Dirt Draft to Crown 2021 LOLMDS Fantasy Champion
Batavia, OHIO (January 20, 2021) - Dirt Draft entered the fantasy sports world as the first of its kind in July of 2019, covering grassroots short track racing events of all types. Since then, Dirt Draft has prided itself on working strategically with national series', regional tours, racetracks, and drivers to enhance overall fan engagement across the nation.

After a successful 2020 season, Dirt Draft and the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series have come to an agreement that positions Dirt Draft to remain the "Official Fantasy Sports Provider" of the series in 2021. Dirt Draft and the LOLMDS are excited to continue working together and already have an array of exciting additions in the works for this coming season. These additions cater to not only the users and fans, but to the drivers following the series as well. Much like last year, both parties are eager to work together as there is collectively a thriving desire to progress the overall fan experience in the racing industry as a whole.
For the fans, the opportunity to be crowned the 2021 LOLMDS Dirt Draft Fantasy Champion seems to be in the spotlight of 'what to pay attention to'. Not only does this title come with bragging rights, but the fantasy champion will be invited to the LOLMDS banquet in December to be recognized in front of and alongside some of the nation's most elite teams and drivers.

For the drivers, have you ever heard someone say, "you can't win Hot Laps?", well now you can. In 2021, Dirt Draft is fixed to become a contingency sponsor of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series by introducing the Hot Lap Award. The driver with the most overall fastest lap time in Hot Laps at the conclusion of the season will be presented with a $500 check courtesy of Dirt Draft Fantasy Racing.

Batavia, OH (December 31, 2020) - Night 2 of the Optima Batteries I-80 Nationals - Presented by Optima Batteries from I-80 Speedway, in Greenwood, NE is on MAVTV Motorsports Network, tonight at 9 PM EST, with a re-airing at 12 AM EST. 

One thing the top three agreed on, after Night 2 at I-80, was that the lead was the hardest spot of all. In victory lane, "I was moving around quite a bit on the track and we were in the catbirds seat for once, running in second. He was just a sitting duck up there; he didn't know where to go." This night set the stage for the $30,000-to-win I-80 Nationals finale on Saturday. The broadcast will include driver interviews, in-car cameras, and various technical segments.

Speedweeks 2021 Schedule Amendment

Batavia, OH (December 12, 2020) - As 2020 comes to an end, the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and our staff look forward to new beginnings and a new year, however, due to COVID-19, some of the challenges from this past race season will carry over into the new year.


Since 2014, the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series has kicked off Speed Weeks with the Super Bowl of Racing at Golden Isles Speedway. However, due to the rapid increase in COVID-19 cases in their region, the team at Golden Isles Speedway has decided to cancel the event for 2021. 
 
Golden Isles Speedway officials stated, "It's been a very difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Super Bowl of Racing. We feel that we must prioritize the health and safety of those that make such an event great - drivers, crew members, spectators, sponsors, vendors, and other patrons. We are disappointed in this development, but we feel it's something we must do. We look forward to working with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series to host the Super Bowl of Racing in 2022 - as we all know and love.

The Series supports and respects the Golden Isles decision and looks forward to returning to Brunswick, GA again, next season.

For 2021, the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Speedweeks will now begin with practice at East Bay Raceway Park, on January 24th.

BRONSON BANKS CRATE RACIN’ USA VOLUSIA $10K AFTER PAGE DQ

 
              BARBERVILLE, FL – Kyle Bronson of Brandon, FL was awarded the $10,000 victory in the 2nd Annual Sunshine Nationals for the Newsome Raceway Parts Crate Racin’ USA Dirt Late Model Series on Saturday night at Volusia Speedway Park driving the Brandon Ford Rocket. It was the second straight Saturday night $10,000 win in the Sunshine Nationals for Bronson.

 
              The win in the 30-lap main event came Bronson’s way after Michael Page of Douglasville, GA was disqualified in the post-race technical inspection. Page’s Baird Motorsports Special was disqualified for a valve spring installation height infraction outside the parameters set by Chevrolet Performance.

