Abbottstown, PA (June 29, 2019) – Chad Trout drew the pole for Saturday night’s 30-lap feature. Despite the excellent starting spot, it wasn’t easy sailing into victory lane for Trout’s second career 410 win.

Trout started on the pole with Australian, Darren Mollenoyux on the outside of row 1 at Lincoln Speedway on Saturday night for the Kevin Gobrecht Memorial. Brian Montieth lined up third with Danny Dietrich, who swept both Speedweek races at Lincoln in 2018, starting fourth.

Mollenoyux took the lead when the green flag dropped with Trout running second and Montieth running third. Friday night’s winner Lance Dewease got up to fifth from his seventh starting spot. Dietrich moved into third on lap two after getting under Montieth in turns 1 and 2.

The leaders caught lapped traffic on lap 7. Trout nearly beat Mollenoyux to the line for the lead on lap 8. Trout took the lead on lap 9 coming out of turn 4. The top five were running under a blanket with Mollenoyux challenging Trout to take the lead back. Mollenoyux got Trout back at the line on lap 14 for the lead. Trout passed him back the next lap with Dewease, Montieth, Ryan Smith and Dietrich battling for third.

Smith was coming on fast when the yellow came out on lap 16 for Landon Myers who slowed on the track.

Trout got a good jump on the restart with Montieth going to the bottom to try for second. Smith got around Dewease in turns 1 and 2 for fifth.

Montieth was coming on strong and tried a slider lap 22 in turns 1 and 2 and nearly took himself and Trout out. Montieth was all over Trout as they approached lapped traffic on lap 23.

Montieth got Trout going down the backstretch on lap 24 for the lead and Dietrich followed. The caution came out on lap 25 for Dewease who ended up facing the wrong way on the front stretch with a right front flat tire.

Montieth led Dietrich, Trout, Mollenoyux and Smith to the cone for the restart with five laps to go.

Montieth was battling engine issues and was only firing seven cylinders for much of the race and Dietrich hunted him down. Dietrich tried to take the lead in turns 3 and 4 on lap 27 and took out Montieth and himself. The red flag came out for Montieth who took a wild ride in turn 4 as a result of the contact with Dietrich.

Trout inherited the lead and held on to the spot for the final three laps to win his second career 410 race and the $7,000 check. Mollenoyux crossed the line second. Smith finished third. Freddie Rahmer finished fourth and Cory Haas finished fifth after starting sixteenth.

Heat winners were TJ Stutts, Darren Mollenoyux, Adam Wilt and Danny Dietrich. Steve Buckwalter won the B-main.

Jeremy Ott Charges to Legends Victory

Travis McClelland started on the pole of the 20-lap feature with Zach Smith sharing the front row. McClelland took the lead when the green flag dropped as Brian Racine challenged Smith for second. Racine took second as Smith got shuffled back to fourth.

With McClelland out front the battle behind him for position was heated as positions four through ten were running under a blanket. Jeremy Ott was running in the top five from his eleventh starting spot after only five laps.

The caution came out on lap 6 for Brian Racine who got spun around in turn 2 while running third.

McClelland led Mason Chaney, Alex Robinson, Harlon Leppo and Ott to the cone for the restart. Chaney was on McClelland’s bumper on the restart with McClelland holding onto the lead.

The caution came out again on lap 9 as Chaney lost a fender and made contact with the leader, McClelland, in turn 4.

Chaney led the field to the cone for the restart and spun out in turn 2 bringing out another caution.

Robinson inherited the lead with Leppo, Bill Diehl, Ott and Chris Transeau in line behind him.

Leppo challenged Robinson for the lead on the restart with Robinson holding onto the position. Leppo, Diehl and Ott made it a three-way battle for second with Ott taking the spot-on lap 11.

Ott chased down Robinson to battle for the lead with Diehl in tow. Ott ran wheel to wheel with Robinson in turns 3 and 4 on lap 16 taking the lead at the line on lap 17.

Robinson got spun around in turns 3 and 4 on the next lap bringing out the caution.

Ott led the field to the cone for the restart with three laps remaining. Diehl was on Ott’s bumper, challenging him for the lead. Diehl tried the top of turns 1 and 2 but couldn’t get a run to make the pass. Ott held onto win with Diehl crossing the line second. Leppo finished third. Aaron Updegraff was fourth and Transeau completed the top five.

Saturday night’s win was Ott’s second Legend’s win in a row at Lincoln.

Legends heat winners were Mason Chaney, Jeremy Ott, Bill Diehl and Brian Racine. Travis Perry won the B-main.

41K CHAMPION: Brad Sweet wins 2019 Jackson Nationals By holding off 10-time Series champion Donny Schatz to win at Jackson Motorplex, Brad Sweet pockets $41,000 payday

The “Big Cat” Brad Sweet was starving for the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series win at Jackson Motorplex Saturday night.

He’s tasted victory six times already this season – including a win Thursday night at Jackson Motorplex – but with $41,000 and the title of Jackson Nationals champion on the line, his appetite wouldn’t be appeased until the night’s entrĂ©e was his.

He had to battle through cautions, lap traffic, smoking tires and an equally as hungry Donny Schatz, but at the end of the 35-lap Feature, Sweet drove his NAPA Auto Parts No. 49 car to Victory Lane for the seventh time this year, claiming the 41st Annual AGCO Jackson Nationals.

“Forty-one thousand, that’s awesome,” Sweet said. “These big money races are hard to win.”

After winning opening night of the Jackson Nationals, Thursday, and finishing fifth Friday night, his total combined points locked him into the pole position for Saturday night’s DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash. He dominated the field in the Dash, pulling away to a 3.5 second lead over second-place Daryn Pittman by the end.

