Brent Marks Gets Second Career Outlaw Victory in Non-Stop Weedsport Feature

WEEDSPORT, NY – July 29, 2018 – Brent Marks led all 35 laps en route to his second career World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series Feature at Weedsport Speedway. Despite Marks lapping up to eighth in the non-stop Feature, it was far from easy as he fended off Sheldon Haudenschild and Jacob Allen who completed the podium.

Brent Marks won the Sears Craftsman Dash, earning the pole for the 35-lap event along with fellow Pennsylvania native Jacob Allen. Marks got the jump on the opening lap and paced the field down the backstretch as Allen fended off New York native Chuck Hebing, who had a 360ci engine under the hood, for second.

Marks reached lapped traffic within five laps around the slicked off 3/8th oval. Allen, in search of his first career Outlaw victory, closed in on Marks through the middle of the racing surface with 10 laps complete.

As lapped traffic intensified, Sheldon Haudenschild got around Hebing for third on Lap 12 and set his sights on the lead duo. Marks and Allen continued to negotiate traffic efficiently as Haudenschild attempted to close in.

By Lap 20, Marks was held up behind a pair of lapped cars racing for position allowing Allen and Haudenschild to close in.

Lap 23 had the Weedsport Speedway crowd on their feet, with Haudenschild pounding the cushion, Allen glued to the bottom and Marks trying to navigate traffic. Haudenschild got around Allen on Lap 24 on the cushion and chased Marks down the backstretch. Haudenschild ducked low in turn three and four, searching for a way by Marks, who stayed committed to the top. Marks powered his way around the Stenhouse Jr.-Marshall No.17 to remain out front.

Marks continued to lead and remained aggressive through traffic. Sheldon remained within striking distance, but Marks was flawless through traffic, collecting his second career victory.

“That was a lot of fun with the track being so technical, getting through turn one and two was so tricky. I can’t thank everyone who helps out with this team enough. Last time we were in Victory Lane it was just me and Jesse and now we’ve added Dallas. This is his first Outlaw win, so that’s pretty special for him,” a jubilated Marks said. 

“We’ve been working hard this year and passing all the cars we have this year, it really helps in lapped traffic. I can’t believe I’m a two-time World of Outlaws winner,” Marks added with excitement.

Haudenschild was pleased with his second and talked about his attempt for the lead, “I got a run but I was so low on the backstretch, I couldn’t really do much into turn three.”

"I kind of had to regroup after I hit the wall in turn one. This Stenhouse Jr.-Marshall team has worked hard and we’ve got a lot of big races coming up that we’re looking forward to,” the 2017 World of Outlaws Rookie of the Year added.

Jacob Allen had high praise for his fellow statesman. “Brent was really good in traffic, he raced hard and ran good laps. This track is really slick and unique. I’m really happy with the night, but obviously I’m still looking for that first win,” Allen added with a smile.

Brad Sweet finished fourth with David Gravel completing the top five.

Donny Schatz crashed in Qualifying, forcing him to start last in his Heat Race. The nine-time Series Champion and Series Points Leader started 15th in the Feature and picked up KSE Hard Charger honors finishing sixth. Chuck Hebing finished an impressive seventh with his 360 motor and Ian Madsen was the last car on the lead lap in eighth.

The World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series returns to action next weekend with double Ironman 55 Features at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55. Both Friday and Saturday at Pevely will pay $20,000 to win and $1000 just to take the Green.

Sammy Swindell beats Eliason and Macedo at 34 Raceway for 27th career All Star victory

WEST BURLINGTON, Iowa (July 29, 2018) - Sammy Swindell is 62-years-old and still winning.

Exactly one year after earning his last Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory in West Lebanon, N.Y., “Slammin’” Sammy Swindell wins again with America’s Series, this time earning a $5,000 payday during action at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa. For Swindell, the All Star victory bumps his career total to 27 with the Series, forced to outduel Fresno, California’s Cory Eliason during the later stages of the 30-lap program to do so. The 34 Raceway victory was a first-ever for the Germantown, Tenn., native during All Star competition.

Cory Eliason held on to finish second with the All Stars to earn a first-ever podium finish with the Series, followed by Carson Macedo, Cale Conley, and Kerry Madsen.

“I think I’m the oldest person to ever win one of these races,” an elated Sammy Swindell said in victory lane, driver of the Thones Utility Construction/No. 59 sprint car. “We pulled this car out of the trailer tonight and didn’t touch a bolt on it. We won one now. We’ll work to improve from here.”

