Alan Fink Grabs Opener at Brewerton Speedway May 12, 2017

Alan Fink Grabs Opener at Brewerton Speedway

In the 25 lap SUNY Canton Sportsman feature, defending track champion Ron Davis III would set the early pace at the front of the field.

With 5 laps complete, Davis and Alan Fink were in a two car breakaway as they battled for the lead. Brent Joy, Dave Marcuccilli and Billy Clark raced for third through fifth.

On lap 6 Fink found the bite he needed as he drove by Davis into the lead.

At the 10 lap point, Fink held a few car length advantage over Davis as he was putting cars a lap down. Clark, Marcuccilli and Joy still showed in the top five.

With 10 laps to go Fink was on cruise control as he opened a full straightaway lead over Davis and Clark.

Over the remaining laps and no cautions to tighten the field up Fink cruised to the popular win. Ron Davis III, Billy Clark Jr., Dave Marcuccilli and Tony Finch II finished second through fifth.

VanderBeek Wins Summit Showdown at Kennedale May 12, 2017

VanderBeek Wins Summit Showdown at Kennedale

One of the most entertaining main events of the season took place Friday night at the Kennedale Speedway Park, followed up by one of the biggest celebrations of the year after Zack VanderBeek notched his first United States Modified Touring Series victory since early last September.

A top-to-bottom smooth, slick racing surface allowed drivers to race anywhere they felt good, and the usual suspects were in their comfort zones making the most of their favorite path around the 3/8-mile dirt oval.

The next-to-last feature race in the Summit Racing USMTS Southern Region presented by Production Jars saw Clyde Dunn Jr. take control from the outset with Sybesma Graphics Pole Award winner Cade Dillard glued to his back bumper on the high side.

As the 40-lapper reached the halfway mark, thick lapped traffic played havoc with the leaders and three-time USMTS national champion Jason Hughes took advantage of the situation.

Hughes dispatched David Winslett for fourth on the seventh lap, and then picked off Tyler Wolff for third with 11 laps in the books before darting between both Dunn and Dillard to swipe the lead away on lap 21.

Seventeenth-starting Ryan Gustin followed into the second spot one lap later, and narrowly edged in front of Hughes on lap 29 when the race’s fourth yellow flag waved and sent Hughes back to the point for the restart.

With Hughes was pedaling through the middle of the corners and Gustin churning away on the top, VanderBeek quietly worked his way from his seventh-row starting slot and drove underneath six cars in nine laps to sit third for the restart.

VanderBeek passed Gustin for second after green flag racing resumed, and then bolted ahead of Hughes to lead the 31st lap.

From there it was all ‘The Z-Man’ as the 32-year-old from New Sharon, Iowa, claimed his first win of the season, his first in Kennedale and snapped a 36-race winless streak dating back to Sept. 2, 2016.

Worth $3,000, it was the 37th USMTS win of VanderBeek’s career and gave him sole possession of seventh on the all-time wins list, breaking a tie with Jon Tesch. It was also the first checkered flag for chassis no. 1 by VanderBuilt Race Cars—his debut creation.

Chris Brown, who started right behind VanderBeek in 15th, got around Hughes in the late stages of the race and finished second while Gustin followed his teammate across the finish line in fourth.

R.C. Whitwell was fifth, Dillard held on for sixth, Stormy Scott was seventh, Dereck Ramirez earned an eighth-place check and Wolff fended off Joe Duvall for the ninth position.

Reutzel Victorious in Lucas Oil ASCS Classic May 11, 2017

Reutzel Victorious in Lucas Oil ASCS Classic

Scoring his first victory of the season against the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, Aaron Reutzel out-dueled defending series champion Sam Hafertepe Jr. in the KC Klassic presented by Racinboys.com at the Lakeside Speedway Thursday night.

Greeted in victory lane first by his son, Carson, the win is Reutzel’s 14th career Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour victory.

“You know, Sam and I have been able race each other clean so hats off to Sam for that. I felt the bottom was there and I was watching lapped cars as I was catching them and none of them were running the top. I wasn’t sure if it was because they couldn’t run up there or not, but I finally did see a nose get under me so I went all out and that’s when Sam went by me, but luckily I was able to get back by him,” commented Reutzel. “This a big win for my guys. We’ve been knocking on the door for a while to get a win.”

Battling early on with Matt Covington, the pair were wheel to wheel at both ends of the four-tenths mile oval for the first three laps before the red lights blinked on for Cody Ledger who ended up going for a ride in the first two turns.

Challenging the low line on the No. 87 on the restart, Reutzel was able to hold off Covington’s No. 95 with Sam Hafertepe, Jr. in tow. Running the top in one and two and the hub in three and four, Aaron was able to garner some breathing room as Hafertepe moved to the runner-up spot on Lap 11.

Starting to work into slower traffic as the race moved past the half-way point, the top three were all within striking distance with the trio utilizing multiple grooves in hopes of gaining the advantage. Building his momentum, Hafertepe had the run. Rolling off the second turn, Hafertepe snagged the top spot on Lap 18. Crossing down the track, Reutzel returned the move in kind as both drivers navigated the bottom side of the Speedway. Having run a diamond line to catch and pass Reutzel, the change of line by Hafertepe was due to a lack of tear-offs.

