Rex King Jr. Grabs Modified Win at Sharon July 2, 2016

Rex King Jr. Grabs Modified Win at Sharon

(Hartford, OH)…The great stretch of beautiful weather continued on Saturday as Sharon Speedway was able to complete their seventh straight event without a rain out. Fans celebrated the Fourth of July weekend on “Armed Forces Night” witnessing great racing on a fast track. The following drivers were in Hovis Auto & Truck Supply victory lane: Rex King, Jr.-Hovis Auto & Truck Supply DIRTcar Big-Block Modifieds, Joel Watson-Summit Racing Equipment Modifieds, Justin Shea-Lyden/Red Line Oil RUSH Sportsman Modifieds, Mike Clark-Gibson Insurance Agency Stock Cars, Butch Lambert-HTMA/Precise Racing Products Econo Mods, and Joe Campbell-Deforest Used Parts Mini Stocks.

You knew it was only a matter of time before a King broke into Big-Block Modified victory lane at Sharon. And on Saturday night it was Rex King, Jr. with the honors leading all 20 non-stop laps riding the cushion on a fast track to his first win at Sharon since August 8, 2015. Despite his first win, King, Jr. has been consistent in the top five all season long as he extended his Hovis Auto & Truck Supply point lead. The non-stop event time was 6:01.297.

“It hasn’t been so much of a struggle, but just bad starting spots,” said the 25-year-old Bristolville, Ohio racer. “We finally found the front row with a good starting spot and everything worked in our favor tonight. I have to thank all of my guys. They deserve this more than I do. We’ve been struggling for a couple weeks; a lot of that has been driver issues, but we got that fixed tonight I hope. I have to thank all of my sponsors, fans, and my family. My oldest son is going to be mad. This is the first week he’s missed and I win.”

King, Jr. powered around Rob Kristyak on the start for the lead. Dave Murdick started third and drove under and by Kristyak for second racing off turn two on lap two. King, Jr. had a fairly comfortably advantage over Murdick that really didn’t change much until traffic in the final laps that allowed Murdick to close the gap slightly. King, Jr. made the right moves though in traffic to take the checkered flag for his 19th career win by 1.343 seconds in the KMB, Inc.-owned, Jim Brown Specialty Seed/University Hospitals/Reese Services/Professional Heating Systems/Cedar Steel/Mahan Welding & Fab/Schaeffer’s Oil/Cintas Uniform/Arrowhead Transport-sponsored #165.

Murdick’s runner-up was his best finish since his last victory on August 20, 2013. Kristyak’s third was his first top five finish since the 2011 season! Three-time winner, Jimmy Weller II,I went from sixth to fourth on the opening lap and that’s where he’d finish; meanwhile his father Jim passed Tom Glenn on lap nine to finish fifth. Completing the top 10 were Rick Richner, Rex King, Jim Rasey, Rick Regalski, Jr., and Kevin Bolland. After having shoulder surgery, Glenn made his first start since the April 16 opener, and had a top five run going before exiting the event. He was awarded the hard luck and received two pit passes compliments of Hovis. The Wellers swept the heat races.

Stormy Scott Dominates Summersota Nationals June 25, 2016

Stormy Scott Dominates Summersota Nationals

FERGUS FALLS, Minn.—Stormy Scott dominated the first two nights of qualifying at the inaugural Widow Wax Summersota Nationals, and much to the dismay of his fellow racers he got even better Saturday night.

The 26-year-old from Arroyo Hondo, N.M., took the lead from Cade Dillard after the race’s first and only caution on lap 22 and then checked out.

“I knew Cade would probably get a pretty good jump on that restart, but I also knew that if I could get a run down the hill—because I couldn’t take off with him—that I might have a shot,” Scott recalled in victory lane. “I guess I got lucky on that.

“He went in there and did the exact right thing and got on the bottom where there was moisture. I just rolled the outside and got by him.”

Although Scott struggled with lapped traffic at times during the final 50 orbits around the I-94 Speedway, so did most of his pursuers including Johnny Scott who finished in the runner-up spot nearly nine seconds behind his twin brother.

