Stewart Slides to Victory at Lawrenceburg Speedway Holds off challenges from David Gravel and Rico Abreu in Memorial Day thriller

LAWRENCEBURG, Ind. - May 30, 2016 - After dominating on Friday night at The Dirt Track at Charlotte and coming up one spot short of the win, Shane Stewart managed to overcome the heartache to score his third World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series victory of the 2016 season on Monday night in a Memorial Day thriller at Lawrenceburg (Ind.) Speedway.

Stewart, whose most recent win came at Devil's Bowl Speedway over a month ago, had to hold off challenges from NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver, Rico Abreu, and David Gravel to capture the checkered flag.

"I try to drive hard every night, and sometimes it probably doesn't look like it," Stewart said. "I'm just happy I can win on Memorial Day - I know it's a special weekend for some and probably not so special for others, but I just got to thank all the men and women that served our country and have given us the opportunity to come out here and do what we love."

With just a handful of laps remaining, Gravel in the Big Game Treestands/JRC No. 5, muscled his way around Abreu for the second position and challenged Stewart for the win, but came up just short of the victory as he captured his second podium finish since winning at Tri-State Speedway on May 14.

"We have a lot of podium finishes this year, it seems every time we start on the front row, we win," Gravel said. "Hopefully we can get a win when we don't start on the front row, but I think we found something tonight and I am really happy how we ended the feature there."

Abreu, who joined NASCAR stars Kyle Larson, Kasey Kahne and Christopher Bell in the feature at Lawrenceburg, finished third, which is his best World of Outlaws finish of the season.

"I was just really searching [at the end of the race]," Abreu said. "You can't really run the same line as these guys - it's really hard because of all the turbulence these wings make. You just have to search and that's the benefit of running second, because you can see what the guy in front of you is doing."

To start the night, Joey Saldana claimed his series-leading seventh quick time award when he bested Gravel and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver, and Larson Marks Racing co-owner, Kyle Larson, with a lap of 12.185 seconds.

When the heat races started, the first three were dominated by the driver that started on the pole as the track continued to rubber up. The final heat race provided a better preview of the racing to come later in the night as Stewart, in the American Born Moonshine/Eneos Oil No. 2, rocketed around pole-sitter Daryn Pittman to score the win.

Finishing second in the fourth heat proved to be a lucky break for Pittman, as an invert draw of eight placed the Kasey Kahne Racing with Mike Curb driver on the pole for the six-lap dash. Again, Pittman could not capitalize on the front-row starting position, as he finished second to Abreu, who utilized the famous dirt track slide job to score the victory and the pole for the 35-lap feature.

Abreu started on the pole for the feature race, with Pittman starting to his outside, but when the green flag dropped, it was Pittman who jumped out front. Even with two early cautions, Pittman was able to control the top spot for the beginning of the race.

Pittman led the opening four laps, but fell victim to changing track conditions, as he was passed by Stewart, who had made his way to the top spot from the third starting position.

Déjà vu began to set in for the native of Bixby, Okla., as he dominated the mid-stages of the race before he hit lapped traffic, which allowed second place Abreu, in the Abreu Vineyards/Alpine Stars No. 24, to close the gap.

Stewart could not hold off Abreu who took the lead on lap 25. Unlike a few nights earlier at The Dirt Track at Charlotte, Stewart did not fade down the stretch, instead he stayed glued to Abreu's rear bumper and took the lead back on lap 27.Over the course of five laps, Stewart and Abreu swapped the lead back-and-forth four times before Stewart captured the lead for the final time on lap 29.

"My car was pretty good but my right rear tire was shot, and I knew that," Stewart said. "I felt pretty good in one and two, but I was a lot in three and four, and just when I thought I had a little bit of breathing room, here came Rico again, throwing me a slider.

"That's the thing, you can't relax, and I did when we got to lapped traffic. Sometimes you're a sitting duck when you're the leader and you don't know how far to pace yourself and you kind of have to judge off of lapped cars. It got to a point where I wasn't getting around them and I started taking a little rubber off the cushion one and two, and that honestly saved me."

Stewart did not have the luxury of coasting to his third World of Outlaws victory of the season, as a hard-charging Gravel made his way around Abreu for second and quickly closed in on the leader.

In the end, Stewart was able to hold off a last lap charge by Gravel to secure the checkered flag in a Memorial Day thriller at Lawrenceburg Speedway.

"These young kids are so good, and as you can tell they just have tons of talent," Stewart said. "It doesn't matter what they jump into, they're going to be competitive.

"I knew Kyle [Larson] and Christopher [Bell] were coming to run with us - they do a heck of a job and they made me earn that one for sure."

Gravel returns to the podium following a two-race skid in which the Watertown, Conn. driver failed to finish inside the top five.

"Rico and Shane were putting on a hell of a battle and I was just kind of watching those guys," Gravel said. "I found something down low - it was taking a little bit of rubber - and if we had another lap or two I think I could've gotten him. We were all over him there at the checkered, but just a little too late.

Abreu led laps early and was the highest finishing NASCAR star, as Larson (fifth), Bell (seventh) and Kahne (14th) each started the feature but did not finish as well as the St. Helena, Calif. driver.

"Thanks to all the fans, you know its Memorial Day and a Monday night and there's a lot of dedicated fans here," Abreu added. "I'm happy to be able to race in front of all you guys, and once again, thank you all for coming out."

Seven-time World of Outlaws champion Donny Schatz continues to cut into points leader Brad Sweet's lead, as he finished sixth while Sweet finished eighth. Sweet now sits just 37 points ahead of Schatz.

Smith Doesn't Need Luck in Sunday Nights Port Royal Victory

 Mark Smith and the Mach 1 Chassis ‪#‎M1‬ completed the weekend URC sweep with his victory at Port Royal Speedway on Sunday Night May 29th. Fresh off his Kramer Cup victory less that 24 hours ago, Mark Smith drove away from the field enroute to his 2nd URC win of the year.

