Bounty Placed on Champ Kart Points Leader Sean Wales

 

PELETIER, NC – A $150 bounty has been placed on reigning Champ Kart division champion Sean Wales prior to Sunday’s WITN Memorial Classic at Bobby Watson’s Carteret County Speedway.

 

Wales has won the last five Champ Kart races held at Carteret County Speedway and currently has a 3-0 record in 2019.  With Wales’ dominance continuing in the division, a $150 bounty has been placed on him by U-CAR competitor Steve Sullivan, Mini Cup racer Charles Pudenz, and Race22.com managing editor Andy Marquis.

 

(Marquis is also the announcer and public relations representative for Carteret County Speedway.)

 

For the bounty to be collected by one of Wales’ competitors, they must win the race, must race Wales clean, and Wales must be running competitively at the conclusion of the race.  Wales can, conversely, collect the bounty by electing to start at the rear of the field and winning the race – which Wales has already said he would do.

 

“It is what it is,” Wales said.  “I’ve had people messaging me all day talking about it.  I’ll start at the back Sunday night.  I won’t qualify.”

 

The bounty will be paid out on top of the $200 purse Carteret County Speedway pays to the winner of the Champ Kart feature.

 

The Champ Karts will be in action for 20 laps in the WITN Memorial Classic presented by Moore’s Barbeque.  Late Models, Legends, Mini-Stocks, U-CARs, Bandoleros and the Southern Ground Pounders will also all be in action on Sunday night.  Tickets are $15 while kids 10 and under get in free.

THERE’S A STORM HEADING EAST. . . . . . . . . ..

USAC AMSOIL SPRINT CAR NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP EASTERN STORM OPENS AT GRANDVIEW TUESDAY NIGHT, JUNE 11, $10,000 TO WIN JESSE HOCKETT CLASSIC

 

BECHTELSVILLE, PA   . . . . .Rain and bad weather has not been a friend to local short track racing of late, but all race fans welcome and look forward to this storm,  the thirteenth annual EASTERN STORM for the USAC AMSOIL Non-Wing Sprint Cars, and it’s coming to the Grandview Speedway on Tuesday night, June 11 with the $10,000 to win Jesse Hockett Classic.   The NASCAR 358 Modifieds will be part of this big doubleheader with qualifying events leading up to the 30 lap, $3,000 to win feature even.

 

This wildly popular traveling series comes east just one time a year and this show is one you just can’t miss.   Watch the non-wing sprints slide and glide around the one-third mile high banked Grandview Speedway and you’ll see some wheel banging, rooster tails and wheelies.   And that’s just warm-ups. 

 

For the thirteenth consecutive year, the USAC AMSOIL Non Wing Sprint Car National Championship returns East with stops at the Grandview Speedway, Bridgeport Speedway,  BAPS Motor Speedway, Port Royal and Weedsport Speedway’s.    The five race swing, in keeping with tradition will open with the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill signature event at the Grandview Speedway.   The Tuesday night, June 11 show will boast the USAC  $10,000 to win Jesse Hockett Classic joined by the 358 NASCAR Modifieds  with racing getting underway at 7:30 PM.  This year also marks the 30th Anniversary of the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series.

 

Wednesday night, June 12 the Bridgeport Speedway will present the USAC AMSOIL Non-Wing sprints in a double header with the 600 micros, Thursday night, June 13  the tour moves to the BAP’S Speedway joined by the 360 Sprints and Super Sportsman.   Saturday night, June 15  the traveling non-wing racers invade the Port Royal Speedway before closing out the swing at the popular Weedsport Speedway in Weedsport, NY on Sunday night, June 16.    Defending USAC Eastern Storm Champion Chris Windom is already planning his trip East.  

 

USAC brings a long and rich history especially to Berks County.  USAC first raced in Berks County at the Reading Fairgrounds in 1956 and it was Oley, PA driver Tommy Hinnershitz who won the first three USAC events on the Reading half-mile.   The USAC/Berks County tradition continued until April 1979 when Paul Pitzer took the win at what would be the final USAC event at the  Reading Fairgrounds. 

 

Grandview Track Owner Bruce Rogers and Thunder on the Hills’ Bob Miller  made several attempts to bring 410 non-wing sprint cars back to Berks County,  presenting CRA and SCRA events in the 1990’s .    After many discussions, a deal was worked out and in June 2007, USAC made the trip to Grandview and it was Levi Jones who took the win in a historic USAC return to Berks County.    Now in 2019, the Eastern Storm will mark its’ thirteenth tour to the East, opening on the famed “hill” of Grandview Speedway.

 

Drivers from all over the country will gather on the “hill” Tuesday night, June 11 for the 40 lap Jesse Hockett Classic and the roster will include Chris Windom, Justin Grant, C.J. Leary, Brady Bacon, Chase Stockon, Justin Grant, Tyler Courtney and Robert Ballou.

 

The Berks County one-third mile high banked Grandview Speedway is just the perfect setting for a USAC National Non-Win Championship event.    USAC time trials at Grandview are usually more exciting than the main divisions elsewhere, so don’t miss time trials.

 

Advance tickets may be ordered for the Tuesday, June 11 USAC Sprints & Modified show by calling 443 513 4456.   Please speak slowly and clearly when leaving a message and be sure to leave your name and number of tickets you will need.  Feel free to leave your phone number as well.   Tickets may be paid for and picked up at the WILL CALL Window on race night after 3:30 PM.   These tickets will entitle you to enter the grandstands at 4:30.    Adult admission tickets are $30, children 6 to 11 $10 and children five and under will be admitted for free.

 

 

Start planning now for the 13th Annual Eastern Swing,  Tuesday night, June 11 to Sunday night, June 16.

LEGENDARY WALLY PANKRATZ RACING AT PERRIS ON SATURDAY!
 
(Perris, CA, May 22, 2019) Perris Auto Speedway fans will get an extra treat at the annual “Salute to Indy” this Saturday night, May 25th.  Legendary West Coast open-wheel driver Wally Pankratz will be making his first appearance in two years at the famous Riverside County clay oval in The PAS Senior Sprint Cars.

