Starks Posts Podium Performance During First Race at Cottage Grove Since 2017

 

Inside Line Promotions - COTTAGE GROVE, Ore. (July 21, 2021) - Trey Starks highlighted a Western Sprint Tour doubleheader at Cottage Grove Speedway by earning a podium result last Friday.

Starks was solid during his first time at the track since April 2017, qualifying fourth quickest and placing fifth in a heat race to lock into the 12th starting position in the A Main.


"It was good to get back to Cottage Grove," he said. "We had a decent qualifying effort, but we didn't gain spots like we needed to in the heat race. That didn't give us the best points so we missed the dash.

"In the feature we worked our way up until the rubber came about halfway. We were fifth or sixth and then took what we could get in the rubber and ended up getting to third. It was a solid night. We just needed to start further up toward the front and I think we'd have had a good chance to win."

Starks returned to the quarter-mile track on Saturday. He timed in second quickest and maneuvered from sixth to fourth place in a heat race, which earned enough points to advance into the dash.

"We had a good qualifying effort and we picked off a couple of spots in the heat to get us in the dash," he said. "We drew the third starting spot and got to second on the white-flag lap. That put us starting outside front row for the feature.

"We got out to the lead on the start. About 10 laps in we cut a right rear tire. We came into the work area and changed the tire. We restarted 18 th or 19th and got back to fifth with six laps to go when we blew another right rear. That was it for us. We were really fast in the feature, but just had no luck."

Starks was credited with a 17th-place result.

Next up is a return to Skagit Speedway in Alger, Wash., this Friday and Saturday for the Bob's Burgers & Brew Summer Nationals.

QUICK RESULTS -

July 16 - Cottage Grove Speedway in Cottage Grove, Ore. - Qualifying: 4; Heat race: 5 (5); Feature: 3 (12).

July 17 - Cottage Grove Speedway in Cottage Grove, Ore. - Qualifying: 2; Heat race: 4 (6); Dash: 2 (3); Feature: 17 (2).

Daniel Retires From Full-Time Racing Because of Lasting Effects From Concussions

 

Inside Line Promotions - SPRINGVILLE, Calif. (July 21, 2021) - Mason Daniel is making an investment in his long-term health by deciding to end his racing career.

Daniel has been trying to recover from a concussion sustained during a crash on April 30, but the lingering effects combined with advice from specialists have led to the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series driver hanging up the helmet.


"After seven concussions and talking to multiple doctors, including a specialist at UCLA, it is in my best interest to stop racing," he said. "I am having lasting effects from the most recent concussion and we need to place my health as the top priority.

"It's really a tough decision to make. I have been goal-driven to get to the top of sprint car racing for the past five years. I know I did not come close to the competitiveness that I wanted and that hurts the most about hanging up the helmet. This is not an easy decision to make. I wish I could be climbing into the car one last time, but with the recommendations from doctors and the lasting effects from seven concussions, it is the right decision. I'd like to thank our gracious sponsors as well as every fan, crew member and driver who I have gotten to know and who has helped me over the years. Everyone was like family to me on the road and I appreciate them so much for everything."

Daniel climbed the racing ranks, rising from micro sprints to full-size sprint cars, and he won a pair of races in 2018 during his first full season behind the wheel of a winged sprint car. That earned the North American 360 Rookie of the Year Award from the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame. The 2019 season showcased a transition to more 410ci winged sprint car competition and last year marked his first year as a full-time World of Outlaws driver.

"I have enjoyed my time racing around the country and will always look back on these last few years with happiness," he said. "I have been able to live a dream to race with the World of Outlaws and while it was for a much shorter time than I hoped, I am still proud of accomplishing that goal."

DANNY DIETRICH & JEFF RINE WIN FEATURE RACES ON SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY’S HISTORIC 75th ANNIVERSARY!

 

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- On the anniversary date of Selinsgrove Speedway’s opening in 1946, a huge crowd and stellar field of 410 sprint car and super late model drivers made a showing Tuesday night for the Snyder County oval’s historic 75th Anniversary Race.

Gettysburg’s Danny Dietrich dominated the evening in the 410 sprint cars by winning his heat race and leading flag-to-flag in the 25-lap main event for the $5,075 victory. The win was the fifth of Dietrich’s career at the track at the wheel of the Kauffman Racing/Weikert’s Livestock No. 48.

Thirteen-time track champion Jeff Rine of Danville made the winning pass on lap 23 of the 25-lap super late model feature for his 113th career victory also worth $5,075 in the Jeff’s Auto Body No. 2J. It was Rine’s first win of the season at Selinsgrove, and he became the division’s fifth different winner in as many races.

Selinsgrove Speedway is back in action at 7:30 p.m. this Saturday, July 24, with the Jeff’s Auto Body Summer Championship/Armed Forces Appreciation Night featuring the 410 sprint cars, super late models, and roadrunners. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

Dietrich drew the pole position for the start of the sprint car feature and beat outside front row starter TJ Stutts into the first turn for the early lead. The caution flag unfurled on the first lap when Dylan Norris stopped on the backstretch.

When the race resumed Dietrich was pressured by Stutts as fourth-place starter Blane Heimbach advanced to third to join the battle at the front of the pack. On several occasions early in the race Stutts challenged Dietrich for the front spot to no avail.

On lap 11, Heimbach passed Stutts for second in turn one and set his sights on Dietrich. At the halfway point, Dietrich led Heimbach, Stutts, third-place starter Steve Buckwalter, and eighth-place starter Freddie Rahmer.