Stormy Scott led the 26-car field to the green but it was Dillard who pulled away at the start and set a torrid pace for the first 22 laps until the yellow flag waved for Clayton Wagamon’s crippled race car.

When the green light came back on, Dillard had Stormy Scott right with him and the two raced side-by-side down the back-stretch with Scott inching ahead at the line to lead lap 23.

That was the last anybody saw of Stormy Scott as he drove away uncontested for the final 50 circuits en route to a $15,000 payday.

“These guys that finished behind me are the best in the country in my opinion,” a smiling Stormy Scott added. “I’m just glad to be standing here.”

The win was the 37th of his United States Modified Touring Series career, breaking a tie on the all-time wins list with Jon Tesch.

Ryan Gustin battled with Johnny Scott for the last half of the race and crossed the finish line third, but was disqualified during post-race technical inspections for an engine setback infraction.

That moved Dillard to third with Jason Hughes and Rodney Sanders completing the top five.

Travis Saurer got sixth, Lucas Schott was seventh, Zack VanderBeek came from 16th to eighth, Jesse Sobbing took the ninth spot and Dereck Ramirez held on for tenth.

Randy Hannagan Tames Limaland for Arctic Cat All Star Victory June 24, 2016

Randy Hannagan Tames Limaland for Arctic Cat All Star Victory

LIMA, Ohio (June 24, 2016) - Randy Hannagan became the sixth different Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions main event winner in the last seven races on Friday night, taming Limaland Motorsports Park in Lima, Ohio, during night seven of Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Cometic Gasket. “The Hurricane” charged ahead from row six on the main event starting grid, ultimately climbing 11 positions in 40 laps, not taking command officially until lap 38 and stealing the show from pole sitter Jamie Veal. The Arctic Cat All Star victory was the first of the 2016 season for Randy Hannagan.

“I’m getting too old to run the top,” Randy Hannagan said in victory lane. “I knew guys were going to run the very top and run the very bottom, so I decided to try the middle. I can’t thank my guys enough for their hard work and support. We’ve got a lot of laps at this track. Feels good to get back to victory lane.”

Randy Hannagan patiently worked his way forward from 12th on the feature grid, utilizing the middle of Limaland’s high banked quarter-mile for most of the distance. The San Jose, California, native, now residing in Pittsboro, Indiana, cracked the top-three by lap 19, igniting a four lap battle with Wooster, Ohio’s Sheldon Haudenschild for second and third in the running order. The pilot of the Ed Neumeister-owned/NAPA Upper Auto/No. 11N worked his way into second permanently by lap 26, resetting his focus on race leader Jamie Veal.

A late race caution on lap 34 stacked the field back together for a final time, putting Hannagan on the back bumper of Veal. Hannagan, still utilizing the middle of the speedway, made his bid for the top spot on lap 38, driving under Veal, who led every lap until that point, just before the flagstand. “The Hurricane” went on to separate himself from the field during the closing circuits, eventually followed by Jamie Veal and Travis Philo at the final checkers. It was Hannagan’s ninth career victory with the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions.

“I want to thank all of the fans for coming out tonight and supporting this race,” said Hannagan. “The All Star officials did a fantastic job keeping this show organized. My team and I are very happy to be here. We’ll head down to Eldora Speedway tomorrow and try this again.”

Jordan Watson Wins 44th Annual Camp Banes Benefit June 22, 2016

Jordan Watson Wins 44th Annual Camp Banes Benefit

By CHARLIE BROWN

DELMAR, DE – A 24-hour weather delay didn’t keep the 44th Annual Camp Barnes Benefit from being a huge success Wednesday night at the Delaware International Speedway. A strong turnout of 118 racers and a great crowd were on hand to watch invaders take home the lion’s share of the healthy purse.

Heat races were all important as the feature fields started heads up from the heat finishes. In the 30-lap Modified feature Bridgeport regular and former track champion, Jordan Watson, driving the Will Brown No. 1w started on the pole with last year’s winner and former track champ, Matt Jester, who was once again running a small block, starting in second.

From the drop of the green, Watson went to the top groove and set the pace. The big crowd got a great introduction to big block regular and division rookie, Carson Wright who followed Watson to the top and kept him in striking distance.

