- Summit USRA Nationals open October with a bang
Real American racers are ready to rock the Hamilton County Speedway in Webster City, Iowa, this week as the historic half-mile dirt racetrack kicks off the 7th Annual Summit USRA Nationals powered by MyRacePass on Thursday. Slated for October 1-3, the United States Racing Association's annual fall classic will feature USRA Modifieds, American Racer USRA Stock Cars, USRA B-Mods and Mensink Racing Products USRA Hobby Stocks all three nights. USRA Tuners join the card Friday and Saturday. With a complete show of qualifying heat races and main events each night, the mega-event is also the season finale in the Christie Door Company Iron Man Challenge built by Medieval Chassis for both the Stock Car and B-Mod divisions. Sunoco USRA Factory Stock and USRA Limited Mod competitors will battle at the 3rd Annual Summit USRA Southern Nationals at the RPM Speedway in Crandall, Texas, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, November 5-7. Beginning in 2014, the first three Summit USRA Nationals took place at the Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kansas, and then moved to Mike and Kyle Johnson's I-35 Speedway in Winston, Missouri, for the 2017 and 2018 events before finding its way to the Hamilton County Speedway in 2019. The marquee event returns to the Show-Me State next season as the next three Summit USRA Nationals in 2021, 2022 and 2023 will be held at the Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Missouri. Each night of the 7th Annual Summit USRA Nationals award Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series national points. During the event, no USRA track or regional points are awarded anywhere and USRA national points are awarded here only. Sweetening the pot for competitors is the "true car count" bonus points awarded each night. At any given event at a USRA-sanctioned racetrack in America, each driver is awarded a car count bonus for national points that is equal to that event's car count with a maximum of 24 points for car counts of 24 or more. At the Summit USRA Nationals, however, each driver earns at least 60 car count bonus points with more awarded if the car count is higher in that class. There is no maximum. This system makes for a huge impact on the USRA national points battles in every division. THURSDAY, OCTOBER 1 Thursday's show will feature a complete program of qualifying heat races and feature events for USRA Modifieds, American Racer USRA Stock Cars, USRA B-Mods and Mensink Racing Products USRA Hobby Stocks. Competitors earn points on Thursday and Friday to determine line-ups for Saturday's championship features.

"It's truly unbelievable to see this event continue to grow," expressed RUSH Director Vicki Emig. "In 2017 this was a $2,500 to-win event spread over two nights and to see where it's come in three short years is amazing! The Miley Family continues their effort of showcasing the RUSH Late Models as their weekly headlining division with excellent car counts and was willing to do four Tour events during this difficult season. They had an idea to change things up this year and when we all put our heads together, the RUSH racers will now be showcased each night in full Tour events as part of the Pittsburgher in addition to the Non-Winners and Non-Qualifier events!" Each night will include $100 FK Rod Ends "Shock the Clock" Qualifying. Drivers will then compete in FK Rod End heats heat races paying $25 to-win. The dash will determine the beginning of the feature lineup each night. Last chance B mains will be run to complete the starting feature field. Not only is each night a $3,100 to-win Tour feature, but positions 1-5 and 11-24 have been increased over the standard $3,000 to-win Tour purse! And not only will Touring Series points be on the line, but each night will allow Weekly members the ability to earn Weekly Series points with the Weekly Series Championship being extended through end of the 2020 season due to COVID-19. In order to be eligible for the "One to Remember" race, driver must compete in the regular "Bill Hendren Memorial" event on Friday night and never have won a Late Model (full-size) feature or any headlining division feature event or prior "One to Remember" race. Drivers that have won non-qualifier races are still eligible to compete. The lineup will be determined off the qualifying times with a pill drawn for an invert (4, 6 or 8) depending on car count. Past "Bill Hendren Memorial" winners at Pittsburgh include John Mollick (2017), Daryl Charlier (2017-2018), and Kyle Lukon (2019). Past "One to Remember" winners include Chuck Medved (2018) and Logan Zarin (2019). There have three winners in three 2020 Tour races including Max Blair (Lernerville), Garret Paugh (Pittsburgh), and Michael Norris (Pittsburgh). Paugh and Norris' wins were their first career RUSH Tour wins. Jeremy Wonderling leads the Tour points by just six over Joe Martin. Wonderling is in search of his third straight Tour championship. Martin last competed with RUSH in 2015. Pittsburgh regular, John Mollick, is third. Michael Duritsky, Jr., who finished third in 2019 points, is fourth over veteran John Waters. Completing the top 10 in points are Late Model rookie Josh Ferry, Chad Sines, "Futures Cup" points leader Logan Zarin, Bill Kessler, and Ryan Frazee. Pittsburgh has completed 12 RUSH events