Sanders Grabs $40,000 at Master at Cedar Lake Speedway June 16, 2018

Sanders Grabs $40,000 at Master at Cedar Lake Speedway

Incredibly hard racing, endless passing for positions, charges from the back to the front and a couple of heated exchanges were all part of Saturday night’s Modified Masters finale at the Cedar Lake Speedway, but the one constant was Rodney Sanders who led all 70 laps while the war was waged behind him.

From the outside of the three-wide front row, Sanders grabbed the lead at the drop of the green flag and never wavered from his high line around the high-banked clay oval in New Richmond, Wis., fending off challenges early from Dereck Ramirez, late from Cade Dillard and 11 caution flags.

In the end, the 28-year-old from Happy, Texas, netted his 83rd career USMTS victory and a big, fat check for $40,000 for his efforts.

The yellow flag waved three times during the first nine laps—first for Tyler Wolff’s flat tire on lap 4 and again two laps later when contact between Terry Phillips and Dustin Sorensen in turn 4 which sent Sorensen careening toward the infield and collecting Lucas Schott.

Then on lap 9, USMTS Hunt for the Casey’s Cup national points leader Johnny Scott looped his machine in turn 2 while hounding Sanders for the lead.

After things settled down, Sanders continued his march at the front with Ramirez and Dillard, who started eighth, lurking in his tire tracks.

Meanwhile, Ryan Gustin was finding his rhythm. Coming into the night ranked 55th out of 62 drivers in passing points Friday night, ‘The Reaper’ clawed his way through his Last Chance Qualifier, the “C” Main and the “B” Main to garner a spot in the 26-car main event.

After starting 23rd, Gustin had just slipped past Ricky Thornton Jr. for the seventh spot when the caution came out to slow the action with on lap 31.

Another quick caution came out after the restart and saw Zack VanderBeek duck into the pits and return at the tail of the field, and the third caution in two laps waved on lap 32.

That’s when the fireworks started between Gustin and Thornton. Diving into turn 3 after the restart, Gustin slid up to take the spot away but contacted the left front of Thornton. In the next left-hander, Thornton drove in deep and slid to the top but Gustin was there and the two made hard contact at the top of turn 2.

The result was Gustin suffering a broken rear-end while Thornton hooked the cushion and barrel-rolled several times before coming to a stop halfway down the banking. After a heated discussion between the all-star racers, both cars were too damaged to continue but neither driver was injured.

Dillard got around Ramirez on the restart, and pulled up to the rear bumper of Sanders but could never complete a pass for the lead. Ramirez grabbed the spot back a few laps later, only to relinquish second-place back to Dillard with 16 laps remaining.

After surviving 10 cautions, the 11th and final slow-down with nine laps to go did not deter Sanders from the biggest payday of his career as he drove to a four-car-length cushion at the checkered flag while Dillard settled for a $20,000 runner-up finish and Ramirez earned $10,000 for third in the 48-minute contest.

Dirt late model ace A.J. Diemel, who looked to be on his way to his first USMTS win on Thursday night before mechanical gremlins sidelined him, finished fourth in Saturday’s battle between the Best of the Best while Jason Hughes returned to the track with an impressive fifth-place run after starting the race in 22nd.

Cedar Lake Speedway legend Jimmy Mars saw his MB Customs chassis take the top two spots while he turned in a sixth-place effort in the 70-lapper.

VanderBeek bounced back to score seventh, Joey Jensen was eighth, Adam Hensel crossed the finish line ninth and Jake O’Neil rounded out the top 10 finishers.

All of the starters earned no less than $2,000 for taking the green flag.

Sheppard Dominates at Brewerton Speedway June 15, 2018

Sheppard Dominates at Brewerton Speedway

CONCORD, NC – June 15, 2018 – Defending Super DIRTcar Series Champion Super Matt Sheppard has officially picked up where he left off last season. Sheppard put Big-Block Modified drivers everywhere on notice, after a dominating green-to-checkered flag, 100-lap victory. A full third of the field watched the no. 9s streak by as he lapped up to position 10. Sheppard was quick in Time Trials and narrowly scored a Heat Race win over veteran Brett Hearn. The no. 9s pilot then picked the pole position in the Dig Safely 811 Redraw. Only two cautions slowed the action and Sheppard was able to fend off two Deckers and a Phelps in his wire to wire win.

