Schacht and Ebeling Split Twin 60s at Dominion in SCSCS Return to Racing

 

Thornburg, Virginia (May 2, 2021) – The Super Cup Stock Car Series stars knocked the dust off their cars for a successful season-opening Twin 60s at Dominion Raceway with two past winners at the 4/10-mile oval hoisting the trophies at night’s end.

 

Bob Schacht, a four-time Dominion race winner leading into the day, paced qualifying with a time of 16.059 seconds, a couple tenths off his track record from 2018.

 

With new series race director Eric Dobson giving the command to fire engines, JJ Pack led the opening seven circuits from the pole after a six-car redraw in his No. 61 David Lucash Racing Engines / IceBoxx Customs / JP Racing Pontiac Grand Prix.  However, it was Schacht from the third starting position that was accelerating toward the front and ultimately the lead.

 

The only yellow flag of the first 60-lap feature flew when contact occurred upon 2019 series champion Kevin Kromer approaching the slower car of Samatha Rohrbaugh.  Both cars went around and would have to restart at the rear of the field.

 

When the race resumed, Hickory, North Carolina’s Ben Ebeling chose the outside and powered to the top spot.  It was short-lived though, as his car picked up a tight condition and Schacht went by to fairly easily lead the remainder of the way.

 

“After 18 months since we were here last time it’s great to go racing again and have fun,” the driver of the No. 75 Engineered Components Co. / Bob Schacht Motorsports Chevrolet said.  “The car was really good and it was a good race.”

 

While Ebeling maintained second, Pack utilized lapped traffic to capitalize on Rookie of the Year contender Jason Kitzmiller and navigate around the No. 97 A.L.L. Construction / CR7 Motorsports Garage Chevrolet for third place.  Kitzmiller’s teammate and Rohrbaugh’s grandfather, Larry Berg, rounded out the top five in the No. 9 Chevrolet sponsored by Grant County Mulch.

 

The second race, taking place under the Thornburg, Virginia facility lights, was a similar story to the first but with a slightly different result.  2019 Rookie of the Year Lauren Butler started from the first position and fought in her attempt to lead her first lap in series competition.  It was outside front row starter Schacht though who once again was out front when the leaders crossed the start-finish line for the first time.

 

From there, the now five-time Dominion winner and seven-time SCSCS checkered flag recipient overall jumped out to an impressive margin with Pack advancing into the runner-up position.

 

Two yellows flew in this race, each due to Rohrbaugh losing control on opposite ends of the racetrack.  The No. 7 Grant County Mulch / In Loving Memory of Mark Huff / CR7 Motorsports Garage Chevrolet had developed issues with the front brakes much of the evening.  Being coached by local Late Model driver Sergio Peña, who coincidentally previously competed in the NASCAR East Series with the same car now driven by Brent Nelson to seventh and ninth place runs on this night, the younger sister of NASCAR Truck Series regular Codie Rohrbaugh still managed a pair of top 10 performances.

 

Before the cautions came out, it was evident that Ebeling seemed to be closing the gap upon passing Pack for second on two separate occasions.  The final 38 laps showcased what the two North Carolina residents could do as the remainder of the distance stayed under green flag conditions.

 

With 12 laps left, the No. 44 Startown Carpet & Floor Coverings / Swanny's Auto Sales / L & C Truck Repair / Battery Specialist of Hickory / RE Suspension / Williams Ebeling Enterprises, LLC Ford made its move as Schacht got loose coming out of turn four.

 

The race almost took a complete final turn in outcome as Bill Ashton’s No. 35 Bill’s Wood Stoves - Hopwood, PA / Budget Blinds of Altoona & State College / Ashton Racing Chevrolet backfired and gradually lost power, but the green flag remained out and Ebeling cruised to the victory.

 

“We made some changes from the first race and somebody actually helped me with some of those with some advice,” Ebeling noted, pointing at Schacht.  “I knew in order to beat him I was going to have to push him as hard as I could.  We just sat there, rode with him and pushed him, he bobbled a little bit, and I was able to be there when it happened.”

