Shingledecker and Lynch wire fields for second wins, Miley earns hard fought feature win; Clark Tames 305 Sprints

 

Sarver, PA (June 12, 2021) A night of fireworks and racing were at the center of Friday night’s program at Lernerville Speedway. And neither aspects disappointed as the sizable crowd on hand came to realize through four feature events that saw four talented drivers finding their way around a challenging surface en route to Terry Bowser Excavating Victory Lane.

Colton Flinner looked to be well on the way to his first career feature victory in the Precise Racing Products Late Model main event, having led the race from the drop of the green flag drop while surviving a number of restarts in early race cautions. However,10th starting Jared Miley used two critical restarts to get close to and then overtake Flinner, the second one came on a lap 16 restart and helped launch Miley over the finish line first as he took his second feature win of the season. In Diehl Automotive Big Block Modified action, Jeremiah Shingledecker in similar fashion, kept the field behind him from the start of the race having started on the front row. Shingledecker then amassed a full straightaway advantage over second running Garrett Krummert. With 20 laps in the books, John Mollick rolled in turn four hard to bring out the red flag, halting all forward progress for the moment. Mollick was able to leave the car under his own power and when action resumed, Krummert was able to inch closer to Shingledecker but not able to pull the trigger on a pass for the lead as Shingledecker collected his second win at The Action Track this year.

The course of the Peoples Natural Gas Sprint feature was altered before it began as top drivers Jack Sodeman Jr. and Michael Bauer each rolled their cars in a turn four tangle in their heat race earlier in the night, taking them out of contention for the remainder of the program. Both drivers were okay. However, the remaining field was thick with possible scenarios in the main event as the front row featured two Apollo, PA based drivers in AJ Flick and Sye Lynch, the two drivers who were nearly tied for the lead in the division standings at the drop of the green flag. Lynch narrowed those potential win scenarios with his right foot from the initial start with a blazing fast car and a driver that knew exactly where to navigate it. Lynch rocketed to substantial sized leads throughout the 25 lap main event and pegged several restarts en route to his second feature win as Flick closed fast in desperation in the waning laps but came up short in his bid to overtake the leader. In Allegheny Sprint Tour 305 Sprint action, Justin Clark put the field behind him with authority while keeping former feature winners Robbie Bartchy and Jacob Gomola at bay, showing speed at every opportunity in taking his first career victory at Lernerville.

Ian Madsen kicks-off Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires with victory at Attica Raceway Park

 

ATTICA, Ohio (June 11, 2021) - To say Ian Madsen and Sam McGhee Motorsports have been close to victory is a slight understatement. After five runner-up finishes during FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 competition thus far in 2021, Ian Madsen is finally a winner, breaking through during night one of the 39th running of Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires at Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio. With his victory, Madsen is also the official Speedweek points leader, one step closer to the $5,000 championship check that will be awarded at the conclusion of the eight-race/nine-day campaign on Saturday, June 19.

In addition, the $6,000 Attica triumph was Madsen’s first trip to All Star victory lane since Four Crown Nationals competition at Eldora Speedway in 2016. Madsen now owns a grand total of four All Star victories.

“This is kinda unreal. I’m a little speechless right now,” Ian Madsen said in Attica Raceway Park victory lane. “It’s been so long since I won a race and it’s an incredible feeling to finally do it again. I can’t thank Sam McGhee Motorsports enough for giving me the opportunity this year. These guys took a chance on me to come out here and win races this year. We’ve been painfully close so many times. It feels awesome to get the first one.”

After a hard-fought battle for second with the Coldren Motorsports entry piloted by Skylar Gee, taking the position officially on lap eight, Ian Madsen set his aim on race leader and outside-pole sitter, Justin Peck. Peck, who opened up to a stout advantage, found himself dancing with lapped cars by lap 10, which allowed Madsen to close the gap.

