ST. HELENA, Calif. (October 11, 2021) – It was a wild weekend on the West Coast for St. Helena, California’s Rico Abreu, and although the recent All Star Circuit of Champions 4-Crown Nationals champion was able to enjoy his return to California soil, there was little time to relax, as Abreu and Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing had to quickly prepare for a stout weekend at Keller Auto Speedway.

Abreu, driver of the Rowdy Energy/Curb Records/Lucas Oil Products/Wiser Agency/Salty’s BBQ/Self Made Racing/XYZ Machine/No. 24 sprint car, entered each of the programs hosted at Keller Auto Speedway on October 8-9, first entering the Sprint Car Challenge Tour’s 36th Annual Cotton Classic on Friday, followed by the King of the West/NARC Morrie Williams Memorial/Kenny Takeuchi Tribute on Saturday. 

When the dust settled in Hanford, Abreu found himself with a pair of top-five outcomes, opening action with a fourth-place score in the Cotton Classic on Friday, quickly followed by another fourth-place score in the first of two KWS/NARC features on Saturday. Abreu tried his best to finish the weekend three-for-three within the top-five, but the second feature inversion made it difficult to overcome; Abreu went on to finish 14th after starting 16th.

“It was a fun weekend in Hanford and I’m proud of our results, but all eyes are on the Trophy Cup,” Rico Abreu said. “We made some Trophy Cup history in 2019, so it’s our goal to do that again.”

Rico Abreu and Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing will continue their 2021 campaign with the Abreu Vineyards Trophy Cup presented by Rudeen Racing at Tulare’s Thunderbowl Raceway on October 21-23. The three-day blockbuster will feature three complete programs each awarding $4,000 to the main event winner. The weekend’s overall points champion will receive a $15,000 bonus. 

Certainly no stranger to Tulare’s Trophy Cup, Abreu was the 2019 event champion, actually sweeping the entire three-day program to earn $26,000. Abreu’s history making Trophy Cup performance had never been accomplished before. He won main events from fifth, tenth, and 17th.

The Madman on top for TSR in Port Royal’s Nittany Showdown opener

 

Dates: Friday and Saturday, October 8th-9th
Event: Nittany Showdown
Series: World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series
Track: Port Royal Speedway (Port Royal, Pennsylvania)
Kerry Madsen A-Main Finishes (Start):
Friday: 1st (2nd)
Saturday: 4th (6th)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (October 11, 2021) – Kerry Madsen’s return to the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing No. 14 sprint car resulted in all but perfection, earning back-to-back top-five finishes in Port Royal Speedway’s two-day Nittany Showdown including a victory to open the weekend on Friday, October 8. Impressive, nonetheless, the victory was all but a casual walk in the park, as Madsen was forced to withstand pressure from some of the best in the business including ten-time Series champion and TSR teammate, Donny Schatz, as well as Central Pennsylvania living legend, Lance Dewease.

Madsen, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing and the No. 14/Rush Truck Centers/Advance Auto Parts/Curb Records/Ford Performance/Digital Ally/Sage Fruit/FloRacing/Absolute Automation and Security/Hunt Brothers Pizza/Mobil 1/Carquest Auto Parts/J&J Auto Racing/No. 14 sprint car, led all 25 circuits of Friday’s $10,000-to-win main event, ultimately cashing in for his third World of Outlaws victory of the 2021 season. 

As mentioned, the victory was far from easy for the St Marys, New South Wales, Australia-native. In fact, Madsen’s final margin of victory over Lance Dewease was 0.081 seconds; the smallest of the World of Outlaws season.

“I can’t say enough about this Tony Stewart Racing team,” Madsen said in victory lane. “I was a little bit rusty to start the night, but they kept tuning on the car and got me more and more comfortable. I was really good early in the Feature and kind of protected more so in the second half. What a fantastic car, though.”

Although unable to match his Friday night performance, Kerry Madsen closed out the 2021 Nittany Showdown at Port Royal’s “Speed Palace” with a fourth-place score on Saturday, ultimately bumping ahead two spots after winning his respective heat race.

