SEXTON WINS SANTA MARIA CALIFORNIA LIGHTNING SPRINT SERIES RACE

 

(Torrance, CA, August 10, 2022) Two-time California Lightning Sprint Car Series champion Brent Sexton raced to a convincing win when the CLS was part of the reopening of the Santa Maria Raceway last Saturday night.  The win, Sexton’s first ever at the San Luis Obispo County oval, came before an enthusiastic, sellout crowd.

A total of 16 CLS cars showed for the first race at Santa Maria in over a year.  Savage Racing Qualifying saw teenager “Shugah” Shane Sexton record the fastest lap with a time of 14.161.  Defending CLS champion and current point leader David Gasper of Santa Barbara was second best on the clocks with a 14.275. Five-time series champion Bobby Michnowicz of Oak Hills turned in the third fastest time at 14.308.

 

T Shirts By Timeless sponsored the two CLS heat races.  San Diego’s A.J. Bender, who has two CLS winds at the Bakersfield Speedway in 2022, captured the first heat race over “Rockstar” Jon Robertson of Torrance, and Michnowicz. Rookie driver Connor Speir of Fillmore captured the second heat over Sexton, who was the eighth fastest driver in qualifying, and Gasper.

 

A three lap trophy dash, sponsored by R&R Racing, Dick Hindman, Timeless Enterprises, and J.J. Ercse, would determine the starting positions for the first three rows of the main event.  Bender picked up right where he left off in his heat race and won the dash, too.  The victory was worth $230.00.  He would start on the front row of the main with Gasper alongside.  Third place Robertson was on the inside of the second row and was joined by Sexton.  The third row was slated to feature Jeremy Queener of Lake Elsinore and Michnowicz.  However, Michnowicz withdrew for the night after the dash.

 

Bender steered Mike Schweitzer’s #41B into the lead on the start with Gasper, Sexton, Robertson, and Yucca Valley’s Jeff Dyer giving chase.  The boat captain by trade quickly put some distance between himself and Gasper and was a quarter straightaway ahead by lap 5. Likewise, Gasper had pulled away from third place Sexton.

 

Bender caught up to the lapped traffic on lap 9. That was despite broken wing struts on the front wing of his race car. As the lappers momentarily slowed his progress, Gasper, in the “Kittle-Blue #18,” closed in on the leader.  He raced outside of Bender going into turn three and snatched first place as they raced off turn four.

 

Bender closed back in on Gasper on lap 11.  He tried to go by on the inside in turn one.  By that time of the night, turns one and two looked like a lunar landscape and Gasper maintained the top spot.  Conditions continued to deteriorate on the same end of the track and Bender got way sideways in turn two on the 13th circuit.  By the time he recovered, Sexton had raced by for second. 

 

Three laps later, series leading rookie Will Browne spun in the same spot where Bender got sideways.  Gasper who was not far behind, could not avoid the white #8 and plowed into him.  The current point leader broke a shock and bent his front axle and was knocked out of the race.  However, it could have been worse.  As the race was scheduled in June, it was not a traditional points race.  All drivers who showed received the same amount of points.  Thus, Gasper will have the same point lead at the next race. 

When the race resumed, Sexton, who has two wins and is the point leader  in the POWRi Southwest Lightning Sprint Car Series, had Bender on his tail with less than 10 circuits remaining.  That is, he had Bender behind him until lap 22 when the #41B broke a chain tensioner and the chain ripped all the teeth out of the back sprocket.

 

Bender’s exit gave Sexton a commanding lead.  When the checkers ended the race, he was nearly a half track ahead of the competition in his Sexton Fire Protection/BK Wings/ Johnny Motorhead/Troy Dirt/Victory Graphix/Swift Powdercoat/ Maxima Oil/Automated Interior/Scotty and Jimmy Keys #44.  Queener ended up second with Sexton’s nephew, “Shugah” Shane Sexton, third.  Robertson and Bakersfield’s Leland Day were the first two CLS regulars across the line and they finished fourth and fifth respectively.  It was the best 2022 series finish for both. 

 

"Me and my boys are running the Minkota Nationals next week,” Sexton told the massive crowd after the race.  “So, I wanted to come out here and shake the car down. It worked out perfect. Hopefully, it will be a shot in the arm for us back in the Midwest. It is great to see Santamaria back open again. This place is awesome. Hopefully, we can keep doing it.”

 

Sexton pocketed the lion’s share of the lap money when he took home $250.00.   Bender grabbed $200.00 before his exit and Gasper pocketed $175.00 before his early dismissal. 

