Mayhem In The Mud Friday and Saturday at Lakeport Speedway

 

Monster Trucks, Boat Races, Mudd Boggs and Jalopies will all be creating Mayhem in the mud at Lakeport Speedway this Friday and Saturday Night. Fans will be presented with 2 nights of Monster Trucks with the Trucks from Straight Up Racing taking the field both nights.  Friday night will also be the final race in the 2016 Mudd Bogg Challenge with drivers competing for championship status.  Jalopie Races will be happening on the infield Saturday along with the Monster Trucks and then at the end of the night, the finale of the Lakeport Speedway Asphalt Track will be the ever popular boat races!  

 

Boat races normally happen on water but since there is no water at Lakeport Speedway, the boats are towed behind vehicles.  The track is slick, the boats slide and the drivers run into their opponent’s boats while trying to protect their boat that they are towing.  It is carnage and fun to the extreme.  Fans decide who wins with a cheering vote at the end of the night so drivers really try to put on a show!

 

Racing Promoter David Furia enjoys putting on an end of the year tribute to the incredible support of the racing community.  “We have had a great year of motor action and I cannot thank the racers, their family, my crew and the fans enough for their parts in making this year such a success. I am proud to put on these shows right here at home and look forward to the fans coming out and having a great time at the races this weekend. Straight Up Racing puts on a really cool show and we are fortunate to have 2 nights of trucks, and truck rides.  We are also bringing on some of our most popular racing activities with the Mudd Boggs, the boat races and the newest class of racers, Jalopies. I am really stoked to have this awesome night of racing action!” 

 

Straight up Racing features trucks like Rock Star, California Kid, Skeletor, Canadian Tough Guy and Identity Theft.  They also present two ride on Monster Trucks, Western Warrior Ride Truck and Hot Stuff, a modified classic Fire Truck.  

 

Single day tickets and discounted 2-day passes can be purchased ahead of time online at Brownpapertickets.com or the night of the show. Single day tickets are $15 for anyone 12 and over, $12 for ages 5-11 with 4 and under being free. Two-day passes can be purchased at $25 for 12 and up, or $20 ages 5-11.  

 

The last race at Lakeport Asphalt Speedway will be an exciting one with Monster Trucks, Mudd Boggs, Jalopies and on the pavement boat racing this Friday and Saturday Night.

SpeedZone Raceway Fall Classic results, September 23-24, 2016

Oshkosh, September 24 – The 2016 racing season at the Oshkosh SpeedZone Raceway officially came to a close with the Fall Classic featuring  2 days of racing on the 1/3 mile clay oval.     A total of 197 different teams competed with champions crowned in feature action Saturday night.

The Street Stocks started off the feature portion of the weekend with a 25 car field taking the green flag.  Jeff Richards sat on the pole and led the opening circuit  before Jeff Wicinsky took command and started to open a gap on the field.  Richards controlled the runner up spot with Jeff Jungwirth, Dan Knaus, Brady Baldry, Shawn Haydon, Alex Crapser and Kevin Bogdanovic all swapping positions in the lead pack.      Wicinsky and Richards pulled away  from the field after lap 10 and with Jungwirth and Knaus leading the pack behind.   Crapser was the big mover steadily advancing as the field started to spread out.    By lap 20. The leaders were still comfortably out front, but the field was bunched for the third spot.   Jungwirth was in command of third with Crapser working into fourth,   Knaus, Gary Kasperek, Paul Diefenthaler and Hayden were right behind.

A spin brought out the first caution of the race on lap 21, erasing the big lead Wicinsky and Richards had on the field.   Stacking everyone foe the restart.    Richards charged to the lead on the restart, but a mix up started a chain reaction , forcing the second and final caution before a lap was completed.    Kasperek stalled up high in turn three and out of the corner, Knaus rode the wall down the front chute before stopping pas the start finish line.    There were no injuries  and the field was restacked again for the final 8 lap run.     Richards again charged under green for the final time to take the lead with Diefenthaler making a charge to move into second a lap later.  Jungwirth, Crapser, Paul Ambrosius and Wicinsky were bunched right behind.    Richards was able to hold the lead to the finish for his first street Stock feature win of the season.    Diefenthaler, the 141 Speedway track champion, was right behind to finisih second.    Crapser, the defending race  champion, was able to wrestle into the third place finish.    Ambrosius made the strong run  over the final laps to place fourth.  Jungwirth finished fifth and Wicinsky rounded out the top six.

 

Larry Richards brought the 25 car Grand National field to the green and swapped the lead back and forth with Brian Vinney, Jr until the first caution on lap 6 for a spin.    Kenny Richards was able to work into the top spot after the restart and in two lap, brother Jeff, was running second.    The front three opened a gap with the field trying to sort out behind.    The leaders were the same at the half way point with Roger Lee now holding fourth with Larry Richards, Tim Doehling, Steven Wirtz and Dustin Weiss  grouped behind.   With 10 laps left, lapped traffic was in play but the leaders negotiated and remained tight in their 3 car pack.    A spin brought out the final caution on lap 26, setting up a 4 lap dash, with the entire field now bunched behind the lead trio.

Kenny Richards was up to the challenges from Jeff behind over the final four laps and collected the checkered flag for his first win here this season.    Jeff took second with Doehling and Lee working into third and fourth at the finish.  Vinney was fifth and Wirtz rounded out the top six.

 

It took three tries to get a lap completed in the IMCA Modified main, but then it was flat out hard core racing for the 30 lap contest.   Steve Schneider finally led the field under green and was able to open a lead right away while, Kevin Feck, Todd Dart, T.J. Smith, Eric Scribner,  Mark Joski, Mike Mullen and Brian Drexler ran bunched behind.  By lap 10, Schneider had opened a solid lead with Smith, Mullen and Feck in the top four.   Mullen made his move into the runner up spot and started to eat into Schneiders lead.    By the mid point, Mullen had chewed up about ½ of Schneider’s lead and was now about 6 car lengths behind and on the move.   2 time track champion, Marcus Yarie, had worked his way from the 17thstarting spot into fourth, and then into third on lap 18.  Yarie also started to close the equal gap to catch Mullen.  Both Mullen and Yarie charged ahead and with 5 laps left were nose to tail with Schneider.      Schneider continued his race long lead,  as Yarie started to work on Mullen.  The pass to the runner up spot took a couple laps to pull off, which allowed Schneider to gain a couple car length advantage again.   Yarie continued his march and was right behind as the white flag dropped.   Schneider was able to hold off the charge over the final lap and completed the bookends for the year, having won the season opening feature, and now the Fall Classic final feature.    Yarie and Mullen flashed by to complete the top three.    Feck, Smith and Drexler rounded out the top six.

 

The IMCA Stock Car headliner put a field of 25 cars on the grid with 2 time defending track champion, Travis Van Straten drawing the pole for the Classic event.      It took several tries to get a lap in and each time Van Straten pulled into the lead.    Once the green was out, Van Straten pulled away from the field,    Several cautions during the race prevented a runaway.     By the mid point of the race, Joe White was already hounding the leader when John Heinz, Jerry Winkler and Greg Wichman worked to the front.     After a final restart on lap 19, White and Heinz battled for the runner up spot for a couple laps allowing Van Straten to gain a car length margin.      Van Straten capped a strong season winning his 8thfeature.   Heinz took second after starting 15th.   Winkler took third over White.  Wichman was fifth and Kevin Hebbe rounded out the top six.

 

Randy LeMieux, Jr drew the pole for his first visit to the SpeedZone and made good use of the starting spot, wrestling the lead from Brian Bruechert after the first lap of the IMCA Sport Mod main was complete.    A pair of cautions on lap 5 bunched the field but LeMieux was ready to set the pace once the green reappeared.    Bruechert, Kenny Richards, Scott Besaw, Shawano Speedway track champion, Jordan Barkholtz, Wyatt Block and Jason Vandenberg bunched up in chase behind the leader, preventing every attempt to pull away over the rest of the non-stop race.    From mid way, LeMieux had his hands full at the point with Richards and Barkholtz running side by side for second and several times alongside the leader.   LeMieux was able to hold off each attempt and pulled off the exciting win in his first trip to the Zone.     Richards and Barkholtz flashed by right behind the winner.  Vandenberg ran his best race of the season securing fourth.   Kyle Raddant and Block rounded out the top six spots.

 

The Dirt Devil event was the final feature of the Fall Classic weekend.    Ben Meyerhofer grabbed the early lead with Kasey Gross, Clavin Stueck, Jordan Klemmer and Chris Maas right behind.    The field started running 2 ands 3 wide right at the start and a lone caution slowed the pace on lap 8.     Meyerhofer was still in command with Gross, Stueck, Brody Rivest and Brian Johnson next in line.  

