THE “SMOKE SHOW” HOLLEY AMONG SANDUSKY ENTRANTS

July16, 2024 – Holly, Michigan – Rick Holley hasn’t gotten off to the start that he would have liked this season. But despite his early season disappointment, he has a lot going for him. He currently sits in third place in the Must See Racing Sprint Series Presented by Perfit-Parts point standings and just became a grandfather to baby girl Francis. When Holley returns to racing action Wednesday night July 24 at Sandusky Speedway for the next stop on the MSR 2024 title chase he will be in a completely different mindset. He finds himself in the thick of the MSR title chase and now carries the title of grandpa.

“It’s different now being a grandpa” explains Holley. “I don’t get over enough, of course. It’s amazing how 7 pounds can change your perspective on family and life. You’ll probably see her at the track later this summer” Holley proudly stated.

In the meantime, it’s back to business for the “Smoke Show”. Currently sitting third in points, he hopes to move up a position or two before the season ends.

One of the highlights for Holley in 2023 was setting quick time at Owosso Speedway in Ovid, Michigan both times MSR competed there. With new pavement, Holley’s driving style mixed well with the new asphalt. He ended up with the all-time track record at the second event there over Labor Day Weekend. He thought he had a chance to lower it even more before the rains came during the June 22 event just a few weeks ago.

“We’re close right now. The last race at Owosso kinda messed me up. I went out and scuffed some new tires in the final practice before qualifying. Then the rain came, and they used our times from the second practice to set the feature lineup. In the first practice I was second quick. The car in practice felt better than what it did in the fall. I think I had something for them. I’m looking forward to getting back there in the fall”.

Holley relies on his son Chance to do the setups. The duo seems to click everywhere they go and are always competitive.

“A few years ago, I was trying to do the set-up and everything else. One day I told Chance I’m turning all the set-up stuff over to you. You take care of that, and manage that, and I’m gonna drive the car. We talk about everything, but I usually just go with what he suggests. We’ve been good the past couple years”.

Holley is selling his own t-shirts this year with a picture of his car throwing an enormous amount of smoke. The shirts are courtesy of the nickname “Smoke Show” given to him by Joe Liguori.

“I was wearing a t-shirt with a picture of my car with smoke coming off the right rear. Joe Liguori saw it and said, ‘That’s quiet the smoke show’. It’s stuck ever since” laughs Holley.

“I like Sandusky a lot. It’s a track where you must pick your battles. You must decide if you’re gonna drive it hard and stay on the outside or finesse the car and be on the bottom. But I like our chances there. I’m going for a top three, but a win would be great” concluded Holley.

In other Must See Racing news longtime series car owner John Reiser will be returning to competition with driver Adam Biltz at the July 24 Sandusky Speedway event. The Maxima Racing Oils Midwest Lights Series will also be in action giving fans a double-header of winged sprint car action.

Big Game Motorsports and Gravel Solid Throughout Week in Wisconsin

Inside Line Promotions - WILMOT, Wis. (July 15, 2024) - Big Game Motorsports driver David Gravel recorded a trio of top-six finishes last week during three World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series races in Wisconsin.

The action started on Wednesday at Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver Dam, where Gravel qualified fourth quickest and won a heat race. He placed third in the dash before ending the night sixth in the Jim "JB" Boyd Memorial main event.

"The first night everything was going well," he said. "We had a little malfunction and the left rear shock broke. Running sixth with three shocks is a good run, but obviously we weren't happy because we should have been on the podium that night."

The team ventured to Wilmot Raceway on Friday for the first night of the World of Outlaws Federated Auto Parts Larry Hillerud Memorial Badger 40. Gravel timed in ninth quickest overall before he advanced from third to second place in a heat race to make the dash. He picked up a pair of positions in the dash to finish fourth before gaining a spot in the A Main.

"We didn't qualify exactly where we wanted to be, but we were able to race into the dash through the heat race," he said. "We had an okay dash draw and gained a row there. In the feature I didn't get a good start and was stuck on the outside and lost two spots. I had to race my butt off to get to third. I felt we were maybe good enough to run second, but ran out of time."

The weekend wrapped up on Saturday at Wilmot Raceway, where Gravel qualified third quickest and won a heat race. He pulled the highest number - eight - during the dash draw.

"We qualified well and heat raced well, but it was a terrible dash draw and we only gained one spot," he said. "I'd say we were our worst all week in that feature. We clawed our way to fifth. If we're not happy with a fifth place, that shows where we are at as a team."

Gravel currently owns a 58-point lead in the World of Outlaws championship standings.

This week features five straight races in Ohio starting on Tuesday at Attica Raceway Park in Attica for the Ohio Logistics Brad Doty Classic. Eldora Speedway near Rossburg is the site of the following four nights with the $100,000-to-win Joker's Jackpot featuring the Kubota High Limit Racing on Wednesday and Thursday followed by the $175,000-to-win Kings Royal featuring the World of Outlaws on Friday and Saturday.

"You just break up the week by the events," Gravel said. "We start with Attica. That's the hardest part of the week is racing at Attica, driving several hours and then getting set up at Eldora. We'll get through the Brad Doty Classic first and then it's separate events with Wednesday lining up Thursday. Really you're just chasing money Wednesday to Saturday. You try to set yourself up to win these races. A lot of obstacles get thrown at you. You just have to try to stay focused at the task at hand."

July 10 - Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver Dam, Wis. - Qualifying: 4; Heat race: 1 (1); Dash: 3 (2); Feature: 6 (3).

Starks Produces Runner-Up Result at Skagit Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - ALGER, Wash. (July 15, 2024) - Trey Starks captured his division-best sixth top five of the season last Saturday at Skagit Speedway.

A runner-up result marked the 11 th total podium outing of the season for Starks and his first in the last five races.

"It was nice to get a clean night with no crashes or any other misfortune," he said. "After what we went through it's nice to not be rebuilding a car on our wash day. That's definitely a positive."

Starks qualified second quickest to open the program before he charged from fourth to win a heat race. That earned the pole position for the main event.

"It was on the fence, like Tulare style," he said. "It was awesome, but our package isn't tailored to that and I'm not the best at that. They had reworked the track just a little before we went out for our feature. The first couple of laps it was hard to tell where the top groove was. We got into traffic and I felt we were setting a good pace. There were a couple of mistakes I made in traffic that hurt our momentum. That allowed Colby (Thornhill) to get close. I made another split-second decision that slowed us down going into turn one. He was coming with a big head of steam and threw a close, but perfect slider on us to come right in front of my nose. As we came back around off turn four and came across the start/finish line the caution came out so that gave him a clear track.

"I knew the only way I was going to beat him was to find something different. I rolled my wing all the way to the back trying to make anything other than the top work. We were really close, but weren't quite there. We raced hard for a few restarts and came up about a car length short at the finish. It's tough to lead like that and not win the race, but I think we saw the type of race track we'll see at the High Limit shows and we have a lot of ideas of what we can do."

Starks led the first 17 laps of the race before he ended second. He remains on top of the Skagit Speedway championship standings by 50 points.

Starks will take this weekend off before returning to Skagit Speedway on July 26-27 for the Bob's Burgers & Brew Summer Nationals.

July 13 - Skagit Speedway in Alger, Wash. - Qualifying: 2; Heat race: 1 (4); Feature: 2 (1).

Kaleb Johnson Earns Top Five at Jackson, Knoxville and Huset's During Stout Weekend; New Opportunity Arrives This Week

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (July 15, 2024) - Kaleb Johnson is coming off the best weekend of his season as he powered to a pair of podiums and a top-five result at three different tracks.

Johnson placed second at Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn., with the Midwest Sprint Touring Series 410 Sprint Cars on Friday before he tied a season-best fourth-place finish at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday. The weekend concluded on Sunday with a third-place run at Huset's Speedway.

"I felt it went very well," he said. "We had a little luck play into our favor on Sunday, but we grinded and made it through. We had a good night at Jackson and also at Knoxville. All in all, it was a good weekend."

Johnson kicked off the busy weekend on Friday at Jackson Motorplex, where he advanced from eighth to fourth place in a heat race and from eighth to sixth place in the dash. He continued to move forward in the A Main as he tied a season-best performance with a runner-up showing.

"With no qualifying and starting last in the heat race I knew it wouldn't be easy," he said. "We made it to fourth in the heat race. We redrew the eight for the dash and advanced a couple of spots. We got the car a lot better for the feature. I was able to drive by cars and get up to second. I was very happy with the result, especially considering how we started the night."

Johnson piloted a car for Dennis Gainey on Saturday at Knoxville Raceway. He qualified second quickest and gained a spot in a heat race to place fifth. That lined Johnson up on the inside of the second row in the main event.

"I was supposed to start third, but the leader jumped the start so I moved up," he said. "I stayed behind (Aaron) Reutzel for most of the race. I was a little too patient with a lapped car and it ended up costing me at the end, but I felt it was a big improvement."

Johnson ventured to Huset's Speedway on Sunday. He timed in seventh quickest and ended second in a heat race to advance into the feature redraw. Johnson pulled the No. 5 to start the A Main on the inside of the third row. He battled for a top five throughout much of the race before being involved in a late-race incident on a restart. As the field bunched up and two drivers collided in front of him, Johnson appeared to be trapped in the melee, but he was able to get away and keep his running position. Despite a damaged nose wing, he finished the race in third place to extend his lead in the championship standings.

"It was a positive," he said. "With how things shook out, the car was in one piece. I held my own and stayed consistent and tried to stay out of wrecks. At the end of the day, we finished third so that's what matters."

Johnson plans to compete at Knoxville Raceway this Saturday. He'll make his debut with Aaron Long in the 410ci winged sprint car division and will race for Gainey in the 360ci winged sprint car division.

In addition to Saturday's event, Johnson will drive for Long at the Capitani Classic as well as the Knoxville Nationals next month.

"I'm thankful and excited for the opportunity," he said. "I'm looking forward to kicking things off in Aaron's car. Hopefully we can make some good laps and get everything rolling well going into the Capitani Classic and 410 Nationals."

QUICK RESULTS -

July 12 - Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn. - Heat race: 4 (8); Dash: 6 (8); Feature: 2 (6).

July 13 - Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa - Qualifying: 2; Heat race: 5 (6); Feature: 4 (3).

Hollingsworth Finishes Second

In Gene Nolen Classic at Anderson

ANDERSON, Ind., July 15 — Shane Hollingsworth of Lafayette, Ind., put the famous yellow Nolen Racing No. 20 asphalt sprint car on the podium in second place Saturday night in the third annual CB Fabricating Gene Nolen Classic presented by “The Herald Bulletin” at Anderson Speedway. The 100-lap race honoring Nolen Racing’s founder is a crown jewel of the 500 Sprint Car Tour, and it was streamed live worldwide on Dirtvision.

Kody Swanson was going for his third Gene Nolen Classic victory in a row, but unfortunately his Nolen Racing No. 4 sponsored by KECO Coatings was involved in a racing incident while running fourth and he had to pull into the infield off Turn 1 with only eight laps complete. He ended up 18th in the final rundown.

Earlier in the day Swanson, a native of Kingsburg, Calif., who now lives in Indianapolis, was the fastest qualifier with a lap in 11.232 seconds for the quarter-mile track. Bobby Santos III was second-fastest in qualifying, just 0.140 off Swanson’s time. Hollingsworth was the third-fastest qualifier with a time of 11.391.

However, with the series’ inversion Shane Butler, who was the fifth-fastest qualifier, got the pole with Santos in second, Hollingsworth in third, and Swanson in fourth for the start.

Butler led the first 14 laps until he also pulled off the track due to a mechanical issue. That gave the point to Santos, who led the rest of the race with Hollingsworth right behind him. Hollingsworth ran nose to tail behind Santos, just milliseconds behind, until Santos was able to gain more of an advantage in the last 10 laps. Santos’ margin of victory was 1.268 seconds.

In addition to trying his best to pass Santos, Hollingsworth had to fend off the challenges of Jackson Macenko, who finished third, just 0.482 behind Hollingsworth. Billy Wease placed fourth, and Joe Liguori rounded out the top five.

Wease set the fastest lap of the race and Macenko was second in that category, underscoring the challenge Hollingsworth was dealing with in order to keep the youngster behind him. Hollingsworth set the third-fastest lap of the race. Those three were all faster than the winner, who set the fourth-fastest lap. Even though Swanson only ran eight laps, he still set the sixth-fastest race lap.

With 25 laps complete Hollingsworth was only 0.254 behind Santos, and at the halfway point he was 0.173 behind. Hollingsworth was only 0.227 behind Santos on lap 75. With just 10 laps remaining Santos’ edge was still only 0.338.

“I used my stuff up with about 15 laps to go; I was spinning my tires too much,” Hollingsworth told the Dirtvision audience. “But finishing on the frontstretch is always good. We gave it all we had, and I was glad to come home second for Nolen Racing.”

“I got my left-front [tire] into Shane’s rear bumper when the top three all stacked up, and it essentially folded the front axle up, breaking a radius rod on each side to hold it in place,” Swanson said. “I felt awful for the team. They brought a great car, and I hate that I wasn’t able to race it to the finish for them.”

The Nolen Racing cars ruled the practice sessions. Swanson was fastest in the first practice session with a time of 11.422, while Hollingsworth was fastest in the second practice session with a time of 11.414.

Dakota Albright Qualifies for First Career Sprint Car Feature As Spencer Motorsports Returns to Track

PETERSEN MEDIA- Dealing with engine woes since the first of June, Dakota Albright climbed back aboard the Spencer Motorsports winged 360 on Saturday night in Placerville, CA and was able to lock into his first career feature event.

“It felt great to get back in the 360ci, but it took me some time to get reacclimated,” Albright said. “I didn’t do a great job in time trials or the heat race, but I did a better job in the ‘B’, and put us in the feature which is a great feeling. I have a lot to clean up, but this was a good return to the car.”

Timing in 21st fastest in qualifying time trials, Albright finished sixth in his heat race aboard the Thompson’s Family of Dealerships/Sacramento Battery/Morgan precession Roofing backed No. 34.

Relegated to the semi, Albright looked forward to getting more laps in the car, but wanted to make sure he was able to transfer to the feature event. Settling into second as the race came to life, Albright felt comfortable as he ran solidly inside a transfer position.

Battling some brake issues late in the race, Albright gave up the second position, but a third place finish was good enough to extend his night and lock him into his first career Winged 360ci 25-lap feature event.

Making some adjustments before the feature event, and getting his brake issue resolved, Albright made the call for the 25-lap finale on a very slick Placerville Speedway surface.

Able to search around the track and try a few things from the tail of the field, the Waterford, CA driver wanted to make sure to keep his nose clean and avoid any trouble ahead of him.

Doing just that, he went on to cap the night off with a 16th place finish.

“It was great to get into the feature, and make a lot of laps,” Albright added. “Rick Spencer, Dan Lind, and everyone on this team has worked very hard to get the car back out, and I need to get a little more aggressive on my end, but I was happy to make the ‘A’.”

Dakota Albright and Spencer Motorsports would like to thank Thompson’s Family of Dealerships, Sacramento Battery, Morgan Precision Roofing, Nor Cal Gun Vault, Quality Telecom Consultants, Johnson and Matos CPA’s, Romey’s Window Cleaning, Angel’s Heavy Haul, Amsoil, King Racing Products, NGK, CSI Shocks, Oval Chassis Research, Roza Motorsports, Gladden Racing, Nutcher Milk, Wild West Commodities, Greenwood Machine, and Casey White Cosmetic Tattoos for their support in 2024.

Braden Chiaramonte Set to Resume SCCT Campaign as Speedweek Kicks Off Tonight

PETERSEN MEDIA: Winning the most recent Sprint Car Challenge Tour event at Antioch Speedway just one week ago, Braden Chiaramonte brings the series point lead into a grueling six-race Speedweek that kicks off tonight in Cottage Grove, OR.

The El Cajon, CA youngster heads into the big week of action fresh off of a ninth place finish at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night with the Tiner Hirst Enterprise team.

During Saturday night’s action, Chiaramonte kicked the night off by timing the THE/Hepfner Racing Products/Eagle Motorsports Inc. backed No. 94TH entry in 14th fastest in qualifying time trials.

Making big changes to his entry prior to the heat race, Chiaramonte looked very sporty when his heat came to life. Quickly moving into third, the youngster was able to work the top and bottom grooves around the ¼ mile bullring as he looked for a way into second.

Settling for third, Chiaramonte was locked into the feature event as he rolled off the starting grid from the outside of the fourth row. On a very slick surface, Chiaramonte battled hard with some of the track’s veteran drivers as he kept his car inside the top-10 during the duration of the race.

While unable to mount a charge toward the front, he was able to record a ninth place finish as he now turns his attention to hitting some unfamiliar tracks during a three-race stretch in Oregon.

The six-race swing comes to life tonight as the Sprint Car Challenge Tour heads to Cottage Grove, OR before hitting Coos Bay Speedway in Coos Bay, OR on Tuesday night, and Douglas County Speedway in Roseburg, OR on Wednesday night. Thursday-Saturday the action returns to CA as he will hit Marysville Raceway, Silver Dollar Speedway, and Placerville Speedway.

The Tiner Hirst Enterprise Racing team would like to thank Tiner Hirst Enterprise, Hepfner Racing Products, EMI, Fisher Racing Engines, System 1, Larry Davis Farms, and Slade Shocks for their continued support.

ON TAP: Chiaramonte and Tiner Hirst Enterprise are now set for SCCT Speedweek. All six-nights of action can be viewed on CaliDirt.TV.

Andy Forsberg 2nd at Placerville Speedway to Unofficially Open Speedweek 2024

PETERSEN MEDIA: While SCCT Speedweek officially comes to life tonight in Cottage Grove, OR, Andy Forsberg got the party started unofficially on Saturday night at Placerville Speedway where he tallied a second place finish.

“We had a pretty big week ahead, and Saturday really kicked the mayhem off,” Andy Forsberg said. “To start a busy week out with a second place finish in really good for our team, but I really wanted to win the box of Kings Meat that was up for grabs to the winner.”

Forsberg got the night kicked off in grand fashion as he earned quick time honors aboard the Meridian Cameras/PCH/Oroville Tax backed No. 92 mount.

Needing to just transfer through his heat race to make the redraw, the Auburn, CA driver settled into fourth when the race went green and that is where he finished.

Locking into the feature, Forsberg was also set for the redraw, where the five pill placed him in third row for of the 25-lap feature event.

When the feature event came to life, Forsberg rode around in fourth for the early stanzas of the event as much of the field worked the high side of the speedway.

Moving into third on the 11th lap, a caution flag two laps later lined him up behind Tony Gomes and Shane Hopkins. When the action resumed, Forsberg overtook Hopkins for second, and began chasing after Gomes who ran comfortably up front.

With Gomes setting a torrid pace, Forsberg slowly inched closer as he chased after him and also dealt with slower traffic. The final laps saw Forsberg close in drastically on Gomes and it looked like an opportunity might present itself for a last lap pass.

As the duo took the white flag, and lapped car got over the cushion in front of them and as he wildly returned to the racing surface, both drivers took evasive action to avoid and it allowed Gomes to beat him to the checkered flag as he tallied a second place finish at the stripe.

“We have been rolling along well as of late, and the last thing we wanted to do was tear any equipment up, so it was good for us overall,” Forsberg added.

Andy Forsberg and PHR Racing would like to thank Meridian Cameras, Pacific Highway Rentals, Oroville Tax, Wilkie Masonry, Western Traffic Supply, PitStopUSA, Red Line Oil, FK Rod Ends, Autism Awareness, Parking and Transportation Group, Western Featherlite, 1st Vanguard, Highway Specialty Co., and KBJ Catering for their continued support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-23, Wins-4, Top 5’s-12, Top 10’s-13

ON TAP: Forsberg will be back in action tonight (July 15) in Cottage Grove, OR to open SCCT Speedweek. Tuesday night will be in Coos Bay, OR, Weds night in Roseburg, OR, Thursday night in Marysville, CA, Friday night in Chico, CA and Saturday night in Placerville, CA.

Tony Gomes Powers to Win at Placerville Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA- After showcasing a ton of speed at Placerville Speedway during the two-races over the 4th of July Weekend, Tony Gomes and C&M Motorsports continued to show case speed on Saturday night as the Modesto, CA driver scored his first feature event win of the season.

“Saturday was a great night, and after having a lot of speed lately, we did what we needed to do and scored a big win in front of a lot of friends and sponsors,” Tony Gomes said.

The night kicked off for Gomes as he timed the Lund Construction/Anrak/Sam Rhodes backed No. 7c in fifth fastest in time trials which was good enough to put him on the front row of his heat race.

Needing the win for the all-important redraw spot, Gomes hammered the throttle when the green flag flew and jumped into the early lead. Leading from flag to flag, Gomes’ win locked him into the feature event as well as the redraw where the two-pill put him on the front row of the feature event.

On a very slick Placerville Speedway surface, Gomes got into a hotly contested battle with Shane Hopkins on the opening lap, and while Hopkins led officially, a couple of exchanged sliders ultimately saw Gomes take over the spot on the second lap.

Out in front, Gomes set a very solid pace as he worked the tricky cushion to perfection and opened a comfortable lead over Andy Forsberg who had moved into second.

Traffic in the closing laps allowed Forsberg to close in on Gomes and he made sure not to make any mistakes in the closing laps of the race. The most tense moment of the night came on the white flag lap as another car slipped over the cushion in turn two and was air born in front of the leaders as he re-entered the surface.

Able to avoid any trouble, Gomes was able to go on and claim the popular in on King’s Meats night at the speedway.

“It feels great to get a win for Cody and Mandi,” Gomes said. “They have done so much for me this year, but for many years in my career. I also want to thank Cody and Bobby for working so hard to keep us fast, and a special thank you to all of our great partners who keep us out and racing.”

The C&M Motorsports team would like to thank Lund Construction, Anrak, Sam Rhodes, Alturas Tires, Swartz Diesel, Adrian Blanco Jewelry, Kings Meats, American Paving Systems, PT Shocks, Creason Enterprises, and all of their product sponsors for their continued support.

ON TAP: C&M Motorsports and Tony Gomes will be at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night.

PETERSEN MEDIA: Following a break from racing action, Joel Myers Jr and Hayward Motorsports returned to action over the weekend, and after rain cancelled Friday’s program at Circle City Speedway, Myers Jr scored a runner up finish with the FAST Series on Saturday night at Paragon Speedway.

“It was great to get back in action with Hayward Motorsports over the weekend,” Joel Myers Jr said. “We have been gaining speed night in and night out, so to run second and get on the podium is great.”

With 20 cars on hand, Myers Jr earned fast time honors in his qualifying group aboard the Shiti Coolers/Gilstrap Motors backed No. 19. Myers Jr time was also good enough to give him fast time honors overall in his first appearance at the track.

Advancing from fourth to second in his heat race, Myers Jr was all set for the 30-lap feature event where he rolled off the starting grid from the fifth starting position.

Powering his way into third when the race came to life, the 18-year-old who hails from Sebastopol, CA slipped back to fourth briefly in a close knit battle, but settled back into third on the seventh lap.

Continuing to hold down the final spot on the podium, Myers Jr continued to have a very strong showing on the unfamiliar setting as he closed in on the lead duo. Moving into second on the 20th lap, Myers Jr continued to battle traffic as he chased after the race lead.

Holding on to second, Myers closed his night out with a second-place finish as he now gets ready to run his first ever King’s Royal.

“It was a great way to get back together and get ready for some big races,” Joel Myers Jr noted. I am excited for how our schedule is shaping up and I am excited to compete in some big races for the first time.”

Estenson Posts Top 10s at Jackson Motorplex and Huset's Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (July 15, 2024) - Tim Estenson captured a pair of top-10 results last weekend.

The action began on Friday at Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn., where Estenson used a late restart to power from third to win a Midwest Sprint Touring Series 410 Sprint Cars heat race. That made him the high-points driver and earned a spot in the dash. Estenson continued forward in the dash as he maneuvered from sixth to fourth place.

"I think it was really good, especially at a place where I've struggled at," he said. "I was lucky to get that yellow in the heat race and I was able to move around and get momentum. The car was really good all night. I think the biggest thing that helped was that I was able to capitalize on the starts in the heat race and dash.

"In the feature I stayed up top too long. They had reworked the track a bit and the bottom turned out to be the best place early. I dropped back to eighth or ninth and worked my way back to sixth."

Estenson's sixth-place result marked his 10 th top 10 of the season. It also propelled him into the lead in the Midwest Sprint Touring Series 410 Sprint Cars championship standings.

The weekend wrapped up on Sunday at Huset's Speedway, where Estenson qualified eighth quickest. A fourth-place finish in a heat race ranked him ninth in overall points to miss the feature redraw by only one position. That started him on the inside of the fifth row in the main event.

"I watched the first heat race and the bottom was where it was at," he said. "It shifted by my heat race. I didn't get the best start and lost some momentum. I tried to stick the bottom and it didn't work out. I was playing catch up from there.

"In the feature we were decent at the beginning, but struggled as the race went on. I was trying everything, slowing up my entry, trying to drive it harder, moving my wing back. It was one of those deals where it was disappointing, but at the same time we had some luck to move up to second in points."

The 10th-place result helped guide Estenson into second place in the Huset's Speedway championship standings. His six top 10s at the track this season rank second most.

Estenson plans to race this Thursday at Norman County Raceway in Ada, Minn., and Friday and Saturday at River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, N.D., with the Buffalo Wild Wings Northern Outlaw Sprint Association and the Bumper to Bumper IRA Outlaw Sprint Series.

"Those races are close to home so it'll be fun," he said. "We're working hard in the shop to get prepared for this three-day weekend and hopefully we can capitalize with some wins."

QUICK RESULTS -

July 12 - Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn. - Heat race: 1 (3); Dash: 4 (6); Feature: 6 (4).

July 14 - Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D. - Qualifying: 8; Heat race: 4 (2); Feature: 10 (9).

22 races, 2 wins, 4 top fives, 11 top 10s, 17 top 15s, 18 top 20s

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (July 15, 2024) – Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing put on a Wisconsin clinic during their recent week of competition, not only accumulating three consecutive top-ten results, finishing no worse than eighth overall, but earning a $12,000 victory in the process, that of which taking place in Wilmot Raceway’s Larry Hillerud Memorial Badger 40 finale on Saturday, July 13.

As hinted, the victory, Schatz’ third of the 2024 season and second-ever during Badger 40 competition, was earned in fantastic fashion, taking command over Buddy Kofoid on lap ten before driving off to a seven second advantage. Impressive enough, Schatz’ final margin of victory was accomplished in the final 18 circuits, as caution flags negated an already established command of six seconds leading up to the aforementioned yellow.

Adding to Schatz’ Wilmot stat card, the Fargo, North Dakota, native opened Badger 40 action with a hard charging performance on Friday, July 12, advancing eight positions from 14th to finish sixth. The eventual Hard Charger Award was the sixth of 2024 for Donny Schatz and TSR – a series-leading achievement.

“Last night was really trying, but that’s what makes nights like this so much more important,” Schatz said on Saturday. “The guys spent a lot of time today digging and changing things. It was a whole different race car tonight. Hats off to them – Scuba (Steve Swenson), Todd (Devnich), and Dauson (Heitritter). There’s a lot of communication there, and that’s what it takes to be in this situation.

“We won the Larry Hillerud Memorial, so that’s pretty damn cool. Larry was a North Dakota boy with tons of passion for this sport. I’m sure he’s up there arguing with my dad about something. I’m pretty honored to win this tonight.”

Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing opened their Wisconsin road trip with an eighth-place score in Wednesday’s Jim “JB” Boyd Memorial at Beaver Dam Raceway; they started seventh.

Thiel quick with Outlaws at Wilmot; Will work toward crown in IRA King of the Wings trio
Jul 15, 2024

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (July 15, 2024) – It was a hard-fought battle in the Badger State for Scotty Thiel and Team 73, joining the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series in a trio of starts at Beaver Dam Raceway (July 10) and Wilmot Raceway (July 12-13), respectively. But when the dust finally settled, the recent IRA Outlaw Sprint Series winner found himself with three main event starts in three tries, highlighting all outcomes with an 11th-place score at Wimot on Friday, July 12.

Thiel, ace of the Team 73, Gibbsville Cheese, Professional Plating Inc, Ludwig & Sons Trucking, Total Restoration Services, Scott Thiel Builders, Lift Pro, Schmidts Landscaping, Complete Water, Iron Buffalo Saloon, GRP Motorsports, Lake Home Retreats, Elliott Family, Diamond Pools, No. 73 sprint car, battled ahead five spots to earn the aforementioned 11th-place finish, earning his place in the Badger 40 opener with a fourth-place score during heat race competition.

As noted, Thiel was three-for-three in main event appearances, finishing 16th with the Greatest Show On Dirt at Beaver Dam on Wednesday, and 24th in the Badger 40 finale at Wilmot on Saturday. Deceiving in some respect, Thiel’s Beaver Dam result was impressive, battling back to 16th after restarting at the tail due to a spin.

“We’re always striving for more, but we managed to put together some solid runs against the Outlaws and we’re proud of that. Advancing as far as we did at Wilmot on Friday is something to be proud of. I think we were even better than where we finished, we just needed to capitalize earlier on in the program,” Thiel explained. “Hats off to this team. Racing at that level can be pretty demanding, but they never give up. We have another big weekend ahead, so we’ll head to Minnesota and North Dakota with the goal to win.”

ON DECK:
Scotty Thiel and Team 73 will continue their 2024 campaign with three nights of Buffalo Wild Wings King of the Wings action on Thursday through Saturday, July 18-20. Featuring the IRA Outlaw Sprint Series, action will begin at Norman County Raceway in Ada, Minnesota, on Thursday, followed by back-to-back nights at River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, North Dakota, on Friday and Saturday.

We enjoy getting out on the road when the opportunity allows, but there’s no place like home, and we have some pretty big events close to home this week,” Greg Wilson said. “The Brad Doty Classic and Kings Royal are very special to us and there’s nothing we want more than to represent our partners well on the big stage.

Jul 15, 2024

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

MITCHELLVILLE, Iowa (July 15, 2024) – It was another productive weekend in the Upper Midwest for Chase Randall and TKS Motorsports, concluding their Minnesota and Iowa double with a pair of top-tens in three main event starts, all of which highlighted with a runner-up score at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday, July 13. Activating his weekend agenda in the Land of 10,000 Lakes, Randall finished eighth at the state-of-the-art Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minnesota, on Friday, July 12; he commenced action from row six.

Randall, ace of Troy Renfro’s Albaugh – Your Alternative, Iowa Barnstormers, Des Moines Industrial Products, Jersey Freeze Ice Cream, AL Driveline, TJ Forged, No. 2KS sprint car, earned his runner-up performance during Knoxville’s 360 main event.

For his efforts, the “Quickest Chicken” out of Waco, Texas, earned the evening’s Hard Charger Award – all of which accomplished in a non-stop 18-lapper.

Unfortunately, Randall’s effort in Knoxville Raceway’s 410 main event was cut short, scored 21st due to mechanical failure after making contact with the inside berm.

“We’re happy with our weekend results and we’re proud of what Chase has been able to do. We probably should have been three for three in the top-ten category, but mistakes and issues happen, so we’ll put that behind us and move forward,” Troy Renfro expressed. “We have a massive week ahead. All eyes will be on Eldora Speedway and we’re excited to be a part of such an historic event.”

JEFF DYER IS AWAITING SURGERY AFTER A CRASH IN SATURDAY’S USAC/CRA MAIN EVENT AT PERRIS

(Yucca Valley, CA, July 14, 2024) Veteran Southern California sprint car driver Jeff Dyer is currently in the hospital waiting for surgery after a crash in Saturday’s Avanti Windows and Doors USAC/CRA Series main event at Perris Auto Speedway. The popular driver suffered a broken right humorous bone in the grinding pile-up that occurred on lap 25 of the main event. In addition to the broken bone, he also suffered a concussion and will be confined to the hospital for a week.

The incident happened when another driver’s steering box malfunctioned, and his car pounded the turn one crash wall. When he came off the wall, the driver began to flip down the track. Dyer, with nowhere to go, got clobbered by the flipping car, and they hit cage to cage.

“I just saw him jumping the cushion in turn one,” Dyer said from his bed at the Riverside University Hospital. “I tried to turn down, but he started to flip. I do not remember anything after that. When I hit him, we hit cage to cage. Our cage got pushed in pretty good. We think that is when I broke my arm as my seat got hit really hard. When that happened, it knocked me out and it knocked the wind out of me. We think my foot stayed on the throttle.”

What happened next was something Dyer is probably glad he cannot remember. His 900-horsepower car blasted head-on into the turn-two crash wall and then into one of the track’s sponsor billboards before tumbling back down to earth. Safety crews were on the scene in a flash, and he quickly regained consciousness. He remembers the safety crew telling him to “shut the fuel off.” At that point, he did not realize he was hurt until he tried to get out of the car, and his “arm was not working.” He then remained in the car for quite some time as the EMTs wanted to ensure his arm was stabilized before they removed him for the trip to the hospital.

“I did not even know that happened until someone told me,” he said when reminded he clobbered the crashwall and the billboard. “I just thought I hit Logan and came to a stop. I did not know all of that other $#@? happened until afterward.”

Dyer, a Yucca Valley, California resident, is resting kind of uncomfortably as he waits for Monday’s surgery.

“I am pretty sore,” he said. “Of course my arm hurts really bad. It was a clean break all the way through. So they are going to put some rods and pins in it and put me back together like Humpty Dumpty.”

Another injury in the crash is the car. Dyer's teenage racing son Seth reported that he thinks the car is junk. However, the engine is fine, as it did not get over-revved in the crash.

There has been a big outpouring of best wishes and prayers for Dyer on the Internet, and he appreciates that.

“That is really cool, man,” he said from the hospital. “I appreciate that and thank them very much. I heard a lot of people came down to the pit afterward and helped everyone load everything up. So, that was pretty cool, too. Thanks to those people as well.”

While his arm is broken and needs fixing, one thing that has remained intact is Dyer’s tremendous sense of humor.

“I am glad I could make the 9.8 scale,” he laughed when told that’s what judges would have scored the crash. “That is nice. As long as I entertained, that is what we are there to do.”

In 2024, the following marketing partners will help keep the Dyers on track. Dependable Machine Inc., Haircuts By Susie, Jobu Racing, LBA Investigations, Straight Time Stirrups, Justice Brothers, Fonseca Racing, Specialty Fasteners, and Blud Racing Lubricants. If you would like to be a part of Dyer Motorsports in 2024, call (760) 550-7237 or send an email to mailto:dyermotorsports4@gmail.com.

Jeff is racing in memory of his grandparents, Glenn, and Beverly Sels, throughout the 2024 season.

SEXTON GATLIN RACING READY FOR PERRIS AFTER ROUGH NIGHT AT SANTA MARIA

(Lakeside, CA, July 11, 2024) After getting hit by what seemed like everything but the track ambulance at Santa Maria, Sexton Gatlin Racing drivers Brent Sexton and his son Grant have dusted themselves off, repaired their damaged cars, and are ready for Saturday’s Avanti Windows and Doors USAC/CRA Sprint Car race at Perris Auto Speedway. Gates at the famous Riverside County half-mile oval will open at 5:00 p.m., and the first exciting race will take the green flag at 7:00.

The Sexton Gatlin Racing rig made the nearly 300-mile trip north to Santa Maria with three cars inside. One each for Brent and Grant to race in the USAC/CRA Series and a lightning sprint for Lakeside, California flat track motorcycle racer Braydin Collie to use in the companion California Lightning Sprint Car Series race.

Brent and Grant were matched up against 24 other top-of-the-line USAC/CRA cars. 2023 Rookie of the Year Grant recorded the best lap of the duo when he shot around the banked 1/3 mile oval in 14.140. That was good enough for the 14th best time of the night. Brent, a 52-year-old who is running for Rookie of the Year this season, stopped the clocks at 14.907 in his ex-Rico Abreu 360. That placed him 19th fastest of the 26.

The top five finishers in each 10-lap heat went straight to the 30-lap main event. Drivers finishing sixth on back would have to run the B main. Brent steered the #44 to a seventh-place finish in his heat, meaning he would have extra work in front of him to try and get to the main. Grant, who will turn 20 on Tuesday, fared better when he finished fifth and booked his ticket for the 30-lapper.

Brent, who was born in Tennessee, had his work cut out for him in the B main. The three-time lightning sprint car champion was lined up against nine other drivers. The first seven finishers would make it into the A main. In baseball vernacular, the drivers finishing eighth through 10th would hit the showers. The veteran performed well and finished third. That allowed him to join Grant in the A main.

Unfortunately, things unraveled in a hurry in the A for both drivers. Grant started 14th, and Brent began in 18th. The chaos started at the beginning of the A main when a car got sideways at the start, leaving Brent nowhere to go. The veteran tipped over. The result was the left rear rim was bent into the bleeder valve. Initially, the crew could not get the wheel nut off until they used a jack to split the wheel apart. Amazingly, they finally got the job done and changed the left rear shock as well, and he was ready for the restart.

Coming off his series-best sixth-place finish at Perris a couple of weeks earlier, Grant got caught up in someone else’s mess on lap two and flipped. The car suffered costly damage, including a broken Jacob’s ladder, exhaust, shocks, and right rear wheel. His #22 was too damaged to continue, and he ended his race with a very frustrating 20th-place finish.

With Grant out, SGR fans focused on Brent, who raced for the duration of the 30-lap event and finished 15th.

Coming into Saturday’s sixth series race of 2024 at Perris, Grant is tied for 14th in the championship standings. One spot and six points behind his youngest offspring is Brent.

Collie made his lightning sprint car debut in the fast Sexton Gatlin Racing #44, normally steered by Brent. To say it was an impressive debut is a vast understatement. Being his first time in a lightning sprint, it was no surprise that the flat tracker qualified last in the 14-car field. After all, he had never raced a lightning sprint prior. He also placed last in his heat. However, in the main event, he nearly captured the “Hard Charger” award, going from the 13th starting spot to finish sixth.

Adult tickets for Saturday’s race are $30.00. Seniors 65 and over get in for $25.00. For kids 6-12, it is only $5.00, and children 5 and under are free. The fairgrounds charge $10.00 for parking. Advance tickets are available at https://www.tix.com/ticket-sales/pas/7/event/1366778 or by calling 1-800-595-4849. For fans who do not wish to purchase tickets in advance, there will be plenty available for everyone at the ticket window on Saturday night. Perris Auto Speedway is located on the Lake Perris Fairgrounds at 18700 Lake Perris Drive in the City of Perris. The track website is https://santamariaspeedway.net/.

Sexton Gatlin Racing would like to thank the following companies for making the 2024 season possible. East County Electric Works, Keys Brothers, BR Motorsports, Maxima Oil, Automated Interiors, Sexton Fire Protection, BK Wings, Troy Dirt.

JEFF DYER GETS HIS FIRST WIN OF THE YEAR AT THE SANTA MARIA SPEEDWAY

(Yucca Valley, CA, June 27, 2024) Jeff Dyer finally shook the giant gorilla off his back and won his first main event of the season by dominating last Saturday night’s California Lightning Sprint Car Series main event at the Santa Maria Speedway. Dyer’s 17-year-old son Seth ended up 12th in the same main event after being knocked out by a broken injector wire. In the companion Avanti Windows and Doors USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series Doug Fort Memorial 30-lap main event, California Highway Patrol Officer Jeff got beaten around like a pinata but still came home 14th.

Sporting new Power Performance Protection Engines, things started out well enough for the Dyer Motorsports duo in qualifying with the CLS. Jeff was the second quickest of the fourteen cars on hand at 14.314. Seth’s best time was 14.782. That ended up being the sixth fastest of the night.

On Saturday, Seth was the first member of the Yucca Valley, California-based team to contest a race at the 60-year-old track. The teen started on the front and finished third in the first heat. Moments later, the patriarch of the family, Jeff, took to the track. He started on the outside of the front row and advanced forward to finish second.

Jeff, who has a Santa Maria winner’s trophy from 2019 sitting on his mantle, started on the outside of the front row and stormed into the lead at the start of the main event. Even at that early point in the race, it was evident that he was far faster than all the other cars as he quickly pulled away from the competition. Seth, who came into the night 4th in the championship point standings, was coming from the inside of the second row in the 25-lapper. The talented teen ran in the top five the whole time he was on the track. However, that time ended 17 laps before the checkered flag ended the race. That is when the injector wire broke and saddled in with a frustrating 12th-place finish.

Out front, Jeff’s only worries came in the form of two yellow flags during the race. However, those worries turned out to be minor because the two times the green flag came back out, he simply motored away from the pack. At the end of the 25th and final lap, he had a full straightaway advantage over his closest pursuer.

“We have had our struggles this year,” the happy CHP officer told the large enthusiastic crowd after his win. “We have been super-fast. It is the first year we have had where we keep blowing engines. We haven’t changed anything. It held together tonight. The track was technical and heavy. I have always had a little trouble freeing my cars up to run the top. They do not really run too good in the heavy stuff. It was kind of slick down below and that is what it stayed at. When you are leading, you never move from what you are doing until they try to pass you. I knew that if I was fast enough they were going to have to wind them up.”

Dyer’s performance in the Cal Sun Racing/Dyer Motorsports #39 in the USAC/CRA portion of the program, got off to a good start when he qualified 10th fastest in the 26-car field. A fourth-place finish in his 10-lap heat race gave him one of the five direct transfers to the main event. The veteran started the main in the 10th spot. With the car working as well, a top-10 finish was certainly in the offing for the night. Unfortunately, he got clobbered. The incident cracked the housing on his rear end, bent a shock, flattened the left rear tire, and bent the steering wheel (another car’s tire entered the cockpit and tagged the steering wheel). Despite the damage, his crew got the car back on the track for the restart, and he finished the race in 14th place.

Adult tickets for Saturday’s race are $30.00. Seniors 65 and over get in for $25.00. For kids 6-12, it is only $5.00, and children 5 and under are free. The fairgrounds charge $10.00 for parking. Advance tickets are available at https://www.tix.com/ticket-sales/pas/7/event/1366778 or by calling 1-800-595-4849. For fans who do not wish to purchase tickets in advance, there will be plenty available for everyone at the ticket window on Saturday night. Perris Auto Speedway is located on the Lake Perris Fairgrounds at 18700 Lake Perris Drive in the City of Perris. The track website is https://santamariaspeedway.net/.

Seth will return to action with his dad when the California Lightning Sprint Cars return to the Santa Maria Speedway on July 27th for round #2 of the CLS/BCRA Civil War Series.

In 2024, the following marketing partners will help keep the Dyers on track. Dependable Machine Inc., Haircuts By Susie, Jobu Racing, LBA Investigations, Straight Time Stirrups, Justice Brothers, Fonseca Racing, Specialty Fasteners, and Blud Racing Lubricants.

EDDIE TAFOYA JR. RETURNS TO ACTION SATURDAY WITH THE USAC/CRA SPRINT CARS AT PERRIS

(Chino, CA, July 11, 2024) After a two-week break in his busy racing schedule, Eddie Tafoya Jr. will be back in the gorgeous, family-owned #51T for this weekend’s Avanti Windows and Doors USAC/CRA Sprint Car race at Perris Auto Speedway. The track’s 2018 Young Gun Sprint Car Series champion will enter the battleground eighth in USAC/CRA points.

The Chino Hills, California resident, who turned 27 on Wednesday, comes into Saturday’s Perris race after a busy month of June that saw him compete seven times. Four of the races were in his native California, and three were in Indiana, a hotbed of open-wheel racing. One other race that he was in the “Hoosier State” for was rained out.

The likable driver's best June result came in the Ultimate Sprint Car Series presented by Inland Rigging main event at the Santa Maria Speedway on June 15th when he placed second. That event was sandwiched in between USAC/CRA races at Kevin Harvick’s Kern County Raceway on June 8th and Perris on the 22nd. He placed fourth at Kern and came from the back to finish eighth at Perris.

Earlier in the month of June, Tafoya finished 23rd when something broke in his steering while leading the field into turn one at the USCS race at Ventura on the 1st. He then jetted to Indiana and finished eighth in the A main at the Lawrenceburg Speedway on the fifth and 12th at the Lincoln Park Speedway 24 hours later. He wrapped up his Indiana journey with a sixth-place finish in the B main at Bloomington on the seventh before flying back to California for the Kern race 24 hours later.

Unlike June, when Tafoya originally had eight race dates on his schedule, there are only two scheduled thus far in July. The first is this Saturday’s USAC/CRA affair at Perris. He will follow that up when the USCS returns to Ventura on the 20th.

If you are coming to Saturday’s race, be sure to stop by Eddie’s pit and wish him a belated Happy Birthday.

Spectator gates will open at 5:00 p.m. at Perris on Saturday, and the first race will take the green flag at 7:00. Adult tickets for Saturday’s race are $30.00. Seniors 65 and over get in for $25.00. For kids 6-12, it is only $5.00, and children 5 and under are free. The fairgrounds charge $10.00 for parking. Advance tickets are available at https://www.tix.com/ticket-sales/pas/7/event/1366778 or by calling 1-800-595-4849. For fans who do not wish to purchase tickets in advance, there will be plenty available for everyone at the ticket window on Saturday night.

