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.

Von Dohren Takes Forrest Rogers Classic at Grandview August 13, 2016

Von Dohren Takes Forrest Rogers Classic at Grandview

BECHTELSVILLE, PA. . . . Current T.P.Trailers NASCAR 358 Modified point leader Craig VonDohren, the defending Pioneer Pole Building/Forrest Rogers Memorial race winner, gave himself a hefty birthday present when he scored the win in the 50-Lap NASCAR Whelen 358 Modified All-American Racing Series feature event Saturday night at Grandview Speedway. It was the seventh time he claimed victory in the event. VonDohren may have had a comfortable margin over runner-up Mike Gular, but his fourth feature win of the season didn’t come easy for the defending point champion, since he had to deal with heavy lapped traffic on numerous occasions. In addition to the $10,000 top prize he also pocketed $250 in bonus bucks from T.P. Trailers plus $150 in product contingency awards from VP Fuels for running gas along with the Dan’s Deli ½-way hoagie award. The racing activities were sponsored by Pioneer Pole Building and the 46th running of the event was in honor of race founder Forrest Rogers, the late father of current promoter and track owner Bruce Rogers.

Bobby Gunther-Walsh led the first lap of the Modified feature before the red was thrown on the second lap when Tyler Dippel found himself in the backstretch wall with heavy impact. He was shaken up a bit, but walked to the ambulance under his own power. It was still Gunther-Walsh in command on the restart with pressure coming from Brett Kressley, Nate Christman, Ray Swinehart and Justin Grim.

Kressley put the Norm Hansell-owned No. 357 into the lead on the 11th lap restart needed for a multi-car fourth turn tangle. By this time VonDohren, who started 14th, had piloted the PPB/Keith Harring Transportation No. 1C mount to second to challenge the Modified rookie.

By the 18th lap the front five consisting of Kressley, VonDohren, Christman, Mike Gular and Kyle Weiss encountered the back markers that were also racing for positions and did heed the move over flag.

VonDohren used the lap cars to his advantage and took over first on the 19th lap, but one lap later Kressley was back in front as the pair swapped the lead back and forth.

Lap 21 VonDohren moved ahead once again and immediately opened up daylight leaving Kressley, Christman, Gular and Weiss giving chase.

With ten laps to go debris in the first turn brought out the final yellow. VonDohren was still in command when action resumed, but Gular quickly motored past Christman and Kressley and was now second in pursuit of the leader.

It looked like VonDohren was on a rail as the laps wound down and he raced to his 99th career win. Chasing him across the finish line were Gular, Kressley, Ray Swinehart and Jeff Strunk. Rounding out the top ten were Christman, Jared Umbenhauer, Kenny Gilmore, Duane Howard and Weiss.

Phillips Sweeps Junction Motor Speedway Weekend August 13, 2016

Phillips Sweeps Junction Motor Speedway Weekend

McCool Junction, Nebraska (August 13, 2016) - Austin Siebert led the field to the green tonight for the finale of the Lucas Oil MLRA King of the Hill event held this weekend at Junction Motor Speedway in McCool Junction, Nebraska.

Friday's winner Terry Phillips started on the outside pole and immediately jumped to the lead. For the second straight night he wired the field. Saturday's $5,000 victory is the 111th of Phillips' career with the MLRA.

"We always got confidence," stated Phillips. "We just had a little bad luck and just wasn't as good as double zero sometimes. I've been around this long enough to know if you get rolling and hopefully get a little luck on our side, we can get these cars a little faster."

Tad Pospisil, in front of many of his fans put together his best finish with the MLRA this season in second. He moved ahead of Jesse Stovall for second, on a restart with 21 laps to go, in the main event. He hung there for the remainder of the race. Four out of his five finishes finishes were in the top ten, and of those, none were worse than seventh over the past week.

"It's fun to race around our fans here in Nebraska, I'm wore out," commented Pospisil following the feature. "I beat Jesse going down into one. We just had a good drive after that. I didn't have anything for Phillips. I think my tire was going flat there at the end."

Jesse Stovall ran third and wrapped up the week with four top three finishes. Ryan Gustin and Kyle Berck were fourth and fifth.

Vern walked away from the incident under his own power but the car was heavily damaged and required two tow trucks to remove it to the pit area. When the checker finally flew, it was Plymouth driver, Steve Stacy taking top honors for his third win of the season ahead of Rich Boal of Plymouth and Charlie Hanna of Goshen. Nick Pressler led Andrew DeVreese of Mishawaka and Brian Ross of Plymouth while Kevin Sauer of Lakeville, Josh Trammell of Dowling, MI, Scott Ross of Plymouth and Vern Sauer completed the top ten.