By lap 12, Madsen had all but caught the Buch Motorsports No. 13, eventually sneaking by his fellow All Star championship contender on the bottom of turn four the following circuit. Refusing to give up, Peck tried his best to get back by the Mike McGhee & Associates No. 11, working up a wicked slider through turns three and four on lap 15. Incidental contact between the two would ultimately lead to Peck spinning to a stop at the top of turn four; Madsen would survive and maintain the point position.

The remainder of Madsen’s effort would see little in the form of challenges. A series of cautions would keep the St. Marys, New South Wales, Australia-native out of thick traffic and out of harm's way. Cory Eliason would battle ahead from fifth to finish second, followed by Skylar Gee, Cole Macedo, and Tyler Courtney, who rallied from 15th to claim his top-five outcome.

“You really can’t pace yourself when you have guys like Cory (Eliason) behind you,” Ian Madsen continued. “I ended up moving down the track, which made me a little nervous, but it all worked out.”

Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires will continue on Saturday, June 12, at Fremont Speedway in Fremont, Ohio. If necessary, Sunday, June 13, slated to be an off day, will be used as Fremont’s rain date.

PERFECT TIMING: Carson Macedo Gives JJR Another Knoxville Win on Final Restart Kerry Madsen Led Opening 21 Laps Aboard Tony Stewart Racing #14

 

KNOXVILLE, IA - June 11, 2021 - From Jason Johnson to David Gravel, there's always been something special about the JJR #41 at Knoxville Raceway.

On Friday night, Carson Macedo became the newest to trust Philip Dietz on the wrenches and soar to glory on the black zook clay in World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series competition. The Lemoore, CA native aced the final restart of the race and roared by Kerry Madsen's #14 to take the lead with three laps left.

The win not only marked the 10th of Macedo's World of Outlaws  career, but it was his first-ever 410 Sprint Car triumph at The Sprint Car Capital of the World.

Better yet, it only proves just how lethal Macedo, Dietz, and the rest of the JJR boys are when it comes the Iowa 1/2-mile. In six total appearances at Knoxville in the #41, Macedo has never finished outside of the top-10 and four times he's put it on the podium.

His late-race steal gave him the $10,000 check from the Brownells Big Guns Bash, and it allowed him to gain more crucial points on Brad Sweet and David Gravel in the championship chase.

"I'm a little out of breath from yelling, I'm so damn happy," an ecstatic Macedo mentioned. "You know I sat in Jason's [Johnson] parents motorhome earlier and watched video after video of this place with Craig and Debra. I feel like there's a common theme on winning at this place and I thought if  I don't do it right, at least I'll get better at it. Winning at Knoxville in the #41 is pretty special."

More than anything else, Macedo is oozing with swagger. He's ready for August, and the potential to become Jason Johnson Racing's third different driver to win the Knoxville Nationals.

"My confidence is extremely high right now," Macedo offered. "Leading into tomorrow, leading into the Nationals, I 100% believe we're going to be a threat."

Before Macedo parked the JJR #41 in victory lane, another pair of superstar teams stole attention to begin the night.

Kasey Kahne made his return to the seat for the first time since March, and quickly drove a third KKR #9T around Knoxville in 15.176 seconds in an effort worthy of the Slick Woodys Cornhole Company QuickTime Award.

The attention then shifted to Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing, who completed a front row lockout by placing Kerry Madsne's #14 on the pole and Donny Schatz's #15 to his outside in the 25-lap NOS Energy Drink Feature.

Madsen jetted to the initial lead and Schatz slipped to third as Macedo rose to the occasion down the backstretch on the opening circuit. The duo offered a high-speed chess match through lap traffic, but it never got really close (outside of a Lap 11 bobble) until the only caution of the race flew on Lap 20 of 25.

Creating a single-file restart, Madsen brought the field back to green with five laps remaining and Macedo hot on his heels.

