Krohn Cashes In At Deer Creek September 5, 2015

Krohn Cashes In At Deer Creek

SPRING VALLEY, Minn.—A caution with seven laps to go Saturday night at the Deer Creek Speedway proved to be the downfall of Jason Hughes and a blessing for Jason Krohn as Krohn zipped into the lead one lap after the restart and drove away to score his second USMTS win in three nights.

From the pole, Hughes took control at the start of the race and continued to set the pace through changing track conditions and lapped traffic until 33 laps into the race when the yellow flag waved and slowed the pace.

By now, Krohn was running third after starting tenth while Zack VanderBeek was solidly in second. VanderBeek selected the outside lane for the double-file restart, and Krohn immediately disposed of him before flying by Hughes on the low side to lead lap 34.

From there, Krohn cruised to victory.

“A lot of times not starting up front is an advantage, and tonight proved to be one of them,” Krohn said while standing in victory lane for the second time this week after also winning on Thursday at the Fairmont Raceway. “Kind of had to move around through lapped traffic and the other cars that we were racing, and the bottom was taking just a little more traction in spots so we were able to find that. On the restart when Zack gave me the bottom, we were able to use that to our advantage.

Following a hiatus from modified racing since February, the 2007 USMTS National Champion has been white hot in his black No. 7 MB Customs machine. He sat out Friday’s show, winning his last two starts over this Labor Day Weekend.

Krohn also addressed his good fortune the last 72 hours with that of his teammate, Rodney Sanders, who has recorded his three worst finishes of the Hunt for the USMTS Casey’s Cup during the last three days.

“We work hard and Rodney has helped me a lot chassis-wise and with set up. It’s unfortunate what took place with him, but it is what it is. The one thing I can assure you is that we will keep racing, we will keep working and we will keep our heads up.”

VanderBeek also found his way past Hughes to nail down the runner-up spot, but his third-place finish was enough to propel Hughes into the points lead by 10 markers over Sanders with just two points races remaining.

Dereck Ramirez was fourth in Saturday’s main event while Joe Duvall was fast all night long and banked his first top-five finish of the ‘Hunt.’

Sanders came from 17th to finish sixth while Stormy Scott roared from 23 on the grid to seventh at the end of the 40-lap nightcap. Brent Larson, Jesse Glenz and Brad Waits rounded out the top 10.

The rain that hampered the early weekend gave way for a beautiful day of racing on Sunday afternoon. The cars and stars of Wisconsin came out in force to support the 6thAnnual George Scheffler Memorial at Oshkosh Speedzone Raceway.
 
 
37 CBC Late Models filled the pits and the Wisconsin stars shinned. CBC Champion Chad Simpson was the early leader on the slick smooth clay until Jimmy Mars showed his muscle on lap 25 and passed the defending race winner. From that point on Mars worked the traffic perfectly to keep the lead and win. 
 
 
It was not easy for Mars as AJ Diemel pressed him hard and even briefly passed Mars for the lead for a partial lap. Chad Simpson held on for third but behind him it was hard racing. Mitch McGrath is a super star in the making and grabbed 4th with Mike Mullen taking 5th. Illinois Hot Shoes Frank Heckenast Jr. and Jason Feger, took 6th and 7th. Other drivers on the lead lap were Nick Anvelink in 8th and Paul Parker at 9th. All other drivers finished a lap down or more.

Billy Decker Takes Fulton Speedway Checkers August 29, 2015

Billy Decker Takes Fulton Speedway Checkers

By Dave Medler - FULTON, NY - August 29, 2015 - Friday night at the Brewerton Speedway Billy Decker won a classic battle with Pat Ward with a last lap pass to win the Tracey Road Equipment Modified feature. Saturday night at the Fulton Speedway Billy Decker did it once again. Decker took the lead on lap-22 from Chris Hile in the 35-lap Tracey Road Equipment Modified feature and never looked back, winning by over three seconds at the checkers.
With his victory Billy Decker wrapped up the 2015 Track Championship.

