Pittman Wins Four In-A-Row at New Egypt

Pittman Rallies for Fourth Consecutive Win at New Egypt

Charges from third starting spot to claim Jersey Outlaw Classic

NEW EGYPT, N.J. - May 24, 2016 - It wasn't easy, but 2013 World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series champion Daryn Pittman managed to charge his way from the third starting position to claim his fourth Jersey Outlaw Classic win in-a-row on Tuesday night at New Egypt (N.J.) Speedway.

Pittman, who won this event in 2013, '14 and '15, secured his fourth win of the season and first since USA Raceway in Tucson, Ariz. on April 18.

"I've been really frustrated with myself with how many front-row starts I've had this year and as few wins," Pittman said. "I got up this morning and thought 'Man, third is where I want to start' - I just had that feeling this morning that if I start third I was going to win.

"Things went our way and we ended up starting third."

Pittman had to work around race-long leader Greg Hodnett, who had dominated the feature and the preliminary races up to that point.

"It was a little bit disappointing seeing the late race caution," Hodnett said. "[Pittman] was definitely better than us in traffic, and I was kind of glued to the bottom in turn one and two and he motored around the top.

"I didn't go up there until he passed and then I realized there was a whole other track to run on. fWe kind of caught him again in traffic and passed a couple lapped cars, but we just needed to keep running. He was definaetely the faster car, we just needed him to slow down a little bit through some lapped traffic."

At the start of the night, Hodnett, in the Lelands.com/Eagle Steel No. 27, was the first car out for qualifying and established the quickest lap of the night at 13.926 seconds.

Hodnett continued his early-night dominance by leading every lap of his heat race and advancing to the dash. As if he needed it, Hodnett then received a lucky invert draw of zero, keeping him on the pole-position for the six-lap race.

The Pennsylvania driver kept his clean sweep of the events going by leading every lap and winning the dash to place himself on the pole for the 30-lap feature.

When the green flag dropped, Hodnett again appeared to be the driver to beat, as he easily controlled the top spot and pulled away from his competition to start the race.

As the race marched on, Pittman, in the Great Clips/Sage Fruit No. 9, had trouble advancing from his third-starting position. When the leaders hit lapped traffic around lap 10, Pittman began his charge.

Pittman's first victim was second-place starter Mark Smith in the Mach 1 Chassis No. M1. Smith, who was making his first start with the Outlaws in 2016, fell to the third position with points-leader Brad Sweet close behind him.

It wasn't long before Pittman reeled in the leader and was challenging for the lead near the halfway point in the race. With 14-laps remaining, Pittman rocketed around Hodnett for the lead.

Pittman dictated the top spot for the remainder of the race, as he held off Hodnett and Smith on a late-race caution with just four laps left, to capture the checkered flag at New Egypt for the fourth year in-a-row.

"We haven't been struggling by any means, but we needed a win," Pittman said. "This really makes me feel good, and makes them feel good going back home to Charlotte this week. We've had some pretty bad finishes but hopefully this can erase that and we can get on a better streak of just running up front.

"I felt like I was struggling [later in the race]...Those last four laps, I didn't feel like I made any of them very good, so I wasn't breathing good until I saw them throw the checkered."

Hodnett held onto the runner-up position, as he finished in the second position for the second time in the four days after finishing behind Lance Dewease at Williams Grove Speedway on May, 20.

"It might be an advantage to see what I am doing...I think it's an advantage in one way, but for us to have the lead and give it away, it's very disappointing. We did the same thing Friday [at Williams Grove Speedway] to Lance [Dewease].

In his first race with the Outlaws in 2016, Smith showed speed all night, as he qualified second, won his heat race, finished second in the dash and finished on the podium in the feature.

"I was hoping to come down here and just get a top five, but we got a top three and we're up here on the podium." Smith said. "I kept trying different lanes to try and make some time up on Greg [Hodnett], then I heard somebody, that ended up being Daryn.

"He was a lot better than us and drove by us. We were about the same speed as Greg, but we just couldn't go through lapped traffic like Daryn could."

The World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series continues their southern migration as the series heads to The Dirt Track at Charlotte for the Circle K/NOS Energy Drink Outlaw Showdown on Friday, May 27.

Schuchart Dominates, Schatz Wins Weedsport

Schuchart Dominates Weedsport, Schatz Steals Victory

Schatz passes Schuchart with five laps remaining to win Empire State Challenge

WEEDSPORT, N.Y. - May 22, 2016 - Logan Schuchart led a race high 30 laps but fell victim to a hard-charging Donny Schatz, who climbed from the ninth starting position to take the lead and score the World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series victory in the Empire State Challenge at Weedsport Speedway on Sunday night.

