Ferree Scores Osmer Memorial Win; Kuriger Bests Sprints; King Sr. Tames Modifieds; Schneider Finds Victory Lane


Sarver, PA (July 30, 2021) After what seemed like an eternity, Fab4 racing returned to The Action Track on Friday night underneath blue skies and with they eyes on some Lernerville legends looking on as Nostalgia Night took center stage before the night of racing action. And when the checkered flags started to fall, some familiar and less familiar drivers found themselves in Terry Bowser Excavating Victory Lane.

In the 4th Annual Osmer Memorial Race for the Precise Racing Products Late Models, Alex Ferree added to his career totals with his 39th feature victory and first at Lernerville in the iconic #1C Cochran Automotive machine. Ferree wired the field while keeping ahead of challenges from Ken Schaltenbrand, Colton Flinner and Jared Miley en route to the win. In Peoples Natural Gas Sprint Car main event action, Dan Kuriger hit his marks with precision and worked lapped traffic smoothly and efficiently to bring home his first feature victory since May of 2017 as Micheal Bauer and Brandon Matus rounded out the podium.

Father got the best of son in the Diehl Automotive DIRTcar Big Block Modified feature as Rex King Sr. held off Rex King Jr. to collect his second win of the season while Dave Murdick crossed the line in third. And in the Millerstown Pic-A-Part Penn Ohio Pro Stock main event, Chris Schneider made his way past a hard running Nick Kocuba in the late stages to score his 27th feature win at Lernerville.

The action returns on Tuesday, August 3 as we host a Test and Tune night plus a full program for the Blazczak Home Heat Mini Stocks. Racing starts at 7:30 PM while the grandstands are free.

Trey Jacobs finally gets 410 win at Attica; Schlenk earns thrilling late model win; Miller nabs 4th 305 victory


Friday, July 30, 2021

By Brian Liskai

ATTICA, Ohio (Friday, July 30, 2021) – Trey Jacobs has finished second at Attica Raceway Park three times this season, including being nipped last week by .084 seconds. This Friday Jacobs, who came into the night leading the 410 sprint points at “Ohio’s Finest Racing” facility, took the lead late in the race to earn his first career win at Attica on Kear’s Speed Shop/True Alpha Wealth Management Night.

Jacobs, whose father Dean won Attica’s track title in 2011, became the seventh different first time 410 sprint winner in 15 events at the track in 2021. Attica’s 2016 rookie of the year also won last Saturday at Wayne County Speedway.

“I’ve run second here too many times. Finally it seems like we’re really getting rolling after coming about as close as you could possibly get last week. We had that restart there with not very many laps to go (six laps) and I knew the bottom was really good and I was able to make it work. As soon as I cleared Stewie (Stuart Brubaker) I knew I couldn’t let this one get away from me. I started over driving entry a little bit and got hung out in the middle…with a couple to go I told myself to calm down. I knew I was fast enough on the bottom to get by those guys so they would have to really come on and rip the curb to get a run on me to get by. It’s a huge relief to finally get that first one at Attica. I’ve been down on this horse track countless times with my dad and I’ve always dreamed of getting down here. I hope this is the start to many to come,” said Jacobs beside his Performance Foot & Ankle, Thrifty Muffler, VIB-ISO, All Overstock, Tim Yerian, Integrity Auto and Trucks Sales backed #3J.

In a fantastic UMP Late Model A-main, McClure, Ohio’s Rusty Schlenk used a late race restart to drive around Ryan Missler to score his third victory of the year at Attica. It’s his 31st career win at the track as he sits atop the all-time win list for the division. The 25-lap A-main saw Schlenk, Missler and Doug Drown battle throughout. Schlenk was leading last week at Attica and jumped the cushion and smacked the front stretch wall which injured his hand.

“We’ve had a rough couple of weeks. I made a joke on Facebook last week that I was washed up after putting it into the front stretch wall while leading. So I had to come back and prove to everybody that I have a little bit left in me. We lost power steering in the heat race…that’s why I went to the bottom and ran around the bottom the whole heat just trying to get a re-draw. I suffered it out in the heat race with one hand and no power steering and got a re-draw and that put us up front to have a chance to put on a show for everyone,” said Schlenk beside his Buckeye Concrete, VP Fuel, Tom Finch Auto, Bilstein Shocks, Landrum Springs, Dominator Race Products backed #91.

Fremont, Ohio’s Jamie Miller, a two-time Attica 305 champion took the lead at the drop of the green for the non-stop 25 lap 305 feature and never looked back. Miller, who hasn’t finished out of the top four all season long at Attica, earned his fourth win of the year and 31st of his career to sit second on the track’s all time win list for the division.

“I definitely have no complaints. This thing was fast. There was a little rubber up top there and that’s a little different for here but we’re really good up there and I just road it out and parked it. I was looking ahead and watching and all the lapped cars went to the bottom. I was like this can’t be happening,” said Miller of his : Smitty’s Pizza, JLH General Contractor, Queen of Clean, Rohr Total Lawn Care, Sonic Hauling, Phil Rister, Sloopy’s Pizza, Reedtown Tavern, Crown Battery, Schreiner Farms, Roberts & Sons Contracting, Fostoria Mod Shop, Kenny Kalb Farms backed #26.

