- CHRIS SCHNEIDER TOPS 64-CAR FIELD FOR BIGGEST CAREER WIN IN $10,000 "STEEL VALLEY PRO STOCK NATIONALS"; ANGIE GRZELAK BACK IN VICTORY LANE NEARLY 7 YEARS AFTER HER 1ST DWARF CAR WIN
(Hartford, OH)…Sharon Speedway hosted the third annual "Steel Valley Pro Stock Nationals" this weekend presented by Can-Am, Blue Ox Timber, and E&K Equipment. After practice, qualifying, and a king of the hill on Friday night, the balance of the program was completed on a beautiful Saturday evening in addition to a complete show for the Sportsman Dwarf Cars. Celebrating in the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply victory lane were Chris Schneider-Penn-Ohio Championship Series for the Gibson Insurance Agency Pro Stocks and Angie Grzelak in the Joe's Radiator Service/Waterstone Mortgage by Sara Cipriano/R Tumbleweed Transportation Sportsman Dwarf Cars. Chris Schneider has won every major Pro Stock race in the region over his many years of dominance with the exception of the "Steel Valley Nationals", which eluded him in the first two years of existence. On Saturday night, Schneider patiently made his way from the eighth starting spot, inherited the lead with 10 laps to go after leader Chris McGuire suffered a flat tire from hitting the fence, and led the remainder of the way for his biggest career win worth $10,000 for the Penn-Ohio Championship Series. Schneider became the third different winner in as many years. "I guess the outside was there," stated the 42-year-old Lower Burrell, Pa. racer when asked about McGuire. "I thought about running it (outside) but I figured I'd stay smooth, calm, and conservative. I probably would have done some donuts after the race, but I'm just way to calm for that right now. We've built a lot of cars, but I sold my new car. I really miss it; it was really smooth. I built this car in 2003. It's been sitting around and it's like an old friend. I always said I was going to win ten grand with it jokingly, but hey I guess it happened!" After the Diehl Automotive Pace Truck exited the speedway, Andrew Gordon raced into the early lead at the start of the 75-lap event over 2019 event winner Curt J. Bish. Schneider was halfway to the front when he passed Rob Shook on lap seven for fourth and brought Alan Dellinger with him. Dellinger, who was aboard Rod Laskey's #1R, was on the move as he passed both Schneider and Jason Johns to take over third on lap eight, while Schneider also got by Johns to maintain fourth. Lapped traffic came into play on lap 12 as Gordon had a half-straightaway lead on Bish. Dellinger ran down Bish and drove around him for second on lap 13. Dellinger was all over Gordon over the next five laps trying to find a way by and finally got a good enough run off turn two to sneak by on lap 18. Dellinger's lead was short-lived though as he pulled off one lap later handing the lead back to Gordon. Dellinger's misfortune moved Schneider to third and he then would grab runner-up on lap 31 getting by Bish. Schneider though found himself 4.3 seconds behind Gordon. As the laps ticked off caution-free, Schneider began to pick up the pace at the halfway mark and began to chew into Gordon's lead. The deficit shrank to less than two seconds on lap 40. Meanwhile, all eyes began to focus on seventh starting McGuire, who was powering around the fence. McGuire passed Johns for fourth on lap 44 then closed in on Schneider and Bish on lap 48. McGuire moved into third on lap 49 then drove around Schneider for second with a three-wide move in traffic on lap 51. McGuire trailed Gordon by 1.5 seconds by the time he made his way to second. McGuire quickly ran down Gordon and made the pass for the lead off turn four on lap 54. McGuire then distanced himself from the field, while the battle was on for second. Schneider made the important pass for the runner-up spot on lap 63 as he would inherit the lead three laps later after McGuire suffered a flat tire from hitting the fence one too many times too hard. After 65 caution-free laps, three more cautions followed the caution for McGuire over the next four laps. When green-replaced yellow for the final time on lap 70, Schneider pulled away and took his 14th career Sharon win by 3.190 seconds in his SS Chassis & Supply/Total Landscaping/Butler Truck Parts-sponsored #55. While Schneider checked out, a four-car battle ensued for second over the final six laps with Gordon taking the $3,000 runner-up honors. Bish was third for $1,500. Shook brought Jim Fosnaught's #20J home in fourth for $1,000. Thirty-two-time Sharon winner, Steve D'Apolito, had a strong run in fifth from the 14th starting spot. Completing the top 10 were Bobby Whitling, Dylan Cecce, Christian Schneider, McGuire, and Tim Bish. Chris Couchenour led all 15 laps of the B feature and elected to take the 30th starting spot in the A feature forfeiting what would have been a $500 payday. Couchenour was able to make his way up to 13th in the feature finish to earn $350 instead. On Friday night, Gordon set fast over the 64-car field with a 19.301 to earn $100 and then went on to win the king of the hill worth $250. Heat winners on Saturday night were Gordon, Dellinger, Joey Zambotti III, Bish, Shook, and Johns. Gordon also won the dash for the heat winners to set the first three rows of the feature. Paul Davis, Zach Gustafson, and Brett McDonald split the three last chance B mains. In addition to Can-Am, Blue Ox Timber, and E&K Equipment Other, other sponsors making the "Steel Valley Pro Stock Nationals" possible include Wedge Motorsports, Lynchwood Spirits, Bish Heating & Cooling, Les Frickshun, Crawford Custom Consulting, ITC Crane, R & R Enterprise Auto Sales & Garage, R.K.

Angie Grzelak passed her brother Joe on lap two and fended off his challenges over the remaining 14 laps to pick up the $500 win in the first appearance of the season by the Sportsman Dwarf Cars. Grzelak picked up her first career Sharon win on the old surface back on September 12, 2014 during the "Apple Festival Nationals", which was believed to be the first female winner in the storied history of Sharon Speedway, and returned to victory lane on Saturday night for the first time on the new red clay surface. "That was a lot of fun," expressed the 33-year-old Hubbard, Ohio driver. "This is such a great track for our cars- I just love it here. When I'm racing with my brother, I'm always nervous. I'm still trying to catch my breath- I don't think I breathed the whole race. I have to thank my dad at Joe's Radiator Service, who is one of the sponsors tonight along with Sara Cipriano and R Tumbleweed. I also have to thank my mom, who comes to every single one of races, my friends and family, the fans that come out, Dave (Willoughby) that puts us on the schedule " Tiffany Williams was docked a row for jumping the initial start, which put Joe Grzelak, Jr. on the outside pole and he raced into the lead on the opening lap with third starting Angie Grzelak moving to second past pole-sitter Steve Mix. Angie made the winning move on lap two as the sister-brother duo distanced themselves from the field. Twelve-year-old Luke Mulichak, who started eighth, was on the move as he passed Mix for third on lap seven, but lost the handle and spun to bring out the caution with two laps to go. Angie was able to hold off her brother Joe on the final two restarts in the Joe's Radiator Service-sponsored #57. Williams was third. Tyler Yoho, who was unable to start his heat race, came from 16th to finish fourth. Jacob Eakin was also unable to start his heat race and charged from 15th to fifth. Mix fell to sixth. Taylor Suchan was seventh. Corey Renforth and Jared Thompson were eighth and ninth in their first ever Sharon starts. Mulichak, a former Junior Sprint racer, came back from his spin with two laps to go to round out the top 10. The Dwarfs will return for two more appearances during the 92nd anniversary season presented by Joe's Radiator Service, Waterstone Mortgage of Hermitage by Sara Cipriano, and R Tumbleweed Transportation with the next coming on August 7 followed by September 10 for the "Apple Festival Nationals". Coming up on Tuesday (June 15) will be Ohio Speedweek for the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions for $6,000 to-win along with the Terry Bowser Excavating RUSH Sprint Cars. Warm-ups begin at 6:15 p.m. followed by All Star qualifying and racing.