"Kerry was maneuvering in and out of lap traffic so well," Macedo applauded. "There were a couple of times I thought I would have runs on him, but the lappers zigged and zagged the wrong ways. I saw the caution and thought I would be tough to get such a good start, but somehow we made it happen."

Make it happen, indeed. As Madsen stuck the bottom, Macedo carried his speed through the corners and built a run off turn four and down there front stretch. He peaked under Madsen's #14 and drove it hard into turn one to secure the lead and officially lead the 22nd Lap.

From there, he pulled away and saw the checkered flag to earn his fourth win of the 2021 World of Outlaws campaign.

"This is one of the toughest tracks in the country," Macedo praised Knoxville. "It's so technical, but I'm lucky to have this crew behind me. My car was so good that when even I as the driver made mistakes, it felt like the car could make the recovery for me."

Falling short of Macedo's #41 by 0.748-seconds at the checkered flag, Logan Schuchart crossed the stripe in second-place. A momentum building run for his Shark Racing, Drydene Performance Products #1S, which has time and time again proven lethal at Knoxville's 1/2-mile.

"It's always fun racing at this place against the best in the business," Schuchart mentioned. You're doing something right when you're passing Knoxville Nationals champions like Donny [Schatz] and Brad [Sweet]. I could tell he didn't feel comfortable on the bottom in turns three and four, and that's where I felt like I was making tons of ground, but we just ran out of time."

After leading the opening 21 laps from pole position, Kerry Madsen ended up with a third-place finish aboard the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing, Advanced Auto Parts, Rush Truck Centers #14. It's the first podium effort of 2021 for the St. Mary's, NSW, AUS driver.

"We were looking good for a bit man," Madsen said. "What a team to be involved. I was feeling comfortable all race long, but I just didn't make the right adjustments under caution. I let the boys down. Hopefully we come back better tomorrow."

Rounding out the top-five on night one of the Brownells Big Guns Bash was outside pole sitter Donny Schatz in fourth aboard the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing #15 and then Giovanni Scelzi in the fifth spot in his KCP Racing #18.

Closing out the top-10 on Friday was championship leader Brad Sweet in sixth, reigning Knoxville Nationals champion David Gravel in seventh, weekly hero Brian Brown in eighth, Knoxville resident Aaron Reutzel in ninth, and Missouri's Ayrton Gennetten with his first-career World of Outlaws top-10.

UP NEXT: The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series will be back at Iowa's Knoxville Raceway tomorrow, Saturday, June 12 to conclude the Brownells Big Guns Bash.

Grosz and Bosma Top Thrilling Sprint Car Features at Jackson Motorplex

 

Inside Line Promotions - JACKSON, Minn. (June 11, 2021) - Lee Grosz and Brandon Bosma hustled to Victory Lane on Friday evening during a sprint car event presented by Joel Pingeon Trucking at Jackson Motorplex.


Grosz capitalized on a fast car and fortune to score his fifth career Midwest Power Series victory, which ranks second on the all-time list. The 360ci winged sprint car feature was also sanctioned by the Midwest Sprint Touring Series. It marked the 12th career triumph with the series, which also ranks second on the career wins list, for Grosz.

Brooke Tatnell drove to the lead on the opening lap of the 25-lap main event as Grosz was fourth. Grosz advanced to third on Lap 2 and to second place on Lap 11. He took the top spot on Lap 15 when Tatnell slid out of the preferred bottom groove in turn four. Grosz led the lap by 0.064 of a second, but Tatnell reclaimed first place in turn two.

A caution came out before the lap was completed, placing Grosz into the lead for the restart with 10 laps remaining. It didn't take long for traffic to play a factor as Grosz pushed up the track in turn one on Lap 21 while closing in on a car to lap, allowing Tatnell to fire into the top spot. However, one lap later Tatnell got into the back of a car he was attempting to lap in turn four. The contact forced him into the berm and spun his car around, bringing out the final caution of the race.


