RICO ABREU SCORES $12,500 FOR DIRT CLASSIC INDIANA VICTORY AT KOKOMO SPEEDWAY!

KOKOMO, IN (July 23, 2016) - Rico Abreu scored big on Saturday night at Kokomo Speedway in Kokomo, Indiana, earning the inaugural Dirt Classic Indiana title worth $12,500 against Tony Stewart’s Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions. Abreu took command officially on lap 24 of the 40-lap main event, using a textbook slide job to work beyond Wooster, Ohio’s Sheldon Haudenschild. The victory, earned from the inside of row three, gives Abreu three on the season with the Arctic Cat All Stars, increasing his career total to five.

“I just want to thank all of the fans for coming out tonight,” Rico Abreu said. “There was a lot stuff going on in Indianapolis. For you guys to choose to come racing with us instead is really cool and we all really appreciate it. I gotta thank the Dirt Classic staff, Tony Stewart, and the All Stars for making this happen. We just really enjoy doing this. Even on the bad nights, we still really enjoy this, and we should, because we are all pretty lucky to just be out here racing.”

Lined up according to points accumulated on Friday and Saturday, Friday night’s Prelude to the Dirt Classic Indiana winner Christopher Bell and five-time Arctic Cat All Star winner Sheldon Haudenschild led the 24 feature starters to green. Haudenschild jumped to the early advantage, leading Bell and Rico Abreu at the completion of lap one. Unfortunately for Haudenschild, early momentum would cease with red flag conditions halting the field on lap two. Randy Hannagan, Bryan Clauson, and Kraig Kinser were all involved and unharmed.

After a caution on lap two for a spinning Tyler Courtney, green flags waved for a third time with Sheldon Haudenschild still in charge, once again followed by Christopher Bell and Rico Abreu. Abreu made a big bid for the runner-up spot on lap four and made it stick, using another one of his textbook slide jobs in turns one and two.

Meanwhile, Haudenschild continued to roll the very topside of the speedway, opening up his advantage by a near straightaway. Traffic started to come into play for the first time on lap nine, slowing some of Haudenschild’s momentum. Abreu tried to work traffic as quickly as he could, sliding two and three cars at a time, but still had trouble closing in on the Haudenschild Racing/No. 93 entry.

By lap 24, Abreu worked his way within reach of the top spot and capitalized, using a monster slider to work underneath Haudenschild for the lead in traffic. Once obtaining control, Abreu never stumbled, surviving the remaining 16 circuits, as well as two additional cautions, to earn himself a trip to Dirt Classic Indiana victory lane. The St. Helena, California, native navigated the very top-shelf of the speedway for the majority of his campaign at the front of the field, opening his advantage to a near straightaway even during traffic.

“I was pretty good everywhere here tonight,” Abreu explained. “I could run the top and I could run the bottom. I knew the bottom was going to slow down eventually so I decided to work my way up to the top. I thought I heard somebody working up on the outside of me. I just worried about getting to the top and staying smooth. I had so much fun here tonight. Kokomo always puts on a great race. I am very happy to win in a winged sprint car here.”

After a four car battle for the last two podium spots, Jamie Veal and Chad Kemenah emerged. Veal worked his way forward from fourth to finish second, scoring a second consecutive podium performance during the Dirt Classic Indiana doubleheader at Kokomo Speedway. Kemenah climbed from the outside of row three to finish third.

Up next on the 2016 schedule, the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions will return to the Keystone State for the I-79 Summer Shootout presented by Classic Ink USA; a trio of events along the Interstate 79 corridor in Western Pennsylvania. “America’s Series” will visit three facilities during their three day campaign, each hosting a full, Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions program worth $5,000 to the main event winner. In addition, a $3,000 point fund will also be awarded to the weekend’s top racers.

The I-79 Summer Shootout presented by Classic Ink USA will take shape on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, July 29-31, beginning with action the the Eriez Speedway in Erie, Pennsylvania, on Friday night, July 29. Action will resume on Saturday, July 30, at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway in Imperial, Pennsylvania, followed by a visit to the Tri-City Raceway Park near Franklin, Pennsylvania, on Sunday, July 31.

Eric Tomocek Powers To The Front For 360 Makeup Victory Smith Earns 360 Nightcap Win With Late Race Pass On Malle Shuster

FRYE TAKES RACE 4 IN MOON SHINE CAMO ROUTE 35 LATE MODEL SERIES; NASCAR VETERAN STREMME DRIVES TO MID-ATLANTIC MODIFIED CHECKERS; WRAY WINS FIRST CAREER PRO STOCK RACE


SELINSGROVE, Pa. – On a hot summer night, nearly 100 race cars packed the pits at Selinsgrove Speedway Saturday with a pair of 360 sprint car features, a Moon Shine Camo Route 35 Late Model Challenge Series race, the Mid-Atlantic modifieds, and pro stocks all on a blockbuster racing program.

Eric Tomacek of Abbottstown and Mark Smith of Sunbury split the victories in the 25-lap sprint car races, while Coleby Frye of Dover won his first race of the year in the 25-lap Moon Shine Camo Route 35 Late Model Challenge Series. NASCAR veteran David Stremme of Davidson, N.C., drove to a victory in the first-ever 20-lap Mid-Atlantic modified series race, with Kurt Wray of Beavertown posting his first career pro stock win in the division’s 15-lap feature.