 

The drivers and staff of the CLS would like to thank the following for making the race possible.  Timeless Enterprises, Savage Racing, Dyer Motorsports, Sexton Fire Protection, Speir Racing, Kittle Motorsports,

Dick Hindman, JJ Ercse, R&R Racing, Schweitzer Motorsports, Gasper Racing, Greco Racing, Chris Dickie, Win Now Racing, and Dave Miller.

 

The CLS is now off until August 26th and 27th when the club journeys north to battle the BCRA on two of its local tracks, the Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, and the Placerville Speedway.  In addition to being the next two-point paying races for the CLS, the events will be rounds two and three of the annual Civil War Series.

CALIFORNIA LIGHTNING SPRINTS AT SATURDAY’S SANTA MARIA REOPENING

(Torrance, CA, August 1, 2022) For years, the Santa Maria Raceway was one of the most popular stops on the annual California Lightning Sprint Car Series schedule.  However, when the 2022 schedule was released, drivers and fans were saddened to see that the Santa Barbara County clay oval was not listed.  That all changes this Saturday night when the CLS is part of the grand reopening of the 58-year-old facility with its “Historical Little 1” main event.   


 


 

 

Last year the CLS had four dates booked at the track.  However, after the second appearance on July 24th, the track was shuttered for something that had nothing to do with racing.  There were questions as to whether the semi-banked 1/3 of a mile would ever see another race.  Fortunately, the word came out in June that the track would reopen and one of the classes invited for opening night was the CLS.

 

More often than not, racetracks shuttering their doors has been the way times have been going,” said longtime racer and first-year CLS President Jon Robertson. “It's extra special to both myself and the entire California Lightning Sprint family to be part of the resurrection of a racetrack, especially one with such a long history as the Santa Maria Raceway. I've personally participated at a lot of races at Santa Maria over many years, it's a unique facility with a great surface and a fantastic fan base. I've always seen great crowds and equally great races there.   It will be something special to once again be able to experience it all at a track that we thought we lost. My hope is that this is just a new beginning to be followed by many more seasons to come.”

 

Rookie driver David Gasper won the first of the two 2021 races at the track on July 3rd.  It was his first ever CLS victory and it went a long way into propelling him into the 2021 championship and the series Rookie of the Year Award.  Going into Saturday’s race, Gasper, who calls Santa Barbara home, has won six of the 11 races on the 2022 CLS schedule including the last four in a row.  He recently moved into the series point lead and brings a 39-point advantage over Yucca Valley’s Jeff Dyer heading into the event.  Palmdale’s Eric Greco is currently third and only trails Dyer by two points.  Camarillo’s Cody Nigh and five-time series champion Bobby Michnowicz of Oak Hills make up the remainder of the top five. 

 

The last CLS race at Santa Maria came three weeks after Gasper’s triumph on July 24, 2021.  On that night, San Diego’s A.J. Bender won the main event in the Mike Schweitzer-owned #41B.  The bad news for the competition is that the Bender/Schweitzer combo will be returning to battle this Saturday.  Due to Bender’s rides in the USAC/CRA Sprint Car and USAC Western Midget Series, he has only made three CLS races in 2022.  In those two races, he has posted two wins and a seventh-place finish.  In addition, he won the Bay Cities Racing Association opener on March 26th at the Placerville Speedway.  Thus, he has three wins in four lightning sprint starts in 2022.

 

In addition to the drivers mentioned above, a full field of CLS regulars is expected to be on hand on Saturday including the complete top nine in points.  Joining them will be the current POWRi Southwest Lightning Sprint Car Series point leader Brent Sexton, and the 2021 SWLS champion, his son Grant.  The Lakeside-based duo has won four of the first eight SWLS races in 2022. 

 

A Sexton relative, “Shugah” Shane Sexton, who a couple of weeks ago won one of the preliminary main events at the prestigious Clay Cup in Washington will head north from his Warner Springs home for Saturday’s race.  He will be driving the same Brian Fonseca-owned Diablo that he drove to victory in the “Show Me State.”  Joining him in another Fonseca car will be Orangevale’s Harlee Aguilera who is currently second in the BCRA championship point standings.

 

Bender, Grant Sexton, and Shane Sexton will all be doing double duty at Santa Maria as they will all compete in the USAC/CRA Series as well as the CLS. 

 

Saturday’s CLS main will pay $100 to take the green flag.  As it was a late addition to the schedule, it will not be a traditional points race as all money is being paid out to the racers. Drivers who show up will receive double sign-in points (40 points).

 

In addition to the CLS and USAC/CRA Sprint Cars, the IMCA Sport Mods and Dwarf Cars will also be in action.  Adult tickets start at $17.00.   For military, seniors (65+), and students with id, tickets start at $15.00.  For kids, 6-12 tickets start at $6.00.  Children 5 and under are free.  Gates will open at 4:00 p.m. with racing at 6:00.  The track is located at 1900 Hutton Road in Nipomo (93444).

