Sides Scores Home Track Victory at I-30 Speedway Captures first victory of the season in front of hometown crowd

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - April 26, 2016 - With friends and family standing next to him in victory lane, Jason Sides exited his car after scoring the World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series win on Tuesday night at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark.

The victory, his first since night one of the Boothill Showdown at Dodge City Raceway Park in July 2015, was especially memorable for Sides, who is just over a two hour drive from his hometown of Bartlett, Tenn.

"I am glad everyone made it over from the Memphis, Tenn. area," Sides said. "I guess Pevely (Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55) is the next closest to home, but this is our home track now and I just appreciate everybody coming out on a Tuesday night."

In the closing laps of the 40-lap feature, Sides had to hold off a late race charge from the Big Game Tree Stands/Nyce Crete & Landis No. 5 of David Gravel, who had overcame a deficit of over a second to get to Sides' back bumper. Gravel, who tried a last lap dive bomb for the lead, came up just short and settled for a second-place finish.

"I thought we had something for him," Gravel said. "A couple more laps with those lapped cars and we maybe could've gotten him. But we will take a second, it was a good run for us and we will see what happens in the future.

"We were just trying to do some things different. Sometimes people get too tentative and just run around the bottom, so you just got to keep your momentum up and keep your wing speed up."

Added third place finisher Daryn Pittman on Sides' home track victory:

"I was probably Jason's biggest fan there the last four laps cheering him on. I knew this would be a pretty big win for him, obviously being from close to here, and one of his home tracks. Pretty cool to see him win in front of all the people he has here - his friends and family."

To start the night, Gravel's CJB Motorsports teammate and World of Outlaws champion, Sammy Swindell, set quick-time at the track he has won at three times in series action: twice in 1981 and again in 1992.

Swindell continued his early-night dominance as he led every lap of his heat race and easily earned a spot in the dash.

The invert draw proved to be unlucky for Swindell, as he had to start at the rear of the six-car field following an invert of six. To make matters worse, Swindell eventually lost a motor on the opening laps of the eight-lap dash, and had to take his car to the pits where his team hastily started replacing the motor for the feature.

Oklahoma driver, Brady Bacon, won the dash, which gave him the best view of the green flag for the feature. Unfortunately for Bacon, he lost the lead to the King Racing Products/East Coast Logistics No. 7S of Sides on the opening lap, as the second-place starter easily rocketed to the top spot.

Sides dominated the feature as he led all 40 laps, the victory did not come easy for the 43-year-old driver. Multiple cautions early in the feature never allowed the leader to build up a lead, but also kept Sides from encountering heavy lapped traffic at the 1/4-mile track.

Sides held off challenges from Bacon on the early restarts, then had to fight off challenges from Pittman in the No. 9 Great Clips/Sage Fruit car, who had started third and stayed glued to the front of the field all race long.

Pittman eventually lost the runner-up position to Gravel on a late-race restart, as Gravel jumped from fifth to second in one lap.

"The caution flags hurt and helped, I hated the restarts but it kept us out of lapped traffic," Sides said. "I didn't know [David Gravel] was out there in the closing laps. I saw Daryn [Pittman] on the restarts but I never knew that [David] Gravel got by him on the restart.

"That's good for him, but I am just happy we got the win here. It's as close as we get to home, and I love this place!"

Gravel tried everything he could to rattle Sides for the lead, but Sides held firm at the front of the field, as Gravel settled for second, his first podium finish since Bakersfield (Calif.) Speedway on April 15.

"You can't complain with second," Gravel said. "We had a really good car there early, it got tight and scared me a little bit, but I got a few more laps under me and got more confident.

"We got a little free in one and two on those last three laps. We had something there but came up just a little bit short. It really would've been good to get a win there. My buddy Tyler back home got in a real bad car accident and he's still in a coma, so we were trying to get a win here for him but we will get one soon."

Pittman continued his recent podium domination, as he picked up his fourth top-three finish in the last four races.

"It was a good race, we kept making gains on our car all night," Pittman said. "This is a track I have never had a lot of success at, so we were able to run up front and contend for the win.

"That last restart we kind of got pinched on the bottom and just didn't get a good start and got beat, and then [David] Gravel got by us. The car just went away on us a little bit at the end, but all-in-all a great night for our Great Clips team. We will take third and go on to Friday. [Salina Highbanks Speedway] is a really cool track and one that I look forward to going to and hopefully we will be able to improve a few spots there."

The World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series make their annual return to north eastern Oklahoma, as they travel to Salina Highbanks Speedway on Friday, April 29. For ticket purchasing options and event information visit

Weikert Memorial News From Port Royal Speedway

May 28, 29 & 30 Port Royal Weikert Memorial Money And Formats Announced ~

Sprint Car Extravaganza Offers Over $75,000 In 410-Sprint Purses Alone!

