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.

Marlar Cashes In For $4,000 Volunteer Speedway ‘Spring Thaw’ Victory April 15, 2016

Marlar Cashes In For $4,000 Volunteer Speedway ‘Spring Thaw’ Victory

BULLS GAP, Tenn. (April 15, 2016) — The Ray Cook-promoted Old Man’s Garage Spring Nationals Series helped Volunteer Speedway kick off its 43rd season of exciting dirt-track racing Friday night with running of the 15th annual Spring Thaw.

Mike Marlar of Winfield, Tenn., capitalized on the misfortune of race-long leader Chris Madden when he got together with a car suddenly slowing directly in front of him and spun in turn two just past the halfway point in the race to bring the caution flag out. Taking over the lead, Marlar would go on to hold both Dale McDowell and Rick Eckert off to capture the $4,000 victory.

Marlar was the quickest from Group A qualifying with a lap of 13.415 seconds, with five-time Volunteer Speedway Super Late Model champion Vic Hill second fastest to join Marlar in being locked into the starting lineup for the feature race out of that group.

Madden recorded the best time in Group B and overall when he toured the 4/10-mile high-banked oval in 13.318 seconds. He was joined by Chad Ogle in securing a spot on the feature starting grid from that group.

David Payne earned his way into the main event by taking the win in heat one ahead of Eric Wells, Josh Putnam and Adam Bowman while Jason Covert beat out Mark Vineyard, Devin Gilpin and Zack Olger in heat two.

Dale McDowell bested Gregg Satterlee, Cody Mahoney and Mark Douglas for the win in the third heat while Donald McIntosh was the victor in the fourth heat over Rick Eckert, Shanon Buckingham and Jake O’Neil.

Madden immediately set out to establish his dominance over the field when he bolted to the lead of the 40-lap feature from his outside front row starting position at the drop of the green flag. Marlar, Ogle, Hill, McDowell and Payne attempted to keep pace with the early leader during the initial laps but Madden was able to build a lead of several car lengths as the laps clicked off.

The racing, however, was fierce behind the front-runner as McDowell, Ogle and Hill went three-wide for the fourth spot on the second circuit with McDowell taking the position, also bringing McIntosh along for the ride to settle into fifth and dropping Hill back to sixth in the running order.

The first of four caution flags waved on lap 12 when Mack McCarter slowed with a flat tire, which provided Madden and the other front runners with a reprieve from slower traffic. After that yellow period, the fast-and-furious action for positions within the top five resumed as Ogle, McDowell and McIntosh went three-wide as they skirmished behind the lead duo of Madden and Marlar.

The pivotal moment of the race occurred on lap 24 when Madden found himself entangled with the car of O’Neil between turns one and two, after O’Neil slowed with a broken rear j-bar and was attempting to drop down and enter the turn two pit opening. With nowhere to go, the contact between Madden and O’Neil sent the race leader spinning and ultimately was forced to the rear of the field.

On the ensuing restart, Eckert made a strong move to the inside in turn one and managed to grab positions as he made his way up to the third spot. It was Marlar, however, who controlled the pace of the action following Madden’s demise.

Marlar, driving the Delk Equipment Sales/RC Trading Company/Cornett Thunder Race Engines/Capital Race Cars/No. 157 Chevrolet Camaro, went on to capture his third career Old Man’s Garage Spring Nationals Series victory over McDowell, Eckert, McIntosh and Satterlee. Completing the top 10 finishers were Covert, Wells, Buckingham, Payne and Boles.

McDowell Beats Outlaws at Duck River April 8, 2016

McDowell Beats Outlaws at Duck River

WHEEL, Tenn. - April 8, 2016 - Dale McDowell hopped out of his car, pumping his fist to a near-capacity crowd Friday night at Duck River Raceway Park in Wheel, Tenn. This is a feeling of accomplishment he has not felt in 11 years.

McDowell snapped his winless streak with the World of Outlaws Craftsman® Late Model Series, a streak dating back to May 20, 2005 when he was last victorious at Brushcreek Motorsports Complex in Peebles, Ohio. But, this was not an easy feat, as the 26-car feature was one filled with many battles.

"The draw was big for us tonight," said McDowell, whose No. 17M Bad Boy Off Road Team Dillon Racing Inc. car started the race in the top spot. "It's was awfully racey, especially in lapped traffic."

McDowell held the inside groove of the track for most of the race, while others - Darrell Lanigan especially - tested him on the high side. Lanigan, who finished runner-up to McDowell, kept his No. 15 Georgia Boot/Peak Performance car at the top of the track, building speed to close less than the two-second gap between them.

On lap 29 Lanigan closed the margin; he contested McDowell further with five laps to go. But, on the 1/4-mile oval, lapped traffic kept McDowell safe from losing his lead.

"Yeah, I had to get him hung-up in traffic and get a good groove around that top," Lanigan said. "But, the top was so far out there so there really wasn't a whole lot left. He didn't miss his marks on the bottom, so it was going to be really hard to win it."

Others gambled when choosing their line for the race. Josh Richards kept his No. 1 Valvoline Rocket Chassis low on the track, but moved up to the center of the track towards the latter part of the race. The ever-changing track conditions coupled with some "missed adjustments" resulted in him rounding out the podium.

"The bottom early was definitely good, but then it got a black ring around the bottom," said Richards about the bottom race-line becoming slick late in the race. "Dale did a great job. He was definitely the car to beat."

McDowell had another ulterior motivation fueling him toward the checkers. After the race, he smiled not for the winless streak he just snapped, but for his late-mother. His mother passed away in 2011, and all he could say after the race is that the win was for her.

"My mom has always loved this place," McDowell said. "I'd like to dedicate this win to her."

Shane Clanton maintained his quick lap-times from last weekend, recording the fastest qualifying time of both groups with a 12.472. Clanton won his heat race before eventually placing fourth in the A-Main. Clanton's No. 25 Weldbank Energy Corporation car and Richards' car rubbed paint throughout the race.

"I got a little bit of body damage being stuck in the middle," said Richards about the battle for third. "It was just racing. Shane was right there on our bumper the whole time."