Rivest started to pick his way to the front and was joined by Shaun Bangart and Rodger Braun.   Rivest pulled into the top spot on lap 11 with Bangart following on the next lap.    For the final half of the race, it was a six car bunch for the lead.   Bangart tried both inside and outside runs and was scored as the lead a couple times over the final laps, but Rivest was able to charge back.   Meyerhofer, Stueck and Braun were also in the group.     Rivest and Bangart were side by side for the final 3 laps and out of the final turn, Bangart made a final attempt to the inside  as the pair crossed the line in a near photo finish.    Rivest, in his first ever visit to the track, was awarded the win by inches, over the former 2 time track champion.   Meyerhofer, Stueck, Braun and Mitchell Lee Fairbank flashed by to complete the top six.

 

The staff and management of the Oshkosh SpeedZone Raceway would like to THANK all of the drivers, crews, fans and sponsors for their support throughout the 2016 season.      Despite all of the controversy during the season, the announcement was made prior to the features, that weekly racing will continue at the track in 2017, starting in early May.

Foltz Bowl Compact Winner

 

DeGraff (9/24) ; Shady Bowl Speedway hosted a full program of stock car racing Saturday (9/24). The rural oval hosted the All American Challenge for the front wheel drive cars. The feature was 100 laps and turned out to be crowd pleasing event with cars racing side by side and bumper to bumper all the way. New Carlisle driver Josh Foltz debuted a new car and right off the trailer it was fast. The race came down to a two car battle between Foltz and Nick Barrett. Kevin McCoy paced the 25 car field the first 27 circuits before giving way to Barrett. Barrett battled with Foltz until Foltz got by. It was smooth sailing for Foltz after that as he put his Ramrod Motorsports ride in victory lane. The win was the fourth of the season in the division for Foltz. Barrett finished second, with fast qualifier Jimmy McElfresh, Ryan Smith and Larry Adams rounding out the top five. Adams was crowned as track champion. Foltz was the dash winner.

The newly formed COLA late model series was also on hand. It was the third race of the season for the series. The event got off to a rough start as early leader Tyler Mahaffey had a suspension issue and crashed hard in turn two. Mahaffey was not injured, but the car suffered heavy damage. Cody Robinson of Dayton took over the lead on the restart and pushed his Miami Valley Mfg. sponsored ride to his first Bowl win. Buck Purtee, Jim Lewis Jr. Don Mahaffey Jr and Matt Parsons claimed second thru fifth. Mahaffey Jr. was fast qualifier. Purtee took the dash win and Parsons the heat race.

In tuner racing Austin Eaton of Belle Center had his DeGraff Service Center sponsored Honda running strong, as he set fast time and won the feature. The win was the second of the season for the talented youngster. Bo Hoelsher was second after leading in the early stages of the race. Third thru fifth went to Terry Eaton, Matt Jackson and Brad Worley. Jackson took the dash win and wrapped up the track championship.

 The 50 lap “Run What Ya Brung” street stock feature had a different look for fans. Cars sported roof wings and side boards in an effort to gain an edge in aerodynamics. Quincy driver Josh Smith dominated the event in his Camaro sponsored by N&W Garage. Smith dedicated his win to his dad Jerry who will celebrate his 50th birthday this week.  Shawn Stansell, Jim Lewis Jr., Josh Sage and Kyle Stager took second thru fifth. Stansell was the dash winner, with Josh Longstreth taking the heat. Purtee was fast qualifier.

The pure stock main capped off the nights action, with Sidneys Rob Bryant winning his sixth feature of the season in his McIntire Painting backed Chevy. Jason Purtee was second, and locked up the championship for the division. Zack Doolin was third, Rodney Roush was fourth with John Eastman fifth. Purtee carried the checker for the dash.

Scott Marquis was the winner of the spectator drag race.

Shady Bowl will resume racing on October 22, with “Monster Maddness” will take place.

NAPA WCS BLOWOUT CHECKERS CLAIMED BY MUMAW, SCOTT, DAUGHERTY, DELLINGER & B. HENSEL; PERRINE & CLINE WIN NEW FEATURES ON FRIDAY NIGHT

Orrville, Ohio

Saturday, September 24, 2016

By Mike Swanger

The 4th annual Ohio Dirt Blowout presented by Kar Connection closed out the racing season at NAPA Wayne County Speedway for 2016 with some wild action in all class'.  The OVSCA rolled into Orrville's Historic Oval for the third time this season and for the second time, Wooster's Danny Mumaw captured the win.  Driving the Finishline Auto Body, Crown Investment and the ABR Farms #16, Mumaw would take the pole position starting spot and lead every lap of the 25 lap event. The early portion of the feature was marred by several cautions and a red flag.  Andre Layfield and Brad Haudenschild would tangle on the opening lap that sent both cars to the pits with Layfield unable to return while Haudenschild came back and finished seventh.  Dennis Wagner would stop the action on lap four as he bounced off the turn four wall and rolled for the red flag as he was in second at the time. Mumaw would bolt out to a big lead on the restarts as Jordan Ryan took over second until lap 11 when Chris Myers slipped past and Jason Dolick would hound Ryan for third. Jamie Myers, Shawn Hubler and 20th starting Clay Riney were charging hard for fifth. On lap 18, Hubler would try a power slide in turn three and got by Jamie Myers but made contact with Dolick, who spun. Hubler was charged with the caution and stopped his car on the frontstretch to protest and was disqualified when he got out of his car. At that point, the red flag came out for a fuel stop as the number of caution flag laps had run over the limit. The final six laps would go non stop as Mumaw, the Fisher Performance Sprint track champion for 2016, would pull away for his third win of the season as Chris Myers secured second place while Ryan held off Riney, Dolick and Jamie Myers for third as they finished in that order. Jamie Myers, Ryan and Layfield won the heat races. In the second heat race, Dennis Wagner and  Joe McEwen made contact going down the backstretch that would send McEwen flipping into the turn three catch fencing. He would walk away ok.

 For the Harriger Towing Super Late Models, it was the final night of the Attica Raceway Park/ NAPA Wayne County Speedway Series and with second place Matt Irey not showing, Ashland's Ryan Markham would lock up his second Series title just by starting the feature. Shinnston WV's Robbie Scott made a rare appearance to NAPA WCS and started on the pole and at the drop of the green flag  took the lead as 4th starting Markham popped into second. Markham tried every line he could to overtake Scott but never could in the first half of the race. JR Gentry was working his way to the front and passed Larry Bellman on lap seven and closed in on the two leaders and would take second from Markham on lap 13. Two circuits later, Markham would slow and bring out the caution with a flat tire as he would return to finish 7th and the ARP/WCS crown in hand. The last ten laps would go nonstop as Scott and his Jenkins Ford, Brian Danials Racing and Slavic Designs #18 would pull away from Gentry for the win. 2016 Track Champion Brad Malcuit finished third as 13th starting Rick Bond, in his final race as he announced his retirement from racing, took fourth and also ended up second in the ARP/WCS Series. Larry Bellman was fifth. Heat winners were Markham, Gentry and Scott.

    The Action Auto Body Super Stocks would be wrapping up their 'Summer Series' races with Tyler Thompson and Paul Holmes tied for the lead going into the last night and it was decided before the race started as Thompson was a no show for the night handing Holmes the crown. Todd Wentz would set the pace for the opening lap as Holmes would power into the lead on the next circuit as Wentz and Gary Hensel Jr. dueled for second as Bob Daugherty moved into fourth. On a restart following a caution on lap six, Daugherty slipped past Wentz and Hensel Jr. and reeled in Holmes. Using the extreme low groove, Daugherty and his Char's Cars, McKenzie Concrete and Metz Machine Shop #21d was able to get alongside Holmes and squeeze into the lead on lap 12. A last lap caution would give Holmes one last chance at Daugherty but the Mansfield driver closed the door to post his third win of the season. Wentz and Hensel Jr. finished third and fourth as Brandon Craver filled out the top five. Wentz and Tim Coen topped the heat races. 

 Alan Dellinger of Hermitage Pa. would go flag to flag for his second win of the season in the Kar Connection Rush Late Model feature. Driving the Sarchione Chevrolet and BWR #8, Dellinger would be challenged early by Charlie Duncan but as the race wore on, Dellinger would slowly expand his lead lap after lap as Duncan would finish second. 2016 Track Champion Justin Chance also locked up the 'Summer Series' title with his third place run as Matt Aber and Greg Beach rounded out the top five. Heat wins were claimed by Dellinger and Aber.