Late in the race, Rahmer showed some speed and powered into third on lap 21. For several laps Heimbach was closing in on Dietrich but ultimately fell 3.12 seconds short at the finish. Dietrich took the win over Heimbach, Rahmer, Stutts, and Buckwalter.

In the super late model feature, polesitter Jim Bernheisel edged out front row starter Gene Knaub for the lead entering turn one. With Bernheisel setting the pace, Knaub and third-place starter Dan Stone dueled for the runner up position.

The race’s first caution flag unfurled on lap six for Jason Schmidt’s disabled race car in turn four. When the green flag waved again, Stone got by Knaub for second. A lap later, a fierce battle unfolded for the third position between Knaub, fifth-place starter Jeff Rine, and seventh-place starter Dylan Yoder.

On the 10th circuit, misfortune struck Stone as his car rolled to a stop in turn two. At the halfway point, Rine was tormenting Knaub for the second spot while Bernheisel led the way. Rine took over the runner up position on lap 18 as eighth-place starter Rick Eckert entered the top five.

In the final laps, Rine reeled in Bernheisel and made the winning pass on lap 23 using the highline through turns three and four. Rine took the checkered flag by one second over Bernheisel, Knaub, Eckert, and D. Yoder.

SWEET TASTE OF SILVER: The Big Cat Banks $25,000 at Lernerville's Don Martin Memorial Sye Lynch, Son of Local Hero Ed Lynch Jr., Nearly Completes Perfect Night at Home Track

 

SARVER, PA - July 20, 2021 - Gold is always the goal, but once a season with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series, silver is sweeter.

That one occasion came on Tuesday night when the Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup XXX offered a $25,000 payday at Lernerville Speedway.

In the end, it was Brad Sweet piecing together a dominant 40-lap performance to take the check and walk away with his 14th win of the season. The Kasey Kahne Racing, NAPA Auto Parts #49 started third, took the lead on Lap 12, and crossed the stripe with a massive margin of victory at 5.381-seconds.

However, all night long, the story throughout the pits, in the nearly sold-out crowd, and on social media was Sye Lynch.

The 23-year-old Apollo, PA native entered the 40-lap Feature with a perfect night under his belt. He had set Slick Woody's QuickTime, won his Team Drydene Heat Race, and dominated the DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash to put the #42 on the pole position.

To the Lernerville locals, it was beginning to feel all too similar to the 2002 Silver Cup which sent Sarver into pandemonium. On that July night 19 years ago, it was Sye's father Ed Lynch Jr. defeating the Outlaws and earning his first career victory at their home track. On this night, it was about the next generation and Sye's golden opportunity.

He commanded the opening lap of the Feature, but the crowd really came to life when Lynch fought Sweet for the top spot. The two-time and defending World of Outlaws champion tossed four different sliders at him, but Sye continued to rally back with his crossovers becoming savvier by the lap as the roars only echoed louder.

Eventually, Sweet made his turn one slide job stick on the 12th circuit as Lynch was unable to find the drive off turn two to counter him. From there, The Big Cat never saw another challenge.

The Grass Valley, CA native lapped his way up to 11th-place as he cruised away to a dominating victory worth $25,000. The win is Sweet's third at Lernerville, but his first in the Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup. He joins his brother-in-law Kyle Larson as the only two Californians to win the Sarver, PA special event.

It's his 72nd career World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series triumph, tying him with "The Wild Child" Jac Haudenschild for 11th on the All-Time Wins List. He now is only 12 wins away from reaching the top-10.

"I about gave it away when I drove off the backstretch with five or so to go," Sweet quickly said as the rain came down. "I had a really good car, we just got too free at the end. This NAPA Auto Parts car is fast right now. Excited for the rest of summer."

Donny Schatz made a late charge to put the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing, Ford Performance, Carquest #15 in the runner-up position.

Aaron Reutzel ran second for most of the race but eventually slipped back to finish third aboard the Roth Motorsports #83. That's nine podium results for the Clute, TX native, who is in the midst of a heated battle for The Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year Award.

After starting on the outside pole, David Gravel brought the Big Game Motorsports #2 home with a fourth-place finish. Rounding out the top-five was Alice Springs, NT, AUS native James McFadden with a fifth-place bid for the Kasey Kahne Racing, Karavan Trailers #9.

Closing out the top-1o on Tuesday night was Logan Schuchart in the Shark Racing #1S, Carson Macedo in the Jason Johnson Racing #41, Tim Shaffer in the Bryan Grove #28, Christopher Bell in the Swindell SpeedLab #39, and Sheldon Haudenschild in the Stenhouse Jr. Marshall Racing #17.

Citing the wrong setup decision, Lynch's #42 faded in the late going and ultimately ended up 15th, but his remarkable run through the beginning of the night lost no luster.

UP NEXT: The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series will travel to Central Pennsylvania for another matchup vs. the PA Posse this weekend. Mechanicsburg's Williams Grove Speedway is the site of the battleground with Summer Nationals kicking off on Friday night and offering a $20,000/Win finale on Saturday.

Dominic Scelzi Victorious On and Off the Race Track Recently

 

Inside Line Promotions - WATSONVILLE, Calif. (July 20, 2021) - The last couple of weeks have been fruitful for Dominic Scelzi both at the track and away from it.

Scelzi welcomed his first child - a daughter - last weekend, which helped erase the sour taste from a frustrating outing during the 11th annual Howard Kaeding Classic at Ocean Speedway. on Saturday.


