- SCORE ONE FOR WASHINGTON: STARKS OUTDUELS SCELZI TO CLAIM NARC DIRT CUP NIGHT TWO
(6/24/2022 - Alex Nieten) Burlington, WA... California might've claimed round one of the 50th Annual Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup, but Washington would not be denied as the bell rang for round two. Fireworks boomed above the backstretch, and the Northwest crowd roared as Puyallup, Washington's Trey Starks climbed atop his car in Skagit Speedway victory lane having emerged as Friday's winner of the second and final Dirt Cup preliminary with the NARC Fujitsu General Sprint Cars. It was a special night for the 26-year-old. While he's won dozens of races in his home region, Starks had never taken a Dirt Cup checkered flag in the finale or a prelim. It also marked his seventh win in 10 total races in 2022 and his second in three races with NARC this year. As a bonus, Starks got to battle his good friend, Dominic Scelzi, for the victory. "It was a really good race," Starks said. "I'm so happy to be back up on stage in front of the hometown crowd." Starks began the race outside the front row with Garen Linder on the pole. Starks ripped the outside in his T&C Concepts No. 55 to lead the opening circuit as Scelzi quickly jumped from sixth to third in the opening laps. A red flag flew with 36 to go as Tanner Holmes made contact with another car out of turn four, sending Holmes on a wild flip, his second nasty crash in as many days. Holmes walked away under his own power. On the restart Scelzi wasted no time clearing Linder with a slider to move into the runner-up spot and setting his sights on Starks. As the lead duo began to work through traffic 10 laps in Scelzi closed in. Scelzi threw his first slider attempt at Starks but couldn't clear him. Then, Scelzi regrouped and sent another slide job, making the pass this time and leading lap 15. Starks, though, rallied and returned the favor with his own successful slider to take the lead back. Starks began to build a small advantage over Scelzi, but with 19 to go the red flag flew again as Zeb Wise got above the cushion in turn three and climbed the fence before getting upside down. Wise was okay. On the ensuing restart Scelzi slid Starks in turn three, but Starks again answered, perfectly rolling the bottom in turns one and two to edge ahead of Scelzi. "I saw Dominic more than a few times," Starks said of their battle. "And we were able to combat every one of his moves." Starks took off after snagging the lead back from Scelzi. He found himself in heavy traffic as the race dipped inside 10 laps to go. Scelzi took a peak to his inside on multiple occasions in traffic but couldn't quite challenge him. A couple of late yellows bunched things up, but Starks pulled away each time and ultimately held on to win by just under eight tenths of a second. With how his points situation had been at the time the Fujitsu Feature started, Starks knew he needed to win to stay alive in Dirt Cup standings head into Saturday's $50,000 to win finale.. "I knew starting on the front row we were basically going to have to win to put us in any decent position for points tomorrow," Starks expiated "It was a hard fought race." Scelzi held on for second in his Red Rose Transportation/Whipple Superchargers No. 41, his 10th NARC podium of the year. Scelzi thought a longer green flag run might've allowed him a chance at the lead. "I would've liked to have seen traffic stay," Scelzi said. "I think in open air he (Starks) was probably better for the first four or five laps, and then I seemed to start coming back to him. The car was perfect tonight." Completing the podium was Shane Golobic in his NOS Energy Drink/Elk Grove Ford No. 17W. While he would've liked to win, Golobic stayed focused on the big picture. "Third is not exactly what we came for," Golobic said. "But in this format points are everything and we had a decent points night, going seventh to third. We'll take it." The remainder of the top-10 included Corey Day, Tyler Courtney (from 20th), Tim Kaeding, Jason Solwold (from 17th), Justin Sanders (from 16th), Greg Hamilton, and Jesse Schlotfeldt. Tyler Courtney is the high point man heading into Saturday's finale and will be guaranteed a front row starting spot in the 50-lap main event. *The Feature was shortened by three laps due to tire wear concerns.