 
 
sx#413 - Craig Road - Wally Pankratz.jpg

Pankratz, the son of former racer and Indy Car builder Bob Pankratz, has been racing open wheel cars for 49-years.  He has competed in and won across the country in sprint cars, super modifieds, midgets and silver crown cars.  He has won championships in the USAC Western Midget Series, the old Super Modified Racing Association, Hanford Speedway Sprint Cars, Ascot Super Midgets and two years ago, at the young age of 71, in the Ventura Senior Sprint Cars.  All told, he has won 114-main events in his career and he was inducted into the National Midget Racing Hall of Fame in Belleville, Kansas in 2006 (one year before his father).
 
About a dozen years ago, Pankratz, now 73-years-old, officially retired from racing.  However, someone apparently forgot to tell him that in order to retire, you must stop driving in races.  Even though he announced that he was done, he just kept on competing. 
 
“I actually did retire for a couple of years,” the Orange resident said with a laugh.  “I was trying to get my driving school off the ground, and somebody had a friend who wanted to get into racing and take the school, but they had never heard of me.  I told my wife maybe I should start racing the Focus Midget to keep my name out there.  She went for it and I am still racing today.”
 
These days Pankratz confines most of his racing to the Senior Sprint Car Series (drivers 40 and older) at the Ventura Raceway.  He drives for car owner Ray Swann and says he will keep on driving for as long as Swann wants him to.
 
“I keep driving because of Ray Swann,” Pankratz said.  “He is 84-years-old, and he just loves it.  His crew guys say he beams when they go to the races.  At the end of last year, he asked me if I wanted to do this again.  I told him if he wanted to, yes, I would do it.  So, we are back at it again.  My wife Barbara is on board and she loves Ray.   As long as he wants to do it, I will do it to.”
 
A former defensive back at Fullerton Junior College and Idaho State, Pankratz attended training camp as a free agent with the San Diego Chargers in the 1960s.  He once joked that the size of the players in camp convinced him to get into racing.  Joke or not, he fashioned a wonderful career.  One of the goals of his was to race Indy Cars and he did get the opportunity in the early 1980s driving for former CRA driver Norm Hall at Phoenix International Raceway and Riverside Raceway.
 
If Pankratz ever stops racing himself, the family name will still be around.  His daughter Randi began her racing career at the old quarter midget track in Pomona in the early 1980s.  Competitive like her father, she progressed from the quarter-midgets to the now-defunct USAC Three-Quarter Midget Series.  For more than two decades now, she has been a regular, and one of the most popular drivers, in the USAC Western Midget Series.
 
All active and retired California Highway Patrol Officers will be admitted to this Saturday’s race free.  All they have to do is show their CHP badge or id at the ticket window and they will be given a free ticket. 
 
Spectator gates for Saturday’s race will open at 5:00 P.M. and the first 200 fans through the front gate will receive a free stadium cup courtesy of the American Cancer Society.  The first race will take the green flag at 7:00.
 
Tickets for Saturday’s race are $25.00 for adults.  Seniors 65 and over get in for $20.00.  For active military with proper id and their spouse or date, it is $5.00 each.  Teens 13-18 with their school id and kids 6-12 get in for $5.00.  Children 5 and under are free.  Parking on the fairgrounds is $8.00.
 
Camping on the fairgrounds opens at noon on Friday.  Tailgating on the grassy area outside of turn four begins at 1:00 P.M. on Saturday. 
 
Advance tickets for all Perris Auto Speedway events are available 24-hours a day online at https://bit.ly/2Aa50Lj or by calling 1-800-595-4849.  If you do not wish to buy tickets in advance for any race, there will be plenty of tickets for everyone at the ticket window on race night.
 
Perris Auto Speedway is conveniently located on the SoCal Fair and Event Center (home of October’s Southern California Fair), approximately one hour east of Los Angeles and one-hour North of San Diego. To get to the track, take the 215 freeway, on the Ramona Expressway and go three miles east to the fairgrounds. For directions on MapQuest, the address to enter is: 18700 Lake Perris Drive and the zip code is 92571.

CHP OFFICERS ADMITTED FREE TO SATURDAY’S SALUTE TO INDY SPRINT CAR RACE AT PERRIS!

 
(Perris, CA, May 21, 2019) This Saturday night when Perris Auto Speedway hosts the annual “Salute to Indy” for the Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Cars, all active and retired California Highway Patrol Officers will be admitted to the race for free.  All they have to do is show their CHP badge at the ticket window and they will be given a free ticket.  Once inside, the officers will have someone to cheer for as second-year CHP officer Jeff Dyer will be racing in the show.

The idea of admitting CHP members free came about when it came to light that Dyer, who was born in West Covina and went to Lutheran High in La Verne, recently received an award from “Mothers Against Drunk Drivers” (M.A.D.D.) for stopping and arresting 58 drunk drivers in 2018. 
 
“We heard of the great award Jeff received for keeping us safe and protected while we are on the road,” promoter Don Kazarian said.  “He is not the only one out there.  We want to show all CHP officers that we appreciate the job they are doing, so we have decided to let them in free on Saturday.  And, they get to come watch one of their own racing on the track.”    
 
Many think of sprint cars as the most dangerous form of auto racing.  For Dyer, who now resides in Bermuda Dunes, sprint cars are a walk in the park.  Before becoming a CHP officer in 2017, he performed one of the most dangerous jobs in the United States Army.  He was an Explosive Ordinance Disposal team leader.  In other words, for 13-years he disarmed bombs and explosives for a living, and in that time served multiple tours of duty in Afghanistan and Iraq.
 
“It is a cool thing that the “Mothers Against Drunk Drivers” have a good program out there,” Dyer said.  “I was honored to receive the award and it feels good that they recognize people who are out there working hard.  I wish I did not have to arrest anybody, but it is nice to get the people who have had too much to drink and decided to make a poor decision off the road.”
 
