WHITENER EARNS POLE FOR 4TH ANNUAL STREET STOCK WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP RACE
 
BRONSON SWEEPS VOLUSIA SUNSHINE NATIONALS WITH $10K WIN

 
              DeLEON SPRINGS, FL – Kyle Bronson of Brandon, FL got out his broom and swept up the competition collecting $13,500 along the way after winning his third straight Sunshine Nationals race on Saturday night co-sanctioned by the Newsome Raceway Parts Crate Racin’ USA Dirt Late Model Series and the DIRTcar Pro Late Model Series at Volusia Speedway Park.

 
              Bronson drove the Brandon Ford Rocket to a $1,500 win on Thursday night, a $2,000 win on Friday night, and then just made it to victory lane on Saturday night for a $10,000 victory. The left-rear tire on Bronson’s car was flat as he pulled into Victory Lane. The tire was cut down in an epic battle with Michael Page of Douglasville, GA in which contact was the rule rather than the exception.

 
              “We cut down that tire on the first restart on lap 14 and the car kept getting looser, so I knew it was going down,” Bronson said. “I just kept telling the tire to please hang in there during those last five laps. Page and I had some words during the red flag, but we worked it out and he said let’s race. To me, when you come to race in Florida, rubbin’s racin’ and we’re going to trade paint and bend some quarter panels, but oh well, they make them every day.”

 
              Bronson and Page swapped the lead three times in spectacular fashion with side jobs and crossover moves that kept the packed house on their feet watching the leaders go at it. Brandon Williams of Crossville, TN made the battle for the lead a three-car dance with his Jeff Woods Construction Capital Race Car, but he dropped out with five laps to go while running second with a broken fuel pump.

 
              Page finished a close second in his 16-year-old Troy Beard Racing Mastersbilt and Walker Arthur of Forest, VA took the third spot in the Cecil B. Arthur Beef Farms Kryptonite. Mark Whitener of Middleburg, FL started his ULC Motorsports Barry Wright 21st and finished fourth to earn the Knowles Race Parts and Bodies Hard Charger Award.

 
              Jason Fitzgerald of Middleburg, FL came back from a lap 14 spin to finish fifth in the Southway Crane and Rigging Black Diamond. Max Blair of Centerville, PA was sixth in the Murphy’s Logging Rocket, and seventh went to Randy Weaver of Crossville, TN in the B&M Concrete CVR.

 
              Two-time Newsome Raceway Parts Crate Racin’ USA Champion Cory Hedgecock of Loudon, TN finished eighth in the Eagle Racing Engines Rocket and Trynt Lloyd of Jacksonville, FL took the ninth spot in the Tom Kelly Construction Longhorn. Dillon Brown of Gaffney, SC rounded out the top ten in the Cherokee Landscaping Longhorn.

 
              In preliminary action, Trever Taylor of Zellwood, FL in the Envy Suspension Snow Brothers out-timed the 43-car field during Pace Performance Quick Time Qualifying with a lap around the half-mile clay oval in 17.018 seconds.

 
              The four KRC Power Steering eight-lap Heat Races were won by Page, Brown, Weaver, and Corey Almond of Appomattox, VA in the AA Contractors Longhorn. The two ten-lap Last Chance Showdown Races were won by Whitener and 2018 Newsome Raceway Parts Crate Racin’ USA National Champion Ashton Winger of Hampton, GA in the Johnny Doan Plumbing Rocket.

 
              The only strategy for a 30-lap race paying $10,000-to-win is to get to the front as quickly as you can and then try to stay there. The 26-car field did not disappoint from the drop of the green flag. Page came from his third starting spot to dive under polesitter Walker and outside front row starter Weaver in the first turn. 

 
              Bronson came from the fifth starting hole to move up to third going down the backstretch. Page led lap one followed by Weaver, Bronson, Arthur and Fitzgerald. Lap two saw Fitzgerald get by Arthur for fourth, and Bronson dove under Weaver in turn four to slide job his way up to second on lap three.

 
              Williams came from the tenth starting spot to hurry into the fourth spot on lap four. Williams was on a mission, as he passed his Crossville, TN neighbor Weaver for the third spot on lap seven. 

 
              The first pass for the lead took place on lap ten when Bronson threw a slider on Page in turn three and then came up over Page’s nose coming off turn four to take the point. Bronson led Page into the cars on the tail end of the lead lap by the 12th tour, but they didn’t play in the traffic very long.

