Non-Wing Sprints To Join ARCA At Lucas Oil Raceway in July

 

(Brownsburg, IN) When the ARCA Menards Series makes its 2020 return to Lucas Oil Raceway Indianapolis, fans will be treated to some open wheel racing in addition to the stock cars, making for a great doubleheader.

 

The Friday, July 3 event will see a return of Sprint Cars, of the non-wing variety, running rules similar to those that are run at the nearby Anderson Speedway, in Anderson, IN.  The non-wing sprints were popular for years at the track, before USAC became dirt only with their Sprints and Midgets.

 

Pit gates are scheduled to open at 9:00 AM, with grandstands at 1:30 PM, practice at 2:00, ARCA General Tire Pole Qualifying at 5:00, the Sprint car feature at 6:00 and the ARCA race at 8:00. 

 

The event will be promoted by Track Enterprises, which has a total of eight ARCA events on its schedule this year.  For more information, feel free to contact them at 217-764-3200 or visit the website at www.trackenterprises.com.

Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway Driver Meeting a Huge Success

NFS to Open 63rd Season of Racing on Saturday, April 18, 2020

 

Nashville, TN (Tuesday, January 7, 2020) – The 2020 racing season at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway (NFS) is arguably the most anticipated season of racing in Nashville, Tennessee in recent years. On Sunday, January 5th, new Speedway Management held a driver information meeting in The Fairgrounds Nashville’s newly constructed Expo Building, that drew upwards of 300 guests.

 

Four organizers addressed the room, Bob Sargent, President of Track Enterprises, Randy Dyce of D&D Events, Scott Menlen, General Manager of NFS, and Laura Womack, Executive Director of The Fairgrounds Nashville. Among the topics discussed included, the bright future for the Speedway, scheduling, technical rules, points, registration and much more.

 

It was formally announced that the 63rd Season Opener for asphalt racing at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway will be Saturday, April 18, 2020. Special events include the ARCA Menards Series, USAC Silver Crown Series and Late Model Special on May 2nd and 3rd. On Saturday, July 18th NFS is proud to host the eighth running of the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Masters of the Pros. The famed All-American weekend is scheduled for Friday through Sunday, October 30th through November 1st. Local classes will be part of the Masters of the Pros event, the All-American weekend, as well as standalone local events to be announced soon.

 

As expected for any driver meeting, rules were a main topic of conversation. The Pro Late Model division will adopt the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour rules package for the 2020 race season. On the quarter mile, Speedway Officials informed race teams of their intent to align the Pure Stock and Front Runner rules as commonly as possible with neighboring speedways.

 

Driver registration, pit stall reservations and more important documents are slated to be released by February, as the speedway management team works diligently this month.

 

A new website for NFS is in the final stages of construction and has limited information available now at www.nashvillefairgroundsspeedway.racing. News, information, questions and suggestions can be directed to the NFS official Facebook page, ‘Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway’.

Since we do not include your SS # on the membership forms, we need this filled out for the tax man when sending your 1099's. So...if you don't have it on file, you won't get a 1099, which means you will be late with your information for your tax man. You can download the form, under forms on both track home pages.

OFF-SEASON WORK AT THE TRACKS! The concrete wall replacement of turns 1 and 2 at Flat Rock has been completed. A new catch fence will be installed as the weather changes. *With this project, our plan is to keep folks back away from the wall when cars are on the track. We are looking at several options, including additional seating in another location for the pits. This is for your safety. We will not install a mesh screen above the wall as an option. We will need your cooperation in this matter as we get ready for the new season. We will keep you up to date as we work on this issue.


 

 

We have also done some replacement/repair work on several concrete pads, and the TKC Karts are moving their storage area up by the pit sign-in. Dirt has been added to the infield and has also been re-seeded in several areas. At Toledo, we have put a new roof on the tech barn, had a sewer line repaired and sealed the cracks in the ½ mile.

2020 RACE DATES SET FOR 31ST SEASON OF THE NAPA AUTO PARTS THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY

 

BECHTELSVILLE, PA . . . . . . . The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series will return to the Grandview Speedway in 2020 for its thirty-first season. Another year of premier events will make-up the 2020 Thunder Series to include all the fan-favorite shows, plus the first-ever Trick or Treat Triple 20's for Modifieds joined by the Sportsman to highlight the October MODS at the MADHOUSE season finale.