Perris Auto Speedway is located on the Lake Perris Fairgrounds at 18700 Lake Perris Drive in the City of Perris. The track website is https://santamariaspeedway.net/.

Friendly Tafoya is always happy to meet the fans in the pits after every race. He will sign autographs, pose for photos, and sell his beautiful 2024 team shirts. For fans who cannot attend the races, the team shirts are available at www.specialty-fasteners.com.

Fans can follow Tafoya on Instagram @eddietafoya51.

Tafoya and the #51T team would like to thank Specialty Fasteners, Inland Rigging, BR Motorsports, King Racing Products, Gasper Transportation, CMI Precision Machining, Owen’s Insurance Services, Keen Concrete, DRC Chassis, and Rider Racing Engines for supporting its racing program.

OPEN WHEEL SHOWDOWN ANNOUNCES THIRD LOCATION
Davey Hamilton Jr. has announced there will be an addition to his Open Wheel Showdown events. In addition to the 2024 Las Vegas and Irwindale events, the Children’s Dream Fund Open Wheel Showdown will race at Citrus County Speedway in Inverness, Florida on February 27th - March 1, 2025.
This stop on the Open Wheel Showdown tour will feature only winged pavement sprint cars, and not national midgets and super modifieds like previous Open Wheel Showdown events. Hamilton also indicated the Children’s Dream Fund Open Wheel Showdown is potentially the start of a traveling series of winged pavement sprint cars across the country in 2025.
“This is great for our sport,” Hamilton said. “JJ (Dutton) called me and told me his ideas, and it was all about putting the logistics together to bring our partners and staff in for this. This is not only good for Open Wheel Showdown, but it’s exciting to do it same weekend as the INDYCAR Series race at St. Petersburg, so we can have those guys come out and support what we’re doing. My goal is to see Open Wheel Showdown grow into a national tour in 2025 and this is a great kick off to it.”
Purse and event format will be announced soon. Plans include a Thursday practice night followed by two complete nights of racing. If a driver can win both nights, a bonus will be awarded and will also be announced soon.
Registration for the event will start after the 2024 finale of Open Wheel Showdown. The Las Vegas Open Wheel Showdown will be November 14-16, 2024, followed by Open Wheel Showdown Los Angeles on November 22-24, 2024 at Irwindale Speedway.
This Children’s Dream Fund Open Wheel Showdown is a collaboration between JJ Dutton, Citrus County Speedway owner William Ray, and Davey Hamilton Jr.
“Citrus County Speedway could never be prouder to host the Children’s Dream Fund Open Wheel Showdown,” explains William Ray. “We’ve come a long way in a short time. From a helmet walk during the Sandi DeCaire Classic 41, to the first Children’s Dream Fund 50 with the Southern Sprint Car Shootout.”
“Hopefully the awareness of the Children’s Dream Fund Organization has opened a lot of new doors for the less fortunate and families in need. The Children’s Dream Fund is an amazing organization and has helped many families. With JJ Dutton and Davey Hamilton Jr. at the wheel, you can only be successful.”
“To the drivers, teams, and fans, I want to say thank you for your participation in last year’s Children’s Dream Fund 50,” Dutton said. “We want to say thanks to Davey Hamilton, Jr. and Citrus County Speedway for working together to make the event possible in 2025.”
“This race is very dear to my heart. My daughter had been in a fight for her life the last three years. Through the tough times of her treatment, the Children’s Dream Fund reached out to me and my family and just wanted to help put a smile on Sadie‘s face to pick her up. They sent us to Las Vegas to meet Gordon Ramsay. If you think last year was big, I promise you: you haven’t seen nothing yet!”
Rules, race format, and officiating will all be done by Open Wheel Showdown. Tires will be available on site through Open Wheel Showdowns partner Hoosier Racing Tire. The event will be broadcast on Speed Sport.

 

SANDUSKY UP NEXT FOR MUST SEE RACING

July 11, 2024 – Holly, Michigan – After two failed attempts to get the Must See Racing event at Sandusky (Ohio) Speedway held, the Must See Racing Sprint Series Presented by Perfit-Parts will attempt to get the event off the ground Wednesday August 24.

Two previously scheduled MSR events were cancelled this spring due to saturated grounds. The area received record amounts of rain for the month of April. Now both the MSR National Series and the Maxima Racing Oils Midwest Lights Series will join forces for a mid-week twin-bill of winged sprint car racing. This will be the first time the MSR National Series has competed at Sandusky Speedway for the first time since August 25, 2019.

The MSR Wednesday night event will kick off a busy weekend that will conclude Friday July 26 and Saturday July 27 with the annual Hy-Miler Super Modified Nationals. ISMA-MSS Super Modifieds will roll into town to conclude one of the most iconic open wheel weekends in Northern Ohio.

The early expected entry list for this event is now over 20 cars and may be one of the strongest fields seen in a while. Eight states and Canada make up the expected entry list.

Current MSR champion Joe Liguori headlines a list of expected entrants that also includes former MSR champions Charlie Schultz, Jimmy McCune, and defending series champion Jason Blonde.

Seven-time USAC Silver Crown champion and three-time Little 500 champion Kody Swanson is expected to compete in his first winged pavement sprint car race since 2015.
Other drivers expected to compete include Adam Biltz, Jeff Bloom, Shane Butler, Tom Geren, Davey Hamilton Jr., Rick Holley, John Inman, Bobby Komisarski, Ryan Litt, Kevin Mingus, Tommy Nichols, Johnny Petrozelle, Dorman Snyder, Joe Speakman, and Macy Williams.

The expected list also includes Bobby Santos III who won the first two MSR events of the season including the $5,000 to win event at Lancaster, New York in June. Santos is also coming off a $10,000 victory this past Saturday night at Dacono, Colorado. He will be looking to add even more money to his bank account.

MSR officials also announced today that the Midwest Lights Series have been invited to participate in Friday night’s event along with the ISMA-MSS Super Modifieds. The Midwest Lights Series now competes two times in three days. It will be a busy three days for the Midwest Lights Series to say the least. A full field of Midwest Lights Series competitors is expected both days.

Hartlaub’s Breakout Performance: Five Top-Ten Finishes in PA Speedweek, 410 Rookie Earns Top-Five in Points
 

Selinsgrove, PA – July 10, 2024

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Mgmt

Consider these facts. Before the 2024 Pennsylvania Speedweek, Kody Hartlaub had fewer than 30 races under his belt in a winged 410 sprint car. Nearly a dozen of those were before this season and had been scattered randomly, providing no real consistent learning opportunity.

Hartlaub’s 410 starts had all been made at four different tracks. On just six occasions the New Berlin, PA driver raced a 410 sprint car on back-to-back nights and never more than that.

On June 29th, Hartlaub embarked on ten straight nights of racing known as Pennsylvania Speedweek. Oh and, did we mention he has a day job? It would be a grind like he had never faced before and it would include three tracks he had never raced before at any level.

A rookie can’t become a veteran in ten days but it is certainly possible for a rookie to learn a ton and take a giant step forward, assuming he or she is up to the task. It certainly appears Hartlaub was up to it.

OPENING VOLLEY

The opening weekend of the 2024 edition of PA Speedweek was scheduled for the three tracks where Hartlaub had the most experience: Williams Grove, Lincoln, and BAPS Motor Speedways. That was a plus for the Littlestown, PA native.

On opening night, Hartlaub posted the 5th quickest time in Group B and a 2nd place finish in his heat race, providing himself with a starting spot inside the top ten. He slid backward a little but still posted a very respectable 16th-place finish.

Hartlaub noted before Speedweek that he was still learning the intense pace of a 410 feature and acknowledged how even the smallest mistake can cost a driver multiple positions. It was obvious as Speedweek unfolded that held true on a few occasions for him.

After Saturday night’s action was rained out at Lincoln Speedway, the series moved to BAPS Motor Speedway where Hartlaub grabbed everyone’s attention by ripping off the fastest lap of the night in qualifying. He kept the momentum up with a 3rd place finish in his heat race and a top-ten finish in the A-main.

Monday night at Lincoln Speedway, his home track, Hartlaub showed he had the experience he needed there to compete. He qualified 5th quick, won his heat race, and finished 3rd in the feature.

UNFAMILIAR TERRITORY

At this point in the week, Hartlaub was 6th in points and it appeared he would be a factor in PA Speedweek, but would the next phase of the series on unfamiliar turf tell a different story for the 410 rookie?

Hartlaub seemed to answer that question quickly Tuesday night at Grandview Speedway when he clocked in 6th quickest overall and claimed a runner-up finish in his heat race. He didn’t falter in the A-main either, bringing home a 9th-place finish. It might have been the night some folks, if they weren’t already, became believers.

Port Royal Speedway on Wednesday took a little wind out of Hartlaub’s sails. Although he had a few laps under his belt at ‘The Speed Palace’, they weren’t much to go on and they came in different cars. He qualified 14th in Group B and finished 8th in his heat, both low points of the week thus far.

The team corrected a left front shock issue after the heat race which made the car better for the B-main but it wasn’t enough and Hartlaub’s night ended in 8th place in the consolation race.

Thursday was a new day. Hartlaub shook off the disappointing night and rolled south to Hagerstown, MD for night seven of PA Speedweek. Again he faced a new track and again he impressed immediately.

Hartlaub qualified 4th quickest overall and took the win in his heat race over Anthony Macri who started alongside the Trone No.39 on the front row.

The qualifying efforts earned the 5th starting spot for Hartlaub in the 30-lap finale. Although he lost a few spots, an 8th-place finish was a great result under the circumstances.

The run also put Hartlaub in 5th in the PA Speedweek point standings with three races remaining.

BRING IT HOME

Back on more familiar turf Friday night a Williams Grove, Hartlaub turned in a respectable lap that put him 8th fastest in Group B. A 4th place finish in his heat race put him 15th in the starting lineup for the $20,000-to-win Mitch Smith Memorial.

Hartlaub dropped back as far as 17th in the early going but rebounded for a 14th-place finish.

The remaining two races at Port Royal and Selinsgrove Speedways would test Hartlaub to hang on to a top-five points position. As documented, Port Royal was the lone blemish on his week thus far and Selinsgrove would be another brand-new facility for him.

Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway, Hartlaub showed improvement over his previous outing there by clicking off the 7th-best lap in Group A qualifying to earn the 3rd starting spot in his heat race. Unfortunately, things didn’t go as planned in that qualifying race and he slid backwards to a 7th place finish.

Hartlaub recovered by transferring to the feature through the B-main with a 4th-place finish. After starting 24th, he went the full 30 laps to record a 20th-place finish. It was a small victory for Hartlaub, who had never been able to get a full night under his belt at the Juniata County Fairgrounds oval.

By the time the series reached Sunday’s finale at Selinsgrove Speedway, there was probably no reason for anyone to be surprised when Hartlaub qualified 2nd quick overall in his first competitive laps ever on the track. There’s a chance there were raised eyebrows though when he backed it up by winning his heat race.

In the redraw, Hartlaub pulled the pole. He raced inside the top five until nearly the halfway mark, then slipped a couple of spots to wind up 8th in the final rundown. It was his 5th top-ten finish in nine Speedweek races and it was his 8th top-ten finish in his last twelve races in the Trone Outdoor No.39.

Hartlaub earned 5th in the final series points. He also earned a lot of respect and numerous fans in the process.

It’s going to be a fun second half of 2024 to watch and no one will be surprised when Hartlaub parks the No.39 in victory lane. The only question is when and where will it happen.

“Pennsylvania Speedweek was ten days of pure hard work and dedication to a sport we all love. I had the opportunity to race at three new tracks and keep learning this 410 thing. Overall I consider this a great week with 1 quick time, 3 heat race wins, and 5 top-ten feature finishes.”, Hartlaub commented.

“With this being my rookie 410 season there is always room for improvement but I am super proud to finish 5th overall in Speedweek points. I want to thank John Trone, Kevin Frey, Barry Jacobs, Kevin And Stacy Hartlaub, Pat Brewer, Audrey Hartlaub, Austin Funk, Justin Reece, Patrick McCole, Mike McDonald, Jimmy O’Brien, Jessica O’Brien, and everyone else who helped this entire week.”

“I also want to send a huge thank you to our partners who make this all possible: Trone Outdoor, J Fuels, Brewer Home Improvements, Moose Blocks, Bigham Appraisals, T&N Solutions and Griffith Plumbing Services. My partners have stuck with me through this transition and I greatly appreciate that.”

UP NEXT

Hartlaub and the Trone Outdoor No.39 team will return to their regular weekly cadence this week, competing at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night July 12th and Lincoln Speedway Saturday night, July 13th.

FLOWDYNAMICS SPRINT CAR TEAM RACING ON ITS HOME TURF, PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY, THIS SATURDAY

(Ontario, CA, July 10, 2024) The Flowdynamics Racing Team, consisting of Matt McCarthy and Logan Williams, gets back in action this Saturday, July 13th, when the West Coast’s premiere traditional sprint car series, the Avanti Windows and Doors USAC/CRA Sprint Cars, returns to famous Perris Auto Speedway. It will be race #10 of 23 on the 20-year-old association's schedule.

Williams, who lives in Yorba Linda, California, was in action last Saturday night when the series made its first stop at Santa Maria Speedway since August 6, 2022. The race was the third on the 60-year-old 1/3 mile banked clay oval since the middle of last month. A tough field of 26 cars and a large, enthusiastic crowd showed up for a night of exciting 410 sprint car racing.


Williams kicked off his night by recording the 11th fastest time in the talent-laden field with a lap of 14.061. That put him on the inside of the second row in his 10-lap heat race, where he was matched up against eight other drivers, including his two older siblings. The 2014 USAC/CRA Rookie of the Year flew into the lead on the back straight on lap three and went on to score his initial heat victory of the year by more than a full straightaway.

At the first USAC/CRA main event at Santa Maria in 703 days, Williams was coming from the 11th spot in his handsome #5W Flowdynamics sprint car. It was a technical “Cowboy Up” track that was capable of biting at any time. Williams kept his nose clean, stayed out of trouble, and came home in the eighth position.

The result saw Williams record his eighth top-ten finish in nine starts in 2024. In what has been his breakout season, he remains in fourth place in the championship standings, only eight points in arrears to his older brother Austin, who sits third. Additionally, entering Saturday’s race, he is only 45 markers out of first.

For McCarthy, who thus far has confined his racing to Perris this year, Saturday will be his sixth start of the season. He has been fast every night and has won heat races on three of the five appearances. However, he has been the victim of being in the wrong place at the wrong time later in the shows. His best finish of 2024 came on April 27th when he started 14th and drove forward to finish sixth in the main event. While he is not concerned with points this season, he goes into Saturday’s race 18th in the standings.

Williams is not the only one in the Flowdynamics team in contention for a championship. Car owners John and Tammy McCarthy are currently third in owner points. Like Williams, they are only 45 points out of first place.

Adult tickets for Saturday’s race are $30.00. Seniors 65 and over get in for $25.00. For kids 6-12, it is only $5.00, and children 5 and under are free. The fairgrounds charge $10.00 for parking. Advance tickets are available at https://www.tix.com/ticket-sales/pas/7/event/1366778 or by calling 1-800-595-4849. For fans who do not wish to purchase tickets in advance, there will be plenty available for everyone at the ticket window on Saturday night. Perris Auto Speedway is located on the Lake Perris Fairgrounds at 18700 Lake Perris Drive in the City of Perris. The track website is https://santamariaspeedway.net/.

Whenever you get the chance to meet the Flowdynamics drivers in person, be sure to visit them in the pits. They will be glad to sign your autographs, and each of them will have their fine-looking team shirts available.

If you or your company would like to be a part of one of the West Coast’s most prominent sprint car teams in the 2024 season, please contact John McCarthy at 909 930-5522 or mailto:john@flodyinc.com.

McCarthy and Williams would like to thank the following sponsors for making the 2023 season possible. Flowdynamics Inc., PurgePlugs.com, Cal Therm Mechanical Insulators, JFK Design Build, So Cal Racing Fuel, and Full Throttle Lift.

SCCT 360s primed to tackle Western Sprint Speedweek on July 15th-20th

By Gary Thomas

Cottage Grove, Oregon…For the first time in its history the Elk Grove Ford Sprint Car Challenge Tour readies for Western Sprint Speedweek this coming Monday through Saturday, showcasing six straight nights of racing at six different venues.

Everything kicks off at Cottage Grove Speedway in Cottage Grove, Oregon this coming Monday July 15th. The popular quarter mile bullring launches the biggest week of racing yet for the SCCT 360s since debuting in 2017. Pit meeting on opening night will occur at 5pm, with cars on track at 5:45.

Tuesday July 16th then brings the Sprint Car Challenge Tour to Coos Bay Speedway, followed by the Douglas County Dirt Track in Roseburg, Oregon on Wednesday July 17th. Speedweek continues south after that, heading back into California for a night of racing at Yreka Speedway on Thursday July 18th.

A certain highlight of Speedweek takes place on Friday July 19th when SCCT invades Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico for the 11th annual Tyler Wolf Memorial.

When 20-year-old Tyler Wolf lost his life at Calistoga Speedway in 2012 it was one of the darkest days in recent memory for the California racing scene. The Redding native had captured the Silver Dollar Speedway track title one year prior and was well liked throughout the pit area.

The event in his memory continues to be one of the special shows each season at Silver Dollar Speedway.

SCCT Western Sprint Speedweek all comes to a climax at the El Dorado County Fairgrounds based Placerville Speedway on Saturday July 20th.

The overall SCCT Speedweek champion will take home $3,000 as part of a $6,000 total point fund. The runner up nets $2,000, while third place will claim $1,000.

With the $500 Shop Kyle Larson Bonus Award automatically added in during Speedweek, each main event will pay a minimum of $3,000-to-win. The 24-car feature also dishes out a minimum of $400-to-start every night.

The most recent Elk Grove Ford Sprint Car Challenge Tour event saw El Cajon youngster Braden Chiaramonte pick up a thrilling victory in Antioch on June 15th. By doing so, the 17-year-old sits atop the SCCT standings going into Speedweek.

Hanford’s Michael Faccinto, Auburn’s Andy Forsberg, Aromas’ Justin Sanders and Livermore’s Travis Labat round out the top-five through the first six events of the season.

Additional drivers looking to run the full SCCT Speedweek include Placerville’s Shane Hopkins, Lincoln’s Tanner Carrick, Oakley’s Dylan Bloomfield, Oregon racer Tyler Thompson, Arizona driver Corbin Rueschenberg, Fresno’s Mariah Ede, Roseville’s Colby Copeland, Wilton’s Ashlyn Rodriguez, Yuba City’s Seth Standley, Windsor’s John Clarke and others.

410 DOUBLE FEATURES
This Saturday at Skagit Speedway

By Erik List
Racing returns to Skagit Speedway this Saturday, July 13th, as we welcome back the KarMart 410 Sprint Cars, Sportsman Sprint Cars, and Northwest Focus Midgets.
This week sees the return of the 410s at Skagit Speedway, and this weekend, they will run not one but two features. The KarMart 410 Sprint Cars will make-up their race from June 29th, we lost that race due to weather. The make-up race will take place after the scheduled July 13th 410 A Feature. We will line the cars up in the order they were running on the track when the rain hit, only allowing cars that were on the track at that time to continue. We will then finish the remaining laps that were left.
Trey Starks leads the 410s points race with 819 total points. Starks has amassed three wins in eight features and five top fives. Second is Jason Solwold, who has 765 points, four top fives, and six top 10s in eight features. Colby Thornhill sits third with 755 points, one win, three top fives, and seven top tens in eight features as well.

SCCT SPEEDWEEK SCHEDULE UPDATE FOR JULY 18

Marysville, CA…Sprint Car Challenge Tour officials have announced an update to the SCCT Western Sprint Speedweek schedule.

Due to fires in the area, Yreka Speedway has been forced to cancel their scheduled Thursday July 18th Speedweek stop. The track is still able to hold this weekend’s Sport Mod event however, once that is completed, a full fire camp will move in, making it unable to operate the dirt track.

Thanks to Promoter Dennis Gage the Thursday July 18th date will now be held at Marysville Raceway. It marks the second appearance of the season at the track for the Elk Grove Ford Sprint Car Challenge Tour. Pit gate will open at 2pm, with front gate opening at 5.

“Yreka Speedway was looking forward to hosting the Sprint Car Challenge Tour for Speedweek, but due to the fires up there it just won’t be possible,” commented SCCT President Scott Russell. “I want to send a big thank you to Dennis Gage for being kind enough to let us run Marysville Raceway in its place and keep Speedweek in its original format with six races at six different tracks.”

The overall SCCT Speedweek champion will continue to take home $3,000 as part of a $6,000 total point fund. The runner up nets $2,000, while third place will claim $1,000. Everything kicks off on Monday July 15th at Cottage Grove Speedway in Cottage Grove, Oregon.

With the $500 Shop Kyle Larson Bonus Award automatically added in during Speedweek, each main event will pay a minimum of $3,000-to-win. The 24-car feature also dishes out a minimum of $400-to-start every night.

Clinton County Speedway Announces 2024 Limited Edition Beer Can

Mill Hall, PA – The Clinton County Speedway has partnered again with local brewer, Lee Powers and his Floating Feathers Brewing Company of Mill Hall to produce its own beer.

“For the second year, we are releasing a beer that features the winner of our annual 410 Sprint Car race, the Phil Walter Classic, which is coming up in August,” says Jason McCahan, speedway promoter. “Dale Blaney of Hartford, OH won last year’s racing event, so he has earned his place on our beer can.”

The beer is a 16-ounce pilsner. The can features a checkered flag background with the Clinton County Speedway and Floating Feathers Brewing Company logos as well as a picture of Blaney’s #32 410 Sprint Car.

“Working with Lee and his staff, we came up with the idea of a special beer for our largest race of the season,” says McCahan. “Last year we featured Billy Dietrich of Aspers, PA who won our race in 2022 and it was a huge hit with our fans and sold out quickly.”

Floating Feathers Brewing Company is producing 750 cans for this year’s event. Fans can pre-order the beer at https://forms.office.com/r/rvvt3JXpfE. The link is also available on the speedway’s Facebook page. Fans who pre-order the beer will be able to pick it up at the Floating Feather’s beer truck during the Phil Walter Classic on Saturday, August 10th. Cans of the limited edition beer are being sold as a single can or in a four pack.

“We are very excited at Floating Feathers to provide locally made beers and ciders with local ingredients for our local speedway,” says Lee Powers, “Giving back proceeds of every beer to improve our local track is important to us. Come out and enjoy the fast-paced action of the Phil Walter Classic with a Floating Feathers brewski.”

The 410 sprint cars are featured at the speedway twice this season. The first 410 Sprint Car show is on Friday, July 19th paying $4,000 to win. The Phil Walter Classic for the 410 Sprint cars is on Saturday, August 10th, paying $6,300 to win.

The Clinton County Speedway is a 1/3-mile clay oval located in central Pennsylvania offering weekly short track racing. For more information and a complete list of events, visit the speedway’s website at clintoncountyspeedway.com or follow them on Facebook.

Floating Feathers Brewing Company is a local family owned and operated brewery that prides itself on making the best quality beers, ciders, hard lemonades, seltzers and sodas with as many local ingredients as possible.

Penn Ohio Pro Stocks Invade Tri City Raceway Park

(Franklin, PA July 10, 2024): This Sunday, July 14, the spotlight will shine on the Pro Stock division at the Tri City Raceway Park. The region’s top runners will be on hand, as the event will be part of the Penn Ohio Pro Stock Series. Of course, the track’s regulars will be there representing the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks.

“The Pro Stock class has long been part of the tradition at Tri City Raceway Park, and we are proud to have this battle among the best in Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio at our track,” said the new owner Josh Shiffer.

“And, last week’s feature was a great example of the competitiveness that the Pro Stocks bring,” he added. Rod Laskey scored his first win of the season by holding off a strong challenge from Jackson Humanic, who was subbing for Josh Seippel. Seippel will be back from vacation in time for the invasion of the Penn Ohio series, in which he also competes. And, we know that Humanic will be hungry for a win after his strong finish last week.

Another track regular expected to be on hand will be Bobby Whitling. The “Seneca Slider” missed the last race due to a fuel pump failure detected at his garage. Tim Bish, a multi-time winner at Tri City this season, may return as well. He has been sidelined by an engine failure.

There will be plenty other talented drivers also carrying the Tri City flag, too. Pat Fielding, Doug Iorio, II, Russ Coyne, Jason Kimmy, Aaron Smith, Andrew Hammond, Jake Whitling, Charlie McMillen, Matt Bernard, and Hunter Exley are some whose names will be familiar to the Tri City fans.

The invaders will include Chris Schneider, who has already been a winner at Tri City this year. Tyler Dietz, Joey Zambotti, Chase Lambert, Brandon Connor, Jason Fosnaught, Brett Hutira, and Tommy Dembowski are among the Penn Ohio Series regulars who are expected as well.

This will be a unique opportunity for the Pro Stock fans to see many of the top stars on the track together, as the Sunday race date eliminates schedule conflicts for so many of the competitors.

But, there will be three other classes in action also. The Krill Recycling 410 Sprint Cars will be on the card, along with the 4 Your Car Connection RUSH Sprints. And, the 21st Century Energy Group 358 Modifieds will be back after their brief hiatus.

On Sunday evening, Matt Farnham and Michael Bauer provided a last lap thrill in the 410 Sprint Car ranks, while A.J. Flick was closing in on them both! John Mollick picked up his second win of the season with young Blaze Myers right behind him in the Rush Sprinters.

While many of his competitors were enjoying the week off from racing, 358 Modified point leader Chad Reitz was at Tri City helping his friend, Bob Felmlee. Felmlee is the points leader in the Krill Recycling 410 Sprints. Reitz will be ready with his Ford powered Modified, the only Blue Oval among the Bowtie Brigade. Eric Gabany will probably be at the controls of Steve Slater’s car once again, as medical issues have kept Slater out of the seat for the last couple of weeks. Hayden and Jimmy Holden, Kyle Fink, Lenny Liebold, III, Makayla Shannon, Frank Guidace, Eric Beggs, Troy McGregor, and many others will be looking for their first wins this season.

Regular event ticket pricing will apply for this exciting event. That means adult admission will be $15. Seniors (ages 62 and up), students (ages 11 through 16), and military will be $13, all with proper identification. The children (ages 10 and under) will be admitted for free, as usual at Tri City. The Pit Passes will be $35, with the exception of those required for the infants (ages 2 and under). The youngsters will be pitside for just $15.

The pit gates will be open at 2 p.m. and the spectator gates will open at 4 p.m. Racing will begin at 6 p.m. There will be practice for the Pro Stocks before the racing begins in earnest.

If you cannot make it to Tri City Raceway Park this week, consider the weekend doubleheader coming up on July 20 and 21. Saturday will feature a Demolition Derby and an Enduro. Next will be a Sunday Thunder program, along with Bike races for the children. Helmets will be required for all riders. Also, mark your racing calendars for the return of the FAST on Dirt Sprint Car Series on July 28.

The divisional sponsors of Tri City Raceway Park for 2024 are: Krill Recycling, LLC (410 Sprint Cars), 21st Century Energy Group (358 Modifieds), Hovis Auto & Truck Supply (Pro Stocks), and 4 Your Car Connection (RUSH Sprint Cars).

All competitors at Tri City Raceway Park will be eligible for the Marsh Heating & Cooling Heat Race Challenge. The driver that wins the most heat races over the courseof the season, regardless of the class, will receive a special award. Currently leading in that category is Tim Bish.

Other marketing partners of Tri City Raceway Park for 2024 include: Erie Beer, Wab-Tec (manufacturer of locomotive engines), Schaeffer Lubricants, Keystone Transit (school buses), Blue Ox Timbers (buyers of timberland timber land management), Constable Refuse (residential and commercial garbage collectors), First Rate Realty (real estate sales), Landscape Connection (portable toilets and landscape supplies), KEI-Klapec Express Inc. (trucking company), BKI-Bert Klapec Inc. (excavation and demolition), Shambaugh Towing, Gibson Hill Automotive (auto repair), McCandless Ford Sales (located in Mercer and Meadville), McCandless Trailer Sales (located in Mercer and Meadville), Big Dog RC (remote controlled cars and race track), McGregor Excavating, Les Frickshun (lubricants and undercoating), Bish Heating & Cooling, Wet Hose LLC (pressure washing), Heffern Septic Service, Tionesta Builders Supply (located in Tionesta and Shippenville), UCIP-United Community Independence Program (housing and services for the handicapped), Close Racing Supply, Billy’s Garage & Towing, Oakland-Rampart Equipment (makers of centrifugal dryers, wash systems, and separators), Shaw Industries (machine shop), Welding Technologies, Froggie Radio, and Hards Welding.

Remember that you will need to check the Facebook page, Tri City Raceway Park, for current information. The former website is not updated and will soon be replaced.

Tri-City Raceway Park is located just a few miles north of Franklin, PA, at 3430 State Route 417 in Oakland Township. Professional auto racing will be presented in a family friendly atmosphere most Sunday evenings from May through Labor Day weekend.

 

 

Petaluma Speedway visit nets another top-5 for Justyn Cox and Bates-Hamilton Racing

By Gary Thomas

Petaluma, CA…The consistent stretch over the last month continued for Justyn Cox this past Saturday night, as he guided the Bates-Hamilton Racing entry to another top-five finish in NARC 410 competition at Petaluma Speedway.

Cox opened the evening by timing in 14th overall aboard the Lippert Construction/ Mozingo Construction/ Dan Ewart Sales/ VinylTech PVC Pipe No. 42x.

A fifth-place result in his heat race then placed the 30-year-old driver on the outside of row seven in the main event. He was able to avoid a pileup on the opening lap, before settling into seventh once the race got underway.

The challenging surface made passing opportunities limited, but Cox made the move to take over sixth on lap 11 and then navigated his way into the top-five on lap 23. He would go on to cross under the checkered flag in fifth at the conclusion of the contest.

“At Petaluma we rebounded from a tough start to the night and snuck into the top-5 at the end of the main event,” Cox said. “Going forward is always good, especially on that tricky surface.”

Cox and Bates-Hamilton Racing now gear up for one of the biggest nights of the NARC 410 Sprint Car Series season, with the Howard Kaeding Classic up next at Ocean Speedway on Saturday July 13th.

“Hopefully the HK Classic goes smoother for us this season,” he commented. “We had a decent night going last year, before an opening lap flip from a half-spun car that ruined our race.”

Going into this weekend Cox continues to maintain third in the NARC standings and hopes for a good outing at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville.

“I enjoy the cool weather and track shape of Watsonville so I hope we can put together a solid night. HK is a legend of our sport, and it’s always cool to race in his honor. I’d love to sign that trophy at the end of the night.”

Prior to the races on Saturday the annual HK Classic Luncheon will take place at the track, which benefits the Northern Auto Racing Club Benevolent Fund. Fans, racers and crew are encouraged to attend.

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

Alex Pokorski keeps it steady in MSA Eagle River Speedway return

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) July 9, 2024 – While the 2024 racing season has been far from predictable from a weather angle, Alex Pokorski and the Akright Auto Racing Team have been pillars of consistency in Akright Auto Midwest Sprint Car Association 360 Sprint Car competition with the latest example of which coming via a solid sixth-place showing in the 25-lap main event at Eagle River Speedway in Eagle River, Wis. on Saturday, July 6.

The seventh overall MSA event and fifth complete race night of the 2024 season drew a field of 21 Sprint Cars for the second-ever Winged Sprint Car race ever held at the unique third-mile D-shaped clay oval.

The fifth-year Sprint Car competitor opened the night by qualifying third overall in the 21-car field with a lap of 13.875 seconds.

The West Bend, Wis. driver then lined up fourth in an eight-lap Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Car before moving past Clayton Rossmann and Bill Taylor to slip into the runner-up spot, where he ended the race.

After rolling off from the sixth starting position in the 25-lap main event, the 2023 PDTR and MSA Most Improved Driver Award winner dueled with a handful of his fellow competitors, including Clayton Rossmann, Justin Erickson and T.J. Haddy, for positions in and around the top-five throughout the race.

Following a spirited battle with Erickson in the closing laps, Pokorski pulled off a well-executed pass in turn four of the final lap to secure his fourth top-10 showing of the 2024 MSA campaign with a sixth-place finish in a race won by Ben Schmidt.

“We have been starting nights out really well,” Pokorski said. “We just need a bit more speed come feature time. It was fun to race side-by-side with guys in the feature, even though we didn't go anywhere. The Eagle River track is very nice. I wish it were closer to home so that we could race there more frequently.”

The Alex Pokorski-Akright Auto Racing Team will return to action at The Plymouth Dirt Track on Saturday, July 13 for the annual Plymouth Racing Wall of Fame Induction Night Program, during which the names of eight drivers (Fuzzy Fassbender, Donny Goeden, Dave Haag, Steve Hoffmann, Randy Markwardt, Pete Ostrowski, Steve Schad and K.J. Skelton), three track workers (Lee Glomski, John Laack and Bill Krueger) and the McMullen racing family will be added to the track’s Wall of Fame.

In addition, the PDTR-MSA 360 Sprint Cars, the Super Six Late Model Series, Grand Nationals and B Mods will also be on the card.

Grandstand gates open at 4:30 p.m. with qualifying at 5:30 p.m. and racing at 6 p.m.

Sponsors and supporters for the 2024 Alex Pokorski-Akright Auto Racing Team include Akright Auto, Mulch Express of Wisconsin, Lynch Buick GMC West Bend, Countryside Designs, Goeden Auto Body, Petersen Septic Systems, Wisconsin Bank and Trust, Professional Plating, Ace Hardware (Kiel and Sheboygan Falls locations), Cedar Valley Hunt Club, Real Estate Property Shop-Sue Erdmann, Bonafide Security Solutions, Novak’s Service Center, RC Custom Design and Pedal Down Promotions.

THUNDER ON THE GRAND TO GENERATE THRILLING SPRINT CAR TURF WAR

Racers competing from far and wide Thursday and Friday at Ohsweken Speedway

Article Credit: Adam Ross

July 9, 2024, OHSWEKEN, ON – The best sprint car racers in North America converge at Ohsweken Speedway for Thunder on the Grand this Thursday and Friday night. Racers representing multiple sanctioning bodies and territories roll into Six Nations with $15,000 up for grabs.

“We haven’t seen this level of interest internationally since before the pandemic,” said Speedway General Manager Clinton Geofrey. “Some of the biggest names in our sport are headed our way, and our fans are the real winners.”

A typical Ohsweken Speedway sprint car race features competitors from Ontario, Six Nations, and maybe one or two from New York. With big money on the line this week drivers are expected from Michigan, Ohio, New Jersey, Indiana, Pennsylvania, and Quebec to challenge the already-tough contingent of speedway regulars.

“Our regular racers can compete with anyone,” said Geoffrey. “Some of our invaders haven’t been here for five years or more. They will be surprised at how competitive our field has become.”

Scotland, Ontario’s, Dylan Westbrook has a bullseye squarely on his back. The winningest driver in speedway history is nearly undefeated in 2024 winning every main event except one at the lightning fast 1/3 mile oval. Last year’s dominator Mike Bowman of St. Catharines, Ontario, hopes slick track conditions will sway the advantage in his direction for two nights of action.

The Turner brothers Cory and Ryan have victory in mind with two nights of opportunity. The Tilsonburg and Dunnville residents respectively always show up prepared to battle for victory.

With upwards of 20 drivers expected from Ontario the other regions are equally well represented with talent.

Six Nations racers Glenn Styres and Aaron Turkey hope to keep the hardware close to home this week, and regardless of how many racers come from Quebec there’s one in particular who strikes fear into the competition.

Jordan Poirier has more wins in Ontario over the last five years than just about anybody, and he is entered for competition both Thursday and Friday.

More nostalgic Ohsweken Speedway fans will be quite familiar with names coming from the west. Michigan sprint car veterans Dustin Daggett and Gregg Dalman have past success at the Big O. They’ll be joined by Brad Lamberson, Eli Lakin and Ryan Ruhl. Ohio is home to the ultra competitive Max Stambaugh, and Phil Gressman, Kelsey Ivy and Canadian transplant Ryan Coniam will all venture around Lake Erie from the Buckeye State to chase racing glory.

The last batch of traveling racers represent the Empire Super Sprints from New York State. One of the longest tenured sprint car racing organizations in North America features talent like Jason Barney, Davie Franek, Matt Tanner, Jordan Thomas, Danny Varin, Billy VanInwegen and more.

Just qualifying for these events will be difficult, and all of the action starts at 7:30 pm both Thursday, July 11th, and Friday, July 12th. Be sure to come out early and enjoy some of the entertainment planned for both days.

Kings Meats Burger Night on Deck at Placerville Speedway Saturday

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA…Action returns to the El Dorado County Fairgrounds based quarter mile this Saturday, as Placerville Speedway showcases a loaded program on Burger Night presented by Kings Meats.

This Saturday July 13th all Burgers will be ½ price at the Speedway Café! It also continues free parking in July thanks to the El Dorado County Fair Association.

Russell Motorsports Inc. presents a four-division “Thunder in the Foothills” championship program that will include the Thompson’s Dealerships Winged 360 Sprint Cars, the Joe Hunt Magnetos Wingless Sprints, Red Hawk Casino Pure Stocks and the Mountain Democrat Mini Trucks.

An ultra close fight for the Thompson’s Family of Dealerships Winged Sprint Car title is developing, with the top-three drivers separated by just 12-points.

Elk Grove’s Bubba Decaires leads the way, as he looks to join his father as a Placerville Speedway champion. His dad Greg Decaires IV captured the track title four times in his illustrious career, while “G5” sits 11-markers up on June 29th winner Shane Hopkins going into Kings Meats Burger Night.

Nine-time Placerville champ Andy Forsberg is fresh off his third win of the season and heads into Saturday 12-digits back of Decaires. Modesto’s Tony Gomes and rookie Austin Wood of Sacramento round out the top-five in the standings.

The Red Hawk Casino Pure Stocks also have a tremendous championship race taking place with Oakley’s Nick Baldwin leading Diamond Springs’ Kevin Jinkerson by five slim points. Both drivers have tallied three wins, along with top-five efforts each night.

Jinkerson has finished second to Baldwin in the standings four years in a row and will be looking to change that as the season winds down. Placerville’s Tyler Lightfoot, Orangevale’s Tommy Sturgeon and Cameron Park’s Jason Ramos complete the top-five in points.

Multi-time Mountain Democrat Mini Truck champion Mike Miller of Placerville leads the way into Saturday. Miller has captured three of the four events held and goes into the night 24-marker up on Howard Miller of Minden, Nevada.

The Joe Hunt Magnetos Wingless Sprint Cars are always an exciting addition to the program and make their only Placerville Speedway stop of the season on Saturday. Oakley’s Jacob Tuttle sits atop the standings over Shawn Arriaga, Josh Young, DJ Johnson and Jimmy Christian. Young captured victory with the High Sierra Wingless Sprints at the track last month.

Brown in the hunt at Knoxville until flat; Knoxville, Eldora on horizon

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. (July 9, 2024) - “Blackjack” Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing were well on their way to a Knoxville Raceway podium finish on Saturday, July 6, that until contact with the outside retaining wall - with just a handful of laps recorded - halted the Missouri native’s momentum.

Brown was battling for third when the accidental contact occurred; he started sixth and was ultimately scored 17th.

“That was my fault, not the wall’s fault…I shouldn’t have put myself in that position,” Brown, ace of the Casey’s, FVP, Andy's Frozen Custard, Impact Signs Awnings and Wraps, Mt. Dew Overdrive, Ditzfeld Transfer, Hawk Hunting, No. 21 sprint car, said. “It was a solid night up until that point, qualifying fourth to get the evening rolling, and we even had a great car in the heat. I honestly thought we had a car that could contend for a win. Got from sixth to third in the first lap or so. Got settled in there and that’s when I got myself a little too high and made contact with the backstretch wall.

“I really like how we are at Knoxville as a team,” Brown continued. “Our qualifying, heat race and feature packages are all solid and that should pay off in August. We’re looking forward to another great night at Knoxville before we head to Ohio for the Kings Royal.”

As mentioned, Brian Brown, a recent winner at the Sprint Car Capital of the World - the 66th of his career - will return to Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday, July 13. The Higginsville, Missouri, native will then turn his attention to the World’s Greatest Dirt Track - Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio - for the coveted Kings Royal.

ON DECK: Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing will continue their 2024 campaign with a return visit to Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday, July 13.

Sean Becker Surges To NARC Win at Petaluma Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA- The last few weeks Sean Becker has known the Bjork Motorsports car was getting stronger by the race, and knew a win was on the horizon. Flirting with wins one week ago, Becker was able to breakthrough in a big way as he scored his first win with the team during Saturday’s NARC event in Petaluma, CA which was also Don Bjork’s first NARC win as a car owner.

“I am so extremely happy to get this win, and to give Don Bjork (car owner) his first NARC win,’ Sean Becker said. “We had been knocking on the door the last few weeks, and it feels great to finally break through and seal the deal.”

With 21 cars on hand for Dave Lindt Memorial, Becker got his night underway by timing the Bjork Construction backed No. 7B in fastest in qualifications.

Lining up in the second row of his heat race, Becker finished fourth which was good enough to lock him into the Trophy Dash.

Drawing the four, Becker tallied a fourth place finish which put him in the second row of the 30-lap feature event.

Jumping into third when race came to life following a multi car pile up that slowed the start of the race, Becker settled in as he worked hard on the unusually slick Petaluma Speedway surface.

Into second, Becker hooked up in torrid battle for the race lead as the laps continued to click down as he chased after the $5200 top prize.

In the waning laps of the race, Becker was able to power to the lead as he officially took the top spot on lap 29. A yellow the next lap put Justin Sanders right on Becker’s rear bumper. Able to fend off the red hot driver, Becker went on to captures his first feature event win with Bjork Motorsports.

“The track was extremely slick, but it was also abrasive so hitting your marks and conserving tires was really tricky,” Becker explained. “Luckily Brad Bumgarner gave me a super fast car right out of the box and it kept us in a good position all night long.”

.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-18, Wins-1, Top 5’s- 7, Top-10’s- 14

ON TAP: Becker and Bjork Motorsports will be back in action Saturday night at Ocean Speedway.

STAY CONNECTED: If you can’t be at the track, make sure to give Sean a follow on Instagram at @BeckerRacing23.

 

 

Reinhardt’s Pennsylvania Speedweek Cut Short
Bechtelsville, PA – July 9, 2024

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Mgmt

The weather in Central Pennsylvania wasn’t the only thing that was too hot during PA Speedweek. Kyle Reinhardt battled engine overheating issues two nights in a row before cutting his week short to avoid hurting the engine.

Prior to the unfortunate issues, Reinhardt was headed for a career-best Speedweek points finish.

Entering the second half of the ten-race series, Reinhardt sat 6th in the point standings.

TOO HOT

Wednesday night at Port Royal Speedway, a place that has been challenging in recent years, Reinhardt’s qualifying lap ranked him 9th in Group B and put him 5th on the starting grid for his heat race. With the top five transferring to the A-main, it put the New Oxford, PA driver in good position to make the show.

Reinhardt got the job done, finishing 5th and transferring to the feature. He went on to move forward a few spots and finish 15th in the 30-lap finale.

The following night the series visited Hagerstown Speedway, a track Reinhardt said he looks forward to racing each year when the sprint cars make their lone annual visit.

Reinhardt qualified 18th at the Maryland half-mile and logged another heat race finish of 5th to transfer to the A-main once again.

Despite managing an engine that was running hot during Thursday’s show, Reinhardt made it through the 30-lap feature to record a 15th-place finish.

Friday night Speedweek action returned to Williams Grove Speedway where Reinhardt had logged a top ten finish a week earlier in the Capitol Custom Coaches & Trailers, Coors Banquet Beer, E-Z-GO Golf Cars, Henry’s Wrecker Service No.91.

His qualifying result was on par with the week before but he battled an overheating engine again in his heat race, slipping back two spots to a 7th place finish.

Reinhardt was forced to make the tough call to end his week before the B-main took to the track.

“Hate to have to pull the plug on our week but I just can’t afford to hurt this engine and my other engine is currently getting freshened. I want to thank David, Mike, Kent, and Chris for all their hard work and efforts this week.”, Reinhardt said.

“I think we made better improvements with the car but I think we were being held back with engine issues during the week. Definitely disappointing to end early after such a grueling effort all week long.“
UP NEXT

Reinhardt had already planned to take a break in his schedule after Speedweek. That break now becomes a must while he gets his engines back in race-ready condition before the World of Outlaws’ summer swing through Central Pennsylvania.

The Neptune City, NJ native plans to complete with the Outlaws at BAPS Motor Speedway on July 24th and Williams Grove Speedway on July 26th and 27th.

Estenson Ties Career-Best Result at Huset's Speedway With Fifth-Place Outing

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (July 8, 2024) - Tim Estenson highlighted a three-race weekend by tying his career-best result at Huset's Speedway on Sunday.

