ACCORD SPEEDWAY NEWS

Accord, NY - Accord Speedway Gets To The Point With Great Midweek Madness Racing Action
By: Steve Pados, Accord Speedway Media

After suffering through a week off from the throes of Mother Nature, the Accord Speedway got back on track last evening with another fabulous edition of their Midweek Madness program. Accord Speedway promoters Gary and Donna Palmer had the quarter mile speedplant in pristine racing condition and the seventy plus racers on hand tested every piece of the Ulster County real estate with an exciting exhibition of racing skill and guile. A couple of divisions fell off in the car count while many new faces made their way to the facility and the end result produced some great racing for the large crowd on hand who came out to witness the racing program. The event sets the stage for the upcoming Friday night action as the speedway salutes Independence Day with five divisions of racing headed up by the VP Fuels/Rhinebeck Ford Modified Division going to war for the $2,000.00 payday on the line for the victor. The wizard of illumination "Wild Bill" brings in his own special brand of sky lighting capabilities for the eleventh consecutive season and promises to top the fabulous extravaganza he presented last season to the fans. The evening of events will be co-sponsored by Cordova Plumbing and Heating and Barrett Plumbing and Heating and a couple of added attractions will create some additional excitement to the speedway grounds as "Insane" Shane McCain will present his zany show to the crowd before the fireworks action begins. With the rain also effecting last Friday night's action at the speedway as well, KB'S Racing Photos guru Kevin Berryman will host his fund raiser for the American Cancer Society on Friday with many drivers donating some of their race car body parts to the event for purchase with all proceeds going directly to the American Cancer Society. "The Statesman" Jerry Higbie and "Mr Excitement" Kevin Ward will have their race cars adorned in pink for the occasion and will be signing autographs prior to the start of the racing activity.

The racing action was swift and entertaining as newcomer Taylor Jennings made her first appearance of the season a successful one as she bested Kenny Phillips in the 0-50 Quad feature to bring a halt to the two week win streak Phillips enjoyed. The 51-90 Quad feature was reminiscent of last week's battle royal as two of the top racers from a season ago continued their battle with last night's show. The "Young Gasser" Griffin Robertson and "The Little Torch" Melissa Torchio provided the same fireworks as always as the pair raced close throughout the event. The outcome came down to the final laps of the event as Torchio pulled away to outdistance Robertson and go for the win for the third straight week. Dylan Dworak captured the 51-90 Mod Quad event

Stephen Reynolds pulled double duty for the evening as he raced his go kart for the final time and capped off his kart career with a convincing victory over Chad Cooper. Charles Lowther Jr and Jake Lowther captured wins in their first appearances of the season and Gary Huston was once again victorious in the Heavy Kart division. With the return of the bigger more powerful Quads to the speedway, a great selection of them were on hand for the racing action. Brandon Gates won the first event over the returning Andy Sier and Sier came back in the Open Experts shootout to claim the win over Gates in a nine Quad feature finale.
Second generation driver Pam Badaracco captured the 270 main in a recently purchased racer and was her first racing in the division. Pam is the daughter of former great competitor at Accord and the Mocatek raceways Larry Badaracco and it is great to see the tradition of the generations of racing continue in the sport today. Modified talent "Little" Richard Smith, a former Quad Champion at the speedway, returned to Quad action and was third in the first event and encountered some problems in the nightcap.

New faces but familiar names arrived at the speedway for the 600 clash and "The J-Shot" Jacob Hendershot left no doubt as to the outcome of the event as he powered away at the start and drove to his third straight win at the speedway. "The Goshen Gladiator" Joe Kata made his first appearance of the season and drove to a runner-up finish with another first timer Stephen Reynolds in third place and Terry Finney finishing up in fourth. Keystone stater Jim Black continued his success at the speedway as he raced to his third consecutive win at the speedway. "The Communicator" Matthew Gaughan was second in the event.

Slingshot racing action was once again the highlight of the evening as reigning Hamlin Speedway Junior Slingshot Champion "The Rockaway Rocket" Danny Buccafusca made his first appearance of the season a good one as he grabbed the lead at the opening bell and drove away from the field to capture his first All-Star Slingshot win of the season. Two-time Accord Speedway Jr Slingshot driving champion "The Gunslinger" Jesse Leiby was in for a solid runner-up performance as the talented field of drivers took to the incredibly smooth and multi-channeled raceway with ease and put on a great show for the fans. "The Warwick Warrior" Robbie Hocker and Peekskill, New Yorker Tyler Pirone put on a great dual with Hocker prevailing for third a close third and Pirone in fourth. Newcomer "Chargin" Charlie Shaver made his first Accord appearance and came away with a top five finish. Other newcomers on hand included Tyler Treacy, Shaina Barker and Jim Barrett who was aboard one of the Dubois racers.

Rookie Slingshot action found second generation hot foot Matthew Shultz taking his Liberty Rock Crushers mount to the lead at the outset and take the close win over Carly Dippel and Carly Velez who was driving one of the Advanced Concrete machines. "The Bullville Bandit" Tommy Zwart continued his winning ways as he led for a couple of laps until "The Midget" Chris Kurtz found the bottom seam of the speedway to his liking and blast into the lead. The lead was short-lived as Zwart in his Chessari Construction sponsored mount found a little extra in the right foot to power back by Kurtz before another lap was completed. "The Tornado" Tyler Johnston took up the chase and he and Kurtz raced hard together to track down Zwart until Johnston fell off the pace with a right rear sneaker losing oxygen. With Johnston leaving the action, another newcomer to the speedway Alex Shaffer found the Accord clay cushioned real estate to his enjoyment as he drove from eighth starting place to challenge along with former speedway champion Michelle Campbell. When the final checkered flag fell it was Zwart in for the win, his second of the season with Kurtz hanging tough in the runner-up role and the new kid on the block Alex Shaffer giving a great showing with a third place run in his initial showing at the speedway. Michelle Campbell was fourth and Collin Dubois rounded out the top five. A solid field of fourteen contenders made their way to Accord for the evening and the crowd showed their appreciation for the racers with great cheering going on during the cool down lap.

Junior Four Cylinder excitement found Tammy Ward winning the Dual Overhead Cam event and invader "Chi Chi" Enscarone finding a win in the Single Overhead Cam portion. Alan Houghtaling captured the senior portion of the Dual Overhead Cam event and Robert Beach captured his second straight Accord victory in a close finish over hard driving Walt Henry, Mike Travis and "Chi Chi" Enscarone.

Midweek Madness will continue from July 6th until August 31st every Wednesday evening. Gates open at the speedway at 5 PM with Hot Laps scheduled for 6:45. Racing is to start at 7:15 PM. Admission for the Wednesday shows is just $5.00 and the great concession stand is open throughout the racing card.

Friday night racing at Accord runs from April through September with six great divisions going to war on the Accord high banks. This week Cordova Plumbing and Heating and Barrett Plumbing and Heating will serve as the headline sponsors for the evening events and will feature the five regular divisions at the speedway plus the great Fireworks and the American Cancer Society promotion. Special Event ticket prices are in place on this evening. Admission for the great racing action remains the same from a season ago as Adults (12+) will be $12.00; Children (11 and under) will be $3.00. The Family Value Pack that was met with much success last season is once again offered and is: 2 Adults, 2 Children, and $20.00 in food vouchers for $40.00, a savings of $10.00 to the consumer. Pit Gates open at the speedway at 4:30 and Spectator Gates open at 5. Hot laps kick off at 6:30 and the racing is slated to start at 7 PM.

Big offerings are in store for the racing fans in the upcoming weeks at the speedway. July 1st will find the fireworks expert "Wild Bill" back in the house to unleash his special brand of magic to the skies over the Accord facility with his one of a kind light show and fireworks extravaganza. The event will mark the eleventh time that Wild Bill will be making his dynamite appearance at the speedway. The now famous Chicken BBQ will compliment the speedway's salute to Independence Day. "Insane" Shane McCain will be an extra added attraction for this great kick-off to Independence Day. Come early and enjoy the always spectacular racing and the great food the speedway is noted for.

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

Just A fact. . . . 95 Indianapolis 500's. . .. . 52 Daytona 500's. . . . 100 Thunder on the Hill Events!
14TH ANNUAL MODIFIED TRAFFIC JAM SANCTIONED BY ROC SET FOR GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY WEDNESDAY NIGHT, AUGUST 3RD

The 14th Annual TRAFFIC JAM returns to the Grandview Speedway on Wednesday night, August 3rd for the fourth race of the 2011 NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series. This event is rich in history and every TRAFFIC JAM has its' own special memory.

Last year, the story was all Craig VonDohren of Oley, PA taking the win after qualifying through the consolation and starting deep in the pack. VonDohren worked his way through traffic driving his small block modified against a field of big block modifieds. It was VonDohren's first TRAFFIC JAM victory and a very popular win as the crowd cheered on their local driver. The Wednesday night, August 3rd TRAFFIC JAM will be sanctioned by the Race of Champions (ROC) and will go a distance of 60 laps. The ROC Sportsman will be on the program as well. General admission for this event is $20 for adults, $5 for children 6-11 and kids under six will be admitted for free. The pit fee will be $30 and a license is not required. In the event of rain, Thursday night, August 4th will be the rain date. Gates will open at 5 PM with race time set for 7:30 PM.

The inaugural TRAFFIC JAM took place in 1998 and Brett Hearn earned the center podium position in victory lane. The following year, Jimmy Horton was the winner with Frank Cozze taking the win in 2000 as Timmy McCreadie earned his first TRAFFIC JAM win in 2001. Brett Hearn was the first repeat winner in 2002 with DIRTcar standout Billy Decker winning the TRAFFIC JAM in 2003. Timmy McCreadie returned to the always joyous Grandview victory lane in 2004 with Tim Fuller winning the event in 2005, Alan Johnson in 2006, Brett Hearn in 2007 and Billy Decker again in 2008. Brett Hearn scored his fourth TRAFFIC JAM win in 2009 with VonDohren the winner in 2010.

The modifieds will qualify through a series of heat race events and a consolation all leading up to the $5,000 to win TRAFFIC JAM. The ROC sportsman will share the program also qualifying through heat race events, a consolation and a 40 lap feature event.

One very special activity that takes place during the annual TRAFFIC JAM event is FAN FEST. Weather permitting, the track gate at the flag stand will swing open after the TRAFFIC JAM starting field is staged on the homestretch. With the starting field, spectators from the grandstands are invited to come on to the speedway and do a meet and greet with the TRAFFIC JAM drivers. Fans are encouraged to bring their camera's and even a program book to collect autographs and photos. Earlier in the night, race fans may also take part in the Inside/Out Promotion, allowing fans to watch the warm-ups from inside turn four. It's a great viewing location and you'll feel the ground vibrate when the modifieds power off turn four and charge down the homestretch.

Jason Covert Sweeps Three State Flyers Weekend

 

York Haven, PA (June 30, 2011) Barry Klinedinst Motorsports and multi-time regional series champion Jason Covert of York Haven, PA had a memorable weekend while sweeping the dual 'Red Nininger Memorial', Three State Flyers sanctioned events at Hagerstown Speedway on Friday, June 24 and Saturday, June 25 at Winchester Speedway.

 

Covert took the lead from Alan Sagi on a lap 14 caution and pulled away to collect his second win of the season at the famed Maryland oval. 'I'll just tell you, I wanted it more than those guys tonight,' Covert said. 'Barry (Klinedinst) and the guys worked their guts out to get this car ready. At 9 last night, it didn't have a body and no motor. All the credit goes to them. Racing Alan is always a pleasure but I got to the outside of him and I needed to get in front of him to get the air off his nose. There was one lane below me but we did get together. It was definitely my fault but we do have roll cages, seat belts and helmets in these things. We're not trying to crash, but are out there racing on the edge every night. A bad night here is better than a good day at work so I like being here.'

 

Jason started on the outside of the front row the next night at Winchester Speedway in Winchester, VA and grabbed the lead from pole sitter D.J. Myers on lap seven. Covert would methodically work his way through traffic for the rest of the event and capture his second Three State Flyers series win in two nights.

 

'It was a good weekend for us, no doubt about that,' a pleased Covert said, 'to go out and win two races like that, against that competition, says a lot about our race team, how hard they work to keep this race car underneath me. All the credit goes to those guys.'

 

The BK Motorsports Team will be in action this Independence Day weekend with the Three State Flyers series as they visit Bedford Speedway on Friday, July 1. Then it'll be off to Hagerstown Speedway on Saturday, July 2 for the 50-lap, Johnny Roberts Memorial and Hesston Speedway on Sunday, July 3 for the $5,000 to-win 'Hyper-Thunder by the Lake' sanctioned by both Three State Flyers and Unified Force Race Championship (UFo) Series.