The seven-time series champion defeated stiff competition and Mother Nature to capture his second win in-a-row at Weedsport, and his season-leading seventh checkered flag of the season.

"I got all the faith in the world in this race team - Tony [Stewart] has assembled an awesome group of guys," Schatz said, as raindrops started to fall from the sky. "These guys are unbelievable and we have a lot of fun together. I'm sure they're ready to get off the east coast because I have been riding in the truck with them and I think they're ready to get rid of me for a while and have a break."

Schuchart, who already has one second-place finish this season in the Ocean Outlaw Showdown at Ocean Speedway on April 1, once again finished in the runner-up position, just shy of the illusive first series win.

"I just didn't have the car at the end, we started to get too loose," Schuchart said. "It's a great run, the guys did a great job. We came up one spot short but it's nothing to hang our heads about. We have a great team and we're learning - but we're a little disappointed.

"There's a great group of people that get us here and sooner or later we are going to get them in victory lane."


To start the night, a threat of rain loomed over the track located just outside of Syracuse, N.Y., as drivers, teams and series officials watched the weather forecast with hopes of escaping a second straight rainout.

Luckily, Mother Nature decided to spare the World of Outlaws, as the night kicked-off with a bang as 23 of 27 drivers qualifyied under the previous track record of 13.401 seconds set by Greg Hodnett last year. Joey Saldana, for the second race in-a-row, set quick-time and established a new track record of 12.274 seconds.

Schuchart, in the Mark Pell Tire Service/Marty Thompson Investments No. 1S, set the third fastest time, placing him in the first starting position for heat three. Schuchart dominated his heat to transfer to the dash, in which he started second after a four was drawn for the invert.

The Shark Racing driver wasted to time finding his way to the front of the dash, as he worked his way around pole-sitter Daryn Pittman to take the lead, and the victory, in the six-lap race.

Schuchart took the green flag for the 35-lap feature from the pole-position and easily pulled away from the field. Even after a rash of early-race cautions, Schuchart appeared to have the car to beat.

All the while, Schatz, in the Bad Boy/Chevrolet Performance No. 15 lurked. Schatz started the feature in the ninth position but quickly cracked the top five before the halfway point in the race. By lap 25, Schatz had worked his way to second and was closing on the leader.

To that point in the race, Schuchart had commanded the top spot with little challenge from any other competitor. Unfortunately for the Hanover, Pa. -native, a red-hot Schatz had him in his crosshairs.

Schatz worked his way up to the leader's rear bumper and around Schuchart within six laps to take the lead with just four laps remaining. Schuchart, who was battling a loose racecar by the end of the race, settled into second, as he watched Schatz drive off.

Schatz extended his lead over the final laps, as he held off Schuchart and David Gravel to continue his dominance at Weedsport. Schatz has now won both series races held at the track since 1993.

"We did go back to the notes from last year, but for some reason we can't go back to that stuff, it doesn't seem to work," Schatz said. "If you look at tonight, I think the track record was broke by 23 cars, compared to last year we were rolling around a second slower, so that changes the dynamic of the car a little. You just have to stay on top of it and I have a great group of guys to do that.

"I don't know if we have hit our stride yet, like I've said, we gain in one area and make ourselves better but we might lose a little in other spots. It's a challenge, definitely fun at the moment trying to get a handle on it."

Schuchart's second-place finish is his third top-five of the season and 10th top-10.

"I couldn't tell you [what happened at the end]," Schuchart said. "I got really lose, and before I even saw a numbered car beside of me, I knew it was the 15 car. He's really hard to beat on these types of racetracks and I feel like these are the types of tracks I shine on - when it gets slick.

"These guys are tough, so to run second against these guys and just keep getting better is what's important."

Since his victory over a week ago at Tri-State Speedway, Gravel, in the Big Game Treestands/JRC No. 5, has admittedly struggled through the Pennsylvania stretch, as he finished 12th and 21st in the two races held in the Keystone State.

"We've been running really well, then went to PA and struggled a couple of nights, so it's good to back on the podium," Gravel said. "It was a tricky track here tonight, and we were good at the end of the race. I got to thank all my guys - Austin, Derek, Barry - they worked their butts off on the long haul here."