 

The Thunder on the Hill Racing Series has presented 137 events since its inception in August 1990 and is known for bringing the top racing divisions and top touring series to Grandview Speedway. In 2020, that tradition continues with the USAC Non-Wing Sprints and Midgets, the Pennsylvania 410 Sprint Speed Week Series, Tony Stewart's All Star Circuit of Champions, and the Grandview NASCAR 358 Modifieds all scheduled for events.  

 

In the past, the Thunder Series also presented the WoO Sprints and Late Models, SCRA, CRA, DirtCar, ROC Modifieds, ARDC Midgets, URC Sprints, and MASS Sprint cars. In most cases, these events have two top divisions sharing the main event, making it a must-see show.

 

The 2020 NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series will open on Sunday, May 24, with the 23rd Annual Modified Traffic Jam joined by the Sportsman. The series continues on Tuesday, June 9, when the USAC AMSOIL National Non-Wing Sprint Car Series invades Grandview for the annual Jesse Hockett Classic, co-headlined by the NASCAR 358 Modifieds. A fan-favorite event, the USAC non-wing stars put on a race like no other at the Grandview Speedway.

 

Always one of the most anticipated events at Grandview is the Pennsylvania 410 Sprint Car Speedweek alongside the NASCAR 358 Modifieds on Tuesday, June 30. The Speedweek 35 lap feature, known as the Hodnett Cup, is dedicated to the memory of sprint car great Greg Hodnett. Fabricated from one of Greg's many trophies, the Hodnett Cup includes a base where names of future Hodnett Cup winners will be engraved.

13TH ANNUAL DIRT TRACK HEROES CAR SHOW TO MOVE TO PALMER PARK MALL IN EASTON, PA, MARCH 6 TO MARCH 8

 

It is with great disappointment that after twelve successful years, The Dirt Track Heroes Car Show will not be returning to the Phillipsburg Mall in Phillipsburg, NJ. 

 

Two days before Christmas, the Phillipsburg Mall merchants were notified that they need to vacate the property, and the Mall will be closing.  

 

"It is a disappointment, but not a surprise as the activity at the Mall has seen a decline over the past two years," commented event organizer Bob Miller. "I learned of the closing at the same time the merchants were notified."  

 

 "We had dates and an unsigned contract for the 2020 show since May 2019 and intentionally did not announce the 2020 show dates in anticipation of the disappointing decision."  

 

The show organizers contacted the Palmer Park Mall in October as a contingency plan, and they are welcoming this event with open arms.

 

The Palmer Park Mall is located in Easton, PA, at the intersection of Route 248 and Park Avenue, just off route 22/78. It is a single-story mall, with 457,743 square feet of shopping. The Palmer Park Mall is somewhat smaller than the Phillipsburg Mall, so those wishing to be part of the show should enter early. The Dirt Track Heroes Show will be utilizing the former BON TON Store as well as much of the Mall walk area.

 

Race cars, tracks, and organizations are all welcome to be part of the show, and vendors are welcome as well. Please contact  Event Organizer Justin Beltrame at 484 772 7184 for entry details.

 

Move-In will take place on Thursday night, March 5, at 9 PM. The show will run all day Friday, Saturday, and Sunday with cars and displays moving out at 6 PM on March 8.

 

We do wish to thank the staff and ownership of the Phillipsburg Mall. They were great friends to the show, and we enjoyed a great working relationship, especially with the security team who went out of their way every year to make us feel welcome and accommodate all our needs.

 

More details will be provided shortly.

2020 FLAT ROCK, TOLEDO SCHEDULES POSTED!


 
The 2020 Flat Rock and Toledo Speedway schedules are now posted under the Racer Info. tab of both home pages at www.flatrockspeedway.com or www.toledospeedway.com
 

 

Southeastern Promoters Workshop Scheduled for January 24, 2020
Inaugural Gathering Focused on Promoting Tracks, Series & Businesses
 
Gatlinburg, Tennessee (12/27/19) – A brand-new, race promoter’s workshop will launch on January 24, 2020. Known as the Southeastern Promoters Workshop (SPW), the gathering will be held at the Gatlinburg Convention Center in Gatlinburg, Tennessee.
 
The primary focus of the one-day seminar is to bring promoters from tracks, series, and businesses together in one place in an effort to seek new avenues to promote future growth in racing.
 