 

For a driver with such a storied racing career like Schacht, second is almost never the optimal result, but was somewhat acceptable in this instance.

 

“I think the racetrack pretty much stayed the same, but the right front tire for whatever reason with about 15 laps to go just started going away,” the past SCSCS champion indicated.  “Finally I got spooked, if you want to call it that, because of the wreck I had here in 2018 so I kind of backed off a little bit.  I couldn’t hold off Ben because he was running better times.  But losing to Ben isn’t a big deal to me because he races me clean and we have fun doing it.”

 

Finishing behind the two racers once again was Pack, who was not entirely satisfied with the results despite overcoming some mechanical-related adversity.

 

“I felt like we had a better car than two thirds,” the local favorite from Midland, Virginia and 2014 SCSCS champion commented.  “I’m not unhappy but I definitely feel like I could have given it more.  With the spark plug wire (shorting out in the first race), it actually made me have to drive the car a little harder so I had to use up the tires a little more than I wanted to.  Second (race) I thought right at the beginning it was fine and it was running great, but it just got tighter and tighter and tighter.  Just nothing I could do.”

 

Rounding out the top five in the second Twin 60 were Walnutport, Pennsylvania’s Kromer in a nice recovery from a scrape with the frontstretch wall in the first race and Butler claiming her first Dominion top five finish in her No. 53 Edlin Automotive / Night & Day Sealcoating / HG Creations (Custom Tumblers) / 3C Signs / Roof Repair Experts / Hillsview Landscaping / Ligonier Trucking / Pink Zebra / Motive Parts of Homestead / Cornwell Tools / Josh's Eggs Chevrolet.

 

Kitzmiller, a top five finisher in the first race, was running as high as third again at one point but had to pit under green to remedy a concern with both rear tires and nonetheless salvaged a top 10 result.

 

Drivers receiving the new for 2021 “stimulus bonus” included Schacht for leading halfway in both the first and second races, Petersburg, West Virginia’s Berg for being the top finishing hard charger of the first race, and Kromer for being the hard charger in the second race in his No. 77 High Voltage AC/DC Tribute Band / Lehigh Valley Cancer Institute / Mission R.A.C.E.R. / Versalift East / Leindecker Racing Engines / K2 Motorsports Toyota.

 

Next up on the schedule will be Ohio’s 3/10-mile Midvale Speedway in less than two weeks, a track where Schacht has won twice but Ebeling has never been behind the wheel.  Nevertheless, ending the night at Dominion with a win certainly has the outlook and spirits remaining high going in.

 

“We intend to run all the races this year so a second and a first is a pretty good way to start out the season,” Ebeling concluded.  “We’ll take this momentum and move into the next race and see what we can do there.”

Layne Riggs Dominates a Rough Race at Ace

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Written By: CARS Tour
www.carsracingtour.com

Mooresville, NC 5/7/21 – Bahama, North Carolina CARS Tour regular Layne Riggs dominated Friday night’s running of The Race at Ace 125 at Ace Speedway. Riggs bested Bobby McCarty who started the race from the pole position, followed by Justin Johnson in the third position.

 

Riggs won by .907 seconds and led the entire 125 lap event with the exception of a lap 89 restart that allowed McCarty to pick up an additional championship bonus point for leading a lap.

 

Riggs’ car may have been the only machine that didn’t have damage after a caution filled event collected a majority of the field at one point or another.

 

While the top three finishers may have left the speedway happy, multiple drivers left feeling disappointed and frustrated with their follow competitors.

 

One of those was Deac McCaskill who entered Friday night’s race one point behind championship leader Bobby McCarty. McCaskill was caught up in a lap 88 incident between rookies Kaden Honeycutt and Joe Valento that ended the veteran’s night early and will drop him down in the standings.

 

Rounding out the top five was Jared Fryar, who came from deep in the field to score the fourth place result, and Jonathan Shafer, with his best showing of the 2021 campaign.

