Mathieu Desjardins Claims First Super DIRTcar Series Win

Michelina Friss (November 4, 2022)

Next season, Mathieu Desjardins is set to take over the #37 Big Block from his teammate Paul St. Sauveur to run on the Super DIRTcar Series tour. If Friday night was a foreshadowing of what is to come, Desjardins has much to look forward to.

Coming into the second night of racing

ies at the World of Outlaws World Finals, Desjardins had only one previous Series Feature start in America – the night before at The Dirt Track at Charlotte. But the Yamaska, QC driver did not waste any time getting used to racing on foreign soil as he battled for 30 laps to bring home a prestigious World of Outlaws World Finals trophy.

Desjardins drew the Stock Car Steel Pole Award, putting him in the best seat for a potential $10,000 top prize in the 30-lap Feature. When the green flag dropped, Desjardin jumped out in front, holding the lead for the first 13 laps.

Defending Series champion Matt Sheppard, who is poised to win a ninth title on Saturday, crept to the inside of the Quebec native and put on the pressure. After several tight side-by-side battles around the turns with Desjardins riding high and Sheppard taking the inside line, the #9S was able to edge around the #37M and take the lead on Lap 13.

The Waterloo, NY driver commanded the field as he has done several times this season for the next several laps. But after surviving two restarts, his luck ran out after a third yellow flag dropped.

Before the green flag dropped again, Sheppard’s machine came to a rolling stop due to a mechanical issue. This cleared the way for Desjardins to move back into the lead. It also bumped Tim Fuller up to second, who had charged his way forward from 12th.

After Sheppard was assisted off the track, the remaining competitors were back to contending for the final 11 laps.

Desjardins and Fuller kept the battle enticing until the end, with Fuller staying within striking distance until they crossed the finish line. After a valiant attempt, it was not enough to overtake the #37M as he kept his lead to bring home a victory back north of the border.


Richie Murray – USAC Media.

Perris, California (November 4, 2022)………During a red flag period 10 laps into Friday night’s feature event at California’s Perris Auto Speedway, Robert Ballou was feeling confident.

Sitting third at the time, the Rocklin, Calif. native felt that he had a good enough car to, at least, run second.

With that said, he wasn’t

another Oval Nationals prelim victory was within the realm of possibility on this night.

In that particular moment, Ballou felt that then-race leader Kevin Thomas Jr. was the class of the field after checking out to a considerable lead in the early stages.

However, that’s why they run the races, and the balance of the 30-lap distance from that point forward ultimately painted a completely different picture in Ballou’s favor.

In fact, it was pure artistry from one of the best to ever do it on the USAC AMSOIL Sprintcar National Championship tour and, despite the earlier estimation, Ballou wasn’t going to go down without a fight.

“(CJ) Leary got under me one lap (with 10 laps to go), but I was too tight to run down there then,” Ballou explained. “I tried to get my shocks a little bit better to where I could hold it down around the bottom and not get tight. It was really tough, but then Brady (Bacon) shot right by me, and I’m like, the 69 isn’t getting by me tonight and I sat up in the seat.”

Running as deep as fourth with just 10 laps remaining, Ballou found a sudden burst that put him right back into the thick of the hunt. It came just as he foretold during the earlier stoppage, that he would be a player for the win once the fuel load began to burn off.

Ballou charged under Brady Bacon for third on the back straight with nine to go. One lap later, Ballou glided his way into second with a turn one slide past Emerson Axsom to put him within a full two seconds of Thomas who seemingly held a commanding lead with the sands in the hourglass collecting piling up.

Finding his way into his front-running position by utilizing the bottom side of the racetrack, Thomas cut a swath of land for his own use by entering turns one and three on the bottom, then letting his car sweep to the top at the exit of turns two and four.

But with two laps until the bell tolled for thee, Thomas faced a bout of traffic. Charging into turn one hot on the heels of the 24th place car of Chris Gansen, Thomas was forced to alter his line on the bottom, skating his ride up the track a tad earlier in the corner than he had all race long.

The loss of momentum for Thomas was all Ballou needed to dig his talons in on the low line and drive his way past on the back straight to rise to the top of the leaderboard once and for all and for good.

Ballou negotiated turns three and four splendidly, scraping the infield berm with his left front wheel along the way as he dipped under Gansen who cleared a courteous path for the frontrunners by swinging wide on the front straightaway just as the white flag was being presented.

Ballou, Thomas and now Leary entered the final lap separated by a single car length between each driver. Ballou gained some much obliged separation from Thomas on the backside of the half-mile dirt oval, carrying onward to a 0.632 second victory in his Ballou Motorsports/Suburban Subaru – Dragonfly Aviation – Berks Western Telecom/Triple X/Ott Chevy.


Alex Nieten (October 29, 2022)

Bakersfield, CA… If there’s a NARC Fujitsu General Sprint Car race at Kern County Raceway Park, Shane Golobic can be counted on the be at the front as much as you can count on the sun to rise in the east and set in the west.

On Saturday night, Golobic led all

the Fujistu Feature en route to his third series victory in five starts at the Bakersfield bullring. The other two attempts resulted in podiums, meaning Golobic owns an eye-popping 1.6 average finish in NARC competition at the facility. The Rocklin gasser’s trio of KCRP triumphs puts him atop the track’s NARC win list.

The victory also comes a week after Golobic claimed his third Trophy Cup championship. It’s been a good seven days for the driver of the Matt Wood Racing/NOS Energy Drink No. 17W.

“I love this place,” a jubilant Golobic said in victory lane. “I think the worst I’ve run is like second or third. I’ve got a few wins, so I always love coming down here. It makes the drive a little bit more worth it all the way from Rocklin. When you win, it definitely makes it a little bit easier.”

Golobic led the field to green courtesy of his win in the Sunnyvalley Bacon Dash with Corey Day alongside.

Danny Dietrich continues his championship reign on local 410 sprint circuit

Bryan Householder.

Danny Dietrich’s championship reign will continue.

Dietrich has retained his spot at the top of the Champion Racing Oil Central Pennsylvania Sprint Car Point Series presented by For Dietrich, the overall season-long title is his third in the last four years.

