Glenski Survives For 1st Late Model Win Of The Season At Florence  

 

  • For Immediate Release  

 

TIMMONSVILLE, SC (May 8) – Mooresville, NC’s Ryan Glenski survived an off-track excursion with 13 laps to go to score his first NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series Late Model Stock win of the year Saturday night at Florence Motor Speedway.  

Zack Miracle qualified on the pole with a lap of 82.536 miles per hour, but would lose the lead to Jeremy McDowell at the drop of the green flag.  McDowell led until his car slowed on a lap 23 restart following a caution for Janson Marchbanks’ Chevy stalling in turn three.  With McDowell’s problems, Glenski assumed the lead before the field was slowed on lap 30 when Anthony Adams’ machine went over the turn one embankment.  

Travis Truett had a strong top five run going until he spun entering turn one with 27 laps to go.  Likewise, Casey Kelley was running in the top five when he was sent spinning by Jamie Weatherford with 13 laps to go.   

The tension level would raise up a notch on the restart as Glenski and Matt Cox battled for the lead into turn one.  Glenski’s car went wide exiting turn two, briefly going off the pavement on the backstretch and then nearly spinning through turns three and four.  Luckily for Glenski, the caution waved for a spin off the track in turn three by Kade Brown, handing the lead back to Glenski for the final restart.  Glenski led the rest of the way for his first Late Model Stock win of the season over Cox, Adams, Justin Hicks and Marchbanks.  Rounding out the top 10 were RA Brown, Truett, K. Brown, Austin Somero, and Jessica Cann.  

After starting 7th, veteran racer Gus Dean made his way through the field, taking the lead late in the going from Leland Honeyman and leading the rest of the way for his first career Carolina Pro Late Model Series win.  Tovia Grynewicz started on the pole and led the first 35 laps before surrendering the top spot to Honeyman.  The 100-lap race went caution-free as Dean sped to the checkered over Nick Loden, Honeyman, William Sawalich, and Grynewicz.  

Denver, NC’s Clint King got the best of Adam McCumbee on a restart with 13 laps to go and held on to take the checkered flag for his first SuperTruck win of the year.  Despite a bump from Jody Measamer on lap three, McCumbee managed to lead all but one lap prior to King taking advantage on lap 27.  Early on, Cody Kelley’s top five run ended after contact with Measamer sent Kelley into the outside wall on the front stretch.  Strom Altman made several runs into the top five but spun down the backstretch to set up the restart that propelled King to the win.  Following King and McCumbee at the finish line were Measamer, Lucas Williams, and Remington Prince.     

Averitt Lucas led flag-to-flag from the pole to take a dominating win in the Chargers division.  Rounding out the top five were Bobby Tumbleston, III, Brian Owens, Shae Lane, and Corey Weatherford.  

Justin Snow was the winner in the Carolina Pro 602 Modified feature, while Drake Williamson took his third Allison Legacy Series win of the year.  

             The next race at Florence Motor Speedway will be Local Business Appreciation Night on Saturday night, May 22nd, featuring the the NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series Late Model Stocks, Chargers, SuperTrucks, Mini Stocks, Vintage Cars Thunder & Lightening, Allison Legacy Series, and Southeast Limited Junior Elites.  Be sure to “Like” Florence Motor Speedway on Facebook, follow @FlorenceMSpdwy on Twitter to keep up on all that’s going on in 2021, visit fmspeedway.com. or watch all the action live each week on fmspeedway.tv.

Macon Speedway Continues to Excite

 

By BZ

 

(Macon, IL) The second week of the 2021 Macon Speedway racing season saw familiar winners grace the winner's circle on a night which saw seven divisions compete at the 76-year-old dirt oval. Over 100 racecars filled the pit area and a full grandstand continued to bring along plenty of excitement on the first Saturday of May.

 

Among the familiar winners to find victory lane was Jeremy Nichols in the Weddle Performance Engines Sportsman division. Nichols took the checkered flag in the season opener two weeks ago and looked dominate again in the 15-lap main event. Tailed by former division champions Dennis Vandermeersch and Scott Landers, Nichols pursued the top groove and ran it flawlessly to extend his lead over the pack. Vandermeersch moved on the top side, as well, but ran into the wall and up the fence in turn one on the final lap and was towed off the track. That allowed Landers to become the second place car and stayed close on the restart but Nichols was too much for Landers and the rest of the field.