  It was a great season for Smithville's Brad Hensel as he would lead all the way in the WQKT Sports Country 104.5 Mini Stock feature to grab his 7th win of the year, win the 2016 track championship and secure the 'Summer Series' crown. Jerry Adkins, Stephen Crowe and Gary Hensel Jr. battled back and forth for second through fourth before finishing in that order. Matt Miller finished out in fifth. Two red flags took place in the feature as Billy Parsons got bumped going down the back stretch and he would flip into the track exit lane on lap five and then on the restart of that red, a couple of cars got together at the flag stand that sent Colton Priebe barrel rolling down the front stretch. Both drivers walked away. Priebe and Parsons along with Brad Hensel won the heats

 On Friday night, the NEW (Never Ever Won) races for drivers who had never won a feature before in any class or at any track were run and Wooster's TA Perrine took the lead at the halfway mark from Tyler Nicely to win the Super Stock feature aboard the Diamond Stone Quarry, Huntley Trucking and Dave's Hot Rod Shop #16. Barberton's Matthew Cline grabbed the lead away from Mike Barr on lap three of the Mini Stock main and drove the BJP Racing and Ugly Duck Extreme Spor-B-Grille #21x to his first win ever.    

 During the red flag of the second heat of the sprints, as the track crew took time to fix the fence, the kids were allowed to go to the pits for Halloween in September trick or treat and then a costume contest took place with the top five getting cash prizes and several kids getting Jordan Ryan t shirts. There was also an apple bobbing contest during the evening.

 Tickets are now on sale for the 2016 banquet that will be held on Saturday, November 12th at the Pines Golf Course. Go to the website at www.waynecountyspeedway.com for more information about the banquet.

Lakeport Speedway Results 9/17/16

 

The final Lakeport race of the 2016 Lakeport Ukiah Challenge was an exciting, action packed night!  Jammers, Taco Bell Bombers, Legends, and Modifieds battled for those last important points in their quest for championship.

 

It was a great night for the number 14 Pro Jammer of Brandi Robertson with wins in both the heat and the main events. Her wins brought her that much closer in points to points leader Elizabeth Ingalls.  Ingalls leads with just an 88 point lead over second ranked Gene Odell Sr and Robertson holds third position with 250 points separating her from leader Ingalls. With two more Jammer races this season, the championship is really up for grabs!

 

In the Jr Jammer division, Raymond Taylor Jr finished first for the Jr Jammers in both races and Taylor Jr carries a hefty lead over second place points holder Steven Sprague. 

 

Taco Bell Bombers driver Evan Smith took first place in his number 29 for the heat race and Josh Morrison won the main event in the 38X. Points leader Bob Mook was not racing Saturday night and second place points holder Roy Ingalls Jr closed the gap on the points between them. Bomber B division first place holder Bobby Gilbert hung onto his steady lead.

 

Legends driver James Stillman won the heat race and second place points leader Jaden Fisher won the main.  1st place points holder Zach Frasier still maintained his lead in points despite the fact that only he maintains a 178 point lead over second place Fisher with Fisher and Bill Kistenmacher being separated by only 7 points.

 

In the last Modified race of the 2016 season, the action was intense up to the final checkered flag. Adrianna Strugnell won the first Modified heat race while Sierra Furia won the second heat race. Darrin Knight won an exciting first place in the main event.  Darrin Sullivan maintained a lead over second place points holder Furia to take the 2016 Modified Championship.

WARD TAKES 2016 LATE MODEL CHAMPIONSHIP

 

DeGraff OH: Shady Bowl Speedway fans were treated to a full night of racing Sunday that started with an emotional tribute to the 9-11 attack that stunned everyone worldwide fifteen years ago. Shady Bowl promoter Rick Young put the tribute together with the help of local racers. Racers came down on the track from the pit area to take several laps with some cars displaying the American flag with the National Anthem played. A big thanks to all who participated in making the event a huge success. It was also Kids Night with big wheel races and a Penny Scramble. The racing ended with three divisions crowning their 2016 champions.

 The late model feature saw Urbana resident Mike Ward power his Fetz Plumbing backed racer to the feature win, as he was able to hold off Jacob Muncy to notch his fourth feature win of the season. The win locked up the championship for Ward. Ross Klinglehoffer, Buddy Townsend and Russ Bobb rounded out the top five. Fast qualifier Kenny George won the dash, with Caleb Reschar and Bobb winning heat races.

 In modified action Brad Yelton of Bellefontaine was able to hold off fast qualifier Greg Stapleton to win his first feature of the season. Yelton was behind the wheel of the Redskin Motorsports entry sponsored by Continental Express. Greg Jackson was third, with Chris Parker fourth and Logan McPherson fifth. Mike Carroll won the dash, with heat honors going to Steve Snapp and Brian Brandyberry. Carroll was declared the track champion.

 The street stock field saw twenty seven cars take the green flag for the feature. The pace was slowed several times by spins and crashes. When the dust had settled Jim Lewis Jr. of Fairborn was posing in victory lane in his family owned Rubber Seal backed Camaro. The win was the first of the season for Lewis in the street stock. Buck Purtee, Josh Sage, Rodney Roush and James Harding rounded out the top five. Rob Schaeff was fast qualifier, with Sage winning the dash.

UKIAH SPEEDWAY - AUGUST 27th, 2016

SPEEDZONE - SEPT. 2nd, 2016

SPEEDZONE RESULTS - SEPTEMBER 2ND, 2016

Oshkosh, September 2 – September ushers in changes in all we do each year.   The unoffical end to summer, school starting, football, and the end of weekly racing programs.   

A clear, cool day welcomed a nice crowd that watched a field of 160 cars compete in the final regular season racing program of the season Friday night at the Oshkosh SpeedZone Raceway.    In the end, three drivers successfully defended 2015 titles by garnering the crown again in 2016.    One added a second title to his career standings and a pair celebrated first career titles.

 

The Gold Star Racing Products Grand Nationals opened the feature portion of the big night.  Jay Schaalma set the pace early with a tight field behind.   Following a lap 3 caution, Larry Richards used the fast outside line to secure the elad and start to open a lead.  Nick Schumacher, Tim Reichenberger, Kodiak Wirtz, Steve Weber and Jeff Richards were bunched through the mid point of the race.   Over the final laps, Richards maintained the fast pace at the helm and took the checkered.   Schumacher, Wirtz, Reichenberger, Jeff Richards and Webber rounded out the top six.

Entering the night, Larry was only 6 marks behind in the point chase, the battle was won by collecting his 3rd feature flag of the season, but the war was won by son, Jeff, who with his 5th place finish, garnered his second career SpeedZone track title by 4 points.   The results now give each Richards team member, Larry, Jeff and Richard,  2 career titles in the division.

 

Brandon Ross set the pace for the Outlaw Chassis Street Stock feature for three laps before Adam Crapser powered into the lead using the outside line.  Crapser opened a gap as the field sorted out behind.    At the mid point, Crapser held a sizable lead with Paul Ambrosius, Jeff Jungwirth, Brady Baldry, Ross, Jeff Wicinsky and Lexii Ashcraft behind.   A caution appeared on lap 11 for a spin and bunched the field on the leader.      The leader did not look like a rookie on the restart, holding onto the outside line and holding off several challenges before a final caution slowed the race on lap 15.     This time, it was Wicinsky that made the run from third to the inside of Crapser on the restart.   Ambrosius was still in the hunt, and for a couple laps, it was a three bay battle which Wicinsky was finally able to take control of with 3 laps remaining.     Wicinsky drove to his second straight feature win and had Crapser and Ambrosius tight behind at the line.    Alex Crapser, edged Jungwirth for the fourth place finish, with Ashcraft rounding out the top six.   

Defending champion, Steven Gawaresky, used an 8th place finish to secure his second straight division title.

 

The Automotive Supply Company IMCA Modifieds put 24 cars out of a tough 40 car field on the feature grid..   Joel Seegert took charge at the start with Rod Solem, Jeff Bodendorfer, Eric Scribner, Mitch Stankowski and Mike Wedelstadt bunched behind.    The field never separated and the lead pack stayed close over the first half of the race.   The pace seemed to pick up even more as the race moved to the second half, still caution free, Seegert was holding the top spot with Solem, Wedelstadt, Scribner, Jay Matthias, defending and current point leader, Marcus Yarie, andBodendorfer behind.  

