Johnny Scott Wins 11th Annual Nordic Nationals May 27, 2018

Johnny Scott Wins 11th Annual Nordic Nationals

Johnny Scott vaulted to victory in a war of the VanderBuilts Sunday night at the Upper Iowa Speedway in Decorah, Iowa, leading the final 21 of 40 laps to score his second trophy in the USMTS Nordic Nationals presented by Weis Buick GMC.

Zack VanderBeek—the purveyor of the one-year-old VanderBuilt Race Cars chassis company—took off from the pole and set the pace for the first ten laps before Stormy Scott showed his fellow front-row-starting teammate a faster way around the 3/8-mile dirt oval.

Johnny Scott, who started third, steered his VanderBuilt around VanderBeek two laps later and began to pressure his elder twin brother, eventually powering by on the high side of turn two to take the lead for good just past the halfway mark.

The $2,850 triumph marked the 34th career USMTS feature win for Johnny Scott, breaking a tie with 2007 USMTS national champ Jason Krohn and leaving him two wins shy of tying Jon Tesch’s 36-win mark.

VanderBeek, who collected his first of 45 career wins here during his rookie campaign in 2005, wound up second Sunday night while Lucas Schott got by Stormy Scott for fourth.

Dereck Ramirez raced from 16th on the grid to finish fifth, earning both the Eibach Spring Forward Award and FK Rod Ends Hard Charger Award. Two-time USMTS national champion Rodney Sanders was sixth, Saturday’s winner Dustin Sorensen wound up seventh, points leader Jake O'Neil earned an eighth-place paycheck, Jacob Bleess advanced ten positions to claim ninth and and Josh Angst rounded out the top ten.

Eckert Sweeps Weikert Memorial at Port Royal May 27, 2018

Eckert Sweeps Weikert Memorial at Port Royal

PORT ROYAL, PA - Rick Eckert of York, Pa., picked up his second straight Ultimate Northeast Super Late Model Series feature victory by leading all 35 laps of night two of the Bob Weikert Memorial at Port Royal Speedway. Eckert picked up $5,000 for his victory after he won the opener worth $3,000 on Saturday night. Track officials did a great job working the track in after a lengthy rain delay earlier in the night, but the track provided a smooth fast surface.

The race saw Eckert jump out to an early lead before a yellow on lap one for Chris Casner who spun in turn four. Jeff Rine jumped into second on the restart and set his sights on catching leader Eckert. A yellow on lap three, and another yellow on lap nine came out for Jason Covert who was suffering mechanical woes. By lap 14, Rine had caught Eckert and was pressuring him as Eckert developed a bad push in his race car. The caution flew on lap 14 as Jared Miley suffered mechanical woes and collected Andy Haus who spun to avoid Miley. By lap 15 the race's hard charger Kyle Lee had worked his way from his 20th starting position to fourth, where he would ultimately finish. A yellow on lap 16 for Mike Lupfer was the final yellow of the event.

From there Eckert pulled away from the field through lapped traffic winning by a straightaway at the finish. World of Outlaws sprint car champion Donny Schatz picked up his second straight fifth place finish.

AJ Diemel Wins Kings Classic at Shawano Speedway

AJ Diemel wins the Gehm’s Club 117 Kings Classic at Shawano Speedway, the opening event for the 2018 DiscountShopTowels.comDirt Kings Late Model Tour.

 

Ron Berna and Troy Springborn led the field to the green flag, right as Berna’s engine expired, causing him to skid into the infield, bringing out the yellow flag. On the restart, Springborn took the early lead, with Justin Schmidt in second. Schmidt raced side by side with Springborn, taking the lead as he worked the outside of the track, on lap 3. While Schmidt started to pull away from the field, Brett Swedberg challenged Springborn for second. Swedberg closed the gap on Schmidt, challenging for the lead on lap 11, but Schmidt held on. Working the high side, Swedberg passed Schmidt to take the lead on lap 12, with Diemel, Springborn and Nick Anvelink following. Diemel moved around Schmidt and set his sights on Swedberg with 11 laps to go. Diemel didn’t get the chance to battle with Swedberg for the lead, as Swedberg’s car drifted up over the cushion and into the wall in turn two, bringing out the second and final caution flag on lap 18. Diemel inherited the lead with the yellow and on the restart got out to a big lead followed by Anvelink, Springborn, Schmidt and Tom Naeyaert. Diemel would go on to win his first DiscountShopTowels.com Dirt Kings Late Model Tour race and be the first driver to visit the Gary’s Old Fashioned Mix Victory Lane.

Anvelink finished second, followed by Schmidt, Springborn, and Naeyaert.

The Stockbridge Engineering Touring Kings started the season with a second place finish by Anvelink, third place finish by Schmidt, fourth place finish by Springborn, Jim Schmidt finished sixth, Chris Engels finished ninth, Tim Buhler finished 11th, Jim Letizia finished 12th, Swedberg finished 18th, and Berna finished 20th.

Four In A Row For Thornton At Boone Speedway May 19, 2018

Four In A Row For Thornton At Boone Speedway

Mother Nature did not win this one from Boone Speedway on Saturday night.  The earlier rain did delay start time by about 45 minutes, but from then on, it was racing as usual.The IMCA Stock Car main event went to Jeff Mueller in his second win of the season, and the man on fire, Ricky Thornton, Jr., made it four in a row in the IMCA Modifieds.

 
Joel Bushore led the field to green in the 20-lap IMCA Modified feature.  Bushore was soon trying to hold back eighth place starter Mike VanGenderen who was sniffing at his heels.  At lap seven, VanGenderen made a nifty move to take the number one spot away, only to have Ricky Thornton snatch it away the following lap.  From there on, it was all Thornton as he pulled away from the field to take a comfortable win. Tim Ward started fourteenth, and finished second, VanGenderen, who is the past two year’s track champion, was third, fourth went to Eric Elliott, and Al “Pep” Wolfgram completed the top five positions.  Thornton has been on a roll at the track this year, winning for the fourth consecutive week.

Williamson Triumphs Over Outlaw Mods at Freedom May 18, 2018

Williamson Triumphs Over Outlaw Mods at Freedom

By DAVE SULLY

DELEVAN, NY- Mat Williamson, from St Catharines, Ontario, continued his early season heroics, capturing his fourth Modified win of the season, the 30 lap feature at Freedom Motorsports Park’s opener on Friday, May 18th. Williamson, who has scored two wins at Merrittville, along with a victory at Lernerville, where he is a multi-year champion, started third in the thirteen car Outlaw Modified field, which allows Modifieds of all stripes to compete. He quickly took second, while polesitter John Venuto, driving a former Gary Tomkins car, drove out to an early lead.

Williamson patiently stalked Venuto for thirteen laps before easing into the lead. That spot was relinquished when the caution flew shortly thereafter, with scoring reverting to the previous lap, but Williamson promptly repeated the move on the restart and took the lead for good. He drew out to close to a straightaway advantage before a caution on lap 28, for a flat tire on the Venuto car, put veteran Billy Van Pelt, up from seventh, on his bumper for the restart. Williamson was able to hold off a brief challenge to win going away.
Brad Rapp finished third, followed by Jimmy Holden and Phil Vigneri III to round out the top five.

Williamson offered, “I took some right front brake out at about half way, and it got a little better. I don’t know if the 84 (Venuto) was second when he got that flat tire. It was unfortunate for him because he had a good run going. We had a good race up front and I’m happy to be here. We had a good car. We got that long green flag run until that last caution. We were just kind of taking it easy. We expected to see Billy Van Pelt late in the race, but luckily we didn’t see his nose and ended up in Victory Lane.”
