Shirley Scores First Victory This Season

FARMER CITY, IL— April 2, 2017— Brian Shirley must have blown out the candles on his birthday cake this morning and wished for a win because tonight at Farmer City Raceway he claimed his first World of Outlaws Craftsman® Late Model Series victory of the season at the Illini 100. “I am just happy,” said Shirley. “I am happy for my team. We’ve had a lot of solid runs this year and we’ve had some heart breaks so for this to pay off for Bob Cullen, Lisa Cullen and everyone behind us we appreciate it. The biggest thing is that that we get monkey off our back with [this win] and hopefully there’s more to come.” To take the lead Shirley had to out-duel three-time World of Outlaws Champion and five-time Farmer City Raceway winner, Billy Moyer as well as regional all-stars Shannon Babb and Bobby Pierce. For the fans the race between the bunch was a flashback to the good ole days of the DIRTcar Summer Nationals. During the final day of the two-day event, Moyer showed that he remained hungry for a win and unsatisfied with the previous night’s third place finish as he claimed the fastest time in his qualifying group, a heat win and drew the pole position for the feature event. Moyer started the feature next to Pierce and punched the gas as soon as the green flag fell over Farmer City to claim the lead early in the race. By lap-two Babb found his way past Pierce and by lap-nine he was at Moyers door knocking. Pierce trailed behind the pair working tirelessly to reel them in. By lap-15 it was a battle for the lead between the three as almost every lap around the track fans saw three-wide action. Shirley found himself in the mix for the podium positions and the atmosphere at Farmer City cranked up a notch. It was lap-22 that was a game changer in the race as Pierce and Babb fell off the backstretch ledge losing a little momentum in the process. Shirley capitalized with a run on the bottom of the racetrack to pass Moyer for the lead. As the two front runners ran into lap traffic Shirley was able to hold off a hard-charging Moyer and take the checkers. It was a big day for Shirley and his crew as they snagged Quick Time, won a heat and finished one position ahead of Moyer for the second night in a row. “We tried and we about got him. We just came up a little short,” said Moyer. “This place always does a good job and puts on a good race and come main event time it’s always a multi-groove deal. Brian could run around that bottom better obviously and he did a good job. We camped out there in the middle and did the best we could do.” The final podium position went to Pierce. “It was a fun race I just wish it went the other way,” said Pierce. “It was a really good race between all of us. A lot of sliders a lot of crowds just wish we really could have got it but oh well. I didn’t even know Brian was going to be in the hunt there. He just kind of snuck up.” Tyler Erb and Brandon Sheppard also were seen wheeling-and-dealing on the track as they each gained eight positions during the 25-laps. For more news visit www.woolms.com
Sheppard Leads Green To Checkers At Farmer City Raceway April 1, 2017

Sheppard Leads Green To Checkers At Farmer City Raceway

FARMER CITY, IL— April 1, 2017— During night one of the two day show at Farmer City Raceway for the World of Outlaws Craftsman® Late Model Series Illini 100 event, Brandon Sheppard held on to the lead from green to checkers. That’s also how the feature played out with no cautions during the 75-lap event.

Sheppard has had his eyes set on Farmer City Raceway since the start of the season and the results from tonight’s event puts the cherry on top for the young driver. Not only did he defeat the stacked field during the feature, he also set the fastest lap on the track during qualifying, placed second in his heat race and pulled the pole position during the redraw.

Earlier in the day Sheppard said, “It would mean a lot to me and this team if we won tonight. We only have one Outlaw race on the year and there has been a different winner at every track this year so to be the first repeat winner would be awesome.”

Sheppard is now the first repeat driver of the 2017 season with six different drivers appearing in Victory Lane during the first six races of the season. Billy Moyer was trying to continue the trend by becoming the seventh different driver to win as he tirelessly tried to reel in Sheppard for 70 laps of the Feature. Moyer has three Illini 100 wins in the bank but he couldn’t pull it off for the fourth time as he continued to get hung up by lap traffic. Brian Shirley used the lap traffic to his advantage as he was able to pass Moyer to claim the second position within the last five laps.