 

After Santa Maria, the CLS is off until August 26th and 27th when the club journeys north to battle the BCRA on two of its local tracks, the Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, and the Placerville Speedway.  In addition to being the next two-point paying races for the CLS, the events will be rounds two and three of the annual Civil War Series.

Ruels claims USCS Georgia State Race at Lavonia

 

Lavonia, GA – August 12, 2022 – Jacksonville, Florida’s Mark Ruel, Jr. raced from the K&N Filters Pole Position into the lead in turn one past front row companion Morgan Havener (formerly Turpen) from Goodlettsville, Tennessee to lead every lap of the 30-lap USCS Georgia State Championship Race at Lavonia Speedway on Friday night. It was Ruel’s career sixth USCS trip to victory lane.

Ruel had to fend off Havener for the first half of the contest until her #10m mount coast to a stop exiting turn four at the races mid-point ending her night. After Havener left the track surface, her team-mate, 13-time USCS National Champion and recent National Sprint Car Hall of Fame inductee, Terry Gray from Bartlett, Tennessee took up the chase when the green flag wave.

Eric Riggins, Jr. from Charlotte, North Carolina got past Gray to trail behind Mark Ruel, Jr. while dogging him at every opportunity in lapped traffic, but, could never make a winning pass over the final thirteen laps of the 30-lap contest. Riggins was within a half car length several times before the final caution of three during the contest created a restart with three laps to go.

On the final restart with clear air in front of him, Ruel opened a five-car length lead while Riggins had to hold off Terry Gray for the runner-up spot. Gray garnered the last podium spot in third place as the trio crossed under the checkers. Terry Witherspoon, also from Jacksonville, Florida followed Gray in fourth place and long-distance traveler, Jeffrey Newell from Tulsa, Oklahoma rounded out the top five drivers.

Hayden Martin from Byhalia, Mississippi, who is a senior college student at Ole Miss led the next group in sixth place followed by another young gun, Alex Lyles from Arlington, Tennessee in seventh place. Braselton, Georgia’s second-generation sprint car driver and former USCS winner at the speedway, Matt Linder finished in eighth place. Former USCS Rookie of the Year and current runner-up position racer, Jeff Willingham from Ripley, Mississippi followed Linder in ninth place. Another Georgia driver, Brian Thomas from Pendergrass rounded out the top ten.

The evening’s heat race winners were Terry Gray in the Engler Machine and Tool First Heat. Then, Hayden Campbell from Montverde, Florida collected the win in the JJ Supply Second Heat Race, and Morgan Havener (Turpen) won the Hero Graphics Third and final Heat Race. Mark Ruel, Jr. won the USCS Hoosier Speed Dash for the top six cars in passing points after the heat races. This awarded Ruel the K&N Filters Pole Position for the main event. Jeffrey Newell garnered the Wildwood Disc Brakes Hard Charger Award after starting thirteenth and finishing fifth in the A-Main.

The next USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour presented by K&N Filters is Saturday, August 13th at Senoia Raceway in Senoia, Georgia. The USCS Sprint Cars will be joined on Saturday night by an action-packed program of Late Model and Stock Car Racing.

Rossmann Tallies Another Win!!

Second Generation driver Clayton Rossmann of Wadsworth, IL captured his second consecutive 20-lap AutoMeter/Brewington Electric Wisconsin WingLESS Sprint feature at Wilmot Raceway on Saturday, August 6.

The 16-year-old Rossmann shot into the lead three laps from the finish as early leader Tim Cox of Park City, IL and Rusty Egan of Round Lake Beach, IL came together in turn four battling for the top spot. Cox took the initial lead and maintained it through a red flag for a flip by Ralph Johnson of Silver Lake in turn three two laps into the main. R. Johnson was not injured. Cox and Rossmann went wheel to wheel for several circuits as the laps wound down, including a pair of cautions with 16 and 8 laps left. On the final restart, it became a trio battling for the top spot until the Cox and Egan incident with Rossmann finding the open spot down low. The race stayed green with Rossmann taking the checkered flag followed by Johnny Fahl of Brown Deer coming on for second. Kansasville's Ryan Marshall, who started 17th in the 24-car field after winning one of the twin-B Mains, was third. Cox recovered for fourth with Egan fifth.

"This was great running with my hero as I was growing up," said Rossmann, after being greeted in victory lane with a big hug by the veteran Cox. "My family was here from out of town for the second time in a row, and they must think all I do is win. I don't know if I can get them to come back in two weeks(August 20) when we race here again. I have to thank everyone who has been helping out, my family, and Colin Sivia who has become my crew chief."

