CUMMINS COLLECTS TRI-STATE FINALE;

STOCKON SEALS ISW TITLE


 

By: Richie Murray - USAC Media


 

Haubstadt, Indiana (August 2, 2020).........Sunday's NOS Energy Drink Indiana Sprint Week finale at Tri-State Speedway turned out to be a homecoming of sorts for a pair of drivers who reside within a stone's throw of the Haubstadt, Ind. track.


 

Kyle Cummins, about 15 minutes down the road in Princeton, continued his mastery of the quarter-mile dirt oval by winning Sunday's 30-lap feature all while putting his name atop the leaderboard in terms of USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car feature victories at Tri-State with five, alongside Daron Clayton and Kevin Thomas, Jr.


 

Meanwhile, the series' Ironman in consecutive feature starts at 310, Chase Stockon, hails from Fort Branch, a literal seven-minute drive northbound on US 41 from the track.  Of those 310 consecutive USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car starts, perhaps few have generated the same type of personal satisfaction as did capturing his first Indiana Sprint  Week title after a decade-straight of trying.


 

Entering Sunday's feature, six drivers remained mathematically eligible to secure the Indiana Sprint Week title.  Stockon trailed Justin Grant by just five points, and those two, along with Brady Bacon, C.J. Leary, Chris Windom and Logan Seavey, were separated by a mere 35 points between them.


 

Cummins, who had been eliminated from ISW title contention following the heat races earlier in the evening, now simply had visions of a feature win dancing on his mind and was slotted to start the feature event from the pole position.  Stockon, meanwhile, started 7th and Grant 11th.


 

The initial two attempts of taking the green flag resulted in a pair of stackups, the first of which saw a four-car turn one pile-up involving between Kent Schmidt, Jadon Rogers, Stevie Sussex and Critter Malone.  The ensuing try saw Bacon, Malone and Aric Gentry stop on the front straightaway prior to hitting the start/finish line.  Bacon, who trailed the ISW points by nine entering the feature, pulled off to the work area under yellow and briefly returned, only to drop to the infield prior to the race's resumption to finish 23rd.


 

The third start was the charm, but this time Chris Windom, 5th in the ISW standings coming into the A, ripped around Cummins from his outside front row starting position to lead the opening lap.  Cummins didn't allow Windom to distance himself too far and roared to the lead past Windom on the second lap with a turn three slider.  Fourth starting Shane Cottle mimicked the turn three maneuver past Windom a lap later for 2nd while Garrett Aitken slotted himself into 3rd.


 

By lap seven, Cummins had established a full-straightaway lead over Cottle, and by lap nine, was amidst a flurry of traffic at the tail end of the lead lap.  However, a yellow for 6th running Tony DiMattia, making his first series start of 2020, rode the top of the turn four wall before coming to a rest on all fours back on the racing surface, which halted the action on the 10th lap.


 

Aitken, making the best run of his USAC Sprint Car career in just his sixth series start, threw his hat into contention with a turn one slide job for 2nd by Cottle on the 11th lap.  A lap later, Aitken tagged the wall in turn two causing him to lose a couple spots while, behind him, four drivers on the fringes of the top-ten - Carson Short, Kevin Thomas Jr., C.J. Leary and Brandon Mattox - were stacked deep and stopped in turn one.


 

The timely yellow for Aitken put the Paris, Ill. driver back in second behind Cummins where he proceeded to slide by Cummins for the race lead in turn one.  Quickly, Cummins cut back under Aitken at the exit of turn two to retain the lead, then slid himself through turn three to disavow any countermeasure from Aitken for the time being.


 

Following a plethora of precipitation that fell in recent days, Cummins hypothesized that the track had a much different feel than on this night than he is accustomed to.  In response, Cummins found comfort up top that gained him a straightaway lead just prior to the yellow.  Then came Aitken.


 

"I was being patient, not doing anything crazy, and all of a sudden here he comes, and I was like 'oh,' it's time to step it up a little bit," Cummins recalled.  I just turned down and got him back.  I could tell I was really going to have to step it up, and after that, I kind of moved my line around on the track a little bit.  I moved a little bit more down to the bottom, then I got super tight, so I was grabbing shocks.  Every yellow, I kept loosening it up, loosening it up.  Even at the end I was still super tight."


 

For virtually the entire second half of the race, Cummins' progress was unimpeded at the front, and a watchful eye was turned toward the ISW title race.  Point leader Grant, who had yet to finish outside the top-10 in his first 15 series starts to the season, was mired back in 13th.  Simultaneously, Stockon was surging down the stretch, to 4th by Windom with three laps remaining and to 3rd two laps from the finish by Aitken, who began to run out fuel just prior to losing the second position to Cottle.


 

Cummins finished off his masterpiece with a 1.423 margin of victory in picking up his 7th career USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car win, equaling the likes of Kevin Doty, Darren Hagen, Kenny Irwin, Jr., Doug Kalitta, Jim Keeker, Bobby Santos, Brady Short, Kevin Thomas, Bobby Unser and Josh Wise.  Cottle, Stockon, Aitken and Windom rounded out the top-five at the finish.


 

Following a one-race winless "streak" in sprint car competition at Tri-State back in June, Cummins has since gotten off the schneid by picking up back where he left off, winning an MSCS race there on Independence Day Weekend, then winning Sunday night's USAC return despite having to search and find the winning combination throughout the evening aboard his Rock Steady Racing/Mid-America Safety Solutions - Greenwell Auto Body - Lucas Oil Center/Mach-1/Foxco Chevy.


 

"We didn't get that last USAC win here because of some motor problems," Cummins remembered.  "We won the time after, although I didn't feel great, and even the beginning of the night tonight, I didn't feel like I normally feel here.  We changed a couple things.  Like in the beginning of the week, we'd kind of been trialing a little bit. Since COVID, we didn't really get any testing, really."


 

For Stockon, his raceday morning began at 6:30am watching his son, Parker, compete on a dirt bike in the 50 JR class of the Southern Indiana Grand Prix Series at Red Fox T-N-T in Tennyson, Ind.  Young Parker finished second in the race that had a gate drop of 8:20am.  Around 13 hours later that same day, Chase was back in his starring role behind the wheel, capturing his long-coveted Indiana Sprint Week driving championship in the KO Motorsports/Hutson John Deere - Ravens Manufacturing - AMSOIL/Velocity/Fisher Chevy.


 

"This is pretty sweet," Stockon admitted.  "It probably won't sink in until tomorrow or Wednesday or something this week, but we're going to bask in the glory of it right now."

After nearly capturing victory at the Terre Haute Action Track in the previous Indiana Sprint Week race which ran to completion, Stockon and the KO Motorsports team, which he joined on a full-time basis just one month prior, bounced back with authority.


 

It was a week Chase classified as a trying week with the missed opportunities, both on-track and due to mother nature, despite being the only driver in the series to finish within the top-five in all five ISW feature races in 2020, a consistent run that made him the third-straight driver to win ISW without the aid of a feature win, and the 12th overall in the 33-year history of the series along with Randy Kinser (1988), Gary Trammell (1990). Bob Kinser (1991), Tony Elliott (1999), Levi Jones (2004-08-12), Robert Ballou (2015), Brady Bacon (2016), Chris Windom (2018) and C.J. Leary (2019).


 

"It's been a trying week for us," Stockon said.  "This is a lot of redemption for us.  We were really good here tonight, just trying to be careful and trying to win a race at the same time.  It's all big picture for us.  I got to thank my guys and everybody on the side of this car that made it all possible.  I think it just shows how strong we are as a team.  Nobody got down and everybody kept their chin up.  We just powered forward."

GRANT'S LAST STAND

NETS FINAL LAP VICTORY AT TERRE HAUTE


 
By: Richie Murray - USAC Media

 
Terre Haute, Indiana (July 29, 2020)........."I just ran every lap harder than the last one.  I figured if I didn't get it done on the last one, I must need to run this thing harder.  Finally, I worked my courage up to run it hard enough to finally get by him."

 
Those are the words of Justin Grant who capitalized on a pair of late-race cautions and an "overtime" period to score a last lap USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car victory Wednesday night during the Dorsett Automotive Don Smith Classic at the Terre Haute Action Track in round four of NOS Energy Drink Indiana Sprint Week.

 
A succession of unfortunate timing led to race leader Chase Stockon's ultimate misfortune in the final two green-white-checkered restarts.  The last of which, Grant drove around Stockon in the second turn and raced to victory for the fourth time with the series this season, taking over the ISW point lead by a mere six points over Stockon and 10 points over 3rd place Brady Bacon with three races remaining over the next three  nights.

 
"We want to win this championship badly," Grant exclaimed.  "I want to win races, I like trophies, I like wheelies, bicycles, running above the cushion and I'm here to make money.  This is how I feed my kids.  This is how I pay my bills.  This is my life.  Fortunately, points and dollars earned correlate pretty closely.  Tonight, the safe move would've been to run second.  But, god, I love winning races.  So, we said, 'screw it,' let's win this race.  We were wide open above the curb getting in, wheelieing, bicycling, and getting trophies."

 
Taking a line a car width or two above Stockon just before the first and second yellow near the end of the main event, Grant wasn't able to get the oomph off turn two to make the move stick.  The third time proved to be a charm, however, as the Ione, Calif. lived up to the refrain, "if at first you don't succeed, try, try again" for his 20th career USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car win.

