Aaron Reutzel Sweeps I-79 Summer Shootout July 21, 2018

Aaron Reutzel Sweeps I-79 Summer Shootout

PITTSBURGH, Pa. (July 21, 2018) - For the fourth time in five events, Aaron Reutzel earned his way to Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory lane, this time by taming “Dirt’s Monster Half-Mile” at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway (PPMS) during the second and final leg of the 2018 I-79 Summer Shootout.

For Reutzel, his evening in Western Pennsylvania was nearly flawless, not only leading all 25 laps of the All Star main event, but also kicking-off the evening with the fastest time during qualifying time trials, as well as earning an impressive heat race win. The victory, Reutzel’s seventh of the 2018 All Star Circuit of Champions season, concluded a model weekend for the Clute, Texas, native that also included a victory on Friday night at Eriez Speedway. Reutzel is now the owner of two perfect weekends in 2018, actually winning back-to-back events at Plymouth (Ind.) Speedway and Dirt Oval (Ill.) at Route 66 on June 29 & 30.

“We are doing one heck of a job right now,” Aaron Reutzel explained in victory lane, driver of the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports/Folkens Bros. Trucking/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/No. 87 sprint car. “Our cars have been fantastic, as well as holding together. When nights go as smooth as this, you can’t ask for much more.”

After finishing second during the evening’s dash, his only defeat at PPMS, Aaron Reutzel lined up on the outside of row one for the start of the 25-lap main event. Although flawless for most of the program, immediately gaining the lead after the initial start, Reutzel did encounter a few hazards, mostly in the form of lapped traffic which nearly cost Reutzel his lead. Reutzel’s first, and perhaps his most challenging situation during the 25-lapper occurred on lap eight when the driver of the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports entry nearly made contact with a lapped car twice while trying to work around him.

Although unable to keep up with Reutzel for the first few circuits, Carson Macedo, who started from the pole position by way of dash victory, was able to chase down Reutzel as the pair encountered lapped traffic. Reutzel’s near-mishap was just what Macedo needed, using his momentum to pull even with the Texan as the duo battled through turns one and two on lap 10. Luckily for Reutzel, the potential lead change was negated after caution flags flew for a slowing Tyler Esh.

After the feature’s first and only caution appeared, action resumed with Reutzel still in command of the field over Macedo and Cole Duncan. Periods of heavy traffic came into play once again with less than ten circuits remaining thus allowing Macedo to close the gap once more. Although Macedo made a tremendous effort to track down Reutzel, the former ASCS national champion was just as strong, if not stronger in traffic.

“The top of the speedway was pretty dominant tonight. You were able to carry a lot of momentum up there,” Carson Macedo explained. “I kept trying to get closer in traffic, but (Aaron Reutzel) was really good, too. He made good, consistent laps.”

“There were a couple of guys out there that made things tricky; bottom to top then back to the bottom,” Reutzel said about traffic. “They were making me a little nervous. I really didn’t know which way to go, but luckily we got through them without getting into any trouble.”

Austin Hubbard Scores $8,200 Payday At Bedford Speedway July 13, 2018

Austin Hubbard Scores $8,200 Payday At Bedford Speedway

 Austin Hubbard played a waiting game for 45 laps before rising to win the big 82nd anniversary event at Bedford Friday night.   It was the third career Bedford triumph, all coming in special events, but his first in over five years at the track.  It was worth $8300 to the Delaware racer.  In other action, big 2018 winners Mike Altobelli and Josh Frankenberry won the accompanying EMod and Pure Stock events.

     After the pill draw for the lineup,  Alex Ferree and Nathan Lasalle brought the Late Model field to the green.  Ferree shot ahead at the start and immediately displayed dominance over the field.  Ross Robinson got by Lasalle for second on lap 4 and sixth starter Austin Hubbard followed him by into third on lap 5.  Huibbard got by Robinson  on lap 7 and the group ran in that order at the front until one of the most bizarre events in Bedford History occurred on lap 11.

    On that lap, with the field in full action, the front stretch lights went dark, forcing an immediate  22 minute red flag to secure the problem.  During the delay, quite a few racers pitted and went to the rear, but the order at the front remained the same.

   On the restart, Ferree again ran off from his chasers,  Jeff Rine joined that group as he got by Robinson on lap 13 for third.   A few more cautions slowed the field, but Ferree ran off from the second place battlers each time opening up large leads.

    While the action at the front stabilized, all eyes were on B feature winner Jared Miley, who was sliding thru the field from 21st starting position.  He made it to seventh by lap 30 and jumped into a great battle with Robinson and Walker Arthur.

     The complexion of the event totally changed after a lap 44 caution for a slowing Andy Fries.   On the restart, Ferree again shot ahead but suffered a flat tire on the back stretch.  Hubbard, in tire saving mode for the duration , shot by for the lead and ultimate win by holding off Rine for the last five laps.  Tyler Bare was third, ahead of Robinson, Walker Arthur, Miley, Steve Casebolt, Andy Haus and Dylan Yoder.  

      Hubbard was the fast qualifier.  Ferree, Lasalle, Darryl Hills and Robinson won the heats,  Miley took the 19 car B feature.  Chuck Clise was the high point man promoters addition to the event.

Matt Sheppard Wins A Barn Burner At Cornwall Motor Speedway July 12, 2018

Matt Sheppard Wins A Barn Burner At Cornwall Motor Speedway

By Martin Belanger

Cornwall, Ont , CAN – July 12, 2018 – The north portion of the 2018 DIRTcar 358-Modified Series started in great fashion at Cornwall Motor Speedway with the richest race of the tour one of the longuest race as well in the Series. Matt Sheppard left Cornwall with 12000 reasons to smile and no better way to celebrate his 36th birthday as he captured $12,000 to win Race for the Cure 150!

