Wolrd of oultaws and more for Dietrich,

won his fifth World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series victory Tuesday night in the Series’ debut at the 3/8-mile Bridgeport Speedway. To claim it, he fended off attacks by David Gravel, Carson Macedo and 10-time Series champion Donny Schatz – who even stole the lead from him late in the race.

“It was

retty nerve racking,” Dietrich said after the 35-lap Feature.

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (June 24, 2019) – It was quite the nine-day campaign for Gettysburg, Pennsylvania’s Danny Dietrich, not only entering action on home dirt in Central Pennsylvania, but also making the trip to the Buckeye State to join the All Star Circuit of Champions during Ohio Sprint Speedweek.

With Mother Nature causing some issues along the way, Dietrich ended his nine-day campaign with six main event starts, two of which resulting in victories. ‘Double-D’ secured wins at Lincoln Speedway on Saturday, June 15, as well as at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, June 21. The pair of wins bumped Dietrich’s season win total to ten, officially equalling his 2018 win total.

Weekend Sweep! WOO & ACSC!!!!

before Logan Schuchart claimed his third World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series win of the season, he could feel defeat breathing down his neck.

To it, he said, not today. Even with few options to stop it.

Life was close to leaving his right rear tire – a used tire from last year. It

nevitable. He claimed the lead with the assist of several drivers blowing a tire during the second night of the $15,000-to-win United Rentals Patriot Nationals at The Dirt Track at Charlotte on Saturday.

That caused Schuchart’s right foot to become wary of the throttle in the closing laps of the Feature.

“I was trying to be kind of conservative and not spin the tires, not run it into the corner very hard, try to not wear the tire very much,” Schuchart said.

A second too long on the throttle or off it handed defeat the win.

That was not an option, though. He had something to lose. The top four in points blew a tire with a handful of laps to go, giving Schuchart the opportunity for a healthy points gain.

Behind him, though, defeat had nothing to lose. Australian James McFadden, running just his second race in the No. 9 Kasey Kahne Racing car, is only driving the car until an injured Kahne is ready to return. Points are of no concern. He’s there to win at no cost.

Sam15.com takes Lake of the ozarks.

Dominating one week ago in Michigan, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. carried that momentum into Missouri for his third win in as many races with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network coming at Lake Ozark Speedway on Saturday night.

“Hats off to my guys. They did a hell of a job tonight, just like they’ve been doing all year long. That’s three in a row and we’re going to keep on going. Lock-in cars or not, we’re going to try to get it done tomorrow night,” commented Hafertepe, who has taken command of the National Tour point standings by 14 markers.

Mean Green and USAC!!!

Indiana (April 12, 2019)………Following a sluggish start to the season in Ocala, Fla. in the first three races of the year, Brady Bacon made doubly sure he saw the checkered flag in Friday night’s “Larry Rice Classic” USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car feature at Bloomington Speedway.

WOO Win at Devils Bowl!!!

the Shark Racing Team rolled into the famed Devil’s Bowl Speedway in Mesquite Texas Friday night, there was a buzz of excitement surrounding the team. Logan had shown great speed in Arizona and Jake was finding his marks during qualifying, and the team knows that Devil’s bowl is a place they have been strong at

would be strong once again, as Logan Schuchart would lay down a lap of just 13.792 seconds placing him 3rd overall and Jacob Allen would be nipping at his heels with a lap time of 13.879 placing him 4th overall in single-car qualifications.

Those lap times placed each driver on the front row of their heat races. Jacob would take full advantage of an outside of the front row starting position and out duel Kraig Kinser for the Heat Race win. This race would deliver a generational flashback to veteran fans of the sport, and it was uniquely fun watching an Allen and Kinser battling for a win at the famed half-mile.

Logan Schuchart would roll from pole position in heat race number 3, but the top side prevailed at the drop of the green flag, and Carson Macedo would go on to take the top spot and Logan would roll under the checkered flag in the second position, placing both Shark Racing Machines in the DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash!

The drivers draw for starting positions for the dash and Logan would draw the two spot while Jacob drew the three-spot. While this is exciting for the team, you can also imagine some butterflies come when your cars are racing that close together, that deep into the night, and this was shaping up to be both fun and a nerve-racking night for the Drydene Shark Racing Team.

When the green flag dropped on the DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash Kraig Kinser would jump out to the advantage, and Jacob Allen would also flex his muscle working his way past teammate Logan Schuchart for the runner up position. Jacob would bring it home in second place, and Logan would follow in third, putting both Shark Racing machines on the front row of the four wide!

As the crew began to finish up final preparations for the A-Main event the World of Outlaws officials would sound the horn for stagging, and it was now time for the 25 lap shootout around the famed half mile. And for the second time this season while Johnny Gibson delivered the greatest call in all of motorsport, it would be a pair of sharks under the fireworks leading the way in the four-wide salute to the fans!

When the formation breaks lose the level of excitement ratchets up as the A-Main is set to go green. And at the drop of the green flag, Jacob Allen got a little bit wide and momentarily fell back to fourth place, but the Newmans Engine powerplant would show its worth and Jacob sailed around the top side of one and two regaining the second position. Logan would fall into a battle with Daryn Pittman who showed he would be a force to reckon with before the night was over.

During the next three laps, you could have cued up the Jaws theme song as Allen was running down Kinser and it was just a matter of time until Allen made his move for the lead around the top side of the Devil’s Bowl Speedway. At the halfway point Jacob had a comfortable lead but was entering lap traffic, and Logan Schuchart and Daryn Pittman both were closing in on the race leader. On lap thirteen in a bittersweet moment, Logan Schuchart turned under Jacob Allen in turns three and four and took over the top spot.

And just as quick as that happened Daryn Pittman found the rubber at the bottom of the racetrack and flew by both Jacob and Logan to take the top spot. Logan, however, remained calm got down into the rubber and when Daryn made one mistake, Logan was there to capitalize on it. On lap 17 Pittman evaded the rubber to make a move on a lap car, and that was the opening Logan needed. Schuchart executed the pass perfectly and would go on to prevail and grab his second win of the very young 2019 season! Jacob Allen would hold on to his very first podium finish of the season and deliver Team Dryden with their best team result to date.

WOO Win! Logan rolling!

– There was a moment when sprint car driver Logan Schuchart thought he was going to flip right off the track at the San Joaquin County Fairgrounds.

Not only did he manage to keep his tires down, the World of Outlaws driver won Saturday’s 30-lap FVP Platinum Battery Shootout in front of a host of the

l tour’s top names.

“We were pretty fast (here) last year so I was looking forward to coming back,” Schuchart told more than 7,000 fans from Victory Lane at the Stockton Dirt Track. “I’m very happy we were able to get the win this early in the season.”