Sweet had the plate of $41,000 in his hands and was ready to walk away with it. But when the Feature went green, he found himself having to brawl for it.

Pittman charged around the outside of Sweet through turns one and two to take the lead. The next time around, Sweet dove underneath Pittman in turn one, putting the two side-by-side at the exit of turn two. Neither were going to lift. But to avoid sliding up into Pittman, Sweet had to jerk his car sideways and allowed the Roth Enterprises No. 83 car to pull away.

Pittman held command of the lead for the next 11 laps before there was contact between he and the lap car of Austin McCarl, which sent McCarl rolling into turn one.

When the race went back green after the red flag, Sweet got the jump on Pittman, clearing him for the lead before they got back to the flag stand. Into turn one, Sweet moved to the top of the track, blocking Pittman’s line. The Grass Valley, Calif-native then pulled away to about a four-car-length lead exiting turn two.

Pittman’s fortunes continued to decline with Schatz working his way by the Oklahoma-native and dropping him to third – where he would remain for the rest of the Feature.

“I keep finding ways to lose races,” said Pittman, whose third-place finish was his seventh top-five in-a-row. “Getting frustrating, but my Roth Motorsports guys keep working really hard. They’re doing a great job.”

Leaving Pittman in third, Schatz began his hunt of Sweet. With just three wins this season, so far, and his last win coming nine races ago, the 10-time Series champion was as hungry as Sweet to return to Victory Lane.

Sweet lost grip exiting turn two on the slick track while trying to pass a lap car, with 11 laps to go. That allowed Schatz to close on Sweet and dive underneath him in turn three. The two were side-by-side exiting turn four with Sweet smoking his tires on the rubbered down groove of the track and Schatz fighting to keep his car straight.

“It didn’t surprise me one bit when the fifteen (car) was sneaking under me,” said Sweet, who has battled Schatz for the points lead all season long. “He’s got me chasing my tail a little bit.”

After Schatz’s attempt at passing the Kasey Kahne Racing car, Sweet got into a rhythm. He found his line and rode it for the remaining 10 laps to claim his 41st career Series win during the 41st Annual Jackson Nationals with a $41,000 payday.

“Once I got in clean track, I knew just to run right in the rubber and I didn’t want to allow any runs to happen,” Sweet said. “It was just one of those things where we were just good enough to get the win tonight. It wasn’t pretty I don’t think, but that’s why you set yourself up all weekend to get in the right position and we were in the right position and we were able to get the win.”

Schatz’s second-place finish was a rebound from Friday when he blew a motor while leading the Dash and ended up eighth in the Feature.

“Hats off to these (Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing) guys,” Schatz said. “They’re digging. They’ve got an awesome race car. The driver’s got to step up to the plate a little bit, start swinging a bigger bat. We’ll work on that.”

Sweet has now won five of the last seven races. That’s resulted in him extending his championship lead to 72-points over Schatz.

“We’ve had a good little run here,” Sweet said. “It’s been a lot of fun.”

While the “Big Cat’s” winning appetite was appeased Saturday night, hunger is sure to return next week.


The World of Outlaws on Wednesday, July 3, will return to Brown County Speedway in Aberdeen, S.D. for the Star Spangled Showdown.

Aaron Reutzel rallies from ninth to win Bill Waite, Jr. Memorial Classic at Route 66

JOLIET, Ill. (June 29, 2019) - Powered by perseverance, as well as a healthy serving of determination, Clute, Texas’ Aaron Reutzel did what some would consider the impossible on Saturday night during his visit to the Dirt Oval at Route 66 in Joliet, Ill., ultimately concluding his evening with an impressive charge from the inside of row five, all after rebuilding a destroyed race car as the result of a flip during his respective Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1/IRA Outlaw Sprint Series dash.

With the help of an array of sprint car teams scattered throughout the pit area, Aaron Reutzel and the familiar Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports, No. 87 entry made the main event call, eventually leading over half of the 30-lap program to score the $5,000 payday. The victory not only bumped Retuzel’s 2019 All Star Circuit of Champions win total to four, leading all competitors this season, but the win also bumped Reutzel back on top of the All Star driver championship standings, now with a two point lead over 2019 Ohio Sprint Speedweek champion, Hartford, Ohio’s Dale Blaney.

Incidentally, Dale Blaney finished second on Saturday night at Route 66, followed by Paul McMahan, Cory Eliason, and multi-time IRA champion, Bill Balog.

“What an effort by this team. I really can’t say enough about these guys. We weren’t sure what to do, but we ended up fixing the car that we flipped. Actually, if it wasn’t for everyone else jumping in to help us, I’m not sure we would have been able to get back out there without having to go to a back-up car. Being able to start ninth rather than 24th made all the difference,” Aaron Reutzel said, driver of the Folkens Brothers Trucking/Nattress Construction/Hollywood Coating & Blasting/No. 87 sprint car. “A big thanks to the entire Rudeen Racing team, Brian and Stacy Kemenah, Paul McMahan, Mike McGhee and his guys, Thomas Meseraull; they all helped us get things back together. What a group of guys out here traveling with the All Stars this year. They all jump in and help each other.”

Kyle Larson, who started from the pole position on Saturday night before leading the first 13 circuits, was eventually disqualified during a red flag break on lap 14. A work area violation forced the disqualification, as one of Larson’s crew members left the designated work area to speak with Larson under caution.

Regardless of Larson’s speed and eventual disqualification, Reutzel was a sure-fire favorite, as the defending All Star champion climbed ahead from ninth to fifth in just four circuits. By lap seven, Reutzel was third, charging his way around Paul Nienhiser and Parker Price-Miller as the trio battled in traffic.

A caution on lap 13 allowed Reutzel the opportunity to drive by Paul McMahan for second. Although the opportunity prevailed, action was soon halted yet again, this time for a red flag incident on lap 14. Larson’s aforementioned disqualification occurred at that time.

