No More 2nd Thoughts: Ballou Wins USAC Sprint Return to I-70

Rich Forman

By: Richie Murray – USAC Media


 

Odessa, Missouri (May 14, 2022)………Robert Ballou returned the favor to Brady Bacon in more ways than one during Saturday night’s USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship event at Odessa, Missouri’s I-70 Motorsports Park.


 

After running second to Bacon in each of the past two series events in April at Ohio’s Atomic Speedway and on Thursday at Kansas’ Lakeside Speedway, Ballou turned the tables to reach victory lane for the first time in 11 months and for the 32nd time in his USAC National Sprint Car career, moving past Tyler Courtney and into a tie for 14th on the all-time list alongside 1973 series champion, Rollie Beale.


 

As fate would have it, Ballou (Rocklin, Calif.) had to withstand a late-race bout with Bacon to earn Saturday’s victory, dominating for the majority of the first two-thirds of the 30-lapper before being overtaken by Bacon with a mere nine laps remaining. However, the never-say-quit Ballou immediately clawed his way back to the lead a half-lap later and put the clamps on Bacon’s bid for a third-straight triumph, securing the lead all for himself for the final eight laps to earn his first victory celebration of 2022.


 

In what was the first USAC National Sprint Car appearance at I-70 in 26 years – first on the .045-mile dirt oval configuration – the win list at the track displayed six past National Sprint Car Hall of Fame inductees in the only six USAC Sprint Car events ever held at the track.


 

While Ballou will undoubtedly one day be enshrined in the HoF, just the same as Gary Bettenhausen, Sheldon Kinser, Jeff Swindell, Steve Butler, Tony Stewart and Eric Gordon, he now shares a common trait that each of those aforementioned racers possess on their resume – a USAC National Sprint Car victory at I-70 Motorsports Park.


 

“I’ve said since the beginning of the year that this is going to be the Bacon/Ballou show,” Ballou exclaimed. “Bacon’s got the best racecar, but I just wanted it a little worse tonight. It’s been a tough season and we’ve had a lot of problems, but I’ve got a lot of good guys behind me.”


 

In a myriad of ways, Ballou’s early season form is the type he hasn’t experienced since his USAC National Sprint Car title campaign of 2015. From his engine program on down to the shocks, Ballou has found the competitive fire and edge to regularly compete for victories in his Ballou Motorsports/Suburban Subaru – Dragonfly Aviation – Berks Western Telecom/Triple X/Ott Chevy.


 

“We got ahead of the game in 2015, and I kind of snuck up on everyone with the best engines in the country,” Ballou explained. “Then we laid in the weeds for a little while and got caught with our pants down. Now we’ve got some bullets under the hood, and I think we can keep up with the rest of these guys. We’ve got a brand new one coming for Eastern Storm, so I think it’ll be even better.


 

Ballou started his race from the outside of the front row but watched as pole sitter Mario Clouser kept Ballou at bay for the opening lap to lead by a half-car length at the line in the event co-sanctioned by the USAC Wholesale Batteries Midwest Wingless Racing Association. Ballou quickly put an end to the brief duel with a slide job on Clouser entering turn one moments later to take a firm grip of the race lead.


 

Promptly making mincemeat of the field, Ballou carved his way through traffic throughout the first 20 laps to build a commanding 2.5 second advantage with 12 laps in the book as Bacon surged through the field to slot himself into second past Clouser after starting back in the fifth spot.


 

From there on, the foible for Ballou was traffic as he cut in, around and between the tail end of the field while Bacon, the four-time series champ, snipped at the interval, dwindling it to within a couple of car lengths while Ballou became stymied behind the lapped car of series Rookie Alex Banales. Bacon pounced at the opportunity and slid past Ballou at the entrance to turn three.  Bacon completed the pass as he swept from the bottom of turn three up to the top of four, jammed between Banales, who was positioned just ahead of his front bumper and Ballou on his rear bumper.


 

“He kind of got into it a little bit when he slid up and was backing up the racetrack,” Ballou recalled when he lost the lead to Bacon. “I could’ve spun him out but that’s just not the way we race.


 

Using Banales as a pseudo pick, Ballou dove below both Bacon and Banales entering turn one while Bacon remained pinned behind Banales. That allowed Ballou to seemingly say “sayonara” as he bolted off into the distance never to be headed again as he completed his parting shot with a 3.632 second margin of victory over Ballou, Justin Grant and C.J. Leary with first-time series Fatheadz Fast Qualifier Emerson Axsom rounding out the top-five.


 

Brady Bacon (Broken Arrow, Okla.) nearly pulled off a third consecutive USAC National Sprint Car victory on Saturday night, leading a single lap ever so briefly with just nine laps remaining. Instead, he settled for second, making it his third-straight finish inside the top-two in his Dynamics, Inc./Fatheadz Eyewear – Gressman Sanitation – DriveWFX.com – Tel-Star/Triple X/Rider Chevy.


 

“He was definitely slowed down in traffic and the line I was running was clear,” Bacon explained of his late-race challenge of Ballou. “So, I was able to catch him really fast and, as I caught him and got him, the grip on the line I was running just went away.  I probably used up what I had when I tried to get by him, and he was able to get by me. After that, I was having more trouble with lapped cars, then he pulled away, so we just had to settle in. We gave it a shot and got in front of him once, but it wasn’t quite good enough. He set a pretty fast pace when he was up there by himself.”


 

Justin Grant (Ione, Calif.) recovered from his worst result of the USAC National Sprint Car season (10th) on Thursday night at Lakeside by finishing 3rd on Saturday at I-70. Grant and the team made wholesale changes in the time between the two events, and even had trouble with their semi-trailer en route to I-70. But all’s well ends well as Grant got back on track as the feature’s hardest charger, advancing from the 8th starting spot to take 3rd in his TOPP Motorsports/NOS Energy Drink – MPV Express – TOPP Industries – LA Poly/Maxim/Kistler Chevy.


 

“We worked on everything,” Grant stated. “We worked on the car, worked on the motor, worked on the driver, worked on the semi, and we had a heck of a trip out here. It’s been a little rough but we’re back on the podium tonight and we’re still out racing sprint cars. It’s better than digging ditches and grinding dumpsters. It’s what I’d be doing if I wasn’t here.”

Worth The Wait: It's a Back-To-Back Bacon Beatdown at Lakeside

Lonnie Wheatley

By: Richie Murray – USAC Media

 
Kansas City, Kansas (May 12, 2022)………With the havoc that Mother Nature had been playing on the USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship of late, it nearly seemed as if it had been five years since the series last completed a feature event.

