align=”center”>“This is incredible, That might have been one of the toughest races I’ve run. They were setting one heck of a pace. I kept working the bottom off of four and I thought if we got to traffic, I’d be alright and sure enough we got to it. These are the toughest guys to race against and to be able to win against these guys and race that hard- it was no easy win.” Danny Dietrich winning the Williams Grove Speedway National Open.

Matt Sheppard Scores Another Utica-Rome Speedway Win
MATT SHEPPARD SCORES ANOTHER UTICA-ROME SPEEDWAY WIN

style=”color: #000000;”>MATT SHEPPARD SCORES ANOTHER UTICA-ROME SPEEDWAY WIN
VERNON, NY- SUNY Canton and Wilbur Duck Chevrolet sponsored an intense night of racing action at Utica-Rome Speedway on Sunday, June 12th. The day was full of events that were rescheduled from earlier dates that had been postponed

ure, including the Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints and King of Dirt series for both 602 Sportsman and Pro Stocks. Matt Sheppard found his way to victory lane again in the Gates-Cole Insurance Modified feature, making it three on the year. Joining him in victory lane was Rocky Warner for the King of Dirt 602 Sportsman, Luke Horning for the King of Dirt Pro Stocks, and Steve Way for the Broedel Energy Open Sportsman. For the Empire Super Sprints, Jason Barney won the A-Main after a wild finish. For more details, see the Empire Super Sprints official release.
Tim Mayne and Mike Mahaney were the pair on the front row that took the green to begin the Gates-Cole Insurance Modified feature event. Using the top side, Mahaney was able to dig his right rear into the racing surface and take the lead. Behind him, Vic Coffey was starting to climb through the top five. The fifth circuit saw him catch Mahaney and use the bottom to slip on by and take the top spot. He didn’t have a chance to pull away, however, as defending track champion Matt Sheppard had already navigated the field and worked his way into the top five after starting 13th. On lap 10, Sheppard found some space underneath the leading Coffey and drove by for the lead.

SIMON SCORES IN LINCOLN USAC SPRINT “SPECIAL EVENT”

the first time since November 5, 2011 during the “Oval Nationals” at Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway, a track hosted multiple USAC National Sprint Car features in one night.

In Wednesday night’s second feature at Lincoln that awarded no points toward the series championship, the lineup was determined by who finished on the lead lap during the

feature and then completely inverted.  Nineteenth place finisher Carmen Perigo, the last driver on the lead lap in the first feature, would start from the pole alongside Landon Simon while first feature winner Clauson lined up 19th.

Perigo led the first two laps from the pole, but Simon would run him down to take the number one spot on lap three.

With five laps to go, it became a three-car race between Simon, Brady Bacon and Aaron Farney.  The trio were separated by an estimated three-car-lengths as they each hugged the inside guardrail around each turn.

Bacon continuously closed on Simon until he was right on Simon’s tail tank as the two headed for turn three.  Bacon threw a Hail Mary to the treacherous high side in order to find a single ounce of moisture that would propel him past Simon.  But it was not to be as Simon took his first career USAC-sanctioned victory and, in fact, Farney was able to make up the ground to beat Bacon to the checkered flag for the second spot.

With the win, Simon joined Troy Rutherford (Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Ill. 2003) as the only driver to be victorious in a non-points-paying USAC National Sprint Car event without having a single full-points series win to his credit.

Kline Wins and Ball Finishes Second at Knoxville Raceway
Kline Wins and Ball Finishes Second at Knoxville Raceway

class=”newsHead”>Inside Line Promotions – KNOXVILLE, Iowa (June 7, 2016) – White Lightning Motorsports captured its first win of the season last Saturday at Knoxville Raceway, where Devin Kline won his eighth career 305ci main event.

The win ties him with Larry Ball Jr., who is his car owner, for most triumphs in the class

lf-mile oval.

Saturday began with Kline qualifying sixth quickest before he advanced from fourth to second place in a heat race. Kline then started the main event on the pole with a six-car inversion for the 15-lap main event.

“The first two laps me and Christian (Bowman) were side by side,” he said. “Then he worked away from me. I was catching him on the bottom in turns one and two and losing him on the bottom in turns three and four. I moved up and followed him on the top in turns three and four and stayed on the bottom in turns one and two. When I finally moved by him I started working the bottom again.”

Kline took the lead on Lap 7 and pulled away for the victory.

Teammate Jamie Ball also had a standout performance in his return from a weekend off following a violent crash. Ball timed in fifth quickest in the 360ci class and he ended sixth in a heat race to advance into the feature inversion, which lined him up on the outside of the front row for the 18-lap main event.

“It went about as good as it could go for the most part,” he said. “Our weekend started off like normal where we put ourselves in a good spot. We qualified fifth and made it through the heat race. I was able to start on the front row of the feature. I led a couple of laps before getting beat by a little better car.”