This time around, Dietrich had to sweat it out in the pit area as

410 race of the local outdoor dirt-track season wound down on Saturday at BAPS Motor Speedway in northern York County. Dietrich had advanced to a spot that would have assured him of the title and was trying for more when he tangled with Lucas Wolfe on a restart near the midpoint of the race.  Dietrich was done for the day.

Dietrich’s closest challenger for the season-long crown, Anthony Macri of Dillsburg, had to finish second to knock Dietrich from the series point lead after Dietrich exited the race. That is exactly where Macri ran for much of the race after losing the lead to Freddie Rahmer. Then, in the closing laps of the race, Macri slipped to fourth while fighting with lapped traffic.

The final margin of victory for Dietrich over Macri was seven points — 1,256-1,249.

Kyle Spence Claims Win and Ride in KKM Giveback Classic Championship

Kirk Elliott (October 21, 2022)

POWRi PR (Tulsa, OK) — Kyle Spence would flex his racing fortitude with the POWRi Outlaw Non-Wing Micro League on Saturday’s Eibach Championship Night of the Fourth Annual Keith Kunz Motorsports Giveback Classic presented by MPI to notch his second and perhaps biggest career league feature win to date, declaring “I

t I’d have the opportunity to drive a midget again so I’m going to take the ride” in the victory lane celebrations.

Entering a stout field of one-hundred-seventeen merged-field Championship Night competitors in the POWRi Outlaw Non-Wing Micro League at Port City Raceway would find Daison Pursley clock overall quick-time on prelim night one with a 10.327-second lap with Steven Snyder Jr, Daison Pursley, Frank Flud, Cannon Mcintosh, Kyle Spence, TJ Smith, Kris Carroll, and Kale Drake automatically locked in from preliminary night finishes.

Golobic Makes History at 2022 Trophy Cup

Alex Nieten (October 23, 2022)

TULARE, Calif. — An eventful final night of the 28th edition of Trophy Cup was headlined by Shane Golobic claiming his third championship in the coveted event.

The Fremont, Calif., native is one of the best to ever hail from California and his title further cemented his place in history. The trio

qualed him with Tim Kaeding and Jac Haudenschild for second most all time, just one behind Brent Kaeding’s record of four.

All three of Golobic’s wins have come at Thunderbowl Raceway, a record he now solely owns as no other driver has claimed three in Tulare since the Trophy Cup moved there in 2005.

Golobic’s first two Trophy Cup wins came in 2016 and ’17, and those were with the Keith Day No. 22 team. This year he wheeled the Matt Wood Racing No. 17w to the victory, and with his brother, Dustin, on the wrenches, the celebration was all the more special.

“It’s just chemistry,” Shane said of why the two work so well together. “You can’t fake that. It’s brother-to-brother. Our dynamic has changed a little bit lately. He’s got a big boy job during the week, but he shows up and puts all this effort in. I can’t thank him enough.”

In the feature, Golobic went in as the high point man and pieced together a memorable drive from 20th to third to seal the deal.

Matt Sheppard wins third Super DIRT Week finale for a $50,000 payday at Oswego

Dick O’Brien (October 9, 2022)

For the second time in his illustrious DIRTcar big-block modified career, Matt Sheppard has swept Super DIRT Week 2022 clean.

After qualifying on the pole Thursday and winning his heat event Friday, the Savannah driver completed his unbeaten week by winning Sunday afternoon’s 50th annual Billy

ars 200 finale at the Oswego Speedway and the $50,000 check that goes with it.

Sheppard scored his initial clean sweep on the New York Fairgrounds Mile back in 2017 and he also won on the NYS Mile back in 2005.

“The key to the race was the pit stop on the 97th lap,” said the winner “I had a left front tire going down and that caution period allowed me to take on tires and fuel and when I came out, we really started to roll.”

When the event started, Sheppard led the first forty-eight circuits on Oswego’s ⅝th-mile clay oval before pitting for the first time. Max McLaughlin then took over the lead wheeling a retro-painted modified numbered Z8 honoring his father Mike McLaughlin.

Max led through the 124th lap when Marc Johnson took over first. Sheppard began closing in on the Guilderland racer, but Johnson held his ground. Finally, Sheppard returned to the lead on 173rd lap. Johnson then began to fade and Mat Williamson moved into second.

Williamson, who was looking for his third straight win in this event, narrowly avoided losing some laps in an on-track tangle earlier. The St. Catharines, Ontario driver then began pressuring the leader, but Sheppard’s Bicknell modified kept picking up speed in the closing laps and he rolled to the $50,000 triumph.

Williamson ended up second, with McLaughlin third. His HBR racing teammate, Jimmy Phelps, was fourth and Marc Johnson faded to fifth at the finish. Tyler Dipple, Ryan Godown, Stewart Friesen, Tim Fuller and Justin Haers completed the top ten finishers.

Forty big-blocks started the feature grind and seventeen cars finished on the lead lap.

Late-race pass gives Jonathan Davenport his first Knoxville Late Model Nationals win

Dan Beaver (September 19, 2022)

Superman goes where he’s needed and with his cap flying stiffly behind him in the 18th running of the Knoxville Late Model Nationals, Jonathan Davenport scored a $50k win over Iowa’s Tyler Bruening on the half-mile Knoxville (Iowa) Raceway.

It was the ninth Lucas Oil Late Model win of the season in

art – a statistic that includes a remarkable six consecutive wins from July 24th through August 26th. Davenport also has four World of Outlaws Late Model victories and a half-dozen wins in other major series this season for a total of 21 overall.

Even with all that success, this was a bucket list win for man called Superman. It is his first at Knoxville – a track famed for spring car racing that is becoming a staple of late models as well.

Davenport led the 50-lap affair early, but gave it up to Bobby Pierce on Lap 9 as the field returned to green after a caution. Two laps later, Bruening commanded the top spot and held it for the next 37 laps.

In the closing laps, Bruening stretched his advantage to two seconds until Davenport found the high side. With Lap 45 in the books, Davenport closed the gap and was on Bruening’s back bumper by Lap 47. Davenport dove to the bottom groove in Turn 1, pulled alongside and took the lead on the following circuit, denying Bruening the first Lucas Oil Late Model win of his career.