Behind Schuchart was Placerville’s Brad Sweet, Tim Kaeding, Aaron Reutzal and D.J. Netto. Rounding out the top 10 were Rico Abreau, Carson Macedo, Donny Schatz, Cory Eliason and Sheldon Haudenschild.

Ice Breaker 30!!!

class=”speakable-p-2 p-text”>Lincoln Speedway tried five times, and failed five times, to hold its Icebreaker 30 sprint-car opener.

Sunday afternoon, March 10, the Pigeon Hills oval near Abbottstown finally got the first area race of 2019 into the record books.

Lucas Wolfe raced to the victory. Wolfe’s first Icebreaker victory was worth $4,000.

Kyle Bronson Makes History With World Championship Race 3-Peat

Bronson of Brandon, FL drove the Brandon Ford Rocket into history at Bubba Raceway Park on Saturday night with his unprecedented third straight Chevrolet Performance World Championship Race win for the Durrence Layne Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series. Bronson had to drive hard early and often to collect the $10,000 top prize.

Bronson charged from the

h starting spot to battle with the likes of Tyler Clem of Reddick, FL, Nick Hoffman of Mooresville, MC, and the defending Durrence Layne Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series National Champion Ashton Winger of Hampton, GA in a race that saw seven lead changes. Bronson camped out on the bottom groove of the track and used it as his path to victory.

LEARY LOGS FIRST WIN FOR NEW TEAM IN WINTER DIRT GAMES X FINALE F

wp:paragraph –>

y: Richie Murray – USAC Media

Ocala, Florida (February 16, 2019)………The first weekend with a new race team is normally a period when driver and team get accustomed to one another and learn on-the-fly how to win races together.

There were very few bumps in the road for

torsports throughout “Winter Dirt Games X,” which culminated Saturday night with the combo’s first USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car victory together at Bubba Raceway Park.

Leary was highly successful on the USAC trail in his own family car over the past several seasons.  This past offseason, Leary made the move to the Arizona-based team, bringing with him a familiar face to a new setting to make the transition as smooth as silk.

“The cool thing was Andy (Reinbold) brought me and (crew chief) Davey (Jones) on as a team since we had already been working together and we get along so well on and off the track,” Leary pointed out.  “I’m just learning this new racecar and this new engine package is quite a bit different than what I was running the past couple of years on our family car.  We did a lot of unique things to the racecar and it paid off for us down here in Florida.”

SUNSHINE DOUBLE-DIPS IN OCALA WITH 2ND STRAIGHT MIDGET VICTORY

wp:paragraph –>

By: Richie Murray – USAC Media

Ocala, Florida (February 9, 2019)………If Friday’s victory at Bubba Raceway Park was one small step toward a successful USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget season for Tyler Courtney, then Saturday night’s win was a giant leap toward what could be a banner year in the

olis, Indiana driver.

Courtney slid by Tucker Klaasmeyer with nine laps remaining in Saturday’s 30-lap “Winter Dirt Games X” feature, blasting to victory for the second time in as many nights on the 3/8-mile, D-shaped dirt track to become just the eighth driver to win the opening two USAC National Midget races of the season, joining Lee Kunzman (1972), Gary Bettenhausen (1975), Rich Vogler (1984-85), Dave Steele (2002), Brad Sweet (2010), Bryan Clauson (2011) and Rico Abreu (2014).

“It’s definitely a weight lifted off my shoulders to get the season started off on the right foot,” Courtney said. “We’ve got a great team here and the whole series is tough right now. It’s a lot of fun and it’s obviously the best way you can start. We’ve got awesome momentum going for our midget season right now as well as going into the start of the Sprint Car season next week.”

USAC SPRINT TITLE DEFENSE BEGINS FOR COURTNEY

wp:paragraph –>

USAC SPRINT TITLE DEFENSE BEGINS FOR COURTNEY By: Richie Murray – USAC Media Ocala, Florida (February 13, 2019)………It’s already been a dream beginning to 2019 for Tyler Courtney as he’s continued the roll of success following his 2018 USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car crown and into the start of the new season.

end, his fast start included back-to-back victories in the USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget openers at Bubba Raceway Park. Now the Indianapolis, Ind. driver embarks on a mission in his Clauson/Marshall/Newman Racing No. 7BC to duplicate the feat that only some of the very best in this sport can lay claim to as a repeat series champion beginning with February 14-15-16th’s “Winter Dirt Games X.” Parnelli Jones was the first to do the deed in 1961-62, followed by Sheldon Kinser (1981-82), Rick Hood (1984-85), Steve Butler (1986-88), Robbie Stanley (1991-93), Brian Tyler (1996-97), Levi Jones (2009-10-11) and Bryan Clauson (2012-13). Last year, Courtney had one of the top seasons in the history of the series with 11 victories, only the tenth driver to reach double-figures in USAC Sprint Car wins during a single year. If anything has been proven, it’s not to discount anything Courtney can accomplish with the streak of success he’s enjoying at the moment. It’s difficult to win one championship, let alone back-to-backers and put up the same numbers as the year before. However, it’s been duplicated before and will be again. While most of the consecutive championship-winning drivers saw their numbers go up on the backend of the back-to-back, Parnelli dropped from nine wins to four between 1961-62, yet still had enough mustard to relish the championship honors once again at season’s end. Twenty years later, meanwhile, Sheldon Kinser had a slight dip between his two in 1981-82, from seven to five. From thereon, the numbers, in most instances, picked up the following year with Rick Hood increasing from six to nine wins from 1984-85. Steve Butler was the first three-peat titlist in 1986-87-88, bouncing up from two to three to three victories again, respectively, in those years. Robbie Stanley became the next three-peater, staying relatively stagnant from two to one wins between 1991-92, but 1993 would prove to be his career-best year, winning five times en route to a series title. Brian Tyler had nowhere to go but up following a rare winless championship campaign in 1996, but in 1997, the talented driver would find victory lane on four occasions on his way to another championship. Levi Jones saw all ends of the championship-winning spectrum during his three-straight run from 2009-11, beginning with four in 2009, doubling it to eight in 2010, then back down to three in 2011. Even-keeled Bryan Clauson notched his second-straight in 2013 with seven scores, following a seven win season the prior year in 2012. But the main lesson here with those numbers is that championships are created in a myriad of manners. Winning is only one part of the recipe, along with qualifying up front, transferring through the heat, taking care of the equipment and finishing in the top-five, top-ten every chance you get. After all, the title race could come down to one single point somewhere along the line. Call it a case in example when Courtney and Kevin Thomas, Jr. racked up the same number of points throughout 40 races a season ago, only being decided on a tiebreaker in terms of number of feature wins. The USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car portion of “Winter Dirt Games X” begins this week. Pits open at 3pm Eastern each day at Ocala. Grandstands open at 5pm on Thursday/Friday and 4pm on Saturday. Cars hit the track for engine heat at 6:30pm Eastern on Thursday/Friday and at 5:30pm on Saturday. An open practice session will take place a day before the action starts from 7-10pm. All nights of racing from Ocala will be live on https://www.FloRacing.com/.

