Richards Scores Inaugural Series Victory at Carolina Speedway April 29, 2016

Richards Scores Inaugural Series Victory at Carolina Speedway

GASTONIA, N.C. - April 29, 2016 - Josh Richards battled from an eighth place starting position and through tough track conditions and cautions on Friday night at Carolina Speedway as he claimed the inaugural World of Outlaws Craftsman® Late Model Series win at the track.

"We were able to survive," said Richards, who took home the $10,000 purse. "We had a great car there. It was starting to get rough off Turn 4, but I want to thank all the fans for coming out. It's great to come out with a win."

Challenging track conditions proved to be a test for the 24 drivers that started the A-Main - in the 50-lap feature, there were 12 cautions with eight drivers finishing on the lead lap. A caution on Lap 24 allowed drivers to replenish their tear-off visor sheets, making track visibility less of a struggle through the remainder of the race.

Some of those earlier cautions however, made way for Richards to eventually claim the lead position on the restarts. Richards started eighth.

"That was the biggest thing: trying to find a clean spot," said Richards about finding a favorable groove. "Once you got up on somebody, you couldn't see anything. It was just a matter of trying to be smooth. You were forced to move around a little bit."

Following the race's first caution on Lap 5, Richards' strong restart catapulted him into third position. Less than 10 laps later, Richards took over the second spot in turn 2 from Frank Heckenast Jr., who drifted up the track. Heckenast wheeled his car to a season-best fourth-place finish.

Richards claimed the lead on lap 16 after Johnny Pursley, who started the race in the top spot, lost a right rear tire. There on, Richards never looked back.

Chub Frank's No. 1* Cory Rubber Corporation machine followed behind Richards for the latter-half of the race, recording his best finish in not only 2016, but also since his second-place finish at Delaware International Speedway in August 2015. The Bear Lake, Penn.-native said he'd rather be in victory lane, but rebounding from qualifying 14th earlier in the night made it a successful night.

"The track was choppy, but you could at least race on it," Frank said. "It was definitely a handful. I never knew which way my car was going. I don't think my car was bad, but [Richards'] car ran through all the rough stuff better than mine. He was more consistent."

Rounding-out the podium was York, Penn.-native Rick Eckert, who also took advantage of the lower groove earlier in the race. Eckert's No. 7 Paul Crowl Racing car claimed the third spot on Lap 17, passing Heckenast in Turn 2 like Richards did earlier.

"It's about time," Eckert said. "At least we made it on the inside, but got beat on the outside. In the middle of the race right before the track started getting rough, we had a good car. Everyone was in there, starting to rip it up. I couldn't maneuver through the holes and everyone else couldn't too. But Josh's seemed to maneuver through the holes. He earned it."

Cozze Victorious at Grandview Speedway April 24, 2016

Cozze Victorious at Grandview Speedway

BECHTELSVILLE, PA. April 24, 2016 – Nine features have been run at Grandview Speedway since the 2016 April opener and thus far it has produced nine different winners in the three regularly scheduled NASCAR divisions.

Frank Cozze, in his second season behind the wheel of the Tom Umbenhauer-owned/Harry’s U-Pull It sponsored mount now sporting the No. 4, was MIA last week attending his daughter’s wedding. He returned this week and started the evening off right by winning the second heat. He then led the T.P. Trailers NASCAR 358 Modified All-American Racing Series 30-Lap feature from start to finish and one-hour prior to winning the event he learned his son and daughter-in-law made him a grandfather. The 60-year old Wind Gap veteran, who hasn’t won since July 2013, didn’t have an easy task in scoring his second Grandview victory. He dealt with lapped cars, three-wide racing with Kenny Gilmore and eventual runner-up Rick Laubach. “The track was tricky tonight because it was slippery and I didn’t want to make any stupid mistakes with the lap cars commented the elated winner and this win really helped the team.”

On the initial green of the Modified feature, Cozze shot from second and past Bobby Gunther-Walsh to become the early pacesetter.

A homestretch tangle between Brett Kressley and John Willman brought out the first yellow on lap six with Kressley going off on the hook and Willman continued only to drop out later. Cozze held the top spot on the restart while Kenny Gilmore, Rick Laubach, Gunther-Walsh and Kevin Hirthler jockeyed for positions. Anticipating a slip-up so they could advance were Ryan Grim and Jeff Strunk.

By the 16th lap the front runners approached a gaggle of lap cars and had to thread the needle carefully to get by because some didn’t heed the mover-over flag.

The final caution was on the 24th lap when Eric Biehn slowed his pace and was unable to get into the infield quickly enough. As the yellow unfurled Strunk hit the first turn uke tire knocking it onto the track, but didn’t get penalized since it was after the yellow was thrown.

The battle for the lead went three-wide on the restart between Cozze, Gilmore and Laubach with neither one lifting while Grim and Strunk waited for something to happen.

Cozze held off all the competition and went on to claim his second career Grandview win. Grabbing second at the line was Laubach trailed by Gilmore, Grim and Strunk. First through fourth all posted their season best finishes. Jared Umbenhauer, Craig Von Dohren, Hirthler, Duane Howard and Ryan Watt completed the top ten.

Satterlee Makes Spectacular Last Lap Pass; Wins at Hagerstown April 23, 2016

Satterlee Makes Spectacular Last Lap Pass; Wins at Hagerstown

HAGERSTOWN, MD (April 23, 2016) - Gregg Satterlee passed race leader Scott Bloomquist heading into turn one on the final lap and went on to win the Stanley Schetrompf Founders Day Classic on Saturday Night at Hagerstown Speedway. It is Satterlee's first career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win. He becomes the ninth different winner in nine Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series races at the "Capitol of Dirt Racing".