While Dyer enjoyed the Army life, he had a couple of dreams he wanted to fulfill.  One was racing a sprint car, which he now does for car owner Cal Smith in the USAC/CRA Series and in his own car in the California Lightning Sprint Car Series.  Unlike many who dream of racing, he had no ambitions to drive in NASCAR or Indy Cars.  Going to Ascot when he was a child, all he ever wanted to race was sprint cars. 
 
The other dream he had was driving a CHP cruiser.
 
“Yes, that is true,” Dyer laughed when asked about his dreams.  “I love my job.  The best part of it is getting to help stranded motorists.  Also meeting people and the feeling of a sense of worth.  Likewise, I love racing in both the USAC/CRA Series and the California Lightning Sprint Car Series.”
 
Spectator gates for Saturday’s race will open at 5:00 P.M. and the first 200 fans through the front gate will receive a free stadium cup courtesy of the American Cancer Society.  The first race will take the green flag at 7:00.
 
Tickets for Saturday’s race are $25.00 for adults.  Seniors 65 and over get in for $20.00.  For active military with proper id and their spouse or date, it is $5.00 each.  Teens 13-18 with their school id and kids 6-12 get in for $5.00.  Children 5 and under are free.  Parking on the fairgrounds is $8.00.

Randy Hewett Returns to Carteret County After Offseason Stroke

PELETIER, NC – Randy Hewett is thankful to be alive and is excited to get back on track at Bobby Watson’s Carteret County Speedway.  On Sunday night, he will make his return during the Sportsman’s Wholesale Mini-Stock portion of the WITN Memorial Classic.

 

Hewett, 48, from Supply, North Carolina, was sidelined for the first four weeks after suffering two mild strokes during the offseason.  After a medical procedure was done a couple weeks ago to fix an aneurysm, he’s feeling healthy and is ready to go racing on Sunday night.

 

“I had two strokes,” Hewett said.  “They were small strokes but they were strokes nevertheless.  They found out I had an aneurysm behind my eye.  Wednesday before last, they operated on me and fixed it.  They put titanium steel in there and took care of it.  I feel 100 percent now.”

 

Hewett has been a regular in the Mini-Stock division at Carteret County Speedway for years.  However, he was forced to miss the first four races.  Despite being out of the car, the racing community rallied around him.

 

During the Clash at the Coast on April 27th, fellow Mini-Stock racer Kris Hetu walked around the pits raising money for Hewett while Late Model competitor Chris Burns donated a door from one of his Late Model bodies which was signed by all the racers.  After scoring a podium finish in the Clash, Hetu presented the door and the money to Hewett in victory lane.

 

“I can’t thank everybody enough for what they’ve done,” Hewett remarked.  “It was wonderful what they did, not just the money that they raised, but the gesture.  The door is hanging in my trailer.  It’s a family here.  Chris Burns asked about me a little while ago when he pulled in.”

 

Hewett found his happy place on Saturday, despite some mechanical issues, as he logged his first laps of the year in preparation for Sunday’s Memorial Classic.  For Hewett, like many other racers, being in the cockpit of his racecar seemingly cured all his ills.

 

“It feels really good to be in the car,” Hewett commented.  “This is the best I’ve felt inside the racecar for two or three years.  I’m just ready for next weekend.

 

Hewett turned some of the quickest laps he’s run at Carteret County Speedway and is optimistic he can have a good run.

 

“I’m looking to win.  I just ran an 18.90 which is pretty good for here.  I did it on old tires.  If we can get the motor back together, I’m looking for at least a top-three on Sunday.  I’ve never finished in the top-three [at Carteret County].  Fourth is my best finish.  I’ve got a bunch of fourth place finishes but I think it’s time to step up and get the job done.”

 

Hewett has been racing since 1993, starting out at Myrtle Beach Speedway in South Carolina.  Like many other racers, it was something that he was born into.

 

“My dad, Jimmy Hewett, raced dirt Late Models before I was born,” Hewett explained.  “I just followed after him.  He dragged me around in diapers at the racetrack and one thing led to another, and here I am.  The first year I raced was in 1993 at Myrtle Beach Speedway.  I’ve got some wins there but don’t have any wins anywhere else so I want to change that.”

 

Hewett will compete in his no. 55 car in the Sportsman’s Wholesale Mini-Stock Division in Sunday night’s WITN-TV Memorial Classic presented by Moore’s Old-Tyme Barbeque Chicken & Seafood.  Late Models, Legends, U-CARs, Champ Karts, Bandoleros and the Southern Ground Pounders will also be in action.

 

Festivities at Carteret County Speedway get underway at 6pm with the meet-and-greet and the Tribute to America pre-race show.  Green flag racing will get underway at 7:15pm.  Tickets are $15 for adults while kids 10 and under get in free.

AGCO Jackson Nationals Rising Toward the Top of Winged Sprint Car Racing Events

 

Inside Line Promotions - JACKSON, Minn. (May 20, 2019) - It hasn't taken long for the AGCO Jackson Nationals to become one of winged sprint car racing's biggest events of the year.

 

As the facility and race track have undergone extensive renovations during the last few years, so has the marquee World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series event. This year's 41st edition of the tripleheader runs June 27-29.

It offers one of the largest payouts in the sport with more than $300,000 on the line. Both preliminary nights pay $10,000 to win and the finale is $41,000 to win and $3,000 to start.

 

The event is in its fifth consecutive year of having 410ci winged sprint cars as the featured division and during each of the previous four seasons a different winner has emerged. Donny Schatz claimed last year's event title with Brad Sweet winning in 2017, which was the first year it was sanctioned by the World of Outlaws. Kerry Madsen was victorious in 2016 and Sammy Swindell captured the crown in 2015.

 

On top of the action on the track, there are plenty of activities during that weekend to entertain the fans.

 

It begins with a hauler parade on Wednesday, June 26, at 6:30 p.m., which will be followed by the Fan Fest. Race cars will be on display along with a $5 Burger Bar and live music from Hicktown Mafia starting at 8 p.m.

 

AGCO will host an open house on Friday, June 28, at the Intivity Center. MRN's Winged Nation will be on hand showcasing driver interviews and fans can tour the AGCO factory.

 

Jackson Motorplex is offering a Meet-and-Greet of several track Hall of Fame members on Saturday, June 29, in the afternoon behind the main grandstand.

