Borden Wires For Williams Grove Sprints Win, Dietrich Puts On Passing Clinic Josh Weller wins oval first in URC Sprints


Mechanicsburg – Devon Borden wired the field from the pole to pick up the second win of his career at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, taking $5,500 for his 25 laps of work.

Borden took the win ahead of Danny Dietrich, who put on a passing clinic after starting 17th in the field.

In the 25-lap URC Sprint main it was Josh Weller scoring the first oval win of his career.

Borden’s pace with the lead was halted on the second lap when the cars of Aaron Bollinger and Dylan Cisney tangled in the third turn.

Bollinger’s mount was destroyed.

Borden restarted ahead of Mark Smith when the green replaced the yellow but Brent Shearer soon got by Smith for second.

Shearer was riding the top groove while Borden preferred the inside lane and soon Shearer began biting into Borden’s lead as the race progressed.

And by lap seven Shearer was knocking on the door for control.

At that point Borden changed lanes around the big half-mile and went up top to begin pulling away as Smith retook the runner up spot.

Meanwhile, from the back of the pack, Danny Dietrich was blasting low and high, darting around the oval to pass cars at will at a blistering pace.

By lap 10, Dietrich was riding sixth in the field.

At the halfway point, Borden had Smith, Shearer, Freddie Rahmer and Tyler Ross in the top five.

As Borden circled the track with the lead, Rahmer battled with Ross first and then Shearer before taking third with eight laps to go and Dietrich soon followed him into fourth.

The leader entered the backmarkers with five laps to go and Borden quickly got held up by cars racing for position just in front.

Smith was bearing down on Borden for the lead when another red flag appeared with four laps to go for seventh runner Alan Krimes who stopped on the track with a fire in the engine compartment.

Borden pulled away on the restart as Dietrich dispatched Rahmer before getting around Smith for second with a lap to go.

However Dietrich would come up one spot short thanks to time running out as Borden took the checkers some 2.5 seconds ahead at the finish.

Smith rode home third followed by Rahmer and Ross.

Sixth through 10th went to Brandon Rahmer, Justin Whittall, Lucas Wolfe, Shearer and Cisney.

Heats went to Borden and Shearer.

Borden drew the third starting spot for the URC main and was eyeing a sweep of the night before his plans went awry as the field began the second lap.

Tyler Brehm entered the first turn with the lead only to see Derek Hauck make contact with the back of his car, turning him sideways as he flew sideways up across the speedway.

Doug Hammaker blasted into the scene, dislodging Hauck but also collecting Borden against the outside rail.

Hauck got the point for the restart followed by Steve Buckwalter, Nash Ely and Josh Weller.

Buckwalter drove by for control when action restarted and threatened to pull away but Weller motored into second on lap six and began tracking him down.

It took seven more laps until Weller caught the leader, using the inside lane to run him down and then drive by.

Buckwalter seemed to find some speed after getting passed up for control and was coming back on Weller for the lead, running to Weller’s outside in the third and fourth turns when a spun car in the fourth corner forced a yellow flag.

The caution period settled the pace and cleared the track for Weller who made good on the opportunity to get the $1,500 victory.

Buckwalter was just under two seconds back at the finish followed by Derek Locke.

Borden blasted back to the front after restarting at the rear to end up fourth.

Hauck rode home fifth.

Sixth through 10th went to Lucas Wolfe, Nash Ely, Jason Shultz, Jake Karklin and Cody Fletcher.

Heats for the 32-car field went to Adam Carberry, Shultz, Hauck and Buckwalter with Mike Thompson scoring the consolation race.

Jacobs gets late race 410 AFCS victory at Attica; Shiels perfect in late models; Logan Riehl earns exciting 1st career 305 win



Friday, April 29, 2022

By Brian Liskai

ATTICA, Ohio – Defending Attica Raceway Park 410 track champion Trey Jacobs has lamented the struggles his team has had late in the races during the first part of the year. The team proved they can adjust and the Shreve, Ohio driver got by teenager Ryan Timms coming to the white flag to earn his third career win at “Ohio’s Finest Racing” speed plant Friday, April 29 on Smith Paving Night.

The win – worth $4,000 thanks to Big D’s Pizza of Clyde – will help Jacobs edge closer to Cole Macedo (who finished third Friday) in the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series Presented by the Baumann Auto Group standings.

“It got a little hairy there in lapped traffic. I was really good on the bottom and I felt like I could just kind of maintain on the top. Lapped cars were holding their line but they were running the bottom in my line so I tried to move around at the wrong time and got dicing it up there with the 18 car (Macedo and Tyler Gunn). Luckily it seemed like lapped car moved out of the way and I was able to track down…that young Timms kid is one hell of a race car driver. I’m telling you what, 15 years old to come here first time ever and do that is pretty damn impressive,” said Jacobs beside his Integrity Truck and Auto Sales of Bucyrus, Performance Foot and Ankle, VIB-ISO, Dac Vitamins & Minerals, Tim Yerian backed #3J.

