The Jim Nace Memorial National Open At Selinsgrove Speedway Prestigious Oval Event Brings 37 Years Of History Into 38th Running Saturday

 


9/20/20

Selinsgrove, Pa – This Saturday’s 38th annual Icon Legacy Homes Jim Nace Memorial National Open at Selinsgrove Speedway will find the race entering its fifth different decade since beginning in 1983.

Along the way the prestigious Selinsgrove event has seen a total of 19 different drivers win the contest since the late Maynard Yingst of Linglestown swept the first three in a row in 1983, 1984 and in 1985.

But the now fall classic at Selinsgrove Speedway was originally a summer sizzler with the first four taking place in either June or July.

It wasn’t until 1987 when Ohio’s Dave Blaney got the win that the race was moved into the autumn of the year, taking place on October 3 before it settled into September in 1989 as Midwestern star Doug Wolfgang scored a 75-lap United Sprint Association sanctioned Open worth over $51,000.

The event domination of Fred Rahmer took center stage during the second half of the 1990s as the Salfordville speedster scored five of six races between 1995 and 2000.

In fact, to date no other driver has been as successful in the Selinsgrove Nationals as the retired Rahmer.

His closest pursuers on the all-time Open win list are the late Greg Hodnett and retiree Todd Shaffer, both of whom each counted four checkered flags in the race.

Following the untimely death of five-time Selinsgrove Speedway sprint car track titlist Jim Nace in 2009, the race format was expanded into two segments in 2010 and was now run as the Jim Nace Memorial National Open.

The race used the twin segment format for a total of three years before again becoming a single event in 2013.

Interestingly enough, Thompsontown’s Nace only ever recorded one top-five finish in the Open and never scored the big payday but his Selinsgrove record of five track titles and 46 super sprint car wins certainly cements him as the affair’s namesake.

The Jim Nace Memorial National Open was expanded financially in 2019 to post $20,000 to the winner of a 40-lap contest, billed as the biggest unsanctioned sprint car payday to be posted in the state of Pennsylvania and in the East.

Over the years the most successful drivers in the race that haven’t been able to score a win include four-time Open top-five finishers Paul Lotier and Crish Eash along with three-time top-fivers Randy Wolfe, Joey Borich, Sean Michael, TJ Stutts, Mark Smith and Brent Marks.

On the car owner side of the event, no entry has been driven to National Open victory more than the famed Hamilton Motorsports No. 77 machine, having made the victory lane trip some six times.

Keith Kauffman scored for owner Al Hamilton in 1988 with Lance Dewease taking the W in 2002 while Fred Rahmer sandwiched four wins in between.

Bob Stewart, proprietor of the No. 12 Apple Motorsports sprinter, owns four race triumphs with one belonging to Rahmer, two to Hodnett and one to Chad Layton in 2006.

Three time ownership winners have been Maynard Yingst, Gary and Patty Beam and Zane Highlands.

Saturday’s $20,000 to win 38th annual Jim Nace Memorial National Open gets underway at 7 pm. The race carries a raindate of Sunday, September 27 at 6 pm.

Saturday gates open at 4:30 pm.

Adult general admission for the season finale is set at $30 with students ages 12- 17 priced at $15. Kids ages 11 and under are always admitted for FREE at Selinsgrove Speedway.

Reserved seats can be purchased at an additional price of $2 for all ages. Pit admission is set at $40.

Schweikart and Zimmerman win 40 Lappers at Clinton County

 


Mill Hall, PA – The Clinton County Speedway hosted two large race events on Saturday for the RaceSaver Sprint Cars and the Pro Stocks.   Thirty-three IMCA RaceSaver Sprint were in competition for the Nittany 40 Championship sponsored by Bill’s Happy Camper of Mill Hall.  Twenty-seven Pro Stocks were in attendance for the 40-lap C.W. Smith Memorial honoring the late racer who competed in late models, the ARCA Series and eventually NASCAR with a team based locally in nearby Williamsport.  Dale Schweikart of Linden won the Nittany 40 and John Zimmerman of Varysburg, NY won the C.W. Smith Memorial.  Timmy Bittner of Beech Creek claimed the 270 Micro Sprint feature and Blake Snyder won the 4-Cylinder main event. 

