BARRON ROARS TO FIRST-EVER FLAT ROCK WIN

 
Flat Rock, MI-May 18, 2019: Caleb Barron grew up watching and crewing for his late grandfather, Bob Rae, as a youngster at Flat Rock Speedway. Several years ago, with Bob at his side, Caleb and his brother, Collin, took over the driving duties of the #103. Bob has passed on, but he was certainly smiling down on his grandson Saturday night, as Caleb edged out Greg Studt and Rob Randa to win the ARCA DTS Drive Train Specialists Street Stock A Main 25 lap feature.
Ian Jezylo, Billy Earley, Robb Remick and Joel Smith also visited the Monroe Asphalt Winner's Circle on Kid's Night at the track. All kids to age 12 were admitted free to the grounds and also received a free hot dog.
The field of Street Stocks at "The Rock" is very tough already this season. Fast qualifier Guy Fire (13:258), pulled an 11 for the inversion, putting Caleb on the pole. Barron motored out front at the drop of the green flag and stayed there for the entire 25 lap distance, while the action behind the leader heated up. Greg Studt and Rob Randa began to close in on Barron as the laps wound down, but Caleb held on, setting up an emotional victory lane celebration with his family and crew. Studt ended up second, Randa was third, Clarity Patton fourth and Ethan Stadniczuk fifth, followed by Scott Selmi, Kyle Worley, Fire, David Liaeff and Arnold Kirsch.
Ian Jezylo grabbed his second win in 3 tries with a victory in the 15 lap DTS Drive Train Specialists Street Stock B Main contest. Ian started at the back of the pack and worked his way to the front to take the lead and the win over LJ Farmer, Gary Navarre, Rich Abel, Adam Jezylo, Leroy Farmer, Taylor Papineau and Justin Peterman. Peterman pounded the turn 3 wall in the event, resulting in heavy damage to his machine, while he was ok.
Navarre led the B field in qualifying at 14:198. Patton, Worley, Chris Diovardi and LJ Farmer took the heat race wins.
Billy Earley returned to action after a week off and picked up the win in the 20 lap ARCA Victory Lane Quick Oil Change Figure 8 feature race. Jeremy Vanderhoof, who encountered engine woes in practice, jumped behind the wheel of his cousin James' machine and took second, with Dennis Whisman Jr. third, Joe Vanderhoof fourth and Dennis Whisman fifth. Whisman and Ethen Lambert tangled at the intersection, sending both cars spinning and then continuing on. Dave Lambert, Ethen Lambert and Stephanie Bradley were next in line at the finish. Earley set quick time at 20:665, with Joe Vanderhoof taking the heat win.
3-time champion Robb Remick pulled away in the late going to score the win in The Vault Antiques and Treasures 250 lap Enduro race. Matt Ringger, Ed Case, Jacob Thomas (with a great run), Rick Bennett, Kyle Metdepenningen, Cody Remick, Nathan Sprotberry, Troy Brehmer and Dillon Zalenski rounded out the top 10 finishers in the 25 car starting field. Metdepenningen set quick time at 13:842, a track record for the Enduro class.
Joel Smith battled to win the Bandolero feature over Killian McMahon.
Saturday, May 25 is the date for the Varsity Automotive Group Joy Fair Memorial 100. The ARCA Moran Chevrolet Late Models will battle in the 100 lap contest, which is the first point race of the season for the ARCA Late Model Gold Cup Series. It's Retro Night for the Street Stocks, with 4 car dashes and pursuit races on the schedule. The track will also hold its annual Racer's Reunion. Race time is 7 p.m.

 
O'LEARY IV SAILS TO TOLEDO VICTORY
Toledo, Ohio-May 18, 2019: Third-generation driver Tommy O'Leary IV kicked off the 2019 ARCA Late Model Sportsman season with a victory in the 35 lap feature race at Toledo Speedway Saturday afternoon. The event was part of Pole Day at the ˝ mile paved oval for the ARCA Menards Series Stock Cars.

 
O'Leary started on the pole via the 5 car inversion and led every lap in the all-green flag event, as Tommy grabbed the win and visited the Monroe Asphalt Winner's Circle. Ron Allen came home second, Mike Young was third, rookie Grant Hedges was fourth and Kent McCloskey was fifth, followed by Andy Harding, Robert Meiring, Howard Kelley Jr., Adam Plonski and Jimmy Wall.

 
Allen had a tire go down after taking the checkered flag as he slid into turn 1. Kelley, the defending champ of the class, had engine trouble while running in second spot, ending his day early.

 
Hedges, at the wheel of Jim Froling's #46, set fast time at 17:069.

 
The division returns to action Friday night, May 31 at Toledo as part of the race card for the Night of Destruction event. A School Bus Figure 8 race, Boat Figure 8, The Vault Antiques and Treasures Factory Stocks and....MEGASAURUS, the car-crushing, fire-breathing dinosaur are also on the schedule of events.

CUMMINS, MAY, BEADLES COLLECT WINS TO OPEN THE SEASON
 


 

    Haubstadt, IN -May 18, 2019 -  It was a victorious night for four
 

time champion Kyle Cummins of Princeton, IN.  The veteran sprint car
 

racer made a clean sweep of the BRANDEIS Midwest Sprint Car Series
 

portion of the MIDWEST MADNESS event at Tri-State Speedway Saturday
 

night.  Cummins set fast time to start the evening and then won his
 

heat race and the 25 lap feature event.  That victory was worth
 

$2,500.  The sweep also gave Cummins the point lead at the start of
 

the season.
 

    Despite lining up fourth for the feature in a starting field with the
 

top six heat race transfers inverted, Cummins took the lead on lap
 

one.  Then he put the Rock Steady Racing sprinter into auto-motion.
 

He quickly pulled away from the field.  Cummins lapped car after car.
 

The other top five finishers were the only drivers on the lead lap
 

at the finish.
 

    Cummins was at the wheel of a Mach 1 Sprint sponsored by Debra Corn
 

Foster Care, Tim Mason Remax, and Greenwell Auto Body.  The car is
 

owned by Hank Byram of Dupont, IN.  Tim Spindler serves as the crew
 

chief.
 

      Donny Brackett of Ft. Branch, IN, would finish second.  He held off
 

2018 MIDWEST MADNESS winner Stephen Schnapf along with Kent Schmidt,
 

and Brady Short.  The four competitors completed the top five.  Aric
 

Gentry recovered to finish sixth after being involved in an accident
 

in turn four.  Gentry was forced to make a quick visit to the work
 

area under red flag conditions with only 10 laps to go.  His car had
 

turned over as he was unable to avoid another car driven by Dustin
 

Christie.  Dakota Jackson, Chet Williams, Brian Karraker, and Collin
 

Ambrose rounded out the top ten.
 

    Stephen Schnapf  became the first driver to win the new $100
 

Certified Rentals Hard Charger Award.  The Evansville, IN, driver
 

gained 9 hard fought spots in the feature.  The Wilwood Tuff Brakes
 

Award was presented to Jadon Rogers.  The first and second heats For
 

the BRANDEIS MSCS Sprints were won by Kent Schmidt and Donny
 

Brackett.
 


 

    In the Built Ford Tough MOWA Winged Sprints, Paul May of Terre Haute,
 

IN, took the feature victory in a battle with Cory Bruns.  It was a
 

$2,000 pay day for May!  Critter Malone was third followed by Clinton
 

Boyles and Jeremy Standridge. Malone had started 13th and was on the
 

move!  The three MOWA heat races were victories for Paul Nienhiser,
 

Paul May, and Clinton Boyles.  The only sprint car driver present to
 

compete with a winged and a non-wing car was Chayse Hayhurst.  His
 

best finish in the two back to back features was a 12th with the MSCS
 

series.
 


 

    In the UMP Open Wheel Modifieds Stan Beadles of Owensville, IN,
 

collected the victory along with the $600 feature prize money.
 

Beadles had some strong competition in the form of runner-up Levi
 

Kissinger and Zach Fair who finished third.  It was the closest
 

finish of the program.  Dustin Beck and Lance Foreman rounded out the
 

top five.  Heat race winners were Dustin Beck and Stan Beadles.
 


 

    The next race at Tri-State Speedway will be The Memorial Weekend
 

Classic on Sunday May 26th featuring the MSCS Sprints, MMSA Mini

pAUCH CLAIMS FIRST WIN ON BRIDGEPORT'S DESIGN FOR VISION/SUNGLASS CENTRAL 3/8TH MILE
 


 

 
Billy Pauch, Wayne Weaver, Eric Kormann and Tom Wills, Jr. shared the limelight as they all picked up their first wins on Bridgeport's Design for Vision/Sunglass Central 3/8th mile track during Saturday night's racing program sponsored by Sunbelt Rentals.

 
It was Pauch's first win on the 3/8th mile track but his second win of the season at Bridgeport.  This time, his dominant victory came with his Big Block K&A Excavating No. 1 with sail panels.  "If you want to sail, you've got to have sail panels.  Right?," Pauch quipped after picking up the win in the twenty-five lap feature event for the Spirit Auto Center Big Block Modifieds.  

 
Polesitter, Roger Manning grabbed the lead at the wave of the green and then led the first three laps as Pauch made quick work from his fourth place starting position.   Pauch immediately began to distance himself from the rest of the field as Mike Franz and Richie Pratt, Jr. battled for second.  Pratt took the runner-up spot on lap six with the Danny's Pizza Pizzazz No. 51 but was challenged by Franz several times during the event.  Neal Wiliams raced into fourth by half way.  It was the fifth place spot that saw the most heated competition as Manning, Ryan Anderson and Brett Ballard raced three wide for the position.

 
At the end of twenty-five laps, it was Pauch who led Pratt, Franz, Williams and Ballard to the checkered flag.  Anderson, Manning, Dominick Buffalino, Ryan Watt (who raced his way through the field after a mid-race flat) and David Hunt completed the top ten in the running order at the checkered flag.  

 
Pauch talked about the racing on the 3/8th mile.  "It's just a matter of getting used to it and getting set-up for it," Pauch explained.  "It sure is easier on the motors." noting that there were no engine issues on this race night as compared to other races on the 5/8th mile track.

 
Wayne Weaver led the first lap of the South Jersey Overhead Door 602 Crate/Sportsman feature event last week before the rain forced the cancellation of the remainder of the show.  Weaver picked up where he left off one week earlier and led every lap to capture the held-over event, his first win on the 3/8th mile surface.  "It's neat to win on this track," Weaver commented following his win.  Steve Kemery finished second followed by Jim Gallagher, Matt Peck and Andrew Belmont.

