BADGER MIDGET SERIES

   "Boden scores wire-to wire victory in Wilmot Badger Midget Race"
            "First career Badger Midget feature win for third-year driver"

 
By Bryan Gapinski
 
Wilmot, Wis., July 6-Zach Boden won the 10th annual "Salute to Harry Turner" Zimbrick Chevrolet of Sun Prairie Badger Midget Racing Series feature Saturday Night at Wilmot Raceway. The win marked the first career series feature victory for the third-year driver.
 
          Boden jumped into the lead at the start of the event, closely followed by Jordan Mattson. The events only caution appeared on Lap 7 when second place Mattson came to a stop, retiring from the event. On the restart Tristan Koenings escaped injury in a Turn One flip.
          Boden led Brian Peterson, and Chase McDermand on the restart. McDermand took over second place at the mid-way point. Boden's advantage was a 1.8 second lead over McDermand, with five laps remaining. Boden caught the tail of the field two laps later, allowing McDermand to quickly "cut into" Bodens lead.          
           Boden driving the Harlan Kittelson owned Bullet/Ford Duratech No. 2 finished 0.34 seconds ahead of the fast closing McDermand. Peterson, Ryan Probst, and rookie Matt Rechek, rounded out the top five.
       "I got really slowed down by the lapped cars the last couple of laps, but I was committed to running the bottom, I knew someone had to be closing on me, I finished second to Scott (Hatton) in this race two-years ago during my rookie year, it's great to finally get a win" commented Boden after the victory.
        Routson leads McDermand by twenty points entering the Sunday Night's July 7 "38th annual Pepsi Midget Nationals" event at Angell Park Speedway.

POWRI RACING SERIES

COLWELL CASHES IN FOR FIRST MIDGET WIN AT HUMBOLDT

 


 
HUMBOLDT, KANS. (July 14, 2019) - Another first-time winner made the trip to victory lane on Sunday night at Humboldt Speedway with Jesse Colwell of Red Bluff, Calif. topping the 
POWRi Lucas Oil National / West Midget League feature. Inheriting the lead after Zach Daum flipped on lap 25, Colwell controlled the final five laps and drove the Keith Kunz Motorsports, JBL Audio, Bullet/Toyota No. 71 to his first-career triumph.
 
Earning PAC Racing Springs High Point Man honors with a fifth-to-second heat race, Zach Daum of Pocahontas, Ill. paced the field aboard his Daum Motorsports, Bullet/Toyota No. 5D. Jonathan Beason of Broken Arrow, Okla. was slated to start on his outside, but trouble during the pace laps sent him to the work area and back to the tail, giving Blake Edwards of Claremore, Okla. the outside pole.
 
The initial green flag was short lived as a lap one caution involving Luke Howard, Devin Simmons, Cannon McIntosh and Holley Hollan, sent McIntosh and Hollan to the work area, with only Hollan returning to the track.
 
Driving away from the field, Daum immediately began to distance himself as a long-run was established. Building a 3-second lead by lap ten, Daum grew his advantage further as he galloped into lap traffic near the halfway mark. While Daum was checked out in front, both Hollan and Beason were crafting stellar charges into the top ten from the rear, and Jesse Colwell and Jake Neuman began tracking down Daison Pursley for the second spot.
 
Hitting the ten to go mark, Daum continued to stretch his lead while the battle for second heated up, as Colwell and Pursley went slider-for-slider with the runner-up position up for grabs. After swapping the spot back-and-forth for almost four laps, Colwell assumed the advantage and moved into second just before catastrophe struck.
 
Running away in lap traffic with five to go, tragedy struck for Zach Daum in a big way. Hauling down the front stretch, his Toyota Racing powerplant suddenly locked-up and shot the No. 5D dead right into the wall. What ensued was a violent series of end-over-end flips before he came to a rest at the entry to turn one. The scary moment concluded when a flame emerged and his machine caught on fire, but Daum was able to escape the wreckage and quickly climbed out of the car under his own power to the roar of the thankful crowd.
 
Inheriting the race lead following Daum's rough misfortune, Colwell led the field back to green and controlled the final restart with ease. The Red Bluff, Calif. native pulled away to lead the last five laps and earn his first-career POWRi Lucas Oil National / West Midget League victory aboard the Keith Kunz Motorsports, JBL Audio, Bullet/Toyota No. 71.
 
Following Colwell to the line and earning his own career-best finish was 14-year old Daison Pursley of Locust Grove, Okla. with a second-place finish in the Keith Kunz Motorsports, Toyota Racing No. 9. Rounding out the podium with a strong 12th-to-third charge was Jake Neuman of New Berlin, Ill. in the Jim Neuman Racing, BRANDT, BOSS/SR-11 No. 3N.
 
Closing out the top five was Jonathan Beason with a magnificent recovery to finish fourth after going tail back, and Holley Hollan scoring fifth with her own impressive rebound after heading to the rear of the field. Behind them was Andrew Felker in sixth, Ace McCarthy in seventh, Trey Marcham in eighth, Chance Morton in ninth and Luke Howard in tenth.
 
The POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League will enjoy some downtime next weekend before coming back to life on Friday, July 26 at Belle-Clair Speedway in Belleville, Ill. and Saturday, July 27 at Macon Speedway in Macon, Ill.

