RESULTS FOR 2-22

DARLAND STRETCHES NATIONAL WIN STREAK
TO 23 YEARS WITH SUNDAY OCALA WIN

Ocala, Florida…….Dave Darland added to the most impressive streak in USAC history on Sunday night at Bubba Raceway Park, as he added another AMSOIL National Sprint Car win to his list and made it 23 consecutive seasons with at least one win in a USAC National series. The Lincoln, Indiana veteran’s all-time record 54th National Sprint Car win came in flag-to-flag fashion aboard the Phillips Motorsports – Trench Shoring #71P DRC/Foxco.

“My crew had to work their asses off just to get the car ready for the feature after some issues in the heat race and then gave me a great car even without having much chance to keep up with the track. We have just had some bad luck out of the gate, but tonight was a great way to rebound. It’s good to be down here while it’s snowing at home, and I can drink a beer to celebrate while it’s warm outside. And it’s good to get my first win in the state of Florida!” Darland said.

Darland led at the start over polesitter Chris Windom, while Robert Ballou was the early man on the move, jumping into the top-five in just a few laps after starting tenth. A red flag on lap six brought things to a screeching halt as Brady Short flipped hard into turn three and collected Landon Simon. Neither driver was hurt.

After a tangle on the ensuing restart, Ballou found himself bringing out the next caution as he slid to a stop in turn-three, giving up the fifth spot but restarting at the tail. Under that caution, defending champion and current point leader Brady Bacon pulled to the infield. He started the night as the ProSource “Fast Time” winner, but registered a DNF in the feature.

From there, the race went green and, despite losing brakes on lap-five, Darland was able to pull away from the field. He encountered very little lapped traffic, but handled it with ease en route to a 2.482-second victory over Windom, who found the podium for the second night in a row aboard the Lein Acres – Mid-State Equipment #2 DRC/Speedway Mopar.

“You always want to win, but I can’t be much happier with the weekend we put together. To get two podium finishes with a brand new deal and guys new to sprint car racing – I’m just fortunate Hans (Lein) gave me a ride down here. I had to get in below the hole in one, but I dropped down a little in three and four which seemed to help. Dave was just too far out at that point,” Windom said.

Jon Stanbrough also planted his brand new operation on the podium to end the weekend, as well, as he ran third in the MP Environmental Services – AED Motorsports Products #81 Spike/J&D.

“To come out of here with two top-fives with a brand new team is pretty good, and we have things going in the right direction. It’s nice to have all the people supporting us, and commenting about how much they like the car, even. We have a good group of people working on this and supporting us. Daryl (Tate) is really easy to work with for me, and hopefully we can keep improving and knock some wins down. It’s been a lot of work in a very short amount of time to get this together, and it’s been stressful to get it all together and there’s still much more to do when we get home, but I’m very grateful for all the support,” Stanbrough said.

Kevin Thomas, Jr. found himself back in the top-five on Saturday night aboard the Bakken Concrete – Griffin’s Propane #17RW Maxim/Fisher, and new point leader Chase Stockon rounded out the top-five in the Superior Tank & Trailer – Crescent Electric Supply #32 DRC/Fisher.

C.J. Leary earned the ProSource “Hard Charger Award” after driving from 17th to finish seventh.

RESULTS FOR 2-21

Bell Outruns Burton For New Smyrna Victory

Smith Takes World Series Super Late Model Championship

By Jason Christley

NEW SMYRNA, Fla. -- NASCAR's future was on full display Saturday night at New Smyrna Speedway.

Christopher Bell, 20, won his first NASCAR Super Late Model race, pulling away from 14-year-old Harrison Burton to take the Bruce Gowland Memorial 100. And Zane Smith, 15, finished fourth to claim the week-long championship in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series track's 49th Annual World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing.

"It's really special to me," said Bell, who raced three times at the World Series for Kyle Busch Motorsports. "When we came down here, we didn't know what to expect. We thought we'd have a pretty good car, but it's so tough. These guys have been running all week long. But we were able to get going really good right off the bat.

"I didn't qualify really well all three nights, but we were able to come away with this 100 lapper."

The Norman, Oklahoma, driver won 24 times last year in open-wheel Midget competition.

Bell started 10th and moved to the front quickly. He followed in Burton's tracks for most of the night before making his move on Lap 80. He weathered two cautions and pulled away from Burton in the closing laps.

"I knew we had a really good hot rod, I just had to take care of it," Bell said. "One hundred laps is a long time. Whenever I got behind him, I was just kind of riding. I knew I had a really good car. I was just trying to learn where I had to make my move. And then we got late in the race and I started to pressure him more and more."

Bell finished fourth Friday and second to David Garbo Jr. on Thursday.

Burton, the son of former NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver, was going for his third win of the week.

“We got a bit snug in the center and that played into his hands really good," Burton said. "He could roll the center way better than us. We kinda beat him a little bit up off. I had a lot of fun racing and his car was really, really quick and so was ours, so it made it a really good race. Once he got passed us, he kind of drove away a little bit.

Smith took the title by three points over Garrett Jones. Steve Wallace, the son of NASCAR Hall of Famer Rusty Wallace, was third and Burton fourth.

"I can’t thank the guy enough," said Burton. "They worked hard every day throughout the week. This week has been a lot of fun, I’m glad we finished on a high note.”

Smith, from Huntington Beach, California, won once -- the first of two 35-lap features that were run Wednesday -- and claimed the big prize with his consistency of the seven races. His average finish was 5.8.

"We’re probably the happiest guys out here," said Smith. "We didn’t expect to win and to win the championship is even bigger. I have the best team out here."

Tyler Thomas won the Pro Late Model Division finale, a 35-lap feature, after initial winner Michael Lira was disqualified in post-race technical inspection for a weight infraction. Dalton Armstrong, who finished second, won the championship. The Florida Modified division also concluded Saturday, with Doug Moff winning the race and Tim Moore taking home the title.

The track's NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Modified division ended its run Friday, with Ryan Preece winning the 100-lap Richie Evans Memorial 100 and winning the week-long crown.

Clanton Conquers DIRTcar Nationals with Fourth Victory

Williams rolls to Super DIRTcar win, Wight claims event championship

BARBERVILLE, Fla. — Feb. 21, 2015 — Shane Clanton became the first driver in history to win four Dirt Late Model races during one DIRTcar Nationals when he pulled off a breathtaking slider to go from third to first in turn three on Saturday night at Volusia Speedway Park. It was his fourth World of Outlaws Late Model Series victory of the season.

In the Super DIRTcar Big-Block Modified Series finale at DIRTcar Nationals, Neal Williams ran down Billy Pauch and rolled to an upset victory in a field of superstars.

This week, though, belonged to Clanton. He has won several different ways this week at Volusia, and on Saturday night he started sixth, worked his way to third by lap 13, was in second by lap 18 in a battle with Jimmy Owens, dropped to third for a couple of laps then pulled off a massive slider on lap 31 going into turn three, splitting race-long leader Tim McCreadie and Owens. From there, it was all Clanton as he drove to victory and claimed the Big Gator trophy for winning the Dirt Late Model week DIRTcar Nationals championship.

“That was a good ol’ Georgia ass-kickin’ right there,” said Clanton, of Zebulon, Ga. “We were by far the class of the field. I don’t give a damn what anybody says. We worked our ass off all winter long. This feels good. I drove my heart out tonight just biding my time and making the right moves at the right time.

“The pace tonight was just unbelievably fast. I was afraid I was gonna hurt my right-rear tire, so I just paced myself the first 15 or 20 laps. Owens got up to second there and I knew I had to go then. I just took the right moves and got back by him and made the right move to get by McCreadie.”

Owens wound up second with Scott Bloomquist, the only driver other than Clanton to win this week at Volusia, in third.

“Shane really just had everybody covered tonight and he was good all weekend,” Bloomquist said. “We know when we get beat, and we got beat this week.”

Williams stunned everybody in the Super DIRTcar Big-Block Modified finale, keeping pace with the leaders before pulling away from a field of modified legends like Billy Pauch, Brett Hearn and Danny Johnson.

“I was just able to stay in my zone, everyone talks about running in second in lapped traffic, I just put that in my brain and it really paid off,” said Williams, of Pittsgrove, N.J. “Pauch made a couple of mistakes and I was able to capitalize. Once I got out in front, I knew if I stayed smooth and consistent, I didn’t have any wheel spin, the car was on rails and we were able to pull away.”

Larry Wight earned the Big Gator for the Big-Block Modified week championship at Volusia. In four races, Wight posted a third, a fourth and two seventh-place finishes.

“We had some struggles tonight and brought out the backup car and started in the rear again,” said Wight, who restarted from the tail of the field early on Friday night and finished third. “Maybe if we started in the top-20 we could have won it, but Neal had a great car, the dominant car, and he seemed to be able to hold his own.”

NOTEBOOK – Early in the Super DIRTcar Big-Block Modified Series feature event, several cars collided with one rolling on the frontstretch that caused part of the racing surface to come up and fly over the fence, injuring four fans. The track safety crew responded immediately and attended to the injuries. Two fans were transported to a local hospital for further evaluation while the other two fans left on their own. … Saturday night was the finale to the 2015 edition of the DIRTcar Nationals. The 2016 event will be Feb. 9-20, 2016. Renewals are taking place right now; tickets go on sale April 1, 2015. … The next event at Volusia Speedway Park will be March 8-10 during Bike Week featuring the AMA Flat Track Series among others.

NIGHT 2 "WINTER DIRT GAMES" WIN BELONGS TO BACON

Brady Bacon wins USAC Sprints night 2 at Bubba Raceway Park FL Paul Gretzinger photo

Ocala, Florida…….Defending AMSOIL Sprint Car National Champion Brady Bacon wasted very little time getting himself into the win column with the 2015 tour, as he led all thirty laps and held on after a final-lap challenge from Chase Stockon to take Saturday’s “Winter Dirt Games VI” 30-lapper. The Broken Arrow, Oklahoma driver’s ninth-career victory put him back into the point lead.

Bacon got the jump on fellow front-row starter Chris Windom, as Stockon ran the high side into the third-spot in the early laps. A few laps later, Stockon turned underneath Windom off turn-four to take the second spot. The race went nearly to the halfway point before a yellow, negating a chance for Stockon to use traffic to pass Bacon, who was slowed up behind the tail of the field.

Just as the leaders again approach the back of the field, Kyle Robbins stopped after contact with Shane Cockrum, who had slowed suddenly down the backstretch. With a three-lap dash to the checkered, Stockon tried a new approach to go after Bacon. On the final lap, he entered turn-one higher and came out of turn-two with enough momentum to pull alongside Bacon down the backstretch. The two nearly touched as they moved through the final corners, with Bacon throttling to the checkered with his front wheels in the air for the $5,000 victory.

It was the 87th win all-time for the Hoffman Auto Racing – Mean Green #69 Triple X/Williams Mopar.

“He got a good run on us there and drove it in about as far as he could without making contact, which is exactly what I would have done in the same situation. We’ve seen both extremes of track conditions now and been good on both, so that’s a great feeling going forward. It’s a relief to get that first win of the season, as they can be elusive sometimes. We had a hiccup with an engine issue on practice night, but these guys are champions for a reason and have had us ready to go the last two nights,” Bacon said.

Stockon, who started the night by taking the ProSource “Fast Time Award,” made it two podium finishes in a row as he stalked Bacon to the checkered in the Superior Tank & Trailer – Crescent Electric Supply #32 DRC/Fisher.

“I could just about throw up after coming that close. The drive to win races makes this one hard to swallow, but we feel good about coming out and being this good on such different tracks. We like to see tracks that are completely different like that, and it’s definitely tested us. I knew I had to change something to have a shot at him at the end, and I thought I could make that work down through one and two. I closed up on him but wanted to keep it clean,” Stockon said.

Chris Windom made it a successful second night aboard the Lein Acres – Mid-State Equipment #2 DRC/Speedway Mopar as he rounded out the podium.

“We’ve made big improvements with this car every time we’ve hit the track. Tonight was tough with dealing with some rough, and dodging the holes a bit. It’s actually gone smoother than I expected to bring out a whole new sprint car deal, and I’m excited to keep working on it and try to gain speed every time we go out. I’m grateful to Hans (Lein) for putting me in his car, and hopefully we can make something of it,” Windom said.

Kevin Thomas, Jr. finished fourth in the Bakken Concrete – Griffin’s Propane #17RW Maxim/Fisher, and Kyle Cummins came from ninth to round out the top-five in the Rick Pollock – Bates Commodities #21x Maxim/Advanced.

Jon Stanbrough picked up the ProSource “Hard Charger Award” after advancing from 20th to finish 14th.

Mark Smith Wins 14th Annual Ronald Laney Memorial
Picking Up $10,000 Payday At East Bay Raceway Park

Smith On Wing Sat Nite Winner 

Smith Sat Nite Winner 1

Mark Smith is the King of the 360’s!

TAMPA, Fla. (February 21, 2015) Incredible doesn’t being to describe the slide job festival that took place with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by MAVTV American Real in the 17th annual King of the 360’s and 14th annual Ronald Laney Memorial as Pennsylvania’s Mark Smith claimed the evening’s $10,000 bounty in his second start.

“This is probably one of the biggest of my career. Next to winning an Outlaw show in the Prelim night at the National Open, this one ranks right up there,” said Smith when asked what winning the Ronald Laney Memorial meant to him. “We ran third the first night, second the second night; we had to win. We couldn’t go home fourth or fifth so this was it.”

Asked about being challenged for the lead, Smith replied, “We kept having those short runs and I just need to get heat in my tire. I knew once I got my tires hot, it would lock down and I could go anywhere I wanted. I just needed to be patient and wait on my car and hopefully, it would go green long enough. When it did, it was all over from there.”

With the lead exchanged over and over at both ends of the East Bay Raceway Park, Smith opened the 40 lap affair from the outside of the front row. Going slide for slide with Brad Loyet the first two laps, Smith slowly distanced himself from the Vacuworx No. 05.

Jumping to third from sixth on Lap 3, Aaron Reutzel began tracking down Loyet for the runner-up spot with both starting to run down Smith who wasted no time catching the tail of the field.

Slowed on Lap 10, the caution displayed again on Lap 12 and 13.

With slower cars out of the mix among the top-three, the restart on Lap 13 saw Smith and Loyet charge low, leaving the cushion wide open for Aaron Reutzel. Running the boards into the first turns, the B.C. Funds No. 87 came out leading into the third turn, only to have Smith pull the slide job exiting turn-four. Returning the favor in the next corner, Reutzel was hooked on the cushion.

Approaching the tail of the field on Lap 18, Reutzel’s advantage began to wane. Stalking the No. 87, Smith closed the gap by Lap 20; taking the race lead three laps later.

While Smith set sail, the race for second took hold with Johnny Herrera coming from seventh. Exchanging sliders, Herrera’s night nearly ended in the closing laps when the MVT No. 45x plowed through the cushion in turns three and four, riding the wall all the way to the front straight-a-way.

While Herrera was able to recover, the bobble was enough to allow Reutzel to get away for second.

“We were really good in the beginning,” said Reutzel. “I was just biding my time and taking it easy, but that one restart when Covington slid me, I figured that was a good time to get going and when I needed to go, we were plenty fast. It was just, racing a car like his [Mark], they’ve been fast all week, and it was a matter of who got through traffic better and they did their job.”

Running with a full head of steam from seventh, Herrera was asked if he felt like he had a shot at the win.

“I really felt like I did. We started seventh and I lost some spots on the start. My fault, I just didn’t get a good start but we rallied back and made a good run and got rolling really good until I tried to knock the wall down,” chuckled Herrera. “We had a great car, finished third and I’m looking forward to more of these.”

Brad Loyet would end up fourth after leading the opening lap with Terry McCarl grabbing fifth in his 15th King of the 360’s feature start.

Jason Sides climbed from ninth to sixth with Tony Bruce, Jr. seventh. Greg Hodnett slipped from fifth to eighth with Jeff Swindell and Chad Kemenah completing the top-ten.

Running through six Qualifiers, wins went to Johnny Herrera, Jason Sides, Matt Kurtz, Chad Kemenah, Greg Wilson, and Tony Bruce, Jr. A pair of C-Features went to Hud Horton and Brad Greer. B-Features were topped by A.J. Maddox and Wayne Johnson.

RESULTS FOR 2-20

Preece Drives His Way All The Way Back

Wins Richie Evans 100, Clinches New Smyrna World Series Title

NEW SMYRNA, Fla. -- Ryan Preece dug himself a hole on the first night of the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing, and a week later he completed his drive all the way back to the top.

The 24-year-old from Berlin, Connecticut, captured the prestigious 30th Richie Evans Memorial 100 on Friday night at New Smyrna (Florida) Speedway. The race is named after the Modified legend and NASCAR Hall of Famer from Rome, New York, who won six championships at the Florida half-mile high-banked oval.