“I wish I could have said that I was planning for that,” Davenport said in a press release. “I was just too tight there. I didn’t have the best race car by far. I made a mistake first in lapped traffic I thought I might get rolled on the outside and let Bobby [Pierce] around me so I chose the bottom and let Tyler around me.

“I was trying to race Earl [Pearson Jr.] as clean as I could there, but I knew I had to get by him. I got a big run on Tyler there one time getting into one. I could have blasted on him, but I knew this could be his first crown jewel, so I didn’t want to take it away from him like that.”

For Bruening, the disappointment was bitter. In 40 combined starts this season with the Outlaws and Lucas Oil, he’s earned seven top-10s, but the closest he came to winning was a pair of fourth-place results at River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, N.D. and Boone Speedway in his native Iowa.

“I needed two less laps I guess to hold him off,” Bruening said. “I don’t know. When you are out front for all those laps it’s pretty tough to move out of your line that’s worked the whole race.

“I didn’t know how close he was until it was too late there getting off of four. I didn’t know how high I could go if all the way up there would do it. It was fun to run up front. We just got beat by the best in the world right now.”

Brandon Sheppard scored his 25th top-five of the season and rounded out the podium.

Golobic Opens Gold Cup Weekend With Sprint Car Challenge Tour Victory

Calif. (September 6, 2022) — By Gary Thomas

Chico, CA…Fremont’s Shane Golobic has been as hot as any driver in California the last few weeks and added another victory on Wednesday night, by picking up the Sprint Car Challenge Tour sanctioned “Pacific Sprint Cup” at Silver Dollar Speedway.

Sharing victory lane with Golobic on Wednesday was San

rottle masher Shawn Jones, who earned his first Joe Hunt Magnetos Wingless Tour triumph of the season.

The 30-lap SCCT feature began with 15-year-old Chance Grasty jumping into the lead. The Suisun City youngster held a steady lead out front as the action was hot and heavy behind him. Elk Grove’s Kyle Larson had spun out on the original attempt and many eyes were turned his way, with the 2-time Gold Cup champ blasting his way through the field. Grasty led the first laps of his career with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour but when traffic came into play it gave Max Mittry and Golobic a chance to close.

On lap 13 Mittry carved his way past Grasty and brought Golobic along for second. The racing continued to keep fans on the edge of their seats with side-by-side action all through the field. Larson ended up cracking into the top-five on lap 20 as he found the high side to his liking. Golobic was also able to make his way by Mittry with 21 laps complete to snag the lead that he would never relinquish. The driver of the Matt Wood Racing/ NOS Energy Drink No. 17w accepted the checkered flag for his 11th career Sprint Car Challenge Tour win.

Larson continued his charge as the laps wound down and got past Mittry just before the finish to end up second. Mittry crossed the stripe in third to earn his first ever SCCT podium. Lincoln’s Tanner Carrick and Grasty rounded out the top-five. Completing the top-10 were Joel Myers Jr., Landon Brooks, Michael Faccinto, Pit Stop USA Hard Charger Tim Kaeding and Sean Becker.

Kyle Larson began the evening by earning the Bianchi Farms Fast Time Award by touring the bullring in 12.272 seconds. He went home with $800 total courtesy extra money from Joey and Joelle Carr.

Danny Dietrich sweeps Jack Gunn Memorial twin features at Williams Grove Speedway

Tyler Altmeyer

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (August 26, 2022) – A night to remember, indeed, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania’s Danny Dietrich performed the unthinkable Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, and beat the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 not only once, but twice, clean sweeping the annual Jack Gunn Memorial Twin 20’s

am for back-to-back $4,000 paydays.

Dietrich, now a four-time All Star winner in 2022 with his first two occurring during Ohio Sprint Speedweek, led all but four circuits of the combined 40-lap Tri-State Summer Swing presented by Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts contest, kicking things off with a wire-to-wire effort in the first feature, followed by a quick charge from sixth in the second feature, taking command over Lance Dewease on lap five.

Brent Marks, who finished second in each of the Jack Gunn Memorial showstoppers, did his best to spoil Dietrich’s clean sweep with a final corner move in the second main event, but Dietrich prevailed, driving back underneath the “Myerstown Missile” after Marks attempted a slider entering turn one. Traffic played a pivotal role in Marks’ final lap pursuit, creating a two-wide roadblock in front of “Double-D” that commenced with a handful remaining.

An invert was utilized to set the grid for the second 20-lap feature; Dietrich pulled a six following the first 20-lapper.

“I have a great car and a great team supported by great partners…that makes something like this possible,” said Danny Dietrich, driver of Gary Kauffman’s Weikert’s Livestock, Sandoe’s Fruit Market, Pace Performance, Big Cove Whitetail Trophy Hunts, Drop Of Ink Tattoo, Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC, Self Made Racing, No. 48 sprint car. “Just a great effort by everyone involved. Things got a little dicey there in the closing laps of the second feature, and when I saw Brent get underneath me, I thought ‘oh crap.’ Luckily, I was able to get the car turned back underneath and drive off the corner. It feels good to be back at The Grove. We haven’t been here since we raced with the Outlaws. Hopefully we can turn things around and do it again tomorrow at Lincoln.”

Dynamic Performance & crew on top!

to the team for the win @numidiadragway and  taking first place in the FWD Class !  We are back!


Aaron Reutzel Pockets $30,000 Knoxville 360 Nationals Prize!

Hulbert – KNOXVILLE, Iowa (August 6, 2022) Leading it all Saturday night at the 32nd annual 360 Knoxville Nationals presented by Great Southern Bank, 2015 Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour Champion, Aaron Reutzel took his potential earnings to the max with a $30,000 check going to the driver of the Ridge Development No. 8.

Aaron’s fourth

er 360 win at the Knoxville Raceway, the triumph is his second on the season with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network and 21st all-time.

“It was early, it wasn’t at the end. We were struggling,” commented Aaron of the car’s speed as the race went on.

“I knew someone was probably coming, but that’s how I wanted the race to play out. I just wanted to go green-to-checkered, so I could run in lapped traffic and try to hide a little bit.”