In the 30-lap Callie’s Performance Products 410 Sprint A-main, Nate Dussel grabbed the early lead but he and DJ Foos made contact while battling up front with Dussel flipping and Foos heading to the pits. That put Brian Smith into the top spot and he held it for a lap before Brubaker charged to the lead.

The caution flew on lap five, wiping out a huge lead for Brubaker. When the green flew Brubaker began to pull away from Chris Andrews while Travis Philo, Smith, Caleb Griffith and Jacobs battled hard for third. That war for third went on for several laps until lap 16 when Philo took a nasty crash off turn four; he was okay.

On the restart 11th starting Jacobs drove under Andrews for second but Andrews fought back retaking the position on lap 19 with Jacobs returning the favor a lap later just before the red flew for Andrew Fike whose car caught fire; he was okay. Brubaker continued to lead but now Jacobs applied pressure to his inside when the green came back out. Brubaker and Jacobs ran side by side for the lead for three laps before Jacobs powered off the bottom into the top spot just before the final caution flew with six laps to go.

Jacobs was just too good on the low side of the track and drove away for the win over Brubaker, Andrews, Griffith and Cole Macedo.

Pole-sitter Doug Drown grabbed the lead at the drop of the green for the 25 lap Dirt Nerds Podcast/ late model feature with Devin Shiels, Missler and Schlenk right that to challenge. Missler moved into second on the second lap with Schlenk taking third a circuit later just before a caution. The next two green flag laps saw Drown challenged by Missler and Schlenk before another caution. When the green flew the battle was on. Missler grabbed the lead on lap eight but Drown continued to hound him with Schlenk, Ryan Markham and last week’s winner Mike Bores staying close.

Missler encountered lapped traffic by lap 14 and Drown and Schlenk were there to pounce. Schlenk moved into second on lap 17 just before a debris caution. Schlenk used the restart to drive to Missler’s outside and when the leader pushed up the track Schlenk pounced into the lead. Schlenk pulled away the final five laps to take the win over Missler, Bores, Matt Irey and JR Gentry.

Miller immediately grabbed the lead of the Fremont Fence 305 Sprint A and quickly used the cushion to build a sizeable lead over Steve Rando and Justin Lusk. Young Bryce Lucius came on strong with 10 laps to go and took third while Matt Foos charged into fourth. With five laps to go Miller had put three lapped cars between himself and Rando. Foos drove into third on lap 22 and when Rando made contact with the front stretch wall on the last lap Foos grabbed second. Miller drove to the win over Foos, Kasey Jedrzejek, Lucius and Rando.

Attica Raceway Park will take a couple of weeks off for the Attica Independent Fair and will get back to racing on Friday, Aug. 20 with the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products 410 Attica Fremont Championship Series Presented by the Baumann Auto Group, the UMP late models and the NAPA of Bryan 305 AFCS Presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales in action.

Matt Campbell Drives Flawless Event To Turn Back Dietrich And Dewease At Williams Grove Derek Locke sweeps two 358 sprint mains, runs score to six wins on season



Mechanicsburg –Matt Campbell drove a flawless and smart race to pick up the $5,000 sprint car feature at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night at the wheel of the Jerry Parrish-owned No. 21

The Fawn Grove driver came out on top in a hotly contested event from start to finish to notch his second career speedway victory.

In the 358 sprint ranks, Carlisle’s Derek Locke continued his remarkable domination of the division by claiming both features contested on the night.

His pair of victories marked his fifth and sixth of the season at the track where he has locked every other driver out of the winner’s circle.

The start of the 410 sprint car feature saw drama from the drop of the green when second starter Lance Dewease dropped to fourth while polesitter Campbell, third starter Danny Dietrich and fourth starter Anthony Macri went three-wide through the second corner for the lead.

Campbell came out on top while Dietrich and Macri settled in behind.

Dewease took a swipe at Macri for third on the sixth tour only to see Macri reclaim the spot and the leaders then entered the rear of the field on the eighth lap.

Dietrich then mounted a charge on Campbell that saw him drive low into the lead in both the first and third turns only to see Campbell perform flawlessly on the cushion to rocket back into control with huge runs out of the corners.

After Dietrich regrouped from his two failed attempts and Dewease took third from Macri on lap 11, Dietrich came back for more.

The Gettysburg driver blasted across the bottom of the first and second turns on the 13th loop only to again see a stout, solid running Campbell make up huge ground and vault back into the top spot as the pair shot out of turn two.

Dietrich then soon began feeling pressure from Dewease for the second spot before Dewease scored the spot with seven laps to go.

This set up a battle for the win with Dewease down low and Campbell up top but just as Dewease started taking jabs for command, Campbell took his low lane away and began turning back the advances.

The first caution flag of the race unfurled with five laps to go for a stopped Devon Borden and Campbell out paced Dewease on the restart to beat him into the first turn, again using his line on the bottom.

With Dewease in hot pursuit, a final yellow flag bunched the field with three laps to go and again Campbell protected the bottom to pull away onto the backstretch.

Dewease was forced to stalk but never pounce as he chased the leader around the inside all the way to the finish, ending up .512 seconds behind at the finish.