 
In the second 602 Crate Sportsman feature event, Eric Kormann put an end to his winless streak, taking the win in the twenty lap event.  "I was one of the biggest critics of this track," Kormann exclaimed from Victory Lane, "And here I sit in Victory Lane!".  It was Kormann's first win on the Design for Vision/Sunglass Central surface and his first Bridgeport victory since July of 2016. Weaver finished second followed by Rich Wenger, Matt Peck and James Hill.

 
Rich Stinson, Jr. led the first four laps of the Sunbelt Rentals Outlaw Stock feature event before Tom Wills, Jr. won the challenge for the lead on lap five.  Wills led the rest of the way with Stinson finishing second.  Gary Klimeczak crossed the line in third with Brian Ludwig and Billy Wrobel rounding out the top five.  

 
Justin Moench was the winner in the DA's Auto Body & Repair Rookie feature event.  It was Moench's second win of the season but first on the 3/8th mile track.  Scott Maher, Jr. finished second with Jonathan John taking third.  

 
The Xcel 600 Modifieds made their first appearance on the Design for Vision/Sunglass Central 3/8th mile track.  Polesitter, Sam Sciccitano led all twenty laps to capture the win over Brian Blankenbiller and Matt Warner.

 
Racing returns to Bridgeport's Design for Vision/Sunglass Central Speedway when the World of Outaws NOS Energy Sprint cars come to town on Tuesday evening for a doubleheader with the South Jersey Overhead Door 602 Crate Sportsman.  Racing gets underway at 7:30.   Then it's the All American 40 on Sunday for the second hand of the 2019 Poker Series, featuring the Big Block Modifieds, 602 Crate Sportsman, USAC East Coast Wingless Sprint Cars and 8 Cylinder Enduros with racing getting underway at 7pm.

Jake Karklin Wins Wild TriboDyn Lubricants Carolina Sprint Tour Event at Harris Speedway

 

Inside Line Promotions - HARRIS, N.C. (May 19, 2019) - Jake Karklin captured an action-packed TriboDyn Lubricants Carolina Sprint Tour feature event on Saturday at Harris Speedway.

 

Karklin is the only driver to finish on the podium during both races this season.

Brandon McLain finished in the runner-up position with John Karklin placing third, Mike Jackson fourth and Mike Sellers fifth.

 

One of the biggest moments of the night came just after the midpoint of the 25-lap main event as Sean Vardell's engine cut off coming out of turn four. As he drifted up the track to get out of the way of his fellow competitors, the fourth car in line - Bronzie Lawson - wasn't able to spot Vardell until it was too late. Lawson hopped Vardell's right rear tire and flipped down the frontstretch. Lawson did go to the hospital, but has been released.

 

Vardell and George Blaney were the heat race winners.

 

The next TriboDyn Lubricants Carolina Sprint Tour race is a non-points event next Friday and Saturday at Hagerstown Speedway in Hagerstown, Md.

 

The next points race for the series is June 8 at 311 Speedway in Pine Hall, N.C. That event will have one of the biggest paying purses in the history of the series. The winner will receive $1,000 with second earning $550 and third $475. It pays $311 to start the A Main.

 

VP Racing Fuels is putting up one free drum of M1 methanol to the team with the longest haul.

 

The event will be the first of several live streamed events through Total Sports Network. The series will host qualifying that night. The Fast Time Award pays $50 and one oil change from TriboDyn Lubricants.

Meseraull Tops Sprint Car Feature

In ‘Open-Wheel Madness’ Show Friday

At Gas City I-69 Speedway

 

GAS CITY, Ind., May 18 — Thomas Meseraull of Waveland, Ind. captured the headlining 25-lap non-wing sprint car feature Friday night at Gas City I-69 Speedway’s “Open-Wheel Madness” show. It was a bit like heaven on earth for open-wheel fans, as with four classes the program offered the most diverse night of open-wheel racing in Indiana.  

 

Anton Hernandez of Arlington, Texas won the first IMCA Racing Xcaliber Graphics Indiana RaceSaver 305 winged sprint car feature ever held at the quarter-mile dirt oval. Also a 25-lapper, it was co-sanctioned by CRS Sprints. Tyler Nelson of Indianapolis won the 20-lap open-competition midget feature, and Joey Paxson of Connersville, Ind. topped the 15-lap UMRA three-quarter-midget’s main event during “Hoosier Auto Racing Fans (HARF) Night.”

 

There were 30 non-wing sprint cars, 24 305 winged sprint cars, 34 midgets and 17 TQ midgets on hand.

 

“T Mez” started fifth in the 20-car non-wing sprint car feature in the No. 47, a DRC chassis which is owned by Tom Eades of Sharpsville, Ind., powered by a Stensland-prepared Chevy engine, sponsored by Physical Medicine Consultants of Fort Wayne, Ind., and wrenched by Allen Brown of Kokomo, Ind.

 

Polesitter Matt Westfall of Pleasant Hill, Ohio led the first 16 laps in the Ray Marshall Motorsports No. 33M Maxim until Meseraull took the lead in Turn 2. Defending track champion Clinton Boyles of Lees Summit, Mo. started 11th in Paul Hazen’s DRC but steadily moved up until he powered under Westfall for second in Turn 3 on lap 19. Westfall hung on for third followed by Shane Cottle of Kansas, Ill. in Jamie and Michelle Paul’s DRC and Tyler Hewitt of Marion, Ind. in the One More Time Motorsports Maxim. The people’s champion, Dave Darland of Atlanta, Ind., who was making his first start since flipping hard in a USAC sprint race at Eldora Speedway in Ohio on May 10, finished sixth in his wife Brenda’s DRC.

 

Michael Koontz of Bloomington, Ind. flipped in Turn 4 with 10 laps down, but climbed out of his car under his own power and later finished second in the midget feature.

 

Alex Nalon led the first eight laps of the 305 winged sprint car feature until Hernandez took the lead with a move to the outside as they went down the backstretch. There were two yellows and a red later in the race and lapped traffic made Hernandez’s job harder, but the 21-year-old driver took the checkered over Bradley Sterrett, Nalon, Jackson Slone and Ethan Barrow in a sprint car sponsored by Velocita-USA and Big D’s Pizza, among other companies.

 

The red flag in that race with 18 laps down was for the most bizarre accident of the night. Andy Bradley, who was fourth at the time, flipped in Turn 2, and Jordan Welch, who was sixth, flipped in Turn 4. Luckily neither needed the assistance of the ambulance crew and they’ll hope for better luck when the series returns to Gas City on Oct. 5.

 

Nelson came from the fifth starting spot to nab his first Gas City feature victory in the midget main event. Polesitter Michael Koontz led the first two laps before Chris Baue passed him on a restart after Oliver Akrad stopped between Turns 3 and 4. After a three-way battle for the lead between Koontz, Baue and Nelson, the latter emerged at the head of the pack on lap four and led the rest of the way. Koontz, Nick Spiedel, Aaron Leffel and Hernandez, who was doing double duty, rounded out the top five. Leffel’s effort was particularly noteworthy, as he started 15th.

 

Paxson started second in the TQ feature, got the jump on his teammate, Johnny Goff, at the start, and led all 15 laps. He was able to build up a huge lead, lost his advantage twice due to yellows, but still held off Tate Martz to become the fourth different winner in as many UMRA TQ midget features so far this year. Cory Clay, Matt Hedrick and Goff rounded out the top five.

 

The races were covered by Speed Shift TV. The beginning of the show was delayed an hour and a half due to rain.

 

Tomorrow (Sunday) the American Ethanol late models and modifieds will stage a show at Gas City in a program that will also include a non-points hornets race. The late model feature winner will receive $4,000 and the modified winner $1,500.

 

Next Friday night is the track’s “Salute to the Military” show for the Memorial Day weekend. Non-wing sprint cars, UMP modifieds, street stocks, super streets and hornets will provide the action. Those five divisions plus the first appearance of the tough trucks class will be on the card on Friday, May 31 before the USAC NOS national midgets highlight a mid-week show on Wednesday, June 5 that will also include non-wing sprint cars and 600cc non-wing mini sprints.

Kofoid scores exciting 410 win at Fremont; Weaver tames 305s, Valenti again in trucks

 

 
By Brian Liskai
 
FREMONT, Ohio - Michael "Buddy" Kofoid had only raced at Fremont Speedway twice, including Saturday, May 18. But, the 17-year-old Penngrove, California driver looked like a long-time veteran, handling a tricky track surface, passing for the lead late in the 410 sprint feature and holding off a challenger to score his first ever win at "The Track That Action Built" on Kistler Engines Night.
 
Kofoid, who looked to be heading for his first win in Ohio the previous night at Attica Raceway Park only to suffer a minor issue and finish third, tracked down race long leader Travis Philo with 10 laps to go to take the lead and then held off fast qualifier Justin Peck to score the $4,000 win thanks to Spanky's Pizza of Carey. Kofoid unofficially takes the lead in the point standings in All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series (AFCS) Presented by the Baumann Auto Group.
 
"That was probably the most physically and mentally tough race I've ever run. I was so determined and I had so much adrenaline and it keeps you going in the seat. My hands are so cramped right now I can barely pull a tear off and pull myself out of my car. Yesterday at Attica we had a lot of speed and probably should have won but had some issues but having that much speed gave me a big momentum boost. I had to sack up and run the rough stuff. I felt like I knew I was making it work in three and four a car width higher than them and a couple of times I tried way to high and almost blew myself into the turn four wall. I figured it out right through the middle above those guys," said an exhausted Kofoid in the Engine Pro Victory Lane.
 
"I can't thank Ed Neumeister enough for giving me an amazing opportunity for me to fulfill my dream and come out here and race full time. Of course the Linders for all their help and letting me live with them. Also thanks to Gill Construction, CK Plumbing, Linder's Speed Equipment, DMI, AL Driveline, ProShocks...without those guys I wouldn't be standing here," Kofoid added.
 
Former Fremont Speedway track champion Paul Weaver battled with Luke Griffith throughout the opening half of the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprint feature before grabbing the lead on lap 12 and holding off Jamie Miller for his 48th career victory at the track. Weaver is tied for seventh on the track's all-time win list. The victory puts Weaver in the running for the championship of the KS Sales and Service AFCS presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer sales.
 
"Running second wasn't  bad...your focus was on getting into the lead and you really didn't think about the track. But once you got into the lead then it got really rough. I want to thank Bob Hampshire and Dave Rice for the motor on this deal, my nephew Daniel, Schiets Motorsports, B&B Drain...they just come on board, Russ Adkins come on this year to help out...I can't thank them enough," said Weaver.
 
While the stat sheet will show Fostoria, Ohio's Shawn Valenti led all 20 laps of the Burmeister Trophy Dirt Truck feature it wasn't easy as former track champion Kent Brewer challenged him the entire distance. But, Valenti was able to hold on for the win, his 48th career victory at the track to tie him with Weaver for seventh on the all-time win list. It was his second victory of the year at Fremont and third overall of 2019 in the truck division, having scored the win at Attica the previous week.
 