 
              The caution flag came out on lap 14 for debris on the front straightaway. The field lined up for the Dixie-Style Double-File Restart with Bronson in the lead followed by Page, Williams, Weaver, Fitzgerald, defending Newsome Raceway Parts Crate Racin’ USA National Champion Jake Knowles of Rome, GA, Lloyd, Almond, and Blair doubled up behind the leader.

 
              On the restart, Page dove to the inside of Bronson in turn one and the lead pair made contact. That gave the lead to Williams, but when Bronson and Page gather up their machines, that caused the rest of the field to check up and accordion into a mess five-wide going down the back straightaway.

 
              The cars running fifth on back never got things sorted out and Fitzgerald spun. The big one was wading up in four. A total of seven cars were involved in a pile up behind Fitzgerald, who went to the rear of the field for the restart after being ticketed with the caution flag.

 
              Bronson and Page caught a break as a lap had not been completed, and they restarted first and second respectively with Williams in third. When the green flag came back out, Page drove under the back end of Bronson’s car, lifted it up in the air, and sat it back down going into turn one. Page tried to make a move under Bronson, but the leader came charging back on the outside to stay out front.

 
              A multi-car wreck in turn two on lap 15 brought out a red flag. It appeared that Knowles and Blair got together in turn two while battling for the fifth spot. Knowles had to park his Knowles Race Parts and Bodies Longhorn after being taken to the pits on the back of a wrecker. 

 
While the red flag was out, Bronson and Page parked next to each other on the front straightaway to discuss the wrecker or checkers racing that was going on for $10,000. By the time they fired their Chevrolet Performance 604 Engines back up for the restart, both drivers had an understanding of what kind of race it was going to be, and that was more of the same.
When the field went back to green flag racing it was Slide Job City and Crossover County, as Bronson and Page traded paint, sheet metal, racing grooves, the first and second spots, everything except Christmas Cards. Page threw a slider on Bronson to take the lead on the restart in turn two. Bronson came back to return the favor in turn four on lap 16.
The wild and wooly action was slowed on lap 18 when Jeff Mathews of Brandon, FL hit the front straightaway wall in the CURS Rocket to light up the yellow LEDs for the fourth time. Bronson had Page, Williams, Arthur, Blair, Weaver, Whitener, Lloyd, Brown, and Almond doubled up behind him for the restart.
Williams came out with the lead in turn two getting by both Bronson and Page. Bronson got up a head of steam going into turn three and he threw a tight and inside slider on Williams to retake the lead coming off the fourth turn. By lap 20, Bronson pulled out to a six-tenth of the second lead over Williams.
The night came to an end for Williams when he slowed on lap 26 to bring out the caution flag. With the field inside five laps to go, it was a single-file restart with Bronson leading Page, Arthur, Blair, Whitener, Weaver, Fitzgerald, Lloyd, Brown, and Hedgecock.
Bronson was able to keep the bottom covered in the five lap dash to the finish. Page stayed close, but Bronson was able to take a .330 second margin of victory under the checkered flag. By the time Bronson cleared the scales, all of the air was gone out of his left-rear tire. 
The next three races for the Newsome Raceway Parts Crate Racin’ USA Dirt Late Model Series will be Rounds 5, 6, and 7 of the Winter Shootout Series at East Bay Raceway Park in Tampa, FL with a pair of $2,500-to-win races on Thursday night, January 30 and Friday night, January 31, and a $5,000-to-win race on Saturday night, February 1.

BRONSON MAKES IT 2 IN A ROW WITH FRIDAY SUNSHINE NATIONALS WIN


 
              DeLEON SPRINGS, FL – Kyle Bronson of Brandon, FL drove the Brandon Ford Rocket to his second straight win on Friday night in the 25-lap Sunshine Nationals main event for the Newsome Raceway Parts Crate Racin’ USA Dirt Late Model Series and the DIRTcar Pro Late Models at Volusia Speedway Park.

 
              Bronson took the lead on lap five and never looked back to collect the $2,000 top prize and another Newsome Raceway Parts Crate Racin’ USA Golden Helmet Trophy to add to his collection. Bronson picked up the $1,500-to-win Sunshine Nationals race on Thursday night at Volusia Speedway Park.