Ball took the lead on Lap 8 and held onto the top spot until Ian Madsen passed him on Lap 14. Ball held on for the runner-up position, which marked his seventh top five of the season.

“I was fast on both the top and the bottom,” he said. “I was able to get by Matt Covington on Lap 8 and I led a few laps. I think we had five restarts and eventually it bit me. A couple of laps after a restart Ian Madsen got by me. We’re being consistent and it’s nothing to hang our heads about, but we’re hungry for a win.”

Ball will return to competition this Friday and Saturday at Knoxville Raceway. Kline is off this weekend.

BALLOU PICKS UP HIS OWN BIRTHDAY PRESENT!

class=”newsHead”>

March 29, 2015
Brownstown, Indiana

Robert Ballou continued his hot streak by picking up the $7500 payday at Brownstown Speedway’s annual “No Way Out 40” event. Originally scheduled for Saturday the event was pushed back to Sunday due to weather conditions, this gave Ballou the rare opportunity to race on his birthday.

Chilly weather conditions brought

ze, group qualifying resulted in Ballou starting in 3rd in his heat and finishing 2nd to Brady Short. The program moved along quickly with Ballou slated to start 6th in the 40 lap feature. Kevin Thomas Jr picked up the early lead in the race with Ballou hard charging to second by lap 12. Ballou continued to gain momentum and after 3-4 slide job filled laps was able to secure the lead over Thomas and then never looked back. Celebrating his birthday in victory lane, Ballou picked up his third win of the non wing season.

“Initially our plan was to come and check this motor out that we had gotten back and make sure everything felt good, I can’t say enough good things about these Don Ott motors and what they have done for our program as well as a few things Derrick Bye and I have been trying. Brownstown went out on a limb for this race when a lot of other promoters would have canceled, the track was in great condition for the feature and it gave us the chance to put on a show for these hard core fans that came out in the chilly weather.” Ballou commented.

Ballou continued on to thank all involved sponsors: Don Ott Racing Engines, MAXIM Chassis, Indy Race Parts, Hoosier Tire, MPHG Promotions, Lucas Oil Racing Products, Hinchman Racewear, Butler Built Seats, Hooker Harness, Keizer Wheels, Infinity Shocks, Manvel Motorsports, Deaton’s Waterfront Services, Alloy Wheel Repair and Blakesley Auto.

Next scheduled race for the team is April 4, 2015 with the USAC National Sprint Cars at Lawrenceburg, IN.

STEVIE SUSSEX HITS LAS VEGAS JACKPOT AT “SIN CITY SHOWDOWN”

VEGAS, NV – MARCH 8, 2015… Taking the lead from Hunter Schuerenberg on lap twenty-two, Tempe, Arizona’s Stevie Sussex held off all challengers to score the feature win at The Dirt Track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. With the $2,500 FVP “4th Annual Sin City Showdown” triumph, Sussex holds a slim lead in the USAC

Now faced with a clear track, Stevie was not to be denied on this night and stormed to 30-lap victory. The USAC SouthWest regular will return to action on March 28th’s “Hank Arnold Memorial” at Canyon Speedway Park in Peoria, Arizona.

BALLOU OPENS 2015 “WINTER DIRT GAMES VI” WIN

Florida…….Robert Ballou opened the 2015 AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship much the way he ended last season, as he fended off 2014 series champion Brady Bacon and drove away for the opening night win in “Winter Dirt Games VI.” The Rocklin, California hit double-digits in career wins as he took the Ballou Motorsports – Blakesley

Auto #12 Maxim/Ott to a 2.165-second victory.

“I felt like this place owed me one after losing one with a flat tire a couple years back. We kept our deal together, and Derrick Bye kept working hard to keep this momentum rolling. We’re working with the same car that won Oval Nationals to end last year. I knew we were in a tough spot as we hit traffic, and Bacon can get off the bottom so well here. But we battled back and got by him, and that’s a great feeling,” Ballou said.

Ballou began from the pole and led early over Justin Grant & Jon Stanbrough, as Bacon battled from row three after setting the ProSource “Fast Time Award” to open the night. Bacon tracked down Ballou as he encountered slower cars on lap ten, and Bacon snuck past him to the lead on lap 12.

Ballou countered, though, and swept back past Bacon down the backstretch, holding him off as they came to complete lap 14. A lap later, Kyle Cummins stopped to bring the race’s only caution.

Ballou was unmatched after the restart, as Chase Stockon, who had just entered the top-five after falling back early in the race, began to march up on the high side. He caught Bacon and slid past into turn-one to take the second spot. In the final laps, Ballou again caught traffic but Stockon could only bite a small chunk out of his margin.

Stockon came home a strong second in the Superior Tank & Trailer – Crescent Electric Supply #32 DRC/Fisher.

“We have changed a lot of things since this time last year, and it felt good to get rolling on the top and go by some really good guys. Our program doesn’t get much credit when the track goes slick, so it’s satisfying to get rolling so well when the track got black. We have seen a lot of different conditions now on this track, and seem to do pretty well with all of them,” Stockon said.

