PAUL AND WEISS ARE FRIDAY NIGHT WINNERS AT SPIRIT SPEEDWAY


Damon Paul and Kyle Weiss claimed their first victories of the 2019 season on the Spirit Speedway quarter mile on Friday night. 
 


 

It was a clean sweep for Paul who raced to victory in both of the Twin 15 lap features for the Ace Overhead Door Company 600 Micro Sprint feature events.  Paul earned his first ever Spirit victory in a Twin 15 show last season and now has four career wins at Spirit after Friday night's events.


 

Kyle Weiss finally had things go his way as he drove to his first win in the JS Weld-Rite/Mongoose Chassis 270 Micro Sprint twenty lap feature event.  Weiss has shown plenty of speed all season but his results have been hindered by on track incidents or mechanical failures.  That was not the case on Friday night as Weiss picked up his first Spirit win since the 2017 season.


 

In the first of two fifteen lap feature events for the Ace Overhead Door Company 600 Micro Sprints, Kyle Spence and Paul lined up side by side on the front row to lead the field to the green flag.  Spence immediately took the lead and moved up the track to take the lead as Whitey Kidd III took over second on the first lap.  Paul regained second after a second lap restart as Kidd and Matt Smith battled for third.  As Spence led the field through lap five, Kidd owned third leaving Smith to battle with Mike Rutherford for fourth.  


 

Paul stayed right with Spence, pressing the leader on every lap.  The top five remained unchanged through lap ten but on lap eleven, Paul passed Spence for the lead, only to have the caution flag wave, negating his efforts.  Spence led the way when the green flag waved again.  Smith took over third on lap twelve.


 

With just two laps remaining, the field lined up for a single file restart.  This time, Paul executed his inside move to perfection, coming away with the lead.  Paul led the final two laps, leading Spence, Smith, Kidd, and Rutherford to the checkered flag.  John Barnett finished sixth followed by Eddie Barber Jr., Gary Bozowksi, Richie Keller and Colin Bustard to complete the top ten.  Paul drew the number eight for the inversion for the second fifteen lap feature event.


 

Gary Bozowski and Eddie Barber, Jr. led the way to the start of the second fifteen lap feature event.  Bozowski put the No. 97G out in front.  Mike Rutherford moved up to second on lap two with Spence and Paul right behind.


 

After an early race caution, the field raced non-stop to the checkered flag with Bozowski holding off the challenges of Paul lap after lap.  Bozowski led the way for thirteen laps before Paul drove underneath him to take the lead on lap fourteen.  


 

Paul led the way to the checkered for a clean sweep followed by Bozowski, Spence, PJ Williams and Rutherford.  Bustard crossed the line in sixth followed by Barber, Kidd, Smith and Jon Keller.  


 

Polesitter, Sean Huesser led the field of JS Weld-Rite/Mongoose Chassis 270 Micro Sprints to the start of their twenty lap feature event but had to race three wide in order to maintain the lead for lap one.  Weiss raced into second on lap two as Alex Swift raced into third.  


 

Weiss raced into the lead on a lap five restart.  Huesser made contact while trying to regain the lead, sending him for a wild ride in turn four.  Swift received significant damage and headed to the pits.  Huesser was not injured but his race ended on lap five as the No. 20 was towed to the pits.


 

Weiss led the way on the restart as the cars battled it out for the top five behind the leader.  Justin Dougherty raced in second in his No. 4 but it was the No. 4 of Decker Morrow who took over second in the final five laps.  


 

Weiss led the way to the checkered to capture the win over Morrow, Mike Rutherford, Luke Fogg who battled back from an early race incident and John Wagner, Jr. completing the top five.  Tom Landwher, Dougherty, Tyler Grau, Jon West and Jayson Conover rounded out the top ten. 


 

Jason Dunkleberger dominated the Mini Late Model feature event to take the win at the end of fifteen laps followed by Chris Pascoe and Tucker Gordner.


 

Racing returns to the Spirit Speedway quarter mile next Friday night with a tripleheader of Micro Sprints as the 270 & 600s are joined by the 250 division.  Racing gets underway at 8pm. 12, 2019

HOT SUMMER NIGHT RACING AS PAUCH, PECK & WILLS RACE TO BRIDGEPORT WINS



 

The only thing hotter than the weather is the racing action at the Bridgeport Speedway as the Spirit Auto Center Big Blocks, South Jersey Overhead Door 602 Crate Sportsman and Sunbelt Rental Outlaw Stocks returned to Saturday night action on the lightning fast 5/8th mile speedway on First Responders Night.
 


 

Billy Pauch raced to his fifth win of the 2019 season in the twenty-five lap Spirit Auto Center Big Block Modifieds in a race that saw five different leaders and too many lead changes to count!  On lap nine, it was Pauch who drew the caution with a left rear flat.  He made a trip to the pits and returned to start at the rear of the field, breaking into the top five with just ten laps to go.  


 

Bob Sarkisian and Ron Roberts lead the starting line-up to the green flag with Sarkisian taking the lead.  Sarkisian led the first six laps before Richie Pratt, Jr. raced by on lap seven in the Danny's Pizza Pizzazz No. 51.  Pratt led a pair of laps before Brett Ballard took to the outside on the backstretch to race into the lead for laps nine and ten.  On a lap eleven restart, it was Pratt who took to the outside to take the lead.


 

There was plenty of action happening behind the leader as Ballard. Ryan Watt and Neal Williams battled for position.  


 

Pratt took the five to go sign from starter, Ken Golden, Jr. with Watt, Williams and Pauch trailing.


 

Then things got really interesting as Pauch raced into third on lap twenty-one.  Watt challenged Pratt for the lead and led the way to complete lap twenty-two.  It was a three car battle for the lead the next time around with Pauch taking over on lap twenty-three.  Pauch was able to pull away from the field, leaving Pratt and Watt to race for second.  Pauch took the checkered followed by Watt, Pratt, Williams and Ballard.  Jim Britt finished sixth with Roger Manning, Matt Stangle, Travis Hill in the Michael No. 51M and Sam Martz completing the top ten at the end of twenty-five laps.  


 

Former Rookie Champion, Matt Peck raced to his second win of the season but first on the 5/8th mile track in the South Jersey Overhead Door 602 Crate Sportsman competition.  


 

Peck led all twenty laps and spent most of them deflecting the challenges of a very persistent Wayne Weaver who ran in second.  Jim Gallagher, Jr. battled back to finish third after a back and forth battle with Sammy Martz, Jr. who was sidelined with mechanical issues on the final lap of the race.  Current point leader, Eric Kormann raced to a fourth place finish with Travis Hill rounding out the top five.  Ernie Miles III finished a season best sixth followed by David Hartman, Andrew Belmont, Bobby Bracall and Brett Belmont.


 

Justin Moench came away with the win in the final DA's Auto Body & Repair Rookie feature event to capture the 2019 Rookie Championship.  Scott Maher finished second in the eight lap feature event but it was Kathy Buzby who finished second in the Rookie points. 


 

Rookie graduation took place behind the grandstands before the start of the Saturday night competition.


 

Tom Wills, Jr. picked up his fourth win of the season in the Sunbelt Rental Outlaw Stocks, taking the lead with an outside pass by Brian Ludwig on a lap seven restart.


 

Andrew Joslin led the first four laps before Ludwig took over on lap five in a race that saw numerous caution flags during the fifteen lap event.


 

Wills led the way to the checkered flag with Ludwig finishing second.  Lee Allen rebounded from several incidents to finish third  followed by Joslin and John Parker to round out the top five.


 

Bridgeport action returns next Saturday for Bike Night on the 5/8th with the Big Block Modifieds, 602 Crate Sportsman, Outlaw Stocks and Vintage cars with racing getting underway at 7pm.

ALLEN LEADS FLAT ROCK WIN PARADE

Flat Rock, MI-July 13, 2019:


 
Veteran Ron Allen powered his way to victory in the ARCA R & M Recycling 30 lap Silver Cup feature race Saturday night at Flat Rock Speedway. R & M also served as the Autograph Night sponsor, and a nice crowd turned out on a warm and humid evening as the teams greeted fans of all ages.

 
Jacob Lee, Ethan Stadniczuk, Aaron Greathouse, Rayce Metdepenningen and Killian McMann also visited the Monroe Asphalt Winner's Circle after their respective feature wins.

 
After 3 tries, the Late Model Sportsman teams returned to the pit area as a host of cars were damaged in the attempts to start the event. When the class returned to the track, Greg Stilwell grabbed the lead at the green flag. Allen charged quickly to the front and took the point on lap 7 and built up a sizable lead. A great 5-car battle ensued for second spot. Howard Kelley Jr. went to the outside lane and grabbed second but ran out of time to track down Allen at the finish. Mike Young also went to the high groove and moved up in the final laps to take third, Grant Hedges was fourth and Stilwell fifth, followed by Tommy O'Leary IV, Kent McCloskey, Andy Harding, Kyle Worley, Robert Meiring, Adam Plonski, Jimmy Wahl and Dan Grigsby. Hedges and Grigsby were the heat winners. Young was the fast qualifier.

 
Third-generation driver Jacob Lee won out in a race-long battle with Dennis Whisman Jr. and then held on in the final 2 laps on a sprint to the finish to grab his first-ever win in the 20 lap ARCA Victory Lane Quick Oil Change Figure 8 feature event. Lee and Whisman Jr. battled back and forth right from the start. Whisman looked high and low but to no avail. Joe Vanderhoof reeled in the leaders in the final 5 laps and joined the fray, and as the trio came down to the checkered flag, Lee crossed the stripe for the win, while the challenging duo went spinning down the track, allowing James Vanderhoof to sneak by to grab second spot. Joe Vanderhoof was third, Ethen Lambert fourth and Whisman Jr. fifth, followed by Dave Lambert and Stephanie Bradley. Dennis Whisman Sr. and James Pankow were scratched from the race. Ethen Lambert took the heat race, while Whisman Jr. set quick time at 20:721.

 
Make it 2 in a row for Ethan Stadniczuk as he zipped along to win the 25 lap all-green flag ARCA DTS Drive Train Specialists Street Stock A Main Saturday night. Ethan took control right from the start, with pressure from Rob Randa and then Jim Froling. Ethan gradually edged out front to about a car length or 2 cushion as he sped to the victory. Froling was second, Greg Studt made a great charge in the final laps, coming from 7th spot to third at the finish, Scott Selmi did the same to take fourth and Rob Moore was fifth. Guy Fire, David Liaeff, Landon Schuster, Randa and Kyle Worley completed the top ten.

 
Aaron Greathouse nosed out James Baber and Chris Diovardi to win the ARCA DTS Drive Train Specialists Street Stock B Main 15 lap event. Trevor Farmer, Ian Jezylo, L.J. Farmer, Jerry Farmer, Adam Jezylo, Rich Abel and Taylor Papineau were next in line. Studt set fast time for the 35 car field at 13:283, while Diovardi topped the B field at 13:905.   Froling, Nick Shanks, Jeff Luttermoser, Wilburn Parks and L.J. Farmer were the heat race winners.

 
The Vault ARCA Factory Stock/Enduro class ran a 25 lap non-point race Saturday, and 4 drivers took turns leading the event. The action was at the front as Ian Jezylo led the first 4 laps. Bob Swanson then took charge, but on lap 8, Kenyon Knight zoomed into the lead. Kenyon held the point until lap 12 when Rayce Metdepennigen pulled into the number 1 spot and held it for the distance to take the win. Knight's great run netted second spot, Matt Ringger was third, Chris Metdpenningen fourth and James Rae fifth, followed by Randy Padgett Jr., Steve Smith, Tom LaFollette, Jeff Wells and Jezylo.

 
Killian McMann and Joel Smith went 1-2 in the 12 lap Bandolero feature event.

 

 

 

Josh Berry Scores Victory in Wild Crystal Coast 125

 

PELETIER, NC – JR Motorsports driver Josh Berry picked up the victory in a frantic Solid Rock Carriers Crystal Coast 125 at Bobby Watson’s Carteret County Speedway on Saturday night, a consequential race for the CARS Tour which excited fans and frustrated many competitors.

 

Berry took the lead away from pole-sitter on Chad McCumbee on lap 73 and never looked back at the chaos that unfolded behind him.  Among the casualties of the chaos were Berry’s main championship rival, last year’s CARS Tour champion Bobby McCarty, and reigning Carteret County Speedway track champion Brandon Clements.

 

After the race, Berry, who was involved in a late-race skirmish in last year’s Crystal Coast 125, was elated about his victory.