A future schedule for Kerry Madsen and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing has yet to be determined. Any news and information pertaining to Madsen’s schedule will be released when it becomes available.

Schatz hard charges to podium finish in Nittany Showdown finale

 

Dates: Friday and Saturday, October 8th-9th
Event: Nittany Showdown
Series: World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series
Track: Port Royal Speedway (Port Royal, Pennsylvania)
Donny Schatz A-Main Finishes (Start):
Friday: 4th (5th)

2021 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Championship Standings: Fourth | 9744 points (166 points behind championship leader, Brad Sweet)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (October 11, 2021) – Consistency is a word very much associated with Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing, and that is exactly what the team accomplished in Port Royal Speedway’s Nittany Showdown. Schatz, a ten-time Series champion and three-time main event winner thus far in 2021, finished fourth and third, respectively, in the two-day Port Royal invasion, actually challenging for a victory to open the weekend before capping his visit with a hard charge on Saturday. 

Although not victorious on Friday, Schatz, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing and the No. 15/Carquest Auto Parts/Curb Records/Ford Performance/Sage Fruit/Digital Ally/Advance Auto Parts/Rush Truck Centers/Absolute Automation and Security/Hunt Brothers Pizza/J&J Auto Racing/No. 15 sprint car, was in a winning position, pressuring TSR teammate, Kerry Madsen, persistently after a lap 15 restart. In fact, the Fargo, North Dakota-native took command from Madsen twice, but each time Madsen was able to turn the car back underneath Schatz. Schatz would eventually fade the fourth. 

The following evening, Schatz put on an impressive display to earn the evening’s Hard Charger Award, ultimately climbing from 12th to finish third in the $15,000-to-win Nittany Showdown finale. Schatz secured his podium placement with just two laps remaining.

“Pretty solid finish,” said Schatz. “We made some improvements and learned a lot in the Feature. We changed engines after the Heat Race and that was a good call. This team keeps digging and we’re getting better.”

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series will take a weekend off before resuming the 2021 season on Friday, October 22, with the FVP Platinum Battery Showdown at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kansas. Schatz will enter the one-day program fourth in the World of Outlaws driver standings, trailing defending champion and current point leader, Brad Sweet, by a certainly attainable 166 markers.

Zearfoss highlights Port Royal homecoming with impressive 12 spot rally Friday

 

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

JONESTOWN, Pa. (October 11, 2021) – The “Jonestown Jet” Brock Zearfoss was welcomed back to Port Royal Speedway with open arms over the weekend, joining his fellow World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series travelers for the two-day Nittany Showdown on Friday and Saturday, October 8-9. Awarding a total winner’s share equaling $25,000, the Nittany Showdown featured the World of Outlaws in Pennsylvania for the final time this season.

The two-day showcase resulted in a consistent effort for the Jonestown, Pennsylvania-native and former Port Royal Speedway track champion, eventually capping the two-day affair with an average finish of 12th, kicking off the weekend with an 11th-place score on Friday followed by a 13th-place score on Saturday. Impressive to say, Zearfoss was forced to earn his consistent results the hard way, first climbing 12 positions on Friday, then climbing another pair of spots on Saturday. Zearfoss’ Friday outcome was the product of the Last Chance Showdown, finishing third to qualify for the $10,000-to-win A-Main.

In all, Zearfoss’ results were sound enough to keep the World of Outlaws Rookie of the Year contender ninth in the overall driver standings.

“It felt good to be home, that’s for sure,” Zearfoss expressed, who owns 21 top-tens on the World of Outlaws campaign trail this season. “We’ve turned a lot of laps at Port Royal so we were pretty excited to have the opportunity to get back there and race. There’s nothing we would have loved more than to win in front of our home fans and partners, but I think our results speak for themselves. The guys worked hard all weekend. We get to spend a few extra days at home before we have to leave again so we’re going to suck that up, for sure.”