Tylor Cochran of Williamsport set fast time in Sprint Car time trials with a lap time of 15.620 second.   Four heat races and a consolation were used to determine the starting line up for the Nittany 40.  Matt Tebbs of Cogan Station and Ryan Lynn of Hollidaysburg brought the field of sprint cars to the green flag.  Lynn made the pass for the lead going down the front stretch leading Tebbs and national IMCA points leader Garrett Bard of Wells Tannery.  The caution flag waived on lap number four when Doug Dodson spun in turn number two.  On the restart, Lynn controlled the top spot and while Tebbs and Bard battled for second.  Firth place starter Dale Schweikart and fourth place starter Tylor Cochran completed the top five.  On lap number six, Bard and Schweikart passed Tebbs and set their sights on the leader.  Schweikart passed Bard on lap number 8 for the runner up position.  On lap number fourteen, Lynn began to encounter lapped traffic allowing Schweikart to get within striking distance.  However, Lynn threaded his way through the lapped traffic and when Schweikart would get close, Lynn managed to put a lapped car between them.   Lynn’s approach to lap traffic was flawless, until the caution came out on lap number 23 when Tebbs and Dylan Proctor of Lock Haven tangled in turns three and four.  On the restart, the motor of Lynn’s car appeared to miss as he did not get as strong of start, allowing Schweikart to take the lead.  Bard, Cochran, and Lutz were able to pass Lynn shuffling him back to fifth.  On lap 27, three cars came together in turns one and two.  Kyle Coldwell and Dakota Schweikart of Linden tangled in turn two and Josh Beamer of Hughesville was also involved as he had no place to go.  All three cars were able to restart, with Dakota Schweikart feeling the biggest disappointment as he started last in the feature event and worked his way up to eighth before being involved in the wreck. 

Schweikart brought the field back for the green flag with Cochran, Bard, Lutz, and thirteenth place starter Jared Zionkowski in the top five.  Lutz passed Bard for third on lap number 29.  Cochran and Lutz tried to chase down Schweikart, but just could not make the pass.  At the checkered flag, Schweikart won by .270 second for this third feature of the season and the biggest races of his sprint car career.  “This has been a great season, I would like to thank the fans, the speedway workers and everyone who has made Clinton County a great place for RaceSavers sprints,” said Schweikart in victory lane.  “Many of the best in the country were here today and that make this win even more special.”  Cochran finished second, Lutz was third, Bard finished fourth and Zionkowski completed the top five.  Sixth through tenth were Derek Hauck, Ken Duke, Jeffrey Weaver, Brad Mellott and Dylan Proctor.  Heat race winners were Tebbs, Dale Schweikart, Bard and Proctor.  The B-main was won by Ken Duke.

Outside pole sitter, Don Russell led the opening two laps of the 40 lap C.W. Smith Memorial event.  By the completion of lap number 3, fourth place starter John Zimmerman took the lead with Russell in second, Steven Reinhardt in third, Brandon Moser in fourth and Robert Tressler in the top five.   Zimmerman begins to catch lapped traffic on lap number twelve with Reinhardt and Moser hoping for the leader to make a mistake.  A caution on lap number 16 for Mike Koser, bunched the field for the restart.   Sixth place starter Kurt Stebbins used the restart to pass Moser and Reinhardt and focused on catching Zimmerman.  The caution waived once again on lap number 21.  The restart found Zimmerman leading Stebbins, Reinhardt, Jason Smith, and Noah Jenson.  As the green flag waived Stebbins’ car started to smoke as the field came back up to full speed.  Five laps later, the caution waived for Rich Sharpsteer and Reinhard, as Stebbins retired his smoking car to the pit area.  The final restart found Zimmerman with Jason Smith on his back bumper followed by Noah Jensen, Moser, and Ray Rothfuss in the top five.  Smith and Jensen battled for the runner up position for several laps.   At the finish, Zimmerman claimed the $1,800 pay day over Smith, Jenson, Moser, and Tommy Dawson.  Sixth through tenth were Rothfuss, Russell, AY Schilling, Bob Buono and Cory Long.  Heat race winners were Reinhardt, Zimmerman, and Moser, while AY Schilling won the B-main.

Mitchell Holden and Logan Hammaker led the field of 270 Micro Sprints to the drop of the green flag.  2020 track champion, Timmy Bittner of Beech Creek advanced from his fourth starting spot to lead the first lap.  The caution waived on lap number 3 when Hammaker spun.   On the restart Bittner led Ethan Spotts, Jeffrey Weaver, Dan Wertman and Kyle Stahl.  Stahl brought out the caution at the races’ midway point.  Bittner opened a several car lengths advantage over the rest of the field.  Weaver took over the runner up position on the final lap.  Third through fifth were Wertman, Buddy Kramer, and Holden.  Sixth through tenth were James Bigler, Levi Brungard, Spotts, Corey Stable and Logan Hammaker.  Heat races were won by Bittner and Wertman

Pole sitter Tyler Watson led the opening laps of the 4 cylinder feature event.   Watson had to contend with the challenges of fellow front row starter Chris Orwig.   Bake Snyder who started sixth moved into the runner up position on lap number four and began to pressure Watson.   Snyder made the pass for the lead at the midway mark of the race.  Orwig took the runner up position lap number 7, with Watson battling back to regain the position on lap number 10.  At the finish, Snyder was the winner over Watson, Orwig, Sam Creveling and Dylan Craft.  Sixth through tenth were Shaun Wise, Scott Englert, Kyle Strouse, Brett Shirk, and Tim Muthler.  Heat races were won by Snyder and Creveling.

