Jonathan Davenport Earns Second Career Sunoco North/South 100

UNION, KY (August 13, 2022) – Jonathan Davenport rolled to his second career victory in the Sunoco Race Fuels North/South 100 Presented by Lucas Oil on Saturday night at Florence Speedway. 

 

Davenport earned an event record $75,000 for the win to go along with his victory in 2015 in the annual Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series-sanctioned event.

 

Defending race winner Brandon Overton tried to close the gap in the final five laps, coming to within two car lengths of Davenport. However, Davenport would prevail by 1.017 seconds ahead of Overton, who was attempting to become the first back-to-back winner of the crown jewel event since Don O’Neal in 2012 and 2013.

 

Dale McDowell ran in second for several laps before finishing in third behind his fellow Georgians. Ricky Thornton Jr. was fourth and Mike Marlar completed the top five drivers.

 

Davenport and Chris Madden who entered the weekend as the first and second-ranked dirt late model drivers in the country (per the DirtonDirt.com Top-25 Poll) started on the front row of the event held before a packed grandstand. Unfortunately, Madden’s night would end before a lap was scored as a broken J-Bar entering turn four eliminated him from the race.

 

Back underway, Davenport would cruise out to a commanding lead. Lapped traffic came into play as McDowell was closing the gap before a caution on lap 56 cleared traffic for the race leader. On the restart Overton was able to get by McDowell for second, as Davenport was already starting to pull away from the field.

 

Overton and McDowell slowly started to reel in Davenport as the leader was encountering heavy traffic in the closing laps. Overton began to diamond off turn number two and close the gap down the backstretch. In the last final circuits, Overton appeared to have a shot at stealing the win from Davenport as the crowd rose in anticipation of a close finish. However, Davenport was able to hold his line to cross the finish line for his second straight Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series crown-jewel event.

 

Davenport in Lucas Oil Victory Lane for the 63rd time in his career said: “We just made one adjustment from last night. Our car was pretty good, but we just needed one thing to work on. We talked about it all day and that one little adjustment made the difference. These Longhorn Chassis react to the smallest of adjustments that you make on them. At the end it got so slow and slick. I was trying to smash the gas less and less. I saw 76 [Overton] on the board and I knew he was probably getting closer to me. So, I moved up a lane. We were able to get through lapped traffic good again tonight.”

 

Overton thought he had a realistic shot if Davenport had not changed his line in the closing laps. “For him not to move, that is what I was hoping for. We were catching lapped cars and I started to move around a little bit. I don’t know if I could gain on him. I could get a better run off two, but he moved up in front of me and then the lapped cars were dirtying the bottom back up. Congrats to him, everything’s going their way. We will just take our second and go home.”

 

McDowell rounded out the podium in third. “Early on I thought we had shot. I think all of us hit our tough spots during the race, we would go and then fade, go and then fade. We were a little bit tight. Jonathan [Davenport] has had an awesome year and Brandon [Overton] is always good it seems like. It’s fun racing against these young guys and to keep up with them is good.”

 

The winner’s Lance and Darla Landers owned, Double L Motorsports, Longhorn Chassis is powered by a Cornett Racing Engine and sponsored by Nutrien Ag Solutions, Spartan Mowers, ASC Warranty, Bilstein Shocks, VP Race Fuels, Midwest Sheet Metal, Mark Martin Automotive, and Mega Plumbing of the Carolinas.

 

Completing the top ten were Zack Dohm, Tim McCreadie, Chris Ferguson, Ricky Weiss, and Bobby Pierce.

 O’Neal and Davenport Claim North/South 100 Preliminary Features

UNION, KY (August 12, 2022) – Hudson O’Neal and Jonathan Davenport captured Friday night’s Sunoco North/South 100 Presented by Lucas Oil preliminary feature wins at Florence Speedway. 

 

O’Neal held off a furious last-lap charge from Earl Pearson Jr. to win the first 25-lap main event of the night. Davenport came back to lead every lap in the second feature beating fellow Georgia racers Dale McDowell and Brandon Overton to the finish line.

 

Trailing O’Neal and Pearson across the finish line in the first feature of the night were Bobby Pierce, Zack Dohm, and Spencer Hughes.

 

O’Neal jumped to the point at the start of the first 25-lap race before the caution waved with just one lapped scored. On the restart, O’Neal led Marlar and Pearson for two more circuits until Pearson moved by Marlar for the second spot. 

 

Dohm, who had started sixth, moved up to third on the eighth lap and then two laps after another caution had the runner-up spot behind O’Neal. The third and final caution of the race appeared on lap 17 when Marlar slowed with a left-rear flat tire. 

 

A restart with five laps to go still saw O’Neal pacing the field with Pearson using the middle line on the racetrack, closing on the back of O’Neal’s car with just a few laps remaining. As the two headed down the back stretch on the final lap, Pearson made one final run on O’Neal heading into turn number four as O’Neal slid up in front Pearson coming off the corner. The two charged to the finish line with O’Neal able to hold off Pearson by half a car length which equated to 0.120 seconds the stripe.

 

In Lucas Oil Victory Lane for the fourth time in 2022, O’Neal felt he primed himself for the $75,000 first place prize being offered on Saturday night. “I knew he [Pearson] was there. I saw his nose a couple of times through the center of the corner. There about three or four laps to go before that caution came out, I just kept getting tighter and tighter. I just couldn’t steer around the bottom there at the end. So, we’ll have to work on that a little bit. But all-in-all, we had a great race car up until that point. I was just trying to use up the whole racetrack and it worked out.”

 

Pearson, who’s last series win was two years ago at Florence, nearly pulled one out at the end but fell just short of his 40th career win in Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series competition. “Congrats to Hud on the win. Our car was good there through the middle after that last restart. I thought I could roll him on the outside. He ran my line and I tried to crossover coming off four but came up short. I think for 100 laps tomorrow night we will have something for them.”

 

Pierce, who won the event in 2016, rounded out the podium in third. “Our car was good early, then we faded a little bit, and then we got going there late, but we just ran out of laps.”