“That was fun, but it wasn’t easy,” Campbell said.

“I checked out the top before the race and I thought that was going to be where I needed to run. I guess I made the right call. It was fast at the beginning.”

The winner first talked about racing so close with Danny Dietrich,

“He raced me clean,” Campbell said about Dietrich

“I seen what he was trying to do. If I jumped the cushion, he had me cleared. I just kept thinking ‘keep it smooth, keep it smooth.’ We got to racing the lapped cars and that broke it up a little and gave me some space,” he said.

For Dewease’s part, Campbell said, “I got passed a lapped car and he showed his nose to me again and I knew it was time to move down.”

“I just tried to run clean laps, run around the bottom and not make any mistakes and here we are,” Campbell said.

Dietrich was third followed by Freddie Rahmer and TJ Stutts.

Sixth through 10th went to Lucas Wolfe, Chase Dietz, Anthony Macri, Mark Smith and Aaron Bollinger.

Heats went to Campbell, Dewease and Dietrich with Chris Arnold taking the consolation race.

Locke drove from the 10th starting spot to get the lead in the first 358 sprint main of the night that was a make up event that originally fell victim to rain on July 16.

In the extra distance Summer Series event, it took Locke until lap 18 to get the lead from Steve Owings.

Owings had inherited control on lap seven when leader Brett Wanner dropped off of the pace.

Owings rode home second followed by Rich Eichelberger, Cody Fletcher and Travis Scott.

Locke dominated the second and final 358 main of the night after starting on the pole and leading all 25 laps while lapping up to seventh position in the field.

Chris Frank, Matt Findley, Justin Foster and John Stehman completed the top five finishers.

Heats went to Locke and Eichelberger.

Kerry Madsen hard charges from tenth to score All Star victory at 34 Raceway


WEST BURLINGTON, Iowa (July 30, 2021) - It was a long way to the top for the “Madman” Kerry Madsen, but the open wheel veteran out of Knoxville, Iowa, via New South Wales, Australia, made it look effortless on Friday night at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa, ultimately charging ahead nine spots to secure his place in FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory lane. The triumph, Madsen’s first of the season with the Series and tenth overall, scored the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing wheelman a $6,000 payday, holding off a late advancement by Clauson Marshall Racing’s Tyler Courtney.

The nine-spot rally also secured Madsen the evening’s Hard Charger Award for advancing the most feature positions.

“I just want to thank everyone at Tony Stewart Racing for the opportunity. It’s been such a pleasure to drive this thing,” Kerry Madsen said, driver of the Rush Truck Centers/Advance Auto Parts/Ford Performance/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/No. 14 sprint car. “The guys work their butts off and give me a fast race car every night. This Ford Performance 410 is unbelievable. I just really love racing it.”

Despite starting from the inside of row five, Madsen made his presence known rather quickly, utilizing the very bottom of the speedway to power his way to third by lap seven. Continuing his march on the bottom, Madsen eventually maneuvered his way to second, sneaking by Sam McGhee Motorsports’ Spencer Bayston on lap 14. Meanwhile, the “Northpole Nightmare” Bill Balog held down the fort, leading the way from the pole position while focusing on 34 Raceway’s outer edge.

Despite Balog’s attempt to outrun his fellow frontrunners, his momentum on the cushion was no match for Madsen’s smoothness on the bottom. Lap after lap, Madsen chopped away at Balog’s lead, closing the gap to just a car length by lap 18, then pulling even with the B Squared Motorsports entry the following circuit. By the completion of lap 20, Madsen was the new man in charge, using the exit of turn four to propel himself beyond Balog’s No. 17B.

Tyler Courtney, who followed Madsen passed Balog on lap 22, did his best to dethrone the former Knoxville Raceway track champion, but even with lapped traffic on his side, and a pair of lap 26 cautions keeping the field bunched, the Indianapolis, Indiana-native was no match for the Tony Stewart Racing veteran.

Courtney did manage to slip by briefly, but Madsen immediately reclaimed the position, turning back underneath the NOS Turbo No. 7BC.

“When he slipped by me, I was able to turn back underneath him. I felt like once we got going and I was able to hit my marks, I was fine,” Madsen continued. “I just can't’ thank everyone enough. We’ll do what we can to do this again tomorrow night.”

The All Star Circuit of Champions will conclude their Midwest showcase with a visit to the world-famous Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday, July 31. The event, also featuring Knoxville’s competitive 360 sprint car class, will award a $7,000 payday. Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson is the defending All Star Knoxville Raceway winner, outdriving a 13th-starting Rico Abreu and Fresno, California’s Gio Scelzi.

DAVID VS. GOLIATH: Reutzel Survives Colagiovanni's Challenge at Ransomville Diverse Podium Highlights Long-Awaited New York Return for World of Outlaws


RANSOMVILLE, NY - July 31, 2021 - Ted Johnson's ideology, which he unveiled to the world back in 1978, was on full display on Friday night.

At its core, the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series is all about the best group of racers in the world traveling from track to track to face the toughest local competition available; and that was exactly what New York fans witnessed at Ransomville Speedway.