The Clinton County Speedway will now prepare for the season finale on Saturday, October 3rd when the Super Late Models compete for a $5,000 top prize presented by Strouse Electric.  The show will feature time trials and heat races plus a 50 lap feature event.   In addition, the pro stocks will be in competition plus the 270 micro sprint and the 4 cylinders utilizing SCDRA rules.  Gates open at 1PM, Hot laps at 4PM and Racing begins at 4:30PM.

LARSON HOLDS OFF DIETRICH & SCELZI FOR 1ST BAPS VICTORY




 YORK HAVEN, Pa.: After going three races without visiting Victory Lane, Kyle Larson had to make up for slipping under his winning average for 2020. 

Larson started to rectify that Wednesday night with a victory at Lincoln Speedway. On Thursday, his success carried over to BAPS Motor Speedway.  

The Elk Grove, Calif., driver made it 29 wins in 57 starts when he held off Danny Dietrich in a thriller to capture the Kevin Gobrecht Classic at BAPS. The win was his second in a row and banked Larson $5,100. 

Larson ended his three-race losing streak Wednesday night at Lincoln Speedway. On Thursday, he started another one by winning the Kevin Gobrecht Classic at BAPS Motor Speedway for his second win in a row. 

“Honestly, last week wasn’t a bad weekend,” Larson said. “We got beat by the best cars at Port Royal, so I wasn’t too down about it. I think the fans put a lot of high expectations on our team, which is great, but if you don’t win, you are in a slump. 

"It’s good to win. We need to get better when it’s slick like this with nothing to lean on, but I’m excited to get back to the Grove and then Lincoln and hopefully win a couple more.” 

It took a while to get the 30-lap event started. Bradley Howard had a safety issue on the initial start, and Doug Hammaker got upside down at the exit of Turn 2 on the second attempt to start the race. 

Once the race went green, it was all Larson. He surged ahead of Lucas Wolfe from his outside-pole starting spot. By the time the fifth lap was scored, the former NASCAR star opened up a 3.677-second lead. 

While Larson sped away and hid, Wolfe was left to battle with Tanner Thorson. The two drivers went back-and-forth, trading the position for three laps before Wolfe was able to inch ahead on Lap 8. 

Scelzi, who started fourth, entered the mix on Lap 10. He slid Thorson and Wolfe for second entering Turn 1. Wolfe ducked under in the second corner, with Thorson retaking third out of Turn 4. 

Meanwhile, Larson was gone. He opened up a 4.232-second advantage by Lap 12. The only thing that slowed his pace was the caution on the 13th circuit when Anthony Macri spun in Turn 2. 

“Starting outside of the front row the last two nights has really helped us,” Larson said. “It’s good to get good draws. I’ve won a lot this year, but I’ve had to work for it with getting bad draws in dashes and things like that. 

“It was nice to draw the front row for a change and not have to run a Dash to risk going backwards.” 

When the race went back to green, J.J. Grasso blew by Scelzi and Wolfe for second. His race came to an abrupt end at the completion of Lap 14 when he slowed on the frontstretch with front-end issues. 

After another caution for Zach Newlin, Scelzi started to reel in Larson. The California driver was only 10 car-lengths behind on Lap 17 but closed it to three car-lengths with 10 to go. 

Larson was moving all over the track to hold his lead. Scelzi showed his nose in the first and second corner on Lap 23, but Larson was able to maintain his advantage on the high side of Turn 2. 

Dietrich caught Scelzi with a slider through Turns 3 and 4 on Lap 25. Scelzi returned the favor at the other end of the speedway, but Dietrich came off the cushion in the second corner and took the position. 

It didn’t take long for Dietrich, who started 10th, to catch Larson. He was .480 seconds back on Lap 27 and tried a huge slider through the third and fourth corner one lap later that came up just short. 

“If I knew I was going to hit that rut the way I did, yeah, I would’ve waited another lap,” Dietrich said. “I just hit that hole in three just wrong and lost momentum across. Otherwise, I would’ve cleared him no problem. 

