- Axsom picks up first POWRi National Midget Series win; Smith, Timms also prevail at Lucas Oil Speedway's Open Wheel Showdown
Emeron Axsom picked up his first POWRi National Midget League win Saturday night as the 10th annual Impact Signs, Awnings and Wraps Open Wheel Showdown was held at Lucas Oil Speedway. (GS Stanek Racing Photography) WHEATLAND, MO. (April 24, 2021) - Emerson Axsom picked up his first POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League victory Saturday night, taking the 30-lap feature during the 10th annual Impact Signs, Awning and Wraps Open Wheel Showdown at Lucas Oil Speedway. Axsom, a 16-year-old from Franklin, Indiana, passed Brenham Crouch with six laps remaining and went on to prevail over Crouch by 2.5 seconds. Other feature winners on the program included Wesley Smith (POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprints) and Ryan Timms (ASCS Warrior Region/Sooner Region Sprints). Axsom started the feature in the sixth position and worked his way into the top three by lap 16, when the race took a sudden turn. Daison Pursley started on the inside of row two and took over the lead on the second lap. The 16-year-old Oklahoma native cruised from there, opening a 2.4-second lead over Crouch, when disaster struck on lap 16 as Pursley hit the wall in turn four. Bringing out the race's second caution, Crouch inherited the lead with Axsom second and Bryan Wiedeman third. Axsom battled Crouch until lap 24 and made the decisive pass, on the inside coming off turn four of the 30-lapper. "We've been close. We were real fast," Axsom said. "Every time we've ran this year we've had a shot to win. I was just driving it as hard as I could. We weren't that great in the heat. We just made the right changes and obviously it paid off. "There's tons of cars that can win every night. You just put yourself in the right spot, it helps a lot." Smith eanrs second POWRi WAR Sprints win: Wesley Smith of Nixa took over the lead with 10 laps remaining and went on to earn his second POWRi War Sprint feature win of the season, beating Quinton Benson to the checkers. "Everybody says before you move up, you have to be the best where you're at and I think that's what we're trying to do," Smith said. after his sixth career POWRi Sprint victory and first at Lucas Oil Speedway. "I think we're on our way and ready to move onto bigger and better things and it starts here with the WAR Series at Lucas Oil Speedway." Xavier Doney took the lead at the drop of the green from his outside front-row staring position with pole-starting Smith and Colten Cottle trading second and third over the first 15 laps. That's when Dustin Clark slipped his car in turn two to bring the race to a halt. By that point, Mario Clouser had advanced into third behind Doney and Smith with Cottle falling back to fourth with 10 to go. Cottle spun on the restart, taking himself out of contention for the win. Then, after another caution before a green-flag lap could be completed, Doney took a spin in turn two to eliminate himself from a possible first career win. "Hats off to Xavier Doney. I hated to see him lose like that. He was definitely one of the cars to beat," Smith said. "I'm not saying we didn't have anything for him, but ... I think me and him ... it was going to be a helluva show." "We worked for this one. I feel bad for Doney," Smith said. "I think we would have had a great race in the end with him as well as Clouser and Benson coming up on the bottom. We had a fast car all night, I can't thank this team enough." That elevated Smith to the top spot. Benson moved past Clouser by lap 20 and was 2.2 seconds behind Smith when another caution flew on lap 22. Smith held on for the win, crossing the line 3.1 seconds in front of Benson with Clouser third and Joe B. Miller fourth after starting back in 17th. Timms hangs on for ASCS triumph: Ryan Timms took over the lead on lap seven and then held off Ayrton Gennetten over the final few laps of the ASCS Warrior Region/Sooner Region main event. The 14-year-old Timms, of Oklahoma City, picked up his second career win but it wasn't easy as Timms survived contact with a lapped car and Gennetten's final-lap charge, including a sliding try to get past the winner on the final turn. Timms wound up clipping the wall after the checker flews. In victory lane, he joked "that wasn't ideal, but I guess it was better than during the race." Kyle Bellm of Nixa led the first seven laps beore Timms sailed past on lap seven. A caution on lap 10 slowed the field and during the caution, Bellm had to pit for mechanical issues, ending his night. Gennetten moved into second and trailed Timms by one second as a lap-14 caution came out. Timms and Gennetten were weaving thorugh lapped traffic when, on lap 18, the leader made contact with Jonathan Cornell while trying to lap him and Cornell's car flipped to bring out a red flag. "It was just wrong place, wrong time for both of us," Timms said. "I'm lucky that nothing broke." Timms withstood Gennetton's charge from there as the final seven laps remained green. He captured the victory by one second with Brandon Anderson finished third with Sean McClelland fourth and Jeremy Campbell fifth.

