- Dishong, Hoover, Bailey, Solander, Derry, Johnson and Schmidt fly McCarthy Autogroup checkers at I-35 Speedway!
As the season winds down at I-35 Speedway more new cars continue to check in to the pit area. This week 124 cars checked in for an exciting night of racing for the Larry McFee trucking "Be aware cancer rally" night. Chris Dishong started the night off winning his 7th feature of the season in his Mike Lewis owned #54L E-Mod. Early on Dishong had a fierce battle with last week's winner Darren Bennett and Reece Solander. Solander would pull off with mechanical issues, but Bennett continued to wage war with Dishong. After a couple of late restarts Dishong would pull away and pick up the wind. Bennett would hold on to finish second, current points leader Michael Taylor III driving Nic Hanes 9h machine would finish third, George Burnett finished fourth with an improving Andrew Thomas fifth. For the first time this season Brandon Hoover came back to the track where he raced in his very first Pure Stock race, and that would prove to be a wise decision as he picked up his very first Pure Stock win of his career. Hoover held off furious challenges throughout the race. Conrad Kaufman finished second, Kenton Walston was third, Kristchon Hisel fourth and Ava Dixon got another top 5 finishing fifth. Shayne Bailey started driving Michael Dotson's Midwest Limited Late Model about a month ago and has had some success in the 55D hotrod. Saturday night Bailey achieved the ultimate success by picking up his first career win in the division. Bailey battled it out with Houston Johnson but pulled away in the end. Johnson would finish second, Jon Binning third, Paul Glendenning fourth and points leader Kerry Davis fifth. Reece Solander won his 4th USRA B-Mod feature in his 5th start of the season at I-35 Speedway. Solander and 7-time winner Shadren Turner waged war as they got into heavy lap traffic toward the end of the 15 lap event. A late caution would give Solander the clean race track he needed to pull away to secure the win. Turner would finish second, points leader Tyler Cadwallader ran with the top 2 for most of the race finished third, Cole Moore was fourth and Corey Myers fifth. Brad Derry led every lap of the USRA Stock Car feature picking up the win. It wasn't easy as he had to hold off defending track champion Doug Keller, Nic Hanes, Ed Griggs and Thomas Roberts who all finished in the top 5. Derry won in only his second trip to the famed track this season. USRA Modified points leader Houston Johnson picked up his ninth feature win of the season to go with three in his Midwest Limited Late Model. Johnson got by leader Daniel Harris who developed mechanical issues halfway through the 20-lap feature. Johnson then must hold off the 2020 track champion Tyler Hibner for the win. Ed Noll finishing the season in Shayne Bailey's #7 car finished second, Tyler Grooms with a good run in third, Tyler Hibner rebounded from a last lap spin to finish fourth and Eric Johnson finished fifth. Devin Schmidt picked up his first Sport Compact feature win of the season at I-35 Speedway Saturday night. Schmidt was in the right place at the right time and cruise to victory. Harold Robb Sr finished second in a photo finish over Keegan Russell, who finished third. Chris Nichols was fourth and Mikel Solberg was fifth. Congratulations to Lillian Withrow winning the last little buddies Power Wheels race of the season presented by T&T Builders out of Lamoni, Iowa. Congratulations to this week's fan of the Week Levohtray Gibson sponsored by Wild Child Nation, BF racing, Vest racing and Manthe Motorsports. Only 2 weeks remain in the 2021 season.

The last two weeks of the season we will start one hour earlier, racing will be at 6:00 p.m.
- Topless Nationals Finale Washed Out at Genesee
Rich Vleck, BATAVIA, NY, (September 25, 2021)- After a thrilling night one of the Topless Nationals, the pit area was filled with high expectations for Saturday's event, but Mother Nature had other ideas. Five laps in to the first heat race of the night, rain forced the street stocks off the track and as precipitation intensified it became impossible to get the second night of the Topless Nationals completed anywhere near the curfew time of 11:00 p.m., forcing the event to be called. A possible rain date is being explored later this year, which is why all pit entrants were asked to hang on to their pit pass. If the event is unable to be run, those with pit bands will be able to mail in their passes for a refund. This decision will be made by the middle of the week. Before racing was halted, the RUSH Late Models and the Sportsman completed their time trial sessions. Michael Durtisky Jr was the quickest late model with a lap of 17.319 seconds while Friday Night Sportsman winner Phil Vigneri III turned the fastest lap at 17.563 seconds. The Late Models, Sportsman and Street Stocks all had car counts in the high 20s, which would have resulted in consolation races for each division.