- Arenz, Schmidt, Loehr, Lorier score in PDTR A-main action
(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) June 12, 2021 - The seventh Plymouth Dirt Track Racing program of the 2021 season produced plenty of action at the front of the field with three drivers visiting the Kunes RV Winners Circle in A-main action for the first time in 2021 and another earning back-to-back main event victories Saturday, June 12 at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. In A-main action, Travis Arenz of Sheboygan stormed to his second consecutive A-main victory of the 2021 campaign in the 25-lap Kristine Hartmann Pleasantview Realty 360 Sprint Car headliner. Three-time and defending PDTR Late Model champion Justin Schmidt of Cleveland shook off an uncharacteristically slow start to the season by claiming his first 25-lap Sheboygan's Country B93.7 Late Model main event victory of 2021. 2018 PDTR Grand National champion Matt Loehr of Dotyville notched is initial triumph of the 2021 season in the 25-lap Oostburg Automotive Grand National A main. Sheboygan's Steve Lorier was another 2021 first-time winner in the 25-lap PDTR B Mod A main. In the 25-lap 360 Sprint Car A main, third starter Will Gerrits of Waupun bolted past polesitter Mike Yurmanovich of Cascade and outside front row starter Justin Erickson of Plymouth to take the lead in turn two of the opening lap. On lap three, Travis Arenz, who started seventh, used the high groove to power his way into second. One lap later, Arenz swept past Gerrits to take over the top spot and he immediately proceeded to leave the field in his dust. Starting on lap 11, Arenz found himself negotiating heavy lapped traffic on the dry slick third-mile track surface. As Arenz enjoyed a comfortable half-lap lead, two-time PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion and current point leader Brandon McMullen of Oshkosh, who started eighth, worked his way into the runner-up spot. As the laps wound down, McMullen was able to close the gap slightly, but it was all Arenz at the front of the field as he cruised to his sixth career PDTR 360 Sprint Car A-main victory and second straight main event win at the Plymouth track in the caution-free event. McMullen had to settle for second, Gerrits wound up third, Erickson placed fourth and 2011 PDTR 360 Sprint Car champion Ben Schmidt of Howards Grove charged up to finish fifth after starting 16th. Polesitter Charlie Schmidt of Cedar Grove grabbed the lead at the drop of the green flag of the 25-lap Late Model A main with 2016 PDTR Late Model champ Tim Buhler of Greenbush in tow. On lap 3, Justin Schmidt used the cushion to shoot into third in the running order. The first of two caution flags appeared on lap 4 when Donny Singer of Random Lake spun in turn four. Following the restart, Justin Schmidt used the high line to move around Buhler into second on lap 5 before the second and final caution flag flew on lap 6 for a spin in turn four involving Sawyer Specht of Sheboygan Falls. When the race resumed, Justin Schmidt continued to stalk the low-riding Charlie Schmidt along the outside groove. On lap 12, Justin Schmidt assumed the lead utilizing the high line in turn four. After switching to the low line, Justin Schmidt went on to built up a comfortable cushion in the closing laps en route to his 14th career PDTR Late Model A-main victory by a half-lap margin. Charlie Schmidt finished second, Buhler placed third, fifth starter Turk Letizia of Milwaukee placed fourth and sixth starter Justin Ritchie of New London rounded out the top five. The 25-lap Grand National A main got off to a rousing start as octogenarian polesitter Dick Hed of Plymouth dueled side by side with outside front row starter Matt Loehr for the first six laps of the race. On lap 7, the cushion-pounding Loehr finally surged ahead of the low-riding Hed in turn four. The lone caution of the race appeared one lap later for a spin involving rookie Jacob Falk. Loehr used a strong restart to pull away to a commanding full-straightaway lead over third starting Donny Kulow of Elkhart Lake over the final 18 laps of the race on the way to his seventh career PDTR Grand National A main victory. Donny Kulow came home second, two-time PDTR Grand National champion Don Sorce Jr. of West Allis finished third after starting sixth, 2019 PDTR Grand national champ Tyler Kulow of Plymouth placed fourth after starting seventh and Hed rounded out the top five. Polesitter Justin Bauer of Sheboygan Falls seized the lead on the opening lap of the 25-lap B Mod as third starter Jonathon Baumann of Sheboygan moved into second on lap 3. The first of three caution flags appeared on lap 7 when Travis Schmidt of Waldo spun in turn four after contact with Sheboygan's Trevor Frank, which sent Frank to the rear of the field. On the restart, Frank, James Fischer of Oostburg and Patrick Hanson of Sheboygan Falls collided in turn two to bring out the second caution flag. Following the restart, Baumann flexed his muscle along the high groove to take over the to spot on lap 9 in turn two. The third and final caution flag appeared on lap 12 when Jonathan Hitsman of Sheboygan and Gary Glander of Sheboygan Falls made contact in turn four. Fifth starter Steve Lorier used a nifty low move on the restart to steal the lead away from Baumann in turn two on lap 13. However, Baumann battled back on the cushion to pull even with Lorier three laps later with the two drivers dueling side by side over the next three laps before Lorier finally surged ahead for good on lap 18 along the inside groove. Lorier went on to claim his third career PDTR B Mod A-main victory by a five-car margin over Baumann, who placed second. Bauer finished third, Rory Welch of Grafton, who started second, finished fourth and 12th starter Spencer Long of Sheboygan Falls came home fifth. Jack Vanderboom of Dousman won the first 12-lap 360 Sprint Car B main and Adam Miller of Plymouth claimed the victory in the second 12-lap 360 Sprint Car B main. The seventh PDTR program of the 2021 season, which was sponsored by Josfo Electric, drew 79 total cars, including 35 360 Sprint Cars, 18 B Mods, 15 Late Models and 11 Grand Nationals. PDTR action is scheduled to resume on Saturday, June 19 with action in the 360 Sprint Car, Late Model, Grand National and B Mod divisions.

Just before the halfway marker, Poe pulled up to challenge for the lead, but Frazon maintained his lead. Soon after, with Frazon leading the way, lapped traffic came into play by lap 13 to make things interesting up front until a pair of late-race caution flags bunched the field for a sprint to the finish. Meanwhile, Marc Carter moved in on the leaders and challenged Vaughn in third while Poe again searched for a way around Frazon at the front. At the finish of the highly competitive race, Frazon came away with his third win of the season with Poe second, Carter third, Vaughn fourth and Devin Irvin, who recovered from an early spin, rounding out the top five.