 

The winner’s Roger Sellers-owned, Double Down Motorsports, Rocket Chassis is powered by a Cornett Racing Engine and sponsored by Lazydays RV, O’Neal’s Salvage and Recycling, Lucas Oil Products, Smoky Mountain Speedway, WR1 Sim Chassis, VP Race Fuels, Integra Racing Shocks, and Dynamic Drivelines.

 

Completing the top ten in the first feature were Ross Robinson, Justin Rattliff, Dustin Linville, Victor Lee, and Trevor Landrum.

 

The second 25-lap main event saw Davenport lead every circuit virtually unchallenged. A furious battle for second was taking place behind him between McDowell and Overton as those two drivers went back-and-forth for second in the closing laps.

 

Davenport took the checkers by 2.039 seconds ahead of McDowell. Ricky Weiss came home in fourth and Josh Rice rounded out the top five.

 

In Lucas Oil Victory Lane for the 62nd time in his career the 3-time series champion noted he had a good car through heavy lapped traffic which proved to be the difference in the waning laps. “We got through lapped traffic pretty good there, so that’s a good thing. That’s something we’ve really struggled with here lately,” said the 38-year-old racer. “We done a couple of things different that we don’t normally do, and it seemed to work out pretty good.”

 

Davenport, who last won the Sunoco North/South 100 Presented by Lucas Oil in 2015 narrowly escaped disaster on the front stretch after contact with Jason Jameson with five laps to go, but he held on for his fourth Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win of the year.

 

McDowell, who will be seeking his first win in the crown jewel event on Saturday night, came home in second after the nip-and-tuck battle with Overton. “Last night we weren’t very good qualifying, but tonight it was much better. We started off much better qualifying and in our heat race tonight and that led to a good night,” said McDowell, who started sixth. 

 

Overton, who started alongside Davenport on the front row, never was outside the top three the entire race as the defending Sunoco North/South 100 Presented by Lucas Oil winner will try to become the first driver since Don O’Neal in 2012 and 2013 to win the crown jewel event in back-to-back seasons. “We had a good car. We’ll make some tweaks on it for tomorrow night and see what we have for them.”

 

The winner’s Lance and Darla Landers-owned, Double L Motorsports Longhorn Chassis is powered by a Cornett Racing Engine and sponsored by Nutrien Ag Solutions, Spartan Mowers, ASC Warranty, Bilstein Shocks, VP Race Fuels, Midwest Sheet Metal, Mark Martin Automotive, and Mega Plumbing of the Carolinas.

 

Completing the top ten in the second feature was Ricky Thornton Jr., Chris Madden, Tyler Erb, Brandon Sheppard, and Garrett Alberson.

Record Purse for 30th Annual COMP Cams Topless 100

Batavia, OHIO (August 16, 2022) – The nation’s elite dirt late model drivers will chase a $50,000 top prize this weekend at Batesville Motor Speedway in the 30th Annual COMP Cams Topless 100 – Presented by Nutrien Ag Solutions.
 
The crown jewel event – co-sanctioned by the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series Presented by Lucas Oil – offers a unique perspective of dirt late models without a roof. The topless aspect gives spectators an up-close look, as drivers wrestle their 800+ horsepower machines around the lightning-fast, 3/8-mile oval.
 
In 2021, a close and dramatic finish saw Hudson O’Neal barely edge ahead of Jonathan Davenport at the finish line. After taking the white flag Davenport went low in turn one for the lead briefly as O’Neal crossed over to regain the top spot heading down the back stretch. Davenport made one last-ditch effort sliding in front of O’Neal as the two headed to the checkers. O’Neal would cross over Davenport, beating him to the finish line by just 0.116 seconds. Brandon Overton, Tim McCreadie, and Jimmy Owens completed the Top-5 finishers.
 
This year’s action kicks off on Friday night with a complete program of Dirt Draft Hot Laps, Allstar Performance Time Trials, B-Mains, and a 30-lap, $5,000-to-win main event. Drivers will earn points in Friday’s preliminary events that will determine the lineups for Saturday night’s finale. The Top-16 in points will be locked into the A-Main, while everyone else will start in a B-Main.
 
On Friday, the pit gate will open at 3:00 PM CT, general admission gate at 4:30 PM CT, with a driver’s meeting slated for 7:00 PM CT. Hot Laps are set to begin at 7:30 PM CT.
 
Saturday’s festivities will kick off with Dirt Draft Hot Laps at 7:30 PM CT, followed by B-Mains for the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series/ COMP Cams Super Dirt Series Presented by Lucas Oil competitors. The 100-lap, $50,000-to-win, COMP Cams Topless 100 – Presented by Nutrien Ag Solutions will cap off the weekend. On Saturday, the pit gate will open at 4:00 PM CT, main gate at 4:30 PM CT.

By Mike Leone


 

(August 19, 2022) - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(Pulaski, PA)...An action packed second weekend of August saw racing in all five Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Racing Series presented by Born2Run Lubricants classes along with the RUSH Karting Series. Mike Epler and Logan Reed captured their first career RUSH Late Models wins, while Jeremy Wonderling had a huge weekend with three shows and a runner-up in the first ever RUSH race at Marion Center to earn more than $6,000. Ayden Cipriano had a breakout weekend with his first career Sharon and Tri-City wins in the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds. Chad Ruhlman and Ryan Fraley won the RUSH Sprint Car events over big fields of 28 and 24 cars at Lernerville and Sharon respectively. Steve Dixon continued his dominance of the RUSH Pro Mods at Bradford.

 

The weekend got off to an early start as Genesee Speedway hosted a special Thursday night program with a solid field of 19 RUSH Late Models on hand. Jeremy Wonderling fought his way past his brother Brady with six laps to go to score his fifth victory of the season. Brady Wonderling was second for the second time in three starts at the Batavia, NY fairground oval. Jon Rivers was third over Doug Ricotta and David Pangrazio.  

 

Dog Hollow Speedway had a season high 17 RUSH Late Models turn out on Friday night and it was New York invader Jeremy Wonderling scoring his first career win at the Northern Cambria, Pa. oval. For the second straight night, Jeremy passed his brother Brady for the lead; this time on lap 12 and went on for the $1,500 victory. Jeremy withstood the five-car battle for the lead that included "Track Pack" points leader Michael Duritsky, Jr., two-time Dog Hollow winner Jon Lee, Brady Wonderling, and Ryan Frazee. 

