Trey Starks Whips Speedweek Opener Field At Williams Grove Friday Nouse scores third 358 sprint win of season
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Mechanicsburg – Trey Starks wiped up the field in the opener of the 28th annual Pennsylvania Speedweek Series for sprint cars at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, scoring a $5,000 victory over Greg Hodnett.
In the 358 sprint main it was Kevin Nouse of Mechanicsburg scoring for the third time this season while extending his season point lead.
Starks earned the pole for the 25-lap speedweek main for the 410 sprints and entered the rear of the field on the ninth circuit with a lead of over 2.5 seconds.
Chad Trout trailed Starks from the start with Greg Hodnett racing in third.
However after Starks entered traffic, his pace began to falter around the lightning-fast oval surface and both Trout and Hodnett were able to close in.
Trout took a stab at the lead on the 12th tour but Starks was able to recover and maintain control however he benefited from a caution flag that unfurled with 11 laps to go.
The caution was for a slowing Danny Dietrich on the backstretch and it cleared the track for Starks who shot out to a massive advantage when action restarted, turning the fastest laps of the race in the 16-second bracket.
The Washington state leader was way out in front, by more than three seconds when the red flag stopped his pace with four laps to go for a flipping Adrian Shaffer in the fourth corner.
Again Starks jetted away on the restart however this time Hodnett got by Trout for second.
Hodnett failed to close on the leader before the finish however as Starks drove the Scott Gobrecht-owned No. 44 machine across the finish line by a 1.124 second margin.
The victory was the second of Starks’ career at the oval as he also took the 2017 speedweek Mitch Smith Memorial, which is coming up next Friday at the track.
Starks admitted in victory lane that some miscues in traffic as he set the pace was what allowed both Trout and Hodnett to catch him before the lap 14 caution flag.
Trout held on for third followed by a stout James McFadden and Brock Zearfoss.
Sixth went to Rico Abreu who had started 17th in the field.
Abreu earned the Hard Charger Award.
Brian Montieth rode home seventh followed by Freddie Rahmer, Cory Haas and Gerard McIntyre Jr.
Heats went to Lance Dewease, McFadden and Trout with Jared Esh taking the consolation race.
Dewease withdrew from the main event near the halfway point.
Fast time was set by Starks with a lap of 16.603 seconds.
Cody Keller led the first 11 laps of the 20 lap main for 358 sprints before he spun in front of the field in the second turn.
This handed the lead to Scott Fisher with Glenndon Forsythe in second and Kevin Nouse running in third.
Shortly after Fisher crossed the stripe to record lap 13 as the leader, his mount came up lame in the first corner and he exited across the top of the second turn.
Not expecting the sudden slowing of Fisher’s pace, both Forsythe and Nouse blasted onto his tail and nearly collided.
However Nouse got the better of the deal and was able to squeeze by for the lead as Forsythe had to briefly hit the binders before continuing on.
Once at the front, Nouse was never challenged for the win.
Forsythe, Rodney Westhafer, Jeff Halligan and Troy Wagaman Jr. rounded out the top five finishers.
Heats went to Forsythe, Keller and Fisher.

CODY FLETCHER CAPTURES 4TH CAREER 358 SPRINT CAR VICTORY AT TRAIL-WAY SPEEDWAY Weber, Cox & Gallagher Also Winners
With two laps to go, Fletcher was rapidly approaching lapped traffic. As Fletcher and several lapped cars were coming out of turn two on the final lap, Fletcher made contact with the back end of John Sharpe’s #511 sprint car, and proceeded to do a wheelie down the backstretch. Fletcher slowed significantly but due to a several second lead, he was able to carefully navigate the final turns to claim his second win of 2018.
“I don’t know what that was. I appreciate the guy trying to get out of the way. We just had to make it one more corner,” Fletcher explained.
Outside polesitter, Steven Kisamore, and third starter, Joe Trone Jr., maintained their top three spots the entire feature but never had enough to challenge Fletcher on the restarts.
