Jordon Mallett claims his 2nd USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour presented by K&N Filters sprint car National Championship in 2018

Atlanta, GA – November 12, 2018 – Jordon Mallett from Greenbrier, Arkansas will wear the crown as the United Sprint Car Series presented by K&N Filters Outlaw Thunder Tour National Champion during the series’ 22nd and 2018 racing season. The young sprint car driver made nine visits to the www.rockauto.com USCS victory lane as the series feature winner.

Mallett had 29 top-five finishes and a total of 42 top-ten finishes while he used a record of perfect attendance during the forty-five events to accumulate the most Championship points. He emerged as the Champion of the series National Tour by besting 2018 National Championship runner-up and 11-time USCS National Champion Terry Gray from Bartlett, Tennessee in a repeat of the 2017 season title chase after the two drivers battled all season from February 9th until November 10th for the 22nd USCS National Championship crown.

Mallett clinched the title this past weekend during the USCS the North vs. South Sunshine State Sprint Car Shootout at Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, Florida where he finished 14th in the 25-lap Friday night preliminary main event after having an engine failure in the main event. That was his only DNF of the season. Mallett’s team then changed engines and rallied back in Saturday night’s Season Finale for a runner-up spot in the Finale.

Mallett, is only one of four drivers to ever wear the USCS National crown for two season or more. The 25-year old Arkansan will collect top honors in all three of the USCS regional series sprint car divisions including the USCS Deep South, USCS Mid-South and the USCS Southern Thunder regional series as well. His Championship in the USCS Mid-South regional series was accomplished on the final night of the Mid-South regional series at Riverside Speedway as he eclipsed two-time (201 and 2016) National Champion Morgan Turpen’s lead in the division to capture that title by a scant one point.

USCS Founder and President, Pete Walton said ‘We are very proud to announce Jordon Mallett as our 2018 United Sprint Car Series presented by K&N Filters National Champion. Jordon and his team including his wife Madison and his parents Steve and Jonie Mallett have worked hard and are very professional in their approach to their goals and have been very successful as a team this season. Jordon has the work ethic that always creates Champions and he is an example of what hard work and dedication can accomplish. He and his team of Family members are a welcome example to the people thy meet and always represent our series in a way that always makes us proud, Congratulations Jordon!

With the USCS Season Finale scheduled next weekend in Florida at Bubba Raceway Park we would have to go deep into November and with cooler temperatures and what seems to be a very wet Fall 2018, we are forced to throw in the towel and declare Mother Nature the winner this time. We were very excited about the field of 130 cars assembled in the five featured divisions and the great racing on Friday, October 12th in the preliminary events. We would have loved to have seen the Finals ourselves. It was also one of the strongest fields assembled in the USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour presented by K&N Filters winged sprint cars for the annual USCS Flip Flop twin-feature event.

We would like to thank the Riverside staff and owners for working hard not only this but, every time, to host this event. Additionally we would like to most of all thank the racers in every division and the race fans who have turned out to make this an exciting headliner season finale event at Riverside Int. Speedway each Fall.

The USCS will start issuing refunds on Monday, November 5, 2018 for two-day Grandstand/General Admission ticket holders for their unused 2nd Day admission originally issued for the Saturday, October 13, 2018 Rainout. Those that purchased with a credit card in advance can call the USCS office at 770-870-8439 after 9am EST (or 8am CST) on Monday, November 5, 2018 or later for a refund. For those who purchased at the track (and hopefully retained your ticket stub for Saturday night’s event), please, call and we will instruct you on what to do.

For the racers in the four divisions that did not run a main event yet. A refund will be issued for the Entry Fees in the USCS Sprint Car, All Star Late Model, MSCA 305 Sprint Car and Mid-South Street Stock divisions.

$60,000 USCS Fall Nationals and Flip Flop 54 Sprint Car Shootout at Riverside Speedway this Saturday (October 27th)

Atlanta, GA – October 24, 2018 – At least $8.000 is up for grabs when the United Sprint Car Series presented by K&N Filters invades the historic Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Arkansas on Saturday, October 27th for the RE-SCHEDULED 10th annual $60,000 Fall Nationals USCS and “Flip Flop 50” Sprint Car Shootout when FireAde presents the USCS 2018. The initially scheduled two-day racing event was rained out after the preliminaries were complete on Friday, October 12th. On the following day rains came at 4:30 pm and washed out the finale of the huge event with 130 race cars set to compete in the $60,000 finale.

The USCS Fall Nationals serves as it has for the past nine seasons, as the 2018 season finale for Riverside International Speedway. The unique fan favorite “Flip Flop 50” racing event that headlines the event has actually been renamed the “Flip Flop 54” for this season’s event as a tribute to Memphis native and sprint car driving great, 49-year-old Greg Hodnett who lost his life on September 20th in a sprint car racing accident in Pennsylvania.

The format for the “USCS Flip Flop 54” is a United Sprint Car Series original that is sometimes imitated, but, never duplicated. The unique format usually features twin 25-lap main events with the first starting straight-up and the second starting fully inverted from the finish of the first. This year’s event will feature twin 27-lap main events in honor of Greg Hodnett whose car number in recent times was the number 27.

Each of the 27-lap sprint car main events on Saturday night will pay the winner $2700 to win. The first USCS Sprint Car main event will be started straight up from the positions that drivers earned in the qualifying heats and the K&N Filters Pole Scramble on Friday night. The winner of the first 27-lap main event will be inverted to the final starting position in the second 27-lap A-Main event, that will start fully inverted from the finish of the first main event. Should the winner of the first main event win the second main event from last position they will receive a $2700 Bonus for the accomplishment.

The USCS presented by K&N Filters winged sprint car racing format on Friday, October 12th featured a racing program that included the sprint car qualifying heat races for Saturday night’s first USCS Flip Flop 54 main event. The top eight qualified drivers via passing points then competed in the K&N Filters Pole Scramble 15-lap semi main event. The K&N Filters Pole Scramble finishing order determine the line-up for the front four rows of the first of Saturday’s USCS “Flip Flop 54” 27-lap main events. Howard Moore fom Memphis, Tennessee who won the USCS Sprint Speedweek Finale Riverside on June 2nd topped the qualifying rounds by winning the K&N Filters Pole Scramble and will start in the K&N Filters Pole Position on Saturday night for the first of the twin main events. Dfending USCS National Champion, Jordon Mallett from Greenbrier, Arkansas will start to his right in the front row.

On Saturday evening at 6:00 pm the USCS winged sprint cars will contest a series of B-Main/Last Chance races that determine the final line-ups for the first of the two 27-lap main events. The first main event will start the field straight-up from their final qualifying order and pays $2700 to win. The second 27-lap main event will start with the field inverted from the finish of the first main event. The winner of the first race will start last position. That race will also pay $2700 to win. A bonus of $2700 will be paid to any driver who can win both races after winning the first sprint car main event and starting last in the second event.

On Saturday evening at 6:00 pm the USCS winged sprint cars will contest a series of B-Main/Last Chance races that determine the final line-ups for the first of the two 27-lap main events.

The second 27-lap main event will start with the field inverted from the finish of the first main event. The winner of the first race will start last position. That race will also pay $2700 to win.

Terry Gray races to 91st USCS win during Senoia Summer Nationals IX at Senoia Raceway on Saturday (9/8/18).

Senoia, GA – September 8, 2018 – The Bartlett Bullett, Terry Gray from Bartlett, Tennessee raced past early race-leader and defending USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour presented by K&N Filters National Champion Jordon Mallett from Greenbrier, Arkansas on lap twenty-four of the 30-lap USCS Senoia Summer Nationals IX presented by FireAde main event at Senoia Raceway on Saturday night to grab the lead for the first time in the contest, He then took the high-side route to the www.RockAuto.com USCS Victory Lane over the final six laps to celebrate his second USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour win of the 2018 season and his 91st career win with the series. He has been the National Champion of the series eleven times as a driver and twice as Morgan Turpen’s car-owner. September 8, 2018.

Mallett who started from the K&N Filters Pole Position land has nine USCS wins this season, led the first twenty-three circuits around the smooth, but slick 3’8-mile Gumbo clay oval with Gray who started outside the front row next to him, trailing in the runner-up spot for the first two laps. On lap three, The Alabama Outlaw, young gun Kyle Amerson from Matthews, Alabama raced past the veteran Gray into the runner-up spot. Amerson held on to the runner-up spot until lap fifteen when Gray got past Amerson to regain the spot.

The 2000 USCS Rookie of the Year and former Southern Outlaw Sprint Series Champion, Michael Miller from Ocean Springs, Mississippi driving the Terry Witherspoon owned #99 came up to challenge and pass Amerson for the third position on lap seventeen. Miller then started to challenge Gray for the second position. On lap twenty-one Miller drove past Gray with a big slide job entering turn three. The move worked until the two exited turn four and Gray moved high where Miller was running to block Miller from passing him back as Gray won the race off the turn when Miller went high near the wall from his slide-job momentum.

The move allowed Gray to find the rubber in the track surface three-fourths of the way up in the high groove. Three laps later, Gray reeled Mallett in and drove past on the high-side and raced away toward victory. A caution on lap 26 brought Mallett back to the veteran’s back bumper for a four-lap dash to the checkers but, Gray had the momentum and crossed the line for his 91st victory. The win put him just ten wins from the top of the list behind retired driver, Kenny Adams from Malabar, Florida with one hundred wins in the series.

Michael Miller finished in the K&N Filters Podium Award third place after starting fifth. Kyle Amerson followed Miller to the finish line in fourth place after running as high as second position. The 2016 USCS Senoia Summer Nationals Champion and two-time USCS National Champion, Morgan Turpen from Cordova, Tennessee was involved in a late-race tangle with a lapped car and was spun out in the incident. She then went ot the rear of the field to re-start/ then drove the Terry Gray Racing #10m back to fifth place at the finish.

Tim Perry from Mooresville, North Carolina led the next group to the finish line in sixth place.

Hahn and Hagar put on quite a show with their battle for the runner-up spot while Stewart raced away each time enjoying the clean air as the race-leader, but, no one really had anything for him.

Hahn prevailed in the battle for second place and Hagar brought his #9Jr. mount across the line six feet back in the K&N Filters Podium Award third place. The previous night’s winner at Hattiesburg Speedway, Wayne Johnson from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma followed in fourth place and Dale Howard from Byhalia, Mississippi collected his second top five of the weeknd by rounding out the top five on Saturday night.

The 2-time USCS National Champion, Morgan Turpen from Cordova, Tennessee finished in seventh place followed by Howard Moore from Memphis, Tennessee in eighth place. Defending United Sprint Car Series National Champion, Jordon Mallett from Greenbrier, Arkansas finished in ninth place. Dewayne White from Byhalia, Mississippi rounded out the top ten finishers. Heat race victories went to Derek Hagar in the Engler Machine and Tool First Heat and to eventual feature winner, Tony Stewart in the Brown and Miller Racing Solutions Second Heat. The Butlerbuilt Third Heat checkers was claimed by Harli White from Tulsa, Oklahoma. Morgan Turpen rallied from a disappointing heat race finish to win the The FireAde 2000 B-Main. The K&N Filters Pole Award and pole position was garnered by high-points earner, Tony Stewart after first heat winner, Derek Hagar pulled a zero. Ronny Howard from Nesbit, Mississippi collected the Wilwood Disc Brakes Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars in the main event when he cruised from 21st to 12th place.

Double, Double Vision; Mark Smith swept USCS Winter Heat opening weekend at Bubba Raceway Park on Friday and Saturday (2/9-2/10)

Ocala, Florida - February 12, 2018 – The 70’s rock band, Foreigner must have known Mark Smith was coming to race at Bubba Raceway Park this past weekend, cause they made a song, just for the occasion way back in 1978, “Double Vision” . That was what Fans and the other race teams got last weekend at BRP was a double vision of Mark Smith in victory lane in the USCS Winter Heat Rounds One and Two. The Sunbury, Pennsylvania driver took up where he left off in United Sprint Car Series competition last November by winning rounds One and Two of the USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour presented by K&N Filters Winter Heat Series main events over this past weekend at Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, Florida. By doing so, Smith ran his win streak to three-in-a-row in USCS competition. All three wins have come at Bubba Raceway Park, including the USCS Florida State Championship Race final last November 11th. Smith bested a talented field of 35 drivers from 15 states and Canada and parked his own Mach 1 number 1m sprint car in the www.RockAuto.com USCS Victory Lane on both Friday and Saturday nights to kick his 2018 season off in a successful manner.

After winning Friday night’s 25-lap final, Smith raced from the K&N Filters Pole Position into victory lane while leading the entire 30-laps in the Saturday night weekend sprint car finale. Washington state driver Seth Bergman jumped from his fifth starting position into the runner-up spot on lap one and took up the chase after the fleeting Smith. Danny Martin, Jr. from Sarasota, Florida lost a spot to Jacksonville, Floridian Terry Witherspoon, but recovered to the third position on lap two. Witherspoon held down the fourth spot followed by New York racer, Larry Wight in fifth.

That running order held until in the top five until lap thirteen when A.J. Maddox from Tampa, Florida moved in to the order, while the balance of the top ten saw a lot of shuffle going on. Maddox moved into the top three on lap eighteen.

Over the last dozen laps the order behind Smith and Bergman changed several times with Coleman Gulick from Binghamton, New York racing from fourteenth place into the top five. He then advanced into third place after a lap nineteen restart.
By lap twenty-three, Carson Short, who finished in the runner-up spot behind Smith on Friday night, had charged from a sixteenth starting position into the lead group.

On lap twenty-nine the caution came out for a stopped car exiting turn two to create a two-lap green-white checker dash to the finish. This pulled Seth Bergman, Coleman Gulick, Carson Short and A.J. Maddox right up to the back bumper of the the leader, Mark Smith.

When the green flew again Smith held off Bergman and company to cross the line ahead of Bergman, Gulick, short and A.J. Maddox in that order. The second group had the evening’s Hoosier Speed Dash winner, fifteen-year-old Tyler Clem from St. Petersburg, Florida in sixth followed by Columbus, Indiana/s Tony Stewart in seventh position. Danny Martin, Jr. crossed in eighth place followed by Larry Wight in ninth place. Defending USCS National Champion, Jordon Mallett from Greenbrier, Arkansas rounded out the top ten finishers in a talent-laden field.

Heat race victories on Saturday night went to Joe Swanson from Elma Green, Indiana in the Engler Machine and Tool First Heat and Danny Martin, Jr. in the Brown and Miller Racing Solutions Second Heat. The Butlerbuilt third heat checkers was claimed by Tony Agin from Ft. Myers, Florida. The Schoenfeld Headers fourth heat was won by Terry Witherspoon.

The 2018 USCS vs. URC North vs. South Shootout will renew rivalry between two of the Nation’s top winged sprint car series

Atlanta, GA - January 1, 2018 - The United Sprint Car Series presented by K&N Filters (www.uscsracing.com) and the New Jersey based Capital Renegade United Racing Club (www.urcsprintcarseries.com) winged sprint car series are set to renew a rivalry that started with two races in the last decade in South Carolina. The two series that are among the oldest and most respected 360 cubic inch sprint car series in North America will contest four nights of co-sanctioned winged sprint car action during the 2018 version of the USCS vs. URC North vs. South Shootout at three tracks in the Carolinas this coming Spring and Fall. The Rounds One and Two of the four race mini-series of events are scheduled on Friday, April 6th at Carolina Speedway in Gastonia, North Carolina and on Saturday, April 7th at Lancaster Motor Speedway in Lancaster, South Carolina for Round Two. The two tracks are less than an hour apart. The second pair of events are scheduled with Round Three returning to Carolina Speedway on Friday, September 21st and on the following night (Saturday, September 22nd) at Cherokee Speedway in Gaffney, South Carolina. Those two tracks are also less than an hour apart as well. The four events will be Championship points events for both series run under an agreed upon set of rules that will make it easy for both series teams to support. Full details will be forthcoming in the next several weeks.

