- PORT ROYAL'S PENULTIMATE EASTERN STORM ROUND ROLLS IN SATURDAY
Port Royal, Pennsylvania (June 17, 2021)………Big track, big speed and big thrills. That's what the half-mile of Pennsylvania's Port Royal Speedway routinely presents when the USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship pays a visit to the scenic dirt oval for the penultimate race of Eastern Storm on Saturday night, June 19. Three past Port Royal Eastern Storm feature winners are in Saturday night's field, and all are Eastern Storm champions themselves: Chris Windom, Brady Bacon and Robert Ballou. In fact, all three won at Port Royal, captured the Eastern Storm title and the USAC National Sprint Car title in the same season at one point in their career. Windom (Canton, Ill.) won at Port Royal in both 2017 and 2018, both years in which he captured the Eastern Storm title. The 2017 USAC National Sprint Car champ hasn't finished outside the top-two in his last three Port Royal starts, adding a 2nd in 2019. Windom was also 10th in 2012. Bacon (Broken Arrow, Okla.) was victorious at Port Royal in 2014, winning the Eastern Storm crown that year before adding a first USAC National Sprint Car title as the cherry on top. The now three-time USAC National Sprint Car champion finished 2nd at Port Royal in 2016, 3rd in 2017, 4th in 2013 and 7th in both 2015 and 2019. His time of 2:32.57 set in 2019 is the 8-lap USAC National Sprint Car track record at Port Royal. Ballou (Rocklin, Calif.) had an Eastern Storm for the ages in 2015, sweeping the series, including the stop at Port Royal en route to a dominating Eastern Storm championship and was the king of the USAC National Sprint Cars at season's end. Ballou also took 4th place finishes at Port Royal in 2012, 2014 and 2018, as well as an 8th in 2016. C.J. Leary (Greenfield, Ind.) possesses the one-lap USAC National Sprint Car track record at Port Royal of 18.105, set during his Eastern Storm and USAC National Sprint Car championship season of 2019, a night in which he earned his best career finish at the track, a 3rd in the feature. Leary added a 5th in 2016 and a 10th in 2018. Justin Grant (Ione, Calif.) has twice been a fast qualifier in USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car competition at Port Royal in both 2014 and 2017. The reigning USAC Silver Crown champ finished a best of 2nd in 2017, and added a 5th in 2019, 7th in 2014, 7th in 2018 and 8th in 2015. Chase Stockon (Fort Branch, Ind.) was the fastest qualifier at Port Royal in 2016 and finished as the runner-up in the feature during 2015 Eastern Storm, adding that to his resume along with a 4th in 2019, 5th in 2013, 6th in 2014, 6th in 2018 and 7th in 2017. Kevin Thomas Jr. (Cullman, Ala.) has twice been a runner-up finisher at Port Royal with the USAC Sprints, earning 2nd place results in both 2014 and 2018 and was 8th in 2013 and 2017. KTJ also notched a top qualifying lap at Port Royal to set fast time in 2018. Shane Cottle (Kansas, Ill.) is in the midst of his first Eastern Storm tour since 2016. He's earned a pair of 10th place finishes at Port Royal with the USAC National Sprint Cars in both 2013 and 2015. Isaac Chapple (Willow Branch, Ind.) slotted in the 10th spot for his best Port Royal run in 2016. Matt Westfall was a best of 14th in 2018 at Port Royal. A number of USAC East Coast Sprint Cars' best have performed well at Port Royal. Alex Bright (Collegeville, Pa.) has won the last two USAC EC features in 2020 and in April of 2021. With the USAC National Sprint Cars, Bright finished 13th back in 2017. Three-time USAC East Coast Sprint Car champion Steven Drevicki (Reading, Pa.) finished 2nd behind Bright back in April's EC race. Drevicki was 20th in the 2019 USAC National Sprint Car race at Port Royal. Briggs Danner (Allentown, Pa.) garnered the 3rd spot with the East Coast series back in April of this year. Mark Bitner (Columbus, N.J.) was the first USAC East Coast Sprint Car winner at Port Royal during the 2018 season. He made the field for the first USAC National Sprint Car feature at Port Royal as well in 2012, finishing 14th. Carmen Perigo (Stoystown, Pa.) was 9th with the USAC National Sprint Cars at Port Royal in 2016 while Timmy Buckwalter (Douglassville, Pa.) recorded a 9th in 2018. Mark Smith (Sunbury, Pa.) was 11th in the first Eastern Storm visit to Port Royal in 2012. Chris Allen Jr. (Old Bridge, N.J.) finished 5th with the East Coast series in April. Among those making their first Port Royal Eastern Storm appearances are multi-time Pennsylvania USAC National Sprint Car winner in 2021, Tanner Thorson (Minden, Nev.). Thorson, the 2016 USAC National Midget champion, is currently the leading candidate for Rookie of the Year with the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Cars in 2021.

