Shane Edginton parked the No. 5E Performance Auto Sniper in victory lane Friday night, winning the inaugural Howie Schill Memorial at the River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks. The win is Edginton's fifth career NLRA feature win, and first since 2019. Edginton lead lap nine, and the final three laps to pick up the win. Brad Seng and Mike Greseth were also in the thick of it late, as the lead trio fought for the win in the waning laps. Seng was second, with Bryce Sward third, Cole Babcock fourth, and Jason Strand rounding out the top five. Babcock was also the hard charger, as he stormed from the B Main, and the 18th starting spot to improve 14 spots in the main event. Edginton also took the point lead with the victory, and will carry the SRT Specialties and TNT Coatings point leader spoiler into Thursday's race at the Norman County Speedway by 12 markers over Brad Seng.
- Cap Henry opens All Star Midwest Swing with victory in Lake Ozark's Beach Brawl Preliminary
ELDON, Mo. (July 23, 2021) - For the second time this season, Republic, Ohio's Cap Henry powered his way to FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory lane, doing so in spectacular fashion in an all-out brawl at Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Missouri, on Friday, July 23. The victory, earning Henry an $8,000 payday, was accomplished from the pole position, leading early before fading slightly to fourth, all before finding some late race stamina around the bottom to charge his way back to the top spot. Henry now owns six-career All Star Circuit of Champions victories, earning his first of the year at Gas City I-69 Speedway on May 22. "We were so good at the beginning, then I messed up and allowed all of those guys to get by me. It got hairy there a few times, but I'm happy to be standing here," Cap Henry said in Lake Ozark Speedway victory lane, driver of the Lane Racing, Blake's Hard Cider, No. 4 sprint car. "I could see I was making gains, so I had to stick with it. With about five to go, I was starting to struggle a little bit and I was missing the bottom. I knew then that it was time to move up and just get going." Despite starting the 30-lapper from the pole position, Henry's Beach Brawl preliminary campaign was far from a walk in the park. In fact, Henry was forced to battle with some of the sport's finest including Series point leader and recent Kings Royal champion, Tyler Courtney, as well as KCP Racing's Gio Scelzi, and rising open wheel star, Zeb Wise. Scelzi, who joined Henry on the front row, actually earned the initial jump before Henry took command for the first time on lap two. A brief stronghold, Henry's initial command over the field was quick, eventually losing the top spot to Courtney on lap four. A pair of cautions on laps 14 and 17 acted as Henry's saving grace, allowing the Ohioan, who had faded to fourth by lap 12, to power his way back to the top of the running order. Utilizing each of the ensuing restarts to his advantage, as well as the very bottom of the speedway, Henry was back in charge by lap 18, ultimately driving back by Clauson Marshall Racing's Tyler Courtney at the exit of turn four. The main event's final caution appeared on lap 20, this time allowing Zeb Wise to also sneak by Tyler Courtney. Wise, the 2021 Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race winner, did his best to reel in Henry around the very topside of the speedway, but a kiss with the wall on lap 25 sealed Henry's fate; Wise held on to finish second, followed by a hard-charging Christopher Bell. Lake Ozark Speedway's inaugural Beach Brawl will conclude on Saturday evening, July 24, with the $10,000-to-win finale. Series action will then resume on Sunday, July 25, at Humboldt Speedway in Humboldt, Kansas, where the All Star Circuit of Champions will hit center stage as the first-ever 410 sprint car program in the track's history. The first and only Series visit to Kansas in 2021, the All Star event will award a $6,000 top prize.

- It's Dale Howard On The Final Lap At At Batesville Motor Speedway!