The two racing series squared off for the first time in the last decade at two now defunct South Carolina Speedways as a pre-cursor of the current revival of the rivalry. Then, again during October of 2014 at Carolina and Cherokee Speedways both series took part in the first USCS vs. URC North vs. South challenge that saw an equal number of drivers from each series come out to compete with 32 cars at Carolina Speedway on the first night. The event created a huge amount of excitement for the teams and fans that carried over to the next night at Cherokee Speedway when 26 teams made it through to the first night to race again. The two events were deemed a huge success by all involved, including the race fans. Both events were won by 2010 USCS Southern Thunder Tour Rookie of the Year, Eric Riggins, Jr. from Charlotte, North Carolina.

USCS Founder and President Pete Walton said, “I was really excited when URC Vice President Curt Michael called me and offered to renew the rivalry in the manner we have set up for the 2018 season. This is quite an opportunity for the fans to see many of the best winged 360 sprint car drivers in the Nation and especially East of the Mississippi River, on one weekend at tracks less than an hour apart (both times) compete with and against one another four times in one season in one season. We both (series) have some of the best drivers in North America competing with our series on a regular basis and it will be great to be a part of this” concluded Walton.

The United Sprint Car Series, founded by Pete Walton in 1997, is the oldest racing sanctioning body operating primarily in the Southeastern United States under the same ownership since its inception. The 2018 season will be the 22nd for the USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour presented by K&N Filters.

And as far as our USCS sprint car drivers, I would put them up against any 360 teams in the country on the race track. We always invite them to just bring them on!”

Atlanta, GA – December 2, 2017 – The 2017 United Sprint Car Series presented by K&N Filters Outlaw Thunder Tour National Champion, Jordon Mallett from Greenbrier, Arkansas collected the title as Champion of the USCS Southern Thunder regional series on the way to his National title during the 2017 racing season. The young sprint car driver made five visits to the www.rockauto.com USCS victory lane as the feature winner in USCS Southern Thunder Tour competition during 2017. Mallett had 18 top five finishes in the regional series, while he used a record of perfect attendance during the twenty-six events to accumulate the most (3918) Championship points. Mallett will collect top honors in the two dirt divisions of the USCS points system including the USCS Southern Thunder regional dirt series as well as the National Championship honors. He also finished in second place in the USCS Deep South Thunder Tour and in third place in the USCS Mid-South regional series standings.
 
Eleven-time USCS National Champion, Terry Gray from Bartlett, Tennessee had 3838 points to follow Mallett in the runner-up position in the final Southern Thunder Tour standings. Gray also had a solid season with 15 top five finishes and the results found him 24 times in the top ten.
 
As a team owner Terry Gray faired even better, as his team-mate Morgan Turpen had a series leading eight wins in the Southern Thunder regional series and a third-place finish in the final standings of the series, even though missing several events. Turpen is also the 2017 Champion of both the USCS Mid-South and the USCS Deep South regional series. She finished third in the National Championship chase as well after capturing the National title in 2015 and 2016 seasons.
 
 
USCS veteran driver, Brian Thomas from Pendergrass, Georgia followed Mallett, Gray and Turpen in the 2017 USCS Southern Thunder Tour standings with a fourth-place finish after accumulating 3112 Championship points. This was quite an improvement over Thomas’ eighteenth place standing in 2016, when a mid-season injury kept him out of competition for several months. Thomas also finished in sixth place in the USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour presented by K&N Filters National point standings for 2017.
 
 
The 2012 USCS Rookie of the Year, Jeff Willingham from Ripley, Mississippi finished the 2017 Southern Thunder Tour season in fifth position with 2845 points. He will also collect fourth place honors in the USCS National Championship and the USCS Deep South Thunder regional series to go with sixth place honors in the USCS Mid-South Thunder regional series during the January USCS banquet in Atlanta.
 
 
Tony Agin who is Ft. Myers, Florida’s traveling sprint car racer finished ahead of the next group of drivers in sixth place in the Southern Thunder regional series standings. Agin possibly towed the most miles to USCS 2017 events in his first full season as a United Sprint Car Series regular. Agin improved on past season performances and garnered enough National Championship points along the way to finish in fifth place in the National point standings.  Agin will also receive accolades as the fifth-place finisher in the new USCS Deep South Thunder Tour portion of the schedule. He finished seventh in the USCS Mid-South regional series as well.
 
Scott Hunter from Concord, North Carolina finished in seventh place in the USCS Southern Thunder standings. Hunter  was impressive in his first full season in winged sprint cars after being a four-time USAC Focus Midget Champion driver. Hunter garnered the 2017 United Sprint Car Series presented by K&N Filters Southern Thunder Tour regional series Rookie of the Year honors. He is one of the few Rookie drivers to ever win a USCS main event. He did so on July 23rd on the super-fast half-mile at Lancaster Speedway in Lancaster, South Carolina. The award goes annually to the driver who has earned the most Championship points in the regional series during their first season of competition prior to competing in 25 sprint car events. Hunter had 6 top five and 13 top ten finishes in series competition during the 2017 season.
 
Veteran USCS competitor Joe Larkin from Suwannee, Georgia who mostly competed in the Southern Thunder region drove his #33 Mark Brack wrenched sprint car to an eighth-place finish in the USCS Southern Thunder Tour standings. Larkin and Brack also joined the field for several USCS Mid-South regional series weekends to garner a top-ten finish in the USCS National point standings in tenth place.
 
The 2016 USCS National “Rookie of the Year”, fifteen-year-old Danny Sams III from Northport, Florida had a pair of top five finishes in second place and 13 top ten finishes to finish in ninth place in the final Southern Thunder regional series standing. The talented young gun would have possibly finished much higher after a third-place finish in 2016 in the National standings, but, a mid-season engine failure kept him out of competition for several weeks. He also finished in eighth place in both the 2017 National and 2017 USCS Deep South point standings as well.
 
Sprint car racing veteran, Bob Auld frpm Largo, Florida rounded out the USCS Southern Thunder Tour  presented by K&N Fiters top ten driveris for the 22nd and 2018 season. Auld has been a regulat with the series for more than a decade and mostly competed in the USCS Southern Thunder region events.

Morgan Turpen claims USCS Mid-South and Deep South regional titles in 2017.

Atlanta, GA - December 01, 2017 - 24 year-old Morgan Turpen from Cordova, Tennessee didn’t win the United Sprint Car Series presented by K&N Filters National Championship as she did in 2015 and 2016 during the 40-event 2017 season, but she did lead the series win totals amongst all drivers with nine trips to the www.rockauto.com USCS Victory Lane as the main event winner. Additionally, she claimed the title in two USCS regionals series. She was the Champion of the tough USCS Mid-South Thunder Tour regional series by besting a number of great drivers including the division runner-up, 2013 USCS National Champion, Derek Hagar from Marion, Arkansas and 2017 National Champion, Jordon Mallett over the course of sixteen events for the title. She also wears the crown as the Champion of the new USCS Deep South Thunder Tour regional series as well. She won the USCS season opener at Hattiesburg Speedway in Hattiesburg, Mississippi on March 3rd, then led the standings of the Deep South region all season long to claim the title.

Turpen also finished in a respectable third place in the USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour National Championship standings behind 2017 National Champion Jordon Mallett and her team-mate and car owner, 11-time USCS National Champion, Terry Gray from Bartlett, Tennessee. Due to other commitments, she focused on wins in 2017 and would have had a real shot at a third National crown if she wasn’t absent at several events. Turpen has 21 total USCS career feature wins including the nine this season.

The final 2017 USCS Mid-South Thunder Tour point standings showed Morgan Turpen with 2425 points followed by Hagar with 2407 point. Hagar edged out Mallett with 2405 by two points for the runner-up spot. Terry Gray claimed the fourth place with 2360 points and past series Champion and two-time 2017 USCS feature winner, Marshall Skinner from Marion, Arkansas rounded out the top five drivers in the Mid-South region.
The 2012 USCS Rookie of the Year, Jeff Willingham from Ripley, Mississippi finished sixth followed by Tony Agin from Ft. Myers, Florida in seventh place and Andy McElhannon from Hernando, Mississippi who got his career-first USCS feature win at Columbus Speedway on July 7th was eighth. The 2012 USCS National Champion and two-time 2017 USCS feature winner, Tim Crawley from Benton, Arkansas followed in ninth place. Dale Howard from Byhalia, Mississippi got a career-first USCS feature win at Riverside International Speedway on October 20th and completed the top ten drivers in the USCS Mid-South Thunder Tour 2017 point standings.
The final point standings for the USCS Deep South regional series, where 90 drivers competed during the 2017 season, were even closer for the title. Morgan Turpen is on top of the final standings with 2420 points. The 2017 USCS National and Southern Thunder Tour regional series Champion, Jordon Mallett finished a scant 10 points back with 2410 points. Veteran Terry Gray chased those two all season long to finish third in the inaugural USCS Deep South standings with 2331 points. Jeff Willingham followed Gray with 2034 points and Floridian Tony Agin rounded out the regional series top five with 1802 points.

Sixth place in the standings went to past series Champion, Derek Hagar followed by another past Champion, Marshall Skinner in seventh place. The 2016 USCS National Rookie of the Year, 15-year-old, Danny Sams III from Northport, Florida finished eighth in the Deep South standings. Rookie contender, Don Warren from Clarksville, Tennessee followed Sams III in ninth place and Columbus Speedway winner, Andy McElhannon rounded out the top ten in the 2017 USCS Deep South Thunder Tour standings.

He finished in second place in the USCS Deep South Thunder Tour and in third place in the USCS Mid-South regional series standings. Mallett finished the National title chase with 5726 National Championship points.

Eleven-time USCS National Champion, Terry Gray from Bartlett, Tennessee who had 5601 points followed Mallett in the runner-up position in the final standings. Gray also had a solid season with 18 top five finishes and the results found him 32 times in the top ten. As a team owner he faired even better, as his team-mate Morgan Turpen had a series leading nine wins.

In addition to her nine wins, the two-time and the defending series Champion, Morgan Turpen from Cordova, Tennessee had 22 of her finishes in the top five and she had 32 top ten finishes to earn enough points with 5142 points to place her third in the final National point standings although she missed four events. Turpen, who was the series 2010 Rookie of the Year, additionally continued four straight seasons of Championship runs as she did garner titles in both the tough USCS Mid-South and the new USCS Deep South regional series.


The 2012 USCS Rookie of the Year, Jeff Willingham from Ripley, Mississippi finished the 2017 season in fourth position. He will also collect fourth place honors in the USCS Deep South Thunder regional series to go with a top five (5th) in the USCS Southern Thunder Tour and sixth place honors in the USCS Mid-South Thunder regional series during the January USCS banquet in Atlanta.

Ft. Myers, Florida’s traveling sprint car racer Tony Agin possibly towed the most miles to USCS 2017 events in his first full season as a United Sprint Car Series regular.

USCS Southern Thunder and seventh in the USCS Mid-South regional series as well.

HAGAR AND SENTER POST FLIP FLOP 50 USCS WINS AT THE DITCH

WEST MEMPHIS, AR – October 21, 2017 - Derek Hagar of Marion, AR won the Flip 25, and Travis Senter of Osceola, AR won the Flop 25 in the United Sprint Car Series Outlaw Thunder Tour Presented By K&N Filters Flip Flop 50 on Saturday night at Riverside International Speedway. The finish of the Flip 25 was inverted, or Flopped, for the second 25-lap main event of the evening.

If Hagar could win the Flop 25 from the 22nd starting spot, he would cash in on the $2000 bonus money posted. Hagar put on a show coming through the field on a multi-groove slick racing surface, but he fell three spots short of doubling up, and took the checkered flag in the fourth spot at the track known as “The Ditch.”

Following Hagar under the checkered flag in the Flip 25 were Cody Gardner of Byhalia, MS in second, and third went to Howard Moore of Memphis, TN. Brad Bowden of Hernando, MS took the fourth spot and USCS National point leader Jordon Mallett of Greenbrier, AR was fifth.

National Sprint Car Hall of Fame Inductee Danny Smith finished six and Chad Jones of Germantown, TN was seventh. Eighth went to the defending and two-time USCS National Champion Morgan Turpen of Cordova, TN and Jan Howard of Byhalia, MS was ninth. Brandon Hanks of Burlison, TN rounded out the top ten.

“The track was good tonight, as we could race wherever we wanted to go, or needed to go,” Hager said after winning the Flip 50. “I hope the track stays that way because I’m starting the second race on the tail and I’m going to need all of the racing grooves I can get to come to the front.”

Senter would celebrate his first ever Sprint Car win in the second 25 lapper, with second going to Hanks. Bowden took the third spot in front of Hagar, and 11-time USCS National Champion Terry Gray of Bartlett, TN finished fifth. Moore finished six in the night cap, and Dale Howard of Byhalia, MS took the seventh spot.

“This is great to win my first Sprint Car race,” Senter said. “I’ve won a lot of Mini Sprint races, but never a Sprint Car race until tonight. This is one I’ll never forget.”

Danny Smith finished eighth in the Flop 25, and ninth went to Jan Howard, with Cody Gardner rounding out the top ten.

In preliminary action, the evening’s six-lap Hoosier Speed Dash went to Moore and the winners of the four eight-lap heat races were Hanks in the Engler Machine and Tool first heat, Turpen in the Brown and Miller Racing Solutions second heat, Hagar in the Schoenfeld Headers third heat, and Justin Webb of Drummonds, TN in the Hero Graphics fourth heat. The 15-lap DMI/Bulldog Rear Ends B-Main was won by Jones.

Kyle Amerson of Matthews, AL was the Wilwood Disc Brakes Hard Charger of the Race in the Flip 25 after starting 21st and finishing 11th. Hagar was without a doubt the Wilwood Disc Brakes Hard Charger of the Race in the Flop 25, as he started 22nd and finished fourth.

Smith was the K&N Filters Pole Award winner for the Flip 25 and he took the lead at the start of the race followed by Moore, Hagar, Gardner and Gray. Moore went to the inside in turn one on lap three to power under Smith to take the lead, but that pass was negated by a caution flag when Brandon Taylor of Cumming, GA tagged the first turn guard rail.

The restart saw Smith back on the point with Moore, Hagar, Gardner, Turpen, Gray, Bowden, Andy McElhannon of Hernando, MS, Mallett, and Webb in tow coming down for the green flag. Gray spun out of the sixth spot in turn one on the restart. That moved Hanks into the top ten for the next restart.

Moore tried the inside again on lap five to get underneath Smith in turn one to take the lead, and when the lap was completed, it stuck this time. Hagar was able to make the same inside move on Smith in turn one on lap six to take over the second spot. Moore and Hagar were running turns one and two on the bottom groove, and then went top shelf on the cushion in turns three and four.

The third caution flag of the race slowed the field on lap ten when Nathan Brown of Marion, AR spun in turn one. The restart lined up with Moore in the lead followed by Hagar, Gardner, Bowden, Smith, Jones, Turpen, Marshall Skinner of Marion, AR, Mallett, and Hanks in the top ten. When the field went back to green, Moore and Hagar put on a show for the lead.

Hagar took the lead on lap 12, and Moore took the lead back on lap 13. Both drivers swapped grooves on both ends of the race track with Hagar inside and Moore outside in turns one and two, while it was Moore on the inside and Hagar on the outside in turns three and four.

On lap 20, it was Hagar powering around the outside of Moore to take the lead coming off the fourth turn. Hagar would then lead the rest of the way to take the win, and then choose to take Flip Flop Challenge for the big money. Hagar would line up 22nd and last in the starting line-up for the Flop 25.

