Kerry Madsen Extends Top-10 Streak After Earning Three More in Central Pennsylvania

 

Inside Line Promotions - ABBOTTSTOWN, Pa. (Sept. 21, 2020) - Kerry Madsen scored a trio of top 10s in Central Pennsylvania last weekend.

 

The Killer Instinct Crossbows supported team has earned a top 10 in seven straight races and during 11 of the last 12 starts, giving Big Game Motorsports 34 top 10s this season.

"Our car is great," Madsen said. "I feel like if we keep hanging in there and doing what we're doing it's going to lead to some wins."

 

Madsen made the first of two visits to Lincoln Speedway last Wednesday. He qualified third quickest and finished second in a heat race. That lined the team up on the inside of the fifth row for the A Main.

 

"On Wednesday we were really good, but we had a mechanical issue in the heat and missed the feature redraw," he said. "We ran pretty good, but didn't advance as far as we should in the feature."

 

Madsen ended with an eighth-place showing.

 

The team headed to Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., on Friday for the first of two straight Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 races. Madsen qualified third quickest overall and placed second in his heat race to advance into a dash.

 

"We were having a good night and drew fourth in a dash," he said. "We finished there and I thought we were pretty good in the feature, but the track took rubber. I didn't get as much as I should have at the start before it laid rubber."

 

Madsen finished eighth for the second straight night.

 

The weekend wrapped up on Saturday at Lincoln Speedway for the Dirt Classic. Madsen qualified 19th quickest out of the 50-plus drivers. He then placed third and fifth, respectively, in twin heat races to garner enough points to lock into the 18th starting position in the main event.

 

"We didn't qualify as good as we should have and in the second round of heat races we needed to advance," he said. "We were really good in the A Main. I think we would have got a little further up the pecking order, but it laid rubber so that was that."

 

Madsen rallied from 18th to 10th, which earned him the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars.

 

"For me, it's really hard to make up any ground at Lincoln," he said. "I was really good early so I was pleased with that."

 

This is a busy week for the team with races on Tuesday and Wednesday at Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, during the Governors Reign with the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1. The plan for this weekend is to tackle World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series races on Friday at Wayne County Speedway in Orrville, Ohio, and Saturday at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa., for the Commonwealth Clash.

 

QUICK RESULTS -

 

Sept. 16 - Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa. - Qualifying: 3; Heat race: 2 (1); Feature: 8 (9).

 

Sept. 18 - Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa. - Qualifying: 3; Heat race: 2 (2); Dash: 4 (4); Feature: 8 (7).

Hill Shows Improvement Throughout Hockett/McMillin Memorial

Inside Line Promotions - WHEATLAND, Mo. (Sept. 21, 2020) - Alex Hill made improvement throughout the 10th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial hosted by Lucas Oil Speedway last weekend.

The Hill's Racing Team driver fell just a few positions short of making the A Main on Saturday night after three nights of stout competition with a nearly 80-car field at the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event.

"We didn't start off very well on the first night," she said. "Our notes from last year didn't seem to work well this year. The track was different this year with a curb around the bottom. That took some getting used to and I eventually got comfortable with it by the final night."

Hill moved forward in all three of her races on Saturday. She went from eighth to sixth in her qualifier and fifth to fourth in a B Main. In the Last Chance Qualifier - her final opportunity to make the event's biggest race - she raced from 12th to ninth, falling three spots shy of the final transfer position.

"We kept improving, but we just started too far back to get a transfer spot to the A Main," she said.

Hill had a challenging evening on the opening night last Thursday when she finished ninth in her heat race and eighth in her qualifier. She advanced from 16th to 10th in the B Main.

Friday began well for her with a heat race victory.

"I started second and got a really good start," she said. "I was able to get the lead right away and hold it to the finish so that was nice."

Hill followed up her heat race win with a ninth-place run in her qualifier and a sixth-place finish in the B Main after starting eighth.

Hill will take this week off before competing in the 33rd annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., Oct. 2-3.

INDIANAPOLIS (Sept. 22, 2020) – Dreyer & Reinbold Racing today announced its entry for the Oct. 2-3 INDYCAR Harvest GP doubleheader weekend at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in rounds 12-13 of the 2020 NTT INDYCAR SERIES with new partner, Oil2Soil®, on the No. 24 DRR Chevrolet for driver Sage Karam.

 

It marks the third 2020 appearance for the Dreyer & Reinbold Racing team at the legendary “Brickyard” racing facility with its entry at the 2.439-mile, 13-turn road circuit inside the famed 2.5-mile oval. The INDYCAR Harvest GP also will be the third weekend for the NTT INDYCAR SERIES at IMS with a doubleheader road racing event.

 

DRR previously announced its expansion of an Indy 500-only racing program when the team competed at the INDYCAR GP with the No. 24 DRR WIX Filters Chevrolet and driver Sage Karam. For the past six years, DRR has competed only at the Indianapolis 500. From 2000 to 2013, the Dennis Reinbold-owned organization competed in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES full-time.

 

Oil2Soil®is the quickest, most cost-effective and environmentally friendly absorbent for oil and lubricant cleanup, offering numerous loose fill and spill kit products. Oil2Soil® products are extremely effective in absorbing oils and hydrocarbons, while offering savings in areas of time, labor and waste disposal costs. Oil2Soil® is excellent for oil spills, automotive lubricants, garages, shops, and paint spills.  The Harvest GP will be the first major partnership for DRR with Oil2Soil® Organic Peat Moss Absorbents at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. More information about Oil2Soil and their family of products can be found at www.oil2soil.com.

 

Driver Sage Karam competed at the INDYCAR GP on July 4 and DRR campaigned two cars with Karam and J.R. Hildebrand in the 104th running of the Indianapolis 500 on August 23.

