Jimmy Mars Goes Back-to-Back at Scheffler Memorial August 28, 2016

Jimmy Mars Goes Back-to-Back at Scheffler Memorial

The slick smooth surface of Oshkosh Speedzone Raceway suited Jimmy Mars as he lived up to being the “Ice Man” in front of the home town Wisconsin fans. While early leaders Dave Eckrich and Chris Simpson battled up front to take the prize back to Iowa, Mars who started 7th was working his way to the front of the field of Corn Belt Clash Hot Rods. Before long he passed Chris Simpson who looked to have another victory in sight. Jimmy Mars worked the heavy traffic that the caution less feature produced and won his second straight George Scheffler Memorial.

The racing was exciting throughout the field with all competitors battling for every position. Chris Simpson held on for 2nd with Mitch McGrath on his tail to grab 3rd place. Chad Simpson started 11th and worked his way around the maze of traffic to take 4th and Nick Anvelink rounded out the top 5.

Justin Haers Returns To Victory At The Land of Legends August 27, 2016

Justin Haers Returns To Victory At The Land of Legends

CANANDAIGUA, NY – ”After we had problems at Rolling Wheels with my regular car, my crew kept pestering me to ‘get the red car out’. I was saving that car for the year end shows. But here we are now,” commented an elated Justin Haers in victory lane at Canandaigua Motorsports Park. Haers piloted the retro looking Billy Taylor-Doug Hoffman number 1, the same car he drove at last year’s SDW in Syracuse.

The 35-lap DIRTcar Modified feature was full of surprises. Tommy Keyes took the lead from his outside pole position. The feature was only two laps old when track points leader Matt Sheppard’s car dug its nose into the track going into the third turn and began flipping wildly. He emerged uninjured, but his number 9s was badly damaged. During this yellow Danny Johnson pitted and did not return to the race.

Keyes would lose the lead to Tim Fuller on lap seven. Fuller then began to pull away and looked to have the race under control. The yellow flew on lap 12, when Dave Rauscher had a drive shaft break and slam his leg. Crews were on the scene quickly, but Rauscher was able to walk to the ambulance.

Fuller’s race would also come to an end, as he lost a right front wheel going into the third turn. This left the lead to Haers.

Haers would lead the remainder of the distance. Gary Tomkins tried to run down Haers but had to settle for second. Billy Decker, Alan Johnson and Peter Britten rounded out the top five. “It was a real workout tonight,” added Haers. “But all-in-all it was a great night.”

Gustin Goes To Victory Lane at 81 Speedway August 21, 2016

Gustin Goes To Victory Lane at 81 Speedway

PARK CITY, Kan.— Sunday night at the 81 Speedway, Ryan Gustin took the lead on the second lap of the main event and then held on through a green-white-checkered finish to capture his sixth United States Modified Touring Series victory of 2016.

It was the first win during the Hunt for the USMTS Casey’s Cup powered by S&S Fishing & Rental for the two-time USMTS national champion, and the 77th of his career.

Cade Dillard earned his series-best seventh Sybesma Graphics Pole Award during the fourth of five heat races for the 42 entries, and then redrew the number one spot to set the pace for the 42-lap feature.

The first lap ended with Dillard edging Gustin at the line by a nose with Brock Bauman tucked in tight behind the lead duo in third.

The next time around Gustin blasted into the lead around the outside of Dillard and he never trailed again, racing to a $3,000 payday.

Dillard stayed close behind Gustin until the race’s second yellow flag came out with 27 laps complete. While under caution, Dillard’s ignition system failed and he was forced to watch the remainder of the race from the pits.

Jason Hughes, who won the first USMTS race at C. Ray Hall’s speedplant in 2008, assumed the second spot but was never able to challenge Gustin for the lead.

Even a final caution period with two laps remaining was no help to the current points leader as he used every trick in his bag to hold off Johnny Scott for the thrilling final two times around.