 

The Hill Speedway returned to action on Friday night for the first time in a month and it was Mike Epler scoring his first career RUSH Late Model victory. Epler became the season's fifth different winner. Rich McNeal, who won his first career RUSH Late Model feature at the last event, was second. The Hill's "Track Pack" points leader, Jared Keeney, was third.    

 

Also returning to racing after a month off was Delaware International Speedway on Friday night. Derek Magee picked up his second straight RUSH Late Model victory at the Delmar half-mile oval. Joe Warren was second for his fourth podium in five starts this season to lead the "Track Pack" points. Ben Scott was third ahead of Matt Glanden in his first start of the season. Matt Hill completed the top five. 

 

The third Friday night track that completed their first program since July 15 was Potomac Speedway. The 2021 National Weekly and Touring Series Champion, Kyle Hardy, continued his winning ways at the southern Maryland 1/3-mile oval. Hardy passed race-long leader, Megan Mann, in turn four on the final lap for his third straight win and fifth in seven tries this year at Potomac. Mann was second for the second straight race and her third straight podium effort. Joey Love was fourth. Winchester Speedway regular, Scott Sweeney, Jr., made his first ever appearance and was fifth. 

 

Genesee was right back in action on Saturday night as they were able to complete their 14th RUSH Late Model program of the 2022 season. Jon Rivers was able to end nearly a four-year winless drought to cop the feature victory. Rivers ran down Austin Allen and made the winning pass on lap 12 just prior to the halfway point of the 25-lap feature. Rivers kept Allen at bay to score the popular victory. Allen was second in just his second appearance of the season. Doug Ricotta was third for his 11th top five of the season and remained perfect with all top 10 finishes in his 14 starts. Chad Homan and J.J. Mazur completed the top five.

 

Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway matched Genesee with their 14th RUSH Late Model event of the season on Saturday night. Cole Petrelle captured his second feature win of the season. Petrelle passed Shaffer on lap six and went on for the caution-free victory- the third of his career at the "Monster Half-Mile". Shaffer was second for his ninth top five in 11 starts as he's yet to finish worse than seventh in any race this season. Kassidy Kamicker was a season best third over Dave Goble. Philip Bubeck, who leads both the "Track Pack" and "Futures Cup" points, was fifth.

 

Alan Chapman scored his third RUSH Late Model victory of the season at Skyline Raceway Motorsports Park on Saturday night with all three coming since June 18 as he continues to lead the $1,000 to-win "Track Pack" points. Brother Todd Chapman was third. Billy DuBois was third in his first appearance at Skyline. Patrick Parker was fourth as another newcomer to Skyline, Bill Button, completed the top five.

By Marcie Barlow

 
(August 12, 2022) - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Pulaski, PA)...What began as a rainy weekend gave way to clearing skies for Saturday and Sunday and the various Hovis Auto and Truck Supply RUSH Racing Series presented by Born2Run Lubricants did not disappoint. Logan Roberson capped off a perfect evening to score the win in the 33rd annual "Jook George Steel City Classic" which showcased the Flynn's Tire Late Model Tour at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway. Todd Chapman and Keith Walls won their first career RUSH Late Model events, while Mike Wonderling earned his first win in more than six years in Weekly Series action. Second year competitor Ben Easler maneuvered through lapped traffic to become the first Sharon repeat winner of the season in the Hovis RUSH Sportsman Modified action. 
 
Competitors at Virginia’s Winchester Speedway managed to dodge the rain. Keith Walls started in the second spot but immediate took control of the main event. Tyler Hoy pressured Walls for the entire distance of the event, but was never able to wrestle the top spot away from Walls. Walls went on to score his career first RUSH victory in just his fifth start. His prior best finish was a fourth at the last event he competed in on July 23. Hoy, Mike Franklin, Cameron Campbell, and Scott Sweeney Jr. completed the top five.

 
In his second year of RUSH Late Model racing, Todd Chapman captured his career first victory in the division on Saturday night at Skyline Raceway beating out his brother and two-time winner, Alan Chapman. Pat Parker was third for the third time this season matching his season's best effort.
 
Mike Wonderling led the Hovis Auto and Truck Supply RUSH Late Model main event flag-to-flag on Saturday evening at Genesee Speedway to score his first RUSH win since July 3, 2016 and first ever divisional victory at the track. Jon Rivers challenged Wonderling until he was slowed by mechanical problems on lap 15. Wondering went on to score the win with Doug Ricotta, David Pangrazio, Bill Holmes and Paul Grigsby following.
 
Saturday night at Woodhull Raceway rookies Rickie Loucks and Jacob Tubbs led the field to green. Sixth place starter Jason Knowles took control on lap four and went on to score his fourth win of the season at the southern tier New York oval. The Knowles brothers have now won nine of the 14 features this year at Woodhull. Loucks came home in second spot for his best finish of the 2022 season easily beating his prior best of fifth. Jason McGregor was third with another rookie, Aaron Miller, in fourth. Austin Allen was fifth.
 
The 33rd annual "Jook George Steel City Classic" was the marquee event this past weekend as the RUSH Late Model Series invaded Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway Saturday evening for the second of four appearances of the season by the Flynn's Tire Touring Series. Twenty-four-year-old Logan Roberson had a perfect evening as he set fast time, won his heat race and the dash and passed Michael Norris to collect the victory and more than $7,600 for his efforts! 
 
Daryl Charlier would lead the first five circuits before a caution slowed the field. On the ensuing restart Roberson was penalized two positions for jumping which gave Norris the opportunity to take command once the action resumed. The duo of Norris and Roberson distanced themselves from the field and entered lapped traffic by lap 26, which allowed Roberson to close in and pressure Norris for the lead. Roberson got by Norris on lap 30 and ducked under the lapped car of Josh Stoica. As Stoica tried to avoid contact with Roberson he moved up the track and directly into the path of Norris, who had gotten a tremendous run off of turn four. The contact resulted in Norris flipping violently on the frontstretch. Thankfully no other cars made contact with Norris and he was uninjured.
 
When action resumed, Roberson and Kyle Lukon quickly distanced themselves from the pack. A late race caution didn’t work in Lukon’s favor and Roberson went on to take the win, his fourth of the season and seventh of his career in Tour action, by 0.795 seconds over Lukon. Tim Shaffer had his best ever Tour finish and came home in third with Justin Chance and Mike Reft completing the top five.