Solid Rock Carriers CARS Tour Event Preview

The Race at Ace 125 - May 7, 2021

Ace Speedway – Elon, NC

 

MOORESVILLE, N.C. (May 4, 2021) – The CARS Late Model Stock Tour returns to Ace Speedway for its annual visit to the 4/10th mile paperclip shaped track. The speedway has hosted the series the past three seasons and has produced some tight racing and close finishes. Two-time winner at the track and current championship points leader, Bobby McCarty and his Nelson Motorsports team will be the heavy favorite Friday night. McCarty has led 328 out of the 370 laps of racing he has competed in CARS events at Ace Speedway. The fellow veteran Deac McCaskill will be right on McCarty’s heel as he sits just one point out of first place position. McCaskill has found a spark this year that has him consistently in position for wins each and every week. One surprise going into this weekend is the uncertainty of Ryan Millington returning to defend his win a season ago. Millington, who has been just as solid as McCarty at Ace, will test a new car Wednesday afternoon and then make the decision to compete as a late entry.

QUICK HITS

Ace Speedway, the Inside Track

If you as a fan has watched a race at the Elon, North Carolina race track, you know that track position is crucial to success. The paperclip shaped track features long straights and tight sharp turns on both ends of the facility. This leads to competitors fighting for real estate on the inside groove each and every lap. A driver who has the inside line, especially on restarts, can turn to the inside and see the outside driver fall back losing grip in the outer groove. This is if your car is handling the way you want it to. Patience, position, and a car that turns well through the center of the corners is the key to success this weekend.

 

Cann’s Consistency Coming Together Early in 2021

Female competitor Jessica Cann has been a staple on the tour the past two seasons. During that time, she has earned respect from her fellow competitors on the track and fans off the track. Consistently finishing events and logging laps over the years has led to a solid start to the 2021 season. Cann currently sits 17th in the championship standings after the first three events, which is just one position shy from her 16th place standing in 2021. A solid finish at Ace, a track which she already has a pair of series starts at, could easily push her to the top 15 in the points standings (just six points back) early on in the 2021 campaign.   

 

Trevor Ward Ready to Return at Ace

Winston-Salem, North Carolina driver Trevor Ward will make his first CARS Tour start of the young 2021 season this weekend. Ward, who calls Ace his home track, has multiple wins at the facility, including one this year. Ace Speedway is the site of his second best career CARS Tour finish (5th). After competing full-time on the tour during the 2018 and 2019 season, Ward scaled back to a partial schedule a season ago. Now ready to return to action at his home track, fans should keep an eye on Ward and his chances to score his first career podium finish in CARS Tour action.

 

The Solid Rock Carriers CARS Tour is one of the premier short track series in the United States.

Bickle Cements His Legacy with Joe Shear Classic Victory at Madison

Full Results

By: Kevin Ramsell

After a long hiatus, the engines roared back to life at Madison International Speedway in Oregon, WI on Sunday afternoon. The fans returned in full force and witnessed a member of the Speedway’s Hall of Fame hold off a late challenge from a teenage future star to win the Joe Shear Classic 200.

Rich Bickle Jr. emerged from his car, which was a tribute to the legendary driver, in victory lane to a loud cheer from a nearly full stands and put his head down on the roof of his car to collect his thoughts in pulling off an emotional victory on Sunday afternoon.

“We have been on working on this deal for a long time. We have bad ass fast at a lot of places,” an emotional Bickle said in victory lane. “The car wasn’t that good, I just think we had some help.”

Bickle ran his classic style of race where he carefully drove through the first half of the race and saved his car for a run in the second half of the event.

By lap 100, he was running in the ninth position. The caution flew on lap 104 when leader Dan Fredrickson lost an oil line causing Jonathan Eilen and Luke Fenhaus to spin in turn four to bring out a caution. Fredrickson’s team was able to get the oil line repaired and re-joined the event. ARCAMT officials made the call that Fredrickson was the cause of the caution, thus giving Eilen and Fredrickson their spot back. 

During that caution, everyone except Casey Johnson, made their pit stop and put three fresh tires on their cars.