Although two additional red flag incidents would halt action on lap 22, and again on lap 30 - setting up a green-white-checkered finish - it was all Reutzel, pulling away every time to a commanding advantage.

“I felt like I was catching Kyle [Larson]. I’m not sure what kind of a pace he was keeping because I know when I got the lead, I slowed my pace down,” Aaron Reutzel continued. “I think I was just as good as Kyle was during that first half. I know we are tired of getting beat by him, and he doesn’t like to lose races. I’m sure it would have been a great race with us two up front.”

With the month of June officially in the books, Tony Stewart’s All Star Circuit of Champions will now prepare for an action-packed month of July, kicking things off with an Independence Day weekend doubleheader on Friday and Saturday, July 5 & 6. The holiday weekend will commence on Friday evening, July 5, at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pennsylvania. Originally slated for early May, the Lernerville visit was eventually canceled with only engine heat being completed. An early evening storm, which doused the entire facility, forced the eventual cancellation.

Action will move to Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio, on Saturday, July 6. Honoring 2013 National Sprint Car Hall of Fame inductee, Lou Blaney, the coveted Lou Blaney Memorial will be on tap at the northeast Ohio venue, awarding a top prize equalling $6,000.

Stuart Brubaker / Randy Hannigan / and Jamie Miller win sprint car features at Fremont Speedway

Saturday, June 29, 2019
Contact: Brian Liskai

By Brian Liskai

FREMONT, Oh. - Switching a car or getting one "fixed" often times is just what the doctor ordered for a sprint car driver. Such was the case Saturday at Fremont Speedway on Willie's Sales & Service Open Wheel Shootout Night. Helena, Ohio's Stuart Brubaker switched chassis - back to an old car of his - Fremont, Ohio's Jamie Miller got his car repaired and Pittsboro, Indiana's Randy Hannagan brought a new car out and all three ended up in victory lane at "The Track That Action Built."

Brubaker, who won the 410 sprint title at Attica Raceway Park last year, had been struggling in 2019. But, he got an old chassis back from a former car owner and it paid off as he held off a charging Cap Henry for his first win of 2019 in the Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprints. It was Brubaker's seventh career win at Fremont Speedway, but his first in a 410 sprint car, the rest coming on board a 305 sprint.

Just as important as the win, Brubaker remains in the hunt for the $10,000 title in the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series (AFCS) Presented by the Baumann Auto Group.

"We've struggled all year...we've been horrible all year. We switched cars this week and went back to a Maxim. I have to thank the's actually one of my old cars I used to run. I have to thank everybody who helps, Ron, Teresa, mom, dad and Brendan who busted his ass this week to get this car together. I have to thank my sponsors, Dave Story Equipment, Gary Holland Trucking, Gressman Power Sports, Handy Grafix, KS Sales and Service, Speedway Bar and Grill, G&L Oil and the Juice Garden," said Brubaker in the Engine Pro Victory lane.

"It's been hard to keep everyone positive...I think a few of us wanted to quit. Our cars just sucked. I got this and they rolled their eyes and stuck with me and put it together and here we are on the front stretch," he added.

For Hannagan a new car and paint scheme reinvigorated the veteran driver as he scored his second career win at Fremont; the first coming last year at the track.

"I have to thank Tyson and Dennis and Fritz and my son Mason and everybody that works on this thing. We've had second and second and second and we blew a motor and crashed the car; I spun out in front of the whole field at I-96 and took half of them out and I felt terrible. I usually don't do stuff like that. We had to put a new car together and we're just getting it underneath us and it's coming around. That's the best this car has felt since I've sat in it and I think we have a good rocket ship...we're back to the red rocket. That black car was possessed or something. This type of track makes you drive a race car. By today's standards and the way sprint cars with technology you have to have a slick race car so you can race...put the driver back into it. We got on something good tonight," said Hannagan beside his Dennis Yoakum Motorsports/Starke County Co-Op/McDallion/Refinish Systems/SMRS/Kenny's Components backed machine.

Miller, coming off the best season of his career, has struggled to begin 2019. So the team took the car apart, took the chassis to Tony Beaber in Gibsonburg, Ohio who operates a chassis repair shop, and Miller promptly put the car in victory lane in the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprints. It's Miller's 21st career win at Fremont placing him 29th on the track's all-time win list.

"This win is due to Tony Beaber. He did an amazing job and it feels like we have our old race car it did last year. I'm hoping you will see me a lot more up here. It was bent in the back and the front was twisted up. We had a pretty bad wreck that last race at Attica last year and it pushed things around and we were struggling with it. It feels pretty good tonight. When you can move around and still pass cars on the slick and get around lapped cars...I could go pretty much any where and had good drive and didn't spin the tires," said Miller beside his Pen's Barbecue/Napa of Attica/Avon by Angie/Griff's Engines/Color Street by Jaime Hennig/Reedtown Tavern/Fostoria Mod Shop/York Carpet Outlet/Crown Battery/Branham Builders/Imprint Logo/Phil Rister Racing backed machine.

The 30 lap 410 sprint feature was paced by Brubaker and Henry and the duo immediately raced side by side for the lead at the drop of the green with Brian Lay, DJ Foos, Lee Jacobs and Hunter Schuerenberg giving chase. With three laps scored Schuerenberg and Cale Conley would spin and the race would not see another stoppage until there were to laps to go.

When the green reappeared Brubaker, Henry and Foos were locked in a tremendous battle while Jacobs tried to close as AFCS point leader Buddy Kofoid began to move toward the front as well. Foos took second on lap five and stayed within a couple of car lengths of Brubaker as Henry ran comfortably in third while Jacobs and Kofoid battled for fourth.