“It’s something great," Preece said. "This car is unreal, it’s made it so much fun to drive. To win this Richie Evans Memorial means a lot, it’s something I’ll remember throughout my career.”

The win also gave him the championship for the 49th running of the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series track's week-long World Series event.

“It’s awesome," said Preece, the 2013 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion. "I’m sure we’ll be back with Eddie and Connie (Partridge) and the TS Haulers bunch next year, trying to do it again.”

Harrison Burton, the 14-year-old son of former NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Jeff Burton, became the first driver to win twice in the Super Late Model division.

Preece won four of the six races. But he entered the finale third in points because he was disqualified last Friday on opening night after crossing the finish line first.

Bonsignore began the night with a two-point lead over JR Bertuccio and four over Preece.

“I wasn’t even thinking about that deal,” Preece said. “I was just thinking about trying to win the damn race. We pulled it off, some I’m happy.”

Spencer Davis coasted out front until a caution on Lap 65 brought everybody down pit road. Preece, who was seventh when the yellow flew, came out sixth and took just six laps to drive to the front. While Preece was out front, Bonsignore got up to third before fading in the closing laps.

Chuck Hossfeld finished second, followed by Eric Goodale, JR Bertuccio and Bonsignore.

It was enough to give the championship to Preece.

Said Partridge, who won the 2014 World Series with Ron Silk: “It’s great to come down here and bring a new car from Troyer. Essentially the whole week went according to plan. We had a lot of fun.

“Ryan Preece, what can I say about him? I’ve watched him win a few races in the No. 3 car when no one else could. I knew when he got in the 16 car he was going to be a real threat. We’re lucky to have him.”

Hossfeld finished second in points and Goodale, who won the John Blewett III Memorial 76 on Wednesday, finished third.

Burton emerged from his second battle with Steve Wallace in three nights. Wallace, the son of NASCAR Hall of Famer Rusty Wallace, won Wednesday's 35-lap Super Late Model race, driving a dented and battered car to Victory Lane after Burton was penalized for aggressive driving when he turned Wallace around fighting for the lead.

Friday, though, Burton took his time and dispatched of Wallace to take the point with 10 laps to go.

"All those thoughts from the other night went away as soon as I passed him," said Burton in Victory Lane.

Wallace settled for second, followed by Zane Smith, Christopher Bell and Thursday night winner David Garbo Jr. Paul Schafer Jr., Garrett Jones, Drew Brannon, Denver Foran and Joey Mucciacciaro rounded out the top 10.

Smith holds a narrow three-point on Jones and a seven-point cushion on Wallace heading into the final night. The Super Late Models will cap the week with the 2nd Bruce Gowland Memorial 100.

Austin Nason won the 35-lap Pro Late Model race Friday, while Doug Moff won the 20-lap Florida Modified race.

Clanton Continues Conquering DIRTcar Nationals Late Model Events

Captures third win this week at Volusia; Laubach tops Super DIRTcar field

BARBERVILLE, Fla. - Feb. 20, 2015 - Shane Clanton is making the DIRTcar Nationals his personal playground, winning on Friday night for the third time in four races this week at Volusia Speedway Park after Rick Laubach had earlier secured the Super DIRTcar Big-Block Modified Series feature win.

Clanton set quick time and started on the pole for the 50-lap World of Outlaws Late Model main event. He was rolling through the corners at the half-mile dirt oval with ease, but Dale McDowell charged forward from the seventh starting spot and swept past Clanton for the lead on lap 31.

McDowell started to pull away and bring Chub Frank with him, but a caution bunched the field and gave Clanton the chance he needed. Clanton restarted on the outside of Frank looking straight ahead at McDowell. On lap 37 Clanton got by Frank, then on lap 38 he worked past McDowell and powered to the checkered flag.

"Dale made me get up on the wheel there," said Clanton, of Zebulon, Ga. "I was driving too hard and sealed the right-rear tire. Luckily that caution came out and let me cool it off and get the edges back cool so it would go again. I don't know if he went a little softer on the right-rear tire than I did, but he pushed and give me the opportunity to get by him on the outside and that's all I needed."

Rick Laubach started the night by riding around the rim and holding off Stewart Friesen to capture the Super DIRTcar Big-Block Modified Series 30-lap main event. Larry Wight, who had been sent to the rear after early contact with Billy Pauch, charged all the way back through the 26-car field to finish third. The win was Laubach's first at DIRTcar Nationals since 2013.

"With three to go I saw Friesen underneath me and I thought, 'Son of a gun, these guys never give up,'" said Laubach, of Quakertown, Pa. "I just had to be on the top side, and it didn't hurt starting on the pole even though we started second Thursday night and went backwards. I'm just thankful to be here. The last time we were here my boy was asleep in the truck and now he's got another Gator trophy."

Saturday night is the conclusion to the two-week festival of speed, with World of Outlaws Late Models and Super DIRTcar Big-Block Modifieds wrapping up the event for another year.

BALLOU OPENS 2015 WITH "WINTER DIRT GAMES VI" WIN

Robert Ballou wins opening night at Bubba Raceway Park Fri. night. 2nd Chase Stockon and 3rd was Brady Bacon.

Ocala, Florida…….Robert Ballou opened the 2015 AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship much the way he ended last season, as he fended off 2014 series champion Brady Bacon and drove away for the opening night win in “Winter Dirt Games VI.” The Rocklin, California hit double-digits in career wins as he took the Ballou Motorsports – Blakesley Auto #12 Maxim/Ott to a 2.165-second victory.

“I felt like this place owed me one after losing one with a flat tire a couple years back. We kept our deal together, and Derrick Bye kept working hard to keep this momentum rolling. We’re working with the same car that won Oval Nationals to end last year. I knew we were in a tough spot as we hit traffic, and Bacon can get off the bottom so well here. But we battled back and got by him, and that’s a great feeling,” Ballou said.

Ballou began from the pole and led early over Justin Grant & Jon Stanbrough, as Bacon battled from row three after setting the ProSource “Fast Time Award” to open the night. Bacon tracked down Ballou as he encountered slower cars on lap ten, and Bacon snuck past him to the lead on lap 12.

Ballou countered, though, and swept back past Bacon down the backstretch, holding him off as they came to complete lap 14. A lap later, Kyle Cummins stopped to bring the race’s only caution.

Ballou was unmatched after the restart, as Chase Stockon, who had just entered the top-five after falling back early in the race, began to march up on the high side. He caught Bacon and slid past into turn-one to take the second spot. In the final laps, Ballou again caught traffic but Stockon could only bite a small chunk out of his margin.

Stockon came home a strong second in the Superior Tank & Trailer – Crescent Electric Supply #32 DRC/Fisher.

“We have changed a lot of things since this time last year, and it felt good to get rolling on the top and go by some really good guys. Our program doesn’t get much credit when the track goes slick, so it’s satisfying to get rolling so well when the track got black. We have seen a lot of different conditions now on this track, and seem to do pretty well with all of them,” Stockon said.

Defending champion Bacon came home third in the Hoffman Auto Racing – Mean Green #69 Triple X/Williams Mopar.

“This is exactly the type of track we’ve struggled with the most, so tonight was good to get ourselves closer and be in contention for the win. I was better than Robert early in the race and got to him, but he was way better than us at the end. I finally moved up high after Chase got by me, and I was better up there, but it was too late to get anything going. We’re happy with the progress we’ve made,” Bacon said.

Jon Stanbrough opened up his venture of starting his own team with a strong fourth-place finish aboard the MP Environmental Services – AED Motorsports Products #81 Spike/J&D, while Grant rounded out the top-five in the Mark Hery Motorsports – Dick’s Paint & Body #40 DRC/Claxton.

Bryan Clauson overcame obstacles in the heat to transfer from the Semi-Feature in the SST Motorsports #41 back-up car before going from 21st to 9th in the feature, earning the ProSource “Hard Charger Award.”

Alex Bright Repeats History From One Year Ago
Winning The Friday Night Feature
For the Florida Mini Sprints Action Feature

Bright Fri Nite Winner 

Tampa, FL……2/20/15…..The Florida Mini Sprint Action group joined the ASCS 360 Sprints as part of a double header Friday night at East Bay Raceway Park for their 39th Annual Winternationals and featured a familiar face to East Bay fans. Alex Bright, driver of the No.66 Hyper/Suzuki 750cc Todd’s Tomato’s machine won one feature here last year and pleased the crowd with great performance tonight.

After a red flag incident for Troy Wren from Bryan, Texas, who flipped in the middle of the backstretch, and was OK on lap16, when action resumed Bright still led the way over Travis Senter and Luke Thomas. However, Thomas grabbed second following a yellow on lap 22 and the restart held the cars in single-file formation and Bright won with Thomas crossing in second.

Aaron Reutzel Wins Opener For ASCS Lucas Oil 360 Sprints
At East Bay Raceway Park

Thursday Winner2 

Aaron Reutzel Spectacular in 14th Annual Laney Memorial Opener

TAMPA, Fla. (February 19, 2015) The start to the 2015 season for the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by MAVTV American Real opened with a bang as Aaron Reutzel stormed to victory on night one of the 14th annual Ronald Laney Memorial, and 17th King of the 360’s at East Bay Raceway Park.

Jumping from the top of this B.C. Funds No. 87, Reutzel paid high honors to the track crew, “What a hell of a racetrack. Wow, there are no words for that racetrack. It was just awesome up there bouncing the fence. That was unreal.”

Rolling to second on Lap 5 from 8th, Reutzel set sights on Mark Smith who grabbed the lead the previous lap from Tampa’s A.J. Maddox. Edging Smith on Lap 7, the pair went slide for slide on Lap 8; exchange the point three times before the caution waved for Chad Kemenah.

Two takes on the restart, Reutzel had to play catch up as Smith distanced himself from the No. 87. Losing ground again following a Lap 10 caution for Wayne Johnson, whose night ended after contact with the wall, the Clute, Texas driver commented on the mid-race stall, “I don’t know what happened. I knew our car was fast enough to win but it got so tight there. I don’t know if I had a tire going down or what but it took me at least five laps to get going. McCarl past me, then I started reeling McCarl back in and we were both able to get around the No. 1, but McCarl was good enough he could run anywhere he wanted so I knew he was going to be tough to beat but luckily he hit the bottom in lapped traffic and left me the top and that was all she wrote.”

The win is Aaron’s first at East Bay Raceway Park, and fifth with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour.

Crossing second, Iowa’s Terry McCarl charged from 17th in the Snowplow.com No. 24, “It was a really tricky racetrack, but that’s what we love about East Bay. It’s my favorite track down here in Florida. There are so many different variables going on. It’s a chess game out there. You know Mark got out there felling good, then the track changed and we found a spot, then that changed.”

In talking about the track surface, Terry commented that the track was similar to the night Ronald Laney won the King of the 360’s.

“I was telling the guys earlier on Racinboys, this was just like the racetrack when Ronald won this deal. He came from way back to the front and it just got really weird. I think he back up at the beginning and at the end just drove around us like we were tied to a stump.”

Battling with McCarl throughout the closing laps, Pennsylvania’s Mark Smith completed the evening’s podium.

“It was a pretty nice race. I just couldn’t get my car to turn in the center,” commented Smith. “I was really, really, good as long as it would turn but the longer I went, the tighter it got and just couldn’t get it the way I wanted but we had a hell of a race there.”

Brad Loyet from fourteenth snagged fourth with Seth Bergman completing the top-five after starting twelfth.

Johnny Herrera was the night’s Hard Charger, coming from 22nd to 6th with Jeff Swindell crossing seventh. Greg Hodnet from 20th to 8th, Matt Covington 9th from 19th, and Ohio’s Danny Smith completed the top-ten.

With 67 drivers drawing in, 9 Heat Races took place with Terry Gray, Danny Martin, Jr., Wayne Johnson, Mark Smith, Brad Loyet, Aaron Reutzel, Jeff Swindell, A.J. Maddox, and Lou Kennedy, Jr. each taking wins. Three B-Features went to Terry McCarl, Matt Kurtz, and Matt Covington. Provisionals based on owner points from 2014 where used by Tony Bruce, Jr. and Lane Whittington.

Luke Thomas Wins Opening Night In Borrowed Car
In Mini Sprints Winternationals At East Bay Raceway Park

Thomas Thursday Winner 

Tampa, FL…….2/19/15……The Florida Mini Sprint Action group brought 37 cars to the 39th Annual East Bay Winternationals celebration at East Bay Raceway Park and joined the ASCS 360 cars in bringing exciting racing to the chilled, but enthusiastic crowd with a last lap pass by Luke Thomas of Wyoming, Delaware as the leader, Alex Bright of Collegeville, Pennsylvania went high in turn two just as the “symbolic two palm trees” appeared on the fence surrounding the track indicating to the drivers that they are now in turn two and heading down the back stretch.

Thomas climbed from his “borrowed” car, the 14X of Tyler Walton, and explained to the crowd how thankful he was to Tyler Walton for offering him this car when the engine let go in hot laps of his original number 97 car that Kenny and Carol Vincent had brought for him to drive.

He thanked his crew guy Kevin who drove straight through for be with him and his finance, Kelsi, for being there to share his win with him. He admitted that he only made minor changes on this borrowed ride to make it into a “winner”.

On lap four Bright had taken the lead and had no problems until that mistake in turn two cost him first place and he had to settle for second at the finish.

David Garbo Jr Takes First

Earns First Career Super Late Victory

By Brooke Franceschini

The 18-year old Stonington, Connecticut native took home the checkered flag in the 50-lap Super Late Model feature during the seventh night of the 49th Annual  World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing. 

Garbo started the race in sixth, but quickly made his way to the front of the pack despite five cautions and one red flag. Garbo took control of the race on Lap-20 when he slipped past Garrett Jones for the lead, and never relinquished the top spot despite constant pressure from Christopher Bell and Harrison Burton, who finished second and third.

Garrett Jones, Zane Smith, Ty Majeski, Alex Labbe, Spencer Davis, Natalie Decker and Denver Foran rounded out the top-10.

Chili Bowl winner and K&N Pro Series East newcomer, Rico Abreu finished 14th.

Ryan Preece continued his dominance in the Tour Type Modifieds after winning the 35-lap feature. The 24-year-old from Berlin, Conn., is now three for five at the 2015 World Series at New Smyrna.

Preece gained control on Lap-21 after passing J.R. Bertuccio, Jr. who finished third. Chuck Hossfeld earned the second finishing spot.

Last night’s winner in the Eric John Blewett III Memorial, Eric Goodale, finished fourth and Jimmy Zacharias placed fifth.

In the Florida Modified feature, Doug Moff earned his first win of the year after passing second place finisher Kevyn Terry shortly after the green flag. Moff lead all 35-laps in the race and became the fifth winner of the Florida Modifieds in five races this week. 

Dalton Armstrong added a second consecutive Pro Late Model win in the 100-lap Pro Late Model feature Thursday night.  Armstrong led all but one lap in the race, with Austin Nason overtaking Armstrong for a single circuit. 

Racing at New Smyrna will continue Friday night, highlighted by the final 35-Lap Pro Late Model feature and the crowning of the champion in that division. On Saturday, the Super Late Model champion will be crowned after the final 100-lap feature.

Star Drivers Dominate DIRTcar Nationals Features at Volusia

Clanton untouchable in World of Outlaws Late Model race; Friesen charges to victory in Super DIRTcar Big-Block Modified main event

BARBERVILLE, Fla. — Feb. 19, 2015 — Shane Clanton has been one of the hottest drivers of this year, and Stewart Friesen was one of the top drivers last year. On Thursday night in the DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park, both of them showed why they’ve been so dominant.

Clanton jumped out to the lead in the first corner of the World of Outlaws Late Model Series 50-lap feature, survived five restarts with Don O’Neal and Jonathan Davenport breathing down his neck, and earned his second win in three nights at Volusia. Another few laps and Kent Robinson would have been right in the mix, too, as he charged from 19th to finish fourth, one spot ahead of Earl Pearson Jr.

“It feels great to know what it feels like to win a lot again,” said Clanton, of Zebulon, Ga. “It’s been a long struggle to get where we’re at, but we work hard and never give up. It shows how hard we worked over the winter to get where we’re at. This sport is grueling at times and great at others. Right now it’s just great to me.”

Friesen started third in the Super DIRTcar Big-Block Modified Series feature alongside three-time champion Matt Sheppard. Rick Laubach showed the way for four laps before Sheppard went to the bottom of the half-mile dirt oval and slid in front. Friesen poured on the pressure and quickly got to Sheppard then went to the lead. Friesen wound up getting a solid jump on a couple of late restarts and pulled away to the checkered flag.

“We had a great race car,” said Friesen, a three-time NAPA Super DIRT Week champion and Canada native living in Sprakers, N.Y. “We worked a lot of bugs out Wednesday night and learned a lot about the speedway. We were able to find that grip in the middle and snuck up there on Matt.