- INAUGURAL PINTY'S 100 FOR NASCAR PINTY'S SERIES POSTPONED TO 2022
(June 16, 2021) OHSWEKEN, ON - Ohsweken Speedway management, along with the NASCAR Pinty's Series, have announced the inaugural Pinty's 100 scheduled for the summer of 2021 will regrettably be postponed until 2022. Working closely with Six Nations health officials, track owner Glenn Styres says the responsible decision is to postpone the anticipated event to 2022. Ongoing restrictions at the Canada-US border have also made it challenging to book international stars to attend and compete in the blockbuster event. "We are committed to making the Pinty's 100 Ohsweken Speedway's biggest event in its 25 year history," said track manager Clinton Geoffrey. "Doing that requires star power from both sides of the border and a grandstand full of rabid fans. Because we can't confidently say we would have either of those things in 2021, we are forced to wait yet another year." Despite the postponement of the historic NASCAR event, renovations have continued at the 1/3 mile dirt track. "Fans will be blown away when they visit the Speedway next," said Geoffrey. "From new parking areas, new pavement in various locations around the facility, a new concrete wall around the racing surface, state-of-the-art connectivity, and a new VIP suite tower, the work just hasn't stopped." Ohsweken's regular Friday night schedule is also in a holding pattern as track management and local health officials responsibly and cautiously plan their own road map to reopening. "This extended off-season has been as frustrating for us as it is for our many teams and fans eager to get back on the track," said Geoffrey. "Make no mistake, we are as committed as ever to providing the biggest and best short track racing events in the country."

- Lucas Oil Speedway Spotlight: Domer relishes latest USRA Modified win as family affair
WHEATLAND, MO. (June 17, 2021) - You don't see many dirt-track racers celebrate victories with burnouts and smoky doughnuts. Count Chase Domer among those who does, especially on his way to victory lane at Lucas Oil Speedway. "I don't know, it just means a lot to me and I like putting on a little bit of a show for the fans," Domer said, reflecting upon his burnout on the backstretch last Saturday - as the fans cheered - following his Cedar Creek Beef Jerky USRA Modified feature victory. Domer said it was part his own excitement and part fan reaction he received - even weeks after his first Lucas Oil Speedway feature win and subsequent burnout last summer. "I did it the first time and had some people I didn't even know come up to me and tell me it was pretty cool," Domer said. "So I just tried to put on something fun on for the fans. Plus, it's a big deal to win at Wheatland. They don't come around very often. It makes it, when it does happen, a lot better. "I haven't quite mastered it yet," Domer added, with a laugh, on what makes a great burnout on dirt. "I killed (the motor) this time. But I have some ideas if I get another one that I might try." Domer's next opportunity arrives this Saturday night when the Cedar Creek Beef Jerky USRA Modifieds headline the Big Adventure RV Weekly Racing Series program Presented by iHeartMedia with a 25-lap, $1,000-to-win main event. The Missouri Metal Buildings ULMA Late Models, Ozark Golf Cars USRA B-Mods and O'Reilly Auto Parts USRA Stock Cars also will resume points chases as the second half of the season begins. In addition, Pure Stocks will be a special guest class for the second and final time in 2021. Domer, a 31-year-old from Nevada, led the final 19 of 20 laps to capture last Saturday's feature win. It was his fourth win overall in 2021, to go with three feature victories at Old 71 Speedway in Butler. In Lucas Oil Speedway points, he is 49 points behind midseason champ Dillon McCowan and in USRA Modified national points he was fifth in the most-recent standings. "The season's been going pretty good," Domer said. "We're having fun at Butler on Fridays, though they're struggling to get cars up there. At Wheatland, we've had some trouble qualifying, but I think we're getting closer with our qualifying efforts. It's so big over there. You need to start close to the front." Domer said his MB Customs chassis is getting dialed in better and better all the time, especially with the dryer, slicker track conditions that normally prevail during the summer months. While last year's win at Lucas Oil Speedway always will be special, because it was his first there, he said the latest might be even better for multiple reasons. "With the time span between the two, this one was almost better," Domer said. "When we won the last time, we were the last class to race and by the time we got through tech, there weren't many people left. This time, we were the first feature of the night. "This also was the first time I've ever won when my wife (Carly) and daughters (Aubree and Reese) were there. This one was important. The girls have always wanted to get up there and get their picture taken, so I finally got that done for them." Racing is all about family for Domer as his dad, Berry Domer, is a former dirt-track competitor and his grandpa, Kenny Rains, embraces the time-consuming chore of grooving tires. Father-in-law Kerry Schulze built and maintains the engine while also providing other mechanical assistance. "I'm pretty lucky," Domer said of the help he receives, noting that Berry Domer is key in providing insight from a driver's perspective even though he hasn't raced in two decades. "My dad, we go off just as much of what he sees the car doing as much as what I feel," Chase Domer said. "I'm pretty lucky to have a good coach, if you want to call him that. We work together a lot. He's just as responsible for the wins as anything I do. It's a team effort. "There's some driver techniques he's been on to me about. I've been playing with some of that stuff, too. It's paying off. Surprisingly, everyone says (racing) has come a long way, but we go back to his old-school stuff a lot of times and it seems to work." Domer said his goals for the remainder of the season are pretty simple. "I want to keep winning," he said. "The points are cool, but it's not what we shoot for. We're there to win and that's our main goal. We're kind of hoping, if we can keep running, it's fun to watch the USRA national points to see where you go, especially with the USRA Nationals being at Wheatland (Oct. 7-9). "This will be our first Nationals. We like to camp and hang out and the family likes to go. We're all looking forward to it. They come from all over for the Nationals. It ought to be some good racing." The team's sponsors include True Commodities, Troop 4 Motorsports, Crosstown Vending, Allen's Automotive, H3 Graphics and Schulze Racing Engines. Dad can win a recliner: To commemorate Father's Day weekend, all dads in attendance on Saturday can sign up for a chance to win a reclining chair from Scott's Furniture in Osceola. Sign-up will take place at the Protect the Harvest table on the midway and a drawing to determine the winner will be held during intermission.