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

MOTHER NATURE FAILS TO STOP 100TH NAPA AUTO PARTS THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES EVENT. . . . . .
TYLER WALKER AND DUANE HOWARD WIN THRILLERS BEFORE BIG CROWD TUESDAY NIGHT AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY

Even with Mother Nature sending threats of bad weather, the staff of the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series challenged all the odds and successfully presented their 100TH event on Tuesday night at the Grandview Speedway. "Tonight marked a milestone event and Bruce Rogers and I were determined to run this show, and the large crowd that turned out with threatening weather made it all even more meaningful", commented event Co-Promoter Bob Miller. Tyler Walker earned $5,000 for his win in the third event of the 2011 Pennsylvania 410 Sprint Speed Week Series. Duane Howard of Oley, PA sorted out the traffic in the 25 lap 358 Modified feature to score the win. A doom and gloom weather forecast did not dampen the spirits of the drove of fans that turned on for the historic 100th Thunder Series event.

In 410 sprint time trials, Stevie Smith set fast time in the ZEMCO sprint car. The three heat race events were won by Brent Marks, Chad Layton and Greg Hodnett. The 358 Modifieds ran timed warm-ups to determine the starting positions in their heat race events. Heat race winners included Sammy Piazza, Jimmy Horton IV and Ryan Godown as Craig VonDohren won the consolation.

The 410 Sprint feature brought the crowd to their feet at numerous times during the 35 lap thriller. Sam Hafostope set the early pace with May Thunder feature winner Brian Leppo hot in the chase. The Hafostope and Leppo battle came to an end on lap four when they tangled and flipped in turn three trying to avoid a slower car. Both drivers walked away uninjured but unable to restart the feature event. Daryn Pittman took over the lead at that point and immediately had to battle off Tyler Walker. The freight-train of talent was on a mission with Lance Dewease, Stevie Smith and Fred Rahmer in the hunt.

On lap nine, Walker caught Pittman and made a serious bid for the lead. Pittman fought back and held the lead spot. As Pittman and Walker battled for the lead, third place runner Lance Dewease inched closer, making it a three car battle for the lead.

The move of the race came on lap twenty-two as Walker used lapped traffic to his advantage to take the lead from Pittman. With five laps remaining, Walker and Pittman were still the front runners with Dewease a close third, Fred Rahmer fourth and Stevie Smith fifth.

The caution was displayed on lap thirty-three for Lance Dewease who stopped with a flat tire. The restart was a "hold on to your seat" thriller as Fred Rahmer passed Pittman for second charging into turn one. Down the backstretch, Rahmer began to reel in Walker with Rahmer on the bottom and Walker up high and against the boiler-plate. With the white flag waiving, Rahmer once again dove to the bottom of the track and came within a car length of Walker for the run down the backstretch. Coming off the fourth turn on the final lap, Rahmer made one more attempt for the lead but Walker came home the winner. Rahmer earned a well deserved second place finish with Pittman third, Brian Montieth fourth and Stevie Smith fifth.

In the twenty-five lap 358 Modified feature, Rick Laubach immediately took the lead at the drop of the green flag. Ryan Watt, Kevin Hirthler and Doug Manmilller where in a battle for second as Duane Howard in his BPG modified was charging to the front. By lap eight, Howard was fourth and one lap later, it was Laubach, Watt and Howard at the front of the pack.

With the halfway sign showing, Laubach remained the leader with Howard closing in lap by lap. Kevin Hirthler ran third with Ryan Godown fourth and Watt in fifth. Howard used the high groove and continued to close in on Laubach and with five laps remaining, the lead was up for grabs. On lap twenty-three, lapped traffic was a factor and Laubach got pinched down low and Howard took the high lane around the leader and the slower traffic. Laubach tried to recover the lost position but on the final lap Ryan Godown made the past for second.

Howard took the win in very impressive style with Godown a solid second and Rick Laubach third. Jeff Strunk finished fourth with Doug Manmiller fifth.

Come-From-Behind 11th-Place Finish In Lernerville Speedway’s Firecracker 100 Doesn’t Leave Chub Frank In A Good Mood

BEAR LAKE, PA – June 28, 2011 – Chub Frank might have salvaged a decent finish in last Saturday night’s fifth annual Firecracker 100 presented by GottaRace.com at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa., but he wasn’t in a good mood after the World of Outlaws Late Model Series event.

An 11th-place performance after starting 25th thanks to a WoO LMS points provisional certainly wasn’t what the veteran driver known as ‘Chubzilla’ wanted from his weekend at the four-tenths-mile oval in his home state.

“I’m not happy at all with how we ran,” said Bear Lake, Pa.’s Frank, who was the second driver one lap down at the checkered flag. “I don’t know what’s wrong with my car. I don’t know what the answer is.

“We ran the new car we’ve been running (at Lernerville in three weekly-show appearances over the past two months)…it’s been good so I thought we’d have something (for the Firecracker), but then we went out for that heat race (on Saturday night) and it was so bad that I couldn’t do anything. I should’ve had traction, but it had nothing. It was just sitting on top of the racetrack.”

Frank failed to make the cut through his heat (missed by three spots) and a B-Main (missed by two), so he had to rely on a provisional to get in the $30,000-to-win A-Main. He moved forward in the Firecracker 100, but not enough to satisfy him.

“It was O.K. in the feature, but it still wasn’t as good as it needed to be,” said Frank. “A lot of it (advancing) was just knowing where to run on the racetrack.”

The frustrating Firecracker 100 performance ended a tough weekend at Lernerville for Frank, who failed to seriously contend in either of the 30-lap WoO LMS preliminary A-Mains that led into the grand finale. He finished 18th in Thursday night’s event and ninth in Friday evening’s feature.

Frank felt his Corry Rubber/Hino Toyota/Horton Equipment Rocket No. 1* might have been at its best on Thursday night, when he won a B-Main and appeared ready to crack the top 10 until a faulty crank-trigger caused his motor to shut off. He lost multiple positions before he was able to refire the powerplant – and then, after gaining many of the spots back, he fell back again when he was nudged off the racetrack due to a racing scrape with Steve Francis.

Frank will attempt to get back on track this weekend with a holiday trip south to Tazewell (Tenn.) Speedway, where the WoO LMS will contest the inaugural ‘Outlaw Sizzler 101’ on July 2-3. The Sunday-evening 101-lap A-Main will pay $20,000 to win at the high-banked, one-third-mile oval, where Frank finished fifth in last year’s 50-lap WoO LMA feature.

Frank sits seventh in the WoO LMS points standings entering this weekend’s action. He trails leader Rick Eckert by 182 points but is only 64 markers behind third-place Darrell Lanigan.

Kyle Beard Takes CCSDS Point's Lead into Action this Weekend

Trumann, AR (06/28/11) – After a slow start to last weekend, Kyle Beard piloted his #86 Victory Circle M1 Chassis By Moyer/Samuels Performance Racing Engine Super Late Model to a second place finish on Saturday night to end the weekend with the point's lead with the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS).

After a week break from action, Kyle returned to the race track with the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) as the tour invaded USA Speedway (Sterlington, Louisiana) for a $2,000 to win, 35 lap event.

Twenty-four cars entered the event, and on a track that lended itself to passing Beard would only pass one car in heat race action, which left him starting 14th in the main event. For the feature another narrow track would greet the competitors, and Kyle would only manage a disappointing 15th place finish.

Kyle concluded the back end of the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series weekend doubleheader in Louisiana on Saturday night at Ark-La-Tex Speedway (Vivian, Louisiana). Twenty-eight Super Late Models entered the $2,000 to win event, and Kyle would win his heat race to earn the fifth starting spot for the main event.

In the feature, on a racy track, he would race his way to a second place finish behind race winner, Ray Moore. Via his performance Beard now leads the CCSDS points by 26 markers over Jon Mitchell. Full weekend results and the latest points are available at www.COMPDirt.com

This weekend, July 1st-3rd, the team will go into battle in a trio of events, which will be co-sanctioned by the CCSDS and MARS Super Late Model tours. The festivities get underway with a doubleheader at West Plains Motor Speedway (West Plains, Missouri), which will see a Friday night program highlighted by a $2,500 to win/$350 to start event before concluding with a $3,000 to win/$400 to start event on Saturday night. On Sunday evening the action will shift to Monett Speedway (Monett, Missouri) for another $3,000 to win/$400 to start event. For more information, please visit www.WestPlainsDirt.com www.MonettSpeedway.net www.COMPDirt.com,  and www.MARSRacingSeries.com

Kyle Beard also has new apparel that is available for viewing at www.KyleBeard86.com and can be purchased at the team hauler.
Kyle Beard would like to thank his sponsors including KB Transport, Gary Beard Trucking, Samuel’s Performance Engines, D&M Power Washing, O.H. Hendricks Sheet Metal, JFR Graphics, Real Racin’ Wheels, Team 5 Enterprise, Stealth Carburetors, and MSRMafia.com Marketing Services.

Donnie Moran takes advantage of Jon Henry miscue to claim Millstream All Star Late Model win

FINDLAY, OH (6-26-11) By Brian Liskai Jon Henry has had a nearly perfect season, but it was an uncharacteristic miscue that allowed The Million Dollar Man Donnie Moran to slip by to take the $4,000 OReilly Auto Parts All Star Circuit of Champions Late Model Series win at Millstream Speedway Sunday, June 26.

Henry, who has five wins at Attica Raceway Park in 2011, got over the cushion in turn two, but did a masterful job of keeping his www.jonhenryracing.com  model out of the wall. But, when you have three-time All Star champion and four time STARS titlist Donnie Moran right on your rear bumper, theres no room for error.

Were happy to be here. This is a good win for us, Moran said in victory lane. My car was good just about anywhere I put it, but I found a groove I liked and just kept working it and working it and it finally paid off.

Moran and Henry would bring the field to the green flag, with Henry powering ahead to the early race lead. Moran, Eddie Carrier Jr., Steve Casebolt and Greg Johnson would give chase. Henry would build a sizable early lead with Moran comfortably in second while a tremendous battle ensued for third between Carrier, Johnson and Casebolt.

The 40-lap features only caution would fly for debris on lap 10, wiping out Henrys big lead. When racing resumed, Henry again roared ahead, but Moran, the first four time winner of Eldora Speedways World 100, would stay within striking distance. Soon the Ada, Ohio youngster and the Dresden, Ohio veteran would begin a high speed game of cat-and-mouse,
methodically slicing through the back of the field.

Meanwhile, behind the leaders, Carrier who scored an All Star series win earlier this year and Johnson would continue to duel for the third spot while young Russ King and former Eldora Dream winner Matt Miller looked to crack the top five.

At the halfway point, Moran had slowly reeled in Henry, patiently waiting for the right opportunity. On lap 27 Henry jumped the cushion off turn two and Moran drove under for the lead.

Henry, meanwhile, nearly stalled his car as he scrambled to gather his momentum back up for a run at the new race leader.

Over the final ten laps, Henry was able to close back in on Moran, but simply ran out of time to catch Moran who nabbed the win in his C&J Excavating, Custom Cutter, Eddies Sunoco sponsored #99. Henry would cross the stripe in second with Eddie Carrier Jr., of Salt Rock, W. Va third. Bedford, Indianas Greg Johnson finished fourth with Bristolville, Ohios Russ King rounding out the top five.

BOLLAND TAKES MODIFIED TOUR THRILLER AT MERCER

Kevin Bolland made a daring last lap pass of leader Brian Swartzlander and went on to win the thrilling BRP/Hoosier Tire Modified Tour race presented at Mercer raceway Park by All Metals Recycling of Rochester, PA. The win put Bolland in a tie with two legends of Modified racing at the Mercer oval: the legendary Lou Blaney and four-time Modified Tour Champion Rex King, Sr. They each have three career modifed Tour victories at the Park.


"The traffic is always tough at Mercer, you just have to wait your turn," Bolland said. On several occasions, the traffic thwarted Bolland's ability to pass race leader Brian Swartzlander. However, in the final analysis, a lapped car figured prominently into his winning pass.

When the field was circulating under the final caution, Bolland said to himself, "I have 11 more laps, let's get this project done." At that moment, he was sitting third behind Swartzlander and Frank Guidace. Shortly after the race resumed, Bolland regained second position and he rapidly closed on Swartzlander.

"I had to wait for the lap traffic to play in because Brian had the bottom end tied up for several laps." Bolland explained that he kept trying the high side in turns one and two, "but every time I got a run on him, it seemed like a lapped car fell in front of me and I couldn't capitalize again." He kept working at it, though, and eventually he used the traffic to his advantage.

The front of the field was laden with talent, as Swartzlander, King, Sr. and Bolland occupied three of the top four positions. The other prime starting spot went to the divsion's newest feature winner, Rex King, Jr.

Swartzlander got the initial jump and King, Sr. was challenging immediately. Their battle ended almost as quickly as it began because a caution flag required the field to realign. On the second attempt at start, Swartzlander again took command, but this time Bolland followed him into second position.

