCarthy and Williams would like to thank the following sponsors for making the 2021 season possible. Flowdynamics Inc., JFK Design Build, Cal Therm Mechanical Insulators, CRC Component Repair Co., Encore Gas and Supply, Drink-Pac, and Benic Enterprises. If you or your company would like to come on board and join up with one of the fastest rising sprint car teams west of the Mississippi, please contact John McCarthy at 909 930-5522 or mailto:john@flodyinc.com

Harding Racing - The Season That Was
With the 2021-22 season now done and dusted, Harding Racing team driver Daniel Harding enjoyed plenty of highs, which included a pair of feature-race wins during rounds of the Maddington Toyota Sprintcar Series.
Throughout the season, Harding collected a total of 10 podium feature-race finishes that consisted of two wins, along with eight minor podium finishes – five second-place finishes and three third-place finishes.
Harding’s feature-race successes pretty much book ended his season campaign, after he clinched the win in round two of the Maddington Toyota Series back in mid-November at the Perth Motorplex and then rounded out the season earlier this month at the Perth Motorplex with a victory in the 19thand final round.
In between these two victories, Harding collected eight minor podium 410 Sprintcar feature race finishes,but it still wasn’t enough to see him figure highly in the final Maddington Toyota Series point standings where he ended up eighth. During the season, Harding, who had spent most of the season sitting amongst the top three of the point standings, missed the penultimate round earlier this month at Bunbury Speedway.
With the highs came some lows for Harding and the team, which included a handful of big crashes. Aside from the crashes, the lowlight of the season came during the Krikke Boys Shootout at Bunbury Speedway in March, when he suffered a flat tyre on the last lap while in the lead. To add insult to injury, after crossing the finish line in second, he was later disqualified post-race due to going underweight.
When it came to the overall point scores during the season, the best performance from Harding was when he ended up second in the overall WA Speedweek Series point standings over the Christmas-New Year period.
With the season over, Harding and the team are now putting their focus into their 2022-23 season campaign, which is set to begin with the two weekends of the Chariots of Thunder Series on August 19-20 and 26-27 at Darwin’s Northline Speedway in the Northern Territory.

Breakthrough Win Highlights KMS Season

The second season for Dayne Kingshott and the Krikke Motorsport team together has just been run and won and the highlight to come out their 2021-22 season campaign was without a doubt their breakthrough win.

For Kingshott and the Krikke Motorsport team, January 2 of this year at the Perth Motorplex was a special and emotion-charged occasion, when they romped to their first feature-race win together and Dayne’s first 410 Sprintcar victory during the eighth Maddington Toyota Series round.

Apart from their breakthrough win during the season, which also saw them come awfully close on more than one occasion, Kingshott and the Krikke Motorsport team clinched the Perth Motorplex 410 Sprintcar Track Championship point standings, third in the final Maddington Toyota Series point standings,second in the Triple Crown Series point standings, and fourth in the overall WA Speedweek Series point score.

“There were numerous highlights to come out of the season just gone, with the main one being our first feature-race win together, and we really grew more as a team and our performances reflected that,” commented Krikke Motorsport team driver Dayne Kingshott.

“During the season we had a few unlucky breaks in feature races while in strong positions, which denied us of a better chance of challenging for the Maddington Toyota Series crown, but overall, we had shown consistent speed every night and we had qualified up the front in all of our feature races.”

Krikke Motorsport team manager, Ryan Krikke, was really pleased with Kingshott’s second ever full season in 410 Sprintcars.

“I simply couldn’t be prouder of Dayne and the team,” he expressed.

“This season was a lot tougher here in Western Australia compared to last season. The competition went up to a whole new level this season, as it was deeper across the board with more different winners than last season.I thought Dayne did a great job in and out of the car and improved out of sight as the season progressed.

“Matty (Cochrane, crew chief) and the boys did an excellent job turning out a fast, meticulously prepared hot rod all season. We never had any mechanical issues whatsoever which is a testament to the guys. And on top of that, we’ve probably never had more fun going racing.”

Looking ahead to the 2022-23 season, the Krikke Motorsport team are currently working on their schedule and overall plans.

“I guess the big question now is what do we do next season now that the state borders are open?” Krikke remarked.

“That’s yet to be seen, but we have some pretty exciting plans on the table that include hitting the road again, if warranted, as well as continuing with Dayne. I feel like we are only just starting to see Dayne’s potential, and I think next season he will be a real contender night in night out. It’s exciting times ahead for sure!”

In total, Kingshott and the Krikke Motorsport team collected five podium finishes during their 2021-22 season campaign, which included one win, one second place, and three third-place finishes. They had finished third in their final appearance of the season recently that saw them pick up the Perth Motorplex Track Championship win and secure third in the final Maddington Toyota Series point standings.

Donny Schatz To Enter The Eldora Million®

10-Time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Champion Will Compete in Familiar No. 15 Entry

INDIANAPOLIS (April 28, 2022) – 10-Time World of Outlaws (WoO) NOS Energy Sprint Car Series champion Donny Schatz announced today that he will compete in the return of The Eldora Million® at the legendary Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio on June 8 – 9, 2022.

“Competing at Eldora Speedway in the Prelude to the Dream is what got me hooked on dirt late model racing and having the opportunity to return there to compete in The Eldora Million is something I’m really looking forward to,” said Schatz.

“To be able to compete in a high-profile dirt late model event at Eldora while I’m still a full-time World of Outlaws (Sprint Car) driver is something that I didn’t think would ever happen. A lot of elements had to align just right in the racing world for this opportunity to become a reality and it’s exciting to be able to take part of such a historic event at a track that I’ve had success at in my career.”

Set to compete in his familiar No. 15 Ford Performance powered Rocket Chassis entry, Schatz made his dirt late model debut at the historical half-mile in 2012 during the Prelude to the Dream event in which he drove from 15th to fourth in the star-studded feature. Schatz has won a historic five Kings Royal titles and 17 WoO A-main victories at the storied facility, but he knows the stakes for The Eldora Million® will run high.

“Anyone who knows the sport of dirt-track racing knows that Eldora Speedway hosts some of the biggest races in the world every year – the Dream, the World 100, the Kings Royal – they give teams a great stage to compete on in front of some of the largest audiences in the sport.

“I’ve been fortunate in my sprint car career to win five Kings Royal titles and several WoO Sprint Car features at Eldora but I know that I’ll be coming into the Million from a different vantage point. This time I’ll be competing against a lot of the guys who helped me get started in dirt late model racing and there’s a reason they’re the best at what they do. I have a lot of experience at Eldora but this event will definitely present new challenges and I’m really looking forward to being part of The Eldora Million.”

Schatz’s dirt late model experience since 2012 spans 133 events and includes 14 feature event wins with the Northern Late Model Racing Association (NLRA – 10) and the WISSOTA Promoters Association (WISSOTA – 4) series. In July of 2014, Schatz made his debut with the World of Outlaws Late Model Series (WoOLMS) at Hibbing (MN) Raceway where he earned an eighth-place finish. His most recent dirt late model contests came at Vado (NM) Speedway Park in January 2022 where he picked up two top-10 finishes.

The Eldora Million® will see top names from several high-profile racing disciplines compete for a winner’s purse of $1 million dollars. On Wed., June 8 drivers will compete in a program of tournament-style preliminary features to seed the field for a full program of heat races, last chance showdowns and the $1,002,022-to-win championship feature on June 9. The 2022 event will mark only the second time in Eldora Speedway’s history that The Eldora Million® has been held, as Ohio’s Donnie Moran won the first $1 million dollar purse offered by the track in 2001.

Following The Eldora Million® on June 8 – 9, Schatz will return to WoO NOS Energy Sprint Car Series competition at Knoxville (Iowa) Raceway with the No. 15 Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing team on June 10 – 11.

Event information and tickets for The Eldora Million® can be purchased online at www.EldoraSpeedway.com. All four days of action from the 28th Dirt Late Model Dream® Week, including The Eldora Million® can be viewed on FloRacing. Learn more by visiting www.FloRacing.com.

Newlin’s Recovery Progressing; Return Will Bring Changes

Millerstown, PA – April 28, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

It has been nearly six weeks since the crash that sidelined Zach Newlin from the seat of a sprint car. After a few weeks of progress that netted small steps forward, he has recently taken bigger strides in his recovery.

Despite not being behind the wheel himself, Newlin hasn’t strayed far from the dirt during his break. He’s been serving as car owner and crew chief for his son Caleb, who is in his second season racing caged karts. He picked up a win in his first season last year and is looking to add to his trophy collection.

Recovery Update

Although Zach’s physical therapy for balance issues and concussion-like symptoms was helping to a degree, he made the decision to consult a chiropractor about noticeable differences in his neck since the accident. After an extensive evaluation, Newlin received treated for alignment issues in his neck. Within hours he knew they were onto something.

“I noticed a difference after my first adjustment. Rapid head movement didn’t affect me quite as much as it had before”, Newlin shared. He is now receiving both types of treatment and therapy, trying to “get everything firing together“.

“I probably need a couple more weeks before I come back. It would be nice to come back on May 6th at Williams Grove in Dan’s (Mansberger) 358 but we’ll see“, Newlin said.

Seat Change

In other news, Newlin has decided to step away from the Pryde Motorsports 29.

Zach Daddy fans shouldn’t worry though! Plans are already in the works for Zach to return to 410 sprint car action at Port Royal Speedway in the near future.

Newlin expects to be able to make an official announcement soon. Follow Zach at any of the outlets listed below to keep up to date.

‘Joel Taylor Special’ unveiled & set to race at Jackson Motorplex this season!

Milford, IA (4/28/22) by DarinShort.com. One of the most popular sprint car drivers in Jackson Speedway (MN) history was Joel Taylor, who lived nearby in the Iowa Great Lakes town of Milford, Iowa. And today, the ‘Joel Taylor Special’ has been unveiled, as an effort to commemorate his career.

The project was spearheaded by Brandon Schuette of TopNotch Graphix in Milford, IA. Brandon would like to extend special thanks to all the crew and people that had a hand in this project. The goal is he hopes everyone that had something to do with Joel's car back then and his fans will appreciate seeing this ‘JT Special’ at the track.

The ‘JT Special’ will be driven in 2022 by Andrew Sullivan of Milford, IA. Johnny Sullivan and Brandon Schuette talked about this project over a year ago. He wanted the next #91 305 car to be orange. Joel Taylor was Johnny's favorite driver, and Brandon knew that they needed to duplicate Joel's hood design and have yellow numbers.

Although Joel never raced a car with a painted and lettered wing, Brandon figured if he had, it might look something similar to this design featured in the attached pictures.

Joel Taylor, son of Glenn and Marylee Taylor, was employed as a very skilled engineer at Mcquay’s in Spirit Lake, Iowa – while not tearing up the dirt in nearby tracks on the weekends.

Besides area tracks of Jackson, Huset’s, Fairmont, Spencer and Hartford, Taylor would also venture out to major events at Knoxville Raceway, Eldora Speedway and Manzanita Speedway – often being towed across the land by the brightly painted Spirit Lake Bakery maxi-van.