“It just kind of rocked my car hard enough that it shot me to the outside fence sooner than I wanted it to. I didn’t want to show my nose completely over there, because he would’ve moved down. I had to pull the trigger as soon as I possibly could, so he didn’t move down and ruin any chance I had.” 

That was the last chance Dietrich got. Larson was able to increase his lead to half a second with one to go and seemed to catch traffic at the right time. 

Larson was too smart and too good through the backmarkers on the last circuit. He took the bottom away entering Turn 3 on the last lap and was able to beat Dietrich to the stripe by .645 seconds. 

“I could see Danny coming well before he got to me and got past Gio, because he was running the bottom, and the top gets so long,” Larson said. “It’s a paperclip, so when you get sideways, you can peak left. 

“I knew he was coming on the bottom, and I had to worry about Gio in the middle, so I felt I was in trouble. Once Danny tried to slide me, I think we caught some traffic, and I knew if I closed off the entry into three, he wasn’t going to be able to get by unless he ripped the top. I’m just thankful I saw the checker.” 

Dietrich settled for second, with Scelzi taking third. Wolfe and 12th-place starter Rico Abreu completed the top five. 

Jimmy Combs won the 15-lap Classic Car feature after passing Steve Cantwell Jr. for the lead on Lap 4. Jim Rost, Joe Brown, Dylan Brown, and Ron Grove completed the top five.

Kyle Larson scores 14th All Star win of 2020 in Lincoln’s Dirt Classic 7




 ABBOTTSTOWN, Pa. (September 20, 2020) - For the 14th time of 2020, Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson found his way to Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory lane, and a big trip it was, scoring Lincoln Speedway’s Dirt Classic 7 for a $20,000 top prize.

Dominating much of the evening program, Larson, aboard the Paul Silva-owned/Finley Farms/Durst/Lucas Oil/Tarlton and Sons/No. 57 sprint car, led every circuit of the 40-lap finale, kicking things off in the Pigeon Hills with a win in each of his respective Dirt Classic heat races. Impressive enough, the Lincoln Speedway win is actually Larson’s second of the week, first securing $6,900 during the unsanctioned Weldon Sterner Memorial on Wednesday, September 16.

With all victories across all divisions included, Larson now owns 39 wins in 2020.

“My car felt great all night, so I was really happy about that. To get the win in our second heat race allowed us to carry that momentum into the feature,” Kyle Larson explained, who leads the 2020 All Star Circuit of Champions win count. “Central Pennsylvania is as tough as it gets. The first couple years coming out here, I only got to run maybe seven or eight times, but now that I’ve been coming out here a lot more with Paul (Silva), we’ve been quick. It just shows how good Paul prepares these cars and what our team is able to do. We certainly couldn’t do it without everyone who helps.”

Larson was relatively unchallenged during the entire 40-lap program with his only disturbances in the form of cautions; a pair of yellow flags on lap 26 and 31, and one red flag stoppage on lap 35.

Dillsburg’s Anthony Macri chased Larson for much of the Dirt Classic main event, snagging second from Rico Abreu on lap three and maintaining that position until the caution on lap 31. The ensuing restart allowed two-time All Star champion, Aaron Reutzel, and former full-time Outlaw contender, Brent Marks, to drive by the Macri Concrete No. 39M. The red flag stoppage on lap 35 for a tangled Paul McMahan and Danny Dietrich allowed Reutzel the opportunity to restart on the tail tank of the familiar No. 57, but Larson proved to be too much to overcome, driving off to score the $20,000 payday.

Aaron Reutzel finished second, followed by Brent Marks, Rico Abreu and Anthony Macri.

“Those last 15 or so laps, the cautions really worked out for me,” Larson continued. “That allowed me to just kinda focus on the track in front of me, as well as keep the tires underneath me. The first 25 laps were fun, too. When I caught traffic, I really wasn’t sure what to do because all of the lap cars were kinda the same speed. I never really saw a nose inside of me, so I didn’t feel pressured much.

“Thanks to all of the fans for coming out and supporting this race. We always talk about the competition in Pennsylvania, but the race fans are second to none. We love coming out here and getting to see everyone.”

