Tyler Bare Scores Third Victory at Virginia Motor Speedway July 8, 2017

Tyler Bare Scores Third Victory at Virginia Motor Speedway

Jamaica, VA – 2015 Victory Lap Pro Late Model Champion Tyler Bare of Rockbridge Baths, VA left no doubt in anyone’s mind that he is a contender for this year’s championship with a very convincing win in the Pro Late Model 35 lap feature at Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway. Bare would sweep the outside of Davis Lipscombe of Mechanicsville, VA out of turn 2 to take the lead on lap 3. Once out front Bare was able to fend off a couple of challenges for the top spot from Corey Almond of Appomattox, VA in the later stages of the race to score his third win of the season. “This Rocket XR1 performed flawlessly tonight, I can’t thank my crew enough for giving me such a hot rod, commented Bare in WhosYourDriver.org victory lane. Lipscombe and Bare led the field to green with Libscombe taking the lead heading into turn 1 with Bare right on his bumper. On the next circuit Bare rocketed around the outside of Lipscombe out of turn 2 for the lead, one he would never relinquish. Behind his the battle all race long was for the second spot as Almond, Justin Williams, Matt Quade and Lipscombe took turns in the runner up spot. Defending Champion and current point leader Williams brought out the first caution with a flat right rear tire that would send him to pit road. Williams would work his way back to fourth but could not get to the front to challenge for the lead. Two late cautions allowed Almond to make a run at bare but each time the leader was up to the task and held on to take the win. Rounding out the top five were Corey Almond, Matt Quade, Justin Williams and Davis Lipscombe.

Brett Kressley Wins First-Ever Stevenson Memorial at Big Diamond July 8, 2017

Brett Kressley Wins First-Ever Stevenson Memorial at Big Diamond

FORESTVILLE, PA. -- For once, Mother Nature gave race fans at Big Diamond Speedway a break.

An early-evening shower could not stop Big Diamond Speedway from celebrating the 37th running of the Stevenson Memorial on a night when the track remembered not only Georgie and his father George, but the loss of five of the speedway’s racing family members over the past few weeks.

Brett Kressley scored his first win of the season and his first-ever win in the Stevenson Memorial in the Steel & Metal Service Center 358 modified feature which earned him a $4,000 pay day for the 30-lap event.

In the 30-lap 358 modified feature, Kressley took the lead at the start at the race from his pole position as he and outside pole sitter Ray Swinehart jumped out to an early lead on the field.

On a lap 3 restart, Frank Porreca’s car got sideways resulting in an 11-car pile-up on the frontstretch which brought out a 15-minute red flag as the track crew did an excellent job in getting the race back underway in a short time. All drivers in the accident were OK.

When the race resumed, Kressley once again took off from the field while a four-car battle for the second was begging to shape up behind him which include two-time winner Craig VonDohren.

By lap 8, Kressley began to extend his lead over the field and five laps latter he was working lapped traffic.

VonDohren would track down runner-up Swinehart during those laps and then worked to his inside of Turn 4 by lap 15.

At this point, Kressley’s lead was more than a straightaway as VonDohren took over the second spot at the start of lap 16.

From there, VonDohren had clear track while Kressley worked lapped traffic, allowing VonDohren to cut the lead down to a straightaway by lap 22.

Kressley would see his big lead erased when the caution came out for Swinehart on lap 26 who lost his right front wheel in Turn 2.

Kressley was able to maintain the lead on the restart as Ryan Godown drove under VonDohren for second in the apex of Turns 1 and 2 before VonDohren raced back under Godown for second on the backstretch.

Kressley would go on to score the win and became the fifth different winner of the season by .540 seconds over VonDohren with Godown settling for third.

Jeff Strunk came from 18th to finish fourth while 15th-place starter Duane Howard finished fifth.

“The track was real nice and fast tonight and luckily we had a pretty good starting position,” Kressley said. “The restarts are not always my best thing and I’m learning as we go race-by-race. I saw Ryan (Godown) and Craig (VonDohren) right behind me so I knew that I couldn’t make a mistake.”

Sixth through 10th were Rick Laubach, John Willman, Mike Lisowski, Shawn Fitzpatrick and Kevin Beach Jr.

Fuqua Bags $5k in Tom Wilson Memorial BBQ Bowl July 2, 2017

Fuqua Bags $5k in Tom Wilson Memorial BBQ Bowl

July 2, 2017  |  by Sam Stoecklin

Night two of the 12th Annual Tom Wilson Memorial BBQ Bowl completed the race weekend at Central Missouri Speedway as 83 drivers signed in for the night. USRA Modifieds came out in full force with 38 cars. Twenty-six additional USRA Modifieds along with the 12 locked in cars from night one then took to the track in four heat races as drivers were in search of valuable passing points. Heat race wins went to Darron Fuqua over Gunner Martin. Heat two saw Justin Johnson in victory lane with Dean Wille second. Jim Moody chose to requalify for the night and claimed the victory in heat three over Kerry Davis. Ryan Middaugh found his way to the lead over Aaron Marrant in the final heat race. USRA Modifieds later returned to the track for their B-Main, and it was Nathan Gold who claimed the win. Fuqua quickly established himself as a front runner for the weekend as he captured the 20-lap scramble over Davis, Moody and Martin before the 24-car starting grid for the 50-lap finale returned to close out the night. Matt Dotson and Fuqua started on row one with Fuqua taking the early lead. Dotson tried repeatedly to make a bid for the lead on a smooth, yet difficult track condition. Fuqua then found his rhythm and pulled away from Dotson and Johnny Scott inside the top three. The first caution flag in the event waved on lap 11 for a spin involving Shad Badder and then again on lap 17 for Chad Lyle’s spin in turn four. Fuqua continued his dominance and pulled away from Dotson and Scott before Tim Karrick. drew a caution at lap 26. Just as things were beginning to heat up for the lead and about to be interesting with the leaders close together behind lapped traffic, the caution flag flew again to dismay of fans hoping to see some side-by-side action on the difficult track. Scott and Dotson had a fierce battle going throughout the night in second as did Shultz and Stormy Scott for fourth. The late-race cautions were for Moody and Dennis Elliott, who both suffered flat tires. Kevin Blackburn was also a victim of a flat tire during the closing laps. When racing resumed, Johnny Scott went for an opening on Dotson in turn three but ran out of real estate and wound up spinning from third in the field. His spin set up a final dash to the checkers. Dotson came to life for the race's closing laps and pulled to within a few feet of Fuqua, especially in turns one and two. On this night, however, no one found a way around Fuqua, who drives the No. 87 car and collected his 87th career main event victory. It was Fuqua’s second career win at the Central Missouri Speedway, and his biggest win to date. Dotson gave it all he could to win his second CMS special event of the year but had to settle for second. Schulz was a solid third in the rundown with Stormy Scott fourth and Marrant fifth.

