Championship Saturday Night at DCRP!

 

Lonnie Wheatley, DODGE CITY, Kan. (September 13, 2019) – It all comes down to Saturday night atop the 3/8-mile Dodge City Raceway Park clay oval in southwest Kansas.

 

Saturday’s Seventh Annual Jerry Soderberg Memorial Championship will determine the five DCRP track champions for 2019 along with the balance of the top ten in each division.

Midgets & Street Stocks To Headline Saturday Event At Macon Speedway

(Macon, IL) – Macon Speedway is down to its last three nights of the 2019 season and this Saturday, September 14 will be a big one. One of the fan favorite classes, the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League will highlight the night as well as the Midwest Big Ten Street Stocks in the $2,000 to win John Osman Memorial. Micros and Pro Mods are also on the card, presented by Griz 98.1 FM and Archers Alley. 

For the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League, “Mighty Macon” Speedway takes center stage for only the second time this year. In Macon’s only appearance this year, Jake Neuman of New Berlin, Ill. won his first at the iconic track on July 27. Hampered by Mother Nature, three other POWRi dates at Macon on May 11, June 15 and August 17 have been washed away by rain. 

Leading into the weekend, only nine races remain on the calendar for the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midgets. Jesse Colwell of Red Bluff, CA is currently on top of the point standings with. 5,740 points aboard his Keith Kunz-Curb Agajanian Motorsports, JBL Audio, Bullet/Toyota No. 71. Colwell is chased by three-time league champion Zach Daum (-350 PTS) of Pocahontas, IL, teenage favorite Holley Hollan (-930 PTS) of Broken Arrow, OK, rising rookie Daison Pursley (1,140 PTS) of Locust Grove, OK, and seasoned vet Jake Neuman (1,150 PTS) of New Berlin, IL. 

The POWRi Engler Machine & Tool Outlaw Micros saw their points chase take a dramatic turn last weekend at Jacksonville with a DNF from four-time champ, Joe B. Miller. Now, it’s Gunner Ramey of Sedalia, Mo. holding the top spot ahead of Miller (-60 PTS), Riley Goodno (-420 PTS), Harley Hollan (-700 PTS) and Trevin Littleton (-730 PTS). The Micros will also receive local points for the Macon Speedway Micro class presented by Bailey Chassis. 

Saturday will also mark the 5th annual John Osman Memorial for the Midwest Big Ten Series Archers Alley Street Stocks. The event will pay $2,000 to win and $100 to start and will draw some of the best Street Stock competitors in the country. Monticello, IL’s Darrell Dick leads the Big 10 Street Stock points by just six over Cerro Gordo, IL’s Terry Reed. Reed leads the Macon Speedway weekly points. 

Rounding out Saturday’s action will be the Neal Tire & Auto Pro Mods. Tim Hancock claimed last week’s feature, not only in the Pro Mod class but also the A-Mod class. Hancock has a 92 point lead over Nick Justice in the Pro Mod class. Rob Timmons had a strong second place run on Saturday and is third in points, while Tim Riech and Roy Magee complete the top five. For Hancock, Saturday’s win was his 12th of the season at Macon in the class. 

The pits will open at 3:00pm, grandstands at 5:00pm, with hot laps at 6:00pm and racing to follow at 7:00pm. Grandstand admission is $18 for adults and free for kids 11 and under.

JIM HURTUBISE CLASSIC COMING TO TERRE HAUTE FRIDAY NIGHT

By: Richie Murray – USAC Media 

Terre Haute, Indiana (September 9, 2019)………Friday’s Jim Hurtubise Classic begins a USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car doubleheader weekend in the Hoosier state this Friday, September 13, at one of USAC’s longest-tenured venues, the Terre Haute Action Track, which hosted its first USAC Sprint Car event more than six decades ago, in 1957. 

Friday’s race honors the most successful USAC Sprint Car driver in those early years at the Wabash Valley Fairgrounds half-mile, Jim Hurtubise, who won five-straight between 1960 and 1962.  “Herk,” a 1993 inductee into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame, first had an event in his name at the Terre Haute Action Track in 1990, less than a year following his passing, a race won by Jack Hewitt. 