Super late models, URC Sprints and more also slated to take part in action



PORT ROYAL, Pa. The upcoming three-day Bob Weikert Memorial sprint car racing extravaganza sponsored by Packers Concessions at Port Royal Speedway slated for May 28, 29 and 30 is now just over one month away!

 And details regarding the highly-lucrative 2016 event for sprints, late models and URC Sprints that encompasses the Memorial Day holiday weekend has just been released.

The three-day program for the 410 sprint cars will culminate on Monday afternoon when the Weikert Champion is crowned based on cumulative points accrued during the three-day event.

But before any champion can be crowned, a ton of racing action will be spun off with an equally impressive ton of money up for grabs!

A conservative total of the three-day 410 sprint car main event purses alone has the prestigious event paying out over $75,000 to the open wheelers in honor of one of the greatest sprint car owners ever to be known across the nation and around the world.

The Weikert Memorial 410 sprints will compete in the now traditional Fallen Heroes Championship on Saturday, May 28 featuring a 30-lap main paying $5,000 to win and $400 to start.

Passing points awarded from qualifying events will be used to align the main event starting grid.

The super late models will race in a 25-lap Fallen Heroes Championship as well on May 28, paying $2,000 to win and $200 to start.

Action then swings to Sunday night, May 29 when the Weikert Memorial sprints spin off time trials to set heat grids before moving on to a 35-lap feature paying a whopping $10,000 to win and $500 just to start.

The URC Sprints will also be part of the Sunday program, competing in a 25-lap feature paying $2,000 to win and $200 to start.

Special bonuses of $300, $200 and $100 will be paid to the highest finishing 358 sprint cars that race in the URC main event.

 And after Sunday, less than a day later, the whole weekend of sprint car mania culminates with an afternoon program for the Weikert Memorial sprints paying a minimum of $4,000 to win in a 25-lap main.

And after the dust settles, the three-day Weikert Memorial Champion will be crowned and a five-position point fund worth nearly $9,000 will be paid out with the title holder himself going home with $3,000.

In the event of only two events being completed due to weather, a two-day point fund worth more than $6,000 will be distributed.

All three events have a posted $200 Hard Charger Award up for grabs with the Saturday and Sunday Hard Charger earning a guaranteed starting spot in the following days main event.

Tow money for all 410-sprint non-qualifiers in each program is also up for grabs in the amount of $100.

Mondays program also offers Central Pa Legends racing and action for the PA mini stocks.

 More details about this exciting and growing event at Port Royal Speedway will be forthcoming.

 Campsites are available for the huge weekend with information available at the speedway office and on the oval website.

Danny Dietrich Uses Late Pass to Win Ray Tilley Classic at Selinsgrove Speedway

SELINSGROVE, Pa. (April 24, 2016) - “Double-D” Danny Dietrich ended the current Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions win streak in Central Pennsylvania at two victories on Sunday evening by capturing the Ray Tilley Classic at Selinsgrove Speedway. For Dietrich, it was a sixth career Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions victory and his first series win during competition at Selinsgrove. Dietrich, who started on the outside of the front row, earned his spot in victory lane in dramatic fashion; driving under leader Dave Blaney with less than five circuits remaining. The driver of the Gary Kauffman Racing, Sandoe’s Fruit Market, No. 48 withstood a total of four cautions during the main event, including red flag conditions on the initial start, and a fuel stop just before the halfway mark to clinch the $5,000, Ray Tilley Classic top prize.

“Dave (Blaney) was really good early, and I just wasn’t,” explained Danny Dietrich. “We made some adjustments during the open red that made all of the difference in the world. This feels really good. He (Blaney) was long gone at the beginning; I couldn’t even see him. I just need to thank my guys again for all of their hard work these last few months, as well as a long list of others who put a lot of effort into this race team. I just couldn’t do it without them.”

Despite not taking command officially until lap 28, Danny Dietrich battled inside the top-three the entire feature program. “Double-D” raced in the third spot for the first handful of circuits before the main event’s first yellow flag was displayed on lap five for a slowing Chad Kemenah. Kemenah, who was racing in the runner-up position, would go pit-side and not return, surrendering his position to Danny Dietrich. Meanwhile, Dave Blaney controlled the pace on the very top edge of the speedway, opening to a near-six second lead during various segments of the main event.

Dietrich’s ride in the runner-up spot would not go unchallenged; chased and passed by Kraig Kinser during the lap five restart, all before regaining the second position on lap eight. The battle between Kinser and Dietrich would last for several circuits until the event’s next yellow flag appeared on lap 13, ultimately resulting in the main event’s lone fuel stop.

Action resumed with Dave Blaney continuing his fast pace at the front of the field. Danny Dietrich chased the former World of Outlaws champion during the next dozen circuits before the final caution appeared on lap 25, setting up for what turned out to be a dramatic takeover. On lap 28, Dietrich pulled even with the “Buckeye Bullet,” eventually charging ahead of the familiar No. 71M. “Double-D” would go on to score the victory by nearly one second.