 
Stockon, the 2016 Don Smith Classic winner, led the opening lap of the 30-lap event before Bacon, himself a two-time Terre Haute winner with the series, charged to the point on the bottom of turn four on the second lap.  Grant, starting 4th meanwhile, put his bid in for 2nd, riding the bottom rail between turns three and four to the runner-up spot on the seventh lap.

 
Bacon had upped his lead to 2.5 seconds when Max Adams suffered a flat right rear tire to bring out the yellow with 12 laps remaining.  With the field bunched up for the restart, Bacon's lead wasn't long for the world as he slid through the middle of turn one, henceforth opening the door on the bottom for Grant to drive by while Stockon followed suit on the bottom at the exit of turn two to glide into second.

 
Grant's run up front was short lived as, just one lap later, Stockon stuck the bottom of turns one and two to snag the lead from Grant.  Stockon extended his lead to three-quarters of a second, but that lead tediously dwindled when Grant closed to within a car length trying to make an outside pass in turn two, to no avail.  At that point, victory was seemingly in the bag for Stockon as he rounded turn three only to find a yellow flag and the 20th place car of Nate McMillin spun backwards, facing his direction and in motion at the exit of turn four.

 
By rule, caution periods that occur on the white flag lap will result in a two-lap, green-white-checkered finish.  Subsequently, second running Grant and now third-place Windom had an additional opportunity, much to the chagrin of Stockon.  The restart was nearly identical to the final lap before the McMillin caution with Grant trying with all his might to get around Stockon who was perfect on the bottom line.

 
Just as Stockon began to exhale and a feature win seemed imminent, lightning struck again for the Fort Branch, Ind. native as he swept through turn three only to see the yellow once again for the spun car of Dennis Gile in turn two, running 15th at the time.

 
As the leader, Stockon had to be perfect, especially with the sense of not being able to  see the angles of attack with which his closest competitors were utilizing behind him.  In essence, Grant, in second, only had to be perfect just this once.  After one lap of trailing Stockon around the half-mile on what wound up as being lap 31, Grant got a big run off turn four headed to the white flag.

 
Being stuck high in the crumbs on the exit of two during his last attempts there, Grant had an alternate plan.

 
"I entered below the lip and didn't want to turn over on the lip getting in," Grant recalled.  "The only way this thing's going to work is if I run right over that lip wide open, get enough bite on entry and drive across the slick and get back to the good stuff off two.  And, by god, it worked!"



 
With Grant tucked right behind Stockon at the start/finish line, the two tagged bumpers.  Stockon, now possibly carrying too much speed into turn one, slid straight up to the middle, losing momentum and opening up the expressway at the top for Grant and the bottom for Windom who both raced on by for first and second, respectively.

 
Grant executed the last half-lap of the distance as the frontrunner, going on to win his second career series race at Terre Haute by a margin of two car lengths, or 0.257 of a second, over Windom, Stockon, C.J. Leary and Shane Cottle.

 
On this particular evening, the late cautions which caused misfortune and much consternation for some, happened to play into the hands of Grant who made his third and final effort the payoff pitch.

 
"Tonight, it played in our favor, but sometime this season, it won't," Grant admitted.  "It's just one of those things.  Tonight, it didn't play in Chase's favor, but at some point this year, it will.  Like it or not, it's part of the game and you've got to play the game how it's played.  We know what the gig is coming in and that's part of the gig.  It doesn't matter if it's not your favorite part, it's part of it.  And you've got to do what you've got to do."

 
In other notes, during Fatheadz Eyewear Qualifying, C.J. Leary earned his 27th career USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car fast qualifying time, equaling him with both Dave Steele and Chase Stockon for 12th on the all-time list.

LANCO EASTERN MIDGET WEEK PREVIEW


 

By: Richie Murray - USAC Media


 

Newmanstown, Pennsylvania (August 3, 2020).........During the USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget debut at Lanco's Clyde Martin Memorial Speedway back in 2016, Tanner Thorson needed all the heroics he could muster to pull off a last-lap, last corner pass to take the victory.


 

In 2017, the Minden, Nev. native repeated the feat as a Lanco victor once again at the 1/8-mile bullring in Newmanstown, Pa.  This time, however, it was a relative comfort cruise, comparatively speaking, as Thorson led all 40 laps from start to finish.


 

Thorson led the first ever USAC Midget laps at Lanco in 2016, leading the first three, then the final one en route to victory.  The 2016 USAC National Midget champion led flag to flag in 2017 and remains undefeated on Lanco soil in his career.


 

Forty lappers are somewhat a rarity these days compared to the more-standard 30-lap events that make up the majority of the schedule.  Forty laps can add extra variables and intangibles throughout the duration, especially at the extreme bullring that is Lanco, where the series visits this Saturday night, August 8, for the Eastern Midget Week finale.

It's an elbows up, always on the toes affair at Lanco that makes it entertaining for those of us who are watching and a thrill a second pursuit for competitors.


 

Saturday at Lanco will mark the fourth 40-lap feature on the schedule this season.  While Thorson has won three 40-lappers in his USAC career, no driver owns more wins this season in that distance with the series (2) than reigning series champion Tyler Courtney (Indianapolis, Ind.).


 

Among drivers expected in the Lanco field, none have more than Courtney at five, including victories at Port City Raceway in Tulsa, Okla. and Jefferson County Speedway in Fairbury, Neb.  Rich Vogler leads all driver with a seemingly unreachable record of 33 career 40-lap USAC National Midget feature triumphs.


 

Courtney (Indianapolis, Ind.) has finished on the "podium" twice at Lanco, taking 3rd in 2017 and 2nd in 2019.  In 2018, Courtney flipped early while running 6th, then returned to the field and drove to a 10th place result.


 

Justin Grant (Ione, Calif.) has joined Petry Motorsports on their tour of the east in a third car alongside Tanner Carrick and Emerson Axsom.  Grant's only two previous Lanco appearances have been a little rocky.  He won his heat in 2017, then flipped on the opening lap of the feature.  His second attempt in 2018 also saw him flip with 15 laps remaining.  The current USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car point leader got back up on the horse and battled back to a 7th place finish.  Grant owns two career 40-lap USAC Midget victories, adding one this past May in Port City.


 

Carrick (Lincoln, Calif.) captured his lone career USAC National Midget feature win a 40-lapper during the 2019 season at Sweet Springs, Mo.  The 2019 USAC National Most Improved driver has finished inside the top-ten in all three of his Lanco starts, 8th (2017), 6th (2018) and 9th (2019).  Rookie Axsom (Franklin, Ind.), has onoly made five career series starts, but has finished inside the top-8 in each of the last four.


 

Kevin Thomas Jr. (Cullman, Ala.), who'll reside in Heffner Racing's Midget throughout Eastern Midget Week, led the first 16 laps in his 2018 debut before being involved in a turn three crash while leading that knocked him out of the race.  He recovered nicely in 2019 with a solid 4th place result.


 

Chad Boat has assumed the owner's role for the 2020 season, but as a driver, he's made all four Lanco starts this year.  He won his heat and finished 6th in 2016, was 6th again in 2017, 11th in 2018 and 10th in 2019 after leading the first eight circuits.  His driver lineup for Lanco includes series point leader, Chris Windom (Canton, Ill.), a heat race victor and 6th place finisher in 2019.


 

Andrew Layser, a product of Collegeville, Pa., has been solid in each of his past two starts after taking 17th in 2013 as an ARDC regular.  The 2019 USAC National Midget Rookie of the Year charged from 19th to 8th in 2019, then elevated to a 7th place finish in 2019.  Along with Windom and Layser in the Tucker-Boat Motorsports stable for the week is Dillon Welch, the 2009 USAC Kenyon Midget champ and former "voice of USAC."


 

The No. 39BC from Clauson-Marshall Racing won the event in 2018 with driver Zeb Wise.  Cole Bodine (Rossville, Ind.) has the reigns of the ride this year as he makes his first Eastern Midget Week appearance.  Ethan Mitchell returns for a second Lanco adventure after a 14th place finish in 2018.  Kyle Cummins, a recent winner of the NOS Energy Drink Indiana Sprint Week finale at Tri-State Speedway on August 2, will venture east in Jack Yeley's midget for the final two nights of Eastern Midget Week at Path Valley and Lanco.


 

Royersford, Pennsylvania's Steve Buckwalter took 11th in his singular Lanco appearance in 2016.  Adam Pierson (East Corinth, Vt.) finished 16th at Lanco in 2017, but it was there that he also recorded his best career USAC National Midget feature finish with a 4th in 2018.  Kevin Woody Jr. notched a 17th place finish at Lanco in 2018 while Steve Drevicki took 14th in 2019.


 

Keith Kunz/Curb-Agajanian Motorsports have won three of the four Lanco USAC Midget races, in 2016-17 with Thorson and again in 2019 with Logan Seavey.  The team will be bringing its talented group who'll all be making their Lanco USAC debuts - Penngrove, California's Buddy Kofoid (3rd in points), Bixby, Oklahoma's Cannon McIntosh (5th in points) and Locust Grove, Oklahoma's Daison Pursley (7th in points.).


 

Pit gates open for trailer parking at 1pm ET, Pit admission sales begin at 3:30pm, gates open for advance ticket holders at 3:30pm, gates open for general admission ticket holders at 4:30pm, Midget drivers' meeting at 5:30pm, with midgets on track at 6pm followed by qualifying and racing.  Wingless Micros are also on the event card.