 

Nichols looked ready for his second 2-for-2 of the season as he led in the Archer's Alley Street Stocks feature. Running at the top with Bobby Beiler, Nichols was again moving fast along the top of the track. As Nichols was moving fast, he came up on a car about to become a lap down and Nichols tagged into the back of it and caused the car to spin out. Nichols would be penalized for the spinout that led to the yellow flag and be put to the back of the field. With five laps remaining, Beiler took his role as the leader and would go on to the feature win.

 

Kyle Helmick led wire-to-wire in the Pro Modified 15-lap feature event and outdueled Kevin Crowder, Billy Knebel and Nick Justice for the win. Knebel looked poised for a top spot takeaway with a fast run on the top but lapped traffic running on the top slowed him down and allowed Helmick, a bottom groove racer, to hold on to the lead and the win.

 

Helmick got the pole position assignment in the BillingsleyRewards.com Modifieds 20-lap feature and led for the first three laps continuing to run on the bottom. However, he was not able to fend off Guy Taylor who was smooth running up top. Taylor's lead would grow and be comfortable although defending champion and Opening Night feature winner Tommy Sheppard, Jr. closed in.

 

Aiden Purdue took the top honors out of 25 drivers in the Micro Sprints Presented by Bailey Chassis. Purdue, native of Clinton, started from the pole position and made short work of the group. Decatur's Jacob Tipton started seventh and ran all the way up to second place for the finish. The Micro Sprints got a taste of the Macon Speedway track before the POWRi Midgets and Micro Sprints national touring series arrives next Saturday.

 

Jose Parga and Jake Little took off in the Decatur Building Trades Pro Late Model feature. Parga opened up the advantage and led the small group around for the 20-lap feature race win.

 

The seven division night of racing ended with the 4-cylinder Hornets and a wild one ensued with Michael McKay of Springfield getting the win with a fast car from the top lane. Shelby Beiler led the early laps from the pole position and fended off Billy Mason, Kyle Keller and Brandon Miller but when McKay got running up top, he made the pass and took off. McKay rolled his car a few weeks earlier at Lincoln Speedway and has been working to get it back on the track. The work paid off as he crossed the finish line first ahead of the 14-car field.

 

Despite nearly 120 racecars and seven divisions, the night of racing was quick and fast and over shortly after 10pm. Micro Sprint driver and 10-year-old Aarin Squires of Springfield as well as Scooter's Auto Sales LLC in Springfield donated two bicycles to be given away at intermission as part of the night's CEFCU Kid's Club. Mother's Day weekend at Macon Speedway welcomes the POWRi Midgets and Micro Sprints to the 1/5th mile dirt track. The Macon Speedway Pro Late Models, Modifieds and Hornets will also be on hand to compete. Gates will open up at 5pm for specators, hot laps at 6pm and racing by 7pm.

Measamer and Singletary pick up victories in Carteret thriller

PELETIER, NC – Jody Measamer and Chase Singletary’s thrilling wins headlined Saturday night’s Battle at the Beach at Bobby Watson’s Carteret County Speedway.

Measamer had trailed pole-sitter Jared Fryar, who was driving as a teammate to Measamer, during the first half of the 50 lap Super Truck feature.  After racing side-by-side for several laps, Measamer was able to edge past Fryar on lap 28 and then eventually able to clear him a few laps later – but was never able to drive away. 

“I’m glad to get this deal pulled through,” Measamer said.  “I’d like to thank Jared for everything he did.  He had a good truck, looked like it might have got a little free.  Mine got tight.  Neither truck was perfect.  Tickled with it.  This is what it’s all about.”

Fryar ran within a truck length or two of Measamer until the checkered flag waved, however, he was not close enough to make the race-winning move on the last lap and settled for a runner-up finish.

“That was fun,” Fryar said.  “I can’t thank Jody or Kenneth [Packer] and everybody on this team enough for giving me the opportunity to run this.  Jody had a little better truck.  We got a little free off and he got by me.  I feel like, we’ll come back and make it better.  I enjoyed it.”