Paulie Colagiovanni, a 20-year-old native of Cicero, NY, nearly did the unthinkable and beat the goliath that is The Greatest Show on Dirt. It was only his fourth career World of Outlaws Feature, but the kid was driving as if he possessed the veteran prowess of Donny Schatz, the calm mindset of Brad Sweet, and the fiery on-track attitude of Sheldon Haudenschild.

On the other end of Colagiovanni's challenge was Aaron Reutzel, who admitted he was nervous when "the guy he had never heard of" was restarting on his tail with a green-white-checkered finish in play.

In the end, Reutzel led all 30 laps and secured his fourth win of the 2021 season aboard the Roth Motorsports #83. A victory that only builds his mighty resume as the Clute, TX native chases the distinguished Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year Award.

However, watch the tape, read the tweets, or listen to the fans, there is no denying that Colagiovanni left his mark on this group of Outlaws.

"I really didn't want to see that yellow," Reutzel noted. "I've got a guy that I honestly have no clue who he is moving on up and passing Sweet, so I have no prediction at all of what he's going to do. I was a little afraid of that, and those last two laps were nerve-racking."

Starting from the outside pole of the 30-lapper, Reutzel rode under a barrage of fireworks as he battled by World of Outlaws championship leader Brad Sweet to take the initial command. A restart on Lap 2 opened the door for Sweet to fight back, but the Roth #83 was too strong and prevailed on the high line as he ran away from the field.

On Lap 12, fourth-starting Colagiovanni made his boldest move of the race, throttling around the outside of Sweet and threading the needle to put his PJC Motorsports #10 into the second spot. Beyond halfway and into the closing stages, Colagiovanni kept Reutzel at a reasonable distance but struggled to put himself in a position to make a bid for the lead.

With two-to-go, the caution flew for fourth-running Haudenschild with a flat right rear tire. A stoppage that brought the standing-room-only crowd to life in support of their home state hero.

The green-white-checkered finish fired off and Reutzel ducked low while Colagiovanni committed to the top. The local kid built a run with his momentum and was all over the #83 as the white flag waved and fans rose to their feet.

However, Reutzel was not to be denied, perfecting the bottom with the pressure mounting. Colagiovanni gave it one last shot through turns three and four, but A-Aron survived and beat him to the line by 0.325-seconds at the checkered flag.

"The track changed a lot," Reutzel said. "It was technical and you really had to move around. I tried to keep my wing speed up and roll with momentum early, but once everyone on the bottom got the top dirty I knew I needed to move down for good. Hopefully, all of this bad luck is out of the way and we can get to winning as Dennis and Theresa Roth deserve."

Not for a lack of effort, Paulie Colagiovanni officially crossed the stripe with a career-best second-place finish. In only four previous appearances, the 2019 Empire Super Sprints champion had recorded a best of 16th, and now he's got silver around his neck.

"I was thinking I'd be thrilled with a top-10 hopefully, so to finish second against these guys is unreal," Colagiovanni offered. "The track was good all night and I love ripping the top here. I think it faded over there in turns three and four, so I had to migrate to the bottom there at the end. I'm just thankful to be here. Wow."

Sneaking on the podium during the final restart was Kraig Kinser, who earned his first Slick Woody's QuickTime since May 2019 to start the night at Ransomville. It's his second top-three finish of the 2021 season.

"We really missed in the Heat Race, but the car came around good for the Feature," Kinser said. "You know you're in the right spot when you're up there racing with guys like Sheldon, David, and Brad."

Rounding out the top-five was polesitter Brad Sweet in fourth aboard the Kasey Kahne Racing, NAPA Auto Parts #49, and Connecticut's David Gravel in fifth with the Big Game Motorsports, Huset's Speedway #2.

Closing out the top-10 at Ransomville was Carson Macedo with his 15th consecutive top-seven finish, Logan Schuchart with KSE Hard Charger honors in seventh-from-15th, Donny Schatz aboard the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing #15, James McFadden in his Kasey Kahne Racing #9, and Pennsylvania's Brock Zearfoss in the tenth position.

Tyler Courtney earns seventh All Star victory of season in State Fair Speedway’s Ron Ditzfeld Memorial


SEDALIA, Mo. (July 29, 2021) - For the seventh time in 2021, Indianapolis, Indiana’s Tyler Courtney is a FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event winner, doing so in Missouri State Fair Speedway’s Ron Ditzfeld Memorial on Thursday, July 29. The victory, a $10,000 score for the young man they call Sunshine, was accomplished from the inside of row two, taking command for the first on lap eight after battling by fellow All Star full-timer and recent high school graduate, Zeb Wise. Although faced with a handful of cautions during his tenure, as well as a few peaks of the nose by Kerry Madsen, Sunshine held strong, followed at the line by Madsen, Ayrton Gennetten, Justin Peck, and Kasey Kahne.

“The boys got this Turbo car rolling tonight. They didn’t stop working the whole time. We were kinda off at the beginning, but we got better every time we hit the track. I can’t thank these fans enough for sticking it out today in this heat. These fans are what make all of this possible,” Tyler Courtney said, driver of the Clauson Marshall Racing, NOS Turbo, No. 7BC sprint car. “We’re rolling into the biggest two weeks of the year at Knoxville, and we get to race there on Saturday, so hopefully we can keep this momentum going. The Nationals is just a whole different ball game. You have to be on your ‘A’ game as soon as you step in that place.”

