POWRi WAR SPRINTS LOOK TO 2020 AND BEYOND
 

St. Louis, MO – As of the conclusion of the 2019 POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprint Car League season, POWRi and the Shuman family are announcing that going into the 2020 season, they will be stepping away from the series in a full time capacity. Both Casey and Brooke Shuman have been a part of the sprint car league since the series came under the POWRi banner in 2017. Casey will continue to assist with scheduling and will remain on in an advisory role.

“I would like to personally thank both Casey & Brooke for their hard work, dedication, and all their contributions to POWRi WAR,” said POWRi owner Kenny Brown. “We’re proud to have partnered with them in the early stages of developing our Non-Wing Sprint League. They have served as great ambassadors for our organization, through working to increase the annual race schedule and raising the purses for the driver. I’m glad to say this announcement is mutually beneficial and I want to thank them for their commitment to POWRi.”

“Brooke and I have put our very best effort into this series since purchasing it in 2015. We have been fortunate enough to meet and work with some great teams and families. The Lucas Oil POWRi WAR Sprint League and its racers have grown so much in a fairly short amount of time. I am extremely proud and grateful to everyone that has been part of it,” said Casey Shuman, “Brooke & I look forward to watching the league continue to grow in the future and seeing all those familiar faces at the track when our schedule allows.”

Shifting gears to 2020, the schedule is roughly in place, as POWRi officials have already reached out to several tracks and secured dates. 2020’s races will again be centered on the Kansas City area to help reduce traveling. Illinois will still host races, in a similar fashion to the Wildcard series of 2018. The official schedule release will be around the beginning of the New Year.

 

 

 

On-Line Tickets Just Days Away as 2018 Champion Enters Classic

It was the fairytale, hometown win, that twelve months later turned to disaster! But now 2018 Classic Champion Corey McCullagh will aim to deliver again on Australian Sprintcar Racing’s biggest stage, this time for a whole new team!

For the 2019-20 season, including the 48th running of the South West Conveyancing Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic, McCullagh will pilot the KRE Powered Cool Chassis of Victorian car-owner David Dickson, as the popular Dickson attempts to land a maiden Classic win.

The Classic highs of 2018 were coupled with a low of equal magnitude in 2019 for McCullagh. A heat race tyre malfunction resulted in an arm injury that put an early end to his Title defence, before Robbie Farr claimed victory in the 2018 Classic finale.

In 2020 McCullagh and Dickson will partner with South West Conveyancing, Brighton Volkswagon, Barwon Valley Steel, Road & River, Castrol, Demolition Man, Oval Express Magazine and Warrnambool RV and Caravan Centre.

As all race teams do in the lead up to a new season, McCullagh has dedicated many hours to preparing his teams cars and inventory, working to create a team that can deliver some success in the next few months.

One thing that is for certain is the popular Warrnambool based McCullagh and his new team will have a legion of fans cheering them on whenever they hit the track!

All race fans are reminded that the anticipated launch of on-line ticket sales for not only the 2020 South West Conveyancing Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic but every meeting of the 2019-20 season at Sungold Stadium is scheduled for October 21, 2019 at 9.00am, with all interested parties advised to keep an eye on the Club’s website and social media platforms for more information as the date approaches.

The 2020 48th edition of the South West Conveyancing Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic will be supported by the following sponsors; Performance Racegear, KRE Race Engines, GJ Gardner Homes, The Lady Bay Resort and KFC.

Copies of the 2020 Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic entry form have been forwarded to the 2019 entrants while a PDF version is available for download from the Premier Speedway website www.premierspeedway.com.au

 

 

Justin Segura Scores First Career Gun Slingers Sprint Car Series Feature Event Win at Stockton 99 Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA- Amidst a strong season with Beck Racing, Idaho driver, Justin Segura made the Gun Slingers Sprint Car Series season finale a memorable one, as he wired the field and picked up his first career win with the series.

“It is such a blast racing for this Beck Racing team and heading into the Gun Slingers finale I was poised to bring some hardware home,’ Justin Segura said. “We were really fast all night long and it made for a great night.”

By way of winning the Man of Steel Dash, Segura found himself on the front row of the final race of the season with the Gun Slingers Sprint Car Season. Looking to cap off a strong season with Beck Racing and claim Rooke of the Year honors, Segura was hard on the throttle when the race came to life.

Despite taking on a field of traditional pavement winged sprint cars aboard a converted dirt car, Segura would not be denied on this night as he hit his marks and kept the field behind him.

Poised and in control out front, Segura would keep 2019 Gun Slingers Champion, Austin Carter, behind him in second and Gordon Rogers at bay in third.

Leading flag to flag, Segura picked up the impressive win, and also capped of his Rookie of the Year campaign.

“Heading to California I told myself I wanted to bring home some hardware, and we were able to do just that,’ Segura added. “I have never been so happy to put a car in victory lane before and this is for sure going to be one I remember for a long time.”

ON TAP: Segura now readies for a showdown with the King of the Wing Series on November 9th at Irwindale Speedway and November 10th at Kern County Raceway Park.

Hagar Heading to I-30 Speedway for POWRi National Midget League Event

Inside Line Promotions - MARION, Ark. (Oct. 17, 2019) - Derek Hagar is venturing to a familiar track in a not-so-familiar car this Saturday.

Hagar will invade I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., during a POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League event. It will mark Hagar's fourth night in a midget in 2019 and the first time since early March.

"I only race a midget a couple times a year," he said. "I definitely look forward to it when I get the chance. My brother-in-law has always wanted to own one and he talked me right into it, but it's been fun so far."

Hagar last raced in this event in 2017 when he finished sixth. He's competed at I-30 Speedway many times throughout his career, which will hopefully be in his favor in the long run.

"The driving styles are totally different," he said comparing midgets to his usual winged sprint cars. "You get so used to the driving style of one car that you can forget how much of a transition it is to move to another. I usually get the hang of it again right around the time the race is ending."

Hagar enters the event looking for his 10th feature triumph of the season.

"There'll probably be 25 to 30 cars, I'm guessing," he said. "There'll definitely be some good guys there, but I'm anxious to see what we can do against them."

Kraig Kinser Enjoys Success On and Off Track With Profile by Sanford Support

Inside Line Promotions - HAUBSTADT, Ind. (Oct. 17, 2019) - Kraig Kinser will have Profile by Sanford as a primary partner this Friday during the opening night of a World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series doubleheader.

"Profile by Sanford has not only been a great partner for our team this year, but for me and Mikey (Kuemper) as well," Kinser said. "We both have used their products and lost a lot of weight. We look better and feel better, which I believe helps our performance at each race track."

Kinser has lost more than 50 pounds since beginning a weight loss program with the company in early March.

The race season is winding down with only one month remaining. The next event is Friday at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., for the FVP Platinum Battery Showdown. The weekend concludes on Saturday at Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo., for the Jason Johnson Classic presented by FK Rod Ends.

"I'm looking forward to this weekend," Kinser said. "Hopefully we'll unload fast each night. We're going to try to run as well as we can. We're also trying a few things for next year. We haven't had an opportunity to do that this year so we're going to work on some stuff the rest of this season."

Kinser ran into misfortune last weekend. Saturday's event rained out and he was caught up in an early crash during the main event at Tri-State Speedway on Sunday.

"On a restart guys piled up and there was nowhere to go," he said. "Our front end got knocked out. Unfortunately, we couldn't get it repaired on time and were stuck in the work area so we ended with a DNF."

Oct. 13 - Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Ind. - Qualifying: 17; Heat race: 8 (6); B Main: 3 (3); Feature: 23 (21).

Crockett Charges to Runner-Up Result During Fall Fling at Creek County

Inside Line Promotions - SAPULPA, Okla. (Oct. 17, 2019) - Roger Crockett hustled to his seventh podium finish in Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour competition this season during the Fall Fling finale last Saturday.

Creek County Speedway hosted the doubleheader, which was shortened to one day after Friday's opener rained out. Crockett was strong both times he hit the track on Saturday, advancing from third to second place in a heat race to kick off the action.

"We had a pretty tough heat race with (Matt) Covington on the pole and Blake (Hahn) next to me," he said. "It was important to move forward."

Crockett drew the No. 7 during the feature redraw to line up on the inside of the fourth row for the A Main.

"Our car was super, super good at the end of the race," he said. "I was trying to make sure we didn't get torn up early. The track was wet the first part of the race, but it ended up slicking off. We got a really good restart and we were able to get three of them when they got bottled up. Being overly aggressive can cost you in an instant on a track that size. There's not a ton of racing room."

Crockett made a late-race pass on Covington for the runner-up position, which increased his advantage for third place in the championship standings with only four races remaining.

"It was really important," Crockett said. "Covington is who are battling for third in points and we were able to get by him for second with a couple laps to go. I feel like we've built some momentum."

Next up Crockett and the ASCS National Tour venture to Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas, this Friday and Saturday for the 46 th annual Winter Nationals.

"Devil's Bowl has been a good track for me," he said. "I'm looking forward to going there with this new car. I anticipate it to be really good at this track."

Mallett Tallies Top Five at Creek County Speedway Fall Fling

Inside Line Promotions - SAPULPA, Okla. (Oct. 17, 2019) - Jordon Mallett capped a return to Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour action with a fifth-place finish Saturday at Creek County Speedway during the Fall Fling.

Rain cancelled the opening night of the doubleheader before Mallett produced his eighth top five of the season.

"We had a really good run," he said. "It stinks that it was only one night, but I'll take one good night of racing over none."

Mallett began the night starting on the outside front row in a heat race and he used the bottom of the track to move forward one position and take the checkered flag first. As a result, Mallett earned the third starting position in the feature following a positive feature redraw.

"I actually wish we had been better in the heat race, but overall we were better than everyone else," he said. "The track was challenging and gave us fits, but it gave us a good idea of what we needed to do for the feature."

Mallett battled between third and fifth for most of the feature. He noted the car was good on long runs and on multiple occasions he was in striking distance of the leaders before untimely cautions halted momentum. In the end Mallett settled for fifth.

"I think if we had more green flag runs we had a car capable of winning," he said. "We were much better on long runs and every time we'd catch them, it would seem the caution would come and we'd have issues getting going again. But we'll take the top five and be happy knowing we had a car capable of running up front."

Next up for Mallett will be two nights of racing at Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas, this Friday and Saturday during the 46th annual Winter Nationals.

Mallett gained 23 points on eighth place in the ASCS National Tour standings and with only four races remaining on the schedule he trails seventh by 56 markers. He's looking to use the momentum gained in Oklahoma to finish out the season strong and make up more ground in the standings.

"We made up some ground in the points and we really stabilized where we are in terms of not falling back at all," he said, "But I think we can move up as high as seventh. So we're going to shoot for the stars and try to move up as much as possible and I think we have a shot to do that at Devil's Bowl."

Dynotech Race Engines is an engine building and performance shop, based in Memphis, Tenn., operated by Ricky Stenhouse Sr.

"Ever since I have started working with Ricky (Stenhouse Sr.) he has really helped us step our program up," Mallett said. "He builds extremely good and reliable engines, which speak for themselves. Ricky has helped me get a good grasp on how to keep up with my engine program and the maintenance program. He's become a really good friend and mentor. He always has our back."

Mallett would like to thank Awakening Events, Water for Christ, Porter Commercial Refrigeration, DHR Suspension, Racing Optics, Red River Rack Company, KSE Racing Products, FK Rod Ends, Brown & Miller Racing Solutions, Sinco, Inc., D&K Farms, Autometer, Callies Racing Products, Dickerson Marine Services, Hero Graphics, Hilborn Fuel Injection, ISC Racers Tape, K&N Engineering, Lone Star Super Gas (Sunoco), Schoenfeld Headers, Simpson Race Products, Smiley's Racing Products, and Superior Bearing and Supply for their continued support.

 

 

Price Builds Momentum With Ninth-Place Finish at Creek County Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - SAPULPA, Okla. (Oct. 17, 2019) - Robbie Price brought home a ninth-place finish last Saturday during the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour Fall Fling hosted by Creek County Speedway.

Rain cancelled Friday night's opener, cutting the scheduled two-night event to one day. Price made the most of Saturday's race by posting his 17 th top 10 of the season.

"We had a really fast race car and if not for some tough luck we were right in the thick of things," he said. "But overall it was a great night and something to feel good about."

Price began the night starting sixth in a heat race. He passed three cars to finish third. As a result, Price made the feature redraw and he pulled the fourth starting position for the A Main.

"We were really good on the bottom and did well in the heat race and positioned ourselves well the rest of the night," he said. "I was feeling really good about the car and the speed we had entering the feature."

Price showed speed early and at one point he passed for third before a caution negated the pass. Following a restart where a few cars in front of him bobbled, Price went to the top of the track to avoid a potential wreck and got over the berm. That cost him several positions. With limited laps remaining, Price settled for ninth at the checkered flag.

"The car felt really good and we were in a good position to contend for a victory," he said. "But unfortunately, we had to make a drastic move to avoid a wreck and we just ran out of time to recover. But overall it was a positive weekend where we showed we can compete at this level."

Next up for Price will be two nights of racing at Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas, this Friday and Saturday during the 46th annual Winter Nationals.

Sitting firmly in the seventh position in the ASCS championship standings, Price is hoping to finish out the year strong and believes he is hitting his stride at the right time of the year.

"I feel like we get better and better every time we hit the track," he said. "If we can put a whole night together instead of flashes here and there, we'll be up front and we can finish the year out strong. I feel really confident heading into Devil's Bowl about our program."

The FVP Platinum Battery Showdown kicks off the competition on Friday at Lakeside Speedway, which is only a 40-minute drive from Brown's shop.

"Any time there's an FVP event it's exciting," he said. "They bring customers and employees we can mingle with and give them a great night of fun. It's also great to be close to home and racing at a track where we've had success. That will be a fun way to open the weekend before we race in Jason Johnson's memory the following night at Lake Ozark Speedway."

Friday at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., for the FVP Platinum Battery Showdown

"It's exciting to be close to home so we'll have friends and family there," Brown said. "We've had success and beat the Outlaws there. We've won some ASCS National Tour races there. It's right in our wheelhouse. I think it fits my style with big, wide, sweeping corners. It's a track that has always been good to us. We have a pretty good package when we go there that gives us a good baseline setup. Also, our engines run really well, especially this time of the year when the air is really good."

Saturday at Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo., for the Jason Johnson Classic presented by FK Rod Ends

Aaron Reutzel Vies for Trophy Cup Title this Weekend

Lonnie Wheatley, CLUTE, Texas (October 17, 2019) – With a second consecutive All Star Circuit of Champions title in the books for 2019, Aaron Reutzel takes aim at this weekend’s Trophy Cup title at Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, CA.

Reutzel will wheel teammate Josh Baughmans’s Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 17 for the three-day tilt that fires off Thursday night.

“I love racing at Tulare, it’s a place that just really suits my driving style when it’s up on the fence,” Reutzel says.

Reutzel captured one of his initial wins in 410-ci Sprint Car action atop the Thunderbowl clay in 2015 and then nabbed his first career World of Outlaws Sprint Car win at the same facility in 2018.

Reutzel has made a pair of Trophy Cup starts previously with a top-ten showing in the 2016 rendition of the prestigious 360-ci event.

Reutzel’s most recent action aboard the Folkens Brothers Trucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X Sprint Car netted a top-five finish at the World of Outlaws-sanctioned “National Open” at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, PA.

After a fifth-place finish in the Friday, October 4, preliminary event, Reutzel finished out the weekend with a fourth-place run in the Saturday finale.

Reutzel and the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment team overcame Friday night adversity, forced to change engines after the Dash and then proceeding to race from 12th to secure a top-five finish.

“At one point we were really rolling there and got up to fifth right away,” Reutzel says. “Then the wing valve got stuck so I couldn’t move it any and we got a little too loose at the end to gain any more.”

On Saturday, Reutzel rebounded from another early issue and was had the leaders within reach before finishing fourth.

“We got into the wall at the start and fell back to ninth,” Reutzel recalls. “We got bac up there and had third on three different occasions and a caution would come out. Then we were running down the leader after the open red, and right when we got to him the rubber laid down.”

This weekend brings a change of scenery for the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspensions entry with Trophy Cup action in California.

2019 Quick Stats: 81 races, 18 wins, 43 top-fives, 56 top-tens.

Next Up: Trophy Cup at Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, CA, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Bacon Races to Strong World of Outlaws Finish – Leffler Memorial this Weekend

Lonnie Wheatley, WINCHESTER, Ind. (October 17, 2019) – After rallying to a sixth-place finish with the NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws Sprint Car series on Sunday night at Haubstadt, Indiana’s Tri-State Speedway, it’s back to the Midget ranks for Brady Bacon this week.

“The Macho Man” will join forces with the FMR No. 76e Midget team for Thursday night’s “Jason Leffler Memorial” at Wayne County Speedway in Wayne City, IL.

It will mark Bacon’s first Midget action since dicing for the lead at early September’s “BC39” event at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Dirt Track.

Bacon enters Thursday’s action after another pair of top-ten finishes that pushes the total to 58 in 98 overall starts.

Prior to Sunday’s World of Outlaws outing, Bacon posted a seventh-place finish in USAC Sprint Car action at Lawrenceburg Speedway aboard the Hoffman Racing/Mean Green No. 69 entry on Friday, October 4, making it 25 top-tens in the last 26 series feature events. Bacon led the way early on in the “Fall Nationals” event only to cut a tire before rebounding to get back into the top ten.

Bacon followed that up by charging from the 14th starting position to capture a sixth-place Sunday night finish in WoO competition at Haubstadt.

“I didn’t feel like we were as good as we usually are at Haubstadt, but we still were able to make a good night out of it,” Bacon explains.

A winner of the “Jason Leffler Memorial” in 2016, Bacon will try to add a second win in the event on Thursday night.

Carney Off to Devil’s Bowl Winter National after STN Podium and Fall Fling Top-Ten!

Lonnie Wheatley, EL PASO, Texas (October 17, 2019) – John Carney II is finishing out the 2019 season in strong form.

After racing to a podium finish in I-30 Speedway’s Short Track Nationals finale on October 5, the driver of the Sander Construction/South Plains Auto Transport/Mesilla Valley Transportation No. J2 Sprint Car posted a top-ten finish in Saturday night’s “Fall Fling” at Creek County Speedway as Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour competition resumed.

Series action resumes with this weekend’s Devil’s Bowl Speedway Winter Nationals in Mesquite, TX, on Friday and Saturday.

Carney’s “Short Track Nationals” experience at Little Rock’s I-30 Speedway was his best yet with a runner-up finish in the Friday night preliminary and then a third-place conclusion on Saturday after leading most of the initial half of the race.

“It was a really good weekend for us,” Carney says. “The short runs on the cautions and then the red really killed us, we lost air pressure in the right rear and that hurt us.”

Carney still felt he had an opportunity to win the Saturday finale.

“I probably should have been more aggressive about moving the wing around,” Carney explains. “I went to the bottom to fend them off, then he (Blake Hahn) really got rolling around the top and I never had a chance to hear him.”

This past weekend’s Fall Fling netted a tenth-place showing after scratching his way from sixth to fourth in the heat race.

“It was hard to get anywhere in the heat, the two guys in front of me were side-by-side until the last couple of laps then I was able to get one,” Carney says. “Then starting that far back in the feature at Creek County can be a little rough. It was still fun though, it’s a place that you have to really get your elbows up.”

Carney has enjoyed past success at Devil’s Bowl, including a top-five finish during Speedweek earlier this season. He’ll look for more this weekend.

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

Quick Stats: 38 Races, 6 Wins, 20 top-fives, 25 top-tens.

Next Up: Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour at Devil’s Bowl Speedway Winter Nationals on Friday and Saturday.

Cannon McIntosh a Belle-Clair Hard Charger – The Leffler & I-30 this Week

Lonnie Wheatley, BIXBY, Okla. (October 17, 2019) – Rebounding from a Saturday night mishap at Southern Illinois Raceway, 16-year-old Cannon McIntosh showed his resiliency by rallying through Sunday night’s POWRi Midget field at Belle-Clair Speedway to earn Hard Charger honors aboard the Dave Mac Motorsports Toyota-TRD Spike No. 08 Midget.

Another pair of events await the young shoe this week with Thursday’s USAC Midget “Jason Leffler Memorial” at Wayne County Speedway in Wayne City, IL, and then another round of Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League competition at Little Rock, Arkansas’ I-30 Speedway on Saturday night.

After racing from sixth to second in Saturday night’s heat race at Marion’s Southern Illinois Speedway, McIntosh gridded the feature field third and held the position with the lead duo within sight before running afoul of a lapped car.

“He was running the middle of the track and I was up top, then he turned right at the last second getting into the turn,” McIntosh recalls. “I launched off his right rear tire and into the fence, it pretty much wiped that car out.”

Breaking out the backup for Sunday’s action at Belle-Claire Speedway, McIntosh and team were put to the test.

“The feature was about the only thing that went right for us all night,” McIntosh comments.

The team battled through a variety of issues all evening and utilized a provisional to start the main event after the car wouldn’t fire for “B” Main action.

Problem solved though and McIntosh made the most of it, slicing through the field from the 23rd starting position to capture a fourth-place finish by the time the checkered flag flew.

“We just needed a late yellow and I think we had the win, the car was working incredibly well,” McIntosh explains.

With repairs made from the weekend, McIntosh and crew look for more success in USAC and POWRi Midget action this weekend.

Along with Toyota-TRD, other marketing partners making the 2019 Cannon McIntosh slate of events possible includes Sanders and Associates, Car and Fleet, Mobil 1, Speedway Engine Development, Best Graphics, Fieldhouse Gear, Precision Inspection, Panels by Smoke, Walker Performance, Sanders Wheels, American Discount Brake and Muffler, D&N Fabrication, Darling Ingredients, PJ’s and Hinds Family.

Up Next: USAC National Midgets “Jason Leffler Memorial” at Wayne County Speedway (Wayne City, IL) on Thursday and POWRi National Midgets at I-30 Speedway (Little Rock, AR) on Saturday.

Kyle Bellm Makes First World of Outlaws Starts this Weekend

Lonnie Wheatley, NIXA, Mo. (October 17, 2019) – Kyle Bellm looks to finish out the 2019 season on a positive note with his first career starts with the NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws Sprint Car series this weekend.

Bellm will be in action aboard the No. 14k Sprint Car for Friday’s card at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, KS, and then Eldon, Missouri’s Lake Ozark Speedway on Saturday.

“This is something that we’ve looked forward to for a long time, we’re wanting to have a fun weekend to finish our year and then regroup for next season,” Bellm says.

Accomplished in the 360-ci ranks, Bellm made his first 410-ci start in late August at Farmington, Missouri’s St. Francois County Raceway and rallied from the tail of the field to post a top-ten finish.

Bellm’s first WoO appearance comes on the heels of two weekends of ASCS action including I-30 Speedway’s Short Track Nationals in Little Rock, AR, on October 4-5 and then Creek County Speedway’s Fall Fling in Sapulpa, OK, last Saturday.

Battling amongst a field of 70 Short Track Nationals, Bellm raced to a 12th-place finish in the Friday night preliminary before getting caught up in a Saturday “B” Main incident that brought an early end to the evening.

“On Friday night, we were just one mistake away from being a top-five car,” Bellm says. “Then on Saturday, nothing was clean all night. We had various problems each time out and then I had to make a move in the ‘B’ and it knocked the front end out.”

Lady Luck wasn’t riding with Bellm at Saturday’s Fall Fling.

“We drew bad and never got out of the hole,” Bellm explains.

Bellm looks to finish out the season on a positive note.

“We’re going the right direction with the car and really looking forward to this weekend,” Bellm sums up.

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

Quick Stats: 34 Races, 1 win, 6 top-fives, 15 top-tens.

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

Sprint Car Bandits Finale Ends with Wild Event at 82; 2020 Schedule Posted

Garland, TX (10/16/19) Track/Series Publicity & Event Marketing by DarinShort.com. The conclusion of the 4th season of the Sprint Car Bandits® series was held this past Saturday, October 12th at 82 Speedway in Petty, Texas with the running of the $31,500 Paul Peters Memorial event. Going into the final event, the series championship was still up for grabs, with a scant 27 points separated points leader Will Eggimann over Dale Wester, which roughly equated to 5 finishing positions that Wester needed to finish ahead of Eggimann to claim the title.

But before we jump right to the center of the cinnamon roll, let’s rewind the night as it unfolded:

Cool-ish, yet clear and calm fall weather conditions greeted the fans and 100 race teams assembled in four divisions, after a strong storm system exited the area the day before.

Recording artist and The Voice contestant Trey Rose was on hand to meet with the fans during the pre-race Sprint Car Bandits Fan Fest. Trey would also kick off opening ceremonies by singing The National Anthem before a very appreciative crowd. Click https://youtu.be/7Cn8N4W9UCY if you’d like to see the video of his performance. Trey’s appearance at the event was provided by the Sprint Car Bandits series.

Special thanks to www.facebook.com/BeesParis and www.facebook.com/DQ14471 (Applebee’s in Paris, TX and Dairy Queen on Lamar Street in Paris) for providing Sprint Car Bandits Fan Fest giveaways for fans and kids. Over 100 kids swag bags were given away during Fan Fest.

The www.KoolTrikes.com heat race winners were Will Eggimann and Casey Burkham. Burkham won his heat from the 4th starting position, which gave him enough overall points to become the www.FixYourGenerator.com High Points Award recipient – and an additional $100 from Fred Summers, sponsor of the award.

The 25-lap series championship feature would fire off with similar fashion of the last series stop at 82 Speedway, that being, the race would go green for a long distance. But on lap 23 disaster struck that all began when the left rear tire on Will Eggimann’s J&J Racing sprinter would somehow slide off its beadlock wheel causing him to lose speed going down the backstretch. Chipper Wood clipped his left side, as did the second place driver of polesitter Casey Burkham, all culminating with the #71 of Colby Estes getting crossed up and upside down just past the apex of corners 3 and 4.

During the red flag stoppage, outside front row starter and leader, Michael Day, would not be able to refire after the yellow flag came out to resume the race, forcing Day pitside for the remaining two laps.

Meanwhile, Eggimann had dropped pitside after sustaining damage on that backstretch fracas…which suddenly put Dale Wester in prime position to claim the points championship!

The event resumed with a torrid 3-car battle up front between Burkham, Stubblefield and Wester. Stubblefield briefly took the lead before Burkham would take command, while Wester would take second place from Stubblefield. But when they crossed the finish line, Burkham would end up taking home $2,100 for the win, with Stubblefield regaining second from Wester on the final lap.

When the mud clods quit flying, it appeared that Wester should have finished high enough to claim the Series title – however after adding and re-adding the points totals, Eggimann had garnered 8 more markers than Wester in the final points battle.

After the event, Dale Wester was smiling from ear to ear and commented: “I really had fun racing this series. I came to the track tonight with the attitude that I’m just going to do my best, and whatever happens, happens. And it sure was close at the end!”

A stunned Eggimann had to be towed into victory lane to receive his championship award – after thinking that his DNF was going to cost him the title. But after he reviewed the points, before and after, he had the following comments to make: “This is the first time in my racing career that I’ve been able to follow a complete series from start to finish, and a lot of that had to do with favorable economics of the Sprint Car Bandits rules package. Between the wing angle and ‘one tire all night’ rules of the ‘Bandits, not only does it make for consistently good racing, but it helps keep all the racer’s budgets regarding consumables in check…and as a byproduct, it even produces consistently competitive races.”

Eggimann continues: “All season long, faster cars have been able to advance positions on the tracks that our series go to – so clearly – this series has got a rules package that works for racers and track promoters alike, which is really refreshing when so much of sprint car racing nationwide is being controlled by high budget teams, which is not economically sustainable to the majority of the other teams. I’m thankful for the rules platform that the Sprint Car Bandits has developed, because I’m not a big budget team.”

Following Eggimann’s sentiment, Steve Golightly, 8-year executive crew chief on the #74E of Claud Estes III, comments: “Everyone knows that sprint car racing is expensive, and the Estes family regularly fields 3-4 cars at Sprint Car Bandits events. What we have found is that between the strong series purse structure and tire/wing angle rules, we’re able to keep fielding cars without burning up our racing budget.”

Golightly continues: “I just took a picture of Claud’s left rear tire after tonight’s feature race. It looks brand new. That tire has 33 laps on it from tonight, plus hot laps – and it’s the same tire we used at the last ‘Bandits event, where we had to run 45 laps due to being in the B-feature. By the time you had hot laps to it, that tire easily has 85 laps on it – and it will be used again at our next ‘Bandits race.”

In the past, co-crew chief’s on the Estes cars Doc Miller and Lonnie Bright help keep the family team hitting the track with well-prepared cars at each series event, and their past service is much appreciated. Claud would finish 2019 Series points in 3rd place. 2018 SCB series champion Colby Estes would end up in 5th place this season (after missing the opening night due to family obligations).

An open practice will be held Thursday night (October 17) with heat races for all divisions on Friday night followed by the conclusion of the events on Saturday. Group qualifying for the RUSH Late Models will be at 7 p.m. on Friday with racing starting early at 4 on Saturday. The rain date is Sunday.

"This is always a great way to end our season," said RUSH Director Vicki Emig. "Our Late Model racers are always excited to get the chance to compete at Lernerville. The car counts have always been strong and the racing at Lernerville is always some of the best of the season. Our championship annually comes down to this event. The Sportsman Modifieds have been given the opportunity to race numerous times over the past six seasons at Lernerville. It's been a great way to continue to grow this division, and we expect a large turnout this weekend. Lernerville was a very important part of getting our RUSH Sprint division off the ground in 2018, and their races this year at the track have been tremendous. We'll also reward the Lernerville RUSH Pro Stock racers on Saturday with their Manufacturers Night."

The RUSH Late Models are coming off a very successful record-setting "Bill Hendren Memorial" event presented by FK Rod Ends in conjunction with Pro Fabrication as part of the "Pittsburgher 100" at Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway two weeks ago where Kyle Lukon won $5,200. Saturday's event will pay $2,000 to-win. There will also be a $200 to-win, $150 to-start non-qualifier.

This year's "Steel City Stampede" will be the 11th edition of this huge event that includes most of the region's racing divisions all showcased in this end of the season blowout for the region. There has yet to be a repeat winner in the Crate Late Models; past winners include Josh Holtgraver (2009), Bryan Force (2010), Butch Lambert (2011), Max Blair (2012), Dennis Lunger, Jr. (2013), Chad Ruhlman (2014), Jacob Hawkins (2015), John Mollick (2016), John Waters (2017), and Colton Flinner (2018).

On the heels of three straight Sweeney Tour wins, Kyle Lukon has exploded into the points lead for the first time in his career. Lukon is up just three on defending champion, Jeremy Wonderling, who had to overtake Jason Genco last year in the finale at Lernerville to win the points. Wonderling has struggled of late with finishes of 12th or worse in four of the last five races. Michael Duritsky, Jr. has pretty much secured third in points, but would love to capture his first career Tour win at a track he runs well at. Braeden Dillinger, Ryan Frazee, and Logan Zarin are fourth through sixth in points in their first year on the Tour. Completing the top 12 points paying positions are Bill Kessler, Jason Genco, Max Blair, Kyle Murray, Chad Sines, and John Waters.

Meanwhile, the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds will join the "Steel City Stampede" for the sixth consecutive year. Greg Martin won the inaugural race in 2014, while Nick Ritchey won his first ever at Lernerville in 2015. Rocky Kugel topped what was at the time in 2016 was a record field of 29 cars. Steve Slater won the 2017 event, while last year saw teen Blaze Myers score a popular first Tour win after coming out of the B main to also win the "Futures Cup" title. The Sportsman Mods will complete their fifth season of Bicknell Touring Series competition and will be featured in an $800 to-win event.

By virtue of three wins, Garrett Krummert leads the Tour points by 26 over Jim Rasey, who is in his first year of RUSH racing. Krummert can clinch his second straight title by finishing 22nd or better on Saturday night. The Hovis Weekly Series Championship is a different story as Krummert, Chas Wolbert, and Rob Kristyak are in a three-way tie for the lead. A win by any of the three drivers will earn them the $3,000 title. If none of the three wins and one finishes second, that driver will earn the title. If none of the three finish in the two top, then Krummert wins the tiebreaker. David Kalb, Jr. has already clinched the "Futures Cup" title.

The RUSH Sportsman Modifieds have only raced once thus far this season at Lernerville. Back on July 26, Kristyak topped a 28-car field for the Weekly Series win, and will now look to perform the feat again and take the title.

The RUSH Sprints will wrap up their sophomore season this weekend racing for $800 to-win, $160 to-start. Chad Ruhlman has already clinched up his second $5,000 Bonnell's Rod Shop Championship. Ruhlman has won 10 times in 2019 including one of the two Lernerville races. Zach Morrow won the other on August 31 for the "Manufacturers Night" presented by MSD Performance, which had an all-time high 21 cars in action. Morrow, who finished third in last year's points, sits second over Brian Woodhall, who led the points for much of the season. Jeremy Weaver and Brandon Blackshear are fourth and fifth in points in their first season of Sprint Car racing.

The annual "Manufacturers Night" presented by MSD Performance for the RUSH Pro Stocks will take place on Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m. in the registration tent. The 14 drivers that competed at least six times in 2019 at Lernerville will be eligible for the $7,000 in product giveaways. There will be one prize per driver. Each driver will also receive a buy one get one free Landrum Spring for an additional total value of more than $1,000. Due to the Stampede being an "open" rules event, drivers do not need to be present or compete to be eligible to win the prizes.

FK Rod Ends "Shock the Clock Qualifying and Beat the Heat" will be utilized on Friday night for the Late Models meaning the fastest qualifier will receive $100 and all heat race winners will earn $25. The pole position dash will also be run on Friday night this year.

The Zarin Truck & Auto "$500 Club" drawings will take place on Saturday at the drivers meeting. The top 15 drivers in Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway and Dog Hollow Speedway track points that compete will be eligible for the five $100 drawings.

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

RUSH Sportsman Modified Series Officials will determine the Sherwood Racing Wheels "Man of Steel" award winner as one that bounced back from an earlier mishap to finish the event strongly each night. The selected driver will receive a certificate for a free Sherwood Racing Wheel.

The Ontime Body & Graphic "Spoiler Alert" will award a $150 spoiler to the 15th place finisher of the Late Model feature. The Dirt Defender "Defensive Drive" will go to the driver that best defended his position throughout the night in both the Late Models and Modifieds. This award chosen by RUSH Officials will award a $40 Dirt Defender product package. A Sunoco 5-Gallon Race Jug will go to the winner of each Tour race.

Kerry Madsen Posts Podium During World of Outlaws Event in Indiana

Inside Line Promotions - HAUBSTADT, Ind. (Oct. 16, 2019) - Kerry Madsen earned his 15th top-five outing of the season last Sunday during a World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series event at Tri-State Speedway.

The KI Crossbows sponsored Big Game Motorsports driver kicked off the event by setting quick time during qualifying. A runner-up result in a heat race garnered a spot into the dash. Madsen then powered from last - sixth - to fourth in the dash to line up on the outside of the second row for the main event.

"The track was a little greasy at the start of the race," he said. "I probably should have jammed the wing forward and driven harder. I got to second running the middle line. Then I got held up in traffic really bad. That's just racing."

The third-place outing was the fifth top five of the season during World of Outlaws competition for Madsen.

"If it all went our way we had a car that could possibly have won," he said. "It shows where we've come since we've put this partnership together. The more time we race together the more we're gelling. The communication is good. We know what we've got to do and it seems like every time we get out there my confidence is growing."

The team is scheduled to join the Outlaws this Friday at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., during the FVP Platinum Battery Showdown and Saturday at Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo., during the Jason Johnson Classic presented by FK Rod Ends.

Oct. 13 - Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Ind. - Qualifying: 1; Heat race: 2 (1); Dash: 4 (6); Feature: 3 (4).

Wilson Joining World of Outlaws at Lakeside and Lake Ozark This Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - WAYNESFIELD, Ohio (Oct. 16, 2019) - Greg Wilson is heading to the Midwest this weekend to join the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series for a doubleheader.

Wilson and his Hercules Tires, DNC Hydraulics, Ohio Logistics and Gear Off Road backed team will venture to Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., on Friday for the FVP Platinum Battery Showdown and to Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo., on Saturday for the Jason Johnson Classic presented by FK Rod Ends.

"I feel like from every race here on out we're not afraid to try stuff," he said. "We'll try to build and learn for next year to fix some of the issues we've had."

First up, Wilson has Hercules Tires dealership visits this Wednesday at Shadden Tire Pros in Crossville, Tenn., and Thursday at Tires & More in Russellville, Ala., from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day.

Wilson was able to make one start last weekend when he tackled the 2 nd annual Bob Hampshire Classic at Waynesfield Raceway Park.

"We qualified second quickest in our group and were leading our heat when we slid off the track," he said. "I was too free and just overdrove it. I slid across the cushion and off the track. We finished fifth and missed locking into the main event by one."

Wilson rebounded by winning the B Main. He then gained a trio of positions to finish 14th in the FAST Series main event.

"The track was pretty narrow," he said. "It rained and they had it packed down pretty good. They had more cars than anticipated, too. It ended up taking rubber partway through the feature. The beginning of the race was pretty racy and then it got one lane. The track did all the right things. It was just part of it."

QUICK RESULTS -

Oct. 12 - Waynesfield Raceway Park in Waynesfield, Ohio - Qualifying: 2; Heat race: 5 (3); B Main: 1 (1); Feature: 14 (17).

Dover Invading Devil's Bowl Winter Nationals for First Time Since 2014

Inside Line Promotions - SPRINGFIELD, Neb. (Oct. 16, 2019) - Jack Dover is making his first trek to Texas since 2014 this weekend for the 46 th annual Winter Nationals hosted by Devil's Bowl Speedway.

Dover will pilot his No. 53 on Friday and Saturday at the half-mile oval in Mesquite, Texas, during the marquee Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event.

"We've won the Winter Nationals before," he said. "It's a fun way to end the year and the track is a fun place to run at so we look forward to this trip."

It's approximately a 10-hour drive each way, but the trip has yielded good results for Dover. He captured a top 10 during the 2014 Winter Nationals, a top five in 2013, top 10s in 2012 and 2011, and the title in 2010 among other stout results at the track.

"Devil's Bowl gives you a little bit of a challenge," he said. "(Turns) one and two are different than turns three and four. You have to compensate for the car being tight in one corner and free in the other. I'm feeling pretty confident. We ran well with the ASCS National Tour drivers at Lucas Oil Speedway last month and we learned a lot. We were really competitive there and we've been competitive in the past at Devil's Bowl."

Dover enters the weekend with nine feature victories this season. He has recorded double-digit wins during six of the last seven seasons prior to 2019.

SEASON STATS -

37 races, 9 wins, 19 top fives, 26 top 10s, 32 top 15s, 35 top 20s

Schuett's Rookie Sprint Car Season Highlighted by Top Three in MOWA Standings

Inside Line Promotions - PHILO, Ill. (Oct. 16, 2019) - The Rookie of the Year Award and a third-place finish in the Built Ford Tough MOWA Sprint Series championship standings highlighted a sold first season in sprint car competition for Kyle Schuett.

"We were pretty happy with our first season in a sprint car," he said. "We met our expectations. We made every feature except for our first night out when we had a mechanical issue. We stayed out of crashes pretty much except for one night in July when we flipped at Macon. It actually went pretty smooth."

Schuett notched a number of racing highlights to go along with his podium finish in points with the MOWA Series.

"We finished third at Spoon River in just our seventh race," he said. "We also made the shows with the Outlaws and the All Stars and had two top 10s at Jacksonville. We were pretty happy with those accomplishments in our first year in a sprint car."

Schuett, whose previous racing experience was in micro sprints and midgets, found the transition to sprint cars a bit smoother than he anticipated.

"We did better early in the season than I expected," he said. "I thought we might struggle to make A Mains early in the year, but that didn't happen. Our goal was always to run all the laps and we generally accomplished that. That's the way you gain experience and that's one of your primary goals when you're a rookie."

Schuett credited strong support and guidance from others for getting his team off to a quick start, which carried on throughout the year.

"Maxim gave us a lot of help," he said. "They gave us good baseline setups for when the track was tacky, medium or slick. The people we purchased the car from also helped us a lot with the setup and they had the gears for most of the tracks we raced.

"Tim Engler was also a big help with our fuel injection and regarding how to adjust it for different tracks. Having good guidance right off the bat is a big help.

"It seemed to me that the sprint car was simpler to set up than the midget. I had confidence in our setups and felt I could focus more on driving. I also felt the sprint car suited my driving style better than the midget. Driving a sprint car is more technical than a midget, where you kind of just hold it wide open and hope it goes where you want it.

"We obviously have a lot more to learn going forward, but we feel good with where we're at following our first year."

Schuett hopes to run a more expanded schedule in 2020.

"I think we'll probably just pick and choose where we race without regards to points," he said. "We'd like to race 25-to-35 races within three to four hours of here. Just mainly race as much as we can."

Tankersley Venturing to Louisiana for USCS Doubleheader This Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - HIGHLANDS, Texas (Oct. 16, 2019) - This season has been arguably the lightest on the race schedule for Channin Tankersley, who is traveling to Louisiana this weekend.

The Old School Racing competitor will compete on Friday and Saturday at Chatham Speedway in Chatham, where he last raced during his season-opening doubleheader in March. The races this weekend are with the USCS Series.

"We've run pretty decent there and we've won there in the past," he said. "I actually got my first ASCS win there in 2008. We haven't raced there much, probably seven or eight times since then. I think we've ran third once and second twice. I think we have four or five podiums."

Tankersley placed sixth during the opening night before recording a runner-up result at the bullring in March.

"It's really fast," he said. "It's a big quarter-mile track that is generally pretty racy."

Since that season-opening weekend Tankersley only has 11 starts under his belt. However, he's recorded a trio of wins and seven top fives during that span.

"I think this is the fewest number of races I've done in a season ever," he said. "We only have a few races remaining so hopefully we can make the most of our opportunities."

SEASON STATS -

13 races, 3 wins, 8 top fives, 9 top 10s, 12 top 15s, 13 top 20s

Inside Line Promotions - CLAY, N.Y. (Oct. 16, 2019) - The season is winding down for Joe Trenca, who has a pair of 360ci winged sprint car races on tap this weekend.

"That may be it for the year," the Mucci Motorsports driver noted. "There's a couple of other races we might be able to do, but it'll depend on the weather. We'll see how this weekend goes and go from there."

The action begins on Friday at Outlaw Speedway in Dundee, N.Y., before shifting to Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pa., on Saturday.

"We're going there to win," Trenca said of Outlaw Speedway, where he has a pair of victories this season. "It's another big race. It'd be a good show to win and I think we're more than capable of it. A good starting position will be key.

"I'm excited to get back to Port Royal, too. I've never ran there in a 360. With a lot of cars there hopefully the track will slick off. That's what we're getting better at this year. Port Royal is one of the best facilities around and the staff is great so we always look forward to racing there."

Trenca has already set new season-best marks for wins, top fives and top 10s in a year during his 2019 campaign.

SEASON STATS -

28 races, 2 wins, 11 top fives, 16 top 10s, 21 top 15s, 27 top 20s

Podium for Covington at Creek

CG Motorsports-Glenpool, OK (Oct. 16th, 2019) Matt Covington came home 3rd at Creek County Speedway during the John Christner Fall Fling after his 2nd place run and charge was halted by a power steering issue during feature.

The 2-day event was shortened to Saturday night only for the Lucas Oil National tour after damp, cold weather invaded the speedway grounds on Friday.

Saturday, Covington took advantage of a pole position pill draw and won his heat race, earning a spot in the night’s re-draw. He pulled the 6th pill for the feature.

By the first caution early in the feature, Covington had already worked his way forward from 6th to 2nd. Pressuring as the race resumed, Matt was able to pull up on the leader in traffic before the power steering blew. For the remainder of the race, he had to wrestle the steering wheel for control of his machine to survive the race. His hold on the runner-up spot slipped in the last few laps, taken by Roger Crocket, placing him 3rd as he crossed the finished line.