Defending champion Bacon came home third in the Hoffman Auto Racing – Mean Green #69 Triple X/Williams Mopar.

“This is exactly the type of track we’ve struggled with the most, so tonight was good to get ourselves closer and be in contention for the win. I was better than Robert early in the race and got to him, but he was way better than us at the end. I finally moved up high after Chase got by me, and I was better up there, but it was too late to get anything going. We’re happy with the progress we’ve made,” Bacon said.

Jon Stanbrough opened up his venture of starting his own team with a strong fourth-place finish aboard the MP Environmental Services – AED Motorsports Products #81 Spike/J&D, while Grant rounded out the top-five in the Mark Hery Motorsports – Dick’s Paint & Body #40 DRC/Claxton.

Bryan Clauson overcame obstacles in the heat to transfer from the Semi-Feature in the SST Motorsports #41 back-up car before going from 21st to 9th in the feature, earning the ProSource “Hard Charger Award.”

BERNAL GOES WIRE-TO-WIRE IN $4,000 CANYON VICTORY
By Lance Jennings

PEORIA, AZ – JANUARY 26, 2015… Leading all 30-laps, Ryan Bernal of Hollister, California backed up Saturday’s dramatic victory to claim his second straight win of the “E&K Winter Challenge.” For Bernal, the $4,000 triumph at Kevin Montgomery’s Canyon Speedway Park was his fourth career USAC SouthWest

ture win. “The People’s Champion” Dave Darland, “Chargin” Charles Davis Jr., Brady Bacon, and R.J. Johnson followed Ryan to the checkered flags.

Piloting the Mike Phulps owned #56 Tri-L Mandarin Racing / Core Power ART, Ryan Bernal started his evening by taking third in his heat race. Ranking fifth in passing points, the 2-time USAC Western Classic Champion grabbed the lead from his outside front-row starting spot and was not to be denied. Ryan has climbed to fifth in the Winter Challenge standings as the mini-series resumes Friday at Tucson’s USA Raceway.

For the second race in a row, Lincoln, Indiana’s “The People’s Champion” Dave Darland has scored a second place finish. Racing Mike Martin’s ‪#‎16B‬Ultimate Offroad / Sherwin-Williams Maxim, Darland earned his first heat race victory of the Winter Challenge and was the night’s high point driver. Starting sixth in the feature, Dave took advantage of a late race bobble by Davis to take the runner-up spot. By virtue of his strong performances, the veteran driver sits atop the Winter Challenge points heading to Tucson.

“Chargin” Charles Davis Jr. of Buckeye looked to have second well in hand until slipping to third in the closing laps. Driving the Massey Motorsports’ #50 RSS Industries / MP Environmental RSS, Davis placed third in his heat race and ranked sixth in the nightly passing points. The five-time Arizona Champion is currently fourth in the mini-series point chase and will be looking to move up the standings with a win at USA Raceway.

Broken Arrow, Oklahoma’s Brady Bacon stormed to fourth at Canyon Speedway Park after starting eighth. Piloting Keith Ford’s #73 Berry Pack / King Racing Products Spike, Bacon ran fourth in his heat race and seated the USAC National Champion eighth in passing points. When the Winter Challenge resumes in Tucson, the opening night winner is second in the standings and ten points behind Darland.

R.J. Johnson of Phoenix claimed fifth in the 30-lap main event. Racing Bobby Martin’s #51 Weiler Farms / Pecon Builders Maxim, Johnson was second to Dalten Gabbard in his heat race, ranking the 2-time USAC SouthWest Champion fourth in passing points. The second generation driver sits third in the Winter Challenge points and will be looking to sweep the Friday and Saturday features at Tucson.

After battling engine problems and arriving late to Canyon Speedway Park, Tempe’s Stevie Sussex earned his second Winter Challenge “Hard Charger / Best Passing Job” honors. Charging to an eighth place finish after starting thirteenth, the pilot of Mike Burkhart’s ‪#‎21AZ‬ Stratis Construction / Westin Diversified RSS ranks eighth in the mini-series. The young driver hopes to have solved all of his mechanical woes and battle for the checkered flags at USA Raceway.

Dalten Gabbard of Glendale raced to victory in the program’s second 8-lap heat race. Driving the family owned #77 BG Chemicals / AZ Heat Trucking Maxim, Gabbard placed second in the nightly passing points and claimed sixth in the main event. Dalten will have his sights on adding the winning trophy from Tucson to his collection.

After an open practice session on Thursday, the USAC Southwest and West Coast Sprint Cars will return to action on Friday, January 30th, at Tucson’s USA Raceway. Round #4 of the “E&K Winter Challenge” will also feature IMCA Modifieds, Stock Cars, X-Mods, and Dwarf Cars. Located at 4300 E.
