Phillips Wins Thrilling Longdale Finale May 14, 2016

Phillips Wins Thrilling Longdale Finale

(PR by David Smith Jr) Longdale, Oklahoma – May 14, 2016 - In one of the most entertaining features you will see from start to finish, Terry Phillips held off several race long challenges and slower traffic to win the MARS DIRTcar late model feature finale Saturday night at Longdale Speedway in Longdale, Oklahoma to wrap up the tracks second annual “Walleye Rodeo Weekend.”

Phillips and Jesse Stovall started on the front row for the thirty lap feature with Phillips jumping out into the lead as the green flag fell. Stovall, Rodney Sanders and Ryan Gustin were the top four after the first lap was completed with Phillips opening a six car length advantage by lap three.

Lap eight saw the leaders reach the back of the field allowing Stovall to close the gap to two car lengths. Four laps later Stovall got a run on Phillips in turns one and two and pulled down along-side of Phillips heading down the backstretch. However, a lapped car slowed Stovall’s progress allowing Phillips to keep the lead.

Both Missouri residents would continue their side battle for the top spot with no more than one car length separating the two. On lap twenty they would be joined by Sanders as he closed in on the front runners, making it a three car battle for the lead. Sanders would take over the runner up position on lap twenty-two and began putting pressure on Phillips with both drivers running the bottom of the 4/10ths of a mile oval. Stovall started using the top side of the track and while all three were working lapped traffic, Stovall would get caught up in Jason Redman’s spin in turns three and four and would come to a stop to bring out the caution.

The final restart saw Phillips and his brand new Durham Motor powered Black Diamond chassis, get the edge entering turns one and two and as he drifted a bit high exiting turn two, Sanders tucked down low with both drivers racing side by side entering turn three. Phillips made the middle stick and from then on there was no stopping the newly inducted Springfield, Missouri Hall of Famer as he would go on to claim the ten car length victory and first MARS victory of the season and 88th series victory of his career.

Sanders held on for second while Gustin settled for third. Tony Jackson, Jr. came home fourth with Payton Looney rounded out the top five.

Matt Sheppard Gets 3rd Win at Canandaigua May 7, 2016

Matt Sheppard Gets 3rd Win at Canandaigua

CANANDAIGUA, NY – “The track was real fast tonight. I was especially quick in turns three and four”, stated Matt Sheppard after he picked up his third DIRTcar Modified feature of the year in three tries at Canandaigua. This win, number 54 for Sheppard, moves him into fifth on the Canandaigua All-Time feature win list, surpassing Hall of Famer Will Cagle, who has 53 feature wins.

 

Gil Tegg Jr. was able to grab the lead from his pole starting position in the 35-lap DIRTcar Modified feature. He quickly found himself in a side-by-side duel with Brian Sage., who nosed slightly ahead to lead lap six, before Tegg, Jr. rebounded back into first.

The yellow flew on lap 10 when Justin Haers slid off the track in the fourth turn due to a faulty kill switch. He was able to make repairs and return at the back of the field.

Up front Sage used his inside restarting spot to claim first. But then five laps later he drifted to the inside of the third turn, off the track and out of the race. This allowed Gary Tomkins to inherit the lead. One lap later the yellow flew again. Vic Coffey, who was forced high between turns three and four came to a stop and was tagged in the door panel by Eldon Payne, Jr. just as the yellow flew. Both cars were able to continue.

Up front Tomkins stayed ahead of Mike O’Brien and Steve Paine. But moving through the field, was Sheppard. Sheppard took third on lap 24 and one lap later grabbed second from O’Brien. On lap 28 he caught Tomkins going into the third turn and completed his pass for the lead using the inside grove.

Steve Paine rebounded and moved into second, but was unable to draw closer to Sheppard. At the finish line it was Sheppard followed by Paine. Haers, who seemed on a mission after his kill switch seemed to fail, nosed out Tomkins at the finish line for third. Tim Fuller rounded out the top five finishers.

Jesse Sobbing netted his fifth straight top-five finish with a third-place effort Friday while Dereck Ramirez finished fourth and Cade Dillard wound up fifth to snap his two-race win streak.

Jeremy Gossett was sixth, Philip Houston secured the seventh spot, veteran Dee Gossett earned an eighth-place paycheck and Scott Drake held off his boss/teammate, Joe Duvall, for ninth.

Outlaw Shane Clanton Capitalizes at Ponderosa Speedway May 6, 2016

Outlaw Shane Clanton Capitalizes at Ponderosa Speedway

JUNCTION CITY, Ky. – May 6, 2016 – Shane Clanton claimed his third World of Outlaws Craftsman® Late Model Series victory of the season under Friday night’s Ponderosa Speedway lights, winning the 24th-annual “Kentucky Klassic.”

“Well, just catching those lapped cars, I was able to get in better position in the corners,” Clanton said. “I knew if I got up against that berm, I could go down the straight-away and it would be difficult for someone to pass me.”

On the first lap, Clanton used the outside groove to wheel his No. 25 Weldbank Energy/Coopers Meat Packers Capital machine into the No. 1 spot. He thereon led the remainder of the race. This is the defending points champion’s first win since Feb. 20 at DIRTcar Nationals in Barbersville, Fla.

“I think our car had a good balance as choppy as the track was,” said Clanton, who first dealt with lapped cars on Lap 9. “If you got a good balance, you don’t upset your car when you go over the holes. Our car is so balanced right now it could go wherever you want it to go.”

Although Clanton led the field for the majority of the race, second-place finisher Chris Madden made a late push in his No. 44 Crowder Trucking/ Gentry Plastics Longhorn car with 15 laps to go – revisiting two out-of-series barn-burners the drivers had on April 23 at Senoia Raceway and Rome Speedway on April 24.

Madden, a regional favorite, challenged the Outlaws – specifically Clanton. But, it may have been the luck of the draw that diminished Madden’s chances of catching Clanton in the end.

“We just drew a bad number tonight,” said Madden, who drew a number six for the feature event. “We had a great racecar, but we just needed to start toward the front.

“Right toward the end we got into lap traffic when we went to make that late-charge. I won two in a row that night in Senoia and went to Rome Speedway and beat him again. I’m still up on him.”

Madden beat Clanton at Senoia by a .013 margin, but he was only able to close the gap to four-one-hundredths of a second at Ponderosa. Clanton with five laps remaining doubled the margin, slamming the door on both Madden’s late-pursuit and the possibility of a non-Outlaw winning a feature for a third-straight weekend.

In an uncanny resemblance, Clanton was doomed by lapped traffic in both prior battles with Madden; this time however, Clanton was able to weave through the field where Madden could not. It took slicing through a three-wide group of lapped cars to widen the gap.

“Madden was closing in on me, but in the middle of lapped cars I did all that I can do,” Clanton said. “I just knew I had to meet my marks and get passed those lapped cars as best as I could and let him play havoc trying to get by them. To outrun him and the field feels pretty good.

“Lapped cars cost me my race two weeks ago at Senoia with Madden, and I didn’t want to do it tonight. Luckily, we prevailed.”

Rounding out the podium was the No. 22 Satterlee Petroleum Distributors/ Keyser Manufacturing Rocket car of Gregg Satterlee. He started the race in the lead position. Satterlee kept to the bottom groove of the track, but said it was the harder tires that caused him to fade quicker than Clanton and Madden.

“I guess we were a little harder on our tires than they were,” Satterlee said. “I think they had a softer right-rear tire, and I think that allowed them to get going a little quicker. We went 30 laps and I knew we were right with these guys, and in those last nine laps, it kind of got away.”