What’s Next:

Foos breaks through for Fremont 410 win; Weaver gets 6th 305 victory; Valenti tames trucks




 By Brian Liskai
FREMONT, Ohio - After a fantastic 2019 season that saw him claim a pair of championships, DJ Foos was struggling in 2020. But about a month ago he and the Burmeister Racing team started to gain momentum and it came to a head Saturday, Sept. 19 at Fremont Speedway as the Fremont, Ohio driver led all 30 laps to score his first win of the season on Pub 400 Night.
“Wrecks kept happening right in front of us and a million yellow flags and Cole (Macedo) is a gasser and I kept expecting a slider in one and two. I kept driving it in there harder and harder…I made so many mistakes there towards the end. There’s one thing I’ve learned this year…you can never take a win for granted. It feels so good to win,” said Foos in the Engine Pro Victory Lane.
“These guys on this team don’t give up. The Burmeisters have been doing this for 60 years and there’s a reason for it. I’m so grateful to be sitting in this car and race every weekend. Mikey, LJ, Rollie, Sharon, Justin….everyone does so much for us like Paul Kistler, Doug Berryman and all our great sponsors,” added Foos beside his Crown Battery,Vantage Branding, Kistler Engines, CR Juices, Berryman Shocks, Burmeister Trophy, The Jet Express, Minor Customs, Napa of Bryan, KS Sales & Service, Keizer Wheels, Dave Story Equipment #35.
Fremont, Ohio’s Paul Weaver is having one of the greatest seasons in his long history of racing and he added to his accomplishments Saturday in the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprints. Weaver jumped into the lead at the drop of the green of the 25-lap feature from his outside front row starting spot and never looked back, claiming his sixth win of the season at “The Track That Action Built.” Weaver now has 13 total victories in 2020 including seven wins at Attica Raceway Park. Saturday’s triumph was the 57th of his career at Fremont and puts him seventh on the track’s all-time win list.
“Things are just going our way when it comes to pill draws. You keep putting me on the front row and it makes it hard to lose. I want to thank Pam and Steve Brown, Russ Adkins, definitely Bob Hampshire and Dave Rice,” said Weaver of his B&B Drain Service, Hampshire Racing Engines, M&L Excavating, Seagate Sandblasting, Weaver Performance backed #1W.
In a caution filled – 10 yellow flags in 20 laps – Burmeister Trophy Dirt Truck feature, Fostoria, Ohio’s Shawn Valenti took charge on lap seven, survived numerous restarts and drove to his fourth win of the season. It was Valenti’s 59th career win at Fremont putting him fifth on the track’s all-time win list, only one win away from tying John Ivy and Mark Keegan for third.
“To be up there in wins with those guys is pretty amazing. I have to thank the Babocks. When we unloaded this thing we weren’t that good and actually had to have some parts brought in and change a leaf spring that went bad. A pretty amazing group of guys with John Brooks and Chris…they bust their butts on this thing too,” said Valenti of his Best Performance Motorsports; A Plus Auto Center; Craig Miller Trucking; KS Sales & Service; Gressman Powersports; Dave Story Equipment, Speedways Bar and Grill backed #7B.
Foos and Trey Jacobs brought the field to green for the 30-lap Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprint A-main with Foos gaining the advantage over Cole Macedo, Jacobs, Stuart Brubaker, RJ Jacobs, Dean Jacobs and TJ Michael. A caution on lap five kept the field close as Brubaker had moved into third.
Following back-to-back cautions on lap eight and nine, Foos got tremendous restarts and pulled away from Macedo who had his hands full with ninth starter Nate Dussel with Brubaker and Dean Jacobs battling for fourth.
Foos entered heavy lapped traffic at the half-way point and Macedo and Dussel closed with Dean Jacobs taking fourth. With 10 laps to go Foos made a fantastic move in lapped traffic and began to pull away until Josh Turner tipped over right in front of the entertaining battle for second involving Macedo, Dussel and Dean Jacobs.
After another caution on the ensuing restart, Foos pulled away again when the green reappeared but a caution with six laps remaining gave Macedo and Dussel another shot. Foos was too good when the green fell and he drove away to his 16th career victory at Fremont with Dussel taking second on the white flag lap. Macedo, Dean Jacobs and Brian Smith rounded out the top five.
Brandon Moore and Weaver paced the field for the 25 lap 305 A-main with Weaver taking the initial lead over Moore, Jamie Miller, Alvin Roepke, Kyle Capodice and Mike Keegan. A caution after two laps were scored slowed Weaver’s march to the checkers and when the green reappeared he drove away while Miller took second with Roepke taking third on lap five.
Weaver encountered heavy lapped traffic by lap eight but Miller could not close. A cation with 12 laps in put Miller and Roepke right on Weaver’s tail but the veteran again pulled away until another caution on lap 14.
When the green came back out Weaver built his lead once again as Miller and Roepke exchanged the runner-up spot lap after lap with Seth Schneider moving into fourth.
No one was going to catch Weaver as he drove to the win over Roepke, Miller, Schneider and Moore.
In the crash-filled dirt truck A-main, Cory McCaughey grabbed the lead at the drop of the green and maintained the top spot the first six circuits. Valenti used a restart to take the lead on lap seven and despite numerous cautions, would build big leads. A caution with three laps to go wiped out a nearly six second lead for Valenti.
Valenti would not be denied driving to the victory over McCaughey, Jamie Miller, Dana Fry and Kent Brewer.
It will be all sprint cars Saturday, Sept. 26 at Fremont Speedway as the FAST winged 410 sprints come to down along with the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS) non-wing sprint cars and the 305 sprints.