Selinsgrove Speedway will present the 16th Annual Mach 1 Chassis National Open for 360 sprint cars Saturday, July 30, paying $10,000 to win as part of the inaugural Mid-Atlantic Crown Series “Weekend of Money” that includes the Lelands.com 360 Nationals at Williams Grove Speedway Friday, July 29, and concludes with the Cole Cup at the Utica Rome Speedway in New York Sunday, July 31. The super late models and pro stocks will also be on the July 30 racing card at Selinsgrove Speedway.

Eric Parker took the lead early in the makeup feature for the 360 Sprint Cars. The race was being run from the Jeff's Auto Body & Recycling Center Driver & Fan Appreciation Night July 16th. Michael Walter wrestled the top spot away from Parker on lap six. Eric Tomecek also moved by Parker for the second spot a few laps later. Mark Smith was in a battle for the third spot when his engine left go setting up a lap 17 restart.

Just before the yellow flag Tomecek used the inside line to drive into the top spot. Robbie Stillwaggon took over the second spot in a short run before another yellow flag was needed. Stillwaggon tried the inside line on the restart, but Tomecek drove back into the race lead on the outside to stay for good. Davie Franek moved past Stillwaggon for second at the end of the event. Jason Shultz and Walter rounded out the top five finishers.

Sixth through tenth place spots went to TJ Stutts, Adam Carberry, Derek Locke, Ryan Kissinger, and Eric Parker. Ryan Kissinger was the race’s IBEW hard charger. Kissinger went from 22nd to finish in ninth.

The 360 Sprint cars competed in a full show after the makeup feature was completed. The Newville Family of Companies bonus was again on the line for 358 Sprint Car teams going into the night as well. Mallie Shuster started from the front row and showed the way early on. Adam Carberry reeled in the race leader in lap traffic, but then tangled with a lap car ending his bid for the win.

Eric Parker had his 358 engine in on Saturday night and Parker was in a battle for the lead with Mallie Shuster on lap 13 when Shuster was in lap traffic. Parker slide a little too high on the race track and Davie Franek slid by. Franek's time in the podium spot was short lived as his right rear tire blew out.

Shuster continued to show the way with Parker and 11th place starter Mark Smith now in the mix. Smith worked by Parker and looked like he was out of time to take the race lead away until a lap 22 yellow flag was thrown. Smith used a swooping move on the front stretch to take away the top spot from Shuster on the restart and drive to his third win of the season. This was the final race before next weekend’s $10,000-to-win National Open for the 360 Sprint Cars. Shuster, Derek Locke, Larry Kelleher, and TJ Stutts were the top five finishers.

Jason Shultz, Eric Parker, Robbie Stillwaggon, Mike Walter, and Ryan Kissinger rounded out the top ten. Eric Tomecek, Ryan Kissinger, and Mallie Shuster were the heat race winners for the 27 car field. The IBEW hard charger for the second feature was Phil Walter.

Coleby Frye had revenge on his mind when he pulled into Selinsgrove Speedway on Saturday night in round four of the Moon Shine Camo Route 35 Challenge Series. Frye almost grabbed a win the last time the Late Models had a Route 35 Challenge Series ace at the track, but fell a little short. The story was written a little different on Saturday night.

Frye made a big move on the outside early and began chase of race leader Tony Adams. Adams led until lap 18 when Frye made a move on what he called in victory lane the only mistake Tony Adams made all night. Once out front Frye fended off all challengers including a late race charge from Andrew Yoder. Jeff Rine got to the third spot, but could only watch the leaders drive away as he lost a right rear tire at the end of the feature running third. Frye, Yoder, Donnie Schick, Adams, and Mike Lupfer were the top five finishers.

Bryan Bernheisel came across in sixth just ahead of Rine who entered the night the Moon Shine Camo Route 35 points leader. Steve Campbell, Dave Brouse Jr, and Chad Hollenback were the top ten across the finish line. Andrew Yoder, Donnie Schick, and Tony Adams won heat races for the field with Derrick Casner the consolation winner.

David Stemme used a dominate run to claim the first checkered flag for the Mid Atlantic Modifieds ever at Selinsgrove Speedway. Stremme started in the eighth spot and charged into the race lead on lap four. A caution flag on lap seven reset the field, but Stremme pulled away again when the green flag was thrown. Modified point leader Mike Potosky pulled into second before the yellow flew again on lap 15.
Potosky slowed and dropped out on lap 18 as Stremme drove to the win. Rick Hulson was second followed by Dan Davies, Gary Long, and Mike Reynolds. Heat races for the 18 car field went to Hulson and Long.

Brandon Moser had mechanical issues in last week's A&A Auto Stores Pro Stock competition. This week he wasted no time bolting into the race lead when the green flag was thrown on the feature event. Moser slide a little too high after a few laps of leading and the lead fell into the hands of Matt Hornberger. Hornberger did not hold the hot potato long before Tommy Slanker took over. Slanker did all he could to run the inside line, but Brad Mitch was able to drive by into the top spot.