- Wesley Smith Shines in Open Wheel Showdown at Lucas Oil Speedway with POWRi WAR.
Belleville, IL. (04/24/2021) The Diamond of the Dirt Tracks would not disappoint Saturday Nights as the Lucas Oil POWRi Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League would visit Lucas Oil Speedway for the Tenth Annual Open Wheel Showdown presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps. Great battles on the premier racing surface all evening would see Wesley Smith claim the feature victory after the twenty-five-lap racing battle. With an outstanding field of thirty-five POWRi WAR sprinters flocking to Wheatland Missouri, four heat races were required with passing points of the up-most importance to help set the field for the main event. Heat race winners included Wesley Smith, Mario Clouser, Mitchell Moore, and Xavier Doney. After the Top-16 in heat-race passing-points were locked into the A-Feature, the rest of the competitors would try to race their way into the A-Main, with Joe B. Miller grabbing the Semi-Feature victory. High-Point Qualifier Wesley Smith and fellow heat race winner Xavier Doney would make up the front-row with Doney riding the high-side into the top spot on the initial green-flag start, separating himself from the talented twenty-three other POWRi WAR feature competitors. As the feature laps ticked away Xavier Doney would lead the pack with Smith and Colten Cottle battling it out for the second spot along with Mario Clouser close behind and Mitchell Davis keeping pace with the top-four drivers. Lap traffic would come into play for the front-running rookie Doney as the second-place Smith would close the gap on the leader with ten laps remaining when the caution flag would fly. After a late-race restart bunched the field back together the leader Xavier Doney would run a little too high in turns one and two, spinning the car and bringing out another caution. An extremely fast Wesley Smith would benefit, inheriting the lead with less than ten laps remaining. Smith would show the way in the final closing laps, holding off a great charge by runner-up finisher Quinton Benson. Mario Clouser and the hard-charging Joe B. Miller would race hard to the line with Clouser edging Miller for third as Wyatt Burks rounded out the features top-five finishers. "We worked for this one, I feel bad for Doney, I think we would have had a great race in the end with him as well as Clouser and Benson coming up on the bottom," exclaimed Smith in a celebratory victory lane. "We had a fast car all night, I can't thank this team enough" added Wesley.

Wheatland, MO. (04/24/2020) Emerson Axsom, the sixteen-year-old out of Franklin, Indiana gained the lead late in the 30-lap main event and claimed his first career Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League Victory. With 29 entries signed-in for the co-sanctioned show between the POWRi National and POWRi west, the field was split into four heats won by Tyler Thomas, Ethan Mitchell, Cannon McIntosh, and Brenham Crouch. Joe B Miller picked up the win in the Super Clean B-Main. The 30-lap POWRi National & West Midgets main event lined up with Crouch and Thomas on the front row. At the drop of the green flag, Crouch took off to an early lead and his teammates followed him. Teammate Daison Purlsey challenged Crouch and took over the lead with 3 laps in the book. Crouch followed in second, Bryant Wiedeman in third and Axsom in fourth. After a yellow on the track for Branigan Roark, the field bunched back up. Fifteen laps in and fifteen to go, the leader, Pursley brought out the red flag and found himself upside down in turn four. Crouch presumed the lead when the field went back green. Axsom, Cannon McIntosh, Karter Sarff, and Jake Neuman follow. Axsom ran down Crouch and patiently waited to take the lead with only eight laps left. Axsom threw a slide job on Crouch in turn 3 but Crouch crossed back over to keep the lead. Axsom regrouped and gave it another shot a lap later and conquered the slide job. Axsom led the field with six laps to go. Emerson Axsom gapped the field and went on to win his first career POWRi National Midget League Victory by 2.518 seconds. Brenham Couch finished second, teammate to Crouch, Wideman finished third. Cannon McIntosh brought home fourth and Brent Crews finished in the fifth position. "We've been close, and we are real fast, everytime we have ran this year we've had a shot to win. I just drove it as hard as I could, I wasn't too good in the heat so we just made the right changes and it paid off." Emerson Axsom after his win. The Lucas Oil POWRI National & West Midget League will be back in action tomorrow, Sunday April 25th at Grain Valley MO.