In RUSH Pro Mod action at Bradford, Steve Dixon tallied his sixth win in seven tries at the oval! Zain Harvey finished in second with Tim Schram, Ian Degolier and Victor Earle, Jr. completing the top five.
 
The lone Hovis RUSH Sportsman action of the weekend took place at Sharon Speedway Saturday night. Fifteen-year-old Ben Easler drove an excellent race as he masterfully worked through lapped traffic to score an impressive victory in the non-stop event, which was completed in 6:40 minutes. It was the second straight non-stop feature at Sharon. Easler became the first repeat winner this season at Sharon with his fourth overall victory of 2022 as he continues to lead the Hovis Weekly Series and Wedge Motorsports "Route 7 Rumble" Series standings. Flynn's Tire Tour points leader, Garrett Krummert, claimed the second spot. Josh Deems was a season best third. One week after winning his first career feature, JC Boyer was fourth. Justin Shea completed the top five.

LOGAN ROBERSON SWEEPS THE NIGHT FOR 1ST CAREER PITTSBURGH WIN WORTH MORE THAN $7600 IN "JOOK GEORGE STEEL CITY CLASSIC" FOR HOVIS RUSH LATE MODEL FLYNN'S TIRE TOUR
By Mike Leone

 
August 6, 2022) - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Imperial, PA)...After rain throughout the morning and early afternoon, skies cleared at Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway and allowed the 33rd annual "Jook George Steel City Classic" presented by Nex-Gen Outdoor Services for the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Dirt Late Model Series presented by Born2Run Lubricants to be held on a humid evening in southwestern Pennsylvania. Thirty-seven teams from seven different states competed in the 13th Flynn's Tire Touring Series event of the season. Special thanks to event coordinator Branden Lockwich, who brought over $20,000 to the event, which was added to the typical RUSH Tour purse thanks to so many gracious sponsors and contributors. For the second straight year, the event was streamed live by Lernerville TV (http://dirt.tv).

 
Logan Roberson would be hard pressed to find a more perfect night than he experienced on Saturday night. The Flynn's Tire Touring Series points leader set fast time in qualifying, won his FK Rod Ends heat race, picked up the "John Beatty Memorial" Sunoco Dash victory then passed Michael Norris, who had won the last two "Jook George Steel City Classic" events, on lap 30 for his first career Pittsburgh win. Roberson earned a season best $7,639 for his fourth Tour victory of 2022, but first since May 15. While the feature was posted at $6,010 to-win, Roberson collected the $1,000 event contributor bonus from Lockwich and Miley Motor Sports.

 
"That last restart killed everything it had in me," explained the 24-year-old Waynesboro, VA driver. "Those restarts usually don't go right for me. Kyle (Lukon) was really good and I gave it everything I had. Luckily it worked out tonight. I left Michael (Norris) a lane up there then under red my dad said he flipped and I thought 'oh man that sucks'. I enjoy racing with Michael, Kyle, and Daryl Charlier- they are all respectable racers. They gave me a lane, and I gave them a lane. I have to thank the fans, Branden (Lockwich), Vicki, Mike, even though he sent me back a row on the restart I still like him, the Jook Family, and everyone that made this possible. I really do appreciate it. I wanted to win this race because Branden pours his heart into it, and I hope people keep supporting it."

 
Charlier used the outside to power into the lead at the start 50-lap feature over pole-sitter Roberson, while Norris passed Kyle Lukon for third. While Charlier and Roberson battled side-by-side for the lead, seventh starting Michael Duritsky, Jr. was on the charge as he blew into third place on lap two. Charlier and Roberson continued their side-by-side battle on laps three and four, while all eyes now shifted to sixth starting Michael Reft, who took over fourth from Norris on lap four. After a caution for Breyton Santee, six cars were involved in a crash in turn one on the restart including second place Tour points man Joe Martin.

 
On the ensuing restart, Roberson was docked two spots for jumping the restart. When racing resumed, Norris, who had fell back to fifth, had a tremendous restart and raced into the lead; meanwhile, Reft continued to move forward as he overtook Charlier for second. Roberson now had to charge forward as he got by Duritsky then Charlier for third on lap nine. Roberson quickly caught Reft in the battle for second. Lukon started third, but got shuffled back to seventh early on and was on the move. Lukon took fourth from Charlier on lap 12 before a caution for Jeremy Wonderling with 13 laps scored.

 
When racing resumed, Roberson moved past Reft for second. After back-peddling, Charlier came forward getting by Lukon for fourth on lap 19 then drove around Reft for third on lap 22. Back up front, Roberson began to close in on Norris on lap 23. Lapped traffic came into play for the first time of the event on lap 26 and three laps later Roberson was right on Norris. Roberson made what would be the winning move on lap 30. On lap 31, Roberson ducked under Josh Stoica off turn four to lap him; Stoica tried to avoid contact and moved up the race track. Norris had a big run off the top of turn four and was trying to go around both Stoica and Roberson, but launched off Stoica into the catch fence. Thankfully no one hit Norris, who climbed out of Nico Dabecco's #N1 okay after the horrifying crash. Norris was selected as the TBM Brakes "Tough Brake of the Night" recipient and earned an extra $100.  

 
Under the red flag, Charlier, who had inherited second, had to pit with a flat tire. This moved Lukon to second when racing resumed on lap 32. Roberson and Lukon quickly distanced themselves from the pack, while the battle was on for third between Reft and ninth starting Tim Shaffer. Reft and Shaffer put on a tremendous battle swapping third several times until Shaffer took the spot for good on lap 44. 

 
Lukon got one more shot alongside Roberson on the double file restart with two laps to go, but Roberson was too strong as he took the checkered flag first for his seventh career Tour win by 0.795 seconds in his Gunter's Honey/Clary's Used Cars/RBS Auto/All About Wraps-sponsored #17. Roberson was also able to extend his points lead over Martin in the $15,000 to-win Flynn's Tire Touring Series Championship.