 
While, in reality, just a tick less than a month ago had passed by since the last feature was completed, and it just so happened to be five years since the series had last competed at Kansas City, Kansas’ Lakeside Speedway.

 
Either way – one month or five years – the song remained the same with Brady Bacon backing up his victory with yet another. The Broken Arrow, Okla. driver entered Thursday night’s event as the most recent victor at the 4/10-mile dirt oval in 2017 and had also captured the most recent round contested at Ohio’s Atomic Speedway in mid-April.

 
The four-time series champion spent little time doddling on this evening’s co-sanctioned race with the USAC Wholesale Batteries Midwest Wingless Racing Association as he sprinted to the front from his fifth starting position by lap four and produced a K.C. Masterpiece of a drive with a drubbing of the 22-car field throughout the 30-lap main event, piloting his Dynamics, Inc./Fatheadz Eyewear – Gressman Sanitation – DriveWFX.com – Tel-Star/Triple X/Rider Chevy to a 4.595 second margin of victory.

 
His 42nd career series score was yet another in his succession of successes, as he rose to a tie for sixth on the all-time USAC National Sprint Car win list alongside Pancho Carter while surpassing Bryan Clauson in that department.

 
Bacon knows victory all too well at Lakeside, winning a TNT Sprint Bandits feature as far back as 2009 in KCK before winning once more in 2017 and again on Thursday night, which reminded him of the old times when he was a budding teenager just beginning to make his mark on the sport. As a now established veteran and champ, the good times are the same as it ever was.

 
“The track was more like it was 13 years ago when we used to run here and had a lot of success,” Bacon compared. “The banking has changed a little bit and it was spotty in the past like it was tonight. I knew if I could get my car to roll around the bottom, it’d be pretty hard for the top to be as fast. It kind of shelves off on exit.

 
(Turns) three and four had me scared,” Bacon continued. “I didn’t know how slow I was getting in lapped traffic. They had all my lanes taken up and I didn’t feel good enough on the bottom. I was hoping I could keep enough speed up to keep everybody at bay. I felt really, really good in one and two on the bottom and, luckily, I found it on the first lap and just stuck to it from then on.”

 
Pole sitter and series point leader Emerson Axsom took the top to surge to the lead on the opening circuit, but inside second row starter C.J. Leary skimmed the bottom to ride to the lead between turns one and two on lap two. Bacon briefly swung to the outside of Leary on the opposite end in three and four, trailing at the stripe by a single car length at the conclusion of lap two before ducking back to the bottom entering the first turn.

 
Bacon was committed to the bottom now and clung to it down the back straightaway and into the third turn on lap three. The trio entered the corner three abreast with Bacon down low, Leary to the middle and Axsom up on the high line and carrying the momentum to beat Bacon to the line by a half car length.

 
Axsom’s resurgence to the lead was brief as Bacon launched off turn two on the fourth go-around to rip past Axsom and, for all intents and purposes, put a lock on the remainder of the feature as he continuously grew his lead throughout the balance of the A, sticking to his guns all the way home.

 
“The bottom was my bread and butter, and I didn’t think it was going to last the whole race, so I wanted to make hay while the sun was shining, I guess, and make sure that I passed any cars on the bottom that I needed to while it was still there, but fortunately, in one and two, it stayed there the whole race.”

 
The race behind Bacon was not as much of a foregone conclusion down the stretch. Sixth-starting Robert Ballou, who picked up his first fast qualifying time since 2018 earlier in the night, and previously the lone multi-time USAC National Sprint Car winner at Lakeside entering the evening, climbed his way to second utilizing a turn three slide job on Axsom to gain the position with 12 laps remaining.

 
Bacon dealt with three lanes of traffic during the final laps, but it was of no hindrance to him in any form or fashion as he punctuated his dominance with a victorious performance over Ballou and Logan Seavey who overtook Axsom with four laps remaining to secure the last spot on the podium. Axsom and Leary, meanwhile, rounded out the top-five.

 
Ballou (Rocklin, Calif.) earned his second consecutive runner-up finish on the USAC National Sprint Car trail Thursday night in his Ballou Motorsports/Suburban Subaru – Dragonfly Aviation – Berks Western Telecom/Triple X/Ott Chevy. It was the 2015 series champion’s third career top-two finish with USAC at the track after winning in both 2015 and 2016.

 
“We were the second place car tonight,” Ballou acknowledged. “Brady (Bacon) and (crew chief) Matt Hummel and those guys were the class of the field. It took me a little while to get to second, and then we got the racecar a little too tight, and we were just kind of riding. I knew we were good enough to be second after hot laps no matter what, and it turned out to be the Brady/Ballou show as always. We weren’t very good tonight, and that’s why he was a half-track ahead of us.”

 
Seavey (Sutter, Calif.) has finished all five of his USAC National Sprint Car starts this season inside the top-ten. Starting with a 9th, 9th, 7th and 6th, the 2018 USAC NOS Energy Drink Midget National Champion picked up a 3rd place result on Thursday night in his first career series visit to Lakeside aboard his Baldwin-Fox Racing/Fox Paving – AMSOIL/DRC/Claxton Chevy. All that success came despite an inauspicious start to his run.

 
“I just got a really bad start,” Seavey explained. “I was pinned on the top and I knew early that the race would be on the bottom. Then, we kind of moved up, but I was just pinned up there and fell to fifth. I biked on my warmup lap and was super timid after that. I gave up a few spots and, once I got confident there at the end, I ran down C.J. and was able to get him in traffic. It was kind of the same with Emerson. My car was really good, but I just spooked myself on the warmup and it took me too long to get feeling comfortable again in my car. We were so fast all night; I’ve just got to do my job a little bit better earlier in the race and not let too many guys get by me. Overall, I’m really happy. We had good speed and I thought we were pacing with Robert right at the end. I’m excited to head into the next couple of nights.”

 
Thursday’s Lakeside event was the inaugural race of the Bubby Jones Master of Going Faster mini-series for the USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship, which will pay $5,000 to the overall points champion for the 10-race series within a series.

#LETSRACETWO AT ELDORA RAINED OUT, NO MAKEUP

 

Rossburg, Ohio (May 4, 2022)………This weekend’s edition of #LetsRaceTwo, featuring the USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship and the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Cars, scheduled for May 6-7 at Rossburg, Ohio’s Eldora Speedway, has been canceled.