Following a day for travel, the World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series will enter New Jersey for the only time in 2016, as the series heads to New Egypt (N.J.) Speedway for the Jersey Outlaw Classic on Tuesday, May 24. For more race information and ticket purchasing options, visit: www.WoOSprint.com/New-Egypt-Speedway

Danny Holtgraver Captures First Arctic Cat All Star Win of 2016 at Wilmot Raceway;

Ends Blaney’s Wisconsin winning streak

WILMOT, Wis. (May 22, 2016) - With television cameras rolling, “Downtown” Danny Holtgraver earned his first Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions victory of the 2016 season on Saturday night, capturing the IRA/All Star Sprint Challenge at Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wisconsin, over Sheldon Haudenschild and Dale Blaney. For Holtgraver, the $5,000 victory ended a recent dry spell for the Pittsburgh native during Arctic Cat All Star competition, his first trip to victory lane with the series since 2014. The pilot of Pete Grove’s Premier Motorsports/Premier Pallets/Bonnell’s Rod Shop/J&J/No. 70 now has ten career main event victories with the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions, with Saturday’s win being his first in the "Badger State."

“We’ve really stepped it up the last few weeks and it feels amazing,” explained Danny Holtgraver. “We kinda struggled there during that first part of the season, but like any new team, it takes time to adjust and connect with the people that you are working with. I just can’t thank my sponsors and supporters enough for standing behind us. We have a long list of people to thank and they definitely know who they are; Pete, Janet, Cody, my dad, Mikey, Alex, and Ben. Hopefully we can keep this momentum rolling and do it again next weekend in Ohio.”

Danny Holtgraver started on the outside of the front row on Saturday evening and battled with pole sitter Jeremy Schultz during the first few circuits, eventually taking sole command by lap five. Despite a few slide attempts by Sheldon Haudenschild, Holtgraver was able to maintain the top spot unscathed; driving back underneath the Southern Pacific Farms/No. 93 during each takeover attempt. Haudenschild, who started sixth on the grid, chased Holtgraver to the final checkers, followed by Dale Blaney, Brandon Wimmer, and Kory Crabtree.

“We were racing side-by-side with Jeremy Schultz those first few laps. It was a lot of fun. I couldn’t even tell you who was winning during those first couple of laps,” explained Holtgraver. “We finally got to the front and was able to stay there. I figured Sheldon (Haudenschild) and Dale (Blaney) would be coming. Those guys are good and it’s tough to be comfortable out front when those guys are racing behind you. I felt some pressure by Sheldon (Haudenschild) a few times, but I was able to turn the car back under him and keep the lead. This was just an awesome weekend. Really glad to be in victory lane. Cody Jacobs gave me a great car. I’m excited to get back in it next weekend.”

The IRA/All Star Sprint Challenge at Wilmot Raceway will be replayed on the American Sports Network at a later date. Time and channel information will be posted in the near future.

The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions will now turn their attention toward a pair of programs in the state of Ohio on Friday and Saturday, May 27-28. The 2016 season will resume on Friday night, May 27, at the Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio, followed by an appearance back at the Wayne County Speedway in Orrville, Ohio, on Saturday, May 28.

Mark Smith Takes Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprint Checkers at Outlaw Speedway

DUNDEE, NY – Mark Smith has figured out the New York slick track and that could be trouble for the rest of the Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprint (ESS) campaigners.  The Sunbury, Pa., driver has been known for his success on the Pennsylvania Sprint Car Circuit and now he’s starting to make a name for himself in New York as well.

Smith, teaming up with car owner Patrick Vigneault, dominated the 25-lap event on Friday night at the Outlaw Speedway.  Smith got the lead early and never looked back on his way to his fifth career series win of his career in the NAPA Auto Parts Tour of the U.S. main-event. The victory was worth $2,275.

“This is pretty cool,” said Smith after the win.  “I’m starting to figure out this dirt.  This stuff is so much different than what we are used to.  Tonight was a little tackier than normal but it was still slick.”

Shawn Donath opened the race leading the first lap from the outside of the front row.  He worked by Larry Kelleher on the top of the speedway to take the lead.  Before a second lap could be completed Sammy Reakes IV, Paulie Colagiovanni and Denny Peebles got together causing Peebles to get over on his side.  All drivers were okay.

Donath was back in command when action resumed jumping in front while Smith made his move on the restart.  In two laps Smith was able to go from fourth after starting eighth up to the runner-up spot on lap four.

Smith was closing on Donath once he got to traffic on lap seven.  He stalked Donath waiting for his opportunity to make a move on by.   Smith never had to make that move as Donath slowed on lap nine surrendering the lead and bringing out the caution.

“I was waiting on traffic to get him messing up and I was going to take advantage of that, but I didn’t have to,” commented Smith.  “Something broke on his car and I hate to see that happen.  I would have liked to fight it out with him instead of him breaking.”