 

“Earlier this year, we announced our team would run more races in 2020,” said Reinbold. “We were at St. Petersburg ready for that event when the COVID-19 closed that weekend for the race. We then came back at the INDYCAR GP for our first road race in seven years. I think we learned a lot about the road course car and looked to run another race. So, the Harvest GP doubleheader fit in well for our operation and we’re excited to introduce Oil2Soil to IndyCar racing. Sage also improved throughout the July 4 weekend and we believe he will have strong runs at the Harvest GP.  We look forward to the two-race weekend at IMS.”

 

Karam is anxious for his return to the IMS road circuit after the July 4 event.

 

“I’m very excited to return for the Harvest GP at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with Oil2Soil as a primary partner,” said Karam, the 2013 Indy Lights champion. “The DRR team did a great job preparing for its first road race in seven years and we improved each session we had at the July 4 INDYCAR GP. We had bad luck in the race, but I think we showed that we gained speed with the No. 24 DRR Chevy. Our goal is to qualifying better from the July race. It was a physical race in July with the new aeroscreen and the hot temperatures. It will be cooler in October. I can’t wait to hit the IMS road course again.”  

 

The Dreyer and Reinbold families have a storied history at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway dating back to 1927 when Reinbold’s grandfather, Floyd ‘Pop’ Dreyer, was a crewman in the Indy 500 for the Duesenberg team.  The INDYCAR Harvest GP doubleheader also pays tribute to a storied IMS event, the “Harvest Classic” held in September of 1916.

 

The Harvest Classic was the only racing event held outside of May at IMS from 1911 through 1993. The event featured three races, all won by legendary driver Johnny Aitken.

 

The INDYCAR Harvest GP event will also include the SRO America sports cars and the Indianapolis 8 Hour race as part of the Intercontinental GT Challenge Powered by Pirelli on Oct. 4. A full on-track schedule spanning Wednesday, Sept. 30 to Sunday, Oct. 4 is available at IMS.com/HarvestGP.

 

Big Week for Bacon Begins on Tuesday

Lonnie Wheatley, WINCHESTER, Ind. (September 22, 2020) – In the midst of a torrid battle for a third career USAC Sprint Car championship, Brady Bacon is set for a busy week of racing action at three tracks in three different cars.

It begins with Bacon in winged 410-ci action on Tuesday and Wednesday after being voted into Eldora Speedways’ “Governor’s Reign” by the fans.  Piloting the Fatheadz Eyewear No. 69, Bacon will vie for Tuesday’s $10,000 winner’s share and then Wednesday’s $52,000 payday at the invitational event.

Then, after an idle night, “The Macho Man” is in for double-duty with the USAC National Sprint Cars and USAC National Midgets at Gas City I-69 Speedway on Friday night and then Kokomo Speedway on Saturday night.

Bacon will pilot the Hoffman Racing Fatheadz Eyewear No. 69 entry in the Sprint Car portion and the Hayward Motorsports Oilfire No. 19 in the Midget portion.  While the Hoffman entry is Bacon’s standard USAC Sprint Car ride, Bacon gained the seat of the No. 19 Midget for the remainder of the season.

Bacon goes into the week off a USAC Sprint Car weekend that netted finishes of fifth at the Terre Haute Action Track on Friday and then eighth at Haubstadt’s Tri-State Speedway on Saturday night.

After timing in second-quickest at Terre Haute, Bacon gridded the feature event fifth and held the position throughout the 30-lapper.

Bacon then worked his way forward from the 12th starting position in Saturday’s 40-lap Haubstadt Hustler to salvage an eighth-place showing.

Bacon enters this weekend’s USAC Sprint Car action just eight points off the lead pace.  Only one USAC Sprint Car event remains after this weekend’s pair of events.

Brady Bacon Racing is bolstered by the support of partners including Hoffman Auto Racing, Fatheadz Eyewear, Champion Oil, Gene Franckowiak, Drivewfx.com, Elliott’s Custom Trailers, ATC Trailers, Tel-Star Technologies, Dragonfly Aviation, Lykins Oil, Triple X Race Co., Hoosier Tire, XYZ Machine, Heath Clips Lawn Care, FK Indy, Engler Machine and Tool, FK Rod Ends, Specialty Rigging, Keizer Wheels, Purple Heart Foundation, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, Smiley’s Racing Products, R&R Enterprises, DMI, ProGlide Coatings, Chalk Stixx, Wilwood Engineering, Lajoie Seats, Smith Precision Products, Allstar Performance, Simpson Racing Products, MyRacePass, Schroth Racing, Saldana Racing Products, KSE Racing Products, King Racing Products and Schoenfeld Headers.

Reutzel Back in All Star Victory Lane – Takes on All Stars & Outlaws this Week

Lonnie Wheatley, CLUTE, Texas (September 22, 2020) – Aaron Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team bolstered their All Star Circuit of Champions points lead over the weekend with his 14th overall win of the 2020 season.

It was a three-race week which included a fourth-place finish in last Wednesday night’s Weldon Sterner Memorial at Lincoln Speedway.  A pair of All Star events followed with a Friday night triumph at Williams Grove Speedway and then a runner-up finish in Saturday night’s “Dirt Classic” at Lincoln Speedway.

It sets the stage for a full week of racing with the All Star Circuit of Champions and World of Outlaws.

The All Stars are back in action with Eldora Speedway’s “Governor’s Reign” in Rossburg, OH, on Tuesday and Wednesday.  Reutzel and the Folkens Brothers Trucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X Sprint Car team then shift into World of Outlaws action at Indiana’s Plymouth Speedway on Thursday night and then western Pennsylvania’s Lernerville Speedway on Saturday night.

Reutzel kicked off last week’s set of events by topping the speed charts in qualifying on Wednesday night at Lincoln aboard the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment entry and then finishing out the night fourth in the feature after starting fifth.

Back into points action for Friday’s Jack Gunn Memorial at Williams Grove Speedway, Reutzel won his heat race to earn a Dash starting position aboard the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspension entry  and then led the final 17 laps of the feature event for his 14th win of the season.

