Decker Scores Third-Straight Highbank Hold-Up Win April 29, 2017

Decker Scores Third-Straight Highbank Hold-Up Win

FULTON, NY – April 29, 2017 – Billy Decker raced from the sixth-starting position to take the lead from outside polesitter Brett Hearn on lap 46 and held off a surging Matt Sheppard to claim his third straight Highbank Holdup 100 victory with the Super DIRTcar Series at Fulton Speedway on Saturday night.

After taking the lead, Decker battled through lapped traffic to build a lead over Hearn. He then had to contend with Sheppard, who rallied from the 11th starting spot to take the runner-up position on lap 56. Decker defended against the reigning champion’s efforts, particularly over the final 10 laps, to secure his first Series win since last year’s edition of the event on April 30, 2016.

“It was tough sledding,” Decker said of the battles throughout the race. “I think if you were rolling you could go pretty good. Matt (Sheppard) came a long way and there was a lot of dicing. I could really carry some speed through the center of the turn and I think that’s what did it.”

Before Decker paced the field, Billy Whittaker and Hearn brought the 30-car field to the green flag for the Series’ season opening points race. Whittaker paced the field over the first four laps until Hearn assumed the point on lap five.

Decker quickly made his presence felt though, as he immediately jumped into the top-five and by lap 12 was challenging Jimmy Phelps for second. At lap 30, Hearn, Phelps and Decker raced nose-to-tail in a thrilling three-car battle for the lead.

Meanwhile, Sheppard methodically paced his way forward and took third from Phelps before the halfway point and set out to track down the leader Decker and second-place runner Hearn.

The only caution of the race came on lap 62, after Sheppard had taken over the second spot, when Tim Sears Jr. spun his No.83 at the bottom of turn two. Sheppard wasn’t able to use the outside lane on the restart to get by Decker, but Phelps rallied to retake the third spot and relegated Hearn to fourth.

From there, Decker enjoyed a five car-length lead under the watchful eye of Sheppard until 20 laps to go when Decker wandered back into lapped traffic Inside the final 10 laps, Decker nearly gifted the win to Sheppard when he slipped up the track in turn three, but regrouped without losing the top spot.

“The last 20 laps I got a little bit tight,” Decker said. “I went to put a move on the 22-car (of Brandon Walters) in lapped traffic and Matt got underneath us. I learned my lesson pretty quick there.”

Sheppard made a final push over the last five laps after the top two had separated from third-place Phelps by a half lap. Sheppard couldn’t muster enough momentum to steal the victory.

“He was a little better at times and I think I was a little better at times,” Sheppard said of Decker. “We didn’t draw the best redraw number tonight, but we had a really good racecar. It’s a great night for us and a great start to the series. It was a fun race and the track was really nice tonight.”

Sheppard nearly capitalized on a $100 bonus as the eleventh starter courtesy of 811 Dig Safely New York. Eighth starting Bobby Varin was the other driver eligible for the award.

Phelps rounded-out the podium while Hearn and Larry Wight completed the top-five.

“We missed it a little bit, but this was our first race of the year,” Phelps said. “We did a bunch of testing, but we haven’t gotten to apply it. We were close. We took off pretty decent, but we just needed to be better about 30 laps in after everybody’s tires cycled in. To be able to start the season off on the right foot close to home in front of the best fans on dirt is good.”

Decker nearly started the season with a perfect night. He earned the Pole Position Raceway Fast Time award with a lap of 16.485 seconds around the 3/8-mile oval. Hearn bested Decker by one spot to win heat one. Whittaker, Wight and Pat Ward were the other heat winners.

Alan Johnson earned the KSE Hard Charger award after racing from 21st to 8th. Johnson won the first Last Chance Qualifier while Chad Phelps won the other. Garry Tomkins, the first driver to exit the race on lap 22, was the recipient of the Speedy First Aid Hard Luck award.

Marlar Magnificent in Scott Sexton Memorial Spring Nationals Win

(April 28, 2017) The Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals presented by Sunoco Race Fuels and Tennessee RV returned to action on Friday evening with the 5th Annual Scott Sexton Memorial event and Mike Marlar of Winfield, Tenn. would be victorious and claim the $10,052 to win event. 

Marlar’s victory was his sixth career Spring Nationals triumph, which tops the Spring Nationals all-time win list and was his first since winning the Spring Nationals event at Dixie Speedway on May 28, 2016. Marlar would drive the Ronnie Delk owned Delk Equipment, RS Trading Company, Midwest Sheet Metal, Sunoco Race Fuels sponsored #157 Rocket Chassis, Cornett Race Engines powered entry.

Michael Chilton would take the race lead at the drop of the green flag, with Mike Marlar, Chris Madden, Jimmy Owens, and Shanon Buckingham giving chase. Chilton would open up a bit of a lead until he began to work slower traffic on lap 9 and Marlar would close in on Chilton. The pair would battle side-by-side for the lead on lap 14 with Marlar dealing Chilton a slide-job for the lead in turn two on lap 15, however Chilton would return the favor in turn four barely have the lead at the line. Marlar’s second attempt for the lead would be successful as he would take the top spot from Chilton on lap 16 with a turn four pass.