 
              In addition to winning Round 3 of the 6th Annual Crate Racin’ USA Winter Shootout Series, Bronson also takes Round 1 of the Crate Racin’ USA E-Z-GO $100,000 Challenge Series, a series in a series made up of eight $10,000-to-win races, and a $20,000-to-win race during the 2021 racing season.

WELSHAN CRUISES TO CRATE RACIN’ USA ICE BOWL WIN AT TALLADEGA SHORT TRACK


 
              EASTABOGA, AL – Jason Welshan of Maryville, TN drove the Competition Race Parts Special to a wire-to-wire $3,000 win on Sunday in the 50-lap main event for the Newsome Raceway Parts Crate Racin’ USA Dirt Late Model Series in the 30th Annual Ice Bowl at Talladega Short Track. It was also the opening race of the 2021 Crate Racin’ USA Winter Shootout Series.

 
              Dylan Knowles of Lanett, AL took the second spot in the K-Line Logistics Rocket and third went to Eli Beets of Knoxville, TN in the Beets Racing Special. Cody Overton of Evans, GA finished fourth in the Budweiser Special, and fifth was Jadon Frame of Decherd, TN in the Frame Racing Special.

 
              Duke Blant of Carrollton, GA finished sixth in the Duke Racing Rocket and Tanner Collins of Franklin, GA was seventh in the Newnan Bonding Rocket. Cruz Skinner of Oxford, AL took the eighth spot in the Skinner’s Body Shop Rocket, and the ninth spot went to Chase Walls of Decherd, TN in the Powers Machine Special. 

 
Sterling Freeman of Pell City, AL rounded out the top ten in the Freeman Racing Special. Monte Skinner of Saraland, AL started the Capital Race Cars Special 18th and finished 11th to earn the Knowles Race Parts and Bodies Hard Charger of the Race Award.

 
              In preliminary action on Saturday, Knowles set fast time honors among the 49 entrants in Boyd Built Fabricators Group Qualifying with a lap around the 1/3-mile clay oval in 14.774 seconds. Knowles then won the first of four ten-lap KRC Power Steering Heat Races to earn the pole position for Sunday’s main event.

 
              The other three KRC Power Steering Heat Races were won by Beets, Jake Knowles of Rome, GA in the Knowles Race Parts and Bodies Special, and Welshan. On Sunday, the three KRC Power Steering B-Main Races were won by Riley Hickman of Cleveland, TN in the Competition Race Parts Special, Monte Skinner, and Drew Kennedy of Lansing, TN in the Schubert Monument Sales Rocket.

 
              Welshan took the lead at the drop of the green flag from his outside front row starting spot followed by Dylan Knowles, Beets, Jake Knowles, and Overton. The 24-car field settled into the sweet spot in the bottom groove of the track that saw a total of over 320 race cars in eight different Divisions compete on the surface during the four-day event.

 
              By the eighth tour, Welshan began to encounter the cars on the tail end of the lead lap. That enabled the top second through fourth-place cars to close in on the leader. Donald Johns of Summertown, TN spun on the backstretch on lap 12 right in front of Welshan. Welshan was able to get by without any contact, which earned him the VP Racing Lubricants Slick Move of the Race Award. 

 
Doubled up behind Welshan for the Dixie-Style Double File restart in second through tenth respectively were Dylan Knowles, Beets, Jake Knowles, Overton, Frame, Collins, Walls, defending and two-time Ice Bowl Champion Jimmy Elliott of Cleveland, TN, and Buddy George of Ragland, AL.

 
              A multi-car tangle on the restart as drivers starting on the outside tried to wrestle their way to the sweet spot of the track in the bottom groove brought out the red flag and took out the Car Smart Auto Sales Special of Elliott and the George Racing Special of George. The next restart was a single-file affair.

 
              After the restart, Welshan continued his domination of the race, pulling out to a full straightaway advantage over Dylan Knowles. That big lead was erased when the caution flag came out on lap 22 when Jake Traylor of LaGrange, GA stalled the Traylor Racing Special on the front straightaway.

 
              Welshan led Dylan Knowles, Beets, Jake Knowles, Overton, Frame, Duke, Collins, Cruz Skinner, and Walls down for the restart. Jake Knowles stalled on the backstretch and out of the fourth spot on lap 25 to bring out the fourth and final caution flag of the race. 

