Jenna Shotz

PORT ROYAL, PENNSYLVANIA (April 21st, 2018)-

The Capitol Renegade United Racing Club 360 Sprint Cars had their official points opener on Saturday, April 21st at the Port Royal Speedway as part of their “Open Wheel Madness” show.

There were 29 URC 360 sprints signed in for the event. The club ran three heat races, with Brock

Starks, and Mark Smith taking home heat race wins.

The URC feature was the last event of the night, leaving the class with a smooth, fast surface with two fast grooves. Lucas Wolfe, who started on the pole, shot ahead early, catching the tail of the field quickly.

As he maneuvered through lapped traffic, Trey Starks and Mark Smith were able to catch up and give Wolfe a run for his money. The last two laps kept the crowd on the edge of their seats as Smith caught up to Wolfe and gave him everything he had. It was a photo finish at the line for Wolfe and Smith, but it was Wolfe who took home the checkered flag with a 0.004 second lead at the transponder loop.

The United Racing Club will move north for their next stop at the Orange County Fair Speedway in Middletown, New York.

Courtney’s USAC/Kokomo GP victory!

style=”font-weight: 400;”>COURTNEY CLAIMS REDEMPTION ON KOKOMO GP NIGHT ONE

By: Richie Murray – USAC Media

Kokomo, Indiana………Waiting for redemption is a challenge.  That’s just what Tyler Courtney faced Friday at Kokomo Speedway on night one of the “Kokomo Grand Prix,” featuring the USAC P1 Insurance Midget National Championship.

One month after missing the

he season-opener at the Southern Illinois Center in Du Quoin, Ill., Courtney was champing at the bit to return to what everyone has become accustomed to at Kokomo since August of last year by getting back to victory lane.

Courtney overcame an appetizing see-saw battle for the lead with the driver who became the star of Du Quoin last month, Logan Seavey.  With one final slider to close the door, an avoidance of lapped traffic mayhem and a late-race restart, Courtney overcame all those obstacles to come through with his fourth-career series win and first of the season.  It’s a long way, figuratively and literally, from the lonely sideline he stood on in the most recent race.

“It was frustrating having to wait a month,” Courtney begins.  “You just have to take those nights.  Unfortunately, you’re going to have those and just hope that everyone else has a night like that at some point, but you have to come back and rebound as best you can.  There hasn’t been any racing lately, so we couldn’t do anything.  Our motto is ‘you’re only as good as your last race,’ so you don’t want to end on missing the show.  “We tried to maximize points tonight, but just came up short in qualifying there.  We were really good in the feature and Tim (Clauson) gave me a really good racecar.  I think we definitely rebounded and showed that we’re still in contention for this thing for the rest of the year.”

Jamie Ball Sizzles In Series Opener!

Ball from Knoxville, Iowa was on the ball tonight as his car was dialed in from start to finish. He lead every lap of the A feature after starting on the pole.

“We had a great car from start to finish. We got out into hot laps and it just seemed too easy. The 3 races

ve ran with the Lucas Oil ASCS Series, is the reason we won tonight. We struggled with intensity a little bit and to go to the top here at I-80, but the national tour guys have shown me that you have to go as hard as you can from start to finish and it’s just nice to get the win. At Knoxville, I’ve typically been the guy that likes running the bottom a little bit but the cushion has been the way to go for me. I’ve been more consistent and faster up there and tonight I was just good from start to finish and I’m just glad to get the win.”

Back to Back Powri Midget Opener! Sweeps the Sunshine Challenge!

FL – After snagging the opening night of the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League’s inaugural Sunshine State Midget Challenge at Bubba Raceway Park, Kevin Thomas, Jr. picked up where he left off, leading all 30 laps of the main event. This was Thomas, Jr.’s third victory with the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League

driving for the Petry Excavating team!

On the opening lap, Thomas, Jr. immediately took command. With one lap complete, the red was displayed for Sam Johnson who made contact with the wall exiting turn four and got upside down. Johnson was alright, but done for the night. Returning to racing, Thomas, Jr. checked out as Tanner Thorson worked to keep up.

On lap 20 the action slowed as Presley Truedson came to a stop. With plenty of lap traffic between himself and the rest of the field, Thomas, Jr. had a moment of breathing room before the caution came back out on lap 21 for Michelle Decker with front-end damage in turn two. With nine laps to go, Thomas, Jr. checked out and never gave Thorson a chance to challenge him. Zach Daum rounded out the podium, while Chad Boat took fourth, followed by Ryan Robinson.

“For us to be able to do what we did is pretty remarkable for our team,” commented Kevin Thomas, Jr. “This is basically the first two races I’ve ran for them. I ran Turkey Night last year, but different package all together. Like I said yesterday, for these midget motors to hold up as fast as were going around here, hat’s off to Toyota and Speedway Engines Development. This is pretty cool. I haven’t won that many midget races, but it looks like we’re turning into a pretty good team.”

Chad Kemenah picked up his 34th career All Star victory but the defending series champion was very quick to thank his car owner, sponsors and everyone that helps with the team.