Skinner took the lead from the third starting spot when the green flag fell to start the Flop 25, with K&N Filters Pole Award winner Dale Howard in second followed by Hanks, Gray and Senter. The field settled into a race pace until lap 11 when the caution flag came out for Webb who collected the leader Skinner, who kept going despite getting airborne in the contact with Webb.

Skinner was able to continue and held the lead for the restart followed by Dale Howard, Hanks, Senter, Gray, Jan Howard, Bowden, Smith, Turpen and Gardner, with Hagar just outside the top ten in 11th. Hagar moved into the tenth spot on lap 15.

Dale Howard and Hanks got together on lap 16, and Senter was there to drive by both of them to take over the second spot. Hanks recovered to remain in third, but Dale Howard lost several positions before he could get back up to full speed. Skinner looked like he had victory in sight with five laps to go, but things can change quickly in a Sprint Car race.

Skinner slowed off the pace on lap 20, as Senter sailed past to take the lead. Skinner would shut down his race car on lap 21 to light up caution bulb with a broken steering, possibly a result of his lap 11 encounter with Webb. Senter lined up as the leader for the five lap dash to the finish followed by Hanks, Bowden, Gray, Hagar, Moore, Dale Howard, Jan Howard, Smith and Gardner in the top ten.

Senter was able to hold to his own in the last five laps of the race, but all eyes were on Hagar, who restarted in the fifth spot. Hagar got by Gray for the fourth spot, but that was all he had in his quest for the Flip Flop Bonus Money.

In other action, Brandon Poppenheimer of Nesbit, MS won the 25-lap United Speed Contest Sanction Open-Wheel Modified feature race. USCS Open-Wheel Modified point leader Hunter Willbanks of Lakeland, TN finished second, and third went to Nathan Brown of Marion, AR. J.C. Waller of Arlington, TN was fourth and Lucas Lee of Paris, TN rounded out the top five.

It was the Texas Two-Step going down in the Rock Auto.com USCS 600 Mini Sprint 25-lap Main Event as Holden Anderson of Montgomery, TX was the winner and second went to Brandon Anderson of Montgomery, TX. Kyle Amerson of Matthews, AL was third, with fourth going to Clayton Robertson of Osceola, AR, and Kyle Carpenter of Baldwyn, MS rounding out the top five.

The next stop for the United Sprint Car Series Outlaw Thunder Tour Presented By K&N Filters will be this Saturday night, October 28 at the track known as “The Hornet’s Nest,” Talladega Short Track in Eastaboga, AL.

DALE HOWARD SURVIVES LATE RACE CRASH TO WIN RIVERSIDE USCS FALL NATIONALS MAIN EVENT #1 ON FRIDAY NIGHT
7

WEST MEMPHIS, AR - October 20, 2017 - Dale Howard of Byhalia, MS survived a late race crash to come back and win the first night of the USCS Fall Nationals for the United Sprint Car Series Outlaw Thunder Tour Presented By K&N Filters on Friday night at Riverside International Speedway. Howard took the lead on lap 24 of the 25 lap A-Main event after flirting with disaster.

For the first 23 laps of the A-Main, Howard chased early race leader Brandon Hanks of Burlison, TN, with Ernie Ainsworth of Bartlett, TN close behind the top two in the third spot. When Hanks got bogged down in heavy lapped traffic on lap 24, Howard went to the high groove, and Ainsworth dove for the inside in turn one.

The lead trio was three-wide in turn two and hard racing caused contact being made by all three drivers. Hanks was the meat in the Sprint Car sandwich, as Howard hooked him. Hanks spun to the top of the track, hit the outside concrete retaining wall, and flipped on his side to bring out the red flag. Hanks was O.K., but he was done for the night, and gave the lead to Howard for the restart.

Howard pilled away from Ainsworth when the green flag came out, followed by the white flag, and then the checkered flag on the 25th tour. Marshall Skinner of Marion, AR passed Ainsworth for second in the green, white, checkered dash to the finish, and Ainsworth has to settle for third. USCS point leader Jordon Mallett of Greenbrier, AR was fourth, and fifth went to Andy McElhannon of Hernando, MS.

Howard Moore of Memphis, TN started 17th and finished sixth to earn the Wilwood Disc Brakes Hard Charger of the Race Award. National Sprint Car Hall of Fame Inductee Danny Smith of Chillicothe, OH took the seventh spot and Chad Jones of Germantown, TN was eighth. The ninth spot went to Dewayne White of Byhalia, MS and Travis Senter of Osceola, AR rounded out the top ten.

In preliminary action, Howard also won the six-lap Hoosier Race Tire Speed Dash and the Brown and Miller Racing Solutions second eight-lap Heat Race. Ainsworth won the Engler Machine and Tool first eight-lap heat race and the Schoenfeld Headers third eight-lap heat race was won by the defending and two-time USCS National Champion Morgan Turpen of Cordova, TN. Brad Bowden of Hernando, MS rallied from the 12th starting spot to win the 15-lap B-Main Race.

The 2017 Riverside International Speedway Open Wheel Modified Champion Brandon Poppenheimer of Nesbit, MS led wire-to-wire to win the 25-lap K&N Filters USCS Outlaw Modified Main Event. J.C. Waller of Arlington, TN was second and Lucas Lee of Paris, TN rallied from the 13th starting spot to finish third. The fourth spot went to Craig Vaughn of Olive Branch, MS, and Donald Null of Brighton, TN took the fifth spot.

Charles Smith of Atoka, TN was sixth, Bobby Allen of Mason, TN finished seventh, Paul Robinson of Tupelo, MS took the eighth spot, ninth went to Nathan Brown of Marion, AR, and Dillon Knight of Burlison, TN rounded out the top ten. In preliminary action, Poppenheimer won the Engler Machine and Tool first eight lap Heat Race winner, and Waller won the Brown and Miller Racing Solutions second eight lap heat race.

In www.RockAuto.com USCS Mini Sprint action on Friday night, Kyle Amerson of Matthews, AL took the lead with five laps to go and won the 20-lap main event. Travis Senter of Osceola, AR finished second and third went to Holden Anderson of Montgomery, TX. Brandon Taylor of Cumming, GA took the fourth spot and Steven Parker of West Memphis, AR was fifth.

Conner Morrell of Palmetto, FL finished sixth, and Clayton Robertson of Osceola, AR was seventh. The eighth spot went to Leroy Carley of Cunningham, TN and Kyle Carpenter of Baldwyn, MS was ninth, while Tyler Jones of West Memphis, AR rounded out the top ten.

In preliminary action, the six-lap Hoosier Race Tire Speed Dash was won by Taylor and the Engler Machine and Tool first eight-lap heat race was won by Senter. Amerson won the Brown and Miller Racing Solutions second eight-lap heat race, and Carpenter won the Schoenfeld Headers third eight-lap heat race.

The Street Stocks ran preliminary events on Friday night for the Mid -South Street Stock Challenge at Riverside International Speedway in the Fall Nationals, and the four eight-lap heat races were won by Jared Hays of West Memphis, AR, Nathan Brown of Marion, AR, Ricky Vandergriff of West Memphis, AR, and Johnny Gustavus of West Memphis, AR. The ten-lap Pole Scramble was won by Lance O’Brien of West Memphis, AR.

The United Sprint Car Series Outlaw Thunder Tour Presented By K&N Filters, the Rock Auto.com USCS 600 Mini Sprints, the USCS Open-Wheel Modifieds, and the Street Stocks will be joined by the Late Models on Saturday night at Riverside International Speedway. Gates open at 3 p.m. with Racing scheduled for 5:30 p.m.

MOSS CHARGES LATE FOR CHEROKEE SPEEDWAY 2nd 2017 USCS WIN

GAFFNEY, SC – September 23, 2017 - Lance Moss of Cherryville, NC made a late-race pass for the lead to win the 25-lap United Sprint Car Series Outlaw Thunder Tour Presented By K&N Filters main event in front of a standing-room-only crowd on Saturday night at Cherokee Speedway. Moss made the outside groove of Cherokee Speedway lead him to his second USCS win of the season.

The 11-time USCS National Champion Terry Gray of Bartlett, TN led the first 23 laps of the race, but had to settle for second. It was a good points night for Gray though, who is battling Jordon Mallett of Greenbrier, AR for the 2017 USCS National Championship.

Robbie Stillwaggon of Burlington, NJ fell a couple of spots short of his third USCS win of the season with a third-place showing on Saturday night. K&N Filters Pole Award starter Terry Witherspoon of Jacksonville, FL took the fourth spot and fifth went to past USCS Southern region Rookie of the Year, Jake McLain of Matthews, NC. Current USCS RooNationkie of the Year points leader, Brandon Taylor of Cumming, GA was sixth and USCS National and Southern Thunder regional series point leader Jordon Mallett of Greenbrier, AR finished seventh.

Scott Hunter of Concord, NC started 14th and finished eighth to earn the Wilwood Disc Brakes Hard Charger Award. Jeff Willingham of Ripley, MS drove to a ninth-place finish and Joe Larkin of Suwanee, GA rounded out the top ten. Moss also won the eight-lap Engler Machine and Tool first heat race.

Gray took the lead at the drop of the green flag followed by Witherspoon, Moss, Eric Riggins Jr. of Charlotte, NC, and McLain. Riggins was on the move, taking to the top shelf to pass Moss for the third spot on the opening lap and Witherspoon for second on lap two.

Going into the main event, Riggins was looking for his ninth straight win in USCS competition that included Dashes, Heat Races and A-Main events. Riggins had swept the last two USCS events at Dixie Speedway in Woodstock, GA on September 9, and on Friday night at Carolina Speedway in Gastonia, NC, which was the first of two night of the North-South Shootout.

Riggins had won the six-lap Hoosier Racing Tire Speed Dash and the eight-lap Brown and Miller Racing Solutions second heat race earlier in the evening. Riggins was also looking to become the first driver to sweep the North-South Shootout for a second time, after pulling the feat in 2013.

By lap five, Riggins had closed in on Gray to challenge for the lead, but the hopes of continuing the streak for Riggins came to a crashing end on lap seven. Bob Auld of Largo, FL spun in front of the leaders in turn two. Gray was running the inside groove and was able to miss Auld’s car on the high side of the track, but the rim riding Riggins had no place to go and hit Auld’s machine.

Neither driver was injured, but both race cars were done for the evening. Gray led Moss, Witherspoon, McLain, Stillwaggon, Taylor, Tanner Witherspoon of Jacksonville, FL, Mallet, Hunter, and Willingham down for the restart. Moss went right to work, going to the cushion on the high side of Cherokee Speedway to challenge Gray for the lead. The field was slowed for a second time on lap ten when Tanner Witherspoon spun in turn three. Gray led Moss, Terry Witherspoon, McLain, Stillwaggon, Taylor, Mallett, Hunter, Willingham and Larkin down for the green flag to go back to battle. Gray was able to put a little distance between himself and Moss, while Stillwaggon moved up to battle McLain for fourth.

Stillwaggon went to the top shelf and passed McLain for the fourth spot on lap 16. Gray began to encounter lapped traffic on lap 17 and Moss closed in to challenge for the point. Moss could use his high side momentum to pull alongside Gray entering the turns, but the leader had his own momentum to stay out front coming off the corners.

Moss got a big run on Gray coming off turn two on lap 23, pulled alongside entering turn three, and he took the lead on the high side coming off the fourth turn. Gray tried to make an inside pass through turns one and two on lap 24, but Moss pulled away to seal the deal. Behind the battle for the lead, Stillwaggon was able to pass Terry Witherspoon for third on lap 23.

The next event for the United Sprint Car Series Outlaw Thunder Tour Presented By K&N Filters will be on Saturday night October 7 at Talladega Short Track in Eastaboga, AL, as the final stretch drive begins for the 2017 USCS National Championship.

Riggins sweeps USCS North vs. South Round #1 at CAROLINA SPEEDWAY

GASTONIA, NC – September 22, 2017 - Eric Riggins Jr. of Charlotte, NC swept the United Sprint Car Series Outlaw Thunder Tour 30-lap Main Event Presented By K&N Filters on Friday night at Carolina Speedway. Riggins not only won the main event, but also the Brown and Miller Racing Solutions second eight-lap heat race, and the Hoosier Racing Tire six-lap Speed Dash.

After taking the lead from early race pacesetter Lance Moss of Cherryville, NC on lap seven, Riggins packed his bags, turned in the key and checked out on the field leaving only the top four drivers on the lead lap when the checkered flag fell. Riggins showed that when a man needs the money, he races hard.

“During the off weekend, we went on vacation to the Bahamas, and we got robbed twice while we were there, so we came home low on cash,” Riggins said. “This win really helps making up what we lost. I love racing here at my home track Carolina Speedway, and I want say to thanks the fans for their support.”

Riggins scored his second straight USCS win of the season after posting the victory on September 9th at Dixie Speedway in Woodstock, GA. The Carolina Speedway race was the first of two nights for the USCS North vs. South Shootout, with night two on Saturday night at Cherokee Speedway in Gaffney, SC. Riggins swept the North-South event in 2013, and will try to become the first driver to sweep it twice in USCS history.

“Our team has struggled the first part of the season, but we’ve really worked hard in the shop to turn things around, and it’s paying off,” Riggins said. “I’ve got a dedicated family and crew that have sacrificed a lot. I couldn’t do this without them.”

Riggins went under the checkered flag with a full straightaway lead over Robbie Stillwagon of Burlington, NJ, and Moss ended up taking the third spot. The 11-time USCS National Champion Terry Gray of Bartlett, TN finished fourth and was the last car on the lead lap. Scott Hunter of Concord, NC was fifth and sixth went to USCS Southern Thunder Tour former Rookie of the Year, Jake McLain of Matthews, NC.

USCS veteran racer Joe Larkin of Suwanee, GA started 17th and finished seventh to earn the Wilwood Disc Brakes Hard Charger of the Race Award. Another USCS veteran racer, Bob Auld of Largo, FL took the eighth spot and 2017 series newcomer Garrett Green of Valrico, FL was ninth and Dan Jones of Concord, NC rounded out the top ten.

In other preliminary action, National Sprint Car Hall of Fame Inductee Danny Smith of Chillicothe, OH won the eight-lap Engler Machine and Tool first heat race. Moss earned the K&N Filters Pole Award to lead the field down for the green flag of the main event. Moss took the lead followed by Jones, who started on the outside of the front row.

The caution flag came out on lap one when Smith slowed in turn four with a mechanical issue and Hunter spun to avoid making contact with Smith. That necessitated a complete restart. On the next green flag, Jones got sideways on the inside of turn one and that caused a chain reaction back through the pack that collected Auld and Bronzie Lawson IV of Southern Pines, NC.

The second complete restart was a good one with Moss taking the lead with Jones in second, and Riggins hustling up from his sixth starting spot into third. Riggins made quick work of Jones on lap two to move up the second spot, and Stillwagon dropped Jones to fourth on lap three.

Riggins was all over Moss to challenge for the lead on lap five, and on lap six tried to get a run on the outside coming off the second turn. Moss moved up and Riggins had to get out of the throttle, as he ran out real estate. The Carolina Kid reloaded the guns on his #47 machine to take another shot at Moss on lap seven.

Riggins threw a textbook slide job maneuver through turns one and two on lap seven to take the lead. Riggins entered the first turn of Carolina Speedway on the high following Moss’ tire tracks, but then dove for the bottom of the track, got under Moss, and then slid up in front of him to grab the point. Once in the lead, Riggins then pulled away from the field.

Riggins stay up on the cushion of clay on the high side of the race track, and he could power around lapped cars with ease. The only thing that slowed him down was a lap 16 caution flag for a four-car tangle on the front straightaway.