The first of three cautions came out on lap five and on the restart the outside groove continued to be the quickest as Jester took over the second spot behind Watson. By halfway, Watson was working traffic followed by Jester, Wright, Scott VanGorder and Howard O’Neal in the top five.

Two laps later, Clay Tatman rolled to a stop and on the restart Wright was able to regain the second spot. Beau Wilkins climbed into the top five and with five to go the final yellow flew. On the restart the top four remained unchanged while Wilkins and Joseph Watson battled for the fifth spot. Jordan Watson would drive to the $3000 win with Wright ending an impressive run in second. Jester finished in the third spot with VanGorder and Wilkins rounding out the top five. The feature was sponsored by Brett Deyo and the Georgetown Speedway.

Richards Captures Win No. 7 at Weedsport June 21, 2016

Richards Captures Win No. 7 at Weedsport

WEEDSPORT, N.Y. - June 21, 2016 – Josh Richards played tag from the front row Tuesday night at Weedsport Speedway (N.Y.), leaving only five cars on the lead lap of the Finger Lakes 40 in his seventh win of the season.

“I can’t thank my guys enough,” Richards said. “They worked their butts off, and I’m just glad I can put [the car] up front for them.”

Richards, who led the 24-car field into the green flag with his No. 1 Valvoline/ Seubert Calf Ranches Rocket car, held the lead for all 40 laps. Richards won his heat earlier in the night by more than a three-and-a-half second margin, but that gap was unparalleled to how much he pulled away from the pack in the feature.

Richards maintained a similar differential through the first half of the race. The true fight was from spots four through six. Shane Clanton, Rick Eckert and Brandon Overton jockeyed for position within the first 10 laps of the feature, nearly spreading three-wide across the 3/8-mile oval. Overton relied on the top groove early, but soon forfeited the high-side of the track to Clanton, who broke into the top 5 by lap 7.

While Overton continued to fade, Clanton and Eckert chased-down third place Steve Casebolt by lap 21. The trio bunched up, weaving as a unit through lapped traffic. It took a bold move on lap 17 from Clanton’s No. 25 Weldbank Energy/ Coopers Meat Packers Capital machine however to take third. With Clanton’s fender nearly grazing the wall with every lap, he set his sights on second-place Frank Heckenast Jr.

“We were just trying to bide our time and pick our line, and we needed to get by those guys,” Clanton said. “I knew I was better than them biding my time. I knew that Josh [Richards] was long-gone…we needed a caution there at the end to see if I had anything for him. But overall: good night.”

Though Clanton bided his time thereafter, he made his move 11  laps later on Heckenast’s No. 99JR St. Louis U-Pic-A-Part/ Storage Squares Capital car; Heckenast signed with Clanton’s chassis company one month prior. Using the top groove, Clanton built enough momentum to take sole possession of second. Heckenast managed to hold on to the final spot on the podium.

“We’ve had some good runs but just with bad luck,” Heckenast said. “I’m just trying to get the ball rolling, get some confidence back, make good runs, build the bank up and get confidence for my crew guys. We were definitely a third place car. Shane [Clanton] was better than us. But, this place is awesome. I wish we could race at facilities like this every week.”

While the battles ensued, Richards increased his lead exponentially – especially within the final 25 laps of the race. Richards led by more than four seconds with 23 laps remaining, and then increased his lead to more than five seconds four laps later. At that trajectory, Richards’ largest lead was with four laps remaining at 11.116 seconds; he ultimately won by 10.363 seconds over Clanton.

Richards lapped into to top ten with 11 laps remaining. Four laps later, he passed three more drivers. His pursuit to lap the rest of the field fell just short out of the top 5.

“I really didn’t realize [how many drivers I lapped] until at the end when I saw Rick [Eckert] and [Brandon] Overton and glanced up at the board,” Richards said. “I didn’t feel like we were that good but the track was beautiful. That was the most fun track I’ve run on in a long time. They do a phenomenal job here. This is a beautiful place. I remember coming here ten years ago as a rookie and it’s really cool to come back here.”
