ACCORD SPEEDWAY NEWS

Accord, NY - Accord Speedway Falls Victim To the Weather
By: Steve Pados, Accord Speedway Media

The poor weather forecast predicted for Wednesday evening has caused Accord Speedway promoters Gary and Donna Palmer to throw in the sponge and cancel the scheduled Midweek Madness program of events slated for this evening at the speedway. The rain has been on and off again all day long and rather than bring the race fans and race teams out to the speedway, the Palmer Family has decided to cancel the show and allow everyone to make alternative plans to spend the rest of their evening.

The Accord Speedway will swing back into action this coming Friday evening on June 24th with the regularly scheduled program on KB'S Racing Photos evening at the speedway. KB's has reached out to the local racing community for support for this evening as many of the driversand teams in the Northeast have donated race car body parts and memorabilia the fans can purchase throughout the course of the evening with all proceeds being donated to the American Cancer Society.

Midweek Madness will continue from June 29th until August 31st every Wednesday evening. Gates open at the speedway at 5 PM with Hot Laps scheduled for 6:45. Racing is to start at 7:15 PM. Admission for the Wednesday shows is just $5.00 and the great concession stand is open throughout the racing card.

Friday night racing at Accord runs from April through September with six great divisions going to war on the Accord high banks. This week KB'S Racing Photos will serve as the headline sponsor for the evening's event and will feature the five regular divisions at the speedway plus the return of the Legneds division and a qualifying event for the Five Mile Point Southern Tier 100 event to be held later in the season. Admission for the great racing action remains the same from a season ago as Adults (12+) will be $12.00; Children (11 and under) will be $3.00. The Family Value Pack that was met with much success last season is once again offered and is: 2 Adults, 2 Children, and $20.00 in food vouchers for $40.00, a savings of $10.00 to the consumer. Pit Gates open at the speedway at 4:30 and Spectator Gates open at 5. Hot laps kick off at 6:30 and the racing is slated to start at 7 PM.

Big offerings are in store for the racing fans in the upcoming weeks at the speedway. July 1st will find the fireworks expert "Wild Bill" back in the house to unleash his special brand of magic to the skies over the Accord facility with his one of a kind light show and fireworks extravaganza. The event will mark the eleventh time that Wild Bill will be making his dynamite appearance at the speedway. The now famous Chicken BBQ will compliment the speedway's salute to Independence Day. Come early and enjoy the always spectacular racing and the great food the speedway is noted for.

Rome Provides Second Straight Win for Tony Knowles



Tyrone, Georgia (06/21/11) – Just a week after claiming his first win of the year Tony Knowles won his second straight event to the tune of $2,000 as he powered his #26 RSD Enterprises/SAE Parts/Rocket/Custom Racing Engine Super Late Model to the feature win in the season opener at Rome Speedway.

Tony made the last minute decision to enter the $2,000 to win, season opener at Rome Speedway (Rome, Georgia), and it would prove to be a great decision as he claimed his second win in as many races, and his second win of the year. With 19 cars entered into the event, Knowles would start on the second row for the feature, as he ran third during the opening circuits to Aaron Ridley and Casey Roberts. However, on a lap 8 restart, Knowles would use the high line to race his way past Ridley and Roberts to take over the top spot. He would never look back as he led the final twenty-two laps to claim the win, which came over Ridley, Ronnie Johnson, Robert Gant, and Frank Ingram. Full results are available at www.DixieSpeedway.com/Rome/ .

After seeing the event nixed last Saturday by rain and rescheduled for this Saturday Tony will be in action with the Southern All Stars Dirt Series this weekend with a $5,000 to win/$300 to start event at Smoky Mountain Speedway (Maryville, Tennessee) on Saturday night, June 25th. Knowles is currently tied for 6th in the latest series' standings, and will be looking to make up ground this Saturday. For more information on the event, please visit www.SouthernAllStarsRacingSeries.com  and www.SmokyMountainSpeedway.com .