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series will take a weekend off before resuming the 2021 season on Friday, October 22, with the FVP Platinum Battery Showdown at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kansas.

Dietrich opens Nittany Showdown with top-ten; Lincoln finale ahead

 

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (October 11, 2021) – It was a hard-fought weekend in the Keystone State for Gettysburg’s Danny Dietrich, and although the 2021 Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek champion did not attain another victory against the Greatest Show On Dirt, Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing performed well and highlighted the two-day Nittany Showdown at Port Royal’s “Speed Palace” with a top-ten performance, climbing seven spots to do so in Friday’s weekend opener.

Dietrich, driver of Gary Kauffman’s Weikert’s Livestock, Sandoe’s Fruit Market, Pace Performance, Big Cove Whitetail Trophy Hunts, Bowhunters Superstore, Drop Of Ink Tattoo, Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC, Self Made, Graver’s Garage, Racer’s New & Used Parts, No. 48 sprint car, finished tenth in Friday’s $10,000-to-win spectacle, not deterred by his ninth row starting position. 

In fact, although he missed the top-ten in Saturday’s finale, Dietrich still did his best to put on a passing clinic, first transfering through the evening’s Last Chance Showdown before climbing from 24th to finish 16th. Dietrich was forced to compete in the last chance race after missing a transfer spot in his respective heat race.

“It wasn’t exactly the weekend we were working for, but we’ll take these results and move forward. You’re not going to find fields as tough as this very often, so I wouldn’t say we are completely disappointed,” Dietrich said pertaining to the weekend. “Hats off to the team. It’s been a long season, but they never stopped working. Hats off to the fans, too. Pennsylvania has the best race fans in the world and if it wasn’t for them, none of this would be a reality. We’ll keep digging and work to end this season on top.”

Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing will continue their 2021 campaign with the Lincoln Speedway season finale on Saturday, October 16. “Double D” has one Lincoln win to his credit this season, earning his trip to the front stretch victory lane platform on March 13.

Whittall 11th against Greatest Show On Dirt in Port Royal’s Nittany Showdown finale

 


By Fully Injected Motorsports:

VINCENTOWN, N.J. (October 11, 2021) – In perhaps his top performance of the season, Vincentown, New Jersey’s Justin Whittall put on a show Saturday night in Port Royal Speedway’s Nittany Showdown finale and nearly found himself inside the top-ten with the best sprint car drivers in the world, ultimately completing his 2021 campaign with an 11th-place score against the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series; it was Whittall’s first-ever feature start against the Greatest Show On Dirt.

Impressive, nonetheless, Whittall, driver of the JW Motorsports, JG Kronenberger Fine Jewelry, Mid-Atlantic Transport, Brotherton Brewing Company, Beechwood Landscape Architecture and Construction LLC, Pioneer Auto Body, Worldwide Bearings, FK Rod Ends, Stilo Helmets, Keizer Aluminum Wheels, Enterprise, Ground Blind Boys, No. 67 sprint car, earned his 11th-place outcome from 20th on the grid, tying ten-time Series champion, Donny Schatz, for the evening’s hard charger award (Schatz declared hard charger with his overall finish being higher than Whittall’s).

Whittall was in prime position to potentially duplicate his Saturday outcome on Friday, but contact with the outside retaining wall during the evening’s Last Chance Showdown erased all potential. Despite the fact, Whittall made up for his hiccup and performed to the max the following evening.

“I’m really, really proud of everyone involved. It’s kinda sad to say our season is done, but to end our year on a note like that is pretty incredible. We know we have the equipment and the speed to contend with whoever is on the track…we just need to put together all of the pieces.” Whittall said, a former Williams Grove Speedway winner. “I can’t thank my partners enough for all of their dedication this season. It’s been an up and down year for us, but we had our shining moments and I’m sure we made them proud. Here’s to an awesome year…we’ll see everyone in 2022.”