“We had another strong run at Creek,” stated Matt. “I knew we had our work cut out for us with Sam on the pole and us starting 6th. I was able to work into 2nd pretty early and from there, we started gaining on Sam and closing the gap as we raced through traffic. But then my power steering gave out. Luckily there was a late caution that gave my arms a break and saved our good finish. We’re pretty sure it was a seal that got worn out and spiked during the last few races from some of the previous accidents. But I rarely have any issues with my steering and the KSE guys are great at taking care of us and will get it rebuilt. I was disappointed when it faded and started puking fluid on me though, I’d have liked to kept racing Sam there and see what we had. But Devil’s Bowl is up this weekend and that’s one of my favorite tracks. Hopefully we can make it up by having a good run there.”

Up next for Matt and the ASCS Lucas Oil National Tour is a two-night stop at Devil’s Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, TX for action on Oct. 18th and 19th.

Matt and his CG Motorsports team would like to thank and mention all partners who have helped make this year and the 2019 season possible. We look forward to the continued relationship throughout the year, along with future seasons to come: Triple X Chassis, A-Rock Materials, Oilfield Equipment and Manufacturing, All-Star Performance, Outlaw Wings, Winters Performance, DMI Components, Smiley’s Racing Products, Hoosier Tire, Keizer Wheels, PAC Racing Springs, Lucas Oil Racing Products, Factor 1 Racing, Wilwood Brakes, Smith Titanium, Best Graphics, Simpson Race Products, Shark Racing Engines, Huggins Cams, Bob Hurley RV, Eaton Industrial, Hot Rod Powder Coating, Rod End Supply, Maxwell Oil, Schoenfeld Headers, CSI Shocks, KSE Steering, STW Trailer sales, Edison Auto Body, Miller Truck Lines, Brodix Cylinder Heads, Swindell Bleaders, and T&L Foundry.

Bogucki Ready to Rebound at Devil's Bowl Winter Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - SAPULPA, Okla. (Oct. 16, 2019) - Scott Bogucki is excited to get back to Devil's Bowl Speedway this weekend for the 46 th annual Winter Nationals, which is the next Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour doubleheader.

Last weekend's Fall Fling doubleheader at Creek County Speedway was shortened to one day after Friday's opener rained out. Bogucki drove his SawBlade.com sponsored sprint car from third to second in his heat race and he rolled off eighth in Saturday's feature.

"I got a concussion a month ago and a lot of people told me my seat might have contributed to it," he said. "So we put a new car together with a different seat last weekend and needless to say I didn't like it. I never got comfortable in the car. My elbows hit the sides. I was miserable and the results showed.

"I would rather be comfortable and fast and take the risks rather than be slow and uncomfortable."

Bogucki was credited with a 12th-place finish.

"You can't get hurt running slow right?" he laughed.

Bogucki ranks fifth in the ASCS National Tour championship standings with just four races remaining in the 2019 season. The next two events are Friday and Saturday at the half-mile oval in Mesquite, Texas.

"I'm excited to get back to Devil's Bowl," he said. "We won there last year and started on the front row earlier this year only to have brake issues and finish seventh. We are really good there and I put my old seat back in so I'm pumped up to try and climb back into the top three in points these last four shows."

QUICK RESULTS -

Oct. 12 - Creek County Speedway in Sapulpa, Okla. - Heat race: 2 (3); Feature: 12 (8).

SEASON STATS -

33 races, 2 wins, 10 top fives, 17 top 10s, 20 top 15s, 24 top 20s

"I want thank Jared Sewell and JJS Mechanical for giving me a chance to drive their car at the Short Track Nationals (at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark.) a couple of weeks ago; we had a top-five car for sure, but the motor broke," Bogucki said. "I'm so appreciative of SawBlade and all my other sponsors for sticking with me so that I can live out my dream. It means the world to me to have such great people and companies behind me."

Bogucki would also like to thank Dissolvalloy, Ostrich Race Engines, KW Motorsports, Smith Titanium, Rod End Supply, Weld Wheels, JJS Mechanical Inc., HRP Wings, Momentum Suspension, Porker Transport, Howard Law and Findley and Sons for their continued support.

 

 

Hill Looking Forward to Winter Nationals After Recent Challenges

Inside Line Promotions - SAPULPA, Okla. (Oct. 16, 2019) - Rain and a tough draw dampened last weekend at Creek County Speedway for Alex Hill, who invaded the bullring for a Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event.

"We had a good car and it didn't go too bad," said Hill, regarding Saturday night's racing after Friday's scheduled front end of the doubleheader was canceled due to rain. "The track was kind of tough to pass on, so we mainly just held our position. The car was in one piece so we were happy about that with the way things have gone the last couple of races."

Hill started fifth and finished sixth in her heat race.

"There was a good three-car battle in front of me and I was right there with them," she said. "The track was a bit rough and I wasn't able to get past anyone."

She rolled off seventh in the B Main and finished eighth.

"The bottom was the place to run and that's where everyone was," she said. "I was just kind of waiting for someone to make a mistake, but it didn't happen."

Hill, who exited the feature early after using a provisional, is looking forward to this weekend's 46th annual Winter Nationals at Devil's Bowl Speedway. The half-mile oval in Mesquite, Texas, is a track she finds more to her liking.

"I'm looking forward to racing at Devil's Bowl this weekend," she said. "It's one of my favorite tracks, but we haven't been able to race there much recently because of the weather.

"We haven't done real well lately and part of that is because the tracks haven't been the type I do best on. Devil's Bowl is a type of track I generally do better on so I'm anxious to return there."

QUICK RESULTS -

Oct. 12 - Creek County Speedway in Sapulpa, Okla. - Heat race: 6 (5); B Main: 8 (7); Feature: DNF (23).

Helms Caps Career With Top-10 Outing at Bob Hampshire Classic

Inside Line Promotions - WAYNESFIELD, Ohio (Oct. 16, 2019) - Caleb Helms is at peace with his recent decision to retire from actively pursuing racing opportunities.

Helms made the final start of his career in his family owned sprint car last Saturday at Waynesfield Raceway Park, where he captured a top-10 finish during the 2nd annual Bob Hampshire Classic.

"I'm so invested into our family as well as our family company," he said. "I don't want to race if I'm not committed to it and I don't have the time to invest in it. I'm happy with the decision."

A leak in the power steering line hampered Helms early on Saturday as he qualified sixth quickest in his group. A charge from sixth to third in a heat race locked him into the 13th starting position for the main event.

"We got to 11th pretty quick and then someone fell out so we finished 10th," he said. "There wasn't a lot of passing. We were a little too tight for the feature and couldn't rotate as good as we needed to. We had a good car and were rolling pretty good, especially after just putting that car back together.

"I had fun and enjoyed it. We were racing and competitive. I was satisfied with running that night like it was my last night. We raced really hard to get into the feature and were racing side by side with people. That was my favorite part, racing close and hard and moving forward."

QUICK RESULTS -

Oct. 12 - Waynesfield Raceway Park in Waynesfield, Ohio - Qualifying: 6; Heat race: 3 (6); Feature: 10 (13).

Up to Speed: FVP Platinum Battery Showdown at Lakeside Speedway

KANSAS CITY, Kan. — October 15, 2019 — The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series will visit Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City for the 10th consecutive year to Lakeside on Friday, October 18 for the FVP Platinum Battery Showdown. Daryn Pittman was victorious in the event last year, which marked his second career win at Lakeside but first since 2003. The FVP Platinum Battery Showdown again coincides with the NASCAR weekend at Kansas Speedway, which is less than 10 miles from Lakeside Speedway. This edition of Up to Speed sets the stage for the Outlaws visit to Lakeside.

Special guest

Kasey Kahne will be at Lakeside Speedway, signing autographs from 4-5 p.m. on race day. The retired NASCAR star will also watch his Kasey Kahne Racing No. 49 compete, as they contend for the World of Outlaws championship. Kahne won a title as a car owner in 2013, with Daryn Pittman behind the wheel on the Outlaws tour.

The track

Lakeside Speedway is a semi-banked four-tenths-mile. The track record of 13.304-seconds was established by Paul McMahan on June 7, 2014.

Past winners

Daryn Pittman was the class of the field last year at Lakeside Speedway, leading from start-to-finish to earn the second win of his career at the track.

Brian Brown scored a very popular win in 2017 at Lakeside, which is his home track. The veteran driver led the opening seven laps from the pole. Kerry Madsen then got by him on the eighth circuit and opened a commanding lead of nearly nine-seconds, only to have a flat tire with less than 10 laps to go. Brown inherited the lead at this point and would pace the final 10 laps to score the win.

Brad Sweet won for the first time at Lakeside Speedway in 2016. Donny Schatz, the 10-time and defending series champion, won for the first time at Lakeside Speedway in 2015.

Consistency is key

Of the active, full-time drivers with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series, Donny Schatz has been the most consistent at Lakeside Speedway. Dating back to 2001, he has 10 top-10 finishes in 12 starts. Schatz has been on the podium in three of his last four appearances at Lakeside.

Near the front

Sheldon Haudenschild has finished on the podium in both of his career starts at Lakeside. In his debut at the track in 2017, he ran second, after a thrilling duel with his father, Hall of Famer, Jac Haudenschild, during the early portions of the race. Last year, the younger Haudenschild ran third at Lakeside.

In the top-10

Daryn Pittman, Brad Sweet and Shane Stewart have all finished in the top-10 in each and every World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series race they have competed in at Lakeside Speedway. Pittman began his streak in 2002, with a seventh-place finish. Along with his two wins, the 2013 series champion has four other top-five finishes. Sweet is a perfect six-for-six in top-10 runs, with his best showing, a win in 2016. Stewart, who made his Lakeside debut in 2003, has four top-10 finishes in the same number of starts. He finished a career-best fourth at the track last year.

A handful of starts

David Gravel, Logan Schuchart and Jacob Allen have all made five starts at Lakeside Speedway. Schuchart has a trio of top-10 finishes, including a third-place showing in 2016 to lead the group. Schuchart was running second last year at Lakeside, when a mechanical problem ended his night on the 12th lap. Gravel has two top-10, with a seventh-place effort in 2017, the best of his starts.

A steady presence

Kraig Kinser and Jason Sides have each made nine starts in their respective careers with the Outlaws at Lakeside Speedway, which is second only to Donny Schatz. Kinser finished a career-best second at Lakeside in 2012 and has four top-10 runs in his career at the track. Sides also has a runner-up finish, with that coming in 2013 at the track. Sides finished seventh at Lakeside last year.

Moving on up

Ian Madsen and Brent Marks continue to better their finishing positions each time they visit Lakeside Speedway. Madsen, who has now made five starts at the track, finished a career-best fourth last year. Marks, who has made just two appearances at the track, improved his finish from 2017 to record a top-10 run last season.

Another new track

Carson Macedo, the leading contender for the Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year Award this season, will be seeing Lakeside Speedway for the first time. The Californian has visited numerous tracks for the first time this year as he continues his rookie season aboard the No. 2 for Kyle Larson Racing. Macedo has four wins thus far, during his rookie campaign.

Tickets for the FVP Platinum Battery Showdown, featuring the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kansas on Friday, October 18 can be purchased online at slspromotions.ticketforce.com or by calling SLS Promotions at 815-344-2023 and at the track on race day.

Madsen and KCP Racing Back In Top-5 With World Of Outlaws at Tri-State Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA- Ian Madsen and his KCP Racing team bounced back from a tough National Open weekend, and charged from 10th to fourth with the World of Outlaws on Sunday night at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, IN.

“Sunday was a good night for our team, really a good run for us coming off a tough weekend,” Ian Madsen said. “The first few laps of the race were a little wild with a trio of wrecks, but once the race got going I felt we were really good.”

Timing the Logan Contractors Supply, Inc./Aspen Aire/Royal Flooring backed No. 18 entry in 10th quickest in qualifying time trials, the St. Marys, NSW driver would pick up a fourth place finish in his heat race.

Taking the green flag from the 10th starting spot, Madsen would pick up a couple of early positions, though the race’s first 12 laps was mired by a trio of caution flags. Once they field came back to green on lap 12, the duration of the 40-lap affair would run non stop and would allow Madsen to work his way forward.

Running much better on the bullrings in 2019 than in years past, Madsen was able to slice an dice his way forward on the ever changing Tri-State Speedway surface.

Mixing it up with older brother Kerry, and a charging Sheldon Haudenschild late, Madsen would hold a spot inside the Top-5 as he ran in fourth. Pestering K. Madsen for the final spot on the podium, Madsen would close the night out with a fourth place run.

“With Saturday getting rained out, it was good to still get a race in and get our confidence back up heading into the final month of the season,” Madsen said. “My guys work so hard, and we’ve really been consistent in the Top-5 lately, and hopefully we can turn these runs into a win or two before the season ends.”

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

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-73, Wins-1, Top-5’s- 16, Top 10’s-38

Michael 15th in Bob Hampshire Classic; ASCS Texas start next

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

FREMONT, Ohio (October 14, 2019) – Despite falling short of matching his Rick Ferkel Classic result at Waynesfield Raceway Park, T.J. Michael’s outcome during the second running of the Bob Hampshire Classic was respectable in its own right, eventually ending his night 15th in the running order with 39 cars checked-in at the high-banked quarter-mile.

Michael, driver of the Michael Motorsports/Advanced Architectural Stone/Crown Battery/Fremont Fence Company/Pro-Tech Services/Wood Heating and Air Conditioning/Kear’s Speed Shop/Wings Unlimited/Soul Fully Rooted/Big D’s Pizza/No. 8M sprint car, kicked things off at Waynesfield with a third place performance during his respective heat race, setting the stage for his seventh row starting spot for the 50-lap/$5,630-to-win main event.

“We were confident heading into Saturday. Things just didn’t play out like they did last time,” T.J. Michael explained, who earned $5,000 by means of his Rick Ferkel Classic victory in early August. “Regardless, it was a great season. I can’t thank my team and my family enough for their hard work and dedication. We accomplished a lot of great results this summer. I’m confident things will only improve from here.”

Although his season in Ohio is complete, Michael is far from finished. In fact, the ‘Texas Traveler’ will continue his 2019 season with a two-race weekend in Texas, joining the ASCS National Tour during a two-day stint at Texas Motor Speedway on October 31 and November 1. With some added help from Mike Melton, Michael will attempt to earn a first-ever ASCS triumph during his campaign in The Lone Star State.

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

SHREVE, Ohio (October 14, 2019) – Trevor Baker’s visit to Waynesfield Raceway Park for the annual Bob Hampshire Classic was short, but the determination to succeed still lingers, already looking ahead to the near-eight hour jaunt to Concord, North Carolina, for the annual World Finals featuring the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series.

Matt Westfall earns top-ten for Ray Marshall during final start of 2019 season

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

FOREST, Ohio (October 14, 2019) – Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports put together an impressive campaign in 2019, complete with not only six victories, but also a Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS) championship, a first-ever for Westfall during a first-ever attempt. Westfall and Marshall acquired four Series victories during their championship march most recently during a visit to Atomic Speedway on Saturday, October 5.

Although the Forest, Ohio-based race outfit was unable to cap their season with another trip to victory lane, a top-ten performance was attained, this time finishing eighth during the BOSS/non-wing segment of the Bob Hampshire Classic at Waynesfield Raceway Park on Saturday, October 12.

Westfall kicked-off his Hampshire Classic visit with the second fastest time during qualifying time trials, finishing third during his respective heat race soon thereafter.

“I think ending our season with a win was the ultimate goal, but to cap a consistent season with another top-ten finish is pretty special. I can’t thank Ray Marshall and the entire team enough for their hard work in 2019,” Matt Westfall expressed. “I’m excited to see what the future brings.”

“Matt (Westfall) did a great job. I’m proud of what this team was able to accomplish,” Ray Marshall said, owner of the Ray Marshall Motorsports/Buckeye Machine Fabricators, Inc./Crazy Lady Restaurant and Bar/Hempy Water/DPI Ink/No. 33M sprint car, known by many as ‘Bumblebee Express.’ “It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to put a season like we had together. We were privileged enough to have a prime recipe for success.”

With their 2019 season officially in the books, Ray Marshall Motorsports will begin the tough task of tearing down and rebuilding for the new year. A 2020 plan of attack will be unveiled in the near-future.

Marks earns top-ten during Sunday visit to Tri-State; Kansas and Missouri ahead

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

MYERSTOWN, Pa. (October 14, 2019) – Fresh off of his Williams Grove Speedway National Open triumph worth $65,000, the ‘Myerstown Missile’ Brent Marks continued his 2019 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series campaign with a visit to southern Indiana, this time entering action at the always-racey Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt on Sunday, October 13.

Marks’ visit to the Hoosier State proved successful for the third-year Outlaw, eventually acquiring his 22nd World of Outlaws top-ten finish of the year by finishing seventh after starting second on the 40-lap grid. His route to a top-ten was just as impressive as the final outcome, as Marks timed fourth quick overall, winning his respective heat race before finishing second in the evening dash shortly thereafter.

“It was a solid night at Tri-State. We tried our best to put our National Open momentum to the test and it almost worked out. It was another great effort by my team,” Brent Marks said, driver of the Brent Marks Racing/M&M Painting & Construction/BAPS Auto Paint & Supply/Eagle Hotel/No. 19 sprint car. “We still have a lot of racing left on our calendar. Another win is certainly not out of the question. That’s what we are out here to do.”

Zearfoss finds top-five twice at BAPS Motor Speedway

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

JONESTOWN, Pa. (October 14, 2019) – Earning a top-five finish is challenging, especially in Central Pennsylvania, but to attain a top-five finish during action in two divisions at the same facility, that requires an entirely different level of focus and determination. Suffice it to say, Jonestown, Pennsylvania’s Brock Zearfoss reached that level, eventually capping his evening at BAPS Motor Speedway on Saturday, October 12, with a pair of fourth place outcomes.

Zearfoss, who drove Ryan Linder’s X-1 Race Cars No. 9 during 410 competition at BAPS Motor Speedway on Saturday, as well as his own No. 3Z during 358/360 URC Challenge competition on the same night, acquired his pair of fourth place outcomes from rows three and four, respectively, highlighting each of his starts with a jump from seventh to fourth during URC action. In fact, Zearfoss was as high as third in the running order before settling for just one spot off the podium.

Brock Zearfoss and Ryan Linder’s potential was much greater than their final finish during 410 action on Saturday, but throttle return issues hindered their campaign and limited their progress from sixth on the grid.

“It was a fun weekend. I can’t thank Ryan Linder enough for the opportunity. The speed was definitely there, we just ran into some dumb mechanical luck.

Carrick 13th on Sunday After Saturday Night Contact Ends Strong Run

PETERSEN MEDIA: Despite Mother Nature trying her best to wash the weekend of racing in Illinois out for Tanner Carrick and his Keith Kunz Motorsports team, both shows were able to get in as Carrick would finish 13th on Sunday night at Belle-Clair Speedway after contact while battling for the lead late on Saturday night at Southern Illinois Raceway would cut his race short.

“Saturday night we were really good,” Tanner Carrick said. “Unfortunately we got together with Tyler Courtney while battling for the lead and it knocked the front end out and ended our night.”

With Friday’s regularly scheduled race at Belle-Clair getting pushed to Sunday, Saturday night at Southern Illinois Raceway would kick the weekend off.

SIR officials would do a great job of the getting the facility ready after a couple of days of rain, but it would lead to a hooked up and fast surface for the Lucas Oil POWRi Midgets.

Picking up a win in his heat race, Carrick would move to the feature event where he found himself in the fourth row to kick the race off. On the locked down surface, Carrick had his elbows up as he patiently worked his way into the Top-5.

Getting into third just before the race’s halfway point, Carrick would get past KKM teammate, Jesse Colwell and take over the second position as he chased after Courtney who was out front and setting the pace.

Battling hard for the top spot, Courtney and Carrick would get together on the 23rd lap and somehow continue on for another lap until Carrick’s night came to an end as he slowed with front end damage from the contact.

Moving to Belle-Clair Speedway on Sunday night after rain delayed the show that was scheduled for Friday, Carrick would line up fifth in his heat race and work his way up to finish 3rd.

When points were tabulated, Carrick would safely be locked into the feature event, though he would have his work cut out for himself as he took the green flag from the 11th starting position.

Mired in traffic from the drop of the green flag, Carrick would soon find himself battling a break issue on his KKM mount. Doing what he could in traffic, Carrick would drop a couple of positions over the course of the race before he capped his weekend off with a 13th place finish.

“Kind of bummed with how Saturday ended, but I have to thank the guys for giving me a car that was good enough to win,” Carrick said. “Thanks to all of my KKM supporters who make this all possible.”

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

2019 BY THE NUMBERS- Starts-48, Wins-2, Top 5’s-11, Top 10’s-26

ON TAP: Carrick will be in action this coming weekend at Wayne City on Thursday night and then in Haubstadt, IN on Saturday night.

Ryan Bernal and Tarlton Motorsports Seventh at Cotton Classic

PETERSEN MEDIA- Back in action with Tarlton Motorsports on Saturday night for the penultimate King of the West race of the season, Ryan Bernal would go to work at Keller Auto Speedway during the Cotton Classic and garner a seventh place finish.

“Overall I thought it was a pretty good night for our team,” Ryan Bernal said. “The track was pretty locked down all night long which made things kind of tricky, but in the feature you could move around a little I just didn’t do a great job on the long runs.”

Timing the Tarlton and Son, Inc./Executive Auto Sales/Pabco Gypsum backed No. 21 machine in sixth fastest in qualifying amongst the 21 cars that were checked in for action, the Hollister, CA driver would pick up a fourth place finish in heat race competition.

Just missing out on points for the Sunny Valley Bacon Dash, Bernal would move into the 30-lap feature event where he would roll off of the starting grid from the eighth position.

On the hooked up Keller Auto Speedway surface, Bernal would keep the famed black machine well inside the Top-10 as he jockeyed for position with the likes of Willie Croft, DJ Netto and Dominic Scelzi.

With the laps clicking off quickly on the lightening fast surface, the race was over quickly as Bernal picked up his 18thTop-10 of the year with his seventh place finish.

“I can’t thank the Tarlton family enough for this opportunity, as well as Paul Baines and all the guys who work on this car,” Bernal said.

Tarlton Motorsports would like to thank Tarlton and Son, Inc., Executive Auto Sales, Pabco Gypsum, Bandy and Associates, NOS Energy Drink, All Star Performance, and BG Lubricants for their support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races: 27, Wins: 0, Top 5’s: 9, Top 10’s: 18.

ON TAP: Tarlton Motorsports will be in action this weekend at the Trophy Cup in Tulare, CA with both Tim Shaffer and Michael Kofoid handling the driving duties.

 

 

Mid Race Contact Derails Kyle Hirst’s Charge on Saturday Night

PETERSEN MEDIA: Getting off to a bit of a slow start on Saturday night in Hanford, CA, a mid-race tangle would cut Kyle Hirst’s charge through the field short as damage relegated him to an 18th place finish at the Cotton Classic.

“We got off to a little bit of a slow start on Saturday night, but in the feature we came to life and we got to charging our way through the field,” Hirst said. “Unfortunately a car got out of shape in front of us, and I thought I cleared him but we hooked him with our right rear and it caused enough damage to end our night.”

Getting knocked out of the heat race inversion by the last car in his group to qualify, Hirst would end up fifth fastest aboard the Tiner Hirst Enterprise/Larry Davis Farms/GP Development machine, and in the third row of his heat race.

On a locked down racing surface in heat race action, KH would finish in the sixth position and would be forced into the ‘B’ main for one last chance to transfer into the ‘A’.

Battling with THE teammate, Ben Worth, Hirst would finish second in the ‘B’, and line himself up in the 22nd starting position for the 30-lap Cotton Classic feature event.

With the track still extremely fast, and tough to pass on, Hirst was able to make it work for him as he looked to work his way through the field as he is in a tight points battle for the series crown.

Able to crack the Top-10, Hirst would get into the ninth position at the race’s halfway point.

On the 17th circuit, a fellow competitor would get sideways in front of him and just catching some contact to his right rear corner, the damage would be too much to repair in the work area, and Hirst’s night would come to an early end.

“It’s a tough way to end our night, but I have to thank all of the guys in the THE pit for working so hard all night long,” Hirst said. “Things should be exciting at Stockton for this Championship battle, but our gameplan stays the same. We will show up and try to win the race and let things fall as they may.”

The Tiner Hirst Enterprise Racing team would like to thank Tiner Hirst Enterprise, Larry Davis Farms, GP Development, Wright Process Systems, Fisher Racing Engines, SRP, Wilwood, XYZ Machine, DMI, HRP, Sway Away, Kevin Sharrah Designs, Prior Engineering, System One Pro Ignition, Sweet Manufacturing, Sway Away, Schoenfeld, Warehouse Paint, and Roseville Precision for their continued support.

Dominic Scelzi Charges to 5th at Cotton Classic

PETERSEN MEDIA- Though Saturday night’s Cotton Classic didn’t get off to the start that Dominic Scelzi and Roth Motorsports were hoping for, Scelzi rebounded well as he charged to a fifth place finish and is well in contention for the Championship heading into the season finale in Stockton, CA in November.

“I’ll take the Top-5 and the good points night after the start we got off to,” Dominic Scelzi said. “Thanks to Dennis and Teresa Roth, and all the guys for working hard and putting us in position to bounce back as the night went along.”

Timing the Roth Enterprises/HR Livestock Transportation/Jason, Tara, and Cole Roth Cattle Co. No. 83 machine in 16th fastest in time trials, Scelzi would pick up a fourth place finish in his heat race which would place him in the 16th starting position for the 30-lap Cotton Classic feature event.

With the track extremely fast and hard to pass on all night long, it would widen out a little during the 360ci feature event, and create some passing for the 410ci feature which would play to Scelzi’s advantage.

From the eighth row, the Fresno, CA driver would work his way forward in a race that ripped of laps in torrid fashion. Able to quickly race his way into the Top-10, Scelzi would continue to work hard as he made his way towards the top-five.

When the fast paced 30-lap affair was over, Scelzi found himself in the fifth position, and just seven points behind both DJ Netto and Bud Kaeding heading into the KWS season finale on November 2nd in Stockton, CA.

“We did a great job as a team, and even managed to gain a point, and still be in contention to pull this off at Stockton Dirt Track in a couple of weeks,” Dominic Scelzi added. “Before we get to that point, we have Trophy Cup this week, and it is a race that means a lot to this team, and myself, and I am very excited. Again, huge thanks to Dennis and Teresa Roth, and everyone who lends a hand on this car.”

The Roth Motorsports team would like to thank Roth Enterprises, HR Livestock Transportation, Jason, Tara, And Cole Roth Cattle Co., Roth Investments, FK Rod Ends, Weld Wheels, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, Kent Performance, Kaeding Performance, and Smith Titanium for their support in 2019.

Willie Croft Captures KWS Top-10 as Part Failure Knocks Him out of SCCT Feature with C&M Motorsports

PETERSEN MEDIA- Taking part in both the Sprint Car Challenge Tour and King of the West portions of the Cotton Classic, a parts failure would end Willie Croft’s night in the SCCT feature as he piloted the C&M Motorsports entry on this night before picking up an eighth place finish in the KWS feature.

“I have to thank Cody and Mandi for the opportunity to run their car on Saturday night, I wish we would have had some luck on our side,” Willie Croft said. “I also have to thank my guys for working hard and keeping up with everything on a pretty busy night.”

In Sprint Car Challenge Tour action, Croft timed the Moorefield Construction/PT Shocks/Swartz Diesel/Alturas Tire No. 7c machine in sixth fastest in qualifying time trials.

With some grease still on the surface in heat race action, Croft would pick up an important position as his fifth place finish moved him directly into the 30-lap feature event.

Taking the green flag from the 19th starting position, Croft would pick up a couple of early positions, though the heavy track made passing difficult. Bad luck struck Croft and C&M Motorsports on the eighth lap as a part failure would end the team’s night.

In KWS action, Croft got things kicked off by timing the Holey Smokes/BBQ/Brown and Miller/ButlerBuilt backed machine in second fastest amidst the 21 cars checked in for the series’ penultimate event of the year.

Just as it was during 360ci heats, a hooked up surface in KWS heats made passing very premium. Finishing fourth in his heat, Croft would have enough points to lock into the six-lap Dash.

Finishing fifth in the Dash, the Roseville, CA driver took the green flag from the third row for the 30-lap feature event.

In a fast paced feature event, the track wouldn’t go away as much as Croft and his team had banked on. With the car on the tight side, things would become difficult as the track offered some ruts and holes to maneuver though.

Keeping his machine afloat in the Top-10, Croft would close his night in Hanford, CA out with an eighth place finish.

“Again, big thanks to Cody and Mandi for the opportunity, and everyone associated with my team for their hard work,” Croft said. “Would have liked to have had better nights in both cars, but now we just turn our attention to Trophy Cup and see what we can do this week.”

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

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Races-50, Wins-0, Top 5’s-11, Top 10’s-24.

ON TAP: Willie Croft will be in Tulare, CA this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday for the Trophy Cup.

C&M Motorsports will also be back in action at the Trophy Cup this weekend as Arkansas resident, Tim Crawley will handle the driving duties.

Becker 4th at Cotton Classic with Monhoff Racing

PETERSEN MEDIA- Fresh off of a dominating run at the Adobe Cup, Sean Becker and Monhoff Racing returned to action on Saturday night where they picked up a fourth place finish with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour at Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, CA during the Cotton Classic.

With 33 SCCT cars checked in for battle in the series’ penultimate event of the year, Becker would time in third quickest in his qualifying group. By way of his time, ‘The Shark’ would take the green flag for him heat race from the front row, and took advantage of the starting position.

On the heavy racing surface, Becker jumped out to the early lead and never looked back as he picked off the win and himself eligible for the High Sierra Industries Dash.

Pulling the pill, Becker would lose a couple of positions in the six-lap showdown as a third place finish placed him in the third row for the 30-lap Cotton Classic feature event.

With the surface still pull of plenty of moisture, it would create a hammer down feature event as Becker was up in the mix battling with the likes of Justyn Cox and Cole Macedo for the top spot.

Making it a three car battle for the top spot as the leaders got into traffic on a couple of occasions, untimely cautions would slow his progress and would give Macedo open track.

In the closing stages of the race, a charging Jac Haudenschild would make some things happen for himself and actually got Becker for the final spot on the podium as the Roseville, CA driver capped his night with a fourth place finish.

Amidst a wild and crazy night, Becker made some big headway in the race for the SCCT Championship and sits just 13 markers back of the top spot heading into the season finale on November 2nd at Stockton Dirt Track.

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-45, Wins-8, Top 5’s- 20, Top-10’s- 33

ON TAP: Becker is still hoping to put together a ride for this weekend’s Trophy Cup, but as of now his next race will be on Friday, November 1st in Stockton, CA with Worden Family Racing, before climbing back in the Monhoff Racing No. 88 entry on Saturday November 2nd for the SCCT Finale at Stockton Dirt Track.

Justyn Cox Second at Cotton Classic

PETERSEN MEDIA: Climbing back aboard the Cox Family Racing No. 31c on Saturday night, Justyn Cox would battle with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour at the Cotton Classic and would come home with his third consecutive runner up finish with the series.

“We have been really consistent with the SCCT during these last few races, but I would love to get us one spot better,” Justyn Cox said. “We had the car to do it on Saturday, but we had a really bad stumble that got worse as the engine built up heat and restarts just killed us.”

Cox got his night off to a great start as he timed the Michael David Winery/Five Window Beer Company/MDW Sports backed No. 31c machine in fastest in his qualifying group.

On a the hooked up surface that still had some grease on it in heat race action, Cox’s third place finish would be good enough to move him into both the Dash as well as the feature event.

Battling with Cole Macedo in the Dash, Cox would finish second in the six lap showdown, and put himself on the pole for the 34th Annual Cotton Classic feature event.

With the track still plenty fast, Cox would get the jump when the action went green as he set the pace early only to see a slew of stoppages hinder the race’s flow.

As restarts were not kind to Cox as he engine would stumble bad as he got back on the throttle, a lap 14 restart saw Cole Macedo get by him and take over the race’s top spot.

Chasing after Macedo and also battling with Sean Becker, things would get interesting as lap traffic approached but untimely cautions would continue to keep the leaders from getting too deep into traffic.

A couple of late restarts would see Macedo get away from Cox time and time again, and on this night, Cox would settle for second as the checkered flag flew.

“We kept trying to get the stumble out all night, but we couldn’t quite make it happen,” Cox said. “Thanks to my guys, it was kind of a weird main, but still a successful night for our team.”

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

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Races-46, Wins-5, Top 5’s-19, Top 10’s-25

ON TAP: Justyn Cox returns to the seat of the Rutz Racing No. 8r this Thursday-Saturday in Tulare, CA for the 26th Annual Trophy Cup.

 

 

Austin Liggett Tops Adobe Cup at Petaluma Speedway for 9th Win of Season

PETERSEN MEDIA: After numerous second place finishes at Petaluma Speedway over the years, Austin Liggett was able to break the streak on Saturday night as he topped the action with the USAC West Coast 360 Series and picked up his first career win at the Speedway, and his ninth of the season, as he claimed the Adobe Cup.

“It feel pretty good to finally grab a win at Petaluma Speedway,” Austin Liggett said. “Over the years, I think I have ran second there at least eight times, so to win this deal with a new car we put together is pretty cool.”

With 21 cars checked in for the non winged version of Petaluma Speedway’s Adobe Cup, Liggett would time the Excel Environmental Services/Liggett Trucking/Tool Technology backed No. 83 machine in fifth fastest in time trials.

Lining up in the third row of his heat race, the Tracy, CA native turned Linden, CA resident would continue to shake his CS9 machine out as he picked up a third place finish on the slick surface, and put himself on the front row of the 30-lap Adobe Cup feature event.

Getting the jump when the race went green, Liggett would quickly move to the bottom groove where there was a little moisture to grab on to. Working the bottom, Liggett showed some veteran savvy, as he was patient and methodically hitting his marks.

With Billy Aton and JJ Ringo breathing down his neck, Liggett would not be denied on this night as he would lead from the drop of the green to the drop of the checkered, and pocket his ninth feature event win of the season.

“Big thanks to my Dad, Tim, for again giving me a great car,” Liggett said. “I also have to thank Matt and my Mom for working hard in our pit as well. We can’t do this without all of our partners, so I would like to thank them all as well, and welcome aboard ZMAX Racing Oil, and Transport Products Unlimited.”

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

Donny Schatz survives chaos to finish 13th at Tri-State; Kansas and Missouri visits on deck

Date: Sunday, October 13th
Event: World of Outlaws at Tri-State Speedway
Series: World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series
Track: Tri-State Speedway (Haubstadt, Indiana)
Donny Schatz A-Main Finish (Start): 13th (5th)

2019 World of Outlaws Championship Standings: 2nd - 9270 points (30 points behind Brad Sweet)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (October 14, 2019) - Donny Schatz’ visit to Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Indiana, on Sunday, October 13, was far from routine. Forced to overcome two incidents, one of which occurring on the opening lap, the ten-time and defending World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion eventually persevered and rallied to finish 13th at the southern Indiana high banks, one of only seven instances where Schatz finished outside of the top-ten in 2019.

Despite Schatz’ ability to recover, the Fargo, North Dakota-native lost ground in the championship chase, now 30 points behind title rival, Brad Sweet, with another weekend in the Midwest looming.

“As far as results are concerned, It was a disappointing night for our team, but hats off to their work ethic and ability to rebound,” Donny Schatz explained of his night in Haubstadt, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Toco Warranty/Ford Performance/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/Absolute Automation & Security/No. 15 sprint car. “My guys never gave up and they continued to push even when things were at their worst. We’ve had just about everything thrown at us this year. Hopefully we are beyond all of that.”

Starting fifth on the feature grid, things were seemingly on pace for success at Tri-State Speedway, that until Schatz was clipped from behind between turns three and four on the opening lap ultimately resulting in a trip to the work area. Luckily, damage was minimal and Schatz was able to return to the speedway.

Unfortunately, Schatz was caught up in chaos yet again, this time collected in a spin just before the midpoint of the main event. Suffice it to say, the team’s perseverance prevailed and Schatz recovered to finish 13th.

Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing will continue their 2019 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series championship chase with a doubleheader in Kansas and Missouri, this time visiting Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kansas, on Friday, October 18, followed by a stop at Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Missouri, on Saturday, October 19.

Honoring the late Jason Johnson in 2019, Donny Schatz is the defending race winner at Lake Ozark Speedway, holding off David Gravel and Kerry Madsen for a $10,000 payday.

McIntosh Notches another Pair of Top Tens – POWRi Midget Double this Weekend

Lonnie Wheatley, BIXBY, Okla. (October 11, 2019) – Cannon McIntosh and the Dave Mac Motorsports Toyota-TRD Spike No. 08 Midget team continue to string together strong finishes with another pair of top-ten runs in Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League competition last weekend.

The 16-year-old from Bixby, OK, looks to extend the run of success with another pair of events in Illinois this weekend.

This weekend’s POWRi Midget action begins with a Saturday night card at Southern Illinois Raceway before moving on to Belle-Clair Speedway on Sunday.

Last weekend’s action included finishes of fourth and seventh at Illinois’ Jacksonville Speedway that propelled the young gun into the top five in POWRi National Midget League points.

“It was a good weekend for us, the consistency is coming along and hopefully we can keep it going this weekend,” McIntosh commented.

McIntosh began last weekend’s double at Jacksonville with a heat race win from the pole and then advanced from sixth to fourth in feature action.

“We got up to second, we ran away from Rico (Abreu) and we were running down (Logan) Seavey, then the car kind of went away over the last part of the race,” McIntosh recalls.

Drawing a higher number on Saturday, McIntosh raced from seventh to post a fourth-place heat race finish to land the seventh starting position for the main event. But a rain shower before the feature made for a heavy racing conditions.

“After that rain, we were really tight, it had us bound up,” McIntosh says.

With top-ten finishes in six of the last eight POWRi National Midget features, McIntosh will try to extend that with this weekend’s action in Marion and Belleville.

Along with Toyota-TRD, other marketing partners making the 2019 Cannon McIntosh slate of events possible includes Sanders and Associates, Car and Fleet, Mobil 1, Speedway Engine Development, Best Graphics, Fieldhouse Gear, Precision Inspection, Panels by Smoke, Walker Performance, Sanders Wheels, American Discount Brake and Muffler, D&N Fabrication, Darling Ingredients, PJ’s and Hinds Family.

Up Next: POWRi National Midget League at Southern Illinois Raceway (Marion, IL) on Saturday and Belle-Clair Speedway (Belleville, IL) on Sunday.

FORMER WINNERS AMONG EARLY ENTRIES FOR BUDWEISER OVAL NATIONALS!

(Perris, CA, October 11, 2019) Three former winners – Bud Kaeding, Damion Gardner and Chris Windom – are among the early entries for the 24th Annual Budweiser Oval Nationals Presented By All Coast Construction at Perris Auto Speedway on November 7th, 8th and 9th. The three will face stiff competition from the top drivers in both the Amsoil USAC/CRA and USAC National Sprint Car Series all three nights.

Kaeding, who resides in Campbell, California and Gardner, who calls Concord, California home, have each one the race three-times. Windom, of Canton, Illinois, has sipped the Oval Nationals victory champagne and taken home one of the coveted eagle trophies once.

Kaeding became the first two-time winner of the Oval Nationals when he went back to back in 2001 and 2002. He then became the first three-time victor a dozen years ago in 2007. His three triumphs also tie him for the most owner wins in the prestigious race. This year he will be driving the Williams Motorsports #0 that he regularly competes with in the “King of The West-NARC” sprint car series. The 39-year-old is currently second in “KOW-NARC” standings and is only four points out of first with two races to go. In addition to his prowess in that series, Kaeding finished second in this year’s “Taco Bravo Sprint Car” standings.

Gardner’s three wins in the Oval Nationals have come in 2009, 2011 and 2016. The popular driver who first competed at Perris Auto Speedway in 2002, is currently leading the point standings and is seeking an unprecedented eighth USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series championship. He won his first USAC/CRA title in 2005 driving for car owner Ron Chaffin and has won the last seven in a row driving for Mark Alexander, who he also teamed with for his 2016 Oval Nationals victory. If the driver known as “The Demon” manages to win the championship this year, he will surpass Ron Shuman’s seven combined titles in the original CRA and SCRA. Gardner would thus become the all-time leader in championships dating back to 1946 in the combined CRA, SCRA and USAC/CRA Series.’

Windom, who was born on Christmas Eve in 1990, became the youngest winner in Oval Nationals history when he easily outdistanced the field in 2010. That conquest came when he was only 19 years old. It also gave car owner Jeff Walker his third ever Oval Nationals victory, tying him for car owner total wins with Kaeding. In 2017, Windom put the wraps on the USAC National Sprint Car Championship at Perris. That title came one year after he took the top spot in the USAC Silver Crown Series. Heading into the 2019 Ovals, Windom has four wins in the National series this year and is currently fifth in the point standings.

Petty, TX (10/11/19) Event Marketing & Publicity by DarinShort.com. Long-time North Texas dirt track racecar owner Paul “Patsy” Peters passed away on July 9th, 2019. He was the father of 82 Speedway’s track owner, Tracy Peters. In honor of his life that was ingrained in the dirt track racing community of this region, Tracy is putting on a massive event SATURDAY October 12th at 82 Speedway at 6pm, the $31,500 Paul Peters Memorial – featuring the 360 C.I. Sprint Car Bandits® (SCB) series, the TOMS - Touring Outlaw Modified Series (TOMS) with added purse from 82 Speedway, plus a whopping $2,000 to win in the Hoyte Dodge RAM Chrysler Jeep of Sherman Texas Factory Stocks and $1,200 to win in the TRC - Team Richardson Chassis Limited Modifieds.

Paul’s 71st birthday would have also been on October 12th – thus the selection of this date for the event. Again, please note the early start time of 6:00pm.

GET HERE EARLY! Trey Rose Music (Trey Rose), contestant on NBC’s The Voice earlier this year, will be on hand during Sprint Car Bandits pre-race Fan Fest from 5:30-6pm signing autographs and meeting fans, and then singing the national anthem live in front of the crowd during opening ceremonies (estimated to be around 6:30).

If you happen to visit his Facebook page, make sure to mention you’re looking forward to him coming to 82 Speedway!

We would like to take a moment to thank Paul Peters Motor Sports for adding money to the Factory Stock purse – for the first 15 finishers, which has allowed us to up their purse from $1,200 to $2,000 to win. We would also like to thank Texoma Dent Specialists for adding money to the Factory Stock purse.

The beautiful ¼ mile dirt oval of 82 Speedway is located about 15 minutes west of Paris, directly on Hwy 82 in Petty Texas.

Fans can expect a full field of many of the region's best dirt track racers to be on hand on this very special night. Paul was known to have a big personality and an even bigger presence, so it’s only fitting to have an event of this magnitude in his honor.

There are no walls around the entire track – with lots of runoff space wherever you’re racing, which leads to less tore up equipment. Over-sized grandstands that each have unobstructed viewing from whatever spot you choose to view from. Huge spectator and pit parking areas will greet everyone on their arrival. Track owners, Shelley and Tracy Peters who are some of the nicest people you’ll ever come across, and they have been reinvesting in the permanent structure of the facility since they purchased it last year.

HEARTBREAK FOR BRODY ROA AT SANTA MARIA!

(Cypress, CA, October 10, 2019) What looked like it was going to be Brody Roa’s 14th top-three finish of 2019, instead ended in heartbreak at the Santa Maria Raceway last Saturday night when mechanical ills forced him to the sidelines while running second late in the race.

Making only his third start in the USAC West Coast Series this year and his first-ever appearance in the Jim Richardson owned #8 sprint car, Roa qualified fifth in the 15-car field with a lap of 14.080. He then placed second in his 10-lap heat race.

For the main on the track where he has three wins in the USAC/CRA Series the past three seasons, Roa started on the inside of the second row. When the green flag started the 30-lap feature, the 28-year-old driver from Garden Grove, California slipped back to fourth. He moved into the top three on lap-12 just before a yellow slowed the action.

Beginning in third on the restart with 19-laps to go, Roa immediately advanced to second and he ran in the runner up spot for 10-laps. What looked like a for sure second-place finish disappeared when he coasted silently to a stop in turn two. Moments later he was pushed back to the pit area with a frustrating ninth-place finish.

