Lincoln Speedway’s Ice Breaker Foiled by Mother Nature, Postponed to February 27

 


Abbottstown, PA (February 17, 2021) – Lincoln Speedway was forced to postpone their annual Ice Breaker due to the forces of Mother Nature. With the low temperatures and snow already on the ground with more forecasted to come, track officials made the decision to delay racing at the speedway until next weekend.

“We know that fans and race teams look forward to the Ice Breaker all off-season, there’s nothing better than seeing the shiny new racecars on the track for the first time.” said General Manager, Jerry Parrish. “Everyone at Lincoln Speedway is excited to get the season started, and we look forward to getting the Ice Breaker in as soon as Mother Nature cooperates.”

The Ice Breaker is now scheduled for Saturday, February 27 at 2:00pm. Last year the Ice Breaker was a huge success with a great turn out of fans and race cars with Danny Dietrich earning his second career Opening Day victory. The Ice Breaker has only been run in February 14 of the last 25 years. The first attempt at a February race came in 1994. That year the race was pushed back four weeks and a day due to weather. Following the first attempt the track ran successfully in February for six years. If Lincoln would have been able to get the race in this coming Saturday, they would join 1999 as the earliest the track has opened. In 1999 Lincoln Speedway held their opener on February 20, which is the earliest the track has opened. Fred Rahmer sits atop the win list of Opening Day wins at Lincoln with seven.

Located in Abbottstown, PA, the 3/8th-mile high-banked clay oval has been a staple in professional auto racing for over 60 years. The Pigeon Hills oval is one of several famed Central Pennsylvania race tracks which represent the toughest, most competitive weekly sprint car racing in the nation. A family fun night to be had by all who visit the famed Lincoln Speedway!

Aaron Reutzel scores Screven’s Winter Freeze All Star finale for $10,000


 SYLVANIA, Georgia (January 30, 2021) - Although no longer a full-time traveler with “America’s Series,” three-time All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 champion, Aaron Reutzel, picked up right where he left off in 2020 and maneuvered his way back to All Star victory lane, this time scoring $10,000 in Screven Motor Speedway’s Winter Freeze All Star finale on Saturday, January 30. The Clute, Texas-native earned his triumph from the outside of row two, forced to outduel Wooster, Ohio’s Sheldon Haudenschild, all before fending off a late charge by Neptune City, New Jersey’s Kyle Reinhardt. The Sugarlands Shine Southern Tour presented by Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts victory bumped Reutzel’s All Star win total to 37; his first at Screven Motor Speedway.


“I can’t thank the entire Roth Motorsports team enough for allowing Dylan (Buswell) and I to come on board and bring our package with us. They took a big risk and we appreciate everything they’ve done for us,” Aaron Reutzel said in Screven victory lane. “We struggled a little bit in Arizona, but we took some time during the week to think about some things. We made a few fine changes and now I feel right at home. Everyone has done such a great job and I can’t say how excited I am enough.”


Taking off from the outside-pole position, Sheldon Haudenschild was the early leader, forced to withstand a caution on the initial start, as well as an ensuing red flag incident, all before the main event could officially get underway. It did not take long for Haudenschild to escape to a lengthy advantage, stretching his gap over KCP Racing’s Gio Scelzi to a near-straightaway by lap 15. It was at that time when Reutzel started to come alive on the bottom of the speedway, first working by Scelzi for the runner-up spot on lap 18.


Caution flags appeared again on lap 20 setting up a single file restart with Reutzel on the tail tank of Haudenschild. Keeping his focus on the bottom of the speedway, Reutzel stalked Haudenschild for four circuits, eventually making his move on lap 24 when the Stenhouse Jr Marshall Racing entry slipped up the track allowing Reutzel to squeeze through. Despite a few desperate attempts to regain the top spot, Haudenshild would eventually succumb to his own aggressiveness, spinning to a stop on lap 28.


Reutzel drove on to clinch the $10,000 payday, surviving one final caution on lap 33 and late pressure from 2021 All Star Circuit of Champions Rookie of the Year contender, Kyle Reinhardt.


Sam Hafertepe finished third on Saturday night, followed by a hard-charging Donny Schatz, who climbed from 21st to fourth after winning the evening’s B-Main, and Justin Peck. Schatz was forced to compete in the evening’s B-Main after missing the scales following his respective heat race.