Sam Hafertepe, Jr. Charges To Third $10,000 Hockett/McMillin Memorial Victory!

Bryan Hulbert – WHEATLAND, Mo. (September 19, 2020) Falling back to third for most of the SawBlade.com A-Feature Saturday night, a caution with eight laps to go saw Sam Hafertepe, Jr. mount the late-race charge to secure the $10,000 prize in the General Tire Hockett/McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.

“That was really exciting. If these fans didn’t enjoy that, I don’t know, because there just isn’t better racing than that,” stated Hafertepe.

“These guys, they drove their hearts out and I feel like all three of us should have won this deal. It was just a badass race. Everybody drove each other clean, we were throwing sliders, and that cushion was tough. It was treacherous and really, our car wasn’t that good. Them two had us covered, but I just didn’t give up and kept pushing, and pushing, and pushing. I’ve won this race two other times, and I was determined to make it three.”

Chasing Mark Smith and Derek Hagar on the Lap 32 restart, Hafertepe rolled by Smith for second on Lap 36.

Trailing Hagar by 1.301-seconds, Sam leaned hard on the nearly foot tall cushion that circled the three-eights mile oval. Closing it down to 0.874-seconds the following lap, Sam was within mere car lengths as the pair raced into the third and fourth turns.

Hooking the cushion through the fourth turn, Hagar’s No. 9jr suddenly shot right, launching into the fluff just long enough to give Hafertepe room to sail into the lead on Lap 38.

Racing to the white flag with Hagar in hot pursuit, Hafertepe kept it smooth through the final circuit for his sixth National Tour score of the season. Also counting as a win with the Racinboys.com ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. tied Jesse Hockett’s nine regional triumphs.

Hagar crossed second with Mark Smith, who dominated the opening 27 laps, ending his weekend third. Making up five positions in the Dissolvalloy No. 88, Oklahoma’s Shane Stewart crossed fourth with Justin Sanders completing the top five. Going red for Scott Bogucki, who was running fourth coming to the checkered flag, the finish reverted to the white flag lap after the No. 15h.

Racing around Hafertepe through the opening half of the A-Feature, Dylan Westbrook slipped to sixth with Jordon Mallett seventh. Ayrton Gennetten was eighth with Tim Crawley making up four spots to ninth while Roger Crockett completed the top ten.

Starting the night with SCE Gaskets Qualifiers, wins went to Shane Stewart, Seth Bergman, Jonathan Cornell, and Harli White. BMRS B-Features went to Sean McClelland, Garet Williamson, and Brandon Anderson. The Brodix LCQ went to Sean McClelland.

Provisionals were used by Blake Hahn (Points), Matt Covington (Points), and Miles Paulus (Regional).

The next event for the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network is the $10,041 to win COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tire on Friday, October 2 and Saturday, October 3. Tickets and event info can be found at http://www.i-30speedway.com.

Kaeding and Ballenger Enjoy Victories at Huset's Speedway During DeKalb/Asgrow Power Series Nationals presented by Casey's General Stores Finale




 Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (Sept. 19, 2020) - Tim Kaeding savored Victory Lane on Saturday evening at Huset's Speedway, where the California native recorded a feature triumph during the track's season finale along with Dusty Ballenger.


Kaeding completed approximately a half dozen donuts between turn four and the frontstretch as the crowd roared in appreciation. Kaeding then climbed on top of the rear of his winged sprint car, raising his arms in the air and exhaling a yell. After his race car was pushed into the designated area for the Victory Lane ceremony, Kaeding performed another wing dance that was followed by congratulatory handshakes and hugs from friends, fans and competitors.

Kaeding was just as intense on the high-banked oval, where he led the distance to capture the Midwest Power Series and Midwest Sprint Touring Series portion of the DeKalb/Asgrow Power Series Nationals presented by Casey's General Stores. He was awarded a check for a whopping $10,000 for his feat.

"It's amazing," he said. "I felt like the old TK right there. Get up on the fence and run the living piss out of it."

Kaeding built more than a five-second lead before a caution on Lap 15 brought the field back together. He then had to hold off challenges from Midwest Power Series champion Justin Henderson and Friday night's feature winner Shane Golobic, who charged from 17th to second.


