- Continued Tire Shortages Force Cancellation of FASTRAK World Championship at Virginia Motor Speedway
Jamaica, Virginia - With Hoosier's continued tire shortages and after exhausting all avenues available to get enough FT200 and FT400 tires to cover the number of cars expected to compete in the 2021 FASTRAK World Championship two-day event, officials at Virginia Motor Speedway and FASTRAK Racing have made the difficult decision to cancel the event for 2021. "I do appreciate VMS working with us during the struggle with tires. The World Championship is our biggest profit event of the entire season, and as badly as we hate to cancel it, what choice do we really have? Unfortunately, FT90's are not scheduled to be produced until October, so that doesn't do us much good for a World Championship this year. That being the case, we decided the thing to do is keep the tires they were making for us in inventory so they could be cured well and have tires to start next season with," commented FASTRAK Owner/Founder Stan Lester. Lester added, "I know people will suggest that we go to open tire. Well, that's a little hard to do since there is no compatible tire to the FT200, plus making every competitor have every tire compound of every crate spec tire would be a ridiculous amount of money and not all crate teams can afford that. It's an impossible situation to be in, but we don't manufacture tires, so it's completely out of our hands. The bottom line is this. If there are not enough tires in stock for every team to have three sets of tires, then we have to wait on supply and let it catch up." The decision to cancel this year's event is not an emotional decision; it has been based on actual facts that are business-related and that every track, Series, and sanction, asphalt and dirt, has been dealing with all year. Based on Hoosier's tire production schedule, the time of year they will be released, and the other events already scheduled late in the year, the event just did not have a place to go. "This decision did not come lightly. The track and the Series have worked for over a month now to see if we could rectify the tire issue in advance of the World Championship weekend. We have been in constant contact with Hoosier about the availability of the FASTRAK FT200 and FT400 tires and have not come up with enough tires for every competitor to have the same chance at getting tires. The FASTRAK World Championship has been our season-ending crown jewel for seven years, and it has been gaining the momentum in fan and competitor support that we have been working towards since the first World Championship at our speedway," commented Virginia Motor Speedway owner Bill Sawyer. All efforts now will be on the 2022 FASTRAK World Championship and more. Some exciting news will be released in the coming weeks, including new tracks, new classes, new sponsors, and, more importantly, doubling the amount to win for the 2022 World Championship.

- Sobotka Sizzles in the Drizzle to Win Vermont 200 at Devil's Bowl Speedway - Brewerton champion tops field of 62 cars to earn $12,942
WEST HAVEN, Vt. - Zach Sobotka was already having a dream weekend when he arrived at Devil's Bowl Speedway on the morning of Sunday, September 5, and he headed home with an even bigger highlight and a huge paycheck. The 26-year-old opened his Labor Day holiday weekend by winning at Brewerton (N.Y.) Speedway and clinching that track's Sportsman Modified championship on Friday night, and he wrapped it up by capturing the Fabian Earth Moving Vermont 200 and pocketing $12,942 in winnings on Sunday. The day did not start well for the Parish, N.Y., driver, who turned in only the 27th-fastest lap on a dry-slick track in time trial qualifying. He lined up seventh in his heat race and missed a transfer finishing position, having to go through the consolation round, just before a rain delay interrupted the program. The full-blown rain showers stopped, but a fine mist fell sporadically for the rest of the event, changing the track conditions dramatically. Sobotka started the 200-lap main event 23rd on the 36-car grid, and he took his time weaving his way through the field as Dylan Zacharias and then Adam Pierson took turns in the lead. Mother Nature caused a delay again at lap 80, with bouts of mist turning dust from the racing surface into tiny bits of sticky, vision-hampering mud; the drivers were brought to pit road to clean their helmet visors and apply new tearoffs, returning to race another 21 circuits before a predetermined competition break at lap 101. Demetrios Drellos took the lead from Pierson at the restart and built a large lead before the halfway break, but a fuel leak from a vent tube on the Drellos car was seen during green-flag racing