Rob Maule of Hebron, IL led wire to wire to become the fourth different winner of the season in the Wilmot Mountain Street Stock 20-lap feature. Maule was up to the late race challenges by a pair of cautions, one with six laps left and one which created a green/white dual flag restart to finish the event. A revised finish following a pair of post-race disqualifications for illegal cars had Maule in first, Cody Erickson of Algonquin, IL second, Robby Olson of Lindenhurst, IL third, Kenosha's Blake Kreuser fourth and Salem's James Jaime fifth.

"The car ran super and it's great to finally get a win this year," said Maule, joined by his adopted crew chief Colin Sivia, in victory lane. "I have to thank all of our sponsors and we're looking forward to one of them, Burlington Hobbies & RC Track which is giving away a RC Car valued at over $300 to a luckey fan who comes out to the opening fair night for the races on Wednesday, August 17. They will get a free ticket for a chance to win it that night just by coming to watch the races."

Genoa City's Mike Simons continued on his hot streak by winning his fourth Gerber Collision & Glass Modified 20-lap feature in a row and fifth of the season. The 3-time Wilmot champion continues to lead the point standings as the season winds down, as he led flag to flag. Cautions four laps into the main and with 11 laps to go kept erasing M. Simons larger advantage, but each time he was up to the challenge going on to the win. Milwaukee's Dave Wirth took second. Bristol's John Dost third. New Berlin's Brad McGuire fourth. Kenosha's Cory Lightfield a career best fifth.

"I hope this was a little more entertaining then last week when we had to call it short due to the curfew," said M. Simons, joined by his family in victory lane. "I wish I could have battled by brother longer(Nick Simons retired to the infield with mechanical problems while running second). We'll look forward to fair night now."

Pleasant Prairie's Mike Neau captured his second Pfeiffer Trailer Sales IRA Lightning Sprints 20-lap feature at Wilmot this season. Oak Creek's Mark Heinert took the early race lead maintaining it through a caution and a couple of red flags which ended up with a lot of torn up race cars but no injured drivers. Neau shot to the inside coming out of turn four powering into the lead with 11 laps remaining. A final caution at the midway point closed the field, but Neau was up to scoring the win. Heinert, a team car for Dream Chaser Racing which Neau drives for as well for his father, Larry Neau, took second. Franksville's Derek Fortier took third in a hotly contested battle. Max Brannam of Holiday Hills, IL finished a close fourth which was a career best finish for him. John Kirk of Johnsburg, IL was fifth.

"I saw the spot as Mark drifted high in the corner and went for it," said Neau. "I had been trying to run up there earlier and it didn't work for me, and it didn't work for Mark either so I kept to the low side. It's great to get a second win and we're looking forward to the fair night for us in two weeks(Saturday, August 20). We've only got a couple of points nights left(at Wilmot), so we'll see what happens."

Wilmot Raceway takes next weekend (Saturday, August 13) off as the facility is prepared for the upcoming Kenosha County Fair.

Marshall Conquers Angell Park Again

At Angell Park Speedway thirty of the Wisconsin Wingless Sprints checked into the speedway to take the green flag. Davey Ray out of Davenport, Iowa would be on top of the speed charts for qualifying, laying down a lap of 14.702. Ryan Zielski, Jimmy Sivia, Zach Raidart, and Ryan Marshall would round out the top 5 qualifiers of the night.

Heat races were underway and the "Shirtless Wonder" Nathan Crane, Clayton Rossmann, and Rusty Egan were victorious in their heat races. Top six punched their ticket into the show later that evening, but the rest had to fight for a spot through the B Main. Taking it from the first row, Travis Mahoney would win the B main. Mike Sullivan, Ralph Johnson, Natalie Klemko, Bryce Andrews, and Tom Eller would round out the transfers.

Clayton Rossman and Johnny Fahl would lead the field of 24 to the green. Johnny Fahl would lead the field for the majority of the race trying to hold off the heavy competition of Marshall, Raidart, and Sivia. With a few laps remaining, the defending 2021 Wisconsin Wingless Champion would steal the lead and take the checkers. Fahl would come home second, and Raidart would round out the podium.

The Wisconsin Wingless Sprints will be in action on August 6th at Wilmot Raceway. Pits open at 3:00, Gates open at 5:00pm, Hot Laps at 6:00, and Racing starts at 6:30. They will be joined by the IRA Lightning Sprints, A Modifieds, and Street Stocks.