“We got a little lucky at Williams Grove, we didn’t qualify very good but that put us on the front row of our heat and we were able to win that to get in a Dash,“ Reutzel explains.  “We had a really, really good car for the feature, I could run it anywhere on the track that I needed to.”

Back to Lincoln Speedway on Saturday night for the $20,000-to-win Dirt Classic, Reutzel topped his qualifying group in the Fischer Body Shop machine.  He then posted a runner-up finish in his first heat and then sixth in his second heat in the twin-heat event.

“Lincoln started out good, we ran second to Kyle (Larson) in the first heat, but on the second heat we missed it with the car,” Reutzel recalls.  “If we would have been one position better in that second heat, that would have put us on the front row of the feature.”

Instead, Reutzel gridded the feature inside the third row.  Reutzel worked his way forward to post a runner-up finish for the night.

“I got up to third when it rubbered up, then I was able to get second on a restart when the guy that was there slipped out of the rubber,” Reutzel wraps up.

Three tracks await Reutzel and crew this week and he has put the BRM No. 87 in victory lane in his last visit to each of the tracks.

The “Governor’s Reign” at Eldora Speedway is Reutzel’s first visit to the Ohio facility since putting the finishing touches on his second All Star Circuit of Champions title last September.

After the All Star double at Eldora, Reutzel takes on the World of Outlaws at a pair of tracks at which he has been unbeaten in All Star Circuit of Champions action over the past three seasons.  Reutzel has been victorious in each of the past three years at Indiana’s Plymouth Speedway and topped 2018 and 2019 events at Lernerville Speedway.

2020 Quick Stats:  72 races, 14 wins, 36 top-fives, 49 top-tens.

Tuesday and Wednesday – All Star Circuit of Champions at Eldora Speedway’s (Rossburg, OH) “Governor’s Reign”

Wilson Returning to a Favorite Track This Week During All Star Event at Eldora Speedway

 

Inside Line Promotions - ABBOTTSTOWN, Pa. (Sept. 22, 2020) - Greg Wilson is heading to a home track this week when Eldora Speedway hosts the Governors Reign with the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1.

 

Wilson has guided his Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics, DNC Hydraulics and Gear Off Road backed team to three All Star wins, a World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series triumph and nine 360ci winged sprint car victories in his career at the high-banked oval near Rossburg, Ohio.

Wilson posted a pair of top 10s at Eldora Speedway last year, including a sixth-place outing during his most recent visit a year ago in September.

 

"Growing up in Ohio and going there and watching as a kid, I'm thankful to be able to race at Eldora," he said. "I still get butterflies and get wound up every time I go to there. I think that in turn has helped me focus when I go there. And we've been fortunate to have some luck and some success, which helps with your confidence when you head to a track."

 

Wilson highlighted a four-race trip to Central Pennsylvania last weekend with an 11th-place result last Thursday at BAPS Motor Speedway in York Haven.

 

"We tried a bunch of stuff every night to help motor-wise and car-wise," he said. "In the races I've run in Central Pennsylvania over time we've never been all that great. With that being said I think the Pennsylvania tracks helped magnify certain issues you maybe don't see in other parts of the country. After having three or four different guys help the last few weeks and doing a lot of different things to the car, which is some of the stuff I wouldn't have done, we're the same speed no matter what.

 

"I know my normal base deal for the setup should be close at Eldora. We'll have our best engine in the car. We should know after two nights if we're okay or what we need to work on."

Sams III Improves During Second Time at Hockett/McMillin Memorial

 

Inside Line Promotions - WHEATLAND, Mo. (Sept. 22, 2020) - Danny Sams III had a fast race car throughout the 10th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial, improving on his results during his second time of tackling the marquee Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event.

 

The Sams LaMountain Racing driver was one of more than 75 drivers who began the action at Lucas Oil Speedway on Thursday. Sams III charged from sixth to second place in a heat race. He picked up a position in a qualifier to finish fifth. That locked him into the main event in the 15th starting spot.

"The first night I made some good moves to go sixth to second in the heat race and I passed one car in the qualifier," he said. "In the feature the track got rubber down and we didn't expect that. We missed the setup and were too tight by a mile."

 

Sams III salvaged a 19th-place finish.

 

He returned to the oval on Friday. A fourth-place result in a heat race was followed by a third-place outing in a qualifier, a fifth-place run in a B Main and a 12th-place finish in the Last Chance Showdown.

 

"I had a good start in my heat and was up to second, but it got called back," he said. "The other drivers around me saw what I did and took that lane on the second start. In the qualifier the car was a little off and in the B Main everybody was pretty equal. It came down to the Last Chance Qualifier and it was the same thing. We were quick, but not quick enough."

 

The weekend wrapped up on Saturday with Sams III ending fourth in a qualifier, which put him on the outside of the front row in a B Main.

 

"Going into turn three as we were coming to the green flag the guy on the pole gassed it up and ran over my left front, which knocked my nose wing down," he said. "I was holding on once we started. I was able to maintain second for a few laps, but once a couple of drivers got by me it was game over. If I would have finished where I started I would have been starting in the top six in the Last Chance Qualifier. I think we would have had a good shot at making the main event if that happened, but it didn't work out."

 

The handling on the race car got even worse once Sams III was in dirty air as he faded to an eighth-place finish.

 

The team will take this weekend off before returning to action Oct. 2-3 at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., for the Short Track Nationals with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour.

SawBlade.com's Bogucki Posts Pair of Top 10s During Hockett/McMillin Memorial

 

Inside Line Promotions - WHEATLAND, Mo. (Sept. 22, 2020) - Scott Bogucki produced a podium finish and a pair of top 10s last weekend during the 10 th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway.

 

The SawBlade.com sponsored competitor faced off against 75-plus drivers during the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour tripleheader, which began last Thursday. Bogucki charged from ninth to win a heat race and from sixth to third place in a qualifier to garner the most points. That gave him the pole position for the A Main.