Estenson finished fifth at the high-banked track to remain third in the championship standings.

"I think it was really good," he said. "Consistency has been key for us at Huset's. I'd say it was one of my best nights there this year."

Estenson qualified eighth quickest in his group and he won a heat race. He ranked ninth in overall points to start the main event on the inside of the fifth row. Estenson gained a couple of positions during the race before pouncing during a green-white-checkered finish to climb into the top five.

"We qualified pretty decent and got a good starting spot in the heat race and capitalized on that," he said. "Jack (Dover) had the car pretty dialed in. I felt good and we were able to move forward throughout the race."

Estenson also raced with the POWRi 410 Outlaw Sprints on Friday and Saturday at Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo., where he placed 14 th both nights.

"Both nights were really similar," he said. "We started out the night good, but I stepped on it in the feature both nights on a track that I've never really been good at. I just made too many mistakes. But we took what we could and went to somewhere familiar and capitalized on a good result on Sunday."

Estenson will return to Huset's Speedway this Sunday.

"I think it's a really good confidence booster," he said of his most recent race at the track. "We're qualifying somewhat decent and getting better. We're moving forward in most of them and our average finish is somewhere around seventh. We'll just keep working at it and stay positive and hopefully continue with consistent results that will lead to some podiums and a win."

"I'm super grateful to have been in the No. 55b and am excited to be back in my car," he said. "I'm grateful for my partners and sponsors who have pushed me and been gracious to allow me to drive another car. I'm looking forward to using some of the experiences and things I've learned to better our program."

Andy Forsberg Picks Up Pair of Victories During 4th of July Week

PETERSEN MEDIA: A very busy 4th of July holiday saw Andy Forsberg and the Pacific Highway Rentals team take part in three different races and score two feature event wins as they took top honors at Marysville Raceway and Placerville Speedway.

“It was a good week for our team, despite my bonehead move on the 4th of July at Placerville Speedway,” Andy Forsberg said. “It was the triple digit nationals all three nights, so I really give it to my guys for working so hard despite the conditions being brutal.”

Forsberg kicked the busy week off on Wednesday night as he checked into Marysville Raceway. With the heat having an impact on the car count, Forsberg continued about his business and opened the night up with quick time honors in time trials.

Finishing third in the heat race, Forsberg locked into the redraw where he lined up on the front row of the 25-lap affair. When the race came to life, Forsberg got the jump over Justin Peck, and began to set a torrid pace as they worked around the bullring.

A couple of stoppages but Peck on Forsberg’s rear bumper, but in open track Forsberg was able to wire the field and score the feature event on back on July 3rd.

July 4th saw the team check into Placerville Speedway for the track’s annual Fireworks Spectacular points show.

Earning quick time honors in qualifications, a fourth-place finish in his heat race locked him into the feature event as well as into the redraw. Not having the best luck in the draw, the seven pill placed him in the fourth row.

Getting a great jump when the race came to life, Forsberg was up into third by the second lap as he chased after the lead duo of Dylan Bloomfield and Shane Golobic.

Briefly moving into second on a restart, Forsberg drifted back into third before a miscue on the 14th lap saw him get into the cushion too hard and upset his car to bring out the yellow. Restarting at the tail end of the field, Forsberg capped the night with an 18th place finish.

Saturday night again saw Forsberg and company check into Placerville Speedway as he looked for a bit of redemption, and the night did not get off to a great start for the team.

Fighting engine issues in hot laps, the team thrashed to make a fix before time trials, and with things still amiss, Forsberg made one lap and qualified eighth fastest.

Putting him on the front row of his heat race, the team continued to make changes under the hood before it was their time to hit the track.

Settling into second, a restart allowed Forsberg to power into the race lead and pick up the win.

With the engine much more lively, the team did a little tuning before the feature where Forsberg took the green flag from the third starting position.

As the race came to life, Bubba DeCaires jumped into the early lead as Forsberg settled into second and gave chase. Running second until the caution flew on the seventh lap, Forsberg used the restart to power into the race lead and being to drive away from the field.

Opening his lead up to over six seconds, a late yellow bunched the leader back up. Feeling some brief pressure from Shane Hopkins, Forsberg needed a lap to get going as he was able to pull away from the field and score his second win of the week.

“We cant event pinpoint what our issue was because we continued to change things, so we will have a little homework to do this week,” Forsberg said. “Big thanks to my guys for all of their help, and we are looking forward to a long week to recover before we get back to it on Saturday.”

Andy Forsberg and PHR Racing would like to thank Meridian Cameras, Pacific Highway Rentals, Oroville Tax, Wilkie Masonry, Western Traffic Supply, PitStopUSA, Red Line Oil, FK Rod Ends, Autism Awareness, Parking and Transportation Group, Western Featherlite, 1st Vanguard, Highway Specialty Co., and KBJ Catering for their continued support.

Hagar Posts Podium During USCS Series Show at Magnolia Motor Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - COLUMBUS, Miss. (July 8, 2024) - Derek Hagar earned his seventh podium result in his last eight races last Wednesday during a USCS Series event at Magnolia Motor Speedway.

Hagar finished where he started - second - in a heat race before he won the dash from the pole position.

"We really struggled all night to kind of get the speed we needed," he said. "The race track put new dirt on it so it holds moisture a lot longer than in years past. Once you get going it's hard to get by a car. We luckily made the dash and drew the No. 1 so that put us on the pole for the dash. The car felt great and we won that."

Hagar led the first few laps of the main event.

"Everything felt good the first four or five laps around the top," he said. "All of a sudden the bottom came in. I was way too tight to run down there. I tried to make the middle work and the top work, do what I could, but we ultimately finished third. I couldn't hold the bottom like they were. Every lap they kept pulling further and further from me until we got to traffic.

"Brady Baker passed me on an early restart on the bottom. I could tell I was getting more free up top. Once I moved down I had to slow up so much. It was burning the brakes off the car to keep it going. We made the bottom work for a couple of laps and almost got the lead back in traffic. I was running third and pulled up beside both of them, but a lapped car blocked me and right after that a caution came out. We never really got into thick traffic after that."

The third-place result was his ninth top five of the season.

Hagar plans to race either this Saturday at Greenville Speedway in Greenville, Miss., with the ASCS Hurricane Area Super Sprints or Friday at Sugar Creek Raceway in Blue Ridge, Ga., and Saturday at Dixie Speedway in Woodstock, Ga., with the USCS Series.

"The weather looks good at both of them so it depends on what work is like this week," he said. "One is seven hours from the house and the other is three hours so we'll make a decision later this week."

“The 4th got off to a bit of a slow start, but in the feature I knew I had to get up on the wheel and go after starting pretty far back, and we had a fun race that ended with a third place finish,” Tony Gomes said. “The sixth we were in a good starting spot, but I got caught up in a lap one issue and had to go to the back. Able to get back up to fourth, another issue arose and with nowhere to go our night came to an unfortunate end."

Kicking the long weekend off on Thursday night, Gomes timed the Lund Construction/Anrak/Sam Rhodes backed No. 7c in 14th fastest and hand his work cut out for himself.

Finishing third in his heat race, Gomes lined up in the seventh row of the 25-lap feature event. With the track staying in good shape despite the high heat, Gomes was able to slice and dice his way through the field.

Working into the Top-5 just before the halfway point, Gomes continued to power his way forward. Working into third on the 14th lap, Gomes chased after Shane Golobic and Dylan Bloomfield who were out front.

When the Ron Stahl checkered flew, Gomes capped his night of with a run from 13th to 3rd.

Back at the track on Saturday night amidst blazing heat, Gomes’ night got off to a better start as he timed in sixth fastest in qualifying time trials before scoring a second-place finish in heat race competition.

Lining up eighth in the feature event, Gomes got off to another good start, however a multi car tangle with one lap in the books collected Gomes and relegated to him to the back of the pack.

Just as he did on Thursday, Gomes was a rocket from the rear of the field, and was back into the seventh spot by the seventh lap.

Gomes continued to work around the bullring and was up into the fourth spot on lap 16, and looking for more.

Unfortunately, the Modesto, CA runners’ night came to an end on the 18th lap as another multi car pile up collected him again in turns one and two.

“Saturday was definitely disappointing for our team since we were really running well after a really good run on Thursday,” Gomes said. “I cant thank Cody, John, and Bobby enough for their hard work, because the heat was brutal all weekend long. Those guys never gave up, and I wish Saturday could have produced another top three finish. Cody and Mandi continue to provide a great opportunity, and I’m very confident with the speed we have heading into Saturday’s event.”

The C&M Motorsports team would like to thank Lund Construction, Anrak, Sam Rhodes, Alturas Tires, Swartz Diesel, Adrian Blanco Jewelry, Kings Meats, American Paving Systems, PT Shocks, Creason Enterprises, and all of their product sponsors for their continued support.

ON TAP: C&M Motorsports and Tony Gomes will be at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-9, Wins-0, Top 5’s-2, Top 10’s-7

Dover Returning to Seat at Jackson Motorplex Friday With Tim Estenson Motorsports

Inside Line Promotions - SPRINGFIELD, Neb. (July 8, 2024) - Jack Dover will pilot the Tim Estenson Motorsports No. 14 this Friday at Jackson Motorplex.

The Midwest Sprint Touring Series 410 Sprint Cars event at the dirt oval in Jackson, Minn., will mark the first time this season that Dover will drive the car in which he primarily serves as the crew chief.

"Last year I got behind the wheel a couple of times during the season as I think it helps the program when I can feel some of the things Tim talks about," he said. "I'm also excited to head to a track where I've enjoyed a lot of success."

Dover last competed at Jackson Motorplex in June 2022, when he placed fourth and ninth, respectively. He posted a pair of third-place results there in 2021 and two fourth-place outings in 2020. Dover was victorious at the track in 2019, when he added four additional top fives. He recorded three wins there in 2018 and two in 2017.

"I've been fortunate to win a lot of races at Jackson and feel like I've been a contender in a lot of other races there," he said. "It's a track where I've had speed and been able to put myself in a good position come feature-time. That will be the goal again this Friday. I think if we can get ourselves into the first couple or few rows of the main event we can run up front."

Friday will mark Dover's fourth start of the season. He was victorious during his season opener in a Midwest Sprint Touring Series 360 Sprint Cars race and placed third in a Malvern Bank 360 Sprints show before he finished in the B Main of a Kubota High Limit Racing event during his most recent start.

Kaleb Johnson Finishes Sixth at Huset's Speedway and Ninth at Knoxville Raceway

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (July 8, 2024) - Kaleb Johnson produced a top-10 performance at both Knoxville Raceway and Huset's Speedway last weekend.

Johnson's best outing occurred on Sunday at Huset's Speedway, where he qualified seventh quickest in his group and won a heat race to advance into the feature redraw. He was the final driver to draw and the No. 5 was remaining, lining him up on the inside of the third row in the main event.

"We didn't qualify the greatest, but winning the heat race was crucial," he said. "In the feature, I fell back to sixth right away and raced there for a while. As we approached traffic you could almost put a blanket on the top six. I was up to fifth at one point and on the restart at the end I avoided a sideways car and lost a couple of spots. Even though I felt we were better than a sixth-place car, it went pretty well."

Johnson's sixth-place outing was his seventh top 10 in seven A Mains at the track this season. He continues to lead the championship standings.

Johnson also did double duty driving for Dennis Gainey on Saturday at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa. His best run was in the 360ci winged sprint car division as he qualified 14 th quickest and placed fourth in a heat race before hustling from 16 th to ninth in the main event. That was the second-most positions gained.

"I was a little bummed we didn't qualify the greatest and lost a spot in the heat race," he said. "Each week we're trying something different. Come feature-time we get it figured out. Once we can get better at the earlier part of the night it'll be crucial.

"I was good early in the feature and got behind a car that got crossed up. I had to get out of the gas and the next thing I knew four or five cars passed me. There was a restart at the end of the race and I was able to move my wing back. I went where people weren't and was able to gain those spots back."

Johnson's night in the 410ci winged sprint car division came to an early end because of mechanical woes. He timed in 23 rd quickest in qualifying and won a heat race before being unable to finish the A Main.

Johnson will drive his car this Friday at Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn., during a Midwest Sprint Touring Series 410 Sprint Cars show before returning to Huset's Speedway on Sunday. He will also pilot a 360 sprint car for Gainey on Saturday at Knoxville Raceway.

"I'm pretty excited to get back to Jackson," he said. "We haven't raced there all year. We have a lot of sponsors and support around that area. And hopefully we can continue to get better in Dennis's car at Knoxville and in ours at Huset's."

Starks Focused on Consistency at Skagit Speedway This Saturday

Inside Line Promotions - ALGER, Wash. (July 8, 2024) - Trey Starks is set to make his final 410ci winged sprint car start at Skagit Speedway in more than the next month this Saturday.

Starks is leading the championship standings at the high-banked oval by 54 points thanks to a division-best three wins and five top fives.

"We wrecked our primary car the opening night of Dirt Cup," he said. "Since then the chassis has been repaired and we're rebuilding the car from top to bottom so everything will be nice and fresh. I'm excited to get back in the 410 and back to Square One on that program after some chaos lately. We've had speed, but haven't had much luck the last couple of weeks so hopefully we can reset and get back to where we need to be."

Starks competed in a 360ci winged sprint car race at Skagit Speedway last Saturday. He set quick time during qualifying before advancing from fourth to second place in a heat race. That moved him into the feature redraw, in which Starks drew the highest number - eight - to start the main event on the outside of the fourth row.

"Qualifying was a little odd," he said. "We were set to go out around 18 th out of 26 cars. For some reason our transponder didn't register so I had to go back out at the end. The track may or may not have slowed down, but for having to go out at the end and going quick time was a good feeling. We got to second in the heat race and then unfortunately we drew the worst number we could in the feature redraw.

"In the feature, we worked our way up to third by about halfway. We had our sights on first and second. I think we were all on the same straightaway with a handful of lapped cars between each one of us. I may or may not have been able to get there without a caution, but unfortunately with about five laps or so to go we had an engine problem that ended our night. It's not ideal going into the Summer Nationals at the end of the month, but that's how it goes sometimes."

Starks was credited with a 17th-place finish. It snapped a three-race 360 sprint car winning streak at Skagit Speedway for Starks, who now holds a 53-point advantage in the championship standings.

QUICK RESULTS -

July 6 - Skagit Speedway in Alger, Wash. - Qualifying: 1; Heat race: 2 (4); Feature: 17 (8).

SEASON STATS -

16 races, 8 wins, 12 top fives, 12 top 10s, 14 top 15s, 15 top 20s

Dietrich and GKR impressive in Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek campaign; Williams Grove and Lincoln on deck
ByTyler Altmeyer
Jul 8, 2024

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (July 8, 2024) – Danny Dietrich’s 2024 Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek campaign was more than impressive, not only recording nine top-ten finishes in the nine contested events, but of those nine top-tens, six were recorded within the top-five, three of which victories.

Impressive statistics, nonetheless, of Dietrich’s trio of victories, two were accomplished in wire-to-wire fashion, leading every lap of main event action at BAPS Motor Speedway, as well as Selinsgrove Speedway. Dietrich’s season win count now stands at ten.

As already mentioned, Dietrich was nine-for-nine in the top-ten column, finishing no worse than eighth – doing so twice at Williams Grove Speedway and Port Royal Speedway on July 5-6.

“Overall, a great week for Gary Kauffman Racing. It was demanding, for sure, but my guys never let up. They busted their butts every single night and it’s their effort that allowed us to have the success that we did,” Danny Dietrich expressed. “We wanted that Speedweek championship, and we were close, just needed some better results heading into the final weekend. Regardless, it was a great week.

“A big thanks to the fans for coming out and supporting us every night,” Dietrich added. “We wouldn’t be able to do this without them and we’re pretty blessed to have the support that we do in Central Pennsylvania.”

Xavier and Natalie Doney with success in POWRi weekend at Lake Ozark Speedway
ByTyler Altmeyer
Jul 8, 2024

ODESSA, Mo. (July 8, 2024) – Two days at Lake Ozark Speedway resulted in two days of success for Xavier Doney, Natalie Doney, and Doney-Lawson Racing, joining POWRi’s finest for back-to-back nights of WAR and 410 Outlaw Sprint Series competition on Friday and Saturday, July 5-6. When the dust settled on Saturday night, the Doney-Lawson Racing duo, pilots of the Schnee-Lawson Chassis house cars, had plenty to show for, all of which highlighted by Xavier’s victory during WAR action on Saturday, July 6. The Odessa, Missouri, native actually swept the evening’s non-wing program, scoring victories in the WAR heat, as well as A-Main.

In addition, Xavier, ace of the Schnee-Lawson Chassis, Motor Haven, Design Source Flooring sprint car, finished second to open Lake Ozark’s WAR doubleheader on Friday, July 5, accompanying his non-wing results with back-to-back top-tens during POWRi 410 Outlaw Sprint Series action; he finished tenth on Friday and eighth on Saturday. The Missouri youngster utilized fourth and second-place heat race finishes to pad his eventual winged feature successes.

Natalie Doney, Xavier’s younger sister and teammate, joined in on the Lake Ozark Speedway Independence Day weekend fun, joining her brother for Saturday’s POWRi WAR portion of the program. Natalie raced on to finish sixth in the WAR main event – a great consolation after her regularly scheduled Saturday night agenda (Valley Speedway in a 305ci sprint car) was washed away due to Mother Nature.

Xavier Doney’s WAR triumph was his second since June 14, earning top honors at Crawford County Speedway in Denison, Iowa.

SCHNEE-LAWSON CHASSIS HOUSE CAR UPCOMING SCHEDULE:
Xavier Doney and Doney-Lawson Racing | Schnee-Lawson Chassis House Cars will continue their 2024 campaign with another POWRi doubleheader at Paducah International Raceway in Paducah, Kentucky, on Friday and Saturday, July 12-13.

Natalie Doney and Doney-Lawson Racing | Schnee-Lawson Chassis House Cars will enjoy an off-weekend.

RECENT HIGHLIGHTS:
Xavier Doney finished sixth during USAC National Sprint Cars competition at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Friday, May 31.

RMM and Westfall runner-up at Waynesfield; Team gears up for Indiana Sprint Week
ByTyler Altmeyer
Jul 8, 2024

FOREST, Ohio (July 8, 2024) – Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports made the most of their holiday campaign, activating the extended weekend with a start at Waynesfield Raceway Park on July 3, followed by back-to-back USAC National starts at Lincoln Park Speedway in Putnamville, Indiana, on July 5-6. Although a tough pair of nights in Putnamville, highlighting the USAC pair with an 18th-place score on Friday, the team ultimately activated their stretch with a key result on Wednesday.

Westfall, ace of Ray Marshall’s Buckeye Machine Fabricators Inc, Hempy Water, DPI Ink, Wix Filters, Rod End Supply, Allstar Performance, No. 33M sprint car, finished second at the Buckeye State bullring, nearly winning the event after growing a two-second lead. Caution flags would erase Westfalls’ commanding margin, and although the Pleasant Hill, Ohio, native returned to green with an impressive restart, an eventual run in with lapped traffic would prove his demise.

Westfall’s USAC National Sprint Cars commitments will not resume until July 26, as Indiana Sprint Week is set to activate with a return visit to Lincoln Park Speedway. ISW will visit Lincoln Park, Kokomo, Lawrenceburg, Circle City, Terre Haute, Bloomington, and Tri-State in consecutive fashion.

“A so-so weekend for our Ray Marshall Motorsports team. Had a hard time building some momentum at Lincoln Park, but we’ll get another shot when we return there for Indiana Sprint Week,” Westfall expressed. “Indiana Sprint Week is a big deal and we look forward to being a part of it. We’re hoping for a solid week and hopefully pad our stat book a little bit more.”

ON DECK:
Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports will continue their 2024 USAC National Sprint Cars campaign with Indiana Sprint Week beginning July 26 at Lincoln Park Speedway:

July 26 | Lincoln Park Speedway | Putnamville, IN

Andrews consistent in AFCS pair at Attica, Fremont; Fremont plus Attica’s Brad Doty Classic all ahead
ByTyler Altmeyer
Jul 8, 2024

SANDUSKY, Ohio (July 8, 2024) – Although shy of the top-ten in each of their weekend results, Chris Andrews and Chris Andrews Racing put together a sound effort in their holiday visits to Attica Raceway Park and Fremont Speedway, concluding the Attica/Fremont Championship Series (AFCS) pair with 12th and 14th-place finishes, respectively. Unfortunately, Andrews’ Attica result ended a recent streak of top-tens that stood at two entering the weekend.

Andrews, ace of his own Ohio Truck Sales, OTS Truck Centers, Fleet Capital, Cintas, Kenworth of Cleveland, Toledo Spring, No. 15C sprint car, can attribute his sound weekend to his preliminary efforts, setting the fifth-fastest qualifying time at Attica before racing on to win his respective heat race. At Fremont, Andrews was forced to come through the evening’s B-Main, winning said consolation after a heat race spin forced him to do so.

“Made some mistakes, but in all, a decent weekend for us,” Andrews expressed. “We’ve been able to put together some decent performances, but we still want to do better. Can’t thank my team and all our partners for the opportunity to do this. There’s a lot of moving parts, but I’m fortunate to be surrounded by a lot of great people.”

ON DECK:
Chris Andrews and Chris Andrews Racing will continue their 2024 campaign with an AFCS start at Fremont Speedway in Fremont, Ohio, on Saturday, July 13. Andrews will also join the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series in Attica Raceway Park’s annual Brad Doty Classic on Tuesday, July 16.

A-Aron and RSR second in Knoxville’s Nolan Wren Memorial
ByTyler Altmeyer
Jul 8, 2024

KNOXVILLE, Iowa (July 8, 2024) – Not so often the case, Aaron Reutzel and Ridge & Sons Racing (RSR) were one spot from victory in Saturday night’s Nolan Wren Memorial at the Sprint Car Capital of the World, losing command to eventual winner, Scott Bogucki, with less than two circuits remaining.

Reutzel, a seven-time winner on the season including four within the 360 ranks at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, led laps five through 18 before giving up the top spot, setting up his eventual podium run from fourth on the A-Main grid. It was heavy lapped traffic that kept Reutzel from attaining his eighth triumph of the season, forced to check up allowing Bogucki to slip by.

Nearly a double top-five night at the Sprint Car Capital of the World, the Clute, Texas, native was well on his way to a podium outcome in Saturday’s 360 sprint car portion of the program, that until contact with a lapped car with eight-to-go stalled his momentum; he was scored 21st.

Consistency a key factor, Aaron Reutzel and RSR remain in control of the 410 sprint car standings at Knoxville Raceway, leading Austin McCarl by 22 markers heading into the Marion County Fair.

Chase Randall and TKS Motorsports impressive in Iowa, South Dakota double

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

MITCHELLVILLE, Iowa (July 8, 2024) - A winless weekend for the “Quickest Chicken” Chase Randall and TKS Motorsports, but the highlights were just as impressive, not only kicking off their holiday stretch on July 6-7 with a hard charge at the Sprint Car Capital of the World, but ultimately capping their campaign with a runner-up performance at Huset’s Speedway in Brandon, South Dakota. The podium outcome was the team’s 11th top-five of the season, simultaneously increasing their top-ten total to 16.

As mentioned, Randall, ace of Troy Renfro’s Albaugh - Your Alternative, Iowa Barnstormers, Des Moines Industrial Products, Jersey Freeze Ice Cream, AL Driveline, TJ Forged, No. 2KS sprint car, earned Knoxville Raceway’s Hard Charger Award on Saturday, July 6, doing so with an impressive rally from 21st to finish 12th. Power plant issues during Randall’s heat race forced the Waco, Texas, native to the program’s B-Main; he raced on to win.

Randall’s Huset’s Speedway outing commenced with a heat race victory; he eventually started second on the feature grid. Additionally, the runner-up finish was Randall’s third of the year on the Huset’s highbanks.

“We’re always striving to do better, but we’re proud of our weekend results,” Troy Renfro stated. “For Chase to rebound like he did at Knoxville says so much about his ability and his focus. And our time will come at Huset’s Speedway. We were close again, just need to be a little bit better.”

ON DECK:
TKS Motorsports and Chase Randall will continue their 2024 campaign with upcoming starts at Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minnesota, and Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Friday and Saturday, July 12-13.

FOURTH IN POINTS, LOGAN WILLIAMS GOES TO THE SANTA MARIA RACEWAY ON SATURDAY

(Ontario, CA, July 3, 2024) Enjoying the best season of his career, Logan Williams will be behind the wheel of the Flowdynamics #5W when the Avanti Windows and Doors USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series makes its first appearance at the Santa Maria Speedway since 2022 this Saturday, July 6th. Spectator gates at the newly reopened 1/3 mile banked clay oval will open at 4:00 p.m., qualifying will start at 5:00, and the first race will take the green flag at 6:00.

Williams, who lives in Yorba Linda, California, has performed well in his last two outings at Santa Maria. On July 3, 2021, he placed eighth in the main. At the last USAC/CRA race at the track on August 6, 2022, he finished the 30-lapper in fourth place.

The 2013 Perris Auto Speedway Young Guns champion and 2014 USAC/CRA Rookie of the Year, Williams has been one of the most consistent drivers in the USAC/CRA Series this season. He has seven top-10s and four top-five finishes in the first eight races. The only night he placed out of the top 10 came at Perris when driveline issues sent him off the track early in the going on April 27th. He ended up 22nd on that night. Entering this Saturday’s race, he is fourth in the series championship point standings, and he is only five points out of third.

At the series last race at Perris on June 22nd, Williams and teammate Matt McCarthy, who lives in Riverside, California, had flashes of brilliance on what turned out to be a strange race. On a hot, windy night, Williams turned in the seventh fastest time of the 22 cars on hand during qualifying when he toured the half-mile oval with a lap of 17.651. McCarthy’s 17.950 was the 13th fastest on the night.

The times in qualifying ensured the teammates that they would be starting in the same heat race. In fact, they were starting nose to tail in the first heat. McCarthy was on the outside of row one and Williams was directly behind him. They finished next to each other for the second Perris heat in a row. At the Salute to Indy in May, McCarthy was second, and Williams was third when they were matched up in the same heat. This time, it was McCarthy for the win with Williams second. It was his third heat race win in five starts in 2024 for McCarthy, who makes his home in Riverside, California.

The main turned into one of the most bizarre races in the 28-season history of Perris Auto Speedway. Afternoon temperatures surpassed the century mark. To throw another wrench into the situation, Mother Nature was supplying wind. Normally when there is wind at Perris, it lays down late in the afternoon. On this occasion, the wind did not stop, and the temperature was 80 degrees when the main bumped off.

Williams started the 30-lap main in seventh, with McCarthy coming from 13th. Due to the heat and wind, the track quickly became very dusty, hindering the driver's visibility. McCarthy was involved in a skirmish with three other cars on lap 16, ending his night with an 18th-place finish.

Williams’ night ended on lap 20 when series officials threw the red flag and ended the race due to the dusty conditions. By that time, Williams had advanced his position to fourth. That gave him three straight top fours, including a second at Kevin Harvick’s Kern County Raceway on June 8th.

Adult tickets are $25.00 for Saturday’s race at Santa Maria. Seniors and military get in for $23.00. For kids 6-12, it is only $5.00, and children 5 and under are free. The track is located at 1900 Hutton Road in Nipomo. The track website is https://santamariaspeedway.net/.

Whenever you get the chance to meet the Flowdynamics drivers in person, be sure to visit them in the pits. They will be glad to sign your autographs, and each of them will have their fine-looking team shirts available.

EDDIE TAFOYA JR. STARTS THREE STRAIGHT WEEKS OF RACING SATURDAY NIGHT AT SANTA MARIA

(Chino, CA, July 4, 2024) Eddie Tafoya Jr. begins three straight Saturday nights of racing when the Avanti Windows and Doors USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series makes its first of three 2024 appearances at the newly rejuvenated Santa Maria Speedway this Saturday, July 6th. One week later, on July 13th, he will contest the USAC/CRA race at Perris Auto Speedway and will close the month when the Ultimate Sprint Car Series, presented by Inland Rigging, visits the Ventura Raceway on July 20th.

Tafoya, who will turn 27 next Wednesday, will be making his 21st start of the season on Saturday. As of late, the friendly racer has been steadily climbing higher on the USAC/CRA Series championship point ladder. The Chino Hills, California resident enters Saturday’s fray on the 1/3 mile banked clay oval eighth in the standings. He is a mere 10 points out of seventh and less than 90 points behind the third-place driver.

Advancing so high in the standings comes after a wild start to the season when he seemed to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. In the first three USAC/CRA races of the year, Tafoya finished 21st, 16th and 12th. The main event finishing average of those three races was 16.33. In the last five races, he has a fourth, a sixth, two eight-place results, and a ninth. His average finish in the last five is 7.00. His overall average for all eight USAC/CRA races this year is 10.37.

The average for the last five races and for all eight races on the schedule would more than likely have been lower had the last series race on June 22nd not been stopped 10 laps early. Series officials red-flagged the event due to dusty conditions. In that race, Tafoya had to restart at the back after a tangle on lap 16. In just four laps, he raced all the way up to eighth. Had the race run its 30-lap duration; in all likelihood, he would have passed more cars.

In going to Santa Maria on Saturday, Tafoya returns to the site of his best finish of the year. On June 15th, he placed second in the USCS main event at the 60-year-old facility. In addition to it being his best finish of the year, it was also his best-ever finish at Santa Maria. The result came at the first race at the track since 2022. The surface that night was a tire eater. However, this will be the track’s second race since then, and teams are looking for improved track conditions on Saturday.

The gates for Saturday’s race at Santa Maria will open at 4:00 p.m. Qualifying will begin at 5:00, and the first race will start at 6:00. Adult tickets are $25.00. Seniors and military get in for $23.00. For kids 6-12, it is only $5.00, and children 5 and under are free. The track is located at 1900 Hutton Road in Nipomo. The track website is https://santamariaspeedway.net/.

Friendly Tafoya is always happy to meet the fans in the pits after every race. He will sign autographs, pose for photos, and sell his beautiful 2024 team shirts. For fans who cannot attend the races, the team shirts are available at www.specialty-fasteners.com.

Fans can follow Tafoya on Instagram @eddietafoya51.

Tafoya and the #51T team would like to thank Specialty Fasteners, Inland Rigging, BR Motorsports, King Racing Products, Gasper Transportation, CMI Precision Machining, Owen’s Insurance Services, Keen Concrete, DRC Chassis, and Rider Racing Engines for supporting its racing program.

GIANT FIREWORKS SHOW THIS SATURDAY!

By Erik List
Alger, WA - It's time to light up the sky this Saturday, July 6th, at Skagit Speedway for the Les Schwab Tire Centers Fireworks Show. After Mother Nature rained on our parade last Saturday, June 29th, this weekend, we bring the 360 Sprint Cars, Skagit Aggregates IMCA Modifieds, and the Hornets out to play.
After two weekends off, the 360 Sprint Cars are back for their fourth time this year and the last time before the Bob's Burgers & Brew Summer Nationals on July 26-27. Through the previous three races, Trey Starks has won them all, the Puyallup native has dominated Skagit Speedway behind the wheel of a 360. Starks leads the 360s points title with 372 total points. Cam Smith is next closest at 304 points, and Colby Thornhill sits third with 296 points.
For the fifth time this year, the Skagit Aggregates IMCA Modifieds are back at Skagit Speedway. Their last appearance was Saturday, June 15th (the weekend before Dirt Cup), and Rick Smith got the win. Through those four races, Tyson Blood got the first two wins of the year, James Bundy has one, and Smith has the most recent win. With Blood's two wins, he sits atop the points with 158, Jeff Westergard (who has put together a strong rookie year in the Modifieds) sits second, and Adam Holtrop is in third. Westergard has three top-five finishes and a top-ten through four features despite no race wins.
After getting rained shortened last weekend, the Hornets are back to try it again this weekend. Ian Buck and Wyatt Covert won the two heat races for the Hornets last weekend. The top three points have stayed the same, with Brian Michelson leading the way with Colin Sims and Scott Henry behind. Michelson is still a perfect two-for-two in features contested at Skagit Speedway.

Tony Jackson to Step Away From 410 Sprint Car Competition While Focusing on Super Sportsman and Family
Newville, PA – July 3, 2024

by Justin Snyder / Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Mgmt

Effective immediately, Tony Jackson has made the decision to step away from 410 Sprint Car Racing in the Scott Hess Racing no. 88 for the time being. While he will vacate the seat of the 410, Jackson will continue to drive for the team in the Super Sportsman ranks.

“I’m not quitting by any means, but I have some vacation planned and this is a good time to take a step back and take a breather” said Jackson, “We already kind of had a break planned, but this is a good time to try and reevaluate our program and see if we can’t get ourselves back on track as a team.”

Most recently, Jackson scored an 18th place finish on Friday during the Pennsylvania Speedweek opener for the team at Williams Grove Speedway, but failed to qualify for the A-main at BAPS on Sunday after finishing 14th in a B-main,

“When you have so much success in one division and then you go to the next one you expect to get your butt kicked,” said Jackson. “But when you go to a place where I’ve had so much success in BAPS and frankly just struggle, as a driver knowing we have the equipment and knowledge, it really weighs on you and that’s where I’m at.”

Following Jackson’s decision to step away from the 410 Sprint Car, National Sprint Car Hall of Fame driver Lance Dewease piloted the car at Grandview Speedway on Tuesday night. Putting a veteran driver like Dewease in the car allowed for the team to gauge any potential issues that may be plaguing the rookie upstart 410 Sprint Car operation.

Dewease qualified 19th quickest out of 24 cars in attendance with a fastest lap of 13.020 seconds, before finishing sixth in a heat race to earn the 16th starting position for the A-main. He then advanced two positions in the feature to finish 14th.

Car owner Scott Hess appreciates Dewease stepping in for the night and believes the insight the veteran provided could be essential in the team’s future in the 410 ranks.

“I wish Tony was driving the car, but having the opportunity to put Lance in the car really came at the last minute and we figured he could maybe tell us what we’ve been doing wrong,” said Hess. “It took all of warmups and time trials for Lance to diagnose a throttle issue that may have been hurting us most the season in terms of speed and I can’t thank him enough for stepping in and lending a hand in a pinch.”

Jackson added that he was also grateful for the advice and knowledge Dewease provided.

“Lance is one of the best to ever do this deal, so having him in the car for a night or so was a no brainer in terms of helping us figure things out,” said Jackson. “He didn’t come in looking to take my ride and I was rooting for the team to do well and maybe find something. I wouldn’t say the results were what we hoped for, but the team learned from it and that’s what needs to happen to get us going.”

Hess emphasized that Jackson was still his driver, and he believes firmly in the talent the rookie upstart has. He noted that he was currently preparing the Sportsman for Jackson to run on Saturday at BAPS Motor Speedway and that any future plans for Jackson in the 410 would fully be in the hands of Jackson himself. He also added that there might be future opportunities for Dewease to run the car for a handful of shows if his schedule permitted.

“Look, I started this deal up because I believed in Tony and I still believe in Tony,” said Hess. “We’ve been friends for quite a while and coming off winning a ton of races in the Sportsman, I’m not sure any of us imagined just how hard this would be to break into the 410 ranks. “

“I want to be sure Tony’s heart is in this and I want to make sure I’m doing what’s best for me and our sponsors and Tony regarding his family and career. Hopefully we can win a bunch of Sportsman races together and maybe Tony decides he wants to get back in the 410. If not, we’ll give Lance a few more cracks at things and we’ll just kind of play it by ear going forward.”

For Jackson, he’s incredibly grateful for all that Hess has done for him and continues to do for him and He’ll continue to strive for wins and success no matter what division he’s competing in.

“I just want to get back to having fun and competing for wins,” he said. “I put a lot of pressure on myself and Scott has kept telling me not to do that and just go out and drive relaxed. We’ll take some time for the family, try and win a few Sportsman shows, and the goal is to get back in the 410 and hopefully be better because of it.”

Justyn Cox and Bates-Hamilton Racing secure 8th in Chico with Petaluma up next

By Gary Thomas

Chico, CA…Justyn Cox and Bates-Hamilton Racing are locked and loaded to take on Petaluma Speedway this Saturday night, following an eighth-place result in Chico this past weekend with the NARC 410 Sprint Cars.

“The David Tarter Memorial in Chico was definitely a curveball of a night for sure,” Cox said. “There were some positives though and a lot of good learning in the main event for when we get back there for Gold Cup in August.”

The Clarksburg driver began the evening at Silver Dollar Speedway last Saturday by qualifying second in his group, before scoring a third-place finish in his heat race aboard the Lippert Construction/ Mozingo Construction/ Dan Ewart Sales/ VinylTech PVC Pipe No. 42x.

After a runner up result in the Dash, it placed him on the outside of the front row in the 35-lap feature.

“We timed in well and had a good run in both the heat and the dash,” he stated. “I fell to third on the start of the main and just rode around trying to figure out what the car liked, but I couldn’t get it dialed in perfectly.”

Once settling into third, Cox ran there for several laps, until getting over the edge slightly on a restart, dropping a few spots. The 30-year-old driver continued however and crossed the stripe in eighth at the checkered flag, continuing his string of consistent efforts as of late.

Cox spoke about trying to make things happen on a challenging surface during the main event. “On a restart everyone went to the bottom, and I tried to be a superhero on the cushion, but it bit me like it did many others. That allowed me to slip back a few spots, but I’m here to try my best and go forward. Sometimes that just doesn’t work out.”

Next up for Cox and Bates-Hamilton Racing is a trip to Petaluma Speedway for the $5,200-to-win David Lindt Memorial this Saturday.

“I’m excited for Petaluma on Saturday since the 42x has a great baseline at that track,” commented Cox, who continues to stand 3rd in the NARC standings. “I’m getting better there with each race, so I look forward to having the chance at trying to pull off another win. We will be racing with heavy hearts after losing our buddy Davy Thomas and I want nothing more than to win in his honor.”

Reinhardt Heating Up With Podium, Two Top 10’s During Early PA Speedweek Action

The first three months of the 2024 season were trying for Kyle Reinhardt. After a career-best 410 sprint car season in 2023 in which he recorded three wins and thirty top-ten finishes in sixty one races, the Neptune City, NJ native expected to pick up where he left off when he opened the new season.

It hasn’t worked out that way. The first dozen races resulted in just three top ten finishes, the best being a 7th.

The car that had been so good to him last year got dinged a bit late in the year and it just wasn’t the same after repairs were made over the winter. As Pennsylvania Speedweek approached, Reinhardt pulled out a fresh frame and things started to improve. Then during the opening weekend of Speedweek, Chris Shuttlesworth rejoined the team to turn the wrenches.

Now, four races into the Speedweek series, he has clicked off three top ten finishes, including a podium at BAPS Motor Speedway in the Capitol Custom Coaches & Trailers, Coors Banquet Beer, E-Z-GO Golf Cars, Henry’s Wrecker Service No.91.

BACK ON TRACK

On opening night of PA Speedweek at Williams Grove, Reinhardt qualified 8th in Group B and logged a 3rd place finish in his heat race, putting him 14th on the grid for the main event.

The night’s finale was a confidence-builder for Reinhardt. Despite getting crossed up early and slipping back as far as 18th, he drove back to a 10th-place finish by the end of the night.

Saturday night’s event at Lincoln Speedway rained out just after time trials, sending the series on to night three at BAPS Motor Speedway.

Everything clicked for Reinhardt on Sunday night. He timed 4th quick in Group B and went on to lead every lap to win his heat.

Drawing the pole for the feature certainly isn’t a bad thing, although it may have worked against Reinhardt Sunday. The high side was the fast way around BAPS Motor Speedway and he was lining up on the low side.

At the completion of lap one, Reinhardt had settled into third and was working to reel Danny Dietrich and Anthony Macri in. When the dust settled after thirty laps, the top trio remained the same. It was Reinhardt’s first podium of the season.

Back at Lincoln on Monday night with 36 teams on hand, Reinhardt qualified 13th in Group B, then pushed forward to a 4th place finish in his heat race after starting 7th. He went on to log a 13th place finish in the A-main.

On night five of PA Speedweek at Grandview Speedway, Reinhardt’s night got off to a tough start. He timed 17th overall and finished 5th in his heat race.

It was in the feature that Reinhardt bounced back. Showing that he made the right adjustments, he advanced six spots to an 8th place finish.

“We are finding speed and consistency this week. We’re looking forward to continuing to build on that.”, Reinhardt said.

Reinhardt currently sits 6th in the PA Speedweek points with five races remaining.

Rules Update Posted For 2025 Chili Bowl Nationals

Bryan Hulbert – TULSA, Okla (July 3, 2024) Announcing prior to the 2024 Chili Bowl Nationals powered by NOS Energy Drink the use of common frame rules utilized by Midget sanctioning bodies for the 2025 event, the final set of rules for the Chili Bowl has been published.

Estenson Wins at Brown County Speedway and Hard Charges at Casino Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - WATERTOWN, S.D. (July 2, 2024) - Tim Estenson produced his second feature triumph of the season last Friday during his debut at Brown County Speedway.

Estenson advanced from third to second place in a heat race before winning the Buffalo Wild Wings Northern Outlaw Sprint Association and Midwest Sprint Touring Series 410 Sprint Cars main event at the dirt track in Aberdeen, S.D.

"In the heat race the track was pretty slick with a lot of character," he said. "We were the last in the feature redraw and were fortunate the No. 3 was left so we started the feature third.

"There was a rain delay for a while. They reworked the track and got it smoothed out. It was hammer down. We got into second in the first couple laps. I was running behind the leader and he got into a lapped car so we inherited the lead and set sail from there. I just tried to keep my nose clean and get through traffic the best I could. We were able to capitalize and get the win."

The weekend concluded on Sunday at Casino Speedway.

"It was super slick and technical in the heat race," he said. "We were running second for about half the heat race before we were able to take the lead. Then a lapped car spun out in turn four. I pinched it and spun to avoid when another car ran into us, which crunched the header and popped the right rear lead. Unfortunately, the heat race buried us, but that's racing."

Estenson rebounded from the DNF in the heat race by winning the B Main from fifth and charging from 21 st to seventh in the NOSA Series and MSTS 410 Sprint Cars sanctioned A Main. That earned the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars.

"We had a really good car, but early the car was hopping and bouncing," he said. "We had a red with about eight laps to go. I guess the left rear shock came off the arm so I raced most of it without the left rear shock. We were able to drive up to seventh by the end of it so that was pretty good given where we started and the problem we had with the car."

Estenson has a tripleheader on tap this weekend with the POWRi 410 Outlaw Sprints at Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo., on Friday and Saturday before heading to Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., on Sunday. Estenson ranks third in the championship standings at Huset's Speedway.

QUICK RESULTS -

June 28 - Brown County Speedway in Aberdeen, S.D. - Heat race: 2 (3); Feature: 1 (3).

June 30 - Casino Speedway in Watertown, S.D. - Heat race: DNF (3); B Main: 1 (5); Feature: 7 (21).

Hagar Nets 10 th Top 10 of Season on Tricky Track During USCS Series Event

Inside Line Promotions - WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. (July 2, 2024) - Derek Hagar posted his 10 th top-10 result of the season last Saturday at Riverside International Speedway.

Hagar advanced from sixth to fourth place in a heat race and from 10 th to seventh place in the USCS Series main event.

"The pill draw was man's best friend," he said. "If you could start up front and on the outside you were gold. The track was so hard and there was a lot of water on it so it stayed greasy all night. It finally started moving down about halfway through the feature and it was wide open from there on out. I passed three cars on the start and that was all she wrote."

The result snapped a six-race streak of podium finishes.

Hagar gets the opportunity to bounce back quickly with USCS Series races this Wednesday at Magnolia Motor Speedway in Columbus, Miss., and Thursday at Clayhill Motorsports Park in Atwood, Tenn.

"We've had good success at both of those tracks," he said. "I love Magnolia and am really looking forward to getting back there. The weather isn't looking as good for Thursday. Our goal is to race, but we'll play it by ear to see what Mother Nature throws at us."

QUICK RESULTS -

June 29 - Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark. - Heat race: 4 (6); Feature: 7 (10).

Mallett Grateful for Opportunity to Shine With Brandon Anderson Motorsports

Inside Line Promotions - TULSA, Okla. (July 2, 2024) - Jordon Mallett wrapped up his driving duties for Brandon Anderson Motorsports last weekend during an ASCS National Tour doubleheader at Tulsa Speedway.

Mallett ended his time behind the wheel with one win, three top fives and seven top 10s in eight feature races.

"I'm grateful for the phone call and the opportunity to drive for them," he said. "They brought me in and treated me like family. This sport is a vicious sport and it's really cool when things work out and you can mesh with people. I felt we did a really good job of all meshing from the start. They gave us the equipment and resources to not only be fast and competitive each night, but to win. I felt I was able to do the job I was tasked with to the best of my ability. It's not easy to jump in someone else's car and to only have one night in eight races of finishing outside the top 10 showed how well we gelled."

Last weekend got off to a frustrating start with Mallett qualifying seventh quickest in his group. He placed seventh in a heat race and fifth in the B Main to transfer into the back of the main event. Mallett gained a pair of positions in the feature to end 18th.