Wolfenbarger comfortably paced the field through a pair of early caution periods, leaving Schultz in a fierce battle for second with Shadren Turner. At the halfway point, the race dynamics began to change as Schultz pulled close to the leader and eventually grabbing the lead a short time later. The race stayed green the rest of the way and Schultz went on to capture his second win of the year and 69th career win at CMS. Turner finished second with Wolfenbarger collecting his best-ever finish in third, Jacob Ebert was fourth with Jeremy Lile fifth.

After the yellow flag waved over the field in the opening laps, Vaughn then set sail and distanced himself from the rest of the field. D.J. Barnes, Ryun and Hoover ran close inside the top five. Late in the race, as Vaughn checked out on the field, the best race was for second as Barnes prevailed for the position over Jason Ryun, Hoover, and Jimmie Workman. Vaughn ultimately captured his ninth career CMS win and first in the Pure Stocks.

It looked as though Bard would go unchallenged for the win but a caution flag on lap 13 slowed the field and setup a two-lap dash to the finish. On the next circuit Fischer made his way around Bard and went on to capture his third CMS win of the year. Bard stayed close in second with Layne, Billings, and Kenny Brown completing the top five.

- Upper Midwest Renegade Winged Sprints join in the Kids Night Fun
Mother Nature turned the temperature down just a bit on Saturday, but Chase Viebrock kept the heat turned all the way up in his #50 winger on kids' night at Cedar Lake Speedway. A robust 18 winged sprints checked in the back gate for their seventh event on the winged schedule for the Pirtek Renegades. In qualifying action, Patrick Heikkinen nabbed the checkers in the first heat, and Bob McVitty went flag-to-flag to win heat two. Viebrock accumulated the most passing points, but Todd Hansen snared the #1 pill in the redraw, with Viebrock to his right hand side. At the drop of the green, Viebrock jumped to cushion and into the lead, but the race was slowed by a caution just one lap in. On the restart, Viebrock again shot out to a big advantage, leaving Hansen, Owen Carlson, Pat Heikkinen and Ryan Buck to battle for second. Another caution just prior to halfway was the only thing that could slow down Viebrock, as he had lapped half the field at that point. Back under green, Viebrock went back to work, while Buck and Hansen engaged in a good high/low battle for position in the top five. At the double checkers it was Viebrock claiming his fourth consecutive win in dominating fashion. Heikkinen was second and Buck matched his career best with a third place finish. Hansen and Trevor Reding rounded out the top five. In other Renegade action, Brandon Palm scored his first win of the season for the Western Renegades at Devils Lake Speedway in Crary, North Dakota. The Pirtek Renegades return to action this Saturday, June 19, for the sprint car special at Ogilvie Raceway. Both divisions, the traditional and winged sprint cars attack the 3/8ths mile just east of Ogilvie, Minnesota.
- WINDOM WINS KOKOMO FINALE, KOFOID COLLECTS INDIANA MIDGET WEEK TITLE
Kokomo, Indiana (June 12, 2021)………With eight nights of racing over a 10-night span, the lengthiest and most rigorous Indiana Midget Week schedule in the 17-year history of the series bled into another day following a rain delay that pushed Saturday's USAC Indiana Midget Week finale at Kokomo Speedway into the early hours of Sunday for the USAC NOS Energy Drink Midget National Championship. For race winner Chris Windom, the agonizing wait couldn't end soon enough as the Canton, Ill. native endured three consecutive nights of Indiana Midget Week misery before prevailing with a winning performance at the quarter-mile track, a venue which has hosted many of the latest USAC Triple Crown Club member's career highlights, including pair of previous print car track championships and where he had most recently won with the USAC Midgets back in May. For 2021 Indiana Midget Week champion Buddy Kofoid, the title came right on time for the Penngrove, Calif. driver who finished off his second IMW run with a first title in the mini-series after finishing third in the final tally in 2020. Coupled with an extension of his point lead in the season-long USAC NOS Energy Drink Midget National Championship, Kofoid now holds a 47-point advantage and is fixed on translating his June success on an eight-race scale into a full-fledged run at the National title at year's end. Just four days prior, Windom led the IMW standings by double-digits and was riding a streak of three-straight top-three finishes. The three ensuing races leading into Kokomo saw results of 12th, 13th and 20th, which all but eliminated Windom's hopes and dreams for an Indiana Midget Week title before he even set foot at Kokomo. However, as has been the case throughout the entirety of his career, Kokomo was a sight for Windom's sore eyes as he approached the final race of Indiana Midget Week. After midnight, he let it all hang out as he shot to the front just shy of the midway point and led the remaining 17 laps to earn his eighth career USAC National Midget feature victory and his third win in the last three years of Indiana Midget Week aboard his CB Industries/NOS Energy Drink - PristineAuction.com - K & C Drywall/Spike/Speedway Toyota. "The last three nights have been some of the three crappiest I've had in a row in my career," Windom acknowledged. "These guys have had to work every single day in this hot weather. It's been a pretty crappy last three days for us and I know everybody was pretty down. But no one quit, and we came back. We had engine troubles after the heat, and they busted it to figure out what it was, and they got it fixed. I'm so happy to do this for these guys because they work so hard all week. Eight straight days is tough. We might not have won Indiana Midget Week, but we won the final night, and that's all you can ask for at this point." Amid a block of eight races, night after night, it takes a lot of good fortune to avoid any missteps or heartaches. Kofoid was not immune as he had his share with a night at Circle City Raceway in round five in which he was involved in two separate incidents during the feature that thwarted a quality finish and wound up with him upside down when all was said and done. However, Kofoid dug his way back to the top, and that's just the place he finished in the standings after carving a path from 13th to 7th in Kokomo's feature to secure the 2021 IMW points race and the crown by 20 points in his Keith Kunz-Curb-Agajanian Motorsports/Mobil 1 - TRD - IWX/Bullet By Spike/Speedway Toyota. The title was Kofoid's first in Indiana Midget Week following a third-place finish in the points during his first try in 2020. His 2021 IMW championship was also the unprecedented sixth for car owner Keith Kunz following previous five previous triumphs: Christopher Bell (2013), Rico Abreu (2014-15), Spencer Bayston (2018) and Logan Seavey (2019). "It was a fun week, but I'm glad it's over now," Kofoid said. "It's stressful, from winning to getting upside down, to losing it, to winning again, to having today where we didn't qualify great, finished second in the heat race, then started 13th while the guy I needed to beat (Logan Seavey) was on the front row. It was tough, but once I got by Logan, I just wanted the race to be over right there. That was a lot for me to handle." "I'm kind of at a loss for words; this is a really big win for me," Kofoid continued. "Winning Indiana Midget Week is huge; it's really tough to do. I owe it all to Jarrett (Martin), Grant (Penn) and Andrew (West), they do a hell of a job every time we hit the track. We've always got some sort of speed. I couldn't do this without (car owners) Keith (Kunz) and Pete (Willoughby), Keith Kunz Motorsports, Mobil 1 and Toyota for letting us come out here and have some fun." Kofoid led the IMW standings by seven coming into the 30-lap A-Main over teammate and 16th place starting Daison Pursley, and 11 markers over second-place starter Seavey. Windom, meanwhile, started third in the event, which was pushed to a 12:25am EDT start due to a lengthy rain delay following Fatheadz Eyewear qualifying, which ultimately resumed with midgets getting back on track for hot laps at 10:18pm. The opening sequence saw a spirited high/low contest between pole sitter Justin Grant and outside front row starter Seavey. The duo raced shoulder to shoulder for the first three laps with Grant edging Seavey at the line by a narrow margin for the first two before Seavey utilized the momentum off the top side to pace past Grant for the lead on lap three. On the ninth lap, Grant had re-reeled in Seavey, getting underneath the 2019 IMW champ entering the third turn. Seavey, in turn, bobbled over the cushion, allowing Grant to slip by to retake the spot while Windom nearly overtook both in one swing, missing out on the lead by a wheel, but now garnered Grant's full attention. Windom maintained his front bumper's presence to the left corner of Grant's line of vision until, on the 14th circuit, Windom pulled up the wheels and whipped past Grant to lead by a car length at the line. Grant refused to go quietly into the night, and continued to cruise the top line, but it proved to be too far around as Windom rolled the bottom to perfection and held serve a half second ahead. The race went caution free until lap 21 when 18th running Cannon McIntosh began to slow with mechanical trouble as the leaders began to bear down on him. Just as the yellow flag flew, 16th running Brenham Crouch glanced his right rear tire off the back straightaway wall at speed, sending him into a wild series of flips that landed the Rookie driver in turn three with smoke and steam billowing from his ride. Crouch walked away uninjured. Following the restart with nine to go, the ending of the story was being illustrated, and Windom held the pen, as he pulled away to win by a 1.661 second margin over Grant, with Jason McDougal, Emerson Axsom and Thomas Meseraull rounding out the top-five. In doing so, Windom became the first driver since Brady Bacon in 2017 to win consecutive USAC National Midget races at Kokomo. While on most occasions, Kokomo is won on the top, where Windom has mastered with a sprint car a copious amount of times, Windom had his CBI No. 89 operating so well on the low line at the quarter-mile dirt oval that there was no thought of changing anything up when he reached the front, no matter how fraught the initial desire to do so was. "The way the track changed, the bottom was tough to hit right," Windom explained. "But every time we're here, it seems like we're able to roll the bottom so well. I'm so used to running the top in a sprint car here, it's kind of tough to change up and run the bottom in a midget but this thing just works so good down there. We won down there the last two times we've won here, so I wasn't going to change anything up once I got the lead there." Following finishes of 21st, 19th and 24th in his three most recent series starts leading into Kokomo's finale, Justin Grant (Ione, Calif.) saved his best for last by turning in his finest performance of 2021 Indiana Midget Week while piloting the RMS Racing/NOS Energy Drink - EnviroFab - Response Management Services/Spike/Speedway Toyota. His runner-up finish equaled his top performance of the year after also finishing second at Tulsa, Oklahoma's Port City Raceway in April. Third-place Kokomo finisher Jason McDougal (Broken Arrow, Okla.) also made a much-needed recovery at Kokomo after suffering adversity the previous night at Gas City, with an axle snapping on him while running second on the final lap of the feature. Since McDougal has taken the wheel of the Robert Dalby Motorsports/RD Spring & Stamping - Walker Performance Filtration/Spike/Speedway Toyota at the beginning of the 2021 season, the "podium" finish at Kokomo turned out to be their best result thus far. Thomas Meseraull (San Jose, Calif.) advanced from his 11th starting spot to finish 5th in the feature, helping him to the ProSource Indiana Midget Week Passing Master title with a total of 47 cars passed throughout the entirety of the eight-race series. Series Rookie of the Year contender Chase Randall (Waco, Texas) earned his first career Fatheadz Fast Qualifying time with the USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midgets, clocking in with a lap of 13.112 seconds around Kokomo Speedway. =================================== USAC NOS ENERGY DRINK MIDGET NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP RACE RESULTS: June 12, 2021 - Kokomo Speedway - Kokomo, Indiana - 17th USAC Indiana Midget Week - 1/4-Mile Dirt Oval FATHEADZ EYEWEAR/DIRT RACING WRAP UP QUALIFYING: 1.