Brandon Taylor of Cumming, GA, Danny Sams III of Englewood, FL, and Jones tangled with the lapped car of Jeff Willingham of Ripley, MS while battling for the fifth position. All drivers were O.K. Riggins led Moss, Stillwagon, and Gray back to the green flag on the lead lap, with Hunter, Green, McLain, Larkin, Jones and Auld a lap down in fifth through tenth respectively.

Once the field went back to green flag action, Stillwagon got to the inside of Moss and passed him for the second spot coming off the fourth turn on lap 17. By lap 20, Riggins had a full straightaway lead on Stillwagon, and maintained that advantage for the last ten laps of the race.

The USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour Presented By K&N Filters travels South down I-85 to Cherokee Speedway in Gaffney, SC on Saturday night for night two of the USCS North vs. South Shootout.

USCS OUTLAW THUNDER TOUR SPRINT CAR North vs. South Shootout HEADLINES RACING ACTION at CAROLINA SPEEDWAY ON FRIDAY (9/22).

Atlanta, GA – September 21, 2017 - The United Sprint Car Series presented by K&N Filters (www.uscsracing.com) returns to the red dirt 3/8-mile racing surface at Carolina Speedway in Gastonia, North Carolina for a full night of racing action this Friday, September 22nd during the 9th annual USCS Carolina Thunder Nationals and 5th annual USCS North vs. South Shootout Round #1. The event is the 34th of the season for the USCS winged sprint car division during its 21st season of competition. Friday night’s racing action features a full program of USCS winged outlaw style sprint car racing plus five other racing divisions.

Additionally, the action-packed card features the Lightning Late Models and the Mid-East Modified Tour for open wheel modified cars. Also on the schedule are three of the speedway’s racing divisions. The Super Street, Pure Stock and Hornets will join the three touring divisions.

The USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour winged sprint cars will contest a full racing program including their Hoosier Speed Dash, Qualifying Heat races and Main Events. All five other divisions will also contest a full program of qualifying races and main events.

The Carolina Speedway USCS North vs. South Shootout event is expected to bring top winged outlaw sprint car drivers from at least eight states to the track from as far away as Ohio, New Jersey, Florida and Arkansas. The exotic fire breathing, alcohol burning, 700 horsepower open-wheeled USCS sprint cars weight just 1,300 pounds, and are pound for pound the World’s most powerful short track race cars. The cars will literally fly around the track surface at speeds well over 130 M.P.H. It is not uncommon to see the USCS sprint cars popping "wheelies" or doing wheel stands because of the brute force of their engines and their huge 17-inch wide rear tires.

Past USCS Southern Thunder regional series “Rookie of the Year” Eric Riggins, Jr. from Charlotte, North Carolina swept the 2013 North vs. South Shootout events by winning at both Carolina Speedway on September 30th and again on the following night at Cherokee Speedway in Gaffney, South Carolina.

The following year (2014) the event was rained out. The 2015 version was won by Iowan Terry McCall. Last year Trey Starks from Puyallup, Washington won at both 2016 events at Carolina Speedway on September 30th and again on the following night at Cherokee Speedway in Gaffney, South Carolina to match Riggins feat.

On the following night, the USCS presented by K&N Filters drivers travel South less than an hour down Interstate 85 for Round #2 of the 2017 version of the USCS North vs. South Shootout at Cherokee Speedway.

Robbie Stillwaggon from Burlington, New Jersey won the April 7th USCS event at Carolina this year. Lance Moss from Cherryville, North Carolina is the most recent USCS feature winner at Carolina Speedway during the series’ July 22, 2017 event.

Carolina Speedway is located at 6355 Union Rd., Gastonia, NC 28054. The race track phone number is: (704) 869-0313.

THE CAROLINA KID WHISTLES DIXIE WITH USCS WIN

WOODSTOCK, GA – September 9, 2017- Eric Riggins Jr. of Charlotte, NC won the 30-lap United Sprint Car Series Outlaw Thunder Tour Presented By K&N Filters main event on Saturday night at Dixie Speedway. The Carolina Kid led wire-to-wire from his outside front row starting spot to park his Apha Canvas #47 in the www.rockauto.com USCS Victory Lane.Itwas Riggins’ second USCS career win at Dixie Speedway in a caution-free race.

Riggins held as much as a half straightaway lead during the race, but in the closing laps, the race leader encountered heavy lapped traffic, and the defending and two-time USCS National Champion Morgan Turpen of Cordova, TN closed in to challenge for the lead. Riggins wouldn’t give up the preferred inside groove, and held on for the victory.

“Dixie Speedway has been very good to me, as I got my first USCS win here,” Riggins said. “I really had to slow my pace in lapped traffic, as it seemed everyone wanted the bottom groove, but as long as we covered it, I figured it would be tough to pass me.”

Turpen had to settle for the second spot in her #10m Terry Gray Racing mount. Third place went to K&N Filters Pole Award Winner Joey Schmidt of Ellisville, MS. USCS point leader Jordon Mallett of Greenbrier, AR finished fourth, and sprint car rookie driver Scott Hunter of Concord, MS started eighth and took the fifth spot to earn the Wilwood Disc Brakes Hard Charger of the Race Award.

Jake McLain of Indian Trail, NC finished sixth and seventh went to Brian Thomas of Pendergrass, GA. The 2012 USCS Rookie of the Year, Jeff Willingham of Ripley, MS took the eighth spot and Joe Larkin of Suwanee, GA was ninth. Bo Barber of Clarksville, TN rounded out the top ten.

In preliminary action, Hunter won the six-lap Hoosier Speed Dash and Gray won the Engler Machine and Tool first eight-lap heat race. Willingham won the Brown and Martin Racing Solutions second eight-lap heat race.

Riggins took the lead from his outside front row starting spot at the start of the race followed by Schmidt, Mallett, Turpen, and McLain. Turpen went to the inside groove to drive Mallett coming off the fourth turn of the opening lap to take over the third spot. While Riggins began to pull away, Turpen closed in on Schmidt to challenge for the second spot by lap five.

Turpen was able to get an inside run on Schmidt coming off the second turn on lap nine, and scooted by to take over the second position. By this time, Riggins had opened up a half straightaway lead on the field. With ten laps to go, Riggins moved up on a tight three-car battle for sixth among McLain, Thomas, and Willingham.

While Riggins slowed his fast pace as the race leader to carefully and methodically find a way to put the three cars in front of him a lap down, Turpen charged to the rear nerf bar of Riggins sprint car to challenge for the lead on lap 24. Riggins just kept covering the bottom groove of Dixie Speedway, and Turpen had no other groove available to successfully make a pass for the lead.

The caution flag was not needed for the 30-lap race, just the green, white and checkered, as Riggins hung on to take a five car-length margin of victory under the checkered flag and into the winner’s circle. While the Carolina Kid whistles Dixie, the next two USCS races will be on his home turf.

The USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour Presented By K&N Filters races scheduled for Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, FL on September 15 and 16 have been postponed due to Hurricane Irma, and will be rescheduled for some time in November on dates to be announced.

So, the next two USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour Presented By K&N Filters races will take place at Carolina Speedway in Gastonia, NC on Friday night, September 22, and at Cherokee Speedway in Gaffney, SC on Saturday night, September 23.

MALLETT GOES TOP SHELF FOR SWEEP OF USCS LAVONIA, GA RACE

September 3, 2017

LAVONIA, GA – United Sprint Car Series point leader Jordon Mallett of Greenbrier, AR got out his broom and swept the USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour Presented By K&N Filters event on Sunday night at Lavonia Speedway. Mallett dusted off the top shelf of the 3/8-mile clay oval to win all events he competed in, and held off challenges from Terry Gray and Eric Riggins Jr.to park his #14 in the www.RockAuto.com USCS Victory Lane at the end of the 30-lap main event.

Mallett took the lead from the 11-time USCS National Champion Gray on lap four and led until a lap 12 restart when Riggins took the lead, but Mallett got his mount wound up and grabbed the lead back on lap 13. Riggins stayed close the rest of the way, but Mallett pulled away in the closing laps to seal the deal for his sixth USCS win of the 2017 season.

“At the start of the race, Terry got the better start, as we had a little stumble taking off for the green,” Mallett said. “We got a great run off the second turn and got alongside Terry to take the lead. Then on the restart, the car stumbled once again and Eric took the lead away from us. But once we got our momentum going on the high side, and we got by to take the win.”

Riggins of Charlotte, NC finished second and third went to Roookie of the Year contender Scott Hunter of Concord, NC who started tenth and earned the Wilwood Disc Brakes Hard Charger of the Race Award. Rookie of the Year candidate Brandon Taylor of Cumming, GA took the fourth spot and 2016 Southern Outlaw Sprints Rookie of the year, Joey Schmidt of Ellisville, MS was fifth.

Jeff Oliver of Pendergrass, GA finished sixth and seventh went to Matt Linder of Hoschton, GA. Jeff Willingham of Ripley, MS took the eighth spot and Brian Thomas of Pendergrass, GA was ninth. The defending and two-time USCS National Champion Morgan Turpen of Cordova, TN rounded out the top ten.

In preliminary action, Mallett won the six-lap Hoosier Speed Dash and the Engler Machine and Tool first eight-lap heat race. Gray of Bartlett, TN won the Brown and Martin Racing Solutions second eight-lap heat race.

With his heat race win, Mallett won the K&N Filters Pole Award, but it was Gray coming from the outside front row starting spot that took the lead at the start of the race followed by Mallett, Riggins, Turpen, and Oliver. Mallett went to the high groove to challenge Gray for the lead early and often, but the 11-time USCS National Champion was able to slide up in front of Mallett to protect the lead.

Coming off turn two on lap four, Mallett got a good bite coming off the cushion and pulled alongside Gray down the backstretch. The lead duo raced side-by-side through turns three and four with Mallett taking the lead coming off the fourth turn. Once out in front, Mallett started to pull away from Gray keeping his momentum going on the high side.

Behind the leaders, Turpen and Oliver battled for the fourth position. Oliver jumped the cushion on the high side of turn three on the seventh lap and hit the wall. He was able to continue, but Taylor got by to take over the fifth spot. The leaders were in heavy lapped traffic by lap nine. Mallett had almost a full straightaway on Gray, when trouble unfolded in front of the second place driver.

Tony Agin of Fort Myers, FL was running tenth and had just gone a lap down to the leader when he flipped in turn three and landed on his wheels. Gray was committed to the high side, had no place to go and slide into Agin’s disabled race car. Both cars were done for the night, and neither driver was injured.

The restart after the red flag period saw Mallett leading Riggins, Turpen, Taylor, Hunter, Oliver, Schmidt, Thomas, Linder, and Larkin for the restart. Riggins dove for the inside to throw a slide job on Mallett for the restart, and made it stick to take the lead. Mallett once again set up shop on the top shelf of the race track, and used the good bite off turn two to retake the lead on lap 13.

Mallett and Riggins pulled away from Turpen in the third spot, but the “Queen of the Wings” slowed off the pace on lap 24 with a blown engine. Riggins stayed within a few car-lengths of Mallett until the leader made some key moves in lapped traffic to seal the deal with five laps to go.

The next race for the United Sprint Car Series Outlaw Thunder Tour Presented by K&N Filters will be on Saturday night at Dixie Speedway in Woodstock, GA.

USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour presented by K&N Filters winged sprint cars invade two Georgia and East Tennessee tracks for the USCS “Salute to American Labor” 2017 weekend double-header.

Atlanta, GA – August 29, 2017 – The United Sprint Car Series Outlaw Thunder Tour presented by K&N Filters winged sprint cars keep a busy 21st anniversary tour rolling with a northeast Georgia, Eastern Tennessee double-header in the USCS Southern Thunder Tour region on Labor Day weekend. On this Friday, September 1st the series visits Lavonia Speedway in Lavonia, Georgia. On Saturday, September 2nd the USCS drivers will be making their return to I-75 Raceway in Niota, Tennessee for their second visit of 2017 to the 1/3-mile dirt oval during the 2017 season.

Each night’s event will pay $2000 to the driver who reaches thewww.rockauto.com USCS Victory Lane first as the main-event winner. This makes a $4300 sweep in cash possible including each night’s Hoosier Speed Dash plus contingency awards. Additionally, any driver who makes the starting field in both main events is guaranteed to take home at least $600 in prize money plus contingency awards. Both events will award USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour National points as well as Southern Thunder Tour regional points.

The series last scheduled visited to Lavonia Speedway was on May 6th of this season, but, the event was rained-out. The four-tenths-mile clay oval track was on the original USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour schedule in 1997 and the series has aced there at least once most seasons since then.

The United Sprint Car Series made its first stop at I-75 Raceway during the 2016 season when two-time USCS National Champion Morgan Turpen from Cordova, Tennessee was the winner. Turpen repeated her mastery of the East Tennessee oval on April 28th of this season.

The series originally had an event at Tri-County Racetrack in Brasstown, North Carolina on its schedule for Labor Day Monday, but, that event has been recently removed from the 2017 schedule

SAMMY SWINDELL WINS USCS TENNESSEE TANGLE AND THANKS FANS AT LEXINGTON 104 SPEEDWAY

LEXINGTON, TN - August 26, 2017 - National Sprint Car Hall of Fame Inductee Sammy Swindell of Bartlett, TN won the 30-lap United Sprint Car Series Outlaw Thunder Tour Presented by K&N Filters race at Lexington 104 Speedway on Saturday night. Swindell was so happy about the win after dominating the race he stayed awhile in Victory Lane.

“This win was all about an old guy with a lot of experience in a good race car,” Swindell said after being asked about what he attributed to the convincing victory. When told he looked more like a hungry 20-year-old by the way he aggressively worked lapped traffic, Swindell added, “I was pretty hungry because we haven’t won in a while, as a lot of different things would keep us from winning.”

Swindell put it all together on Saturday night and at one point in the race had a full straightaway lead on the rest of the 23-car field. Swindell spent the majority of the race in heavy lapped traffic. It was his career second United Sprint Car Series victory.

A pair of former USCS National Champions, Tim Crawley of Benton, AR and Derek Hagar of Marion, AR got close once, but Swindell overcame the late race gremlins he spoke of that had cost him in the past to reach Victory Lane to post the wire-to-wire win.

A packed house showed their appreciation of Swindell, who began his career at West Tennessee tracks as a young teenager back in the 1970s, following in the footsteps of his father Sam Swindell. As the crowd gathered around Victory Lane, Swindell took the time to thank them for coming, got reflective, and then did something not many expected.

“I’ve really enjoyed racing here tonight, not just because of the win, but to meet so many people that said they watched my Dad race, and watched me early in my career,” Swindell said. “It was really nice to get to race in front of them tonight, and I thank them for coming.”

After the post-race interview, Swindell was free to go back to the pit area, but he stayed in Victory Lane for another 30 to 40 minutes to meet the fans of all ages, sign autographs, and pose for photos with those fans in front of his winning A.G. Raines Acme Graphics Special. Swindell stayed until everyone got an opportunity for an autograph or a photo op that wanted one.

Crawley finished second and third went to Dale Howard of Byhalia, MS . The defending and two-time USCS National Champion Morgan Turpen of Cordova, TN took the fourth spot and Justin Webb of Drummonds, TN was fifth. Rookie of the Year candidate Brandon Taylor of Cumming, GA finished sixth and seventh went to 11-time USCS National Champion Terry Gray of Bartlett, TN.

USCS point leader Jordan Mallett of Greenbrier, AR took the eighth spot and in ninth place was another former USCS National Champion Marshall Skinner of Marion, AR. Series newcomer Garrett Green of Valrico, FL rounded out the top ten. Sean Hosey of Lima, OH started 20th and finished 13th to earn the Wilwood Disc Brakes Hard Charger of the Race Award.

In preliminary action, Crawley won the six-lap Hoosier Tire Speed Dash, and the three eight lap heat races were won by Webb in the Engler Machine and Tool first heat, Hagar in the Brown and Miller Racing Solutions second heat, and Swindell in the Schoenfeld Headers third heat. With the inversion, that earned Swindell the K&N Filters Pole Award.