On lap 17, Solem and Wedelstadt were able to slip by Seegert and one lap later, the caution appeared and set up a furious challenge for the final 2 laps.   Solem was now the leader, with Wedelstadt, Seegert, Yarie, Scribner and Matthis behind.  Yarie was able to sneek inside Wedelstadt after the restart and moved to the inside of the leader as the pair picked up the white flag.   The anticipated close finish was denied bt a last lap spin the forced the dash to end with Solem collecting his first career division feature win, in only his second race of the 2016 season.   Yarie settled for the runner up finish, but also secured his second straight division track championship.     Wedelstadt took third with Scribner, Stankowski and Brian Drexler rounding out the top six.

 

The Jim’s Auto Repair IMCA Stock cars put a full 26 car field on the track for their feature event with Dan Nelson claiming the lead at the start followed by Dion  Wahl, Chase Parker, Karley Stadler, Harley Simon and David Hoerning.  Hoerning  made his way to the front and was able to take the elad on lap 7.   By the mid point of the race, Hoerning was still in control with Jerry Winkler, defending and current point leader, Travis Van Straten, Jerry Kope, Kyle Frederick and Stadler bunched behind.    

Three separate cautions on lap 13 kept things anxious at the front and when racing finally resumed, Winkle was able to make his way to the front and open a slight lead.   Frederick pulled into the runner up spot on lap 16but could not close in on Winkler, keeping the field bunched for the second place finish.   The final lap was also cut short by a late race caution, which allowed Winkler to take the easy ride to victory lane for the second time this season.     Frederick took the runner up spot over Hoerning.    Van Straten successfully defended his 2015 title finishing 4th and taking the 2016 campaign by 11 points over Winkler.    Sadler finished a strong run holding off Aaron Stolp for the fifth place finish.

 

The Nolte’s Auto Repair and Towing sponsored IMCA Sport Mod division feature also had a stellar 25 car field on the grid with Grant Plonske leading the opening circuit before Brekken Kelinschmidt took command and opened a lead on the field.   By lap 5, Kevin Bethke had moved into second and brought current point leader, Tom Schneider, and Lucas Lamberies along to the front for a tight battle fo the lead.   The leaders started to swap positions as they pulled ahead of the field a bit.    At the lap 10 mark, Kleinschmidt was still in control with Schneider, Bethke, Lamberies, Chris Budzban and Chase Randerson in persuit.  On lap 14, Schneider was able top get to the inside and took over the top spot with Lamberies making a move wide outside to move into second.  The first caution of the race appeared on lap 18 and set up a wild finish with Schneider still leading with Bethke, Lamberies, Budzban and Jeff Steenbergen set for the final dash.

On the restart, Lamberies dove from the outside of Bethke to the inside of Schneider entering turn one.     The slide job attempt saw the car break lose and slide up into Schneider with contact between the two in turn 2.  Both continued with the field storming behind.    The side panel dropped off of Schneiders car on the back chute which the field avoided and Schneider collected the white flag.  As the field made their way out of turn 2 for the final time, the caution was displayed for the debris, ending the final sprint.  Schneider collected his 6th feature win of the season and claimed his first career division track title by 15 points over Bethke, who finished second in the race.   Budzban took home the third place finish with Steenbergen in fourth.  Cody Schroeder made his first appearance of 2016 and finished fifth with Randerson rounding out the top six.

 

The Ellington Mutual Insurance Dirt Devils ran the final feature of the night with Alvin Testroete leading the way for the first 4 laps before Kasey Gross moved into the top spot and started to opena lead.   Jordan Klemmer took up second on lap 6 with current point leader, Chris Maas, moving into third.   Shaun Bangart and Nate Lisowe made up the top five at half way.     The lone caution of the race came out on lap 14 and erased the lead Gross had built.   The field was bunched for the restarrt, and Maas moved into second, and inside Gross.  The pair swapped back and forth over the final laps.  Gross was leading entering the final lap, but Maas made a final push to retake the top spot and secure his third feature win of the season and along with it, his first career track title at the SpeedZone by 8 points over Gross, also finishing second in the race.   Bangert and Lisowe were next with Mike Meier and Klemmer rounding out the top six.

 

The next event on the schedule is the Crashin’ for a Cause Charity Demolition Derby and Thunder over Wisconsin Fireworks Celebration on Saturday September 17.

The track will host their annual Fall Classic on Friday and Saturday September 23 and 24 with an open practice set for Thursday September 22.

SHELDON HAUDENSCHILD DOMINATES PETE JACOBS MEMORIAL AT NAPA WAYNE COUNTY SPEEDWAY FOR SECOND CONSECUTIVE $10,000 TOP PRIZE; DUNCAN & NICELY GRAB CHECKER FLAGS

Orrville, Ohio

Sunday, September 4, 2016

By Tyler Altmeyer & Mike Swanger

For the second time in as many days, Sheldon Haudenschild pocketed $10,000 during Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions competition, this time in dominating fashion during a non-stop event at the NAPA Wayne County Speedway in Orrville, Ohio. Haudenschild, pilot of the Southern Pacific Farms, Finzer Farms, Haudenschild Racing #93, led all 35 circuits of the Pete Jacobs Memorial at 'Orrville's Historic Oval' on Sunday night, crossing the final checkers three seconds ahead of the competition. Now with eight victories on the season, as well as three consecutive since August 28, the Wooster native finds himself on top of the victory leaderboard during Arctic Cat All Star competition in 2016.

"Man, this crowd. Everything about this is just awesome," Sheldon Haudenschild said in victory lane. "That's what this is all about. To win in front of my hometown, is just awesome. Hats off to the entire track crew here tonight. They did a really good job preparing the race track. They worked in the top and bottom for us to race on, which really proved itself. I just can't thank my guys enough for this. Everyone's help is truly appreciated and I wouldn't be here without them."

Sheldon Haudenschild took the Pete Jacobs Memorial green flag from the inside of the second row, eventually driving by Dale Blaney at the exit of turn two, as well as Cap Henry at the exit of turn four, to officially lead lap one over the pair of Ohio natives. Haudenschild's pace at the front of the field was untouchable, gaining a straightaway advantage by lap five using his familiar line at the top of the speedway. Traffic came into play for the first time shortly thereafter, but proved to be no distraction for Haudenschild, stretching his commanding lead to nearly five seconds by lap 18 of 35. Slower cars utilized the bottom lane of the speedway, allowing Haudenschild to work his line without losing momentum. By lap 25, traffic started to intensify with cars battling two and three wide for position in front of the leader. Despite the potential road block Haudenschild continued to navigate the outer rim of the speedway, still keeping a three to four second advantage over second place running Cole Duncan. In repeat fashion, Haudenschild kept his nose clean during the final ten circuits, driving on to score a 14th career Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions victory, his 13th since June of 2015.

"That's just my mindset every time we hit the track, ya know," Haudenschild explained. "You have to make every lap count. I really tried to minimize my mistakes, which was really hard to do on this racetrack. Both corners were different and sometimes got me caught up. I almost got balled up once or twice, but it was all worth it and a lot of fun."

Cole Duncan finished behind Haudenschild after starting on the outside of row two, followed by current Arctic Cat All Star point leader Dale Blaney, Chad Kemenah and Cap Henry. Duncan raced inside the top five during the entire main event, battling in the third position permanently by lap 19, all before sneaking by Dale Blaney in traffic for the runner up spot on lap 24.

 Paul Holmes would set the early pace from his outside front row starting position of the Action Auto Body Super Stock feature but on lap seven of the race, the power plant of Holmes' #68 decided to go up in smoke and end his night. That would put Randolph's Jim Nicely into the lead. Driving the Sarchione Ford, Tires and More and B-Nice Racing #72, Nicely would put some space between himself and Cliff Staley and Bob Daugherty. Staley would slip high in turn two on lap nine and allow Daugherty to move into second.  Daugherty would track down Nicely and on the final lap was on the back bumper of Nicely but could not make the pass coming out of turn four as Nicely claimed his first win of the season.  Staley held on to third in front of Brandon Craver and Jordan James.

 Matt Aber was looking to sweep the Kar Connection Rush Late Model action as he won the heat was and led the first 11 laps of the feature. A caution on lap nine for a spun Bob Fry would double file the restart and Aber elected to start on the outside with Millersburg's Charlie Duncan on the inside. The two would go side by side for the next two circuits before Duncan was able to slide up in front of Aber to take the lead for good and post his third win of the year aboard the Hall's Auto Sales, Kar Connection and Auto Pro #240. Justin Chance would slip past Aber on the last lap for second as Fry finished fourth.