“When we slowed there under caution it actually helped me out because it let the tires cool off a little bit. We were real good for five or six laps at the beginning of a run but then it would push a little bit. That let my tires cool off and I got a good a run.”

Nightly doubleheaders at Volusia run through Saturday. On Friday, World of Outlaws Late Models will run a full program with a 50-lap main event while the Super DIRTcar Big-Block Modified Series runs a full program with a 30-lap feature.

Late Charge Gives Goodale Emotional Win

Passes Preece For Blewett Memorial 76 Win At New Smyrna

By Brooke Franceschini

The 24-year old Riverhead, New York native snapped Ryan Preece’s win streak when he slide past him on Turn 3 with three laps to go to win the John Blewett III Memorial 76 Wednesday night at New Smyrna Speedway.

“Last year I lost a 100 lapper to Justin Bonsignore with two to go,” said Goodale. “I pretty much did the same thing to Ryan that Justin did to me last year. I wasn’t going to let the opportunity slip by.

“I threw it in there and roughed him up a little bit, but I did what had to be done to win the race.”

Goodale, who started sixth , slowly started to creep up through the top-five halfway through the race before catching up with Preece in the closing stages.

Winning the John Blewett Memorial is extra special for Goodale and his crew.

“It’s awesome,” Goodale said. “A special thank you to my spotter Timmy (Riggleman), he spotted for John back in the day and it’s extra special for him. So I’m loving it.”

The race distance for the Tour-type Modifieds represents the No. 76 that Blewett ran throughout his career. The New Jersey driver was a frequent visitor to Victory Lane at New Smyrna and had 10 wins in 164 starts on the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour before he passed away following a racing accident in 2007.

Preece, who won two of the first three 35-lap races of the World Series, appeared set to claim another win after taking the lead on Lap 17 despite starting ninth. But he faded after the race's last caution, opening the door for Goodale.

"We just got loose," Preece said. "We'll have to figure it out and make it better for the 100-lapper (Friday) but we definitely have a really good car for tomorrow night."

Racing at New Smyrna will continue Thursday night, highlighted by a 35-lap Super Late Model feature -- the track's Division I in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series -- and a 100-lap race for the Pro Late Models. The tour-type Modifieds have a 35-lap race Thursday night before finishing with the Richie Evans 100 Friday.

The World Series is being streamed free online by FansChoice.TV powered by Speed51.com through the end of the event Saturday.

Wallace Emerges From Long Night With Win

     Fends Off Field To Win Super Late Model Finale At New Smyrna      

By Jason Christley

NEW SMYRNA, Fla. -- It took all night and 35 eventful laps, but Steve Wallace ended up in Victory Lane.

The 27-year-old son of NASCAR Hall of Famer Rusty Wallace drove a dented and torn-up Super Late Model to the win in the final feature of Wednesday night's World Series Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing action.

Wallace emerged from a battle with Harrison Burton, 14, to take the lead in the closing stages. Burton, the son of former NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Jeff Burton, was penalized for contact with Wallace on Lap 32 while battling for first.

“It’s just short track racing here," said Wallace, who won once last year en route to taking the 2014 World Series title. "We’ve been working on these cars all winter to get down here. I love Harrison and Jeff Burton. I just saw a hole and I had to go. I worked too damn hard to not go in there and rough a guy up to win.

“The car’s a little banged up. But hell we got plenty of Jet equipment to fix all the body work.”

Per track rules, Wallace got his spot back after being spun. Despite the heavy damage -- which caused sparks as he went through the turns -- he was able to pull away from Moore.

Burton wasn't the only one who tangled with Wallace. Hunter Robbins was disqualified after throwing his steering wheel at Wallace's car following an earlier race incident.

Wallace shook it all off in Victory Lane.

“I got into one guy," Wallace said, "he got pissed and threw his steering wheel at me and knocked the whole mirror out of my car. Then Harrison retaliated on me and spun me out and I got hit in the door and blew the whole body part out. When the mirror came in, it blew the master power switch out of my car. So I had to race on one hand to keep that going.

"I did everything I could to pretty much finish the race. We came out with a win and some great points for us. It’s an awesome feeling, I’m really excited.”

Ryan Moore finished second, followed by Garrett Jones, Ty Majeski and David Garbo Jr.

Natalie Decker, who will drive a Late Model for the NASCAR Drive for Diversity and Rev Racing this season, finished sixth.

He was the second Wallace to take the checkered flag on the evening. Earlier, 19-year-old Matt Wallace -- son of NASCAR national series driver Mike Wallace -- won a 35-lap Pro Late Model feature.

Because rain washed out Tuesday's card, the track moved the events to Wednesday. That meant the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Super Late Model and Pro Late Model divisions each ran twin 35-lap features.

Zane Smith won the first Super Late Model feature over Moore and Harrison Burton. Joey Mucciacciaro and Stepehen Nasse rounded out the top five, while Wallace finished sixth.

Dalton Armstrong won the first Pro Late Model race, the first asphalt Late Model win for the open-wheel dirt star from Indiana.

NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour regular Eric Goodale snapped Ryan Preece’s two-race win streak when he slide past him on Turn 3 with three laps to go to win the John Blewett III Memorial 76.

Alan Bruns won the track's 75-lap Florida Modified feature, while Eddie MacDonald closed out the American-Canadian Tour's visit with his third 100-lap win in as many tries.

Two Dirt Racing Legends Earn DIRTcar Nationals Wins at Volusia

Bloomquist dominates DIRTcar Late Models, Hearn grabs Super DIRTcar victory

BARBERVILLE, Fla. — Feb. 18, 2015 — Scott Bloomquist and Brett Hearn, two legendary dirt racers with more than 1,400 combined victories in their careers, each added to their win totals on Wednesday night at Volusia Speedway Park’s DIRTcar Nationals.

Bloomquist dominated the DIRTcar Late Model 40-lap main event, hitting his marks lap after lap in the caution-free main event, then holding off Dale McDowell down the stretch to pocket $10,000. It marked the 10th DIRTcar Nationals victory of Bloomquist’s career.

“I love this racetrack,” said Bloomquist, of Mooresburg, Tenn. “It’s so demanding and has so much character. There’s nothing like it really anywhere. It’s definitely one of my top three racetracks I love coming to. Sometimes a good car drives itself, but you got to work at this place. I love racetracks that are a challenge.”

Hearn started seventh in the feature after finishing behind Billy Pauch in his heat race. Jamie Mills led the first 20 laps of the main event before Anthony Perrego charged past and started pulling away. Hearn went to the bottom of the half-mile dirt oval and on lap 26 darted to the front and drove away to victory, the 22nd win of his career in the Sunshine State.

“You never know how these races are going to play out, I mean the track was slick right from the get go,” said Hearn, of Sussex, N.J. “Why one car gets better as the race goes on and one car slips away, sometimes you just don’t know. If you could do that all the time you’d never lose. Tonight we had a car that stayed underneath me and got better as the race went on, while other guys seemed like they backed up a little bit. The track was just unbelievably good. I mean you could drive anywhere on the track you wanted to, it was a driver’s track. And here we are. I can’t say enough about this place, it’s a blast to be here.”

Nightly doubleheaders at Volusia run through Saturday. On Thursday, World of Outlaws Late Models join the Super DIRTcar Big-Block Modifieds for the final three nights of the DIRTcar Nationals.

Austin Dillon Takes DIRTcar Nationals Gator Championship Race

Shane Clanton wins first of six Late Model events at Volusia Speedway Park

BARBERVILLE, Fla. — Feb. 16, 2015 — Austin Dillon held off his brother, Ty, on Monday night at Volusia Speedway Park to win the DIRTcar Nationals Gator Championship for UMP Modifieds.

021615 Clanton VL W 400Dillon started ninth but charged forward quickly as three-time national champion Devin Gilpin and Saturday night winner Nick Hoffman showed the way. Dillon powered to the front with Hoffman giving chase. Ty Dillon eventually swept to second ahead of Hoffman and set his sights on his brother.

A late caution set up a furious rush to the checkered flag with two laps to go. Dillon put his car on the bottom to keep his brother behind him and drive off with the victory in the 12-day event’s biggest night of racing for UMP Modifieds.

“It was on a rail, it was really fast,” said Dillon, driver of the famous black #3 car in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and grandson of legendary car owner Richard Childress. “I guess Ty got to me in lap traffic, I didn’t know he was there. But that was fun, it was a heck of a race. It’s awesome for Team Dillon Racing to go one-two, and like I said I’ve been coming down here for quite a few years now and to finally win a big Gator [trophy] feels awesome. I think that will help out for the points so maybe I will take home two. Ty’s been taking the Big Gators home, he’ll be fine until next year. That was awesome, this is a special place. Coming from ninth, man I have my head on straight. When the opportunities were there I took them. The bottom just kept coming to me. I like it down there.”

DIRTcar Late Models also invaded the DIRTcar Nationals for the first of six nights of action. Shane Clanton drove past Darrell Lanigan on lap 26 to win for the first time in his career at Volusia Speedway Park. Tim McCreadie wound up third.

“This feels real good, it’s one of those things has eluded me for a long time,” said Clanton, of Zebulon, Ga. “We’ve run good down here, just haven’t had Lady Luck on our side. Right now everything’s clicking. I knew I had a good racecar early in the race and was just biding my time and just saving my tires as long as I could. When it was time to go, I went.”

Nightly doubleheaders at Volusia run Tuesday through Saturday. On Tuesday night, DIRTcar UMP Modifieds wrap up their portion of the DIRTcar Nationals with Triple 20s as the DIRTcar Late Models return for a full program on the second of six consecutive nights.

Kasey Kahne Racing Dominates Sprint Week Finale

Sweet wins, Pittman claims crown; Austin Dillon charges to UMP Mod victory

021615 Dillon VL2 350BARBERVILLE, Fla. — Feb. 15, 2015 — Kasey Kahne Racing dominated the final night of Sprint Car Week on Sunday at Volusia Speedway Park, with Brad Sweet taking the World of Outlaws feature and Daryn Pittman earning the overall championship.

Afterward, Austin Dillon, who spent the day qualifying for the Daytona 500, charged from ninth to victory to win the final DIRTcar UMP Modified qualifying race for Monday’s Gator Championship event.

In the final race of the week for the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars at this year’s edition of the DIRTcar Nationals, Paul McMahan jumped out to a quick lead before being challenged by Sweet, who started fifth. Sweet grabbed the lead on lap 7 before McMahan swiped it back a lap later. McMahan tried to stretch his advantage but in the caution-free race he hit heavy traffic with Sweet closing fast. Sweet surged to the lead with seven laps to go and held off McMahan for his first win of the season.

“I was a little mad at myself because I passed him and then I let him pass me back, so I thought I gave it away because then I showed him the bottom and he was able to kind of get going,” said Sweet, of Grass Valley, Calif. “It’s just one little mistake, the grease kept coming back in three and four and then it would go away for a few laps and then come back. So it was just searching down there to try to figure it out, but my guys gave me a great car. We were knocking on the door all weekend so it’s nice to end it on a high note. Really nice to come out and start the season this strong for KKR as a whole, and especially our team.”

Pittman finished third, and combined with his two victories earlier in the week, was crowned the DIRTcar Nationals Sprint Week champion for the second time in three years. He used the momentum from winning the last one to propel his team to its first overall World of Outlaws championship in 2013.

“That’s a tough trophy to win and this is a tough track to come and start your season out on,” said Pittman, a native of Owasso, Okla. “We had our annual goals meeting on the way down here via text on what our goals were this week and they were pretty lofty and we almost got there. It was to win three Gators and the big one. And we got three within the company of KKR, two of them ourselves and the big one. It was a great week all the way around. We just put ourselves in position every night to get a good finish. Pretty disappointed with our finish last night but it was a good rebound for tonight.”

In the UMP Modified main event, Ken Schrader set the early pace but Dillon was pushing hard from his ninth starting position. He eventually swept past Schrader to grab the lead and pull away to the checkered flag, giving him his second Gator trophy of the week and a prime spot for Monday’s Gator Championship showcase for UMP Modifieds.

“I just made a pool, so hopefully it will swim in it later,” said Dillon, the grandson of legendary car owner Richard Childress and driver of the famous #3 NASCAR Sprint Cup car. “That was fun. I want to thank my Team Dillon Racing guys. I got wrecked in that heat race and I wasn’t happy about it, as you can tell by the way I was driving. Trying to get up through there, when you get inverted to fourth it’s hard in eight laps to get back to the lead. I’m just proud of these guys. It’s been a fun weekend already. Had a good qualifying day over there at Daytona. Hit the wall in the Unlimited, so hopefully the rest of the week can keep going like this.”

Nightly doubleheaders at Volusia run Monday through Saturday. On Monday night, DIRTcar UMP Modifieds will compete in their DIRTcar Nationals showcase Gator Championship while DIRTcar Late Models kick off the final week of action at the half-mile dirt oval.

Richards Claims Milestone 50th World of Outlaws Late Model Series Victory With First Series Triumph Of 2015 At Bubba Raceway Park

Three-Time WoO LMS Champion Tops Clanton & McCreadie To Claim Final Night Of Fourth Annual Bubba Army Winter Nationals

By Joshua Joiner, WoO LMS PR Director

OCALA, Fla. - Feb. 15, 2015 - Josh Richards' long wait for his 50th career World of Outlaws Late Model Series victory is finally over.

More than 15 months after wrapping up his third WoO LMS championship with his 49th series victory in the tour's 2013 season finale, Richards of Shinnston, W.Va., topped a back-and-forth battle with Tim McCreadie of Watertown, N.Y., midway through Sunday's Bubba Army Winter Nationals finale and pulled away from Shane Clanton of Zebulon, Ga., during the race's closing laps to claim a $10,175 triumph at Bubba Raceway Park.

The 26-year-old Richards reached the 50-win milestone with his first WoO LMS victory since sitting out all but two series events in 2014 due to nerve issues in his hands. The momentous accomplishment was extra sweet for a driver who just a few months ago was faced with the potential of never racing again.

"This feels awesome," said Richards, who drove his Valvoline-sponsored Rocket Chassis house car to his third-career WoO LMS victory at Bubba Raceway Park. "There was a time that I thought I was going to end my career on 49 wins when I didn't think I was ever gonna get to race again. To get to 50 really means a lot. I'm happy just to be back racing, but it really feels good to be back and winning races."

Clanton chased Richards through the race's final 10 laps before settling for his second consecutive runner-up finish. McCreadie dropped to third at the checkereds after leading laps 27-34. Steve Casebolt of Richmond, Ind., continued his solid start to the season with a fourth-place finish while Morgan Bagley of Longview, Texas, charged from his 13th starting spot to finish fifth in a race slowed by four cautions.

The victory didn't come easy for Richards. He moved from third to second on the race's initial start and quickly began pressuring second-starting Darrell Lanigan for the lead. Richards made an inside run on Lanigan down the back straightaway on lap two and overtook his fellow three-time WoO LMS champion through turns three and four.

But the quick charge came at a price: while passing Lanigan, Richards made contact with one of the tires lining the inside of the racetrack, bending the nose of his blue No. 1 machine in a way that hampered his steering for the remaining 48 laps.

"It was a handful out there," Richards said. "I never knew what it was gonna do getting into the corner, so I had to make sure I kept the car turned on the right-rear the whole race. It was a handful, but it was fun."

McCreadie added to Richards' problems when he began to make his bid for the lead just before the race's halfway point.

Using a line different from Richards' high-side attack, McCreadie first looked under Richards on lap 25 and pulled even with the leader on the next circuit. McCreadie and Richards ran side-by-side down the back straightaway on lap 27 and made slight contact as they dove into turn three still nearly even.

McCreadie pulled ahead exiting the corner, but he never could drive away. Lapped traffic became an issue just a few laps later, and Richards took advantage. As McCreadie attempted to use the top groove to overtake a slower machine on lap 35, Richards remained in the bottom line and raced back out front.

Richards never looked back, crossing the finish line with a lead of 1.030 seconds in earning his third overall victory of the season.

"When you're leading, you don't really know where you need to be," said Richards, whose previous 2015 victories came in non-series races at Screven Motor Speedway in Sylvania, Ga., on Feb. 6 and at Eastbay Raceway Park in Gibsonton, Fla., on Feb. 11. "I felt OK up top, but I knew I was pushing a lot off of two.

"I knew someone had to be coming on the bottom, but you don't want to change your line and give up the lead that way. Once he passed me, I slowed down around the bottom and we were a lot better."

Clanton drove his Weldbank Energy-sponsored Capital Race Car by McCreadie for second on lap 41 and set about cutting into Richards' lead. But he began to lose ground after a few laps and settled into the runner-up spot.

The 39-year-old veteran finished second for the second straight night, adding to his lead atop the WoO LMS points standings. With four top-five finishes in four events this season, Clanton heads to Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, Fla., for the DIRTcar Nationals with a 16-point lead in the championship chase.

