Owens Lands $25,001 At First In Flight 100 May 12, 2018

Owens Lands $25,001 At First In Flight 100

FAYETTEVILLE, NC– May 12, 2018– Jimmy Owens outran the World of Outlaws Craftsman® Late Model Series regulars at Fayetteville Motor Speedway to claim a $25,001 payday during the inaugural First in Flight 100 presented by Hoker Trucking. The veteran driver of Newport, TN also collected an extra $2,001 on Friday evening after winning the 10-lap “Big C Dash for Cash” which honored the late Carlton Lamm.

“This works out great because we were kind of up in arms about even coming and Jim [Long] (Fayetteville Motor Speedway’s promoter) called and said, ‘Are you coming?’ so I said ‘OK’,” said Owens. “I’m glad he invited us. We just feel really welcomed to come down here. The fans have been awesome and everybody has just been great.”

Owens started on the pole for the 100-lap finale beside Brandon Sheppard, the defending World of Outlaws Champion. Sheppard nabbed the lead position on the first lap, but on lap 16 the New Berlin, IL driver succumbed to Owens high-side momentum.

“It got rubbered up about halfway but you can’t do nothing in 90-degree weather,” said Owens. “The guys [at Fayetteville Motor Speedway] did their best to give us an awesome racetrack. I was able to pass for the lead there early and maintain it the rest of the race.”

Fourteen separate cautions fell throughout the feature event, the last happening on lap 99 (for Dennis Franklin who unfortunately ran out of fuel exiting turn four). The event went into “overtime” with a green-white-checkers style finish. Even with the late race caution, Owens was able to pull away from Sheppard by 1.128 seconds by the time the checkers fell.

“I was pretty good on the long runs there and [Owens] was definitely slowing down on the long runs to reserve tires and everything, and I was too,” said Sheppard. “In the beginning, I got out front there and was slowing the pace up and off a restart there he just got up on the wheel and did what he had to do and got back by me and that was the end of it for me.”

“Then, we went single file [for restarts]. I’m glad we did go single file though because I know me and Fergy (Chris Ferguson) had the elbows up coming off of (turn) four and we were rubbing paint,” continued Sheppard. “All and all, I was a pretty good night. Second place, not the turn out we wanted but we’ll take it and congratulations to Jimmy and thanks for all of the fans for coming out.”

North Carolina native, Ferguson was relentlessly trying to chase down Sheppard but fell victim to transmission issues just shy of the half-way mark on lap 47. Headed into tonight’s event, Ferguson was leading the rookie of the year point standings by eight points over David Breazeale. Collecting his best finish of the season so far by rounding out the podium, Breazeale shot ahead of the rookie standings by 26 points over Ferguson, 42 points over Brent Larson and 132 points ahead of Timothy Culp.

“To run third here at Fayetteville after our last feature here about 10 years ago, this has been great,” said Breazeale. “It’s a big morale booster for the team. We got a fourth the other night, then Chris [Ferguson] got a fourth, and then we back it up with third so maybe we gained some points on him tonight… [Racing on new tracks] is a challenge but we enjoy it and I don’t have any bad habits when we go there so we just go there and race the racetrack.”

Fuqua Takes USRA Modified Main Event at Lucas Oil Speedway May 12, 2018

Fuqua Takes USRA Modified Main Event at Lucas Oil Speedway

Wheatland, Missouri (May 13, 2018) - On a Saturday night of memorable finishes in the Big Adventure RV Weekly Racing Series, Darron Fuqua earned a thriller in the main event at Lucas Oil Speedway.

Fuqua passed Chase Domer in the final turn of the final lap of the Pitts Homes USRA Modified feature, earning $1,000 in the night's 25-lap headliner.

Fuqua, of Mayetta, Kan., weaved through lapped traffic and made a daring pass of Domer in the final 75 yards. It was Fuqua's first win at Lucas Oil Speedway and the 99th of the veteran driver's career.

Surely few were more exciting or satisfying than this one.

"I felt like I had a good car, but he was so good on the top," Fuqua said of Domer. "I was good on the bottom. It was basically follow him until he left me just a little bit around the top and that was the only thing I had.

"I just put it in there as hard as I could and I had enough momentum to get around him."