 The next action coming up at NAPA Wayne County Speedway will be on Friday and Saturday, September 23rd and 24th for the Blow out that will feature the OVSCA Sprints, the final race of the Attica Raceway Park/ NAPA Wayne County Speedway Super Late Model Series and the final 'Summer Series' races for the Kar Connection Rush Late Models, the Action Auto Body Super Stocks and the WQKT Sports Country 104.5 Mini Stocks on Saturday night. Watch for details of the NEW (Never Ever Won) races for the Super Stocks and Mini Stocks on Friday night. This will be races for drivers that have never won a feature in any class before.

KING OF THE RING TO LACROSSE SCHEFFLER MEMORIAL TO MARS

Oshkosh, August 26- Friday was a cloudy, late summer day, but that helped track crews provide a smooth fast track for the invasion of the Corn Belt Clash Late Model- George Scheffler Memorial Race at the Oshkosh SpeedZone Raceway.  

Add to that, the final round of the IMCA Modified King of the Ring series

and the Grand Nationals, a field of 109 cars, including 41, Corn Belt series

late models, 47 IMCA Modifieds and 21 Grand National put on a great show.

The Gold Star Racing Products Grand Nationals  put 21 cars on the grid with

Brian Vinney, Jr grabbing the lead at the start with Tim Doehling, Rich Garb,

Todd Ascherlen, Charlie Sancinati and Dan Sorce bunched behind. 

At the mid point of the event, Vinney continued to set the pace with Doehling 

relentless behind.   Sancinati and Sorce were next in line with Jeff and

Kenny Richards moving to the front.

The first caution appeared on lap 13, and Vinney resumed the lead on the

restart.  Doehling held the runner up spot with Kenny Richards moving into

third.  Larry Richards, Sancinati, Tim Reichenberger and Jeff Richards were

right behind.    Doehling was running tight to the inside and on lap 15 was

able to get inside the leader in turn one and on the following lap, took over the lead.  

Kenny Richards followed  and pressure to the inside as well.   

On the following circuit, Richards was able to make a run, getting the nose

inside entering turn one.    There was contact through the corner with Doehling  spinning to the infield out of turn 2, bringing out the caution.    Officials called Richards for the incident and put Doehing back at the point, and Richards retired to the pit.

Doehling was able to lead the final 3 laps with Larry Richards making a solid run on the outside, but Doehling was able to claim his first feature win of the season.

Jeff Richards took third place with Reichenberger. Vinney, Jr and Sancinati flashing by to complete the top six.

 

The third leg of the IMCA Modified King of the Ring saw Marcus Yarie and Benji LaCrosse tied for the series lead.  Both won their heat races, and started the main event in row 2,    It was LaCrosse, that made the early move and took the lead after the opening lap with Dan Roedl, Yarie, Jeremy Christians, Tim Robbins and Brian Drexler behind.    LaCrosse hooked mid way up the track and Roedl was running the outside line.   The rest of the field was bunched2 and 3 wide behind.  Yarie moved up to second on lap 4 and was just behind the leader.   A lone caution for a spin appeared on lap 9, with LaCrosse and Yarie still leading the way.  Roedl was holding third.   Tim Lemirande was the quickest car in the field having moved from his 16th starting spot into fourth for the restart.  Drexler and Christians were still in the top six.   

With the green flag out for the balance of the 30 lap event, is was flat out throughout the field with LaCrosse and Yarie showing the way.     The battle for third remained a tight bunch of cars with plenty of hard racing.    By lap 20, the leaders had pulled away a bit with Lemirande running in third.   Mike Mullen, Drexler, Roedl, Steve Schneider, Chad Bartel and Chris Engels made the group behind.

LaCrosse was running into lapped traffic and was able to move through while keeping Yarie at bay.    That changed on lap 21, when Yarie suddenly pulled off the track to the infield in turn 3, when a belt broke on his car.     All that was left for LaCrosse to do was continue to work traffic and he not only won his second race of the series and third of the season, but clinched the King of the Ring tile by completing the 30 lap contest well ahead of Lemirande, his hard charge secured the runner up spot.    Mullen won the battle for third.   Drexler collected fourth place with Schneider and Bartel rounding out the top six.  

 

The Corn Belt – George Scheffler Memorial feature put 24 cars on the track, and once the green flag appeared, the series pulled off a non-stop 40 lap event for the second straight year.    

It took the first 10 laps for the field to sort out a bit with Chris Simpson in the top spot by that time and Jimmy Mars in chase.   Mars was able to wrestle the top spot away on lap 12 and when the leaders started to get into lapped traffic a couple laps later, it was in a tight 7 car pack.   Despite having Simpson right behind, Mars was able to carefully pick his way through the pack.    Once through, the field continued to string out.  Mars was able to move where he needed to holding the top spot for the rest of the way.   Simpson was able to make several runs, but not a serious challenge for the lead.    The cars behind, made a race long battle for the next five spots.   

Mars collected his second straight Scheffler Memorial check with Simpson taking runner up honors,   Mitch MaGrath spent most of the last half of the race chasing the leaders in third and finished there, with Chad Simpson taking fourth place.    Local drivers, Nick Anvelink and Jared Siefert, rounded out the top six places in the stellar field.

 

The final regular season race will take place on Championship night, this next Friday, September 2 at the SpeedZone.    All six regular season divisions will crown their season champions with racing starting at 7 PM.

Nor-Cal Short Track Championship Series – Round 6
It’s hard to believe that with only one round remaining, our summer series is nearing its end.
Round 6 took place at Delbert’s Memorial Raceway on Sunday, July 24th with the heat of Lake County proving to be quite the challenge of the day.  The crew was hard at work to create a cushion track, but the direct heat was not allowing for it to remain that way. Halfway through the day it was inevitable the track was going to have to be packed down into a blue groove. The riders took it all in stride and finished out another great round of racing. Lap times even seemed to improve since last month; some even more than a second off their best lap times from June.
In an effort to get more people involved, we are offering a discounted entry for any rider that brings a buddy who has not yet raced in our summer series. That’s right, bring a new rider to our program and receive $15 off your first race entry! Even if they have no race experience, they would be perfect for our Beginners Class! If they have no bike, one of our many sponsors, Feel Like A Pro Dirt will have bikes and gear available for rent! So, there really is no excuse for them to not come out and try something different.
(Discount excludes the Pro Money and Open DTX classes. Rider must be new to our race series and must sign up for a minimum of one class)
We would like to thank our sponsors for their support to our program; Hillside Powersports & Marine, Sand n’ Dirt Motorsports, Jitterbean – Lakeport, Furia Motorsports, Feel Like A Pro Dirt, MotionPro, Ramspur Winery, Morteza Farr, D.O.

MUMAW MASTERS NAPA WAYNE COUNTY SPEEDWAY OVSCA RACE; DROWN, HOLMES & B. HENSEL KEEP WINNING; DELLINGER SHOOTS INTO WIN COLUMN

Orrville, Ohio

Saturday, August 20, 2016

By Mike Swanger

 

Although a brief rain shower during the Fisher Performance Sprint last chance race, slowed things down momentarily, the race action was fast and furious on Santmyer Oil night at NAPA Wayne County Speedway Saturday night. The OVSCA checked into Orrville’s Historic Oval for the second time this season with 32 sprinters on hand as Nick Patterson, Brandon Spithaler, Jordan Ryan and Danny Mumaw would collect the heat wins as Clay Riney topped the last chance race. Spithaler and Dan Shetler would would lead the field to the green flag but it quickly came to a stop as the caution would fly for Mark Coleman who got turned around on the back stretch and before everyone got slowed up, Nick Patterson flipped in turn four ending his night. Patterson was second in the track points at the start of the night. On the restart, Shetler grabbed the lead with Jason Dolick right behind with Jordan Ryan and Danny Mumaw in tow. That was the running order for the first five laps as Mumaw would move past Ryan on lap six, overtake Dolick on the next circuit and did a power slide into turn three and shot past Shetler coming out of turn four on lap eight and then start to pull away. Ryan would take over third on lap ten from Dolick and move to second on the next circuit. Action slowed on lap 13 when Spithaler did a 360 spin in turn four but kept going but Jamie Myers spun and backed into the turn four guardrail trying to avoid Spithaler’s spin. The green flag waved for one more lap when track points leader Mitch Harble went for a multi time barrel roll in turn three to stop the action. Harble’s night started out rough as he was running second in his heat race and on the last lap, had the front end break and hit the guardrail in turn four. That forced him to start deep in the field of the last chance race and he earned a transfer into the feature on the next to last lap. The race would go non stop after that with Mumaw and Ryan pulling away from the rest of the field as Chris Myers was the man on the move. Starting 14th, Myers sprinter came to life after the red flag as he had moved into 6th before the red flag but on the restart, quickly jumped into third. With the race winding down Mumaw would slice his way through some of the back markers as Ryan could not make a run at the Wooster driver and Mumaw would put the ABR Farms, FinishLine Autobody and Finzer Farms #16 in victory lane for the second time this season and go from third to first in the NAPA WCS point standing with season championships on tap for next week. Chris Myers finished third with Dolick collecting 4th as Jamie Myers recovered from his spin to take fifth.