Simon's and Rossmann Continue Rolling

Clayton Rossmann of Wadsworth, IL added to his Wilmot Raceway early racing legacy by capturing his second 20-lap AutoMeter/Brewington Electric Wisconsin WingLESS Sprints feature of his career on Wm. J. Meyer & Son of Libertyville, IL Night Saturday, July 30.

Rossmann, who won his first ever feature at age 15 last summer, took the lead following a caution on a restart with 11 laps remaining. Ryan Marshall of Kansasville, who held top spot through three early cautions, suddenly lost power with 12 laps remaining while leading bringing out a yellow and retiring to the pits. On the restart, Ryan Zielski of Oconomowoc, who inherited the lead, also lost power retiring to the pits and bringing out another yellow.

Rossmann took over the point on the restart with one final yellow coming with four laps remaining. The now 16-year-old second generation driver became the second youngest sprint car feature winner in Wilmot's history. Nathan Crane of Waukegan, IL was second. Bristol's Chris Klemko came from 10th starting spot to finish third. Greg Olsen of Round Lake Heights, IL was fourth. Tim Cox of Park City, IL came from 11th to finish fifth.

"I really wish that I could have battled Ryan (Marshall) and Ryan (Zielski), who both had mechanical woes," said Rossmann, joined by his family in victory lane. Rossmann's win in 2021 made him the youngest ever sprint car feature winner ever. "The first one was when I was 15 and now I'm only 16 and have a second one. It feels great."

The Pfeiffier Trailer Sales IRA Lightning Sprints seemed to be another feature where it was not good to be in the lead. C.J. Malueg of Johnsburg, IL, who was in a tight three and even four-way battle for the top spot in the race's early going, inherited the lead with two laps left following a red flag. The stoppage came when John Kirk of Johnsburg, IL had his car roll onto its side going into turn one after losing a left-rear wheel on a restart after a caution.
Franksville's Derek Fortier, had the early lead, losing it to Pleasant Prairie's Mike Neau with 15 laps remaining after a red flag restart when Union Grove's Andrew Kiedrowski flipped in turn one. Kiedrowski was not injured. Fortier retook the front when Neau brought out a caution as he lost power while leading and retired to the pits.

The mechanical gremlins continued for the front runners when Fortier was not able to refire after the red flag for Kirk's incident. That put Malueg in front on the restart and he was able to maintain the lead to the checkered although he had engine problems in the closing laps he revealed in victory lane. Bristol's Adam Schroeder was second. Tim Brannam of Holiday Hills, IL third. Slinger's Jeff Schmidt fourth. Max Brannam of Holiday Hills, IL fifth.

"I didn't know if we'd make it to the finish when I got the lead because the motor was running hot and we were almost out of water, so I was afraid the engine might blow," admitted Malueg. "I'm glad it stayed together, but I felt bad for the guys in front of me who kept having problems. I'd much rather have raced them for it."

Genoa City's Mike Simons won his fourth Modified Feature of the season in a curfew shortened 11-lap main event. Simons took the lead from early pacesetter Jason Wirth of Elkhorn three laps into the feature after three cautions slowed the early pace. A red flag came out with 11 laps to go when David Powers of Woodlawn, TN, substitute driving for Lee Tibbitts, flipped in turn three with the mangled car landing upside down. Following an extensive clean up and having to carefully get Powers out, who walked to the ambulance for a checkup, set up a final restart attempt. Unfortunately, five cars tangled behind Simons bringing out a final caution.

With the curfew reached, the cars were lined up in their restart order with M. Simons taking the yellow/checkered first for the win. His younger bother Nick Simons of Genoa City started 9th and finished second. Waterford's Mike Wittenburg started tenth finishing third. Bristol's John Dost fourth. Tom Neubauer of Round Lake, IL started 11th finishing fifth.

"This isn't the way I'd like to get the win," said M. Simons, three-time Wilmot champion and current point leader . "I have to thank my sponsors and everybody who helps out. We'll be back next week."

The Bandit 4-Cylinder Stock Car feature, which was including some bonus money, is tentatively planned to be added to the Kenosha County Fair Opening Night on Wednesday, August 17. The Bandits would run twin-features that night, with the main event from July 30 being the first race of the evening after the National Anthem. Added purse money thanks to sponsors C.K. Contractors, Johnny Z's Pour House, MLS Auto Clinic, Jordan Paulsen Racing and JLL Trucking, which has 1st place paying $500.00, 2nd $200 and 3rd $175, along with a $75 Hard Charger award, would be included for the July 30 feature and that line up would be already set based on the July 30 lineup for the feature which was not able to be run due to the curfew.