"Obviously we wanted to be one spot better, but I put our team in a hole in qualifying," Golobic said after his runner-up result. "Seventeenth to second is nothing to hang your head about. Hats off to TK. This was right up his alley."

Jack Dover, who claimed two of the four Midwest Sprint Touring Series wins at Huset's Speedway this year, rounded out the podium after starting ninth.

"I'm really happy with a third-place finish," he said. "Before we started the main we dropped a cylinder so we were on seven cylinders."

Trey Starks was the Hard Charger Award winner after rallying from 21 st to fourth and Clint Garner placed fifth.

A total of 48 drivers participated on Saturday with Starks and Matt Juhl setting quick time in their qualifying groups to kick off the competition. Davey Heskin, Kaeding, Garner and Lynton Jeffrey each won a heat race. Tommy Barber picked up the C Main victory and Starks captured the B Main triumph.


Ballenger led the entire 20-lap, $1,000-to-win RaceSaver sprints A Main, beating eighth-starting Tyler Drueke at the finish line by 0.760 of a second. The two drivers were nearly side by side as they exited turn four in traffic with a handful of laps remaining, but Ballenger's higher groove gave him the momentum needed to maintain the top spot. Drueke stayed within striking distance, but Ballenger made the right moves in traffic to score the win.

"I was just trying to get through lapped traffic the best I could," he said. "I have a bunch of kids on my crew (and) some old guys. I will tell you we're going to have a party tonight."

TERRIFIC IN TRAFFIC: Krup Escapes Clutches of Nicely, Hoffman to Win Hope for Harlie Prelim at Cedar Ridge Illinoisan denies Hoffman of record-tying win again, scores sixth career tour victory

 


MORGANTOWN, KY – Sept. 18, 2020 – With just five laps left, deep in lapped traffic and two fierce competitors closing the gap behind him, Will Krup knew it was time to make a move to secure the win.

Krup had led since the drop of the green, through several caution flags and now had home-state favorite Tyler Nicely and newly crowned champion Nick Hoffman breathing down his neck as he approached a sizable pack of lapped traffic on the 3/8-mile high banks of Cedar Ridge Speedway. Krup stuck mainly to the lower side of the track and began to pick each car in the pack off, one-by-one, until he was forced to move up to get around some others.

With two laps left, Krup made some contact with one of the slower cars that nearly stumbled his momentum as he came out of Turn 4 to collect the white flag. But his JHA Motorsports #K19 was strong and stable, and Krup was able to get through the late-race traffic jam to collect his fifth DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals Feature win of the season in the preliminary night of action at the seventh annual Hope for Harlie benefit race.

“I just kept looking up at the flagman, just wishing he’d throw that checkered,” Krup said after the race. “It was getting awfully thick there. But all-in-all, I survived that deal and came home with a good victory.”

Cedar Ridge has been good to Krup in years’ past. He scored the very first Summit Modified Feature win of his career here last year, also on night #1 of Hope for Harlie weekend. On Friday night, Krup looked as strong as he’s been all year, and it paid off – $1,500 worth.

“It helps being confident after winning the last couple years at this particular race,” Krup said. “The car was really good tonight; I just hope it’s good tomorrow with a lot more money on the line. Everybody’s going to bring their A-game tomorrow, for sure.”

Leading the pack for an all-Elite Chassis podium once again, Krup knew the pressure was coming from Nicely and Hoffman behind him, and he kicked it into high gear at just the right time.

“I had a stick guy up there that I was watching and the gap never got any bigger, never got any smaller, but I just knew that you can’t mess-up in those situations because if you get out of line a little bit, they’ll get underneath you and they’re gonna be hard to pass back,” he said.

Nicely actually viewed the thick traffic at the end as an interesting added element to maneuver around.

“That lapped traffic got pretty heavy there at the end,” Nicely said. “I was kinda looking forward to it; it was just gonna help throw another car into it.”

Crossing the stripe with a runner-up finish, Nicely even had to throw a slide job and execute some needle-threading on the slower cars in front of him just to get by.

“When the lapped cars are running side-by-side, that really affects you,” Nicely said.
“But we got through it with no damage.”

He may have been denied victory by his own Elite Chassis customers again, but Hoffman’s still got a chance to tie his own single-season wins record in Saturday night’s $3,000-to-win finale if he can get the job done. A rare third-place performance in his Heat Race Friday night set him up with an eighth-place landing spot on the starting grid, which he said had an effect on Feature outcome.

“Just gotta tune on it to try and get better earlier in the night,” Hoffman said. “Tonight, burying myself in that Heat Race put me buried in the Feature, and you can’t expect to pass these guys.