"The first night I wasn't tight enough in the feature," he said after finishing third. "I thought the track had taken rubber before we got out there. I was too free until the rubber came in."

 

Friday's second preliminary night featured another efficient run as Bogucki hustled from fourth to second place in a heat race and from fifth to third place in a qualifier. He capped the night with an eighth-place finish in the main event.

 

"We were okay, a little on the free side," he said. "I lost some spots and got some back. It was an average night."

 

Bogucki ranked fourth in preliminary points to lock himself into the fourth starting position in Saturday's A Main. He maintained a top five throughout the race and was running fourth on the final lap when he got into the cushion wrong in turns three and four. That upset his race car and he jumped the cushion, culminating in a flip. Bogucki was credited with a 16 th-place result.

 

"I ran out of fuel as I ran into turn three," he said. "You had to hit the cushion with the wheels spinning. The engine sputtered and the car got on the right front, over the cushion and turned over. That was really disappointing.

 

"After last year's run with me going to the hospital, I was like, 'Cool, I finally beat this place.' Then I turned over in the same spot. That's racing. Thankfully we didn't really tear the car up."

 

Bogucki plans on competing this Saturday at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa, during the Fall Haul with the Sprint Invaders.

Old School Racing's Tankersley Delivers Career-Best World of Outlaws Run at Devil's Bowl Speedway

 

Inside Line Promotions - MESQUITE, Texas (Sept. 22, 2020) - Channin Tankersley captured his career-best result with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series last Saturday during the Texas Outlaw Nationals at Devil's Bowl Speedway.

 

It was quite a rebound following a frustrating Friday night for the Old School Racing driver. The team hauled to Lawton Speedway in Lawton, Okla., but was unable to race because of mechanical woes.

"I was pretty disappointed with Friday," Tankersley said. "Going in there, that's a pretty good track for us and I was really looking forward to seeing how we compared to those guys on a smaller bullring. We had some mechanical problems so we had to sit the night out. Thankfully we got it fixed for Saturday."

 

Tankersley qualified 17th quickest on Saturday at Devil's Bowl Speedway. He then advanced from sixth to fifth place in a heat race to lock into the 14th starting position for the main event.

 

"We started off the night a little hesitant, hoping the problem was resolved," he said. "It ran good so then we could focus on trying to get the car right. As the night went on I felt like we got better. I made a few driving errors on my end that cost us potentially a top 10. For the most part it was a pretty solid night for us."

 

Tankersley's 12th-place outing bested his previous top Outlaw result of 17th.

 

"It's kind of reassuring," he said. "With me not running as much we're already behind the eight ball. Whenever you can go out and decently run with those guys it fills that void of questioning do we have our stuff well enough to compete with these guys. It's definitely a confidence boost."

Daniel Captures Career-Best World of Outlaws Result at Lawton Speedway

 

Inside Line Promotions - MESQUITE, Texas (Sept. 22, 2020) - Mason Daniel earned his career-best World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series result last Friday during his debut at Lawton Speedway.

 

Daniel's 11th-place outing was followed by a 15th -place run on Saturday at Devil's Bowl Speedway during the Texas Outlaw Nationals. It marked his career-best result at that track and was also the first weekend of the season to feature back-to-back top 15s for Daniel.

"We had misfortune the previous two weekends getting in wrecks so it was great that we had a strong showing in both main events last weekend," he said. "It means we're going in the right direction. We can put brand new cars together and there's no changes between our cars so that gives me a lot of confidence. All the parts are the same between our cars, but not all cars handle the same. My guys are working hard and doing a great job."

 

Daniel opened the weekend by qualifying 14th quickest at Lawton Speedway in Lawton, Okla., on Friday. He then finished fifth in a heat race to lock into the 14th starting position for the main event.

 

"Lawton is a tricky track," he said. "There were some holes in the middle of the corner that biked everybody. I found a way to get above it and not bike the car and then stay smooth around the bottom and the middle of the track."

 

Daniel's 11th-place run bested his previous top World of Outlaws result of 13th.

 

The weekend concluded on Saturday at Devil's Bowl Speedway, where Daniel qualified 18th quickest. A sixth-place result in a heat race started him 18th in the A Main.

 

"It was okay up until we got lapped," he said. "It's tough when you start so far back because even if you're moving forward the leader is still catching you. If we didn't get lapped we would have had a stronger finish. On that last caution three cars got put ahead of us because they were on the lead lap. We passed two more before the end of the race, but they didn't count. Both nights we were better later in the race, especially at Devil's Bowl."

 

Daniel was credited with a 15th-place finish, which marked his sixth top 15 of the season.

 

The team returns to World of Outlaws competition this weekend with a trio of shows running Thursday at Plymouth Speedway in Plymouth, Ind.; Friday at Wayne County Speedway in Orrville, Ohio; and Saturday at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa., for the Commonwealth Clash.

 

It will be Daniel's first official race at Plymouth Speedway and Wayne County Speedway after earlier events this season were rained out. Daniel made his debut at Lernerville Speedway in July.

Starks Sets New Track Record at Skagit Speedway and Nets Hard Charger Award at Huset's Speedway

 

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (Sept. 21, 2020) - A new track record and a Hard Charger Award highlighted last weekend for Trey Starks.

 

The action began on Thursday at Skagit Speedway in Alger, Wash., where Starks piloted his family owned car during the 360ci winged sprint car season finale at the high-banked oval. His quick time in qualifying was a new track record for the division.

"We had a really good night going at Skagit, setting a track record and advancing from fourth to third place in our heat race," he said. "I rolled the No. 6 for the feature inversion so that started me in the third row for the main event.

 

"I was rolling really good. I was battling for the lead and got tagged from behind and spun around. That was a bummer. We went to the back with 12 laps to go and made it back to eighth. I felt like we had the fastest car. We just had a mishap and didn't end up getting it done. We've had a fast car the handful of times we've gone there this year. That's a good feeling with this little operation we have left."