 

“We’ve had a really good car all weekend since we got here,” Berry said. “We thought it would be best to ride around for a bit, but at halfway, we decided to make a move at it, and I was able to get the lead. Luckily we were in front of all that mess.”

 

Behind Berry, a donnybrook ensued, which included a multi-car accident on lap 109 which swept up many contenders – including McCarty, Layne Riggs, Justin T. Carroll, Clements, and Joshua Yeoman.

 

In the lap 109 incident, eventual runner-up Deac McCaskill attempted to throw a black on McCarty, but McCarty had already gotten within a position to make the pass.  The two drivers made contact, triggering the race’s most notable incident which resulted in Brandon Pierce nearly going airborne.

 

“He just came all the way down on me,” a perturbed McCarty said after the crash. “I don’t know what he was thinking, but it was just some bull crap. I’m not playing these games anymore. I’ve been doing this for 21 years and I know what I’m doing, and I’m done playing the nice guy. If I have a fifth-place car, and I have a shot to take everyone out to win it, that’s what I’m going to do.”

 

McCaskill, who won the series championship in 2016, was apologetic after the melee.

 

“My initial reaction was that I didn’t want to get turned into the wall,” McCaskill said. “I came off a lane and Bobby was there. Unless I see something different on the replay, I’m sorry for what happened. I hate tearing stuff up, and I can’t really enjoy this finish here.”

Carteret County was once again impactful in the CARS Tour championship picture.  Entering Saturday night’s race, Berry had only a one-point advantage in the CARS Tour championship point standings.  After Saturday, Berry will have a comfortable lead in the standings as the series heads to a track Berry has had a lot of success.

 

“We had a good lead a month ago, so these things can evaporate quick,” Berry stated. “You have to stay on it and keep working hard every day to try and stay upfront. To hold off [McCarty], we’re going to have to be in the Top 3, so we’re just going to keep racing hard and be up there at the end.”

For his part, McCarty feels the lap 109 incident may have cost him a second consecutive CARS Tour championship.

 

“I was racing for a championship, and he just took every bit of that from me,” McCarty explained. “We are done in the points. This literally handed it to Josh. It’s frustrating because these guys worked really hard all weekend trying to get it right, and it was all taken away by somebody that I respected a lot up until this point.”

 

The late-race chaos allowed Sammy Smith to race his way into a third-place finish. Layne Riggs was able to rebound to finish fourth, his worst-ever finish at Carteret County, while Justin S. Carroll, Trevor Ward, Tyler Matthews, Camden Gullie and Chad McCumbee rounded out the top-10.

Jonathan Kornegay came away with the victory in the Charger race, passing Joshua van Winkle on lap 13.  Michael Tucker led wire-to-wire in the 35-lap Carolina Mini-Stock Challenge feature.

 

The 2019 season resumes at Bobby Watson’s Carteret County Speedway on Saturday, July 27th with Harley Davidson of New Bern Summer Jam.  Limited Late Model racing headlines the event.

Ewing Flips Script In Macon Pro Late Models On First Responders Night

By BZ

 

(Macon, IL) Last week at Macon Speedway, Dakota Ewing took the lead in the Decatur Building Trades Pro Late Models feature with three laps to go and lost it in the second turn of the white flag lap. This week, Ewing was able to flip the script and take the win away from Jake Little as Little fumbled around in the second turn. Little appeared a solid lock for the winner's circle at the top of the track until Ewing climbed up top and then closed the gap. Coming up on the finish, a caution flag closed the distance and Little and Ewing were neck-and-neck and nose-to-nose to the finish until the second turn of lap 19. Many can only speculate what exciting things may happen next week during the Midwest Big Ten Series 50-lap race as part of the Kerbystrong 100.

 

The second turn was also a rough patch during the BillingsleyRewards.com Modifieds feature as Curt Rhodes was also snagged by the top groove dirt which gave up the top spot to Tommy Sheppard, Jr. just past the midway part of the race. Sheppard, the defending champion and points leader, ran away with the finish and extended his 2019 points lead.

 

Since the introduction of the Pro Modified division at Macon Speedway, Tim Hancock has been a name synonymous with winning and checkered flags and trophies. Once again, it was. But this particular race went in favor of Tim Hancock, Jr., not Tim Hancock, Sr. Tim Senior had woes in his blue 0 car and had to use Kevin Rench's 116 machine to complete the evening. Starting in the back, Hancock Senior worked his way up the field and would finish fourth. Tim Junior was given the lead thanks to Rob Timmons creating a spinout in the early laps and was sent to the tail of the group. With Billy Nail and Nick Justice figuring out the track with their cars, the Junior Hancock was working his wheel through the corners and to the checkered flag.

 

Nick Macklin was all over the Archer's Alley Street Stock feature. Cruising along the top of the 1/5th mile dirt track, Macklin weaved his way through the lapped traffic and brought his car back to victory lane. His toughest critic, his son, has been waiting for his dad to bring home a new trophy. Victory lane is not an easy place to get to and its even tougher when your flesh & blood is counting on it.

 

The Micro Sprints Presented by Bailey Chassis saw a wild event. Jeremy Camp started in the last row, 15th starting position of the 16 cars, thanks to his engine boiling over in the heat and having to pull off the track before the finish. Camp would fly through the field and get to second place by the sixth lap. Cole Tinsley led the race and Drake Turner was looking for second place from the third place position. As Camp was making his move for the lead, Tinsley and Turner collided and brought out the caution flag. Camp was the leader and ran away to the finish.

 

The Hornet division saw a three-car battle for the lead with Michael McKay, Mike Eskew and Brady Reed all within a car length's lead from the top spot. McKay got the pole position start and kept the lead as Eskew ran behind him. Reed, last week's feature winner, started in tenth position as the division rules specify for competitive reasons, raced through the traffic to get behind Eskew. Reed couldn't make the pass on Eskew as Eskew couldn't make the pass on McKay and the Springfield driver scored his first checkered flag of 2019.

 

The 5th Annual Kerbystrong 100 is slated for next Saturday night with a special 50-lap $2,000-to-win Midwest Big Ten Series Pro Late Model feature highlighting the action. There will be two 25-lap features on the program, too, as the BillingsleyRewards.com Modifieds and the Sportsman will run. Those divisions were ran by Kerby Damery during his racing career. The Neal Tire & Auto Pro Modifieds, Archer's Alley Street Stocks and Hornets will be part of the evening.

Kip Hughes Takes Sooner Late Model Honors at DCRP with Clay Sellard, Alex Wiens, Mike Petersilie & Reagan Sellard Victorious as Well

Lonnie Wheatley, DODGE CITY, Kan. (July 13, 2019) – Current series points leader Kip Hughes overcame some early adversity to race to Dodge City Raceway Park victory lane as the Sooner Late Model Series made its first appearance atop the 3/8-mile clay oval on Saturday night.

Hughes battled past early leader Adam Schrag on the 11th round and led the remained of the 25-lapper for his fourth series win of the year.

While Hughes topped the Late Model forces, Clay Sellard added his second consecutive IMCA Modiifed win, Alex Wiens scored his first career DCRP win in IMCA Sport Modifieds, Mike Petersilie bested the IMCA Stock Cars and Reagan notched his third IMCA Hobby Stock win of the year.

In Sooner Late Model action, the night started off with Kip Hughes suffering engine problems in hot laps and missing out on heat race action.

“We hurt a brand new motor in hot laps, fortunately we had some spares with us and were able to get it changed out pretty quick,” Hughes explained.

Adam Schrag jumped into the early lead, but soon had Hughes pressuring him for the point.  Hughes finally slipped under to take command on the 11th round and held point until the race’s only caution flew with ten laps to go when Schrag came to a stop on the track.

Back under way, Hughes paced the final ten rounds ahead of Adam Popp with Steven Hawkins outlasting Scott Phillips over the closing circuits for the show position and Mark Brill rounding out the top five.

In the 20-lap IMCA Modified feature, Bucklin’s Clay Sellard broke into the lead on the second lap and le the rest of the way to make it two in a row.

It wasn’t without challenge though, as reigning track champion Nick Link closed in and pulled alongside on the bottom on the 13th lap.  Sellard was able to fend off the challenge and took Link’s line away to secure the win.

Link settled for second with current points leader William Nusser in third while Trent Gray nipped Ryan Heger at the line for fourth.

The 15-lap IMCA Sport Modified turned into a showdown between the Wiens brothers Alex and Kyle, both from Newton.

A. Wiens gunned into the initial lead from the pole position but soon had K. Wiens pressuring for the point.  After some side-by-side battling along the way, A. Wiens prevailed for his first DCRP score with K. Wiens in second.  Bart Baker crossed the stripe third with Mike Lunow and Brian May also in the top five.

A past IMCA Modified winner at DCRP, Hoisington’s Mike Petersilie outdueled Troy Burkhart to get his first 20-lap IMCA Stock Car win atop the 3/8-mile clay oval.

After Robbie Perkins and Donald Kaup traded tuns leading the initial handful of circuits, Burkhart battled into the lead with Petersilie moving in to challenge for the point.

The duo battled wheel-to-wheel for several round before Petersilie battled into the front on the 11th round.  Petersilie kept Burkhart at bay the rest of the way to secure the win with Burkhart, Chris Oliver, Michael Pepper and Donald Kaup rounding out the top five.

Bucklin’s Reagan Sellard raced around Matt O’Hair on the 11th of 15 laps to pick off his third IMCA Hobby Stock feature win in the last four events.

O’Hair had wrestled the lead away from Dion Priddy on the fourth lap and then held off Sellard until the final handful of rounds.  The two-time and defending track champion raced on to victory lane ahead of O’Hair with Priddy, Cody Ghumm and Brett Copeland rounding out the top five.

While current points leader R. Sellard padded his Hobby Stock points lead and William Nusser maintained his Modified points lead, a pair of points leaders ran into feature issues with both Angel Munoz (Stock Cars) and Jeff Kaup (Sport Modifieds) both exiting a lap into their respective features after being collected in incidents.

Action resumes at Dodge City Raceway Park next Saturday, July 20, with a full card of championship chase action including Precise Racing Products DCRP Sprint Cars, IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sport Modifieds, IMCA Stock Cars and IMCA Hobby Stocks.  The 1/7-mile DCRP clay oval will then round out the weekend with Round Five of Micro Sprint and Kart competition getting under way on Sunday at 6:30 p.m.

Henry tightens AFCS battle with Fremont 410 win; Westfall gets dramatic BOSS victory; Ivy scores late race 305 win

By Brian Liskai
 
FREMONT, Ohio - Cap Henry knows the ups and downs of sprint car racing. It was made very evident to him this weekend as he missed the feature Friday at Attica Raceway Park but rebounded Saturday to score his second 410 win of the season at Fremont Speedway on Roots Poultry/Fort Ball Pizza Palace Night.
 
The win also vaults Henry back into the battle for the championship of the Kistler Racing Products/All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads Attica Fremont Championship Series (AFCS) Presented by the Baumann Auto Group. Henry, from Republic, Ohio, came into the night third in the series points.
 
Henry's eighth career Fremont win wasn't easy as he made a phenomenal move to split two lapped cars with two laps to go in turns three and four as Nate Dussel was closing on him.
 
"These guys have been working really hard all year and we've been close a lot of times and just couldn't seal the deal. This goes out to all the crew guys who worked really hard to keep us out front. It was getting pretty hairy there at the end and I knew it was time to go. Hopefully those guys new they were a lapped down and there was a race going on. I could hear someone back there and I knew I had to get ahead of those guys," said Henry beside his Lane Racing/Beer Barrel Bourbon/Geck Electric/Pro Auto Wraps/Wings Unlimited/Lead Head Waterfowl/FK Rod Ends/backed machine.
 
Pleasant Hill, Ohio's Matt Westfall survived near disaster on the final lap to score his second Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS) non-wing win of the season. Westfall, the current BOSS point leader, hadn't won a series race since the first event of the season. The end was a thriller as Westfall had gotten around Dallas Hewitt for the lead as they took the white flag with Cooper Clouse also battling for the top spot. Clouse drive his machine into turn one hard on the last lap and made contact with Westfall who did a 360 spin but kept going while Clouse spun to set up a one lap restart finish with Westfall maintaining the lead. Westfall was able to hold off a last lap charge from Hewitt in his Buckeye Machine mount for his first ever win at Fremont Speedway.
 
"I just held it to the floor and kept spinning the wheels to keep rolling. It was tricky tonight. The track had a lot of character. I thought I was going to have to run the top and all of a sudden the bottom came in for me and we were good but Dallas got going on the top so I thought I'm better than him on the bottom in one and two but I have to get to the top down in three and four. That was a heck of a race. I appreciate Ray Marshall for giving me the opportunity to run for him," said Westfall. "We struggled for a little bit this season and crashed a car and got this new car and have been really good but haven't been able to hit our feature set-ups. Hopefully tonight this gets us going in the right direction."
 