- Marlar Goes Back-to-Back at Lernerville
Sarver, PA (June 24, 2022) - For the second night in a row Mike Marlar won a preliminary feature at Lernerville Speedway. Marlar took the lead from Ricky Thornton Jr. on lap 14 to score the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win on Friday night; setting himself up for a good starting spot in one of the six heat races to be contested Saturday night for the 16th Annual Firecracker 100 Presented by Big River Steel paying $50,000-to-win. Marlar fought off Tim McCreadie, who had raced from the ninth starting spot to challenge for the lead at the end but fell a few car lengths short at the checkers. Thornton, who led the first 13 laps from the pole finished in third. Mark Whitener, who had an impressive run in his heat race climbing from seventh for the win came home fourth in the feature just ahead of fifth place Hudson O'Neal. Thornton and O'Neal started on the front row and paced the field for the first four laps until Marlar took over second from O'Neal on the fifth circuit. The race went the first 12 laps caution free just as Thornton was about to pick up the tail end of the field. On the restart it took Marlar just two laps around the legendary racetrack to get the lead, which he held until the end to keep him a perfect two-for-two on the weekend so far. In Lucas Oil Victory Lane for the 18th time in his career Marlar has his sights set on his third career $50,000 payday on Saturday night. "It was just so slick I was just kind of driving different most laps actually and I probably changed up what I was doing six or seven times in 30 laps. I saw him (McCreadie) flash under me in one and two, after about four or five laps my tires would get a little hotter and they'd give up some grip, so I think he preserved his tires a little better." Marlar started third in the race and tracked down Thornton, overhauling for the lead one lap shy of the halfway mark. "He had the bottom and he wasn't going to move; I was just waiting on that brown ring on the bottom to wear out. It was getting thinner and thinner so then on that one restart I found some crumbs out here kind of in the middle leaving four, so I got on the outside and it worked for me, I barely got by him. It's definitely been a good weekend so far. The trip is paid for and tomorrow will be the cherry on top. It will be tough. You know we have a good 30-40 lap car; it slides around on me once the tires get warm. So tomorrow we will get a harder tire and see if that helps the situation too." McCreadie, the reigning Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series National Champion took the runner-up spot as the 2019 Firecracker 100 winner charged from the inside of the fifth row. "This will give us a better shot in the heats tomorrow night which is what you are working for. The track's been tough. It's been way different each night and it just shows this Mega Plumbing team is doing a good job in trying to adapt. To be able to run well both nights and be competitive, it's all you can ask for. I need some help over in one and two, I can't get where I want the car to be activated. To come home second to Mikey, he's really good. We need a little more we will just keep working hard it's all we can do." Thornton was denied his first series win of the year as he will try to score another crown jewel victory on Saturday night to go along with his Dirt Track World Championship win last October. "I didn't really know if I needed to move out or not. He (Marlar) was really good through the middle just like T-Mac was. I felt like we had a really good car. We'll take a third, it should set us up in good position for tomorrow's heat races." The winner's Ronnie Delk-owned Longhorn Chassis is powered by a Cornett Racing Engine and sponsored by Delk Equipment, Tri-Rivers Enterprises, Rockets Convenient Plus, Bilstein Shocks, Mesilla Valley Transportation, Can-Am Salvage, and Capital CapSigns.com. Completing the top ten were Garrett Alberson, Jonathan Davenport, Earl Pearson Jr., Michael Norris, and Brandon Sheppard.

- THE SEXTON GATLIN TRAIN IS HEADED TO BARONA ON SATURDAY
(Lakeside, CA, June 23, 2022) Much to the chagrin of the competition, the Sexton Gatlin Racing train, which is comprised of Brent Sexton and his teenage sons Dalton and Grant, will be rolling into the Barona Speedway for Saturday's Lucas Oil POWRi Southwest Lightning Sprint Car Series race. Thus far, SGR drivers have steamrolled the competition and won six of the seven lightning sprint races they have entered. Heading into this week's race, Brent is the new point leader in the SWLS. The veteran finished second at the last series race that was also at Barona on June 11th. The family patriarch's strong run, combined with Dalton dropping out of the main early in the race, sees him carry a 20-point lead into Saturday's event. The elder Sexton is no stranger to leading points and winning championships as he has two California Lightning Sprint Car Series Championship trophies resting on his mantelpiece. His first title came while the Clinton administration was in the White House in 1999, and the second came just before Barack Obama took up residence at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. While Brent finished second in the main event two weeks ago, he was no match for Grant who made it look easy at the front of the pack. The teen was virtually unchallenged except for a lapped car who decided to race him near the midway point of the race. Once he broke free of the lapper, he proceeded to run away from the pack and win by a full straightaway. It was his fourth win of the 2022 season and those victories have been spread between three different sanctions. The SWLS, California Lightning Sprint Cars, and the VRA Sprint Cars. In taking the point lead, Brent became only the second driver to sit on top of the heap in 2022. Dalton won the opening main at El Centro on March 5th along with another race at Barona on May 14th. Until the broken heim knocked him out of the last race, he had led the points for over three months. The good news is that he is only 20-points out of first coming into Saturday's race at the track that is closest to SGR headquarters. Spectator gates at Barona will open at 3:00 p.m. and the first green flag will start the action at 6:00. Adult tickets are $25.00. Kids 7-17 are $10.00 and children 6 and under are free. Family packs of two adults and two kids are available for $50.00. Seniors, military, and EMTs get in for $10.00. The track is located at 1754 Wildcat Road in Lakeside (92040). The track website is https://baronaspeedway.com/ and the office phone number is (619) 994-6560. Sexton/Gatlin Racing would like to thank the following companies for making the 2022 season possible. Sexton Fire Protection, BK Wings, Johnny Motorhead, Troy Dirt, Victory Graphix, Swift Powdercoat, Maxima Oil, and an extra special thanks to Scotty and Jimmy Keys.