"The track was something else tonight but I know these guys are working on it to make it the best they can be and hopefully now we can get the bad weather behind us and get some racing in. The top looks like the smoothest but Kent stuck his nose down there so I had to go down there. I have to thank the Babcocks for everything they do for me, Craig Miller Trucking, Speedways Bar and Grill out of Bradner, Gressman Powersports, Best Performance Motorsports, A Plus Auto Center and everyone who helps out," said Valenti.
 
At the drop of the Silver Top Bar and Grill Green Flag for the Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprint 30-lap A-main outside front row starter Travis Philo jumped into the lead but after a lap was completed a three car tangle involving Jac Haudenschild, Byron Reed and Trey Jacobs slowed the pace. On the restart Philo pulled away from Dale Blaney, Justin Peck, Joey Saldana, Nate Dussel and Kofoid. While Kofoid pulled away, Blaney and Peck battled hard for second with Peck taking the spot on lap six and quickly closed on Philo. That left Blaney to battle Saldana for third with Kofoid joining in on that fun by lap 10.
 
As Philo and Peck ran nose to tail, Saldana took third on lap 11 with Blaney and Kofoid continuing to apply pressure. The leaders raced into lapped traffic just before the half way point when Kofoid used the middle groove to take third from Saldana three laps latter. With 10 laps to go it was now a three car battle for the lead involving Philo, Kofoid and Peck. Kofoid once again used the middle line to grab the lead on lap 21, with Peck taking second a lap later. Peck tried lap after lap to get around Kofoid but to no avail.
 
Kofoid took the checkers half a car length over Peck with Philo, Saldana and Nate Dussel rounding out the top five.
 
In the 305 feature outside front row starter Luke Griffith grabbed the early lead over Jimmy McGrath, Weaver and Seth Schneider. Weaver quickly moved into second but Griffith started to pull away as Schneider took third and Jamie Miller and Tyler Street rounding out the top five. Weaver used lapped traffic to reel Griffith in and took the lead on lap 12 just as the caution flew for a Schneider spin. On the restart Miller drove around Griffith into second and stayed within striking distance of Weaver. The veteran Weaver worked his way through the lapped cars and drove to the win over Miller, Griffith, Street and John Ivy.
 
Valenti, who started outside the front row, quickly took the lead in the dirt truck feature over Keith Sorg, Brewer and Jim Holcomb. Brewer took second on a restart on lap four and hounded Valenti until a caution slowed the pace with four laps to go. In the shoot out Valenti was able to hold off both Brewer and Holcomb for the win with John Brooks and Sorg rounding out the top five.
 
Fremont Speedway has a big Memorial Day weekend double-header. It begins Saturday, May 25 as the FAST 410 Series invades along with the 305 sprints. General admission is only $10 for adults. The following night, Sunday, May 26, Tony Stewart's Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions Presented by Mobile 1 return to "The Track That Action Built" after a three year absence. The dirt trucks join the card on Sunday.

Little Takes Feature on Armed Forces Night

 

By BZ

 

(Macon, IL) Jake Little and his uncle Ryan are active members in the Illinois National Guard and the US Army. On Armed Forces Night, Jake Little reigned supreme in the Decatur Building Trades Pro Late Model Feature at Macon Speedway. Little missed out on a possible championship in 2018 when he was sent overseas for active duty in August into September and missed many of the final races to take away his points lead. Ryan Little doesn't have much of a chance to race enough for a championship because of his active status which has forced him away from the racecar for the majority of the 2019 season.

 

Both Little drivers started in the front row and looked prepared to take the race but Jake Little knew he had to get to the high side and run away from the group. He was able to do just that. Dakota Ewing, starting from the 13th position due to a DNF in his heat race due to a near rollover and a flat tire, broke through the pack and challenged for a top five finish. Ewing would finish third in the 20-lap feature and nearly finish in the runner-up spot.

 

Tommy Sheppard, Jr. won the feature in the BillingsleyRewards.com Modifieds. The race was his for the entire event but a late caution set up a bumper-to-bumper restart with Rodney Standerfer behind Sheppard. Standerfer pulled close-to-even with the leader but couldn't find a way to make the pass and Sheppard took another checkered flag.

 

Wes O'Dell was sharp in the Sportsman class. After winning his heat by a half lap ahead of the second place finisher, O'Dell started on the front row outside position and blasted off ahead of Scott Landers and the rest of the cars. The former champion looked dominate and made an impact in the Sportsman points standings as points leader Dennis Vandermeersch was not part of the 12-car field.

 

Terry Reed took another Archer's Alley Street Stocks feature win. Two weeks ago, his brother Gene Reed won the feature and Terry took the Opening Night checkered flag. It was a Reed Win-Place-Show as Gene took second place and Joe Reed finished third in the field.

 

Tim Hancock was on his A-game once again as he took control of his heat race and then ran off with the Neal Tire & Auto Pro Modified feature. For Hancock, he has taken the checkered flag in three of the first four events during the 2019 season.

 

Wrapping up the show Saturday night was the Hornets. A new winner took to the winner's circle in Anthony Sunshine, a driver from St. Louis, Missouri. Sunshine's home track has been flooded out due to much of the spring rains so a trip north to Macon gave him plenty of competition and a chance to race. Brady Reed, starting tenth due to winning the last Hornet feature, rushed towards the front and challenged for the top spot. Another Missouri driver, Joshua Hawkins from Imperial, finished in third during his first trip to the track in 2019.

 

Among the six racing classes was another solid night of cars in the pit area, 90, so Macon Speedway brings forth quality in numbers during all the classes so far during the first four weeks of the season. Macon Speedway takes a rare scheduled Saturday night off to prep for a monster week at the track beginning on Memorial Day Monday. The annual event, Miller Lite Beer Twin 50s, is on tap for the Decatur Building Trade Pro Late Models and the Neal Tire & Auto Pro Modifieds. A full stock car racing show is scheduled. Thursday, May 30th, is the second-ever 95Q Up On The Wheel Modified 100--a 100-lap feature for the BillingsleyRewards.com Modifieds plus the MOWA Sprints. The week is capped off with a fan-favorite, the Five Buck Night. General admission is just $5 plus it will be the kids bicycle giveaway night along with a full program.

Chasteen Takes Big Ten Super Late Model Opener At Lincoln Speedway

 

(Lincoln, IL) A talented field of Midwest Big Ten Super Late Model drivers gathered at Lincoln Speedway, in Lincoln, IL this past Friday, May 17 for their opening race of the 2019 season.  For Lincoln Speedway, it was the fourth race of the season and the first of two this year which will feature the high powered racecars.

 

2018 Summer Nationals champion, Brian Shirley, of Chatham, IL, was the favorite coming into the night.  He didn’t disappoint in qualifying, setting quick time over local favorite Myles Moos, former Big Ten champion Brian Diveley, Ryan Unzicker, and Mike Chasteen, Jr.  Heat race action saw Shirley and Unzicker claim the wins.

 

When it came time for the feature, Shirley and Unzicker led the field to green.  Shirley raced out, while Unzicker tried to make a go of it in the outside lane.  The car to watch, though, was one that pulled in on an open trailer earlier in the night.  It was also one running pump gas for his steel headed engine.  It was the #2 car of Mike Chasteen, Jr.  The Peoria, IL driver was hooked up on the bottom lane of the dry-slick track and raced past Unzicker before putting Shirley behind him as well.  The race went green until lap 19 before the first yellow waved, bunching the field.  Back to racing for the final six laps, Chasteen again made easy work of the field to claim the impressive victory.  Unzicker, Shirley, Jose Parga, and Diveley completed the top five. 

 

In the DIRTcar Modified class, Mike Brooks and Steven Brooks brought the field to green.  As always, the field was full of talented drivers and a win would be tough to come by.  Steven Brooks took the early lead, while track regular, Austin Lynn, was working hard behind him.  Lynn pulled alongside and took the top spot as drivers raced side-by-side on the low lanes of the track, looking for grip.  The major challenge for Austin Lynn came from Donovan Lodge.  The Andover, IL driver pulled into second from his fourth starting spot and gave it a valiant effort.  In fact, Lodge made a pass relatively late in the race.  Lynn would not be denied, however, as he pulled back alongside in the next turn and took the top spot back.  From that point on it was Lynn holding the advantage.  Coming to the checkered, Lodge got a great run off of turn four and pulled almost even with Lynn at the line.  For Lynn, the key word was almost, as he hung on for the strong victory.  Following the Mason City, IL driver were Lodge, Tommy Sheppard, Jr. who picked up six spots to take third, Steven Brooks, and Kenny Wallace

 

The DIRTcar Street Stocks were the first feature of the night and they didn’t disappoint with some really good racing.  Rudy Zaragoza led for a good while at the front of the pack as Terry Reed and Robert Cottom were right behind.  Unfortunately for Reed, on one of his pass attempts, some very slight contact ensued, which cut down his right front tire.  Reed was forced to pit for a tire change and restart from the tail.  Meanwhile, Cottom was able to take the lead in the middle portion of the race, making a run to the inside of Zaragoza.  As the laps wound down, Cottom stayed out front but everyone watched as the #5 of Reed worked from the back to take second.  Following Cottom and Reed were Zaragoza, Braden Bilger, and Nolan Kaufman.

 

Lincoln, IL driver Bret Tripplett led the early laps of the Nutech Seed DII Midget feature before Mason City, IL’s Andy Baugh drove to the inside.  Baugh got traction on the exit of turn two and rocketed past going down the backstretch.  For Baugh, it was pretty easy sailing from that point on, for his third feature win in four tries this year.  Tripplett, Tyler Roth, Jeff Sparks, and Karter Sarff rounded out the top five.  No one took the Nutech Seed Front Row Challenge so the bonus goes to $400 at the next race.

 

The final race of the night was the DIRTcar Hornet feature and it was another good one.  The division has been very competitive this year with a number of driver threatening for a victory.  This time it was Pekin, IL’s Danny Oates laying claim to the feature trophy.  Oates held off a charging David Lauritson, Brady Reed, Dallas Strauch, and Eric Vanapeldoorn.  The Hornets will be racing for $1,000 to win in the Ed Cain Trucking Hornet Challenge at the June 7 event.  It’s part of a weekend doubleheader which will also see $1,000 on the line Saturday, June 8 at Macon Speedway.

 

Also on track Friday night were the Abe Lincoln Quarter Midget Association kids.  Nearly 20 different youngsters brought their quarter midgets out to the track to show off their rides and take some laps at intermission.