From there Smith was in command of the race.  He bolted away from the field as Jared Zimbardi and Jason Barney both tried the wrestle the lead away from him. Smith ran the middle groove while his challengers kept trying to work the inner part of the speedway.

Smith got to traffic on lap 15 and he began using whichever lane he had to in order to navigate his way through lapped cars.  Whether it was high or low it didn’t seem to be of much difference for Smith as his car was able to make the transition.

“Traffic wasn’t that bad as long they didn’t change lanes every lap and stayed where they are supposed to,” he said.  “It wasn’t so bad.”

By lap 20 Smith was solidly out in front in heavy traffic while Zimbardi, Barney and now Steve Poirier were waging a three car battle for the second spot.  The three swapped slides jobs while making moves through slower traffic to gain the advantage.

At the checkers it was Smith by a healthy margin with Bradford, Pa., driver Zimbardi taking home the second position.  Zimbardi won the last Empire Super Sprint event back in 2014. He was strong throughout but just couldn’t get close enough to muster a challenge on Smith.

“The car was really good again to be able to come from tenth to second,” said Zimbardi.  “I think if we could have had some clean air we would have been alright, but that is how it goes sometimes.  Black Rock (Outlaw Speedway) has been pretty good to us so we are happy with a second tonight.”

Poirier ended up third after struggling early in the main-event.  He found something on the top allowing him to get into the mix near the conclusion of the race battling with Zimbardi and Poirier.

“I was going nowhere at the beginning so I thought it was going to be a long night,” said the six-time champion.  “When the car got less fuel in it the car started performing better.  I got racing with Jason (Barney) and Jared (Zimbardi) and it was a lot of fun.  In the past I didn’t like racing here but that was the most fun I’ve had on a race track.

Barney ended up falling back and finishing in the fourth position with Jonathan Preston, of Romulus, N.Y., having one of his strongest Empire Super Sprint finishes as he completed the top five.

ESS/Outlaw Notes:  The make up date from the April 22 rain out proved very successful with a huge 36 car field…Making first ever ESS starts were Josh Azzi, Dan Kuhn, Brandon Kidd and Nick Cooper…For Azzi it was a night he like to forget as he flipped wildly during hot laps, he walked away…Steve Collins turned fast time on hot lap group 1 but a magneto issue forced him on the sidelines for the night…Smith claimed $200 for taking the 7-12 Challenge, he started in eighth…Memorial Weekend will see two big events with a $3,000 to win, $300 to start A-Main at Thunder Mountain and then a $2,000 to win event at Utica-Rome.

Sheldon Haudenschild Earns First Ever Arctic Cat All Star Win at Lincoln Speedway

Sheldon Haudenschild Earns First Ever Arctic Cat All Star Win at Lincoln Speedway;

Weekend action resumes at Wilmot Raceway

LINCOLN, Illinois (May 20, 2016) - For the second time in as many starts, Wooster, Ohio’s Sheldon Haudenschild earned a trip to Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions victory lane, this time during a first ever appearance at the Lincoln Speedway in Lincoln, Illinois. Haudenschild took advantage of a lap-17 restart to earn his position at the front of the field, driving around pole sitter Parker Price-Miller on a rubbered-up racing surface to clinch a second consecutive, $5,000, Arctic Cat All Star payday. The pilot of the Southern Pacific Farms/No. 93 now has eight career main event victories with the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions, raising his 2016 win total to two. Parker Price-Miller would hold on to finish second, followed by “Downtown” Danny Holtgraver, his second consecutive All Star podium finish.

“Feels great to get one more of these,” said Sheldon Haudenschild. “I just can’t thank Bonzai and the guys enough for what they do for this team. They work their butt’s off every week and it clearly shows. I have a lot of great sponsors who back this team. Without their help and support, we wouldn’t be here. I just can’t thank them enough.”

Sheldon Haudenschild raced in a podium position during the entire 35-lap main event, getting away third after the initial start before capturing second from Chad Kemenah on lap two. Haudenschild made early challenges for the top spot by lap four, attempting back-to-back slide jobs on leader Parker Price-Miller, but Price-Miller prevailed and maintained control. It would be lap 17 before Haudenschild could make a bid for the top spot stick, driving around the outside of Parker Price-Miller during a single-file restart. Haudenschild controlled the remaining distance, surviving one additional restart on lap 22.

“I’ve seen my dad do it a few times, so I figured I had a shot to make it work,” explained Haudenschild regarding his winning move. “I figured that was my only shot to make it work. I restarted as close as I could to Parker (Price-Miller), worked around him and it stuck. I’m just happy to be in victory lane. We’ll head to Wilmot Raceway tomorrow and try again.”

