Williams Grove To Honor Famed No. 12 Car Owner Bob Stewart And His Career Bob Stewart Tribute Sprint Car Race Is Friday



Mechanicsburg – Friday night’s race at Williams Grove Speedway for the 410 sprint cars will honor one of the tracks most successful sprint car owners in history, Mr. Bob Stewart of York.

Aaron Reutzel outruns Danny Dietrich to become first repeat All Star winner at Bedford Speedway

BEDFORD, Pa. (August 30, 2020) - The first seven visits to Bedford Speedway resulted in seven different winners, but two-time and defending Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 champion, Aaron Reutzel, crossed into the mult-time threshold on Sunday night and claimed a second Bedford Speedway feature win, doing so over Central Pennsylvania rival and recent Series winner, Danny Dietrich. The All Star victory, accompanied by a $5,000 top prize, was Reutzel’s ninth of the 2020 season, well on his way to a third consecutive Series championship with 11 events remaining on the schedule.

“I really can’t say enough about this team. I can’t be more proud of them,” Aaron Reutzel said, driver of the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports, Folkens Brothers Trucking, Fischer Body Shop, Hollywood Blasting and Coating, Precision Catalyst, No. 87 sprint car. “To come back after everything that’s happened, and to win like we did, I couldn’t be more proud of everyone involved. We are really proud of this one tonight.”

Despite starting from the pole position, Reutzel did not lead from start to finish. In fact, the Clute, Texas-native lost the initial battle for the top spot, allowing Dietrich, who started from the outside-pole position, to drive away and lead the first two circuits. A caution on lap three would act as Reutzel’s saving grace, giving the championship hopeful a second chance at controlling the field.

Reutzel’s ensuing restart went off without a hitch, nearly tied to the back bumper of the Gary Kauffman Racing entry as the lead duo raced by the single-file restart cone. Keeping that momentum handy, Reutzel immediately dove to the bottom of turn one and slid across the nose of Dietrich, officially capturing the lead at the exit of turn two.

Although finding a few opportunities to catch Reutzel in traffic, Danny Dietrich would have to settle for second, followed by Paul McMahan, Brent Marks and Cory Eliason.

“I knew I wanted to be right on his back bumper when we came down for the restart. The smart thing for (Dietrich) to do would have been to slide himself, but he left the door open for me and I was able to go in there and slide him,” Reutzel continued. “I knew that restart was going to mean everything because clean air was so important here tonight. Regardless, we had a phenomenal race car. I just couldn’t be more proud.”

'GOOD TO BE BACK': Brad Sweet Returns To Victory Lane At I-80 Speedway The reigning champion is now tied with Logan Schuchart for the championship points lead


GREENWOOD, NE — Aug. 30, 2020 — With half of a lap to go before Brad Sweet could see the checkered flag at I-80 Speedway Sunday night, yellow lights flashed around the track.

An accident between two cars racing for 18th evaporated the reigning champion’s 3.8 second lead over Carson Macedo and induced flashbacks of horror.

The night prior he lost the win on the last corner of the last lap.

“I couldn’t believe, take the white flag and the caution comes out,” Sweet said. “I thought, ‘Well, maybe it’s not meant to be.’”

It had been 57 days since his seventh win of the season at Cedar Lake Speedway in early July. Since then, he’s endured multiple nights of bad luck – suffering four DNFs – and heartbreak from wins that never were.

A green-white-checkered finished extended his anxiety an extra lap, making the Feature 31 laps in total.

He didn’t let that faze him, though. When the green flag reappeared for the final time of the night, Sweet mastered his throttle better than the field behind him and launched to about a four-car-length lead ahead of Macedo. From then on, he only extended it, giving no one the opportunity for a last lap pass. He crossed the finish line with a 1.5 second lead to claim his eighth win of 2020, his first at I-80 and 58th career Series win.

“It’s been some trying times,” said Sweet, of Grass Valley, CA. “This NAPA Auto Parts team never gives up. We’ve gone through DNFs and race cars and wild crashes. You know, things that we’re not accustom to. But that’s the adversity of the World of Outlaws tour. Never giving up and trying to stay positive each and every night. We lost a heartbreaker last night, so it is really easy to get down and get frustrated. But come back here and get the car better and better all night.”