“When Adam Stewart called me with the idea, I was immediately on board,” co-organizer, Ben Shelton notes. “I’ve been saying for a long time that our region of the country needs a promoter’s workshop, where folks can get together and actually put a face with a name. Not only will it give us all a chance to network, but also gives us all a platform to learn new ideas and approaches, so that we can do our part to help racing continue to grow and thrive.”
 
The opening breakfast will be held from 8:00 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. on Friday, January 24. The workshop kicks off at 9:00 a.m. before seeing a break for lunch from 11:45 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. Resuming at 1:30 p.m. the presentations and discussions continue until 5:00 p.m., at which time a one-hour reception/ cocktail hour with hors d’oeuvres  is set to begin.
 
“I’m encouraging promoters from all tracks, series, and racing business to attend. One thing I want to make clear, is that while I’m the series director for Crate Racin’ USA, this is not a sales pitch session for our brand. Rather this is a chance for all series and tracks to come together to learn, talk, and engage with one another,” event co-organizer,” Adam Stewart shared. “For this reason, I’ve brought Ben Shelton in to mediate and help organize the workshop. He works with multiple divisions, events and sanctions in dirt track racing across North America and brings an impartiality to this workshop.
 
“The bottom line is that all of the key players in our sport have got to do a better job of working together and being forward-thinking with our promotions, if we hope to be around for many years to come. That’s the ultimate goal of this workshop.”
 
While presenters and topics are still being finalized, the workshop will include presentations on track prep, social media strategies, community involvement, technical inspection, race promotions, new technology, sponsorship strategies, and more.
 
Attendees are encouraged to come prepared to ask any-and-all questions to both presenters as well as fellow seminar attendees.
 
Attendance is free. However, if you’d like to attend, RSVP is requested to Adam Stewart at 256-499-7536 or crateracinusa@gmail.com so that he can plan accordingly.

The Figure 8 division is "pure entertainment", noted Ron Drager, Owner and Promoter of both tracks. "While these drivers and teams are very serious about their racing and their machines, the entertainment the Victory Lane Quick Oil Change Figure 8's provide is second to none."

WoO, MTT, DIRT, STSS, USAC, & URC HIGHLIGHT 2020 BRIDGEPORT SEASON

 

ridgeport Speedway is proud to announce that they have put together an exciting schedule of events for the 2020 season!  “Excited is an understatement,” new track owner Doug Rose exclaimed.  “We’ve come up with such a diverse and attractive schedule for the fans and race teams, I truly can’t wait.  We’ve got the best touring series in the country coming to Bridgeport in 2020 along with the best weekly competition on Saturday nights.  If this schedule doesn’t get the blood pumping, you might want to go see your primary doctor,” Rose added with a chuckle.
 
The 2020 season will kick off with the ‘Kingdom of Speed 100 Weekend’ featuring the 60 Over Special-Doug Hoffman Memorial Race on March 28th and 29th.  Friday night gets things going with an open practice for any participating weekend divisions.  Saturday and Sunday will showcase the Modifieds vying for a 60-lap  $6,000 first-place prize while the 358 ‘spec’ Small Blocks battle it out for $4,000 in their 40-lapper.  The Speedstrs will make their first of 9 appearances in 2020, while 602 Sportsman, Street Stocks, and 305 MASS Sprints round out what is sure to be a must-see opening day weekend!
 
The 2020 point chase gets underway on Saturday, April 10.,  There are 17 scheduled traditional point races for the Spirit Auto Center Modifieds throughout the upcoming season.  The South Jersey Overhead Door 602 Sportsman will crown a champion 19 point races, while the Sunbelt Rental Outlaw Stocks will battle it out over 21 races.  The 2020 Point Champions will be crowned following the final night of points on Saturday, September 12th.

The ever-popular Monster Truck Throwdown returns to Bridgeport for two separate two-day events.  With last year’s standing-room only sold out shows, Bridgeport management and MTT decided to give the fans what they want…another weekend of car-crushing excitement!  The unofficial start of summer will kick off at Bridgeport Speedway during Memorial Day Weekend.  Monster Truck Throwdown will make their first appearance of 2020 on Saturday, May 23 and Sunday, May 24.  Then on Saturday and Sunday, September 19th and 20th will see the return of MTT.  Be sure to witness iconic trucks up close such as ‘Avenger’, ‘Crustacean’, ‘Over Bored’, ‘Miss Over Bored’, ‘Lumberjack’ and more.