MCCARTHY MAGNIFICENT IN FIRST-CAREER WIN AT VALLEY


 
GRAIN VALLEY, MO. (July 13, 2019) - Winning his first-career POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League feature on Saturday night at Valley Speedway, Ace McCarthy of Tahlequah, Okla. was undeniable in the 30-lap main event. Driving around his teammate, Jake Neuman, on the second circuit, McCarthy then fended off several attacks from young Holley Hollan as he held on for an impressive first-career triumph aboard the Jim Neuman Racing, Two-Eight Drilling, BOSS/SR-11 No. 28.
 
Sharing PAC Racing Springs High Point Men honors, the Jim Neuman Racing duo of Jake Neuman and Ace McCarthy brought the feature field to life as the green flag dropped. Neuman of New Berlin, Ill., who won Friday's feature, led the opening circuit aboard his Brandt, BOSS/SR-11 No. 3N by a nail-biting 0.008 seconds over McCarthy at the line.
 
Making his move on Neuman the next time by, McCarthy tossed a slider towards his teammate and received one right back at him in turn three. However, McCarthy was able to cross him up and dive down low to lead the second circuit and gain command of the top spot.
 
A pair of cautions bunched the field up and put a spotlight on Holley Hollan of Broken Arrow, Okla., as the 17-year old young woman maneuvered her Keith Kunz Motorsports, SIRIUS XM, Bullet/Toyota No. 67 into the second spot from seventh. Restarting with eight laps down, Hollan snuck below McCarthy and made it a side-by-side affair at the stripe, but McCarthy's momentum up top was too strong and he held on.
 
Coming by on lap 11, Hollan perfected the bottom side of turns three and four and was able to snag the lead as McCarthy's No. 28 was reeled in by the cushion. However, her lead was short-lived, as the caution flew for a three-car pileup, reverting us back to the last completed lap and handing McCarthy control.
 
Going back to green on the final restart with 12 laps to go, McCarthy caught some breathing room as Hank Davis of Sand Springs, Okla. challenged Hollan for second and held her up. The two briefly exchanged positions before Hollan was able to regain command of the runner-up spot and reasserted her attention to tracking down McCarthy.
 
Switching to the low side of turns one and two, but remaining committed to the cushion on the opposite end, McCarthy was able to build his advantage in the closing stages as an all-out war for third between Davis, Andrew Felker, Zach Daum, Jake Neuman and Daison Pursley took center stage.
 
In the end, Ace McCarthy's Jim Neuman Racing, Two-Eight Drilling, BOSS/SR-11 No. 28 was not to be denied, as the Tahlequah, Okla. native broke through to score his first-career POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League victory in the "Thunder in the Valley" finale at Valley Speedway.
 
Holley Hollan followed him to the line with career-best finish, driving the Keith Kunz Motorsports, SIRIUS XM, BOSS/SR-11 No. 67 from ninth-to-second. Andrew Felker of Carl Junction, Mo. rounded out the podium for the second night in a row, this time driving the Chad Shields Racing, MelMark Pipe & Supply, Ripper/Fontana No. 44S from 11th-to-third.
 
Rounding out the top ten on Saturday at Valley Speedway was Zach Daum in fourth, Hank Davis in fifth, Trey Marcham in sixth, Jake Neuman in seventh, Daison Pursley in eighth, Cannon McIntosh in ninth and Jesse Colwell in tenth.
 
The POWRi Lucas Oil National / West Midgets will pair up again tomorrow Sunday, July 14 to conclude the three-day weekend with a trip to Humboldt Speedway in Humboldt, Kansas. For those unable to make it, you can watch LIVE on www.speedshifttv.com.

MCINTOSH LIGHT AT SCALES; NEUMAN ASSUMES WIN AT VALLEY


 
GRAIN VALLEY, MO. (July 12, 2019) - No matter the story, no matter the driver, no matter the place, rules are rules. Unfortunately, on Friday night at Valley Speedway, 16-year old Cannon McIntosh was disqualified after initially winning his first-career POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League feature. Rolling across the scales on numerous occasions, the No. 08 consistently came across short of the 1,050 lbs. minimum requirement, ultimately giving Jake Neuman of New Berlin, Ill. his fourth-career POWRi National Midget victory.
 
Before the scene at the scales, the 30-lap "Thunder in the Valley" National / West feature was brought to life by front row starters Chance Morton of Coweta, Okla. and Zach Daum of Pocahontas, Ill. as the green flag flew. Leading the opening circuit, Daum stuck his Bullet/Toyota No. 5D to the low side, but Morton wound his No. 7M up on the high line and drove around to take the lead on lap two.
 
A lap nine caution jumbled the field back up and sixth-starter Cannon McIntosh came firing with a slider on Daum for the second spot. Another stoppage for top-five running Ace McCarthy halted the action and the ensuing restart saw a three-war war break out between McIntosh, Daum and Hank Davis for the runner-up position. Swapping slider-after-slider, corner-after-corner, McIntosh finally broke free of the battle and set his sights on Morton out front.
 
Restarting with 12 laps left, McIntosh had a golden opportunity to seize the lead and quickly took a shot at Morton, but the No. 7M prevailed and remained in control. However, on lap 22, the race took a wild turn. Attempting a slider for the lead into turn one, McIntosh's No. 08 drifted up just as Morton started hopping, and slight contact sent Morton over the cushion and upside down over the banking of turn two.
 
While Morton's bid for career-win #1 came to a disappointing end, the field re-fired with eight to go and McIntosh quickly pulled away. As lap traffic became tense and McIntosh's No. 08 was too tight on the cushion, Daum began to sneak in close and set up for a final lap chance at the win. However, the No. 5D stalled it in turn three going for the win, bringing his machine to a stop and setting up a one-lap dash to checkered.
 