Bryan Hulbert - BATESVILLE, Ark. (July 23, 2021) With a stunning last-lap pass for the win at Batesville Motor Speedway, Mississippi's Dale Howard raced around Ryan Timms for his second career SawBlade.com A-Feature triumph with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network to kick off the 2021 Lucas Oil ASCS Sprint Week presented by Smiley's Racing Products. Last winning in National Tour competition on June 3, 2000, at Houston Raceway Park, Howard's return to Victory lane took 21 years, one Month, and 20 days. That comes out to 791 National Tour events between wins. Asked about the approach to the pass, Howard said, "I just rolled my wing to the trunk, made a run to the middle, and it stuck. Early when we were in lapped traffic, I moved up high and I felt the car hook up and I felt like if I got a chance to just roll the wing back and hit it hard up there, I'd maybe make it work. and it did, and there wasn't any rubber, it just stuck." Taking the lead on Lap 2 from Timms, the Mach1 Chassis No. 47 wasn't able to keep the No. 5t at bay. Working into traffic with a comfortable lead, Timms would start to feel pressure before caution lights came on Lap 14 for J.J. Hickle, who had a flat left front tire while battling for third. Able to make it out of the work area, Hickle ended up 17th. Red on the restart for Colton Hardy in the first turn, the field returned to green with Timms taking advantage of the clean air. Stalking traffic in the final three laps, that opened the door for Howard. Adjusting to the middle groove of the slick three-eighths-mile oval, Dale kept his momentum as Timms continued to work the bottom. Moving in on the back of the field as the pair raced to the white flag, a brief misstep on the slower car was all it took as Howard shot in to lead off the second turn. Keeping Ryan at bay off the final turn, Howard made it to the checkered flag 0.389-seconds ahead of the DriveWFX.com No. 5t. Making up several spots in the closing laps, Dylan Westbrook went from 11th to third over the 25-lap affair. Colby Thornhill captured his first career top five run with a fourth-place finish. Matt Covington moved up five spots to finish fifth. Ryan Bickett was sixth with Jordan Mallett rolling from 16th to seventh in his first start of the season. Slipping back in the closing laps, Blake Hahn ended up eighth with Howard Moore ninth. The night's Hard Charger from 21st, Tim Crawley completed the top ten. The 2021 Lucas Oil ASCS Sprint Week presented by Smiley's Racing Products continues on Saturday, July 24 at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark. Gates open at 5:00 P.M. with racing at 7:30 P.M. (CDT).

- SCELZI RACKS UP MORE VICTORIES AT TULARE!
(7/23/2021 - Alex Nieten) Tulare, CA... Dominic Scelzi continued his 2021 domination of Tulare Friday night at the Chris and Brian Faria Memorial with his second consecutive NARC-King of the West Fujitsu Sprint Car victory at the Thunderbowl, and he capped it off with a Kings of Thunder 360 win, making it six straight Tulare triumphs overall. The win didn't come easy, though. Scelzi lined up sixth on the grid for the start of the 30-lap Fujitsu Feature. Prior to tonight, the farthest back a driver had come to win in 2021 was fifth. The pilot of the Scelzi Enterprises/Red Rose Transportation 41 also had to endure a race-long battle with a pair of the west coast's best, DJ Netto and Shane Golobic. "I'm beat," an exhausted Scelzi said. "I ran thirty laps as hard as I possibly could. The way the cushion was I was really hustling my butt off. I haven't fallen out of the seat in a long time, but I did tonight. DJ is so good around this place. Shane's won just about everything there is to win here." The win also held some extra significance for not just Scelzi, but the Scelzi family that recently grew by one. "This is so cool," Scelzi said. "My baby girl was born last Friday, and this is the first win being a dad, so I'm just kind of soaking it all in." The field took the green with DJ Netto and Shane Golobic leading the way. Golobic got the jump in his NOS Energy Drink/Elk Grove Ford 17W from the inside and stretched the early lead while Scelzi worked his way by a few cars early on to jump from sixth to third. A caution with six laps complete bunched the field back up. Netto returned Golobic's lap one favor by snagging the top spot in his Netto Ag/Penny Newman Grain 88N from the inside lane on the ensuing restart. Another yellow on lap nine and a red flag for Sean Watts on lap twelve brought the leaders back together, but the top three remained the same until the closing laps brought excitement. As the lead trio navigated traffic with less than ten to go, Scelzi first picked off Golobic by rolling the bottom, and then snuck into the lead with a similar maneuver the next lap when Netto got trapped behind a slower car running the top. "Sometimes its better to be second or actually third in that position," Scelzi explained. "I don't feel like I was better than either of these guys. That's the cool thing about racing here, when it does get to the fence like that the top usually is the fastest place around here. When Shane got to him and they started racing, I was like 'man I ran the bottom earlier in the night, and I felt really good, but nobody around me had done that. I knew I needed to stick the bottom because you only get one chance with these guys." A late red came out with six to go for Corey Day, but once racing resumed Scelzi went unchallenged the final few laps to claim his third Fujitsu Feature of 2021 and the twelfth of his career, but not without the notoriously tough Thunderbowl taking a toll on him. Day was unhurt in the accident. "I'm gassed," Scelzi said. "I'm going to have to get back to the gym on Monday." The balance of the top-10 was Netto, Golobic, Mitchel Moles, Sean Becker, Bud Kaeding, Willie Croft, Tim Kaeding, Faccinto and Geoffrey Strole. FUJITSU FEATURE (30 laps) 1. Dominic Scelzi 41 2.

