Jensen Survives Superior August 11, 2017

Jensen Survives Superior

Joey Jensen survived a rough-and-tumble main event Friday night at the Amsoil Speedway to secure his first United States Modified Touring Series victory in nearly four years.

The 37-year-old from Harris, Minn., snagged the lead from Neil Balduc on lap 13 and remained in front for the final 12 laps to secure his sixth career USMTS win and the $3,000 winner’s paycheck.

More than four inches of rain saturated the Superior, Wis., over the last couple of days, and the moisture played havoc with the racing surface. Despite the best efforts of track crews to keep it smooth, more than half of the 24-car starting field was absent from the feature by the eighth lap.

Balduc, making his first-ever USMTS start, acquired the top spot from Ricky Thornton Jr. after the third lap and paced the next nine circuits before giving way to Jensen, whose last USMTS win came Aug. 30, 2013, at the Chateau Raceway in Lansing, Minn.

Nevertheless, Balduc held on to finish second in his debut while Grant Junghans Rookie of the Year points leader R.C. Whitwell climbed from ninth to third at the finish.

Jake Timm earned the KSE Racing Products Hard Charger Award, coming from 15th on the grid to finish fourth and 12th-starting Craig Thatcher finished fifth. Jake O'Neil, Travis Saurer, Mike Densberger, Thornton and Curt Myers completed the top 10.

Carey Terrance Wins Third Memorial Cup August 10, 2017

Carey Terrance Wins Third Memorial Cup

The 28th Memorial Cup had been rescheduled twice in 2017 and finally this past Thursday night this huge event, which was also the 2nd leg of the Unique Ecigs 358 Modified Series, became official and Carey Terrance was victorious for his 1st win of the year, Jamie Begor became the 7th different Sportsman winner, Junior Delormier swept the Novice Sportsman features, Richard Thorton did the same thing in the Bandit division while Kevin Foster scored win number 1 of the year in Mod Lite.

The 28th Memorial Cup got the green for 50 laps and Carey Terrance out ran Brian McDonald for the race lead into turn number 1 with Lance Willix, Chris Raabe and Corey Wheeler completing the top 5. After a season that has been filled with terrible luck, Terrance was dominant in the early stages of the event as he led by 10 car lengths while Willix, McDonald, Raabe and Wheeler were in a battle of their own for a top 5 spot. On lap 16 the first yellow flew as Chris Raabe slowed while running in 3rd Corey Wheeler also slowed with problems while running in the top 5. On the restart Terrance continued to lead but Luke Whitteker was on the charge as he moved from 6th to 3rd heading into turn 3 and on the charge for the top 2 drivers. At the halfway point Terrance had company as Whitteker was there to challenge but Terrance had a better race car and was able to hold off Whitteker as the laps clicked off. With 15 laps to go Terrance made his way into lapped traffic which brought Whitteker back in the picture with Tim Fuller giving chase from 3rd while McDonald and Willix completed the top 5. As the laps wound down Carey Terrance was caught in heavy traffic allowing Whitteker and Fuller to make it close and provide a great finish for the fans. On this night lapped cars would not be an issue as Carey Terrance put all the back luck behind him to score his 6th career Unique Ecigs 358 Modified Series win, his 1st of 2017 and 3rd career Memorial Cup win. Luke Whitteker would cross in 2nd with Tim Fuller completing the top 3.

VonDohren Wins Pioneer Forrest Rogers Memorial For Third Straight Year August 5, 2017

VonDohren Wins Pioneer Forrest Rogers Memorial For Third Straight Year

BECHTELSVILLE, PA. AUGUST 6, 2017 –NASCAR 358 Modified point leader and defending champion Craig VonDohren scored a three-peat and became the only eight-time winner when he won the Forrest Rogers Memorial/Pioneer Pole Buildings 50-lap TP Trailers 358 NASCAR Modified feature for a $10,000 payday on Saturday night at Grandview Speedway in the races broadcast by RCN-TV, Allentown. The race is run in memory of the founder of the speedway.

During the course of the evening it was announced that the September 16th Freedom 76 Modified Classic, the biggest event of the season, would be run in memory of the late track promoter Bruce Rogers, who passed away in March, and will pay $30,000 to win. More details on this very special event will be released shortly.