"It was one of those nights when we just didn't seem to be good," he said. "We timed in terrible and just struggled to find balance at that track. It happens from time to time.

"That was the worst qualifying I'd had with the team. We hadn't qualified outside the top two in our group other than once or twice. We were buried and had to start at the back in all the races. That place is tough to pass on so if you get behind in qualifying you're really in a bad spot. Once our qualifying result was off like it was we knew it was going to be an uphill battle all night and it was."

Mallett rebounded on Saturday as he qualified third quickest in his group and won a heat race to advance into the dash. Unfortunately, rain wiped out the remainder of the racing program.

"It's a very humbling sport and I've learned you have to have a short memory," he said. "We worked on it Saturday and changed up quite a bit of stuff on the race car knowing what we'd dealt with the night before. We came out swinging more at our normal stride. I felt we had a really, really good race car and then the rain came. That was a disappointing way to end the night because I felt we had a car that could contend."

Mallett plans to take this weekend off before he returns to his sprint car July 13 at Greenville Speedway in Greenville, Miss., with the ASCS Hurricane Area Super Sprints.

QUICK RESULTS -

June 28 - Tulsa Speedway in Tulsa, Okla. - Qualifying: 7; Heat race: 7 (6); B Main: 5 (6); Feature: 18 (20).

Alex Pokorski tallies third top-10, eyes Eagle River jaunt

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) July 2, 2024 – After exhibiting plenty of speed right of the box, Alex Pokorski held tight throughout the night to secure his third top-10 A-main showing of the 2024 season behind the wheel of the No, 4 Akright Auto Racing Team car in a 25-lap Akright Auto Plymouth Dirt Track Racing-Midwest Sprint Car Association 360 Sprint Car main event at The Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, June 29.

The fifth-year 360 Sprint Car competitor opened the night by ripping off the overall fastest time in group qualifying among the 24 cars in the field with a lap of 13.363 seconds around the historic third-mile clay oval.

The 2023 Plymouth Dirt Track Racing and Midwest Sprint Car Association Most Improved Award recipient started fourth and came home second in the first 10-lap High Limit heat race.

Pokorski rolled off eighth in the 25-lap MSA-PDTR 360 Sprint Car A-main and hung around the top-10 on a tricky dry, slick and dusty racing surface throughout the event. The West Bend, Wis. driver rallied in the latter stages of the race to secure a seventh-place finish in a race won by Robbie Pribnow.

The result was Pokorski’s third top-10 A-main showing in five MSA-PDTR 360 Sprint Car main events during the 2024 campaign.

“The night started very well and we had a solid car all night,” Pokorski said. “Unfortunately, doing well early starts us mid-pack for the feature. I wish we were able to get past a few more cars in the feature, but that's racing sometimes.”

Paul Pokorski made his third start of the 2024 season behind the wheel of Spyder Akright’s 53A car.

Paul qualified 16th overall with a lap of 13.986 seconds before starting and finishing seventh in the first eight-lap PDTR 360 Sprint Car heat race. The 32nd-year driver then topped off the night by advancing three positions from the 17th starting position to finish 14th in the 25-lap main event.

“I thought the car was okay in qualifying in the heat race,” Paul said. “It wasn’t spot on, but it was okay. We made pretty big changes throughout the night and the crew worked really hard. The track was kind of different than most other nights and I thought pretty good considering all the rain we’ve had.”

The Alex Pokorski-Akright Auto Racing Team is set to make its second trip to Eagle River Speedway for an Akright Auto Midwest Sprint Car Association 360 Sprint Car main event on Saturday, July 6 in Eagle River, Wis.

Also on the card are 600 Micro Sprints, 300 Junior Sprints, B Mods and the Milwaukee Stock Car Association Vintage Modifieds.

Spectator gates open at 5 p.m. with racing scheduled to start at 6 p.m.

The Alex Pokorski-Akright Auto Racing Team will then return to The Plymouth Dirt Track on Saturday, July 13 for the annual Plymouth Racing Wall of Fame Induction Night Program, during which the names of eight drivers (Fuzzy Fassbender, Donny Goeden, Dave Haag, Steve Hoffmann, Randy Markwardt, Pete Ostrowski, Steve Schad and K.J. Skelton), three track workers (Lee Glomski, John Laack and Bill Krueger) and the McMullen racing family will be added to the track’s Wall of Fame.

In addition, the PDTR-MSA 360 Sprint Cars, the Super Six Late Model Series, Grand Nationals and B Mods will also be on the card.

Grandstand gates open at 4:30 p.m. with qualifying at 5:30 p.m. and racing at 6 p.m.

Kaleb Johnson Drives Forward During Double Duty at Knoxville Raceway

Inside Line Promotions - KNOXVILLE, Iowa (July 2, 2024) - Kaleb Johnson nearly recorded a pair of top-10 results at Knoxville Raceway last Saturday when he did double duty at 'The Sprint Car Capital of the World.'

Johnson's best outing came in his own 410ci winged sprint car. He qualified 12 th quickest and advanced from third to second place in a heat race and from 10 th to eighth place in the main event.

"I felt it went pretty well," he said. "Even though we went out late in qualifying we laid down a decent lap. We had a decent starting spot in the heat race and got by a car to run second. That put us starting 10 th in the feature.

"I didn't get the greatest start. And I missed the bottom a couple of times and let a few cars get by me. I used a late-race caution to my advantage to get back to eighth. All in all, it was a solid night."

Johnson put together a strong charge while piloting a 360ci winged sprint car for Dennis Gainey.

"We qualified pretty well, but mistakes happen and we had the wrong tire on so we were disqualified," he said. "I passed a couple of cars in the heat race. Then in the B Main I passed a couple and lucked out with some cautions."

Johnson maneuvered from ninth to sixth place in a heat race and from ninth to third place in the B Main to transfer into the rear of the A Main.

"In the feature I was able to use the top, middle and bottom to pass cars when I needed," he said. "Going from 23 rd to 11 th isn't bad considering we got no points for qualifying."

The run that gained a dozen spots was the second-most positions improved in the race.

Johnson will return to Knoxville Raceway this Saturday to drive for Gainey before he ventures to Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., on Sunday to pilot his sprint car. Johnson currently leads the championship standings at the high-banked track.

QUICK RESULTS -

June 29 - Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa (410 sprint car) - Qualifying: 12; Heat race: 2 (3); Feature: 8 (10).

Starks Aiming for Fourth Straight 360 Sprint Car Win at Skagit During Final Summer Nationals Tune-Up

Inside Line Promotions - ALGER, Wash. (July 2, 2024) - Trey Starks is heading to Skagit Speedway this Saturday for one last tune-up for the Bob's Burgers & Brew Summer Nationals.

The marquee event that pays $15,000 to win - one of the biggest payouts across the country for 360ci winged sprint cars - will be hosted by the track during the final weekend of July.

"We'll be using this Saturday as our last tune-up for the Summer Nationals," he said. "We've had good success at the track this season, especially in our 360 car. Hopefully we can put together another strong night to head into Summer Nationals on a roll."

Starks has won all three 360 sprint car races at Skagit Speedway this season to build a 68-point lead in the championship standings.

He competed in a 410 race at the track last Saturday, setting quick time in qualifying before advancing from fourth to third place in a heat race. Starks drew the outside front row for the main event.

"We had an initial start, which I got the lead," he said. "Unfortunately, there was a caution before a lap was completed. We had a second start. Me and another driver were racing hard on the top when I got over the cushion and spun around. The caution came out and we went to the back. On the third start of the race, and I haven't figured out how it happened, but we went to take off and right before we came out of turn four the car in front of me waved his hand and pulled out of the way so I pulled under him. We went into turn one and the car in front of me either stopped or was going caution speed. I climbed his left rear and tipped over. Then it started pouring."

The feature was rained out before it was completed.

QUICK RESULTS -

June 29 - Skagit Speedway in Alger, Wash. - Qualifying: 1; Heat race: 3 (4); Feature: Rained Out (2).

15 races, 8 wins, 12 top fives, 12 top 10s, 14 top 15s, 14 top 20s

Big Game Motorsports and Gravel Record Podium at Cedar Lake Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - NEW RICHMOND, Wis. (July 2, 2024) - Big Game Motorsports driver David Gravel captured his 17 th podium result of the season last Saturday during the World of Outlaws Independence Spectacular hosted by Cedar Lake Speedway.

The two-race weekend was cut in half after Friday's program rained out. Gravel was efficient throughout Saturday's show. He qualified third quickest and won a heat race - his 18 th of the season - to advance into the dash. Gravel then finished where he started - second - to garner the outside front row starting position in the main event.

"I thought it went well drawing a late pill and qualifying well," he said. "We won the heat race and got a good dash draw. The track had some character. We had some flashes of doing some good things, but came up a little bit short."

Gravel battled between second and third throughout the race before ending third.

"There's a couple of little things I could have done on the track different and the same with the car," he said. "Logan (Schuchart) was really fast in open air. I felt we could keep up on the bottom, but it just seemed we couldn't make as much speed on the top.

"It's always good to be on the podium. We didn't lead any laps, but we were close. It was a decent podium. We're not ecstatic over it, but we're not upset as well."

Gravel will take this weekend off before resuming World of Outlaws competition July 10 at Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver Dam, Wis., during the Jim "JB" Boyd Memorial and July 12-13 at Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wis., during the World of Outlaws Federated Auto Parts Larry Hillerud Memorial Badger 40.

Gravel currently leads the World of Outlaws championship standings by 58 points.

Post pads notebook with solid PDTR run

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) July 2, 2024 – Negotiating a tricky track surface with the poise of a seasoned veteran gave Randy Post the opportunity to add to his stockpile of valued information for future implementation in Akright Auto Plymouth Dirt Track Racing – Midwest Sprint Car Association 360 Sprint Car competition at The Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, June 29.

In his third full PDTR program of the 2024 campaign, Post opened the night by timing in 19th in the 24-car field with a lap of 14.288 seconds.

The third-year Sprint Car racer then started fifth and placed seventh in the third PDTR-MSA eight-lap heat race, which was contested on a significantly undulating track surface.

“Qualifying went well,” Post said. “The car was a touch loose. We could have adjusted better for the track. The heat race was a mess. There were cars almost spinning all over on the start. That caused us to lose a spot right away, but the car felt good.”

After a track rework yielded a more level racing surface, the Oostburg, Wis. competitor started and finished 19th in the 25-lap PDTR-MSA main event, which was won by Robbie Pribnow.

“The feature went really well for it being a one-lane track,” Post said. “We tried finding different lines that worked. However, we just lost spots as soon as we came off the bottom. I would like to give the track crew huge props for helping to make the track smoother than it was in the heats. They did the best they could with the time they had and I appreciate them.”

The Randy Post Racing Team is set to take a short break from competition to address chassis and motor issues.

“We won’t be heading to Eagle River for the MSA race this Saturday,” he said. “I found out on Sunday morning that our chassis broke on Saturday night. So, we are going to get it up to R&H and see if we can have it back in time before the July 13th race at Plymouth. We also have some motor issues that need to be addressed before the next race.”

After taking the upcoming weekend off, the Randy Post Racing team is scheduled to return to action at The Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, July 13 for the annual Plymouth Racing Wall of Fame Induction Night Program, during which the names of eight drivers (Fuzzy Fassbender, Donny Goeden, Dave Haag, Steve Hoffmann, Randy Markwardt, Pete Ostrowski, Steve Schad and K.J. Skelton), three track workers (Lee Glomski, John Laack and Bill Krueger) and the McMullen racing family will be added to the track’s Wall of Fame.

In addition, the PDTR-MSA 360 Sprint Cars, the Super Six Late Model Series, Grand Nationals and B Mods will also be on the card.

Grandstand gates open at 4:30 p.m. with qualifying at 5:30 p.m. and racing at 6 p.m.

Sponsorship partners and supporters of Randy Post and the 2024 Randy Post Racing Team include Luedtke Electric, Sunset Auto, Akright Auto, Oostburg Automotive and Progress Manufacturing Inc.

The Randy Post Racing pit crew members are Kirby and Nicole Post, Tiffany and Thomas Chamberlain, Brendan Ostrowski, Erin Schneider, Colton Chamberlain, Heidi Haver and the Kaat Racing family.

Tanner Carrick 7th at Silver Dollar Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA: Returning to action in California over the weekend, Tanner Carrick recorded a seventh-place finish at Silver Dollar Speedway on Friday night before a part in Saturday’s feature resulted in a DNF.

“We just have had some bad luck the last couple of weeks that we really need to shake,” Tanner Carrick said. “We have a fast racecar, but some things are just out of your control.”

Kicking the week off at the Brownell/Herseth Memorial on Friday night, Carrick timed the CVC/Cemex/CA Waterfowl backed No. 83T entry in third quickest in qualifying time trials.

Lining up in the second row of his heat race, Carrick’s third place finish moved him into the Dash where a third place finish there lined him up in the second row of the feature event.

A wild start to the feature, saw the field eventually start the race single file after a couple of stoppages prior to completing one lap. Once underway, Carrick jumped ito a second but a misstep saw him get out of shape and slip all the way back to 11th.

Once he regrouped, the Lincoln, CA pilot worked into ninth by the seventh lap and settled in as we worked around the tricky surface. Getting into eighth at the halfway point of the feature event, Carrick continued to battle and worked into seventh with just a few laps left in the feature event.

Hanging on to seventh, Carrick took the checkered flag with a Top-10 and turned his attention to Saturday’s David Tarter Memorial.

With 30 cars on hand for Saturday’s program, Carrick by timing in 11th quickest in his qualifying flight before a fourth place finish in his heat race locked him directly into the 35-lap feature event.

Taking the green flag from the 15th starting position, Carrick’s feature event was ultimately cut short. Getting off to a good start Carrick was able to make up ground early as he worked around the slick racing surface. Taking advantage of a couple of early cautions, Carrick was up into the Top-10 when an open red flag was needed on the 15th lap.

Continuing to run in 10th, Carrick worked his way into ninth on the 22nd lap, and just as he did, issues arose on the left front corner of his car, and his night came to an end 12-laps before the finish.

“Unfortuantely the studs ripped off the left front brake caliper during Saturday’s feature,” Tanner Carrick said. “I felt good all night, but that is just some of the bad luck we have been dealing with.

Tanner Carrick would like to thank CVC, Cemex, California Waterfowl, Interstate Oil, D.R. Horton, Conti, Harris and Sloan, Hanson Truss, TC Guide Service, Eddie’s Lincoln Auto Body, Simpson Strong-Tie, A&A Concrete Supply, Kaeding Performance, and Arai for their continued support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts: 34, Wins: 4, Top 5’s: 17, Top 10’s: 22

ON TAP: Carrick will drop the 360ci powerplant in this week as he heads to Placerville Speedway on Thursday night.

July 1, 2024 – Lakeland, Florida – The BG Products Southern Sprint Car Shootout Series today announced their 2025 schedule.

A multi-day co-sanctioned event with the Must See Sprint Series Presented by Perfit-Parts returns in 2025 and moves to Auburndale Speedway March 15, 2025. The initial co-sanction between the two series early this year proved popular and both series have made an agreement for the cooperation to continue in 2025.

Details and purse format for this special event will be announced shortly. It is expected to be an epic North / South Shootout event much like it was in the spring, bringing MSR’s national drivers to battle the sunshine state drivers for ultimate bragging rights.

Austin Torgerson 10th at Placerville Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA- Returning to Placerville Speedway on Saturday night after taking part in the Dave Bradway Memorial at the beginning of the month, Austin Torgerson put together a solid showing as he scored a 10th place finish.

With 23 cars checking in and taking part in the track’s annual Kid’s Bike Night, Torgerson got the night underway by timing in 15th fastest in time trials.

Lining up fifth in his heat race, the Glendale, AZ driver hooked up in a torrid battle with his younger brother, Ashton who ran ahead of him in fourth. Working the low side, Torgerson pulled even with his brother, but did not quite have the drive he needed to overtake the position.

Finishing fifth, Torgerson then turned his attention to the 25-lap feature event where he was slated to take the green flag from 15th starting spot.

From the eighth row, Torgerson drover a very smart race on the extremely slick Placerville Speedway surface.

Taking advantage of a lap 2 tangle that took place in front of him, Torgerson was quickly into 11th when the race went back to green.

Slipping back to 13th during an extended green flag run, He was able to race back into 11th by the 14th lap. Continuing to fight for track position, Torgerson broke into the Top-10 with just six laps left in the race.

Settling into 10th as the final laps clicked off, Torgerson took the checkered flag and capped the weekend off in 10th.

ON TAP: Austin Torgerson will get back to Micro Sprint action this week as he will take part in CA Speedweek which kicks off on Tuesday. The week long event is in Lemoore, CA to open before heading to Visalia, CA on Wednesday night and then to Stockton, CA on Friday and Saturday.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-36, Wins-6, Top 5’s-11, Top 10’s-15

Tony Gomes Tallies 6th Place Finish at Placerville Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA- Getting back to the famed bullring in Placerville, CA, Tony Gomes and C&M Motorsports had another solid night on the hill as Gomes scored a sixth place finish.

“It wasn’t the best night for us, it wasn’t bad by any means, but we all want to finish a few spots better,” Tony Gomes said. “I am really happy that we have a quick turnaround this week and we get to try again on Thursday and then hopefully again on Saturday night.”

With 23 cars on hand for John Padjen Kids Bike Night, Gomes kicked the night off by timing the Lund Construction/Anrak/Sam Rhodes backed No. 7c in fourth quickest in qualifying time trials.

A three-heat program was utilized on Saturday night, and Gomes found himself on the front row of his heat race where he needed to score a win to earn a spot in the redraw.

Getting the jump, the red flag was needed for a rollover, and it turned into an extended stoppage as a medical emergency in the grandstands needed the attention of the EMT’s.

Once the action resumed, Gomes was back on the throttle as he powered to the lead and never looked back. Picking up the win, he earned a spot in the redraw where the six pill put him in the third row of the 25-lap feature.

Moving into fourth after a lap two incident took out a pair of drivers that were running ahead of him, Gomes flirted with taking over the third position but settled into fourth.

Slipping back to fifth, Gomes fell to sixth on a lap 11 restart and then found himself on a battle for the Top-Five as he swapped the spot the next few laps. Losing the battle, Gomes settled into sixth and fell to seventh on the 23rd lap but was right back up into sixth a lap later as he chased after Ashton Torgerson and Austin Wood.

Making a couple late attempts to get into the Top-Five, Gomes capped his night off with a sixth place finish.

“My guys definitely worked hard to give us the best shot in the feature, we were just a little off,” Gomes said. “Big thanks to Cody, John, and Bobby for always working so hard, busting their butts. Also, thanks to Cody and Mandi for their continued support. Excited to get right back up to Placerville on Thursday.”

Andy Forsberg Pockets Pair of Runner Up Finishes Over the Weekend

PETERSEN MEDIA: Andy Forsberg and the PHR Racing team had another strong weekend in Northern California. Running in both 410ci and 360ci competition over the weekend, the Auburn, CA driver recorded two second place finishes.

“Overall it was another strong weekend for our race team,” Andy Forsberg said. “Friday night the track was a little interesting with it being super slick on one end and very heavy on the other. You basically had to gear up for one end or other and hang on at the opposite end.”

Heading to Chico, CA on Friday night for the Brownell/Herseth Memorial, Forsberg bolted his 410ci powerplant in and kicked the night off by timing in sixth fastest in time trials.

Needing to pick up the win to qualify for the redraw, Forsberg’s second place finish lined the Meridian Cameras/Pacific Highway Rentals/Oroville Tax entry up eighth in the feature event.

When the feature came to life, Forsberg was able to begin working his way forward as he raced into the Top-5 by the fifth lap, and was into fourth on the seventh stanza. Running in fourth for 10-laps, Forsberg worked into second on the 17th lap and began to chase after Cole Macedo.

Closing in on Macedo in lapped traffic as the laps wound down, Forsberg was able to erase is gap but didn’t have enough time to mount a challenge for the top spot as he ended up with a second place finish.

Heading back to the Auburn, CA shop, the team swapped to their 360ci car and headed to Placerville Speedway on Saturday for weekly points action.

Timing in eighth fastest in time trials, Forsberg again needed to win his heat race to earn a berth in the redraw, but another second place finish put him seventh on the starting grid for the 25-lap finale.

A good start to the race saw Forsberg jump into fourth on the opening lap, and then a tangle with a few cars ahead of him jumped him into third with one lap scored officially.

Moving into second when the race came back to life, Forsberg chased after Bubba DeCaires until the yellow flew on the 10th lap and bunched the field back up.

The ensuing restart was unkind to Forsberg as he dropped a few spots and slipped back to sixth.

Getting his elbows up, Forsberg worked his way back forward and got into third on the 21st lap.

With his sights set back on DeCaires for second, a move on the final lap of the race saw him take second where he went on to finish.

“We had a really good start in the feature, but then there was a restart right around the halfway point that saw him basically give up all those spots we picked up in the early part of the race,” Forsberg said. “Fortunately, we had a really good car and I was able to make up the lost ground and we ended up getting back to a second place finish.”

Andy Forsberg and PHR Racing would like to thank Meridian Cameras, Pacific Highway Rentals, Oroville Tax, Wilkie Masonry, Western Traffic Supply, PitStopUSA, Red Line Oil, FK Rod Ends, Autism Awareness, Parking and Transportation Group, Western Featherlite, 1st Vanguard, Highway Specialty Co., and KBJ Catering for their continued support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-19, Wins-2, Top 5’s-9, Top 10’s-10

ON TAP: Forsberg has a busy week ahead as he will be at Marysville Raceway on Wednesday, Placerville Speedway on Thursday, and then back at Placerville Speedway on Saturday.

ODESSA, Mo.

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

SHEBOYGAN, Wis.

Westfall, ace of Ray Marshall’s Buckeye Machine Fabricators Inc, Hempy Water, DPI Ink, Wix Filters, Rod End Supply, Allstar Performance, No. 33M non-wing sprinter, kicked-off his weekend at the Macon bullring with a 16th-place score on Friday, June 28.

“A so-so weekend for the team. We wanted a little bit more out of our performances, especially after coming off of a win. But we’ll work to get a better start on our July schedule on Wednesday,” Matt Westfall explained. “Regardless, a big thanks to Ray Marshall and all of Ray Marshall Motorsports. He allows us to go out and do this every weekend and I’m privileged to be a part of it.”

Brown scores $6,000 at Knoxville; Will return to Sprint Car Capital of the World July 6
By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. (July 1, 2024) – Brown’s weekend may have commenced on the wrong foot, but things improved in a hurry for the Higginsville, Missouri, native, eventually concluding the last weekend of June with a triumph at the Sprint Car Capital of the World on Saturday, June 29. Brown, ace of his own Casey’s, FVP, Andy’s Frozen Custard, Impact Signs Awnings and Wraps, Mt. Dew Overdrive, Ditzfeld Transfer, Hawk Hunting, No. 21 sprint car, launched his winning effort from fifth on the grid, taking command from Emerson Axsom following a restart with four to go.

Although it was Brown’s first win of the season, the victory was the 66th of his career at Knoxville Raceway, kicking off preliminary competition with the second-fastest qualifying time followed by a runner-up finish during heat race competition. Impressive enough, the team was forced to swap engines after qualifying time trials – a slight hiccup in a solid evening effort.

As noted, Brown’s weekend got underway on the wrong foot, eventually missing main event competition with High Limit Racing at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Missouri, on Friday, June 28.

“Overall, a great night for this Casey’s | FVP team. Our preliminary effort was almost flawless, and although we were forced to swap engines after qualifying, the guys were ready and prepared and did a phenomenal job in getting that completed,” Brown stated. “The car was really maneuverable all night long. A little bit of chaos there at the end with Austin (McCarl) and Chase (Randall) getting together, but that set up the late restart that we needed. The plan was to do the opposite of what Emerson Axsom did..he went to the bottom and I ripped the top to get it done.

“That was a much needed win for this team. It wasn’t an easy start to the season, but the guys continued to come to work with a great attitude. Chad Morgan, Justin Lawyer, Dustin Brenneman, Lath Hicks…super proud of their efforts and I’m excited to give Knoxville another go this weekend.”

Wilson fifth at Attica; Moler, Beaver Dam, Wilmot on deck

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

BENTON RIDGE, Ohio (July 1, 2024) – Initially, Greg Wilson and Greg Wilson Racing had planned on joining the Greatest Show On Dirt at Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wisconsin, on Friday and Saturday, June 28-29, but with transporter issues still a threatening factor, the team elected to stay closer to home, and their decision certainly paid off, concluding their Friday visit to Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio, with another top-five.

Wilson, ace of his own Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics Warehousing & Transportation, DNC Hydraulics, No. W20 sprint car, finished fifth in his top-five appearance, improving three positions after starting from the outside of row four. The former All Star champion, as well as former Ohio Sprint Speedweek champion, now owns seven top-five appearances on the season, simultaneously increasing his top-ten count to nine.

Wilson’s preliminary effort commenced with a runner-up performance during heat race competition.

“I think once we get these bugs worked out of our truck and trailer, we should be distraction free,” Wilson admitted. “Regardless, things worked out well on Friday. The plan is to hit the road a little bit these next few weeks beginning with a trip down to Moler on Friday. The plan is to head to Wisconsin immediately after and join the Outlaws at Beaver Dam and Wilmot.”

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

MITCHELLVILLE, Iowa (July 1, 2024) – Chase Randall and TKS Motorsports’ June slate is officially complete, and although their last start of the month concluded short of the goal – getting caught up in a late race incident that negated their podium potential – there were plenty of shining moments, one of which a heat race victory, kicking off the evening with the eighth-fastest qualifying time overall.

Randall, driver of the Albaugh – Your Alternative, Iowa Barnstormers, Des Moines Industrial Products, Jersey Freeze Ice Cream, AL Driveline, TJ Forged, No. 2KS sprinter, was third at the time of the aforementioned incident, collected by a spinning Austin McCarl.

In addition, Randall and TKS Motorsports joined High Limit Racing in Lake Ozark Speedway’s annual Beach Brawl on June 26; they were scored 16th.

“Not the way we wanted to end our month, but we know we were good on Saturday. Those things happen, and unfortunately, they are most likely going to happen again. Regardless, we’re excited to roll into the month of July,” Troy Renfro, owner of TKS Motorsports, explained. “We are very proud of Chase and what he’s been able to accomplish so far this year. We’re ready to move ahead and aim big.”

Andrews ninth in Attica visit; Full AFCS weekend ahead

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

SANDUSKY, Ohio (July 1, 2024) – Back-to-back Attica Raceway Park starts resulted in back-to-back Attica Raceway Park top-ten finishes for Chris Andrews and Chris Andrews Racing, continuing their top-ten streak with a ninth-place score on Friday, June 28.

Andrews, a former two-time Attica Raceway Park track champion and ace of his own Ohio Truck Sales, OTS Truck Centers, Fleet Capital, Cintas, Kenworth of Cleveland, No. 15C sprint car, improved two stops to achieve his top-ten outcome, kicking off preliminary competition with the fifth-fastest time of 30 entries, racing on to finish third in his respective heat race.

Unfortunately, Mother Nature ruined any chances of repeat success on Saturday; the event was eventually canceled.

“Things are improving and we’re excited about that. Still short of where we want to be, but progress is good and we’ll continue to improve,” Andrews noted. “Just hats off to everyone who plays a part in this team. It’s been a struggle to build momentum, but you have to start somewhere. We’ll head into the AFCS pair with hopes of continuing this forward progress.”

ON DECK: Chris Andrews and Chris Andrews Racing will continue their 2024 campaign with a full AFCS weekend at Attica Raceway Park and Fremont Speedway on Friday and Saturday, July 5-6.

In addition, Reutzel finished fifth during the 410 sprint car portion of Saturday’s program, commencing competition from one spot better. The Clute, Texas, native now owns 18 top-five scores on the season, increasing his win total to seven since the start of the year.

“The track was absolutely phenomenal,” said Reutzel. “It was the best track all year, so maybe that will shut all the crybabies up who have been (complaining) about the track all year. The Dunkin’s do a great job, and you can’t tell me otherwise.”

Empire Super Sprints CNY Speedweek Kicks Off Wednesday

By Curtis Berleue (LaFargeville, NY) | Each season, one of the most anticipated events on the Empire Super Sprints schedule is the CNY Speedweek. Consisting of five nights of action in a row at five different tracks, it is one of the most grueling yet rewarding weeks of the season for 360 sprint car drivers in the northeast.

This year’s version will kick off on Wednesday, July 3 at the Can-Am Speedway in LaFargeville, NY. Just minutes from the Canadian border, the 4/10-mile oval is the traditional CNY Speedweek kick-off venue. Last year, Jordan Poirier sat in victory lane to start the week.

The following night, Thursday July 4, the tour will head south to the Utica-Rome Speedway. While this is the first trip of the season to Utica-Rome, three ESS events were at the track last year. In 2023, Paulie Colagiovanni, Danny Varin and Matt Farnham all found victory lane at the Vernon, NY facility.

Friday night, July 5, will see the second for three scheduled ESS events in 2024 at the Brewerton Speedway in Brewerton, NY. Earlier this season, it was Danny Varin who sat in victory lane. After the action on Friday evening, drivers and crews can look forward to the annual pit party.

One night later, the stars and cars of the Empire Super Sprints will head just a few minutes up the road to the Fulton Speedway for night number four on the week, on Saturday July 6. Two ESS events have already been completed at Fulton in 2024, with Jason Barney picking up the season opener on April 26, and the Memorial Day weekend event on May 25th falling to rain.

Rounding out the week will be the first of two stops in 2024 at the Weedsport Speedway in Weedsport, NY. Local modified ace Larry Wight has been tough to beat in a sprint car at the 3/8-mile venue in recent years, having picked up the two most recent A-Mains held in 2022 and 2023.

Each event on the CNY Speedweek calendar will see a boosted purse, with the winner earning a cool $2,500. Special CNY Speedweek merchandise will be available to purchase at the ESS apparel trailer in limited supply at each track throughout the week. Additional information for each night, including admission prices and an order of events, can be found on each track’s website/social media pages, along with on the Empire Super Sprints social media pages.

For the latest news, information, and schedule updates regarding the Empire Super Sprints be sure to check the series website (www.EmpireSuperSprints.com) and follow along on Facebook (Empire Super Sprints), Twitter (@ESSprints) and Instagram (@empiresupersprints).

In his first return to Wisconsin this year, Balog finished eighth at Beaver Dam Raceway.

DYER MOTORSPORTS BAKERSFIELD SPEEDWAY AND PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY RESULTS

(Yucca Valley, CA, June 27, 2024) After a tough weekend in the California Lightning Spring Car Series race at the Bakersfield Speedway, Jeff Dyer headed to Perris Auto Speedway for last Saturday night’s Avanti Windows and Doors USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series race. However, his night ended under a strange circumstance. Dyer and his son Seth will have this weekend off before returning to action on July 6th at the newly reopened Santa Maria Speedway.

The prior week at Bakersfield, Jeff was in a strange ride. After he detonated an engine in the #4 car at Ventura, six-time series champion Bobby Michnowicz loaned him his backup car for the race at the “Okie Bowl.” Seth, 17, was in his familiar #4JR. The teen, who presently owns family bragging rights in CLS, came into the event fourth in points. He was the seventh-fastest qualifier on the night with a lap of 15.937. Jeff, who was having some issues with his loner ride, timed in at 15.971.

For the second weekend in a row, Seth won his heat race. Jeff was matched against his youngest offspring in the same race, and placed third, directly behind his car owner, Michnowicz.

When the field rolled onto the racetrack for the main event at Bakersfield, Seth was on the pole for the second straight time. Due to his time in qualifying, Jeff started ninth. Seth sailed into the lead at the onset and set a blistering pace. Meanwhile, behind him, Jeff began putting on a show. Slicing and dicing his way from the back, he was in the top five on lap two. However, his night would come to a screeching halt on the third circuit when his engine, which was running too lean, slowed drastically, and he pulled into the infield. That saddled the California Highway Patrol officer with a frustrating 10th-place finish.

With Jeff on the sidelines for the duration, it was up to Seth to fly the family flag. He did just that. Like his win at the Imperial Raceway last October, he simply ran away from the field. By the end of the fifth lap, he had about a 1/3 straightaway advantage over the second-place car. However, the runner-up started inching closer to him on lap seven. Going into turn one on the 10th circuit, Seth’s car slowed dramatically and he coasted to a stop due to his engine dropping a valve. Instead of potentially bagging his initial win of the year, he ended up finishing ninth.

Last Saturday at Perris, Jeff was running his 410 car in the USAC/CRA Series. Things did not start out the way he wanted when his car jumped out of gear on his first qualifying lap, and he pulled into the pits. By the time he rolled back into staging, three cars were ahead of him. He would have gotten both of his laps immediately if it had only been two. Thus, he was only given one lap. Driving with one hand on the steering wheel and the other holding the car in gear, he ended up 21st with a time of 18.596 .

Despite his qualifying time, Jeff placed fourth in his heat race and started 20th in the main. That is when the night unraveled. The temperature at the track in the afternoon was over 100 degrees, and the wind was blowing. The wind kept on blowing until after the main started, and the temperature was still in the low 80s. Conditions ended up being very dusty.

While his car was good, as evidenced in his heat race and at the start of the main, Jeff decided to pull in after[i] 14 laps due to the conditions. He ended up finishing 19th.

Dyer Motorsports gets this Saturday off but will return to action on July 6th at the Santa Maria Speedway. The show will include both the USAC/CRA Series and the California Lightning Sprints. Jeff will be racing the 410 with USAC/CRA for sure. He is confident that both of the lightning sprint car engines will be repaired and ready to go for the show. If only one is ready, it will go in Seth’s car, as he is still ranked fourth in CLS points.

The father-son duo from Yucca Valley, California last appeared at Santa Maria with the CLS on August 6th, 2022. Jeff finished 13th in the main, and Seth was one spot behind in 14th. Jeff's last appearance at the track with USAC/CRA was on July 3rd, 2021, and he placed 13th.

In 2024, the following marketing partners will help keep the Dyers on track. Dependable Machine Inc., Haircuts By Susie, Jobu Racing, LBA Investigations, Straight Time Stirrups, Justice Brothers, Fonseca Racing, Specialty Fasteners, and Blud Racing Lubricants. If you would like to be a part of Dyer Motorsports in 2024, call (760) 550-7237 or send an email to mailto:dyermotorsports4@gmail.com.

Jeff is racing in memory of his grandparents, Glenn, and Beverly Sels, throughout the 2024 season.

BACK TO BACK 410 WEEKENDS! The KarMART CJDR 410’s celebrate Armed Forces Night!

By Erik List

After an exciting weekend for the 52nd Annual Jim Raper Memorial Super Dirt Cup, the KarMart 410 Sprint Cars are back again for another fun-filled weekend this Saturday, June 29th, for Armed Forces Night -- members of the Armed Forces get in for just $5. The Sportsman Sprint Cars and the Hornets are joining the 410 Sprint Cars this weekend. After 40-plus Sprint Cars took to Skagit Speedway last weekend, June 20-22, the 900 horse-powered machines are back this weekend. Trey Starks has won the previous two weekly 410 races last dating back to June 1st, giving him three total 410 wins at Skagit Speedway this year. Diving into the weekly points battle, Starks leads over Jason Solwold, who has moved into second place ahead of Colby Thornhill, who's in third, and Robbie Price, who has dropped to fourth. Solwold was the highest finishing local driver on Saturday night of Dirt Cup finishing sixth. Thornhill finished seventh and Jesse Schlotfeldt rounded out the top ten, Starks finished 11th. The last time the Sportsman Sprint Cars hit the track at Skagit Speedway, Levi Hillier became the fifth different driver to win a feature through five races this season. The win was Hillier's first at Skagit Speedway. The 14-year-old made the pass for the lead on lap 18 of the feature and went on to lead the rest of the 25-lap race. In three features contested in the Sportsman Sprint Division for Hillier, he has finished in the top five every time. Kai Dixon leads the championship points battle over Alden Ostrom and Jayden Whitney. Through only two races at Skagit Speedway in the Hornets Division, Brian Michelson is a perfect two for two. They last hit the track on June 1st, during College and Kids Night. Michelson worked his way to the front from the 18th starting position in the feature. Those two wins have helped Michelson to the points lead as well. He leads over Colin Sims and Scott Henry. Follow us on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, and Snapchat @skagitspeedway so you don't miss anything! We couldn't be more excited about racing this weekend, and we hope to see you there! Pits Open: 1:00 pm Will Call opens at 3:00 pm Gates Open at 5:00 pm Hot Laps at 6:00 pm Opening Ceremonies at 7:00 pm with racing to follow Tickets are available online at https://skagitspeedway.showare.com Adults: $20 JR.

Autograph Night Coming at Tri City Raceway Park

(Franklin, PA June 27, 2024): This Sunday, Tri City Raceway Park will present a Sunday Thunder racing program with an autograph session for all divisions. “This is a perfect way for the fans to meet and greet the racers, get autographs and selfies,” said track owner Josh Shiffer. “Hopefully, all of the Thunder will be on the track, and not in the skies above,” he said with a laugh. You may remember that the June 23 program was cancelled due to storms in the area.

The autograph session will be conducted on the front stretch, so fans will not need to purchase a pit pass to get up close and personal with their favorite drivers.

Jeremy Weaver, a/k/a “Hollywood,” may still be on Cloud 9 since he earned his first career 410 Sprint Car victory on June 16. What is more, the big win put him out front in the season standings in the Krill Recycling 410 Sprint Car ranks. Weaver has some tough competition just a few points behind! Bob Felmlee is just two points back, and A.J. Flick is seven points in arrears. They are former champions at the speedway and they have also been to victory lane. Gale Ruth, Jr. is 38 points behind, so he, too, could move ahead with a good finish.

Chad Reitz still leads the point standings in the 21st Century Energy Group 358 Modifieds. He got off to a quick start this season, with a couple of wins, but Erick Rudolph has carried the loot north of the border the last two races. Eric Gabany has stepped in to replace Steve Slater while he recovers from a medical condition. Together, their consistent efforts have the team solidly in second place. Teen Hayden Holden sits in third, just 39 points from first. He, too, could move ahead with a good finish.

There is a close battle for the championship in the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks, too. Pat Fielding is the new leader after Tim Bish had some misfortunes in the last event. Josh Seippel is only two points behind, and Rod Laskey is three points out. Bobby Withling, Tim Bish, and Charlie McMillen are also within shooting distance. So, that division will be one to watch closely as the season moves into the second half.

The 4 Your Car Connection RUSH Sprint Cars will be back in action this Sunday. They were scheduled to be off last week due to a schedule conflict. John Mollick’s win on June 16 moved him to the points lead. The winner in the RUSH opener, Blaze Myers, had a poor finish in that event, and he slipped to fifth in the rankings.

The regular event ticket pricing will apply for this event. Adults will be admitted for $15. Seniors (ages 62 and up), students (ages 11 to 16), and military will be admitted for $13, all with proper identification, of course. Children (age 10 and under) will be admitted for free. The pit passes will be $35, with the exception of the infants (age 2 and under). They will be admitted to the pits for $15.

The pit gates will open at 2 p.m. Spectator gates will open at 4 p.m. Racing will start at 6 p.m.

If you cannot make it to the track this week, the July 7 program is one that all Sprint Car fans will love. The Krill Recycling 410 Sprints and the 4 Your Car Connection Spronts will be joined by the 305 Sprints. Plus, the make-up feature for the 305s will be held! In addition to the four, count ‘em four, Sprint races the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks will be in action. And, there will be fireworks, too!

Coming soon will be some special events for the Penn Ohio Pro Stocks Series (July 14), a demolition derby (July 20), Kids Bike Races (July 21), FAST on Dirt Sprints (July 28, ULMS Late Models (August 11), the BRP Modified Tour (August 18), and Fan Appreciation Night (August 25). And, don’t forget the Oil Region Labor Day Classic )august 31 and September 1).

The divisional sponsors of Tri City Raceway Park for 2024 are: Krill Recycling, LLC (410 Sprint Cars), 21st Centure Energy Group (358 Modifieds), Hovis Auto & Truck Supply (Pro Stocks), and 4 Your Car Connection (RUSH Sprint Cars).

All competitors at Tri City Raceway Park will be eligible for the Marsh Heating & Cooling Heat Race Challenge. The driver that wins the most heat races over the courseof the season, regardless of the class, will receive a special award.

Other marketing partners of Tri City Raceway Park for 2024 include: Erie Beer, Wab-Tec (manufacturer of locomotive engines), Schaeffer Lubricants, Keystone Transit (school buses), Blue Ox Timbers (buyers of timberland timber land management), Constable Refuse (residential and commercial garbage collectors), First Rate Realty (real estate sales), Landscape Connection (portable toilets and landscape supplies), KEI-Klapec Express Inc.

Kody Hartlaub Leads Laps, Continues To Build Momentum in Trone 39
Abbottstown, PA – June 27, 2024

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Mgmt

Kody Hartlaub opened up the month of June with two top-ten finishes for his new team, the Trone Outdoors No.39.

As the month moved on and headed towards the annual summer tradition that is Pennsylvania Speedweek, the most grueling test his team would face this season, Hartlaub and crew chief Kevin Frey were focused on continuing to fine-tune the details that would make the East Berlin driver more comfortable and further improve the team’s performance.

CONTINUING CONSISTENCY

At Williams Grove Speedway on June 14th, Hartlaub moved forward in his heat race and started inside the top ten in the main event.

The night had the makings of another top ten, however Hartlaub slipped back a few spots out of the top ten in the early going, then late in the race the night took a turn for the worse when he got caught up in someone else’s accident. The damage ended his night early with a 16th-place finish.

The following night at Lincoln Speedway Hartlaub again moved forward in his heat race, capturing a runner-up finish and securing the 6th starting spot in the A-main.

Hartlaub charged toward the front in the early going, climbing as high as 2nd on lap nine. He slipped back, outside of the top five at the midpoint of the race and ultimately finished 7th.

CHEMISTRY

The June 21st & 22nd weekend brought the final tune-up races at Williams Grove and Lincoln before Speedweek. At ‘The Grove’ Hartlaub recorded another top-ten finish, a 9th in the final rundown.

Saturday’s race at Lincoln may have been the most telling and most valuable of Hartlaub’s first eight races in the Trone 39. He qualified 3rd quickest in the field and went on to win his heat race, but it was the A-main that provided the most valuable experience.

Hartlaub took command of the race from the pole position and remained out front for the first 24 laps of the 30-lap affair. He kept names like Wagaman, Rahmer, and Bollinger behind him.

As the race entered its final ten laps, Hartlaub was holding nearly a straightaway lead, navigating lapped traffic smoothly. With six laps remaining, he attempted to slide a lapped car that was racing in his preferred line but he couldn’t complete the pass.

Another attempt two corners later was the decision Hartlaub would later regret. The slide job killed his momentum and allowed Matt Campbell to close the gap and get by for the lead. The sequence not only stole his momentum, it also took him out of his rhythm and cost him two more spots in the final three laps to officially finish 4th.

“I know what I would do differently next time.”, Hartlaub said of the late-race decision that cost him the lead. “Inexperience bit me. Lesson learned.”

“I’m disappointed we didn’t get the win tonight but I can’t be unhappy about how we have been running only eight races in. We’re all working really well together, we’re competitive, we’re getting better every week, and we’re having fun.”

With a solid first month in the seat of the Trone No.39, Hartlaub appears ready to embark on the PA Speedweek journey. He heads into Speedweek having logged five top-ten finishes in his first eight starts aboard the Trone 39.

“We have got a really good chemistry in the shop and at the track. There has been great communication and collaboration. Kevin and I are working well together, making decisions together, and everyone involved has settled into their roles.”, Hartlaub added.

“As far as in the seat, I was worried about time trialing coming into the season because that was something we didn’t do much in 358’s and I knew it was something I would need to get good at to be competitive in a 410. Racing twice every weekend, many of them time trial shows has helped me tremendously. Not only with qualifying but with racing in general. Nothing beats seat time.”

“I take the history of this sport seriously, so being able to drive the Trone 39, which is an iconic car especially here in PA, means a lot to me and I’m going to work hard to keep this car at the front of the field for as long as I have the opportunity.”

Five drivers to watch as Kubota High Limit Diamond Classic makes its first visit to Lucas Oil Speedway

WHEATLAND, MO. (June 27, 2024) - One of the most-anticipated events of the Lucas Oil Speedway season is coming up Friday and Saturday with the inaugural Kubota High Limit Racing Diamond Classic.

Feature winners will earn $10,000 on Friday with the stakes rising to $25,000 for Saturday's main-event winner. While many of the nation's elite 410 Winged Sprint drivers will be on hand, here are five to keep an eye on:

Corey Day: The 18-year-old from Clovis, California, already was considered a rising star in the open-wheel world before he joined the Kubota High Limit series prior to the 2024 season. Day has lived up to the billing with five series feature victories, the latest of which might have been the most impressive.

Day drove from a 15th starting position to the front in just 14 laps at Wednesday's Kubota High Limit Midweek Money Series at Lake Ozark Speedway. Day led the rest of the way to earn the $20,000 prize.