At the half-way point it was a fantastic three car battle for the lead between Brubaker, Foos and Henry. Five laps later Jacobs and Kofoid joined the fun. Henry was able to retake second on lap 22 but Foos returned the favor a lap later all while pressuring Brubaker. With five laps to go Brubaker was playing defense to hold off Henry and Brubaker while Jacobs, Kofoid and Nate Dussel stayed close.

While battling for the lead with three laps to go, Henry and Foos made contact with Foos spinning for the second caution of the feature. A lap after the restart and Brian Smith had trouble on the front stretch bringing out another caution and setting up a two lap shoot-out. Brubaker was able to hold off Henry for the win with Jacobs, Kofoid and Dussel rounding out the top five.

Jake Brown and Shawn Dancer brought the field to green for the 25 lap NRA feature with Dancer gaining the advantage over Brown, Devin Dobie and Hannagan. Hannagan was on a mission and took second on lap three. Justin Adams stopped to bring out the caution on lap nine which put Hannagan right on Dancer's rear bumper. Hannagan was able to drive into the lead on lap 11 but Dancer didn't give up and raced to his inside for several laps while Brown, Dobie and Chase Dunham waged a war for third.

With 10 laps to go Hannagan had pulled away from Dancer while Brown, Dunham and Dobie continued to swap the third spot lap after lap. Todd Heuerman would bring out the second and final caution of the feature on lap 16 which gave the field one final shot at Hannagan. When the green flew so did "the Hurricane" as he drove away for the win over Dancer, Dunham, Dobie and Brown.

Larry Kingseed Jr. and Shawn Valenti brought the field to green for the 25 lap 305 feature but Kingseed would flip on the start ending the night for the rookie driver. It was the only stoppage of the feature.

On the next restart Bobby Clark bolted into the lead over Valenti, Miller, Paul Weaver, Brandon Moore, John Ivy, Tyler Street and Kyle Capodice. Miller moved into second on lap three and stalked Clark until driving into the lead as they raced into lapped traffic on the ninth circuit. Meanwhile Weaver had moved into third while Valenti held off Ivy. Miller steadily pulled away and made great moves in lapped traffic.

Clark stayed within five car lengths but could never catch Miller at the right opportunity. Miller drove to the win over Clark, Weaver, Ivy and Valenti.

Fremont Speedway will be back in action Saturday, July 6 on Crown Battery Sponsor Challenge Night with the AFCS 410 and 305 sprints and dirt trucks in action.

Matt Covington Masters The Fred Brownfield Classic With The Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series

Photo courtesy of ASCS
Bryan Hulbert – ELMA, Wash. (June 29, 2019) A preliminary night winner in 2017, Oklahoma’s Matt Covington added the Fred Brownfield Classic championship night to his list of accomplishments on Saturday night with his first A-Feature victory of the year with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.

Covington’s ninth career victory with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, the win as a much-needed one for the team who saw Dirt Cup ripped from their hands one week ago.

“We needed this. Man, we needed this win. I thought we had Dirt Cup in the bag and had a Rod Bolt let go. Nothing on our engine builder, I tried to take old parts and make them last too long. Mark at Shark Racing Engines definitely stepped our program up,” stated Covington, who is the season’s 10th different winner.

Winning the race for the lead into the first two turns, Covington set a quick pace around the Grays Harbor Raceway with Colton Heath in tow. Caution working Lap 7 for Jay Cole who rolled to a stop entering the first turn, Heath tried for the lead on the restart but was denied as Reece Goetz and Jason Solwold set their sights on the Triple X Race Co. No. 33. Grabbing the runner-up spot on Lap 8, the run for Goetz was short lived as Solwold slid both drivers to move from fourth to second off the fourth turn on Lap 9.

Allowing Covington to open a sizable advantage, the Scottie Plumbing No. 18 began searching around the track. Finding a line just off the cushion of the Grays Harbor Raceway, Solwold began picking away at Covington’s lead. Moving the gap to 0.855 seconds in clean air, traffic loomed for the leaders, but the caution would come out instead as Chris Bullock looped his No. 17c in the second turn; directly in the path of the leaders. Everyone was able to avoid.

Diving low in the Lap 12 restart, Solwold pulled even for the race lead as the pair hit the back straightaway. Diving to the bottom the close the door on Solwold’s run, Covington forced the No. 18 out of the throttle. Letting the car drift off the bottom through the fourth turn, the T&L Foundry No. 95 was again pressured. Rushing the bottom again into the first turn, this time Covington stuck the hub to protect the race lead.

On the challenge for the lead, Matt explained, “He showed by a nose and I had to chop him hard. It was for the win, and I knew I wasn’t going to get another chance if he got the run. It was fun and I’m glad we came out on top. We’ve got a couple wins this year, but the National Tour has tough to get. I’ve run second a lot, and flat gave a few away and I was determined not to let that happen here.”

Working back into slower traffic in the closing laps, Covington’s pace was nearly unchanged as he crossed under the checkered flag 3.849 seconds ahead of Jason Solwold. Running out of laps to contend for the runner-up spot, Scott Bogucki picked up his fourth podium finish of the season in the No. 28. The night’s Hard Charger from 14th to fourth, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. reclaimed the point’s lead by 44 markers with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network. Washington’s Austen Wheatley ended up fifth after racing as high as third during the race’s mid-point.

Colton Heath slipped to sixth with Reece Goetz to seventh after racing for second early on. Robbie Price picked up eight positions to eighth with Roger Crockett rebounding from a Friday DNF to a ninth-place finish. New Zealand’s Brayton Davison completed the top ten.

A total of 35 drivers took part in the Fred Brownfield Classic weekend with 31 making the call on Saturday night. A four pack of SCE Gaskets Heat Races went to Austen Wheatley, Seth Bergman, Colton Heath, and Matt Covington. The BMRS B-Feature was won by Cam Smith. One Provisional was used by Blake Hahn.