when the race resumed. The caution flag was flown at lap 103 and officials pulled the car aside to inspect it, but they found no leak while the car was not in motion. Drellos was given the option to pit and fix the leak or risk being black-flagged if the leak reappeared under racing conditions; he chose to stay on the track as the leader, but the leak returned and Drellos was sent to pit road under green at lap 108. Sobotka told the crowd in a pit road interview during the break that his car was handling perfectly, and he restarted in seventh place. He took the lead from weekly Devil's Bowl competitor Tim LaDuc at lap 126 and then set a blistering pace after the 12th and final restart at lap 138. The long, 62-lap green-flag run to end the race was a memorable one; Sobotka threaded his way through lapped traffic as Marc Johnson began chasing him down. Sobotka managed the traffic well, but a side-by-side battle for 12th-place between Frank Hoard III and Michael Wagner-Fitzgerald running in front of him slowed his pace in the final 15 laps, allowing Johnson to close dramatically. Guilderland, N.Y., racer Johnson made two very strong bids for the lead and pulled even with Sobotka twice in the final frames, but Sobotka was able to fend him off for the landmark victory. Sobotka - who raced for the second half of the event with blurred vision after getting dirt in his eyes - claimed the $10,000 winner's purse, $2,892 in lap leader bonuses, and the $50 Hard Charger Award for a total take of $12,942. Johnson's runner-up finish was worth $4,000, and Orwell, Vt., veteran LaDuc's third-place effort - combined with lap leader money - netted him $3,075. Pierson finished fourth and took home $3,617 after lap money, and Tim Hartman Jr. rounded out the top five for $1,100. L.J. Lombardo was sixth ahead of Jack Lehner, Justin Stone, Ben Bushaw, and Tyler Corcoran. Qualifying heats were won by Jimmy Ryan, Bobby Hackel, Pierson, Johnny Bruno, Johnson, and Corcoran. Sobotka and Bushaw split the consi victories, and last-chance B-Mains were won by Josh Masterson and Travis Bruno. Sixty-two drivers attempted to qualify for the race, and Sobotka became the first driver in the event's four-year history to win as a "true" Sportsman racer, without having ties to Big Block or Small Block Modified competition; previous winners were Brett Hearn, Rocky Warner, and Drellos. The Sprint Cars of New England tour supported the event with a fast-paced 25-lap feature to wrap up its three-race Devil's Bowl track championship chase. North Granby, Conn.'s Scott Holcomb arrived at Devil's Bowl Speedway so late that he missed his qualifying heat race, but with no preparation he needed only five laps to drive from last place on the grid to get to second. A wild initial start saw Holcomb blast three-wide on the outside lane past four cars. He quickly made it up to the runner-up position and when leader Adam Pierson's car shut down on lap 7, Holcomb inherited the top spot and sailed off with the win; he also won on Vermont 200 Weekend in 2020. Chris Donnelly finished second, but he blew his engine in the final corner of the race and coasted across the line. Former Sportsman Modified competitor Wayne Stearns was ultra-competitive all day in his first Sprint Car start on the Devil's Bowl half-mile, finishing third. Barnstead, N.H.'s Clay Dow finished fourth to clinch the Devil's Bowl track title by just four points over Donnelly, 142-138. Floyd Billington finished fifth in the race. Heats were won by Donnelly and Jake Williams; Caleb Lamson walked away unhurt from a vicious hit into the frontstretch wall and subsequent rollover in qualifying. The Friend Construction 500cc Mini Sprint division ran a two-day, three-round "segment" format during the weekend, with the second and third 10-lap legs run on Sunday. Orwell, Vt.'s Ray Hanson picked up segment finishes of third and first on Sunday, and when combined with his third-place showing on Saturday, his low total score of 7 points (3+3+1=7) gave him the overall victory - his 10th of the season. Hanson used a bone-stock, spare engine borrowed from overall runner-up John Smith for the win. Smith won the opening segment on Saturday and racked up a sixth and a second on Sunday to earn a total score of 9 points. Kaidin White was fifth, first, and fifth in the segments to tally 11 points and take third place overall. Roger LaDuc (13 pts.) and Scott Bachand (17 pts.) completed the overall top five. Devil's Bowl Speedway is back in action on Saturday, September 11, at an earlier start time of 6:00 p.m., with the return of Heritage Family Credit Union "Member Night" and free general admission for all HFCU members who present a valid HFCU credit or debit card, checkbook, or bank statement.