Justin Grant Unstoppable In Third Consecutive Vacuworx Qualifying Night Win

“This one was a lot of work. You know I’ve been really fortunate to win some decent races and most of them have been showing up and walking in at three o’clock in the afternoon with my helmet bag and jumping in the car and just doing that and going home. This one’s been … it started with a truck, trailer, and a credit card. And a lot of 12-, 14-hour days leading up to this, a ton of work. It just very validating that we could pull off a win. Those guys believed in me probably more than I did myself. But it’s like a bit of a weight lifted off … I can do that part of it too. Hopefully, we can keep it up,” commented Grant of his victory for RAMS Racing

Peter lack scores early down under!!!

2018. Archerfield Speedway
Austrian Toowoomba racer Peter Lack proved too good in round two of the East Coast Logistics Sprintcar Track Championship at Ausdeck Patios Archerfield Speedway on Saturday night (October 27), leading every circulation in the 30-lap feature race to defeat Allan Woods and Brent Kratzmann.

t Kratzmann. Having finished third in the opening round after leading early, a repeat of such a scenario never looked likely on this occasion as Lack rebuffed every overture from those who dared to venture forth in search of the lead. Opening round winner Lachlan McHugh was the early threat until he found himself losing touch with Lack, enabling Woods to take up the chase. There were a few occasions where Woods looked as though he might surge to the front, but Lack saw off every challenge to take the race and emerge as the only driver to finish on the podium in both completed rounds. McHugh found himself fourth at the chequer, with Luke Oldfield rounding out the first five. 

Sunshine take “Western world” 410!!!

style=”font-weight: 400;”>San Tan Valley, Arizona………Twenty-four hours prior to taking the green flag for Saturday night’s 51st “Western World Championships” finale at Arizona Speedway, Tyler Courtney was lamenting how he threw away a victory in lapped traffic.

It was a mistake the Indianapolis, Indiana driver expressed he couldn’t repeat when racing against competition that is at

ir game.

Twenty-four hours later, Courtney was standing in victory lane, reversing the spell that cast him in the throes of lapped traffic.  This time, it was he who capitalized in lapped traffic as he ran down Dave Darland with 13 laps remaining to win his 11th USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car feature of the season.

“I screwed myself with lapped cars last night and I was determined that I wasn’t going to do that again,” an adamant Courtney said.

Courtney started fifth on the field while, up front, fellow USAC National Sprint Car championship contender Chris Windom rocketed from his outside front row starting position to the lead past pole sitter Damion Gardner and quickly carved out a two-plus second advantage.

3 Time ASCS Champion rolls on Keizer wheels once again!!!

Hulbert – SAPULPA, Okla. (October 28, 2018) Adding a cherry to the top of his third consecutive championship, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. rode out of the John Christner Trucking Fall Fling with an extra $4,000 and his seventh victory over a stout field of 61 drivers at Creek County Speedway with the Lucas Oil American Sprint

Car Series presented by Sawblade.com.

Trailing Sean McClelland the first 33 laps, Hafertepe made the top of turns one and two work after several laps of only being able to close on the back bumper of the D&E Supply No. 22. Fighting back for the top spot, McClelland was not able to regain the position.

“There is nothing like racing your best friend for 40 laps. That was probably one of the funnest races I’ve driven in my entire life. Me and Sean have been friends for a long time and for us to race like that and have our friendship last like it has, it means a lot, then to win this deal and show everybody who deserves this championship. That’s what we set out to do tonight,” commented an emotional Sam Hafertepe, Jr.

Beating Sean on the initial start, the caution flew for Matt Covington who spun to a stop in the first turn.

With the No. 22 holding the lead on the restart, Hafertepe’s next attempt at the point came while working Lap 2, only to have his slide job negated by another caution. Pressuring McClelland on the restart, the Townline Variety No. 15h was not able to get the run as Sean slowly pulled away with traffic coming into play as the field worked past the tenth lap. Allowing Hafertepe to pull back in on McClelland, the No. 22 did not falter on the low line; using slower cars as picks to protect any run to the outside.

Taking their high-speed chess game into the mid-point of the A-Feature, Hafertepe pulled the trigger on Lap 23 to take the lead but had his advance quickly answered with Sean driving back around the No. 15h. Battling hard into slower traffic, the caution lights came on with 25 laps complete as Blake Hahn spun to a stop.

Getting away from Sam on the restart, Sean continued to roll the bottom as Hafertepe searched the middle and high line at both ends of Creek County Speedway. Building momentum as the leaders worked to Lap 30, Hafertepe took three runs at Sean McClelland with his run on Lap 34 off the turn-two cushion being the one that secured the lead. Quickly through traffic with the lead in hand, Sam opened his advantage to 3.582 seconds at the finish.

Holding off Seth Bergman on the final lap, Sean McClelland crossed second for his ninth career podium finish with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by Sawblade.com. Bergman third was followed by Jason Martin with Kyle Bellm making up the top five. Charging out of the first B-Feature, El Paso’s John Carney II raced through the field to sixth after starting 20th. Wayne Johnson in seventh had Blake Hahn recover from his caution to finish eight. Skylar Gee advanced six spots to ninth with roger Crockett tenth.

TMAC takes world 100 and $51,000!!!!

news.

ROSSBURG, Ohio – Earlier in the day Tim McCreadie didn’t think his car was good enough to win the World 100 at Eldora Speedway.

McCreadie and his team made the right adjustments and bounced back to win the 48th edition of the biggest race in dirt late model racing. McCreadie took the lead from Eldora Late

el point leader Devin Gilpin on lap 45 and drove away from the field following a restart with 16 laps to go for the $51,000 payday.

After having to watch several World 100’s from the grandstands after not making the race, McCreadie seemed to be in disbelief to be sitting in victory lane.

“I’ve sat up there up there with you guys for a bunch of these features, so to be down here is pretty amazing,” McCreadie told the large crowd in victory lane. “There are a lot of people that complain about funding, but we just shut our months and keep digging along with what we’ve got.”