The Kasey Kahne Racing team unloaded a dominate car for Sweet Saturday night, but on Sunday at I-80 they had to work toward that. He started the night with a 12th place qualifying effort and was able to translate that into a second place run in his Drydene Heat Race. Sweet managed to find the runner-up spot, again, in the DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash, however Dash winner Jacob Allen showed he had a car capable of delivering him his first career win.

That thought continued in the first 12 laps of the Feature with Allen able to fend off attacks from Sweet and Macedo.

After a restart with 18 laps to go, Sweet’s car came to life. He dove under Allen into Turn 3 and took the lead from him off Turn 4 to officially lead Lap 13. However, Allen got a run back underneath the NAPA Auto Parts #49 car and bolted back ahead of him into Turn 1.

Allen was unable to hold his car straight off the corner, allowing Sweet another run back underneath him. The two performed a ballet of slide jobs through Turns 3 and 4 with Sweet first sliding in front of Allen on the entrance of the corner to take the top lane and Allen throwing his car down into the corner before sliding back in front of Sweet on the exit of Turn 4.

Sweet cut back underneath Allen down the straightaway and rocketed ahead of him into Turn 1 to claim the lead and run away with it. Allen was then left to fend off his teammate Logan Schuchart, who had made his way from 14th to third, and Macedo in fourth.

As the laps clicked off, Allen eventually faded to sixth while Macedo fought his way back to second and Schuchart, in third, had his hands full with Sheldon Haudenschild – who worked his way up through the field from 18th.

Sweet found traffic late into the Feature and experienced little hinderance from them. Macedo cut a few tenths of a second off Sweet’s lead in the closing laps but had nothing for his fellow Californian once Sweet found clean air. The defending champion was on his way to a near four second victory.

Then, the caution came out. His apparent victory went on hold. Macedo had one last chance to get his second win of the year. However, Sweet had enough of heartbreak. He perfected the restart, picked up the $10,000 check and trophy and left Macedo to wonder, “what if.”

“I feel bad,” said Macedo, of Lemoore, CA. “My guys did a really good job. I felt like I had a car good enough to win there. I really made poor decisions on restarts I felt like… I felt like I was gaining on Brad a little bit and got into the fence over there in (Turns) three and four. I was driving super hard to try and get back by him. That’s the way it goes. He did a great job. That’s why he’s a World of Outlaws champion and I had a lot of fun racing with him.”

Schuchart was able to hold off Haudenschild – who earned the KSE Racing Hard Charger Award for coming from 18th to fourth – and finish third for the second night in a row, after having to change a motor before his Drydene Heat Race. He’s now tied with Sweet for the championship points lead.

“We had a fast race car, just some issues early in the night we had to fight through and keep on pushing,” said Schuchart, of Hanover, PA. “This is what it all come down to. You’re going to have bad nights. You’re going to face adversity and get back up there. That’s what this Drydene Performance Products race team did.”

Lance Dewease Scores Selinsgrove 5K Jack Gunn Memorial Saturday, Gives Owner Kreitz First Trip Back To Oval Winner’s Circle In 27 Years Yoder and Lawton share stock car wins

 Selinsgrove, Pa. – Lance Dewease of Fayetteville drove to victory in the 30-lap Jack Gunn Memorial for 410 sprint cars at Selinsgrove Speedway on Saturday night, scoring the $5,000 payday aboard the Don Kreitz Jr.-owned No. 69K for the 15th win of his career at the oval.

In the 20-lap limited late model main, Andrew Yoder of Middleburg scored for the third time this season at the track to pick up $1,200 for the win that was also his 10th overall of the season.

And in the roadrunner feature, Curtis Lawton raced with Jake Jones for the race right down to the final turn to get the win in the win.

Dewease started on the pole of the Jack Gunn Memorial for sprint cars flanked by Dylan Cisney and raced to stay ahead of Cisney as the pair jetted into the first turn when action began.