Sammy Swindell’s march to the front took patience and persistence. Starting from the outside of row two, Swindell completed the first eight circuits in the exact same position as he started. Traffic came into play quickly around the 3/8-mile, high banked oval which allowed Swindell to close the gap on the top three. Utilizing lapped cars, the former World of Outlaws champion was able to battle by Jackson and Knoxville winner, Kerry Madsen, to take the third spot officially on lap nine. Just one circuit later, the main event’s first caution appeared forcing the field to mold back together.

It was not until when caution flags reappeared that Swindell was able to make a bid for the second spot, ultimately driving by the familiar No. 7K of Cale Conley as the pair raced down the backstretch on lap 17. Halting Swindell’s obvious momentum in traffic, caution flags reappeared on lap 18, once again forcing the field to bunch back together.

Now on the tailtank of the Roth Motorsports entry of Cory Eliason, green flag conditions returned with Swindell now in hot pursuit of the top spot. The pair raced one-two for the next eight circuits in clear air, but traffic came into the picture soon thereafter. As Eliason reached the tail of the field to complete lap 26, Swindell made his move, actually peeking underneath the No. 83 as the pair battled into turn one. A drag race down the back straightaway resulted in Swindell’s favor, taking the lead officially with a slider between turns three and four on lap 27.

Although one last caution appeared with two circuits remaining setting up a green-white-checkered restart, Swindell was untouchable, sailing off to score the All Star victory in front of a packed-house by 1.25 seconds.

“We were kinda tight at the beginning, so as the laps continued to go down, the car was getting better,” Swindell continued. “We still have a few kinks that we need to work out.”

The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will enjoy a pair of off-weekends before returning to competition on Friday evening, August 17, at the Utica-Rome Speedway in Vernon, New York; the first of three consecutive events in the Empire State. Action will continue on Saturday evening, August 18, at the Orange County Fair Speedway in Middletown, followed by a stop at the Lebanon Valley Speedway in West Lebanon on Sunday, August 19. The trio of New York stops will open an August schedule that includes eight events across three states, four of which in Pennsylvania on August 23-26.

CHASE DIETZ SCORES THIRD CAREER LINCOLN WIN IN 410 SPRINT FEATURE; Tyler Walton Picks Up Career-first Lincoln Speedway 358 Sprint Win; Michael Altobelli, Jr. Dominates Mid-Atlantic Modifieds

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 7/28/2018 – York’s Chase Dietz survived 23 grueling non-stop laps through heavy lapped traffic and fought off the late-race challenges of Adam Wilt to record his third career win in the 25-lap 410 sprint feature Saturday night at the Fabulous Lincoln Speedway.

By virtue of his heat win earlier in the night, Dietz outraced fellow heat winner and polesitter Randy Baughman to lead the first lap at the start of the 25-lap feature. Fourth-starting Tim Glatfelter got by Baughman for the runner-up spot on the second lap, just before the only stoppage of action on the third.

Austin Hogue stopped in turn two on the third lap to bring out the caution. Little did anyone think at that time it was the last.

Dietz immediately went back to work on the top-side of the track on the restart and pulled away to nearly a one second lead over Glatfelter as the front-runners entered lapped traffic on the ninth lap.
With lapped cars battling for position all around the leaders, Dietz continued to make the high-groove work and opened up a one and a half second lead on Glatfelter with 10 laps to go.

Lapped cars started to became a serious issue as the laps wound down and forced Dietz off the top groove several occasions, allowing Glatfelter and sixth-starting Adam Wilt close the gap.

Wilt began to assert himself with five laps to go and got around Glatfelter for second in heavy lapped traffic with five laps to go. At the same time the race-leading Dietz got bottled up behind several lapped cars and suddenly saw Wilt to his inside with three laps to go.

And so the race was on to the checkered as Dietz and Wilt tried desperately to find an opening to get clear of the lapped cars.

Dietz found the opening he needed and slipped away over the final two laps to take the checkered .59-seconds ahead for his first 410 sprint win at Lincoln since July 16th 2016.
“I had lapped cars fighting for position and just did what I could to stay in front,” said a happy Dietz as he celebrated with family and friends in victory lane.

Wilt settled for a hard-fought second place finish, with Glatfelter finishing third.

Ninth-starting Alan Krimes and 10th-starting Jim Siegel finished fourth and fifth respectively.
Completing the top-10 were Matt Campbell, 15th-starting Brian Montieth, Tyler Ross, 21st-starting Brandon Rahmer, and 17th-starting Kyle Moody.

Heats for the 24 410 Sprints on hand were won by Scott Fisher, Baughman, and Dietz.

After winning nearly everything there was to win in micro-sprint racing, Mifflintown’s Tyler Walton had yet to win in a 358 sprinter at Lincoln Speedway. That was until Saturday night.