"I think at the end of the day it's more of the big picture," he said. "We're still not going to be happy with anything but a win, but it's one of those things you have the big picture. At the end of the day you get to go home to an amazing family and beautiful baby girl."

Scelzi qualified 13th quickest and finished third in a heat race, which lined him up on the inside of the eighth row for the King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series main event. He was then caught up in an early crash that resulted in his car getting upside down. However, his team repaired enough damage to send Scelzi back onto the track and he hustled from the rear of the field to salvage the night with an 11th -place result.

"We went out late in qualifying and didn't qualify very good," he said. "In the heat we were third by the flagstand. In the feature we were up to 10 th or 11th a few laps in. There was a big crash in turns one and two. We had nowhere to go and got into it. We blew the front end out of it and I sat on my side for 20 minutes and watched the oil drain out of it. My guys worked their butts off in the work area and we were able to get back out there. That was huge because every guy involved in the points battle was involved in a crash."

The rally helped Scelzi close to within one point of the leader in the championship standings.

Scelzi posted his 13th win of the season during a weekly 360ci winged sprint car show at Ocean Speedway on July 9. He charged from eighth to garner the victory, which was his first of the season at the track.

"We qualified fifth and were really, really good," he said. "We started third and ran third in the heat race, but were right with first and second. I felt extremely confident going into the feature. The race car was perfect and we got a little better as the race went on. The track slicked off and slowed down. I was the only guy who could make the bottom in turns one and two work. When we got into traffic and started sliding guys I started rolling the bottom and got Justin Sanders coming to the white flag. It was awesome that we were as fast as we were and could pass Justin, who is the guy to beat at Ocean."

The next night Scelzi timed in seventh quickest, won a heat race, placed second in the dash and finished fourth in the King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series A Main at Petaluma Speedway in Petaluma, Calif., during the Salute to Baylands Raceway Park.

"We qualified seventh and won a heat race to make the dash," he said. "We were leading the dash and had a caution with one lap to go. The NARC officials made a mistake and went double file instead of single file for the restart. It went lights out as half the field was waving off the start. I was stuck on the outside and not able to get lane choice. We lost the restart and ran second so we had to start second in the main event. The officials acknowledged the mistake after, but we were locked into the outside front row for the feature. We went green in the feature and went with the leader, but the officials decided I jumped the start. I had to restart fourth and kind of just ran there. We ended up gaining two positions and lost two positions to guys who could maneuver better."

Scelzi enters a pair of series shows this weekend - Friday at Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, Calif., for the Chris and Brian Faria Memorial and Saturday at Santa Maria Raceway in Santa Maria, Calif. - hungry to reclaim the points lead.

"We've won the last NARC races at both tracks," he said. "We're extremely confident. Tulare is one of my best tracks and we've been really good there. I feel we have a really good package there. We're running the 360 and the 410 that night. And I think we've run at Santa Maria three or four times over the years. You never know what to expect. I'm excited to get there for the first time with Jimmy (Carr)."

Big Game Motorsports and Gravel Earn Top 10s at Brad Doty Classic and Pair of Races at Eldora Speedway

 

Inside Line Promotions - ROSSBURG, Ohio (July 20, 2021) - David Gravel guided Big Game Motorsports to a trio of top-10 outings last week in Ohio, where the team ran five races in a six-day span.

Gravel finished 10th at the Ohio Logistics Brad Doty Classic hosted by Attica Raceway Park in Attica last Tuesday during an event that at that time drew the most drivers in a World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series event this season.


"The week started off okay," he said. "We almost got to the dash in the heat race and then just kind of missed it in the feature. It was our first night in the car and we just didn't quite have a handle on it."

The action then shifted to Eldora Speedway for four races, including a pair of $175,000-to-win Kings Royal events.

Gravel started on a strong note last Wednesday, qualifying fourth quickest in his group before placing second in a heat race. He then advanced from eighth to fifth place in the dash and from fifth to third in the A Main.

"We were good every time we hit the track," he said. "I felt like we had one of the best cars at the end."

Rain wreaked havoc the next couple of days, forcing both Kings Royal races to be run on Saturday. Gravel timed in 22nd quickest and won a heat race to garner the third starting position into the afternoon show.

"I was able to win the heat and put ourselves in position to win the first Kings Royal," he said. "We came up a little short finishing second. Being light at the scales was devastating. It still stings. We probably burned off at least 25 pounds of tread. We had 20 pounds bolted on the car. We did an extra 10 for that reason and it still wasn't enough."

Gravel ended up four pounds light at the scales and was disqualified, dropping him to 24th in the results.

The night program started off with Gravel qualifying 10th quickest out of the 58 drivers. He gained a position in a heat race to finish second, which lined him up on the outside of the fifth row for the second 40-lap, $175,000-to-win A Main of the day.

"In the other A Mains we hit it pretty good and this time we kind of missed it," he said. "We were pretty much just hanging on. The track was way different than it was during the day. We had the car too tight and I couldn't run down on the race track. I had to only run the outside and it's tough to do that when you're not in clean air. Everything is magnified when you're mid-pack."

Gravel was credited with a 16th-place result.

The weekend concluded on a positive note on Sunday when Gravel was eighth quickest in qualifying. A fourth-place result in a heat race was followed by a seventh-place showing in the main event.

"Pill draw was real important," he said. "I thought qualifying eighth for when we went out was a good effort. We just missed it in the heat race and we ran fourth. We pretty much maintained in the feature. The rubber came in and a couple of guys blew some tires and we ran seventh because we didn't blow a tire."