It continued a huge recent stretch for Day. Last weekend, he won $79,6000 at the Dirt Cup at Skagit Speedway in Burlington, Washington. Earlier this year, he drove a late model on pavement for the first time, for JR Motorsports, and won a feature at Hickory Speedway in North Carolina.

Brad Sweet: The 38-year-old Sweet, from Grass Valley, Calif., co-owns the Kubota High Limit Series with his brother-in-law, Kyle Larson. One of the big winners in sprint-car racing for two decades, Sweet leads the Kubota High Limit points chase and has six feature wins and 24 top-10 finishes in 25 events.

The five-time World of Outlaw Sprint champion also has extensive experience driving in the NASCAR Nationwide Xfinity Series and Truck Series.

Tyler Courtney: Another long-time big name in open-wheel racing, the 30-year-old from Indianapolis sits second in Kubota High Limit points 88 behind Sweet with three feature victories in the Clauson-Marshall Racing No. 7BC.

After dominating the USAC ranks in the late 2010s with a Sprint Car and Midget championship to go along with 50-plus wins across three divisions, Courtney switched to wing racing in 2021 and quickly became one of the nation’s best.

Rico Abreu: Hailing from St. Helena, Calif., the 32-year-old Abreu has picked up two feature wins on the Kubota High Limit circuit in 2024 and stands fifth in points coming to Lucas Oil Speedway. Abreu emerged on the national scene by wining the Chili Bowl in back-to-back years, 2015 and 2016.

Abreu won four of six Kubota High Limit Midweek Madness races in 2023 and came up a close second to Kyle Larson for the points title before signing on for full-time High Limit Racing in 2024.

Ryan Timms: Another up-and-coming open-wheel star has experience finding victory lane at Lucas Oil Speedway. Ryan Timms, a 17-year-old from Oklahoma City, captured the prestigious Jesse Hockett-Daniel McMillin Memorial championship last fall, earning $10,000.

In limited action with the Kubota High Limit circuit in 2024, Timms has picked up a pair of top-10 finishes. He has eight feature wins overall this season.

TULLBORO’S EMOTION CHARGED NIGHT

FOR the Tullboro team, to say that last Saturday night’s rescheduled Queensland Titles at Maryborough Speedway was both busy and emotion charged would be quite the understatement.

In what was without a shadow of a doubt their busiest night of the 2023-24 season, the Tullboro team fielded a total of five cars across 410 and 360 Sprintcar competition, with current Australian Champion Lachlan McHugh, Brent Kratzmann - with current Supercars Champion Brodie Kostecki in the role of crew chief, youngster Bradi Owen and Jason Burton running in the 410s, and Western Australian hotshot Ryan Farrell competing in the 360s.

Apart from the hectic night planned, the Tullboro team went into the Queensland Titles with extremely heavy hearts, after the news earlier in the week that veteran crew chief and friend of the team Graham ‘Willy’ Williams, who was set to crew chief the Qld # 74 Correct Automotive supported car that McHugh was going to drive in the Queensland Title, had passed away suddenly and also another friend of the team and ex Sprintcar racer from Brisbane Tony Michell had died, too, in a separate incident. Despite the emotion, the Tullboro team decided to dedicate their Queensland Title campaigns to the memory of both Williams and Michell.

The highlight of the night was Farrell coming out on top in the Queensland 360 Sprintcar Title. After qualifying on pole position for the feature race aboard the WX # 95 Correct Automotive backed car by virtue of topping the time sheets in qualifying at the beginning of the night and then going on to win and finish second in his two heat races, the 2015 Australian 360 Sprintcar Champion used his three decades of experience throughout the 30-lap journey to inherited the lead from youngster Brodie Davis following him suffering engine issues during the middle stages and then go on to conserve his tyre wear and take out a solid victory.

In the Queensland Title for the 410 Sprintcars, the Tullboro team locked out the front row for the feature race with McHugh and Kratzmann sharing positions one and two. Both McHugh and Kratzmann started the night by being quickest in time trials and that put them in good stead for the remainder of the night after they had picked up mid-pack finishes in both of their two heat races. Come the feature race time, McHugh and Kratzmann were confident of being able to continue strong night, but a clash between the pair on the opening lap ended Kratzmann’s night prematurely with car damage and McHugh sustained a heavily damaged top wing. Despite the damage, McHugh battled hard for the rest of the 35-lap event and brought it home in third place on the podium.

Sprintcar newcomers and Tullboro team drivers Owen and Burton continued their learning curve throughout the Queensland Title, with Owen picking up his second ever heat race win and then going on to finish the feature race in eighth, while Burton ended up just outside the top 10 in the feature race in 12th.

Tullboro team owner Brodie Tulloch was pleased with the collective effort of the team throughout the Queensland Title event.

“It was certainly our biggest weekend for the whole team by fielding five cars and what made the effort even more impressive was the fact that were down a few crew members, but the team pushed on and we were rewarded with some strong results that was highlighted by Ryan’s Queensland Title win,” he commented.

“The whole team dedicated the Queensland Title campaigns to the memory of both Graham ‘Willy’ and Tony, and it was very pleasing to be able to come away from the event with our drivers flying the flag high for the team.”

The next major events for the Tullboro team and Farrell are set to be up in North Queensland for the $5,000 to win King of Kerribee at Mareeba Speedway on July 27 and then the annual Thunder in the Canefields at Cairns Speedway in North Queensland on the weekends of August 2-3 and August 9-10.

SWANSON MAKES HIS WINGED RETURN AFTER NINE YEAR HIATUS

June 25, 2024 – Holly, Michigan – Must See Racing Sprint Series Presented by Perfit-Parts officials confirmed today that pavement sprint car guru Kody Swanson is one of the first entries for the July 5 event at Birch Run Speedway in Birch Run, Michigan. The single day event will also feature the Maxima Racing Oils Midwest Lights Series.

It will be the first time Swanson has competed in a winged asphalt sprint car since 2015.It is no surprise Swanson is set to return to winged asphalt sprint car competition as it is quickly becoming very popular, and big paydays are becoming regular occurrences, for this sector of the sport.

Swanson is no stranger to MSR competition. In fact, he has one career victory with the series, but it wasn’t in winged competition. Swanson was victorious in the lone MSR non-winged event held at Indianapolis Raceway Park during the 2020 Indy Summer Nationals. Swanson’s last appearance in MSR winged competition occurred on May 23, 2012, at Anderson (IN) Speedway where he was runner-up to winner Jason Blonde.

Swanson will be aboard the potent Dick Myers owned #50m nicknamed the ‘Mopar Missile’. The Myers owned car is in the midst of a two-race podium finish. Canadian Aaron Willison found victory with the car this past Saturday at Owosso Speedway and was runner-up at Lancaster, New York June1 with the car.

“I had a couple conversations with Dick Myers in the spring about possibly running his car a time or two this summer during casual conversations. He knew I had an interest in doing a few winged shows this year. It was a matter of everything fitting together so we could come out and have some fun together this summer.

“He was the first guy who hired me to drive his car that I wasn’t close with already. I think he was the first guy to fire me too “laughs Swanson. “It’s all part of racing and I’m fortunate enough to have had a long career.”

“I think the last time I ran a winged pavement car was at Toledo in June of 2015, so it’s been a while” explained Swanson. “We blew up running second for Tom Brewer” Swanson remembers. “We qualified well and came from sixth to second pretty quickly. We ended up losing the motor and did a half spin in front of Aaron Pierce. We collected him and that was the last of that.”

Swanson does have one career winged pavement victory with the now defunct Hoosier Outlaw Sprint Series (HOSS) at Jones, Michigan in 2013 driving for Brewer. He’s hoping his most recent start will have the success he found at Jones, Michigan in 2013.

“At that point in time, I had a lot of opportunities with Tom Brewer to run some winged stuff. For one reason or another we always had tough luck or didn’t get the finish we wanted. But at that time, I was trying not to just be a pavement guy. In 2014 I was still chasing that first USAC Silver Crown title”.

“Instead of running so many winged races I ended up trying to run more dirt sprint car races. It really helped me with what I was missing to be a championship USAC Silver Crown contender. For a few years the schedule was seventy percent dirt. That’s why it’s been so long since I’ve really done any winged stuff. I have a lot of interest in winged stuff now, knowing that the two Open Wheel Showdown events are coming up at the end of the year.”
“I’m excited about it. I certainly haven’t done a lot of it, or a lot of it lately. I know there is an opportunity for me to get comfortable, but I need to improve. I’m excited to get that part started. If more opportunities like this come up to run that type of car, and you can do it more often, you’re only gonna get better at it. I’m excited to work with Dick again, be competitive, and tackle Must See Racing competition. Hopefully I can get caught up quickly and we can have a good day at Birch Run” finished Swanson.

Tony Jackson and Scott Hess Racing Set to Take on Four Nights of Racing During Annual PA Speedweek
By jsnyder0306 on Jun 26, 2024 01:07 pm

Newville, PA – June 26, 2024

Tony Jackson and Scott Hess Racing are set to tackle four nights of racing as part of the 2024 Pennsylvania Speedweek series. The team will compete in a pair of events at Williams Grove Speedway (Friday, June 28th and Friday, July 5th) along with stops at BAPS Motor Speedway (Sunday, June 30th) and Hagerstown Speedway (Thursday, July 4th).

The ultra-competitive series spans 10 days at seven different facilities and guarantees a minimum of $ 10,000 to win for all events. In addition to the winner’s share of race day payouts, there is a large series point fund along with a multitude of contingency prizes up for grabs at each event.

With most of Pennsylvania’s best competitors expected to at least compete in a handful of events and many outside invaders looking to cash in on the fun, Jackson and Hess will have their hands full in their rookie crack at the legendary series.

“I think Speedweek is a cool deal and it’s a good opportunity to get some laps and run for some good money,” said Jackson. “Obviously as the 10 days go on, more and more cars will be showing up, so it’s going to be a learning experience and the goal will be to get in the show at each track we head to.”

Jackson enters the historic series with some momentum on his side, as he scored a career-best second-place finish two weeks ago in 410 Sprint Car competition at ‘The Grove’ during a night that saw the Newville, PA native win a heat race and lead 20 laps of the A-main.

It’s confidence from a run like that that has Jackson anxious for what Speedweek presents.

“Anytime you can lead some laps and contend for wins, you’ve got to feel good about what you’re doing and how you’re progressing,” he said. “We’re starting to figure out Williams Grove a bit and going forward it’s going to be the bulk of our attention in the 410. I’m looking forward to two nights there and hopefully building on the gains we’ve made in qualifying and heats.”

Along with a familiar stop at BAPS, which is a place Jackson has won several times in winged and wingless sportsman competition, the team will make a trip to a bit of a wildcard in Hagerstown.

Traditionally more of a late model staple in the Central PA and Maryland racing community, the track can often throw curveballs and bring about unique winners during the series. Jackson is no different than most, as he’s only ever competed twice at the Maryland facility, picking up a win in wingless sportsman action along the way.

“We’ve had Hagerstown circled all year as we’ve got some good sponsors out that way and this gives us a chance to let them see us closer to home and hopefully, we can represent them well,” said Jackson. “Hagerstown can be slick, so it’s tough to know how our program will stack up there. I have won there once before, so I guess that’s on our side. We’re going to go in with an open mind, make some good laps, and hopefully at the end of the night we’ll be talking about a feature run.”

SEASON STATS

21 races, 0 wins, 2 top 5, 2 top 10’s, 5 top 15’s, 10 top 20’s

"SUPER SERIES" EVENT SATURDAY AT SHARON TO FEATURE "410" SPRINTS FOR $4000 TO-WIN; STOCKS, RUSH SPORTSMAN MODS & ECONO MODS ALSO IN ACTION

 June 26, 2024

By Mike Leone

(Hartford, OH)...Racing action returns to Sharon Speedway this Saturday night (June 29) with a "Super Series" event presented by Bala Management. The Hovis Auto & Truck Supply "410" Sprint Cars will highlight the program and will be joined by the Gibson Insurance Agency Pro Stocks, HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds, and the Whelen Econo Mods. It's Kams Electric Night. Hot lap/qualifying for the Sprints will begin at 6:30 p.m. followed by racing.

The "410" Sprint Cars will race for the new 2024 minimum purse structure of $4,000 to-win, $400 to-start on Saturday thanks to Bala Management in what will be the first non-sanctioned event of the season. The same format as in years past will be utilized with group qualifying to set the heat race lineups.

Sharon has completed three "410" Sprint Car events thus far in 2024 with big car counts at each one. David Gravel topped a 45-car field for his first career Sharon win on May 18 in the first of two visits by the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Cars. On June 1, central PA invader Ryan Smith won the Western PA Speedweek event for the second time in four years as 46 cars were hand. And most recently, Danny Dietrich, another member of the PA Posse, won the FAST-sanctioned Ohio Sprint Speedweek event on July 12 with 53 cars on hand!

The Gibson Insurance Agency Pro Stocks will make their fourth visit of the 95th anniversary season on Saturday night. The Pro Stocks were part of the World of Outlaws Sprint Car show when a big field of 35 cars were on hand for the 2024 opener. On that night, Christian Schneider won his first career Sharon race worth $1,000 as he became the 219th different driver to win a Pro Stock race in the history of the track. The past two Saturday nights have saw Curt J. Bish win from sixth as he's upped his career win total to 13, which is fourth amongst active racers. Twenty-four or more cars on Saturday will mean a $750 to-win feature event.

The HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds were finally able to complete their first event of 2024 last Saturday night. Kole Holden ended what was nearly a five-year winless drought at the track. The two-time track champion now has six career wins at Sharon and leads RUSH's $3,500 to-win Weekly Series Championship. Meanwhile, JC Boyer, who earned the $100 Summit Racing Equipment Hard Charger gift card last Saturday, leads the Wedge Motorsports "Route 7 Rumble" Series points, which takes into account all events at Raceway 7 and Sharon. The division's all-time winner, Chas Wolbert, has returned to the division in 2024 despite missing last Saturday night due to being on vacation, and will look to add to his 20 career victories.

The Whelen Econo Mods are back for what will be their second show of the season. The Econo Mods made their season debut on June 15 when Joe Gabrielson made a winning debut in the division. Gabrielson's victory was the 10th of his career at the Hartford, Ohio as he has nine career UMP Mod wins to his credit. Jeremy Double will try once again to break the tie with RUSH Sprint Car racer Brandon Blackshear to become the division's all-time winner at 22.

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

The Performance Bodies "Nosed Out" program will award a $100 Performance Bodies gift card redeemable only at Wedge Motorsports to a driver in the Pro Stocks or Econo Mods. The recipient amongst any of those competing divisions will be the driver that most closely beat out another competitor for any finishing position on the lead lap. Tiebreaker will be the driver with the best finishing position.

"410" Sprint Car Payoff: 1. $4,000 2. $1,500 3. $1,100 4. $800 5. $650 6. $625 7. $600 8. $575 9. $550 10. $500 11. $475 12. $450 13. $425 14. $410 15-24. $400. Tow/Non-Qualifiers $100.

There is no Sharon registration fee. One-way driver radios are mandatory; channel 454.000. AMB/MyLaps transponders are required; rentals available for $25. If you have yet to register for the 2024 season, please bring the registration form with you completed https://www.sharonspeedway.com/downloads/get.aspx?i=899241

Hartmann powers through tough four-race ‘Maverick Mayhem’ Indiana swing

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) June 26, 2024 – There were highs, there were lows and a little bit of everything in between as Austin Hartmann and the members of the 87A Hartmann Racing team tackled an ultra-challenging four-race ‘Maverick Mayhem’ weekend of 410 Sprint Car racing action co-sanctioned by the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association and Honest Abe Roofing Maverick Winged Sprint Car Series contested at four different Indiana speed plants on four consecutive nights running Thursday, June 20 through Sunday, June 23.

The “Maverick Mayhem” festivities kicked off at Lincoln Park Speedway nestled in the city of Putnamville, Ind. with a voluminous field of 55 410 Sprint Cars packing the pit area for the highly anticipated event on the 5/16th-mile banked dirt oval on Thursday, June 20.

In his Lincoln Park Speedway debut, Hartmann opened the night by qualifying 21st overall in the 55-car field with a lap of 11.812. The third-year 410 Winged Sprint Car competitor started and finished sixth in the third eight-lap IRA-Maverick heat race before opening ninth and placing seventh in the first 12-lap B main to miss transferring to the A-main by four spots.

The 87A Hartmann Racing crew then packed up and headed to another first-time track for the team, Bloomington Speedway in Bloomington, Ind., for the Kevin Huntley Memorial on Friday, June 21.

Hartmann turned in the 28th fastest overall qualifying lap in the stout 47-car field with a 10.982-second tour of the quarter-mile high-banked red clay oval. After starting fifth in the fourth 10-lap IRA-Maverick heat race, Hartmann fell back five spots to place 10th on the rapidly slicked-off racing surface.

The 2020 Midwest Sprint Car Association and Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Car Rookie of the Year Award winner then started 10th and moved up one position to come home ninth in the second 12-lap IRA-Maverick B-main to bring his night to a close.

Night No. 3 of “Maverick Mayhem” found the members of the 87A Hartmann Racing team pulling into the Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Ind. for another night of IRA-Maverick competition on the venerable and tricky quarter-mile high-banked clay oval on Saturday, June 22.

Hartmann adapted nicely to the third new track for the team in three straight nights by ripping off a lap of 12.541 seconds to place 14th overall in the stellar 51-car field.

After starting on outside of the front row in the third eight-lap IRA-Maverick heat race, Hartmann got a big jump on the start and was battling for the lead heading into turn three of the opening lap when a monstrous wheel stand exiting turn four vaulted his 87A machine into the front stretch wall to bring what appeared to have the makings of a promising night to an abrupt conclusion.

The 87A Hartmann Racing crew swiftly placed the Tri-State event in the rearview and turned their focus to preparing the team’s backup car to compete in the fourth and final installment of the four-racing “Maverick Mayhem” swing at the high-speed, half-mile Terre Haute Action Track in Terre Haute, Ind. on Sunday, June 23.

With 37 cars on hand, Hartmann registered the 12th fastest overall qualifying lap in 17.802 seconds. After launching from the third starting spot in the second eight-lap IRA-Maverick heat race, Hartmann came home fourth to secure a transfer spot into his first “Maverick Mayhem” A-main of the humblingly difficult four-race stretch.

Hartmann lined up 15th in the 24-car field and dipped four spots to place 19th in the 20-lap A-main to bring the grueling “Maverick Mayhem” mini-series to a close.

“That was a tough weekend,” Hartmann said. “We struggled during the first couple of nights and had some bad luck. We found speed at Tri-State before disaster struck in the heat race.

“The team worked hard on Sunday morning and got us ready for Terre Haute,” he said. “I knew we had to pull out a feature start to close out the weekend. We missed the setup for the A-main, but we were happy to end the night with the car in one piece. We have a lot of work ahead of us, but we’re ready to get back to racing around home this weekend at Outagamie and Beaver Dam. I’m so proud of this team for never quitting all week. They give it their all!”

Kyle Keen Prepares for First 410 PA Sprint Speedweek Competition
Port Royal, PA – June 26, 2024

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Mgmt

Kyle Keen has been grinding through the first half of his first full 410 sprint car season, racing as often as possible to gain experience and shorten the learning curve.

Central PA is not the shallow end of the pool when it comes to sprint car racing, so the journey has required a lot of patience and the ability to recognize progress isn’t measured by finishing position.

The upcoming Pennsylvania Speedweek will be another opportunity and test for the 410 rookie.

WEEKEND RECAP

Before we get to Keen’s Speedweek plans, let’s take a quick look back at the recent weekend.

As he has been almost every weekend this season, Keen signed in at Williams Grove Speedway Friday night and Port Royal Speedway Saturday night.

While the finishes may not draw headlines, Keen has been getting more and more comfortable in the Fine Line Auto Body, Hess Bid / Hess Auctioneers, Keen Parts / CorvetteParts.net, Shetron Trailers, Heishman Racing Fuels, DL Lehman Construction, Fuel Ox No.17k.

Friday night at ‘The Grove’, Keen made his 6th consecutive A-main and 10th in his first 14 attempts.

Saturday night at ‘The Speed Palace’, Keen qualified 14th in the field of 28, timing better than several veteran teams. He then went on to navigate a tough A-main and survive for a 16th-place finish.

The key takeaway is this: along the way, Keen is making shows and giving himself the chance to make as many laps as possible. Every lap is valuable seat time that provides experience. This is the year to learn and build a notebook for the future.

“I think the season so far has gone as expected. We’ve been getting humbled every week, but every week we keep on getting just a tick better. Last week was a big step for us as we qualified what we felt like was pretty well with the competition that is at port Royal right now. We out-qualified some veteran guys and I think that says a lot about how far we’ve come with the car, but as you look ahead you see how far we still have to go to be in the top 5.”, Keen shared.

“Nothing we have done on the track has been super sexy like you get with some of the younger kids that show up and jump in and go race. We’ve had to start from scratch with me as a driver and with a completely new 410 program and it’s taking time to learn the ropes of this deal. But, I wouldn’t have it any other way. We keep on grinding every week, and every week we find something we could have been better at and get just that little bit much better. I’m excited for the future of this program. Do I think it’s going to take time? Absolutely. Will it be worth it? Without a doubt.”

The upcoming Pennsylvania Speedweek will be the toughest series of races Keen has tackled in a 410 sprint car yet. He sees it as another opportunity to learn and he’s ready for the challenge.

“Right now the priority is figuring out how to race well. We are piecing together the night on the front end, but right now we are struggling with the features. These guys are on it from the time they roll the car out of the trailer. I’m excited for when we get to that point. I really want to grow this team into a professional-looking operation with results to match. I’m excited to get there and can’t thank all of our partners who help us get to where we need to be.”, Keen said with a clear tone of determination and anticipation in his voice.

Keen will tackle five nights of the upcoming Speedweek. He will kick it off this Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway’s $10,000-to-win Speedweek opener.

Dominic Scelzi Sidelined for a Couple of Weeks After Rough Crash During Dirt Cup

Inside Line Promotions - ALGER, Wash. (June 26, 2024) - Dominic Scelzi is taking the next couple of weekends off from racing to recover following a rough crash during the opening night of the Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup last Thursday.

Scelzi and a fellow competitor touched wheels going into turn one on the opening lap of a heat race, sending Scelzi into a series of flips that ended his weekend early at Skagit Speedway.

"A driver on the outside of me turned in really early and his left front was in front of my right rear," he said. "I never even saw him. It sent me flipping and it totaled the car. It was a pretty good crash."

Scelzi has bruised ribs and a minor concussion, forcing him to be sidelined to let his body heal.

"We're a good team and a strong team," he said. "I know we'll bounce back. Our summer schedule is more open now and we're going to hunt for wins."

Scelzi aims to tentatively return to racing on July 12-13 at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, Calif., during the 14 th annual Howard Kaeding Classic with the Ocean Sprints presented by Taco Bravo and the NARC 410 Sprint Car Series.

Kids Bike Night on Tap Saturday at Placerville Speedway

By Gary Thomas

Placerville, CA…The El Dorado County Fairgrounds based Placerville Speedway is excited to host one of its more anticipated events of the season, with the annual John Padjen “Kids Bike Night” presented by the Pizza Factory set to occur this Saturday June 29th.

All kids 11 and under receive free admission during John Padjen Kids Bike Night on Saturday. As is tradition, children in attendance are invited to race their bikes on the track following heat race competition. Those competing in the races must wear a helmet.

If you’re looking for a delicious pre-race meal, make sure to stop by the Pizza Factory of Placerville, Pleasant Valley, Pollock Pines, Cameron Park, Auburn, Colfax, Rocklin or Ione to support this Saturday’s presenting sponsor. Outstanding and piping hot pizza, lasagna, freshly made salads and much more are offered at the Pizza Factory.

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

This Saturday is also our way to remember former track Promoter John Padjen, who passed away in December of 2021. It was Padjen’s idea that brought about Kids Bike Night, which continues to be a mainstay at both Placerville Speedway and Chico’s Silver Dollar Speedway to this day.

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

In the early 1980’s, John Padjen came aboard Placerville Speedway to help rescue the community icon that was beginning to struggle in the way of management efforts. Already a successful motorsports promoter in Sacramento, Dixon and Chico, Padjen moved in and helped mold the foothill race facility into the successful, competitive track it is today. Padjen established a consistent Saturday night program to improve safety and visibility for both drivers and fans.

Tackling the high banked quarter mile this Saturday will be the Thompson’s Family of Dealerships Winged 360 Sprint Cars, the Mountain Democrat Ltd. Late Models, the Red Hawk Casino Pure Stocks and Mountain Democrat Mini Trucks. Auburn’s Andy Forsberg, Lincoln’s Dan Brown Jr., Oakley’s Nick Baldwin and Placerville’s Mike Miller sit atop the Sprint Car, Late Model, Pure Stock and Mini Truck standings respectively.

Tickets and Details:

Adult tickets for Kids Bike Night on Saturday June 29th cost $18, while seniors 62+, military and juniors 12-17 will be $16. Kids 11 and under are free. Purchase tickets online at https://www.eventsprout.com/event/psr-062924 or at the gate on race day. Seating is general admission on Saturday.

The pit gate will open at noon, with the front gate opening at 3pm. Happy Hour is offered when the gates open until 6pm in the grandstands featuring live music along with discounted Coors Light and Coors Original at the beer booth. The pit meeting will be held at 4:45pm with cars on track at 5:15. Hot laps, ADCO Driveline qualifying and racing will follow.

For those who can’t make it to the track, CaliDirt.TV will provide live flag-to-flag coverage of every Placerville Speedway point race this season. The live streaming service also includes each event with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour. Fans can purchase through a cost savings monthly membership or on a per race basis via https://calidirt.tv/

Justyn Cox and Bates-Hamilton Racing cap solid Dirt Cup with top-5 on Saturday

By Gary Thomas

Alger, Washington…Consistency has been the theme for Justyn Cox and Bates-Hamilton Racing as of late. This past Saturday saw Cox wrap up the Super Dirt Cup at Skagit Speedway by earning his third straight top-five effort at the event.

“Dirt Cup was a really good weekend for us,” Cox stated. “I felt like we put out a consistent car and put together smooth laps all week, which allowed us to run up front all three nights.”

Opening the 52nd annual Super Dirt Cup on Thursday, Cox timed-in eighth overall among the 48-car field. A seventh-place finish in the heat race gave him enough points to automatically move into the A-main, where he started from fourth.

A rough and tumble main event then ensued, but the 30-year-old hung strong and drove a smart race to flash under the checkered flag in fourth during a green-white-checkered restart.

Returning for the second prelim night on Friday Cox qualified 17th fastest, before finishing third in his heat race. With his point total it put the Lippert Construction/ Dan Ewart Sales/ ADS No. 42x mount on the inside of row three for the feature.

Cox once again ran a smart and calculated race, battling among the top-five during the 35-lapper. When all was said and done, he brought home a fifth-place finish at the conclusion.

Coming back on the final night, Cox won his heat race, which placed him into the pole shuffle. Following the shuffle, he started from the inside of row four during the 40-lap Dirt Cup finale. Running in sixth for a majority of the contest he made a last lap pass to cross the stripe in fifth, capping an ultra-consistent three nights at Skagit Speedway.

“Skagit is a fun track and I feel that we’ve always been sporty there,” said Cox. “Last year we didn’t get the full chance to showcase our speed, and this year everything went correct. Luckily, we were able to have a smooth, fast weekend. “I think if we had some yellows in the A-main on Saturday, we would have had a chance to race for a top-three.”

BHR gives a special thank you to Diamond Plastics & Specified Pipe, Lithia Ford, and Lithia Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Roseburg for the sponsorship of its trip to the Pacific Northwest. Also, a special thanks to Greg Hamilton for his hospitality and the use of his race shop while in Skagit. The team looks forward to coming back in August.

Next up for Cox and Bates-Hamilton Racing is a trip to Chico’s Silver Dollar Speedway this Saturday for the NARC 410 sanctioned David Tarter Memorial.

“I’m excited to get back to Chico and see what we can do,” he commented. “We’ve made some changes with the cars and I’m curious to see how it translates to the California bullrings.”

Going into the event Cox has moved to a season-high third in the NARC 410 Sprint Car Series standings.

He continued, “We had a ton of speed during our last visit to Chico and I look forward to running a good race in honor of an old friend. We all miss David Tarter, and this is always a huge event that us Outlaw Kart kids want to win.”

Newlin Records 358 Podium Finish at Grove, Takes On Port Royal in 410
Port Royal, PA – June 25, 2024

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Mgmt

Zach Newlin finally got to put a long-awaited two-race weekend under his belt for the first time during the 2024 season. He has had plenty of those in the past during his successful 305 and 358 sprint car days but when you are working to build your own 410 sprint car team, they don’t come as easily or frequently.

Friday and Saturday he doubled-up with the Mansberger Motorsports 358 and his own 410 sprint car to get some quality seat time.

QUICK RESULTS

DATE: June 21, 2024

Class: 358 Sprint Cars
Track: Williams Grove Speedway
City, State: Mechanicsburg, PA
Quick Stats: 29 cars, Heat 4th (4), A-main 3rd (1)

DATE: June 22, 2024

Class: 410 Sprint Cars
Track: Port Royal Speedway
City, State: Port Royal, PA
Quick Stats: 28 cars, Qualifying 26th, Heat 9th (9), B-main 5th (8), A-main 23rd (23)

SO CLOSE

Friday night Newlin returned to the seat of the Mansberger Motorsports 358 sprint car for his 5th race of the year in the No.21m. After starting the season with a runner-up finish, the team has battled bad draws, incidents, and handling issues as they have worked to get back to racing at the front of the pack.

Newlin kicked off the night by claiming a 4th place finish in his heat race, which was all he needed to put his team in the redraw.

For a change, luck worked in Newlin’s favor and put him on the pole for the 25-lap Summer Series main event.

From the drop of the green, Newlin found himself in 2nd and chasing leader Adam Carberry. Numerous times throughout the event the Millerstown, PA native pressured the leader but it seemed each time he was about to strike, the caution lights would come on.

Newlin tried a final charge in the closing laps but jumped the cushion and packed his right side wheels with mud. Doug Hammaker took advantage of the opportunity to slip by, dropping Newlin to a 3rd-place finish.

“Those cautions sure didn’t help us tonight. Seemed like every time I would catch Adam (Carberry) and be ready to challenge for the lead the yellow would come out.”, Newlin said of the podium run.

“I could catch him (Carberry) on entry but he was a little better off the corner than I was. After the late caution, I knew I didn’t have many laps left, so I went to the cushion to try to build up some momentum for one last shot but that bit me. I got over the cushion and packed some mud in the wheel. That gave Doug (Hammaker) the chance to get under me.”

“I have to give a shout-out to my daughter for pulling the pole in the redraw. We haven’t had much luck pulling pills this year, so it was nice to have a little luck for a change!”

DIALING IT IN

Newlin made his second appearance of the season and second in a row with his family-owned 410 sprint car at Port Royal Speedway Saturday night.

In his debut the week before, Newlin experienced electrical or ignition issues that hampered his efforts to begin to build a notebook for the Ron’s RV Sales, Butler Hill Maple Farm, Tuscarora Roofing, Dillman Hauling No.11z.

Although the team thought they had found the issue from the previous week, Newlin’s night got off to a tough start when the issue resurfaced. As a result, he ranked 26th after qualifying and finished 9th in his heat.

In the B-main things began to turn around. Newlin charged from 8th to 5th by lap two and survived a restart after a caution to claim a transfer spot and put his bright green No.11z in its first A-main of the season.

Newlin exited the feature event after just seven laps when the problem returned. He was credited with a 23rd-place finish.

“The caution in the B-main probably saved me. The car started having issues again but it settled down during the caution and then ran well after that.”, Newlin commented.

“Unfortunately it started happening again early in the A-main. We will get it figured out in the shop this week.”

UP NEXT

This weekend Newlin will climb back into the seat of the Mansberger Motorsports No.21m 358 sprint car Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway.

Newlin said the team will sit out of the upcoming Pennsylvania 410 Sprint Speedweek.

“We’re not equipped for time trial shows right now. The engine we’re running is down on horsepower compared to most of these guys. We have to be smart about when and where we race to get the most laps to develop our notebook and our program.”, Newlin shared.

Hagar Adds Two More Victories in Alabama to Bump Win Total to Half Dozen This Season

Inside Line Promotions - PHENIX CITY, Ala. (June 25, 2024) - Derek Hagar swept a weekend in Alabama with USCS Racing, giving him five feature triumphs in his last six starts and six wins in his last nine races.

"I'm feeling pretty good," he said. "Being back in our own car with that consistency feels pretty good. We're waiting on the No. 44 car to get another engine so we'll keep plugging away at our deal and hopefully keep scoring wins."

Hagar advanced from sixth to second place in a heat race to kick off the action at Buckshot Speedway in Clanton last Friday.

"We had a good car and the race track was pretty racy all night," he said. "We went from the back to second in the heat race so that put us as the high-points driver."

A fourth-place result in the dash started Hagar on the outside of the second row in the main event.

"I had a good start in the feature," he said. "The drivers in first and second got together so that put me restarting second. After that I was all over the guy for the lead. I was opening my entry trying to cross underneath him. He was doing a really good job of holding his line and making it to where I couldn't pass him. I kept working on him and working on him. I could got to the top and open my entry and then go down to carry speed on my exit. Every time I'd get a good run on him he'd be in the spot I needed to be. It was past halfway when I was able to get beside him and into the preferred lane into turn three. We got in a little traffic and he hesitated in the center of the corner and slipped up, and it was just enough I could get by him."

The victory was Hagar's fifth of the season.

He continued his winning ways on Saturday at East Alabama Motor Speedway, where he placed second in a heat race before capturing the dash and A Main.

"We were a little undergeared for the heat race and I didn't get a good start," he said. "We got a good dash draw, drawing the No. 2. We made a lot of adjustments and the car was totally different in the dash. We ended up winning it. Then we got the jump on the start of the feature and led the whole thing. The track started taking rubber around the top. Lance Moss was giving me hell. I was trying to save my tire and he wasn't. I could hear him on the top. We were coming to the checkered flag and someone blew up. I moved down and Lance got into some oil and about hit the turn four wall head on. Otherwise, I think we would have had a heck of a finish."

Hagar leads all drivers with three USCS Series wins this season.

He plans to compete this Saturday at Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark., with the USCS Series.

QUICK RESULTS -

June 21 - Buckshot Speedway in Clanton, Ala. - Heat race: 2 (6); Dash: 4 (4); Feature: 1 (4).

Estenson Joining MSTS 410 Sprint Cars for South Dakota Doubleheader

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (June 25, 2024) - Tim Estenson is competing at a pair of South Dakota dirt tracks this weekend with the Midwest Sprint Touring Series 410 Sprint Cars.

Estenson will race on Friday at Brown County Speedway in Aberdeen and on Saturday at Casino Speedway in Watertown. Friday will mark his debut at Brown County Speedway. Estenson last competed at Casino Speedway in September 2021, when he recorded a fourth-place result.

"We're looking for a podium each night," he said. "We've run with those guys and have had some success so I'm aiming to be in contention each night this weekend."

Estenson only got one night of racing in last week as rain washed out the final three rounds of the four-race BillionAuto.com Huset's High Bank Nationals presented by MENARDS at Huset's Speedway. The only night that didn't face weather was Wednesday, when Estenson qualified 22 nd quickest in his World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series group.

"It didn't help us that I drew a high pill and that buried us in qualifying," he said. "We ended up right around where we went out. It was one of those deals where it's the best of the best, too. You have to be on your game every time you hit the track. On a positive note, we turned our fastest qualifying lap at Huset's this year."

Estenson then placed eighth in a heat race before finishing second in the C Main to transfer into the back of the B Main. He gained a pair of positions to end 20 th in the consolation race.

"In the heat race the car was good, but we were in the back of the pack and it was tough to move forward," he said. "That put us in the C Main. We were able to move up a spot and transfer. Then we passed a couple of cars in the B Main, but that field was tough.

"We're hungry for more and trying to find speed and get better. Right now the center off the exit of the corners is what is fighting us. We're super close, but just need that little extra. I think we can take another step in the right direction this weekend."

QUICK RESULTS -

June 19 - Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D. - Qualifying: 22; Heat race: 8 (8); C Main: 2 (3); B Main: 20 (22).

SEASON STATS -

15 races, 1 win, 2 top fives, 6 top 10s, 10 top 15s, 11 top 20s

Tony Gomes 4th in Return to Action at Placerville Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA- Taking a couple weekends off with Placerville Speedway dark, Tony Gomes and C&M Motorsports were back in action on Saturday night and the Modesto, CA driver scored a season best fourth place finish with the team.

“It was a really good night for our team, and it felt great to be back with C&M Motorsports, but I am a little disappointed I couldn’t get the job done from our front row starting position,” Tony Gomes said.

With 24 cars in attendance for the track’s first weekly points paying event of the month, Gomes timed the Lund Construction/Anrak/Sam Rhodes backed No. 7C mount in third quickest in time trials.

Lining up in the second row of his heat race, the Modesto, CA driver took advantage of a new rule in place in 2024 as he was able to power to the win which automatically put him on the pole of the feature event in doing so.

Following a track re-work just prior to rolling out for the feature event, Gomes didn’t get the jump he hoped for when the Ron Stahl green flag was displayed to the field as he slipped back to third.

On a very racy surface, Gomes settled in and was able to race into second as he began to chase after race leader, Michael Ing, who was solidly out front but approaching the rear of the field.

Getting to Ing’s rear bumper, slower cars raced side by side in front of himself and Ing and it allowed Andy Forsberg to get by them both as it dropped Gomes back to third as they ran in heavy traffic.

Doing what he could to search for away around Ing to get into second, Gomes utltimatley lost another position to Michael Faccinto in his efforts as he capped his night off with a fourth-place finish.

“We certainly had a better car than how we ended up, and that’s on me,” Gomes added. “I am glad we are now getting into a busy part of the season so I wont have to think about this one too long and have a shot at redemption this weekend. Big thanks to Mandi and Cody for continuing to support my racing efforts with their great equipment, and also a big thanks to Cody, Bobby, and John for working so hard to put a fast car on the track.”

The C&M Motorsports team would like to thank Lund Construction, Anrak, Sam Rhodes, Alturas Tires, Swartz Diesel, Adrian Blanco Jewelry, Kings Meats, American Paving Systems, PT Shocks, Creason Enterprises, and all of their product sponsors for their continued support.

ON TAP: C&M Motorsports will be right back in action on Saturday night as they return to Placerville Speedway.

New Track Record and Sixth Place Finish Highlight Maverick Mayhem for Joel Myers Jr

PETERSEN MEDIA: Joel Myers Jr and Hayward Motorsports had another busy week as they took part of Maverick Mayhem in Indiana with the upstart Winged Maverick Sprint Car Series as well as the IRA Sprint Car Series. Running in three of the four races, a New Track Record and a sixth-place finish at Lincoln Park Speedway highlighted the week of action.

“It has been great getting to a lot of new tracks and adapting quickly,” Joel Myers Jr said. “Noah West and I have been gelling and figuring each other out and we have some good speed at these new places.”

Four-race stretch through Indiana kicked off on Thursday night at Lincoln Park Speedway in Putnamville, IN. The Sebastopol, CA driver got off to a great start as he established a New Track Record at the bullring aboard the SHITI Coolers/Eddie Gillstrap Motors backed No. 19 entry.

Running second in his heat race, Myers Jr was locked into the feature event where he took the green flag from the seventh starting position. Getting a good start to the feature event, Myers Jr was up into fourth on the first lap, but as action moved quickly on the short track, he was back to sixth on the seventh lap.

Working around the LPS surface, Myers Jr searched both high and low as he ran well inside the Top-10. When the feature event drew to a close, Myers Jr capped the opening night of Maverick Mayhem off with a sixth place finish.

Friday night the scene shifted to Bloomington Speedway in Bloomington, IN where Myers Jr timed in 12th fastest in time trials before advancing from sixth to fourth in his heat race and again locking into the feature event.

Taking the green flag from the ninth row, Myers Jr night was cut short as he got upside down on the second lap leading to extensive damage.

Going over the wreckage, the team ultimately made the decision to skip Saturday’s event to put their spare car together for Sunday’s event in Terre Haute, IN.

Getting off to a sluggish start at The Action Track, Myers Jr and company went to work to made adjustments for their heat race. Going from ninth to seventh in his heat, Myers Jr moved into the ‘B’ where he lined up back in 10th.

Having a great run on the famed ½ mile, Myers Jr worked his way up to third and punched his ticket inot the feature event.

Lining up 22nd on the starting grid for the 20-lap feature event, Myers Jr continued his surge forward when the feature came to life.

Working into 16th in just five laps, Myers Jr was in 14th when the cross flags were displayed to field.

Continuing to fight forward, the 18-year-old was in 11th on the 14th lap, and made a brief appearance in the Top-10 by lap 16.

Falling back to 12th with three laps left in the race, Myers Jr was able to work into the 11th spot on the 19th lap where he went on to cap his night off.

“Aside from qualifying Sunday night, we were really good on a really tricky track,” Myers Jr said. “It definitely gives you confidence to have speed and move forward getting to these tracks for the first time, and it has us all excited as we continue to progress. A big thank you to Brodie Hayward and everyone that is associated with this team.”

Joel Myers Jr Racing would like to thank All About Fire Protection, Hi-Plains Building Division, DirtDudes Excavating, Carbon Safety, System 1 Ignition, Weld, FK Rod Ends, Blud Lubricants, Smith Ti, Culvert Ops, Economy Plumbing, Cartronics, NorCal Powersports, Y2K Gaming, Shark Racing Engines, Lucas Oil, Vaider, Walker Performance Filtration, ShopRico.Com, Tiner Hirst Enterprise, Kaeding Performance, Triple X Race Co., and Ogio, for their continued support.

Andy Forsberg Storms to 2nd Win of 2024 Season

PETERSEN MEDIA: Saturday night at Placerville Speedway, Andy Forsberg had his elbows up on the slick ¼ mile bullring as he charged form his eighth starting position to capture his second win of the 2024 season.

“Saturday night we had 24 cars show up for Fan Appreciation night, and I thought the night went really well,” Andy Forsberg said. “It was the week after the El Dorado County Fair so it’s always a toss up with what we will get with the crowd and the track surface because how abused it gets but Scott Russell did a great job all week, and the fans showed up despite the high temps.”

With 24 cars on hand Saturday night, the Auburn, CA driver got off to a solid start as he timed the Meridian Cameras/Pacific Highway Rentals/Oroville Tax backed No. 92 in fifth quickest in qualifying time trials.

Moving into heat race competition, Forsberg lined up on the front row and needed to pick up the win the guarantee himself a spot in the nightly redraw.

Getting the jump, Forsberg looked strong in the eight lap race as he raced to the win and garnered a berth in the redraw where he didn’t quite have the luck he needed as the eight placed him in the fourth row of the 25-lap feature event.

With the track getting dry and slick as the night went on as well as the night featuring triple digit heat, a pre-race track rework took place and gave the surface some juice for the impending feature event.

When the race went green, Forsberg began his journey to the top spot as he was able to quickly break into the Top-Five. Running in fourth, Forsberg was able to move into third as the leaders got into traffic, and on the 13th lap he made a power move on the exit of turn two that saw him go to the outside and drive by the lead duo to take over the race’s top spot.

Out in front, Forsberg continued to set a torrid pace as he kept the field at bay. Leading the final 12 laps, Forsberg raced on to score his second win of the season which also marked his 71st career triumph at Placerville Speedway.

“It was a fun night at the track,” Forsberg said. “I feel like we have gotten our ducks in a row the last couple of months, and with the stupid stuff not happening we have been in contention night in and night out.”

Andy Forsberg and PHR Racing would like to thank Meridian Cameras, Pacific Highway Rentals, Oroville Tax, Wilkie Masonry, Western Traffic Supply, PitStopUSA, Red Line Oil, FK Rod Ends, Autism Awareness, Parking and Transportation Group, Western Featherlite, 1st Vanguard, Highway Specialty Co., and KBJ Catering for their continued support.

Cole Macedo Lands on Podium at Super Dirt Cup


PETERSEN MEDIA- Despite having tough luck during the first two nights of the Jim Raper Memorial Super Dirt Cup, Cole Macedo and Tarlton Motorsports put themselves in a good position for Saturday night’s finale where Macedo raced his way to a third-place finish at the prestigious event at Skagit Speedway.

“We had a fast car all week, and I am glad we were able to come away with a good finish on Saturday night,” Cole Macedo said. “We had a good shot at finishing second, but traffic was tricky and we ended up scoring a third place finish.”

Getting collected in a late race tangle on Thursday night, and then dealing with an issue with his fire suppression system on Friday night, the Tarlton Motorsports team was able to get Macedo out of the work area each time and get him on track so he could score as many event points as possible.