- JOHN WATERS and PHIL VIGNERI III TOPS ON TOPLESS NIGHT 1 AT GENESEE
Rich Vleck, BATAVIA, NY, (September 24, 2021)- A chilly yet clear fall night made for some of the best racing of the season at the Genesee Speedway with fast yet technical action around the 1/3-mile oval. Running a car he had never been in before, John Waters saw his new ride come to life and put some veteran moves together to notch his first RUSH Late Model Tour win in years. Waters, of Whitesville, moved by Joe Martin on a lap 21 restart and would drive off to win the 30-lap feature on night one of the Topless Nationals at Genesee Speedway. Restarts were friendly to Waters all race long, as Martin selected the inside line on each occasion, which is historically the weaker groove to restart in on the 1/3-mile. Waters, who had led laps three through 18 was run down by Martin on a long green flag run was unsure until the finish if he would be able to fend off the No. 10s. "I saw before the feature that he had (a harder compound tire) on so when he ran me back down and peaked underneath me I thought it was over," admitted Waters in Victory Lane, holding the $2,000 payday placard. Lap 27 was really where the battle for the race lead heated up, with Martin appearing poised to pass Waters' No. 32 entry. A lap later, though, Waters had the LeBarron-owned ride back out by three car lengths, enough breathing room to enable him to bring home the victory. Michael Durtisky Jr. had taken the initial race lead rim-riding on lap one but a lap later came to a stop in turn four and had to restart in the back. As Martin took the lead and would hand it over on the ensuing restart to Waters, Duritsky was on a mission, getting back inside the top five just 11 laps in to the race. As the lead duo battled it out for the win, Duritsky was the show, coming home in fourth, just behind Jeremy Wonderling who got back up to third at the end of the race. Jimmy Johnson would round out the top five in his new race car, outlasting JJ Mazur, who broke on the final lap and would be credited with a 12th place finish. With the sportsman running after the late models, a different race track was presented to those teams than they normally see, which was just what Phil Vigneri III wanted. Vigneri, of Elba, used the bottom line to drive up from the fifth starting spot to run down Brett Senek and pass him on lap 17 to win his fourth feature of the season, but his first since June 26. "This track had a lot of bite tonight, but it had a bottom, and that's what I needed," said Vigneri after the 25-lap feature. "To go up against one of the best Sportsman racers in Brett Senek and get this win, this is huge." Senek had made a quality charge of his own, taking the lead on the first lap despite starting in third place. Just before the race's first caution flag on lap 10, though, it was clear that Vigneri was reeling in the No. 111. The yellow flag would slow up PV3's momentum but once a long green flag stretch ensued, his No. 12v came back to life and got him the race lead he would never relinquish. As Vigneri and Senek paced the field, Ohio frontrunner Chas Wolbert finished in third in his first appearance in Batavia. Noah Walker would cross in fourth while veteran Randy Chrysler rounded out the top five. The RUSH Sprint Cars put on a feature for the ages as their 20-lap event ran from start to finish without a caution and saw a last-lap pass for the lead. Weekly series point leader Gale Ruth Jr. paced the field from the drop of the green flag but was stalked by Chad Ruhlman and Ryan Fraley for much of the race. Ruhlman began to make his move just after halfway and looked to have the pass set up on lap 13 but was unable to move by the No. 24. After resetting his No. 68, Ruhlman ran the leader back down in the closing laps and drove by the lead down the backstretch on the final lap, completing a slidejob in turns 3 and 4 and hanging on to win the thrilling feature. For Ruhlman, his eighth win of the season will tighten up the points with Ruth with just a handful of races remaining. Ruhlman also remained perfect at Genesee Speedway, as he is the only driver to win a RUSH Sprint Car feature in the four apperances by the series in Batavia. Behind the lead duo was Ryan Fraley with a fine third place effort. Blaze Myers and Steve Pedley rounded out the top five. Josh Pangrazio put on a clinic in the Street Stock Feature, as he led 19 of the 20 laps to capture the $1000 top prize. Pangrazio, the two-time track champion from Elba, took the lead on the second circuit from his buddy Dennis Cummings, who was focused on battling with Brandon Sherwood for the top spot on the opening lap. Once jumping out in front, Pangrazio was untouched, however John Zimmerman was able to reel in the No. 7 in the middle of the race to keep the result in question until the end. Zimmerman would have to settle for second, ahead of Joe Chamberlain who made a fine run up to third. 2021 Track Champion Bill Taylor picked up two spots in the final three laps to finish fourth, just ahead of Tommy Kemp and Tom Baker. The final feature of the night was the Mini Stock event which had a unique ending as Dante Mancuso led wire-to-wire, but would be disqualified before reaching Victory Lane, as would runner-up Bill Weller Jr. for technical infractions. The win would go to Rich Conte, which would give the No. 717 driver his second win of the season at Genesee. The race featured just two early stoppages, including a red flag for youngster Ian Paul turning over his No. 38$ but walking away. The final 19 laps saw dense lapped traffic, with only six cars remaining on the lead lap. After technical inspection, Rich Conte would finish ahead of Rocco Conte, Don Whiteside, Brad Whiteside and Andrew Gayton in the top five. Racing action will round out on Saturday with all five divisions back in competition starting at 6:00 P.M. For more information, visit www.Genesee-Speedway.com.

Morton. Sheets pulled away by lap five leaving Jackson and Morton to battle for second. Sheets built a 2.3 second lead by lap 10 just as caution flew over the field. On the restart, Morton moved to second behind Sheets on the high side. Through the mid stages of the race, Morton looked for a line around Sheets through a pair of additional caution periods, but Sheets fought off all challenges. Behind the leaders, close battles took place as Terry Schultz, Tim Powell, and Brad Smith lingered in the top five. Shadren Turner, who started 24th also was on the move into the top ten as were Steven Clancy, Dean Wille, Jeremy Lile, and Sturgis Streeter from deep in the field. Jackson unexpectedly exited the race at lap 20, with Sheets comfortably out front. Tim Powell and Brad Smith moved forward towards the end of the race behind Schultz in third. Morton tried to close in on Sheets on the high side but could not draw close enough to make a bid for the lead as Sheets ultimately went on to score one of the biggest race victories of his career. Morton finished second ahead of Schultz, Powell, and Smith. The rest of the top ten were rounded out by Tuner, Clancy, Wille, Lile, and Streeter.

(DNF) 82-David Wood Jason Pursely and Dalton Kirk earned front-row honors for the A-Mod main event with Kirk grabbing the early lead. Yellow flew over the field on two occasions in the race before racing resumed with Kirk leading Pursley, Matt Johnson, Gunner Martin, and Dennis Elliott. Johnson then advanced to the front of the field through one more caution period before a long green flag run found the drivers in their rhythm. By lap 10, Johnson led the field by 1.2 seconds with Martin in hot pursuit after a spirited battle for second with Kirk. Pursley and Elliott also ran a close and clean race in fourth and fifth. Johnson ran the low side for a while with Martin up high and by lap 16 the pair were side-by-side. At lap 18, caution flew with Johnson taking the field back to green. The field raced through two additional cautions until the final two laps saw the excitement kick into high gear with Martin pressuring Johnson up front. The final two laps saw changes for the lead before Martin finally emerged as the winner in the outstanding finish over Johnson. Austin Siebert crept into the picture late in the race by advancing to third at the finish in a close battle with Kirk, Elliott, and Jason Pursley to round out the top six.