“We’ve been really good unloading out of the box we just seem to not making the right adjustments by A-main time. Part of it is I gained a little bit of wait on my left hand ring figure during the off –season so I think I’m turning the wheel a little too much…I’m left hand down on the wheel so we just had to compensate for that. Once we got that dialed in we’re good to go know,” joked Jacobs of his recent marriage.

Three time and defending UMP Late Model track champion Devin Shiels held off challenges from JR Gentry to score his second straight win in the Dirt Nerds Podcast/ Late Models. It’s the 12th career win for Shiels at Attica, moving him to sixth on the all-time division win list.

“I knew Gentry and Markham (Ryan) were going to be fast on the top so I moved around a lot to see which was better…I couldn’t make up  my mind. This car really likes the slick and the dirt has grip when you get here and then slicks off when the sprints run 30 laps. This car just comes alive. It was a total team effort. Jason pretty much changed the whole car after the heat race and went back to what we had last week and improved on it,” said Shiels beside his Magic Fountain Auto Wash, Rally’s Hamburgers, Dundee Products, Banshee Graphics, Salenbein Trucking & Excavating; Banshee Graphics backed #51.

Logan Riehl and Larry Kingseed Jr. literally ran side by side, nose to tail the entire 25 laps of the Fremont Fence 305 Sprints A-main. When the checkers flew Riehl, in only his third year of sprint car racing, won his very first sprint car feature by .207 seconds over Kingseed. In fact, the barn-burner feature saw only .63 seconds separate the top four – Riehl, Kingseed, Paul Weaver and Jamie Miller –  at the checkers.

“I don’t really know what to say….this is incredible. I seen Larry right there and he was with me the entire time. I just try to make the best 25 laps I can and see where we stand at the end of it. It feels pretty good to be in this division. There’s a lot of competition and about 10 to 15 cars can win every night. I have to thank my mom and dad, my brothers, my girlfriend, Riehl Custom Fab and Chassis Repair, A & M Transport, Cornerstone Farms, Bascom Diesel Supply, Ely Clouse Machining, Milligan’s Irish Pub and RPK Enterprises,” said Riehl.

Riehl’s win should move him from fifth to the top three in the NAPA Auto Parts of Bryan AFCS Presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales points.

Ryan Timms jumped into the early lead of the 30-lap Callie’s Performance Products 410 Sprint A-main with Kyle Capodice and Tyler Gunn battling for second with Jacobs and Stuart Brubaker locked into a battled for fourth. Following a lap three caution, Timms pulled away  while the battle for second between Capodice and Gunn heated up.

Timms raced into lapped traffic by the seventh circuit with Gunn taking second and a lap later Jacobs grabbing third. Heavy lapped traffic came into play by the 10th circuit and Gunn and Jacobs battled hard for second. Jacobs finally took the spot on lap 16 as the leaders were again mired in traffic. Gunn retook the runner-up spot on lap 21 only to see Jacobs regain the position a lap later.

Meanwhile Jacobs, Gunn and Cole Macedo closed on Timms. With five laps to go Jacobs was right on the rear bumper of Timms. Coming to the white flag Jacobs rocked off the bottom to grab the lead and drove to the win over Timms, Macedo, DJ Foos and Gunn.

Justin Chance jumped into the lead of the 25-lap UMP Late Model A-main but a hand full of cautions early on kept the field close. On a lap two restart Shiels drove around Chance to take the lead and a lap later JR Gentry took second while Chance was left to deal with a challenge from Ryan Markham.

Shiels and Gentry ran nose to tail until a caution with seven laps to go. On the restart Gentry tried to drive around Shiels but couldn’t make the pass. Shiels drove to the win over Gentry, Markham, Chance and Larry Bellman.

While Riehl took the lead in the 25-lap Fremont Fence 305 A-main, Larry Kingseed didn’t let him get away. A couple of cautions in the first 10 laps kept the field close. Riehl and Kingseed ran side-by-side lap after lap with Paul Weaver and Jamie Miller staying close. Coming to the checkers several lapped cars were right in front of the top four. Riehl was able to pick his spot and drove to the narrow win over Kingseed, Weaver, Miller and Matt Foos.

Attica Raceway Park will be back in action Friday, May 6 for Stillwater Metal/Bazell Race Fuels Night with the UMP late models battling for $3,000 to win. The 305 sprints and dirt trucks will join in the action.

Hunter Schuerenberg bests the All Stars in Lernerville Speedway return


SARVER, Pa. (April 29, 2022) - For the first time in 2022, and for the second time in his career, “Hunter Percent” Hunter Schuerenberg is a Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event winner, doing so in exciting fashion at the famed Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pennsylvania. Schuerenberg’s first-ever All Star victory occurred on July 9 a season ago, winning at Stateline Speedway in Busti, New York.

Utilizing the outside-pole position by way of dash result, Schuerenberg spent most of the first half of the 30-lap program chasing Buch Motorsports’ Justin Peck, eventually using heavy lapped traffic to his advantage to track down the Monrovia, Indiana, native, by lap 11. Racing nose to tail at the flagstand, Schuerenberg made his move the following circuit, using momentum at the exit of turn two to slingshot by Peck down the backstretch. Their near nose-to-tail battle would continue on, but a caution on lap 14 would give Schuerenberg the break that he needed, bringing down a wall of slower traffic.