BRISTOL, TN - Stewart Friesen added to his list of Hall of Fame-worthy accomplishments Friday night at Bristol Motor Speedway, winning the Super DIRTcar Series' debut at "The Last Great Colosseum." He did so in a gladiator fashion worthy of the iconic sword he was awarded after piloting his Halmar Racing #44 chariot from eighth to the lead in the 40-lap World of Outlaws Bristol Throwdown Feature. "This is a huge stage to get a win on in our Northeast Modifieds and I appreciate everyone inviting us here," Friesen said. "Our cars put on excellent racing like they do at Charlotte and Volusia. It was really cool for us and to get the first win here is really special." Friesen was fastest overall in Time Trials and took the Billy Whittaker Cars Fast-Time Award by running a 16.574 sec. lap. That time was nearly a second faster than the Quick Time set during Thursday's practice session. He then won his Heat Race, but drew the eight in the redraw - a fate of luck he initially thought killed his chance at a win. From there, he passed seven cars on his way to claim his now coveted World of Outlaws Bristol Showdown sword. "I found the top side pretty early," Friesen noted. "I thought pulling eighth in the redraw was going to be the kiss of death with the way the Heat Races went. The track crew did a great job working the outside. I started thinking about the top when Tyler Courtney in the Sprint Car's Last Chance Showdown was on the outside making some hay. I knew it was there but it just needed to be cleaned up. We raced all around the track for the first few laps and when my tires came in, away we went." Bristol Motor Speedway can be intimidating to some drivers, but Friesen has been circulating the Bristol highbanks more than anyone else over the last month. He raced in both the NASCAR Cup Series race on dirt as well as the Camping World Truck Series race. For the Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON native, the initial shock and awe has worn down and he could approach the race like any other. "The NASCAR experience on the dirt here helped," Friesen noted. "Not with the setups though. I got a lot of help from some of the late model guys. That paid off. We did a lot of homework." With the fast-time award, a Heat Race win, and a racy Feature victory, Friesen looks tough to beat at Bristol. Mike Mahaney, from King Ferry, NY, started the race in the top spot after redrawing first place and collecting a special bonus from SRI Performance. He built a huge lead in the early going before cautions allowed Friesen a few opportunities to pass cars and get up to the rear bumper of the #35. After the #44 went by him, Mahaney held tight to second place until Keith Flach slowed in front of the leaders on the backstretch and bottled Mahaney up. Three cars got around him but he was able to hold on for fifth after dominating the early stages. Tyler Dippel picked up a career-best second-place finish with the Super DIRTcar Series. His #1D Teo Pro Car stayed up front all race after rolling off from third. At the initial start of the 40-lap Feature, Dippel won the drag race with defending Series champion Mat Williamson, from St. Catharines, ON to grab second. After that, the only car to pass him was Friesen on his way to the win. "Once Friesen went around and showed us the top would work I started searching around," said runner-up Dippel. "The crazy part to me was working through the dirty air. When you got up on someone close you had to have the left or right front sticking out to get the nose in the air. I've never felt that in a dirt car besides the Syracuse Mile. "The speed sensation is unbelievable. The G-forces really suck you down into the seat. It was fun. I had a blast out there." The final podium step was filled by Mat Williamson, driver of the #88 Buzz Chew Racing machine. Williamson and his team worked hard to squeeze a few more tenths of a second out of his Bicknell Racing chassis and Billy the Kid engine. We spent last night testing some things and trying to get better but tonight is the best we've gotten it," Williamson said. "You're going so fast I didn't expect the race track to race as well as it did. When Friesen went around me on the top I had fully expected there to be no one up there." While some drivers wanted to draw comparisons, like Lebanon Valley Speedway in respect to its speed or Cornwall Motor Speedway in respect to its banking, it's clear Bristol is unlike any other track. "It's a whole different ball game down here," Williamson noted. "It was a good thing that no one had a hometrack advantage because it had us all figure it out together." Williamson has won some huge races in front of some big crowds but Bristol is incomparable. "I'm happy and I