Smith who started in the 9th position in heat race #1 due to a poor pill draw. Smith wasted no time and putting the M1 to a qualified position and eventually finishing in the 3rd position.

With the 8 invert pill draw, Smith started in the 9th position for the main event. Smith wasted no time in the feature, and he put the M1 into position P1 by the 4th lap of the main event. A lap 11 caution due to a flat left rear tired on 410 feature's winner Greg Hodnett sending the Heffner owned #27 pit side. Hodnett would not return and on the lap 11 restart it was again Smith, followed by Josh Weller, Eric Tomecek, Matt Campbell and the 47 of Rookie Adam Carberry.

At the drop of the green, Smith again pulled out to a comfortable lead. A lap 20 caution again bunched up the field and putting the 1W of Eric Tomeck right on Smith's tail tank. The restarts did both Smith again as he used a lap 20 double file restarted to take a commanding lead and cruising on his way to the $3,000 winners prize.

With 38 cars on hand, the United Racing Club featured 4 heat races won by Robbie Stillwaggon, Eric Tomecek, Davie Franek and Greg Hodentt who was doing double duty. There were several double duty drivers on hand for the night racing action. Also running a 410 and a 360 were Greg Hodnett, Steve Buckwalter, Aaron Ott, TJ Stutts, Mark Smith, and the 5w of Lucas Wolfe. The 18 car B-Main was won by Aaron Ott running the high side and around the 5 of Justin Barger.

The United Racing Club will now prepare for another 2 race weekend kicking off Friday Night at the Williams Grove Speedway and then onto to the ultra fast 1/2 mile of Selinsgrove Speedway on Saturday night. Aaron Ott blew up his 360 just as he was getting pushed off and URC regular Mark Sasso used his provisional to partake in the nightly

 A-Main event.

Hodnett Makes Late Race Restart Pass To Win Port Royal Weikert Series Second Round Mark Smith takes $3,000 URC victory


PORT ROYAL, Pa. ? Greg Hodnett used a late race restart to make a two-car pass and sweep into the lead and win worth $10,000 in Sunday night?s second round of the 2016 Port Royal Speedway Bob Weikert Memorial Sprint Car Series.

The victory was the second for Hodnett at the speedplant in 24 hours after he took round on worth $5,000 on Saturday night to start the three-day show that ends on Memorial Day evening.

In the 25-lap URC sprint main, Sunbury?s Mark Smith powered to the victory worth $3,000.

Lucas Wolfe led the first lap of the 35-lap 410-sprint car main from the pole but couldn?t hold off second starter Steve Buckwalter who took command on the second tour as David Gravel, Lance Dewease and Hodnett raced in the top five.

Hodnett never advanced until the 12th lap when he worked by Dewease for fourth.  He then overtook Gravel for third three laps later.

And just as Hodnett took over third, Wolfe pulled off an inside third turn pass in traffic to take over the helm of the event from Buckwalter.

Dewease saw a burst of speed develop at the halfway point of the 35-lapper as he again got in front of Hodnett, this time for third but Hodnett returned the favor with 15 laps to go to again claim the spot.

Hodnett was doing his best to stay ahead of Dewease as the latter worked the inside with Hodnett on top.

Meanwhile, leader Wolfe was working hectic traffic that allowed the top four cars to gather within striking distance of one another as the pace became dizzying and the leaders darted inside and out to clear the backmarkers.

Dewease appeared to be surging late in the event when he suddenly came up lame, dropping off of the pace and stopping on the backstretch, setting up a restart after the lone event caution period on lap 27.

Not within reach of the lead before the yellow, the restart played into Hodnett?s hands as he ducked under Buckwalter for second as the field blasted into the first corner.

Hodnett then raced with Buckwalter through turn two before pulling ahead on the backstretch only to close up on Wolfe for the lead.

The Memphis native then darted underneath Wolfe as the pair set their cars into the third turn to drive up out of the fourth corner with a command he wouldn?t relinquish after making a two-car pass during the lap to seal the deal.

Hodnett?s margin of victory was 1.420 seconds ahead of a surging Danny Dietrich who had started 12th.

Dietrich was up to fifth on the restart and drove by Gravel, Buckwalter and Wolfe during the closing circuits to finish a promising second.

Third went to Wolfe with Gravel taking fourth and 20th starter Brent Marks blasting home in fifth.

Marks earned the Hard Charger Award and a guaranteed starting spot in Monday?s finale.

Sixth through 10th went to Dale Blaney, Ryan Smith, Buckwalter, Doug Esh and Stevie Smith.

Heats for the 34-car field went to Hodnett, Gravel, Dewease and Dylan Cisney with Ryan Smith taking the consolation race.

Greg Hodnett leads the Weikert Memorial series points going into the final race on Monday with 350 points over Gravel, Wolfe, Dietrich and Esh.

Smith set fast time in qualifications with a lap of 16.639 seconds.

Josh Weller drove from fourth into the lead on the first lap of the URC sprint feature with ninth starter Mark Smith already up to second on the third lap.

Smith wasted little time getting the lead, overtaking Weller on the fifth tour for the point.

Doing double duty on the night as was several drivers, Greg Hodnett was up to third as the field worked through traffic when he blew a left rear tire on the 11th loop, slowing the pace.

Smith had Eric Tomecek in pursuit for the restart but the rest of the field was no match for Smith?s racer as he took the victory going away, winning by 4.740 seconds over Tomecek.

Matt Campbell was third followed by Adam Carberry and 17th starter Steve Buckwalter.

Sixth through 10th went to Davie Franek, Curt Michael, TJ Stutts, Robbie Stillwaggon and Lucas Wolfe.

Heats for the 39 URC sprints went to Stillwaggon, Hodnett, Tomecek and Franek with Aaron Ott scoring the consolation.