If you’d like to learn more about Joel Taylor, the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum commemorated him with a display. Click the following Facebook link to check it out:

Brandon and crew would like to wish the best of luck to Andrew, and all the teams competing this season!

Victorious at The Burg

Lebanon, IN Thursday April 28, 2022 - It had been nearly a decade since the Benic Enterprises 2B had sat in victory lane prior to Saturday's victory at Lawrenceburg Speedway with Chad Boespflug behind the wheel. May 18th, 2012 marked the last time the 2B visited victory lane. It had been almost as equally as long that former Lawrenceburg Speedway Track Champion Chad Boespflug parked in victory lane at The Burg. The 2B Racing team made a late decision to complete in Saturday's local event as they have their focus set on the Xtreme Outlaw Series. The team decided to race to fine tune the car and find some additional speed as they have an off period from Xtreme. The work put in showed just that, speed was found. The 2B was quick out of the gate topping the charts in group qualifying. Transferring through the heat Boespflug then charged from a 6th place starting spot to the Win in the AMain by over a straightaway.

"Thankful for the opportunity Scott Benic and Benic Enterprises has given me to race and the hard work both he and Matt Meeks put in. Proud to take the 2B to victory lane at Lawrenceburg." - Chad

SHANE SEXTON STARTS 22ND AND FINISHES 12TH AT MOHAVE VALLEY RACEWAY

(Warner Springs, CA, April 27, 2022) Last Saturday night when the USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series visited the Mohave Valley Raceway, “Shugah” Shane Sexton did what he has done all season long. He advanced forward in the main event. This time he started 21st, passed nine cars, and finished 12th.

Things did not start out exactly as planned for the driver and the gorgeous red metal flake #74 on the Arizona oval. His lap of 18.232 in qualifying was only good for 23rd of the 27 cars on hand. Things did not go much better in the heat when he finished eighth.

Not placing in a transfer spot in the heat meant the teenage driver had to go to the B main. There he started and finished in the final transfer position to earn his ticket into the A. Before getting that transfer, disaster nearly struck for “Shugah” when several cars tangled in front of him almost blocking the track on the sixth lap. However, he found a hole in the chaos and slipped through it.

The main event became what is turning into a typical “Shane Sexton Main Event.” He wisely stays out of trouble and moves forward every race. That was evidenced once again on lap one at Mohave when several cars tangled directly in front of him. It was a traffic jam with cars scrambling in every direction and one flipping through the air. Sexton again avoided the commotion and was able to continue unscathed.

Later in the main, Sexton steered clear of a couple other minor incidents and methodically worked his way forward all the way up to 12th by the end of the 30-lapper. It was his second best finish of the year and was only surpassed by an 11th on the final night at Cocopah Speedway on January 29th.

Sexton’s propensity to pass cars in main events started at the Cocopah Speedway when the series kicked off its 2022 schedule with three nights of racing at the end of January. On the first night the El Capitan High School senior started the 30-lap main in 21st. He had moved forward and was in the top 10 before he flipped with two laps to go. However, he was still credited with 14th place. One night later the crew barely got the car repaired from that crash in time to push off for the main event. The run was basically just to see if the car would be ready for the final night. Despite that, he still moved forward four spots to finish 21st after starting 25th.

On the final night at Cocopah, Sexton went from 18th to 11th. When the series picked back up at Perris Auto Speedway on March 26th, he earned the “Jim and Chet Gardner Hard Charger Award” by going from 22nd to 14th. With last week’s last to 12th effort, he has passed 36 cars in the five main events he has contested this year.

Entering this week’s race at Perris, Sexton is 18th in series points despite missing two races.

For fans who want to see the personable driver in action this Saturday, gates will open at 5:00 p.m. and the first race will be at 7:00. Adult tickets are $30.00. Seniors 65 and over get in for $25.00. For kids 6-12 it is just $5.00. Children five and under are free. The fairgrounds charges $10.00 for parking. There will be plenty of tickets for everyone at the ticket window on Saturday night. This event will not sell out. For those who wish to buy tickets in advance, they are available 24 hours a day online at https://www.tix.com/ticket-sales/pas/7/event/1256360 or by calling 1-800-595-4849. The world famous track is located on the Lake Perris Fairgrounds at 18700 Lake Perris Drive in the City of Perris (92571).

After a week off on May 7th, Sexton will make the 233 mile journey to compete at the Bakersfield Speedway on May 14th. He will follow that up with a return to Perris on May 28th.

In addition to competing in the tough USAC/CRA Series, later in the year, Sexton will return to his roots to race some Lightning Sprint Car races. He will head north to drive for Brian Fonseca in the “Clay Cup” at Washington’s Deming Speedway from July 14th through the 16th and the “Cal Cup” at California’s Lemoore Speedway. The race at Lemoore will take place from October 13th through the 15th.

Sexton and the #74 team wish to extend their thanks to the following 2022 racing season partners. Gas Chassis, Key Brothers Racing, Nita Gatlin, Hugh Jorgan, Mike Pridgeon Racing Engines, AG Sandcars, Powder 1, Ron’s Tire and Brake, and Savage Racing.

Bonus Money on the line for Attica "regulars" when World of Outlaws invade

Wednesday, April 27, 2022

ATTICA, Ohio – When the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series invades a track that hosts weekly 410 racing like Attica Raceway Park, one of the most exciting things for the fans is cheering on their “regular” racers to beat the Outlaws! When the World of Outlaws come to Attica Raceway Park on Friday, May 20 for the Kistler Engines Classic, the “regular” racers can make a lot of extra money.

Attica will cover the World of Outlaws membership fee for the top 15 in weekly points after the track’s May 13 event.

Attica Raceway Park will also offer up some bonus money. Any driver in the top 15 in track points who can take down the World Of Outlaws and win the A-main will earn an additional $2,000. The highest finisher in the A-main who is in Attica’s top 15 in points will receive a $1,000 bonus. Should the driver in the top 15 in points win the A-main then the next highest finisher in the track’s top 15 in points gets the $1,000 bonus.

“We are blessed with a great field of weekly 410 sprint car teams and we know they will be ready when the World of Outlaws come to Attica. It will be an entertaining night for sure,” said Rex LeJeune, Director of Operations at Attica.

“John Bores knows the work and costs the local teams have in preparing for these big events and wants to reward them for their dedication not only to the track but to 410 sprint racing,” added LeJeune.

The Fremont Fence 305 Sprints will also be in competition on May 20, battling for $1,000 to win.

Gates will open at 3 p.m. on May 20 with racing underway at 7:45 p.m. Reserved seats for the Kistler Engines Classic are available at www.atticaracewaypark.com (click on the Kistler Engines Classic banner at the top of the page).

Wayne County Speedway GLSS Sprints preview

ORRVILLE – Following its highly-successful season opener, the O’Reilly Auto Parts Wayne County Speedway is back it again on Saturday night with the second marquee event in as many weeks.

The 3–8-mile oval near Orrville will host the Michigan-based Great Lakes Super Sprints presented by Engine Pro and ARP, along with WCS’’s own Pine Tree Towing and Recovery 410 sprint cars, the Elite Munitions modifieds, and the JoyRide mini stocks. Gates open at 3 p.m. with hot laps slated for 6 and racing at 7.

The 360 cubic inch GLSS series visited WCS in 2021, before late afternoon rains stopped the evening’s festivities. The touring series brought 22 cars to the Buckeye state with a similar number expected on Saturday, according to founder and race director, and transplanted Ohioan, Barry Marlow.

“We’re very excited as a group to be making the trip south (to Wayne County Speedway),” said Marlow. “We’ve heard a lot of good things about the speedway, and in fact have two or three guys that are going to be bringing their 410 cars to compete as well.”

The GLSS opened its season last Saturday at the Crystal Speedway in Michigan, with Ontario, Canada pilot Dylan Westbrook scoring the victory. Series regulars and Ohio natives Max Stambaugh (third) and Phil Gressman (sixth) scored top 10 finishes with defending series champion Ryan Ruhl fifth and Dustin Daggett sixth. Florida native and rising star Danny Sams, who will also enter a 410 in compitition scored an eighth-place finish.

“We know it's tough right now with the costs and parts shortages, but historically, we’ve never had less than 14 drivers compete in every race on our schedule each year,” Marlow said. “We have 15 committed of our regulars for Saturday, and we look to equal or surpass last year’s car count. We have the only 360 show in Ohio and neighboring states this weekend.”

BALOG SCORES RUNNER-UP FINISH AT BLOOMSBURG FAIRGROUNDS WITH

ALL STAR CIRCUIT OF CHAMPIONS

Photo Credit: Chad Warner Photography

Hartland, Wisconsin (April 27th, 2022) – B Squared Motorsports collected their second heat race win of the season and first podium A-Main finish of the 2022 Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 season last week in Pennsylvania. Representing the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions vs. a stout field of Pennsylvania Posse, Bill Balog and the Anderson’s Maple Syrup #17B secured a second place finish in Bloomsburg Fair Raceway’s first time hosting a 410ci sprint car competition on April 21st, 2022.

After a second row starting position, Bill Balog took command of the 30 lap feature race on lap 10 and would battle Anthony Macri through lapped traffic with Macri gaining the lead at the flagstand on lap 17. Balog continued to match the fast pace, finishing second, followed by Justin Peck, Tyler Courtney, and Zeb Wise.

“It was fun to run up front and lead some laps. The track stayed good throughout the night, you could really move around and run different lines. We were hoping we would get another shot at the leader in lapped traffic but that last caution gave everyone clear air” said Balog, driver of the CK Contractors LLC, Buesser Concrete, Howard Law, Wayne Corini, CPA, Capitol Senior Services LLC, Rocky Rococo's Pizza, Turn It Up Media sprint car.

Following the first podium finish of the year, the team joined 41 entries with the All Star Circuit of Champions at Williams Grove Speedway. Bill Balog and the team were able to transfer to the A-Main through the heat race and would finish the evening +1 positions, finishing 18th in the 30 lap Tommy Hinnershitz Classic feature event.

The final night of the Pennsylvania triple header weekend was the 2022 Keith Kauffman Classic at Port Royal Speedway. Following the team's 2021 success at the “Speed Palace”, the North Pole Nightmare made a heroic run, turning a 14th starting position to a third place finish in the 12 lap B-main to qualify for the feature event.

“We continue to focus on being better in qualifying. We changed the car a bit in advance of the B-Main and made a good run there while the track got a few additional lanes rolling. We put in some quality laps and were able to pass a lot of quality cars to get ourselves in the feature event” said Balog.

The team kept the momentum with a strong run in the A-main. Once again, Bill had the Anderson’s Maple Syrup, Capital Senior Services #17B carried good pace and moved forward at the “Speed Palace”, gaining ten positions, ultimately finishing 13th, after starting 23rd in the 30 lap Keith Kauffman Classic.