Kids ages 5-12 can sign up on the midway, behind the main grandstands, before 5 p.m. with eight names drawn for a special pit-area tour at 5:15 with flagman Mike Striegel. They will get to meet some of the drivers, see the cars up close and attend the drivers' meeting prior to return to the midway. Each of the eight will receive a Frogs Jr Fan Club T-Shirt, checkered flag and a gift bag sponsored by RaceGear Unlimited to put items in they receive from the drivers.

- BALLOU BESTS BRIDGEPORT FIELD IN ROUND TWO OF USAC'S EASTERN STORM
Swedesboro, New Jersey (June 16, 2021)………Robert Ballou's first career victory in the state of New Jersey during the 2015 USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car season led him to an Eastern Storm title and, ultimately, a USAC National title late that year. Wednesday night in round two of the 2021 edition of Eastern Storm, Ballou's triumph at New Jersey's Bridgeport Motorsports Park just so happened to propel the Rocklin, Calif. driver into the Eastern Storm point lead. Granted, a long road ahead awaits Ballou, along with everyone else, for that matter. Three events remain on the Eastern Storm docket this week and five more months of racing is marked on the calendar before a USAC National champion is decided. However, Ballou's stock in mid-June is on the rise and his results have shown that through and through as the only driver in the series to achieve a top-ten finish in 13 consecutive races. His 31st career USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car feature win at Bridgeport moved him past Tyler Courtney and into sole possession of 14th place on the all-time series win list, just one behind 1973 driving champion Rollie Beale. Ballou did it basically serving as his own crew chief, calling the shots on the decisions that are made on race night as well as bigger picture decisions at the shop, like his move to revamp his lineup of cars in the offseason after going winless for nearly three consecutive seasons. With now two USAC victories to his credit this year in his Ballou Motorsports/Suburban Subaru - Berks Western Telecom/Triple X/Ott Chevy, that move has been proven to suit him well thus far. "We switched chassis over the winter," Ballou explained. "I used to run them back in 2010 and thought that we should change back. We have two cars now and they're unbelievable, and I just had to get a balance. There's a fine line in getting it just right. I'm probably the biggest pain in the (butt) driver, but as of now, I'm the crew chief, so I can only be mad at myself, but I've got really good guys that keep busting their butts every night." After moving from 6th to 1st in his heat race earlier in the night, Ballou began his 30-lap quest in the feature from the fifth spot. With that said, Ballou didn't spend much time middling back the third row for too long as he jumped up to third on the opening lap, then settled into fourth for much of the first third of the race while pole sitter Shane Cottle blitzed away from the field, withstanding heavy pressure delivered early on by Briggs Danner who started fourth. By lap 11, Cottle had opened his lead up to one second-plus while Danner attempted to fend off an on-the-move Ballou to no avail. Ballou ducked under Danner in turn three on the 11th lap and drag raced the USAC East Coast Sprint Car star wheel-to-wheel down the front straightaway. Danner had Ballou by a half-car-length at the start/finish line, but the writing was on the wall as Ballou tore by Danner with a slide job into turn one to overtake the runner-up position just as he and his car began to get into a rhythmic groove. "When I have a full load of fuel in my racecar, the car gets kind of lazy," Ballou explained. "It takes four or five laps for the thing to come to life and burn off a couple gallons of fuel, and kind of get back up on the arms." At that point, it seemed as if it would take a little time, or a bit of fortuitousness, for Ballou to track down and cut into Cottle's lead. However, Ballou figuratively grabbed a shovel and feverishly went digging. On each ensuing trip around the 4/10-mile, Ballou carved a quarter-second chunk away from Cottle as the pair headed to face-off with the tail end of the field. Ballou tailed Cottle for the following five laps, unable to strike a blow due to either not being close enough to make a move or, rather, encountering traffic that was occupying the low line, which prevented a slider attempt. However, on the 17th lap, the oceans parted on the back straightaway and Ballou stepped his way through by virtue of a massive run off turn two, then bolted onto the bottom line of turn three to assume the number one spot. Down the stretch, Ballou encountered his fair share of obstacles in the depths of traffic, yet still ably gapped Cottle to the tune of 1.852 seconds at race's end as he closed out his fifth career Eastern Storm feature win, second most all-time behind the six shared by Bryan Clauson, Levi Jones and Chris Windom. A literal last-minute deal was put together for Shane Cottle (Kansas, Ill.) to compete during Eastern Storm in one of the more familiar local cars that competes annually on USAC's tour of the east, the Tim Hogue/Boulevard Truck Repair - Bout the Hops Brewing - VP Racing Fuels/DRC/Ott Chevy. Cottle rewarded the New Jersey based team with a race-high 16 laps led while earning the team's best USAC National Sprint Car finish in just his second ever start for the team. "We've got a good group of guys over there and they put together a good car for me tonight," Cottle remarked. "This was a lot of fun and it's the first time I've been here; it's a neat racetrack. The track got really technical, and it was a lot of fun." Chris Windom (Canton, Ill.) slotted back onto the podium with a 3rd place finish at Bridgeport aboard his Hayward Motorsports/NOS Energy Drink - B & H Contractors - AMSOIL/DRC/Claxton Mopar, coming back from an early-race near incident nine laps into the feature that dropped him a spot and forced him to play catch up throughout to retake third just six laps from the finish. "We made a step in the right direction by running in the top-three tonight," Windom stated. "I just couldn't quite figure out the first 10 laps where exactly to go and lost a little ground. (In the incident) I had to lift big off two and lost some time there. We probably weren't a winning car but could've run second there. Once I got up and just put it on the fence, we were pretty good." Ballou's Bridgeport victory worth $6,000 was the second non-stop, caution free feature he's won with USAC this year. In total, four of the 14 series feature races run this year have gone caution-free: Feb. 11 at Ocala; twice on May 8 at Eldora and again on Thursday. Justin Grant recorded the 27th Fatheadz Fast Qualifying time of his USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car career at Bridgeport. That moved the Ione, Calif. driver past Jay Drake and tied him with Dave Steele and Chase Stockon for 14th all-time. ========================================== USAC AMSOIL SPRINT CAR NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP RACE RESULTS: June 16, 2021 - Bridgeport Motorsports Park - Swedesboro, New Jersey - 4/10-Mile Dirt Track - Eastern Storm FATHEADZ EYEWEAR QUALIFYING: 1.