Sitting 7th in points heading into Championship Saturday, Macedo lined up on the front row of his heat race and powered to the win. With the heat win to his credit, the Lemoore, CA driver was locked into the 40-lap feature event where he rolled off of the starting grid from the sixth position aboard the Tarlton and Son Inc./Complete Parts and Equipment Solutions/Executive Auto Sales backed no. 21 entry.

When the feature event came to life, Macedo quickly moved into fourth as he chased after the likes of Zeb Wise, Corey Day, and Justin Sanders. Moving into third on the eighth lap, the action picked up as the leaders got into traffic and created an epic battle for the second spot.

Racing into second on the 17th lap, Macedo and Wise waged war on each other as they played a high-speed game of chess racing through slower traffic.

Slipping back to third officially on the 20th lap, Macedo kept him in his crosshairs as he worked around the famed bullring in the pacific northwest.

Taking a couple shots at Wise late in the feature, Macedo brough a busy stretch with the Tarlton Motorsports team to a close with a third-place finish.

“My guys did an incredible job all week of getting us back on track to get points to be in a good spot for the big show on Saturday night,” Macedo said. “Things didn’t go our way, but when it counted, we were right there. Thanks to the Tarlton family for allowing us to go on this trip, and the Dyson family and all of our partners for continuing to support this race team.”

Tarlton Motorsports would like to thank Tarlton and Son Inc., Complete Parts & Equipment Solutions, Executive Auto Sales, Durst, Tarlton Estate and Asset Management, Bandy and Associates, FK Shocks, FK Rod Ends, Willwood Brakes, Vortex Wings, and High Performance Lubricants for their support.

Huset's Speedway Management Thanks First Responders and Neighbors for Assistance During Flooding Last Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (June 24, 2024) - Huset's Speedway management extends its most sincere gratitude to the fans, teams and sponsors that supported the BillionAuto.com Huset's High Bank Nationals presented by MENARDS as well as to the first responders and local neighbors who helped during the severe flooding that postponed the event last weekend.

Mother Nature refused to cooperate all week with multiple days of rain leading into one of the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series crown jewel events. The weather cleared enough to get in Wednesday's Huset's Hustle opener, which showcased 55 of the top sprint car drivers in the nation, before intense rain invaded the area late Wednesday night and continued through Saturday.

Several inches of rain drenched the already saturated ground, which created flooding that began in the early hours of Friday morning. At 2 a.m. that morning, Huset's Speedway management, the Huset's Speedway security team and local law enforcement went door to door to each campsite and race team on the property notifying campers of the potential for flooding, and advising that campers vacate the area. At 3 a.m., the National Weather Service issued a Flash Flood Warning for Minnehana County.

Huset's Speedway management is grateful for the support of the Brandon and Split Rock Fire and Rescue teams for their help evacuating the balance of people who remained in their campers Friday morning. Also, a huge thank you is extended to the Minnehana County Sheriff's Office and the Brandon Police Department for their assistance along with many good Samaritans who brought equipment to help campers recover their personal belongings.

Flooding has started to slowly recede at the track and Huset's Speedway management is assessing the property damage this week.

An announcement about the rescheduling of the final night of the Huset's Hustle as well as the two nights of the BillionAuto.com Huset's High Bank Nationals presented by MENARDS that were postponed last weekend will be released this week.

The next scheduled weekly program at Huset's Speedway is July 7 for Metro Construction Night featuring the Midwest Sprint Touring Series 410 Sprint Cars and Cressman Sanitation 410 Outlaw Sprint Cars, the Nordstrom's Automotive Late Model Street Stocks and the Wyffels Hybrids RaceSaver Sprint Car Series.

Mallett Produces First ASCS National Tour Victory of the Season

Inside Line Promotions - LOCUST GROVE, Ark. (June 24, 2024) - Jordon Mallett executed a last-lap pass to score his first ASCS National Tour triumph of the season last Saturday at Batesville Motor Speedway.

It marked his second career win with the ASCS National Tour and the first for Brandon Anderson Motorsports - a team that Mallett has been driving for during the last month.

"The way I see it is it took about five races or so for us to get comfortable and consistent," Mallett said. "We were up and down. Like we were fast, but sometimes not in the feature. At the ASCS National Tour Speedweek finale we finally put ourselves in a good spot as we were fast at the end just like we were in the beginning. Then at Batesville on Saturday we showed we could be good from hot laps all the way through. I was comfortable and we figured out some things and made smart decisions. It was a cumulative effort over the last month."

Mallett qualified second quickest in his group before he won a heat race.

"I don't have a lot of laps around Batesville even though it's close to home," he said. "I'd only been there a couple of times. We were good about any time we got on the track. The team worked hard all week and gave me a good race car from when we unloaded. We were quickest in hot laps by a good margin. We were faster in qualifying than in hot laps, but weren't quick time in our group. Then we won the heat race to make sure we could get in the dash since we couldn't fall back on our qualifying time. We had a really good race car and kept fine-tuning it. In the dash we ran third so we started the feature third. We kept working at the car and watching the track.

"We had a really good start to the feature. I knew (Matt) Covington would go to the top and I thought Sam (Hafertepe Jr.) would slide to protect. I got myself to second and jumped to the top. Sam set a really fast pace and we were able to match him. I didn't know if we were the only ones matching him until after the race. The first 15 laps me and Sam had five seconds on third place. We had a lot of flexibility in the car as I was able to run the top or the bottom or float through the middle. When we got to traffic the dirty air didn't bother us as we were consistent. We had a restart with 10 laps to go. When you're running second you get the opportunity to search around a lot. I was able to maintain with Sam while I was searching the track. I knew that if we could maintain while searching we had a pretty good race car.

"When we came to the restart I had a really good start. He rolled through the middle to the top. I ducked to the bottom and found a strip of moisture and was able to take the lead for a lap. That track is a momentum race track. Once he got wound up through the middle he drove around me before I could get up to get my own momentum wound up. I jumped up and kept pace with him. Toward the end my car kept getting better. With about three laps to go I was noticing there were a couple of spots kinda high off both corners that had started to clean off quickly. I felt that could take a little bit of rubber.

"Coming to the white flag lap through turns three and four I thought we only had one more shot. I was able to really enter the corner hard and charge the corner. I went into the middle and hit that clean spot on exit. I gained really quick from five car lengths back to right behind him at the white flag. We both went into turn one at the middle to top of the track. I followed him in and got myself in my own clean air. I slowed my car down and got square and shot up and cleared him by the time we got to the back straightaway. I went through turns three and four and charged it really hard and caught that strip coming off."

The last-lap pass resulted in Mallett's first ASCS National Tour win since October 2021.

"I'm really pleased to get back to Victory Lane with the ASCS National Tour and to be a part of the Anderson's first National win," he said. "It was also really meaningful to be able to pass Sam, who is one of the best 360 racers in the country, to earn the victory."

Mallett will venture to Tulsa Speedway in Tulsa, Okla., this Friday and Saturday for the ASCS National Series Dirt Down in T-Town with the ASCS National Tour. He placed fifth at the track in July 2022 during his only appearance.

Kaleb Johnson Shows Speed Early During World of Outlaws Race at Huset's Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (June 24, 2024) - Kaleb Johnson pieced together one of his strongest starts to a World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series event last Wednesday at Huset's Speedway.

Johnson qualified 10 th quickest in his group and finished third in a heat race to kick off the BillionAuto.com Huset's High Bank Nationals presented by MENARDS. That locked him into a mid-pack starting position during the Huset's Hustle main event, but unfortunately mechanical woes sidelined him before the green flag was waved.

"I think we qualified well, especially for the cars that were in our group," he said. "I was hoping to get a spot or two in the heat race. I think going out in the first heat the track was a little narrow and tough to pass. About halfway through I could feel the motor losing a little bit of power. The end result wasn't great as we stuck a valve and broke some valve springs so we couldn't start the feature. We would have had it fixed to race on Friday, but Mother Nature had other plans."

The remainder of the BillionAuto.com Huset's High Bank Nationals presented by MENARDS was postponed because of continuing rain and flooding.

Next up for Johnson will be double duty this Saturday at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa.

"I'm excited for it as I'll run my 410 car and a 360 car for Dennis Gainey," he said. "I haven't gotten any 410 laps there this year so I'm excited to see where our stuff stacks up. And hopefully we can improve on our results with Dennis and the team."

Johnson has recorded a top 10 during all four starts at Knoxville Raceway this season, highlighted by a run from 12 th to fourth during his most recent visit.

QUICK RESULTS -

June 19 - Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D. - Qualifying: 10; Heat race: 3 (3); Feature: DNS (-).

Starks Battles Misfortune Throughout Dirt Cup to Finish 11 th During Finale

Inside Line Promotions - ALGER, Wash. (June 24, 2024) - Trey Starks entered the Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup last weekend at Skagit Speedway as the 410ci winged sprint car points leader and the winningest driver at the track this year.

"You have to be fast and you have to have luck at these big events," he said. "I felt we were fast, but we didn't have very much luck. That's how a weekend like that falls apart."

Starks had high expectations going into the marquee event, which he began last Thursday by setting quick time in qualifying out of the 45-plus competitors. He then hustled from eighth to third place in a heat race to be the high-points driver entering the main event, which was inverted by 16 positions.

"Early in the feature I had a big run on someone and I pulled to the inside," he said. "I was going so fast compared to him he didn't see or hear me coming. At the end of the straightaway he went to the bottom. He turned into my right rear with his left front. I was going so fast it just took flight."

Starks got upside down during the incident, which ended his night early with a 24th-place result.

The team pulled out the backup car on Friday and once again pieced together a strong first half of the night, qualifying 10 th quickest and placing sixth in a heat race. That lined Starks up on the outside of the fourth row in the main event.

"We were running about sixth," he said. "A car did a wheelie in front of us and when he set it down I thought he'd get back on the gas. Once I realized he wasn't I locked it up, but we collided and it destroyed the car. We scabbed it back together and picked up a few spots after restarting at the back. When we came back into the pits and looked at the car it was like how did we get through that."

Starks was credited with a 14th-place result.

He ranked eighth in overall event points entering Saturday's finale.

"The motor was basically falling out of the car after Friday's race," he said. "We went home and were in a time crunch to have it put together and leave by 1 p.m. to get back to the track in time. Instead of fixing the motor mounts we put a different engine in the car. We fought the engine all night and we weren't sure why. So that threw another thing into the loop."

Starks placed second in a heat race before ending the night 11 th in the main event while using his third different race car in as many nights.

"The main thing was getting in a car that hadn't had a 410 in it in like four years," he said. "It's the spare, spare, spare car, but at that point we didn't have too many options. We just fought everything and just weren't where we needed to be.

"I don't like making excuses, but being on a different car every night was pretty difficult from both a driver and a crew standpoint. I was really bummed out after Thursday because I felt we had one of if not the fastest car in the pits. When you're racing really hard for each position and it's a split-second decision, it's easy to get into a racing deal. Unfortunately, we were on the wrong end of those most of the weekend."

Starks plans to return to Skagit Speedway this Saturday. He currently holds a 54-point lead in the 410ci winged sprint car championship standings at the track.

June 20 - Skagit Speedway in Alger, Wash. - Qualifying: 1; Heat race: 3 (8); Feature: 24 (16).

Big Game Motorsports and Gravel Rally From 20 th to Ninth During BillionAuto.com Huset's High Bank Nationals Presented by MENARDS Opening Night at Huset's Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (June 24, 2024) - David Gravel hustled the Big Game Motorsports No. 2 sprint car from 20 th to ninth place last Wednesday during the opening night of the four-day BillionAuto.com Huset's High Bank Nationals presented by MENARDS.

The final three nights of the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series crown jewel event at Huset's Speedway were postponed because of intense rain and flooding.

The action on Wednesday began with Gravel qualifying fourth quickest in his group. He then finished where he started - fifth - in a heat race.

"We qualified good, but I wasn't able to pass in the heat races," he said. "With how that format is you have to pass cars or you're left in the wind. I was able to just lock into the feature."

Gravel lined up on the outside of the 10 th row in the Huset's Hustle main event.

"We slowly picked them off," he said. "I ran the bottom mostly. We had to run the middle and ran the top a couple of laps, but our car was on the snugger side so we definitely liked the bottom. I felt by the end of the race we were decent. We just ran out of laps."

Gravel's run from 20 th to ninth was the second-most positions gained during the feature.

"We were content to finish where we did," he said. "It was acceptable for us, but we weren't happy with how the night was. I think that would have lined us up on the front row of a heat race on Thursday and if we won that we'd have been in a good position, but rain washed out the rest of the weekend."

Next up for Big Game Motorsports is the World of Outlaws Independence Spectacular this Friday and Saturday at Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wis. Gravel owns a 56-point lead in the World of Outlaws championship standings entering the weekend.

"I'm very excited," he said. "I was able to win the second night there last year. I'm looking forward to going back. Hopefully it's nice and warm and slick like it normally is there and we get to do some racing."

VINCENTOWN, N.J. (June 24, 2024) – Although Justin Whittall’s complete Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek slate is still undetermined, planning to contend in most, if not all of the annual marquee, the New Jersey native’s momentum heading into the ten-race agenda will be hearty, capping his recent weekend of competition with a top-five score at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday, June 22.

Whittall, who earned his first victory of 2024 just one weekend prior at Port Royal Speedway, finished fourth in his most recent visit to the Juniata County “Speed Palace,” commencing main event action from the exact same position. In fact, it was a great evening on the whole for JW Motorsports, opening the $22,000-to-win Jim Kline Tribute with the fifth-fastest qualifying time of 28 entries, racing on to win his respective heat race.

Perfect timing, the event utilized a Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek format.

Things are starting to turn for the better, and no better time to do so than right before Speedweek,” Whittall, ace of the JG Kronenberger Fine Jewelry, Mid-Atlantic Transport, Pioneer Auto Body, Worldwide Bearings, Enterprise, Prime Composite Innovations, Milky Way Restaurant, No. 67 sprint car, said. “Really happy for this team. There’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes to keep this team in check and I’m proud to be connected with so many great people. Our plan is to be at all of Speedweek, but we’re still balancing some things out. We’ll see soon enough.”

Westfall on top at Paragon; Macon’s Top Gun Special highlights coming agenda
ByTyler Altmeyer
Jun 24, 2024

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

FOREST, Ohio (June 24, 2024) – It’s been a long time coming for Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports, but the Forest, Ohio-based non-wing venture finally scored their first triumph of the 2024 season, doing so at Paragon Speedway in Paragon, Indiana, on Saturday, June 22. In fact, the trip to Paragon was as last minute as anything could get, immediately switching directions after their USAC doubleheader in Wisconsin was called off due to Mother Nature.

Westfall, ace of Ray Marshall’s Buckeye Machine Fabricators Inc, Hempy Water, DPI Ink, Wix Filters, Rod End Supply, Allstar Performance, No. 33M non-wing sprinter, earned his Paragon victory from third on the grid, taking command officially with less than ten circuits remaining. The Johnson Memorial score earned Westfall a $3,000 payday; a great momentum shift heading into Macon Speedway’s highly anticipated Top Gun Special on June 28-29.

“We needed that one…we were kinda doubting ourselves a little bit, but we finally got over the hump,” Westfall said. “The first one is always the hardest to get, so hopefully this gives us a nice little boost heading into two days in Illinois.

“Macon is a wild place,” Westfall added. “We’re ready to get after it.”

ON DECK:
Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports will continue their 2024 USAC National Sprint Cars campaign with a Top Gun Special doubleheader at Macon Speedway in Macon, Illinois, on Friday and Saturday, June 28-29.

Swanson Tops Qualifying at Madison Int’l Speedway

In Doran Binks Racing’s Mission Foods No. 77

And Still Leads Points Following 100-Lapper

OREGON, Wis., June 23 — Doran Binks Racing and driver Kody Swanson still lead the entrant and driver point standings in the USAC Silver Crown division following Friday night’s Bytec Dairyland 100 at Madison International Speedway, but their top rivals have drawn closer after a mechanical problem resulted in an 11th-place finish for the No. 77, which is sponsored by Mission Foods, Glenn Farms, and Wilke Orthodontics.

Earlier in the evening Swanson won the pole for the 100-lap race with a time of 17.062 seconds, extending his record as the driver with the most USAC Silver Crown poles in history to 51. C.J. Leary, Bobby Santos III, Dakoda Armstrong and Taylor Ferns rounded out the top five in qualifying.

Swanson led all 300 laps of the three previous pavement USAC Silver Crown races this year and he’s won this race three times (2018, 2019 and 2023).

But on Friday Leary was able to get around him on the outside going into Turn 1 of the half-mile paved oval on the first lap, and then Santos edged under him in the same spot on lap two to relegate him to third.

That set up one of the best battle of the evening, as Swanson hounded Santos for second while Ferns tried to get third away from Swanson as the trio played a high-speed game of cat and mouse.

Swanson eventually dropped to fourth but his drive came to an end when he suddenly slowed in Turn 3 to bring out the first of two cautions on lap 61 due to a mechanical issue that caused the No. 77 to lose fuel. He was pushed to the pits by a four-wheeler and the Doran Binks crew made quick repairs. Swanson was able to return to the rear of the field and run for about 10 more laps, and his official finishing position was 11th.

He wasn’t the only one who had their night come to an end prematurely. Ferns brought out the event’s only other yellow while running third working lap 75 when she stopped at about the same place Swanson had. Her car’s issue was a broken U-joint, and she ended up right behind Swanson in the final rundown, in 12th place.

And after leading from the start, Leary also ran into calamity in the same spot on lap 89, as he got a flat tire and had contact with Armstrong. He pitted for a new tire but he ended up ninth.

That gave the point to Armstrong, who went on to post his first USAC Silver Crown victory. Santos, Grant, rookie Trey Osborne and defending series champion Seavey rounded out the top five.

The race was streamed live by Flo Racing.

The next USAC Silver Crown race is the Sumar Classic on July 4 at the Terre Haute Action Track in Terre Haute, Ind. The series then travels to Salt City Speedway in Hutchinson, Kan. July 19-20 prior to four events in August. The complete schedule is posted on usacracing.com.

IN THE THICK OF THE USAC/CRA CHAMPIONSHIP HUNT, AJ BENDER HEADS TO PERRIS SATURDAY

(Perris, CA, June 20, 2024) The saying “Good things come to those who wait” seems to apply to AJ Bender's season in the Avanti Windows and Doors USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series. The San Diego, California resident not only won his first series event at Perris Auto Speedway on April 27th, but he also finds himself locked in a tight, early-season point battle for the USAC/CRA championship.

Bender should be no stranger to longtime Southern California racing fans. After moving from Texas with his family when he was five or six years old, he and older brother Bobby eventually became regulars in the California Lightning Sprint Car Series. Both made big impressions as fast, very capable drivers and in 2008, AJ won the CLS Rookie of the Year award.

After a few years in the CLS, Bender transitioned into the tough world of USAC/CRA 410 sprint car racing. He also had planned on competing in the newly created Perris Auto Speedway Young Gun Sprint Car Series (now known as the GAS Chassis Young Gun Series) when it debuted in 2013. At the time, the Young Guns series was for drivers 14-21 with no prior sprint car experience. Since he fell within the age range, he was also allowed to run with the Young Guns. That is, he was allowed to compete with the Young Guns in one race.

At the 2013 season opener, Bender put such a whipping on the Young Guns field that a new rule was introduced. While there was no official name for the rule, it quickly became known as the “Bender Rule.” That was due to how badly he whipped the competition. From that day forward, drivers with USAC/CRA experience were no longer eligible to compete in the Young Gun Series. That rule still stands today.

“Yeah, I know about the rule,” Bender laughed when reminded. “I was very bummed about the rule. It is hard to believe that was 11 years ago.

In the seasons since his only Young Guns win, Bender, now 31, has honed his skill and has become a talented driver. While the majority of his racing has been confined to Perris, he has proved to be very adaptable at any track he competes on. His thrilling win in the sprint car portion at the 2021 Turkey Night Grand Prix at the Ventura Raceway put the fans on their feet at the end of the race. Over the last few years, he has also scored wins with the occasional ride in a lightning sprint car. The most recent one of those came while driving for Northern California’s Brian Fonseca at the Ventura Raceway on May 11th.

Any victory is nice, but one that eluded Bender was a win in the USAC/CRA Series. Considered the premiere traditional sprint car series west of the Mississippi, wins with the group are not easy to come by. Bender was aware of that, and despite a couple of heartbreaks, he never quit trying. He had not picked up a win through his first 118 starts in the West Coast group. That all changed on Saturday, April 27th, at Perris.

Bender was not having a spectacular season through the year's first four races. All told, he had one top 10 finish. That came at the Cocopah Speedway on March 23rd when he placed fifth. In the other four races, he was 12th and 16th at Perris and 15th at the Mohave Valley Raceway. At the race on April 27th, he qualified ninth fastest and won his 10-lap heat race. That placed him on the pole for the main. Over the years, the pole at Perris has not produced a lot of winners. This night it would be different.

In one of the best races at the track in recent years, Bender, driving the #21 DRC powered by a Shaver Engine and owned by his mom and dad, jumped into the lead, and set the pace for the first three circuits. The 30 lapper had seven lead changes, and Bender was engaged in every one of them. Performing flawlessly on the track’s famous cushion, he reclaimed the lead for two laps on lap 11. He then led laps 14 through 19 and finally 21 through 30. Unlike many drivers who luck into their first win, this victory was anything but that. It was a hard-fought-for, well-earned triumph.

“Absolutely, the feeling was through the roof,” Bender exclaimed of his first USAC/CRA win. “A feeling of what I have been trying for has finally been accomplished. But I told my dad when we left for home that night to forget it and go on to the next one. We have a long season ahead of us.”

“Maybe when I was younger, not that I did not care, but I did not take the time to learn this stuff,” the driver continued. “We have been with the CRA for a long time but we really never ran a full schedule. We pretty much only ran Perris. I feel like in the past four or five years I have done my homework. You know, taking the time to learn about the car and what I am feeling and what can make me go faster. I feel like a lot of my progression has been in the last four or five years. Kind of leading up to it (the first CRA win). I feel a lot of the time I have been close and I have had good cars. But it is racing and stuff happens.”

That win lit a fire under Bender. There have been two races since. The annual Salute to Indy at Perris on May 25th and the Golden Empire Clash at Kevin Harvick’s Kern Raceway two weeks ago. The Dallas, Texas-born racer finished fifth and third in those races, respectively. The results have thrown him into the middle of a red hot championship race. The top six drivers are only 84 points apart. Bender is in the middle of the mix in third and is only seven points out of second.

“That alone is really cool,” he enthusiastically answered when asked how it felt being in third place. “Outside of when I ran the midget two years ago for a full season, I have never run a full season in a series in my racing career. This was kind of like a cool opportunity. This year, my dad said, ‘let's try to run the full season.’ I have always felt like I could be a good points racer because I feel like I am pretty consistent. On bad nights I try to come away with something out of it. It (being in the points race) makes me feel a little more confident and solidifies that I can do this. It is still a long season. Anything can happen. I try not to think about it too much, but it is hard not to think about it. It is cool to see your name on the stuff that they post.”

Not only is Bender in the thick of the points race but his mom and dad are as well. In the car owner points, they are second, only seven points back of the leader.

“That is pretty cool,” he responded about his parent’s lofty position in the owner points. “Especially since they (USAC/CRA) are offering money and stuff for the entrants.”

Bender was responding from his parent's garage while working on the racecar for this Saturday’s event at Perris. The friendly driver tries to work on the car a couple of days a week. It is hard to be there every night as he, his wife Tiffany, and daughter Reagan, who will soon turn five, live near downtown San Diego. The car is 45 minutes to an hour away in Ramona.

Family time with his wife and daughter is a big priority. Between the family, work, and living quite a distance from most of his competitors, he does not spend a lot of time with them.

“We don’t hang out outside of racing, but we are all pretty cordial to each other,” Bender said of his relationship with the other drivers. “That is nice. If they ask me something, I would not tell them a lie. I would tell them what is going on. It is kind of cool to be doing that with people you consider to be your friends. The racing community is kind of like your family. It is kind of nice not to have grudges or really dislike somebody. But at the same time, I wouldn’t give them an inch.”

To see if AJ Bender can pick up his second win of the year at Perris on Saturday, the fun begins when the gates open at 5:00 p.m. The night's first race will start at 7:00. Adult tickets are $30.00. For seniors 65 and over, it is $25.00. Kids 6 to 12 get in for only $5.00, and children five and under are admitted free. The fairgrounds charges $10.00 for parking.

Bender wished to thank Bender Pool & Spa, Matrix Construction Services, Keys Brothers Racing, Lawler’s Towing, No Limit Powder Coating, and Brandit Designs for being marketing partners with him in the 2024 season.

BROWN GEARED UP FOR 2024 SEASON

WITH the 2024 season soon to be getting underway at Darwin’s Northline Speedway in the Northern Territory, one driver who is very excited about that happening is local 410 Sprintcar youngster Hayden Brown.

Heading into his fourth in the 410 Sprintcar class, the 24-year-old has set himself one main goal for the 2024 season, and that’s to be consistently amongst the top-10 runners.

“I’m looking forward to the season ahead and hoping that it’s going to be a good one,” enthused the Darwin, Northern Territory-based racer.

“The family team and I have been working hard throughout the off season getting the car ready the best we can and also building up our sponsorship support, which includes getting a new major sponsor in the guys at Territory Plant Hire, and I’m proud to say I’m happy with how the off season has panned out, and now it’s time get amongst it out on the race track.”

With a 10 race meeting calendar making up the 2024 season, Brown has his eyes on not only contesting all of them but getting his NT # 77 Territory Plant Hire supported Triple X car running at the front of the field.

“With this being my fourth season in Sprintcars, I’m working on being more consistent throughout the night in order to be up there come feature race time, and the team and I have shown plenty of speed in patches last season, but the aim is to try and do that on a more regular basis,” he said.

“For the first couple of months of the season, the team and I will be hoping to be amongst the top-five contenders, but when the big shows come around in the months of August and September with a lot of interstate competitors, I’m aiming to be one of the best of the locals by qualifying into the feature races and seeing where I end up.”

There is no doubt that Brown and his family team are well prepared for the upcoming 2024 season, and they are hoping that this is going to be the catalyst for them upping the ante out on the race track.

The 2024 season begins for Brown and his team with this Saturday night’s Darwin Title at Northline Speedway.

Weaver’s Win Earns Points Lead; RUSH Mods Sunday at Tri City Raceway Park

(Franklin, PA June 19, 2024): Jeremy Weaver’s first career win in the 410 Sprint Car division last Sunday at Tri City Raceway Park was a memorable one, for sure. But, little did he know as he celebrated in victory lane that he also became the points leader in the Krill Recycling season championship. Weaver vaulted from third to first in one fell swoop.

Weaver enters this week’s contest two points ahead of veteran Bob Felmlee and seven points ahead of two-time and defending champion A.J. Flick. You can count on seeing all three in action this Sunday, along with a dozen or more talented 410 Sprint Car racers.

Gale Ruth, Jr., Andy Cavanaugh, Cameron Nastasi, Bodey McClintock, and many more will try for their first wins of the season, which could shuffle up the point standings even more.

The 21st Century Energy Group 358 Modifieds will be on the card as well. The burning question is whether Erick Rudolph will make the trip from the Empire State to square off again with Chad Reitz. Both drivers have a pair of wins on the season, so Sunday could be a tie breaker for divisional bragging rights. Steve Slater is still under medical care, so Eric Gabany will probably be at the controls of Slater’s car once again. Gabany filled in admirably last week, finishing a close second to the invader. Maybe Gabany can bring home the win? Or, will it be Kyle Fink, who finally seems to have worked out the bugs that hampered his early season efforts.

There was also a change at the top of the standings for the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks. Tim Bish encountered an engine problem in the make-up feature last week, and he did not compete in the regularly scheduled program. But, Pat Fielding ran both ends of the double header and, now, his consistency has put him out front in the championship contest. Josh Seippel sits just two points back and Rod Laskey is only three points out of the lead. Their competition will be intense. Nearly twenty Pro Stocks were on hand last week, and another banner field is expected.

The 4 Your Car Connection RUSH Sprint Cars had their second event since being added to the Sunday Thunder line-up. The Rush Sprints will be racing at another area speedway this weekend due to a prior scheduling arrangement. So, pinch hitting for them this week will be the RUSH Sportsmen Modifieds.

Racing action will start at 6 p.m., with practice for the RUSH Sportsmen Modifieds only.

The pit gates will open at 2 p.m., as usual. Spectator gates will open at 4 p.m.

The regular ticket prices will apply for this event. Adults will be admitted for $15. Seniors (ages 62 and up), students (ages 11 to 16), and military will be admitted for $13, all with proper identification of course. Children (ages 10 and under) will be free. Pit passes will be $35, with the exception that infant pit passes (for those ages two and under) will be $15.

If you cannot make it to Tri City Raceway Park this week, there will be a Sunday Thunder program next week, plus an autograph session for all divisions.

Plus, watch the track social media feed for some exciting schedule changes in the coming weeks!

The divisional sponsors of Tri City Raceway Park for 2024 are: Krill Recycling, LLC (410 Sprint Cars), 21st Centure Energy Group (358 Modifieds), Hovis Auto & Truck Supply (Pro Stocks), and 4 Your Car Connection (RUSH Sprint Cars).

THREE SPRINT CAR CLASSES AND TWO STOCK CAR CLASSES SATURDAY AT PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY

(Perris, CA, June 18, 2024) This Saturday night, June 22nd, Perris Auto Speedway will host the fastest traditional sprint car series west of the Mississippi. The cars will be the Avanti Windows and Doors USAC/CRA Sprint Cars but they will not be the only group of cars supplying the intense action. In addition to the 410 sprinters, the GAS Chassis Young Gun Sprints, PAS Senior Sprints, and the PASSCAR Street and American Factory Stocks will also be on hand to thrill the crowd.

For the first time this season, coming into Saturday’s Street Stock portion of the program, there is no tie for first in the championship point standings. Over the first two races, James Altman Jr of Lake Elsinore, and Ohio native Evan Sennett, who now lives in Riverside, were tied for the top of the heap in the standings. That great battle hit a bit of a rough patch at the last event on May 25th when a rod in Sennett’s engine decided to escape from the block during the heat race.

Sennett’s misfortune, combined with another top-notch performance by Altman, broke the tie and gave Altman some breathing room in the championship standings. Altman, who has a win, a second place and a third in the first three races of the year, now leads the title chase by a single point!!! Taking up the chase and breathing directly down his neck is Rancho Palos Verdes racer George Leventis, whose father, Chris is the two-time defending class champion. Lake Mathews teen Cameron Pierce, another second-generation racer, is third and is only nine points out of first. Morgan Rowlan of Riverside and 2021 champion “Elkman” Brandon Kelly are fourth and fifth. Personable Sennett and the senior Leventis are sixth and seventh.

In the American Factory Stocks, Menifee's David Uraine leads a tight battle that sees the top five only separated by 11 points. James Keller of Jurupa Valley is second, five points behind Uraine. Nuevo's Ethan Kintop is one point behind Keller. David Stites of Canyon Lake and Albert Jurtado of Riverside are fourth and fifth and only trail the leader by 10 and 11-points respectively.

In the GAS Chassis Young Gun Sprint Car class, Westminster’s Brecken Guererro has a firm grip on the championship and the brand-new GAS Chassis that will go with it. The first-year driver holds a 58-point lead over fellow newcomer Jake McKee of Redlands. Riverside’s Cody Deloye and Seth Dyer of Yucca Valley are third and fourth.

Like Guererro, Tustin’s Bob Suchy has a big lead over Yorba Linda’s Greg Badgwell in the Senior Sprints. IE-based drivers Mike Kotlinski of Nuevo and Murrieta’s Tyler Hatzikian are third and fourth.

CRSA HEADS TO OUTLAW TO BEGIN DANDY TRIPLE PLAY

tomy moreau.JPG

Press Release By: Marty Czekala – June 19, 2024

The A-Verdi Storage Containers CRSA Sprints, powered by SuperGen Products, prepare to return to Outlaw Speedway Friday to begin the Dandy Triple Play.

It is just the seventh time the track in Dundee has hosted "The Future Stars of Sprint Cars." Last year, Tomy Moreau won his second career CRSA feature.

Here’s a look at the stories entering the weekend.

Last Race: A return to the Afton Fairgrounds Speedway May 31 for CRSA to continue the Joe's Garage Southern Tier Series. With nine to go, Kyle Pierce took advantage of Jeff Trombley’s blown motor to take the lead and not back for his first win of the season, the fifth of his career.

This was a race in which the one that got away returned to him. Last time at Afton, Pierce was leading when he ran out of fuel in the final laps, giving the win to Dalton Herrick.

"Anytime we can win, or even in the top 10, that's a great day for us,” said Pierce post-race. “To finally get a win is a great way to start the summer months.”

Mike Kiser finished second, while Dalton Herrick was third.

A New Series: This Friday kicks off the Dandy Triple Play. This three-race series travels to Outlaw and Woodhull, both tracks near a local Dandy convenience store.

Dandy is a full convenient store with excellent food service and a large selection of fuel. With over 60 locations in the Southern Tier of New York and Northern Pennsylvania, Dandy's mission is to ensure that every customer receives courteous service while providing quality products at a fair price in a safe environment.

To celebrate the first race, the top three Friday will receive gift cards to Dandy.

Are you heading to the race? Eat at Dandy, down the road from the track on 53 Water St. CRSA recommends the chicken and waffle sandwich and the brisket special.

We know Drama: In the last three races of action, exciting moments have unfolded amongst the leaders in the second half of the race. Matt Rotz had to hold off a hard-charging Bobby Parrow in the final laps for his first career sprint car win at Land of Legends. Back at Weedsport, Bobby Parrow broke a rear end to give Jordan Hutton the win. Now, Friday at Afton, it was Trombley’s engine giving away to give Kyle Pierce his first win.

Bad Luck June: CRSA has yet to complete a single race in the sixth month of the 2024 calendar. All three events scheduled for June 1 at Fonda Speedway, June 7 at Utica-Rome Speedway and June 14 at Penn Can Speedway were postponed, leaving only one race on the calendar for June. The last time CRSA only contested one event in June was 2019, a race at Glen Ridge Motorsports Park.

What’s Happening?: With postponements the last few weeks, some drivers have had only one place to run Saturdays, Land of Legends Raceway in Canandaigua. Last Saturday, 23 drivers checked in and featured Timmy Lotz recording his first 305 Sprint victory over Darryl Ruggles and Bobby Parrow.

“Those (yellows) kept coming one after another, was just hoping they’d stop,” said Lotz in victory lane. "Was trying to figure out how to get around all that (lapped traffic), so I’m glad the caution came out for that (last) one. I didn’t even know it was the checkers, thought we still had one more (lap) to go and then I see (Hixson) throw the doubles (checkered flags) so I knew I was good to go.”

Johnny Kolosek and Ruggles have also won in recent weeks of action.

By the Numbers: At Outlaw, the average car count in the last three races is 19. Darryl Ruggles, Dana Wagner and Dalton Herrick have the most top fives at two. Ruggles is the only repeat winner at Outlaw. Other winners at “The Baddest Dirt Track on the Planet” include Danny Varin, Jeff VanSteenburg, Jordan Hutton and Tomy Moreau.

From the Frontman: "Finally, we're excited to return to racing! Based on what we’ve seen for sprint car racing at Outlaw, the racing has been incredible. Ensure you stay hydrated, bring your cool towels and do what you must do to stay cool. It’s going to be an excellent night to kick off summer.” ~ Mike Emhof

From the Track Promoter: “Mike Emhof has worked exceptionally hard in moving the CRSA Sprints into one of the major sprint car touring groups in the northeast. Each year, the series continues to grow in popularity, and they can boast of huge car counts wherever they go.”~ Tyler Siri, per Outlaw's press release

Up Next: CRSA takes the weekend of June 28 off, then returns to action July 4 at Land of Legends for a Stars and Stripes Spectacular special in the second race of the DisBatch Brewing Company Challenge. After that, a quick turnaround to Genesee Speedway in Batavia July 6.

SEXTON GATLIN RACING RETURNS TO ACTION SATURDAY AT PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY

Brent is returning to action after working on his tan at the river. Grant spent his vacation In Puerto Vallarta. Despite missing the last two USAC/CRA races, both drivers are still ranked in the top 20 in points. Brent, a three-time lightning sprint car champion who is a rookie in the best traditional sprint car series west of the Mississippi, is currently 17th in the series championship standings. Grant, who captured the 2023 USAC/CRA Rookie of the Year award, is 20th.

Saturday will be the fourth appearance of the season for the beautiful Sexton Gatlin Racing #22 and #44 cars on the banked half-mile clay oval in Riverside County. Both drivers are hoping for better results than they achieved in the first three outings. For Brent, a 52-year-old who first raced at Perris over a quarter of a century ago, he has finished 13th, 15th, and 16th at the track this year. Grant, who will turn 20 in less than a month, has an 18th, 19th, and 21st.

Brent’s 13th at Perris was his best outing in the series in 2024. Grant’s best USAC/CRA finish thus far in 2024 was an 11th at Arizona's Mohave Valley Raceway on April 6th.

During his 2023 Rookie of the Year campaign, Grant had five top-10 finishes and one top-5. His best finish was fifth at Bakersfield Speedway on June 24th. In seven appearances at Perris last season, he had two top-10 results. The first of the two was in the prestigious Salute to Indy on Memorial Day weekend. He closed his Perris Auto Speedway season on November 11th when he finished eighth.

Between the USAC/CRA Sprint Cars, POWRi Southwest Lightning Sprints and PAS Senior Sprints, Brent started eight main events at Perris in 2023. His biggest successes came in the POWRi Series where he won April 15, placed second on May 27th, and sixth on November 11th. On June 10th of last year, he drove in both the USAC/CRA Series and the Seniors. He placed seventh in a shocking first appearance in the “Big Boy” USAC/CRA main. That came moments after he finished second in the Senior main.

Spectator gates at Perris will open at 5:00 p.m., and racing will follow at 7:00. Adult tickets are $30.00. Seniors 65 and over get in for $25.00. For kids 6-12, it is only $5, and children 5 and under are free. Advance tickets are available twenty-four hours a day online at https://www.tix.com/ticket-sales/pas/7/event/1366776 or by calling 1-800-595-4849. The fairgrounds charge $10 for parking.

SEVERAL FORMER CHAMPS ON TAP FOR MUST SEE RACING OWOSSO EVENT

June 19, 2024 – Holly, Michigan – When the Must See Racing Sprint Series Presented by Perfit-Parts invades Owosso Speedway this Saturday night June 22, it will bring with it an impressive list of former pavement sprint car champions from around the country.

The list of entrants for the event announced Wednesday afternoon is stout. This may be one of the deepest lineups MSR has fielded at Owosso Speedway in a long time. It is highlighted by five-time MSR champion Jimmy McCune and defending MSR champion Jason Blonde.

Other champions expected to compete include 2022 MSR champion Charlie Schultz, 2017 Southern Sprint Car Shootout Series champion John Inman, three-time Little 500 champion Jeff Bloom, 305 pavement champion Kevin Mingus, and former T.B.A.R.A. champion Shane Bulter.

Defending Open Wheel Showdown champion Aaron Willison will be making his second career MSR start aboard the legendary Dick Myers owned #50m. In Willson’s first series start June 1 at Lancaster, New York, Willison turned in a strong performance and almost squeaked out a win on the final lap only to settle for second. Willison enjoyed his time in New York so much that he made it a priority to secure the ride in the #50m again this weekend.

Bobby Santos III, who has won the first two MSR outings this year, isn’t expected to compete due to a previous commitment. That should open the door for Joe Ligouri and Ryan Litt to possibly unseat Santos from the top of the standings. Liguori set quick time the last time the series competed on June 1.

Saturday’s event will be the first time this season the new ‘Fast Cash’ Challenge will be in effect. If the fast qualifier accepts the challenge, he will automatically pick up an additional $500 and have a chance to win additional cash bonuses in his heat race and feature event. A $100 bonus will also be up for grabs if he sets a new track record. If he accepts the challenge, the inversion number will be no worse than 6.

This new bonus program should be good news for Rick Holley. ”Smoke Show” as he is nicknamed, was the only driver in 2023 able to figure out the new asphalt at Owosso. Holley set quick time on both MSR visits to Owosso in 2023. He came away with the all-time track record on September 2.

Joining the MSR 410 Series will be the Maxima Racing Oils Midwest Lights Series on Saturday night giving fans a double-header of winged asphalt sprint car racing. The MSR Lights will also be in action Friday night June 21 at Corrigan Oil Speedway in Mason, Michigan. This is a rare two-race weekend for the MSR Lights.

Ocean View, DE. June 17th, 2023.

As of today, Heffner Racing Enterprises South and Mike Heffner have decided to discontinue it's non-wing sprint car endeavors. This is the sole decision of team owner, Mike Heffner. Heffner stated, "I have enjoyed the last several years of being a non-wing team owner and have been blessed to have had some of the best drivers and crew members on the east coast. Our successes have proven that the dedication and passion of the team was well above par. I owe a great deal of gratitude to everyone who has been involved with the team for the last several seasons. There is no reason in particular, I just felt it in my gut and heart that it was time to focus on my true passion which is winged sprint car racing, of special note, I would like to sincerely thank Alex Bright, for piloting the car to numerous wins and podium finishes during the last year. Alex is a top-notch wheelman and a great person. I am certain that he has many wins left in him. I also would like to thank Curt Michael and the entire crew for their care and attention to the team and it's equipment. Last but certainly not least, a big personal thank you to Robert Hummer and our sponsors."

According to Heffner, the team plans to pause operations for the time being and will be reorganizing and reinventing to compete in 410 and 360 winged sprint car divisions. The team will continue to have Curt Michael manage and serve as crew chief for the team when the restructuring has been completed.

As for the Heffner Racing Enterprises Pennsylvania operations, it will be business as usual, nothing has changed or will change in the foreseeable future. Heffner states, "I am having more fun and im more excited than ever with the Troy Wagaman Jr piloted 27 in central Pa." Wagaman and the Ben Engle led team plan on competing in all of the Pennsylvania Speedweek.

Stay tuned for future updates regarding the next planned events, and driver for the Heffner Enterprises South team when they become available.

 

 

ESS Crosses the Border to Brockville, Cornwall This Weekend

By Curtis Berleue (Brockville, ONT) | Some of the most anticipated events on the Empire Super Sprints schedule each year are always the trips north of the border into Canada. 2024 is no different, and this coming weekend is the first of three border crossings for full-point events for the season.

Saturday, the tour will invade the Brockville Ontario Speedway for their first of two trips to the track, and Sunday will be the lone stop in 2024 at the Cornwall Motor Speedway. A strong contingent of ESS regulars is expected to take on some of the toughest Canadian locals.

Leading the charge north is current points leader Jason Barney, who, in addition to the success he’s been enjoying so far in 2024, will be tough to beat as he is a former winner at both Brockville (2017) and Cornwall (2018) in ESS action.

Two time and defending champion Jordan Poirier sits second in points headed into the weekend. The Quebec native and local favorite also has had success at both tracks in the past, notching an ESS win at Cornwall in 2017.

All persons entering the pits on Saturday at Brockville should be reminded that a digital waiver must be signed per the tracks insurance, and no paper waiver will be available at the track. The waiver can be found at https://bos.speedwaiver.com . Additionally, all teams looking to purchase medium tires should get their order to Shawn Donath no later than Thursday as only a limited supply will be available at the track this weekend.

The official order of events for both nights, along with pricing for each event can be found on both tracks’ website and Facebook pages, along with on the Empire Super Sprints social media channels.

Dover Extends Condolences for Long-Time Family Friend and Sponsor

Inside Line Promotions - EAGLE, Neb. (June 18, 2024) - Jack Dover and the Dover Family would like to offer condolences to the family and friends of a long-time family friend and sponsor.

Stan Cisar passed away this week after battling cancer. The Dover Family knew Cisar for several decades, forming a business relationship that became a friendship.

"Stan Cisar was one of our best friends in business and personal life," Marc and Lori Dover said. "Not many people know, but he had one of the best bands in the area and we were lucky enough to have him play at our wedding 42 years ago. For years to follow, he was the go-to guy for everything that needed lettering, be it race cars, signs for the auto show or an entire work truck lettered so it could be on the road in the morning.

"There was a word that wasn't in Stan's vocabulary - 'no.' It wasn't an option. He always got it done and made it look top notch. One of the best things of all was listening to him call the races and then we would all head to Denny's for breakfast afterwards and do some serious bench racing at the table or lunch at Lansky's for some pizza.

"Not many people have been involved with our lives in business, racing or personally as Stan was. He was a great business associate and an even better friend and will be truly missed. We are all better for knowing him. God Speed, 'Voice.' I'm sure he will be calling all those races beyond the pearly gates now."

Cisar's Speedway Graphics, which he sold last year, has been a sponsor for Jack Dover since he first began competing in race cars and throughout his sprint car career.

"I've known him since I was a little kid," he said. "On the business side, he did the stickers for my parent's towing business and has been involved in my racing since I started. We all appreciated his support as a sponsor, but more importantly we appreciated him as a friend. He is missed."

