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
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
"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.
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
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.

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
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
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.
Bridgeport action moves to the
Design for Vision/Sunglass Central 3/8th mile track with the Big
Block Modifieds, 602 Crate Sportsman and Mid Atlantic Sprint
Series, Vintage and Rookies next Saturday night with racing
getting under way at 6pm. The World of Outlaws come to

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
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
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
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
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
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.

Wallace, Ewing Rewrite Macon Record Books
(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
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.

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

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

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
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
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.