“I really didn’t know he was there, I thought we were fine,” said Dave Blaney. “My guys told me I had a pretty good lead, so I tried to drive those first three laps after that last caution as hard as I could, but he drove right up beside me and by me. I was really surprised. It’s unfortunate to lose it at the end. Regardless, we had a really good night.”

“I knew it was just a matter of time,” said Dietrich. “I could feel there was a little patch of rubber in three and four, as well as a little bit of moisture in the bottom of one and two. You had to hit them just right. You can’t lose any speed at this place. I think my guys were telling me to go to the top, but I didn’t want to give up on the bottom. I wouldn’t have any room to drive around him if I went to the top. I just want to thank everyone for coming out on a Sunday night and supporting this race. Great crowd on hand tonight and we all really appreciate it.”

The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions will continue their 2016 campaign on Saturday evening, April 30, with a return to the Atomic Speedway in Chillicothe, Ohio. The rescheduled program, originally intended to be the Arctic Cat All Star point season opener on Saturday, April 2, will include an appearance by the Ohio Sprint Car Series (OSCS), setting up an ASCoC/OSCS duel in southern Ohio. The Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (B.O.S.S.) non-wing sprint cars will also be on the evening card, giving fans an ultimate open wheel experience.

Updated news and information regarding the Arctic Cat All Star program at Atomic Speedway on Saturday, April 30, will be available online at

By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway
YORK HAVEN, PA 4/23/16
After sitting out much of the 2015 racing season after suffering a broken arm and elbow at another speedway, Wellsville racer Scott Geesey returned to winning form Saturday night at Susquehanna Speedway.

Geesey came from his ninth starting spot to earn his first win of the year in the 25-lap Credit Connection Auto Sales Super Sportsman feature. Geesey became the third different winner in four events this season at the speedway.

The 25 lap Sportsman event was marred by two separate multi-car crashes on the first lap. Seven cars were involved.

Troy Rhome led lap one before yielding to Chad Smith, who led the next two laps. Paul Miller became the next race leader, also leading two laps before Chad Smith took control and led for two more laps before Geesey arrived on the scene to make what turned out to be  the race-winning pass on lap seven.

Geesey then held the point to take the checkered flag aboard his Credit Connection Auto Sales/Silver Lake Bistro and Tavern/Kreitzer Excavating/Thomans LLC/Shetron Equipment #41.

One -time season winner Rich Eichelberger, of Dillsburg came from 16th to finish in the runner-up spot with current point leader Russ Mitten of Newville earning the Hard Charger award after starting back in the 20th position and finishing third. Rounding out the top five were early racer leaders Smith and Miller as Scott Dellinger, Steve Wilbur, two-time winner Gregg Foster, Teddy Thomas and Rick Barr completed the top 10 finishers.

Doug Dodson, Chad Smith and Steve Wilbur won heats for the 29 Super Sportsman. Foster won the consolation. Dodson scratched from the feature event after his machine suffered mechanical woes.

Jimmy Combs grabbed the lead on the first lap of the 20-lap Street Stock feature and led the entire distance to post his first win of the season over Scott Thunberg, Eric Tripp, Bob Scott, Jr., and 11th starter Dalton Frye.

Walt Lemmon, Combs, Doug Hoffman and Craig Morgan were heat race winners for the 32-car field as Dustin Hollinger topped the consolation.

After scratching from his heat race, going home to retrieve a back-up car, Tim O’Sheehan started 17th and last in Road Warrior feature and blasted through the field, taking the lead with five laps complete and driving to the win over Daryl Sipe, Travis Brown, John Shorb, Jr. and Lee Redman.

Dennis Dorosz and Travis Brown were heat winners for the 17 Road Warriors pitside.

Susquehanna Speedway returns to action Saturday, April 30 for KIDS NIGHT. The Credit Connection Auto Sales will once again headline the four-division show which also includes the ARDC Midgets, Xtreme Stocks and Road Warriors. Pits open at 4PM, Grandstands open at 5PM with Racing beginning at 7PM.

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA 4/23/2016 – Danny Dietrich shook off some early season bad luck in scoring his first win of the year in the 25-lap “410” sprint car feature at Lincoln Speedway Saturday night.

“We’ve been pretty fast, we just haven’t had any luck. This (Lincoln) is where we’ve been struggling the most,” said Dietrich upon exiting his Sandoe’s Fruit Market/Hickory Run Orchards/Weikert’s Livestock #48 in victory lane, “We got lucky and started at a good spot. We were pretty good. I don’t know how fast we really were, because when you get out front like that…you just don’t know how fast Austin (Hogue) is. Austin has had a heck-of-a car all year here and he’s a contender every night we come here.”

Dietrich moved up a row and started fourth when outside polesitter J.J. Grosso was not able to fire the car for the feature.

Polesitter Kyle Moody to the lead at the start and led the first four laps before Dietrich drove by on the backstretch after a fifth-lap restart.