“We didn’t change much for the main and the car was good. That was fun, especially early to middle of the race, we were able to pass a lot of quality cars. It was great to have Todd Olejniczak and Capital Senior Services with us at the track, move up positions and gain momentum all night.” said Bill Balog.

At the end of the evening, Bill and the B Squared Motorsports team earned the Carquest Perseverance Award and the J&S Classics Warrior Award, securing an extra $1,000 for their efforts.

Upcoming Racing Schedule

B Squared Motorsports will continue their 2022 Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 campaign with a Pennsylvania and Ohio mixer on Friday through Sunday, April 29 through May 1, visiting Lernerville Speedway, Sharon Speedway, and Waynesfield Raceway Park in consecutive fashion. All three events will award $6,000 top prizes, simultaneously igniting a busy May slate of nine events throughout Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania.

In response to the concern for limited right rear tire supply resulting in the potential for a very low car count, Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 and Bedford Speedway officials have made the mutual decision to postpone the Bedford Speedway event scheduled for Thursday, April 28, until a date later in the year that has yet to be determined. An announcement will be made when it becomes available.

Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, Tenn., hosts the World of Outlaws Bristol Bash on Friday and Saturday. It's an event that Gravel swept last year, winning both the preliminary night and the $25,000-to-win finale.

"I'm definitely very excited to come back," he said. "It's a prestigious place with more money on the line this year. We were very fast last year. It was kind of a perfect weekend with dash draws and all of those things. This year we'll try to put ourselves in the same position and contend for a couple of wins."

The Big Game Motorsports driver was the one to beat last year as he set quick time the opening night and was second quickest during the finale. Gravel won his heat race both nights. He claimed the dash the first night and finished second the second night. And both A Mains ended with Gravel driving into Victory Lane.

"I wouldn't say added pressure, but I would say confidence," he said. "The second night we fell back to third at one point and had to fight and battle and only led a couple of laps. I think there's a lot of fast guys. Our car had a lot of speed, but other people did as well. Hopefully we'll unload with a lot of speed and put ourselves in the dash both nights."

Gravel is coming off his 12th top-10 outing of the season last Saturday at Tri-State Speedway, where he qualified third quickest, placed third in a heat race and advanced from ninth to sixth in the main event.

"It would have been good to get another shot at the race track by being in the dash," he said. "I think we had a decent car in the feature and I felt we were competitive. I think if we started up there we could have competed, but we weren't stellar enough to really charge forward and make a lot of big moves. At the line I lost fifth place by two hundredths of a second. Best case scenario was to run fifth and we finished sixth."

Friday's event at Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Ill., rained out, marking the fourth straight weekend with a rainout on Friday for the World of Outlaws.

Austin McCarl Pleased With Rain Shortened Return to Knoxville Raceway

PETERSEN MEDIA: Finally getting the famed Country Builders Racing entry back on track in Knoxville, IA, Austin McCarl was extremely happy with how the early part of the night went before Mother Nature delayed the feature to a date to be announced later this season.

“It has been a weird Spring with weather, and though we didn’t get to run the feature last weekend, I was happy with how our car felt and the speed we had heading into the ‘A’ where we were scheduled to start on the pole,” Austin McCarl said.

Getting the night underway, McCarl timed the Country Builders Construction/Ochoco West Lumber/Tucker Trucking backed No. 88 entry in 12th fastest amongst the 23 car field braving the elements for the long awaited season opener at the facility.

Moving into heat race action, ‘The Big Unit’ took the green flag from the second row. Jumping into second on the race’s opening lap, McCarl was able to drive by Dustin Selvage on the second lap to take over the top spot.

Opening up his advantage over the next six-laps, McCarl would race his way to the win and find himself on the pole of the impending feature event.

As preliminary action wrapped up, and cars began to ready for the feature, the sky would open up and a sever downpour would promptly wash out the remainder of the night.

With just feature events left, officials will reschedule the conclusion of the race at a later date this season.

“There are a few things I need to clean up in time trials, but it is a good feeling to know that we do have good speed at Knoxville, and hopefully we can take advantage of our starting position in the feature when we are able to make the race up,” McCarl added.

Austin McCarl and Country Builders Racing would like to thank Country Builders, Ochoco West Lumber, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, Walkers, Tucker Trucking, Kolthoff Electric, MAAS Brothers Powder Coating, Offill Family Farms, Stealth Cam, Bosma Family Farms, Muddy, HRP, Penske Racing Shocks, A.R.T. Enterprise, Engler Machine, Aurora Rod Ends, Schoenfeld, Wilwood, Smith Ti, Kistler Engines, Rider Racing Engines, Moyle Engines, Hinchman Indy, Bell Helmets, Maxim Chassis, B. Scadden Design, and Octane Ink for their continued support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races: 7, Wins: 0, Top 5’s: 0, Top 10’s: 1

ON TAP: Country Builders Racing and Austin McCarl will be right back in action on Saturday night as they make a return trip to Knoxville, IA.

Reinhardt Garners Podium and Top 10 During Busy Week

Lernerville, Sharon and Waynesfield Up Next

New Oxford, PA – April 27, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Who doesn’t love to go back home? Things are always better when you do, right? Such was the case for Neptune City, NJ native Kyle Reinhardt when he returned to his home state to compete at Bridgeport Motorsports Park last week. From there, the busy week brought him through the heart of his new home, Pennsylvania, for three races.

4/20: Invasion of the Posse / Bridgeport Motorsports Park / Swedesboro, NJ

(27 cars, Qualifying 1st, Heat 3rd, Dash 1st, A-main 2nd)

Quite a few friends, family and others who have watched Reinhardt develop as a driver since the start of his career in NJ, turned out to see one of his rare appearances back on home turf. He had run well and won races on the old 5/8th mile configuration at Bridgeport, and he didn’t disappoint on the new 4-tenths configuration either.

Reinhardt put together a solid night from start to finish. Early on it was clear he was among the best in the 27 cars in attendance. He registered quick time in his group, placed 3rd in his 10-lap heat to solidify a spot in the dash, won the 6-lap dash, and came home with a 2nd place finish in the 30-lap feature event.

The All Star Circuit of Champions will invade Bridgeport later this summer on August 25th and Reinhardt will certainly be one of the favorites when they do.

4/21: ASCoC / Bloomsburg Fairgrounds Raceway / Bloomsburg, PA

(28 cars, Qualifying 13th, Heat 4th, A-main 24th)

Reinhardt and the rest of the touring All Stars, 28 cars total, rolled into the new Bloomsburg Fairgrounds Raceway for the first time on Thursday night.

Wheeling his Capitol Renegade / Capitol Custom Coaches & Trailers / Champion Hi-Tech Lubricants / J&J Auto Racing No.91, Reinhardt was the 8th car to go under the clock in qualifying. He landed about mid-pack, logging the 13th quickest lap in the field.

Reinhardt started 5th in the first of three 8-lap heats. The top six finishers transferred to the A-main, while the winner and quickest qualifier to transfer would get a spot in the dash. Kyle used a strong start to jump into the 4th position but was unable to chase down the front trio during the remaining laps.

Starting 12th in the 30-lap main event, Reinhardt was aiming for a top ten finish and a solid points night. Things went from bad to worse on a restart with ten laps complete when Reinhardt cut a right rear tire entering turn one. He managed to avoid heavy contact but while in the work area to replace the tire, discovered a brake issue that ended his night with a disappointing 24th place finish officially.

4/22: ASCoC Tommy Hinnershitz Classic / Williams Grove Speedway / Mechanicsburg, PA

(41 cars, Qualifying 1st, Heat 4th, Dash 10th, A-main 10th)

Reinhardt and the Capitol Renegade team were anxious to get back to Williams Grove on Friday night. They were ready to put Thursday’s disappointment behind them, and Williams Grove was the right place to do it. Reinhardt had run very well there earlier this season prior to the start of the All Star schedule.

A tough field of 41 cars signed in to compete at the legendary Mechanicsburg, PA half-mile. The All Star sanctioned event used a five group qualifying format for the large field.

Reinhardt was the eighth and final car to go under the clock in Group D. He promptly claimed the top spot in the group with a 17.124, which also ended up being good enough to be tied for 5th overall.

After starting 4th in his 8-lap heat race, in which he needed to finish in the top four to transfer to the A-main and secure a spot in the dash, Reinhardt dropped to 5th on the opening lap. He quickly battled back to 4th on the ensuing lap and held on to the position the rest of the way.

The dash draw didn’t go Reinhardt’s way. He drew the number nine spot, making it a tall order to obtain a starting spot in the front couple rows. Reinhardt was running 9th when things went from bad to worse. The engine in his No.91 gave up as the dash drew to a close, instantly turning the Capitol Renegade pit area into a beehive of activity.

Reinhardt’s team jumped into action, pulled the failed bullet out of their J&J Chassis and dropped in a fresh one to try to make the call for the feature, in which they were scheduled to start 10th. In just over 15 minutes they accomplished their goal and Reinhardt pushed off to test-fire the car.

During the 30-lap A-main, Reinhardt worked his way up to 8th by the halfway point. Although he lost a little ground during the second half of the race and crossed the finish line right where he started, it was a welcome top-10, considering what he and the team had been through.

“I have to thank my guys. They worked their asses off to get that done and save our night. Really proud of them. I also want to thank Cap Henry and the Lane Racing team for jumping in and helping us get it done. I think we had a top-5 car earlier tonight, but with the dash draw and engine issues, we’re happy to get a good finish and salvage the night“, Reinhardt commented.

4/23: ASCoC Keith Kauffman Classic / Port Royal Speedway / Port Royal, PA

(42 cars, Qualifying 4th, Heat 5th, B-main 4th, A-main 24th)

Rolling into Port Royal Speedway for his fourth race in as many days, Reinhardt was one cut tire away from being on a streak of top-10 finishes. What the Capitol Renegade team needed was to finish the week with a strong showing at ‘The Speed Palace’, a place that has been challenging for them over the past season or two.

Reinhardt recorded the 4th fastest time in the first of five qualifying groups for the 42 cars on hand, giving him a starting spot inside row two in the first 8-lap heat race of the evening. After losing 3rd place to Saturday’s overall quick qualifier, Mike Wagner, on the opening lap, Reinhardt worked hard to fend off Brent Marks for the 4th and final transfer spot. Eventually Marks slipped by, relegating the Capitol Renegade No.91 to a 5th place finish and sending Reinhardt to the B-main.

The struggles continued for Reinhardt, who slid from the pole of the B-main to the 4th and final transfer spot during the 12-lap event. It wasn’t pretty, but they were in the show. At least it was a chance to make some changes and see how the car would respond. Unfortunately, it didn’t. Reinhardt finished 24th.

“It was a solid week for us, minus Port Royal. We’ve had good speed this year but it’s no secret we’ve been struggling at Port. We just need to keep trying things to get better there. We’ll figure it out”, Reinhardt said.

Up Next

Reinhardt and the Capitol Renegade team will head west for a 3-race swing with the All Star Circuit if Champions. The series will stop at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, PA on Friday, Sharon Speedway in Hartford, OH on Saturday and Waynesfield Raceway Park in Waynesfield, OH on Sunday. Thursday’s previously scheduled event at Bedford Speedway in Bedford, PA has been postponed to a later date due to tire shortages. The new date has not yet been announced.