“I really wanted to race Sheldon (Haudenschild) in traffic,” Reutzel added. “I wanted to catch him off guard and think I was just a lapped car that got by him. I knew on that restart that if I stuck my nose under him, he would assume that rubber was coming on the bottom. I tried to just hang back until the groove came in a little bit better for us, but the time came where I had to pull the trigger. I went for it and he didn’t have time to shut the door on us.”


The All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will enjoy an off day on Sunday, January 31, before returning to Sugarlands Shine Southern Tour presented by Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts competition on Monday evening, February 1, at East Bay Raceway Park in Tampa, Florida. “America’s Series” will face-off for two straight nights at East Bay chasing a pair of $6,000 top prizes.

Donny Schatz opens Sugarlands Shine Southern Tour with $8,000 victory at Screven


 SYLVANIA, Georgia (January 29, 2021) - Ten-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion, Donny Schatz, etched his name in sprint car racing history books yet again, this time by claiming the first round of the inaugural Sugarlands Shine Southern Tour presented by Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts at Screven Motor Speedway in Sylvania, Georgia. Schatz, who now owns 19-career All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victories, scored his triumph from the outside of row two, eventually working by Indianapolis, Indiana’s Tyler Courtney to take control on lap 18. The Fargo, North Dakota-native earned $8,000 for his efforts, also solidifying a first-ever All Star win in Sylvania.


“It’s great to be back racing, first and foremost,” Donny Schatz said in Screven victory lane, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Carquest Auto Parts/Curb Records/Ford Performance/No. 15 sprint car. “Hats off to this entire Carquest team. These guys have been digging and working as hard as they can to get the car better. All of these preseason races are great for us because it gives us an opportunity to try some things. I just tried to go where the car in front of me wasn’t and it all worked out.”


Before Schatz took command on lap 18, it was a shootout for the top spot. Former ASCS national champion, Sam Hafertepe, Jr., took command from the outside-pole position to lead the first two circuits, eventually overtaken by Wooster, Ohio’s Sheldon Haudenschild with a wicked slider through turns three and four on lap three. Haudenschild’s campaign at the front of the field was short-lived, as the pilot of the Stenhouse Jr Marshall Racing No. 17 was forced to spin to avoid involvement in an incident involving lap cars; Sam Hafertepe, Jr. inherited control on lap seven.


All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 rookie contender, Tyler Courtney was next to throw his hat into the ring, making his move around Hafertepe to earn the race lead on lap 15. Courtney was a threat on a few attempts prior to his official takeover, but Hafertepe was able to fend off the charge.


Meanwhile, Donny Schatz lurked just behind the pair of front-runners. Utilizing the very bottom groove of Screven Motor Speedway, the ten-time WoO champ followed Courtney by Hafertepe on lap 16, only to miss a slide job attempt on Courtney on lap 17. Schatz redeemed himself the next circuit and squeezed by Courtney at the exit of turn four to take control.


“We knew the top was going to be good. I just tried to find a line that was going to work the best for us,” Schatz continued. “This surface changed so much over the course of the race and it actually got a lot slicker than I thought it would. It really came in nice for me through the middle and bottom. You could really go anywhere.”


Aaron Reutzel finished second on Friday night after a late move around Courtney on lap 24, followed by Tyler Courtney, Carson Short, and Sam Hafertepe, Jr.


Screven Motor Speedway’s Winter Freeze XI will continue on Saturday evening, January 30, with a second, full program featuring the All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1. The two-day Sugarlands Shine Southern Tour presented by Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts finale will award a $10,000 top prize.

Hahn Prevails in ASCS Sooner Competition While O’Neil and Elliott Thrill The Modifieds

 


Bryan Hulbert – LONGDALE, Okla. (October 24, 2020) Wrapping up the second night of action at Longdale Speedway, a total of 67 drivers graced the clay of the three-eights-mile oval on Saturday night between the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region presented by Smiley’s Racing Products, USRA Modifieds, and Limited Modifieds with Blake Hahn topping Sprint Car action while the Modifieds each came down to the final 100’ feet to determine the winner.

Three wide for the lead on the start with the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region presented by Smiley’s Racing Products, Blake Hahn rolled to the top spot as Whit Gastineau and Brandon Anderson battled for second. Advantage to the No. 55b, the chase was stalled as the caution lights came while working Lap 3. Back to the last fully completed lap on the restart, Hahn pulled the field with Anderson keeping pace for several laps.