Tomecek's Misfortune Hands Smith Kramer Cup Victory Knaub & Rine Victorious In Late Model Main Events

SELINSGROVE, Pa. --  Selinsgrove Speedway presented the Third Annual Selinsgrove Ford/ United Racing Club Kramer Cup Saturday, May 28, to honor the memory of sprint car racing legend Kramer Williamson of Palmyra, who succumbed to injuries he sustained in a sprint car racing accident at the Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown in 2013. The  tribute race marked the second event of the season at Selinsgrove sanctioned by the United Racing Club 360 sprint cars.

There is an old saying that sometimes it is better to be lucky than good. Saturday night's Newville Family of Companies/United Racing Club 360 Sprint Car Kramer Cup feature played out in a way similar to that saying. It was the misfortune of race-long leader Eric Tomecek,  who hit the third turn wall with two to go, that handed the lead to  Mark Smith. Smith had just finished a multi-lap side by side battle with TJ Stutts for the runner up spot when Tomecek wrecked.

Smith got a good start over Stutts on lap 28 and left Jason Shultz and Stutts in battle for second on his way to his second Kramer Cup win and his 17th career Selinsgrove Speedway win. Smith has won eight URC events at the track since 2012.  Saturday night’s $2,573 victory was Smith’s second of the season at Selinsgrove driving the Mach 1 Chassis No. 1 entry.

Smith, Stutts, Shultz, Josh Weller, and Curt Michael were the top five finishers. URC point leader Davie Franek finished in sixth with Troy Betts seventh. Robbie Stillwaggon, Ed Aikin, and Adam Carberry rounded out the top ten finishers.

Josh Weller, Robbie Stillwagon, TJ Stutts, and Mark Smith won heat races for the 34 360 Sprint Car field with the B-Main being won by Nate Snyder. Selinsgrove Ford sponsored $73 to win all heat races in memory of Williamson.  Jordan Thomas was the IBEW Local Electrical Union 1319 Hard Charger by advancing nine positions in the A-main.

Gene Knaub looked like a lock to win the feature that was being made up from April 30th for the Jeff's Auto Body & Recycling Late Models to kick off the night’s racing. Knaub began to have mechanical failure with three laps to go. A two-second lead vanished and Steve Campbell and Coleby Frye were on the leader's tail when the field saw two to go. Knaub withstood the late-race challenges to hang on and win his second career Selinsgrove feature and become the second different winner in the class this season.

Campbell settled for second and held off Frye who finished third. Jeff Rine finished in fourth with Chad Hollenbeck following in fifth. Tony Adams, Jim Yoder, Dave Zona, Matt Cochran, and Austin Berry rounded out the top ten finishers.

Jeff Rine started from the front row of the second Late Model feature of the night looking for his 98th career Selinsgrove Speedway feature  win. By lap nine Rine was in lapped traffic while Steve Campbell worked his way to the front. Rine looked to have the field covered when a late race restart gave Campbell a shot at the leader. Campbell was unable to make the move around Rine on the restart and Rine drifted out of Campbell’s reach to the win.

Campbell was able to hold off polesitter Chris Casner for second. The second place finish was Campbell’s third runner-up finish in the three Late Model races this year at the track. Casner had to settle for third. Tony Adams and Bryan Bernheisel finished out the top five finishers. Jim Yoder came across the line in sixth followed by Chad Hollenback, Shawn Jones, Coleby Frye, and Hayes Mattern. Bryan Bernheisel, Chad Hollenbeck, and Shawn Jones won the heat races with Gene Knaub winning the consolation.

AJ Hoffman led the early stages of the A&A Auto Stores Pro Stock main event while Curtis Lawton hounded him for the race lead. Brandon Moser soon joined the duel at the front for the lead. As Lawton and Moser ran side-by-side Hoffman began to pull away. Opening night winner  Andrew Shoop soon joined the race for second. On lap 7, just before halfway, Shoop slid into second. Shoop closed a little bit on Hoffman, but could not reel in the race leader before the 15-lap feature ended.

Hoffman secured his first win at the track since 2012 saying he didn’t know if he would ever get back to victory lane. Shoop was second just ahead of Moser, Lawton, and Nate Stroup. John Troxell was sixth followed by Jim Payne, Dan Condo, Tommy Slanker, and Bill Conrad. Hoffman and Moser were heat race winners.

TONY JACKSON SCORES BIG WIN IN BUD BRICKER NATIONALS Alex Bright Takes ARDC Win while Jason Townsend Earns Street Stock Win

By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway
YORK HAVEN, PA 5/28/16

In what was billed as by far the best race of the season, Newville’s Tony Jackson scored his first career Susquehanna Speedway win in Saturday night’s Bud Bricker Nationals.

Jackson took the win in the 30-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature after taking the lead on lap 19 and then holding on following a last lap restart.

New one lap track record holder and dash winner Scott Dellinger started on the pole and led the first three laps before giving way to fellow front row starter Scott Geesey.

Geesey held the point until lap 18 when third-starting Jackson drove his Clair Finkenbinder owned, McCoy Brothers General Contractors, Alvin Beam Painting, Liberator Performance #17J into the lead with 19 laps complete.

Jackson was headed to victory when a final lap caution for a stopped Timmie Barrick set up a one lap shootout. He then had to fend off eighth starting Kevin Nouse before earning the $2,000 payday. Jackson became the fifth different winner in six events this season.

Dellinger settled for the third spot ahead of Geesey and Chad Criswell with Mike Enders, Kenny Edkin, Rich Eichelberger, Doug Dodson and Paul Miller completing the top 10 finishers.

Dellinger set a new one lap track record in time trials with a lap of 17.086 seconds. He also won the Dash.

Heats for the 30 Super Sportsman were won by Dellinger, Geesey and Russ Mitten, who was running third on the final lap of the feature before suffering a flat tire. The consolation went to Gregg Foster.

Alex Bright earned the Hard Charger Award, coming from his ninth starting spot to win the 20-lap ARDC Midget feature. It was Bright’s first win of the year at Susquehanna.

Bright inherited the lead on lap nine after race leader Ryan Greth blew up while leading the event.

Bright took the win over Jim Radney, Brent Arndt, 11th starting Danny Stratton and Justin Grosz.