Sides Opening Seat of No. 7s for Part-Time or Full-Time World of Outlaws Opportunity

Inside Line Promotions - BARTLETT, Tenn. (April 27, 2022) - The moment of transition has arrived for Jason Sides, who is eyeing a future outside of the race car after decades behind the wheel.

The long-time World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series competitor is opening his seat of the No. 7s for either part-time or full-time options starting next week.

"I'd rather be racing another 10 or 20 years, but my body won't let me," Sides said. "One knee is messed up and a hip is messed up. I can hardly get in and out of the car. I walk around like an old man. I don't like to make excuses, but if this is what getting old is I can't race to the level I want to.

"I've always envisioned being involved in racing long after my days behind the wheel. I think we're in that transition now as we are opening up the seat."

Sides, who is heading to race at the World of Outlaws Bristol Bash this Friday and Saturday at Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, Tenn., has been a veteran racer with the World of Outlaws since winning the Rookie of the Year Award in 2003. He's placed inside the top 10 in the championship standings eight times and has recorded 15 feature triumphs with 'The Greatest Show on Dirt.'

"We have built a team that can travel the country and race with the best," Sides said. "I've enjoyed a lot of success throughout the years and we've had other drivers come in and compete at the top level of the sport, including Tim Kaeding earning a top five at the Knoxville Nationals in back-to-back years. The pieces are in place for success and I intend to be at every event whether I'm racing or we have someone in the car.

"We are fully committed to racing with the World of Outlaws this year. If there are races when we don't have a driver lined up I plan on competing. I'm not retiring nor am I doing a fair well tour. We've just reached the time when I can't race to the level I want to and now we're open to the idea of filling the seat with an up-and-coming driver or a veteran of the sport."

Any driver interested in partnering with Sides Motorsports can reach out to Paul Sides by emailing Paul11j@yahoo.com.

EDDIE TAFOYA JR. THIRD IN THE INAUGURAL USAC/CRA RACE AT MOHAVE VALLEY

(Chino Hills, CA, April 26, 2022) Shaking off the effects from a nasty flip in a shifter kart a few days earlier, Eddie Tafoya Jr. finished third in the USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series 30-lap main event at Arizona’s Mohave Valley Raceway last Saturday night. The race was the first-ever for Tafoya, and for the series as well, on the fast 1/3 mile semi-banked clay oval that is located just minutes away from the Colorado River.

After starting the season off with three top 10 finishes, including a career-best USAC/CRA second-place result on January 29th, Tafoya had mysteriously finished out of the top 10 in his last three outings. Going over every inch of the car before last week’s race, the crew made several changes. The changes paid immediate dividends as the likable driver returned to his early-season form and finished on the podium for the second time in the last five races.

The weekend prior, Tafoya, who lives 32 miles east of Los Angeles in Chino Hills, California, was driving his shifter kart at the Adams Motorsports Park in Riverside. A rear brake rotor broke sending the kart flipping into the air and landing on top of the 2018 Perris Auto Speedway Young Guns champion. The violent wreck left Tafoya battered and bruised but it did not diminish his will to make the trek to Arizona for Saturday’s sprint car race.

The series had another nice turnout of cars with 27-signing in at the back gate on the windy day. Tafoya timed in sixth quick in qualifying with an impressive lap of 14.554. The 2019 USAC/CRA and Southwest Series Rookie of the Year started fifth in his heat race and placed third in the 10-lapper. The qualifying effort along with his finish in the top four in the heat netted him the outside front row starting spot in the 30-lap main.

With the day-long winds finally relenting, the 22-car main event field took the green flag in front of one of the largest crowds in the track’s history. Initially, Tafoya slipped backward. On Lap five, he was fifth. By the time the race reached the halfway point, he was back to sixth. However, things began to change quickly and the #51T began a resilient move forward.

By the end of the 20th go around, Tafoya had raced his way back to fifth. Before a restart two laps later, he had picked off another competitor and was fourth. When the third-place car slipped off the bottom of the track at the end of the 22nd lap, Tafoya quickly pounced on the opportunity presented to himself, and with a slick inside move, he sailed into third. He then turned his attention to the cars running first and second and he quickly chased them down. Over the last five laps, Tafoya hounded the leaders and stayed close to the end to finish third in the 30-lapper.

While it was not a win, Tafoya was right there at the end with a car that was capable of getting to the checkered flag first. That top-notch car now has a driver who has proven that he can run with the big dogs and is skilled enough to win. And the series now has another top contender who can give the longtime veterans all they can handle.

The impressive performance saw “Mr. Smooth” move up one spot to fifth in the season-long championship standings. He will be looking to move up once again and will be after his first win this Saturday night, April 30th, when the USAC/CRA Series visits Perris Auto Speedway for the “Sokola Shootout.” Spectator gates will open at 5:00 p.m. with racing at 7:00. Adult tickets are $30.00. Seniors 65 and over get in for $25.00. For kids 6-12 it is only $5.00 and children 5 and under are free. Advance tickets are available online at the following link https://www.tix.com/ticket-sales/pas/7/event/1256360 or by calling 1-800-595-4849.

Perris Auto Speedway is located on the Lake Perris Fairgrounds at 18700 Lake Perris Drive in the City of Perris (92571).

Tafoya and the #51T team would like to thank Specialty Fasteners, DRC Chassis, Ryder Racing Engines, Simpson Safety Products, Bell, Benic Enterprises, BR Motorsports, PSC Powder Coating, Magik Graphics, Gasper Transportation, Owen’s Insurance Services, and Weld Wheels for making the 2022 season possible.

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

Kaleb Montgomery Looks Forward to Return to Placerville Speedway After Tough Trip to Merced

PETERSEN MEDIA- Getting back to work with F&F Racing on Saturday night in Merced, CA, Kaleb Montgomery would have some tough luck in his heat race that led to a long with during the second round of SCCT action.

“We didn’t have a great qualifying run, but you’ll have nights like that,” Montgomery said. “We were in a good spot in our heat race, but unfortunately, we got caught up in someone else’s misstep and it knocked our front end out. With the car count, that put us in the ‘C’, and pretty much dictated our night.”

With 52 cars on hand during Saturday’s SCCT event in Merced, CA, Montgomery tied the Bushey Financial Services/C&H Motor Parts/Lucas Oil backed No. x1 machine in fourth quickest in his group of 11.

Lining up third in his heat race, the Templeton, CA driver would settle into the fourth and final transfer spot as he worked around the extremely slick Merced bullring.

As luck would have it, a driver would get of shape in front of Montgomery and making contact, damage would occur to the front end of the Friends and Family entry, and it would result in Montgomery bringing out the caution as he needed assistance to the pit area.

With the robust car count, it meant Montgomery would be forced into the ‘C’, and after track prep, the race would be run on a very fast and narrow racing surface.

Lining up 10th in the 10-lap ‘C’, Montgomery would have his work out for him as only the Top-Two finishers would transfer into the ‘B’. While passing was tough, Montgomery did give it everything he had had he was able to pick up five positions and finish fifth. While it ended his night, Montgomery was still pleased with how his car was all night long despite the tough results.

“On paper it wasn’t a good night, but if we don’t run into that issue in our heat, we are probably in the feature, or at worst starting in front of the ‘B’, and who knows what happens,” Montgomery said. “These F&F guys worked hard again for me, and I am excited to get back up to Placerville Speedway this weekend. Warmer temps, and hopefully a slick track with a big curb to lean on.”

F&F Racing would like to thank Bushey Financial Services, C&H Motor Parts, Lucas Oil, Geico Local Office, Econo Lube-n-Tune & Brakes, Pacific Highway Rentals, PitStopUSA, FVP, CRV Carbon Solutions, American River Overhead Door, All Pro Heads, Engler, and Don Ott Racing Engines for their support.

ON TAP: F&F Racing will be back in action Saturday night at Placerville Speedway.

Madsen and Roth Motorsports Get Off to Quick Start at Knoxville Raceway Before Mother Nature Delays Feature

PETERSEN MEDIA- Weather delays have summed up the early part of the schedule for Kerry Madsen and Roth Motorsports. Before getting out of California an event in Hanford was cancelled to high wind. Making their way back to the Midwest, the Knoxville opener was rained out and the alternative event in Pevely, MO saw the first night also succumb to rain. Saturday night, it looked as if the team would get a night of racing in at the re scheduled Knoxville Raceway opener, but amidst a really strong night rain would again show up and cancel the night’s feature event.

“Weather has been brutal for us this year, and if you add on my trip to Florida in February, I think it’s something like 10 rainouts that I have endured,” Kerry Madsen said. “Nonetheless, it was great to get back to Knoxville on Saturday night and I was really happy with how our night was going heading into the feature event.”

With 23 cars checked in for the long-awaited Knoxville Raceway season opener, ‘The Mad Man’ got the night off to a quick start as he timed the Roth Enterprises/HR Livestock Transportation/Jason, Tara, and Cole Roth Cattle Co. No. 83JR timed in second fastest in qualifying.

Lining up sixth in his heat race, the St. Marys, NSW driver wasted no time showing that he would be one of the favorites to win in the feature event as he flexed his muscle and worked his way forward.

On a track that he has had so much success on over the course of his career, Madsen would carve his way to a second-place finisher and be the top point earner heading into the feature event.

Slated to roll off the starting grid from the eighth starting position, Mother Nature would have other plans as it became time to run feature events.

With a huge rain cell drenching the speedway, track officials had no choice but to delay the feature until a date to be named.

“It has been a weird start to the year, but it was great to get back to Knoxville and have a ton of speed,” Madsen added. “Big thanks to Dennis and Teresa Roth, Todd Ventura, Paul Baines, Gravy, and everyone associated with this team for their continued support and hard work. Hopefully we can get some races under our belts moving forward.”

The Roth Motorsports team would like to thank Roth Enterprises, HR Livestock Transportation, Jason, Tara, And Cole Roth Cattle Co., Roth Investments, Speedway Engines, Toyota, TRD, Mobil1, FK Rod Ends, Vahlco Wheels, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, Kent Performance, Kaeding Performance, and Smith Titanium for their support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-8, Wins-0, Top 5’s-1, Top-10’s-3

ON TAP: Roth Motorsports and Kerry Madsen will return to Knoxville Raceway this Saturday.

Wilson Records First Victory of Season at Fremont Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - FREMONT, Ohio (April 26, 2022) - Greg Wilson earned his first feature triumph of the season last Saturday at Fremont Speedway, where he guided the Seeling Motorsports No. 97 into Victory Lane.

The win was Wilson's 14th career at the track, moving him into a tie for 43rd on the all-time victories list. It was also the first-ever trip into the Winner's Circle with the All Pro Aluminum Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series presented by the Baumann Auto Group for the Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics and DNC Hydraulics backed driver.