This year, the event enters its 20th running with two-time USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car champion Brady Bacon scoring the most recent victory at the Hurtubise Classic last September.  Bacon has had a notable run of success in the event as one of three drivers to win the Hurtubise Classic on multiple occasions, first winning in the Fall of 2014 aboard the Dynamics, Inc. No. 69.  The Terre Haute USAC one-lap track record holder from Broken Arrow, Okla. aims to become the first driver to pilot the Dynamics, Inc. to victory lane at Terre Haute twice following previous singular victories by Robbie Stanley (1993), Tracy Hines (2003) and Jerry Coons, Jr. (2010). 

Chris Windom (Canton, Ill.) is one of the three multiple-time Hurtubise Classic winners alongside Hewitt and Bacon, capturing three in 2011-2016-2017.  With one more victory on Friday, he would surpass Hewitt as the winningest Hurtubise Classic driver of all-time.  Windom has won four times overall in USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car competition at Terre Haute and once in Silver Crown, plus his latest triumph there at the western Indiana dirt oval, scoring an MSCS win in August. 

The very first win of Chase Stockon’s USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car career came right at Terre Haute during the 2012 Jim Hurtubise Classic.  The current Fort Branch, Ind. resident who grew up in nearby Sullivan, Ind., has three USAC Sprint wins overall at Terre Haute, including the Tony Hulman Classic in May of this year.  This Friday, he hopes to become USAC’s ultimate ironman.  One more start would be his 285th consecutive with the USAC National Sprint Car division, surpassing Levi Jones for the longest such streak in series history. 

Tyler Courtney was the victor in the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car division’s most recent visit to Terre Haute in July during Indiana Sprint Week where he led the final nine laps for the victory.  In fact, the Indianapolis, Ind. native swept the event, earning quick time in qualifying, winning his heat and pulling off the trifecta in the A-Main.  Courtney has won three of the last five at Terre Haute and is the most recent winner in the series, in August at Kokomo (Ind.) Speedway. 

The last driver to win at Terre Haute before Courtney began his run of three out of five at the beginning of the 2018 season is Kevin Thomas, Jr.  Thomas (Cullman, Ala.) has won twice at the Action Track in USAC National Sprint competition.  He emerged victorious after a scintillating battle with Dave Darland during the final laps of the ISW round in 2013, then reigned supreme near the end of 2017.  Like Courtney, he’s gunning for his first Hurtubise Classic win, where he finished 5th a year ago. 

So is C.J. Leary, who’s stood in victory lane once before with USAC at Terre Haute after scoring his first career National series win in a Silver Crown car at the Sumar Classic in 2016.  Leary was 9th and 6th in his two Terre Haute starts this year en route to the 121-point lead in the series standings he holds entering Friday’s race.  The Greenfield, Ind. driver was quick time in qualifying at Terre Haute in May, one of his series-leading eight this year.  He led the first five laps and finished 4th in the 2018 Hurtubise Classic. 

Justin Grant (Ione, Calif.) led 21 laps and finished 2nd in the series appearance at Terre Haute in July.  He took 5th in May and is 4th in the series standings entering Friday’s event at Terre Haute where he has not yet won at in USAC competition.  He owns two USAC National Sprint points-paying wins this season as well as a special event at Kokomo in August. 

Jason McDougal (Broken Arrow, Okla.), a winner in both USAC’s National Sprint Car and Midget series in 2019, earned a 7th place finish in his Terre Haute USAC Sprint Car debut in 2018.  He was 10th in his first Hurtubise Classic appearance last Fall and took 7th again in his return to Terre Haute this past May. 

Isaac Chapple (Willow Branch, Ind.) took 13th in his most recent Hurtubise Classic ride last September.  The 2016 USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Rookie of the Year was the hard charger at Terre Haute back in May, finishing 10th.  He was 12th during the series return in July and resides 10th in the series standings.