Justin Whittall and JW Motorsports will dive head first into the off-season and immediately begin preparations for the coming season. An update pertaining to Whittall’s 2022 schedule will be posted when it becomes available. 

“Thank you, everyone,” Whittall added. “To the fans, my family, our partners…I couldn’t do it without you, so thank you.”

Wilson Ties Season-Best All Star Result During Finale at Fremont

 

Inside Line Promotions - FREMONT, Ohio (Oct. 11, 2021) - Greg Wilson wrapped up the racing season in his home state of Ohio last Saturday during the Jim & Joanne Ford Classic.

Fremont Speedway hosted the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions season-ending doubleheader, which lost Friday's opener because of wet weather. Track and series officials worked diligently to get the program in on Saturday and Wilson made the most of it.


"For as much rain as they got, Fremont and the All Stars did a great job for giving us a track we could even race on," he said. "I was really happy with how the whole night played out and that we rolled the car back into the trailer."

The Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics and DNC Hydraulics supported Seeling Motorsports driver went out late in qualifying and timed in 30th quickest overall, but his time ranked third in his group. It put Wilson on the outside of the front row of a heat race and he won it to transfer into a dash.

Wilson gained a position to place second in his dash. That lined him up on the outside of the second row in the A Main.

"Early in the race I felt we had a car capable of winning," he said. "We rode in third for a little bit. Between the track conditions and trying to keep all four wheels on the ground the driver gave away a spot or two. Something changed part way through the race. Something seemed like it happened. We couldn't go through the holes later in the race as well as we did earlier in the race. When it's like that it's hard to pinpoint whether the driver made a mistake or if we had something go wrong with the car."

Wilson ended with a sixth-place showing, which tied his season-best run with the All Stars. It also marked his 26th top 10 of the season.

The team is unsure of its next event with the World Finals in North Carolina tabbed as the season finale.

Big Game Motorsports and Gravel Post Runner-Up Result During Nittany Showdown Finale

 

Inside Line Promotions - PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Oct. 11, 2021) - David Gravel capped the Nittany Showdown with a career-best World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series result at Port Royal Speedway last Saturday.

The Big Game Motorsports driver maneuvered from eighth to second place, which was his 38th top five of the season with the series and his fourth podium in the last nine races.


The event began on Friday with Gravel timing in eighth quickest in his group, which started him on the outside of the second row in a heat race.

"On Night 1 we didn't qualify the way we wanted to," he said. "We were off on the race car. We went to work for the heat race and got the car a lot better. We were able to race our way into the dash."

Gravel's run from fourth to second earned a spot into the dash. Unfortunately, he pulled the second-highest number - seven - to start on the inside of the fourth row. Gravel ended eighth in the dash and lined up eighth for the A Main.

"It's hard to get going there in the fourth row," he said. "We pretty much maintained in the A Main. We weren't bad and weren't great. We just could hang around and ended up sixth."

Saturday started on the right note as Gravel set quick time during qualifying for the 17th time this season, which leads the World of Outlaws.

"The track was different to start," he said. "It was definitely faster and had more grip. In hot laps, qualifying, the heat race and even the dash the track was pretty fast. We were able to quick time and put ourselves in a good position and win the heat race. I drew another terrible pill for the dash with the seven. We weren't that great at the dash. We tried something a little different there in the feature and it worked out really good. We had a really good race car and I felt like we could pass people and make some stuff happen. It felt really good to finish on a strong note."

Gravel's runner-up result was set up by a strong second half of the race.

"The wing going back helped, but typically as the race goes on you'll want to get the wing back to chase the race track," he said. "The car liked it. I actually got the wing back too far and it was getting tricky to drive late in the race. You had to be committed to the top. It's a good thing when it's around the top and you're able to pass guys. That shows you're operating well."

Gravel remains second in the World of Outlaws standings, but the solid weekend cut the deficit to 92 points with five races remaining.

The team is off this weekend before the next World of Outlaws event on Oct. 22 at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., for the FVP Platinum Battery Showdown.