He led the rest of the way, but could never shake Hogue, crossing just .72 seconds ahead.

“The other guys are picking up the pace and getting fast and I just wasn’t real comfortable yet,” said Dietrich, “We’ve been hindered so much that I quit looking at the gauges. I’m just trying to put it all behind me and trying to get by. There’s been pretty much pressure on me here, and it’s really good for this team to finally park it on the front stretch.”

Third through fifth were Jim Siegel (who moved into the Lincoln points lead after advancing from seventh starting spot), Robbie Kendall, and tenth-starting Adam Wilt.

Completing the top ten were Gerard McIntyre, Jr., 13th-starting Freddie Rahmer, Moody, Tim Glatfelter, and 16th-starting Steve Owings.

Heats for the 30 410 sprints were won by Brian Montieth (who flipped in turn while running ninth on lap 12 of the feature and was credited with 23rd), Glatfelter, and Danny Dietrich, with Brandon Rahmer winning the consolation.

Last week’s winner Tyler Ross was the other feature flip victim, rolling over in turn four of lap 15.

Defending Central PA and Lincoln champion Doug Hammaker claimed his first Lincoln win of the year in the 20-lap “358” sprint car feature.

Hammaker started fifth and snatched the lead from Jeff Halligan in lapped traffic in turns three and four of lap 11, then held off a late-race charge by Halligan at the end. It was Hammaker’s fifth career Lincoln win, and he became the fourth winner in four 358 events this season.

Third through fifth were 11th-starting Jeff Rohrbaugh, 13th-starting Adrian Shaffer, and tenth-starting Chandler Leiby. Rounding out the top ten were polesitter C.J. Tracy (who led the first lap), Matt Findley, Matt Campbell, Cody Fletcher, and Phil Walter.

Heats for the 30 358 sprints were won by Halligan, Fletcher, and Campbell, with Tyler Esh winning the consolation.

Mason Chaney got what he always wanted, his first career Lincoln win, in the 20-lap make-up feature for the Central PA Legends, and event postponed by high winds and rain on April 2nd.

Outside front row starter Nathan Ottensmeyer led the first lap before fourth-starting Scott Houdeshell took over on lap two. Fifth-starting Chaney, who has been attending Lincoln events since childhood, took the lead from Houdeshell on lap 16 and took the checkered 2.8 seconds ahead of Houdeshell.

Third through fifth were 19th-starting Bill Diehl, Chad Earnst, and Chris Transeau.

In the regularly-scheduled feature, Bob Stough came out on top in a four-car battle for the lead to score his fourth career Lincoln win. One of the four, Lucas Montgomery, ran out of fuel on the final lap. The other two drivers were Earnst in second and Chaney in third.

Completing the top five were Bill Diehl and Houdeshell.

Heats for the 28 Legends were won by Mason Chaney (who established an 8-lap track record of 2:44.50 in his qualifier), Diehl, and Harlon Leppo.

Next weekend, Saturday, April 30th, Lincoln Speedway will host the 13TH ANNUAL WELDON STERNER MEMORIAL for 410 Sprints, plus 358 Sprints and All-American Outlaws. Time trials at 7:30 PM, with gates opening at 5:30 PM.

Franek Now Perfect on 2016 URC Points Tour

Davie "No Panic" Franek returned to his old stomping grounds and picked up his 2nd win of the 2016 URC Season. Franek who also won at the opening night of the 2016 URC Racing season at Bridgeport Speedway has now surpassed his 2015 win total and increased his points lead.

With 18 United Racing Club Sprint cars in the pits, the fans saw 2 exciting heat races with Jason Clauss and Ed Aikin picking up the heat wins. Clauss drew the "0" pill for the invert and was rewarded with the P1 starting position for the night. A lap 1 caution for a spinning Scott Flammer sent the colorful 37 to the rear of the field. At the restart Ed Aikin in the Scott McClelland owned 21 bolted to the lead with Jason Clauss now following. A scary crash on lap 5 ended the night of Jason Clauss while sending the 747 of Davey Sammons to the pits for a new right rear. The 5g of Curt Michael and 89 of Robbie Stillwaggon barely missed the crash while Stillwaggon completed a 360 while avoiding the crash. Sammons and the 747 returned before the green waived again.

At the restart Robbie Stillwaggon picked off the 5G of Curt Michael and set his sights on the 28f of Davie Franek and leader Ed Aikin. With Aikin in heavy lapped traffic and a blanket covering the top 4, it was only a matter of time before something gave. Going into turn 1, Aikin and the 21 car battled lapped traffic, while Aikin went high, Franek and the 28f went low and come out with the lead. Franek lead the final laps with Aikin crossing the finish line in 2nd. Rounding out the top 5 was the 5G of Curt Michael, 89 of Robbie Stillwaggon and the 56 of Randy West.