As the field saw the halfway signal, Marlar would begin to drive away from the pack somewhat, while Chris Madden would begin to battle with Michael Chilton for the runner-up position. As Marlar continued to pull away, Chilton and Madden would wage war for the second position, with Madden finally winning the battle on lap 37. As Madden would try to reel in Marlar, Jimmy Owens would close in on Chilton for third and that pair would battle in traffic over the finally few laps, while Dale McDowell would creep up on both drivers and pass them for third in final couple of laps. Marlar would claim the victory in the caution-free event, with Madden finishing in second, and McDowell scoring the third position. Owens and Chilton would complete the top five. The remainder of the top ten would be Donald McIntosh, Shanon Buckingham, Eric Wells, Kyle Hardy, and Brandon Sheppard.

Richards Best In Steel Valley 50 at Sharon Speedway April 21, 2017

Richards Best In Steel Valley 50 at Sharon Speedway

HARTFORD, OH (April 21, 2017) – Josh Richards was victorious in the first ever appearance by the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series on Friday night at Sharon Speedway. Richards took the lead from Scott Bloomquist on lap four and withstood the challenges of both Brandon Sheppard and Gregg Satterlee to take the win in the Steel Valley 50.

“I can’t thank the track staff enough for trying to get the track raceable for the feature. It was tough on the drivers and especially the cars; I know they had put new dirt on the track, but with the rain they had the last couple of days, that didn’t help. We raced as hard as we could to put on a show for these fans. It feels good to come out on top,” said Richards in Lucas Oil Victory Lane for the third time this season.

Bloomquist led the first three laps of the race before yielding the lead to Richards. Sheppard then moved into second and started to challenge Richards for the lead. Satterlee picked up steam and sprinted around Sheppard for second on lap 17. Satterlee tracked down Richards and the two ran side-by-side for a while until Richards pulled away from him.

Sheppard managed to regain the second spot on lap 38 from Satterlee. Sheppard then spent the final 12 laps pursuing Richards. Sheppard was turning faster laps than Richards on several occasions, but Richards held his line and held a steady lead until the finish.

“I was trying to move around a lot in the final laps. As a driver, it’s mentally challenging. We are going to have to go through these cars from front to back for tomorrow at Hagerstown. The crews work very hard during the week to get these cars ready. Thanks to the crowd for coming out tonight, it looked like a big crowd,” said the driver for the Best Performance Motorsports, Dargie Race Engines, Rocket Chassis.

Sheppard tried chasing down the car and team he had driven for the last two years but came up short. “The track finally blew off there a little bit and the racing was good. We dropped back to sixth or seventh early on, but as the race went on, we got stronger and stronger. I would like to thank Mark Richards and Steve Baker from Rocket Chassis, Valvoline, and Seubert Calf Ranches for all of their help.”

The remainder of the top ten were: Alex Ferree, Boom Briggs, Colton Flinner, Dylan Yoder, and Chub Frank.

Mat Williamson Takes Checkers at Lernerville April 21, 2017

Mat Williamson Takes Checkers at Lernerville

Defending champion Mat Williamson looked as if he’d lost nothing in the off season in terms of speed or savvy and was in mid-season form as evidenced by a resounding performance that saw him hold off a hard charging Brian Swartzlander to collect the opening night win.

 
As the cars made their way out onto the speedway, fans couldn’t help but notice a front row consisting of Wiliamson and Rex King Jr.  The two drivers looked primed for a 25 lap duel that would keep fans glued to the edge of their seats.  Williamson bolted out to the early lead followed by King, a strong running Rick Regalski, Jimmy Weller and Brian Swartzlander.   A caution with two laps down slowed the pace and on the restart, Williamson elected to start on the high side where he would get a good jump on the field. On the same restart, Swartzlander slipped and fell back to ninth while Garrett Krummert charged forward from his 10th starting spot to third, winning a three car position battle between himself, Shingledecker and Weller.

Meanwhile, Williamson was putting the field well behind him in clean air when Regalski brought out the caution with nine laps in the books. Once action resumed, Swartzlander was able to slide under King to take the second spot after a two lap door to door battle. Swartzlander was perhaps the only car that looked capable of catching and perhaps passing the leader, and his cause was helped by a lap 14 caution for JR McGinley who stopped on the back stretch.

Williamson was able to drive away in the waning laps after running a few laps with Swartzlander on his doorstep while behind them, to collect his 20th career feature win at Lernerville while Swartzlander took a hard earned second place and King rounded out the podium. Regalski was able to come back from the tail of the field to score a top five finish.

“This place is awesome, it’s one of the best race tracks in the country,” Williamson said. “The surface is the greatest we go to week in and week out and it makes the four hour drive worthwhile. It’s always fun driving here, but they kept me on my toes tonight, they’re great race car drivers and they’ll make you work for it.”