The big events continue for the team as the Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup is Tuesday at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa., and the Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals runs Friday and Saturday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa.

Sides Scores Best Kings Royal Run Since 2014 With 13th -Place Finish

 

Inside Line Promotions - ROSSBURG, Ohio (July 20, 2021) - The highlight of a hectic week in Ohio was a 13th-place result in a Kings Royal for Jason Sides.

It marked his 10th career Kings Royal A Main appearance and his best outing during the crown jewel event since 2014.


"It was a step forward," he said. "We had gotten up to ninth before a caution came out. I felt our car was better before the caution. It was almost like we were too good too early. On the restart a couple got by us and we struggled to get going again. We spun our tires and didn't get going as well. There was a gaggle of cars around us. I had been hoping for a caution to gather us up, but after that I wished we hadn't had a caution."

Sides opened the busy World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series week by almost overcoming a slow qualifying lap last Tuesday during the Ohio Logistics Brad Doty Classic at Attica Raceway Park in Attica. He charged from 12th to seventh in a heat race and from eighth to fifth place in the Last Chance Showdown, which was only one position out of transferring into the main event.

"We were late in qualifying and the top got so far around," he said. "I thought we'd try something and run the bottom and across the track. There wasn't much at all there. I slid and really it put ourselves in a position where we were starting in the back. To get back going and make the progress was good, but to be one spot out of making the feature, you hate that."

Sides parked his car early during the opening night at Eldora Speedway on Wednesday followed by two rainy nights, which sidelined Sides until Saturday when the half-mile track featured a pair of $175,000-to-win Kings Royal races.

Sides transferred from the C Main and advanced from 22nd to 16 th in the B Main during the afternoon show before a charge from sixth to third place in a heat race locked him into the evening's Kings Royal A Main. He maneuvered from 18th into the top 10 before settling for a 13th-place result.

"The track had some moisture in it and the top and the bottom were kind of equal," he said. "You could run in really hard on the bottom and it'd stick you coming off. We made some wholesale type changes on the car and it seemed to work. That caution probably cost us a top 10, but we were glad to make the show and move forward."

The weekend wrapped up on Sunday, but a lack of grip on the tricky track ended with Sides finishing 10th in the Last Chance Showdown.

Next up is a trip to Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa., on Tuesday for the Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup followed by a visit to Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., for the Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals on Friday and Saturday.

Henderson and Sandvig Double Down With Wins at Knoxville and Huset's

 

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (July 20, 2021) - Justin Henderson went a perfect 2-for-2 behind the wheel of the Mike Sandvig Racing No. 7 sprint car last weekend as he picked up wins at Knoxville Raceway and at Huset's Speedway on consecutive nights.

Henderson has won the last four events he's competed in behind the wheel of Sandvig's sprint car. He also earned the victory in his family owned No. 83 during the 360ci sprint car portion of the event on Saturday night at Knoxville Raceway.


"It was a great weekend for everybody involved and honestly I don't know if it would have been much better," he said. "I'm just trying to kind of soak everything in and enjoy what we're accomplishing right now. The crazy thing is I think we can even be better."

Henderson kicked of the weekend on Saturday at Knoxville Raceway, where he timed in second quickest among 26 drivers with a lap of 15.577 seconds. He then won a heat race from the outside third row and garnered the eighth starting spot in the A Main courtesy of a feature redraw.

He captured the 360 portion of the night from the fourth starting spot and headed into the 410 feature looking to sweep the evening for the third time in his career at Knoxville Raceway. Henderson jumped to the top of the track right away and by the completion of Lap 1 he was already in fifth. Two laps later he moved into the fourth position and he settled in over the next six laps.

A restart with nine laps completed grouped the field back together and Henderson capitalized by going from fourth to second. Two laps later he powered by the leader to grab the point by a narrow margin at the flag stand. He went unrivaled the rest of the way to score the victory.

The $4,000 win was the 13th of his career at 'The Sprint Car Capital of the World' and came with a half beef as a result of it being Van Wall Equipment/Marion County Fair Night. With his clean sweep of the night, he earned $7,000 total and he also skyrocketed to the top of the track's point standings. He currently holds a 54-point advantage over second.

"We were fast right out the box and we only missed quick time by a few hundredths of a second," he said. "I had a feeling from the get-go that we were going to win the 360 race and once that happened I knew it was our race to lose and something drastic was going to have to happen to not get the 410 win as well. Everything fell our way. It's just nice to finally win one without breaking something on the car for once."

Henderson and Sandvig headed to Huset's Speedway on Sunday and for the second consecutive night the team timed in second quickest out of 23 drivers with a lap of 11.160 seconds. Henderson won a heat race from fourth and he earned the sixth starting spot for the feature after the feature redraw.

He moved into the fourth position early in the A Main and he inherited the second position following a wreck on Lap 10 by two drivers in front of him. Henderson capitalized on the restart and dove to the bottom to power into the lead exiting turn two. Besides a caution on Lap 15 that bunched the field back up, he went untouched to capture his fourth checkered flag of the season at the track by a margin of 2.428 seconds. The win extended his points lead at Huset's Speeway to 25 points.

"I had a ton of confidence pulling into Huset's and it just seems like we have a program that is good no matter what the track gives us at that place," he said. "A few of the tougher cars got together in front of us and from there I felt like we were the car to beat. We just barely missed a perfect night by timing in second in time trials and lost out on a bonus there, but overall, it's hard to be upset when you're in Victory Lane at the end of the night."

