USAC SPRINTS PREPARED FOR 2ND ACT SUNDAY AT I-55
USAC SPRINTS PREPARED FOR 2ND ACT SUNDAY AT I-55 dirt track racing news
Pevely, Missouri (June 1, 2020).........They say first impressions can make a lasting impression. The first impression by the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Cars two years ago at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 was something nobody there would soon forget. It was a barnburner between former roommates Jason McDougal and Kevin Thomas Jr. that saw six lead changes in a 30-lap span, including the final one, with just four laps remaining. Now the time has arrived for the second act by these top-notch racers at the 1/3-mile, high-banked bullring in Pevely, Missouri, and the curtain rises this Sunday, June 7, as part of a doubleheader weekend with the series competing at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa the night before on Saturday, June 6. Buy Tickets Here: http://usactickets.com Cullman, Alabama's Thomas is up for a little bit of redemption this time around after winning his heat race, leading a total of 12 laps, and up until four laps remaining, during the feature and finishing second in the 2018 round. The Daigh-Phillips Motorsports machine, with which McDougal won his heat, led five laps and raced to victory at I-55 two seasons ago, is now wheeled by Marion, Ill. driver Carson Short, who will make his USAC debut at the track. Robert Ballou, the Rocklin, Calif. native and 2015 USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car champion, is returning to USAC after missing the past year due to a serious arm injury suffered in a Sprint Car accident at Kokomo (Ind.) Speedway. Ballou set the standard at I-55 in his 2018 heat race, establishing a USAC track record for 8-laps at 1:44.38 before finishing 3rd in the feature. Fort Branch, Indiana's Chase Stockon led early in the 2018 affair at I-55, controlling 11 laps early, the two more during mid-race to lead a race-high 13 laps total before, ultimately, finishing 9th. Korey Weyant, great nephew of National Midget Hall of Famer and four-time Indianapolis 500 starter Chuck Weyant, was the hard charger at I-55 in 2018, rising up to drive from 18th to 10th in the final tally. Fourteen of the 22 starters from 2018 are pre-entered for this Sunday's event, including top-five finisher Justin Grant (Ione, Calif.), a recent USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget winner at Port City Raceway in Tulsa, Okla. on May 23. Defending USAC AMSOIL National Sp int Car champ C.J. Leary (Greenfield, Ind.) took 6th, USAC Triple Crown champion Dave Darland (Lincoln, Ind.) 7th, 2017 USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car titlist Chris Windom (Canton, Ill.) was 8th, 2016 series Rookie of the Year Isaac Chapple (Willow Branch, Ind.) and 2014 & 2016 USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car champ Brady Bacon (Broken Arrow, Okla.) notched 20th. In 2018, Mario Clouser (Auburn, Ill.) was 12th, Jadon Rogers (Worthington, Ind.) was 13th, Patrick Budde (Bartelso, Ill.) was 16th and Mitch Wissmiller (Saybrook, Ill.) 22nd. All are entered for this Sunday's race. Sunday's I-55 event will mark the 22nd visit to the Show Me State for the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Cars, dating to Gary Bettenhausen's victory in 1970 at I-70 Speedway in Odessa. Four-time USAC National Sprint Car champion Steve Butler leads all drivers with three victories. Tony Stewart won two, including his first career USAC win in 1992 at I-44 Speedway in Lebanon. Meanwhile, each garnering one career USAC National Sprint feature win in the great state of Missouri are Bob Cicconi, Eric Gordon, Gary Bettenhausen, Gene Lee Gibson, Jack Hewitt, Jason McDougal, Jeff Swindell, Jerry Coons Jr., Jon Stanbrough, Josh Wise, Levi Jones, Rich Vogler, Robert Ballou, Sheldon Kinser, Tony Elliott and Tyler Courtney.