 
              The lead change came on lap five as Bronson dove to the inside of early race leader Jadon Frame of Decherd, TN in turn one. The two front runners made contact in turn two and Frame’s Denby’s J&J Construction Capital Race Car made a hard right turn and made heavy contact with the wall. Frame was uninjured, but he was done for the night.

 
              “I hate what happened with Frame up in turn two, as we were just two good cars racing hard for the lead and we got together,” Bronson said. “Once we got in the lead, we just tried to maintain what we had, and save a little for the end if we needed it.”

 
              On Saturday night, Bronson and the rest of the field will race for $10,000-to-win in a 30-lap main event for the finale of the Sunshine Nationals. Bronson has had past success in $10,000-to-win races with the Crate Racin’ USA, as he has six wins that include three Chevrolet Performance World Championship Races, two Southern 100 wins, and a Possum Town Grand Prix win.

 
              Randy Weaver of Crossville, TN finished second for the second straight night in the B&M Concrete CVR and Max Blair of Centerville, PA was third for the second straight night in the Murphy’s Logging Rocket. The defending Newsome Raceway Parts Crate Racin’ USA Dirt Late Model Series National Champion Jake Knowles of Rome, GA took the fourth spot in the Knowles Race Parts and Bodies Longhorn.

 
              Nevin Gainey of Fort White, FL finished fifth in the Kryptonite Race Cars Special and Trever Taylor of Zellwood, FL drove the Envy Suspension Snow Brothers to a sixth-place finish. Corey Almond of Appomattox, VA was seventh in the AA Contractors Longhorn and Brandon Williams of Crossville, TN took the eighth spot in the Jeff Woods Construction Capital.

 
              The ninth spot went to Trynt Lloyd of Jacksonville, FL in the Tom Kelly Construction Longhorn and Devin Dixon of Apollo Beach, FL rounded out the top ten in the CURS Capital. Todd Cooney of Pleasant Hill, IA started 24th in the Spangler Automotive Mastersbilt and finished 11th to earn the Knowles Race Parts and Bodies Hard Charger Award.

 
              In preliminary action, Bronson was the Pace Performance Quick Time winner with a lap around the half-mile clay oval in 17.058 seconds. The four eight-lap heat races were won by Bronson, Mark Whitener of Middleburg, FL in the ULC Motorsports Barry Wright, Knowles, and Walker Arthur of Forest, VA in the Cecil B. Arthur Beef Farms Kryptonite. The two ten-lap B-Main races were won by Jeff Mathews of Brandon, FL in the CURS Rocket and Dixon.

 
              Knowles took the lead at the start of the race from the pole position followed by Whitener, Bronson, Frame, and Blair. Frame made a big move from fourth to the lead on lap two, bringing Bronson with him up into second.

 
              The first of five caution flags came out on lap five when Dillon Brown of Gaffney, SC hit the fourth turn wall in the Cherokee Landscaping Longhorn. Frame led Bronson, Knowles, Whitener, Arthur, Blair, Michael Page of Douglasville, GA in the Troy Beard Racing Mastersbilt, Almond, Williams, and Weaver in the top ten double up behind him for the restart.

 
              Bronson dove for the inside of turn one on the restart to challenge Frame for the lead. The two leaders raced into turn two side-by-side when Frame on the outside veered to the wall, made hard contact, and brought the caution flag back out.

 
              Blair made a big move on the next restart coming from fifth to third. Bronson had his car on kill, as he opened up a full straightaway lead by lap ten. The yellow caution bulb was lit up for the third time on lap 11 when Clay Harris of Jupiter, FL stalled the Dunnrite Construction Rocket on the backstretch.

 
              The field raced for one more lap when Page gave up the seventh spot when he stalled on the backstretch to bring out the fourth caution flag. Bronson had Knowles, Blair, Arthur, Weaver, Gainey, Taylor, David Whitener of Middleburg, FL in the ULC Motorsports Barry Wright, and Dixon doubled up behind him for the restart. Blair and Weaver got by Knowles on the restart to take over second and third respectively.

 
              Blair and Weaver battled for the second spot while Bronson pulled away. On lap 15, Bronson had a two second lead on Weaver, but that went away on lap 18 when Mark Whitener spun in turn two. Bronson led Weaver, Blair, Knowles, Gainey, Taylor, Almond, Dixon, David Whitener, and Jamie Carter of Clayhill, FL in the DMT Trucking Barry Wright down for the restart.