At the drop of the green flag to start the race, Swindell took the lead with Hagar following from his outside front row starting spot in second, and Crawley hustling up from his sixth starting spot to take third. Crawley got by Hagar for second on lap two, but Swindell was beginning to pull away. By lap four, Swindell caught the cars on the tail of the lead lap.

The top five cars of Swindell, Crawley, Hagar, Howard and Webb remained the same for the first half of the race, with Swindell opening up a full straightaway lead over Crawley at one point. But while the leader tried to weave his way through lapped traffic, Crawley and Hagar closed in. Swindell’s big lead was down to just a couple of car-lengths by the halfway point in the race.

The red flag came out on lap 16 when Don Warren of Clarksville, TN spun in turn four, clipped the inside berm of the race track and tipped over on his side. Warren was not injured. During the red flag period, Hagar went to the pits and was out for the evening with a broken torque tube.

Swindell led the field down for the restart followed by Crawley, Howard, Turpen, Webb, Mallett, Skinner, Gray, McElhannon and Green. With clean air in front of him, Swindell broke away from the pack, but the field was slowed again on lap 19 when Jake Knight of Georgetown, MS spun on the front stretch collecting Ronny Howard of Olive Branch, MS.

After the restart, there was no catching “Slammin’ Sammy” as he worked lapped traffic to perfection. Swindell took the checkered flag with almost a full straightaway advantage over Crawley, Dale Howard, Turpen and Webb.

On the undercard to the USCS Winged Outlaw Sprint Cars, the K&N Filters USCS Outlaw Modifieds put on one of the most memorable races in the history of the series. The top three cars came off the fourth turn to the checkered flag in three abreast formation bringing the packed house to their feet!

Matt Cooper of McKenzie, TN took the win followed by Michael Turner of Paris, TN in second, and Hunter Wilbanks of Lakeland, TN finished third. Turner led the majority of the race with Cooper trying to challenge on the outside. Cooper hit the backstretch wall several times with his right-side wheels spraying a shower of sparks.

The 21st annual United Sprint Car Series Outlaw Thunder Tour presented by K& N Filters continues this coming Labor Day Holiday Weekend with races in Georgia and Tennessee. Lavonia Speedway in Lavonia, GA will host the USCS Winged Outlaw Sprint Cars on Friday, September 1st, and then the action moves to the Volunteer State on Saturday, September 2nd with a stop at I-75 Raceway in Sweetwater, TN. Late Model and Stock Car racing fill an action-packed racing card each night as well.

HAGAR HUSTLES TO BOYD’S SPEEDWAY USCS WIN

August 18, 2017

RINGGOLD, GA – The 2013 USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour National Champion Derek Hagar of Marion, AR drove his DHR Chassis Parts and Shocks Special to his fourth United Sprint Car Series Outlaw Thunder Tour Presented by K&N Filters win of the season Friday night by leading all 30 laps of the A-Main at Boyd’s Speedway.

Hagar started on the outside of the front row, and after a side-by-side battle on the opening tour with USCS point leader Jordon Mallett of Greenbrier, AR, took the lead coming off the fourth turn on the high side. Hagar then pulled away using multiple grooves around the 3/8-mile clay oval.

“The track was great tonight and we could really move around on it,” Hagar said. “There wasn’t much cushion on the high side, but we had our car set up well, and we could run the middle and the bottom. We could go where ever we needed to go to get around the lapped cars.”

The 11-time USCS National Champion Terry Gray of Bartlett, TN finished second, and tried to make a late-race charge on Hagar, but ran out of laps. Mallett ended up in the third spot, and the defending and two-time USCS National Champion Morgan Turpen of Cordova, TN was fourth. Andy McElhannon of Hernando, MS finished fifth.

Sixth went to Brandon Taylor of Cumming, GA, and Eric Riggins Jr. of Charlotte, NC earned the K&N Filters Pole Award, but spun out before the green flag came out and had to start at the rear of the 23-car field. Riggins rallied to finish seventh 30 laps later.

The 2016 USCS Rookie of the Year Danny Sams III of Englewood, FL took the eighth spot, and Joey Schmidt of Ellisville MS was ninth. Aubrey Black of Lookout Mountain, GA started 20th and rounded out the top ten to earn the Wilwood Disc Brakes Hard Charger of the Race Award.

In preliminary action, Turpen won the six-lap Hoosier Tire Speed Dash, and the three eight lap heat races were won by Mallett in the Engler Machine and Tool first heat, Riggins in the Brown and Miller Racing Solutions second heat, and Hagar in the Schoenfeld Headers third heat.

Hagar led the first lap followed by Mallett, Matt Linder of Hoschton, GA, Turpen and Gray. Bob Auld of Largo, FL brought out the first of four caution flags on lap six with a spin in turn four. When the field went back to green flag action, Hagar pulled away from Mallett, while Gray went to the inside to challenge his teammate Turpen for the fourth spot.

Gray was able drive underneath Turpen coming off the fourth turn on lap seven. By lap ten, Hagar began to encounter the cars on the tail of the lead lap with a half-straightaway lead on Mallett. The lead was erased on lap 11 when Don Warren of Clarksville, TN spun in turn two to light up the caution bulb.

The top ten for the restart at the one-third mark of the race had Hagar in the lead followed by Mallett, Linder, Gray, Turpen, Sams, McElhannon, Joe Larkin of Suwanee, GA, Schmidt, and Jake McLain of Matthews, NC. When the field went back to green flag action, Taylor stepped to the outside and passed Sams for sixth.

Turpen led a three-car battle for fifth with Taylor, Sams and McElhannon. McLain lost his right side header in turn two on lap 14 to bring out the caution flag, but not before it was run over by Jeff Oliver of Pendergrass, GA. Both cars were done for the evening. Hagar led Mallett, Linder, Gray, Turpen, Taylor, McElhannon, Sams, Larkin, and Schmidt down for the restart.

The battle for the fifth spot resumed among Turpen, Taylor, McElhannon and Sams. McElhannon was able to drive under Taylor for the sixth spot coming off the fourth turn on lap 15. The final caution flag came out on lap 17 when Linder stalled on the front straightaway while running third, and he was out for the evening.

That reshuffled the top ten as Hagar led Mallett, Gray, Turpen, Taylor, McElhannon, Riggins, Larkin, Sams, and Schmidt down for the restart. McElhannon got by Taylor on the restart, while Hagar pulled away from Mallett, and Gray challenged him for the second spot.

Hagar got into lapped traffic on lap 21 with almost a full straightaway lead on Mallett. Gray was able to get by Mallett for second on lap 22. Gray had the fastest car on the track in the final eight laps of the race, but he couldn’t catch Hagar to challenge for the lead.

In RockAuto.com USCS 600 Mini Sprint action, Bobby Zaiontz of Columbus, MS drove to a wire-to-wire win in the 15-lap main event. Pulling double-duty on Friday night, Brandon Taylor of Cumming, GA took the second spot, and Conner Morrell of Palmetto, FL finished third. Gregg Jones of Navarre, FL was fourth and fifth went to Tommy Thompson of Ten Mile, TN.

Jim Kradel of Navarre, FL finished sixth, and Jim McNulty of Navarre, FL took the seventh spot. A.J. Parrish of Jacksonville, FL started tenth and finished eighth to earn the Wilwood Disc Brakes Hard Charger Award.

HAGAR HUSTLES TO BOYD’S SPEEDWAY USCS WIN

August 18, 2017

RINGGOLD, GA – The 2013 USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour National Champion Derek Hagar of Marion, AR drove his DHR Chassis Parts and Shocks Special to his fourth United Sprint Car Series Outlaw Thunder Tour Presented by K&N Filters win of the season Friday night by leading all 30 laps of the A-Main at Boyd’s Speedway.

Hagar started on the outside of the front row, and after a side-by-side battle on the opening tour with USCS point leader Jordon Mallett of Greenbrier, AR, took the lead coming off the fourth turn on the high side. Hagar then pulled away using multiple grooves around the 3/8-mile clay oval.

“The track was great tonight and we could really move around on it,” Hagar said. “There wasn’t much cushion on the high side, but we had our car set up well, and we could run the middle and the bottom. We could go where ever we needed to go to get around the lapped cars.”

The 11-time USCS National Champion Terry Gray of Bartlett, TN finished second, and tried to make a late-race charge on Hagar, but ran out of laps. Mallett ended up in the third spot, and the defending and two-time USCS National Champion Morgan Turpen of Cordova, TN was fourth. Andy McElhannon of Hernando, MS finished fifth.

Sixth went to Brandon Taylor of Cumming, GA, and Eric Riggins Jr. of Charlotte, NC earned the K&N Filters Pole Award, but spun out before the green flag came out and had to start at the rear of the 23-car field. Riggins rallied to finish seventh 30 laps later.

The 2016 USCS Rookie of the Year Danny Sams III of Englewood, FL took the eighth spot, and Joey Schmidt of Ellisville MS was ninth. Aubrey Black of Lookout Mountain, GA started 20th and rounded out the top ten to earn the Wilwood Disc Brakes Hard Charger of the Race Award.

In preliminary action, Turpen won the six-lap Hoosier Tire Speed Dash, and the three eight lap heat races were won by Mallett in the Engler Machine and Tool first heat, Riggins in the Brown and Miller Racing Solutions second heat, and Hagar in the Schoenfeld Headers third heat.

Hagar led the first lap followed by Mallett, Matt Linder of Hoschton, GA, Turpen and Gray. Bob Auld of Largo, FL brought out the first of four caution flags on lap six with a spin in turn four. When the field went back to green flag action, Hagar pulled away from Mallett, while Gray went to the inside to challenge his teammate Turpen for the fourth spot.

Gray was able drive underneath Turpen coming off the fourth turn on lap seven. By lap ten, Hagar began to encounter the cars on the tail of the lead lap with a half-straightaway lead on Mallett. The lead was erased on lap 11 when Don Warren of Clarksville, TN spun in turn two to light up the caution bulb.

The top ten for the restart at the one-third mark of the race had Hagar in the lead followed by Mallett, Linder, Gray, Turpen, Sams, McElhannon, Joe Larkin of Suwanee, GA, Schmidt, and Jake McLain of Matthews, NC. When the field went back to green flag action, Taylor stepped to the outside and passed Sams for sixth.

Turpen led a three-car battle for fifth with Taylor, Sams and McElhannon. McLain lost his right side header in turn two on lap 14 to bring out the caution flag, but not before it was run over by Jeff Oliver of Pendergrass, GA. Both cars were done for the evening. Hagar led Mallett, Linder, Gray, Turpen, Taylor, McElhannon, Sams, Larkin, and Schmidt down for the restart.

The battle for the fifth spot resumed among Turpen, Taylor, McElhannon and Sams. McElhannon was able to drive under Taylor for the sixth spot coming off the fourth turn on lap 15. The final caution flag came out on lap 17 when Linder stalled on the front straightaway while running third, and he was out for the evening.

That reshuffled the top ten as Hagar led Mallett, Gray, Turpen, Taylor, McElhannon, Riggins, Larkin, Sams, and Schmidt down for the restart. McElhannon got by Taylor on the restart, while Hagar pulled away from Mallett, and Gray challenged him for the second spot.

Hagar got into lapped traffic on lap 21 with almost a full straightaway lead on Mallett. Gray was able to get by Mallett for second on lap 22. Gray had the fastest car on the track in the final eight laps of the race, but he couldn’t catch Hagar to challenge for the lead.

In RockAuto.com USCS 600 Mini Sprint action, Bobby Zaiontz of Columbus, MS drove to a wire-to-wire win in the 15-lap main event. Pulling double-duty on Friday night, Brandon Taylor of Cumming, GA took the second spot, and Conner Morrell of Palmetto, FL finished third. Gregg Jones of Navarre, FL was fourth and fifth went to Tommy Thompson of Ten Mile, TN.

Jim Kradel of Navarre, FL finished sixth, and Jim McNulty of Navarre, FL took the seventh spot. A.J. Parrish of Jacksonville, FL started tenth and finished eighth to earn the Wilwood Disc Brakes Hard Charger Award. Ninth went to Alex Lyles of Arlington, TN, and Aubrey Black II of Trenton, GA rounded out the top ten.

In preliminary action, Jones won the five-lap Hoosier Tire Speed Dash, and the eight-lap Engler Machine and Tool Heat Race was won by Taylor, which earned him the K&N Filters Pole Award for the 15-lap A-Main.

Zaiontz took the lead at the start of the race from his outside front row starting spot followed by Taylor, Jones, Morrell, and McNulty. On lap two, Morrell drove under Jones in turn two to claim the third spot. The only caution flag of the race came out on lap three when Lyles spun in turn two.

The restart saw Zaiontz leading Taylor, Morrell, Jones and McNulty. Kradel was able to get by McNulty for the fifth spot on the restart. Thompson then got up on the wheel, driving by Kradel and into the top five on lap six. Zaiontz then went on unchallenged to the checkered flag.

USCS OUTLAW SPRINT CAR RACING HEADLINES SPRINT CAR MANIA VII RACING ACTION AT BOYD’S SPEEDWAY on FRIDAY NIGHT (August 18th)

Atlanta, GA – August 15th, 2017 - Wild and exciting winged outlaw sprint car racing will headline the USCS “Sprint Car Mania” VII racing program at historic Boyd’s Speedway on Friday, August 18th at 7:00 p.m.. The United Sprint Car Series "Outlaw Thunder" Tour presented by K&N Filters (www.uscsracing.com) will roar into the fast 3/8-mile Georgia red-clay oval for their forty-first event on the 21st Anniversary USCS National Championship schedule.

This is the one and only USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour winged sprint car event scheduled during the 2017 season at Boyd’s Speedway. This race is a twin-region showdown for the series and will award National Championship points as well as points in the USCS Mid-South and Southern Thunder regional series standings. The USCS Mid-South region normally contests race in Arkansas, Mississippi, Missouri and Western Tennessee. The USCS Southern Thunder regional series consists of races in Alabama, Georgia, Florida, both Carolinas and Eastern Tennessee.

The special two region challenge event is expected to bring top winged Outlaw sprint car drivers from at least seven states to the track seeking a stop in the www.rockauto.com USCS Victory Lane at the historic track. The exotic fire breathing, alcohol burning, 700 horsepower open wheel cars weight just 1,300 pounds, and are pound for pound the World’s most powerful short track race cars. The cars will literally fly around the track surface at speeds over 120 M.P.H. It is not uncommon to see USCS sprint cars popping "wheelies" or doing wheel stands because of the brute force of their engines and their huge 16-inch wide Hoosier rear racing tires.

Friday night's USCS winged sprint car action will feature a full program of racing in the winged sprint cars that includes test and tune hot laps followed by the evening's first sprint car race, the Hoosier Speed Dash that showcases the top six cars from the previous USCS main event in an edge-of-your-seat six-car shootout. Next up will be qualifying heat races and a Last Chance/B-Main race if necessary. The evening’s grand finale will be the 30-lap “Sprint Car Mania” VII USCS A-main event.

The popular www.rockauto.com USCS 600 Sprint Car Series winged Mini Sprints will join the USCS winged outlaw sprint cars on the action-packed racing program, creating an exciting open-wheeled winged race car double-header special event for the race fans. Several of the Boyd’s Speedway weekly racing divisions will join the two traveling series for a full night of family entertainment. Those divisions include the speedway’s Limited Late Model, Sportsman, Hobby and Street Stock racing divisions. There will be a full program of racing action in every division.

Two twenty-four-year old drivers lead a strong contingent of winged sprint drivers into the event. The first in the Nation’s top ranked female sprint racer Morgan Turpen from Cordova, Tennessee who is the defending and two-time USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour National Champion. Turpen who was the 2015 and 2016 Champion, leads the series drivers in victories this season with nine so far in 2017. She currently leads the USCS Mid-South regional series point standings and is in third place in the current National point standings. She also leads USCS Deep South regional standings as well.