“You start up front you gotta stay there.“ Fletcher continued, “Dad’s been working hard. He’s got the thing feeling good, so it’s easy to drive when it’s like that.”
Following Fletcher, Kisamore and Trone across the line were Mike Bittinger and David Holbrook. Seventh finisher, Dylan Norris, was the Big Mike’s Crabhouse Hard Charger, after advancing 5 spots in the feature race.
Heats for the 358 Sprint Cars were won by Holbrook and Norris.
Bradley Weber raced to his 13th career 600cc Micro Sprint win, Friday night at Trail-Way Speedway. Weber, who started on the outside pole, drove away to a commanding lead in the final laps of the 20-lap feature race.
Johnstown’s Jim Young, navigated his way around Hannah Riser for the second spot on a lap six restart but was unable to catch up to Weber. Another caution, this time on lap 11, again brought the field back together. Young desperately tried to stick with Weber’s #17 micro sprint on the restart, but ended up crossing the finish line in the runner-up spot by a margin of 3.162 seconds.
Completing the top five were Riser, Donahue Motorsports Hard Charger, Travis Keiser, and Zane Rudisill.
Heats for the 600 Micro Sprints were won by Riser and Young.
Steven Cox scored his second Mason Dixon 270cc Micro Sprint win of 2018, Friday night at Trail-Way Speedway.
Cox started on the pole and led the entire 20-lap feature to earn his 13th career 270 Micro Sprint win. Cory Myers, Levi Peck, Brent Bull and Tim McClelland completed the top five. Donahue Motorsports Hard Charger, Zachary Cool, advanced 13 spots in the feature race and finished 8th.
Heats for the 26 270 Micro Sprints were won by Bull, Mike Boer, and Myers.
Sam Gallagher was in the right place at the right time, Friday night at Trail-Way Speedway. Gallagher was running second for 14 laps until racelong leader, Brian Walls, broke coming out of turn two, and immediately retreated to the infield. Gallagher assumed the lead on lap 15 and held off the charges of Gettysburg’s Will Walls during the closing laps of the 20-lap feature race.
“Whoever was there, I could hear him,” Gallagher laughed in victory lane. “He raced me clean. Never touched me!”
Following Gallagher and Will Walls across the line were Aaron Beard, Danny Beard and Shane McQuay.
Heat winners for the Street Stocks were Danny Beard and Brian Walls.
Trail-Way Speedway is back in action tomorrow night, Saturday, June 30, 2018, with the “Kings of Crash” Junk Car Demolition & Races! The Limited Stocks, Figure 8, Powder Puff and Aggressive Driving class will also be in action! Gates open at 4:00 p.m. with heat races scheduled to begin at 7:00 p.m.

Schatz won the Sears Craftsman Dash, earning the pole for the 25-lap Feature alongside Australian and Knoxville regular Lynton Jeffrey. Schatz took command at the drop of the Green, but Jeffrey stayed right with the nine-time Series Champion until the first caution of the evening flew for Jordyn Brazier with three laps complete.
Six-time Knoxville winner in 2018 Brian Brown also headed to the work area with damage after heavy contact with the outside retaining wall. On the ensuing double-file restart, Schatz and Jeffrey made contact on the frontstretch with the latter going for a wild series of flips. Jeffrey emerged unscathed after the wild accident and brought the crowd to their feet with his endless positivity in his post-crash interview.
Schatz continued to lead on the restart with Brooke Tatnell assuming the runner-up position. With momentum on the bottom, Schuchart took second from Tatnell on Lap 10.
Brothers Ian and Kerry Madsen waged war for multiple laps behind them for the fourth position before younger brother Ian solidified himself in the position. Ian wasn’t done there as he reeled in both Tatnell and Schuchart to take second with five laps remaining. But there was no catching Donny Schatz tonight, as he was never truly challenged after the Lap 3 restart going on to win by 3.809 seconds for the 12th time in 2018.