 

The event will not be rescheduled.


 

A substantial amount of rain has already fallen this week on the Eldora Speedway grounds, and the forecast is calling for more storms and a heavy amount of precipitation to arrive this weekend, thus, forcing cancellation of the event.


 

“Based on all the information we have gathered today, including current extreme saturation on the track and negative forecasts from our all of weather consultant resources, we made this difficult decision to cancel,” said Jerry Gappens, general manager of Eldora Speedway, which has received approximately two inches of rain since Sunday and is expecting another two inches by the weekend.  “Hopefully, this early notice will help fans, teams, officials, and vendors reduce unnecessary travel costs.”


 

#LetsRaceTwo reserved tickets, general admission tickets, and campsites will be converted to account credits within each respective patron account.  This is an automated process that will be completed on Tuesday, May 10, 2022. Account credits never expire and can be used on any future ticket or campsite purchase. After the account credit process is complete, an email update will be dispatched to each patron.


 

In that same email, there will be a refund request form link.  Any #LetsRaceTwo credit may be converted to a refund by completing the form.  Refund requests must be received no later than 11:59 pm on May 31, 2022.  #LetsRaceTwo suite holders will be contacted on an individual basis over the course of the next few days.


 

USAC racing returns to Eldora Speedway for the 40th running of the 4-Crown Nationals on September 23-24, a jam-packed weekend featuring USAC’s Silver Crown, AMSOIL National Sprint Car and NOS Energy Drink National Midget series along with the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions.


 

At this Fall’s 4-Crown, each of three USAC features on Saturday night will pay $10,000-to-win! Friday night’s midget A-Main will pay $5,000-to-win.


 

USAC’s AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship season gets back on track next weekend on May 12-13-14 in Kansas and Missouri. First up, on Thursday, May 12, is a visit to Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan. Friday, May 13, marks the series’ first trip to Osborn, Missouri’s U.S. 36 Raceway in a decade. The weekend closes out on Saturday night, May 14, at Odessa, Missouri’s I-70 Motorsports Park for the first time in a quarter-century.

 

 

Repeat Granted: Grant Grasps 2nd Straight Sumar Classic Victory at Terre Haute

Lonnie Wheatley

By: Richie Murray – USAC Media


 

Terre Haute, Indiana (May 1, 2022)………Justin Grant was forced to endure a wait of four years to receive an opportunity to defend his Sumar Classic victory from 2018.


 

Four years later, in the ensuing edition of the event on Sunday night, the Ione, Calif. native retained his throne to become the first driver ever to reign victorious in consecutive runnings of the event at the Terre Haute (Ind.) Action Track.


 

Grant led 13 laps throughout the mid-portion of Sunday’s 100-lap USAC Silver Crown season opener around the newly-refurbished half-mile dirt oval, which featured a new nine-foot high guardrail in the turns. Yet, after losing the lead 13 laps later to first time series starter Buddy Kofoid, Grant felt as if he’d given the race away as he faded into the distance, falling back to third.


 

Granted a reprieve of sorts when Kofoid’s masterful drive came to an end as the right front arm on his car came off and unscrewed the shock, sending him flipping in turn two with 14 laps remaining, and elevating Grant to second.


 

When a caution arrived with four laps remaining for seventh running Kyle Robbins who stalled in turn three, Grant shot his shot on the first lap following the restart, sticking his maneuver to the bottom of turn three under leader Jerry Coons Jr., then exited turn four as the race leader and never looked back, taking the $8,000-to-win race by a 1.094 second margin in his Hemelgarn Racing/NOS Energy Drink – Super Fitness – Hemelgarn Enterprises/DRC/Speedway Ford.


 

Grant’s score was his first Silver Crown victory on dirt since the 2018 Sumar Classic, and the fourth overall win of his career with the series. Grant has captured feature victories in five of the nine USAC National points-paying events contested thus far this season and became the first driver to win this season in USAC Silver Crown, AMSOIL National Sprint Car and NOS Energy Drink National Midget competition.


 

“I really thought I gave the race away,” Grant admitted.  “I was riding and riding and I let some guys go.  We got that red there at the end, then I climbed out and looked at my tires and I’m like ‘ahh.’  I got on the radio and apologized to the guys.  I really put us in a hole here, but when you’ve got the best racecar, you’ve got to win the race.”


 

Initially, Grant had tracked down C.J. Leary just prior to midway on lap 46. Leary, who led a race-high 45 laps, was slid past by Grant in turn one, then subsequently experienced his right rear tire going flat just two laps later. While changing his tire under the yellow flag, Leary lost two laps in the work area. Despite the trouble, Leary managed to climb his way back into the top-ten by race’s end, finishing 10th.


 

Grant set the pace into the early portions of the second half when a suddenly surging Kofoid powered around the outside of Coons for the second spot on a lap 55 restart, then slid by Grant for the lead in turn one on lap 58. As Kofoid strengthened his lead to 2.5 seconds, Coons slotted into second past Grant in a drag race down the back straightaway, adjacent to the Action Dragway that runs parallel with the back straight, with 33 laps to go.


 

“I wasn’t doing a very good job through the middle of the race,” Grant acknowledged. “I kept getting in the holes, and just not really doing my job. Fortunately, these races are long enough for a guy like me to figure out. We picked our way through the holes, and once I found my way through the holes, I could rip the fence off two. I knew we were really good, but I thought I just wasted too much time.”


 

It became a sprint race with 30 to go as Kofoid pulled away by two seconds over Coons. Although Coons was gassing it on the topside and, at times, edged closer and closer to Kofoid, Kofoid broke away from the lapped traffic, splitting between the trio of Brian Ruhlman, Terry Babb and Dallas Hewitt to escape the pressure while Coons nearly kissed the outside turn two guardrail and lost all the ground he had recently gained.


 

Just as soon as you might’ve thought you knew how it all was going to unfold, on lap 87, all by his lonesome with a commanding 3.462 second lead, Kofoid’s mechanical issue tripped him up and sent him flipping over, handing the lead to Coons, the 2008 USAC Silver Crown titlist.


 

Grant got right to the back bumper of Coons for the lead in turn three with 10 laps to go but backed out and fell back into line behind Coons for the time being, then reloaded and conjured up his next modus operandi with Coons holding onto a two car length lead over Grant as the laps tick, tick, ticked away. Grant tried once more in turn three on lap 96 and squeezed his way between Coons and the inner rail, but, once again, it didn’t stick.