Jumping to the point through the first and second turns, Aaron quickly put distance on the field. Non-stop as traffic loomed near the race’s mid-point, Aaron was unphased as the race through the top five focused on Sam Hafertepe, Jr. Taking the green seventh, the five-time Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series National Tour Champion worked to third on Lap 14. Throwing the slide on Clint Garner, the pair tapped tires but were able to save and keep rolling.

Moving his line around the Knoxville Raceway, Sam began entering low and driving across the turns to the cushion to reel in Lynton Jeffrey. To second on Lap 16, Sam trailed Reutzel by 2.824-seconds.

Keeping his line the same as Aaron Reutzel worked the top at all points, Hafertepe closed a second over the next six laps. Down to under a second with four laps to run, Aaron had company as the pair raced to the white flag. Giving it a shot through turns one and two, the momentum wasn’t enough to deny Aaron Reutzel his just rewards.

Thanking sponsors and crew, Aaron made a point to thank his car owners, “I have to put all the attention on Brian and Lisa Ridge. This is a huge, huge, win for them and they deserve it giving me the opportunity to stay home and race the schedule that I want to race. It’s been a fun year for sure.”

Sam Hafertepe, Jr. in second, was joined on the podium by Clint Garner, who captured the spot with three laps to run. Lynton Jeffrey ended up fourth with Terry McCarl in fifth.

Sam Hafertepe, Jr. Triumphant In 360 Knoxville Nationals Opener!!

Hulbert – KNOXVILLE, Iowa (August 4, 2022) A slide for the lead, then working to the hub of the Knoxville Raceway, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. captured the opening night of the 32nd annual 360 Knoxville Nationals presented by Great Southern Bank.

The third time the driver of the Hills Racing Team No. 15h has stood in Victory

at the famed half-mile in 360cid competition, the win was Sam’s 60th with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.

“Tonight, we had a really good racecar, and the guys just kept working all night long. We weren’t good in Time Trials, we weren’t good in the Heat Race, but we turned the wick up in the Feature and really got going,” stated Hafertepe.

“I have to thank Miles Hill. Without him, none of these guys could be out here working for us, and this equipment we have it’s unbelievable.


became the “Million Dollar Man” Thursday night as Jonathan Davenport held off a late-race charge from Chris Madden and Tim McCreadie in a 101-lap feature at Eldora Speedway that paid $1,002,022 to win. Davenport now holds the distinction of winning the most lucrative late model race in history.

Beveridge Goes Back-to-Back!

Dennis Newlyn (February 13, 2023)

Dylan Beveridge proved to everyone at Perth Motorplex, Saturday, February 11 that last year’s national title win was not a fluke after he won his second Australian Formula 500 Championship in as many years.

Beveridge was strong all weekend. He entered night two second on points going into night two second on

Twenty five cars finished the race in what was an epic display of superb Formula 500s racing.

WOO at the Ozarks!!!

Schuchart won his second race of the 2020 World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series season in the same fashion he won his first – having never won at the track before, nor led a lap there.

On Friday night, that track was Lake Ozark Speedway. The Hanover, PA driver and his Shark Racing

dominated the night, leading all 30 laps en route to his 18th career Series win – tying Brad Doty for 28th on the all-time wins list. In February, he pulled off a similar feat to win at Volusia Speedway Park.<iframe width=”560″ height=”315″ src=”” frameborder=”0″ allow=”accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture” allowfullscreen></iframe>

USAC and the Historical Port City Raceway!!!

style=”font-weight: 400;”>Tulsa, Oklahoma (May 22, 2020)………It’s been quite awhile since Tyler Courtney and the USAC NOS Energy Drink Midget National Championship were last in competition – 76 nights to be exact.

A little rust here and a few cobwebs to knock out there, the quarantine period during the COVID-19 pandemic around the world has

y and everybody off their normal routines.

But what has become routine over the last several years is a Courtney feature victory and the defending champ once again nestled into that routine Friday night for his first series victory of the year in the inaugural Werco Manufacturing T-Town Midget Showdown presented by B & H Contractors at Port City Raceway in Tulsa, Okla.

While it wasn’t exactly a rough start to the season by any stretch for the Indianapolis, Ind. driver with a 4th, a 2nd and a 20th in his first three series starts, Courtney and the Clauson-Marshall Racing team dug deep during the time off to find that little bit of “extra” to propel them back to victory lane where they had resided eight times a year ago, including three of the first four, with the series.

“We made a few changes during quarantine and I think we found some stuff,” Courtney admitted after capturing the victory in his NOS Energy Drink Turbo – ZMax/Spike/Stanton SR-11x.  “I was a little rusty on the cushion there at the end of the race, and I need to get a little better at that.  I saw those guys coming on the bottom, but I was kind of committed to the top by that point.”

Courtney was referring to his late-race execution there, but first, he had to charge from the sixth starting position after establishing a track record earlier in the night during Fatheadz Eyewear/MSW Motorsports time trials, a lap of 9.444 seconds around the 1/8-mile dirt bullring, the first sub 10-second qualifying quick time lap in a USAC National Midget points race since John Andretti at the Toronto Skydome in 1993.

It was Courtney’s CMR teammate Cole Bodine who established the early lead from the pole after an early side-by-side scuttle with outside front starter Chris Windom.  Windom remained up top and eventually drove by on lap five for the race lead.

Courtney moved into the top-five on lap 10, passing second quickest qualifier Thomas Meseraull for the position.  Moments later, Meseraull’s bid for a frontrunning result came to an abrupt halt when he contacted Courtney’s rear bumper and slid to a stop.  Meseraull restarted and finished 13th.

Nearing midway, Courtney had closed in on a three-car tussle for second, which also involved Tanner Thorson and Buddy Kofoid.  On the 21st lap, Courtney emerged from the herd with the runner-up spot, although Windom still held a hefty lead of nearly two seconds ahead of him.

That advantage was erased on the following lap when 15th running Daison Pursley stopped at the top of turn four, thus bringing out the yellow flag and bunching up the field for the restart.  Courtney gripped low while Windom ran the top, but on the 25th lap, Windom’s slight stumble on the turn one curb gave Courtney the crack in the door he needed to get through as he jolted to the race lead.

Windom remained in touch with his former CMR teammate Courtney just prior to a yellow for first-time USAC starter Emerson Axsom who spun between turns three and four.