Next up for Henderson and Sandvig will be another two-race weekend. They'll head to Knoxville Raceway on Saturday for 3M Race Night and Huset's Speedway on Sunday for Nordstrom's Automotive Night.

"We're running extremely well right now and we are as good of a program as we've ever been in all areas," he said. "Unfortunately, when you are running so well sometimes you can put unrealistic expectations on yourself as a result. Up to this point the mindset has been to just hit our marks and do our best and the results will come. It's up to me to not change that and just keep driving the way I can. If I can do that, I expect to keep finding my way up front at the end of the night."

QUICK RESULTS -

July 17 - Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa - Qualifying: 2; Heat race: 1 (6); Feature: 1 (8).

July 18 - Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D. - Qualifying: 2; Heat race: 1 (4); Feature: 1 (6).

SEASON STATS -

30 races, 6 wins, 12 top fives, 16 top 10s, 22 top 15s, 27 top 20s

Progressive AFT Powers to Port Royal Half-Mile Homecoming

 

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (July 20, 2021) – The 2021 Progressive American Flat Track season will resume this weekend in something of an unofficial homecoming round for the paddock with the Port Royal Half-Mile presented by Appalachian Harley-Davidson at Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pennsylvania, this upcoming Saturday, July 24.

Despite the event making its first-ever appearance on the series’ calendar, its importance was cemented with its announcement due to its location. Pennsylvania is almost inarguably the single greatest producer of elite flat track talent with an outsized percentage of the field claiming home ties of one sort of another to the state.

As such, any home-state advantage in the evolving championship chases are largely negated this weekend, particularly in the premier Mission SuperTwins presented by S&S Cycle class where the leading trio are all either native or resident Pennsylvanians. And as such, double defending Grand National Champion Briar Bauman (No. 1 Indian Motorcycle/Progressive Insurance FTR750), second-ranked Brandon Robinson (No. 44 Mission Roof Systems Indian FTR750), and multi-time GNC Jared Mees (No. 9 Indian Motorcycle/Progressive Insurance FTR750) will pick up their battle for supremacy with a bit of extra motivation pushing them forward.

Bauman landed the most recent blow with his well-timed Lima triumph, but even so, Robinson remains on fire and Mees comes in with an extra week to heal following last weekend’s weather-related cancellation.

Looking a bit deeper, the continued progress of Jarod Vanderkooi (No. 20 Mission Roof Systems Indian FTR750) will be of interest as he continues to rack up podium finishes and threatens to turn this into a four-way title fight.

Also worth monitoring will be the relative performances of JD Beach (No. 95 Estenson Racing Yamaha MT-07 DT), Kolby Carlile (No. 36 Estenson Racing Yamaha MT-07 DT), and James Rispoli (No. 43 Latus Motors Racing Harley-Davidson XG750R Rev X) as the Port Royal Half-Mile marks the first event utilizing the rule changes newly implemented with aims of leveling the playing field between race-only and production-based engines.



AFT Production Twins presented by Vance & Hines

It’s a similar story in AFT Production Twins presented by Vance & Hines where six of the top eight-ranked riders -- including the top two -- will be angling to impress in front of their home-state fans.

Title leader Cory Texter (No. 65 G&G Racing/Yamaha Racing Yamaha MT-07) has opened up a healthy 39-point advantage that only stacks ever higher with each successive standout performance.

Fellow Pennsylvanians Dalton Gauthier (No. 79 D&D Cycles/Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson XG750R), Dan Bromley (No. 62 Memphis Shades/Vinson Construction Yamaha MT-07), Ryan Varnes (No. 68 RVR/Rausch Fuel Kawasaki Ninja 650), Cameron Smith (No. 44 Fredericktown Yamaha/Richie Reynolds Racing MT-07), and Johnny Lewis (No. 10 Moto Anatomy X Powered by Royal Enfield Twins FT) will all need to be at their best in hopes of pushing Texter as far down the order as possible in hopes of eroding his championship padding.

While that’s obviously easier said than done, it’s worth remembering that Lewis and Varnes did manage to finish ahead of Texter last time out.



AFT Singles

The AFT Singles class is less of an intra-state affair with the top-ranked Pennsylvanian being Shayna Texter-Bauman (No. 52 Red Bull KTM Factory Racing 450 SX-FFE), who currently sits sixth in the points.

Texter-Bauman is more than capable of contributing to a home-state victory sweep, however, considering she’s the winningest rider in class history and opened her ‘21 campaign with a double victory on Volusia Speedway’s similarly clay Half-Mile.

The chances for such a sweep improve up considerably if you allow for the inclusion of Australian Max Whale (No. 18 Red Bull KTM Factory Racing 450 SX-FFE), who makes Pennsylvania his home base during the race season. The championship leader by virtue of the tie-breaker over reigning AFT Singles champion Dallas Daniels (No. 1 Estenson Racing Yamaha YZ450F), Whale has been in tremendous form as of late, notching up two wins and a runner-up over his last four attempts.

The only rider with an argument of being even hotter is Henry Wiles (No. 17 American Honda/Progressive Insurance CRF450R), who has done the same over his last three attempts.

And with Daniels desperate to strike back and the usual assortment of a dozen or so riders with at least an outside chance at stealing away a win, Port Royal should deliver another high-drama AFT Singles Main Event.

The Port Royal Half-Mile also marks the return of Royal Enfield’s extremely popular BUILD. TRAIN. RACE. program which serves to highlight and celebrate women and motorcycle culture. There will be a special BUILD. TRAIN. RACE. exhibition and Q&A during the Fan Walk, in which fans will be invited to watch as the riders are interviewed about their specific racebike builds and their experiences as developing flat track racers.