- JUSTIN SANDERS SCORES KING OF THE WEST "FASTEST FOUR DAYS IN MOTORSPORTS" OPENER AT MERCED
(8/26/21 - Jim Allen) Merced, CA ... Justin Sanders took advantage of some well-timed caution periods to outrun Dominic Scelzi and score Thursday night's Fastest Four Days in Motorsports opener for the NARC King of the West Fujitsu sprint cars at Merced Speedway. Although the stat sheet will show that Sanders led all 30-laps aboard Kevin Koslowski's Works Unlimited #57, wrenched by Paul Silva, Sanders had to battle his way through slower cars and an ever pressing Scelzi to score the single-car length victory. Sanders won the Sunnyvalley Bacon dash and started on pole. He had to fend off 15-year old Corey Day for the first 10 laps, until the Scelzi assumed the runner-up spot in the second corner on lap 12. Scelzi took the lead a lap later, but the field reverted back a lap when the caution came out for fuel leak fire on Jessie Attard's car. When racing resumed, Scelzi continued to shadow the leaders every move and was challenging for the point when the caution appeared once again on the 18th circuit. This was a recurring theme throughout this feature event. The race came to a abrupt halt on the 23rd circuit when Day tangled with a slower car while running fourth, flipping violently over the first turn berm. He was shaken in the accident and evaluated by medical crews on the scene. He will miss the next event with the Tarlton Motorsports team. Once the race resumed, Sanders had his hands full with Scelzi and now sixth starter Colby Copeland. The trio reached lapped traffic with two-laps to go but Sanders ended up holding on for a car length margin of victory worth $4000. "Let's face it, I was lucky that some of those yellows came out tonight," said Sanders. "Dominic was really fast and was all over me when we got in slower traffic. I'll take a little luck any day. I'm just glad that I could score the win for this team. They gave me a great car and I went out and did my job." Scelzi took home second place money in the Scelzi Enterprises 41. Copeland was third aboard Larry Antaya Fire Suppression Systems 16A. Tim Kaeding started and finished fourth aboard the Bates-Hamilton Teichert-sponsored 42X. Shane Golobic was on the move aboard the Elk Grove Ford sprinter, starting 16th and finishing fifth to pocket the Swift Metal Finishing Hardcharger Award money. Bud Kaeding, Canadian Robbie Price, Blake Carrick, Sean Becker and DJ Netto rounded out the top ten. Rico Abreu set a new track record in qualifying with a lightening quick 10.354 second run around the quarter-mile oval. It was Sanders second NARC King of the West victory of the season and 10th of his career. It marked the series first trip to Merced Speedway since 1992. FUJITSU MAIN EVENT (30 laps): 1.

- Mars Wins Fourth Mahder 55 at Red Cedar Speedway
Menomonie WI, Aug. 13 - For the fourth time in the five year history of the Duane Mahder 55, Jimmy Mars came home the winner of this prestigious Late Model event held Friday night at the Red Cedar Speedway. Mars, who's winning streak of three straight Mahder 55 wins was interupted last year by Kevin Adams when the race was held at the Rice Lake Speedway due to the Red Cedar Speedway being closed all year due to Pandemic issues, was back at his home track again Friday night and he drove past Pat Doar on lap fourteen and would then lead the rest of the way to earn $5,555 for his fifty five lap victory. With a fine field of thirty seven drivers signing in to race, four heat races and two B Features would set the twenty six car starting field that would include provisionals Mike Prochnow and Steve Hucovski. The top eight drivers in passing points redrew for their starting positions and Doar, who redrew the pole, would take off strong in the early going, building up a sizable lead over James Giossi and Jake Redetzke. Mars would be one of the few to move to the high side of the track immediately and early on it cost him as he slipped back to seventh spot in the field. However, the top groove soon speeded up and when that happened, Mars would come flying forward through the field at a remarkable pace as he picked off driver after driver on the top side of the track. By lap thirteen he had moved to second with A.J. Diemel following his path as he moved up in the field also. The first yellow was triggered with thirteen laps completed when John Kaanta blew a tire and spun in turn one, collecting Dustin Sorensen and Rick Hanestad. Kaanta would return after changing a tire while Sorensen was also able to drive away from the wreck. Hanestad, however, would need a wrecker's assistance and would be done for the evening. When racing returned, it took Mars just