From that point forward, Schuerenberg remained in control, surviving periods of additional traffic, which made its return in the final six circuits, and a few late surges by Benton Ridge, Ohio’s Greg Wilson to earn the $6,000 payday. Tyler Courtney slipped by Wilson for second in the final corner, followed by Justin Peck, and a hard charging Logan Wagner, who climbed 16 spots to finish fifth.

“I’m so proud of my crew. We’ve decided to give them a little bit more responsibility this year. I’m not calling any shots on this race car. They have the work ethic to go along with what we need. They may not have everything figured out like a super experienced team, but the work they put in shows,” Hunter Schuerenberg said in Lernerville Speedway victory lane, ace of the Vermeer Motorsports/Logan Contracting/No. 55 sprint car. “They are constantly studying their notes and working on ways to make the car better…and they tell me what I can do better. I think it's all the difference. And I can’t thank the Vermeers enough. They are the ones who took a chance on me in the first place.”

Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio, is next on the weekend agenda, set to host the All Stars on Saturday evening, April 30. Like Lernerville Speedway, Sharon Speedway has a long history with America’s Series, hosting the winged warriors on 109 occasions with the most recent on July 10, 2021. Spencer Bayston, since making the leap to full-time World of Outlaws competition, is the most recent Sharon Speedway All Star winner, piloting the Sam McGhee Motorsports No. 11 to an $8,000 Lou Blaney Memorial victory over Cory Eliason and Bill Balog. In total, Sharon’s northeast Ohio complex will host the All Star Circuit of Champions on four occasions in 2022, two of which back-to-back (Sharon Nationals) over Labor Day weekend.

COLOSSEUM CRUSHER: Logan Schuchart Dominates Bristol Bash for First World of Outlaws Win of 2022 Shark Racing #1S Completes Perfect Night Worth $25,000 at Tennessee 1/2-Mile


BRISTOL, TN - April 30, 2022 - Last year, Bristol Motor Speedway crushed Logan Schuchart's hopes of a prestigious win as the white flag waved; this year, Logan Schuchart crushed the competition for a redemption-filled victory and a $25,000 payday.

The DuraMAX, Team Drydene #1S was the class of the field on Friday night as the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series returned to The Last Great Colosseum to kickoff a Bristol Bash doubleheader. Schuchart recorded the second clean sweep of the 2022 season with the first occurrence coming earlier this month from none other than his Shark Racing teammate, Jacob Allen.

The Hanover, PA native set Slick Woody's QuickTime, topped his NOS Energy Drink Heat Race, ruled the MicroLite Dash, and then outran Aaron Reutzel in the opening stages of the 25-lap Feature. Schuchart officially crossed the finish line with a 1.369-second advantage, but his lead had ballooned to nearly 3+ seconds at one point.

It was a much-needed confidence boost and a sigh of relief for Schuchart and the Shark camp, who finally got their first win of the season in the 16th event. They started the season with an average finish of 10.6 and zero podium finishes in the first 12 shows, but now they're on fire with four-straight top-fives and a recent average of 3.0.

With his win, Schuchart officially passed his grandfather and team owner, Bobby Allen, for 20th on the All-Time Win List with his 31st career World of Outlaws win. Tomorrow, he'll have a chance to do what David Gavel did last year and score a clean sweep of the Bristol Bash weekend.

"It's just nice to be back in victory lane itself, let alone at a place like this," Schuchart told media afterward. "We rolled out of the box feeling great after yesterday and just wanted to make some small tweaks today, and they worked perfectly. The first part of this year was a real struggle, but we've been gaining momentum.

"I don't want to say we've figured it out, there will still be some struggles, but if you look at our recent runs we're shining at places we haven't before. We're getting back to where we should. It's tough with as many good teams as we have out here, you can second guess yourself in a heartbeat. I'm just thankful and fortunate to be winning races with my grandpa and the rest of my family. It's special."

Clute, TX native Aaron Reutzel extended his excellent Bristol Motor Speedway resume with his third podium finish in his third start at the Tennessee 1/2-mile. He led the opening lap of the 25-lapper and engaged in nailbiting wheel-to-wheel combat with Schuchart, but ultimately slid high and admittedly lost his shot at the win.

His second-place finish in the Ridge & Sons Racing, Mobil 1 #8 followed up his third and second-place runs from last year in the Roth Motorsports #83. The multi-time All Star Circuit of Champions has found a knack for the speed plant and looks to be a favorite for Saturday's $25,000 finale.

"For some reason, I just really like these big 1/2-miles where you can run it straight and move all around," Reutzel remarked. At places like Port Royal, Knoxville, and here, I just feel so comfortable. Unloading with such a stout car is the first piece of the puzzle and we've done that two years in a row with two different teams and two different crew chiefs."

It wasn't just Kraig Kinser's first podium or his first top-five of the season, it was even his first top-10 of 2022 as he drove the #11K to a third-place effort. The run tied him with his legendary father, Steve Kinser, for the best family finish at Bristol Motor Speedway.

