Pokorski Motorsports eyes strong end to 2019 season
Pokorski Motorsports eyes strong end to 2019 season dirt track racing news
(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) September 17, 2019 - Following a 15th-place showing in Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Car competition on Saturday, Sept. 14, Paul Pokorski and the members of his Pokorski Motorsports team are looking forward to closing out the 2019 campaign on a high note with a Midwest Sprint Car Association doubleheader weekend at the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam, Wis. on Friday, Sept. 27 and The Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, Sept. 28. Pokorski was among 28 PDTR 360 Sprint Car drivers signing in to do battle in the second-to-last race of the 2019 season at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, Sept. 14. The 2014 Midwest Sprint Car Association Masters Series champion lined up third in the fourth PDTR 360 Sprint Car heat race and dropped back to fourth in the running order on the opening lap as Ben Schmidt slipped past. On lap 3, Shane Wenninger worked around Pokorski to drop the blue No. 4 machine to fifth. Three laps later, Pokorski gained back one spot as he worked the low groove to move past Schmidt into fourth place, which is where he finished. After failing to make the top-16 heat race passing point qualifiers for the A main, Pokorski lined up on the pole for the 12-lap B main. Ben Schmidt got the jump on the opening lap to take the lead, while Pokorski settled into second. The West Bend driver held the runner-up spot throughout the remaining laps to earn a spot in the evening's 25-lap A main. Pokorski rolled off from the 18th starting spot in the A main and hovered around 19th through the majority of the early portion of the event. After a red flag for a flip involving race leader Travis Arenz in turn four on lap 23, Pokorski restarted 17th. Pokorski gained a few more spots when a caution flag was displayed on lap 24 when Justin Miller hit the turn three wall. The 27th-year driver restarted 15th and held the spot during a green-white-checkered flag finish to take 15th in the race, which was won by Adam Miller. "The car was good in hot laps and got mysteriously tight in the heat race," Pokorski said. "That hurt our finish. We made good changes for the B main and the car was pretty good. I thought the feature finish was disappointing given how well the B went, but starting 18th on a fast racetrack is hard. The MSA has a lot of good cars so it's always hard and starting back that far makes it harder for sure." The Pokorski Motorsports team will close out the 2019 season with a pair of MSA events during the weekend of Sept. 27-28. On Friday, Sept. 27, the team will compete in the first annual Fuzzy Fassbender Memorial at the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam. Wis. The event will also feature the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series, as well as A Modifieds and B Modifieds. Hot laps will begin at 6 p.m. followed by qualifying and racing at 7 p.m. The 2019 campaign will conclude on Saturday, Sept. 28 at The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. with an all-Sprint Car program dubbed the Wisconsin Sprint Car Championships featuring the MSA 360 Sprint Cars, IRA 410 Sprint Cars, Wisconsin Wingless Sprint Cars and IRA Lightning Sprint Cars. Hot laps will begin at 5 p.m. followed by qualifying and racing at 6 p.m. "I'm looking forward to the two-night conclusion to the year," Pokorski said. "I've learned to love Dodge County and it will be nice to honor local racing hero and Hall of Famer Fuzzy Fassbender on that night. Then wrapping up the season with a big night of all Sprint Cars at Plymouth should be awesome. I can't believe 2019 is almost in the books." Sponsors for the 2019 Pokorski Motorsports team are Hopf Farms, Petersen Septic Systems, Gasroots Project, Quest Engineering Inc., Acme Armature Works Inc., Goeden's Auto Body, Goodwin Racing Engines, Lakeshore Family Funeral Homes, Kettle Moraine Landscaping, Novak's Service Center, Pedal Down Promotions, Tisler Salvage Inc., Hagar's Half-Pounder Cookies, Allied Bearing Corporation and The Cawley Company.