- FLOWDYNAMICS McCARTHY & WILLIAMS TO RACE IN JONES/SCHEETZ MEMORIAL
(Ontario, CA, June 24, 2022) Flowdynamics Sprint car drivers Logan Williams and Matt McCarthy will both be back in action this Saturday night in the USAC/CRA Bubby Jones/Ray Scheetz Memorial at Perris Auto Speedway. It will be the fourth appearance for each at their local track in 2022. The team comes into Saturday's race with Williams fifth in the standings, only 21-points out of fourth. McCarthy enters the night not far behind his teammate in ninth. Through the first three races at the Riverside County half-mile clay oval in 2022, McCarthy has a seventh and a 15th place finish. He did not start the April 30th main event due to an annoying fuel line problem. In his three appearances at The PAS this year, Williams best finish has been a sixth. In his other two outings, he has finished 11th. PAS 5-28-22=28m=3956-3.jpg Matt McCarthy at Perris Auto Speedway on May 28th. Doug Allen photo. After Saturday's race, Williams, who calls Yorba Linda, California home, and Riverside, California's McCarthy, get next week's holiday weekend off. They will return to action on July 8th and 9th when they journey to Central California to race at Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford on Friday and Stone Chevrolet, Buick, GMC Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare on Saturday. PAS 4-30-22=5w=2344-3.jpg Logan Williams qualifying at The PAS on May 28. Doug Allen photo. The USAC/CRA schedule initially had a six-week break between the two July races in the Central Valley and the August 20th date at Perris. That break has been shortened to four weeks with the announcement that the Santa Maria Raceway was going to reopen with a USAC/CRA show on August 6th. The track, which has hosted regular visits from the series since its inception in 2004, has been shuttered since last July. When the team last appeared at Santa Maria on July 3rd, 2021, Williams finished eighth in the main event with McCarthy right behind him in ninth. Saturday's race at Perris salutes National Sprint Car Hall of Famer Bubby Jones and his long-time crew chief, Ray Scheetz. Jones's son Tony, a past USAC/CRA champion and now the series race director, has a tie to the Flowdynamics operation. When McCarthy was a rookie, Jones served as a driver coach and team advisor. Spectator gates for the Bubby Jones/Ray Scheetz Memorial will open at 5:00 p.m. with racing at 7:00. Adult tickets are $30.00. For seniors 65 and over it is $25.00.