Mitch was in a good spot until the yellow flew on the last lap, setting up a one lap shootout. Mitch didn't get the start he needed and Kurt Wray drove by to lead the event. Wray was looking for his career Selinsgrove Speedway win. Although the record book will show he only led one lap, it was the most important one. Wray made the inside move by Mitch for the win. Slanker, Hornberger, Nate Stroup, and Jeff Ceballo were the top five. Mitch was sixth. He was trailed by Matt Wilson, Jeremy Kline, Lori Croop, and John Troxell. Slanker and Mitch took heat race checkered flags. 17 Pro Stocks were in completion.

STEVE FANNASY BECOMES EIGHTH DIFFERENT SUPER SPORTSMAN WINNER WITH SUSQUEHANNA WIN Randy Christine, Jr. Repeats in 358 LM; Travis McClelland Legends Winner and Chris Anderson Tops Road Warriors

Steve Fannasy added his name to the list of winners this season in Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman competition at Susquehanna Speedway.

The Dauphin, PA racer became the eighth different winner in ten Super Sportsman features this year after leading the second half of Saturday night’s 25-lap feature.

Fannasy and Justin Foster led the Sportsman field to the green as Foster grabbed early control of the event. Foster would lead the first 11 circuits before encountering trouble on the 12th lap when he hit the fourth turn wall to bring out a caution.

That turned the lead over to Fannasy, who then kept the field at bay over the final 13 laps to take his first win of the season aboard his own No. 11.

New Jersey racer Tom Wyckoff started fourth and finished in the runner-up spot ahead of sixth starting Chad Smith, 11th starting Scott Dellinger and fifth starting Rick Barr.

Chad Criswell crossed sixth after starting 14th with Tony Jackson seventh ahead of 16th starter Russ Mitten, Doug Dodson and Jay Fannasy.

Heats for the 28 Super Sportsman were won by Teddy Thomas, Steve Fannasy and Justin Foster.

Manchester’s Randy Christine, Jr. made it two straight wins in 358 Late Model action as he sped to the win in the 25 lap event.

Christine started third but led flag to flag and held on through five caution periods during the feature.

Following Christine under the checkers were Dave Latsha, 13th starter Chase Billet, 18th starting Randy Stoudt and 12th starting Troy Miller with Travis Mease, Sam Gallagher, Matt Murphy, Patrick McClane and Steve Billet rounding out the top 10 finishers.

Donnie Farlling, Gallagher and Latsha were heat race winners. Farlling turned the wheel of his late model over to Jake Jones for the feature event.

Travis McClelland took the lead on lap three of the ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends 20 lap feature and scored the feature win over Hayden Pascoe, Scott Houdeshell, Reed Salony and Rick Hartwig.

Salony and Mason Chaney won heats for the 18 car field.

Chris Anderson led all 15 laps of the non stop Road Warrior feature to become the fourth different winner in as many races. He was followed by Justin Wagaman, Travis Brown, Robbie Carroll and Jeff Skenosen.

Anderson and Carroll won heats for the 16 Road Warriors.

Dewease Scores Win for Posse at the Grove

A Little Luck and A Lot of Skill Help Lance Dewease to Summer Nationals Win

Retains coveted Morgan Cup trophy for the Pennsylvania Posse and pockets $25,000

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. - July 23, 2016 - Lance Dewease's World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series victory in the the Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals finale at Williams Grove Speedway on Saturday night took a lot of hard work and a little good luck.

Dewease, who spent much of the first two-thirds of the feature looking for a line around Joey Saldana, battled to the lead on one restart, had do it again after the caution flew before a lap was completed and then, after the caution flew on the final lap for Aaron Ott, who spun near the start/finish line, ran out of fuel as the open red was called.

"I was out (of fuel) about six laps before that," Dewease said. "It kept shutting off going down the straight away. I just slowed way out of the throttle so I could try to make it to the end, took the white, it sputtered a little going up the back stretch, I thought I was good and we come of four for the checkered and the yellow comes out. I thought, man, we're done… Everything went our way tonight."

In addition to claiming $25,000, Dewease also kept the Morgan Cup at Williams Grove for the local, Pennsylvania Posse fans. The win is the second of the season for Dewease who stood in victory lane at Williams Grove on May 20.

Notably, the win was the 10th series victory of Dewease's career which tied him with Johnny Herrera and his car owner Don Kreitz Jr. for 33rd on the all-time wins list.

Daryn Pittman, who won the previous night, had the early momentum as he scored the quick time award, a Heat race win and the Dash win which put him on the pole of the 30-lap feature.





It was Joey Saldana though who jumped out to the early lead in his No. 83 Roth Motorsports car. Dewease, who started in fourth got around Greg Hodnett for third on lap seven and then, on a restart, powered his No. 69K Kreitz Oval Track Parts/Sharman Builders car around the No. 9 Great Clips car of Daryn Pittman to take over second.

Through multiple restarts, Saldana held off Dewease. With 11 laps remaining, the No. 48 of Danny Dietrich brought out the caution after spinning on the front straight. When the field returned to green Dewease battled to the lead but before a lap could be completed, the caution again flew after a large piece of a nose wing ended up in the middle of the racing groove in turn two.

Saldana took the lead back but was not able to hold off Dewease, as the No. 69K again battled to the lead. As Saldana fell off Pittman took over the second and David Gravel took over third.