hope it was a good show for the fans," he said. "It's really cool for the modifieds to get an opportunity like this. The Feature was hotly contested from the top to the bottom of the field. Erick Rudolph, from Ransomville, NY, took his #25R up 15 positions to claim the night's hard charger award. He finished in the eighth position after 40 laps and 20 miles of racing. The legendary "Franklyn Flyer" Billy Decker in the #91 Gypsum Racing Big Block had a difficult start to the night as he spun on the first lap of his Heat Race and was collected by Chad Phelps in the #X car. He was forced to take provisional but passed 15 cars himself to finish twelfth. Tim Sears Jr., in the #83X, has backed up his great finish at Can-Am Speedway with a fourth-place finish on the Bristol high banks. It's going to get tough for Sears to sneak up on the Series stars because now they know that yellow #83X is coming for the front. Mike Mahaney, from King Ferry, NY, started the race in the top spot after redrawing first place and collecting a special bonus from SRI Performance. He built a huge lead in the early going before cautions allowed Friesen a few opportunities to pass cars and get up to the rear bumper of the #35. After the #44 went by him, Mahaney held tight to second place until Keith Flach slowed in front of the leaders on the backstretch and bottled Mahaney up. Three cars got around him but he was able to hold on for fifth. Race fans can catch the Super DIRTcar Series again tomorrow at the World of Outlaws Bristol Throwdown finale. It's a 40-lap, $10,000-to-win Feature, which also pays $1,000-to-start. Get your tickets at BristolMotorSpeedway.com or tune in live on DIRTVision.

- LEARY LEADS FORD TO FIRST USAC SPRINT WIN IN A DECADE AT BAPS MATINEE
Eventual winner C.J. Leary (#77m) and Justin Grant (#4) battle for the lead during Saturday's USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car feature at BAPS Motor Speedway. (Lee Greenawalt Photo) York Haven, Pennsylvania (April 24, 2021)………C.J. Leary withstood a bevy of bombs fired at him from both Justin Grant and Chris Windom down the stretch to score his first victory of the 2021 USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car season during a rare matinee performance on Saturday for the series at BAPS Motor Speedway in York Haven, Pa., round three of Keystone Invasion. In the process, Leary (Greenfield, Ind.) also provided the first victory by a Ford engine with the series since Bobby East's triumph at Ohio's Toledo Speedway in July of 2011. Furthermore, Leary's win gave car owner Bill Michael his first career USAC National Sprint Car victory. Michael, of Chino Valley, Ariz., took his team on the road with the USAC National series for the first time this year after previously winning a record 39 USAC Southwest Sprint Car features, most notably with driver R.J. Johnson, while earning an unprecedented four consecutive USAC Southwest Sprint Car championships between 2013-16. "It's huge for Bill and me," Leary exclaimed. "With a new team, you obviously want to win right out of the box, but he let me build whatever I wanted. He said you can build whatever chassis and whatever shocks you want, but the only thing he made sure of was that we were going to run a Ford. The objective is to win a championship and he wanted to give it his best shot. Bill Michael, he's a helluva guy." Leary and Michael's first racing foray together came in March of 2020, when the pair swept both nights of USAC CRA/Southwest competition at Canyon Speedway Park in Peoria, Ariz., providing them the confidence right off the bat that they truly had something there that could become truly special on the racetrack. Now, with a National win in their back pockets, the duo feels that, as the lone rangers in the Ford camp, if they were to consistently find that sweet spot as the season moves along, they'd have a leg-up on the rest of the field in their Michael Motorsports/Kodiak Products - Gray Auto - Valvoline/DRC/Cressman Ford. The car, driver and engine were inserted into a tricky test during the afternoon affair, which had been pushed forward by four hours due to a high probability of inclement weather in the forecast for later that night during the originally scheduled race time. With track position a cornerstone on this particular day, outside front row starter Leary took control of the 30-lap race from the get-go, driving by pole sitter Matt Westfall in the first two corners while Chase Stockon, then a few laps later, Justin Grant, slotted into second before glancing off the turn two guardrail on a slicked off, but racy surface around the 4/10-mile dirt oval. Leary was gone at that point, snipping his way through traffic with a full-straightaway