- Andruskevitch Dominated Charleston for Night One Win for SPEEDweek
Charleston, IL. (06/16/2021) Aaron Andruskevitch of Riverton, IL. earned his 13th Lucas Oil POWRi 600cc Micro Sprint League Presented by Engler Machine & Tool win on his career. Aaron led the field to the drop of the green flag and led all 20-laps to find himself back in victory lane. Aaron started side-by-side on the front row to line up the feature, with Shain Kaiser to his inside. Aaron was able to come out of the gate strong and take off to the early lead. The field filed in behind the leader and ran single file, right around the middle of the track. The caution flag waved with six laps to go for Frank Galusha who pulled to the infield. The field went back green, Aaron still the leader, Aubrey Smith found herself in a battle with second, she stole second place from Shain Kaiser, and Kaiser fell to third. Bradley Fezard followed in fourth and Trevin Little in fifth. Andruskevitch captured his 13th POWRi victory and is off to a great start for the SPEEDweek points battle.

- Larson becomes first repeat winner in Ohio Sprint Speedweek with Waynesfield victory
WAYNESFIELD, Ohio - Elk Grove, California's Kyle Larson became the first repeat winner of the 39th Annual Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek Presented by Hercules Tire with a convincing win at Waynesfield Raceway Park on Wednesday, June 16 for the Rick Ferkel Classic. Larson had a terrific battle with Rico Abreu in the middle stages of the race, actually surrendering the lead to the St. Helena, California driver for a couple of laps before regaining the lead and driving to his 26th career FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions Presented by Mobile 1 victory. Larson, who has been on a tear in NASCAR Cup Series competition as of late with three wins to sit second in the top tier point standings, also scored a speedweek win Monday at Wayne County Speedway near Orrville, Ohio. The win at "The Field" is Larson's 14th career victory in Ohio Speedweek history. "Really cool to get another win. A huge thanks to all our partners Folkens Brothers Trucking, MAVTV, Durst Tarlton, JVI Group, Finley Farms, Glenn Styres Racing, Macaris…there's a lot of people that help out Paul (Silva). Rico made me earn that one through traffic. I got a little bit kind of sloppy in my lanes. Just trying to get the moisture. The cushion had fallen off the banking off of two so I really didn't know where to run and he got by me on the bottom. And I was able to hit it right and slide him in three and four. I felt like the pace even slowed down so much down there I could make just a little more momentum up top. Awesome race track. I love Waynesfield. This is definitely my favorite Ohio track. I think this is my first wing win here…I think I finished second a couple of times with a wing and one without a wing. We're going to head to Nashville now and try to get a win on Sunday," said Larson. Abreu would settle for a second place finish. "That was fun racing. A fun track and a great crowd. This place…when it gets like that…it's a lot of fun racing, focusing on car control and mobility in my car. I felt like it was respectful everywhere and I could make up some time on him in three and four when I would hit it right. You had to run that seam and catch the moisture coming off and not get too high up where the track shelved off really bad," said Abreu beside his Rowdy Energy/Self Made Racing/Lucas Oil/Curb Records/Shop Rick dot com backed machine. Tyler Courtney battled in the top three all race long and finished out the podium. "This was my first time here…it's a pretty fun little race track. I've watched a lot of racing here on streaming services but never had chance to race here. We had a really great night and our NOS Energy Drink car was really good. But when you're racing with two of the best guys to do this it makes it pretty tough. I just kept making the wrong moves at the wrong time but to come home third in the week long thing we had a great night. I wasn't expecting this place to be that fast…I was caught a little off guard there in hot laps. Then we're running 10 second laps in qualifying…it kind of caught me off guard. I just learned the track as the night went and got better every time I hit the track," said Courtney in the ZMAX Lubricants backed #7BC. In the K&L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invader 360-305 challenge, Jared Horstman, a four time NRA champion, grabbed the lead from Randy Hannagan with just four laps to go and drove to the victory. "The car really came on there at the end and I found the groove before Randy could. What a great night and I'm so thankful for everyone who helps out on this team," said Horstman holding his three month old daughter in victory lane beside his M&W Construction, Miller Construction, T&D Interiors, K&L Ready Mix, K3 Dog Spa, Schnipke Brothers Tire, All Purpose Contracting backed machine. At the drop of the green for the 35-lap All Star feature new track record holder Sam Hafertepe Jr. tipped over and went to the work area. On the second attempt at a start Larson bolted into the lead over Cale Thomas, Abreu, Courtney, Zeb Wise and Bill Balog. Abreu wasted little time moving into second by lap three with Courtney following into third. Lapped traffic came into play by the eighth circuit but a caution gave Larson a clear track which he used to build a sizeable lead. But Abreu stayed on the bottom groove and slowly ate into Larson's advantage and dove under him for the lead on lap 16. Larson drove to his outside by Abreu led two more laps before Larson found his groove and drove back by for the lead on lap 18. Larson maintained about a three car length advantage and at times put two lapped cars between himself and Abreu who had his hands full with Courtney with Bill Balog and Cory Eliason in pursuit. Balog's run at the front came to an end on lap 28. Larson got a fantastic restart and drove away for the victory over Abreu, Courtney, Parker Price Miller and Zeb Wise. Following an opening lap spin, the 25 lap NRA feature went green to checkers. Max Stambaugh grabbed the early lead as Shawn Dancer, Ricky Peterson, Hannagan, Horstman and Tyler Gunn gave chase. Hannagan drove into second on lap three and immediately began to close on Stambaugh. Heavy lapped traffic by the 11 circuit allowed Hannagan to take a peak beneath the leader and eventually take the lead on lap 15. Horstman worked his way into second on lap 16 and four circuit later drove to the outside of Hannagan for the lead. Horstman went unchallenged the remaining four laps for the win with Hannagan, Stambaugh, Dancer and Harli White rounding out the top five. Waynesfield Raceway Park will be back in action July 3 for the Jack Hewitt/Bob Hampshire Classic with the FAST 410 winged sprints and Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series non-wing sprints in action.