Dewease entered the rear of the field on the sixth tour and watched as Cisney darted to his inside as the pair rode into turn one.

However the leader was able to fend off the challenge and sling back around to hold command onto the backchute just before the first caution period of the race occurred on the same lap.

On the restart, Anthony Macri blasted under Cisney for second only to see Cisney sling around and reclaim the spot not once, but twice as the pair executed the same moves again the next time around.

The race was then again slowed with nine laps completed for a spin, finding Cisney, Macri, Brock Zearfoss and Mark Smith lined up for the new green.

Dewease avoided a challenge on the restart as Macri again went after Cisney only this time Macri proved successful, securing second on lap 11.

Jay Galloway then slowed with 17 laps to go, again bunching the field.

Dewease kept Macri at bay as the race went through the mid-stages and again entered traffic with six laps to go.

A final yellow flag slowed the pace with four laps to go only to see Dewease pull out to a 3.359 second advantage at the finish over Macri.

The checkered flag was Dewease’s first at the track since 2014 and it marked car owner Don Kreitz’s first trip to victory lane at the track in 27 years when he last took an oval win albeit as a driver.

Cisney was third followed by Zearfoss and Jeff Halligan.

Sixth through 10th went to TJ Stutts, Lucas Wolfe, Mark Smith, Justin Whittal and Kyle Reinhardt.

Heats went to Cisney and Macri.

Andrew Yoder was chased by Jared Fulkroad all through the limited late model main but Yoder proved flawless in the event.

For the last half of the race, the machines of Joe Lusk, Jim Yoder and Danny Snyder staged a three-way race for fourth with Yoder holding the spot at times.

In the end as Andrew Yoder took the win by .695 seconds over Fulkroad, Lusk and Jim Yoder rode home fourth and fifth with Mike Smith crossing the line in third.

Sixth through 10th went to Danny Snyder, Todd Snook, JR Toner, Kevin Probst and Matt Murphy.

Heats went to Andrew Yodeer, Toner and Harold Ranck.

Scott Dunham Jr. led the first two laps of the roadrunner main before fifth starter Curtis Lawton got control and began a battle with Jake Jones.

Jones went out front on lap five and then was pressured by Lawton the rest of the distance for the win.

The duo raced side by side for lap 11 and crossed the start/finish line in a dead heat for control.

Lawton then stuck inside Jones through the first turn and down the backstretch before clawing his way out front as the pair traversed the fourth corner.

Lawton then surged to the line to steal the win away from Jones.

Daren Rice finished third followed by Keith Bissinger and Dunham.

Heats went to Dunham and Rice.

Philo powers to Attica 410 win; Weaver earns 5th 305 victory; Valenti again in trucks

 ATTICA, Ohio – Travis Philo blasted from sixth to third on the opening lap of the 410 A-main Saturday, Aug. 29 at Attica Raceway Park, then hounded Cale Conley for several laps before driving into the lead on lap 18 and drove away to his sixth career victory at “Ohio’s Finest Racing” speedplant.

“This whole year has kind of been crazy. I want to thank John Bores and Rex LeJeune and everyone at Attica and all the fans…it’s been a difficult year for all of us but we appreciate you for coming out here and supporting us so we can keep doing what we love,” said Philo beside his Control Design Solutions, Tire Slick, Integrity Auto Sales, Banshee Graphics, Shop Supply Services, Columbus Equipment, Bohmer Rentals, Classic Ink USA, Berryman Racing Shocks, Sprint Fun Photos, Smith Titanium, Kistler Engines, Kistler Racing Products backed 5T.

“Tonight was the only night I was pissed drawing a six for the redraw. I knew we were going to be good where ever we started. I knew we would come right through there…it came sooner than I thought. I can’t thank my guys enough…my dad, Jim Robey, Josh LaCombe..we have a really good car rolling now so hopefully this is good momentum for next week with the All Stars,” he added.