 

For Lincoln Speedway, it will be a few weeks before the next race on Friday, June 7.  In addition to the $1,000 to win Hornet race, the Pro Late Models will be back with Modifieds, Nutech Seed DII Midgets, and KidModz.  It will be a busy month of June for the track as the POWRi Midgets invade for Speedweek on Sunday, June 16 followed by the Graue Chevrolet Showdown for the Summer Nationals on Sunday, June 30.

Haudenschild gets late race Attica AFCS win; Drown and Ivy notch 2nd victories of year in late models and 305 AFCS sprints

 

 

By Brian Liskai

 

ATTICA, Ohio - It was patented Jac Haudenschild. The National Hall of Fame inductee from Wooster, Ohio, utilized Attica Raceway Park's extreme high line to pass Joey Saldana coming to the white flag of the 410 sprint feature Friday and went on to score his third career victory at the track on American Powersports/AmeriGas Night.

 

The victory was worth $4,000 for Haudenschild on an All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series (AFCS) Presented by the Baumann Auto Group point night.

 

Not to be outdone, the Summit Racing Equipment UMP Late Models saw a tremendous battle between Wooster, Ohio's Doug Drown and McClure, Ohio's Rusty Schlenk - who ironically came into the night tied with 25 career Attica wins to sit atop the division all-time victory mark. The duo raced side by side, slicing through lapped traffic the final five laps with Drown prevailing for his second win of the year and the 26th of his career at Attica on an Attica/Wayne County Speedway Challenge Series point night.

 

To finish out the exciting night, Fremont, Ohio's John Ivy used the low groove to get around race-long leader Jimmy McGrath with just four laps to go to score his second Fremont Fence 305 Sprint feature win and the $1,000 Gressman Powersports check. It was Ivy's 17th career 305 victory at Attica putting him seventh on the division's all-time victory list. It was also a valuable point night for Ivy in the chase for the KS Sales & Service AFCS Presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales title.

 

Haudenschild grabbed the early lead of the Callie's Performance Products 410 Sprint A-main, battling early with Buddy Kofoid who took the point on lap six. Kofoid seemed to have things in hand as Craig Mintz and Saldana battled with Haudenschild. Kofoid suffered some sort of issue with eight laps to go, dropping to fourth as Saldana inherited the lead over Mintz and Haudenschild right before the caution flew. Saldana, Mintz and Haudenschild battled for the lead with "The Wild Child" driving into second with four laps to go and blasted around Saldana exiting turn four coming to the white flag and driving to the close win.

 

"Joey and Craig and Buddy got me pretty good there at the start...I was searching around a little bit because when you start on the front row I didn't really know where to run for sure. I had to get up on the cushion and go there at the end. Zach (Ames) had the car pretty good. We are a little loose in the heat but Zach worked on it and had the car really good any where on the track," said Haudenschild beside his Finzer Farms/Ron Jacobs Trucking/Performance Foot & Ankle/Triple X Racing backed #3.

 

Pole sitter Mike Bores jumped to the early lead of the 25 lap late model feature but faced constant pressure from Devin Shiels. Meanwhile eighth starter Drown worked his way to third by lap seven and after a great few lap battle with Shiels moved into second and drove around Bores on lap 13 to take the lead. Meanwhile Schlenk, who started 11th, worked his way into third with nine laps remaining and took second from Bores a lap later. When the five to go signal was given Drown and Schlenk were mired in heavy lapped traffic as the pair raced door to door trying to maneuver around lapped cars. As they crossed the white flag they were side by side with lapped cars all around. Drown would hold off Schlenk for the win.

 

"That's what everybody wants to see...Rusty and myself battling like it's been for many many times here. That's why I wasn't getting off the top. I knew if anyone was going to run up there and be able to peddle the car he would be the one. The lapped cars were kind of my blockers. I have to thank Ely Road Reel, BAR Farms, 89 Homes, Wooster Blass, Chubb Frank Racing for giving us this machine, Cody for building the car and working on it every week, my wife for her support, my dad, my uncle, Steve or tire guy and Hoosier Racing Tire, AccuForce and everyone who helps out on this car," Drown said.

 

McGrath led the first 21 of the 25 lap 305 feature while seventh starter Ivy steadily moved his way tot he front, taking second on lap 10. A red for last week's winner Kyle Capodice who tipped over with eight laps to go put Ivy right on McGrath's rear bumper. McGrath got a great restart and looked like he might be on his way to his first career sprint win, but the veteran Ivy methodically ate away at the lead and drove off the bottom of turn four on lap 22 to take the lead and drove to the win.

 

"I'm glad we had that red flag there...I was sucking wind pretty bad," said Ivy who also drove in the 410 sprint feature. "This thing wouldn't take off real good on the restart. I just tried to bide my time and settle down and make sure I made my right move. I have to thank all my guys. I made it hard on them tonight going back and forth to the 410 car and they do it all the time for me," said Ivy beside his L&R Farms/C&N Supply/Rohr Lawncare/Sonny's Welding & Machine/Welty Financial Services/Atkinson Farms/Story Equipment backed #77i

 

Haudenschild and Kofoid brought the field to green for the 25 lap 410 sprint feature but before a lap could be completed Caleb Griffith stopped necessitating a complete restart. When the green flew again Haudenschild gained the advantage over Kofoid, Chris Andrews, Ivy, Mintz, Saldana, Tony Stewart and DJ Foos.  Kofoid continued to pressure Haudenschild while Mintz drove into third. Kofoid took the lead on lap six with a slider in turn one. Kofoid began to pull away slightly as Haudenschild had his hands full with Mintz, Saldana, Andrews, Ivy, Stewart and Greg Wilson who had charged from 18th.

 

Kofoid encountered lapped traffic by lap 11 with Haudenschild, Mintz and Saldana battling for second with Mintz taking the spot on lap 14. Saldana slipped by Haudenschild for third on lap 17 as heavy lapped traffic appeared. With 10 laps to go Kofoid was still in command while Saldana got around Mintz for second. Something appeared to happen to Kofoid in turn four with eight laps to go as he slowed dramatically, handing the lead to Saldana as Mintz and Haudenschild also got around the California driver.

 

Other than the initial start, the feature's only caution flew for a Skylar Gee spin with seven laps to go. On the restart Mintz pressured Saldana with Haudenschild joining the fun a lap later. Haudenschild drove around Mintz on lap 26 and quickly close don Saldana. Haudenschild rocked off the high side of turn four coming to the white flag and went on to take the win over Saldana, Kofoid, Mintz and Andrews.

 

"We had a really really good car. I had a terrible start and fell back and I just kept with it and kept with it. The top wasn't cleaned off  early and right there at the end I saw the top cleaned and I was like 'oh shit Haud.' If anyone's going to try it he's going to and look, it paid off and he won. If they don't have the yellow I think we win the race. We had a car good enough because we could move through traffic really really good and they couldn't get through traffic as good as me. At the end...that's called experience..Haud knows what to do. You only have one shot and it worked and I lost," said Saldana.

 

Bores and Shiels brought the field to green for the 25 lap late model feature with Bores, who already has a win this season, holding off Shiels for the lead with Larry Bellman, Matt Irey and Drown locked in a torrid battle for third.A quick caution on lap four saw the running order Bores, Shiels, Irey, Drown, Bellman, last week's winner Ryan Missler, Steve Kester and Schlenk.Bores began to pull away when the green came back out while Shiels was trying to fend off Drown and Irey. Drown took the runner-up position on lap 10 and quickly closed on Bores.

 

Bores was glued to the bottom and Drown used the high line to take the lead on lap 13 but Bores and Shiels didn't give up, challenging over the next couple of laps. Meanwhile Schlenk had moved into fourth. With nine laps to go it was a great four car battle up front with Drown leading Bores, Shiels and Schlenk. With five laps to go a lapped car held up Drown and Schlenk took the lead but a circuit later Drown regained the top spot. Drown and Schlenk raced side by side in traffic the remaining four laps with Drown getting the narrow win over Schlenk, Shiels, Bores and Missler.

 

McGrath and Shawn Valenti brought the field to green for the 25 lap 305 sprint A-main with McGrath getting the top spot over Valenti, Matt Lucius, Dustin Rall, Tyler Street, Ivy and Luke Griffith. McGrath and Valenti raced side by side over the next hand full of laps before McGrath started to pull away. Meanwhile Lucius, Rall, Street and Ivy were battling hard for third when the caution flew on lap nine. On the restart Ivy took second and started to close on McGrath.

 

Last week's winner Kyle Capodice and Rall tangled with eight laps to go. When the green flew McGrath got an excellent restart and pulled away slightly from Ivy with Valenti, Street, Bobby Clark, Lucius, Paul Weaver, Griffith and Jamie Miller giving chase. McGrath and Ivy ran side by side over the next few laps until Ivy utilized the bottom groove to take the lead on lap 22. Ivy drove to the win over McGrath, Valenti, Street and Weaver.

The DCRP Title Chases at the Quarter Pole

 

Lonnie Wheatley, DODGE CITY, Kan. (May 17, 2019) – Approximately one-quarter through the 2019 championship chase season at Dodge City Raceway Park, a handful of drivers hold the early lead in pursuit of the hardware.

 

And, of those five leaders, none are reigning champions although three have captured a DCRP track championship in the past.

 

Saturday night offers up the fourth round of action for all five divisions including the Precise Racing Products DRP Sprint Cars, IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sport Modifieds, IMCA Stock Cars and IMCA Hobby Stocks.  The event that his headlined by the DCRP vs. URSS Sprint Car Clash goes green at 7:30 p.m.

 

Leading the way into Saturday’s action in their respective classes are Luke Cranston (DCRP Sprint Cars), Clay Sellard (IMCA Modifieds), Dakota Sproul (IMCA Sport Modifieds), Angel Munoz (IMCA Stock Cars) and Cody Ghumm (IMCA Hobby Stocks).  Cranston, Sellard and Munoz have each captured DCRP track championships in the past.

 

Adult admission for Saturday’s card is only $15 with children 11 and under admitted free when accompanied by an adult.  It kicks off a weekend double that also includes the Round Two 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:

Will Bristle Prevails in Legends Shootout

PELETIER, NC – Will Bristle survived a series of late race restarts to pick up the victory in Saturday night’s Legends Short Track Shootout at Bobby Watson’s Carteret County Speedway.

 

Zach Miller, who won a race at Carteret County Speedway earlier this year, led in the early laps of the 35-lap, $2,500-to-win feature.  Bristle was able to make the move, from the fourth starting position, to take the lead inside the first 15 laps and led from there out.  It was not easy for Bristle, however, as he had to survive challenges from Miller, Spencer Saunders, Daniel Silvestri and others in a series of late race restarts.

 

After the race, Bristle said he considered this to be the biggest win of his career.

