Aaron Reutzel leads All Stars to victory during Jack Gunn Memorial at Williams Grove Speedway; Dewease gets redemption during second 20-lapper

Bill McIntyre photo
MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (August 23, 2019) - For the first time in Series history, the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 defeated the Pennsylvania Posse at Williams Grove Speedway, doing so in dramatic fashion during the first of two Jack Gunn Memorial, 20-lap main events on Friday night, August 23.

Aaron Reutzel, the defending All Star Circuit of Champions titleholder, as well as the current Series point leader and season win leader, led the charge from the pole position during the first 20-lapper at the world-famous half-mile, securing his place in Williams Grove Speedway history books by leading all 20 circuits, all while holding off the track’s all-time win leader and six-time champion, Lance Dewease. In addition, Reutzel’s $4,000 victory snapped a 35-race winless streak at The Grove for Tony Stewart’s All Stars, a stretch that dates back to 1970.

“I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited for an All Star win,” an ecstatic Aaron Reutzel said in victory lane, driver of the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports/Folkens Brothers Trucking/Fischer Body Shop/No. 87 sprint car. “I think this goes to show how tough it is here and how hard it is to win here. I said it yesterday - we beat the Posse at Grandview, but I don’t think you actually ‘beat the Posse’ until you do it at Williams Grove. It’s pretty special to come in here and do that.”

Despite starting from the pole position, it was a hard-fought 20 laps for the Clute, Texas-native, forced to battle wheel-to-wheel and wing-to-wing with Lance Dewease during much of the second-half of the main event. Things only intensified as lap traffic increased, and by the time the leaders hit halfway, the lapped cars were stacked two and three wide.

Although Dewease and Paul McMahan, who battled in the runner-up spot until Dewease drove by the Nashville-native on lap 11, kept tabs on Reutzel in traffic, it was not until lap 14 when Reutzel received his first threatening challenge.

Attempting to utilize a slider between turns one and two, Dewease did his best to take control over Reutzel, only to be denied by the defending champion a half-lap later at the exit of turn four.

Despite being out-drove during the first Jack Gunn Memorial main event at Williams Grove Speedway, it did not take long for Fayetteville’s Lance Dewease to find his way back to All Star Circuit of Champions victory lane, ultimately winning the second of two $4,000 paydays and bumping his Williams Grove Speedway win count to 97. Impressive enough, Dewease now owns 39 All Star victories, eight of which accomplished at the Cumberland County paperclip.

“We just keep plugging away with this race car,” Lance Dewease expressed, driver of the Don Kreitz, Jr.-owned/Schannauer Plumbing and Heating/Hess Iron/No. 69K sprint car. “The guys have been working hard since Knoxville. We weren’t too happy with how things ended out there, but we were pretty good all night tonight. I think I may have been a little too timid during the first feature, but I was able to be a little more aggressive during the second.”

By virtue of a six-position inversion draw, Lance Dewease started fifth on the second Jack Gunn Memorial main event grid. Although it took six circuits for Dewease to advance his first position, it was smooth sailing from that point forward. Just one circuit later, Dewease was able to drive by Adam Wilt for third, next setting aim on Ryan Smith and race-long leader, Kyle Moody.

By lap 12, Dewease was all over Smith for second, eventually taking the spot before the pair got back to the flagstand. It would only take Dewease two more laps to solidify his place at the top of the running order, the result of a massive dive into corner number three to get by Moody on lap 14.

“That’s my favorite corner around this place,” Lance Dewease said about turn three and four. “We can do that stuff pretty good when we are right.”

Ryan Smith drove by Moody to steal second before the final checkers, followed by Moody, Adam Wilt and Chad Trout.

Fans should note that the Jack Gunn Memorial will be aired on MAVTV Motorsports Network on October 20.

The ‘Fabulous’ Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pennsylvania, will have their fair share of All Star competition on Saturday evening, August 24. Similar to their visit to Grandview two nights prior, the All Stars will chase a $5,000 winner’s share in the Pigeon Hills.

Lincoln Speedway will open pit gates at 3 p.m. on Saturday, August 24. Action will commence with a mandatory drivers meeting at 6 p.m., followed by hot laps at 6:45 p.m., sharp. Those seeking additional information should visit Lincoln Speedway live on the Web at www.lincolnspeedway.com.

ROOKIE RISING: Macedo wins $20K NOS Energy Drink Showdown at Black Hills

Carson Macedo’s goal entering his World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series rookie year was to run well each week and pick up a couple of wins by the end of the season.

Friday night at Black Hills Speedway for the $20,000-to-win NOS Energy Drink Rushmore Outlaw Showdown he picked up his third win of the season – in his first race at Black Hills – and second top-five in-a-row.

“It’s pretty cool,” Macedo said. “To win races was my main goal. I thought if I could get out here and win some races and at least show I could maybe have the speed to contend at one point that my team would get happy and we could all stick together for a few years. I think we can really build something great here.”