Family Night is next up for Wilmot Raceway on Saturday, August 6 featuring the Brewington Electric/AutoMeter Wisconsin WingLESS Sprints, Gerber Collision & Glass Modifieds, Pfeiffer Trailer Sales IRA Lightning Sprints and Wilmot Mountain Street Stocks. Grandstands open at 5 p.m. with on track activity at about 5:30 p.m. and racing to follow.

Schuett Breaks Inside the Winners Club

22 cars checked into night number three of the Hopf Farms Bullring Showdown at the Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, WI. Jordan Goldesberry would pick up the Osborn and Son Trucking Fast Time Award with a lap of 11.750. We were also joined by the Badger Midgets and the Plymouth 360 MSA Sprint Car Series.

Heat races were won by Jeremy Schultz, Jake Blackhurst, and Tyler Tischendorf. Tischendorf is running for Rookie of the Year and won his first career heat race with the IRA Sprints. 

Kyle Schuett and Scotty Neitzel were on top of the charts for each of the dashes.

When we dropped the green, it was Schuett taking lap one with 2w and 26 battling behind him. For the first couple of laps, Neitzel and Tischendorf had striking distance on Schuett. The more laps Schuett raced, the larger the lead on the rest of the field he had. Neitzel, running third, got loose in corner allowing Goldesberry in competition for a podium spot. It was Goldesberry and Tischendorf battling it out when Schlafer and Schultz came to play. Schlafer was in pursuit of another top spot this weekend as he passed Schultz to take 5th. All this before lap five, when Schuett would reach lap traffic. With six in the books, we would draw the red flag for the Rhine Auto 39 of Jake Blackhurst in turn two. When we brought the field back to green, it was Schuett, Tischendorf, Neitzel, Goldesberry, and Schlafer. Back to green where Neitzel and Schlafer would go low, and Tischendorf and Goldesberry went to the cushion. Goldesberry would make the move on Neitzel to momentarily take third away. Following close behind Goldesberry, Schlafer would pass as well to take 4th. Eighteen laps to go, and it was still Schuett on top, followed by Neitzel and Goldesberry. Nimee would also try to break into the top five starting from the 6th row. Ten circuits remained for Schuett as he continued to maneuver past competition and with car lengths on second and third. Behind Schuett, the 2w and the 25 were making up ground trying to catch up to the race-long leader. Six remained as Neitzel and Schlafer found themselves up to Schuett’s tail tank when the 5-lap countdown began. Neitzel would be the first to try to show a nose wing with 3 laps remaining. Two left as Schlafer would make the pass on Neitzel for second with momentum to close the gap on Schuett as the white dropped. Schuett would take one more lap around Plymouth Dirt Track where he would take the checkered on his first career IRA Sprint Feature event win. Schlafer came home second, and Neitzel third. 

Congratulations to Schuett Racing Inc!

The IRA schedule now sits quiet for two weeks during Nationals while most of our teams will not compete, they will have a chance to regroup prior to finishing off our fair season races. Good luck to all of the teams competing during the Nationals.


Schlafer Doubles down at the Half-Mile

Night number two of fair season took place in Antigo, WI at the Langlade County Fairground red clay half mile. 21 of the best of the upper midwest checked into the fairgrounds to battle.

Osborn and Son Trucking Qualifying had “The Big Wheel” Scotty Thiel on top of the speed charts laying down a 18.296. Following him was Scotty Neitzel, Danny Schlafer, Jordan Goldesberry, and Jake Neuman rounding out the top 5 fastest of the night.

Heat races were next in the program; Jake Blackhurst, Dave Uttech, and Kyle Schuett winning heat races.

The three heat race winners and the next seven fastest went to the draw for the dash. Dash number one was won by the Sussex, WI native, Danny Schlafer. Dash number two was won by the “King of the Sherm Nation” Jeremy Schultz.

Leading the field to the green, Danny Schlafer picked up where he had left off at Outagamie Speedway one week ago. With few laps in, Schlafer had 5 car lengths between himself and Schultz as they flew around the speedway. The battle to watch was between the 73 of Thiel, Blackhurst and Neitzel. Neuman would be in the mix as well. They would throw sliders back and forth, along with slamming doors on each other as well. Thiel and Blackhurst would first go door to door down the backstretch while Neitzel would hang on to third at that point in the race. Positions would be changed between third and sixth as race-long leader Schlafer and Schultz would catch the tail of the field. During this time, Schultz would gain some ground on Schlafer, but they both would stay in their positions. Neitzel, Thiel, and Blackhurst would continue to throw sliders at each other fighting for a top spot while trying to catch up to Schlafer and Schultz. Laps counted down, and Schlafer would see the white flag drop at the Langlade County Fairgrounds. Schlafer would take home his second IRA Sprints Victory in his racing career, Schultz second, and Blackhurst would claim the final spot on the podium.