After a lap 4 accident, Sheppard charged back from a 26th starting spot to first: ’Wow, I don’t what to say! I thought my night was over after that crash but was able to come back’’ mentioned a smiling Sheppard. ‘’The car got better as the laps got by as you could see the car bobbled during yellows’’. ‘’I can’t thank the Slack family for giving me this ride tonight, if it was not from them, I would not be here tonight!’’ completed Sheppard who collected a total of $18,000 in about 10 days at Cornwall after winning the Super DIRTcar Series on July 1st.

Collecting second in the feature was Mat Williamson: ‘’I thought I had it tonight, it was a matter of a few feet’s!’’ mentioned Williamson. ‘’We worked hard during the break to get this car ready and it paid off!’’

Winner of last season’s event, Tim Fuller finished on the final step of the podium. ‘’We had a great car but hat’s off to both Matt’s for their run here tonight, the track was in great shape!’’ said Fuller.

Gary Lindberg and Jordan McCreadie led the field of 32 strong to green in the 150-lap Race for the Cure Feature as McCreadie took the early lead over Lindberg and Carey Terrance. A tangle involving Matt Sheppard and Dale Planck in turn 1 occurred on lap 4 and yellow was out, drivers were able to return to action.

Action resumed on lap 11 with McCreadie leading the way as Terrance looped in turn 2 and caution was out lap 13. McCreadie remained in front as a few new faces joined the top 5 with David Hebert, Steve Bernard and Tim Fuller by lap 20. Bernard started to make progress in front as he took second spot by lap 35. Leaders were reaching lap traffic when an accident occurred between Steve Morris and Stephane Lafrance.

On the restart on lap 45, McCreadie remained first with Bernard following closely as battle went on for third between. Something let off on McCreadie’s ride on lap 55 and had to let go the lead to Bernard. The #54 to the lead with Lindberg in second with Brian McDonald and Mat Williamson making their way front after starting in the mid field.

At halfway point, Bernard was leading over Lindberg, McDonald, Fuller and Williamson. A lot of changes on a lap 79 restart as Lindberg pulled a great move on Bernard for the lead as Williamson move to third. Williamson had a great car and took second on lap 84 over Bernard.

With 50 laps to go Lindberg kept his distance from but after starting back in 26th, Sheppard made his way in the top 5 and was on a mission passing the leader and moving up to second by lap 120. Kevin Hamel brought the field together on lap 124. Williamson leading the way, but Sheppard was following closely as Lindberg stopped in turn 4, losing his great 3rd place run with 22 laps to go.

The leaders got into lap traffic with 10 laps to go as Sheppard was riding on the bumper of Williamson. Sheppard waited patiently behind the leader and chose the high lane in traffic with 2 laps to go, Sheppard used that lane and pulled besides Williamson with the white flag waving, both drivers races side by side as Sheppard got the edge at the winner’s circle over Williamson by only .042 seconds as Fuller completes the podium.

Freedom Fighter 100 Won by Jimmy Phelps July 8, 2018

Freedom Fighter 100 Won by Jimmy Phelps

VERNON, NY – July 8, 2018 – The Baldwinsville Bandit Jimmy Phelps struck gold, winning the $6,000 to win Freedom Fighter 100 at Utica-Rome Speedway in front of a tremendous crowd. Race fans witnessed an incredible race as Phelps held off charge after charge from the likes of Stewart Friesen and Danny Johnson. Johnson, coming off his win at Land of Legends Raceway, finished second, and has put a firm stamp on his bid for the overall Series Championship. The bottom step of the podium was filled by Erick Rudolph. He started 13th and made his way up through the field, passing points leader Matt Sheppard late in the 100-lap race.

 

The drive of the night and KSE Hard-Charger Award winner goes to Phelps’ HBR teammate Max McLaughlin, who started in 19th position after running into problems during his Heat Race. McLaughlin’s Big-Block Modified was fast on the top and bottom side of the race track. The no. 6h flashed by fifteen competitors to secure fourth position.
Jimmy Phelps, who started on the pole, felt he had Lady Luck give him some assistance. “Fortunately, I had good track position. I gotta thank the young lady that pulled that Dig Safely NY 811 hat in the redraw for me. What a car all weekend long. It’s been on rails. I just can’t thank everybody at HBR enough. There’s just a huge list of people that make this happen. It feels good.”

Phelps struggled with lapped traffic: “When it’s your night, it’s your night. The cautions definitely helped me. We were definitely committed to the bottom. I was able to roll around a couple guys in turns one and two in the middle. I just really ventured out there in three and four. Fortunately, I didn’t have to. I was hoping we were good enough to make it happen if we had to.”

This was Phelps’ first Series checkered flag in 2018. “We’ve been on a little bit a dry spell in the win column with the Super DIRTcar Series, so this feels good to get back on track here. Hopefully we can keep it rolling.”

Danny Johnson grabs his second podium finish in two races. “Yeah it was good. Just came up a little bit short. Really ecstatic for my team that we could come up here in a top position. We almost had it, close but no cigar. We could have been a little bit better but maybe next time.”

Erick Rudolph made timely and decisive moves to get there around starting mid-pack. “We started 13th and had a little way to come but we had 100 laps to do it. We’ve got some things to sort out. Congrats to Jimmy and Danny on their top 3 finishes. I didn’t have anything for them but maybe next time we might. Beginning of the race it seemed like it wanted to be on the bottom and then as the race went on it wanted to be elsewhere.”