- Cole Duncan gets by Danny Dietrich in final corner for Fremont Speedweek victory
FREMONT, Ohio (June 12, 2021) - Leading the only lap that matters, Lockbourne, Ohio's Cole Duncan put FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 fans on their feet Saturday night at Fremont Speedway, capping round two of Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires with a last lap pass, a last corner pass, over race-long leader and Pennsylvania Posse invader, Danny Dietrich. The last-ditch effort not only secured a $6,000 payday for Duncan, pilot of the Helms Construction/Ohio Heating/No. 22C sprint car, but also a fifth-career victory against the Tony Stewart-owned organization, his first at "The Track That Action Built" and his first Series win since 2018. Impressive enough, Duncan's Fremont performance also solidified Hercules Tires Hard Charger honors, as his victory march commenced from eighth on the grid. "That was one hell of a race," an elated Duncan said in victory lane, who officially passed his father, Rodney, on the all-time All Star wins list; Rodney owns four. "I look up to my dad a lot and to pass him in the win column, in this fashion, is pretty cool. These All Star wins are tough to come by. This is a really tough field of cars and I'm not sure it's been this tough since my dad raced with the Series in the late 90's and early 2000's. As soon as I got the wing back, I knew we were going to be good tonight. I just want to thank all of the fans for coming out. This is one heck of a crowd." Despite starting eighth on the 40-lap grid, Duncan proved his winning potential right from the drop of the initial green, powering his way to fifth by lap six before utilizing a pair of back-to-back lap nine cautions to climb his way to third. Monrovia, Indiana's Justin Peck raced just ahead of Duncan in second with Danny Dietrich holding down the fort at the front of the field. The main event's final caution appeared on lap 13 setting up what would ultimately turn into a long-winded, 27-lap battle for the top three positions. For Duncan, it was all about patience, as well as perseverance, working every inch of Fremont Speedway's wide and slick surface to keep pace with Dietrich and Peck, even as the front runners weaved through traffic which appeared for the first time on lap 20. Lap after lap, Duncan hounded Peck for second, soon relying on a slingshot move to get by the Buch Motorsports entry, doing so through turns three and four while leaning on a thin and quickly fading cushion. Duncan's lap 31 move on Peck would come into play one more time before the conclusion of the 40-lapper, but not until the last 50 yards. All over Dietrich at the white flag, Duncan set up his winning move at the exit of turn two, powering down the backstretch before returning to the turn three cushion. Dietrich did his best to block at the exit of turn four, but Duncan found his way through, narrowly escaping contact with the Gettsyburg-native and the turn four wall. "I've never had that much patience in my life," an exhausted Duncan continued. "I knew I had a run off of two on Danny, and I knew Peck was making the bottom work in three but I was better on the top. I figured if I showed Danny my nose, he was going to block that line, so I said 'screw it' and hung it out on top. He raced me clean though coming off of the corner. I don't think you could have put a piece of paper between our wheels and my wheels and the wall." "He was coming," Danny Dietrich said, driver of the Gary Kauffman Racing No. 48. "I tried to lean on him a little bit to hopefully get him to check up so I could beat him back to the line. Cole is always good here. It's just a tough one to swallow after leading that many laps. Thank all of you fans for coming out. We love coming to Ohio. Ohio puts on the best racing, in my opinion." Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires will continue on Monday, June 14, at the home of "Orrville's Historic Oval" - Wayne County Speedway in Orrville, Ohio. Like the opening rounds, the Wayne County stop will award a $6,000 payday.