This was an emotional win for the Schlafer family, as they recently lost a crew member earlier this week. The IRA Sprint family sends wishes to the Schlafer Racing team and the family of David Struve Sr.

With Danny’s win tonight, that also makes him and his father Al on the charts for the Father-Son Duo to both win at Langlade County Speedway.

We will be back in action for night number three of our “Series within a Series” Hopf Farms Bullring Showdown tomorrow night at the Plymouth Dirt Track. If you can’t make it, watch all the action live on FloRacing.

 

Austin Hartmann earns hard charger honors, two top-15 showings in IRA Antigo-Plymouth doubleheader

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) August 3, 2022 – The gradual building process continued to take shape for 410 Winged Sprint Car rookie Austin Hartmann and the 87A Hartmann Racing team with a pair of steady performances in Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series competition at Langlade County Speedway in Antigo, Wis. on Friday, July 29 and at the Plymouth, Wis.-based team's home track at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, July 30.

The IRA doubleheader weekend opened with the team's first trip north to the big, wide, half-mile Langlade County Speedway facility in Antigo, Wis., during the Langlade County Fair on Friday, July 29. Hartmann opened the night by timing in 15th in the 21-car field with a lap of 19.571 seconds.

After lining up fifth in the third eight-lap IRA heat race, Hartmann held down the fifth position in the running order until the final lap when he suffered a rear-end failure heading down the backstretch, which relegated him to a seventh-place finish and sent the 87A Hartmann Racing team into scramble mode to put the car back together for the A-main.

Some quick and efficient crew work got Hartmann back on the track for the 25-lap A main, where he officially started 19th. A strong start vaulted Hartmann past several cars in the opening laps, as he worked his way around Al Schlafer, Hunter Custer, Tyler Tischendorf, Kris Spitz and Jack Vanderboom, during the course of the race on the way to a 14th-place finish in the non-stop event, which was won by Danny Schlafer.

Hartmann's third top-15 A-main finish of the IRA season also netted him hard charger honors, after moving up five spots in the main event.

“It was our first time racing at Antigo and qualifying went the best it could really, as the track faded quickly,” Hartmann said. “In the heat race, we were running fifth until the rear axle snapped. Luckily, it happened going down the backstretch and not in the corner.

“The crew, along with Ozzie and Mikey from Team 73, got the car back together for the A main,” he said. “The car felt great in the feature and we were able to run up to 14th to turn a night that didn't start out very well into a good night for us.”

The following night saw the team travel back home for its third appearance of the season at The Plymouth Dirt Track. With 22 IRA 410 Sprint Cars on hand, Hartmann turned in his best qualifying effort of the 2022 season, as he timed in third with a lap of 11.769 seconds around the third-mile clay oval.

After lining up fourth in the third eight-lap heat race, Hartmann finished fourth to advance to his second IRA dash of the 2022 campaign. The third-year Sprint Car racer started and finished fifth in the second four-lap IRA dash to secure the 10th starting spot in the 30-lap main event.

Hartmann worked primarily the low groove during the majority of the A-main en route to a strong 12th-place main event showing in a race won by Kyle Schuett.

The finish marked Hartmann's fourth top-15 and ninth top-20 A-main showing in the first 14 IRA events of the 2022 season.

“Saturday started great with a good run in qualifying,” Hartmann said. “I honestly didn't feel the greatest with my laps, but I guess that's sometimes when you end up being faster. In the heat race, the plan was to make it into the dash, which we did before I pulled a terrible pill.

“Going into the feature was a little tricky for me, as we were battling small issues with the car's handling all night, so we put something new into the car and it was okay, but just not enough to go forward,” he said.

After the event at The Plymouth Dirt Track on July 30, Hartmann moved up to ninth place in the Bumper to Bumper IRA Sprint Car Series point standings with 10 races remaining in the 2022 IRA season.

With no IRA races scheduled during the next two weekends, the 87A Hartmann Racing team will return to action with an IRA doubleheader weekend starting Saturday, Aug. 20 at Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wis. and concluding Sunday, Aug. 21 at Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wis. during the annual Corn Fest celebration.

Tyler Tischendorf Logs First Heat Win, Top 10 with IRA at Plymouth

When the Tischendorf family moved to 410 Sprint Car racing in 2022, they were expecting this season to be simply a learning year to prepare and gain knowledge for 2023. While that has been and still is the case, they have found consistent speed with rookie driver Tyler Tischendorf and their Green Bay Blizzard #26 Triple X Chassis that they weren’t expecting to gain this early in their IRA Sprints career.