Into traffic by Lap 9, the DriveWFX.com No. 52 continued to pull away before the red flag flew working Lap 13 when Rick Wright, Jr. went upside down in turn three. Wright was ok.

Back to green, the laps ticked by with Hahn pulling away to a comfortable victory over Brandon Anderson. Rolling the cushion through the final half of the A-Feature, Jeremy Campbell shot from 12th to third with Sean McClelland in pursuit. Jeff Stasa completed the top five.

Red on the start of the USRA Modified A-Feature, the restart saw Derek Ramirez take off with the lead. Pacing the first three revolutions, Minnesota’s Lucas Schott soon rolled by the No. 4r. Looking like the No. 69 was untouchable, the race went under red again on Lap 12 for RC Whitwell who had been running third before the car caught fire.

Moving Jake O’Neil into the mix the Mesilla Valley Transportation No. 0 took over second as Ramirez pulled to the infield shortly after going back to green. Keeping pace with Schott, a misstep by O’Neil gave the No. 69 plenty of room to breath as the laps clicked by.

Moving to under five to go, O’Neil trailed by just over 1.5-seconds. Running through the cushion in turn four, Schott’s advantage was cut drastically with the race rolling into the final two laps.

Just under a second to spare at the white flag, Schott powered to the back stretch with victory in sight. Missing the line through the third turn, Lucas again rolled over the cushion. Working the hub off the final turn, O’Neil buried the throttle off the final turn to win by 0.059-seonds. Fighting back from engine woes on Friday, Lance Mari crossed third with Jon Herring, Jr. and Joe Duvall making up the top five.

To the green in the Limited Modifieds, James Lott took the lead with Timmy Johnson and Daylon Bergeron in pursuit. Holding pace over the field until Lap 9, Friday night’s winner Brandon Kenny took over the top spot. Working through numerous cautions through the rest of the A-Feature, Kenny held off the charge of Robert Elliott. Final caution with two laps to run, the restart put Race Elliott in the hunt.

Working to the bottom of the three-eighths-mile oval, Elliott pulled even for the lead as the pair raced to the white flag. Trying to block the charge through the final two turns, Kenny pushed up the track entering the fourth turn; giving Race Elliott a clear shot. Wheel to wheel at the line, it was the No. 09r by 0.001-seconds. Brandon Kenny, Daylon Bergeron, Timmy Johnson, and Jeffrey Kaup made up the top five.

The American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region presented by Smiley’s Racing Products races next at Creek County Speedway for the Fall Fling on Friday, October 30 and Saturday, October 31.

HIGHLIGHT HAUD: Sheldon Haudenschild Excites With Kokomo Win In His 300th Start Logan Schuchart closes points gap to Brad Sweet entering the season finale at the World of Outlaws Last Call




 KOKOMO, IN — Oct. 24, 2020 — A raise of his NOS Energy Drink can to the crowd and a delighted sip from it was all Sheldon Haudenschild needed to do to acknowledge his career milestone Saturday night at Kokomo Speedway.

The Wooster, OH driver claimed his seventh win of the 2020 World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series season in his 300th start. He entered the year with seven wins in total through his three years as a full-time driver.

“I feel like having the crew and the team behind you gets your confidence to a whole nother level,” Haudenschild said. “I feel like I’m just getting a glimpse of what Donny (Schatz) has had for a long time. Just trying to keep the same guys together and keeping the team together and growing as a team. Not just as myself. That’s been my biggest goal this year, just work good with my guys and work on myself as a driver and just try to get the whole package together.”

To claim the win in the Series first time back to Kokomo since 2015, he had to beat the driver he mention – 10-time Series champion Donny Schatz.

The two started on the front row for the 40-lap Feature, and each had a milestone to try and achieve. Haudenschild was looking to win in his 300th career start, while Schatz was on the hunt for his 300th career win.

Haudenschild wasn’t shy about the onslaught he was willing to put on to achieve that milestone either. While mixed in a three-way battle for the lead on the final lap of the DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash, Haudenschild threw the slide job of the year on Aaron Reutzel and Schatz to steal the Dash win in the final corner.

That set him up as the early favorite to conquer the quarter-mile speedway for 40 laps. And when the Feature commenced, he didn’t let that theory down. Haudenschild led the opening lap and pulled away from Schatz in the early stage of the race.