 

When seventh running Robbins’ troubles brought out the yellow on lap 97, lapped cars were absent from the equation, and it came down Coons vs. Grant with Brady Bacon a distant third. Grant threaded the needle on the first circuit of the lap 97 restart between the inner rail and Coons, slid across Coons’ nose as he drifted back to the top, and closed the book on the 19th running of the Sumar Classic as Grant won over Coons, Bacon, Logan Seavey and Emerson Axsom who finished fifth in his first career series appearance despite having starting issues prior to the the green flag, then was forced to begin his race from the tail and the 26th position.


 

“That wasn’t your normal Silver Crown race,” Grant exclaimed. “Normally, you kind of ride around until the end, but I don’t know if I’ve ever ran a sprint car around this place that hard. The track was technical and choppy. It was a ton of fun.”


 

Coons (Tucson, Ariz.) led 10 laps late and nearly pulled off his first USAC Silver Crown victory in eight seasons aboard his Patty Bateman/Tucker Automotive & Tire Repair of Alton, IL/DRC/Foxco Chevy. He wound up finishing second for his best Silver Crown result since a second at the Belleville (Kan.) High Banks in 2015.


 

“I’m bummed being that close with four to go and leading it,” Coons said. “To be bummed about a second place is a good thing for sure. (Car owner) Patty (Bateman) and the whole crew, they’re just so much fun to race with. It’s like a family team; there’s no pressure, and they gave me a great racecar tonight. Coming from 12th, we’ll take it, but it certainly hurts.”


 

Bacon (Broken Arrow, Okla.) thought he had Grant passed at one point, and same for Coons at the very end. In the end, he made the largest advancement from his starting spot to finishing position, charging from 16th to 3rd in his Five Three Motorsports/Fatheadz Eyewear – Smith Titanium – Indy Powdercoat/Maxim/Kistler Chevy.


 

“(Justin) was fading on the longer runs and we were better,” Bacon pointed out. “When he passed Jerry, Jerry was expecting us to come after him and pinched us down there to protect his spot, but with less than three to go, you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do. I caught my runs wrong and it was a little hard to pass getting into three. If you made a mistake, you were going to pay for it dearly.”


 

Three drivers experienced substantial crashes during the 10-lap qualifying race preceding the feature. Ronnie Wuerdeman barrel rolled in turn three on the opening lap and suffered a broken collarbone. Chris Fetter ramped over Casey Buckman’s right rear tire while battling for the fourth position in turn three, becoming the first to test the strength of the new guardrail, and experienced a deep laceration on his knee that required stitches. Dave Berkheimer, going for the sixth and final transfer spot on the last lap, flipped end-over-end into the front straightaway catchfence following contact with Patrick Lawson, but was able to walk away from the wreckage on his own.


 

Kody Swanson (Kingsburg, Calif.) was the night’s Fatheadz Fast Qualifier for the 37th time during his USAC Silver Crown career. It was his third career Sumar Classic pole award (2015-2017-2022) and it was also the fourth consecutive fast qualifying time on dirt in the series for a Chris Dyson-owned car dating back to 2021.

SATURDAY’S SPRING SHOWDOWN CANCELED DUE TO FORECASTED STORMS

 

Haubstadt, Indiana (April 30, 2022)………The 10th running of the Spring Showdown featuring the USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship and Midwest Sprint Car Series, scheduled for Saturday, April 30, at Haubstadt, Indiana’s Tri-State Speedway, has been canceled due to severe thunderstorms that are forecasted to arrive during the night’s racing event.


 

Using an immense amount of vigilance with costs in mind and the severity of the weather set to arrive, Tri-State Speedway and USAC officials have determined that making a decision early on race day was the prudent choice in this instance for the safety of race teams and race fans planning to attend the event.


 

“We’ve never been in favor of canceling a race ahead of time, and don’t intend to be in the future,” Tri-State Speedway promoter Tom Helfrich stated. “But in this instance, it is the responsible thing to do.”


 

USAC racing returns to Tri-State Speedway four more times in 2022. The USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship is back on July 30 for Indiana Sprint Week and on September 17 for the Haubstadt Hustler. The USAC NOS Energy Drink Midget National Championship is in action at The Class Track on June 5 for Indiana Midget Week and on October 8 for Harvest Cup.


 

This Sunday night’s May 1 Sumar Classic is on as scheduled with the USAC Silver Crown season opener at the Terre Haute (Ind.) Action Track. The 19th running of the event begins with pits opening at 1pm Eastern, the front gates opening at 2pm, the drivers meeting at 4pm and practice beginning at 5pm, followed by Fatheadz Qualifying, the last chance qualifying race and the 100-lap Sumar Classic feature event. Tickets are $30 for the grandstands, $20 for the infield and $35 for the pits. Kids age 10 and under are free.


 

USAC’s AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship season gets back on track next weekend on May 6-7 with #LetsRaceTwo at Rossburg, Ohio’s Eldora Speedway featuring the USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship & the NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws Sprint Cars.

In 1959, The USAC Benevolent Foundation was founded. Its purpose is to meet both short and long-term needs of auto racing families.  Examples include assisting those with disabilities who find themselves with overwhelming financial debt, providing equipment and resources to ease daily struggles, and, sadly, helping with funeral expenses.

 
The USAC Benevolent Foundation’s mission statement is to provide financial assistance to injured or needy auto racing participants and their families with ties to the United States Auto Club or INDYCAR.

Osborn, Missouri (May 10, 2022)………Over the decades, a total of twelve Friday the 13th movies have been produced. In USAC racing’s history, 19 such events have taken place on the 13th day of the month on a Friday.


 

Number 20 arrives this Friday night, May 13, when the USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship returns to Osborn, Missouri’s U.S. 36 Raceway after a decade away from the speedy 3/8-mile dirt oval for the $6,000-to-win and $600-to-start 30-lap main event.


 

The race is co-sanctioned by the Wholesale Batteries Midwest Wingless Racing Association that’ll compete in conjunction with the national series. The USAC national portion will pay full points toward the championship while the MWRA event is considered a non-points special event toward its season championship.


 

Robert Ballou and Justin Grant are among the array of drivers who’ve won on Friday the 13th in their USAC National Sprint Car careers. Ballou did so in 2015 at Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway while Grant got it done in 2019 at the Terre Haute (Ind.) Action Track.