The second twenty-four year-old young gun is Jordon Mallett from Greenbrier, Arkansas who currently leads the USCS National point standings. Mallett also leads the USCS Southern Thunder regional series point standings as well. He is the second most successful USCS driver in reaching victory lane during the 2017 season with five main event wins so far.

Eleven- time and defending USCS National Champion Terry Gray from Bartlett, Tennessee, who is Turpen’s team-mate, also tops the entry list for the Boyd’s Speedway event. He is a scant few points behind Mallett in second place in the National point standings. The two drivers have swapped the lead in those standings several times during the season. He is among the top twenty-five drivers in the Nation in wins over the past 5 years. Gray has 90 career USCS wins.

Also entered is 2013 USCS National Champion, Derek Hagar from Marion, Arkansas. Hagar is a threat to win each and every night and is the leading USCS feature winner over the last five seasons.

Black is expected to do double duty in the Outlaw sprint car and mini sprint divisions. His son Aubrey Black II is also entered in the www.rockauto.com USCS 600 Sprint Car Series division for winged mini sprints and hails from Chattanooga, Tennessee.

A past USCS Southern Thunder Tour Rookie of the Year, Lee Moore from Tuscaloosa, Alabama rounded out the top five.

The 2014 USCS Rookie of the Year, Brandon McLain from Indian Trail, North Carolina chased the top-five home in sixth place followed by Joey Schmidt from Ellisville, Mississippi in seventh place. Joe Larkin, a USCS regular and veteran sprint car racer from Suwannee, Georgia finished in eighth place.

JORDON MALLETT CHARGES TO FIRST CAREER USCS WIN AT NEEDMORE SPEEDWAY

NORMAN PARK, GA (May 20, 2017) – Jordan Mallett of Greenbrier, AR made his longest tow of any other of his competitors this weekend payoff on Saturday night, as he drove to his first United Sprint Car Series Outlaw Thunder Tour Presented By K&N Filters win of the 2017 season at Needmore Speedway. Mallett who was the 2011 USCS Rookie of the Year and the 2016 NSL 360 National Champion has attended every 2017 UCS Outlaw Thunder Tour event said in post-race comments that” I am glad to finally get the monkey off my back by winning this one tonight” after a string of solid performances.

Mallett, who came into the event as the USCS Southern Thunder regional series points leader, took the lead at the drop of the green flag from his outside front row starting spot to open up as much as a full straightaway lead. Two restarts after red flag periods didn’t phase Mallett, as even a four-lap dash to the finish showed him with a half straightaway margin of victory. Mallett opened the night with the win in the six-lap Hoosier Tire USCS Speed Dash.

The 11-time USCS National Champion Terry Gray of Bartlett, TN finished second after winning the eight-lap Butlerbuilt Third Heat Race earlier in the evening. The defending and two-time USCS National Champion Morgan Turpen took the third spot, as her winning streak came to an end on Saturday night after five straight wins.

The K&N Filters Pole Award recipient Brian Thomas of Pendergrass, GA was fourth, and Brown and Miller Racing Solutions eight-lap Second Heat Race winner Danny Martin Jr. of Sarasota, FL drove to a fifth-place finish. Shawn Murray of Jacksonville, FL finished sixth and Terry Witherspoon of Jacksonville, FL took the seventh spot.

Lance Moss of Cherryville, NC came back from being burned in two separate incidents on Friday night to drive to an eighth-place finish, and a win in the eight-lap Engler Machine and Tool First Heat Race. Tanner Witherspoon of Jacksonville, FL took the ninth spot, and Rookie of the Year points leader Scott Hunter of Concord, NC rounded out the top ten.

Danny Sams III of Englewood, FL started 21st and finished 13th to earn the Wilwood Disc Brakes Hard Charger of the Race Award, and in other preliminary action, Joey Schmidt of Ellisville, MS won the second six-lap Dash For Cash Sponsored By Tom Selhorst.

Mallett took command of the race at the drop of the green flag, but that quickly gave way to the red light for a three-car tangle in turn two that saw the car of Darren Orth of Jacksonville, FL get on its side. All drivers were O.K. when the dust settled. Mallett led Thomas, Brandon McLain of Indian Trail, NC, Gray and Moss back to the green flag for the restart.

While Mallett pulled away from the field, Gray moved up to third on the restart, and Turpen passed Moss for fifth on lap three. Turpen was on a mission trying to win her sixth-straight race of the 2017 season, as she got by McLain for fourth on lap four, bringing Moss with her up into the fifth spot.

Gray began to reel in Thomas to battle for second, and took the position on lap 12. By the halfway point in the race, Mallett was in heavy lapped traffic with a full straightaway lead over Gray, Thomas, Turpen, and Terry Witherspoon.

Mallett clicked off the laps running the high side of the track, but his big lead was erased on lap 26 when the red flag came out after Brandon Grubaugh of Ocala, FL flipped in turn four. Grubaugh was uninjured. There was plenty of action on the four-lap dash to the checkered flag, as Turpen got by Thomas for third, and Martin drove around the outside groove to go from eighth to fifth.

Jones started the evening where he left off on Friday night, in Victory Lane after winning the six-lap USCS 600 Hoosier Speed Dash, and returned to that piece of real estate to end the evening after a wire-to-wire win in the 20-lap main event, his second in as many nights.

TURPEN MAKES IT FIVE USCS WINS IN-A-ROW AT NEEDMORE SPEEDWAY

NORMAN PARK, GA (May 19, 2017) – The Queen of the Wings continues her flight of victories, as the defending and two-time United Sprint Car Series National Champion Morgan Turpin of Cordova, TN drove to her fifth straight USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour presented by KN Filters winged sprint car win for the 2017 season on Friday night at Needmore Speedway.

The school teacher who taught 10th Grade English during the school year, took a driver that is young enough to be one of her students to school in lapped traffic to take the lead. Danny Sams III of Englewood, FL, the 14-year-old 2016 USCS Rookie of the Year, led the first 17 laps of the 25-lap race, before losing the lead to Turpen.

Sams had to settle for second and third place and the K&N Filters Podium Award went to 11-time USCS National Champion and Turpen’s teammate Terry Gray of Bartlett, TN. Danny Martin Jr. of Sarasota, FL cadme back from a lap three spin to finish fourth and fifth went to USCS Southern Thunder Tour regional series point’s leaer Jordon Mallett of Greenbrier, AR.

Shawn Murray of Jacksonville, FL finished sixth, and Brandon McLain of Indian Trail, NC was seventh. Scott Hunter of Concord, NC drove to an eighth-place finish, with Terry Witherspoon of Jacksonville, FL taking the ninth spot, and Matt Kurtz of Jacksonville, FL rounding out the top ten.

In preliminary action, Gray won the six-lap Hoosier Tire Speed Dash and the winners of the three eight lap Heat Races were Martin in the Engler Machine and Tool First Heat, Sams in the Brown and Miller Racing Solutions Second Heat, and Turpen in the Butlerbuilt Third Heat.

At the drop of the green flag to start the 25-lap A-Main race, the K&N Filters Pole Award recipient Danny Sams III took the lead into turn one followed by Turpen, Gray, Brandon Taylor of Cumming, GA and Murray. Lance Moss of Cherryville , NC stalled on the front stretch and Martin spun in turn four on lap three to bring out the caution flag.

Both drivers would return to action, and after starting the race in the 23rd spot, Moss would finish the race in 12th to earn the Wilwood Disc Brakes Hard Charger of the Race Award. Joey Schmidt of Ellisville, MS spun on the restart to light up the caution bulb for the second time.

Sams continued to lead when the field went back to green flag action, and Murray passed Taylor for the fourth spot on lap five. Sams was approaching the cars on the tail of the lead lap by lap six, and Turpen began to close the gap to set up a battle for the lead.

Just when Sams had to start making some big decisions as to where to go around lapped cars, the caution came out and the lapped cars went away. Schmidt made hard contact with the front straightway wall at the exit of the fourth turn to bring out the third and final caution flag of the race on the eighth lap.

While Schmidt was uninjured, his damaged race car was done for the night. Sams lined up for the restart with Turpen, Gray, Murray, Taylor, Mallett, McLain, Witherspoon, Jake McLain of Matthews, NC and Hunter lined up behind him in the top ten. Martin had come from the back of the pack up to 11th in just six laps.

Mallett got by Taylor on the restart to move up to the top five and Martin dusted off the outside groove to drive up to the eighth position by the tenth lap. Sams continued to lead Turpen, but by lap 12, lapped traffic loomed ahead.

Sams put a lapped car between himself and Turpen on lap 15, but Turpen worked around the lapped car and zeroed in on the leader. Turpen was right on Sams rear nerf bar on lap 16, and as the leaders entered turn one on lap 17, Sams got pinned behind a lap car, as Turpen filled in his only passing zone on the inside.

Turpen took the lead in turn two, and never looked back. Martin settled into the fourth spot on lap 19 and battled with Gray for the third position in the final six laps of the race. Gray was able to hang on for the show position at the checkered flag.

In RockAuto.com USCS 600 Mini Sprint action, Gregg Jones of Navarre, FL took the lead on lap two, and pulled away to take the win in the 20-lap A-Main race. Robby Hoffman of Lithia, FL finished second, and third went to John Craddock of Orlando, FL. Paige Moss of Deland, FL took the fourth spot and Conner Morrell of Palmetto, FL was fifth.

Bobby Zaiontz of Columbus, MS finished sixth and Trynt Lloyd of Jacksonville, FL drove to a seventh-place finish. Dirk Miller of Sanford, FL took the eighth spot, Zach Gorski of Jacksonville, FL was ninth, and David Hall of Casselberry, FL rounded out the top ten.

In preliminary action, Jones won the six-lap Hoosier Tire Seed Dash, while Miller won the Engler Machine and Tool First Eight-Lap Heat Race, and Hoffman won the Brown and Miller Racing Solutions Second Eight-Lap Heat Race.

TURPEN TAKES FOURTH STRAIGHT USCS WIN AT SMOKY MOUNTAIN SPEEDWAY

MARYVILLE, TN - April 29, 2017 - The defending and two-time United Sprint Car Series National Champion Morgan Turpen of Cordova, TN showed East Tennessee race fans why she’s earned the title of “Queen of the Wings” as she posted a wire-to-wire win on Saturday night at Smoky Mountain Speedway. It was the fourth straight USCS win for Turpen and her second victory in as many as she collected the $2500 top prize at Smoky Mountain Speedway.

Turpen also picked up the win on Friday night at I-75 Raceway in Sweetwater, FL for the USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour presented by K&N Filters. In both races, the 2013 USCS National Champion Derek Hagar of Marion, AR made late race charges, but came up short each time. For the second straight night, Hagar had to settle for second on Saturday night.

Matt Covington of Glenpool, OK brought his winged Outlaw Sprint Car from the 11th starting spot to finish third and earn the Wilwood Disc Brakes Hard Charger of the Race Award. K&N Filters Pole Award Winner and 2011 USCS Rookie of the Year, Jordan Mallett of Greenbrier, AR was fourth, and former USCS Champion Marshall Skinner of Marion, AR took the fifth spot.

Young gun Howard Moore of Memphis, TN led the next group with a sixth-place finish, and rookie contender Joey Schmidt of Ellisville, MS finished seventh. The 11-time USCS National Champion Terry Gray of Bartlett, TN took the eighth spot, and Lance Moss of Cherryville, NC was ninth. Zach Daum from Pocahontas, IL rounded out the top ten.

In preliminary action, Daum won the six-lap Hoosier Tire Speed Dash. Skinner won the eight-lap Engler Machine and Tool First Heat Race, and Moss won the Brown and Miller Racing Solutions Second eight-lap Heat Race.

Turpen took the lead from her outside front row starting spot at the drop of the green flag to start the race followed by Mallett, Moore, Hagar, and Skinner. The only caution flag of the race came out on lap two when Tony Agin of Fort Myers, FL and Curt Terrell of Bartlett, TN tangled in turn two. They also collected the car of Aubrey Black of Trenton, GA.

Hagar got around Moore on the restart to move up to the third spot on the restart and while he chased down Mallett in the second spot, Turpen had pulled out to a half straightaway lead by the completion of the fifth lap. Turpen reached the cars on the tail of the lead lap by the ninth circuit, and Hagar got by Mallett for second also on the ninth lap.

Hagar just couldn’t seem to gain any ground on the leader, as Turpen held a full straightaway lead on the second-place machine. With ten laps to go, Turpen was in heavy lapped traffic with Hagar in second, Mallett in third, Skinner in fourth, Moore in fifth, and Covington had climbed up to the sixth spot running the very top of the race track.

In the closing laps of the race, Hagar also put his racer on the top shelf, and the momentum began to get him closer to Turpen. Turpen was up to the challenge, sticking to the bottom to middle of the track, and take the checkered flag with just a little over a full second margin of victory over Hagar.

In www.RockAuto.com USCS 600 Mini Sprint action on Saturday night at Smoky Mountain Speedway, Bobby Zaiontz of Columbus, MS drove to his second straight win in the 15-lap main event. Zaiontz started off the weekend with a win on Saturday night at I-75 Raceway. On Saturday night, Zaiontz was trailed to the checkered flag by 13-year-old 2016 series Rookie of the Year, Conner Morrell of Palmetto, FL.

Tommy Thompson of Ten Mile, TN took the third spot, and fourth went to Jim McNulty of Navarre, FL. Gregg Jones of Navarre, FL rounded out the top five. In preliminary action, Brandon Taylor of Cumming, GA won the Hoosier Tire Speed Dash, and the Engler Machine and Tool Heat Race was won by Jones.

The next event on the 2017 USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour presented by K&N Filters will be the USCS “Saturday of Speed” on Saturday night, May 6 at Lavonia Speedway in Lavonia, GA.

TURPEN MAKES IT THREE-IN-A-ROW FOR USCS WINS AT I-75 RACEWAY

SWEETWATER, TN (April 28, 2017) – While the defending and two-time United Sprint Car Series presented by K&N Filters National Champion Morgan Turpen resides in the West Tennessee town of Cordova, she has found an East Tennessee home on the 3/8-mile clay oval at I-75 Raceway where she posted her third straight series win on Friday night.

Turpen charged from the sixth starting spot to take the lead on lap 18 from her teammate, 11-time USCS National Champion Terry Gray of Bartlett, TN, and then held off a late race charge from Derek Hagar of Marion, AR to take her third straight USCS win this season in the 30-lap A-Main race.

Hagar finished second and Gray hung on for the third spot. Zach Daum of Pocahontas, IL rallied from the tenth starting spot to take the fourth spot, and Matt Covington of Glenpool, OK was fifth. Jordan Mallett of Greenbrier, AR drove to a sixth-place finish, and seventh went to Danny Sams III of Englewood, FL.

Howard Moore of Memphis, TN took the eighth spot, and Bob Auld of Largo, FL started 16th and finished ninth to earn the Wilwood Disc Brakes Hard Charger of the Race Award. Joe Larkin of Suwanee, GA rounded out the top ten.

In preliminary action, Gray won the six-lap Hoosier Tire Speed Dash, Covington won the eight-lap Engler Machine and Tool First Heat Race, and Mallett won the Brown and Miller Racing Solutions second eight-lap heat race. It was in the second heat race that Turpen served notice to the rest of the field she had a fast race car, as in eight laps, she charged from the eighth and last starting spot to finish second.

Turpen scored the most passing points among the 17 entrants, but Covington drew a six in the K&N Filters Pole Draw to put Turpen on the outside of the third row to start the main event, and place Curt Terrell of Bartlett, TN on the K&N Filters Pole Position to start the 30-lap A-Main.