Dewease cruised through the final laps, building a large lead on Pittman in second. As Dewease rounded the final corner, the caution again flew for Ott who had spun and stopped at the start/finish line.

Just as series officials called the open red after hitting the maximum number of laps on a fuel load, Dewease ran out of fuel. After refueling for the final start, the field restacked single file with Dewease leading Pittman, and by that point, the No. 51S Trans East Equipment/Miller Bros. Chevrolet car of Stevie Smith.

Dewease easily retained the top spot on the green-white-checkered. As he crossed the finish line much of the front grandstand rose to their feet to cheer for the No. 69K. Pittman, a former regular in Central Pennsylvania, finished in second with Smith in third.

With Kreitz and Hall-of-Fame mechanic Davey Brown at his side, Dewease celebrated the win.

"Everything is about (Don Kreitz) and (Davey Brown) on this deal," Dewease said. "I'm just the guy driving it and I'm just having so much fun this year. It's just a pleasure."

For their part, Brown and Kreitz were jubilant in victory lane.

"I just couldn't ask for a better driver," Brown said. "He's just so good, I can't believe it."

"I can hardly talk," Kreitz said. "I've got tears in my eyes. Lance did a hell of a job driving the car and the moves he made in it."

The win ties the Outlaws vs. Pennsylvania Posse battle at two wins to two wins. The two sides will pick up the battle again at the end of September for the National Open at Williams Grove.

Pittman, who closed out the weekend with a win and second place, said he just was not quite quick enough to start the feature, but commended his Kasey Kahne Racing with Mike Curb team for a solid weekend.

"We got beat by a better car and that car has been hard to beat all year," Pittman said of Dewease. "We got one on him last night by starting in front of him. I finally found a decent line there at the end and felt like I could at least maintain with him and sort of keep his pace but at the end of the day he was just quicker than us."

Christopher Bell Earns Career First Arctic Cat All Star Victory During Prelude to the Dirt Classic Indiana

KOKOMO, IN (July 22, 2016) - For the first time in nearly ten years, the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions invaded the famed Kokomo Speedway in Kokomo, Indiana, in an attempt to tame the Hoosier State’s “Baddest Bullring” during the inaugural Dirt Classic Indiana presented by Tony Stewart. The weekend doubleheader launched officially on Friday night, July 22, with 37 Arctic Cat All Star sprint cars making the call. When the dust settled, it was recent Tony Stewart Racing hired gun Christopher Bell at the top of the heap, leading all 35 laps on the Kokomo Speedway quarter-mile to score his first ever All Star victory worth $5,000. Rico Abreu finished just behind Bell, followed by Aussie invader Jamie Veal.

“It’s every kid’s dream to drive a race car for Tony Stewart. I’m just glad we were able to get it done tonight,” Bell explained in victory lane. “These guys gave me an awesome car tonight. It got a little tricky there in traffic because you really have to let up your momentum to figure out how to work around the drivers in front of you. I almost gave it away there at one point, but we were able to get by that and park ourselves in victory lane.”

Christopher Bell, piloting the Tony Stewart Racing/No. 14, jumped out to an early advantage ahead of recent Indianapolis 500 starter Bryan Clauson and Rico Abreu at the completion of lap one. After a pair of cautions, which halted action on lap two and lap three, green flag conditions would return with Christopher Bell maintaining his position at the front of the field. The Norman, Oklahoma, native extended his advantage quickly, using the very topside of the Kokomo quarter-mile. Even when traffic started to intensify, Bell kept his composure, moving to various parts of the surface to navigate traffic. At one point, Bell’s advantage stretched to nearly a straightaway.

Meanwhile, action for second, third, fourth, and fifth intensified. Bryan Clauson, Brady Bacon, Rico Abreu, and Chad Kemenah all battled continuously, utilizing slide jobs in turns one and two, as well as turns three and four, in an attempt to advance positions. By the time caution lights reappeared on lap 15, Bryan Clauson, who started on the outside of the front row, settled himself into the runner-up position, with Chad Kemenah, the main event’s fifth starter, just behind, each chasing Bell’s Tony Stewart Racing entry.

After the caution on lap 15, green flag conditions would return once again. Christopher Bell returned to the topside of the speedway, using clean air and an open track once again to his advantage. Bryan Clauson continued to chase the No. 14 from the runner-up spot, with Jamie Veal working his way forward from sixth to battle for third by lap 22. Veal’s campaign in third was eventually challenged and taken over by Rico Abreu, using a traditional Kokomo Speedway slide job.

Unfortunately for Bell, main event action would come to a stop three laps before the finish, this time for Bryan Clauson. Clauson, who was now racing hard with Rico Abreu for second in the running order, made contact with the turn four wall, sending the Matt Wood Racing/Cancer Treatment Centers of America/No. 17W entry for a ride, ultimately bringing out the red flag. Abreu would inherit second, just ahead of Jamie Veal.

Despite the distraction, Christopher Bell would keep control and lead the last three circuits to capture the $5,000 top prize, capping off a near clean sweep; qualifying sixth quick, winning his respective heat race, winning the dash, and dominating 35-lap main event.