"With the travel expenses and everything else, to drive six and a half hours one way for one race last weekend financially wasn't smart for our team," he said. "When the World of Outlaws cancelled Friday's show the choice was to go to Attica and then Fremont on Saturday. It was close to the shop and we could get two races in."

The decision paid off as Wilson improved throughout the doubleheader, beginning on Friday at Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio. He qualified seventh quickest in his group before hustling from seventh to fourth in a heat race and from 14th to sixth in the main event.

"We were in the first group of cars out in qualifying and the track was a little greasy," he said. "It got better as it went so that part bit us a little. We also took a different car and package so it was a combination of things. We were lucky to pass some cars in the heat and transfer through, which I felt was huge. Then our car got better and I got better as the feature went on. Attrition got us a few spots, too. The track stayed good and it was hard to pass. We tried a lot of stuff with the car and didn't have a handle on it, but to salvage sixth from 14th was great."

The team took a different car to Fremont Speedway on Saturday. Wilson was fourth quickest in his group and he won both a heat race and the A Main from the pole.

"After Friday with it getting over late and some of the stuff we were questioning we decided to take the other car we ran the previous week at Attica," he said. "Andy (Potter) did a whale of a job. We hot lapped good and qualified decent. We started on the front row and won our heat race. We were really good. Then my daughters drew the pole for the feature.

"I told Andy that if I get the lead and pace myself, until someone shows me a nose or a different part of the track I'm going to cruise. Cole (Macedo) got around the outside of us and got the lead for a little around midway. We moved up and when he made a mistake a couple of laps later we got around him. We had to get up there and bounce with him. You had to run right through the holes. Andy had the car really good. It was pretty cool to win on that type of a track."

With momentum on his side, Wilson is aiming to compete with the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions this Friday at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa.; Saturday at Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio; and Sunday at Waynesfield Raceway Park in Waynesfield, Ohio.

"We're feeling pretty good about the direction we have going on," he said. "We have a few things to work on so we can have a little more depth. We've run the one car and engine package and we've been really good. We need to work on some depth with another car and engine package. Other than that we're pretty excited. We have a lot of racing, hopefully, coming up."

Amantea Optimistic After Rough Result at Port Royal Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - PORT ROYAL, Pa. (April 26, 2022) - A tough ending to the night last Saturday hasn't derailed Joey Amantea's excitement for the 2022 season, which has started on a high note.

Amantea entered the Rapid Tire USAC East Coast Sprint Cars Series event at Port Royal Speedway with a top-10 outing during each of his first four races of the season and Saturday looked just as promising.

"We were really fast in the heat race," he said. "We went from fourth to second and I felt like we were tracking down (Briggs) Danner. We cut his lead from a straightaway to a quarter straightway. We were set up a little differently, but we were fast. Come feature-time we were really excited, but that didn't end well."

Amantea lined up on the inside of the fourth row for the main event, but he was involved in a multiple-car incident during the opening laps. The team was unable to return to action and Amantea was credited with a 15 th-place result.

"Looking back at the replay a guy in front of me set his corner and I set my corner," he said. "He slowed really quickly and I had too much momentum and it caused a wreck. It was just a racing deal. We had a super fast car and it sucks that it happened. We showed a lot of speed so there is positive to take out of the night."

Amantea remains fourth in the USAC East Coast Sprint Cars Series championship standings heading into a doubleheader with the series this weekend. It begins on Friday at Delaware International Speedway in Delmar, Del., before Bridgeport Motorsports Park in Swedesboro, N.J., hosts an event on Saturday.

"At Delaware we've struggled a little bit, but I feel a lot more confident going back," he said. "And we're looking for a podium at Bridgeport. I know we have the speed to do it. It's been a good track for us."

April 23 - Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pa. - Heat race: 2 (4); Feature: 15 (7).

Starks Wins Grays Harbor Raceway Season Opener for First Time

Inside Line Promotions - ELMA, Wash. (April 26, 2022) - Trey Starks won his season-opening race for the first time in his career last Saturday at Grays Harbor Raceway.

Starks was efficient throughout the long night as he qualified seventh quickest. He then won a heat race after lining up on the outside of the front row.

"The track was challenging all night," he said. "They got some new clay and it made for a rough night. Fortunately we were able to keep our nose clean each time we hit the track."

The feature inversion was a zero, which made Starks line up on the inside of the fourth row in the A Main.

"We actually were in the lead before the first official lap," he said. "There were several cautions and red flags when the race started. There were a couple during the race, which was shortened to 15 laps. I just tried to hit my marks and keep it on all fours and it worked out."

Starks plans on returning to action this Saturday at Skagit Speedway in Alger, Wash.

Austin Hartmann posts rock solid 410 debut
in IRA opener at Beaver Dam Raceway

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) April 26, 2022 – Third-year Sprint Car competitor Austin Hartmann successfully launched his first season behind the wheel of a 410 Winged Sprint Car in the 2022 Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association (IRA) season opener at Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver Dam, Wis. on Saturday, April 23.

Utilizing a calm, cool and collected approach in negotiating a lightning fast and tricky track surface, Hartmann brought his Bennett Transport Inc.-sponsored 87A Hartmann Racing machine home to an 18th-place finish in the first 30-lap A main of his rookie season with the regional touring Bumper to Bumper IRA 410 Sprint Car Series.

Hartmann, who earned the 2020 Midwest Sprint Car Association and Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Car Rookie of the Year Awards, opened the night by turning in the 22nd fastest qualifying effort among the 25 drivers signed in for the 2022 IRA season-opening event with a lap of 13.282 seconds.

“We started out the night good in hot laps, as those were my first laps under power with a 410 motor,” Hartmann said. “I learned the speed difference and how it's going to react. In qualifying, I didn't intend to, but I burnt my first lap by mess ups. The car handled like I thought it was going to, it just was tricky getting it how I wanted it.”

After lining up eighth in the first eight-lap IRA heat race, Hartmann pulled into the infield on lap 3 with a power steering issue. After retiring from the event, Hartmann was scored with a ninth-place finish.

“In the heat race, I pulled off due to a power steering line that blew off covering the cockpit and myself with fluid,” Hartmann said. “My team went to work and got it fixed up, cleaned up and ready for the A main.”

Later in the evening, Hartmann returned to the ultra-quick, high-banked, undulating third-mile clay oval to roll off 25th in the 30-lap IRA headliner.

Hartmann stayed smooth and consistent, while steering clear of trouble, as attrition helped the Plymouth, Wisconsin driver move up seven spots throughout the course of the race on the way to an 18th-place showing in a race won by Scotty Thiel.

“The team and myself really had one goal in mind for the feature and that was to keep it in one piece and finish all the laps, which we did,” Hartmann said. “All in all, I'm very happy with how the night went and getting everyone back on course with what they had to do within the team aspect, as well as getting laps and learning the car.”

With the Bumper to Bumper IRA 410 Sprint Car Series idle, the 87A Hartmann Racing team is planning to compete in a non-IRA points 410 Sprint Car event at Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wisconsin this Saturday, April 30.

“The 87A Hartmann Racing team is looking forward to running a non-points event at Wilmot this coming weekend,” Hartmann said. “We can't wait to build off what we previously learned at Beaver Dam. I can't thank my team and sponsors enough for this amazing opportunity I have been blessed with.”

The 87A Hartmann Racing team has assembled a strong group of partners in support of the team's maiden voyage with the Bumper to Bumper IRA Series, including Kristine Hartmann of Pleasant View Realty, Shufflebotham Tree Service, Call Girls Motorsports, Pallet Works LLC, AF Inc., Bennett Transport Inc., SCA Inc., Gretchen Tillman New American Funding, Classic Title Services, CP Services, Cobblestone Landscaping, Jensen Sales & Services, Lee’s Color Studio, Dave’s Fabrication, RC Custom Design, Hepfner Racing Products, Pit Road Apparel, the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series and Sage Fruit.

The 87A Hartmann Racing team consists of Hunter Annis, Karlee Hartmann, Andrew Shufflebotham, Caitlin Shaw, Jarrett Neese and Kristine Hartmann.

Blake Carrick Races Into SCCT Feature in Merced, CA

PETERSEN MEDIA: Making the trip South to Merced, CA on Saturday night for round two of Sprint Car Challenge Tour, Blake Carrick battled his way through the ‘B’ and successfully transferred into the feature event amidst a robust 52-car field.

“The track was really slick and starting to take rubber in time trials, and we didn’t get a good lap in,” Blake Carrick said. “We picked up a couple of spots in our heat, but with the track the way it was, once we got going passing was pretty tough.”

Timing the CVC/Cemex/Interstate Oil backed No. 38B machine in eighth fastest in his qualifying group, Carrick would find himself in the fourth row of his heat race on a track that was already extremely slick and taking rubber is spots.

Getting a good start in his heat, Carrick would pick up a couple of vital positions as he was able to race his way into fifth, which didn’t transfer him into the feature, but it did put him in the ‘B’ opposed to one of the twin ‘C’s’.

Lining up second in the ‘B’, Carrick would need to finish inside the Top-4 to keep his night alive, and he would do just that. Slipping back to fourth as the race came to life, Carrick would run hard as he was under siege for the final transfer position for all 15-laps.

Finishing fourth, Carrick would earn the final spot in the 35-lap feature event where he would take the green flag from the 24th starting position.

Just prior to the feature event taking the green, a complete track re-work took place and made the surface extremely fast for the opening laps.

On the lightning quick surface, the leaders would reach the back of the field in just five laps, and once he lost a lap to the lead pack, Carrick made the decision to pull into the infield and call it a night.

“Once we got lapped there was no point to really stay out there and abuse more tires,” Blake Carrick said. “It was a long night, so I really have to thank the guys for their hard work and staying up on the conditions all night.”

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

ON TAP: Blake Carrick return to action on Friday and Saturday night as he will head to Chico, CA.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-9, Wins-0, Top 5’s-3, Top 10’s-5

Ryan Robinson Hard Charges In Merced, CA

PETERSEN MEDIA: Despite passing being at a premium during Saturday’s feature event in Merced, CA, Ryan Robinson was one of the few who was able to make up ground as he advanced from his 21st starting position to finish ninth and earn PitStopUSA Hard Charger honors.

“First off I want to thank Moxie Mechanical for lending us an engine to use for the night,” Ryan Robinson said. “We had a few adjustments to make to it after qualifying, and then in the heat race went the wrong direction on our set up and put ourselves in a hole.”

Timing the Mako Farms Inc./LP Holdings/RPI backed No. 14w entry in fourth fastest in his qualifying group with 52 cars on hand on this night, Robinson would lien up third in his heat race.

On an extremely slick surface, Robinson struggled to make grip on the ¼ mile bullring and slipped back through the field. Finishing sixth, the Foresthill, CA native would be forced into the ‘B’ for one final shot at advancing into the 35-lap feature event.

Making an array of changes leading into the semi, Robinson was extremely pleased with his entry as he was able to pick up the win convincingly, after starting sixth, and kept his night alive as he punched his ticket into the ‘A’.

With a full-fledged track rework taking place prior to the ‘A’, Robinson and company made changes best on their guess of what the track would do and took their position in the 11th row to start the ‘A’.