Gilpin led a majority of the first half of the main event with pressure from Shane Clanton in second spot. As the race went on Clanton dropped back and found himself in a race with McCreadie for second. On lap 29 McCreadie used his momentum off turn four to take away the runner up spot and pull away down the backstretch.

After taking the runner up spot, McCreadie quickly closed on Gilpin for the lead as the caution flag appeared on lap 36 when Mike Marlar slowed in turn one. Gilpin pulled away during the restart as McCreadie and Jimmy Owens ran side by side for the second spot. McCreadie retained the position and started to chip away at Gilpin’s lead.

After moving around the race track to build up momentum, McCreadie got a run off turn four on lap 45 to drive by Gilpin for the lead. McCreadie pulled away from the rest of the field while Scott Bloomquist drove by Owens for third and started to put pressure on Gilpin for second. Bloomquist and Gilpin raced side by side several times, with Gilpin holding on to the runner-up spot through the mid stages of the event.

Owens was able to take advantage of Bloomquist’s inability to pass Gilpin and took back the third spot on lap 67. Owens then passed Gilpiin for second and started his pursuit of McCreadie for the lead. McCreadie built up a lead of more than five seconds while racing through traffic with 20 laps to go.

With 16 laps to go the final caution flag of the event appeared when Bobby Pierce slowed on the frontstretch. McCreadie chose the inside line for the double file restart and showed he was unfazed by the late race yellow flag by driving away from the field after the restart.

Owens and Dennis Erb Jr. swapped the second spot a couple of times in the late stages of the feature, but McCreadie would not be seriously challenged the remainder of the event to win his first career World 100 victory. Owens, Erb, Blomquist and Brandon Overton rounded out the top five.

In victory lane McCreadie was ready to celebrate with the masses back at his small pickup truck and trailer in the pit area and was quick to praise the work his team has put in.

“It’s amazing the effort my team puts in while I get to go home and be with my wife and two kids, it’s pretty cool. I really don’t know what to say, I’m normally not lost for words. To see all people here and see how excited they are. We’ll be down here for a while, so make sure you stop by.”

The finish:

Tim McCreadie, Jimmy Owens, Tyler Erb, Scott Bloomquist, Brandon Overton, Devin Gilpin, Josh Richards, Dale McDowell, Earl Pearson Jr., Kent Robinson, Chase Junghans, Shane Clanton, Kyle Bronson, Bobby Pierce, Ricky Thornton Jr., Devin Moran, Michael Chilton, Don O’Neal, Shanon Buckingham, Billy Moyer, Brandon Sheppard, Rod Conley, Jimmy Mars, Jonathan Davenport, Brian Birkhofer, Zack Dohm, Mike Marlar, Mason Zeigler, Brian Shirley, Chris Simpson.

Larry Wight banks $50,000 on Keizer Wheels!!!!!

Speedsport news.

OSWEGO, N.Y. – Long known for his wild charges around the outside that either ended in a win or a spectacular crash, Larry Wight turned the wick down a bit Sunday and was rewarded with a $50,000 victory in the Billy Whittaker Cars 200.

Wight’s Kevlar-powered brand new Bicknell led Stewart Friesen, Saturday small block winner Peter Britten, Billy Decker

ckers during the Super DIRT Week finale at Oswego Speedway in a race filled with three wide passes, multiple pit stops and wide variations in race strategy.

“This is huge,” said the elated winner. “The only thing close was qualifying for the Chili Bowl my first time there. This is the biggest modified race anywhere and makes your career.

“At the end, I had to keep telling myself, ‘Don’t be too conservative. That’s when Stewart Friesen passes everyone to steal his wins.’ Eric Kingsley was my spotter and he told me to go hard on the outside while it was there to get track position. Once we got to the top five, we just rode.

“Actually, I was surprised others pitted so early. These tires seal over very quickly here and guys who pit later just drive right by you. Our timing turned out to be perfect.”

As happy as Wight was, fast timer and race-long leader Jimmy Phelps was at the other end of the spectrum. He planned on running the race non-stop and led to lap 67, when Wight muscled his way by on a restart.

He got the lead back when Wight pitted and held off all comers until Wight again ran him down on lap 180. Then, with just three laps remaining, Phelps ran out of fuel and had to pit, dropping him to 22nd in the rundown.

Keith Flach, Gary Lindberg and Friesen ran behind Phelps early on as it soon became apparent that yellows would be the order of the day. All told, the caution flag waved some 16 times, allowing teams to pit for fuel and tires almost at will.

The first mass pitting came on a lap 57 caution, with contenders Erick Rudolph and Matt Sheppard going in, then leading the cars that hit pit road back through the field as others made later stops. Classic winning strategy on the Syracuse mile, the plan would come up short on the Oswego five-eighths-mile oval.

At the halfway point, the order was Phelps, Wight, Billy Dunn, Justin Haers, Chris Hile and Kenny Tremont Jr., none of whom had pitted, with a horde of refueled cars with new tires behind them. Wight dove for the pits on lap 123, when Danny Varin stopped to draw a yellow, with Friesen and a number of others following.

Phelps stayed out with Britten, who would pit a number of times before the end, behind him. Sheppard and Rudolph also made another stop on lap 136 along with Britten and by lap 150 the order had changed completely again. Phelps led Ryan Godown, Billy Decker and Tim Fuller, but Wight stood eighth and Friesen ninth, ready for a final charge.

The crowd held its collective breath as Britten charged around the outside three wide after another stop and Wight worked his way forward at a calmer pace, with a 10-car melee, the only major incident of the race, then coming on lap 170, precipitating a red flag.

Justin Haers, who had hit the turn two wall, got to turn three and went around with a flat, collecting a gaggle of cars in the process.  Most amazingly continued once order was restored, though the mid-pack order was shuffled.

When the green reappeared on lap 170, Godown began trying Phelps on the bottom while Wight went to his beloved outside groove once again and flew from sixth to third before the next yellow. That let him shoot down Godown on the restart and as the lap counter hit 179 he stood second with what Phelps the only driver ahead of him. The next time around he dove under Phelps in turn one and the 200 was his.

“I had better tires and plenty of fuel, so I knew I’d get him,” summed up the elated winner.

Godown also got by Phelps, only to have another yellow negate the pass while also giving Britten, now back to eighth, a shot at the lead pack cars. With action everywhere, Friesen took second from Godown as Britten shot around the outside only to have a car slow to draw another yellow with three to go.

Phelps then went pitside, putting Friesen second. Godown began smoking under yellow and dropped out as soon as the green reappeared and Britten, fifth on the restart, shot to third to set the final order.

“We got there but couldn’t do anything with Larry in four laps,” tipped Friesen.  “These tires are weird. They go like mad, then cool down under yellow and stop.