 
Lukon, who won a Weekly Series event at Pittsburgh 14, earned $3,000 for his season's best Tour finish beating his third place from Lernerville on July 22. "The initial start of the race I was inside of him (Roberson) and Daryl (Charlier) and I don't think he knew I was there and I had to get on the brakes," explained the 32-year-old Burgettstown, Pa. standout. "I was sideways and fell all the way back to seventh, drove up to third or fourth, fell back to sixth, then came back up and got to second when Daryl had the flat under red. We were good, but the driver made a few too many mistakes and that was it. I feel like if I could catch it right, I was just as good or better than Logan, but like I said I made more mistakes than him. I'm pretty pumped to run well in these big shows and get second tonight against the region's best and some of the best in the country. Overall it was a good night for us and hopefully everyone enjoyed the show."

 
Shaffer's third place easily bested his prior career best Tour finish of sixth in the "Herb Scott Memorial" July 18, 2020. Shaffer earned $1,800 for third plus a $888 bonus from the Charlier Family "in memory of Tub Charlier" for being the highest finishing rookie racer of the "Jook George Steel City Classic" bringing his winnings to $2,688!   

 
"That was a blast and what a race with Mike Reft," expressed the 55-year-old Aliquippa, Pa. National Sprint Car Hall of Famer, who won his first career RUSH Late Model Weekly Series event on July 9 at Pittsburgh. "To run clean and give each other room- that means everything. I really enjoy this; this is fun for me, and there's not a lot of pressure.  I'm excited to run third against this group of cars; it's a big accomplishment for me. This is so different for me. There's a lot of changes on these cars. That's what is fun for me learning how to set them up and get them to work. This is by far the best car I've had. I was actually driving it instead of it driving me. You learn every time you're on the track. I'm still racing Sprint Cars, but fortunate enough to race this car 11 times this year. In the past, I'd race three times a year and it was a 2009- this is a Rocket XR1." 

 
Making his first RUSH start since 2016, central Ohio's Justin Chance drove an impressive race going 22nd to fourth giving car owner Phil Lukon two top four finishes! Chance earned $1,500 plus the Precise Racing Products "Pedal Down" Hard Charger, which was worth a $50 gift card plus $100 from Joe Wojcik and Michele Karas in his first start aboard the second Lukon #184 entry.

 
After getting as high as second, Reft dropped back to fifth at the finish for $1,400 giving him two top fives in both Pittsburgh Tour races this year. After pitting three times, Martin was able to salvage a sixth place effort worth $1,300 for his 11th top 10 in 13 Tour races. Ben Policz was seventh for $1,150 plus the $107 from Scott Gunn "in memory of Dave & Mary Lynn Nicholas". Duritsky dropped to eighth for $1,100. Dan Lepro had a solid run going 17th to ninth for $1,050 and was the lucky recipient of the $110 drawing from Nex-Gen Outdoor Services. Charlier came back for 10th after his flat tire and earned $1,000 plus $110 from the George Family "in memory of Jook George". 

 
"Futures Cup" points leader, Philip Bubeck, was 12th and earned an extra $200 from All Interior Painting bringing his winnings to $950. Cole Petrelle was 13th and received a spoiler kit from Ontime Body & Graphic plus an extra $200 from Erika Ulrich at Edward Jones Investments for running 11th on lap three.

 
Making her first ever Tour start, Kayla McManus drove around Jim Rasey on lap two and drove away to win the caution-free 12-lap Non-Qualifier worth $500. The 21-year-old Elizabeth, Pa. racer took the checkered flag first by a commanding 3.676 seconds in the Centerline Motorsports, Three Rivers Karting/Gable Inn-sponsored #00K. McManus become the amazing 60th different Non-Qualifier winner in 72 races run all-time, but first ever female victor! Fourth starting Noah Brunell passed Rasey on lap seven to finish second. Rasey dropped to third, but received a $100 gift card from Performance Bodies for being the first feature non-qualifier as he continues to lead the D&V Jewelers "Wheelman" Bonus Event Challenge Series points.  Kassidy Kamicker, the second female in the race, was fourth over Tom Klein.

 
Roberson earned his leading fifth $100 FK Rod Ends "Shock the Clock" Qualifying award with a lap of 19.193 and received an extra $100 from Our Cars Auto Detailing & Tire Service. Picking up $25 FK Rod Ends heat races victories were Roberson, Reft, Petrelle, and Policz. Roberson's third Sunoco Dash victory earned him the usual $100 Sunoco gift card, but also $404 cash "in memory of John Beatty" from the Beatty Family. Jake Gunn and Chance captured the $50 last chance B main wins. 

 
Duritsky, Lepro, and Norris picked up an extra $100 in the random draw for racers that contributed to the event, while Tour drivers Cody Dawson and Martin won $100 Sunoco fuel cards. The $50 Sunoco fuel cards went to Brunell, Bill Kessler, and James Loar.

CAREER 1ST WIN FOR JC BOYER COMES IN RUSH SPORTSMAN MODS AT SHARON; 1ST EVER RUSH LATE MODEL WIN FOR BRANDON WEIGLE AT TYLER COUNTY; STEVE DIXON DOUBLES UP AT BRADFORD WINNING RUSH PRO MOD SPECIAL & 1ST OF THE YEAR IN LM

By Marcie Barlow

 
(August 5, 2022) - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Pulaski, PA)...JC Boyer captured a memorial career first victory in Hovis Auto and Truck Supply RUSH Sportsman Modified action at Sharon Speedway and Brandon Weigle celebrated his first ever RUSH Late Model win at Tyler County Speedway this past weekend. Sophomore RUSH Late Model racer, Austin Allen, won his first of the season at Woodhull. Late Model Hall of Famer, Chub Frank, captured two RUSH Late Model wins (Stateline and Eriez), while Dennis Lunger, Jr. (RUSH Pro Mods) and Gale Ruth, Jr. (RUSH Sprint Cars) continued to tally up victories in RUSH Racing Series action throughout the region. Steve Dixon performed the sweep winning both the RUSH Pro Mods and RUSH Late Models at Bradford!     