Roa’s next scheduled appearance will be in Tanner Grau’s #34 in the USAC Southwest Series at Central Arizona Speedway in Casa Grande on October 26th. He will carry a nine-point lead in the series championship standings into that race. In three appearances in Grau’s car this year, Roa has wins at Las Vegas and Arizona’s Canyon Speedway Park. He also took the car to a fourth-place finish in another race at Las Vegas in February.

After the Southwest Series race in Casa Grande, Roa will return to action in the Dwight Cheney #42 for the final two CRA/Southwest Series co-sanctioned events of the season. First off will be the 24th Annual Budweiser Oval Nationals on November 7th, 8th and 9th. He will close the season the following weekend at the 52nd Annual Western World Championships at Arizona Speedway.

Roa would like to thank car owner Cheney for letting him drive the Racing Optics, Wilson Racing, STEELCO USA, Curb Records, Golden Harvest #42. In addition, he wants to thank his personal sponsors HD Industries, Burris Racing. “Biker” Bruce Fisher, Molecule, K-1 Race Gear, Shaver Specialties and Sander Engineering.

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

With 69 cars in the pits for the ASCS Mid-South Region event, Mallett began Friday night on the pole position of a heat race. He finished second and followed that by advancing from seventh to sixth during a qualifier. Mallett ended the night by finishing where he started - fifth - in a B Main on a track that took rubber.

"We weren't off all night, but we just were not as good as the other guys," he said. "It was a tough track to pass on all night and come the B Main it rubbered up. So we just kind of were riding around and got ourselves ready for Saturday."

Saturday night's event finale began with Mallett starting eighth in a heat race. He passed four cars to finish fourth and move on to a qualifier. Mallett started third in the qualifier and lost two spots to finish fifth.

For the second consecutive night Mallett was forced to race in a B Main to qualify for the feature. He started fourth and finished fourth, which was one position shy of a transfer. However, as a result of being in the top two in passing points throughout the weekend out of the drivers who didn't make the A Main, Mallett earned a provisional into the back of the main event.

Unfortunately, his night ended early after he hit a rut on the track on Lap 3 and broke the Jacob's Ladder on the car. His team attempted to make repairs during a Lap 7 red flag, but they couldn't get it fixed in the work area and chose to return to their pit. Mallett was credited with an 18 th-place finish, which is his 27th top-20 result of 2019.

"We tried a few different things for Saturday and we were definitely a lot better," he said. "Luckily we had a lot of points and we got ourselves into the A Main. Knowing we had 41 laps to go I was just biding my time early and unfortunately we had something break and it just ruined our night. I think we had a top-10 car."

Next up for the Greenbrier, Ark., native will be a return to Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour action this Friday and Saturday at Creek County Speedway in Sapulpa, Okla. With only six races remaining on the ASCS National Tour schedule, Mallett is hoping to have a good performance and cut into the 79-point deficit he has behind the eighth spot in the standings.

"We feel pretty secure about where we are at in points and I think there's an opportunity to move forward," he said. "I think we've been getting better and I'm hoping we can finish this thing out strong and have a good weekend."

Starks Improves Throughout National Open to Garner Career-Best Finish During Event Finale

Inside Line Promotions - MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (Oct. 10, 2019) - Although it was a trying weekend for Trey Starks, he and Gobrecht Motorsports made the Champion Racing Oil National Open main event and moved forward.

"We didn't qualify the best to put ourselves in a good position either night, but we got back to where we were supposed to be on Saturday," Starks said. "We probably needed to start there and progress a little better."

The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series action at Williams Grove Speedway began on Friday with Starks uncharacteristically qualifying 23rd quickest in his group. He advanced from eighth to sixth place in a heat race, from third to win the D Main and from 13th to sixth in the C Main.

"We went out late in our group and just weren't very good in qualifying, but we got the car better throughout the night," he said. "We moved forward in the heat race, won the D Main and we came up to sixth in the C Main, but just ran out of time."

Saturday started off smoother for Starks, who timed in ninth quickest in his group. However, a fourth-place result in a heat race relegated him to the Last Chance Showdown. Starks won the race to garner a transfer into the A Main.

"We tuned up for the B Main and got the car really, really good in clean air," he said. "We ran some great laps that were competitive in times with drivers in the dash. We knew we had a fast race car. I tried to move around toward the end because I knew we couldn't do the same things in the A Main since we'd be starting in dirty air."

Starks brought out a caution early in the race and was forced to restart at the back of the field, which was deeper than a normal race after multiple provisionals were used. He was able to rally up to 18th by the time the checkered flag was waved. It marked his career-best result during the National Open finale.

"I got into the wall racing with some guys at the start of the feature," he said. "We had to come to the work area. We changed some parts, but the axle was bent as well. We got it better on the open red, but unfortunately the track took rubber toward the end of the race.

"All in all the car was good in the feature, which we were happy with. I made a few mistakes, which cost us. We had the car where we wanted it. It took a lot of work and frustration to get there so it was nice to have a solid performance."

Starks will likely take the next three weeks off before resuming competition Oct. 25-26 at Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pa., during the Nittany Showdown with the World of Outlaws.

Hagar Produces First Short Track Nationals Preliminary Win Before Posting Career-Best Finale Finish

Inside Line Promotions - LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Oct. 10, 2019) - Derek Hagar wasn't sure he was going to be able to compete during the 32nd annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires.

The Arkansas native discovered a mechanical problem in his lone 360ci engine last week prior to the marquee event hosted by I-30 Speedway.

"Thankfully our friends Jeff and Mary Britt let us use their engine," Hagar said. "I'm grateful they did because we had our best Short Track Nationals ever."

Hagar was stout throughout the two-day ASCS Mid-South Region event that featured nearly 70 drivers. He hustled from fifth to second place in a heat race and from sixth to second in a qualifier to rank second in overall points prior to Friday's main event. That lined him up on the outside of the front row for the 25-lap main event.

"The track rubbered up during the B Mains so we knew it'd be crucial to get the lead on the start in order to have a chance to win," he said. "I beat John Carney II into turn one and we were able to maintain the lead. We had a caution with four laps to go and I saw his nose on the restart so I had to step up my game those last few laps."

Hagar led the distance to score his first career win during Short Track Nationals competition.

The success continued on Saturday as Hagar won a heat race and picked up a pair of positions in a qualifier to finish fourth. That ranked him eighth in points to start the 41-lap feature on the outside of the fourth row.

"I got up to fifth pretty quickly, but around Lap 8 our nose wing broke," he said. "A lot of drivers had problems with nose wings because the track was rough and choppy. It really hurt the handling of our car and we fell back a few spots. Then on the last lap two guys got together so we ended up finishing sixth."

Hagar's sixth-place result marked his career-best finish during the Short Track Nationals finale, besting his seventh-place run in 2017.

"It was a great weekend," he said. "I think 2006 was my first Short Track Nationals and it's an event I always look forward to running. To get our first win and best Saturday result meant a lot."

Vardell Finishes Fourth in TriboDyn Lubricants Carolina Sprint Tour Championship Standings

Inside Line Promotions - TAYLORSVILLE, N.C. (Oct 10, 2019) - Sean Vardell earned a fourth-place finish in the TriboDyn Lubricants Carolina Sprint Tour championship standings during only his second season behind the wheel of a winged sprint car.

"It was a pretty good season," he said. "We definitely wish it would've gone a bit better, but it doesn't always happen that way. Our car was good on and off all year long. We made some crew chief changes a couple times and I think we got a good understanding of what we like so that'll help us for next year."

Vardell won eight heat races throughout the year. Though winning heat races is great, the way the points are set up the tour drivers don't get many passing points when starting on the front row of the heat. That has an impact on starting up front in the main events.

"If championships could be won off heat races we would've won," he joked. "It seemed like something always happened during the feature. We only had two DNFs, which was good, but the lack of passing points didn't help us much."

The Carolina Sprint Tour had 16 races scheduled and were able to get in 11 of those. Vardell finished in the top five four times - with a season-best outing of fourth - and he had nine top-10 results.

"Overall, it was a good season and we're happy with our fourth-place points finish," he said. "We're going to take the offseason to revamp our program and come out strong for next year. The series is continuing to grow and I'm really excited for 2020."

Kraig Kinser Welcomes World of Outlaws to Home State for Doubleheader

Inside Line Promotions - MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (Oct. 10, 2019) - Kraig Kinser has a homecoming this weekend when the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series visits his home state for a doubleheader.

The action begins Saturday at Terre Haute Action Track in Terre Haute, Ind., for the Wabash Clash before shifting to Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Ind., on Sunday.

"It's always nice to get back into Indiana," he said. "It means short trips from the race shop. We get to see a lot more family and fans that have seen me even before I was running Outlaws stuff. It's great to spend some time with everybody."

Kinser earned the Hard Charger Award after maneuvering from 23rd to 11th during his only race in his home state this season.

The homecoming is a nice boost after a frustrating weekend during the Champion Racing Oil National Open hosted by Williams Grove Speedway.

"We didn't get up to speed quick enough and that's not a track where you want to have a disadvantage at," he said. "With the competition there it's a tough deal. In a perfect situation you qualify quick and try to make those cars stay behind you the rest of the night. If you don't qualify well you have to try to get by those guys. There's a lot of great drivers so that's hard."

Kinser qualified 13th quickest in his group on Friday. He placed seventh in a heat race and eighth in the Last Chance Showdown before advancing from 30th to 25th in the A Main.

The weekend wrapped up on Saturday when Kinser timed in 17th quickest in his group. He finished sixth in a heat race and 13th in the Last Chance Showdown.

Henderson Leads Sandvig Racing to Top 10 at Short Track Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Oct. 10, 2019) - Justin Henderson's maiden voyage behind the wheel of the Mike Sandvig Racing No. 7 during 360ci sprint car action was highlighted by a 10th-place finish Friday night at I-30 Speedway.

The top 10 came during the preliminary night at the 32nd annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires with the ASCS Mid-South Region.

"Track conditions dictated things both nights and I feel we did everything we could to succeed," Henderson said. "We got two separate track conditions both nights so we learned a lot, too."

The event kicked off Friday with Henderson starting fourth in a heat race. He advanced one position to finish third. As a result of being among the top 40 cars in passing points, he moved on to a qualifier, in which he started seventh and finished fourth.

The result was good enough to lock him into the feature in the 13 th starting spot. Henderson battled a tough race track that took rubber early to move forward three positions and finish 10th. The top 10 was the 10th of the season for the Sandvig Racing team.

"We were not bad Night 1, but we weren't anything special either," Henderson said. "We got a few positions early in the feature and after that the track dictated what we could do. We just held our own and came out with a top 10."

Saturday night began with Henderson starting eighth in a heat race. He passed two cars to finish sixth. He then started 10th in a qualifier and advanced two positions again to place eighth. Henderson was forced to run a B Main. He rallied to pass four cars and finish sixth. However, it wasn't enough to qualify for the A Main.

"Saturday night the track was just really slimy to start the night and it was completely different than Friday's surface" he said. "We moved forward every time we hit the track, but starting position killed us. It's tough when you see other guys who drew better are not passing cars and you are and yet you're still on the outside looking in. But I feel good about the speed we had."

Henderson and Sandvig will return to action Oct. 18 at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., during the FVP Platinum Battery Showdown and Oct. 19 at Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo., during the Jason Johnson Classic presented by FK Rod Ends with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series.

"I think we have a really good baseline for both race tracks and I don't see any reason we're not contending for wins both nights," Henderson said. "We know what works for us and what won't. So we'll take the week off and come in looking for a great weekend and I think we've got a good chance to run well."

Price Seeking Good Points Weekend in Return to Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour Action at Creek County Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Oct. 10, 2019) - Robbie Price is eager to rebound from a tough weekend at I-30 Speedway during the 32 nd annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires as he returns to Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour action.

Price will head to Creek County Speedway in Sapulpa, Okla., on Friday and Saturday for the Fall Fling.

"As a driver you have to have a short memory out there as you'll likely have more tough weeks then great weeks," he said. "I'm excited to put last weekend behind me and head back on the Tour. This place is a short track and I really like the smaller tracks, so it's the perfect medicine following a tough outing."

Price has had his fair share of learning experiences this year. Whether it has been harder competition, different track surfaces or new venues, every night has been a journey. This week will be no different as it will be his first visit to the quarter-mile oval in Oklahoma.

"This tour is a challenge and part of what makes it so is seeing different places throughout the year so I'm excited to get to yet another new track," he said. "I feel like I've adapted well and I think I'm better off because of it. It's going to be a fun weekend and I'm excited to see what we can do."

While most of the season has been about learning, with only six remaining races on the schedule Price is starting to think about points. Price currently holds a narrow six-point advantage over the eighth-place driver in the ASCS National Tour championship standings.

"I try to not think about points during the year, but there is quite a big difference between the payout from seventh to eighth," he said. "This late in the year you have to make every lap count and that's what we're thinking about heading in here. If we do what we're capable of, that part will take care of itself."

SEASON STATS -

51 races, 2 wins, 7 top fives, 16 top 10s, 26 top 15s, 32 top 20s

UP NEXT -

Friday and Saturday at Creek County Speedway in Sapulpa, Okla., for the Fall Fling with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour

Vortex Racing Product’s support 360’s

Paul & Lynton Jeffrey of Vortex Racing Products has again offered to supply the Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Series with an Outlaw Top wing for their End of Season Championship. The “Vortex Altitude Award” is presented to the driver with the most & biggest roll over’s for the season.

“Our Vortex Altitude Award has become one of our popular traditions with them sponsoring us since our second season. We cannot thank Paul and Lynton enough for their loyalty to our series and without companies like these we cannot reward our drivers to the same level that we do.” Searle said.

It might seem a bit ironic but last season Mark Caruso won the Top wing. Caruso was the series Champion but along the way managed a couple of spectacular roll overs making him eligible. He certainly appreciated the Vortex Outlaw Top wing at the end of season to kick start his 19-20 season off.

Check out the Vortex web site www.vortexracingproducts.com.au for full information on their products or email Paul Jeffrey at pauljeffrey1@bigpond.com and support the ones that support us.

 

 

World of Outlaws Hit the Track at Lakeside Speedway on October 18

KANSAS CITY, Kan. — October 9, 2019 — The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series will take to the track at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City for the 10th consecutive year on Friday, October 18 for the running of the FVP Platinum Battery Showdown. For the third consecutive season, the event will again coincide with the NASCAR weekend at Kansas Speedway, which is less than 10 miles from Lakeside Speedway.

Kasey Kahne, who retired from NASCAR following the 2018 season, will be at Lakeside Speedway, signing autographs from 4-5 p.m. on race day.

Last year, Daryn Pittman was victorious at Lakeside Speedway over 10-time series champion Donny Schatz and Sheldon Haudenschild. For Pittman, the 2013 Outlaws champion, it was his second-career win at Lakeside, but first since 2003. Pittman started on the pole and paced all 30 laps to score what was his ninth win of the season.

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

Brad Sweet, who won at Lakeside for the first time in 2016, leads the series into action, as he chases his first Outlaws title. Sweet leads Schatz by just 14 points with eight races remaining on the season. Schatz scored his first victory at Lakeside Speedway in 2015, while Madsen won at Lakeside Speedway in 2014.

David Gravel, who earned the biggest win of his career, at the Knoxville Nationals, back in August, is currently third in points and has nine wins in 2019. Pittman is locked in a tight battle for the fourth spot, with Logan Schuchart, who has picked up a career-high eight wins this season.

Carson Macedo, the leading Rookie contender this season, who has won four races, sits sixth in points. Shane Stewart is seventh in the current standings, with Ian Madsen, who has a pair of wins in eighth. Sheldon Haudenschild, who has won twice in 2019, is ninth points, with Brent Marks rounding out the top-10.

Also on the tour again this season are veteran drivers Kraig Kinser and Jason Sides as well as Jacob Allen from Pennsylvania.

Tickets for the FVP Outlaws Showdown, featuring the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series, along with Mod Lites at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City on Friday, October 18 can be purchased in advance online at https://slspromotions.ticketforce.com or by calling 815-344-2023.

Sean Becker and Monhoff Racing Dominate Adobe Cup VIII at Petaluma Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA- There is just something about Sean Becker and Petaluma Speedway that really click. With a series best 7 career Civil War Series wins under his belt at the bay area facility, Becker added another notch to his belt on Saturday night as he clean swept the 8th Annual Adobe Cup aboard the Monhoff Racing No. 88n, and picked up his eighth feature event win of the year.

Running a draw show that saw each driver run two heat races, Becker would flex his muscles early in the night, as he picked up the win during his first heat race by over nine seconds.

Coming back for another heat race later in the night, Becker was still on kill as he again worked his way forward and scored another heat race win, making him the highest point earner of the night.

On this night the Top-8 in points would move into a qualifying session where their two lap total time would line them up for the first four rows of the feature event. Not only did Becker earn quick time honors, but he also established a new all time Petaluma Speedway Track Record with his first lap which was a stout 11.861 seconds.

Moving into the feature event, Becker would slip back to second during the first lap as Kalib Henry jumped out to the early lead in one lap before the caution was needed.

Once back underway, Becker stayed glued to Henry’s rear bumper as the leaders reached the back of the pack in only three laps. On the race’s eighth lap, Becker would get the better of the youngster as he took command of the race, and never looked back.

On a hooked up and fast Petaluma Speedway gumbo like surface, Becker would not be denied as he drove like a man on a mission on this night. Though a late yellow would bunch the field up, Becker would not be denied as he capped off the nightly clean sweep, and celebrated high atop the Petaluma Speedway fence.

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-44, Wins-8, Top 5’s- 19, Top-10’s- 32

ON TAP: Becker now gets back to work with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour on Saturday night in Hanford, CA as he sits third in points with just two events left on the series’ schedule.

Knoxville, IA, October 9, 2019 – The National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum is proud to announce their final “Salute to Champion” will focus on the late, great Greg Hodnett in 2020! The plans for the exhibit were announced Saturday during the 57th Annual Williams Grove National Open at Williams Grove Speedway near Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. Also, Hodnett’s widow, Sherry, accepted the 2018 North American Sprint Car Poll Thomas J. Schmeh Outstanding Contribution to the Sport Award on Greg’s behalf.

“We’re absolutely honored to have Greg Hodnett as our spotlight for our annual ‘Salute to Champion’ at the museum,” said National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum’s Bill Wright. “Greg had such an impact on not only what was going on on the track, but off it as well. It’s going to be a lot of fun for us to tell his story. He was dedicated to going faster every time out, and used his engineering background and his experience to make it work on the track. More importantly, he was a great person! We’re excited that one of our long-time supporters, Roger Johnson, will be on board helping us with this one. Roger was an important part of Greg’s career, starting from the beginning.”

Wright added, “Though it’s early in the process, I can tell you that many are already involved in making this one of our greatest ‘Salute to Champion’ exhibits ever. Early thank you’s go out to Sherry Hodnett, the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing, Jim and Sandy Kline, Mike Heffner, Mike Ward, Roger Johnson, and many more to come! We hope to see sprint car fans from across the country coming to see our Salute to Champion Greg Hodnett exhibit inside the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum in 2020.

The “Salute to Champion” exhibit will be the tenth and final salute exhibit for the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum.

Ian Madsen Eyes Return To Midwest Following Tough National Open

PETERSEN MEDIA- Though the string of Top-5 finishes for KCP Racing and Ian Madsen came to a halt over the weekend in PA, Madsen and company are looking forward to getting back on track this weekend when the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series returns to the Midwest.

“The National Open was definitely a humbling weekend for our race team,” Madsen said. “When you mix the Outlaws against the PA Posse the stakes get raised and if you aren’t on your ‘A’ game it can get magnified. It wasn’t our best weekend but we are all looking forward to getting back on track this weekend.”

Taking part in Williams Grove Speedway’s marquee event over the weekend, Madsen would end up coming out of the ‘B’ Main to make the show where he would line up 24th on the starting grid.

Amidst the large 30-car field, Madsen would battle his way forward and pocket a 15th place finish.

Saturday night, Madsen and company would utilized a provisional to make the 40-lap National Open feature event as they took the green flag from the 27th starting position before finishing 23rd.

With the Williams Grove National Open now in the rear view mirror, Madsen and company are looking forward to this weekend’s events at Terre Haute Action track in Terre Haute, IN and at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, IN.

Croft Claims Another KWS Top-5

PETERSEN MEDIA- Saturday night, Willie Croft reunited with the King of the West Series after an extended late summer break in the schedule and raced his way to a fourth place finish during the series’ final visit of the year to Kern County Raceway Park.

“Kern is a place we always seem to race really well at, and Saturday we had another pretty good run,” Willie Croft said. “Hopefully we can put together two good runs at Hanford and Stockton the next couple of weeks and we will see how the points shake out.”

Saturday night at Kern County Raceway Park, Croft got the night underway by timing the Holey Smokes BBQ/ButlerBuilt/Brown and Miller backed No. 29 machine in fastest in qualifying time trials.

Lining up in the second row of his heat race, Croft would pick up a position and finish third on the slick 3/8 mile oval. By way of his heat finish and his qualifying effort, the Roseville, CA driver would garner enough points to earn a spot in the nightly Dash.

Picking up a second place finish in the Dash, Croft moved into the feature event where he would take the green flag from the front row alongside Dominic Scelzi. When the race came to life, Scelzi and Croft would drag race into turn one and two with Croft holding the slim advantage briefly as they raced side by side into turns three and four.

With Scelzi able to clear Croft coming to complete the first lap of the race, Croft would settle into second though Bud Kaeding, Chase Johnson, and Ryan Bernal were all coming after him.

Reaching the back of the field, Croft would continue to keep Scelzi in his crosshairs, but on the 10th lap Kaeding would get by Croft as traffic continued to thicken.

Running in the third position as laps continued to click off, Ryan Bernal would see a gap in traffic as he closed in on Croft and he would take the final spot on the podium with just 10-to-go in the race.

Able to maintain his position inside the Top-5 the final laps of the race, Croft would take the checkered flag with a fourth place finish.

“Things got a little tricky in traffic there towards the end of the race and we lost a couple of spots,” Croft said. “Thanks to my guys for what they continue to do for me. Looking forward to this weekend’s Cotton Classic in Hanford, CA.”

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

Nienhiser Crowned MOWA Champion

PETERSEN MEDIA: Though he didn’t have the weekend he hoped for on his home track, Paul Nienhiser was still able to celebrate as he was officially crowned the 2019 MOWA Champion over the weekend at Jacksonville Speedway.

“We were just a little off,” Paul Nienhiser said. “We clinched the title just by drawing a pill on Friday so I didn’t have to race cautious or force any issues that I didn’t need too.”

Friday night a total of 38 cars checked into the pit area and the Chapin, IL driver would draw the front row of a very stacked heat race. After getting into the lead, Nienhiser would encounter traffic in the closing laps which would equate to a near miss that saw him drop two positions and finish third.

Giving up valuable points, Nienhiser will was able to make the feature where he took the green flag from the 15th starting position. On a track that was pretty dominant around the top, Nienhiser would pick up what he could as he made a point not to get overly aggressive while running mid pack.

Able to gain a few spots, Nienhiser capped the night with a 10th place finish aboard the CAM2 Blue Blood Racing Oil/Mason Sound/Innovative Design backed entry.

Following Saturday afternoon showers, 32 cars would show up for the MOWA finale, and Nienhiser would draw the second row for his heat race. With those previously mentioned showers, the track crews did a great job of getting the track ready but it was still a hammer down surface, that didn’t see much passing early as Nienhiser finished fourth in his heat.

For the second consecutive night, he would again just sneak into the feature event as he would be 15th in points after heats and roll off the starting grid from the inside of the eighth row.

With the track still fast in the feature, Nienhiser would actually avoid some chaos and again sneak his way up to 10th when the madness drew to a close.

“It was definitely really cool to win my first championship at my home track in front of so many friends, fans, and partners who help us out so much,” Nienhiser said. “It was a great MOWA season for us, with the exception of these last two shows, I really feel like we were in contention to win every night, and that is a testament to this team we have put together.”

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

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Races-46, Wins-12, Top 5’s-21, Top 10’s-28

ON TAP: Nienhiser is unsure of his next race at the time of press.

Justin Sanders and Dale Miller Motorsports 7th at Adobe Cup VIII

PETERSEN MEDIA- Fresh off of a second place run at the Fall Nationals, Justin Sanders and Dale Miller Motorsports made the decision to make a rare appearance at Petaluma Speedway on Saturday for Adobe Cup VIII where they picked up a seventh place finish.

“They ran a passing point format, and dual heat races and we put ourselves in a decent position,’ Sanders said. “It was pretty sticky and hooked up most of the night and that made passing a little tough.”

Drawing for heat starting position in the first heat, Sanders lined the Thompson’s Buick-GMC/Thompson’s Jeep-Ram/Dale Miller Septic, Inc. backed No. 4SA machine up seventh in his first heat race.

Making his way forward in the first 10-lap race, the Aromas, CA driver would finish fourth and tally valuable points as he would line up on the front row of his second heat. Finishing second in his second heat after a spirited battle with DJ Freitas, Sanders found himself in a tie for ninth in points, which placed him in the fifth row of the 30-lap feature.

On a hooked up a sticky Petaluma Speedway, Sanders would hang inside the Top-10 as the race clicked off in rapid fire fashion. Battling through lapped traffic at lightening fast speeds, Sanders would pick up a couple of positions during the duration of the race.

Following a late restart, Sanders would go on to accept the checkered flag with a seventh place finish.

“It was great to get another race in as we prepare for the upcoming Trophy Cup,” Justin Sanders said. “Big thanks to Dale and Tara Miller, as well as to everyone who supports the team.”

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

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts- 21, Wins- 1, Top-5’s-6, Top-10’s-12

ON TAP: Sanders and Dale Miller Motorsports will bring the No. 4SA back at the 26th Annual Trophy Cup in Tulare, CA.

 

 

Brian Brown Scores Two Seventh-Place Results During National Open

Inside Line Promotions - MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (Oct. 8, 2019) - Brian Brown led a quarter of the Champion Racing Oil National Open finale last Saturday at Williams Grove Speedway before finishing seventh for the second straight night.

He finished the season with a top-10 result during all six appearances at the famed half-mile oval.

Oct. 4 - Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa. - Qualifying: 3; Heat race: 1 (1); Dash: 3 (3); Feature: 7 (5).

"We qualified well both nights and put ourselves in a good spot," Brown said. "We won the heat and were good in the dash. We got to second at one time and finished third. We were really good in the beginning of the feature and got to fourth. We were right there with the top three. They had a double-file restart and I didn't get going like I wanted to. We weren't good the last 10-to-12 laps and were just holding on."

Oct. 5 - Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa. - Qualifying: 6; Heat race: 2 (2); Dash: 1 (1); Feature: 7 (1).

"Saturday night was a little like a duplicate of Friday," Brown said. "We qualified well and made the dash through the heat. We got lucky with the one pill in the dash draw and we won the dash. I think maybe I gave some bad information to Chad after the dash. We made some adjustments we shouldn't have. We were pretty good in open air. Once Brent (Marks) got by us our car really changed in dirty air and got really tight. I couldn't carry speed through the corner.

"You never want to go backwards, but we'll make some good notes and go back there next year hoping to put ourselves in a good opportunity again. If you start 14th and run seventh you have a different mindset than starting up front and running seventh. It was a good run, but in the next breath it's like, 'Gosh, what could have been.' I felt like we were pretty good. I'm proud of Chad, dad and Nate. They did a great job the last six weeks in Pennsylvania. I think we had only two finishes outside of the top 10 in 15 races."

UP NEXT - Saturday at Terre Haute Action Track in Terre Haute, Ind., for the Wabash Clash with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series

"We went there last year and broke the track record in qualifying," Brown said. "If I remember right we finished seventh in the feature. We were pretty good so I'm looking forward to getting back there. Hopefully we can qualify well and that will set us up for the rest of the night."

Kerry Madsen Places 11th During National Open at Williams Grove Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (Oct. 8, 2019) - Kerry Madsen nearly captured a top-10 finish during the Champion Racing Oil National Open.

The Big Game Motorsports driver improved throughout the two-day World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series event at Williams Grove Speedway, where the KI Crossbows backed team qualified 11th quickest in group action on Friday. A fourth-place run in a heat race was followed by a third-place finish in the Last Chance Showdown. Madsen pulled in early during the main event because of a lack of brakes.

"We were good in the B Main and went forward so we were excited to move forward in the A Main," he said. "I felt good on the opening lap. Coming into turn three a brake line got sheared. We came to the work area, but couldn't get it fixed. There's a couple of tracks I'm comfortable with keeping going, but Williams Grove, with the shape of the track and what it takes, there's no way you can do one corner without any brakes."

Saturday was strong from the start as Madsen qualified fourth quickest in his group. A runner-up result in a heat race earned a spot into a dash. However, Madsen drew the highest number available to line up last. He gained one position to finish fifth, giving him the ninth starting spot for the A Main.

"We qualified well and transferred though the heat to the dash," he said. "It was looking good. We drew a six for our dash and that's definitely not optimal. We finished fifth in the dash, which wasn't bad because that lined us up ninth for the feature. I lost two spots on the opening lap. I felt like we had a great race car, but couldn't make up any ground. We battled trying to go forward. Then the last 15 laps the track took rubber."

Madsen ended with an 11th-place result.

He will resume World of Outlaws competition this Saturday at Terre Haute Action Track in Terre Haute, Ind., during the Wabash Clash and Sunday at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Ind.

"I'm looking forward to both," he said. "Terre Haute should suit our program because we've been good on those types of big tracks. Elbows up like it is in Haubstadt is always fun, too."

Shaffer Guides Sides Motorsports to 17th-Place Outing at National Open

Inside Line Promotions - MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (Oct. 8, 2019) - Tim Shaffer posted a 17th-place result during the final night of the Champion Racing Oil National Open to highlight the weekend for Sides Motorsports.

Shaffer qualified seventh quickest in his group to kick off the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series action on Friday. However, a DNF in a heat race relegated him to the Last Chance Showdown at Williams Grove Speedway. Shaffer won that race to transfer into the main event, which was short-lived as he pulled off early with a DNF.

"We had a hiccup in the heat race so he had to run the B Main," team owner Jason Sides said. "He got going in the feature and then got hung out on a restart. He wasn't making up ground and decided to pull in to save it for the next night."

Saturday was more consistent for Shaffer as he timed in 12th quickest in his group before he placed fourth in both a heat race and the Last Chance Showdown. That earned a transfer into the A Main. Shaffer rallied from 22nd to the 17th-place finish.

"He got himself in there and got a few cars, but some of the restarts didn't go his way when one line would go better," Sides said. "He made a few spots, but he said after the race he was just kind of there."

Sides was just a tick off in qualifying both nights, timing in 11 th quickest in his group on Friday and 16th on Saturday. That put him behind the eight ball in a heat race and his night ended in the Last Chance Showdown both nights.

"I got a really good run in turns one and two to start my heat race on Friday, but a guy got out in the middle and turned right," he said. "It was either crash or lift. That was my shot from going fourth to second and making the dash to not making the feature. That was kinda how the weekend went overall."

Sides returns to World of Outlaws competition this Saturday at Terre Haute Action Track in Terre Haute, Ind., during the Wabash Clash and Sunday at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Ind.

"It's only a one-car operation this week," he said. "I know we can run decent in Haubstadt. Terre Haute is more about qualifying because the track is so big. Hopefully we'll put it in the show and move forward each night."

Wilson Produces Sixth-Place Finish During Opening Night of Short Track Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Oct. 8, 2019) - Greg Wilson highlighted the 32nd annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires by recording a sixth-place result last Friday.

Wilson and his Hercules Tires, DNC Hydraulics, Ohio Logistics and Gear Off Road sponsored team kicked off the ASCS Mid-South Region doubleheader at I-30 Speedway by winning a heat race from second before advancing from fifth to third place during a qualifier. That ranked Wilson seventh in overall points out of nearly 70 competitors, lining him up on the inside of the fourth row for the A Main.

"That event requires you to be good, but also have a lot of luck," he said. "We had a decent pill draw, a good heat race, a good qualifier and a good feature. Unfortunately, the track got one lane with rubber for the feature so there wasn't much passing. We gained a position to finish sixth. We felt like we were pretty good all night long."

Wilson's sixth-place run was his 26th top 10 of the season and it proved critical for Saturday.

The event finale began with Wilson maneuvering from fourth to second place in a heat race, but fifth-place results in both a qualifier and the B Main missed locking into the main event. However, Wilson had accumulated the most event points out of all the drivers unable to lock into the feature and therefore it earned him a provisional to start near the rear of the field.

"We had a good heat race, but we got a bad start and backed up a spot when we needed to gain a spot in the qualifier," he said. "We didn't make it out of the B Main, but we had enough cumulative points to get into the A Main. A few laps in a couple of cars were flipping and instead of running into them I drove it off the end of the track, got into the air and backed into the tire barriers. I made a business decision to call it a night at that point."

Wilson will look to rebound this Saturday at Waynesfield Raceway Park in Waynesfield, Ohio, during the 2nd annual Bob Hampshire Classic with the FAST Series.

"I missed it last year because we were gone and it bothered me," he said. "To run a race that is for a guy who has helped me become the person I am on and off the track is a huge honor. It's hard to put it into words what he means to me. From the time I was a little kid all I wanted to do was drive for my Uncle Bob and I was fortunate to get that opportunity."

Trenca Venturing to Fulton Speedway Saturday With Empire Super Sprints

Inside Line Promotions - CLAY, N.Y. (Oct. 8, 2019) - Joe Trenca's career-best season is winding down.

The Mucci Motorsports competitor is slated to join the Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints this Saturday at Fulton Speedway in Fulton, N.Y.

"We're excited to head to Fulton and we're hopeful we can put together a strong run there," he said. "We only get to race there once or twice a year so our goal is to show improvement there like we have at most of the other tracks this season."

Trenca has already set career-best marks with two wins, 11 top fives and 16 top 10s this year.

Saturday will be his second visit of the season to Fulton Speedway, where he finished 13th in July. His career-best result at the track was a fifth-place showing in 2016. He added a pair of top-10 runs in 2017.

"We've had up and down success at Fulton throughout the years," he said. "I think our program is the best it has ever been and that's shown at most of our races this season. I believe we're in a place where we can set a new career-best finish and even contend for a victory at Fulton. As the season is closing it's important to continue to string together consistent top-five results."

Old School Racing's Tankersley Records Hard Charger Award During Short Track Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Oct. 8, 2019) - Channin Tankersley captured the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars during the opening round of the 32nd annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires last Friday.

The Old School Racing competitor kicked off the ASCS Mid-South Region event at I-30 Speedway by winning a heat race. A sixth-place outing in a qualifier relegated him to a B Main. Tankersley gained a position in the consolation race to grab the third-and-final transfer spot into the back of the main event. He then rallied from 19th to 13th in the A Main.

"The track was rubbered up so there wasn't much passing," he said. "We got a bunch of cars right at the start. Once people singled out it was more difficult to pass so we took what we could get."

The six cars passed were the most to garner the Hard Charger Award.

Tankersley wrapped up the event on Saturday. He advanced from fourth to third place in a heat race before registering runner-up results in a qualifier and a B Main to lock into the main event.

"It was a positive night overall as we finished with another top 15," he said. "We would have liked to charge through the field, but passing was at a premium all weekend. To finish in the top 15 both nights when there are 60-plus drivers competing is an accomplishment."

Tankersley was credited with a 15th-place result on Saturday.

The team's next race is to be determined.

Skinner Shows Speed Throughout Short Track Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Oct. 8, 2019) - Marshall Skinner raced about as well as possible without making the A Main during each night of the 32nd annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires last weekend at I-30 Speedway.

Skinner missed transferring into Friday night's A Main by one position after advancing to a fourth-place finish in a B Main. On Saturday, he appeared to be locked into the main event while running the final lap of his qualifier when contact from another car ended his evening.

"It was kind of a frustrating weekend because I had a great car," he said. "There are a lot of variables and it takes some luck to make the A Main in this event with all the cars.

"The most frustrating race was Saturday's qualifier. I felt like a ping-pong ball out there. We had a yellow during the race and I went quite a ways before slowing down. Then I got hit by a guy still going wide open, way after the yellow came out. It got my rear bumper and crushed in my fuel cell. But I was able to continue and was running in a position that would get me into the A Main. On the final lap, the same guy tried a slider on me. The car in front of me almost spun out so I checked up and the guy throwing the slider took out my front end."

Skinner raced from seventh to fourth in his heat race on Friday, but a disappointing run in his qualifier relegated him into a B Main. His night ended with a fourth-place run in the consolation race.

"While I missed transferring to the A Main by one spot on Friday, that was kind of self-inflicted," he said. "You pretty much need to pass cars in every race and I backed up in the qualifier. I just overdrove the car.

"The good thing was that right after the B Main, I grabbed Derek (Hagar) and told him he needed to make changes to his car and free it up before the A Main because the track was rubbered up. We made a bunch of changes to his car and then he went out and won the A Main."

On-track frustrations aside, Skinner had an enjoyable weekend at I-30 Speedway.

"We went there to do some racing, cook out, drink some beer and have fun with friends - and that's what we did," he said. "So it was a good weekend."

Skinner also wants to recognize some who assisted him at the track on Friday.

"I arrived at the track by myself on Friday since my wife and kids had a ballgame to go to," he said. "I just wanted to thank Jeff and Landon Britt for their help at the track that night."

Skinner is slated to return to action this Friday and Saturday at Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark., during the Fall Nationals Flip Flop 50 with the USCS Series.

Helms Excited to Tackle Bob Hampshire Classic Saturday at Waynesfield Raceway Park

Inside Line Promotions - FINDLAY, Ohio (Oct. 8, 2019) - Caleb Helms has always admired Bob Hampshire.

"Bob was the first one to teach me how to build a race car," he said. "When he had his shop in Findlay I took my first car there. I'd work on my motors and stuff with his help. I spent a lot of time with him getting started. He shared a lot of his time and experience with me and taught me a lot about racing and life."

Helms will make his final start of the year this Saturday at Waynesfield Raceway Park in Waynesfield, Ohio, during a race named in honor of Hampshire. The FAST 410 Winged Sprint Car Series main event pays $5,630 to win.

"I'm not racing as much so I really want to do well every time I'm out," Helms said. "I would love to win this race. I really respect Bob and appreciate what he's done for racing."

Helms has only raced in his family owned team a handful of times this year, tackling events like the Kings Royal and Knoxville Nationals.

"Thanks to my dad, my grandpa, my wife and family for the support," he said. "Also, Chad Gullett has been handling the race car and he's the reason we're able to get to races because of his hard work so a big thanks to him."

Sam Hafertepe, Jr. Charges To Top Five Finish At Short Track Nationals

Bryan Hulbert - LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (October 8, 2019) Posting his fourth career top-five finish at the COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tire, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. had an overall very successful weekend at I-30 Speedway.
Looking at Friday, Hafertepe showed a lot of speed throughout the night with a Heat Race win, followed by a third in his Qualifier to lock into the eighth starting spot in the A-Feature. Trying to make moves early, the track had already progressed to the bottom line where Sam was unable to push forward without risking a DNF or worse. Rolling out a J&J Chassis for the first time since Sam's visit to I-30 Speedway in March, the focus, beyond winning, on Friday was getting the car balanced and ready for Saturday.
"That's just part of it," stated Hafertepe. "It was the first time since the start of the year that we were back in a J&J Chassis so we were just trying to get the car balance back out and I feel like the more we kept turning on it, once we got to Saturday night we really got it where we wanted to come Feature time."
Drawing the pole of his Heat Race on Saturday night, the win was followed by a third in the Qualifier. Missing the transfer into the 41-lap A-Feature, Sam had to fight his way in through the B-Feature with the win locking him 13th on the A-Feature grid.
"That's the way the format goes sometimes. You never want to, or at least I don't, ever want to draw the pole of a Heat Race because it just kills you on the points you can earn. A lot of guys like to draw that because it does help them, but for us, we want to start in the first two to three rows of the feature and drawing the pole, it doesn't matter how you do in the Qualifier, you're still going to have a hard time starting up front in the 'A'."
Racing through the field with reds and cautions playing to his favor, Sam was able to fight his way to a fourth-place finish.
"The track was a little heavier than what would make perfect racing conditions, so it makes everyone fast. It just took longer to get by some guys and we did get messed up a couple of times with traffic and one guy blowing an engine right in front of us. Just a lot of different things happening, but I felt like we had to have one of the fastest cars on the track just because we were able to get through the field so well."
Back with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network this weekend, the destination is the John Christner Trucking Fall Fling presented by James Hodge Ford at Creek County Speedway in Sapulpa, Okla. on Friday, October 11 and Saturday, October 12.
The defending champion of the Fall Fling, Hafertepe also has a prelim win as well as never finishing off the podium.
"We've seemed to hit on something there the past four years, and it has worked for us at Creek. It's just a matter of making the right changes and I think we're going to have a really good car there where we can build on what we learned last weekend to get our balance right."

"Winning the first one felt good, but to win back to back like this, it's just incredible. The track really played out a lot like it did last year, and once I started driving it that way, I got into a rhythm and just focused on not missing my mark," stated Hahn.
"I can't thank Dalton and my Dan enough for everything they did. The car was perfect every time I hit the track. Being on the list with Tony Bruce, Jr. as the only two to win it back to back, that's pretty good company."
Struggling Friday night, Hahn's night ended in hear spectacular fashion off the top of turn two after contact with Kyle Clark when a slide job came up short.
"The track Friday was tough, and we just got ourselves behind the eight-ball. Trying to race out a B-Main, I got racing with Kyle and threw a few slide jobs on him that were over the mark and let him drive by. I was trying to break his momentum and force him on the brakes and that didn't happen, but it is what it is. I thought for a second I was going over, but thankfully was able to keep it upright."
Drawing the highest pill for Heat Race lineups on Saturday, the format played perfectly for Hahn who was able to move from last to third in the night's final Heat Race. Putting him second in Passing Points going into the Qualifiers, Hahn moved up two spots to secure his position in the Dash for the top two rows. Missing the win in the Dash by mere feet at the line to Seth Bergman, Hahn started the 41 lap affair from the right of the front row.
Chasing the first twenty laps as John Caney II shot to the lead from the second row, Hahn gave chase on the bottom of the Speedway with Seth Bergman looking for second on the high line. Showing a nose to Hahn, the No. 52 adjusted to the top of turns one and two, while staying to the bottom of turns three and four.
"Once I moved my line, the car woke up and I started running down Carney. We had a caution with 18 down, and once I got rolling on the restart, I got a big run off of turn two and saw my shot at the lead and beat John to the bottom of turn three. After that, I just kept hitting that same line and it worked out. Thank you to Tracey, Joe, everyone at I-30 for getting the track where it needed to be for the racers and the fans. It's hard work and sometimes you miss it. We saw that Friday, but they were spot on Saturday."
Racing close to home this weekend, the chase for the season-ending $50,000 top prize heads for Creek County Speedway with the John Christner Trucking Fall Fling presented by James Hodge Ford on Friday, October 11 and Saturday, October 12.
"We're looking at this weekend like any other race. The goal is to win, but the last thing I want to do is point's race. Creek has been a mix of results for me the past couple of years, especially with the National Tour. We ended up with a pretty good run last year, and I've felt good there every time I've raced this year, so we're excited. Besides it's nice getting to race at a track that's less than a half-mile from my house."

Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports earn 2019 BOSS title with Atomic Speedway victory

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

FOREST, Ohio (October 7, 2019) – Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports could not have written a more perfect ending to their Saturday night venture to Atomic Speedway in Chillicothe, Ohio. Not only did the Forest, Ohio-based racing operation capture the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS) main event, but they sealed their BOSS title fate in the process. Impressive enough, the championship was accomplished during Westfall’s first-ever attempt as a full-time BOSS traveler.

Including his recent Atomic triumph, Westfall, driver of the Ray Marshall-owned/Ray Marshall Motorsports/Buckeye Machine Fabricators, Inc./Crazy Lady Restaurant and Bar/Hempy Water/DPI Ink/No. 33M sprint car, earned four BOSS victories during his 2019 championship campaign, the first also accomplished at Atomic Speedway on April 13. Westfall’s other BOSS wins took shape at Fremont Speedway on July 13, as well as at Kokomo Speedway on August 24.