Driving around Neuman's slidejob effort in turn one, McIntosh slapped it off the curb and drove away to his first-career POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League victory. A win months-in-the-making, the 16-year old Bixby, Okla. native had finally conquered a POWRi National Midget feature aboard the Dave Mac Motorsports, Drive WFX, Spike/Toyota No. 08. However, even as excited and jubilant the victory lane ceremony was, the emotions were short-lived and soon took a 180.
 
Rolling across the scales in hopes of meeting the mandatory rulebook weight minimum of 1,050 lbs, McIntosh's No. 08 came across light. As the mood drastically changed, the crew rolled him off and back on, only to fall short once again. Making a third and final attempt at hitting the minimum limit, McIntosh's machine missed the mark again, resulting in a heartbreaking disqualification for the young gasser.
 
Ultimately, Jake Neuman of New Berlin, Ill. was awarded his fourth-career POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League victory. A winner here in July of last year, the triumph marks back-to-back wins at Valley for Neuman aboard his Jim Neuman Racing, Brandt, BOSS/SR-11 No. 3N.
 
Coming across in second-place and earning Toyota Racing Development Hard Charger honors, Andrew Felker of Carl Junction, Mo. supplied a magnificent 18th-to-second bid in his Chad Shields Racing, MelMark Pipe & Supply, Ripper/Fontana No. 44S. Rounding out the podium was tenth-starter Jesse Colwell of Red Bluff, Calif. aboard the Keith Kunz Motorsports, JBL Audio, Bullet/Toyota No. 71. 
 
Closing out the top ten was Kyle Jones with a 14th-to-fourth effort, Ace McCarthy recovering to fifth, Daniel Robinson moving from 21st-to-sixth, Holley Hollan crossing in seventh, Austin Brown advancing to eighth, Daison Pursley picking up ninth and Trey Marcham managing a tenth-place run.
 
The POWRi Lucas Oil National / West Midgets return to Valley Speedway in Grain Valley, Mo. on Saturday for the second night of "Thunder in the Valley." On Sunday, the National superstars and the West regional warriors head for Humboldt Speedway in Humboldt, Kans. to conclude the three-day weekend.

SEAVEY PICKS UP PEPSI NATIONALS TRIUMPH AT ANGELL PARK


 
SUN PRAIRIE, WISC. (July 7, 2019) - Adding "Pepsi Nationals Champion" to his resume, Logan Seavey of Sutter, Calif. won the 38th running of the iconic event on Sunday night at Wisconsin's famed Angell Park Speedway. Advancing from fifth-to-first by lap 14, the Keith Kunz Motorsports No. 67 gasser fended off a final lap haymaker from Cannon McIntosh to secure his seventh POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League victory of 2019.
 
Bringing the 22-car field to the green flag, McIntosh of Bixby, Okla. in the Dave Mac Motorsports, Drive WFX, Spike/Toyota No. 08 paced the front row alongside Tucker Klaasmeyer of Paola, Kans. aboard the Keith Kunz Motorsports, Link-Belt Excavators, Bullet/Toyota No. 27. Assuming early command, Klaasmeyer bolted to the lead and brought McIntosh along with Zach Daum of Pocahontas, Ill. in tow.
 
As the battle for the lead heated up with ten laps down, attention turned to the front pack as Klaasmeyer, Daum and Seavey started a duel for the top spot. Nearly going three-wide on the ever-changing 1/3rd-mile surface, Seavey forged ahead on the 14th circuit and began to sneak away while McIntosh regained his composure and maneuvered by Daum and Klaasmeyer into second.
 
"When they work it like that the bottom normally slicks off and gets hard to run like it did there," noted Seavey. "I got on top too early and Tracy slipped by me, then I started wondering if it was ever going to clean off. I kept working it and working it after those restarts, my car was great on the long run once we got some heat in the tires."
 
Tracking Seavey down in the closing stages, McIntosh approached the No. 67 and was ready to attack for a shot at his first-career POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League victory with two laps to go. Showing his nose around the bottom of turns one and two, McIntosh lost some ground, but recovered quickly to set up one final run on the final lap. 
 
Flying to the bottom of turn three on the last circuit, McIntosh was set to force a decision upon Seavey, but a last-minute diversion to avoid an infield tire sent the No. 08 up the race track and gave Seavey clean room to find the checkered flag.
 
"That was a really fun race track, I always love coming to this place and seeing the atmosphere the fans create," said Seavey in victory lane. "Connor [Ridge] kept telling me all day how much he really wanted to win this one, and I really wanted it too. I led a bunch of laps here last year and lost it on the last lap, so it's nice to come back and redeem ourselves.
 
For the Sutter, Calif. driver of the Keith Kunz Motorsports, Mobil 1, Bullet/Toyota No. 67, Sunday's victory in the 38th annual Pepsi Nationals marked Seavey's first-ever victory at Angell Park Speedway, the seventh of his stellar 2019 POWRi campaign, and the 15th of his Lucas Oil National Midget League career.
 
Following Seavey to the stripe was Cannon McIntosh with a close second-place finish, a young man who continues to be oh, so close to breaking through for his first-career victory. Early leader Tucker Klaasmeyer slipped back to round out the podium, while Tanner Carrick and Chase Jones closed out the top five.
 