There will be plenty of additional entertainment off track as well, highlighted by live music courtesy of Chasing Neon, who will bring their high-energy blend of live party music that ranges from country to classic rock and everything in between.

Fans looking to upgrade their racing experience are encouraged to reserve an all-day paddock access pass, allowing for free movement in and out of the pit areas for a true behind-the-scenes view of the Progressive AFT action. Limited quantities available.

Tickets are available for purchase now at https://store.americanflattrack.com/ebooking/ticket/view/id/3371#selectTickets. General Admission Infield tickets with open lawn seating are $25 ($65 with the addition of the all-day paddock access upgrade).

The Port Royal Half-Mile presented by Appalachian Harley-Davidson will air on NBCSN on Sunday, August 15, at 10:00 p.m. ET/7:00 p.m. PT, featuring exclusive features and cutting-edge aerial drone and onboard footage.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR: "Month of Money" Pits Outlaws vs. Posse This Week $25,000/Win at Lernerville on Tuesday, $20,000/Win at Williams Grove on Fri-Sat

 

SARVER, PA - July 20, 2021 - The Greatest Show on Dirt is on the heels of a historic week in Ohio, but there's no slowing down.

This week, the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series heads to Pennsylvania for three nights, and two big paydays available as the "Month of Money" rolls on.

Tonight's mid-week stop at Lernerville Speedway brings us Silver Cup XXX, the 3oth edition of the Don Martin Memorial with a $25,000 check on the line. On Friday & Saturday, Mechanicsburg's Williams Grove Speedway renews the Outlaws vs. PA Posse rivalry with the $20,000/Win Summer Nationals.

LERNERVILLE TICKETS (Tues)
WILLIAMS GROVE TICKETS (Fri-Sat)

Here are some of the top storylines to follow this week:

THE BATTLE RESUMES: It's been two months since the 2021 edition of the World of Outlaws vs. the PA Posse kicked off back in May. Continuing on their 2020 dominance, which included a complete sweep of the Posse on their own porch, the Outlaws did it again by shutting out the Central PA stars in their first bout this year.

The more impressive part of the Outlaws' May sweep of the Posse was the fact that it came from three different drivers all winning their first Series race at their respective tracks. Brad Sweet conquered Lincoln Speedway for the first time, then Carson Macedo and Aaron Reutzel split Williams Grove wins.

A host of other worthy Outlaw superstars including David Gravel, Donny Schatz, Sheldon Haudenschild & Logan Schuchart all hope to put their names on the scorecard this weekend.

DEWEASE & DIETRICH: When it comes to the PA Posse's active drivers, Lance Dewease of Fayetteville and Danny Dietrich of Gettysburg have defeated the Outlaws more than anyone, and they're both on a hot streak lately.

When the Outlaws were last in town during May, Dewease was struggling to find that elusive 100th career Williams Grove win. He put it on the podium at both nights of the Morgan Cup and has since rattled off four victories including a $15,000 PA Speedweek triumph at the 1/2-mile. The 103-time Williams Grove winner has earned 14 of his 17 World of Outlaws victories at the track.

For Dietrich, he's fresh off a $20,000 runner-up run in his first-ever Kings Royal Feature on Saturday. A few weeks back, the 33-year-old dominated a weeklong battle for the PA Speedweek championship, which included two podium runs at Williams Grove. He's won two of his five-career World of Outlaws victories at the track.

LERNERVILLE LOCALS: Separated from the hotbed of Central Pennsylvania, Sarver's stout group of locals is its own story over in Western Pennsylvania outside of Pittsburgh. On Tuesday, thanks to a large contingent of fans, the highest finishing Lerenrville regular will receive a huge bonus of more than $1,600 on top of their race winnings.

Among the many contenders is current points leader Sye Lynch of Apollo, PA. The 23-year-old son of Ed Lynch Jr. will try to join his father, who conquered the Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup in 2002, as the only father-son champions of the event. Other notables in contention include A.J. Flick, Brandon Matus, Michael Bauer, Carl Bowser, and Jack Sodeman Jr., among others.

SCHATZ-SYLVANIA: Donny Schatz enters both events this week as the winningest driver at each of them. He's topped Lernerville's Silver Cup and Williams Grove's Summer Nations on seven occasions each.

The 10-time Series champion is ranked inside the top-three when it comes to World of Outlaws wins at both tracks. He's won nine races with 22 top-fives in 52 Lernerville starts and owns 21 wins and 66 top-fives in 124 Williams Grove appearances.

Although they've only won once this year, the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing, Ford Performance, Carquest #15 has been consistent with 23 top-fives in 46 races, which ranks third among all drivers. It's not consistency, but victory lane that he's chasing this week with $25,000 at Lernerville and $20,000 at Williams Grove available.

POINTS SHAKEUP: After five nights of action in Ohio, the championship outlook looks quite different for the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series. Saturday's double Kings Royals were exempt as show-up points only, but the other three nights allowed all the opportunity for change.

Two-time and defending champion Brad Sweet continues his stronghold over the top spot, but positions two through six all swapped behind him. Thanks to a third at Attica and two Eldora preliminary wins, Carson Macedo (-114) and the Jason Johnson Racing #41 surpassed David Gravel's (-140) Big Game Motorsports #2 for the runner-up spot with 35 events remaining this season.