- Axsom Takes Night One of POWRi SPEEDweek
Charleston, IL. (06/16/2021) Emerson Axsom of Franklin, IN. came out of the gate strong for the first night of the Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League SPEEDweek at Charleston Speedway. Taking the green flag and leading the 24-car field to the checkered flag, Axsom claimed his first POWRi National victory on the 2021 speedway. Axsom started off the night strong and claimed victory in the Auto Meter Heat Race No. 3, which started him on the front row for the 30-lap main event. Cannon McIntosh of Bixby, OK. lined up next to him, on the front row. The two took the field to green and never left the top side. On the initial green flag run, Axsom gapped the field, and everyone settled in behind him to battle it out for positions. A red for Emilio Hoover who got upside down, bunched the field back up with only 4 laps in. Positions two through six battled side-by-side while a few cautions slowed the runs. McIntosh and Axsom found themselves in an intense battle for the lead with a little under 18 laps to go. As McIntosh is battling back and forth, the yellow came out for a flat right rear on McIntosh's' car which resulted in going to the work area. After a few late race cautions, the field went back green. Axsom overcame lapped traffic, cautions, and slide jobs for the lead to continue on to pick up the win for night one of the Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League SPEEDweek. Daison Pursley came home second, Buddy Kofoid in third, Cannon McIntosh in fourth, and Brent Crews in the fifth position. "Last week I felt like we were pretty close with the USAC guys, so I knew we would have tons of momentum coming in tonight and hopefully to carry it on the rest of the season."

- COOL HAND BOBBY: Pierce Nets 28th Career Hell Tour Win in Season Opener at Brownstown
Tim Lance leads first laps, posts third-place finish after challenging Pierce new halfway mark By now, the fans of the DIRTcar Summer Nationals would typically expect three-time DIRTcar Summer Nationals champion Bobby Pierce to have ice in his veins while leading halfway through the race, deep in traffic with a hungry pack of his competitors behind him. But on Tuesday night at Brownstown Speedway, the Smooth Operator was getting worried. After leading the first 15 circuits of the 2021 season opener, Pierce, of Oakwood, IL, began taking on relentless pressure from someone behind him. That someone was a driver who'd yet to lead a single lap with the Summer Nationals since his return to full-time racing last year - Brimfield, IL's own Tim Lance. Lance, a regular on the tour in 2020, whipped his newer MB Customs Race Car around the bottom of the quarter-mile like the veteran racer he is and had Pierce completely reeled-in by Lap 18. That's when he made his move. "I was kind of a sitting duck, I felt like. Every lap I was watching my dad on the backstretch," Pierce told DIRTVision Pit Reporter Georgia Henneberry. With superb car control and speed at the very bottom of the track, Lance zoomed by Pierce, who was ripping the slicker top lane, into the lead and led Laps 19-21. Pierce was forced to battle back on the outside to take the spot back, which he did on Lap 22, but Lance didn't go away easy. The two battled inside-and-outside for another pair of circuits before Pierce cracked the whip and began to pull away as he reached lapped traffic. But he wasn't completely out of the woods yet. Devin Moran, the former World of Outlaws Rookie of the Year from Dresden, OH, found something on the top side of the speedway and reeled-in the lead duo as they dove head-first into lapped traffic in the final 10 laps. He mixed it up with Lance for several laps while simultaneously weaving through the slower cars, and finally got by Lance with just seven-to-go. Back out front, Pierce had pulled away to a more comfortable advantage and crossed the stripe for his 28th career tour victory - tying him for fifth on the all-time Feature wins list with three-time Hell Tour champion Scott Bloomquist. In Victory Lane, Pierce was visibly relieved to get the win after all the challenge he faced to get it. "That was a race," Pierce said. "I was pretty nervous. I didn't think we were going to hold onto it. About Lap 10 I kinda felt like I was struggling, so I knew with 30 laps to go it was going to be a long race." Moran crossed the stripe in second while Lance was able to hold off Tanner English for third. Three-time DIRTcar UMP Modified national champion Devin Gilpin completed the top-five. UP NEXT The Summer Nationals Late Models are back in action Wednesday night at Peoria Speedway for Round #2 of the 2021 campaign. Catch all the action live on DIRTVision presented by Drydene.