to date this season with eight different winners! Ben Policz leads the way with four, while Zarin is the only other repeat winner with two. Others winners include Christian Schneider, Keith Barbara, Paugh, Norris, Lukon, and most recently Duritsky this past Saturday night in the $1,000 to-win topless show. "Miley Motor Sports has been thrilled with the RUSH Late Model Series racing this season at PPMS," expressed Matt Miley. "The 2020 season has been reminiscent of the Late Model racing of days past; intense, competitive, high car counts, and lots of great side-by-side racing. Weekly Late Model racing is back at PPMS- RUSH style! The Herb Scott, Jook Geroge, Red Miley, and the Bill Hendren Memorial, which is now not one but two Tour events! These men made racing what it is today; competitors, car owners, businessmen who never let the sport we love down. They were great men on and off the track and in their respective communities." "Miley Motor Sports is extremely proud to host these top notch RUSH events," added Matt Miley. "We can't thank all of those who have made them happen enough. It reenergizes an old team. We didn't even know if we could hold a race this season due to COVID-19, but we had fantastic support from Robert Johnson of the USMA hurdling COVID-19 issues. Everyone has been very cooperative during this different kind of season. Plans are already in the works to re-clay 'The Monster' for season #33 in 2021 featuring the RUSH Dirt Late Model Series." In 2005, Bill Hendren, the patriarch of the Hendren family and founder of Hendren Racing Engines, had the foresight to began building his affiliation with crate racing. As many of his open engine customers looked to crate racing as an opportunity to continue racing Bill began offering free advice via the well know 4M.net message board. As the concept grew throughout the country, his generosity and expertise was rewarded as many of those who had utilized his knowledge in the beginning utilized him as their engine rebuilder as their needs arose. Bill passed away on March 19, 2011, but his legacy and dedication to crate racing lives on through his sons, Steve and Mike, as the Hendrens are recognized throughout the entire country as a leader in this specialized form of racing as they continue to operate Hendren Racing Engines. "I look back to several years ago to a surprise phone call I received from Steve Hendren expressing interest in having a memorial event for his late father Bill Hendren in conjunction with a RUSH Touring event," explained Emig. "Although I never knew Bill Hendren personally, I certainly was well aware of his pioneering spirit and great success in the world of GM Performance crate engine racing. And to have the Hendren Family allow us to hold their patriarch's only memorial event of the year under the RUSH banner is truly an honor. What Steve and his family continue to do for this event is tremendous! We have to thank all of the contributors as well as the Mileys for allowing this event to be part of the Pittsburgher 100 weekend." "Bill Hendren Memorial" presented by FK Rod Ends in conjunction with Pro Fabrication Feature Payoff EACH night: 1. $3,100 2. $1,550 3. $825 4. $625 5. $525 6. $475 7. $450 8. $425 9. $400 10. $350 11. $325 12. $310 13. $300 14. $295 15. $290 16. $285 17. $280 18-24. $275.

- DIRTcar's OktoberFAST Driving Traffic Back to the NY State Fairgrounds
SYRACUSE, NY — Sept. 29, 2020 — For more than 40 years each October, the Orange Lot at the New York State Fairgrounds was home to some of DIRTcar Racing's most ardent fans. They camped no matter the weather for a chance to watch their heroes take on the Moody Mile in search of Super DIRT Week glory. In a year like no other, DIRTcar Racing returns to the New York State Fairgrounds this October … on the big screen. With a Drive-In Theater set up in the Orange Lot, fans can watch all of the action with many of their racing legends from OktoberFAST presented by DIRTVision, an event with over $300,000 in purse and prize money featuring six races in six nights at iconic dirt tracks across New York. DIRTVision is broadcasting all six nights live around the world, and it will simulcast the action to the New York State Fairgrounds theater in the Orange Lot, which has audio through an FM transmitter and exterior speakers. The cost per car is only $39, same as a DIRTVision FAST PASS subscription. The six nights of racing include: Oct. 6 at Albany-Saratoga Speedway — Super DIRTcar Series, DIRTcar Sportsman Modifieds, and DIRTcar Pro Stocks. Oct. 7 at Utica-Rome Speedway — Super DIRTcar Series, DIRTcar 358 Modifieds, and Pro Stocks. Oct. 8 at Fulton Speedway — Super DIRTcar Series, DIRTcar 358 Modifieds, and DIRTcar Sportsman Modifieds. Oct. 9 at Can-Am Speedway — Super DIRTcar Series, DIRTcar 358 Modifieds, and DIRTcar Sportsman Modifieds. Oct. 10 at Land of Legends Raceway — Super DIRTcar Series Big Blocks and DIRTcar Sportsman Modifieds. Oct. 11 at Weedsport Speedway — Super DIRTcar Series, DIRTcar Sportsman Modifieds, and DIRTcar Pro Stocks. The event is fast-approaching so make plans to reminisce about the history of DIRTcar Racing at the NY State Fairgrounds with friends and family while watching OktoberFAST presented by DIRTVision on the big screen. The registration deadline for drivers and crew is Friday, Oct. 2. For detailed information, including driver