one lap to move back to the high side and blast past Doar into the lead. Redetzke would be on the move also as he took over second from Doar. Jesse Glenz, who was running fourth at the first stoppage, had a bad restart and lost positions to Diemel and Nick Anvelink who blew past him down the back chute. Lap twenty four saw a scheduled fuel stop be called for with fuel only allowed and at this point it was Mars over Redetzke, Doar, Diemel and Anvelink. The race quickly restarted and within a few laps the drivers had migrated from the top side of the track to a lower groove as the track started to take rubber and most drivers lined up on the lower side. Doar went to the top in a bold move when the green reappeared and blew by Redetzke for second and made a strong attempt to retake the lead from Mars. He got close but just couldn't quite get the extra boost he needed to make the pass and when he started to fade back away from Jimmy, he dropped to the lower groove and settled into second. It would be a strategy game from this point on as Mars caught the back of the field and the top five lined up close behind each other but no one was able to make a passing attempt.Mars actually let the cars at the back of the pack pull away from him as he slowed to give himself more room and then picked the pace back up. The top ten runners at this point were pretty much settled in and while each waited for the other to make a mistake and get out of the fast groove, no one slipped up and passing diminshed at this point. One more yellow was triggered with forty seven laps completed when Giossi got into a back marker he was trying to put a lap down and that car spun with Giossi suffering nose piece damage. He tried to continue racing but when the last eight laps were ran off, he quickly pulled out of the groove and headed for the pits. The last yellow gave Mars all the racing room he needed and when the green reappeared, he drove away from the field and would have to deal with no challenges in the remaining laps as he would drive on for a dominating win. Doar would go on to finish a strong second over Redetzke with Diemel and Anvelink completing the top five. The second five would consist of Glenz, Challenge Series point leader Darrell Nelson, Chad Mahder, who's father is honored in this race and came from the back of the pack after changing a tire on lap fourteen, Jeff Massingill and Steve Laursen. Eighteen starters would still be running at the conclusion of the race, all on the lead lap. Mars' check would be for $5,555 in honor of Mahder's number #55 out of a totol Late Model purse of over $42,000, much of which was collected by Scott "Bulldog" Anderson, a long time family friend who has made it his mission to organize this race and lead its fundraising efforts each year. The next racing action at Red Cedar Speedway will be this coming Friday night, August 20th with the last point show of the 2021 racing season. All six classes that normally race at the track will be in action with the scheduled starting time being 7 pm.

- 100% Chance of Rain Forces Cancellation of $20,000 to win USA 100 at Virginia Motor Speedway
Jamaica, Virginia - With the impending weather forecast calling for a 100% chance of rain, management of Virginia Motor Speedway, Ultimate Super Late Model Series, and FASTRAK Racing have made the difficult decision to cancel the August 7th $20,000 to win Ernie Shelton's USA 100. "The decision to cancel a race is the hardest thing we have to do as a promoter. But Mother Nature has forced a decision as we have too many drivers and fans coming from long distances. We don't want to cause them any unnecessary costs for fuel and hotel rooms", commented Virginia Motor owner Bill Sawyer. Sawyer added, "with over an inch of rain forecast and thunderstorms, it is the right decision for us to make with the information we have at our disposal." Forecast data from multiple weather companies lead to the conclusion, 90-100% chance of rain and over an inch of rainfall. "Unfortunately, Mother Nature is once again forcing us to make a decision we didn't want to have to make. With the current forecast, this is the best decision for the teams, fans, and officials, all of whom are traveling considerable distances to attend the USA 100. Above all else, we must keep our fans and competitors in mind," commented FASTRAK International Companies Founder and President Stan Lester. Bill Sawyer's Virginia Motor Speedway is a ½ mile dirt oval track located on U.S. Route 17, eight miles north of Saluda, VA, and 25 miles south of Tappahannock, VA, in Jamaica, VA. The speedway is just a short drive from Richmond, Fredericksburg, Southern Maryland, and the Hampton Roads area.