The restart on lap 115 had Johnson in the lead, but a big puff of smoke came out of Eilen’s car and he went to the pits done for the day. With Johnson on older tires, he faded back in the pack while Dennis Prunty took the lead on lap 117. Fenhaus followed Prunty to move into the second spot.

Four-time ARCAMT champion Ty Majeski, who fell back to 11th after making contact with Fredrickson earlier in the race, came back through to take over the third spot by lap 119. He would pass Prunty for second on lap 130.

On lap 134, Bickle would get by Prunty for the third spot while ahead of him, Majeski was trying to chase down Fenhaus for the top spot. On lap 145, the top three were nose to tail going around “Wisconsin’s Fastest Half-Mile Oval.”

Two laps later, Bickle would get around Majeski for the second spot, causing some fans to jump to their feet. 

On lap 150, more fans jumped up from their seats as Bickle would get on the inside of Fenhaus for the lead. He would take over the top spot on lap 151.

Dalton Zehr started making his charge to get a podium finish as he got by Majeski for third on lap 165. A lap later the caution came out for a competition caution.

Johnson took advantage of that caution to come in and get fresh tires. On the ensuing restart on lap 172, Johnson’s car came to a stop on the front stretch to bring the caution back out. Johnson would retire with rear suspension issues.

The field restarted on lap 177 Fenhaus battling Bickle for the lead and would have the lead by a nose when the caution flew on lap 180 for Kody Swanson’s spin in turn two. 

Bickle would continue to lead with Fenhaus in tow until the final caution flew on lap 192 as Prunty came to a stop in turns one and two. 

The final eight laps will be one for fans to remember for a long time as the veteran and the rising star battled for the victory. 

Bickle would get in front of Fenhaus for the final few laps and hold off the challenges to win the Joe Shear Classic.

“The four kid (Fenhaus) is really good and they have a lot going on behind their program,” Bickle said after the race. “He made the old man work today. It just feels good to win.”

“He was me and I was Joe Shear all over again,” Bickle said.

Fenhaus, even though he finished second, didn’t mind with who beat him on Sunday.

“It was a good run, I can’t complain finishing second to Rich Bickle,” Fenhaus said after the race. “He got by me and he was the better car. But those cautions helped me a ton and I tried to get a good finish out of it at the end, but again I can’t complain.”

Zehr came home with a strong third place finish, but was hoping for a no cautions near the end of the race.

“Please, no yellow,” Zehr said. “Every time it would take four or five laps to come in, and for the other guys it would take four or five laps to fall off, and it was like all of a sudden I could roll through the center better than anyone. We had a great race car.”

Paul Shafer Jr., fresh off his victory at Grundy County Speedway on Saturday night, came home to finish fourth while Jeff Storm rounded out the top five.

Fredrickson recovered to finish sixth, while Majeski came home seventh. Travis Sauter was eighth. Gabe Sommers and Kody Swanson rounded out the top ten.

Two qualifier heats helped set the field for the Joe Shear Classic, with the top three from each advancing to the main event. Justin Mondeik, Ryan Farrell and John Beale advanced in the first with Nick Murgic, Bobby Kendall and Austin Nason making the field from the second.

Dennis Prunty won the odd fast heat, while Gabe Sommers won the even race.

John DeAngelis, LeVon VanDerGeest and Max Kahler advanced to the main event from the last chance race. Kahler held off a late charge from Dale Nottestad in a spirited battle.

Fenhaus set a fast time of 17.288 seconds, but came up short of setting a new track record which is still currently held by Chris Wimmer. Wimmer set the record in 2012 with a time of 17.245 seconds.

Tristan Swanson held off James Swan to win the Midwest Truck Series 36-lap feature.

Bobby Wilberg won the 36-lap 602 Crate Model feature in a Joe Shear tribute car.

The next points event for the ARCA Midwest Tour will be on Saturday, May 29th with the Salute the Troops 100 at Jefferson Speedway located between Cambridge and Jefferson, Wisconsin.

Many of the ARCA Midwest Tour competitors will be heading to Winchester Speedway in Winchester, Indiana on Tuesday, May 18th for Fly Over States 150.