Though the reworked surface was fast, and many in the middle of the field could run side-by-side with others, but struggled to pass, though Robinson didn’t have those struggles.

When the race came to life, Robinson had a great start as he quickly jumped into the 18th position before taking over 16th on the second lap.

With the laps clicking off extremely fast on the hooked up Merced Speedway, Robinson was just as fast as he reached the Top-15 in just seven laps.

Continuing to march to towards the Top-10 in what ended up being a 27-lap green flag run to open the race, Robinson had climbed 10 spots when he could finally catch his breath during the lone stoppage of the ‘A’.

Jumping into 10th when the race went back to green, Robinson would briefly slip back to 11th the following lap before moving into ninth on the 32nd lap, where he would go on to finish and capture the PitStopUSA Hard Charger Award.

“Big thanks to my dad, and everyone on the Weiher Racing team for their hard work all night long,” Robinson said. “I also want to thank the Weiher Family for letting us bring their equipment out to race while they had other obligations on Saturday night.”

Weiher Racing would like to thank Mako Farms Inc., LP Holdings, Roseville Precision Inc., Escalon Body and Frame, Seth’s Racing Engines, Pettibone Builders, Sipes CC, The Holman Family, Square Tires, Papa Chuck, Dave Harvey Trucking, and Morrison Concrete for their continued support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-4, Wins-0, Top 5’s-0, Top 10’s-3

ON TAP: Robinson and the Weiher Racing team will be idle the next couple of weeks before resuming their SCCT slate on May 13th and 14th in Tulare, CA and Hanford, CA.

SPRINT CARS AND MODIFIEDS IN PERRIS SOKOLA SHOOTOUT SATURDAY

(Perris, CA, April 25, 2022) Two popular disciplines of race cars will converge on Perris Auto Speedway for the annual Sokola Shootout this Saturday night, April 30th. The USAC/CRA Sprint Cars, PAS Senior & Young Gun Sprints, and IMCA Modifieds will all be in action. Spectator gates will open at 5:00 p.m. and racing will start at 7:00.

Saturday’s race honors the memories of Gary and Mark Sokola. Gary began his participation in racing as a car owner in the original CRA. He went on to become the president of the club during what was arguably its most successful era from 1978-87. After leaving CRA, Sokola served as USAC’s Assistant Director of Competition and was the Supervisor for the USAC National Sprint Car Series through 1997. The Livonia, Michigan native moved on to oversee the construction of the Dodge City Raceway Park in Kansas before passing away on November 10, 2000.

Sokola’s son Mark began racing TQ Midgets in California in 1982. He eventually advanced to the CRA Sprint Car Series where he was voted the club’s Most Improved Driver in 1986. He scored a career-best sprint car third-place finish racing in an SCRA main event at the Santa Maria Speedway in August of 1994. He passed away in his sleep in April of 2003.

“It is a big deal for us to honor Gary and Mark Sokola each year at Perris Auto Speedway,” promoter Don Kazarian said. “Gary was a forceful no-nonsense kind of guy and CRA flourished under his leadership. His biggest concern was safety and if he deemed that your car was not safe enough, you did not race. That was it! There was no debating his decision. He took the original CRA to a higher level during his years in charge.”

“Mark was born into a racing environment,” Kazarian continued. It was only natural that he would be involved in some way. Being Gary’s son, it was inevitable that he would race sprint cars. He turned into a pretty good driver.”

Saturday’s show is the first time The PAS has paired sprint cars with Modifieds in quite a few years. They will race together every month through October. The only exception will be July when the only event during the month will be Night of Destruction on July 2nd.

“We think that adding modifieds to the sprint car shows is going to be very good for everyone involved,” Kazarian stated. “It will expose fans from each group to a different discipline of racing than they normally get to see. In USAC/CRA you have the top nonwing sprint group west of the Mississippi. IMCA sanctions several different divisions, and its modified division is the largest in the world. This should work very well for our local IMCA drivers and their sponsors. They will be racing in front of much larger crowds and as USAC/CRA races are usually streamed, they will gain exposure to fans around the world.”

Concord, California’s Damion Gardner, the nine-time CRA champion, has gotten off to a great start in 2022 winning five of the first seven races on the schedule. That includes the March 26th race at The PAS. Seligman, Arizona’s Richard McCormick and Stevie Rogers of Apple Valley, California won the season-opening main events in The PAS Senior and Young Gun Sprint Car classes on the same night. One week earlier, Bakersfield’s Austin Kiefer won The PAS opening IMCA Modified main of the year on March 19th. All four are expected to be in action on Saturday.

In addition to the regular USAC/CRA competitors, Gardner’s archrival Brody Roa of Garden Grove, California is adding his name to the competition on Saturday.

MUST SEE RACING SET TO KICK OFF 2022 WITH A TRIP TO SOBO

April 26, 2022 – Must See Racing Sprint Series presented by Engine Pro is set to kick off the new season with a pair of events at South Boston Speedway this weekend April 29-30. It will be the first-time winged sprints have roared around the historic 4/10 mile, slightly banked speedway in South Boston, Virginia. It will also be the first time MSR has competed in the state of Virginia.

Two nights of full racing programs complete with 30-lap feature events both nights will be on tap with a full field of drivers representing seven states expected. Defending (2021) MSR champion Anthony McCune headlines a list that also includes three-time Little 500 champion Jeff Bloom, Five-time MSR champion Jimmy McCune, and home state Virginia driver Anthony Linkenhoker.

Must See Racing in an attempt to help teams compete this weekend despite high fuel costs, will be proving fuel subsidies thanks to sponsor Steadfast For Veterans. “To assist our race teams with today’s excessive travel/fuel cost our marketing partner Steadfast for Veterans decided to reallocate the weekends $2,000.00 STEADFAST FOR VETERANS CHALLEGE funds to a fuel subsidy for the race teams based on their travel distance. That’s the kind of cooperative partnership that makes our series and sport work, we really appreciate it” stated MSR president Jim Hanks. “It is a real honor to play our part getting the word out to race fans about their commitment to provide housing for homeless veterans and how the racing community can contribute to their worthy program” concluded Hanks.

This weekend’s inaugural ‘American Sprint Car Weekend’ won’t be the first-time sprint cars have roared around South Boston Speedway, but it will be the first time the powerful winged 410 sprint cars have graced the facility that opened in 1957. USAC non-wing sprint cars last raced at SOBO on October 13, 2001. Tracy Hines won that long ago event.

The existing all-time SOBO track record is all but certain to fall. Whenever MSR visits a new venue for the first time, the existing track record usually falls. MSR bills itself as having ‘The Fastest Short Track Cars in the World.’

Other drivers currently entered include Bobby Santos III, Joe Liguori, Tommy Nichols, Jacob Dolinar, Tim Henthorne, Rick Holley, Tom Jewell, Todd McQuillan, Mike McVetta, Johnny Petrozelle, Joshua Sexton, Charlie Schultz, and Joe Speakman to date.

The USAC Eastern midgets will also be on hand both nights offering open wheel fans a open wheel double header treat.

Halligan Earns Top 10 with All Stars
Pleased with Season So Far, Poised for Next Level

Port Royal, PA – April 25, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway, Jeff Halligan and the Risser Motorsports team had their best opportunity of the young 2022 season to find out how they measure up against some of the best sprint car competition the country has to offer.

At the end of the night, they had their answer. They were able to load up feeling good about their program after a hard-earned top-10 finish against the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions.

April 23: Keith Kauffman Classic / Port Royal Speedway / Port Royal, PA

(42 cars, Qualifying 1st in group/8th overall, Heat 3rd, Dash 7th, A-main 9th)

Halligan’s Risser Motorsports / TheTreeCenter.com / Victory Auto of Lewistown / EMM Sales & Service / Jake’s Golf Carts, No.45 was one of 42 cars registered to take a shot at the $10,000 prize awaiting the winner of the Keith Kauffman Classic, honoring the winningest driver in the speedway’s history.

The All Star sanctioned event used a five group qualifying format for the large field. Halligan was the fifth of nine cars in Group B to take time. On his first of two laps, he laid down a 15.737 that held up and earned him quick time in the group and 8th quickest in the entire field.

“We timed well and we’ll be in the dash as long as we can transfer in our heat. This is our first true night race of the season, so we’ll have to adjust a little. The things we’ve learned so far this season on the daytime surfaces don’t all translate. We need to make the right decisions the rest of the night“, Halligan commented after time trials.

The qualifying effort put Halligan 4th in the starting lineup for heat number two. Under All Star rules, the 8-lap heats are lined up “straight up by time, except for the fastest qualifier in each group/heat, which will invert to the 4th starting position”. In the five group format, the top four finishers of each heat transfer directly to the A-main, with the heat winner and the quickest transfer from each heat earning a spot in the random draw for their starting position in the dash.

Given the rule, all Halligan needed to do was fend off some stout competition and finish in a transfer position to secure a spot in the dash draw. He was able get it done, finishing 3rd in the heat race.

During the draw for the ten available starting spots in the 6-lap dash, Halligan pulled pill number eight. On the opening lap, he was able to charge into the 6th spot but ultimately came home 7th, earning the inside row four starting spot for the night’s finale.

Halligan didn’t get the start he wanted in the 30-lap A-main. By lap three he had slipped back to the 11th position. Around the halfway point of the event, the Ephrata (PA) driver started to find a rhythm and make forward progress. With five laps remaining, he had clawed his way back to 8th in the running order. When the checkered flag fell on the event, Halligan crossed the line with a hard-earned 9th place finish.

“We just missed it a little in the feature tonight. The positives are that even though the car didn’t feel very good out there and we dropped early, we were able to pass cars later and we were really strong at the end. We definitely learned some things in the feature. Overall, the night was a success”, Halligan commented.

Halligan now sits 5th in the season point standings at ‘The Speed Palace’. A mere 15 points separates a very close battle among the 3rd-5th place teams.

“We’re in a really good spot with everything right now. Even though we may not have been a top-10 car in the feature, we were able to get a top-10 because we put ourselves in a good position all night long. Every time you hit the track; it matters. Every spot you earn matters at the end of the night”, Halligan concluded.

Remember the well-known and often repeated quote by the late author Zig Ziglar? He said, “Success occurs when opportunity meets preparation.“

Halligan and Risser Motorsports have been the model of consistency thus far at Port Royal, but that isn’t a result of just doing the same thing every week. In today’s sprint car racing, being good on one night is hard, being good on multiple nights is very difficult. Behind the scenes, Halligan and team have been adjusting, learning, trying new things, and improving.

When you add it all together, the result is a team that it going to get hot at some point. To fans it may appear as if it happens suddenly, but it will have been because of weeks and months of effort leading up to it.

Up Next

Halligan and the Risser Motorsports team will be back at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday, April 30th for a dual heats, passing points format show. It will also be camera and autograph night for fans, with the pits being open to all ticketholders for an hour prior to the night’s event. Stop by to say hello, get a photo and get a close up look at Jeff’s No.45!