Just as it appeared Walton was going to settle for second behind Wyatt Hinkle in the 20-lap 358 sprint feature, a caution followed by a red flag for three flipping cars battling for top-five positions with five laps to go.

The restart gave Walton the opportunity he needed and immediately drove hard into the first turn as the race went back to green and slipped around Hinkle for the lead.

From there Walton drove away over the final five laps to record his first career Lincoln Speedway 358 Sprint win, and the second over his career since moving up from the micro-sprint sprint ranks a year ago.

Hinkle had to settle for second after leading the first 15 laps, with 12th-starting Troy Wagaman, Jr. finishing third, Dwight Leppo fourth, and Trey Hivner fifth.

Completing the top-10 were 14th-starting Kody Hartlaub, polesitter Jake Galloway, Dylan Norris, 16th-starting Kyle Denmyer, and 23rd-starting Tyler Ross.

Heats for the 26 358 Sprinters on hand were won by Walton, Galloway, and Brent Shearer.

Saxton’s Michael Altobelli, Jr. added to his great 2018 racing season with a dominating win in the 20-lap Mid-Atlantic Modified feature at Lincoln Speedway.

Altobelli grabbed the lead from outside front row starter Rick Hulson on the second lap and then put on a clinic the remaining 18 laps, surviving four cautions en route to the win.

A final caution with two laps to go set up a possible shootout with the veteran Hulson who had not given up after being passed for the lead on the second lap.

But Altobelli was not to be denied this night as he drove away the final laps for another convincing 2018 win.

Hulson settled for second, with polesitter James Sparks third, June 16th Lincoln winner Ray Kable fourth, and Justin Cullum fifth.

Completing the top-10 were Brent Hamilton, Mike Corbin, Ray Cicerrele, Josh Hughs, and Cody Oliver.

Heats for the 22 Mid-Atlantic Modifieds on hand were won by Brad Kling, Altobelli, and Rick Hulson.

Next Saturday night, August 4th, Lincoln Speedway swings back into action with the 410 Sprints and 358 Sprints being joined by the Classic Racing Series.

Dellinger picks up 6th feature win of the season Saturday night at BAPS Motor Speedway

Scott Dellinger was hungry.

Not only was Dellinger looking for another satisfying win in what has been a stellar season so far at BAPS Motor Speedway, he wanted that six-foot sub from Rock-It Pizza that is presented to the feature winner.

That was motivation enough. Dellinger started 11th on the grid and charged to the front in 14 laps to drive away for the victory in the 25-lap Super Sportsman main event. It was his sixth win of the season and 12th overall at the speedway.

“It’s been a while since I had any sub,” Dellinger said with a chuckle. “I had to bum it from the winners the last few weeks. It’s nice to get it, and we will share it with them tonight, too.”

A caution on the opening lap helped Dellinger move up a row, not that he needed it the way his car operated through the feature event.

While Dellinger made his way to the front, Matt Ondek and Paul Miller battled up front. Ondek led the first lap before Miller took over the top spot on Lap 2 and held it through the sixth circuit.

But Ondek wasn’t done. He stayed with Miller and surged into the lead on Lap 7, as Dellinger started to compete in the top five.

“It’s a demanding racetrack,” Dellinger said. “It definitely helped to move up a row. It may not seem like much at the beginning, but it’s one more car you didn’t get caught behind or lose one more lap with.

“It was a little dicey a few times with some of those guys. I believe I rubbed Nate [Young] in the corner, so I got back off him. I don’t need to wreck a racecar. It cost too much to do that.”

Fourth-place starter Timmie Barrick unseated Ondek at the front on Lap 11, but he couldn’t fight off Dellinger, who was on pace for another win.

A caution on Lap 15 made it easier. Dellinger blasted by Barrick on the restart and was able to build a little bit of a cushion by the time the caution was displayed on the 17th circuit.

“The last couple of weeks, Timmie Barrick’s been there,” Dellinger said. “He’s due and is not far off it. He was a tick different from where he needed to be tonight, and that’s where we capitalized.

“Sometimes sitting back and watching a race in front of you and the way it unfolds … it’s better than being out front trying to run away by yourself.”

Dellinger put it on cruise control from there. Three more cautions slowed his pace, but no one in the field could match his speed around the half-mile oval.

Barrick settled for second, with Miller holding third. Kenny Edkin started ninth and came up to fourth, with Ondek completing the top five. Mike Enders advanced from 23rd to eighth to earn Aero Wings Hard Charger honors.

Bruce Buckwalter Jr., Frankie Herr, and John Edkin were heat winners for the 24-car field. Nate Young was named the ArtWerks Hard Luck Award winner.