   It was déjà vu again in the Harriger Towing Super Late Model feature as Wooster’s Doug Drown started fourth but had the lead before the field completed one lap. JR Gentry and Brad Malcuit would start on the front row and they would stay side by side but Drown would slice right between the two coming out of turn four and take the lead. Gentry would stay close for the next couple of laps but Drown and his Hall’s Auto Sales, Wooster Glass and Kar Connection #240 would drive away to his 6th win of the year. Gentry would cruise to a second as the race for third was a tight one as points leader Brad Malcuit was in a dogfight with Ryan Markham, who is second in the points and just 20 markers behind Malcuit. Markham could pull along side Malcuit several times in the corners but Malcuit would hold him off down the straight aways to claim second and now have a 22 point lead going into next weeks double points championship battle. Cody Scott was right behind Malcuit and Markham to claim fifth. Drown and Larry Bellman, who was celebrating a birthday, won the heats.

   After a couple of aborted starts, the Kar Connection Rush Late Models rolled non stop to the finish as Hermitage Pa’s Alan Dellinger out hustled points leader Justin Chance into turn one and drove away aboard the Sarchione Chevrolet and BWR #8 for his first win of the season. Dave Airgood overtook Chance on lap three to finish second in front of Chance as heat winners Charlie Duncan and Kyle Harper, in his 1st trip to NAPA WCS, filled out the top five.

  Grabbing the lead from his outside front row starting spot, Canton’s Paul Holmes would go flag to flag to win his fifth Action Auto Body Super Stock feature of the season. Points leader Tyler Thompson started 6th and moved into second on lap two and spent all race hounding Holmes for the lead and was able to get side by side a couple of times but could never wrestle the lead away from the #68 of Holmes. Two drivers had their best finishes of the year as Cliff Staley finished third with Tod Beviloqua coming from his 10th starting position to post a fourth place finish as Gary Hensel Jr., who started 11th, rounded out the top five. Heat winners were Staley and Thompson.  

   Billy Parsons would set the pace for the opening five laps of the WQKT Sports Country 104.5 Mini Stock feature but 7th starting Brad Hensel had picked his way through the field and took over the lead on lap 6 and then held off Chris Priebe the final two laps to pocket his sixth win of the season aboard the Smithville based M & S Concrete, DJ Directional Services and JoyRide Transportation #28 and strengthen his point lead. Priebe finished second with Parsons in third follwed by Doug Hensel and Mitch Reichard. Securing the heat wins were Parsons and Priebe.

   Brandon Gardner swept the action in the Flat Track Carts.

   Contingency Connection’s Drivers Rewards of over $100,000 were once again being pursued by the drivers for the night and yearly awards from many National Manufacturer’s.

   Season Championships will be decided next Saturday night, August 27th, with track championships and battles for top ten finishes in the points up for grabs in all class’

SpeedZone results August 19, 2016

Oshkosh, August 19 – A steady all morning rain combined with a very hot,  humid, still night, and a hard working track crew, provided a very racey 1/3 mile oval for racing to resume Friday night at the Oshkosh SpeedZone Raceway, following 2 weeks off.

A field of 118 cars checked in for the activities that produced 2 repeat and 4 first time feature winners this season.

 

The Nolte’s Auto Repair and Towing IMCA Sport Mods were up first with 24 cars taking the green flag.   Brekken Kleinschmidt took the early lead with the cars from mid pack quickly  moving forward and bunching up behind.   Point leader, Tom Schneider, made the move to the lead after a lone caution on lap 5, and opened a lead as the field sorted out behind for the next couple laps.   On lap 9, Jeff Steenbergen and Wyatt Block broke into the top three and set out after Schneider.   Kleinschmidt, Jeff Schmuhl, Colten Van Hierden and Scott Besaw were bunched behind.  By lap 12,  Schneider was joined at the front and the leaders were running through lapped traffic.  Steenbergen was able to slip between cars and took the lead on lap 16 and was chased over the final 4 laps to claim his first SpeedZone feature win of the season.   Schneider took runner up hnors with Schmuhl, Van Hierden, Block and Ryan Besaw rounding out the top six.

 

Nick Goemann led the opening circuit of the Gold Star Racing Product Grand National main with Tim Reichenberger taking over on lap 2.  Tim Doehling, Larry Richards, Chase Solomon, Brian Gilles and Jeff Richards ran behind when the lone caution of the race flew on lap 6 for a 2 car crash in turn 1 & 2.    Reichenberger continued to set the pace with Larry Richards moving to the outside to challenge.   As the mid point passed, Richards pulled off the pass for the lead and set out to hide from the pack behind.   Jeff Richards, Doehlng, Gilles and Brian Vinney Jr were right behind Reichenberger.    Jeff Richards moved into the runner up spot on lap 14 and set out after dad, Larry, and quickly moved behind.   It was a Richards show to the finish with several laps running side by side for the lead.   Jeff finally inched ahead with 3 laps left and drove on to claim his second straight and third feature wins of the season.  Doehling  made the podium finish in third with Gilles, Vinney and Reichenberger rounding out the top six.

 

The Automotive Supply Company IMCA Modifieds also put a full 24 car field on the grid.     Kevin Feck grabbed the top spot on the start and led through several cautions over the first 8 laps.    After the lap 8 restart, Feck was till in command with Steve Schneider taking over second from Tim Robbins.   Point leader, Marcus Yarie  moved from mid pack into fourth.  Mike Wedelstadt and Ed Lemay were right behind.   Feck set a furious pace and held a couple length lead through the mid point of the race on Schneider.   The cars behind  were running in a tight pack.    Feck was still holding the lead margin when a red flag for a rollover appeared on lap 16.    The driver was OK and this bunched the entire field for the final 4 lap dash.

Feck was able to with stand the pressure from Schneider and Yarie and drove to collect his first career feature victory.    Kenny Richards made an impressable first time showing in the top division, coming in to finish 4th.   Chad Bartel made another strong run from the back of the field to take fifth and Robbins was able to round out the top six spots.   

 

The Outlaw Chassis Street Stock feature was a fast and furious event from start to finish.   

Adam Crapser started outside pole and settled right into a groove running mid track.   Jeff Wicinsky took up second and was running the inside of the track and Alex Crapser pulled right up behind in third.   The trio opened a lead on the field over the first half of the race with Adam running his line to perfection.   Jesse Krahn, point leader, Steve Gawaresky, Frank Knaus and Jeff Jungwirth were in a battle of their own a bit behind the leaders.

After half way, the pressure was on up front as Wicinsky was starting to pressure the leader hard on the inside, and they were catching the slower cars at the rear of the pack.     The second group of cars were also starting to close in on the lead pack.     On lap 15,  Wicinsky was getting to the inside of the leader, when lapped cars got in the mix.   On the following lap, out of turn 4, Adam had his momentum  altered when he ran up behind a lapped car which allowed Wicinsky to get his best run at the lead, only to have a spin bring out the first caution of the race and put Crapser back at the point.    Another caution on the restart kept the leaders the same, although Wicinsky was looking to move to the point as soon as he could.    On the final restart on lap18, Wicinsky was able to move to the point, but on the next lap, in turn one, Adam again pulled even on the outside  and brother, Alex, pulled even on the inside, making a three wide run out of the turn for the lead.  Wicinsky was able to outrun the pair into turn three and collect the white flag.     Over the final lap, Adam kept the pressure on the outside but Wicinsky was up to the final run and took his first feature win of the season with Adam Crapser finishing the strong run taking second.   Alex Crapser took third with Krahn, Knaus and Jungwirth rounding out the top six.

 

The Jim’s Auto Repair IMCA Stock Cars were up to do battle with Corey Wegner leading the opening circuit before Kevin Hebbe  moved to the point for 2 laps.   Aaron Stolp hooked up on the outside from mid pack and took over the lead on lap 5.  David Hoerning pulled into the runner up spot on the next lap with point leader, Travis Van Straten, making his way to the front from mid pack, using the inside line along with Jerry Winkler.     Stolp and Hoerning swapped the lead for a couple laps with Stolp again settling into the top spot on lap 9 with Van Straten taking over second.     One lap later, Van Straten secured the  top spot and 2 laps later, Winkler passed Stolp to take the runner up spot and pull up on the leader.   