 

Starks, who was up to second when he was spun out midway through the race, rallied from the rear of the field to finish eighth.

 

He then joined the Gobrecht Motorsports team at Huset's Speedway to run the two-day DeKalb/Asgrow Power Series Nationals presented by Casey's General Stores with the Midwest Sprint Touring Series and the Midwest Power Series.

 

"We had a fast car both nights," he said. "On Friday we were quick in hot laps and ended up blowing a power steering line in qualifying when we pushed out so I didn't get the laps we needed. In the heat race we had more steering issues and I ended up dropping to fourth. We got it sorted out for the feature. We picked up a couple of cars before the track took rubber. It wasn't a bad night, but we didn't quite have the luck we needed."

 

Starks placed 12th in the A Main.

 

The weekend concluded on Saturday when nearly 50 drivers tackled the event.

 

"We qualified quick time in our group and had a really fast car," Starks said. "I didn't get a good start in the heat race and got slowed up a bit racing for fourth and fell to sixth. We had to come through the B Main. We had a really fast car and put down some good lap times. We ran a quicker time in the B Main than we did on our qualifying lap. Then in the feature we started 21st and picked our way through the field. We really came alive toward the end. We were really good on restarts and in open track. The last lap was the only lap I had all race in open air and we were really, really fast. It was a really fun track with a big, gnarly curb. It was a track you had to grit your teeth and run it as hard as you could. I like racing on those types of tracks."

 

That showed as Starks hustled from 21st to a fourth-place finish. It was his fifth top five of the season and earned the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars.

Kaleb Johnson Charges from Last to Top-10 Finish at Power Series Nationals

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (Sept. 21, 2020) - Kaleb Johnson charged from the 24th starting position to score a top-10 finish at Huset's Speedway last Saturday during the final night of the DeKalb/Asgrow Power Series Nationals presented by Casey's General Stores.

"Our weekend went okay," said Johnson, who rallied back from a crash at the event the previous night. "There were a lot of good cars. Friday was disappointing. We wanted to make the A Main on the final night. We did that and then we passed a lot of cars, so we were pretty happy with the way we finished the weekend."

Johnson's evening didn't get off to the start he hoped for when he qualified 16th out of 24 cars in his group during the Midwest Sprint Touring Series and the Midwest Power Series event on Saturday.

"The car didn't feel right in hot laps and we didn't have a lot of time to change things before time trials," he said. "But the track was pretty greasy so I didn't really know what to change. I ended up spinning the tires most of the way around the track during qualifying."

Johnson's qualifying time slotted him in the eighth starting position in his heat race with the top five advancing to the A Main.

"The track was still pretty heavy for the heat race so we felt pretty good about moving forward a couple of spots to finish sixth," he said. "We missed the transfer for the A Main by one position, but it gave us a good starting spot for the B Main. We started and finished fourth in the B Main and that got us the last starting position in the A Main."

Johnson was able to advance early in the night's main event until a miscue reset his race.

"My primary concern was not getting lapped early in the race because I was starting 24th on a short track where the leader has a long head start," he said. "I was able to pass a few cars early, but then I missed the bottom around Lap 9 and spun out and had to restart at the back again. But after that I was able to make the top work and got by quite a few cars. It was a lot of fun and I was happy to finish 10th after restarting last."

Friday evening began better than Saturday for Johnson, but the upside was short-lived. After qualifying 10th quickest in his group, Johnson's night ended early on the first lap of his heat race.

"I was running the top in turns three and four and Tim Kaeding was on the bottom," he said. "I think he hit a slimy spot coming out of four and it pushed his car up the track. He left me enough room, but I got over the cushion and into the wall pretty hard. It broke the rear end and about every bolt-on part in that area of the car. I was fortunate that it didn't flip. We probably could've fixed it, but we didn't feel it was worth it to start last in the C Main."

Last weekend marked the end of the 2020 racing season for Johnson.

Amantea Picks Up Third Win of the Season at Hamlin Speedway

 

Inside Line Promotions - HAMLIN, Pa. (Sept. 21, 2020) - Joey Amantea recorded his third victory of the season at Hamlin Speedway last Saturday to cap the week.

 

Amantea also finished 20th on Wednesday at Shellhammer Dirt Track in Shoemakersville, Pa., where he gained laps prior to a pair of races this week.

"It was the best of both world's this week as we got another win, but also wrecked a car," he said. "The good news is we had a chance to win on both nights and it just continues what's been a great season for us."

 

Amantea made his first trip in more than a year to Shellhammer Dirt Track, kicking off the action last Wednesday night by passing four cars to finish third in a heat race and secure the ninth starting spot in the A Main. He advanced as high as third during the feature, but late-race contact while battling for second sent him spinning into the infield and ended his night early. He was credited with finishing 20th.

 

"We were really fast right out the gate and with a couple more laps we likely win our heat race," he said. "We were up to third by Lap 18 in the feature and we had a chance at second and got chopped on a late restart. On one hand it is nice to know we had speed right off the bat, but it's disappointing to have nothing to show for it."

 

Amantea won't have to dwell on the missed opportunity for long as he'll have two chances at redemption this week. He's set to visit the track this Wednesday night before tackling the $1,000-to-win Shellhammer Slam IV on Sunday.

 

Amantea finished off last week on Saturday night at Hamlin Speedway, where he won a heat race from the pole position. The feature redraw started him on the inside of the second row for the feature and he quickly moved into second. Amantea used the outside of a double-file restart to take the lead and he went unchallenged in the closing laps for the victory.

 

The triumph made him a perfect 3-for-3 in races at Hamlin Speedway this season and is a new personal high for wins in a season.

 

"We've been great at Hamlin all season so I expected to be in contention right away," he said. "To go undefeated in starts there this year is pretty special and it's a great way to end the year there."