- BALLOU BESTS BRIDGEPORT FIELD IN ROUND TWO OF USAC’S EASTERN STORM
Robert Ballou’s first career victory in the state of New Jersey during the 2015 USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car season led him to an Eastern Storm title and, ultimately, a USAC National title late that year.
- FIRST TIME IN 50 YEARS: USAC SPRINTS RACE INTO SELINSGROVE THURSDAY
Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania (June 16, 2021)………No track has ever had to wait a half-century between holding its first and second USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship events, but the 50-year hiatus for Pennsylvania's Selinsgrove Speedway is over this Thursday night, June 17, when the series returns for its first visit to the half-mile since 1971. The event will serve as round three of the 14th edition of the Eastern Storm series, which consists of five USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car events during a span of six nights in Pennsylvania and New Jersey June 15-20. Mitch Smith pulled the upset against the USAC regulars during the 1971 Selinsgrove race, winning that night's feature event 50 summers ago, and holds the long-standing one-lap track record of 23.420 seconds for USAC that will, more than likely, be erased on Thursday night. For the high majority of Thursday's field of entries, most of their Selinsgrove experiences have occurred within the last calendar year. The debut USAC Silver Crown National Championship race took place at Selinsgrove in August of 2020 and was won in miraculous fashion by Shane Cottle (Kansas, Ill.) who charged from the 23rd starting position to the victory, making the winning pass only two laps from the end after earlier suffering engine trouble and was involved in a mid-race accident. Cottle, a 2013 Eastern Storm feature winner, will drive for car owner Tim Hogue in Thursday's USAC National Sprint Car event. The man Cottle passed at the end was C.J. Leary (Greenfield, Ind.) who established the USAC Silver Crown track record at Selinsgrove with a lap 21.676 seconds. Leary started from the pole, led the first 72 circuits of the 74-lap race and finished 2nd. Brady Bacon (Broken Arrow, Okla.) can also count himself as a winner at Selinsgrove, capturing the 2020 USAC East Sprint Car feature after leading the final seven laps of the 20-lap affair. The three-time USAC National Sprint Car champion also earned a 7th place result in the Silver Crown nightcap later in the evening. Likewise for Alex Bright (Collegeville, Pa.), the USAC East Coast Sprint Car point leader, who won with the series at Selinsgrove on May 22 of this year, making a pass for the victory with just four laps remaining. Bright also led the first two laps with USAC EC at Selinsgrove in 2020 before finishing 5th. Bright is one of several east coasters with USAC experience at Selinsgrove, and who will be competing this Thursday night with the USAC National Sprint Cars, including Carmen Perigo (Stoystown, Pa.), Steven Drevicki (Reading, Pa.), Briggs Danner (Allentown, Pa.), Mark Smith (Sunbury, Pa.), Nash Ely (Sinking Spring, Pa.) and Chris Allen Jr. (Monroe, N.J.). Timmy Buckwalter (Douglassville, Pa.) has yet to compete with USAC at Selinsgrove. Perigo finished 5th in his USAC Silver Crown run at Selinsgrove in 2020. His two USAC East Coast Sprint Car appearances there have resulted in an 8th in 2020 and a 3rd in 2021 where he also won his heat race. Three-time USAC East Coast Sprint Car champion Drevicki took the runner-up spot with the series in 2020 behind Bacon, and also won his heat race in 2021. Danner, likewise, was 2nd in 2021 after leading the first 21 laps with the USAC EC series. Smith was 3rd with USAC EC in 2020 and 4th in 2021. Ely's Selinsgrove debut took him to a 6th with USAC EC back in May of this year while Allen finished 7th in both of his USAC EC starts in 2020 and 2021. Kevin Thomas Jr. (Cullman, Ala.) finished 4th with USAC EC at Selinsgrove in 2020 and was running 5th in the Silver Crown portion when he was involved in an incident that knocked out his front end with just a little more than 20 laps remaining. Chris Windom (Canton, Ill.) also occupied a spot inside the top-five in the 2020 Silver Crown race when his right rear tire went flat with just a few laps remaining. Justin Grant (Ione, Calif.) was running 2nd when trouble befell him in the event and the same for Logan Seavey (Sutter, Calif.), a top-five occupant in the final laps before dropping back at the finish. Jake Swanson (Anaheim, Calif.) and Matt Westfall (Pleasant Hill, Ohio) also had top-notch qualifying runs during their Silver Crown trip to Selinsgrove. Swanson qualified 4th and Westfall 7th before both experienced hardship in the feature event. Robert Ballou (Rocklin, Calif.), the 2015 Eastern Storm champion, was leading the 2020 USAC East Coast Sprint Car feature with seven laps remaining when he flipped. Several talented individuals will make their Selinsgrove USAC debuts on Thursday night. Among them are 14-time USAC National Sprint Car feature winner Chase Stockon plus two-time Pennsylvania USAC National Sprint Car winner in 2021, Tanner Thorson (Minden, Nev.). Thorson, the 2016 USAC National Midget champion, is currently the leading candidate for Rookie of the Year with the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Cars in 2021. Fellow Rookie and a top-ten resident in the current standings, Paul Nienhiser (Chapin, Ill.), will make his first trip to Selinsgrove on Thursday as will 2016 USAC National Sprint Car Rookie of the Year, Isaac Chapple; 2020 USAC National Most Improved Driver Brandon Mattox (Terre Haute, Ind.), 2018 USAC Southwest Sprint Car champion Charles Davis Jr. (Buckeye, Ariz.), first-time Eastern Storm competitor Alex Banales (Lafayette, Ind.) and more. Eastern Storm round number three at Selinsgrove will feature both the 410 c.i. USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship and the 360 c.i. USAC Rapid Tire East Coast Sprint Cars. Pits open at 4:30pm EDT with grandstands opening at 5:30pm, the drivers meeting at 6pm and hot laps at 6:30pm. Adult admission tickets are $25, students age 12 to 17 are $15 and children 11 and under will be admitted free. Add $2 for grandstand reserved seats. Pit passes are $40.

