Carney Captures Boothill Showdown at Dodge City July 3, 2016

Carney Captures Boothill Showdown at Dodge City

Lonnie Wheatley, DODGE CITY, Kan. (July 3, 2016) – John Carney II and Jason Martin came away with the big money by winning Sunday night’s “Boothill Showdown” Steve King Memorial finale atop the 3/8-mile Dodge City Raceway Park clay oval.

Carney II pocketed a $10,000 winner’s share by winning a hard-fought 30-lap NCRA Sprint Car feature in the return of the Lubbock Wrecker Service/Steward Builders No. 11x Sprint Car, Martin wired the URSS vs. Precise Racing Products DCRP Sprint Cars for a $2,000 payday and Kiwi native Glenn Waterland completed a sweep of the weekend’s Colorado Lightning Sprints presented by Eagle Chassis action.

It was a car with a familiar look to long-time racing fans in Dodge City. But, rather than retired Garry Lee Maier, it was El Paso native John Carney II behind the wheel of the white Lubbock Wrecker Service/Steward Builders No. 11x Sprint Car.

Carney II slid past Show-Me Stater Brad Loyet on the 19th round, led a high-speed chase through traffic and then weathered one final caution with four laps to go to capture the $10,000 winner’s share in the 30-lapper.

“That car was locked down, they’re fun to drive when they’re that good,” Carney II said in victory lane.

It was the first weekend out for the newly formed team. “I really have to thank these guys. We put this together to just do a few hit-and-miss here and there.  And look where we are now!”

Carney II had his work cut out for him, gridding the field sixth with Loyet and Friday night winner Jack Dover leading the way to the green flag.

Loyet won the race to the first corner, but Dover charged back in front down the backstretch to lead the opening lap. Loyet battled back in turns one and two on the second round to take command and paced the field while wading through a pair of cautions in the opening half-dozen circuits.

Getting a stretch of green flag laps beginning on lap seven, Loyet led the way in front of Dover and Carney II, who had waited just three laps to make his way into third. A three-way battle for the point was rapidly developing when traffic came into play on the 12th lap, only to be foiled when Dover grenade an engine going into turn three on the 14th round.

Back under way, Loyet took off briefly only to have Carney II closing back in to challenge just past the midway point. Carney II got the run he needed entering turns one and two on the 19th round and successfully slid into the lead.

With traffic back into play by the 21st lap, Loyet kept the heat on Carney II for the $10,000 victory until the red lights flickered with just four laps to go when Joe Wood, Jr., tagged the turn two wall and flipped at the same time that Forest Sutherland spun to a stop in turn three.

Carney II took off on the final restart and cruised to the checkered flag ahead of Loyet with Lincoln, Nebraska’s Don Droud, Jr., rounding out the podium in third. C.J. Johnson fought off Danny Jennings over the closing rounds for fourth, with Jennings settling for fifth after taking the position from defending Steve King Memorial winner Tony Bruce, Jr., just three laps shy of the checkered flag.

Bruce, Jr., settled for sixth with Jeremy Campbell climbing seven positions from 14th to seventh. After topping the 305-ci portion, Jason Martin rallied from 17th to eighth with 20th-starter Jon Freeman and Jake Greider completing the top ten.

Sanders Scores First Salina Highbanks Win July 2, 2016

Sanders Scores First Salina Highbanks Win

Salina, Oklahoma (July 2, 2016) - Saturday's forecast was much more favorable for racing at the Salina Highbanks Speedway, compared to Friday's show lost to an early evening downpour. 35 of the top Super Late Models in the region signed in for $5,000 to win in the 3rd Annual Freedom Classic.

Will Vaught looked to be the one headed for Andy's Frozen Custard Victory Lane, until his right rear tire went flat four laps shy of the checkers. He started out front and led until that point. Rodney Sanders inherited the point and rolled the final four laps to score his first win, in any division, at Salina, and first Late Model win of the season.

"We've been second here so many times it feels good to get a win," said Sanders. "I lost brakes there the last 20 laps. We've kind of struggled this year . I saw Will was going pretty hard there at the beginning. I could run with him a little bit, then I lost brakes and was just gonna ride. Luckily we held on for the win."

Jesse Stovall had won the previous four Late Model races at the highbanks, but fell one spot short of making it five Saturday.

"All in all I guess it was a good points night," commented Stovall. "I really like this place. It just didn't turn out like I thought it would tonight. I knew the bottom was gonna be there, so I thought I'd give the top a shot. Congratulations to Rodney, he got the job done. Will was probably in the cat bird's seat, his tire just gave up on him."

Sunoco Rookie of the Year points leader Tad Pospisil, qualified well for the feature and kept his car underneath him to record his best finish of the season in third.

"We were just way too tight to run in the rubber," Pospisil commented after the race. "It was survival of the fittest. I'm glad to see all these fans here. This is an amazing facility."

The initial start of the main event was called back when some front running cars stumbled on the takeoff, piling up a few of the competitors starting deeper in the field. Brantlee Gotschall lost power and slowed on lap 11 drawing a yellow, and the only other break in the pace was for Vaught near the end.

Heat race winners early in the evening were; Tad Pospisil, Josh Hughes, Will Vaught and Ryan Gustin.

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.”