 

There are additional activities and games that are in the works and will be announced in the near future.

 

AGCO Jackson Nationals tickets are available at http://www.JacksonMotorplex.com or by calling 507-822-7314.

 

This season's first two scheduled events at Jackson Motorplex have been cancelled because of the weather. The track is off this weekend before hosting Ag Builders Night presented by GDF Enterprises featuring the DeKalb/Asgrow presents the Midwest Power Series and Midwest Sprint Touring Series 360 sprint cars, Heartland Steel RaceSaver sprint cars presented by Wyffels Hybrids and NSL non-wing sprint cars presented by HitchDoc on May 31.

TONY HULMAN CLASSIC PREVIEW - MAY 22

By: Richie Murray – USAC Media

 

Terre Haute, Indiana (May 19, 2019)………No single race has a longer tenure on the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car schedule than the “Tony Hulman Classic” at western Indiana’s Terre Haute Action Track.

 

The grand event arrives at its 49th annual edition on Wednesday, May 22, at the legendary half-mile dirt oval at the Wabash Valley Fairgrounds with five former winners gunning to grab the coveted rifle awarded to the race winner.

 

Tyler Courtney is the defending winner of the “Hulman Classic,” leading the final nine laps after sliding by Chase Stockon in turn one on a late-race restart that came just moments after he almost saw his bid for a first victory at Terre Haute vanish before his eyes.

 

While running second late in the going, Courtney took evasive action to avoid a flipping lapped car.  Courtney, of Indianapolis, Ind., didn’t get away completely unscathed.  Courtney bounced his right rear off the flipping car but motored on with just a bent wheel cover.

 

In the post-race festivities, the traditional rifle was the first time Courtney had ever held a gun in his life.  As it turned out, Courtney was on the hunt to bag more victories at Terre Haute, which he did again during last summer’s “Indiana Sprint Week,” before rounding out the Terre Haute season with a seventh place run last September.

 

Steve Butler (1987-88), Levi Jones (2008-09) and Robert Ballou (2015-16) are the only previous drivers to have gone back-to-back to victory lane at the “Hulman Classic.”  Courtney just recently won the round at Eldora for his first win of the season in five attempts and appears prime to make a bid for consecutive wins.

 

But, several others are also in that same boat.  Ballou, of Rocklin, Calif., set fast time during qualifying of last Fall’s Terre Haute visit and is looking for his first win of the year as is 2017 “Hulman Classic” winner Kevin Thomas, Jr. of Cullman, Ala. who has three runner-up finishes in five starts this season.  Dave Darland of Lincoln, Ind. earned his first career USAC win during the 1993 “Hulman Classic” before waiting 21 years to do it again by winning in 2014.

 

Canton, Ill. driver Chris Windom has a “Hulman Classic” win in his back pocket, taking the 2011 race.  He was victorious in the season opener in Ocala, Fla. to get the year started off on the right foot with his new Goacher Racing team.  In fact, Windom has a total of five USAC wins at the Action Track, four total in National Sprint Cars and one in Silver Crown.

 

Bacon’s win at Terre Haute late last year isn’t the only one on his resume.  The Broken Arrow, Oklahoma native’s first one came in 2014, one of four occasions the Dynamics, Inc. No. 69 has gone to victory lane at Terre Haute, along with Robbie Stanley in 1993, Tracy Hines in 2003 and Jerry Coons, Jr. in 2010, the latter of which is team's lone "Hulman Classic" score.

 

Fort Branch, Indiana’s Chase Stockon has tallied a pair of USAC Sprint wins at Terre Haute, in 2012 and 2016.  He’s itching to get his first series victory of the year and is fourth in the standings, 51 points behind point leader C.J. Leary, Kevin Thomas, Jr. and Tyler Courtney.

 

Leary, of Greenfield, Indiana, hasn’t yet won a USAC Sprint race at Terre Haute, but did reach the promised land in a Silver Crown car there, taking the 2016 “Sumar Classic” for his first win in that division.  Justin Grant, who Leary passed late in the going that particular day, is also seeking USAC Sprint win number one at Terre Haute after winning the “Sumar” in 2018.

 

Broken Arrow, Oklahoma’s Jason McDougal finished in the top-two in each of his first two Terre Haute appearances last season, a seventh in July and a 10th in September.  Carson Short, of Marion, Ill., has set fast time twice already this year and finished fifth last weekend in his most recent outing at Eldora.

 

Chad Boespflug, of Hanford, Calif., came oh-so-close to his Terre Haute breakthrough in late-2016, coming up three laps short of victory and finishing second behind Windom.  Willow Branch, Indiana’s Isaac Chapple, meanwhile, is coming off his best run of the season, an 18th to 10th run last weekend at Eldora that netted him hard charger honors.

 

“Tony Hulman Classic” activities get underway with pits opening at 3pm eastern, drivers meeting at 6pm and cars on track at 6:30pm, with qualifications and racing to immediately follow.  Tickets are $25 for adult general admission and $15 adult infield tickets.  Children 11 and under are FREE!  Pit passes are $30 for members and $35 for non-members.

 

A great deal is available for those who don't want to miss a single lap of "The Week of Indy.”  A Superticket is being sold for a savings of 25% off of the regular three-day prices for the Wednesday, May 22 “Tony Hulman Classic” for USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Cars at the Terre Haute Action Track, the Thursday, May 23 “Hoosier Hundred” for USAC Silver Crown at the Indiana State Fairgrounds and on Friday, May 24 for the Dave Steele “Carb Night Classic” Silver Crown race at Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis.

 

 

For just $60, a savings of $20, a fan will receive general admission at Terre Haute and Lucas Oil Raceway as well as a reserved seat for the Hoosier Hundred.  To purchase a Superticket, visit https://usacracing.ticketspice.com/2019-week-of-indy-ticket-sales.