The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions will continue their Kokomo Speedway invasion on Saturday evening, July 23, with the Dirt Classic Indiana finale. The $12,500-to-win showcase will feature a unique, non-points format for the Arctic Cat All Stars, utilizing two sets of heat races, each accumulating points to help set the lineup for the evening’s main event. The Dirt Classic Indiana winner will take home the cash, as well as a golden ticket; receiving an automatic bid to start in the Dirt Classic Ohio main event at Attica Raceway Park over Labor Day weekend.

Kokomo Speedway pit gates will swing back open at 3:00 pm on Saturday afternoon, July 23. The Dirt Classic Indiana drivers meeting will begin at 6, followed by hot laps at 7. Those seeking additional information should visit Dirt Classic live on the Web at www.dirtclassic.com. Other news can be found online at www.kokomospeedway.net. If weather becomes a factor, the Dirt Classic Indiana program will be moved to Sunday, July 24 with similar start times. Information will be released if necessary.

No Panic in Franek at Georgetown on Friday Night


Davie "No Panic" Franek used a last lap pass of Delaware native Kevin Darling to take win #7 on the year and win #4 on the year with the United Racing Club. With the win Franek increases his points lead to 71 over 2nd place Robbie Stillwaggon.

With 15 United Racing Club sprint cars signed into the pits on Friday night, two heat races were needed to set the 25 lap feature event starting line up. Heat race wins went to the Victory Auto Glass #63 of Josh Weller and the R&S Concrete, Paving and Site Contractors #47 of United Racing Club Rookie Adam Carberry.

With the "4" invert pill drawn by heat race #1 winner Josh Weller, the front row was comprised of the Ken Darling & Sons Sewer, Aquaflow Pumps and Design #9D of Kevin Darling and the Dave Franek Auto Sales and current URC Points Leader #28f Davie Franek. After the initial start was called back, Darling who was only making his 3rd appearance of the 2016 season quickly jumped to the outside of Franek taking command of the lead. Darling lead Franek, followed by Josh Weller and former URC Champion and defending 305 sprint car champion Mike Haggenbottom.

With Darling in command and now lapping cars around lap 7, a lap 9 caution for URC Rookie Adam Carberry brought the 28f of Franek to Darlings back bumper. Darling, a URC veteran, was not intimidated by one of the hottest 360 drivers in the nation, and at the drop of the green for the restart, both Darling and Franek were side by side entering turn 1. Franek slid up the track a bit, but Darling stayed in it and pulled Franek coming off of turn 2 and into the lead going into turn 3.

With Darling in command, also on the move was the GEI Enterprises, Valley Forge Inc, Bill Gallagher owned #5g of 9 time URC Champion Curt Michael. Michael who started in the 10th position was shown in 7th position at the halfway point and up to 5th with 5 to go eventually finishing in the 4th position.

With the two laps to go flags showing at the flagger stand, it appeared that Darling was on his way to his first victory of 2016, but when Darling came to the white flag, going into turn one, his left front touched a lapped car of Brett Michalski. Darling tried to go around Michalski on the high side, and the two were wheel to wheel coming off of turn 2.

With another lapped car of Jason Cherry to the inside of the racetrack, Franek who had now closed the gap on Darling, didn't hesitate and split the lapped cars going down the backstretch. All Darling could do was watch the 28f shoot by to his left and follow him into turn 3. With Darling not being able to mount a charge, the 28f of Franek crossed under the checkered flags first and brought home win #7 on the year.

The United Racing Club has had many on the edge of your seat races in 2016 (Weller going wheel to wheel with Mark Smith at Big Diamond, Stillwaggon and Smith battling it out just a few short weeks ago at Bedford) and now tonight's last lap pass of Davie Franek on Kevin Darling.

Former URC regular Chris Coyle made his return to sprint car racing (close to 5 years since last URC start) on Friday night. Coyle who started 4th in heat #2, finished, 3rd and started 6th in the 25 lap main event, finished in the 7th position in the Fred Kennedy owned #56.

Results: 1. Davie Franek, 2. Kevin Darling, 3. Josh Weller, 4. Curt Michael, 5. Davey Sammons, 6. Robbie Stillwaggon, 7. Chris Coyle, 8. Justin Whittall, 9. Troy Betts, 10. Brett Michalski, 11. Will Eggimann, 12. Jason Cherry, 13. Michael Haggenbottom, 14. Adam Carberry, 15. Jason Clauss.

Daryn Pittman Pounces on the Posse at Williams Grove Summer Nationals

Posse regulars Dewease and Hodnett round out the podium

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. - July 22, 2016 - Daryn Pittman held off the Pennsylvania Posse in Friday night's Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals opener at Williams Grove Speedway to score his seventh World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series victory of the season.

Posse regulars Lance Dewease and Greg Hodnett both tried to run down the No. 9 Great Clips car, but Pittman held tough and gave the Outlaws their second win in Posse territory this season.

"I don't know if I'm more nervous with (Hodnett) behind me or (Dewease) - neither one of them you want to see on the scoreboard," Pittman said in victory lane. "Man, we won again at Williams Grove… this is a special race track to win at."

Pittman was fast all night taking a late run in the qualifying flight two that catapulted him to the top of the charts and his fifth quick time award of the season. After a second place finish in Heat three, Pittman was poised to start the Dash in sixth until the Dash inversion draw which ultimately put Pittman on the Dash pole.