The wingless daredevils will be making their third straight appearance at the South Jersey speedway.  Previous winners Kevin Thomas Jr. and Jason McDougal will be out in full force with stars Brady Bacon, Tyler Courtney, CJ Leary, and many more.  Joining USAC will be the mighty Modifieds for this tremendous double header program.
On Sunday, July 5th, the ‘All American 40’ holiday show returns.  Joining the Modifieds, 602 Sportsman, and Street Stocks will be the first appearance of the URC 360 Sprint Cars.  URC returns in November for their traditional two-day show during Wildcard Weekend.  URC has a strong history at Bridgeport Speedway and 2020 should see car counts grow even more with the new layout of the sprint car-friendly facility.
The Super DIRTcar Series will be making their return to Bridgeport for the all-new ‘King of the Big Blocks’ event after a two-year hiatus on Wednesday, July 29.  The well-traveled Big Block circuit has some of the best drivers to offer in the modified ranks.  Mat Williamson is the reigning SDS champion and will lead a brigade of Big Blocks that include Matt Sheppard, Billy Decker, Jimmy Phelps, Peter Brittain, Brett Hearn, Danny Johnson, Ryan Godown, Larry Wight, Mike Mahaney, Tim Fuller, Demetrios Drellos, Jack Lehner, and plenty of others on this special Wednesday evening.  Joining the 900 plus horse power ground pounders will be the stars of the Speedstrs for this must-see double header.

The USAC Speedstrs will bring their talents East from the Action Track to Bridgeport for 9 appearances throughout the 2020 season.  Just some of the drivers that will be giving the fans pure excitement will be Billy Pauch Jr., Tim Buckwalter, Billy Pauch Sr., Jeff Strunk, Alex Yankowski, Matt Janisch, Briggs Danner, Earl Paules, Alex Bright, Trevor Kobylarz, and TJ Mayberry.  The Speedstrs will be in action during Kingdom of Speed 100 Weekend, April 18, May 2, May 30, July 18, July 29, September 5, Rumble on the River Weekend, and Wildcard Weekend.
 
On May 30 and June 13 both tracks at the “Kingdom of Speed” will be in action in what is dubbed as a ‘Combo Event’.  Bridgeport and the Spirit 1/4 mile will race on these Saturday programs.  602 Crate Sportsman, MASS Sprints, Street Stocks, Speedstrs, 4 Cylinders, 8 Cylinders, 270 and 600 Micro Sprints, and Slingshots will be part of one or both of these ‘Combo Events’.  
 
Bridgeport Speedway will close out the 2020 season with a pair of big three-day weekend programs…The ‘Rumble on the River’ in September and ‘Wildcard Weekend’ in November.   
The three-day September affair will feature the USAC East Coast Wingless Sprints, Speedstrs, Modifieds, 358 ‘spec’ Small Blocks, Street Stocks, 602 Sportsman plus Underdog 20, 4 Cylinders & 8 Cyinders.  ‘Wildcard Weekend’ will showcase the URC Sprints for two complete shows, Speedstrs, Modifieds, Street Stocks, 602 Sportsman, 4 Cylinders, & 8 Cylinders.  
 
The 602 Sportsman Rookie will return as well in 2020.  “We’ve had quite a few calls in regards to the rookies in 2020.  We need the teams to register and sign up with us over the next few months then we can start adding race dates to the schedule,” general manager Danny Serrano pointed out.
The 4 Cylinder and 8 Cylinders will be making their return to the newly constructed facility as well in 2020.  “We’ve had multiple teams already calling us about racing these two divisions on the new track.  We will be working with neighboring speedways so we can come up with dates that are beneficial for two divisions,” offered Serrano.  Dates for both classes will be announced in the near future.
Those are just the highlights of the action-packed 2020 season at Bridgeport Speedway!  Bridgeport offers something for every race fan.

One team looking to do just that is the ARCA Menards Series reigning championship team, Venturini Motorsports.
 
"This is a great schedule with excellent spacing between events," said Venturini Motorsports co-owner Billy Venturini. "Our team will continue to compete in the ARCA Menards Series, as we have since 1982, but this schedule gives us the flexibility to run the Toledo race, as well as the rest of the ARCA Menards East events. It's great to be able to offer this to the young drivers we are working with in 2020 and beyond."
 