Cannon McIntosh (Auto Meter Heat 1), Holley Hollan (KSE Racing Products Heat 2) and Zach Daum (Advanced Racing Suspensions Heat 3) topped heat race action on Sunday night at Angell Park Speedway.
 
Up next for the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League is a trio of races in the "Show-Me State" next weekend. The tripleheader begins with back-to-back nights at Valley Speedway in Grain Valley, Mo. on Friday and Saturday, July 12-13 with a Sunday, July 14 appearance at Sweet Springs Motorsports Complex in Sweet Springs, Mo.

BACON TOPS CORN BELT NATIONALS PRELIM AT KNOXVILLE


 
KNOXVILLE, IOWA (July 6, 2019) - Coming out on top of a wild opening half that saw countless lead changes, Brady Bacon of Broken Arrow, Okla. outlasted Chris Windom and Kevin Thomas Jr. to score the win in Friday's BRANDT Corn Belt Nationals preliminary feature at Knoxville Raceway.
 
After two flights of qualifying, six cutthroat heat races, and two semi-features, a field of 51 non-wing sprint cars was cut down to 24 worthy feature starters. With points at all-time premium, every position counted all night long on Friday night as the Corn Belt Nationals made their grand entrance into the world of racing.
 
Leading the field to the green flag in the 25-lap preliminary feature, Chris Windom of Canton, Ill. shot to the early lead, but Kevin Thomas Jr. of Cullman, Ala. was quick on the trigger and rolled the bottom side from third-to-first by the time he hit the backstretch. While Thomas Jr. led the opening circuit, Windom roared back around the outside and put his NOS Energy Drink. No. 5G back to the point.
 
Starting an all out WAR for the top spot, Windom and Thomas Jr. went toe-to-toe over the course of the next five laps, remaining glued side-by-side lap-after-lap and corner-after-corner as they duked it out in the early running. Focused on each other, Brady Bacon, who started sixth, caught them by surprised on the sixth go-round as he slid Windom for second and made it a three-way fight.
 
Windom recovered and led laps 7-11 before a bobble on the entry to turn one created a slip up and allowed Bacon to sneak underneath him and assume command on lap 12. At the halfway mark, Windom recovered and drove back around to the lead, only for Bacon to AGAIN strike back and reclaim the top spot on lap 14, this time for good.
 
Bacon ensued to sneak away from Windom in the latter half, but a swarm of lap traffic brought Windom right back to Bacon's rear bumper in the closing circuits. As Bacon was boxed in on the bottom and Windom came storming around the outside, the white flag waved and the energy in the air became electric.
 
Surviving the final half-mile, Brady Bacon fended off Windom's resurgence and held on to win the opening night of the BRANDT Corn Belt Nationals at Knoxville Raceway. The victory for the Hoffman Racing, Mean Green, Triple-X No. 69 marked Bacon's second-career non-wing win at Knoxville and puts him in the catbird seat heading into tomorrow with $20,000 on the line.
 
"I really love this place," said Bacon in Victory Lane.  "It's fun to be able to do in this car, what I'd like to be able to in our wing car when we run the Nationals when we see Donny (Schatz) and everyone who runs the bottom and middle so good.  I think, just having a lot of laps here...more than the competition helped me a little bit here to know that middle would come in and things like that.  I was having to run a little different line, but I was able to catch the marbles in the middle and get some speed to pass a couple guys.  It is testing to slow down and run the bottom.  Windom almost got back by me, but fortunately we had a car good enough to make up for my mistakes."
 
Chris Windom rallied late and offered the fans a thrilling final few laps but fell just short with a second-place bid for his No. 5G machine. Kevin Thomas Jr. closed out the podium with a solid third-place effort his Hayward-Thomas Motorsports, Grainger No. 19T. Tyler Courtney of Indianapolis, Ind. brought his Clauson-Marshall Racing, NOS Energy Drink No. 7BC home in fourth, while Justin Grant of Ione, Calif. ran fifth in the TOPP Motorsports, NOS Energy Drink No. 4.
 
Rounding out the top ten on night one of the BRANDT Corn Belt Nationals at Knoxville Raceway was Ryan Bernal in sixth, Chase Stockon in seventh, Jason McDougal in eighth, CJ Leary in ninth and Matt Westfall in tenth.
 
CJ Leary of Greenfield, Ind. set quicktime in Flight A of qualifying with a time of 19.297 seconds aboard his Reinbold/Underwood AME Electrical No. 19AZ, while Justin Grant matched his time of 19.927 seconds to top Flight B of qualifying. Leary, Bacon, Wesley Smith, Courtney, Nick Bilbee and Stockon claimed heat race wins. Kory Schudy won the C-Main, while Carson Short topped the B-Main.
 
The action resumes tomorrow night with two flights of time trials, four qualifiers, a C-Main, a B-Main and a 30-lap, $20,000/Win, $1,000/Start BRANDT Corn Belt Nationals championship main event. If you can't make it in person to Knoxville Raceway, tune into www.dirtvision.comfor a live broadcast.

BELL TEAMS WITH BOAT, DOMINATES LINCOLN FOR POWRi WIN #29


 
LINCOLN, ILL. (June 30, 2019) - For Christopher Bell, a change of scenery could do nothing in deterring his drive to victory lane on Sunday night with the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League for the 29th time in his storied, yet young career. Switching to the Tucker-Boat Motorsports, Pristine Auction, Spike/Toyota No. 84, the Norman, Okla. native went wire-to-wire at Lincoln Speedway to win in dominating fashion.
 