 
              Weaver was reeling in Bronson during the closing laps but Bronson sealed the deal when Weaver jumped the cushion in turn four on lap 24. Bronson had a 1.260 second margin of victory at the checkered flag. Night three of the Sunshine Nationals will be on Saturday night with the Newsome Raceway Park Crate Racin’ USA/DIRTcar Pro Late Models running for $10,000-to-win.

BRONSON TOPS NEWSOME RACEWAY PARTS CRUSA VOLUSIA FIELD


 
              DeLEON SPRINGS, FL – Kyle Bronson of Brandon, FL led all 25 laps to pocket the $1,500 top prize on Thursday night for the Newsome Raceway Parts Crate Racin’ USA Dirt Late Model Series at Volusia Speedway Park. Bronson was able to pull away from the field on the start and restarts in the Brandon Ford Rocket to score the win.

 
The race was the first of three nights of the Sunshine Nationals at VSP that is co-sanctioned with the DirtCar Pro Late Model Series. It was also the second of eight races that make up the 3td Annual Newsome Raceway Parts Crate Racin’ USA Dirt Late Model Series Winter Shootout Series.
“Getting the lead at the start of the race was important because clean air is big here,” Bronson said referring to the big half-mile clay oval. “We had a good car tonight. I want to thank all of my sponsors and the fans for coming out tonight. We’re looking forward to the rest of the week.”
Randy Weaver of Crossville, TN came out of retirement to finish second in the B&M Concrete CVR, and Max Blair of Centerville, PA was third in the Murphy’s Logging Rocket. Walker Arthur of Forest, VA took the fourth spot in the Cecil B. Arthur Beef Farms Kryptonite, and fifth went to Clay Harris of Jupiter, FL in the Dunnrite Construction Rocket.
Trynt Lloyd of Jacksonville, FL was sixth in the Tom Kelly Construction Longhorn and David Whitener of Middleburg, FL started 20th in the ULC Motorsports Barry Wright and finished seventh to earn the Knowles Race Parts and Bodies Hard Charger of the Race Award. Mark Whitener of Middleburg, FL came back from a lap ten spin to take the eighth spot in the ULC Motorsports Barry Wright.
Brandon Williams of Crossville, TN drove the Jeff Woods Construction Capital Race Car to a ninth-place finish and Trevor Taylor of Zellwood, FL rounded out the top ten in the Envy Suspension Snow Brothers Race Car. 
In preliminary action, Weaver out-timed the 41-car field in Group Qualifying with a lap in 16.997 seconds. The four eight-lap KRC Power Steering Heat Races were won by Weaver, Harris, Corey Almond of Appomattox, VA in the AA Contractors Longhorn and Bronson. The two ten-lap B-Main Races were won by Jimmy Waldrop of Seffner, FL in the Johnny Doan Plumbing Rocket and Devin Dixon of Apollo Beach, FL in the CURS Capital Race Car. 
Bronson drew the pole position for the start of the race among the first and second-place drivers in the four heat races, and jumped out to the lead at the start of the race, but the contest was immediately red flagged for a multi-car incident coming off the fourth turn. No one was injured and all but Cody Overton of Evans, GA in the Midstates Equipment Special was able to continue.
The complete restart saw Bronson pull out to a two car-length lead over Mark Whitener, Harris, Blair and Pierce McCarter of Gatlinburg, TN in the Parkway Liquors Longhorn. Blair came from the eighth starting spot to pass four cars in turn two of the opening lap. Harris worked to the inside of Whitener to take over the second spot on lap five.
Nevin Gainey of Fort White, FL brought out the caution flag on lap seven when he stalled the Kryptonite Race Cars Special on the backstretch. Bronson led Harris, Whitener, Blair, Jody Knowles of Tyrone, GA in the Clayton Signs Rocket, McCarter, Weaver, Arthur, Williams, and Lloyd doubled up behind him for the restart.
On the restart, Bronson pulled away, the action behind him was fast and furious with wholesale position changes. Whitener was able to get by Harris for second in turn two, and Blair raced by Harris for third in turn three. Knowles gave up a top five spot on lap nine when he stalled on the backstretch.
Whitener and Blair were all over Bronson on the restart, but Whitener spun in turn two on lap ten going for the lead. Whitener had to go to the back of the pack for the restart, which moved Blair up to second followed by Weaver, Williams, Arthur, Lloyd, Almond, and Harris.
Weaver moved up to challenge Blair Side-by-side for the second spot while Bronson pulled away on the restart. Weaver was able to take the second spot away from Blair on lap 15, but by then, Bronson had pulled out to over a two second lead. Bronson caught the cars on the tail of the lead lap by lap 18 and easily kept his lead over Weaver as the laps clicked off closer to the checkered flag.
Bronson’s big lead and the lapped traffic were gone on lap 24 when a lapped car got into McCarter, who was running in the top ten, causing him to make heavy contact with the wall. The top ten for the green, white, checkered dash to the finish was Bronson, Weaver, Blair, Williams, Arthur, Lloyd, Harris, David Whitener, Mark Whitener, and Jaden Frame of Decherd, TN in the Denby’s J&J Construction Capital Race Car.
Bronson was able to keep Weaver behind him to take a .830 second margin of victory under the checkered flag. The Newsome Raceway Parts Crate Racin’ USA Dirt Late Model Series returns to Volusia Speedway Park on Friday night for a $2,000-to-win race, and the grand finale on Saturday night pays $10,000-to-win.