BRODY ROA BACK IN ACTION SATURDAY AT PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY

(Cypress, CA, April 25, 2022) After what seems like an eternity, Brody Roa returns to action this Saturday night, April 30th, in the USAC/CRA Series “Sokola Shootout” at Perris Auto Speedway. Roa’s last outing was on the same track when he qualified for his first World of Outlaws main event on March 26th.

The time off for “The Pride of Garden Grove” was not in his initial plans for 2022. His original schedule had him racing in the NARC King of the West Sprint Car Series at Hanford, California’s Keller Auto Speedway on April 9th. However, that race was canceled due to extreme winds at the venue that is in California’s fertile Central Valley.

Saturday’s return to the track closest to his Garden Grove, California home will see Roa back in a wingless car for the first time in nearly three months. His last topless appearances came while driving Jason May’s #8M in a pair of ASCS races at the Central Arizona Speedway on February 11th and 12th. On that weekend the 31-year-old recorded fifth and second-place finishes. The fifth came on the first night when he had what seemed to be an insurmountable lead only to run out of fuel late in the yellow flag-plagued race.

This week’s race will be a kickoff to a portion of Roa’s schedule that will see him compete without doffing a wing on top for five straight months. The first three races in the span will be Saturday at Perris, on May 14th at the Bakersfield Speedway, and then back again at Perris on May 28th when he will defend his title in the prestigious “Salute to Indy.”

Last year Roa competed 10 times on the famous Perris track. He had two wins, a second-place finish, one third, and two-fifth-place results.

In the upcoming five-month span, Roa plans to compete a minimum of 20 times on nine different racetracks in three different states. As well as his native California, he will also be competing for three nights with the USAC National Sprint Car Series at South Dakota’s Huset’s Speedway and eight different Indiana tracks during the annual Indiana Sprint Week. All 11 of the races outside of his home state will take place within 22 days.

All told in five non-wing sprint car races this year, Roa has a second, a fourth, two fifth-place finishes, and one sixth. Even though he has only raced in three of the first seven USAC/CRA races in 2022, he is still in the top 20 in points at 17th.

Spectator gates will open at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday and the first race will be at 7:00. Adult tickets for Saturday are $30.00. For seniors 65 and over it is $25.00. For kids 6-12 it is just $5.00 and children five and under are free. The fairgrounds charges $10.00 for parking. Advanced tickets are available online at https://www.tix.com/ticket-sales/pas/7/event/1256360 or by calling 1-800-595-4849./ If you do not wish to buy advance tickets, we will have plenty available for everyone at the ticket window on Saturday, this event will not sell out.

Perris Auto Speedway is located on the Lake Perris Fairgrounds at 18700 Lake Perris Drive in the City of Perris (92571.

Brody Roa merchandise is available online. You can see it all in his store which is packed with great items including t-shirts, sweatshirts, caps, beanies, baby onesies, plush blankets, jigsaw puzzles, stickers, notebooks, tote bags, wine tumblers, mugs, bandana pet collars, and more. To check it out, please visit the following website https://www.brodyroa.com/shop/.

In 2022, Roa will race USAC/CRA, USAC National, and other select events, in his #91R BR Performance/HD Industries Eagle. He will also drive the #8M for May Motorsports in select USAC West Coast events. The 2019 USAC Southwest and 2017 USAC West Coast champion is always open to discussing other driving opportunities.

Roa and the team want to thank the following sponsors for making the 2022 season possible. HD Industries, Burris Racing, Sander Engineering, Inland Rigging, Caltrol, “Biker” Bruce Fischer, Competition Suspension, ALR Virtual Services, K-1 Race Gear, Molecule, Rod End Supply, Driven Racing Oil, Baldwin Filters, and NGK Spark Plugs. In addition, the veteran driver offers thanks to RDM Mechanics, Fastenal, Coopers Propane, Ten West Towing, Ten West Environmental, TJM Distribution, and Westco International for sponsoring the #8M he will pilot for Jayson May on 10 occasions in 2022.

If you or your company would like to jump on board and receive recognition as a team partner throughout the 2022 racing season, please give the two-time USAC champion racer a phone call or drop him a note at the contact information on the top of this release.

Tim Kaeding battles for 10th at Merced with two nights in Chico on deck this weekend

By Gary Thomas

Merced, CA…Tim Kaeding and Bates-Hamilton Racing recovered from a late race spin in traffic to fight their way back and score a 10th place finish in a stacked 52-car field this past Saturday with SCCT at Merced Speedway.

“The surface definitely started out pretty dry from the start, so early on it was a bit demanding and technical,” Kaeding commented. “Fortunately, we were able to move forward in our heat race and at one instance I thought we had a chance to win it. The positive thing was we did find some more speed with the 360 car so we will take a 10th and move on to the next.”

To begin the event last Saturday Kaeding was part of heat race number two, where he qualified sixth overall, which lined up the Teichert Construction/ VinylTech PVC Pipe/ Clow Valve/ BenefitRFP No. 42X outside row three. “TK” immediately went to the high side and moved forward in exiting fashion, challenging for the top-spot at one point, before crossing the stripe in second.

By charging ahead in the heat it gave him the 13th starting spot for the 35-lap finale. Following track prep the surface started out lightning fast in the main event and saw cars covering every inch of the quarter mile. While attempting to work his way forward Kaeding got into a spin battling through traffic with eight circuits remaining, forcing him to the rear.

After going back green the 43-year-old wheel man continued driving past cars and got up to 10th by the time the checkered flag waved.

This weekend will see the Bates-Hamilton Racing team bring out the 410 car with two big nights of racing at Chico’s Silver Dollar Speedway. Friday’s non-sanctioned show is billed as the “Brownell-Herseth Classic” while Saturday’s “David Tarter Memorial” marks round two of the NARC 410 Sprint Car season.

Racing Optics back with Brad Doty Classic

Monday, April 25, 2022

By Brian Liskai

ATTICA, Ohio – “If you have a clear vision, you will attract the right strategy.”

That certainly holds true for a racer blasting through the dirt of Attica Raceway Park when the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series invades for the 34th Annual Ohio Logistics Brad Doty Classic Presented by Racing Optics on Tuesday, July 12.

For a dirt track racer clear vision at all times is a must and Racing Optics provides the best products to do just that. Since joining the Ohio Logistics Brad Doty Classic as a heat race sponsor in 2008, Racing Optics has had a clear vision to grow right along with the event. And for the 13th year in a row, Racing Optics has stepped up to be the presenting sponsor of the race.

“We have been very fortunate to have Bart Wilson and his family choosing to be a part of our event for 15 years now! They are a racing family who realized the need for a better tear off for dirt racers. Racing Optics laminated tear offs are by far the best quality and have the best visibility of any tear off on the market, and they are not only used just for dirt racing, but many other applications as well. But for dirt racing, when track conditions are extreme and the mud and dirt is completely covering your face shield several times every a lap, you can stack 30 to 40 Racing Optics tear offs on your helmet and still see through them as if you are using 3 or 4 of a competitor’s brand,” said Brad Doty, Co-Promoter of the event.

Racing Optics®, Inc. is located in Las Vegas, Nevada, and was founded in 1999 by Bart, Steve and Seth Wilson. Racing Optics®, Inc. and the Wilson family have deep roots in the racing industry dating back to the 1940s. Racing Optics®, Inc. is the proprietor and only manufacturer of Laminated Tearoffs. Racing Optics®, Inc. has become a staple and even a necessity to every racer in every category of motor sports, including NASCAR, Formula1, dirt track racing and motocross.

Racing Optics’ multi-layer, removable optical film has been a game changer in racing and a variety of other industries. The company’s Surface Protection business extends their expertise in laminated film to protect valuable public and commercial surfaces including medical, industrial and in the military.

This year will mark the 17th time the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series has sanctioned the Ohio Logistics Brad Doty Classic Presented by Racing Optics and this year the winner will take home $15,000….a $5,000 increase from 2021. There have been 25 different winners in the 31 contested Brad Doty Classic features (2 have been rained out). Lebanon Indiana’s Spencer Bayston claimed the 2021 Brad Doty Classic, his first ever World of Outlaws victory as well.

Mitchell Faccinto Fifth with Sprint Car Challenge Tour

PETERSEN MEDIA- Returning to action off of a two-week hiatus, Mitchell Faccinto and the Tarlton Motorsports team flexed their muscle against a stout 52 car field on Saturday night in Merced, CA as Faccinto pocketed a fifth-place finish with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour.

“We had a really good night,” Mitchell Faccinto said. “We had good speed all night, and the only blemish was pulling an eighth for the Dash only to see the Dash cancelled which then put us eighth on the starting grid for the feature event.”

Taking part in qualifying group No. 1, Faccinto would get the Tarlton and Son Inc./EZ Haul/Executive Auto Sales backed No. 21 in second fastest in qualifying time trials which would then line him up on the front row of his heat race.

With the track extremely slick and on the verge of taking rubber when heat race one we green, the Hanford, CA driver knew the importance of getting the jump and did just that as he was hard on the throttle.

Leading from flag to flag, Faccinto’s win would move him into the impending Dash where the eight placed him in the fourth row. As the night went on and more track prep would be needed, SCCT officials opted to cancel the Dash for the sake of time and tire wear which then put Faccinto in the fourth row of the 35-lap feature event.

An extensive track prep prior to the feature going green changed the surface drastically and created an extremely fast racing groove for the opening stages of the event.

Settling into seventh, Faccinto would run there as passing would be tough during a fast paced 27 lap green flag run that opened the race up. While it looked like the race would go non-stop, the restart would be just what Faccinto needed.

The ensuing restart would see Faccinto advance a row as the action came back to life as he took over the fifth position and pressured Tony Gomes for fourth.

Unable to make the move in the race’s closing stages, Faccinto capped a strong night with a fifth-place finish as he now turns his attention to a doubleheader in Chico, CA.

“I really want to thank Drew and the guys for giving me a really good car,” Faccinto said. “It was great to get back in and be fast right out of the box after a couple weeks off and in our 360ci after not running one for the last two months. Thanks to Tommy and Tom Tarlton for letting us come out and have fun, and I am really looking forward to Chico, CA this weekend. After getting our first win there together back in early March, I am really confident heading back there this weekend.”

Tarlton Motorsports would like to thank Tarlton and Son Inc., EZ Haul, Executive Auto Sales, Pabco Gypsum, Bandy and Associates, FK Shocks, FK Rod Ends, System 1 Ignition, Vortex Wings, and BG Lubricants for their support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races: 9, Wins: 1, Top 5’s: 3, Top 10’s: 4.

ON TAP: Mitchell Faccinto will return to action Friday and Saturday night in Chico, CA.

 

 

Sean Becker and Cook Motorsports Have Another Strong Showing with SCCT

PETERSEN MEDIA- Though the race wasn’t on the team’s initial schedule, Cook Motorsports made a last-minute decision of sorts to pack up and head south to Merced Speedway in Merced, CA with Sean Becker on Saturday night, and it proved to be worth the team’s while as ‘The Shark’ won his heat race and picked up a seventh-place finish.