The second heat of round one went to Chris Simpson as the Iowa driver scored the victory over sixth place starting Jimmy Owens, Josh Richards, and eighth starter Jonathan Davenport, completed the top four. Heat number three of round one went to Nebraska native Tad Pospisil who took the win after race leader Ricky Thornton, Jr. suffered engines woes heading to the checkered flag. Chase Junghans, who was one of the big movers of the night in his heat race came from ninth to finish in second. Frank Heckenast, Jr. was third with Matt Cosner crossing the line in fourth. The fourth heat of round number one was taken by outside front row starter Kyle Bronson. Trailing Bronson across the finish line was seventh starting Stormy Scott, Chad Simpson, and Tyler Bruening.

Ryan Gustin was third with Tyler Bruening placing fourth. The second heat of round two saw Hall-of-Fame driver Scott Bloomquist take an impressive win after passing Chase Junghans for the lead. Bloomquist pulled away to take the victory over Junghans, Brian Shirley, and Jake Timm. The third heat of round two saw Stormy Scott work his way from third to the lead, to go on to win giving him enough points for the pole starting position for Saturday Night. Tyler Erb charged from fifth to second with Brandon Sheppard and Kyle Bronson rounding out the top four finishers. The fourth heat of round two would have former Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Champion, Jonathan Davenport, score the win ahead of current Series Championship Point leader Tim McCreadie.

- KNIGHTS OF THUNDER 360 SPRINT CARS HEAD BACK TO BRIGHTON
Teams and fans ready for first Sprint Car action at Brighton since 2019 By Tommy Goudge (July 23, 2021) - The Pinty's Knights of Thunder 360 Sprint Car series season is set to continue this Saturday, July 24 at Brighton Speedway! Plenty of action is expected at the racy one-third mile track as drivers are ready to kick off a busy stretch of the schedule which will see them competing in five events in the next three weeks. The track is located on the north shore of Lake Ontario, approximately 90 minutes east of Toronto and 30 minutes west of Belleville. Anticipation is high among teams and fans alike; Brighton hasn't hosted a Sprint Car event in nearly two years, and fans were in the stands for the first time since 2019 when rain arrived and washed out the July 3 KoT event. Jordan Poirier enters the weekend as the championship points leader, while Jim Huppunen, Mack DeMan, Josh Hansen, and Cory Turner are in the top five thanks to strong starts to their seasons two weeks ago. Three drivers have Brighton wins on their resumes; local favourite Chris Jones has six wins at Brighton, while Cory Turner has four, and Ryan Turner has one. THEY SAID IT Jordan Poirier will be racing at Brighton for the first time on Saturday. The driver from Saint-Mathieu-de-Beloeil, Quebec won the opening round of the Knights of Thunder season on July 10 at Merrittville Speedway. Meanwhile, Chris Jones will make a much shorter trip to Brighton from Picton, Ontario and has many races under his belt at the Northumberland County oval, including six wins. Here are their thoughts heading into Saturday's race: Poirier - "When we got rained out last time it was the first time I was seeing the track at all. I'm excited and anxious at the same time. We put the bar high last week, and we want to do good again Saturday." Jones - "Brighton is a fun little place. It's really nice to race at a place that's only 35 minutes from home rather than three to four hours, and it's always nice to recognize most of the faces in the crowd and to have plenty of them cheering me on." TICKETS 75% spectator capacity is permitted at this event under Step Three of Ontario's Roadmap to Reopen. Visit www.brightonspeedway.ca for more information. LIVE BROADCAST GForceTV will have a free live broadcast from Brighton if you can't make it to the track. Eight cameras will be in place to make sure that the broadcast is the next-best thing to being there! Visit www.gforcetv.net to catch all the action. Make sure to visit the official website and social media pages of the Pinty's Knights of Thunder for news and updates on Eastern Canada's newest racing series.