In addition to his BOSS victories, Westfall and Ray Marshall earned 2019 victory lane appearances at Limaland Motorsports Park and Gas City Speedway, both of which earned during ‘weekly’ action.

“What a dream season. I couldn’t be more proud,” Ray Marshall explained. “This team works very hard and the hard work certainly paid off. I hope for the successes to continue long into the future.”

Despite the championship concluded, Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports still have one BOSS event remaining on their 2019 schedule, that being the second running of the Bob Hampshire Classic at Waynesfield Raceway Park on Saturday, October 12.

“I can’t thank Ray Marshall and this entire team enough for their support in 2019. The only thing we can do now is go out and win at Waynesfield. That would definitely put an exclamation mark on our season,” Matt Westfall said. “It was a long season, but the wins and championship make up for the long miles and long nights.”

Dietrich highlights National Open weekend with top-ten during preliminary; Crowned Williams Grove Speedway champion

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (October 7, 2019) – Despite contact with infield tires erasing all possibility for a $65,000 top prize on Saturday, ultimately slowing to a stop with 26 laps checked off the counter, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania’s Danny Dietrich opened his National Open campaign at Williams Grove Speedway with a top-ten performance on Friday, bouncing ahead from 11th to finish sixth against the World of Outlaws, now with six top-ten performances against the Series in 2019.

Although not a victor at The Grove during National Open weekend, Dietrich, driver of the Gary Kauffman Racing/ Weikert’s Livestock/Sandoe’s Fruit Market/Pace Performance/Big Cove Whitetail Trophy Hunts/Drop Of Ink Tattoo/Sweeney Cars/Self Made/No. 48 sprint car, did leave Mechanicsburg as a champion, clinching the 2019 Williams Grove Speedway track championship for the first time in his career.

“It was a great weekend for our team no matter how you look at it. We didn’t get the big prize on Saturday, but to finally cap off our Williams Grove Speedway track championship says a lot and we are proud as hell,” Danny Dietrich said, with car owner, Gary Kauffman, also collecting a first-ever track title. “Williams Grove Speedway has a lot of history and I’m proud to officially be a part of that history in a big way.

Brent Marks earns historic National Open victory worth $65,000

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

MYERSTOWN, Pa. (October 7, 2019) – Despite having to wait over a year to find his way back to World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory lane since his last appearance during a stop at Eldora Speedway on September 21, 2018, the ‘Myerstown Missile’ Brent Marks ended his victory drought in spectacular fashion, etching his name in sprint car racing record books firmly by winning the 2019 National Open at Williams Grove Speedway.

The largest paying program in Williams Grove history, the Myerstown, Pennsylvania-native collected $65,000 for his National Open triumph, also the largest payday of his career.

Marks, driver of the Brent Marks Racing/M&M Painting & Construction/BAPS Auto Paint & Supply/Eagle Hotel/No. 19 sprint car, earned his colossal victory from the outside of row one, jumping ahead of pole-sitter Brian Brown to lead the first two circuits. Although ‘Blackjack’ was able to battle back by the local Outlaw on lap three, Marks returned the favor on lap 13, sliding by Brown through turns one and two. From that point forward, it was all Brent Marks, even surviving a last lap caution that ultimately resulted in a green/white/checkered finish.

“I’m not so sure it even sunk in yet,” Brent Marks said. “This is unbelievable. I owe this all to my family, friends, crew, and of course, all of my great partners. I grew up in the Williams Grove Speedway infield, so to win this race really hits close to home. I really don’t know what to say.”

With little time to waste celebrating, Brent Marks and Brent Marks Racing will continue their 2019 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series campaign with a two-race stay in the Hoosier State, first visiting Terre Haute Action Track on Saturday, October 12, followed by a visit to Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt on Sunday, October 13. Marks will enter the Indiana doubleheader tenth in the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series championship standings padded by 21 top-ten finishes.

Zearfoss with frustrating National Open; BAPS double-duty start ahead

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

JONESTOWN, Pa. (October 7, 2019) – Despite a recent weekend that ended short of main event competition, ultimately missing the opportunity to battle with the World of Outlaws for a $65,000 top prize at Williams Grove Speedway, Brock Zearfoss’ 2019 National Open campaign displayed promise, as well as perseverance, and the Jonestown, Pennsylvania-native is already looking ahead at his double-duty attempt at BAPS Motor Speedway on Saturday, October 12.

“It wasn’t the National Open results we wanted, but we’ll shake the weekend off and move forward. That’s all we can do,” Brock Zearfoss said, who ended his National Open 11th in Saturday’s Last Chance Showdown. “Regardless, I’m proud of my team and I’m proud of their work ethic. I’m excited to have the ‘3Z’ back in business. We have two chances to ‘park it’ on Saturday, so we’ll do our best to do so.”

Justin Sanders Wins Ocean Speedway Finale

PETERSEN MEDIA: Though he didn’t compete for the points championship at Ocean Speedway this season, Justin Sanders still capped off a very strong 2019 season at his home track as he picked up his sixth feature event win of the year at the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds.

“It is always cool to win the season finale,” Justin Sanders said. “It is a great momentum boost as you head into the off season, but our season isn’t quite done just yet. Thanks to all these guys for working so hard with me, and all these companies on the side of our car for their support.”

Sanders had a great night from start to finish, and it started with him timing the North County Plastering/Andy’s Construction/Yuba Sutter Aviation backed No. 17 entry in second fastest in time trials.

From the second row of his heat race, Sanders would pick up a couple of positions as he raced his way to a second place finish and earned a berth in the nightly Dash. Lining up on the outside of the front row for the Dash, the Aromas, CA driver would jump out to the early lead, picking up the win, and earning the pole for the final 30-lap feature event of the season at the ¼ mile bullring.

When the action came to life, Sanders got a great start over Brad Furr as he raced to lead in turns one and two. Once out in front, Sanders was able to distance himself from the field as he would quickly find himself in traffic.

With a very strong car underneath him, Sanders would not squander the opportunity to pick up his sixth win of the season at his home track. Though a late restart gave Furr a chance to throw something at Sanders, Sanders was too good on this night as he pulled his machine into victory lane.

“We were really fast all night long and it was a fun car to driver,” Sanders said. “It was a fun season at Ocean Speedway, and looking forward to a couple more races to close out our year.”

Justin and his team would like to thank North County Plastering, Andy’s Construction, Yuba Sutter Aviation, Roadside 24hr Service, 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, and Steve Duppman Racing for their continued support in 2019.

ON TAP: Sanders is unsure if he will be at this weekend’s Cotton Classic in Hanford, CA, but will for sure be at the Trophy Cup in Tulare, CA with Dale Miller Motorsports October 17-19th.

Tanner Carrick Tops the Action at Jacksonville Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA: The only thing that seemed to slow Tanner Carrick down on Saturday night at Jacksonville Speedway was a brief shower prior to the feature event. Turning in a very strong performance, Carrick wired the field and scored his first Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League win of the year.

“It was just an awesome night for our Keith Kunz Motorsports team,” Tanner Carrick said. “We were so fast all night long, and it’s just cool to get a win at Jacksonville Speedway.”

Starting on the pole of the feature event after earning high point honors following his charge from fifth to first in his heat, Carrick and the rest of the field were forced to wait out a rain cell that drenched the area prior to the feature event.

Once the rain cleared and the track worked back in, Carrick would lead the field to green alongside Zach Daum. Jumping out to the early lead over Daum, Carrick was very strong in the Walker Performance Filtration/Craftsman/CVC backed No. 71k entry.

On the hammer down, lightning fast surface, Carrick would build up a sizeable lead only to see his teammate, Rico Abreu reel him in over the race’s final 10 circuits. While Abreu was able to eliminate his lead and make things interesting for the fans in the final laps, Carrick was having none of it as he kept him at bay and cruised the feature event victory.

While Saturday highlighted the weekend for Carrick, he was also at Jacksonville Speedway on Friday night where he would charge from 16th and pick up a ninth place finish.

“The entire weekend was pretty good,” Carrick said. “We made some good headway in the feature on Friday night, and put ourselves in a great position on Saturday to get the job done. Thanks to everyone on this team for working so hard and sticking with me.”

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

2019 BY THE NUMBERS- Starts-46, Wins-2, Top 5’s-11, Top 10’s-26

ON TAP: Carrick and KKM will be at Belle-Clair Speedway on Friday night and at Southern Illinois Raceway on Saturday. .

Scelzi Scores Fifth KWS Win of Season as Championship Battles Tightens Up

PETERSEN MEDIA- Finally getting back to King of the West action for the first time since the Louie Vermeil Classic, Dominic Scelzi and the Roth Motorsports team didn’t miss a beat as Scelzi picked up the team’s fifth series win of the season as he pulled within just eight markers of the point lead with two events remaining.

“Our car felt great all night long,” Dominic Scelzi said. “The track was slick early in the night, but as things progressed they got some moisture into the surface and we got better. Thanks to Dennis and Teresa Roth for supplying us with the tools to win, and thanks to my guys for giving me a fast machine.”

Making his second and final start of the season at Kern County Raceway Park in Bakersfield, CA, Scelzi would time the Roth Enterprises/HR Livestock Transportation/Jason, Tara, and Cole Roth Cattle Co. backed No. 83 in sixth quickest in time trials.

Winning his heat race from his front row starting position, Scelzi would tabulate enough points for a spot in the Dash, where he would again find himself on the front row.

Getting the jump, Scelzi would take a liking to the middle grove of the speedway where he would take advantage of some moisture and pick up the win and earn the pole for the 30-lap feature event as he looked to cap the season sweep at the facility.

When the feature came to life, Scelzi would run side by side with Willie Croft for the first lap of the feature event before cleaning him on the exit of four in the first lap and really never looking back.

Out front, it was all about the Fresno, CA product as he set a torrid pace on the 3/8 mile facility. Hitting his marks lap after lap, Scelzi would wire the field and pick up his fifth KWS win of the season, and seventh overall by a margin of over four seconds.

“It felt great to get back in the Roth Motorsports car and grab another win and get a little closer to the point lead,” Scelzi said. “It is crunch time, and we have two races left at a couple of tracks that I am really confident at so I hope we can pull this off for the Roth Family.”

The Roth Motorsports team would like to thank Roth Enterprises, HR Livestock Transportation, Jason, Tara, And Cole Roth Cattle Co., Roth Investments, FK Rod Ends, Weld Wheels, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, Kent Performance, Kaeding Performance, and Smith Titanium for their support in 2019.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races: 28, Wins: 7, Top 5’s: 19, Top 10’s: 23.

ON TAP: Dominic Scelzi and Roth Motorsports get right back to work this weekend as they travel to Hanford, CA for the Cotton Classic.

Jake Williams Dominates at RumTown Speedway

The Green Mountain Gear-Heads Sprint Cars of New England season came to a conclusion Saturday, October 5th at the RumTown Speedway in Wentworth, NH where Jake Williams authored a dominating performance to take the Win. In spite of a mechanical issue that prevented Will Hull from competing in the feature event he was crowned the 2019 Champion for the Season.

Kurt Conklin and Jake Williams sat on the front row come feature time with Williams getting the jump to take the lead heading into turn one. Conklin settled into the second spot with Johnny Scarborough third and Floyd Billington fourth. The running order remained the same as the cars flew around the track until Chris Donnelly worked his way by Billington to take fourth with five laps complete. By lap ten leader Williams started to encounter lapped traffic but that didn’t diminish his lead as he continued to set a torrid pace. The only caution of the race occurred on lap nineteen as Robbie Bodwell, making his first start of the season, encountered mechanical issues and was done for the night. On the restart Williams once again blasted to the point with Conklin second and Chris Donnelly getting by Scarborough for third. Also on the restart Tanner Siemons, making his first career start in a Sprint Car, took the fifth spot from Billington, Siemons only held the position for two laps before Billington reclaimed the spot as the 30 lap event rapidly headed towards its’ conclusion. At the Checkers it was Jake Williams with an absolutely dominating win as he was never pressured for the top spot. Kurt Conklin crossed the line in second with Chris Donnelly third. Johnny Scarborough and Floyd Billington rounded out the top five.

That concludes the season for the Green Mountain Gear-Heads Sprint Cars of New England,

Sammy Swindell Earns First Career Pavement Winged Midget Victory to Extend Winning Streak to 49 Straight Years

Inside Line Promotions - LEE, N.H. (Oct. 7, 2019) - Sammy Swindell can breathe a lot easier now.

Swindell entered last Saturday's NorthEastern Midget Association race at Lee USA Speedway riding an epic 48-year winning streak. However, this year hadn't yielded a triumph and the pavement winged midget event was his final scheduled race of the season.

"It was something I'd like to get done, but it's like a lot of things were out of my control this year," he said in reference to continuing the winning streak. "We didn't get to race very much. Some of it with the weather the first part of the year and the way things played out later in the year."

Saturday was only the 21st race of the season and the first in seven weeks for Swindell, who was making only his third start of the year in the unique type of race car for Bertrand Motorsports.

"It was the fifth or sixth race ever that I've ran one of these cars and it's been so spread out," he said. "Every time you go back it's almost like starting over. All the tracks were different. This was the first time I went back to the same track with the same car. We had some confidence there. We had a good time the last time, but had one issue that we found after I'd ran it that was off. This time I was making some small changes."

Swindell won a heat race after starting second. That result didn't particularly matter as the 25-lap main event was lined up via a handicap system. Since it was Swindell's second time at the track this year he lined up fourth - the best starting position he's had in a pavement winged midget feature.

"The key was to get to the lead right away," he said. "They threw a little bit of a question mark in there because the last couple of laps of the race before some guys had crashed and they put oil down the frontstretch and going into turn one. They were under some curfew issues and they were trying to speed things up. There was some speedy dry on the track. When we first went out it was pretty slippery. Since it was so cold they gave us a couple of hot laps before the race. One guy got in the stuff and spun. After that they blew the stuff off the top, but it was still really, really slippery. My plan was to make a run around the top. Once we got our warm-up laps in I knew there was no way that was going to work.

"On the start the guy on the inside of me didn't get going so that left me the whole race track. I drove between the two guys in front about halfway, but I figured the bottom would be the best place to be. I was able to get ahead of the guy who started in front of me. Then I was on the guy who was leading, but it was where it was really narrow getting into turns one and two. The only choice I thought I had was to run the outside of him in turns three and four. The way he ran the first couple of laps he stayed out too much. When I took the lead he turned in early and I was able to stay in the gas and get around him."

Swindell took over the lead on Lap 4 and pulled away to a victory by more than three seconds.

"That's the first time I've had a car that drove that well all night and throughout the race," he said. "The biggest help was going back to the same place and knowing where the racing line was and where the grip was. The last time we changed gears and changed some things. This time all we had to do was fine-tune some things. It made it easier.

"Thanks to Tim and his team for the opportunity. I'm glad we were able to get a win."

Dominic Scelzi Dominates KWS-NARC Event to Close Gap on Points Leader in Championship Battle

Inside Line Promotions - BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (Oct. 7, 2019) - Sometimes a trip home is exactly what is needed.

Such was the case last Saturday for Dominic Scelzi, who dominated during a return to his home state by winning the King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series event at The Dirt Track at Kern County Raceway Park in impressive fashion.

Scelzi and Roth Motorsports were efficient throughout the night, qualifying sixth quickest before winning every race they entered. Scelzi captured both a heat race and the dash after starting second and he won the A Main from the pole.

"We had a little issue in qualifying running out of fuel, but we were able to still be sixth quick," he said. "In the heat the inside row got the jump. I got to the bottom and Chase (Johnson) missed the bottom. We got by him for the lead and then ran the bottom the rest of the way and won that. I chose the outside for the main event and it played out how the dash did. We were side by side through turns one and two and I got the lead off turn four on the first lap. We won by almost five seconds. It was really good. I felt like we were the best car there early in the year when we went there and we were the best car on Saturday. We put ourselves in the right position and we went unchallenged. To win races like that it's a big confidence booster."

The win was Scelzi's fifth of the season with the series and eighth career, moving him into a tie with Kyle Larson and Willie Croft.

"My goal going into the year was winning four series races," Scelzi said. "To surpass it and tie guys like Willie and Kyle means a lot. Being my first full year with the series I'm really happy with what we've done."

The victory moved Scelzi within eight points of the lead in the series championship standings with only two races remaining. The next event is this Saturday at Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, Calif., for the Cotton Classic. He will be in action in both the King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series and Sprint Car Challenge Tour divisions.

"It's a race that I'd absolutely love to win," he said. "We led in 2017 and I felt like we were the best car there. Then we blew the driveline out of it. That race is pretty historic and one I'd like to win. I think I've got three or four wins there so we know we can get the job done there."

Rico Abreu sweeps MOWA weekend at Jacksonville Speedway

Dates: Friday and Saturday, October 4th & 5th
Event: Short Track Championships
Series: Midwest Open Wheel Association (MOWA)
Track: Jacksonville Speedway (Jacksonville, Illinois)
Rico Abreu A-Main Finishes (Start):
Friday: 1st (2nd)
Saturday: 1st (4th)

ST. HELENA, Calif. (October 7, 2019) - Rico Abreu’s visit to Jacksonville Speedway in Jacksonville, Illinois, on Friday and Saturday, October 4 & 5, ended perfectly, not only earning back-to-back victories during Midwest Open Wheel Association (MOWA) competition, but collecting a pair of $2,000 top prizes in the process. For Abreu, the pair of victories increased his season win count to eight, now with three during MOWA action.

Earning his first win of the weekend in dominating fashion, Abreu, driver of the Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing/Abreu Vineyards/Curb Records/Lucas Oil Products/Golden State Restaurant Group/Southern Pacific Farms/Priority Aviation/Self Made Racing/Dancer Logistics/No. 24 sprint car, lapped most of the feature field on Friday, catapulting right to the top after starting second on the grid. Although forced to do things on a more challenging route on Saturday, the win was still convincing, ultimately driving by race leader, as well as fellow California-native, Buddy Kofoid, with ten circuits remaining.

“It was a great weekend for our team. We enjoy racing with MOWA so it worked out perfectly that we got to race twice before heading back to California,” Rico Abreu said, who earned a MOWA victory at Lincoln Speedway in Lincoln, Illinois, earlier this season. “Hats off to this team. We’ve been working our butts off the last few weeks, but things are coming together.”

Driving for Keith Kunz Motorsports, Rico Abreu also participated in the POWRi Midget Series programs at Jacksonville Speedway during the recent weekend, ending his two-day stint with a pair of runner-up finishes.

Up next on the schedule, Rico Abreu will return to California and prepare for the 34th running of the Cotton Classic at Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford. Abreu is the defending Sprint Car Challenge Tour winner of the prestigious California program, earning a $2,500 payday in the process. In hopes of defending his Cotton Classic crown, Abreu will enter the King of the West-NARC (410) portion of Saturday’s program.

Adding depth to Abreu’s winged stable, National Sprint Car Hall of Famer and Wooster, Ohio-native, Jac Haudenschild, will enter the Sprint Car Challenge Tour (360) portion of the Cotton Classic for Rico Abreu Racing.

Donny Schatz drives Ford to back-to-back podiums during National Open weekend, chops away at Sweet’s lead

Dates: Friday and Saturday, October 4th & 5th Event: National Open Series: World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Track: Williams Grove Speedway (Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania) Donny Schatz A-Main Finishes (Start): Friday: 3rd (3rd) Saturday: 3rd (8th)

2019 World of Outlaws Championship Standings: 2nd - 9146 points (14 points behind Brad Sweet)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (October 7, 2019) - Fargo, North Dakota’s Donny Schatz did not add another National Open title to his resume, but the ten-time and defending World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion did accomplish a pair of podium performances during his trip to Williams Grove Speedway during the recent weekend, simultaneously chopping away at Brad Sweet’s championship lead that entered the weekend at 40 points, but now sits at 14. Impressive enough, Schatz did so with the new FPS 410 power plant under the hood.

Schatz, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Toco Warranty/Ford Performance/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/Absolute Automation & Security/No. 15 sprint car, finished third during each of his Williams Grove Speedway starts over National Open weekend, highlighting both outcomes with a rally from eighth to third during the $65,000-to-win finale on Saturday, October 5.

A second place finish during heat race action on Friday, as well as a heat race victory on Saturday, paved the way to his respective podium runs.

“It was a consistent weekend for our team. My guys were able to give me a great race car both nights,” Donny Schatz said, who owns five National Open titles at Williams Grove Speedway. “The championship is always in the back of your mind. We are out here to win races. If we accomplish that, the championship will come on its own.”

A pair of stops in the Hoosier State stand ahead for Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing including an annual visit to the legendary Terre Haute Action Track on Saturday, October 12. The weekend will conclude on the highbanks of Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Indiana, on Sunday, October 13.

Schatz finished second during his 2018 visit to Terre Haute, the product of a charge from the outside of row six. Incidentally, a charge from row six resulted in Schatz' most recent fifth place outcome at Tri-State Speedway, also in 2018.

Schuett Produces Pair of Top-15 Finishes During MOWA Doubleheader

Inside Line Promotions - JACKSONVILLE, Ill. (Oct. 7, 2019) - Kyle Schuett scored a pair of top-15 finishes racing with a highly competitive Built Ford Tough MOWA Sprint Car Series field last Friday and Saturday at Jacksonville Speedway.

"It was another learning weekend and definitely wasn't the result we had hoped for," he said. "But this was the most competitive weekend this year with MOWA, with a lot of good drivers who aren't regulars like Rico (Abreu), (Buddy) Kofoid, (Skylar) Gee, (Hunter) Schuerenberg and others. Also, the track was much different than usual due to rain on both days."

Schuett kicked off the doubleheader on Friday by rallying in his heat race following a poor draw and start.

"I started sixth out of seven cars and fell back to seventh because of the ruts in the first turn of the race," he said. "I went to the bottom since no one else was there and was able to work my way up to fourth and was challenging for third at the finish."

Schuett's heat race effort slotted him in the 14th starting position in the A Main.

"We weren't bad, but our car was just too free," he said. "We probably should've detuned our motor a bit because I couldn't get past half throttle the whole way around the track. I think I passed one car and finished 13 th."

A sponsor commitment with the Carle and Christie Clinic Wellness, Fun and Medicare 101 event with Health Alliance meant little sleep for Schuett and his team prior to Saturday night's race.

"We finished up with the car after Friday night's race around 3:30 a.m. Saturday morning," he said. "Then we left the shop at 6:30 a.m. for the sponsor event so it was a short night."

Schuett had a better draw on Saturday and started second in his heat race.

"I started next to Kofoid, who was on the pole," he said. "The track was wide open around the top. Where you were when you got to the top was where you finished. He beat me to the first turn and I went into second and that's where I finished."

Schuett started 11th in the A Main. Rain prior to the B Main presented a challenging surface for teams adjusting their cars for the night's main event.

"We thought the track would hold more moisture after the rain, but it slicked off and we didn't tighten our car up enough," he said. "We were up to eighth before a red flag, but we fell back after that and finished 15 th."

Schuett finished the season third in the MOWA championship standings. He also earned the Rookie of the Year Award.

Hill Hampered by Misfortune Throughout Short Track Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Oct. 7, 2019) - Tough pill draws led to challenging nights for Alex Hill during the 32nd annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires at I-30 Speedway last weekend.

"It just wasn't a good weekend," she said. "Nothing went our way. We started in the back in our heat races each night and couldn't get anywhere because the track was pretty much one groove and hammer-down. Then after our heat races our nights got worse."

Due to the large field of cars at the ASCS Mid-South Region event, Hill was forced to compete each night in the C Main, where her evening went from bad to worse as she ended both nights on the hook after being involved in crashes.

"They were both racing deals," she said. "I was racing around fifth on Friday when I had contact with another car.

"On Saturday, I started fifth and was racing for second around the middle of the race when another car and mine got together. That crash was harder than the first night. I'm still pretty sore from that one."

Hoping her bad luck is behind her, Hill is looking forward to another racing doubleheader this Friday and Saturday at Creek County Speedway in Sapulpa, Okla., with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour.

"We're anxious to get last weekend behind us and move on to this weekend," she said. "Creek County is another challenging track for us. We're hoping for some better luck there."

Ohio Great Bob Hampshire Honored With Marquee Event This Saturday at Waynesfield Raceway Park

Inside Line Promotions - WAYNESFIELD, Ohio (Oct. 7, 2019) - It's impossible to find a more respected member of the short-track racing scene in Ohio than Bob Hampshire.

The 73-year-old native of Findlay moved to Alvada seven years ago, but his reach extends throughout dirt and pavement race tracks across the country.

"I've slowed down a lot," he said. "That happens with age. When you get a little older you don't have the strength and stamina, but we're still keeping at it."

Hampshire has been a race car owner since 1965 and has spent the last 40 years focused on winged sprint car and silver crown competition. He and fellow Ohio great Jack Hewitt captured the coveted Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions title in 1985 along with a pair of USAC Silver Crown championships in the 1980s. Hampshire has been a part of five USAC Silver Crown titles since then.

"It's neat to do it this many years being able to be out there weekly and survive," Hampshire said. "Sometimes it gets a little tough. Early on we used to fix so much stuff and build so much stuff. Now you can buy everything."

Racing has been more than a hobby for Hampshire, who started B&B Automotive with a partner more than 50 years ago. He since bought his partner out of the engine building business, which is also known in the racing community as Hampshire Racing Engines.

"When I first started out I had to have my own engine shop so I could afford to do it," Hampshire said. "I started my engine shop in 1967 and I've had it since then. I used to do a lot, but I've scaled back. I'm semi-retired so I do just a few. Early on I did souped up engines for street cars.

"I mostly wanted to be an owner because I didn't think an owner and driver would make a good combination because the owner is always worried about paying the bills."

Hampshire, who noted that he owned drag cars, go-karts and mini stocks prior to buying a sprint car for the first time in 1979, said he's only raced a couple of times. Most of his focus has been as a car owner and mechanic, winning numerous championships and races along the way. He was inducted into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame in 2008.

"It must be a sickness," he joked. "Every time I think I'm going to quit about two weeks later I don't think I can do that. Now my grandson is racing mini sprints. I have a lot of fun with him. Chad Kemenah, my son-in-law, is still racing as is my nephew, Greg Wilson.

"Everything my grandson wants to do is probably in the future. I still have a champ car, too. I really put it together so there's a car around here for my grandson. He's not old enough yet. I have a sprint car for him to start out in. He's 13-years-old so it'll be a couple more years."

As Hampshire's stellar career continues on, so does the appreciation from fellow Ohio natives.

Findlay resident Shane Helms has been a long-time fan of Hampshire. Helms raced and has owned a race team for many years. His father, Larry, drove for Hampshire many years ago.

"I think Bob is a self-made man," Shane Helms said. "Nobody handed him anything and he's built his teams out of his experience and his knowledge and his hard work. Being a young kid I used to go there during two-a-days in football. I'd always stop at his shop on my bike. I saw Bob do a lot with less and it's been in a lot different facets of racing. He's won a lot of races in a lot of different divisions. I think more than anyone else I know. I just think he's the best mechanic definitely in our area. I have so much respect for him as a person and for what he's done for the sport. I believe he's a legend in the sport."

Helms has partnered with Waynesfield Raceway Park owners Greg and Tammy Shobe to put on special events the last two years and the next one on the docket is the 2nd annual Bob Hampshire Classic sponsored by Kistler Racing Products this Saturday.

"The racing is incredibly ferocious," Helms said of the bullring in Waynesfield, Ohio. "It's very intense from front to back. I believe it's the best kept secret in the state of Ohio. We're working hard and we've added a lot of improvements and we plan on doing more. What Greg and Tammy Shobe have done is awesome. Also, Paul Kistler has been instrumental in the process and we want to thank him."

The 2nd annual Bob Hampshire Classic will feature the FAST Winged 410 Sprint Cars, Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series and USAC Midwest Thunder Midgets/AMSA Lightning Mini Sprints. The pits will open at 2 p.m. with the grandstands opening at 4 p.m. Racing is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m.

The winged sprint car main event will be 50 laps and will pay $5,630 to win. The crew chief on the winning car will also receive $630 and the Hard Charger Award winner given to the driver who passes the most cars will earn $63 for every car passed in the A Main.

"A lot of people I've raced with are still racing," Hampshire said. "The new young guys, it's fun to watch them. There's a lot of talent out there. I'll be hanging out. I'll be there talking to people."

Tickets are $18 for adults and $16 for seniors ages 62-years-old and older. Children ages 10-years-old and younger get in free. Pit passes are $35 per person.

Giovanni Scelzi Records Top Five During National Open Opener

Inside Line Promotions - MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (Oct. 7, 2019) - Giovanni Scelzi produced a top-five finish during the opening night of the Champion Racing Oil National Open hosted by Williams Grove Speedway last Friday.

Scelzi and car owner Bernie Stuebgen qualified third quickest in group action during both nights of the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series doubleheader, an impressive feat given that approximately 50 of the top drivers in the country were at the event.

"We qualified good, which is what you have to do," Scelzi said. "We had a good heat and dash as well."

Scelzi won his heat race before advancing from third to second in a dash. That lined him up on the outside of the second row for the main event.

"I stuck to the top and kept working it most of the race," he said. "We didn't have good restarts. That was the biggest struggle. I fell to sixth on one and got back to fourth. We were pretty happy with fourth. We had a great Friday night."

The fourth-place outing was Scelzi's 21st top five of the season and his fifth with the World of Outlaws.

Saturday started similar as Scelzi timed in third quickest out of the 24 drivers in his group. A third-place result in a heat race lined Scelzi up 18th for the main event.

"I had a solid original start in the heat and was running second, but a caution came out," he said. "I didn't get a good second start. Brad Sweet got the lead and went to the top in turns one and two. I wanted to keep clean air on my car and thought the bottom would be good, but it wasn't and Brent Marks got around me. That went from us getting in a dash to starting 18th in the feature. It's tough back there. I couldn't make up much ground in the feature."

Scelzi gained a trio of positions to finish 15th.

"It's not what we wanted, but to make the show and have speed was positive," he said. "The National Open is one of the highest ranking races. To have success and feel like we have a shot is a good feeling, especially doing that for the second year in a row."

LEVITTOWN, Pa., Oct. 7 — Mike Haggenbottom of Levittown, Pa. not only achieved his goal of competing in all the USAC Silver Crown races in 2019, but he earned his first top-five finish in the national sanctioning body’s top division and improved his finishing position in the final point standings for the year by two positions.

Haggenbottom, one of only a handful of drivers based in the Eastern United States to tackle USAC’s premier division, finished 11th in the driver standings during his rookie season last year and ninth for the 2019 season, which recently concluded.

His brother and car owner, John Haggenbottom of Bristol, Pa., finished eighth in the owner point standings for the 2019 season, which consisted of 10 events.

What’s more, the Haggenbottom Racing No. 24 got a top-five finish in the race closest to its home base, as Haggenbottom finished fourth in the 100-lapper at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa. on June 14.

“The race results don’t really show how far we came this year,” Haggenbottom said. “This year we’d at least seen most of the tracks we were racing on before, which helped. I think our asphalt program really turned the corner during the last few pavement races too.”

The USAC Silver Crown series is unique because it requires prowess on both asphalt and dirt tracks.

“Williams Grove was definitely the highlight of our year on the dirt, but I think the September race at Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis went well for us as far as our blacktop program goes,” Haggenbottom explained. “It was a little bit of everything that makes me say that. We put another car together, and then between Andy Belmont and Gene Nead tuning our car, I felt more comfortable there than I did in the past. We adjusted our shock program, and definitely made some strides.”

Belmont is a well-known retired stock car driver and team owner. He and his business, Belmont’s Garage of Langhorne, Pa., are longtime, enthusiastic supporters of Haggenbottom.

Nead used to be a NASCAR crew chief and now runs the NASCAR program for Brembo S.p.A, an Italian company that is a world leader in high-performance brakes. Haggenbottom has known him since 1986 when Haggenbottom worked for Frankie Kerr, another veteran NASCAR crew chief and a member of the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame.

In addition to owning his own landscaping business Haggenbottom works for ASi Racewear of Patchogue, N.Y., which produced some of Brembo’s racing caps this year in a deal that came about last December during business-to-business networking at the Performance Racing Industry (PRI) Show in Indianapolis. The entire relationship underscores how small a world racing can be.

Marketing and networking are the foundation of most successful businesses and racing teams, including Haggenbottom’s. In addition to Belmont Garage, ASi Racewear and Brembo Brakes, Haggenbottom’s team advertises Valley Forge, Inc. of King of Prussia, Pa.; Robison Racing Products of Dublin, Pa.; Speed Equipment Corp. (SEC) of Bensalem, Pa.; Kashady Automation of Bensalem, Pa.; Mershon Concrete of Bordentown, N.J.; Hooker Harness of Freeport, Ill.; PME Engines of Mooresville, N.C., and WDB Landscaping of Morrisville, Pa.

All of those companies followed Haggenbottom’s progress in 2019 closely through the media and the live-streaming telecasts by FloRacing.com.

“We had an ignition problem at Lucas Oil Raceway and a crash at Du Quoin that didn’t help, but we achieved our goal of running all the races, and overall as a team we were a lot better this year,” Haggenbottom said. “We want to thank the companies and individuals that supported our team; we couldn’t do it without them.”

The Ted Horn 100 at the Du Quoin State Fairgrounds in Du Quoin, Ill. was one of Haggenbottom’s best races of 2018, as he placed 11th and won the KSE Hard Charger Award there. But this Sept. 1 Du Quoin was not kind to him, as he hit the wall and flipped in Turn 2 on lap six of the 100 lapper. Luckily he wasn’t hurt.

“That used up our inventory of parts, and took us out of a good top seventh or eighth-place finish in the points,” he noted. “However, all in all I think we did pretty well for all the travel we had to do.”

Haggenbottom feels he got better at tire management this season too. “These races are so much longer than a sprint car race,” said the former United Racing Club champion and multi-time RaceSaver sprint car champion. “Learning to adjust to and run a full 100 miles is very different than a 25- or 30-lap sprint car feature.”

He added that the winningest driver in USAC Silver Crown history, five-time and reigning champion Kody Swanson of Nolen Racing, “really helped us with our asphalt program.

“He helped with set-up and driving tips,” Haggenbottom said. “He babysat us. We could go to him with any questions, which we really appreciated.”

Swanson ran into his own challenges at Du Quoin when his team experienced engine problems. He ended up borrowing Patrick Lawson’s car for that race to salvage some points, which helped him win the drivers’ championship.

“I felt really bad that we couldn’t help him at Du Quoin,” Haggenbottom added. “We brought along a spare motor so his team could use it if they needed it at Springfield and Eldora.”

Haggenbottom Racing used three cars for the 2019 campaign: a Maxim chassis for the dirt tracks and a Stealth and a Beast for the asphalt tracks. The asphalt cars’ engines are prepared by PME Engines. The dirt car’s engine is a Rider out of Mechanicsburg, Pa.

Haggenbottom won several contingency awards during 2019. He earned the KSE Racing Products Hard-Charger Award June 14 at Williams Grove Speedway after he qualified 15th and finished fourth.

He snagged the Wilwood Brakes award at Memphis International Raceway in Millington, Tenn. at the season opener in March; at the Hoosier Hundred at the Indiana State Fairgrounds on May 23; at Lucas Oil Raceway in Brownsburg, Ind. on May 24, and at Madison International Speedway in Oregon, Wis. on June 28.

Ryan Bernal Lands on KWS Podium at Kern County

PETERSEN MEDIA- After a month long break in the King of the West Schedule, Ryan Bernal and Tarlton Motorsports reunited at Kern County Raceway Park where the Hollister, CA driver had a very good run that culminated with a third place finish.

“It was great to get back with the Tarlton Motorsports team and have a good night” Ryan Bernal said. “I am hoping we can take some momentum from a third place finish and run well at Hanford this weekend, and Stockton in November.”

Bernal kicked Saturday night off by timing the Tarlton and Son, Inc./Executive Auto Sales/Pabco Gypsum backed No. 21 mount in fifth quickest in qualifying time trials.

Lining up on the front row of his heat race, the Hollister, CA driver would battle hard with Bud Kaeding for the race’s top spot. Coming up a little short, Bernal would finish second but still had enough points to garner a berth into the nightly Dash.

Picking up a third place finish in the Dash, Bernal would take the green flag from the third starting position for the series’ final feature event of the year at Kern County Raceway Park.

On a surface that offered up a little bit of everything, Bernal would slip back to fifth when the green lights flashed on initially. As the field continued to jockey for position, Bernal would soon move into fourth as he raced his way past Chase Johnson heading into turns three and four.

As the laps continued to click off in quick fashion, the leaders would find themselves running through the rear of the field. Making quick decisions, Bernal continued to run in fourth, until the 19thlap when he was able to shoot under Willie Croft to take over third.

Once in third, Bernal wasn’t falling off the podium. Razor sharp over the final 10 circuits, Bernal would accept the checkered flag with a third place finish as he continues to battle hard for the series’ Rookie of the Year honors.

“I can’t thank Paul Baines and the guys enough for their continued hard work and giving me a good car time and time again,” Bernal said. “I also have to thank the Tarlton family for their continued support and giving me an opportunity to run the 410 winged car this year. Like I said, it was a good night and hopefully I can use this momentum heading into Hanford, CA this weekend.”

Tarlton Motorsports would like to thank Tarlton and Son, Inc., Executive Auto Sales, Pabco Gypsum, Bandy and Associates, NOS Energy Drink, All Star Performance, and BG Lubricants for their support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races: 26, Wins: 0, Top 5’s: 9, Top 10’s: 17.

ON TAP: Tarlton Motorsports and Ryan Bernal will return to action on Saturday night for the Cotton Classic.

Must See Racing championship in two weeks at Ace Speedway

HOLLY, Mich. – A roller-coaster seven-month journey across the Midwest and Northeast, rife with competition, exciting moments and more, comes to an end on Oct. 18-19 for the Must See Racing Sprint Car Series presented by Engine Pro.

The winged 410ci asphalt sprint car tour will wrap up its 2019 season with a doubleheader during the sixth annual Rodney Cook Classic weekend at Ace Speedway in Altamahaw, N.C., the first visit by Must See Racing to the four-tenths-mile oval.

Full shows are planned for both Friday and Saturday nights, with two more opportunities for drivers to gain points as the season winds up to its conclusion.

The prospect of two complete racing programs is going to ratchet the intensity up in a big way, considering the points battle is still tight for several positions coming down the home stretch.

For the first time in five years, the championship has not been locked up going into the last weekend of the season, with Canadian Ryan Litt only trailing Jimmy McCune by 23 points entering the Ace double.

Litt's position in the standings is thanks to the MSR drop rule, which requires each driver who has attended 60 percent of the season's completed races to drop their lowest-scoring night from their cumulative total. Litt ranks third in overall points scored this season.

McCune, the four-time defending series champion, had an engine failure in the second event of the season at Michigan’s Birch Run Speedway that has had him batting from behind for most of the year, but he finally passed nephew Anthony for the top spot in both overall points and points with the drop during the most recent event on the schedule.

That event, which saw Anthony drop to third in the standings, has put Litt within striking distance of his first Must See Racing title, while Jimmy McCune is seeking his record-extending fifth crown in a row.

While they’ll be battling one another for every position down the stretch, that trio will also have a strong field of drivers to do battle with on track as well, including National Sprint Car Hall of Famer Jeff Bloom, Ohio open-wheel ace Charlie Schultz, Michigan veteran Tom Jewell, Carolina-area hotshoes Johnny Petrozelle III and Bobby Komisarski and more.

Open practice for all divisions at Ace takes place on Thursday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., with Friday’s pit gates opening at 9 a.m. Practice for the opening day show begins at 11 a.m., with qualifying following at 6 p.m. and racing firing off at 7:30 p.m.

Saturday’s schedule sees the pit gates again swinging open at 9 a.m. and practice kicking off at 11 a.m., with qualifying beginning at 4 p.m. and feature racing to follow.

The Saturday program will be co-headlined by a 140-lap late model stock car feature, in addition to the championship race for the Must See Racing sprint cars.

Bacon Takes on USAC Sprint Cars at Lawrenceburg after Four Crown Triumph

Lonnie Wheatley, WINCHESTER, Ind. (October 5, 2019) – Brady Bacon finished out last weekend’s “Four Crown Nationals” at Ohio’s Eldora Speedway on top of the heap with a USAC Silver Crown triumph that delivered the entrant championship to the Klatt Enterprises No. 6 team.

He’ll try to carry that momentum into Saturday night’s “Fall Nationals” at Lawrenceburg Speedway as the USAC National Sprint Car series continues action.

Last week’s racing action including four different events in three different cars including the BBR Racing No. 99 winged 410-ci Sprint Car, the Hoffman Racing / Mean Green No. 69 non-wing USAC Sprint Car and the Klatt Enterprises No. 6 Silver Crown machine.

Bacon broke out the BBR No. 99 for a pair of winged Sprint Car events at Eldora Speedway, racing into both Friday’s World of Outlaws and Saturday’s All Star Circuit of Champions features with an 11th place showing in Saturday’s season-ender for the All Stars his top winged result.

Bacon saved the best of the weekend for last by battling into the lead in the latter stages of the USAC Silver Crown portion of Saturday’s “Four Crown Nationals” at Eldora for his second series win of the year and the owner-clinching title.

“We kind of struggled and everything else, so it was good to get a win here and get an owner’s championship for these guys,” Bacon said. “They worked hard to make huge improvements over the last year and we won two races this year. We were in the hunt every time. I’m really happy for them, and hopefully, we can keep winning these races the next few years.”

Bacon’s USAC Sprint Car outings in the No. 69 car netted another pair of top-ten runs including a seventh-place run at Indiana’s Gas City I-69 Speedway on Thursday and then a fifth-place showing in Saturday’s “Four Crown” portion at Eldora.

With the pair of USAC Sprint Car top-tens last weekend, “The Macho Man” has now finished among the top-ten in 24 of the series’ last 25 events with four series wins over the course of the season and enters Saturday’s card at Lawrenceburg tied for fifth in points.

After a runner-up finish in last year’s “Fall Nationals” at Lawrenceburg, Bacon looks to continue that run of top-ten showings and potentially add to his overall total of ten wins thus far in 2019.

All Star Challenge record breaking prize money

The Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Series in conjunction with Heystbury Stockfeeds Simpson Speedway are pleased to announce that to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the All Star Challenge the show will have a boost in prize money. Both parties met recently to discuss the anniversary of this event and how to celebrate it. It was decided to increase the purse at the back of the field this time instead of the front, and as a result of this will pay $1000 to start the show.

“The Simpson Speedway Committee has the same goals as we do for this show and that is making it the most prestigious and richest 360 show in Australia. We now have $10K to win and $1K for 20th. This is serious money up for grabs. When we first introduced the show all those years ago we started off at $5K to win and $500 to start and we were pretty pumped to be able to offer that; but now both of these have doubled. The total purse on offer now is $32,500. We are also looking at paying out contingency prizes for the B Main which will be advised when confirmed. Last year’s race had everyone pumped and telling us it was the best race they had seen and hopefully this incentive will make it happen again this season. So make sure you lock in Saturday January 18th 2020”. Mandy Searle said

NASCAR star Kyle Larson confirms Hangtown 100 entry at Placerville Speedway

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA – October 4, 2019…The Elk Grove Ford Hangtown 100 is already one of the more anticipated events in California this season and things just got a little more spicy with the confirmation that NASCAR star Kyle Larson will compete both nights on November 19th and 20th.

The November double header at Placerville Speedway will be a must attend showcase featuring the USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midgets and the USAC Western States Midgets, along with the Wicked Energy Gum NW Focus Midgets presented by Cognitive Warriors. Following the action on opening night there will be a post-race party on the fairgrounds with food, drinks, a live band and a lot of fun to be had.

In 2007, at the ripe young age of 14, Larson competed in his very first Sprint Car race at the Placerville Speedway and earned his initial victory at the track that same season. The El Dorado County Fairgrounds based facility was also where the Elk Grove, California native wrapped up his Golden State KWS-NARC Series title in 2010.