"We were just a little bit tight there and Josh was a little bit better through three and four than I was," Clanton said. "Overall a good night and we've got something to work with at Volusia."

McCreadie's third-place effort turned around a sluggish start to the season for his Sweeteners Plus race team.

"We just got too tight the last 15 laps or so," said McCreadie, who rebounded from a 23rd-place finish in Saturday's WoO LMS A-Main with his first top-five finish of the season. "That happens, but where we were to where we are is a big difference, so we're excited to go to Volusia."

Along with the back-and-forth battles up front, Sunday's race also produced a number of hard charges, highlighted by a run from 21st to sixth by Billy Ogle Jr. of Knoxville, Tenn. Chub Frank of Bear Lake, Pa., notched his fourth top 10 of the season with his charge from 15th to seventh, while Brandon Sheppard of New Berlin, Ill., advanced from 14th to eighth.

Frank Heckenast Jr. of Frankfort, Ill., followed his first career WoO LMS victory during Saturday's A-Main with a ninth-place performance on Sunday night, while fast qualifier Don O'Neal of Martinsville, Ind., rounded out the top 10 after running as high as third early in the event.

The first of the race's four cautions appeared when Eric Wells of Hazard, Ky., spun in turn one on lap five; a mid-pack scuffle on the ensuing restart left Stormy Scott of Las Cruces, N.M., stalled against the back straightaway to cause the second yellow flag; a lap-17 caution appeared when Brandon Overton of Evans, Ga., slowed from the sixth spot after making contact with an infield tire; and Lanigan of Union, Ky., suffered the same fate on lap 38 in causing the race's final caution.

Action moves to Volusia Speedway Park on Monday for the first of six straight nights of racing during the DIRTcar Nationals. The first three nights consist of DIRTcar UMP-sanctioned programs, while Thursday through Saturday feature separate $10,000-to-win WoO LMS events.

Schatz Motors to World of Outlaws Win at DIRTcar Nationals

Hoffman captures Volusia’s first Gator Championship qualifier

021415 Schatz VL 600x400

021415 Hoffman VL1 300

 BARBERVILLE, Fla. — Feb. 14, 2015 — After narrowly missing out on victories the previous two nights, World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion Donny Schatz left no doubt who was in charge on Saturday at Volusia Speedway Park’s DIRTcar Nationals, sweeping to the lead on lap eight and driving to his first victory of the season.

Then, in the first qualifying night for Monday’s Gator Championship, Nick Hoffman became the fifth different DIRTcar UMP Modified winner of the week, getting the jump on Kyle Strickler after a caution-filled start to the main event.

Schatz, who drives a car owned by three-time NASCAR champion Tony Stewart and finished second to Daryn Pittman two nights in a row, changed the engine in his car before the main event, and the new 900-horsepower motor was more than enough to carry him to victory ahead of former series champions Danny Lasoski and Steve Kinser.

 “We broke a valve spring in the dash with two laps to go and we did break a valve spring last night,” said Schatz, a six-time World of Outlaws champion from Fargo, N.D. “We could have taken the chance to run the engine, probably could have had a DNF, you never know. These guys decided to change it. They do a phenomenal job. They got us out for the feature. Like I said, it wasn’t pretty. We needed to make some adjustments, we just didn’t have the time. So the car wasn’t the greatest but it managed to get a win, I’m happy about it. I was really wanting a Gator [trophy].”

Hoffman had been on the podium at Volusia all but one night in the first week of action, but on Saturday night he broke through for a win with a dominating performance, holding off Kyle Strickler and Ty Dillon in the qualifying race to put himself in a prime position for Monday night’s $5,000-to-win special event for UMP Modifieds.

“The track was in my favor tonight, starting on the pole,” said Hoffman, of Mooresville, N.C. “I think the plan is take every one of these Gators back to North Carolina between me and Kyle and the Dillon boys.

“I’ve won here on the bottom and it’s been good, and that’s just what I did tonight, held it right on the bottom, make sure to hit the moisture, and that’s all she wrote. It all comes down to the pill draw. I’ve won the Gator from seventh before so it can be done from further back, but it’s going to be tough with the guys we’ve been running against, and the Dillons being so tough.”

Nightly doubleheaders at Volusia run Saturday through Feb. 21. On Saturday night the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series continues its high-powered, high-speed action along with the DIRTcar UMP Modifieds.

Heckenast Overcomes Challengers To Claim First World of Outlaws Late Model Series Victory In Saturday's Bubba Army Winter Nationals A-Main

Second-Year WoO LMS Competitor Outduels Veterans Clanton & Frank In Dramatic 50-Lapper At Bubba Raceway Park

By Joshua Joiner, WoO LMS PR Director

OCALA, Fla. - Feb. 14, 2015 - Frank Heckenast Jr. refused to be denied again.

The second-year national traveler nearly saw another chance at his breakthrough World of Outlaws Late Model Series victory slip through his fingers Saturday night at Bubba Raceway Park when Shane Clanton snuck by him late in the 3/8-mile oval's 50-lap race. But instead of settling for another near-miss, Heckenast, 26, of Frankfort, Ill., dug deep and willed himself back to the lead one lap later.

The 2014 WoO LMS Rookie of the Year held off both Clanton of Zebulon, Ga., and hard-charging Josh Richards of Shinnston, W.Va., through the race's final eight laps to earn $10,550 for his first career WoO LMS victory during the second round of the Bubba Army Winter Nationals.

"When Shane passed me, reality started to set in and I told myself I wasn't letting another one get taken from me," said Heckenast, who joined Steve Casebolt of Richmond, Ind., as the second first-time WoO LMS winner this season. "That next lap I just got up on the wheel and settled down and didn't get all flustered. I got beside him and drag-raced him off the corner and got ahead of him. I just did my best to drive a straight race the rest of the way."

Heckenast's Club 29 Race Car crossed the finish line 0.766 seconds ahead of Clanton's Capital Race Cars house car. Richards was third after catching the top two cars late in the race only for his Rocket Chassis house car to slip over the cushion just after edging ahead of Clanton for second on lap 48.

Defending series champion Darrell Lanigan of Union, Ky., recovered from an early spin in his Club 29 house car to finish fourth, while the Longhorn Chassis of early leader Chub Frank of Bear Lake, Pa., rounded out the top five in a dramatic race that featured five lead changes and side-by-side racing near the front throughout its entirety.

For Heckenast, the hard-fought victory cements his status as a bonafide WoO LMS contender. After a seventh-place points finish on last year's WoO LMS, Saturday's strong performance now has Heckenast aiming much higher during his sophomore season.

"I feel like we belong here now," said Heckenast, whose No. 99JR machine carries sponsorship from St. Louis U-Pic-A-Part and Storage Squares. "Last year the rookie thing was beating me up pretty bad and I didn't have a whole lot of confidence. But in the second half of the year we were getting better and better and really just started putting everything together.

"I knew we could win a race this year, but I didn't want to have to wait until November to see if we could do it. Now that we've got it out of the way, I feel like we can win even more and have a really good chance at a good points finish this year."

The race was intense from the very beginning for Heckenast, who quickly charged forward from his fifth starting spot to challenge the teammates of Frank and Boom Briggs of Bear Lake, Pa., in a tight three-car battle through the race's early laps. Heckenast first edged into the lead at the completion of lap six, but he couldn't quite clear the veteran Frank, who was looking to end his nearly six-year WoO LMS winless streak.

Frank roared back ahead on lap eight and only narrowly held command with Heckenast and Briggs on his heels before a lap-11 caution slowed the lead battle. Heckenast took advantage of the restart, pulling alongside Frank through turns one and two on lap 12 before finally clearing him for the lead on lap 13.

Heckenast maintained a slight advantage through the race's middle portions while Clanton and Richards made their way forward. Richards took the second spot from Frank on lap 27 with Clanton following into third on the next lap. After overtaking Richards for second on lap 36, Clanton began to cut away at Heckenast's nearly straightaway advantage.

With Heckenast struggling in traffic, Clanton began to challenge for the lead by lap 40 and pulled ahead with a low-side pass in turns one and two on lap 41. A slight misstep by Clanton in turns three and four on the same lap allowed Heckenast to pull back alongside. He completed the winning move with a bottom-line pass of his own on lap 42.

Heckenast's bold recovery denied Clanton his second straight WoO LMS victory after he snapped his 66-race winless streak with a dramatic triumph of his own during the tour's Feb. 7 event at Screven Motor Speedway in Sylvania, Ga. The runner-up performance continues Clanton's return to form following a dismal 2014 campaign that saw the WoO LMS veteran go winless on the tour for the first time since the series was restarted in 2004.

"I thought I was going to (win)," said Clanton, who took over the series points lead and is the only driver to finish among the top five in all three of this season's WoO LMS A-Mains. "I just messed up in three and four and Frankie's car was good enough to take advantage of my misfortune. But overall a good night. We started seventh, and to get to second was pretty good.

"We got our ducks in a row right now. Hopefully we can keep them in a row and get a good points lead here. We're optimistic for a good year."

Polesitter Brandon Overton of Evans, Ga., was never a factor after jumping the cushion on the race's opening lap. But he recovered to score a sixth-place finish, continuing his solid start to the season that saw the regional standout finish among the top three of both WoO LMS A-Mains at Screven.

Morgan Bagley of Longview, Texas, advanced from his 18th starting spot to finish seventh, while Briggs faded back to eighth after running among the top three through the race's first 20 laps. Chase Junghans of Manhattan, Kan., finished ninth and rookie competitor Jordan Yaggy of Rochester, Minn., notched his first career WoO LMS top-10 finish in the 10th position.

The race was slowed by two cautions with the first appearing for Lanigan's spin on lap four. Tim McCreadie of Watertown, N.Y., slowed to cause the final caution with 11 laps complete.

The fourth annual Bubba Army Winter Nationals conclude on Sunday with another $10,000-to-win WoO LMS program. Action gets underway with hot laps at 5 p.m. followed by a complete slate of time trials, heat races, B-mains and another 50-lap A-Main.

World Series at New Smyrna Race Recap
Night 2 - 2/14/15The 49th annual World Series

Ty Majeski in victory lane after super late model win

by Dave Westerman

The 49th annual World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing continued on a
Valentine's day Saturday night with a big six feature program on another
unseasonably cold Florida evening.

Things got very hot though during practice as something happened to Jordan
Ives' Super Late Model going into turn three and he smashed into the wall.
Ives' car burst into flame but he emerged unhurt before fire totally engulfed
his machine and the track surface as well. Track crews got the huge fireball
under control quickly saving possible damage to the track. Ives' car was
completely destroyed.

The big event of the night was the season-opener for the Joey Coulter Florida
Pro Truck Series. Port Charlotte's Michael Burns, who won the tune-up race
for the Trucks on night one, set fast time at 20.240 seconds while defending
Truck Series champion Becca Monopoli was second quick at 20.294.
With the top five in qualifying inverted for the green flag, Rodney Haddock
had the pole position with Kody Jett to his outside. Jett grabbed the early
advantage and led the first three laps before Whitney Poole and Eddie
Lichtenberger locked horns sending Poole into the inside wall on the back
stretch. Both were able to continue.

On the restart it was Monopoli moving to the lead bringing Burns with her.
Burns wasted little time in taking over and he made the pass on lap seven.
Burns was pulling away when the second yellow flag of the race came out on lap
31 as Vance Hall spun in turn two. Danny Anderson, who started ninth, moved
to third spot on the restart and began to challenge Monopoli for second just
before Poole and Brian Lynch. Jr. crashed hard on the front stretch. Both
drivers were OK but done for the night.

The rest of the race ran under green flag conditions as Burns simply left the
field in his wake to sweep the weekend. Monopoli came home in second place
ahead of Anderson. Fourth went to Blake Haddock who just held off J. R.
Garcia III at the checker. Completing the top ten were Jett, Rodney Haddock,
Eddie Lichtenberger, Dean Butrum and Robert Strader, Jr.

The Super Late Models were close in qualifying after Zane Smith's lap of
17.335 was disallowed due to soaked tires. Fast time then went to Canadian
Martin Latulippe at 17.505 seconds, just a bit quicker than Ty Majeski who
came in with a lap of 17.517. Third in qualifying was the 17.550 lap of
Harrison Burton.

The top ten qualifiers were inverted and that put Garrett Jones of
Mooresville, NC on the pole with Roscoe, Illinois driver Austin Nason to his
outside. Nason zipped out to an early advantage while fast-timer Latulippe
got very loose on the opening lap and went high in turn four losing several
spots. On lap three, something happened to Harrison Burton's car going down
the back stretch and he spun in turn three. Before the smoke cleared the cars
of Ryan Moore, Stephen Nasse, Drew Brannon, Gus Dean, David Rogers and Josh
Collins were involved in one way or the other. Burton, Moore and Brannon were
done for the night.

Jones moved to the lead on the restart but only one lap could be completed
before Tyler Dippel, Anthony Sergi, Spencer Davis and Brandon Oakley crashed
in turn two. Only Davis could continue. Jones continued to lead after the
restart as David Garbo, Jr. moved his "Flying Lobster" into second as the
field settled into some green flag racing until Nasse's car stalled in turn
two on lap 17 to bring out the yellow.

Garbo drew alongside Jones on the restart but had to give way to a high-flying
Ty Majeski who took second on lap 20. Majeski quickly reeled in Jones only to
see caution fly on lap 21 as Latulippe spun off turn four in a big cloud of
smoke. Jones again set the pace as the field went back under green but
Majeski was not to be denied as he moved in for a great side-by-side duel with
Jones. Fast qualifier Latulippe retired from the race on lap 28 while Majeski
finally made the pass for the point on lap 29. The Wisconsin native sped away
to a big win, his first-ever at New Smyrna Speedway.

Jones held on for second over Paul Shafer, Jr. who had his second straight
top-three finish. Joey Mucciacciaro took fourth followed by Steve Wallace.
Bobby Wilberg was sixth while 16-year-old Natalie Decker had a super run for
seventh after starting next to last in the huge field. Rounding out the top
ten were Austin Nason, Garbo and Zane Smith who started dead last after his
qualifying DQ.

Chuck Hossfield topped the Tour-Type Modified field in time trials for the
second consecutive night turning in a lap of 17.037 seconds. Second quick was
Ryan Preece at 17.060 ahead of the 17.200 lap of Kevin Goodale. The first six
in qualifying were inverted for the start with J. R. Bertuccio starting from
the pole and night one winner Justin Bonsignore outside of him.

Bertuccio took the early advantage and led the first five circuits before
Bonsignore moved him out of the way and led a train of cars to the front.
Bonsignore led just two laps before Preece zipped by and took over the top
position while Bertuccio was all the way back in seventh.

Mike Bolona spun on lap 16 to bring out the first caution of the event then
Goodale tapped the wall on the restart, slowed and pitted but did not bring
out the yellow flag. The caution did fly a second time on lap 21 as Kirk
Totten spun in turn two. At this time third-running Spencer Davis came on pit
road and retired with a rear end leak.

Preece drove away on the restart as Hossfield moved to second on lap 27 but
was well behind Preece at this point. However Paul Hortwig. Jr. spun in turn
two on the 29th lap giving Hossfield his shot at Preece. Brendon Bock spun
just after the restart to keep the yellow out. Preece held off Hossfield to
the finish as he had the stronger car at the end plus was able to pass tech
after being disqualified from his apparent win on night one.

Hossfield claimed the second spot while Bertuccio rebounded for third spot
passing Bonsignore with two laps left. Jimmy Zacharias came home in fifth
trailed by Dalton Baldwin, Danny Watts, Brendon Bock, Dillon Koptec and
Hortwig, Jr.

For the second night in a row, Tyler Thomas of Collinsville, OK and his Tim
Russell Driver Development car set fast time for the PPG Architectural
Coatings Pro Late Models at 18.162 seconds, just a tick of the watch quicker
than the 18.171 lap turned in by Michael Lira of Port Orange and Spencer
Davis, who toured the half-mile third fast at 18.181.

The top ten in time trials were inverted for the start of the 35-lap feature
putting Thomas' TRD teammate Sheldon Creed on the pole but it was outside pole
man Todd Stone who grabbed the initial advantage. As the field started the
second lap, Tim Sargent tapped Matt Wallace into a spin with Wallace backing
hard into the turn two wall. Both cars kept going and came to pit road but
neither could continue.

Stone continued to set the pace as night one winner Derek Scott, Jr. nearly
lost it on lap five coming down the front stretch before gathering it in,
losing a few spots in the process. Spencer Davis moved into second at this
point and began to press Stone for the lead eventually taking over the top
spot on lap nine. Caution flew on lap 12 as Chuck Tuck spun into the turn two
wall although he was able to continue. At this point several drivers were
reporting fluid on the track and the field was brought down pit road for a
leak check. The car of Erica Thiering was found to have a hole in the
radiator while fluid was also found coming from Scott Reeves' machine.