Not to be outdone, the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprints was also a barn-burner. With five laps to go leader Alvin Roepke was having a hard time getting around a couple of lapped cars and that allowed John Ivy to close. Roepke spun trying to hold onto the lead and Ivy took over. A caution with four laps to go gave Bobby Clark a shot at Ivy but the defending Fremont track champion wasn't to be denied as he drove to his second victory of the year at "The Track That Action Built."
 
The win - Ivy's fourth overall in 2019 - was his 58th career victory at Fremont, tying him with Jim Linder for fourth on the track's all-time win list. It also puts him back in the chase for the title of the KS Sales and Service AFCS presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales. Ivy came into the night third in the series points and the victory was worth $1,000 thanks to the Pub 400.
 
"I figured we were going to run second or third. Alvin was driving away from us and I saw lapped traffic and I thought 'get up on the thing and at least give it a whirl and see what happens.' We did some work on this thing today. Guy and my brother and the boys worked on it. We did a little bit of this and a little bit of that and hopefully we're in the right direction again," said Ivy beside his L&R Farms/C&N Supply/Rohr Lawn care/Sonny's Welding and Machine/Welty Financial Services/Atkinson Farms/Story Equipment backed machine.
 
"Pretty cool to tie Jim Linder. He was always one of my heroes," Ivy added of his 58th career Fremont win, needing two more to catch Mark Keegan for third on the all-time win list. "Me and Mark raced back in the day and I got to race with Jim just a few times but I sat up in the grandstands and watched him a lot."
 
Australian Andrew Scheuerle and Brian Lay led the field to green for the 30-lap Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprints A-main with Scheuerle gaining the advantage over Henry, Lay, Dussel, Chris Andrews and Lee Jacobs.Chad Wilson stopped with three laps scored and on the ensuing restart Henry drove under Scheuerle for the lead.
 
Dussel took second on lap six and began to close on Henry. Meanwhile a heck of a battle was going on for fifth involving Andrews, Jacobs and Buddy Kofoid. Kofoid spun on lap 10 just as the leaders were entering lapped traffic. When the green came back out the race would go to it's conclusion uninterrupted. Lay drove into third on the restart with Jacobs also getting around Scheuerle for fourth.
 
At the half-way point Henry had built a 1.1 second lead over Dussel with Lay, Andrews, Jacobs and Cale Conley in tow. Henry's lead soon evaporated with 10 laps to go as he encountered heavy lapped traffic. Dussel took several looks inside of Henry as the pair raced through traffic. Lay got in on the fun with six laps to go.
 
Henry made his winning move in turn three coming with just five laps remaining, splitting two lapped cars. He was able to drive to the win over Dussel, Lay, Andrews and Conley.
 
Westfall and Carmen Perigo brought the field to green for the 25-lap BOSS feature with Perigo gaining the advantage over Cap Henry, Westfall, Clouse and Cody Gardner. Mike Miller spun with two laps scored and again a lap later.When the green reappeared Perigo pulled away as Westfall used the extreme low groove to take second while Henry and Clouse battled for third.
 
Following a spun by Kody Swanson on lap six, Westfall used the restart to take several looks below Perigo for the lead, finally taking it on lap eight. Third running Henry took a nasty tumble in turn three on lap nine and walked away unscathed. That moved Hewitt to the third position with Clouse, Gardner and Steve Irwin in tow.
 
Westfall continued to use the bottom lane when the green came back out with Hewitt driving under Perigo for second on lap 11 with Close taking third two circuits later. Hewitt found the top side of turns three and four to his liking and drove into the lead on lap 14. Westfall continued to drive under Hewitt lap after lap but couldn't get the pass accomplished.
 
Westfall moved to the high line in turns three and four but the bottom of turns one and two and stayed within a car length of the leader and was able to take the lead as they took the white flag. Entering turn one on the last lap third place running Clouse gave it one last shot and drove into turn one hard under Westfall and Hewitt, making contact with Westfall who spun but kept going while Clouse sat facing the wrong direction to bring out the caution.
 
That handed Westfall the lead and when the green and white flew together Hewitt tried one last ditch run across the top of turns one and two but couldn't make the pass. Westfall held Hewitt off the final two corners and took the win with Gardner, Perigo and Irwin rounding out the top five.
 
Tyler Street and Bobby Clark brought the field to green for the 25-lap 305 A-main with Clark taking the lead over Ivy, Street, Roepke, Jamie Miller and Kyle Peters. Ivy immediately pressured Clark with Roepke joining the fun on lap three. The three car battle for the lead saw Roepke take the top spot on lap six but Clark battled back and regained the lead on lap seven with Roepke returning the favor a circuit later.
 
Roepke utilized the low line to maintain the lead over Clark, Ivy Street and Miller. But when heavy lapped traffic came into play just past the half way point, Ivy used the high line to take second and closed quickly on Roepke. Roepke would not move off the bottom and when he came to two lapped cars running the same line, Ivy raced to his outside.
 
With five laps to go Ivy took the outside line as Roepke struggled with the lapped cars. Ivy took the lead and Roepke spun. On the ensuing restart a Brandon Moore spin kept the field close. When the green game out for the last time, Ivy had to fend off a serious challenge from Clark as Street, Miller, Shawn Valenti and Peters gave chase.
 
Ivy was able to pull away the final three circuits for the win over Clark, Street, Miller and Valenti.
 
Fremont Speedway will be back in action Saturday, July 27 on Baumann Auto Group Night with the AFCS 410 sprints battling for $4,000 to win. The AFCS 305 sprints and dirt trucks will also be in action.

Courtney Wins USAC “Midwest Midget Championship” Finale at Jefferson County Speedway

Lonnie Wheatley, FAIRBURY, Neb. (July 13, 2019) – Current NOS Energy Drink USAC National Midget Series points leader Tyler Courtney finished off Jefferson County Speedway’s Riverside Chevrolet Midwest Midget Championship presented by Westin Packaged Meats and Schmidt’s Sanitation by storming to victory lane in Saturday night’s 40-lap feature event atop the 1/5-mile clay oval.

Courtney took advantage of a Kevin Thomas, Jr, miscue on a lap five restart to take command after starting from the pole position and led the frantic final 36 laps aboard the Clauson-Marshall Racing No. 7bc NOS Energy Drink Toyota-powered entry.

It wasn’t without some late drama though, as Thomas, Jr., had one last shot at stealing the win after a final caution that set up a four-lap dash to the stripe.

“I saw someone there racing with me for the win,” Courtney said in victory lane.  “I hadn’t been on the bottom of the track since early in the race so I knew I just had to keep hitting my marks up top.”

While Courtney started from the pole position, it was front row outside starter Thomas, Jr., jumping into the initial lead as Courtney fell back to fourth behind Jerry Coons, Jr., and Tanner Thorson on the opening lap.

Courtney rebounded quickly though by getting back up to second by the time the first of three cautions flew after four laps for 2016 Fairbury winner Chad Boat.  And when Thomas, Jr., stumbled on the turn two cushion on the restart, Courtney took quick advantage and raced into a lead that he wouldn’t relinquish aside from a few backstretch feet on the 38th lap.

A 22-lap green flag stretch had the leaders dicing through traffic much of the way until Brady Bacon came to a stop outside of turn two with 26 laps in the books.  And, by that time, Courtney had three lapped cars separating himself from Thomas, Jr., and reigning series champion Logan Seavey.

Courtney raced away on open track as Thomas, Jr., and Seavey lost ground working lapped traffic.  The advantage was negated when Ethan Mitchell spun to  a stop in turn three with just four laps to go.

Thomas, Jr., challenged on the final restart, edging ahead briefly exiting turn two on the 38th lap.  Courtney continued to rail the topside and made it work for his sixth series win of the year.

“We brought our game tonight,” Courtney explained.  “We have to capitalize on nights like this when we start up front.”

Thomas, Jr., settled for second in the Petry Motorsports No. 5 entry.  “Other than my mistake early in the race, I felt like we had equal cars,” Thomas, Jr., commented.  “I tried to sneak by and it worked until I got in the grease and pushed up.”

Seavey settled for the show position in the Keith Kunz Motorsports Mobil 1 No. 67 Toyota-powered machine.  “Those last ten laps were a lot of fun, this track is always fun to race at,” Seavey said

Coons, Jr., crossed the stripe fourth while Tyler Thomas earned Hard Charger honors by rounding out the top five after starting 11th.  Friday night winner Jason McDougal was sixth with Tanner Carrick, Tanner Thorson, Chris Windom and Tucker Klaasmeyer completing the top ten.

Seavey set quick time in qualifying for the second night in a row, stopping the clocks this time at 11.412 seconds before racing to a heat race win as well along with T. Thomas and Zeb Wise.

Meseraull Wins Sprint Feature, Headley Scores in Hornets,
 

McKenzie Tops Mods, VanDrunen Nabs Street Stocks

And Nickles Takes AMSA Mini-Sprint Main

During ‘Christmas in July’ Show at Gas City Friday

 

GAS CITY, Ind., July 13 — Thomas Meseraull must be on Santa Claus’s “nice list,” because the latter came all the way from the North Pole to watch the Waveland, Ind.-based driver win his fifth 25-lap non-wing sprint car feature of the year at Gas City I-69 Speedway Friday night. Santa brought gifts for the children in attendance, and a real reindeer named “Nutcracker” was led in front of the main grandstand to the delight of children of all ages as the quarter-mile clay oval celebrated “Christmas in July.”

 

Clark W. Griswold of National Lampoon’s “Christmas Vacation,” who looked a lot like James Headley of Marion, Ind., won the 15-lap hornet feature in a car with “Mr. Griswold” painted on its side, a Christmas wreath on its nose, and a Christmas tree strapped to its roof. Not only did the tree stay in place, its lights remained lit throughout the feature. Headley exchanged his helmet for a trooper cap like Cousin Eddie Johnson wore for his victory lane celebration.

 

Less festive but equally happy winners during the program were Zeke McKenzie of Claypool, Ind. after the 20-lap UMP modified feature; Justin VanDrunen of Crown Point, Ind. after the 15-lap street stock feature, and Jac Nickles of Harrod, Ohio after the 15-lap American Mini Sprint Association (AMSA) winged mini-sprint feature.

 

“T-Mez” started second in the 20-car sprint feature, charged by polesitter Shane Cottle of Kansas, Ill. with a move to the outside in Turn 2 on the first lap, and led all 25 laps despite three cautions that tightened up the field behind him. He was a straightaway ahead of Cottle at the finish. 

 

Tom Eades of Sharpsville, Ind. owns Meseraull’s DRC, which uses a Stensland-prepped engine. The car is sponsored by Physical Medicine Consultants of Fort Wayne, Ind. and is wrenched by Allen Brown of Kokomo, Ind.

 

Cottle drives a DRC owned by Jamie and Michelle Paul of Eaton, Ohio. It is powered by a Foxco motor and sponsored by High ASSpirations Farm, Rumpke and Hawkins Speed Shop.

 

Scotty Weir of Marion, Ind. started sixth, passed Dustin Ingle of Elida, Ohio and Tim Creech of Indianapolis to move into fourth on the first lap, and got third after defending track champion Clinton Boyles of Brownsburg, Ind. stopped on the backstretch and retired with four laps complete. Weir went on to finish third in the Benic Enterprises DRC powered by a Pedersen engine, but Ingle spun in Turn 2 with seven laps down while running fourth, and Creech spun in Turn 4 with nine laps down while running sixth. Dallas Hewitt of Fletcher, Ohio, who started tenth, ended up fourth at the checkered while Travis Hery of Columbus, Ohio turned a 14th-place starting spot into a fifth-place finish.

 

Sixteen-year-old Brayden Clark of Tipton, Ind. flipped in Turn 4 at the halfway point of the sprint car B main, but luckily climbed out of his DRC under his own power. He’s sponsored by G&G Oil, Quality Pallet and State Farm.

 

Headley (aka Clark Griswold) started second in the hornet feature and led the whole way followed by his son, James Headley Jr. of Wabash, Ind. Headley Jr. got close on lap four while the pair lapped a slower car, but Headley Sr. had a half-straightaway lead over his son at the checkered. The Headleys are sponsored by Dudding’s Heating and Cooling, Garriott Electric, Edwards Automotive and TJR Trucking.