“We had a pretty good car but honestly we just really needed a caution,” said Shirley. “I think if we would of had a caution we would of had a good chance to win but at the end of the day you can always say what ifs but we’ll take it. I feel like we’ve had a lot of bad luck as well as some good runs and have been pretty fast so maybe it will help us build momentum. Like with Brandon [Sheppard] and [his team], momentum builds success, so if we can keep running good then hopefully a win will come.”

Gaining momentum and remaining consistent seems to come naturally for the Rocket1 team as they continue to remain in the lead of the Series Points Standings ever since the conclusion of DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park.

“We have a good balance that I’m comfortable with which is why we can be so consistent and run at different tracks and still be fast,” said Sheppard. “It also makes like a little easier when you start on the pole. I honestly can’t be more happy with how we are running lately. I just go out there and do the best I can every day.”

Sheppard and Shirley weren’t the only Illinois-natives making moves on their home turf. Shannon Babb and Bobby Pierce found their way through the field fairly easily as Babb passed nine cars to claim a top-five finish from a 14th start and Pierce passed thirteen cars to finish sixth from a 19th start.

Timothy Culp Grabs First Series Win March 26, 2017

Timothy Culp Grabs First Series Win

KILGORE, TX— March 26, 2017— Timothy "Hollywood" Culp etched his name in the book of World of Outlaws Craftsman® Late Model Series Winners with his victory at LoneStar Speedway. Of the six races this season, the Series has seen six different drivers win.

Culp got a taste of Victory Lane two nights earlier when the Series visited Whytnot Motorsports Park where he finished second behind Brandon Sheppard.

The Rocket Chassis that took him to Victory Lane in Texas has only hit the track three-times. Culp and his new ride have found their way to the podium all three times, racking up one second-place finish and two wins.

“Wow is all I can say,” said Culp. “To be able to run with these guys is amazing let alone win. It’s exceeded all of my expectations. As soon as we unloaded [this car] brand new it’s been a rocket. It’s lived up to its name. It’s been unreal really, for a guy like me to come out here and be able to run with the Outlaws. A World of Outlaws win is crazy. It’s going to take a few days for this one to sink in.”

Culp didn’t have a smooth sail to Victory Lane, as 2017 Rookie of the Year contender Devin Moran held on to the lead from green until lap 25 of the 40 lap Feature. Moran had the best run of his Outlaw career tonight at LoneStar Speedway as he won his heat, pulled the pole position, and had the second fastest car of the night during qualifying.

“It’s awesome to get out here and get a podium finish and hopefully we can keep the ball rolling next week,” said Moran. “I wanted [my first win] to be tonight because of where we started but it is what it is.”

The toughest heartbreak of the night went to Texas-native, Morgan Bagley. Bagley brought out the guns in Texas as he found his way to Sheppard’s door during the Feature knocking for the final position on the podium. The pair ran door-to-door for several laps but with only laps six to go Bagley got a left rear flat. He decided that instead of changing his tire, which would cause him to head to the back of the field, that he would stay in fourth and give it a whirl. Come the checkers he had fallen back to the 19th position.

With Bagley’s hometown being only 15-minutes from LoneStar Speedway there was a fair share of “MoBags” gear in the crowd and he sure put on a show for his fans as he had his best run of the season.

Although Bagley gave it his best shot, it was Sheppard who held on tight to the third position. The current points leader couldn’t help but smile in Victory Lane as he knew what was in store next for the World of Outlaws. His home track, Farmer City Raceway.

Covert Takes Checkers at Port Royal Speedway March 25, 2017

Covert Takes Checkers at Port Royal Speedway

PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Polesitter Jason Covert took the lead at the start of the super late model main trailed by fourth starter Dylan Yoder on the first lap after Yoder made a two-car pass to get the spot.

Covert held sway with Yoder trying time after time to get into a position that could net him control but it took a restart on the 13th lap to get him the point.

He used the restart to bolt around Covert and take control before getting away with the lead.