However, Haudenschild was already in heavy traffic by Lap 6. That allowed Schatz to reel in the NOS Energy Drink #17. While Haudenschild tried to navigate his way through traffic around the high side of the track, Schatz worked the bottom.

Schatz snuck underneath Haudenschild on Lap 8 and the two raced side by side for about the entire circuit. With a slower car blocking Haudenschild’s lane off Turn 4 and Schatz gifted clean air on the bottom, the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing CARQUEST #15 pulled ahead to officially take the lead on Lap 9.

With Schatz out front, Haudenschild broke out his notebook and pen and went to school. He studied what Schatz was doing; what lines he was running. Haudenschild could make the most speed up top, but at times he overstayed his welcome along the cushion. At times he bounced off of it, allowing Schatz to pull further away.

After three cautions, Haudenschild had gathered enough notes to put his newfound knowledge to the test.

On the restart with 17 laps to go, Haudenschild placed his car up high in Turns 1 and 2 to build a run that would rocket him down the backstretch. He used that momentum to sneak underneath Schatz the next corner and drag race with him down the front stretch. When they found their way back to Turns 1 and 2, Haudenschild and Schatz ran side by side, inches apart, in perfect tandem through the corner.

They remained that way down the back stretch before Haudenschild made better work of the low lane than Schatz could of the top and reclaimed the lead on Lap 25.

“I got the lead there early and Donny got by us,” Haudenschild said. “I just tried to watch Donny there. You can learn a lot from watching him. He is so smooth and makes it look so easy. He was just running a little bit higher and keeping his speed up. I kind of slowed her down in (turns) three and four and just started to hit the bottom a little slower and started to get off the corner. I got under him and ran beside him for a couple laps there and was able to clear him.”

Once Haudenschild reclaimed the lead from Schatz, he never relinquished it. Schatz maintained the runner-up finish – his second podium in a row.

“He was better than we were,” Schatz said about Haudenschild. “He made the top in (turns) one and two work. I wasn’t going to do it. He was up the fence and it just wasn’t me. I tried to make something else work and he got the best of us on that. That’s what got the win.”

While Haudenschild pulled away with the victory in the final five laps, reigning champion and current points leader Brad Sweet captured most of the attention. He was in position to finish fourth, but a cloud of smoke, laced with oil, began to billow from his engine. The smoke blew the entire way around the track and worsened as he went. Sweet slowed and fell to an 11th-place finish.

With two races remaining this season, that helped Schatz, Haudenschild and Logan Schuchart, who finished third after starting ninth, chip away at Sweet’s lead.

“I'd liked to put pressure on him (Sweet),” said Schuchart, who is currently second in points. “He has a good lead right now. Those guys are fast every night. I’m just proud of what this team did this year and if we can put some pressure on him in these last two races and make something happen. We run good at Charlotte and I think the last time we were here at Kokomo we were lap traffic. So, I just want to keep growing with this Drydene performance products team.”

Entering the Nov. 6-7 season ending World of Outlaws Last Call at The Dirt Track at Charlotte, Sweet now holds a 46-point lead over Schuchart, a 64-point lead over Schatz and a 128-point lead over Haudenschild. And for the team championship, Kasey Kahne Racing holds a 30-point lead over Jason Johnson Racing.

Mallett Rides Successful Winter Nationals to Sixth-Place Finish in ASCS National Tour Standings




 Inside Line Promotions - MESQUITE, Texas (Oct. 21, 2020) - Jordon Mallett qualified for the feature during both nights of the 47th annual Winter Nationals last weekend when he put a stamp on the 2020 Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour season at Devil's Bowl Speedway.

Mallett finished seventh on Friday and 17th during the Saturday night finale. The results locked up the sixth position in the ASCS National Tour championship standings, which is a three-spot improvement on last year's ninth-place finish.


"We had a decent weekend and it helped us secure sixth in the standings, which is a pretty cool deal," he said. "I'm kind of glad it's over and now we can now look toward 2021 and try to improve even more."

Mallett began Friday night by winning a heat race from the third position. That secured the third starting spot for the A Main. Mallett struggled with an ill-handling race car for the first half of the race and fell outside of the top 10 before rallying back for a seventh-place finish.

"We had a fast race car right off the trailer in the heat and for whatever reason we just struggled the first half of the feature," he said. "We rallied back forward, but it's a 25-lap race and we need to be good the entire time if we want to be contending for wins."