Angola, Indiana’s Zeb Wise, who started the 30-lapper from the pole position, led the first seven circuits around State Fair Speedway’s sprawling halfmile, uninterrupted until faced with a gaggle of slower cars at the start of lap eight.

During Wise’s attempt to dive below a lapper, Courtney, who had been solidly in second since lap one, made his move, ultimately pulling even with Wise by the exit of turn two, all before using the bottom groove to pull ahead of Wise at the exit of turn four. Madsen, aboard the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing No. 14, also snuck by Wise in traffic, locking down second on lap nine.

Unfortunately for Wise, his potential top-five was cut short on lap 15, eventually ending his night on the hook after getting upside-down and leaving the park; he was OK.

Madsen tried his best to get by Courtney during each of the ensuing single-file restarts, four to be exact, but Courtney’s momentum on the top was too strong.

“I kept stumbling on those last few restarts, so I knew Kerry was going to get a good run. I just tried to take any air that I could off of him and get back to the curb as quickly as I could,” Courtney continued. “Kerry is obviously a really good racer and that 14 car has been really fast here the last month or so. I knew it was going to be all about the starts.”

Jumping north into the Hawkeye State, the All Star Circuit of Champions will conclude their Midwest showcase with a pair of stops in Iowa kicking off Friday, July 30, at the 34 Raceway in West Burlington, followed by a visit to the world-famous Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville on Saturday, July 31. Awarding a total winner’s share equaling $13,000, the Iowa doubleheader will feature a $6,000 payday at 34 Raceway, followed by a $7,000 payday at Knoxville.

Big Game Motorsports and Gravel Post Three Top 10s During Week in Pennsylvania


Inside Line Promotions - MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (July 28, 2021) - David Gravel produced a trio of top-10 finishes last week in Pennsylvania.

The Big Game Motorsports driver highlighted the three World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series races a week ago Tuesday when he placed fourth during the Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup hosted by Lernerville Speedway in Sarver.

Gravel opened the night by qualifying sixth quickest. A heat race win earned a spot into the dash. Gravel advanced a position to finish second, which started him on the outside of the front row for the main event.

"Lernerville was pretty good from the drop of the green," he said. "I felt like we qualified well for when we went out. We were able to do good in the heat race and we gained a spot in the dash. Starting in the front row was good. We had a good handle on the car and maybe got a little overconfident. We didn't make as many adjustments as we should have with a 35-lap feature and we were too free. The track got slicker and there wasn't much grip to be had. You just end up sliding around."

The fourth-place result was his 25th top five of the season.

Gravel ventured to Williams Grove Speedway for the Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals last weekend. He timed in eighth quickest, placed second in a heat race and rallied from eighth to fourth in the dash on Friday to start the A Main on the outside of the second row.

"We were pretty good all night long," he said. "The best car we had all night was in the dash. I think we were so good in the dash we got cold feet to do too much to the car. We got real loose and free a couple of laps in and just held on at the end."

Gravel placed sixth and returned to the half-mile oval on Saturday for the event finale. He nearly duplicated his results from the previous night, finishing sixth in qualifying, second in a heat race, fifth in the dash and eighth in the main event.

"The track was a lot wetter that night and was pretty dominant around the top," he said. "We had a pretty good car in the A Main, but you didn't want to start on the bottom. We lost a spot on the start. I got tied up with a lapped car and lost a spot there. I passed two guys on the last restart and they both passed me going into turn one and it messed me up. If we started sixth we probably would have been fourth on Lap 1 and been in a better situation. It was just circumstances with racing."

The team heads to New York this weekend for World of Outlaws races on Friday at Ransomville Speedway in Ransomville for The Big 'R' Shootout and Saturday at Weedsport Speedway in Weedsport for the Empire State Challenge.

"Ransomville is an interesting place," he said. "It's fairly fast. We haven't raced there in a couple of years so I'm interested to see what they've done to the track to improve it. And Weedsport is a beautiful facility. It's a short track that can get really slick. Typically New York is on the slicker side. We haven't been there in several years so it will even out the playing field."

Henderson and Sandvig Record Top Fives at Knoxville Raceway and Huset's Speedway


Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (July 28, 2021) - Justin Henderson picked up a pair of top-five finishes behind the wheel of the Mike Sandvig Racing No. 7 during two nights of racing last weekend at Knoxville Raceway and Huset's Speedway.

The top-five outings wrapped up another successful weekend of racing after Henderson earned a win in his family owned No. 83 sprint car a week ago Tuesday at Rapid Speedway in Rock Rapids, Iowa.

"We didn't do well qualifying both nights and that's a department where you have to be good in at these races," he said. "Coming off a few weeks of winning you want to maintain that standard and I guess we were due for something different. I can't be upset with top-five finishes, but history says we can do better and that's what we want to do weekly."

The team entered last weekend on a four-race winning streak. The action began on Saturday at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, where Henderson timed in ninth quickest among 24 drivers during qualifying with a lap of 16.192 seconds. He then won a heat race from the fourth starting spot to lock into the A Main.