The United Racing Club will now head to Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night April 29th. Race time is 8pm at the Grove. On Saturday the teams will have just enough time to get the cars washed before they are off to Selinsgrove Speedway and the Jack Gunn Memorial Race.

Results: 1. 28f Franek, 2. 21 Aikin, 3. 5G Michael, 4. 89 Stillwaggon, 5. 56 West, 6. 5 Barger, 7. 39 Snyder, 8. 22 Betts, 9. 74JR Berry, 10. 10 Colagiovanni, 11. 4 Stitzel, 12. 37 Flammer, 13. 17j Swanson, 14. 7o6 Sasso, 15. 747 Sammons, 16. 08 Clauss, 17. X Rizzo, 18. 73B Michalski

Dale Blaney Scores Inaugural Keith Kauffman Classic by Nearly Six Seconds

PORT ROYAL, Pa. (April 23, 2016) - The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions cruised into Central Pennsylvania on Saturday afternoon with intentions to beat the “Pennsylvania Posse” on their home dirt. Not only did the Arctic Cat All Stars achieve their goal, they conquered, earning two spots on the feature podium including the very top worth $5,000. The regional travelers are now two-for-two in 2016 during “Posse” competition.

“To win the first race here at Port Royal in Keith Kauffman’s honor is really, really special,” explained Dale Blaney regarding his Keith Kauffman Classic victory. “Hopefully we’ll be back here every year for this deal. I’m the only All Star to have a win at Port Royal so far, so hopefully next year we can still be the only All Star to win here. I wouldn’t be able to do it without Janet and CH Motorsports. Todd and Big Game/GoMuddy came on board last year and gave all of us a great situation. My guys work their tails off for me and I am proud to be a part of this team. ”

Dale Blaney, defending Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions titlist, led every lap of the inaugural Keith Kauffman Classic at Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal on Saturday, April 23, capturing his 129th career Arctic Cat All Star victory. The “Low Rider” started second on the main event grid, and despite the initial start getting called back due to a caution, the Ohio native surged to the front and controlled the opening circuit.

After dealing with two consecutive cautions on lap four, as well as a fuel stop, Blaney’s lead would eventually stretch to 5.76 seconds at the end of 30 circuits around the Port Royal “Speed Palace,” keeping current series point leader Chad Kemenah at bay. The pilot of the CH Motorsports,, No 1B now has three career victories at Port Royal Speedway, with two occurring during Arctic Cat All Star competition. Blaney is now the first repeat winner of the 2016 Arctic Cat All Star season, earning his first during the HD Supply Spring Nationals at Attica Raceway Park.

“We were really good tonight,” said Blaney. “I love it when the track gets like this. You can move all around it. It kinda got bottom heavy for me right around the end of the race. I was able to move up to the top to get around some lapped guys, but I would go right back to where I was. We weren’t really gaining on anyone ahead of us in traffic. I just tried to run as hard as I could and keep the car down. Chad (Kemenah) has been running really well lately, and Greg (Hodnett) is the guy to beat over here. They were both on the board so that makes you run a little bit harder.”

Chad Kemenah started fourth on the feature grid, racing into second by the end of lap one. The former four-time Arctic Cat All Star champion followed Blaney the entire 30-lap distance, chasing the defending champion through periods of traffic, which came into effect as early as lap nine. Despite attempts to catch the “Low Rider,” Kemenah would have to settle for second, followed by Greg Hodnett, a fast charging Dave Blaney, and Steve Buckwalter. The main event went undisturbed following the lap four fuel stop.
For Kemenah, it was his fifth top-five performance of the 2016 Arctic Cat All Star season, including non-point action in Florida during the early stages of February. The driver of the Hunter Racing, No. 10H will enter the next point event with a six marker advantage over Dale Blaney.

Dave Blaney’s advancement into the top-five during the Keith Kauffman Classic included a hard charge equalling 20 positions. The former World of Outlaws champion, driver of the Motter Motorsports, No. 71M, started 24th on the feature starting grid.

The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions will conclude their trek through Central Pennsylvania with a visit to the Selinsgrove Speedway in Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania, on Sunday night, April 24; the first appearance by the traveling series in 16 years. The Ray Tilley Classic will headline action at the Selinsgrove half-mile, awarding a $5,000 top prize. “Mr. Excitement” Todd Shaffer is the most recent winner at Selinsgrove Speedway during Arctic Cat All Star competition, taking home the checkers on May 7, 2000.

Selinsgrove Speedway pit gates are scheduled to swing open at 4:00 pm on Sunday afternoon, April 24, with a mandatory drivers meeting to follow at 5:15. Warm-ups will begin at approximately 5:30 pm, followed by racing at 6:00 pm, sharp. Those interested in learning more should visit Selinsgrove Speedway live on the Web at

Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions

Stewart Earns Emotional Texas Outlaw Nationals Victory Captures Ted Johnson Memorial trophy at Devil’s Bowl Speedway

MESQUITE, Texas - April 23, 2016 - An emotional Shane Stewart climbed from his car and wiped away tears of joy after he fought his way to the front of the field and claimed Saturday night's Texas Outlaw Nationals $20,000 to-win finale at Devil's Bowl Speedway, his second World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series victory of the season.

