Hungry Sanders goes back for seconds at Masters
Hungry Sanders goes back for seconds at Masters dirt track racing news
NEW RICHMOND, Wis. (June 12)--Fans and competitors alike took full advantage of a second straight night of stellar weather from Mother Nature and rolled out another exciting show Friday during Round 2 of the 22nd Annual Masters at the Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wis. Another field of 59 entries were on hand to battle for the $5,000 top prize for the Summit USMTS National Championship fueled by Casey's. Sybesma Graphics Pole Award winner Jake Timm took control of the race when the green light lit up and continued to set a fast pace through the first ten laps when he began to deal with lapped traffic. The first back-marker he encountered was his last, however, as contact resulted in a right front flat tire for the second-generation racer. He slowed and headed to the pits as the race's first caution waved. Terry Phillips, who won last year's Friday night feature at the Masters, assumed the top spot when the field returned to racing with Thursday night's winner, Rodney Sanders, following in second ahead of Jacob Bleess and Michael Truscott. Five more cautions slowed the 40-lap main event but Phillips, Sanders and, eventually, Jake O'Neil put on a show for the fans throughout the contest. O'Neil slipped past Sanders after a lap-22 restart and had just snuck past Phillips two laps later when the last yellow of the race waved and saved Phillips for the time being. Phillips and Sanders took off from the rest of the pack with ten laps remaining and sailed off to settle it between themselves. After Phillips pulled away slightly, Sanders began to reel the veteran racer back in. With five laps to go he pulled alongside Phillips and best him to the line to lead the 35th lap. He wouldn't give it up after that. "I think (Phillips) had a little better car but it started rubbering up there on the bottom and I kind of found it before he did," Sanders said. "We had a good car before them yellows-I just couldn't really take off on them yellows-but once we had a good green flag run the car was good." Good enough for a $5,000 payday and career win number 102, leaving him just one win away from tying Ryan Gustin on the all-time USMTS wins list. "We've had a good car, had some good luck on draws and everything too. We're just trying to be there at the end." For Phillips, who struggled to a 19th-place finish one night earlier, his 31st career USMTS victory will have to wait for another day. "We changed a lot of stuff and got better, but I just got snookered there," Phillips admitted. "sometimes when you're leading you don't know where to go. After he passed me, I moved down and it started rubbering up so I'm like 'Well, been here before.'" Phillips followed the defending USMTS national champ to the finish line with O'Neil crossing beneath the checkered flags third while Dereck Ramirez and Zack VanderBeek completed the top five. Sixth through tenth were Shane Sabraski, Jacob Bleess, Cory Crapser, A.J. Diemel and Jason Hughes.

Henry perfect in traffic to score Attica 410 win; Markham gets last lap pass for late model victory; Miller gets redemption in 305 sprints
Henry perfect in traffic to score Attica 410 win; Markham gets last lap pass for late model victory; Miller gets redemption in 305 sprints dirt track racing news
ATTICA, Ohio - Cap Henry survived a tangle battling for the lead early and drove through lapped traffic in perfect fashion to earn his sixth 410 sprint win at Attica Raceway Park Friday, June 12 on Construction Equipment & Supply/Venture Visionary Partners/Advanced Drainage Systems Night. Ryan Markham benefited from a late race caution and drove into the lead coming to the checkers to win the late model feature while a caution flag also benefited Jamie Miller who held off Paul Weaver for the 305 sprint feature win. Henry, from Republic, Ohio, took the lead from pole-sitter Zane DeVault on lap two of the 30 lap Callie's Performance Products 410 Sprint feature but the two made contact with DeVault spinning. Henry withstood early pressure from eight time track champion Byron Reed and then picked his way through traffic to score his sixth career Attica win. "Zack, Mike and all the guys give me a really great race car. Man I got really nervous seeing Byron right there when I came by the scoreboard. We kind of ran out of patience there on the first lap with Zane and I feel bad about that deal," said Henry beside his Lane Racing, Dragon's Milk White, New Holland Spirits, Beer Barrel Bourbon, FK Rod Ends, Wings Unlimited, Kistler Engines, J&J Auto Racing, Linder's Speed Equipment, Lead Head Water Fowl, Ballistic Designs, Geck Electric, Nemesis Designs backed machine. With three laps to go in the Propane.com/Dirt Nerds Podcast Late Model feature Ryan Markham was nearly a straight away behind the the two leaders. Then a caution came