Dover made his 410ci winged sprint car season debut last week during the Kubota High Limit Racing event at Eagle Raceway. He qualified 19 th quickest in his group before advancing a position to end ninth in a heat race. Dover won the C Main and picked up a pair of positions to place 12 th in the B Main.

"Qualifying is so important everywhere you race and when you go to these big shows you have to qualify up front to be a contender or at least midpack to be in a position to advance into the main event," he said. "We didn't do either so it was tough to make much progress against that level of competition."

Dover is unsure of the date of his next race.

Starks Produces Win at Skagit Speedway and Podium at Grays Harbor Raceway

Inside Line Promotions - ELMA, Wash. (June 18, 2024) - Trey Starks enjoyed a victorious weekend in Washington.

Starks won his eighth race of the season last Saturday at Skagit Speedway in Alger before he recorded a third-place result on Sunday during the Timber Cup hosted by Grays Harbor Raceway.

The weekend started with Starks setting quick time during 360ci winged sprint car competition at Skagit Speedway.

"It was another solid night," he said. "We went quick time and from fourth to second in the heat race. We drew the No. 3 for the feature redraw and I think that's the third week in a row we've started third at Skagit.

"I fell to fourth trying to make the bottom work a little too hard early in the feature. I got up in line. The track was really wide. The top was way up there and the bottom was slick so the track was really good. Close to the halfway point we started getting into traffic. The guys in second and third went to the bottom and the top. I closed in on them and it seemed every lane was blocked. I pulled into the middle going into turn three and I found something on the exit that had a lot of grip. I used that line through the middle to get by second and third. I could see we were rolling in the leader, but I was starting to wear my own groove out so I started to move around to try to preserve it in case I had to use it to go for the lead. We got a caution with about six laps to go. I got a really good restart and was able to just slip underneath him going into turn three. My car came alive in clean air. We rolled the wing back a little and ran hard, consistent laps toward the end."

Starks ventured to Grays Harbor Raceway on Sunday for a NARC 410 Sprint Car Series race that capped the Fastest Five Days in Motorsports.

"We went out last in qualifying, which I don't think hurt us," he said. "We had a solid qualifying lap to get third. That was important with that format. We went fourth to third in the heat race. We were solid, but there wasn't a whole lot that could be done in the dash and we finished fourth. The track was fairly narrow until the feature.

"The modifieds ran before us and chopped the track up even more. At the beginning of the feature it looked like it might be a cowboy-up track, just rough and hooked up. It was that way the first five or 10 laps. Then the track cleaned off and turned into a really good racing surface. It was pretty technical and you had to be careful where you were running. We rode in fourth the first 10 laps or so and then got to third and tracked down the leaders. We had a late-race restart and challenged for second, but didn't quite get there. For our first night at Elma in a 410 and on different track conditions than we were used to and against solid competition, we were pretty happy with our finish."

Next up for Starks is the Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup at Skagit Speedway this Thursday through Saturday. He enters the weekend leading the 410 standings at the track, where he has won three of the five 410 races this season.

"I feel like the last couple of years we've felt better and better going into Dirt Cup and that's the same tune this year," he said. "I feel the best I have leading into Dirt Cup. We had really good prelim nights last year and didn't quite finish it off on the final night. If we can have a similar run on the prelims and capitalize more on the final night we have a good shot at being up front."

QUICK RESULTS -

June 15 - Skagit Speedway in Alger, Wash. - Qualifying: 1; Heat race: 2 (4); Feature: 1 (3).

Dominic Scelzi Produces First NARC Win of Season at Grays Harbor Raceway

Inside Line Promotions - ELMA, Wash. (June 18, 2024) - Dominic Scelzi earned his first NARC 410 Sprint Car Series feature victory of the season on Sunday to wrap up the Fastest Five Days in Motorsports.

It was his best result during a busy week that also showcased a top 10 at both Southern Oregon Speedway in White City, Ore., and Willamette Speedway in Lebanon, Ore., as well as a podium performance at Cottage Grove Speedway in Cottage Grove, Ore.

"It was a weird week," he said. "That's the only way I can put it. We started off Wednesday night at Southern Oregon Speedway and the track was really fast from the middle up and it was really wet and greasy on the bottom. Everybody was qualifying through the middle. We did a great job and were fourth quickest so we were on the pole of our heat race. The bottom never got worked in so there was nothing I could do to win the start. The outside front row won every heat race and the dash and the main event. By not winning the heat race I didn't make the dash and then I started on the inside row in the feature as well. I fell to eighth on the start and raced up to sixth in 13 laps before a bad wreck that ended the race early."

Scelzi ventured to the Douglas County Dirt Track in Roseburg, Ore., on Thursday. He qualified fourth quickest, won a heat race and placed second in the dash to line up on the outside of the front row in the main event.

"We were good all night," he said. "They did a rework of the track before the feature. I felt pretty confident. Going into turn one there was a little bit of grease up top and it caught me off guard. I got sideways and into the cushion and it sent me upside down and killed a brand new race car."

Scelzi rebounded from the 22nd-place finish the following night at Cottage Grove Speedway, where he timed in sixth quickest, placed second in a heat race and advanced from seventh to third in the feature. It was the second-most positions gained by any driver.

"The bottom was super, super slick so there was no chance to win the heat race," he said. "That kept me out of the dash again. In the feature I drove from seventh to third and we were under Cole (Macedo) coming to the checkered. The last 10 laps we were the fastest car on the track. So that was a positive, but at the same time a bummer knowing that if we made the dash we would have had better track position for the feature."

Scelzi was seventh quickest to open the program at Willamette Speedway on Saturday.

"The track was so wet to start the night," he said. "We qualified good and started on the outside of the front row in a heat race. I felt the polesitter jumped the start and ran me up toward the wall. I was in third off turn two. I tried to rip the top to get back to second and ended up falling to fourth. I started 10 th in the feature and just couldn't get around anyone as there was no passing so we finished 10th."

The five-day speedweek concluded on Sunday at Grays Harbor Raceway, where Scelzi was eighth quickest in qualifying. He then won a heat race, the dash and the Timber Cup main event.

"Grays Harbor is one of my favorite tracks in the country," he said. "Two years ago we ran second to Trey (Starks) and last year we led until I ran out of fuel. We got a good draw in the dash, which helped. In the feature as we went the track got pretty good and wide. You could run the bottom or middle or top. Justin (Sanders) got around me in traffic off turn two and I was able to slide him in turns three and four. It seemed I was the only one in the first few rows able to run the top, middle and the bottom. I was able to run all over the track and we took advantage to earn the win.

"I truly believe if just small things were changed this year we'd be celebrating our fourth NARC win. We finally got our first one. It was perfect timing for us and I believe this is exactly what we needed to get us over the hump."

Scelzi finished the week ranked sixth in the Fastest Five Days in Motorsports standings.

Next up for the team is the Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup with the NARC 410 Sprint Car Series this Thursday through Saturday at Skagit Speedway in Alger, Wash.

Big Game Motorsports and Gravel Top World of Outlaws Weekend Opener at Knoxville; BillionAuto.com Huset's High Bank Nationals Presented by MENARDS on Deck

Inside Line Promotions - KNOXVILLE, Iowa (June 18, 2024) - Big Game Motorsports is one win away from hitting the double-digit mark after David Gravel guided the team to its ninth World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series triumph of the season last weekend.

The team invaded Knoxville Raceway for a doubleheader with Gravel opening the weekend on Friday by qualifying fourth quickest in his group. A runner-up result in a heat race advanced him into the dash and he gained a position to place second, earning the outside front row starting position for the A Main.

Gravel took the lead on Lap 10 and held the point until Lap 16 when Kyle Larson got by for the top spot. Gravel lost ground initially after being passed, but he began to rally a couple of laps later and closed on Larson. However, the leader pulled to a stop and Gravel inherited the lead with a half-dozen laps remaining. He pulled away for his 97 th career World of Outlaws victory.

"Once I got back to the bottom, I got right back to (Larson)," Gravel said in a post-race interview on DIRTVision. "I really wish we could've raced that out. I think he was running really aggressive and was maybe going to run high one more lap, and I might've been able to get underneath him. I wish we could've raced that out. I've got to thank Cody (Jacobs), Stephen (Hamm-Reilly) and Zach (Patterson) for working hard. This is a new car, and to debut it, qualify well going out late, and winning the race is really good."

The team wrapped up the weekend at 'The Sprint Car Capital of the World' on Saturday. Gravel timed in third quickest in his group and finished second in a heat race to once again move into the dash. He picked up a pair of positions in the dash to end third. Gravel battled for a podium position throughout the feature before he placed fourth for his 21 st top five of the season, which leads the World of Outlaws.

Gravel also used the solid weekend to boost his World of Outlaws championship points lead to 56 points. Next up for the team is the famed $100,000-to-win Huset's Hustle and the $250,000-to-win BillionAuto.com Huset's High Bank Nationals presented by MENARDS running this Wednesday through Saturday at Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D.

Hagar Earns Podium During Riverside International Speedway's Greg Hodnett Memorial

Inside Line Promotions - WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. (June 18, 2024) - Derek Hagar posted a podium performance last Saturday at Riverside International Speedway during the 6 th annual Greg Hodnett Memorial.

"I feel like we had a good run," he said. "The race track was looking to be good and racy and we had an unexpected rain shower right before hot laps. It made it tough to pass. We had a terrible pill draw, but we were able to capitalize on the start of the heat race."

A run from sixth to third place in a heat race advanced Hagar into the feature redraw. He drew the No. 5 to line up on the inside of the third row in the main event.

"We got up to fourth pretty quick and maintained there," he said. "There was a hole going into turn three that kept eating people up. Someone in front of us got into that hole and got upside down and we moved up to third. We rode around there the rest of the race. The track started going away and the car got better as the race went on, but it was too late."

The third-place result marked Hagar's fifth podium of the season, including his fourth straight.

Hagar will join the USCS Series this Friday at Buckshot Speedway in Clanton, Ala., and Saturday at East Alabama Motor Speedway in Phenix City, Ala.

"I haven't been to Buckshot Speedway so it's always exciting to see a new track," he said. "East Alabama is where I got my first win. It was a special night. It was Father's Day Weekend in 2007. I enjoy racing there."

Alex Pokorski seizes spot on PDTR 360 Sprint Car podium

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) June 18, 2024 – After enduring a relatively low-key start to the 2024 Akright Auto Plymouth Dirt Track Racing – Midwest Sprint Car Association 360 Sprint Car campaign, Alex Pokorski had everything planted full speed ahead as a spirited charge produced a podium showing in A-main competition Saturday, June 15 at The Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wis.

Pokorski opened the second full PDTR 360 Sprint Car program of the 2024 campaign by topping the 27-car field to earn his first fast qualifier award of the season with a tour of 12.450 seconds around the venerable third-mile clay oval.

After starting and finishing fourth in the third PDTR-MSA heat race, Pokorski began the 25-lap main event from the eighth starting spot. The fifth-year Sprint Car racer was on the move from the start as he advanced past Justin Erickson to secure fourth on lap 3.

On lap 6, eventual race winner Ben Schmidt powered past to briefly push Pokorski back to fifth. After racing in close quarters with Justin Erickson and Brandon Berth over the next 14 laps, the West Bend, Wis. driver finally nailed down fourth place by passing Erickson on lap 20.

Four laps later, Pokorski slipped past T.J. Haddy to steal the third spot on the second-to-last lap of the race. Pokorski held on to secure a podium position with a third-place showing in the caution-free race.

“In qualifying, both laps felt really fast, so I figured I had a good shot at quick time,” Pokorski said. “The feature went well, and it felt really nice to have a solid night capped with a podium finish.”

In his second start and first full program of the 2024 campaign in the seat of Spyder Akright’s 53A car, Paul Pokorski qualified 17th overall with a lap of 12.943 seconds. The 32-year racer advanced from seventh to sixth in the second PDTR-MSA heat race, but fell one spot short of transferring to the 25-lap main event.

Paul Pokorski led the first five laps of the 12-lap PDTR-MSA B main before a caution flag was displayed for a spin involving Joseph Hintz in turn four. On the restart, Kurt Davis powered past Paul and assumed the lead. Over the next few laps Kevin Karnitz and Ellie Hensley shot past. However, Paul held on to finish fourth and secure a transfer spot into the 25-lap A main.

The 2014 Midwest Sprint Car Association Masters Series champion started 19th and wound up 17th in the caution-free 25-lap PDTR-MSA A-main.

“I felt a little rusty early on in the night,” Paul said. “The car felt pretty good in the B main, but we had a minor fuel pickup issue that cost us a win there. In the feature, the car was a little too tight. We’re going to try a few different things when Spyder gets in the car next week and probably leave those changes in for me the following week if everything goes as planned. We had some fun and went home in one piece, which is sort of the goal with the 53A car. It helps keep racing fun when you don’t have to thrash all week!”

The Alex Pokorski-Akright Auto Racing Team is set to compete with the Akright Auto PDTR-MSA 360 Sprint Cars at The Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, June 22, along with the Badger Midgets, Grand Nationals and B Mods.

Spectator gates will open at 4:30 p.m. with qualifying at 5:30 p.m. and racing at 6 p.m.

Post makes headway in PDTR 360 Sprint Car competition

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) June 18, 2024 – For just the second time in 2024, Randy Post tasted Akright Auto Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Car A-main action and came away with an expanded array of notes to carry forward on Saturday, June 15 at The Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wis.

Post opened up the night by qualifying 14th overall in the 27-car PDTR-Midwest Sprint Car Association 360 Sprint Car field with a lap of 12.860 seconds. The third-year Sprint Car racer then started and finished fifth in the second PDTR-MSA eight-lap heat race to earn a transfer spot to the 25-lap A main.

“The car felt really good in qualifying and the heat race,” Post said. “I struggled a little in the very beginning of the heat race, which caused us to lose one or two spots right at the start. Due to the misfortune of the 09 car [Clayton Rossmann], we were able to finish in the final transfer spot in the heat, which took a lot of weight off my shoulders on not having to run a very stacked B main.”

The Oostburg, Wis. rolled off from the 11th starting spot in the 22-car PDTR-MSA 360 Sprint Car main event and held his own throughout the swift, caution-free race to come home with a solid 16th-place showing in a race won by Ben Schmidt.

“Our starting spot in the feature was very nice, but early on in the race one of our shocks went bad and my car would not handle," Post said. "I went into the feature with the goal to hold my own and try to prove to myself that we can run with the big guys even if we aren't supposed to. It helps greatly running with the top half of the field seeing how they are attacking each corner on the track and how aggressively they are driving each other. I know when I am comfortable, that’s how I can expect the racing to be.
“The A main was very clean and competitive and I would love to see all of our races go like that the rest of the season,” he said. “I am very excited to take what we have learned in our short three-feature season to the next level to see if we can consistently be a top-10 car. If the driver can read the track better, we may have a shot at doing that.”

The Randy Post Racing Team will next be in action with the Akright Auto PDTR-MSA 360 Sprint Cars at The Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, June 22, along with the Badger Midgets, Grand Nationals and B Mods.

Spectator gates will open at 4:30 p.m. with qualifying at 5:30 p.m. and racing at 6 p.m.
Sponsorship partners and supporters of Randy Post and the 2024 Randy Post Racing Team include Luedtke Electric, Sunset Auto, Akright Auto and Oostburg Automotive.
The Randy Post Racing pit crew members are Kirby and Nicole Post, Tiffany and Thomas Chamberlian, Brendan Ostrowski, Erin Schneider, Colton Chamberlian, Heidi Haver and the Kaat Racing family.

Brown highlights weekend campaign with WoO top-ten at Knoxville; All eyes on Huset’s Speedway

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. (June 18, 2024) - It was a slow start to the weekend for “Blackjack” Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing, but as most veterans do, the Higginsville, Missouri, native rebounded in a hurry, eventually concluding their trek through the heart of the Midwest with back-to-back top-ten appearances, all of which highlighted with a top-ten against the Greatest Show On Dirt at the Sprint Car Capital of the World on Saturday, June 15.

Brown, ace of the Casey’s, FVP, Andy's Frozen Custard, Impact Signs Awnings and Wraps, Mt. Dew Overdrive, Ditzfeld Transfer, No. 21 sprint car, finished sixth in his World of Outlaws top-ten, improving four positions after starting tenth on the A-Main grid. In total, the World of Outlaws spent two days at Knoxville Raceway, commencing their Knoxville Nationals precursor one night prior on Friday, June 14. Brown raced on to finish 20th, forced to be a backmarker after losing his brakes due to contact from a mud clot.

Brown’s final highlight of the weekend occurred at Huset’s Speedway in Brandon, South Dakota, on Sunday, June 16, finishing eighth after starting one position worse. Although not Brown’s top result of the weekend, it may prove most beneficial, as the Higginsville, Missouri, native is set to spend four days at the Huset’s high banks beginning Wednesday, June 19.

“Overall, a pretty decent weekend for our Casey’s | FVP team, although the pill draw wasn’t too kind to us on either night,” Brown acknowledged. “We managed to put ourselves in a position to start 13th on Friday, but on the third or fourth lap, a mud clot came up and knocked our left front brake line off, so we were forced to finish the race with no brakes. An unfortunate set of circumstances, for sure.

“Saturday night was better for us starting tenth. We actually worked our way to fifth before finishing sixth. Sometimes those pill draws can get you buried before your night even begins. Despite the fact, I feel like we did a great job in keeping ourselves in solid positions all night long. Looking forward to a big week at Huset’s Speedway. Hopefully all of the fans come out and support this massive event. The racing should be great.”

ON DECK:
Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing will continue their 2024 campaign with four nights at Huset’s Speedway in Brandon, South Dakota, beginning with the $100,000-to-win High Bank Hustle on Wednesday and Thursday, June 19-20.

Cottage Grove Speedway triumph highlights strong Road to Dirt Cup for Cox and Bates-Hamilton Racing

By Gary Thomas

Cottage Grove, Oregon…Justyn Cox and Bates-Hamilton Racing put forth a strong showing during the Road to Cup, highlighting it all with a victory at Cottage Grove Speedway this past Friday with the NARC 410 Sprint Car Series.

“It’s been a fun week up here so far on our trip North,” Cox stated. “Anytime you can run five straight nights fairly stress free makes it a big win. Setting a track record, winning some heats and a main event made it a really good week for us.”

Cox began the Fastest 5 Days in Motorsports on June 12th by setting a new track record at Southern Oregon Speedway, before running third in his heat race. He then captured victory in the Beacon Wealth Strategies Dash to earn the pole of the feature.

Early on he stalked leader Tanner Holmes, until a red flag came out for an incident involving Angelique Bell, which brought an end to the race. He was officially scored in second, claiming his best result of the NARC campaign up until that point.

Bell was taken to the hospital for burns suffered and is currently on her road to recovery. The entire BHR team sends its best thoughts and wishes to Angelique and the Bell family for a full and speedy recovery.

Traveling North to Douglas County Dirt Track in Roseburg on Thursday June 13th, Cox put together another consistent outing by qualifying eighth, finishing third in his heat race and sixth in the main event.

This all set the stage for the big night at Cottage Grove Speedway on Friday June 14th. The 30-year-old driver timed-in fifth overall and captured a win in his heat race aboard the Lippert Construction/ Dan Ewart Sales/ ADS No. 42x mount.

A third-place effort in the Dash then placed him on the inside of row two for the 30-lap NARC 410 feature. Cox quickly jumped into second and with lapped traffic coming into play he closed on leader Cole Macedo.

Stalking the leaders’ every move, the pair marched through lapped traffic, with the crowd on hand showing their appreciation. The thrilling feature came right down to the wire and on lap 25, Cox blasted to the inside, grabbing the lead that he would never relinquish.

The Clarksburg driver hung strong over the final circuits and crossed under the Ed Entz checkered flag for victory at the helm of the Diamond Plastics/ LITHIA FORD/CHRYSLER/DODGE/JEEP – ROSEBURG mount.

Following the big win, Cox capped the solid Fastest 5 Days in Motorsports with a pair of sixth place finishes at Willamette Speedway on Saturday and Grays Harbor Raceway in Elma on Sunday.

“Cottage Grove was the highlight of the week for us, and it was awesome to knock off another NARC win,” commented Cox. “I’ve always enjoyed Cottage Grove and it’s a track I have a lot of time on. Josh had the car perfect, and I was able to drive with ease. We were only a few points out of the Speedweek title and if Medford had counted, we were only three points away from winning it.”

Cox and Bates-Hamilton Racing will now get set to tackle the 52nd annual Jim Raper Memorial Super Dirt Cup. The three-night show at Skagit Speedway in Alger, Washington takes place this Thursday through Saturday and dishes out a cool $62,000 to the winner of the finale.

“I’m excited to head for Dirt Cup at Skagit,” Cox continued. “I think we’ve been working on a really good package that I’ve grown comfortable with. I believe we can continue this good momentum and have an awesome week at the Dirt Cup.”

Last season saw Cox drive forward in the final night’s A-main to earn the Williams Roofing Hard Charger Award. Bates-Hamilton Racing was also victorious during the opening prelim of the event in 2022.

All three nights of the Super Dirt Cup can be seen live via FloRacing.

Skagit Speedway

By Erik List

Alger, WA – Another local driver who is going for the $62,000 payday during the 52nd Annual Jim Raper Memorial Super Dirt Cup is Burlington, Washington’s own Justin Youngquist.
Youngquist is no stranger to Skagit Speedway, he competes in the KarMart 410 Sprint Car Division where he drives the #95 car for owners Lisa and Matt Dynes. Through five 410 races this year, Youngquist has finished in the top five twice, including a second place and five top 10’s. He currently sits fourth in points, only 77 points behind the top spot.
"I think we're better than last year, but I'm definitely more confident this year than I was last year just by how we've been running," Youngquist said. Last year at Dirt Cup, the Burlington native made the A-Main during the opening night and finished 19th, missed it on the second night, finishing sixth in the B-Main, but made the A-Main on the final night and finished 20th. He went on to say that last year “wasn’t anything to write home about...it was just kinda flat.”
Heading into the 2024 Dirt Cup Youngquist feels more confident about the weekend. "I used to get a lot more nervous than I do now, because I think I used to overthink everything too much…I try not to overthink at all because I think that’s super, super easy to do…I just think making a plan is a huge mistake. Like as much as you have to prepare yourself, I think there is a difference between preparing yourself and then having a plan because then you're gonna be all frustrated if your plan doesn't go like you expect it to. So, I think this year, as far as the nervousness or whatever, I don't really think I'm nervous. I think we're running better this year than we were last year, for sure."
This year Youngquist looks to make the show every night and finish in the top 10. He also stated, “I think we can be more competitive.”
Youngquist did not race in the Fastest Five Days with the NARC 410 Sprint Car Series.

Kale Drake Clinches 11th Annual POWRi Illinois SPEEDWeek Championship

Belleville, IL. (6/16/24) Notching a podium placement in three straight nights of Land of Lincoln adrenaline-fueled action, Kale Drake, of Collinsville Oklahoma, would seize the moment to claim the 11th Annual POWRi Illinois SPEEDWeek presented by Start2Finish.

Sporting the Keith Kunz-Curb Agajanian Motorsports, Eibach Racing, KKM Giveback Classic, Toyota Racin Development, LYNK Chassis, and Toyota Racing Engine #97K; Kale Drake adds the accomplishment of SPEEDWeek champions to his long list of growing conquests while also snapping the three-year streak of teammate and runner-up placement in the 2024 weeklong POWRi mini-championship in Cannon McIntosh.

Beginning the eventual three-night stretch of action with a strong third-place finish at Coles County Speedway, in Mattoon Illinois, Kale would find himself advancing seven positions to contend for the victory in an instant classic Illinois SPEEDWeek debut night that would witness reigning POWRi National Midget Champion Karter Sarff win.

Keeping the front-running contention flowing the following night at Jacksonville Speedway, the 2023 POWRi Outlaw Micro Champion Kale Drake would again battle among the lead pack after starting eighth on the field only finishing one spot shy of winning to Jacob Denny who claimed the feature checkers.

Wrapping up the SPEEDWeek Championship at Macon Speedway on Saturday night after a Lincoln cancelation, Kale would claim the night’s Victory Fuel High Point Qualifier award to start pole position for the feature race. Leading twelve laps of the thirty-lap feature, Drake would again end the night runner-up placement to eventual winner Cannon McIntosh.

Proving consistency claims championships by contending for the win every night, Kale Drake would win the 11th Annual POWRi Illinois SPEEDWeek presented by Start2Finish by a mere ten points over current POWRi National Midget League championship leader Cannon McIntosh in a great team battle for the title.

Final Top-Ten for the POWRi National Midget League 2024 Illinois SPEEDWeek Championship Standings: 1. 97K-Kale Drake, 2. 71K-Cannon McIntosh, 3. 97-Gavin Miller, 4. 21K-Karter Sarff, 5. 43-Gunnar Setser, 6. 7Z-Zoe Pearce, 7. 56-Mitchell Davis, 8. 66-Jayden Clay, 9. 25-Jacob Denney, 10. 7X-Thomas Meseraull.

Heading into the second half of the season for the POWRi National Midget League, can teammates Kale Drake and Cannon McIntosh continue to ride the hot streaks of momentum as Kale continues to skyrocket up the rankings in his rookie season while Cannon currently resides atop the 2024 point championship standings.

Mallett Caps ASCS National Tour Speedweek With Second-Place Performance

Inside Line Promotions - POCOLA, Okla. (June 17, 2024) - Jordon Mallett produced a top-10 result during all four ASCS National Tour Speedweek races last week with the best saved for last.

Mallett and Brandon Anderson Motorsports posted a sixth-place finish last Tuesday at Texarkana 67 Speedway in Texarkana, Ark.; ninth-place results on Thursday at Creek County Speedway in Sapulpa, Okla., and Friday at Arrowhead Speedway in Colcord, Okla.; and a second-place showing on Saturday at Tri-State Speedway.

The strong week landed Mallett tied for third place in the Speedweek standings.

"After Saturday night, big picture, we're in a better direction," Mallett said. "We were always good right out of the gate every night. We'd qualify good and heat race good. Then it was like in the feature we'd start strong, but not be good at the end."

Mallett qualified third quickest in his group and placed second in a heat race before advancing from eighth to sixth place in the A Main at Texarkana 67 Speedway.

"We finished sixth, but had a fourth-place car," he said. "I should have moved up to the top of the race track toward the end of the race and we'd have preserved fourth. We got blasted on a restart by a couple of guys who jumped up there and I didn't get up quick enough."

Mallett was second quickest in his qualifying group before he won a heat race and placed sixth in the dash at Creek County Speedway.

"We rolled into Creek and timed in good and heat raced good," he said. "I made an error in the dash. They had watered the track before the dash. I got too aggressive and ducked down too low going into turn one. I got into some grease and spun it out. We started sixth in the feature and we were good early on running third or fourth. About the last eight or 10 laps the car started to go away and I couldn't do anything right. It didn't matter where I ran on the track, it was like we threw a boat anchor out. Come to find out we had a bleeder break."

The team timed in second quickest in a qualifying group before finishing second in a heat race at Arrowhead Speedway.

"We were good in qualifying and the heat race, but we missed it in the feature," he said. "We could move around, but got too tight running the bottom when everybody moved down. We struggled on the top at times as well. It was just an off night in that feature."

It all came together on Saturday at Tri-State Speedway, where Mallett qualified second quickest in his group and ended third in a heat race before rallying from eighth to second place in the A Main.

"We timed in good and heat raced all right, but having to start on the inside in the heat race was not ideal," he said. "In the feature it was a cumulative effect of we were wanting to get aggressive to find something to move forward because the features had been our weak point all Speedweek. We said let's go with what we think we need and go way past that. We swung for the fences and wound up with a really good race car. We look forward to moving on because we found what helps us claw forward and be more comfortable in a feature."

The second-place showing tied a career best for Brandon Anderson Motorsports with the ASCS National Tour.

Mallett and the team will compete this Saturday at Batesville Motor Speedway in Locust Grove, Ark., with the ASCS National Tour. He placed fourth at the track in 2022 during his most recent visit.

Estenson Posts Another Top 10 at Huset's Speedway With Big Week on Tap

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (June 17, 2024) - Tim Estenson climbed to third in the Huset's Speedway championship standings following another top-10 outing at the track on Sunday.

Estenson's ninth-place result marked his fourth top 10 of the season at the high-banked oval, which is tied for the second most through a half-dozen races. It was also his third top 10 in the last four races at the track.

"We were extremely happy with the results," he said. "It'd have been nice to get a little farther, but qualifying is so crucial and we got knocked back a bit there."

Estenson qualified 13 th quickest out of the 30 competitors to open the racing program.

"I was hoping to draw a little better and pulled the No. 53," he said. "I felt decent in qualifying, but we needed to be a little better at the beginning of the night. We've been running well in the heat races at Huset's this year and we won our heat race. I went into the feature open-minded."

Estenson maneuvered from 12 th to ninth in the main event.

"We've been battling a little tightness with the car and we've been trying to figure that out," he said. "I think Jack (Dover) has found more this week that will help us going into High Bank Nationals. Overall, we're happy with finishing consistently in the top 10."

Next up for the team is arguably the biggest week of the season with the $100,000-to-win Huset's Hustle on Wednesday and Thursday and the $250,000-to-win BillionAuto.com Huset's High Bank Nationals presented by MENARDS on Friday and Saturday at Huset's Speedway. All four nights are with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series.

"The Huset's weekly program is super tough," Estenson said. "When you add 50 other top guys in the country it makes it a lot harder. I know we have what it takes to run with them. You have to treat it like any other race and stay calm, keep your nerves down, focus and try to make the most out of every lap on the track."

SPONSOR SPOTLIGHT - Yamalube

In the mid-1960s Mr. Leo Lake, National Service Manager for then Yamaha International Corporation realized the sportcycle market needed a high quality oil that enhanced reliability, durability and dependability because "off-the-shelf" automotive oils simply didn't live up to Yamaha's standards.

After some service issues in the early '60s, Leo pursued the lubrication side of the problem for the next two years, convinced it had to do with lubrication and not the engine itself. After having tested hundreds of combinations Leo developed a blend that in 1967 became the iconic YAMALUBE brand and to this day we still embrace his uncompromising commitment to quality and performance.

Simply put, Yamalube is the only oil "built around" the unique demands, operating characteristics, and applications of not only Yamaha engines, but all Powersport engines. For more information, visit http://www.yamaha-motor.com .

"Yamalube makes top-of-the-line lubricants and cleaning products that help our race car operate well and look nice," Estenson said.

Estenson would like to thank Estenson Racing, Truline Logistics, Yamalube, Arai Helmets, JDP Electric, JDP Automation and Backlund Plumbing for their continued support.

 

 

Kaleb Johnson Records Top Five at Knoxville and Top 10 at Huset's

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (June 17, 2024) - Kaleb Johnson pieced together another consistent weekend as he heads into arguably the biggest week of his season.

Johnson hustled from 12 th to fourth in a Dennis Gainey owned 360ci winged sprint car on Saturday at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, before he scored a sixth-place result on Sunday at Huset's Speedway.

It marked Johnson's sixth straight top 10 to open the season at the high-banked track, where he leads the championship standings by 37 points.

"It was a good, consistent night," he said. "We qualified good and had a good run in the heat race. Then we had a good draw for the feature."

Johnson qualified third quickest and advanced from fourth to third place in a heat race. He pulled the No. 4 during the feature redraw to line up on the outside of the second row in the main event.

"I got a little tripped up on the cushion a few times," he said. "I worked my way back up to fourth. The restart with two laps to go didn't fall in my favor. I made a mistake on the last lap trying to slide Chase Randall back for fourth. I didn't have the momentum and it cost me a spot. All in all, it was a good night to roll the car into the trailer."

Johnson was also efficient on Saturday at Knoxville Raceway, where he timed in 17 th quickest and won a heat race. He capped the night with a rally from 12 th to fourth place. It was the third-most positions gained.

"It ended well," he said. "We just didn't qualify the greatest and that hurt us in the end. We had a good heat race as we started on the pole and walked away with it. We were a little tight at the beginning of the feature. The race car got better as the race went on. I was able to bide my time and pass cars when I needed. The top was super tricky and I was able to make it work. I got a couple of lucky breaks and by the end of it I came out fourth."

Four huge nights of World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series racing at Huset's Speedway are on tap with the $100,000-to-win Huset's Hustle on Wednesday and Thursday and the $250,000-to-win BillionAuto.com Huset's High Bank Nationals presented by MENARDS on Friday and Saturday.

"You always get excited to run with the Outlaws, but this year we have a little more confidence," Johnson said. "I think the goal is to make all four features. It's a good opportunity to race against the best in the world. I feel pretty confident. Consistency and good runs at Huset's have boosted my confidence this year."

QUICK RESULTS -

June 15 - Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa - Qualifying: 17; Heat race: 1 (1); Feature: 4 (12).

June 16 - Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D. - Qualifying: 3; Heat race: 3 (4); Feature: 6 (4).

5th at Millstream Highlights Busy Week for Joel Myers Jr

PETERSEN MEDIA: Continuing to pilot Brodie Hayward’s Shiti Coolers backed no. 19 entry, Joel Myers Jr took part in the back half of Ohio Speedweek and a fifth place finish on Friday night highlighted the busy stretch.

“It was great to get to so many different tracks for the first time last week, and really work on running in the slick,” Joel Myers Jr said. “We had some good runs, and we had some struggles, but Noah West and I are working well together.”

Wednesday night the team checked in at Sharon Speedway and the early part of the night was a bit of a struggle as Myers Jr struggled in qualifying and was unable to race out of his heat race and transfer into the feature.

Forced into one of the twin ‘B Mains’, the Sebastopol, CA driver made some noise as he raced into fourth and chased after one of the two transfers berths that were up for grabs in the Shiti Coolers/Eddie Gillstrap Motors/RPM Chassis backed entry.

Ending his night in the ‘B’, the team traveled to Muskingum County Speedway on Thursday night. Again, struggling in time trials, Myers Jr was able to successfully race out of his heat on this night before finishing 18th in the feature event.

Friday night saw the team make their way to Millstream Speedway as the Findlay, OH track was back operational after sitting dormant for a few years. Myers Jr took a liking to it as he timed in fifth fastest in his flight, before advancing to a third-place finish in his heat race.

Lining up 12th in the feature event, Myers Jr came to life late in the feature event. Working the bottom groove on the slick surface, the NZ Champ was able to slowly pick up ground with each passing lap.

When the checkered flag few, Myers Jr capped the night off with a fifth place finish.

Saturday night marked the final night of Ohio Speedweek, as well as the final night of action for the week for Hayward Motorsports. Checking in at Atomic Speedway in Chillicothe, OH, Myers Jr timed in sixth quickest in his qualifying group and then raced to 5th place finish in his heat race.

Locking into the feature event, Myers Jr rolled off the starting grid from the 19th starting spot. As the final race of the week came to life, Myers Jr slowly worked his way forward as he settled into 15th as laps clicked off.

A late caution stacked the field back up with just four laps to go, and the ensuing restart saw Myers Jr make a couple of bold moves as he forged his way to an 11th place finish to cap the week off.

“It is definitely a process to get used to these cars, the engines, and new tracks,” Myers Jr added. “We are definitely heading the right direction, and I am very much looking forward to another Speedweek setting this week.”

Joel Myers Jr Racing would like to thank All About Fire Protection, Hi-Plains Building Division, DirtDudes Excavating, Carbon Safety, System 1 Ignition, Weld, FK Rod Ends, Blud Lubricants, Smith Ti, Culvert Ops, Economy Plumbing, Cartronics, NorCal Powersports, Y2K Gaming, Shark Racing Engines, Lucas Oil, Vaider, Walker Performance Filtration, ShopRico.Com, Tiner Hirst Enterprise, Kaeding Performance, Triple X Race Co., and Ogio, for their continued support.

Tanner Carrick Set for Jim Raper Memorial Super Dirt Cup at Skagit Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA: Traveling with the Northern Auto Racing Club to Oregon and Washington the last week, Tanner Carrick showed a lot of speed during Speedweek as he now sets his sights on the Jim Raper Super Dirt Cup which is set to go green this Thursday night at Skagit Speedway.

“We had good speed during Speedweek, but had bad luck in the features early in the week,” Tanner Carrick explained. “The last couple of nights, we didn’t get timed in well, and that hurt our night.”

Carrick kicked the week-long trip north off on Wednesday night at Southern Oregon Speedway in Medford, OR. With the race ultimately being deemed complete at the 13-lap marker, the Lincoln, CA driver was credited with a fourth-place finish aboard the CVC/Cemex/California Waterfowl backed No. 83T.

Heading to Douglas County Speedway in Roseburg, OR on Thursday night, Carrick got off to a blazing quick start as he timed in fastest in time trials, but he ran into some issues in the feature event and he was ultimately relegated to an 11th place finish.

Earning quick time honors again on Friday night at Cottage Grove Speedway, Carrick eventually took the green flag from the sixth starting position after a sixth-place finish in the Dash.

On the bullring, Carrick worked hard searching for grip but he did slip back a few positions and capped the night off with a ninth place finish.

Saturday and Sunday saw Carrick’s qualifying efforts take a big hit. After being one of the fastest during the first three rounds he was 14th and 15th during the final two nights of action which makes things tough with NARC’s format.

The Lincoln, CA driver did what he could on a very fast Willamette Speedway in Lebanon, OR on Saturday night as he finished 13th, and during a nearly nonstop affair in Elma, WA he finished 12th in the feature to cap his Speedweek.

“Heading into Dirt Cup, we definitely are going need to be on our game in qualifying, and we need to have things go our way as well,” Carrick said. “It’s a tough race, but I know we have the speed to compete. Thanks to my team for working so hard all week and making this trip possible.”

Tanner Carrick would like to thank CVC, Cemex, California Waterfowl, Interstate Oil, D.R. Horton, Conti, Harris and Sloan, Hanson Truss, TC Guide Service, Eddie’s Lincoln Auto Body, Simpson Strong-Tie, A&A Concrete Supply, Kaeding Performance, and Arai for their continued support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Starts: 29, Wins: 4, Top 5’s: 16, Top 10’s: 20

Andy Forsberg 11th at Antioch Speedway After Late Race Misstep Knocks Him Out of Top-5

PETERSEN MEDIA: Making his way to Antioch Speedway on Saturday night with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour, Andy Forsberg endured a lap 25 misstep in the feature event while running in the Top-5 that ultimately regulated him to an 11th place finish in the feature event.

“I just was not very good all night long,” Andy Forsberg said. “We didn’t time in well, and in the feature event we did get going but I went looking for a little more and smoked into turn one and two too hot and ended up spinning out trying to make the top work.”

18 cars made the trek to the Contra Costa County Fairgrounds, and Forsberg got the night started by timing in 10th fastest in qualifying time trials.

Taking the green flag for his heat race from inside the second row, Forsberg finished third which locked him into the 10th starting position for the 35-lap feature event.

The race’s initial start, and then a lap four restart didn’t quite go Forsberg’s way as he dropped back to 13th, but a restart on lap eight saw the Auburn, CA driver jump into sixth aboard the Meridian Cameras/PCH/Oroville Tax backed entry.

Getting into fourth on the 15th lap, Forsberg continued to search around the speedway for grip. With eventual race winner Braden Chiaramonte making the high side work all around the speedway, Forsberg opted to move to the top and try and make it work, but he admittedly didn’t enter the corner right on the 25th lap and it resulted in him spinning to a stop.

Going back to 14th with 10-lpas to go, Forsberg was able to make up a few positions as he ended up finishing in the 11th position.

“Honestly the race track was prepared well, and it just progressively slicked off as the night went along, but we had a couple of different lane options,” he added. “I got to moving around late in the feature searching for grip, and figured I’d try the top but I made an error.”

Andy Forsberg and PHR Racing would like to thank Meridian Cameras, Pacific Highway Rentals, Oroville Tax, Wilkie Masonry, Western Traffic Supply, PitStopUSA, Red Line Oil, FK Rod Ends, Autism Awareness, Parking and Transportation Group, Western Featherlite, 1st Vanguard, Highway Specialty Co., and KBJ Catering for their continued support.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-16, Wins-1, Top 5’s-6, Top 10’s-7

ON TAP: Forsberg will return to action this Saturday night at Placerville Speedway for a night of weekly points racing.

Swanson Finishes Fifth at Port Royal Saturday

In Doran Binks Racing’s Mission Foods No. 77

And Is Point Leader With One-Third of the Season Complete

PORT ROYAL, Pa., June 17 — Thanks to a solid top-five finish in Saturday night’s USAC Silver Crown race at Port Royal Speedway, Kody Swanson and Doran Binks Racing remain in the lead in the series’ driver and entrant point standings with a third of the season complete.

Driving Doran Binks Racing’s dirt Silver Crown car, which is a Maxim chassis powered by a Hampshire Chevrolet engine, Swanson qualified third for the 50-lap race for sponsors that include Mission Foods, Glenn Farms, and Wilke Orthodontics. He was only 0.127 of a second off the new track record of 19.816 seconds that Brady Bacon set to better the mark Mitchel Moles established here last year and earn the pole. Daison Pursley, who ended up winning the race on the last lap, qualified second.

Logan Seavey, who won the two previous USAC Silver Crown races on Port Royal’s half-mile dirt oval, and Justin Grant managed to pass Swanson on the first lap before the first of two caution flags waved with one lap down for C.J. Leary and Nathan Moore, who crashed low in Turn 4.

For most of the race Swanson had his hands full defending his position from Matt Westfall, who hounded him almost constantly. Swanson tried both the high and the low grooves to spurt away from Westfall, who preferred the low groove.

Westfall made a pass stick working lap 13 to push Swanson, a native of Kingsburg, Calif., who now lives in Indianapolis, to sixth. However, seconds later Seavey, who had been third behind Bacon and Pursley, went into the infield with a mechanical issue that caused his car to lose fuel. After a stop in the work area he reported to the tail and went on to finish tenth, but his issue put Swanson back in fifth place for the restart. Caution flag laps didn’t count on Saturday.

Moles threatened to pass Swanson around lap 18, but Swanson hung tough in fifth place. At the halfway point he was 1.134 seconds behind Westfall and 1.174 ahead of Moles, and three laps later he set his fastest lap of the race.

Grant passed Bacon for the lead on lap 30 in Turn 1 and two laps later Swanson got by Westfall for fourth place. Westfall stuck to him like glue, however, and he passed Swanson on lap 40 to push Swanson, who is the winningest driver in series history, back to fifth.

Pursley passed Bacon for second on lap 33 and then he drove around the outside of Grant in Turn 4 on the last lap for his first career USAC Silver Crown victory. Grant finished second and Bacon placed third for the third year in a row. Westfall was fourth and Swanson finished fifth for the second year in a row.

Chase Dietz passed Moles for sixth on lap 49. Alex Bright, Briggs Danner, and Seavey rounded out the top 10.

The time of the race was 28:53.852, so Pursley broke Seavey’s 50-lap USAC Silver Crown record of 29.32.10 for this track.

“Last year we were loose here and this time we were too tight,” Swanson said afterwards. “I need to get better at helping to figure out how to be more in the middle next year set-up wise. The drivers and teams in this series are so good. It’s hard just trying to figure out the best set-up and how the track will change as the race progresses.

“But I’m grateful for all the work the Doran Binks guys do to keep us in the hunt and give us a chance,” he added. “And we’re all grateful for the support of our sponsors like Mission Foods, Glenn Farms, and Wilke Orthodontics.

“I moved around and tried all the lines trying to find out where we could be faster,” he added. “Sometimes when I was high on the cushion in Turn 3 I only had one wheel on the ground, but then the others came back down so that was all good. We’ll just try again another day.”

The 50-lap race was the finale of an open-wheel show called the Eastern Blast Presented by Bobby Rahal Toyota of Lewistown, as the non-wing USAC AMSOIL sprint cars and the track’s Weikert Livestock 410 winged sprint cars shared the card.

The event was streamed live by Flo Racing.

The next USAC Silver Crown race is June 21 at Madison International Speedway in Oregon, Wis. Swanson has won three of the four USAC Silver Crown races ever held at that half-mile paved oval, including last year’s race.

There are two USAC Silver Crown events in July: July 4 at the Terre Haute (Ind.) Action Track, and a two-day show July 19-20 at Salt City Speedway in Hutchinson, Kan. The series returns to Pennsylvania for a race at Jennerstown on Aug. 10. The complete schedule can be found at usacracing.com.

Braden Chiaramonte Charges From 17th to Win First Career Sprint Car Feature

PETERSEN MEDIA: What looked to be a forgettable night early during Saturday’s Sprint Car Challenge Tour event at Antioch Speedway turned out to be a night that Braden Chiaramonte will remember forever. When it was all said and done, the 17-year-old charged from 17th to score his first career winged sprint car feature event win as he now finds himself atop the season point standings.

With 18 cars on hand as the series made their one and only stop at the Contra Costa County Fairgrounds facility, Chiaramonte again found himself making his first ever visit to a track.

Timing in 11th fastest, Chiaramonte lined up in the second row of his heat race aboard the Tiner Hirst Enterprise/HRP/Fisher Racing Engines backed No. 94TH entry.