Chad Smith took the lead on Lap 3 and was declared the winner of the Morgan Paving/Aqua Fun Pools Street Stock main event. The race was stopped with 11 of 20 laps complete due to the 45-minute time limit.

Brian Walls led the first two laps before Smith, who started fifth, took over on Lap 3. There were nine cautions in the first 11 circuits, which led to officials checkering the event.

Eric Tripp, Chris Derr, Bob Scott Jr., and Jimmy Combs completed the top five. Jasen Geesaman, Derr, and Jason Townsend were heat winners for the 28-car field. Dustin Hollinger won the consolation.

Alex Updegraff took top honors in an entertaining 20-lap Super Homes Extreme Stock A-Main to close racing action.

Updegraff started on the pole and led the first two laps before being passed by Sam Rial. But Updegraff never lost touch of the leader and regained the top spot on the 18th circuit to take the victory.

Rial, Patrick McClane, Travis Horan, and Michael Goodwin completed the top five. Horan and Rial were heat winners for the 20-car field.

Alex Bright took the lead on Lap 12 from Brenden Bright and cruised to the win in the USAC Midget main event. Adam Pierson, Brenden Bright, Ryan Wilson and Andrew Layser completed the top five in the 10-car field.

Dewease Passes Dietrich For Port Royal Dream Race Victory, Pockets $12,450 Colton Flinner Wins Moon Shine Camo Super Late Model Main


PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Lance Dewease of Fayetteville won the second Living Legend Dream Race of his career at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night to notch his 110th career oval victory, worth $10,000.

Dewease overtook Danny Dietrich in traffic on the 12th lap of the 35-lap maint to pick up the win after also claiming one of the semi-mains earlier in the night, worth $2,000.

In the 25-lap Moon Shine Camo Rt. 35 Series super late model main, it was Colton Flinner of Allison Park taking the $2,200 victory after dueling with Tim Wilson for his first career oval victory.

Dietrich drew the pole and Dewease the second starting spot for the 410 sprint car Dream Race and Dietrich rushed into the lead on the first lap although Dewease tried to sneak into control early.

Only three laps of the event were recorded before the only caution flag of the race unfurled for Dylan Cisney who was stopped on the backstretch after breaking a rear end on his car.

Dietrich chose the inside line for the double file restart and got away from Dewease’s No. 69K when green reappeared.

With 10 laps down, Dietrich held a .701 second lead over Dewease, just before he entered the rear of the field on the 11th tour.

And it was in that traffic that Dewease was able to snare control when Dietrich set his No. 48 into the first corner to work by a lapped car.

As Dietrich drove low to get by the car he also failed to hold a stead line, instead sliding up across the racetrack and as he was sliding, Dewease was biting fast on the low side through the turns.

The pair drag raced onto the backchute before Dewease blasted across the middle of the third corner to slide up in front of Dietrich for good as the pair raced off of the fourth corner.

The race for second heated up next as Brock Zearfoss caught Dietrich on the 19th tour and swapped the spot with him.

But Dietrich was up to the task and continued to hold the position until lap 24 when Zearfoss seized second, leaving Dietrich to content with Logan Schuchart.

Dewease had a straightaway lead with four laps to go as he continued to pull away, taking the eventual win by 5.398 seconds.

Dietrich regrouped late in the race and was able to sneak by Zearfoss and reclaim second on the final lap with Zearfoss settling for third.

After starting 13th, Freddie Rahmer put on a show from start to finish, motoring front to finish fourth and collect a $250 Hard Charger Award.

Schuchart finished where he started in fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Greg Hodnett, Lucas Wolfe, Mike Wagner, Jacob Allen and James McFadden.

Twin semi mains worth $2,000 each were taken earlier in the night by McFadden and Dewease.

McFadden out raced and held off Logan Wagner to win the first semi with Dietrich finishing third.

Wagner did get by McFadden for the lead briefly on the eighth tour.

Dewease took his semi main victory over Logan Schuchart and Brock Zearfoss with Schuchart blasting into second on the first lap.

Logan Wagner set overall fast time on the night with a lap of 16.250 seconds.

Dewease took home a total of $12,450 for his night’s work including $200 to lead lap 27 and $250 to lead lap 22.

It was his fourth win of the season at the track and moved him to within 19 of tying Keith Kauffman on the track all-time win list.

Gene Knaub looked shot out of a cannon when the 25-lap super late model main got started and was driving away from the field on the seventh lap when he blew a tire, surrendering the point to Tim Wilson.

Wilson had Colton Flinner and Matt Parks in pursuit after getting the lead and Flinner proved a challenge as the race wore on.