- Red Cedar Speedway Dunn County Fair Night One
Menomonie, Wisconsin, on Thursday, July 22, 2021, the Red Cedar Speedway Dunn County Fair Night One races were held Presented by Midwest Food and Tobacco along with GRP Motorsports. The WISSOTA Late Models were joined by the RCS Hornets, Limited Late Models, and a "run what you brung" Street Drags event for the fans. Winners on the evening included AJ Diemel, Joe Provinzino, and Jeremey Johnson. The WISSOTA Late Models saw John Kaanta and AJ Diemel win their respective heats. They were brought to green in the feature Sam Mars and Mark Hessler. The first attempt to start the race was aborted by a spin but the second try saw Mars shoot out to an advantage quickly. Hessler settled into second as Mike Prochnow ran third. John Kaanta overtook Prochnow on lap three, but it was apparent that AJ Diemel was the class of the field. After starting eighth on the grid, he took third from Kaanta on lap four and two laps later, overtook Hessler for the runner up position. Although Mars had built a solid cushion in the lead, it didn't take a stopwatch to realize Diemel was reeling him in. He cut into Mars lead rapidly as he blasted the high side of the raceway. The young Mars was very good in traffic however, and although Diemel had caught him, getting past him was going to be another chore. The veteran Diemel was able to use a lapped car as a pick and he overtook Mars for the lead. Diemel continued his onslaught on the speedway and developed a small advantage over Mars. Mars hung tough but couldn't match Diemel's speed and settled for a runner up position at the checkered flag. Kaanta drove into third past Hessler coming to the white flag, but Hessler was able to regain the position on the final circuit. Prochnow rounded out the top five as Jake Miller, Don Shaw, Jake Redetzke, Greg Nippoldt, and Michael Keller drove to top ten finishes. The Limited Late Models had one heat with Ashley Wahlstrom dominating it from the outside of row one. At feature time, it was Brett Shafer leading early as Jordan Langer chased him in second. Several laps into the event, Langer pushed up in a turn and Joe Provinzino took advantage and overtook the runner up position. Shafer still looked good out front, but Provinzino was on the prowl. Provinzino caught the leader, but Shafer was good coming off the corners. Provinzino continued to look under the leader in every turn lap after lap, but Shafer would regain an advantage down the straightaways. After several circuits of very tight and clean racing, Provinzino was able to get inside of the leader in turns three and four and got a good run down the front stretch to take the lead. Once out front, he checked out on the field and drove to the victory. Shafer drove home in second and Lucas Peterson was able to make a move past Langer with three to go to earn a podium finish. Langer was a close fourth as Patrick Kelly rounded out the top five. In preparation of a $1000 to win feature the following evening, Jeremy Johnson, Armond Love, and Sean Svee put on a show in the RCS Hornets. Love won the heat and took the early feature lead from the outside of the first row. Johnson moved to second and was able to move side by side for the lead. The two raced door to door for two laps with Love being scored the leader with the slightest advantage each time. Love was able to break free from the pair and drove back out front alone with Johnson glued to his tail. In a rare feat in the Hornet division, Johnson dove hard into turn three and pulled a classic slider for the pass into the lead. He was able to move out to a car length advantage, but Love wasn't done. A few laps later, Love was able to work his nose under Johnson in turn two and as they raced down the backstretch, Johnson tried to move down the racetrack to set himself up for turn three and the two made contact. Johnson was sent on a long sliding spin and the yellow flag flew over the raceway. Love was relegated to the back of the pack as the old adage says, "It's the leader's line." On the restart, Johnson led Svee, who had been racing in the shadows of the top two and making his presence known throughout the event. It was Love though who was not done and on the first lap of the lap ten restart, he overtook six positions and found himself chasing down Svee. Meanwhile, Johnson held a two-car length advantage in the lead. A spinner in turn three reset the field and before they could get solidly back under green, Danny Halterman was spun on the front stretch and made hard head on contact with the wall. The restart saw Love overtake the second position and drive hard to challenge for the win. On the final circuit of the event, he was able to get his nose under Johnson coming off the last turn, but Johnson held strong for the victory. Love finished an impressive second over Svee in third. Roy Cooper and Brandon Gleiter filled out the top five finishers. The Street Drags included ten fans who competed in two lap elimination style racing with their own street vehicles and provided excitement, cheers, and a few laughs. The Red Cedar Speedway returns for Dunn County Fair Night Two on Friday, June 24, 2021. It will be presented by Markquart Menomonie and Dick's RV. The WISSOTA Modifieds, Super Stocks, Midwest Modifieds, Street Stocks, RCS Hornets, Northern Vintage Stock Cars, and a "Powder Puff" race are all on the card.