“We are excited to have Kyle Larson in the field at the inaugural Elk Grove Ford Hangtown 100,” commented Elk Grove Ford President Matt Wood. “Kyle grew up racing around Northern California and is one of the largest fan favorites that we have out here, so it will be great to have him on hand. What he has done so far in his career is amazing and it’s really special that he continues to have such a passion for dirt track racing. We hope everyone has reserved their seats because it’s going to be a thrilling event.”

Earlier this season Larson came oh-so-close to earning his first career Chili Bowl Midget Nationals victory, coming home second after a thrilling duel with Keith Kunz Motorsports teammate Christopher Bell. In 2011 Larson earned Rookie of the Year honors with the USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget Series and swept the Belleville Midget Nationals that same season. The 27-year-old has also captured the famed Turkey Night Grand Prix on two different occasions.

At the Hangtown 100 Wednesday night’s A-main will be 100-laps around the Placerville Speedway red clay oval with the winner picking up a $20,000 payday. The two-night event will utilize a modified Trophy Cup style format, featuring larger than normal inverts, which is guaranteed to create non-stop action on the bullring.

Reserved seating continues to be on sale for the Tuesday and Wednesday November 19th and 20th Elk Grove Ford Hangtown 100 and can be purchased by visiting www.hangtown100.com/tickets
A rain date has also been established for Thursday November 21st in case of inclement weather. To stay up to date with event news be sure and visit www.hangtown100.com and follow along on Twitter Hangtown100 (@hangtown100) | Twitter

Originally a gold mining camp known as Old Dry Diggins in 1848, the settlement earned its most common moniker of “Hangtown” in 1849 because of its reputation for vigilante justice carried out by hangings. After one such crime, an impromptu citizens jury met to consider the fate of the three accused. The jury wasted little time reaching a verdict, but the question was asked, what will be done to them. Someone shouted, “Hang them!”

The majority agreed, the historical precedent was set, and word quickly traveled, creating the famous and colorful Hangtown title. A milder name was then requested after a few years and in 1854 the city of Placerville was incorporated. The Placerville Speedway was originally known as Hangtown Speedway when it came into existence back in 1965. It took on the current name in the early 1980’s and has grown to be one of the more popular tracks in the region.

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. Then go north on Placerville Drive to the Fairgrounds. The physical address is 100 Placerville Dr., Placerville, CA 95667.

POWRi Double at Jacksonville for Cannon McIntosh this Weekend

Lonnie Wheatley, BIXBY, Okla. (October 4, 2019) – The Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League points chase resumes for 16-year-old Cannon McIntosh with a pair of events at Jacksonville Speedway this weekend.

The pair of events atop the ¼-mile clay oval in Illinois take place on Friday and Saturday.

This weekend’s action follows a pair of strong outings last time out in POWRi action for McIntosh with a pair of top-five finishes aboard the Dave Mac Motorsports Toyota-TRD Spike No. 08 Midget on September 13-14.

“It was a much-needed weekend for us with a podium finish and a top-five,” McIntosh explains.

The September 13 event at Belle-Clair Speedway in Belleville, IL, began with McIntosh winning his heat race to earn the third-starting position. He went on to post a fifth-place finish at night’s end.

“The car felt really good at Belle-Clair,” McIntosh says. “I made one mistake early and let three or four cars get by, but we were able to work back up there.”

Moving on to Macon Speedway the next night, McIntosh raced from seventh to third in his heat race to earn the front row outside starting position for the main event.

“We led nine laps or so early on, then (Logan) Seavey showed the bottom,” McIntosh recalls. “I tried it, but he was the only one that could really go well down there.”

McIntosh finished out the night in third.

A sixth-place finisher last time out at Jacksonville on September 6, McIntosh has his sights set on POWRi National Midget win this weekend.

Along with Toyota-TRD, other marketing partners making the 2019 Cannon McIntosh slate of events possible includes Sanders and Associates, Car and Fleet, Mobil 1, Speedway Engine Development, Best Graphics, Fieldhouse Gear, Precision Inspection, Panels by Smoke, Walker Performance, Sanders Wheels, American Discount Brake and Muffler, D&N Fabrication, Darling Ingredients, PJ’s and Hinds Family.

Waynesfield to host FAST and BOSS championship battle for Bob Hampshire Classic Oct. 12

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Friday, Oct. 4, 2019

WAYNESFIELD, Ohio – Waynesfield Raceway Park will host one of the final sprint car races in Ohio for 2019 when the 2nd Annual Bob Hampshire Classic hits “The Field” Saturday, Oct. 12 featuring the FAST 410 Sprint Series, the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS) non-wing stars and the USAC D2 Thunder Midgets joining forces with the AMSA Mini Sprints for a non-wing matchup.

The event honors the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame car owner and mechanic who resides in nearby Alvada, Ohio. Hampshire has owned a race car since 1979 and has earned numerous feature victories with drivers like Jack Hewitt, Jac Haudenschild, Greg Wilson, Johnny Beaber, Keith Kaufman, Rick Ferkel and many others. Recently, he teamed up with as a mechanic with driver Kody Swanson to win four USAC Silver Crown championships. Hewitt drove Hampshire’s famous #63 to the 1985 All Star Circuit of Champions title and USAC Silver Crown titles in 1986 and 1987.

“We want to pay respect to one of the greatest sprint car mechanics ever. When I was growing up Bob Hampshire’s cars were always THE car to beat around our region,” said Waynesfield Promoter Shane Helms.

The event is the final race of the year for the FAST series with Cole Duncan coming in as the point leader, having six overall wins in 2019 as of this press release. Lee Jacobs, Tyler Gunn, Jordan Harble and Cody Bova round out the top five in series’ points.

FAST has appeared three times at Waynesfield in 2019 with Monrovia, Indiana’s Justin Peck, Vienna, West Virginia’s Cale Conley and Plano, Texas’ TJ Michael scoring the wins. NASCAR star Christopher Bell, who won the inaugural Bob Hampshire Classic in 2018, has indicated he will be back to defend his title at Waynesfield on Oct. 12.

For the BOSS sprints, their only appearance at “The Field” in 2019 came during the 11th Annual Jack Hewitt Classic where Milford, Ohio’s Cody Gardner scored his first ever sprint car win. However, 2010 and 2011 Waynesfield champion Matt Westfall currently sits atop the series’ points and as of press time would earn the BOSS title by taking the green flag at Atomic Speedway Saturday.

Local driver Dustin Ingle, who cut his teeth racing at Waynesfield, sits third in BOSS points, with Kory Crabtree and Dustin Webber rounding out the top five. Waynesfield’s 2013 track champion Dallas Hewitt sits sixth in the standings.

The 50-lap FAST feature will reward the winner $5,630 and just making the feature will earn a driver $630 – the significance being Hampshire’s race cars all carried the number 63. The BOSS feature winner will earn the series’ standard $1,500 to win. The USAC D2 Thunder Midgets/AMSA Mini Sprints will pay $500 to win the feature.

Also, in the FAST feature, the hard charger – the driver who advances the most positions from their original starting spot – will earn an additional $63 for every position. Also, the crew chief of the winning FAST feature car and the crew chief of the winning BOS feature machine will each earn $630 in honor of Hampshire.

Pit gates will open at 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 12 with general admission gates opening at 4 p.m. Racing will get underway at 6 p.m. Tickets for the Bob Hampshire Classic are $18 for adults (11 and up); $16 for senior citizens (62 and up); with kids 10 and under admitted free. Pit passes will be $35.

Carney Vies for Short Track Nationals Prize this Weekend!

Lonnie Wheatley, EL PASO, Texas (October 4, 2019) – After an idle weekend, El Paso native John Carney II is ready to make a run for the $10,041 winner’s share at this weekend’s 32nd Annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, AR.

The two-day tilt atop the high-banked, ¼-mile clay oval takes place on Friday and Saturday.

The driver currently sitting sixth in Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour points is gunning for a second consecutive STN championship feature start after a 13th-place run among last year’s field of 74. And he’s looking for a finish near the front this year aboard the Sander Construction/South Plains Auto Transport/Mesilla Valley Transportation No. J2 Sprint Car.

“We have a good car and we’ve been going really well this year,” Carney says. “If things fall into place, we can be right there with a chance to win this one.”

Carney’s most recent Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour competition at Lucas Oil Speedway’s “Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial” two weekends ago didn’t go as planned.

The track was pretty heavy in the heats and qualifiers, so it really limited passing,” Carney said of the Thursday portion of the three-night event. “We got pinched down and turned around in the heat and that pretty much killed that night.”

Friday brought improvement with a 14th-place feature showing.

“Friday was better, but our Thursday points had us buried for Saturday,” Carney says.

“Saturday was kind of the same, it was greasy in the qualifier and I hiked up, snapped the car and hit the cushion and the wall,” Carney says.

Buried in a “B” Main, Carney made a charge only to be derailed.

“We were rolling up there and then overheated our car,” Carney comments.

The weekend ended a stretch of three consecutive feature wins.

Carney looks to renew that winning streak this weekend in Little Rock.

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

Quick Stats: 35 Races, 6 Wins, 18 top-fives, 22 top-tens.

Next Up: 32nd Annual Short Track Nationals at I-30 Speedway (Little Rock, AR) on Friday and Saturday.

Bellm Makes Short Track Nationals Return this Weekend!

Lonnie Wheatley, NIXA, Mo. (October 4, 2019) – Kyle Bellm and the familiar No. 14k Sprint Car team return to I-30 Speedway’s COMP Cams Short Track Nationals this weekend after a year’s absence.

The $10,041-to-win event takes place on Friday and Saturday.

“We were having a baby at this time last year, so we had to miss it,” Bellm says. “Short Track Nationals has always been one of our favorite events to go to, so we’re looking forward to getting back there.”

Bellm’s most recent visit the high-banked, I-30 Speedway clay oval in June netted a top-five finish.

“We had a pretty decent car that night, we ran fifth and probably could have been a couple of positions better had I not pressed the issue,” Bellm says.

With five STN preliminary feature starts to his credit, Bellm know the route to Short Track Nationals success.

“We just have to hope to draw well and then pass cars all night,” Bellm explains. “As long as we can accomplish that, it can make for a good weekend.”

Bellm’s most recent action was with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour at Lucas Oil Speedway’s “Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial” in Wheatland, MO, two weeks ago. It wasn’t the weekend Bellm and crew had hoped for.

“We had a couple of little issues and just some bad luck, it definitely wasn’t the weekend we were planning on having,” Bellm explains. “The good side is that it’s just one weekend and it’s over. We start fresh this weekend.”

Despite the Hockett/McMillin Memorial struggles, Bellm was able to take some knowledge away from it.

“We found some things and fixed a couple of issues that should make a big difference,” Bellm wraps up. “I feel like we should good for this weekend.”

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

Quick Stats: 31 Races, 1 win, 6 top-fives, 15 top-tens.

All Star Champion Aaron Reutzel Eyes National Open Loot

Lonnie Wheatley, CLUTE, Texas (October 4, 2019) – Ten wins over the past seven weekends to push the season win total to 18.

That’s what Aaron Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team extended the numbers to with last Saturday’s Winged 410-portion of Eldora Speedway’s “Four Crown Nationals” triumph in Rossburg, OH, to secure a second consecutive All Star Circuit of Champions title.

It capped off a week that also included a pair of World of Outlaws podium finishes with a third-place run at Jacksonville Speedway on Wednesday and then a runner-up showing in Friday’s “Befour the Crowns” event at Eldora.

“No question, it was a good week for us,” Reutzel summarized.

The driver of the Folkens Brothers Trucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X Sprint Car will try to keep the recent trend of victory lane visits intact at this weekend’s World of Outlaws-sanctioned, $65,000-to-win National Open at Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania’s Williams Grove Speedway on Friday and Saturday.

“We have had some good luck and good runs in big-money races lately and we’ve also been good at Williams Grove the last couple of times,” Reutzel says. “Hopefully we can keep that going this weekend.”

Reutzel has raced to victory lane in each of his last two Williams Grove Speedway starts including the “Tommy Hinnershitz Classic” just two weeks ago. This time, along with the fierce contingent of Pennsylvania Posse members, he’ll have a band of Outlaws to outgun as well.

“I’m just hoping we can get another World of Outlaws win or two before the season ends,” Reutzel comments

Set to run all but a pair of remaining World of Outlaws events in 2019 with the All Star season in the books, Reutzel got off to a good late-season start with finishes of third and second last week.

It began at Jacksonville on Wednesday with Reutzel and the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment team finishing the night out on the podium.

“We fought hard, we had the car too tight all night long,” Reutzel explains. “I pulled in during the Dash because it was so tight, but then we had it really good for the feature.”

It was good enough that Reutzel was able to race forward from the eighth starting position to claim the show position aboard the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspensions entry.

“That place is so intense, it’s just back and forth with different cars and you’re constantly racing with someone,” Reutzel says of the Jacksonville experience. “We had a good car and we probably finished about where we should have.”

Moving on to Ohio’s Eldora Speedway for the first of two nights, Reutzel moved up to second on the podium on Friday night.

“I felt like we had a winning car, I nearly passed for the lead at least once,” Reutzel recalls. “I got so caught up on racing for the lead that I forgot to pull the wing back and got a little too loose at the end.”

Reutzel closed out the weekend with a second consecutive Four Crown Nationals triumph on Saturday to close out the All Star Circuit of Champions season in style.

“We qualified pretty well, but then we just weren’t as good in the Dash,” Reutzel says. “We got the car good for the feature though and it was pretty easy from there.’

With ten wins in his last 20 starts, Reutzel looks to keep that momentum going at Williams Grove’s National Open this weekend.

2019 Quick Stats: 79 races, 18 wins, 41 top-fives, 54 top-tens.

Next Up: World of Outlaws Sprint Cars at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, PA, on Friday and Saturday.

Hagar Earns Eighth Win of Season During Event at Jackson Motor Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BYRAM, Miss. (Oct. 3, 2019) - Derek Hagar made the most of his visit to Jackson Motor Speedway last Saturday as he was able to pick up his eighth victory of the season.

Hagar swept the night by winning a heat race and the ASCS Mid-South Region main event.

"We had a good car all night long," he said. "We started sixth in our heat race and passed a lot of cars. We made it up to first and were able to win it."

Hagar's heat race performance labeled him the high point driver of the night. His daughter was good luck and drew him the No. 1 during the feature redraw, which started him on the pole of the main event.

"We maintained the lead from the start," he said. "I led every lap and we were able to win the race. I'm excited to get another one under my belt this season. We have a competitive race this weekend so hopefully we can carry that over."

Hagar will take the momentum from his win into one of his favorite events - the 32nd annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires Nationals. I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., hosts the ASCS Mid-South Region doubleheader this Friday and Saturday. More than 50 drivers have already pre-entered.

"My first Short Track Nationals was back when I was 15-years-old," Hagar said. "There were 100 and some cars there. It's still a highly competitive race. I'm not sure how many features I've made since I started racing it, but hopefully we can find ourselves in Victory Lane this weekend."

Hagar finished second during the preliminary night of the event last year. His best result during the finale was a seventh-place run in 2017.

Henderson and Sandvig Racing Tackling Short Track Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - SPENCER, Iowa (Oct. 3, 2019) - Justin Henderson returns behind the wheel of the Mike Sandvig Racing No. 7 this weekend for two nights of action at the 32nd annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires.

I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., hosts the ASCS Mid-South Region doubleheader on Friday and Saturday.

While this will be the duo's 26th and 27th races together in the 2019 season, it will mark their first attempt at 360ci winged sprint car competition. Henderson has competed in several 360 races this season in his family owned race car, but up until this point had only piloted the Sandvig car in 410 sprint car competition.

Together they are hoping to add their names to the prestigious list of past winners and capture the $10,041 winner's share for Saturday night's finale.

"I've been running one of Mike's motors all year in my own 360 deal so I feel pretty comfortable coming into this race," Henderson said. "We switched frames a few weeks ago and the car has been extremely fast so I think we're pretty well set up to compete."

Henderson made his first ever Short Track Nationals start in 2012 when he finished 12th. His last visit came in 2013. With 50-plus drivers currently pre-registered for the crown jewel event and more expected to show up, Henderson knows he has his work cut out if he wants to capture the win.

"I really like I-30 and way back in 2012 when I ran there we were fast right out of the box," he said. "But there are a lot of other drivers who want the same thing we do and who are competing as well so it's going to be a fun challenge."

While the prestige of the event and the money on the table make the race a 'bucket list' event for Henderson to win, he is only focused on winning for his car owner and to give him a triumph in their maiden season together.

"Sure, it's a big race and it would mean a lot to win it, but honestly I just want to get a win for Mike," he said. "He's supported me a lot this season and I really want to give him a win as an owner in 2019. The fact that it might be at a prestigious event would just be a cherry on top of things."

‘Heavy hitters’ lining up for Keystone

With barely a week to go before the most anticipated race of the season for RaceSaver sprint cars in Pennsylvania and surrounding states, more than 50 cars have already preregistered for the Keystone RaceSaver Challenge on Saturday, October 12, at Port Royal Speedway.

Here’s an indication of how competitive the event known as the “Blue Collar Classic” of affordable racing will be: those drivers have accounted for 29 PA Sprint Series wins in 2019, along with numerous others in the Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series, Laurel Highlands Sprint Series, Alleghany Sprint Tour, Ohio Thunder Sprint Series and Virginia Sprint Series.

Leading the group is ”Iceman” Ken Duke Jr. of Selinsgrove, the 2019 PASS Champion and probable national champion for the IMCA/RaceSaver Sprints. Duke has won eight PASS features this season and two with Laurel Highlands.

Defending PASS Champ “Zach Daddy” Newlin of Millerstown, who finished second in this year’s points and also is in the top five nationally, has won four events in the series, as has red-hot rookie Garrett Bard of Wells Tannery, who only began racing with PASS in July. Second-year driver Devin Adams and young veteran Drew Ritchey have three PASS wins apiece, with Ritchey also having won four Laurel Highlands features.

Other PASS winners include Doug Dodson, John Walp, “Nitro Nick” Sweigart, Cale Reigle and Scott Ellerman.

Challengers who have won elsewhere include Greg Dobrosky with six Allegheny Sprint Tour wins, Justin Clark with four wins in Ohio, as well as Brad Mellott, Larry McVay, Jeff Geiges (three Mid-Atlantic wins), Jared Zionkowski, Tim Tanner, Jonathan Jones and Daren Bolac.

Recording Artist Trey Rose to Kick Off $31,500 Paul Peters Memorial Saturday October 12th at 82 Speedway Featuring Sprint Car Bandits, TOMS, Ltd Mods & Factory Stocks!

Petty, TX (10/03/19) Event Marketing & Publicity by DarinShort.com. Long-time North Texas dirt track racecar owner Paul “Patsy” Peters passed away on July 9th, 2019. He was the father of 82 Speedway’s track owner, Tracy Peters. In honor of his life that was ingrained in the dirt track racing community of this region, Tracy is putting on a massive event on October 12th at 82 Speedway at 6pm, the $31,500 Paul Peters Memorial – featuring the 360 C.I. Sprint Car Bandits® (SCB) series, the TOMS - Touring Outlaw Modified Series (TOMS) with added purse from 82 Speedway, plus a whopping $2,000 to win in the Hoyte Dodge Chrysler Jeep of Sherman Texas Factory Stocks and $1,200 to win in the TRC Team Richardson Chassis Limited Modifieds. Paul’s 71st birthday would have also been on October 12th – thus the selection of this date for the event. Again, please note the early start time of 6pm. See below for details.

And today, we’re pleased to announce that Trey Rose, contestant on NBC’s The Voice earlier this year, will be on hand during Sprint Car Bandits pre-race Fan Fest from 5:30-6pm signing autographs and meeting fans, and then singing the national anthem live in front of the crowd during opening ceremonies. Visit and interact with Trey at www.facebook.com/TreyRoseMusic and while you’re there you can also listen to some of his great tracks and watch YouTube videos from his The Voice appearances. If you happen to visit his Facebook page, make sure to mention you’re looking forward to him coming to 82 Speedway!

We would like to take a moment to thank Paul Peters Motor Sports for adding money to the Factory Stock purse – for the first 15 finishers, which has allowed us to up their purse from $1,200 to $2,000 to win. We would also like to thank Texoma Dent Specialists for adding money to the Factory Stock purse. If your business would like to become involved in this great event, please email Darin at dssm93@msn.com – and you’ll get a quick response, and we’ll go from there.

The beautiful ¼ mile dirt oval of 82 Speedway is located about 15 minutes west of Paris, directly on Hwy 82 in Petty Texas.

Fans can expect a full field of many of the region's best dirt track racers to be on hand on this very special night. Paul was known to have a big personality and an even bigger presence, so it’s only fitting to have an event of this magnitude in his honor. Paul was heavily involved throughout the years with several drivers in several divisions, and this huge event will help to celebrate the memory of his life in racing.

NOTE EARLY START TIMES! The pit area on Saturday October 12th will open by 2pm, with the spectator grandstands opening by 5pm. Sprint Pit Meeting/Cutoff 5:15pm, TOMS Pit Meeting/Cutoff 5:15, '82 Divisions Draw Cutoff & Pit Meeting 5:30, Sprint Car Bandits Fan Fest with Trey Rose (behind grandstand) 5:30-6pm,Track Packing/Hot Laps 6:00; then we’ll go right into the racing program.

Coolers should not take up grandstand seating if the crowd size dictates. Transponders & RaceCeivers required in all divisions (nightly track rental of transponders available for $15 plus ID).

If you’ve yet to visit 82 Speedway, it is much closer to DFW than a lot of people think and is NOT the old Paris Speedway southeast of Paris. As a point of reference, including a quick fuel stop, you can get from the intersection of Bass Pro Shops/I-30/Bush in Garland to 82 Speedway in 80 minutes.

TRACK DIRECTIONS: Track is located about 1 mile east of Petty Texas right on Hwy 82, which is about 20 minutes east of Bonham and 15 minutes west of Paris. 16369 US Hwy 82 Petty, TX 75470. Go to www.82speedway.com or www.Facebook.com/82Speedway for track details.

82 Speedway features a 60’ racing surface that is .26 miles on the pole (1/4 mile) in distance, and the groove is right at 1/3 mile. There are no walls around the entire track – with lots of runoff space wherever you’re racing, which leads to less tore up equipment. Over-sized grandstands that each have unobstructed viewing from whatever spot you choose to view from. Huge spectator and pit parking areas will greet everyone on their arrival. Track owners, Shelley and Tracy Peters who are some of the nicest people you’ll ever come across, and they have been reinvesting in the permanent structure of the facility since they purchased it last year. Bottom line, if you haven’t been there, here’s your chance on Saturday, October 12th!

Here’s the October 12th purse structure for the SCB “Paul Peters Memorial 25” presented by www.FixYourGenerator.com feature: $2,000 – 1,000 – 600 – 500 – 400 – 390 – 380 – 370 – 360 – 350 – 340 – 330 – 320 – 310 – 300…to start. All non-qualifiers or non-starters will each receive $100. There is no entry fee, no series membership fee and a $20 nightly draw fee. Drivers should go to www.SprintCarBandits.com prior to arrival for complete rules and procedures information…which will all be in effect. The www.KoolTrikes.com heat races will set up the feature lineups, and the top-points driver will be awarded $100 from www.FixYourGenerator.com for starting on the pole. Dalton Stevens was the last top-points driver on September 28th.

If a driver chooses to compete in more than one division on the same night, the driver must purchase an additional pit pass per division entered.

If the races rain out before the completion of the heat races, hold on to your ticket stub, as it will be valid for the next scheduled race of same ticket price value (in other words, if tickets that night were $15, the next event you will have a $15 credit when you redeem your ticket stub from the previous event). The exact same procedure will be in effect regarding pit passes. If the races rain out after the heat races, the event is considered complete, and any remaining races will not be rescheduled and all drivers will receive start money for their scheduled division that night (for any of the feature events that rained out). There will be no grandstand tickets valid for a future date if races are rained out after the completion of heat races.

Note to drivers: all race teams must run Westhold transponders and RaceCeivers. Track rental is available.

Please make plans to join us for the $31,500 Paul Peters Memorial at 82 Speedway in Petty Texas on Saturday October 12th at 6pm for a huge night of racing – all in remembrance of the track owner’s father, Paul Peters.

Walter, Torque Racing caps 2019 season, focuses on diverse 2020 campaign in 410 ranks

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) October 2, 2019 – Josh Walter and the Torque Racing team wrapped up a rollercoaster 2019 season with an eventful evening of Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series action, during the Wisconsin Sprint Car Championships at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, Sept. 28.

Walter was among 31 IRA 410 Sprint Car Series drivers to check in for the final race of the 2019 season at the team’s hometown track. The 14th-year Sprint Car driver was scheduled to start second in the third 10-lap IRA heat race. However, two false starts moved Walter and polesitter Ben Schmidt back a row on the initial start.

After beginning the race from the fourth starting spot, Walter dropped back to fifth when Kris Spitz snuck past in turn two. Walter maintained the fifth spot throughout the remainder of the 10-lap event to earn a transfer spot to the 30-lap IRA A-main event.

Walter rolled off from the 17th starting spot in the IRA A-main and turned in a strong effort in the first half of the event to move into 14th place by passing Wayne Modjeski. After the second of fifth caution flags on lap 14, Walter found the going to be a little more challenging as he slid back to 17th in the running order.

After the lead two cars of Lynton Jeffrey and Austin McCarl collided while racing for the lead along the backstretch on lap 28, Walter restarted the race 15th. However, disaster struck on the next circuit as Walter flipped his 12W machine along the treacherous cushion in turn four on lap 29.

He emerged from the car uninjured, but he was done for the night and scored 19th in the final running order in a race won by Jeremy Schultz.

After originally intending to run the complete Midwest Sprint Car Association 360 Sprint Car schedule in 2019, Walter ended up splitting his time between the MSA 360 division and the Bumper to Bumper IRA 410 Sprint Car Series in 2019.

Walter notched a pair of A-main victories, four top-five and seven top-10 A-main finishes to go along with three heat race victories and one B-main triumph in 14 MSA 360 Sprint Car events.

In late July, Walter and the Torque Racing team turned their attention to the IRA 410 Sprint Car ranks and he ended up making seven 410 starts with one top-10 A-main showing and one heat race victory to his credit.

Walter ended up 22nd in the PDTR 360 Sprint Car point standings, 24th in the final MSA 360 Sprint Car point standings and 28th in the IRA 410 Sprint Car Series point standings during the 2019 season.

Looking ahead to the 2020 season, Walter says the team will be sticking with the 410 engine package and most likely run a pick-and-choose type of schedule in and out of the state of Wisconsin.

“With a job, a family and young kids who are active in various things, it is hard for us to commit to running a set schedule of races with a series, so we are planning to run the races and tracks that we enjoy, make sense to us and fit into our personal schedule next year,” Walter said. “We will be running several races around the area and we are also hoping to do some travelling out of the state as well to some tracks that we've always wanted to race at. It should be a fun season.”

Torque Racing sponsors for the 2019 season include JDV Lawncare, Brittany's School of Dance, Sheboygan by Owner, Plymouth Tap, Doug's Quality Beef, Tiffany's Wildtree, Cow Pies, Full Throttle Ink, Lakehouse Bar & Grill, Home Transitions, Oostburg Concrete, Kombucha Brothers, Platinum Restoration Services, Ruh Custom Woodworking, RC Custom Design and Pedal Down Promotions.

A FUN AND EXCITING RACING ADVENTURE!

Sills, Argabright team up for new and memorable story

Hall of Fame racer Jimmy Sills enjoyed a spectacular career that took him to every corner of America and spanned over four decades. Sills recently collaborated with longtime motorsports author Dave Argabright to create Life With Luke, a 312-page hardbound autobiography that promises to entertain and enlighten readers for years to come. NASCAR Hall of Fame racer Jeff Gordon contributed the foreword to Life With Luke.

A highly-respected racer who was inducted into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame as well as the USAC Hall of Fame, Sills is known as one of the great storytellers of our time. With his well-known wit and upbeat delivery, Sills looks back across his career with equal parts humor, emotion, and honesty. His unique life experience makes for fascinating reading, particularly because Sills was present throughout an extremely dynamic period for sprint car and USAC Silver Crown racing.

From the birth of the World of Outlaws to present times, Sills has been a keen observer of the sport and the people within. He delivers a moving, emotional testimony of the challenging life of a sprint car racer, and he provides a unique behind-the-scenes look at a sport that is both intense and dangerous.

Argabright, one of the most prolific authors in racing today, helps tell the story in a style familiar to followers of the sport. With a poignancy rarely matched, Sills and Argabright capture the soaring highs and the painful lows of the racing experience.

Most of all, there is good humor. Sills, gifted with the ability to laugh at the world around him, will have readers roaring with joy at his tales of the road, the characters, and the genuinely funny circumstances in which he often found himself.

The result is a book that racing fans will long remember, and often talk about. Argabright's previous collaborations--Still Wide Open with Brad Doty; Hewitt's Law with Jack Hewitt; EARL! with Earl Baltes; Let 'Em All Go with Chris Economaki; Lone Wolf with Doug Wolfgang; Fast Company with Speedy Bill Smith; Let's Go Racing with Rex Robbins; and On Top of the World with Larry Moore--are today regarded as genuine classics, and Life With Luke is sure to join the list as a supremely rewarding reading experience.

Life With Luke will be released for general shipment on November 1. A limited-run Collector's Edition is also available.

Life With Luke - $29.95

Hardbound, 312 pages, 32 pages of color and b/w photographs

Kraig Kinser Garners Top 10s at Jacksonville and Lernerville

Inside Line Promotions - SARVER, Pa. (Oct. 2, 2019) - Kraig Kinser recorded a pair of top-10 results during a trio of World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series races last week.

The action began on Wednesday at Jacksonville Speedway in Jacksonville, Ill., where Kinser qualified 11th quickest before he placed fourth in a heat race. He started 15th in the main event, but had to restart at the tail of the field after being involved in an incident.

"We were a little off at the beginning of the race and we spun," he said. "We went to the back and gutted it out and wound up with a decent finish so we were happy about that. We were moving forward in the second half of the race."

Kinser rallied to a seventh-place result.

He returned to competition on Friday at Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, during the BeFour the Crowns Showdown. Kinser timed in sixth quickest in his group and finished third in a heat race before ending the night 16 th in the A Main.

"I can't complain," he said. "I had a chance at the dash and we locked into the show. I wish we could have been a little better in the feature. We broke into the top 10 early, but we were a little too tight and couldn't do things with the car that I normally could at Eldora. It took most of the race for me to get comfortable and squared away as a driver to do what I needed. It was a quick track and not as slick as it normally gets so it was easier to get ahold of the track."

The weekend concluded on Saturday at Lernerville Speedway, which hosted the Commonwealth Clash. Kinser qualified eighth quickest, scored a third-place result in a heat and advanced a pair of positions in the main event to finish 10th. It marked his 25th top 10 of the season.

"I'm happy with a top 10," he said. "The next deal is to get in those dashes. You have to help yourself by getting in the dashes and starting toward the front."

The team returns to World of Outlaws competition this Friday and Saturday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., during the Champion Racing Oil National Open.

"Hopefully we can carry some momentum into Williams Grove," he said. "We want to start out fairly quick and then only have to make minor adjustments."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 25 - Jacksonville Speedway in Jacksonville, Ill. - Qualifying: 11; Heat race: 4 (3); Feature: 7 (15).

Sept. 27 - Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio - Qualifying: 6; Heat race: 3 (3); Feature: 16 (12).

Sept. 28 - Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa. - Qualifying: 8; Heat race: 3 (2); Feature: 10 (12).

Barney Closes Out 2019 With Big Willamette Win

Eagle Creek, Oregon- The season for Lindsay Barney was a whirlwind of ups and downs in 2019. From motor issues to other disappointments, it seemed it was one thing after another for the Eagle Creek youngster. The JAB Motorsports team traveled to Willamette Speedway on Saturday, September 21st against the Wingless Sprint Series for the final race of their campaign.

Barney timed in second quickest against the sixteen-car field and was the runner-up in the dash. Come main event time the race went non-stop from flag to flag. Lindsay took care of business against the competition to achieve victory.

The triumph was the first time that the JAB Motorsports team had visited victory lane at Willamette Speedway after finishing second so many times before. Barney also won the season finale with the WSS group after picking up the checkers in the season opener in the spring at Madras.

“I feel so happy for me and my team to finally get a win,” said Lindsay, “it’s been a long year with some struggles, but we never gave up and kept pressing on.”

2019 is a wrap for Lindsay Barney and team and their plans for 2020 are still in the air.

Trenca Captures Two Top Fives During Patriot Sprint Tour Night at Fonda Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - FONDA, N.Y. (Oct. 2, 2019) - Joe Trenca earned two top fives on the same night for the first time in his career last Friday at Fonda Speedway, which hosted a make-up race prior to a full race program for the Patriot Sprint Tour.

"The first feature the track was pretty fast and there wasn't much passing," he said. "We could have been a little bit better, but we learned from the first feature to the second feature. I'm glad we were able to make the right adjustments."

The Mucci Motorsports driver placed fifth in the make-up feature to kick off the night. That secured a runner-up result in the Patriot Sprint Tour championship standings.

"Davie Franek and the guys on their team did a great job to win the title," he said. "Our season started off decent and got slow toward the middle, but we really turned up the wick the last month and a half or two months. We were contending for wins and finishing up front."

Trenca continued to run well during the night show on Friday as he won a heat race after starting on the outside of the front row. That gave him a strong starting position and Trenca capitalized by battling for a top five throughout the feature before garnering a fourth-place result. It was his 11th top five of the season.

"We could have won the second feature," he said. "We got to second with four laps to go, but as soon as we passed for second there was a caution. We chose to put a hard tire on before the race and it took three or four laps for the tire to come in. On that caution we went back to third and when we went back green with the tire not being hot it cost us a position. I feel if the caution didn't come out we would have had another one."

Trenca will take this weekend off before tackling a Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints race at Fulton Speedway in Fulton, N.Y., on Oct. 12.

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 27 - Fonda Speedway in Fonda, N.Y. - Heat race: 1 (2); Feature: 4 (8); Make-Up Feature: 5 (5).

Taylor Scores Fourth Win, Leads POWRi Warrior Sprint League Championship Standings

Inside Line Promotions - CALHAN, Colo. (Oct. 2, 2019) - Zac Taylor captured his fourth victory of the season last Saturday at El Paso County Raceway during a POWRi Lucas Oil Warrior Sprint League event. And if not for a broken cam spun, he may have had a shot at another win the same night in Todd Henry's midget.

The victory kept Taylor atop the non-wing sprint car series championship standings with just a pair of races remaining.

"I had some great luck with the draw, getting the pole for the heat in both the sprint and midget and easily winning both," he said. "In the sprint feature, we finally found something that made me totally comfortable. I'm adjusting better to the car. I just need more races. This is my first year racing a non-wing sprint car.

"They gave me the option to go to the tail for a chance at more money, but I wanted to play it safe as we are leading the points with just a couple races to go."

In the midget, Taylor knew something was amiss after the heat race.

"As I was pulling off the track it sputtered and died," he said. "It felt like we ran out of fuel, but that wasn't it. Todd went through all the electronics and it was all good so he was going to change the fuel pump. When he pulled it off he saw the cam spud was stripped. It really sucks because the track was good from top to bottom and we could pass cars with ease."

The week prior Taylor wrapped up a second-place finish in the POWRi Lucas Oil Rocky Mountain Midget Racing Association standings.

"Todd said he will keep an eye out for another midget race or two before we start getting ready for the Chili Bowl," Taylor added.

His next race is Oct. 12 at I-76 Speedway in Fort Morgan, Colo., with the POWRi Lucas Oil Warrior Sprint League.

Ryan Smith Clinches First Win at Lincoln Speedway
Mandee Pauch Relations – October 2, 2019 – Ryan Smith and the Heffner Racing team had yet to find victory lane in their no.72 410 sprint car this season, but all of that changed Saturday night in Abbottstown, PA.

After Friday night’s race at Williams Grove, the team swapped motors and did some Saturday morning maintenance for the evenings event at Lincoln Speedway.

“It all started when someone drew nine for us,” Ryan Smith said. “We started on the outside pole of the heat and ran second in the heat. We just had to run in the top three to make the redraw.”

Smith’s second-place finish placed him into the redraw for the 25-lap main event.

“We were the fourth or fifth guy to draw and we pulled out number one,” noted Smith. “I think it’s the first time all year I’ve started on the pole.”

Feeling eager and confident, Smith rolled off on the inside of the front row.

“We got away from Dietrich in traffic,” he said. “We had a good two second lead until some yellows flew. We had one yellow with seven to go and I knew the 48 was second, and he’s been good. The top in one and two was getting really narrow so we had to use the fence. I couldn’t tip toe it on the restart, so I peeled off. I slid myself so he couldn’t bonzai me. It worked okay besides the fact that he got a good run on me and slid me into three, then I got him back and got on defense mode. He did get back to me coming for the white then I just protected the whole slider situation to make sure that wouldn’t happen.”

In a thrilling last lap action, Smith was able to hold off a hard charging Dietrich by a mere .952 seconds to pick up his first 410 win of the season and first career win at Lincoln Speedway.

“The car was good,” noted Smith. “I was able to get away in traffic. I lost a race there in traffic, so I wasn’t going to lose another one.”

After Smith crossed the scales and turned onto the track towards victory lane, he was greeted with a standing ovation.

“It was a pretty emotional situation,” Smith said. “We’ve been trying all year but hadn’t really had the opportunity. We’ve been a top five car so to finally get the first one out of the way was a big relief.”

After an incident in late June forcing Smith to park the No.72 for five weeks, when Smith strapped back into the wheel in August, he said it was like starting over again.

“Time behind the wheel is key in this field,” he stated. “Especially in Central PA. The more you race, the better you get. I lost the last weekend in June. I missed PA Speedweek, Kings Royal, the heart of the season. It was a very depressing time, however, it was an eye opening experience. I’m grateful for being able to jump back in the car.”

Smith’s concussion may have put the team behind the eight ball, but they were able to rebound and gain back some momentum as they head into the big end of year shows.

“It’s a good momentum builder for the end of the year and the National Open this weekend,” he said. “We all want to win but it’s been avoiding us all year, so it was a good booster for us.”

Smith and the No.72 team are feeling confident as they head into the prestigious National Open weekend at Williams Grove Speedway.

“We’ve been timing really well at the Grove lately,” he added. “Our finishes have been good too. It’s a whole different mindset now that we’ve won. It opens it up for everyone as far as the ease of the mind. So now we can just focus on doing what we have to do. Two nights… it’s all about those two laps. So we just have to keep doing what we’ve been doing.”

Pokorski Motorsports closes book on 2019, set to turn new page in 2020

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) October 1, 2019 – Paul Pokorski and the Pokorski Motorsports team put their 27th season of racing competition in the rearview mirror with an eventful and challenging night of Plymouth Dirt Track Racing and Midwest Sprint Car Association 360 Sprint Car action as part of the Wisconsin Sprint Car Championships to cap the 2019 season at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, Sept. 28.

After the first annual Fuzzy Fassbender Memorial Race at the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam, Wis. fell victim to rain on Friday, Sept. 27, the Pokorski Motorsports team was one of 33 PDTR 360 Sprint Cars to check into The Plymouth Dirt Track for the final night of the 2019 season.

An unlucky draw found Pokorski starting ninth in the first 10-lap PDTR 360 Sprint Car heat race. On the opening lap, Pokorski worked past Don Kiel, who brought out a caution flag on lap 3 when he spun in turn three. Kiel then brought out another caution with an identical spin in turn three on the following lap.

On the restart, Pokorski moved past Tim Haddy into seventh in the running order on lap 5 before getting caught up in an accident triggered on the frontstretch when Shane Wenninger flipped near the flag stand. Pokorski managed to avoid Wenninger’s machine, but he collided with the rapidly slowing car of Blake Wondra, which caused him to flip entering turn one. The extensive damage forced Pokorski to retire from the race as he was scored eighth.

“I did manage to miss the initial wreck, but the hole I was shooting to get through kind of closed up and I jumped somebody's wheel,” Pokorski said. “It has been a while since we've been in a wreck like that. Thank goodness!

The Pokorski Motorsports crew quickly went to work on the badly damaged car and made the necessary repairs just in time to start ninth in the first 12-lap PDTR 360 Sprint Car B main.

“The crew worked really hard to get the car back together,” Pokorski said. “We bent pretty much everything that bolts onto a race car. Luckily, we were reasonably prepared to get it all done and we had a lot of help from not only my own crew, but also Scott Conger and Brandon McMullen's guys and a few people that I'm not even sure where they appeared from. When I initially got out of the car, I was pretty sure that we had some chassis damage and we wouldn't be able to fix it.

“However, the more the crew and I looked at it, the more it seemed possible to get it done and they did,” he said. “It was a great team effort.”

In the first B main, Pokorski maneuvered around rookie Preston Ruh on lap 1 to move into eighth. Pokorski held the position until Tyler Brabant dropped out of the race on lap 8, which moved the West Bend driver up to seventh in the running order.

The 2014 MSA Masters Series champion ended up seventh at the finish to miss out on a transfer spot to the A main and bring the team’s 2019 season to a close.

“Unfortunately, the car wasn't very good for the B main because we didn't have a lot of time to pay attention to actually setting it up correctly,” Pokorski said.

In all, Pokorski recorded four top-five finishes and 12 top-10 A-main showings to go along with two heat race wins and one B-main triumph in 26 events during the 2019 season. Pokorski wound up fifth in the final MSA point standings and ninth in the PDTR 360 Sprint Car point standings.

“I know racing is full of its ups and downs and since 2018 went so well in finishing every lap of every race and avoiding mishaps, I guess I should have expected some struggles in 2019,” Pokorski said. “I am lucky to have such enormous support from friends, family and sponsors to make it all possible.”

Pokorski has revealed that the completion of the 2019 season brings his time chasing the full MSA schedule to an end. In addition, he plans to hang up his driving suit at the conclusion of the 2020 campaign.

“Pokorski Motorsports will turn a new page in 2020,” Pokorski said. “I will run part time, and my son, Alex, will also race part time. I'm excited and nervous about that. At the end of the 2020 season, I'll be retiring from driving, and at this point, I'm not sure what racing plans Alex might have going forward.”

Miller Family Motorsports

PLYMOUTH, WIS.] October 1, 2019; The Miller Family Motorsports teams' ended their respectable seasons this past Saturday evening at the Plymouth Dirt Track (PDTR). Their race at the Dodge County Fairgrounds was lost Friday night due to rain.

Adam started the night off at PDTR with an incident in hot laps which he found himself up-side-down; he would be uninjured but the car would need to be gone through and fixed before heat-race action. Both teams' worked hard to repair Adam's #24m and were able to do so before his heat race took to the track.

Justin and Adam were in the same heat race; Justin started 3rd and Adam started 5th. As the brothers took the green flag for heat race action, Adam would find issues with his drive-line and be unable to finish the race; Justin however, went on to make a slide-job coming into turn one and by the back-stretch it stuck and he was in the lead and would pick up the victory!

Justin pulled into victory lane and upon his return to the pits, both teams were once again back to working on the #24m and getting Adam ready for the first of two B-main events. Justin and his #15m team finished their work on his car and Justin would be set to start the A-main in the 6th spot.

Adam was once again ready to hit the race track where he would start 8th in B-main action. As soon as the green-flagged dropped, Adam was on the move and would not look back! He was able to capture a 2nd place finish in the B-main which would lock him into an 18th starting spot in the last A-main event for the season! The hard work everyone did surely paid off in the exciting B-main.

Justin and Adam strapped in once again and hit the race track for their last A-main event of the year with both the MSA and PDTR. A-main action was under way and after 25 solid laps, this last main event proved to be successful for Justin as he finished 4th. Adam moved up to the 16th spot and after what happened earlier in the night, it was a solid finish to end the season.

Both brothers NEVER missed a MSA or PDTR race all season=100 Percent Participation! Justin would end up 3rd in the MSA point standings and 6th at the Plymouth Dirt Track. Adam would end the season with a great 6th place finish in points with the MSA and finish 11th in points at PDTR.