Macedo, of Lemoore, Calif., had speed with his Kyle Larson Racing team all night. He charged from sixth-place to second in his Drydene Heat race. Then followed that up with another runner-up finish in the DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash.

At the start of the 25-lap Feature, Macedo charged after the lead with the aggression of a hungry young cub. Hammering the throttle around the cushion, Macedo stayed side-by-side with polesitter Shane Stewart through the first turn. By the exit of turn two the two left inches between their tires, but Macedo never lifted and launched to the lead down the backstretch.

However, before Macedo could complete the first lap and make the lead change official, the red flag came out for Kevin Ingle flipping on his side in turn two.

When the race went green again, Stewart wasn’t going to let the rookie best him. He shot to the lead in front of Macedo into turn one. Daryn Pittman charged from fourth-place to third down the front stretch and tried a Hail Mary slide job into the first turn to take the lead, but Stewart and Macedo powered by him on the outside.

Stewart then held command of the lead for the next nine laps, putting close to a half of a track distance between he and Macedo. The Oklahoma-native was hungry and determined for a win. His last and only win his year came in June at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway. But his joyride out front was cut short by a caution for Ian Madsen cutting a tire and hitting the wall with 16 laps to go.

The field lined back up two-by-two. When it did, Stewart chose the outside line. A mistake. Macedo got the better jump on the restart running the bottom and drove past Stewart down the front stretch.

“I obviously should have picked the bottom,” a dejected Stewart said after the race. “I felt like my right rear (tire) needed to be in grip. I slid my tires a little bit on the initial start and let Carson get a run on me. I didn’t want to do that again. My motor stumbled just a little bit, but it was enough for him to get a run on me.

“We haven’t been worth a crap in a long time and we finally have a good car and I flat just threw it away on the restart. Just can’t thank my guys enough. They’ve stuck through thick and thin and continue to work hard. Just messed up.”

Macedo pulled away from Stewart after taking the lead, but in the final few laps Stewart was putting together better laps than Macedo. On the final lap through the final corner, Macedo slid up the track, almost hitting the wall. That allowed Stewart to cut the lead in half.

But time ran out for the KI Crossbow No. 5. Macedo throttled his Chevrolet Accessories No. 2 past the waving checkered flag with a close to half a second lead.

“I was really struggling to get off of (turn) two,” Macedo said. “Then I’d get tight in turns three and four and I didn’t really know what to do. I know we started to fade there a little bit. I tried to keep my pace as best I could. My guys did a really good job. I say it all the time, this sport is weighed on mechanics and they do a really good job.”

Behind Macedo and Stewart, 2019 Knoxville Nationals winner David Gravel charged his was from sixth-place to third – his third podium finish in-a-row.

“I cost our team a win in the Dash,” said Gravel, who finished sixth in the Dash.

If he was able to start at least fourth in the Feature, he said he felt like he could have possibly contended for the win. However, his podium finished helped him gain points on the top two in the championship point standings.

With points leader Donny Schatz finishing seventh, Gravel currently sits 112 points back from the lead. Brad Sweet, who sits second in points, finished eighth and is 26 points behind Schatz.

Macedo had hoped to break into the top-five in points by the end of the year, but knows there’s an uphill battle to do so, sitting sixth in points, 160 points behind fifth-place. However, being able to grab big wins at tracks he’s never been to before, or only a few times, is a big confidence booster.

“It’s huge,” Macedo said. “It’s hard to win these Outlaw races. They’re not easy to win. These are the best drivers in the world. Your car has to be good. You have to be good. You have to make good decisions throughout the race. You have to have good starts. It all goes hand and hand. I think if we can continue to do that we’ll see ourselves up here more often.”

Lynch Tops Sprints; Flinner Cruises to Victory; Shingledecker Holds off Swartzlander for 4th Win; Dietz Bests Pro Stocks

Sarver, PA (August 24, 2019) The Fab4 Revved up with Marburger made it’s final appearance of 2019 on Friday night with a huge crowd on hand that got to witness history in the making as two first-time track champions were crowned while a third added to his Hall of Fame resume.  On perhaps one of the raciest tracks of the season, the night was full of suspense and intrigue and provided an entertaining evening of action for all in attendance.

Sye Lynch bolted forward with authority in the Peoples Gas DIRTcar Sprint main event from his seventh starting spot and quickly found himself in the lead. However, he was challenged by title hopeful Carl Bowser who was able to run him down mid race and make a bid for the lead. The two drivers traded slidejobs as behind them, AJ Flick was making forward progress and made his presence known in the second half of the race. Lynch was able to hold the lead in the waning laps while Flick made his way past Bowser for the second spot, but out front, Lynch was able to keep the pack behind him to collect the feature win. For the Apollo, PA native, it was an especially lucrative win as he collected $1200 on top of of his feature winnings courtesy of winning the Fence by Maintenance Service “Sprint to Checkers” bonus. Meanwhile, Jack Sodeman Jr. was able to come home with a solid fourth place finish to seal his second career track championship.

