VonDohren Wins Pioneer Forrest Rogers Memorial For Third Straight Year August 5, 2017

VonDohren Wins Pioneer Forrest Rogers Memorial For Third Straight Year

BECHTELSVILLE, PA. AUGUST 6, 2017 –NASCAR 358 Modified point leader and defending champion Craig VonDohren scored a three-peat and became the only eight-time winner when he won the Forrest Rogers Memorial/Pioneer Pole Buildings 50-lap TP Trailers 358 NASCAR Modified feature for a $10,000 payday on Saturday night at Grandview Speedway in the races broadcast by RCN-TV, Allentown. The race is run in memory of the founder of the speedway.

During the course of the evening it was announced that the September 16th Freedom 76 Modified Classic, the biggest event of the season, would be run in memory of the late track promoter Bruce Rogers, who passed away in March, and will pay $30,000 to win. More details on this very special event will be released shortly.

VonDohren now joins Fred Rahmer, the ’82, ’83 and ’84 winner as the only driver at the 1/3-mile Berks Co. clay oval to win the prestigious event three straight times.

The defending and current point leader, who broke into the winner’s circle last week, didn’t have an easy time since he first had to battle side-by-side with Colt Harris several laps before he moved into first on the 31st lap and the he outran runner-up Mike Gular, who gave it his all several times, finishing second by a narrow 1.696 margin.

In victory lane VonDohren commented, “it was hard, flat-out racing and his crew worked diligently to repair the car after it got tore up in the heat race. The top was the place to be even though it was good on the bottom and I had to mix it up and run the middle while battling with Gular.”

Mahaney Takes Home $5,000 After Winning The “JACK 50” At Fonda August 2, 2017

Mahaney Takes Home $5,000 After Winning The “JACK 50” At Fonda

Fonda, NY – The “Track of Champions” Fonda Speedway held the Third Annual Jack Johnson Tribute event on Wednesday evening August 2, a 50-lap feature event paying $5,000 to win. When the checkered flag flew it was Mike Mahaney taking the big win in the Buzz Chew #88 Bicknell car, the new car just recently brought out to try an end the frustrating 2017 season Mahaney has had up until now.

Mahaney is no stranger to big money wins at Fonda as back in 2012 he won the opening event of the season known as the “Ice Jam” which paid $4,000. To top that all off he won the season ending event in 2012, also a Tribute to Jack Johnson, worth $12,000 to the winner.

“The track had a lot of grip in it tonight and I was just trying to stay close to the 9S (Matt Sheppard) who was leading early so that if he made a mistake I could capitalize on it,” Mahaney said in victory lane. “Then I was able to make it around Matt and a lap car for the lead.”

When Jim King asked Mahaney in victory lane how he found his ride in the Buzz Chew #88 Mahaney said “I think that he found me.”

Wednesday was a special event honoring a very special driver, one whom promoter Pete Demitraszek said “helped build this house and one of the reasons that Fonda Speedway is called the Track of Champions.”

There was a sea of “orange” in the large crowd that gathered at Fonda for the event which also featured the 12th Annual Hondo Classic honoring the late Hondo Carpenter with Nick Stone the winner of that event while Rocky Warner took home his sixth win of the season in the 30-lap GRIT Series event for the 602 Sportsman.

Guest co-announcer Bill Foley said after the event “to be able to call this race with Jim King honoring Jack Johnson was a thrill.”

Jessey Mueller’s father drove one of the Jack Johnson Vintage cars around the track for pace laps, one of those laps featuring a four wide salute to Jack and all the fans in attendance. When Joe Kriss’ green flag flew it was Matt Sheppard who was the early leader from his pole position start with Mahaney second from the outside pole.

Sheppard pulled away to a straightaway advantage by lap five and was already in lap traffic at that point as seventh place starter Stewart Friesen was the new third place car on lap 13 after getting by Mike Maresca. The first caution of the event was out on lap 13 and on the restart ninth place starter and current point’s leader Tim Fuller made his way into the top five.

Sheppard was in lap traffic again by lap 20 with Mahaney closing in at that point. On lap 22, Mahaney got to the inside of Sheppard in turn two to take over the lead with the yellow flag out again one lap later for the fifth place car of Mueller who came to a stop on the front stretch. Fuller continued his march to the front on the restart, moving into the third position and with 14 laps to go in the 50-lap event, Fuller was the new second place car after getting by Sheppard.

With 10 laps to go the top two of Mahaney and Fuller made it their own race for the win as they pulled away from Sheppard with Mahaney fast on the outside and Fuller quick on the inside. Over the closing laps Fuller would duck inside Mahaney in the turns but Mahaney kept his momentum up each time and kept the lead going down the straightaways.

Mahaney held on for the win in the “Jack 50” followed in the top five by Fuller, Friesen, Sheppard, and 20th place starter Bobby Varin.

“This team stuck with me while I was struggling, but we all hung in there and dug deep,” Mahaney said in victory lane. “It is amazing for me to come back here at one of the tracks that I got my start after having many different rides since in an event this big.”

Brandon Sheppard Wins 28th Annual Prairie Dirt Classic July 29, 2017

Brandon Sheppard Wins 28th Annual Prairie Dirt Classic

FAIRBURY, IL— July 29, 2017— The World of Outlaws Craftsman® Late Model Series and the team at Fairbury American Legion Speedway made history on Saturday night during the 28th annual Prairie Dirt Classic as the highest paying race to ever take place in the state of Illinois with a $30,000 payout. Brandon Sheppard wheeled his way to victory on Saturday night ultimately breaking a three-year winless streak for Illinois-drivers at the event.