The first thing Schatz did in Victory Lane was get on the wing and throw up the 41 in honor of Jason Johnson. “It’s been a very shocking week. I’m glad to be standing here tonight, words can’t describe it,” an emotional Schatz said before thanking his entire Textron Off Road team.
“My guys are incredible, I am blessed to be able to drive this thing. It’s great to win at Knoxville,” Schatz said next to his Tony Stewart Racing No.15. Two-time Knoxville Raceway Champion and the leading contender for Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year Ian Madsen matched his season-best effort with his second-place finish.
“I had a great race car. I took a little while to get going, but [Kyle] Ripper and the guys gave me a fun car to drive tonight. It’s awesome to come back to Knoxville and have a solid showing and put the car up front,” Madsen said.
David Gravel charged from 11th to complete the all World of Outlaws podium and was pleased with his end to the evening. “We missed it a little bit in Qualifying, but after that, we were really good. We had a good car in the Heat Race and I think if we started closer to the front tonight, we could have contended,” the driver of the CJB Motorsports No.5 said.
Kerry Madsen and Logan Schuchart completed the top five with Shane Stewart, whose team was wearing Jason Johnson’s crew uniforms, getting the KSE Hard Charger honors coming from 20th to finish sixth. The World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series return to Knoxville Raceway tomorrow night to with the completion of the Brownells Big Guns Bash weekend at the Sprint Car Capital of the World.

The main event, originally scheduled to go 35 laps in distance, was adjusted to 41 laps to honor the late, great Jason Johnson.
“This is a special win for me and my team. To win a 41-lap race in honor of Jason Johnson is very special, and really emotional, ” said Aaron Reutzel in victory lane, driver Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports/Folkens Brothers Trucking/Fischer Body Shop/No. 87 sprint car. “I’ve known Jason a long time. I watched him race a lot in the area where I am from, and when I started to build a race team, he helped me out a lot. My car actually had a fuel line come off tonight, but I was too stubborn to stop. I wanted to win this one.”
Reutzel’s campaign at the front of the field was nearly flawless. After withstanding a trio of cautions during the first 11 circuits, one of which resulting in open red flag conditions due to a lengthy caution clean up effort, it was smooth sailing for the former ASCS national champion, ultimately sneaking away just enough in traffic to keep anywhere between a half-straightaway and a full straightaway between himself and second place running Jac Haudenschild.
Although escaping unscathed, Reutzel’s only close call of the 41-lap program occurred on lap 29 when the Texan caught a trio of lapped cars at once, forcing Reutzel to take evasive action and split all three competitors. With clearer lanes ahead, especially his preferred lane around the topside of the speedway, Reutzel drove on to score the $5,000 payday by a margin of victory equalling 1.34 seconds.
Chasing Reutzel most of the way, Jac Haudenschild finished second at Plymouth Speedway, and although he was able to keep Reutzel within two seconds at the final checkers, the “Wild Child” was never in any position to take the top spot from Reutzel. Lemoore, California’s Carson Macedo finished third from tenth on the grid, followed by Brady Bacon and Chad Kemenah.
Continuing on down the highway, the Dirt Oval at Route 66 in Joliet, Ill., will welcome the All Star Circuit of Champions for the second time in Series history on Saturday, June 30. Joining the stars and cars of the IRA Outlaw Sprint Series, the “Summer Slash” event at the state-of-the-art motorsports complex, the first and only All Star visit to the Land of Lincoln in 2018, will be a “must see” experience for any open wheel enthusiast. The All Star Circuit of Champions will face-off against many of the IRA’s best including multi-time IRA champion, Bill Balog; current Series point leader and two-time winner, Scotty Thiel; 2018 championship contenders, Jake Blackhurst and Jeremy Schultz; and 2018 IRA opening night winner, Steve Meyer.
MAVTV Motorsports Network, the official television home of the All Star Circuit of Champions in 2018, will be on hand to capture all of the action from the Dirt Oval at Route 66 on Saturday evening. The entire program will be recorded for a tape-delay broadcast set for later in the year. An updated MAVTV/All Star broadcast schedule will be published later this summer.
