By: Tim Baltz

The action this past Saturday night at the Brockville Ontario Speedway was exciting as ever as familiar faces and a first tie winner all graced victory lane.

The Ogilvie’s 358 Modified Quad Crown Series was set for 50 exciting laps and Ryan Arbuthnot wasted no time jumping to the head of the class over Chris Herbison, Danny O’Brien, Luke Whitteker and Bobby Herrington. The drivers in this event immediately found out that top lane was fast and Arbuthnot kept his machine there in the opening laps as Danny O’Brien made his charge to 2nd and was looking for the leader. On lap 10 Arbuthnot continued his great run but O’Brien was not letting him go away and continued to hound the race leader. On lap 21 The first caution flew for Madison Mulder as he slowed off turn 2. The next 3 restarts Danny O’Brien did all he could to grab the lead but Arbuthnot had the top lane working and as able to sneak buy. On lap 24 another caution flew for Tim O’Brien who sowed down the back stretch while running 6th. When the green flew Danny O’Brien finally made the pass work taking over the top spot and started to put on a dominant performance. With 15 to go O’Brien had over a straightaway lead while behind him Arbuthnot, Bobby Herrigton and Luke Whitteker were all in a great battle for a top 5 spot. Each driver would trade positions using great 2 and 3 wide passes as they put on a great battle. In the end, nobody had anything for the 13 time track champion as he marched to his 2nd straight win over Ryan Arbuthnot, Luke Whitteker, Bobby Herrington and Kyle Dingwall who came from 10th to complete the top 5.

Moran Gets First WoO Victory at Atomic Speedway May 26, 2017

Moran Gets First WoO Victory at Atomic Speedway

CHILLICOTHE, Ohio— May 26, 2017— Devin Moran struck gold at Atomic Speedway during the World of Outlaws Craftsman® Late Model Series first appearance in 2017 in his home state of Ohio. Moran landed his first quick time of the season during qualifying, won his heat race and led all 50-laps of the Craftsman Club Feature to wheel his way to his first career Series win.

“When I crossed the checker flag I was yelling in my helmet,” said Moran. “Everything fell in our favor tonight. We had the car right and that’s what it starts with. Then we got quick time, won our heat and drew a good pill. It’s been a picture-perfect night here. It’s awesome to get our first win in Ohio on a night like this.”

While pulling his Tye Twarog Racing/DMR machine down the front stretch on his way to park it in Victory Lane, fans rushed to the fence waving and yelling for their newly-earned home state hero. After letting out a battle cry under a shower of confetti, Moran jumped from the roof of his car and headed straight towards his dad, Donnie, for a high-five and a hug.

“This is awesome. This is what we have worked towards for a long time and he’s finally come to his age here a little bit and got up on the wheel and got the job done tonight,” said Donnie Moran of Devin’s win.

Moran’s redraw placed him on the outside of pole sitter, Frank Heckenast Jr. On the first lap Moran took the lead before creating an impressive 1.426-second gap between him and the rest of the field in only two laps time. With the help of lap traffic, Heckenast began to reel in the Rookie of the Year Contender but unfortunately due to mechanical issues he was forced to retire from the feature on lap 25.

The pivot point of the race for eventual second-place finisher, Steve Casebolt, was lap 30 when a caution fell for Morgan Bagley as he slowed on the track. Under the same caution, Brian Shirley called it an early night and Shane Clanton headed to the pits with a right rear flat. At the time of the caution, Shirley was running seventh and Clanton was running fourth. With Clanton out of the picture, Casebolt moved to fifth for the restart of which he took big-time advantage of. Casebolt jumped up the chain on the restart moving from fifth to second in the span of just one lap.

Casebolt was sporting a brand-new ride for the Outlaw race at Atomic Speedway thanks to Jim Beeman and Tader Masters, but you would never know because he was able to finish second from a thirteenth start.

“I think I got the call on Tuesday, and we put this thing together in a hurry,” said Casebolt. “Working with Tader Masters has always been a dream of mine. I know how good he is with racecars and I’ve always wanted to learn from him. I think tonight showed that he had no doubt in me. I have to thank Jim Beeman for putting this deal together. Without him there’s no way Tater and I would have gotten the chance to work together.”

Series powerhouse and current points leader, Brandon Sheppard, rounded out the podium for the 50-lap $10,000-to-win event at Atomic Speedway.

Bumper Jones Takes Checkers at Southern New Mexico Speedway May 20, 2017

Bumper Jones Takes Checkers at Southern New Mexico Speedway

The weekly racing series continued at the Southern New Mexico Speedway with 31 Rancho Milagro USRA Modifieds checking in. The Body Works Super Trucks, Shaw Trucking DIRTcar Late Models, Casa Nissan Legends of the Southwest and Sun Valley Hardware USRA Stock Cars joined the action on this beautiful May 20, 2017.

 
Thirty-one Rancho Milagro USRA Modifieds checked in calling for a B-Main! The drivers brought the energy tonight as the 25-lap main event was a stellar one. Bumper Jones started on the pole with Austin Adams to his outside. At the green Jones launched like a rocket and pulled away quickly from the field. On lap three a caution flew for Carlos Ahumada Jr. on top of turns one and two. Jones had outstanding restarts tonight as he hit his mark in every single start out of corner number four. Jones led a lap until another caution flew for Roger Owens in turn one. At the restart Jones absolutely took off leaving Adams and Todd Harper battling for runner-up. Five laps after the restart Jones worked his way to a whole straight-away lead. One lap later the gap went away as Ricardo Olague Jr. drew the yellow for stopping on the bottom of turn four. It was a caution-free race after that and yet again Jones took off with another perfect restart.

"I kept looking at the scoreboard and saw the G17 (Fito Gallardo) getting closer, and I knew he was behind me," said Jones.

Sure enough, two laps after the restart on lap 11, Gallardo worked his way into third after starting 13th! Lap 14 Gallardo was one-tenth of a second faster then Jones. Lap 17 Gallardo was now three-tenths of a second faster than Jones as lapped traffic became a factor. Jones was married to the top of the Southern New Mexico Speedway as Gallardo worked the bottom and then the middle.

"Bumper shot me there in turn two," said Gallardo.

Jones played good defense on the closing laps as he forced Gallardo to go low and lose speed in turn two. Jones would jump back to the top as Dusty Riggs was about to go a lap down with the leaders coming fast! Jones didn't waste any time as two lapped cars blocked Gallardo on the bottom. At the end, Gallardo dolphin-dived it coming out of turn four coming to the checkered flag with Jones on the outside! It was a photo-finish and transponders, plus an actual photo-finish picture from Classick MotorArt proved that Jones won by a hair in an outstanding finish! Jones will go back-to-back in the Rancho Milagro USRA Modified division.