For the final 7 laps, Winkler tried several times to pull alongside, but could not pull it off.   Van Straten was up to challenge and drove off to secure his 7th feature win of the season.    Winkler took second with Stolp ending up in third.    Hebbe completed his strongest runoff the summer, putting his car into the top 4.   Jerry Kope ran with the leaders over the final half of the race and took fifth with Wegner rounding out the top six.

 

Jordan Klemmer settled into the lead at the start of the Ellington Mutual Insurance Dirt Devil night cap.  By lap 5, Chris Maas, Kasey Gross and Cody Pankow were grouped behind.   Maas worked on the leader and finally pulled into the lead on lap 11.   Pankow pulled off the pass on Gross and  for four laps, the leaders ran side by side for the top spot with Pankow finally taking over the lead with 5 laps left.    Taylor Becher was making a late race run the leaders, but had  his race cut short when his car erupted in flames on lap l8, bringing out the red flag, the only slow down of the race.    He was OK but car was toasted pretty well.    Pankow restarted and drove off to collect his first feature win of the year here while the battle for second came down to the finish line with Gross taking the advantage over Maas.   Wes Langwitz, Klemmer and Seth Hickman rounded out the top six.

 

Next Friday night, the SpeedZone will play host to the 8th Annual George Scheffler Memorial race which will feature the Corn Belt Clash Late Models.   The big night will also feature the final round of the IMCA Modified King of the Ring series.   The Grand Nationals will also be part of the program.    Racing will start at 7 PM.

HARBLE, DROWN, DUNCAN & HOLMES RETURN TO NAPA WAYNE COUNTY SPEEDWAY VICTORY CIRCLE; PRIEBE POWERS TO 1st MINI STOCK CHECKERS

Orrville, Ohio

Saturday, August 6, 2016

By Mike Swanger

 

As the last month of the regular season starts up at NAPA Wayne County Speedway, the points battle for the championships are close and the racing Saturday night continues that way also. On Twin State Auto Racing club night, the Fisher Performance Sprints kicked off the action with Jordan Ryan taking his pole position starting spot and grabbing the lead but a red flag for outside front row starter Shawn Hubler on the start of lap two stopped the action. On the restart, Ryan would quickly open up a gap from Jason Dolick and Newark’s Mitch Harble with Harble taking second on lap four and slowly reel in Ryan. A caution on lap 15 grouped the field together and as the green flag waved again, Harble and the Kempthorn Auto Mall, Fire & Ice Pub and Simpson & Ham Signs #38k, used the high side of the track and powered past Ryan coming out of turn two on the 18th circuit and sped away for his second win of the season. Jamie Myers made a late charge to overtake Ryan for second with three laps to go as Danny Mumaw picked his way through the field to claim fourth from his 14th starting spot. Dolick would fend off Nick Patterson for fifth. Heat winners were Harble and Myers. 

  Last weeks winner and points leader Brad Malcuit would outrace fellow heat winner and pole sitter Doug Drown, of Wooster, into turn one on the start of the Harriger Towing Super Late Model feature and led the way for the first 8 laps when Drown motored by coming out turn four to take the point on lap 9 and the Hall’s Auto Sales, Kar Connection and Wooster Glass # 240 would drive away for his fifth win of the year at NAPA WCS. The uninterrupted feature finished with Ryan Markham in third followed by JR Gentry and Cody Scott.

  Eric Eicholtz started on the pole of the Action Auto Body Super Stock Main and lead the first lap but the front end of his car broke before he started lap two ending his race. Bob Daugherty would inherit the top spot with Cliff Staley and Canton’s Paul Holmes in tow. With the green flag out again, Holmes wasted no time as he went to the high side of turn one and two and leapfrogged over Staley and Daugherty for the top spot. Points leader Tyler Thompson would also get by Staley, who would cause a caution on the third lap as Tyler Nicely would take over fourth. Daugherty was looking at every angle to try to reclaim the lead from Holmes and was able to pull alongside going down the backstretch on the white flag lap but the yellow waved to negate that move. The final lap would see Holmes and his #68 machine hold off Daugherty’s last charge as Holmes collected his 4th win this season. Gary Hensel Jr. came from his 15th starting position and came up short of taking third from Thompson as Jordan James pocketed fifth. Staley, Holmes and Daugherty scored the heat wins.

  The Kar Connection Rush Late Model feature was a nail biter of a race as the top five were all within three car lengths of each other for the majority of the race with Alan Dellinger leading the opening two laps when first time visitor Jason Fosnaught took over for a lap before Millersburg’s Charlie Duncan took over for a lap before Fosnaught reclaimed the point. Dellinger, points leader Justin Chance and Matt Aber joined the two front runners as they swapped positions every lap. Duncan and his Hall’s Auto Sales, Kar Connection and Auto Pro #240 would keep harassing Fosnaught by using the low groove and finally grabbed the lead on lap 14. Aber was charging hard in third place but on lap 16 made contact with Fosnaught and sent him spinning to bring out the caution as Aber was sent to the tail. The double file restart would have both Dellinger and Chance slipping past Fosnaught with Duncan pulling away with the lead. Dellinger kept Chance at bay on the last lap to finish in the runner up position as Aber charged back to take fifth behind Fosnaught. Heat wins went to Aber and Dellinger.

  The last race of the night was the ‘Summer Series’ race presented by All American Excavating for the WQKT Mini Stocks. Killbuck’s Chris Priebe would lead every lap for his first win but it was highly contested all race long. Moose Workman was the first to make the challenge for the lead as he gave way to points leader Brad Hensel. His run at the lead only lasted one lap as he went off the back straight away into the retaining tire to end his night while Workman pulled off before the race went back to green. A caution flag with two laps to go put the field in double file alignment and as the race restarted a lot of contact was made between the front runners but everyone kept going with Doug Hensel and Rod Daugherty momentarily getting past Priebe but he regrouped and shot by those to coming out of turn two and recapture the lead and grab the checker flag. Daugherty edged out Doug Hensel for second as Mitch Reichard and Wes Staley filled out the top five. Priebe, Brad Hensel and Daugherty notched the heat wins.

  The Contingency Connection Racer Rewards worth over $100,000 for the year and the drivers were also competing for the weekly amount of awards again last night at NAPA WCS.

  Next Saturday night, August 13 will see a double header of Sprint Car action as the Fisher Performance Sprints and the BOSS Wingless Sprints will be in action along with a ‘Summer Series’ race for the Kar Connection Rush Late Models and the Action Auto Body Super Stocks on the racing card. The Harriger Towing Super Late Models and the WQKT Mini Stock have the night off.

Ukiah Speedway Results 7/30/16

 

The excitement of paved track racing returned once again to Ukiah Speedway Saturday July 30th.  Braving high temperatures, the track was active with Taco Bell Bombers, Jammers, Modifieds and the infield with T&T Towing Jalopies.  

 

Jammers Driver Brandi Robertson was the driver to beat.  Robertson swept her division for the night taking the win in the both the heat and main races in her number 14. Robertson’s wins moved her up from 6th to 4 th in championship points, but Elizabeth Ingals still maintains the first rank with a close lead over second place Gene O’Dell Sr with only 5 points separating them.  

 

Taco Bell Bombers thrilled the fans with an action packed series of races.  The 96 of RJ Randall scored twin victories in the A Heat Race and Main Event while B Division driver Brandon Verde crossed the finish line first in the B Division Heat Race scoring another victory and solidifying his points lead for the Taco Bell Bombers B Division. Though A Division driver Bob Mook did not have great finishes, he still maintains a healthy championship points lead in the Taco Bell Bombers A Division. 

 

T&T Towing Jalopies flung some mud and entertained the crowd on the infield.  Being an entry level racing division, with less stringent requirements, the drivers are very excited to get out there and show off their skills. Brandon Small took the win in his number 7 for the first Jalopy Heat Race of the night while Wayne Hunt drove his number 1 to the number one position in the second Heat Race. The main event was won by the 707 of Johnny Small in a dusty, mud filled victory. 

 

The Modifieds put on a strong showing with Darrin Sullivan in number 21 taking the win in the Modified heat race but Mike Collins drove number 24 across the finish line first in the Second Heat Race and Main race taking the win in both races. Darrin Knight still holds first position in championship points with 35 points separating him and Mike Collins.