The strongest division, when it comes to large numbers, is the Neal Tire & Auto Pro Mods.  Nearly 50 drivers have been to the track this year with Decatur, IL’s Nick Justice leading the points, having grabbed two top fives in three starts.  Mt. Olive, IL’s Tim Hancock won the first two races of the season but had a DNF in the third race due to mechanical issues.  Hancock is second in points, while Chad Evans, Billy Nail, and Troy Medley complete the top five.

 

The DIRTcar Sportsman have raced twice so far this season and Springfield, IL driving veteran, Dennis Vandermeersch is batting 1.000, winning both.  Last year’s champion, Tim Bedinger, has a pair of top fives and sits second in points, while Scott Landers, Terry Myers, and Mitch Ringler round out the top five. 

 

A longtime driving veteran is off to a good start in the Archer’s Alley Street Stock class, as Monticello, IL’s Darrell Dick leads the way.  Dick has claimed a feature win as have the second and third place point contenders.  Dick is followed by the brothers’ Reed.  Gene Reed is second in points, while Terry Reed is third.  Bub Russell is currently fourth with Andy Zahnd rounding out the top five.

Super Late Models Race Into Town Friday At Lincoln Speedway

 

(Lincoln, IL) The always popular Super Late Models are set for their first of two appearances at Lincoln Speedway, in Lincoln, IL, this coming Friday, May 17.  It also marks the 2019 opener for the Midwest Big Ten Super Late Model tour, after the original opener was rained out at Belle-Clair Speedway.  Four other racing divisions will join the Super Late Models on Friday night.

 

The Midwest Big Ten Super Late Models have a ten event schedule with events at Lincoln Speedway and Highland Speedway this weekend.  In addition, events are scheduled to be held at Macon Speedway, Jacksonville Speedway, Spoon River Speedway, and Belle-Clair Speedway throughout the course of the summer months.  Friday’s Lincoln event will be a tune-up for the highly attended June 30 Summer Nationals event at the track.

 

Last season, Fairview Heights, IL’s Daryn Klein, claimed the victory in the Super Late Model shootout at the track over Michael Kloos, Rickey Frankel, Rusty Griffaw, and hometown favorite, Myles Moos.  19 drivers took the green.  Rain claimed the 2017 event, while Rich Bell bested a field of 22 cars in 2016.  2018 point champion, Jose Parga, of New Berlin, IL, is expected to be on track to start his title defense.

 

While the DIRTcar Pro Late Model division is not scheduled to run this Friday night, a number of drivers in the class may take advantage of the chance to compete with the Supers and gain valuable track time.  A $100 bonus has also been put up for the top finishing Pro Late Model competitor.  The event pays $1500 to win and $150 to start.

 

The DIRTcar Modifieds will be running for the fourth time this season as last year’s champion, Brian Lynn, leads the field.  Lynn, of Mason City, IL, has three top fives and a feature win and has built a 16 point lead.  Tommy Sheppard, Jr. is second in the standings, while Ray Bollinger is third, Austin Lynn fourth, and Jared Thomas fifth.  In addition to Lynn’s win, Bollinger and Rick Conoyer have found victory lane. NASCAR's Kenny Wallace has also announced he'd be back this Friday night to compete with Lincoln Speedway's strong field of Mods.

 

The DIRTcar Street Stocks are back for another event at the track.  While the Street Stocks don’t compete for official championship points at the track, Terry Reed, of Decatur, IL has had a good start at the speedway with the most consistent finishes so far this year.  Darrell Dick, Andy Zahnd, Rudy Zaragoza, and Braden Bilger have also faired well in the two races at the track.  Jeremy Nichols won the Midwest Stock Car Tour event, while Nick Macklin claimed the Big Ten win.

 

Mason City, IL’s Andy Baugh leads the field of Nutech Seed DII Midgets coming into the fourth night of action.  Baugh has won two of the three features but came up short in the most recent event as Karter Sarff took the win.  Brandon Smith, Patrick Ryan, Mark McMahill, and Jeff Sparks round out the top five in standings.  The Nutech Seed Front Row Challenge will be $300 for a driver that accepts the challenge and can win from the back on Friday night.

 

The final division on the Friday night docket will be the DIRTcar Hornets.  Pekin, IL’s Danny Oates is off to a great start, holding the point lead by two after grabbing three top five finishes.  Eric Vanapeldoorn, who has won two of the three features is second in points, while Cook Crawford, Carter Dart, and Brady Reed are top five competitors.

 

Grandstand admission for Friday’s event is just $15 for adults and free for kids 11 and under.  Parking is also free.  Pits open at 4:00, grandstands at 5:00, hotlaps will start at 6:00, and racing will begin at 7:00 PM.

Jackson Motorplex Extends Thoughts and Prayers to Zitterich Family

 

Inside Line Promotions - JACKSON, Minn. (May 12, 2019) - Everyone within the Jackson Motorplex community is deeply saddened at the recent and unexpected passing of Chuck Zitterich.

 

Zitterich was the race director at the track for the last three seasons and he also ran the National Sprint League for two seasons among many other duties throughout his respected time as a race official and director.

"Chuck was not only our race director, he was our leader in the pits," Jackson Motorplex General Manager Doug Johnson said. "He commanded everyone's respect and in return everyone respected Chuck for the job that he did. He was the rock of our pit area.

 

"Chuck's passing is a huge loss not only for Jackson Motorplex, but for the entire sprint car community. We want to express our deepest sympathy to Sonja, the kids and the entire Zitterich Family. Sprint car racing in the Upper Midwest would not be where it is today without the efforts of Chuck Zitterich and we cannot thank him enough for those efforts. Rest in Peace, Chuck."

AMSOIL USAC EASTERN STORM  QUICKLY APPROACHES,  THUNDER SERIES OPENS AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY TUESDAY NIGHT, JUNE 11

 

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (MAY 11, 2019) – The stars of the Amsoil USAC Non-Wing Sprint National Tour only come east one time per year and it all kicks off on Tuesday night, June 11 at the Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville, PA.   The 13th Annual USAC Eastern Storm will invade “the hill” as the first event of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series with the hefty $10,000 to win Jesse Hockett Classic.   This eye catching first place prize is part of the 30th Anniversary celebration for the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series.   Joining the USAC Non-Wing sprints are the popular NASCAR 358 Modifieds.   Gates open at 5 PM with qualifying getting underway at 7:30 PM.