“I felt like I was just as good as the two in front of me, just kinda had to pick and choose in lapped traffic. Will got through there really well and so did Tyler. I felt like all three of us were pretty equal speed-wise.”

TEXAS TWO STEP: Logan Schuchart Ropes Second Devil’s Bowl Win The championship points battle tightens with only eight points separating Brad Sweet and Schuchart




 MESQUITE, TX — Sept. 19, 2020 — Blood was in the water. The scent of victory lingered for Shark Racing’s Logan Schuchart at Devil’s Bowl Speedway Saturday night.

The hunger for a win had been turning in his stomach for the past two months.

Since claiming the trophy at the Terre Haute Action Track in mid-July, Schuchart went on a run of 18 top-10 finishes in a row, including four runner-up finishes, but no wins.

When the opportunity to visit Victory Lane for the second year in a row at Devil’s Bowl – the birthplace of the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series – presented itself, Schuchart made the most of it. He maneuvered his way past the likes of Jason Sides, Jacob Allen, Sheldon Haudenschild and David Gravel to go from fifth to the lead by the halfway point of the 30-lap Feature and then went on to claim the $20,000 win.

“We’ve had a lot of seconds and thirds in the last two months,” said Schuchart, of Hanover, PA. “Some really good races. Ran up front with big names and with great teams. There’s a lot of great teams out here that are tough to beat but this Drydene Performance Products race team is going to keep working hard and do the best we can to get this thing in the winner’s circle.

“Just happy to see these guys’ hard work – Ron Helmick, Ben Witman, Tyler Garber, Brendan Collum, Bill (Klingbeil), my grandfather (Bobby Allen), Michael Newman, everybody that is a part of this team – to just get this thing were it needs to be and see their hard work pay off and get this thing back in victory lane where it belongs.”

The victory was his sixth of the season and 22nd of his World of Outlaws career. It also helped him close back in on the championship lead. He now trails points leader Brad Sweet, who finished fourth, by eight points with 12 races remaining.

Before Schuchart galloped his Drydene sponsored horse through the field, Gravel and Haudenschild entered the Feature as the early favorites. Gravel set Quick Time for the fifth time this year – tying him with Sweet and Kyle Larson for the most Quick Time awards this season – won his Drydene Heat Race and then the DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash.

However, his Dash win came with a bit of luck. Gravel and Haudenschild crossed the finish line at a dead tie – 0.000. Since Gravel led the lap prior, he was awarded the victory.

Like Schuchart, Gravel has craved a return to Victory Lane. His last win came at Knoxville Raceway about a month ago. He earned seven top-five finishes in the nine races after and had been a contender to win in several of them. He felt Saturday night at Devil’s Bowl could finally result in another trophy.

He rocketed ahead of the field in the early stage of the Feature, leaving little hope for second-place Haudenschild to get as close to him as he did during the Dash.

While he led, Schuchart did his dance through the field. He was in fourth by Lap 3. Third by Lap 8. And second by Lap 9. Five laps later he could sense the blood in the water. Gravel was in sight and in striking distance.

As the pair exited Turn 2, they had to split the lap car of rookie Mason Daniel, who ran the middle lane through the corner. Gravel chose to go high and Schuchart went low. The Pennsylvania driver’s choice proved to be most beneficial. Gravel was left little room between he, Daniel, and the edge of the track, forcing him to back off the throttle, while Schuchart was left an open door to jolt by them both.

That split second opportunity was all he needed to accomplish his quest of obtaining another victory. Gravel attempted to run him down in the closing laps, keeping him within reach but a caution with three laps to go allowed Schuchart to restart in clear and cruise to the win.

“We had a good enough car to win,” said Gravel, of Watertown, CT. “I’m really bummed for my guys and all our sponsors here tonight. Sometimes it’s better running second there. Mason Daniel has been hard to lap all season and he decides to miss the bottom and give Logan the bottom. It is what it is. We’ll take second and move on.”

He’s on a streak of 26 top-10 finishes in a row, which has helped keep Jason Johnson Racing in the hunt for the team championship. They are currently tied with Schuchart’s Shark Racing team for second in points – 8 points behind Kasey Kahne Racing.

Haudenschild rounded out the podium with his third-place finish, continuing to be one of the best cars on the tour at the moment. He’s collected 12 top-10 finishes in his last 16 races – five of them being wins. He’s now only 14 points behind 10-time Series champion Donny Schatz for third in the driver points.

“The car was good,” said Haudenschild, of Wooster, OH. “Logan (Schuchart) getting by me was a big move. I think we could have kept up with the 41 (of Gravel), but, man, it was a tough track. I feel like in traffic we could have had a shot. We all got bunched up there. We’ll take a third and keep pushing here.”