The 163rd USAC Sprint Car event at the Terre Haute Action Track will also have the DIRTcar Modifieds on hand.  Pits open at 3pm Eastern, grandstands at 4pm and cars on track at 6:30pm.  Adult grandstand tickets are $25 while adult infield tickets are $15.  Kids 11 and under are free.  Pit passes are $35 apiece. 

The Jim Hurtubise Classic will have live, flag-to-flag coverage on FloRacing.  You can listen to live audio of the broadcast for free on the USAC app or follow along with live updates on https://www.facebook.com/usacracing/ and https://twitter.com/USACNation/ with live timing and scoring available on both the USAC and Race-Monitor apps. 

Friday's Terre Haute race is the first of a set of two USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car events this weekend, followed the next night, Saturday night, September 14, at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Ind. for the Haubstadt Hustler. 

USAC AMSOIL SPRINT CAR NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP POINTS: 1-C.J. Leary-1,702, 2-Tyler Courtney-1,581, 3-Brady Bacon-1,564, 4-Justin Grant-1,525, 5-Kevin Thomas, Jr.-1,524, 6-Chris Windom-1,495, 7-Chase Stockon-1,472, 8-Jason McDougal-1,294, 9-Carson Short-1,273, 10-Isaac Chapple-991.

CHAMP CARS BACK ON THE PAVEMENT IN VOGLER CLASSIC SATURDAY

By: Richie Murray – USAC Media

Brownsburg, Indiana (September 2, 2019)………The 26th edition of the Rich Vogler Classic arrives at Lucas Oil Raceway in Brownsburg, Ind. this Saturday, September 7, for the sixth and final appearance of the USAC Silver Crown Champ Car Series on pavement in 2019.

The pavement has been mostly dominated by one driver this season, point leader Kody Swanson (Kingsburg, Calif.), who’s won the pole and the race at four of the five so far: Memphis, Toledo, Madison and Salem. However, the one missing from Swanson’s resume this year is the .686-mile Lucas Oil Raceway where he once again won the pole and led the first 53 laps until dropping to the sideline with an engine issue while leading.

Hamilton took control from that point forward, leading all but one lap to score his first career series victory. It’s been a career year in the series for the Danville, Ind. native with four top-five finishes in five starts.

Kody’s younger brother Tanner Swanson (Kingsburg, Calif.) was a hard-charger after electing to start from the tail, then pitting, and restarting from the tail, and still managed to drive to second. He’s a two-time Rich Vogler Classic winner himself in 2013 and 2015 and a five-time Silver Crown winner at LOR. With one more win at LOR, he would become the winningest Silver Crown driver at the track, breaking a tie with Mike Bliss.

Between Tanner and four-time winners Kody Swanson and Bobby Santos (Franklin, Mass.), they have won 12 of the 14 Silver Crown races at LOR since 2011. Santos won the first Rich Vogler Classic at LOR with Silver Crown cars after the event moved from Winchester (Ind.) Speedway in 2012. He won the most recent as well back in 2017 after last year’s event was washed away by Mother Nature.

Since 2011, the only ones to break up the Tanner, Kody, and Santos stranglehold at LOR has been Hamilton and David Byrne (Shullsburg, Wisc.), who used a last-lap last corner pass of Tanner to win the 2014 Vogler Classic in dramatic fashion, his first and only series victory thus far.

Finishing behind Hamilton at the line in May’s race was Tanner Swanson, Bobby Santos, Justin Grant and Eric Gordon. Gordon (Fortville, Ind.) is a three-time USAC National Sprint Car feature winner at LOR, taking victories in three-straight seasons in 1990-91-92. Gordon’s Vogler Classic debut came in the inaugural 1991 edition, finishing 16th in both the sprint and midget features that afternoon at Winchester.

Brian Gerster (Fishers, Ind.) finished 7th in May’s race. His first two career USAC National Midget wins came at LOR in 1994-95. Gerster was fast qualifier in a sprint car at the Vogler Classic in 1999. He finished a best of 4th twice in the Vogler Classic, in a midget in 1996 and in a sprint car in 1997.