 
The lone Hovis RUSH Sportsman Modified event of the weekend took place at Sharon Speedway Saturday evening and it was a thriller! Tony Tatgenhorst took the early lead as JC Boyer, Justin Shea and Garrett Krummert battled for second, third and fourth. By the mid-point of the event, Krummert had cleared Shea and Boyer and was battling Tatgenhorst for the lead. Krummert used the outside to get by Tatgenhorst and appeared to be headed for victory, but Boyer had other plans. Krummert got hung up in lapped traffic on the final circuit which allowed Boyer to duck down low and beat Krummert in a drag race to the finish line. The 28-year-old Burghill, OH resident scored his career first victory by a mere 0.024 seconds over Krummert!   Boyer became the fifth different winner in five races this year at Sharon and fourth driver to win his first ever at the track! Tatgenhorst came home in third followed by Shea and Rob Kristyak.
 
Youngster Brandon Weigle scored a very memorable career first RUSH Late Model victory Saturday evening at Tyler County Speedway in the 10th annual "Bud Weigle Memorial". Weigle took control when the green flag dropped and drove a smooth race to bring home the win as he became the fifth different winner of the season. Hayden Jacobs was a season best second.  Donnie Dotson, who leads the $2,000 to-win Tyler County "Track Pack" points was third.  "Futures Cup" racers Ryan Hare and George Casto III finished fourth and fifth respectively.
 
The second annual "Clayton Downs Memorial" was on tap at Genesee Speedway Saturday evening and attracted a strong field of 23 RUSH Late Models. David Pangrazio and John Waters battled for the top spot for the first seven circuits before coming together and collecting half of the field. Jimmy Johnson inherited the lead and appeared to be headed for victory when “Lady Luck” once again intervened and Johnson spun while working through lapped traffic giving the lead to Jeremy Wonderling. Having survived these two close calls Wonderling went on to lead the final 16 circuits to score his fourth victory of the season at the Batavia, NYk track as well as his fifth on the 2022 RUSH Late Model circuit. Wonderling earned $2,033! Paul Grigsby came home in second followed by Doug Ricotta, JJ Mazur, and Pangrazio.    
 
Chad Sines and John Lacki led the RUSH Late Model field to the green Friday night at Raceway 7. Sines took command with Lacki, Josh Ferry, Dennis Lunger and Billy Henry, Jr. battling for spots two through five. The red flag flew on lap five when Will Pinckney’s car was engulfed in flames as he entered the pits in turn four. Action resumed with Sines continuing to lead over Ferry, Lacki, Jay Watson and Henry.  On lap 13, Ferry nosed ahead of Sines at the stripe and Henry also overtook Lacki for third. Ferry led the remainder of the feature event and scored his second win of the season at the Conneaut, OH oval and his third victory in regional RUSH action this season. Sines held on for a season best second as he's finished in the top four in all four of his Raceway 7 starts this season. Henry was third with Lacki fourth in his first Raceway 7 start of the season. Watson completed the top five. 
 
Veteran Chub Frank started on the pole and led the first 13 laps of the RUSH Late Model main event at Stateline Speedway on Saturday. Sixth place starter Jason Genco wrestled the top spot away from Frank on lap 14, but his time out front ended just three laps later as he worked his way through the slower traffic. Frank inherited the lead on the restart and swapped the top spot with Damian Bidwell on the final six laps. As the duo entered the final turn Frank crowded Bidwell’s line causing him to spin, while Frank went on to score his second win in three starts this year at Stateline.  Scott Gurdak finished in the runner-up position for the second straight week. Ward Schell was a season best third over David Parker. Logan Jaquay recorded his first top five of the season.
 
Frank returned to victory lane on Sunday as he scored the win in RUSH Late Model action at Eriez Speedway for the first time of the season.  Jason Genco was second as he continues to lead the "Track Pack" points at both Stateline and Eriez as well as the Hovis National Weekly Series points.  Billy Henry, Jr. was third. Logan Jaquay beat his season best fifth from the night before at Stateline with a fourth.  Khole Wanzer completed the top five.        
 
Points leader Travis Campbell led the first two circuits of the RUSH Late Model main event at Winchester Speedway until mechanical woes ended his evening. Kyle Hardy inherited the lead, weathered several cautions and dominated the $1,000 to-win event to capture just his second Winchester win of the season, but sixth overall of the 2022 season in RUSH racing action. Jared Powell was second in just his second outing of the season. Jacob Burdette was a season best third in just third race of the year at Winchester. Chuck Bowie was also a season best fourth in only his third start.  Scott Sweeney, Jr. followed in fifth.
 
For the second consecutive race, Jon Lee scored the victory in RUSH Late Model action at Dog Hollow Speedway. Lee led the main event for the entire 20-lap distance to pick up the victory over "Track Pack" points leader Michael Duritsky, Jr.  Joe Martin was third in just his second start of the season.  Ryan Frazee and Colin Casale completed the top five.
 
Cole Petrelle and Dan Lepro led the RUSH Late Model main event to the green at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway Saturday evening. Petrelle grabbed the lead with Ben Policz and Daryl Charlier following close behind. The trio entered lapped traffic on the seventh circuit with the running order remaining the same until Policz used the high side of the speedway to take command on lap 15. A caution on lap 19 set up a two-lap shootout to the finish however Petrelle was unable to regain the top spot and Policz went on to score his second straight victory and third in his last five starts. Charlier, Mike Reft and Lepro rounded out the top five.
 
Second year competitor Austin Allen overcame the “sophomore jinx” at Woodhull Raceway to score a very popular win Saturday evening. Allen, who won a feature in 2021 during his rookie season, led the entire distance of the 20-lap event to pick up his season's first victory over rookie competitor Brett Marlatt. Brian Knowles beat brother Jason in the battle for the third position with Steve LeBarron finishing fifth.   
 
RUSH Late Model competitors had the weekend off at The Hill Speedway, Delaware International Speedway, Skyline Raceway and Potomac Speedway.
 
The Hovis RUSH Sprint Cars were in action at Knox Raceway Sunday evening for a make-up for the rain out the week before. Gale Ruth, Jr. started on the front row, weathered several cautions and went on to score his second straight at Knox and seventh Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series win of the season. Arnie Kent was a season best second. Blaze Myers, Andy Priest and John Mollick followed. A good field of 20 cars were on hand. The RUSH Sprints will return to Knox for the fourth time this season on August 21.
 