 

Polesitter Jason Spencer of Columbia City, Ind. ran in third place for the entire race in his 2006 Chevy Cobalt sponsored by Alexander’s Garage, Orr Motorsports and Buchanan Automotive. Kolton Sollars of LaFontaine, Ind. came out on top of the best battle of the race when he finished fourth in Kinnie Sollars’ No. 33S sponsored by Headley Tree Service, Holt Auto Body, BuckWild MMA and Dudding Heating and Cooling. Randy Brommer of Columbia City, Ind. placed fifth in the B&B Racing ’96 Cavalier that advertises the Indiana Donor Network in memory of Cody Brommer.

 

McKenzie became the fifth different UMP modified feature winner at Gas City this year when he was victorious in the BZ Enterprises No. 24, which is sponsored by Hogue Engines, Chadd Farms, Bar 13, W. Ousley Concrete, Brew Crew, and Albertson’s Harley Specialists. He started fourth, charged into second place on the first lap, and got the lead on lap two after a caution when Jim Post and Josh Betts got together in Turn 4. McKenzie survived two other cautions to win handily over Daniel Sanchez, who started second but dropped to third before dipping under Andy Bishop of Gas City working lap five on the frontstretch to secure the runner-up honors. The big battle in that race was for third, which finally went to Jerry Bowersock. Bill Griffith placed fourth and Derek Losh, who has won four UMP modified features this year at Gas City, came from the 22nd starting spot to finish fifth.

 

VanDrunen started on the pole of the street stock feature in his Full Auto Racing Supply No. 71 and led the first five laps before Mike Fincher of Rochester, Ind. passed him in Turn 2. VanDrunen got the lead again by dipping under Fincher in Turn 2 working lap 10. Fincher spun in Turn 4 on the white-flag lap to bring out a yellow and set up a one-lap shootout to the checkered. That gave second to Zac Banta of Brookston, Ind., who finished in that spot followed by Larry Persinger of Jonesboro, Ind. in the Marion Tire No. 3C Buick Regal, and Fincher.

 

Nickles, who also won the June 21 mini-sprint feature at Gas City, started sixth but was second by the end of lap one in his yellow CTK Motorsports No. 31 sponsored in part by T&D Interiors, NWO, RCS Construction and NBC Steering and Pumps. He took the lead by getting under polesitter Kinser Medler of West Salem, Ill. coming out of Turn 4 with six laps down, right before a yellow was needed for Chris Bounds of Lima, Ohio, who spun between Turns 1 and 2. There were no more yellows in that race and Nickles won by a straightaway over Medler’s Travco Motorsports No. 56 sponsored by Highland Farms.

 

Chris Miller of Lafayette, Ind. finished third. Adam Schmenk of West Mansfield, Ohio placed fourth. Bill Dunham of Bellevue, Mich., who makes his living as a locomotive engineer for the CN Railroad, rounded out the top five in he and his wife Kassie’s Henchcraft chassis XV3 powered by a stock Yamaha R1.

 

The AMSA mini-sprints will return to Gas City on Sept. 6 and Oct. 5.

 

This coming week is a special one at Gas City I-69 Speedway, as it will host the first event of the eight-event “NOS Energy Drink Indiana Sprint Week” featuring the USAC AMSOIL national sprint cars this coming Thursday night, July 18. Non-wing micro-sprints will also be on that card.

 

C.J. Leary won the most recent USAC Indiana Sprint Week event held at Gas City in 2017, while Tyler Courtney was triumphant in 2016 and Chase Stockon won in 2015. Jon Stanbrough holds the record for the most USAC Indiana Sprint Week victories at Gas City with five, the last of which came in 2014.

 

After that special Thursday show the track will be back in action on Friday nights with its “Wings and Fast Things” show on July 26. It will feature Great Lakes Super Sprints (GLSS) 360 winged sprints, UMP modifieds, outlaw winged 600cc mini-sprints, hornets and tough trucks. Dustin Daggett of Portland, Mich. hopes things will go differently for him in the GLSS race at Gas City on July 26 than they did last year during the first GLSS feature ever held at Gas City. Last June Daggett led every lap of that feature except for the lap that counted. Lapped traffic held him up in the fourth turn on the last lap, which allowed Max Stambaugh of Lima, Ohio, to slide ahead for the victory. The margin of victory for Stambaugh, who hounded Daggett the entire race, was a mere 0.108 of a second.

 

Fans can see the track’s 2019 schedule and get additional information on its website at GasCityI69Speedway.com. Fans can also follow it on Facebook (@GasCitySpeedwayOnTheGas), Twitter (@GasCitySpeedway) and Instagram (@GasCitySpeedway).

Grosz, Amdahl and Halverson Victorious at Jackson Motorplex During New Fashion Pork Night

 

 

 

Inside Line Promotions - JACKSON, Minn. (July 12, 2019) - Parity continued to reign supreme at Jackson Motorplex on Friday when two drivers reached Victory Lane for the first time this season during New Fashion Pork Night.

 

 

 

There have been 17 different winners in 19 official A Mains at the track this season.

 

 

Lee Grosz captured the DeKalb/Asgrow presents the Midwest Power Series and Midwest Sprint Touring Series 360 sprint cars main event and Elliot Amdahl was the Heartland Steel RaceSaver sprint cars presented by Wyffels Hybrids feature winner. It marked their first triumph at the 4/10-mile oval this year as neither division has had a multiple-race winner in 2019.

 

 

 

Brandon Halverson was also victorious as he claimed the NSL non-wing sprint cars presented by HitchDoc victory to become the first two-time winner in one of the regular divisions at Jackson Motorplex this season.

 

 

 

Grosz took advantage of timely cautions to lead all 25 laps en route to the victory. Trey Starks, who tied his career-best finish at the track of second, was in position to pounce in traffic two times when a caution came out to give Grosz a clear track. The final opportunity came with five laps remaining and Grosz didn't see traffic again before the checkered flag was waved.

 

 

 

"I kept jumping the cushion and (am) lucky a caution came out," he said during a Victory Lane interview. "Before that caution with five laps to go I got my wing too far back. I had my hands full."

 

 

 

Jack Dover rounded out the podium with 14th-starting Terry McCarl placing fourth and Thomas Kennedy ending fifth.

 

 

Dusty Zomer, Grosz, Tommy Barber and Eric Lutz were the heat race winners. Lutz also won the dash and Derrik Lusk claimed the B Main.

 

 

 

Amdahl held off sixth-starting Kaleb Johnson during the 20-lap Heartland Steel RaceSaver sprint cars presented by Wyffels Hybrids A Main. Ryan Voss finished third with Colin Smith fourth and Brandon Bosma fifth.

 

 

 

Sam Henderson and Amdahl each won a heat race.

 

 

 

Halverson hustled to his first NSL non-wing sprint cars presented by HitchDoc win since the season opener. Johnny Parsons III rallied from seventh to second place with Jake Kouba scoring a third-place finish. Jeremy Kerzman was fourth and Alex Schriever placed fifth.

 

 

 

Donovan Peterson and Eric Schultz were the heat race victors. Halverson, Kouba, Bryan Roach and Peterson each set quick time during their group's qualifying session.

 

 

 

Jackson Motorplex has a pair of events on tap next week. It begins on Wednesday for the Sea Foam 50 featuring the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series, Heartland Steel RaceSaver Sprint Cars presented by Wyffels Hyrbids and the Late Model Street Stock Series.

 

 

 

The oval will then host Livewire Printing Company Night featuring the DeKalb/Asgrow presents the Midwest Power Series and Midwest Sprint Touring Series 360 sprint cars, Heartland Steel RaceSaver sprint cars presented by Wyffels Hybrids and NSL non-wing sprint cars presented by HitchDoc next Friday.

Rico Races To MOWA Win At Lincoln Speedway

 

(Lincoln, IL) It was an absolutely picture perfect Friday night in Central Illinois the one and only visit of the Built Ford Tough MOWA Sprint Cars presented by Morrow Brothers at Lincoln Speedway.  The pits were packed, on Lincoln Courier night, with five divisions of racing and the fans saw a good show throughout the evening.

 

27 winged warriors of the Built Ford Tough MOWA Sprint Cars filled the pits with 22 stars making the A-Main event.  Fan favorites, Rico Abreu and Parker Price-Miller raced to the front of the 25-lap A-Main event with Abreu holding a pretty wheel.  Price-Miller wasn’t far behind, however, just waiting for a mistake to be made.  As the laps wound down, Abreu had his hands full, working heavy lapped traffic with Price-Miller hot on his heels.  In fact, a couple of times, Price-Miller edged ahead for the lead.  The race went green until the competitors were on the final circuit, as Paul Nienhiser’s #9 slammed the catch fence in turn one, resulting in a red.  With 24 complete, the field had a green-white-checkered to determine the winner.  Abreu, the St. Helena, CA driver pulled ahead by several car lengths and claimed the feature victory.  Price-Miller finished second with Jason Keith, Jordan Goldsberry, and Austin McCall completing the top five.

 

Ryan Little, of Springfield, IL, led the first 11 laps of the Midwest Big Ten Series Pro Late Model event.  Denny Woodworth, from Mendon, IL, was running a close second and made a move on lap twelve to take the lead, right before the race was slowed for a yellow.  Back to green, Woodworth pulled out front with Jake Little, his opponent for the 2019 track championship, moving into second.  As the checkered fell, it was Woodworth claiming the win, Jake Little second, and Ryan Little third.  Chris Dick and Colby Sheppard completed the top five in the 16-car field.  With the win, Woodworth now has a 2-point advantage in the track standings over Jake Little.

 

The DIRTcar Modified event had a few different leaders with some tight action up front.  The track was dry-slick for the event, with drivers searching for the quick way around.  Brandon Roberts led the first lap before Kelly Kovski moved into the lead.  Kovski, in fact, would lead through lap eight before Austin Lynn found some traction 1.5 lanes off the bottom to squeeze around the veteran.  Once out front, Lynn checked out like it was 11 AM at the Hampton Inn.  Meanwhile, Kovski’s run came to an end for a flat tire.  At the end, it was Austin Lynn claiming his second feature win of the year, followed by Brian Lynn, Brandon Roberts, Trevor Neville, and Austin Charron.

 

Polesitter, Patrick Ryan, was impressive early in the 15-lap Nutech Seed DII Midget feature event.  Ryan was holding off challenges from division hotshoe Andy Baugh.  Baugh, though, showed his usual strength on lap seven and took the lead away.  By the end, Baugh would stretch it out for his fifth feature win in six races.  Ryan took second with Bret Tripplett third, Jeff Sparks fourth, and Mark McMahill fifth.  No one accepted the Nutech Seed Front Row Challenge so the bonus money goes to $600 at next Sunday’s event.

 

The DIRTcar KidModz feature had just two participants, with Jeremy Sebens taking the early led.  Audrey Gerberding, the other competitor, lost power with just two laps in and retired from the race.  The double checkereds wave vigorously from the starter stand as Sebens claimed the win.

 

Lincoln Speedway will be back in action on Sunday, July 21 with the Central Illinois Nostalgia Reunion featuring Macon & Springfield Speedways.  Six divisions will be in action with 305 Sprint Cars, Big Ten Pro Late Models, Modifieds, Nutech Seed DII Midgets, Big Ten Street Stocks, and Hornets.  The reunion, which is free to attend, will be held in the pavilion outside of turn one, from 12:00-5:00 PM.  It is free to attend with drinks and food on sale.  Many nostalgic items will be on display as well as a vintage racecar show.

 

Pits will open July 21 at 4:00 with grandstands at 5:00, hotlaps at 6:00, and racing at 7:00.  Grandstand admission will be $15 with kids 11 and under free.

By Brian Liskai
 
ATTICA, Oh. - Byron Reed has served notice that he will be a force to deal with when the World of Outlaw NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series comes to Attica Raceway Park Tuesday, July 16 for the 31st Annual Ohio Logistics Brad Doty Classic Presented by Racing Optics. The eight time Attica champion took the lead with just seven laps to go and drove to his second straight 410 sprint car win of the year at "Ohio's Finest Racing" venue and the third of the season at the track.
 
Reed, from Monclova, Ohio, now has 42 career wins at Attica as he inches closer to Mark Keegan who has the most all-time 410 wins at the track with 56.
 
DJ Foos was able to finish fourth, putting him into contention for the $10,000 championship of the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series (AFCS) Presented by the Baumann Auto Group as series' point leader Buddy Kofoid spun lat in the race and Cap Henry, who came into the night second in points, had a tire go flat in his heat and he did not transfer out of the B-main.
 
Fremont, Ohio's Jamie Miller is on a hot streak in the Fremont Fence 305 Sprints. The former Attica track champion took the lead on lap six and drove to his second straight win at Attica and the fourth straight over all as he has also won the last two features at Fremont Speedway. The victory is the 21st of his career in the division at Attica, placing him in a tie with Bryan Scott for fourth on the track's all-time win list.
 