Grosz inherited the lead and pulled away to win by 1.750 seconds over Jody Rosenboom, who charged from 10th to the runner-up result. Jack Dover rounded out the podium with Tim Estenson finishing fourth and Eric Lutz fifth.

Grosz set quick time during qualifying to kick off the night before Estenson, Dover and Tatnell each earned a heat race victory.

Bosma came out on top of a thrilling Wyffels Hybrids RaceSaver Sprint Car Series 20-lap main event, which featured four official lead changes.

Trevor Serbus charged from fourth into the lead on the opening lap. Dusty Ballenger powered into first place on Lap 5, but Serbus regained the top spot during a restart on Lap 6. Ballenger chased Serbus for the ensuing nine laps before capitalizing on Serbus getting into the berm in turns three and four to move back into the lead.


Bosma, who started eighth, also took advantage and advanced into second place. He used the outside lane to his benefit on Lap 16 to pull next to Ballenger down the backstretch before taking the lead in turns three and four.

It was far from easy sailing though as Bosma got into the rear of a driver he was attempting to lap on Lap 17. He pushed up the track and 11 th-starting Rosenboom, who had just passed Ballenger for second, was about to take the lead when the caution came out.

The caution benefitted Bosma, who restarted in the lead and held on during the ensuing restart as well as a green-white-checkered finish for his first win at Jackson Motorplex this season. The margin of victory was 0.816 of a second.

Ballenger placed second with Rosenboom third, Brandon Allen fourth and Javen Ostermann fifth.

Allen, Rosenboom and Ballenger were the heat race winners.

Jackson Motorplex will be dormant next weekend in preparation for THE SHOWDOWN, which features the 43rd annual AGCO Jackson Nationals June 24-26. The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series event pays $50,000 to the win.

The Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Cars will again be in attendance and they will be joined by the River Valley Builders Super Late Models.

39th edition of Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires commences Friday at Attica $12,000 points fund to be awarded to top-five in Speedweek standings

 

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (June 9, 2021) - Perhaps the most grueling nine days in all of motorsports, as well as the pinnacle of the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 season, the 39th edition of Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires is set to blast off on Friday evening, June 11, activating an eight-race/nine-day brawl across the Buckeye State.

Set to face-off against a stout contingent of local and regional competition, the traveling All Stars will compete at eight different ovals during their 2021 Ohio Sprint Speedweek campaign, battling for a total winner’s share equaling $59,554. In addition, a $12,000 Ohio Sprint Speedweek points fund will be spread among the top-five in the final Speedweek standings; $5,000 awarded to the champion and $2,500, $2,000, $1,500, and $1,000 awarded to second through fifth, respectively.

Ohio Sprint Speedweek will kick-off, officially, with a visit to Attica Raceway Park on Friday, June 11, followed by a stop just 45 minutes northwest at Fremont Speedway on Saturday, June 12. The only off day on the schedule, Sunday, June 13, will also be utilized as a rain date for the Attica and Fremont events. Speedweek competition will resume on Monday, June 14, with a visit to “Orrville's Historic Oval” at Wayne County Speedway, flanked by a stop further east at Sharon Speedway in Hartford on Tuesday, June 15.

Back-to-back visits to Waynesfield Raceway Park in Waynesfield and Muskingum County Speedway in Dresden will take up the mid-week segment of the Ohio Sprint Speedweek agenda on Wednesday and Thursday, June 16-17, followed by an appearance at the bullring at Limaland Motorsports Park on Friday, June 18. The first seven stops on the schedule will award $6,000 top prizes.

Concluding the 39th running of Ohio Sprint Speedweek, the annual Dean Knittel Memorial, once again contested at Portsmouth Raceway Park in Portsmouth, will cap the eight-race march with a $17,554-to-win blockbuster on Saturday, June 19; a $2,000 bump from the year prior. Boasting a total purse exceeding $60,000, the Dean Knittel Memorial will guarantee a minimum of $954 to each A-Main starter. Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson is the defending Knittel winner; one of 14 All Star victories for “Yung Money” in 2020.