Tim McCreadie Steals the Spotlight at the Big Show June 27, 2017

Tim McCreadie Steals the Spotlight at the Big Show

MALTA, NY – June 27, 2017 – Larry Wight took the lead from Stewart Friesen on a lap 74 restart, but Tim McCreadie pounded the cushion to go from fourth to the lead on lap 77. McCreadie then led the final 23 laps of Brett Hearn’s Big Show 9 to claim the $10,000 winner’s share at Albany-Saratoga on Tuesday night. It was McCreadie’s first win since he won at The Dirt Track at Charlotte in November 2011.

Friesen took second and Matt Sheppard took third from Larry Wight when he jumped the cushion late in the race and had to settle for fourth. Hearn rounded out the top-five.

“I’ve been trying to run this race for a while and take some of Brett’s money,” McCreadie said, tongue-in-cheek following his first Super DIRTcar Series win since 2011. “He always makes more than us and it’s nice to take $10,000 from him once and a while.”

Wight started on the front row with Max McLaughlin for the 100-lap Feature. Wight drove his No.99L to the point position at the drop of the green flag while Stewart Friesen raced into second from the third starting spot.

McCreadie was quickly on the move from his sixth starting spot and used the same outside lane to take second from Friesen at lap 17. Twenty laps in, Wight found his way into heavy lapped traffic as the race stayed green. At lap 22, Friesen took second back from McCreadie while Wight was able to race freely through the traffic.

Friesen caught the leader on lap 42 and passed Wight to take over the lead on lap 46. Friesen held the point just as the first caution of the race waved at lap 50 when Rich Scagliotta got turned around in turn two.

When the race restarted on lap 59, Friesen held off Wight’s charge while Sheppard took third from McCreadie. The top-five maintained their spots, with Hearn in fifth, until the second and final caution at lap 68.

The final restart with 74 laps complete produced all the action at Wight retook the lead from Friesen in the outside lane while McCreadie made his move from fourth to second before taking the lead three laps later.

“I couldn’t really hit the bottom at all and when we had cold tires we could roll the middle pretty well,” Wight said. “It seemed to be that if we got too much heat in the right-rear, the car went away on us. I don’t know if it was me being too hard on it or if we just need to do a little more work on the car itself to get it to run with that hot tires.”

Before Wight could worry about getting too much heat in the right-rear tire, McCreadie used the outside lane to drive to the lead.

“I just got lucky,” McCreadie said in Victory Lane. “Those guys were hunting the bottom and I had been up there banging the cushion for probably 70 laps and I just figured the only shot I had was to try and go in above it into (turn) one and it happened to stick. It could have easily went the other way, but we’re happy tonight.”

With eight laps to go, Wight jumped the cushion while running second and fell to fourth as both Friesen and Sheppard raced past him. Friesen caught McCreadie over the final five laps, but couldn’t get close enough to regain the top spot for the win.

“Our Halmar car was good on the long run, which is cool,” Friesen said. “It’s something we haven’t really had all year. Second to a guy like that, I mean there aren’t too many guys that can run a curb like that and put it where he needed. We’ll take a good second. We had a great long run car and it was good. I’m proud of everybody.”

“I didn’t know how many laps were left, but I saw him poke (the nose) once or twice,” McCreadie said of Friesen’s late challenge. “It was really kind of dusty once you caught lapped traffic. It wasn’t that you couldn’t maneuver, I just couldn’t really see through the center of the corner to put my right-rear on the cushion so it slowed my entry down and my whole corner down.”

Sheppard held on for a third-place finish, his third straight top-five finish and fifth consecutive top-five result to start the season.

“We had a really good car there in the middle of the race,” Sheppard said. “We really didn’t need that lap 68 caution. I was just rolling by Larry Wight for second and I don’t think anybody wanted to be third on that next restart. Timmy was third on the restart before and that’s how I got by him. Then I got pinned down there and just lost some ground. I started rolling again there at the end, but it was too little too late.”

Wight was happy to earn a top-five finish, but naturally would have preferred to hold on for the win. Mostly, Wight was surprised McCreadie was able to use the outside lane to take the win.

“I never thought anyone could get the top to work with it that far out and as nasty as the cushion was, but he must have been free enough where he could lean on it,” Wight said. “It seemed to be that if I went up there it would pull the nose and the car was a handful up there.”

Erick Rudolph was the 811 Dig Safely New York redraw bonus eligible driver as the eighth starter. He raced to a sixth-place finish in the Feature event. Pat Ward, who raced to an 11th-place finish, was the Pole Position Raceway Fast Qualifier. Series driver Peter Britten received the Speedy First Aid Hard Luck award after he was the first car out of the race at his home track.