The Hovis Auto and Truck Supply RUSH Pro Mod Series had two events this weekend. On Saturday evening, the teams competed at Stateline Speedway with veteran Dennis Lunger, Jr. remaining perfect on the season going eight-for-eight with his ninth straight win at the track dating back to last season. Adam Ashcroft and Al Brewer battled for the top spot for the first 10 laps while Lunger worked his way through the field from the 12th starting spot. On lap 14, Lunger joined Ashcroft and Brewer in a three-car battle for the top spot. Lunger took over the top spot one lap later and went on to win his 10th of the season overall in RUSH action.  Brewer, Zain Harvey, Ashcroft, and Tyler Oakes were second through fifth.

 
On Sunday, the RUSH Pro Mod Series held their seventh annual "Manufacturers Night" presented by MSD Performance at Bradford Speedway as drivers shared in $14,500 of product giveaways. The 23 teams that competed was an all-time division record high car count! Steve Dixon scored the win and a $1,500 payday! It was Dixon’s fifth win in six attempts at the Northern Pa. oval. Tyler Oakes came home in second to score his second top five finish of the weekend. "Futures Cup" points leader, Zain Harvey, was third for his best career Bradford finish. Lunger was fourth in just his third Bradford start of the season. Victor Earle, Jr. completed the top five.

 
Dixon then came back to score the RUSH Late Model victory at track in just his fourth overall RUSH Late Model start of the season. Jeremy Wonderling was second to maintain the "Track Pack" points lead. Jeff Hoffman returned for the first time since opening night and was third. Ward Schell recorded his second top five of the weekend in fourth. Flynn's Tire Tour regular, Andy Michael, was fifth.

BIG WESTERN PA DOUBLEHEADER WEEKEND FOR HOVIS RUSH LATE MODEL FLYNN'S TIRE TOUR; $3000 TO-WIN AT DOG HOLLOW FRIDAY & "JOOK GEORGE STEEL CITY CLASSIC" AT PITTSBURGH SATURDAY FOR MINIMUM $6010 TO-WIN
By Mike Leone

 
(August 3, 2022) - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Pulaski, PA)...The Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Racing Series presented by Born2Run Lubricants is set for a busy weekend. The Flynn's Tire Touring Series for both the RUSH Late Models and RUSH Sportsman Modifieds will be at Lernerville Speedway on Friday night (July 22) for the "RUSH Summer Showcase, which will also include the RUSH Sprint Cars. The Flynn's Tire Touring Series for the Late Models then heads to Tyler County Speedway on Saturday night for the first time ever. Meanwhile, the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds will be at Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway on Saturday night, while the RUSH Sprint Cars will return to Knox Raceway on Sunday in an Equipment Rental Options Weekly Series event. Warmups begin at 6:30 p.m. on Friday night and 6:45 p.m. on Saturday night at Tyler County.
(Pulaski, PA)...After a weekend off, the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Dirt Late Model Series presented by Born2Run Lubricants is set to resume its Flynn's Tire Touring Series this weekend with a doubleheader of events in western Pennsylvania. On Friday night (August 5), the Series will visit Dog Hollow Speedway located near Strongstown and then will head to Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway in Imperial on Saturday night. Friday will pay $3,000 to-win in addition to $600 of bonus monies put up by Ontime Body & Graphic with Saturday's "Jook George Steel City Classic" presented by Nex-Gen Outdoor Services offering a minimum $6,010 to-win! Warm-ups begin at 7 p.m. on Friday night and 6 p.m. on Saturday night. There is a rain date of Sunday for Pittsburgh; however, the track will do whatever possible to get the show in on Saturday night. 

 
Even though Dog Hollow Speedway was one of the first four founding speedways to run Chevrolet Performance Crate Late Models in the Northeast weekly beginning in 2007, last year was the first time the RUSH Touring Series had ever made an appearance at the track. Kyle Hardy went down in the history books as the inaugural winner as he went on to win the 2021 Flynn's Tire Tour Championship. The Tour was scheduled to compete at Dog Hollow on July 1, but was rained out. 

 
The 2022 season is the Indiana County speedplant's 24th anniversary, which began operating in 1998. After being closed for the latter part of 2019 and all of 2020, Dog Hollow has been under the helm of new management team, RFR Motorsports, beginning in 2021. The RFR partnership includes western Pennsylvania residents Mark McClellan and Kyle Smith, Sr. 

 
Thus far this season, Dog Hollow has completed six Hovis Weekly Series. Michael Duritsky, Jr. won the first three then it was Ryan Frazee winning his first career RUSH feature on July 8. Most recently, Jon Lee, a newcomer to RUSH, has won the last two features. Duritsky leads Dog Hollow's $1,000 to-win "Track Pack" points. 

 
Mark McClellan, who owns Ontime Body & Graphic in addition to being the co-promoter of Dog Hollow, has posted the following $600 of bonuses for Friday night:
 
·        $100 to the last car on the lead lap in the feature
·        $100 to the hard charger in the feature
·        $100 to the hard luck recipient
·        $100 to the Ontime Spoiler Alert recipient (13th place finisher)
·        $100 to a driver in the top 10 in track points (random draw at the drivers meeting)
·        $50 to the B main winner(s)
·        $50 to the non-qualifier winner

 
Saturday night will mark the second of four 2022 appearances by the Flynn's Tire Tour at "Dirt's Monster Half-Mile". Michael Norris won the $3,000 "Herb Scott Memorial" on July 2. For the second straight year, the "Jook George Steel City Classic" will be streamed live thanks to Lernerville TV (https://dirt.tv).
Starting in 2015, Branden Lockwich took up the effort to make the "Jook George Steel City Classic" the biggest race in the tri-state area for the RUSH Late Models. The event has continued to grow in stature. In 2017, the event was a Tour race for the first time and drew 43 cars with Mike Pegher, Jr. capturing the $4,010 win. In 2018, a record 51 cars were on hand with Jacob Hawkins scoring the $5,010 win. The 2019 event was the richest as Kyle Lukon scored the $10,010 win and the extra $1,000 contributor bonus. While the COVID-19 pandemic left uncertainty for the 2020 event, Lockwich still worked wonders and brought over $17,000 to the event, which was won by Norris in his first RUSH start. Norris was able to take home $6,010 and the $1,000 contributor bonus. Norris repeated his fortunes last year once again collecting $7,010.  