On the restart Thomas moved into second and closed on Davis but after a few
laps Davis began to pull away once again. Lap 28 saw Bert Longin spin in turn
one for the final yellow flag of the race. On the restart Thomas dove under
Davis and took the lead but it only lasted for three circuits before Davis
used a banzai move in turn three to re-claim the point. Davis led the rest of
the way to take the win and this night his car passed tech with flying
colors.

Thomas came home in second trailed by Stone, Creed and Lira. Sixth through
tenth were Ryan Miles, Dalton Armstrong, Fredrick Moore, Chuck Tuck and Larry
Gelinas.

Kevyn Terry of Citra set quick time for the Florida/IMCA Modifieds with a lap
of 18.447 seconds topping second-quick Jerry "The Hammer" Symons who tripped
the clocks at 18.499. Tank Tucker, night one winner Tim Moore and Camron Ray
were third through fifth in qualifying.

The top six in time trials were inverted for the start with veteran Jimmy
Britts of Orange Park on the pole flanked by Ray. Ray jumped out to the early
lead as the young driver from Homosassa was looking good. Lap ten saw the
first caution for an Alan Bruns spin in turn four.

Ray led the way again on the restart but the yellow flag was back out on lap
13 as something broke on Britts' car and he slammed the back stretch wall with
Bruns spinning to miss him. Britts was done for the night. On the restart
Tank Tucker zoomed past Ray for the lead just before Moore looped his mount
coming off turn four to bring out caution number three. Moore continued at
the back of the field.

Symons moved into second on the restart and took the lead from Tucker two laps
later. Things remained under green until lap 29 when Rob Cooper slapped the
front stretch wall twice before slowly taking his car to pit road. On the
restart, Bruns spun again in turn two but, before the yellow could be
displayed, the top three cars of Symons, Tucker and Terry tangled and crashed
on the back stretch. Symons and Tucker were done for the evening while Terry
pitted and continued.

Ray now found himself back in front but the restart would see Matt Wheeler
spin in turn one to bring the caution back out. Ray got the jump on the final
restart and drove like a veteran over the final six circuits to hold on for
the biggest win of his career having just moved into the Modified cars just a
few months ago. Moore put on the pressure but had to settle for second on
this night while Doug Moff came from ninth on the grid to finish third.
Fourth went to Robert Deal while Terry came back for fifth. Rounding out the
top ten were Bruns, Wheeler, Shain Held, Symons and Tucker.

The Mini Stocks saw Robbie Yoakam of Inverness set fast time at 20.666 seconds
with "Mr. Mini Stock" Ted Vulpius of Mims second quick at 20.882. The field
started straight up with Yoakam taking the lead at the onset only to be slowed
by three early cautions as Rick Sirmans had problems getting his car to keep
running and stalled on three occasions. Reid Christensen retired his car
after an early bout with the concrete as well.

Once the race finally got going, Vulpius moved to the point and led the next
24 laps before Yoakam reeled him back in and re-passed for the lead on lap 29.
Yoakam ran off and hid from that point as he won by a half straight over
Vulpius and James Ellis. Fourth went to Shawn Cater followed by Steven
Simpson, Sirmans and Christiensen.

Billy Moyer Dominates the East Bay Winternationals Finale

Moyer Saturday Winner 

TAMPA, FL (February 14, 2015) – Billy Moyer picked up his third victory of the week in the 39th Annual East Bay Winternationals on Saturday Night. Moyer pulled away late to win for the 26th time in his Hall-of-Fame career at East Bay Raceway Park. Moyer survived a side-by-side tussle with Jimmy Owens to take the win in the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series sanctioned event.

Defending LOLMDS National Champion, Don O’Neal, finished second, followed by Jonathan Davenport, Owens, and Jared Landers.

Owens led the first 28 laps of the 50 lap main event with Moyer following closely the entire time. The two had a fierce battle for the lead for several laps until Moyer was able to forge ahead. O’Neal, Davenport, and Owens had a closely contested battle for second as Moyer pulled away.

“First off, I have to thank my crew. We broke a rear end on the car on our second lap of qualifying. As quickly as they move the show along here, if we were in the first heat, I don’t think we would have been able to make it out,” said the winner, who made the call in time to keep his pole-starting spot in the second heat race.

“We are always prepared, we had a spare rear end ready to go. We had my crew and Billy Jr.’s crew there all helping. The track was the best it’s been all week. All of us drivers could run anywhere on it. They watered the top more today, and I think that helped me. I could get up there and get some traction,” said the 57-year-old in Lucas Oil Victory Lane.

“Jimmy and I had a heck of a race. I mean we were running hard and didn’t touch. It just shows you that you can race hard and clean and not tear up everybody’s equipment. The way the track was tonight, you could bounce through a hole and hit somebody, but that didn’t happen. The track had a lot of character in it, and we’re happy to come home with the win.”

Moyer’s Longhorn Chassis is powered by a Clements Racing Engine and sponsored by Henderson Motorsports, Sunoco, Red Line Oil, Royal Jones, Messilla Valley Transportation, Garnant Family Farms, and Watters Auto Land.

O’Neal, in the Clint Bowyer Racing, Barry Wright Chassis was real happy with his finish. “We haven’t been that good this week, but the crew worked hard on this car, Lance, Barry, Jeremy, and Tony did a great job. Billy was just better than all of us tonight. I want to thank Peak Antifreeze and Motor Oil, Crawford Supply, and Georgia Boot.”

Davenport, who won the LOLMDS event last Saturday Night at Golden Isles had his best East Bay finish of the week with a third place. “We kind of got shuffled back on that one restart, but I was able to get the car to work up top better. I ran down Jimmy and Don. I thought I could get Don on the last lap, but we couldn’t quite make the pass. The track was real racy tonight. I have to thank Kevin and LeRoy Rumley, Longhorn Chassis, TS Crane Service, Sundance Flowback and Mega Plumbing of the Carolinas.”

Completing the top ten were Mike Benedum, Tim Dohm, Devin Moran, Steve Francis and Eddie Carrier Jr.

In preliminary action, Tim Dohm set the overall Miller Welders Fast Time (Group A) amongst the 35 entrants, with a lap of 15.103 seconds. Scott Bloomquist set the fastest time in Group B with a time of 15.368 seconds. Tim Dohm, Billy Moyer, Jimmy Owens and Earl Pearson Jr. won their respective heat races. Stormy Scott and Dan Stone won their respective B-Mains.

JOSH SUNN WINS A WILD NIGHT #2 OF GATOR DIRT NATIONALS

By Zach Tasker

Night number 2 of 3 for the inaugural Gator Dirt Nationals at the North Florida Speedway in Lake City, Florida lived up to its billing as a race on Friday the 13th. That can only explain the craziness that occurred in the 20 lap feature. The race started out as a fairly straightforward affair as pole sitter Dillon Buhr led the field to the green fresh off of his Thursday night feature win. Alongside the 2014 Southern States Midget Series Rookie of the year would be Lucas Oil Powri Outlaw Midget Series competitor Josh Sunn.

The race was highly attrition filled as defending SSMS champion Darrin Davis saw his engine expire on lap one. After a couple of early race yellow flags the race started to develop a rhythm. Adam Pierson had taken the lead early on and was looking to sweep the night after winning his heat race and the race of champions. The Vermont native would hold a steady lead until he hit heavy lapped traffic, and then Anthony Nocella would rocket by him using the lapped cars as a pick to perfection. The Seymour Racing driver was looking to bounce back after a rough opening night on Thursday that saw him get tangled up in a lap one turn one crash thus ending his night. After thrashing and repairing the car for Fridays event, it looked as if Nocella would go from zero to hero in a span of 24 hours. He had built up a comfortable lead on Pierson until when two laps to go coming off of turn four heartbreak struck again as the Woburn, Massachusetts drivers car grinded to a halt on the front stretch as his Focus powerplant gave up the ghost.

This would lead to the nights first attempt at a green-white-checkered finish. Josh Sunn pounced on leader Pierson right on the get-go and took the lead. However, this topsy-turvy race was yet to be completed as a 3rd place Daniel Robinson dove into turn 3 with one lap to go while running third and pushing hard to make a move on the two leaders. Robinson lost control and spun in the middle of the track leaving nowhere to go for Dillon Buhr as he piled hard into the side of the #0 machine. Both drivers were ok, but a red flag was displayed for cleanup.

This lead to another restart that again went yellow with one lap to go due to the stalled machine of Frank Malec. On the third and final attempt at a Green-White-Checkered finish, Josh Sunn scooted away ahead of his teammate and won by a half of a car length over Pierson. The White River, Vermont driver was overjoyed in victory lane. “I just found something on the bottom and then I knew he (Pierson) was going to get me on top the last restart, so I kind of stayed up there a little bit but me and him we race back in Vermont back and forth and we have so much respect for each other I knew we were going to give each other room so it's awesome. Frank Manafort, he's the man; he's the best car owner in the world. He does everything, Brad Noffsinger, Matty, everybody that came and helped me out, it's just amazing. Both cars go so good and it’s the best feeling. I never thought I would come to Florida and win a race; I didn’t win a race last year and it's just amazing!”

The driver of the #76 Blackwatch Farms/Brad Noffsinger Racing Acadamy/BMRS Brown & Miller Racing Solutions Spike/Focus relished the chance to be able to race for the win with a teammate. “We are like brothers together, I really wanted to get a win and 1-2 for Frank and its an awesome feeling.”

Runner-up Adam Pierson in the #76 Blackwatch Farms/Brad Noffsinger Racing Acadamy/BMRS Brown & Miller Racing Solutions Spike/Focus was just one spot away from sweeping the night, but still has three wins on the weekend (Thursday heat race win, Friday heat race and race of champions win). “The cars were a little too tight tonight, we tightened them up way too much, it was really tight in the center, but that was one heck of a race for first. If I'm going to finish 2nd that’s how to do it. Especially against my teammate, he knew that I was going to go for it that last lap because that was the end of the race when I did it the first time but then they went back after the yellow so he knew that I was probably going to do the same thing again. That’s racing so we will do it again tomorrow, that’s great to have a 1-2.”

The East Corinth, Vermont native knew he would have had to work for it to get back past Nocella before he broke. “I mean I thought I was going to be good, I was like ok he's not here. I know the 24 is coming , I know my teammate is coming somewhere and I just got caught in traffic but its too bad that he blew up or had problems because that would have been a good race at the end too if I could have caught him and we could have went and battled for the lead. If he was going that good he should have deserved that win, it's just too bad. The lapped traffic is a little hairy, because you don’t know where they are going to go sometimes and one guy goes high and you try to go low and he cuts down low but that’s racing.”

Rounding out the podium with a strong run was Scott Holcomb out of North Granby, Connecticut. The driver of the #47 Brignole-Bush-Lewis Attornies at Law/Roarke Tree Farm Hawk/Quad 4 just stayed cool the whole 20 laps and let the positions come to him. “It was good, a couple cars got tangled up there at the end and I almost got involved in that one but we got around it. The little Quad 4’s that we are running were down on horsepower without a doubt. I think we got all we could get out of that car tonight, I really do. It’s a great little track, it's fast, a nice racy place for a midget. I'm sure it's good to watch.”

In the special six lap Race of Champions dash, Pierson would pick up the win by a comfortable margin. Heat races were won by Pierson, Dillon Buhr, who made up multiple positions on the race start and Josh Sunn, who passed Scott Anderson late for the win.

The third and final night of the Gator Dirt Nationals is Saturday February 14. A full show of practice, heat races, dashes and a special 33 lap feature as a salute to the late Patrick Wilda Jr is on tap. Grandstands open at 5pm with practice at 5pm and racing at 6pm.

Burton Outlasts Shafer in SLM Opener
at New Smyrna WS

One year ago, Harrison Burton captured the biggest win of his career to date in a 100-lap Pro Late Model race at New Smyrna Speedway (FL).  In his continuous climb up the ranks, the teenage phenom became a first time Super Late Model winner in Friday’s opening night 35-lap feature at the 49th Annual World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing.

“It means the world to me,” Burton said on the FansChoice.TV powered by Speed51.com broadcast.  “I can’t thank the guys at the shop enough.  They work hard all the time.”

Gus Dean and Paul Shafer Jr. ended up on the front row after a 10 car invert with Shafer getting the initial jump on what turned out to be multiple occasions in front of the strong turnout of 35 cars.  Things would slow immediately a couple times with the second caution resulting in two multi-car pileups at once.  Among the damaged were top competitors Garrett Jones, Anthony Sergi, Scott Heckert, Daniel Keene Jr., and David Rogers.

For Rogers, a New Smyrna stalwart and champion, the nine day marathon started off on a low note with a poor qualifying run and became worse right away.

“Just a lot of cars down there, it’s the first night, the track is cold, and slick,” Rogers said.  “You’ve got a lot of guys racing with you that don’t know you and you don’t know them so there will be a lot of rough racing to start with, but I think it will get better as time goes on.  We’re going to have to go to work and get better too.”

Up front, it was a banner night for the next generation in racing as drivers not even old enough to vote battled hard for the top spot on the podium.  As the race entered the second half, Burton began to patiently hound Shafer before beginning to bang doors to the inside for the top spot with 10 laps to go.

“I had so much fun racing (Shafer),” said the son of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series veteran turned announcer Jeff Burton.  “I can’t thank the competitors enough for racing me clean.”

Shafer, who was competing at the half-mile for the first time, was ecstatic with the runner-up finish and enjoyed the tough battle with Burton.

“For a few laps there I thought I could hold him down for a little bit,” the Portage, Indiana youngster explained.  “I pinched him on a few lapped cars, but I gave him all I had.  He just had a little bit better car and outdrove me, just by a little bit.”

Teenagers Spencer Davis, Tyler Dippel, and Austin Nason followed the front two across the stripe.  The Davis car was later disqualified for being too light in post-race technical inspection.

In the first of the battles leading up to next Saturday’s Second Annual Bruce Gowland Memorial Super Late Model 100, uncharacteristically missing from the front of the field were past champions Steve Wallace and Ryan Moore who were only able to accomplish finishes of ninth and 11th, respectively.  Additionally, multi-time winner Stephen Nasse started at the rear after a practice crash and pulled behind the wall early.

A few started off on the right foot while many will have a big hole to dig out of as the Super Late Models return for another 35 lapper on Saturday night before taking two days off.

RESULTS FOR 2-13

021415 DCN Day 4 Graphic

It was the second DIRTcar Nationals win in a row for the Kasey Kahne Racing with Mike Curb driver

BARBERVILLE, Fla. - Feb. 13, 2015 - Daryn Pittman took the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series season opener Friday night with an epic last lap pass of the reigning series champion Donny Schatz.

Just a lap sooner the feature win was in Schatz's sights as he approached the lapped car of Kraig Kinser. Schatz dove low in turns three and four to make the pass but was not able to make the line stick. As he exited the turn his Bad Boy Buggies car drifted up the track and over the cushion.

Pittman saw his opportunity.

"When I saw him slide and have to bail out I thought wow, that guy doesn't make very many mistakes and that was a pretty good one," Pittman said. "We had to take advantage of that."

Pittman was able to pull his Great Clips car side-by-side with Schatz as the two closed in on the white flag. Pittman won the drag race down the frontstretch and entered turn one on the final lap in the lead. Meanwhile, Schatz dove to the bottom of turns one and two and tried to slide Pittman onto the backstretch.

"[I] saw visions of last night in turn two again as [Schatz] threw a Hail Mary there to try to get by me," Pittman said.

Again though Schatz was not able to make the move stick and Pittman pulled away, scoring the first win of the 2015 season. Tonight's win was the second in row for Pittman in the midst of sprint week at DIRTcar Nationals after he won the UNOH All Star Circuit of Champions feature on Thursday night.

"Last night felt pretty good - this one feels that much better," Pittman said. "Last night it felt like we had a great racecar, probably the car to beat from the time we unloaded. We were good all night tonight. At the beginning of that race I just didn't feel as good and thought, man, we're probably going to run top-three. The car got better as the race went on and came to us."

"Hats off to this whole Great Clips team… I'm really blessed to be part of this Kasey Kahne Racing team. It's a lot of fun to be able to get in and drive this car every night."

Schatz, who had a similar run the night before in the All Stars feature, said afterward that something did not feel right with his car in the final lap in Friday night's event.

"I thought it broke on the last lap there going into three - something happened but there doesn't seem to be anything wrong," Schatz said. "So I don't know if I smothered it in fuel or what happened. That was a good race. I wish we would have won it but we didn't."

"It's good to be able to race up there for wins. That's what we want to do. Great night for the Bad Boy guys. They've done a tremendous job."

Kerry Madsen opened the night by driving his American Racing Custom Wheels car to the quicktime in qualifying with a lap of 12.792. Greg Hodnett picked up the Dash win and the A main pole, with Joey Saldana on his outside.