Although Swartzlander led from the start, he could not shake loose from Bolland. Bolland kept switching lines as the duo diced for the lead. When they approached heavy lapped traffic near the midpoint of the race, Bolland made his first bid for the lead. He dropped to the inside lane coming off turn two and Swartzlander remained in the middle groove. They swept past a pair of lapped cars in an astounding four-wide formation on the backstretch. Swartzlander entered turn three with the lead, as Bolland had to burp the throttle to set the car for the corner.

Bolland continued to apply the pressure until the race was slowed for its second caution. On the restart, track favorite Frank Guidace powered into second with his potent 358 Modified, and the fans were sensing that an upset could be in the making. He had climbed quickly from ninth to the lead group. No 358 Modified had ever beaten the touring Big Blocks at Mercer and Guidace wanted to be the first. He closed in on Swartzlander on several occasions, but he could never pull alongside the leader.

Meanwhile, Bolland regrouped and began to work on Guidace for second. Bolland went to the outside and took the position away as they raced through turns one and two on lap 21. Bolland once again took up the chase for the lead.

With the laps winding down, the leaders again found themselves in heavy lapped traffic. That gave Bolland the opportunity to challenge for the win. As the leaders came charging off turn four to take the white flag, Bolland squeezed between Swartzlander and a lapped car. At the scoring loop, Bolland had the lead by a narrow margin. The lead pair cleared the lapped car and they raced hard into turn one. There was contact. Swartzlander slid high, but kept moving despite suffering some damage to his car. Bolland managed to keep his car straight and pulled away for the win.
Swartzlander took the checkers in second.

Eric Gabany, driving another Mercer 358, made a strong move on the outside in the final laps and garnered third. Guidace held on for fourth, followed by Dave Murdick.

Jeremiah Shingledecker finished sixth. Rex King, Sr. crossed in seventh, snapping a streak of top five finishes with the BRP/Hoosier Tire Modified Tour that lasted nearly two years. His son, Rex King, Jr., grabbed eighth. Brad Rapp climbed all of the way to ninth after starting in row eleven. Kevin Hoffman completed the top ten.

Heat race wins for the 31 car field went to Swartzlander, Gabany and Bolland. All of them received a prize from new series sponsor, Rod End Supply.

The B Main was captured by Brad Rapp, who started last due to missing his heat race. His crew was busy replacing a U-joint that failed in hot laps.

The Landrum Spring Racer of the Race award was presented to Brad Rapp for overcoming that adversity.

Because Bolland and Swartlander received prizes from R2C Performance Products for their wins at Lernerville Speedway and Pittsburgh's Pennsylvania Motor Speedway, respectively, the award was conferred on Eric Gabany.

Provisional startng positions were used by Trucker Don Brown (Mercer Raceway Park) and Shawn Fleeger (Modified Tour).

Conley Clinches K-C Late Models
Pinkerton Picks-up Modified Win/Adams Absolute in Reno Hobby Stockers

CHILLICOTHE, OHIO-A large crowd, sparked predominantly by "Carload Night" saw Late Model Hall of Famer and defending track champion Delmas Conley, Wheelersburg, Ohio school the youngsters by picking up his fourth K-C Raceway win of the year in the AMRA Late Models at Jeff and Vicki Schrader's K-C Raceway Saturday night. Dave "Fireball" Pinkerton, Chillicothe, claimed the AMRA Modified main over a fine crop of cars and the "Dominator" Jamey Adams captured an exciting Dan Reno Hobby Stock main.
In a thrilling Hobby Stock main event, two former champions, Tommy Mossbarger and Bruce Gray, Jr. paced the field to starter Daryl Owen's green flag. Mossbarger controlled the first three laps with Gray in tow, but quickly a storming Brandon Thompson took over second from Gray and began to work on Mossbarger.
On lap five Thompson, a two-time winner last season, stoked the coals to take the lead for the next seven circuits. By this time, one could have thrown a blanket over the top six cars. Thompson was on the point with Mossbarger, Gray, Adams, Brandon Mather and Jim Hildebrand all well within his clutches.
On the tenth circuit Adams took over second and began to run down Thompson. Adams rifled by Thompson on the high side, then a Thompson slide job retook the lead only to have Adams again charge to the front. At the start of lap 13 Thompson again took the lead, but a spin reverted back to lap twelve, placing Adams back on top.
Numerous adjectives, all of a positive nature, could describe Adams. But most of all 'winner' is the most revealing. Adams held off Thompson on a trio of restarts and raced to what was reported as his seventh straight win of the year. Prior to the races, the track announced that a Bounty was on Adams in the amount of $42, his car number for each week he wins. Whoever can beat Adams will collect the bounty now set at $84 (42 +42) next weekend.
Thompson and Mossbarger continued great seasons with top three finishes. Mike Brust finished strong with a top five, while Mather continued another strong evening ahead of two K-C chargers Jack Martin and Butch Eblin. Keith Dubois and Jim Hildebrand recovered from an early race collision with blasts of the tail and into the top ten. Mather was the hard charger in a 13th to 5th place run.
Behind Adams in the top ten were Thompson, Mossbarger, Brust, Mather, Martin, Butch Eblin, Dubois, Patrick Park, and Jim Hildebrand.
Mike Wilson, Circleville, Ohio started the night with quick time and led nearly all of his heat race, only to have racing legend Delmas Conley pull off the late race win. It was déjà-vu for Wilson in the feature. Wilson looked to be on a rail for the first 16 laps and was well out in front of the field. Wilson's lead was eclipsed on lap 12 as a caution waved, but the Circleville flyer jammed her into high gear for a great restart. Shannon Roese rode in the wake much of the time from his outside pole start, but Chad Smith and Conley picked off the most recent hard-charger Roese for second and third. Smith began reeling in Wilson, gaining turf each and every lap with Conley on his rear quarters.
Racin' Jason Perry, Kevin Wagner, and early contenders Russ Frohnapfel and Dean Boyd dueled for position in the lead pack, and Tony Roush made some headway after losing a driver shaft in his heat. Both Frohnapfel and Roush later were sidelined, ending potentially good runs.
As Smith fought to catch Wilson, Conley tried all his expertise to get by Smith. Smith closed the door on Conley as Conley dove low, and hard-on-the-binders as the two cars touched. Smith was whistled for the no-stop infraction and went to the tail, where he began a kamikaze blitz back to the front.
Conley gunned down Wilson on the 16th marker and never looked back as the tires on the Conley Trucking Rocket appeared to kick in. Many fans were on their feet cheering for a Chad Smith comeback, but time ran out on the gas-man's run. Meanwhile, Kevin Wagner, always a good runner at K-C, got faster as the race went along. The driver of the #33 finished a healthy third, while Smith won a last lap battle with Racin' Jason Perry for fourth.
Pete Brunton, who suffered mechanical woes early this season, shook the bad-luck tag to finish 6th and earn hard-charger honors after starting 14th. Randy Wynett and two welcome guests Nick Latham and Carl Dillow battled hard into the top ten along with Tommy Bigham.
At the finish it was Conley, Wilson, Wagner, Smith, Perry, Brunton, Wynett, Latham, Dillow, and Tommy Bigham.
The drama-filled AMRA Modified main was a nail-biter as well. Nearly every fan in attendance stayed until the final checkered flag, captured for the third time this year by Dave "Fireball" Pinkerton. Heat winners Jeremy Rayburn and Pinkerton paced the field to the initial start. Rayburn was set back a row for a jumping violation, sparking a charge that kept everyone on edge later in the race.
Bob Crace, Jr. and Pinkerton set the pace for the second start with the latter taking the lead and never looking back. But it wasn't easy. Crace challenged early, then diced it up with Jeremy Berwanger and Rayburn a close fourth. An unidentified spinning car, collected several other contenders between turns three and four. Casualties of the pile-up were defending champion Brian Whiteman and former champ Bud Frazier. Top runners Jeremy Berwanger, Kevin Delany, T.J. Harper, and Steven Duty also got caught up in the melee.
With Berwanger out, Crace, Jr. was again poised for a run in second with Rayburn nestled closely behind. Mark Kaetzel, Lonnie Kidd, and Mark Bailey were consistent all evening. Pinkerton built up a lead in lapped traffic, as Rayburn dove by Crace for second. As the laps ticked away, Rayburn consumed Pinkerton's huge lead and poised himself for a chance at the win.
Rayburn reeled in Pinkerton and was within two car lengths with three laps to go, then narrowed the gap even further.
A last lap caution set up a green-checkered finish just as Rayburn was ready to make his move. On the restart Crace--in third-- tangled with a lapped car and spiraled over the turn two embankment just as Rayburn set up Pinkerton for a possible challenge.
Rayburn's car expired before the next restart leaving Mark Kaetzel as the most likely contender to unseat Pinkerton. The drama never unfolded as the #8 Horizon/McDonald's car headed to victory lane. C.J. Ferguson, Brian Moore, Bill Thorla, Bob Hurst, Jr., and Patrick Hayes all endured with good runs into the top ten. Ferguson challenged Bailey for another rung up the ladder, but Lonnie Kidd--the race hard-charger sacked both for third in a 14th to 3rd run.
Rounding out the top ten were Pinkerton, Kaetzel, Kidd, Bailey, Ferguson, Moore, Thorla, Hurst, Jr., Hayes, and Rayburn.
K-C will not run next Saturday, but will host a Special Friday Night Spectacular dubbed "The Night the Stars Come Out". The feature event hosts both the O'Reilly All-Star Circuit of Champions Outlaw Sprint cars and powerful Late Models. Due to the Lucas Oil event being cancelled at another track, several Late Model stars from the series have indicated they will attend the K-C event along with a host of other big name drivers in both divisions. Hobby Stocks will be the support division.
Tuesday, July 5th K-C will host an open practice session from 6-10 p.m. General Admission is free to the public with a $25 per car fee for insurance. Concessions and fuel will be available. All classes are invited and several big-name drivers have indicated they will be in attendance to test for the DTWC. The 360 NRA Invaders Sprints come to K-C July 9th and the Boss Non-winged Sprints and Late Models highlight the July 16 racing card. For more information, please visit www.kc-raceway.com or call 740-663-4141. K-C Raceway is located south of Chillicothe on Blain Highway off SR 23 at Alma.

Endurance Leads David Schneider to First Career Mountain Victory


By: Gene Ostrowski

June 18, 2011



St. Johns, PA- It would be an understatement to say that the Sport Modified feature Saturday night at Mountain Speedway was interesting. In fact, the race itself became a battle of the fittest, and when it was all said and done, while piloting a Sport Modified that is usually driven by his brother William, David Schneider of Northport, NY brought home his first career win in the division. After coming away with his first Late Model victory two weeks earlier, Craig Lutz of Miller Place, NY scored his second straight verdict in the division and Chris Parry of Lehighton notched his first Factory Stock victory at the speedway.

Dean Ficarro led the Sport Modified field to the drop of the green flag in the 40-lap main before things heated up in a hurry. While fighting a loose condition, Ficarro got out of shape in turn two, which opened the door for several drivers to take the lead. Chip Wanamaker saw an opening, as did Todd Baer. The pair split Ficarro and when he finally spun out on the backstretch it collected not only the two drivers making a bid for the lead, but also Jim Bojohnny and Nick Pecko.

The red flag was thrown for the incident after both Wanamaker and Baer sustained heavy damage. It took a little time for Baer to climb from his car and aside from being shaken up and limping, he didn’t appear to be seriously injured.

Green flag racing resumed with Barry Callavini on the point over Paul Frantz, David Schneider, Dan Speeney and Mike Skarbowski. However, several cautions in the early going slowed the racing action, with the fifth one coming out for a Mike Kline spin on lap four.

Two laps following the restart, Schneider made a quick move on Callavini and grabbed the race lead. Schneider maintained the lead over Callavini with a third of the race complete and Frantz, Todd Geist and Dave Brigati were in tow.

A lap 15 tangle occurred when Callavini tried to get underneath Schneider for the lead in turn one. Several drivers behind the two were forced to check up, which caused Frantz and Pecko to collect near turn one.

Green flag racing resumed and Schneider had a mirror full of Brigati, who via helicopter, made an attempt to pull double duty between both Mountain Speedway and Riverhead Raceway on Long Island on the same day.

Brigati faded over the closing laps, which allowed eighth place starter Skarbowski to overtake him for second on lap 24. Despite efforts by Skarbowski to make the pass for the lead, Schneider held on to take not only his first career Sport Modified victory in his first start of the season, as he did it in style while driving his brother’s car. William Schneider, who usually pilots the ride, was away at a football camp.

Skarbowski ended up with a second place effort, followed by Brigati, Pecko and Geist.

Heat race victories went to Dave Brigati and Chip Wanamaker.

Rick Smith led the Late Model field to the drop of the green flag in the 30-lap main and continued out front over Francis Gross III, Craig Lutz, Paul Monkoski and Kyle Harvell with one lap in the books.

Lutz got by Gross for the second spot and then Harvell followed to take third before the yellow flag flew when the engine on Mike Sweeney’s car expired on the front stretch.