Tony Knowles Racing would like to thank all of their sponsors including RSD Enterprises, SAE Parts, Hoosier Race Tires, VP Racing Fuel, Coleman Auto Salvage, All Star Performance, CJ Trucking, Wiles Drive Shafts, Simpson Race Products MSRMafia.com, Rocket Chassis, Hunter Electric, Aquatic Solutions, Ohlins Racing Suspension, and All Star Graphix.

Joe Martin Continues Winning Ways at Tri-City and Dog Hollow

 

Ringgold, PA (June 21, 2011) JM2 Motorsports and third year driver Joe Martin of Ringgold, PA captured his fourth and fifth wins of the 2011 season on Friday, June 10 at Tri-City Speedway in Franklin, PA and on Friday, June 17 at Strongstown, PA's Dog Hollow Speedway.

 

June has been a busy month for Martin as he's competed in three different states and five different tracks while chasing weekly Fastrak points and Fastrak Northeast Touring Series points. Joe currently sits third in Fastrak Northeast points behind Fastrak standouts Max Blair and Mike Pegher Jr. after a seventh place finish at Tyler County Speedway in Middlebourne, WV on Saturday, June 11 and a 15th place finish at McKean County Speedway in Smethport, PA on Saturday, June 18.

 

'It's been a really good season for us so far,' Martin said from his race shop. 'If someone would have told me that we'd have five wins through June, I wouldn't believe them.' 'Business' is about to pick up for the JM2 Motorsports team as the 'Cross the Borders Speedweek' is just around the corner for the Fastrak Northeast Touring Series.

 

'We're looking forward to the Speedweek after we go to Sharon this Saturday (June 25), we've been pretty good at Sharon this year (three wins at Sharon Speedway in 2011) and we feel confident that we can contend for another win there.' Joe continued, 'Then we'll get into the Speedweek and it seems the more we race, the better we get. Hopefully we can come out of that with a few good runs, maybe a win or two, and contend for the Northeast championship. Max (Blair) and Mike (Pegher Jr.) are really good and will be tough to beat, but if we can gain some momentum during the speedweek, we'll have a shot at it.'

 

Up next for Joe and the JM2 Motorsports team is Dog Hollow on Friday, June 24 and the Fastrak Northeast event at Sharon Speedway on Saturday, June 25. After that the team will hit the road for the 'Cross the Borders Speedweek' sanctioned by the Fastrak Northeast Touring Series.

Lincoln Speedway is a very popular and "fan friendly" track in the tri-state area, offering great unobstructed viewing from every seat in the grandstands. The infield is open for watching the races by entering through the fourth turn tunnel. The pits are asphalt, with a slight elevation and great lighting a so fans can watch all the pit action as well. The three-eighth mile Lincoln Speedway offers it all, the high speeds that you would see at the "big tracks" with the flair and excitement of the short track "bull rings". At Lincoln Speedway, you'll have it all.

Back on Outlaws Trail, Tim Fuller Looks Forward to Firecracker Weekend at Lernerville

 

Watertown, NY (June 20, 2011) Tim Fuller and his Tim Fuller Racing Inc., team were back in action with the World of Outlaws Late Model Series this past weekend at Winchester Speedway in Winchester, VA for the $10,000 to-win 'Gunter's Honey Spring 50' before making their way to Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, PA for the much anticipated, 5th Annual 'Firecracker 100' presented by GottaRace.com that will feature two full World of Outlaws Late Model Series events each paying $6,000 to the winner before Saturday's 100-lap, $30,000 mega event.

 

'We got caught up in a mess in our heat at Winchester and that put us towards the back for the feature,' Tim said about his trip to Virginia. 'We had a good car, we were able to hang on to Chub (Frank) for a lot of laps and pass some cars, the longer the race went, the better we got. Maybe if it would have been a 100 lapper, we would have had a better finish.' Fuller finished 13th at Winchester keeping him ninth in World of Outlaws Late Model Series points heading into Firecracker weekend.