"To me, the history of the sport is just as big as what is going on today," Kinser commented on matching his dad with a third. "It's an accomplishment for sure. I wish I would've run second, that would be one of the few times I beat him in a category. I guess we'll just have to do that tomorrow."

The Jason Johnson Racing #41 of Carson Macedo and Big Game Motorsports #2 of David Gravel closed out the top five on Friday night. Rounding out the top-10 were Sheldon Haudenschild, Kyle Larson, Spencer Bayston, Brock Zearfoss, and Brad Sweet.

NOS NOTEBOOK (Bristol Motor Speedway, 4/29/23)
Logan Schuchart's 31st career World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series victory moves him beyond his grandfather and team owner, Bobby Allen, for 20th on the All-Time Win List.

Friday marked the second "perfect night" of the 2022 season with both coming from Shark Racing stars Jacob Allen at Lake Ozark Speedway and now Logan Schuchart at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Schuchart's lap of 13.831 seconds in My Place Hotels Qualifying made him the 12th driver through 16 races to claim the Slick Woody's QuickTime Award. He circled the 0.533-mile oval at an average speed of 136.909 MPH. Schuchart (93rd career), Carson Macedo (65th career), and Aaron Reutzel (37th career) split NOS Energy Drink Heat Race wins.

Watertown, CT native David Gravel made his 700th Feature start with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series. He'll have a chance at claiming his 500th career top-10 finish in Saturday's Bristol Bash finale.

UP NEXT (Sat) - The Bristol Bash concludes tomorrow, Saturday, April 29 with another doubleheader headlined by the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series and World of Outlaws CASE Construction Equipment Late Model Series. Another $25,000 payday is on the line for the fastest gladiator at Bristol Motor Speedway. Fans can BUY TICKETS HERE, or watch every lap LIVE on DIRTVision.

York County Racing Club Night Set With Three-Division Show Plus Australian Pursuit

By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway – PORT ROYAL, PA – (April 13, 2022) York County Racing Club Night at Port Royal Speedway takes place this Saturday, April 16, with a three-division spectacular featuring the Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Cars, the Krill Recycling, LLC Super Late Models and the Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Models. Added to the night's festivities will be a 10-lap $1000 to win Australian Pursuit event for the Super Late Models.

Gates open at 3:00pm, while racing is set to kick off at 6:00pm

GA- $20, Students- $10, Pits- $30

Four-time defending track champion Logan Wagner has found his way to Victorian Signs and Graphics Victory Lane the past two weekends in the Weikert's Livestock 410 Sprint Car division. However, it's still one-time 2022 winner Anthony Macri, sitting on top of the season point standings with a 85-point advantage over Wagner. Mike Wagner (-120), Lucas Wolfe (-150) and Jeff Halligan (-165) round out the rest of the top five.

Gregg Satterlee picked up $10,000 last weekend with a huge victory for the locals over the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series. However, it's been all Colton Flinner this season in Krill Recycling Super Late Model competition as he's scored three consecutive victories in weekly Super Late Model competition. Flinner leads by 90 points over Gary Stuhler followed by Kyle Lee (-180), Austin Berry (-185) and Mike Lupfer (-185)

In honor of long-time scorer at the Speedway, Glenn Stitt, the series will also take part in a special 10-lap Australian Pursuit event as well. The nostalgic event uses a format in that if a driver is passed at any point on the track, they are eliminated from contention and will head to the pits. The last driver remaining at the completion of 10 laps will be crowned the winner and earn $1000 for his efforts. Second-place will pay $500, third-place will pay $400, fourth will pay $300 and fifth will pay $200. Sixth through tenth will receive $100.

The top ten finishers of the night's 25-lap feature event in the division will be eligible to compete for the added cash and we will invert the field completely and start in single-file.

Finally, the Selinsgrove Ford Limited Late Models will take to the track for their third event of the 2022 season and it will be Devin Hart entering the night as the most recent winner in the division. Hart sits second in the season point standings behind the division's only other winner this season, Dillan Stake, by a margin of 15 points. Todd Snook (-45), Taylor Farling (-60) and Shawn Shoemaker (-70) make up the rest of the top five.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR: The Greatest Show on Dirt Invades I-55 This Weekend Brad Sweet & Sheldon Haudenschild Have Won 8 of Last 10 in Pevely

PEVELY, MO - April 13, 2022 - The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series visits one of the most consistently exciting venues in all of America this weekend - Pevely, MO's Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55.

In preparation for the intense Ironman 55 (August 5-6), The Greatest Show on Dirt is given a spring doubleheader to get the juices flowing at the 1/4-mile bullring. The winged warriors will be joined by the POWRi Midgets this Friday & Saturday, April 15-16 with another open-wheel-only pairing for race fans.

BUY TICKETS: Package - Friday - Saturday
Here's what to watch for this weekend:

TWO HORSE RACE: Lately, it's been all about Brad Sweet and Sheldon Haudenschild at I-55. The two superstars have combined to win eight of the last 10 World of Outlaws events in Pevely with each scoring four wins along the way. Both drivers, who each swept a weekend at the track last year, enter this go-round with a chance to leave as the winningest driver in Pevely.