- UMP MODS TAKE CENTER STAGE SATURDAY AT SHARON FOR $1000 TO-WIN PLUS STOCKS, RUSH SPORTSMAN MODS & ECONO MODS
(Hartford, OH)…Sharon Speedway will wrap up a busy stretch of racing with its fourth event in nine days this Saturday night (June 19) as the 92nd anniversary season rolls on. The "Steel Valley Thunder" program will feature the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply UMP Modifieds along Gibson Insurance Agency Pro Stocks, HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds, and Whelen Econo Mods. Race time is 7 p.m. The UMP Mods will make their second appearances of the 2021 season on Saturday night. Back on April 24 at the season opener, Dave Hess, Jr. captured his fourth career win. Ty Rhoades charged from 13th to second and will be hungry for the $1,000 payday on Saturday. Joel Watson, who has 28 career Sharon wins, was fourth. The second show was scheduled for May 26, but that night fell victim to Mother Nature. The next appearance by the UMP Mods will be on July 31. Sharon is part of the East Region that offers $2,000 to the champion with the top 10 receiving point fund monies, while the national UMP champion will take home $20,000. Due to rain and some scheduled nights off, the Gibson Insurance Agency Pro Stocks had completed just two events prior to last Saturday night's successful third annual "Steel Valley Nationals" that saw 64 cars compete. Chris Schneider's victory in the $10,000 event denied Curt J. Bish of starting the season off with three straight victories and his bid for two straight $10,000 "Steel Valley Nationals" wins. Bish, the 2019 track champion, has a nine-point edge on 2018 champion Chris McGuire, who appeared headed to victory on Saturday before tagging the fence and suffering a flat tire 10 laps from the finish. Chase Lambert, Larry Kugel, and Coleton Walters are third through fifth in points. The Stocks will race for the $700 to-win payoff on Saturday night if 24 or more cars are present. After a night off from Sharon, the HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds return on Saturday night for their fourth show of the 2021 season. Drivers will not only be battling for Sharon points, but also the $3,500 to-win Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Weekly Series and the $1,000 to-win Wedge Motorsports "Route 7 Rumble" Series Championship. Chas Wolbert has won two of three events to date with a runner-up the other night to lead the Sharon points by 10 over Justin Shea. Fourteen-year-old rookie Ben Easler is third in points and is fresh off his first career win last Friday night at Raceway 7. Shea, who has returned to racing this year after nearly three years off, leads both the Weekly Series and "Route 7 Rumble" standings. If 24 or more cars are on hand, the RUSH Mods will be competing for the $500 to-win increased payoff. The Whelen Econo Mods will also be back after a week off and like the RUSH Mods will look to complete their fourth show as well on Saturday night. The Econo Mods were part of the opener on April 24 when Dennis Lunger, Jr. made his first ever start in the division a successful one winning over 17th starting Jeremy Double. Then on May 15 it was Will Thomas III capturing his first ever Econo Mod win in his first start with Double once again coming home in second. After a pair of runner-up finishes, Doubled cracked victory lane on June 5 for his 15th career win, which is tops amongst active drivers. Nate Young is second in points and despite Double's three top two finishes, is just eight points back. Nate's cousin Jarrett is tied for third in points with Thomas, while Travis Creech completes the top five.

- NEW BLOOMSBURG DIRT TRACK DEBUTS SUNDAY WITH USAC EASTERN STORM FINALE
Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania (June 16, 2021)………The newest facility in Pennsylvania racing circles, and on USAC's racing calendar, is having the finishing touches put upon it in preparation for this Sunday night's 2021 USAC Eastern Storm finale at Bloomsburg Fair Raceway featuring the USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship on June 20. It's been 35 years since auto racing has been held at the Bloomsburg Fairgrounds and Sunday will mark the first appearance of USAC at the track, which was formerly a half-mile, but is now a 3/8-mile dirt oval. Construction started on the facility in January and, basically, using a clean sheet of paper, the grounds were completely revamped and upgraded from top to bottom, mixing the classic covered grandstand with modern amenities to create a top notch facility with no stone left unturned, literally. The clay has been screened, a big process mind you, but ideal in taking the time to do it the right way right out of the box. "It's a cool town with a great racing history and we're really looking forward to Sunday," USAC Executive Vice President Levi Jones said. "The wall and fence, scoreboard, tower, everything is new. It's a great fairgrounds with bathrooms, concessions, grandstands and all new lighting. It's perfect." It started with a clean sheet of paper, redoing the shape of the track that was there," Jones added. "It's awesome to have a place that's building a track. We talk about tracks that are shutting down, forced to close or moved, but to have a place that's revamping a track, that's what we need." In January 2021, Jones and Randy Mausteller partook in the first ceremonial laps on the new Bloomsburg track in a sprint car and midget, respectively, the first laps turned at Bloomsburg since 1986. Since that point five months earlier, construction has been a constant at the track, albeit having to fight the elements of snow at first, and rain in the spring. Kokomo Speedway General Manager Reece O'Connor has been brought in by the Bloomsburg Fair Raceway to