38 ENTRIES FOR SUNDAY'S BETTENHAUSEN 100
38 ENTRIES FOR SUNDAY'S BETTENHAUSEN 100 dirt track racing news
Springfield, Illinois (September 17, 2019).........The entry list for Sunday's 58th running of the Bettenhausen 100 presented by Brandt has been revealed with 38 USAC Silver Crown Champ Car drivers and teams ready to take on the legendary Springfield mile at the Illinois State Fairgrounds. Five past Bettenhausen 100 winners are entered for the Sunday afternoon race. Among them is Chris Windom (Canton, Ill.), who enters as the defending winner of the Bettenhausen 100 en route to a sweep of both Illinois dirt mile races on the schedule in 2018. The two most recent drivers to go back-to-back at Springfield include A.J. Fike (Galesburg, Ill.) won consecutive runnings of the Bettenhausen 100 in both 2012-13 just as point leader Kody Swanson (Kingsburg, Calif.) did in 2014-15. Russ Gamester (Peru, Ind.) prepares for his 26th career start in the race, which ranks 3rd all-time and includes a triumph in 1998. Justin Grant (Ione, Calif.) captured the first of his two career USAC Silver Crown Champ Car Series victories in 2017 at Springfield. A handful of drivers have gotten the job done on the Land of Lincoln's other dirt mile, the Du Quoin State Fairgrounds, but are seeking their first Springfield victories. Two-time Du Quoin Silver Crown winner Shane Cockrum (Benton, Ill.), plus another pair of past Du Quoin Mile winners in Shane Cottle (Kansas, Ill.) and Chris Urish (Elkhart, Ill.) are up to the task. Jeff Swindell (Germantown, Tenn.) is a three-time Silver Crown winner on dirt miles, twice at the Indiana State Fairgrounds and once at Du Quoin, but Springfield has eluded him thus far despite three 3rd place finishes in 1992-1993-2017. Springfieldian Korey Weyant wowed fans with a high-wire ride on the cushion in the qualifying race at Springfield a year ago and joined by fellow Illinoisans Patrick Lawson (Edwardsville, Ill.), a 29th place finisher in 2018, and Terry Babb (Decatur, Ill.), who took 31st in 2018, are ready to make an impression for the home crowd. On the two occasions the Silver Crown cars graced a one-mile dirt oval this year, Tyler Courtney (Indianapolis, Ind.) was the victor in May's Hoosier Hundred at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. He led a race-high 49 laps last year at Springfield. Jacob Wilson (Crawfordsville, Ind.) won the most recent dirt event in a stellar performance for his first career series win at Du Quoin. He came home a strong 4th at Springfield a year ago. Brady Bacon (Broken Arrow, Okla.) has also won on the dirt this year, taking a wild last-lap victory at Pennsylvania's Williams Grove Speedway in June for his first career win in a Crown car. His Klatt Enterprises team holds a slim 15-point lead over Nolen Racing in the owner standings for the season. Veteran Silver Crown winners seeking their first mile dirt victories on Sunday include C.J. Leary Greenfield, Ind., a two-time series winner seeking his first dirt mile victory. David Byrne (Shullsburg, Wisc.) finished 10th at Springfield a year ago. John Heydenreich (Bloomsburg, Pa.) and Eric Gordon (Fortville, Ind.) will each return to Springfield after lengthy absences, Heydenreich (2007) and Gordon (2003). Kevin Thomas, Jr. (Cullman, Ala.) led 42 laps and finished 2nd in 2018 at Springfield. Steve Buckwalter (Royersford, Pa.) finished 5th at Springfield in 2015. Those veterans are joined by 2018 Bettenhausen 100 top-ten finishers, New Castle, Indiana's Kyle Robbins (6th) and Sylvania, Ohio's Austin Nemire (8th), all of whom are gunning for their first career Silver Crown wins. Mike Haggenbottom (Levittown, Pa.) is 8th in the standings and enters his second Bettenhausen 100 run after starting 20th and finishing 12th a year ago. Matt Goodnight (Winchester, Ind.) stands 12th in points and is coming off his best run of the year in the most recent dirt race, a 10th at Du Quoin. Ohio's Matt Westfall will make his Silver Crown season debut Sunday at Springfield, which will mark the 2005 Eldora USAC Sprint winner's first start at Springfield since 2009 and his first Silver Crown appearance anywhere since 2013.