(DNS) 67-Devin Irvin A strong field of Super Stocks took the green flag with Aaron Poe and Nathan Vaughn leading the way. During the early laps it appeared to be a two-man race for the win between Poe and Vaughn, but it was not in the cards for Vaughn on this night as he retired early from the event. Clayton Campbell, Larry Ferris, and Michael Mullins looked strong inside the top five through lap eight. Campbell began his charge forward by the halfway marker in second behind Poe while Ferris, Ted Welschmeyer and Mullins battled for third. A pair of late yellow flag periods setup a final rush to the green flag by lap 14. Poe kept his machine out front, but Campbell continued to keep things interesting. In the end, it was Poe who captured his fifth victory of the year with Campbell second. Welschmeyer scored valuable POWRi national points in his bid for that title by finishing third. Ferris stayed strong in fourth with Blaine Ewing advancing from twelfth to fifth.

(DNS) 10X-Nick Hillberg Tyler Johnson and Mark Billings began the main event from row one with Billings taking command. Johnson and Bobby Layne battled for second for the first half of the race as Billings built up a sizeable lead. Caution flew at lap three as the field regrouped for the green flag with a close race at the front between Billings, Johnson, and Layne. Billings led the way, but it was Layne who began to close on the leader and by lap ten made his way to the front. The rest of the race was all Layne's as he kept Billings at bay to collect his ninth career CMS win over Billings, Chase Fischer, eight-starting Trice Roden, and Johnson. During the victory interview, Layne stated, "This one's for Carla." His wife had unexpectedly passed away just a few weeks prior.

The competition was close through an early yellow flag period between Evans, Jeff Hardy, and Joey Harper. The race stayed green until lap 13 when caution flew for a second time, setting up a green, white, and checkered flag finish. Evans brought the field to green under heavy pressure from Chase Galvan, who was involved in the early caution and had to go to the tail of the field. Galvan used the outside line throughout the race to gain ground on the leaders. On the white flag lap, Galvan was side-by-side with Evans as both drivers were in search of their first CMS win. As the pair came off turn four, it was Galvan sealing the win with his incredible drive to the front, Evans recorded his best of the year in second with Spencer Reiff advancing from tail back all the way to third. Zack Smith was a smooth and consistent runner in fourth with Hardy rounding out the top five.

- Dave Conant and Jimmy Johnson Capture Feature Wins on Championship Night
Rich Vleck, BATAVIA, NY, (September 4, 2021)- A fast, yet technical racetrack put a variety of drivers in Victory Lane on Championship Night; some were drivers that had already secured their 2021 title, some who locked it up on Saturday, while others were drivers just happy to be back holding the checkered flag. Dave Conant broke through for his first Sportsman Feature win in over three years and drove an incredible race to withstand Cameron Tuttle's many advances to prevail in the 25-lap event. "We needed this. We needed this one bad," stated an emotional Conant in Victory Lane. "I ran the race kind of backwards from what I'm used to as I like the bottom (groove) but ran up on the top for most of the race until the end." The results will show that Conant led the final 23 laps, the but reality is that the lead was up for grab for nearly 10 laps of the race. After taking the lead on lap 3 from Jessica Kriegisch, "Cadillac" broke out to a healthy lead. By lap 10, Cameron Tuttle had sliced his way up to second and had begun to reel in the leader. A caution on lap 14 would erase the margin and on the ensuing restart Tuttle would dive underneath the No. 44 heading in to turns 1 and 2 and keep it that way until the next caution flag waved on lap 22. As the duo raced side-by-side, Conant knew his chance to win was in peril. "Each lap he would gain on me by a quarter of a car-length every lap on the bottom," said Conant. "A few times I thought he had me but I knew the bottom was a little tougher to run so I tried to keep him pinned down there." While under caution on lap 22, Conant changed up his plan by moving to the bottom of the track once they got back racing. The move caught Tuttle off guard and allowed the No. 44 enough breathing room to run off to his first win since July of 2018. Tuttle's second-place effort was enough to secure his second-straight track championship. Phil Vigerni III, the other championship contender, struggled in his heat but ran up to third in the feature. AJ Custodi finished fourth in his first start at Genesee this season, while Jessica Kriegisch put together her best run of the year, rounding out the top five. Defending Late Model Track Champion Jimmy Johnson knew this year's title was no longer within reach, but that didn't slow him down in the feature as he ran off to lead all 25 laps and win his second event of the season. Johnson took the lead from the pole position and ran off and hid in a caution-free event that was completed in under eight minutes. While his lead was never in doubt, his engine was more questionable. "About 10 laps in I saw the pressure gauge fluctuating and I started smelling (smoke)," noted Johnson afterwards in front of his still-smoking No. 39J. "Then I noticed it wasn't coming back up fully so I don't know if we cooked a motor or not but I just tried to get it to the end." 2021 Track Champion Bill Holmes had started to reel in "Kid Lightning" around the point that the leader starting pushing water, but over the second half of the race Johnson started to build his lead to run off to his second win in the last four starts. With the championship already in hand, Holmes experimented with his No. 8 on the night and was pleased with his second-place effort. Jon Rivers had a solid car to score a season-best third place finish. Doug Ricotta and JJ Mazur rounded out the top five. Last season, Bill Taylor was a co-champion in the Street Stocks, but only won a single feature; on Saturday Night he led all 20 laps of the feature to win his sixth feature and lock up his second straight championship in style. Taylor, of Arcade, capitalized on a lucky break he got in his heat race where he snuck in to the redraw on the final lap, then he grabbed the pole position and then was untouched in a race where he could not afford a mistake in. In a year he characterized as his best year, as well as his worst year (when it came to mechanical luck), Taylor kept Dan Schulz, last week's winner, a healthy distance behind him throughout the event, as "The Golden One" was never pressured. Schulz would hang on for second, while a fierce battle took place for third, with John Zimmerman finishing in that position. Chuck Mogavero finished fourth for his best result of the season while Brandon Sherwood rounded out the top five. Bill Weller Jr. was the class of the field in the Mini Stocks as he dominated to win his second feature in the last four weeks. "Wild Bill Jr." had a lead of over four seconds midway through the race and was on cruise control even with Dante Mancuso chopping down his lead in the closing laps. As those two were out in front of the pack, Brad Whiteside was just behind them locking up his second-straight track championship with a third place effort. Whiteside just edged Rich Conte at the line for the third spot, while Olivia Coniber completed the top five finishers. Jake Bansmer picked up his 2021 Track Championship in style as he captured his 12th win of the season in the Novice Sportsman. Bansmer took the lead from Andrew Joy on a lap five restart and never looked back as he ran off to a comfortable win, his second in a row. Andrew Joy's runner-up finish was his sixth second place effort in his last seven starts. Tyler Guzzardi rounded out the podium positions. Seth Johnson of Castile led all 12 laps of the Bandit Feature to win his fourth feature of the season. Johnson jumped out in front of 2021 Track Champion Alexis Traxler and while she would give good chase throughout, Johnson was strong enough to outlast her for his second consecutive win. As that duo battled for the lead, a feisty competition was up for the third spot with Grayson Harding coming away with that position. On the final circuit, DJ Goetz, who was making his first start, flipped his car but was thankfully able to walk away. With the points now settled for 2021, attention now turns to the final weekend of the season, the Topless Weekend on September 24 and 25, featuring the RUSH Late Model and Sprint Car Tours, a $2,000-to-win Sportsman event, plus big shows for the Street Stocks and Mini Stocks.