When the green flag dropped on the feature, Hodnett jumped out to an early lead. Saldana pressed down on him though through the first three laps and as the two turned lap five, Saldana caught Hodnett and passed him coming out of turn four.

Saldana built up a sizable lead on the field through the next 15 laps while Schatz worked his way forward from a sixth place starting position. By the first caution on lap seven, Schatz had moved into the fourth spot. Nine laps later Schatz began closing in on Pittman, then in third. He completed the pass on lap 21 as the two came off of turn two.

Three laps later Schatz cleared Saldana for the lead as Saldana slipped back. Pittman and Hodnett took over the second and third place positions in the final laps.

Hodnett, who has one sprint week win with the All Stars and led the first five laps of the night, finished the feature in third.

"These guys are the best in the world, they prove it every night," Hodnett said. "We just got beat. We made a lot of mistakes and it cost us a couple of positions, obviously. But we're pretty proud to be close. Last year we were here we just weren't even close. The guys work really hard throughout the year and the off-season, and hopefully the fruits of that labor are coming to fruition right now."

Dillon slips past Strickler late, Pittman wins on last lap pass

BARBERVILLE, Fla. — Feb. 13, 2015 — Ty Dillon swept to the lead just as the white flag was displayed Friday night at Volusia Speedway Park’s DIRTcar Nationals to win a thriller for his first UMP Modified victory of the season.

Ty Dillon joins his brother, Austin, as winners this week at Volusia. It certainly wasn’t easy. Kyle Strickler had the lead but traffic came into play. Dillon went high, Nick Hoffman went low. Hoffman wound up taking second, dropping Strickler to third.

“I’ve been working hard for this,” said Dillon, a rising NASCAR star and the grandson of legendary car owner Richard Childress. “It’s just so cool all the North Carolina guys come down here and run so well. I knew Kyle was going to be tough to pass and I kind of had to slide across him there. I saw up on the board there was only 3 to go so I knew I had to make something happen. I’m proud of my guys, we’ve been coming down here for a long time. Volusia’s like a second home for us, coming to race at. I’m just so happy for everybody. This is so much fun. Got my Gator this year, man. I’m happy and proud of all my guys for all the hard work.”

Nightly doubleheaders at Volusia run Saturday through Feb. 21. On Saturday night the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series continues its high-powered, high-speed action along with the DIRTcar UMP Modifieds.

RESULTS FOR 2-13

OcalaFridayUMP Lanigan copy

By Joshua Joiner, WoO LMS PR Director

OCALA, Fla. - Feb. 13, 2015 - Turning around his sluggish start to the season, Darrell Lanigan of Union, Ky., topped a late duel with Josh Richards of Shinnston, W.Va., during Friday's DIRTcar UMP-sanctioned A-Main at Bubba Raceway Park to earn a $5,000 victory during the opening night of the fourth annual Bubba Army Winter Nationals.

Lanigan, the three-time and defending World of Outlaws Late Model Series champion, rallied after losing the lead to Richards on lap 20 of the 30-lapper and retook command when Richards struggled with traffic on lap 26. The 44-year-old Lanigan pulled away through the race's final four laps, earning his seventh career victory at the 3/8-mile, egg-shaped oval.

Winning the caution-free race was a much-improved performance for Lanigan, who began his quest for a record fourth WoO LMS title with subpar finishes of eighth and 11th during the national tour's season-opening doubleheader Feb. 6-7 at Screven Motor Speedway in Sylvania, Ga. He'll look to keep his Cornett-powered Club 29 Race Car up front on Saturday and Sunday as the Bubba Army Winter Nationals continue with a pair of $10,000-to-win WoO LMS programs.

"We went to Screven and struggled hard and went home and regrouped," Lanigan said of his disappointing performances at Screven's Winter Freeze V. "Instead of sitting down here in a parking lot for three days, we went home and got our notes together and did our homework. We went through everything and just made sure it was all was 100 percent before we came back."

Richards, also a three-time WoO LMS champion, settled for the runner-up finish, crossing the finish line, 1.170 seconds behind Lanigan in the Rocket Chassis house car. Chub Frank of Bear Lake, Pa., drove his Longhorn Chassis from eighth to third, while Morgan Bagley's Black Diamond by Club 29 machine slid back to fourth after leading the race's first 17 laps. Brandon Overton of Evans, Ga., rounded out the top five in his MasterSbilt by Huey car.

The first half of the race belonged to Bagley. After charging from third to first on the opening lap, the Longview, Texas, driver dominated the first half of the race while pulling to nearly a straightaway advantage before traffic slowed his pace. The fifth-starting Lanigan was looking under Bagley by lap 17 and used a high-side charge through turns one and two to jump to the lead on lap 18 while Bagley remained pinned behind a slower machine.

Lanigan had his own struggles with traffic a few laps later, allowing the high-running Richards to sweep by him on lap 20 with another top-side run through turns one and two. Richards appeared headed for his third victory in his first six races of the season before his own problems in traffic allowed Lanigan to retake command with yet another high-side pass in turns one and two on lap 26.

"He got by me when I got in a bad position, but then he got himself in a bad position with a lapped car," Lanigan said of the battle with his WoO LMS rival Richards. "I think we both had pretty good cars. It just depended on who got through lapped traffic the best."

Richards' runner-up finish was a recovery from a dismal start to the race that saw the 26-year-old racer drop from the outside pole to sixth in the race's first three laps. He recovered to enter the lead battle by halfway, but traffic didn't play in his favor.

"We did what we could," said Richards, who owns a pair of WoO LMS victories at Bubba Raceway Park. "We had a really good car, but the way lapped traffic played out we just let one get away from us."

Polesitter Boom Briggs of Bear Lake, Pa., slid back to the sixth spot at the finish, while Shane Clanton of Zebulon, Ga., finished seventh after running as high as third. Tim McCreadie of Watertown, N.Y., charged from the 24th starting spot to finish eighth with Mark Whitener of Middleburg, Fla., and Rick Eckert of York, Pa., rounding out the top 10.

The Bubba Army Winter Nationals continue Saturday with the first of two $10,000-to-win World of Outlaws Late Model Series events. The three-race weekend concludes Sunday. Hot laps on Saturday begin at 6 p.m., while Sunday's program gets rolling at 5 p.m. More information is available at www.bubbaracewaypark.com.

RESULTS FOR 2-13

Eddie Carrier Jr Wins Exciting Winternationals
Friday Event at East Bay Raceway Park

Carrier Fri Night Winner

TAMPA, FL (February 13, 2015) – Eddie Carrier Jr. driving the Optima Batteries #28 won an exciting battle with Devin Moran in Friday Night’s $10,000-to-win main event at East Bay Raceway Park. Carrier held the lead on lap 31, quickly lost it again on the next circuit and used a lapped car to his advantage as he snuck by Moran once again on lap 44.Carrier would led the remaining 6 laps and wind up in victory lane in the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series-sanctioned event. Following Carrier and Moran at the finish were Jimmy Owens, Jared Landers, and Jonathan Davenport.

“That was a great race,” exclaimed Carrier in Lucas Oil Victory Lane for the second time in his career at East Bay. “The track crew did a great job, they moved the tires out in the corners, and we drivers didn’t know what to think, but it worked out real well. It was nice of Devin to let one of us old guys win tonight,” Carrier jokingly said.

“We had to diamond off the corners to get a run down the straight-aways. Both Devin and I had trouble with a lapped car. I used the outside line to get by him coming off of turn four. He saw what I did and used the same line to get by him. I was fortunate enough to find enough room coming off of turn two to get the lead back.”

“I want to thank my car owner, Carl Grover. He gave me the chance several years ago to drive his cars, and it has been the best thing to ever happen to me other than marrying my wife, Jamie. I have to thank Engines Inc, Optima Batteries, Sunoco Race Fuels and all of my sponsors, my crew, and especially my dad [Eddie Carrier Sr.] for all he does. He works his tail off every day on this car.”

Moran, the 20-year-old son of Hall-of-Fame driver, Donnie Moran equaled his best East Bay finish. Ironically in the last year’s Winternationals opener it was Carrier who denied Moran his first career victory at “The Clay by the Bay.”

Earl Pearson Jr. led the first 23 laps of the race, until contact with a car he was lapping dropped him several spots in the running order. Moran pounced on the opportunity to take the lead.

“Congratulations to Eddie for the win, he deserved it. He was better than me. I hate it for Earl. He was really fast tonight. I just couldn’t get by that lapped car. I could have moved him out of the way, but I don’t drive like that. I was too patient with him. But we will take second after the week we have had. I would like to thank my sponsors, Donnie Moran Driving School, Eddie’s Sunoco, and Performance Bodies, and MasterSbilt Race Cars for all of their assistance.”

Owens; the 3-time LOLMDS National Champion; had his best points finish of the young season. “Our car rolled around the top early on, and we were passing cars. No doubt it’s the best we have run all week. I think I used up the edges of the tires getting to the front, and from then on I couldn’t stay with Eddie and Devin,” said the driver of the Rowland Racing, Widow Wax Car Care Products, Club 29 Ford.

Completing the top ten were Brandon Sheppard, Mason Zeigler, Bobby Pierce, Steve Francis, and Dan Stone.

In preliminary action, Dan Stone set the overall Miller Welders Fast Time (Group A) amongst the 41 entrants, with a lap of 15.481 seconds. Eddie Carrier Jr. set the fastest time in Group B with a time of 15.838 seconds. Scott Bloomquist, Earl Pearson Jr., Jared Landers and Devin Moran won their respective heat races. Billy Moyer Jr. and Tim Dohm won their respective B-Mains.

Billy Moyer Wins Make-Up Winternationals Event
at East Bay Raceway Park

Moyer Make Up Monday Race 

TAMPA, FL (February 13, 2015) – Billy Moyer took the lead at the start of tonight’s 25-lap Monday Make-Up Winternationals event at East Bay Raceway Park and never looked back. Brandon Sheppard closed the gap in the second half of the race, and challenged Moyer on several occasions, but could never quite pull even with the veteran from Batesville, Arkansas. Following Moyer and Sheppard to the finish were Billy Moyer Jr., Gregg Satterlee, and Devin Moran.

“We just missed the set-up in that first race tonight; we had just enough time to make some adjustments for this race. We won that first heat so that put us on the pole. The car was really good. I had a little bit of a push getting into turn two, but otherwise, the car was not a handful like the previous nights. I was hoping maybe Jr. could get up there so we could take first and second.”

“I have so many people to thank; Messilla Valley Transportation, Henderson Motorsports, Watters Auto Land, Clements Engines, Longhorn Chassis, and everybody else who helps us. Of course, Stevie Norris, he has been with me a long-time and the rest of the crew. We have had a good couple of weeks, and we hope to end the week on a strong note.”

Sheppard continued his strong Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Georgia-Florida Speedweeks with his runner-up finish. “Ever since we unloaded last Thursday at Golden Isles this car has been strong. If not for some bad luck we could have had a win or two. To finish second to Billy Moyer tonight is awesome. He is one of the best ever. I want to thank Kid’s Castle Learning Center, Valvoline, Pro Power Engines, and Rocket Chassis for all of their help.”

Moyer Jr. came home third in his Crop Production Services, Messilla Valley Transportation, Longhorn had his best finish of the Georgia-Florida Speedweeks. “I really wanted that second spot tonight. I raced Brandon hard and I have a lot of respect for him and his family. We can build on this and get ready for the Saturday Night finale.”

Rounding out the Top Ten were Stormy Scott, Jonathan Davenport, Jared Landers, Tim Dohm, and Mason Zeigler.

In preliminary action, Dennis Erb Jr. set the overall Miller Welders Fast Time (Group A) amongst the 33 entrants, with a lap of 15.983 seconds. Brandon Sheppard set the fastest time in Group B with a time of 15.984 seconds. Billy Moyer, Billy Moyer Jr., Brandon Sheppard, Gregg Satterlee won their respective heat races. Davey Johnson won the B-Main.

DILLON BUHR SCORES NIGHT #1 WIN
AT GATOR DIRT NATIONALS

DILLON BUHR SCORES NIGHT #1 WIN AT GATOR DIRT NATIONALS    
                By Zach Tasker

    The first night of the 2015 Gator Dirt Nationals at the North Florida Speedway in Lake City, Florida had an upset winner as Dillon Buhr held off all the northern invaders and made sure that at least for one night the trophy stayed in the home state of the Southern States Midget Series.  Buhr started on the outside of the front row for the 20 lap feature. He got the jump on pole sitter Adam Pierson and held control for the rest of the race. There were multiple late-race restarts where he had to hold off the 2014 USAC DMA and Lucas Oil Powri Outlaw Midget Series champion Pierson. The Jacksonville native also made some dramatic passes through lapped traffic to take his biggest career win.

    “We started on the outside pole with a 21 car field and I led from the start. I thought he was going to hang with me on the inside for a while because the track was so slick, but we were able to run out front for most of the time. We had a couple of cautions, and then the car started cutting out a little bit in the last five laps, but we had some lapped traffic and got by them pretty easily. We had a lapped car at the end that hit the wall, and them came across the track and I about creamed him going into turn 3 coming to the checkered flag. I just told myself to hold on; if I hit him I hit him. I was already committed to the line, as soon as I set it into the corner I saw him come across, and I thought oh my god.

The first night of the 2015 Gator Dirt Nationals at the North Florida Speedway in Lake City, Florida had an upset winner as Dillon Buhr held off all the northern invaders and made sure that at least for one night the trophy stayed in the home state of the Southern States Midget Series. Buhr started on the outside of the front row for the 20 lap feature. He got the jump on pole sitter Adam Pierson and held control for the rest of the race. There were multiple late-race restarts where he had to hold off the 2014 USAC DMA and Lucas Oil Powri Outlaw Midget Series champion Pierson. The Jacksonville native also made some dramatic passes through lapped traffic to take his biggest career win.

“We started on the outside pole with a 21 car field and I led from the start. I thought he was going to hang with me on the inside for a while because the track was so slick, but we were able to run out front for most of the time. We had a couple of cautions, and then the car started cutting out a little bit in the last five laps, but we had some lapped traffic and got by them pretty easily. We had a lapped car at the end that hit the wall, and them came across the track and I about creamed him going into turn 3 coming to the checkered flag. I just told myself to hold on; if I hit him I hit him. I was already committed to the line, as soon as I set it into the corner I saw him come across, and I thought oh my god. "

The driver of the #24 Super Shox/MWR/Atlantic Powder Coating/Denton Motorsports Eagle/Ecotec is hoping to capitalize on this win for the next two nights of racing. “It feels great. I thought that coming off of winning the heat race was an accomplishment in itself with these guys down here but a feature, I couldn't ask for more than this right here. I hope we can continue this tomorrow night and Saturday night. ”

2nd place Adam Pierson tried to throw the kitchen sink at Buhr the last few laps but couldn’t mount a challenge to try to get a run on him. “Every time we would restart he just would get me on that jump. The way our motors are with the cam, it just doesn't come off the corner like that one would. I was trying to time it right so I could keep the motor up and keep with him but he just jumped me every time. I think we were pretty even except he was getting me from the center off the corner but for the first time being here coming from Vermont I'll take it a second spot is definitely a good starting spot for this weekend.”

The driver of the ‪#‎76m‬ Blackwatch Farms/Brad Noffsinger Racing Academy/BMRS Brown & Miller Racing Solutions Spike/Focus out of East Corinth, Vermont thinks just some small tweaks will put him in the front tomorrow night. “We just need to do a little research on the tires and the rear suspension stuff to make it not dig so hard and not wear the tire out basically.”

Rounding out the podium was the #7 Ellis/Ecotec driven by Seth Carlson out of Brimfield, Massachusetts. The winner of a 2014 NEMA midget race at Oswego Speedway was surprised by his pace. “We are still new to this, we haven’t been to many tracks and I haven't been driving dirt for that long. We got the car going pretty good for the feature, and hopefully we will get it better for tomorrow. We were right there, I was trying a couple of different lines to see if I could reel them in at the end and I fell back a little bit but with a couple of adjustments on the car I think we will be alright. “

A strong field of 21 D2 midgets from across the nation were on hand at the 3/8 mile dirt oval. Pierson, Buhr and Josh Sunn were heat race winners. Racing continues on Friday night with a full show including the special invitational race of champions and the Gator Dirt Nationals finale on Saturday.

Pittman held off a charging Donnie Schatz the final four laps following a caution to score his nine career University of Northwestern Ohio All Star Circuit of Champions victory. Pittman’s victory was by .078 seconds. Schatz, who started 15th, had the crowd on their feet the final handful of laps as he continuously challenged for the win.

“If you didn’t enjoy that don’t bother even coming back because that’s about as good as it gets,” said Pittman beside his Kasey Kahn/Mike Curb owned machine.