Adam Fulford finished in third – also within striking distance of a potential win.

Chase Singletary picked up his third Legends win, and the biggest win of his career to date, after making a daring pass on pole sitter Brenton Irving in the early laps of the race and holding the two-time division champion at bay.  Irving spun trying to make a pass on Singletary on the 10th lap of the race, but Singletary still had to hold off a challenge from Brenton Irving’s father, Shane Irving, to score the win.

“That was good ass racing,” Singletary said.  “I had a lot of fun in that race.  My arms are worn out after that one.  We had a really fast car today and I was able to pull it off.  I can’t tell you how hard I was driving.”

Shane Irving ultimately held on to finish second.

“We got a little loose but Chase, he’s a good driver,” Irving said.  “He’s an up-and-coming good driver.  He raced me clean.  We raced hard.”

Irving had blown a motor while leading in the April 17th race.  He got an engine from fellow Legends racer Frank Pass prior to Saturday night’s race.

Brenton Irving rallied from his lap 10 spin to finish third.

“Congratulations Chase,” Irving said.  “He drove his butt off, and my dad drove his butt off.  I was about to knock my dad up the track, it was getting a little tricky there.  Awesome run.  I think that was a great show for the fans and fans better come back for the sequel.”

The Super Trucks and Legends weren’t the only thrillers of the evening.  The Invidia FN Bomber race featured a thrilling, often three-wide battle for the second position.  Duane Walker scored the win while Ricky Heigl raced his way back up to second after a penalty early in the race, and Joey Vereen finished third.  The Champ Kart division also saw a close finish between teammates Sean Wales and Tyler Foster, with Wales winning.

Other divisions: Adam Mattice picked up his fourth consecutive Jr. Mini Cup victory, Travis Miller held off Andrew Jackson in the Battlefield Tire Pros Mini Stock feature, while Tyler Smith picked up his first career Carteret County Speedway win in the Street Stock class.

The next race at Bobby Watson’s Carteret County Speedway will take place on Saturday, May 15th, headlined by the Solid Rock Carriers Fast Five Late Model Series.

PANKOW SCORES 1ST A MAIN WIN AT FLAT ROCK

Flat Rock, MI—May 8, 2021:  Second-generation driver James Pankow scored a huge win, leading every lap on his way to his first career A Main win in the 25 lap ARCA DTS Drive Train Specialists Street Stock feature Saturday afternoon at Flat Rock Speedway.  Steve Cronenwett Jr. notched his first win in 5 years, winning the ARCA Moran Chevrolet Outlaw Super Late Model race, while Caleb Barron (Street Stock B Main) and Billy Earley (ARCA Figure 8) also took feature wins.

Pankow led the field to the green flag for the 25 lap A Main and withstood challenges from both Greg Studt and Jeff Metdepenningen.  That duo traded lanes several times, with each driver trying the top groove while James held the point.  Pankow stayed in command the entire distance to grab the big victory.  Metdepenningen held second spot, Studt was third, David Liaeff fourth and Gary Cronenwett fifth, followed by Clarity Patton, Nick Shanks, Max Fair, rookie Lance Lipasek and Landon Schuster.

Caleb Barron topped rookie Robert Stewart, Brice Thomsen, Mike Miller and Rich Abel to win the 15 lap Street Stock B Main.  Liaeff set fast time for the 25-car field at 13:191.  Stewart led the B cars with a lap of 14:152.  Heat race winners were Studt, Shanks, Lonnie York and Stewart.

The Moran Chevrolet Outlaw Super Late Model field is quite tough through the first 2 weeks of the season.  With 14 cars in the 11 second bracket, the field has displayed very competitive racing throughout the pack.  The 11-car inversion put Paul Pelletier and Claude Plante Jr. on the front row.  Pelletier darted out front on the start, as the battle began.  Cronenwett followed Paul’s tire tracks lap after lap, while Harold Fair Jr. was on the move in the outside lane.  On lap 27, Cronenwett jumped to the high groove and took control of the race.  The pack continued great racing, swapping spots and lanes among 5 to 6 cars the entire 50 lap distance.  Conner Zbozien nosed under Pelletier to take second in the late stages but could not catch Cronenwett as he picked up the win in record-setting fashion of 10 minutes and 20 seconds for the all-green flag 50 lap run.  Pelletier held on for third, Fair Jr. was fourth and Justin Schroeder fifth.  Eric Lee, Frank Jiovani, Stan Yee Jr., Hayden Sprague and Jeff Vrsek completed the top ten.  Zbozien and Chris Benson took heat wins.  Jiovani set quick time at 11:598.