However his mount began puffing smoke of some sort as he held the lead and that smoke turned terminal with nine laps to go when it forced him to roll to a stop on the track, wiping out a 2.119 second lead and handing over the point to third starter Kenny Moreland.

Moreland had wrestled second from Gary Stuhler on the 23rd lap with Covert having fallen back to fourth.

Covert got around Stuhler for second as he began to rebound with eight laps to go but as the race wore on to the finish it seemed that Covert was just too far away to make a serious bid for the win.

With two laps to go it still looked that way but just after taking the white flag Covert found enough muscle to pull alongside Moreland as the pair hit the first corner however Moreland had enough momentum to roll back into weak control in the second corner.

But Covert wasn’t done yet and he used the last two corners to race to Moreland’s inside again and the pair exited the fourth corner in a furious race to the finish with Covert edging ahead to the line, taking the win by an amazing .182 seconds.

Moreleand was second followed by Stuhler, Mike Lupfer and Gregg Satterlee.

Sixth through 10th went to Coleby Frye, Rick Singleton, Nick Dickson, Jeff Rine and Trent Brenneman.

Heats for the 32 late models went to Covert, Stuhler, Moreland in a last to first performance, and Yoder. Tim Wilson scored the consolation race.

King Conquers Mod Tour March 25, 2017

King Conquers Mod Tour

(Mercer, PA March 25, 2017): Rex King, Jr. dominated the 35 lap Chiller Thriller for the BRP Modified Tour at Mercer Raceway Park. It was the second year in a row that he claimed the first win at the Park.

Also taking his second victory in the opening event was Joel Watson in the UEMS Modifieds. Mike Pegher, Jr. and Max Blair fought to the finish in the Crate Late Model race, bringing back fond memories of their younger days when they were arch rivals at the Park. Rusty Martz was back in command in the Open Stock Cars.

For King, Jr. everything came together. “We had a good starting spot, the first half of the field took right off. I’ve raced here enough over the years, that I knew what I had to do.” He explained that he had to be cautious working past the lapped cars. “I was trying to keep it clean in traffic. This is a tight place, you never know what can happen.” In conclusion, he gave props to his crew, led by his brother, Russell, who was competing this night in the Crate Late Model division. “I haven’t touched the cars all winter. I’ve been too busy making babies and working, and trying to grow the business,” he said with a laugh.

Tyler Willard and Brad Rapp held the front row starting positions, with Rex King, Jr. and Randy Chrysler behind them. At the drop of the green, the leaders were side by side as they entered turn one, Slowly, Rapp began to edge ahead of Willard as they raced down the back stretch. His lead was short lived, however, as a caution in turn three for a multi-car crash stopped the action. Some heavy hitters were involved, including multi-time series champion, Rex King, Sr., former track champion, Lonnie Riggs, Mat Williamson, Mike Bowman, and defending series champion, Erick Rudolph. Only Bowman was eliminated from further competition.

On the restart, Rapp pulled away from the pack, but King Jr. was on the move into the second spot.

On lap three, King dove low into the third turn, and he powered into the lead. Cooter held control the rest of the way, despite two interruptions that wiped out his comfortable margin.

With King deftly negotiating lapped traffic, the battle was on for the second position. Rapp held it until lap 10, when Randy Chrysler came off the inside of turn four to take the position away. Rapp continued to dog the popular New Yorker the rest of teh way, but he could not regain the spot.

Behind them, J.R. McGinley and Garrett Krummert were getting after one another for the fourth spot.

Meanwhile, Rex King, Sr. and Erick Rudolph were working their way to the front, coming back from that early shunt in turn three. In the waning laps of the race, Rudolph slipped ahead of both Krummert and McGinley to snare the fourth spot.

At the checkers, it was King Jr. by two seconds over Chrysler. Rapp, Rudolph, and McGinley rounded out the top five. McGinley was the highest finishing Mercer Raceway Park regular. Krummert, King Sr., Rick Regalski, Lonnie Riggs, and Tyler Willard completed the top ten.

The heat race winners were Tom Glenn, Rudolph, and Riggs. There was no B Main, as all 27 cars were allowed to take the green.