The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions will continue their trek through the Midwest on Saturday, May 21, with a visit to the Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wisconsin. Arctic Cat All Star competitors will race head-to-head with the Interstate Racing Association (IRA) Outlaw Sprint Series on Saturday night, dueling for a $5,000 top prize during the Fifth Annual IRA/All Star Sprint Challenge. Dale Blaney, the six-time and defending All Star point champion, will lead the charge into Wisconsin on Saturday evening. The Ohio native has earned the last five Arctic Cat All Star main event victories in the “Badger State,” including four consecutive IRA/All Star Sprint Challenges.

Wilmot Raceway will open pit gates for race teams at 12-noon on Saturday, May 21. A mandatory drivers meeting will be hosted at 5:30 pm, followed by warm-ups at 6:15 pm. Racing is scheduled to hit the speedway at 6:45 pm. Those seeking additional information should visit Wilmot Raceway online at www.wilmotraceway.com.

HAMMAKER WINS INSINGER PERFORMANCE FUELS SPRING CHAMPIONSHIP THRILLER; BRIAN MARRIOTT TAKES MASON-DIXON 270CC MICRO-SPRINT WIN; McMULLEN BEST OF STREET STOCKS; CHRONISTER WINS LIMITED STOCKS IN LAST-TURN PASS

HANOVER, PA (5/20/2016) – “This is the hardest place to race in Pennsylvania.  Anyone who doesn’t believe it can come down here.”

So said Doug Hammaker after making it look easy in scoring his second win of the season in the Insinger Performance Fuels Sprint Championship for “358” sprint cars at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

A redraw by the top 12 drivers placed Hammaker fifth for the start.  Hammaker methodically worked his way through the top five as Cody Fletcher was leading the first 23 laps from the pole. Hammaker caught Seth Kearchner for second on lap 17 and drove around Fletcher for the race lead in turn two of a 24th-lap restart.

Fletcher and Seth Kearchner got together on the final turn as the checkered was waving, leading to a mad scramble over the final quarter-lap which didn’t matter, because scoring reverted to the last completed lap for everyone but the winner.

Ninth-starting Mike Bittinger was credited with second, followed by Jeff Halligan, David Holbrook, and hard charger Kevin Nouse (who started 18th).

“I know the World of Outlaws are in town, but we have better racing and I want to thank the fans for coming out,” said Hammaker, “We’re just having fun right now.”

Qualifiers for the 22 “358” sprinters were won by Isaac Sneeringer, Fletcher, and Kearchner.

Brian Marriott assumed the race lead when Cory Myers ran out of fuel entering turn three of lap 17 and drove to the.91-seond win in the 20-lap Maxon-Dixon 270cc micro-sprint feature sponsored by Lucas Oil.

It was Marriott’s first Trail-Way win of the year and the fourth of his TW career.

Steven Cox, Joe Long, Jr., Levi Peck; and Zachary Glass completed the top five.

Polesitter Bill Laughman led the first 14 laps before pulling to the infield two laps later after handing the lead to Cory Myers.  Laughman’s mechanical issues were caused by a hole in the radiator.

 Heats for the 27 micros were won by Nik Gower, Steven Cox, and Brent Bull, with Levi Peck taking the consolation event.

Marshall McMullen held off Zach Myers for his first career win in the 20-lap street stock feature.  The former three-time TW thundercar winner started on the pole but yielded the lead to Jeremy Stremmel for the first 16 laps.  The two switched the lead several times over the final four laps, with McMullen scored the leader each time around.  Zach Myers caught Stremmel for second in the last turns, with  Stremmel, Matt Wampler, and Michael Smith rounding out the top five.

Dan Furman, Myers, and Wampler won qualifying events.
Furman was uninjured in a last-lap crash of the feature event and credited with an 11th-place finish.

Matt Chronister slid under Justin Wagaman in the final turns to score his second win of the year in the 15-lap limited stock feature.  It was Chronister’s 34th career TW win, and the final margin of victory ws just .15 seconds.  Shane Miller, Jason Chronister, and Chad Weaver crossed third through fifth.

Jason Chronister and Julio Perez were heat winners for the 17 limited stocks on hand.

Next Friday, May 27th, the Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic 358 Sprints are back in action at Trail-Way Speedway along with the 600 Micro Sprints, ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends and the Street Stocks. This will be “Camera & Autograph Night” along with “Armed Forces Appreciation Night.” All Armed Forces personnel will receive free general admission with ID. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and heats begin at 7:45 p.m.