The front pair was racing closely, side by side on the 17th tour when they collided in the first corner with both drivers sustaining damage while continuing on only to collect fourth runner Andy Haus.

The restart for Haus saw the pair continue to duel while Tim Smith Jr. took a stab at the lead but Wilson soon began slipping backward and Flinner took control with six laps to go.

After starting 10th, Jason Covert came to second during the final few laps and tracked down the leader only to run out of time to mount a winning bid.

Flinner took the victory by .611 seconds over Covert, Smith Jr., Dylan Yoder and Wilson.

Sixth through 10th went to Mike Lupfer, Jeff Rine, Kenny Moreland, Chad Myers and Roy Deese Jr.

Heats for the 32-car field went to Shaun Jones, Smith Jr., Flinner and Lupfer with Billy Wampler claiming the consolation race.

 SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Mark Smith of Sunbury secured the lead in Saturday night’s 25-lap 360 sprint car feature at Selinsgrove Speedway on the fourth circuit and drove to his third win of the season at the track.

The $2,000 victory was Smith’s 25th career in 358-360 sprint car racing at the Snyder County oval at the wheel of the Mach 1 Chassis No. 1.

Johnny Scarborough made it two-for-two in the 305 sprint car division at Selinsgrove this season when the Bomoseen, Vermont, driver bested a strong 32-car field.

Kyle Bachman of Selinsgrove scored his fourth win of the season and 49th career in the 15-lap pro stock main event, while Kevin Imes of McCalisterville won $1,000 in the 15-lap roadrunner invitational.

Jake Waters of Mifflintown, who was seriously injured in racing accident at the track on July 3, 2016, made an emotional behind-the-wheel return to Selinsgrove in the 305 sprint car division and drove to a solid fifth-place finish.

Selinsgrove Speedway is back in action at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 4, with the 18th annual Mach 1 Chassis National Open for 360 sprint cars paying $5,000 to win and $300 to start out of the $17,000-plus purse. The super late models and pro stocks will also be on the racing card. The rain date, if needed, will be Sunday, Aug. 5, at 7 p.m.

Front row starters Colby Womer and Eddie Strada drag raced into the first turn for the early lead in the 360 sprint car main event. Womer emerged out of turn two with the race lead. Sxith-place starter Mark Smith quickly worked his way into the runner-up position.

Womer led through lap three, when Smith made the winning pass using the inside lane out of turn four. On the eighth lap, third-place starter Michael Walter showed some speed and drove into the runner up position.

The race’s first caution flag unfurled on lap 11 when Ryan Linder’s car rolled to a stop in turn turn. On the ensuing restart, Smith set the pace with eighth-place starter Jason Shultz on the move. Shultz got by Womer for second on lap 15 and set his sights on Smith.

The field was regrouped on lap 23 when Mike Koehler brought out the caution flag with a flat tire on his machine. Smith led the rest of the way and posted a 1.3-second margin of victory over Shultz. Derek Locke, Walter, and Davie Franek rounded out the top five. 

In the 305 sprint car feature, polesitter Johnny Scarborough edged out front row starter Jake Waters for the lead. Waters chased Scarborough through lap nine when on a restart seventh-place starter Zach Newlin stormed around both Austin Bishop and Waters for the runner up position.

At the halfway point, Newlin was gaining on the leader and in slower traffic moved into striking distance. Newlin made a last ditch effort to snag the lead and win but came up a mere .28 of a second short at the finish line. Ken Duke, Bishop, and Waters rounded out the top five.

A multi-car tangle opened the pro stock race with most of the cars rejoining for the restart. Front row starter AJ Stroup pulled into the early lead until fifth-place starter Brandon Moser took command of the field.

Sixth-place starter Kyle Bachman reeled in Moser and dueled for the lead for several laps until Bachman gained control on lap six. Bachman stretched his lead in the final laps and posted a 1.3-second margin of victory over Moser. Tommy Slanker, Cory Long, and Shaun Lawton rounded out the top five.

Polesitter Dustin Hoffman powered into the early lead in the roadrunner race. On a lap two restart, fifth-place starter Ryan Leister made a pass for the front spot with Hoffman and Will Brunson racing for second.

On the fifth circuit, Brunson and Hoffman made contact in turn four, with both of their cars receiving damage. Ryan Zook also withdrew from the race. On the lap six restart, Kevin Imes took over the lead with Bob Bussey and Keith Bissinger in pursuit.

In a one-lap chase to the checkered, Imes held off Bussey by just .04 of a second for the win. Bissinger, Jake Jones, and Terry Kramer rounded out the top five.