Henderson lined up fifth for the feature and by Lap 6 he'd advanced to third. He ultimately slipped back one position to finish fourth for his fifth top-five finish of the season at 'The Sprint Car Capital of the World.' Henderson continues to hold the points lead by 17 points with three points races remaining on the 2021 schedule.

"Where we went out in time trials affected us as after our laps it seemed everyone went to the bottom and that's where the track ended up being fastest," he said. "We managed to win our heat, but overall, it was just a night where I can't really explain it other than to say it wasn't our night."

Henderson and Sandvig headed to Huset's Speedway on Sunday. Henderson laid down a lap of 11.450 seconds in qualifying, which was eighth quickest out of 23 drivers. Henderson won a heat race to make the feature redraw, which ended up with him pulling the No. 7 to start on the inside of the fourth row in the main event.

He cracked the top five around the halfway mark of the 25-lap feature, but with the leader setting an extremely quick pace Henderson struggled to make up much ground and he settled for fifth. The top five was his ninth of the season at the track and he holds a 22-point advantage in the standings.

"Sunday was probably the worst we've been at Huset's this year and I was trying to do some different things to make up ground," he said. "I had a chance at third and I kind of dove in there really hard and it ended up costing us a spot and we ended up fifth instead."

Next up for the team will be another two-race weekend. They'll head to Knoxville Raceway on Saturday to compete for $7,000 with the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions before traveling to Huset's Speedway on Sunday for the $10,000-to-win Bull Haulers Brawl presented by Folkens Brothers Trucking.

"The money is definitely in the back of our mind and it's two tracks we clearly know very well," Henderson said. "We want to run well for the points deal, but you also want to win races and get rewarded that way. So, the goal is to just go in with the same mindset we have all season and try to take care of business."


July 24 - Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa - Qualifying: 9; Heat race: 1 (4); Feature: 4 (5).

Brian Brown passes Shane Stewart in closing laps for I-70 All Star victory


ODESSA, Mo. (July 27, 2021) - “Blackjack” Brian Brown scored a touchdown for the home team on Tuesday night, passing Bixby, Oklahoma’s Shane Stewart in the closing laps for a FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory at the revamped I-70 Motorsports Park in Odessa, Missouri.

The victory, occurring a mere-15 minutes from Brown’s headquarters in Grain Valley, Missouri, earned the defending Knoxville Raceway track champion a $7,000 payday, as well as a third-ever All Star victory. Impressive, nonetheless, Brown was forced to do things the hard way during his homecoming, working ahead a total of four spots while battling by KCP Racing’s Gio Scelzi and Shane Stewart. Brown took command on lap 29, stalking race-long leader Stewart before sliding by the former Outlaw turned track promoter in turns three and four.

Stewart held on to finish second, followed by Gio Scelzi, current All Star championship points leader, Tyler Courtney, and the “Madman” Kerry Madsen.

“To win a race with my Grandpa George here with us, my Uncle Danny, and my doesn’t get any better than that, I can tell ya that,” an elated Brian Brown said in I-70 victory lane, driver of the Casey’s General Store, FVP, Rowdy Energy, No. 21 sprint car. “When you have a crew like I do that tells you that ‘you’re one of the best race car drivers here with one of the best cars,’ it gives you a lot of confidence.

“And it’s getting close...Go Chiefs!”

Starting fifth on the grid, Brown’s initial jump was good enough to power the No. 21 to third, now in pursuit of Scelzi and race leader, Stewart. Besides a hiccup by Brown just after a caution on lap 12 to let Justin Peck move into third briefly, the top-three remained basically unchanged for the first 21 circuits. There were three cautions during that time period, but neither Scelzi nor Brown were able to capitalize.

Despite Stewart’s ability to sail smoothly around I-70’s halfmile, things heated up quickly when the frontrunners found the back of the field on lap 21. With lappers maneuvering in Stewart’s preferred line, the driver of the Indy Race Parts No. 71 struggled to get through, thus allowing Scelzi and Brown to close the gap in a hurry. By lap 22, the top-three were on top of each other, battling nearly three-wide through turns three and four. The jumble allowed Brown to get by Scelzi, now setting aim on Stewart. A red flag incident on lap 24, ultimately leading to a fuel stop, gave Stewart a breather, but that’s exactly what Brown needed.

The ensuing restart allowed Brown to stalk Stewart in clean air. Lap after lap, Brown made progress, making up most of his time in turn three. Brown made his winning move on lap 29, pulling even with Stewart on the bottom as the pair raced through turns three and four; Brown completed the pass, officially, the following corner, once again on the bottom.

Although a final caution would force a green-white-checkered finish, and an extra lap to race, Brown hung tough.

“Danny (Lasoski) is the best in the world at running the bottom,” Brown continued. “So, if I can learn just a little bit from him, it’s going to do a lot of great things for my career.”

“I’m tired,” laughed Shane Stewart during a post-race interview, who has not been in a sprint car in almost ten months. “Driving a grader doesn’t keep you in very good shape like driving a sprint car. Coming into tonight, if we were going to be a top-five car, I was going to be happy.”

“America’s Series” will hit high speed yet again, this time for their final Missouri appearance of 2021. Dubbed the Ron Ditzfield Memorial, the Thursday, July 29, program will award a whopping $10,000 share, welcoming the All Stars back to Missouri State Fair Speedway in Sedalia, Missouri, for the first time since August 18, 2002. Gary Wright was the victor during the Series’ most recent visit, one of two All Star victories owned by The Texan at the sprawling half-mile.