 

Advance tickets may be ordered for the Tuesday, June 11 USAC Sprints & Modified show by calling 443 513 4456.   Please speak slowly and clearly when leaving a message and be sure to leave your name and number of tickets you will need.  Feel free to leave your phone number as well.   Tickets may be paid for and picked up at the WILL CALL Window on race night after 3:30 PM.   These tickets will entitle you to enter the grandstands at 4:30.    Adult admission tickets are $30, children 6 to 11 $10 and children five and under will be admitted for free.

 

If you have never seen the AMSOIL USAC Non-Wing sprints at Grandview, it’s a must see event.   The non-wing USAC National Tour are just perfect for the one-third mile high banked oval nestled on top of the hill in Bechtelsville, PA.    Even time trials are a thrill as the non-wing sprints show wheelies and use so much of the race track that they are bouncing off the outside boiler-plate wall. 

 

This event is dedicated a “classic event” to honor all-time sprint car great Jesse Hockett.   Many us remember that special night on the hill, when Jesse won both twin 20 lap USAC features, thrilling the Grandview fans in 2009.     In 2010, just prior to the Eastern Storm, Hockett succumbed to injuries suffered in a race shop accident.  Levi Jones won the first Jesse Hockett Classic in 2010.

 

The boys of Summer celebrate our great nation on Tuesday, July 2 with 410 Sprint Cars competing for $10,000 to win the twenty-fifth Grandview Speedway Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speed Week event.  NASCAR Cup Series star Kyle Larson has put the PA Posse in their place for two consecutive seasons, but a strong field of local competitors plans to keep that cash on home turf.   Look for local favorite Ryan Smith to hunt down and capture that first career Thunder victory wheeling the Mike Heffner sprint car in the new season.

 

The debut of the NOS Energy Drink USAC National Midgets takes place on Tuesday, July 30.  For years fans have begged, bargained, and pleaded for the Midgets on the Bechtelsville high banks and there’s no better time than the 30th Anniversary season of Thunder on the Hill.  Many of the same USAC Sprint Car stars will strap into midgets for this event like Brady Bacon and Kevin Thomas, Jr.  

 

The 5th Annual Levan Machine Truck Equipment Thunder Cup event brings the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions to the one-third mile Grandview Speedway on Thursday, August 22.  A highlight of the Thunder season, the All Star event will pay homage to the late Greg Hodnett, with a special memorial trophy.

 

The 358 Modifieds will co-headline all of the previously mentioned events, competing in 30 lap events for $3,000 to win and lucrative NASCAR points.  Grandview’s premier weekly division always thrills the crowd with side-by-side action.

 

The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series concludes on Saturday, October 19  with the House of Thunder Halloween Party featuring the 22nd running of the Modified Traffic Jam – where Big-Blocks battle Small-Blocks in the Mods at the Madhouse.  Alongside the Modifieds, the Sportsman, and MASS Sprint Cars will also be in action.

 

The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series is sponsored by NAPA Auto Parts, Levan Machine and Truck Equipment, and Galco Business Communications.

MOUNTAIN CREEK SPEEDWAY ANNOUNCES NEW EVENT PARTNERS, STAFF FOR CLASH AT THE CREEK


 

CATAWBA, NC (May 10, 2019) - Mountain Creek Speedway today announced two key partners of their annual outlaw kart showcase event. The newly-rebranded Nitro Karting Clash at the Creek presented by QRC rolls off May 19 with title sponsorship from two giants in outlaw karting, Nitro Karting and QRC Karts.


 

Nitro Karting is based in Mooresville, North Carolina, and manufactures a wide variety of components found in the pits of any major karting event including gears, pit tools, smaller karting components and trailer accessories. Red Bluff, California's, QRC Karts has over three decades of outlaw kart manufacturing experience, essentially building the discipline in its early years with their innovations and involvement in the sport.


 

"Our goal since last year's inaugural Clash was to continue to build the event and improve it every single year," said Adam Stewart of Mountain Creek Speedway. "With everything that has finally come together in the last few weeks, racers and fans should be optimistic for not only this year's event, but also future editions of the Clash. We've got a lot of great people beginning to take interest and get involved in what's going on here in Catawba County."


 

In addition to new event partners, MCS also announced the race director for this year's event. Known for his long-time involvement in outlaw karting around Red Bluff and other areas on the west coast, Christopher Rowling (better known to his contemporaries as "Topher") has been retained to run the May 18-19 event. Rowling has been active in outlaw karting events on the west coast for years and has also worked in the industry's manufacturing and distribution side, giving him an in-depth understanding of the sport from all angles.


 

Adding to the event's momentum in only its second year, MCS has announced two of its contingency partners for the event, Sparco USA and Van-K Wheels. Sparco is a leading manufacturer of safety equipment and Van-K manufactures a substantial portion of the aluminum wheels used on various race vehicles including karts and outlaw karts like those which will be racing during the 2nd Annual Nitro Karting Clash at the Creek presented by QRC. 


 

"We're really looking forward to this year's event," Stewart continued. "Our phone is ringing with competitors, sponsors, fans, and I'd like to believe this is quickly becoming a showcase race for outlaw karts. We've got a slimmed down schedule with more racing and racers who are excited for the event again, that's always a good thing. We certainly are appreciative of everyone's support."


 

The Clash at the Creek hits the track on the morning of May 18 with preliminary activities scheduled for the day. On Sunday, May 19, the featured open division hits the speedway for their entire racing program including qualifying, heats and feature contests. Intermediate karts will also be racing in addition to features to the beginners and the box stock competitors. Sunday's program will be televised LIVE on Pit Row TV ( www.pitrow.tv).


 

For more information on the Clash at the Creek and Mountain Creek Speedway, including complete payout and rules, visit their website at MountainCreekSpeedway.com. The track is also engaged on Facebook (@MountainCreekSpeedway) and Twitter (@MtnCrkSpeedway).