- Chad Homan Pulls Late-Race Move to Win while Cameron Tuttle Stays Hot at Genesee
Rich Vleck, BATAVIA, NY, (August 28, 2021)- Chad Homan lost the lead in the Late Model Feature on a lap five restart when he selected the inferior bottle line for the restart. After struggling to get back by Bill Holmes throughout the feature and seemingly being out of options, Homan went for it all and ended up pulling off one of the best moves of the season. On a hot and steamy night at the Genesee Speedway, Chad Homan, of Macedon, rim rode around the outside Bill Holmes on a lap 21 restart to reclaim the lead and set sail for his first win at Genesee in just his second start in Batavia in 2021. "I put a hard tire on this car and kept trying to pass (Holmes) on the bottom but there just wasn't the right move," recalled Homan after the feature. "There was a restart that got called back and he had moved down to block my dive down so under that yellow I kept working the top to keep heat in the right rear tire and I noticed that the top might have some rubber. I knew it was going to surprise him and when I went in there was a little bit of a curb on the top (of turn 1) and I hit it just right which set my cart on the right path and it just took off." The 25-lap feature was mired by cautions, but it also gave Homan a number of looks at how to move by on the restarts. The Fulton Speedway point leader utilized his off-night from that track to visit Genesee in preparation for the Topless Nationals next month and found himself thrashing on his No. 91 to find speed. "Whatever worked here in 2019 does not work now," he declared. "We were off in the heat so we got on the phone with Lazer (Chassis) and made the most changes on the car I've made in six years and it worked." As Homan was running off to the win, Bill Holmes had his hands full to hold off a hard-charging Doug Ricotta for second. The runner-up finish was good enough to secure Holmes his first career Genesee Track Championship. Ricotta's third-place effort was his second-straight podium finish. Dave DuBois and Paul Grigsby recorded solid top five finishes. Cameron Tuttle had a dominant performance to capture his fifth Sportsman Feature win of 2021 and put himself in a strong position to repeat for the track championship next weekend. Tuttle, of Wilson, took the lead from Jim Harbison on the race's only restart on lap 11 by using the bottom line and then got back to the top of the track and never looked back. "We're on a pretty good roll right now," stated Tuttle in Victory Lane, reflecting on his second-straight Genesee win as well as his second win of the weekend. "The track had a lot of bite on the bottom and we were good down there." The race was filled with side-by-side racing throughout the event with Jim Harbison able to hold on for a strong second-place showing. Noah Walker ran up from sixth to finish in third, just in front of Dave Conant. Ray Bliss held off Phil Vigneri III to round out the top five. Dan Schulz utilized a strong starting spot of fourth in the Street Stock Feature to jump out in front early and stay there as he led the final 19 laps to score his first feature win of the year. Schulz, from Newfane, became the eighth different winner in the division in 2021. Chuck Mogavero led the opening circuit from the outside pole but after a lap 2 restart Schulz was able to drive underneath the No. 21m and drive out in front. The race got off to a slow start with a few cautions, including Kenny Begnouche flipping his No. 44m down the backstretch. He was able to climb out of the car on his own. Once green flag laps were run, there was great racing throughout the pack but the unsponsored No. 66 was supreme and held a steady lead all the way to the end. Point leader Bill Taylor had a strong run coming from the eighth starting position to take the runner-up position on lap eight but as good as he was on the bottom, Schulz was even better. Taylor would hold off Brandon Sherwood for second, who he is battling with for the championship heading in to the championship race next week. John Zimmerman and Damian Long would drive up to round out the top five. Rich Conte had not been able to touch his race car all week until Saturday Morning but he was able to be in position on a lap 12 restart to drive in front of Cole Susice and run off to his first Mini Stock Feature win of the year. Conte was not only happy to capture his first Genesee win since June of 2020, it was the first race he had finished in 2021 in his No. 717. The top line was the dominant groove early in the 15-lap feature, with Susice pacing the field in front of Don Whiteside and Conte. Coming to complete lap 11, Conte got underneath Whiteside and the two made contact down the frontstretch, when they became unhinged Whiteside barrel-rolled wildly off of turn 1 but was uninjured. On the ensuing restart, Conte came to life from the second spot and jumped in front of Susice and never looked back to become the eighth different driver to win in the division this season. Susice would hold off Andrew Gayton for second, while Brad Whiteside ran up to fourth to put himself in good position heading in to championship night. Bill Weller Jr. rounded out the top five. Jake Bansmer used patience, along with a great run off the bottom of the track to drive up to the lead in front of Andrew Joy and go on to win his 11th Novice Sportsman Feature Win of the season, securing the division championship along the way. A night after his car got injured and put his ability to race tonight in jeopardy, Bansmer, of East Aurora, started in the fourth position but ran up to take the lead away on lap nine after Andrew Joy fought hard to hang in front but would have to settle for his fifth runner-up finish in the last six starts. Tyler Guzzardi won his heat and ran to a third-place finish. Seth Johnson utilized a restart on lap eight to drive by Alexis Traxler and hold her off over the final five laps to win the Bandit Feature. Johnson, of Castile, had chased down Traxler from the seventh starting position before the race's only caution then quickly took the lead on the restart for his third win of the year. Traxler was able to hold on to second, which helped her lock up the division title for 2021. Ian Paul drove up from the back of the pack to round out the podium. The 2021 point season will round out next Saturday Night at Dale Valley Diecast presents Championship Night next Saturday, September 4.