The win also vaults Miller into a very tight point battle with John Ivy for the KS Sales & Service AFCS Presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales title.
 
Fostoria, Ohio's Shawn Valenti survived a crash-filled dirt truck feature to score his second division win of the year at Attica. It was the 17th dirt truck win of his career at the track as he sits atop the division all-time win list.
 
Brian Lay led the first 17 laps of the Callie's Performance Products 410 A-main before Travis Philo slid in front on lap 18. Reed used a lapped car as a pick to grab the lead on lap 24 and held off Tim Shaffer on a late race restart for the victory.
 
"It's a different level of competition with the World of Outlaws. I'm feeling very comfortable though and I hope to do well Tuesday. Talked to Paul Kistler tonight and this is my favorite motor and everything feels right in the world when this combination is working. I want to thank Paul and Crown Battery and my mom and dad and my crew Kurt, Kevin and Dick and tonight my son Luke is here with me. Especially my mom....you guys don't know but we've been through some thick and thin here the past couple of years and she means a lot to me," said an emotional Reed.
 
Miller rim-road around the tough cushion to take the lead from Bobby Clark on lap six and avoid a lapped car that spun right in front of him with 11 laps to go and drove away for the Fremont Fence 305 A-main win.
 
"I had that ledge built up pretty good down in three and four and the car was getting really really tight with five to go so I had to be on my toes and be ready to correct if it caught. I have to thank Ryan French, Phil Rister, Eric Slade...we just got a brand new shock package on this car this week and definitely happy with the performance," said Miller beside his Fostoria Mod Shop/Crown Battery/Sonic Hauling/Pen Monster.com/Brad’s Barbecue/Napa of Attica/Avon by Angie/Griff’s Engines/Color Street by Jaime Hennig/Reedtown Tavern/York Carpet Outlet/Branham Builders/Imprint Logo backed #26.
 
Valenti grabbed the lead from the drop of the green in the 15 lap dirt truck feature. He had to survive six cautions and held off Brad Keckler for the win.
 
"Last couple of weeks have been pretty tough with the way we've been treated. I try to race everybody clean and hope they would do the same...you find out who your friends really are. I have to thank Jeff Babcock for putting me in this thing and all our sponsors," said Valenti beside his Craig Miller Trucking/Best Performance Motorsports/A Plus Auto Center/KS Sales & Service/Gressman Powersports backed #7B.
 
Brian Lay and TJ Michael brought the field to green for the 30 lap 410 sprint A-main with Lay taking the early advantage over Travis Philo, Michael, Reed, Nate Dussel, Tim Shaffer, DJ Foos, Stuart Brubaker, Hunter Schuerenberg and Buddy Kofoid. Reed moved into third on the second circuit with Dussel taking fourth a lap later.
 
The first caution flew on lap eight for an Andrew Scheuerele spin with Lay leading Philo, Reed, Dussel and Shaffer who had charged from 11th starting spot. On the restart Dussel drove into third  but Reed returned the favor a lap later. Philo caught lay on lap 13 as the pair battled for the lead. Philo executed a slider for the lead on lap 18 and Reed got by Lay for second a lap later.
 
Exiting turn two with lapped traffic ahead, Reed made his winning move, using the lapped car as a pick to take the lead on lap 24. Shaffer took second with four laps to go and started to close on Reed just as the caution flew for fourth running Kofoid who was battling with Philo for third. with three laps to go, Reed got a great restart and drove to the win over Shaffer, Philo, Foos and 14th starter Cale Conley.
 
Bobby Clark and Mike Keegan paced the field for the 25 lap 305 sprint feature with Clark bolting into the lead over Kyle Capodice, Miller and Keegan. Miller drove into second a lap later and immediately challenged Clark for the lead, taking it with a drive off the cushion in turns three and four on lap six. Miller began to pull away until encountering heavy lapped traffic with 12 laps to go allowing Clark and Capodice to close.
 
Ted Peck spun right in front of the leaders for the only caution on lap 14 as Miller and Clark narrowly missed him. On the restart Miller blasted to the caution and drove away for the win. Cark held off a charging Seth Schneider for second with Capodice and Mitch Harble rounding out the top five.
 
Andy Keegan and Paul Brown Jr. brought the field to green for the truck feature but fourth starter Valenti grabbed the lead. Three cautions in the first five laps kept the field in check with Valenti leading Keegan, Brown, Brian Arnold, Brad Keckler and Jeff Ward. Brown and Keegan tangled on lap six battling for second, handing the runner-up spot to Keckler.
 
Cautions fell on lap 10, 11, 12 and 13 which kept the field close. Valenti pulled away the final three laps for the win over Keckler, Ward, Arnold and Eric Devanna.
 
Gates open Tuesday at 3:30 p.m. for the return of the World of Outlaw NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series. Attica Raceway Park will again pay World of Outlaws memberships for the top 15 in weekly points going into Tuesday. There is also a lot of bonus money up for grabs for the top 15 in Attica points.

McDougal Masters USAC Midwest Midget Championship Night One at Jefferson County!

Lonnie Wheatley, FAIRBURY, Neb. (July 12, 2019) – The opening night of Jefferson County Speedway’s Riverside Chevrolet Midwest Midget Championship presented by Westin Packaged Meats and Schmidt’s Sanitation offered up a first-time NOS Energy Drink USAC National Midget series feature winner with Jason McDougal topping Friday night’s 30-lap feature atop the 1/5-mile clay oval.

McDougal assumed the point when early leader Tanner Thorson ran afoul of lapped traffic on the 19th circuit and then kept the Clauson-Marshall Racing duo of Tyler Courtney and Chris Windom at bay over the final dozen circuits to secure the $3,000 triumph aboard the FMR No. 76m entry.

“This is amazing, it’s such a great feeling to finally get one for this team,” the Broken Arrow, OK native commented in victory lane.  “Tanner (Thorson) was gone by a straightaway or so, but Bob (East) always gets this thing pretty tight at the beginning so we’re always fast for the last five laps.”

While McDougal gridded the feature field outside the second row, 2017 Fairbury USAC Midget winner Tanner Thorson led the feature field to the green flag with California’s Robert Dalby alongside.

Thorson gunned into the early lead with McDougal making a move past Dalby soon after a lap five caution for Tyler Thomas’ turn four spin into an infield tire.   McDougal tried to chase down Thorson’s Keith Kunz Motorsports No. 98 entry, but the Nevada native held off the young Oklahoma racer until spinning to a stop on the frontstretch on the 19th lap after contact with a lapped car.

McDougal slipped through the skirmish unharmed with third-runner Kevin Thomas, Jr., and fourth-place contender Tucker Klaasmeyer collected in the scrum as well.  Thomas, Jr., left on the hook, Thorson returned after a quick trip to the work area and Klaasmeyer returned as well only to flip down the backstretch one lap later.

Set for an 11-lap dash to the checkered flag, McDougal had the NOS Energy Drink CMR duo of Windom and 12th-starting Courtney breathing down his neck the rest of the way.  McDougal opened up a slight advantage until Courtney finally battled past Windom for second on the high side.

Courtney and Windom closed in over the final handful of rounds with Courtney falling just two car-lengths short at the stripe as Windom settled for the show position.

“I think one more lap and we would have had him, but it’s only 30 laps,” Courtney said of the close finish.

Windom explained that, “It was a crazy race that first half, then it widened out some at the end.  Jason was a little better than us on the bottom, then I saw Tyler come by the outside of me and I moved up and we both ran him down.  I wish we would have moved up a little sooner, I think we could have got to Jason.  It’s good to be on the podium again, but we’re looking for wins.”

Chad Boat, a 2016 winner at Fairbury, advanced from ninth to fourth with fellow Arizona shoe and tenth-starter Jerry Coons, Jr., rounding out the top five.  Tyler Thomas rebounded from the early incident to claim sixth with current series points leader Logan Seavey, Andrew Layser, Zeb Wise and Dalby completing the top ten.

After Seavey set a new track record of 10.685 seconds in qualifying, Tanner Carrick, Klaasmeyer and Boat each scored heat race wins.

The Riverside Chevrolet Midwest Midget Championship presented by Westin Packaged Meats and Schmidt’s Sanitation wraps up with Saturday night’s card that gets under way with qualifying at 6:30 p.m. and racing at 7:00 p.m.  The JayHusker Non-Wing Micro Sprints round out Saturday’s tilt.

RACING-RAIN-FIREWORKS AT FLAT ROCK-RAIN LOSES

Flat Rock, MI-July 6, 2019:
Mother Nature once again tried its best to stop the action at Flat Rock Speedway Saturday night for the Firecracker 150 and Monroe Superstore Fireworks show. A pair of rain delays slowed things, but the show was completed and the nice crowd on hand enjoyed the Fireworks finale'. Eric Lee, Ethan Stadniczuk, Jerry Farmer, Billy Earley and Mason Surgeoner took feature wins and visited the Monroe Asphalt Winner's Circle.

 
The first rain began to fall just as qualifying was about to start, backing things up. Each class drew for their starting position for the feature events in the features-only format. Things clicked off in good fashion until the rain came back on lap 27 of the Late Model feature race. The track crew once again went to work and dried the surface and the race card was completed, along with the fireworks show.

 
The ARCA Moran Chevrolet Late Model 50 lap feature saw Steve Cronenwett Jr. dart into the lead at the green. The rain stopped the action on lap 27, with Steve still in command. When the race resumed, Steve held the point but had pressure from Eric Lee. Eric dipped under Steve on lap 34 and zipped to the win. Frank Jiovani was in second on the last lap, but a mechanical issue slowed the #45, allowing Harold Fair Jr. to grab the runner-up spot at the stripe. Jiovani was hung on for third, Cronenwett Jr. was fourth and Stan Yee Jr. fifth, followed by Craig Everage, Paul Pelletier, Dennis Strickland, Hayden Sprague, Connor Zbozien, Chris Benson, Steve Hawes, Joe Hawes and Dan Trosen Jr.

 
The 20 car field for the ARCA DTS Drive Train Specialists Street Stock A Main saw great competition throughout the pack. Rob Randa took the lead at the start and had company as youngster Ethan Stadniczuk gave chase. The duo battled side by side for several laps. On a lap 20 restart, Ethan charged strong in the outside lane, taking the number 1 spot. The duo to watch was Greg Studt, who started 19th, and Scott Selmi, who started 17th, as they picked their way to the front of the pack. Stadniczuk was gone as he sailed to the checkered flag, the first Street Stock win for the rookie. Jim Froling was second in the #26, third was Studt with a great run, in his tracks for 4th was Selmi in another great charge, while Randa held on for fifth. Rob Moore Jr. raced his way to sixth, David Liaeff was seventh, Kyle Worley eighth, Nick Shanks ninth and Guy Fire tenth. Clarity Patton, Jeff Metdepenningen, Max Fair, Caleb Barron, Vaughn Chambless, Chris Diovardi, Lonnie York, Trevor Farmer, Landon Schuster and Doug Litogot were next in line at the finish.

 
Jerry Farmer led all 20 circuits to win the ARCA DTS Drive Train Specialists Street Stock B Main race. Ian Jezylo tracked down the leader in the late stages and grabbed second, Wilburn Parks was also on the move and took third, L.J. Farmer fourth and Taylor Papineau fifth. Gary Navarre, Rich Abel, Adam Jezylo, Cody Hall and Leroy Farmer completed the top ten.

 
An exciting 2 car battle for the top spot ensued for all 30 laps of the ARCA Victory Lane Quick Oil Change Figure 8 feature, the Michigan Figure 8 Championship. Billy Earley held back the hard charging Jeremy Vanderhoof to take the big win. The lead pair began the battle right from the green flag, dodging intersection traffic and slipping and sliding on the slick track. Earley held on for the victory, Vanderhoof was second, Jeremy Miller third, early leader Joe Vanderhoof fourth and Dennis Whisman fifth, followed by Dennis Whisman Jr., Ethen Lambert, James Vanderhoof, Dave Lambert, Stephanie Bradley, Jacob Lee and Jimmy Thiel.

 
Mason Surgener topped Joel Smith and Killian McMann to win the 12 lap Bandolero feature race.

 
Saturday, July 13 is R & M Recycling Autograph Night at Flat Rock Speedway! A big night of racing will follow the on-track autograph session, which begins at 6:15. Race time is 7 p.m. The ARCA DTS Drive Train Specialists Street Stocks, ARCA Victory Lane Quick Oil Change Figure 8's, the Vault Antiques and Treasures ARCA Factory Stocks, the ARCA Late Model Sportsman and Bandoleros will provide the on-track action.