Tim McCreadie came home in third, followed by; the current LOLMDS point leader; Jonathan Davenport and Rick Eckert.

"I couldn't believe it; it is so hard to follow lapped cars here. He [Bloomquist] got a little crooked going into turn one and I just hit that corner perfectly. I was going to try going high into turn one to go around him, and at the last second I decided to go low, and it paid off. It was just one of those things, and I drove right by him."

"I have always wanted to win a Lucas Oil Series race. To beat such a stout field, and to pass Bloomquist on the last lap, I don't think I could have written it any better. I just can't thank my crew chief Robbie Allen enough; he is from right here in Hagerstown; I know this is a big win for him as well! Thanks to Mark Richards, these new XR1 cars we have are definitely fast! Hopefully it's going to be a great season."

"They have been trying to run this race for the last two years and the weather has not been good. Thanks to the fans for coming out tonight. This is the biggest crowd I have ever seen here."

Satterlee's Durham powered Rocket is sponsored by Satterlee Petroleum Distributors, Valvoline, Keyser, Classic Ink, Integra, and All About Wraps,

Jimmy Owens led the first 14 laps until Bloomquist took over the point. Bloomquist held the lead steadily for most of the race. The final caution came out with 14 laps-to-go. On the final restart, Satterlee was in third and had to pass Tim McCreadie to get to second.

Satterlee then set his sights on the high flying Bloomquist and closed the gap with each waning lap. Satterlee was a car length behind Bloomquist as the two drivers took the white flag. Moments later Satterlee dove to the inside of turn number one to take the lead on the final lap.

Bloomquist was looking for back-to-back wins in LOLMDS competition, and was disappointed that he let the win slip away. "The left rear tire was giving up. He [Satterlee] ran a good race. We just got into the corner a little hot and I should have just stayed on the bottom. I didn't know that he was that close to me."

McCreadie continues to make strides in his Longhorn Chassis. He piloted his Sweeteners Plus entry to a solid third-place finish.   "He [Satterlee] got by me on that last restart. I was so 'caught-up' looking at the leaders on that last lap, that I just about missed the corner when I saw Satterlee get underneath Scott! We had a good car all night! Without that last caution, I think that I probably would have finished second. We made all kinds of changes to the car this week and it paid off. Heading into Illinois next week, tonight's run is a major confidence booster!"

Completing the top ten were Jared Landers, Earl Pearson Jr., Jimmy Owens, Don O'Neal and Darrell Lanigan.

Wade Hendrickson Pockets $5,280 at Bridgeport Speedway April 17, 2016

Wade Hendrickson Pockets $5,280 at Bridgeport Speedway

BRIDGEPORT, NJ – Wade Hendrickson used a front-row starting spot to conquer the ‘South Jersey Shootout’ at Bridgeport Speedway and lead all 40 laps in the second race of the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled by VP Velocita South Region. The dominating effort was Hendrickson’s first career STSS victory in a limited amount of starts, and it was worth $5,280 including lap money and bonuses.

“I guess these old guys aren’t washed up after all,” Hendrickson said in Victory Lane with his car parked bumper-to-bumper with runner-up finisher Billy Pauch Sr.

Hendrickson, of Lawrenceville, N.J., advanced in the final heat race from third to second qualifying him for the redraw.

“We weren’t that good in the heat race,” said Hendrickson. “We probably wouldn’t have qualified if we started deeper.”

 As the final driver to redraw, Hendrickson was left with the only number unpicked: one.

 “Usually I’m not lucky drawing,” he said. “Then it was perfect that I didn’t have to draw. It worked out well.”

“The Flying Farmer” in the Craig Pondish Racing No. 6 took the early lead at the drop of the green flag ahead of Jimmy Horton, David Hunt, Pauch and John McClelland.

As the top-five began to settle in, it was Ryan Godown and Stewart Friesen wreaking havoc on the rest of the field from the eighth and ninth-place starting positions, respectively.

By lap three Friesen had already broken into the top-five after getting around McClelland, and Godown was sixth a lap later. Pauch, the next victim, quickly fell prey to the hard-charging duo as they both went around by lap eight. Meanwhile, Hendrickson built a significant lead over Horton and Hunt. 

Hendrickson neared lapped traffic on lap 13 just as Hunt made his move on the bottom past Horton with Friesen and Godown lurking just behind. The group of four then rapidly drew closer to Hendrickson.

With Hunt and Horton using the bottom lane, Friesen and Godown worked the outside. Friesen finally raced around Horton on lap 15 after a pair of laps running side by side. Godown followed one lap later, and the trio of Hunt, Friesen and Godown were almost on Hendrickson’s bumper.

“My tire was too soft,” Hendrickson said, standing next to his flat right-rear. “I had to go easy in the middle of the race to save it.”

As the field reached the halfway point, Pauch began to get in on the action, creating a five-car battle for the top spot using all lanes on the track. Pauch passed Godown for fourth on lap 22, but a caution for a slowing Jordan Watson would give Godown the spot on the restart.

“I ran the bottom the whole way,” Pauch said. “I got by Godown when the yellow came out, but I wanted the bottom, so it worked out.”

On the ensuing restart, Hendrickson led Friesen, Pauch, Hunt, Godown and Anthony Perrego, the winner of the Velocita South Region opener at Georgetown Speedway.

Pauch passed Friesen a few laps later and made his final charge for the win. “I should have pushed him a little harder,” Pauch said. “But finishing one-two with him is a pretty good night.

Hendrickson, and his right-rear tire, rode to the checkered flag without too much trouble. Pauch settled for second. Friesen rounded out the podium, crossing the line in third.