“It went through my mind early in the race to try and go non-stop like Jimmy but I’m not that patient.”

As for Britten, many thought he made one too many stops, giving up too much track position, but he disputed that, saying, “You never know the ideal strategy. We didn’t do one too many sets of tires, we just needed that last set a little earlier before the track took rubber.

“I needed another yellow to keep the field closed up, but the track also dusts up under yellow and gets slick for a lap or two. We just didn’t know how the track would change. Larry pitted at the exact right time so congrats to him.”

Former winner Billy Dunn led the second five, trailed by Rudolph, Mat Williamson, Max McLaughlin and Fuller.

Shane Golobic in the Wood 17W machine!

Golobic Parked it last night on the opening night of Fall Nationala   The Matt Wood machine sporting the Elk Grove Ford, Priority Aviation Keizer Aluminum Wheels colors to victory lane at Silver dollar Speedway.

Shane Golobic bested the field of 54 Winged Sprint Car entries to score the $3,000 victory in the 30 Lap Main Event.

he drop of the green flag Golobic grabbed the early lead from his Pole Position starting spot. On Lap 2 however, Tanner Thorson would make the move around the outside to take over the race lead. He would pull away and lead until about Lap 19 when Shane Golobic found a fast line on the bottom in Turns 1 & 2. He was able to get by Sean Becker and Tanner Thorson to go from third to first in two laps. Just when it looked as though Golobic had the race wrapped up, a yellow flag would wave on the final lap of the race. That would bunch the field up once again and give Tanner Thorson one last run at Golobic. On the restart with two to go Golobic went to protect the bottom of the racetrack. As he took the White Flag, Thorson was mounting one last charge. The two motored through the first set of corners and down the back stretch. Golobic dove to the bottom, Thorson let it all hang out on the top. At the line it was a drag race and Shane Golobic got the victory by just .151 seconds over Tanner Thorson. The win was the first for Shane Golobic since climbing behind the wheel of the Matt Wood owned, Elk Grove Ford #17W sprint car. Despite leading the most laps, Tanner Thorson would settle for second in the Tri-C Machine #3C. Dominic Scelzi made his return from a broken leg to round out the podium in the Third Position in the Scelzi Enterprises #41S. Sean Becker charged from 15th to finish in the 4th position. He was at one point up to the second spot and battling for the lead before a caution would fly. Brad Furr would round out the Top Five in fifth. It was good to see the red #2 back at the Silver Dollar Speedway.

Double down on the Eldora 4 Crown!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ohio — Tyler Courtney became only the 10thdriver in history to win 10 USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series features in a single season when he topped the sprint car portion of Saturday’s 37thannual 4-Crown Nationals at Eldora Speedway.

However, the ride to get there on this night was a tad turbulent early on as the

team ran into mechanical issues that forced them to swap out the engine for another bullet following qualifying.

It did the trick as Courtney walloped the competition in his heat race, then proceeded to decimate the field for much of the 30-lapper in his Clauson Marshall Newman Racing/Priority Aviation – Competition Suspension, Inc./Spike/Rider Chevy until having to hold off a late surge from C.J. Leary.

Courtney started from the pole, but it was 2007 4-Crown USAC sprint car winner Robert Ballou who eked into the lead from his outside front row starting spot to lead the opening lap with Leary and Courtney in tow.

Double Down on the Eldora 4 crown!!!!!!!!!!

id=”MIDGETS” class=”w3-container city”>

Tyler Courtney picked up right where he left the “4-Crown Nationals” stage one year ago, following up a walk-off homer in the Silver Crown race last year with a dominating performance in the USAC P1 Insurance National Midget event Saturday night at Eldora Speedway.

The Indianapolis, Ind. native set the tone early, recording quick

heat and then leading the final 16 laps to capture the victory worth $5000 in his Clauson-Marshall Racing/Driven 2 Save Lives – Indiana Donor Network/Spike/Stanton SR-11.

Courtney launched his assault from the outside of the third row and quickly cracked the whip as he moved up through the field to second behind teammate Justin Grant by the fifth lap and brought along a challenger with him in Spencer Bayston.

Courtney and Bayston exchanged sliders as they tussled for the runner-up spot, while Bayston, the reigning series champ and race winner, showed no rust and no hesitation in his return from a leg injury suffered in an August sprint car crash.

However, Bayston’s bid for a repeat win came to a crashing halt on the tenth lap as he was tucked in behind Courtney in turn one. On entry, Bayston tagged his right rear rubber against the outside wall and partook in a horrifying incident that mangled his Keith Kunz Motorsports/Curb-Agajanian ride. Bayston emerged from the mangled wreckage, but was transported to a local hospital for further evaluation.

On the ensuing restart, Courtney wasted no time, delivering a slider immediately into turn one past Grant. Grant retaliated and made a run back at Courtney as they battled side-by-side for the remainder of lap 10 before he tried his hand at returning the favor in turn one. Instead, Grant slid up the hill in turn two as he attempted to slide up in front of Courtney, but it wasn’t quite enough to slow down Courtney, who plucked out a straightaway lead down the stretch.

Nothing would interrupt Courtney in the waning laps as he powered away for a 4.8 second victory, the fifth of his career and second of the year in the series, over Grant, KSE Racing Products/Larry Rice High Performance Hard Charger Logan Seavey (from 13th), Kevin Thomas, Jr. and Tanner Carrick.

Courtney’s victory allowed the Clauson Marshall Racing bunch to break the stranglehold that the Keith Kunz Motorsports/Curb-Agajanian team had possessed coming into the event, winning six of the last seven and the last three-in-a-row.

“Tim (Clauson) and everybody at Clauson Marshall Racing gave me one heck of a car,” Courtney exclaimed in victory lane. “Anytime you get to win at Eldora, it’s special. To do it during 4-Crown is even cooler.”

Rico Abreu, the 2016 winner of the midget portion of the ‘4-Crown,’ was involved in an accident during hot laps that also included Chris Baue. The 2014 USAC National Midget champ from St. Helena, Calif. was evaluated at the Premier Health Infield Care Center at Eldora and transported to a local hospital for further evaluation.

HOWARD EARNS MORE THAN $25K!!!!

No. 357, has had his share of problems throughout the 2018 season on Saturday nights at Grandview Speedway, but the team never gave up. They continued to try different venues to put the Carroll Hine powered mount in Grandview’s Saturday night victory lane – a place he had not stood in during the regular season

ince August 20, 2016.

The table finally turned for the five-time point champion during the running of the 48th Annual Freedom 76-lap T.P. Trailers Modified feature – a race Howard previously won four times.