 

“Oh man, I’ve got to thank Dillon Spain Motorsports for building this piece for me,” Bristle said.  “We work extremely hard on our stuff to make it this fast.  It’s really showing.  I’ve got to thank all these guys for racing me clean there except for trying to run over me that one time.  I’ve just got to thank everyone that’s involved.  It’s a huge win.  I think we’re ready for the Nationals.”

 

Preparing for the Legends Asphalt Nationals, which will take place at Carteret County Speedway from October 17th through October 19th, was the main goal for Bristle and the 37 other cars in the event.

 

“This is the closest race to what compares to what the Nationals are going to be in October,” Bristle remarked.  “Really stiff competition. Just a fun race overall. Came from fourth to the front and never looked back.”

 

Virginia driver Spencer Saunders finished in the second position for the second straight race at Carteret County Speedway.  Despite coming up just short of a $2,500 payday, Saunders was ecstatic with the result.

 

“This one feels pretty good,” Saunders commented.  “We had a good night tonight.  Second place is a good run for us.  This means a lot more than a couple weeks ago the first time here.  Felt like we had a car to win, we just got to beating and banging there on those restarts.  That’s just how it goes.  When you’re stuck on the outside, you’re pretty much done.”

 

Zach Miller finished third while pole sitter Daniel Silvestri came in fourth and Caleb Heady rounded out the top-five.

 

Nick Woodall picked up the win in the Consolation feature, while Bryson Ruff and Brenton Irving scored heat race victories.

 

Chris Burns and James Horner swapped the lead back and forth throughout the duration of the Street Stock feature, but when the checkered flag waved, it was Burns picking up the win – his third consecutive victory in the Street Stock division at Carteret County Speedway.

 

Kris Hetu was able to capitalize on Brandon Clements’ misfortunes to score the victory in the Mini-Stock feature.  Clements had dominated during the early stages of the race, but a mechanical problem sidelined him, allowing Hetu to take the win over Stephen Sanders and Gary Murphy.

 

Steve Sullivan scored the victory in U-CAR competition with a last lap pass while Andrew Jackson and Curtis Lanier rounded out the top-three.  Sean Wales prevailed in a Champ Kart photofinish, while Justin Hall and Morgan Odum picked up victories in the Coastal Carolina Mini Cup Series Senior and Junior Mini Cup features.

 

Racing will return to Carteret County Speedway on Sunday, May 26th with the Memorial Classic, headlined by Limited Late Model racing and the Southern Ground Pounders Vintage Racing Club.

VRSEK NOTCHES 1ST EVER FLAT ROCK WIN

 
Flat Rock, MI-May 11, 2019: Carleton, MI driver Jeff Vrsek led every lap on his way to his first-ever win in the 50 lap ARCA Moran Chevrolet Late Model feature Saturday night at Flat Rock Speedway. Dennis Whisman, Nick Shanks and LJ Farmer also visited the Monroe Asphalt Winner's Circle on ArborOakland Group Night. Debbie Majchrzak, representing ArborOakland, presented the trophies to the winners.
 
The Late Model feature ran straight green flag, allowing Vrsek to take control at the start and build up a sizable lead. Moran Chevy fast qualifier Harold Fair Jr. (11:460), starting 5th, reeled in Jeff in the final 10 laps but to no avail. Vrsek zipped along to the big victory over Fair Jr., Steve Cronenwett Jr., Paul Pelletier, Dennis Strickland, Stan Yee Jr., Frank Jiovani, Chris Benson, Connor Zbozien, Dennis Rederstorf, Craig Everage, Hayden Sprague, Jeff Metdepenningen and Dan Trosen Jr. Heat winners were Strickland and Trosen Jr.
 
Make it 2 for 2 for Dennis Whisman as he grabbed the win in the 20 lap ARCA Victory Lane Quick Oil Change Figure 8 feature race. The entire distance was filled with spins, fender-banging and near-misses at the intersection. Ethen Lambert led the first 6 laps until Jacob Lee took the point. That was short-lived, as Whisman motored by on lap 10 and held the field at bay for the "W". Dennis Whisman Jr. made a late-race charge to take second to his father, Lee held on for third, with James Vanderhoof, John Lambert, Dave Lambert, Ethen Lambert, Stephanie Bradley and Joe Vandehoof next in line at the stripe. Whisman Jr. set fast time at 21:020. John Lambert took the heat race win.
 
Nick Shanks withstood challenge after challenge on several re-starts as he claimed top honors in the 25 lap ARCA DTS Drive Train Specialists Street Stock A Main. The yellow flag was displayed way too many times due to on-track multi-car incidents. Ethan Stadniczuk made several bids for the lead on the cold night, using the outside lane. Rob Randa also took a shot at the top spot but Shanks stayed strong in the low groove to take the win.

Missler defends home sturf to nab American Ethanol Late Model Series win
 

 
By Brian Liskai
 
ATTICA, Ohio - Ryan Missler defended the home turf Friday, May 10 at Attica Raceway Park. The Bellevue, Ohio driver - a five time Attica track champion - scored the biggest win of his career, besting the American Ethanol Late Model Tour to nab the $4,000 payday in the Buckeye 40 on Stillwater Metal/Bazell Race Fuels Night.
 
Missler battled with Doug Drown early in the 40-lap affair and then had to deal with Greg Satterlee as well later on. With 14 laps to go, Missler used lapped cars to his advantage and charged from third to first and drove to his 14th career victory at Attica, placing him in a three way tie for third on the track's all-time win list for the UMP late models.
 
"After the restart (on lap 13) I thought oh crap the car isn't firing the way it was before. But as the laps went on the car kept getting better and better and better and I was so comfortable in that thing...it was awesome. The car just picked where it wanted to go and it was good any where I wanted to put it. I have to thank all my guys. Matt Carmody for putting this thing together...it's his birthday and his wife's birthday on the same day...how about that for a present? This is the biggest race I've ever won. We've only ever won a $2,000 to win race. We defended our home turf," said Missler beside his Handy Grafix, Rick Delong Racecars, Keizer Wheels, Wilson's Barber Shop, NAPA of Bryan, King Industrial Supply, Terry McConnel Excavating, Accuforce Shocks, 3D Racing, Missler Sweets backed #50.
 
Indiana, Pennsylvania's Satterlee would hold off Drown for the runner-up finish, though blaming himself for "making too many mistakes."
 
"Drown and Missler were both really good. I just made too many mistakes. Drown pushed off the corner there once and needed to take advantage and had made a bad corner myself and I let him get back by me. I got to where I was hanging at the end and just couldn't go near as hard as I could the first 25 laps. It's a step in the right direction. We haven't had a real good season so far. It was a lot of fun and and an awesome race track tonight," said Satterlee.
 
Drown, from nearby Wooster, Ohio, came home third. "I just cruised too long. I was looking over my shoulder and saw them and they were down on the bottom and normally on the bottom you will wear out a tire so I was just cruising. Ryan had a good car and could manuever anywhere," said Drown.
 
Sandusky, Ohio's Kyle Capodice was in the right place at the right time to capitalize when early race contenders suffered mechanical woes in the Fremont Fence 305 sprint feature. For much of the 25 laps main event it looked like the race woud come down to Jamie Miller or Kyle Peters but first Peters retired with mechanical problems and then Miller suffered the same fate with just six laps remaining and Capodice drove to the win, the fourth of his career at Attica.
 
"We were better on the long runs and I just really wanted to win. We went through a drought last year and I can't thank Franlin Sanitation, Greber Racing Components, Barnes Nursery, Fred Wolf, Rob Butts and Lynette Lawless, Burns Electric, my fiancee Kylie, my Dad and Tyler Crump who isn't here tonight because he just became a dad," said Capodice.
 
Fostoria, Ohio's Shawn Valenti knows a great race vehicle when he drives one and his dirt truck was unstoppable at Attica as he drove to a dominating feature win, the 16th of his career in the division at the track.
 
"This truck has 50 some wins. I'm not sure what makes it so good. It's unbelieveable it's able to keep doing what it's doing," said Valenti beside his Best Performance Motorsports, A Plus Auto Center, Craig Miller Trucking, KS Sales & Service, Gressman Powersports backed #7B.
 
Drown and Missler brougth the field to green for the 40 laps American Ethanol Late Model Tour main event with Drown gaining the advantage over Missler, Steve Kester, Zach Dohm, David Mielke, Ryan Markham and Devin Shiels. While Drown and Missler pulled away, a tremendous battle ensued involving Kester, Shiels and Dohm. Shiels was able to take the third spot on lap four and closed on Drown and Missler while Dohm now had his hands full with Satterlee.
 
Just as Drown was struggling to put several cars a lap down, the only caution of the feature fly for a Chad Finley spin on lap 13 just after Satterlee had worked his way into third. On the restart, Drown, Missler and Satterlee had the crowd on their feet as the trio put on a whale of a show. Satterlee was able to take second a lap later but Missler continued to apply pressure. Things settled down somewhat over the next hand full of laps as Drown, Satterlee and Missler ran nose to tail with Shiels locked in a battle with Markham for fourth. However, at the half-way point Satterlee began applying pressure to Drown with Missler closing five laps later.
 
As the leaders raced into lapped traffic, Missler made his move, driving around both Satterlee and Drown to take the lead exiting turn two. Missler was able to drive any where on the racing surface and pulled away as Satterlee and Drown battled  for second with Shiels and defending AELMT champion Brandon Thirlby who had stormed from his 11th starting spot, battling for fourth. As the white flag flew Missler had only a one car length advantage as Satterlee, Drown and Thirlby battled hard for second. Missler got through traffic and took the win over Satterlee, Drown, Thirlby and Shiels.
 
In the 25 lap 305 sprint A-main opening night winner Kyle Peters and former track champion Jamie Miller brought the field to green with Miller and Peters quickly establishing themselves as the cars to beet with Capodice battling with John Ivy and Paul Weaver for third. A caution flew when Kevin Mingus and Shawn Valenti came to a stop on the speedway on lap four. When the green flew Miller pulled away slightly from Peters with Capodice holding the advantage over Weaver, Ivy and Tyler Street for third. Jerry Dahms tipped over on lap 10 just as the leaders were racing into lapped traffic.
 
When the green flew again Miller used the clean air to pull away as Peters drove into the infield with mechanical issues handing second to Capodice as Street moved into third. Miller found lapped traffic with eight laps to go but seemed headed to the win. But disaster struck for Miller on lap 19 as he pulled to the pits putting Capodice into the lead. Capodice hit his marks perfectly to take the win over a closing Street with Weaver, Ivy and Brandon Moore rounding out the top five.
 