With the Independence Day Weekend off, the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network goes green again at the NAPA of Montana Grizzly Nationals at Gallatin Speedway in Belgrade, Mont. on Friday, July 12 and Saturday, July 13. The race where it takes more guts to stand in Victory Lane than it did to win, the winners will stand with a nine-foot-tall Grizzly Bear named Adam. Information on the track is online at

Dewease Opens Speedweek With Williams Grove Win, Hammaker Makes It Two In A Row In 358s

Mechanicsburg – Lance Dewease pocketed his 96th career sprint car win at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night with a flag to flag performance in the Pennsylvania Speedweek opener, worth $5,000.

The Fayetteville driver took the victory by a 7.571 second margin over Brian Montieth in what was a nonstop event.  The win was the 27th Dewease’s career in speedweek action.

In the 358 sprint car main, Doug Hammaker drove by Kevin Nouse to get his second win of the year at the track in as many weeks.

Dewease took the lead from the pole of the 25-lap 410 sprint car main with TJ Stutts giving chase.

Fifth starter Brian Montieth was up to third by lap seven and the leaders entered the rear of the field on the eighth tour with Dewease holding a half straightaway lead.

Dewease had a 2.5 second advantage at the halfway point as Montieth began to battle with Stutts for second.

The pair swapped the spot twice with 10 laps to go before Montieth finally took the spot for keeps.

Seventh starter Freddie Rahmer continued his advancement forward on lap 17 by taking third from Stutts but only after the two made contact on the frontstretch.

By lap 20 Dewease had a commanding straightaway lead that was growing with every lap and he would continue to stretch his advantage all the way to the finish.

Dewease had lapped up to the 12th spot before the checkers unfurled.

He and his crew replaced the rear end in the car between his heat race and the main event.

Montieth was second in the race followed by Rahmer, Lucas Wolfe and Stutts.

Sixth through 10th went to Danny Dietrich, Anthony Macri, Robbie Kendall, Cory Haas and Kyle Reinhardt.

Heats went to Stutts, Dietrich, Chase Dietz and Kendall with the consolation going to Adrian Shaffer.

Dewease set quick time over the 32-car field with a lap of 16.840 seconds.

Scott Fisher took the lead at the start of the 20-lap 358 sprint main while seventh starter Doug Hammaker drove into fourth.

Kevin Nouse  battled with Fisher for the top spot on only the first lap before getting control with two away while finding Hammaker now up to third.

Nouse worked the top of the track while Hammaker used the bottom groove and steadily drove down Nouse’s advantage.

Hammker worked the inside lane in the first and second turns to drive into control on lap 10 and begin pulling away in traffic.

However the red flag unfurled with five laps to go for a nasty frontstretch flip by Rodney Westhafer, regrouping the field.

Nouse took a shot on the restart and again on another restart with four laps to go but both times Hammaker pulled away with control.

It was the Grantville driver’s eighth career limited sprint car win at the track.

Nouse was second followed by Chris Frank, Scott Fisher and Gregg Foster.

Heats went to Fisher and Nouse.

Rookie Carson Macedo holds off veterans Logan Schuchart and Daryn Pittman for third career win

You couldn’t see it, but Carson Macedo was standing up in the seat of his Kyle Larson Racing No. 2 car for all 30 laps of the Feature at Jackson Motorplex Friday night.

 Or at least, that’s how it felt to the rookie driver after holding off veterans Daryn Pittman and Logan Schuchart to claim his third World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series race.

 “I knew I needed to stand up in the seat and make it happen,” Macedo said. “These Outlaw races are hard to win and you don’t get those opportunities that often to be up front and be there to capitalize on a win.”

 The record book will officially show Macedo led all 30 laps. However, the sweat drenching down his forehead and the lack of breath in his speech know better.

 Macedo started on the pole of the Feature, by virtue of winning the DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash after Dash leader Donny Schatz blew a motor. When the green flag hit the air, Macedo and Pittman drag raced side by side down the front stretch. Macedo launched his car under Pittman into turn one, sliding ahead within inches of his bumper.

 Macedo then sped away, leaving about a three-car gap between he and Pittman.

 By Lap seven, Macedo’s pace put him in lap traffic. Behind him, Pittman and Schuchart wrestled for second-place. Schuchart tried to slide in front of Pittman off turn two, but carried too much speed and exited the corner sideways, allowing Pittman to dart back by.

 The top three remained unchanged for the next five laps with Macedo cautiously navigating his way through lap traffic. Within those five laps, Pittman closed to about a car length distance from Macedo, while Schuchart stocked them both. The veterans were ready to steal the rookie’s win.

 With 15 laps to go, Schuchart powered his Drydene No. 1s around the outside of Pittman in turn one. Then next lap, he attempted a slide job underneath Macedo in turn one, but the Chevrolet Accessories No. 2 car had a strong enough run on the outside to get beside Schuchart before he could slide up in front of him.

 When they crossed the line for 13 laps to go, Macedo was given 14 seconds to breathe with no attempts for a pass. But Schuchart was still there. Lurking. Waiting.

 With 12 laps to go, Macedo couldn’t sit. Schuchart threw another slide job at him in turn one. This time, it worked. The Shark Racing car cleared Macedo exiting turn two and pulled away down the backstretch.

 Macedo was determined to not let the win slip away. With a Hail Marry dive into turn three – closing about a three-car length gap – Macedo sped by Schuchart on the bottom of the track and reclaimed the lead on the exit of the turn.

 They charged by the flag stand with 11 laps to go and Schuchart threw his car back underneath Macedo into turn one. They slid through the corner side by side, but Macedo had the advantaged against the cushion and powered to the lead down the backstretch. Behind them, Pittman won his own battle against Ian Madsen to remain third.