Aboard the Kasey Kahne Racing, NAPA Auto Parts #49, Sweet brings a 40-point lead into the weekend as he continues to command the standings with his fourth consecutive Series championship on the line in 2022. The Grass Valley, CA native only has one win to his credit through 13 races but looks to change that this weekend as he backs up his spring sweep of last year's I-55 event. The Big Cat has finished on the podium in eight of the last 10 races at I-55 and holds an impressive 5.5 average finish since becoming a full-time Outlaw in 2014.

Aboard the Stenhouse Jr. / Marshall Racing, NOS Energy Drink #17, Haudenschild comes into the weekend as the reigning Ironman 55 champion. After winning two of the first four races, the Wooster, OH native has slipped to a 9.2 average finish over the last nine races as he remains fifth in the standings. He'll have a golden chance to get back on track and earn a Series-best third win this weekend at arguably his best track on tour.

BACK ON TRACK: For four championship hopefuls, this weekend's I-55 double offers the opportunity to return to form and collect some crucial momentum as the Series continues to head east.

David Gravel of Watertown, CT rebounded properly from a 13th-place run at Devil's Bowl with his sixth podium of the season at Lake Ozark last week. In four appearances at I-55 last year in the Big Game Motorsports #2, DG finished 8th, 6th, 3rd & 6th. He's hoping to nab his first Pevely win since 2016, but more importantly, get that third win of 2022 and build some confidence in his camp.

Carson Macedo of Lemoore, CA has fallen back to third in the standings following a tough 16th-place effort the Jason Johnson Racing #41 at the Jason Johnson Classic. Historically, I-55 has been kryptonite for Macedo with only two top-five finishes (both 5th) through 11 starts at the bullring. The good news, though, is that both of those results came last year with Philip Dietz on the wrenches, so the 25-year-old is certainly finding speed in Pevely.

Donny Schatz of Fargo, ND was trending upward with back-to-back podiums of third and second before a 12th-place finish at Lake Ozark on Saturday. The 10-time Series champion is without a doubt the most experienced driver at I-55, starting 50+ Features with two wins and 43 top-10 finishes on his resume. He was on his way to a third win at the track last year when a mechanical issue stopped his Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing, Ford Performance, Carquest Auto Parts #15.

James McFadden of Alice Springs, NT, AUS is on a rollercoaster ride with recent runs either providing top-five results or finishes completely outside the top-10. The Roth Motorsports #83 pilot currently sits sixth in the standings with his first win of the year still on the line entering this weekend. In the Series' most recent appearance at I-55, the Australian nabbed a career-best second at the track in the Ironman 55 last August.

SPRING PEAKING: For another four full-time World of Outlaws competitors, they're entering I-55 on the heels of a season-best performance and looking to get a streak going.

Jacob Allen of Hanover, PA brought a smile to Sprint Car fans worldwide when he returned to victory lane at Lake Ozark on Saturday. The Shark Racing #1A pilot did it in spectacular fashion, completing a pass on Brady Bacon with three laps left and earning his second career victory in the form of a perfect night. It ended a 104-race drought since his first win in 2020, and his speed throughout all of 2022 says it could be much quicker until his third win comes.

Logan Schuchart of Hanover, PA followed his Shark Racing teammate with a fourth-place finish, matching his season-high in the DuraMAX, Drydene Performance Products #1S. It hasn't been a dream start to the season for the former championship runner-up, but Schuchart and his crew haven't stopped putting in the work. I-55 this weekend could be a turning point considering his recent success at the track with 10 top-five finishes in his last 12 starts.

Spencer Bayston of Lebanon, IN has shown immense speed all season long in the CJB Motorsports #5. The leading Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year contender has been on the verge of winning his first race of 2022 for more than a month now, but things just haven't fallen into place. They almost did on Saturday night when the 23-year-old banked a season-best second-place at Lake Ozark. He's a former POWRi Midget winner at I-55 but owns a World of Outlaws best of 9th at the track.

Brock Zearfoss of Jonestown, PA equaled his season-high of sixth-place on Saturday at Lake Ozark thanks to another NOS Energy Drink Heat Win and DIRTvision Fast Pass Dash appearance. He's excited for a return to I-55 this weekend, a place where he earned one of his five World of Outlaws top-five finishes in May of 2020.

Phillips Records First Top 10 of the Season During Debut at Oklahoma Sports Park


Inside Line Promotions - ADA, Okla. (April 12, 2022) - Elizabeth Phillips ranks sixth in the AmeriFlex OCRS IMCA Sprint Cars championship standings a few weeks into the season.

This marks the first year that Phillips is focusing on winged sprint cars and the growing pains are leading to success, including the first top-10 run of the season last Saturday at Oklahoma Sports Park.

"I feel like I'm starting to be able to give feedback better," she said. "That helps the team when I can really tell them what I'm feeling. Also, having Shane Vandervliet help us is very beneficial. I really enjoy working with him."