- HE'S BACK: KAEDING WINS THRILLING NARC DIRT CUP OPENER
(6/23/2022 - Alex Nieten) Burlington, WA... Just one month ago, Tim Kaeding wasn't sure he'd ever climb back in a sprint car. Three straight incidents in a week span left him bruised and battered, but not broken. Kaeding took a month off to heal up, contemplating whether or not racing sprint cars, something he's spent the last 25 years doing, was something he'd be able to continue. Well, not only did he return, he came back in ideal fashion, leading flag to flag in Skagit Speedway's 50th Annual Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup 30-lap opener Thursday night and holding off D.J. Netto to win in thrilling fashion. Emotions flowed after the checkered flew. TK gave the fans a show with some donuts on both ends of the track, car owner Josh Bates shook with excitement, and the rest of the Bates-Hamilton crew celebrated with shouts and hugs. The victory marked Kaeding's 72nd NARC Fujitsu General Sprint Car victory and his first prelim win at Dirt Cup since 1999. "To win, knowing a month ago I possibly wasn't ever going to get back in a race car, means so much," a choked up Kaeding said in victory lane.. The field was led to green by pole sitter Joel Myers Jr. with Kaeding to his outside. Kaeding rocketed around Myers Jr.'s to lead the opening lap. The San Jose native wasted no time in building a wide advantage, stretching his lead to nearly two seconds just a few laps in. Just as Kaeding was about to encounter traffic, the race's first caution flew on seven for Jonathan Allard slowing in turns one and two with front end issues. On the restart a quick red flag on the next lap brought things to a halt as Cory Eliason, Ryan Robinson, Jesse Schlotfeldt tangled in turn three. All drivers were okay, and the stoppage became an open red as teams refueled and made adjustments. Kaeding got a solid jump on the restart, jumping ahead as the race established a rhythm. After a couple of laps, Myers Jr. began to reel Kaeding as the race approached the halfway mark. With traffic looming and Myers Jr. on TK's tail, a battle for the lead seemed to be brewing. However, that potential duel was derailed when Myers Jr. got above the cushion in turn three on lap 14 and hit the wall, sending him flipping and ending his night. The incident gifted D.J. Netto the runner-up spot. When racing resumed the action was again quickly halted for a violent crash. Austen Wheatley made contact with Kerry Madsen on the backstretch, causing Wheatley to get upside down and leaving Tanner Holmes nowhere to go as Holmes came into turn three and slammed into Wheatley. Holmes was shaken but exited the car under his own power, and Wheatley was transported to a local hospital after complaint of back pain. One last caution for a spinning Willie Croft on lap 20 set up an 11 lap sprint to the finish. Kaeding initially jumped ahead to a comfortable advantage, gapping Netto by over a second as the race dipped inside 10 laps to to go. As the duo approached the tail of the field, Netto began to cut into the lead each lap, until finally pulling right on Kaeding's tail tank as the white flag flew. Netto dipped to Kaeding's inside in turn one, but Kaeding powered ahead down the backstretch. In turn three Netto threw one last haymaker, sticking the bottom perfectly and even inching ahead about midway through turns three and four. As the two exited turn four Netto drifted high, and Kaeding slipped through the narrow gap between Netto's machine and the wall to win by a mere nine one-hundredths of a second in the Teichert/Vinyltech No. 42X. "I knew D.J. was back there, I heard him coming," Kaeding said. "I've got to thank the entire Bates-Hamilton team, Brad, Roger and Lori Hamilton, and Josh Bates. These guys bust their butts." With a prelim victory under his belt, Kaeding now has the ultimate goal in the crosshairs. The two-time NARC champ is yet to win a Dirt Cup championship, but he has three runner-ups at the Northwest's premier event. He's tired of playing bridesmaid. "I can run second at this place better than anybody," Kaeding said. "This year I'm going to win this son of a b***h because I'm taking it back to California." Netto, making his Dirt Cup debut this week, brought his Netto Ag No. 88N home in the runner-up spot to kickoff the weekend strong. "We needed traffic to start moving around," Netto explained. "We got to it right there at the end, and I was like, 'well, I've got one shot at this' when I was coming to the white (flag). I was able to hit the bottom really good in (turns) one and two, which I was doing early in the race, so I knew the speed I could carry. And I thought I could get him cleared down there (turns three and four), but the top was still really fast." Completing the podium was Tarlton Motorsports pilot Mitchell Faccinto. The strong run was a much needed one as he ended a recent stretch of bad luck. "I was really happy with it," Faccinto said of his night. "It's miles ahead of where we've been the last couple weeks. We've just been struggling a little bit, but I felt really good all night." The balance of the top-10 included Justin Sanders, Corey Day (from 23rd), Tyler Courtney (from 16th), Tyler Thompson, Zeb Wise, Kerry Madsen, and Jason Solwold.