The two-day show saw 65 of the nation’s best Dirt Late Model drivers compete on the Fairbury, Ill stage. The standing room only crowd nearlytripled the size of the all-American city as fans traveled from far and wide to experience one of the most anticipated Dirt Late Model events of the year.

The 28th annual Prairie Dirt Classic did not disappoint as the semi-banked quarter-mile dirt oval produced multiple lanes of racing every time cars hit the track. The 100-lap feature event was no exception, as three different drivers took command of the lead during the race including Shane Clanton, Ryan Unzicker, and eventual winner, Brandon Sheppard.

“This car is awesome every night we take it out of the box,” said Sheppard on his 11th win with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series. “I have to thank my crew Dan, Austin, Joel, Mark, little Brian, everyone at Keyser Manufacturing, Durham Racing Engines they all keep this thing going night in and night out. I have to also thank my Dad and my Grandpa. I wouldn’t have a racing career if it wasn’t for them.”

Sheppard led 69 laps of the 100-lap event, taking total control over the lead on lap 40. He was even able to defend his lead after three restarts.

Several cars juggled positions behind the Rocket1 often battling four-wide for the final two podium positions including Unzicker, Clanton, Devin Moran, Jason Feger, Chris Simpson, Brian Shirley, and Mike Marlar.

The fight for second and third came down to the last lap as Unzicker passed Moran on lap 99 to finish second in the 29-car feature.

“I tell you what, this feels freaking awesome running second to these guys,” said Unzicker. “It feels like I’m winning a million.”

Earlier in the day during the redraw, Unzicker was explaining to Series Announcer, Rick Eshelman, that he would be satisfied with a top-five finish because he had not made the show the past three years he entered into the Prairie Dirt Classic.

“This thing ran great tonight,” said Unzicker. “I was just thankful to be up there and running with these guys. Our car was pretty decent but these guys are damn good. It was a hell of a racetrack and it was ‘falsy’.

Devin Moran finished two spots shy of sweeping the weekend. On Friday, Moran turned the fastest lap during qualifying with a 12.627-second lap. The Rookie of the Year Contender then went on to lead every lap of the first of four Showdown Features to claim the win, ultimately placing him in the redraw for the 100-lap main event. Moran’s luck continued on Saturday as he pulled the no. one wrench from the Craftsman tool box putting him on the pole for his first time at the Prairie Dirt Classic.

Moran was passed on the first lap by Clanton who started directly behind him in third. Clanton led the first 23-laps of the 100-lap feature before getting passed by relentless track-regular, Unzicker. Within the first six-laps Moran had fallen outside of the top-five but the long-distance race granted him time to find his way back to the front of the pack.

“I wasn’t quite patient enough,” said Moran. “I kind of blew the deck out of it there at the end but congrats to [Sheppard and his crew] they’ve been on their own speed level this year and we are still just trying to play catch up. We got close there tonight but we just fell back too far early in the race and that just killed us. It’s our first time at FALS so we will definitely take a third-place finish.”

Matt Sheppard Dominates SDS at Autodrome Granby July 25, 2017

Matt Sheppard Dominates SDS at Autodrome Granby

GRANBY, QC, CAN – July 25, 2017 – In front of a packed house and clear skies, the Super DIRTcar Series started a successful Quebec swing at Autodrome Granby as Matt Sheppard had a dominant run to get his second win of the season on the tour.

“It feels good,” Sheppard said in the Winner’s Circle. ‘’I always seem to have success when I come up in Quebec. I think these tracks are made for me and it is always fun to race in front of these great fans,’’ added Sheppard in front of the packed Autodrome Granby stands as the always are for the Series’ Quebec swing. 

“I came close last week, but had issues with a tire but happy to be here and hats off to (Pat) Ward for his second-place (finish).”

Challenging Sheppard on a few occasions was Ward, who finished second. 

“I tried but didn’t have enough,” Ward said. “My time will come.” 

Completing the podium was Brett Hearn.

“I was two pounds over limit and ran out of gas at the scale,” Hearn said. ‘’I always have success up here. It’s always great to come back here.”

The original start saw Tim Fuller lead as Brandon Walters stopped in the backstretch. On the restart, Fuller remained in front with David Hebert and Larry Wight in third. Hebert was strong on the high side and grabbed the lead on lap 5. Stewart Friesen slowed and brought out the caution on the following lap.

Hebert and Fuller swapped the lead on a lap 11 restart as the driver of the No.19 was back in front with Hearn in third. Hebert was back in front on lap 20 after he made a great pass on Fuller using the inside lane. Hearn made a similar move to take second from Fuller just as the leaders got into lapped traffic on lap 25.

Hearn had a great restart on lap 29 to take the lead from Hebert as Sheppard ran in third. Hebert started to fade and gave third to Ward on lap 36. Sheppard had a dominant ride as he took the lead on lap 44 from Hearn and quickly pulled away from the field.

Max McLaughlin slowed the field down on lap 51. When the green lights were back on, Sheppard stayed on top as Larry Wight drove to fourth and Peter Britten cracked the top 5. Ward started to challenge Hearn for second and he was able to take the second spot on lap 57.

A few cautions slowed the final portion of the feature as Sheppard had to resist a few charges from Ward in the closing laps with Hearn completing the podium.

Steve Bernard won the Pole Position Raceway Fast Qualifier Award with a time of 18.399 seconds. Heats races were completed quickly with polesitters Steve Bernard, Max McLaughlin, Larry Wight and Jimmy Phelps dominating their sessions. Local runners Yan Bussiere and Kevin Hamel won the Last Chance Qualifiers