Lutz powered by Smith and into the lead on the lap four restart and then Harvell overtook Smith for the runner up spot on the following circuit. Meanwhile, in his first career Late Model start, Brian Sones wheeled his way into the top five. With 10 laps complete Lutz led over Harvell, Smith, Sones and Gross.

With Lutz and Harvell still out front, Sones worked on Smith for third. He grabbed the spot on lap 13 and tried to chase down the leaders.

Despite several attempts by Harvell to make the race winning pass stick, Lutz drove away to take the checkered flag for back-to-back victories over Harvell, Sones, Smith and Gross.

Heat race wins went to Craig Lutz and Kyle Harvell.

After starting on the pole position, Keith Frankenfield lost the lead to Chris Parry before a lap was complete in the 20-lap Factory Stock feature. Frankenfield maintained the second spot, followed by Jeff Searfoss, Brandon Oltra and Joey Barbush.

Matt Schlenker cracked the top five and then overtook Searfoss for third on lap two. He then tried to reel in Frankenfield. Meanwhile, Parry began to open up a sizable gap over the rest of the field.

With Parry still in his own zip code, Schlenker overtook Frankenfield for second on lap 10. Searfoss had moved back to third shortly after, followed by Frankenfield and Oltra.

With no yellow flags throughout the event, Parry drove to his first Factory Stock victory at the speedway over Schlenker, Searfoss and Frankenfield. In his first start of the season, Paul Morgan, Sr. finished in the fifth spot.

Heat race victories went to Chris parry and Matt Schlenker.

Late Model driver Jennifer Kutz brought out Girl Scout Troop #833 to witness the action at the speedway for the first Autograph & Camera Night of the season. The girls seemed to enjoy the sights and sounds of auto racing, as they recently spent time at Jennifer’s garage while working on the racecar to earn their Car Care Badge.

It was the last event of the season for the Pit Stewart, Mike Odwazny. Odwazny first competed at the speedway in 2000, where he won the first annual Factory Stock “King of the Mountain”. During his tenure as a driver at the track, Odwazny scored six Factory Stock and two Street Stock victories before performing his week-to-week duties at the track, which began during the 2006 season. Odwazny is destined to do a great job at Bronson Speedway in Florida.

Mountain Speedway is just minutes from Hazleton, Pa, located on St. John’s Road, between Routes 93 and 309. Grandstand admission for all regular events is just $10 for ages 11 and older. Children 10 years of age and younger are admitted for free.

Skyline Speedway Results FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
By Scott Wolfe

STEWART, OHIO-AMRA RWT Champion Matt Holcomb was good, he was lucky, and he ultimately made a clean sweep of the third annual Greg Schilling Memorial before a packed house at Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway Friday night. Evans, WV driver Chris Garnes won his third straight AMRA Late Model main. After suffering a bad flip last weekend, Chillicothe's Josh Davis stoked the coals to the 22D for his first Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association win of the season, and Tracy Fritter claimed the Modified Lites main event. Overall, 118 cars graced the pit area with 51 of the best open wheel modifieds in the Midwest hoping to stake claim at one of the division's biggest paydays.

Holcomb was somewhat of a magician, pulling the old hat trick to cap off the win. Holcomb set C&S Racing fast time, claimed the Wetzel's/B&J Welding Dash, then came home with the $1,699 Schilling Memorial win. Holcomb was fast out of the gate with a sizzling 15:63 time trial, then flexed some muscle with a dicing dash win over Aukland.

The performance on the track was just as exciting as the off-the-track drama in the running of the third annual Greg Schilling Memorial. For 25-laps Matt Holcomb, the defending AMRA (American Motor Racing Association) Road Warrior Champion, led the race only to have Late Model Hall of Famer Aukland get by in lapped traffic.

"I thought that was the race," said Holcomb. "I couldn't hit my spots because of the lapped cars and Rick could see what I couldn't, and took advantage of it."

For the racing fan, Friday's special was a Broadway hit. Holcomb got the early lead out of the gate, but Aukland was within inches every stretch of the first 25 markers. Aukland occasionally tried the high side, then moved down low and began to politely nudge under the leader Holcomb. Finally, lapped cars came into play. The first few Holcomb quickly disposed of, but as he progressed up the ladder, a competitive traffic jam emerged, making it rough for the youngster.

Holcomb got trapped behind a backmarker and Aukland took to the highside. The veteran Aukland led the 26th circuit and appeared to be on his way to victory lane, taking the checkered flag first. Aukland made a bonsai move that kept two cars between him and Holcomb at the finish. However, an after-race inspection found the use of an unapproved part on the 2a of Aukland and resulted in disqualification. The result was that heartbreak turned to celebration for Holcomb.

Said Holcomb in victory lane, "I thought the difference in this one was going to be the lapped traffic, and it wasn't to my advantage. But I guess patience paid off. To lose this one after leading was a downer, but to end up with the win is great. Hoosier Tires on this Coyote Chassis and a week's worth of work from Jordan Riggs certainly made the difference. Jordan made this car go the way it did tonight. It's great to win this for the Schilling family."

Closing in on the leaders late in the race was a blitzing Kevin Morehouse with Jeremy Berwanger in tow. Andy Bond and northern KY invader Dave McWilliams hammered it hard for the duration of the race, while Chris Stotts moved from 14th to 7th, falling just short of Hard Charger honors. Roy Roush claimed the hard-charger award with an 18th to tenth place run.
Rounding out the top ten were Matt Holcomb, Kevin Morehouse, Jeremy Berwanger, Andy Bond, David McWilliams, Todd Robinson, Chris Stotts, Robbie Evans, Bart Hartman, and Roy Roush.

Said second place Kevin Morehouse, "The difference between a strong second and winning was that I needed a caution. The tires kicked in about halfway, but Rick and Matt had built up a good lead. I was hoping for a caution, but second is good with this group of racers."

"I was just happy to make the race," smiled former AMRA champ Jeremy Berwanger who brought home third. "Racing with this group is an honor, and it was very special to bring home third tonight. The car was great."

The nearly caution-free Late Model main saw Chris Garnes lead flag to flag in another check-out run. Garnes' Swartz Extreme blasted the field with another hard-charging effort. Most of the race saw second place Ralph Withem give chase to Garnes with a strong run early. Withem then had to defend second against K-C Burdette in a race-long battle. After Withem shed Burdette he found himself wheel-to-wheel with Tyler Carpenter. Ultimately Withem held on for runner-up, halting fast timer Carpenter's charge to the front. Rounding out the top ten were Ralph Withem, Tyler Carpenter, Larry Bond, K-C Burdette, Dan Morrison, Jeff Burdette, Andy Bond, Rick Williams, Freddie Carpenter, and Colten Burdette. Rick Williams was the hard-charger in a 16th to 8th place run.

In the 410 OVSCA Sprint Car main, Fast-timer Josh Davis blasted into the initial lead with Andre Layfield, subbing for Jimmy Stinson, in the Billy Jarrell #22. On lap 9 Layfield put on a slide job and made it stick, then a lap and a half later Davis moved down into the rubber and blasted by Layfield.
"Andre showed me where the fast line was. After last week's flip, my back and tail bone were sore and I could hardly hold myself up in the seat, but with a win insight you find a way to make it work," said Davis.

After Layfield shuffled back to second Jimmy Nier and Wayne McPeek waltzed past, then Aaron Higgins followed in tow. Five cars were within six car lengths of the lead in an anything-goes outcome. Higgins bagged McPeek, the West Virginia Warrior, and then Higgins challenged for the lead. With four laps to go Nier collected a lapped car and suffered a flat.
Higgins tried Davis several times, then Layfield came back to life in a last ditch effort to shoot for the lead. When all was said and done Davis held on for the win. "We took the car to Tony Beaber's Monday to get the frame straight. Heck I don't think it ever went this good. He got it right on. This week was an outhouse to the penthouse week and we sure needed it."
Rounding out the top ten were Josh Davis, Aaron Higgins, Andre Layfield, Wayne McPeek, Brian Benson, Dave Dickson, Kory Crabtree, Chris Myers, Beau Stewart, and Greg Mitchell. Kory Crabtree, who flipped in his heat, got his thoughts and his mount back in order for hard-charger honors, zooming from 15th to 7th.
In the Modified Lites, one of the best in the divisions, Tracey Fritter brought home the win over Cody Bova, and Tyler Riggs. In the Mike's Auto Body Mini-Wedges Cole Mayle went 4-for-4 over Jason Gillian, Coleman Evans, Martin Gibson, Jr., Tyler Evans, Hunter Teters, Coleton Perine, Hunter Newlon, Tanner Hendrix, and Skyler Zimmerman.
Next week is the first leg of the OVSCA 410 Sprint car Speed Weekend featuring the outlaw 410 sprint cars July 1 at Skyline, July 2 at Ohio Valley (Lubeck, WV) and I-77 Raceway Park on Sunday, July 3. Regular classes will also join the sprint car show. Tickets are on sale now! Three Day passes, good for all three days can be purchased at the bargain price of just $30.

COVERT FIRST TSF REPEAT WINNER WITH NININGER MEMORIAL TRIUMPH


Hagerstown, Md. – Jason Covert became the first repeat winner at Hagerstown Speedway on Friday after posting the triumph of the 4th Annual Red Nininger Memorial, the third race of the Hagerstown/Winchester Shootout. Covert of York Haven, Pa. also became the first repeat winner in the Three State Flyers Dirt Late Model Series, having won Hagerstown’s Bonebrake Tribute a month ago. He increased his lead in the TSF "Nininger’s Tire and Auto Center Challenge in Memory of Red Nininger" over J. T. Spence who finished 2.06 seconds behind Covert.

Steve Lowery of Chambersburg, Pa. beat Eddie McClellan and Wayne Hawbaker to the finish in the Ernie D’s pure stocks by less than a length after a three wide exit from the fourth turn.

Alan Sagi occupied the pole after winning the eight lap dash with D. J. Myers alongside. Sagi, driving with a broken right wrist following an incident the previous week, pulled into the lead while third starting Covert quickly took control of the runner up position.

Sagi continued to hold a second plus advantage over Covert as fifth starting Spence passed Myers on the fourth lap and Jim Bernheisel repeatedly challenged Myers until the caution waved on lap 14 when Jamie Lathroum slowed.

Covert went to the outside on the restart as Sagi led the next lap, but in turn three, Covert made contact with Sagi’s right front as Sagi fought to gather it back in while Spence motored by into the runner up spot.

Covert sped away and was 2.75 seconds ahead and into rear traffic while Sagi was a near equal distance back in third. Covert continued through traffic until arriving at the checkered 2.06 seconds over with three lapped cars back to Sagi.

“I’ll just tell you, I wanted it more than those guys tonight,” Covert said. “Barry and the guys worked their guts out to get this car ready. At 9 last night, it didn’t have a body and no motor. All the credit goes to them.”

“Racing Alan is always a pleasure but I got to the outside of him and I needed to get in front of him to get the air off his nose. There was one lane below me but we did get together. It was definitely my fault but we do have roll cages, seat belts and helmets in these things. We’re not trying to crash, but are out there racing on the edge every night. A bad night here is better than a good day at work so I like being here. ”

Jeremy Miller passed Bernheisel for fourth on the final circuit. Kyle Lear, who came from 18th, received the Round Hill Hard Charger award after finishing sixth with Myers ending seventh. Bo Feathers was eighth with Marvin Winters and Nick Dickson completing the top ten.

Heat winners for the 42 entries were Covert, Myers, Spence and Sagi with Steve Axtell Jr. and Jerry Bard taking the two B mains and Sagi winning the dash. Glenn Nininger randomly pulled the number two from the hat and awarded Spence with an additional $100.

Wayne Hawbaker led the pure stocks over Frank Dibella while Kenny Dillon took over second. By the halfway mark, it was a four car battle as Eddie McClellan, Dillon and Lowery were mixing it up with Dillon leading two laps before Hawbaker retook the point. Lowery was challenging and led lap 13 while it still was anyone’s race. At the white flag, it was three wide with McClellan appearing to have the upper hand heading around the final turns but suddenly Lowery sped past him and Hawbaker to take the win in the final stretch. McClellan was alongside a half car length back with Hawbaker, Dillon and Drew Fitzsimmons next. Heat winners were Dillon and Hawbaker.

“The guys are really driving good…a lot of good close racing,” Lowery said. “We had a couple of lucky breaks especially on that last lap. I enjoy racing with these guys…they’re hard racers and we’re having fun.”

This Wednesday, June 29, the 410 sprints arrive south of the border for the 21st Annual Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek plus the EMMR (Eastern Museum of Motor Racing vintage racing exhibition). Warm-ups begin at 7:30 p.m.

That program will be followed with the Independence Day weekend event next Saturday, the 46th Annual Johnny Roberts Memorial, a 50-lap Late Model feature event plus the Late Model Sportsman, Pure Stocks & Fireworks display. Warm-ups are at 7:00 p.m. Sunday July 3rd is a rain date.