Starting fifth through the luck of the draw, in a field of 34 cars Howard battled with Ryan Godown, runner-up and leader for 16 laps prior to the 31st lap restart when Howard took the lead.

Dealing with heavy lap traffic numerous times, Howard changed lanes to weave through the cars and this allowed Godown to reel him in, but Godown couldn’t make the move to the front and ran second the rest of the way while having to deal with third-place finisher Craig Von Dohren in the later stages.

When things were all set and done Howard picked up his biggest win of the season for a payday of $25,000 plus lap money, $250 from TP Trailers, products from VP Fuel providing he met the necessary requirements plus the Dan’s Deli ½-way hoagie. A winner of the event in 1993, 1997, 1999 and 2011 plus now this year, Howard is now tied with Craig Von Dohren at five wins in the prestigious event.

Madden Rules Selinsgrove National Open

Pa. — The track was fast and the time was right for Chris “Smokey” Madden on Saturday night at the Selinsgrove Speedway for the 20th running of the Late Model National Open, as he picked up his eighth win of the World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series season.

Starting outside the front row, Madden took control

ol of the feature on lap one and never looked back, leading all 50 laps on his way to another $10,000 payday.

“It’s huge where we start [from] at these big places like that,” Madden said. “But we definitely had a good racecar, no doubt.”

Race track conditions were perfect, as there was no threat of rain (as there was the night before at Outlaw Speedway, which ended in a postponement). Three solid grooves of racing presented the fans in attendance with a great show that Madden himself approved of.

“I felt like the race track was wide enough to race, kind of top-middle-bottom,” Madden said. “Our car was good enough to where we could maneuver around in all three lanes; very, very pleased with our racecar tonight.”

Devin Moran posted yet another podium finish in his post-rookie campaign with a strong second place. A big battle with Marlar ensued on a restart in the closing laps of the race, as a yellow came out with two laps remaining for fourth-place running Tyler Erb when he shredded a tire.

“I knew as long as I carried speed, it would be pretty tough for him to pass me,” Moran said. “The top was pretty good, so I just made sure I didn’t miss the top and it worked out for us.”

New Selinsgrove Speedway track record holder Mike Marlar crossed the line in third after the battle with Moran in the closing laps.

“Devin was leaving me a little bit of room under him getting in the corner,” Marlar said. “He just had that little bit of forward momentum off the corner… so he was actually pulling back ahead on the straightaway. It was fun to race with him.”

The finish:

Feature (50 Laps): 1. 44-Chris Madden [2][$10,000]; 2. 9-Devin Moran [4][$5,000]; 3. 157-Mike Marlar [3][$3,000]; 4. 7-Rick Eckert [7][$2,500]; 5. 2J-Jeff Rine [17][$2,000]; 6. Of-Coleby Frye [5][$1,700]; 7. 54-David Breazeale [9][$1,400]; 8. 18c-Chase Junghans [12][$1,300]; 9. 76-Andy Haus [16][$1,200]; 10. 43a-Tyler Bare [19][$1,100]; 11. 119-Bryan Bernheisel [6][$1,050]; 12. 25-Shane Clanton [1][$1,000]; 13. 11-Austin Hubbard [11][$950]; 14. 4-Amanda Whaley [13][$900]; 15. 91-Tyler Erb [10][$850]; 16. 74-Randy Christine [14][$800]; 17. 2-Dan Stone [22][$770]; 18. B1-Brent Larson [23][$750]; 19. O6-Mike Lupfer [20][$730]; 20. 22-Brett Schadel [25][$700]; 21. 72-Jason Covert [18][$700]; 22. 1-Brandon Sheppard [8][$700]; 23. 151-Kyle Lear [24][$700]; 24. 24-Dylan Yoder [15][$700]; 25. 7r-Ross Robinson [21][$700]

Jac Haudenschild finds victory lane at Fremont Speedway!

Ohio – It’s been a very long time since “The Wild Child” Jac Haudenschild visited victory lane at Fremont Speedway. The 60-year-old hall-of-famer did just that Friday, Sept. 14 to open the 11th Annual Jim and Joanne Ford Classic on All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads Night.

Bacon Keeps Rolling With Hurtubise Classic Victory

align=”justify”>TERRE HAUTE, Ind. – It’s certainly been a whirlwind week-plus of highs for Brady Bacon.

Last Thursday, he picked up a victory worth $15,000 in the BC39 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. On Monday, he became a father for the third time with the birth of daughter, Linley. Friday

span>, he hit the jackpot once again, winning his second career Jim Hurtubise Classic at the Terre Haute Action Track.

“They say when it rains, it pours, and we needed some rain on our crops at home,” Bacon said. “This has been a good little stretch. For some reason, new kids bring a lot of wins it seems like. We’ve won two championships the year the last two kids were born, and now we got this one. We can win a lot of money from here to the end of the year with a lot of big paying races, so this is a good time to get momentum.”

Bacon rolled off fifth in his own Brady Bacon Racing/Fatheadz Eyewear – Tel-Star Technologies/Triple X/Rider Chevy. Pole sitter Shane Cottle set the pace into turn one on the opening lap, but it was outside front row starter C.J. Leary who won the race to turn three to grab the lead, where he’d remain for the first five circuits.

HAFERTEPE TOPS OSHWEKEN FIELD.

Huppunen and Sam Hafertepe Jr. led the field to the green flag for the Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Car A-Feature. The opening lap caused some chaos as Mack DeMan nearly spun in turn one while Shawn Sliter and Scott Burk did get turned around to bring out the first yellow.

On the complete restart, Hafertepe jumped

an early advantage over Huppunen while fourth-starting Dylan Westbrook quickly raced into second. Haferetepe of Rockwall, Texas, quickly caught traffic which slowed his pace and prevented him from growing his lead over Westbrook.

Still, Hafertepe found a way around each lapped car to keep his lead at 1.9 seconds at the halfway mark. With four laps to go, that gap narrowed to just over one second before the final caution with four laps remaining when Shawn Sliter stopped in turn three. The restart provided Hafertepe a clear track and saw him drive away to his fourth career Ohsweken win over Westbrook, Mikey Kruchka, Mack DeMan and Scott Kreutter.

$10,000 & a Jackson Nationals for Jack!!!

Minn. (Sept. 2, 2018) – Jack Dover is $10,000 richer after winning a hard-fought and ultra-competitive Midwest Power Equipment 360 Nationals presented by DeKalb/Asgrow main event on Sunday night at Jackson Motorplex.

Dover accumulated the most preliminary points the previous two nights and he won the dash on Sunday to garner the pole position for the

0-lap feature that wrapped up the event finale that was presented by Billion Buick GMC.

Dover led early with Terry McCarl in tow before the duo mixed it up for the top spot throughout the middle portion of the main event.