Toledo's sister track, Flat Rock Speedway, located just 30 miles north of Toledo Speedway, will flip race nights with Toledo to accommodate the Saturday, May 16 show.

Attica Raceway Park and AFCS hand out over $76,000 in point funds

 

 
ATTICA, Ohio - Attica Raceway Park put the wraps to it's 32nd season of racing Saturday, Nov. 23, handing out awards to the top 10 in points in the track's three weekly divisions. The inaugural season of the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series (AFCS) 410 Sprint Division Presented by the Baumann Auto Group was also celebrated during the banquet. In total, over $76,000 in point fund money between the track and series was handed out 33 drivers.
 
Attica Raceway Park Promoter John Bores also addressed the big crowd, saying plans are full steam ahead for the 2020 racing season that begins in March.
 
"We put new dirt on the track last winter and it wasn't any good and I take responsibility for that. Pork Chop (Brandon Smith) and the guys got it a lot better as the season went on but it wasn't what we expect at Attica Raceway Park. We have put new clay on the track and hopefully the surface will be a lot better," Bores said. "The schedule will pretty much be the same as last year with our signature event the Brad Doty Classic on Tuesday, July 14. It's been a real pleasure working with Brad and we look forward to great weather this year. I want to thank Duane Hancock for all his hard work putting the AFCS together to help the race teams throughout the season. Of course, we couldn't do this without all our sponsors, race teams and great fans."
 
During the awards ceremony, nearly every driver in the top 10 in points in the track's weekly divisions said they would return to compete at Attica in 2020. Hancock also indicated marketing partners and the great supporters of the AFCS are already signing up to be a part of the series next season. Brad Doty announced the 32nd Annual Brad Doty Classic will be sanctioned once again by the NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaw Sprint Car Series in 2020.
 
Here's a look the top 10 in points in the Callie's Performance Products 410 Sprints for 2019:

Attica’s 2010 305 champion, 2012 FAST 305 champion, 2013 Attica 410 rookie of the year, 2017 FAST 410 champion and 2019 Kistler Racing Products/All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads Attica Fremont Championship Series presented by the Baumann Auto Group titlist, Foos competed in all 14 A-mains in 2019.

Earn 2019 Gas City I-69 Speedway Championships

 

GAS CITY, Ind., Nov. 7 — When asked why he likes to race at Gas City I-69 Speedway, Thomas Meseraull had a simple answer. He said he likes Gas City because he usually does well there.

 

That was certainly the case in 2019. The San Jose, Calif. native won seven non-wing sprint car features at the quarter-mile dirt oval in 2019 to earn the championship at the ultra-competitive track, which averaged 27.3 sprint cars for a regular Friday-night show and presented several features which were decided by mere inches.

 

A total of 105 drivers earned points in the non-wing sprint car division as the track continued its tradition of being one of the premier short-track motorsports entertainment facilities in the country. Despite running four or more divisions weekly on Friday nights, the well-run programs were usually completed around 11 p.m.

 

And remarkably in a year fraught with rainouts, Gas City lost only two shows to Mother Nature.

 

Meseraull, of Waveland, Ind., drove a sprint car owned by Tom Eades of Sharpsville, Ind. for six of his seven victories. Eades’ DRC chassis is powered by a Stensland-prepared engine and it’s sponsored by Physical Medicine Consultants of Fort Wayne, Ind. Allen Brown of Kokomo, Ind. is the team’s chief mechanic.

 

T-Mez’s other victory came in the Don Whitney Racing No. 00, which is a Hawk chassis sponsored by Ultracell and Physical Medicine Consultants. He led every lap of the second annual Jerry Gappens Sr. Memorial in June in that car.

 

Meseraull, 38, had three wins in May, one each in June and July, and two in August.

 

He also won Gas City’s track championship in 2010.

 

After finishing third in 2018, Tyler Hewitt of Marion, Ind. finished second in the championship in 2019. He scored his first career sprint victory in the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS) non-wing sprint car feature on Aug. 9 and then took the top honors in the final regular non-wing sprint car feature of the year at the track on Oct. 5 during the first annual Fall Festival of Speed. John and Sherril Long of Albany, Ind. own the One More Time Motorsports Maxim he drives, which is powered by an Evan Jackson-prepped engine.