 “Once I did get by Carson, I was maybe a little too conservative,” Schuchart said. “I had one more shot after I passed him, when he passed me back, to try to throw one more slider on him. I was a little too hesitant to let it go up and I feel like I could have. Once he went by, I feel like he went by in a slower motion, a little bit further than I was expecting him to.”

 Six laps went by with Macedo continuing to balance maintaining the lead while negotiating lap cars. He put a comfortable gap between he and second-place, which became a three-way between Schuchart, Pittman and Madsen.

 With three laps to go, Pittman slid by Schuchart for second and put together one last effort to run Macedo down. But it wasn’t enough. Macedo cruised to the win during night two of the Jackson Nationals.

 “I knew that if we could get in clean air and make good clean laps and get through traffic well we could run OK,” Macedo said.

 Pittman finished second and Schuchart held on to third – a big improvement from his 18th-place run during Thursday’s opening night race for the Jackson Nationals.

 Pittman’s second-place finish was his fifth top-five in-a-row – after finishing fourth Thursday night. It’s a positive trajectory toward his quest to return to Victory Lane.

 “If we keep running, top-three, top-five every night, god, you got to think wins will come,” Pittman said. “We’re close. I think we were closer to winning tonight than we were last night, so I’m happy with the direction we’re going.”

 Strong runs from Pittman and Macedo – who finished eighth Thursday night – during the two preliminary opening night Jackson Nationals races have garnered them enough points to lock themselves into Saturday’s DIRTVision Fast Pass, along with David Gravel and Thursday night’s winner Brad Sweet. The remaining four Dash starters will be determined by Saturday's Heat races.

 When it comes to Saturday’s 40-lap $41,000-to-win Feature, Pittman said he thinks he and his team are as good as anyone competing.

 For Macedo, Friday night was all about his third Series win. The Lemoore, Calif.-native’s first two Series wins came at Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, Calif. With his win in Jackson, Minn., people can now stop asking him when he’ll win at another track.

 “A couple of people said, ‘We need to see you win an Outlaw race somewhere other than Chico,’” Macedo said. “So, it feels good to do that. This is my third time ever racing at this track.”

 His relief and triumphant joy were clear for everyone to see when he went from “standing in his seat” to standing on the back of his car, arms in the air and a joyous yell loud enough to be heard through his helmet.


 The 41st Annual AGCO Jackson Nationals at Jackson Motorplex will conclude Saturday, June 29.

Chris Andrews wins at Attica Raceway Park

By Brian Liskai

Attica, Ohio - Chris Andrews knew he had to switch something up in order to wrestle the lead away from Cale Conley Friday at Attica Raceway Park. Andrews, a two-time Attica 410 track champion, searched around on the track and found something in the middle and took the lead from Conley with two laps to go and went on to score his eighth career win at Attica on Kear's Speed Shop/Carpenters' Union 744 Night.

Attica's defending Summit Racing Equipment UMP Late Model track champion Ryan Markham held off Doug Drown to score his 15th career win at "Ohio's Finest Racing" speedplant. Markham, from Ashland, Ohio, now sits alone in third on the track's all-time late model win list.

Newark, Ohio's Mitch Harble has run 410 sprint cars the majority of his driving career. A deal was struck Thursday night for Harble to drive Matt Russel's 305 sprint car and it paid off. Harble led all 25 non-stop laps to score his first ever Attica win.

In the Callie's Performance Products 410 Sprint feature, Conley, who scored Attica's opening season win, bolted into the lead and but Andrews, from Sandusky, Ohio, began searching the track's surface and found grip in the middle of turns three and four and raced under Conley late before executing a slider in his Mackey Motorsports machine in turns one and two with two laps to go.

"Cale got me opening night and he was not going to get me again. The one thing I couldn't do was keep following him because of the dirty air. I started moving to the middle in one and two and running bottom of three and four and I could get to him but I just couldn't seal the deal. I saw five to go and I knew I had to do something different. I just sailed it in there...that cushion was pretty sketchy. The car was good. Duane and Ken Mackey put us in some good stuff. Glen wrenching on this thing and Doug Berryman with the shocks...this thing is hooked up," said Andrews beside his Kistler Racing Products/Scotty's Body Shop/Griewahn's Concrete/Design Graphics Group backed machine.

The point standings in the $10,000 to win All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series Presented by the Baumann Auto Group will get a big shake-up following the 410 feature Friday as the series heads to Fremont Speedway Saturday, June 29. Also, Kear's Speed Shop celebrating their 50th anniversary, handed out over $10,000 worth of manufacturer products to the race teams at Attica.

Markham had to survive several restarts with Drown, who has two wins on the season at Attica, right on his rear bumper. Markham was an expert handling a very thin cushion in turn two to score his first victory of the season.

"We've been starting at the back all year and working our way to the front. Luckily tonight we got a good starting spot...the competition here every week is just stellar and sometimes you start back there in 10th and it's a tough deal. It was good to have some clean track tonight. I kept getting a push in one and two but if your pushing that means the rear tires are hooked up and you're not spinning. Toward the end I got up on the wheel a little more and made sure I didn't make a mistake," said Markham beside his Harriger Towing/Matco Tools/Kingdoms Cup Coffee/The Beer Barrel/Accuforce/Innovative Graphics/Hickory Hollow Concrete backed machine.

In the non-stop 25 lap Fremont Fence 305 Sprint feature, Harble grabbed the early lead, nearly gave up the point in heavy lapped traffic and survived a bobble on the cushion in turns three and four late in the race to earn his first ever Attica win.