 

Those two also just so happen to be among the proud and the few in this Friday’s driver lineup who competed with the USAC National Sprint Cars at U.S. 36 in the one and only appearance back in 2012. Ballou (Rocklin, Calif.) won his heat and finished 11th in the feature that night while Grant (Ione, Calif.) finished 10th and Chase Stockon (Fort Branch, Ind.) corralled a 4th place result.


 

Dynamics, Inc. and the Baldwin-Fox teams were in the field a decade ago as well, with Darren Hagen driving the Dynamics car to a 13th place finish and Thomas Meseraull piloting the Baldwin machine to 14th. Those two stalwart teams continue strong to this day with Dynamics and Brady Bacon (Broken Arrow, Okla.) leading the charge after scoring a victory in the series’ last outing at Ohio’s Atomic Speedway in April, while Baldwin-Fox brings Logan Seavey (Sutter, Calif.) and Alex Banales (Lafayette, Ind.) to the show for their U.S. 36 USAC debuts.


 

A slew of first-time U.S. 36 visitors, who have been prevalent in USAC National Sprint Car victory lane in recent years, are traveling to the Show-Me State this weekend. That group includes series point leader, and the lone multi-time series winner or 2022, Emerson Axsom (Franklin, Ind.) as is 2019 series champion C.J. Leary (Greenfield, Ind.) and series winners Jason McDougal (Broken Arrow, Okla.), 2017 USAC West Coast Sprint Car champion and 2021 USAC National Most Improved Driver Jake Swanson (Anaheim, Calif.), plus Carson Short (Marion, Ill.) and Matt Westfall (Pleasant Hill, Ohio).


 

In the lineup for their U.S. 36 debuts are recent award winners seeking their first USAC triumph this weekend – 2020 USAC National Most Improved Driver Brandon Mattox (Terre Haute, Ind.) and 2020 Rookie of the Year, Jadon Rogers (Worthington, Ind.) along with current USAC West Coast Sprint Car point leader Ricky Lewis (Oxnard, Calif.).


 

The high, high majority of U.S. 36 sprint car experience in Friday’s field comes from the USAC MWRA contingent. Wyatt Burks (Topeka, Kan.), the 2020 MWRA champ, has captured victory in all three of MWRA’s visits to the track between 2020 and 2021.


 

In those same three events, Wesley Smith (Billings, Mo.) notched three successive top-five results with 3rd place finishes in both 2020 features along with a 5th in 2021.


 

Chris Parkinson (Gladstone, Mo.), the 2014 WAR Sprint Car champion, scored a third with WAR in 2017 at U.S. 36.  The third generation of the legendary Parkinson family, grandson of Ralph and son of Junior, also finished as the runner-up behind Burks in the 2020 MWRA contest at U.S. 36.


 

Zach Clark (Olathe, Kan.) finished in the 9th position twice at U.S. 36 with WAR in 2017 and again with MWRA in 2021. Chad Tye (Independence, Mo.) was a top-ten runner with MWRA there in 2020. Fellow independent wheelman Dakota Earls (Independence, Mo.) garnered a 15th in 2020. One-time MWRA feature winner Xavier Doney (Odessa, Mo.) slotted into 19th in 2021.


 

Veteran sprint car and midget racer Chad Frewaldt Kansas City, Kan. will race a car owned by fellow MWRA competitor Kyle Lewis for this weekend’s USAC swing. He’s joined by competitors on the brink of their first career USAC National Sprint Car appearance and their first career series start, a list that includes Justin Johnson (Platte City, Mo.), Chase Howard (Olive Branch, Miss.) and A.J. Gilbert (Tonganoxie, Kan.).


 

Levi Jones captured the only previous USAC National Sprint Car feature at U.S. 36 Raceway in 2012, leading just the final three laps following a late-race pass of Kevin Thomas Jr. Bryan Clauson owns the one-lap track record of 12.075 mph.


 

On Friday, the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Cars will be accompanied by E-Modifieds and Pure Stocks.


 

Pits open at 5pm Central with the grandstands opening at 6pm, the drivers meeting at 6:30 and cars on track at 7pm with qualifying and racing immediately following.


 

Tickets are $25 with military/senior age 65 or older tickets priced at $22. Kids age 7 to 12 are $8 while children age 6 years and younger are free. Pit passes are $35 for members and $40 for non-members.


 

Friday’s action from U.S. 36 Raceway can be watched live and on-demand on FloRacing at https://bit.ly/3dgONXz.


 

It’s all part of a mega three-race weekend for the USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship in Kansas and Missouri. Thursday starts the weekend on May 12 at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan. for the first time in five years; followed by the return of the series to Osborn, Missouri’s U.S. 36 Raceway after a decade absence on Friday night, May 13; and the first run at Odessa, Missouri’s I-70 Motorsports Park’s dirt track in 40 years on Saturday night, May 14.

Highway Song: I-70 Completes USAC Sprint Trifecta On Saturday

Jack Reitz

By: Richie Murray – USAC Media


 

Odessa, Missouri (May 11, 2022)………It’s been more than a quarter century since USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship racing has hit the high banks of Odessa, Missouri’s I-70 Motorsports Park.


 

But this Saturday night, May 14, the two fixtures pair up for the first time since 1996, and this occasion once again provides a new challenge for the competition in the $6,000-to-win and $600-to-start main event.


 
The racing night is co-sanctioned by the Wholesale Batteries Midwest Wingless Racing Association that’ll compete in conjunction with the national series. The USAC national portion will pay full points toward the championship while the MWRA event is considered a non-points special event.

 
None of this weekend’s expected field of entrants have competed under the USAC banner at I-70, which had been shuttered and overrun by mother nature from its 2008 closure until its grand reopening in 2021.

 
Despite only hosting USAC National Sprint Car events on six occasions over the past half-century, this is, in fact, the third different iteration of I-70 Motorsports Park the series will compete on. In 1970, 1978, 1990, 1995 and 1996, the track was in a half-mile pavement configuration. In 1982, the half-mile surface was covered by dirt.

 
All six of those events had victories claimed by National Sprint Car Hall of Fame inductees, evidence that it takes extra special attributes to conquer this place: Gary Bettenhausen (1970), Sheldon Kinser (1978), Jeff Swindell (1982), Steve Butler (1990), Tony Stewart (1995) and Eric Gordon (1996).

 
This weekend will feature a new first-time USAC National Sprint Car winner at I-70, which now measures as a 3/8-mile dirt oval, but retains its high banks, high stakes and high precision.