Fremont, Ohio’s Paul Weaver took the lead on lap 8 and only a late race caution kept him from dominating the Fremont Fence 305 Sprints A-main. That yellow flag with just two laps to go didn’t phase the three time Attica track champion as he took his fifth win of the year at Attica and the 54th of his career in the division.

“It’s an ’09 car…it’s been around awhile. The tubes are different in the back. When I get it right this thing just drives forward. I have to thank Bob Hampshire…we have to have a motor to pull this thing and this is the third different motor this season…I’ve won with three different motors,” said Weaver beside his B&B Drain Services, Hampshire Racing Engines, M&L Excavating, Seagate Sandblasting, Weaver Performance backed #1W.

After a lengthy delay following an opening lap crash that resulted in a driver being taken to the hospital complaining of neck pain, Shawn Valenti held off a late race charge from Jamie Miller to claim his second dirt truck feature win in a row. It was Valenti’s 20th career truck win at Attica.

“I looked up at the board and saw the 4M (Miller) was behind me and I wasn’t quite sure what to do on the restart and Jamie stuck his nose under me and made a race of it and made me get back on it. I want to thank A Plus Auto Center for putting up some extra cash, Roelle Fabrication, Scott’s Property Management, Craig Miller Trucking, Best Performance Motorsports, KS Sales & Service, Gressman Powersports, Dave Story Equipment and Speedways Bar and Grill for all their support,” said Valenti.

Cole Macedo and John Ivy brought the field to green for the 30-lap Callie’s Performance Products 410 Sprint feature with Ivy gaining the advantage over Cale Conley, Philo and Macedo. After a lap was complete the steering broke on Macedo’s machine as he spun in turn three with Max Stambaugh also spinning.

On the restart Conley drove around Ivy for the lead as Philo also pressured Ivy for second, taking the runner-up spot on lap three. Conley and Philo raced side by side for several laps. When the leaders hit lapped traffic on lap 13 Conley got hung up and Philo raced to his inside and took the lead a hand full of laps later.

Philo began to pull away from Conley as Nate Dussel moved into third with Ivy and Stuart Brubaker giving chase. The second and final caution flew on lap 23 but Philo raced to a fantastic restart and pulled away the final seven circuits for the win over Conley, Dussel, Ivy and DJ Foos.

Larry Kingseed Jr. jumped into a commanding lead at the drop of the green for the 25 lap Fremont Fence 305 A-main over Matt Foos, Weaver, Kasey Ziebold, Kody Brewer, Jamie Miller and Justin Lusk. Weaver moved into second on lap three and began to close the gap on Kingseed.

Weaver drove under Kingseed to take the lead on lap 11 as they raced into heavy lapped traffic with Foos and Miller battling for third and Ziebold and Brewer battling for fifth. Kingseed brought out the caution on lap 13 but Weaver was just too strong on the restart and once again pulled away over Foos, Miller, Ziebold and Brewer.

The final caution with just two laps to go gave the field one last shot at Weaver but again he raced away on an excellent restart to take the win over Foos, Miller, a charging Mike Keegan and Ziebold.

Following a multi-truck crash at the beginning of the dirt truck A-main, Jamie Miller jumped into the early lead over Jeff Babcock, Valenti, Brandon Stuckey, Brad Stuckey, Keith Sorg and Dan Hennig. Miller, Babcock and Valenti pulled away and waged a terrific battle for the lead with Valenti taking the top spot on lap three.

Valenti pulled away as Miller, Babcock and Steve Sabo raced hard for the runner-up spot. A caution with five laps to go put Miller right on Valenti’s rear bumper and when the green flew Miller charged to Valenti’s inside. Another caution a lap later and Valenti moved to the bottom of the track on the restart and was able to pull away from Miller with Sabo, Babcock and Brad Stuckey rounding out the top five.

Attica Raceway Park will host the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions Friday and Saturday, Sept. 4 and 5. On Friday, the All Stars will battle for $5,000 to win on Murphy Tractor/Core & Main/Stillwater Metals Night with the Dirt Nerds Podcast/ UMP Late Models battling for $3,000 to win.