Phillips finished where she started - fifth - in a heat race last Saturday during her debut at Oklahoma Sports Park. She then rallied from 14 th to ninth in the A Main for her third career top 10 with the series.

"I think we struggled a little bit at the beginning of the night," she said. "With it being a new track I hadn't been to before that was expected. We actually fell back at the start of the feature not being able to see anything because it was so dusty. Once we got some green flag laps in I felt pretty comfortable.

"It felt really good to get a top 10. We needed to finish that race and come out above the eight ball. That helped us move up a little in the points. I'm looking toward finishing races and then hopefully starting higher in the A Mains than we have."

Phillips has made the main event during all six series races this season, earning top 15s at Red Dirt Raceway in Meeker, Okla.; at Creek County Speedway in Sapulpa, Okla.; and at Thunderbird Speedway in Muskogee, Okla., prior to Saturday's season-best outing.

"Being sprint car focused this year we're taking it more serious and learning that every little thing counts," she said. "I can't really complain sitting sixth in points. It's really early in the season and I think we'll get better throughout the year."

The tentative race plan this weekend is to run a local event at Creek County Speedway on Saturday.


March 4 - Red Dirt Raceway in Meeker, Okla. - Heat race: 6 (8); B Main: 3 (3); Feature: 14 (19).

March 5 - Red Dirt Raceway in Meeker, Okla. - Heat race: 7 (8); B Main: 2 (5); Feature: 17 (17).

March 26 - Lawton Speedway in Lawton, Okla. - Heat race: 5 (3); Feature: 17 (17).

Gravel Leads Big Game Motorsports to Podium at Jason Johnson Classic


Inside Line Promotions - ELDON, Mo. (April 12, 2022) - David Gravel captured his sixth podium result of the season last Saturday during the Jason Johnson Classic hosted by Lake Ozark Speedway.

The third-place run moved the Big Game Motorsports driver back into second place in the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series championship standings.

It was an efficient night for Gravel, who timed in fourth quickest in his group during qualifying.

"We were able to qualify good and put ourselves in position to get into the dash," he said. "We won our heat race and got a good pill draw for the dash. However, I ran over a rock on the track at the end of the heat race and that put a hole in the bottom of the oil pain. We had to change engines and that didn't give us much time to work on the setup. We didn't have time to think about our race car because we were thrashing to make it out for the next event."

Gravel finished fourth in the dash to garner the fourth starting position in the A Main.

"If you were really good you could make some stuff happen," he said. "We were good enough to maintain. About 10 or 15 laps into the feature it got right around the bottom and took rubber. We did what we could and was going to run fourth. Brady (Bacon) got a flat and we ended third. With three laps to go I could tell our right rear was going down and on the last lap the car didn't handle very good. I don't think it would have made another corner. It was good to have some good luck in that race so we could finish with a podium."

It marked the only race of the weekend as Friday's event at U.S. 36 Raceway near Osborn, Mo., rained out.

A doubleheader at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Mo., is on tap for the team this Friday and Saturday. Gravel scored a World of Outlaws win at the high-banked oval in 2016.

"I feel like we're very competitive there and always in the hunt," he said. "I'd like to get some more wins there. Hopefully we can qualify good and compete for a win each night."

Hagar Earns Win at Riverside International Speedway for Third Victory in Last Four Races


Inside Line Promotions - WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. (April 12, 2022) - Derek Hagar produced his third triumph of the season last Saturday at Riverside International Speedway, where he scored a victory for the third straight year.

The night was a work in progress for Hagar, who rallied from seventh to fourth in a heat race.

"We didn't do very good in the pill draw and set ourselves behind in the heat race," he said. "The track was one lane. Luckily, we got by a couple of cars on the start. That put us seventh in points."

Hagar lined up on the inside of the fourth row for the 25-lap main event.

"We got up to fourth pretty quick," he said. "As the track went away my car got better and I was able to maneuver to third. On a restart I got by Brad Bowden with 13 or 14 laps to go. We had another restart with about nine laps to go and I did a slide job on Tim Crawley to get the lead.

"We had a really good car and the race track played into our favor. We were able to capitalize on it. I feel pretty confident where we are at. Working out and being physically prepared helps a lot in terms of being able to stay in the seat. That is really what has helped step our program up this year."

Hagar rides the momentum into his World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series season debut this Friday and Saturday at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Mo.

"I'm looking forward to it," he said. "It's going to be a tough field. We need to get through qualifying and try to put ourselves in a good position. We need to put consistent laps together."

Hagar last raced at the high-banked track in 2018 when he ran into mechanical woes early in the night. His only previous World of Outlaws start at the track occurred in 2012 when he raced with a 360ci engine and placed 19th in the feature.


April 9 - Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark. - Heat race: 4 (7); Feature: 1 (7).

Sides Preparing for Elbows-Up Weekend in Pevely


Inside Line Promotions - ELDON, Mo. (April 12, 2022) - Jason Sides is heading to one of his favorite bullrings this weekend when Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Mo., welcomes the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series on Friday and Saturday.