Mallett again showed speed early in the night on Saturday by finishing where he started - second - in a heat race and locking himself directly into the feature in the 11th starting position.

Mallett relied on his notebook for the feature setup, which was based on only a handful of career starts at the unique oval. However, he realized in the first handful of laps that he was lacking speed off the turns and he salvaged a 17th-place showing. The top-20 finish was the 18 th of the season for the Greenbrier, Ark., native.

"We were able to lock straight into the show from the heat race, which is always a good thing when you're not running B Mains," he said. "We needed more gear in the car to be able to get off the turns better in the A Main, but we now know what to do when track conditions change like that going forward."

Mallett was happy with the way his team was able to persevere to finish sixth in the standings despite the limited races this season because of COVID-19. With his team making the change to Triple X chassis for the 2020 season he wasn't sure how long the transition would take to be comfortable, especially with limited races to make it happen. However, Mallett credits the support system and quality of the equipment as a reason he was able to find success.

"We were able to go all season without any DNFs and completing laps is really the only way to learn and grow," he said. "In a year like this one it's important to feel comfortable and it's reassuring when you've got folks like Triple X willing to lend a hand or ear whenever needed. To finish sixth in our first year with them against the ASCS National Tour competition is nothing to be upset about by any means and I'm looking forward to more years running their stuff."

Price Battles Throughout Devil's Bowl Winter Nationals




 Inside Line Promotions - MESQUITE, Texas (Oct. 21, 2020) - Robbie Price highlighted a challenging weekend at the 47th annual Winter Nationals with a 23rd-place finish Friday night at Devil's Bowl Speedway.

"It was a tough weekend," he said. "The way the year has gone for us I guess I can't be surprised, but overall we just were not good."


With 39 cars in attendance for the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour season finale, Price began Friday night by advancing one position in a heat race to finish fifth. He then won a B Main from third to secure the 18 th starting position in the feature.

Price passed a few cars in the opening laps before he made contact with the frontstretch guardrail on Lap 3. He sustained damage to his sprint car as a result of the contact and decided to pull in to avoid any further problems. He was credited with finishing 23rd.

"I felt like we were decent early in the night, but I just made a mistake in the feature and ended our night early," he said. "Bad decisions and mistakes kind of sums up my whole season and it's just something I need to get better at limiting if I want to be successful."

Saturday night saw Price finish where she started - fifth - in a heat race and he was relegated to a B Main for the second consecutive night. He was running fourth late in the race when he overdrove the car trying to gain the final transfer position, which dropped him to fifth as a result.

"I maybe should've been a little more aggressive early in the night to not have to run the B Main, but then again we were just a little off again," he said. "We had a late restart in the B Main and I knew I needed to make a move if I wanted to transfer. I just overdrove the car and it ended up costing me."

Oct. 16 - Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas - Heat race: 5 (6); B Main: 1 (3); Feature: 23 (18).

Williamson Makes Pair of A Mains to Finish Off First ASCS National Tour Campaign




 Inside Line Promotions - MESQUITE, Texas (Oct. 21, 2020) - Garet Williamson wanted to end his first season with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour on a positive note.

That's all any rookie can hope for while racing with a national series, especially after posting pretty good numbers over what has been a difficult season.


Although last weekend wasn't quite what Williamson was looking for, the Bryant Paver Motorsports driver did polish off his first ASCS season by making both features at the tricky Devil's Bowl Speedway. Williamson finished 16th and 19th, respectively, in feature competition during the 47th annual Winter Nationals.

"Obviously, we wanted better results, but for the first time at Devil's Bowl, I'll take it," he said. "The track is super difficult. I talked to a couple of drivers during the weekend and they said it's a place you need to get a lot of laps at. It has a hill on both ends of the track that makes it super tricky and takes some getting used to.

"I will take that into next year when I go there. You can't get down on yourself when you don't feel right and you just need to make more laps and to get comfortable there."

Getting more experience was the focus for Williamson throughout the weekend. He made it through his heat race Friday night by advancing from sixth to fourth, but was forced to run the B Main to transfer to the main event Saturday.

Only a handful of drivers could make moves and pass cars in both feature events. It was even more difficult in the back of the field and Williamson made the most of another experience-gaining weekend with the series.

It was a pretty good season for Williamson, who finished with three top 10s in 13 Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour feature starts. He placed ninth in the final point standings.