Spencer Bayston goes wire-to-wire at Lincoln Speedway for Kramer Klash victory

 ABBOTTSTOWN, Pa. (August 29, 2020) - Forced to fend off a few of Central Pennsylvania’s elite, as well as the two-time and defending Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 champion, Lebanon, Indiana’s Spencer Bayston cruised into Pennsylvania Posse Country on Saturday night and left a winner, scoring the inaugural Kramer Klash at the “Fabulous” Lincoln Speedway for a $7,300 payday. The wire-to-wire victory, leading all 35 circuits in the Pigeon Hills, pushed Bayston’s All Star win total to three, his first since dominating an Ohio Sprint Speedweek program at Muskingum County Speedway on June 22, 2017.

Clute, Texas’ Aaron Reutzel battled ahead from sixth to finish second, followed by Brian Montieth, Tim Wagaman and a hard-charging Cory Eliason, who worked his way forward from 15th.

“I’m going to have to go back and watch this one again, because I feel like I was pretty ugly in traffic,” Spencer Bayston said jokingly in Lincoln Speedway victory lane, driver of the Swindell Speedlab, Bear Archery, John Christner Trucking, No. 39 sprint car. “I kept hearing guys behind me, but I just tried to keep my eyes ahead and stay focused. I don’t have enough laps yet to have enough confidence to drive through traffic as hard as I should. But man, this car; every time I had the chance to drive it, we had speed. We had speed right out of the gate tonight.”

It was Aaron Reutzel who applied the pressure during the final 14 circuits of the 35-lap contest, but it was Gettysburg’s Danny Dietrich who applied the pressure during the first 21 circuits, utilizing the outside-pole position to power into second right from the drop of the green flag. Using every inch of Lincoln’s configuration, Dietrich did everything he could to track down the Swindell Speedlab entry, eventually reaching the back bumper of the well-known No. 39 in traffic with 12 laps clicked off the counter.

By lap 17, the top three were battling under a blanket, now including Aaron Reutzel, who dived below multi-time track champion, Brian Montieth, to claim third just two laps prior.

Banging the topside of the speedway, the frontrunners continued their nose-to-tail battle for several circuits, that until Dietrich set-up, and partially executed, his first, true takeover attempt on lap 22. As the lead pair were entering turn one, Bayston stayed high, ultimately opening the bottom lane for Dietrich. The former Lincoln Speedway track champion took advantage and pulled off a perfect slider to get by Bayston, but to Dietrich’s demise, a lapped car was blocking his path causing the familiar No. 48 to spin. The 360-degree spin forced Dietrich to retire to the tail of the field. Reutzel inherited second with Montieth following suit; that is where they stayed.

“I know they were close there a few times,” Bayston continued. “Those cautions really did fall in our favor. Having a little luck on our side isn’t a bad thing. I’m very lucky and I’m proud to be a part of this team. To leave here tonight on top after watching these guys race all year is just incredible. I’m so happy right now.”

LET IT EAT: Sheldon Haudenschild Steals U.S. 36 Raceway Win On Last Corner The NOS Energy Drink driver earned his 10th career World of Outlaws victory

 OSBORN, MO — Aug. 29, 2020 — Sheldon Haudenschild could watch leader Brad Sweet enter a turn by the time he found a straightaway. More than two seconds separated the top two with seven laps to go Saturday night at U.S. 36 Raceway.

Both were on a mission to win. However, Sweet, the reigning champion, hadn’t won since the beginning of July. Haudenschild’s last victory was earlier this month.

That didn’t classify Haudenschild as being less determined or motivated, though. He proved that by keeping the NAPA Auto Parts #49 in his target for those final seven laps. And watched it fade to him.

With five to go, Sweet’s lead was down to about a second.

With three to go, nearing half of a second.

With one to go, Haudenschild was no longer polite with his throttle. He shocked Sweet and everyone watching by driving around the outside of Sweet in Turn 4 and then edged him by 0.118 seconds at the finish line to claim the win.

“That last lap, I just let it eat,” Haudenschild said about his show stopping performance in his first appearance at U.S. 36. “I didn’t know if we were going to crash coming to the checkered. I didn’t even know if it was the checkered or not honestly.”