- Scelzi wins big at the Bradway Memorial!
(6/12/21 - Jim Allen), Placerville, CA ... Dominic Scelzi outran Shane Golobic to score a $7500 payday at the 30th Annual Dave Bradway Jr. Memorial King of the West Fujitsu Sprint Car Series 40-lap headliner at Placerville Speedway Saturday. Scelzi second series win of the season aboard the Scelzi Enterprises/Whipple Superchargers #41 came by leading green-to-checkered to maximize the lap money and additional sponsorship that was up for grabs. However, it wasn't a cake walk as Golobic applied pressure the entire distance with a different outcome in mind. On the initial start, Scelzi led a 24-car field into the first turn shadowed by Kyle Hirst, Willie Croft, Golobic and Justin Sanders. Golobic maneuvered his way into the runner-up spot on the fifth circuit and the highspeed game of cat and mouse was in high gear. The duo reached lap traffic two laps later and the moves became more frantic until the red flag appeared for an upside down Blake Carrick. He was unhurt. Once the race resume, it was more of the same. Scelzi made some stellar moves squeezing past slower cars to increase his advantage on the slick surface, only to have Golobic reel him in a lap or two later. It was that way the remaining distance until Scelzi scored his three-car length victory. "I knew he was there the entire time and that I had to hold my line." said Scelzi. "He got next to me a couple of times and I just held my breath and kept going." Golobic said he gave it his best effort aboard Matt Wood's Elk Grove Ford/NOS Energy sprint car. Hirst won a late race battle over Croft to fill out the podium in the Williams Motorsports Maxim. Series point leader Bud Kaeding was fifth. Kalib Henry, Ryan Robinson, Stephen Ingraham, semi-winner DJ Netto and 15-year-old Joel Myers Jr. rounded out the top ten. Jake Morgan, who started dead last in the 24-car field passed 10-cars to earn the hardcharger award and a $2000 bonus. Willie Croft's efforts in qualifying earned him the Carwash Mike Avilla fast time award and $1600. His 10.476 second was the best among the 31-car field.

- GET THE BROOM: Overton Completes Double Dream Sweep with Fourth Consecutive Victory at Eldora
Wells Motorsports & Co. bags $273,000 in total prize money over four-day stretch When the week began, the thought of one driver coming into Eldora Speedway and leaving with over a quarter million dollars was just a dream. But it's not a dream anymore. It's reality. Brandon Overton completed one of the greatest achievements in dirt track racing history Saturday night with his fourth consecutive Feature win in four days, sweeping both the 27th and 26th runnings of the Dirt Late Model Dream for an incredible $273,000 in total prize money. The Evans, GA-driver is now only the second driver in history to win back-to-back Dreams, joining eight-time event winner Scott Bloomquist with that achievement, which he conquered in 2017 and 2018. "To grow up as a kid, watching all these guys here at Eldora... this place is so special to the Dirt Late Model world and the racing world, period. To get it done, I don't know that I'll ever top this," Overton said. His Feature wins on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday night involved a pass for the lead before he cruised to the finish line unchallenged. But Saturday night was different - Overton lost the lead for 10 laps and was forced to take it back in his quest for the $126,000 winner's check. A second-place finish in Heat Race #1 to Kyle Larson earlier in the night seeded Overton seventh on the starting grid, which forced him to make his way up through the top-10 in the opening stages. He said that Heat Race loss was actually the kick in the pants that he needed. "Probably the best thing that happened to me was [Kyle] Larson beating me in that Heat Race," Overton said. "I wasn't pissed, but I was like 'alright, don't worry about it, just shake it off.' I told myself - he got me then, now I gotta go get him." When the green dropped, Overton went and got them all. Including the polesitter, Darrell Lanigan. Lanigan, the 2003 Dream winner from Union, KY, led the first 52 circuits before Overton hunted him down on a restart just before halfway and made the pass with a big move to Lanigan's outside in Turns 1-2. Back in command at the head of the field, it seemed like Overton would just cruise to another big payday. Enter Chris Madden. Madden, of Gray Court, SC, started his climb from 10th on the grid and gradually made his way through the field in the first half of the race. By Lap 70, he was staring down Overton's bumper. A caution four laps later put Madden right on Overton's outside for the restart, where he sailed around him with ease to grab the lead on Lap 75. At that point, Overton knew the battle was far from over. "We had that restart, and I spun my tires a little bit, and Madden got to running through that middle. He got me, but I knew if I could just keep pace with him and keep pressuring him... he'd have to chop me off or run me in the wall if he was going to get down," Overton said. "I knew I had a good car, but I've come here and watched these things... it ain't over until it's over. So, I knew all I had to do was just stay right there in contention and I'd have my shot again." Madden led the next six circuits before Overton challenged him back. The two traded the lead back-and-forth three laps in-a-row before Overton took it back permanently on Lap 86. "The rubber started coming, and I couldn't stay in the rubber," Madden said. "[Overton] was a lot better in that stage of the race, and I couldn't fend him off." From that point on, nobody was catching the Wells Motorsports #76. Overton found his groove right in the middle of the track and pulled away by over two seconds at the checkers to win his second career Eldora crown jewel. Madden came home second and bagged $20,000 in his best career finish at the Dream. Chris Ferguson charged from 13th to finish third - a new event-best for the driver out of Mt. Holly, NC. Jonathan Davenport, a prelim Feature winner on Wednesday night, crossed in fourth, ahead of Lanigan. Reflecting back on his incredible accomplishment, Overton was reminded of an earlier exchange with a former Dream winner, putting his winning attitude into full perspective. "I sat with Jimmy Owens earlier and I asked him how old he was when he won. He said, 'I think I was like 37.' It made me feel good. I was like, 'well dang, Jimmy Owens kicks everybody's ass and he's been kicking everybody's ass for a long time now.' So, it keeps me hungry and makes me want to keep digging."