Dirt Oval at Route 66 will open pit gates at 12 p.m. with the All Star drivers meeting to follow at 6 p.m. Hot laps will hit the speedway at 7 p.m., sharp. Those seeking additional information should visit Dirt Oval at Route 66 at www.dirtoval66.com.

YORK HAVEN, Pa.: Gregg Foster had no intentions of competing at BAPS Motor Speedway on Sunday night.
Instead, he filled up the truck with mulch and was going to get caught up on some much-needed yard work.
Then came a call from his crew chief to put a seat in his son’s car to see if it fit. Once it did, Foster figured he would dump the mulch and head to the speedway in search of a Victory Lane appearance.
It wasn’t a pretty win, but the end result was all that mattered. Foster started on the pole and led every circuit in capturing the Super Sportsman main event for a program that was delayed one day because of weather.
“This is my favorite division in the world,” Foster said. “These guys are awesome. With Justin [Foster’s son] away in the military, it gave me a chance to run with them again.
“I’m not really comfortable in this car. It’s too small … I built it for a kid, and I’m a full-sized guy. We didn’t plan on racing tonight, but Tom, my crew chief called and said we should try that other seat. So, we took it out and put it in his car, and it fit.
“So, now we had to empty all the mulch and put it on the ground. We loaded up everything and got here at 4:30. It was the same when we won in the 358, so it seems we do better when we rush around.”
While Foster dominated the regular Super Sportsman main, Tom Wychoff captured his first career BAPS Motor Speedway victory in the make-up event from June 2nd. The win came after an 85-minute rain delay.
Billy Ney captured the PASS/IMCA 305 Sprint Car feature. Chris Derr won the Street Stock main event from May 5th, and Mike Walls topped the field in the regular Street Stock main event.
As for Foster, he wasn’t challenged over the 25-lap race distance. He beat Luke Deatrick to Turn 1 and was on cruise control … Sort of.
The Harrisburg driver struggled with tricky track conditions and barely made it to the finish to complete the win.
“That was probably not one of my better pieces of driving,” Foster said. “The track is really hard tonight, and the lighting is really dim in the corner down there. You can’t see the ruts and then you are bouncing through them.
“I hope I didn’t screw anyone up. I was bouncing around, and I don’t think I was on the ground half the time.”
Deatrick held on for second, recording his best career finish in the division. Scott Dellinger came from ninth to third, with Matt Ondek, and Davey Walsh completing the top five.
Wychoff kicked off the night by starting second in the make-up main event and taking the lead from pole-sitter Matt Ondek.
Mike Enders started sixth and carved his way into second. He chased down Wychoff after a Lap 11 caution period and started to challenge for the win in the last five laps of the event.
But Wychoff was up to the challenge. He held off Enders and collected his first career win at the speedway.
“I like those heavy tracks,” Wychoff said. “It turned out pretty well, and we’ll be back to try and get another one.”
Enders settled for second. Dellinger, who continues to lead the Super Sportsman points, came up to third, with Kenny Edkin, and Nate Young completing the top five.
In the make-up Street Stock event, Derr charged from fourth to take the lead and the eventual victory.
Randy Zechman jumped out front on the initial start before Bud Witmer took over on the second circuit. Derr passed Witmer for the point on Lap 5 and never looked back.
Jasen Geesaman came from ninth to second, with Eric Tripp, Zechman and Brad Bingaman completing the top five.
Mike Walls took the win in the regular 20-lap Street Stock feature, which was shortened to 16 laps after multiple cautions.
Walls started eighth on the grid and took the lead from Jason Townsend on the 10th circuit. He held off Jasen Geesaman down the stretch. Townsend, Will Walls, and Jim Palm completed the top five.
Billy Ney was victorious in the 305 Sprint Feature over Johnny Scarborough, Dave Grube, Austin Bishop and PASS/IMCA point leader Zach Newlin.