- Bill Holmes Supreme, Brandon Sherwood Breaks Through on Saturday at Genesee
Rich Vleck, (August 21, 2021)- A hot and humid night that was preceded by rain earlier in the day presented the perfect conditions for fast and exciting action Saturday Night at Genesee Speedway. Add to it that autograph night brought out lots of sharpies, candy and pictures and it was a special evening for racing. Late Model point leader Bill Holmes has been at his best this season when the track is on the slicker side, but on the tacky surface on Saturday he fared just as well, cruising to his fifth feature win of the season. Holmes, of E. Concord, took the lead on lap five from Austin Hauser and never looked back in the caution-free 25-lap event. "The car was excellent tonight," declared Holmes in Victory Lane. "The track was excellent too. My car got just a little tight towards the end but it was excellent." After starting fourth, Holmes was up to second place by the end of the first lap, he stalked Austin Hauser until finally moving by. Once getting in front, Holmes maintained a lead near two seconds while slicing through lapped traffic. The nearest competition was Doug Ricotta, who drove up from sixth to second but was a caution flag away from going for the win and would settle for second. Dustin Waters drove from eighth to finish third. Jimmy Johnson squeaked out fourth place over Austin Hauser at the line. Austin Susice ran to an apparent win in the Sportsman Feature, but after the event, Susice was deemed to be have illegal engine components and was disqualified, handing the win over to Cam Tuttle. Tuttle, of Wilson, started off strong running to the lead from the outside pole position. He held the lead throughout by riding the rim of the 1/3-mile oval, which is typical a successful strategy at Genesee, but on Saturday night the bottom line was also serviceable and that was where Susice was able to gain in his No. 81. After showing his nose on the bottom for a few laps, Tuttle went to block but got crossed up to open up the door for the lead change. Tuttle would then have to hold off Dave Conant which would end up being for the race win. It is the fourth win of the year for Tuttle. Conant's second place result was followed by a close Noah Walker. Point leader Phil Vigerni III had to start at the tail after mechanical issues in his heat race but was the hard charger of the feature as he nipped Kyle Richner at the line as they rounded out the top five. The Street Stock Feature had a feel-good result as Brandon Sherwood captured his first feature win at Genesee after so many close calls. Sherwood, of Sanborn, jumped out in front from the outside pole but had polesitter Tommy Kemp chasing him all the way to the checkered flag for the win. Sherwood, who had finished in the top 3 in eight of his last nine features without grabbing a win, held a steady lead until a caution on lap 16 erased his advantage over two seconds and allowed Kemp two final chances to dive underneath the No. 87 but Sherwood was too strong and would drive off to become the seventh different driver to win a Street Stock feature this year. It was also a big night in the championship race for Sherwood as point leader Bill Taylor was involved in a wreck on lap two and was unable to continue. As Kemp crossed in second, a feverish battle was on for third with Dan Schulz driving up for his best finish of the year. Tom Baker also recorded his best finish of 2021 with a fourth place result, with Pat Powers rounding out the top five. The Mini Stocks reeled off a caution-free feature which came right down to the wire for the win; in the end Andrew Gayton was able to fend off Bill Weller Jr. for his third win of the season. Gayton, of Batavia, had Weller breathing down his bumper as they crossed under the white flag and as the duo entered turn one, Gayton instantly showed smoke and fluid spewing out of his No. 10A as they raced through the corners. The smoke reappeared in the final set of corners but he was still able to hold off Weller for the win. Gayton would state after the race that it was a power steering line that blew but when it happened he feared it was the engine and was going to have to destroy it pushing it to the finish line. It was the third-straight top two finish for Weller who gave good pressure throughout the event. Rocco Conte's No. 717jr lost power on the final lap, handing third over to Ryan Allen for his best finish in his fifth start of 2021. Don Whiteside also had a season-best finish of fourth while Andy Schumaker rounded out the top five. The Novice Sportsman Feature was an absolute thriller as Allison Dewitt held off division point leader Jake Bansmer to capture her first career feature win. Dewitt, of LeRoy, jumped out front on the initial green flag but lost the lead to Bansmer coming to complete lap eight. As the duo entered turns 1 and 2 though, Dewitt was able to use a lapped car as a pick and get back around the No. 71 to take the top spot back. Once retaking the lead, Dewitt moved her No. 16 to the bottom of the track to hold on for the win over a fellow Bandit Champion. Tyler Guzzardi crossed in a closs third. Ridge Cobb captured his second Bandit Feature win of the season as he passed Seth Johnson on lap three and never looked back to win the caution-free event. Cobb started in third but quickly drove forward and was solid slicling through lapped traffic to return to Victory Lane in just his third start in Batavia. Point leader Alexis Traxler made a hard charge to challenge for the lead but would settle for second. Seth Johnson rounded out the podium positions. Just two weeks remain in the regular season. Next Saturday, Royal T Trucking will present a Super 6 at 6:00 program, featuring Halloween night as part of "Kids Night Out". For more information, visit www.Genesee-Speedway.com.

