Matt Miller Wins Johnny Appleseed Classic May 29, 2016

Matt Miller Wins Johnny Appleseed Classic

ROSSBURG, Ohio (May 29, 2016) – Matt Miller, from Waterville, Ohio, came out of “retirement” and won the Sunoco American Late Model A-Feature. It was the fifth time in the last six years he has won on Memorial Day weekend at Eldora.

“The track conditions are the way we like it,” said Miller, who started 11th. “I haven’t raced in a while – I raced last week – but we had a little rust on the driver. I had a horrendous restart in a heat race there. The car was phenomenal and we put the right tires on. It was a matter of being smart and not putting ourselves in a bad positon. I love racing here and I love racing in front of the fans here.”

The strong performance by the 2005 Dirt Late Model Dream winner and Rick DeLong team puts them amongst the favorites for the 22nd running of the $100,000-to-win Dirt Late Model Dream Weekend in just 10 days time.

Richmond, Indiana’s Duane Chamberlain led early, but he suffered mechanical issues while leading with 13 laps to go.

Veteran Jeff Babcock, from Wayne, Ohio, finished second after starting 10th. Joe Godsey was third, while Scott James and Rusty Schlenk rounded out the top-five.

Cook Scores First Career STSS Victory at Thunder Mountain May 29, 2016

Cook Scores First Career STSS Victory at Thunder Mountain

CENTER LISLE, NY — This time, Chad Cook sealed the deal.

Cook, the Deposit, N.Y., driver who calls Thunder Mountain Speedway his Saturday night home, earned the most prolific win of his career on Sunday night, topping the Waymart Building Center/Sharkey’s Fuels ‘Lightning on the Mountain’ for Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series Fueled By VP big-block/small-block Modifieds.

Cook earned $5,420 for his efforts in the event, which was shortened by four circuits to 46 laps from its originally scheduled distance of 50 laps by rain. The event was Round No. 3 of the Halmar International North Region.

“We’ve been close before,” noted Cook, who finished second in the 2014 ‘Lightning on the Mountain’ and last September’s Wade Decker Memorial, both high-profile events at the three-eighths-mile. “It feels good to get one.

“I knew we had a good car in the heat race. I had to stay out of trouble during the feature starting where I did (ninth).”

 Cook was patient early in the main, while pole starter Matt DeLorenzo set a torrid pace out front. DeLorenzo, in his debut at the track with the BBL Companies No. 3D, came under pressure from eighth-starting Danny Creeden at the halfway point. However, as the leaders raced into traffic in turn three, DeLorenzo was forced to spin, bringing out the yellow on the 28th lap.

 On the ensuing restart, Cook drove the Mike Costello-owned No. 222 around the outside of Creeden to take the lead. A quick caution slowed the pace and Creeden went to the pits with a flat tire.

 Once in front, Cook first fended off Tyler Siri – then an emerging Mike Mahaney in the Jim Shear-owned ‘X’ ride – to score the win. He received $5,000 from the posted purse, a $200 bonus from Sharkey’s Fuels and $220 in lap money for the effort.

 With rain falling, the event was deemed official on the 46th lap. Cook celebrated Victory Lane in the rain.

 The win was Cook’s first-ever in a Short Track Super Series-sanctioned program.

 Mahaney, of King Ferry, N.Y., parlayed his first start of the year in the unlettered Shear mount to a strong runner-up finish after winning a heat race early in the night. Anthony Perrego of Montgomery, N.Y., was quietly consistent in the Gary Mann-owned No. 55, starting and finishing third. Jerry Higbie of Newburgh, N.Y., surged from 13th to finish fourth and track regular Colton Wilson of Dryden, N.Y., drove the Pat Lynch-owned No. 42 to a fifth-place result.

 Stewart Friesen of Sprakers, N.Y., pitted with right-front issues on lap 31 and recovered to finish in sixth position. STSS North Region point leader Erick Rudolph of Ransomville, N.Y., advanced from 24th to finish seventh as the event’s Trackside Products Hard Charger in the Chrysler Racing mount. Completing the top-10 were Creeden of Wurtsboro, N.Y., and Cropseyville, N.Y.’s DeLorenzo, recovering from their earlier issues, and Ryan Jordan of Dryden, N.Y.

Dave Zagaiski Victorious at Berlin Raceway May 21, 2016

Dave Zagaiski Victorious at Berlin Raceway

MARNE – Dave Zagaiski was asked how bad he wanted to win Saturday night's Outlaw Late Model feature race after he parked his car in Victory Lane.

"Did you watch the last couple of laps?" Zagaiski said. "That's how bad I wanted it. That's how bad."

Saturday's win was the first for Zagaiski, who has been racing at the Berlin half-mile since 2007. He resides in Armada, so it takes him about three hours to get to Marne on race day.

Zagaiski was not to be deterred Saturday, though. He started seventh in the feature and was able to avoid a multicar wreck on lap four. Flash forward to the waning laps. Zagaiski was running second to Ross Meeuwsen with six laps to go in the 50-lap feature when caution bunched the field back up.

Zagaiski restarted on the outside of Meeuwsen and was able to power by him once the green flag dropped. Zagaiski then held off Meeuwsen the rest of the way.

"We have been strong for awhile, but we have had a lot of bad luck, a lot of things go sideways for us," Zagaiski said. "The car has been good. I said it earlier, but Nick Fisher and Brad Yonker prepare this car, and I'm just the lucky guy who gets to drive it.

"It's a Benson car, and they deserve a lot of credit. Johnny Benson is one of my very good friends, and he is a big reason why I'm still racing here. They took me to the next level."

Bicknell Takes Merrittville Checkers May 21, 2016

Bicknell Takes Merrittville Checkers

THOROLD, ONT – Pen Centre and Premier Equipment opened the first Holiday Doubleheader of 2016 with 5 first time winners visit Victory Lane.

“We made a few changes just before feature time,” said Bicknell the 23 time Merrittville Champion, “thanks to the fans for coming out each week … thanks to my crew and our track prep crew – there was lots of bite … I could flat foot it anywhere on the track. I didn’t want to make any mistakes or clip a guardrail … I could see Erick (Rudolph) coming.”

Todd Gordon was first to lead the 35 lap Feature with Scott Wood in control the first time down the backstretch. Almost as quickly as Ryan Susice took over the runner-up spot – Bicknell took control of third. The three leaders would drive away from the field.

Susice would soon challenge Wood for top spot but by lap 10, Wood was still in control. Susice would lose second to Bicknell and by the front stretch of lap 12 was the new leader.

By lap 15, Bicknell had opened up a lead of almost a ¼ lap ahead of quite a race between the 38’s of Susice and Wood with Erick Rudolph soon joining the battle.

By lap 20, Rudolph had raced all the way to the runner up spot with quite a distance to make up to catch the leader Bicknell. Would lap traffic by lap 25 play a factor?

Everyone surely had to watching the drive of rookie Gary Lindberg who was in the borrowed and newly lettered Niagara IceDogs OHL Eastern Conference Champs #96 of Fred Carleton.

Lindberg broke into the top 5 after getting by Gordon and before the checkered flag would take 4th from Wood. Using lap traffic to his advantage, Rudolph was able to close to within a couple car lengths.

Bicknell and Rudolph were followed by Susice with Lindberg and Wood as the top 5.