SUNDAY'S BILL HOLLAND CLASSIC MARKS

USAC SILVER CROWN DEBUT AT SELINSGROVE


 

By: Richie Murray - USAC Media


 

Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania (August 4, 2020).........Each of the USAC Silver Crown division's previous 14 visits to the state of Pennsylvania have produced 14 different race winners.   Could another new winner emerge in the Silver Crown debut at the half-mile dirt oval of Pennsylvania's Selinsgrove Speedway this Sunday night, August 9, in the Bill Holland Classic?


 

The three most recent Pennsylvania-bred Silver Crown races have been captured by a trio of USAC National champions, all at Williams Grove Speedway: Chris Windom (2016), Kody Swanson (2017) and Brady Bacon (2019).   They're all entered for Sunday's 74-lap event that honors Holland, the man who won the inaugural race at Selinsgrove on July 20, 1946 - 74 years ago.


 

A 2005 National Sprint Car Hall of Fame inductee, Holland earned the 1941 AAA East championship and took second in the National AAA title race in 1947.   Retiring in 1959, Holland scored 53 sprint car triumphs during his career under AAA sanction as well as in  unsanctioned events.


 

His champ car career spanned nearly two decades between 1936 and 1954 and included more than 150 "podium" finishes, including, perhaps, one of the greatest strings of Indianapolis 500 results ever put together during a four-year span between 1947 and 1950 in Lou Moore's Blue Crown Spark Plug Special: a 2nd in 1947, 2nd in 1948, 1st in 1949 and 2nd in 1950.


 

Pennsylvania itself is steeped in history with the USAC Silver Crown division, serving as the host of the first-ever race in series history at Nazareth National Speedway in 1971, won by Jim McElreath.   That same 1971 season also marked the first, and most recent, visit by USAC at Selinsgrove, when local standout Mitch Smith raced to victory in a National Sprint Car event.


 

Forty-nine years later, USAC returns to Selinsgrove, with a stacked field of today's racing heroes, including Silver Crown's only five-time champion in 2014-15-17-18-19, and 29-time race winner and 29-time pole winner, Kody Swanson of Kingsburg, Calif., plus additional National Champions, 8-time Silver Crown winner and 2016 Silver Crown / 2017 AMSOIL National Sprint champ Chris Windom (Canton, Ill.), plus C.J. Leary (Greenfield, Ind.), twice a Silver Crown race winner and the reigning USAC AMSOIL National Sprint titlist.


 

Brady Bacon (Broken Arrow, Okla.), twice a USAC National Sprint champ in 2014 and 2016, and the most recent Pennsylvania Silver Crown winner at Williams Grove in 2019, is entered.   Logan Seavey (Sutter, Calif.), the 2018 USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget champ is entered for his USAC Silver Crown debut, part of a talented group of wheelmen planning to make their first series start this Sunday along with 7-time USAC National Sprint feature winner Kyle Cummins (Princeton, Ind.), 2017 USAC West Coast Sprint champ Jake Swanson (Anaheim, Calif.).


 

Joey Biasi (Mary D, Pa.) and Carmen Perigo (Stoystown, Pa.) are frequent front runners with USAC's Rapid Tire East Coast Sprint Car series, both of whom will be making their first appearance in a Silver Crown car this Sunday.   They're also among the four Pennsylvanians on the entry list alongside series veterans Mike Haggenbottom (Levittown, Pa.) and Dave Berkheimer (Mechanicsburg, Pa.).


 

Experienced Silver Crown race winners make up a third of the field.   Along with the previously mentioned USAC National champions of Bacon, Windom, Swanson and Leary, Silver Crown winners in the Selinsgrove lineup include David Byrne (Shullsburg, Wisc.), Shane Cockrum (Benton, Ill.), Shane Cottle (Kansas, Ill.) and current USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car point leader Justin Grant (Ione, Calif.).


 

Six-time All Star Circuit of Champions titlist Chad Kemenah (Alvada, Ohio) is back for his second Silver Crown season on the dirt after making his first four series starts in 2019.   Twenty-seven-time USAC National Sprint Car winner Kevin Thomas Jr. (Cullman, Ala.) has finished 2nd five times in his Silver Crown career and is seeking to bump that up one more spot for his first victory with the series.


 

Past Silver Crown Rookies of the Year, New Castle, Indiana's Kyle Robbins (2018) and Pleasant Hill, Ohio's Matt Westfall (2002) are set for their Selinsgrove debuts while series veterans Austin Nemire (Sylvania, Ohio), Travis Welpott (Pendleton, Ind.), Matt Goodnight (Winchester, Ind.), Ronnie Wuerdeman (Cincinnati, Ohio) and Jake Simmons (Terre Haute, Ind.) are geared for another season of Silver Crown competition.


 

Sunday marks a USAC doubleheader with USAC's Rapid Tire East Coast Sprint Car series also on the card.   Pit gates open at 3pm ET, grandstands at 4:30pm (4pm for advance ticket holders), drivers meeting at 5:30pm and practice at 6pm, followed by qualifying and racing.


 

Adult general admission tickets for Sunday at Selinsgrove are $25 with students ages 12 - 17 priced at $15. Kids ages 11 and under are free.   Pit passes are $40.   Reserved seats for all ages are an additional $2 and can be purchased by emailing  promoter@selinsgrovespeedway.com  with contact information.


 

The event will air live on FloRacing at  https://bit.ly/2Zs7zFP.

BRIDGEPORT EASTERN MIDGET WEEK PREVIEW


 
By: Richie Murray - USAC Media

 
Bridgeport, New Jersey (July 31, 2020).........It's been 31 years since the USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midgets have visited the Garden State of New Jersey, but this coming Thursday, August 6, the three-plus decade hiatus comes to a close as the highly-competitive series makes its debut at Bridgeport Speedway for round three of Eastern Midget Week, the first time the mini-series has ventured outside of the state of Pennsylvania in its six year history.

 
USAC series have competed at the track in recent years with Bridgeport hosting the Eastern Storm tour for the AMSOIL National Sprint Cars in both 2018-19 as well as the Rapid Tire East Coast Sprint Cars in that same time frame.

 
For those individuals who've competed with the national series at Bridgeport over the last couple of seasons, they will be greeted by a newly reconverted 4/10-mile dirt oval.  Those past events have been held on the former 3/8-mile dirt oval which was located inside of the now-defunct 5/8-mile dirt track.

 
With that said, all past experience at the track is out the window with the new layout.  However, a handful of name drivers do have experience, and their share of successes, at Bridgeport in its previous iteration.

 
Kevin Thomas Jr., who'll be competing for Heffner Racing throughout Eastern Midget Week, was the fastest qualifier and the winner of the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car debut at Bridgeport in 2018.  The Cullman, Ala. driver followed up with a runner-up finish during his last series visit in 2019.

 
USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget point leader Chris Windom led 11 laps and finished 2nd after his involvement in a memorable back-and-forth tussle throughout the 30-lap distance between he, Thomas and Tyler Courtney, all of whom will be competing throughout the entirety of Eastern Midget Week.  Windom, the 2016 USAC Silver Crown and 2017 AMSOIL National Sprint Car champion from Canton, Ill. collected an 8th place finish at Bridgeport in 2019.

 
Reigning USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget champion Tyler Courtney finished 3rd in his USAC Sprint Car visit to Bridgeport in 2018.  The Indianapolis, ind. native captured a heat race win in 2019 before moving from the 10th starting position to a 6th place feature finish.

 
Justin Grant has been tabbed as the driver of the Petry Motorsports No. 5 throughout Eastern Midget Week.  The current USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car point leader from Ione, Calif. finished 8th in 2018 before upping his performance to a 3rd in 2019 in USAC Sprint competition at Bridgeport.

 
Thomas Meseraull (San Jose, Calif.) is always a thrill show at any venue he participates.  Twice a non-point special event winner with the USAC Midgets, Meseraull made a charge during his debut at Bridgeport in a sprint car during Eastern Storm 2018, cutting through the field to 9th after starting 18th on the grid.

 
Steven Drevicki (Reading, Pa.) just this past week reigned victorious in a USAC SpeedSTR feature at Bridgeport by about a foot on a last lap, last corner pass for the win.  The two-time USAC Rapid Tire East Coast Sprint Car champion also owns two career top-five finishes with the series there, a 2nd in 2018 and a 5th in 2019.  During Eastern Storm at Bridgeport in 2019, Drevicki collected a 12th place result.

 
Several drivers within the top-ten of the current USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget point standings are each making their debuts at Bridgeport, including top Rookie, Penngrove, California's Buddy Kofoid (3rd in the standings); along with 2016 series champ and two-time Eastern Midget Week feature winner Tanner Thorson of Minden, Nev. (4th); 2019 Shamrock Classic victor, Cannon McIntosh of Bixby, Okla. (5th); 2019 USAC National Most Improved Driver Tanner Carrick of Lincoln, Calif. (6th), Rookie Daison Pursley of Locust Grove, Okla. (7th), Rossville, Indiana's Cole Bodine (8th) and Pennsylvania's own Andrew Layser (9th), the 2019 series Rookie of the Year from Collegeville.

 
USAC's National Midget history dates back more than six decades ago when 1957-58 Indoor Midget champion Chuck Rodee scored a 100-mile victory at the Fairgrounds in Trenton.  The longest midget races in USAC history took place in the state of New Jersey in 1959 and 1960 when Jiggs Peters and Bobby Marshman/Jimmy Davies each won 250-mile races at Trenton, respectively.  The Marshman/Davies combo win was the only time in series history that two drivers were credited with a shared victory.