"I've always enjoyed racing in Pevely," he said. "It can be a track where you pound the outside wall or hug the inside wall. When it's racy like that with multiple lanes it produces great racing. We've had some success there and we're looking for a solid weekend."

Sides won a World of Outlaws feature at the high-banked oval in October 2012 on a night when he ran two features. He was victorious during the make-up program from the spring before running third in the rain-delayed Ironman 55, which had been postponed since August.

"That was a fun night as we were a contender every time we were on the track," he said. "When you've had nights like that at a track it gives you extra confidence whenever you return even if it's been a while since you know you can be successful."

Sides hustled from 24th to 16th on the opening night before placing 10th the ensuing night at the track during this event last year.

Sides competed in the Jason Johnson Classic last Saturday at Lake Ozark Speedway. He timed in 11th quickest in his group before finishing where he started - sixth - in a heat race, which was only one position out of locking into the main event. Sides also battled for a transfer spot in the Last Chance Showdown before ending with a DNF.

Last Friday's race at U.S. 36 Raceway near Osborn, Mo., rained out.

"Hopefully this weekend goes a little better with the weather and on the track," Sides said. "The nice thing about racing in Missouri last week and this week is we're close to home."


April 9 - Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo. - Qualifying: 11; Heat race: 6 (6); B Main: DNF (4).

Port Royal Speedway to Hold Special $1000 to Win Australian Pursuit Event in Honor of Glenn Stitt


By- Justin Snyder

Port Royal Speedway – PORT ROYAL, PA – (April 12, 2022) Over the past decade, the Port Royal Speedway has rapidly grown to become one of the crown jewel racetracks in the entire country with jam-packed diverse schedules featuring the best dirt track racing has to offer.

With six consecutive promoter of the year awards courtesy of the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame being housed in the Speedway office, it would be easy to credit that meteoric rise to those working at the Speedway week in and week out and the promotional team the Speedway has established today.

However, the tradition that is Port Royal Speedway and the Speed Palace began long ago in September of 1938. Besides a four-year break in action during World War II from 1941-1945, the Speedway has continuously run weekly events for the Port Royal faithful and there have been many of names and faces over the years who have contibuted to the history and legacy of the track to get us where we are today.

Without their efforts and love of the track, the community and the sport, we are well aware that we would not be where we are today as an establishment. As the old saying goes, you've got to understand where you've been and how you got there, to ever know where it is that you're going.

One of those individuals was Glenn Stitt. Stitt served as the head scorer at the Port Royal Speedway from 1965-1985. An unheralded, yet important, position among many employees at the track, he pencil scored the first Tuscarora 50 ever held in 1968.

He also served as a car owner in the 60's and his son Ken Stitt drove in the late model division in the 70's and a year in sprint cars. He also had two grandsons (Ken Jr. and Steve) who drove Thunder Cars, Pro Stocks and late models over the years.

Upon moving away from the area, Glenn presented the Speedway with a detailed history of all racing events from past years that we were able to preserve and document. Because of his efforts and passion, future generations of race fans to come will have a road map to the past and an understanding of how it is that we got this far.

Truly a pioneer at the Speed Palace, his impact still resonates today with deep family roots and a passion for dirt track racing and the Port Royal Speedway. Glenn passed away at the age of 92 in December of 2020.

In an effort to recognize his contribution to our history and our future, the Speedway has joined forces with his family to host a special 10-lap Australian Pursuit event for the Krill Recyling Super Late Models this coming Saturday, April 16.

The old-time nostalgic event uses a format in that if a driver is passed at any point on the track, they are eliminated from contention and will head to the pits. The last driver remaining at the completion of 10 laps will be crowned the winner and earn $1000 for his eofforts. Second-place will pay $500, third-place will pay $400, fourth will pay $300 and fifth will pay $200. Sixth through tenth will receive $100.

The top ten finishers of the night's 25-lap feature event in the division will be eligible to compete for the added cash and we will invert the field completely and start in single-file.

While the family is unsure if Glenn ever scored an Australian Pursuit event during his time at the Speedway, they noted the event was among his favorites as a fan and they ran pursuit races in quarter midgets  in the 50's and mid 60's that he scored.

We encourage all fans to stick around after the late model feature event to witness this special event and we look forward to honoring the memory and legacy of Glenn Stitt!

Halligan Consistent and Inching Closer to Victory Confidence and Momentum Continue to Build


Port Royal, PA – April 12, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Never underestimate the value of back to back solid performances for a race team.  It’s proof one good result wasn’t a fluke.  It confirms correct decisions are being made.  Most of all, it brings confidence.  In motorsports, a confident driver behind the wheel can be more valuable than almost anything else.


Jeff Halligan is on exactly such a roll lately.  Saturday’s 4th place finish at Port Royal Speedway was his second consecutive top five finish, not to mention he has passed thirteen cars in recording three top-10 finishes this season.


April 9:  Open Wheel Madness / Port Royal Speedway / Port Royal, PA

     (27 cars, Qualifying 2nd, Heat 3rd, A-main 4th)


A chilly April afternoon saw 27 teams register to get their shot at the $5,000 winner’s share.  Time trials were completed in a group format, with three groups set by pill draw.