It was an all Bartlett, TN front row, as Gray took the lead at the drop of the green flag followed by Terrell, Mallett, Hagar and Turpen. The first of eight caution flags came out on lap two when Joey Schmidt of Ellisville, MS spun in turn four. On the restart, Hagar got by Mallett to take over the third spot, but Schmidt spun in turn three to bring out caution number two on lap three.

When the field went back to green flag action, Covington dusted off the outside groove, and passed Turpen and Mallett to move up to the fourth spot on lap four. Turpen, who is a school teacher during the week, made some good notes in her mind about that outside groove. Brian Thomas of Pendergrass, GA spun in turn four on lap six to light up the yellow bulb for the third time.

The next green flag restart saw Turpen go to the outside and pass Mallett for the fifth spot on lap seven. Meanwhile up front, Gray had opened up a half straightaway lead on Terrell, who was busy trying to hold off Hagar, who finally got around Terrell for the position on lap eight. Gray was starting to get into heavy lapped traffic by lap ten, and Hagar was closing fast.

Auld took the scenic route off the outside of the fourth turn on lap 12. He kept the fire lit on his machine, but was too slow getting back on the track, and the caution flag came out for the fourth time. Gray led Hagar, Terrell, Covington and Turpen down for the restart. Schmidt got ticketed for his third caution flag on lap 15 when spun, and this time, he was done for the night.

Turpen began the second half of the race as a young lady on a mission. She definitely was an I-75 Raceway fan favorite, and she brought them to their feet when she stepped to the outside groove on the restart. Turpen passed Mallet and Terrell to take over the third spot, and then drove around the outside of Hagar on lap 16 to take over second.

It only took Turpen two more laps to catch her teammate and mentor Gray, and she stayed on the high side of the track to take the lead from the 11-time USCS Champ coming off the second turn on lap 18. Turpen then began to pull away and open up a half straightaway lead over Gray and Hagar, who were now battling each other for the second spot.

The field was slowed by caution for the fifth time on lap 20 when Lance Moss of Cherryville, NC spun to the infield. Turpen led Gray, Hagar, Covington, Daum, Terrell, Mallett, Sams, Larkin, and Moore down for the restart. Turpen was quick to pull out to a five car-length advantage, as Hagar went to the outside to pass Gray for second on lap 21.

Hagar could gain feet on Turpen, but with less than ten laps to go, he needed yards. Hagar got the break he needed on lap 26 when Terrell brought out the caution flag with a spin in turn four. That put Hagar on Turpen’s rear nerf bar for the restart, but Turpen was up to the challenge and pulled away.

The two laps to go signal gave way to the caution flag on lap 28 when Thomas, Jeff Willingham of Ripley, MS and Bob Agin of Fort Myers, FL tangled in turn three. Now it was down to a green, white, checkered finish. Turpen pulled away one more time, as Hagar had nothing to challenge the “Queen of the Wings” for the win.

In USCS RockAuto.com 600 Mini Sprint action, it was the Bobby Zaiontz Show, as the Columbus, MS driver got out the broom and swept the program for the four-bangers. Zaiontz had a perfect night as he started the evening by winning the four-lap Hoosier Tire Speed Dash, then he won the eight-lap Engler Machine and Tool Heat Race.

Zaiontz then drew a zero to win the K&N Filters Pole Award. He took the lead at the drop of the green flag and never looked back to win the 15-lap A-Main race. Gregg Jones of Navarre, FL finished second and Conner Morrell celebrated his 13th Birthday with a third-place showing. Brandon Taylor of Cumming, GA was fourth and Jim McNulty of Navarre, FL rounded out the top five.

The USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour presented by K&N Filters and the USCS RockAuto.com 600 Mini Sprints will head up the road for a second East Tennessee event on Saturday night at Smoky Mountain Speedway in Maryville, TN.

Atlanta, GA - April 12, 2017 - The USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour presented by K&N Filters and the MSCA 305 winged sprint car divisions headline a high-speed 2017 racing season-opener at Lexington 104 Speedway near Lexington, Tennessee on Saturday, April 22nd.

Robbie Stillwaggon collects 2nd USCS sprint win of 2017 at Lancaster Speedway in USCS “Thunder in Carolina” Round #2 on Saturday

Lancaster, SC – April 8, 2017 – Burlington, New Jersey’s Robbie Stillwaggon raced into the USCS www.RockAuto.com Victory Lane again on Saturday night in the United Sprint Car Series Outlaw Thunder Tour presented by K&N Filters 25-lap main event at Lancaster Speedway in the USCS “Thunder in Carolina” Round #2. The win was Stillwaggon’s career-third win in USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour competition.

Stillwaggon’s good fortunes continued for the second straight night in USCS competitions Two things happened on lap twenty of the 25-lap contest around the high-speed half-mile in Lancaster, South Carolina that helped put Stillwaggon in the www.RockAuto.com USCS Victory Lane at the conclusion.

First, Stillwaggon was able to capitalize on veteran Ohio sprint car driver Danny Smith’s mechanical misfortunes on lap twenty in the main event. On that lap (20) Danny Smith coasted to the pits with a broken U-Joint after leading laps five through twenty.

On that same lap, Johnny Bridges from Cherryville, North Carolina who was running in the sixth position in the high-speed duel at the time, left the park in turn three and landed down the banking after entering the turn at approximately 140 miles per hour and having something break in his steering. Very fortunately, Bridges escaped the scary incident unharmed.

An extended red flag period and open red-flag condition occurred for the sprint car teams. On the restart Stillwaggon was on the point after being in the runner-up spot trying to run down the sailing Smith who had earlier won the Engler Machine and Tool First Heat race then having his rear-end lock-up at the scales.

After the restart Stillwaggon charged away from the challengers and raced under the checkered flag in first place ahead of runner-up and the 2016 winner at Lancaster Speedway in the event Trey Starks from Puyallup Washington. On the night before Starks had crashed hard while leading the “Thunder in Carolina “ Round #1 event at Carolina Speedway that Stillwaggon went on to win as well. Starks’ crew had to make huge repairs over night for the Washington state hot-shoe to even return for the night’s event at Lancaster Speedway.

Jordon Mallett from Greenbrier, Arkansas held off hard-charging Eric Riggins, Jr. from Charlotte, North Carolina to finish in the K&N Filters Podium Award (third place). Riggins started in the ninth position and finished fourth in a borrowed ride. Riggins, who is a two-time USCS winner and fan favorite in USCS competition at Lancaster Speedway, crashed hard in his own ride in hot laps. Fellow competitor Terry Witherspoon then loaned Riggins a spare car he had in his trailer for the event. Brandon McLain from Indian Trail, North Carolina, who was the 2014 USCS Rookie of the Year finished in fifth place. McLain who earlier won the Brown and Miller racing Solutions Second Heat Race started from the K&N Filters Pole Position and led the first four laps of the main event.

Terry Witherspoon from Jacksonville, Florida led the next group with a sixth-place finish. Mitch Brown from Brantford, Ontario, Canada charged from a ten place start to finish seventh. Rookie of the Year contender Scott Hunter from Concord, North Carolina finished in eighth place followed by fifteen-year-old, 2016 USCS Rookie of the Year Danny Sams III from Englewood, Florida in ninth-place finish. Lance Moss from Cherryville, North Carolina rounded out the top ten.

Heat race wins went to National Sprint Car Hall of Fame 2015 inductee Danny Smith in the Engler Machin and Tool First Heat and to Brandon McLain in the Brown and Miller Racing Solutions Second Heat. The K&N Filters Pole Award and pole position was garnered by McLain. Trey Starks was the high point earner in the heat race competition. Veteran sprint car racer, Terry Gray had to start seventeenth after a flat tire during his heat race passed the most cars in the main event to earned/collect the Wilwood Disc Brakes Hard Charger Award. Tony Agin from Ft. Myers, Florida, who blew an engine during the heat race, was awarded the Piedmont

USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour winged sprint cars headline USCS Spring Speed Xplosion event at Bubba Raceway Park on Friday March 31st and Saturday April 1st,

 
Atlanta, GA – March 25, 2017 - The Fayetteville, Georgia based United Sprint Car Series Outlaw Thunder Tour presented by K&N Filters winged sprint cars make their spring 2017 visit to Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, Florida on Friday March 31st and Saturday April 1st. The event is entitled the USCS Spring Speed Xplosion. The series’ 130 mile-per-hour USCS winged Outlaw type sprint cars headline the two-day weekend of racing action at the semi-banked three-eighths mile D-shaped oval track. The racing card also includes the 100 mile per hour www.rockauto.com USCS 600 Sprint Car Series winged mini sprints and Florida Mini Sprint Action series on both nights in a head to head duel. Saturday’s racing card will add two popular Bubba Raceway Park divisions when the V-8 Thunder Stock and Florida T. Q. Late Models join the weekend’s action.
 
The United Sprint Car Series portion of the event will give a driver who can sweep the weekend’s elements an opportunity to pick up $3500 in cash prize winnings plus contingency awards including Friday night’s 20-lap preliminary USCS sprint car main event win and by arriving first in the www.rockauto.com USCS Victory Lane. Saturday night’s 30-lap Championship final as well.
 
The event is expected to draw winged sprint car drivers from at least seven states including several of the series 2016 feature winners. Heading the entry list is 2015 and 2016 USCS National Champion, Morgan Turpen from Cordova, Tennessee who is also the current National points leader.
 
Morgan Turpen was a five-time USCS main event winner in 2016. The 23-year-old Turpen struck first in the series 2017 racing season at Hattiesburg Speedway in Mississippi with a trip to the www.rockauto.com USCS Victory Lane as the victor in the season opener. She bested last season’s USCS Rookie of the Year, teenager Danny Sams III from Englewood, Florida and three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion Tony Stewart from Columbus, Indiana in the runner-up and third positions at the top of a talented 25 car field.
 
Turpen is an eleven-time USCS feature winner and the top ranked female sprint car driver in the country.

An impressive list of top drivers from the Southeastern United States are entered including 2016 USCS Florida State Champion Danny Martin, Jr. from Sarasota, Florida. Martin stormed to a win on both nights of that USCS stop at Bubba Raceway Park to sweep the event. Martin also won five times in USCS competition in 2016 while running a limited schedule.
 
Another challenge for all these drivers will be to beat track favorite 15-year-old Tyler Clem from Tampa, Florida who won in three different type race cars at the track in 2016. (Sprint Car, Late Model and Modified). Clem, at age fourteen, finished in the runner-up spot behind Martin in last September’s Florida State Championship Race.
 
Other expected USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour entries for the USCS Spring Speed Xplosion include: The 2015 USCS Rookie of the Year, Nick Snyder from Marco Island, Florida and 2016 USCS Rookie of the Year, 15-year-old Danny Sams III from Englewood, Florida are both entered as well.

HAGAR RULES USCS SPRINTS AT MAGNOLIA MOTOR SPEEDWAY

COLUMBUS, MS - March 4, 2017 - Derek Hagar of Marion, AR topped a star-studded field of United Sprint Car Series presented by K&N Filters entrants on Saturday night to take the win in the 30-lap winged sprint car A-Main at Magnolia Motor Speedway. Hagar took the lead at the start of the race and was never challenged in a wire-to-wire victory on the “Black Ice” racing surface of the track known as the MAG. It was Hagar’s 44th trip to the www.rockauto.com USCS Victory Lane in a USCS career that goes back to his 2006 USCS Rookie of the Year season.
Behind Hagar, there were battles for position throughout the 25-car field. When all was “said and done”, 11-time USCS National Champion Terry Gray of Bartlett, TN finished second and 2015 Sprint Car Hall of Fame Inductee Danny Smith of Chillicothe, OH took the third spot.

The defending and two-time USCS National Champion Morgan Turpen was fourth after she opened the 2017 and 21st USCS season on Friday night at Hattiesburg Speedway in Hattiesburg, MS with a win. A pair of former USCS Champions took the next two spots with Tim Crawley of Benton, AR finishing fifth and Marshall Skinner of Marion, AR taking the sixth spot.

The 2016 USCS Rookie of the Year, 14-year-old Danny Sams III of Englewood, FL, took the seventh spot, and Andy McElhannon of Nesbit, MS was eighth. Rookie of the Year contender, Brandon Taylor of Cumming, GA finished ninth after starting eighteenth and running as high as fifth, and former Cajun Sprints Champion Shane Morgan of Biloxi, MS rounded out the Top 10. 2016 ASCS/Southern Outlaw Rookie of the Year, Joey Schmidt of Ellisville, MS, was the Wilwood Disc Brakes Hard Charger of the Race after starting 24th and finishing 14th.

In preliminary action, three-time NASCAR Champion and former Indy Car Champion Tony Stewart of Columbus, IN was in the house at The Mag and won the Hoosier Speed Dash as well as the third eight-lap Butlerbuilt Heat Race. Tim Crawley won the eight-lap Engler Machine and Tool First Heat Race and Derek Hagar won the eight-lap Brown and Miller Racing Solutions Second Heat Race.

After earning the K&N Filters Pole Award, Hagar took the lead at the start of the race, followed by Gray, Crawley, Stewart, and Smith. Crawley and Stewart passed Gray on lap three to move up to second and third respectively. Gray got around Stewart on lap seven to reclaim the third spot behind Hagar and Crawley.

Smith got around Stewart for the fourth position on lap nine, and on lap ten, Turpen knocked Stewart out of the top five on the tenth lap. Stewart began to fade from that point before retiring from the race on lap 21 and was credited with a 23rd-place finish.

On lap 13, Smith and Gray got around Crawley to move up to the second and third spots respectively. At the halfway point, Hagar held a 1.5 second lead over Smith in second with Gray, Crawley and Turpen rounding out the top five. Turpen got by Crawley on lap 18 to move up to the fourth position.

Gray moved up to the second spot on lap 22 by passing Smith, but by then, Hagar had opened a five second lead over the second-place driver. Veteran Terry Gray got up on the wheel in his effort to close in on Hagar over the final eight laps of the race. By lap 28, Gray had closed to within four seconds of Hagar.

Hagar’s lead was gone on lap 28 when the caution flag came out for Tony Again, who spun in turn one. Hagar led Gray, Smith, Turpen, Crawley, Skinner, Taylor, Sams, Morgan and McElhannon down for the green flag to begin the three-lap dash to the checkered flag.

Hagar was up to the challenge with clear race track in front of him, as Gray was unable to get close. Hagar took a 2.169 second margin of victory under the checkered flag. The next event on the 2017 United Sprint Car Series Outlaw Thunder Tour is on Saturday night, March 18 at Lexington 104 Speedway in Lexington, TN.

In support Division action on Saturday night at Magnolia Motor Speedway, Preston Seratt was the winner in the 20-lap K&N Filers USCS Outlaw Modified A-Main, and Dusty Young took the victory in the 20-lap www.RockAuto.com USCS 600 Mini Sprint A-Main.

During 2016 Walton saw USCS again make sprint car racing history when 23-year-old Morgan Turpen of Cordova, Tennessee repeated as the series National Champion. Morgan Turpen ten became the first woman to ever win the series’ National Championship twice and two-times-in-a-row. As a former sprint car racer for sixteen years Walton made many long trips from Atlanta to the Midwest. Walton founded the USCS to bring sprint car racing closer to his home. He competed in the series on a regular basis until 2001. At that time, he hung up his helmet and has since seen series have tremendous grow from 20-22 events per season to near 50 events each year.

Walton has been nominated for the National Sprit Car Hall of Fame “Promoter of the Year” award several times prior years, but was honored for the first time as the recipient of the award after a successful 2015 season.

“It really is an honor to be recognized again as a nominee for the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame Promoter of the Year Award,” Walton said upon learning of his nomination. “To be a part of the many people who work hard to keep sprint car racing in the fore-front and provide a place for competitors to compete in this exciting form of motorsports is always a pleasure and a privilege.”