THE WAIT IS OVER: USAC SPRINTS SATURDAY AT 34 RACEWAY
THE WAIT IS OVER: USAC SPRINTS SATURDAY AT 34 RACEWAY dirt track racing news
West Burlington, Iowa (June 1, 2020).........One-hundred-twelve days. That's the wait we've all had to endure since the last time the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Cars turned a wheel in competition when the series unloads this Saturday night, June 6, for Sonny's Market Night at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa, the grand opening of a doubleheader weekend with a trip to Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 the following night, Sunday, June 7. Only twice before has the series visited the 3/8-mile dirt oval at 34 Raceway, both of which came within the last decade. Numerous drivers in this Saturday's 44-car field have previous experience at the West Burlington track, in those two events as well as a USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget event there in 2010, with some finding a fair amount of success. USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Point leader Brady Bacon (Broken Arrow, Okla.) is undefeated thus far with the series, winning both of the first two events in Ocala, Fla. during the month of February and leads the standings. Bacon led the first 13 laps of the 2013 30-lap main event at West Burlington, but a broken rear axle suffered while leading relegated the 2014 and 2016 champ to a 19th place finish. Chris Windom has been close, but no cigar, in both of his USAC Sprint starts at West Burlington. The Canton, Ill. native who resides second in the points, won his heat in 2010, but finished 2nd in the feature behind Levi Jones in 2010 and was the runner-up to Darland in 2013. Justin Grant, a recent USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget victor at Tulsa, Oklahoma's Port City Raceway on May 23, owns a pair of West Burlington top-ten results. The Ione, Calif. driver finished 6th in 2010 and a best of 4th in 2013. Fort Branch, Indiana's Chase Stockon made his lone appearance at West Burlington in 2013, winning his heat and placing 6th in the A-Main. Perhaps no driver has had as much success across the board with USAC at West Burlington over the past decade than has USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car division's winningest driver (62), Dave Darland. The National Sprint Car Hall of Famer out of Lincoln, Ind. led the first 20 laps in 2010 before a tire issue forced him back to 10th at the checkered. In 2013, he returned as fast qualifier, then won the feature, leading the final 17 laps of the 30-lapper. To boot, Darland also recorded fast time in a USAC Midget there in 2010 before finishing 8th in the feature. To put a stamp on it, Darland possesses both the USAC Sprint (14.554) and USAC Midget track records at West Burlington (15.726). Also in that 2010 USAC Midget race at West Burlington who are also entered for this Saturday's showdown, this time in a Sprint Car, are Zach Daum (Pocahontas, Ill.) who finished an impressive 2nd that night, as well as Mario Clouser (Auburn, Ill.), a 6th place finisher that evening. Among the others who've made just one previous USAC Sprint appearance at West Burlington were Cullman, Alabama's Kevin Thomas Jr. (9th in 2013), Rocklin, California's Robert Ballou (5th in 2013) and Ludlow, Illinois' Steve Thomas (13th in 2013). Terry Babb (Decatur, Ill.) had a career-best USAC night at West Burlington in 2010, recording fast qualifying time and finishing 5th in the feature. Patrick Budde (Bartelso, Ill.) was 16th the same night. Ballou makes his return to USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car racing for the West Burlington event after being sidelined for nearly a year following a broken arm suffered during a sprint car crash at Kokomo (Ind.) Speedway. The 2015 USAC Sprint champ and 29-time feature winner last competed with USAC at Port Royal (Pa.) Speedway in mid-June of 2019. Among those making their West Burlington USAC debuts are C.J. Leary (Greenfield, Ind.), who is back behind the wheel of the family-owned No. 30 after competing in the first two events for Gene Gile Racing. Logan Seavey (Sutter, Calif.), the 2018 USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget champion is preparing for his first West Burlington USAC ride, as is Carson Short (Marion, Ill.) for Daigh-Phillips Motorsports, the team which won there in 2013 with driver Dave Darland and top series Rookie Anton Hernandez (Arlington, Texas), among several others. Grandstand ticket sales are now live for the June 6 race at 34 Raceway at https://market.myracepass.com/store/tickets/?i=1208706&store=12037.