Colton Flinner left no doubt in the Precise Racing Products Late Model feature as he kept the field behind him for 25 laps en route to his second victory of the season. Flinner maintained a healthy margin over his closest competitors and was seemingly in another zip code on Friday night and was also aided by early mishaps and cautions that ended the nights of invader Jared Hawkins and last week’s main event winner, Jared Miley.  2019 Late Model champion Ken Schaltenbrand was able to cross the line in second place while Tommy Beck picked up the final podium spot with a solid performance.

The tightest points battle in all four divisions belonged to the Diehl Automotive Big Block Modifieds as Brian Swartzlander and Rex King Jr. entered the night tied for the lead. However, they both had to contend with Jeremiah Shingledecker who set a fast pace up front in main event action. Swartzlander was able to put himself second and was also able to challenge Shingledecker from time to time for the top spot, taking looks underneath the leader at different times, but was unable to make the pass happen as Shingledecker managed to take home his fourth feature win of 2019.  Meanwhile, King Jr. could not come up with a performance that could challenge Swartzlander’s on the night as he came home with a sixth place finish. Swartzlander collected his eighth track title, the most for any driver in any division in over 50 years of racing at The Action Track.

Corey McPherson started on the pole of the Millerstown Pic-A-Part DIRTcar/RUSH Pro Stock main event and was just four points behind leader Tyler Dietz in the standings as the green flag fell. However, Dietz was able to gradually work through the traffic ahead of him and chase down McPherson, eventually making the pass for the lead with nine laps in the books. Once out front, he never looked back en route to his fourth feature in of the season while taking his first career track title.

Aaron Reutzel leads all 35 to become first name etched on Grandview Speedway’s Hodnett Cup, reclaims Series point lead

BECHTELSVILLE, Pa. (August 22, 2019) - For the second consecutive season, and with MAVTV Motorsports Network cameras rolling, Clute, Texas’ Aaron Reutzel earned his way into Grandview Speedway victory lane, only this time etching his name even deeper into sprint car history by becoming the first name added to the illustrious Hodnett Cup. Set to be a signature award when the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 visit the Bechtelsville, Pennsylvania, oval, the Hodnett Cup will be decorated year by year, as each winner’s name will be added for all to see.

Reutzel, driver of the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports/Folkens Brothers Trucking/Fischer Body Shop/No. 87 sprint car, led all 35 circuits on Thursday night at Grandview Speedway, forced to survive a heavyweight bout in traffic to secure his Series-leading eighth All Star victory of the 2019 season. In addition, the Grandview Speedway triumph also allowed the defending All Star Circuit of Champions titleholder to reclaim the championship points lead, now with a two point advantage over six-time Series champion, Dale Blaney.

Before Reutzel could march his way to victory against the infamous Pennsylvania Posse, Mother Nature intervened just after qualifying resulting in a lengthy delay. Suffice it to say, track and Series officials held their ground and allowed the weather to pass.

“I just want to thank all of the fans, as well as all of the officials for sticking this one out and not throwing in the towel. We all really appreciate their efforts,” Aaron Reutzel said in victory lane. “It was definitely a hard call to make, but I’m glad they did it. The track was really fast tonight because of the rain. We were really lucky to draw the one [during dash redraw]. That was a pretty big deal.”

Despite starting from the pole position and earning the initial jump, the path to victory was not paved easy for Reutzel. After a pair of cautions, one resulting in red flag conditions, disturbed competition during the first six circuits, a long green followed, thus creating periods of dense traffic around the Grandview bullring.

As traffic started to intensify, so did the pressure on Reutzel for the lead. By lap 20, Paul McMahan, who battled in the second position the entire distance up until that point, was all over Reutzel for the top spot. Danny Dietrich, a 13-time winner in 2019, soon threw his hat into the ring creating a three-car battle for the lead. The lead trio raced nearly nose to tail until a yellow sign of relief waved for Reutzel on lap 27. The caution allowed Reutzel to restart in clean air, and that is where he dominated.

Paul McMahan held on to finish second at the final checkers, followed by Danny Dietrich, Ryan Smith and Ryan Taylor.

“There were a lot of lapped cars that were not cooperating,” Aaron Reutzel explained. “In clean air I was really good, but in dirty air I struggled a little bit. Hats off to my guys. Night in and night out, they bust their butts and it really shows.”

Fans will have the opportunity to relive the action from Grandview Speedway on MAVTV Motorsports Network on October 13.

Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, will host the All Star Circuit of Champions on Friday evening, August 23. Headlining a monster program at the world-famous half-mile, the annual Jack Gunn Memorial will be the main attraction at Williams Grove Speedway featuring a pair of 20-lap main events, each awarding a $4,000 top prize. The A-main finish of the first 20-lapper will help set the field for the second 20-lapper; a pill draw conducted at the conclusion of the first feature will determine the number of cars inverted for the start of the second.

Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, will open pit gates at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, August 23. A mandatory All Star drivers meeting will take shape at 6:30 p.m., followed by hot laps at 7 p.m. Those seeking additional news and notes should visit Williams Grove Speedway live on the Web at www.williamsgrove.com.

Schatz looks to continue winning ways at Black Hills and Big Sky Excitement brewing with Formula Drift champion to make appearance at Black Hills, championship battle raging on at both tracks

RAPID CITY, SD – Aug. 21 – Ten-time World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series champion Donny Schatz has found his groove again.

With a dominating win in his home state last week and reclaiming the points lead, the reigning champion is looking to ride the momentum and continue his hunt for an 11th championship on Friday, Aug. 23, at Black Hills Speedway and Saturday, Aug. 24, at Big Sky Speedway.

As the North Dakota-native stated, he put a “whopping” on the field at River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, N.D. – leading 24 of the 40 laps and lapping up to ninth-place en route to his eighth victory of year. That makes him the second winningest driver of the 16 that have won, so far, this year. However, Schatz feels like he should already have several more wins.

He’s used to seasons with 20 or 30-plus wins. Schatz acknowledge it can be hard to live up to those statistics. But after a couple of years of not doing so, he said it’s started to weigh on him.

“You could say I’ve had a mental block for two and a half years,” Schatz said.

Every race he and his Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing are “digging,” he’s said. In Grand Forks they hit on something. For Schatz it wasn’t just with the car either. He felt like his mental block was finally gone.

“I feel like that’s over,” Schatz said. “I can go back to doing my job and doing what I do.”

His win also helped him reclaim the points lead over Brad Sweet – now 24 points ahead of the Kasey Kahne Racing driver. With less than 30 races to go in the Series’ schedule, there’s one main focus for Schatz; the championship. “It’s always been the focus,” he said.

The best way to achieve it is with consecutive good finishes – which he’s had, finishing outside the top-10 only four times – and wins.

Sweet won at Black Hills Speedway last year. He’ll be hungry for another win there after losing the points lead to Schatz, while he searches for his first Series championship. Schatz has won at the South Dakota speedway three time in-a-row, though. Schatz will also be looking to give his crew chief, Steve Swenson, a home state win at the track.

With NOS Energy Drink coming on board to sponsor the event and adding an additional $10,000 to the winner’s purse, there will now be $20,000 on the line, as well.

A wild card race in Schatz and Sweet’s battle for the points lead will be The Brawl at Big Sky Speedway in Billings, Mont. Neither have won at the 3/8-mile track. However, three of Sweet’s 12 wins this year have come on 3/8-mile tracks – making him the winningest driver, so far, this year on tracks that size.

Schatz has yet to win at a 3/8-mile track this year. He’s been no stranger to first time wins this year, though. He won the inaugural race at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway and won at Wilmot Raceway for the first time in his career in July.

With the mental block gone and the championship in view, Schatz is poised to repeat his River Cities performance his weekend.

NEWS AND NOTES

Three-time Formula Drift champion Chris Forsberg, who drivers the NOS Energy Drink Nissan 370Z drift car, will be signing autographs in the midway at Black Hills Speedway with his car from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. His car will also be used as the pace car for the World of Outlaws Feature.

CORY HAAS WINS RAIN SHORTENED 3RD ANNUAL ARMIN HOSTETTER MEMORIAL

HANOVER, Pa. (8/18/19): Cory Haas has felt pretty good about the overall speed and performance of his car over the last couple of weeks.         

The only thing that was missing was wins, but that changed Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway and continued Sunday at Trail-Way Speedway.           

Like Friday, Haas put himself in good position through his heat race and pulled the pole for Sunday’s A-Main. From there, he shook off a bad start and got back out front in time to claim the rain-shortened Armin Hostetter Memorial.         

Haas held a narrow lead over Danny Dietrich when the caution was displayed on Lap 24 for Joe Trone Jr. Rain hit the speedway during the caution period, and cars were sent to the pit area. Track crews tried to run in the surface, but more rain hit the speedway, and the race became official.           

“I think we’ve had speed, but we’ve just been a fifth to 10th-place car,” Haas said. “We’ve changed a few things, and I think we’ve gotten over the hump. Not saying we got a lot better, but I think we are capable of running up front. It’s just a matter of making the right choices, track position, pill draw, and things like that.           

“The last couple of weeks, I felt we were as good as anybody else, except for maybe the 48 or 51, at times. I just feel like our car is good right now, and we will just work to get better.”           