Trevor Kobylarz and Greth were heat winners for the 17 ARDC Midgets.

Jason Townsend came from his sixth starting spot to take the lead on lap four of the 20-lap Street Stock feature and never looked back in becoming the first repeat winner in the division this season.

Townsend held on through four cautions to score the win over Jim Palm, Hard Charger Randy Zech man (up from 12th), Bob Scott, Jr. and Chris Derr.

Thirty-seven street stocks signed in for action with heat race wins going to Sean Todd, Chad Stine, Jimmy Combs and Chris Heller. The consolation was won by Eric Tripp.

The night’s events were run in honor of Bud Bricker, the man who built Susquehanna Speedway back in 1954.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action on June 4th  on Tyson Fence Night as the Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman joined by the Xtreme Stocks, Road Warriors and PENMAR Cars. It will also be the Auto Racing Club of Hagerstown (ARCH) Night  at the speedway. .Pits open at  4PM with grandstands opening at 5PM and racing beginning at 7PM.

Jason Barney Blasts from 12th to Win Big Lucas Oil ESS Payday at Thunder Mountain

CENTER LISLE, NY – Jason Barney hasn’t had the best of luck when comes to the redraw with the Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints (ESS).  The Brewerton, N.Y., driver has been stuck with the number 12 on numerous occasions already in 2016 and he was againon Saturday night at Thunder Mountain Speedway.

Barney wasn’t deterred as he worked the bottom of the speedway throughout the 25-lap main-event to eventually take the lead and then the win in the Lightening on the Mountain feature for a $3,750 win.  It was his first of the season with club.  The race was part of the overall series championship as well as the NAPA Auto Parts Tour of the US.

“That is three weeks in a row that I drew number 12,” commented Barney after the win.  “You know me, normally I get down on myself but tonight I just didn’t care.  I told the guys just do the right things and whatever happens, happens.  We’ve had great race cars all year and we should had a couple more wins but the driver cost of a couple good finishes.  What a great race team and a great race car.  We got a special thing.”

Jonathan Preston jumped to the lead after redrawing the pole position.  He beat Chis Jones into the first turn and jumped to the high-side of the speedway to secure the lead.  He stayed on the top lane while Jones challenged him through the middle lane of the speedway.

Preston encountered traffic on lap seven and before he had to navigate his way through the caution came out as Thomas Radivoy spun in turn four after hitting an implement tire.  On the restart the red was displayed as Shawn Donath got over after doing a wheel stand.  He wasn’t injured in the incident.

Preston took full advantage of the single-file restart racing away from the field again.  At this point Preston held the lead over Jones and Dave Axton while Barney had just made his way into the top five.  Preston pulled away from Jones with Barney working the very bottom of the track to advance.  Before the race reached halfway he was into the top three.

Chad Miller was the final caution of the race as he got over onto his side on lap 12.  After he was removed racing picked up again.  Preston led the way as Barney dispatched of Jones for second on lap 13.  He then focused his attention on the leader Preston.

Barney, driving an X-1 Race Car, tracked him down and pulled even on lap 15 for the top spot before diving low in turn one and sliding up off the exit of turn two to secure the lead for the first time in the race.  At that point Barney opened up with advantage with Preston battling with Howland for the second spot.

“We’ve come here two or three times and nobody could really make the bottom work,” stated Barney.  “I’ve tried it and tried it and I couldn’t make it happen.  We decided that since we were starting 12th we were going to throw something at it and we just got lucky.”

Traffic came into play for Barney for the first time as the race reached the final five circuits.  Barney’s pace was slowed which allowed Howland to inch closer to his back bumper.  With only two laps to go Howland was in striking distance as Barney was forced to squeeze his way between Matt Tanner and Keith Granholm as they battle for position.  He went wide into the third turn keeping Howland behind.

“I’m really good buddies with Matt Tanner and Keith (Granholm) is a good friend and customer of mine,” he said.  “I knew someone was chomping at the bit behind me because I had to be going 10 mph slower.  I wanted to be nice to them but if there was an opening I was going to go through it.  I didn’t get impatient I just waited for the opening and put it where it needed to be.”

From there Barney went on to win his 12th career Empire Super Sprint A-Main while Union Springs, N.Y., driver Bryan Howland finished second to collect $2,225.  Howland adjusted his line once Barney went by and that allowed him to snag the second spot away from Preston.

“He showed me a good line to get through three and four to come in a little higher and come off on the bottom,” Howland said of Barney.  “That actually is what got me into second.  He’s a good teacher when he goes by you.  It’s a late night but we all had fun.  The car was pretty good, a little off during the middle of the race, but it came back to life near the end of the race where I was at least watching Jason and not watching him leave me.”

Preston improved upon his fifth place finish last time out with the Empire Super Sprints as he finished third after leading the just over half of the race.  The Romulus, N.Y., driver has made only a handful of starts in 360 Sprint Car competition after making the jump from the 305 ranks.

“This feels pretty good,” commented Preston.  “This is only my sixth time in the car.  We were pretty successful with the 305 and we are hoping we can do that here too.  We’ve been fortunate so far to start up front so that helped tonight.”

A pair of Canadians completed the top five as Chris Jones crossed the line in fourth with Steve Poirier moved from seventh to fifth.

Car Mate Custom Built Trailers Heat wins on the night went to Howland, Axton and Barney.  Parker Evans won the Cobra Coaches/Trackside Products Dash while Chuck Hebing picked up the Lacaillade Masonry B-Main victory.

Inherits lead with three laps remaining to clinch $5,000 prize

ORRVILLE, Ohio (May 28, 2016) - For the first time in his career, Rico Abreu entered action at Wayne County Speedway, joining the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions for the second leg of their Memorial Day weekend swing through northern Ohio. The California native made his trip to Orrville, Ohio, worthwhile, scoring $5,000 and a third career Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions victory in front of a near standing-room only crowd. The “Low Rider” Dale Blaney crossed under the final checkers second, followed by Andrew Palker for his second top-five finish of the season.