- Duncan gets last corner, last lap pass for thrilling Fremont Speedweek win
FREMONT, Ohio - Cole Duncan pounced when he had to - the last corner of the last lap - to win night two of the Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek Presented by Hercules Tires at Fremont Speedway. Duncan squeezed between the front stretch wall and race-long leader Danny Dietrich to claim his fifth FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions Presented by Mobil 1 victory by a margin of just 0.248 seconds. Ironically Duncan's victory on Kistler Engines/Kistler Racing Products Night surpassed his dad Rodney Duncan's career wins with the series and it was his sixth career win at Fremont, also surpassing his dad's career win total at "The Track That Action Built." The 40-lap event featured intense battles throughout involving Dietrich, Justin Peck and Duncan which had the capacity crowd on their feet and roaring above the sound of the sprint cars. "I ain't never had that much patience in my life. I knew I had a run off of two on Danny and I seen Peck kept sneaking under me in three and four but I knew I was better on the top. I knew as soon as I showed Danny my nose he would block that line. And I said screw it and I hung it out on the top and he raced me clean off the corner…I don't even think we hit wheels. You couldn't have fit a piece of paper between his wheel and my wheel and my wheel and the wall. Man what a hell of a race. Thank you fans for coming out…a hell of a crowd. I've got family and friends here and Sheldon and Julie from Ohio Heating here…I hope we made them proud tonight. My family…my dad, Jamie, my wife, my mom missed this one…she had graduation parties or something but she won't miss the next one I bet. Pretty cool to pass my dad in All Star wins. I look up to my old man a lot and to get pass him in that win column…it's really really tough to come by these All Star wins right now. This is probably the best I've seen in All Star field of cars since my dad ran in the 90s and early 2000s," said Duncan beside his Ohio Heating/Helms Construction/Motor City Transport/Wolf Composites backed #22. "In the heat and the dash we were just kind of hanging on. I'll give it to my guys…they just went to work on it. Man they got the tune on it there. As soon as I got the wing back it took off. I knew we were going to be good but I raced hard with Peck there but I kind of slid across the track and I thought I may have sealed my tire up but after a few laps it worked itself back in. It was a technical track. You can't say it didn't put on a good race. We came from eighth and a last lap pass I don't think you can ask for a much better race than that," added Duncan. Dietrich, who hails from Gettysburg, PA., led laps 1-39.75, and second was very disappointing to say the least. "Hats off for all the fans for coming out. We came out here to Ohio because Ohio puts on the best racing in my mind. The fans are awesome and the tracks put on really good shows. I've been wanting to come here since I was here in 2014. Son-of-a-bitch we missed it by a quarter of a lap. He was coming, he was fast. I was trying to lean on him a little bit but not touch and try to get him to check up from the outside fence and beat him to the line but Cole is always good here. It's a tough one to swallow. I really want to win in Ohio bad. We're here for the whole week and we're excited and I think everyone knows we're here to play. We've had two really good nights. I love these bullrings…I love the slick," said Dietrich beside his Sweeney Chevy Buick GMC/Pace Performance/Weikerts Livestock/Sandoes Fruit Market backed machine. Monrovia, Indiana's Justin Peck really got his start in winged sprint car racing coming to Fremont Speedway and settled for third at the checkers. "I felt like every now and then I could get a run and keep up with those guys. But Cole by far had the best car. He showed me his nose a couple of times and it was all I could do to try and keep him behind me. I need to get more consistent getting off of four here and I felt that's where I would lose ground. All and all this Buch 13 has been pretty fast the past couple of nights so we will throw the wrenches on and try to get it a little bit faster and gets some wins this week," said Peck beside his Coastal Race Parts.com/TheTree Center/Buch Motorsports Store.com backed #13. Not to be outdone, the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprints also put on a fantastic show with veterans Paul Weaver and Alvin Roepke battling for the lead while dealing with lapped traffic. With three laps to go the duo made contact exciting turn four and then Weaver got caught up in a lapped car spinning. Roepke was able to nurse his car which had a mangled front wing the last three laps for his second win of the season and the 11th of his career at Fremont. "I think Paul was a little better than us…I got a little lucky there. But hey, I won at Fremont Speedway on a speedweek night. It doesn't get much better than that," said an elated Roepke beside his Fremont Auto Parts/NAPA/Darmofal Racing backed #99. Dietrich and Zeb Wise brought the field to green for the All Star 40 lap feature with Dietrich bolting into the lead over Wise, Stuart Brubaker and Peck. Dietrich built a sizeable lead by lap five over Wise and Peck while Brubaker, Duncan and Cory Eliason battled hard for fourth. Back to back cautions on lap eight kept the field close and when the green flew Dietrich pulled away again while Peck and Duncan put on a show battling for second. Following a caution on lap 12, Dietrich couldn't escape this time as both Peck and Duncan stayed close while Wise and Travis Philo battled for fourth. Heavy lapped traffic came into play at the half-way point as Dietrich continued to hold a narrow lead over Peck and Duncan. With seven laps to go Dietrich had been able to put a couple of lapped cars between himself and Duncan and Peck. But Duncan was able to use the high line exiting turn two and made up valuable real estate once around the lapped cars. As they took the white flag Duncan charged to Dietrich's outside but Dietrich moved up and blocked. Entering the final two turns Duncan sailed his car to the top and pinched himself between Dietrich and the wall and won the drag race to the checkers. In the 25 lap 305 A-main Chris Verda and Kody Brewer brought the field to green with Brewer gaining the slight advantage over Verda, Weaver and fifth starting Roepke. Weaver moved into second by lap four and quickly pressured Brewer, eventually grabbing the top spot on lap eight. A caution on lap 13 saw the running order Weaver, Brewer, Roepke, Verda, Brandon Moore, Matt Foos and Steve Rando. Weaver would keep Roepke at bay until they entered heavy lapped traffic with just six laps to go. Roepke closed quickly and as they came to the line to complete lap 22 the duo made contact with Roepke leading by a bumper. Entering turns one and two Roepke had just cleared a lapped car which spun right in front of Weaver sending him spinning. Roepke had a completely destroyed front wing that was rubbing on his right front tire. But, he was able to nurse it home for the win over Brewer, Verda, Foos and Rando.