Kerry Madsen goes back-to-back with the All Star Circuit of Champions with win at Knoxville Raceway

KNOXVILLE, Iowa (July 28, 2018) - Kerry Madsen nearly counted himself out on Saturday night at Knoxville Raceway, forced to start from the inside of seven for the 25-lap main event after finishing third during his respective heat race. Although distraught over his starting position, the veteran proved himself wrong in a hurry, quickly advancing through the feature field to earn his second Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event victory in as many days.

Now a nine-time winner with the All Star Circuit of Champions, the “Madman” sealed his fate on lap 20, making an impressive move around fellow sprint car veteran, Sammy Swindell, to cash-in for a $5,000 payday.

Defending All Star champion, Chad Kemenah, finished third at Knoxville Raceway, followed by “Blackjack” Brian Brown and Brooke Tatnell.

“We’ve been really quick lately, we just haven’t been able to catch any breaks,” Kerry Madsen explained in victory lane, driver of the Game Treestands/No. 2M sprint car. “Last night was a great night for us, and tonight having to start 13th, I was like ‘oh man, we are done.’ But I’ll tell you what, Guy Forbrook has been working hard on this car. That thing was a rocketship tonight.”

Tea, South Dakota’s Matt Juhl and seven-time Knoxville Raceway track champion, Terry McCarl, led the feature field to green on Saturday night at the Sprint Car Capital of the World. Juhl earned the early advantage, leading McCarl, Brooke Tatnell, and Lynton Jeffrey by the flagstand for the first time. Juhl led the first three circuits before the main event’s first red flag appeared on lap four. Trey Starks was the driver involved; he walked away unharmed.

Green flag action resumed with Terry McCarl now on the back bumper of Juhl. McCarl chased Juhl for the next eight circuits before making his first, official bid for the top spot on lap 12. Although gaining the top spot with ease, Juhl had some visible programs, ultimately surrendering his position and pulling off into the infield.

After McCarl’s successful overtaking, the driver of the familiar No. 24 led for the next two circuits, instantly opening up to a three-second command. Unfortunately for T-Mac, the turn one cushion got the best of the Altoona, Iowa, native, eventually sending McCarl on a wild ride between turns one and two. As a result, the point position was left open for Sammy Swindell.

Swindell, who started seventh on the feature grid, led the field back to green with Brooke Tatnell and Chad Kemenah in tow. By that point, Kerry Madsen was full of life, already making his presence known well within the top-five, actually powering into the runner-up spot by the completion of lap 16.

Lap by lap, Madsen picked away at Swindell’s lead, shrinking his command from one second on lap 17, to a mere-.2 seconds by the completion of lap 19. By the time the pair raced into turn one on lap 20, Madsen was within striking distance and attempted to slide the Germantown, Tenn., native through corner number two. Although Madsen’s initial slider did not stick, his attempt to overtake the top spot in turns three and four did succeed, ultimately pulling away from Swindell as the pair drag raced off of corner number four.

From that point forward, it was all Madsen at the front of the field, quickly accelerating to an impressive command that stretched to nearly three seconds by lap 25.

“This is a fun team to be a part of,” Madsen explained. “I have really enjoyed the last year and a half. This is a great time of year to get good.”

Moving a little further east, the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will conclude their four-race stretch through the Midwest with a stop on Sunday evening, July 29, at the 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa. Just the third appearance in Series history, Tony Stewart’s All Stars will battle for a $5,000 top prize during their Sunday night stop at the 3/8-mile, semi-banked oval, officially concluding their four-track, three-state sweep through the central time zone.

34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa, will open pit gates at 2 p.m. on Sunday, July 29. A mandatory All Star Circuit of Champions drivers meeting will take shape at 5:45 p.m., followed by hot laps at 6:30 p.m. Those seeking additional news and notes should visit 34 Raceway live on the Web at

David Gravel Tames Ransomville for Fifth Victory of 2018

RANSOMVILLE, NY – July 27, 2018 – David Gravel fought off multiple charges from Brad Sweet to lead all 30 laps and claim his fifth win of the 2018 World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series 40th Anniversary Season at Ransomville Speedway. Sweet took the lead on two occasions but settled for second for the second consecutive year at Ransomville. Polesitter Donny Schatz completed the podium.

Donny Schatz won the Sears Craftsman Dash, earning the pole for the 30 Lap Feature, in search of his 16th victory of the year.

Action was halted on the opening lap after Paulie Colagiovanni went for a wild ride up and over the turn three and four wall. Colagiovanni was uninjured and walked away from the incident under his own power to a large roar from the massive Ransomville Speedway crowd.

David Gravel powered around Donny Schatz to pace the field down the backstretch and lead the opening lap. Brad Sweet went around Schatz to take second on Lap 3.