When the initial green fell on the night's 25-lap feature, Pittman jumped out to a strong early lead as Hodnett battled past Aaron Ott to take over the second position. Through a series of early cautions, Jason Johnson battled into the third position and then had to deal with a challenge from Dewease who drove his No. 69K Henry R. Sharman Builders, Kreitz Racing machine into the third spot and then second following a mid-race caution.

When the field returned to green, contact between Schatz and Johnson caused Johnson to flip and brought out a red flag, the final stoppage of the night.



Through the remaining laps, Pittman built up a nearly two second lead as Dewease worked to run him. Lapped traffic on the final lap was nearly problematic for Pittman as Dewease closed the gap but Pittman escaped and earned the win at Williams Grove.

"You knew the 69K came from a ways back and I wasn't sure what (crew chief Kale Kahne) was going to tell me to do under the red. I was kind of thinking 'man, I need to change my line.' And he said, 'just keeping running the top.' And I was like, 'man. are you sure?' That 69, I guarantee he's not running the top," Pittman said. "We got hung up in some lap traffic on the last lap and I felt like I made a pretty bad corner but luckily was able to hold onto it down the backstretch and was able to slide myself through three and four."

The win gives Pittman his seventh of the season, good enough for the second-mostand propelled him to third in the championship point standings over his teammate Brad Sweet. The win is also the second for the Outlaws, who, with Schatz's victory at Lincoln Speedway earlier in the season, now have a two-to-one lead over the Pennsylvania Posse.

Dewease, who finished in second and is the owner of the other series race win at Williams Grove this season, said the unusual track conditions were a challenge for he and his team all night.

"(This track) isn't my type of deal, this (car) likes it real slick. (The car) was really nice all night. Davey does a wonderful job. This is a new car - this is only like the third race on it. Davey and Donny, they work their butts off and I couldn't be happier to drive it as hard as I can for those guys."

Hodnett, who finished in third, said his No. 27 Heffner Racing /Trone Outdoors car was not quite where it needed to be tonight.

"We were really disappointed. We just weren't good to run the cushion all night and I don't know why," Hodnett said. "We were just balled up on it and loose off of it. We just weren't good enough to to run anywhere but on it and then not very good on it. The track was pretty different than what it had been all year so we've got a little work to do. Thankful to be on the front stretch with this group of competitors we have here."

The World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series continue their battle with the Pennsylvania Posse tonight as the two close out the Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals at Williams Grove Speedway. One driver will take home $25,000 and claim the coveted Morgan Cup Trophy for the Outlaws and Posse. For more information and to learn how to purchase tickets, visit WoOSprint.com/Summer-Nationals.

OWINGS TEAM DROPS IN 358 MOTOR, WINS TRAIL-WAY SPRINT CAR FEATURE; Miller & Marriott micro-sprint winners; Jason Chronister wins limited stocks after brother crashes; Crocker takes Classic Car feature

HANOVER, PA (7/22/2016) – Steve Owings, who has spent the entire season running a 410 sprint car, dropped a 358 cubic inch engine in the team sprint car and drove to the win in his first 2016 appearance at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

“I have to thank Steve Rucker for the motor and the crew for its hard work in switching this car around this week,” said Owings upon exiting his Westminster Transmission/Valentine Motorsports #35 in victory lane, “We got a lucky draw.  That was a long 25 laps.  I had the top wing the whole way back in the trunk, we were pushing, and I wasn’t quick enough on the restarts.”

“With my crew and Brad McClelland wrenching, any monkey could have driven this thing tonight,” continued Owings, “We love this place!”

An inversion draw put Owings on the pole for the start, and he led every lap.  He crossed .81 seconds ahead of fifth-starting David Holbrook, with Dwight Leppo, 11th-starting hard charger Jeff Halligan, and Zach Euculano completing the top five.  While Owings was driving away to nearly a half-lap lead by the mid-race point, five cars raced wheel-to-wheel for second through sixth.

Rounding out the top ten for the 18 “358” sprint cars were Seth Kearchner, JB Cunningham, Jr.,Isaac Sneeringer, Randy Whisler, and Dan Richcreek.

Sprint car qualifiers were won by Cody Fletcher and points leader Doug Hammaker, who were both involved a three-car crash in turns one and two of lap two of the feature.  Both cars were done for the night.

Hayden Miller dominated the 20-lap 600cc micro-sprint feature, starting on the outside pole and leading every lap.  Tom Frachetta, Bred Weber, Jim Young, and North Carolina’s Danny Jones completed the top five.

Heats for the 16 “600” micros were won by Jones and Young.

The Mason Dixon 270cc micro-sprint main went to Brian Marriott, who started on the pole and led every lap, crossing 1.78 seconds ahead of Bill Laughman, with Levi Peck, Mike Boer, and Chad Myers finishing third through fifth.

Heats for the 22 “270” micros were won by Peck and Richie Keller III.

 Jason Chronister was the winner in the 15-lap limited stock feature.  His victory came six laps after brother Matt broke and barrel-rolled in turns three and four while leading on lap nine.

Jason assumed third for the restart, passed Jeff Foster for second on lap ten, and then took the lead from Robbie Carroll on lap 13.  He drove away to a 1.4-second win, followed by Carroll, Foster, 15th-starting Cory Weishaar, and Mike Kolodiej, Jr. (who came back from the rear after a rough riding call on lap two.