The following week, Trail-Way Speedway will be dark Friday night. The following day, Saturday, June 4th, the AMA Motorcycle Short Track makes a return with the 5th Annual Armin Hostetter Classic. Gates for this event open at 3:00 p.m., and racing begins at 6:00 p.m.

Two weeks from today, Friday, June 10th, the 358 Sprints return with the Mason-Dixon 270 Micro Sprints in the “Gary Keifert Memorial” paying $1,200 to win. Also scheduled to race are the Limited Stocks and the Street Stocks. This will be “York County Racing Club Night,” where all card-holding members will receive $3 off their admission fee.

LANCE DEWEASE DOMINATES OPENING NIGHT OF MORGAN CUP WEEKEND BEATING WORLD OF OUTLAWS AT WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY

MECHANICSBURG, PA – Lance Dewease blasted by Greg Hodnett in turn three for the lead and then dominated the remaining 16 laps to win the Craftsman World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series feature Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway.

Dewease, of Fayetteville, earned $8,000 for his second straight Grove win driving for Donnie Kreitz. It was his 83rd career Grove win.

He was running third on lap seven behind Daryn Pittman and leader Greg Hodnett. He blasted under Pittman entering turn three to take second. He made the same impressive move the next time around to take the lead from Hodnett.

“I had to move up and that’s how I caught them,” said Dewease. “I actually wasn’t bad in the middle. I knew sooner or later it was going to rubber-up around the bottom, so I went back down and felt pretty good there. Greg was kind of just sitting there. When you’re leading, it’s so hard to move around, and the guy in second has all the advantage in the world. Greg was good all night and we just happened to get to him before it rubbered-up.”

Hodnett started on the pole and took the lead from Joey Saldana on the opening lap of the 25-lap main event. Dewease started third, but fell to fourth behind Pittman on the opening lap.
Pittman and Saldana raced hard for second with Pittman gaining the spot. Dewease passed Saldana on the frontstretch to take third with four laps completed.

Dewease was searching the track surface for speed and found some. He drove hard under Pittman into turn three and took the runner-up spot as lap eight was completed. He had Hodnett in his sights now and made the identical move the next lap to take the lead.

He caught lapped traffic with 13 laps completed, but the yellow flag flew for Tim Shaffer.
Dewease picked the bottom for the double-file restart and drove away from Hodnett on the restart. In only two laps, his lead was nearly three seconds.

The bottom lane became the preferred line over the final laps and Dewease was stuck behind slower cars allowing Hodnett to close. Hodnett tried the outside lane in turn one on the final lap, but couldn’t make up any more ground.

Dewease scored the win by 0.843 seconds over Hodnett.
“At the end, I was struggling a little bit,” said Dewease. “I didn’t know if Greg could do anything outside the rubber. I made sure I didn’t get on anybody’s rear bumper.”

“He really hauled that thing in there,” said Kreitz of Dewease’s third turn passes. “He didn’t hesitate and I couldn’t believe how hard he hauled it in and got both those guys. They were both great moves.”

Defending and seven-time Outlaws champion Donny Schatz would finish third ahead of Pittman and Danny Dietrich.

Saldana, Doug Esh, Shane Stewart, Ryan Smith and T.J. Stutts rounded out the top 10.
Saldana set overall quick time with a lap of 17.186 seconds. He was in the first flight of cars. Hodnett had quick time in the second flight of cars with a lap of 17.524 seconds.

Eight-lap heat races for the 39-car field were won by Saldana, Dewease, Hodnett and Pittman. Hodnett won the dash and Outlaws point leader Brad Sweet won the Last Chance Showdown.
Weather permitting, the Grove returns to action Saturday night for the $17,000 to win Morgan Cup sanctioned by the Outlaws.

Dewease Propels Posse to Williams Grove Win

Dewease Dominates Opening Night at Williams Grove Speedway

Defeats Outlaws to even the score in fiercely contested annual feud

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. - May 20, 2016 - Lance Dewease exited his car to loud cheers from the Pennsylvania Posse-favored crowd after he dominated the final 15 laps of the 25-lap feature to claim the World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series victory at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night.

Dewease, who passed fellow Posse driver Greg Hodnett for the win, became just the second non-Outlaw driver to capture a checkered flag in a series race this year, joining Kerry Madsen who swept the Eldora Speedway races earlier this month.

"It feels great [to win at Williams Grove]," Dewease, a Fayetville, Pa. -native said. "It's been a long time coming here, and like I said, I can't thank these guys enough - they have done a great job over the winter getting prepared for each race. We're only going to run about 30 shows, which suits me and suits them, and we have to stay prepared and fresh for that.