The 15 lap dirt truck feature saw outside front row starter Cory McCaughey jump into the early lead with Valenti, Brad Stuckey and Jimmy McGrath Jr. staying close. Valenti drove to the outside of McCaughey to take the lead on lap three and the only thing that slowed his march to victory lane was a couple of cautions with three laps to go. While Valenti drove away, the battle for second was very entertaining the entire feature involving McCaughey, McGrath, Stuckey and John Brooks. When the dust settled Valenti had the win with McCaughey earning second over Brooks, McGrath and Stuckey.
 
Attica Raceway Park will be back in action Friday, May 17 for the Eric Phillips 31st Anniversary Classic presented by American Powersports of Findlay and Sandusky and AmeriGas. The Kistler Racing Products/All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads Attica Fremont Championship Series Presented by the Baumann Auto Group for the 410 sprints will pay $4,000 to win while the KS Sales & Service AFCS Presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales for the 305 sprints will pay $1,000 to win thanks to Gressman Powersports.

WATT, HILL & WILLS CAPTURE FIRST WINS OF 2019

 

 
The first night of the 2019 points at the Bridgeport Speedway produced three new winners for the new season as Ryan Watt, Travis Hill and Tom Wills, Jr. picked up their first wins of 2019 on Massari & Sons Disposal Service night at the Bridgeport Speedway.  
 

 
Massari & Sons Disposal Service sponsored their first event at the Bridgeport Speedway.  For over sixty years, the Massari Family has provided the community with trash disposal, recylcing and curb side pick-up for commercial and residential properties.  They are a local family owned and operated business.  Interested parties may contact Massari & Sons for a quote.

 
Matt Stangle led the first 24 2/3 laps of the twenty-five lap Spirit Auto Center Big Block Modifieds feature event.  After taking the lead on the original start, Stangle was able to pull away from the field.  Watt moved into second on lap fifteen but Stangle was long gone at that point as he raced through lapped traffic.  

 
Watt had closed in on Stangle in the final laps but the young racer had his Ace Materials No. 6 out in front by several car lengths as he took the white flag.  Stangle went into turn three with the lead and dropped to the inside.  Watt took the Roberts Racing No. 14w to the outside and raced into the lead through the corners, leading Stangle to the checkered flag for the win.  "You don't want to try to run down the leader here," Watt explained.  "You hope for a caution."  Watt was surprised when Stangle went to the inside on the final lap.  "I hate to leave the bottom open for someone to get a run and slide up into you," Stangle explained.  

 
Tommy Beamer trailed Watt and Stangle to the finish line for third with the Thornton Gulf No. 31.  Richie Pratt, Jr. raced to a fourth place finish with the Danny's Pizza Pizazz No. 51 with Small Block power under the hood.  Dominick Buffalino made his first start of the season behind the wheel of the Horton No. 76, driving to a fifth place finish.

 
Ryan Anderson, Neal Williams, Ron Roberts, Jim Britt and Brett Ballard rounded out the top ten.

 
Travis Hill visited Victory Lane for the first time since April of 2017 when he drove Brett Cogdill's No. 98H for the win in the South Jersey Overhead Door 602 Crate Sportsman main event.  Hill's last win came with Cogdill's No. 98.

 
Hill is second on the All Time Feature Winner's list in this division - second behind Richie Pratt, Jr.  The win gave Hill his thirty-second Crate Sportsman win.

 
Hill led from the green flag to the checkered and was able to hold off Jim Gallagher, Jr. who challenged for the lead on several occasions.  Gallagher finished second ahead of Eric Kormann.  Wayne Weaver's late race charge gave him a fourth place finish ahead of Matt Peck.  It was Gallagher's third top three finish in the first three events of the season.

 
Tom Sherby, Rich Wenger, Bobby Bracall, John Micek and Kyle Belmont finished in sixth through tenth in the first point race of the season.

 
The South Jersey Overhead Door feature event marked the first time that all three sons of Andy Belmont - Andrew, Kyle and Brett - raced together in the same event.  Kyle made a quick trip from Dover and his Penske racing team job to race with his brothers on Saturday night.  Kyle took home the bragging rights with his tenth place finish.  

 
2017 Outlaw Stock Champion, Tom Wills, Jr. took home his first win of the season in the Sunbelt Rentals Outlaw Stock feature event.  Lee Allen led the way through the first ten laps of the race as Wills and Rich Stinson, Jr. raced into second and third.  Wills pressed Allen in turn two on lap eleven and then took the lead one lap later, racing to the inside as the cars headed down the backstretch.  Stinson also made his way by Allen.

 
Wills took the win over Stinson, Allen, Brian Ludwig and Mike Creamer.

 
Justin Moench took the win in the first race of the season for the DA's Auto Body & Repair Rookies, leading all eight laps.  Moench was behind the wheel of the Wenger No. 304.  Scott Maher, Jr. closed in on the leader but was not able to mount a challenge.

Bubba Pollard Holds Off Rich Bickle Jr. to Win Joe Shear Classic at Madison

Full Event Results

Senoia, Georgia, is a long way from Oregon, Wisconsin.  In fact, it’s nearly a 900 mile trip.  So when Bubba Pollard decided to make the journey north to race with the best in the Midwest, he made it more than worthwhile as he picked up the win in the 11thannual ARCA Midwest Tour Joe Shear Classic and a $10,000 check. 
 
Twenty-seven of the best took to Wisconsin’s Fastest Half-Mile today as part of an event that honored one of the greatest short track legends, Joe Shear. Shear won four championships at Madison and sixty-six feature wins on the half-mile that celebrates it’s 50thbirthday this season.
 
Ricky Baker and John DeAngelis Jr. had the honors of bringing this stellar field to the green flag.  DeAngelis Jr. wasted no time as he jumped out to the lead with last year’s winner Austin Nason and Dan Fredrickson up to second and third followed by Pollard and Paul Shafer Jr. 
 
On lap 10 Gabe Sommers passed Shafer Jr. to break into the top five. Rich Bickle Jr. moved into sixth on lap 16 when he worked his way around Shafer Jr.  On lap 18 Pollard powered his way past Fredrickson for the third spot with Ty Majeski taking the seventh spot from Shafer Jr. one lap later.  Five laps later Majeski would wrestle sixth away from Bickle Jr. 
 
Majeski continued his move forward when he passed Sommers for fifth on lap 30. On lap 33 he moved inside of Fredrickson to take over the fourth position.  Majeski and Pollard then battled it out for third as the leaders continued to work their way around lapped traffic.  On lap 45 Majeski took advantage of the slower traffic to work his way past Pollard for third.
 
Out front DeAngelis Jr. continued to lead Nason by two car lengths with Majeski a distant third.
 
The first caution flag came out on lap 53 when Shafer Jr. spun on the backstretch.  This meant the first opportunity for controlled pit stops.  Most of the cars electing to pit were in the back half of the field with Fredrickson and Bickle Jr. the only top ten cars at the time of the caution to pit.
 
For the restart on lap 61, DeAngelis Jr. chose to start on the outside with Nason taking the inside of the first row.  Majeski lined up outside and Pollard inside of row two.  It was a good start for Nason who jumped out to the lead over DeAngelis Jr. 
 
Major trouble happened two laps later when Majeski experienced axle issues on the backstretch that ended his run and led to a multiple car pile-up in turn three involving Dan Fredrickson, Gabe Sommers, Rich Bickle Jr., John Beale,  Carson Kvapil,  and Jeff Van Oudenhoven.  Only Bickle Jr.and Beale were able to continue.
 
This time for the restart Nason chose the outside with DeAngelis Jr. on the inside.  Nason retained his lead with Jacob Goede, Ryan Farrell, DeAngelis Jr., and Casey Johnson making up the top five.
 
On lap 74 Goede looked to the inside of Nason but was unable to make the pass.  Four laps later Goede and Nason made contact coming out of turn one causing Nason’s car to spin and bringing out the caution flag.  For their roles in the incident, both Goede and Nason would go to the tail end of the lead lap cars.
 
For the restart Casey Johnson started on the inside of DeAngelis Jr. with Farrell in third Andrew Morrissey in fourth and Jason Weinkauf in fifth. DeAngelis Jr. was able to jumpe back out in front before the caution flag came out for a spin on lap 93.
 
This caution flag resulted in nearly everyone coming into the pits for “the stop” as the drivers were preparing for the final 100 laps.
 
Once again DeAngelis Jr. chose the outside for the restart with Johnson on the inside followed by Morrissey and Farrell in the second row. This time Johnson would gain the advantage and take the point.  DeAngelis Jr. was able to wrestle back the lead from Johnson on lap 113 while Austin Nason, Jacob Goede, and Andrew Morrissey were third through fifth. DeAngelis Jr. appeared to be getting stronger with each lap as he settled in out front.
 
A spin in turn two on lap 129 brought out the caution and took away some of the advantage DeAngelis Jr. had built over Johnson and the rest of the field.
 
When the green flag waved again there would be ten cars still on the lead lap.  DeAngelis Jr. jumped back out to the lead followed by Johnson and Nason.  However, the man on the move was Pollard who was up to challenge both Johnson and Nason.  Nason would take second from Johnson with Pollard moving up to third and then overtaking Nason for second on lap 143.  Despite being in the earlier pile up in turn three, Rich Bickle Jr. worked his way up to fourth ahead of Johnson 
before the caution flag came out on lap 147 when the car of Ricky Baker experienced mechanical issues.
 
The front row coming to the green would be Pollard on the inside with DeAngelis Jr. on the outside.  DeAngelis Jr. took the lead back for a lap before Pollard motored by to take over the top spot on lap 159.  Bickle Jr. was moving up fast as he took the second spot and began to chase down the leader. 
 
Pollard and Bickle Jr. separated themselves from the rest of the field while Nason, Murgic, and Johnson were battling for third.
 
With twenty-five laps to go Pollard’s lead was 1.4 seconds over Bickle Jr. With ten laps to go Pollard had increased his lead to more than two seconds. Despite Bickle’s best efforts, he wouldn’t be able to catch Pollard who cruised to victory lane. Nason, Johnson, and Nick Murgic rounded out the top five.
 
“This means a lot,” said Pollard.  “I’ve been wanting to win up here and I have a lot of respect for these guys in the Midwest Tour.  I have a lot of respect for the great fans up here too.  These are hard-working racers and you don’t find that too much anymore so that’s why I like coming up here to race”
 
“We made a change after qualifying and it was game on,” added Pollard. “We decided to take our tires late and it paid off.”
 
“I wanted to win this race for Joe.  We raced together for 100 laps here back in 1985 with him right on my bumper. I’m probably the only one who raced with Joe who’s racing here today,” said runner-up Bickle Jr.  “I just want everyone to know ‘I’m back.’
 
Casey Johnson set fast time with a lap of 17.472.  Jacob Goede (17.501), Ty Majeski (17.530), Rich Bickle Jr. (17.538), and Ryan Farrell (17.549) rounded out the top five.