Starting from the pole position after he earned PAC Sprints High Point Man honors with a sixth-to-first heat race run, Bell guided the field to the green flag alongside Logan Seavey of Sutter, Calif. in the Keith Kunz-Curb Agajanian Motorsports, Mobil 1, Bullet-By-Spike/Toyota No. 67.
 
After leading the opening circuit, Bell nearly saw the lead slip from his grasp by lap two when he went to the test the high side of turns one and two. Allowing Seavey to pull alongside, the duo went wheel-to-wheel into turn three vying for the same real estate at the low line. Edging his front end into the corner and prevailing, Bell held on to the top spot and force Seavey to go searching for his next move.
 
While Bell kicked it into high gear and checked out, the battle for second heated up as Ace McCarthy of Tahlequah, Okla. snuck by Seavey when he bobbled on the top side of turns three and four. Several laps later, Seavey shot back by McCarthy and brought KKM teammate, Tanner Carrick, with him into the third spot.
 
The red flag flew on lap 23 for an upside down Jesse Colwell, who also collected Tanner Thorson in the mix. The break in action brought Bell's torrid pace to a screeching halt and snapped his monstrous 8.1 second lead over Seavey. Going back to green with seven laps to go, Bell had a giant cushion of six lap cars separating himself and Seavey, a near improbable mountain to overcome.
 
Quickly storming away and running off in command, Christopher Bell controlled the final seven laps at Lincoln Speedway with ease and found the checkered flag for his 29th-career POWRi National Midget League win. All 28 of Bell's previous POWRi triumphs came with Keith Kunz-Curb Agajanian Motorsports, the powerhouse team that he rose to fame with. However, on this night it was friend Chad Boat and Tucker-Boat Motorsports who he brought to victory lane, proving a change of scenery resulted in a standard outcome for the Norman, Okla. native.
 
Chasing Bell to the line and continuing his stellar 2019 campaign was Logan Seavey with a second-place finish in the Mobil No. 67 machine. Tanner Carrick of Lincoln, Calif. rounded out the podium aboard his Craftsman No. 71K. Zach Daum of Pocahontas, Ill. Claimed a fourth-place finish, while Tanner Thorson of Minden, Nev. rallied from a late crash to finish fifth. Closing out the top ten was Tyler Thomas in sixth, Ace McCarthy in seventh, Joe B. Miller in eighth, Cannon McIntosh in ninth and Tucker Klaasmeyer in tenth.
 
Scoring heat race victories over the 25-car field was Logan Seavey (Auto Meter Heat 1), Christopher Bell (KSE Racing Products Heat 2) and Presley Truedson (Advanced Racing Suspension Heat 3).
 
Up next for the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League is a Saturday, July 6 appearance at Fairbury American Legion Speedway in Fairbury, Illinois followed by a Sunday, July 7 trip to Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin.

NICHOLSON NABS WAR WIN AT SPOON RIVER FROM 11TH


 
CANTON, ILL. (June 29, 2019) - Advancing from the 11th spot, inside of row six, Anthony Nicholson of Bartlett, Tenn. methodically marched his way through the field and into contention for the lead by halfway of Saturday's 25-lap main event at Spoon River Speedway. Sneaking by Mario Clouser and Kory Schudy, Nicholson assumed the lead on lap 13 and held on for his second-career victory with the POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprint League.
 
With a fleet of 27 entries on hand, another slate of four heats, a semi and a feature awaited the WAR Sprints at Spoon River. Mitchell Davis (Hinchman Racewear Heat 1), Kory Schudy (Bell Racing Heat 2), Riley Kreisel (Schure Built Suspension Heat 3), and Mario Clouser (Wilwood Heat 4) topped heat race action, while Mitch Wissmiller won the Hoosier Tire B-Main.
 
A four-car inversion pulled by LRB, Inc. High Point Man, Mitchell Davis, would line the feature field up with Mario Clouser of Auburn, Ill. and Joe B. Miller of Millersville, Mo. on the front row.
 
Clouser claimed the initial lead aboard his Yokahoma Tires No. 6, but his control was short-lived, as Kory Schudy of Springfield, Mo. made a wild four-wide move down the backstretch and slid underneath Clouser to take the lead on the second circuit. Schudy started to run away in command until a caution on lap 12 bunched the field up and changed the entire narrative.
 
On the ensuing restart, Clouser took a peep to the inside of Schudy into turn one, but slight contact created a bobble and Nicholson, who started 11th, took advantage by slipping into second. He didn't stop there, however, as coming out of turn four Nicholson snuck inside of Schudy and drove by him down the frontstretch to assume the lead on lap 13.
 
Checking out as the laps wound down, Nicholson's lead only grew until a lap 23 caution set up a nail-biting green-white-checkered restart to decide it all. Determined to break through for his first Spoon River triumph, Clouser showed his nose and dove into turn one looking to squeeze by Nicholson for the lead. However, as Clouser caught Nicholson's left rear the No. 6 went spinning, he saved it with a quick 360 recovery, but faltered to the tail of the field in heartbreaking fashion.
 
Keeping the DHR Suspension, Razor Edge Graphics, Maxim Chassis No. 16 under control, Anthony Nicholson of Bartlett, Tenn. remained calm, cool and collected as he survived the final restart to pick up the Saturday night victory at Spoon River Speedway. Scoring his second-career POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprint League win, Nicholson made this one extra special with a marvelous 11th-to-1st charge.
 