- Steffes Street Stock Tour Invades Red Cedar Speedway
July 30, 2021, Menomonie, Wisconsin, the Steffes Street Stock Tour presented by Anderson Body Shop and Fuel Service LLC were at the Red Cedar Speedway. WISSOTA Modifieds, Super Stocks, Midwest Modifieds, Street Stocks, and the RCS Hornets were all present. The WISSOTA Late Models were off for the night to allow them to compete in a Challenge Series Race at Gondick Law Speedway in Superior, Wisconsin. Racing action provided arguably the best overall evening in some time as races were hotly contested and provided exciting finishes. Each race had terrific racing throughout the entire field and fans were either on the edges of their seat or standing for a better view. The WISSOTA Modifieds ran two heats with Ashley Anderson and Adam Ayotte each scoring victories off of the front row. Cory Williams and Paul Harelstad led the feature to green, but it was Mike Anderson using a slider to move from fourth to the lead on the first lap. Williams ran second over Harelstad, Shane Halopka, and a charging Ashley Anderson, until a lap five spin involving Steve Hallquist and AJ Roschen slowed the pace. On the restart, Mike remained the leader as Ashley drove to second. Ashley has been nearly unbeatable in 2021 and was coming off a huge win the evening before at the 444 Tanner Byholm Memorial at ABC Raceway in Ashland. He attempted a slider in turns three and four, but the leader was too strong. For the next fifteen laps, the top two drove away from the field to over a one third lap advantage. Mike attacked the cushion as Ashley followed in his tire tracks. Ashley dropped down in turns three and four to pull even for the lead on several occasions; however, Mike's high side momentum carried him back out front down the front stretch. It was classic racing right against the wall as two modified aces put on a show for the crowd. Ashley drove it in hard on the final circuit to pull even once again in turn four. But again, the momentum saw Mike maintain the lead as the two flashed under the checkered flag in a race for the ages. Behind them Cory Williams, Shane Halopka, and Daniel Bargender rounded out the top five. There were three Super Stock heats topped by Dan Nissalke, Andrew Davis, and Ron Mahder. Terran Spacek took the early lead of the feature and looked strong, but a yellow flag flew for a Kaden Woodie spin which reset the field. On the restart, a mid-pack car did not fire under green, and it stacked up the back half of the field. On the next restart attempt, Jesse Redetzke moved to the point bringing Dan Nissalke along with him past Spacek. Shortly thereafter, the yellow flag flew again after a spin farther back in the pack that collected three others. They came back to green as Redetzke led Nissalke. Nissalke attacked hard and challenged for the lead and appeared to have something for the tough Redetzke, but the race was cut short due to time limits. Redetzke scored his eleventh victory of the season over Nissalke, Spacek, Doug Koski, and Andrew Davis. Nick Ayotte, Kennedy Swan, and Travis Anderson all scored victories in the Midwest Modified heats. In the feature it was the youngster, Kaden Blaeser taking the point and looking strong. Behind him Jay Richardson and Shadow Kitchner took turns swapping second position back and forth. Richardson moved to the ultra-high line and began to make some ground on the leader as Swan joined the fray and overtook Kitchner for third. Richardson, without a doubt had the most experience on the raceway as he drove hard to track down the leader, the preteen rookie sensation. The elder has more than two times the years of experience racing open wheel Modifieds and Midwest Modifieds as the leader has been alive. Richardson's experience helped him greatly as he navigated the treacherous top side and the leader's car appeared to fade some in the late going. Richardson ate into Blaeser's significant advantage, caught him, and passed for the lead. Blaeser fought back and regained the point on the backstretch, but Richardson's high side momentum moved him out front for good. As the leaders were approaching the white flag, Cory Deilke came to a halt on the backstretch and drew a caution. The green, white, checkered shoot out to the finish saw Richardson undaunted up high to the win as Blaeser was forced to settle for second. Shadow Kitchner used the late race restart to retake third from Swan, and Tyler Vernon rounded out the top five. 32 Street Stocks registered for the Steffes Street Stock Tour as Cole Richards, Dustin Doughty, Justin Vogel, and Andrew Hanson each scored victories in their heats. A B Feature saw Jeff Ekdahl, Adam Soltis, Brandon Hakala, and Ashley Wampler earn their way into the feature. It took three tries for the feature to get under green, and it was the pole sitter, Andrew Hanson taking the point. Dustin Doughty