 
Seven of New Jersey's previous 14 USAC National Midget events have been held at Trenton, with two at Wall Stadium in 1963, the first night of which was won by Parnelli Jones, who was fresh off his Indianapolis 500 win.  Old Bridge Speedway hosted the series in 1964 while Flemington Speedway was the venue for the three most recent in 1971-86-89, the final two of which were won by John Heydenreich, who remains active as a driver to this day.

 
The Foley Cat Modifieds will also be on the event card.   Pits open for Bridgeport at 3pm Eastern with front gates opening at 4:30pm and hot laps at 6pm. 

 
General admission tickets are $28 for adults, $15 for kids age 10-15 and free for kids age 9 & under. Pit passes are $35 apiece. Tickets can be purchased at the gate or on www.bridgeportspeedway.thundertix.com .

 
Thursday's Grandview event will be aired live on FloRacing at  https://bit.ly/2Zs7zFP .

 

 
USAC NATIONAL MIDGET WINS IN NEW JERSEY:

PATH VALLEY EASTERN MIDGET WEEK PREVIEW

 
By: Richie Murray - USAC Media

 
Spring Run, Pennsylvania (August 1, 2020).........Chad Boat may have been Arizonian-born and bred, but his prowess of Eastern Midget Week of late has made the Keystone State sort of another adopted state when the USAC NOS Energy Drink Midget National Championship arrives in the late summer as they will once again on Friday night, August 7, during the five race, five track, five day stretch for the series at Path Valley Speedway Park in Spring Run, Pennsylvania.

 
Boat, who now actually resides in Mooresville, North Carolina, endured a lap-after-lap attack from Zeb Wise for much of the middle of the 2019 30-lapper at Path Valley to win his first of the year.  In fact, it was his first victory with the series since the Eastern Midget Week finale almost exactly one year earlier.

 
The victory was Boat's second-straight at the quarter-mile dirt oval of Path Valley dating back to his last visit in 2017.  His four career Eastern Midget Week triumphs elevated him past Mel Kenyon in 2019 to make him the winningest USAC National Midget driver of all-time in the state of Pennsylvania.

 
The victory was extra special due to the fact that Chad equaled his father on the all-time USAC NOS Energy Drink feature win list with nine.  Dad, Billy Boat, is a three-time "Turkey Night Grand Prix" Midget winner in 1995-96-97 and won the pole for the Indianapolis 500 in 1998.

 
Shortly following that win, Chad stepped aside from the driver's role and into the role of crew chief and team owner for Tucker-Boat Motorsports, which has quickly developed into a force on the USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget scene in 2020.

 
Two of his drivers reside inside the top-10 of the series standings.  Chris Windom leads and Andrew Layser is 9th, while Dillon Welch will occupy a third car for the team throughout all five races of Eastern Midget Week, August 4-8.  Each time TBM has competed at Path Valley in 2017 and 2019, the team has won, giving them an inside edge at the racy bullring.

 
Current series point leader Windom (Canton, Ill.) finished 2nd behind Boat during his Path Valley debut in 2019.  Collegeville, Pa.'s Andrew Layser, the 2019 USAC National Midget Rookie of the Year, made his first series start at Path Valley in 2017 back when he was a regular with ARDC.  There, he finished 17th, but his most recent result of 10th in 2019 serves as his best thus far.  Welch (Carmel, Ind.), the 2009 USAC Kenyon Midget champion, holds USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget one-lap track records  at both Kokomo (Ind.) Speedway and California's Placerville Speedway.

 
Keith Kunz/Curb-Agajanian Motorsports captured its first Path Valley USAC Midget victory in 2015 with driver Rico Abreu.  This year, KKM, 10-time USAC National Midget championship team with the second-most victories in series history (110), has brought a highly talented Rookie crop who are all making their Eastern Midget Week debuts, but are also seeking to earn the team its first USAC victory of 2020.

 
Top Rookie, Penngrove, California's Buddy Kofoid (3rd in the standings), who recently swept to a pair of wing sprint car victories last weekend in Ohio at Attica and Fremont, is joined by 2019 Shamrock Classic victor, Cannon McIntosh of Bixby, Okla. (5th) and Rookie Daison Pursley of Locust Grove, Okla. (7th), all of whom are seeking to repeat Abreu and Kunz's Path Valley mastery back in 2015.

 
Tanner Thorson, leader among all series regulars in feature wins with the division in 2020, was the fastest qualifier at Path Valley in 2015.  That same year, he led the first 13 laps of the feature before being passed by Abreu on a mid-race restart.  While battling for 2nd, Thorson and Kevin Thomas Jr. made contact, sending Thorson spinning to a stop, and ultimately finishing 9th.

 
In 2017, Thorson was in position to win again at Path Valley, pacing the field for 18 laps and was leading when contact between he and Tyler Courtney in turn four coming to the checkered flag sent Thorson spinning out of the lead.  An ultimately better result came about for Thorson in 2019 with a 4th place finish.

 
Defending series champion Tyler Courtney, meanwhile, has made two previous appearances at Path Valley.  In 2017, the 2019 USAC Super License titlist won his heat race and finished 2nd in 2017.  Two years later, in 2019, he once again finished on the "podium," taking a 3rd place result.  Courtney's Clauson-Marshall Racing teammate Cole Bodine (Rossville, Ind.) will make his Path Valley debut.  His car, the CMR #39BC, owns the series' one-lap track record at Path Valley, a 11.057 set by Zeb Wise in 2019.

 
Kevin Thomas Jr. (Cullman, Ala.) has made two USAC Midget starts at Path Valley, winning his heat race and finishing 3rd in 2015, then took 14th in the latest round there in 2019.  Thomas, meanwhile, recently vacated the Petry Motorsports No. 5, which he had driven on the USAC Midget trail since late 2017.  Making his USAC debut in the ride for Eastern Midget Week is Justin Grant, the current USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car point leader and May's T-Town Midget Showdown winner at Port City Raceway in Tulsa, Okla.

 
Grant (Ione, Calif.) has made one previous Path Valley appearance, winning his heat, then finishing 15th in the 2017 feature.  The result was not indicative of his performance, however, as he was running 4th on the final lap when he flipped while getting caught up in the aforementioned late-race skirmish between Thorson and Courtney.

 
Along with Grant on the three-car Petry fleet for Eastern Midget Week is 2019 USAC National Most Improved Driver Tanner Carrick (Lincoln, Calif.), twice a top-ten finisher with the series at Path Valley.  The 2017 USAC National Midget Rookie of the Year finished a personal best 7th in 2017, then won his heat and finished 8th in 2019.  Carrick is joined by impressive Rookie Emerson Axsom (Franklin, Ind.), who has made five career series starts, but has finished inside the top-8 in each of the last four.

 
The mini-series in the east always provides a local flair with the Eastern contingent.  Two-time USAC Rapid Tire East Coast Sprint Car champ (2018-19) and ARDC Midget titlist (2014-15) Steven Drevicki (Reading, Pa.) will compete for the entirety of Eastern Midget week with the Randy Heckman-owned team.  Drevicki won the semi-feature and finished 10th in the A-Main at Path Valley in 2015.  In 2019, he was 16th.

 
Steve Buckwalter (Royersford, Pa.) remains the most recent Pennsylvanian to win a USAC National Midget feature, which he did in 2010 at Gas City (Ind.) I-69 Speedway.  He was 20th in 2015.  Buckwalter's teammate, Kevin Woody Jr. (Victor, N.Y.) took 17th in 2019.  Adam Pierson (East Corinth, Vt.), a three-time USAC DMA Midget champion where he's won 33 career races, is entered for his first Eastern Midget Week run in a couple of years.

ACTION TRACK USA EASTERN MIDGET WEEK PREVIEW


By: Richie Murray - USAC Media


 

Kutztown, Pennsylvania (July 30, 2020).........A new first-time winner will emerge at Action Track USA on Wednesday, August 5, in the second race of 2020 Eastern Midget Week when the USAC NOS Energy Drink Midget National Championship invades the quarter-mile dirt oval in Kutztown where the competition truly lived up to the track's moniker in the series' 2019 debut.


 

Among them are series point leader Chris Windom, defending champion Tyler Courtney, 2016 champion Tanner Thorson and 2013 titlist Christopher Bell, along with young guns like Buddy Kofoid and Cannon McIntosh who are making their first trip with the series to the east.


 

Last year, young Zeb Wise looked the part of a savvy, seasoned veteran having to hold off a relentless attack from Kyle Larson lap-after-lap-after-lap, down to the final corner.  An inch or two was all Wise needed to fend off the hard-charging Larson on the final corner, bouncing off the outside concrete to break free on the outside and beat Larson to the line by a half-car length at the finish line, 0.078 of a second to be exact.


 

In his Action Track USA debut, Courtney (Indianapolis, Ind.), twice a USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car winner in Pennsylvania, established the track record in qualifying at 11.313, then proceeded to win his heat race.  He'd finish 5th in the feature after starting 6th.


 

Series point leader Windom (Canton, Ill.), a six-time Eastern Storm winner, was the hard charger during the 2019 main event at Action Track USA, driving from his 12th starting position to a 3rd place result behind Wise and Larson.  He is a one-time USAC Midget winner in the Keystone State in the 2019 opener at Grandview.


 

Thorson (Minden, Nev.) is the lone multi-time USAC National Midget winner in Pennsylvania among the contingent expected to compete at Action Track USA.  He finished 4th last year at Action Track but owns a pair of victories at Lanco in Newmanstown, Pa. in both 2016 and 17.