Chase Dietz got the jump on Haas from his outside-pole starting spot. Haas fell in behind, with Todd Gracey and Danny Dietrich following close behind.           

The frontrunners started to encounter lapped traffic on the eighth circuit. Dietz held a narrow lead, but Haas was starting to challenge in the corners on the bottom of the speedway and trailed by .136 seconds.           

Haas made his move on Lap 9. He muscled his way past Dietz on the bottom in Turns 1 and 2 and went to the top at the other end of the speedway to put Barry Shearer a lap down.           

“It’s a little bullring, and Chase didn’t seem like he could get off the corner,” Haas said after the $3,500 victory. “He had to stick in the center and drive off.           

“I was kind of biding my time. The start of the race, the bottom was kind of slimy, and I didn’t get a good start. Danny gets around this place really well, so I wanted to get to the lead and make my own holes.           

“I was fortunate to get around Chase there. He kind of got behind lapped cars, which happens at Trail-Way, and I made some good decisions in lapped traffic.”           

Haas opened up a 1.039-second lead by Lap 11. Meanwhile, Dietrich was starting to surge to the front. He passed Gracey on the high side of Turn 4 on Lap 12 and started to reel in Dietz.           

Up front, Haas was slicing through traffic. He led by .885 seconds on Lap 15 and increased it to 1.313 seconds three laps later.           

Dietrich worked over Dietz and took second on the outside of Turns 1 and 2 on Lap 21. He closed to within .651 seconds by the time he hit the flagstand and was within .285 seconds with 23 down.           

Haas cleared a couple of lapped cars, but his lead was wiped out when Trone Jr. spun and hit the wall in Turn 4. Rain hit the speedway during the caution, and the cars were pulled off the speedway.         

“Danny was coming at the end,” Haas said. “I just made a nice move in lapped traffic, and I thought it bought me enough time that he was going to be in trouble.           

“You never know how that is going to play out with rain coming. It took away from the fans, but it didn’t look like we were going to race on it. We were just capable of starting where we did, staying there, and coming out with a win.”           

Dietrich settled for second, with Dietz finishing third. Kyle Moody and Ryan Smith completed the top five.           

“It is what it is,” Dietrich said. “We had 23 laps, and then the rain came. That’s racing. We were just happy to have a solid weekend with top-five finishes.”           

Brett Michalski, Gracey, and Haas were heat winners for the 19-car field.

In Central Pa. Legend action, Seth Kearchner, Tim Shabram, and Chris McKinney were heat-race winners for the 28-car field. Brent Marquis won the consolation. The Legend feature will be made up at a later date.

Williams Grove To Honor Keith Kauffman With Tribute Night Race August 30

For Immediate Release

 Mechanicsburg - Williams Grove Speedway will celebrate the career of one of the track and oval’s most prolific sprint car winners coming up on Friday, August 30 when it hosts Keith Kauffman Tribute Night, sponsored by VP Racing Fuels.

Kauffman will be feted in the infield from 6 – 7 pm with a joint reunion and autograph session featuring the driver himself and several of his former car owners.

A live Facebook broadcast on BeerHill Gang TV will also take place during the hour and two Kauffman race cars will be on display as well.

Williams Grove Speedway And All Stars Sprints To Honor Legacy Of Jack Gunn Friday

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

8/18/19

Mechanicsburg – This Friday’s twin 20s for the All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprints at Williams Grove Speedway will honor late, great, promoter Jack Gunn.

The Jack Gunn Memorial twin 20-lap mains will each pay $4,000 to win with total purses for each feature worth over $20,000 each.

First run in 1983, the Gunn Memorial honors late Williams Grove promoter Jack Gunn, a native of
Hancock, Maryland.

Gunn was a Hall of Fame Promoter who heralded the speedway as promoter from 1967 until his untimely death from cancer at the age of 48 in 1980.

He began working at the track during the early 1960s as an announcer and honed his skill on the microphone while eventually relaying his talents into the oval’s captain.

It was during his tenure at the helm of Williams Grove Speedway that Gunn rose to prominence on the local and national scene and he took the facility with him.

During his career at Williams Grove, Gunn also promoted with much success at other area tracks.

Gunn’s mark on both Williams Grove and the region itself was to help raise sprint car racing to not only a weekly division but a premiere weekly headline division at that.

Gunn was feted nationally as 1979 Promoter of the Year.

While at the top of his game, he not only stood at the helm at both Williams Grove and Selinsgrove Speedways, but he was also doing the job at Hagerstown, (Maryland) and Penn National Speedways.

In his day, Jack Gunn was known as the most powerful promoter in the East.

And it is that reputation and skill that Williams Grove Speedway will honor yet again this week with the running of the All Stars Jack Gunn Memorial.

Gates will open at 5:30 pm.