- HORTON DUSTS SUPER LATE MODEL FIELD AT WEST GEORGIA SPEEDWAY
(Whitesburg, GA - July 23, 2021) In the first-ever sanctioned Super Late Model event in the history of West Georgia Speedway, it was nearby racer Austin Horton, of Newnan, that stole the show and etched his name into the record books for winning on Thursday night, July 22. Austin earned Fast Time honors overall during the Schaeffer's Oil Southern Nationals Series qualifying session and later rolled off from the pole position in the 40-lap headliner. With a large crowd on hand at the Whitesburg, Georgia facility, Austin controlled the field from green to checkers and survived a restart with only three circuits remaining to lay claim to the $4,053 winner's check. Outside polesitter Brent Dixon, who paced Group B during time trials, chased Horton throughout the contest, but never managed a serious bid for the top spot. The Elberton, Georgia ace finished 1.775 seconds behind in the runner-up position. Pearson Lee Williams improved one spot during the course of the race to grab the final position on the podium in third. Dirt Draft Rookie of the Year contender Garrett Smith brought his #10 machine home in fourth while Kenny Collins moved up to fifth to complete an all-Georgia top five. "It feels great to win here at West Georgia," exclaimed Horton in Schaeffer's Oil victory lane. "I made my first laps here. I cut my teeth here in a street stock. We've came a long way in a short time. Man, I don't even know what to say ... just glad to do it at the hometown track and get us another win. After a rough hot laps, it couldn't have went any better after that!" Austin's third career Schaeffer's Oil Southern Nationals Series victory moved him into a tie for eleventh all-time on the miniseries win list with Mike Marlar and Clint Smith. His triumph came aboard a #16 XR1 Rocket Chassis by Clint Smith Racing with sponsorship from Super K Express, Orr's Towing, GW Performance, Franklin Enterprises, Top Notch Graphics, and Horton's Inc. Round five of the Schaeffer's Oil Southern Nationals Series drew a 27 car field for the first-ever visit to West Georgia Speedway. Eventual winner Austin Horton stopped the clock quickest in FK Rod Ends qualifying with his fast time of 14.090 seconds. Michael Page secured the win in GoSunoco Racing B-Main #1, while Jordy Nipper was victorious in American Racer South B-Main #2. Ahnna Parkhurst and Jeff Neubert utilized series provisionals to gain access into the A-Main, while Benjamin Cranford and Chuck Southard both took use of their emergency provisional. Other action on Thursday night included a victory for Alabama's Richie Stephens in the Summit Racing Equipment Late Model Sportsman. Stephens paced the field winning ahead of Columbus drivers Bubba Gorman and Tim Lenz. Current track points leader, Shane Payton of Newnan, came home fourth with Florida's Noah Cornman completing the first five. Villa Rica's Cole Barrett became the first repeat winner in the Gerber Collision & Glass Chargers division this season. Barrett bested his friendly track rival Landon Frix of Newnan for the victory. It was the first time in eight races that a driver was able to win their second race. Derick Matthews of Whitesburg outdueled Senoia's Dustin 'Dune Buggy' Smith for the laurels in the West Georgia Tire Bomber division. Each driver has championships at their home track, Matthews at West Georgia Speedway and Smith at Senoia Raceway. This was the first time the champions squared off against each other this year. Alabama's Jordan Wallace came home third. Temple's David Brackett and Kennesaw's Doug McClain claimed checkers in the four cylinder competition with Brackett winning the Massey Towing Mini Stock and McClain winning the Hot Shot main event after Rick Ricks was disqualified in post race tech for a locked differential.