- Jimmy Johnson and Brandon Michaud Notch First Wins of 2021 on Saturday at Genesee
Rich Vleck, BATAVIA, NY, (August 14, 2021)- On a night which may have had the best weather of any this season, a mixture of current point leaders and first-time winners helped to make Saturday another successful night of racing. A year ago, Jimmy Johnson could do no wrong, winning half of the features and cruising to his first championship. As good as 2020 was, 2021 has been a year to forget, up until Saturday Night that is, when he finally got the No. 39J the way he needed and got back to his championship form. Johnson led all 25 laps of the Late Model Feature to claim his first checkered flag of the year. "Kid Lightning" quickly jumped in front from the outside pole and was unchallenged for the most part to become the seventh different winner in the division this year. "We have been struggling with this car and finally found the inexpensive part in the birdcage that had kept us behind all year," said Johnson in Victory Lane. One of the key points of the race occurred on a lap 12 as the caution flag waved just as Johnson was getting slowed up by lapped traffic. On the ensuing restart, Dave DuBois gave him a challenge but Johnson was prepared for it and was able to jump back in front. "I saw (DuBois) on the scoreboard and I know that neither of us like to wait on a restart," recalled Johnson. "He started to go and once he checked up I went and got out in front." After his struggles for much of this season, Johnson had bought a new car to enter in to his stable starting next week, but after the way his current No. 39J performed on Saturday, he said they might have to reconsider that transition. Dave DuBois was able to hang on for his second-straight runner-up finish. Steve Dixon placed in third in a rare start at Genesee. Jeremy Wonderling quickly drove from 10th up to 4th but struggled to find any traction once he got to that point, even slipping over the banking in the closing laps. Point leader Bill Holmes rounded out the top five. Brandon Michaud had put some good races together at Genesee this season in Sportsman competition, but nothing that could compare to the performance he orchestrated on Saturday Night as he captured his first career feature win. Michaud of Medina, held off Brett Senek in a tightly-contested battle from a lap seven restart all the way to end of the 25-lap event. Early on in that battle it did not appear that Michaud would be able to hold off Senek's No. 111, but down the stretch his chance at his first win became a reality. "I knew Senek was there the whole time. I could hear him and I could tell the flagger wasn't showing me any gap. I could see him peak underneath in turns 3 and 4 but not in 1 and 2," recalled Michaud in Victory Lane. "The car was just good for a while but towards the end it was really good. It's amazing." Senek appeared to follow the tire tracks of the No. 132 in the first set of corners to set up his bids for the lead at the opposite end of the track. Senek nearly took the lead away around halfway but as Michaud improved he would have to settle for second. Kyle Richner had a strong run, winning his heat race and running to a strong third place finish. Cam Tuttle drove up to fourth while Dave Conant rounded out the top five. Bill Taylor strengthened his point lead in the Street Stock Division as he cruised to his fifth feature win of the season. Taylor, of Arcade, jumped out in front of Pat Powers at the drop of the green flag then had to endure a host of restarts over the second half of the race to withstand the valiant efforts made by Brandon Sherwood to steal the win away. It was the sixth runner-up finish this season for Sherwood, who was fast but could not find a line around Taylor's No. 1. Pat Powers was a close third while heat winners Tommy Kemp and Dan Schulz rounded out the top five. The RUSH Pro Mods made their first ever appearance at the Genesee Speedway and put on a tight race for the win. Adam Ashcroft, who ran Sportsman at the track four and five years ago, used his track knowledge to prepare his car to lead wire-to-wire and hold off Steve Dixon to win the 20-lap event. Ashcroft was hanging his No. 6R up on the top of the track and felt his lead was comfortable until Dixon closed in the final five laps and made Ashcroft pound the cushion to claim the $750 top prize. Dixon would settle for second while Tyler Sutton held off heat winner Al Brewer for third. Brodie Hill rounded out the top five. The Mini Stock Feature had a different driver take a stranglehold of a feature as Bill Weller ran off to capture the win by over seven seconds in the 15-lap event. Weller took over the lead on lap four from his teammate Rich Conte and then drove off on a lap six restart to win in impressive fashion in just his third start of the year. Brian Johnson put together his best run of the year, finishing second, just ahead of point leader Brad Whiteside who overcame heavy cosmetic damage to place third. Andy Schumaker and Cole Susice completed the top five. Jake Bansmer put on a clinic in the Novice Sportsman as he jumped out in front of the field from the pole and led all 15 laps to collect his 10th win of the season. The E. Aurora driver had to endure a healthy group of lapped cars halfway through the event but took his time and carefully maneuvered by for a smooth run to the win. Andrew Joy won the heat race and finished in second in the feature while Tyler Guzzardi completed the podium. Alexis Traxler was able to collect her eighth feature win of the season in the Bandit Feature, but she had a host of competitors in search of their first wins who she had to dethrone to take the checkered flag. Traxler chased after newcomer Bryson Hill for the first half of the race, as well as Nicholas Lipome who soared up to take the lead on lap five just before the only caution flag of the event. On the ensuing single-file restart, Traxler was able to move by the speedy Lipome and cruised to the win from there. Seth Johnson drove up to finish in second while Lipome finished in third for his best career finish. Racing returns next Saturday Night, as will the autograph session at intermission. All six weekly divisions will be in competition starting at 6:00 p.m. For more information, visit www.Genesee-Speedway.com.

- Zach Blurton Captures United Rebel Sprint Series Victory at Bullring Nationals Finale
LACROSSE, Kansas (July 31, 2021) - The Drive to Zero POWRi United Rebel Sprint Series Presented by Mel Hambelton Ford Racing saw twenty-one competitors back in action for the Bullring Nationals finale on Saturday. Quinter, Kansas' Zach Blurton cashed in on the $1,000 pay day atop "The Bullring" of Rush County Speedway in LaCrosse, Kansas. Kyler Johnson and Ty Williams led the field to the green for Saturday's 30-lap feature event. Williams rushed to the race lead ahead of JD Johnson and Zach Blurton. Three laps in, Blurton advanced into second with JD Johnson, Luke Cranston, and Kyler Johnson in tow. Much of the first half of the race remained the same top-five runners until trouble ensued for the race leader, Ty Williams, as he was collected in a tangle with two lapped cars. Williams was unable to continue with severe damage. The restart saw more trouble ensue as Gullion and Cranston collected coming to the green. Another restart showed Blurton to continue with the race lead, while Jed Werner and Kyler Johnson began a charge to move into second and third. With five laps remaining, Cranston moved into fifth from the tail of the field. Zach Blurton went on to claim the victory over Jed Werner and Kyler Johnson. Koby Walters and Luke Cranston completed the top-five finishers with the United Rebel Sprint Series. Heat race action was claimed by Luke Cranston, Ty Williams, and JD Johnson. Connor Atkinson took home the Keizer Aluminum Wheels hard-charger award after starting twenty-first and finished ninth. Blurton also took home the Green Mountain Grille furnished by Cates Automotive for being the high point driver for the three race "Rumble at the Bullring" season at Rush County Speedway. Jordan Knight finished second taking home a set of Corn hole boards and bags.

