Jimmy Phelps Wins at Le RPM Speedway September 8, 2018

Jimmy Phelps Wins at Le RPM Speedway

Saint-Marcel-de-Richelieu, QUE – September 8, 2018 – HBR Motorsports veteran driver Jimmy Phelps stole his second win of the season with a late-race pass on defending Champion Matt Sheppard at Le RPM Speedway. After starting eleventh, Phelps picked his way to the front with precision moves and calculated risks. It seemed as though Sheppard would hold him off, but on a restart, Phelps went low and came out ahead of the no. 9s going down the backstretch. For the remaining laps, Phelps made his Modified very wide to prevent the counter attack. Fellow sixth row starter Danny Johnson also had a strong charge to the front and finished in second place. Defending Series Championship Matt Sheppard lead the most laps, but he could not match Phelps’ determination in getting to the front.

 

Two young guns aiming for their first Super DIRTcar Series Championships started on the front row for the 100-lap event. Max McLaughlin started on the pole, while Erick Rudolph took the start on the outside of row one. Rudolph currently sits second in overall Championship points and McLaughlin rides in third. As it would turn out, neither would be in Championship form on the tricky Le RPM Speedway. McLaughlin immediately lost the lead to Rudolph and faded deep into the top 10. After taking the lead, Rudolph was soon swallowed up by Matt Sheppard, who looked to have the car to beat.

From then on Matt Sheppard kept the field in check on long green-flag runs. Unfortunately for Sheppard, his car needed a few laps to come alive and a lap 90 caution flag resulted in a restart he could not recover from.

“I just wasn’t that good after cautions. It took me a few laps to get rolling. I feel like we were rolling pretty good there before that lap 90 caution. Every time we go green I felt like it was on ice for two or three laps and unfortunately that was enough for Jimmy to get by me.”

Sheppard defended against charges from Steve Bernard and Danny Johnson, but failed to hold off Jimmy Phelps. Phelps was proud to get a win at Le RPM Speedway but even he knows there is room for improvement: “One thing I don’t think I did as good as them was run the middle to the top, but I could get a good run on the bottom in turns one and two. We were just really fortunate to make some really good moves. We didn’t feel really that good early and made a bunch of changes. We made some shock changes and set-up changes and tire changes. The guys worked their tails off over there. It’s good to finally get a win here. We had podiums both years and it seems like we always played bridesmaid so it feels good to finally get one.”

Danny Johnson drove all the way to the front from the 12th starting spot, right along side race winner Jimmy Phelps. Johnson has had great finishes since jumping back into a Troyer chassis and racing for Ray Graham. Despite the strong run, Danny Johnson is never satisfied with anything but a win. “It was really great. We came up a little bit short today, but I’m really proud of my team for giving us the opportunity to come here today and run as good as we did.”

Jimmy Owens Wins World 100 Prelim at Eldora Speedway September 6, 2018

Jimmy Owens Wins World 100 Prelim at Eldora Speedway

The Biggest Dirt Race In The World, the 48th annual World 100 commenced with the first of two Prelim Nights at the famed ½ (0.500) mile high-banked dirt oval of Eldora Speedway (OH), located just east of the Indiana/Ohio state line in Rossburg, Ohio on Thursday, September 6th. The first of three full nights of racing for the “Granddaddy of them all” featured the popular “Every Lap Matters” format highlighted by twin 25-lap features paying $10,000 to win each. An even 100 cars were in the pits and a pair of former Globe winners stood in victory lane at the end of a very long evening that had two rain delays totaling over five hours with the final checkered flag falling at 3:53a.m.

In the Even Feature, 2007 World 100 winner, Jimmy Owens, also one of just seven drivers to have won both tracks’ crown jewel events, the World 100 and the Dirt Late Model Dream, started on the pole and made no mistake the entire race in his #20 Ramirez Motorsports / Rocket XR1 Chassis / Durham Racing Engines ride. The Newport, TN veteran fended off consistent strong challenges from another former World 100 winner, Brian Birkhofer (2002 & 2012) to secure his second Prelim Night Feature victory of his career to move into the 46-year-old into five-way tie for second all-time in that category.