BAPS Motor Speedway - Saturday, May 30, 2020 Race Release
BAPS Motor Speedway - Saturday, May 30, 2020 Race Release dirt track racing news
YORK HAVEN, Pa.: Kenny Edkin indicated that he was getting used to staying home on the weekends and didn't know if he wanted to come race. It didn't look like that way during Saturday's BAPS Super Sportsman Season Opener at BAPS Motor Speedway. In fact, it looked like Edkin was in mid-season form and didn't miss a beat from last season. Edkin beat Frankie Herr to the front in the 25-lap main event and sped away to the victory by a healthy 3.198 seconds over the field. The win comes on the heels of a nine-win season and track championship. "We didn't quite finish 2019 the way we wanted to," Edkin said. "I feel like we gave a win away the last race of the year in the Dirty 30, and I really dwelled on it a lot this Winter. "We did a lot of testing at the beginning of the season before even going to race. Who though we would be having a season opener at the end of May? I was enjoying my semi-retirement, but we are back now, and it's game on 110 percent." A fierce battle between pole-sitter Craig Morrow and Mike Enders developed over the first few circuits. Morrow got the early advantage, with Enders taking the lead on Lap 2 and opening a .356-second lead. The first caution came on Lap 5. Matt Ondek, who started third and was running fourth, rolled to a stop on the speedway. Edkin, who started fifth and struggled early, took advantage of the restart. He disposed of ninth-place starting Frankie Herr and Morrow to take second at the completion of Lap 6. But, Enders was setting a pretty good pace. He held a .543-second lead with 10 laps to go before Edkins closed. Edkin made the winning pass on the 16th circuit. The defending speedway champion got a good run through the third and fourth corner and blasted around the leader at the flagstand. "I wasn't really sure what was going on with the car the first five laps," Edkin said. "I just couldn't roll very well. I couldn't get the right rear under me, and because the right rear wasn't under me, the left rear wasn't underneath me. "It took a while to figure out what the car needed. Frank rolled by me, there, and showed me the middle. So, I started rolling the middle, and the car started getting really good." And it kept getting better. Edkin dominated the last nine laps of the event and was never challenged. Herr took second from Enders on Lap 20, but he was forced to settle for second. Russ Mitten charged from 16th to fourth, with Scott Dellinger completing the top five. "Once I got to clean air, I was able to roll the bottom like I did the middle and run where I needed to," Edkin said. "Sometimes, I questioned if I was still shape enough to do it. I think I blew through the corner and missed the bottom only once, so I'm pretty pleased." Herr, Chase Gutshall, and Dellinger were heat winners for the 23-car field. Troy Miller started on the outside pole and collected the victory in the 20-lap Creekside Auto Sales Limited Late Model main. D.J. Mease got the jump on Miller at the start and led the first five laps. Miller stalked the leader and took the top spot away on Lap 6. From there, Miller led the rest of the way. Chase Billet got around Mease for second and stayed there. Mease, Joey Hoffer, and D.J. Groff completed the top five. Billet, Miller, and Mease were heat winners for the 24-car field. In the Mike's Towing and Recovery and Frankie's Used Auto Parts Street Stock division, Jasen Geesaman took the season opener. Greg Diehl jumped out front to start the 20-lap event. Geesaman, who started fifth made his way toward the front in short order and took the lead on Lap 7. Geesaman never wavered and took the win. Will Walls, Ryan Smith, Diehl, and Brian Walls completed the top five. Kody Sites, Diehl, and Chris Derr were heat winners for the 21-car Street Stock field. Former 410 Sprint Car driver Austin Hogue earned the win in the Superior Homes Extreme Stock feature event. Hogue started on the outside pole and survived multiple restarts to hold off Donnie Broderick for the 20-lap score. Michael Goodwin, Patrick McClane, and Scott Arnold completed the top five in the 15-car field. Broderick and McClane were heat winners on the evening.