 

Kyle Pfeifer Wins Stock Car Shootout at DCRP with Richardson, Money, Burger and Burkhart Also Victorious

Lonnie Wheatley, DODGE CITY, Kan. (May 4, 2019) – Saturday night’s Stock Car Shootout presented by Winner’s Circle Feedyards and Factory Direct Fireworks atop the 3/8-mile Dodge City Raceway Park clay oval lived up to its moniker with Hill City’s Kyle Pfeifer battling past Jason Rogers in the closing rounds of the 25-lapper to pocket the $1,000 winner’s share for IMCA Stock Cars.

While Pfeifer topped the Stock Car Shootout, other Saturday night winners included Steve Richardson in Precise Racing Products DCRP Sprint Cars, Clay Money in IMCA Modifieds, Travis Burger in IMCA Sport Modifieds and Tathan Burkhart in IMCA Hobby Stocks.

Pfeifer had his work cut out for him the in the 25-lap Stock Car Shootout, gridding the feature field 12th Tyler Walker and Mark Zorn led the way to the green flag.

Walker gunned into the early lead and paced the initial eight circuits before surrendering the point to eighth-starter Jason Rogers.   Rogers was busy fending off Angel Munoz over the ensuing circuits wile Pfeifer making his into the top five by the midway point.

Working the top side of the track, Pfeifer made his way to second by the 17th round and then began pressuring Rogers for the lead.  After battling side-by-side for several circuits, Pfeifer surged ahead on the 23rd lap and paced the final three circuits to secure the win.

After leading more than half the race, Rogers settled for second with Munoz filling out the podium in third.  Mike Petersilie crossed the stripe fourth after starting tenth with Will Bauer rounding out the top five.

In the Precise Racing Products DCRP Sprint Cars, defending track champion Steven Richardson led all but the first round in the 20-lapper to become the third different winner of the season in as many rounds.

Starting from the front row outside, the Liberal racer chased opening night winner Steven Richardson for the first lap before racing by on the top side of the track.

Richardson rode the rim flawlessly the rest of the way to secure the win aboard the Poor Boy Kustomz No. 0 Sprint Car.  Cranston tried to reel Richardson back in just past the midway point but was unable to fully eliminate the gap.

Cranston settled for second with Ty Williams in third.  Kris Moore cracked the top five on the eighth round and took command of fourth for keeps on the 11th lap.  Koby Walters outlasted Alexander Ort to round out the top five.

The feature was marred by a wild opening lap crash exiting turn two that eliminated a handful of cars.  Colorado’s Buddy Tubbs was transported to a local hospital with undisclosed injuries.

Penokee’s Clay Money became the first repeat winner in the IMCA Modified ranks by making a late move into the lead and then holding off a charging Daniel Gottschalk and Clay Sellard to top the 20-lapper.

While Money worked his way forward from the eighth starting position, Brandon Conkwright paced the initial 14 rounds from the pole position.

Money needed just seven laps to climb to third and then took second away from Jake Schroeder on the tenth.  And when Conkwright ran afoul of a pair of lapped cars on the 16th round, Money was there to cash in on the opportunity by racing into the lead.

A caution with just four laps to go put Conkwrigth and Sellard on Money’s rear bumper.  Sellard slipped around Conkwright while Gottschalk worked the high side to race past both of them only to fall just short of Money at the line.  Gottschalk’s charge was a rebound from an early race incident that sent him to the tail of the field

Sellard settled for third with Conkwright and Schroeder rounding out the top five.

Manhattan’s Travis Burger left little doubt about his first career IMCA Sport Modified feature win, gunning into the lead on the opening lap and leading all 20 rounds in convincing fashion.

While Burger streaked away from the pack, defending track champion Jeff Kaup made his way past Brian May for second on the eighth lap.  By that time though, Burger had opened up nearly straightaway worth of real estate between himself and Kaup.

Kaup closed to within eight car length but ran out of laps to chase down the fleet Burger.  Kaup and May rounded out the podium in second and third, respectively, with Dakota Sproul in fourth after wining the first two rounds of championship chase action.  Luke Stallbaumer rounded out the top five.

Hays’ Tathan Burkhart reeled off his second IMCA Hobby Stock feature win in as many 2019 tries by leading the final 13 rounds of the 15-lapper.

Burkhart battled past Devon Ghumm for the point on the third round and cruised the rest of the way to the checkered flag with Ghumm holding off Cody Ghumm for runner-up honors.  B.J. Rogers was fourth with Sheri Berger rounding out the top five.

 The 1/7-mile Little DCRP clay oval will be unveiled on Sunday, May 5, with a full slate of Micro Sprint Cars and Karts while the 3/8-mile Dodge City Raceway Park resumes action on Saturday, May 18, with URSS vs. DCRP Sprint Cars along with IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sport Modifieds, IMCA Stok Cars and IMCA Hobby Stocks.

Wallace, Ewing Rewrite Macon Record Books 

 

 By BZ
 

 

(Macon, IL) Kenny Wallace has his name all over Macon Speedway. He's a co-owner of the track with Ken Schrader, Tony Stewart and Bob Sargent. He's a multi-time feature winner in the BillingsleyRewards.com Modifieds class. Now, he can add "Fastest Qualifier" to the list. Wallace set the overall track record, which was broken two weeks ago during the last event at the track, with a time of 11.292. The previous mark was 11.387 which was set on April 20th by Rodney Standerfer. For Wallace, his night was just beginning.

 

Along with the fast time, Wallace also won his heat and got the front row starting spot in the 20-lap feature. Wallace got out to a lead and had to fend off fellow front row starter Robert Lee during the early and middle parts of the race. Wallace loosened up and Lee got aggressive during a late-race scenario and which caused the two machines to smack into one another. Lee's car was finished for the night and Wallace regained his lead and took hold of the checkered flag for a clean sweep.

 

That was not the only clean sweep of the evening. Warrensburg's Dakota Ewing also made history while driving in the Decatur Building Trades Pro Late Model division. He broke the two-year-old track record of 11.124 with a 10.793 lap. Add in a heat race win and he was lined up for a clean sweep, as well. Ewing was dominate on the bottom of the track as he glided his way through the turns and avoided any and all lapped traffic and coasted to the feature finish line. Jeff Reed, Jr. started opposite Ewing on the front row. A driver error led to a spin out and forced Reed to restart the race from the last place position. Within the final 19 laps, Reed made up position after position and took third place behind Braden Johnson.

 

An unbelievable field of cars turned out in the Neal Tire & Auto Pro Modified group. 40 cars were signed in for the night which led to five 8-car heat races as well as two 12-car B-Main feature events before the 20-lap A-Main feature event. Billy Knebel was rode up front and looked like it was his race to win. Unfortunately, a lapped car got between Knebel and second place car Owen Steinkoenig and led to a wreck. It led to Knebel wrecking and needing the assistance off the track by the tow truck. Steinkoenig assumed the lead and went the rest of the way to the checkered flag.

 

Gene Reed of Hammond once again found the winner's circle in the Archer's Alley Street Stocks. The former track champion did all he could to stop Darrell Dick, Larry Russell, Jr. and company from taking away his first place position. Reed was sharp and rode the track as perfectly as he could as he kept Dick away from the top spot. Russell lost power and pulled off the track from the third place position with one lap to go.

 

Dennis Vandermeersch made it two-for-two in the Sportsman division with feature wins. After running away from the group two weeks ago, Vandermeersch had a tough fight on his hands with Scott Landers. Landers, who rode the top groove most of the 15-lap feature, closed in on the leader, who stuck to the bottom, and as the race closed to a finish, Landers tried to duck low to get to Vandermeersch but couldn't get the traction and it allowed the leader to pull away and take the win.

 

Brady Reed once again proved to the fastest 4-cylinder Hornet out there as he ran away and hid during the final feature of the program.

 

As part of a special attraction, the Kid Modz were in the pits as well as on the track and White Heath driver Jeremy Sebens took off the 8-lap race and win.

 

122 total racecars flooded the pits. Flooded is a difficult word to use knowing how much rain has fallen in central Illinois over the past few days. Despite the grounds being damp and the track needing extra work during the races, there was plenty of sun and wind on Saturday to help allow Macon Speedway to run its program on the first Saturday of May. With three shows in the books, the last two shows have contributed with 120 & 122 total entries. Opening Night had 96 entries. The season is just getting started and drivers and fans alike are flocking to the World's Fastest 1/5th mile dirt oval like never before.

 

Next Saturday night, Macon Speedway will feature its first look of the 2019 POWRi Midgets & Micro Sprint appearance. The Decatur Building Trades Pro Late Models will race a Big Ten Series event, plus Street Stocks & Hornets make up a full show that expects another 100+ racecars in the pit area.

JIOVANI-STUDT-JEZYLO-WHISMAN NOTCH FLAT ROCK OPENING NIGHT WINS
Flat Rock, MI-May 4, 2019:
Flat Rock Speedway kicked off its 2019 racing schedule with an action-packed night of entertainment. Jack's Bicycle of Monroe sponsored the night, which included Scout Night. All scouts were guests of the track for the first night of racing.
Frank Jiovani captured the 50 lap ARCA Moran Chevrolet Late Model feature over Craig Everage, Dennis Strickland, Jeff Vrsek and Steve Cronenwett Jr. A lap 47 incident between race leader Paul Pelletier and Justin Schroeder brought out the yellow, with both drivers going to the tail of the field. Jiovani, who started 10th, took the point and zipped to the win. Chris Benson, Pelletier, Schroeder, rookie Connor Zbozien and Joe Hawes completed the top 10. Jiovani also set the Moran Chevrolet Fast time at 11:666.
By lap 8 of the ARCA DTS Drive Train Specialists Street Stock A Main, half of the 20 car field had ended their nights due to on-track incidents. Fast qualifier Greg Studt (13:142) was in the lap 4 melee', which brought out the red flag. Greg pitted, while Clarity Patton, Jeff Metdepenningen and Kyle Worley retired for night with damage to their machines. Studt, restarting 16th, went to the high side and slowly picked off car after car, grabbing the lead with 4 to go on his way to the win. Arnold Kirsch took second, rookie Ethan Stadniczuk, who also came from the tail and followed Studt's tracks, used the high groove and got all the way to third at the stripe in a great drive. Rob Randa was fourth and Nick Shanks fifth, followed by Rob Moore Jr., Landon Schuster, Trevor Farmer, Vaughn Chambless and Chris Diovardi.
Defending champion Ian Jezylo sped away to the victory in the 15 lap ARCA DTS Drive Train Specialists B Main, topping Alan Kennedy, Rich Abel, Adam Jezylo, Gary Navarre, Leroy Farmer and George Burgess.
It was all Billy Earley for 15 laps of the ARCA Victory Lane Quick Oil Change Figure 8 feature, but the race was 20 laps. Earley's shut-off switch shut down the engine as the defending champ coasted to off the Figure 8 course. Dennis Whisman inherited the lead and scored the win. Whisman's night started off on a sour note, as he broke something in qualifying and slammed the wall. The crew worked all the way to the feature to get Dennis back out on the track. Joe Vanderhoof was second, James Vanderhoof third, Dave Lambert fourth and Dennis Whisman Jr. fifth. Earley was next in line; Stephanie Bradley did not make the start. Earley set a new track record in time trials at 20:290.
Saturday, May 11 is ArborOakland Group Autograph Night and Monroe County 4-H Youth Night. The Late Models, Figure 8's and Street Stocks, along with the Bandoleros, will be in action. Autographs are at 6:15 and show time is 7 p.m.

