Tim McCreadie Steals the Spotlight at the Big Show June 27, 2017

Tim McCreadie Steals the Spotlight at the Big Show

MALTA, NY – June 27, 2017 – Larry Wight took the lead from Stewart Friesen on a lap 74 restart, but Tim McCreadie pounded the cushion to go from fourth to the lead on lap 77. McCreadie then led the final 23 laps of Brett Hearn’s Big Show 9 to claim the $10,000 winner’s share at Albany-Saratoga on Tuesday night. It was McCreadie’s first win since he won at The Dirt Track at Charlotte in November 2011.

Friesen took second and Matt Sheppard took third from Larry Wight when he jumped the cushion late in the race and had to settle for fourth. Hearn rounded out the top-five.

“I’ve been trying to run this race for a while and take some of Brett’s money,” McCreadie said, tongue-in-cheek following his first Super DIRTcar Series win since 2011. “He always makes more than us and it’s nice to take $10,000 from him once and a while.”

Wight started on the front row with Max McLaughlin for the 100-lap Feature. Wight drove his No.99L to the point position at the drop of the green flag while Stewart Friesen raced into second from the third starting spot.

McCreadie was quickly on the move from his sixth starting spot and used the same outside lane to take second from Friesen at lap 17. Twenty laps in, Wight found his way into heavy lapped traffic as the race stayed green. At lap 22, Friesen took second back from McCreadie while Wight was able to race freely through the traffic.

Friesen caught the leader on lap 42 and passed Wight to take over the lead on lap 46. Friesen held the point just as the first caution of the race waved at lap 50 when Rich Scagliotta got turned around in turn two.

When the race restarted on lap 59, Friesen held off Wight’s charge while Sheppard took third from McCreadie. The top-five maintained their spots, with Hearn in fifth, until the second and final caution at lap 68.

The final restart with 74 laps complete produced all the action at Wight retook the lead from Friesen in the outside lane while McCreadie made his move from fourth to second before taking the lead three laps later.

“I couldn’t really hit the bottom at all and when we had cold tires we could roll the middle pretty well,” Wight said. “It seemed to be that if we got too much heat in the right-rear, the car went away on us. I don’t know if it was me being too hard on it or if we just need to do a little more work on the car itself to get it to run with that hot tires.”

Before Wight could worry about getting too much heat in the right-rear tire, McCreadie used the outside lane to drive to the lead.

“I just got lucky,” McCreadie said in Victory Lane. “Those guys were hunting the bottom and I had been up there banging the cushion for probably 70 laps and I just figured the only shot I had was to try and go in above it into (turn) one and it happened to stick. It could have easily went the other way, but we’re happy tonight.”

With eight laps to go, Wight jumped the cushion while running second and fell to fourth as both Friesen and Sheppard raced past him. Friesen caught McCreadie over the final five laps, but couldn’t get close enough to regain the top spot for the win.

“Our Halmar car was good on the long run, which is cool,” Friesen said. “It’s something we haven’t really had all year. Second to a guy like that, I mean there aren’t too many guys that can run a curb like that and put it where he needed. We’ll take a good second. We had a great long run car and it was good. I’m proud of everybody.”

“I didn’t know how many laps were left, but I saw him poke (the nose) once or twice,” McCreadie said of Friesen’s late challenge. “It was really kind of dusty once you caught lapped traffic. It wasn’t that you couldn’t maneuver, I just couldn’t really see through the center of the corner to put my right-rear on the cushion so it slowed my entry down and my whole corner down.”

Sheppard held on for a third-place finish, his third straight top-five finish and fifth consecutive top-five result to start the season.

“We had a really good car there in the middle of the race,” Sheppard said. “We really didn’t need that lap 68 caution. I was just rolling by Larry Wight for second and I don’t think anybody wanted to be third on that next restart. Timmy was third on the restart before and that’s how I got by him. Then I got pinned down there and just lost some ground. I started rolling again there at the end, but it was too little too late.”

Wight was happy to earn a top-five finish, but naturally would have preferred to hold on for the win. Mostly, Wight was surprised McCreadie was able to use the outside lane to take the win.

“I never thought anyone could get the top to work with it that far out and as nasty as the cushion was, but he must have been free enough where he could lean on it,” Wight said. “It seemed to be that if I went up there it would pull the nose and the car was a handful up there.”

Erick Rudolph was the 811 Dig Safely New York redraw bonus eligible driver as the eighth starter. He raced to a sixth-place finish in the Feature event. Pat Ward, who raced to an 11th-place finish, was the Pole Position Raceway Fast Qualifier. Series driver Peter Britten received the Speedy First Aid Hard Luck award after he was the first car out of the race at his home track.

Dona Marcoullier Grabs American Ethanol Tour Win at Oakshade June 24, 2017

Dona Marcoullier Grabs American Ethanol Tour Win at Oakshade

Wauseon, Ohio (Saturday, June 24th, 2017): For the first time in the American Ethanol Late Model Tours’ three-year history, the cars and stars ventured outside of the home state of Michigan with their first ever visit to the Buckeye State. The popular 3/8s (0.375) mile semi-banked dirt oval of Oakshade Raceway, located west of Toledo in Wauseon, Ohio served as hosts for the historic first ever Buckeye State appearance for the AELMT for the running of the Growth Energy 40. When the checkered flag flew, it would be the AELMT winning the battle over the AELMT all-time high 50-car field with the state of Michigan sweeping the top five spots led by defending AELMT Champion and current points leader, Dona Marcoullier winning his second in a row and third of the first four AELMT races of 2017.