lead in hand by lap 12. Attempting to maneuver through a clogged artery of the racetrack, Leary dissected his way high and low around the competition, and at times, teetering over the cushion, and brushing Hoosier rubber with the likes of Thomas Meseraull, which momentarily put Leary precariously sideways in turn three at the midway point. With Grant cutting Leary's lead in half, a yellow for debris in turn two reset the deck and cleared the traffic from Leary's path. Yet, as it turned out, traffic was arguably a safer position to reside in rather than being in the role of "sitting duck" as the leader on a restart. There, Grant shot his shot with a slider in turn one, going all the way past Leary, and over the turn two cushion, which opened the door for both Robert Ballou and Windom to skate by, though Windom quickly snared second from Ballou with a slide job of his own in turn three moments later. All that was a major help for Leary who raced away from the skirmish behind him with a clear view ahead. "After Justin bombed me getting into one, I thought he was going to get upside down and collect me and whoever else was behind me," Leary said. "I turned, crossed him over, and got back out in clear air, and I felt we had the car to beat on an open track. Even in lapped traffic, I felt pretty solid." However, the "great escape" that netted Leary a massive 5.467 sec. advantage was short lived when, on lap 21, Ricky Lewis (14th) and Brandon Mattox (15th) collided in turn one, flipping both over. Joey Biasi (18th) also got caught up in the melee, spinning to a stop. All drivers involved were uninjured. During the red flag period, Leary received a message from his dear old dad, Chuck Leary, a winner himself in the USAC Silver Crown series who's been in a similar position a time or two behind the wheel and was there on this occasion to lend a bit of a "heads up." "After the red came out, my dad ran all the way around the racetrack to tell me to be prepared on the restart for another bomb. He told me to think about protecting and sliding yourself. I contemplated for three or four minutes while riding around whether or not I should slide myself or keep doing what I was doing. As it turned out, I slid myself and almost gave it away." Windom, from the second position, used a massive run off turn two to set himself up for a slider attempt on Leary in turn three. Windom cleared Leary but snagged the cushion. Leary turned down underneath Windom and the two banged wheels, with Leary getting himself back into the lead while Windom fell to third and Grant ducked under to regain second. "Chris actually made a mistake getting into three and four, and over rotated, and I think he thought I was going to be coming around the outside of him," Leary explained. "He cleared me by a mile, but we made contact and I just drove off from there, and in clear air, our car was so good." Not close enough to fire any more ammo nor close enough to levy a credible challenge following that juncture, Grant and Windom could only look in the distance as Leary pulled away for a 2.651 sec. victory over Grant, Windom, KSE Racing Products / Irvin King Hard Charger Alex Bright (from 16th) and point leader Brady Bacon, who rounded out the top-five. The win was the first of Leary's career with USAC in the state of Pennsylvania in what was his ninth trip to compete in the Keystone State. It was also the 2019 series champion's 12th overall win with the series, tying him with Eric Gordon for 46th on the all-time list. Grant (Ione, Calif.) finished 2nd in his TOPP Motorsports/NOS Energy Drink - MPV Express - TOPP Industries/Maxim/Kistler Chevy, by far his best run of the week in Pennsylvania following 13th and 9th place finishes over the past two nights at Grandview and Big Diamond, respectively. Same for Windom (Canton, Ill.) who equaled his best finish of the season (3rd) aboard his Hayward Motorsports/NOS Energy Drink - B & H Contractors - AMSOIL/DRC/Claxton Mopar just one night after his 21-race streak of top-ten finishes with the series came to a close. Steven Drevicki (Reading, Pa.) earned his first career fast qualifying time with the series, and also became the third consecutive Pennsylvanian to record fast time during Fatheadz Qualifying this week following Briggs Danner (Allentown, Pa.) at Grandview, and Timmy Buckwalter (Douglassville, Pa.) at Big Diamond. Drevicki, the three-time USAC East Coast Sprint Car champion, finished a career-best 7th in the feature. ====================== USAC AMSOIL SPRINT CAR NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP RACE RESULTS: April 24, 2021 - BAPS Motor Speedway - York Haven, Pennsylvania - 4/10-Mile Dirt Track - Keystone Invasion FATHEADZ EYEWEAR QUALIFYING: 1.