As Hafertepe explained, “I wanted to keep running the top, but it got to where I couldn’t see the wall anymore and I didn’t want to junk the car.”

Trailing the No. 87 by 0.668 seconds at the drop of the checkered flag, the win by Reutzel stopped Hafertepe’s win streak at five. That ties the Texas native with “The Texan” Gary Wright who went five in a row in 2005. Hafrertepe did, however, set a series record as the first driver to open the season with five consecutive race wins.

Covington posted his best finish of the season with a third-place showing in the T&L Foundry No. 95 with Josh Baughman crossing fourth in the FK Midwest No. 17. Dustin Morgan completed the top five in the Ark Wrecking No. 93.

Terry McCarl ran to a sixth-place finish with Tony Stewart moving from 10th to seventh. Wayne Johnson was the night’s CP-Carrillo Hard Charger, advancing six positions to finish eighth. Danny Lasoski from 12th grabbed ninth with Johnny Herrera completing the top 10.

With a field of 36 on hand, four heat races went to Baughman, Hafertepe, Reutzel and Covington who was the night’s FSR Radiator High Point driver with his win from eighth in his heat race. Twin B-features were topped by Blake Hahn and Jack Dover. Provisionals were taken by Kyle Bellm and Skylar Gee based on their owner points. A regional provisional was awarded to Danny Thoman.

Sheppard Steals The Show At Fayetteville May 6, 2017

Sheppard Steals The Show At Fayetteville

FAYETTEVILLE, NC— May 6, 2017— Brandon Sheppard led all 50-laps during the World of Outlaws Craftsman® Late Model Series 10th race of the 2017 season at Fayetteville Motor Speedway. Sheppard’s win at the 3/8-mile track marked his ninth career win.

“We’ve been working really hard on this Rocket Chassis,” said Sheppard. “I want to thank Mark and Steve and everyone at Rocket Chassis for letting me drive this thing. It’s awesome. We’ve been working really hard lately to get ready for these Carolina tracks and Tennessee tracks because I’ve always struggled a little bit at those places so it definitely feels good to be getting a win and a top-three [last night].”

Tyler Erb started the feature on the outside of the pole and was heavy on the pedal trying to run down pole-sitter Sheppard throughout all 50-laps. The feature saw six cautions due to tire troubles. During every restart Sheppard was able to create an impressive lead over Erb and the rest of the field. In one lap Sheppard was able to gain up to a 1.643 second lead proving how much of a power house he truly is.

Erb was able to reel Sheppard in a few times giving the crowd a glimmer of hope that he could pull off his first ever World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series win come the checker flag. Erb may have not pulled off the win tonight but it is just a matter of time.

The young driver from New Waverly, TX is one of the most consistent drivers in the Series this season. He is currently second in the Series points standings and the only driver in the top-four of points who has not had a Series win this season.

“I sure hope [to land first win soon],” said Tyler Erb. “I’ve been putting in a lot of work lately. I can’t thank everyone enough who supports us.”

Series-Veteran Rick Eckert also found his way to the podium for the first time since his win at the 2017 season opener at Screven Motorsports Complex.

Some drivers were not so lucky come the checker flag at Fayetteville Motor Speedway. Frank Heckenast Jr. had a tough break on the last lap of the feature as he got a flat tire on the backstretch making him slow from his top-10 position.

Timothy Culp Takes Top Cash at Ark-La-Tex Speedway May 6, 2017

Timothy Culp Takes Top Cash at Ark-La-Tex Speedway

Vivian, Louisiana (05/06/17) – Louisiana-native, Timothy Culp became the fourth different winner of 2017 on the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) presented by Lucas Oil tour on Saturday night. The pilot of the #c8 Rocket Chassis scored the $2,500 victory at Ark-La-Tex Speedway.

Gene Boyter’s Ark-La-Tex Speedway played host to the tour on Saturday evening, and a last-to-first charge in his heat race presented Culp with the New Vision Graphics Pole Position for the 40-lap finale. He was joined on the front row by fellow Louisiana native, B.J. Robinson.

Culp paced the field for the first circuit, but it was Robinson who jumped to the top spot on lap 2.

Lap 10 found Culp edging ahead of Robinson to retake the lead, and one circuit later Gavin Landers spun to draw the caution.

On the ensuing restart Robinson jumped the cushion in turn 2. He would be able to recover from this mistake, but not before he lost a handful of spots.

Culp went on to survive a mishap with a lapped car just before the halfway point on his way to his first CCSDS victory of the season. He was followed across the finish line by 8th-starting Billy Moyer Jr., while Chandler Petty, Jack Sullivan, and Garrett Alberson completed the Top 5.

Billy Moyer Jr. received the Larry Shaw Race Cars Hard Charger Award for advancing from his 8th starting spot to a runner-up finish, while Robert Baker received the Henryetta Ford Hard Luck Award after engine issues early in the evening forced him to scratch from the program.