 

 

 

Big Time Racing At Fairgrounds Speedway Moved To Sunday, May 5th

Saturday Weather Too Wet; Sunday Forecast Dry

 

(Nashville, TN) Drivers, teams, and fans from all over the country have converged in the Music City for this weekend’s ARCA Menards Series/Super Late Model doubleheader race at Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville.  Unfortunately, Saturday weather was too wet so the racing portion of the event has been moved to Sunday afternoon, where the forecast is calling for dry conditions and highs in the 70’s.  The green flag for racing is set for just after 1:00 PM.  Tickets will be available at the gate.

 

Sunday’s running of the General Tire Music City 200 presented by Inspectra Thermal Solutions will mark the fifth straight year that the ARCA Menards Series has visited the historic track.  What makes the show so special, is the fact that ARCA is paired up with three of the top Super Late Model series in the country for a racing doubleheader.  The North-South Super Late Model Challenge 100 presented by Team Construction has 35 different competitors entered from three different racing series.  The event is co-sanction by the ARCA/CRA Super Series powered by JEGS, the Southern Super Series presented by Sunoco, and the CARS Tour.

 

Both types of cars were able to complete practice on Saturday before rains hit and will start the event based on practice times.  Jasper, GA driver Chandler Smith was fastest in ARCA Menards Series practice and will start from the pole on Sunday.  Ty Gibbs, grandson of legendary football coach Joe Gibbs, was second, while Christian Eckes, Bret Holmes, and Michael Self completed the top five.

 

In Super Late Model practice, Matt Craig ended up at the top of the chart, while Josh Brock, Stephen Nasse, Donnie Wilson, and Johnny VanDoorn completed the top five.  34 different cars took time and will make for a great field on Sunday.

 

Sunday pit gates will open at 10:00 AM, grandstands at 11:30, ARCA pre-race ceremonies begin at 12:35 PM, with the start of the General Tire Music City 200 presented by Inspectra Thermal Solutions scheduled for 1:09 PM.  The North-South Super Late Model Challenge 100 presented by Team Construction will follow, with a likely start time around 3:15.

Boyles Tops Sprint Car Feature

To Highlight Gas City I-69 Speedway Opener

During ‘Spring Fever’ Show Friday Night

 

GAS CITY, Ind., May 4 — After a long winter and a rainout last week, Gas City I-69 Speedway drivers and fans got some relief for their spring fever as the track opened its 2019 season Friday night. Despite a persistent mist in the air, a large crowd of race-hungry fans was on hand for the six-class program at the quarter-mile dirt oval and saw defending track champion Clinton Boyles win a torrid 25-lap, non-stop, non-wing sprint car feature.

 

Derek Losh came out on top of a battle with Ryan Sutter to win the 20-lap UMP modified feature. Brad Strunk dominated the 15-lap American Mini Sprint Association (AMSA)’s 1,000 cc winged mini sprint feature in the first of five events that group is scheduled to present at Gas City in 2019. Joey Spiewak was triumphant in the 10-lap street stock feature, and Bill Lewis led all 10 laps of the super street main event. James Headley won the 10-lap hornets feature. The jam-packed program featured 116 race cars (including 35 sprint cars) and challenging weather, but was still over by 11:47 p.m.

 

Boyles started eighth in the 20-car sprint car feature but was third by lap two, took the lead from Chad Boespflug on lap four, and was lapping cars before the halfway point. Justin Grant passed Boespflug on lap 11 for second place and finished in the runner-up position. Kevin Thomas Jr., Brady Bacon and Tyler Hewitt rounded out the top five in a field of heavy hitters, but Boyles was not to be denied. He drove the same car that took him to the 2018 track championship — Paul Hazen’s red No. 57 DRC that is sponsored by Physical Medicine Consultants and KECO Coatings and powered by a Kercher-prepared Chevy engine.

 

The sprint action only paused once all night, when Shane O’Banion flipped between Turns 1 and 2 in warm-ups. Mini sprint driver Keith Arvin also flipped between Turns 3 and 4 at the start of that feature. Luckily both escaped injury.

 

Nathan Loney started second in the UMP modified feature and led the first four laps before Zeke McKenzie charged under him in Turn 2. Loney regained the lead in the same turn on lap nine before McKenzie got him back with a move to the outside in Turn 4 on the following lap. Two laps later they banged together on the backstretch, and Loney pulled off into the infield due to the contact.

 

McKenzie continued to show the way as the cars jerked their way around the track until something broke on his car too, which put Ryan Sutter into the lead on lap 16. Losh came on strong at the end and dipped under Sutter in Turn 4 on the white-flag lap for the victory with his Superior Sales and Service No. 21. Sutter, Scott Orr, polesitter Bill Griffith and Tony Anderson, who started 17th, rounded out the top five.

 

After the red for Arvin’s flip at the start of the mini sprint feature, polesitter Brad Strunk dominated that race with his Parsons Construction Group No. 23S. He had more than a half-track lead over runner-up Jack Nickles at the checkered. Howard McCormick started 15th and last but finished third. Ethan Rutherford and Chuck White were next across the line.

 

Bill Lewis led all 10 laps of the super street feature in the R & R Transmission/Thompson Trucking No. 14. Jeff Matheny ran in second place until Shawn Valenti got under him at the beginning of the backstretch working lap four, but by the time they reached Turns 1 and 2 Matheny slid to a stop to bring out a yellow. Jeffery Jessup ended up third behind Lewis and Valenti. Matheny rebounded for fourth and Tony Anderson rounded out the top five.

 

Polesitter Joey Spiewak led the whole way in the street stock feature for his first Gas City feature victory. Andy Bishop passed Mike Fincher for second on lap three to secure the runner-up honors. Fincher held on for third followed by D.J. Holt and Austin Jones.

 

The Headleys were the stars of the hornet feature. James Headley Jr. started second and led the first lap before his father got the lead with a move to the inside coming out of Turn 4. Headley Jr. regained the lead at the start-finish line on lap five. Eric Solms passed Headley for second on the next lap in the same spot, but Headley got second back on lap seven. His son pulled off the track and headed to the pits with two laps to go due to mechanical difficulties, which gave the lead and eventual victory back to his father in the All Star Performance No. 81. Solms held on for second followed by Logan Easerday, Stevie Clark and Frankie White.

 

The show was streamed live on Speed Shift TV.

 

All six feature winners won their respective heat races.

 

Next Friday night is the track’s “Salute to Moms” show in honor of Mothers Day. Sprint cars, UMP modifieds, street stocks, super streets, hornets and a spectator car race where all the drivers must be mothers are on tap for that program. The latter pays $200 to win.

Bollinger Bests Strong Field Of Mods At Lincoln Speedway

 

(Lincoln, IL) Lincoln Speedway was able to endure heavy rainfall over the last seven days to race this past Friday night, May 3.  While many passed a number of fields covered in water from recent flooding, they arrived at Lincoln Speedway which was ready to go.  Fans got to see a good clean night of action with a solid field of cars.

 

The top story of the night was the DIRTcar Modified turnout.  Some of the top Modified drivers in the Midwest made the trip as 24 competitors were pitside.  Fifteen locked in through heat races while an additional five came through the last chance.  When the green dropped on the 20-lap A-Main, it was Kewanee, IL’s Ray Bollinger racing into the lead with polesitter, Brian Lynn dropping into second.  Retired NASCAR star, Kenny Wallace, made the trip from water logged St. Louis, MO and was running third early on.  Wallace followed Lynn closely, trying to get a run to the inside.  However, at the end of the event, Bollinger held on for his first 2019 win.  Lynn, Wallace, Mike Harrison, and Michael Long completed the top five.  19 out of the 20 drivers finished the race on the lead lap, with only one driver coming up two laps short when his car lost power at the end.

 

One thing is certain, when Ryan Little, of Springfield, IL, shows up to Lincoln Speedway, everyone knows he will be a threat to win.  That was the case on Friday night, as Little took the lead after a back-and-forth battle with Brandon Eskew.  The two had a good run going before Eskew dropped back in the top five.  Little’s challenges weren’t over, however, as Mendon, IL’s Denny Woodworth, moved from his fourth starting spot into second.  Woodworth gave it a college try but Little was able to fend him off.  Jake Little took third, while Cody Maguire and Eskew completed the top five.

 

The Midwest Big Ten Street Stocks came out for their second event of the season but their first at Lincoln.  Nick Macklin, of Argenta, IL, won his heat, which slated him in the second spot for the feature event.  Macklin took the lead early and raced his way to an impressive win.  Terry Reed picked up a few spots to finish second, while Andy Zahnd, Jaret Duff, and Braden Bilger completed the top five.

 

The Nutech Seed DII Midget turnout continued to improve as 15 drivers took the green.  Second place starter, Karter Sarff, a youngster from Mason City, IL, took the early lead in the 20-lap event.  Mitchell Davis, a young driving veteran in the class and Andy Baugh, the winner of the first two events in 2019, ran second and third throughout.  Baugh made a couple of efforts to continue his win streak but Sarff and Davis remained out front.  Following the trio at the checkered were Tyler Roth and Daltyn England.  England picked up seven spots during the race for a top five.  No one accepted the Nutech Seed Front Row Challenge so the bonus moves to $300 at the next event.

 

Rounding out Friday night’s action was the DIRTcar Hornets.  Eric Vanapeldoorn started on the outside pole for the 12-lap event and raced out front early.  The Hornet hotshoe lived up to expectations keeping all competition behind him.  Current point leader, Danny Oates, was able to finish second to Vanapeldoorn, who picked up his second win in three tries this season.  Brady Reed, Mike Eskew, and Jay Mariuza completed the top five.

 

Up next for Lincoln Speedway, the Midwest Big Ten Super Late Models will open up their season at the track on Friday, May 17.  Joining the cars in a Summer National tune-up will be the DIRTcar Modifieds, Nutech Seed DII Midgets, Street Stocks, and Hornets.