Pits open for the Rich Vogler Classic at noon eastern on Saturday, Sept. 7. Grandstands open at 3pm, Silver Crown practice at 4:15pm, Silver Crown qualifying at 6:30pm and the green flag for the USAC Silver Crown main event slated for 7:45pm. The Speed51 Super Select will follow.

Advance general admission tickets are $25 for adults and $10 for children (11 & under). Race day general admission tickets are $30 for adults and $10 for children (11 & under). Pit passes are $30 for USAC members and $35 for non-members.

Speed51 Super Select joins the USAC Silver Crown Champ Cars on the event card. That event will feature some of the best drivers in Late Model racing competing in an invitational.

The Rich Vogler Classic will have live, flag-to-flag coverage on FloRacing. You can listen to live audio of the broadcast for free on the USAC app or follow along with live updates on https://www.facebook.com/usacracing/ and https://twitter.com/USACNation/ with live timing and scoring available on both the USAC and Race-Monitor apps.

TIM FELVER NAMED GRAND MARSHAL FOR GLASS CITY 200 Toledo, Ohio-September 2, 2019

1999 Glass City race winner Tim Felver will serve as the Grand Marshal for the 31st running of the Central Transport Glass City 200 presented by Hampton Inn and Courtyard by Marriott at Toledo Speedway Saturday, September 21.

 
Felver captured the 200 lap contest for the outlaw-bodied Late Models in 1999, the event that brought back the prestigious race to Toledo for the first time since 1977. Current Toledo owner and promoter Ron Drager and his business partner, Roy Mott, purchased the track in January of that year and promptly returned the race to the schedule for that season.

 
Tim piloted the #5 machine owned by legendary car owners Dean Hudson and Larry Zent to the victory. In a bid to repeat that win in 2000, Felver was in the lead with 9 laps to go, but tangled with his teammate, Canadian star Jr. Hanley, ending his chances to become a repeat winner of the classic.

 
Felver, a member of the Michigan Motorsports Hall of Fame, will be honored in pre-race ceremonies for the 200 Saturday, September 21. All past Glass City 200 winners have also been invited to the race and will be introduced to the crowd.

 
The 200 format has 2 divisions of Late Models in competition, which was put into play with the 2017 version of the Glass City. Defending race winners are Tyler Roahrig (ARCA Gold Cup) and Tyler Ankrum (ARCA/CRA).

 
Both groups of Late Models will run 100 lap features, with each race paying $5000 to win and $800 to start. The total purse exceeds $60,000. The outlaw-bodied ARCA Gold Cup Late Model Series and the ARCA/CRA Super Series powered by Jeg's stock-bodied Late Models will each battle in the 100 lap main events on the fast ½ mile paved oval.

 
The outlaw 100 lap event will also be the final point race for the Gold Cup Series. Brian Bergakker leads the pack after 5 races and has a comfortable lead over Dennis Strickland and Frank Jiovani.
Friday, September 20 rig parking only will take place from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. There will be no on-track action.

 
Race day begins with pit registration at 9:30 a.m. and the pit gates opening at 10 a.m. Practice will go from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Qualifying will begin at 4:30 p.m., with the outlaw-bodied Late Models shooting for the $500 Passtime Fast Qualifier bonus. The newly-created CRA Jr. Late Models (for drivers ages 10-15) will be a part of the Glass City event for the first time and will run a 30 lap feature on the ¼ mile oval.

 
An on-track autograph session will take place at 5:30, followed by driver introductions and pre-race ceremonies at 6:30 p.m. The race card will immediately follow.

 
A rain date of Sunday, September 22 at 1 p.m. has been established.
Both general admission and reserved tickets are now on sale by calling 419-727-1100.

 
Additional sponsors for the Central Transport Glass City 200 include R & M Recycling, Bazell Race Fuels, Sunoco Race Fuels, First Care Ambulance, DTS Drive Train Specialists and Penske Racing Shocks.