Adult general admission is set at $25 with youth ages 13 – 20 admitted for just $10.  Kids ages 12 and under are always admitted for FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.

The All Stars will be led into Williams Grove by series point leader Aaron Reutzel of Clute, Texas, who has six wins under this belt on the circuit this season and the pole in the recently completed Knoxville Nationals.

Reutzel is going for his second All Stars circuit title in a row in 2019 and will meet fans in the infield at the track before the show on Friday  night from 6 - 7 pm.

Perennial series champion Dale Blaney rides second in the season point standings while upstart Californian Cory Eliason holds down the third spot in tour points.

Last year in All Stars Jack Gunn Memorial action, Freddie Rahmer and Jim Siegel scored the wins in twin 20s action, holding the All Stars scoreless at Williams Grove throughout history.

The All Stars first raced at Williams Grove in 1970 and no bonafide touring All Star has ever won an All Stars race at the oval.

The locals known as the Pennsylvania Posse hold a perfect 34-0 record of victory against the touring stars as they prepare to take on Williams Grove Speedway again. 

After the August 23 racing program, the All Stars Circuit of Champions will return to Williams Grove on Friday, September 20 to contest the make up Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial.

Mason Zeigler Captures First Career World of Outlaws Late Model Feature Win, Logan Wagner Grabs Fifth Sprint Car Win

By-Justin Snyder

PORT ROYAL, Pa- Usually when it comes to the Pennsylvania Posse vs the World of Outlaws rivalry, it’s all about Sprint Cars. However, Mason Zeigler brought home some bragging rights for the Late Models last night as the Chalk Hill, Pa native passed Ricky Weiss with three laps to go to claim his first-ever Morton Buildings World of Outlaws Late Model Series feature victory Saturday night at the Port Royal Speedway.

"We wanted to keep this one in PA tonight," said Zeigler, who won $10,000 for his efforts. "We've been working towards this for a long time and we got a lot of laps at this place, so I'm really excited to standing here."

Zeigler and Weiss, the leading rookie of the year with the Outlaws Late Models, led the field to the green with Zeigler jumping out to the early lead. It looked to be smooth sailing for Zeigler, as he was ripping around the top of the Speedway, with Weiss and fourth starting Brandon Sheppard in tow.

Zeigler first entered lap traffic on lap 11 and six laps later he got bottled up behind the lap car of Austin Hubbard and allowed Weiss to slide by on the bottom of the speedway in turn's 1 and 2.

Seven laps later Zeigler had regrouped and he pounced again. Still ripping around the top of the speedway, he used momentum exiting turn 2 to pass back by Weiss for the lead again.

"I was absolutely out of control out there and I was just trying my hardest to hit my marks," said Zeigler. "We gave him an opportunity there in lap traffic and I knew we had a car capable of getting him back."

The races only caution flew two laps later when Trevor Feathers got into the turn 3 outside guardrail and came to a slow on the inside of turn 4.

On the restart, it was Weiss striking back as he dove to the bottom of Zeigler in turn 1 and 2, pulling even with him as the powered down the backstretch. Zeigler would diamond turn 3 and 4 and pull back under Weiss to hold the lead on lap 29. However, Weiss used the momentum to slide back under Zeigler and regained the lead with 10-to go.

Over the next seven laps, Zeigler was sizing up Weiss, who also was looking for his first career Outlaws Late Model victory. With 3 to go, Zeigler pulled to the back bumper  of Weiss coming to the flag stand. Zeigler tried a slidejob attempt in turns 1 and 2, only for Weiss to pull back ahead on the bottom of the backstretch.

But this allowed Zeigler to hit the high line in turn's 3 and 4. With Weiss rolling through the middle, Zeigler pulled ahead exiting turn 4 for good to take the lead for what would ultimately be the winning pass.

Zeigler would go on to take the checkered flag by 1.429 seconds for his second overall River Valley Builders Super Late Model triumph of 2019 at the Juniata County oval over Weiss, Sheppard, Shane Clanton and Rick Eckert

Gregg Satterlee, Chase Junghans, Dennis Erb Jr., Jason Covert and Darrell Lanigan rounded out the top 10.

"I knew he would have to be really good to get me and I knew if I just hit my marks we’d get him back," said Zeigler. "I was too good on the top and I wasn't about to let this one get away from us."

For Weiss, he was happy to continue what has been an excellent season, but was  ultimately disappointed that he didn't get his elusive first win.

"I thought if I got out front I could run the top, but I just wasn't very good up there," said Weiss. "He was able to run us back down and ultimately he was just the better car tonight."

Sprint Cars

Logan Wagner led all 25-laps to capture his 5th overall Weikert's Livestock410 Sprint Car victory of 2019 at the Port Royal Speedway.

"I'm soo thankful to be with a team like this and have people who support me and make all this happen." said Wagner. "The car was excellent as it has been all year and I'm just happy to be in this position."