MYERSTOWN, Pa. (June 25, 2018) – With wet weather interfering with plans to visit Farley (Iowa) Speedway on Friday, the “Myerstown Missile” Brent Marks was forced to wait an extra day to resume World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series competition, this time following the Greatest Show On Dirt to Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin.
Marks’ trip to the Badger State was successful. Not discouraged by his ninth row starting position, Marks rallied in a big way, advancing from 17th to finish ninth at the final checkers. The top-ten finish bumped his World of Outlaws top-ten total to 12 on the season.
Marks, a second-year full-timer with the World of Outlaws, qualified for main event action by finishing sixth during his respective heat race; he started eighth.
“The weather hasn’t been our friend this year, but thankfully Beaver Dam was able to get the program in,” Marks explained, driver of the Brent Marks Racing/M&M Painting & Construction/BAPS Auto Paint & Supply/Eagle Hotel/No. 19 sprint car. “Despite starting pretty deep, we were able to move forward and earn another top-ten. The marks in the top-ten column have been increasing and it feels good. I can’t thank my team enough. Their hard work pays off.”
Up next on the schedule, Brent Marks and Brent Marks Racing will invade Knoxville (Iowa) Raceway for the two-day Brownells Big Guns Bash on Friday and Saturday, June 29-30. The Knoxville takeover will act as a prime test session for the upcoming Knoxville Nationals in August.

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (June 25, 2018) – Making his annual trek to the Buckeye State for Ohio Sprint Speedweek, Danny Dietrich ended his recent stretch of All Star Circuit of Champions competition with three top-ten finishes in six event starts, one of which inside the top-five. The Gettysburg native joined Tony Stewart’s All Stars at Attica Raceway Park, Eldora Speedway, Waynesfield Raceway Park, Wayne County Speedway, Sharon Speedway, and Atomic Speedway on June 15-20, highlighting the six-race schedule with a third place run at Sharon Speedway on Tuesday, June 19.
Dietrich’s podium run was amongst some good company, finishing just behind driving phenom Kyle Larson and rising NASCAR star Christopher Bell out of the 52 entries on hand for action.
In addition to his third place performance at Sharon, Dietrich finished ninth at Eldora Speedway during night two of Ohio Sprint Speedweek on Saturday, June 16, followed by a charge from 15th to finish seventh at Wayne County Speedway on Monday, June 18.
Unfortunately for the Gary Kauffman Racing entry, a mishap during B-main action at Atomic Speedway cut off Dietrich’s momentum supply; getting upside-down and failing to transfer into the evening’s main event. As the result, instead of sticking around to finish Ohio Sprint Speedweek, Dietrich returned home to Central Pennsylvania to enter events at Williams Grove Speedway and Lincoln Speedway on Friday and Saturday, June 22 & 23. Becoming an ongoing trend, Mother Nature stepped-in and interfered with both programs.
“It’s fun to have the opportunity to visit Ohio and race at tracks we don’t normally get to race at,” Danny Dietrich said, driver of the Gary Kauffman Racing/Weikert’s Livestock/Sandoe’s Fruit Market/Pace Performance/Gsell’s Whitetails/Hickory Run Orchards/Drop Of Ink Tattoo/Sweeney Cars/Self Made/No. 48 sprint car. “The fans in Ohio are fantastic and the little ovals are a lot of fun. Hopefully we can transfer some of our momentum built from Ohio Speedweek into PA Speedweek.”
Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing will continue their 2018 campaign with Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek; ten races in ten days stretched from Friday, June 29, until Sunday, July 8. The 2018 Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek schedule is comprised of seven tracks including Lincoln Speedway, Williams Grove Speedway, Hagerstown (Md.) Speedway, Grandview Speedway, Path Valley Speedway, Selinsgrove Speedway, and Port Royal Speedway. Action will ignite on Friday night, June 29, with a $5,000-to-win program at Williams Grove Speedway. Each PA Sprint Speedweek event will award a minimum of $5,000.