WILSON GOES FOR ILLINOIS DIRT MILE SWEEP SUNDAY AT SPRINGFIELD
WILSON GOES FOR ILLINOIS DIRT MILE SWEEP SUNDAY AT SPRINGFIELD dirt track racing news
Springfield, Illinois (September 17, 2019).........Once you win one, you just can't stop. That's been the mantra for several drivers over the years who've tamed both the Du Quoin and Springfield miles in a single year. This Sunday, September 22, in the 58th running of the Bettenhausen 100 at the Illinois State Fairgrounds, Jacob Wilson aims to join an illustrious group of drivers who've scored AAA/USAC Champ Car victories within a single calendar year at both Illinois venues. Wilson (Crawfordsville, Ind.) dominated the Ted Horn 100 at Du Quoin at the beginning of September, leading the final 59 laps to capture his first career USAC Silver Crown Champ Car Series victory. Prior to that, the feat of doubling up in the Land of Lincoln has been accomplished on 22 occasions by 15 different drivers and was done as recently as 2018 when Chris Windom (Canton, Ill.) conquered both, leading a total of just 15 laps combined in his winning efforts. Tony Bettenhausen was the first to win at both Springfield and Du Quoin back in 1951. He has the unique aspect of winning three between the two tracks that year, winning once at Springfield in August, then swept the Labor Day Champ Car weekend at Du Quoin, winning both Saturday's Ted Horn Memorial and Monday's Du Quoin 100. Tony's son, Gary, followed his father's footsteps to an Illinois mile track sweep in 1983. Bettenhausen was one of four drivers to achieve the Springfield/Du Quoin sweep in the 1950s, followed by Sam Hanks (1953), Jimmy Bryan (1955-56) and Johnny Thomson (1958). Supertex A.J. Foyt carried the torch into the decade of the 1960s and, like Bryan, did the deed twice in both 1964 and 1967, the same seasons he earned his second and third Indianapolis 500 victories, respectively. Al Unser won Indy, Springfield and Du Quoin all within the same year in 1970 aboard Vel's Parnelli Jones' striking Johnny Lightning Special. Mario Andretti went back-to-back as Unser's Vel's Parnelli Jones teammate in 1973 and 1974 at Springfield and Du Quoin. Just three weeks following his champ car victory at Du Quoin, Andretti, the eventual World Driving Champion in 1978, finished 7th in the Canadian Grand Prix at Mosport in Formula One Grand Prix competition. Only two drivers have swept Springfield and Du Quoin in the same season on three different occasions. Jack Hewitt went back-to-back at both in 1986-87 where he put a stranglehold on the dirt, winning eight of 13 across a two-year span on the dirt portion of the Silver Crown schedule in his two championship seasons. Chuck Gurney notched three seasons of one-mile Illinois sweeps, first during his championship year of 1989 in the meticulous Junior Kurtz owned machine, followed by two more years of Illinoisan domination by the Californian in 1994 and 1996. Paul White and J.J. Yeley swept Springfield and Du Quoin during their Silver Crown championship years as well in 2001 and 2002, respectively. Tracy Hines, who, like Yeley, went on to become a USAC Triple Crown champion, celebrated in victory lane at both venues in 2006. Brian Tyler has five combined triumphs at Springfield (4) and Du Quoin (1). In 2008, his Bettenhausen 100 score at Springfield came in tandem with his lone win at Du Quoin two weeks later. Wilson's opportunity awaits this Sunday. Some may have seen his Du Quoin performance as a startling revelation. However, he's shown year-after-year his growth into a sure-footed competitor on the dirt miles. He started 10th and finished 4th last year at Springfield, stormed from 31st to 11th in 2017, started 5th in 2015 and began the 100-miler from the front row in 2014. By winning at Du Quoin, Wilson joined an amazing list of some of the who's who of Champ Car racing going back six decades. The same can be said for Springfield, whose heritage dates to 1934 with AAA. Getting both in one year would elevate him into a stratosphere known only to a few individuals. That opportunity awaits him this Sunday. Sunday's Bettenhausen 100 in Springfield gets underway with pits opening and registration starting at 7am (Central), the ticket office and grandstands opening at 9am, the drivers meeting at 9:30am, Silver Crown practice from 10am to 11:10am, DIRTcar Modified hot laps at 11:15am, Fatheadz Silver Crown Qualifying at 11:35am, Silver Crown Qualifying Race at 12:30pm, Modified feature at 1pm, pre-race ceremonies at 1:30pm and the Bettenhausen 100-mile race at 2pm. Tickets will be available on raceday or by calling the State Fair office at 217-782-1979. Info and tickets can also be obtained by calling the Track Enterprises office at 217-764-3200. Advance Tickets (Presale) are $25 for adults and $10 for children 11 and under. On race day, tickets are $30 for adults and $10 for children 11 and under. Infield tickets are $20 for adults and $5 for children 11 and under. Pit passes are $35 for adults and $20 for children 11 and under. This Sunday's Springfield race can be watched LIVE and on-demand on FloRacing, listened to via live audio on the USAC app as well as live timing and scoring on both the USAC app and the Race-Monitor app. WON AAA/USAC CHAMP CAR RACES AT BOTH SPRINGFIELD AND Du QUOIN IN SAME SEASON: 1951: Tony Bettenhausen 1953: Sam Hanks 1955: Jimmy Bryan 1956: Jimmy Bryan 1958: Johnny Thomson 1964: A.J.