Fuqua worked his way from the ninth starting position and into contention as Domer and fellow front-row starter Ronnie Woods traded the lead five times over the first 15 laps.

In a race with only one caution, Domer caught lapped traffic with five laps to go and Fuqua continued his steady gain, setting up the thrilling finish.

"I was hoping to have a lane down low, but there was a lapped car there," Fuqua said. "I just did the one thing I had, 110 percent."

Mark Dotson came home third with Lance Town coming all the way from 17th to fourth and Woods finishing fifth.

Aaron Reutzel Captures 1st Career All Star Sprint Win In “Buckeye Cup” May 5, 2018

Aaron Reutzel Captures 1st Career All Star Sprint Win In “Buckeye Cup”

(Hartford, OH)After losing two open practices and the first two race events due to cold and wet weather in April, Sharon Speedway was finally able to swing open the gates on Saturday night to kick-off the 89th anniversary season of racing.  Tony Stewart’s Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars presented by Mobil 1 made their first of three appearances of the 2018 season with Aaron Reutzel capturing the win, while Brad Blackshear won the Summit Racing Equipment Econo Mods on Lincoln Electric Night.

One week after nearly pulling off a last lap winning pass of Tim Shaffer in the $100,000 to-win “Sprint Car World Championship” at Mansfield Motor Speedway, Aaron Reutzel totally dominated the “Buckeye Cup” on Saturday night leading all 30 laps for his first career All Star win.  Reutzel has pulled off an impressive feat winning his first career World of Outlaws and All Star Circuit of Champions victories in the same season.  The $5,000 victory also propelled him into the All Star point lead for the first time in his career as $50,000 will go to the 2018 champion.

“I could see my crew guy in turn one telling me that I had a huge lead,” explained the Clute, TX winner.  “I’ve never laughed racing, but to see that big guy motion to me that I was clear was pretty funny.  What can you say about this team?  They’re pretty unbelievable.  We put this team together last minute on December 20, but when you surround yourself with a great group of guys like I have, we should do what we’re doing right now.  I’m just part of a hell of a team right now.  I can’t say how proud and lucky I am to be in this situation to be driving their race car.  It’s taken all the stress off me of being a team owner.  We’ve been close with the All Stars a few times, so to get a win now kind of puts some stress behind us.  Now we have the rest of the year to enjoy and try to win more.”

After winning the first dash, Reutzel quickly bolted into the lead over Carl Bowser, while fourth starting Carson Macedo, Tony Stewart, and Josh Baughman completed the first five after the opening lap.  Macedo drove under Bowser for second on lap three with Stewart following in third one lap later.  All eyes quickly shifted to Parker Price-Miller, who was flying around the extreme top-side of the 3/8-mile.  The 14th starting Kokomo, Indiana youngster was already up to sixth after four laps then cracked the top five on lap five getting by Baughman before the first caution of the event for John Garvin, Jr.

When green replaced yellow, Baughman and Cole Duncan tangled in turn three with both drivers getting upside down.  Both drivers were okay, but tempers flared as both had to be separated by officials.  That would be the event’s final stoppage as the remaining 25 laps went green-to-checkered.  Price-Miller continued his way forward when racing resumed getting by Bowser for fourth.

Following Price-Miller forward was Jac Haudenschild.  “The Wild Child” started one row behind Price-Miller in 16th, and made the move on PPM for fourth on lap nine.  Back up front, Reutzel had opened up a half-straightaway lead on Macedo when he caught traffic on lap 11.  Haudenschild reeled in Stewart in the race for third and drove to the inside of the three-time NASCAR Cup Champion on lap 12 to take the spot.  Stewart would then lose fourth to Price-Miller on lap 18 when he smacked the turns one and two fence.

Reutzel’s only real scare actually came on the final lap when he moved down low and caught a rut, which skated his car across the track.  Reutzel lost some speed, but luckily for him no one made contact as he still raced on to his first career Sharon win by 5.348 seconds in the Folkens Brothers Trucking/Precision Catalyst/Dissolvalloy-sponsored, Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports-owned #87.

