Austin Pierce claims second consecutive Buffalo Wild Wings Blazin' Challenge victory dirt track racing news
GRAND FORKS, N.D. (September 16, 2020) - The Buffalo Wild Wings NOSA Sprints had 21 cars for 30-laps in the sixth annual Buffalo Wild Wings Blazin' Challenge. Six qualified drivers took their shot at starting at the back of the field for bonus money. An extra $2,900 was up for grabs if either Jade Hastings or Jordan Adams could win from the back row. For the eighth time this season, Austin Pierce visited RydellCars.com Victory Lane and raced to his second streak of three wins in-a-row. The race began with Shane Roemeling driving around front row starters Tim Estenson and Nick Omdahl to lead the opening circuit. Roemeling led until the lap 12 restart when Omdahl took the point as Brendan Mullen followed him into second. Picture Austin Pierce takes the checkered flag just before 2:00am in front of the River Cities faithful on Friday night. The red was displayed on lap 14 as Jack Croaker got upside down on the front stretch. Croaker was okay. He was running in the sixth position at the time from the 18th starting spot. Mullen was running in the second spot until he slid off the top of the banking in turn two to bring out the yellow. On the restart, contact with another driver sent Mullen upside down on the front stretch, ending his night. He was okay. Austin Pierce restarted in the second spot but took the lead from Omdahl as the race resumed. Lee Grosz, who had to start at the tail of the field after spinning on the first lap, ran third in his 360c.i. motor. Pierce checked out and claimed his eighth win of the season at the Bullring as Omdahl, Hastings, Grosz, and Roemeling rounded out the top five. Picture Lee Grosz (4J), Brendan Mullen (11M) and Austin Pierce (2A) race for position inside the top five during Friday's feature at River Cities Speedway. "I knew I had my work cut out for me starting 10th, but I also knew the guys taking the back row challenge would be coming as well," continued Pierce. "We got the top working pretty well and sailed around there. I went to the bottom of (turns) one and two on a restart and was able to get by Omdahl." The NOSA feature finished just before 2:00am as the night began with a nearly three-hour rain delay. "I'm glad we stuck it out through the rain. Just before we were about to get going, I honestly didn't want to be at the track anymore, but the track did a great job and gave us a really nice racing surface. Hats off to the track guys and all the fans for sticking it out."

Walter cranks out second straight IRA top-10 at Outagamie Speedway
Walter cranks out second straight IRA top-10 at Outagamie Speedway dirt track racing news
(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) September 16, 2020 - It may have taken a little while to fire them up, but Josh Walter and the Torque Racing team appears to be hitting on all cylinders in Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series action. The 16th-year Plymouth Wis. competitor backed up a strong seventh-place A-main showing at the Dodge County Fairgrounds "horsepower half mile" in Beaver Dam, Wis. on Sept. 4 by notching a solid ninth-place main event finish at Outagamie Speedway Powered by EWSC Racing in Seymour, Wis. on Friday, Sept. 11 to tally the team's second consecutive top-10 finish in IRA action. Walter opened the event by ripping off a qualifying lap of 11.859 seconds to finish fourth out of the 22 cars to take a qualifying circuit around the third-mile clay oval. After starting third in the first 10-lap IRA heat race, Walter drifted high in turn one of the lightning fast racing surface to fall back to fourth in the running order as Jordan Goldesberry slipped past on the opening lap. On lap 2, Robbie Pribnow moved by to drop Walter to fifth, which is where he finished the race. Walter then drew the third starting position in the second four-lap dash and held the spot throughout the race to secure the sixth starting spot in the 30-lap IRA A main. Despite a light rain, which had moved over the track after the completion of the second IRA dash, the IRA main event rolled off with Walter starting from the outside of the third row. After Jordan Goldesberry and Joey Moughan moved past, Walter completed the first lap in eighth place in the running order. On lap 3, the red flag appeared when Bryce Schmitt flipped in turn three. After restarting ninth, Walter held his position until a yellow flag came out on lap 5 when Joey Moughan spun in turn four. Walter restarted eighth and briefly took over seventh when Jeremy Schultz jumped the cushion in turn four turn on lap 12. Two laps later, Schultz battled back to duck under Walter in turn four to move Walter back to eighth. As the leaders started to work their way through lapped traffic, Scott Biertzer charged in to seize eighth and drop Walter back to ninth on lap 27. Walter held the ninth spot over the final three circuits to secure his second top-10 A-main finish of the 2020 season in a race won by Hunter Schuerenberg. Walter and Torque Racing team are set to take the upcoming weekend off, before returning to action for a Bumper to Bumper IRA Sprint Car Series doubleheader at the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam on Friday, Sept. 25 and The Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, Sept. 26.