 

Local standout Andrew Layser made his debut in a full-size midget at Action Track USA in 2019, along with everyone else.  The 2019 USAC National Midget Rookie of the Year captured a heat race win and was a big mover in the 30-lap feature, charging from the 14th starting position to finish 7th.


 

Reading, Pennsylvania's Steven Drevicki finished 15th in his first USAC National Midget feature run at Action Track in 2019.  The two-time USAC Rapid Tire East Coast Sprint Car champion in 2018-19, Drevicki won what was dubbed the "race of the season" for the All Pro SpeedSTRs at Action Track on July 28.  The two-time ARDC Midget champion in both 2014 and 2015 recently captured a feature victory in a non-sanctioned midget feature at Abbottstown, Pa.'s Lincoln Speedway.


 

Layser, along with Windom, will team up NASCAR Cup regular Christopher Bell (Norman, Okla.) and Dillon Welch (Carmel, Ind.) on the Tucker/Boat Motorsports team for Action Track USA.  The team, with Chad Boat behind the wheel at the time, has won USAC National Midget feature events in Pennsylvania three years in a row.  Boat himself led five laps last year at Action Track.


 

A one-time USAC National Sprint winner in the state of Pennsylvania, Kevin Thomas Jr. (Cullman, Ala.) who will compete for the Heffner Racing team throughout Eastern Midget Week, took 9th last year at Action Track.  Lincoln, California's Tanner Carrick (11th) and Mooresville, North Carolina's Ethan Mitchell (22nd) will return for their second Action Track appearances.


 

Keith Kunz/Curb-Agajanian Motorsports standouts making their debuts at Action Track USA include top series Rookie, Penngrove, California's Buddy Kofoid (3rd in points), Bixby, Oklahoma's Cannon McIntosh (5th in points) and Locust Grove, Oklahoma's Daison Pursley (7th in points.).

GRANDVIEW EASTERN MIDGET WEEK PREVIEW


 

By: Richie Murray - USAC Media


 

Bechtelsville, Pennsylvania (July 29, 2020).........Four past USAC National champions - Christopher Bell, Tanner Thorson, Chris Windom and Tyler Courtney, among several other talented competitors, are expected to compete at Grandview Speedway on Tuesday, August 4, when the USAC NOS Energy Drink Midget National Championship makes the trip to 1/3-mile dirt oval in Bechtelsville, Pa. for the kickoff to the five-race in five-night series known as Eastern Midget Week.


 

It took 102 starts for Chris Windom to reach USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget victory lane for the first time in his career in June of 2019.  It took just six more for the Canton, Illinois native to get there for the second time in the 2019 Eastern Midget Week opener at Grandview Speedway.


 

Since that first series win over a year ago, the current USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget point leader has won four more times in 34 starts, including three in 2020 in Ocala, Fla., Putnamville, Ind. and Fairbury, Neb.


 

In last year's Grandview tilt, Windom fought Tyler Courtney for the win on the final lap, losing the lead via a Courtney slider in turn one, then outdueled him into turn three to retake the position before sealing the deal to win in the series' first visit to the 1/3-mile dirt oval in three decades.


 

Courtney, last year's Grandview runner-up finisher, heat race winner and reigning USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget driving champion, is second in the series standings behind Windom following a recent surge in the Great Plains tour in mid-July following a recent victory at Jefferson County Speedway in Fairbury, Neb.  The 2018 USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car champ will be teamed with Cole Bodine (Rossville, Ind.) for Clauson-Marshall Racing.


 

Minden, Nevada's Tanner Thorson, the 2016 series champion, was last year's Grandview hard charger, starting 15th and finishing 4th and was also a heat race winner.  He leads all drivers in the series with 138 laps led throughout the 2020 season.  He leads all series regulars with four feature scores in Ocala, Du Quoin, Ill., Kokomo, Ind. and Red Dirt Raceway in Meeker, Okla.


 

Tanner Carrick, the 2019 USAC National Most Improved Driver from Lincoln, Calif., moved up to a 3rd place finish at Grandview after starting 7th on the grid.  The 2017 USAC National Midget Rookie of the year and one-time feature winner is 6th in the standings coming in.


 

Kevin Thomas Jr. will be wheeling a midget for Pennsylvania's Heffner Racing throughout Eastern Midget Week.  Thomas (Cullman, Ala.) holds the one-lap USAC National Sprint Car track record at Grandview, set in 2012.  He finished 3rd in last year's midget feature event at Grandview.


 

No Pennsylvania driver has won a USAC National Midget feature since Royersford's  Steve Buckwalter in 2010.  Buckwalter, the 2010 ARDC Midget champ, won that year during the Indiana Midget Week round at Gas City and will join the Grandview field on Tuesday after finishing 18th there a year ago.


 

Fellow Pennsylvanian Andrew Layser (Collegeville, Pa.) finished 13th at Grandview in 2019 during his USAC National Midget Rookie of the Year campaign and is 9th in the standings this year as a Tucker-Boat Motorsports teammate to 2019 Grandview winner Windom.


 

Reading, Pennsylvania's Steven Drevicki is a perennial winner on the USAC Rapid Tire East Coast Sprint Car circuit, winning the last two year's titles, and has already tallied two victories this season and is the leader once again in the standings.  He is equally successful in the Midgets as well, capturing ARDC championships in both 2014 and 2015.  The recent non-sanctioned midget winner at Abbottstown, Pa.'s Lincoln Speedway, finished 17th with the USAC Midgets at Grandview in 2019.


 

Victor, New York's Kevin Woody Jr., an Army combat veteran and government bodyguard, has been a regular of Eastern Midget Week over the past couple of summers and will be behind the wheel for the event once again this year beginning at Grandview as a teammate to Steve Buckwalter.  Woody finished 19th in 2019 at Grandview.


 

Among the competition expected are 2013 USAC National Midget champion and NASCAR Cup Series regular Christopher Bell (Norman, Okla.), who'll be teamed up with Windom, Layser and Kokomo/Placerville USAC Midget track record holder, Dillon Welch (Carmel, Ind.).


 

Three drivers from the Keith Kunz/Curb-Agajanian Motorsports stable are also expected to make their Grandview Midget debuts, including top series Rookie, Penngrove, California's Buddy Kofoid (3rd in points), Bixby, Oklahoma's Cannon McIntosh (5th in points) and Locust Grove, Oklahoma's Daison Pursley (7th in points).


 

2017 Lincoln Speedway Eastern Storm winner Thomas Meseraull (San Jose, Calif.) has  victory experience in the state of Pennsylvania with the USAC Sprint Cars and will be paired with 2018 Gas City, Ind. sprint car track champion and RMS teammate Clinton Boyles (Greenwood, Mo.) for Grandview.


 

Plus, mix in 2019 HARF Driver of the Year, Kyle Cummins (Princeton, Ind.), who is a major star in Sprint Cars in the state of Indiana and a 5th place USAC Midget finisher in his most recent series start in June at Kokomo.  


 

Adam Pierson (East Corinth, Vt.) and Jeff Champagne (Westfield, Mass.) have each been standouts in USAC's DMA Midget division which finds its home at Bear Ridge Speedway in Bradford, Vt.  Pierson is a 33-time winner with the series (most all-time) and a three-time champ in 2014-15-16 who tied Billy Boat for the longest win streak in USAC racing history at 11 straight in 2016.  Champagne, meanwhile, is four-time winner  with the series.


 

Both coasts are well represented with Ethan Mitchell (Mooresville, N.C.) riding up the east coast to take on Eastern Midget Week while Chase Johnson (Penngrove, Calif.) has made the trip out for Indiana Sprint Week and will continue moving eastward for Grandview.  Robert Dalby (Anaheim, Calif.) has relocated to Indiana for the 2020 season and is set to face his first Eastern Midget Week appearance.


 

USAC National Midget racing has occurred only three times at Grandview.  The debut in 1988 was won by Rich Vogler while the follow up in 1989 was captured by Russ Gamester.  Both drivers also won the USAC National Midget championship in those same years.  Chris Windom won the series' return to Grandview in 2019.


 

Pits open at 2:30pm ET on raceday, Tuesday, August 4, at Grandview.  The front gates open at 5pm with the drivers meeting at 6pm and midgets on track at 6:20pm.


 

Adult admission tickets are $28, children age 6 to 11 are $10 and children age 5 and  under will be admitted free.  The pit fee is $40 and a license is not required.  Advance tickets are available by calling (443) 513-4456.  Advance ticket holders may enter the grandstands early at 4:30pm.

PREVIEW: BLOOMINGTON INDIANA SPRINT WEEK


 

By: Richie Murray - USAC Media


 

Bloomington, Indiana (July 28, 2020).........Bloomington Speedway and NOS Energy Drink Indiana Sprint Week have been synonymous for over three decades.  Only the quarter-mile red clay can lay claim to being on the ISW schedule every year since 1988.


 

That tradition continues this week for a 33rd straight year on Friday night, July 31, for the Sheldon Kinser Memorial when the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Cars make their 39th ever visit to the uber-scenic southern Indiana facility, which often seems to play a role in the ISW championship outcome.


 

Eleven times has the Bloomington ISW winner gone on to win Indiana Sprint Week that same year, but not since Kevin Thomas Jr. in 2017.  No driver owns more ISW victories at Bloomington than the Cullman, Ala. with three, a number equaled by both Kevin Briscoe and Bryan Clauson.