“This is pretty special. I have a good buddy of mine back in Brownsburg, Indiana named Ben that’s battling some illness right now and I gave him the one gator that I had this winter. And my wife Mandy said ‘you know your daughter loves that, it’s a pretty special trophy…the first one you got here.’ I said ‘you know what I have five chances to come down here and win one of these.’ My daughter watched it on TV and she’s upset that she’s not here in victory lane. She recognizes this place as the gator race track. So this is going back to here,” added Pittman beside his Great Clips/Sage Fruit/Team ASE/Curb Records/Factory Kahne backed #9.

“I have to thank my guys. Kale (Kahne)…I didn’t believe him…he kept telling me to run around the top down there (in turns one and two) and I’m thinking ‘I don’t know if that’s a good idea or not.’ Just stuck with it and I’m glad we stuck with our line and won it that way. Hats off to Donny (Schatz). He raced me clean. He could have definitely ate me up there on the back stretch,” concluded Pittman. “Hats off to the entire team, Giggles (Josh Heidcamp, Willie (Kahne) and Kolten (Gouse). This is a big win to get the year started off right.

Schatz put on the show though from his 15th starting position in his Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Motorsports, Bad Boy Buggies machine.

“I have a great race team…these guys do a phenomenal job. It was a good enough race car to win, I just gave it everything I had…I just probably didn’t use up enough race track there. It’s fun to be able to race two wide and race clean and battle to the checkers and give the fans a great race,” said Schatz, the defending World of Outlaws champion.

In the second third of the race it looked like Brad Sweet might power to the victory. But, the Grassvalley, California driver could not chase down his teammate and Schatz.

“I probably burned my tire up there a little bit but I can’t really complain. It was a great race and a great race track. Daryn and Donnie had a pretty good battle up there…probably two of the best in the business,” said Sweet beside his Ollie’s Bargain Outlet/Avantage Health/Sage Fruit/Team ASE/Curb Records/Factory Kahne Shocks backed #49.

“My guys are working really hard on we’re gaining on it. I really appreciate Mike Carber, Austin Wenrich, Red Cat (Rob Beattie), Ty Sipes and Justin Adams…we have a pretty good crew here. It was good to come out here and run good as we start our season tomorrow,” added Sweet.

Pittman and Danny Lasoski would bring the field to green for the fifth UNOH All Star feature of 2015. Pittman would drive into the lead over Lasoski, Kerry Madsen, Lucas Wolfe, the previous night’s winner Greg Hodnett and Sweet.

Lasoski would slip up the track on lap four allowing Madsen to drive into second as the leaders found the back of the pack by lap six. By lap 10 Pittman was in heavy lapped traffic as Sweet powered into second utilizing the extreme high line while Madsen, Lasoski and Hodnett gave chase.

At the half-way point Sweet was closing rapidly on Pittman and drove around the leader to take the point as they crossed the start-finish line on lap 17. However, Pittman would drive the bottom grove in turns one and two to regain the lead.

The first caution would fly on lap 22 with Pittman leading Sweet, Madsen, Lasoski, Hodnett and a closing Schatz who was working the bottom line to perfection. On the restart Schatz would drive under three cars to take third.

Another caution would fly on lap 23 and the crowed was eagerly anticipating the restart to see if Schatz could take the lead. When the race resumed Schatz would blast under Sweet for second and drove right to the rear bumper of Pittman. But, the caution would fly on lap 25 for Wolfe who had a flat tire and would retire from the race.

When the green flew again Pittman had his hands full with Schatz as Sweet and Madsen battled for third but Lasoski would experience problems and spin to bring out the final caution with just four laps to go.

Pittman would not budge from his high line in turns one and two on the restart and Schatz pulled beside him. But, Pittman’s momentum would keep him in the lead. The lead duo would race nose to tail over the next three laps.

When they exited turn four coming to the finish, Schatz gave it one final try and came up just a fraction of a second short.

Behind Pittman, Schatz and Sweet were Hodnett, Madsen, Joey Saldana, David Gravel, Cody Darrah, Jason Sides and Terry McCarl.

The New UNOH All Star Circuit of Champions will begin their battle for the $100,000 point fund on March 28 at Atomic Speedway in Chillicothe, Ohio.

Stremme captures Volusia Speedway Park victory
in UMP Modified

David Stremme, who also competes in NASCAR, started on the outside of the front row for the UMP Modified feature and charged to the front and stayed there, winning for the first time at Volusia Speedway Park. Austin Dillon, Hoffman and Ty Dillon ran a similar line trying to run down Stremme but to no avail. Strickler, who won on Wednesday night at Volusia, came from 19th to round out the top five in what might have been the most impressive run in the UMP Modified event.

“First and foremost we had a really great starting spot,” Stremme said. “It was really hard to pass and I was screwing up there. I haven’t raced without the spoilers. It’s a little different. We had to tune our car a little bit different but it was fun. It was slick, that’s how I like it. I knew Austin and those guys were there, they are tough. I’ve watched them year after down here. Same with Nick and Kyle and Kenny Wallace and Schrader and all them guys. It’s really Kenny Wallace’s fault that I got into this dirt racing but I love it ... I think I got barely 50 dirt races under my belt in four years so it’s really hard to come down here and win this. It’s pretty big.”

Billy Moyer Marches into Victory Lane
Thursday Night at East Bay Raceway Park

Moyer Thurs Nite Winner 

TAMPA, FL (February 12, 2015) – Billy Moyer took the lead on lap 6 and never looked back as he marched on to his 24th Winternationals win Thursday night at East Bay Raceway Park. Billy Moyer and Brandon Sheppard battled back and forth for several laps until Moyer finally mastered a consistent line around the famed “Clay by the Bay” and set-sail on his way to victory lane. Following Moyer to the stripe were Mike Benedum, Brandon Sheppard, Steve Casebolt, and Dennis Franklin. “It feels good to get back to victory lane at East Bay, They went out and worked on the track after the B-mains, and it turned out pretty much how I thought it would. We have led every night down here, and we were finally able to get the finish we wanted. I want to thank my crew for all of their hard work.”

Sheppard led the first lap, but Moyer charged by him for the lead on the second circuit. Sheppard then fought back to regain the point by lap five as the duo raced side-by-side around the 1/3rd mile clay oval. Moyer finally forged ahead of Sheppard on lap 6 and distanced himself from Sheppard.
Benedum; in his best career run in a LOLMDS event would make it a three-car battle for the lead. Moyer entered heavy traffic by lap 18, and Moyer maneuvered his way through lap-traffic until a caution came out on lap 25 that cleared the way. Benedum got the jump on Sheppard as he pounced on the second spot during the ensuing restart. Moyer darted away from the field and maintained a safe distance the rest of the race to take his first victory of the season, and the 791st of his Hall of Fame career.

“I want to thank all of my sponsors; there are a bunch of them; Henderson Motorsports, Garnant Family Farms, Messilla Valley Transportation, Karl Performance, Clements Racing Engines, Longhorn Chassis, and everyone else who helps with our race team.”
Benedum was extremely happy with his finish and was overwhelmed with emotion in victory lane. “To run with guys like Moyer, O’Neal, Owens, and those guys, I am tickled to death. We have switched back-and-forth between the Rocket and Longhorn in the last two weeks. We had the Rocket out here tonight. I can’t thank my crew enough; they have worked so hard on the car. This is just unbelievable.”
Completing the top ten were; Bobby Pierce, Jared Landers, Stormy Scott, Jimmy Owens, and David Fieber.

In preliminary action, Billy Moyer Jr. set the overall Miller Welders Fast Time (Group A) amongst the 44 entrants, with a lap of 15.797 seconds. Brandon Sheppard set the fastest time in Group B with a time of 16.036 seconds. Billy Moyer Jr., Don O’Neal, Brandon Sheppard and Billy Moyer won their respective heat races. Vic Hill and Dennis Franklin won their respective B-Mains.

GREG HODNETT POWERS TO UNOH ALL STAR WIN AT VOLUSIA SPEEDWAY PARKGREG HODNETT POWERS TO UNOH ALL STAR WIN AT VOLUSIA SPEEDWAY PARKGREG HODNETT POWERS TO UNOH ALL STAR WIN AT VOLUSIA SPEEDWAY PARK

BARBERVILLE, FL. (Wednesday, Feb. 11, 2015) – Greg Hodnett has served noticed. His Mike Heffner team will be a force to be reckoned with in 2015.

The Thomasville, Pennsylvania driver was able to maneuver through traffic and led all 30 laps at Volusia Speedway Park to claim the University of Northwestern Ohio All Star Circuit of Champions victory.

Hodnett’s victory stops a three race win streak for Kerry Madsen.

It was the 81st appearance of Tony Stewart’s New All Star Circuit of Champions at Volusia Speedway Park for the DIRTcar Nationals. For Hodnett it was his 19th career series victory and the second All Star win at Volusia for the driver of the Lelands.com/Eagle Steel/Trone Outdoor machine.

“We qualified well and got a great run in the dash to put us up front and that helped tremendously. The guys gave me a perfect race car. There were times in traffic where I was hand over hand…it was a handful on the cushion at times,” said Hodnett.

“We are working with a new Triple X chassis this year and tried some things and it worked and I got one of these gator trophies,” added Hodnett.

Danny Lasoski, who set the fastest lap in qualifications, took second from Paul McMahan on lap 23 but couldn’t catch Hodnett in traffic.

“I have to thank Todd Quiring for giving me this opportunity. It’s great to be back with Guy Forbrook and I’m extremely excited for the season,” said Lasoski, who leads all drivers with 16 career All Stars wins at Volusia.

“I spun my wheels on the start and that’s what cost me. You can’t give someone like Greg that kind of an advantage,” added Lasoski.

Brad Sweet would drive his Kasey Kahne Racing entry into third on lap 23 after having started seventh on the racy half mile.

“We missed it a little in time trials and you just can’t do that with the level of talent we have here. It was a great first night for our Ollie’s Bargain Outlets, Avantage health, Sage Fruit, Team ASE car,” said Sweet.

“My hands and arms hurt. I have to get in racing shape but I had a lot of fun tonight and can’t wait until tomorrow,” added Sweet.

Hodnett and Lasoski would bring the field to green for their 30 lap main event but eighth place starter Joey Saldana would spin coming out of turn four, with most of the field narrowly missing “The Brownsburg Bullet.

Donny Schatz and Dave Blaney would also get together in turn one and a red was brought out so that crews could separate the two machines.

When the green came back out, Hodnett set sail as McMahan, Lasoski, Kerry Madsen, Sweet and Dale Blaney gave chase.

The caution flew on lap two when Cody Darrah and Lucas Wolfe spun in turn two. When the race resumed it would go to the end without stoppage.

Hodnett would pull away to a commanding lead while the action for second was heating up between McMahan, Lasoski and Madsen. Hodnett would race into traffic by the 10th circuit.

Hodnett would patiently pick off the lapped cars as McMahan and Lasoski were unable to make up any ground.

With 10 laps to go Hodnett continued to work through traffic as once again McMahan, Lasoski and now Sweet tried to hunt him down. On lap 23 McMahan tried to drive under a lapped car and slid up the track allowing Lasoski and Sweet to get by.

Hodnett would drive to the win over Lasoski, Sweet, McMahan, Madsen, Daryn Pittman (up from 13th), David Gravel (up from 15th), Blaney, Jason Johnson (up from 14th) and Jason Sides would round out the top 10.

Strickler fends off Ty Dillon for UMP Modified win
at Volusia Speedway Park

Kyle Strickler powered through a clean but wild UMP Modified main event, riding the cushion as Ty Dillon applied the pressure. A late caution bunched everybody together but Strickler, of Mooresville, N.C., had a strong restart to keep Ty Dillon behind him. Austin Dillon, who won on Tuesday night, advanced four spots to finish third ahead of hard charger Nick Hoffman, who improved 10 spots.

“That cushion was getting a little rough up there, lapped traffic, that was getting a little crazy,” Strickler said. “I wasn’t sure how close the Dillon boys were there. Those guys, they’ve had rocket ships last night and tonight. I knew they would be coming and if I could pick and choose my way through lapped traffic that was going to help me. Starting up front definitely was very important. If I could get to that cushion I was going to have a good restart because I got some of that moisture off of four here and got to the top.”

Nightly doubleheaders at Volusia run Thursday through Saturday, Feb. 21. Thursday night’s action once again features Tony Stewart’s UNOH All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars and DIRTcar UMP Modifieds.

Josh Richards Rockets to Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Win
at East Bay Raceway Park

Richards Wed Winner 

TAMPA, FL (February 11, 2015) – Josh Richards took the lead from Billy Moyer on lap 17 and raced on to take the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win Wednesday Night at East Bay Raceway Park. It was Richards’ fourth career win at “The Clay by the Bay.” Florida native Mark Whitener had his best career LOLMDS finish by taking second ahead of 25th starting, Steve Francis, Don O’Neal, and Billy Moyer.

Richards started third and rocketed to the lead on the opening lap of the 35-lap event. He led until Moyer passed him for the top spot on lap eight. Moyer then held the advantage over Richards for several laps as the two drivers swapped the lead. Richards retook the lead with 19 laps remaining and never looked back.

“We had a really good car all night. It was tough sitting out most of last year; it makes you appreciate this sport even more. We have always run well here at East Bay. I want to thank all of my crew, my dad, and Steve Baker as well. I also have to thank our sponsors Valvoline, Seubert Calf Ranches, Ace Metal Works, Ernie D’s, Petroff Towing, Durham Racing Engines, and of course Rocket Chassis.”

“The track was weird like last night. The heats and B-mains were really good. Our car ran better up top in three and four and we had to get down low going into one. These hard tires take some time getting used to. You have to have momentum and be smooth on them. I think the track did a great job with the track.”

Whitener was extremely happy with his runner-up finish. “To run second in a Lucas Oil race is just terrific, these guys are the best-of-the-best. I don’t really have a whole lot of experience on open motor racing, but we proved as a team we have what it takes to run up front. I have to thank Dave’s Towing, Miller Lite, and Barry Wright Race Cars.”

Francis broke a rocker arm before his heat race and took a fast time provisional starting spot. Francis would roar from the last row to finish third. “Our car has been fast the last two times out. If we can beat the gremlins, we are going to win some races here soon. I want to thank Clint Bowyer, Georgia Boot and Crawford Supply, and all of our other sponsors for their help.”

Completing the top ten were Brandon Sheppard, Tim Dohm, Devin Moran, Earl Pearson Jr., and Jason Papich.

In preliminary action, Tim Dohm set the overall Miller Welders Fast Time (Group A) amongst the 43 entrants, with a lap of 14.663 seconds. Steve Francis set the fastest time in Group B with a time of 14.844 seconds. Billy Moyer, Dennis Erb Jr., Devin Moran and Josh Richards won their respective heat races. Jason Papich and Don O’Neal won their respective B-Mains. Dan Stone won the DirtonDirt.com Strawberry Dash.

Austin Dillon Charges to Victory
in Volusia Speedway Park Opener

NASCAR star holds back Hoffman, brother Ty, to kick off DIRTcar Nationals

BARBERVILLE, Fla. — Feb. 10, 2015 — NASCAR superstar Austin Dillon held off North Carolina’s Nick Hoffman on a green-white-checkered finish to win Tuesday night’s DIRTcar Nationals UMP Modified opener at Volusia Speedway Park.

Dillon built a big advantage from the pole as Hoffman and Dillon’s brother, Ty, surged forward. A late caution bunched the field, giving Hoffman and Ty Dillon one last shot at victory, but Austin Dillon executed a perfect restart and Hoffman wound up settling for second with Ty Dillon in third.

“It’s a great start to our week, it always has been,” said Dillon, who drives for his legendary grandfather Richard Childress in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. “I love coming here. It definitely gets your confidence up when you come out the first night and win one. We have a long week ahead of us and hopefully I can get some more wins. I just hope it’s not like when you go fishing and you catch one on the first cast.”

Jake Hawkins was fourth and Kenny Wallace charged 10 spots to round out the top five.

In other action Tuesday at Volusia, Dave Blaney, the 1995 World of Outlaws champion who has been racing in NASCAR the past two decades, turned the quickest lap of the night in 12.724 seconds at more than 140 mph during sprint car open practice around the half-mile dirt oval.

Nightly doubleheaders at Volusia run Wednesday through Saturday, Feb. 21. Wednesday night’s action features Tony Stewart’s UNOH All Star Circuit of Champions sprint car series joining the DIRTcar UMP Modifieds.

Dave Blaney Leads Practice on
Night One of DIRTcar Nationals
 

021115 DCN Practice Graphic

Practice kicks off sprint week, Feb. 11 to 15, at Volusia Speedway Park in the midst of DIRTcar Nationals 

BARBERVILLE, Fla. - Feb. 10, 2015 - Dave Blaney kicked off sprint week at Volusia Speedway Park on Tuesday night as he took the top spot in DIRTcar Nationals sprint car open practice.