Oshkosh, July 29- In a stark opposite in the weather from a week ago, Knaus Cheese/Weyauwega Star Dairy presented the annual Walk of Fame night at the Oshkosh SpeedZone Raceway under a cloudy, cool breezy night.   117 cars checked in to take on a smooth, shiny 1/3 mile track that saw 5 divisions see repeat winners and one a first career feature flag.

 

The 2016 Walk of Fame class was inducted at intermission and included, Denny Hughes, Jerry “Medina” Smith, Jerry Krueger and Gene Wheeler.

 

It was the Outlaw Chassis Street Stock  division up first with  Brandon Ross setting the pace for the opening three circuits.     Jeff Wicinsky started in the fourth row and used the outside line to  move alongside the leader and into the top spot on lap 4.   Wicinsky was forced to pit on lap 7 which turned the lead over to Lexii Ashcraft.  A lone caution one lap later bunched the field with Dan Knaus, Jeff Jungwirth, Jason Fairbank and Jesse Krahn behind.  On the restart, Jungwirth slipped inside and took over the runner up spot and pulled up on Ashcraft.   Ashcraft was able to hold off Jungwirth and then open a lead over the final half of the race to collect her second feature win of the season.   Jungwirth took runner up honors.   Point leader, Steve Gawaresky,  worked his way into third with 5 laps remaining but could not chase down Jungwirth, taking third.   Dan Knaus, Fairbank and Frank Knaus rounded out the top six positions.

 

Cory Wegner set the opening lap pace for the Jim’s Auto Repair IMCA Stock Cars with Jerry Kope able to take over the lead after a lap 2 restart.   Travis Van Straten, Aaron Stolp and Chase Parker were making their way through the tight pack and on lap 6, Van Straten found his way into the top spot and started to open a lead.   Stolp and Kope  ran for second with Jerry Winkle finally breaking out of the pack and  closed the gap and took over the runner up spot on lap 16.   A final caution appeared on lap 17, erasing Van Stratens lead and giving Winkler a shot at a second straight victory.   Van Straten was up to the task after the final restart and took off to collect his 6th feature win of the season.  Winkler was right behind in second with Stolp, Kope, David Hoerning and Parker rounding out the top six finishers.

 

After an opening lap caution, Mitch Stankowski grabbed the lead in the Automotive Supply Company IMCA Modified feature, setting the pace for the first 3 laps before Brian Crapser took charge before a caution slowed the field.  

On the restart, Chad Bartel took the outside route and took the lead.   Steve Schneider moved into the runner up spot on lap 9 and set out to catch the leader.   Dan Roedl, Kevin Baldry, Mike Wedelstadt, Marcus Yarie and Ed Lemay were working through traffic towards the front.   A spin on lap 18 bunched the field for a 2 lap dash.  Bartel was able to hold off the late charge from Schneider to take his second feature win of the season here.   Schneider, Roedl and Crapser took the top 4 places with point leader, Yarie, able to take fifth ahead of Stankowski to round out the top six.

 

Jason Ebert took control of the Nolte’s Auto Repair and Towing IMCA Sport Mod main event and quickly had point leader, Tom Schneider, work from mid pack through tight traffic into the runner up spot.  Tim Sheppard, Kevin Bethke and Scott Besaw were right behind.   A lap 8 caution slowed the cautious pace of the field with Ebert still in control.   Schneider remained right behind after the restart with Bethke, Adam Peschek, Besaw and Brock Saunders in line.    Schneider was relentless in trying to force an Ebert miscue,  and finally took a different approach and dipped inside at the s/f line on lap 15 and eased into the lead in turn one.  AS final restart on lap 16 allowed Schneider to pull away from the field as a dog fight for second lasted to the finish.   Ryan Besaw moved up over the final laps to take second place along with Jason Vandenberg, making a solid run on the outside to take the third place finish, his best of the season.   Bethke, Ebert and Peschek rounded out the top six.     The win for Schneider allowed him to put his own icing on his birthday cake with his fifth win of the year.

 

The Gold Star Racing Products Grand National feature took the green with Brian Henry taking charge from the pole with Tim Reichenberger, Rich Garb, Tim Doehling, Jeff Richards and Brian Vinney, Jr  behind.     Henry hugged the inside line with Garb and Richards back just a bit at the mid point. Richards was now in second and right behind the leader with Garb taking the outside line.   The lone caution of the race appears on lap 17 and set up a battle to the finish.    Henry lined up in first for the restart with Richards taking the inside which put Garb outside.  Vinney, Doehling and Don Schumacher were behind.   On the final green, Richards and Garb split to go around the leader and Garb was scored in first on the next lap.   Richards was able to pull ahead and Garb continued to attack from the outside.     At the line, Richards took his second feature flag of the season with Garb just off the pace taking second.   Vinney took third place honors with Henry, Doehling and Larry Richards rounding out the top six.

 

Jordan Klemmer led the opening lap of the Ellington Mutual Insurance Dirt Devil feature with Taylor Becher taking over on the second lap.    Chris Maas and Cody Pankow moved into 2nd and 3rd and started to close the gap on the leader,  Wes Lungwitz took fourth by the mid point and the trio spent the next few laps pulling up on Becher.   Becher maintained the lead while the next three were right behind by Lap 12.      Lungwitz tried several times to get inside of the leader and on the final lap, clipped a turn one tire, which knocked him out of contention and gave Pankow and Maas a final run, but Becher held off the charge to claim his first career feature win.  Pankow took second ahead of Maas.  Mitchell Fairbank took fourth, Lugwitz pulled back in line to finish 5th and Klemmer rounded out the top six.

 

There will be no racing at the SpeedZone next week, August 5th, because of the Winnebago County Fair.     Racing will return on Friday night, August 12 with a full six division program starting at 7 PM.

RAYMOND MEMORIAL TO STAPLETON

 

DeGraff OH 7/30: Shady Bowl Speedway outlasted a heavy rain shower that set race time back one hour, but the wait was worth it as fans saw a full program of stock car racing. The main event was a sixty seven lap modified feature to honor the memory of local racer Lee Raymond. Raymond competed at local ovals before joining the ARCA Racing Series. He went on to claim rookie of the year honors and post two series championships.

The sixty seven lap modified feature saw Brian Brandyberry and Steve Snapp battling for the lead. The two made contact with both being sent to the rear of the field. Mike Carroll then took over the lead briefly before fast qualifier Greg Stapleton sped by on lap 34. Stapleton, of Troy set his sights on the checker and went on to win his fifth feature of the season in his Springhills Auto Wrecking open wheeler. Carroll finished a close second, with Chris Parker third, Brad Yelton fourth and Daniel McPherson fifth. Joe Pequignot was the dash winner, with Parker and Greg Jackson winning heat races. Carl Stapleton won the hard charger award, with Greg Stapleton taking home a bonus for setting quick time. The extra pay off came from the friends of Lee Raymond Fan Club.

The tuner division saw DeGraff’s Terry Eaton Jr make a clean sweep in L&B Auto Repair Honda. Eaton set fast time, won the dash and the feature. The win was his third of the season with one coming in the Vores Series . Matt Jackson, Austin Eaton, Justin Pope and Nicholas Philbeck finished second thru fifth in the feature.

 The street stock feature saw Sidney’s Rodney Roush lead the field into turn one.  Roush was never passed and went on to win his third feature of the season in his Roush and Sons Racing Chevelle. The win was far from easy as Shawn Stansell, Jim Lewis Jr. and Buck Purtee all battled for a shot at Roush before finishing in that order. Mike South Jr, was fifth. Rob Schaeff was fast qualifier, Purtee winning the dash. Lewis and Aliza Snapp were heat winners. Purtee and Stansell shared the hard charger award.

The pure stock feature was a hard fought battle, Josh Foltz, Jason Purtee and Rob Bryant trading paint as they battled for the win. Foltz, of New Carlisle went on to post the win in his Whiteline Designs racer. The win was the third of the season for Foltz. Purtee, Bryant, Lane Crabtree and Jeff Binkley rounded out the top five. Purtee set quick time, with Foltz winning the dash.

The winner of the compact feature was Kettering resident Nick Barrett in his Barrett Tool and Technology sponsored four cylinder. He also carried the checker for the dash. Fast qualifier Scott Marquis was second, with Jim McElfresh, Ryan Barrett and Joel Nease following.

Justin Nease edged out Jacob Muncy to win the spectator drag race.

This Saturday (8/6) will see the Bowl the Frazier Night Tribute. The Bowl will recognize Curt Frazier and his family for supporting the speedway. The late models, street stocks, pure stocks, modifieds, compacts, tuners and spectator drag races. Racing will begin at 7.