“This night came a lot sooner than I pictured it.” Tyler Tischendorf said after his best ever performance behind the wheel of a 410 sprint car. “My whole crew has more confidence in me than I do, and I guess I proved them right on Saturday.”

The night began with Tischendorf putting down a lap good enough for 8th quick in IRA Qualifying. Time trials are immensely important in IRA competition, as they set up drivers for a chance at one of two dashes that set the Top 10 starting spots in the night’s features as long as you transfer out of your heat race.

However, “TNT” decided to do more than just simply transfer.

Starting 2nd behind series veteran Russell Borland, the Waupaca, WI native nailed the start and ripped around the outside of Borland to take the lead down the backstretch on lap one, then once again nailing the cushion in turns 3 and 4 to solidify himself in the top spot ahead of Borland, 2x series Champion Scotty Neitzel, eventual feature winner Kyle Schuett, and National Midget Champion Jake Neuman. For the remaining 7 laps, Tischendorf was never challenged from behind, and won his first career IRA Heat race and took his race win of any kind in 410 competition in commanding fashion. The win also locked the rookie driver into his first career Dash Redraw, done on the front stretch in front of a capacity crowd at the Sheboygan County Fairground and live on FloRacing. Tischendorf was joined in the redraw by 2021 IRA Rookie of the Year and close friend Kyle Schuett, and the two drivers were both set to have career best outings in IRA action.

“Being able to pick up my first Heat win in a 410 and go up to the dash draw with one of my best friends is something I’ll never forget.” Tischendorf said about the night’s events. “To be in front of a huge crowd like that at a track I’ve spent so much time at in a 360 was just amazing.”

The young star drew the 2nd starting spot in Dash #1, right alongside Schuett. In the 4 lap sprint, Schuett jumped out to the lead but Tischendorf ran a strong second, with a sizeable gap back to former Wilmot 410 Sprint Car Track Champion Todd Daun, former IRA Champion Jeremy Schultz and series veteran Jereme Schroeder.

The A Feature got off to a nearly unbelievable start for the Professional Plating #26. Starting 3rd, Tischendorf rolled the bottom to perfection on the opening lap, pulling even with and eventually overtaking Neitzel for 2nd on the opening circuit. On lap 2, the rookie took a shot at Schuett for the lead into turn 1, but the Philo, IL native pulled ahead on the cushion. Now being hounded for 2nd by Neitzel, Tischendorf made a decisive move to the top side of the raceway, solidifying himself in the runner-up spot on lap 3.

As Schuett began to encounter traffic on lap 4, Tischendorf began to close the gap to the leader, pulling Neitzel and 4th place Jordan Goldesberry with him. However, his hunt for the lead would be brought to a halt by a red flag on lap 6 for Jake Blackhurst’s #39 machine going over in turn 2.

“I kept expecting to see someone blow by me in those first few laps.” Tischendorf admitted after the race. “I had no idea that I had probably a 5-7 car length gap back to Scotty [Neitzel]. I was just trying to be smooth and patient in order to catch Kyle if I could. Under yellow, my tires sealed over a bit and I couldn’t get going like I wanted to on the restart.”

As the green flag came back out, Tischendorf moved straight to the top side, opening the bottom up for Neitzel and the veteran took full advantage, ripping by the #26 in turn 4. Neitzel then came back to the top side as Tischendorf now had to deal with Goldesberry and a hard charging Danny Schlafer. Over the final 20 laps, the rookie contested fierce battles with the likes of Goldesberry, Blake Nimee, Jeremy Schultz and Jake Neuman to eventually come home in 9th place. Not the initial result the young driver was hoping for, but a career best IRA finish nonetheless.

“I think we had a really good shot at at least a Top 5 if the feature had gone green to checkered.” Tischendorf said about the A Feature. “It was disappointing a little to fall back like I did, but I learned so much racing with those top guys like Blake [Nimee] and Jake [Neuman]. To actually be able to come back at them a bit was really fun and shows how good this car is right now. I can’t thank everyone who helps out on this deal enough, and we’re hoping to carry this momentum to Wilmot in a couple weeks!”

The IRA will enter their annual summer break for the Knoxville Nationals, and returns on August 20th and 21st at Wilmot for the Roger Iles Tribute at the Kenosha County Fair, and Sunday for Corn Fest at Angell Park Speedway. Tischendorf had one of his three career best runs [12th] earlier this season at Angell Park at the Norm Nelson Classic. Tickets for Wilmot are available online through My Race Pass as well as at the track on Raceday, and Angell Park tickets are available in advance through the Ticket Hoss app. Both events will be broadcast live on the FloRacing streaming service.