VonDohren now joins Fred Rahmer, the ’82, ’83 and ’84 winner as the only driver at the 1/3-mile Berks Co. clay oval to win the prestigious event three straight times.

The defending and current point leader, who broke into the winner’s circle last week, didn’t have an easy time since he first had to battle side-by-side with Colt Harris several laps before he moved into first on the 31st lap and the he outran runner-up Mike Gular, who gave it his all several times, finishing second by a narrow 1.696 margin.

In victory lane VonDohren commented, “it was hard, flat-out racing and his crew worked diligently to repair the car after it got tore up in the heat race. The top was the place to be even though it was good on the bottom and I had to mix it up and run the middle while battling with Gular.”

Mahaney Takes Home $5,000 After Winning The “JACK 50” At Fonda August 2, 2017

Mahaney Takes Home $5,000 After Winning The “JACK 50” At Fonda

Fonda, NY – The “Track of Champions” Fonda Speedway held the Third Annual Jack Johnson Tribute event on Wednesday evening August 2, a 50-lap feature event paying $5,000 to win. When the checkered flag flew it was Mike Mahaney taking the big win in the Buzz Chew #88 Bicknell car, the new car just recently brought out to try an end the frustrating 2017 season Mahaney has had up until now.

Mahaney is no stranger to big money wins at Fonda as back in 2012 he won the opening event of the season known as the “Ice Jam” which paid $4,000. To top that all off he won the season ending event in 2012, also a Tribute to Jack Johnson, worth $12,000 to the winner.

“The track had a lot of grip in it tonight and I was just trying to stay close to the 9S (Matt Sheppard) who was leading early so that if he made a mistake I could capitalize on it,” Mahaney said in victory lane. “Then I was able to make it around Matt and a lap car for the lead.”

When Jim King asked Mahaney in victory lane how he found his ride in the Buzz Chew #88 Mahaney said “I think that he found me.”

Wednesday was a special event honoring a very special driver, one whom promoter Pete Demitraszek said “helped build this house and one of the reasons that Fonda Speedway is called the Track of Champions.”

There was a sea of “orange” in the large crowd that gathered at Fonda for the event which also featured the 12th Annual Hondo Classic honoring the late Hondo Carpenter with Nick Stone the winner of that event while Rocky Warner took home his sixth win of the season in the 30-lap GRIT Series event for the 602 Sportsman.

Guest co-announcer Bill Foley said after the event “to be able to call this race with Jim King honoring Jack Johnson was a thrill.”

Jessey Mueller’s father drove one of the Jack Johnson Vintage cars around the track for pace laps, one of those laps featuring a four wide salute to Jack and all the fans in attendance. When Joe Kriss’ green flag flew it was Matt Sheppard who was the early leader from his pole position start with Mahaney second from the outside pole.

Sheppard pulled away to a straightaway advantage by lap five and was already in lap traffic at that point as seventh place starter Stewart Friesen was the new third place car on lap 13 after getting by Mike Maresca. The first caution of the event was out on lap 13 and on the restart ninth place starter and current point’s leader Tim Fuller made his way into the top five.

Sheppard was in lap traffic again by lap 20 with Mahaney closing in at that point. On lap 22, Mahaney got to the inside of Sheppard in turn two to take over the lead with the yellow flag out again one lap later for the fifth place car of Mueller who came to a stop on the front stretch. Fuller continued his march to the front on the restart, moving into the third position and with 14 laps to go in the 50-lap event, Fuller was the new second place car after getting by Sheppard.

With 10 laps to go the top two of Mahaney and Fuller made it their own race for the win as they pulled away from Sheppard with Mahaney fast on the outside and Fuller quick on the inside. Over the closing laps Fuller would duck inside Mahaney in the turns but Mahaney kept his momentum up each time and kept the lead going down the straightaways.

Mahaney held on for the win in the “Jack 50” followed in the top five by Fuller, Friesen, Sheppard, and 20th place starter Bobby Varin.

“This team stuck with me while I was struggling, but we all hung in there and dug deep,” Mahaney said in victory lane. “It is amazing for me to come back here at one of the tracks that I got my start after having many different rides since in an event this big.”