This season had many ups and downs but both brothers and their teams never gave-up and continued to preserve all season long. They are ready to build upon this season during the off season and a HUGE thank you to all of our MFM Partners for the continued support: Arbor Green Contractors, Bane Nelson, BMG Designs, Brayden Matthews, CJ Salon, Curve In, Cupcake Wonders, Didier & Son, Glacier Transit & Storage, Gravel Pit, Hillside Fabricating, Hopf Farms, KenJay Fielder Excavating, Kristine Hartmann-Pleasant View Realty, Meyer Motors, Oostburg Concrete, R&H Enterprises, Recognition Race Products, Richard Wirtz-Attorney at Law, The Hub Studio Café', Twisted Cuisine, VanDerVart Concrete Products!

Sanders Second at Fall Nationals

PETERSEN MEDIA- Piloting Dale Miller’s No. 4SA machine, a car that pays tribute to Stephen Allard at the Fall Nationals, a race that pays tribute to Stephen Allard, Justin Sanders was able to battle for the win on Saturday night before coming home with a second place finish.

“This is one of those races I really want to win for Dale Miller and his team,” Justin Sanders said. “It is great to run second, and get on the podium, but we really wanted to be one spot better. Still, after getting upside down on Friday, this was a really good way to end our weekend and our season at Silver Dollar Speedway.”

On a wicked fast surface on Friday night, Sanders would get tight in turns three and four and it would result in him getting upside down early in the feature and ending his night abruptly.

Going to work on Saturday, Sanders and the Dale Miller Motorsports team were back in action and got off to a nice start as Sanders timed the Thompson’s Buice-GMC/Thompson’s Jeep-Ram/Dale Miller Septic, Inc. entry in second fastest in his group amongst the 55 cars that packed into the pit area.

Suring to a win in the heat race, Sanders moved into the Dash where his seventh place finish lined him up in the fourth for the 40-lap feature event on a track that was dry and slick with high winds hanging around the Chico area much of the day.

Getting off to a great start, Sanders would use the bottom grove to jump into third during the first lap of the race as he duked it out with more of the region’s top drivers.

Battling with the likes of Bud Kaeding and Sean Becker, Sanders would show patience as the 40-lapper got going. Battling between third and fourth much of the first half of the race, Sanders would move into third solidly at the race’s halfway point.

Chasing after Tim Kaeding and Justyn Cox, Sanders would use a restart on the 23rd lap to move into second and was able to get by Tim Kaeding on a lap 24 restart to take over the race’s top spot.

Out in front, Sanders would have TK and Bud Kaeding breathing down his neck but the Aromas, CA driver was able to keep them at bay initially. Continuing to lead the way, Sanders would be a bit of a sitting duck as rubber started to go down on the speedway.

Tim Kaeding was able to find it first and got by for the lead on the 28th circuit as Sanders slipped to second. As the rubber continued to go down, Sanders would be unable to find his way back by for the race and capped his night with a second place finish.

“We had a good car, and I felt really good all weekend long,’ Sanders said. “Again, I can’t thank Dale and his guys for working so hard this week to get us ready to go.”

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

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts- 20, Wins- 1, Top-5’s-6, Top-10’s-11

ON TAP: Sanders and Dale Miller Motorsports will bring the No. 4SA back at the 26th Annual Trophy Cup in Tulare, CA.

Shaffer Joining Sides Motorsports for Williams Grove National Open

Inside Line Promotions - SARVER, Pa. (Oct. 1, 2019) - Tim Shaffer will join Sides Motorsports this weekend during one of winged sprint car racing's marquee events.

Shaffer and team owner Jason Sides will be the drivers for the team during the Champion Racing Oil National Open on Friday and Saturday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa. Shaffer was victorious at the half-mile oval in July during the most recent World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series two-day event at the track.

"The last time Shaffer was there he won the Friday night race and Saturday he was running good when the motor broke," Sides said. "If we can get both our cars in the main event this Saturday it'd be a good weekend."

Shaffer made his debut with Sides Motorsports last Saturday at Lernerville Speedway, which hosted the Commonwealth Clash. He qualified 12th quickest, advanced from third to second in a heat race and from eighth to seventh in the dash before closing the night with a ninth-place result in the A Main.

"He lives close to there so we went ahead and did it," Sides said. "I knew he was out of a ride and we were going there so it just worked out. For the first night in the car it was pretty good. He was in the dash and ran seventh most of the race until the last restart."

Sides also enjoyed a good outing, overcoming a sub-par qualifying time by winning the Last Chance Showdown and rallying from 21st to 13 th in the main event. The eight positions gained was tied for the most.

"The track seemed like it finally got widened out," he said. "We didn't qualify real well and that put us back of a heat. We won the B Main and started back in the feature. We kept our head in the game and kept going at it around the bottom. It was a lot better late in the race."

Sides also raced with the World of Outlaws last Wednesday at Jacksonville Speedway in Jacksonville, Ill., where he missed transferring into the main event by only one position in both a heat race and the Last Chance Showdown.

"The preferred line was on the hill by the fence and that wasn't me," he said. "I missed it one spot in the heat and the B Main. It didn't feel very good up there. I went back to where I was running and just didn't make it. Some days it will be like that."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 25 - Jacksonville Speedway in Jacksonville, Ill. - Qualifying: 26; Heat race: 6 (7); B Main: 5 (7).

Sept. 28 - Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa. (Jason Sides) - Qualifying: 22; Heat race: 6 (6); B Main: 1 (2); Feature: 13 (21).

Sept. 28 - Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa. (Tim Shaffer) - Qualifying: 12; Heat race: 2 (3); Dash: 7 (8); Feature: 9 (7).

Giovanni Scelzi Picks Up Podium During All Star Finale at Eldora Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - ROSSBURG, Ohio (Oct. 1, 2019) - Giovanni Scelzi recorded his fifth top five of the season during Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions competition to cap a doubleheader at Eldora Speedway last weekend.

Scelzi and car owner Bernie Stuebgen opened the two-day show on Friday by qualifying ninth quickest in their group during the BeFour the Crowns Showdown with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series. Scelzi followed a seventh-place finish in a heat race by winning the Last Chance Showdown to garner a transfer into the back of the main event.

"We didn't qualify very well and with the World of Outlaws format you are buried if you don't qualify well," he said. "It had rained a lot earlier that night so we decided after winning the B Main that we didn't want to risk tearing up our equipment on a fast track that didn't allow much passing. We pulled in a couple of laps into the main event."

Saturday was a much better night at the half-mile oval for Scelzi, who set quick time out of the 42 drivers in All Stars qualifying. He then advanced from fourth to third place in a heat race before maneuvering from fourth to second during a dash.

"We qualified good and made it through our heat race," he said. "Then we picked up two spots in a dash to set ourselves up well for the main event."

Scelzi started the 4-Crown Nationals feature on the inside of the second row.

"The track was really good with a top, bottom and middle," he said. "It was a standard Eldora. I was up to second for a minute and thought we could challenge Cory (Eliason), but (Aaron) Reutzel drove by both of us."

Scelzi ran third throughout most of the race to post his fifth top five of the year with the All Stars and 20th overall.

Sunday's FAST Series event at Kokomo Speedway in Kokomo, Ind., rained out.

Scelzi and Stuebgen will return to action this Friday and Saturday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., during the Champion Racing Oil National Open with the World of Outlaws. Scelzi earned his first career World of Outlaws feature win during the event last year.

"I'm really looking forward to this weekend," he said. "To win a National Open prelim and have good finishes almost every time we've raced there gives me a lot of confidence. That track suits my driving style and whatever package we have in the race car seems to work there. I'm comfortable there, too, which is key."

Wilson Caps All Star Season With Sixth-Place Result at Eldora Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - ROSSBURG, Ohio (Oct. 1, 2019) - Greg Wilson earned his 25th top-10 finish of the year last Saturday during the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions season finale.

Eldora Speedway hosted a weekend doubleheader that Wilson and his Hercules Tires, DNC Hydraulics, Ohio Logistics and Gear Off Road sponsored team participated in. It began on Friday with the BeFour the Crowns Showdown featuring the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series.

"I felt like it was one of those nights when the track was pretty wet to start with and the rain came," he said. "It made the track really hard to pass on, which it should have. I am impressed with Eldora Speedway and the World of Outlaws for getting the race in.

"Honestly our night looked bad on paper, but we turned one of the better laps we've turned there speed-wise. The times were so close in qualifying and we were 16th quick in our group. You're buried the rest of the night at that point. Less than a tenth of a second was eight or nine spots and that was a huge difference for how the rest of your night could play out."

Saturday was a better night for Wilson during the All Star portion of the 4-Crown Nationals. He qualified seventh quickest out of 40-plus drivers and he won a heat race before placing fifth in a dash. Wilson capped the night by advancing a trio of positions to a sixth-place result.

"We rolled back in on Saturday and drew a pretty good heat race," he said. "We were pretty happy all night long. To me the key is to get where you can put whole nights together from qualifying all the way through and I felt we did that. A couple of little changes or me moving on the track like I did late in the race gives you confidence things are going in the right direction. We could have ran third or fourth versus sixth. We were close. That was a good feeling after a rough stretch of races."

Wilson finished sixth in the All Star championship standings.

The team is heading to Arkansas this weekend for the 32nd annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires on Friday and Saturday at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock.

"We've been competitive about every time at this event," he said. "You get exciting about heading to a place where you've been successful. It's a prestigious event to win and it's one that has slipped away from us a couple of times in the past. One of my goals is to try to get one of those trophies."

First up Wilson has a Hercules Tires dealership visit this Thursday at Spencer Tire & Auto Services in Paragould, Ark., from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Tankersley Leads Old School Racing to Sprint Car Bandits Win at 82 Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - PETTY, Texas (Oct. 1, 2019) - Channin Tankersley was victorious in his return to the cockpit of the Old School Racing sprint car last Saturday at 82 Speedway, which hosted a Sprint Car Bandits event.

Tankersley swept the night, winning a heat race from the pole position before maneuvering from fifth to the victory during the A Main.

"It was a really nice track," he said. "It's kind of like a mid-sized track, like a big quarter mile or small 3/8 mile. It was my kind of track. It was rough and elbows up, and we had a pretty good car.

"There were some decent cars there. We got going right out of the box and never dropped off. We had a good, consistent race from Lap 1 to Lap 25. I got to third on the first lap or so. Then I got to second a lap later. The leader was checked out on us. He got into some heavy traffic and I was able to capitalize on that."

Tankersley lapped up to second place. His victory came during his first start since July 20 - also a win.

The team will venture to I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., this Friday and Saturday for the 32nd annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires with the ASCS Mid-South Region.

"I'm looking forward to it," he said. "We've had a strong car there in the past, but have missed the luck part of the event. Hopefully this year we can continue to run strong and have some luck on our side."

SHOWTIME SPEEDWAY ANNOUNCES HUGE FEBRUARY NON-WING EVENT

 September 30, 2019 – Showtime Speedway in Pinellas Park, Florida today announced details for a $5,000 to win non-wing pavement sprint car event at the speedway February 19-20, 2020. Showtime Speedway promoter Robert Yoho announced that the proposed event will be at least 100 laps in length and possibly longer. A final decision hadn’t been made at the time of the announcement which was made by Yoho during a Facebook Live post. It is no secret Yoho has long desired to have a mega pavement sprint car race at his track during Speed Weeks that would draw northern based cars to compete alongside Florida based BG Southern Sprint Car Shootout series competitors. The current plan calls for Littl5 500 rules to govern the event. Under this plan, 360, 410, and V-6 engine cars will be going head-to-head at the ¼ mile slightly banked asphalt oval near Saint Petersburg, Florida. The unsanctioned event will be governed by Showtime Speedway. The late Dave Steele captured the last non-wing sprint car race contested at the track on October 29, 2016 after winning a BG Southern Sprint Car Shootout Series race. There will be an open practice on Wednesday night February 19 with racing activities scheduled for the following night. The event will be available as a pay-per-view through Low Budget TV. The weekend will also include a $15,000 to win Late Model Figure 8 race, $10,000 to win Super Late Model race, and high-paying Legends Car event. The announcement of the event drew immediate interest. Shane Butler, Johnny Gilbertson, and Joe Liguori were the first few to express a desire to compete. Due to the time of the year, and use of Little 500 rules, it is expected to draw 3 or more cars that could include former Little 500 winners: Brain Tyler, Eric Gordon, Kody Swanson, Chris Windom, and Kyle Hamilton among others. Current Little 500 competitors that could compete include: Bobby Santos III, Kyle O’Gara, Tyler Roahrig, as well as Chris Neuenschwander. The event is also expected to draw a handful of Florida drivers who annually compete in the Little 500 including: John Inman, Tommy Nichols, and Mickey Kempgens. Be sure to follow Pavement Pounders for any breaking news on this event.

 

Nolen Racing’s Swanson Wins

Unprecedented Fifth

USAC Silver Crown Drivers’ Title

ROSSBURG, Ohio, Sept. 30 — Thanks to his five poles and five victories in the USAC Silver Crown series this year, all Nolen Racing’s Kody Swanson needed to do to seal up an unprecedented fifth series drivers’ championship was to present his Nolen Racing No. 20 on the starting grid at the season finale Saturday night at the 38th annual Four-Crown Nationals presented by NKT.tv at Eldora Speedway.

The winningest driver in USAC Silver Crown history with 29 victories did that and much more, as he qualified third in Friday’s program and finished fourth in Saturday’s 50-lapper against 27 entries, which was the largest Silver Crown field at Eldora in more than a decade.

Swanson, a native of Kingsburg, Calif. now living in Zionsville, Ind., was in the Whiteland, Ind.-based team’s Maxim Tranter Chevy sponsored in part by KECO Coatings, Goodridge, K & N Filters and Wilwood Brakes.

It was Swanson’s eighth top-five finish in the 10 races held in 2019.

As is his custom, he got off to a great start. He was only 0.091 of a second behind the second-place driver and eventual winner, Brady Bacon, on lap seven of Saturday’s season finale before the first of two yellow flags slowed the pace. It flew with eight laps down when Steve Buckwalter and John Heydenreich were involved in an accident. Luckily neither of the popular Pennsylvanians was hurt.

Yellow-flag laps didn’t count in Saturday’s race. Shortly after the first yellow sixth-place runner Jason McDougal got sideways in Turns 1 and 2. Tyler Courtney, who was seventh at the time, got into him to bring out the second yellow with 11 laps down.

Swanson remained in third place through lap 13. At that point Justin Grant passed him, and Swanson held fourth the rest of the way.

He was 2.696 seconds behind Bacon at the checkered. Polesitter Kevin Thomas Jr. finished second. Grant was third, but Swanson was only 0.405 behind him at the line. He was a whopping 6.246 seconds ahead of the fifth-place finisher, Shane Cottle.

Swanson’s set the fourth-fastest lap of the race on lap three with a time of 19.762 seconds for the half-mile dirt oval.

After a two-and-a-half-hour rain delay on Friday, Swanson’s time in Fatheadz Eyewear Qualifying in the early-morning hours of Saturday was a 16.176, which was only 0.122 of a second off Thomas’s pole-winning time.

Swanson entered the season finale with a 63-point lead over Grant in the driver point standings. He finished the season with a 60-point lead, tallying 638 points to Grant’s 578. David Byrne placed third with 489.

It was much closer in the owner standings. Nolen Racing held the lead in those standings until early September, and finished second in that championship with 613 points to Klatt Enterprises’ 637, which was only a 24-point difference. Hemelgarn Racing was third with 578 points.

The 2019 USAC Silver Crown series originally consisted of 12 races, but two (Terre Haute and Springfield) were rained out. Swanson won half of the year’s events enroute to his title.

His five victories all came on asphalt tracks: Memphis, Toledo, Madison, Salem, and in one of two races held at Lucas Oil Raceway. He led every lap at Toledo, Salem, and in the race he won at Lucas Oil Raceway.

Besides winning five poles (Memphis, Toledo, the May race at Lucas Oil Raceway, Madison and Salem), he set the fastest lap of the race five times (Memphis, Toledo, Williams Grove, Salem and the September race at Lucas Oil Raceway). He also set a new track record at Madison in his amazing season driving for Greenwood, Ind. resident Gene Nolen.

Although the Silver Crown division was its priority, Nolen Racing also fielded two USAC AMSOIL sprint cars at Eldora that were driven by Swanson and Chris Phillips of Plainfield, Ind.

Swanson was in the Nolen Racing Maxim Tranter No. 20N, while Phillips drove the No. 6P DRC Tranter fielded by Chris and Ben Phillips and Nolen Racing. Swanson didn’t make that feature, but Phillips finished 15th.

Phillips also won the ProSource Hard Work Award for having the slowest qualifying time but still transferring into the sprint car feature. He qualified 28th with a time of 18.656 seconds, while Swanson qualified 23rd with a time of 18.111.

Phillips finished sixth in the fourth eight-lap sprint heat after starting seventh, while Swanson placed fifth in heat three after starting on the pole.

Phillips finished sixth in the semi after starting 12th, while Swanson placed tenth after starting seventh in that 12-lap race.

FloRacing.com televised the USAC portion of Saturday’s event live.

Swanson’s post-race quote follows:

“The Four-Crown Silver Crown season finale is always a tough race and a tough format, with qualifying and our feature being on different days. After a rain delay on Friday night I felt we had a really good car and we were able to cut a good lap for a third-place qualifying spot. Obviously I'd have liked to win the pole, but I was fairly happy to be in a good position to race for it on Saturday.

“With our feature running last on Saturday night it became clear that the top was the place to be, with the only moisture left on the track being the cushion packed against the concrete wall. We were able to race closely among the leaders for much of the race, with the top four of us all on the same straightaway with just 10 laps to go, but ultimately we came home in the fourth position.

“I'm very thankful for the hard work and effort that everyone put in, not only for our finale at Eldora, but all season long. Sometimes it can be tough to adapt to a new environment quickly, but I appreciate how this team accepted my family and I, and how well we worked together this season.

“With a series that runs dirt and pavement there is a lot of equipment to prepare and maintain, and a lot of moving parts that present challenges, and I'm grateful for the extra effort that was put in for us to contend for a championship.

“There are so many people that are involved with this Nolen Racing team; each person plays his or her own unique role, all of which are important to the success that we've had together! Thanks again to you all!”



Matt Westfall hard charges twice at The Big E

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

FOREST, Ohio (September 30, 2019) – Better known as the ‘Passing Master,’ Pleasant Hill, Ohio’s Matt Westfall put on quite the display during his 4-Crown Nationals appearance at Eldora Speedway on Saturday, September 28. Westfall, the primary ace for Ray Marshall Motorsports, entered two out of the four divisions showcased during the 38th running of the 4-Crown Nationals, highlighting each of his respective main events with seventh place outcomes. Impressive enough, Westfall’s non-wing sprint and champ car results each stemmed from charges near the tail, thus the aforementioned nickname.

Kicking things off in a hurry, Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports rallied from 16th to finish seventh during the USAC National Sprint Car Series portion of the evening program.

Only to outdo himself, mechanical woes during qualifying forced Westfall to start from the tail during the USAC Silver Crown main event, eventually leading to a seventh place finish from 27th. With all advancement considered, Westfall was crowned the weekend’s overall ‘Passing Master.’

“I have a lot of laps around that place in a lot of different divisions. That certainly helps,” Matt Westfall said, driver of the Ray Marshall Motorsports/Buckeye Machine Fabricators, Inc./Crazy Lady Restaurant and Bar/Hempy Water/DPI Ink/No. 33M non-wing sprint car and the Westfall Marshall Motorsports No. 54 champ car. “I can’t thank Ray Marshall and my dad enough for helping me make a weekend like this possible. The overall goal was to put ourselves in a prime position to win races. Passing the most cars is just as special it its own way.”

In addition to his passing display at Eldora, Westfall kicked-off his weekend with a hard charge from 20th to 12th during action at Gas City Speedway on Thursday, September 26.

Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports will return to non-wing action during the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS) season finale on Saturday, October 5. If things go according to plan, Westfall should leave Atomic Speedway as the 2019 Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series champion.

We’ve been able to put a lot of speed together this year. It all comes down to qualifying. You have to put an entire night together against the Outlaws. If not, you’re buried. Luckily for me, John Trone gives us the equipment necessary to be competitive. I certainly wouldn’t be here without his support.”

Baker went on to finish 25th during the evening’s A-main.

Danny Dietrich caps Lincoln schedule with runner-up performance; National Open next

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (September 30, 2019) – It was another successful weekend for Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing in Central Pennsylvania, and like many of his recent outings, the Gettysburg-native highlighted weekend action with a runner-up finish, this time at the ‘Fabulous’ Lincoln Speedway on Saturday, September 28.

Missing the trip to victory lane by less than a second, Dietrich’s runner-up performance was not from a lack of trying. In fact, the 14-time winner in 2019 started from the outside-pole position and battled for the lead the entire 25-lap distance. Ryan Smith, no longer skunked in the Pigeon Hills, was the Saturday night winner.

Dietrich’s recent weekend ignited with a sixth place run during Williams Grove Speedway’s World of Outlaws Tune-Up on Friday, September 27; a perfect test session for the upcoming National Open.

“I’m sure tired of finishing second,” Danny Dietrich said, driver of the Gary Kauffman Racing/Weikert’s Livestock/Sandoe’s Fruit Market/Pace Performance/Big Cove Whitetail Trophy Hunts/Drop Of Ink Tattoo/Sweeney Cars/Self Made/No. 48 sprint car. “We wanted one more spot at Lincoln, and we were close. The plan is to accomplish that feat twice this weekend.”

Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing will continue their 2019 season with a return to Williams Grove Speedway on Friday and Saturday, October 4 & 5, this time joining the Greatest Show On Dirt for the annual National Open. Carrying a $75,000 potential, Dietrich will battle the Outlaws for a $10,000 share on Friday, followed by an historic $65,000 top prize on Saturday; the largest payday in Williams Grove Speedway history. Dietrich is certainly no stranger to finding success with the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series and owns one victory with the travelers in 2019, that occurring in the Garden State in mid-May.

Brent Marks 11th at Jacksonville, Eldora and Lernerville; Aims for National Open title at The Grove

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

MYERSTOWN, Pa. (September 30, 2019) – If anything is for certain, the ‘Myerstown Missile’ Brent Marks has mastered consistency. Recent results pad the hypothesis, as the Myerstown, Pennsylvania-native has finished 11th during his last three World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series starts, most recently during Commonwealth Clash action at Lernerville Speedway on Saturday, September 28.

In addition, Marks, driver of the Brent Marks Racing/M&M Painting & Construction/BAPS Auto Paint & Supply/Eagle Hotel/No. 19 sprint car, finished 11th during starts at Jacksonville Speedway in Jacksonville, Illinois, on Wednesday, September 25, as well as at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio, on Friday, September 27. Marks highlighted all of his 11th place outcomes with a charge ahead from 14th during his start at The Big E.

“Consistency is important, especially when you compete full-time with the World of Outlaws,” said Brent Marks, a third-year Outlaw to be exact. “Obviously, the goal is to win, but to obtain that level of consistency says a lot about our team.”

Brent Marks and Brent Marks Racing will continue their 2019 season with a return to the Keystone State, this time setting aim on the historic Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg on Friday and Saturday, October 4 & 5. The Grove will host the annual National Open during the coming weekend, all of which highlighted with a 40-lap, $65,000-to-win main event on Saturday.

Friday’s National Open preliminary will go 25 laps in distance awarding a $10,000 top prize.

Tankersley Tames 31-Car ‘Bandits Field at 82; $31,500 Paul Peters Memorial on Deck!

Petty TX (9/30/19), Event Marketing & Publicity by DarinShort.com. It was absolutely awesome to see Channin Tankersley start 5th in the feature event, track down the leader mid-race, make a pass for the lead in lapped traffic and go on to a win by a commanding distance this past Saturday night in the ‘Fall Shootout 25’ 360C.I. Sprint Car Bandits (SCB) feature event at 82 Speedway.

What made this win such a special moment in sprint car racing for this writer is the fact that this was only the second race back for Channin after a long recovery from a scary sprint car crash earlier this season. Channin did the right thing by letting nature take its course and taking plenty of time to recover before strapping back in the driver’s seat.

And what an exclamation point his on-track drive displayed, as the surface was super-fast, sticky and had some extra personality in it caused by a few bumps here and there.

31 quality sprint car teams assembled for the event, from as far away as British Columbia, throughout Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas.

Another driver doing a spectacular job on the track after recovering from an injury in a sprint car race in August was Dalton Stevens. Dalton would claim the $100 FixYourGenerator.com Top Points Driver award, after winning his heat race from his 3rd place starting position. Dalton would take an early commanding lead in the feature slicing and dicing through lapped traffic from lap 5, on. He would keep the lead until just after the half-way point in the feature, when Tankersley was able to sneak by for the lead while Dalton was momentarily trapped by lapped traffic. Stevens would unexpectedly break on the 24th lap ending his great run – which is not reflected in the final results.

16th place starter Michael Day would also have a clean strong run through the field coming home 3rd in the final running order. Dale Wester also drove a solid race finishing in 4th. Dale was 2nd in SCB points going into this event. Claud Estes III came from the B-feature to drive his way to a 9th place finish in the A-feature. D.J. Estes would hook a rut in the B-feature, sending him tumbling off the racing surface into the dirt run off area. D.J. would quickly leap out of the car, much to the approval and roar of the concerned 82 Speedway crowd. That would be the only sprint car team to get upside down during the event.

Yet another driver drove a brilliant race in his first-ever Sprint Car Bandits appearance – and with a 4-barrell carbureted 360C.I. engine under the hood. That driver was Casey Willis from Sperry Oklahoma (north of Tulsa). Casey was able to quickly adapt to the SCB rules package and cruise his way to a very impressive 2nd place finish in the feature race.

BC’s Robbie Price climbed from his 7th place starting spot to 3rd and broke late in the feature event. We certainly appreciate his efforts to compete with the SCB – in his first-ever appearance. It was also great to see ‘The Pilot’ Mark Huddleston make his return to racing after a several year absence caused by his crazy working schedule in the USAF. Mark would make the feature event but dropped out mid-race when his helmet shield broke.

Current SCB points will be posted in the days to come – all while we are building up for the $31,000 Paul Peters Memorial event.Paul Peters was the father of 82 Speedway track owner/promoter Tracy Peters. Paul passed away this July, and his birthday was on October 12th. So, Tracy wanted to put together a ‘Paul Peters’-sized event in his honor, so the Sprint Car Bandits will be back headlining this event, along with the Touring Outlaw Modified Series (TOMS), Factory Stocks and Limited Modifieds.

Just four divisions will be racing on October 12th, with the SCB racing for $2,000 to win and $300 to start, while the TOMS winner will take home a bumped-up purse of $2,000 to win, the Hoyte Dodge Chrysler Jeep of Sherman Texas Factory Stocks will be racing for $2,000 to win and the TRC Team Richardson Chassis Limited Modified winner will collect $1,200 to win.

We would like to take a moment to thank Paul Peters Motor Sports for adding money to the Factory Stock purse – for the first 15 finishers, which has allowed us to up their purse from $1,200 to $2,000 to win. We would also like to thank Texoma Dent Specialists for adding money to the Factory Stock purse. If your business would like to become involved in this great event, please email Darin at dssm93@msn.com – and you’ll get a quick response, and we’ll go from there.

A separate press release and event flyer will be posted with these latest updates within the next few days (the event launched about a month ago).

Here are the finishing results from the 9/28/19 ‘Fall Shootout 25’ Sprint Car Bandits series feature from 82 Speedway in Petty Texas:

Epic Battle Ends With Career Best Eldora Speedway Finish for Tanner Carrick

PETERSEN MEDIA: In what has been a very well talked about Midget race at Eldora Speedway last Saturday night, Tanner Carrick turned in a stout performance that saw him flirt with victory before settling for a career best Eldora Speedway finish which was a hard fought second place.

“That was the most fun I have had in a Midget in some time,” Carrick said with a smile. “I went as hard as I could lap after lap, but we just came up short. It was a fun race, but I wish we could have been on the top step of the podium.”

Lining up on the front row of the feature event, Carric would see his teammate, Logan Seavey jump out to the early lead in turns one and two, but by the time the field made their way into turns three and four, Carrick had worked his way to the point as the stage was set for an epic battle up front.

Lap after lap the tow KKM teammates with duke it out as they threw blows at each other, only to see the other return the favor in the next corner.

Back and forth neither driver would back down as fans on this night were treated to an a ‘gloves off’ battle. While Carrick battled with Seavey for second, Tyler Courtney would work into third and it would soon be a three horse race for the coveted Four-Crown Nationals Midget win.

On the 22nd and 23rd laps, Courtney would take his shots at Carrick, but the youngster from Lincoln, CA had answers both time, just as he answered all of Seavey’s calls.

Coming to the white flag, Courtney would surge back to the top spot over Carrick, and down the back stretch he would use a lapped car as a pick and it would break Carrick’s momentum.

Though Carrick would get by and stay in second, he would not have the speed to get back to Courtney in the final pair of corners as he would hang on to a career best Eldora Speedway finish for himself as he finished second.

“It was a race I would have loved to win, but it just makes me that much more hungry to get back here and try again next year,” Carrick explained. “Thanks to all these Keith Kunz Motorsports guys for giving me a fast car.”

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

2019 BY THE NUMBERS- Starts-44, Wins-1, Top 5’s-10, Top 10’s-24

ON TAP: Carrick and KKM will be at Jacksonville Speedway this Friday and Saturday night.

Hirst Charges Forward on Friday Before Mid-Race Wreck Saturday Night Ends Fall Nationals

PETERSEN MEDIA- Kyle Hirst and C&M Motorsports teamed up for Silver Dollar Speedway’s Fall Nationals over the weekend, and after a hard charge on Friday night that saw KH come from the ‘B’ to finish 14th in the ‘A’, a wreck on the 26th lap took the team out of contention for another Fall Nationals crown.

“I have to thank Cody and Mandi for a great opportunity to come race in honor of Stephen Allard,” Kyle Hrist said. “Friday night we went our early in our time trial group and the track got better and it really set us back but we battled hard and made the best of the situation.”

With 51 cars in the pit area, Hirst would go our first in Group B qualifying and would end up 11th fastest in time trials.

Finding himself in the third row of his heat race on a very locked down racing surface, Hirst would be unable to do much as his seventh place finish put him in the ‘B’ Main.

With the track continuing to stay too good, Hirst would pick up the fourth and final transfer position into the feature event as he would take the green flag from the 24th starting position.

Despite the wicked fast track conditions, Hirst was able to work his way forward. Though it was tough, Hirst was gritty in his efforts as he closed Friday night out by gaining 10 positions and finishing 14th.

Returning to battle on Saturday night on the exact opposite track conditions, Hirst would be the first car out in the first group on this night and time in third quickest in time trials.

Winning the heat race, the Paradise, CA driver would move the Moorefield Construction, Inc./PT Shocks/Swartz Diesel backed entry into the Dash where his fourth place finish put him in the second row to start the 40-lap feature event.

On the slick racing surface, Hirst was very sporty in the race’s early stages. Running in the fifth position, Hirst would soon move into fourth as the track continued to slick off. Finding some rubber following a lap 22 red, Hirst would jump into third as he would battle with Tim Kaeding as they chased after Justin Sanders.

Battling for position in the lead pack, contact on the 26th lap would send Hirst upside down in turns three and four, and it brought his night and weekend to an end.

“I hate that our night ended like that for our team,” Kyle Hirst said. “I had found some rubber and think we had something for the top spot, but luck just wasn’t on our side. Thanks to Cody, Mandi, and MF for everything. It was a blast driving their car, and I wish thinks would have played out differently and we could have celebrated a win.”

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

ON TAP: The C&M Motorsports team will return to action on October 12th in Hanford, CA for the Cotton Classic.

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-30, Wins-1, Top 5’s-13, Top 10’s-22.

PETERSEN MEDIA- With the Fall Nationals bringing the close to the 2019 season at Silver Dollar Speedway, Andy Forsberg capped his year at the facility with a fourth place finish on Friday night before charging to a ninth place finish during Saturday’s finale.

“Friday night was pretty ho hum,” Forsberg said. “It was juiced up and fast all night, but we put ourselves in a good place all night. Saturday our engine wasn’t running early in the feature, we changed a mag box under yellow and came back up to ninth from the back.”

Timing the Econo Lube-n-Tune and Brakes/Geico Local Office/PitStopUSA backed No. x1 machine in second fastest in qualifying time trials, Forsberg would run second in his heat race and make his way into the Dash.

Finishing third in the Dash on a hooked up racing surface, Forsberg lined up in the second row of the 30-lap Fall Nationals opening night feature event. On the locked down surface, not much was happening through the field as cars were all turning in extremely fast laps.

Keeping the Friends and Family owned machine inside the Top-5, Forsberg would cap the opening night with a fourth place finish.

Back in action on a windy Saturday that would lead the surface to do the opposite as Friday and go dry and slick, Forsberg would go out nearly last of the 55 cars to check in on this night.

With the groups again split, Forsberg would get all he could out of the slick surface and it would result in a second quick qualifying effort that put him on the front row of his heat race.

Picking up the win over Sean Becker, Forsberg would move into the Dash where an eighth place finish put him in the fourth row of the 40-lap feature event. When the race came to life, Forsberg would notice something going sour under the hood of his car.

Causing a yellow on the seventh lap, the F&F Racing team would change a mag box in the work area and get the Auburn, CA driver back out on the speedway. From the back of the pack Forsberg came to life and carved his way forward on the slick surface amidst an action packed feature event.

Getting back into the Top-10, Forsberg would work into 9th as the track started to take rubber. The last handful of laps would see the field in the rubber, as Forsberg would hang on to cap his night with a Top-10 by way of a ninth place finish.

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

ON TAP: F&F Racing and are idle until October 12th when the Sprint Car Challenge Tour invades Hanford, CA for the Cotton Classic.

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-30, Wins-8, Top 5’s-17, Top 10’s-22.

Croft Records Third and Seventh Place Finishes at Fall Nationals

PETERSEN MEDIA- Paying homage to the late Stephen Allard over the weekend in Chico, CA during the Fall Nationals, Willie Croft had a strong weekend that saw him land on the podium Friday night before a hard charge effort Saturday culminated with a seventh place finish.

“Friday night we were just in the right spot, and with the way the track was we ended up on the podium,” Croft said. “Saturday night, we got behind early but the guys worked hard and we raced really well all night.”

Timing the Holey Smokes BBQ/ButlerBuilt/Brown and Miller backed No. 29 entry in third fastest during in time trial flight to get Friday night started, Croft would run second in his heat race and garner a position into the all-important Dash.

Picking up a fifth place finish in the Dash, Croft rolled off the starting grid from the inside of the third row on a surface that was still wet and very fast. Keeping his machine in the Top-5, Croft would take advantage of a couple of guys falling out of the race and picking up a few spots.

With a fast car underneath him, he was able to keep the lead duo of Justyn Cox and Shane Golobic in his sights, but couldn’t make up any ground on them as he closed Friday night out with a third place finish.

Back in action for the Fall Nationals; Tribute to SA finale, Croft would time in 10th quickest in his time trial group, which put him in the third row of his heat race.

Able to hang on to the fifth and final transfer position into the 40-lap feature event, Croft would find himself back in the 19th starting position.

On a very slick surface, Croft had a good car underneath him and was able to work his way forward during a very wild feature event. While he did pick up a few “give me’s’, Croft was able to slice and dice his way around the quarter mile bullring.

An open red on the 22nd lap allowed Croft’s crew to inspect his tires and relay the condition to him. With them in good shape, they gave Croft the all clear to continue to push forward. Fighting his way up into fifth at one point, an untimely caution would negate his pass.

With rubber down in the closing laps, Croft would hang on to finish in the seventh position.

“Pretty good weekend for our race team, and hopefully we can keep running well during this stretch of big races out here,” Croft said. “Big thanks to all of our supporters and my guys for what they continue to do for this team.”

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

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Races-47, Wins-0, Top 5’s-10, Top 10’s-22.

ON TAP: Willie Croft gets right back to it this Saturday night as the King of the West Series returns to action at Kern County Raceway Park.

Cox Grabs Another Friday Night Win As He Takes Home Fall Nationals Opener

PETERSEN MEDIA: One week removed from winning the opener at the Nor*Cal Posse Shootout with Moxie Motorsports, Justyn Cox was in action with Rutz Racing this past Friday and Saturday in Chico, CA and picked up another exciting Friday night win that saw him past Shane Golobic coming to the checkered flag.

“Man, to finally win at Chico after 10 years of trying and to beat Shane Golobic who is the best in California right now is pretty cool,” a jubilant Justyn Cox said in victory lane. “10 years ago today (Friday) Travis Rutz was involved in a life changing accident so win on a really hard day for the family, and to give them their first win in California is just all so surreal and so special.”

Teaming back up with Doug Rutz after picking up some wins in Canada and in the Northwest over the summer, Cox came out very strong as he kicked Friday night off by timing in third quickest in his qualifying group.

Picking up the heat race win, Cox moved into the Dash where he would run second to Stephen Ingraham and find himself on the front row of the feature event on a hooked up a fast Silver Dollar Speedway surface.

With Ingraham getting the early jump, Cox flanked him early and actually closed in and made the battle for the lead interesting until the red flag flew on the fifth lap.

Back in action, Cox would run in second but would have his hands full with Golobic who battled for position as the leaders got into traffic. On the 11th lap, Golobic would drop Cox back to third, but a lap 14 miscue by Ingraham up front put the Clarksburg, CA driver back in second.

Stalking Golobic on the fast surface, things would pick up with just three laps to go. Racing in traffic, Cox would go high on the 27th lap to take the lead only to see Golobic return the favor a lap later. As Golobic took the white flag as the lead, the duo came up on a slower car and it would make for an epic finish.

Going into the final pair of corners, Cox would go high and hammer the throttle and beat Golobic to the flag to pick up the win, marking his first career win at the famed speedway.

Back in action on Saturday night for the final race of the year at Silver Dollar Speedway, Cox continued to show speed in the No. 8R machine. Earning quick time honors in his group, Cox would pick up a second place finish in his heat race before finishing sixth in the Dash.

A frigid and windy night in Chico, CA would see Friday’s hooked up a wet surface turn into a very dry and slick surface on Saturday night that would ultimately take rubber.

From his third row starting position, Cox would slice and dive his way forward and again find himself up front battling in a pack of cars for the races top spot. Enduring stoppages through the course of the night, a late restart would see Cox get tight on the cushion and he would fall back to fifth as the rubber started to go down, where he would close his weekend out.

“To have a chance at the sweep its pretty cool,” Cox said. “Doug and his guys gave me a great car both nights and we were fast on both surfaces. I made a little mistake late Saturday that cost us a chance at winning the finale, but that’s racing. It was a fun weekend and I can’t thank the Rutz family for the opportunity.”

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

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Races-45, Wins-5, Top 5’s-19, Top 10’s-25

ON TAP: Justyn Cox returns to the seat of the Rutz Racing No. 8r on Saturday night at Petaluma Speedway.

 

 

Madsen 4th at Commonwealth Clash

Highlights from Saturday night can be seen here- https://youtu.be/MDuii_sIlQs

PETERSEN MEDIA- Quickly putting a tumultuous Friday night at Eldora Speedway behind them, Ian Madsen and KCP Racing put together a very strong Saturday night at Lernerville Speedway that saw them take home a fourth place finish at the Commonwealth Clash.

“Friday night was a struggle, but my guys put it behind us and focused on Saturday and we had a really good night which was a great way to bounce back,” Ian Madsen said.

Saturday night at Lernerville Speedway, Madsen opened the night up by timing the Logan Contractors Supply, Inc./Aspen Aire/Royal Flooring backed No. 18 entry in sixth fastest in qualifying time trials.

Picking up the win during heat race action, Madsen moved into the Dash where a fourth place finish put him in the second row to kick off the 35-lap feature event.

When the race came to life, Madsen would jump into the third position as he battled with Shane Stewart and chased after the lead duo of Brad Sweet and Donny Schatz.

Slipping back to fifth on an early restart, Madsen would soon get back by David Gravel to take over the fourth spot, as it would turn into a three car battle for third as they closed in on Stewart.

As the field shuffled out, Madsen would settle into fourth until Sheldon Haudenschild would get by him late.

Still running in the Top-5, Madsen would close in on Haudenschild for the fourth position late in the race. A couple laps of hard fought racing would see Madsen get the position as he capped the night off with a fourth place finish.

“Really proud of the guys for staying focused and really giving us a great car all night on Saturday,” Madsen said. “Aside from Eldora we have been really consistent in the Top-5 and hopefully we can pick up a win or two in the next month before our season ends.”

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

Rico Abreu rallies for top-ten against All Stars during 4-Crown Nationals

Dates: Friday and Saturday, September 27th & 28th Event: 4-Crown Nationals Series: World of Outlaws and All Star Circuit of Champions Track: Eldora Speedway (Rossburg, Ohio) Rico Abreu A-Main Finishes (Start): Friday (World of Outlaws): 15th (22nd) Saturday (All Stars): 9th (14th)

ST. HELENA, California (September 30, 2019) - After a month of action on the West Coast, St. Helena, California’s Rico Abreu made his return to the eastern time zone during the recent weekend, this time joining the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series, as well as the All Star Circuit of Champions, during the two-day 4-Crown Nationals at Eldora Speedway on Friday and Saturday, September 27 & 28.

Certainly a highlight on his annual racing calendar, Rico Abreu transformed his pair of 4-Crown starts into one top-ten finish, highlighting both days with a ninth place outing against Tony Stewart’s All Stars on Saturday, September 28. Bumping his top-ten total to 47 on the season, Abreu’s charge to ninth commenced from the outside of row seven, eventually advancing five positions in 25 circuits.

Although missing the top-ten against the World of Outlaws during the 4-Crown opener on Friday, the end-result was still positive, ending action with a rally from 22nd to 15th.

“Man, I love Eldora Speedway,” Rico Abreu explained, driver of the Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian/Abreu Vineyards/Curb Records/Golden State Restaurant Group/Lucas Oil Products/Southern Pacific Farms/Priority Aviation/Self Made Racing/Dancer Logistics/No. 24 sprint car. “It’s a great place to race and we’ve had a lot of positive results there. I wish we had more opportunities to go there, to be honest.”

Tentatively, Rico Abreu and Rico Abreu Racing will return to action on Friday and Saturday, October 4 & 5, with a two-day visit to Jacksonville Speedway in Jacksonville, Illinois. The Midwest Open Wheel Association (MOWA) will be on hand to sanction both days of competition.

Abreu, who owns six wins in 2019, including a recent triumph in Placerville, California, is a former MOWA winner at Jacksonville Speedway.

2019 World of Outlaws Championship Standings: 2nd - 8858 points (40 points behind Brad Sweet)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (September 30, 2019) - Donny Schatz’ recent three-race stretch was packed with frustration, ultimately forced to settle with a 17th place finish during Eldora Speedway’s 4-Crown Nationals opener on Friday, September 27, followed by a tough-to-swallow ‘DNF’ result due to mechanical woes at Lernerville Speedway on Saturday, September 28. Unfortunately, the pair of unexpected outcomes cost the Fargo, North Dakota-native the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series championship points lead, now 40 markers behind the Kasey Kahne Racing entry driven by Brad Sweet.

Despite back-to-back nights of hardship, the ten-time and defending World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion did find some light during action at Jacksonville Speedway in Jacksonville, Illinois, on Wednesday, September 25. Although forced to start 17th on the grid as the result of a fifth place finish during heat race action, Schatz did not fret, but instead put together an impressive charge to finish fourth, solid enough to also assure the evening’s Hard Charger Award for advancing the most feature positions.

Donny Schatz’ Eldora Speedway result on Friday was the product of row 12. The pilot of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Toco Warranty/Ford Performance/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/Absolute Automation & Security/No. 15 sprint car was forced to start deep after failing to transfer through his respective heat race, but a fourth place finish during the evening’s Last Chance Showdown allowed the ten-time champ to start 24th.

“We are going to have to find a way to bounce back, and what better time to do so than during Williams Grove Speedway’s National Open,” Donny Schatz said, a former multi-time winner of the prestigious event that will award $65,000 in 2019. “We’ve had a lot of success at Williams Grove Speedway. Hopefully we can continue that this weekend.”

Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart Racing will continue their 2019 campaign with Williams Grove Speedway’s National Open on Friday and Saturday, October 4 & 5. Saturday’s 40-lap finale will award a monster $65,000 top prize - the largest top prize in Williams Grove Speedway history.

Brian Brown Scores Top Five During Champion Racing Oil National Open Tune-Up Race

Inside Line Promotions - SARVER, Pa. (Sept. 30, 2019) - Brian Brown highlighted his weekend by earning his second top five and fourth top 10 in as many starts at Williams Grove Speedway this season during a tune-up last Friday for the Champion Racing Oil National Open.

Sept. 27 - Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa. - Qualifying: 5; Heat race: 2 (2); Dash: 4 (4); Feature: 4 (4).

"We were pretty good and it was really an uneventful night," Brown said. "We qualified well and were good in the heat running second to Lance (Dewease). We ran fourth in the dash. We got a pretty good start on the initial start of the feature and got to third, but a red came out. Then we ran fourth the whole race. Overall I feel like I'm getting more comfortable and learning more tricks that can help you there. Our idea of coming out to spend more time and run more laps was to prepare for big events. Hopefully our trial and error will pay dividends at the National Open."

Sept. 28 - Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa. - Qualifying: 4; Heat race: 1 (1); Dash: 6 (3); Feature: 14 (6).

"We weren't any good in hot laps, but Chad made some changes to the car and woke it up," Brown said. "We were good in qualifying and we were able to win the heat. From that point on we weren't that good. We went backwards a little in the dash. We'd only been there twice and we felt like sooner or later it'd get slick. If anything it went heavier. We went the wrong way with changes for the main event. We were way, way too tight. Sometimes experience wins and we don't have the experience there and we guessed wrong."

UP NEXT - Friday and Saturday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., for the Champion Racing Oil National Open with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series

"We've been pretty good there," Brown said. "Every lap I make there I feel more comfortable. That should pay dividends this weekend. Our Charlie Garrett engines are really good. Qualifying well will set up your night. Hopefully we can do our job and set ourselves up early. There's a lot of money on the line, but a lot of things have to fall in order before you can race for the money."

Kerry Madsen Posts Top Five at Eldora as Williams Grove National Open Nears

Inside Line Promotions - SARVER, Pa. (Sept. 30, 2019) - Kerry Madsen produced his fourth top five of the season with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series last Friday during the BeFour the Crowns Showdown hosted by Eldora Speedway.

The Big Game Motorsports driver kicked off the marquee event at the oval near Rossburg, Ohio, by qualifying second quickest in his group following a lengthy rain delay.

"It was crazy because the Outlaws have a split draw and somehow every bad ass was in the first group (with us)," he said. "It was insane. We qualified well and won the heat. We drew the five in the dash and we lost a spot."

The KI Crossbows backed driver lined up on the outside of the third row for the main event.

"I got a good start in the A Main and then I ended up passing Carson (Macedo) a bit later," he said. "I was really good at the end, but ran out of time.

"(The rain early in the night) made the track a lot heavier, but you knew they were going to get it in regardless. You had to wait and be patient. The track had a really good cushion. It was a fun track in the A Main."

The weekend concluded on Saturday at Lernerville Speedway during the Commonwealth Clash. Rain again wreaked havoc early at the event. Madsen qualified 17th quickest overall before he finished where he lined up - fifth - in a heat race.

"I messed up both laps off turn two so our qualifying time was a little off," he said. "It rained and we were in the first heat so it was really sloppy. In the feature we started 17th and got to 12 th. We should have gotten further up, but we weren't good enough. We're not transitioning when you need grip as the track slows down, but we're working on it."

Madsen and the team will venture to Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., this Friday and Saturday for the Champion Racing Oil National Open with the World of Outlaws.

"Williams Grove is a tough track," he said. "It's extremely technical. We've ran good the last two times we were there so we found some confidence there."

Madsen has finishes of third and sixth, respectively, during a pair of starts at Williams Grove Speedway this season.

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 27 - Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio - Qualifying: 2; Heat race: 1 (1); Dash: 6 (5); Feature: 4 (6).

Sept. 28 - Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa. - Qualifying: 17; Heat race: 5 (5); Feature: 12 (17).

Starks Excited Entering National Open This Weekend at Williams Grove

Inside Line Promotions - PUYALLUP, Wash. (Sept. 30, 2019) - Trey Starks returns to Central Pennsylvania this weekend to tackle the Champion Racing Oil National Open.

The Gobrecht Motorsports driver will invade Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg on Friday and Saturday for the marquee World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series event.

"We've had our fair share of issues during the National Open, but nonetheless I think it's a good race," he said. "It suits our style. We tend to qualify well there and that sets up most of your night. If all the stars align I think we'll have a good weekend."

Starks was on his way to his career-best National Open last year. He scored a career-best National Open preliminary night result of sixth before mechanical woes ended the night early during the finale.

"If you put yourself ahead to start the night it's a lot easier to have a good night," he said. "We're coming off a weekend off and the previous weekend didn't go very well. I'd like to see us bounce back and be where we think they should be. I do think we have a chance to run up front if everything goes well. No matter what is going on you can't count us out."

Starks proved that last month when he captured his first career win at the famed Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, during a preliminary night for the Knoxville Nationals.

"It gives me confidence that no matter what happens if we do what we're supposed to and things fall our way we can be up front," he said.

Starks has scored a feature victory at Williams Grove Speedway during each of the last two years.

Hill Eager to Return to Action This Weekend at Short Track Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - SIX NATIONS, Ontario, Canada (Sept. 30, 2019) - Following a rare off-weekend on her racing schedule, Alex Hill is looking forward to returning to the track this weekend.

Heightening her excitement will be competition in one of the major events on her schedule - the 32nd annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires. I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., hosts the ASCS Mid-South Region event this Friday and Saturday.

"I'm excited to go back to Short Track Nationals," she said. "It's a great event."

Following a career-best event result last year, Hill is looking to improve her finish by at least one position this Saturday night.

"Our main goal is usually to make the A Main, especially at a big race like this," she said. "We came really close last year and missed it by just one spot. I think we can make it this year if we can avoid bad luck."

While Hill doesn't consider I-30 Speedway to be her best track, she hopes that her overall improvement this season will continue this weekend.

"It's not really my type of track," she said. "But I've been able to get around there better as I've gained more experience there. We've been better at most tracks this year than in previous years and we hope that will be the case again this weekend."

Kaleb Johnson Shows Improvement While Battling Adversity in 2019

Inside Line Promotions - SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Sept. 30, 2019) - A challenging season didn't keep Kaleb Johnson from showing improvement and establishing new standards in his racing career.

"Our season didn't go as well as we hoped," said Johnson, who battled mechanical problems throughout the year in both his 305ci and 360ci sprint cars. "But that stuff happens. We had some good moments along with a few bad ones. But bad moments only make our team stronger. I'm proud of how we were able to overcome a lot of adversity. It makes me look forward to next year."

Highlighting Johnson's season was a top-five finish at the largest and most prestigious 305 sprint race of the year - the IMCA RaceSaver Nationals hosted by Eagle Raceway in Eagle, Neb.

"Finishing fourth at the 305 Nationals was definitely one of the best racing moments of the year for us," Johnson said in reference to the four-day event that drew around 100 competitors.

While the number of 360 races Johnson planned to compete in was drastically reduced because of engine woes, he still showed marked improvement in most of the races he was able to compete in without mechanical problems.

"We were proud to make our A Main on our preliminary night at the Knoxville 360 Nationals," he said. "That was particularly satisfying because of our lack of experience there and that we didn't plan to race there until we were able to put something together just a couple of days before."

Johnson also showed speed in many of the Midwest Power Series races that he was able to compete in without incident.

"We were more competitive in most of our 360 races," he said. "We had a couple of top fives against some strong competition."

A scheduled doubleheader last weekend at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa, was canceled because of rain, fittingly capping Johnson's racing season. Now he's shifted gears and is excited to move forward with his sights on 2020.

"We're not ready to announce anything about next year yet," he said. "We hope to give updates regarding next season in the coming months.

"It was cool to see our team grow and not give up. Probably 80-to-90 percent of our issues were beyond our control, but I think they made us better. It makes me feel good looking forward to next after what we've been through this year."

GREAT WEATHER (dry, 85) SATURDAY SEPT. 28 (hot laps 7pm) featuring the exciting 360C.I. Sprint Car Bandits​ series, PLUS ALL '82 divisions will be racing for excellent event purses, AND the Texas Wing Modified Series will round out the huge event!

Tonight's September 28th event is presented in part by Carpet World​, Smiley's Racing Products - The Official Page​, Fix & Feed/Bonham Hardware, Hicks Muffler and Tire​, David's Paint & Body and Paris Alternator & Starter Service​!

(Click www.SprintCarBandits.com for full-size flyer.)

Petty, TX (9/28/19) Event Marketing & Publicity by DarinShort.com. Next up for the 360 C.I. Sprint Car Bandits® series is a return to the very popular and sprawling (in every respect) ¼ mile of 82 Speedway, located about 15 minutes west of Paris, directly on Hwy 82 in Petty Texas. The event will pay $2,000 to win and down to $300/start with the running of the “Fall Shootout 25” presented by www.FixYourGenerator.com *TODAY* Saturday September 28th at 7pm. All six divisions of 82 Speedway will be in competition as well, paying very solid purse structures (see below). Fans can expect a full field of many of the region's best dirt track racers to be on hand. PLUS the Texas Wing Modified Association will host a complete event - which will include several sprint car drivers pulling double duty...so this is one event you don't want to miss!

A :30 second look ahead: 82 Speedway track owner, Tracy Peters, had recently suffered the loss of his father, Paul “Patsy” Peters, and Paul’s birthday was on October 12th. 82 Speedway already had a race scheduled for that night, except now it’s going to become the massive $31,000 Paul Peters Memorial event; featuring $2,000 to win each in the Sprint Car Bandits and Touring Outlaw Modified divisions, plus $2,000 to win in the Factory Stocks & $1,200 to win in the Limited Modified division! Paul was known to have a big personality and an even bigger presence, so it’s only fitting to have an event of this magnitude in his honor. Paul was heavily involved throughout the years with several drivers in several divisions, and this huge event will help to celebrate the memory of his life in racing. If you are an individual or business that would like to help build this event even further, please email Darin at dssm93@msn.com for details. A complete event flyer and press release will be posted in the days to come.

Back to *TONIGHT* September 28th: If you’ve yet to visit 82 Speedway, it is much closer to DFW than a lot of people think and is NOT the old Paris Speedway southeast of Paris. As a point of reference, including a quick fuel stop, you can get from the intersection of Bass Pro Shops/I-30/Bush in Garland to 82 Speedway in 80 minutes.

TRACK DIRECTIONS: Track is located about 1 mile east of Petty Texas right on Hwy 82, which is about 20 minutes east of Bonham and 15 minutes west of Paris. 16369 US Hwy 82 Petty, TX 75470. For track and details, go to www.82speedway.com or www.Facebook.com/82Speedway .

I like to call 82 Speedway ‘The Land of the XL.’ Translated, everything is XL size, such as the 60’ racing surface that is .26 miles on the pole (1/4 mile) then in the groove right at 1/3 mile. There are no walls around the entire track – with lots of runoff space wherever you’re racing, which leads to less tore up equipment. Over-sized grandstands that each have 0% obstructed viewing from whatever spot you choose to view from. Huge spectator and pit parking areas will greet everyone on their arrival. Track owners, Shelley and Tracy Peters who are some of the nicest people you’ll ever come across, and they have been reinvesting in the permanent structure of the facility since they purchased it last year.

Bottom line, if you haven’t been there, here’s your chance on Saturday, September 28th! A full line-up of 82 Speedway racing divisions will be joining the 360C.I. sprint cars, including open comp Modifieds racing for $1,000 to win, Texas Stocks, Limited Modifieds, Factory Stocks (all racing for $500/win); along with Eco Mods & Stocks (each $300/win). Come early for Fan Fest at 6:30pm, with the first green flag set for around 7:30pm (track packing and hot laps are at 7pm). Adult G.A. tickets (sold at gate on race day only) are $17, with kids 6-11 $5. Pit passes are $35, with ages 5 and under $15. Seniors/Military are $15. Click www.82Speedway.com for more details, and interact on Facebook @82Speedway

JOIN US EARLY for SCB FAN FEST! It's free and you get to meet the drivers and the teams, plus purchase team apparel, get selfies, get your apparel autographed; etc.!

Here’s the purse structure for the SCB “Fall Shootout 25” presented by www.FixYourGenerator.com feature: $2,000 – 1,000 – 600 – 500 – 400 – 390 – 380 – 370 – 360 – 350 – 340 – 330 – 320 – 310 – 300…to start. All non-qualifiers or non-starters will each receive $100. There is no entry fee, no series membership fee and a $20 nightly draw fee.

The www.KoolTrikes.com SCB heat races will set the feature race lineup through passing points – straight up, with no inverting.

Here's the purse structure & details for Saturday September 28th at 82 Speedway. Transponders & RaceCeivers required in all divisions (track rental is available):

If a driver chooses to compete in more than one division on the same night, the driver must purchase an additional pit pass per division entered. On regularly scheduled events, if 11 or fewer cars in a division are signed in, the posted purse structure for that division on that night will start at 2nd place pay and continue down from that point on. If the races rain out before the completion of the heat races, hold on to your ticket stub, as it will be valid for the next scheduled race of same ticket price value (in other words, if tickets that night were $15, the next event you will have a $15 credit when you redeem your ticket stub from the previous event). The exact same procedure will be in effect regarding pit passes. If the races rain out after the heat races, the event is considered complete, and any remaining races will not be rescheduled and all drivers will receive start money for their scheduled division that night (for any of the feature events that rained out). There will be no grandstand tickets valid for a future date if races are rained out after the completion of heat races.

Note to drivers: all race teams must run Westhold transponders and RaceCeivers. Track rental is available.

Covington Preparing for STN after Rallying for 6th Place Finish at Lucas Oil

CG Motorsports– Glenpool, Ok. (Sept 27th, 2019) Matt Covington and team rallied back from a rough Thursday and Friday night to earn a 6th place finish in the finale A main at Lucas Oil Speedway for the Jesse Hockett Memorial.

The weekend started off on the wrong side of the draw sheet for Covington. On Thursday, the draw started him in the back of the heat where he was collected up in an accident trying to avoid a crossed-up race car. The B feature proved to be just as unfavorable with a deep starting position and a torn-up racecar. Matt was pinched into the wall trying to work the high side, ending his night with considerable damage to his Triple X/Shark Engines mount. Due to the time constraints and dismal state of the car, the team chose to use a provisional and attempted to start the feature, but had to pull off at the start.

Friday night’s action started out with an almost equally unfortunate pill draw. The heat effort placed him in the back of a qualifier where an unavoidable car spun out in front of him, causing a flat right rear and rear end damage. That set him up towards the back of the B and too far from a transfer, only being able to make it up to 7th by the race’s end. Once again, he took a provisional for the A main and decided to preserve his car by pulling off.

After an exhausting first two nights that wielded no results, Covington found himself mid-pack in a last chance qualifier on Saturday. Only being able to gain two spots placed him 5th in the first B feature. Finally, able to demonstrate the speed the car had all weekend, Matt pulled off the win. With an opportunity in front of him, Matt was determined to make the best of it. At the drop of the A feature’s green he went to work, clawing from 17th all the way to 6th to salvage the weekend.

“I’m still recovering from last weekend,” stated Covington. “Between the mental frustration, crashing multiple times, and late nights trying to repair the car, it was probably one of the most stressful race weekends I’ve ever had. So, Saturday felt like a win to me because, at the start of it, I wasn’t sure if we were even going to be able to make the A main. I knew we had a fast car, but starting in the back all weekend just seemed to put us in the wrong place at the wrong time a lot. I’m just glad we could end it with a good finish. And I appreciate Mike and the rest of the team for all their effort this weekend. Despite being tired, they continued to work hard and not give up when it seemed like the odds were against us all weekend. Without them, we wouldn’t have had a shot at a good run on Saturday. We are going to stay home this weekend and get everything back together before Short-Track so we can do our best.”

Schuett Scores 17th-Place Finish During World of Outlaws Debut

Inside Line Promotions - JACKSONVILLE, Ill. (Sept. 27, 2019) - Kyle Schuett advanced to a top-20 finish during his debut with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series Wednesday night at Jacksonville Speedway.

"It was a good night," he said. "We accomplished our goal of making the feature. Our new motor ran well and the car is in one piece. I think we could've done a bit better, but we were happy with our night overall."

A primary concern for Schuett going into the evening was regarding how he would fare during the qualifying session, which set the tone for the rest of the evening. He responded by timing in 23rd quickest, a respectable time among the 36-car field for a driver with little qualifying experience.

"I know I gave up at least three-tenths in my qualifying lap," said Schuett, who had only previously qualified a sprint car a handful of times. "I was too tight in turns three and four and I lifted the front wheels going down the straightaway. But it was still a decent lap for us."

Schuett started sixth and finished seventh in his heat race.

"I ran sixth most of the race, but just overdrove the car because I was trying so hard to get to fifth for the final transfer spot," he said. "That was when Mason Daniel got by me. But I still didn't think it was too bad for my first race with the Outlaws."

Schuett rolled off third in the Last Chance Qualifier, which took the top four to the A Main.

"We made some good changes to the car and ran third the entire race that went non-stop," he said. "That was pretty cool to make the feature in our first race with the Outlaws."

Schuett took the green flag for the night's main event from the 23 rd position.

"We were able to pass a few cars before getting lapped," he said. "Unfortunately, we had just gotten lapped when the caution came out, so it's really hard to move forward when that happens.

"With about six or seven laps to go the leaders were lapping me and I didn't want to interfere with them so I pulled in. We had accomplished our primary goal of making the feature so we were satisfied with our night."

Schuett will take this weekend off before returning to Jacksonville Speedway for a doubleheader with the Built Ford Tough MOWA Sprint Car Series on Oct. 4-5.

"We're looking forward to returning to Jacksonville next weekend," he said. "I definitely learned some things as a driver racing with the Outlaws and I'm anxious to get back there."

New Keith Kunz Motorsports Website

By: Steve Elliott - September 26, 2019

Racer Template is happy to officially announce the launch of the new Keith Kunz Motorsports website at https://keithkunzmotorsports.com.

Keith Kunz Motorsports is arguably the strongest dirt track midget car racing team in the world. Based out of Columbus, Indiana, KKM fields up to as many as 10 cars at times and competes full time in both the USAC National Midget Car Series and the POWRi National Midget Car Series. KKM has multiple USAC National Midget Championships to their credit, a National Powri Midget Championship (in the first year they ran for the championship), 9 Chili Bowl Championships, and countless other wins. Though they are most well known for their Midget Car success, KKM has a strong history of success in USAC Sprint Cars as well. Back when they ran both USAC National Midgets and USAC National Sprints full time, it was very common to see them leading points in both series at the same time.

Through their driver development program, KKM has also helped guide the careers of some of the top names in motorsports today. Kyle Larson, Christopher Bell, Rico Abreu, and many others have all spent time behind the wheel of a Keith Kunz Motorsports race car. Drivers move to Indiana from all around the country to drive for Keith and be a part of this program. Some drivers currently benefiting from their full-time program are Logan Seavey, Tucker Klaasmeyer, Jesse Colwell, Holley Hollan, Tanner Carrick, Jesse Love, and Daison Pursley.

Besides the immense knowledge and experience Keith Kunz has developed over the years, their success is also attributed to the hard work of all their crew and the support of Toyota Racing Development (TRD) and other amazing sponsors.

Must See Racing

ROCKFORD, Ill. – Mother Nature has scored a victory against the Must See Racing Sprint Car Series’ attempt to compete at Illinois’ Rockford Speedway this weekend.

Track and series officials announced Thursday evening that the sprint car portion of this weekend’s National Short Track Championship program at the quarter-mile bullring has been canceled and will not be rescheduled.

Potential weekend schedule adjustments due to a projected washout on Friday, as well as additional wet weather expected to span from Sunday through the middle of the coming week and heavy travel distances for many of the Must See Racing teams, all contributed to the decision.

The National Weather Service is calling for a 100 percent chance of rain on Friday, as well as a 50 percent chance of rain and thunderstorms for Sunday’s matinee program.

“This early decision, while difficult and disappointing, is our genuine best effort to do the right thing for everyone involved,” said Must See Racing President Jim Hanks. “Whenever possible, we try to avoid unnecessary and avoidable lost time and travel expenses for both our race teams and valued fans.

“Based on a forecast that predicts a realistic chance of rain for the day on Sunday, as well as additional rain coming into the weekend that may compact the schedule further, the track and MSR have determined that it is the best decision to cancel the sprint car portion of the event, rather than ignore the risk and forecast of probable inclement weather.”

The Rockford rainout is the third such weather-related postponement or cancellation for Must See Racing this season, after a postponement from June 1 at Michigan’s Berlin Raceway and the cancellation of the Lake Erie (Pa.) Speedway event that was scheduled for June 15.

With the Rockford weekend scrapped, the Must See Racing Sprint Car Series now looks toward its championship doubleheader, Oct. 18-19 at Ace Speedway in Altamahaw, N.C.

Swindell Open for Opportunity at Devil's Bowl Fall Nationals, Vankor Texas Sprint Car Nationals and World Finals

Inside Line Promotions - GERMANTOWN, Tenn. (Sept. 26, 2019) - Sammy Swindell has a 48-year winning streak on the line.

Swindell has captured at least one victory during every year he's competed. However, between misfortune, wet weather and a lack of consistent races, this year has been a roller coaster ride and he's still looking for a trip to Victory Lane to extend the streak.

Swindell is seeking a solid ride for any or all of the final marquee events of the 2019 season.

A trio of big-time races stand out starting with the 46th annual Fall Nationals at Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas, Oct. 18-19 with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour. Approximately two weeks later the ASCS National Tour invades Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas, for the Tony Stewart presents the Vankor Texas Sprint Car Nationals on Oct. 31 and Nov. 1. The Can-Am World Finals hosted by The Dirt Track in Charlotte in Concord, N.C., Nov. 7-9 featuring the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series is the final stout event circled on the calendar.

"We've done well at all three tracks throughout my career," he said. "We've earned a lot of wins at Devil's Bowl Speedway, nearly won at Texas Motor Speedway last year and have been to Victory Lane at Charlotte. I think with the right circumstances we can win at any of these events this year."

Swindell has been strong at Devil's Bowl Speedway, where he's won in the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s and 2010s. He has captured a trio of ASCS National Tour wins at the half-mile oval, including two in 1995 and most recently in 2010. Swindell has also earned a dozen World of Outlaws triumphs at the track.

Swindell hustled from 10th to third before he capped the Vankor Texas Sprint Car Nationals at Texas Motor Speedway with a runner-up result last year.

Swindell won the inaugural World of Outlaws race at The Dirt Track at Charlotte in May 2000 and he also visited Victory Lane there in 2012.

He is open for other opportunities outside of the three events as well.

The only race currently solidified on Swindell's schedule is a pavement winged midget race with Bertrand Motorsports on Oct. 5 at Lee USA Speedway in Lee, N.H., with the NorthEastern Midget Association. Swindell earned a fifth-place finish during his debut at the track on Aug. 16, which was also his most recent race.

"We're looking forward to getting back there," he said. "We had a good run to move forward in the heat and the feature last month. Since we're returning to a track we've been to the handicap system shouldn't bury us as deep in the field so that will give us a better shot at starting near the front than we've ever had."

Bacon Lands Two Hockett/McMillin Podiums – Four Crown and More this Weekend

Lonnie Wheatley, WINCHESTER, Ind. (September 26, 2019) – A trek to Missouri netted a pair of podium finishes for Brady Bacon in Lucas Oil Speedway’s Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial.

With a preliminary WAR Sprint Car win running the overall season total to nine triumphs, Brady Bacon looks for more with a full slate of action this weekend.

This weekend’s action begins with the USAC National Sprint Car series at Indiana’s Gas City I-69 Speedway on Thursday night.

“The Macho Man” will then take in Friday’s World of Outlaws Sprint Car card at Rossburg, Ohio’s Eldora Speedway before competing in the USAC Sprint Car, USAC Silver Crown and All Star Circuit of Champions winged Sprint Car portion of Saturday’s “Four Crown Nationals” at Eldora Speedway.

The two-time USAC National Sprint Car champion enters the weekend sitting third in series points and can secure the car owner’s USAC Silver Crown title for the Klatt Enterprises No. 6 entry with a strong outing on Saturday.

Bacon enters the weekend after finishing out the Hockett/McMillin Memorial with finishes of second in the non-wing WAR Sprint Car portion of the event and third in the winged 360-ci Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour portion.

The three-day event got off to a rough start with Bacon eliminated from Thursday night’s ASCS heat race action.

“We were fast, we just got ran over and taken out,” Bacon said of the heat race incident. “Then in the qualifier, we went from ninth and about to take third and the power steering pump stripped out.”

Gridding deep in “B” Main action, Bacon salvaged the night by rallying to a fourth-place finish. “We at least got a few points for the night,” Bacon commented.

Bacon rebounded on Friday to win the WAR non-wing feature event and posted a fourth-place finish in ASCS action to earn a front row starting position in Saturday’s qualifiers.

“I thought we had a chance to win the ASCS feature too,” Bacon says. “Then there was a late red and the car wasn’t quite as good after that.”

Set for the Hockett/McMillin Memorial finale on Saturday, Bacon was in contention for the WAR Non-Wing Sprint Car feature win before settling for runner-up honors aboard the Longworth No. 410 Sprint Car.

“We were right there with (Chris) Windom, then the engine started getting too hot so we just had to ride it out,” Bacon says.

In the winged ASCS portion, Bacon finished second in his qualifying race to secure the 16th starting position for the feature event and rallied through the field to capture a third-place finish.

“It was really heavy because of all the rain,” Bacon comments. “We had a good car and picked them off one-by-one. We got up to sixth and then with a couple of late yellows we were able to get up to third.”

With a weekend of no points implications in the books, it’s back to points action this weekend with a pair of USAC Sprint Car events and the USAC Silver Crown owners’ championship pursuit along with two nights of winged Sprint Car action.

Must See Racing Sprint Car Series

HOLLY, Mich. – Charlie Schultz doesn’t need any extra motivation going into this weekend’s Must See Racing Sprint Car Series presented by Engine Pro event at Illinois’ Rockford Speedway.

He’s been ready to chase redemption at the quarter-mile bullring for more than a year.

Schultz will take aim at the victory in Sunday’s Must See Racing event at Rockford after leading the first 48 laps of last year’s 50-lap feature before being passed by Jimmy McCune coming to the white flag.

In that event, Schultz ultimately crossed the finish line a heartbreaking second, and he’s looking to move the needle by one position this time around.

“Man, I think everyone figures that this one is definitely high on the priority list to get it done this time after that race last summer. We were so strong then,” Schultz lamented. “It was definitely a heartbreaker to lose it after leading that many laps, but I think it actually pushed us to be even stronger.

“When you consider that we came back a month later after that one and won (at Berlin), I think it was motivation for all of us on the team, even though it still stings even now. Rockford owes us one.”

Schultz noted that Rockford, being one of the shortest tracks on the series schedule, is a facility that suits his driving style well – given that he came from a karting background in his youth.

“I do think it’s a good place for us because of the fact that it’s a tight, small ratio (in the corners),” said Schultz of Rockford. “It’s a lot like indoor racing in that respect. I’ve run indoors at Columbus and Marion for a number of years in flat karts, and you just have to get up on the wheel.

“Rockford is one of those types of tracks and that suits my style, or my style suits it, however you want to say it,” Schultz added. “You have to be aggressive to be successful there, and I feel like we will be.”

Considering that Schultz hasn’t been back to Must See Racing victory lane since his win at Michigan’s Berlin Raceway in August of 2018, he’s feeling the impact of a 13-month winless drought.

That’s meant that for he and team owner John Reiser, the chase to end that dry spell is in high gear.

“There's always the push to win races, especially from a team perspective, and that’s why we keep coming to the race track. We go because we enjoy it and have fun, too, but ultimately at the end of the day you want to win races and run up front,” said Schultz. “We’ve been running up front and just haven’t quite gotten to a point where we’ve closed up the deal that last little bit.

“It seems like we don't always start off real strong, but usually by the middle of the summer we get along pretty well. And by the end of the year we’re right where we need to be,” Schultz added. “I think we just need to work on getting off to a little bit stronger of a start. We started (doing some of that) at the beginning of the season, so we’re not quite so far behind, but losing some races to the rain and scheduling issues has been frustrating.

“That’s cost us a couple of races that we could have been building on, but we’re not going to give up. We’re going to keep fighting and see where that gets us.

Schultz, who sits well inside the top five in points entering the weekend, will have to contend in a field including the likes of defending series champion Jimmy McCune; his nephew Anthony McCune; National Sprint Car Hall of Famer Jeff Bloom; Canadian Ryan Litt and Brian Gerster, Must See Racing’s all-time fast qualifier over its 10-year history.

Saturday’s program features the Rumble for the Record time-attack special, before heat racing and a special 54-lap main event takes center stage on Sunday afternoon alongside the ARCA Midwest Tour.

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

On Sunday, pit gates open at 8 a.m. CT, with hot laps at 10:45 a.m. Heat racing will commence at 1 p.m. sharp and the feature will follow later in the afternoon.

Ford Performance and Tony Stewart Racing Announce New FPS 410 Sprint Car Engine Already Up To Speed

Ford Performance and Tony Stewart Racing team up to produce Ford engine for national sprint car series competition New sprint car engine named FPS 410 debuted last month and already has one victory with driver Tony Stewart The FPS 410 will be back in action with Stewart on Fri., Sept. 27 at the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam, Wis.

DEARBORN, Mich., Sept. 26, 2019 – There’s a new engine on the Ford Performance block and Tony Stewart is making the most of it.

The newly-minted FPS 410, short for Ford Performance Stewart 410, is a collaboration between Ford Performance, Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing (TSR) and Durham Racing Engines to equip Stewart’s sprint car operation with Ford power.

The engine debuted on Aug. 16 at I-96 Speedway in Lake Odessa, Mich., and went to victory lane for the first time two weeks later when Stewart won an Interstate Racing Association (IRA) Outlaw Sprint Series event on Aug. 31 at the Plymouth (Wis.) Dirt Track.

Stewart will wheel his Ford-powered 410 sprint car this weekend, Sept. 27 – 28, in a pair of IRA events in Wisconsin. The IRA Sprint Series will visit the Dodge County Fairgrounds on Friday and the Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds on Saturday night.

“A lot of time and effort has been spent by our team working with the people at Tony Stewart Racing to make sure that when we put this engine in competition, it would be good right out of the box,” said Mark Rushbrook, global director, Ford Performance Motorsports.

“Seeing that come to fruition is a testament to all the hard work by everybody who has been involved in this project, and we look forward to Tony and others winning many more races with it in the years to come.”

“I am so incredibly proud to see the FPS 410 sprint car engine program come to fruition,” said Tony Stewart, three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion and TSR owner/driver. “The hours, innovation and effort that has gone into making this Ford program a reality is immeasurable.

“To not only have a race-ready engine right out of the gate, but to have had the privilege of competing with it on its maiden run is truly a highlight of my racing career. As both an owner and driver, I’m incredibly proud that our organization has had a hand in writing a new chapter in the history of sprint car racing alongside an iconic American brand like Ford.”

Reaching the point of having the engine race-ready was a challenge due to TSR’s intense racing schedule, which can include as many as three multi-state events per week. As a result, engineers decided to use actual races as part of the on-track validation process.

“We thoroughly dyno tested the engine at multiple phases to make sure that both performance and durability were where we wanted them,” said Christian Hertrich, motorsports powertrain supervisor, Ford Performance. “We didn’t have the opportunity to test it in a car until last month, because you need to have that real-world data to understand how it’s functioning. It just so happened that the first on-track test was an actual race.”

Development of the new Ford engine will continue through the rest of this season, with the hope that it may become part of a customer program in the near future.

“The goal of this engine program is to be able to introduce the FPS 410 engine to the sprint car community by this time next year”, Stewart said. “I know we have a powerplant that will immediately challenge for wins across many tracks and series. I really have to thank Mark (Rushbrook) and his engineering team and the resources they have allowed us to lean on. On the same level, Andy (Durham) has spent countless hours with Ricky (Warner), Ron (Shaver), Roush-Yates and many others. Without these folks, we wouldn’t be where we are today.”

Ford’s participation in sprint car racing has been limited, but that could be changing with the completion of this engine and TSR’s continued commitment to the series.

“This is another step in immersing ourselves in this form of racing,” said Rob Johnston, global marketing manager, Ford Performance. “Signing Chase Briscoe as a development driver and Stewart-Haas Racing switching to Ford in 2017 has opened new opportunities in sprint car racing from a marketing perspective.”

Fans can follow the progress of Tony Stewart and TSR on the web and on social media. More information can be found at www.tonystewartracing.com, as well as at www.tonystewart.com.

Devon Borden

Pacific Northwest’s Sprint Car sensation, Devon Borden, has been turning heads since climbing behind the wheel of his families’ Sprint Car at age 14. Borden – now 16 – who hails out of Raymond, has beaten some of the best Winged Sprint Car drivers at their craft.

This past weekend, the young Sprint Car sensation clinched the 2019 Summer Thunder Sprint Series championship – the youngest driver in history to do so. For good measure, Devon motored to victory in the final STSS race of the season in the potent Borden Auto Parts No. 8 Triple X.

While small in stature, Borden makes it up with a heavy right foot and natural talent. He displayed nerves of steel heading into the final two races of the Summer Thunder Sprint Car Series season on June 20-21 at the Central Washington State Fair Park Raceway in Yakima.

In 16 races with the STSS, he has recorded three wins, 10 top-fives, and 13 top-tens. However, the road to the championship was no easy task.

On May 4, Devon accomplished what many drivers before him could not do; he held off former World of Outlaws star and three-time STSS champion Jason Solwold at Skagit Speedway and drove to a victory that brought the house down.

The stars aligned once again on June 28 at the prestigious Fred Brownfield Classic at Grays Harbor Raceway. On opening night, the third-generation driver whipped the crowd into a frenzy after racing into the sunset, defeating veteran drivers John Carney II and three-time ASCS National champion Sam Hafertepe, Jr.

By virtue of his victory, Devon became the youngest winner in American Sprint Car Series’ history to win a feature event.

It was a storybook ending for Borden going into the final two nights of the STSS season. He went on to place third in the first night of competition and proceeded to tattoo the field in the 30-lap finale, en route to his third STSS win of the season.

This victory was Devon’s eighth overall win of the season, spread over four different tracks.

Devon Borden would like to thank all of the people who support his efforts, his fans and sponsors: XXX Race Co., Champion Race Oil, Gates, FVP Parts, Highline Performance, Grassroots Project, King Racing Products, Bridgewater Logging, PLP, Borden’s Auto Parts, and Fix Em Frank.

 

 

Hagar Produces Three Consecutive Top-Five Finishes at Hockett/McMillin Memorial

Inside Line Promotions - WHEATLAND, Mo. (Sept. 25, 2019) - Derek Hagar hustled to a trio of top-five results last weekend during the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway.

"On Thursday we didn't pull a great pill, which was consistent with the rest of our year," he said. "Thankfully we were able to capitalize on the number we pulled so that worked out in our favor. In our heat race we started sixth and finished fourth. Then we started second in our qualifier and finished first."

Hagar made it directly into the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour feature. He started seventh and made his way up to fourth. This marked his first top five of the weekend and put him in a great position regarding his event points standing.

"We started eighth in the heat race and gained some spots to finish fourth in our heat on Friday and then we started and finished fourth in a qualifier," he said. "Our performance wasn't enough that day so we had to run a B Main."

Hagar won a consolation race, which transferred him into the 19 th starting position in the main event. His car was locked down and he managed to pass 14 cars to finish fifth. He also earned the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars.

"With how well we ran the first two nights we were automatically in for the show on Saturday," he said. "We started fourth and made our way up to second at one point, but fell back to third. Then we had the red flag come out and my one tire was getting pretty flat. I couldn't stick the bottom like I had been before and I got passed. I couldn't be too upset with a fourth-place finish though.

"It was a really great weekend. We made the show all three nights while competing against 70 cars. I was definitely happy with our outcomes. This Saturday we head to Jackson Motor Speedway in Byram, Miss., for another ASCS Mid-South race. We've won the past two shows there so I'm hoping we can grab another victory."

Starks Maneuvers to Sixth-Place Outing During Kevin Gobrecht Classic

Inside Line Promotions - HAGERSTOWN, Md. (Sept. 25, 2019) - A sixth-place run during the Kevin Gobrecht Classic highlighted a hectic weekend for Trey Starks.

The Gobrecht Motorsports driver kicked off four races in four days on Thursday at BAPS Motor Speedway in York Haven, Pa., where he qualified seventh quickest before placing fourth in a heat race. He capped the night by advancing from 11th to sixth in the feature.

"We had a decent qualifying lap, but weren't so good in the heat race," he said. "We slowly moved forward in the feature. We had a good battle for sixth at the end. It was a track where you have to take what it will give you. It was a good night for us because we don't get to race there very often."

Starks then joined the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions for three straight nights of competition starting on Friday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa. He qualified 14th quickest overall and seventh in his group. An eighth-place outing in a heat race relegated him to the B Main. Starks claimed the fourth-and-final transfer position, but his A Main was short-lived.

"We qualified okay overall, but not very good in our group," he said. "We had a tough heat and didn't make it through there. We had to go through the B Main and we struggled. In the feature we picked up a bad vibration and had to pull off so that ended our night early."

Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa., hosted the Dirt Classic on Saturday. Starks timed in 40th quickest. He advanced from eighth to seventh in the first round of heat races before winning the second heat. Unfortunately, the night ended in the B Main.

"We had some issues going on in qualifying that we hadn't had before," he said. "In the first heat race we had an outboard brake caliper break off and wedge itself between the rotor and the wheel so we were just trying to survive. The second round of heats we did okay and won it, but we still weren't that fast. That put us starting 10th in the B Main and we couldn't really go anywhere."

The weekend wrapped up on Sunday at Hagerstown Speedway. Starks qualified 15th quickest overall and fifth in his group to miss the heat race inversion by only one spot. He overcame an eighth-place heat race result by winning the B Main before the night concluded with an 18 th-place result in the main event.

"We didn't qualify terrible, but we were off," he said. "We didn't get a good start in our heat so we made some big changes for the B Main. We were really good and the car was fast in open air. In the feature we picked up a few spots, but just couldn't get rolling."

Starks is slated to return to action Oct. 4-5 at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., during the National Open with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series.

Mallett Qualifies for All Three Features at Hockett/McMillin Memorial

Inside Line Promotions - WHEATLAND, Mo. (Sept. 25, 2019) - Jordon Mallett entered the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial last weekend at Lucas Oil Speedway with one goal in mind - to make the feature each night and give himself a shot.

Mallett did just that during his first career visit to the 'The Diamond of Dirt Tracks,' where he qualified for all three nights of Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour A-Main action, highlighted by two 12th-place finishes and a 14th-place result.

"I was pleased with the performance for never having been there before," he said. "To have that quality of cars and quantity and to not have to run a B Main all weekend was a great feeling for our team."

With more than 70 drivers competing in the event, Mallett launched Thursday night's opener by starting second in a heat and advancing one position to take the checkered flag as the winner. It gave him enough points to advance to the qualifiers, where he started sixth and passed one car to finish fifth. As a result of being among the top 16 cars in passing points, Mallett secured the 13th starting spot in the night's feature.

On a track that didn't allow much passing, Mallett struggled to make up ground in the feature and ultimately lost one position to finish 14 th.

"Early on in the night the track was really heavy and come feature-time we judged wrong on what the track would do," he said. "You had to capitalize on guys making mistakes and we just didn't really capitalize on it when we needed to."

Friday night started similar as Mallett won a heat race for the second time in as many nights. In the qualifier he started fifth and passed one car to finish fourth, good enough to secure him the 13th starting spot in the feature.

Mallett passed one car in the A Main to finish 12th. The top 15 was the Greenbrier, Ark., native's 22nd top-15 finish of the season.

"I was frustrated with myself after Night 1 that I judged the track wrong and we tried to change things up a bit," he said. "The track came to us with about five laps to go. By then it was too late to really make any ground up, but we left feeling like we were gaining on things."

Sitting three spots outside of the top eight in points after two nights of racing, Mallett needed to run a Last Chance Qualifier on Saturday in hopes of having a shot to claim the $10,000 payday awaiting the feature winner. He started from the pole position and finished second, which secured the 15 th starting spot in the weekend finale.

Mallett moved forward in the opening laps before he made contact with another car and got pushed off the racing surface. He ended up in the work area, bringing out the caution. After checking the car over and tagging onto the rear of the field, Mallett advanced 12 positions to finish 12 th for the second consecutive night.

While he was hoping to contend for wins, it was a good points weekend for Mallett as he closed in on eighth place in the ASCS championship standings and now only trails by 79 points.

"The track was super heavy and everybody was so fast," he said. "We got knocked off the track and we brought out the caution. If that doesn't happen, I think we're looking at a lot better of a finish. Overall, it was a great points weekend for me and we've got confidence for the rest of 2019."

Mallett will take this weekend off and will head back to Arkansas where the team will prepare for a homecoming of sorts as they will pick back up Oct. 4-5 at the $10,041-to-win Short Track Nationals hosted by I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark.

Henderson and Sandvig Racing Score Top Five at Jackson Motorplex

Inside Line Promotions - JACKSON, Minn. (Sept. 25, 2019) - Justin Henderson and Mike Sandvig Racing overcame opening night misfortune to rebound for a fifth-place finish last Saturday night during the finale of the Casey's General Stores Open Wheel Nationals presented by Sea Foam at Jackson Motorplex.

This was the second consecutive event the team competed in with the Bumper to Bumper IRA Outlaw Sprint Series after a full season of racing at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa. Henderson also had the benefit of seasoned crew chief and National Sprint Car Hall of Famer Guy Forbrook helping turn wrenches on the car.

"Guy has been a long-time friend of ours and he was kind enough to help us as the chassis was one of his old chassis and he really helped us find a nice baseline for things," Henderson said. "To be able to focus on driving and knowing we had his experience and knowledge was a big deal and the car was really fast all weekend. He really got us dialed in."

Henderson began Friday night's opener by timing in 20th out of 29 cars with a lap of 13.999 seconds. As a result, the Tea, S.D., native started seventh in a heat race. He advanced three positions to finish fourth and qualify for the feature.

Henderson lined up 12th and ran as high as eighth before brake problems forced him to pull off the track with 10 laps to go. He was credited with a 21st-place finish.

"We didn't qualify very good and we put ourselves in a tough position needing to come from 12th," he said. "We broke the nose wing under a caution and then lost brakes completely so I got off the track before things got bad. But the car was great up to that point."

Henderson showed incredible resolve as he unloaded fast during Saturday night's finale by timing in third quickest among 26 competing cars with a lap of 12.901 seconds. In his heat race he started fourth and moved forward two positions to finish second, which locked him into the A Main.

Henderson, who started eighth, utilized the bottom of the track on an early restart to move into the top five. He advanced as high as second before a caution came out with eight laps to go. Once again battling brake problems, he attempted to pass for the lead on the restart, but was unable to make the pass and he lost three positions during the final circuits to hang on for a fifth-place finish.

The top five was the sixth of the season for Henderson in the Sandvig Racing machine.

"We had a few bad restarts early and we got moving forward there toward the late stages of the race," he said. "But we lost brakes again and the car got really tight without them and we just held on for the best we could do. But I'm really happy with the speed we have found and the way the car is driving."

Henderson and Sandvig planned to race this coming weekend, but with expected rain in the forecast the team instead will prepare for the remaining races on their schedule. They are planning to race around eight to 10 more times this season with exact tracks and dates to be determined later.

Lawrence Charges to Top-10 Result With Texas Sprint Series

Inside Line Promotions - KENNEDALE, Texas (Sept. 25, 2019) - Zane Lawrence recorded another top-10 finish last Saturday at Kennedale Speedway Park during a Texas Sprint Series show.