out and the Ashland, Ohio driver sat up in the seat and passed Devin Shiels coming to the checkers for his 16th career Attica win placing him third on the all-time victory list. "My crew chief got me too tight up on the cushion and I was running them guys down early then I jumped the cushion a couple of times and overheated the tires. I needed that caution just to settle things back down. After that it was just get up on the wheel and see what happens. It was treacherous up there...we had to let her hang out but hey, we're up here," said Markham beside his Hickory Hollow Concrete, Terry's Towing, The Beer Barrel, Accu-Force, Clear Detail, Matco Tools by Jimmy, Innovative Graphics, Mars Trucking backed #5M. Last week Jamie Miller, the defending Fremont Fence 305 Sprints Attica champion, crashed. Miller made up for it Friday. Miller also benefited from a caution, the yellow waiving with 10 laps to go just as Paul Weaver had passed him for the lead. Miller took advantage of the second chance and held Weaver off for his 25th career 305 sprint feature win, tying him with Mike Linder for second on the track's all-time win list. "I liked to see everyone of those yellows. Every time Paul would get by me I would just try to stick that top and he would sneak by me and that caution would come out and save me. After that last time I figured there's got to be something down there...I've got to try it. I'm going to try to keep racing longer than Paul and cut into that 49 wins he's got," remarked Miller beside his Reedtown Tavern, Fostoria Mod Shop, Sloopy's Pizza, Phil Ritser Racing, Smitty's Pizza, York Carpet, Crown Battery, Schriner Farms backed #26. DeVault and Reed brought the field to green for the 30 lap 410 sprint feature with DeVault gaining the advantage over Henry, Reed, Chad Kemenah and Tim Shaffer. While battling for the lead on the second circuit, DeVault spun and on the ensuing restart Brian Lay and Caleb Griffith tangled with Lay taking a nasty flip on the front stretch; he was uninjured. On the restart Henry pulled away slightly as Reed and Kemenah battled for second. Henry maintained about a five car length advantage over Reed while Kemenah ran comfortably in third with Shaffer battling with last week's winner Stuart Brubaker for fourth. The leaders raced into heavy lapped traffic by the 13th circuit but Henry had little problems navigating through while Reed and Kemenah gave chase. At the halfway point the top three remained unchanged but the race for fourth was heating up between Brubaker, Travis Philo and Shaffer. As the laps ticked off - after the lap two caution and red the race went caution free the rest of the way - Henry seemed to have things well in hand. But, with seven laps to go a pair of lapped cars were racing side by side in front of Henry and Reed and Kemenah closed. Once he was able to work past the lappers, Henry had a clear track the final three circuits to score the win over Reed, Kemenah, Brubaker and Shaffer. Matt Irey and Tim Sabo comprised the front row of the late model 25 lap feature and when the green flew Irey blasted into the lead. But a caution involving three cars after one lap was scored bunched up the field. When the green flew Irey had his hands full with Devin Shiels while Markham sat comfortably in third. Shiels mounted a challenge of the lead on lap nine but Irey maintained his composure to continue to lead. With seven laps to go Shiels was putting tremendous pressure on Irey as they raced into traffic. Irey got into a lapped car which gave Shiels the opportunity to grab the lead on lap 21. Shiels and Irey ran side by side and nose to tail while Markham sat back about a half a straight away from the lead duo. Then a caution flew on lap 22. When the green flew Markham jumped to the cushion while Shiels and Irey stuck to the bottom. Markham took second on lap 23 and was side by side with Shiels as they raced to the white flag. Markham road the cushion to perfection and stole the lead coming to the checkers. Shiels, Irey, Larry Bellman and Sabo rounded out the top five. The start of the 25 lap 305 sprint feature saw pole-sitter Kyle Capodice jump in to the lead over Miller, Brandon Moore, Weaver and Steve Rando. A multi-car incident after a a lap was scored gave Miller the opportunity to jump up to the cushion and grab the lead on the restart. Weaver drove into second on lap five and closed on Miller. A caution on lap nine just as Miller and Weaver were driving into heavy lapped traffic gave them a clear track. Miller again drove away on the restart with Weaver, Steve Rando, Capodice and Brandon Moore in pursuit. Just as Weaver executed a slider to take the lead on lap 16, a caution would hand the top spot back to Miller. Miller didn't waste the second chance and held off Weaver for the win with Rando, Capodice and Luke Griffith rounding out the top five. Attica Raceway Park plans to be back in action Friday, June 19.