“Just happy to be up here in front of this great crowd,” said Rich Abreu in victory lane. “I just want to thank everyone for coming out tonight. A big thanks to Tony Stewart for allowing all of this to happen. We have busy weekend and week still ahead of us. This is a great start and we’ll try to keep this going.”

Rico Abreu, who started second on the main event grid, made his first bid for the top spot just before the halfway point of the 30-lap feature program, eventually working around pole sitter and leader Andrew Palker in traffic on lap 14. Sheldon Haudenschild and Dale Blaney also worked around Palker, creating a three-car battle for the lead.

By lap 20, traffic started to intensify, allowing Sheldon Haudenschild to apply heavy pressure on Abreu. Using the top line of the speedway, Haudenschild worked around Abreu on lap 25, setting a new pace at the front of the field. Fortunately for Abreu, Haudenschild’s wicked pace around Wayne County’s rim would only last until lap 28, when the Wooster, Ohio, native made contact with a lapped car, bringing out the main event’s first and only red flag. Haudenschild would get upside-down, but walked away unharmed. He would not return to the speedway.

Rico Abreu inherited the point position and led the final three circuits to clinch his first ever Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions victory at Wayne County Speedway. Dale Blaney finished second after starting third, followed by former Wayne County Speedway track champion Andrew Palker. Cole Duncan and Jac Haudenschild rounded out the top-five. The “Wild Child” started 19th, climbing 14 positions to secure his top-five finish, as well as the MSD Hard Charger Award.

“Someone told me at the beginning of the night that Sheldon (Haudenschild) was going to be the guy to beat in traffic here,” explained Abreu. “He definitely proved that. I was trying to race on all parts of the race track; just trying to find where I was comfortable. The second I knew I let the top open up, Sheldon would be right there. I think things would have got really interesting those last three laps if Sheldon wouldn’t have got crashed. Hats off to him and his guys. They’ve been fast all year.”

The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions will continue their 2016 campaign on Saturday evening, June 4, at the Atomic Speedway in Chillicothe, Ohio. It will be the third attempt by the traveling Arctic Cat All Stars to contest competition at the Atomic highbanks this season, with the first two scheduled dates postponed due to wet weather, including the intended point season opener. Defending Arctic Cat All Star champion Dale Blaney is the most recent winner during All Star action at Atomic Speedway, sweeping the Open Wheel Championship on July 31/August 1, 2015. The August 1 finale was worth $10,000.

The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions will make an appearance at the Bedford Fairgrounds Speedway in Bedford, Pennsylvania, on Sunday, June 5. It will be the second appearance of 2016, welcoming 42 cars during their first stop on Sunday, April 17. Chad Kemenah earned the $5,000 victory, holding off Greg Hodnett and Cap Henry at the final checkers.

About the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions:

All Star Enterprises, LLC, wholly owned by Tony Stewart, d/b/a the All Star Circuit of Champions, is a winged sprint car series. The All-Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Car Series is one of the oldest traveling 410 sprint car organizations and is a staple of grassroots, open-wheel racing. Formed in 1970 by Bud Miller, the series has largely been considered the first 'outlaw' Sprint Car organization of the modern era. After a 10 year stint as owner of the All Stars, Miller passed control of the series to Bert Emick in 1980; a reign that would continue through 2002. Guy Webb then purchased the series from Emick in the summer of 2002 and served as the series President for the next 12 years. Motorsports entrepreneur Tony Stewart agreed to terms with Guy Webb to become the sole owner of the original winged sprint car tour in January of 2015.

Hodnett Class Of Saturday Weikert Memorial Sprint Field, Round Two Is Sunday Dylan Yoder claims companion super late model main


PORT ROYAL, Pa. ? Greg Hodnett drove from the sixth starting spot to overtake Lucas Wolfe and win round one of the three-day Bob Weikert Memorial for sprint cars on Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway, taking a $5,000 victory in the Fallen Heroes Championship.

It was Hodnett?s third victory of the season at the track.

In the Fallen Heroe?s Championship for super late models, Dylan Yoder of Selinsgrove wired the field for a $2,000 victory, claiming the event a year after his father Jim won the race.

Only one caution flag slowed the 30-lap sprint car feature and that didn?t occur until lap 25.

However during the pace laps before the initial green, the red flag unfurled for Anthony Fiore who flipped in the first corner.

Wolfe rocketed into the lead from the pole when green flag action began, followed on the first lap by fourth starter Brock Zearfoss along with Danny Dietrich.

Hodnett began his advances early in the race, getting by Doug Esh for fourth on the third lap and then battling by Dietrich for third a lap later.

However Esh and Dietrich fought hard for the spots and both had again gotten back around Hodnett on lap five.

That only seemed to motivate Hodnett however as he would regroup to again march forward as the race continued with Wolfe having entered the backmarkers on the sixth tour.

Dietrich slipped backward on the eighth tour, giving way to invader David Gravel aboard the Clemens No. 5.

Meanwhile Hodnett was again up to fourth and he again got by Esh, this time for third on the 11th circuit.

Wolfe had built up a large lead at the front but Hodnett consistently cut into the advantages of the front duo to fly by Zearfoss for second with 16 laps to go.

Hodnett did his best work early in the night low off of the second turn but it was dives through the third turn that would net him second and the lead as he drove in and then across the track with 12 to go to get by Wolfe and take command.

Gravel started fifth in the event and steadily advanced to be running third as Hodnett took the lead.

He then got by Wolfe on the 19th tour and began a pursuit of the new leader.

Eighth starter Lance Dewease was the next driver to flex his muscle, beginning a march into contention around the halfway point to be sitting fifth with 10 laps to go.

Three laps later, just before the lone caution of the race, Dewease chugged into third behind Gravel.

The restart with five laps to go took place with a lapped car separating Hodnett and Gravel and another between Gravel and Dewease.

This prevented either challenger from getting a clear shot at Hodnett and that allowed Hodnett to get away and cruise unchallenged to the checkers.