 

'I really enjoy going to Lernerville, we've had some success there in the past with the modified and I'm comfortable there in the Late Model but don't really have the finishes there to prove it.' Tim continued, 'It's a fun weekend and a great event that the people at Lernerville put on.'

 

The break in the World of Outlaws Late Model Series schedule has been a blessing for Fuller, who, after teaming up with Chad Sinon and North Wales, PA based BPG Inc., was able to take the time to get his racing operation situated before a hectic July schedule will keep him on the road for pretty much the entire month. 'Now that we were able to take a few weeks and get all of our duck's in a row, I'm looking forward to kicking things off at Lernerville and getting the next few weeks of Outlaws racing underway.'

 

Tim Fuller and Tim Fuller Racing Inc., will be in action this Tuesday, June 21 at Orange County Fair Speedway in Middletown, NY for 'The Big Show III' sanctioned by the Super DIRTcar Series. Then it's off to Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, PA on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, June 23, 24, and 25 for the 5th Annual 'Firecracker 100' presented by GottaRace.com.

Boom Briggs Wins Guaranteed Starting Spot for this Weekend's 'Firecracker 100' at Lernerville

 

Bear Lake, PA (June 20, 2011) Rick 'Boom' Briggs and the Boom Briggs Racing team have captured one of the most coveted prizes in the western Pennsylvania region this past Friday, June 17 after winning the Mid-Season Championship at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, PA which comes with a guaranteed starting spot for the World of Outlaws Late Model Series (WoO) sanctioned, 5th Annual Firecracker 100 presented by GottaRace.com.

 

'Having the guaranteed spot for the Firecracker is a huge relief for us,' Boom said, 'It takes a ton of pressure off during the first two days of the event and lets us go out and race. Last year we ran well during the whole Firecracker weekend and won a heat on the first night, but now, we at least have something to fall back on if something were to happen, it's just a big relief.' Briggs, in his Meridien Hardwoods, Sorbera Family Chiropractic, Horton Equipment, Asel Enterprises, Briggs Transport, Tony Stec Lumber, Chub Frank Racing, CJ's Auto Transport sponsored 99B Rocket Chassis took the lead from Ken Schaltenbrand on a lap nine restart and held off a late charge from former WoO Champion Darrell Lanigan for the win.

 

Boom's season has been hampered by rain but has still been able to compete 19 times throughout the 2011 season while racking up six top five finishes, most recently this past Sunday, June 19 at Eriez Speedway in Hammett, PA where he finished 5th, and seven total top ten finishes. 'It doesn't seem like we've raced as much as we have with all the rain that we've had this year,' Briggs mentioned, 'and the plan is to race as much as we can, we just need the weather and work to cooperate. We're extremely excited about the Firecracker, we've been getting better and better at Lernerville this season and I feel we have a shot to have a strong run. It's always tough to race against the guys that come in for the Firecracker but we've run up front with them before and I'm more than confident that we can do run with them this weekend.'

 

Briggs and the BBR team would also like to announce that their new 2011 Tee Shirts will be available this weekend at Lernerville for $20.00. Fans can purchase 2011 Boom Briggs apparel at Boom's hauler starting this weekend and at other vendor's in vendor's row at 'The Action Track'.

 

Boom Briggs and the Boom Briggs Racing Team will be in action at this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday June 23, 24, and 25 for the 5th Annual 'Firecracker 100 presented by GottaRace.com at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, PA. The three day extravaganza features two full World of Outlaws Late Model Series events on Thursday and Friday, each paying $6,000 to the winner and a huge $30,000 to-win, 100 lap main event on Saturday. Another busy weekend will be in store as next Thursday, June 30 Briggs will be at McKean County Speedway in Smethport, PA for the ULMS sanctioned 'Ned Gleason Memorial'. On Friday, July 1 Boom will return to Lernerville Speedway for a regular show and then head to Little Valley Speedway in Little Valley, NY on Saturday, July 2 for a $4,000 to win ULMS sanctioned event before visiting Hesston Speedway on Sunday, July 3 for the $4,000 to win UFo/Three State Flyers co-sanctioned event.