Behind them, Donny Schatz (-248) jumped from sixth to fourth in the standings with more consistency coming from his Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing #15. Sheldon Haudenschild (-254) and Logan Schuchart (-266) both dropped a spot to fifth and sixth due to some unlucky runs.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY: A Motorsports Tradition for Generations

Selinsgrove Speedway’s grand motorsports tradition began July 20, 1946, when Bill Holland of Philadelphia won the first race. Since that historic day, Holland went on to win the 1949 Indy 500, and many of motorsports’ most famous drivers have turned laps at the iconic half-mile dirt track designed by legendary Hollywood stuntman and race car driver Joie Chitwood. The speedway, celebrating its momentous 75th anniversary in 2021, will continue its legacy of rip-roaring open wheel and stock car racing this season and for future generations!

Wlliams Grove World Of Outlaws Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals Are July 23 & 24 Friday and Saturday events offer 10K and 20K to win

 

Mechanicsburg – The Champion Racing Oil World of Outlaws Sprint Cars Summer Nationals will take place this week at Williams Grove Speedway, slated for Friday and Saturday, July 23 and 24 at 7:30 pm.

The July Williams Grove outlaws invasion will be the second of three match-ups between the travelers and the local stars during the 2021 season.

Both nights of this year’s Summer Nationals shows will include full programs of time trials, heats and feature events.

The July 23 outlaws-posse match will feature a 25-lap main paying $10,000 to win while the July 24 Saturday finale Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals feature will offer $20,000 to the winner.

Adult general admission for July 23 is set at $30 with Saturday’s race priced at $35. Youth ages 13 – 20 are priced at $15 each night. Kids ages 12 and under are always admitted for FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.

It would seem that Californian Brad Sweet is the leader of the outlaws tour as it comes back to Williams Grove on Friday however he has yet to ever notch a win at the historic venue in his career.

Sweet leads the current outlaws points with 13 wins over Carson Macedo and David Gravel, both of whom have been outscored two to one by Sweet.

But while Sweet may struggle at Williams Grove, Gravel does quite the opposite.

In fact, Gravel is one of the defending winners of the Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals having taken the $20,000 finale last July.

In total, Gravel owns eight career victories at the track.

Carson Macedo owns a pair of Williams Grove wins on his career, both coming within the last 16 months and recently picked up the annual Brad Doty Classic at Attica, Ohio.

Aaron Reutzel, currently seventh in the outlaws points, also must be considered a contender as he moves into the Summer Nationals.

Reutzel, an infrequent visitor to the oval, has quickly picked up four wins within the last two years including back in May during the most recent outlaws stand when he and Macedo split weekend action.

The Williams Grove point leader, Lance Dewease will be the torch carrier for the PA Posse against the outlaws this weekend.

Up until July 16, Dewease was the only driver to repeat at Williams Grove this season and he is fresh off of a pair of podium finishes against the outlaws in May.

Freddie Rahmer, who became the second driver of the year to repeat at Williams Grove on Friday night, could be a factor as well.

Regulars Danny Dietrich and Anthony Macri also should prove to be in the mix this weekend along with local independent driver Brent Marks

2021 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Championship Standings: Fourth | 6122 points [248 points behind championship leader, Brad Sweet]

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (July 19, 2021) – It was a long week in the Buckeye State for Fargo, North Dakota’s Donny Schatz, as the ten-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion participated in five major programs across six days, two of which – on behalf of Mother Nature’s inability to cooperate – contested on the same day. In all, Schatz, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Carquest Auto Parts/Curb Records/Ford Performance/Sage Fruit/Digital Ally/Advance Auto Parts/Rush Truck Centers/Absolute Automation and Security/Hunt Brothers Pizza/J&J Auto Racing/No. 15 sprint car, left Ohio with a trio of top-ten finishes; a perfect momentum kick for a long stretch of big money races in July and August. 

Schatz kicked-off his Ohio stretch with a top-five outcome in the annual Brad Doty Classic at Attica Raceway Park on Tuesday, July 13th. Forced to do things the hard way, Schatz’ eventual top-five performance was the product of row 11, eventually climbing 18 spots to finish fourth after starting 22nd on the feature grid, simultaneously solidifying the evening’s Hard Charger Award. A sixth-place finish during heat race competition forced Schatz to participate in the evening’s Last Chance Showdown. Schatz would ultimately transfer, resulting in his eleventh-row A-Main starting position. 

As mentioned, Mother Nature put a twist in Eldora Speedway’s double Kings Royals schedule forcing Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing to compete in a pair of $175,000-to-win main events in a single day. Originally slated to be contested on Thursday, July 15, and Saturday, July 17, the 38th Annual Kings Royal and the 37th Annual Kings Royal were contested on Saturday afternoon and Saturday evening, respectively. Despite his attempt on Saturday evening resulting in an 18th-place score, Schatz’ performance during Saturday afternoon’s 38th Annual Kings Royal ended seventh in the running order, earning his way into the big dance by way of heat race victory.

The $10,000-to-win Jokers Wild, the 38th Annual Kings Royal preliminary program, was contested on Wednesday, July 14, as originally scheduled, but the $12,000-to-win Knight Before The Kings Royal, the 37th Annual Kings Royal preliminary program, was moved to Sunday, also due to Mother Nature. Schatz would go on to finish 13th and fifth, respectively, highlighting the preliminary events with a three-spot jump on Sunday.

The “Month of Money” for the Greatest Show On Dirt will continue on Tuesday evening, July 20, with the Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pennsylvania. The midweek program will award a $25,000 top prize; Schatz is the defending Silver Cup champion, as well as the owner of seven Silver Cup titles since accomplishing his first in 2006.