Hodnett took the win by 1.023 seconds over Gravel with Dewease third followed by Wolfe and Esh.

Sixth through 10th went to Zearfoss, Dietrich, Ryan Smith, Aaron Ott and Pat Cannon.

Ott earned the $200 Hard Charger award for his drive from 23rd to ninth and also earned a guaranteed starting spot in Sunday nights second round of the three-race Weikert series.

Heats for the 34-car field went to Esh, Mike Wagner, Hodnett and Dietrich with the consolation race going to Joey Hershey.

Dylan Yoder used his pole position to take charge of the super late model main at the start however before a lap could be recorded Trent Brenneman spun at the front of the field, collecting several cars.

Yoder again took off when action resumed and entered the backmarkers on the fifth loop.

Another yellow flag bunched the field on the ninth circuit showing Yoder the leader over Mike Lupfer and Gary Stuhler.

Yoder wasn?t challenged on the restart nor was he challenged on a final restart with seven laps to go.

Lupfer ended up finishing second, 1.452 seconds behind at the end, followed by Stuhler, Scott Flickinger and Patrick Bryner.

Sixth through 10th went to Troy Swindell, Billy Wampler, Jeff Miller, Tim Wilson and Jason Schmidt.

Heats for the 27-car field went to Lupfer, Yoder and Andy Haus with the consolation going to Chad Myers.

C.J. Tracy scores first career win in “358” sprints; Montgomery claims Central PA Legends feature

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 5/28/2016 – “Hero or zero, Baby!”

So exclaimed Brian Montieth in summarizing his twelfth-to-first run in a thrilling $5,000-to-win Hilly Rife Memorial non-stop 30 lap feature event at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

It was a run that saw Montieth advance from fifth to first over the final five laps.

He passed both Billy Dietrich and Jim Siegel on lap 27 to move into third, caught Cory Haas for second on lap 29, and drove around Glenndon Forsythe on the final turn to claim his 52nd career Lincoln win.

In the end, the race took just 8 minutes, 18.723 seconds, and the top three crossed the finish line just .777 seconds apart.

“Absolutely not. I had no idea,” reacted Montieth when asked if he knew where he was in the running order over the final laps, “I was trying to look at the board and make sure no one went to the top on me. I thought Glenndon was definitely going to the top on turns one and two of the last lap. I was better than him in one and two, but everyone was just holding their own in three and four.

 “It just came alive toward the end,” continued Montieth, “At the beginning of the race, we struggled, and I thought we were just going to run around the rubber. That’s not me. Luckily, the top came in and I finally felt comfortable in the car. Here we stand.”

A disappointed Forsythe, who took the lead from Chad Trout on lap 19, crossed second, with Haas third.
Completing the top five were Billy Dietrich and Siegel. Sixth through tenth were Robbie Kendall, Alan Krimes, polesitter Chad Trout (who grabbed the lead on a second attempt to start the race and led the first 18 laps), Austin Hogue, and front row starter Frankie Herr.

Heats for the 28 410 sprinters were won by Montieth, Herr, and Haas, with Brandon Rahmer winning the consolation.

York’s C.J. Tracy claimed his first career win in the 20-lap 358 sprint car feature. Tracy started on the pole and was the class of the field. A last-lap spin by fifth-place Ryan Higgins set up the final lap restart, but it was to no avail, with Tracy crossing .75 seconds ahead of fellow front-row starter Mike Bittinger.

Chandler Leiby, Jeff Rohrbaugh, and Jeff Halligan completed the top five.

Heats for the 30 358 sprinters were won by Tyler Esh, Halligan, and Matt Campbell, with Chris Frank winning the consolation.

A wild, caution-filled 20-lap Central PA Legends feature saw York’s Lucas Montgomery score his fifth Lincoln career win. Despite several lead changes within laps, there were five official lead changes during the race. Between laps 13 and 16, there was a different leader each lap.

Bill Diehl led the first 12 laps, before things got interesting, with Harlon Leppo leading lap 13, Mason Chaney leading lap 14, Diehl back in front on lap 15, and Montgomery taking the lead for good on lap 16.

Second through fifth were Leppo, Diehl, Travis Perry, and Justice Forbes.

Heats for the 27 Central PA Legends were won by Chaney, Leppo, and Chad Earnst.

Next Saturday night, June 4th, at 7:30 PM, it will be APPLE CHRYSLER/DODGE/JEEP/RAM OF HANOVER NIGHT and York County Racing Club Night featuring the 410 Sprints, 358 Sprints, and 358 Late Models. Gates open at 5:30 PM.

Smith's Luck Leads Him to Kramer Cup Victory at Selinsgrove Speedway

Sometimes you have to just be lucky to win a race. Saturday night Mark Smith's luck helped him to victory lane at the Annual Kramer Cup race at Selinsgrove Speedway. Eric Tomecek had the field covered but an unlucky incident with the turn 4 wall with 2 laps to go handed Smith the coveted Kramer Cup Victory.

A field of 33 360 sprint cars were in the pits at the Annual Kramer Cup event held in honor of the late Kramer Williamson. With 4 heat races on tap, winners of the heat and $73 dollars went to Josh Weller, Robbie Stillwaggon, TJ Stutts and Mark Smith. The B-Main was won by Nate Synder and when heat #1 winner Josh Weller pulled the 8 pill, that put Tomecek and the B&G Auto Body #22 of Troy Betts on the front row. The invert also buried the top 3 in URC points, Davie Franek 14th starting position, Robbie Stillwaggon 7th starting position and Curt Michael 12th starting position.

From the drop of the green flag Tomecek was fast, hitting lapped traffic by lap 5 and building a 3.9 second advantage over 2nd place runner TJ Stutts. A lap 16 caution for the 21 of Ed Aikin erased Tomecek's lead and bunched up the field. A lap 17 restarted saw the 33w of Michael Walter II flipping down the front stretch. After a quick red flag fuel stop, the top 5 was Tomecek, TJ Stutts, Mark Smith, Troy Betts and Jason Schultz. Since no lap was scored a single file restart with Tomecek once again taking a commanding lead. The field raced just 2 laps before the most of the field had to take evasive action down the front stretch to avoid a slowed 39 of Eric Parker.