prepare the racing surface leading up to the opener as well as on Sunday's race day for the Eastern Storm closer. Pennsylvania is well-known for its big half-mile dirt ovals, many of which are a half-mile in length. Bloomsburg will serve as a fairly unique track in the region in that sense with a more bullring type of feel for sprint car and midget racing. The half-mile track surrounding the new 3/8-mile dirt oval remains and will still be utilized for horse racing and tractor pull events. The venue is used extensively for concerts during the fair, making it truly a multi-use facility in all facets. Among the drivers competing with the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Cars at Bloomsburg on Sunday are a number of prior Eastern Storm champions: 2014-Brady Bacon (Broken Arrow, Okla.), 2015-Robert Ballou (Rocklin, Calif.), 2017 & 2018-Chris Windom (Canton, Ill.) and 2019-C.J. Leary (Greenfield, Ind.) as well as 2021's Eastern Storm opener Justin Grant (Ione, Calif.), plus Pennsylvania USAC Sprint Car winners Kevin Thomas Jr. (Cullman, Ala.), Chase Stockon (Fort Branch, Ind.), Tanner Thorson (Minden, Nev.) and Shane Cottle (Kansas, Ill.) along with 2018 USAC National Midget champ Logan Seavey (Sutter, Calif.) Pennsylvania stars Briggs Danner (Allentown, Pa.), Alex Bright (Collegeville, Pa.), Timmy Buckwalter (Douglassville, Pa.), Steven Drevicki (Reading, Pa.) and Mark Smith (Sunbury, Pa.) will also be in the hunt, along with many others, to try to win one for the home crowd. The first real test of at the track will come this Thursday night, June 17, with an open practice for Sprint Cars, Late Models, Dirt Modifieds and Winged 600 Micro Sprints from 5pm to 8pm EDT. Admission is free. Concession stands will also be open. On race day this Sunday at Bloomsburg, the ULMS Late Models will also be in action alongside the USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship. Pits open on Sunday at 3pm EDT with spectator gates opening at 5pm, drivers meeting at 5:45pm and cars on track at 6:15pm. Adult admission tickets are $30, students are $20 and children 12 and under will be admitted free. Pit passes are $40. All Eastern Storm events will be streamed live on FloRacing at https://bit.ly/3dgONXz. This Sunday's USAC Sprint race won't be the only National event of the season at Bloomsburg. The USAC NOS Energy Drink Midget National Championship comes to the track on August 6 during Eastern Midget Week.

- Danny Dietrich goes wire-to-wire at Sharon Speedway for Ohio Sprint Speedweek victory
HARTFORD, Ohio (June 15, 2021) - Representing his Pennsylvania Posse fanbase proudly, "Double-D" Danny Dietrich is now a Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires main event winner, scoring his first-ever Speedweek victory in convincing fashion during competition at Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio, on Tuesday, June 15. Although a first-ever FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory during Ohio Sprint Speedweek, the Gettysburg, Pennsylvania-native is now the owner of 14 total Series victories over the course of his career; a first-ever in Hartford and a first-ever in Ohio. Dietrich earned a $6,000 payday for his wire-to-wire performance, as well as full control of the Ohio Sprint Speedweek championship point standings, holding a 12-point cushion over "Sunshine" Tyler Courtney. "This goes out to my buddy Derek (Snyder) of Sweeney and Pace Performance; this win is for him," Danny Dietrich said, driver of the Gary Kauffman Racing,Weikert's Livestock, Sandoe's Fruit Market, Pace Performance, Big Cove Whitetail Trophy Hunts, Bowhunters Superstore, Drop Of Ink Tattoo, Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC, Self Made, No. 48 sprint car. "That was fun. We had one slip away from us at Fremont on Saturday, so we wanted to get this one pretty bad, especially at Derek's home track. He does so much for this team and we wouldn't be able to do any of this without him. We still have a lot of racing left this week. We'll try to get a few more of these and hopefully a Speedweek title." As mentioned, Danny Dietrich led all 35 circuits on Tuesday night at Sharon Speedway, earning the initial jump from the outside-pole position over fellow front row starter, George Hobaugh. Utilizing the very bottom of the Speedway, Dietrich's campaign at the front of the field was relatively undisturbed, as only two cautions disrupted action; one on lap 25 and a second on lap 31. Despite the stoppages, Dietrich was unchallenged, driving on to maintain his advantage and ultimately score the $6,000 victory over Tyler Courtney and Justin Peck. Lapped traffic did force Dietrich to check-up on certain occasions, which made its first appearance on lap 11, and then again briefly on lap 31 before a caution. With all cars, including the lappers, utilizing the very bottom of the speedway, slipping by traffic required patience. Despite the single groove, Dietrich persevered, never allowing Courtney to show his nose, even during a few instances where the top-two were battling nose-to-tail. "I knew I needed to get the initial jump. That was on my mind from the start. I didn't want to let that one slip by," Danny Dietrich continued. "Once we got to the front, I just needed to stay patient and focus on maintaining the line through each corner. With a single groove like that, I knew it was going to be tough for anyone to drive around me, but you didn't want to slip up in the corner and let someone show their nose. You give any room, they'll get through. I just can't thank my team enough for their hard work and determination. It's been a pretty solid week so far. That's all we can ask for." Ohio Sprint Speedweek will continue on Wednesday evening, June 16, at Waynesfield Raceway Park in Waynesfield, Ohio.