Dominic Scelzi Wins Trio of Races During 36th Annual Cotton Classic

 


Inside Line Promotions - HANFORD, Calif. (Oct. 11, 2021) - Dominic Scelzi soaked up the success of another stout weekend as he picked up a trio of feature victories during the 36th annual Cotton Classic to push his season win total to 21 triumphs.

"I'm over the moon happy," he said. "We had a great weekend and are closing in on 23 wins this season, which would give me 50 career. If I can hit 27 wins, which I know is a long shot, that would match the number of wins I earned in my first nine years of racing."


Scelzi swept the night at Keller Auto Speedway on Friday, winning the Kings of Thunder 410ci winged sprint car feature as well as the Sprint Car Challenge Tour main event.

Scelzi qualified ninth quickest and placed fifth in a heat race to open the 410 action. That lined him up on the inside of the fifth row in the A Main.

"We didn't qualify very good in the 410," he said. "We were a little bit tight. Then in the heat race the track was fairly slick, but really dirty. We didn't get a very good start and fell to sixth. We got back to fifth and finished there.

"In the feature we picked someone off every couple of laps. I got to fourth and then (D.J.) Netto and (Justin) Sanders hit each other. I was able to get to second. I felt good prior to that, but that helped out a ton. We restarted second and I felt like I tricked Bud (Kaeding). I got him to run the bottom in turns one and two. I ripped the top and hit the bottom in turns three and four to drive by him with a few laps remaining."

Scelzi pulled away for the victory to add to his lead in the Kings of Thunder standings. He was just as efficient during 360 competition as he advanced from seventh to third place in a heat race and from fifth to win a qualifier. That started him on the outside of the front row in the main event.

"The scoring loop went out and they weren't able to qualify us so they lined the heats up by pill draw," he said. "We did really well and passed some guys. In the qualifier we methodically worked our way through there. That put us starting second in the feature. The race went green and the polesitter beat me into turn one. He missed the bottom into turns three and four and I got by him. We ran the top and bottom throughout the race. I got through traffic pretty good. I felt really, really good and we were able to lead all 30 laps to get the win."

Saturday started with similar success for Scelzi, who timed in fourth quick in the King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series qualifying. A heat race win was followed by a dash triumph, which put Scelzi on the pole for the feature.

"We went out 18th in qualifying and the track had slowed down tremendously," he said. "I was a little worried about getting a good time. I felt we had a hell of a lap. We got into the cushion perfectly and didn't spin the tires where the cushion fell off the edge.

"In the heat race we passed Kyle (Hirst) around the top in turns one and two and then got to the bottom in turns three and four. We were around the bottom the rest of the heat race. For the dash we got put on the pole, which is awesome. We won that and started on the pole of the first feature.

"I ran the middle for most of the race, but I was able to run the top, the bottom, everywhere. The track was really slick and wide. There were three lanes of racing and we used all of them."

Scelzi led the distance during the first of twin 20-lap main events. He was credited with 20th in the second feature, which was completely inverted. Scelzi exited the weekend having virtually locked up the series championship.

Scelzi was also strong in the 360 portion of the night, setting quick time during qualifying, winning a heat race and finishing second in the dash. The main event wasn't run because of a medical emergency in the pits.

This weekend will be dormant for Scelzi, whose next event is the Trophy Cup Oct. 21-23 at Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, Calif.

HERR & DEVINE ACHIEVE FIRST TRACK CHAMPIONSHIP WITH HARVEST CLASSIC WIN

 


YORK HAVEN, PA - Frankie Herr had plenty of motivation to win races over the last three weeks at BAPS Motor Speedway. 
            
September started with a disappointing run in the Sportsman 100. Herr made a driving error during the prestigious event and wanted to make up for the loss, but that wasn’t his only inspiration. 
            
Herr’s car-owner, Bill Devine, had never won a championship in 34 years of owning a race car. With the season winding down, the Carlisle, Pa., driver had a chance to rectify that problem.
 