- Mike Marlar Takes First Career Lernerville Win Thursday Night
Sarver, PA (June 23, 2022) - Mike Marlar overtook race leader Ashton Winger on lap four and held off a furious late-race charge by Brandon Overton to win preliminary night number one of the 16th Annual Firecracker 100 Presented by Big River Steel. Marlar earned $6,000 for the 30-lap victory, his first this season with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series. Overton came home in second followed by four-time Series Champion Earl Pearson Jr., current series points leader Brandon Sheppard, and Tyler Erb, who rounded out the top five. Winger, currently the top driver in the O'Reilly Auto Parts Rookie-of-the-Year chase led the first three laps from his pole starting spot before yielded the point to Marlar, who had started alongside him. Marlar had Pearson and Overton breathing down his neck in the race for the lead. A red flag with eight laps in for Chub Frank, who rolled his car his turn two, halted the race. Frank emerged uninjured in the mishap. When the race went back green Marlar steadily pulled away from the battle for second between Pearson and Overton. Overton eventually cleared Pearson for second and set his sights on Marlar who was having to negotiate heavy traffic in the waning laps of the race. With a few laps to go there were no lapped cars between the top two drivers, but Marlar, who nearly slipped over the turn two embankment was able to regroup and get to the finish line winning by 1.063 seconds over the reigning Firecracker 100 winner. In Lucas Oil Victory Lane for the 17th time in his career, the only three-time Lucas Oil Knoxville Late Model Nationals winner was relieved to see the checkered flag as he nearly slipped off the turn two corner with just a few laps to go. "I kind of figured out what my car needed there and drove around a couple of issues I was having. With this tough of competition that is here you can't be messing around out there. The guys in front of me there at the end was messing with my air. I just about went out of there a couple of times. It was definitely an awesome race track we used every bit of it, on the bottom, the top, the middle, and everywhere. Lernerville always provides an awesome track." "You just use this night to build off of," said the 44-year-old Tennessee native in becoming the 13th different winner this year with the series. "We know we a had a car to win a 30-lapper right there, we've got to work on it a little better. It was pretty close out of the box tonight and it's always good to start that way instead of having to try and reel something back in during the night." Overton, who finished third behind Chris Madden and Jonathan Davenport in last week's $50,000 to win Mountain Moonshine Classic at Smoky Mountain Speedway charged from fifth to the runner-up spot on Thursday night at Lernerville. "We definitely put ourselves in a good position on the first night. The track was so good on the bottom, and you could sling the crumbs up the track. You could move around a little, the car felt really good in the middle of the track. We will continue to work on it and give it another shot tomorrow night." "It was a good points night for us, it will get us lined-up well for a heat race for Saturday if we have a good run tomorrow," said Pearson, who rounded out the podium in third. "For my guys they done an outstanding job. The track was pretty racy there. Overton seemed to be pretty good through the middle and Marlar was good around the top there and I just stayed around the bottom. We will work on it tomorrow and see if we get a few more spots tomorrow night."

- ROA HOPES TO GO ONE SPOT BETTER AT PERRIS - NEW SHIRTS ARE IN
(Cypress, CA, June 23, 2022) Fresh off a second-place finish two weeks ago at the Ventura Raceway, veteran sprint car driver Brody Roa hopes to take one step higher on the podium when the USAC/CRA Sprint car series returns to Perris Auto Speedway Saturday night for the inaugural Bubby Jones/Ray Scheetz Memorial. It will be Roa's last scheduled Southern California appearance before heading to the Midwest for Indiana Sprint week in late July. PAS 4-30-22=91r=2289-3.jpg Brody Roa at Perris Auto Speedway on April 28th. Photo courtesy of Doug Allen. As well as racing, Roa will be debuting his new shirts on Saturday as seen in the photos below. He will have them for sale in the pits after the final race. For those who cannot make it, you can order shirts and a host of other Brody Roa items online at the following link https://www.brodyroa.com/shop/. 