Three-time All Star champion and Clute, Texas-native, Aaron Reutzel is the defending Ohio Sprint Speedweek titleholder, scoring a Fremont Speedway win along the way before capping his championship run by 82 markers over Vienna, West Virginia’s Cale Conley. Nashville, Tennessee’s Paul McMahan was third in the 2020 Ohio Sprint Speedweek standings, followed by Cory Eliason and Zeb Wise.

Kyle Larson, the aforementioned defending champion of the Dean Knittel Memorial/Speedweek finale, scored two Speedweek victories in 2020, the first occurring just two nights prior of the Knittel at Brushcreek Motorsports Complex.

Republic, Ohio’s Cap Henry, who has since returned to the road as a full-time All Star competitor, also scored a pair of Speedweek victories last season; first during opening night at Attica Raceway Park and the second just three starts later at Wayne County Speedway.

A pair of Californians in Buddy Kofoid and Rico Abreu each scored one Speedweek win in 2020, doing so at Fremont Speedway and Muskingum County Speedway, respectively.

National Sprint Car Hall of Famer and Hartford, Ohio-native, Dale Blaney is the all-time leading champion of Ohio Sprint Speedweek, scoring a total of six titles between 1995 and 2019, three of which accomplished in four years. Other multi-time Ohio Sprint Speedweek champions include Frankie Kerr (4), Tim Shaffer (3), Stevie Smith (2), Sammy Swindell (2), Joey Saldana (2), and Chad Kemenah (2).
The only active All Star who has earned a Speedweek championship is Paul McMahan. The pilot of the CJB Motorsports entry, who is currently eighth in the All Star driver standings despite a late start in establishing “full-time” status for CJB, earned his Speedweek title in 2018, opening the week with a victory at Attica Raceway Park.

“Sunshine” Tyler Courtney will lead the traveling All Stars into Ohio Sprint Speedweek competition as the leading Series championship contender, scoring five victories to date with his most recent at Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wisconsin, on Friday, June 4. Ian Madsen, who is on a stretch of three consecutive runner-up finishes, is second in the title chase, followed by Hunter Schuerenberg, Bill Balog, and Cory Eliason.

Courtney may be the championship leader, but the “Northpole Nightmare” Bill Balog is the hottest competitor on tour currently, scoring the last two All Star victories, the first two of his career, while jumping ahead to fourth in the driver standings. Balog earned his All Star triumphs at Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wisconsin, and Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, on Saturday and Sunday, June 5-6, respectively.

KENOSHA KING: Gravel Guides World of Outlaws to Wilmot on July 10 One-Night Stop in Wisconsin Before "Month of Money" Arrives

 

WILMOT, WI - June 9, 2021 - For one night only, The Greatest Show on Dirt is coming to Wilmot Raceway.

The lone event on the weekend, the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series will bring the best drivers in the country to the Kenosha County Fairgrounds 1/3-mile oval on Saturday, July 10. 

Next month's Badger 40 will mark the ninth-ever appearance by the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars at the Wisconsin track.

BUY TICKETS HERE (7/10)

Over the last six trips, David Gravel of Watertown, CT has been nearly unstoppable the racy semi-banked bullring. Four of his 63 career World of Outlaws wins (15th all-time) have come at Wilmot; even more impressive is the fact that those four wins have come with three different car owners. 

In 2014, he led the final 23 laps over Joey Saldana to win aboard the Roth Motorsports #83; In 2016, he led all 40 laps to win with the CJB Motorsports #5; In 2017, he won again with CJB in a torrid battle with Brad Sweet & Shane Stewart; In 2020, he took the Jason Johnson Racing #41 to victory lane in a flag-to-flag score.