Stewart is just the third driver to chisel his name into the Ted Johnson Memorial trophy, after Daryn Pittman claimed the inaugural event in 2014 and Donny Schatz won in 2015.

"I'm a little choked up, this is a big win for me," Stewart said. "A lot of people have helped me get to this point. I drove for a lot of good car owners, like my mom and dad who are here.

"It's been a long road to get here that's for sure, and some days you don't think you're ever going to get here but when you finally do it makes it really special. There were plenty of times I thought "this is it, I am going to have to get a regular job" but people kept believing in me and giving me opportunities - [team owners] Justin [Marks] and Kyle [Larson] are a great example of that."

Stewart's victory was not due to a lack of competition, as the Bixby, Okla. -native fought his way around Pittman, who owned the top spot for much of the night after leading the opening 23 laps, then held off Joey Saldana for the victory.

"This year we are believing in each other and doing a good job," Saldana said. "Dennis [Roth] is providing us with all the great equipment we need to compete at a high level and that is showing out here on the racetrack, so hopefully we can continue this and keep the Roth family happy."

To start the night, Jason Sides captured the quick-time award, which is his first of the season, then won his heat race to qualify for the dash. Unfortunately for Sides, the dash invert hurt his chances, as he had to start the six-lap race in the sixth position and never returned to the front of the field.

The winner of the dash and first place starter went to Jason Johnson, who started third Friday night and finished fifth. Unfortunately for the Eunice, La. -native, he never led a lap in the 30-lap feature, as Pittman, who started second, rocketed around him for the lead on the opening lap.

Pittman, in the No. 9 Great Clips/Sage Fruit car, appeared to have control over the top spot, much the same way he did Friday night, as he easily pulled away from second place Joey Saldana, who had worked his way up from the fourth position.

Early in the feature Pittman and Saldana stayed nose-to-tail, but it wasn't until a spree of late race cautions that Stewart would enter the picture in his American Born Moonshine/Eneos Oil No. 2.

Stewart started the feature in the third position and lurked in the top-five the entire race, biding his time and waiting for a chance to challenge the leaders.

That chance came following a red flag with six laps to go.

Stewart worked his way around Saldana on the ensuing restart, then set his sights on the Pittman who was leading. Stewart got by Pittman for the lead just before the race-long leader suffered a flat left rear tire, which all but ended his chances of claiming the win.

Stewart held off challenges from both Saldana in the Roth Enterprises/HR Livestock No. 83 and Kerry Madsen in the Keneric Healthcare/American Racing Wheels No. 29 in the final few laps to capture the victory, one that he was able to share with his family, who was present for the race.

"Restarting on the outside just saved me," Stewart said. "I'll humbly accept this win - we didn't have the best car tonight. We didn't have anything for Daryn [Pittman], and you never want to see a competitor go out with a flat tire, but we were just in the right place at the right time and took full advantage of it."

Saldana, winner of Friday night's feature at Devil's Bowl, finished the runner-up position after again contending for the win, but just coming up one spot short of sweeping the weekend.

"On that last double-file restart, Pittman had a flat tire and you know that tire is going to go down and have an issue," Saldana said. "I ran my car too safe there and got snookered there by Shane [Stewart] and got tight.

"Definitely felt like I had a second place car. I was right there with Daryn [Pittman] on that restart, and you hate losing races on restarts - I lost one last week at Bakersfield Speedway...I have got to get better at that if I am going to win these races like this."

Madsen managed a third place finish after he started the feature in the 10th position and charging his way to the front of the field.

"The car was great," Madsen said. "I had a great time coming from mid-pack to the podium. The track was fantastic and the car was great, my guys did a great job.

"I have two good race cars and I keep letting the guys down. Hopefully, if we continue to get this thing up front, people put so much into this team, and the team deserves better than what I am giving them at the moment."

MECHANICSBURG, PA – Brian Montieth shot from fourth to first on the opening lap and went on to win the Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial Spring Classic Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway.

For Montieth, the driver of Jerry Parrish’s No. 21, the win was his 21st at the track and worth $6,000. It was his first Grove win of the season.

He started fourth, drove by Ryan Smith in turn two, and then by Danny Dietrich in turn four to take the lead on lap one of the 30-lapper.

With five laps completed, Montieth led Dietrich and Smith by 1.881 seconds as he reached the back of the field. Greg Hodnett had moved by Lucas Wolfe and into fourth.

“I got awful close to Ryan in that first corner,” said Montieth. “I beat him to the apex, but not by much. To me, I had to run there. That was the race for me. Other than that, just going out to time trial and not messing up. There’s too many good cars behind me. You mess up, you’re going to get passed.”