 

Amantea is set for four nights of racing this week. Along with the two nights at Shellhammer Dirt Track, Amantea will compete in wingless micro sprint competition at Linda's Speedway in Jonestown, Pa., on Friday. Saturday will mark a return behind the wheel of a 360ci sprint car with the USAC East Coast Wingless Sprint Car Series at Bridgeport Speedway in Swedesboro, N.J.

 

While this won't be his first start behind the wheel of a 360ci sprint car, this week will mark his first time behind the wheel of one carrying his familiar No. 88j. He's hoping the change of numbers will serve as a confidence booster as he prepares for the future.

 

"We're going to change the number and just kind of get that sense of familiarity on the sprint car side of things," he said. "While we're focused on winning as much as possible in the micro sprint now, this is kind of the first step toward looking to the future and I'm excited to see where this path leads us."

Sept. 16 - Shellhammer Dirt Track in Shoemakersville, Pa. - Heat race: 3 (7); Feature: 20 (9).

Dylan Lupton Returns to DGR-Crosley
Starting at Las Vegas Motor Speedway
MOORESVILLE, N.C.: DGR-Crosley announced today that Wilton, Calif., native Dylan Lupton (@LuptonDylan) will return to the team for a minimum of three NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series (NGROTS) races this season beginning with Friday night’s World of Westgate 200 at Las Vegas (Nev.) Motor Speedway.
In addition to Las Vegas, Lupton will drive the No. 17 Ford F-150 at Texas Motor Speedway on Sun., Oct. 25 and the season finale at Phoenix (Ariz.) Raceway on Fri., Nov. 6.

 
Ten-time NGROTS veteran winning crew chief Marcus Richmond will lead Lupton’s efforts.

 
Additionally, Lupton will return to the ARCA Menards Series and compete in its season finale at Kansas Speedway for DGR-Crosley on Fri., Oct. 16.

 
“I am excited to return to DGR-Crosley for a few races this season,” said Lupton. “We had success together last season and I’m confident that we can build on that starting at Las Vegas and hopefully contend for wins throughout my schedule.”

 

 
DGR-Crosley co-owner David Gilliland is looking forward to Lupton’s return.

 
“We are happy to have Dylan back with us at DGR-Crosley for a few NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series races this year,” offered Gilliland. “We had some good races with him last year, especially at the mile-and-a-half tracks, so we’re looking forward to seeing what he can do with Marcus (Richmond, crew chief). I think they will be a solid combination and have great potential.”
Lupton is no stranger to NASCAR.  

 
A NASCAR Next alumnus, Lupton has experience in all three of NASCAR’s national series levels, including four starts in the NASCAR Cup Series. The Californian also has 35 NASCAR Xfinity Series starts under his belt.

 
A two-time winner in the ARCA Menards Series West division, Lupton had a six-race Truck Series opportunity with DGR-Crosley last year and earned one top-five and three top-10 finishes, including a career-best fifth at Kentucky Speedway and additional top-10 efforts at Chicagoland (Ill.) Speedway and Las Vegas.  

 
His sixth race of the season at Homestead-Miami (Fla.) Speedway last November was cut short after inclement weather canceled qualifying and left Lupton on the sidelines despite practicing inside the top five.

 
“I feel like we still have some unfinished business from Homestead last year,” added Lupton. “DGR-Crosley brought me a fast truck, but unfortunately rain kept us from making the race. Hopefully, we can go to Las Vegas and finish what we started and have a successful race.”

 
While juggling an aggressive racing schedule, Lupton, 26, also graduated in 2016 with a bachelor’s degree in Business Finance from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.

 
A partnership announcement for Lupton at Las Vegas is forthcoming.

Brian Brown Focused on Flipping Luck During Marquee Events This Week

 

Inside Line Promotions - ABBOTTSTOWN, Pa. (Sept. 22, 2020) - Brian Brown has four big nights of racing on tap this week following a frustrating weekend in Central Pennsylvania.

"I've been frustrated for the last few weeks, but frustration won't help erase some of the bad luck we've had," he said. "We have the car speed. Once our luck turns around we'll be in a good position."

 

Brown will tackle Eldora Speedway's Governors Reign, which pays $52,000 to win the finale, on Tuesday and Wednesday before participating in a World of Outlaws tune-up race at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday and the 38 th annual Jim Nace Memorial National Open at Selinsgrove Speedway on Saturday.

 

Sept. 16 - Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa. - Qualifying: 6; Heat race: 1 (2); Feature: 24 (7).

 

"We were pretty good," Brown said. "We qualified decent and won our heat race. We lined up seventh for the main event, but we had ignition trouble from the get-go."

 

Sept. 18 - Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa. - Qualifying: 5; Heat race: 1 (1); Dash: 1 (1); Feature: 22 (1).

 

"We qualified well and won both our heat race and a dash," Brown said. "We were running third on the last lap and blew a right rear tire. We've had car speed, but just no luck."

 

Sept. 19 - Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa. - Qualifying: 12; Heat race #1: 4 (3); Heat race: #2: 5 (6); Feature: 19 (20).

 

"We ran around where we started all night," Brown said. "I feel like we have the car speed. It's hard not to get down, but to me there's lots of bright points. You can't control your luck. You can make your own luck, but you can't control a lot of things that happen. Stuff that has happened are freak deals that don't happen normally. On the other hand I'm excited as an owner and a driver that we do have speed. If we can just get rid of that bad luck we have a car capable of having good runs."

 

UP NEXT - Tuesday and Wednesday at Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, for the Governors Reign with the Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 and Friday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., and Saturday at Selinsgrove Speedway in Selinsgrove, Pa., for the 38th annual Jim Nace Memorial National Open

 

"First, I'm honored to be asked to show up to this race at Eldora," Brown said. "It's an invitational so it's not like anyone can show up like how it normally is at race tracks. There's a lot of great teams that are invited and a lot of great teams that weren't so we're just happy to be invited. I'm also happy that Eldora and their staff put on such a big event when they didn't have to. Eldora is a place we've had some success at in the past. We've been off a bit in 2020, but the last couple of weeks we've gained on it. We're also looking forward to having two good nights in Pennsylvania this weekend."