 

Cole Ketcham of Muncie, Ind. didn’t win a feature at Gas City in 2019 but he was often in the top five, which earned him third place in the track championship. Scotty Weir of Marion, Ind. wasn’t a feature winner at Gas City this year either but he placed fourth in the final point standings followed by defending track champion Clinton Boyles of Brownsburg, Ind., who had two feature victories in 2019.

 

Other winners of “regular” non-wing 410 sprint car features at the Grant County track in 2019 were Kevin Thomas Jr. of Avon, Ind.; Shane Cottle of Kansas, Ill.; Shane Cockrum of Benton, Ill., and Matt Westfall of Pleasant Hill, Ohio.

 

Cottle and Chris Windom of Canton, Ill. also won USAC AMSOIL national sprint car features at Gas City in 2019. Cottle won during Indiana Sprint Week in July while Windom was victorious in the second annual James Dean Classic in September.

 

Justin Grant of Avon, Ind. won the USAC NOS national midget race at Gas City in June as part of USAC Midget Week.

 

Sixteen-year-old Brayden Clark of Tipton, Ind. was the top rookie in the non-wing sprint car division and finished seventh in the final point standings, right behind Adam Byrkett of Burnettsville, Ind. Clark’s family-owned DRC uses an Evan Jackson engine and it’s sponsored by G&G Oil, Quality Pallet and State Farm. Clark is currently a junior at Tipton High School.

 

Anthony D’Alessio of Gas City; Westfall, and Tim Creech II of Indianapolis rounded out the top 10 for the season.

 

Scott Orr of Columbia City, Ind. won his fourth Gas City track championship for the United Midwestern Promoters (UMP) modified division. The first of his two feature victories didn’t come until July, but his consistent top-five finishes paid off. His Orr Motorsports No. 88 is sponsored by Alexander’s Garage and Orr Custom Powder Coating.

 

Bill Griffith of Van Buren, Ohio finished second in the modified division, in which 97 drivers earned points. Andy Bishop of Gas City, who was also the track’s street stock champion, finished third in the UMP modified point standings.

 

Derek Losh of Rensselaer, Ind. won six features but placed fourth in the final point standings. Clayton Bryant of Fort Wayne, Ind., 29, finished fifth in the overall championship and won the Rookie of the Year honors for the division. He got his first feature victory in August and duplicated that feat at the season finale in October.

 

Besides Orr, Losh and Bryant, other UMP modified feature winners in 2019 at Gas City were 17-year-old Logan Kirkman of Richmond, Ind.; Dylan Woodling of Warsaw, Ind.; Zeke McKenzie of Claypool, Ind., and defending champion Dillon Nusbaum of Warsaw, Ind.

 

Bishop won eight street stock features enroute to that championship in the Thompson Trucking No. 14. Mike Fincher of Rochester, Ind. finished second in the final street stock point standings, while Larry Persinger of Jonesboro, Ind. placed third and also earned the Rookie of the Year honors. Veterans Ron Flaugh of Converse, Ind. placed fourth for the season and Ervin Turner of Marion, Ind. finished fifth out of 53 drivers.

 

Besides Bishop other street stock feature winners included Joey Spiewak of Merrillville, Ind.; David Short of Winamac, Ind.; Tim Wilber of Coldwater, Mich.; Justin Van Drunen of Crown Point, Ind. and James Headley of Marion, Ind.

 

The latter’s 15-year-old son, popular James (aka JimTom) Headley Jr. of Wabash, Ind., is the track’s 2019 hornet champion. He won seven features during the course of the year in the family’s No. 00, which is sponsored by Dudding’s Heating and Cooling, Garriott Electric, Edwards Automotive and TJR Trucking. He’s in the class of 2022 at Southwood Junior-Senior High School.

 

Two drivers from Columbia City, Ind. finished second and third in the hornet championship. Jacob Beard was second, while Randy Brommer placed third.

 

The champion’s father, James Headley, was fourth for the year in the hornets with six victories. In June he was also inducted into the track’s “Walk of Fame” for being the winningest driver in track history. Dustin Franks of Portland, Ind., 27, finished fifth in the hornet point standings out of 64 drivers and was the division’s Rookie of the Year.