Following a restart with 10 to go, Windom ultimately recharged the figurative batteries and made his bid to overtake Courtney, successfully sliding past in turn two with eight laps remaining.  Courtney instantly ducked to the inside of Windom exiting turn two, and to Courtney’s left, both Logan Seavey and Thorson created two more lanes of space on the bottom to briefly make it four-wide for the lead.

Courtney escaped the jam and entered turn three on the bottom with the lead with Windom going topside back to second and Thorson and Seavey getting momentarily shuffled out.  Windom took one more run at Courtney in turn three to no avail just as the red flag flew on lap 34 when Hank Davis and Clinton Boyles made contact in turn one, sending Boyles flipping near the outside wall.  He was uninjured.

On the ensuing restart, Courtney utilized a quality start on the opening lap to carve out some distance between he and Windom.  A hard-charging Seavey, who started all the way back in 19th, picked his way to second past Windom on the bottom with four to go and tried to hunt down Courtney, but time was short his hourglass was out of sand.

The checkered flag was Courtney’s for the 14th time in his USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget career, tying him with Chuck Arnold, Jack Turner and Leroy Warriner for 49th all-time.

“It feels really good, especially being the first time back,” Courtney said.  “It’s cool to come to these races when your friends Xia Xianna and Brady (Bacon) are promoting it, and stepping up, especially in a hard time like this.  Thanks to them and Mike and Megan Eubanks who’ve done a hell of a job with this place.”

Courtney competed in a micro sprint in his only previous Port City racing experiences, but this marked his first visit in a midget at the track, and after Friday’s triumph, he’s looking for even more on Saturday night.

“Tomorrow’s going to be a tough one,” Courtney continued when speaking of Saturday’s night two of the T-Town Midget Showdown.  “All these guys are going to keep getting better, so you can’t slouch off.  Hats off to my whole team who’ve worked their tails off with nothing really to do; they haven’t backed down.”

Sutter, California’s Seavey made his debut in the Reinbold-Underwood Motorsports Midget a memorable one, driving from 19th to 2nd to earn Hard Charger honors courtesy of KSE Racing Products and Jerry Medlin in his AME Electrical Contracting – ZMax/Spike/Stanton SR-11x.

“We just had a heck of a racecar there,” Seavey exclaimed.  “I feel like we’ve struggled the past couple of days, but finally got the car gripped up to where I could drive through the slick and keep the car straight.  That’s really what you need on a track like this.”

“I feel so good,” the 2018 USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget champ stated.  “I really wish we could’ve gotten by Sunshine (Courtney) there.  He’s passed me a lot driving through the slick while I’m up there pounding the curb, and I was hoping we could reverse the roles tonight but didn’t quite get it done.  I needed to make a few better moves once I got into the top-five; I just wasn’t quite pouncing on the opportunities like I needed to.  That’s kind of what ended it for me once Sunshine got out to a little bit of a lead, I could close a little bit, but I knew there wasn’t enough to get all the way there.”

Windom (Canton, Ill.) led a race-high 20 laps, and after losing the lead with 16 laps remaining, came back with a strong second effort, although he fell to third at the conclusion after admitting to needing to “make a few less mistakes” in his Tucker-Boat Motorsports/NOS Energy Drink – Pristine Auction – K & C Drywall/Spike/Speedway Toyota.

“We got the lead and I started hitting the curb a little bit and getting tight on entry and Tyler got by us,” Windom recalled.  “We had a hell of a race back to the lead, but (Courtney) was just a little better at the end than I was.  Obviously, we’ve got a really fast racecar and these guys are at the top of their game.”

Timms doubled down!!!

Timms doubled down last night at Creek County Speedway in A-Class and Nonwing with Lucas Oil National Open Wheel 600 Series.  We look forward to this youngster bringing in alot of wins!

Thorson tops Shamrock!!

style=”font-weight: 400;”>Du Quoin, Ill. (March 7, 2020)………As Tanner Thorson recollected over his first three starts of the 2020 USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget season, one of his first thoughts was, “we should be three for three.”

Instead, the 2016 series champ has had to settle for winning two out of three on the

following Saturday night’s Shamrock Classic victory at the Southern Illinois Center.  And like a common refrain from a song you might’ve heard in the past, ‘two out of three ain’t bad.’

After capturing a season opening victory in Ocala during February, then dominating the second night at Ocala until an engine issue stifled a surefire victory, Thorson entered the Shamrock Classic with a plan to return to his winning ways, but that plan and the confidence went slightly askew early in the evening.

“After the qualifier, I thought I was about to load this thing up and get out of here,” Thorson admitted.  “This place has never been really too good to me.”

Yet, Thorson and team remained tactful and honed in on the details that allowed him to drive from his 15th starting spot to victory lane, the furthest back in the field a winning driver has started with the series since himself, also from 15th at Lincoln Park Speedway in Putnamville, Ind. in June of 2019.

“We just kept at it all night,” Thorson said.  “I was really fast the last time I was here and we kind of brought the same set up here, but it didn’t work.  We just had to change some things and go through some stuff and it paid off.”

In doing so, Thorson kept the streak intact of consecutive different USAC Midget winners to emerge at the Southern Illinois Center to nine and the run of different Shamrock Classic victors to five years running.

Danny Dietrich Tops Lincoln Speedway’s Ice Breaker 30

class=”gnt_ar_b_p”>Danny Dietrich raced to his second career Ice Breaker 30 410 sprint victory in front of a standing-room-only crowd on Saturday afternoon at Lincoln Speedway.

Dietrich’s $4,000 win was his first of the season and the 47th Lincoln win of his career.

Second-starting Ryan Smith grabbed the early race lead from pole-sitter Glenndon Forsythe, of York. With Smith

arly lead, Dietrich worked on Forsythe for second from his third-starting spot. Once by Forsythe, Dietrich set chase for Smith and took over the top spot on the 12th lap. Three laps later, Smith spun into the first-turn wall, ending his day.

From that point on, Dietrich held the lead at the Pigeon Hill oval, although at times it was a slim one. Local World of Outlaws driver, Hanover’s Logan Schuchart, won a spirited battle with Freddie Rahmer for the second spot. Schuchart had started fourth, while Rahmer started eighth.