The win is his third of the 2020 World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car season and 10th of his Series career – tying him with Danny Smith and Joe Gaerte for 42nd on the all-time wins list.

Sweet started the night as the early favorite, setting Quick Time in Qualifying, winning his Drydene Heat Race and winning the DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash. Haudenschild finished fifth in the Dash.

When the field of 24 cars commenced their duel for the win in the 35-lap Feature, Sweet bolted ahead to the early lead with points leader Logan Schuchart close behind him. Haudenschild maneuvered his way from fifth to third on the first lap, but David Gravel grab the final podium spot back five laps later.

Heavy traffic became an obstacle for the leaders within the first six laps and cost Sweet the lead for about 20 seconds. Austin McCarl spun in Turn 2 in front of the leaders, blocking Sweet’s favored low line. That allowed Schuchart to throttle around the outside of Sweet and take the lead down the backstretch. The Shark Racing driver’s moment of glory ended by the time they reach Turn 4 again as Sweet powered back by the Drydene #1S for the lead.

Once Schuchart lost the lead, he got sucked into Gravel and Haudenschild’s duel, creating a three-car battle for second. The trio went three wide in Turn 1 and resulted in Schuchart holding second off the corner and Haudenschild moving back ahead of Gravel for third.

The next corner, Haudenschild and Schuchart took Sweet three wide for the lead on the exit of the Turn 4. Sweet was able to maintain the lead with the run he got off the high side of the corner and Haudenschild edged Schuchart for second at the line before the caution came out.

Haudenschild took advantage of his opportunity to line up alongside Sweet on the restart. Using the provided high line to his advantage, he powered alongside Sweet in Turn 4 and snuck ahead of him down the front stretch to take the lead for the first time – a move that foreshadowed his future.

With 18 laps to go, Haudenschild’s hopes for another victory looked to be tarnished when he bounced off the cushion in Turn 2 and allowed Sweet an easy pass for the top spot. Sweet pulled away to a straightaway lead and Schuchart was back on Haudenschild’s bumper.

Keeping his poise, Haudenschild was able to hold Schuchart behind him and get back into a rhythm of clicking off fast laps.

Heavy traffic became an issue again for Sweet in the closing circuits. He preferred the bottom lane, making his trek around the slower cars more difficult as many of them ran the same line. Haudenschild’s lane was a little clearer around the top, allowing him to shave off tenths of a second from Sweet’s lead every lap.

With seven laps to go, he was 2.5 seconds behind.

With three to go, down to about half of a second.

With one to go, the NOS Energy Drink #17 brought the Missouri crowd to their feet and kept the Series’ train of spectacular finishes rolling.

“It was tough,” Haudenschild said about running down Sweet. “I made one bobble over there (in Turn 2) and let Brad capitalize and get by me and ran away. We got to lappers there and they were running top and bottom pretty good pace. Kind of held Brad up there. And I got held up for a few laps. I really didn’t get close there until the white or two to go and just had to send it off (Turn) four.”

Sweet’s runner-up finish is his second in a row and his 22nd podium finish of the season.

“Hopefully I can get on the good side of one of these,” Sweet said. “Hopefully the fans enjoyed it. The NAPA Auto Parts car was good. I really felt like I drove a good race. Just got to those lap cars at the end and, obviously, Sheldon just… I had no idea we were coming to the checkered. But no excuses. You have to run every lap. I was full bore. Just hoping I had a good enough lead there.”

Sweet is now six points behind Schuchart, who finished third, for the championship points lead. And by rounding out the podium, Schuchart was able to break the tie for the team points lead with David Gravel finishing fourth – Shark Racing leads Jason Johnson Racing by two points for the team championship.

“You got to be consistent,” Schuchart said about going after the championship. “I would’ve liked to have raced for the win or have been up there putting on a show. But I felt like some restarts didn’t go our way. It’s a great run. We’re here on the podium. Another good run for this Drydene Performance Products race car.”