Former track champ Billy Earley made his first trip to Flat Rock and scored the win in the 20 lap ARCA Figure 8 feature race.  Dennis Whisman Jr., last week’s winner, led the event for 7 laps while Earley stayed glued to his bumper.  Billy nosed by Dennis on lap 8 and held back Whisman and Jakob Lee for the victory.  Ethen Lambert was fourth and Tom O’Leary IV fifth, followed by Dave Lambert, Stephanie Bradley, Eugene Worden, Race Loving and David Katafiaz.  There was no qualifying as a break in the Figure 8 scoring loop gave the drivers a random draw for heat race setup and the finish with an inversion setting the feature field.  Earley and Lee took heat wins.

Cronenwett Jr. ($150), Pankow and Earley ($100) and Barron ($25) collected the Innovative Fluids, LLC bonus, which is being paid to the feature winners for each weekly event for the 2021 season.  Cronenwett will also receive a $200 Penske Shocks certificate, while fifth place Schroeder gets a $100 Penske Shock award, which will also be presented for each Outlaw Super Late Model race at Flat Rock this season.  Whisman Jr. took the $50 Sunoco random draw bonus home.  Zbozien was the $50 Moran Chevrolet Hard Charger Award winner.

Flat Rock Speedway roars back into action next Saturday, May 15.  It’s Kids Day!  All kids to age 12 will be admitted free and receive a free hot dog and a soft drink or water, courtesy of Pepsi and Schwebel’s Bakery.  Parents can get the kids tickets at the ticket window on race day.  The box office and front gates open at 2, with racing at 4 p.m.  There is no advance ticket sale for this event.

The Vault Enduro 250 lap race hits the track for the first of their 4 events of 2021, with the ARCA Figure 8’s going Retro!  A 4-car dash and pursuit race on the oval will take place for the class. The ARCA DTS Drive Train Specialists Street Stocks will also be in action.  The Bandoleros will make their first appearance of the season for the May 15 Kids Day.

 

Foos takes a liking to Fremont; Stroup comes on strong late for 305 win; Valenti, McCaughey split truck wins

FREMONT, Ohio – DJ Foos and his Burmeister Racing Team just seem to know what adjustments to make when Fremont Speedway slicks off. The Fremont, Ohio driver took the lead of the Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 sprint feature on lap six and drove to the victory on Custom Metal Works Night.

 

Foos, who also owns a win in 2021 at Attica Raceway Park, also takes the early lead in the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products 410 Attica Fremont Championship Series (AFCS) Presented by the Baumann Auto Group. Foos, the 2019 AFCS champion, had to hold off several challenges from Fremont’s 2020 track champion Nate Dussel for his 18th career win at “The Track That Action Built.”

 

“I’m just so blessed to have this opportunity to drive for this team. The Burmeisters and Mike Sommers and all the guys work so hard on this thing. I thought I was too good too early but when the track slicks off like this we shine. I tried changing lanes a few times and it paid off,” said Foos beside his Crown Battery, CR Juices, All in Tent Rentals, Dave Story Equipment, Burmeister Trophy, Sonny’s Signs, Vantage Branding, The Jet Express, Berryman Racing Shocks, Kistler Engines, Kistler Racing Products backed machine.

 

Fremont, Ohio’s Dustin Stroup came alive with just five laps to go in the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprint feature and drove to his third career win at the track.

 

“I’m not really sure what happened but this thing just took off with about eight laps to go. I knew we were good because we had some good runs on guys coming off of two. I can’t thank everyone enough…this thing just ran phenomenal tonight,” said Stroup beside his Automatic Fire Protection; MLP Lawn care & Snow Removal; Vantage Branding; Level Performance; Advance Auto Parts backed #10x.