Other winners on Burke’s Home Centers night were:  Billy Clark Jr. (Sportsman) Chris Fleming (Late Model) Rich Riggs (Novice Sportsman) Jacobe Palmiter (4 CYL).

Jim Witko Jr. would jump out to the early lead and establish a five-car advantage to lead the opening lap of the 35-lap Tracey Road Equipment Modified feature.

With 5-laps complete Witko, running the extreme top of the speedway, opened a half a straightaway lead. Behind Witko, Chris Hile, Tom Sears Jr., Pat Ward and Joe August Jr. ran in a pack fighting for top-five positions.

On lap-10 Adam Roberts spun in turns one and two leaving Andrew Ferguson no place to go making contact with Roberts and turning his car over. Ferguson was okay.

When the race went back to green Hile took advantage of the outside groove as he blasted into the lead on lap-11 to be scored the new leader.

With 15-laps complete Hile held a narrow three-car advantage as right behind him, Sears, Ward, Billy Decker and Larry Wight were right there with the leader fighting for top-five spots.

On lap-20 Hile was still setting a quick pace out front but still had Sears, Ward, Decker and Wight right with him in the second half of the feature.

On lap-21 Decker, using the bottom of the speedway, would move into second place and set his sights on Hile. Just one lap later Decker, still using the low groove, would drive by Hile and into the lead.

With no yellows the rest of the distance Decker would drive away from the field winning by over three seconds at the finish. Tom Sears Jr., Pat Ward, Larry Wight and Chris Hile would finish second through fifth.

Eriez Win Gives Richards Weekend Trifecta August 23, 2015

Eriez Win Gives Richards Weekend Trifecta

ERIE, Pa. - Aug. 23, 2015 - Josh Richards of Shinnston, W.Va., wrapped up a perfect weekend on the World of Outlaws Late Model Series with a dominating victory in front of a near-capacity crowd Sunday night at Eriez Speedway.

Richards, who opened the national tour's three-race weekend with victories at Atomic Speedway in Chillicothe, Ohio, on Friday and Saturday, overtook WoO LMS points leader Shane Clanton of Zebulon, Ga., on lap 31 of Sunday's 50-lap A-Main at Eriez and cruised through the remainder of the caution-free race on his way to his ninth WoO LMS victory of the season and his fifth in the tour's past six races.

"That was a lot of fun. I love the fans up here and this is an awesome racetrack," said the 27-year-old Richards, whose third WoO LMS victory at Eriez marked the 58th series win of his career. "I had a lot of fun this weekend. It's a little surreal, but we're just gonna keep racing and doing what we love to do."

Richards' Valvoline-sponsored Rocket Chassis house car crossed the finish line 4.550 seconds ahead of Clanton, who settled for second in his Weldbank Energy Capital Race Cars house car. Frank Heckenast Jr. of Frankfort, Ill., was third in a Club 29 Race Car with Chub Frank of Bear Lake, Pa., fourth in a Longhorn Chassis and Max Blair of Centerville, Pa., fifth in a Rocket Chassis.

Starting from inside the second row, Richards went by second-starting Heckenast early and chased the polesitting Clanton through the opening laps. Clanton initially pulled away from Richards, but Richards began closing the gap when the two leaders reached traffic just after lap 10.

Richards pressured Clanton through traffic during the follow circuits and edged ahead at times. But it wasn't until lap 31 that he finally completed the pass and grabbed the lead for good.

Richards cruised from there, knifing his way through traffic in lapping all but the top 12 cars.

"Clanton was really good early," said Richards, who is now tied with Clanton for the most victories on this year WoO LMS tour. "I think we might have adjusted a little bit too far, and early in the race I was a little bit too free. I had to be really methodical through lapped traffic and try to get through there the best I could.

"The car was really maneuverable. I can't think my dad (Mark Richards of Rocket Chassis) enough. He's one of the smartest guys in the industry."