Brian Brown Amped for Three All Star Races This Week Following Triumph at Knoxville


Inside Line Promotions - KNOXVILLE, Iowa (July 27, 2021) - Brian Brown faces a trio of FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions races at familiar tracks this week on the heels of his fourth victory of the season.

Brown led all 25 laps last Saturday at Knoxville Raceway, where he captured his 54th career 410ci winged sprint car win.

July 24 - Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa - Qualifying: 3; Heat race: 2 (6); Feature: 1 (1).

"It was a good, efficient night," Brown said. "It was the first time we've been back to Knoxville in a bit so it was good to get back there. We were third quick and went sixth to second in the heat. We got a good draw for a good starting spot in the A Main. Knoxville's competition is very good so we knew we needed a good start. We were able to try some stuff and put it on the car. It seemed to rip around there pretty good. We got through traffic decent and the race went 25 laps non-stop. Hats off to Danny, Nate, Tye and my dad. It was 100-degree heat, which isn't easy on anybody. Those guys keep knocking it out of the park."

UP NEXT - Tuesday at I-70 Motorsports Park in Odessa, Mo.; Thursday at Missouri State Fair Speedway in Sedalia, Mo.; and Saturday at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, with the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions

"The All Stars are as tough as they get," Brown said. "They showed that at Eldora the other week. I feel like we're good, too. We ran well at I-70 when the Outlaws were there with a second and a sixth. It's a premier facility 15 minutes from our shop. Thursday will be a special one because of where it's at and who it's for. Ron Ditzfeld was my first-ever sponsor from Day 1 and his company, Ditzfeld Transfer, has been on my car from the start. It sucks to race a memorial race for him because he's not there, but I'd love nothing more than to bring a trophy back home in his honor. And Saturday at Knoxville, as we get closer to the Nationals every single lap counts. It will be a tough one this weekend because of the level of competition coming into town, but the level will amp up every single week. We feel like we're in a good spot right now. We're trying to learn as much as we can and be efficient and make good decisions. We want a car that is good enough to be in the hunt and I can make up the difference when it counts."

Dominic Scelzi Sweeps Night at Thunderbowl to Boost Season Win Total to 15 Triumphs


Inside Line Promotions - SANTA MARIA, Calif. (July 27, 2021) - Dominic Scelzi celebrated his first winning night as a father in style last Friday.

Scelzi doubled up by capturing the King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series and Kings of Thunder main events at Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, Calif., only one week after his daughter was born.

The big night propelled Scelzi back into the KWS-NARC points lead and he backed it up with a runner-up performance on Saturday at Santa Maria Speedway.

"One thing I've noticed since becoming a dad is a lot of the pressure has kind of been off," he said. "I don't want to say I'm not taking the racing as serious as I was, but I see it in a different light. My priorities have changed. Now I'm enjoying driving the race car even more than before, which is very neat."

Scelzi opened the action on Friday during the Chris and Brian Faria Memorial. He qualified third quickest in his 410 group and placed fourth in a heat race, which earned enough points to advance into the dash. A sixth-place result in the dash lined him up on the outside of the third row for the main event.

"I felt really good," he said. "We went out early and I didn't feel like I put down a good qualifying lap so it felt good that we were able to stay toward the top of the qualifying times without our best showing. The track was fast in the heats and then we were pretty good in the dash, but the top was the dominant place to be. We ran sixth, but it wasn't anything to shake our heads about. In the feature the track was widening out pretty quick. The top was the fastest place, but I got into third by running the bottom early in the feature. I kept that in the back of my mind. (D.J.) Netto and (Shane) Golobic didn't go down there. When we got into traffic they were sliding guys. There were several times in open air when I'd try the bottom and it wasn't good enough. When we got into traffic I felt like it would work and it did. Once we got by them both we got right back to the fence and we were able to cruise onto our second NARC with there this year."

Scelzi's victory was his series-best third of the season.

He topped the night off by hustling from eighth to win the Kings of Thunder feature, making him undefeated in six races at Thunderbowl Raceway this year. It also marked his 15th trip to Victory Lane this year.

"Once we pulled the 410 one off your confidence carries you at that point," he said. "We got right to third I think in two laps. We got to second a lap or two after that. The leader had a good pace and was on the gas. I tried to maintain a little distance and bide my time. About halfway I started closing in and then he ended up getting into a crash with two lapped cars and we barely missed that. It paid off to be patience because we were able to miss that crash and lead the last 10 or 11 laps unchallenged."

The weekend wrapped up on Saturday at Santa Maria Speedway, where Scelzi raced for the first time since 2019. He qualified eighth quickest and won a heat race to make the dash. Scelzi finished where he started - fifth - in the dash to put himself on the inside of the third row for the main event.

"We've been really good there," he said. "I ran second there in 2016 to Kyle Hirst and we won there in 2019. The goal was to stay out of the work area."

Scelzi avoided early melee and methodically worked his way into second by the midpoint of the feature on the tricky track. He tracked down the leader in the closing laps, but was unable to make a bid for the lead.