Busy Lucas Oil Speedway week opens with Wednesday Night Madness featuring USMTS, USRA Iron Man Stock Cars
Busy Lucas Oil Speedway week opens with Wednesday Night Madness featuring USMTS, USRA Iron Man Stock Cars dirt track racing news
WHEATLAND, Missouri (June 1, 2020) - Lucas Oil Speedway fires up a busy week of racing with its first Wednesday Night Madness featuring the USMTS Modifieds and USRA Iron Man Stock Cars. "We know our fans always look forward to seeing the USMTS Modifieds and we're excited to bring them in for this special, along with the USRA Iron Man Stock Cars appearing here for the first time," Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Danny Lorton said. "It's going to be a fun night of racing before we turn our attention back to the Weekly Racing Series on Saturday." The USMTS annually appears at Lucas Oil Speedway each August with the 11th annual USMTS Slick Mist Show-Me Shootout Presented by Foley Equipment set for Aug. 8. In an effort to make up for lost races this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this extra appearance at Wheatland came about. Through six USMTS events in 2020, Rodney Sanders of Happy, Texas, leads the championship standings. The 30-year-old Sanders has 99 career USMTS feature wins and three series championships. Sanders leads Derek Ramirez of Woodward, Oklahoma, by 14 points with multi-time series champ Jason Hughes of Westville, Oklahoma, 39 behind. Among those to watch on Wednesday will be Terry Phillips of Springfield. Phillips dropped into Lucas Oil Speedway last Saturday to prepare and scored a comfortable victory in the Pitts Homes USRA Modified main event. Also expected to be on hand is former NASCAR driver and long-time dirt-track competitor Ken Schrader of St. Louis. The Wheatland event will kick off a four-race swing for the USMTS drivers, with stops June 4 at 81 Speedway (Park City, Kansas), June 5 at Humboldt Speedway (Humboldt, Kansas) and June 6 at Tri-State Speedway (Pocola, Oklahoma). Additional details about series, including schedules, point standings and archived news, can be found at USMTS.com and USRAracing.com. Gates on June 3 are scheduled to open at 4 p.m. with hot laps at 7 p.m. and racing at 7:35 p.m. Ticket prices: Adults (16 and over): $20 Seniors (62 and over)/Military: $17 Youth (ages 6-15): $10 Kids (5 and under): FREE Family Pass: $50 Pit Pass: $40 Camping: Reserved with Electric and Water - $35 per night (Limited Availability) Reserved Dry Spots - $20 per night (Limited Availability) Dry Camping - $10 per night Weekly Racing Series resumes Saturday: TA/Petro along with ThunderBurst Media presents Round 4 of the Big Adventure RV Weekly Racing Series on Saturday. The Ozark Golf Cars USRA B-Mods will headline the action with a 25-lap, $750-to-win feature. The points race in the B-Mod division is a tight one as 16-year-old Dillon McCowan of Urbana is two points in front of defending champion Kris Jackson and 15 ahead of last week's feature winner JC Morton. Things also are close in the Warsaw Auto Marine & RV ULMA Late Models as Willard's Kaeden Cornell holds a five-point lead over Cole Henson. Johnny Fennewald, who has won the last two features, sits 12 points behind Cornell. Defending Pitts Homes USRA Modified champion Robbie Reed is off to a strong start with a feature win and two top-five finishes and holds a 42-point lead over Ryan Middaugh. The most-dominant performer so far in 2020 has been Derek Brown of Stoutland, who has captured all three O'Reilly Auto Parts Street Stocks features. Brown has a 31-point lead over Toby Ott and is 46 in front of Cody Frazon. Gates are scheduled to open at 4 p.m. Saturday with hot laps at 6:30 and opening ceremonies at 7.