"A lot of guys win at 50 - I never said this was a young man's sport. It's a blessing to drive this thing, and I say that every time. I am just very blessed and honored that they gave me a shot and I can't thank Donny and Linda Kreitz enough.

Posse fans were especially jubilant as second-place finisher Hodnett held off Thursday night's winner Donny Schatz to give the Pennsylvanian drivers the sweep of the top two finishing positions.

"We just came up a little short," Hodnett, a Spring Grove, Pa. -native said. "Lance [Dewease] and those guys have been good and I just needed to do something different - not sure what.

"The guys did a good job with the car, I just let them down."




The feud kicked-off early in the night when the Outlaws and Posse split the quick-time awards with Joey Saldana fastest in the first flight and Hodnett fastest in the second.

The back-and-forth battle did not end there, as the two fierce rivals split the victories in the heat races evenly with the Outlaws and Posse each scoring two apiece.

For the second night in-a-row, the Outlaws were aided by the luck of the dash invert draw, as Saldana remained on the pole-position following an invert of zero. Unfortunately for Saldana, he was unable to hold off Hodnett in the six-lap race, as the Posse driver claimed the victory and the pole for the feature.

When the green-flag fell for the feature, Hodnett, in the Lelands.com/Eagle Steel No. 27 jumped out to an early lead, as second-place starter Saldana slid back. Daryn Pittman, who started fourth, quickly moved up to the runner-up position and applied pressure on Hodnett for the top spot.

Towards the halfway point in the race, Pittman's car started to fade as No. 69K Kreitz Oval Track Parts/Sharman Builders car of Dewease quietly worked his way around the Outlaw driver for second.

Dewease, who started in the third position, bided his time in the early stages of the race and then turned on the speed in the latter half to challenge Hodnett for the lead.

Once Dewease got to the rear bumper of the leader, he was able to muscle his way around Hodnett for the top position with only 15 laps left in the feature.

The Posse driver turned on cruise control for the remaing laps, as he maintained a comfortable lead over Hodnett, who had his hands full with the No. 15 Bad Boy/Chevrolet Performance of Schatz.

Hodnett held off Schatz but was never able to challenge Dewease, who dominated the final 15 laps to capture the checkered flag on the opening night of the Morgan Cup weekend at Williams Grove Speedway.

"I had to move around and that's how I caught [Greg Hodnett]," Dewease said. "Greg was just kind of sitting there, and when you're leading it's so hard to move around, so the guy in second has all the advantage.

"Greg was pretty good all night, we just got to him before it could rubber up and got around him on the bottom. At the end I was struggling a little bit in the lapped cars - I didn't know if Greg could do anything outside of the rubber, so the last few laps I just made sure I didn't get right on somebodies bumper."

For the second year in-a-row, Hodnett led laps early but had to settle for the runner-up position.

"I was trying to run the top down here and kind of float around and it was working okay, just not quite good enough," Hodnett said. "Lance and those guys have been doing good and they deserve to win. Hopefully we get our car better and maybe contend with them."

Winner of this event in 2015, seven-time World of Outlaws champion Schatz scored his second podium finish in two nights after being barred from a top-three finish since USA Raceway on April 18.

"Third is not where we wanted to be, we wanted to win the race," Schatz said. "We weren't good enough to win the race, Lance was awfully good and Greg was good. 25-laps was what it was, maybe tomorrow night will be a little bit longer and we will have a little better shot at it.

"The guys did an awesome job trying to get me a better car than what we had earlier in the night. We got ourselves qualified well, that's so important now. We're just going to work hard tonight and come back tomorrow and be better."

Schatz Beats Posse at Lincoln Speedway

Schatz Captures Gettysburg Clash at Lincoln Speedway

Outlaws land first blow in year-long war with Pennsylvania Posse

ABBOTTSTOWN, Pa. - May 19, 2016 - Seven-time World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series champion Donny Schatz managed to do something that only one other series driver has been able to do since 1997: out-muscle the Pennsylvania Posse on their home turf and claim the Gettysburg Clash at Lincoln Speedway.

Schatz's victory, his sixth of the season, gives the Outlaw drivers the upper hand as the annual feud over sprint car supremacy has officially kicked-off.

"We want to win everywhere we go, but man when you come to Pennsylvania the fans here are feisty and you hear a lot of swear words directed to you - that's what this is about," Schatz said. "This is a free country and I am glad there are people who can voice their opinion that they hate you or love you.