Another Red Flag halted action as Daryn Pittman got upside down battling for position inside the top ten on Lap 4. Pittman walked away from the incident under his own power.

A long stretch of Green Flag laps allowed Gravel and Sweet to reach heavy lapped traffic. The duo sliced and diced through slower cars littered around the 3/8th mile. Sweet cleared Gravel with a slide job on Lap 10, but Gravel turned back underneath to edge Sweet at the line.

As the duo continued to navigate traffic, Sweet edged in front of Gravel once again down the backstretch on Lap 17, but once again Gravel willed his CJB Motorsports No.5 back in front at the stripe.

One lap later the final caution of the night flew for an ailing Dan Bennett, taking the leaders out of traffic with 12 laps remaining. Gravel motored away with a clear track in front of him.

Gravel would be forced to clear a pair of lapped cars running side-by-side and he did so with relative ease, axing any chance of late race heroics from Sweet.

“I was being a little cautious, I blew a tire here last year and I didn’t want to do that again this year. When Brad showed his nose, I knew I had to step up my game and luckily, I was able to get back by him,” Gravel said in Victory Lane.

“We’ve been fast here the past couple of weeks, it’s good to get another win. This is our first win in a CJB house car, Barry [Jackson] has put a lot of hours in to make these things go fast,” Gravel added.

Sweet settled for second and complimented Gravel. “David did a nice job getting through traffic, especially with the lapped cars battling side-by-side. I think we were pretty equal with him, my guys gave me a great car,” Sweet said next to his Kasey Kahne Racing No.49.

After starting on the pole, Schatz was disappointed to fade to third, but made no excuses. “We weren’t good enough to compete for the win, you lick your wounds some days and come back stronger,” Schatz said before thanking his crew for their continued effort.

Kraig Kinser had a season-best fourth place finish with Logan Schuchart completing the top five.

The World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series continues its 40th Anniversary Season Sunday, July 29 at Weedsport Speedway with the Empire State Challenge. Following that, the Series will head to Pevely, MO for two 55-lap, $20,000 to win Ironman 55 Features at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55!

The Madman pockets $10,000 during All Star visit to Jackson Motorplex

JACKSON, Minn. (June 27, 2018) - The “Madman” Kerry Madsen put on a show during Friday’s fair race at Jackson (Minn.) Motorplex featuring the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1, ultimately battling through a four-car fray near the midpoint of the 30-lap program to solidify a $10,000 payday. Madsen, who now owns eight All Star Circuit of Champions victories over the course of his storied career, started fourth on the feature grid and took the lead officially on lap 16, driving by race-long leader, Josh Baughman, with a power move on the cushion. The All Star victory was Madsen’s first of the 2018 season.

Clute, Texas’ Aaron Reutzel climbed six positions to finish second at the final checkers, followed by Chad Kemenah, Dave Blaney, and Carson Macedo.

In addition, fans from coast-to-coast will have the opportunity to relive the excitement from the state-of-the-art complex as MAVTV Motorsports Network, the official television home of the All Star Circuit of Champions in 2018, was on hand to capture all of the action. Air dates for the event will be released in the near-future.

“It feels good to put a night like tonight together and win in front of all of our home fans and sponsors,” Kerry Madsen said in victory lane, pilot of the 2M sprint car. “It was a fun race there toward the middle, but we were able to get away from those guys and get the lead before the track got real narrow. This is a great way to start the weekend. I’m very proud to be a part of this team and happy for everyone involved.”

Although it was Madsen who earned the payday, it was Josh Baughman who earned the initial jump, taking command from the outside-pole position over Chad Kemenah and Dave Blaney. With a clear track ahead, Baughman was able to build a strong advantage in a hurry, escaping to a near-two second lead with just five laps in the books.

The pace was quick, but traffic soon halted Baughman’s momentum which allowed Kemenah, Blaney, and eventually Madsen, to close the gap. By lap 12, Baughman’s advantage was all but erased, now with four cars on his heels battling for positions two through five.

Blaney drove by Kemenah at the exit of turn four on lap 12 to take the runner-up spot, only to be negated the following circuit. By this point, Madsen was already applying pressure on the frontrunners, soon commencing a battle with Kemenah and Blaney for a podium position. As Kemenah drove back by Blaney to regain second, Madsen also slipped by the “Buckeye Bullet” to take third on lap 13, following that advancement with another move on lap 14 to scoot around Kemenah for second. Just two circuits later, Madsen was in command, actually driving around Baughman at the exit of turn four to officially lead lap 16.