Even when Gravel doesn't win at Wilmot, he's always scoring points and running consistently. In the only two events he lost at the Wisconsins track, the 28-year-old finished a respectable second in 2019 and fourth in 2018.

Now, he'll head to Wilmot for the first time with the Big Game Motorsports #2. Since linking up with car owner Tod Quiring and crew chief Cody Jacobs, the combination has been lethal over the first 28 races. They've won five Features this year and currently sit second in the championship standings.

"Something about that place just really clicks with my driving style," Gravel noted. "I remember from day one, I always loved the track. We've won there now with several different cars, and hopefully I can get Big Game Motorsports a win next month in my first try with them."

The only other full-time driver to win at Wilmot is 10-time Series champion, Donny Schatz. He parked his Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing #15 in victory lane two years ago in 2019, beating Gravel to the stripe.

Schatz has been at the forefront of the attention all season long, chasing his milestone 300th career World of Outlaws victory. Albeit winless in 2021, his Carquest, Ford Performance machine has been a staple of consistency when luck falls their way. Recently, they've rallied to fourth in the championship standings with their sights set on an 11th championship.

For championship leader Brad Sweet, Wilmot has always been good to him minus a rough 19th-place finish last year. Prior to that result, the Kasey Kahne Racing, NAPA Auto Parts #49 was consistently battling for podiums with runs of 3rd, 3rd, 4th, 4th. With another month left before the Wilmot return, Sweet has nine World of Outlaws to his credit this season as he chases his third consecutive title.

Currently in third in the title chase is Carson Macedo, who leads the charge of drivers hoping for their first Wilmot win. Others hungry for that elusive victory is Sheldon Haudenschild and Logan Schuchart, along with Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year contenders Aaron Reutzel, Brock Zearfoss, and James McFadden.

WILMOT RACEWAY WINNERS:
4 wins - David Gravel (20, 17, 16, 14) 4th in 18
1 win - Donny Schatz (19)
1 win - Brent Marks (18)
1 win - Daryn Pittman
1 win - Mark Dobmeier (06)

Henderson and Sandvig Score Another Top Five at Huset's Speedway

 

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (June 9, 2021) - Justin Henderson produced a fifth-place finish behind the wheel of the Mike Sandvig Racing No. 7 at Huset's Speedway on Sunday.

The top-five outing followed up a 14th-place result at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday.


"It was one of those weekends where we would have liked to have had better results, but it really wasn't that bad either," Henderson said. "Sometimes you can be your own worst enemy in this sport and I think we just overcomplicated things for ourselves this weekend and the results showed."

Henderson kicked off the action at Knoxville Raceway by qualifying 15 th quickest out of 29 drivers with a lap of 16.410 seconds. He then finished where he started - second - in a heat race to earn the 11 th starting spot for the feature event.

Henderson struggled on the initial start and dropped back a few positions as he found himself in 14th early in the race. With the feature event going caution-free and the field getting stretched out, Henderson wasn't able to mount a comeback and he settled for the 14th -place finish. He remains second in the track's championship standings.

"We brought the car back that we crashed at Huset's last week and it took us all night to try and find the base we needed to be at," he said. "We made a bunch of changes and it seems like we just never quite got it dialed in. We fell backwards and honestly we just were not very good all night."

The following night the team headed to Huset's Speedway for I-29 RV SuperCenter Night. Henderson qualified eighth quickest out of 19 drivers with a lap of 11.126 seconds. He then finished third in a heat race to garner the 10th starting spot for the feature.

Henderson was on the move early and steadily made his way into the top five. His drive forward stalled there as he suffered a broken right rear shock and nursed the car home for a fifth-place result at the completion of the 25 laps. The top-five finish allowed him to gain points in the championship standings. Henderson currently sits third and now trails first by a mere nine markers.