“This is awesome. I love this place. I came down here about 10 years ago and in my first ever Feature, I won the dang thing. We came down here in 2013 and ran the full deal and were able to win the Championship.” The elated Houghton Lake, Michigan standout stated in victory lane standing next to his #6m Northside Towing & Service/Rocket XR1 Chassis/Rhyne Competition Engines machine. “I don’t know man, I just love the people, love the place, love the racetrack, I mean, this place has got the greatest fans. What a year! I can’t thank the American Ethanol Late Model Tour enough for this series. This is flat out the best in this area in Michigan, Ohio and Indiana.” The 32-year-old added.

After the Redraw of the top two finishers of the five heat races needed, QuickCar Racing Products Rookie points leader, Matt Shipley and Swanton, Ohio’s Rob Anderzack leading the stacked field to Chief Starter, Adam Matthews Sr.’s green flag. Shipley would utilize his 525 Chevrolet Performance Crate motor powered by Ethanol E85 to the race lead for the first four laps until the lone caution waved on lap four. On the restart, 2016 AELMT Rookie of the Year, Travis Stemler, who started third at the green and restarted in second, darted past on lap five. He brought Dona Marcoullier, who started next to him in the second row, with him and just a lap later, Marcoullier careened around the outside to grab the lead for himself.

Marcoullier would set sail the rest of the way and while picking through traffic, Ryan VanderVeen, who had never won in the AELMT but has an impressive three second place finishes and five third place showings, began to slowly reel in the race leader. However, VanderVeen couldn’t quite get to Marcoullier’s back bumper as the defending tour champion kept plenty of real estate between himself and VanderVeen to go on and win his third AELMT Feature in four starts in 2017 and his eighth career AELMT triumph. The most all-time in the tours’ brief three-year history.

VanderVeen would settle for second for the fourth time of his AELMT career while ISKY Racing Cams Fast Qualifier, Brandon Thirlby wrapped up the podium finishers. Eric Spangler finished in fourth with Stemler completing the top five for a Great Lakes State clean sweep of the first five finishers in the tour’s first ever appearance in the Buckeye State. Steve Kester led the Oakshade/Ohio contingent with a sixth place showing while two-time defending track champion, Brian Ruhlman was seventh over current track points leader, Devin Shiels, 2015 AELMT Champion, Rich Neiser and Canadian invader, Andrew Reaume finished off the top 10 after starting 21st.

Jordan Watson Goes Wire to Wire at Delaware International

The NAPA Big Block Modified heats were a prelude to the 25-lap feature with Jordan Watson and Jamie Mills picking up the wins. Watson would start the main in third but shot by Brandon Watkins and Dale Hawkins to lead lap one.

By the second circuit Mills had blasted from ninth to fifth. One lap later he shot by both Brandon and Bobby Watkins for the third spot behind Hawkins. Hawkins put up a good fight until lap eight when Mills moved by.

JoJo Watson had gotten by H.J. Bunting to crack the top five and was up to fourth by halfway. Matt Jester, who started in tenth followed into fifth. Jordan wasn’t letting up and had built a 7.5 second lead when the first caution flew on lap 15 when Brandon Watkins slowed.

On the restart Jester was able to get around Hawkins for fourth and once again Jordan opened a 3.5 second lead over Mills and his brother JoJo. The final yellow was out with five to go when Howard O’Neal came to a stop. As Jordan Watson again pulled away on the restart, JoJo Watson went to work on Mills taking second with three to go. That’s how they would finish with Jordan getting his first win of the season and his brother JoJo second. Third went to Mills with Jester fourth and Hawkins fifth.

Max Blair Defends Home Turf at McKean County Raceway June 20, 2017

Max Blair Defends Home Turf at McKean County Raceway

SMETHPORT, P.A.— June 20, 2017— Max Blair defended his home state by maneuvering his way to his first-ever World of Outlaws Craftsman® Late Model Series win at McKean County Raceway in Smethport, PA during the Hamlin Lake 50.

The Pennsylvania-native was joined in Victory Lane by a fan club of family and friends who rushed the track for the celebration. After embracing the moment under a shower of confetti, Blair was seemingly at a loss for words trying to describe his first Outlaw win.

“I never would’ve dreamed this would have happened to me,” said Blair. “I don’t even know what to say. I am so pumped up. We destroyed our car a couple of weeks ago and we’ve been working really hard this week to get this thing turned around and ready. We were pretty excited to come here tonight but I didn’t really know what to expect. I can’t believe it. I really can’t.”

Blair started second in the feature and was able to pass pole-sitter, Morgan Bagley, on lap 16 for the lead. The pair battled earlier in the evening during the heat race but at that time Bagley was able to fend off Blair’s charges to win his first heat of the season.

Devin Moran was next to find his way to Bagley’s door and then around him by lap 31. Moran then showed how powerful his Tye Twarog/ DMR machine was by steadily reeling in leader, Blair.

“This is our first time here and to get a top-five is pretty good,” said Moran. “We have to keep working. I feel like we had the best car out there all night but Max did a good job. I have to give him props.”

By the time the checkers fell, Blair only held .987 over Moran. The two had the fastest cars during qualifying followed by Brandon Sheppard who coincidentally rounded out the podium.

“For starting fifth on a track that is pretty hard to pass on we will take a top three tonight and go on to Lernerville where we have three nights there,” said Sheppard. “That seems like a pretty fun track.