Bailes Wins Cherokee Lucas Oil Race on Final Lap
Bailes Wins Cherokee Lucas Oil Race on Final Lap dirt track racing news
GAFFNEY, SC (June 12, 2020) - Ross Bailes wins the 22nd Annual Grassy Smith Memorial at Cherokee Speedway on Friday night. After battling with Brandon Overton throughout the event, he took the lead on the final lap when Brandon Overton suffered a flat tire heading down the back stretch. Bailes seized control of the lead and flashed across the finish line to pick up his second career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory. A very competitive 50 lap main event saw Bailes become the 10th different winner in 14 Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series races this season. The event was the first since February with fans in the grandstands. The packed house saw a great race for the lead between Bailes and Overton, who entered the event on a 2-race Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win streak. Overton's misfortune on the final lap dropped him to fourth at the finish. Brandon Sheppard and Jimmy Owens dueled back-and-forth during the last half of the race to come home second and third. Chris Ferguson rounded out the top five. Bailes grabbed the lead on the opening lap with Overton and Owens trailing. Bailes received heavy pressure from Overton as the two encountered heavy traffic. Overton made his first pass for the lead on lap 23, but Bailes came back on lap 28 to regain the top spot. Overton returned the favor, repassing Bailes on lap 46. However, a caution with 48 laps complete set up a dash to the finish. On the restart Overton was leading Bailes, Sheppard, and Owens. Overton had control of the race until his car suddenly slowed coming off of turn two on the last lap. Bailes, Sheppard and Owens all went by Overton. In Lucas Oil Victory Lane Bailes was breathless as he talked to the packed grandstand of onlookers. "Man, this is unbelievable. We have been through a lot this year. I am so excited to win this in front of my home crowd. I mean it can't get any better than that," said the 30-year-old racer. "The car was better than the driver. I just didn't know what to do in lapped traffic and he [Overton] had the advantage of being behind me and seeing where he needed to go. Overton had a good car too, he probably has the best car in the country right now and we were right there with him. I hate what happened to Brandon, but luckily I was on the good end of that one at the finish. This is the first Lucas Oil win for Auggie (Burttram), and I wanted to get in his car and prove we could do it. He has as good of equipment as you can get. This is the first night out on a new car and we had a rebuilt Clements engine." Sheppard came home in second in the Mark Richards Racing Rocket 1 House Car. "The race was pretty crazy out there tonight. We had a pretty good car. I think I ran the top a little bit too early the first few laps. I think I burned my tires up. All-in-all another second-place finish here at Gaffney in front of a packed crowd is pretty good. It's really nice to see all these fans out here. We have really missed them being at the track." Owens rounded out the podium speeches for the night. "We aren't worried about the points right now. They will take care of themselves. We are out here trying to win as many races as we can. I hope the fans enjoyed it. We were having a ball out there. I jumped to the outside and I was probably harder on tires than anyone else. I was trying to put on a show, and it didn't work out like I wanted to. Hats off to Ross Bailes, I was glad to see him win." The winner's Augie Burttram/Big Frog Motorsports owned Rocket Chassis is powered by a Clements Racing Engine and sponsored by M&W Transport, Dave's Towing, Collins Signs, Integra Racing Shocks, and Sunoco Race Fuels.