That journey was completed Saturday night. Herr blasted to his third straight win at the speedway in the 25-Lap Harvest Classic. The victory was the fifth of the season for the 58-year-old driver and clinched the Super Sportsman championship.
 
“It just meant so much for me to win it for Bill and the team,” Herr said. “He’s been racing a long time and never won a championship, and I knew that. 
 
“When he hired me years ago, it took a while to get me to do it again full time. The last three years, we went full time at it and when I saw we had a chance to do something at the end of the year, I really wanted to get it for him.”
 
Continued Herr, “It’s a nerve-racking deal. Anything can happen in racing. It’s not over until it’s over, and it was special when it was finally over.”
 
Nate Young grabbed the early lead from his outside front row starting spot, only to give it up to Chase Gutshall on Lap 3. The lead was short-lived, as seventh-place starter Russ Mitten took the lead on the fourth circuit.
 
It looked like Mitten was going to speed away to his third win of the season. That changed on Lap 18, when Fred Shipley spun and collected the leader. 
 
Herr lined up fourth on the restart, and it didn’t take him long to make his way to the front. He charged into second on Lap 19 and shot by Gutshall for the lead on the 20th circuit.
 
“We had a couple of cautions late in the race that tightened us back up,” Herr said. “Russell had a pretty nice lead when he got into trouble with a lapped car. At that point, we fell into line fourth on the restart and watching ahead of us, I was like, ‘Man, if those guys don’t get off the bottom, they are going to get passed.’
 
“We were rolling around the top pretty well, especially off of three and four. We were getting off there well and the longer it went, the looser they got. It wasn’t too much trouble getting around them.” 
 
Two late cautions didn’t stop Herr’s march. He paced the field and claimed the win over Gutshall by 1.653 seconds at the stripe.
 
“We paid attention all Summer, and the track definitely changed the last couple of weeks,” Herr said. “Donny, my helper, kept a good eye on the track, as I did, and we learned some stuff. 
 
“We made some changes when we needed to and read the track right, and it fell into our hands. The car was good. It’s definitely been operating the last three weeks.”
 
Mitten went to the rear after his Lap 18 setback and surged back through the field to finish third. Scott Dellinger was fourth, with Matt Ondek completing the top five.
 
Steve Davis dominated the field to capture top honors in the 30-Lap FXG Sign and Label, Dickey’s Barbecue 602 Modified main event.
 
Rick Wegner Jr. started on the pole and led the first five circuits before pulling off during a Lap 6 caution period. That handed the lead to Davis, who started sixth in the field. 
 
There were three more cautions in the event, but Davis never wavered. He sped away over the last 16 laps to take the win by 3.598 seconds. He was followed by Joe Toth, Bobby Watkins, Dakota Kohler, and Matt Yoder.
 
In Sportsman Modified action, Jordan Henn grabbed the top spot on Lap 6 and led the rest of the way to take the win in the 20-Lap affair.
 
Craig Whitmoyer started on the pole and paced the field for the first five circuits. Henn made his way to the front by the sixth circuit and survived two cautions to claim the win by 3.826 seconds. 
 
Whitmoyer held on for the second-place finish, with Will Dupree, Joe Toth, and Talan Carter completing the top five. 
 
Tyler Barrick survived a caution-filled main event to win the 600 Xcel Modified feature. He led the final 13 laps in the 15-Lap feature.
 
Kenny Harris, who led the first two laps, finished second. Geoffrey Sutton, Korey Inglin, and Justin Schrader completed the top five.
 
The PASS/IMCA 305 Sprint Car feature saw Buddy Schweibinz lead the entire 20-Lap distance for the win. His margin of victory was 3.394 seconds.
 
Logan Spahr, Josh Bricker, Kristina Pratt, and Roger Weaver completed the top five. There were five cautions during the main event.

Steve Cantwell led the entire 15-lap Classic Car feature, taking the win over Bill Brown Jr., Conner Cantwell, Jim Rost, and Dylan Brown.