 

Besides the two Headleys, other hornet feature winners in 2019 included Josh Gamlin of Kokomo, Ind.; Gage Allen of Warren, Ind., and Cardell Moore of Versailles, Ind.

 

In addition to these four main divisions, other types of race cars that were in action at Gas City I-69 Speedway in 2019 included winged 410, 360 and 305 sprint cars; vintage sprint cars; midgets; USAC SpeeD2 midgets; mini-sprints; micro-sprints; TQs; late models, super streets and tough trucks. There were even competitions for monster trucks, school buses, mini-vans, vehicles pulling trailers, and moms driving passenger cars.

 

The complete point standings are posted on the track’s website at GasCityI69Speedway.com. Fans can also follow it on Facebook (@GasCitySpeedwayOnTheGas), Twitter (@GasCitySpeedway) and Instagram (@GasCitySpeedway).

ARCA Menards Series East 2020 Schedule includes Toledo date; Seven-Race Format Features Short-Track Gauntlet

 

TOLEDO, Ohio (November 6, 2019) - The ARCA Menards Series East officially enters a new era with a seven-race slate in 2020 that will provide a mix of short-track showcases and national series companion events. The compact stand-alone schedule will also allow for the opportunity for competitors to compete for the new ten-race ARCA Menards Series Showdown championship.

 

The East season will kick off as the main event of the 54th World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing at Florida's New Smyrna Speedway on Monday, February 10. The champion will be crowned on Saturday, September 12 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway's Full Throttle Fall Weekend.

 

Sam Mayer captured the 2019 East title at 16 years of age to become the youngest national or regional series champion in NASCAR history. He's already counting down the days until the green flag at New Smyrna.

 

"I am looking forward to returning to the East series to defend my title in 2020," Mayer said. "I had so much fun racing in that series this year and learned so much at every race. The competition was tough, and I'm sure it will be even better next year. With the series combining, it will give me the opportunity to race against some new drivers and become more competitive. Hopefully we can go out and win a bunch of races and take home another East series championship."

 

"We are really looking forward to being a part of the new East series with Sam Mayer," said Keith Barnwell, GMS Racing manager of driver development and special projects. "This will be a great series for young drivers to hone their skills and prepare for the next phase of their careers. We consider the East series like our home games, and when we travel for the Showdown it will be like home and away. We are looking for the opportunity to defend our home races and our title."

 

With the blending of the ARCA Menards Series with the newly renamed ARCA Menards Series East and West, and a consolidated rulebook to go along with it, opportunities now exist for traditional ARCA Menards Series teams to test the waters in the East Series. One team looking to do just that is the ARCA Menards Series reigning championship team, Venturini Motorsports.

 

"This is a great schedule with excellent spacing between events," said Venturini Motorsports co-owner Billy Venturini. "Our team will continue to compete in the ARCA Menards Series, as we have since 1982, but this schedule gives us the flexibility to run these seven races as well. It's great to be able to offer this to the young drivers we are working with in 2020 and beyond."

 

Other schedule highlights include:

  • New Smyrna Speedway will host the season opener for the seventh consecutive season. The high-banked half-mile is just ten miles from Daytona International Speedway, and the World Series runs parallel to DAYTONA Speedweeks Presented By AdventHealth at the "World Center of Racing." Daytona will be the site of the opener of ARCA's 68th season, with the Lucas Oil 200 Driven by General Tire on Saturday, February 8.

  • A pair of tracks that have hosted both East and ARCA races will be featured on the ARCA Menards Series East calendar: Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Florida, and Marne, Michigan's Berlin Raceway. Five Flags is the home of the Super Late Model crown jewel, the Snowball Derby, held annually in December. The quick half-mile will be the second race on the East schedule on Saturday, March 14. Berlin is the home track of former NASCAR Gander Trucks champion Johnny Benson and has been integral in the early careers of other NASCAR Hall of Famers such as Rusty Wallace and Mark Martin.

  • Toledo Speedway will also transition from the ARCA Menards Series on Saturday, May 16 to give the series a cornerstone event in the Midwest. Toledo's high-speed half-mile will give a great test for the East drivers and teams. The race will now be the headline event of a full Saturday of racing activity at the popular Glass City oval.