Williams Grove Speedway’s annual Summer Nationals will take over headlines on Friday and Saturday, July 23-24. The champion will receive a $20,000 payday.

Kerry Madsen guides Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing No. 14 to a top-five in Eldora’s Jokers Wild

 

Dates: Wednesday through Saturday, July 14th-17th
Event: 37th and 38th Annual Kings Royal
Series: World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series
Track: Eldora Speedway (Rossburg, Ohio)
Kerry Madsen A-Main Finishes (Start):
Wednesday Evening | Jokers Wild: 4th (4th)
Saturday Afternoon | 38th Annual Kings Royal: 22nd (12th)
Saturday Evening | 37th Annual Kings Royal: DNF | Scratch

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (July 19, 2021) – Despite suffering from some bad luck in each of the $175,000-to-win Kings Royal programs at Eldora Speedway, both of which contested on the same day – Saturday, July 17 – due to Mother Nature’s wrath on Thursday and Friday, the “Madman” Kerry Madsen showed a lot of promise in the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Rush Truck Centers/Advance Auto Parts/Curb Records/Ford Performance/Digital Ally/Sage Fruit/FloRacing/Absolute Automation and Security/Hunt Brothers Pizza/Mobil 1/Carquest Auto Parts/J&J Auto Racing/No. 14 sprint car and kicked-off his Elorda visit with a top-five score on Wednesday, July 14.

Madsen, who has been substituting for three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion and NASCAR Hall of Famer, Tony Stewart, for the last several weeks, earned his top-five during Eldora Speedway’s Jokers Wild, starting fourth on the grid before finishing in the exact same position. The Knoxville, Iowa, local via New South Wales, Australia, earned his way into the Jokers Wild A-Main via heat race victory, launching the program with the fastest time during his respective group qualifying time trials. 

Unfortunately, Madsen’s momentum on Wednesday did not transfer into Saturday’s Kings Royal doubleheader, forced to end both programs on the hook; scored 22nd during the 38th Annual Kings Royal on Saturday afternoon after contact with another competitor, followed by another case of incidental contact during Saturday evening’s 37th Annual Kings Royal heat race. Regardless, there was a silver lining in Madsen’s string of bad luck, as the recent World of Outlaws winner aboard the TSR No. 14 timed sixth-quick overall for Saturday afternoon’s program, finishing second during his respective heat to make the big dance.

An upcoming schedule for Kerry Madsen and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing has yet to be determined. Fans are encouraged to keep alert online, as well as on social media, for continuing updates regarding Madsen’s Tony Stewart Racing schedule.

Dietrich second and tenth in Kings Royal doubleheader; Williams Grove Summer Nationals highlights upcoming agenda

 

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (July 19, 2021) – Danny Dietrich’s last minute decision to join the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series for the annual Brad Doty Classic at Attica Raceway Park, and the double Kings Royal program at Eldora Speedway, certainly paid off, ultimately translating four main event starts into a pair of top-ten finishes, each of which taking shape during Kings Royal main event action. Needless to say, it was a career weekend for the Gettysburg, Pennsylvania-native, ready to use his momentum boost for the annual Williams Grove Speedway Summer Nationals on Friday and Saturday, July 23-24.

After a 13th-place score during Attica’s Brad Doty Classic on July 13, earning his way into the $10,000-to-win dance via third-place finish during his respective heat race, Dietrich, driver of the Gary Kauffman Racing, Weikert’s Livestock, Sandoe’s Fruit Market, Pace Performance, Big Cove Whitetail Trophy Hunts, Bowhunters Superstore, Drop Of Ink Tattoo, Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC, Self Made, No. 48 sprint car, kicked-off Eldora Speedway competition with the $10,000-to-win Jokers Wild on Wednesday, July 14. Unfortunately, Dietrich would miss main event action, forced to surrender after failing to transfer through the evening’s C-Main.

Despite his poor start at The Big E, Dietrich persevered and represented his Pennsylvania Posse fanbase proudly, eventually earning A-Main starting positions in each of the $175,000-to-win Kings Royal main events on Saturday afternoon and evening (each contested on Saturday due to Mother Nature interference). “Double-D” went on to finish second in the 38th Annual Kings Royal on Saturday afternoon, followed by a tenth-place score during the 37th Annual Kings Royal on Saturday evening. Dietrich earned his way into each of the 40-lappers via heat race transfer positions, finishing second and third, respectively. 

Technically, Dietrich finished third in the first $175,000-to-win Kings Royal, but David Gravel, who finished second, was light at the scales giving Dietrich the position. 

“What a weekend. I just can’t thank everyone enough for the opportunity to be there. It wasn’t even on our schedule, but a change of heart led us there and it paid off,” Dietrich said, who owns two victories thus far in 2021, as well as a Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek championship. “I can’t thank everyone enough..Gary Kauffman, my crew, my dad and brother, all of our partners. We’re pretty fortunate to be in this position and we’re proud to give our fans back home something to be excited about. We get to battle the Outlaws on our home turf next, so we’ll aim to get one spot better this weekend.”

Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing will continue their 2021 campaign with Williams Grove Speedway’s annual Summer Nationals on Friday and Saturday, July 23-24. The two-day World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series blockbuster will feature two, complete shows headlined with a $20,000-to-win main event on Saturday.

If plans fall into place, Dietrich will activate the week with a visit to Selinsgrove Speedway on Tuesday, July 20.