 
After the restart, Welshan reached the last car on the lead lap, Jody Knowles of Tyrone, GA in the Clayton Signs Special. A driver could move out of the sweet spot of the race track to attempt a pass, but to do so would be done at their own peril. Welshan stayed behind Jody Knowles for the final ten laps of the race and took a .700 second margin of victory under the checkered flag.
Round 2 of the 2021 Crate Racin’ USA Winter Shootout Series will be on Thursday night with a $1,500-to-win race at Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, FL. It will be the opening race of the 2nd Annual Sunshine Nationals with a $2,000-to-win race on Friday night, and a $10,000-to-win race on Saturday night.

Cochran Motor Speedway New Year's Bash and Street Stock World Championship Postponed

Mother Nature Claims Victory
Adairsville, GA – Officials at Cochran Motor Speedway along with the Crate Racin’ USA staff have made the decision to postpone the Street Stock World Championship and New Year’s Bash event set for December 31st through January 2nd, 2021. “Weather forecasts over the last few days have not improved and have actually pushed the possibility of rain into Saturday as well as heavy rain Thursday and Friday,” stated Crate Racin’ USA Series Director Adam Stewart. “Chris Martin and I talked and decided it was best to give everyone ample notice to make alternate plans as the New Year’s holiday falls during the scheduled events.”

 
Track and Series officials are working to find a suitable make-up for both the $5,000 to Win Street Stock World Championship for “The Baddest Street Stocks on the Planet” as well as the $10,000 to Win New Year’s Bash that was slated to kick of the Inaugural season of the E-Z-GO $100,000 Challenge Series that consists of Chevrolet Performance 604-powered Dirt Late Model events paying $10,000 to win or more for the 2021 season. Cochran Motor Speedway owner/promoter Chris Martin said, “We are looking at schedules and considering events both at other tracks and currently on the schedule for Cochran and the series to try and find a suitable make-up that works for everyone involved.” “Look for updates regarding potential make-up dates and event announcements through both the track’s social media and website as well as the series’ websites and social accounts in the coming weeks.”

 
The economical Aluminum Head, Steel Block, Chevrolet Performance 604 Circle Track Engine is the engine of choice for the Newsome Raceway Parts Crate Racin’ USA Dirt Late Model Series competitors. The Chevrolet Performance 604 Engine is in stock and available for free next day delivery from Newsome Raceway Parts in Hartsville, SC.

WATERSTONE MORTGAGE OF HERMITAGE IN CONJUNCTION WITH PACE PERFORMANCE TO PRESENT "LOYALTY PROGRAM" IN 2021; 1 LUCKY RUSH MOD RACER WILL WIN A CHEVROLET PERFORMANCE 602 SPORTSMAN MODIFIED ENGINE PACKAGE VALUED AT $8000+
By Mike Leone

 
(December 20, 2020) - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Pulaski, PA)...After the COVID-19 pandemic dealt a blow to the 2020 Pace Performance RUSH Sportsman Modified together with Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC season, the Series is set to come out of the gates in 2021 with guns a' blazing. Not only will the Hovis Auto & Truck Weekly Series Championship see a 36% increase in the point fund from past seasons and an increased point fund for the second year of the Wedge Motorsports "Route 7 Rumble" Series, but now the Series is proud to announce a new "Loyalty Program" presented by new marketing partner Waterstone Mortgage of Hermitage.
 
One lucky RUSH Modified racer will win a complete race ready Chevrolet Performance 602 Sportsman Modified crate engine package (carb-to-pan) valued at $8,000+ from Pace Performance; this will be the most valuable product to ever be given away in the history of the RUSH Racing Series! 
 
True to its name, the "Loyalty Program" presented by Waterstone Mortgage of Hermitage will reward loyalty. In order to be eligible for the engine giveaway, drivers must be a RUSH member and cannot compete in a non-RUSH sanctioned Sportsman Modified event the same night as a contested RUSH-sanctioned event throughout the 2021 season.