"We were really quick early in hot laps and we made a few gear changes and I think we just went a little too far with the gear in time trials," he said. "We were really good in the feature. We were just kind of picking our way to the front and then the car just kind of seemed to lose handling. It turns out that we had a broken right rear shock most of the night and we just never could really tell. When the shock was cold and in the pits, the problem wouldn't show itself. However, when we got going on the track and it heated up is when it would really be an issue. I'm just glad we found it now and that way we're not beating our heads later trying to figure it out."

Henderson and Sandvig will race three times this weekend. They'll join the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series on Friday and Saturday at Knoxville Raceway for the Brownells Big Guns Bash before competing in a Buffalo Wild Wings Northern Outlaw Sprint Association event at Huset's Speedway on Sunday.

"We know what we are up against with the Outlaws coming into town and the goal is to just try to put together a couple of mistake-free nights and leave with a few good finishes," Henderson said. "We know we have equipment capable of contending and it's up to us to not screw it up. I'm looking forward to the weekend."

June 5 - Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa - Qualifying: 15; Heat race: 2 (2); Feature: 14 (11).

Wilson Amped for Upcoming All Stars' Ohio Sprint Speedweek

 

Inside Line Promotions - PLYMOUTH, Wis. (June 9, 2021) - Greg Wilson is putting his best foot forward this week when his Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics and DNC Hydraulics backed team tackles the 39th annual Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires.

"This week and the Kings Royal are my two favorite weeks of the year," he said. "Also, it's cool to have Hercules Tires as the presenting sponsor of Speedweek. It's been neat to see their involvement in the sport grow as they have been a great partner of our race team for several years."


Wilson will debut a new car during Ohio Sprint Speedweek, which begins on Friday at Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio. The remaining races are Saturday at Fremont Speedway in Fremont, Ohio; Monday at Wayne County Speedway in Orrville, Ohio; June 15 at Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio; June 16 at Waynesfield Raceway Park in Waynesfield, Ohio; June 17 at Muskingum County Speedway in Dresden, Ohio; June 18 at Limaland Motorsports Park in Lima, Ohio; and June 19 at Portsmouth Raceway Park in Portsmouth, Ohio.

"A whole bunch of it is preparation," he said. "The year that we won Speedweek in 2015 we were prepared, but things went our way, too. You have to put yourself in position to be decent every night and finish races. You hope the racing gods are on your side and you have some luck, too. It takes a little of everything to have success.

"Every night is its own battle. It's highly competitive like all racing is right now. You'll have a lot of outsiders. The key is to hopefully make the A Main every night and let the rest of it play out. If you can string some top-10 runs together the rest of it takes care of itself. You can't get caught up in we're going here and then going there. The first thought is tonight we need to time in well and then we think about making it out of our heat race."

Wilson raced three times with the All Stars last weekend, posting a result of 15th on Thursday at Fairbury Speedway in Fairbury, Ill., before a crash ended his night early on Friday at Wilmot Raceway. Wilson drove for Alan Gilbertson on Saturday at Plymouth Dirt Track, where he overcame a DNF in a heat race to advance from 14th to third in the B Main and from 23rd to 19th in the A Main.

"I really appreciate Alan and his family for allowing me to run his car Saturday night," he said. "They've become pretty good friends of ours. It was neat to get in something different to see if what I have been thinking all along about race cars is right or wrong. We had a pretty fast race car and it taught me a lot. We had a lot of fun and I think it helped both of us."

QUICK RESULTS -

June 3 - Fairbury Speedway in Fairbury, Ill. - Qualifying: 19; Heat race: 5 (5); Feature: 15 (19).

June 4 - Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wis. - Qualifying: 25; Heat race: 10 (7); B Main: DNS (-).

June 5 - Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wis. - Qualifying: 30; Heat race: DNF (8); B Main: 3 (14); Feature: 19 (23).

Dominic Scelzi Solid During Debut in Dobmeier No. 13 Sprint Car

 

Inside Line Promotions - SAUK RAPIDS, Minn. (June 9, 2021) - Dominic Scelzi enjoyed a fast race car last weekend when he made his debut of driving for Mark Dobmeier.