Qualifiers for the 21 limited stocks were won by Kolodiej and Justin Wagaman.

Jim Crocker drove under Joe Brown exiting turn two of lap ten and went on to win the 20-lap feature for Classic Cars.  Brown settled for second, with Jim Rost, Neal Reamer, and Steve Clemo crossing third through fifth.

Heats for the 11 Classic Cars were won by Joe Brown and Charlie Summers.

 Next Friday, July 29th, the Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic Sprints return to Trail-Way along with the Limited Stocks, Street Stocks and the ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends. This will also be “Kids Race Car Rides” Night! Gates open at 5:30 p.m. with heats beginning at 7:45 p.m.

David Gravel Battles to Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup Victory Picks up his fifth World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series victory of the season

SARVER, Pa. - July 19, 2016 - Donny Schatz did not make it easy, but David Gravel proved up to the task as he battled to his fifth World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series victory of the season in the 25th Annual Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup at Lernerville Speedway on Tuesday night.

Gravel started from the front, but did not have an easy road as Schatz moved forward early and then began challenging the Watertown, Conn.-native for the lead. Through lapped traffic, Schatz closed the distance and then battled by Gravel. Gravel kept up the pressure though and, the next lap by, was in position when Schatz bobbled on the cushion. He took back the top spot and held off challenges through the end of the 40-lap feature.

"Donny is really good - Dale (Blaney) and Donny at this type of race track," Schatz said. "I tried to keep my pace up as good as I can but it got harder and harder and harder to run. When Donny showed his nose there and passed me, I got the wing back and tried a different line down the back stretch and was able to get underneath him and slide him back and slide a lapped car. That was the winning move there really."

The win comes less than a week after Gravel last stood in victory lane with his CJB Motorsports team - that time at the inaugural Jokers Wild at Eldora Speedway. It is Gravel's first ever win at Lernerville and moved him past Brad Sweet and into the second position in championship standings. He is now 226 points behind Schatz.

The No. 5 Big Game Treestands started out the night taking the quick time award - his fourth of the season.

Gravel shared the front row of the feature with Blaney, who stood in victory lane at the Silver Cup in 2015. Through the opening laps, Gravel pulled out to a strong lead over Blaney.

Schatz quickly battled to third and after an early caution pulled wheel-to-wheel with Blaney for second. Blaney however held the spot through the first 10 laps. Another caution brought the field together and after several laps, Schatz battled past Blaney for second.

As Gravel worked his way through traffic, Schatz began closing on the No. 5 car, from an over two second lead, Schatz brought it down to .603 seconds by lap 23. As rode the cushion around the top of the track, Schatz brought his No. 15 Bad Boy Off Road/Chevrolet Performance J&J close but could not find a way by.

Gravel again pulled away but Schatz again closed the gap. This time, Schatz got around Gravel after sliding him through turns one and two for the lead. The reigning series champion's hold on the top spot was tenuous though as the No. 5 car took advantage of a mistake and retook the top spot. Though Schatz stayed close, it was smooth sailing to the end.

"Donny was really good there at the end. I could hear him," Gravel said. "And the cushion pushed the edge of the track off of four and I was just happy to hang on."

Schatz, fresh off his $50,000 Kings Royal victory was disappointed by the second place run.

"I shoved over the edge, that's just the way it goes," Schatz said. "Winning the Kings Royal and then coming and running second kind of feels like I let my race team down. I did everything I could. I know they did too… That's just the way this sport is. Some days you're the bug, some days you're the windshield."

He extended his lead over second place in the championship standings to 226 points. Following the Silver Cup in 2015, Schatz had a larger 294-point lead over the then second-place team of Shane Stewart.

Blaney, who came into the night as the past winner of the event, sad he was disappointed with the finish for his No. 1B GoMuddy.com team.

"It felt like we had a really good car all night," Blaney said. "Man, I just couldn't get maneuverable in that race at all. I couldn't float the corner. Just really disappointed… we've run so good here. We've run really good when the track gets like this but we just missed it a little bit in the feature."

The World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series continues through the 'Month of Money' as it heads east this week to Pennsylvania Posse territory to take on Williams Grove Speedway for the Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals.

DANNY DIETRICH SCORES THRILLING SUNDAY NIGHT SUSQUEHANNA WIN John Barnett Notches First 305 Sprint Win

Danny Dietrich did something no one has been able to do this season. And that was pass Lance Dewease while he was leading a feature event.

            After leading the first 16 laps of Sunday nights, BAPS Coatings & Supplies 410 Sprint car feature at Susquehanna Speedway, Dietrich lost the top spot to Dewease-Central PA’s hottest driver and it would appear that Dewease would drive to yet another win aboard the Kreitz Racing sprint.

            But Dietrich had other ideas.

            He stayed close to Dewease as the pair worked lapped traffic and was able to pounce on the veteran driver in lapped traffic to take the lead on lap 29 and held onto to pick up his first win of the season in the BAPS series at Susquehanna aboard the Gary Kauffman Racing, Sandoes Fruit Market #48.

            Dietrich, who recently captured his first career Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek championship drew the number two starting spot after an impressive heat race effort, where he drove from 10th to second to put himself into the redraw.