"We had a decent car last weekend," he said. "Kennedale is just a place where it's difficult to pass. We kind of got behind early and it's hard to come back from that. We made ground and still ended up with a top 10 though."

Lawrence, who was driving for Bob Odom, started a heat race from the outside of the third row. He finished where he started, which lined him up on the outside of the 10th row for the feature. Lawrence made ground on restarts and found himself with a 10th-place result once the checkered flag was waved.

"It wasn't a bad weekend to wrap up the season with," he said. "The only way you could pick off a couple spots was on restarts. After that everybody kind of just fell in line.

"Again, I can't thank Bob enough for this opportunity this year. It's been fun racing with him and I'm looking forward to more of that."

The result was Lawrence's sixth top 10 of the season in 11 starts.

Reutzel Secures All Star Title Again on Saturday after another Two-Win Weekend

Lonnie Wheatley, CLUTE, Texas (September 25, 2019) – Last weekend’s All Star Circuit of Championship set of events through Central Pennsylvania and Maryland was exactly what Aaron Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team needed to secure a second consecutive All Star Circuit of Champions title.

With a Friday night win at Williams Grove Speedway and a Sunday score at Hagerstown Speedway to push his season win total 17 overall to go along with a podium finish in Saturday’s Dirt Classic at Lincoln Speedway, Reutzel and the Folkens Brothers Trucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X team have all but finished off a second series championship in a row.

“All we have to do is show up on Saturday to win the championship,” Reutzel said of Saturday’s All Star portion of Eldora Speedway’s Four Crown Nationals in Rossburg, OH.

“That was the primary goal coming into the season and we’ve done it again,” Reutzel. “Between Josh (Baughman) and everyone else on this team, I have a great bunch of people around me that make all this happen.”

Along with Saturday’s All Star Circuit of Champions finale, Reutzel will also take in a pair of World of Outlaws events this weekend beginning with Wednesday night’s card at Illinois’ Jacksonville Speedway and then Friday’s “Befour the Crowns Showdown” at Eldora.

Reutzel goes into this week’s events with at least one feature one over each of the past six weekends since racing to a top-five finish in the Knoxville Nationals aboard the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment machine.

Reutzel wasted little time getting his first win of last weekend by wiring the All Star field at Williams Grove Speedway’s “Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial” for his 14th series score of the year and second in a row atop the storied half-mile Central Pennsylvania clay oval in Mechanicsburg.

After a heat race win, Reutzel drew the pole for the Dash and won that to secure the pole starting position for the feature before leading all 30 laps en route to the $6,000 payday.

“We actually missed it some in qualifying, but it worked out and put us front row in the heat race and then we drew the pole for the Dash,” Reutzel says.

From there, Reutzel took care of his end of the deal by keeping the field at bay aboard the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspensions entry.

“We were really good in the feature, we were low in three and four and running the top of one and two,” Reutzel explains. “I got to lapped cars and I noticed they were starting to pull away some, then I heard someone down low. I moved to the bottom and felt it starting to take some rubber and that was pretty much it.”

Moving on to Lincoln Speedway’s $20,000-to-win Dirt Classic on Saturday night, Reutzel set his 21st quick time of the year to kick off the night and then earned the front row outside starting position for the feature with finishes of first and fifth in twin heat race action.

Reutzel led the initial 24 laps of the main event before settling for third at the stripe.

“It was dead slick for the ‘A’, it was really good,” Reutzel says. “When (Brian) Montieth got by, I was just biding my time. When we got to lapped traffic, I wasn’t sure what I could do and what I couldn’t do.”

Reutzel found his opportunities and made one last bid at the win.

“I about had him once, but I got too greedy with the gas and spun the tires and let him back by,” Reutzel explains. “I tried a Hail Mary on the last lap for the win but it didn’t stick and let Danny (Dietrich) by for second.”

Reutzel and crew finished out the weekend at Maryland’s Hagerstown Speedway on Sunday.

After a heat race win and a Dash win, Reutzel gunned into the feature lead from the pole position and led all 30 laps to score his 15th series win of the year and 17th overall.

“We had such a good car,” Reutzel says. “We got out front and I never had go run harder than 80%, everything just fell into place and the car was perfect. It’s nice to have those kind of nights.”

With the All Star Circuit of Champions title effectively locked up, Reutzel looks to add to the win column with this week’s racing action in Illinois and Ohio.

2019 Quick Stats: 76 races, 17 wins, 38 top-fives, 51 top-tens.

Next Up:

Wednesday – World of Outlaws Sprint Cars at Jacksonville (IL) Speedway.

Friday – World of Outlaws Sprint Cars at Eldora Speedway (Rossburg, OH).

Saturday – All Star Circuit of Champions season finale at Eldora Speedway’s (Rossburg, OH) “Four Crown Nationals”.

Harry Hanson would race to the win and a trip to Rock Auto Victory Lane and a 3rd Place Finish in the points. In the 40 year history of the Punky, Harry is the first sprint champion of the event and the only driver present to have actually raced against Punky! Brad Peterson would finish 3 spots ahead of Rob Caho but just not quite enough to edge him out of the championship.

A feature Results: Hanson, Anderson, Peterson, Bowers, Lewerer, Caho Jr., Berger, Brandt, Stordahl, Johnson, Hansen, Vadnais, Hansen, Huesmann, J, Klemko, C Klemko, N Klemko, Buck (DNF)

The Traditional Season Champion would be Rob Caho Jr. and the Rookie of the Year Ryan Johnson

The Winged Sprints gave the crowd excitement as the top two in the field Harry Hanson and Rick Kobs would end up dropping out of the race midway through the feature. Kobs had motor issues and a fire under the hood while virtually the same time Harry Hanson was hopping the cushion and clipping the wall. Gunner Cummings would restart the race in the lead and hold off the hard charging Berger even having what sounded like fuel or electrical issues, Cummings would find himself in Rock Auto Victory Lane.

A Feature Results: Cummings, Berger, Stordahl, Kirchner, Huseman, Johnson, Kobs (DNF), Hanson (DNF), Chevaier (DNF) and Buck (DNS)

The Winged Sprint Season Champion would be Gunner Cummings and the Rookie of the Year Jack Berger!

 

 

Cory Turner Reflects On First Career Top-10 at Canadian Sprint Car Nationals

 CAISTOR CENTRE, Ont. (September 25, 2019) – Now with the event in the rearview mirror, Cory Turner has had time to reflect on his recent accomplishment at Ohsweken Speedway’s 15th annual Canadian Sprint Car Nationals on September 13 and 14 where he earned his first career top-10 finish at the event with a sixth-place result behind the wheel of his Petro Plus/Burger Barn/Mobil 1 No.13 360 Sprint Car.

The $10,000 USD-to-win event has been the biggest event on Ohsweken’s schedule since it started in 2005. This year was no different with 60 cars signing in for competition at the major event. The weekend started with Friday night’s Burger Barn Night Before the Nationals as drivers were competing to earn one of three starting spots in Saturday’s main event by winning one of three 15-lap Features on Friday night. Turner did just that.

Turner started seventh in his heat race, which gave him the opportunity to drive forward for some big passing point gains. He took full advantage of the offer and drove to a second-place finish which put him fourth overall in passing points and gave him a starting spot outside the front row of the first 15-lap Feature.

“We had an all-out thrash to get ready for our Feature because we were in the fifth heat, but the first Feature. So we only have 15, maybe 20 minutes. We thrashed and were ready,” Turner said. “Mark Smith battled us hard early and we ended up getting back by him and then led the rest of the race and won. So that was pretty cool that it locked us into the show for Saturday. It took a lot of pressure off.”

The win meant Turner wouldn’t start any worse than ninth in Saturday’s 35-lap, $10,000 USD-to-win event, but the preliminary action on Saturday meant he could still try to improve on it. Turner time trialed in the fifth group and set quick time for the night, a feat that surprised even him.

“Nate came over just before I went out and said the top was already blown off and the faster guys were down in the ditch,” Turner explained. “We ran good and we were quick time in our group. They called us out to the front stretch and I thought we were quick Canadian time, and we were quick overall. I didn’t think we would be quick overall coming from the fifth group.”

“We have to thank Grisdale Racing Products for the Fast Time overall award, Inside Track Motorsport News for their Fast Canadian bonus, and we have to thank Mark and Angie Rinaldi at Brighton Speedway for the top Southern Ontario Sprints car bonus as well,” Turner said. “All of those bonuses and their support really mean a lot to our team and the sport.”

The quick time was good for Turner, but meant he had a challenged ahead of him in his heat race. Starting third in his heat, Turner was tasked with advancing to first or second in order to qualify for the pole dash in order to improve his starting spot in the main event.

I got pinched on the start and I couldn’t get out of the bottom, so I fell back to sixth. I got back to fourth, but we didn’t transfer because they only take the top three,” Turner explained. “We ran the B-Main at the back to try a few things. I did that for three or four laps and it worked.”

After his B-Main test session, Turner prepared for the biggest race of the season. He lined-up ninth on the starting grid and set out to race forward as quick as possible in what turned out to be a caution-free race.

“I got off to a bit of a slow start in the Feature,” Turner said. “I started in the inside row in ninth and I got pinched a little bit and once I got going I got up on the outside and started driving around guys. The race ran straight through and we got to sixth and I was pretty happy about that.”

Turner was “pretty pumped” about his team’s performance in the biggest event of the year.

“We were good all weekend. “it was the slickest Nationals we’ve had in a while,” Turner said. “We missed it just a little bit in the heat race on Saturday with the circumstances. I would love to see what we could have done if we were in the pole dash and started sixth or seventh. I think we were capable of running fourth or fifth.”

Cory Turner would like to thank all of his marketing partners and team supporters as well as the combined effort from his outstanding Burger Barn Racing and Team Turner Racing crew for their efforts during an exciting season of action at Ohsweken Speedway.

South Australian Wingless Sprint

A new South Australian Speedway season begins this Saturday night (September 28) at the Murray Machining and Sheds Murray Bridge Speedway with the season opener featuring an impressive early season line-up of Wingless Sprints. In all a total of ??? from two states will contest the first race meeting of the 2019/20 season with a great mix of experience and youth.

The nomination list for the season opener includes several drivers who took part in the pre-season practice earlier in the month including Anthony Tapley, who looked impressive straight out of the box in the Andrew May owned #47, local racer Brett Ireland, Tamika Pitcher, Nicole Southby and Cory Hodgson, who will make a welcomed return to competition behind the wheel of his immaculate #27.

Currently the local contingent also includes “The Prez” Darryl Sloan, Brad Evans, Norm Moore, Mitchell Broome, Patrick Monaghan and Latisha Heyler.

The only local rookie in the field will be teenage Hayden Vickers. After cutting his first laps in a race car only a couple of weeks ago he will make his Speedway debut this Saturday night in his black #15 after stepping up from the dirt kart ranks.

With the season yet to begin across the border several Victorians are looking for an early season run as almost a third of the field will travel from the Garden State. Boyd and Reece Harris from Bendigo, Jeremy Pearson, Marlin Carrigan-Walsh and Cobden teenager Blake Walsh will join the line-up for what should be a great way to kick off the 2019/20 South Australian Wingless Sprint Season.

Following this weekend’s event, the South Australian Wingless Sprint season will continue with club events at Murray Bridge on October 5 and 19, before the opening 2 rounds of the State Series will be held on November 2 and 16 at Murray Bridge and the Tolmer Speedway at Bordertown respectively.

Other major events throughout the season include further rounds of the State Series at Murray Bridge, Mildura and Waikerie, the $10,000 to win Wingless Sprint Super Series Final at Murray Bridge in March (6 & 7) and the South Australian Championship at the Borderline Speedway at Mount Gambier on March 20 and 21, 2020.

 

 

Friday’s Earl Halaquist Memorial to decide 2019 A-Verdi Storage Containers Patriot Sprint Tour Championship, standard PST show to follow
Contact: Paul Harkenrider
PST Media
(Fonda, NY) In what will be a very long held over Earl Halaquist Memorial, the race will be finally made up this Friday, September 27 at the Fonda Speedway. The show will pay $3000 to win and $300 to start. Following that A-Main event will be a regular program, also paying $3000 to win and $300 to start!
The field is already set for the Earl Halaquist memorial as heats were able to be complete on May 25 before rain forced to cancel the remaining show. A complete show with new heats, dash and A-Main will follow.
Despite not winning a Patriot Sprint Tour A-Main since Mid-July, Davie Franek has still been able to maintain the point lead over Joe Trenca and Jordan Thomas heading into Friday. Only 41 points separate Franek and Trenca at the top of the point standings. Jordan sits quietly in third as he trails Franek by 51 points. Anything can happen come Friday night.
It is important to make mention that only the Earl Halaquist Memorial will be scored as a standard PST event while the second feature will be scored by show up points.
Also, $645 has been sold in lap money for the 14th edition of the Earl Halaquist Memorial, an event that pays tribute to a northeast sprint car legend. Halaquist amassed 52 United Racing Club wins and six series championships (1962, ’64, ’66,’67, 68’, 69). Perhaps his most impressive season was in 1967 when he accomplished 14 feature wins! He has been inducted into several Hall of Fames including the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame back in 2010. Halaquist passed away in 2001 at the age of 75 but his legacy in sprint car racing here in northeast continues to live on.
The first ever race honoring Halaquist was back in 2004 at the Black Rock (Now Outlaw) Speedway where Blake Breen was the winner. PST sanctioned the event also in 2005 and 2006 where George Suprick and Chuck Hebing have won respectively. The event then moved to Fonda Speedway under the Empire Super Sprints banner from 2007 to 2013. Afton Speedway hosted the event from 2014 to 2016 before returning to Fonda the last two seasons.
There have been several different winners of the event that includes the names of Justin Barger, Doug Emery, Jessica Friesen, Jeff Cook, Matt Tanner, Steve Poirier and winner of the last two Earl Halaquist Memorials, Danny Varin.
This will be the fourth and fifth time the Patriot Sprint Tour will be visiting the historic half-mile in program history dating back to 2016. Past winners include Stewart Friesen, Davie Franek and Jared Zimbardi.

Brian Brown Picks Up Top Fives at Lincoln and Hagerstown and Top 10 at Williams Grove

Inside Line Promotions - HAGERSTOWN, Md. (Sept. 24, 2019) - Brian Brown earned a trio of top-10 finishes last weekend while competing with the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions, including back-to-back fifth-place runs to cap the busy weekend.

Sept. 20 - Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa. - Qualifying: 4; Heat race: 3 (3); Feature: 10 (11).

"With the way the format is you either have to qualify first or second quick overall or you want to be slow where you're on the front row of your heat race," Brown said. "We qualified too well and we had Kerry Madsen and Brian Montieth in front of us in the heat. We made a run at Montieth and then settled in and ran third. We gained a spot in the feature before it laid rubber. To qualify well and have good speed, it was a good night overall."

Sept. 21 - Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa. - Qualifying: 3; Heat race #1: 1 (1); Heat race #2: 5 (9); Feature: 5 (4).

"It started off real well," Brown said. "Our expectations weren't real high because it can be a confidence killer. It's one of the tougher places to race in the country. We were happy with qualifying third and winning our first heat race. The second round of heats was totally inverted. Some guys in front of us crashed. We lined up in fourth and got right into third. I got a little overaggressive and over the cushion. It sucked me in and turned me over. Lots of teams came and pitched in, including Cory Eliason and T.J. Stutts, so we appreciate that. We ended up finding some stuff that wasn't right on Sunday so to get out of there with a top five in the feature was a very, very good result."

Sept. 22 - Hagerstown Speedway in Hagerstown, Md. - Qualifying: 7; Heat race: 3 (4); Feature: 5 (12).

"We qualified too good," Brown said. "We went out late and were about two tenths better than everyone around that time. That makes you have to start fourth in your heat and you have to run in the top two to make the dash. We got to third, but that started us 12th in the feature. We scratched and clawed to get another top five. That was a really good run for us. We felt like if we could have started toward the front maybe we would have had a shot to contend for the win."

UP NEXT - Friday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., and Saturday at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa., for the Commonwealth Clash with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series

"We'd like to get a win at Williams Grove," Brown said. "We're getting more of a grasp on it every time we're there. We've worked with a particular package since we've got out to Pennsylvania knowing places are going to get slick. Every time we run it we get a little better and I think our results show it."

Hill Captures Career-Best Finish at Lucas Oil Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - WHEATLAND, Mo. (Sept. 24, 2019) - A career-best finish at Lucas Oil Speedway highlighted Alex Hill's weekend during the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour.

"We had a pretty decent weekend," she said. "The first night didn't end so well, but we made some fast laps and made the A Main one night. We were fast the first two nights and passed cars in about every race."

Hill qualified for her first A Main at Lucas Oil Speedway on Friday night, when she finished 15th among a stout field of approximately 70 drivers after winning her heat race and finishing fifth in a qualifier.

"We drew well and won the heat race, so that got our night off to a good start," she said. "Unfortunately, once the feature started it was pretty much a race to get to the bottom and on the start I had nowhere to go. We had a decent car. It was just hard to pass."

Hill charged from ninth to fourth in her heat race on Thursday night before finishing fifth in her qualifier, which put her on the pole for the 18-car B Main.

"I had a bad start in the B Main and dropped back to about fourth or fifth," she said. "While I was in a close race for third with a couple of other cars, another car and I got together and I had to restart at the back. I was able to move back up to eighth by the finish. But after the checkered flag, another car made contact with ours and I flipped. One of those racing deals, but a bad way to end the night."

The event's final night saw Hill finish sixth in a Last Chance Qualifier before closing out her weekend with a sixth-place finish in a B Main.

"Saturday night went okay," she said. "It was just tough to pass after all the rain. The track was pretty much hammer-down for us."

Hill will take this weekend off before competing in the 32nd annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., on Oct. 4-5.

Price Highlights Hockett/McMillin Memorial With 13th-Place Finish in Opener

Inside Line Promotions - WHEATLAND, Mo. (Sept. 24, 2019) - Robbie Price traveled to Lucas Oil Speedway last weekend for the first time ever for three nights of racing at the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial.

His best run during the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour tripleheader was a 13 th-place finish during Thursday night's opener.

"We started off real strong and showed we could advance forward even not ideal circumstances," he said. "It was a tough week and we gained a lot of experience, but we just couldn't stay out of trouble."

With a field of 70-plus drivers competing in the marquee event, Price started and finished first in a heat race, which scored him enough points to advance to the qualifiers. In the qualifier, he started fourth and passed two cars to finish second. As a result of being among the top 16 cars in passing points, Price earned the fourth starting spot in the night's feature.

Unfortunately, Price made contact with another car and got spun around on the opening lap of the race, sending him to the rear. Following multiple cautions and two red flags, Price passed 12 cars to finish 13th.

"We were really good all night and it was unfortunate what happened," he said. "It was really one lane and I made moves where I could. We were able to advance forward enough that the night wasn't a complete loss."

Night 2 featured another full night of preliminary racing action and proved disappointing for Price. He got tangled up in an accident in a heat race and was forced to scratch for the rest of the night due to damage sustained.

"I was moving forward and focused on getting into the A Main and we just got up over a wheel," he said. "It was a tough pill to swallow. If we just get in the show Friday night, we are looking good for Night 3 and I'm feeling good about my chances. Instead we're in a hole and needing help so it was frustrating."

With a $10,000 payday awaiting the winner of the Saturday night finale, Price unloaded a back-up car and went to work looking to rebound from the previous night. Price placed seventh in a Last Chance Qualifier and third in a B Main to miss a transfer by only one position. He used a provisional to start at the back of the field in the main event.

With a car that he had never piloted until Saturday night, Price felt optimistic about the adjustments the team had made throughout the night. However, after jumping the cushion on Lap 2 to avoid a wreck, he ripped the oil line off the car and ended his night prematurely again. He was credited with a 23rd-place finish.

"I feel like we should've transferred through the B Main and we were really gaining on the car as the night went on," he said. "I don't know that we were going to win or anything, but we definitely could've made up some ground and left with a good finish and that's disappointing."

After a weekend filled with damaged race cars and tough luck, Price is looking forward to a well deserved week off before returning behind the wheel for the $10,041-to-win Short Track Nationals Oct. 4-5 at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark.

"I went into Missouri with three cars put together and feeling good about the end of the season and left banged up on the track and in the pocket." he said. "To say we need a breather is an understatement. We'll take this time to regroup and I'm looking forward to coming back strong and focused next weekend."

Bogucki Looks to Rebound at Creek County After Tough Hockett/McMillin Memorial

Inside Line Promotions - WHEATLAND, Mo. (Sept. 24, 2019) - Bad luck seemed to haunt Scott Bogucki last weekend as he competed with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour during the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway.

However, the SawBlade.com backed driver is ready to put it all behind him and begin another march up the series' standings as the schedule is down to six races remaining.

"It was the worst weekend ever," he said. "Everything that could go wrong did. It began with the first heat the first night when the front axle broke and it never got better. I destroyed a car and got a concussion to boot.

"The car just never felt good. I couldn't get the race car into the track if that makes sense. We never really got any speed all weekend."

Bogucki's bad weekend at Lucas Oil Speedway began Thursday with the broken front axle. He utilized a provisional, made a lap in the feature and pulled in.

The next night started better with a fourth to third heat race performance followed by a fourth place run in both a qualifier and a B Main, just missing a transfer. He took another provisional and flipped violently five laps into the feature.

"I just wanted to try and gets some laps to see what we needed to do to get the car rolling better and I got into the cushion and flipped," he said.

On Saturday, Bogucki was forced to utilize another provisional and once again he took the green in the feature and pulled in.

"I want to thank Brian and Kurt Mueller for coming down from Illinois to help out," he said. "Also thanks to Jean Mueller for taking me to the hospital and making sure I was okay. We will be back and we expect better results for SawBlade and all our sponsors."

The tough weekend dropped Bogucki from third to fifth in the ASCS National Tour standings.

"I can honestly say I'm getting better and not dwelling on the negative stuff like I used to,' he said. "We were down, but we will shake it off and get ready for Creek County. I'm excited to get back there. During Speedweek we started on the front row and finished third."

Bogucki's next event is Oct. 10-11 at Creek County Speedway in Sapulpa, Okla., for the Fall Fling.

Giovanni Scelzi Garners Podium at Williams Grove and Top 10 at Hagerstown

Inside Line Promotions - HAGERSTOWN, Md. (Sept. 24, 2019) - Giovanni Scelzi recorded a podium finish at Williams Grove Speedway and a sixth-place run at Hagerstown Speedway to highlight four straight nights of action last weekend.

The busy weekend began on Thursday when Scelzi made his debut at BAPS Motor Speedway in York Haven, Pa., where he qualified fourth quickest out of 26 competitors before placing third in both a heat race and the dash. Scelzi was running fourth late in the Kevin Gobrecht Classic feature when a crash resulted in a DNF.

"We were fast on Thursday," he said. "The curb was pretty gnarly so if you got over it you were in trouble. I got over the cushion, pushed and went into the fence. We had to rebuild a car on Friday so it was a tough start to the weekend."

The incident didn't slow down Scelzi and car owner Bernie Stuebgen on Friday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., where the team kicked off three straight Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions races by setting quick time during qualifying out of the 37 drivers.

Scelzi then advanced from fourth to third in a heat race before he won a dash to line up on the outside of the front row for the main event.

"That's a place I've been comfortable at from the start," he said. "The track went rubber down pretty quick in turns three and four. In turns one and two you could run the top or bottom. It was a game of who was brave enough to get out of the rubber to try to make a pass. I ran third most of the race and then fell to fourth, but I passed James (McFadden) with two laps to go when he tried the top and got out of the rubber. It was a good rebound to be on the podium."

The late-race pass secured a third-place finish for Scelzi.

Scelzi visited Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa., on Saturday for the Dirt Classic. He timed in 16th quickest before posting results of fourth and ninth in twin heat races. Scelzi ended the night fifth in the B Main, which was only one spot shy of transferring into the A Main.

"I ran fourth the first half of the race, but I made the wrong decision on a restart," he said. "I went to the top and Brandon Rahmer got underneath me and that was it."

Scelzi wrapped up the weekend with another great rebound on Sunday at Hagerstown Speedway, where he made his debut. He qualified fourth quickest out of 31 drivers, finished third in a heat race and advanced from third to second in a dash. The night concluded with a sixth-place finish in the feature.

"It was a gnarly race track, but a cool setting," he said. "We had a good heat and good dash. I picked the wrong lane on restarts in the feature and didn't get going fast enough. The cushion was too high and was dusty. It started taking rubber. It became a line to slide yourself in turns three and four. It was a learning experience and we got a good result out of it."

Scelzi is scheduled to head to Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, on Friday for the BeFour the Crowns Showdown with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series and on Saturday for the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions season finale before the weekend ends on Sunday at Kokomo Speedway in Kokomo, Ind., with the FAST Series.

"I'm looking forward to both tracks," he said. "I had a decent run at Eldora the last two nights of the Kings Royal in July. And Kokomo seems like a great place from what I've heard and from videos I've seen."

Crockett Earns Top 10 During All Three Nights of Hockett/McMillin Memorial

Inside Line Promotions - WHEATLAND, Mo. (Sept. 24, 2019) - Roger Crockett produced one of his most efficient weekends of the season during the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial.

Crockett garnered a top-10 finish each night at the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event hosted by Lucas Oil Speedway.

"Overall, I'm really happy," he said. "We were one of only I think four national drivers that made the main event without a provisional on Saturday. We didn't have to run a B Main all weekend. And we went from sixth to third in points. It's a slim margin, but it was a good weekend for us. We're happy to escape there with good runs and our car in good shape."

Crockett opened the tripleheader by advancing from third to second place in both a heat race and a qualifier on Thursday. He then finished where he started - sixth - in the main event.

"The car felt really good in hot laps," he said. "We were the fastest car when we went out and that carried through for another session so that felt good. We had really good speed and the car felt great in the heat race and qualifier. In the main event we weren't that great. The track was a lot slicker than I thought it would be. We held our own the whole race. I had higher expectations than that, but we weren't quite good enough."

Crockett advanced from sixth to fourth in a heat race on Friday. He then won a qualifier from third before picking up a position to place third in the main event.

"We were a little off in hot laps and the heat even though we went from sixth to fourth," he said. "We made a couple of changes and the car came to life in the qualifier. Then in the feature there was a wreck and I have no clue how I missed it. Upon missing that we packed 30-to-40 pounds of mud in the front of it. There's nothing you can do about it so we ran the whole race like that. The car was pretty good. We got next to (Josh) Baughman for the lead a couple of times and couldn't clear him. I spent too much time on the bottom and let Seth (Bergman) get a run on us so we finished third."

Crockett ranked third out of the 70-plus drivers following the two preliminary nights. That lined him up on the inside of the second row for Saturday's main event.

"We had quick time out of the eight cars in locked-in hot laps," he said. "We virtually made zero changes and the car was absolutely horrible in the main event. We were way, way, way too tight. Under green flag conditions I could hold my own, but on restarts or if I had to lift for somebody it was a handful. To wind up 10th is still pretty good when you had a car barely capable of making it around the race track. I should have freed my car up. It was devastating thinking we had a strong chance to win the race and we worked so hard to put ourselves in that position, but at least we were able to salvage a top 10."

Crockett's 10th-place result was his 19th top 10 of the season. He now ranks third in the ASCS National Tour championship standings with only six races remaining this season.

The next ASCS National Tour event is Oct. 10-11 at Creek County Speedway in Sapulpa, Okla., for the Fall Fling. Crockett might tackle the Short Track Nationals the prior weekend, but it will depend on his work load.

Wilson Excited for Two Nights of Action at Eldora Speedway This Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - HAGERSTOWN, Md. (Sept. 24, 2019) - Greg Wilson will wrap up the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions season this Saturday at one of his favorite tracks.

Wilson and his Hercules Tires, DNC Hydraulics, Ohio Logistics and Gear Off Road backed team enter the event at Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, ranked sixth in the championship standings.

"We've been having some car or engine issues the last few weeks so I'm hoping that we figure some stuff out," he said. "We're going to the engine dyno tomorrow. We worked on our car last week. I was excited for four nights in Central Pennsylvania, yet we struggled. Hopefully we'll learn a lot at the dyno that will help us."

Wilson plans to kick off the weekend by competing at Eldora Speedway on Friday with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink before the All Star season concludes at the half-mile oval on Saturday.

"Eldora has been one of our better tracks so that's always a confidence boost when you roll through the gates," he said. "If the track is wide and racy we seem to find ourselves toward the front by the end of the night."

Wilson is coming off a four-race weekend that featured mixed results. His best outing occurred on Thursday with a charge from 16th to 11 th during the Kevin Gobrecht Classic at BAPS Motor Speedway in York Haven, Pa.

"We fell back to last after about wrecking on the first lap," he said. "We passed four or five cars and then some guys wrecked. We weren't bad at the end of the race and we got back in there toward the top 10. We had a decent finish for pretty much starting the race last."

Wilson ended in the B Main on Friday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., and on Sunday at Hagerstown Speedway. A rally from 27 th to 19th on Saturday during the Dirt Classic hosted by Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa., was sandwiched in the middle.

"We weren't too bad early in the race at Lincoln, but the track got rubber down pretty quick and it was hard to make up spots," he said. "I think we could have ended up better if the track stayed racy longer, but in the end we were buried in the field by our struggles anyway."

Sept. 19 - BAPS Motor Speedway in York Haven, Pa. - Qualifying: 21; Heat race: 5 (7); Feature: 11 (16).

Sides Tackling Jacksonville, Eldora and Lernerville This Week

Inside Line Promotions - DODGE CITY, Kan. (Sept. 24, 2019) - Three different tracks highlight the upcoming World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series schedule for Jason Sides.

It begins on Wednesday at Jacksonville Speedway in Jacksonville, Ill., which is an elbows-up bullring. The actions shifts to Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, on Friday for the BeFour the Crowns Showdown and the week concludes on Saturday at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa., for the Commonwealth Clash.

"We'll go from a bullring to bigger tracks, but we do that all the time," he said. "Maybe because we grew up on some of that smaller stuff we've had success on those tracks, but now I'd rather stick with the bigger tracks. In the years past because this is later in the year we've had some pretty good runs in the September race at Eldora. Maybe the weather plays a factor there and the track doesn't get as slick as it does in July."

Sides earned his career-best finish at Jacksonville Speedway in 2014 when he placed eighth. He has won at Eldora Speedway and has been a contender at Lernerville Speedway.

Sides is coming off a doubleheader at Dodge City Raceway Park last weekend. He posted similar results each night with a 16th-place run on Friday and a 15th-place finish on Saturday.

"They had good weather and it was a good track, but it stayed wetter than we'd like the first night and didn't get wide," he said. "It's all about qualifying. We went out later than most on both nights and that hurts you a little bit, but there were some guys that went out later than us that did well. Maybe we've lost a little there."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 20 - Dodge City Raceway Park in Dodge City, Kan. - Qualifying: 15; Heat race: 5 (5); Feature: 16 (15).

Sept. 21 - Dodge City Raceway Park in Dodge City, Kan. - Qualifying: 16; Heat race: 5 (6); Feature: 14 (13).

Daniel Posts Career-Best World of Outlaws Result During Debut at Dodge City

Inside Line Promotions - DODGE CITY, Kan. (Sept. 24, 2019) - Mason Daniel made the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series dash for the first time in his career before he picked up a career-best World of Outlaws result last Friday during his debut at Dodge City Raceway Park.

Daniel qualified fifth quickest to open the night before a runner-up result in a heat race earned a spot into the dash. A sixth-place result in the dash gave Daniel the sixth starting position for the main event.

"I think we had a lot of speed," he said. "I enjoy that track and I think it's a great facility. Our first night there I felt comfortable off the bat. We were fifth in qualifying and just a bit off quick time, which is an improvement for where we've been at with the Outlaws. I made my first dash and we were having our best night with the Outlaws so that was exciting. The car felt great and the track was nice.

"On the warm-up lap before the start of the main event a car checked up in front of me. I wasn't looking far enough ahead I guess. I got on the brakes and ended up looping it. That put me to the tail of the field. We were able to get up to a top 15. I would have liked to have that starting position of sixth we would have had, but I was pleased we were able to drive from the back to 15th."

The 15th-place finish was his top result with 'The Greatest Show on Dirt.'

Daniel aimed for more on Saturday when he returned to the track, where he qualified 11th quickest and started a heat race on the outside of the second row.

"The second night was going well," he said. "I didn't have a chance to demonstrate any of that as we were involved in an incident on the first lap of the heat that destroyed our car. We weren't able to finish the night and will have to rebuild a car this week.

"We were having a good run with the Outlaws. It's important. Our 410 program is starting to come around. If we can qualify well it really means a lot. I think we have nine races left in the season so I'm excited to finish those out with the Outlaws."

Daniel plans on making his debut at three more tracks this week. He'll compete on Wednesday at Jacksonville Speedway in Jacksonville, Ill., with the World of Outlaws; on Saturday at Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, with the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions; and on Sunday at Kokomo Speedway in Kokomo, Ind., with the FAST Series.

"It's like at Dodge City where we are racing the best guys in the nation and I haven't been to that track," he said. "It's all about getting comfortable as soon as I can. I have to figure out what works for me and translate that into speed."

QUICK RESULTS -

Sept. 20 - Dodge City Raceway Park in Dodge City, Kan. - Qualifying: 5; Heat race: 2 (2); Dash: 6 (3); Feature: 15 (6).

Trenca Scores Outlaw Fall Nationals Win at Outlaw Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - DUNDEE, N.Y. (Sept. 24, 2019) - Joe Trenca hustled for nearly seven years to earn his first career winged sprint car victory. He achieved that goal last month and seven races later returned to Victory Lane.

The Mucci Motorsports driver captured the Patriot Sprint Tour's Outlaw Fall Nationals at Outlaw Speedway last weekend, winning the dash on Friday and the main event on Saturday.

"The first one will always be the best, but this one is pretty cool," he said. "It's the best paying race we have around besides the Canadian Nationals and Outlaw is my favorite track."

Trenca qualified fourth quickest to kick off the action on Friday. That lined him up on the inside of the second row for the 15-lap dash, which determined Saturday's main event lineup.

"I wanted to time trial fifth to put us on the outside pole, but it worked out," he said. "We fell to fifth on a bad start. I put the left side of the car in some mud and spun the tires. We were able to pass a couple of guys back and got the lead on Lap 7. We checked out and I think we won by two seconds."

Saturday didn't start well for Trenca.

"I ran two hot lap sessions before the A Main," he said. "We were no good. I kept yanking the wing back and trying every lane to get comfortable. The track was a lot slicker and slower. I knew what we had to do and where we needed to be. Luckily we adjusted properly and were able to control the whole race."

Trenca led the distance of the 30-lap feature to garner the victory.

"Lapped traffic was pretty bad," he said. "I ran the bottom pretty much the whole race until we got to lapped cars. I heard guys on the outside of me, but I never saw a nose."

Trenca takes momentum into a Patriot Sprint Tour event this Friday at Fonda Speedway in Fonda, N.Y. He will begin the night by starting fourth in a make-up feature before a full race program begins.

"Fonda has been good and bad to us," he said. "I feel good about starting fourth, especially when it's early in the night. When it gets slow and slick later in the night it's been tough, but we've also improved our program for when the tracks are slick."

Dover Makes All Three Hockett/McMillin Memorial A Mains for Third Straight Year

Inside Line Promotions - WHEATLAND, Mo. (Sept. 24, 2019) - Jack Dover managed a neat feat during his final three starts of the season driving for Rick and Chris Bowers.

The team qualified for the A Main each night during the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial last weekend at Lucas Oil Speedway, making Dover the only driver to make the main event during all three nights of the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event each of the last three years without using a provisional.

"That's a pretty cool stat," he said. "The Bowers and I have had great success at the Jackson Nationals and the Hockett/McMillin Memorial, which are two of the bigger 360 sprint car events in the country. When there are 50 or more of the best drivers there it says a lot that we can not only make the A Mains, but we usually run well and can contend."

This year's event began on Thursday with Dover placing sixth in a heat race before he charged from eighth to fourth in a qualifier. A runner-up result from fifth in a B Main earned him a spot in the main event.

"We were up to 10th from 21st when a driver got sideways in front of me," he said. "I clipped him and spun out. We restarted last and made it up to 15th in the final seven laps or so. That hurt us because otherwise we'd have been better in event points."

Dover's best night came on Friday when he rallied from ninth to sixth in a heat race, won a qualifier and maneuvered from 16th to sixth in the A Main.

"With six laps to go there was a yellow and we were in 11th," he said. "I pulled the wing back and went right to the middle of the track where nobody was running. We drove right up through there and got a great finish."

Dover ranked eighth out of the 70-plus drivers following the two preliminary nights, which locked him into the eighth starting spot for Saturday's main event. Unfortunately, the gear broke near the midpoint of the race as Dover was contending for a top five.

"I was really pleased with the weekend," he said. "I learned some stuff as far as shocks go before we went to Lucas Oil Speedway and I was able to take that information with me. I think that's what made a big difference in our weekend was the things I've learned on shocks as well as the setup. It's working wherever we go.

"It was a lot of fun racing with Rick and Chris this year. They want to go out and do as good as we can, but to make sure we have fun. I felt like the more the season went on the better we got and we continued to have fun."

Dover turns his attention to a race this Saturday at U.S. 36 Raceway in Osborn, Mo., with the Carpet Land Nebraska 360 Sprints and ASCS Warrior Region. He ranks second in the Nebraska 360 Sprints championship standings entering the season finale.

Blake Hahn Takes Over ASCS National Points Lead With Hockett/McMillin Memorial Triumph

Bryan Hulbert - WHEATLAND, Mo. (September 24, 2019) Entering the weekend with a 148-point deficit, Blake Hahn put together a dream weekend with two victories in three nights to gain a 20-point advantage following the 9th annual Hockett/McMillin Memorial with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network. Picking up the win in Thursday's preliminary A-Feature, Hahn capped the weekend with the $10,000 score in Saturday's Hockett/McMillin Memorial finale. "Everything came together better than I could have ever hoped. I've always wanted to win at Lucas Oil Speedway. We've been close before and always has something get in the way, but to get two wins and be the champion of the Hockett/McMillin, It was a dream come true, and having my family, especially my Nan and Papa there, it made the win really special for me. I can't thank them enough for what they've done to get me here. My Dad, and my Crew Chief, Dalton. He was spot on all weekend." explained Blake. Asked about having the point's lead again, Blake replied, "Leading the points, it's important to the overall picture, but we're just focused on winning races and finishing well the rest of the season. The points will take care of themselves as long as we do our job." Battling with Josh Baughman for the win on Thursday night, Hahn was able to rebound from being passed twice by the No. 17. "The track was interesting on Thursday. I didn't realize the line moved down on three and four until Josh showed me the line, and when I tried to run down there, it missed it and let him get by before we had the restart and it was the opposite in one and two where I was able to get the lead back. Later in traffic, I just had to get to the bottom before he did, and it worked out where I was able to keep him from getting in front of me." Having to come through a B-Feature on Friday, Hahn spent the first half of the A-Feature struggling before the track finally came to the car. From 16th on Lap 15, Blake ended up working his way through the field to seventh. "I was worried at the start of that feature. I knew I had to get moving or I'd knock myself out of being locked in for Saturday, but once the track loosened up a little bit, the car really started working. Restarts were a big help too where I was able to get two and three spots at a time." Earning the right of the front row, Blake was stalked for the first part of the race by Josh Baughman before the No. 17 saw his night cut short. Working into traffic, Hahn had to move around the track while Dylan Westbrook came charging after him. Hitting the slick through turn four on Lap 35, Hahn shot up the track and made contact with Westbrook; nearly taking both drivers out of contention as Westbrook went upside down. "I thought I was going over when I hit Dylan. I just gunned the throttle and tried to keep the car upright. When I drove off, I was relieved, but I felt bad for getting into him. He was coming, and I never want to get into anyone and mess up their car. I just got into the slick at the bottom trying to get around a slower car, and the car just shot up the track." Back to green with Mark Smith giving chase, Blake was able to pull away for the win. "I don't think I took a breath the last five laps. I was worried about the car from the crash, and knowing I had Mark behind me on the restart, I knew if I slipped on time, it was his race to win. I'm not normally out of breath after a race, and I could hardly catch mine until I was out of the car." Weather permitting, the next event for Blake is the Fall Haul at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa on September 27 and 28. Beyond that, Hahn is gearing up to defend his win at the COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tire at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark. on October 4 and 5. The 2019 season is Blake Hahn's 17th year of racing. Starting in Jr. Sprints at the Tulsa Shootout, Hahn has progressed through the ranks with over 90 victories across Micros, Midgets, and Sprint Cars.

Hafertepe Rebuilding Following Rough Hockett/McMillin Memorial Outing

Bryan Hulbert - WHEATLAND, Mo. (September 24, 2019) Following a tough weekend at the 9th annual Hockett/McMillin Memorial with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. is taking time to rebuild his Hills Racing Team No. 15h.
"We had a lot of speed, that was clear. We were probably one of the fastest cars all weekend but never could put together a full night," stated Sam.
Clipping an infield tire during Thursday's A-Feature on Lap 17 restart that resulted in damage to the front suspension, the damage was too much to make it out of the work area before the field went back to green.
"Thursday, it looked like we were really going to get up through there and just clipped the tire and that really hurt us bad but I felt like if we came back on Friday with a good showing, we could get ourselves locked in, and that's what we were hoping to do."
With his Friday going according to plan, Hafertepe working through his Heat and Qualifier to start third in the A-Feature. However, going into the first set of turns, Hafertepe's night turned around with the No. 15h ending up on the hook in a four-car pileup.
"We had a really good start and I thought man if I can get the lead right here, we'll just run off and win this thing, but I drove it in too deep and got sideways. Just trying to get up there and messed up."
Relegated to a Qualifier on Saturday, two hours of rain prior to the start of the night's races made for a tough track. Getting into the cushion in turn three, Sam's weekend took another hard hit into the wall in turn four. Getting the car back together, Hafertepe rallied through the B-Feature. Despite a bent car, he came up one spot shy of transferring.
"We pulled down a new car for Saturday, and going into turn three in the Qualifier, the car just biked up on me and hit the wall so we just patched it back together for the 'B' and took a shot at it and we're pretty good. I felt like we were one of the only guys really moving forward in any of the races and just came up a corner short."
A hit in two ways, Hafertepe entered the weekend with a 148-point advantage over Blake Hahn in the championship standings with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, but now trails by 20 going into the final six events of the season. Even with the setback, Sam is still very confident in his team and their chance at a fourth consecutive title.
Originally slated to be in action this weekend at Eldora Speedway, getting cars and equipment rebuilt will determine the next outing before hitting the John Christner Trucking Fall Fling presented by James Hodge Ford at Creek County Speedway on October 11 and 12. In a wild battle one year ago with Sean McClelland; a late-race pass by Hafertepe grabbed the win for Heidbreder Foundation No. 15h in the star-studded event.

TMAC TUESDAY-Deuces Wild at Jackson Motorplex

PETERSEN MEDIA: Getting back to racing action over the weekend, Terry McCarl and Destiny Motorsports had a great showing at Jackson Motorplex as TMAC picked up second place finishes both Friday and Saturday night.

“Doug and my guys gave me a great car all weekend long,” McCarl said. “Since they redid Jackson, that’s the best I have ever felt there. Friday night, it was a really good race, and I thought we were going to get Balog but we came up short, and Saturday night we ran second to my son, Austin, which made running second a little easier.”

Timing the MonDak Portables/Ft Union Supply and Trading/TheSnowPlow.com machine in fourth fastest on Friday night, the Altoona, IA driver would pick up a fourth place finish in his heat race and move straight into the feature event.

Finding himself in the seventh starting position for the feature, McCarl would go to work on the bottom side of the speedway in the race’s opening laps. Able to get off the bottom, McCarl would bide his time as he waited for the car to burn the fuel load off and ‘free’ up.

Working his way through the Top-5, TMAC would get into second with just a handful of laps to go as he closed in on Bill Balog. A yellow flag on the last lap would put McCarl right on Balog’s rear bumper for the Green-White-Checkered finish.

In an exciting two laps, TMAC would get around Balog to t