While Dover maintained the top spot, Kennedy stayed within striking distance as the top two drivers were separated by less than two tenths of a second when the white flag was waved. Dover held off the late challenge to garner his second win of the weekend during the marquee DeKalb/Asgrow presents the Midwest Power Series by GRP Motorsports, Midwest Sprint Touring Series and Upper Midwest Sprint Car Series sanctioned show.

Makes it Three in 2018 with Fourth Annual Camfield Memorial Win

Macon, IL – In a race that kept fans on the edge of their seat, Kevin Thomas, Jr. claimed his third win of 2018 with the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League, the Fourth Annual Rich Camfield Memorial. Thomas Jr.’s other two wins include his

POWRi’s Inaugural Sunshine State Midget Challenge in Florida.

Starting outside row three, Thomas, Jr. had his work cut out for him when the green flag flew as pole sitter Tanner Carrick set a blistering pace with Tyler Thomas and Zach Daum in tow. Enduring a series of cautions, Carrick maintained a health lead for a majority of the race all the way until heavy lap traffic with a handful of laps to go.

 

As battles through the field were thick, Thomas, Jr. caught Carrick and narrowly edged him for the lead after picking the better line, taking control with three to go. Winning by a couple car lengths, Thomas, Jr.’s Petry Motorsports Toyota-powered Spike edged Tanner Carrick with fellow Petry Motorsports teammate Jerry Coons, Jr. rounding out the podium. Tyler Thomas took fourth with Petry Motorsports’ Jason McDougal in fifth.

 

“That was awesome,” commented Kevin Thomas, Jr. “I’ve never actually got to run a feature here at Macon. They did a little bit of track work there and kind of dried it off and it made for a hell of a race. I’ve got to thank Bob Sargent for that, having the balls to come out there and do that and take a chance on the racetrack. It’s fun to be back out here in the Petry car. I think we’ve won three out of four races that we’ve been together. It’s really fun working with everybody and thanks to Scott Petry for letting me run this weekend. The state of Illinois has treated me well today.”
Ball bounces back at ASCS national venue.

Hulbert – WEBSTER CITY, Iowa (August 18, 2018) After a horrid Southern Iowa Sprint Week, Jamie Ball came to Hamilton County Speedway with something to prove. Working 25 perfect laps ahead of Johnny Herrera, the Check Magnet Motorsports No. 5j rolled into Victory Lane for the first time in 2018 with the Lucas Oil American

Sprint Car Series presented by Sawblade.com.

“This whole year has been so hard. With torn up equipment and some bad luck, and too, I put myself in some bad spots but after the Knoxville Nationals we had, to come back and rebound like this. We needed it and this just proves my guys are the best. They gave me a great car and not only that, we got another win for Chick Magnet Motorsports,” commented Jamie who is the 17th National Tour winner of the 2018 season.

Ball’s second career win with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by Sawblade.com, his Saturday night triumph is his first in full point paying National Tour competition.

McCreadie nabs $10,000 at Lucas North/south event

Lucas Oil Late Model Series (Union, KY) — Tim McCreadie broke through on Thursday night at Florence Speedway to win his first Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event of the season. McCreadie led all 50 laps, holding off Bobby Pierce in the final circuits to take the win in the Sunoco Race Fuels North/South

presented by Lucas Oil.

McCreadie, the reigning Sunoco Race Fuels North/South 100 Champion flashed across the line just 0.759 seconds ahead of Pierce. Nick Hoffman, Josh Richards and Scott Bloomquist rounded out the top five.

Pierce moved into second with nine laps to go, overtaking Hoffman who had held the position since the opening circuit. Pierce then tracked down McCreadie, but despite a last lap ditch effort to take the win, fell just short of victory. Hoffman, an open wheel modified standout, claimed his first-career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series podium finish.

McCreadie, who became the fourteenth different winner on the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series in 2018, saluted the fans in victory lane. “Its amazing how things can turnaround. We have kind of meandered around all year. I just haven’t driven it good enough this year. These guys have put together a great piece all year. We went back to the chassis and motor combination we ran last year, and it’s really paid off the last two nights. I took two weeks off and I was with my family, but the crew have been working their tails off in the downtime we had.”

“Friday night we were good, but we weren’t as good as we could have been, so we made some changes for Saturday night to get the car a little more balance, and it proved to be the right call. I could tell in our Hot Lap session we had the car to beat,” commented Sam.

style=”font-weight: 400;”>The roots of Tyler Courtney’s association with Lincoln Park Speedway run deep.  In fact, his grandparents, Mike and Verla Farrar, owned and operated the joint for nearly two decades between 1981 and 1996.

Courtney didn’t get to experience much of his family’s era at the helm of the 5/16-mile dirt oval since he

yke at the time.  But on Friday night, he was able to experience what it was like to own victory lane at Lincoln Park, leading the final eight laps, and taking advantage of late-race misfortune that befell race leader Kevin Thomas. Jr., to win the 4th annual “Bill Gardner Sprintacular.”

California Speed Week Captures 2 wins for Forsberg

style=”font-weight: 400;”>On Friday June 29th was the start of 6 nights of racing in 9 days with Andy pulling double duty one night.  On Friday June 29th Andy and the Forsberg Family #92 headed to Chico, CA for a 360 points show, Andy was 5th quick out of 18 cars, ran 3rd in his heat race

on the pole of the A main event.  Andy jumped to an early lead and for the first 15 laps left the pack but heavy lapped traffic would cause Andy some trouble and he would lose the lead. With laps winding down and the white flag flying Andy would try one last attempt coming off turn 4 on the high scary side to take the lead and the win, Andy passed the checkered timing loop in the lead with a 3 wide photo finish but with severe damage to the rear end and a flat left rear tire to get win #7 of the year.

     On Saturday June 30th Andy was in Placerville CA driving the F&F X1 for a SCCT race and the A&A Stepping Stone #92 410 for a King of the West show.  Andy was 8th quick out of 23 cars in the A&A Stepping Stone #92 410. Andy finished 3rd in his heat race and started 9th in the feature event. On lap 5 Andy jumped the cushion and bounced to a stop and would have to tag the rear of the field and was able to only get back up to a 15th place finish as the last 25 laps went non-stop.  With the SCCT portion of the night Andy was in the F&F X1, he set quick time in his group, won his heat race, won the dash to put him on the pole of the A main event, unfortunately the pole was not the place to be and by the end of lap 1 Andy was already back in 3rd place, he made some good charges for 2nd throughout the race but would end up with a 3rd place podium finish with the SCCT Series.