 
Among the leading contenders to accomplish the feat are USAC National Sprint Car championship regulars who’ve already tamed victory lane early in this 2022 season. Among them are top Rookie, two-time winner and championship point leader Emerson Axsom (Franklin, Ind.).

 
Second in the standings is Justin Grant (Ione, Calif.) who captured the most recent series event in the state of Missouri during 2020 at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely and is a one-time winner this season in USAC National Sprint Car competition.

 
Chase Stockon (Fort Branch, Ind.), third in points, looks to slide back into victory lane for the first time since 2020 this weekend. Four-time series champ Brady Bacon (Broken Arrow, Okla.) enters as the most recent series winner at Ohio’s Atomic Speedway in mid-April and sits fifth in points.

 
Logan Seavey (Sutter, Calif.) has won with the USAC NOS Energy Drink Midget National Championship in Missouri during his championship season of 2018 at Sweet Spring Motorsports Complex and resides sixth in the current sprint car standings.

 
Seventh in points, Jason McDougal (Broken Arrow, Okla.), likewise, has USAC winning experience in Missouri, taking the National Sprint Car stop at I-55 in 2018.

 
Robert Ballou (Rocklin, Calif.), eighth in the series standings, scored a Missouri USAC National Sprint Car feature win at Valley Speedway in Grain Valley a decade ago in 2012.

 
Ballou, the 2015 champ, will be one of three USAC National Sprint Car titlists in Saturday’s lineup along with Bacon (2014-16-20-21) and C.J. Leary (Greenfield, Ind.), the 2019 series king, who was sixth in his last Missouri run in 2020 at Pevely and holds the 10th position in the current standings coming in.

 
Winning experience at I-70 comes from the USAC MWRA contingent. Wyatt Burks (Topeka, Kan.), the 2020 MWRA champ, scored a victory with the POWRi WAR Sprint Car series at the track in 2021 and finished 6th the night before. The opener of the 2021 race weekend was notched by Wesley Smith (Billings, Mo.) who traded places with Burks by running 6th on night two.

 
They’ll both be in the field as they vie for their respective first career USAC National Sprint Car wins. The I-70 experienced also includes Zach Clark (Olathe, Kan.), 11th and 15th in 2021; plus J.D. Black (Grain Valley, Mo.), 14th and 16th with WAR in 2021.

 
The majority of the field is rowing in the same boat with Saturday marking their initial I-70 experiences. That includes USAC National Sprint Car feature winners such as 2017 USAC West Coast Sprint Car champion and 2021 USAC National Most Improved Driver Jake Swanson (Anaheim, Calif.) as well as Carson Short (Marion, Ill.) and Matt Westfall (Pleasant Hill, Ohio), all single-time series winners thus far.

 
Series regulars and first-time USAC National Sprint Car winning hopefuls in Saturday’s field will sport the likes of 2020 Rookie of the Year Jadon Rogers (Worthington, Ind.), 2020 USAC National Most Improved Driver Brandon Mattox (Terre Haute, Ind.) along with current USAC West Coast Sprint Car point leader Ricky Lewis (Oxnard, Calif.) and series Rookie Alex Banales (Lafayette, Ind.).

 
The USAC MWRA series provides a healthy contingent of Kansas and Missouri natives looking to hold down the fort in their backyard. That’s a group that sees 2014 WAR Sprint Car champion Chris Parkinson (Gladstone, Mo.), Chad Tye (Independence, Mo.), Dakota Earls (Independence, Mo.) and one-time MWRA feature winner Xavier Doney (Odessa, Mo.).

 
Veteran sprint car and midget racer Chad Frewaldt Kansas City, Kan. is in that sector as well and will race a car owned by fellow MWRA competitor Kyle Lewis for this weekend’s USAC swing. Five-time USAC National Sprint Car feature starter Mitchell Davis (Auburn, Ill.) will be in the hunt as well. They’re joined by competitors on the brink of their first career USAC National Sprint Car appearance and their first career series start, a list that includes Mark Lane (Grain Valley, Mo.), Justin Johnson (Platte City, Mo.), Chase Howard (Olive Branch, Miss.) and A.J. Gilbert (Tonganoxie, Kan.).

 
Saturday’s event features the USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship along with Show Me Vintage Racing.

 
Gates open at 5pm Central with the drivers meeting at 5:30pm and cars on track at 6pm followed immediately by qualifying and racing.

 
Advance tickets are now on sale at: https://tickets.thefoat.com/I70MotorsportsPark/USAC+Sprints+%26+Show+Me+Vintage/tickets/event-239597/. Adult general admission tickets are $25.

 
Saturday’s event at I-70 Motorsports Park can be watched live and on-demand on FloRacing at https://flosports.link/3KZSqAP.

 
It’s all part of a mega three-race weekend for the USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship in Kansas and Missouri. Thursday starts the weekend on May 12 at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan. for the first time in five years; followed by the return of the series to Osborn, Missouri’s U.S. 36 Raceway after a decade absence on Friday night, May 13; and the first run at Odessa, Missouri’s I-70 Motorsports Park’s dirt track in 40 years on Saturday night, May 14.

Gone Racin': USAC Sprints Take the Show to Lakeside on Thursday

Tyler Carr

By: Richie Murray – USAC Media


Kansas City, Kansas (May 10, 2022)………For non-racing folk, when the weather gets nice, plans are made to head to the lake. For racing drivers, teams and fans alike, this weekend, the plans call for a trip to Lakeside.


 

For the first time in five years, the USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship is tuned up to compete at the 4/10-mile dirt oval of Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan. this Thursday night, May 12, for $6,000-to-win and $600-to-start.


 

The event is co-sanctioned by the Wholesale Batteries Midwest Wingless Racing Association that’ll compete in conjunction with the national series. The USAC National portion will pay full points toward the championship while the MWRA event is considered a non-points special event.


 

The weekend presents the first visit for the series to Lakeside since 2017. Two different Lakeside Speedways in KCK have contested a total of 18 USAC national events dating back to 1963. In that span, only one driver has scored multiple victories at the joint. That’s Robert Ballou.


 

Ballou (Rocklin, Calif.) notched successive Lakeside victories during his 2015 championship season and again in 2016. Ballou also holds Lakeside’s 8-lap USAC Sprint track record of 2:17.20, set in 2017.