“I am grateful that Blake Cook and his team decided to make the extremely long tow to Merced Speedway,” Sean Becker said. “The car was extremely fast every time I hit the track, and I wish I could have drawn a better pill for the Dash/Feature with the way the track was.”

A robust 52-car field was on hand Saturday night for the second installment of the 2022 Sprint Car Challenge Tour campaign, and Becker would get the night kicked off by timing the Absolute Plumbing/Cook’s Contracting/CSR Builders backed No. 22x machine in second fastest in his qualifying group.

With the track already taking rubber by the time heat four hit the speedway, Becker’s pole starting position would be more important than ever as he needed to pick up the win to transfer into the Dash.

Nailing the start, ‘The Shark’ quickly motored away from the field as he led the duration of the race and took the win going away. With the win, Becker moved into the Dash where he then pull the 10, which slotted him to line up in the fifth row of the 6-lap shootout.

With time and tire wear becoming a growing issue on this night, SCCT officials made the decision to scrap the Dash, which meant Becker would now line up 10th in the 35-lap feature event.

A freshly groomed track surface prior the 35-lap finale led to a fast surface in the early goings as Becker worked his way forward on the ¼ mile bullring.

Jumping into ninth, Becker would hold the position as passing was difficult during a 27-lap nonstop run.

The race’s lone restart would come in clutch for Becker as he was able to make a couple of swift moves to secure the seventh spot. Battling with Shane Golobic during the race’s closing stages, Becker would take the checkered flag with a seventh-place finish.

“Unfortunately, our starting position put his mid-pack, and then passing was really tricky,” Becker added. “I felt like we had a car good enough to battle up front, but we just could not get there. I am having so much fun running with these Cook brothers and can’t wait until our next race.”

Cook Motorsports would like to thank Absolute Plumbing, Cook’s Contracting, CSR Builders, Shark Racing Engines, Cottage Grove Inn, Primetime Designs, Highline Performance, Les Schwab, and Cascade Pizza for their support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts- 4, Wins- 0, Top 5’s- 1, Top 10’s-2

ON TAP: Cook Motorsports’ next event is TBD at this time.

Sean Becker will be back in action this Friday and Saturday night in Chico, CA.

 

 

Carrick 17th with SCCT at Merced Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA: Taking part in Saturday’s event with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour, Tanner Carrick would pocket a 17th place finish in the 35-lap feature event.

“We got called for a jump in our heat race, and that took us from a possible Dash/Redraw spot to starting in the back of the pack on a track that really wasn’t conducive for passing,” Tanner Carrick said. “They reworked it for the feature, and it wasn’t as slick but actually got kind of fast and we just kind of got stuck in the back.”

With 52 cars packed into the pit area on Saturday night, the Lincoln, CA driver go things started by timing the CVC/Cemex/Interstate Oil backed No. 83T in second fastest in his qualifying group.

Lining up on the pole of his heat race, the initial start would see a car spin to bring out a yellow, and the ensuing restart it was deemed that Carrick was hard on the throttle early and he was then penalized a row.

Able to finish in the fourth and final transfer spot in his heat, Carrick was securely in the 35-lap feature event where he would roll off of the starting grid from the 18th starting position.

Prior to the feature event, the track would undergo a rework as rubber had gone down the speedway. Ripping it up, and applying more water, the track would hold the moisture very well in the ‘A’, but it created a fast surface that saw a lot of side-by-side racing, though passing would be tough.

“You could get alongside people, but passing them was another story,” Carrick said.

Settling into 18th when the race came to life, Carrick would run hard but would be unable to get moving forward as the race clicked the first 27-laps off with no stoppages.

Bouncing between 18th and 17th in the closing laps of the race, Carrick would ultimately bring his night to a close with a 17th place finish.

“I felt really good all night, and I have to thank the guys for all of their hard work,” Carrick said. “Frustrating to not be able to put a charge together, but we won’t dwell on it, and we will turn our attention to Chico, CA.”

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

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts: 18, Wins: 3, Top 5’s: 7, Top 10’s: 12

ON TAP: Tanner Carrick will be back in action on Friday night at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, CA and on Saturday night with battle with the SCCT at Merced Speedway.

Eighth Place Finish in Merced, CA Keeps Justin Sanders Atop SCCT Point Standings

PETERSEN MEDIA: Saturday night in Merced, CA, Justin Sanders was able to avoid a late race tangle to finish eighth in the feature event and keep him atop the early season Sprint Car Challenge Tour points lead.

“We had a good car all night long, but the track was really hard to pass on, so we took what we could and salvaged a decent night,” Sanders said. “We had a close call in the feature, but luckily I was able to keep the car under power and keep our spot inside the Top-10.”

A robust 52-car field checked in at the central CA bullring on Saturday night, and in his qualifying group, Sanders timed the Farmers Brewing/Mittry Construction/North County Plastering backed No. 2x entry in third fastest in his group.

Finishing second in his heat race, the Aromas, CA native would punch his ticket into the impending 35-lap feature event where he would find himself back in the 12th starting position.

With the track deteriorating and getting touched up during various periods of the night, one final track prep session was needed prior the feature event and it would create a fast racing surface that put on some exciting racing, but made passing difficult.

As the race came to life, it would turn into a near non-stop affair after the initial start was waived off. From the sixth row, Sanders would actually slip back to 13th initially before taking the 12th spot back over on the third lap.

Getting into 11th on lap five, Sanders would slip back to 12th on the 10th lap as things moved at a very fast pace of the tight confines of Merced Speedway.

Slipping back to 13th on the 24th lap, Sanders would become involved in an incident in turn two on the 27th lap, but able to keep his machine under power he was able to escape trouble and take his spot in line in 12th for the race’s lone restart.

The restart would be just what Sanders needed to get his machine moving in the right direction as he quickly took over the 11th position when the action resumed, before making his way into the Top-10 a lap later.

With time running out, Sanders would then move into ninth on the 29th lap, before taking eighth, where he would finish, with just three laps to go in the race.

“That restart was what we needed to gather ourselves back up and salvage our night with a decent finish,’ Sanders said. “Thanks to this Mittry Motorsports team, and I am looking forward to a couple of nights in Chico, CA this weekend.”

Justin and his team would like to thank Farmers Brewing, Mittry Construction, North County Plastering, Alkaline88, Andy’s Construction, Roadside 24hr Service, Wicked Cushion, Roger’s Diner, Factory Kahne, BG Labels and Tee’s, Walker Performance Filtration, Dixon and Son Tires, Ernie’s Service Center, East Lake Village, FK Rod Ends, Triple X Race Co., DMI, Keizer Wheels, Wings Unlimited, Ti64 Titanium, AIS Heating and Sheet Metal, Fred Lint and Family, JonSan Racing, Sandblast Service, G&N Construction, Steitz Towing, Durden Construction, Ernie’s Service Center, and Steve Duppman Racing for their continued support in 2022.

ON TAP: Sanders will be in action on Friday and Saturday night in Chico, CA.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-12, Wins-4, Top 5’s-8, Top-10’s-11

Myers Jr Slowed at Merced Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA: Traveling to Merced Speedway on Saturday night for Sprint Car Challenge Tour action, Joel Myers Jr would have a challenging night as he ultimately found himself in the ‘B’ Main and was unable to make the transfer into the feature.

“Early in the night, track conditions were tricky and even though it was relatively the same for everyone, we just couldn’t get ahead of it and lock ourselves into the feature,” Joel Myers Jr said.

With 52 cars checked in for the series’ second event of the 2022 season, Myers Jr would time the Starr Property Management/Morrison Concrete/Hi-Plains Building Division backed No. 83V mount in seventh fastest in his respective group.

Lining up seventh in his heat race, rubber became an issue early in this night, and by the time the third heat took the track racing conditions were extremely narrow.

Picking up one position in his heat would be vital as the sixth place finish locked the 16-year-old wheelman into the semi rather than forcing him into one of the night’s twin ‘C’ Main events.

Following track prep before the twin ‘C’ Main’s, the B Main surface was extremely racy and allowed for some drivers to work different lines of the high-banked ¼ mile bullring.

Taking the green flag from the ninth starting position, Myers Jr would be one of the bigger movers in the 15-lap event. Working his way forward, Myers Jr would race into sixth, but the top-four had gotten away from him.

Doing what he could to track them down as they got into traffic, Myers Jr would be unable to obtain a transfer position and his night would come to an end earlier than hoped.

“In the “B” main I felt good, and that was a positive from the night,” Myers Jr said. “It was tricky in qualifying with rubber starting to go down, and then in our heat we just got in line and went. Thanks to Dave Vertullo, Brian Cannon, and all of the guys that help our team out.”

Joel Myers Jr Racing would like to thank Starr Property Management, Morrison Concrete, Hi-Plains Building Division, PitStopUSA, G&N Construction, System 1 Ignition, Dirt Dudes, Weld, Smith Ti, Y2K Gaming, Shark Racing Engines, Lucas Oil, Vaider, L Delo Designs, Walker Performance Filtration, ShopRico.Com, Tiner Hirst Enterprise, Kaeding Performance, Ogio, All About Fire Protection, and Triple X Race Co. for their continued support.

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

ON TAP: Myers Jr and Vertullo Motorsports are set for two nights of 410ci action Friday and Saturday night in Chico, CA.

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (April 25, 2022) – Always an elbows-up affair at the southern Indiana bullring, Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing salvaged a 12th-place score at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Indiana, on Saturday, April 23, recovering after contact during a single-file restart nearly sent the ten-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion backwards through the infield.

Apr 25, 2022

2022 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Championship Standings: 11th | 1820 points [296 points behind championship leader, Brad Sweet]

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

JONESTOWN, Pa. (April 25, 2022) – Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Indiana, is certainly known for its high-paced, elbows-up persona, and that was exactly the case on Saturday night, April 23, when the World of Outlaws invaded for their annual appearance. Brock Zearfoss, a second-year competitor with the Greatest Show On Dirt, did his best to tame Tri-State’s wickedness, but was ultimately caught up in the chaos, forced to settle for 14th after being involved in a “nowhere to go” tangle with traffic.

Despite the chaotic ending to his Indiana visit, Zearfoss is ready to move on, already looking ahead toward a big weekend at Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, Tennessee. Dubbed the Bristol Bash, Bristol’s weekend finale on Saturday, April 30, will award a $25,000 payday, all of which igniting with a practice session on Thursday and a preliminary program on Friday.

“Tri-State is a fun place to race, but it’s easy to get caught up in a mess,” Brock Zearfoss said, driver of the Moose’s LZ Bar & Grill, Heavy Equipment, Loaders & Parts Inc., C&D Rigging Inc., Klick Lewis Cars, J.P. Adamsky Trucking, No. 3Z sprint car. “Hats off to my team and all of our partners. We have a big weekend ahead, and one weekend closer to competing in our own backyard. We’re excited to get rolling.”

ON DECK:
Brock Zearfoss and Brock Zearfoss Racing will continue