 

 

 

MIDGETS AND MICROS SET FOR MACON SPEEDWAY SATURDAY

 

(Macon, IL) – The 2019 season for the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League and the POWRi Engler Machine & Tool Outlaw Micro League rolls on this weekend with the Midwest Season Opening Weekend at Belle-Clair Speedway and Macon Speedway.  Saturday’s event at Macon Speedway will be the first of four visits from the tours this season.

 

Heading to Macon on Saturday, Sutter, California’s Logan Seavey serves as the defending race winner. On a hot streak at that, the 2017 POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League champion is the current point leader by way of a phenomenal three-win stretch in the opening five races of 2019.

 

While it’s the first visit of the season for the POWRi Engler Machine & Tool Outlaw Micro League, many of the drivers already have had some on-track action this season at the speedway.  Macon has had two of its own local shows this year for the Micros presented by Bailey Chassis.  Riverton, IL driver, Aaron Andruskevitch is the current track point leader, scoring both wins.  Aiden Purdue, Tyler Day, Molly Day, and Tyler Rust complete the top five in the local points.

 

Saturday night’s show will also include the second Midwest Big Ten Series Pro Late Model event of the year.  The first was at Lincoln Speedway on April 26, where Mendon, IL’s Denny Woodworth claimed the win.  23 different Pro Late drivers attended that event.  The night will also include local points for the Decatur Building Trades Pro Late Models, where Dakota Ewing is the current point leader, after setting a new track record and winning a feature last weekend.  Cody Maguire, Donny Koehler, Chris Dick, and Blake Damery complete the top five.

 

The Archer’s Alley DIRTcar Street Stocks are also on the card.  Monticello, IL’s Darrell Dick leads the points by just 10 over Gene Reed.  The division has seen three different feature winners in as many races with Dick, Reed, and Terry Reed finding victory lane.  Larry Russell, Jr. and Andy Zahnd are in the top five.

 

The DIRTcar Hornets complete the five division show.  Brady Reed, of Decatur, IL, has won two out of the three features so far and leads the points.  Billy Mason, Carter Dart, Marty Sullivan, and Michael Abbott are in the top five in the current standings.

 

Macon pits open Saturday at 3:00 PM with grandstands at 5:00, the POWRi drivers meeting is scheduled for 5:30, local driver meeting at 5:45, with hot laps on track at 6:00, and racing underway at 7:00.  Grandstand admission will be $18 for adults and free for kids 11 and under.  Those who bring a ticket stub from last weekend’s race will receive $3 off of their ticket for this week.

Will Bristle Expecting Strong Performance in Carteret Shootout

PELETIER, NC – Will Bristle has had a lot of success at Bobby Watson’s Carteret County Speedway and he’s hoping to add one more Carteret trophy to his mantle on Saturday night in the $2,500-to-win Short Track Shootout.

Bristle, 18, from Raleigh, North Carolina has scored multiple victories at Carteret County Speedway – including a victory in a $2,500-to-win race in last year’s Labor Day Classic.  Saturday night, however, could be one of the biggest challenges he’s faced as an ultra-competitive field is set to converge upon Carteret County Speedway.

“A win this weekend would definitely be ranked pretty high up there with that strong competition coming in,” Bristle said.  “We have been very successful at Carteret in the past.  We plan on working on that and keeping the momentum going.”

While the $2,500 check that will go to the winner is incentive enough for many competitors, Saturday night’s event will also be a prime opportunity for racers to get dialed in for the INEX Legends Asphalt Nationals, the largest Legends event in North America, which will be held from October 17th through October 19th at Carteret County Speedway.

“The money’s a really big factor that we’re going for,” Bristle remarked.  “We’re definitely expecting a lot of tough competition coming own.  Preparing for the Nationals as well.  It’s what we’re all here doing.  We want to find some good speed for the Nationals.  We’re expecting upwards of 150 cars that week so we have to be on our game that week, on point.  We’re making speed here preparing for May 11th and the Nationals in October.”

Bristle scored three victories at Carteret County Speedway in 2019 driving for the dominant Dillon Spain Motorsports team which has also racked up wins with Spain, Zach Lightfoot, Eric Courtney, and Mason Diaz in the past and been in contention for wins all season with Emily Day.  Bristle, who is a former Legends champion at Southern National Motorsports Park, does not race regularly himself and often spends much of his time working with other DSM drivers.

“We have a wonderful group of guys with us,” Bristle stated.  “Great drivers we work with.  We’ve got Emily.  Tucker Jones is rolling.  We’ve got Jason Austin.  We’ve got some good speed.  It should be a really great show.  We’re expecting a lot of cars.  It should be a blast.”

The Legends race will see a slightly altered format.  If there are more than 30 cars attempting to make the field, the top 20 starting positions will be determined in qualifying, which will commence at 5:30pm, and the rest will have an opportunity to race in a B-Main style event with the top eight finishers from that race transferring to the feature race.

The 35-lap, $2,500-to-win Legends feature will be the headline act in the Short Track Shootout on Saturday night, May 11th.  The green flag will fly at 7pm and will also feature racing for Street Stocks, Mini-Stocks, U-CARs, Champ Karts, and the Coastal Carolina Mini Cup Series.

Tickets are $15 for adults while kids 10 and under get in free.  In honor of Mother’s Day, moms will get $5 off general admission.

Jackson Motorplex Postpones Season-Opening Casey's Great Lakes Shootout

 

Inside Line Promotions - JACKSON, Minn. (May 6, 2019) - The season opener at Jackson Motorplex has been postponed because of continued wet weather.

 

The 4/10-mile oval was slated to kick off the season this Friday with the Casey's Great Lakes Shootout presented by Harvey's Roofing and Tweeter Contracting. However, the marquee race featuring the Bumper to Bumper IRA Sprint Car Series along with Heartland Steel RaceSaver sprint cars presented by Wyffels Hybrids will have to wait a few months.

"We have been unable to get any heavy equipment on the track over the past several weeks as it never seems to dry out before we get blasted with more rain," Jackson Motorplex General Manager Doug Johnson said. "We have decided to shift everything to our season finale in September."