 

Fostoria, Ohio’s Shawn Valenti took the lead in the 20 lap Burmeister Trophy Dirt Truck A-main on lap five and pulled away for his 62nd career Fremont Speedway win. He is now tied with hall-of-famer Gug Keegan for second on the track’s all-time win list behind Art Ball.

 

“I’m thankful to be back up here. It’s amazing to be up there with those names. Hopefully we can have a good season and add a few to it. The track dried out a little bit…we were too tight in that first feature and made some adjustments to it and got it dialed in. I found the bottom in the sprint car feature and it helped. I have to thank the Babcocks for everything they do. I have to thank A Plus Auto Center, Roelle Fabrication, Craig Miller Trucking, Speedways Bar and Grill, Best Performance Motorsports, KS Sales & Service, Gressman Powersports and Dave Story Equipment backed truck.

 

Toledo, Ohio’s Cory McCaughey dominated the dirt truck feature earlier in the night, which was a make-up from last week’s rained out affair. It was McCaughey’s sixth career Fremont win.

 

“That’s a bad truck right there. Whatever Mark (Kachenmeister) is doing…just keep rubbing that voodoo in this thing and I’ll just keep wheeling this thing,” said McCaughey of his KC Engineering, DDH Farms, Ron Miller Race Cars, DAS Machining, BRJ Construction, Dirt Roudy’s sponsored #911.

 

Craig Mintz and Travis Philo brought the field to green for the 410 A-main with Mintz grabbing the lead over Foos, Philo, Chris Andrews, Dussel and Ryan Broughton. Dussel quickly moved into third on lap three with Foos battling side by side with Mintz for the lead before edging ahead on lap six.  Foos was able to pull away slightly while Mintz battled with Dussel and Philo for the runner-up spot.

 

Dussel took second on lap 10 just before a caution flew. When the green reappeared Dussel applied heavy pressure to Foos for the lead but once things got going Foos pulled away ever so slightly with Philo taking third on lap 15. The car on the move was 12th starting Cole Macedo who moved into fifth at the halfway point.

 

Heavy lapped traffic came into play with 10 laps to go but Foos was able to move around and get by while Dussel, Philo, Mintz and Macedo gave chase. Foos was able to maintain a two car length advantage the rest of the way taking the checkers over Dussel, Philo, Macedo and Mintz.

 

Steve Rando jumped to the early lead of the 25-lap 305 sprint main with Matt Foos, Jamie Miller, Stroup, Zeth Sabo and Paul Weaver in pursuit. Following a caution on lap two and another on the restart, Foos pounced on the second attempt at a green, driving into the lead. A lap later and another race stoppage couldn’t slow Foos who started to pull away while Rando, Miller, Stroup, Weaver and Sabo battled hard for second.

 

Foos encountered lapped traffic with nine laps to go and Stroup, who had taken second a lap earlier, quickly closed. Stroup drove into the lead on lap 20 and only a caution with two laps left gave the field another chance. Stroup got an excellent restart and drove to the win over Foos, Weaver, Rando an Sabo.

 

In the 20 lap dirt truck feature, JT Horn and Jim Holcomb brought the field to green but it was third starter McCaughey taking the lead. Following a debris caution on lap four, McCaughey was locked in a tremendous battle with Valenti, Dan Hennig and Holcomb. Valenti took the lead on lap five just prior to a caution. On the restart Valenti immediately pulled away while Holcomb, Hennig, Brad Mitten and McCaughey battled for second.

 

Not ever heavy lapped traffic with six laps to go could slow Valenti who drove to the win over Holcomb, Mitten, Hennig and 18th starter Jeff Babcock.

 

In the make-up truck feature from the previous week, McCaughey jumped into the lead at the drop of the green and pulled way. Jamie Miller would get around Valenti late to take second with Dana Fry and Austin Black rounding out the top five.

 

There is no racing at Fremont Speedway on May 8 but “The Track That Action Built” gets back to the fun on Saturday, May 15 on Great Lakes Trucks Armed Forces Night with the AFCS 410 sprints battling for $4,000 to win, the AFCS 305 Sprints going for $1,200 to win and the dirt trucks back in action.