284547483_4932496253470857_4133713825537182415_n.jpg284612631_4932496186804197_4985662261410284674_n.jpg Roa has been at his strongest point of the season over the last two races. On May 28th at Perris, he was the third-fastest qualifier, won his third USAC/CRA heat race of the year, and got his first series podium finish when he placed third. Two weeks later in Ventura, he was the eighth-fastest qualifier, came home second in his heat, and then finished second in the 30-lap main event. After the main event at Ventura, Roa was lauded by many for how he conducted himself during the main event. Despite having what appeared to be the better car, he ran in second the entire distance. Early on he made a couple of tries on the outside, but there was nothing there. The track was a single lane on the bottom. Roa bided his time and patiently waited for the leader to slip up and slide off the pole. That never happened. Instead of driving thru the leader and risking wrecking the leader's car and his own, Roa played it safe, came home in second, and praised the winner for the fine job he did. Likewise, the winner praised Roa for his clean driving. Roa has competed in six of the first 11 USAC/CRA races in 2022. He has a series-best main event finishing average of 4.33. That is nearly ¾ of a position better than the driver with the second-best average. Great news for Roa, the other series drivers, and fans is the announcement that the Santa Maria Raceway is set to reopen on August 6th. The track that closed nearly a year ago, has seen Roa do his best work in recent seasons. Dating back to July 1st, 2017, the Garden Grove, California driver has raced 410 sprint cars seven times on the banked, 1/3 mile Santa Barbara County clay oval. He won three of those seven races, placed second two times, and was fourth once. The only time he finished out of the top four was when he placed ninth on October 5th, 2019. His finishing average in those seven races is a phenomenal 2.85. In 2022, Roa will race USAC/CRA, USAC National, and other select events, in his #91R BR Performance/HD Industries Eagle. He will also drive the #8M for May Motorsports in select USAC West Coast events. The 2019 USAC Southwest and 2017 USAC West Coast champion is always open to discussing other driving opportunities. Roa and the team want to thank the following sponsors for making the 2022 season possible. HD Industries, Burris Racing, Sander Engineering, Inland Rigging, Caltrol, "Biker" Bruce Fischer, Competition Suspension, ALR Virtual Services, K-1 Race Gear, Molecule, Rod End Supply, Driven Racing Oil, Baldwin Filters, and NGK Spark Plugs. In addition, the veteran driver offers thanks to RDM Mechanics, Fastenal, Coopers Propane, Ten West Towing, Ten West Environmental, TJM Distribution, and Westco International for sponsoring the #8M he will pilot for Jayson May on 10 occasions in 2022. If you or your company would like to jump on board and receive recognition as a team partner throughout the 2022 racing season, please give the two-time USAC champion racer a phone call or drop him a note at the contact information on the top of this release.

- GALE'S CASH BLAST 50 HEADLINES JUNE 24 OHSWEKEN EVENT
OHSWEKEN, Ont. (June 23, 2022) - The 25th season of Friday Night Excitement at Ohsweken Speedway continues this Friday, June 24 when Gale's Auto Aftermarket presents the Gale's Cash Blast 50 for the Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stock division, plus Friday Night Excitement with the Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars, Strickland's Crate Sprint Cars, and HRW Automotive Mini Stocks. Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks Dave Bailey leads the Thunder stock championship standings after three rounds, but just 26 points separate the top five heading into their first 50 lap event of the season; Ryan Beagle, Chris Hale, Trevor DeBoer, and Mike Klazinga are Bailey's closest competitors, while Kyle Wert scored his first career Thunder Stock win last Friday. Endurance and patience are the name of the game this week though as the Thunder Stock drivers will race more than twice their regular distance and contend with handicapping for the first time this season. Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak Sprint Cars Cory Turner took the win last Friday and assumed the championship points lead as a result. Turner and brother Ryan have asserted themselves as title contenders, but a host of competitors are ready to challenge them. A trio of Crate Sprint Car graduates - Josh Hansen, Aaron Turkey, and Liam Martin - are giving chase, while former track champs Glenn Styres and Jim Huppunen are lurking just outside the top five in the standings. Strickland's Crate Sprint Cars Darren Dryden has won both Crate Sprint Car events to start the season and leads the championship standings as a result. Eric Gledhill, Lucas Smith, Brett Stratford, and Jesse Costa have used consistency to occupy the remainder of the top five, and headline a large group of drivers who are capable of stopping Dryden's streak this week. HRW Automotive Mini Stocks Tyler Lafantaisie took his third consecutive Mini Stock win last Friday and leads the championship standings, but he and the other top contenders will now be confronted with handicapping starting this Friday. Nick Erskine is the only other Mini Stock driver with three top fives to start the season and sits second in the standings, followed by Jason Tolton, defending champ Dusty DeBoer, and Tristan DaSilva New Electronic Pit Waiver Please click this link to sign the Annual Pit Waiver if you plan on attending in the Pit Area in 2022: https://ohsspeed.speedwaiver.com/kinxf Ohsweken Speedway on GForceTV Can't make it to the track or don't live within driving distance?