  • The series will be part of two short-track national series weekends: Bristol Motor Speedway on Saturday, April 4, and Dover International Speedway on Friday, August 21. Bristol, the "World's Fastest Half-Mile," was swept by Mayer in 2019.

BIG WEEKEND PLANNED FOR 2019 BRIDGEPORT FINALE


 
The Bridgeport Speedway will wave the checkered flag on the 2019 season with a three day weekend of racing scheduled. This weekend of racing will mark the final events to be run on Bridgeport's 5/8th mile speedway as the speed plant transitions from the Ramey family's operation into the hands of Bridgeport's new owners, Doug and Brittany Rose.  Rose has plans to replace the 5/8th mile track with a new half mile facility for the 2020 season.

 
When scheduling the 2019 season, Bridgeport management decided to combine two big racing events into one - by combining the United Racing Club's Big Track Classic with Bridgeport's Wild Card Weekend.  Fans will be able to see five divisions of racing throughout the weekend that will include Sprint Cars, Big Block Modifieds, Small Block Modifieds, 602 Crate Sportsman as well as Outlaw Stocks in Bridgeport's final weekend of racing.
 

 
The winged sprint cars of Capitol Renegade United Racing Club will begin their event on Friday evening, sponsored by BRB Contractors.  Friday night's events will include a full show of qualifying and a twenty-five lap feature for URC.  Any non-winners in the South Jersey Overhead Door 602 Crate Sportsman division will be eligible to compete in the Underdog 20, a twenty lap feature event only.  The Sunbelt Rentals Outlaw Stocks will be the third division on Friday night's program as they compete in qualifying events and a feature event which will serve as the fourth hand of the 2019 Poker Series for this division.   Pit gates will open at 3 pm and grandstand gates at 6pm.  Racing will get underway at 7:30 on Friday.

 
BRB Contractors will sponsor Friday night's events.  Bob Lilick is the owner/operator of BRB Contractors and has been involved in auto racing for many years, fielding multiple cars in different divisions of racing for his sons.  BRB Contractors is an industrial, commercial and residential demolition, excavation and paving company and has been in business for over seventeen years.  Contact BRB Contractors for all of our construction needs by calling (610) 275-0768.

 
The Small Block Modifieds will share the stage with URC for Saturday's events sponsored by Auto Plus of  Bensalem, Penndel, and Oxford Valley.

 
 There will also be open practice sessions for competitors who will take part in Sunday's Big Block Modified, 602 Crate Sportsman and Outlaw Stock events in the fifth and final hand of the 2019 Poker Series.                             .

 
At the end of Saturday's events, the URC competitor with the best results for the two days of competition will receive the coveted Midge Miller Memorial Trophy.  This uniquue award has once again been created by Cold Hard Art and will be pursued by every driver who competes in this event.

 
URC's 2019 champion will also be determined this weekend as Josh Weller seeks to defend his title against a hard charging Chad Layton and Ritter Racing.

 
Pit gates will open at 1pm on Saturday with the grandstand opening one hour later.  Racing will get underway at 5pm.

 
Auto Plus Auto Parts is U.S. based with over 3500 Team Members and more than 270 locations throughout the country.  Since 2010. Auto Plus has made a considerable investment in growth through acquisition and technology.  Auto Plus Auto Parts maintains one of the most extensive catalogs of name brand and trade trusted parts throughout the industry.

 
Sunday's events will feature the final hand of the 2019 Poker Series for the Spirit Auto Center Big Block Modifieds, the South Jersey Overhead Door 602 Crate Sportsman and the Sunbelt Rentals Outlaw Stocks.  Sunday's events are sponsored by K&A Excavating Company, Inc.  The Big Block Modifieds will compete in a forty lap feature event - Gone But Not Forgotten - as Doug Hoffman is remembered for his contributions as both a competitor and a promoter of the Bridgeport Speedway.  

 
Pit gates will open at noon on Sunday followed by the grandstand gates at 2pm.  Racing will get underway at 4pm. 

 
  K&A Excavating is a company who has built their reputation on their commitment to providing quality service – a commitment that has earned them many valuable customers over the years.  With more than thirty years of experience, K&A Excavating is the “go to” company when you need asphalt removal, land clearing or site preparation.  Only the best equipment is used for each job by a skilled staff who are able to perform the tasks involved in all projects.  K&A’s mission statement is to provide customers with courteous and friendly service and quality workmanship.