Haudenschild’s win helped elevate him in the Series points, as well. He is now up to fourth in points – 86 points behind Schuchart. And he’s no stranger to making late race charges to steal the win.

Big Shows on Tap for Clinton County Speedway

 Mill Hall, PA – The Clinton County Fair Association is pleased to announce some big shows scheduled for late September and early October to close out the 2020 season.  The Fair Association took over the weekly operations of the speedway and has held 10 races since opening on June 26th.

The first big race will take place on Saturday September 19th featuring the RaceSaver Sprint Cars and the Pro Stocks.  The Nittany Championship for the RaceSaver Sprint Cars is triple sanctioned by the Laurel Highlands Sprint Series, PA Sprint Series, and the Allegheny Sprint Series.   “We are expecting drivers from all three series and some of the best RaceSaver drivers ranked in the state and the nation,” says Race Promoter Jason McCahan.  “The event will pay $1,000 to the winner of the 40 lap main event.  Drivers will qualify through time trials and heat races.” Non-Qualifiers will also compete in a complete feature if more than 45 cars are in attendance. 

The current national RaceSaver Sprint Car points leader, Garrett Bard of Wells Tannery has been a regular at the speedway and has one victory so far this season at the 3/8th mile oval.  John Walp of Wapwallopen and Larry McVey of Bordentown, NJ are ranked second and third respectively behind Bard in the State of Pennsylvania’s point standing and have been contenders at Clinton County Speedway.  Bard is also the current point leader at Clinton County with Scott Lutz of Jonestown in second, Dale Schweikart of Linden in third, Dylan Proctor of Lock Haven in fourth and Jared Zionkowski of Wyalusing rounding out the top five.  Schweikart currently has two wins this season. Bard, Zionkowski, Jeffrey Weaver of Lock Haven currently have one victory each.    

In addition to the Sprint Cars on September 19th, the Pro Stocks will compete in the C.W. Smith Memorial paying $1,800 to win.  Smith from Williamsport competed in both ARCA and NASCAR.  “We are grateful for the opportunity to work with the Smith Family to honor C.W. and his racing accomplishments,” says McCahan.  The Pro Stocks will compete in a 40 lap main event and will also qualify with time trials and heat races.

“Our Pro-Stocks have been very competitive this year,” adds McCahan.  Seven different drivers have visited victory lane including Robert Tressler of Lock Haven (2), Bradley Benton of Duncansville (2), AJ Stroup of Evandale (2), Kevin VanAmburg of Lock Haven, Tommy Dawson of Wapwallopen, Brandon Moser of Millerstown, and Noah Jensen of Nescopeck.

The two events will be the largest races for the Pro Stocks and RaceSaver Sprint Cars.  Also, on the program will be the 270 Micro Sprints and the 4-Cylinders. Gates will open at 1PM with hot laps at 4PM and racing beginning at 4:30PM.  Sunday, September 20th will be a rain date.

On Saturday, October 3rd, the Super Late Models will compete in a $5,000 to win event presented by Strouse Electric of Bellefonte.  It has been several years since the speedway hosted a Super Late Model race.  The last large race of this magnitude was hosted in 2017 when Andrew Yoder of Middleburg won over a field of 50 plus cars.  The event will be the largest payout of the season for the speedway. Luke Hoffner of Turbotville is the all-time Super Late Model feature winner with 40 career wins.   

The Pro Stocks and 270 Micro Sprints will be in competition paying $500 to win each feature.  The 4 Cylinders will run under the SDRCA rules package and pay $750 to win.

Danny Dietrich opens All Star swing through PA with dramatic Thunder Cup win at Grandview

 BECHTELSVILLE, Pa. (August 27, 2020) - ‘Double-D’ Danny Dietrich defended Pennsylvania Posse Territory proudly on Thursday night and opened the four-day Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 swing through the Keystone State with a victory at Grandview Speedway. The second Series win of the season for the Gettysburg-native, Dietrich was forced to outduel two-time All Star champion and championship point leader, Aaron Reutzel, on his way to the Thunder Cup win, doing so in dramatic fashion with just one circuit remaining.

