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.

Diemel Dashes To Home State Win At Oshkosh May 20, 2016

Diemel Dashes To Home State Win At Oshkosh

OSHKOSH, WI (May 20, 2016) Home-state driver A.J. Diemel scored his first-ever Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory tonight at Oshkosh Speedzone Raceway. In front of a packed grandstand, Diemel led all 50 laps and took the biggest win of his career.

Chris Simpson drove his Cheap Cars/Longhorn Chassis to a second place finish, followed by Jared Landers in the Crop Production Services/Sweet-Bloomquist. Tim McCreadie wheeled the Sweeteners Plus/Longhorn into fourth, and last year’s LOLMDS Rookie of the Year; Brandon Sheppard; in the Best Performance Motorsports/Rocket was fifth.

“I don’t know if we will make it to LaSalle tomorrow night. We may party too hard,” said the 34-year-old Wisconsin native. “We did what we had to do tonight. We qualified well, won our heat, and started up front in the feature. It was great to see this crowd again for the second year in a row. Everyone needs to write in and keep this place open!”

Diemel started alongside pole-sitter Tim McCreadie as he jumped to the lead at the onset of the race. Diemel’s early race dominance was evident when he lapped the hottest driver on the LOLMDS tour, Scott Bloomquist, 18 laps into the race.

Diemel’s winning MB Customs Chassis is powered by a Pro Power Racing Engine and sponsored by Beltline Body Shop, Prestige Custom Cabinetry, Joe Provo RaceWear, and BobCat.

Simpson was gaining on Diemel as the leader was running in heavy traffic. The only caution of the race appeared on lap 34 for Brian Shirley, who had a flat tire. On the restart, Diemel again stayed ahead of Simpson and Landers as he went on to the win.

“I would like to thank Jimmy and Chris Mars and everyone for this MB Customs. My biggest win before tonight was $9,200 for winning the John Seitz Memorial in Grand Forks, North Dakota. We will try to go back-to-back tomorrow night at LaSalle.”

Simpson commented, “I sure didn’t need that yellow. On the restart he [Diemel] took off and Jared was all over me. He tried several times to get by me. It’s all good. We have had a really good car lately, so this is something to build on. We are really pleased with this Longhorn Chassis. To finish second against these guys is awesome.”

Landers recorded another podium finish this year by taking third. “We have had some bad luck in the last few races. We broke two J-bars last weekend. Jason [Durham] and the crew have worked their tails off this week and it paid off tonight.”

Completing the top ten were current LOLMDS points leader Jonathan Davenport, Don O’Neal, Darrell Lanigan, Billy Moyer, and Chad Simpson.

Phillips Finds USMTS Winner’s Circle At Outlaw Motor Speedway May 20, 2016

Phillips Finds USMTS Winner’s Circle At Outlaw Motor Speedway

Terry Phillips survived a late-race charge from Ryan Gustin to take the feature win Friday when the USMTS Casey’s Cup powered by S&S Fishing & Rental invaded the Outlaw Motor Speedway.

A little more than a week after he was inducted into his hometown Springfield (Mo.) Area Sports Hall of Fame, Phillips turned in an effort worthy of a Hall-of-Famer in securing the $3,000 top prize at the High-banked dirt oval outside of Muskogee, Okla.

Phillips took off from the pole position and led the 28 laps of the 37-lap main event before Ryan Gustin snuck by to take command on lap 29.

But Phillips returned the favor four laps later, darted back to the front and never looked back en route to his 23rd career USMTS triumph.

Gustin held off Rodney Sanders for second with Jesse Sobbing finishing fourth and Dereck Ramirez taking the fifth spot.

Coming off of back-to-back wins last weekend, current points leader Jason Hughes had to use a provisional to get a spot in the feature race. After starting 27th on the grid, Hughes found his way around 21 competitors to nab an impressive sixth-place finish ahead of Chad Wheeler, Cade Dillard, Thomas Tillison Jr. and Mike Jergens.

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.