Lance Dewease Finalizes 2021 Williams Grove Track Title In National Open Run 69K Kreitz/Brown team “cleans up” laurels at oval, Other speedway awards announced

 

Mechanicsburg – Veteran Lance Dewease of Fayetteville finalized his 2021 track championship run at Williams Grove Speedway with a seventh place finish in the prestigious 59th annual National Open for 410 sprint cars on Saturday night.

At the wheel of the Don Kreitz-owned No. 69K, the soon-to-be 56-year old on October 6 is now a seven-time track titlist in the 410 sprint car division.

Dewease put together a very impressive record during his 2021 Williams Grove campaign, competing in 20 main events while pulling off 15 podium finishes.

All told, Dewease scored four wins, seven seconds, four thirds, a pair of fifths, a pair of sixths and one seventh place finish during the season at Williams Grove.

A highlight early in the season for Dewease was when he snagged his first checkers of the year at the track, giving him an even 100 victories at Williams Grove Speedway on an all-time career win list that he already sat perched atop

Additional wins came on June 18, June 25 and July 2.

The win on June 25 occurred in the Pennsylvania Speedweek opener that also served as a tribute to his famed mechanic, 87-year old Davey Brown Sr.

Dewease scored $6,000 in the Davey Brown Tribute Race.

One week later he took his mount to another victory in the famed Mitch Smith Memorial, worth $15,000.

It was his unprecedented sixth career checkers in the Smith Memorial and at that point in the season it was Dewease’s third win in a row at Williams Grove and his fourth in the last five races contested there.

The track title was the first for the Franklin County driver since last accomplishing the feat back in 2011 while wheeling for Donnie Owens in the No. 30C.

Other track crowns came for owner Al Hamilton, No. 77, in 2002 and 2003; for Joe Harz, No. 88H, in 2001; and for Walter Dyer in the No. 461 in 1994 and in 1996.

Dewease was also crowned the 2021 Hoosier Diamond Series champion at Williams Grove Speedway, taking his fourth career title in the series.

Previous Diamond Series titles came in 2002, 2011 and in 2018.

Overall, Dewease now owns 31 track or series titles during his career since starting in sprint cars in 1985.

He was also voted the recipient of the 2021 Sportsmanship Award at Williams Grove.

The Williams Grove track crown is the 10th of Davey Brown’s career as a mechanic and the fifth for Don Kreitz Jr. as a car owner although the first four were as an owner/driver from 1990 – 1993.

Brown received the 2021 Mechanic of the Year Award, named in his honor earlier this season.

Car owner Kreitz has now scored four Diamond Series titles including two as a driver/owner and two with Dewease at the wheel.

Additional Williams Grove 2021 season awards were recently handed out to drivers Devin Borden and Chase Dietz.

Borden was named Rookie of the Year as the pilot of Mike Heffner’s No. 27 after claiming a first career win at the track.

Dietz, pilot of John Trone’s No. 39, was voted Most Improved Driver.

Freddie Rahmer, Anthony Macri, Danny Dietrich and TJ Stutts finished behind Lance Dewease as the balance of the top five in Williams Grove Speedway points.

Derek Locke Runs To Second Consecutive Williams Grove 358 Sprint Title Carlisle driver sweeps action with unprecedented season

 

Mechanicsburg – Derek Locke of Carlisle was recently crowned the 2021 HJ Towing & Recovery 358 sprint car track champion at Williams Grove Speedway.

Locke’s title laurels are the second of his career at the oval and his second in a row aboard his family-owned No. 77.

On his way to the track crown, the 37-year old Locke scored an unprecedented feat when he swept the entire season of competition at the speedway, taking victories in all eight oval events during the year.

Wins came on April 16, April 23, May 21, June 25, July 30 (2), September 3 and on September 24.

And given the fact that Locke also scored the final race of the season in 2020, his consecutive race win streak at the Grove now stands at nine!

When Locke began the 2020 season at Williams Grove Speedway he was winless during his career at the track.