Danny Dietrich is the 2016 Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek champion. “Double-D” will enter the 2018 edition with five wins on the season.

LATE SHOWERS FORCE FEATURE POSTPONEMENT FOR 410 & 358 SPRINTS; 358 Late Model Feature Make-up to be determined
ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 6/23/2018 – After getting in all the qualifying for the 410 sprints, 358 sprints, and 358 late models, a late rain shower hit the speedway just as the 410 sprints were coming out to run the first of three features.
The rain stopped shortly afterwards. But the damage had been done. With standing water on the track, and high humidity in the air, it was determined it would take hours to get the track back into racing shape. And with that, the promoters of Lincoln Speedway reluctantly pulled the plug on the remaining three features at around 10:30 PM.
The 33-lap, $5,000-to-win 410 Sprint feature will be run in addition to the regularly scheduled show on July 14th.
The 20-lap 358 sprint feature will be run in addition to the regularly scheduled show on July 7th.
The 358 late model feature make-up has yet to be determined.
Heats for the 28 410 sprinters on hand were won by Lucas Wolfe, Chase Dietz, and Robbie Kendall, with Alan Krimes winning the consolation.
Heats for the 25 358 sprinters on hand were won by CJ Tracey, Troy Wagaman, Jr., and Dalton Dietrich.
Heats for the 22 358 Late Models on hand were won by Bobby Beard, Bernie Beard, and John Moser.
Next Saturday night, June 30th, Lincoln Speedway will host it ‘s first of two Pennsylvania Speedweek shows along with the 19th Annual Kevin Gobrecht Memorial for the 410 sprints paying $7,000-to-win. The Central PA Legends will round out the evening’s racing program. Competition Pit gates will open at 5 PM, Spectator Pit Admission & General Admission gates will open at 5:30 PM. Hot laps will get underway at 7 PM, with time trials getting underway at 7:30 PM.

Cole Duncan claims inaugural Rick Ferkel Classic title; Paul McMahan earns Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by C&R Racing championship
Starting from the pole position by way of dash victory, Duncan led all 35 circuits on Saturday night at the Atomic highbanks, keeping the “Buckeye Bullet” Dave Blaney and Lemoore, California’s Carson Macedo at bay. The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory bumped his career win total to four with the Series, his second in Chillicothe.
“I just went over and told Rick (Ferkel) he is one of my all-time heroes,” a teary-eyed Cole Duncan said in victory lane. “To earn this, the inaugural Rick Ferkel Classic win, there are no words. To do this at my home track, in front of all of these great fans, with my family and friends here, means so much to me.”
Duncan was able to run away from the field right from the drop of the green flag, leading defending All Star champion Chad Kemenah, and fellow Ohio native Dave Blaney, by the flagstand for the first time. By lap eight, Duncan was already in traffic, eventually allowing Blaney to chip away at his advantage with Carson Macedo in tow. Although intense during certain segments of the main event, Duncan maneuvered through the lapped cars well, always keeping at least a pair between himself and Blaney.
The main event’s first and only caution appeared on lap 30 giving Blaney an opportunity to restart on the back bumper of Duncan. Blaney’s restart attempt was good, but not good enough, unable to work by the familiar No. 22. Duncan went on the score the five-figure payday; certainly the most sentimental victory of this young career.
“Being the leader, you never really know how far out ahead you are. I felt really good, so I felt really confident the entire race,” Cole Duncan continued. “It started to lay some rubber down in certain spots, especially in the exit of the corners. You can race anywhere you want, but you have to make sure you are in the rubber when you exit the corners. It made lapped traffic a little difficult, but we were really good in traffic. I was just praying the tires would stay under me. It all worked out.”