registration, schedules, news and more, click SuperDIRTcarSeries.com/Oktoberfast. HOMEGROWN HERO: Albany-Saratoga DIRTcar Pro Stock Racer Gears Up to Kick Off OktoberFAST at Home Track Posted: 29 Sep 2020 11:20 AM PDT Family-owned team takes on huge week of DIRTcar Racing on DIRTVision, Oct. 6-11 BALLSTON SPA, NY — The full-fendered DIRTcar Pro Stocks visually stand out amongst the four premier DIRTcar Northeast Series, and the standout class has standout drivers like Jay Fitzgerald, who has wheeled a Pro Stock since 1996. Fitzgerald and his family-run race team out of Ballston Spa, NY, are set to take on DIRTcar OktoberFAST presented by DIRTVision, which runs Oct. 6-11 at iconic dirt tracks across New York. The DIRTcar Pro Stock Series presented by COMP Cams is set to race three times over the six-day DIRTcar Racing extravaganza, beginning Tuesday, Oct. 6, at Fitzgerald's home track Albany-Saratoga Speedway. Next, the Pro Stocks roll to Utica-Rome Speedway on Wednesday, Oct. 7, and then return to the schedule for the OktoberFAST finale at Weedsport Speedway on Sunday, Oct. 11. Every night of racing will be broadcast live around the world on DIRTVision. But how did it all begin? Much the same way so many race car drivers get their start — a passed down passion for racing from Mom and Dad. "I have been going to Albany-Saratoga Speedway (Malta, NY) since I was three. My parents and my aunt and uncle were faithful Albany fans and we went every Friday night," said Fitzgerald. "In fact, my parents' house is only 10 minutes from the track. Currently where I live is only 10 minutes from the track so Albany has been my home since I was three." Fitzgerald's father owned a salvage yard in the 1970s. Salvage yards were goldmines for drivers and race car builders back then. One could find control arms, carbs, and even whole cars to take racing. That's how the Fitzgerland and the Older families hooked up initially, and how a young Jay was introduced to the true life of a racer. "Right around the corner from my house was a great friend of my Dad's, Marc Older. He raced all through the '70s. Marc's brother started racing in the '80s and before I could drive those guys would pick me up every weekend to go to the races. I got to go to the pits and I was only 10 years old. I learned a lot about life on those rides in the hauler," Fitzgerald said with a laugh. Although he learned a lot early, Fitzgerald didn't jump straight into DIRTcar Pro Stocks. He cut his teeth on an enduro car and then raced a half-season in street stocks. In 1996, he made his first Pro Stock start. Recently, Fitzgerald has gone all-in with his race team and brand new race shop where he'll run his classic car part business: Classic Muscle Parts. Work funds the racing but it's friends and family that fuels it. "Past couple of years we've gone all-in with chasing the Series. We did a lot of racing last year. I absolutely loved going to Canada last year," Fitzgerald noted. "My girlfriend, my stepdaughter, and I go on the road together. My stepdaughter is 16 and she is a real deal crew chief. She knows her stuff." In fact, we might just see a two-car team roll out of the Fitzgerald shop with the young lady behind the wheel in the near future. Stay tuned. 2020 has been a trying year for everyone and opportunities to race have been minimized. However, many DIRTcar sanctioned tracks opened the gates for Hoosier Racing Tire Weekly Championship points and live streaming. Fitzgerald accumulated 26 starts in 2020, which is impressive given the circumstances. That also means his ride needs a look over before running three DIRTcar Pro Stock Series presented by COMP Cams races in six days. "Our car is completely apart right now." Fitzgerald said. "We took the rear end out and that is getting looked at. We are going through all the suspension, changing springs, and any wear items. You don't want part failures in the middle of a week like this." Fitzgerald is excited to join the convoy of race cars crossing New York for OktoberFAST, but at least the first night, Tuesday, Oct. 6, is right at home at Albany-Saratoga Speedway. "Albany is my home so we are hoping for good things. We've had a great car all year but the level of competition is so high," noted Fitzgerald. "I looked at the Feature lineup a few weeks ago at Albany and every driver but one was a multi-time Feature winner." He hopes to start on the right foot in familiar territory. Next, the Series shoots down I-90 to Vernon, NY to race the half-mile Utica-Rome Speedway for another bout. Utica-Rome hosted races early on in 2020 and Fitzgerland felt very confident and racy there. He's looking forward to going back to take on the Series. The DIRTcar Pro Stock Series picks back up in the finale on Sunday, Oct. 11, at Weedsport Speedway. Fitzgerald has run only one race there, last year's Series stop. He is eager to tackle the historic speedway once again. Fitzgerald has an offer out to the touring Pro Stock drivers as well: "We open our shop for Series races to drivers who are traveling and need to work on the cars. We have scales, tools, food, and everybody hangs out. That's the fun part!" And that's what it's all about. Watch all the DIRTcar OktoberFAST action live all week on DIRTVision with a $39 Fast Pass subscription. For more news, schedules, and more information, click SuperDIRTcarSeries.com/oktoberfast.