“We haven’t been good,” said Montieth. “My boys have spent a lot of time in the shop tearing this thing apart and putting it back together. I don’t think we’re good enough to win every night yet, but we’re making progress. We lucked out with (Dale) Blaney breaking. That moved us up. All the cards played the way they needed to play.”

Dietrich would close as Montieth negotiated lapped traffic. Montieth was racing hard and sliding by slower cars in the corners to keep Dietrich in second.

Montieth momentarily cleared traffic at the halfway point to give him some breathing room over Dietrich. Hodnett, meanwhile, raced around Smith for third.

With 10 laps to go, Montieth had a two-car cushion on Dietrich and was racing in clean air. Hodnett would pass Dietrich in turn two.

Hodnett’s pass by Dietrich wouldn’t count as the yellow flew as point leader Doug Esh did a 360-spin at the end of the frontstretch. He kept going, but the field was slowed with Montieth leading Dietrich and Hodnett with eight laps to go.

Hodnett looked low on Dietrich for a lap after the restart, but the outside groove was too fast and he moved back up to the cushion.

The final lap saw Montieth check-up entering turn three due to a lapped car. He moved low to block Dietrich’s attempt at a slider. The Phoenixville racer would get the win by 0.760 seconds. Dietrich, Hodnett, Stevie Smith and Ryan Smith completed the top five.

Esh, who got his spot back after the yellow, Alan Krimes, Freddie Rahmer, Lucas Wolfe and Cory Haas rounded out the top 10.

Hodnett set fast time over the 26-car field with a lap of 16.971 seconds. S. Smith, Montieth, Wolfe, and R. Smith completed the top five qualifiers. Drivers were given only one lap in time trials due to the impending weather.

The eight-lap heat races were won by Dietrich, Esh and Ott. No consolation was needed as Dale Blaney and Jay Galloway scratched for the night after mechanical problems in their heat races.  The show was moved along fast as rain was in the area.

Mike Potts won the 15-lap street stock feature over Kory Sites, Craig Morgan, Chris Derr, Dalton Frye and Chris Heller.

The Grove returns to action next Friday night with the 410 and URC 360-Sprint cars on the schedule. In two weeks, the 358 Sprints return, along with the third Yellow Breeches 500 race for the 410 Sprints paying $500 to start a regular 25-lap feature.

HANOVER, PA (4/22/2016) – “I just love coming here to race.  And it’s really great to be back.”
So said defending track champ Isaac Sneeringer after scoring the 2.53-second win in the 25-lap “358” sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway Friday night.

Sneeringer won on his first night out, just days after his crew picked up and dropped a new Don Ott motor into the DCI/D.E. Wildasin and Son #19Z.

“We missed opening night because we didn’t have a motor for the car,” said Sneeringer, “I want to thank the crew for picking it up this week.”

Sneeringer started sixth, took second from Seth Kearchner on lap seven, and chased down race-long leader Cody Fletcher over the next ten laps before passing the #66A on the backstretch of lap 18.

From there, he drove away to his 13th career Trail-Way win, with Kearchner crossing second and hard charger Mike Bittinger (who started 15th) third.  Completing the top five were 12th-starting Doug Hammaker and Fletcher.

Rounding out the top ten were 11th-starting Randy Whisler, Chris Frank, Bobby Howard (racing at Trail-Way for the first time in 10 years), Brandon Noel, and Dave Thrush.

Heats for the 16 “358” sprints were won by David Holbrook and Fletcher. Holbrook started on the pole but dropped to the infield in the back stretch of the first lap.

Bernville’s Hayden Miller started on the pole and dominated the 20-lap 600cc micro-sprint feature, crossing 3.25 seconds in front of Travis Scott.  Jim Young, 12th-starting Tyler Walton, and Bo Gordon finished third through fifth.
Qualifiers for the 17 micros were won by Scott and Walton.

Mason Chaney made a last-turn pass around Chad Ernst to score a thrilling first career win in the 20-lap ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends feature.

Chris Transeau started on the outside pole and led the first eight laps. Chad Earnst, who started fourth, claimed the lead on lap nine.  One lap later Transeau and Bill Diehl got together while racing for second in turn two.  Transeau went to the rear and Diehl was cited for roughriding, also sending him to the rear.

Travis McClelland assumed second and Chaney third for the restart.  Chaney, who was losing his brakes, went to the top, drove around McClelland for second with one lap to go, and charged around Earnst on the final turn.
Earnst settled for second, with McClelland third, Greg Burd fourth, and Austin Bellamare fifth.

Heats for the 13 Legends were won by Bob Stough and Transeau.

Matt Chronister became Trail-Way’s all-time winner in the 15-lap limited stock feature, claiming his 33rd career win by 3.91 seconds over points leader Justin Wagaman.

Chronister started on the outside pole and led the first seven laps before yielding to brother Jason Chronister.  The Chronister brothers split a lapped car coming off turn four of lap ten.  Jason, who may have struck the outside wall, dropped to fourth moments later, handing the lead back to Matt.

Matt led the rest of the way, with Wagaman, Ricky Weaver, Jr., 11th-starting Chad Weaver, and tenth starting Joseph Bowling (running in only the second race of his career) completing the top five.

Heats for the 20 limited stocks were won by Wagaman and Robbie Carroll, who was unable to start the feature event.

Next Friday, April 29, Trail-Way swings back into action with the Precise Racing Products 358 Late Models.

Saldana Outduels Pittman for Texas Outlaw Nationals Victory

Captures lead with two laps to go to win opening night at Devil’s Bowl Speedway

MESQUITE, Texas - April 22, 2016 - Joey Saldana charged from his fifth starting position to rocket around a red-hot Daryn Pittman with just two laps remaining to claim the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series Texas Outlaw Nationals at Devil's Bowl Speedway on Friday night.

Saldana returned to victory lane for the first time since the opening night at The Dirt Track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on March 3.

"We've had a really good car this year, but the driver's made a lot of mistakes," Saldana said. "Tonight everything hit on all cylinders and it was just an awesome night...I can't thank Dennis and Teresa Roth enough for this opportunity.

"It was just a great effort by everybody tonight, they worked really hard and I am proud of what we have done tonight. It shows that we should have done more of this but I have got to do a better job, and tonight I feel like I did a pretty good job."

Pittman, after leading the majority of the 25-lap feature, settled for a second-place finish, the seventh time he has finished in the runner-up position this season.

"We were sniffing three in-a-row, but just got beat at the end of the race," Pittman said. "I got in traffic and got tighter as the race went on and I guess I was just kind of afraid to try a different line.

"I wasn't really close enough to a lapped car to try the bottom and so I just got tight behind a lapped car there and got rolled up and Joey [Saldana] drove by us on the bottom in one and two. I don't know if he was running down there the whole time, but he stayed down there the rest of the race."

To start the night, Sam Haftertepe Jr. in the Wells Engines/Highway 79 Collision Center No. 15H, looked to have the car to beat as he paced qualifying and captured the win in his heat to gain admittance to the dash. Hafertepe started on the pole-position for the six-lap dash after drawing a zero for the invert.

The Texas native continued his early night dominance, as he rolled to the victory in the dash after leading every lap and holding off a challenge from Kerry Madsen.

Once the green flag fell to start the feature event, Madsen, in the Keneric Healthcare/American Racing Wheels No. 29, accomplished what he could not do in the dash, and made his way around Haftertepe to claim the top spot.

Madsen's grip on the top spot was short lived and slipped away following an early race caution that allowed Pittman, who started the race in the third position and worked his way into second, to restart next to the leader and eventually complete the pass for the lead on lap nine.

As the race reached the latter portions, it appeared Pittman was staring at a three-peat after winning the SoCal Showdown at Perris Auto Speedway and the NAPA Wildcat Showdown at USA Raceway.

Pittman led a race-high 13 laps but Saldana, in the No. 83 Roth Enterprises/HR Livestock car, continued to lurk behind the leader. Saldana never allowed the leader to escape his grasps, even as the leaders reached the tail end of the field and started lapping slower cars.

With just a handful of laps remaining, Saldana closed on the leader. With just two laps remaining, the "Brownsburg Bullet" completed the pass on Pittman for the top spot.

Saldana pulled away from Pittman and third-place finisher Brad Sweet to claim the victory on the opening night of the Texas Outlaws Nationals at the historic Devil's Bowl Speedway.

"I moved around a little bit through the top and the middle and I could see Daryn [Pittman] was staying on the bottom and then moved to the top," Saldana said. "For some reason I decided to run the bottom through three and four and I caught some ground on him, so I knew if we got to lapped traffic I could use that. It just worked out, it was a great race, and the fans saw a great race - a lot of different lead changes with people moving all over the place."

Even though Pittman didn't capture the victory, he was still excited to continue their recent momentum and looks forward to tomorrow's race at Devil's Bowl.

"We just got beat, nothing to be disappointed about, we had a great race car," Pittman said. "We were up front tonight and that's all you can ask for. We will come back tomorrow night and try again and try to improve one spot."

Picking up his series leading 16th top-five of the season, Sweet in the Razorback Professional Tools/Riebes Auto Parts No. 49 managed to charge his way from the 11th starting position to score a podium finish.

"My guys have given me great race cars all year and we seem to shine in the A-mains," Sweet said. "These are the nights we need to have, big picture-wise, coming from 11th to third.

"We were really coming on strong there, but it was a short race - 25 laps went by really quick. We got caught in lapped traffic and were able to maneuver around a little bit. We got to get the car better for tomorrow night, big money is on the line and a few more laps."

The World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series will resume action tomorrow night for round two of the Texas Outlaw Nationals double-header at Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas. Great seats are still available, and can be purchased at the track box office.