Joe B. Miller of Millersville, Mo. brought the McGarry Motorsports No. 31B home with a second-place finish, while Riley Kreisel snuck his way on the podium with a sudden sixth-to-third burst on the final restart for the reigning WAR Sprints champion. Current points leader Kory Schudy finished in fourth-place and Logan Faucon of Elkhart, Ill. rounded out the top five.
 
Closing out the top ten at Spoon River was Wesley Smith in sixth, Korey Weyant in seventh, Don Droud Jr. in eighth, Jack Wagner in ninth and Trey Gropp in tenth.
 
Next weekend, the POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprint League convenes upon the hollowed grounds of Iowa's Knoxville Raceway to take part in the inaugural $20,000/Win, $2,000/Start Corn Belt Nationals. Stay glued to WAR and Knoxville social media all week long for the latest news as the anticipation continues to build for this newly-formed crown jewel event set for Friday and Saturday, July 5-6.

WEYANT WIRES TRI-CITY DEBUT FOR 14TH-CAREER WAR WIN


 
GRANITE CITY, ILL. (June 28, 2019) - After storming around the outside of Colten Cottle on the second circuit, Korey Weyant went the distance on Friday night at Tri-City Speedway to win the POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprint League debut at the Granite City, Ill. 3/8th-mile. Fending off a hard charging Riley Kreisel in the closing laps, Weyant of Springfield, Ill. held on for his 14th-career triumph, extending his record as the winningest driver in WAR history.
 
Attracting a strong group of 32 racers for WAR's inaugural race at Tri-City Speedway, the evening got off to a slow start with a short rain delay, but the action quickly resumed with some hot and heavy heat races. Riley Kreisel (Hinchman Racewear Heat 1), Korey Weyant (Bell Racing Heat 2), Zach Daum (Schure Built Suspension Heat 3) and Jack Wagner (Wilwood Heat 4) topped preliminary action, while Mario Clouser won the Hoosier Tire B-Main.
 
Drawing a six-car inversion as the LRB, Inc. High Point Man after his eighth-to-first heat race bid, Zach Daum of Pocahontas, Ill. was relegated to the third row of the main event while Korey Weyant and Colten Cottle of Kansas, Ill. brought the field to the green flag.
 
Cottle, a WAR winner at Champaign (Ill.) Fairgrounds last July, assumed the initial lead after outlasting a three-wide battle into turn one with Weyant and Anthony Nicholson. As Cottle crept around the bottom, Weyant wound up the outside and put his No. 99 against the cushion, driving around Cottle for the lead on the second lap.
 
While Weyant pulled away in command, attention turned to second as the battle for the runner-up spot was heating up between Cottle, Daum and Kreisel. Ripping around the top, Kreisel drove by both of his competitors and set his sights on Weyant at the halfway mark.
 
Throwing a line out and reeling Weyant in like a fish on the water, Kreisel quickly tracked down the No. 99 and was set to offer a thrilling fight for the lead. As Kreisel elected to tread the cushion all the way around, Weyant was keen to the bottom of turns three and four. However, with lap traffic looming and Kreisel hot on his heels, Weyant made the move to the top all the way around, a potential race-saving move.
 
The final restart fired off with ten laps to go and Weyant yanked Kreisel down the frontstretch to begin the short run with a strong advantage. The Warsaw, Mo. teenager threw it all out there in the closing laps as he put it against the fence and narrowed the gap between he and Weyant, but unfortunately it was not enough to make a move.
 
In the end, Korey Weyant of Springfield, Ill. held on to find victory lane in the POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprint League debut at Tri-City Speedway with a commanding run. Marking his 14th-career triumph, Weyant extended his record as the winningest driver in the young eight-year history of the WAR Sprints.
 
The defending POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprint League champion, Riley Kreisel, brought the No. 90 home with a close second-place finish after closing in on Weyant. Rounding out the podium with an impressive tenth-to-third charge was Mitchell Davis of Auburn, Ill. aboard his No. 56.
 
Mario Clouser earned hard charger honors with a magnificent 17th-to-fourth haul and points leader, Kory Schudy, rounded out the top five with a 14th-to-fifth bid. Closing out the top ten at Tri-City was Wesley Smith in sixth, Anthony Nicholson in seventh, Mitch Wissmiller in eighth, Joe B. Miller in ninth and Don Droud Jr. in tenth.
 
The POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprint League rolls on tomorrow Saturday, June 29 with a return trip to Spoon River Speedway in Canton, Ill. with a $2,000 to win, $200 to start feature. For those unable to attend, you can watch a live broadcast of the racing program at www.speedshifttv.com.

MUST SEE XTREME SPRINT CAR SERIES

Blonde Denies Litt In A Must-See Thriller At Birch Run


 

BIRCH RUN, Mich. – Jason Blonde used some late-race theatrics to end a two-year Must See Racing Sprint Car Series winless drought on Friday night at Birch Run Speedway and Event Center.

Blonde, who was a distant second to Ryan Litt for much of the 30-lap feature, got a breath of new life in the form of a caution flag with five laps to go – after rookie Bobby Komisarski spun in turn two.

That set up a restart with Blonde on Litt’s back bumper, and the home-state veteran took full advantage.

Blonde trailed Litt for a lap and a half before ducking to the inside off turn two on lap 28, powering past the Canadian in turn three and pulling away over the final two circuits for his sixth-career series win.

The victory ties Blonde for fifth all-time on the series win list with Troy DeCaire, who made his return to Must See Racing competition after a five-year absence on Friday night and finished fourth.