Moving into second when the race came to life, Chiaramonte locked horns with fellow youngster, Austin Wood as they duked it out for the top spot. While the battle heated up, bad luck struck Chiaramonte as his mount bellowed a huge puff of smoke and his engine expired under the hood of his car.

Pushing back to the pit area, the Tiner Hirst Enterprise team went to work in hurry to get a new bullet bolted into the frame rails of the No. 94TH. Making the swap with no issues, the youngster was set for the 35-lap feature event though he would take the green flag from the 17th starting position.

Up into 13th when the first caution flag flew on the fourth lap, Chiaramonte went to work on the high side of the speedway when the green flag was displayed back to the field, and jumped up into 10th.

Another caution taking place behind him on the eighth lap, but the field back in double-file formation again, and Chiaramonte continued to pound the curb as he he powered into fifth, before taking over fourth on just the race’s 11th lap.

Moving into third a lap later, Chiaramonte was able to get around Michael Faccinto for second just before the race’s halfway point as his sole attention moved to race leader, and veteran ace, Sean Becker.

With Becker committed to the low groove, Chiaramonte continued to make speed up top where nobody else could and closed in on the leader as he continued his magnificent surge to the front.

On the 22nd lap, Chiaramonte pulled alongside Becker as they raced into turns three and four and the momentum gave him the drive off of turn four to power into the race lead on the 23rd lap, as the caution then flew two laps later, and put Becker and Chiaramonte on the front row.

The restart saw Becker mount a bid for the lead back, but Chiaramonte never flinched as he countered the veterans advances and drove away from the field.

Hitting his marks on the slick surface, Chiaramonte went on to cap off a memorable run as he picked up his first career winged sprint car feature event win after taking the green flag from the ninth row.

The Tiner Hirst Enterprise Racing team would like to thank Tiner Hirst Enterprise, Hepfner Racing Products, EMI, Fisher Racing Engines, System 1, Larry Davis Farms, and Slade Shocks for their continued support.

ON TAP: Chiaramonte and Tiner Hirst Enterprise will now take a cuple of weeks off and prepare for SCCT Speedweek which comes to life at Cottage Grove Speedway in Oregon on July 15th.

Westfall on the gas through Pennsylvania and New Jersey; Wisconsin doubleheader on deck
ByTyler Altmeyer
Jun 17, 2024

FOREST, Ohio (June 17, 2024) – It was a hard-fought week in Pennsylvania and New Jersey for Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports, but despite an action-packed week with some of the best non-wing open wheelers in the country, there were plenty of shining moments.

“We look forward to the Eastern Storm swing each and every year, but it’s as competitive as it gets. Can’t make any mistakes or you’ll pay for it,” Westfall explained. “We had some solid nights, just short of the top-ten column. Regardless, I am proud of our team. It’s never easy racing six straight nights, especially when factoring in travel, maintenance, and other wear and tear. Of course, we wouldn’t be in this position without Ray Marshall. He’s the backbone of this operation and we’re proud to be flying the ‘Bumblebee Express’ colors. Here’s to big results next weekend in Wisconsin.”

Whittall does the wing dance at Port Royal Speedway

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

VICENTOWN, N.J. (June 17, 2024) – There’s nothing better than a wing dance, and for Justin Whittall, he got his dance Saturday night, taming the Port Royal Speedway “Speed Palace” for his first triumph of the 2024 season, and second overall. The young man out of Vincentown, New Jersey, led every circuit at the Juniata County Fairgrounds, claiming a $5,000 payday in the process.

Getting back on the horse, Whittall, ace of the JG Kronenberger Fine Jewelry, Mid-Atlantic Transport, Pioneer Auto Body, Worldwide Bearings, Enterprise, Prime Composite Innovations, Milky Way Restaurant, No. 67 sprint car, was involved in a heavy crash at the Port halfmile just a few weeks prior to his victory. He has since taken his schedule day-to-day.

“A great comeback for our team. I was nervous, but thrilled to get it done,” Whittall admitted. “Just can’t say enough about this entire JW Motorsports team. Everyone works so hard and everyone stays positive no matter the outcome. This was a total team effort and I’m confident we can do it again very soon.

“This win goes out to my dad for Father’s Day. He makes all of this possible and we wouldn’t be here without him.”

In actuality, it was a double top-ten weekend for the Garden State wheelman, opening competition with an eighth-place score at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, on Friday, June 14; he started in the exact same position.

ON DECK: Justin Whittall and JW Motorsports will continue their 2024 campaign with visits to Williams Grove Speedway and Port Royal Speedway on Friday and Saturday, June 21-22. Whittall’s Williams Grove visit is still TBD.

Aaron Reutzel hard charges with Outlaws at Knoxville Raceway
ByTyler Altmeyer
Jun 17, 2024

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

KNOXVILLE, Iowa (June 17, 2024) – It was a slow start to the weekend for Aaron Reutzel and Ridge & Sons Racing (RSR), and despite opening their two-day World of Outlaws campaign at Knoxville Raceway with a spin while battling for a frontrunning position, the Clute, Texas, native rebounded big, concluding the Knoxville Nationals precursor with a top-ten on Saturday, June 15.

Reutzel, ace of Brian and Lisa Ridge’s Folkens Brothers Trucking, Don Long & STC, B And L Holdings, No. 87 sprinter, finished tenth in his Saturday night top-ten, rallying from deep within the field to do so. In fact, “A-Aron” started 23rd on the A-Main lineup, concluding the 25-lap contest with the evening’s Hard Charger Award for advancing the most feature positions. Reutzel earned his way into the weekend finale via third-place finish in the Last Chance Showdown – he did not transfer through his respective heat race.

As noted, it was an early race hiccup that put Reutzel out of winning contention on Friday, June 14; he eventually crossed the line 16th.

Schatz caps Knoxville doubleheader on the podium; Four days at Huset’s Speedway on deck


2024 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Standings: 2nd | 4022 (-56)

Dates: Friday and Saturday, June 14th-15th
Event: World of Outlaws Premier Chevy Dealers Clash
Series: World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series
Track: Knoxville Raceway (Knoxville, Iowa)
Donny Schatz A-Main Finishes:
Friday: 10th (21st)
Saturday: 2nd (4th)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (June 17, 2024) - Donny Schatz and Knoxville Raceway are certainly synonymous with one another, and the ten-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion and 11-time Knoxville Nationals champion proved that notion yet again during the recent weekend, not only accomplishing back-to-back top-ten appearances, but notching a podium in the process - the tenth of the 2024 season.

Schatz, ace of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing, Carquest, Advance Auto Parts, Ford Performance, Curb Records, Sage Fruit, Elliott’s Custom Trailers & Carts, Mobil 1, Hoosier, VP Racing Fuels & Tub ‘O Towels, No. 15 sprint car, finished tenth and second in his two-day Knoxville campaign, kicking off the weekend with an impressive rally from 21st to secure the aforementioned tenth-place outcome.

The Fargo, North Dakota, native finished second the following evening, Saturday, June 15, advancing a pair of positions after starting fourth on the 25-lap grid. A restart with three to go gave Schatz a much-needed opportunity to pounce, but rising star and Clovis, California, native, Corey Day, held on for the $12,000 payday.

Despite the fact, Schatz’ weekend results allowed the ten-time Series champ to reclaim second in the 2024 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series championship chase. He currently trails nine-time winner and point leader, David Gravel, by 56 markers. Schatz owns two victories on the year, as well as 26 top-ten appearances in 29 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series starts.

MITCHELLVILLE, Iowa (June 17, 2024) - It was a three-state week for Chase Randall and TKS Motorsports, taking part in a four-race agenda across Nebraska, Iowa, and South Dakota on Tuesday, June 11, through Sunday, June 16. Busy, indeed, but the lap time will prove beneficial, as four nights at Huset’s Speedway stand ahead including a $250,000 potential Saturday night.

Four starts resulted in a pair of top-ten appearances for the Waco, Texas, native, highlighting their entire slate with a fourth-place performance at Huset’s Speedway in Brandon, South Dakota, on Sunday, June 16. A perfect test session for the upcoming High Bank Hustle and High Bank Nationals, Randall rallied four spots in the Sunday night showcase, qualifying for main event competition with a fourth-place score during his respective heat race.

Randall’s week commenced with a seventh-place outcome in High Limit Racing’s $55,555-to-win Eagle Nationals at Eagle Raceway in Eagle, Nebraska, on Tuesday, June 11. It was Randall’s second High Limit Racing top-ten in as many tries, finishing third in the Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race opener at I-70 Speedway.
Although not resulting in a top-ten, the Texan was one spot short, finishing 11th in a World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series start at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday, June 15 - he started 17th.

“A lot of running around this week, but we’re happy with our results. We have a big week ahead, so we’ll work to continue these great results at Huset’s Speedway beginning Wednesday,” Troy Renfro, owner of the Albaugh - Your Alternative, Iowa Barnstormers, Des Moines Industrial Products, Jersey Freeze Ice Cream, AL Driveline, TJ Forged, No. 2KS sprint car, said. “Chase is doing a phenomenal job. His work ethic is unmatched and we’re confident even bigger things are ahead for this team this year.”

"It's been a long time," said Reinke as he climbed out of the Bob Hood owned 10W in victory lane. "I can't breath. I am really grateful for the opportunity our team has given me."
Runner-up Paul Nienhauser of Chapin, IL, was somewhat grateful with his finish after winning his heat and dash earning him a pole starting berth. "I thank the Wilmot fans. They're awesome up here and I hope they liked the show. A second place for us as a team is pretty good."

Nimee came up to the final podium spot in third from eighth.

"I guess I showed them this old guy can run the high side," Cox said, noting his rim-riding path to the victory. "It's been a while. It's cool running with these kids when I am in my 60s. I have to thank my family, crew, sponsors, everyone, and these great Wilmot fans. Looking forward to next week (Sunday, June 22) when I will be doing the double and running a USAC sprint and this car, too."
Cox held the point on every circuit from his outside row one starting spot. The run was not without interruptions as five laps in, New Berlin's Austin Hansen got upside down in turn three after tangling with a spinning Rusty Egan who had been challenging for the top 10 at the time. Hansen walked away. Both cars were done.
The final laps saw Cox using his referred to as unconventual cushion rim riding line to his first win of the season for the multi-Wilmot champion in several different types of cars. Genesee's Eric Wilke was second. Kansasville's Ryan Marshall came on strong to take third edging out fourth place runner Bristol's Chris Klemko. Jimmy Sivia of Winthrop Harbor, IL recovered from some early race miscues which kept putting him toward the back of the field to finish fifth.
"It was rough out there, but a fun hard win," said Salem's Ryan Johnson, following his win coming from ninth in the 26-car field in the B&L Office Furniture powered by Great American Tire & Auto Bandits 20-lap feature. "This is awesome to get a win against these tough drivers."
Burlington's Bradley Becker and Kenosha's Craig Kreuser went side be side several laps throughout the early going of the feature. Five laps in, the red flag flew when Ben Frank of Spring Grove, IL got upside down in turn one. Frank was not injured, but eliminated.

The beginning of the main saw a father-son family feud on Father's Day weekend much of the first half. Rob Olson and son Robby Olson, both of Lindenhurst, IL, battled side by side through some of the early going.
After a final caution with three laps to go, and the son Robby Olson leading with Kenosha's Blake Kreuser, who started tenth in the 17-car field, interrupting the family get-together. Pleasant Prairie's Josh Gehrig came out of no where commanding the high side down the backstretch to take the lead on the restart.

Skagit Speedway

By Erik List

Alger, WA – Hailing from Fresno, California, the driver of the 41 is Dominic Scelzi. Scelzi is no stranger to Dirt Cup at Skagit Speedway and is back this year for another crack at the $62,000.
Scelzi just made an appearance at Skagit Speedway on June 8, during a 360 Sprint Car show, which allowed him to learn and get some laps in before Dirt Cup.
“Well, one thing that I definitely felt like we could take away from was the way the racetrack heat raced. I thought it was going to get really slick and wide, and it did get slick, and the racetrack was in really good shape, but the very bottom of the racetrack and very top of the racetrack had a lot of grip in it,” Scelzi said. “That’s something I did not expect, and from years past, usually if it’s slick in the heat race, it just continues to widen out and continues to blow off, but it didn’t do that at all. So I felt like that was a really good thing for me to learn there compared to Thursday night of Dirt Cup.”
Last year, Scelzi started on the pole of the A-Main for the final night after being second highest in points and winning the Pole Shuffle over Justin Sanders. However, Scelzi could not hold on as he fell back and finished fourth.
“The Dirt Cup [has] just been a great race for me since we first started coming in 2021, Scelzi said. “We’ve really been strong, I want to say, pretty much every preliminary night and every finale. Last year we started on the pole, and they reworked the top of the racetrack, which I kind of didn’t really agree with, and it put us in a bad position there. Had to chase Justin [Sanders] down several times and kept getting yellows every time we ran him down. It kind of just didn’t fall our way last year. We had to really work hard to try and battle back [from] behind the eight ball in the feature.”
Scelzi enters Dirt Cup this year looking to win and take home the big prize. “We want to win the Dirt Cup, we’ve been close the past two years, hopefully we can kind of continue that speed and hopefully finish off a little bit better than we have the past two seasons.”
The Fresno native joined the NARC 410 Sprint Car Series for the Fastest Five Days in Motorsports and views it as a chance for him to prepare him for the Dirt Cup.
“For me, I’m a momentum racer,” Scelzi said. “I like to race as much as possible. And running five days in a row, I feel, is really good for our team, and really good for me to just kind of get into a rhythm and get into a good confident funk, and hopefully that rolls into Dirt Cup.”
You won't want to miss out on any of the action from the 52nd Annual Jim Raper Memorial Super Dirt Cup, and it all starts Thursday, June 20. If you can't make it out to the track, you can catch all the action live on FloRacing.

Tony Jackson and Scott Hess Racing Show Consistency and Progress with Career-Best Weekend in 410 Division
Abbottstown, PA – June 13, 2024

by Justin Snyder / Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Mgmt

With a frustration-filled month of May behind them, Tony Jackson and Scott Hess Racing scored a career-best weekend at a pair of Central Pennsylvania tracks over the weekend.

Jackson scored finishes of 13th at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa on Friday and 11th at Lincoln Speedway on Saturday. The top 15 finishes served as Jackson’s third and fourth of his rookie season in the 410 Sprint Car ranks and shows his progress made as he approaches the middle mark of 2024.

“Overall, it was a really good weekend and we’re starting to learn how to pass cars,” said Jackson. “We need to clean up a few things with qualifying and heat races, but we’ve made a lot of progress, and it was a good weekend.”

With a field of 22 Lawrence Chevrolet 410 Sprint Cars in attendance, Jackson kicked off the two-race weekend at Williams Grove on Friday. He finished sixth in a heat race to earn the 17th starting position in the A-main. He steadily moved forward throughout the feature and brought home a 13th-place finish at the checkered flag.

The duo then headed to Lincoln Speedway on Saturday to close out the weekend and amongst 22 competitors in attendance, timed in 18th quickest in time trials with a quickest lap of 14. 263 seconds. A seventh-place finish in a heat race locked Jackson into the night’s A-main event with the 21st starting position.

With $7,000 on the line for the Elijah Hawkins Memorial, Jackson showed incredible effort and determination as he moved forward ten positions to score an 11th-place finish. The result serves as Jackson’s career-best finish in the division.

“I was really happy with the run at the Grove, but to pass that many cars at Lincoln shows how good we really have been lately,” said Jackson. “We made some changes with the car to go back to making me comfortable and it seems to be working. It’s positive runs like that that will keep you coming back for more and hopefully, it’s a sign of things to come.”

The team will again tackle Williams Grove on Friday and Lincoln Speedway on Saturday for two races this weekend in 410 Sprint Car competition. While the goal will be to continue to learn and gain valuable seat time, Jackson and Hess are hoping for more positive momentum and results as they’re anxiously gearing up for their first crack at the always exciting Pennsylvania Speedweek in a few weeks.

Tentative plans have the team competing in six of the ten scheduled Speedweek events, with stops at Williams Grove (2), Lincoln (2), BAPS Motor Speedway (1), and Hagerstown (1) on the horizon.

“We want to stick to the plan of getting top 15 finishes and the plan directly ahead of us is to keep doing that,” said Jackson. “We’re knocking on the door of that first top ten. This can be a humbling sport, but it’s just hard to come from the back and if we can start better the results will speak for itself.”

“However, with Speedweek on the horizon and a bunch of races ahead of us, it’s important that I start breaking some of these habits and putting us in a better position in qualifying and heat races. We’re going to really focus on those things here the next few weeks and I’m looking forward to seeing where we stack up with the best our area has to offer come Speedweek,” he added.

WEEKEND RESULTS

June 8 – Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, PA – Heat race: 6 (3); Feature: 13 (17).

June 9 – Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, PA –Qualifying: 18; Heat race: 7 (6); Feature: 11 (21).

Kyle Reinhardt Scores Top-5 in First Trip to Huset’s Speedway
Eagle, NE – June 13, 2024

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Mgmt

Kyle Reinhardt was preparing to race his own No.91 at Lincoln Speedway’s Elijah Hawkins Memorial last weekend but his plans quickly changed when Bernie Stuebgen reached out and asked the Neptune City, NJ native to wheel his Indy Race Parts No.71 at a couple of Midwest shows.

Reinhardt filled the seat of Stuebgen’s car at a High Limit Racing event last year at Grandview Speedway. He recorded a top-ten finish that night. Opportunity knocked again last week to wheel the car at Knoxville Raceway Saturday night and again a few days later at the Eagle Raceway (NE) High Limit Racing event.

MIDWEST MISSION

Reinhardt’s first trip to Knoxville Raceway in 2024 Saturday night was also his first time in the seat of the No.71 this year. With only a few hot laps under his belt, he took to the half-mile for qualifying. His best lap ranked him 19th in the field of 30.

A 7th-place run in his heat put him 19th on the grid for the A-main. He netted a 17th-place finish in that 20-lap finale.

“We were behind the 8-ball tonight by about one track session. We were playing catch-up all night but got better by the end. I wish we had another go at it.”, Reinhardt said.

“Ripped the nose wing off when a few cars stacked up coming to the green in the feature. Bernie had the wrench spinning & made some big changes that got us better.”

A last-minute decision early Sunday made Reinhardt and the Indy Race Parts No.71 a surprise entry at Huset’s Speedway in Brandon, SD that night. The 3/8-mile banked oval was another first for Reinhardt but it didn’t show.

He posted the 3rd quickest lap in Group A qualifying, then converted a 3rd place start in his heat race to a runner-up finish, putting himself solidly inside the top ten to start the A-main.

From his starting spot inside row four, Reinhardt grabbed the 6th spot on the opening circuit and settled in there until near the midpoint of the 25-lap finale.

The car got even better in the late stages and Reinhardt didn’t waste it. He cracked the top five on lap fourteen, then claimed the 4th spot on lap twenty-three, which is where he took the checkers.

“We definitely rebounded tonight. That felt good.”, Reinhardt commented.

“I want to thank Bernie for the opportunity. He gave me a great car. I also want to thank Tod Quiring and Huset’s Speedway for having us. That is a bad-ass track and I’m extremely happy I had the opportunity to race here.”

The third leg of Reinhardt’s Midwest tour took him to Eagle Raceway in Nebraska on Tuesday night. A stout field of 43 teams was on hand for the $50,000-to-win High Limit Racing event.

Reinhardt clocked in 12th quickest in Group B qualifying. A 6th place run in his heat race and 5th place finish in the B-main were both one spot short of claiming a spot in the A-main.
UP NEXT

Reinhardt will take the upcoming weekend off to conserve his engines for the upcoming Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek.

He will return to action in his Capitol Custom Trailers & Coaches, Coors Banquet Beer/Ace Distributing of PA, E-Z-GO Golf Cars/Golf Cart Services, Henry’s Wrecker Service No.91 on June 22nd at Lincoln Speedway for their PA Speedweek tune-up event.

Hartlaub Nets Podium Finish, Gelling Quickly with Trone 39 Team

East Berlin, PA – June 14, 2024

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Mgmt

As the month of May came to a close, Kody Hartlaub embarked on an opportunity that arose after a hard crash left him short of equipment.

He would pilot the Trone No.39 for at least a few weeks to fill the void. After that, well, that would be a bridge to be crossed when the time came. QUICK RESULTS

Division: 410 Sprint Cars Track: Williams Grove Speedway City, State: Mechanicsburg, PA Stats: 25 cars, Qualifying 19th, Heat 6th (7), A-main 17th (16)

Division: 410 Sprint Cars Track: Lincoln Speedway City, State: Abbottstown, PA Stats: 22 cars, Qualifying 6th, Heat 2nd (1), A-main 10th (9)

DEBUT WEEKEND

The opening weekend for Hartlaub and the Trone team had a couple of glimpses of potential with a 7th-place qualifying effort and a 3rd-place heat race finish at Lincoln. With full fields both nights, the feature finishes, 17th and 15th, were respectable for a new venture.

For Hartlaub, the first two races, and maybe even the first few weeks, would not be about stats and finishes. It would be about developing a working chemistry and communication with his new team.

Transitions like this typically lead to a lot of adjustments. The driver sometimes adjusts his approach a little to accommodate a crew chief and more often a team makes equipment and setup changes to make their new driver comfortable.

Opening night at Williams Grove Speedway adjustments were ongoing throughout the night. The same was true the following night at Lincoln Speedway. It was all in the name of finding the right combination to be fast together.

SPEEDY PROGRESS

Heading into their second weekend together, the team, led by crew chief Kevin Frey, assembled a new car for Hartlaub. The effort clearly was worth it.

Hartlaub kicked off the night with an impressive Friday night drive from 5th to 2nd in his heat race to earn the 4th starting spot for the A-main.

In the 25-lap finale, Hartlaub was again impressive. He grabbed the 3rd spot on the opening lap and found his rhythm. On lap nine, the Littlestown (PA) native grabbed the runner-up spot and set his sights on leader Cameron Smith.

With a few circuits remaining, defending track champion Freddie Rahmer wrestled the runner-up spot away from Hartlaub who ultimately brought the Trone No.39 home with a podium finish in 3rd.

Hartlaub wrapped up his weekend at Lincoln Speedway the following night where the results continued to be encouraging for East Berlin (PA) resident in his first full 410 sprint car season. He timed 6th quickest in the field.

In heat race action, Hartlaub continued to impress by logging a 2nd place finish behind veteran Lucas Wolfe.

In the nightcap, Hartlaub started 9th and brought home a very respectable top-ten finish. UP NEXT

Discussions were held this week about the path forward. The result: Hartlaub will remain in the car through the end of the year and his partners will be right there with him.

“I want to add a huge thank you to my sponsors, J Fuels and Brewer first and foremost, for allowing me to do this and following me with this venture.”, Hartlaub said.

Hartlaub and the Trone 39 team will return to Williams Grove Speedway and Lincoln Speedway this Friday and Saturday.

BRODY ROA IS READY TO RETURN TO HIS BEST TRACK THIS SATURDAY

(Cypress, CA, June 12, 2024) This Saturday night, June 15th, many California race fans will see something they fretted would never happen: the grand reopening of the popular Santa Maria Speedway. Like race fans, the drivers are also elated about the rebirth of the Central Coast banked oval. None of them will be more excited than Brody Roa, who will be competing in the Ultimate Sprint Car Series presented by Inland Rigging.

Dating back to the start of the 2017 season, the pleasant Garden Grove, California racer has started eight races on the track that is located within San Luis Obispo County. Amazingly, Roa finished in the top three seven times! Among those were four wins, a second-place finish, and a third. The only time he did not finish in the top three at Santa Maria over that period of time came in a 2019 race when he finished 16th. His main event finishing average at the track is 3.50 since 2017. Take away the 16th-place finish, and the average would have been an astounding 1.71.

Between Covid in 2020 and the track being shuttered in 2021, Roa has only competed at Santa Maria two times since 2019. On July 3rd, 2021, he finished third in the main. The last time the Avanti Windows and Doors USAC/CRA Sprint Cars raced at the track was in August of 2022. To say the least, it was a memorable night. First of all, it was the first night the track had been open since shutting down a year earlier. It was also the final event at the track before this coming weekend’s race. A sellout crowd was on hand, and they witnessed Roa pull off a rare USAC/CRA feat. He steered Jayson May’s 360-powered car to win the main event against a full field of 410s. Unfortunately, the track that opened in 1964, was shuttered again after that. That all changes this Saturday.

Last week, when the USAC/CRA Series was at Kevin Harvick’s Kern Raceway for the Golden Empire Clash, Roa set the fifth-fastest time in qualifying. That placed him on the outside of the second row for his 10-lap heat. The 2023 series champion stayed second for the race's first seven laps. Entering turn three on the eighth circuit, he used a textbook slider that propelled him into the lead and onto the victory. Combined with his race win in the USCS event on the 1/3 mile oval at the start of May, Roa has won heat races each time he has been at the track this year.

Things were looking like Roa was going to have a great night. After winning the heat, he started inside row two for the 30-lap main. Early on, he was running third. However, engine problems started to slow the gorgeous #8M. On lap 18, Roa decided to call it a night. Afterward, he stated, “I didn’t want to jeopardize hurting anyone.”

To see if Roa can make it three wins in four USCS starts, spectator gates will open at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday at Santa Maria. Qualifying will begin at 5:00, and the first race will be at 6:00. Adult tickets are $25.00. Seniors and military get in for $23.00. For kids 6-12, it is only $5.00, and children 5 and under are free. The track is located at 1900 Hutton Road in Nipomo, California.

The May Motorsports entry is sponsored by Winfield’s Racing Engines, RDM Mechanics, Cooper’s Propane, TJM Distribution, TJM Distribution, Ten West Towing, Arctic Sea Mining, Wesco International, Elite Signs and Fastenal.

Roa would like to thank his own sponsors, “Biker” Bruce Fischer, ALR Virtual Services, Burris Racing, Caltrol, Competition Suspension, Simpson Race Gear, Rod End Supply, Driven Racing Oil, Baldwin Filters, and NGK Spark Plugs. If you would like to be a marketing partner in 2024, contact Roa using the information at the top of this release.

MUST SEE RACING ANNOUNCES DETAILS OF ‘FAST CASH” CHALLENGE

June 11, 2024 - Holly, Michigan – Must See Racing Sprint Series Presented by Perfit-Parts today announced details of the recently announced “Fast Cash” Challenge program that was announced a few days ago.

To give teams extra race day incentives, and continue to create great racing, the program was instituted and will be in effect at the series next event June 22 at Owosso Speedway. The “Fash Cash” Challenge will be used for the MSR National Series the remainder of the year.

After qualifications are complete the Fast Qualifier will be asked to accept the challenge. If he says yes, he will immediately earn a $500 bonus. If he sets a new track record, he will pick up an additional $100.

The Fast Qualifier will also be able to earn additional bonuses throughout the night including a $175 bonus if he wins his heat race, $75 for runner-up, or $50 for finishing third. Since he accepted the challenge the invert for the feature event will already be pre-determined with the highest a 6 and the lowest being a straight-up start. If he wins the feature event for the sixth position he will receive a $400 bonus. If he wins from the fourth starting position, he will earn a $200 bonus. If he wins from the pole, he will still earn a $100 bonus.

If the Fast Qualifier refuses the “Fast Cash” Challenge, he will receive no bonuses and could face an invert as high as a ten.

To receive all the available bonuses, a driver must prove to be as good of a qualifier as he is a racer. If a driver could be lucky enough to claim all the available bonuses offered for the night, he could earn as much as $1,175 in addition to his feature finish prize money.

It’s new, it’s different, and hopefully it will prove to be entertaining.

Motor issues stall Arenz at Angell Park Speedway

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) June 12, 2024 – It was night Travis Arenz and the members of the Travis Arenz Motorsports team would like to toss into File 13, as mechanical maladies brought their participation in a Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series event to a premature end Sunday, June 9 at Angell Park Speedway in Angell Park, Wis.

Arenz opened the annual Norm Nelson Classic on a high note by qualifying fifth in the 30-car field with a lap of 12.598 seconds. The 2021 and 2022 Midwest Sprint Car Association and Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Car champion then rolled off third in the second eight-lap IRA heat race.

Arenz struggled throughout the race as Jordan Goldesberry, Joel Meyers Jr. and Jake Neuman moved past the Sheboygan Falls, Wis. driver. However, Arenz still managed to hold on to finish sixth and earn a spot in both the IRA dash and A-main lineups.

Arenz’s 25T machine did not return to the track for the remainder of the racing program as a motor issue forced the team to scratch from the dash and A-main.

“Near the end of the heat race, the motor dropped a valve and hurt the motor,” Arenz said. “Unfortunately, our other two motors are not finished yet. We are not sure about our status for the rest of the season as of now.

“The good news is I got my MSD box back from the IRA, after it got sent out to be checked for traction control,” he said. “Everything was legal.”

The Travis Arenz Motorsports team was scheduled to compete in the fourth annual Road America Challenge IRA event at The Plymouth Dirt Track on Saturday, June 8. However, the event fell victim to rain.

Due to the team’s current motor issues, the upcoming schedule for the Travis Arenz Motorsports team is undetermined.

All 2024 Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series events will be streamed live on FloRacing.

The 2024 Travis Arenz Motorsports sponsorship partners include Professional Plating Inc., Service One Transportation Inc., Don and Lynn Kiel, Oostburg Concrete, Lakeshore Family Funeral Homes, Schoen’s Wildlife Removal, Premier Insurance Solutions-Craig Ladwig, Carbliss Hand Crafted Cocktails, Pallet Works, Lake Auto Glass and Service, Roth’s Auto Restoration, Hair Fellers Barbershop, Fastenal of Plymouth, Jensen’s Sales and Service, Amy Bruechert Reality, Duehring's Tax Service, Everhope Show Cattle, Sonntag Plumbing Inc., Kriete Truck Center and Arenz Auto Detailing.

The 2024 Travis Arenz Motorsports team consists of pit crew members Jerrod Gamb, Cameron Fritz, Bobby Bonelli, Keith Fellner and Emily Stadler.

Hartmann flashes speed, pushes ahead in IRA action at Angell Park Speedway

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) June 12, 2024 – A strong introduction and a solid conclusion could best describe Austin Hartmann and the 87A Hartmann Racing team’s performance in the seventh Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series event of the 2024 campaign with Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wis. serving as the competitive stage Sunday, June 9.

The fifth-year Sprint Car competitor opened the annual Norm Nelson Classic racing program by qualifying third in the 30-car field after ripping off a rapid lap of 12.569 seconds around the historic third-mile clay oval.

After lining up fourth in the third eight-lap IRA heat race, Hartmann found the going difficult on the dry slick track surface as he slipped back three spots to finish in seventh place at the checkered flag and missed transferring to the A-main by a single position.

The 2020 Midwest Sprint Car Association and Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Car Rookie of the Year Award recipient then started on the pole of the 10-lap IRA B-main and pulled away to post the victory by a full straightaway over Shelby Bosie.

After a complete reworking of the track surface, Hartmann lined up 18th in the 30-lap IRA A-main before falling back to 20th in the early going. Following an uneventful first half of the race, the Plymouth, Wis. native hit his stride in the second 15 laps of the event as he utilized the low groove to power past Danny Schlafer and Lance Fassbender on lap 16.

Two laps later, Hartmann ducked under Shelby Bosie and Van Gurley Jr. before wheeling past Will Gerrits on lap 22 to claim the 14th position in the running order. Hartmann then moved in to apply heavy pressure to Jett Mann in the closing stages of the race before settling for a 14th-place showing in the caution-free race, which was won by Scotty Thiel.

It was Hartmann’s fifth top-15 A-main showing in seven 2024 IRA events.

“We had a lot of ups and downs during the night,” Hartmann said. “The pill draw for qualifying was key for the track conditions. The heat race didn’t go in our favor. We regrouped and got our balance back in the car and salvaged a decent finish on the night. We got good notes for another night coming up at Wilmot this Saturday. We’ll keep digging!”

The 87A Hartmann Racing team was scheduled to compete in the fourth annual Road America Challenge IRA event at The Plymouth Dirt Track on Saturday, June 8. However, the event fell victim to rain.

Hartmann is slated to compete this Saturday, June 15 with the IRA Sprint Car Series at Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wis. The Wisconsin wingLESS Sprint Cars, Street Stocks and Bandits are also on the card.

Spectator gates open at 4 p.m. with hot laps at 5:45 p.m. and racing set to start at 6:45 p.m.

The sponsorship partners for the 2024 87A Hartmann Racing team include Kristine Hartmann of Pleasant View Realty, Shufflebotham Tree Service, Competition Specialists, Feldmann Sales & Service, Holler n Hills, Quasius Construction Inc., TheD8Dispensary, AF Inc., Metalcraft, Rich’s Truck and Auto Repair, Fastenal of Plymouth, Waldo Oil, RC Custom Design, Hepfner Racing Products, Maxim Chassis, Berryman Racing Shocks and My Race Pass.

Alger, WA—The 360 Sprint Cars are back this Saturday, June 15, for another night of racing. Joining them will be the Sportsman Sprint Cars and the Skagit Aggregates IMCA Modifieds. It was the Trey Starks show last Saturday, June 8, in the 360 Sprint Car A-Main and the Sportsman Sprint Car A-Main. Starks has now won both 360 races at Skagit Speedway and is a perfect one for one this year in Sportsman Sprint Car. This will only be the third appearance for the 360 Division this year at Skagit Speedway. Last weekend, during the 360 A-Main, Starks started third and had to move past Colton Heath and Willie Croft before he got to the lead. However, once he did, Starks set a torrid pace through the field, facing little challenge for the remainder of the race. He continues to lead the points battle with 248 total points over Cam Smith (208 points) and Robbie Price (206 points). Through four races now, there are four different winners in the Sportsman Sprint Car Division, with Starks being the most recent one. However, the Puyallup, WA native had to battle with a former winner, Jesson Jacobson for the win. Jacobson led the opening 10 laps while Starks had to work from third place but quickly moved into second on the opening lap. Starks made his move around Jacobson on lap 11 and checked out from there. Kai Dixon leads the championship points battle with 422 points over Alden Ostrom (408 points) and Jayden Whitney (399 points). The Skagit Aggregates IMCA Modifieds make their fourth appearance at Skagit Speedway this year after a weekend off. Tyson Blood picked up the first two wins, and James Bundy has won most recently. Bundy led all 25 laps last time out during College and Kids night on June 1, facing a little challenge. Blood is the only one to have finished in the top five (two wins and a second place) in all three races so far. Jeff Westergard has finished in the top ten for all three races with two top fives as well. Blood leads the points with 119 over Westergard (107 points) and Lee Swift (103 points).

Double Pro Stock Features on Father’s Day at Tri City Raceway Park

(Franklin, PA June 12, 2024): When rains cut short a recent program at Tri City Raceway Park, new owners Josh and Kyrsten Shiffer made plans to make up for the lost features. The first double feature comes up this Sunday, June 16. The Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stocks will do double duty on Father’s Day!

“It is a great way to celebrate Father’s Day,” Josh Shiffer said. "Bring Dad to the track and enjoy a fun night at the races," he added.

The make up race is scheduled to hit the track at 5:45. The field for that event has been set, and no new cars will be added. Racers who cannot return will be paid tow money. After the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply contest is concluded, a full Sunday Thunder program will be staged.

With three races in the books, Bob Felmlee still leads A.J. Flick in the championship standings in the Krill Recycling 410 Sprint Car ranks. Flick has two wins to Felmlee’s one, but Flick did not get full points for his first triumph of the season because it was a FAST on Dirt sanctioned event. Hence, the eight point differential.

The next four in the rankings are close. Jeremy Weaver is coming off of a strong second place finish, while Gale Ruth, Jr. is hoping that his luck improves this week. He was sidelined early by a mechanical problem in the most recent show. Michael Bauer and Andy Cavanaugh are within striking distance.

Rounding out the top ten are Bodey McClintock, Cameron Nastasi, John Jerich, and Logan McCandless.

Chad Reitz has a substantial lead over Steve Slater in the points for the 21st Century Energy Group 358 Modifieds. Reitz has two wins and a second to his credit. Slater started the season strong, with a pair of seconds, but a medical problem required him to bring in Eric Gabany to take over the driving chores for the present time. Because points are awarded to the car, not the driver, Gabany kept Slater in second place. However, teenager Hayden Holden is just one point back!

Last week’s winner, Erick Rudolph, made the trek from the Empire State because he has not been able to log as many races this season due to the wet weather in his home state. His plans for this weekend are unsettled, but you know that he will be in the hunt whenever he is entered.

Tim Bish currently leads the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Pro Stock standings, but this week’s double features could shake things up. Mike Miller, Pat Fielding, Rod Laskey, and Josh Seippel are close beyond. There is a slight drop off to the next cluster of racers, consisting of Charlie McMillen, Jason Kimmy, Hunter Exley, Russ Coyne, and Aaron Smith. Chris Schneider, the opening night winner, is lurking just outside the top ten.

The RUSH Sprint Cars, newly added to the Sunday Thunder program, have completed only one race, so the feature winner, young Blaze Myers, finds himself at the head of the list. John Mollick, Joe Buccola, Arnie Kent, and Brent Rhebergen round out the top five in the quest for the 4 Your Car Connection title.

Tim Bish is the leader in the Marsh Heating & Cooling Heat Race Challenge. He has four checkers to his credit. A.J. Fick and Steve Slater are tied with two. All other contestants only have single wins.

Although the racing will start a bit earlier than usual this week, the rest of the schedule remains intact. Pit gates will open at 2 p.m., and spectator gates will open two hours later. Racing starts at 5:45.

There will be no increase in ticket prices for the extra race. Adults will be admitted for $15, and seniors (ages 62 and up), students (ages 11 to 16), and military will be admitted for $13, all with proper identification.Children (ages 10 and under) will be admitted for free. Pit passes will be $35, with the exception of infants (ages 2 and under) will be admitted to the pits for $15.

If you cannot make it to the track this weekend, June 23 and 30 will be Sunday Thunder events also.

The divisional sponsors of Tri City Raceway Park for 2024 are: Krill Recycling, LLC (410 Sprint Cars), 21st Century Energy Group (358 Modifieds), Hovis Auto & Truck Supply (Pro Stocks), and 4 Your Car Connection (RUSH Sprint Cars).

All competitors at Tri City Raceway Park will be eligible for the Marsh Heating & Cooling Heat Race Challenge. The driver that wins the most heat races over the course of the season, regardless of the class, will receive a special award.

Other marketing partners of Tri City Raceway Park for 2024 include: Erie Beer, Wab-Tec (manufacturer of locomotive engines), Schaeffer Lubricants, Keystone Transit (school buses), Blue Ox Timbers (buyers of timberland timber land management), Constable Refuse (residential and commercial garbage collectors), First Rate Realty (real estate sales), Landscape Connection (portable toilets and landscape supplies), KEI-Klapec Express Inc.

CRSA HEADS SOUTH TO PENN CAN

Press Release By: Marty Czekala - June 12, 2024

The A-Verdi Storage Containers CRSA Sprints, powered by SuperGen Products, will host their first race of June Friday at Penn Can Speedway in round three of the Joe’s Garage Southern Tier Series.

It is the 34th time the track in Susquehanna, PA, has hosted "The Future Stars of Sprint Cars." Last year, Penn Can hosted a pair of CRSA races, won by first-time winner Tim Iulg and Kyle Pierce.

Here’s a look at the top stories entering the weekend.

Tune In: Action can be seen live on Dirt Track Digest TV and Race Report TV with Marty Czekala on the call. Expand your race night experience at the track or online through the MyRacePass app or at www.myracepass.com for $5.99 a month, featuring live timing, entry list, fantasy and results.

Last Race: A return to the Afton Fairgrounds Speedway May 31 for CRSA to continue the Joe's Garage Southern Tier Series. With nine to go, Kyle Pierce took advantage of Jeff Trombley’s blown motor to take the lead and not back for his first win of the season, the fifth of his career.

This was a race in which the one who got away came back to him. Last time at Afton, Pierce was leading when he ran out of fuel in the final laps, giving the win to Dalton Herrick.

"Anytime we can win, or even in the top 10, that's a great day for us,” said Pierce post-race. “To finally get a win is a great way to start the summer months.”

Mike Kiser finished second, while Dalton Herrick was third.

We know Drama: In the last three races of action, exciting moments have unfolded amongst the leaders in the second half of the race. Matt Rotz had to hold off a hard-charging Bobby Parrow in the final laps for his first career sprint car win at Land of Legends. Back at Weedsport, Bobby Parrow broke a rear end to give Jordan Hutton the win. Now, Friday at Afton, it was Trombley’s engine giving away to give Kyle Pierce his first win.

Bad Luck June: CRSA has yet to complete a single race in the sixth month of the 2024 calendar. Both events scheduled June 1 at Fonda Speedway and June 7 at Utica-Rome Speedway were postponed, leaving only two races on the calendar for June. This is the second straight year “The Future Stars of Sprint Cars” would host up to two races, with Fonda and Penn Can hosting events last year.

A Contested Battle: After two rounds of the Joe’s Garage Southern Tier Series, the top four are separated by six points early. Billy VanInwegen and Dalton Herrick are the top two in points, with Herrick four points behind. Thunder Mountain winner Jordan Hutton is five behind, while Afton winner Kyle Pierce is six back.

The Favorites: Dalton Herrick leads all active drivers in Penn Can top fives with eight, including a win in 2022. Kyle Pierce is tied for wins in Susquehanna since 2014 with two alongside Josh Flint and Eddie Strada. He also has four top fives alongside Jeff Trombley, Billy VanInwegen and Jordan Hutton. The former two have won here in the past. Of course, sometimes a driver may surprise you, just as Iulg did last year.

By the Numbers: At Penn Can, the average car count since 2014 is over 19. 72 drivers have finished in the top five all-time and 25 drivers have recorded a checkered flag. Jeff VanSteenburg and Joe Kata lead the way in wins with three.

From the Frontman: "It’s our first trip of the year down South and we always enjoy heading to Penn Can. Keith Beach and his team do a great job preparing and promoting the track. It’s always a regular on the CRSA calendar and we look forward to putting on a great show Friday night!” ~ Mike Emhof

From the Track Promoter: “The team here is excited to have the CRSA Sprints back for their first of two showings of the 2024 season. Mike and his team always bring a great show and we know our fans love it.” ~ Keith Beach

Up Next: CRSA kicks off the Dandy Triple Play next Friday at Outlaw Speedway in Dundee.

Antioch Speedway caps busy stretch for SCCT this Saturday

By Gary Thomas

Antioch, CA…The Contra Costa County Fairgrounds based Antioch Speedway will be the destination for the Elk Grove Ford Sprint Car Challenge Tour this Saturday night.

The June 15th event at the “Action Track by the Delta” marks the sixth race of the season for the Sprint Car Challenge Tour and its only Antioch appearance in 2024. It’s also the final outing for the SCCT 360s prior to getting ready for Western Speedweek in mid-July.

“We look forward to bringing the Sprint Car Challenge Tour back to Antioch Speedway on Saturday,” commented SCCT President Scott Russell. “They’ve done a fantastic job giving the place a total facelift in recent years and it should be a great night of racing this weekend.”

So far this season it has been all about Justin Sanders and car owner Dale Miller, who have captured all five races up to this point. With commitments up North however, Sanders will not be in action, which opens the door for a new winner on Saturday.

El Cajon youngster Braden Chiaramonte will be the de facto point leader heading into Antioch Speedway. The driver of the Tiner-Hirst Ent. No. 94TH has put together some impressive moments this year and now looks to add a SCCT victory to his resume.

Reigning Placerville Speedway champion Michael Faccinto is another top-five point driver that will look for a big win at Antioch Speedway on Saturday. The Hanford driver sits just four markers behind Chiaramonte in the SCCT standings.

Veterans Andy Forsberg of Auburn and Sean Becker from Roseville are sure to be contenders at Antioch Speedway as well. Both competitors finished among the top-five last Saturday in Petaluma and now have their eyes on the trophy this weekend.

Additional possibilities on Saturday include Livermore’s Travis Labat, Clayton’s Joey Ancona, Dunnigan’s Luke Hayes, Sacramento’s Austin Wood, Cotati’s Jake Haulot and more.

All cars that have competed at each SCCT event are also eligible for the $500 Shop Kyle Larson Bonus if they win at Antioch on Saturday. If they can do so, it will make for a $3,000 total payday. Standard nightly payouts with the tour continue to be $2,500-to-win and $400-to-start the 24-car main event.

Former SCCT winners at Antioch Speedway include Visalia’s Cory Eliason, Chico’s Jonathan Allard and most recently Fremont’s Shane Golobic.

Tickets and Details:

Grandstand seating is general admission this Saturday June 15th at Antioch Speedway. 𝗧𝗶𝗰𝗸𝗲𝘁𝘀 can be purchased at the gate.

The pit gate will open at 2pm, with the front gate opening at 4pm. The pit meeting will be held at 4:30pm with cars on track at 5. Hot laps, Sierra Foothills Wine Services qualifying and racing will follow.

The event will follow the standard SCCT muffler rule, which is either the Large Flowmaster or Large Spintech Muffler as described in the rulebook.