Halligan’s qualifying run as part of group two was somewhat eventful.  The Ephrata, PA driver completed a very quick first lap just before the engine on his Risser Motorsports / / Victory Auto of Lewistown / EMM Sales & Service / Jake’s Golf Carts, No.45 shut off unexpectedly, robbing him of a second lap that would likely have been even better.  Zeb Wise’s second lap knocked Halligan from the top of the chart by 0.062 seconds.


Upon his return pit-side, Halligan’s team immediately went to work and resolved the issue in plenty of time for Jeff to assume his starting spot inside row two for the second heat race.  He temporarily slipped back to 4th in the opening laps, but he was able to overtake Blane Heimbach to finish 3rd, just missing the redraw by one spot.


As the sun began to set, Halligan lined up 8th for the 25-lap feature event.  From the drop of the green, he began his workmanlike grind toward the front, climbing into 7th after five laps, then to 6th after ten laps.  Halligan was fast and battling with Zeb Wise for a spot in the top five when the red lights flashed on for T.J. Stutts, who was uninjured in the crash.


The late break in the action bunched the field with four laps remaining.  Halligan capitalized on the situation, clearing Wise for good to take 5th, then raced past Parker Price-Miller for the 4th spot as the main event drew to a close.


“We were really good tonight.  Each time I got by someone, I was able to track down the next guy, even in traffic.  I never had a chance to get in clean air to find out how good we really were, but I know we passed some really good cars“, a clearly energized Jeff Halligan said.


Halligan now sits 5th in the competitive season championship point standings at Port Royal Speedway.  The top five are only separated by 165 points.  To provide some context, a win is worth 350 points and there are still 25 races remaining in 2022.


“The car is really balanced well right now.  We just need to improve our starting spot to give ourselves a chance to be on the podium.  In two weeks, we have a big race here (at Port) with the All Stars, so we have been trying things the past few weeks.  We want to make sure we are ready for that race.  You have to be on your game for a race like that”, Halligan commented.


Up Next


Jeff and the Risser Motorsports team will return to Port Royal Speedway Saturday night, April 16th for the final tune-up for 410 sprint cars before the All Star Circuit of Champions roll into town for the $10,000 to win Keith Kauffman Classic at ‘The Speed Palace’ on April 23rd.

Dominic Scelzi Produces Second-Place Finish for Fourth Time This Season


Inside Line Promotions - TULARE, Calif. (April 11, 2022) - Dominic Scelzi earned his fourth second-place result of the season last Friday during a Kings of Thunder event at Thunderbowl Raceway.

Scelzi was a contender throughout the night as he timed in fifth quickest in qualifying to kick off the competition.

"We went out late in qualifying and ended up fifth, which I was pretty happy with," he said. "Then we started on the pole of a heat race and won it. We also won the dash."

Scelzi's heat race and dash victories placed him on the pole for the main event.

"They did a full rework on the track before the feature and it was pretty wide open for the first 20 laps," he said. "On the initial start the bottom wasn't the place to be. I fell to third before we got into turn one. It was impossible to pass. We ran right behind the top two for 15 laps. When the yellow came out the track was starting to get wider, but it was still wide open. I made a move to get to second after the restart. I hit a hole and fell back to third. Then I got back to second on a restart with three laps to go."

Scelzi's second-place run was his fifth top five of the season.

Saturday's King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series event at Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, Calif., was canceled because of extreme wind. The series is off until April 30 when Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, Calif., hosts the 10th annual David Tarter Memorial.

Scelzi is unsure of his racing plans during the next two weeks leading up to that event.


April 8 - Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, Calif. - Qualifying: 5; Heat race: 1 (1); Dash: 1 (2); Feature: 2 (1).


10 races, 0 wins, 5 top fives, 7 top 10s, 8 top 15s, 8 top 20s

Kaleb Johnson Competing in 410 and 360 Divisions Saturday During Knoxville Raceway Season Opener


Inside Line Promotions - SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (April 11, 2022) - Kaleb Johnson is planning on doing double duty this Saturday during the Knoxville Raceway season opener.

It will mark the 410ci winged sprint car debut at the track for Johnson, who will race weekly in the 360ci winged sprint car division at the dirt oval in Knoxville, Iowa.

"I've done double duty with a 360 and a 305, but not in a 410 and a 360 and not at Knoxville," he said. "I don't have high expectations for our 410 deal. The main reason I want to do that is for laps. And I think it will slow everything down in the 360. I'm hoping we have a good run in our 360. We have to qualify good and that sets up the rest of your night."

Johnson finished sixth in the 360 championship standings last season at Knoxville Raceway.

"I feel pretty confident," he said. "Last year we had some pretty good runs; just some bad luck and driver errors cost us. With a year and a half of racing experience there we have a good baseline. I feel like if you can qualify good, which we've been doing better at, it sets up the night for a decent finish."

Johnson noted this will be one of only a couple of nights of double duty this season.

"I plan to do it the first couple of weeks at Knoxville Raceway because that's our only race," he said. "Once we get into the heart of the season we'll hardly do it at all."