ACCORD SPEEDWAY NEWS

Accord, NY - Accord Speedway Falls Again To The Whims Of Mother Nature
By: Steve Pados, Accord Speedway Media

The Accord Speedway had high hopes to get back on track on this evening, June 24th, but the forces of nature have proved to be an ongoing obstacle for the entire Northeast and speedway promoters Gary and Donna Palmer have reluctantly thrown in the sponge and have cancelled the racing activities scheduled for this evening. With two consecutive Fridays and one Wednesday program now falling to the forces of nature, the speedway will hope to dodge the crazy and unpredictable weather patterns of late and welcome in Independence Day with two shows this coming week as Midweek Madnesss swings back into action on Wednesday night, June 29th, with a multi-division entertaining show for the smaller divisions of racing.

July 1st will bring out the great "Wild Bill" as the extraordinary showman of illumination will join in with the Accord Speedway celebration of Independence Day for the eleventh consecutive year and will light up the Ulster County skies with another of his one of a kind fireworks extravaganzas. The fabulous light up the sky event will be co-sponsored by Cordova Plumbing and Heating and Barrett's Plumbing and Heating as the two major sponsors of the "Buckshot" Mike Barrett's race car join forces for the evening. The now famous Chicken BBQ and all of the fixin's will compliment the special evening at the speedway. Come out early and join in with the dynamite celebration of great food, great racing and the one and only "Wild Bill" and his special brand of fireworks. The Palmer Family has been in control of the Accord facility since late 2000 and the 2011 racing season marks the eleventh season of successful promotions since they took over the ownership of the speedway.

All feature events for the Modifieds will offer $2,000.00 to the winner. The Friday night racing will culminate with the running of the King of the Catskills weekend set for September 23rd and 24th. The yet to be determined format of the ROC Modified portion of the event will once again see $7,000.00 awaiting the winner of the WLR Construction sponsored feature event in the Lucas Oil Products winners circle. A series of qualifiers are in place in conjunction with other area speedways in an effort to have all of the speedways working together in a cohesive manner. The American Racer East Coast Modified Cup program is in place at Accord and will provide additional opportunities for the drivers and teams in 2011. The Accord Speedway management is very appreciative of all of the assistance they have received from track sponsors Lucas Oil Products, VP Fuels and American Racer, all divisions sponsors Rhinebeck Ford, Camper's Barn, DC Landscaping, Healey Brothers Group, Arkel Motors and Ruge's Part Centers as well as all of the many speedway billboard sponsors and the great fan base for their continuous support of the great racing found at the Accord Speedway.

Midweek Madness will get back on track on June 29th and will run until August 31st the speedway will once again have a diverse group of racing divisions entertaining the fans with the quick-hitting show. Quads, Go-Karts, three divisions of Slingshots, 270 winged Micros, 600 Micros, Legends, Bandoleros, 4-Cylinder Juniors and 4-Cylinder Seniors will all be going to war on the Accord high banks and the addition of all of the exciting new divisions will produce some excellent side by side racing on the ultra-wide channeled speedway. The very affordable admission fee of $5.00 is in place for the Wednesday night shows.

Friday night racing at Accord runs from April through September with six great divisions going to war on the Accord high banks. This week Codova Plumbing and Heating and Barrett's Plumbing and Heating will serve as the headline sponsor for the evening's event and will feature the five regular divisions at the speedway. For all special attractrions at the speedway an increase in admission prices will be in effect. Admission for the great racing action remains the same from a season ago as Adults (12+) will be $12.00; Children (11 and under) will be $3.00. The Family Value Pack that was met with much success last season is once again offered and is: 2 Adults, 2 Children, and $20.00 in food vouchers for $40.00, a savings of $10.00 to the consumer. Pit Gates open at the speedway at 4:30 and Spectator Gates open at 5. Hot laps kick off at 6:30 and the racing is slated to start at 7 PM.

Promoter John Soares’s three-eighths-mile oval located about an hour outside of San Francisco is set to present one of the biggest programs of DIRTcar’s 2011 season on the Pacific Coast – a doubleheader featuring a 30-lap DIRTcar Western All-Stars Late Model Series presented by VP Racing Fuels A-Main and a special DIRTcar West UMP Modified event. Both races boast first-place prizes of $2,000, with the Late Model event offering $400 to start and the UMP Modifieds $150 to take the green flag.

The DIRTcar twinbill, which shares the weekend with the annual NASCAR Sprint Cup Series stop at the nearby Infineon Raceway in Sears Point, will provide fans a chance to see the top-three drivers in the Western All-Stars Late Model standings pull double-duty. Points leader Bobby Hogge IV of Salinas, Calif., second-place Chris Shannon of Merced, Calif., and third-place Richard Papenhausen of Chico, Calif., plan to compete in both divisions in search of a lucrative $4,000 sweep.

Hogge, 34, has already won DIRTcar-sanctioned features in each class this season, capturing a Western All-Stars Late Model show on April 23 at Giant Chevrolet Kings Speedway in Hanford, Calif., and three DIRTcar West UMP Modified mains. He’ll bid for his first triumph of ’11 at Antioch, a track that has treated him well in the past. He successfully ran his UMP Modified there almost weekly in the late ‘90s and early 2000s and won Western All-Stars events at Antioch in 2008 and 2009.

The alltime winningest driver on the Western All-Stars circuit with 18 career wins, Hogge holds a slight 14-point edge (455-441) over Shannon in the tour’s points standings through three events. Papenhausen sits third behind the former Western All-Stars champions (Shannon in ’08, Hogge in ’09) with 425 points, followed by Clarke Guglielmoni (395) and Paul Guglielmoni (376), both of Vacaville, Calif.

Hogge also is in the thick of the DIRTcar UMP Northwestern States points races for both classes, sitting third in the Late Model standings and fourth in the Modified rankings. Each division’s States points battle – which for both encompasses all DIRTcar-sanctioned events in California, Oregon, Washington and Nevada – pays a $2,000 champion’s prize from a total points fund of $5,860 available to the top 15 finishers.

Shannon is currently second (Modifieds) and sixth (Late Models) in the DIRTcar UMP Northwestern States points standings, while Papenhausen ranks seventh in the Late Model and 23rd in the Modified standings. Shannon owns three Modified wins in 11 starts and Papenhausen owns one victory in four Modified starts.

Antioch DIRTcar West UMP Modified champion Troy Foulger, 20, of Martinez, Calif., leads the open-wheel division’s Northwestern States points standings. He’s still searching for his first win of 2011, but he has four runner-up finishes and hasn’t placed worse than eighth in 14 starts.

Saturday will mark the second Western All-Stars Late Model Series event of the season at Antioch. Jeff Decker of Morganhill, Calif., won the tour’s season opener there on April 16.

Antioch Speedway is located on the Contra Costa County Fairgrounds at 1201 W. 10th St. in Antioch, Calif. The track’s gates are scheduled to open at 5 p.m. and qualifying will begin at 6 p.m.

More information on Antioch Speedway can be obtained by logging on to www.antiochspeedway.com  or calling 925-779-9220.

STAY ANOTHER DAY: Antioch’s sister track, Merced (Calif.) Raceway, will also host a $2,000-to-win DIRTcar West UMP Modified feature on Sunday evening (June 26), providing open-wheel teams even more incentive to compete back-to-back nights. Race time is 5 p.m.

More information on Merced Raceway can be obtained by logging on to www.racemerced.com

COMING UP: The Independence Day weekend is shaping up as a big one for the DIRTcar Northwest I-5 Late Model Series, which will swing back into action after a one-year hiatus – and an early-season rainout – with three events at two tracks.

Willamette Speedway in Lebanon, Ore., kicks off the Northwest I-5 tour’s holiday extravaganza with a two-day show on Sat., July 2, and Sun., July 3. Full programs will be contested each evening.

The series will then head to Cottage Grove (Ore.) Speedway for a $2,000-to-win/$150-to-start special on Mon., July 4.

Oregon's Trevor Glaser and Rob Mayea currently hold the top two spots in the DIRTcar UMP Northwestern States Late Model points standings.

LAND OF ENCHANTMENT: Aztec (N.Mex.) Speedway will host its Independence Celebration Weekend on July 2-3 featuring a two-day DIRTcar Southwestern Regional Challenge event for the Championship Late Model Association DIRTcar Series and the New Mexico Late Models.

The Sat., July 2, event will pay $1,000 to win and $200 to start, while the grand finale on Sun., July 3, will offer a $2,500 top prize and $300 to start.

POTENTIAL $6500 PAYDAY AS TWO BIG BLOCK MODIFIED FEATURES INCLUDING POSTPONED WINGATE MAIN EVENT HEADLINE THE JAM IN JERSEY SHOW AT
BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY

BRIDGEPORT, NJ (June 24, 2011) – After the feature events for the annual George Wingate Classic were rained out on June 16, a new show has been added to the 2011 Bridgeport Speedway schedule that is sure to delight many fans and drivers. On Tuesday, July 19, the $3000 to win George Wingate Classic Big Block Modified feature will be contested at the Jam in Jersey. Plus, another 25-lap Big Block Modified main event paying $2500 to win will take place following qualifying events. If a driver should win both Big Block Modified features, an extra bonus of $1000 will be paid out and would put a total of $6500 into the pocket of the double main event winner.

As an additional incentive to Big Block Modified drivers, the top four non-qualified finishers in the regular event will be added to the starting field for the Wingate Classic Big Block Modified feature. The lineup for the 25-lap Wingate Classic will see Matt Harrell and Larry Solomon pacing the twenty-six car field. Before the rain washed out the completion of the show, Craig Von Dohren, Duane Howard and Jimmy Horton were winners of the Big Block Modified heats. To be eligible for the $1000 bonus, Big Block Modified drivers simply need to contact the promotions department at mike@bpspeedway.com  or 302-875-4196 to pre-enter the race for free.

Also, a complete show for the Bridgeport Modifieds will be on the agenda. The victor of the 25-lap Bridgeport Modified feature event will take home $1,200 if the number of entries in the Bridgeport Modified class exceeds thirty. If the car count in the Bridgeport Modified class is thirty or under, the winner will receive $1,000. The $2500 to win Bridgeport Modified feature postponed on June 16 will be held on Thursday, August 18 as part of the mid-week special show to include the Super Late Models.

For this special event, any track stamped American Racer tires that conform to the current Bridgeport Speedway permitted compounds are eligible to be used. Unaltered GM 602 engines, 604 engines with a Bridgeport Speedway supplied restrictor plate and 347JR Ford motors with a Bridgeport Speedway supplied restrictor plate will be allowed to compete in the Bridgeport Modified race. A racer can compete in both divisions by registering a second car for $150. Additional rules for this race will be available at the track’s official website located at  www.bpspeedway.com.

On Tuesday, July 19, the gates to the pit area will swing open at 4:30 PM with the grandstand gates opening at 5:30 PM. Action on the big 5/8th mile dirt oval will begin at 7:30 PM.

Richards Kicks Off Firecracker 100 Weekend At Lernerville Speedway With Opening-Night Victory For Second Straight Year



SARVER, PA – June 23, 2011 – Josh Richards began the fifth annual Firecracker 100 presented by GottaRace.com weekend at Lernerville Speedway exactly the same way he did a year ago – with a convincing victory in Thursday night’s first 30-lap World of Outlaws Late Model Series preliminary A-Main.

Back in his father Mark’s familiar Rocket Chassis house car No. 1 after scoring his first WoO LMS win of 2011 behind the wheel of the Ernie Davis-owned No. 25 on June 18 at Winchester (Va.) Speedway, the 23-year-old star from Shinnston, W.Va., passed Steve Shaver of Vienna, W.Va., for the lead on lap five and never looked back. He pocketed a $6,000 top prize and assured himself a pole starting spot in a heat race for Saturday night’s $30,000-to-win Firecracker 100.

“We’ve been real fast all year,” said Richards, who has three career WoO LMS triumphs at the four-tenths-mile Lernerville oval. “We finally had things go our way the last couple weeks and hopefully we can keep it up and win more races.

“It would mean more than anything to me to win (the Firecracker) on Saturday,” he added. “We finally got our first 100-lapper (win) last year (at New York’s Mohawk International Raceway), but we’ve never won a crown-jewel event – and I consider this a crown-jewel event. This track is way better than a lot of tracks we get to go to for big races. This is an awesome place.”

Richards, who won from the pole position starting spot for the second consecutive WoO LMS event, beat second-starter Rick Eckert of York, Pa., to the finish line by 0.723 of a second. It was Richards’s 30th career win on the WoO LMS since 2004 – more than any other driver on the tour over that span – and pulled him within eight points of Eckert in the battle for the series points lead through 12 A-Mains.