 
Eligible drivers competing in 25-49% of total completed RUSH events will receive one chance for the engine giveaway; eligible drivers competing in 50-74% of total completed RUSH events will receive four chances; eligible drivers competing in 75-99% of total completed RUSH events will receive eight chances; and any eligible drivers that compete in 100% of the total completed RUSH events will receive 10 chances!

 
"We're always looking to be creative and keep things fresh by offering new programs to those that support us," expressed RUSH Director Vicki Emig. "The 2021 season will mark year number eight for the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds and will be the biggest yet. With the Hovis Weekly Series Championship point fund increasing for the second time, the Wedge Motorsports 'Route 7 Rumble' Series increasing, the traditional Manufacturers Night that just saw well over $15,000 of valuable product distributed, and now the addition of the 'Loyalty Program' will make 2021 an exciting year."

 
The engine package will be drawn at the season finale on October 16 at Lernerville Speedway's "Steel City Stampede" by a Waterstone Mortgage representative. This will mark the first time since 2015 that an engine has been given away, and never a complete race ready (carb to pan) engine, which is valued at over $8,000! During the inaugural 2014 season, Jeremy Zufall won the engine giveaway presented by Sweeney/Pace, while current RUSH Sportsman Modified racer Kole Holden was the lucky recipient in 2015.

 
The promotion is made possible by Sara Cipriano, who is a Mortgage Loan Originator at the Waterstone Mortgage Hermitage, Pa. branch. Sara is the mother of 2020 Hovis Auto & Truck Supply "Futures Cup" Champion, Ayden Cipriano. The 14-year-old RUSH Mod racer from Hermitage recorded five top 5s and nine top 10s including a career best third at Pittsburgh's Pennsylvania Motor Speedway this past season! Ayden also finished sixth in both the Hovis Weekly Series Championship and the Wedge Motorsports "Route 7 Rumble" Series points!

 
"Sara recently contacted us about getting involved with the Series through Waterstone Mortgage," explained Emig. "We wanted to add something unique, and felt this yearlong promotion for her was something the racers will really look forward to, and what a way for a loyal racer to end the year by winning a $8,000 package thanks to Waterstone Mortgage of Hermitage! Sara's dad Wally Stearns was a loyal racer in the Mini Stocks during my ownership of Mercer Raceway Park, and now to have his daughter Sara and grandson Ayden involved with the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds is pretty special."

 
Other RUSH corporate marketing partners who joined with Waterstone Mortgage and Pace Performance to complete the Chevrolet Performance 602 "race ready" engine package are the following: Holley Performance Products, MSD Performance, Schoenfeld Headers, and Jones Racing Products, as well as 955 Automotive, Ingram Engines, and Race 1.

 
For more than 20 years, Waterstone Mortgage has worked with families across the nation, helping them achieve their homeownership dreams. Waterstone Mortgage was founded in 2000 in suburban Milwaukee with a small 3-person team. By 2006, Waterstone Mortgage had grown to 58 employees in two states. In 2013, their corporate team relocated to their current Home Office in Pewaukee- a 56,000-square-foot facility. Over the years, Waterstone Mortgage has won a variety of top workplace awards and gained national recognition for their loan production.

STATELINE & ERIEZ SPEEDWAYS JOIN FORCES TO GROW RUSH STOCK CARS IN 2021; WEEKLY SERIES POINT FUND EXPANDS; NOW $7500 WITH $2000 TO-WIN PLUS $1250 MINI SERIES POINT FUND ADDED

By Mike Leone

 
(December 16, 2020) - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Pulaski, PA)...The Pace Performance RUSH Stock Car Series together with Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC is pleased to announce the addition of Stateline and Eriez Speedways to the recently announced Series. The two well-known speedways, located just 40 miles from each other, will be a catalyst for the growth of the division throughout the northern end of the region. Dog Hollow Speedway was announced on November 23 as the flagship speedway operating on Friday nights. 

 
With now three regional facilities taking part in the RUSH Stock Car program, the inaugural Weekly Series Championship will increase nearly $2,500 going from a $5,000 10-position paying point fund to a $7,500 15-position paying point fund. The 2021 champion will now take home $2,000!  