Mallett Enjoys Successful Weekend During Hockett/McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway

 

Inside Line Promotions - WHEATLAND, Mo. (Sept. 22, 2020) - Jordon Mallett scored a pair of top-five finishes as well as a seventh-place result during the 10th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial hosted by Lucas Oil Speedway last weekend.

 

"The goal was to not have to run a B Main all weekend and if we did our job we'd get locked into Saturday's show," he said. "With around 80 cars there all week I think our average finish was around four so I'm definitely pleased and it was a great points weekend, too."

Mallett kicked off the three-race Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour weekend at the 'Diamond of Dirt Tracks' on Thursday by advancing four positions in a heat race to finish fifth. He then won a qualifier from third to lock himself into the feature in the eighth starting spot.

 

Hugging the bottom of the track, Mallett advanced to the fifth position on the opening lap of the feature. He then capitalized in traffic to work his way forward to the runner-up position on Lap 16.

 

Over the final nine circuits he erased more than a two-second deficit and pulled under the leader entering turn one on the final lap. The two made slight contact exiting turn two and Mallett had to get out of throttle to avoid a wreck before settling for second. The finish was a career best for Mallett with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour.

 

"Second place is always a good run, but it's about the worst place to finish as you know you just missed a win," he said. "I could've pushed the envelope a bit, but with two more nights of racing I didn't want to junk two good race cars knowing what was at stake all weekend."

 

Mallett duplicated Thursday night's performance on Friday when he advanced four positions to end fifth in a heat race and won a qualifier from the third starting spot. He lined up for the feature on the outside of the second row and he finished fifth on a tricky track that proved tough to pass on.

 

The top-five run was the Greenbrier, Ark., native's 12th of the season. More importantly, after two nights of racing Mallett sat third in points to lock himself straight into the Saturday night finale - worth $10,000 to win.

 

"This weekend we proved that if the race track is good, you can overcome pill draw with determination and hard work," he said. "We pretty much duplicated Thursday night and that's exactly what we were looking for in terms of consistency and success. To know leaving Friday night we were already locked in and didn't have to worry about racing our way in was a big relief and it allowed us to just focus on racing for a win."

 

Mallett, who started the finale third, jumped to second on the initial start, but it got called back. He was not as fortunate on the second attempt and fell to fourth. Mallett stayed in the top five for most of the race before slipping to seventh in traffic. He ended in that position to post his 15th top 10 of the season.

 

"We pretty much ran anywhere from third to eighth all feature long and I wish we had that first start back," he said. "The track was challenging and a lot of guys were not as lucky as us to escape with a top-10 finish so we're leaving with our heads held high and pleased."

 

Mallett will take the week off before returning to action Oct. 2-3 for the 33rd annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark. He enters the weekend sitting fifth in the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour standings and only trails second by 99 points.

 

"I'm trying really hard to put the points deal in the back of my mind and to just focus on running well and contending for wins," he said. "Honestly, I'm more focused on the future than anything and getting my program right to where we can contend every night and feel comfortable each time out. If we run like I feel we're capable of the points deal will take care of itself."

Crockett Earns Two Top 10s During Hockett/McMillin Memorial

 

Inside Line Promotions - WHEATLAND, Mo. (Sept. 22, 2020) - Roger Crockett highlighted the 10th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial with a pair of top-10 runs last weekend at Lucas Oil Speedway.

 

Crockett kicked off the three-race Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour weekend that featured more than 75 drivers on Thursday by charging from eighth to fourth place in a heat race and from fourth to second place in a qualifier. He capped the night with an eighth-place finish in the main event.

"I'm disappointed we didn't have our car better," he said. "The first night we unloaded really good. In the heat race we were really good. In the qualifier we were a tiny bit off, but still got a couple of spots. In the A Main we weren't real good the first few laps until it laid rubber. But then there's nowhere to pass."

 

Crockett drew a high number to line up eighth in a heat race on Friday, but track conditions made passing a premium.

 

"The track was so wet you couldn't pass," he said. "Our car was fine, but you just couldn't pass. We finished seventh. In the qualifier we were able to move forward from eighth to fourth and get ourselves in a decent spot in the B Main. We missed on the car setup, but were able to go fifth to third. Then we missed on the car in the LCQ and were too free. We were good the first few laps and then we were just hanging on. The draw just hurt us so bad that night, as it did many people."

 

A runner-up result in a qualifier on Saturday locked Crockett into the $10,000-to-win main event.

 

"We got in the show, but our car was really bad," he said. "We don't really know what made it so bad. We were way too tight. I couldn't even drive the car the first 25 laps. It got a little better at the end and we were able to move forward some. I think we ran 20th most of the race. It was a struggle until the track dried off."

 

Crockett's late rebound netted a 10th-place finish, which marked his 14th top 10 this season and 11th with the ASCS National Tour - tied for the most.

 

"Ultimately, running 10th was not a horrible outing, especially with 75-plus drivers competing," he said. "We go there to try to win and we weren't a threat to win. That place is really tricky. I think we have something to learn there. There's something I'm missing and we're just not getting the car right."

 

Crockett will be dormant this weekend before resuming ASCS National Tour competition on Oct. 2-3 at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., for the Short Track Nationals.

Carney II Produces First Two Top 10s of Career With World of Outlaws

 

Inside Line Promotions - MESQUITE, Texas (Sept. 22, 2020) - John Carney II earned his first two top-10 finishes during World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series competition last weekend.

 

The SawBlade.com Xiphos saw blade and CSR Garage sponsored driver guided Scott Brown's sprint car to a 10th-place run on Friday at Lawton Speedway in Lawton, Okla. - his first career top 10 with 'The Greatest Show on Dirt' - before posting a career-best eighth-place finish on Saturday during the Texas Outlaw Nationals at Devil's Bowl Speedway.