 

Thomas led three different times for a total of 13 laps in last year's ISW feature at Bloomington, but it was one final lap that decided his fate.  After swapping the lead multiple times down the stretch, on the final lap, Thomas rocketed around the outside of Jason McDougal in turns one and two, locked up the bottom in three and four and raced to his third victory in the event following triumphs in 2012 and 2017.


 

Bloomington holds a special place in Thomas' career as the 2012 race marked his first career USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car win, of which he now owns 27 (17th all-time in series history).  He's finished inside the top-four in his last four ISW Bloomington races, wins in 2017 & 2019, a 2nd in 2018 and a 4th in 2016.  Thomas was also the fastest qualifier in 2018.


 

Bloomington Speedway's USAC Sprint Car track record holder at 10.685, C.J. Leary (Greenfield, Ind.) was the 2018 ISW winner at Bloomington where he dominated all 30 laps in the process.  The defending ISW and USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car champion was 4th in both 2014 and during his title run of 2019, picked up a 6th in 2016 and a 10th in his second full-time USAC season of 2013.


 

Brent Beauchamp (Fairland, Ind.) was victorious at Bloomington in an unpredictable 2016 Indiana Sprint Week which featured four first-time USAC National Sprint Car winners.  Beauchamp was one of those four, emerging as the victor in a battle with three-time ISW champion Dave Darland that saw seven lead changes in 30 laps.  Beauchamp also took home finishes of 3rd in 2012 and 10th in 2018.


 

Darland (Lincoln, Ind.) has an incomprehensible 20 top-ten finishes at Bloomington during Indiana Sprint Week dating to 1990. Among those are 11 top-five finishes, including a win in 2007; 2nd place finishes in 2005-11-12; 3rd place results in 2008-14-16; 4th place runs in 1995 & 2001; and a pair of fifths in both 1993 & 2003 for good measure.  The USAC Triple Crown champ posted the fastest qualifying time in 2011 and has won three times total in his USAC Sprint career at Bloomington.


 

Past Indiana Sprint Week and USAC National Sprint Car champions Brady Bacon (Broken Arrow, Okla.) and Chris Windom (Canton, Ill.) have each won USAC Sprint features at Bloomington, but not so as of yet during ISW.  Bacon, the 2016 ISW champ, won at the track in the Spring of 2019 in new track record fashion at 6:47.18 for 30 laps.  His ISW resume at Bloomington includes a pair of fast times, during the rain-abbreviated event in 2015, and again in 2019.  He was also 2nd in 2016, 3rd in 2013, 4th in 2007, 6th in 2018 and 7th in 2019.


 

Windom (Canton, Ill.), meanwhile, won a Springtime USAC Sprint race at Bloomington in May of 2011.  The 2011 and 2018 ISW titlist owns a total of six top-ten Bloomington ISW runs in his career with a 3rd in 2018 as his best, followed by a 4th in 2013, 5th in 2014, 7th in both 2010 and 2017 and a 9th place result in his Rookie campaign of 2007.  He was the fastest qualifier at the ISW race in 2013. 


 

Shane Cottle (Kansas, Ill.), likewise, has been a USAC National winner at Bloomington, but it came behind the wheel of a Midget back during 2010 Indiana Midget Week.  His ISW Bloomington runs have peaked thus far at a 4th place finish in 2008.  He took 7th in 2011 and was 9th in 2012 while also picking up fast qualifying honors that same night.  His first top-ten run in the event came in 2007, a 10th.


 

Robert Ballou (Rocklin, Calif.) has returned to Indiana Sprint Week in 2020 after missing out on all of last year's summertime event due to a severe arm injury.  During ISW at Bloomington, the 2015 Indiana Sprint Week champion has a best finish of 3rd during his Rookie season of 2003.  His most recent top-five run in the event came back in 2017 with a 5th.  The driver/owner champion of USAC's AMSOIL National Sprint Car division in 2015 also tallied a 6th in the race in 2014, 7th in 2008, 8th in 2018 and 10th place results in both 2012 and 2016.


 

Chase Stockon (Fort Branch, Ind.) finished as high as 2nd during ISW at Bloomington in 2013 behind winner Bryan Clauson.  For the 2019 Jason Leffler Memorial Award recipient, that has been his only top-five run in the event to date.  He's also garnered finishes of 6th in 2012 and 2019, a 7th in 2018 and a 9th in 2017 for top-ten finishes there in each of the past three races.


 

USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car point leader Justin Grant (Ione, Calif.) earned his best Bloomington ISW result one year ago, finishing 3rd.  A pair of seventh-place finishes were in order for the 2010 USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Rookie of the year in both 2013 and 2014.


 

Thomas Meseraull (San Jose, Calif.) has recorded a pair of top-five finishes during the ISW round in Bloomington.  His first such being a 5th in 2016 with his best result thus far coming in 2018 with a 4th.  Most recently, the two-time ISW feature winner collected a 10th place result in 2019.


 

Additionally, of note, Pleasant Hill, Ohio's Matt Westfall was 4th in ISW at Bloomington in 2004; Marion, Ill. native Carson Short was the fastest qualifier in 2017; Collinsville, Oklahoma's Tyler Thomas picked up a 3rd place result in 2017; and Terre Haute, Indiana's Brandon Mattox earned his best career USAC National Sprint Car feature finish of 5th there in 2019.

TRI-STATE SPEEDWAY INDIANA SPRINT WEEK PREVIEW


 

By: Richie Murray - USAC Media


 

Haubstadt, Indiana (July 28, 2020).........The finale.  The climax.  The culmination.  Whatever you want to call it, the last race of NOS Energy Drink Indiana Sprint Week is the ultimate payoff when we discover who has displayed their excellence most consistently throughout the entirety of the seven-race series.


 

Not to mention, we will also will be witnesses to a field of 48 whose main goal is to win the night - 30 laps of supremacy that lie ahead for a driver and team to reach one of the pinnacles of USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car racing, to reign victorious during Indiana Sprint Week.


 

Kyle Cummins knows that feeling all too well.  Last year, in 2019, Cummins qualified for all ISW eight features, finishing in the top-ten in seven and was in contention night-after-night, finishing with a flourish after a victory two nights prior at Lincoln Park, a near win the night before at Bloomington and closing out the week-plus series with a triumph at Tri-State Speedway after trailing for the first 26 laps.


 

The Princeton, Ind. driver was literally unbeatable at Tri-State in 2019, going 9-for-9 in Sprint Car competition, including two USAC victories, one of which came during ISW.  It was his second in ISW at TSS after earlier winning in the event during the summer of 2017, half of his four total USAC victories at quarter-mile dirt oval in southwestern Indiana.  The 2019 HARF Driver of the Year has also finished as the runner-up during ISW at TSS in 2014 and 2016, was 7th in both 2015 and 2018, and 10th in 2012.


 

ISW's all-time king in terms of victories (20), Dave Darland of Lincoln, Ind., broke through for his first TSS win during 2018 ISW with a late-race pass of Chris Windom.  Darland has two other "podium" finishes in the event, a runner-up result in 2001 and a 3rd in 2010, while also gathering a fast qualifying time in 2012, plus a 6th in 2008, an 8th 2006 and a 10th in 2005.


 

Carson Short (Marion, Ill.) is among the rare breed who've won both his first USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car feature and World of Outlaws Sprint Car event at the same venue.  Short captured the ISW win at TSS in USAC's 10,000th race in 2016 and also mastered WoO's visit this past June.  He was also a 10th place TSS ISW finisher in 2017.


 

Brady Short (Bedford, Ind.), no relation to Carson, has long had a mastery of Tri-State Speedway for the better part of 15 years.  His 2015 TSS ISW score is among his two wins at the track and set a new USAC track record for the 30-lap distance.  His 5th place run in 2011 served as his second best result in the event while also garnering a 7th in 2008 and a pair of 10th's in 2006 & 2009.


 

Robert Ballou (Rocklin, Calif.) notched his still lone Tri-State USAC victory during ISW in 2014.  His results at the track have progressively gotten better and better over the years with his first top-ten, a 10th, with ISW at TSS in 2008, then bumping up to a 9th in 2009, 8th in 2012, 4th in his ISW title season of 2015-16 and 6th in 2017.


 

Kevin Thomas Jr. (Cullman, Ala.) is equaled with Daron Clayton as the all-time winningest driver in USAC National Sprint Car competition at Tri-State with five triumphs during his career.  However, none of those five for the 2017 ISW titlist have come during ISW.  He's been as close as you can get on multiple occasions with runner-up results in 2015 and 2017, a 4th in 2018 and a 9th in 2016.  He captured fast qualifying honors during that 2018 race.


 

Chris Windom (Canton, Ill.) won the Spring opener at TSS in 2017.  Like Thomas, however, that first ISW victory at TSS has thus far eluded the 2011 & 2018 Indiana Sprint Week champ.  His 2nd place result in 2018 has been his best so far, with a 3rd in 2015, an 8th in 2010, a 9th in 2012 and a 10th in 2011 to his credit.


 

Another ISW champ, Brady Bacon (Broken Arrow, Okla.), has also been a Springtime  USAC Sprint winner at Tri-State during the 2015 season.  The 2016 ISW champion has flirted with the edges of the top-five in the past half-decade of ISW races at TSS with a 6th in 2014 and a 7th in 2016 before breaking through for his first top-five run in the event in 2019, tallying a 5th.


 

Chase Stockon's proximity to Tri-State Speedway, living in nearby Fort Branch, Ind., mirrors his proximity to victory lane during ISW at TSS over the years.  The Spring 2016 Tri-State USAC Sprint victor was 3rd during ISW at TSS in both 2016 and 2018, 4th in 2019 and 5th in both 2012 and 2015.