 

 

Sheppard Doubles His Pleasure; Damery Gets First Late Model Feature
By BZ

 

(Macon, IL) Tommy Sheppard, Jr. has been in a zone this season in the BillingsleyRewards.com Modifieds. The defending champion has been taking top five finishes and checkered flags most of the season to sustain his points lead through the summer. That would continue Saturday night at Macon Speedway. Coming through a restart on the restart on lap 13, Zach Rhodes was in control of the race leading all laps on the way to 20 but coming through the opening turns of the restart, Sheppard, who was third, leapfrogged his way to the front bypassing both second place Alan Crowder and Rhodes to the top spot. From then on, Sheppard was able to cross the line first and pick up the win.

 

In a special visit from the Midwest Stock Car Tour as part of the Archer's Alley Street Stocks, Sheppard climbed into a Street Stock to race in the 3rd Annual Dean Garland Classic. From the sixth starting position, Sheppard was running behind Westville's Lance Evans and Blue Mound's Bobby Beiler. As the 40-lap event was pick up steam and momentum, so was Sheppard. Evans fell out of the race with flat right rear tire and that left Sheppard to race with Darrell Dick for the lead. Lapped traffic slowed Dick down from being able to make it a close finish and that left Sheppard with daylight heading to the finish line.

 

Thanks to a dice roll and invertion, Blake Damery and Donny Koehler started in the front row of the Decatur Buildling Trades Pro Late Models feature. That meant Dakota Ewing would start fifth and have to work his way through the field to earn another feature win. Damery was a lock at the bottom of the track as the second-year Pro Late Model driver led solidly for the first 14 laps. Ewing started his charge and caught up to Koehler from the top side and eventually take second place. Damery was caught in a three-way race for the lead as Ewing and Koehler made moves to close the gap. Damery would lose the lead to Ewing on lap 17 but a spinout created a restart. Ewing looked poised to win again but Damery did not quit running his race at the bottom. A slip-up by Ewing on the white flag lap set up Damery's pass on the bottom of the fourth turn and a photo finish between Ewing and Damery stalled the action. Video evidence confirmed that Damery crossed the line before Ewing and was awarded the checkered flag. While in the victory lane interview, Ewing came up to Damery and offered his handshake in stellar sportsmanship.

 

The Sportsman division ran its own 40-lap feature Saturday night in topless style. The first lap was a coin toss between Dennis Vandermeersch and Wes Odell. After that, Vandermeersch set the pace and the tone for the race running the high groove. The bottom started to catch on better with Tim Bedinger and Bobby Beiler working ahead to pass Odell and try to close in for the lead. Vandermeersch was a solid lock at the front of the race and throughout.

 

Nick Justice ran a cautionless race to the checkered flag in the Neal Tire & Auto Pro Modified group. Newcomer Kyle Helmick stayed just ahead of Tim Hancock to make sure the many time feature winner would not be in the running for the checkered flag on this night. Justice has battled ups and downs all season with his new Pro Modified and finally looked like he figured it out in the 15-lapper.

 

Luke Verardi and Gabe Verardi finished one and two in the special attraction visit from the Micro Sprints Presented by Bailey Chassis.

 

The night was finished off with the Hornets and Brady Reed taking another win.

 

The night of racing was great and perhaps even better was the yearly return of the monster truck Raminator. The Mark & Tim Hall machine wowed the crowd and crushed cars in the center of the track during the Bob Brady Auto Mall Night of racing. It is definitely one of the most unique visits of the season.

 

Macon Speedway continues the 2019 summer with racing next Saturday night. It will be the Fireman's Ball & First Responders Night. If firemen and first responders come to the track with proper ID, they will be admitted for free. The schedule will consist of Decatur Building Trades Pro Late Models, BillingsleyRewards.com Modifieds, Neal Tire & Auto Pro Modifieds, Archer's Alley Street Stocks, Hornets and Micro Sprints Presented by Bailey Chassis.

Kofoid pads AFCS and Fremont Speedway 410 point leads with win; Miller sweeps AFCS 305 weekend; Brooks gets exciting truck victory
 
By Brian Liskai
 
FREMONT, Ohio - Michael "Buddy" Kofoid has adapted to racing in the Midwest very well. He proved it again Saturday at Fremont Speedway, winning his second 410 sprint feature at The Track That Action Built in dominating fashion on Crown Battery Night.
 
Early afternoon rain made the racing surface much different than the previous weeks but it was no problem for Kofoid who pads his lead not only in the Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprint standings at Fremont, but also the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series (AFCS) Presented by the Baumann Auto Group. Kofoid, 17-years-old from Penngrove, California, took the lead from Chris Andrews on Lap five and survived three cautions and a red, winning by nearly four seconds.
 
"On the slick track we need to work on it but we're getting better. As long as we are racing I don't really care what the track is. As long as it's racing and we can pass someone. I'm a little winded after this one...not as much as the first one but to get my second one with the AFCS is cool. One of my bucket item lists was an All Star win and was able to do that so my next one is an outlaw race and hopefully at the Brad Doty Classic. We've been rolling good at Attica, we just can't get lady luck on our side. I can't thank Ed Neumeister Racing, Gill Construction, CK Plumbing, Ray Brooks and the Linders and everyone for giving me a great opportunity," said Kofoid in the Engine Pro Victory Lane.
 
Thanks to race night sponsor Crown Battery of Fremont, a $100 was added to every feature position in the 410 A-main and extra money was also added for the 305 sprints and dirt truck features. The Alex Burkett Australian Pursuit also carried a $1,000 victory check and Waterville, Ohio's Travis Philo took that loot.There were other added financial incentives throughout the night as well thanks to Crown Battery.
 
Fremont, Ohio's Jamie Miller continued his hot streak in the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprints. Miller scored his third straight feature win having taken the victory a week ago at Fremont and this past Friday at Attica Raceway Park as well as Saturday at Fremont. Miller took the lead from Kyle Peters with just four laps to go and drove to his 22nd career win at Fremont.
 
The sweep of the KS Sales & Service AFCS Presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales also puts Miller, the 2018 FAST 305 champion, back into contention for that $2,500 pay day at season's end.
 
"We were a little tight in the feature and could have been freed up a little more. I didn't know if I was going to get to him (Peters) and then I saw him slow down in lapped traffic and took advantage," said Miller beside his Sonic Hauling/Pen Monster.com/Brad’s Barbecue/Napa of Attica/Avon by Angie/Griff’s Engines/Color Street by Jaime Hennig/Reedtown Tavern/Fostoria Mod Shop/York Carpet Outlet/Crown Battery/Branham Builders/Imprint Logo/Phil Rister Racing backed #26.
 
The Burmeister Trophy Dirt Truck feature was marred with several cautions but during green flag racing the action was terrific with seven trucks battling for the lead throughout the 20 laps. Wayne, Ohio's John Brooks, a two time limited late model Fremont champion, took the lead on lap 11 and survived three cautions and challenges from Kent Brewer the last four laps to score his 9th career victory at Fremont.
 
"That was pretty rough in the beginning. We were trading paint. I don't think we could have made it much longer...we have a hole in the radiator. That was fun...a blast though. I want to thank Jeff Bacock. We threw this thing together with a bunch of spare parts basically but we're having a blast. I have to thank Chris and my wife and my baby is here...first race she's been too and I have to thank Crown Battery for the extra money they put up," said Brooks beside his Best Performance Motorsports/Craig Miller Trucking/KS Sales & Service/Turner Electric/Speedway Bar & Grill/Dave Story Equipment & Repair/Keyser Manufacturing/Bulk Material Lift backed machine.
 
Kelsey Ivy and Chris Andrews brought the field to green for the 30-lap 410 sprint feature with Andrews gaining the lead over fourth starter Kofoid, Ivy, Hunter Schuerenberg, DJ Foos, Nate Dussel and Tyler Gunn. RJ Jacobs spun and Ryan Broughton stopped with a flat tire after a lap was completed and Ivy had a mechanical issue ending her run. On the restart Andrews continued to lead Kofoid, Schuerenberg, Dussel and Foos
 
Just after the fourth lap was completed Kofoid diamond off the turn two corner and drove under Andrews for the lead just before the caution flew for a Josh Turner spin. When the green reappeared Kofoid continued to lead Andrews, Schuerenberg, Dussel and Foos when Cale Stinson stopped on the high side of turn three. A lap later and Jacobs once again brought out the caution..

Kofoid set a blistering pace when the green came back out, encountering lapped traffic just five laps following the caution with his lead 3.5 seconds over Andrews. Schuerenberg was able to grab second on lap 18 but Andrews refused to give up. Schuerenberg took a tumble in turn three on lap 19 but was uninjured. It wiped out a nearly five second lead for Kofoid. With 11 laps to go the running order on the restart was Kofoid, Andrews, Dussel, Gunn, 18th starter Cap Henry, Foos and Travis Philo
 
On the restart Dussel drove into second but Kofoid had pulled away to a three second lead just three laps following the green flag. After taking the white flag, Dussel clipped an infield tire and bent a steering component and dropped to sixth at the checkers. Kofoid scored the win over Andrews, Gunn, Henry, and Foos.
 
Peters and Jimmy McGrath paced the field for the 25-lap 305 A-main with Peters jumping into the lead over McGrath, Kyle Capodice, Miller, Paul Weaver and Luke Griffith. Weaver spun on lap two with Griffith going to the work area to change a tire. On the restart Miller drove into third while Peters continued to lead McGrath. Justin Adams brought out the caution on lap six with Peters leading McGrath, Miller, Capodice, Dustin Rall, Brandon Moore, Alvin Roepke, Larry Kingseed and 16th starter John Ivy.
 
With 10 laps in Peters' lead was 2.3 seconds as Miller took second from McGrath while Ivy had moved into fourth. Zeth Sabo spun on lap 11 with the running order Peters, Miller, McGrath, Ivy, Capodice, Roepke, Rall and Moore. When the green flew so did Peters as Miller worked to keep pace while Ivy took third. With 10 laps to go the car on the move was 19th starter Steve Rando who had moved into seventh.
 
As the laps clicked off it appeared Peters car was having some sort of issue as his lead evaporated. Peters and Miller split a lapped car with four laps to go with Miller taking the lead. Roepke and McGrath were fighting for fourth when they tangled with a lapped car with four laps to go. With a clear track Miller pulled away the final four laps for the win over Peters, ivy, Capodice and Rando.
 
The dirt truck A-main featured seven cautions including one for leader Jimmy McGrath Jr. on lap three and another for leader Jeff Ward on lap nine. At one point in the feature there were seven trucks running nose to tail and side by side for the lead. Brooks, who started 11th, took the lead from Kyle Lagrou on lap 11 and survived three restarts the final nine circuits to hold off Kent Brewer for the win. Shawn Valenti, Jim Holcomb and Brad Stuckey rounded out the top five.
 
Fremont Speedway will be back in action Saturday, July 13 for an all-sprint-car spectacular on Root's Poultry/Fort Ball Pizza Palace Throw Back Night. Racing will be the AFCS 410 and 305 sprints ($1,000 to win for the 305s) and the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series non-wing sprints. It's "throw back night" and fans are encouraged to wear their oldest racing t-shirts. Also, when fans buy one Root's shredded chicken sandwich or a slice of Fort Ball Pizza they will get a second sandwich or slice of pizza free.

Carmen Odum Edges Older Sister Morgan for Victory in Summer Speedweeks Opener

 

PELETIER, NC – Summer Speedweeks at Bobby Watson’s Carteret County Speedway kicked off in spectacular fashion on Saturday night with a photofinish between siblings Carmen and Morgan Odum in the first feature of the Firecracker Clash presented by Solid Rock Carriers.

 

Carmen Odum, 13, from Jacksonville, North Carolina, started on the pole in the Jr. Mini Cup portion of Saturday night’s Firecracker Clash and led through the duration of the early laps.  However, she was slowed up when trying to pass Steven Ferrell to put him a lap down, which allowed older sister Morgan Odum, 14, from Jacksonville, North Carolina, to slip by in the midway stage of the race.  Carmen came roaring back in the final laps, retaking the lead and holding Morgan off in one of the closest finishes in Carteret County Speedway history.

 

“I knew I was a little bit faster than her,” the younger Odum sister said in victory lane.  “That 13 car did slow me down.  I didn’t expect to go all the way up that high, but I did, and then I just went underneath of him.  It feels good to win again here.  It’s been so long and I’m so excited.  It was hard trying to get back around her because, I was trying, and I just got underneath of her.  My little extra speed helped.  I’m excited and glad to be back here in my home track.”