“Ryan was checked out tonight; if it wasn’t for that yellow, I wouldn’t have had a chance,” noted Blonde. “I just have to thank this No. 42 crew, because we were really good in one hot lap session today, but in qualifying, we weren’t that good and in our heat race, we were really bad. They just kept working on it, though, we threw the kitchen sink at it and it worked well enough to get here to victory lane tonight.”

Litt was solid for the first 25 laps of the race, picking his way through traffic from sixth on the grid and taking the lead on the 10th round with a diving move around Charlie Schultz in turn two.

Once out front, Litt extended his advantage over the field to nearly five seconds despite slower traffic that hassled his No. 07 at times. However, Litt’s attempt to take home the winner’s plaque and his first Must See Racing victory since March of 2013 at Five Flags Speedway was foiled by the late yellow.

He nailed the final restart and opened a quick gap over Blonde, but Blonde quickly carved the deficit back down before making the race-defining pass entering turn three with three laps to go.

Blonde noted afterward that “it was simply a case of who was going to lift first, and I wasn’t lifting.”

“My car started off really good. I was actually surprised I picked my way through there like I did. We just started to get loose, and I wasn’t sure what we’d have after the caution,” added Litt. “Jason’s always really strong on the restarts, and I knew he would try and come at me. My car just wasn’t good enough to hold him off at the end. It’s a good points day, but all I know is I just lost and I hate losing.”

Anthony McCune completed the podium after passing Schultz following the final restart. DeCaire, driving Wayne Stickney’s No. 99, trailed the younger McCune in fourth and Schultz finished fifth.

Fast qualifier Brian Gerster, Joe Liguori, Tom Jewell, Kevin Feeney and Frank Neill completed the top 10.

Four-time defending series champion Jimmy McCune saw his hopes of a fifth-straight title take a huge blow when engine issues after his heat race Friday night left him unable to take the green flag.

His nephew, Anthony McCune, took over the top spot in points as a result of those mechanical woes.

The next race for the Must See Racing Sprint Car Series will be Aug. 10 at Berlin (Mich.) Raceway.

Gerster Sweeps Birch Run Must See Practice

"Two-Time Badger Midget Champion Miles Melius dies at 95"

 
By Bryan Gapinski
Slinger, Wis., July 10---Two-time Badger Midget Auto Racing Association Champion Miles "The Mouse" Melius died July 9 at the age of 95-years old, Tuesday Night. Melius is considered one of the greatest drivers in Wisconsin Short Track Racing History. His storied career and first championships came with the Badger Midget Series.
       Melius finished the final two 1948 Badger Midget season events with a Sept. 19 victory at Angell Park Speedway (Sun Prairie, Wis.), followed by a third-place finish.
       Melius's first Badger title in 1949 was aided by a huge fourteen feature victory season. Melius captured five wins at Angell Park, including three in a row! He also captured multiple Badger feature victories at Slinger Speedway (4), Cedarburg Raceway (3), and DePere Speedway (2). 
      Melius started defense of his Badger title by winning the 1950 season opener at Angell Park. Melius won four more times at the APS and scored an incredible six second place feature finishes at the track, including five times trailing Billy Johnson at the checkered flag. Melius also won twice at the newly designed Sheboygan County Fairgrounds, now known as the Plymouth Dirt Track. He also scored a popular hometown victory on July 4 at Slinger.
       Nine more feature wins came in 1951, running a partial schedule. In 1952, his final season in Badger Melius won four features at Angell Park, bringing his Badger feature career win total to 37, including twenty-one at Angell Park Speedway. He also won midget track championships at Slinger (1949), and Angell Park (1950).
       A heavy machine operator by trade Melius had the chance to race the Southeastern Wisconsin Modified circuit which ran six nights a week. "The midgets were great, but besides Badger twice a week I needed to travel to Chicago, other Illinois tracks along with Detroit, or St. Louis to race and make more money. The modified gave me the chance to race almost every night, every week during the season and be back home in my own bed. It presented a better option for my racing and raising my family" commented Melius during a March 2008 interview at the Wisconsin Motorsports Show.
      His modified car included eight area overall championships, numerous track titles including five at Slinger Speedway. In a racing era where record keeping was "sketchy" at best with several tracks, it's estimated Melius won over 200 feature victories before retiring in 1967.      
      He is survived by his seven children; Sharon Wagner, Jean Woerner, Michael Melius, Richard (Joan) Melius, Rex (Joan) Melius, Linda (Tony) Wenninger, and Kenneth (Barb) Melius. He is also survived by twelve grandchildren, thirteen great-grandchildren, and other relatives and friends. Miles was preceded in death by his parents, siblings, loving wife June Melius (nee Schneider), son-in-law Bill Wagner, son-in-law Harry Woerner, and grandson Andrew Melius. Honoring his request there will not be a funeral, only a private burial.
        A celebration of his life and tribute to his legendary racing career will be held at the Wisconsin Automotive Museum & Short Track Hall of Fame in Hartford on Saturday September 21st from 10:00 AM until 3:00 PM. Memorials in honor of Miles "The Mouse" Melius may be made to the "Hall of Fame" and can be forwarded to Dick Melius- 5538 Arthur Road, Slinger WI, 53086.