- Racing vet Allen captures USRA Stock Car feature in Lucas Oil Speedway Midseason Championship headliner; Domer, Morton, Fennewald also win
WHEATLAND, MO. (June 12, 2021) - Scotty Allen is a race-track promoter, race-car builder and part-time race-car driver. Saturday night at Lucas Oil Speedway, Allen was dominant in the latter role. The Urbana resident, who wears various racing hats, led all 25 laps to capture the O'Reilly Auto Parts USRA Stock Cars feature, beating Burl Woods by about six car lengths at the finish. Other winners in the Big Adventure RV Weekly Racing Series Midseason Championships Presented by the Bolivar Herald-Free Press and KTTS were Chase Domer (Cedar Creek Beef Jerky USRA Modifieds), JC Morton (Ozark Golf Cars USRA B-Mods) and Johnny Fennewald (Missouri Metal Buildings ULMA Late Models). A total of 94 cars checked into the pits as the regular season reached the halfway point. Midseason champions crowned were David Hendrix (USRA Stock Cars), Dillon McCowan (USRA Modifieds), Kris Jackson (USRA B-Mods) and Cole Henson (ULMA Late Models). In the night's headliner, Allen was a clear winner as a season-high 24 USRA Stock Cars checked into the pits. He took home $750 for the triumph. Allen started up front and grabbed command from the start and opened a 1.3-second lead over Derek Brown by lap five, when the race's first caution flew. Woods moved past Brown and into second as the race returned to green before another caution slowed the field. Brown and Woods swapped second place two more times over the next five laps, with Allen leading by just over a second when the event's fourth caution came out on lap 12. Brown fell off the pace and dropped out with five laps to go, leaving Allen up front by 2.2 seconds over Woods. Jeff Dix was third and Dominic Thyfault, who started eighth, moved to fourth as action slowed for another caution on lap 20. Allen was up to the challenge on the restart and, as the race remained green over the final five laps, he went on to beat Woods by just under s second. Dixon wound up third with Thyfault fourth and Robert White fifth. For Allen, owner of Allen Autosports and promoter of Dallas County Speedway, it was his first appearance in a USRA Stock Car at Lucas Oil Speedway and just his second time in the car overall. "This was my son's car. He ran third in the points over at Dallas County last year," Allen said. "We've been working real hard on our B-Mod program and our Stock Car program. I had my B-Mod and ... there are some boys in the pits and I don't think I'm gonna sell 'em any more cars because I can't outrun any of them. "My son wanted to take a little break. I bought this and it's our second night out. Two heats, two wins. Two features, two wins. "Them old boys behind me, you get Burl and Derek Brown. Man, that's some meat. For us to come out and do that, I am very happy because those are some good race-car drivers. They say anybody can win from the pole, but I'm almost 50. I'll take it." Allen and Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Danny Lorton have partnered to put up a $250 bonus for any USRA Stock Car driver sweeping features at Dallas County Speedway and Lucas Oil Speedway on the same weekend. Dallas County Speedway was rained out on Friday. David Hendrix wound up 11th, but that was enough to nail down the midseason points championship. "We were running really good and we've got some sort of motor issues these last couple of weeks," Hendrix said. "We're gonna have to tear it apart again. We'll get it fixed. But I'm so glad to see that many cars here tonight. That was awesome. It's so much more fun when there are 24 cars here." Domer takes USRA Modified feature: Chase Domer of Nevada picked up his first Cedar Creek Beef Jerky USRA Modified feature win of the season, leading the final 19 of 20 laps and holding off Fulton's Ryan Middaugh. "Man, I'm just happy to get the win with my wife and kids here. We've been trying for a long time and it finally worked out tonight," Domer said. "We've been working hard. Thanks Dad and Grandpa's been working his butt off on these tires. It takes everybody." Dillon McCowan of Urbana had a solid and uneventful run, starting fourth and finishing fourth, to secure the midseason points title. "I want to start off by thanking Jason Hughes and all the guys at Hughes Race Cars. They helped us out with a motor. Last weekend we popped a motor," McCowan said. "If it wasn't for them, we wouldn't even be out here tonight. "It's been a good first half of the season and we're looking to put more together for the next half." Tracy Wolf and Domer started on the front row and Wolf lead the first lap before Domer pushed in front coming off turn four to complete lap two. Darron Fuqua moved into second and Middaugh into third on lap five, behind the pace-setting Domer, with the race's second caution coming out at that time. Those three separated themselves from the field by nearly two seconds as the race remained green the rest of the way. Domer worked the outside groove to hold off Middaugh over the final five laps. "I kept seeing Middaugh's nose down here and I started trying to change my entry up," Domer said. "I was kind of lucky to have some moisture to rip from off the top. It all worked out." Domer held on to win by a half-second over Middaugh with Fuqua third, McCowan fourth and Kyle Thompson in fifth. Morton cruises to USRA B-Mod triumph: JC Morton of Springfield took over the lead on lap six and went on to prevail in the Ozark Golf Cars USRA B-Mod feature, beating Mitchell Franklin of Camdenton by about eight car lengths. Morton came up a little short of the midseason championship, however, finishing unofficially four points behind Kris Jackson whose fifth-place run was good enough. Eric Turner led from the drop of the green, from his pole-position-starting spot with Morton and Franklin giving chase. A lap after a restart, Morton made a diving move to the inside of turn one on lap six to slip past Turner and into the lead. Two laps later, Turner's car lost power and several cars piled up in a chain-reaction in turns three and four. "There early, Eric was a little better than us and he kind of rotated around us the first five or six laps," Morton said. "On that restart, I tried to decide if I wanted the top or bottom. I decided to give the top a chance and it ended up working, getting me back to the lead." That left Morton, Franklin, Gillmore and JC Newell up front, with Jackson having worked his way from 12th to fifth. With the race settling into a caution-free rhythm the rest of the way, Morton held off a brief challenge from Franklin and pulled away to win by 1.48 seconds. Gillmore finished third with Kyle Slader fourth and Jackson fifth. "I seen Mitchell Franklin's nose down there a lap or two, and I figured it was time to protect and if somebody wanted to pass us, they could go up there and try," Morton said. Jackson found himself starting 12th in the feature after a third-place run in his heat race. "I wouldn't be here without all my sponsors," Jackson said. "I'm pretty happy to be here. We put ourselves behind the eight-ball in the heat race. I was probably driving too hard, but it was a good night. I passed a lot of cars." ULMA Late Models win to Fennewald: Johnny Fennewald of Appleton City spanked the field, beating second-place Larry Ferris by 8.4 seconds for the Missouri Metal Buildings ULMA Late Model feature win. Cole Henson of Russellville came from sixth to finish fourth and nailed down the midseason championship. Fennewald started on the pole and, without a caution to aid the chasers, gradually built up an insurmountable lead that was five seconds by lap 10. His final margin equated to roughly a half lap over Ferris, of Nevada. Todd McCoin wound up third. Fennewald said the track conditions were in his wheelhouse. "We finally had a good, smooth race track," Fennewald said. "It's kind of nice to have an awesome race track tonight and it was just a good night." Fennewald won for the first time in 2021 after capturing five features wins last season when he was second in the points to Henson. That snapped Fennewald's three-season reign as track champ. Henson is halfway toward his goal of repeating his championship after another solid run. He has two wins and six top-five finishes in six races. "The track definitely was different," Henson said. "The last couple of weeks had been hammer down, tonight it slicked off. The car was decent. We struggled toward the end, but we'll check it over and come back next week and get back after it."