 

After the race, Morgan Odum said her car just was not quick enough to hold her younger sister off.

 

“I really wanted to win but I just know that she had the faster car,” the older Odum sister stated.  “She was going to get back around me whether I blocked her or not.  It was really fun, and I had a great car, but it just wasn’t fast enough.  I gave it my hardest and tried to beat her, but it wasn’t enough.”

 

Caleb Braswell finished in the third position while Scotty Benford and Alexis Steffan rounded out the top-five.

 

Goldsboro, North Carolina driver Dylan Newsome celebrated his 21st birthday in style, in victory lane after edging Travis Truett in a photofinish to close out the Firecracker Clash.

 

Newsome, who turned 21 on Friday, started in the second position but faded in the early laps of the Charger feature.  In the final laps, Newsome raced his way into contention.  When a late race caution set up a five lap dash to the finish, Newsome propelled himself up to second and battled with Travis Truett in the closing laps – making the move on the last lap and completing the pass for the win as the two came to the checkered flag.

 

“I slipped in turn one and door-slammed the crap out of him,” Newsome explained.  “I didn’t mean to.  We both came off turn two sliding and came off turn four sliding.  This is a great time.  It’s awesome being down here and going home with one piece.  This win means a whole lot.”

 

While Truett led the most laps in the race, he was ultimately forced to settle for a heartbreaking runner-up result.  Truett was disappointed in himself for allowing Newsome the opportunity to get by him on the final lap of the race.

 

“Can’t mess up on the last lap of the race,” Truett said.  “We worked hard all day.  We were junk when we got here, never been here before.  Got a late restart and it falls on my shoulder, I screwed up.  One to go, I got in too hard getting into turn one and he got under me.  Point the finger on me.  I’ve got to take the blame on that one.”

Chris Burns finished third while J.R. Goode and Jonny Szewezuk finished fourth and fifth respectively.

 

Brandon Clements dominated in the 75 lap Limited Late Model feature to pick up his second consecutive victory over T.J.  Barron, Boo Boo Dalton, Tyler Horne, and Stacy Puryear. 

 

Canadian driver Cory Hall led wire-to-wire in Legends to score the win over a frantic four-car battle for second which ultimately went to Jordan Lamothe.  Brian Sullivan finished third while Brenton Irving and Emily Day rounded out the top-five.

 

Justin Thompson picked up the win over his father, B.J. Thompson, in a photofinish in the Champ Kart feature.  Andrew Jackson picked up his third victory of the season in U-CAR competition over Steve Sullivan and Zac Reimer.  Travis Miller dominated in the Sportsman’s Wholesale Mini-Stock feature, prevailing over Kris Hetu and Stephen Sanders, while Justin Hall was victorious in the Mini Cup race over Chase Singletary and Charles Pudenz.

 

Summer Speedweeks continues on Saturday, July 13th with the Solid Rock Carriers Crystal Coast 125 presented by WITN-TV and Moore’s Old-Tyme Barbeque, Chicken and Seafood.  The Crystal Coast 125 will be headlined by the CARS Late Model Stock Tour which currently boasts an impressive 26 car pre-entry list.  Among the drivers entered to compete are JR Motorsports driver Josh Berry, 2016 track champion Chris Burns, 2017 track champion Tyler Matthews, three-time Carteret winner Eric Winslow, two-time Carteret winner Layne Riggs, popular fan-favorite Mini Tyrrell and last year’s CARS Tour champion Bobby McCarty.  The Carolina Mini-Stock Challenge and the Charger division will also be in action next Saturday night.

 

Tickets for the Crystal Coast 125 will be $20 at the gate while kids 10 and under are admitted free.

Hohlbein and Jessup grab first career wins, Horstman continues dominance at Limaland.

July 5, 2019

Limaland Motorsports Park celebrated the Independence Day weekend by opening the gates for Firecracker Friday, presented by T&D Interiors.  No. 17 Jared Horstman picked up another feature win in K&L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invader competition, with No. 11H Mike Hohlbein grabbing his first career feature win in Northwest Physical Therapy UMP Modifies, and No. 57 Jeff Jessup of Union City, IN winning his first career feature in Bud Thunderstock action.

Kicking off the night were the K&L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invaders in their 25 lap A Main. No 22H Randy Hannagan, and No. 5W Jeff Williams would lead the field to green with Hannagan getting the early advantage.  Horstman quickly dispatched Williams and set his sights on Hannagan, but the caution flag would wave before the battle could begin.  On the restart, Hannagan would continue to lead with Horstman in tow until lap 11, when Horstman executed a slide job in turns 1 and 2 to take the lead for good. Hannagan fell to a full straghtaway behind Horstman before the caution flag waved one final time on lap 23, for the No. 49 of Shawn Dancer coming to a stop in turn 1. Horstman would power away on the restart for the victory over Hannagan, with No. 12S Jimmy Stinson finishing 3rd after starting 11th.  No 28H Hud Horton was 4th and No. 23 Devon Dobie completed the top 5.

In Northwest Physical Therapy UMP Modified action, Mike Hohlbein, and No. 22T Tony Anderson would make up the front row, with the pair battling for the lead for the first 2 laps.  Hohlbein would grab the point and try to get away, but caution would fly on lap 3 for No. 7 Drew Smith coming to a stop on the backstretch.  On the restart, Hohlbein would hold off Anderson and methodically stretch out his lead, winning by a full straightaway over Anderson. No. 10L Nathan Loney would finish 3rd after a great closing laps battle with No. 11* Kyle Moore who finished 4th, and Ryan Sutter rounded out the top 5.

In Bud Thunderstock feature action, No. J2 Rob Trent and No. 57 Jeff Jessup would bring the field to green.  Trent would grab the early lead but Jessup would make his way past. Jessup survived 5 cautions including a final lap yellow flag to pick up his first career feature win over No. 463 Daniel Sanchez, No. 22T Tony Anderson, Trent and No. 7C Jordan Conover.

Limaland Motorsports Park is closed next Friday July 12th, but will reopen on Friday July 19th for the UNOH 22nd Anniversary presented by Stolly Insurance Group.  In action will be the K&L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invaders, Northwest Physical Therapy UMP Modifieds, and Bud Thunderstocks.

Gordy Gundaker repeats as Herald & Review 100 champ
Moweaqua's Shannon Babb led until lap 98
By Matthew Flaten (Herald & Review) 

MACON — Before the fireworks finished off Independence Day and the night of racing at Macon Speedway, there was a bang on lap 98 of the Herald & Review 100. 

Race leader, Moweaqua's Shannon Babb, going for his record sixth H&R 100 race win, sustained race-ending front wheel damage as he slammed into the car he was attempting to lap.

Then two-time winner Bobby Pierce Jr. crossed the finish line and appeared to win, but a yellow flag brought the drivers back to finish the 100th lap, and last year's winner — Gordy Gundaker — emerged as the repeat champion. 

For Babb, it was a bitter way to lose. 

"Racing down here is always tough and I know what to expect," Babb said. "It's going to be good hard tight racing and it always is. We always tell ourselves that we need to try to get to the end. We got to the end but we got in a bad position there and I just knew something was going to come. 

"I was out of tire, out of fuel and struggling there a little bit and then I got into a bad position." 

Babb had grabbed the lead before the first lap was completed and remained there for nearly all of the other 98 laps. 

"Our car was good, it really was," Babb said. "When you are here you try to get yourself out front and stay out of trouble. If you get the lead early it makes your race a whole lot easier and that's what I tried to do so I could pick through traffic. I got to the end but a couple guys were running just as strong with me." 

Though Pierce, who won the race in 2016 and 2017, crossed the finish line with the checkered flag waving, but was denied the win because of a yellow caution flag was called for a stalled car on the track. 

On the restart, Gundaker emerged seemingly out of nowhere after spending much of the race deep in the pack to pass Pierce on the final turn for the win. 

"I thought if we can get out of here with a top five finish, maybe a top three, that I was going to think about it as another win," Gundaker said. "But you get those yellows at the end and you find a way. 

"I knew in the last lap I wasn't as good in turns one and two as I was in turns three and four and I hoped to make a decent lap down there and hopefully Bobby would screw up. I know that he usually doesn't make many mistakes, but he did there and when I came out of turn four, I couldn't believe I had him." 

Gundaker's win last year was also come-from-behind and elicited an emotional reaction. 

"I'm speechless, I can't believe I've won the Herald & Review 100 two years in a row," Gundaker said. "I know it had to be a a hell of a race from the stands but you should have seen it from my standpoint. 

"I couldn't believe getting a yellow with two to go and then green and white flags together. I can't even explain this." 

A second H&R 100 title is just a little bit sweeter than the first, Gundaker said. 

"It's hard to compare them," he said. "That first one was so sweet, never having won a summer nationals race before but this second one, doing it on the last lap and passing a guy like Bobby who has won two of these and to put our name up there and win again back-to-back is absolutely unbelievable." 

Although the final three laps were yellow-filled, overall the race was fairly clean, with just a handful of cautions. Babb's veteran experience on the track was clear as he was unafraid to go three-cars wide around the turns to make a pass. The aggressive give-and-take between Babb and the second-place Pierce led to Babb having his car examined for damage on two cautions. 

"I had a guy working on me a little bit that got in on me a couple of times. I kind of felt that and so I had it looked at," Babb said. 

Rain threatened the race throughout the evening, so the H&R 100 was moved up as the second feature of the evening. Before it, the DIRTcar Summit Modified Nationals 25-lap race saw Mike Harrison win his fourth race of the tour this year. Tyler Nicely finished second, Nick Hoffman was third and Tommy Shepard was fourth. Following the completion of the H&R 100, the Pro Mods took the track and Mount Olive's Tim Hancock picked up the victory. Decatur drivers Nick Justice and Billy Nail finished seventh and eighth, respectively. 

For Gundaker, he firmly believes the racing gods were smiling down on him this Fourth of July. 

"We had a race at Fairbury and I was running second and I got a flat tire with 13 laps to go. Sometimes the breaks fall your way and sometimes they don't. Tonight we caught a break catching that yellow on the last lap and finding a way to make it happen. That's the way it is sometimes but these wins don't come easy no matter what," he said.  

 
Macon Speedway will be back in action on Saturday, July 6 with Bob Brady Auto Mall night featuring the RAMINATOR Monster Truck, a Sportsman Topless 40, the MSCT Street Stock Dean Garland Classic, and five other divisions.

 

Gardner, Conley, Stambaugh win Hewitt Classic at Waynesfield

WAYNESFIELD, OHIO (Wednesday, July 3, 2019) - That first sprint car win is always memorable, but for Milford, Ohio's Cody Gardner it came in one of the region's most coveted event - the 11th Annual Jack Hewitt Classic presented by GROB Systems.
 
Gardner not only scored his first ever sprint car win, but he did it in dominating fashion, leading all 30 laps Wednesday at Waynesfield Raceway Park for the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS) win. Ironically Gardner's wife and father-in-law run the series and his baby daughter got to join him in victory lane.
 
"When I first started racing sprint cars this is where I got my start. I've always loved this place. We've always run good here but have had bad luck. To get my first win here especially it being the Jack Hewitt Classic...someone I looked up to because of the way he drove. I know we had a good car...it was easy to drive. We burned up a tire a little in the heat race and dad told me to be easy on the tires but I never really heard anybody or saw anybody so I knew if I just hit my marks we were alright. I have to thank my dad. All the years we've been doing this...we've been racing together 27 years now and he's never given up on me. All the times I wanted to give up he never has. He works harder than anyone I know so we can do this. I want to thank Grey Wolf Transportation, R&R Auto Body, Wells Equipment and Auto Repair, Performance Powdercoating, Ashford Motorsports and Advanced Racing Suspensions," said Gardner.
 
Vienna, West Virginia's Cale Conley faced the possibility of not having a sprint car ride about two months ago as his former car owner decided to step back. Conley and his family put together their own team and it has paid off in a huge way. Conley got the cautions when he needed them to stay out of lapped traffic and held off several challenges during late race restarts and led all 30 laps of the NAPA Auto Parts FAST Series winged 410 feature worth $4,000.
 
"The car was awesome in clean air...made my job easy. But I struggled in lapped traffic as soon as I got to some dirty air. I really stalled out and couldn't pick a lane. I'll take the luck with the cautions falling. I knew our restarts were pretty good. Jack Hewitt is a legend and all of hope to have a little Jack Hewitt in us. So it's really cool to be here and win his race. I want to thank Rick Salisbury...it's his daughter's birthday today so we will dedicate this one to her. My niece was born yesterday. I have some really good momentum in my life right now...this is awesome. I'm living the dream," said Conley beside his Merchant Services LTD/AD Source Media backed #3C.
 