On the restart, Mark Smith jumped all over Tomecek and took the lead heading down the backstretch, unfortunately they yellow was thrown before a lap could be completed, putting Tomecek back to P1 and creating another single file restart. On the restart Tomecek again checked out on the field, unfortunately the next caution flag was thrown for the 1 of Tomecek who had stopped in turn 4 after hitting the wall and ending his night. Tomecek who had built a 2 second lead at the time of his wreck could only watch the remaining 2 laps from the pits.

On the restart Smith jumped out to the lead with the Victory Auto Glass, Schearer's VW and Audi Specialists #63 of Josh Weller had a great start rocketing himself from his 3rd place starting position to the now runners up spot. Unfortunately the flagman didn't like the start and it was called back with the field now starting single file again. Smith would go on to lead the final 2 laps taking home the coveted pink Kramer Cup along with a heafty $2,573 top prize money.

The teams of the United Racing Club will now only have a few hours to wash and maintenence the cars before heading to night #2 of the Memorial Day Weekend at Port Royal Speedway. Saturday nights race is sponsored by Quality Auto Body of Burlington NJ and an increased purse thanks to Greencastle Livestock Market, LLC.

Wolfe Wins Williams Grove Diamond Series 4K, Reeser Scores 305 Sprints


Mechanicsburg – Mechanicsburg’s Lucas Wolfe wired the field from the pole to take the $4,000 victory in Friday night’s Diamond Series event for sprint cars at Williams Grove Speedway.

The victory was the 14th of Wolfe’s career at the historic speedway, coming by 1.183 seconds over Brian Montieth.

In the 305-sprint main, Orwigsburg’s Tyler Reeser drove to victory, holding off Colby Dice for the win.

Wolfe was flanked by Ryan Smith on the front row for the start of the 25-lap sprint car main but third starter Brian Montieth motored into second on the start and would give chase of the leader the entire distance.

Wolfe entered the backmarkers on the sixth tour with Montieth in pursuit but it took until lap 11 for Montieth to even get close enough to even begin to think about making a move for control.

The leader worked traffic with relative ease aboard the Zemco No. 1 sprinter and was able to hold Montieth at a safe distance for the majority of the event.

The only caution flag of the event unfurled with five laps to go, wiping out a 1.082 second advantage that Wolfe had over the field at the time.

And the restart would prove to be Montieth’s only opportunity to grab the win as the Phoenixville flyer drove to Wolfe’s inside deep in the first corner with a bid only to fall short as the pair exited the second turn.

From there Wolfe cruised to the checkers, his first of the season at Williams Grove.

Smith ran third the entire distance to finish with the spot followed by fifth starter Greg Hodnett and Stevie Smith.

Sixth through 10th went to Pat Cannon, Doug Esh, Danny Dietrich, Austin Hogue and Brock Zearfoss.

Heats went to Esh, Dietrich and Cannon.  Stevie Smith set quick time in qualifications with a lap of 16.363 seconds.

Donnie Hendershot led the first lap of the 305 sprint main before Tyler Reeser took over after a close race back to the line.

Reeser had just seen Colby Dice drive into second when the red flag appeared on the fourth lap for a second turn flip by Zach Newlin.

Dice challenged Reeser briefly when action resumed but Reeser was up to the challenge, opening up a near straightaway advantage at points to pick up the win.

Dice rode home second followed by Jaremi Hanson, Ken Duke and John Martin.

Sixth through 10th went to Stephanie Dodson, Kyle Ganoe, John Barnett, Cale Reigle and Scott Lutz.

John Barnett was the Wee Bee Audio and Video Hard Charger in the event, finishing eighth after starting 22nd in the feature.

Heats went to Reeser, Hendershot and Hanson.

The entire racing program was delayed in starting over an hour thanks to poorly timed light showers that persisted during the early evening.

Dale Blaney Charges from Seventh to Win at Attica Raceway Park

Dale Blaney Charges from Seventh to Win at Attica Raceway Park,

Makes winning pass with five laps remaining to clinch 130th career All Star win

ATTICA, Ohio (May 27, 2016) - For the second time in 2016, Hartford, Ohio’s Dale Blaney earned his place in Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions victory lane at Attica Raceway Park. The six-time and defending series champion had to earn top honors the hard way, charging forward from seventh on the main event line-up, all before making the winning bid during a lap 36 restart. For Blaney, the $5,000 victory equalled 130 with the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions during his illustrious career, raising the Attica Raceway Park tally to 18 out of the 130. Blaney, a now three-time winner during Arctic Cat All Star competition in 2016, led the last five laps of the 40-lap main event, holding off sixth row starter Byron Reed and former series champion Chad Kemenah.

“We were really good from about lap 20 until the end...this is the first time in a long time that I’ve actually been able to say that,” said Dale Blaney in Attica Raceway Park victory lane. “This is a brand new car that we brought out tonight. This thing was almost flawless right from the start. I just can’t thank all of my guys enough for their hard work. George, Skippy, the entire group; I wouldn’t be up here without them.”

Pole sitter Broc Martin jumped out to an early advantage during the main event, controlling the top spot for the first four circuits around the bottom groove of Attica’s surface. Chad Kemenah, who started fourth on the feature grid, made a bid for the top spot with just five laps recorded and succeeded, driving around the outside of Martin to officially lead lap five of 40.

Kemenah, pilot of the Hunter Racing/No. 10H, navigated the very topside of the speedway during his campaign at the front of the field, surviving two cautions and periods of intense traffic during the first 27 circuits. While Kemenah kept control at the front of the field, the action behind him would increase. Positions two and three were juggled frequently over the course of the main event, with eventual winner Dale Blaney, who started on the inside of row four, making his first appearance in a podium position by lap 26, even after making contact with James McFadden while racing for position.