But with three wins in the bag before the year was over tacked onto his eight triumphs in 2021, the UPS driver by trade has now scored 11 times on the all-time oval 358 sprint car career win list, ranking him eighth in the order.

His plans for next season include returning to Williams Grove Speedway to compete in the 358 division while also competing in some 360-powered sprint events and making his first forays into a limited number of 410 sprint car races in the area.

Locke credits the hard work of his team and dedicated sponsors for his amazing success in 2021.

Primary sponsors on the Locke machine include: Dellinger’s Auto Body, Ritter Transport, Drydene Performance Products and Russ’s Auto and Trailer Sales.

Devin Adams was named 2021 358 sprint Rookie of the Year at Williams Grove Speedway.

Second through fifth in the final point standings for the 2021 season were Matt Findley, Chris Frank, Cody Fletcher and Rich Eichelberger.

Cole Macedo scores Fremont All Star finale for $10,000; Tyler Courtney crowned 2021 All Star champion

 

FREMONT, Ohio (October 9, 2021) - For the first time in his career, Lemoore, California’s Cole Macedo is a FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event winner, doing so in thrilling fashion during Fremont Speedway’s annual Jim & Joanne Ford Classic on Saturday, October 9. Scoring a $10,000 payday in the process, Macedo secured his place in the All Star history books on lap 27, sneaking by race-long leader, Cap Henry, before opening up to a near-two-second advantage. Heavy lapped traffic mixed in with a late race bobble gave Henry one last chance to capitalize, but Macedo held strong, actually splitting a pair of lappers late to keep the Lane Racing No. 4 at bay.

Henry held on to finish second after leading the first 26 laps, followed by Buch Motorsports’ Justin Peck, “Hunter Percent” Hunter Schuerenberg, and Rudeen Racing’s Cory Eliason.

“This is the most fun I’ve had all year. Just out there hanging it out and whoever runs hard is going to win. That was a lot of fun…I’m worn out,” said Macedo beside his Fremont Auto Parts, Gill Construction, ML Graphics, Grant Decker Construction, Linder’s Speed Equipment, CK Mechanical, Diversified Builders backed No. 18 sprint car. “That last lap, I was holding on with everything I could. It just shows how good this team is. Steven, Mike, Cody, Kasey, Braden…all the guys have been working their asses off this year and it’s paying off. Huge thanks to Ray Brooks…he’s one of the best car owners I’ve ever driven for. It’s been a trying year but all these guys have been pushing and I’ve been getting better and making less mistakes. I feel like that whole feature I didn’t make too many mistakes. If you want to get to the next level you have to minimize those.”

“It was a fun race other than not winning,” Cap Henry said in Fremont Speedway victory lane. “The car was pretty good and I was just kind of trying to pace it…they were just better there the last half. I’m proud of my team. It’s been a long year but we made it. I think we will try the All Star deal again and see what we can do.”

Cole Macedo won the battle in Fremont, Ohio, but “Sunshine” Tyler Courtney won the war, clinching a first-ever FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 title in his first-ever try. The Indianapolis, Indiana-native and pilot of the Clauson Marshall Racing, NOS Energy Drink Turbo, zMAX Micro-Lubricant, No. 7BC sprint car scored a $65,000 championship payday for his efforts, simultaneously earning the Series' Rookie of the Year award.

Courtney’s championship campaign consisted of eight victories, as well as 37 top-ten finishes in 48 point-earning events, each being the most of any All Star Circuit of Champions competitor. With the overall championship purse awarded to the team and not the driver, Clauson Marshall Racing’s final margin of victory in the title chase was 218 markers, officially clinching the title before the Jim & Joanne Ford Classic even commenced.

Buch Motorsports with primary wheelman Justin Peck finished second in the 2021 All Star standings, followed by Sam McGhee Motorsports and primary driver Parker Price-Miller, Rudeen Racing with primary driver Cory Eliason, and Vermeer Motorsports with Hunter Schuerenberg.