Cole Duncan won the battle, but Paul McMahan won the war, claiming the 36th Annual Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by C&R Racing championship worth $3,000. McMahan’s Ohio Sprint Speedweek campaign included one victory - the Speedweek opener at Attica Raceway Park - as well as a grand total of six top-ten finishes in seven starts. Four of McMahan’s top-ten finishes were inside the top-five. The Speedweek title was the first of McMahan’s storied career.
“People had me written off a few years back, so to come back and do this is pretty special,” Paul McMahan said while celebrating his Speedweek title with crew. “We only won one race this week, but this goes to show that consistency wins championships. To clinch this title during Rick Ferkel’s race makes things even more special. I had the opportunity to race for Rick at one point. He is someone I have always looked up to. I’m glad to be here.”
Atomic Speedway/Speedweek Night #6 Rescheduled Feature Report:
The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 kicked-off the evening program at Atomic Speedway by running the Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by C&R Racing night six feature that was originally scheduled for Wednesday evening, June 20. Mother Nature invaded Chillicothe just as feature cars were beginning to be pushed out onto the speedway. A heavy downpour forced officials to postpone the event until Saturday.
Utilizing patience to power himself to a 35th-career All Star Circuit of Champions triumph, Alvada, Ohio’s Chad Kemenah was the first to visit victory lane on Saturday evening at Atomic Speedway, leading all 30 circuits during the Wednesday make-up feature to clinch his first All Star victory since winning the 2018 Series opener in Ocala, Florida.
The driver of the Hunter Racing/DKW Transport/Seneca Energy/Bonnell’s Rod Shop/No. 10H earned the top spot right from the drop of the green flag, powering ahead of fellow front row starter, Justin Peck, as the pair raced into turn one for the first time. Although dominate from the start, Kemenah’s trip to victory lane was far from down an easy path. Kemenah was forced to survive six stoppages during the 30-lapper, two of which resulting in red flag conditions.
“My car owner, Rob Hunter, really messed up today; he took the night off and stayed home tonight,” Chad Kemenah laughed in victory lane. “This is really cool. It feels great to get this done. To say our Speedweek has been up and down is an understatement, but this team doesn’t give up. I felt like we got better after that first red. (Brian Kemenah) came out and made some adjustments that really helped out the car. I lost a race on the final lap here to Dave Blaney last year. I’d drive into the fence before I let that happen again.”
Although it was Kemenah in control, it was Ryan Smith and Paul McMahan who were putting on the show, battling almost side-by-side for the runner-up position for a multitude of laps. Continuing to substitute for Max McGhee, Smith secured the runner-up spot for the first time on lap six. McMahan, a two-time winner thus far in 2018 for car owner Tom Buch, powered into third for the first time on lap eight.
The duo exchanged positions four times between laps 16 and 26 beginning with McMahan getting by Smith after a restart on lap 16. Smith returned the favor on lap 21, but it would not last long, as McMahan was able to sneak back by the familiar No. 11 after a restart on lap 22. The caution on lap 22, waved for an upside-down Mitch Harble, was the final stop of the night. It followed a trio of yellow flags during the first half of the main event on laps five, ten, and fourteen, as well as a red flag on lap 18 for Parker Price-Miller who was battling inside the top-five. All drivers involved in all accidents walked away unharmed.
Once green flag action returned following the lap 22 caution, McMahan and Smith’s battle resumed. By lap 26, Smith was all over McMahan again, ultimately powering back around the Nashville native via Elk Grove, Calif., to officially regain second on lap 26. After gaining second for the final time, Smith set his aim for Kemenah, working as hard as he could to match Kemenah’s pace through the middle of the speedway. A late charge would put Smith within a half-second of Kemenah, but time was out. Kemenah held on for the $5,000 payday, followed Ryan Smith, Paul McMahan, Jac Haudenschild, and Cap Henry.
With Ohio Sprint Speedweek in the books, the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue on down the highway and end the month of June with a pair of stops in the Midwest, first visiting Plymouth Speedway in Plymouth, Ind., on Friday, June 29, followed by a stop at the Dirt Oval at Route 66 in Joliet, Ill., on Saturday, June 30. If needed, Plymouth Speedway officials will utilize Sunday, July 1, as a rain date.