Blaney, the 1995 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion, set the fast time in his Heinke Baldwin Racing car during the second hot laps session with a lap of 12.724 at more than 141 mph.

Taking the top spot is a confidence booster for the week, Blaney said.

"It's always good to come out here and have some speed," he said. "We didn't start out very fast early on and we got it better and better, and got pretty happy with it. We'll find out tomorrow."

A total of 15 teams took part in the optional practice in the lead up to the UNOH All Star Circuit of Champions events Wednesday and Thursday nights and the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series events Friday through Sunday.

Brad Sweet, who comes into the event as the reigning Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year, was second fastest behind Blaney with a time of 12.822. The Kasey Kahne Racing driver found success at Volusia in 2014, winning the Outlaws season opener.

Dennis Erb Jr Wins Opening Night
of East Bay Raceway Park Winternationals

Erb Tues Nite Winner

TAMPA, FL (February 10, 2015) – Dennis Erb Jr. took the lead on lap ten and won a thrilling feature event on the opening night of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Winternationals at East Bay Raceway Park. Erb’s seventh career win at “The Clay by the Bay” was hard fought early on as he and Billy Moyer had a back and forth battle for the lead.

Earl Pearson Jr. came home second after skating by Moyer on lap 14. Moyer then held off a furious late-race rally from Bobby Pierce to take third. Pierce started 16th on the grid and wound up fourth with Brandon Sheppard coming home in fifth.

“It feels good to get the win on the first night. It seemed like no one could get any traction out there. Turns three and four were slick and one and two were hammer-down. I guess we were just lucky to pull away from those guys. Billy [Moyer] and I had a really good race at the start. I didn’t know what was going on behind me. All I know is that turn four was hard to get out of. The fans definitely saw an exciting race, but our cars were a handful to drive,” said Erb.

“I would like to thank Barry Wright Race Cars and Jay Dickens Race Engines. It was the first time we’ve run this combination here. We ran really well on Saturday Night at Golden Isles. I want to thank my crew chief, Heather Lyne, my sponsors, McBride Mack, JR McBride Leasing, Cheap Cars, PRC, Midwest Sheet Metal, Maximum Racing Oils, M&S Concrete, and Ohlins.”

The race for the lead between Erb and Moyer was spectacular in the first six laps of the race. Each led three circuits, and then Moyer led three more until Erb wrestled the lead away from him for good on lap ten.

Pearson was happy with his runner-up finish. “Our car was good all night; these hard tires are something to deal with on this race track. It was a pretty good race, and trying to get traction was difficult. I want to thank Lucas Oil Products and Dunn-Benson Ford. We will be back tomorrow night and give it another shot.”

Moyer, the winningest Late Model driver in Winternationals history [with 23 victories] was pleased with his third place car. “As it turned out, Dennis had the best car. My car kept jumping in-and-out of gear; I am not making excuses, it just happened. We just have to figure out these tires and go from there. We have had a good start to speedweeks and we hope to continue that momentum here tomorrow night,” said the driver the Henderson Motorsports and Garnant Family Longhorn Chassis.

Completing the top ten were Dennis Franklin, Josh Richards, Billy Moyer Jr., Eddie Carrier, Jr. and Jason Papich.

In preliminary action, Dennis Erb Jr. set the overall Miller Welders Fast Time (Group A) amongst the 42 entrants, with a lap of 15.177 seconds. Billy Moyer set the fastest time in Group B with a time of 15.273 seconds. Dennis Erb Jr., Stormy Scott, Billy Moyer and Earl Pearson Jr. won their respective heat races. Jimmy Owens and Mark Whitener won their respective B-Mains. Jason Papich won the DirtonDirt.com Strawberry Dash.

Re :   Bubba Raceway Park

RESULTS FOR 2-8

MADSEN MAKES IT A CLEAN SWEEP OF ALL STARS
AT BUBBA RACEWAY PARK

OCALA, FL. (Sunday, Feb. 8, 2015) – Kerry Madsen made it look easy the first two nights of the University of Northwestern Ohio All Star Circuit of Champions visit to Bubba Raceway Park as he roared to the victories. However, the third night proved not to be so easy, but the outcome was the same. The Madman would lead 29 of the 30 laps and record his third straight victory.

Madsen’s three wins moves him atop the win total for All Star races at Bubba with 4 career victories…all in a row as he won the last series race at the track. It is his sixth overall All Star win.

Madsen, with his Brian Morrison horsepower, made a fantastic move in lapped traffic with five to go to retake the lead from Chad Kemenah, who had used the traffic to drive into the lead the previous lap.

“All weekend I’ve been running a real nice line and it’s worked well. Tonight it just wouldn’t work. It got real gritty up there so I just kind of figured no one was going to go around me up there cause I can’t go around anyone up there so I tried to start and stop it on the bottom. I wasn’t really good at it but I was good enough in one and two. Chad had me clean there and I had one shot around the outside and I took it. That was a tough race,” said Madsen beside his Keneric Racing/American Racing Custom Wheels/Earthex Logistics backed #29.

“Lapped traffic was difficult. I couldn’t get through it quite as good as I could the last two nights. You make a decision where someone was running the lap before and they change their line and I was struggling with it. I knew there would be someone on my heels and I wasn’t very good in four. When you’re running like that you’re trying to stay focused and maximize where you are good,” added Madsen.

“This is a fun track and I really appreciate the effort Bubba (Clem, track promoter) and Tony (Stewart, All Star owner) put in…especially Tony and all the All Star officials. The crowds have been fantastic and it’s a fun place to be,” concluded Madsen.

For Kemenah, who has been reunited with his brother Brian as the Hunter Racing Team mechanic, the strong second place run is a shot in the arm as the team heads to Volusia Speedway Park.

“It was a blast. Kerry did what he had to do. I got by him there and the lapped cars got pretty confusing sometimes but I’m not complaining. This feels great to be a race car driver rather than an owner…I can’t thank Rob and Rita Hunter enough and my brother and everybody sticking behind me. There’s a lot of people out there who probably think I can’t drive any more. I hope there was some people watching. I’m getting more and more comfortable every race with my brother and I hope we can keep going better and better. We’re going to get one before we leave Florida,” said Kemenah beside his Seneca Energy/Night Hawk Holdings/Brilex LLC backed #10h.

“I want to thank J&J, Kistler Engines…Paul builds a hell of a power plant…man this thing runs…it showed in qualifying,” added Kemenah.

For the second straight night Steve Kinser would bring his Tony Stewart-Curb Agajanian Motorsports #11 home in third though he and Kemenah battled several laps for the runner-up spot.

“We went backwards there early in the race and lost three or four spots then we got going pretty good. Sort of got trapped where I didn’t want to be at the start of the race and then got by Chad and shouldn’t have let him slip back by. I thought I had him and I got into one a little too slow and he got back by me. I was trying to catch the bottom there and I would have been better off to motor it right on in there. All in all I had a chance and just didn’t get it done,” said Kinser of his Bad Boy Buggies backed machine.

“It’s a pleasure just driving now. The past four years I’ve been taking care of the car and now it’s being taken care of at his (Tony Stewart) shop and I just show up and drive. I don’t have to worry about the guys working on the car and payroll. He let me run the team as I wanted to. I told him I didn’t want to run much more and he said why don’t you just run it out of my shop and I said that sounded like a good deal,” added Kinser..

Tim Shaffer and Madsen would bring the field to green for the 30 lap feature with Madsen gaining the advantage as Danny Holtgraver had a tremendous drive into second with Shaffer back to third followed by Dale Blaney, Kemenah and Steve Buckwalter in tow.

Shortly after two laps were scored Tyler Clem and Brent Matus would spin in turn four to bring out the caution. On the restart Madsen would pull away from Holtgraver as Kemenah powered to third with Blaney, Shaffer and Buckwalter giving chase. Kemenah would take second on lap six just as the caution would fly for a Caleb Armstrong spin. Armstrong would spin again on the restart.

When the green flew again the race would go to the end without a stoppage.

Madsen appeared to be comfortably on his way to the win until he encountered heavy lapped traffic on lap 12. Kemenah slowly ate into the Mad Man’s lead with Kinser also closing. By lap 17 Kemenah had his hands full with Kinser as they tried to chase down Madsen.

With eight laps to go the leaders were in heavy lapped traffic again and Kemenah and Kinser were within a couple of car lengths of Madsen who was struggling in turn four. Coming to the line to complete lap 24 Kemenah shot off the bottom of turn four, split a lapped car and took the lead.

But, going into turn one, Madsen shot to the outside to regain the top spot. With five laps to go the running order was Madsen, Kemenah, Kinser, Blaney and Holtgraver.

Madsen would clear the traffic and would drive to the win over Kemenah, Kinser, Blaney, Holtgraver, Shaffer, Wayne Johnson, Lucas Wolfe, Buckwalter and Parker Price Miller.

The UNOH All Stars now head to Volusia Speed Park located near Barberville, Florida for racing on Wednesday, Feb. 11 and Thursday, Feb. 12 as part of the DIRTcar Nationals.

Florida Mini Sprints

From The PR Booth With John Moss
Robbie Smith Takes Night 2 At Bubba Raceway Park

What an experience for The Florida Mini Sprint Action and Eddie Moss Sr. Memorial Iron Man Champion and Bubba Raceway Park Track Champion Robbie Smith. The night started off with 13 Mini Sprints signing in to run on the same night and same track as Tony Stewarts All Star Sprint Car Circuit.

The #77 of Smith would pull the number 1 spot for Heat Race one and go on to win in dominating fashion as would the #8 car of Eddie Moss Jr. in the second Heat, but not before the #23 driven by Rhea Lynne Moss would go up in smoke with a blown engine and catch fire. Rhea Lynn would be okay, but her night would be ended.

Smith would then grab the top starting position, with young new comer ‪#‎12x‬ Ian Hord starting on the outside Pole. After running second to eventual winner Eddie Moss Jr. on night one, I had a really good feeling that The Robbie Smith Racing Team was going to go home and do their homework for night two and boy was I right. Robbie went on to lead every lap that he ran in his Heat and Feature cruising to a dominating win. The real race was for positions 2nd, 3rd and 4th. I spoke with Robbie's mom Jeanne Smith after the race and she said "I normally just watch Robbie when he's on the track, but the #12 Pawn King car of Robby Hoffmann and the #8 car put on quite show for the fans and I found myself watching them more than my own son". After speaking with Robbie it was proven to me that this was a very special night for him. As he was walking by Steve Kinser, and Kinser said to him, "Boy you must have done something right you got the trophy". Robbie ended up getting his trophy signed by "The King" himself and then NASCAR's Tony Stewart jumped in on the action and signed the trophy also. Hoffman and Moss Jr. would have an outstanding battle between the two of them for second and third passing each other a minimum of 6 different times, never touching each other, but getting extremely close. Hoffman's response after the race was "John, that was some of the most intense racing I've ever been involved in. I'm really pleased to bring the car home in one piece after running 2nd and 3rd on consecutive nights". Moss Jr would end up coming home in forth. The #67 Todd's Quality Tomatoes & Wholesale Produce Mini Sprint of David Hall had an extremely long but productive night. Hall started 4th, spun twice, had some contact with the #04 of Paige Moss but would eventually find a good line on the high side through turns 3 and 4 and bring home a podium finish. The ‪#‎24x‬ of Danny Sams Jr. would round out the top 5.

Thank you to all the Drivers and Teams who came out and supported the F.M.S.A. and a special Thank You to Bubba Raceway Park and Tony Stewart for this awesome opportunity.

Scofield takes win in 30th Icebreaker 100

Scofield takes win in 30th Icebreaker 100

by Scott Lockwood

For the first three quarters of the 30th running of the Icebreaker 100 this weekend at Desoto Speedway, 2014 Brighthouse Series and Desoto track champion Jesse Dutilly looked like he'd start 2015 in a place he found quite often in 2014: victory lane.

But after a mechanical failure 26 laps from the end of the race brought the Bradenton's driver's hopes of winning the track's biggest race of the year to a screeching halt it was veteran driver Jeff Scofield who was left holding the trophy in front of the sun-drenched crowd in Eastern Manatee County.
Dutilly started on the pole and led the first five laps before being overtaken by Scofield for the top spot. As Scofield, Dutilly, Chris Fontaine and Anthony Cataldi battled for the top spot Cataldi and Fontaine tangled, triggering a melee that collected several cars and sending Cataldi to the pits with damage. He was able to rejoin the field before the restart after quick repairs.

Dutilly passed Scofield for the lead on the outside on a lap 21 restart and wasted no time pulling out to a 10 car-length lead over Scofield, Fontaine and defending race winner Joe Boyd. He had over a one-second advantage over Scofield when the caution flew for Troy McNabb's spin in turn four.
On the restart Dutilly held off a challenge from Scofield, Fontaine, Boyd and 14 year-old rookie Tyler Dippel, a dirt modified driver from New York making his first-ever start on asphalt. Dippel was challenging Boyd and Fontaine for fourth when he and Michael Atwell got together in turn two, sending Dippel into a spin.

Scofield and Boyd both got past Dutilly on the lap 51 restart. Dutilly finally got back around Boyd 10 laps later and needed only two more laps to pull off the outside pass on Scofield to get back out front. As Dutilly began pulling away fluid began spraying out of the rear of his car. On lap 74 a large plume of smoke came from Dutilly's car and two lapped cars spun in the oil. After several trips to the pits to repair the car, Dutilly's day came to an end with an apparent rear end failure.

Boyd inherited the lead with 24 laps to go, but was passed by both Scofield and the restart. Dipper was challenging Boyd for third on lap 84 when he lost control of his car and slammed the wall in second corner. Scofield, who said the oil left by Dutilly's car made the track very slippery over the closing laps, held off a challenge from Fontaine with seven laps to go and went on to collect another Icebreaker 100 win. "I've got to hand it to Chris and Joe because we hit that oil and we were bumping and grinding - and we kept our cool and showed some good sportsmanship," Scofield said. "I'm not going to lie - I'm happy Dutilly broke because nobody could run with him. I'm not sure what he's got...but he was gone."

The runner-up finish was a good start of the season for Fontaine, who will run in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Daytona in two weeks. "That was probably the cleanest Jeff and I have ever race," Fontaine said. "It was fun but I wish we had a little more. None of us had anything for the 30 (Dutilly)."

Boyd followed up last year's win with a third place finish. He said he needed about 20 more laps to give Scofield a serious challenge for the victory.
"We could have given him a run for his money," Boyd said. Nick Neri and Dylan Bigley rounded out the top five. Atwell, Billy Bigley, Scott Walters, Cataldi and Tyler Scofield finsihed sixth through 10th, respectively.

Sunday's 50-lap Open Wheel Modified feature was another event that went down to the wire. Just one lap into the race, Steve Arnold and Doug Moff were racing down the back stretch side-by-side for the lead. The two cars made contact and spun directly in front of the 22-car field. Both cars were able to continue with Moff, who set fast time in qualifying, being sent to the rear.

After a rash of caution flags Arnold found himself in a fight for the lead with Devin McCleod and Travis Roland. Roland eventually got to the lead on lap 11 and was starting to pull away when the yellow flew again for Robert Haygood's spin on lap 15. Roland had built a solid lead before Wayne Jefferson began reeling him in over the final 10 laps. Roland and Jefferson made contact a couple of times and Jefferson appeared poised to take the lead when the caution flew for Travis Todd's spin on lap 46.

Jefferson made Roland pay for taking the outside lane on the restart and easily took the lead as the field made its way on to the back stretch. On another restart Roland got into the back of Jefferson and caused him to spin, and Roland was sent to the rear of the field with just two laps left.
Jefferson would hold off a challenge from Cody Stickler on the final restart to take the win. Moff rallied to finish third, while Cameron Ray and L.J. Grimm rounded out the top five.

Winged Sprint Cars were the final headline event of the weekend. Dave Steele, who picked up the win in Saturday night's 40-lap, non-wing sprint car event, started fourth in Sunday's 50-lap feature and needed just half a lap to get to the tail of polesitter and early leader Ty DeCaire.
DeCaire put a little distance on Steele before catching traffic about 20 laps into the race. That allowed Steele, a three-time Little 500 champion to close quickly and eventually pass DeCaire for the lead at the halfway point. Steele went unchallenged the rest of the way to pick up the victory. DeCaire had a career-best second place finish, while Mickey Kempghens - the only other car to finish on the lead lap - was third.

In other action this weekend, Steve Darvalics led from flag-to-flag to take the 50-lap Pro Truck feature; Palmetto's Billy Carlbert won the 30-lap Pure Stock feature; Rob Kohler won the three-quarter midget feature; Darin Coker won the 20-lap Legends feature; Bobby Mobley won Saturday's 35-lap Street Stock feature; Kenny Gibson and James Wright III won Saturday and Sunday's 30-lap Bomber features; and Mike Gamache won Saturday's School Bus Figure 8 race.