moved to second and Hunter VanGilder ran third. VanGilder then took Doughty two-wide in a bid to overtake the runner up position. On lap six, after Doughty had regained control of second, he began to work the leader heavily for the point. Three laps later it was Hanson, Doughty, and now Justin Vogel making a three-wide bid for the lead. A destroyed blown out right rear tire on the back stretch brought the field to a slow as the driver could not get completely clear of the racing surface. The restart saw Hanson out front as Kyle Genett joined Vogel and Doughty in a three-wide battle behind him. Genett got his nose inside Hanson and Vogel continued his high-side assault and moved up to go three deep for the point. It was Vogel by inches at the line, but Genett took the lead the following lap. After having led the entire race, third running Hanson spun in turn four with seventeen of twenty laps in the books. The restart saw Genett out front, but Vogel was able to pull even at the white flag. It was Genett's night though as he took control in the final circuit and was scored the winner of a terrific race. Vogel finished second over VanGilder and Parker Anderson who started twelfth on the field. Doughty scored a top five finish with Braden Brauer finishing in the sixth position. Cody Kummer, Kyle Anderson, Billie Christ, and Hunter Carter rounded out the top ten. Sean Svee won the RCS Hornet heat as Jeremy Johnson won his eighth feature in a row and his tenth overall in 2021. A spinning leader, Scott Cooper, drew the first caution flag of the race on lap two as Svee was called for the foul. Cooper was lined back up as the leader, but one lap later, Johnson found the lead which he never relinquished. There was one more caution in the event which again saw Cooper spinning and regaining his position on the restart. Johnson led the remainder as Sean Svee recovered from the rear on an early restart to finish second. Armond Love finished third over Jason Helgeson and Scott Cooper. The Red Cedar Speedway is off next week to accommodate for the USA Nationals, a $50,000 to win late model race at Cedar Lake Speedway. They will return to racing in Menomonie on August 13, 2021, for the WISSOTA Late Model Challenge Series, 4th Annual Duane Mahder #55 Memorial Race presented by Champ Pans and Midwest Food and Tobacco. The WISSOTA Late Models will battle for a large payday, and the card will include the WISSOTA Modifieds, Super Stocks, and Street Stocks.

- Dylan Westbrook Finally A Winner With The Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series
Bryan Hulbert - CANEY, Kan. (July 28, 2021) Lapped traffic giveth, and it taketh, and in the case of Dylan Westbrook, slower cars were just what he needed on Wednesday night at Caney Valley Speedway to get the run on race-long leader, Jake Bubak, and finally make it into SawBlade.com Victory Lane on night five of Lucas Oil ASCS Sprint Week presented by Smiley's Racing Products with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network. "Super happy. We've been running really good lately, so we knew it was going to happen eventually. Just kept on working at it and finally got it done," stated Dylan of the win. "The car was perfect, where the longer the run the better it got. Once the fuel burned off, I could really let it rip." Commenting on the move in traffic, Westbrook said, "The same thing that happened to me earlier, happened to him. It just happened to work out in our favor. That's how racing goes." Happening in his 51st A-Feature start, Dylan is the 160th driver to top the National Tour, the tenth different driver this season to win a National event, and the fifth Canadian driver to claim an ASCS National win; joining Thomas Kennedy, Robbie Price, Marc Duperron, and Skylar Gee. Chasing with two to go, Bubak rolled up on a pair of slower cars. Having to vacate the cushion that had carried him the entire race, Westbrook took his shot going into the first turn. Beating Bubak to the second turn, the pair drag raced to the back straightaway with the Hills Racing No. 47x squeezing by. Keeping his nose clean around the lingering slower cars, Westbrook pulled away by 3.232-seconds over the closing lap as Bubak and Timms commenced to trading haymaker-style slide jobs at both ends of the Caney Valley Speedway. Getting the final slide, Ryan Timms captured the second podium step with Jake Babak holding on for the bronze. Several times battling with Blake Hahn, Arizona's Colton Hardy held on for fourth with Hahn in fifth. In the top five battle early on, Tyler Thomas ended up sixth with Matt Covington advancing nine times to finish seventh. Up from 15th, J.J. Hickle made it to eighth with Noah Harris ninth. Brandon Anderson completed the top ten. Lucas Oil ASCS Sprint Week presented by Smiley's Racing Products continues Thursday, July 29 at 81-Speedway in Park City, Kan.