"We put this deal together at about 10 last feels unbelievable to finally be on the horse track at Attica. We've been trying to get here for 15 years. I have to thank my mom and dad, Matt Russell, Ryan Prosser and everyone on this team," said Harble about his Cassandra Mayer Attorney/The Holden Agency/Tim's Mid-Ohio Home Improvement/Shag-A-Lees/Tru Form Eyewear/Russell's Property Maintenance/Ace Auto Performance backed #25.

Conley and Andrews brought the field to green for the 30-lap 410 sprint feature but Nate Dussel spun on the start, collecting DJ Foos, Hunter Schuerenberg, Jess Stiger and Buddy Kofoid.On the second attempt at green, Conley rocketed into the lead over Andrews while Trey Jacobs and Chad Kemenah battled for third.

On lap five Dussel and Travis Philo would bring out the caution, wiping out Conley's lead over Andrews, Kemenah, Jacobs, Brian Lay and TJ Michael. On the restart Conley, Andrews and Kemenah pulled away while Jacobs and Michael battled for fourth with Lay and Tyler Gunn staying within striking distance. A debris caution at the half-way point saw the running order Conley, Andrews, Kemenah Jacobs, Michael, Gunn, Lay, Stuart Brubaker and Max Stambaugh.

With 10 laps to go, Andrews had moved his line and was closing on Conley while Kemenah, Jacobs, Michael, Lay and Stambaugh gave chase. With five laps to go it was a great three car battle for the lead between Conley, Andrews and Kemenah. Kemenah would slide off the track in turn two a lap later but came back on still in third while Conley and Andrews raced side by side for the lead. Andrews through a slider on Conley in turns one and two with two laps to go and made it stick to take the lead.

Andrews drove to the victory over Conley, Kemenah, Lay and Jacobs.

Steve Kester and Markham led the late model field to green for their 25 lap feature with Kester grabbing the point over Markham, Drown, Mitch Caskey and Jeff Warnick. Markham drove the high line into the lead on lap two just before the caution came out for a Warnick spin which collected Bob Mayer. The early part of the feature had three cautions in the first five laps, slowing the pace. When the green came out for a restart on lap six, Markham had to fend off Drown while Kester and Dan Wallace battled for third.

While Markham and Drown ran nose to tail up front and Kester and Wallace battled for third, an entertaining race ensued for fifth involving Caskey, Jeff Geis, Matt Irey and Casey Noonan. A caution for debris with 10 laps to go bunched the field up and once again Markham was able to hold off Drown with Kester and Wallace resuming their battle for third but now joined by Irey. A final caution for a Nate Potts spin on lap 17 gave Drown one last shot at Markham. But, Markham didn't make a mistake and drove to the win over Drown, Kester, Irey and Wallace.

The 305 A-main got off to a rough start as outside front row starter Luke Griffith got upside down as the field started to assemble. When the green flew, pole-sitter Harble bolted into the lead with Kyle Peters, who owns a victory at Attica this season, falling back into second with Jason Keckler, Jamie Miller, Paul Weaver and Zeth Sabo in pursuit. Miller took third on the second lap with Weaver moving into fourth.

Harble began to pull away from Peters while Miller and Weaver fought for third with Tyler Street, Kyle Capodice and Keckler giving chase. Harble ran into heavy lapped traffic by lap 11 and that allowed Peters to close to within a car length while Weaver moved into third. Weaver, who also owns a win this year at Attica, used lapped cars to take second on lap 14. Harble bobbled just once on the cushion in turns three and four with four laps to go but was able to maintain the lead.

Harble took the checkers in the non-stop race over Weaver, Peters, Miller and Capodice.

No One Hit Wonder- Jeff Miller Picks Up Second Win of 2019 in Rookie Season Dylan Yoder, Todd Snook and Brad Mitch Claim Victories as Wekk

By- Justin Snyder

PORT ROYAL, Pa- Jeff Miller doesn’t want to be a one-hit wonder. When he won his first Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car victory at Port Royal Speedway about a month ago, many were surprised.

But Miller is full of confidence and wanted more. He backed it up by winning again Saturday night during Glick Fire Equipment Juniata County Fire and Rescue Nigh tbesting track point leader Logan Wagner and last weeks winner Lucas Wolfe.

"The last couple of weeks didn’t go as planned and we changed the car around almost 180 degrees," said Miller, a rookie in the 410 ranks this season.  "This is the same car we won with earlier this season and wow what a difference we saw tonight."

Another rookie, Tyler Walton, and Ohio native Jack Sodeman led the field to the green flag with Walton jumping out to an early lead using the outside of the speedway in turns one and two to grab the point.

One lap later, Miller began to make his move as he passed Sodeman in turn 3 to move into the second position. The following lap Miller slid Walton in turns one and two to take the lead and he began to check out from the field.

Meanwhile things were getting dicey throughout the field. Sixth starting Jared Esh moved by Walton for the second position in turn three on lap 4, while ninth starting Logan Wagner made a daring move the following lap to go from sixth to third in turn one on the bottom of the speedway. Lucas Wolfe would pass by Wagner on the backstretch as the field began to settle in and try and reel Miller in.

Miller, holding a huge lead, would hit lap traffic on lap 8, while Wagner would slide Wolfe for third on lap 13 using the bottom of turns one and two. Two laps later, with the lap car of Rick Lafferty causing Esh to break his momentum, Wagner rolled through the middle of turns 1 and 2 to move into the second position.

One lap later Wolfe was able to overtake Esh for the third position.

Over the next 7 laps, Wagner would work the entire speedway, using every inch of 'The Speed Palace' to make up ground on the leader. Meanwhile Miller was struggling with the laps cars of Justin Whittall and Walton. On lap 22, Wagner would make his move, driving through the middle of turn 1 in attempt of pulling a slide job, but Miller used momentum coming out of turn 2 to pull away once again.