- Kerry Madsen scores second consecutive All Star victory with Knoxville Raceway triumph
KNOXVILLE, Iowa (July 31, 2021) - For the second time in as many nights, the "Madman" Kerry Madsen is a FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event winner, this time finding victory lane at the world-famous Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday, July 31. Lining up third on the 25-lap grid, Madsen's path to victory lane was hard-fought and determined, forced to outduel Sam McGhee Motorsports' Spencer Bayston, as well as KCP Racing's Gio Scelzi. The driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing No. 14 sprint car took command for the first time on lap 16, driving on from third to secure a $7,000 payday, as well as an 11th-career Series victory. "We didn't really know where the predominant lines were going to be," said Madsen in Knoxville Raceway victory lane, pilot of the Rush Truck Centers, Advance Auto Parts, Sage Fruit, Curb Records, Ford Performance, No. 14 sprint car. "It was pretty tricky, and you could gain a spot, and lose a spot. I decided to calm down and just hit the bottom, and we were able to get back by a couple cars. From there we just stayed down there. We probably weren't the best we've been tonight, but it doesn't matter when you get the victory." Bayston, who started from the pole position, led the first 12 circuits of the 25-lap contest, smooth sailing ahead of the field until lap traffic entered the picture on lap eight. It was Bayston's run in with slower cars that allowed Madsen to close in on the leader. The duo battled side-by-side at the line for two consecutive circuits, each scoring in Bayston's favor. Meanwhile, Scelzi gradually entered the picture, powering by Madsen for second on lap 12, all before taking command from Bayston the following circuit. Trying to mimic Scelzi's move, Madsen also scooted by Bayston on lap 13. Switching his primary focus to the bottom of the speedway, Madsen gained momentum and caught the tailtank of Scelzi on lap 16, eventually driving by the KCP Racing entry at the exit of turn two. The main event's first and only caution appeared on lap 18 ultimately ridding the track of traffic; just what Madsen needed. From that point forward, it was the "Madman Show" at the front of the field, withstanding some late-race pressure by Bayston, who snuck back by Scelzi on lap 21. Bayston held on to finish second, followed by Gio Scelzi, Brian Brown, and Rico Abreu. "I felt I was setting a pretty good pace," said Bayston of the early stages of the race. "I kept hearing them behind me, and when you get to traffic, you never know what's going to happen. If you make one slipup, these guys pounce. You have to be on your 'A game,' but I felt we did everything we needed to do...I just needed to race a little better in the traffic. When the track started going away, I had to get the wing back and that hurt me a little on the bottom. I still felt we were a really good car overall." The All Star Circuit of Champions will not return to competition until Friday and Saturday, August 20-21, with a pair of stops at I-96 Speedway in Lake Odessa, Michigan, and Plymouth Speedway in Plymouth, Indiana. The events will award $5,000 and $6,000, respectively.