BATAVIA, OH (December 19, 2019) - Tyler Erb started off the 2019 season by winning the first night out and taking the honor of displaying the Midwest Sheet Metal orange spoiler to signify the points lead. Erb finished out the year as the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Eibach Springs Rookie of the Year and taking fourth in Championship points.
 
"I'm super happy to be able to win Rookie of the Year for Best Performance Motorsports. We had a goal to win that, and to set and achieve a goal is something people always talk about, but not everyone can say they did," Erb stated. "Our season started out so well that people said we hit a slump halfway through the year, but we really weren't. It's not easy to win every night, especially racing the champions that we do. Next year we plan to be named Champion and are going to be full speed ahead towards achieving that goal."
 
At the year-end awards banquet, Erb received $10,000 in cash and other prizes for Rookie of the Year honors. Erb went on to say, "I'd like to thank Eric and Kelly Brock, Jeff and Kelly Babcock, and everyone that works for Best Performance, as they all play a role in our season. I would also like to thank Rocket Chassis, Durham Racing Engine, Industrial Resourcing Group, Roberts Bee Company, New Point Lighting and Design, Bazell Race Fuels, Sunoco, Franklin Enterprises, Valvoline, Keyser, and KBC Graphix."

CRATE RACIN’ USA PURCHASES SECA FOR NEW PRESENCE IN THE CAROLINAS

 
               ADAIRSVILLE, GA – Crate Racin’ USA officials have announced that they have purchased the South Eastern Crate Association (SECA) that campaigns several racing Divisions in the Carolinas and Northeast Georgia. While there will be a change of ownership, not much else will change in the near future.

 
              “The Divisions that race under the SECA banner will remain in place with very few adjustments for the 2020 season,” Crate Racin’ USA Director Adam Stewart said. “We will have a new website up soon that will contain rules, contact information, and all of the pertinent information.”

 
Stewart said all of the SECA staff and many of the key personnel will remain on board and keep things more the same than different. The main thing Crate Racin’ USA will add to what is already in place at SECA is a larger National public relations footprint and added Technical support going forward.
Scott Childress turned over the keys of SECA to Stewart, and now he can concentrate on not only working with the SECA team, but also promoting Cherokee Speedway in Gaffney, SC and Lavonia Speedway in Lavonia, GA.
“I’m excited to see what Crate Racin’ USA brings to the SECA drivers and tracks,” Childress said. “Crate Racin’ USA will bring a common set of rules for 604 Late Models and Street Stocks that will give drivers in the Carolinas and Northeast Georgia an opportunity to travel more to bigger races, and at the same time, open opportunities for tracks to have bigger races that will bring more cars and more fans to our area.”
The competitors of SECA thought the adaption of Crate Racin’ USA rules was something they thought would be a great idea if it could happen. Childers and Stewart started a conversation about it last fall, and Childress said the deal came about quickly.
“Both Adam and I thought it would be a good thing for SECA to become part of Crate Racin’ USA because both organizations have good people, and we would just let them do what they do best,” Childress said. “I know I’m looking forward to having Crate Racin’ USA SECA Late Model and Street Stock events in 2020 at Cherokee Speedway and Lavonia Speedway.”
Crate Racin’ USA is currently developing a new SECA website and Social Media pages that they hope to have online in the next couple of weeks. All official SECA announcements and schedules will come through the new media outlets.