 

USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car point leader Justin Grant (Ione, Calif.) has been the dominator of qualifying in Indiana Sprint Week events at Tri-State, taking home the honor on four separate occasions over the last decade in 2010-15-17-19.  He earned his best result in the event in the most recent TSS ISW feature during the Summer of 2019.  He's also been a 4th place runner in 2017, 6th in 2018 and 8th in 2015.


 

Reigning ISW and USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car champion C.J. Leary (Greenfield, Ind.) has won on multiple occasions with MSCS at Tri-State in his career, but that first USAC victory at the track has not yet been pocketed.  His 5th in 2018 is the best on his TSS ISW resume thus far with another trio of top-tens on his tab, a 9th in 2014 and 10th place runs in 2015 and 2019.


 

Thomas Meseraull (San Jose, Calif.) nearly collected a USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget victory in the Fall of 2019 at Tri-State.  His ISW record there includes a 5th in 2017 and a 9th in 08.  Shane Cottle (Kansas, Ill.) was a best of 6th in 2007; Critter Malone (Pittsboro, Ind.) earned a solid 6th in 2016.  Kurt Gross (Washington, Ind.) snared his best career Indiana Sprint Week result with a 7th in 2010.  Kendall Ruble (Vincennes, Ind.) collected an 8th on his ISW run at TSS in 2019.


 

Tickets for all Indiana Sprint Week events are available while supplies last, exclusively at  www.usactickets.com.  Adult general admission tickets for Tri-State are $25 while kids age 13-18 are $20 and children 12 & under are free.  Pit passes are $30 apiece.

TERRE HAUTE INDIANA SPRINT WEEK RACE PREVIEW


 
By: Richie Murray - USAC Media

 
Terre Haute, Indiana (July 27, 2020).........One of the most tenured and treasured stops on the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car calendar greets the tour for the 164th points race in series history at the famed Wabash Valley Fairgrounds half-mile known as the Terre Haute Action Track on Wednesday night, July 29, for the resumption of the "second-half" of the 33rd annual NOS Energy Drink Indiana Sprint Week schedule - the Dorsett Automotive Don Smith Classic.

 
Terre Haute has held 17 previous Indiana Sprint Week races since its debut on the slate in 1997.   Three drivers who've won the event in recent years are entered for Wednesday's edition, including Chris Windom (2011), Kevin Thomas Jr. (2013) and Chase Stockon (2016).

 
Windom (Canton, Ill.) comes in 8th overall in the current ISW standings, but his prowess at the Action Track shows no bounds with a Silver Crown victory and five overall USAC National Sprint Car feature wins there, including the most recent on July 1 of this year in the 50th annual Tony Hulman Classic.   In ISW competition there, following his win in 2011, he garnered additional 5th place runs in 2014 and 2019, plus a 6th in both 2016 and 2018, a 9th in 2013 and a 10th in 2012.

 
Stockon (Fort Branch, Ind.), along with Windom, has won each of the "big three" USAC National Sprint Car events at Terre Haute, including the Tony Hulman Classic, Jim Hurtubise Classic and the Don Smith Classic during ISW in 2016.   Among Stockon's ISW runs at THAT are, in addition to his triumph, a 5th in both 2013 and 2015, plus a 9th in 2019 and a 10th all the way back in 2010.   The series' "ironman," now with 308 consecutive series starts and is third in this year's ISW points, was the fastest qualifier during ISW at THAT in 2018.

 
Thomas (Cullman, Ala.) has twice been a USAC Sprint winner at Terre Haute.   The now 27-time USAC Sprint winner's first such score came amidst a three-race winning streak during the 2013 Indiana Sprint Week event in which he emerged as the victor in a furious last lap battle with Dave Darland. Thomas also scored a 3rd in 2019 and a 5th in 2018 to go along with the 2013 victory at the place in which he also won a USAC Sprint race in late 2017.

 
One driver has a chance to become the first individual since Thomas to win three-in-a-row during ISW.   That's C.J. Leary (Greenfield, Ind.) who's won the past two ISW events over the weekend at Kokomo and Lawrenceburg.   Leary, thus far, has a pair of top-10 Terre Haute ISW performances - a 10th in 2016 and a 6th in 2019.   It was during the 2016 season, however, that Leary won his first career USAC Silver Crown race during the Sumar Classic at Terre Haute.   He rides in fourth in the ISW standings, 17 behind  point leader Brady Bacon.

 
Terre Haute's USAC Sprint Car one-lap track record holder at 19.225, Bacon (Broken Arrow, Okla.), the 2016 ISW champion, hasn't won yet this week, but his consistency has been the key with finishes of 8th, 2nd and 3rd through the first three.   The same type of consistency has rung true throughout the 2014 & 2016 USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car champion's ISW career at THAT with 3rd place results in 2013 and 2014, 4th place finishes in 2016-18-19 and a 7th in 2015.   He's won twice at Terre Haute in his career during late season runs in both 2014 & 2018.

 
Darland (Lincoln, Ind.) leads practically every single statistical category of ISW.   He's made an appearance in every single Indiana Sprint Week event at Terre Haute since 1997, a night where he finished 3rd.   The 1999 USAC National Sprint Car champ possesses two series wins at THAT, in 1993 and 2014, but has come oh-so-close a number of times throughout his career at the track during ISW.   He finished 2nd in 2010, was 3rd in 1997, 2005, 2009 & 2015 as well as 5th in 2004 among his six top-fives and 11 top-tens in the event.

 
The same has been the case with Robert Ballou (Rocklin, Calif.), a two-time USAC Sprint winner at THAT in late 2015 and early 2016, but none as of yet during ISW.   He's surrounded victory of Terre Haute's ISW race annually over the past decade and is looking to make the next step to the pinnacle.   The 2015 ISW champ has been the ISW THAT runner-up finisher during the last four times he's entered the event in 2014-15-16-18.   The event was rained out in 2017 and he was  absent in 2019 while recuperating from a serious arm injury.   You'd have to go back over a decade to find the last time he's finished outside the top-ten with ISW at Terre Haute, also scoring 4th place finishes in 2011 & 2013 and 6th in 2012.   He was also the fastest qualifier in 2014.

 
Justin Grant (Ione, Calif.) leads the overall USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car standings coming in, but at the moment, he sits just five points behind Bacon in pursuit of the ISW championship with four races remaining.   Grant captured his first Terre Haute USAC Sprint win last Fall in 2019 and has also won in Silver Crown competition there during the 2018 Sumar Classic.   His THAT ISW record includes "podium" finishes in each of the last two events, a 3rd in 2018 and a 2nd in 2019, which goes along with a 6th in 2014 and an 8th in 2015.

 
Current ISW ProSource Passing Master point leader, Shane Cottle (Kansas, Ill.) topped off with a runner-up finish during the 2005 Terre Haute ISW round, adding another top-five with a 5th in 2011.   The veteran driver who's already won in USAC Sprint competition earlier this July in Putnamville, Ind., was 9th at THAT ISW in 2014, plus 10th in both 2013 and 2015.

 
Bill Rose, whose lone Indiana Sprint Week victory came during the summer of 1997, has entered for Terre Haute's ISW round on Wednesday night.   The Plainfield, Ind. native was the fastest qualifier in the event in 2000.   Likewise, Mitch Wissmiller (Saybrook, Ill.) was the top dawg in time trials there during the event in 2015.

 
Buckeye, Arizona's Charles Davis Jr., making his first Indiana Sprint Week run in several years, was a 10th place ISW THAT finisher in 2003.   Other combatants who've raced their way top-tens at Terre Haute in the busiest week of USAC Sprint Car racing all year long in the Hoosier state include Pleasant Hill, Ohio's Matt Westfall (7th in 2004), Marion, Illinois' Carson Short (7th in 2019), Loomis, California's Max Adams (8th in 2019) as well as Princeton, Indiana's Kyle Cummins (9th in 2019) who's 5th in the ISW standings coming in.

 
Indiana Sprint Week continues with round four of the series on Wednesday, July 29 at the Terre Haute Action Track.   Pits open at 3pm ET as does a dvance ticket entry for spectators.  Walk-up entry beginning at 4pm.  Hot Laps are scheduled for a 6:30pm start with racing to immediately follow.

 
Tickets for all Indiana Sprint Week events are available, while supplies last, at  www.usactickets.com .  Adult general admission tickets for Terre Haute are $25.  Infield tickets are $15.  Kids age 11 and under are free.  Remaining tickets, if available, will also be available at the gate on raceday.  Pit passes are $25 apiece for USAC members and $30 for non-members.

LINCOLN PARK INDIANA SPRINT WEEK PREVIEW

 
By: Richie Murray - USAC Media

 
Putnamville, Indiana (July 27, 2020).........Lincoln Park Speedway made its debut on the NOS Energy Drink Indiana Sprint Week schedule in 1988, the first year of the series when it was a five-race championship for winged sprint car racing.

 
These days, on this occasion in mid-summer, Indiana Sprint Week at Lincoln Park is home to the best of the best from USAC's AMSOIL National Sprint Car division.  For years upon years, many of the most memorable ISW moments and races can lay claim to have taken place at the 5/16-mile dirt oval in Putnamville, Ind.

 
One year ago, on a night when the lights went out around Lincoln Park Speedway, Princeton, Indiana's Kyle Cummins was "lights out" in his performance, leading from start to finish and wiring all 30 laps from the pole to win.  It remains his only top-five finish at LPS during his ISW career.