- Cam Tuttle Captures DIRTcar Sportsman Tour Race while Bill Holmes Locks Up Late Model Win
Rich Vleck, BATAVIA, NY, (July 31, 2021)- An unseasonably cool race night in July saw some of the fastest drivers all season back up in front. All six feature winners were repeat winners for at least the third time. Of course, the night would not be complete without some light sprinkles, which hit the grounds just before racing. It would not deter the action though, as the Terry Pangrazio Memorial was able to be contested unencumbered. One week ago, Cameron Tuttle was out in front and had the fast line working at the top of the track when he got tangled up with a lapped car; on Saturday Night, he got another chance to ride the rim in an even bigger race and made sure he wasn't going to let this one slip away. Tuttle, of Wilson, led all 40 laps to win the DIRTcar Sportsman Western Region Tour race. The defending track champion ran down current point leader Phil Vigneri III in their heat race to win the qualifier, then drew the pole position for the main event, which was all he needed to get out in front and keep it that way to the finish. "I put last week (incident with lapped car) in the past, but I was glad to get a caution when I was in lapped traffic," stated Tuttle after the event. "I think everybody here knows I like the top side and that was the place to be but it was really tight on restarts. Austin (Susice) was really throwing it in on the bottom." It was the third win of the season in Batavia for the defending track champion. Being a $1,000-to-win DIRTcar Sportsman Tour race even added to the prestige. When you add on to it his win a night earlier at Ransomville, his victory on Saturday capped off a perfect weekend. "This was never something I even dreamed about," admitted Tuttle in Victory Lane, after hoisting a broom in recognition of his "sweep" of the weekend. As Tuttle rode the top line perfectly to the win, Austin Susice chased the leader's tire tracks to a solid second-place showing. Susice, last week's feature winner, had one restart in particular he thought he could get by the No. 35T, but that was called back to retry. Behing Susice was Genesee Point Leader Phil Vigneri III, who used the bottom line more than other frontrunners to round out the podium. Robert Bublak Jr. by far made the longest tow on the night, and in his first appearance at the Genesee Speedway finished in fourth in a brand-new racecar. Kyle Richner outdueled Dave Conant throughout the race to notch a top five finish. To round out the night, an intense battle raged for the win in the Late Model Feature. Bill Holmes outdueled Jimmy Johnson for the lead at the start and would never relinquish it as the point leader was able to collect his fourth win of the season. The E. Concord driver used the middle line to lock in his No. 8 to the 1/3-mile and hold a steady distance throughout. Late in the feature, JJ Mazur and Jeremy Wonderling ran down the No. 8 and appeared that one of them would steal the win away. On lap 17 of the 25-lap event, Wonderling took away second from Mazur and set his sights on the top spot as the highside groove he was using appeared to be supreme, but on lap 22, the No. 3J drifted over the banking in turn 3 and would hand the runner-up spot back over to Mazur. As hard as he tried, Mazur would have to settle for second while Wonderling crossed in third. Doug Ricotta and Jon Rivers would complete a fast top five. John Zimmerman made a "sweetheart move" to drive from third to first on a lap five restart and then never looked back as he captured his third Street Stock Feature win of the season. Zimmerman, of Varysburg, dove underneath Brandon Sherwood and leader Dale Rissinger in a wild three-wide move down the backstretch and completed the slide job entering the next set of corners. Once getting out in front, "The Z-man" went up to the top of the track and rode the cushion to perfection. Brandon Sherwood, who had plenty of cosmetic damage throughout the race, was able to reel in the leader on multiple occasions but was unable to set up a pass for the lead and would have to settle for his fifth runner-up finish of the season. Damian Long was able to drive up to a third place finish while Genesee Promoter Jim Johnson finished in fourth while subbing for Shawn Hazlett. Point leader Bill Taylor rounded out the top five after rallying from a tire issue in his heat race. Dante Mancuso scored his fifth win of the season in the Mini Stock Feature. Mancuso, of Batavia, drove up from the seventh starting position to second on lap three when point leader Brad Whiteside broke while in the runner-up spot. On the ensuing restart, Mancuso dove underneath Ashley Harbison to take over the lead. In the closing laps, Bill Weller Jr. came charging up to the front from his ninth place starting position but Mancuso made sure to push his No. 1 a little harder to hang on for the winner. Behind the top two was a fierce battle to the line with Ashley Harbison holding off Olivia Coniber by .009 for third place as the two crashed across the finish. The fourth place effort by Coniber was still good enough for her career-best result. Right behind those two ladies was Ryan Allen to complete the top five. Tyler Guzzardi ran the top line to perfection to capture his third feature win of the season in the Novice Sportsman event. After winning his first heat race of the year, Guzzardi, of Mt. Morris, jumped out in front in the feature and had to stay perfect throughout the 15-lap to withstand the challenges of point leader Jake Bansmer, who kept peaking underneath the No. 7 but would have to settle for second. Allison Dewitt rounded out the podium in third. Alexis Traxler survived two late-race restarts with strong challenges from hard-chargers to score her seventh Bandit Feature win of the season. Traxler, of Warsaw, took the lead at the drop of the green flag and had a comfortable advantage until the first caution flag of the race occurred on lap 8 for Jonathan Logsdon, who was in second place at the time. Ian Paul inherited the second spot but broke a lap after the ensuing restart, which would give Seth Johnson one chance to steal the win away. Johnson would come up just short and settle for second while Morgan Coniber rounded out the top three. The Genesee Speedway will take next weekend off before setting up a four-race sprint to the finish which kicks off on August 14 when the RUSH Pro Mods invade Batavia for the first time.

- Kerry Madsen hard charges from tenth to score All Star victory at 34 Raceway
WEST BURLINGTON, Iowa (July 30, 2021) - It was a long way to the top for the "Madman" Kerry Madsen, but the open wheel veteran out of Knoxville, Iowa, via New South Wales, Australia, made it look effortless on Friday night at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa, ultimately charging ahead nine spots to secure his place in FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory lane. The triumph, Madsen's first of the season with the Series and tenth overall, scored the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing wheelman a $6,000 payday, holding off a late advancement by Clauson Marshall Racing's Tyler Courtney. The nine-spot rally also secured Madsen the evening's Hard Charger Award for advancing the most feature positions. "I just want to thank everyone at Tony Stewart Racing for the opportunity. It's been such a pleasure to drive this thing," Kerry Madsen said, driver of the Rush Truck Centers/Advance Auto Parts/Ford Performance/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/No. 14 sprint car. "The guys work their butts off and give me a fast race car every night. This Ford Performance 410 is unbelievable. I just really love racing it." Despite starting from the inside of row five, Madsen made his presence known rather quickly, utilizing the very bottom of the speedway to power his way to third by lap seven. Continuing his march on the bottom, Madsen eventually maneuvered his way to second, sneaking by Sam McGhee Motorsports' Spencer Bayston on lap 14. Meanwhile, the "Northpole Nightmare" Bill Balog held down the fort, leading the way from the pole position while focusing on 34 Raceway's outer edge. Despite Balog's attempt to outrun his fellow frontrunners, his momentum on the cushion was no match for Madsen's smoothness on the bottom. Lap after lap, Madsen chopped away at Balog's lead, closing the gap to just a car length by lap 18, then pulling even with the B Squared Motorsports entry the following circuit. By the completion of lap 20, Madsen was the new man in charge, using the exit of turn four to propel himself beyond Balog's No. 17B. Tyler Courtney, who followed Madsen passed Balog on lap 22, did his best to dethrone the former Knoxville Raceway track champion, but even with lapped traffic on his side, and a pair of lap 26 cautions keeping the field bunched, the Indianapolis, Indiana-native was no match for the Tony Stewart Racing veteran. Courtney did manage to slip by briefly, but Madsen immediately reclaimed the position, turning back underneath the NOS Turbo No. 7BC. "When he slipped by me, I was able to turn back underneath him. I felt like once we got going and I was able to hit my marks, I was fine," Madsen continued. "I just can't' thank everyone enough. We'll do what we can to do this again tomorrow night." The All Star Circuit of Champions will conclude their Midwest showcase with a visit to the world-famous Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday, July 31. The event, also featuring Knoxville's competitive 360 sprint car class, will award a $7,000 payday. Elk Grove, California's Kyle Larson is the defending All Star Knoxville Raceway winner, outdriving a 13th-starting Rico Abreu and Fresno, California's Gio Scelzi.