As a result of earning the most points after dual 6-lap heats, Wagner started on the pole with Dustin Baney on the outside front row. Wagner quickly jumped out the early lead over fourth starting AJ Flick and fifth starting Ryan Taylor.

The races only caution would fly on lap 4 as Tyler Bear got sideways in turn 3 and collected TJ Stutts as well. Both cars would be able to re-join the field.

When green flag racing resumed, it was Wagner again jumping out to a sizeable lead. Taylor, using the bottom of turn's 1 and 2 to slide past Flick, set his sights on Wagner as he moved into the second spot.

Wagner would enter lap traffic on lap 10. Before that, Wagner had been trying multiple lines of the speedway, with Taylor catching him and getting to his tail tank on several laps. With a .347 lead at the halfway mark, Wagner knew it was time to make his move.

"I was moving around trying to see where the car was working," said Wagner. "Once I saw Ryan show his nose, I knew it was time to go. I went back up top and just tried to hold on."

With Flick, Dylan Cisney and Jared Esh putting on an exciting battle for the third position behind them, Wagner began to stretch his lead again over the final laps. Ultimately, he would cross the checkered flag by a margin of 1.434 second lead over Taylor, Flick, Esh and Cisney.

 Danny Varin, Tyler Reeser, Dan Shetler, Kyle Smith and Stutts completed the top 10.

"I just can’t say enough about this team and my crew," said Wagner, who expanded his series points lead to 400 points. "Even when we are not at our best, I feel like we can win races. Tonight showed that and we earned this one."

For Taylor, he was looking for his first win since the beginning of the season but was happy with the improvement his team continues to show.

"We found some stuff during the Dream Race and we been working at duplicating that and just being more consistent," said Taylor. "We held our own with Logan and not too many people have been able to do that with them this year. I just got to get better in lap traffic if I want to complete the deal. But I'm happy."

Aaron Reutzel scores seventh All Star victory of 2019 with wire-to-wire performance at Plymouth

PLYMOUTH, Ind. (August 18, 2019) - After a frustrating outing one night prior that ultimately resulted in a ‘DNF’ finish, Clute, Texas’ Aaron Reutzel redeemed himself completely during his Saturday night stay at Plymouth Speedway in Plymouth, Indiana, and secured his seventh Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory of the 2019 season; his first since Utica-Rome Speedway in mid-July.

A convincing victory to say the least, Reutzel led every lap of the 30-lap program at the Plymouth short track, utilizing patience to maneuver through periods of heavy lapped traffic all while holding off a fast closing Brock Zearfoss, as well as an eighth starting Greg Wilson. The $5,000 triumph also allowed Reutzel to chop into Dale Blaney’s championship points lead, cutting the advantage down to ten markers. Blaney entered the evening with a 26-point advantage, all of which built from Reutzel’s ‘DNF’ result at I-96 Speedway.

“Top, bottom, middle; we were comfortable all over tonight. That’s something we have been working really hard on,” Aaron Reutzel said in Plymouth Speedway victory lane, driver of the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports/Folkens Brothers Trucking/Fischer Body Shop/Dissolvalloy/No. 87 sprint car. “It was one hell of a team effort tonight. I’m just thankful that my group of guys have stuck behind me.”

Although the Texan was able to control every circuit of the 30-lap main event, Reutzel was never completely on his own. In fact, a blanket could have been thrown over the top four during the midpoint of the main event, a pattern that continued for nearly five circuits. Reutzel eventually escaped into traffic, but Zearfoss, who drove into second from fourth with a bold move through turns one and two on lap nine, remained persistent.

The final four circuits saw the battle between Reutzel and Zearfoss intensify yet again. With slower cars bunching up two and three wide ahead of the leader, Reutzel was forced to check up which allowed Zearfoss to close the gap to a car length by the two-to-go signal.

Solidifying his place on top of the podium, Reutzel perfected a slider through turns one and two to place a slower car between himself and Zearfoss on the final lap. The move worked, allowing Reutzel to cruise home ahead of Zearfoss, Greg Wilson, Gerard McIntryre, and Justin Peck.

“I felt like I was ok through the first set of lapped cars, then I got to a group that I absolutely did not want to have to lap. I was actually praying for a caution so I didn’t have to work around them,” Aaron Reutzel continued. “I was a little timid in traffic tonight, for sure. I didn’t want to get knocked out.”

The All Star Circuit of Champions will continue their 2019 campaign with a four-pack in the Keystone State; four events in four days across much of Posse Country. The four-day invasion of Central Pennsylvania will ignite on Thursday evening, August 22, at the always-racey Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville, Pennsylvania. Action will move to the historic Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg on Friday, August 23, followed by a visit to the ‘Fabulous’ Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown on Saturday, August 24. The weekend will conclude on Sunday, August 25, at BAPS Motor Speedway near York Haven.