Shaver, who started third but surged into the lead on the race’s opening circuit, settled for a third-place finish in the K&L Rumley Rocket car. Scott Bloomquist of Mooresburg, Tenn., advanced from the seventh starting spot to place fourth in his self-built Team Zero machine, grabbing the position on a lap-26 restart from Jimmy Mars of Menomonie, Wis., who completed the top five in his MB Customs mount.

Richards actually got off to a slow start, slipping in turn two moments after the initial green flag and bumping together with Eckert on the backstretch as Shaver snatched the lead. But he quickly gathered himself and charged by Shaver with a powerful outside move off turn four heading to the line on lap five.

“I was a little bit harder on the right-front tire and I pushed across the track the first lap,” said Richards. “(Then) I went straight to the (outside) lip and tried to hammer on it. I got some momentum built up and I just slid by (Shaver).”

Richards made what was ultimately the race’s deciding move before Shaver could even realize what hit him.

“I talked to (Shaver) a minute ago and he said, ‘You must have mufflers on that car,’” Richards quipped during a post-race press conference.

“When I got the lead on the bottom that kind of screwed my whole plan up,” said the 46-year-old Shaver, who won the WoO LMS Commonwealth 100 on April 17 at Virginia Motor Speedway. “I thought, Well, I feel so good here, I’ll ride it out for a couple laps. Then all of a sudden I heard Josh ambush me on the outside there. He did a good job keeping it quiet until he was right up beside me.

“I’m not too sure we could’ve stayed up ahead of him anyway. My car started to fade there at the end.”

Eckert, 45, took up the chase of Richards after finally securing second place from Shaver on lap 22 but wasn’t able to offer a serious challenge. He was certainly satisfied with a $3,000 runner-up finish after surviving a hairy opening-lap racing incident with Richards that bent the steering on his brand-new Team Zero by Bloomquist car.

“Down the backstraightaway on the first lap Josh got loose off two and went down, and then Shaver got under him,” said Eckert. “I went to go around them both (on the outside), and then at the last minute Josh darted out there and we hit pretty hard. My steering wheel was like 45-degrees to the left after that, so it took me about 10 laps to figure out how to drive it like that.

“During that long green I actually got better and better, but I was a long way from passing (Richards). I dove at him hoping he’d make a mistake on exit, but I knew when the caution came out with four to go that he was really gonna have to make a mistake to lose.”

Brady Smith of Solon Springs, Wis., finished sixth, picking up two positions after the race’s final restart on lap 26. Vic Coffey of Caledonia, N.Y., advanced from the 11th starting spot to place seventh, followed by 15th-starter Clint Smith of Senoia, Ga., seventh-starter Tim McCreadie of Watertown, N.Y., and 21st-starter Jonathan Davenport of Blairsville, Ga., who was relegated to the B-Main after spinning out of a transfer spot early in his heat race.

Three caution flags slowed the A-Main. WoO LMS rookie Pat Doar of New Richmond, Wis., slowed on lap one after scraping the homestretch wall; teenager Tyler Reddick of Corning, Calif., fell off the pace on lap six; and 2010 WoO LMS Rookie of the Year Austin Hubbard of Seaford, Del., who nearly rolled his car early in the event when he rode the homestretch wall, slid off the track in turn one on lap 26.

Darrell Lanigan of Union, Ky., who entered the event with four wins and eight top-three finishes in his 10 WoO LMS starts this season, was not a factor. He started 12th but pitted during the lap-six caution period to bolt on softer tires and only managed to climb back to 16 th at the finish.

Eckert made history on two counts in Ohlins Shocks Time Trials. His blistering lap of 15.000 seconds set a new track record and was his 25th career fast-time honor on the WoO LMS – more than any other driver on the tour since 2004. He had been tied atop the career fast-timer list with Richards.

Heat winners were Eckert, Richards, Mars, Shaver, Dale McDowell of Chickamauga, Ga., and Tim Fuller of Watertown, N.Y. The B-Mains were captured by Chub Frank of Bear Lake, Pa., Dan Stone of Thompson, Pa., and Davenport.

The Firecracker 100 presented by GottaRace.com continues on Fri., June 24, with another WoO LMS program topped by a 30-lap A-Main paying $6,000 to win. Drivers will use their best finish from the Thursday and Friday competition to align themselves in Saturday night’s Firecracker 100 heat races.

NEWS FROM JERRY HIGBIE RACING

GOSHEN, NY-- Jerry Higbie Goes Pink For Friday Evening Accord Speedway Event
By: Steve Pados, GA Motorsports Media

Modified superstar Jerry Higbie and the Higbie Racing Team suffered from a rain out last Friday evening at the Accord Speedway to enjoy a night off from the rigors of racing but got back into action the following evening as he drove his signature numbered Big Block powered Modified to a second place finish at the Orange County Fair Speedway and narrowly missing the win that was captured by Michael Storms. With the Accord Speedway points remaining unchanged due to the cancellation and the great finish at OCFS have Jerry remaining solidly in the hunt for the two speedway point chases at both Accord and OCFS and the points battles are shaping up to be nail-biters with the many top quality drivers competing at the New York facilities. Jerry is seeking his third consecutive title at the tough Accord Speedway facility and fourth overall and will be gunning for his third consecutive OCFS Big Block title in 2011.

The updated points at Accord continue to show Brett Hearn as the point leader with 412 points. Jerry Higbie is the runner-up with 384 tallies. Danny Creeden continued his great work and is third in the standings with 371 points. Mike Ricci is fourth with 331 markers and Danny Tyler completes the top five with 322 points. Jeff Heotzler heads up the second five with 319 points and Richie Eurich is close with 299 tallies. Andy Bachetti with 283 tallies, Richard Smith with 262, and Michael Storms with 259 complete the current top ten in points.

Michael Storms captured the win at the OCFS facility on Saturday evening and had Jerry Higbie nipping at his heels for much of the event. The win for Storms was his second of the season. Jerry Higbie, Billy Van Inwegen, Bob McGannon and Tommy Meier completed the top five. Craig Mitchell, Jesse Kline, Tim Hindley, Donnie Wilson and Jack Brown completed the top ten. The updated points picture for the 2011 OCFS driving title now show Tommy Meier out front with 326 tallies. Jerry Higbie is in the runner-up position just one point behind with 325 markers and Richie Eurich has silently climbed into third with 274 points with Steve Dodd and Craig Mitchell completing the top five locked into a tie with 271 points each. Jack Brown with 269 points, Michael Storms with 266, Chris Whitehead with 259, Bob McGannon with 257 and Chris Shultz with 256 markers complete the top point earners at this point in the season.

Jerry competed at the Big Show on Tuesday evening at the OCFS and suffered through fuel problem issues throughout the evening. Jerry qualified through his heat event and started deep in the field for the Modified main attraction but only ran about ten laps before the same nagging fuel problems forced him from the event. Herry was credited with a 27th place finish.

Jerry will swing back into action on Friday evening at Accord with a freshly christened Pink bodied signatured numbered Higbie Racing 97 car for the Kevin Berryman evening of event scheduled at the speedway. All proceeds from the many donated race car body parts will be up for purchase at the speedway and going to the American Cancer Society. Jerry was instrumental into having many of the car owners and drivers donate various items from their stockpiles to be funneled towards the cure for cancer.

With a whirlwind of activity at the Higbie Race Shops, Jerry continues on with a decisive plan with his approach to the 2011 racing season. As previously noted, Jerry is racing at OCFS in a recently spawned chassis of Higbie design for competition at the hard clay oval. For competition at the Accord Speedway, Jerry will be utilizing a 2009 Bicknell chassis and there will be a third car in the works for competition out at some of the select open shows throughout the Northeast. Power for the race cars will come from the well-noted Precision Engine Shops with big block power for work at both racing facilities.

The Higbie Family owned signature numbered 97 cars have been missing at the speedway for the past couple of seasons but the large and loyal contingent of Higbie racing fans are delighted to see the famous and popular race cars working the racing surface hard in quest of more victories and more championships. Long-time Higbie sponsors Shaver Construction, Beaverkill Trout Hatchery, Mr K's Carpet Service, Hutchings Insurance, Behrent's Speed Center, SKJ Towing, Bada Bing Pizza and GA Motorsports Media will be assisting the Higbie Racing Team efforts.

A new chapter in the history of Higbie Racing will unfold later in the season when Jerry's Son Cody takes the wheel of the Junior Slingshot that was purchased and refurbished for Cody so he can begin his racing career at the Accord Speedway on Wednesday evenings when Midweek Madness commences at the speedway. Cody is eight years old and is looking forward to his initial runs with the car that will carry the number 83 when it appears at the speedways.

Higbie's business, Hig-Fab, has been super busy throughout the off-season but is currently making appointments for race cars to be refurbished for the season as the 2011 racing season. With sponsorship dollars dwindling, many of the racers are seeking to stay within the restraints of their tightening racing budgets so many of the racers have opted to retain their current equipment and have the experts with the Hig-Fab Team perform their magic to update the race cars. The Hig-Fab shop is ready, willing and able to serve your racing needs whether it be an entire new body or just new body pieces. The Hig-Fab shop can do frame repairs or front and rear clips and can supply new bumpers for any Chassis car racing on the circuit, including Slingshots and Micro Sprints. Scaling of the race cars and Performance shock work is all done in-house. For more information regarding the services and capabilities of the highly trained Hig-Fab Staff, please contact the shop at: 845 294 0898. Don't wait to have your race car updated or re-skinned for the next racing season, the time to prepare for the new season is now.

Saturday, admission is free, but each carload of fans that enters the parking lot will be charged just $10. That's right! Admission is just $10 per carload all night until 7:00 p.m. So come early!

K-C owner Jeff Schrader said, “We can get approximately 2,000 cars in this place and I would love to see it full. You can have one person or 15 in a car; whatever way they can fit for just $10. Admission is FREE from 3 to 7 p.m. but it costs $10 to park. That’s all! It’s that simple!”

BOBBY AND DANNY VARIN RACING NEWS

Sharon Springs, NY- Bobby Varin Drives To Fourth Place Finish At Fonda Speedway
By: Steve Pados, GA Motorsports Media

Bobby and Danny Varin were back in action over the past weekend with the Fonda Speedway results giving Bobby a fourth place finish in the Modified main event while son Danny scored a tenth place finish for the evening. Six time Fonda Modified champion Bobby Varin encountered a rain out at the Glen Ridge Speedway on Friday evening and then a problem not of his doing at the Utica Rome Speedway on Sunday evening. Bobby also ventured down to the Orange County Fair Speedway for the Big Show event on Tuesday and raced to an eleventh place finish on a night where one lane racing was the only deal in town.

With the Glen Ridge Speedway cancellation on Friday evening the current updated season point standings continue to shuffle but still showing Kenny Tremont with 510 points holding on to the point lead by a 32 point margin over Craig Hanson who has scored 478 points to date. Jack Brown slipped to third place with 463 points while Bobby Varin remains fourth with 426 markers. Jamike Sowle has closed to within one point of Varin with 425 points scored thus far. The remainder of the top ten is Lance Willix, Elmo Reckner, Paul Kinney, Don Ronca and Mike Ronca following in that order.

The Modified feature at Fonda saw Bobby starting from ninth place and the sledding was tough throughout the running of the main event. Bobby reached the top five by the ninth lap and later an incident with Dustin Delaney seemed to have done some damage to his race car as Bobby could only advance to fourth place when the checkered flag fell on the event. Matt Delorenzo scored his first win of the season and with the win throws his hat into the ring for the drivers seeking to unseat Bobby Varin from the championship perch he has enjoyed for the past three seasons at the speedway. Ronnie Johnson was the runner-up with Robert Perry in third and Bobby Varin in fourth and Mark Kislowksi completing the top five. The second five consisted of Jim Davis, Jeff Trombley, Luke Munroe, Ryan Odasz and Danny Varin. Bobby Varin continues to lead in the points chase with 328 points scored thus far into the season. Ronnie Johnson is the runner-up with 305 tallies and Matt DeLorenzo is third with 295 points earned. Ryan Odasz is fourth with 264 markers and Jeff Trombley is fifth with 262 tallies. Mark Kislowski, Alton Palmer, Josh Hohenforst, Jim Davis and Danny Varin complete the the current top ten point structure.

The Utica Rome event on Sunday evening found Bobby on the move early and after a restart that found Bobby already up into seventh position, and an incident with another racer caused Bobby to go pitside and ending his night with a 19th place run in the main event. Stewart Friesen claimed his second straight win with Paul Kinney scoring the runner-up slot. Ronnie Johnson was third with Billy Trexler Jr in fourth and Todd Burley completing the top five. The current point standings at Utica Rome show Stewart Friesen leading with 222 points with Pat Ward second with 198 tallies. Ronnie Johnson with 196 points is third while Willy Decker with 192 markers and Bobby Varin with 184 points completing the top five. Todd Burley, Jason Rood, Ted Lamb, Billy Trexler Jr and Paul Kinney complete the top ten in points.