            After polesitter, Kyle Reinhardt spun on the opening lap, that moved Dewease to the point alongside Dietrich and the fans were in for 30 laps of entertainment from that point on.

            Dietrich scored the win over Dewease with Brent Marks coming home third after driving all day after competing in the Kings Royal the night before. Lucas Wolfe finished fourth ahead of Brandon Rahmer as Brian Montieth came home sixth after starting 11th ahead of 14th starter Adam Wilt, Brock Zearfoss, Davey Sammons and Reinhardt. The top 10 cars were the only cars remaining on the lead lap.

            Reinhardt, Wolfe and Marks were BAPS 410 Sprint car heat winners for the 31 car field. The consolation was won by Kyle Moody.

            John Barnett led flag to flag to capture his first ever win in the PASS/IMCA 305 Sprint car 25-lap feature.

            Barnett started second and held the point through the duration of the feature, despite a lap 23 yellow flag that bunched the field and put multi-time winner Tyler Reeser on his bumper.

            But Barnett was able to keep Reeser at bay to score the win with Reeser, Dave Brown, Billy Ney and John Martin completing the top five finishers.

            Sixth through 10th were Ryan Stillwaggon, Ken Duke, Jay Krout, Kyle Ganoe and Zach Newling.

            Ney, Martin and Stillwaggon were heat race winners for the 31 305 Sprint cars while Kassidy Kreitz was the consolation winner.

            Susquehanna Speedway returns to action Saturday, July 23 on Sutliff Chevrolet Night as the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman return to the track joined by another Precise Racing Series event for the 358 Late Models, ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends and Road Warriors .Pits open at  4PM with grandstands opening at 5PM and Racing beginning at 7PM.

            The next BAPS Coatings & Supplies 410 Sprint Car Series event will take place on Sunday night, August 21st in the Justin Snyder Salute to The Troops 30-lap, $5,000 to win event.

Steve Poirier Late Race Pass of Jason Barney Wins Lucas Oil ESS Thriller at Albany-Saratoga ESS Career win #59 Ties him With Mike Woodring

MALTA, NY – Steve Poirier made two statements Friday night during the Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprint event at Albany-Saratoga.  First he made late race passes on both Chuck Hebing and then leader Jason Barney to win his sixth A-Main of the season. Second, it marked ESS career win #59 which ties him with Mike Woodring atop the all-time win list.

The 25 lap Mach 1 Chassis A-Main all came down to a restart on lap 17.  Barney was in the lead and chose the inside lane with Hebing alongside and Poirier starting in third.

“Jason started the last restart and it was perfect for me.” Poirier mentioned on the restart that changed the outcome of the event. “I was able to get a good start and get by Cobra (Hebing), and get to the outside in turns one and two.  That helped me get a good lane and try to make a pass on Jason.”
As the two came down for lap 22, Poirier dove under Barney going into three and slid up beside him. “I made that move to see if I car could stick in the middle.” Poirier continued. “The next lap I had such a good run I knew I could slide him going into three.  It’s always tricky to do cause you don’t want your car to get into their left front but I knew I had enough momentum.”

The move indeed did work to perfection with Poirier then opening up a small lead in the final two circuits to get the win over Barney and Hebing.

As mentioned earlier, the victory did set a new chapter in ESS history.  For the Quebec native, win #59 times him with Woodring, an ESS Hall of Famer.  Even though Poirier has been with ESS since 2006 and never raced against Woodring, he is a man of history.

“This means a lot.  I can remember when ESS came to Quebec I always watched Mike, he always started in the back but he always would win. I really didn’t follow sprint cars much but I definitely enjoyed watching him race.” Steve went on. “It also means a lot to win and get #59 the way I did, to win over Jason and Cobra who are the best here is something special.

The victory netted Poirier over $1,800 but also closed him to Barney who leads both the overall Lucas Oil Championship Standings and also the NAPA Auto Parts US Tour standings which was offered on this night.

Barney took home another second place finish, which is always a feat in itself, but he felt he left something on the table.  “Yea, I think I gave it away.  Don’t get me wrong, Steve earned it in every way.  But, I just don’t think I made the right moves on those last few laps.” He went on. “I felt like I had to try to go early on that last restart to get to where I wanted to be on the race track. But, as it turned out, it wasn’t the right choice.”

For Barney, who does have three wins to his credit so far this season, it was another top five and another finish that keeps him in the overall point lead.

“We have had an exceptional year, we still have some work to do to get the results Steve has but I think we are equal as teams, we just need to get better or more consistent.” Barney quipped. “We have three wins with three different car and motors, so that makes you realize we are doing the right thing.  We just need that little extra.”

Hebing took third and while he thought he was as fast as the front two, that lap 17 restart set his fate as well.  “Jason did what he needed to do, he went quick on that start to keep his lead but it doomed me.  I was caught sleeping and Steve got by me.” Hebing noted and kept it simple. “Hey, it’s just one of those deals and there always the next race.

Danny Varin came from his 13th pace start to come home in fourth with pole starting Paul Kinney hanging on for fifth which kept him in third in the overall point chase.

Rounding out the top ten were Shawn Donath, Jessica Zemken, Cory Sparks, Parker Evans, who didn’t show up until just before the heats rolled out with hauler issues and Matt Tanner.