"It was really a great weekend," Carney II said. "Those guys are the best sprint car drivers in the world. Any time you make a mistake you really expose yourself to losing spots. You have to be perfect with those guys all night to run in the top five or win."

 

Carney II qualified sixth quickest on Friday to open the program at Lawton Speedway.

 

"We timed in great, but we dropped the ball in the heat race a little bit," he said. "We rolled out with a tire on the left rear that wasn't the right deal. That was probably why we lost one spot and the other spot was because of my driving error."

 

Carney II placed fourth to lock into the 12th starting position for the main event.

 

"We raced our way up to seventh," he said. "The car was a little too tight and I was overusing the brakes. With seven or eight laps to go the brakes faded and I lost three spots."

 

The 10th-place result gave the team even more confidence heading into Saturday's event at Devil's Bowl Speedway. Carney II timed in 13 th quickest in qualifying and ended fifth in a heat race to line up 13th in the main event.

 

"We got a little behind in qualifying and that was not ideal," he said. "That started us in the middle of the pack in the feature. That place is so weird about air and your car acting unusual. To be able to pass any cars is a positive. The first half of that race there wasn't much passing. When the track started getting more technical and slicked up I started moving around. I was really able to make up ground on the restarts. The laps I have at Devil's Bowl helped me."

 

Carney II used a late charge to secure the eighth-place finish. He was tied for the most positions gained in the A Main.

 

"The main thing is we ran right outside the top 10 at Dodge City two weekends ago," he said. "Last weekend we ran just inside the top 10. We've learned things each time we hit the track. We put together more consistent laps and the car was drivable. The engine is great. I'm catching up to speed. It's not just one thing that has to go right. There's 50 things that have to go right and they're starting to gel right now."

 

Carney II plans on taking this weekend off before racing with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour on Oct. 2-3 at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., during the Short Track Nationals.

Sides Records Second-Best World of Outlaws Result of Season at Devil's Bowl Speedway

 

Inside Line Promotions - MESQUITE, Texas (Sept. 22, 2020) - Jason Sides posted his second-best result of the season with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series last Saturday at Devil's Bowl Speedway, which hosted the Texas Outlaw Nationals.

 

Sides qualified fourth quickest and placed second in a heat race to lock into the dash. He advanced one position to place fourth in the dash and garner the starting spot on the outside of the second row for the A Main.

"It started out good," he said. "We drew last for qualifying, but it didn't hurt us because the track was really good all night. We qualified fourth and that put us on the front row of a heat race. We finished second to David Gravel and then we gained a spot in the dash. We were pretty good."

 

Sides ran inside the top five for most of the feature before a late restart cost him a handful of positions. He salvaged a ninth-place result, which was his fourth top 10 of the season.

 

"We were optimistic about the feature," he said. "It started out good, but on one of the restarts we were on the outside and running behind everybody in the dirty air the car took off and we lost a couple of spots. I think the only one that passed me when we were racing was (Brad) Sweet. We were running the top in turns three and four and he passed us on the bottom. We got down there and we were pretty good after that."

 

It was a strong result to cap a weekend that began on Friday at Lawton Speedway in Lawton, Okla. Sides timed in eighth quickest in qualifying and he finished fourth in a heat race to start the main event 11th.

 

"We were a little bit tight early and then got good," he said. "I kept using the brakes and they got to where they weren't stopping so I couldn't run as hard as I wanted to. We lost a few spots there at the end."

 

Sides battled for a top 10 throughout the majority of the race before dropping a couple of positions late and ending 13th.

 

Next up for the team will be a trio of World of Outlaws races this Thursday at Plymouth Speedway in Plymouth, Ind.; Friday at Wayne County Speedway in Orrville, Ohio; and Saturday at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa., for the Commonwealth Clash.

It is more than just a race for Joe Graf Jr. at Las Vegas Motor Speedway
LAS VEGAS, Nev.: As NASCAR Xfinity Series rookie Joe Graf Jr. returns to Las Vegas (Nev.) Motor Speedway for Saturday’s Alsco 300, the SS GreenLight Racing driver is racing more than just to chase his first career Xfinity checkered flag. 
During the 200-laps that await him in his second career NASCAR Xfinity Series run at the 1.5-mile track, the 22-year-old will use Las Vegas to partake in the virtual myFace eighth annual Races for Faces.

 
More than half a million people in the United States are living with a craniofacial difference and they all deserve access to personalized care and support.

 
myFace, is a leading nonprofit focused on providing the comprehensive care, education and information to help people with craniofacial differences lead full and productive lives.

 
Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the event that usually attracts thousands of participants will now be done virtually providing a platform that now everyone across the nation can join as myFace creates and celebrate an environment where we can all feel safe, hopeful and empowered – and come together in solidarity to know we collectively have the capacity to make a difference.

 
For every lap that Graf Jr. completes in Saturday’s race, he will donate $10 with a total donation of up to $2,000 as his contribution to participating in Races for Faces.

 
I plan to complete all 200 laps in honor of my incredible sister who has triumphed through her own facial differences,” said the driver of the No. 08 Bucked Up Energy Chevrolet Camaro.

 
“I have pledged $10 per lap completed and I have created a Races for Faces team page where fans, our partners and even others in the industry can show their support with a donation of their choice.

 
“This is a great event and while I’m bummed that I can’t participate in person, this is the next best thing. Looking forward to a great race on Saturday afternoon at Las Vegas.”

 
Those wanting to make a gift to the Graf Jr. team can do so by clicking here.

 
Saturday’s race initiative is Graf Jr.’s latest involvement with myFace.

 
In 2018, he donated a portion of his ARCA Menards Series championship winnings to the organization and last summer, he hosted several children dealing with craniofacial differences for an ARCA Menards Series race at Pocono (Pa.) Raceway.

The 34-car field will take the green flag shortly after 7:30 p.m. on Sat., Sept. 26, 2020, with live coverage on NBCSN, the Performance Racing Network (Radio) and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio (Satellite Radio, Channel 90).