The Tuesday night event at OCFS saw very little passing and most of the action happening late in the event when a rash of failed tires caused the finish to change with each passing lap. Billy Decker won the event with Tommy Meier in the runner-up role. Aussie Pete Britten was third with Gary Tompkins in fourth and Tim Fuller in fifth despite limping in on a flat tire himself.

Bobby is geared and ready to defend the Fonda track title he captured for the sixth time in his illustrious career in 2010. Bobby will be going after his fourth title in a row at Fonda and once again will be steering the famous 00 race cars of legendary car owner Dave Cruickshank and his Dover Brake business. Cruickshank has two cars readied for Bobby for the 2011 season with both of the race cars coming out of the Bicknell shops and powered by JPM motors. The team will concentrate on two nights of competition with Bobby set to defend his championship crown from a season ago at Fonda and seeking to gain the elusive championship crown at Utica Rome. Bobby led the points battle at Utica Rome for most of the past season until a couple of mechanical failures late in the season stifled his chances for the 2010 title. Son Danny will return to the seat of the Ed Monger owned Magsarus sponsored hot rod. Danny had a pervious stint in the race car two seasons ago. The race machine is out of the Teo Shops and will carry a Gary Waters powerplant to supply the power to the rear wheels. Danny raced hard all of last season and remained in the top five in points for most of the campaign until he too was bitten by mechanical failures that dropped him to eleventh place when the points chase ended.

Bobby will once again be aboard the Marv Pedrick/Andy Romano owned racer for his battles at Glen Ridge. A new race car out of the Bicknell Shops will have a selection of Pat Morrison or Jeff Boyd powerplants to choose from for the racing action and the car may be utilized for select additional events later in the season. Bobby will join forces with Ken Saya and the Commercial Roofing Team for all big shows and the ROC Dirt Series. A brand new race car was in place for the team at Syracuse and was later utilized for the Eastern States race at Orange County and World Finals races at Charlotte where Bobby landed a pair of sixth place finishes on National TV. Another Bicknell car is in the stable and will compliment the team with Morrison and Kevlar powerplants supplying the go-power. Bobby has also enjoyed his entry into the world of sprint car racing and once again will find the Pete Demitraszek sprinter available to him for select excursions where Bobby can pull off double duty at the facilities. Danny Varin tried his hand at sprint car racing last season and enjoyed his time in the seat and he too will find some time behind the wheel of the 305 Cuomo Sprinter at select events in the area.

Bobby has enjoyed a great career in the annals of racing. He is a past winner of the season ending classic Eastern States event held at the Orange County Fair Speedway having won the event in 2003 with a spectacular performance to claim the victory, a win that remains high on the list of achievements in the illustrious career of Bobby Varin. Bobby has also captured two New Yorker triumphs in recent years at the Utica Rome Speedway. In 2008 Bobby won the event in a 200 lap version and this past year won again this time leading every lap in a shortened version 100-lap grind in the curtain closer at the speedway. Even larger for Bobby in 2011 will be a couple of benchmarks in his racing career. Bobby currently ranks in seventh place among the all-time features winners at the Fonda Fairgrounds with 47 wins having surpassed the legendary Bill Wimble this past season who owned 43 wins to his credit. Former Fonda greats Mike Romano with 48 wins, Pete Corey with 50 wins and Kenny Shoemaker with 54 wins are next in line and Bobby is hoping for a stellar season to slide past this legendary trio of great competitors.

The Varin team continues to seek the same winning formula for success they enjoyed in 2010. The car owner for the Varin Team is the legendary Dave Cruickshank and the hard working team is headed up by Crew Chief John Bakuzonis, and crew members Dave Cross, Jeff Preston, Tyler Preston, Jack Hanna, Bob Gray and Garret Sagatis. With additional cars in the stable for Varin with the Commercial Roofing entry and the Romano/Pedrick machine, the 2011 season ahead will be full of racing excitement from beginning to end.

The Varin Family credits much of their success to their fine group of sponsors who continue to support their racing efforts. Dover Brake, Joe Bertothy Racing, JSB Fabrications, Countryman CARQUEST, Land Designs, Supply Wagon Rentals, Corigliano Towing, Leslie Home Improvement, GA Motorsports Media and Boys Club of America have all been solid in their support of the Varin racing efforts and encourage the racing community to support all of these fine sponsors whenever they have the capacity to do so. The Varin Team also welcomes new sponsor Jeff Bristol Trucking to the fine list of sponsors for the team. Bobby and Danny Varin would like to thank their their loyal fan base for the strong support in the past and look for continued support into the 2011 racing season and beyond. More updates will follow shortly for the Varin Racing team efforts. Follow the success of the 00 and 93 Varin Racing Team at their respective websites with all of the latest updates and information at: http://www.bobbyvarin.com or http://www.dannyvarin.com

ACCORD SPEEDWAY NEWS

Accord, NY - Accord Speedway Looks To Get Back On Track Friday Evening
By: Steve Pados, Accord Speedway Media

After suffering from a rain-out last Friday evening and then suffering a another cancellation on Wednesday night for the Midweek Madness program, the Accord Speedway hopes to get back on track on Friday evening, June 24th when the headline sponsor for the evening will be KB'S Racing Photos. Kevin Berryman is the official photographer at the speedway and heads up KB'S Rcing Photos and is offering up some special incentives for the racing fans on Friday evening as the theme for the evening is the American Cancer Society. The six division racing card will be highlighted by the VP Fuels/Rhinebeck Ford Modified division that will pay $2,000.00 to the winner who steers his race car into the Lucas Oil Products winners circle. Berryman has put a lot of time and effort into the upcoming promotion and the great Accord racing fans will have the opportunity to purchase many donated items from race car teams, owners and drivers with all proceeds going directly to the American Cancer Society. The airwaves are always buzzing with excitement as to what one might expect to happen at the "Gem in the Catskills" speedplant and "The Statesman" Jerry Higbie and "Mr Excitement" Kevin Ward will go pink on this special evening at the speedway as both drivers have placed new sheet metal and paint and graphics to their speed buggies for the evening of events. Autographed Sail Panels, Nose Pieces, Doors, T-Shirts and Driver Pics will be featured from many of the speedway drivers as well as Timmie McCreadie as the collection process for the evening will continues to proceed right up until race time.

The one week delay in the racing action will only increase the hype and will allow for a few of the racers that have not yet had their race cars out to the speedway to gain an extra week to button down the equipment for a run at the Accord roses. The time off has also allowed some of the drivers to re-group from a slow start and get back into the thick of things at the speedway. The Palmer Family has been in control of the Accord facility since late 2000 and the 2011 racing season marks the eleventh season of successful promotions since they took over the ownership of the speedway.

All feature events for the Modifieds will offer $2,000.00 to the winner. The Friday night racing will culminate with the running of the King of the Catskills weekend set for September 23rd and 24th. The yet to be determined format of the ROC Modified portion of the event will once again see $7,000.00 awaiting the winner of the WLR Construction sponsored feature event in the Lucas Oil Products winners circle. A series of qualifiers are in place in conjunction with other area speedways in an effort to have all of the speedways working together in a cohesive manner. The American Racer East Coast Modified Cup program is in place at Accord and will provide additional opportunities for the drivers and teams in 2011. The Accord Speedway management is very appreciative of all of the assistance they have received from track sponsors Lucas Oil Products, VP Fuels and American Racer, all divisions sponsors Rhinebeck Ford, Camper's Barn, DC Landscaping, Healey Brothers Group, Arkel Motors and Ruge's Part Centers as well as all of the many speedway billboard sponsors and the great fan base for their continuous support of the great racing found at the Accord Speedway.

Midweek Madness will get back on track on June 29th and the speedway will once again have a diverse group of racing divisions entertaining the fans with the quick-hitting show. Quads, Go-Karts, three divisions of Slingshots, 270 winged Micros, 600 Micros, Legends, Bandoleros, 4-Cylinder Juniors and 4-Cylinder Seniors will all be going to war on the Accord high banks and the addition of all of the exciting new divisions will produce some excellent side by side racing on the ultra-wide channeled speedway.

Admission for the great racing action remains the same from a season ago as Adults (12+) will be $12.00; Children (11 and under) will be $3.00. Indoor Seating is $20.00. The Family Value Pack that was met with much success last season is once again offered and is: 2 Adults, 2 Children, and $20.00 in food vouchers for $40.00, a savings of $10.00 to the consumer. Pit Gates open at the speedway at 4:30 and Spectator Gates open at 5. Hot laps kick off at 6:30 and the racing is slated to start at 7 PM.

Friday night racing at Accord runs from April through September with six great divisions going to war on the Accord high banks. This week KB'S Racing Photos will serve as the headline sponsor for the evening's event and will feature the five regular divisions at the speedway plus the return of the Legneds division and a qualifying event for the Five Mile Point Southern Tier 100 event to be held later in the season. Admission for the great racing action remains the same from a season ago as Adults (12+) will be $12.00; Children (11 and under) will be $3.00. The Family Value Pack that was met with much success last season is once again offered and is: 2 Adults, 2 Children, and $20.00 in food vouchers for $40.00, a savings of $10.00 to the consumer. Pit Gates open at the speedway at 4:30 and Spectator Gates open at 5. Hot laps kick off at 6:30 and the racing is slated to start at 7 PM.

Big offerings are in store for the racing fans in the upcoming weeks at the speedway. July 1st will find the fireworks expert "Wild Bill" back in the house to unleash his special brand of magic to the skies over the Accord facility with his one of a kind light show and fireworks extravaganza. The event will mark the eleventh time that Wild Bill will be making his dynamite appearance at the speedway. The now famous Chicken BBQ will compliment the speedway's salute to Independence Day. Come early and enjoy the always spectacular racing and the great food the speedway is noted for.

Final Preparations Made for Open Wheel's Big Event

3rd Annual Greg Schilling Memorial/I-77 Road Warrior Weekend
Big Bucks for the AMRA Modifieds

MT. ALTO, WV-One of the biggest dirt, open wheel weekends of the year is on tap this Friday and Saturday at Skyline

Speedway (June 24) and I-77 Raceway Park. The American Motor Racing Association will host the 3rd Annual Greg Schilling

Memorial, this Friday, June 24 at Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway in Stewart, Ohio; then the AMRA Road Warriors meet up at

I-77 Raceway Park in Fairplain, WV for another lucrative pay-off on June 25.


With its lavish purse and $1699-to-win price tag, the 3rd annual Greg Schilling Memorial Race asserts the AMRA as America's

"number one" sanctioning body of open-wheeled modifieds. Known as America's Most Competitive Open-wheeled Modified

Series, the AMRA sanctions weekly racing series in three states; playing host to one of the most prestigious touring series in its

"Road Warrior Challenge" tour. The Malta AMRA Series is also known for its healthy point fund and contingencies program.


"The purse is one of the biggest int he area for the modifieds, due to Billy Jarrell's contribution and the likes of racers,

fans and area businesses donating monies," said race organizer Kenny Johnson. "All of this makes it a great racing event. But in the

end, the race not only benefits the racers with a great purse, we want to to benefit the Greg Schilling Memorial Fund."


For the race, make checks payable to “Greg Schilling Memorial Fund” and mail to: Greg Schilling Memorial, c/o Kenny

Johnson, P.O. Box 525, Washington, WV 26181.


Greg Schilling was one of the early young-guns in the Ohio Valley area when IMCA E-Mods migrated to the Ohio Valley from

the Midwest. Greg was a hard-charger and won many races in the Ohio Valley area. Additionally, he later extended his fine talents

to the AMRA circuit. Whenever the #99 was in the line-up, it was one car that fans could count on to be a front-runner. Not only

was Greg a great racer, but he was a friend to many on the local racing scene. These friends, racers, and sponsors have all come

together in a big way to honor Greg's legacy.


The purse for the event parallels a full-blown late model pay-off, featuring nearly $7500 for the first five positions, The payoff is

still the same with 19 cars starting according to one of the organizers: Payoff 1-$1699, 2-$1599, 3-$1499, 4-$1399, 5-$1299,

6-$1199, 7-$1099, 8-$999, 9-$899, 10-$799, 11-$699, 12-$599, 13-$499, 14-$399, 15-$299, 16-$199, 17-$199, 18-$199

& 19-$199. The "99" at the end of each pay-off position is in honor of Schilling's number 99.


The inaugural winner was Chris Stotts, Shade, Ohio and last year's winner was Late Model Hall of Famer, Rick Aukland of

Zanesville, Ohio.


At I-77 Raceway Park, Gates Open - 3 pm; Concessions Open - 3 pm; Drivers Meetings - 5:45 pm; and
Hot Laps Begin at 6:00 pm. For More information please contact Kenney Newhouse - 304-552-8804; Craig Givens -

304-989-3305; or Shon Parsons - 304 531 3718 or visit << www.racei77.com >> The track entrance is just off the Fairplain,

WV exit of I-77. Google maps address is 63 Cedar Lakes Dr., Ripley, WV 25271.