TERRE HAUTE & PUTNAMVILLE ADDED TO INDEPENDENCE WEEK USAC AMSOIL NATIONAL SPRINT SCHEDULE
TERRE HAUTE & PUTNAMVILLE ADDED TO INDEPENDENCE WEEK USAC AMSOIL NATIONAL SPRINT SCHEDULE dirt track racing news
Speedway, Indiana (June 12, 2020).........Bonus nights of USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car racing have been added to the 2020 schedule to make for a can't miss Independence Day week to kick off the month of July. On Wednesday, July 1, the 50th annual Tony Hulman Classic comes to the Terre Haute (Ind.) Action Track, continuing a tradition that began in 1971 on the famed half-mile dirt oval at the Wabash Valley Fairgrounds. Furthermore, a date for the series has been added to the Bill Gardner Sprintacular to make for back-to-back nights of full racing programs for the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Cars co-sanctioned by the Midwest Sprint Car Series at the 5/16-mile Lincoln Park Speedway dirt oval in Putnamville, Ind. on Friday, July 3 and Saturday, July 4. The Friday, July 3 event will be a full-points event for MSCS and will award 50 appearance points to all competing licensed USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car drivers and teams toward the series championship standings. The MSCS format will be utilized with group qualifying and a drawing to be held after the heats to determine the exact number of cars to be inverted at the front of the feature event. The Saturday, July 4 event at Lincoln Park will be a full-points race for both the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Cars and the MSCS Sprints. USAC's format of single car qualifying, with the top-four transferring from each heat race and top-six from the semi-feature to seed the feature starting lineup, will be used. Meanwhile, the series has announced the postponement of a pair of USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car events, the June 27 race at I-96 Speedway in Lake Odessa, Mich. as well as the July 9 event at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Nebraska.

PACE PERFORMANCE RUSH SERIES SLOWLY RETURNING TO RACING WITH BIGGEST WEEKEND TO DATE ON TAP
PACE PERFORMANCE RUSH SERIES SLOWLY RETURNING TO RACING WITH BIGGEST WEEKEND TO DATE ON TAP dirt track racing news
(Pulaski, PA)...After more than two and a half months downtime due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the sights and sound of auto racing is slowly returning to the Pace Performance RUSH Racing Series together with Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC tracks. In fact, the biggest weekend to date is planned with RUSH-sanctioned racing taking place in Delaware, Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. Prior to this weekend, only four RUSH-sanctioned events have been completed with only three since the COVID-19 pandemic. In the Late Models, Matt Hill was victorious back at Georgetown Speedway on March 15 and has since recorded a runner-up at Potomac Speedway's opener on May 30 and captured his season's second win during the opener at his home track Delaware International Speedway on June 6 to take the early lead in the National Weekly Series Championship standings. Other winners have included Dale Hollidge at Potomac and J.J. Mazur at the Bradford Speedway opener on June 7. Mazur's win came over an all-time Bradford record high 21-car field in the first race under new promoter Dennis Cummings! So far the only other RUSH division on dirt to get a race in thus far this season was the Pro Mods at Bradford with Greg Johnson taking his first win at the track. The RUSH Asphalt Series got underway on June 6 at Jennerstown Speedway with a record car count on hand for the current management. It was great to see 16 Late Models that utilize the RUSH sealing program take part in opening night! In addition to all of the above tracks in action, Genesee Speedway swung its gates open on Thursday night with the first program in the state of New York albeit without fans but the nonetheless Jimmy Johnson topped a 22-car field. New owners Terry and Nikki Brewer will begin their journey of race track ownership on Saturday night at New York's Woodhull Raceway that will also include a "King of the Ring" knockout style match race. Like Genesee, no fans are permitted. Winchester Speedway will open the Virginia racing season on Saturday, but also without fans. Dave Alexander's second year of ownership at Eriez Speedway will get underway on Sunday evening. Lernerville Speedway, Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway, and Raceway 7 are all one step closer to racing action as all three tracks have an open practice on tap this weekend. Hopefully the first events for the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Sportsman Modified Weekly Series and the Equipment Rental Options RUSH Sprint Cars Weekly Series will get underway very soon. Also, the new RUSH Karting Series is very close to debuting as its sanctioned tracks. "I'm so happy for our racetracks that have been given the green light to start racing," expressed RUSH Director Vicki Emig. "We're also very hopeful that we will begin to see the same positive result for all of the others in the very near future. Everyone has been working so hard to be able to swing their doors open and get us back to racing. It's certainly a challenging situation and not as easy as some may think to be able to return to racing. I'm confident that RUSH racers and fans will turn out in great numbers to support their efforts once everyone does get up and running." RUSH reminds racers that have yet to send in their memberships to do so as soon as possible. Memberships are available on each division's respective website.