Scelzi kicked off a World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series doubleheader on Friday at River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, N.D., during the Gerdau Presents the 1st Leg of the Northern Tour.


"We qualified 11th the first night," he said. "It was the first time we got to hit the track at speed with hot laps being greasy. I felt good in the car and we knew what to do to make it better. Then we got rained out, which was a bummer."

Scelzi ventured to Granite City Motor Park in Sauk Rapids, Minn., on Saturday for the GMC Select Dealers of Minnesota Presents the World of Outlaws. He qualified fourth quickest to begin his debut at the dirt track. That lined him up on the outside of the front row of a heat race.

"We were challenging for the lead and ended up taking the lead in the heat," he said. "All of a sudden we really, really fell off. We came in and found out the right rear bleeder wasn't turned on so that was an error on our part. It caused the right rear tire to grow substantially and we fell to fifth."

Scelzi advanced a position to finish fifth in the qualifier, which started him on the inside of the fifth row for the main event.

"We felt pretty good in the qualifier," he said. "Then in the feature I was running around eighth or ninth. We were right there running the top. When (Carson) Macedo and James (McFadden) got together I had nowhere to go. It was either smoke them or hit the wall and stop. I got into the fence and stopped. Luckily nothing was damaged and we restarted at the back. At that point it was hard to pass and we ended up 14th."

The mid-race incident hampered the finishing result for Scelzi, but he is excited to return to the Dobmeier No. 13 during a trio of races at Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., June 20-22.

Up next is a weekend in his family owned car this Friday at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, Calif., for the 35th annual Pombo/Sargent Classic and Saturday at Placerville Speedway in Placerville, Calif., for the 30th annual Dave Bradway Jr. Race with the King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series. Scelzi enters the weekend leading the championship standings.

"We won the last Pombo/Sargent Classic in the Roth car and we were running third when we broke at the last Dave Bradway Jr race so we've run well at both events," he said. "We want to win the points championship, but we're trying to win races. If we do that the points deal will take care of itself."

Brian Brown Posts Podium at Knoxville as World of Outlaws Weekend Nears

 

Inside Line Promotions - KNOXVILLE, Iowa (June 8, 2021) - Brian Brown heads into the Brownells Big Guns Bash on the heels of his fifth podium finish of the season at Knoxville Raceway last Saturday.

Brown earned a World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series win at Knoxville Raceway on June 14, 2019, and is looking to duplicate his success this weekend.


June 5 - Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa - Qualifying: 2; Heat race: 1 (6); Feature: 3 (3).

"It started off during the day with the National Hall of Fame induction ceremony," Brown said. "One of our own, Don Lamberti, who is the founder of Casey's and a huge supporter of our team, was inducted. We were excited to be there for him. It was an awesome class and everybody was very deserving. I was lucky to be able to race with Jeff Swindell, Greg Hodnett and Tim Shaffer.

"At the track we started off the night second quick. We started sixth in our heat and won it. We tried something in the feature we hadn't really tried before that we wanted to try. It wasn't as good as our core package. We have that out of the way and off the table."

UP NEXT - Friday and Saturday at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, for the Brownells Big Guns Bash with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series

"We're looking forward to getting qualified well and hopefully that can set us up for two successful nights," Brown said. "We're definitely where we need to be. At the end of last year after The One and Only event we sat down and said we're not good enough to beat those guys consistently. What do we need to change on the cars to make the better? I feel like we've made them better. Every single night we've tried some things. Some things have worked and some things haven't.

"I feel like we're done testing at this point. We've done that up to this point. Every time we've hit the track it's been with some things different to learn as much as we could. Now you have to settle in on a core package and try to make that work, tinkering with that core package rather than making wholesale changes."

SEASON STATS -


25 races, 3 wins, 6 top fives, 10 top 10s, 16 top 15s, 22 top 20s