Skyline and I-77 Raceway are just a little over 60 miles apart and approximately an hour and 15 minutes of driving time.
Also on the racing card June 25 at Skyline is a regular show for AMRA Late Models and Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association 410

Sprints, Mod Lites and Mini-Wedges. For further information about Skyline Speedway visit << www.skylinespeedway.net >> or

call 304-539-4410 or the track phone at 740-662-4111.

 

 

 

This race is to honor the memory of a good friend and fellow modified racer Greg Schilling. Greg raced modifieds with his brothers from 1991 to 2004 and he ran #99.

In 2003 Greg Schilling was diagnosed with colon cancer. He died November 25th, 2008. Within that time Greg remained optimistic about life. He realized the importance of helping others during difficult times. In September 2008 the community pulled together to help Greg & his family through a tough time in their life.

A memorial fund has been established in memory of Greg by his family. As this fund grows the money will be put back into the community in the form of scholarships for a Fort Frye and Waterford High School senior graduate in honor of Greg. To date, $3000 has been donated in Scholarships to graduating seniors.

In addition to the scholarships, the fund also assists individuals or families that have an illness or a life altering event that requires financial assistance. To date, over $6,000 has been handed out to the following individuals.

 

Your support is not just for a race, but for a person or a family in need and your donation would be greatly appreciated.

It is anticipated that June 24, 2011 will be bigger and better for the racers, the fans and the Memorial Fund than the previous 2 years. We hope you will be a part of this great event, which will be held at Skyline Speedway in Stewart, OH.

If you would like to be a sponsor of this race, please contact Kenny Johnson 304-615-2899 or Mike McPherson 740-590-3105 to be a part of this great event!

For the race, make checks payable to “Greg Schilling Memorial Fund” and mail to: Greg Schilling Memorial, c/o Kenny Johnson, P.O. Box 525, Washington, WV 26181.

Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Event at Wythe Raceway

Has Been Rained Out Tonight

 

WAYCROSS, GA (June 22, 2011) - The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will be back in action during the Fourth of July Weekend. The series will stop at Portsmouth Raceway Park in Portsmouth, OH on July 2nd and at Muskingum County Speedway in Zanesville, OH on July 3rd. The event scheduled for July 1st at Beckley (WV) Motorsports Park has been canceled.

 

The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will run a complete show at both Portsmouth and Muskingum County with Red Buck Cigar Time Trials, Heat Races, B-Mains and $10,000 to win feature events.

 

The cancellation of the event at Beckley Motorsports Park was due to the facility ceasing operations with promoter Jim Williams. "It is with a heavy heart, that we have to cancel the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event at Beckley," said promoter Jim Williams. "The economy and weather in our area has really put a damper on our car and fan count this year, and we felt it was in the best interest to cease operations, I want to sincerely apologize to Ritchie Lewis (series director), the series as a whole, and to the drivers and fans," said Williams, who's facility hosted the LOLMDS for the first time last season.

 

Jimmy Owens of Newport, TN currently leads the LOLMDS Championship Points Standings heading into the Fourth of July Weekend of events in the Buckeye State. Owens, the 2011 DART Show-Me 100 winner leads two-time series champ, Scott Bloomquist of Mooresburg, TN by 120-points. The 2011 Dream Winner, Don O'Neal of Martinsville, IN has climbed to within 50-points of Bloomquist and currently sits third in the championship standings.

 

Steve Francis of Ashland, KY, a regular on the series tour for the first time, stands fourth in the points followed by top rookie contender, Jared Landers of Batesville, AR; Brad Neat of Dunnville, KY; Ray Cook of Brasstown, NC; 4-time series champ, Earl Pearson Jr. of Jacksonville, FL; Mike Marlar of Winfield, TN; and Dale McDowell of Chickamauga, GA. McDowell won the River Days Rumble last September at PRP.

 

Other drivers expected to be on hand at both Portsmouth and Muskingum County include; Bub McCool of Vicksburg, MS; 15-year-old sensation, Tyler Reddick of Corning, CA; John Blankenship of Williamson, WV; Chris Wall of Springfield, LA; Eric Wells of Hazard, KY, Steve Casebolt of Richmond, IN and Frank Heckenast Jr. of Frankfort, IL.

 

The series visit on Saturday Night, July 2nd will be the first of two this season for the Donna Rayburn & Chuck Greenslate co-promoted Portsmouth Raceway Park located along the scenic Ohio River. In the previous five trips to the facility there have been five different winners, including: Steve Francis, Josh McGuire, Jimmy Owens, Earl Pearson Jr. and Dale McDowell. For more information on PRP, go to www.portsraceway.com.

 

When the series rolls into Muskingum County Speedway on Sunday Night, July 3rd, not only will the fans see the stars and cars of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series in town for the Budweiser 50, but the area's finest fireworks display to celebrate the independence holiday will light up the skies. In the previous six appearances at the Ronnie Moran-promoted facility there have been six different drivers enter the Lucas Oil Victory Lane including; Don O'Neal, Steve Shaver, Steve Casebolt, Dan Schlieper, Jason Covert and Earl Pearson Jr. For more info the track's website address is www.themuskingumcountyspeedway.com.

Chub Frank Salvages 12th-Place Finish At Winchester, Looks Ahead To This Weekend’s Firecracker 100

BEAR LAKE, PA – June 21, 2011 – Chub Frank got in a final tune-up at Lernerville Speedway and ended a month-long break from World of Outlaws Late Model Series competition at Winchester (Va.) Speedway last weekend.

Now the veteran driver known as ‘Chubzilla’ has his sights squarely set on the fifth annual WoO LMS Firecracker 100 this weekend (June 23-25) at the four-tenths-mile Lernerville oval located in Sarver, Pa.

Frank, 49, of Bear Lake, Pa., enters the Firecracker 100 weekend, which features 30-lap, $6,000-to-win preliminary A-Mains on Thurs., June 23, and Fri., June 24, and the $30,000-to-win 100-lap finale on Sat., June 25, with three top-five finishes in as many visits to Lernerville this season. Last Friday night he finished fifth in the track’s 25-lap DIRTcar UMP Late Model feature.

“I’m looking forward to the Firecracker,” said Frank, who scored a win and a second-place finish in his previous starts at Lernerville earlier this season. “I’d love to win that 30-grand, but it’s gonna be tough. I’m not even sure what car I’m gonna run yet.”

Frank entered his newest Corry Rubber/Hino Toyota/Horton Equipment Rocket No. 1* in last Friday night’s program, but its performance on a faster, tackier track surface than he had raced on earlier this year left him uncertain if it will be the right machine for the Firecracker. He thinks there’s a good shot the track surface might not get as slick as usual for the 100-lapper because weather forecasts for the weekend do not call for extremely high temperatures and clear, sunny days.

“I want the track to be 19 seconds (a lap),” said Frank, stating his preference for a slick surface this weekend. “If the track has a lot of traction and is 17 seconds (a lap), then this new car doesn’t seem like it will like it as much. We’ll have to see what happens.”

Frank has started all four previous Firecracker 100s with a top finish of fifth to his credit, in 2007. He’s also recorded finishes of sixth (’08 and ‘10) and 12th (’09).

Last weekend also got Frank back on the road with the WoO LMS after the national tour sat idle since May 12. He salvaged a 12th-place finish in the Gunter’s Honey Spring 50 at Winchester after using a provisional spot to start 23rd.

Frank timed 11th-fastest in the 30-car field and started fourth in the second heat race, but he and fellow WoO LMS regular Tim Fuller were swept up in a turn-two tangle early in the prelim when J.T. Spence went around in front of them. Frank retired to the pit area with front bumper and nosepiece damage that had to be hastily repaired.

Despite just one caution flag midway through the race to slow the action in the A-Main, Frank managed to work his way forward to the verge of the top 10.

“The car was actually good and we were going to the front,” said Frank. “From the dead-last row, finishing 12th was O.K. That heat race just put us too far behind.”

Frank remained sixth in the WoO LMS points standings through 11 events this season, 120 points behind leader Rick Eckert.

Chub Frank Racing receives support from many valued sponsors, including Corry Rubber, Lake Shore Paving, Hino Toyota, Sorbera Family Chiropractic, Horton Equipment, All-Star Performance, Slavic Corporation, Custom Race Engines, GW Performance, Integra Shocks and Hoosier Tire.

For Immediate Release

Still Super at Winchester: Richards Breaks Through for First World of Outlaws Late Model Series Victory of 2011 and Becomes Tour's Career Win Leader

 

SHINNSTON, W. Va. - June 20, 2011 - A visit to Winchester (Va.) Speedway was just what Josh Richards needed to get back on the winning track on the World of Outlaws Late Model Series.

 

Racing at a track where he's shined in special-show starts over the past two years - and driving the Ernie Davis-owned Rocket No. 25 that has been his mount every time he's attacked the one-third-mile oval - Richards captured Saturday night's Gunter's Honey Spring 50 to earn his long-awaited first victory of 2011 on the national tour.

 

With this triumph, the 23-year-old star from Shinnston, W.Va., became the winningest driver on the WoO LMS since its reincarnation in 2004 under the World Racing Group banner. It was his 29th career win on the circuit, breaking him out of a tie with Steve Francis atop the win list.

 

"I'm excited to finally get a win this year and break that tie with Francis (on the career list)," Richards said in a WoO LMS press release. "It still feels unreal to be the all-time winner now."

 

In the first-ever WoO LMS event at Winchester, Richards, who started from the pole position, passed Vic Coffey for the lead on lap seven of the 50-lap A-Main and never relinquished the top spot. He survived a late-race challenge from Jamie Lathroum to secure the checkered flag.

 

"I saw my crew guys (motioning from the infield) - I knew someone was coming," Richards said in the WoO LMS release. "I thought it was (Darrell) Lanigan, (but) it was Lathroum. He came up through there and raced hard.

 

"I was just trying to keep the lead," he added. "I felt like we were a little bit too soft on tires, so I was just doing all I could to hold on at the end. That was definitely the hardest (race) I've ever won here."

 

The victory gave Richards eight wins in his last 10 starts at Winchester, including three this season. All of his scores have come behind the wheel of Davis' No. 25, a machine he runs in most non-WoO LMS events.

 

"It was just more convenient (to run Davis' machine)," said Richards, who entered the first WoO LMS event of his career in a car not owned by his father. "Ernie's is 25 minutes up the road (in Martinsburg, W. Va.) and we've been running good in this car here, so it just made sense to bring it here.

 

"Our car would've been fine tonight. I feel like we still could have won in it. But there's no doubt that we run great here with Ernie's stuff, so why not stay with what works? It's also cool to get a World of Outlaws win for Ernie and his family here at their home track."

 

Richards, who timed eighth-fastest in the 30-car field, won his heat race after Davis' Joey Pingleton-led crew changed a seized-up rear end on the car. He then set out on a mission in the A-Main.

 

"Starting on the pole, I knew it was our race to lose," said Richards. "I was hungry for a win and I wasn't gonna lose from a lack of effort."

 

Richards, who came to Winchester after finishing 10th in Friday's ARCA Racing Series RainEater Wiper Blades 200 at Michigan International Speedway, drew closer to the top spot in the WoO LMS points standings with his victory. He sits second in the points race after 11 events, trailing Rick Eckert by just 12 points.

 

Next on Richards' WoO LMS agenda is the fifth Firecracker 100 at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa., a three-day extravaganza that runs from June 23-25. The weekend includes full programs topped by 30-lap, A-Mains on Thurs., June 23, and Fri., June 24, and the 100-lapper on Sat., June 25.

 

Richards won the first preliminary feature during last year's Firecracker 100 weekend but fell short in the 100-lap headliner, finishing seventh. He is confident that this year he can make a bid for the biggest win of his career driving his father's blue No. 1.

Virginia’s Own Denny Hamlin Takes the Checkered Flag

In a quest to make it into the 2011 Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Championship, Virginia’s own Denny Hamlin drove his way to the checkered flag Sunday at Michigan International Speedway.

Sunday’s win is Hamlin’s first of the season, after winning eight times in 2010 and contending for the series title. He entered the weekend 12th in points with no guarantee that he would make the 2011 Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Championship. With Sunday’s victory, Hamlin jumped to the ninth position in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series point standings and with the win is one step closer to securing a spot in the championship field.

“This is the point of the season where we really need to start hitting our stride, and hopefully we've got another good 10 weeks before the Chase starts," said Hamlin. "Realistically, you know if the whole world collapses and ends, you're still one win away from getting a Chase spot, pretty much. We know two wins pretty much puts you in. From here on out, we know we're one win away."

Hamlin will return to Richmond International Raceway, his home track, on Saturday, September 10 for the “One Last Race to Make The Chase,” as the defending race winner. Tickets for the September 9-10 NASCAR doubleheader weekend are on sale now and can be purchased at www.rir.com  or by calling the Richmond International Raceway ticket office at 866-455-RACE (7223).