- Overton Over O'Neal in I-80 Opener Tuesday Night
Greenwood, NE (July 22, 2021) - Tyler Erb remains red-hot as the 24-year-old Texas native scored the biggest win of his racing career on Thursday Night at I-80 Speedway. Leading all 53 laps, Erb picked up $30,000 in the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series sanctioned event. Erb's had a dominating performance in the caution-free race with a margin of victory of 5.5 seconds over Hudson O'Neal. Brandon Overton came home in third with Spencer Hughes and Ricky Thornton Jr. rounding out the top five drivers. In Lucas Oil Victory Lane for the fourth time in 2021, Erb was congratulated by his crew chief Randall Edwards and his race team. "Going caution-free helps. Once you get in the rhythm there, you just try to keep going the same speed you are going, and you can tell when you mess up. I got to racing with lapped cars and I think my lead closed a little bit. This is awesome, this is the biggest win of my career, so I am pumped." O'Neal, who ran second to Overton on Tuesday Night came home in second. "I didn't know how close I could get to him [Erb] as far out he was. I knew traffic was going to play a big deal. Whenever I got by Spencer [Hughes] for second I started to get a little closer and then I caught lapped traffic just like he was in. We had a great night and it's been a great week so far; I am happy to get a couple of more nights to run for some great money." Tuesday Night's winner, Overton, earned a podium finish with his third place showing. "We are all on the same tires here. So, we have no excuses there. We just got better and better as the race went on. With this crowd it's a good night for us. We still have two more days left so we are just going to keep on working on it and we'll get them." The winner's Eric and Kelly Brock Best Performance Motorsports Rocket Chassis is powered by a Clements Racing Engine and sponsored by M&W Transport, Roberts Bee Company, First Class Septic, Posi Flow, Midwest Sheet Metal, Bazell Race Fuels, Go Lithium, Keyser Manufacturing, and KBC Graphics. Completing the top ten were Ricky Weiss, Stormy Scott, Jimmy Owens, Jonathan Davenport, and Shane Clanton.

- NLRA Event Preview - Inaugural Howie Schill Memorial at River Cities
This Friday night, July the 23rd, the NLRA returns to action at the River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks to honor one of its own. The series will take to the track in honor of longtime series regular Howie Schill who passed away last December. Howie was the series first ever feature winner at the Victory Lane Speedway in Winnipeg in 1998, and won the first River Cities points title the following year in 1999. Howie won three times with the series, and went on to race with and coach his son Cole through last September, when Cole became a back-to-back Stock Car Stampede Late Model champion at the Jamestown Speedway. The event on Friday night will pay $1,404-to-win, and $404 to start in honor of Howie. This will be the first of two Howie memorials, as the NLRA show at the Red River Valley Speedway in August will also honor him. Only one of three scheduled NLRA shows at the high-banked quarter-mile Bullring on the Greater Grand Forks Fairgrounds have been run this year due to mother nature. NLRA point leader Mike Greseth parked the No. 17 Quality Engines Rocket XR1 in victory lane on July 8th. The win was Greseth's second at the track this season, and fourth in NLRA competition in his rookie season. Lance Schill won the opener on May 7th in the No. 17 Schill Construction MB Custom, while Dustin Strand won on May 14th in the No. 71 Q&Z Plumbing & Heating Millenium. Brody Troftgruben won his first feature at the track on June 11th, and Joey Pederson picked up a win on June 18th in the Dahlstrom Motors No. 7P. Picture Howie Schill in 1998, the year he won the first NLRA Feature.