 
By far, the dominant figure throughout ISW history at Lincoln Park is 1990-91 track champion Dave Darland.  The Lincoln, Ind. driver has amassed six of his 20 career ISW victories at LPS in 1990-98-99-2005-12-18.  That's the most Indiana Sprint Week wins by any driver at a single track.  Darland, the 1998, 2001 & 2007 ISW champion, was also the fastest qualifier in both 1991 and 2004, and finished 2nd in 2001, 3rd in 1991 and 5th in 2014 among his nine top-fives and 13 top-tens.

 
Kevin Thomas Jr., the 2017 ISW champ, has been the fastest qualifier on three occasions during ISW at Lincoln Park in 2013-17-19.  The Cullman, Ala. driver has finished in the top-five in each of his past three LPS ISW appearances and in the top-10 five years running.  He was the runner-up in both 2012 and 2015, 4th in 2018 and 5th in 2017 and 2019.

 
Shane Cottle, a recent USAC Sprint winner at Lincoln Park on July 3, nearly won Lincoln Park's ISW race in 2012, leading 26 of the 30 laps before finishing 4th for his best result in the event.  The Kansas, Illinoisan took 7th in 2014 and 2016 and was 9th most recently in 2019.

 
Brady Bacon captured the victory on night two of LPS' Bill Gardner Sprintacular on July 4 at LPS with the Broken Arrow, Oklahoma driver charging from the 8th starting position to victory.  The 2016 ISW champ was victorious in his 2015 LPS ISW trip and 2nd in 2019, plus 6th in 2013 and 9th in 2014.  Twice he has recorded the fast qualifying time in the event in the years of 2014 and 2018.

 
Chris Windom (Canton, Ill.) has also declared victory at Lincoln Park in 2020 during June's USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget show during Indiana Midget Week.  A similar winning effort has yet to come to fruition for the two-time ISW champ in 2011 & 2018 champ who earned his best LPS finish of 2nd that same year.  Windom took 5th in 2013, plus an 8th, 9th and 10th in the odd numbered years of 2015-17-19, respectively.

 
If you're into even more number games, every three-year span seems to be Robert Ballou's year at Lincoln Park during ISW.  His 2014 and 2017 victories mark two his three USAC Sprint wins at LPS.  The mind ponders what ISW 2020 at LPS will bring for the 29-time USAC National Sprint Car feature winner.  At LPS ISW, the 2015 Indiana Sprint Week titlist's performances have been solid with a 4th in 2016, 6th in 2015 and 7th in 2013.

 
Fort Branch, Indiana's Chase Stockon has five top-tens to his credit during ISW at LPS.  He finished 10th thrice in a three-year span between 2013-14-15 before collecting a best of 2nd in 2016 behind winner Brady Short.  Stockon also earned a 9th in 2018.  Lincoln Park was the location that Stockon made his USAC debut for his now full-time team on the tour, KO Motorsports, which occurred during the two-night tilt in the month of July.

 
Thomas Meseraull (San Jose, Calif.) has finished inside the top-five twice in his ISW career at LPS with a best of 3rd in 2014, a 5th in 2016 and 10th place run in 2010.

 
Brent Beauchamp (Fairland, Ind.) and Shane Cockrum (Benton, Ill.) are the two Lincoln Park Sprint Car track champions represented in the 48-car field on Thursday.  Beauchamp, the 2012 & 2017 LPS champ and one-time ISW winner at Bloomington, was the fastest qualifier in USAC Sprint competition at LPS in July, his first fast time with the series in eight years.  He ran 9th in 2013 for his best LPS ISW result.  Shane Cockrum, meanwhile, a three-time USAC Silver Crown winner, has been a standout on a weekly basis in the LPS Sprint Car division, winning track titles in 2016-18-19.

 
USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car point leader Justin Grant (Ione, Calif.) has finished inside the top-five just once in the past decade of ISW visits to LPS, a 5th in 2018.  He also finished 6th in 2017 and 8th in 2019 at the event.  His 2nd and 3rd place runs in his two Lincoln Park USAC Sprint starts this year were the best of his career at the track.

 
A.J. Hopkins (Brownsburg, Ind.) is a towering presence at Lincoln Park with numerous weekly wins over the past several seasons.  He ran 3rd at LPS during ISW in 2018 to go along with a 2nd earlier that same month.

 
Carson Short (Marion, Ill.) rolled a pair of sixes in both the 2018 and 2019 event while C.J. Leary (Greenfield, Ind.), a winner at Kokomo and Lawrenceburg during rounds two and three of this past weekend's ISW was a 7th and 3rd place finisher over the last two years at LPS ISW in 2018 and 2019.  Brandon Mattox (Terre Haute, Ind.) had a successful 7th in 2019.  Jadon Rogers (Worthington, Ind.), who recently took over the wheel of the Randy Edwards No. 61m after June Haubstadt, Ind. USAC winner Stephen Schnapf stepped out of the ride, was the fastest qualifier with USAC on July 3 at LPS, his first career quick time with the series.

Trimble Triumphant in URSS Belleville 305 Nationals Finale!

Lonnie Wheatley, BELLEVILLE, Kan. (August 2, 2020) – Adam Trimble cashed in to the tune of $7,000 by winning Sunday afternoon’s Third Annual United Rebel Sprint Series Belleville 305 Sprint Car Nationals 20-lap finale atop the ½-mile Belleville High Banks clay oval.

Trimble wrestled the lead away from Stu Snyder on the sixth round and then survived a green-white-checkered restart after the race’s lone caution by holding off Snyder and Luke Cranston to post the win.

“We lost a brake rotor last night,” the Pueblo , CO , racer explained in victory lane.  “I don’t think I took a breath for the entire 20 laps.”

While Trimble led the feature field to the green flag with Cranston alongside, it was sixth-starter Snyder working the extreme upper portion of the High Banks to race into the lead on the opening round.

As Snyder continued to work the top, Trimble began nibbling at his advantage by working the low side.  Trimble pulled alongside after five laps and then took command on the sixth circuit aboard the No. 43 Sprint Car.

Snyder soon moved to the bottom as well before surrendering second to Cranston on the 13th lap.  Snyder began to surge in the final handful of laps, reclaiming second on the 17th lap and turning up the heat on Trimble until the race’s only caution flew for a Buddy Tubbs flat right rear tire with 19 laps in the books.

Snyder and Cranston kept the pressure on during the green-white-checkered run, but Trimble was up for the task.  Snyder and Cranston settled for second and third, respectively, with Jason Martin making a lap 13 move into fourth that stuck for the rest of the race.

Trevor Grossenacher rounded out the top five with Jeff Stasa, Friday night preliminary winner Zach Blurton, Jordan Knight, 15th-starter Jake Martens earned the Keizer Wheels Hard Charger  and Jed Werner completing the top ten. Martens would also earn the Keizer Wheels Hard Charger award with his performance.

With a revised format in place to accommodate daytime track conditions, J.D. Johnson established the overall quick time of 16.998 seconds in group qualifying with Cranston , Blurton, Grossenbacher and Knight winning the heat races.  Tubbs and Ty Williams topped “B” Main action.

The day came to an early end for both J.D. Johnson and Cody Ledger when the duo collided in turn two while battling the fourth and final transfer position midway through the first heat race.  Both went for a tumble with Ledger sailing out of the part over the turn two retaining fence.

Forty-six different drivers took part in the third rendition of the Belleville 305 Sprint Car Nationals.

Blurton Wires the Field in URSS Belleville 305 Nationals Preliminary Feature!

Lonnie Wheatley, BELLEVILLE, Kan. (July 31, 2020) – Zach Blurton kicked off the Third Annual Belleville 305 Sprint Car Nationals by wiring the field in Friday night’s 20-lap preliminary feature to take the $2,500 winner’s share atop the ½-mile Belleville High Banks clay oval.

Blurton gunned into the lead from the third starting position in the opening pair of corners and then paced the field throughout aboard the J&K Trucking No. 11 Maxim Sprint Car.

After charging past front row starters Jed Werner and J.D. Johnson at the outset, the Quinter racer weathered just one caution after two circuits for Ty Williams, who suffered race-ending damage after getting a piece of the turns one and two retaining fence.

Blurton sailed on the high side throughout, lapping up to 13th and took the checkered flag with four lapped cars separating himself from runner-up Johnson.  It was Blurton’s best Belleville 305 Nationals showing since placing sixth in the Saturday portion of the Inaugural event in 2018.

Goddard’s Johnson, the current United Rebel Sprint Series points leader, survived a perilous turn two encounter to post runner-up honors with Nebraska’s Stu Snyder filling out the podium in third.

Codell’s Jed Werner crossed the stripe fourth with Jetmore’s Jeremy Huish rounding out the top five.  Jason Martin was sixth with Steven Richardson, 15th-starter Cody Ledger, Jeff Stasa and 20th-starter Matt Covington completing the top ten.

Jordan Knight, Blurton, Richardson, Johnson and Tyler Knight topped heat race action for the 45-car field with Jack Dover, Kyler Johnson, Toby Chapman and Blurton victorious in Qualifying Race action before Tyler Drueke and Jake Martens topped the “B” Mains.

Neil Nekolite and Connor Atkinson both flipped in separate heat four incidents.  Neklolite returned to action while Atkinson was done for the night.

The Third Annual Belleville 305 Sprint Car Nationals wraps up with Saturday night’s $7,500-to-win tilt getting under way at 7:30 p.m.