Ocala, Florida (February 15, 2020)………Brady Bacon took no chances on his cool down lap following Saturday night’s USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Winter Dirt Games XI victory at Bubba Raceway Park.

Following a mishap during his heat

w him drop from a surefire win to having to transfer through the semi in order to qualify for the feature, Bacon was once again the class of the field, driving from 9th to 1st to capture his second consecutive series main event win in as many nights at the 3/8-mile D-shaped dirt track in Ocala, Fla.

All the meanwhile, the Broken Arrow, Oklahoma native was adamant to make sure a victory wasn’t going to slip through his fingers twice in one night.

“We made an extra lap in the feature.  I wasn’t going to stop until we knew it was over,” Bacon exclaimed.

For you see, earlier Saturday evening during his heat race, Bacon was fully in charge, dominating the preliminary event until the final lap when his car began to slow dramatically.  Was something amiss mechanically with his ride, many pondered.

However, as it turned out, Bacon thought he saw the flagman waving the white.  As he came around the stripe the next time, he saw another flag waving and assumed it was the checkered.  As it turned out, that flag was, in fact, the white.  Bacon let off the gas on the actual last lap, assuming the race was over, and dropped from 1st to 8th as his competitors drove by him to knock him out from a potential second row starting spot.

As a result, Bacon was forced to transfer through the semi-feature, which he won, then rolled off from the 9th starting spot in the 30-lap feature – the same position he started from in his victory just 24 hours prior.

Ocala, Fla. (February 7, 2020)………A new year and a new beginning are just the things Tanner Thorson was seeking with the outset of the 2020 USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget season.

A highway crash last March sidelined

ies champion with serious injuries.  His eventual comeback was a mixed bag of highlight reel moments as well as an up-and-down closing to the campaign that left him without a full-time drive.

A Chili Bowl prelim victory in January was just a prelude to Friday night’s splendid drive by the Minden, Nev. native that witnessed him zip to the front in spectacular fashion just prior to and following a mid-race restart where he exchanged multiple sliders with series Rookie Buddy Kofoid to snare the lead and control the final 16 laps to score the win in the series season-opening Winter Dirt Games XI feature at Bubba Raceway Park.

Thorson’s 14th career USAC National Midget feature win in his Hayward Motorsports/OILFIRE – Factory Kahne – Walker Filtration – Smith Titanium/Spike/Stanton SR-11x moved him into the top-50 and in a four-way tie for 48th on the all-time series win list alongside Chuck Arnold, Jack Turner and Leroy Warriner.

Sunshine Grabs another USAC midget title!

banner year in USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget competition for Tyler Courtney and Clauson/Marshall Racing saw the combo claim their second USAC National title in as many years following a 2018 USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car title.  Their eight feature wins in 30 starts were the most victories by any team/driver combo in a

le USAC National Midget season since Jeff Gordon and Rollie Helmling in 1990.  In addition, they led the series in all major categories with 175 laps led, 20 top-fives, 26 top-tens, 8 fast qualifying times and 9 heat race wins to win the title by 179 points.

Another USAC Sprint Car Championship on keizer wheels.

teaming up during last year’s offseason, C.J. Leary and Reinbold/Underwood Motorsports immediately found a winning groove during their USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car season 2019 on their journey to a USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car driver and owner title.  They won their third race out of the box in Ocala, Fla. and took the lead

for good in May and held it for the remainder of the season.  The team’s first finish outside the top-ten didn’t come until August, leading to an extreme knack for consistency that saw them finish in the top-ten 32 times in 34 starts.  Along the way, they captured both the Eastern Storm and Indiana Sprint Week title and the Oval National in Perris, Calif. Their 11 fast qualifying times rank as the third most ever in a single USAC National Sprint Car season.

ASCS 4 time champ!!!!!!!!!!!!

into Texas Motor Speedway, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. was stalked by Blake Hahn for the 2019 championship with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, but a weekend high podium run on Thursday night locked up the Sunnyvale, Texas driver’s four consecutive title.

“To do this four times is pretty awesome

to have done it four times in a row is an even bigger accomplishment,” stated Hafertepe.

Looking at the stats of Sam’s four championships, two with Keith Dobbs and two with Hills Racing Team, the driver of the No. 15h landed 40 wins, 94 top-fives, and 114 top-tens in 139 A-Feature starts and is the fourth driver to have four or more titles with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, and is the third to do so consecutively with Terry Gray (1995-1998) and Gary Wright (2004-2007) on that list.

Speaking on the past four seasons, Sam explained, “The first two years, we really didn’t have anything in our way. We just dominated, and years three and four, luck started to catch up to us a little bit but thankfully we were still fast enough to overcome the bad luck and take advantage. For me, this is a pretty big accomplishment especially with the competition we’ve had.”

Bronson Bags $12,000 for Lucas & $10,000 in Showdown on the Suwannee & more

style=”color: #000000;”>October 6, 2019) Kyle Bronson, of Brandon, Florida, racked up his seventh overall win in 2019 on Friday night, October 4 in his first-ever visit to Raceway 7 in Conneaut, Ohio! Kyle won his heat race in preliminary action and later led laps 1-9 of the 50-lap main event. He was then running second and

to take advantage of Jimmy Owens’ misfortune on lap 46 to regain the point. Kyle went on to lead the remaining five circuits of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series special en route to capturing the $12,000 top prize over Tim McCreadie, Josh Richards, Hudson O’Neal, and Jonathan Davenport!


(October 27, 2019) Kyle Bronson, of Brandon, Florida, secured his eighth feature win of the 2019 campaign over the October 25-26 weekend in the ‘Showdown on the Suwannee’ for Limited Late Models at All-Tech Raceway in Ellisville, Florida! On Friday night during preliminary action, Kyle clicked off the fastest lap in his group during qualifying before claiming a second place effort in his heat race.

The Real Deal puts Clint Bowyer Racing on top! $20,000

PA (October 5, 2019) – Don O’Neal won his second Pittsburgher 100 in the last three years on Saturday Night at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway. In taking home the $20,000 first place prize, he also earns his first Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory of 2019 and became the 18th different Series winner this

his season.