 

The Great Lakes Shootout will now become a part of the final event of the season on Sept. 20-21. There will be added money for the IRA Sprint Car Series portion and the Heartland Steel RaceSaver sprint cars presented by Wyffels Hybrids will be racing both days during the SeaFoam Open Wheel Nationals for big money along with the Wisconsin Wingless Sprints.

 

The next event for Jackson Motorplex is May 17 for Iowa Speedway Night featuring the Midwest Power Series and Midwest Sprint Touring Series 360 sprint cars, NSL non-wing sprint cars presented by HitchDoc and Heartland Steel RaceSaver sprint cars presented by Wyffels Hybrids.

 

One lucky fan will win two tickets to the NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Iowa Speedway in Newton, Iowa, in June.

Championship Chases Heating Up at DCRP

 

Lonnie Wheatley, DODGE CITY, Kan. (May 3, 2019) – With a pair of nights in the books at Dodge City Raceway Park, the championship chases are beginning to shape up going into Saturday night’s card atop the 3/8-mile clay oval in southwest Kansas.

 

Saturday’s card is headlined by the $1,000-to-win IMCA Stock Car Shootout presented by Winner’s Circle Feedyards and Factory Direct Fireworks along with the Precise Racing Products DCRP Sprint Cars, IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sport Modifieds and IMCA Hobby Stocks.

 

Angel Munoz and Dakota Sproul both look to keep their streaks of perfection in the win column alive Saturday night in the Stock Car and Sport Modifed ranks respectively with the balance of the points chases continuing to take form.

 

Saturday’s racing action goes green at 7:30 p.m. with adult admission only $12.  It kicks off a weekend double that also includes the inaugural event atop the newly-constructed Little DCRP clay oval on Sunday afternoon for Micro Sprints and Karts.

 

A look at the 2019 DCRP championship chases is as follows:

 

Precise Racing Products DCRP Sprint Cars:

 

Dodge City’s Brian Herbert habitually breaks out of the gates quickly and did so once again with a hard-earned win last Saturday night to move into a tie atop the point charts with opening night winner Luke Cranston.

 

Feature Winners: Luke Cranston 1, Brian Herbert 1.

 

Current Top Ten in Points:  1. (tie) Luke Cranston and Brian Herbert 288, 3. Jeremy Huish 271, 4. Steven Richardson 264, 5. Jordan Knight 247, 6. Tyler Knight 243, 7. Kade Hagans 243, 8. Kyler Johnson 230, 9. Kris Moore 201, 10. Ross Essenburg 193.

 

IMCA Modifieds:

 

Clay Sellard has put up back-to-back podium finishes to garner an early 10-point lead over two-time and defending track champion Nick Link as Clay Money and Brendon Gemmill have both made trips to victory lane.

 

Feature Winners: Brendon Gemmill 1, Clay Money 1.

 

Current Top Ten in Points:  1. Clay Sellard 286, 2. Nick Link 276, 3. Jesse Smith 258, 4. Kale Beavers 237, 5. Joel Lane 235, 6. (tie) Trent Gray and William Nusser 232, 8. Casey Jo Gemmill 231, 9. Jake Schroeder 226, 10. (tie) Rick Taylor and Kevin Gray 220.

Kids Bike Races & CEFCU Kids Club To Highlight Saturday Racing At Macon Speedway
7 Racing Divisions To Take The Track

(Macon, IL) This coming Saturday night, May 4, Macon Speedway will go back green on the 2019 season with a seven division program plus CEFCU Kid’s Club and Kid’s Bike Races.

Leading into this week, Warrensburg, IL’s Dakota Ewing and Carlinville, IL’s Cody Maguire are tied atop the point standings.  Ewing is coming off of a win two weeks ago, while Maguire has two top five finishes.  The youth movement continues in the third spot as Colby Sheppard, of Williamsville, IL holds that position after two top ten finishes.  Chris Dick and Donny Koehler complete the top five.

Tommy Sheppard, Jr. of New Berlin, IL was the champion one season ago in the BillingsleyRewards.com Modifieds.  Sheppard has had a good start this year, claiming a win and a second place finish in the two races so far.  However, Rodney Standerfer, of Summerfield, IL, has done just as well with a win and a second place finish and is tied with Sheppard up top.  Guy Taylor, Jared Thomas, and Tim Hancock complete the top five.

Mt. Olive, IL’s Tim Hancock has a perfect record early on, going 2-for-2 in the Neal Tire & Auto Pro Mod division.  Decatur, IL’s Nick Justice is second in the standings, while Chad Evans, Tim Riech, and Brady Lynch round out the top three.  The Pro Mod class has had 28 different drivers take the track already this season.

Back on the card this week are the DIRTcar Sportsman.  Two weeks ago, Dennis Vandermeersch, of Springfield, IL dominated the feature.  Terry Myers, of Buffalo, IL, made his way through the field to take the second spot, while Mitch Ringler, Joel Irvin, and Tim Bedinger round out the top five in points.

Terry Reed, of Cerro Gordo, IL, leads the Archer’s Alley Street Stock points by just two markers over Monticello, IL’s Darrell Dick.  Bub Russell, Gene Reed, and Bobby Beiler complete the top five after two weeks of racing.  The top five in points is dominated by Macon Speedway veterans.

Decatur, IL’s Brady Reed leads the standings in the DIRTcar Hornet class.  Carter Dart is second in the points, while Billy Mason, Marty Sullivan, and Steve Stine complete the top five.  Reed and Chuck Johnson have picked up early season wins.

Rounding out the racing program will be a visit from the DIRTcar KidModz.  The division is geared toward kids 8-16 years of age interested in Modified racing.  The series was designed to get kids started in the sport.  At most events, a handful of kids compete in the KidModz races.

At intermission, kids bike races will be held.  All girls and boys ages 15 and under are welcome to bring their bikes to compete.  Helmets are highly recommended as well.  In addition, CEFCU Kids Club will be held before the races in the pavilion.

Pit gates will open at 4:00, grandstands at 5:00, hotlaps at 6:00, and racing will take the green at 7:00.  Grandstand admission is $12 for adults and free for kids 11 and under.