The main event’s third caution allowed Blaney to make a move for the runner-up spot, eventually driving around Cap Henry during the lap 33 restart. Meanwhile, Chad Kemenah continued to show the way, separating himself from Blaney even after the restart. Blaney would get the break he needed with just five laps remaining. A fourth and final caution appeared during lap 36, setting up a five lap shootout between the “Low Rider” and Chad Kemenah.

Green flag conditions returned with Kemenah on point and Dale Blaney in tow. Blaney followed Kemenah through turns one and turn, setting up a great run down the backstretch, ultimately allowing a slider in turns three and four to seal his winning fate. Byron Reed climbed his way to second from 12th by the final checkers, followed by Chad Kemenah, Cap Henry, and Chris Andrews.

“The guys ahead of me were kinda showing me where I needed and wanted to be,” explained Dale Blaney. “On the restarts, I was able to use the outside line to my advantage. I wasn’t exactly sure what Chad (Kemenah) was going to do during that last restart. I got a great run down the backstretch and drove it underneath him and made it stick. Feels really good to be up here. We were good all night. Haven’t had a chance to say that in a while. We’ll try again tomorrow at Wayne County.”

Wilson Wins at The Dirt Track at Charlotte

Wilson Wins Wild Race at The Dirt Track at Charlotte

Captures Circle K/NOS Energy Drink Outlaw Showdown for second career series win

CONCORD, N.C. - May 27, 2016 - A caution with six-laps remaining helped propel 2016 Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year contender Greg Wilson to his second career World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series victory in the Circle K/NOS Energy Drink Outlaw Showdown at The Dirt Track at Charlotte on Friday night.

Wilson, who won his first World of Outlaws race at the 4-Crown Nationals at Eldora Speedway in 2015, led just one lap of the 30-lap feature, after he passed race leader Shane Stewart on the final lap to capture the checkered flag.

"I've never dreamt in my wildest dreams that I would ever get this opportunity," Wilson said. "I have been blessed to run with the World of Outlaws this year. To do this in Charlotte, in front of all these fans, this is badass and that's all there is to it!"

Stewart, who led a race-high 25 laps, settled for a runner-up finish after he easily controlled the top spot for much of the feature.

"Greg [Wilson] is new to the Outlaw deal and it's always cool to see someone get their first Outlaw win - I'm not sure if he's won an Outlaw race before or not," Stewart said. "We hated to lose a race like that, but hats off to Greg."

Earlier in the night, Stewart, in the No. 2 American Born Moonshine/Eneos Oil car, captured his first quick-time of the 2016 season when he clocked in at 13.913 seconds. In his heat race, Stewart finished second to Wilson, which created a preview for the feature later in the night.

Both drivers earned positions in the six-lap dash, but an unfortunate invert draw of six sent Wilson to the rear and placed Paul McMahan on the pole.

McMahan did not hold the top spot in the dash once the green flag dropped, as Daryn Pittman, who started in the fourth position, rocketed to the front of the field. Pittman, the most recent winner on the World of Outlaws tour at New Egypt Speedway on Tuesday night, claimed the dash victory which placed him on the pole position for the feature.

Even though Pittman started on the pole-position, he never led a lap as second-place starter Cole Duncan, in the Helms Construction/Motor City Auto Transport No. 22, took the lead when the green flag fell.

Duncan, a Lockbourne, Ohio -native, controlled the top spot for the opening four laps until Stewart, who started in the fourth position, utilized the outside line to build up enough momentum to capture the lead on lap five.

Stewart opened up a sizeable lead early in the race, and held off challenges on a mid-race caution on lap 12. Stewart appeared to be cruising to his third victory in 2016, but a caution with six laps left created late-race drama.

The Hercules Tire/Ohio Logistics No. W20 driven by Wilson restarted in the third position behind Duncan and Stewart. The top three remained glued nose-to-tail with little room separating the three drivers from the top spot.

Wilson, who found grip on the bottom of the track, powered around Duncan for second and set his sights on the leader with just a few laps remaining. When the white flag was displayed, Wilson had Stewart firmly in his crosshairs for a race-winning pass.

Exiting turn two, Wilson accelerated in front of Stewart and captured the lead with only two turns to go in the feature. Wilson held off Stewart and claimed his first checkered flag of his rookie campaign in 2016.

"It's a little surreal right at the moment...I'm just in shock," An emotional Wilson said. "I am racing with the best sprint car drivers in the world, night-in and night-out. We missed that show in New Egypt and looked like maybe we shouldn't even be out here, and then we turned it around tonight.

"That's dedicated work by our team and all of the people that are a part of this. I am truly grateful. Once again, if you're not a Wilson fan, thank you for spending your hard-earned money to be here tonight."

Even though Stewart was hoping for a win, a second-place finish was well deserved after a rough stretch of races through Indiana and Pennsylvania, in which the driver wrecked his primary car and only scored two top-tens in four races.

"It was good to have Justin [Marks] and Kyle [Larson] in the house, and to have a good finish for them," Stewart added. "There's a lot of Eneos Oil people back at the trailer too, so just a good solid finish for everybody at Larson Marks Racing. I love all these fans - it's always a joy to come here to Charlotte."

Completing an Ohioan domination of the podium, Duncan secured the third-place finish after leading laps early.

"We're just proud to be here, and thanks to all the fans for coming out," Duncan said. "We rolled across the scales with a flat tire - it was starting to go there at the end. It might've cost us one but I am happy for Greg, if anybody deserves to win one, it's him.

"We've been fast all year but just can't seem to find victory lane yet, but they got to be coming. We are pretty consistent and we keep putting the time and effort in. We'll go back to the drawing board, we don't have to change much but just try to figure out how to keep the tires on there."

Point's leader Brad Sweet finished in the 10th position, five positions behind Donny Schatz who is now just 41 markers behind Sweet for the top spot in the championship battle.

The World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series will march back into the Hoosier State for a Memorial Day showdown at Lawrenceburg (Ind.) Speedway on Monday, May 30. For more race information and ticket purchasing options, visit:
