Williams Grove 57th Champion Racing Oil National Open Sports Biggest Sprint Payday In Oval And East History

Another Chapter In Tremendous History Of Event To Be Written October 5!

Mechanicsburg – Sprint car fans in the East will assemble Saturday night to see the 57th running of the Williams Grove Speedway Champion Racing Oil National Open for sprint cars sanctioned by the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Cars Series, going 40-laps in distance and paying a gigantic $65,000 to the winner.

This year’s event will be quite momentous, as the champion will pocket the biggest cash payday ever in the history of the oval and in the East, at $65,000. . 

The National Open has a grand history that dates back to its inception and first champion in 1963.  It is a history that pre-dates all other season-finale races held anywhere in the East.

Eventual Indianapolis 500 champion Gordon Johncock of Hastings, Mich., won the very first 100-lap affair in a contraption that had what looked like a wing atop its roll cage. 

And this too would soon come to pass, as sprint cars would begin taking over dirt tracks in the east, including Williams Grove Speedway.

Ohio USAC standout Larry Dickson scored Open round two in 1964.  Western Pennsylvania invader Henry Jacoby of Franklin took 1965. 

The name of Blaney graced the National Open winner’s circle in 1966 as family patriarch Lou took Open laurels decades before his sons Dave and Dale would compete on the scene.

Bobbie Adamson, becoming a region name, took back-to-back victories in 1967 and 1968 before a virtual unknown named Gene Varner from Selinsgrove drove a back-up Gary Wasson No. 5 to an upset win in 1969 after a distance of 150 laps.

The decade of the 1970’s dawned with Altoona flyer Johnny Grum picking up the Open win.

The first of three consecutive wins by Midwest transplant Kenny Weld took place in 1971.  All three of Weld’s wins came aboard the Bob Weikert No. 29.

Another transplant, The Bandit, Steve Smith Sr., took wins in 1974 and again in a rain-shortened 122-lap race in 1976 while The Original Outlaw, Bobby Allen drove to a win in 1975.

Texas native racing brother Van May took the 1977 version of the National Open before the Pink Panther struck in 1978 with a Kramer Williamson 100-lap win.

Smokey Snellbaker drove to victory for Charlie Lloyd in 1979 before the grandson of a coal miner named Lucas, Allen Klinger of Hegins kicked off the 1980’s with a 40-lap victory.

Steve Smith Sr. returned for a third Open triumph in 1981.

Lynn Paxton went back-to-back in 1982 and 1983 and stunned the racing world after his second 75-lap win by going into retirement during the off-season.

Three more in a row for owner Bob Weikert came at the hands of South Dakota driver Doug Wolfgang from 1984 – 1986.

Wolfgang got stunned, denied and passed by Bobby Allen’s brother, Joey Allen, for the victory in 1987.

The Mouse, Kenny Jacobs of Holmesville, Ohio, took another win for Weikert in 1988.

The year 1989 found the first true World of Outlaws National Open contested as the yearly sanctioning began with Stevie Smith taking a victory to carry on his father’s tradition.

Technically, the 1978 National Open was considered an outlaws race as well although no outlaws drivers competed in the event.

One of if not the greatest sprint car driver(s) of all time, Hoosier Steve Kinser took his first National Open checkers in 1990.

Stevie Smith returned for another Open win, both for car owner Al Hamilton, in 1991, and now at a distance of 50 laps.

Kinser was again the champion in 1992 before daytime specialist Don Kreitz Jr. drove to victory under the Sunday sun in 1993 after 40 laps of action.

Steve Kinser was again the winner in 1994 before outlaw cousin Mark Kinser took 1995. 

The locals went back in front in 1996 with Lance Dewease and No. 461 car owner Walt Dyer.

Sammy Swindell won his first National Open in 1997 on a night that had fans returning to frozen windshields on their cars by the time the race ended.

Persistent rain forced a non-sanctioned event in 1998, won by modified turned sprint star Billy Pauch in a mount owned by John Zemaitis.

Mark Kinser returned for victory in 1999 before one of today’s outlaws stars and champions, Donny Schatz took his first win in 2000 as part of what would become a historic record in National Open competition in another 13 years. 

Dewease returned the laurels to the PA Posse turf with back-to-back wins in 2001 and 2002, for car owners Joe Harz and Al Hamilton, taking $25,000 and $30,000, respectively on both accounts.

Steve Kinser was again the winner in 2003 before Schatz returned for two in a row in 2004 and 2005.

The first $50,000 to win National Open was scored by Lancaster’s Doug Esh in 2006 and as it turned out it was the richest and shortest Open in history when rains hit on lap 26 of 40. 

Schatz was again the winner in 2007.

Thanks to more persistent rain, another unsanctioned event in 2008 saw future outlaws and All Stars star Cody Darrah drive to victory.

Greg Hodnett took a hugely popular National Open victory for the PA Posse in 2009 driving the Jim and Sandy Kline No. 22.

Sammy Swindell got the second Open win of his career in 2010.

West coast flyer Jason Meyers took the 40-lap, $50,000 laurels in 2011.

The 2012 version saw North Dakota’s Schatz surge for an unprecedented fifth career win in the prestigious classic National Open.

With the $50,000, 40-lap victory, Schatz became the winningest driver in National Open history, breaking a four-win tie with Steve Kinser.

In 2013, the grand career of local driver Fred Rahmer of Salfordville was capped off at Williams Grove with his first and only triumph in the lucrative, prestigious National Open as Rahmer led the final 31 laps of the 40-lap feature before the veteran retired from the sport at the close of the season. 

Connecticut driver David Gravel took the $50,000 win in 2014 but not without controversy.

The outlaws flyer was overtaken by local favorite Stevie Smith during the last half of the race before the slightest of contact from a closely following Gravel found Smith spinning in the first turn with six laps to go while Gravel retook command for the victory.

And then Stevie Smith got redemption in what was to be the first three-day National Open in history in 2015.

After three consecutive days of rain stopped the event dead in its tracks, a break with the weather on Sunday allowed a raindated Open to be completed with Smith taking the lead from Danny Dietrich on the ninth tour to lead the final 31 circuits and beat Schatz to the line for victory.

An uncanny three more days of rain and raw weather wiped out a second attempt at a three-day nationals in 2016.

An outlaws make up two weeks later found Danny Dietrich taking the lead from Joey Saldana with two laps to go in the 40-lap affair to score a wildly popluar win for the Pennsylvania Posse. Brad Sweet also took a turn at leading the main.

Connecticut’s David Gravel struck for his second $50,000 score in the 2017 National Open. Gravel took the lead from Donny Schatz and then took the lead back from James McFadden to win the 55th Annual affair.

An emotional 2018 event held just days after the tragic death of 2009 National Open champion Greg Hodnett saw local driver Lance Dewease win his fourth career nationals for his fourth different car owner.  Driving for Don Kreitz Jr. in the No. 69K, Dewease wrestled the lead away from Brock Zearfoss with a three-wide move in the second turn on lap 24 to seal the 40-lap deal, worth $56,000.  A tearful Dewease dedicated the victory to Hodnett.

Admission prices for Saturday’s National Open are $35 for adults and $20 for youth.

Williams Grove And Drivers Ready For 57th Annual Champion Racing Oil National Open

October 4 & 5 event ends Grove season with two-day outlaws stand offering big money, big action, big car counts

Josie McIntyre Photo
Mechanicsburg - The 57th annual Williams Grove Speedway Champion Racing Oil National Open for the Pennsylvania Posse sprints and the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Cars Series is coming up in just one week, on October 4 and 5 at 7:30 pm both nights.

The fall classic will take place during a two-day stand by the outlaws sprint cars stars and the winner of this years 57th annual Champion Racing Oil National Open for sprint cars on October 5 will pocket the biggest cash payday ever in the history of the oval and in the East, at $65,000. .

Saturday’s event will be 40laps in distance while Friday’s event will pay $10,000 to win for 25 laps of work.

Admission prices for Saturday’s National Open are $35 for adults and $20 for youth while Friday’s prices are set at $30 and $15, respectively.

Kids ages 12 and under are always admitted for FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.

The two-day Champion Racing Oil Natoinal Open races will find Gettysburg’s Danny Dietrich racing as he trys to cap off his first ever Williams Grove Speedway track title.

But Dietrich will be trying to do more than that in the event as he attempts to win his second career nationals after taking his first in 2016.

And Dietrich may just do it this year as he takes not only the point lead but also five oval wins on the season into the race, more than any other driver this year at the track.

In fact, Dietrich is the winningest driver in the East this season with 13 victories overall, which also ranks him among the top winners in the nation to date this year.

He has beaten the outlaws already this season as well as the All Stars Circuit of Champions on more than one occasion.

Defending Open winner Lance Dewease should be a factor in this year’s event after taking his fourth Open triumph for as many car owners in the 2018 race.

Dewease does have five wins at the track this season including one over the outlaws and last week’s outlaws tune up race but the Fayetteville flyer hasn’t been as consistently in the hunt of late when the biggest races hit the track.

Freddie Rahmer is still looking for a first ever win in the Open and shouldn’t be overlooked nor should Brian Montieth of Phoenixville who has been fast within the last few weeks.

Another potential factor within the local field this week could be Anthony Macri.

Since teaming with mechanic Jim Shuttlesworth in late August, Macri has turned in some stellar performances in other big season-ending races in the area, when the tracks have slicked off.

Californian Giovanni Scelzi won the 2018 Friday night Open Preliminary and is expected to be in the field again this season along with other independents like Brian Brian, Kerry Madsen and Tim Shaffer.

Abbottstown, PA (September 28, 2019) – Ryan Smith had yet to find victory lane in 2019, but that changed when the Kunkletown driver earned his first career win at the Fabulous Lincoln Speedway on Saturday night. Smith held off a charging Danny Dietrich to win the 25-lap main event.

Smith drew the pole position in the redraw and shared the front row with Dietrich. 2019 Track Champion, Brian Montieth lined up third and 410-rookie driver, Tyler Walton, started fourth.

Walton got by Montieth for third at the start of the race as Smith led Dietrich around the 3/8th mile oval.

It didn’t take Montieth long to start challenging Walton for third. Montieth took the spot back on lap 3 after getting under Walton going into the third turn.

The first caution of the race came on lap 4 for Freddie Rahmer who was parked sideways in turn 4.

Smith, Dietrich, Montieth, Walton and Anthony Macri were the top five heading into the restart.

Smith got a great start and went high going into turn 1 with Dietrich opting for the bottom of the track.

Macri used the bottom of the track to challenge Walton for fourth and took the spot-on lap 6.

The yellow flag flew again on lap 7. Anthony Fiore and Brett Michalski got turned around in turn 4. It was a close call for Smith and Dietrich as they nearly get together avoiding the spun-out cars.

Dietrich went low again into turn 1 on the restart and once again Smith held him off.

Dietrich was searching for something on the bottom of turns 1 and 2 as he tried to reel in Smith.

Smith entered lapped traffic on lap 13.

As Dietrich was rim ridding in turns 3 and 4, he hit the wall on lap 16 and lost nearly a second to Smith but was able to keep running.

Another yellow flag came out on lap 18 when Chris Arnold ended up facing the wrong was in turn 4.

On the restart Dietrich once again went low and this time he stayed within striking distance of Smith. Dietrich slid Smith in turns 3 and 4 for the lead, but Smith beat him back to the line.

Dietrich tried another slide job in turns 3 and 4 as the white flag waved for the leaders but once again Smith was able to hold him off.

Smith beat Dietrich to the checkered flag for his first 410 win of the season by .952 seconds. Montieth crossed the line third. Macri was fourth and Chad Trout completed the top five.

Danny Dietrich, Lucas Wolfe and Cory Haas each won a heat race. Chase Dietz won the B-main.

Jon Stewart Wins First Lincoln Speedway Feature

Jon Stewart parked his number 13 machine in victory lane for the first time in his career on Saturday night after making the pass for the lead with seven laps to go.

Stewart lined up fourth for the start of the feature next to Mark VanVorst. Pole-sitter Cody Fletcher paced the field with Michael Hamer on his outside for the start of the 20-lap feature.

Fletcher took the lead going into turn 1 but the yellow came out before the first lap was completed. The caution was for VanVorst who ended up against the wall in turns 1 and 2.

Fletcher took the lead again on the start with Stewart getting around the outside of Hamer for second. A three-way battle for second ensued between Hamer, Jeff Rohrbaugh and Stewart. Both Stewart and Rohrbaugh got by Hamer with Stewart taking second and Rohrbaugh running third.

Rohrbaugh and Stewart raced wheel to wheel for second with Rohrbaugh taking the spot as the caution came out on lap 5 for Dylan Orwig and David Holbrook. Orwig was spun around and Holbrook came to a stop in turn 4.

Fletcher led Rohrbaugh, Stewart, CJ Tracy and Hamer to the cone for the restart.

Hammaker was trying to work his way into the top five as Stewart got back around Rohrbaugh coming out of turn 2 on lap 7 for second.

 An exciting three car race for the lead was brewing between Fletcher Stewart and Rohrbaugh. Fletcher was running the bottom as Stewart rolled through the middle of turns 1 and 2 and was rubbing the wall in turns 3 and 4.

Another yellow flag on lap 10 for Orwig set up the field for another restart.

Fletcher got a good jump at the cone and had a good run coming off turn 2.

The caution flag flew again on lap 12. Nat Tuckey, Brian Allman, Alyson Dietz and VanVorst piled up in turns 1 and 2.

With eight laps to go, Fletcher got out to the lead with another good restart.

Stewart caught Fletcher and the two raced wheel to wheel to the line on lap 14 with Stewart edging out Fletcher for the lead by .008 seconds.

Fletcher had taken the lead back, but the caution came out on lap 14 for Orwig who had spun out in turn 2.

Stewart was pulling away from Fletcher coming out of turn 2 but Fletcher made up ground in turns 3 and 4 running the bottom.

Troy Wagaman had worked his way up through the field to fourth from his ninth starting spot on with three laps to go after getting around Tracy.

Stewart crossed the line for his first career win at Lincoln .825 seconds ahead of Fletcher. Rohrbaugh finished third. Wagaman was fourth and Doug Hammaker completed the top five.

Zach Euculano, Steve Drevicki and CJ Tracy each won a heat with Wyatt Hinkle taking the B-main.

Lincoln Speedway will be back in action on Saturday, February 22, 2020 at 2PM for the Ice Breaker. Pit gates will open at 11:30AM and the grandstand will open at noon.

THE BIG 5-0: Brad Sweet earns his 50th career win, extends points lead at Lernerville With Donny Schatz having a rare issue, Sweet now holds a 40-point lead over him

Josie McIntyre Photo
SARVER, PA – Sept. 28, 2019 – Brad Sweet has made a habit of winning big this season – most notably claiming the $175,000-to-win Kings Royal in July.

However, his win Saturday night at Lernerville Speedway may prove to be his biggest victory, yet.

When Sweet sped by the checkered flag he picked up his second win in-a-row at the Commonwealth Clash event, his 16th World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series win of the season, his 50th career Series win and went from a four-point lead over Donny Schatz to a 40-point lead.

“We’ve had what feels like the best car all year,” Sweet said. “ You know, sixteenth win. We’ve been up front a lot.”

That was the case all night for Sweet and his Kasey Kahne Racing team at the 4/10-mile track. He qualified second to David Gravel – who picked up his 18th Quick Time of the season. Then finished second to Ian Madsen in his Dryden Heat race. He drew the pole for the DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash and went on to win it.

Starting on the front row of the 35-lap Feature with Sweet was his championship competitor.

During the July race at the Sarver, Pa. track, Sweet and Schatz battled all race long for fourth-place with Sweet the victor of the duel. They were set for reenact their battle, but this time for the lucrative win. If Sweet won, he increased his points lead over Schatz. If Schatz won, he would either reclaim the lead or tie Sweet for it.

When the two competitors accelerated their 900-hp chariots at the start of the 35-lap Feature, Sweet had the advantage and crossed in front of the 10-time Series champion before entering turn one. Schatz hung onto the Grass Valley, Calif.-native’s bumper down the backstretch. He looked low underneath the NAPA Auto Parts No. 49 car into turn three but couldn’t match the momentum Sweet was able to exit the corner with up high.

Their brawl was put on pause the first lap when the caution came out for Clay Riney coming to a stop at the top of turn one. When the race resumed, Sweet was able to launch ahead of Schatz. The Fargo, N.D.-native would not let Sweet pull away, though.

Before Sweet could attempt to find a rhythm, the caution came out, again, after one lap. This time, A.J. Flick went off track in turn two.

For the third time in two laps Schatz was awarded the opportunity to start alongside Sweet for the restart. And for the third time Sweet got the jump on him off turn four and cleared the Toco Warranty No. 15 for the lead before the first turn.

Schatz closed on Sweet down the backstretch, leaving inches between his front bumper and Sweet’s rear bumper.

Sweet committed to the high side and Schatz ran low. After putting together a few laps, Schatz found a rhythm on the bottom and began poking his nose further alongside Sweet’s car every corner.

Uncomfortable with the run Schatz was building on him, Sweet changed his line and ran low for a lap. Schatz switched to the high side but was unable to further his march to the lead. With Schatz no longer breathing down his neck, Sweet went back to the top. He was able to keep Schatz at bay, maintaining a few car lengths lead on him. Even through traffic.

“We kind of hit on some stuff last year at this same race,” Sweet said. “We basically ran the car the same way.”

While the championship competitors led the field, Shane Stewart, Ian Madsen and David Gravel brawled for third-place, at one time going three-wide for the position. Stewart eventually won the battle, but once Gravel comfortably moved into fourth-place, he kept pressure on Stewart for the remainder of the race.

Sweet had about a second lead over Schatz near the halfway point of the race. Then shock echoed around the facility. A soft pop emitted from the Schatz’s car going through turns three and four. His Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing car drastically slowed and the caution came out.

There was an issue with his engine’s magneto. Schatz could not continue, ending the night in 18th – after a rare 17th-place finish at Eldora Speedway the night prior.

Schatz declined to comment after the race.

His misfortunate benefit Stewart, who was gifted a front row starting position on the outside of Sweet on the restart. Like Schatz, he was unable to stay alongside Sweet down the front stretch, but dove underneath him into turn three, going side by side with the No. 49 car through the corner. Sweet was still too strong on the high side. He pulled away with the lead and ran off with the win.

Stewart finished second and Gravel rounded out the podium.

“I felt like we had pretty good pace the whole race, we’ve just got to keep our heads down and keep working on it and hopefully we can get some wins,” Stewart said.

Sweet’s big win helped him put a sizable points gap between he and Schatz, however neither driver has been able to maintain a large points gap on the other this year. He didn’t know where Schatz finished after the race but knows that doesn’t matter as long as he keeps winning.

“I just try to stay focused on our car, because as long as we’re winning the race we know that we’re gaining points,” Sweet said. “We can’t control what Donny does or what his team does. We just stay focused on our NAPA Auto Parts number forty-nine.

“We’ve been on a little roller coaster ride where we’ve been up or down a little bit. But I thought we really dug deep at Dodge City and Eldora. Last night (at Eldora) was a big night for us. You know, sometimes those fifths and sixths when you come from the back are good rebounds. In the big scheme of things that’s always good. We just want to get wins. If we show up every night and keep winning these races, it’s our championship to lose.”

Aaron Reutzel caps 2019 All Star title run with 4-Crown Nationals triumph at Eldora Speedway

Bill McIntyre photo
ROSSBURG, Ohio (September 28, 2019) - Aaron Reutzel’s 2019 Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 championship campaign could not have ended more appropriately. Not only did the Clute, Texas-native cap his season with a 16th Series victory, his sixth during the month of September, but Reutzel did so during the 38th running of Eldora Speedway’s historic 4-Crown Nationals; a second consecutive victory for the Texan during Eldora’s season-ending program.

Certainly an ongoing trend in 2019, Aaron Reutzel and Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports officially etched their names in All Star Circuit of Champions history books yet again, this time as an All Star champion for a second consecutive season. Although clinching the 2019 title at the conclusion of the evening's pill draw, the 4-Crown Nationals triumph certainly put an exclamation point on their season.

Six-time Series champion, Dale Blaney, wrapped-up his 2019 campaign alongside McGhee Motorsports with a runner-up finish in the final championship standings, followed by a pair of rookie contenders, Cory Eliason and Brock Zearfoss, who finished third and fourth, respectively, and Paul McMahan.

“I can’t thank Mike and Josh Baughman enough for believing in me and believing in what this team can do. I’m blessed to be the guy who gets to wheel this car,” Aaron Reutzel explained, driver of the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports/Folkens Brothers Trucking/Fischer Body Shop/Nattress Construction/No. 87 sprint car. “It’s unbelievable what we have been able to accomplish since we started.”

Starting sixth on the 4-Crown Nationals grid, Reutzel’s path to the top of the charts required finesse, as well as patience, ultimately forced to battle by a handful of the sport’s finest including Gio Scelzi, Cory Eliason, Cale Conley and Cale Thomas.

After moving ahead one position during the initial start, it took Reutzel until lap five to advance one more, this time driving by West Virginia's Cale Conley to takeover the fourth spot. Meanwhile, Fairland, Indiana’s Cale Thomas was the man in control, utilizing the outside-pole position aboard Ron Gorby’s No. G1 to lead the first six circuits.

Despite a stout pace around Eldora Speedway’s infamous top groove, Thomas’ reign quickly ran out as Cory Eliason made his presence known on lap seven. A diving slider through turns three and four allowed Eliason to gain the top spot, now with Thomas, Gio Scelzi and Reutzel in tow. Unfortunately for Thomas, his run in the top-five ended on lap ten, as incidental contact between himself and Aaron Reutzel led to a 360 degree spin between turns three and four. The spin eventually signaled a caution forcing Thomas to restart at the tail of the field.

With the ensuing single-file restart on his side, it would only take Reutzel one circuit to move his way into the second spot, utilizing the middle line through turns one and two to slingshot around Gio Scelzi.

The main event’s second and final caution appeared on lap 15 setting up a near-identical situation for Retuzel and Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports. Using one lap to set himself up before capitalizing one circuit later, Reutzel’s winning maneuver occurred on lap 16, this time sliding by fellow All Star full-timer, Cory Eliason, with a bold move through turns one and two.

Driving by Thomas early, Eliason had been in command since lap seven.

It was a clear path for Reutzel during his first six circuits in command, but slower traffic soon entered the picture. As lapped cars started to multiply, Eliason seemed to make progress, eventually shrinking Reutzel’s command during their first few laps in traffic. Feeling a sense of pressure, Reutzel quickly found another gear took off, immediately pulling away from the Rudeen Racing entry. By the time the final checkers flew on lap 25, the gap was pushing three seconds.

Gio Scelzi held strong to finish just behind Eliason and Reutzel, followed by Buddy Kofoid and Dale Blaney.

“When I got the lead, I could kinda see the gap I was putting on Cory,” Aaron Reutzel said referring to the Eldora big screen. “I saw when he was getting back to me a little bit, so I kinda searched around and found something else. The big screen definitely helped out here. You can see where other people are and where other people are running. I was way better on the short runs and definitely needed that last caution.”

“I knew [Aaron Reutzel] was going to be there at some stage. We were rolling pretty good. I guess I hung on the wing valve a little too much,” Cory Eliason explained. “I couldn’t figure out why we got so tight at the end. It wasn’t until after the checkers when I looked up and realized what had happened. We were really good really early. I was just trying to pace it and save myself for the end.”

“We didn’t do it from the front row tonight,” Aaron Reutzel continued. “There have been a lot of naysayers the last month or so saying that we’ve only been able to win from of the front row. We drew the worst [dash] pill we could draw tonight. Hopefully that will give them something else to talk about. This has been an absolute dream season. What a way to cap it off.”

Dewease Tunes For Williams Grove Open & Outlaws With “Tricky” Sprints Win Hammaker scores 358 sprint main and wraps up title

Josie McIntyre photo


Mechanicsburg – Lance Dewease of Fayetteville scored his 98th career Williams Grove Speedway sprint car win on Friday night in the World of Outlaws tune up race for 410 sprint cars.

Dewease took home $8,000 for his fifth win of the year at the track after overtaking Freddie Rahmer for the win.

In the 358 sprint feature, Doug Hammaker put an exclamation point on his 2019 track title in the division by claiming the final race of the year.

The initial start of the 30-lap outlaws tune up race was red flagged for a vicious crash just before the first lap could be completed when Tyler Reeser and Cody Keller tangled just as they exited turn four.

Reeser’s car was destroyed with the front end of the mount totally torn away.

The restart saw polesitter Freddie Rahmer jet into the lead over second starter Brian Montieth with Dewease racing third.

The only caution flag of the race unfurled with four laps away, regrouping the field.

Dewease began challenging Montieth for second on the restart and took a low lane underneath him in the first and second turns to net the second spot on the sixth loop.

Rahmer began working traffic with 20 laps to go at by the halfway point both he and Dewease seemed to be struggling to work through the field.

At times Rahmer would slip over the third turn cushion while Dewease would burst off of the second turn but then slide around in the third and fourth corner.

Dewease took his first swipe at the lead with 11 laps to go in the first turn when he caught Rahmer as he came up on a backmarker.

Dewease took the opportunity to go three wide through the turns, racing in the middle groove and drawing even with Rahmer who was to his outside.

However Rahmer pulled ahead onto the backchute and Dewease regrouped.

With six laps to go, Dewease had again run up on Rahmer in traffic and he bolted underneath him in the third turn to drive up across the track, catch the cushion and take control but Rahmer turned his car off of the cushion and reclaimed the top spot at the line although the naked eye would have trouble seeing who got to the line first.

Dewease then mashed the brakes and turned the car from the outside lane to the inside as he and Rahmer set their cars into the first turn and as Rahmer swept across the cushion Dewease throttled his No. 69K across the bottom to bite fast low in the second turn and take the point.

Once in front, Dewease threaded his way through traffic to get the win by 1.281 seconds.

“I think we need to be better than that,” said Dewease about his chances against the outlaws in the National Open next week, comparing his just completed run to the win against the competition he’ll face in the Open.

“The track was tricky tonight.”

Rahmer was second followed by Brian Montieth, who won the 2019 Diamond Series title by taking the podium spot.

Brian Brown rode home fourth followed by Matt Campbell in the Westbrook No. 1W.

Sixth through 10th went to Danny Dietrich, TJ Stutts, Ryan Smith, Cory Haas and Anthony Macri.

Heats went to Rahmer, Dewease and Montieth with Rahmer claiming the dash and Nicole Bower winning the consolation.

Matt Campbell set quick time over the 28 car field with a lap of 16.779 seconds.

Doug Hammaker would lead all 20 laps of the 358 sprint main to claim his third feature of the season at the track and ninth of his career at the oval.

The run came on top of the 2019 track title that he officially wrapped up by entering the night’s action.

Rich Eichelberger trailed Hammaker for the win the entire distance.

Kyle Denmyer, Matt Findley and Troy Wagaman Jr. rounding out the top five finishers.

Twin heats went to Eichelberger and Hammaker.

Logan Schuchart conquers Eldora Speedway for second time Schuchart earned his eighth career win of the season at Eldora, doubling his win total from the start of the season

DB3 photo
ROSSBURG, OH – Sept. 27, 2019 – Logan Schuchart entered Friday’s race at Eldora Speedway with an attitude. He felt like the half-mile speedway owned him.

He finished second for the third time in-a-row during the May event at the track. During the four July races there he finished third, third, fourth and second at the Kings Royal.

Schuchart craved a second win at the iconic track – his first came in 2017. He was a shark that sensed blood in the water. No one was going to keep him from his target. He and his Shark Racing team made sure of it.

Aside from Hot Laps, which were ran twice due to a two-and-a-half-hour rain delay before Qualifying, Schuchart won everything he could involving a sprint car Friday night. He set Quick Time, won his Drydene Heat race, drew the pole for the DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash, won the Dash and led all 30 laps in the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series Feature – earning his eighth victory of the season.

“This is definitely one, coming to Eldora, is one I always look forward to,” Schuchart said. “It’s been really good to us. We just haven’t been able to win one. So, to end our season at Eldora and win one is cool. Especially since I’ve had so many good runs and haven’t won one since 2017. It’s cool to win at this place any chance you get.”

While the Hanover, Pa.-native dominated the BeFour the Crowns Showdown, a Texan made him work for it. Aaron Reutzel – coming off a podium finish with the World of Outlaws at Jacksonville Speedway and setting the quickest lap in the second round of Hot Laps – hunted Schuchart throughout the Feature, in search of his first Series win at the speedway.

Schuchart launched ahead of the field on the initial start of the Feature with second-place Carson Macedo on his tail and Reutzel making his way to third. Before any of them could build momentum, the red flag came out before the completion of the first lap for Wayne Johnson flipping in turn three.

When the race restarted, Schuchart again shot to the lead with Macedo in pursuit. However, Reutzel put an end to Macedo’s chase in the first corner. He darted to the high side in turn one and charged off turn two with the ferocity of a speeding bullet, pulling alongside Macedo down the backstretch.

Macedo, a rookie, and Reutzel, a part-time driver in the Series, raced wheel-to-wheel for a lap before Reutzel outran Macedo into turn three and stole the runner-up spot on the second lap. Schuchart was half of a straightaway ahead of Reutzel. However, that gap vanished a few seconds later.

Another red flag came out for Brady Bacon wrecking in turn four on Lap two. It was the last time the field had to slow for an accident, though.

On the final restart of the night, with 28 laps to go, Schuchart pulled ahead of Reutzel by about two car lengths into the first turn and grew his lead to more than a second shortly after. By Lap nine Schuchart found himself in heavy lap traffic. Exactly what Reutzel needed.

As the Drydene No. 1s navigated its way through a maze of cars, the Folkens Bros. No. 87 of Reutzel crept closer every lap. Near the halfway point of the Feature, Reutzel found himself feet away from Schuchart’s bumper. But before he could attempt a pass, Schuchart found clean air and pulled away from him again.

The two drivers were an accordion for the remainder of the race. Reutzel would close on Schuchart and then Schuchart would pull away.

“At one time I thought we were going to be able to pass him,” Reutzel said about racing Schuchart. “Where I was making time around the bottom, that kind of went away for me. I started searching around and found sliding myself was pretty good. I got back to him one time, we got to a lap car that was trying to unlap himself or something and I was never able to get by that lap car and just kind of sat there the rest of the race. My car started to go away a little bit at the end, so that was the end of that.”

Having raced with Reutzel before and knowing his style, Schuchart anticipated where he thought the Texan might run and made sure he didn’t leave a door open for him.

“I was trying not to get held up too much or bonsai too many lap cars,” Schuchart said. “I figured if I did do that, he’d be close. I knew he would be, most likely on the top. Aaron is very fast, but a lot of the races that he wins he’s on the top. I was running through the middle and felt like I was slowing down a little and tried to get back to the top as quick as I could to not give him a chance to zoom around the outside of me.”

Schuchart’s plan worked. He held off Reutzel – who had to hold off a fast approaching Sheldon Haudenschild in the closing laps – and won his second career World of Outlaws race at Eldora Speedway.

“To have a year like this. To win races with the World of Outlaws is very, very tough,” Schuchart said. “To win eight of them and get another one here at Eldora, it means a lot to myself. I know it means a lot to everybody else.”

Before the start of the season Schuchart had eight career wins over a five-year span. Now, he’s doubled that statistic in one season. He and his Shark Racing team definitely have an attitude this year. An attitude to win.

He wasn’t the only driver with a big night at Eldora. Brad Sweet earned the KSE Hard Charger award by starting 17th and finishing sixth, and he took the points lead from 10-time Series champion Donny Schatz – who finished 17th. Sweet now leads Schatz by four points.

CAPITALIZING ON THE MOMENT: Carson Macedo wins thrilling show at Jacksonville Speedway

Josie McIntyre photo
Rookie Carson Macedo knows if he wants to be an established World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series driver and stick around the Series for a while, he needs to win races.

That mentality was ingrained in the young Lemoore, Calif.-native Wednesday night at Jacksonville Speedway when he out dueled Sheldon Haudenschild and Brad Sweet in an elbows up brawl to earn his fourth victory of the year.

“I can’t say enough about this (Kyle Larson Racing) team,” Macedo said. “Fourth win this year. I’m super stoked. Happy for them. Happy to get wins. That’s what it takes out here.”

Macedo was fast all night in his Chevrolet Accessories No. 2 car, qualifying second, winning his Drydene Heat race and finishing second in the DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash. However, Haudenschild was always one step ahead. The Stenhouse Jr.-Marshall Racing driver set Quick Time, won his Drydene Heat race and won the Dash over Macedo by four seconds.

The two young guns of the Series – in their first Feature race at the quarter-mile Jacksonville Speedway ­­– were set to duel. And they did.

Neither was willing to sacrifice an inch on the initial start, staying wheel to wheel as they crept toward the white start line. When it came time to hammer the throttle Haudenschild gave his more love than needed, showing the complete under belly of his NOS Energy Drink No. 17 as he powered to the flag stand. That allowed Macedo to get a run on the Wooster, Ohio-native into the first corner and take the lead.

Haudenschild dove underneath Macedo into turn three and nosed in front of him through turn four. However, he did another wheelie on the exit of the turn, allowing Macedo to charged back out front. Haudenschild would not let the Californian get away, though. He stayed on his bumper down the straightaways and could power to his inside every corner.

The quarter-mile track was proving to be fun for some and tricky for others, as several cars bounced off the cushion in turn four or over throttled their way into the corner causing them spin – or nearly do so. The fastest line was around the top, against the cushion – a line most comfortable for Macedo and Haudenschild.

Two cautions came out in the first 12 laps of the 40-lap Feature. Macedo was able to launch ahead of Haudenschild on both restarts, but the Ohio driver continued to pester Macedo each lap. The Kyle Larson Racing car was rarely out of reach.

On Lap 14, Macedo did a quick wheel stand off turn four, allowing Haudenschild, with a full steam of momentum, to throw a slide job into turn one and exit turn two with the lead.

Three more cautions came out between Lap 18 and 21 for drivers either spinning or coming to a stop on the track. On the restart with 19 laps to go, Haudenschild rocketed out front. Macedo spun his tires and got passed by Shane Stewart for second.

Macedo wasn’t willing to let the win slip away. To continue to establish himself, he needed it.

Finding grip on the bottom of the speedway, Macedo charged his way back by Stewart and looked to find his rhythm to catch Haudenschild. He didn’t have to put too much effort into it though. Another caution came out a few laps later for several cars colliding in turn four and blocking the track.

On the restart with 15 laps to go, Macedo was now pestering Haudenschild. He poked his nose underneath him each corner, ready to capitalize on any mistake Haudenschild made. And with 14 laps to go Haudenschild made one.

He slid his car too far up the track in turn four, hammering the cushion with his right rear tire and lifting the front of his car off the ground. With a clean run around the bottom, Macedo raced by the upset NOS Energy Drink car and reclaimed the lead.

“You get through there (turn four) really nice if you hit it right, but a couple of times you get tight on the right rear and get into it too much and throw your front end into, so you just had to be really careful,” Macedo said. “Get your entry right. Make sure you had the car turned enough and enough throttle to get through there on the cushion. My car was really good. Especially late in the race. I felt like I kept gaining momentum and gaining speed. That’s what you want.”

While Macedo and Haudenschild continued their close battle for the lead, Sweet, Aaron Reutzel and Donny Schatz were slowly making their way to the front. After Stewart spun, with 10 laps to go, Sweet moved into the position with Reutzel also moving up to fourth and Schatz to fifth. Four laps later, heartbreak for Haudenschild. He too spun, bringing out the caution.

With six laps to go, Macedo now found himself having to hold off Sweet ­– who moved up from seventh to second ­– Reutzel – who moved up from eighth to third – and Schatz – who charged from 17th to fourth.

It proved to be a task he was up to. He pulled away from the field on the restart and comfortably cruised his way to his first win Jacksonville Speedway victory – in his first official start at the track. Sweet remained second and Reutzel rounded out the podium. Haudenschild ended the night 15th.

Macedo credits some of his success to having grown up in California where there are several small bullring sized tracks like Jacksonville Speedway.

“Growing up there, you either get good on small tracks or you get beat because that’s a lot of what we have,” said Macedo, who won on the quarter-mile Silver Dollar Speedway in March. “I guess it just helps to be from California when you go to places like these.”

Sweet, of Grass Valley, Calif., also benefited by picking up another podium finish and continuing to chip away at Schatz’s points lead. The 10-time Series champion now leads Sweet by 18 points.

“It was a bit of a marathon, but we’ll take a second-place run,” Sweet said. “We had a lot of battling to get where we got to. A lot of missing wrecks. Missing some spinning cars. And avoiding contact. It was nice to get the finish.”

Coming into the season Macedo’s goal was to win a few races. Now, having exceeded that goal, his latest win helps he and his team realize their ultimate goal.

“We’re building,” Macedo said. “This is a five-year, six, seven, eight-year plan to try and be at the top at some point. That’s what we’re trying to do. To be out here winning races and build toward next year… it’s all building blocks. We couldn’t be happier.”

Aaron Reutzel scores 15th All Star victory of 2019 in dominating fashion at Hagerstown Speedway

Josie McIntyre photo
HAGERSTOWN, Md. (September 22, 2019) - For the first time in over 36 years, the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 made their presence at the half-mile at Hagerstown Speedway in Hagerstown, Maryland. The near-four decade hiatus may have created some uncertainty for many of the full-time All Stars attempting to tackle the northern Maryland oval, but if one thing was for certain at the conclusion of Sunday’s visit, nobody was a match for Clute, Texas’ Aaron Reutzel.

Reutzel, driver of the familiar Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports/Folkens Brothers Trucking/Dissolvalloy/Fischer Body Shop/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/No. 87 sprint car, started from the pole position on the Hagerstown grid and never missed a beat, eventually leading all 30 circuits while maintaining a lead pushing four circuits during different segments of the main event. For Reutzel, the $5,000 triumph increases his season win count to 15, five of which taking shape during the month of September.

In addition, the Hagerstown Speedway victory all but sealed Reutzel’s 2019 All Star championship fate. Taking into consideration his 148-point lead over Dale Blaney, a simple qualifying attempt during the Eldora Speedway finale on Saturday, September 28, will make his title official.

“We had a phenomenal race car, that’s for sure,” Aaron Reutzel explained in Hagerstown Speedway victory lane. “I felt like I could go anywhere. When you have a car that good, you can kinda go around there at your own pace and save your stuff. Having a tire at the end is a big deal in racing today. The way these race tracks are out here, you have to have a tire at the end.”

Reutzel’s campaign at the front of the field was interrupted by a pair of cautions, one on lap seven and another on lap 21. Despite each of the stoppages snapping commanding leads, just over two seconds on lap six and just under three seconds on lap 20, Reutzel remained collected. In fact, the only instance of pressure from a fellow competitor occurred during a segment of green flag action in traffic when Danny Dietrich, who started third on the grid, drove into second on lap 15, next setting his aim on Reutzel. The Gettysburg, Pennsylvania-native was able to continue to use slower cars to a slight advantage, ultimately chopping Reutzel’s four-second command down to 2.9 seconds just before the lap 21 caution.

Although the ensuing restart set-up a prime opportunity for Dietrich to pounce, his speed proved no match for Reutzel’s mobility in clean air. The Texan quickly escaped and built a lead that equaled 2.59 seconds by the time the final checkers flew.

Freddie Rahmer followed Dietrich and Reutzel to the finish, with Dale Blaney and Brian Brown in tow.

“I have bills to pay,” Aaron Reutzel laughed when discussing a successful last few weeks. “We are all out here having fun, but we continue to work really hard. We want to win. The whole team wants to win. And we have a lot of people who help make this all possible, my crew, Cheeseburger and Jim Bob, included.”

Last on the schedule, but packed with plenty of prestige, Tony Stewart’s All Star Circuit of Champions will conclude their 2019 campaign with one final stop in the Buckeye State, set to invade the World’s Greatest Dirt Track for the 48th running of the 4-Crown Nationals.

Joining the stage with all three national touring divisions of the United States Auto Club (USAC), Tony Stewart’s All Star Circuit of Champions will invade the highbanks of Eldora Speedway on Saturday, September 28. Not only will the Series crown a 2019 champion, but the 4-Crown Nationals program will award a $5,000 payday.

Williams Grove Champion Racing Oil National Open Plays Big Role In 2019 WoO Title Chase

Oct. 4 & 5 Open Races Will Find World Of Outlaws Contenders Primed For $65,000 Payday

Bill McIntyre photo

For Immediate Release

Mechanicsburg - The final invasion of the season by the World of Outlaws NOS Engergy Drink Sprint Cars Series is coming up in just two weeks at Williams Grove Speedway when the oval hosts the 57th annual Champion Racing Oil National Open on October 4 and 5 at 7:30 pm.

The outlaws stars will hit the track for the two-day show that will close the 2019 season at the oval.

But just who will be leading the traveling band into the stand could be the subject of some debate.

While perennial series champion Donny Schatz currently leads the series point standings, its Brad
Sweet who holds the reins as the winningest driver on the tour this year, holding 15 wins to Schatz’s nine.  .

In fact, the point lead was Sweets for a good part of the season before Schatz moved ahead.

And that will bring the duo and the rest of the outlaws stars into Williams Grove for a battle of supremacy against the Pennsylvania Posse in two weeks as they race for a $65,000 payday in the Saturday 40-lap Champion Racing Oil National Open.

For North Dakota’s Schatz, the pendulum may be swining in his favor at the track after he won for the first time there in July in more than four years.

Californian Sweet’s fortunes on the other hand are hoped to improve as he seeks to win at Williams Grove Speedway for the first time ever although he certainly has been on the podium, most recently in July.

If any time is the right time for Sweet to score his first win at Williams Grove, this Open will be it.

With its unrivaled depth in the fields of cars that assemble for it, the Williams Grove Champion Racing Oil National Open could prove pivotal to both drivers’ 2019 series title hopes.

Schatz already owns five National Open victories in his career.

Other top series contenders for victory when Open action unfolds in two weeks include David Gravel, who cut his teeth on the oval dirt as he learned the ropes of 410 sprint racing.

Gravel, a two-time Open winner already in his career, is currently third in series points and won at the track in May before pushing his current season win total to eight including the Knoxville Nationals.

Logan Schuchart too has been having a career season with the series in 2019 currently holding at seven wins on the year.

Schuchart’s car owner and grandfather, Bobby Allen, won the 1975 National Open.

Daryn Pittman, who has never won the Open but who has plenty of experience and success at the track and who always runs strong when he races there as an invader, is not to be discounted among top traveling Open contenders this year.

Though not an outlaw, touring driver and All Stars titlist Aaron Reutzel also has to be considered a contender after just picking up two series victories at the track in a month’s time.

The Texan cemented himself as the first ever All Stars driver to win an All Stars event at the oval since the series first raced there in 1970.

After the September 20 race at the track, Brian Montieth has stolen the Hoosier Diamond Series point lead away from Danny Dietrich by 65 points.

If he is able to hold on to the lead and claim the series title, it would be Montieth’s first since the series began in 1999.

The 410 sprints will compete in time trials, heats and a dash to set the main event starting lineup.

 Gates will open at 5:30 pm.

Adult general admission for the program is set at $17 with youth ages 13 – 20 priced at $10.  Kids ages 12 and under are always admitted for FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.

Brian Montieth gets by Aaron Reutzel to score Dirt Classic 6 victory worth $20,000

Josie McIntyre Photo
ABBOTTSTOWN, Pa. (September 22, 2019) - Earning a second $20,000 Dirt Classic victory at the ‘Fabulous’ Lincoln Speedway is a feat in itself, but to hold back a hard-charging Danny Dietrich, as well as one the nation’s leading sprint car winners, Aaron Reutzel, in the process is down right impressive.

Known as ‘The Edge,’ Brian Montieth, a name certainly synonymous with victories and championships in the Pigeon Hills, accomplished such a feat, leading the final 16 circuits on Saturday night, September 21, to secure his place in Dirt Classic history, again.

“The boys do all of their homework. I’m just the lucky one who gets to stand up here,” a humble Brian Montieth said in Lincoln Speedway victory lane, who earned his first Dirt Classic title in 2015. “All the work is done at the shop through the week. I just can’t thank everyone enough.”

Although starting from the pole position, Montieth, driver of the H&H Contractor/XXX Chassis/Beerhill Gang/No. 21 sprint car, did not take command for the first time until lap 25, wrapping-up what turned out to be a 24-lap battle with recent Tommy Classic winner and current Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 point leader, Aaron Reutzel.

Utilizing his well-known line around the outer edge of the speedway, Montieth stalked Reutzel lap after lap before executing his winning move in turns three and four, eventually slingshotting around the 14-time All Star Circuit of Champions winner in 2019 to take control before the leaders raced back to the flatstand.

A red flag period on lap 11 for Dillsburg’s Anthony Macri, who was battling within the top-five at the time of the caution, incidentally set the stage for Montieth’s eventual takeover. The ensuing restart allowed Reutzel the opportunity to control in clean air, but Montieth stayed in his tracks, eventually knocking down Reutzel’s command that pushed to 1.5 seconds on lap 17 to less than a second by lap 20.

By lap 21, the top-two, as well as Dietrich, who raced into third from 18th on lap 13, were under a blanket. With slower traffic now creating a road black for Reutzel around the bottom of the speedway, Montieth jumped to the top and made his move, executing his slingshot action in turn three of lap 25.
“This is great for the team leading into the next few weeks,” Brian Montieth said. “Honestly, leading here sucks in lapped traffic. Aaron (Reutzel) was doing everything he had to do. I just got lucky and was able to get around him.”

Using a last lap pass to also get around Aaron Reutzel, Dietrich chased Montieth to the final checkers, followed by Reutzel, Freddie Rahmer and Brian Brown. The All Star triumph bumps Montieth’s win total to five with the Series, four of which at Lincoln Speedway.

“Love me or hate me, sounds like everyone enjoyed that one,” an elated Danny Dietrich said. “I feel like all we can do is run second here. Maybe next year we can do one better.”

A quick drive south of the Mason-Dixon will lead the All Star Circuit of Champions to their third and final destination of the weekend: Hagerstown Speedway in Hagerstown, Maryland. Although a staple on the annual Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek schedule, Hagerstown Speedway has not hosted an All Star program since 1983, but that will change on Sunday, September 22, when the Series invades for a shot at $5,000.