"I knew Logan was there and you can’t afford to mess around with these guys behind you," said Miller. "Logan is one of the hottest drivers in the country right now, so I knew it was time to go if I was going to hold him off."

Wagner would regroup following the slide-job attempt and once again settle in over the final 3 laps. With a lap car in between him and Miller, Wagner once again sized him up. This time he tried the middle of the speedway through turns 3 and 4, pulling to the tail tank of Miller, however Miller pulled away off the top of the Speedway to take the checkered flag by .377 seconds.

"I kept seeing Logan show his nose and I was holding on with everything I had," said Miller. "I was either going to beat him or stuff it in the fence. Luckily we ended up here in first and I'm super excited for my whole team."

For Wagner, it was a great run from 9th. However, he didn't realize he wasn't leading the race and wished he'd driven a little harder over the final laps.

"We were really good and we got there  racing pretty hard with Lucas and I guess we let Miller check out on us," said Wagner, the current Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car points leader. "I thought once we got by Lucas we were leading the race and that's on me 100% as a driver not knowing."

"But shout out to that kid. It’s his second win of the year and he was driving one heck of a race. He was up on the fence banging that right rear off the fence and you got to tip your hat and move on to the next one."

Wolfe, Esh and Blane Heimbach completed the top 5 with Dylan Cisney, Tyler Reeser, TJ Stuttus, Aj Flick and Kyle Smith rounding out the top 10

River Valley Builders Super Late Models

It would be hard to classify Dylan Yoder's season as a failure. He hasnlt finished off the podium once all season and holds a commanding points lead in the River Valley Builders Super Late Model Series standings. However, he hadn’t won a race at Port Roysl Speedway in 2019.

Yoder finally got the monkey off his back and parked his #24 in victory lane, besting Kyle Hardy and Andy Haus for the $2000 winner's share.

"It was a lot of fun out there," said Yoder. "I didn’t feel like I could really do anything wrong out there. We've been second and third so many times this year. It's nice to get a win a be here in victory lane."

Rance Garlock and Austin Berry led the field to the green flag with Garlock jumping out to the early lead by a nose over Berry at the line. However, Berry would get a run coming off the top of turn 4 to take the lead the following lap.

Meanwhile, 7th starting Hardy began making his move through the field. He used the top of the speedway in turn 2 on lap 3 to move into fourth. One lap later Hardy would use the bottom on the front stretch to pull past Mike Lupfer for third at the flagstand.

Haus and Yoder would move into fourth and fifth a lap later. The following circuit Hardy used the bottom of turns 1 and 2 to pull past Garlock into the second position and he began to set his sights on Berry.

One lap later, using the bottom of turns 3 and 4, Yoder pulled past Haus and Garlock to move into third at the flagstand.

Berry's attempt to take home the checkered flag came to an end when he slowed while leading with an issue for a broken rear end, handing the lead to Hardy. The yellow would fly on lap 9 as 2 cars tangled in turn three, bunching up the field for a complete restart,

On the restart, Yoder tried to use the bottom of the speedway, but Hardy was able to use his momentum to pull ahead once again exiting turn 2 to lead lap 11. The caution would fly once again when Ralph Morgan came to a stop in turn 14 on lap 12.

Hardy would once again get the jump on the restart. However, Yoder this time tried the top of the speedway. He'd make it stick exiting turn 2 to take the lead for good on lap 15.

"The track is so wide and you just never  really know which line to take out there, " said Hardy, of Yoer using the top to take the lead. "Dylan is really fast this year and he just was better than us in spots where we were not."

Yoder would hit lap traffic on lap 20, but would never be challenged over the remaining 10 circuits. At he checkered fklag, Yoder held a 2.254 second advantage over Hardy, Haus, Lupfer and Gene Knuab.

"We've been really fast and we just needed luck to find our way," said Yoder of his first triumph of the year. "We just were patient and hit our spots and here we are getting the win."

Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Models

After a side-by-side battle that last several laps, Todd Snook bested Troy Miller to take home the checkered and the $800 winners share during the Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Model portion of Saturday night's event.

"Out car was really good and I was kind of moving around a lot to find where the car was best on the track," said Snook, "I knew once we got out front, we’d have a good chance to win it."

Mike Smith and Kevin Probst led the field to the green flag, with the Troy Miller making it three wide after a bobble on the front row at the flagstand to lead the first lap.

While Miller started to build his lead, Snook was busy moving through the field from his seventh starting position. By lap 4, Snook had entered the top 3, moving into the position using the bottom of the speedway in turn's 3 and 4.

Eighth place starter Andrew Yoder was on the move as well, following Snook into 4th by lap 5.

Miller was holding a nice advantage when Chase Bowsman came to a stop on the front stretch in front of the flag stand, bringing out the caution at the halfway point.

Following a return to green flag action, Miller and Snook put on a battle that had fans on the edge of their seats. Over the next 5 laps, Snook would use the bottom of the speedway to pull even with Miller, though Miller would lead each lap thanks to momentum he gained exiting turn 4 on the top of the speedway.

Finally,  Snook was able to make it stick, leading lap 16 at the line and he never looked back. Snook would go on to take the victory by a margin of 2.525 seconds over Miller, Yoder, Ryan Zook and Devin Hart.

"I been racing against Troy longer than I care to admit," laughed Snook in victory. "I guess we took one home for the old guys out there tonight. I'm happy to win one in a hard fought battle."

For Miller, he thought he had the best car but a mistake cost him the race.

"I think if we didn’t bobble a bit coming out of turn 4 we'd have been able to be sitting there where he is," said Miller. "We can’t be too upset with a second, but I think I let one get away tonight."

Kevin Probst, Shaun Miller, Mike Smith, Paul Cursey and Steve Kent Jr closed out the top 10.