Macedo was second.  Haudenschild earned the MSD Performance Hard Charger award improving 13 positions to a third place effort over Price-Miller, who gained 10.  Stewart dropped to fifth.  Brandon Spithaler was sixth.  Last Saturday night’s $100,000 Mansfield winner, Tim Shaffer, was seventh after starting 15th.  Rico Abreu was eighth over Bowser, who faded to ninth.  Dave Blaney was 10th after starting 19th.

Chris Dilbeck Gets CARS Tour Win at Hickory May 5, 2018

Chris Dilbeck Gets CARS Tour Win at Hickory

NEWTON, NC (May 6, 2018) - To say the Cloer Construction 300 was a wild affair at Hickory Motor Speedway on Saturday night would have been an understatement. After nearly a dozen laps of pushing, shoving, and heated tempers, Chris Dilbeck survived to capture his first CARS Response Energy Tour win in the super late model division, while Bobby McCarty outran some of the country's best racers to claim his second career CARS Tour triumph on the late model stock side.

 
Brandon Setzer captured the Mahle Pistons Pole Award following two rounds of Fivestar Bodies Knockout Qualifying to earn the right to start from the front row for the 150-lap contest which opened the Cloer Construction 300. Setzer led the opening five circuits before yielding the top spot to Chris Dilbeck on lap 6.
 
For nearly 120 laps, drivers patiently swapped positions back and forth on the .363-mile oval as the laps slowly wound down. A spin by Taylor Stricklin on lap 120 set the stage for one of the most heart-pounding sequence of events seen at Hickory Motor Speedway in decades. 
 
On the restart, Raphael Lessard and Chris Dilbeck raced into the first turn while trading paint with one another until Dilbeck narrowly emerged as the leader. He held that spot despite heavy pressure until Jake Crum and Tate Fogleman got into a tussle on lap 139 which brought out the caution flag yet again. 
 
Soon after the restart, Brandon Setzer muscled his way to the lead by Dilbeck and Lessard on lap 143, but the six-car pack of aggressively racing drivers allowed Lessard to slide into the lead just one lap later. The other five drivers in the lead battle continually pushed, shoved, and nearly wrecked their cars over the final half dozen circuits. 
 
Two weeks after a gut-wrenching defeat at Orange County Speedway, Brandon Setzer reeled in Lessard after navigating the on-track calamity just in time to attempt a last-lap pass for the win. He made contact with Lessard in turn one, sending the Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota up the hill, allowing him to take the lane and scurry to the lead. Seconds later, however, Lessard drove into turn three to repay the favor and Setzer spun in front of the field. Caution quickly waved but not before Chandler Smith nearly totaled his car in the inside wall after making contact with Lessard on a last-ditch effort to race to the line for what he thought was the finish.
 
With a green-white-checkered restart on the docket, Lessard was placed at the tail for his offense with Setzer, leaving Chandler Smith and Dilbeck on the front row. Again, the top racers leaned on each other in a highly physical race for the trophy, resulting in Dilbeck leading the field into turn three on the final circuit. Smith attempted to upset the No. 9 of Dilbeck and was able to move him, but the maneuver was not enough to secure the victory as a three-wide race to the checkered flag resulted in Dilbeck's first career CARS Response Energy Tour win.
 
"I didn't think it was going to happen because these kids, they don't have to fix their own stuff and they think it's okay to run over everybody, but it got to 'em tonight," Dilbeck said in Edelbrock Victory Lane while looking at his upper quarterpanel which was covered in tire marks from a competitor's right front tire who climbed over him just moments before. "It was tough there at the end and we struggled for about five laps until we were good to go, but I'm out of breath; that's the hardest ten laps I've ever driven I think. We had the best car. That's why I was so frustrated. My spotter and crew chief calmed me down, said it would come back to us, and it did. I was willing for them to just lay over and not have to fight, but I guess they wanted to fight for it, so we fought." 
 
Although all of Dilbeck's battles were fought on-track, other events were transpiring behind him. Following the cooldown lap, Brandon Setzer hastily emerged from his racecar and sprinted the length of the frontstretch to Raphael Lessard's pit where a scuffle ensued. Drivers, crew members and fans all engaged one another briefly until order was restored.
 
Smith managed to hold on for second, followed by Jared Fryar, Anthony Cataldi and Tate Fogleman.