“It’s pretty cool to match the boss

s (Clint Boyer) and hopefully we’ll get several more,” expressed the soon-to-be 54-year-old Martinsville, Indiana driver. “Hats off to this Peak car- man it’s been pretty good the last couple nights. This whole team has worked their butts off. I get the glory, but it’s all because of them. It was three-wide there for awhile and that was pretty cool- I’m just glad to come out on top. Hopefully we can go get one at Muskingum tomorrow night for three-in-a-row. Last year there wasn’t much they could do here with all the rain, but it was smooth as glass tonight. I’m glad everyone came out and now can go home early on a Monday night.”

Wolf Takes 2 nights of speedweek!

Pa. – It was a war on wheels Sunday night at Selinsgrove Speedway to decide the 29th Annual PA Speedweek title for 410 sprint cars.

Danny Dietrich of Gettysburg needed to win the 30-lap Opperman/Bogar Memorial in order to clinch the title but with two laps to race Lucas Wolfe of Mechanicsburg ripped the win and

nd championship away after a thrilling wheel-to-wheel battle most of the race.

The $5,000 win was Wolfe’s fourth career at Selinsgrove and second of the 10-race PA Speedweek series.

Outside front row starter Danny Dietrich pulled ahead of polesitter Freddie Rahmer exiting turn two at the start of the 410 sprint car main event. By lap six, Dietrich began to encounter slower traffic, allowing Rahmer and fourth-place starter Lucas Wolfe to close in.

On the 14th circuit, Wolfe passed Rahmer for the runner up position and set his sites on Dietrich. The race’s only caution flag unfurled on lap 15, at the halfway point, when Trey Stark’s lost the handle in turns three and four. Starks was able to rejoin the race.

When the green flag waved again, a war on wheels unfolded the entire second half of the race between Dietrich and Wolfe. Wolfe tried repeatedly using the inside line to get by Dietrich as the duo race side by side and had the fans on their feet.

With eight laps remaining, third-place starter Blane Heimbach showed a lot of speed and reeled in the leaders to make it a three-car battle at the front of the pack. On lap 28, Wolfe made the winning pass using the inside lane off turn two. Dietrich continued to race in his shadow and made a last-ditch effort to take the lead back.

At the checkered flag, Wolfe was victorious by a mere .86 of a second over Dietrich. Heimbach finished a a close third, followed by Rahmer and 13th-place starter Jason Shultz.

 

Danny Dietrich Scores 3 wins in Sprint week!

without the benefit of winning even one of the races, Greg Hodnett captured his fifth PA Speedweek title, by two points ahead of Danny Dietrich.

Dietrich , the 2016 champ, rolled his keizers to a win at Lincoln Speedway both June 30 and July 2, along with July 7 at Port Royal Speedway. He also finished

hed second twice, at Port on July 4, and in Sunday’s finale at Selinsgrove, falling just short in his quest for a second title.

Three-time Speedweek champ Lucas Wolfe (2007, 2014, 2017) won a pair of races during Speedweek, taking the checkered flag at Port Royal and Selinsgrove on Keizer wheels.

CA SPEEDWEK CHAMPIONS DECIDED AT LEMOORE RACEWAY

CALIFORNIA (July 1, 2018) – The fourth annual California Speedweek decided its 2018 champions on Saturday night at Lemoore Raceway, with Jake Hagopian, Tyler Smith, and Dylan Bloomfield claiming the lucrative honors. Each driver won a large wooden bear trophy and a piece of the $18,000 points fund for the $54,000 week.

No championship win was

ore intense than that of Hagopian in the Super 600 division. Hagopian won both Dixon and Visalia rounds while 2015 Speedweek champion Michael Faccinto had won Delta Speedway in Stockton. The two veterans of Micro Sprint racing traded turns throughout the final night, with Hagopian winning Bakersfield Karting Experience qualifying while both drivers won their respective heat races. Hagopian was the highest point earner so far for the day but drew a fourth starting position just ahead of sixth starting Faccinto.

They entered the 30 lap featured separated by just one point, making the main event truly a head-to-head race with winner take all.

Joey Ancona nosed underneath pole sitter Heath Duinkerken for the lead in turn three to take the top spot on lap one. Faccinto looked inside Hagopian early on but Hagopian dove inside to block in turn one on lap three.

Ben Worth slid in between them to nullify the battle for a moment but then he jumped the cushion in turn one on lap five. Lapped traffic tightened the race for the lead as Ancona tried to maintain his significant lead.

Hagopian rolled the cushion through lapped traffic. He charged past Ancona on the outside to take the lead on lap 23.

Hagopian drove to his third $1000 California Speedweek victory and the $2000 championship. Ancona was second ahead of championship runner-up Faccinto in third. Worth and Raio Salmon rounded out the top-five. KJ Snow drove from 17th to eighth to win the Hoosier Tire Hard Charger.

Cole Bodine takes $5000 @ the Dance!

Bodine would run an absolutely flawless race.   he had to buy his time and take his lumps as faster cars would take him a few times on the top side.   Cole stuck with his game and ended up with a nice payday of $5000 for his efforts.

Sam Hafertepe, Jr. Dominates 47th Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup Opener

Hulbert – ALGER, Wash. (June 21, 2018) No driver has ever won the Jim Raper Memorial Dirt three years in a row, but Sam Hafertepe, Jr. is on the right path to do so as the Hills Racing No. 15h led start to finish to open the 47th Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup presented by

the Skagit Casino Resort.

“We were actually off tonight. Not far, but we’ve had better cars here over the past few years but to come out tonight and do what we did, and to get through lapped traffic, it was tough tonight,” explained Hafertepe of his fourth career Skagit Speedway victory with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by Sawblade.com. “With the track laying rubber on the bottom, it was tough for me to move off the top because we were so good up there but hats off to my guys. They’ve really worked hard this week.”

Bacon top opener of USAC Eastern Storm!

style=”font-weight: 400;”>Brady Bacon seems to have a flair for the dramatics every time he arrives at Grandview Speedway.

For the second-straight year, the two-time USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car champ ran down the race leader on lap 38 of 40.  Last year, C.J. Leary was the victim.  This time, the target was Kevin Thomas,

e hottest sprint car drivers in America at the moment.  No small task to tackle by any means.

Akin to a buzzer beater at the end of a stick and ball sport, Bacon saved his most memorable shot for the end, staying loyal to his guns on the bottom of the one-third mile dirt oval to win Thursday night’s “Eastern Storm” opener for the second consecutive year.

Late-race heroics are always a joy to witness from the grandstand.  And it’s certainly a joy to the one witnessing it through his own helmet visor as the Broken Arrow, Oklahoma native did – and he wouldn’t prefer it any other way.