Davenport led from the start of the race and appeared to be on the way to his first Pittsburgher 100 victory. Throughout the latter half of the event, he fought off O’Neal’s constant challenges, but was pulling away when a caution came out for a stalled car in turn four.  Under the lap 93 caution, Davenport slowed to a stop in the middle of the backstretch, and was pushed back to the hot pit area to add fuel to his Longhorn Chassis.

Earl Pearson Jr. charged from the 23rd stating spot to finish second behind O’Neal.  Tim McCreadie rallied from two pitstops to finish in third. Jimmy Owens fought his way back to finish fourth after tangling with another car just shy of half way and having to restart at the tail, and 2-time Pittsburgher 100 winner, Gregg Satterlee, rounded out the top five.

Tyler Courtney Wins Wild USAC Midget Portion of the 4-Crown Nationals

Ohio (September 28, 2019) — Tyler Courtney was victorious in one of the most memorable USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget Car Series events event held at Eldora Speedway during the 38th running of the 4-Crown Nationals. Courtney, Tanner Carrick, and Logan Seavey exchanged slide jobs the last half of the main event before Courtney

ney was able to take the lead with two laps to go and drove to victory. The win was Courtney’s second in a row in the midget car portion of the 4-Crown National driving for Clauson-Marshall Racing.

“For a while I couldn’t gain any ground on those guys because we were all going the same speed,” said Courtney. “We got to lapped traffic and we started racing a bit. I just tried to time my moves right, but Tanner just kept coming back. He’s turning into one heck of a driver. To win all three you have to start with one. That one was a lot harder than I was hoping for but this is Eldora. That’s what this place is all about. Hopefully that’s a good way to start of the night for these fans.”

Tanner Carrick led the opening lap with his Keith Kunz Motorsports teammate Logan Seavey in second, shuffling front row starter Jerry Coons Jr. back to third position. Rico Abreu made his presence felt early dropping Coons back to third position on the second lap and set out after the leaders.

The red flag appeared on lap five when Jason McDougal flipped in turn four. McDougal exited the car under his own power.

Following the red flag Seavey took the lead from Carrick with a slide job in turns one and two only to have Carrick return the favor at the other end of the racetrack to maintain the top position. Behind them Courtney was moving up from his sixth starting position and drove by Abreu for the third spot.

With 11 laps complete Carrick Seavey, and Courtney pulled away from the rest of the field. On lap 16 the fireworks began when Seavey made a bit for the lead diving under Carrick to take the lead. Seavey and Carrick began to slide job each other on each end of the racetrack exchanging the lead on each end of the race track.

With five laps to go Courtney threw his hat into the ring putting a slide job on Seavey for second. Seavey crossed back as Carrick opened some distance between himself and the race for second. That cushion was short lived as Courtney gained the second position from Seavey and started exchanging slide jobs with Carrick. This continued until Courtney threw the final slide job on Carrick in turns one and two and pulled away to take the white flag.

Courtney completed the finale lap uncontested for the victory over Carrick, Seavey, Abreu, and Kevin Thomas Jr.

USAC Sprint Car 4 Crown win!

style=”font-weight: 400;”>Rossburg, Ohio………To get to double-digits in the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car win column, you must win at Eldora Speedway.

Maybe it’s an omen, a harbinger or what have you, but history tells us as much.

Courtney reiterated that fact Saturday night during the 37th running of the “4-Crown Nationals” presented by NKT.TV,

the tenth occasion a driver has reached at least 10 series wins in a season and the 10th of those select drivers in that club to win at Eldora during their banner year.

Tom Bigelow (14 wins), J.J. Yeley & Robert Ballou (13), Larry Dickson & Pancho Carter (12), Bubby Jones (11), Dickson, Carter & Jay Drake (10) each got it done at Eldora on their magical seasons.  Now you can add a little “Sunshine” to that list.

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 seemed to do 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 hard-charging C.J. Leary left that fairytale ending hanging in the balance momentarily.

Courtney started from the pole position, 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.

As Leary trailed Ballou, the reigning “4-Crown” Sprint Car winner was amidst a battle with Courtney for second.  Courtney threaded the dot of the i around the outside of Leary in turn two.  Leary then snagged the concrete and spun completely around down the back straightaway and somehow, someway, avoided catastrophe as the entire field missed him, allowing him to restart, although he would now have to come from the tail in 22nd.

Following the restart, Courtney made his surge, sliding past Ballou entering the third turn.  Ballou countered with an uppercut to the chin and clung to his grip of the lead as the pair crossed the line.  Courtney reloaded and fired his next shot, sliding to the lead past Ballou entering turn one.  By lap 10, Courtney’s advantage was a full-straight ahead of Ballou.

Ballou’s bid to get back into the game hit a literal snag on the 14th lap when he clipped the turn two outside wall and spun around to a stop, ending his evening earlier than anticipated.  That moved Justin Grant into second where he and the hard-charging Leary took a full head a steam at running down Courtney.  Grant found the demise of his night in the same spot that took caught Leary and Ballou earlier in turn two.  Grant’s car churned against the concrete along the back straight before grinding to a halt with four laps remaining.

Leary was in second behind Courtney for the lap 27 restart, but a challenge to Courtney’s throne was discarded almost immediately as Courtney blitzed to a good jump when action resumed.  The only race for position was behind Courtney as Leary, Kevin Thomas, Jr. and Isaac Chapple roamed three-wide at times for the runner-up position.

It was all to Courtney’s advantage, however, as he drove away to his tenth series win of the year and joined Jack Hewitt, Kyle Larson, Jerry Coons, Jr. and Dave Darland as the fifth driver to win in a Midget, USAC Sprint Car and Silver Crown car during his “4-Crown” career.

Leary finished second ahead of Chapple, who scored a career-best third-place result.  Point leader Thomas was fourth ahead of Chris Windom.

WOO 4 Crown win at Edora!

Schuchart entered Friday’s race at Eldora Speedway with an attitude. He felt like the half-mile speedway owned him.

He finished second for the third time in-a-row during the May event at the track. During the four July races there he finished third, third, fourth and second at the Kings Royal.

Schuchart craved a second win at the

rack – his first came in 2017. He was a shark that sensed blood in the water. No one was going to keep him from his target. He and his Shark Racing team made sure of it.