 
In 2019, Miley Motor Sports and Lockwich came up with the idea to award the feature winner an additional $1,000 bonus if he or she financially contributed a minimum of $50 to the event. Contributing drivers are also eligible for three $100 cash drawings at the drivers meeting. Any driver that still would like to contribute to expand the purse and be eligible for the bonuses can contact Lockwich at 412-639-3723 or see him at the track on Saturday. Contributions from any individuals or businesses are also still welcome.   

 
This year's event will offer the second richest payoff in event history as both the feature and non-qualifier purses have increased over the past two years. This year, start money has been increased to a minimum of $500 with many of the other positions also increasing. The non-qualifier will pay $500 to-win thanks to additional monies from Matt Knupp and All Interior Painting. 

 
The "Tub Charlier Rookie of the Race" will pay $888 this year thanks to the Charlier Family (highest finishing driver that hasn't made the Jook feature since 2016)! The "John Beatty Memorial" Sunoco Dash will pay $404 to-win thanks to the Beatty Family plus $100 Sunoco fuel card with a payoff for positions two through five as well. The B main winners will receive $50.

 
Other bonus monies include $107 for 7th place from Scott Gunn in memory of Dave & Mary Lynn Nicholas, $110 for 10th place in memory of Jook George, $200 for 12th place from All Interior Painting, $110 for the leader on lap 10 in memory of Jook George, $200 to 11th place on lap three from Erika Ulrich at Edward Jones Investments, and $110 luck of the draw from event presenting sponsor Nex-Gen Outdoor Services (must have decal on)

 
William Thomas "Jook" George had a brief driving career himself, but as he turned to car owner he chose and had for most of his racing career the #10 and that was in honor of his racing hero, Lou Blaney, who drove his car on a couple occasions. Other highlights of his career was being nominated as the Sportsman of the Year at PPMS, being nominated into the Pittsburgh Circle Track Hall of Fame, winning the track championship at PPMS in 1990 with John Beatty behind the wheel, and winning the Fall Classic in 1993 with Bill Yakin, also at PPMS. His most dominant stretch as a car owner came in the late ‘70s when Earl Teeters was his driver.
 
"Miley Motor Sports is ecstatic about the 33rd edition of the RUSH Dirt Late Model Series 'Jook George Classic' to honor our great friend of racing, Jook George," expressed PPMS promoter Matt Miley. "We can’t thank Branden, the RUSH Team, and all who have contributed enough. It’s a win, win, win, win- racers, fans, sponsors, and the Speedway." 
 
"This is the type of thing that energizes Miley Motor Sports to keep Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway alive," continued Miley. "It’s been a long ride, 34 consecutive seasons! Age and what comes with it takes a toll on us. We simply can’t do everything ourselves. Younger folks who love the sport stepping up and making some of our best events is unbelievably refreshing. It energizes an old ownership team. A very sincere thank you from all of us at Miley Motor Sports!"
 
"It's really amazing how this event has grown and how so many people have gotten behind it to make this all possible," expressed RUSH Director Vicki Emig. "Branden has led the efforts of transforming this from a special weekly event to what has become one of the richest RUSH events of the season. We can't thank the George Family, Miley Motor Sports, Branden and so many others for their amazing contributions, while allowing us to present this as RUSH Late Model Touring Series event. Faced with the COVID-19 pandemic two years ago and now these trying economic times, Branden has continued to come through with tremendous fund raising efforts!"

 
There have been 23 RUSH Tour events completed at Pittsburgh with 13 different winners all-time. Kyle Lukon leads the list with five including a sweep of all three events in 2019. Norris has moved up to second with four victories, while Ryan Montgomery has three. The only other repeat winner is track regular Daryl Charlier. Single wins go to Tommy Schirnhofer, Jr., Colton Flinner, John Mollick, Mike Pegher, Jr., Jacob Hawkins, Garret Paugh, Levi Crowl, Jeremy Wonderling, and Kyle Hardy.

 
Pittsburgh has been able to complete 12 Hovis Weekly Series events this season with nine different winners! Ben Policz leads the way with three, while Norris is the only other multiple winner. Single victories have gone to Charlier, Lukon, Michael Reft, Cole Petrelle, Philip Bubeck, Tim Shaffer, and Joe Martin.

 
Thus far this year, the Flynn's Tire Touring Series has completed 12 events and like Pittsburgh has had an amazing nine different winners with an average car count of 36 per event! Virginia racer Logan Roberson continues to lead the Flynn's Tire Tour points thanks to three victories and 10 top 5 finishes. Joe Martin has been in second for much of the year and is the only other multiple winner, but trails by 24 points. Three-time Tour champion, Jeremy Wonderling is coming off a season best second at Lernerville as he's pulled away from his brother Brady in the battle for the third spot. Matt Latta has finished in the top six in four of the last six races for fifth in points. Completing the top 10 in points are Breyton Santee, Andy Michael, Ashton Briggs, Jonathan Stockdale, and Brandt Graham. 

 
Each night will include $100 "Shock the Clock" Qualifying ($200 at Pittsburgh thanks to Our Cars Auto Detailing & Tire Service) and $25 to-win heat races presented by FK Rod Ends. The Sunoco Dash will set the beginning rows of the feature lineups and will award the winner a $100 Sunoco fuel gift card. The "Fill'er up with Sunoco Bucks" program will include an additional $400 of Sunoco fuel card giveaways each night; two $100 random draws for drivers in the top 15 of Tour points and another four $50 random draws for all other competitors. 

 
Precise Racing Products will award a $50 gift card for the "Pedal Down" Hard Charger that passes the most cars in the feature each night.  The TBM Brakes “Tough Brake of the Night” will award three bottles of Xtreme6 Racing Brake Fluid each night. The feature winner each night will receive a 5-Gallon Race Jug from Precise. Ontime Body & Graphic's "Spoiler Alert" will award a spoiler kit to the 13th place finisher on the first night and the 14th place finisher on the second night (note: if a driver has already won a spoiler this season, spoiler will be awarded to the next position). Performance Bodies will award a $100 gift card to the first non-qualifier each night part of the "Nosed Out" program.