"I think it was a pretty good year for us," the 20-year-old said. "If you take out the first part of our year in Arizona and California, I think we are almost in the top five. I also think if we go out there with our crew chief, Chad (Cypert), I think we definitely had a top-five car in points.

"I will take it. We had some good runs and for our first year we learned a ton. Going into next year all the tracks won't be first-time tracks. It will be good to go places a second time and I think that will help a lot."

Williamson's 2020 campaign isn't over. He is going back to California for season-ending events at Stockton Dirt Track, Keller Auto Speedway and Merced Speedway before racing in Arizona Thanksgiving weekend.

"I had a lot of fun at the beginning of the year, but we got our heads kicked in a little bit," he said. "I didn't have Chad and I didn't have everything I do now. I think we will be better our second go-around.

"Those guys are super good out there. It's always cowboy up and you've got to be on the wheel. I think it makes you a better driver so I'm pumped up. I think a lot of those tracks fit my driving style where you've got to be on the wheel."

The next race is Nov. 7 at Stockton Dirt Track in Stockton, Calif., for the 37th annual Tribute to Gary Patterson.

Oct. 16 - Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas - Heat race: 4 (6); Feature: 16 (14).

Hagar Earns Runner-Up Result at Riverside International Speedway




 Inside Line Promotions - WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. (Oct. 21, 2020) - Derek Hagar recorded his 12th podium finish of the season last Saturday at Riverside International Speedway where he piloted a 305ci winged sprint car for Todd Bradford during the Jimmy Huffman Memorial.

"Todd is a good friend and a good customer," he said. "He was on vacation last week and asked if I'd drive his car. We got it ready for the weekend. He has nice equipment and it was an honor to drive for him and give him a good top-five finish."


Hagar began the night by advancing from his third starting position to a runner-up result during a heat race.

"We had some issues with the motor not wanting to run when it was cold," he said. "We got passed and fell to fifth in the heat race. Then we worked our way back to second. They don't do passing points so that put us starting eighth in the feature.

"We made quick work and got to fourth quickly. We kept having cautions and finally had a long run. We got to second with about five laps to go. The leader, Howard Moore, was gone. I'm not sure we had anything for him with a yellow, but I wish we had clean track quicker. I felt like I started to run him down with a handful of laps to go, but we ran out of time."

Hagar's second-place showing was his fourth runner-up result of the season.

He plans on taking this weekend off before wrapping up the season at Riverside International Speedway during the 12th annual USCS Flip Flop 50 and USCS Fall Nationals on Oct. 30-31 with the USCS Series.

Kerry Madsen Hustles From 22nd to Fourth During Jason Johnson Classic




 Inside Line Promotions - ELDON, Mo. (Oct. 20, 2020) - Kerry Madsen put on a show last Saturday when he charged from 22nd to a fourth-place result during the Jason Johnson Classic at Lake Ozark Speedway.

It marked the Killer Instinct Crossbow sponsored driver's sixth top five of the season with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series and the 16th top 10 in the last 19 races for Big Game Motorsports.


The weekend began on Friday at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., where Madsen qualified eighth quickest. A runner-up result in a heat race advanced Madsen into the dash. He placed seventh to line up on the inside of the fourth row for the A Main.

"We went out late and qualified just good enough to get us on the front row in a heat," he said. "We had a good run and ended up in the top two to make the dash. We weren't great in the dash for some reason. I thought we were pretty good in the main event, but the track was pretty one groove. It wasn't a typical Lakeside of being up on the wall. The premier line was around the bottom. The car came on good at the end and we ended up seventh."

Madsen's seventh-place result was his 40th top 10 of the season.

The team ventured to Lake Ozark Speedway on Saturday. Madsen timed in 21 st quickest and a sixth-place run in a heat race relegated him to the Last Chance Showdown. A runner-up result garnered a transfer into the back of the main event and Madsen hustled his way from 22nd to fourth during the 41-lap feature.

"We drew a late number for qualifying and the track lost a bunch of time, plus my laps weren't great," he said. "Then I ended up sixth in the heat so I had to run the LCS. It was almost a blessing because we got to work on our car a little bit. We changed a little bit of stuff and the car was awesome in the A Main. I drove right up through there. I was really good in the middle of turns one and two and the top in turns three and four. I was really happy with that run. At some point you're gonna start deep in the field. You have to drive as hard as you can. A lot of times you're just hoping to get a top 10. To really blast up there and get a top five is pretty nice."