 

Four-time USAC National Sprint Car champion Brady Bacon (Broken Arrow, Okla.) is the reigning USAC Sprint winner at Lakeside, which came in 2017 when he led all 30 laps. In fact, in Bacon’s four series starts at Lakeside, in addition to his win, he’s finished 3 rd in 2015, and was 2 nd on both nights in 2016, the latter of which he led a race-high 19 laps before seeing the win slip away with two laps remaining.


 

Chase Stockon (Fort Branch, Ind.) owns the one-lap USAC Sprint Car track record of 16.438 at Lakeside, set in 2017. In fact, he was also the fastest qualifier on night one at Lakeside in 2016. He’s yet to finish outside the top-six in his four attempts at Lakeside with a best of 2 nd in 2015, plus 4 th place results on night two in 2016 and in 2017, with the 6 th place finish coming on night one of 2016.


 

Justin Grant (Ione, Calif.) won his heat race and finished 2 nd in his only previous Lakeside USAC Sprint start in 2017. On May 1, Grant became the second quickest driver in USAC history to win a Silver Crown race, National Sprint Car race and NOS Energy Drink National Midget race in a season.


 

C.J. Leary (Greenfield, Ind.), the 2019 USAC National Sprint Car champ, has been a consistent top-ten finisher in his four previous runs at Lakeside, bested with a 6 th in 2017 to go along with a 7 th in 2015, and an 8 th & 9 th across two nights in 2016.


 

Series point leader, and the lone multi-time series winner in 2022, Emerson Axsom (Franklin, Ind.), is making his Lakeside debut as are top-ten pointsmen, Sutter, California’s Logan Seavey (6th) and Broken Arrow, Oklahoma’s Jason McDougal (7th).


 

Series feature winners making their Lakeside debuts include 2017 USAC West Coast Sprint Car champion and 2021 USAC National Most Improved Driver, Jake Swanson (Anaheim, Calif.), plus Carson Short (Marion, Ill.) and Matt Westfall (Pleasant Hill, Ohio).


 

Also making Lakeside debuts are a handful looking to make their first appearance into USAC National Sprint Car victory lane – 2020 USAC National Most Improved Driver Brandon Mattox (Terre Haute, Ind.) and 2020 Rookie of the Year, Jadon Rogers (Worthington, Ind.).


 

It’s a similar scenario for three-time USAC National Midget feature winner Zach Daum (Pocahontas, Ill.) who’ll make his USAC national debut at Lakeside following a 3rd place result there with MWRA in August of 2020. Ricky Lewis (Oxnard, Calif.), Alex Banales (Lafayette, Ind.) and 2021 POWRi WAR Sprint Car champ Mario Clouser (Auburn, Ill.) will also be on board for their initial Lakeside USAC national runs.


 

USAC national regulars will be joined by a number of representatives from the USAC Midwest Wingless Racing Association series.


 

The 2020 MWRA titlist, Wyatt Burks (Topeka, Kan.), is the winningest driver in series history with eight scores. He’s made one previous USAC national start at Lakeside, finishing 16 th in 2016. In 2020 with MWRA at Lakeside, Burks never finished outside the top-two in three starts, winning in August and finishing as the runner-up in both June and October.


 

Five-time MWRA winner Wesley Smith (Billings, Mo.) finished 4 th with MWRA at Lakeside in both August and October of 2020. Chris Parkinson (Gladstone, Mo), the 2014 WAR Sprint Car champion, has made three previous USAC National starts at Lakeside with a pair of 15 th place results in 2016 serving as his best. The third generation of the legendary Parkinson family, grandson of Ralph and son of Junior, Chris finished 4 th with MWRA at Lakeside in June of 2020.


 

Joining the group are a number of drivers shooting for their first career USAC National Sprint Car feature start of any kind. Among them are one-time MWRA feature winner Xavier Doney (Odessa, Mo.) who was 3rd with MWRA at Lakeside in August of 2021.


 

Mix in MWRA regulars and Lakeside experienced wheelmen such as Zach Clark (Olathe, Kan.) who took a 10th and 9th with MWRA back in 2020; Dakota Earls (Independence, Mo.), a 13th place finisher in 2021; Chad Tye (Independence, Mo.), 13th in 2020; and Justin Johnson (Platte City, Mo.), 17th in 2021, along with first-timers Chase Howard (Olive Branch, Miss.) and A.J. Gilbert (Tonganoxie, Kan.).


 

USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship, USRA Stock Cars and USRA B-Mods are on Thursday night’s event card.


 

Tickets will be available at the gate on race day. General admission tickets are $25 and, for seniors/military, they’re $20. Tickets for children aged 12-15 are $10 while kids aged 11 and under are admitted for free. Pit passes are $35 for members and $40 for non-members.


 

Pit gates open at 3pm CDT with the grandstands/ticket office opening at 5pm and hot laps at 6:30pm, immediately followed by qualifying and racing.


 

The Spring Showdown can be watched live and on-demand on FloRacing at https://bit.ly/3dgONXz.


 

Thursday’s USAC National Sprint Car event kicks off a mega three-race weekend for the series in Kansas and Missouri, followed by the first appearance of the series to Osborn, Missouri’s U.S. 36 Raceway in a decade on Friday night, May 13, and the first run at Odessa, Missouri’s I-70 Motorsports Park’s dirt track in 40 years on Saturday night, May 14.

USAC SPRINTS' BUBBY JONES MASTER OF GOING FASTER SERIES DEBUTS THURSDAY AT LAKESIDE

By: Richie Murray – USAC Media


 

Speedway, Indiana (May 7, 2022)………The Bubby Jones Master of Going Faster presented by Spire Sports + Entertainment mini-series for the USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship debuts this Thursday night, May 12, at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan.


 

Meanwhile, the original date at Rossburg, Ohio’s Eldora Speedway has now been moved to September 24 during the running of the 40th 4-Crown Nationals.


 

A new generation of racers will be chasing the $5,000 reward named in Jones’ honor throughout the 2022 USAC National Sprint Car season.  The Bubby Jones series encompasses 10 events on the USAC National Sprint Car schedule this season, all of which will take place at some of the most legendary tracks on the schedule, including half-miles and some of Bub’s favorite places throughout his storied career as a driver and crew chief.


 

In May, the “series within a series” begins at Kansas City, Kansas’ Lakeside Speedway on May 12, and follows to Indiana’s Terre Haute Action Track for the 52nd annual Tony Hulman Classic on May 21.