"Seavey, Ray, Zelski, Papke winners at Pepsi Nationals"


 
By Bryan Gapinski
 
Sun Prairie, Wis., July 7---Logan Seavey (Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League), Davey Ray (Zimbrick Chevrolet of Sun Prairie Badger Midget Racing Series), Ryan Zelski (The Auto Meter Wisconsin WingLESS Sprint Series presented by Gandrud Chevrolet Performance Parts), and Drew Papke (Wis. Dirt Racing Legends Series) claimed feature victories during the 38th annual Pepsi Midget Nationals, Sunday Night at Angell Park Speedway.
 
       Midget auto racing's third oldest continuous running event "The Pepsi Midget Nationals", saw Tucker Klaasmeyer take the lead at the start, with Seavey starting in fifth position. Two cautions on Lap 7 and 11, kept the field bunched up. Seavey took over second place one lap after the final restart, and one lap later passed Klaasmeyer for the lead exiting Turn 4.
       Seavey's two second lead over Cannon McIntosh was erased with the leader spending the final ten laps in traffic. McIntosh pulled to the rear bumper of Seavey, with three laps remaining but couldn't make a pass for the lead sucessful. Seavey finished three car lengths ahead of McIntosh. Klaasmeyer, last year's winner Tanner Carrick and Chase Jones completed the top five.
       In the Badger Midget feature fast qualifier Justin Peck took the lead at the start/finish line to complete lap 1, and began increasing his lead over the field each lap. Ray moved into third place on Lap 3, and one lap later was in second place. The pair pulled away from the field, with Ray challenging for the top position several times.
       Peck held a 1.2 second lead at the midway point. The events only caution appeared for a multi-car tangle on Lap 15. Ray and Peck ran the "thin cushion" to perfection over the final five laps, with Ray taking the lead exiting Turn 2, with two laps remaining. Ray driving the Mark Ray owned DRC/Hona No. 3 finished 1.04 seconds ahead of Peck, followed by Chase Jones, Zach Boden, and Chase McDermand.
       Jack Routson leads McDermand by twenty-three-points entering the July 20-21 doubleheader which sees the series visit Sycamore (Ill.) Speedway on Saturday Night July 20, then Sunday Night July 21 at Angell Park Speedway.
Ryan Zelski took the lead on the fourth lap, and survived a late race restart to win the 20-lap Sprint Car feature. The event started with a "wild" eight-car accident on the opening lap entering Turn 1. Derek Crane who led the events first four laps, finished second, followed by Allen Hafford, Jimmy Siva, and former series champion Jordan Mattson.
       The Legends feature saw front row starter Warren Ropp jump into the lead at the start. Ropp increased his lead each lap, over a tightly bunched pack of cars racing for second place. Ryan Mech escaped injury in a series of flips, on Lap 17, bringing the event to a stop, erasing Ropp's almost five second advantage.
       Drew Papke passed Ropp for the lead entering Turn 1, on the final lap. Papke finished one-car length ahead of Ropp, with Ryan Sullivan, Dominick Troyan, and Dan Troyan completing the top five.

MUST SEE XTREME SPRINT CAR SERIES

Podium Lifts Anthony McCune To MSR Point Lead

BIRCH RUN, Mich. – Anthony McCune’s quiet podium finish during Friday night’s Must See Racing Sprint Car Series presented by Engine Pro feature at Birch Run Speedway might not have seemed like much at first glance.

However, it could go a long way towards determining the season championship later in the year.

The nephew of four-time Must See Racing champion Jimmy McCune raced his way from fifth on the grid to a third-place finish during the Firecracker Night of Speed 30-lap feature at the four-tenths-mile oval.

Anthony McCune’s run, combined with his uncle’s failure to start the main event due to engine trouble discovered after his heat race, meant that the younger McCune found himself catapulted into the points lead for the first time in his young sprint car career.

In fact, it’s the first time the points sheet has had a name other than Jimmy McCune at the top of the order since Aug. 7, 2015 – the day before the Toledo, Ohio veteran took the lead for good on the way to his first of four consecutive series championships.

That nugget wasn’t lost on Anthony McCune after Friday’s race, though he admitted his primary focus had been on going to victory lane.

“It’s definitely a different position, one that I’ve never been in, for sure,” noted Anthony McCune. “I wasn’t even thinking about the points all day, though, to be honest. We just wanted to go out and have a good day, maybe get a win if the car was there. We’ve been close a few times, just not close enough.

“To have the points lead is cool, though. The problem now is that we have to figure out how to keep it.”

Anthony McCune kept his No. 8 Abe’s Auto Parts/B&B Machinery Movers sprinter inside the top five all race long after starting there, though it wasn’t until a restart with five to go that he was able to close up to and subsequently pass Charlie Schultz for the show position.

Following on from his runner-up finish at the season opener in May at Anderson (Ind.) Speedway, it was the fourth-generation driver’s second podium in two races to kick off the year.

“I had to kind of dive in on Charlie a bit there, but at the end of the day, it was a move that I felt I had to make to get where I needed to be,” Anthony McCune said. “It worked, thankfully, and we were able to bring home another solid finish.”

Anthony McCune leads Schultz by 10 points in the standings, with Jimmy McCune sitting back in seventh, 43 points adrift and in the lowest position he’s been in points in four full years.

The new championship leader isn’t focused on where his rivals are right now, though. He’s just worried about making his own team stronger.

“I can’t control what anyone else does, so I’m going to stay focused on my car,” said Anthony McCune. “If we do that, then hopefully the points will take care of themselves as we go here.”

The next Must See Racing Sprint Car Series event is scheduled for Aug. 10 at Michigan’s Berlin Raceway.