Lima, Ohio's Max Stambaugh came out on top of an exciting battle with his teammate Jared Horstman and Tim Allison to claim the K&L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invaders 360 victory in front of a standing-room-only home town crowd. The 25 lap feature went non-stop with Stambaugh taking the lead with eight laps to go.
 
"I want to thank Jared Horstman for putting this car together for me. My brother-in-law is back turning the wrenches and my buddy Jason is here...it's just back to having fun and I like it," said Stambaugh beside his M&W Construction/Ottoville Lumber/Kountry Kennels/K&L Ready Mix/Dale's Concrete/Schnipke Brothers Tire/Miller Precision/Vorst Paving/Miller Construction/Hume Supply, Elida Depot/Troy Rampe Construction backed machine.
 
The 11th Annual Jack Hewitt Classic Presented by GROB Systems was only the second event to be held at Waynesfield Raceway Park in 2019 under new promoter Shane Helms. A lot of improvements were made to the facility over the past couple of months including all new aluminum bleachers and new fencing. The event faced several hurdles including a lot of rain Tuesday evening.
 
"First I have to thank GROB Systems, Buckeye Machine, North Baltimore Custom Cuts, LiUNA Local 574, K&L Ready Mix, Helms & Son Excavating, Kistler Racing Products and the Fremont Fence Company for all their support for this race and this track. Also we were blessed to have Jack Hewitt as a part of this. He was so gracious with his time with the fans and helping us," Helms said. "All in all we have a lot to fix as a track team. We were tested and we will get better. I can't thank all the fans...to look up in those stands and see that turn-out is amazing and very much appreciated. All the race teams coming out to support us means a ton. The future of Waynesfield is very bright."
 
In the 30-lap BOSS feature Gardner jumped into the lead at the drop of the green with last year's Hewitt Classic winner Lee Underwood, Mike Miller, Matt Cooley, Dustin Ingle and Steve Irwin giving chase.Gardner steadily pulled away as Underwood, Cooley, Irwin and Miller battled hard for the runner-up spot. Ingle stopped on lap nine for the only caution of the feature.
 
On the ensuing restart Underwood pressured Gardner to his outside but Gardner withstood the challenges. At the half-way point the cars on the move were Kory Crabtree and Thomas Meseraull. After a spirited battle with Irwin, Crabtree took second on lap 14 but faced challenges from Irwin, Underwood and Meseraull. That allowed Gardner to once again pull away while the runner-up spot changed hands several times around the track every lap. When the checkers flew Gardner held a comfortable advantage as Underwood rallied late for second followed by Meseraull, Crabtree and Irwin.
 
Parker Price-Miller and Conley brought the field to green for the 30-lap FAST feature and the pair ran side-by-side over the first hand full of laps with Buddy Kofoid, Stuart Brubaker, Stambaugh and Lee Jacobs giving chase. Just as Conley caught the back of the pack and his lead evaporated as Price-Miller closed, Joey Saldana crashed on lap 10. It was not a good night for Saldana to say the least, as that was his second flip of the night but thankfully he was unharmed.
 
Now with clean air and a clear track, Conley pulled away when the green came back out. A Tyler Gunn spin on lap 14 kept the challengers close though as Conley pulled away on the restart with Price-Miller, Kofoid, Stambaugh and Brubaker still in pursuit. With 10 laps to go the car on the move was 19th starter Cap Henry who had charged to fifth.
 
Racing again into heavy lapped traffic with seven laps to go, Conley and  Price-Miller split a lapped car in turns three and four battling for the lead but it came to a halt when Aryton Olsen tumbled; he was unhurt. On the ensuing restart RJ Jacobs flipped and he too was uninjured.
 
Once again with a clear track Conley pulled away on the restart and drove to the victory over Kofoid who used the last restart to drive around Price-Miller who had to settle for third. Henry and Lee Jacobs rounded out the top five.
 
Allison and Stambaugh brought the field to green for the 25-lap NRA feature with Allison gaining the advantage over Stambaugh, Horstman and Kyle Sauder. Utilizing the cushion, Stambaugh began pressuring Horstman for second as they stayed within a car length of Allison, who caught the back of the pack by lap 11 which allowed Stambaugh to steal second. With nine laps to go Stambaugh had the momentum and pounced, taking the lead a circuit later.
 
By lap 20 Horstman grabbed second and gave chase to Stambaugh while a great battle ensured for third involving Horstman, Sauder, Chase Dunham, Randy Hannagan and Ricky Peterson. Stambaugh hit his marks perfectly and went on to the win over Horstman, Hannagan (from 12th), Allison and Sauder. The battle for fifth saw  Dunham tumble after taking the checkers; he was not hurt.
 
The next event at Waynesfield Raceway Park is Friday, Aug. 2 for the Rick Ferkel Classic. There will be winged 410 sprints in competition and other yet-to-be-determined classes.

JEFF STRUNK WINS MOD THRILLER AS GRANDVIEW DEFEATS MOTHER NATURE TUESDAY NIGHT, JULY 2

 

 

BECHTELSVILLE, PA   (July 2, 2019) – Mother Nature offered a reprieve to race fans Tuesday Night at Grandview Speedway, providing just enough clear weather for Norman, Oklahoma’s Christopher Bell to claim the 410 Sprint Car main event, while Boyertown, Pennsylvania’s Jeff Strunk scored the win in the Modified portion of the double-header event.  A big crowd turned out for the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill event attracting a field of thirty 410 sprint cars and thirty-eight modifieds.   The battles were plentiful all night but the biggest story was how the Grandview Speedway track crew fought back after  a thunder stormed drenched the speedway surface.   The outstanding  work by the track crew with help from the modifieds quickly returned the speedway back into race ready conditions after a one hour and fifteen minute rain delay.  As the checker flag fell on the modified feature, the rain once again began to fall, but the show in its entirety was presented. 

Bell used up every inch of the racetrack on his way to a $10,000 payday as part of Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek.   The was Bells first ever Thunder on the Hill Racing Series victory.

“I had a hard time figuring out where the car worked best, I just kept moving around,” Bell explained in post-race victory lane ceremonies.  “I almost crashed a couple of times.”

Pole-sitter Lucas Wolfe and Bell raced down to the drop of the green, but action slowed quickly for a six-car tangle that sidelined Pennsylvania Speedweek point leader, Freddie Rahmer.

Bell didn’t bat an eye on the ensuing restart racing around Wolfe and disappearing from the competition – a man on a mission, Bell encountered lapped traffic on the 8th circuit dodging slower cars with his sight set on the winner’s purse.

James McFadden, aboard the Kasey Kahne Racing No. 9 machine, slid passed Wolfe on the 12th lap and it didn’t take long for him to rope in Bell and challenge for the lead.  The red flag flew just prior to the halfway when Jessie Attard got upside down in turn three.

Bell had his hands full on the restart with McFadden and Lance Dewease right on his rear bumper.

“I struggled just passed halfway, I used every inch of the race track and tried to block those guys behind me,” Bell explained.

McFadden would make one last-ditch effort for the victory, but ultimately settled for second, Lance Dewease finished in third, Lucas Wolfe in fourth, and past Thunder Cup winner Aaron Reutzel finished in fifth.

Christopher Bell’s sweep included the Quick Time with a lap of 11.617.  Heat Races were won by Aaron Reutzel, Lucas Wolfe, Danny Dietrich, and Kyle Reinhardt.  Mark Smith scored the win in the B-Main.

Brett Kressley and Mike Gular started on the front row of the NASCAR 358 Modified feature event, with Gular gaining control of the top spot.  Gular dominated the first half of the 30-lap event clicking laps off with a strong contingent of Modified drivers behind him.

The top three competitors were door-to-door in the closing portion of the event, with Gular, Kressley, and Strunk all moving to the point in a single lap.  Strunk would score the upper hand threading three-wide between Gular and Kressley.

Strunk led the final ten laps of the feature event with Kressley well within striking distance and riding the rear bumper of #126 on the final lap.   Kressley rolled home in second, Mike Gular finished in third, Craig VonDohren in fourth, and Duane Howard rounding out the top five.   Kressley worked his way to victory lane, but this time to congratulate the great run by Strunk.   The thirty lap modified win was worth $3,000.

NASCAR Modified Heat Races were won by Don Norris, Jr., Steve Young, Brett Kressley, and Ryan Watt.  Consolations were won by Craig Whitmoyer and Glenn Strunk.

Rain delayed the start of the event with 410 Sprint Car Time Trials finally rolling off at 8:45 PM, the rain fell again at the drop of the checkered flag.

The 30th Anniversary season of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series continues on Tuesday, July 30 at Grandview Speedway with the USAC NOS Energy Drink Midget National Championship event dubbed Ken Brenn Midget Masters.  NASCAR 358 Modifieds are also on the card.

SHEPPARD SCORES FLAT ROCK ENDURO WIN

 

Flat Rock, MI-June 29, 2019:
Second-generation driver Derrick Sheppard notched the win in The Vault Antiques and Treasures Enduro 250 Saturday night at Flat Rock Speedway, sponsored by Jet's Pizza. The track also hosted Whelen First Responder Night Saturday. All first responders-police, fire, medical and emergency personnel were admitted free to Saturday's race card. Rob Randa survived to win the DTS Drive Train Specialists Street Stock A Main, LJ Farmer took the B Main and Troy Hoffman won the Steve Martin Memorial for the MCR Dwarf Cars.

 
Sheppard, the 2018 Enduro Series champion, took the lead in a great battle with fast qualifier Ethan Stadniczuk (13:928) just before the half-way mark of the 250 lap contest, which went all green flag and was completed in 1 hour and 3 minutes. Ethan dominated the 25 car field from the early stages as he got by Ed Case and built up a sizable lead, but Sheppard whittled the gap and edged by the leader. Ethan came right back to take the top spot, then tangled with Rick Bennett, allowing Derrick to assume control once again. Stadniczuk righted his #20 and continued on, as Sheppard sailed to the win. Stadniczuk took second, Kyle Metdepenningen third, Robb Remick fourth and Case fifth. Jacob Thomas, Nathan Sprotberry, Troy Brehmer, Jimmy Rae and Cody Remick completed the top ten.

 
The Street Stock A Main turned into a wreck-fest from the start. On the original green, the front row of Clarity Patton and Kyle Worley tangled, stacking up the entire 19 car field. With plenty of damage to a just about everyone, the field was sent to the pits while the cleanup ensued. The B Main 15 lap event was then run first, with LJ Farmer getting by Wilburn Parks on the final lap to take the victory and visit the Monroe Asphalt Winner's Circle. Adam Jezylo, Taylor Papineau, Ian Jezylo, Trevor Farmer and Rich Abel were next in line at the finish.

 
The A Main 25 lap feature returned to the track for another shot at racing. Patton took the lead on the green while Landon Schuster worked the high side and nosed in front after several laps of trading the lead back and forth. With 5 to go, the lead duo tangled, bringing out the yellow and since both drivers could not agree, both cars went to the rear. Rob Randa was now on the point and got plenty of heat from Greg Studt over the final 5 laps. Studt closed in strong at the line but came up a door short as Randa grabbed the win. Studt was second, Nick Shanks third, rookie Max Fair recorded his best finish of the season in fourth and Schuster was fifth, followed by Guy Fire, Chris Diovardi, Patton, Rob Moore and Rob Moore Jr. Studt led the 29 car field in qualifying with a lap of 13:378. Trevor Farmer, David Liaeff, Schuster and LJ Farmer took the heat wins.

 
Steve Martin was one of the founders of the MCR Dwarf Car Series and sadly passed away last season. In honor of Steve, the group competed in the 26 lap Steve Martin Memorial at Flat Rock Saturday night. Troy Hoffman held back the challenge of Eric Hoffman in the closing stages to take the win. Jeff Slayton, Matt Kemp and Logan Mears trailed the winner.

 
The next event on the Flat Rock schedule is the Firecracker 150 and Monroe Superstore Fireworks Spectacular Saturday evening, July 6. The feature race-only format for this night has the ARCA Moran Chevrolet Late Models battling in a 50 lap race. The ARCA DTS Drive Train Specialists will run 50 and 20 laps for the A and B Mains, respectively, and the ARCA Victory Lane Quick Oil Change Figure 8's will go 30 laps in the Michigan Figure 8 Championship.  The Bandoleros will also hit the track July 6.

 
The night concludes with the famous and fabulous Flat Rock Fireworks show, which began in 1981 and continues to this day! All UAW Local 3000 tickets dated June 1 and all Victory Lane Quick Oil Change tickets dated June 15 will be honored July 6.