Lucas Oil Speedway Spotlight: Kory Schudy looks for more Wheatland success at Hockett-McMillin Memorial
Lucas Oil Speedway Spotlight: Kory Schudy looks for more Wheatland success at Hockett-McMillin Memorial dirt track racing news
WHEATLAND, Missouri (September 17, 2019) - Kory Schudy rolls into the 9th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial looking to add to an already-successful first season on the POWRi WAR Sprint Series, which included a feature win back in May at the Open Wheel Showdown at Lucas Oil Speedway. "That was big. It gave us confidence right out of the box and going back to Lucas to end the season," said Schudy, who hails from Springfield. "Hopefully, we can have another good run." The Hockett-McMillin Memorial features the Lucas Oil ASCS Winged Sprint Cars and POWRi WAR Sprints in one of open-wheel's crown jewels. Full programs for the ASCS Winged Sprints are set for Thursday and Friday, paying $3,000 to win the features and helping set the field for Saturday's $10,000-to-win feature. The WAR Sprints will be split with half running on Thursday and half on Friday. Drivers will be competing for points every time they hit the track to gather points for Saturday, when the feature will pay $3,077. The features on Thursday and Friday will pay $1,377 to win. Schudy will be in the Thursday portion of the preliminaries, looking to set himself up for another chance to win at Lucas Oil Speedway in 2019. He said there are few more meaningful events in the open-wheel world than this one, which honors the late Hockett, a star in both the winged and non-winged sprint divisions when he lost his life in a shop accident in 2010. His cousin and crew chief, Daniel McMillin, was killed in an automobile accident in 2006. "Those guys were as good as you can get," Schudy said of Hockett and McMillin. "Just having the opportunity to be in this race this year is big for me. If we could run good enough on our preliminary night to set us up for Saturday, just to have a chance to win it ... that would be the biggest race of my career." Schudy, 33, is a second-generation open-wheel racer. His dad, Pat Schudy, still races Midgets on occasion. A large contingent of family and fans cheered his win at Wheatland earlier this year. "It's kind of in our blood," Kory Schudy said of the appeal of this form of racing. "We grew up and became fans of it at an early age. You can't get away from it once you become a part of it. "It's so exciting. You know that one wrong move usually doesn't end up very well for the race car. So it brings a different element to it, I think." Schudy began racing micro-sprints as a teen "then I took a break through my 20s and got back into it when my dad started running Midgets again." Driving for Jon Sawyer Racing, the 33-year-old Schudy finished up the points portion of the WAR schedule just 11 points behind Warsaw's Riley Kreisel. While he said it's agonizing to just miss earning a championship, Schudy called it a great year. The partnership with Sawyer to run a full WAR Sprint schedule came about during last winter's Chili Bowl Nationals. "He was looking for a driver and I was kind of looking to race more full time than on a hit-and-miss basis," Schudy said. "Timing was the key and it worked out from there. I ran for him four or five years in Midgets and this is the first year for me in the Sprint car." In 15 WAR Sprint features, Schudy has two wins, 10 top-five finishes and 13 top 10s. It took a near-flawless season from Kreise to keep Schudy from the championship. "We're happy with it," he said of the season, "though we're competitive and wanted to win (the championship). Overall, we've had a great season and we're looking forward to this weekend." For more information on the series, including full schedules and point standings, visit ASCSracing.com or POWRi.com.