The events at Grandview Speedway, Lincoln Speedway and BAPS Motor Speedway will each award $5,000 top prizes. The format at Williams Grove Speedway will feature twin main events, each awarding $4,000 paydays.

In addition, MAVTV Motorsports Network, the official television home of the All Star Circuit of Champions in 2019, will be on hand to capture action from Grandview, Williams Grove and Lincoln. All three programs will be broadcast via tape-delay on October 13, October 20 and October 27, respectively.

SMITH STORMS TO FIRST SELINSGROVE SPRINT CAR WIN OF SEASON; MILLER TAKES FIRST LIMITED LATE MODEL VICTORY; MOSER SCORES THIRD STRAIGHT PRO STOCK WIN; MITCH WINS THRILLING ROADRUNNER 20 CHAMPIONSHIP RACE

SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- Mark Smith of Sunbury returned from the NASCAR Truck Series wars to win his first Selinsgrove Speedway sprint car race of the season Saturday night.

The $2,000 win in the 25-lap feature was Smith’s 27th career in 358-360 sprint car racing at the speedway behind the wheel of the Mach 1 Chassis No. 1M.

Troy Miller of Tower City won his first career limited late model race at Selinsgrove in the division’s 20-lap main event after winning 21 pro stock events and one super late model race at the track in the past.

Brandon Moser of Middleburg scored his third straight and sixth of the year in the 12-lap pro stock race, while Brad Mitch of McClure won his second career Roadrunner 20 after a spirited three car battle.

Selinsgrove Speedway will present Foss Jewelers Championship Night at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 24, featuring the final points races of the season for the 360 sprint cars, super late models in the Grit House Route 35 Challenge Series, pro stocks, and roadrunners. Track gates will open at 5 p.m.

Colby Womer and Mark Smith blasted to the front of the sprint car feature with Smith nosing in front for the lead.  The pair was followed by Mike Walter, Jason Shultz, and Derek Locke.

Smith, who just a few weeks ago competed in the nationally televised NASCAR Truck Series race at Eldora Speedway in Ohio, soon opened a huge lead.

Derek Locke, who has been fast all season, showed some speed and drove to the third spot and immediately challenged Womer for the runner up spot.

Smith went on to wire the field and win the 25-lap grind by three quarters of a lap over Womer, Locke, Kyle Reinhardt and Walter.

“This is an all new car,” Smith said.  “We just finished up this afternoon. That’s why we got here late. It’s next year’s car, so we are going to park it and go back to the old car.”

Sprint car heats were won by Smith and Shultz.

Troy Miller shot to the lead in the limited late model race followed by his son Shaun, Jared Fulkroad, Tim Krape, and Tommy Slanker.

By the halfway mark, T. Miller, who had previously won four pro stock track championships, had built a comfortable lead over S. Miller.

T. Miller ran the rest of the distance unchallenged followed by S. Miller, Fulkroad, Slanker, and Mike Smith.

“The kid said, ‘you can’t run as good as you’ve been and not win one,’” Miller said referring to his son who won the last time the limited late models raced at Selinsgrove.  “I knew Shaun was behind me, I could see it on the scoreboard but I didn’t know how close he was so I kept going.”

Limited late model heats went to T. Miller and Smith.

Brandon Moser rocketed to the front of the pro stock feature followed by Kyle Bachman, Corey Long, Shaun Lawton, and John Schoch.

Kruz Kepner slammed the third turn fence bringing out a lap two caution.

Moser ran to the finish winning his third in a row and sixth overall over Bachman, Long, Lawton, and Schoch.

Moser won the pro stock heat.

Keith Bissinger grabbed the early roadrunner lead followed by Will Brunson, Brad Mitch, Curtis Lawton, and Terry Kramer.

Bissinger was able to maintain a slight lead as Brunson and Mitch battled side by side for second.  With Bissinger running high, Brunson ducked underneath coming off the fourth turn on lap six for the lead. The caution flag flew on the following lap for Jim Collier.

Lap nine saw Brunson drift high in the second turn.  Bissinger and Mitch got by him but in the third turn Brunson ducked under the pair to regain the lead.

On a restart on the following lap Brunson and Bissinger traded slide jobs.  Brunson maintained the lead while Mitch took over second from Bissinger.

Lap 12 saw another yellow as Lawton slowed on the track. 

Brunson and Mitch had the fans on the edge of their seats racing side by side and exchanging slide jobs with Bissinger right behind.  Lap 17 was disastrous for Brunson who lost a wheel and handed the lead to Mitch. 

Brunson’s crew work feverishly and replaced the wheel returning Brunson to the race.

Mitch led the final three laps for the win over Bissinger, Dustin Snook, Bob Bussey, and Terry Kramer.

Snook and Mitch were victorious in the roadrunner heats.