"We bided our time and missed the wrecks," he said. "We closed on Bill (Aton) late, but couldn't get by him. I kept getting under him in turn three and then he closed up his entry. That was a big win. There's a lot of good guys in the NARC series so it's neat to see him get a win."

Scelzi plans on racing this Friday at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, Calif., before running a Sprint Car Challenge Tour event on Saturday at Merced Speedway in Merced, Calif.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR: World of Outlaws Sprint Cars Make Return to New York After Three-Year Absence, Ransomville & Weedsport Host The Greatest Show on Dirt


RANSOMVILLE, NY - July 27, 2021 - For more than a thousand days, New Yorkers have been starving to see The Greatest Show on Dirt again.

This weekend, that dream finally becomes a reality again as the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series returns to The Empire State for the first time since 2018.

It all begins on Friday, July 30 with the sixth stop in Series history at Ransomville Speedway, a 4/10-mile oval located less than a half-hour from the Canadian border at Niagra Falls.

On Saturday, July 30, the Outlaws make their tenth all-time appearance at Weedsport Speedway, a 3/8-mile placed a half-hour west of Syracuse.

Both The Big "R" Outlaw Shootout and The Empire State Challenge will pay a standard purse of $10,000/Win, $1,000/Start.


LONG TIME, NO SEE: New York state was a staple for 41 consecutive seasons on the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series tour. Established in 1978, it took until 2019 for The Greatest Show on Dirt to go absent in The Empire State. Mother Nature halted the shows that year, and the COVID-19 pandemic removed any chances of a 2020 date as well.

Now, more than 1,000 days since the most recent race, the Outlaws are ready to return and give New York fans the horsepower and excitement they've been missing for almost three years.

STREAKING: Carson Macedo is officially in the midst of the longest top-10 streak of the 2021 season. In 14 races over the last month, the worst finish for the Jason Johnson Racing #41 is a seventh-place result on two occasions.

Throughout this stretch, the Lemoore, CA native has won twice, ran runner-up thrice, put it on the podium seven times, and recorded ten top-five finishes. His absurd consistency has helped Macedo pass David Gravel and return to P2 in the World of Outlaws championship standings.

Macedo's only disadvantage comes in the form of two new-to-him tracks. Joining the Series full-time in 2019, the 25-year-old will compete in New York with the World of Outlaws for the first time this weekend as he faces Ransomville and Weedsport.

EMPIRE STATE OUTLAWS: Over the years, the NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series has contested 153 races at nine different tracks in the state of New York. In today's current landscape of the 13 full-time drivers, however, only four of them have experienced victory lane in The Empire State.

Donny Schatz, the 300-time winner and 10-time champion, has earned 14 New York wins throughout his career, second only to Steve Kinser's 39. Two of those wins came at Weedsport in 2015 and 2016, but he'll be chasing his first at Ransomville on Friday night.

David Gravel of Watertown, CT is a three-time winner in the bordering state of his hometown. One of his three New York wins came in the most recent race at Ransomville, where he'll try to go back-to-back on Friday aboard the Big Game Motorsports #2.

Logan Schuchart of Hanover, PA, and Kraig Kinser of Bloomington, IN also own one win apiece when it comes to The Empire State.

BEST OF BOTH WORLDS: New York super fans will have the chance to catch not only the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars this weekend but also the Super DIRTcar Series Big Block Modifieds. The Greatest Show on Dirt invades Ransomville on Friday and Weedsport on Saturday, but before the winged warriors come to town, The Beasts of the Northeast will rumble on Thursday night at Middletown, NY's Orange County Fair Speedway.

STAYING HOT: Fresh off victories at Williams Grove Speedway last weekend, Sheldon Haudenschild and Brent Marks will look to keep their winning ways alive this weekend as they head to New York to close out the month of July.

For Marks, of Myerstown, PA, he enters as the most recent Outlaw winner at Weedsport. The Myerstown Missile led all 35 laps back in the summer of 2018 to score his second career Series victory. The #19 brings in momentum from his $20,000 Summer Nationals title.

For Haudenschild, he'll try to add another track or two to his ridiculously diverse list. Sheldon's 19 career World of Outlaws victories have come at 18 different tracks, only winning at I-55 twice. The Wooster, OH native just snagged his first-ever Williams Grove win, and now he's eyeing the bright lights of New York in his NOS Energy Drink #17.

CASHING IN: The "Month of Money" is already halfway over, but a New York doubleheader, the Ironman 55, and the 60th NOS Energy Drink Knoxville Nationals pres. by Casey's still remains. Entering this weekend, 11 teams have already cleared $20,000 in earnings over the stretch, five cars have banked more than $50,000, and the two Kings Royal winners are north of $175,000.

$191,750 - Clauson-Marshall Racing #7BC
$178,600 - Silva Motorsports #57
$59,000 - Stenhouse Jr. Marshall Racing #17
$58,150 - Jason Johnson Racing #41
$55,850 - Kasey Kahne Racing #49
$30,950 - Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing #15
$30,300 - Brent Marks Racing #19
$29,775 - Gary Kauffman Racing #48
$24,350 - Sam McGhee Motorsports #11
$23,300 - Big Game Motorsports #2