The strong performance also earned the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars.

Next up for Big Game Motorsports is a World of Outlaws race on Saturday at Kokomo Speedway in Kokomo, Ind. Madsen finished fourth during his most recent visit to the track in June 2015. He also placed fifth in 2014 and ninth in 2012 among his five career starts at Kokomo Speedway.

QUICK RESULTS -

Oct. 16 - Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan. - Qualifying: 8; Heat race: 2 (2); Dash: 7 (6); Feature: 7 (7).

Sides Returning to Kokomo Speedway Saturday for First Time Since 2015




 Inside Line Promotions - ELDON, Mo. (Oct. 20, 2020) - The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series is down to two weekends of racing remaining this season and Jason Sides is aiming to finish on a high note.

The penultimate event is this Saturday at Kokomo Speedway in Kokomo, Ind., where Sides most recently competed in June 2015. His best result during a handful of starts at Kokomo Speedway with the World of Outlaws was a 13 th-place showing in 2013.


"It's like a non-wing track," he said. "It's more like Haubstadt, kind of small. A lot of times when we've been there it's been up on the fence. I was just talking to some people the other day and heard they changed the dirt on it and it's around the bottom now, which would be good."

Sides raced in a pair of Outlaws events last weekend beginning on Friday at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan. He qualified 19th quickest, ended sixth in a heat race, won the Last Chance Showdown and advanced from 21st to 17th in the A Main.

"We didn't get qualified where we needed to be," he said. "We changed a few things and ran the LCS. We were really good by ourselves out front. In the feature behind those cars we were really, really tight. On the start we couldn't get it turned and lost a few spots. From that point on we realized we had to stay out of dirty air. I just did my own thing to stay out from behind other people."

The weekend concluded on Saturday at Lake Ozark Speedway, which hosted the Jason Johnson Classic. Sides timed in 16th quickest. A fifth-place result in a heat race locked him into the main event.

"The track was a little choppy and had a curb in turns three and four," he said. "In the feature we didn't tighten up enough and it was dead slick. They had reworked it right before and the racing lane went right to the top. Once you get lapped you don't want to mess up anyone's race so I rode on the bottom staying out of the way."

Sides finished 19th.

QUICK RESULTS -

Oct. 16 - Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan. - Qualifying: 19; Heat race: 6 (5); B Main: 1 (1); Feature: 17 (21).

Oct. 17 - Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo. - Qualifying: 16; Heat race: 5 (4); Feature: 19 (20).

Dominic Scelzi Excited to Make Debut at Kokomo Speedway This Saturday




 Inside Line Promotions - ELDON, Mo. (Oct. 20, 2020) - Saturday will mark another new track for Dominic Scelzi to check off the list.

Scelzi and Roth Motorsports invade Kokomo Speedway in Kokomo, Ind., for the second-to-last World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series event of the season.


"I'm excited to get an opportunity to race at Kokomo Speedway," he said. "We're putting a new car together so hopefully we can have more of a balance."

Scelzi made his debut with Roth Motorsports' World of Outlaws team last weekend during a pair of races in the Midwest. It began on Friday at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., where Scelzi made his first appearance. He timed in 25th quickest in qualifying, placed seventh in a heat race and ended fourth in the Last Chance Showdown to transfer into the back of the main event. Scelzi capped the night by maneuvering from 24th to 19th.

The team then headed to Lake Ozark Speedway on Saturday for the Jason Johnson Classic. Scelzi qualified 18th quickest, finished sixth in a heat race, produced a third-place run in the Last Chance Showdown and rallied from 23rd to 18th in the A Main.

"I think for us we're wading through all the stuff the team has," he said. "There is a lot of different stuff than the California team, which I drove for last year. We're trying to figure out what we need. We changed so much stuff in the two nights because we were extremely tight and didn't have good drive. When we were against moisture in the track the left front was off the ground. You get off the moisture and you get stalled out. Hopefully the new car we're putting together this week will put us in a good position on Saturday night at Kokomo.

"Dennis and Teresa Roth and Todd Ventura put in a lot for this team and I want to put together a solid night with a great result for them. The goal is to consistently run up front during the final couple of races this year."

QUICK RESULTS -

Oct. 16 - Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan. - Qualifying: 25; Heat race: 7 (7); B Main: 4 (5); Feature: 19 (24).