“Open wheel racing in the Southeastern region of the country has been rare and in the past taken a back seat to stock car and late model racing, I’m proud that our two decades of work with the USCS have produced a product that draws some of the top crowds of the season at many of the venues where we promote and sanction events. And as far as our USCS sprint car drivers, I would always put them up against any 360 teams in the country on the race track – just bring them on!”

The 360 Promoter of the Year Award is voted on annually by the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame pollsters and honors the individual(s) representing a speedway, sanctioning body or racing series that has most impacted winged 360 cubic inch sprint car racing through their promotional efforts.

The USCS is gearing up for another banner season of competition in 2016 (Its 21st season) with a 50+ race schedule, that kicks off at Hattiesburg Speedway on Friday, March 3rd and moves over to Magnolia Motor Speedway on Saturday, March 4th.

Gray himself finished in the runner-up spot and finished a scant two points behind Turpen in the season-long title chase.

Additionally, Terry Gray captured the USCS Southern Thunder Tour regional series Championship while besting team-mate Morgan Turpen by just fifteen points in that 2016 title chase as well. Gray also finished in the third position in the talent-laden USCS Mid-South Thunder Tour regional series standings behind 2013 USCS National Champion Derek Hagar and past Champion Marshall Skinner both from Marion, Arkansas.

HAGAR AND MALLETT TAKES USCS WINS IN FLIP FLP 50 AT RIVERSIDE

WEST MEMPHIS, AR - November 12, 2016 - There was a lot of business to be taken care of in the United Sprint Car Series Outlaw Tour Presented by K&N Filters 2016 season finale with two main events making up the Flip Flop 50 and a National Championship to be decided on Saturday night at Riverside International Speedway.

The 2013 USCS National Champion, Derek Hagar of Marion, AR took the Flip and past USCS Rookie of the Year, Jordon Mallet of Greenbrier, AR won the Flop portions of the unique Flip Flop 50 twin-25 lap format of main events.. It appears that 2015 USCS National Champion Morgan Turpen of Cordova, TN won her second straight USCS National Championship after a hard fought battle during the entire 20th Anniversary Season for the series with her mentor and teammate, 11-time USCS National Champion Terry Gray of Bartlett, TN by only tw points. An audit of the points awarded at each event during the 2016 season will later in the week confirm the Championship before an official announcement is made.

Neither Turpen nor Gray had a great night of competition, but it was good enough for Turpen to appear to have doubled up as the series champion. Turpen, who won the 12-lap B-Main Race, finished 17th in the first 25-lap feature race and 22nd in the second feature race. Gray finished 14th in the first feature race, and took the 23rd spot in the nightcap.

Hagar led all but one lap in the first feature race to pick up his eighth USCS win of the 2016 season. Spencer Bayston of Lebanon, IN led one lap and took the second spot, while National Sprint Car Hall of Fame Inductee Sammy Swindell of Germantown, TN finished third. Tim Crawley of Benton, AR was fourth and fifth went to Andy McElhannon of Hernando, MS.

Brad Bowden of Hernando, MS finished sixth and Marshall Skinner of Marion, AR was seventh. Howard Moore of Memphis, TN started 18th and finished eighth to earn the Wilwood Disc Brakes Hard Charger of the Race Award. Joe B. Miller of Millersville, MO was ninth and Brandon Hanks of Burlison, TN rounded out the top ten of the first or Flip Race.

It was called the Flip Race because the starting line-up for the second 25-lap Flop Race would be totally inverted. That would put the last place finisher in the Flip Race, Jeff Willingham of Ripley, MS starting on the K&N Filters Pole Position, and Flip Race winner Hagar starting at the tail of the 24-car starting field for the Flop Race. If Hagar could charge through the field for the win, he would pick up a $1,000 bonus.

While Hagar led 24 of the 25 laps in the first race, the nightcap was an action-packed affair with wholesale position changes taking place throughout the field for the entire 25-lap distance. Mallet took the lead on lap 24 after early race leader and 2016 USCSS Rookie of the Year, 14-year old teenager Danny Sams III of Englewood, FL and one of the Masters of the Ditch, Swindell, tangled while battling for the win.

Ernie Ainsworth of Bartlett, TN finished second and third went to Cody Gardner of Benton, AR. Skinner had his second top ten finish with a fourth-place effort and Dustin Holman of Manquan, MO took the fifth spot. Hagar charged from the 23rd starting spot to finish sixth and earn the Wilwood Disc Brakes Hard Charger of the Race Award.

Crawley was another top ten double dipper with a seventh-place finish in the nightcap and Bayston was also a double top ten finisher with an eighth-place effort in the second feature race. Joe B. Miller made it a pair of ninth-place finishes at Riverside International Speedway, and Eddie Gallagher of Olive Branch, MS rounded out the top ten.

The only caution or red flag of the second feature was when Swindell slammed into Danny Sams III while he was exiting turn two coming to the white flag and caused Sams to flip into the fence and Swindell to suffer some damage. Sams car was too badly damaged , but, Swindell .

In Friday night preliminary action, Moore won the six lap Hoosier Speed Dash, and the winners of the four eight-lap heat racers were Swindell in the Engler Machine & Tool First Heat, Hagar in the Brown and Miller Racing Solutions Second Heat, Bayston in the Schoenfeld Headers Third Heat, and Crawley in the K&N Filters Fourth Heat. Hagar won the 12-lap Pole Scramble to earn the K&N Filters Pole Award for the first feature race.

TREY STARKS HAS PERFECT SCORE IN USCS SPRINTS ONEDIRT.com WORLD SHORT TRACK CHAMPIONSHIPS at CHARLOTTE

CHARLOTTE, NC – October 22, 2016 – Trey Starks of Puyallup, WA was Mr. Perfect in the OneDirt.com World Short Track Championships for the United Sprint Car Series Outlaw Thunder Tour presented by K&N Filters on both Friday and Saturday nights at The Dirt Track at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Starks capped off the clean sweep of the weekend on Saturday night with the win in the 25-lap Comp Cams sponsored sprint car main event by leading wire-to-wire. It was the fourth win of the season for Starks during the 2016 20th Anniversary USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour. In two nights of competition, Starks seemingly had none.

Starks started the Friday night action by setting fast time honors with a lap around the 4/10-mile clay oval in 14.748 seconds. After being inverted to the fourth position for the heat race start, he then led all eight laps to win the Engler Machine and Tool First Heat Race. That earned him the pole position for Saturday night’s K&N Filters USCS Pole Scramble. Once again, Starks went unchallenged, leading all 12 laps for the win and earning the K&N Filters Pole Award for the A-Main.

Dylan Westbrook of Scotland, ON Canada took the second spot in the main event and Dane Lorenc of Lancaster, NY finished third. Lance Moss of Cherryville, NC came home in the fourth spot and the defending USCS National Champion Morgan Turpen of Cordova, TN was fifth.

Kevin Roberts of Washington Court House, OH finished sixth and Michael Miller of Ocean Springs, MS was seventh. Jake McLain of Indian Trail, NC took the eighth spot. Brandon McLain of Indian Trail, NC started 22nd and finished ninth to earn the Wilwood Disc Brakes Hard Charger Award. Johnny Petrozelle of Lexington, NC rounded out the top ten.


In other Friday night preliminary action, the eight-lap Brown and Miller Racing Solutions Second Heat Race was won by 2015 USCS Rookie of the Year Nick Snyder of Marco Island, FL. The eight-lap Schoenfeld Headers Third Heat Race was won by Shawn Murray of Jacksonville, FL.

Starks took the lead at the start of the race that took three tries due to a false start and a stall by Eric Riggins Jr. of Charlotte, NC. Following Starks under the flagstand on lap one was Westbrook, 11-time USCS National Champion Terry Gray of Bartlett, TN, Moss and Glenn Styres of Oschwegen, ON, Canada.

Once the race got underway, it was stopped on lap four for debris. Starks remained the leader followed by Westbrook, Gray, Moss and Styres. The fourth caution flag of the race came out on lap six when Snyder stalled in turn two. On the restart, Styres dropped back to the eighth spot, as Roberts, Miller and Lorenc got by him for the fifth, six, and seventh spots respectively.

Miller passed Roberts for the fifth spot on lap seven, and then Lorenc took over the fifth spot on lap ten. Starks, Westbrook, Gray, Moss and Lorenc remained in the top five until lap 16 when Gray suddenly slowed on the race track and brought out the caution flag on lap 17 with a cut tire. The top five for the restart was Starks, Westbrook, Moss, Lorenc and Miller.

Turpen passed Miller to move up to the top five on lap 18, and Lorenc got by Moss for the third spot on lap 20. Starks breezed home during the last five laps of the race to take a 3.784 second margin of victory over Westbrook at the checkered flag.

Eleven-time USCS National sprint car Champion, Terry Gray gave up the third position in the race and the National points lead when he had to pit for the tire change on lap seventeen. Gray recovered to the thirteenth spot by the end of the race, but, that gave the chase for the National title lead back to his team-mate Morgan Turpen. The two have been in a see-saw battle since mid-season.

The next event will close out the 2016 20th Anniversary United Sprint Car Series Outlaw Thunder Tour presented by K&N Filters. The USCS winged outlaw sprint cars will visit Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, AR on Friday night, November 11, and on Saturday night, November 12 for the USCS Fall Nationals.

STARKS SETS FAST TIME, WINS HEAT FOR USCS CHARLOTTE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP RACE

CHARLOTTE, NC – October 21, 2016 – Trey Starks of Puyallup, WA showed in Friday night preliminary action that he is the man to beat in Saturday night’s United Sprint Car Series Outlaw Thunder Tour Presented by K&N Filters main event in the One Dirt.com Short Track World Championship Race at The Dirt Track At Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Starks set fast time with a lap around the 3/8-mile clay oval in 14.748 seconds, and then won the Engler Machine & Tool first eight-lap Heat Race. That earned Starks the pole position for the Pole Scramble Race that will be held on Saturday night prior to the main event to determine the first 12 starting spots for the Big Show.

Race fans in the Carolinas are very familiar with Starks and how he can be a force to be reckoned with. On October 1 of the 20th Anniversary USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour Presented by K&N Filters, Starks failed to report to the scales for the post-race weigh-in after winning his Heat Race at Cherokee Speedway in nearby Gaffney, SC.

That forced Starks to start 20th and last in the 30-lap main event. Starks passed them all in just 18 laps and then pulled away unchallenged for the win. Starks made a bold statement on lap one, as he went from 20th to 10th. Starks just kept moving forward through the field, as he was fifth by lap six, and fourth by lap 11, and third on lap 13.

The only thing that slowed him down was the caution flag that came out on lap 14. He took the lead four laps after the restart, and in the Cherokee Speedway Winner’s Circle, Starks said that was a tune-up race for Charlotte. Based on his Friday night performance at the One Dirt.com Short Track World Championship Race, it could be a long Saturday night for the competition.

Dylan Westbrook of Scotland, ON, Canada was the second quick qualifier, and will start on the outside of the front row for the Pole Scramble. Lane Loreno of Charlotte, NC was third quick in Qualifying and starts on the inside of row two of the Pole Scramble. Lance Moss of Cherryville, NC was fourth quick on Qualifying and starts fourth in the Pole Scramble.

Row three of the Pole Scramble will see the defending USCS National Champion Morgan Turpen of Cordova, TN on the inside, and Scott Hunter of Concord, NC to her right on the outside. The USCS National point leader, 11-time USCS National Champion Terry Gray of Bartlett, TN is on the inside of row four and Glenn Styres of Oschwegen, ON, Canada is on the outside.

Teammates Gray and Turpen are battling for the USCS National Championship with just a few points separating them going into the One Dirt.com Short Track World Championship Race. Row five of the Pole Scramble will see Brandon McLain of Indian Trail, NC on the inside with Nick Snyder of Marco Island, FL on the outside.

Shawn Murray of Jacksonville, FL starts on the inside of the sixth and final row of the Pole Scramble, and Michael Miller of Ocean Springs, MS will be on the outside. In other preliminary action, Snyder won the eight-lap Brown and Miller Racing Solutions second Heat Race, and Murray won the Schoenfeld Headers third eight-lap Heat Race.

CRAWLEY IS THE USCS KING OF THE HILL WITH SECOND CLAYHILL WIN OF 2016

ATWOOD, TN – October 15, 2016 – Tim Crawley of Benton, AR was crowned the United Sprint Car Series Outlaw Thunder Tour Presented by K&N Filters “King of the Hill” on Saturday night with a trip to the www.RockAuto.com Victory Lane victory in the USCS 25-lap main event at Clayhill Motorsports. It was the second win for the 2012 USCS National Champion during the 2016 20th Anniversary season at the West Tennessee clay oval.

For the first half of the race, Crawley was settled into the third spot behind early race leader Dale Howard of Byhalia, MS and Derek Hagar of Marion, AR. Hagar dropped out of the race on lap 16, and Crawley camped out behind Howard on the high side of the race track until lap 22 when he dove for the bottom groove.

Crawley raced Howard side-by-side down the front straightaway and into turn one. Crawley was able to take the lead coming off the second turn on lap 23, and then led the final two tours around the track to take the win to go with his Clayhill Motorsports win in May during Speedweeks.

“At first, it was kind of a single file groove around the top, so while I was riding behind Derek and Dale, I kept checking out the middle to bottom grooves to see if there was anything down there to race on,” Crawley said. “After Derek dropped out, I pulled the wing back, dove for the middle, got under Dale and it worked out.”

Howard was able to hang on for the second spot and third went to the defending USCS National Champion Morgan Turpen of Cordova, TN, who started eighth and earned the Wilwood Disc Brakes Hard Charger Award. Marshall Skinner of Marion, AR took the fourth spot, and 11-time USCS National Champion Terry Gray of Bartlett, TN was fifth.

Teammates Turpen and Gray continue their friendly, but hard fought battle for the 2016 USCS National Championship. Dustin Homan of Manquan, MO finished sixth and seventh went to Howard Moore of Memphis, TN. Brad Bowden of Hernando, MS took the eighth spot, and Danny Sams III of Englewood, FL was ninth. Jeff Willingham of Ripley, MS rounded out the top ten.

In preliminary action, the six-lap Hoosier Tire Speed Dash was won by Skinner. In eight-lap Heat Race action, the Engler Machine and Tool First Heat was won by Howard Moore, and Dale Howard won the Brown and Miller Racing Solutions Second Heat.

After earning the K&N Filters Pole Award, Howard took the lead at the drop of the green flag followed by Crawley, Hagar, Moore, and Gray. Hagar got by Crawley to take over the second spot on lap two, Gray passed Moore for the fourth spot on lap three. Skinner moved up to challenge Moore for the fifth spot on lap four, but Moore reclaimed the spot on lap five.

On lap 15, Hagar closed in on Howard to challenge for the lead, and pulled to the inside of the leader in turn four. Howard held on to the point through turns one and two on lap 16, but Hagar suddenly slowed off the pace going down the backstretch to bring out the only caution flag of the race.

Howard led Crawley, Gray, Moore, Skinner, Homan, and Turpen down for the restart, and several drivers got busy in the ten lap dash to the finish. Skinner passed Moore and Gray to move up to the third spot on lap 17.

Lap 18 saw Turpen passing Moore to move into the top five. Turpen wasn’t done yet, as she passed her teammate Gray for the fourth spot on lap 19, and then powered by Skinner for third on lap 21. While Crawley was putting his inside move on Howard to take the lead on lap 23, Skinner got back by Turpen to reclaim the third spot, only to see Turpen return the favor on the final lap.

The next event for the 20th Anniversary United Sprint Car Series Outlaw Thunder Tour Presented by K&N Filters will be the OneDirt.com World Short Track Championship Race at The Dirt Track at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Charlotte, NC on October 20-22.