Dietrich, who was battling in the second position when the white flag was waved, made incidental contact with race leader, Aaron Reutzel, as the duo were entering turn one. The contact, Dietrich’s front bumper to Reutzel’s back bumper, caused the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports entry to lose grip and spin, ultimately allowing Dietrich to inherit the top spot. Dietrich survived the ensuing green-white-checkered restart to score the $5,000 payday. The Grandview Speedway win bumps Dietrich’s All Star career-win total to 13.

“We were really good. I wanted to win pretty bad,” Danny Dietrich said, driver of the Gary Kauffman Racing, Weikert’s Livestock, Sandoe’s Fruit Market, Pace Performance, Big Cove Whitetail Trophy Hunts, Drop Of Ink Tattoo, Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC, Self Made, Graver’s Garage, No. 48 sprint car. “Aaron (Reutzel) and I race each other pretty hard. I can’t thank my crew enough. These guys work hard all week to come out here and do this.”

Utilizing the pole position, Reutzel jumped to the early advantage with Freddie Rahmer, Paul McMahan and Danny Dietrich in tow. Reutzel maintained control for the first 20 circuits, keeping a firm grip on the field even after slower traffic appeared as early as lap eight. In the meantime, Dietrich was climbing, eventually sneaking by McMahan to take control of third on lap six, just before driving underneath Freddie Rahmer to snag second three circuits later.

A caution on lap 12 gave Dietrich the opportunity to restart on the tail tank of Reutzel. Despite clean air and a clear track for the Texan, Dietrich stayed glued to the No. 87, keeping pace as the duo found the back of the field yet again on lap 17.

On lap 21, Dietrich made his first bid for the lead, using momentum to blast around Reutzel at the exit of turn two. Not deterred by the move, Reutzel returned the favor on lap 24, also using momentum to blast around Dietrich to reclaim the top spot at the exit of turn two. Reutzel maintained control until lap 34, hugging the very bottom of the speedway where the faster groove seemed to be. With less than a car length separating the lead pair, the duo made the aforementioned contact entering turn one on the white flag lap.

“I think we had the better car,” Dietrich continued. “I could run way harder into the corner than (Reutzel) could. We have twin features tomorrow night. We’ll be back at it then.”

Christopher Bell, who climbed from fifth, chased Dietrich during the green-white-checkered finish, followed by Freddie Rahmer, James McFadden and Paul McMahan.

Brian Brown Secures Second Straight Knoxville Title With World of Outlaws Doubleheader on Tap


Inside Line Promotions - GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. (Aug. 27, 2020) - Brian Brown wrapped up his fifth career track championship and fourth in the 410ci sprint car division at Knoxville Raceway this week.

The half-mile oval in Knoxville, Iowa, recently announced the cancellation of the remainder of the 2020 season, officially crowning Brown with his second straight track title.

"It's always good to be a champion no matter what you do in life," he said. "We hadn't planned on running for a championship. With everything that happened with COVID-19 and the make-up races, it forced our hand a little to run as many as we could there. It just worked out for us. We had a solid year. We won some races there and felt like we were in contention every time.

"We have to get better when the money is on the line I feel like. Even though we run around there pretty good there's a lot more left that we can be better in different situations. We'll work hard to try to find some things and then put them to use next year when we get to Knoxville."

UP NEXT - Saturday at U.S. 36 Raceway in Osborn, Mo., and Sunday at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb., with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series

"It's been four or five years since the last time I was at U.S. 36 Raceway," Brown said. "It's not historically been my best track. We're going in there with a good attitude that someone is going to win $10,000 and someone will finish second, third, fourth. Why not us?

"I-80 is a place we've had a lot of success with the 360 over the years. We've won a lot of races there. I think the last time the Outlaws were there we finished in the top five. The main thing is we've had some issues getting qualified (this season). That has been the Achilles Heel, getting buried behind the eight ball. We're trying to unload something that is at the top of the board or at least close to the top of the board in qualifying."


40 races, 5 wins, 13 top fives, 22 top 10s, 28 top 15s, 31 top 20s