MAVTV Motorsports Network will be on hand to capture all of the action from Plymouth Speedway on Friday night. The second-ever All Star program at the northern Indiana oval will be aired on MAVTV later this year. A full broadcast schedule will be released later this summer.

Eliason won the Sears Craftsman Dash to earn the pole of the 30-lap Feature in his first career start at Nodak Speedway. Eliason powered away on the initial start, as Pittman maneuvered underneath front row starter David Gravell to take command of second down the backstretch of the opening circuit.
The lone caution of the event flew for Jack Croaker on Lap 5. Eliason again motored away on the ensuing restart as Pittman had his hands full with his KKR teammate Sweet. Sweet had the second position at the line on Lap 6, but Pittman muscled back underneath to take the position back the next lap.
Eliason set a strong pace out front in search of his second career Outlaw triumph. But as Eliason worked lapped traffic, the rest of the field closed in. At the halfway point, a blanket could be thrown over the top five.
Pittman reached Eliason’s tail tank on multiple occasions, looking for a way around the Roth Motorsports No.83. Pittman pulled even with Eliason in turn one on Lap 18, but the latter maintained the lead with momentum around the top down the backstretch.
Pittman got another run, this time on the top of three and four, that propelled his Ionomy-sponsored No.9 to the lead into turn one on Lap 22. From there, Pittman proved he was the class of the field, distancing himself and getting through lapped traffic like the veteran he is.
While Pittman pulled away, the war continued behind him. Sweet, Eliason, Schatz and Gravel all jockeyed for position in heavy traffic. Sweet, who at this point had lost his brakes completely, and Schatz shuffled Eliason back to fourth on Lap 25.
Out front though, it was all Daryn Pittman, who went on to win by more than three seconds for his fourth win of the year.
“My car was really good all night long from the moment we unloaded,” Pittman, who set Quick Time and won his Heat Race, said.
“The last few weeks we’ve really been hitting stride. I love winning before we have a week off and I love winning on Father’s Day, I am extremely blessed to travel with my wife and kids out here,” Pittman, the 2007 Outlaw winner at Nodak, added before thanking the large crowd for coming out on a Sunday.
Sweet was pleased with another runner-up finish.
“We were battling with Daryn and Cory the whole race, I actually lost brakes with around ten laps to go and I was just hanging on. You don’t realize how much you need brakes until they are gone,” Sweet said with a smile. “We’ll take another second place and move on to next week,” the Grass Valley, CA native added.
North Dakota’s own Donny Schatz was in good spirits after finishing third and thanked the large crowd for coming out on Father’s Day. “Obviously, we would have liked to get a win, but to be out here on Father’s Day in Minot was great. Thanks to all the fans for their support these past 25 years and for supporting dirt track racing,” Schatz added.
Last year’s winner at Nodak, David Gravel settled for fourth with Eliason getting shuffled back to fifth. Sheldon Haudenschild earned KSE Hard Charger honors coming from 13th to finish sixth. Logan Schuchart, Brent Marks, Ian Madsen and Dominic Scelzi completed the top ten at Nodak.

MINERSVILLE, PENNSYLVANIA (June 22nd, 2018)-
Josh Weller found himself back on the podium last night at Big Diamond Speedway. Weller, who hails from Mertztown, Pennsylvania started outside pole with Chandler Leiby on his inside.
Weller went out to the early lead on lap one, but Leiby was close behind applying pressure. Weller kept his cool and hit his marks every lap, even through lap traffic. The 63 could make it work on the top, bottom, or middle of the heavy dark clay surface.
Troy Betts was also an impressive runner going from 13th starting position to a 7th place finish. Eddie Strada, who started 8th, wa going for a pass for 4th when mud blew through his mud cover, ending his run. Robbie Stillwaggon proved the surface a racey one, going from 7th to 4th seamlessly.