 
In addition, RUSH will post an additional $1,250 minimum point fund for a Mini Series of events between the speedways with dates to be announced. The Mini Series will include approximately six higher paying events that will offer cumulative points towards the five-position point fund that pays $500 to the champion. The Mini Series events will also count towards the Weekly Series Championship.

 
A $200 to-win "Futures Cup" Championship will also be posted for eligible teenage racers. Also, as is the case with the other RUSH divisions, a "Manufacturers Night" presented by MSD Performance will take place at Dog Hollow on a date to be announced where thousands of dollars of valuable product giveaways will be distributed. 

 
The RUSH Stock Cars will look like "stock cars" and be powered by Chevrolet Performance 602 crate engines on sealed/spec Bilstein Shocks, RUSH 91 pump fuel, and Hoosier H500 8" tires. Those four key "cost containment" elements have already proved very successful in the RUSH Sportsman Modified and Sprint Car divisions, and are now expected to drive the same results in the RUSH Stock Car division. Questions on these components, rules, and membership should be directed to RUSH. Dog Hollow has already seen a tremendous response since the initial announcement was made; Speedway officials feel there could be 10-12 cars on opening night. 

 
"Dave (Alexander) contacted me months ago with his thoughts on a crate 'stock car' division and they were honestly similar to what Dog Hollow's Mark McClellan and Kyle Smith were thinking," explained RUSH Director Vicki Emig. "Dog Hollow has forged the path and now with Stateline and Eriez, historically known as strong Saturday-Sunday night partners in the north, we couldn't have asked for a better trio of speedways to begin developing this division. I think the timing is perfect for the RUSH Stock Cars, and we expect the division to grow very quickly; and we continue to be in discussions with other promoters about the division." 

 
Stateline will run the RUSH Stock Cars weekly on Saturday nights in 2021 beginning with a feature only until 13 or more cars are present, while Eriez will run the division bi-weekly on Sunday nights alternating with their Pro Stock division.

 
"The region needs an entry level 'stock car' division," stated soon-to-be third year Eriez owner-promoter Dave Alexander, who also features the RUSH Late Models weekly. "While the Pro Stock division has always featured good racing at Eriez, there is no affordable entry level division to get into racing outside of the Mini Stocks. And while our Mini Stock class continues to grow, we'd like to offer this option to get into an affordable full-size race car." 

 
"I had been thinking about coming up with some entry level Stock Car division even before RUSH made their announcement," added Alexander. "The RUSH package makes sense by keeping the rules package uniform and they supplement it with the point funds, Manufacturers Night, teching, and more. Raceway 7 also runs the Pro Stocks bi-weekly. We'll work with them so the Pro Stock racers have ample nights to race. By announcing the RUSH Stock Cars now it still gives those interested a chance to get a car ready for the upcoming season. We realize it will be a building process, but felt it's better to begin now than possibly wait until 2022."

 
"There's no question there needs to be an affordable entry level, full-bodied division for regional racers," stated Stateline owner-promoter Jean Scott, whose track also runs the RUSH Late Models an RUSH Pro Mods weekly. "We need to give young racers an opportunity to affordably get into a full-size race car as well as preserve current racers, who are struggling financially to be competitive. We feel the RUSH Stock Cars division is the answer for both of these situations and need to start it sooner than later to develop this concept. Jim (Scott) has always wanted to see Stock Cars return to looking like 'stock cars', which is what the RUSH body package addresses."

 
Chevrolet Performance 602 Stock Car divisions continue to flourish across the country with strong weekly car counts by providing an affordable and exciting option for those wanting to participate in a stock car division. A tentative set of rules, which closely mirrors several other prominent national sanctioning bodies, is available at the following link: https://rushstockcars.com/2021%20Stock%20Car%20Rules.pdf. Please contact the RUSH Office for any rules questions.

 
RUSH membership is $125, which makes driver eligible for the points funds and Manufacturers Night. Membership also includes a $100,000 excess participant accident insurance policy when competing in a RUSH-sanctioned event.

 
Interested speedways in the RUSH Stock Cars are urged to contact the office at 724-964-9300 or e-mail info@rushracingseries.com. Drivers interested in the division are asked to e-mail their contact info to be added to the driver contact list to keep abreast of any updates concerning the division.