- Beason Bests POWRi West at Creek County Speedway
Tulsa, Oklahoma (June 12, 2021) It took veteran driver Jonathan Beason less than five laps to drive from his eighth place starting position to the front of the pack in tonight's Lucas Oil POWRi West A-main event at Creek County Speedway. Making a three-wide pass on series veterans Eric Fenton and Michelle Decker to take the lead, once out front Beason set sail and picked up his first POWRi West win of the 2021 season. Behind him, Decker held off a late race challenge from defending series champion Andrew Felker to pick up her first podium finish of the 2021 season, and earn the Realty Connect second place bonus. Felker moved forward from his sixth starting spot to round out the podium, followed by Kyle Jones and Fenton. In Smith Titanium heat race action, Ryan Padgett was on his way to his first POWRi West heat race win when Beason made a last lap pass to steal it away. Beason's sixth to first run also earned him the Rod End Supply High Passing Points Award. Up next for the Lucas Oil POWRi West Midget League presented by Realty Connect will be a trip down the turnpike to I-44 Riverside Speedway on Saturday, June 26th. The last time the series was at I-44 it was Kyle Jones and the Trifecta Motorsports team picking up the win. It will be the series' fourth visit to I-44 this season.

- Bill Holmes and Cameron Tuttle Battle Back in to Victory Lane at Genesee
By Rich Vleck, (BATAVIA, NY), June 12, 2021- A perfect night for racing saw six different feature winners, all of whom had already secured a win at Genesee Speedway in 2021. Bill Holmes ran to his third win of the season in the Late Models. Holmes, of East Concord, started in third, but quickly took the lead on lap two from Paul Grigsby and held a steady advantage over the field. With eight laps left to go though, JJ Mazur ran the No. 8 right down and made a bid to the inside for the lead off of turn four. Mazur was unsuccessful in that attempt, and it proved costly as it gave Holmes the info he needed to hang on to the lead. "I was just kind of cruising up near the top until I saw JJ put his nose underneath me in turn four," noted Holmes in Victory Lane. "I figured I had to run the bottom." Once moving down to the inside line though, Holmes was not fully convinced he was in the right line as Mazur, along with Jeremy Wonderling, were chasing him down. "It was a good line but I was worried because it was so slow down there," he added. "JJ always runs us clean though and I appreciate that he did that here." The race started off with Paul Grigsby and Jimmy Johnson tangling on the front row. Grigsby would hold the lead for a lap before Holmes took over. Once Mazur took over second on lap 9 he was able to run the leader, but also fend off Jeremy Wonderling who had moved in to third on lap 13. Those three cars would battle to the end, with Mazur settling for the runner-up spot just ahead of the No. 3J. Grigsby would cross in fourth with Doug Ricotta completing the top five. Cameron Tuttle was licking his chops when moisture was laid down on the top groove just before the Sportsman Feature and the outside polesitter used the rim to ride to his second win of the year. Tuttle, of Wilson, led all 25-laps while point leader Phil Vigneri III gave him everything he could handle. "The car was amazing at the start, but then about 10 laps in my brake pedal went to the floor," Tuttle revealed after the 25-lap event. "I saw Phil (on the leaderboard) in second and figured he likes to run to the bottom but we stuck to the plan on the top and it worked out." In the mid-section of the race, Vigneri was working on a pass for the lead when the caution flag flew before the lap could be completed. Tuttle used that restart to get his No. 35T back out in front and pull away down the stretch for a gratifying victory. "We have had a lot of problems we have had to work through and put in some serious hours in the shop," said Tuttle. "We had to change the transmission again today for the sixth time." As Tuttle held off Vigneri for the win, a fierce battle for third was up for grabs down the stretch with Noah Walker rallying from a spin on lap four to run back up to a podium finish. Walker, the winner a week ago, moved by Dave Conant in the final three laps for the position. Brandon Michaud put a solid run together to round out the top five. Bill Taylor won his third Street Stock Feature of the season, but it was far from easy. Taylor, of Arcade, took the lead from Shawn Hazlett on lap six but on a restart two laps later his No. 1 shut off exiting turn two and stacked up the pack, but his car fired back up and allowed him to hold on to the lead. With four laps remaining though, Tommy Kemp made a move underneath Taylor for the lead at the line to complete lap 17. Taylor was persistant though, staying true to the top line and using his momentum to run back in to the lead. Kemp made a late bid on the bottom lane but had nothing for Taylor. It was an extremely gratifying win for Taylor as he had to fix many broken parts of his car this week after performing maintenance. Kemp would settle for second a week after scoring the win while Brandon Sherwood placed in third. John Zimmerman and Dan Schulz rounded out the top five. The Mini Stock Feature saw five lead changes with a tight pack of competitors, with the final exchange for the top spot coming on lap 13 when Dante Mancuso drove underneath Cole Susice for the lead and then scooted away for his fourth win of the season. Mancuso, of Batavia, was in third on a lap 12 restart but when a few cars bounced off one another he drove up to second around Andy Schumaker to go after the leader. Susice would hold off Schumaker for second while Eric Weis ran to fourth as a substitute driver, just ahead of point leader Brad Whiteside. Tyler Guzzardi captured his second Novice Sportsman Feature win of the year, leading wire-to-wire in the 15-lap event. Guzzardi utilized the top line throughout while holding off point leader Jake Bansmer, who kept peaking his nose down on the bottom line. In the closing laps, Guzzardi began to strengthen his distance over the No. 71 to win by 4 car lengths. Andrew Joy ran a solid third place to the finish. The Bandit Feature saw normalcy flip upside down on the opening lap as point leader Alexis Traxler broke and opened up the door for Chad Johnson to take command and never look back. Johnson, of Castile, dominated throughout the 10-lap event to score his second win in just his fifth career start. Cole Harding finished second in his first event while Morgan Coniber completed the podium. Racing action returns rapidly with the next event this Thursday, June 17th for a special 7:00 p.m. start time. NAPA Auto Parts and Liquitube will present a "Light up the Night for Kenzie" Memorial race.

- Clouser Sweeps POWRi WAR Weekend with Feature Win at Spoon River Speedway
Belleville, IL. (06/12/2021) Battling on the High-Banks of Spoon River Speedway for the first time in two racing seasons, the Lucas Oil POWRi Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League would put on a display of driving exhilaration as Mario Clouser would grab the coveted feature victory after a hard-fought clash over the field, earning the feature win at Spoon River Speedway to cap off the Illinois race weekend. Early racing excitement with the POWRi WAR Sprint League at Spoon River Speedway would find Mario Clouser and Xavier Doney each wheel their way to heat race victories with Garrett Aitken claiming the night's high-point qualifier award and earning a pole-starting spot in the feature event. With Aitken leading the field to the initial green-flag start and Clouser lining up on the outside an epic battle of an open-wheel adrenaline rush would break out as the green flag was waved. Garrett Aitken would use the pole-starting spot to his advantage taking over the lead in the opening stages, leading the first several revolutions around the fast high-banked racing surface. With lap traffic coming into play, Mario Clouser would strike, pacing the leading Aitken for multiple laps as Clouser would use a slide-job on the exit of four to pass for the lead. Never giving up the front-running position Clouser would earn his fourth feature win of the season with POWRi WAR. Staying close to the lead late, Garrett Aitken would finish in a hard-fought runner-up position as Mitch Wissmiller finished a close third. Rookie of the Year leader within POWRi WAR Xavier Doney would show speed all event, driving to finish a solid fourth with Riley Kreisel rounding out the top-five finishers for the Lucas Oil POWRi Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League at Charleston Speedway.