Jesse Sobbing and Zack VanderBeek were also in the mix with Hughes and Scott, finishing fourth and fifth, respectively, while Rodney Sanders rebounded from a second-lap flat tire to claw his way back to sixth.

VanderBeek, who finished fifth after starting 24th, garnered the KSE Racing Products Hard Charger Award.

Tanner Mullens, Joe Duvall, Scott Drake and Dan Powers completed the top ten.

Cosner Continues To Roll At Bedford August 20, 2016

Cosner Continues To Roll At Bedford

 Matt Cosner continued his  hot 2016 season with a win in the special Friday night at Bedford.  The 30 lap victory, his fourth of the year, was worth $2500, and he remains the only Late Model driver with multiple 2016 wins at the track.  In other action, Lou Wannyn took his third Semi Late win, Jonathan Taylor took his   fifth EMod win and Wayne Brenize took his fourth 4 Cylinder event.
 
    Gene Knaub shot by pole sitter Jeff Rine at the start of the Late Model 30 lapper and ran off for the early lead.   Cosner shot by Rine later on the first lap and took off after Knaub.   Cosner had caught and was all over Knaub for the lead by the time the first caution flew for a slowing DJ Troutman on the backstretch on lap 14..
 
     Everyone was poised for the expected battle up front on the restart, but it never materialized as Knaub shot into the pits just as the field came to the restart cone.  Cosner inherited the lead without a fight and took advantage of his fate.   Over the last 11 all green laps, Cosner romped to a huge advantage over the field to score the win.
 
     Dan Angellichio secured second on lap 15 and held off the advances of Andy Haus to secure that spot at the finish, his best Bedford finish ever.   Haus was third, followed by Matt Sponaugle, Jason Schmidt and Matt Parks.  Rine, driving Troy Swindell’s #21 after experiencing motor woes in his regular ride, was seventh.
Haus and Sponaugle won the heats.
 
     In the special time trial session held to set the field, Matt Cosner broke the long standing one lap record when he blistered the track in 18.748 seconds.

Kerr Conquers Brewerton For Second Win of the Season August 19, 2016

Kerr Conquers Brewerton For Second Win of the Season

By DAVE MEDLER

BREWERTON, NY – Tim Kerr out of Picton, Ontario scored his second Tracey Road Equipment DIRTcar Modified win of 2016 Friday night at the Brewerton Speedway.

In the 35 lap feature Kerr, in a brand new car, moved from his 5th starting spot to second on lap 5 and then set his sights on leader Vinnie Vitale. After looking for a way by Vitale, Kerr on lap 13 found the speed he needed on the bottom of the speedway to be scored the new leader. Once out front Kerr would outrun Pat Ward late in the feature for the popular win.

Joe August Jr. would lead the opening two laps of the 35 lap Big Block Modified feature before Vinnie Vitale, using the quick top groove off the speedway, would drive by August on lap 3 to be scored the new leader.

With 5 laps complete, Vitale was still turning quick laps on the top side while a few car lengths behind him Tim Kerr, August, Bower and Matt Hulsizer ran in a tight pack racing for second through fifth before a quick yellow bunched the field up.

At the 10 lap mark, Vitale, Kerr and Bower were in a three-car breakaway race for the lead with Chad Phelps and Hulsizer showing in the top five.

On lap 13, after chasing Vitale lap after lap, Kerr digging on the bottom of the speedway shot into the lead.

With 20 laps showing on the scoring tower Kerr was still showing the way with Vitale, Pat Ward from 12th, Chad Phelps, Bower and Larry Wight from 16th were slugging it out for second through sixth.

Kerr still was setting a quick pace out front with 10 laps to go opening a half-a-second lead. Vitale and Ward ran bumper-to-bumper and side-by-side in an exciting race for second and third. Phelps and Bower still showed on the scoring tower.

On lap 27 Pat Ward moved into second and took off after Kerr. Over the remaining laps Kerr was too quick as he was first under the checkers over Ward. Larry Wight, Vinnie Vitale and Tim Sears Jr. finished third through fifth.