Matt Sheppard now has 60 Super DIRTcar Series point-paying wins to his credit and this was his fourth Series win at Brewerton Speedway. Shane Andrews discussed the win with Sheppard in Victory Lane: “It’s nice to come back to Brewerton and park it in Victory Lane. The car was really good at the bottom for most of the race but towards the end of the race I could feel the track start to change and I moved up to the middle. I was pleasantly surprised at how well the car worked up there.”

Sheppard’s crew was not 100% sure on how they wanted to set up the car. “We had a lot of question marks before the Feature on how to go setup-wise. We ended up just putting it back exactly the way it was the last time we were here.” Sheppard came into the Showdown at Sundown with a strong run in non-Series dirt modified races. “It’s been good. When you’re up you gotta enjoy it because you never know when you’ll be down again.” Very few Super DIRTcar Series have eclipsed the 60-win mark. “It’s pretty cool being a part of that group, knowing the group of guys that followed the Series throughout the years, the best in the business. It’s a real honor put my name in the record books.”

Billy Decker was about as down on a runner up finish as anyone could be. Although the finish was a vast improvement over the last race, Decker is searching for more. “Sheppard was quicker the whole way though the race. We weren’t as good as we needed to be. These upcoming tracks finish a lot like this one does, so hopefully we’ll learn some things.” For the second race in a row Jimmy Phelps brought the 98h home on the podium. “It’s good company up here in the top 3. We’ve got some momentum going.”

The 100 lap Feature was only slowed for caution flags twice. The first one on lap 19 took the wind out of the crowd as home town favorite Larry Wight slowed to a near stop in turn four. Unfortunately, his night ended right there with a power steering failure and the no. 99L was scored in position 31. The other caution was for Danny Varin on lap 44. He too would pull into the pits for the rest of the Feature, ending his night. There was very little attrition overall and 27 of the 31 starters were running when the checkered flag fell.
Billy Decker took home the Billy Whitaker Cars & Trux Fast-Time Award with a lap of 14.285 seconds around the high banked Brewerton Speedway oval. Pat Ward, Billy Decker, Matt Sheppard, and Tim Sears Jr. enjoyed Heat Race wins as well.

Spatola Nabs Second Allen Memorial Win June 9, 2018

Spatola Nabs Second Allen Memorial Win

Mike Spatola had one of those nights where all went well as he cruised to the checkered flag to win the 22nd annual “Pappy and Bob Allen Memorial at Fairbury American Legion Speedway on Saturday.
Spatola also grabbed a check of $2,000 for being the winner.

 
There were 14 late model drivers who qualified for the 35-lap, Allen Memorial with Myles Moos turning heads by posting fast time of 13.153 seconds. Spatola and Kevin Weaver won their respected heat races.

Spatola took a healthy lead at the start, with Scott Schmitt, Weaver, Billy Drake, and Derek Chandler trying to keep up with the race leader. After an early caution period, Spatola maintained the lead as Weaver took second from Schmitt and Chandler got by Drake for fourth.
 
As the track began to take rubber, drivers ran single file on the top. Caution fell on lap 21.

With Spatola safely in the lead, Schmitt snuck by Weaver for second. Debris caused another yellow flag on lap 24. The restart saw Weaver reclaim second from Schmitt and Moos take fifth from Chandler. After a final caution on lap 29, Spatola left his competition and took his third win of the year at Fairbury and second Allen Memorial race.

“We didn’t expect the track to rubber up like it did,” Spatola said. “The car was a little free. I think we made the wrong call on tires, but it was still good. This car is amazing. No matter where I want to go, I am able to put it there. The car is everything I could hope for.”

The remainder of the top 10 were Weaver, Schmitt, Drake, Moos, Bill Hough, Steve Thorsten, Chandler, Jeff Curl and Glen Thompson.