“We had a good car all night long except for Qualifying. I don’t know what I did there, but we missed it real bad. But in the heats, we were good, a couple of things went our way. Then we made a couple of changes for the Feature and we had a good hot rod.” Offered Owens in victory lane. “I felt like I could run through the middle of the race track a lot better than when I was going around the top. You could get some good momentum off the corners by just touching that right rear up in the stuff.” He added.

It would be Owens and Birkhofer leading the field to the green flag for the Even Feature and it was Owens rocketing out to the front of the field. Now a two-time and reigning DIRTcar Summer Nationals Champion, Brian Shirley slipped past Birkhofer for second from his fourth starting spot and tried to pressure Owens who held the point. Owens would keep a safe piece of real estate between himself and Shirley as the second-place driver was being pressured himself from Birkhofer who was looking to reclaim the runner-up spot.

With nine laps to go, Birkhofer got past Shirley and set his sights on Owens for the race lead. He was able to get close but couldn’t quite muster up a charge as Owens would hang on to lead all 25 laps for the $10,00 paycheck. Birkhofer settled

for second as Zack Dohm, who started 12th, completed the podium finishers in third. Shirley fell back to fourth as Tim McCreadie completed the top five. Two-time and defending race winner, Jonathan Davenport started 14th and came through with a sixth place showing while Chad Simpson, Jimmy Mars, Chris Ferguson and 2006 World 100 winner, Earl Pearson Jr., would finish off the top 10.

Brandon Overton Wins Hillbilly 100 September 2, 2018

Brandon Overton Wins Hillbilly 100

MIDDLEBOURNE, W.V. (September 2, 2018) – Brandon Overton won the richest one-day prize in dirt late model racing history, capturing the 50th Annual General Tire Hillbilly Hundred at Tyler County Speedway on Sunday night.

The 27-year-old took the lead from home-state favorite, Jared Hawkins on lap 70 and led the rest of the way to the $50,000 payday. Hawkins managed to hold off Mason Zeigler for second. Zeigler came home in third with Jimmy Owens and Gregg Satterlee completing the top five drivers.

Overton received congratulations from his crew after a hard-earned victory as he entered Lucas Oil Victory Lane. “I can’t quite shaking. We just had the worst two nights of racing I think I have ever had. Last week at Mansfield we didn’t even make the race. It’s just a miserable feeling. We ran some regional races and did pretty good and we thought we were going to come up here and show everybody what we are made of. We got beat down pretty quick. There are just different parts of the country where you need to race different. Last night we were about to get lapped and to come back tonight and win, this is great.”

“I am glad to have the support of everybody behind me. I am thankful for Billy Franklin for giving me this opportunity. Billy hasn’t said one thing. We have run terrible the last two nights and hasn’t said nothing. That’s why I love to drive for him. I would rather be on the upside than the downside with this deal. I didn’t know what was going to happen after the Dream, but it couldn’t have ended up any better than it has,” Overton added.

Hawkins, who had the capacity crowd rooting for him, nearly pulled off the win. “Early on in the race I was just feeling out the car and where I could run it best. I just tried to maintain a good pace and take care of my stuff. I was just trying to be there at the end. I guess I needed to move up on him [Overton]. He just got up on the wheel and got it done. I love racing with these Lucas Oil guys. It’s a lot of fun to do that. Thanks to all of the fans for coming out and thanks to Tim Logan for giving me a shot at driving his car.”

Zeigler, who currently leads the Rookie of the Year chase, came home in third. “I didn’t do well in qualifying and it put us behind. I think if we would have started up front we would have been even better. It is what it is. I am happy for those two guys who ran up front. Congratulations to Brandon on the win. It was good to see the top three being Rocket Chassis. Brandon was really good. I think we could have run second. I got up on Jared [Hawkins], but that was about it.”

The winner’s Rocket Chassis is powered by a Vic Hill Racing Engine and sponsored by: Franklin Enterprises, BCI Asphalt, Textron Off-Road, Big Dog Tree and Stump, R.W. Powell Construction, Franklin Fence Company, Big A’s Custom Graphics, Bozard Ford Lincoln, and Wade’s Body Shop.

Completing the top ten finishers were Tyler Erb, Jonathan Davenport, Scott Bloomquist, Don O’Neal, and Dennis Erb Jr.