Crockett Captures ASCS National Tour Season Finale to Extend Winning Streak to 25 Years




 Inside Line Promotions - MESQUITE, Texas (Oct. 20, 2020) - Roger Crockett released a huge sigh of relief in Victory Lane on Saturday when Devil's Bowl Speedway hosted the 47th annual Winter Nationals.

Crockett captured the marquee Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event for the second straight year, which marked his first win of the season and 10 th career with the series. That also extended his winning streak to 25 consecutive years dating back to 1996 - Crockett's second season racing a sprint car.


"It's a huge relief to finally win," he said. "It wasn't unexpected, but after we'd been so close at some big races it was like we finally did it. I never thought it'd be such a relief to win a race. It's easy to be spoiled when you've been fortunate to win a lot of races."

Crockett kicked off the final doubleheader of the ASCS National Tour season on Friday when he placed fourth in a heat race, won a B Main and advanced from 17th to 12th in the main event.

"I got a very bad start in the heat race and missed the bottom in turn one," he said. "We lost spots and just weren't great. We started in the front of the B Main. Our lap times were extremely good out in clean air, but as soon as we got in traffic again starting deep in the A Main we were not good."

Crockett changed a couple of parts for the finale on Saturday and it paid off. He advanced from fourth to second place in a heat race. He made the feature redraw and Crockett got the No. 2 to line up on the outside of the front row for the 30-lap main event.

"I got a really good start and darn near got away with the win in the heat," he said. "Then we got the good redraw and the jump early in the feature. Our car was really, really good. I came upon two lapped cars battling each other. One of them went up in front of me. I had to get off the gas a little bit and Matt (Covington) was able to capitalize."

Crockett led the first nine laps before Covington took over the top spot in traffic. The duo swapped the lead once again on Lap 17 and Crockett led the remainder of the race.

"After I had got passed we had a clear track for five or six laps," he said. "I was able to track Matt down and get to him before we got back to traffic. We got through traffic better after that. Ultimately I didn't get held up or had to slow down too much. I was able to finish the thing off.

"I also want to note our appreciation to CRC for being on the car for the weekend and we always appreciate Shelby Park Marketing for their support."

The win gave Crockett at least one ASCS National Tour triumph during each of the last four years. It also secured a career-best runner-up result in the championship standings.

Oct. 16 - Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas - Heat race: 4 (3); B Main: 1 (2); Feature: 12 (17).

Dover Scores Two Top Fives at Devil's Bowl During Winter Nationals




 Inside Line Promotions - MESQUITE, Texas (Oct. 20, 2020) - Jack Dover was consistent throughout the 47th annual Winter Nationals last weekend at Devil's Bowl Speedway.

Dover delivered a top-five outing each night during the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour season finale, giving him 21 top fives in 29 races this year.


The two-day show began on Friday with Dover winning a heat race after lining up on the outside of the front row. That earned a spot into the feature redraw and Dover pulled the No. 2 to garner the front row for the A Main.

"We went out and won our heat race by five seconds so I knew we were pretty good," he said. "It's hard to judge because we started out front. We redrew the No. 2 for the feature. With Sam Hafertepe Jr. starting on the front it wasn't going to be easy. I figured I'd ride in second and catch him in traffic. It never came to that. We had a late restart and Scott Bogucki was able to get by us on the bottom in turns three and four.

"I was very pleased to run third with those guys considering we hardly run with them. I felt like my car needed some adjustments and a gear change. We did that the next night and the car was way better."

The third-place effort was the best of the season during ASCS National Tour action for Dover. It also marked his 16th podium of the year.

The stout weekend wrapped up on Saturday with Dover maneuvering from fourth to third place in a heat race. That lined him up on the outside of the seventh row for the main event and he charged forward 10 positions to end fourth. It was the second-most positions gained by any driver in the feature.

"They gave us a really good track both nights," he said. "It was a little too good. There wasn't much passing and everybody was fast in the heat race. We got by one car and were all over second place, but the track wasn't wide enough to make a move on them.

"The track widened out for the feature. If you could hit the bottom good it had a really good groove. The top was good as well so there were two lanes of racing. I picked them off one by one. I ran up top and the bottom. We slowly worked our way up there. To get as far forward as we moved without any yellows was impressive. We're definitely going to take those notes for when we go back there."