Aside from Hot Laps, which were ran twice due to a two-and-a-half-hour rain delay before Qualifying, Schuchart won everything he could involving a sprint car Friday night. He set Quick Time, won his Drydene Heat race, drew the pole for the DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash, won the Dash and led all 30 laps in the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series Feature – earning his eighth victory of the season.

“This is definitely one, coming to Eldora, is one I always look forward to,” Schuchart said. “It’s been really good to us. We just haven’t been able to win one. So, to end our season at Eldora and win one is cool. Especially since I’ve had so many good runs and haven’t won one since 2017. It’s cool to win at this place any chance you get.”

UP and Down moment for WOO Winner.

Schuchart could see victory at the Stockton Dirt Track with three laps to go. He could see his opportunity to sweep the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series races at the track. And he could see collecting the $20,000 award for winning the NOS Energy Drink Showdown.

However, he could also see his

k Racing teammate Jacob Allen leading, searching for his first World of Outlaws win. He couldn’t catch him. A runner-up finish looked like his calling, and he was OK with that.

Cruising down the backstretch, he saw Allen’s Drydene No. 1a car power into turn three, heading for two laps to go. When Schuchart exited turn four, he no longer saw Allen in front of him. The white and blue No. 1a slowed and pulled into the infield.

The lead was Schuchart’s. And after two clean laps, so was the win.

“It’s a tough deal,” Schuchart said of Allen’s affliction. “I’m happy to get the win. It’s awesome to have these cars up front. Whatever happened, this team works really hard to keep these cars on the racetrack.”

The victory was Schuchart’s seventh of the year – further breaking his record of winning at most four wins in a season – and 15th career World of Outlaws win overall.

Golobic’s night with the WOO!!!!!

has filled Shane Golobic’s mind for the last six years.

His first and only World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series win came in 2013. Since then he’s questioned if he would or could ever win one again.

There was a clear answer Wednesday night during the 49er Gold Rush Classic presented by Riebes NAPA

ts at Placerville Speedway.

Golobic tested the limits of his vocal cords from yelling inside his NOS Energy Drink No. 17w car. He couldn’t get out of it fast enough and do something his calm mannered self would rarely do.

He climbed to the top wing of his car, yelling and cheering, with the checkered flag in hand, letting the blue and orange confetti bath him while he celebrated his second World of Outlaws wins.

“I feel like two gives you a little more credibility than one,” said Golobic, who runs a part-time schedule with the Series. “I got the first one at a little short track, Antioch (Speedway). It was a none stop Feature, it counts as an Outlaws win one hundred percent, but there’s always that little bit of doubt. I’m not so much worried about other people, what they think, but just in me. You know, it’s been a few years since we done it. You just wonder if it is ever going to happen again. Tonight, we had the race car to do it.”

Richards wins his first career Hillbilly Hundred on keizer Wheels!

W.V. (September 1, 2019) – West Virginia native Josh Richards won his first career Hillbilly Hundred Richards won his first career Hillbilly Hundred on Sunday night at the Tyler County Speedway. on Sunday night at the Tyler County Speedway.

The 31-year-old grew up coming to the track, and tonight, led all 100 laps to score the

the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory worth $30,000 in front of a capacity crowd.

Richards’ third Lucas Oil win of the season came over the defending Hillbilly Hundred winner Brandon Overton, Tim McCreadie, 20th starting Shanon Buckingham, and Jimmy Owens. Richards fought off the challenges of Owens for the first 80 laps of the race as they ran 1-2 for that entire distance until a caution flag with 20 laps to go changed the complexion in the race for second.

On the restart Richards maintained his lead and McCreadie moved into second. At one-point McCreadie, Overton, and Buckingham raced three-wide around the tight bullring for the second position. A caution with seven laps to go set-up a quick dash to the finish. Richards again pulled away just enough to pick up the win while Overton passed McCreadie for second with two laps remaining.
In front of a partisan West Virginia crowd, the homestate driver had accomplished one of his life-long dreams, by winning America’s oldest dirt late model crown jewel event. “I don’t know if I wanted to see that last caution. I wanted to get a couple of lap cars between myself and those other guys. You never know what you got. The right rear tire was getting a little warmer than I wanted. The car was phenomenal. The guys did a great job on the car.”

“I used to come here with my uncle Robbie Scott and watch everybody win this race, guys like Davey Johnson who drove for my dad won this race. I want to thank the crowd; they are great as always tonight and thanks to Carl Short for putting on this event.”

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.

Bacon and Courntey Both capture USAC eastern storm wins!

and Courtney would both score victories at on the eastern storm trip.

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. 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.

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.”

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 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

“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.

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.

ng 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

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 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!!!!


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.

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.

Win #10 in the 2018 season!

Irwin picked up our 10th win in 2018 at the MTS season finale on Saturday at Crystal Motor Speedway!

Hafertepe puts $10G’s in his pocket for Hockett Memorial!

Hulbert – WHEATLAND, Mo. (September 22, 2018) Winning for the second year in a row, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. dominated the 30-lap, $10,000 to win finale to the 8th annual Hockett/McMillin Memorial with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by


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.


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.

15-year-old Zeb Wise captured the victory in the

t, a 20-lap elimination race in which you would be eliminated if you were passed.  Coming to the white flag, the Angola, Ind. native went on the offense, sliding by Alex Bright in turn four on the penultimate lap to win the $1500 payday, plus $100 for each of the 17 cars he passed from his 18th starting position.  In doing so, he put the 39BC in victory lane at the BC39, a fitting tribute to the late, great USAC champ in which the event is named for.

$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. A pair of late red flags bunched the field up with the final one coming a lap after Thomas Kennedy passed both McCarl and Lee Grosz to move into the runner-up position with only seven laps remaining.

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.”

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.”

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.

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.

Dylan Bloomfield gets a pile of Bears!

Bloomfield wins the California Speedweek Points Championship after capturing two bears and 2 second place finishes out of the 4 races against 42 cars!
It is an amazing feat for such a young star. Congrats Dylan and the entire team! 


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 “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.”



Weedsport, New York………Thomas Meseraull returned to victory lane for the king of “Eastern Storm” for the second consecutive year Tuesday night in the debut at Weedsport Speedway for the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Cars.

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.