 

Two Eastern Storm dates are part of the series in June, at Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania’s Williams Grove Speedway on June 17 and Port Royal Speedway on June 18. A pair of Indiana Sprint Week dates are slated for Kokomo Speedway on July 23 and at Bloomington Speedway on July 29.


 

The final stretch of the Bubby Jones series features a trio of high-paying events. The $12,000-to-win Haubstadt Hustler kicks off the autumn on September 17 at Haubstadt, Indiana’s Tri-State Speedway followed by the $10,000-to-win Fall Nationals at Lawrenceburg Speedway on October 1 and the $20,000-to-win Oval Nationals at California’s Perris Auto Speedway on November 5.


 

Points will be tabulated throughout the 10-race series and an inaugural Bubby Jones Racing Master of Going Faster champion will be crowned, which will also include a custom trophy provided by Potter Metal Art and a year-end acknowledgement at USAC’s Night of Champions in December.


 

Norman “Bubby“ Jones was a 27-time winner in USAC National competition during his National Sprint Car Hall of Fame career. Among his 27 wins are seven each at Eldora and Terre Haute, two tracks featured prominently on the schedule.


 

Nicknamed Ol’ Bub, the racing barber who originally hailed from Danville, Illinois, established himself as an “outlaw” racer, winning from coast-to-coast until notching high-profile victories with USAC, including the CBS-televised Du Quoin Silver Crown in 1976, as well as the Turkey Night Grand Prix at Ascot Park in 1976 and the Hut 100 at Terre Haute in 1977.


 

Bubby reigned victorious at the Western World Championships in 1976 and, one year later, Jones made his one and only start in the Indianapolis 500 in 1977, starting 33rd and finishing 21st for car owner, Bobby Hillin.


 

Jones made his biggest impact with USAC on the National Sprint Car trail during the late 1970s, winning 22 total feature events. 1979 proved to be his breakout year with the series, winning on 11 occasions in one of the prolific seasons in the history of the division at places like Terre Haute, New Bremen, Eldora and the Indiana State Fairgrounds for car owner Don Siebert, and during one stretch, won four in a row before finishing as the championship runner-up.


 

At the dawn of the 1980s, Bubby moved west to begin the next chapter of his racing career. Competing with the California Racing Association, Jones piloted the Kazarian’s Gas Chem Products entry. In their first year together, Jones and Kazarian earned nine victories, including his first of four season-ending “Don Peabody Classics.”


 

By the time he hung up his helmet for good in 1991, Bubby had claimed 80 CRA feature wins (2nd overall), including a record 18 triumphs in 1983 and was a multi-time winner of the Firecracker 50, the Pacific Coast Nationals and the Don Peabody Classic. Bubby stayed active in racing as a crew chief and team manager. He continued to innovate in chassis designs and the development of Surelock shifter. In 1996, Bubby played a part in the construction of Perris Auto Speedway.


 

The Jones family’s involvement with USAC racing continues to this day. Bubby’s sons have made an indelible mark with the series, specifically in sprint car racing. As a driver, Tony Jones captured the 2007 USAC CRA Sprint Car title and his 20 victories with the series ranks fourth all-time. Currently, he serves as the series director for the division.


 

Bubby’s son, Davey Jones, has won a multitude of feature events on the USAC National Sprint Car tour as a crew chief, becoming a series champion in 2019 while turning the wrenches for driver C.J. Leary. That same year, Davey was honored as the recipient of USAC’s Chief Mechanic of the Year award.


 

Spire Sports + Entertainment will serve as the presenting sponsor of the series. SS+E has been involved in numerous race promotion and marketing efforts for tracks and events on the USAC schedule in recent years.


 

Founded in 2010, Spire Sports + Entertainment (SS+E) has blossomed into a multi-tiered entity. Since then, SS+E has become a subsidiary of parent organization Spire Holdings, which includes a a diverse sports portfolio, including Spire Motorsports, SS+E, ECHL hockey teams the Rapid City (S.D.) Rush and the Greenville (S.C.) Swamp Rabbits and short track promotions company Track Enterprises.

BOSS & Lawrenceburg Joined For King Of The Midwest

 
Early in the history of the MPD Racing Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series, the historic speed palace of the Lawrenceburg Speedway made up two rounds of the tour each season.  Along the way, BOSS tried to get more shows in their home state, limiting tracks outside of Ohio to one race.  However, when opportunity arises, as it has now, the 'Burg is the perfect place to add a show!

 
Originally scheduled at Atomic Speedway in Ohio, the Saturday, May 7th event was canceled when a side show event could not appear with the racing events at the race track.  Within hours of getting the news, BOSS was able to secure a deal with Lawrenceburg Speedway's promoter, Dave Rudisell, to move the event to the Dearborn County Fairgrounds bullet fast, high banked 3/8 mile track.  As fate would have it, last weekend's "King Of The Midwest" event was rained out and backed up a week, to now combine the best of both worlds for a rescheduled $2,500 to win main event.

 
With the addition of BOSS to the event, the track and the series are combining to pay the best of the two at each position through the field with BOSS also providing heat race cash and several bonus awards.  The new main event payout for Saturday is as follows:  2500, 1250, 1000, 700, 600, 500, 475, 450, 425, 400, 375, 350, 325, 300, 300, 300, 300, 300, 300, 300.  A certificate for a free Hoosier tire will also go to the feature winner.  Heat races will pay the top 4 finishers:  40, 30, 20, 10 thanks to TCB Speed, Brave Breeds Rescue, TheCushion.com and Outsiders Merchandise & Apparel.  Bonus awards of $50 will be given out by All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads, J F Construction, Cowen Truck Line, Accu-Force Shock Dyno and Home Turf Training Center. 

 
Saturday's pit gate will open at 4 with general admission gates opening at 5.  Hot laps will begin at 6 with opening ceremonies at 7 pm.  Adult general admission is $20 with kids ages 7-12 just $7 and kids 6 and under are free.  Pit passes for all ages is $35.  For competing teams, mufflers and racecivers are both mandatory.  The BOSS tour will have Hoosier race tires available for purchase.  For best selection of chalk marks and to reserve your tires, please call or text Aaron at 740-703-3768.  Teams are limited to one left and one right rear per night at each event.  

 
The MPD Racing Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series extends a sincere "thank you" to Dave and the entire staff at Lawrenceburg for helping save this date.  We ask the teams and fans to show their support and appreciation of this gesture by coming out on Saturday!  We hope to see everyone there for what promises to be an exciting evening of action!
