Richards Roars To Pittsburgher 100 Victory October 8, 2016

Richards Roars To Pittsburgher 100 Victory

IMPERIAL, PA (October 8, 2016) – Josh Richards roared to the lead on lap 25 and never looked back - winning his second career Pittsburgher 100. The victory for his team was worth $20,000 on Saturday night at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway. Richards took over the point from the early pace-setter and new track record holder, Michael Norris.

Richards’ Mark Richards Racing/Valvoline/Seubert Calf Ranches/Durham Race Engines/Rocket Chassis house-car captured his sixth Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win of the season over Scott Bloomquist, Gregg Satterlee, Don O’Neal, and Jimmy Owens.

Norris was making his first career LOLMDS start and looked strong early on in the race, but Richards went by him on lap 25. O’Neal then got by Norris for second as Bloomquist - who started tenth - began to make his way to the front.

The 28-year-old Richards held a healthy lead despite several caution flags in the first half of the race. O’Neal and Bloomquist had a terrific side-by-side race for second for several laps, but Bloomquist was finally able to clear O’Neal for the runner-up spot on lap 61.

With no caution flags for the second half of the 100-lap event, Bloomquist constantly cut into Richards’ advantage, but Richards was able to maneuver around traffic and keep enough of distance between him and the current LOLMDS point leader to claim the win.

“It feels good to win this race for a second time. This is my favorite race track. I have said this since I was little. There is nowhere else like it. It’s a great place to race at. The fans are great. Our hearts go out to Mike Farr who passed away last night and to John Flinner for a speedy recovery. We are hoping that John is ok and will get back in a race car soon,” said the winner afterwards.

“I gambled on tires, and I didn’t know how it would turn out. At the end of the race I started to lose it a little. I couldn’t roll through the top like I did earlier in the race. I knew when I saw Scott [Bloomquist] on the board that he would be coming too.”

Bloomquist was looking for an unprecedented sixth Pittsburgher 100 win, but came across the finish line in second. “I had a good car all night. Our Andy Durham Race Engine ran well all night. Thanks to Crop Production Services, Reece Monument, Steve Sorbera Chiropractic, Horton Coal, and the rest of our sponsors who make this possible.”

Satterlee started 14th and thrilled his home-state fans with his third place finish for the Satterlee Petroleum/Rocket Chassis. “We didn’t have enough for those two guys up front. From the position we started off, our night turned out well. I got behind when we qualified and made some questionable moves in the heat race. We started too far back. You can’t give these guys that much real estate ahead of you. We changed all four corners on the car after the heat race and it paid off,” said Satterlee who joined Richards and Bloomquist on the podium.

Completing the top ten were Dennis Erb Jr., Tim McCreadie, Earl Pearson Jr., Darrell Lanigan and Michael Norris.

Tony Buffomante Grabs TA2 Victory In VIR Survivors' Race September 24, 2016

Tony Buffomante Grabs TA2 Victory In VIR Survivors' Race

ALTON, Va.  [September 24, 2016] – Tony Buffomante emerged victorious at Virginia International Raceway as the Trans Am Series held its second race of the day, a TA2 independent race, for Round 8 of the 2016 Trans Am Championship.  The victory was Buffomante’s fourth of the year and second consecutive, helping bolster his points lead in the TA2 Championship.  

Buffomante, in the No. 34 Mike Cope Racing Ford Mustang, began the day in second position, alongside teammate and pole sitter Justin Haley, in the No. 99 Braun Foundation Ford Mustang, and held the position for much of the race until the No. 99 of Haley was contacted by a lapped car and forced off course, losing 4 positions.  Buffomante then inherited the lead and comfortably held it for the majority of the race.  

Buffomante would be joined on the podium by Mike Cope Racing teammates Lawrence Loshak, in the No. 5 Pennzoil Platinum/ MOMO/ ETE Reman Chevrolet Camaro, who battled back from as low as eighth, and the resurgent Justin Haley, who recovered from fifth position, after the contact, to finish third.  

“I just focused on staying clean,” said Buffomante.  “Obviously there were a lot of people going off, a little oil, there was grass on the track—I was worried about getting grass on the grill and overheating.  Things got a little hot at the end, so I started short-shifting it; but the biggest thing here for me is Mike Cope Racing 1-2-3 on the podium with the “Arrive and Drive” program—the cars are awesome.  Justin (Haley) had the win, there was no doubt about it, he had the pace all weekend, but he went one way and a lapper took him out.  It’s as simple as that. I feel bad for him, but he’ll get his first win soon.”

The TA2 top five was completed by Kyle Marcelli, in the No. 96 New Field Inc. Chevrolet Camaro, and John Atwell, in the No. 02 A&J Lab Portal Chevrolet Camaro, as they finished fourth and fifth, respectively.  The TA2 class top ten also featured, in order, Steve Kent, Jr., Gar Robinson, Jordan Bernloehr, Curt Vogt and Shane Lewis.  An unusually high seven drivers were unable to finish the race due to a variety of mechanical issues.  

On his way to victory lane Buffomante would turn the fast lap of the race, a new track record 1:53.839, but he comes away with the greater prize— solidifying his position atop the TA2 points no matter how slight that might be. 

“It’s going to take speed to bring this championship home,” said Buffomante.  “You can’t just come out here and coast around, these guys are too fast—especially the guys under the Mike Cope tent.  I thought it was going to be a great points day; then I hear Justin had fallen back to fifth and thought ‘that would be a heck of a drive to get back up here,’ then he ends up in third!  We just have to be fast every weekend.  It’s how you stay out of trouble; it’s how you gather up points.  There’s no holding back; there’s no conservatism. It’s just too competitive here.”

Lucas Schott Grabs Jamboree Victory September 23, 2016

Lucas Schott Grabs Jamboree Victory

SPRING VALLEY, Minn.—Friday night shows have been very good for Lucas Schott when the United States Modified Touring Series comes to Southern Minnesota.

Two years ago, at 18 years of age, Schott captured his first USMTS win during the 16th Annual Featherlite Fall Jamboree and he did again this year by leading all 42 laps Friday night to score a $5,000 payday.

Schott earned his second USMTS win less than two months ago just a few miles down the road at the Chateau Raceway in Lansing.

From the pole, ‘Cool Hand Luke’ exploded to an eight-car-length lead within the first two laps of Friday’s Featherlite Fall Jamboree feature and flawlessly maneuvered through heavy lapped traffic for most of the contest to beat Thursday’s winner, Cade Dillard, to the finish line by less than two seconds.

“It was an awesome race track with all the rain they had this week,” Schott said in Widow Wax Victory Lane. “It’s been a good weekend so far and I’m looking forward to tomorrow night.

“I was just going through lapped traffic the best I could and I saw Cade show his nose down there once. I was just kind of saving my stuff in lapped traffic but once I saw him I knew I had to start passing some of these guys.”

While Dillard searched for a way to get around Schott, he also had his hands full with Brandon Davis who stayed in the mix the entire distance before settling for third.

Jason Hughes, who secured his second straight and third overall USMTS national championship on Thursday night, was a close fourth with Chris Brown snagging fifth place.

Ricky Thornton Jr., Rodney Sanders, Craig Thatcher, Josh Angst and Travis Saurer rounded out the top 10.