"It makes such a great comradery and it lifts up the competition level of the PA Posse racing on a weekly level and the World of Outlaws' racing. That's what this is about, to keep pushing each other to get better, and that's what makes our sport what it is and makes it as dynamic as it is."

The Posse members did not make it easy on the Outlaw driver as they fiercely fought all night to protect their home turf from the invaders, eventually placing two drivers on the podium, Danny Dietrich and Brent Marks.

"We just go to every race and try to win like a normal Friday or Saturday night," Dietrich, a Gettysburg, Pa. -native said. "The biggest prize right now is Knoxville Speedway is offering some beer for the first Posse driver to win an Outlaw show.

"All jokes aside though, we want to get a win against these guys - it would mean a lot."

A Meyerstown, Pa. -native, third-place finisher Brent Marks added:

"The rivalry between us means a lot because they're the best in the business and you have to race so much more aggressively against these guys because that's how they race, and it is really tough. Its respect on both sides, we race them hard and they race us hard back. It's cool, the fans are really into it and it's a cool atmosphere to be a part of and that's what makes racing in Pennsylvania so much fun when the Outlaws come into town."



When the night started, the fight for quick-time was a one sided affair, as the Posse members swept both flights of qualifying with Danny Dietrich fastest in the first and Lucas Wolfe fastest in the second.

However, as the night progressed, the Outlaw drivers continued to encroach on the Posse dominance at the top of the charts, as the two split the four heat races with each winning two.

After showing they could challenge the Posse in the speed department, the Outlaws were aided by a little luck as the dash invert draw placed Schatz, in the Bad Boy/Chevy Performance No. 15, on the pole for the six-lap race, while sliding Dietrich, in the Sandoe's Fruit Market/Hickory Run Orchards No. 48, to the fourth position.

Dietrich rallied in the dash to finish second, but he could not catch Schatz, who dominated the race and landed on the pole-position for the 35-lap feature race.

Once the green flag dropped in the feature, Schatz managed to escape from Dietrich and Joey Saldana who started third. Saldana slipped back in the opening laps as a hard-charging Marks, in the M&M Painting and Construction/Weaver's Body Shop No. 19M, made his way to the front of the field from his sixth starting position.

The feature ran caution free for all 35 laps, but Dietrich and Marks did not need the yellow flag to reel in the leader.

In the closing stages of the race, both Posse members had managed to close to Schatz's back bumper for the lead as they fought through heavy lapped traffic.

The race came down to the final lap, as second-place Dietrich pulled to the inside of Schatz exiting turn four but came up just short of muscling around the leader, as Schatz was able to hold on and claim the opening round of the Outlaws vs. Pennsylvania Posse rivalry at Lincoln Speedway.

"It's great to win here at Lincoln, especially after never winning here before," Schatz said. "Everybody was pretty equal and you can see that because not too many cars got lapped during the race and that's just the nature of the beast. That front-row starting spot was key, as it has been at a lot of races this year, and I am glad I could capitalize on it.

"The expectation is you want to win every night, and it's not going to happen. We haven't been that bad but for the standards this team has put forth the last several years, it kind of seems that way. We have tried several things, and I guess to be in the situation we are in right now where we can try these new things and make ourselves better, that's going to pay off for us at the end of the year."

Dietrich, who won beat the Outlaws on a Summer Nationals night at Williams Grove Speedway in 2015, came up just short of winning the race he dominated in 2012 and 2013.

"This was a good run for the team," Dietrich said. "To be able to run second out of 38 or 39 cars it's definitely a good feeling. We're satisfied with our finish tonight, just too bad it couldn't be one position better.

"Donny [Schatz] is a heck of a racer, catching him and passing him was going to be a whole other problem. He was in the preferred on the start so that made things a little tougher, but congrats to him and we're going to move on to The Grove tomorrow."

Marks podium finish gives the Posse drivers two of the three top spots, and three of the top-five finishing positions.

"We had a pretty good run tonight," Marks said. "We haven't been too good here the past couple of years, so to run like we did here was pretty good for us.

"I got to second there, got past Danny [Dietrich] in turn three, and I thought he was going to slide me back, so I drove it in too hard and just got over the ledge a little bit and he got back by me. I felt like I blew the race there because I felt like we had a good enough car that if we got some laps we could run down Donny. Don't know if I could have done anything - maybe shown him my nose and put some pressure on him, but never got the opportunity. Other than that, I felt like we had a good run against the Outlaws and I can't complain."

The World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series continue their swing through the Keystone State as the series heads to Mechanicsburg for a double-header weekend at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, May 20 and Saturday May 21.