Madsen’s lead grew in a hurry, but it was cut down just as fast as it was built. Jackson Speedway’s surface started to build a thin line of rubber around the bottom of the speedway, ultimately forcing all competitors to move to the bottom groove. Trying to take advantage of the situation, Aaron Reutzel, who followed Madsen through the chaos to claim second over Kemenah and Blaney on lap 19, tried to apply pressure on the “Madman” while racing through the narrow groove, but time was out. Madsen crossed under the final checkers with a one second lead.

“It was important to get to the front in a hurry and find the abrasiveness around the bottom of the speedway,” Madsen continued. “I think we were all a little worried that the track was going to do that. It all worked out in the end.”

With two events down and two to go, the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue their four-race trek through the Midwest with a one-night stand at the Sprint Car Capital of the World - Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday evening, July 28. Tony Stewart’s All Stars have made 16 prior appearances at the world-famous Marion County Fairgrounds, but only two repeat winners have been crowned. The last All Star visit to Knoxville Raceway took place in 2011 with Kevin Swindell taking the final checkers.

Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, will open pit gates at 3 p.m. on Saturday, July 28. A mandatory All Star Circuit of Champions drivers meeting will take shape at 6 p.m., followed by hot laps at 6:45 p.m. Those seeking additional news and notes should visit Knoxville Raceway live on the Web at

Ryan Smith takes advantage of Macedo’s misfortune for Angell Park All Star victory

SUN PRAIRIE, Wis. (July 26, 2018) - The “Kunkletown Kid” Ryan Smith earned his first Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory of the 2018 season in a thriller on Thursday night at Angell Park Speedway, inheriting command with just two circuits remaining after race leader, Carson Macedo, retired with mechanical woes. In actuality, Smith, the part-time pilot of the McGhee Motorsports/Mike McGhee and Associates/No. 11 sprint car, inherited the lead twice during the All Star/IRA Outlaw Sprint Series event in Sun Prairie, Wis., but the second proved to be worth $5,000.

Multi-time IRA Outlaw Sprint Series champion, Bill Balog, rallied nine positions to finish second at Angell Park Speedway, followed by Dave Blaney, Chad Kemenah, and California invader, Rico Abreu.

“I really can’t thank my guys enough for their hard work, and for them giving me this opportunity to drive their car,” Ryan Smith said in Angell Park Speedway victory lane. “We’ve been getting faster and faster every time we race together. It feels great to finally get an All Star win.”

Although Smith started from the pole position, it was fellow front row starter Aaron Reutzel who earned the early advantage, immediately taking control of the 24-car field as the opening green flags waved.

A quick pace around Angell Park Speedway’s 1/3-mile, clay oval led the Cute, Texas, native into traffic for the first time on lap four. Despite multiple roadblocks in the form of lapped cars, Reutzel was able to maintain momentum by utilizing the speedway’s gnarly cushion, weaving through traffic safely until the main event’s first caution appeared on lap 13. Unfortunately for Reutzel, he would become involved in that caution, eventually forced to retire and surrender the lead after another driver made contact with the seven-time All Star winner while attempting to slow for the caution. Reutzel’s damage was severe and would not return.

With Reutzel out, Ryan Smith would inherit the top spot, now with Chad Kemenah and Carson Macedo on his heels. Smith led the field for the next five circuits until a mistake cost him the point position. Miscalculating the turn four cushion, Smith jumped the edge of the racing groove and nearly lost control allowing fifth-starting Carson Macedo to drive by to lead lap 19.

Ironically enough, the turn four cushion, which nearly ended Smith’s feature campaign entirely, gave the “Kunkletown Kid” a second chance. As Macedo was battling through traffic with two and a half laps remaining, the Lemoore, Calif., native hopped the curb in turn four resulting in terminal front end damage. Macedo limped across the line but caution flags waved soon thereafter setting up a green-white-checkered restart. Ryan Smith inherited the top spot, ultimately holding off Bill Balog and Dave Blaney at the final checkers.

“Definitely a wild one tonight,” Smith continued. “That was a tough deal for Carson (Macedo). I’ve lost races the same way and it definitely hurts. The cushion bit us once, but we were able to capitalize on my mistake later in the race and get the win. We’ll head further down the road and try again tomorrow at Jackson.”

The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue their four-day trek through the Midwest with a stop at the Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn., on Friday, July 27. Tony Stewart’s All Stars will battle for a $10,000 top prize during their visit to southern Minnesota’s state-of-the-art complex; the first and only All Star visit to the Land of 10,000 Lakes in 2018.

Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn., will open pit gates at 2 p.m. on Friday, July 27. A mandatory All Star Circuit of Champions drivers meeting will take shape at 6:30 p.m., followed by hot laps at 7:30 p.m. Those seeking additional news and notes should visit Jackson Motorplex live on the Web at