3rd Annual Greg Schilling Memorial/I-77 Road Warrior Weekend Big Bucks for the AMRA Modifieds

MT. ALTO, WV-The sign above the AMRA Schilling/I-77 Enterprises door reads, "Invaders Welcome-Enter at Your Own Risk." In theory yes, but in reality neither the office, nor the sign exist. What is coming on the horizon, however, is one of the biggest dirt, open wheel weekends of the year. The American Motor Racing Association will host the 3rd Annual Greg Schilling Memorial, this Friday, June 25 at Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway in Stewart, Ohio; then the AMRA Road Warriors meet up at I-77 Raceway Park in Fairplain, WV for another lucrative pay-off.

With its lavish purse and $1699-to-win price tag, the 3rd annual Greg Schilling Memorial Race asserts the AMRA as America's "number one" sanctioning body of open-wheeled modifieds. Known as America's Most Competitive Open-wheeled Modified Series, the AMRA sanctions weekly racing series in three states; playing host to one of the most prestigious touring series in its "Road Warrior Challenge" tour. The Malta AMRA Series is also known for its healthy point fund and contingencies program.

"Once again we are honored to be hosting this event for the AMRA," said AMRA President Larry Keefer. "Greg Schilling was a great racer. We miss him and his competitive nature and warm personality. He meant a lot to his fans and racing in general."

Greg Schilling was one of the early young-guns in the Ohio Valley area when IMCA E-Mods migrated to the Ohio Valley from the Midwest. Greg was a hard-charger and won many races in the Ohio Valley area. Additionally, he later extended his fine talents to the AMRA circuit. Whenever the #99 was in the line-up, it was one car that fans could count on to be a front-runner. Not only was Greg a great racer, but he was a friend to many on the local racing scene. These friends, racers, and sponsors have all come together in a big way to honor Greg's legacy.

The purse for the event parallels a full-blown late model pay-off, featuring nearly $7500 for the first five positions, The payoff is still the same with 19 cars starting according to one of the organizers: Payoff 1-$1699, 2-$1599, 3-$1499, 4-$1399, 5-$1299, 6-$1199, 7-$1099, 8-$999, 9-$899, 10-$799, 11-$699, 12-$599, 13-$499, 14-$399, 15-$299, 16-$199, 17-$199, 18-$199 & 19-$199. The "99" at the end of each pay-off position is in honor of Schilling's number 99.

The inaugural winner was Chris Stotts, Shade, Ohio and last year's winner was Late Model Hall of Famer, Rick Aukland of Zanesville, Ohio.

The AMRA would like to remind everyone that the M-100 tires are now legal in all AMRA events. Friday's event will not be a Road Warrior race, but will be a gem of an event in the cornerstone of the AMRA. Saturday, I-77 Raceway Park will host the Road Warriors and many outside invaders in town for this huge racing event.
At I-77 Raceway Park, Gates Open - 3 pm; Concessions Open - 3 pm; Drivers Meetings - 5:45 pm; and

Hot Laps Begin at 6:00 pm. For More information please contact Kenney Newhouse - 304-552-8804; Craig Givens - 304-989-3305; or Shon Parsons - 304 531 3718 or visit << www.racei77.com  >> The track entrance is just off the Fairplain, WV exit of I-77. Google maps address is 63 Cedar Lakes Dr., Ripley, WV 25271.

Skyline and I-77 Raceway are just a little over 60 miles apart and approximately an hour and 15 minutes of driving time.

Also on the racing card June 25 at Skyline is a regular show for AMRA Late Models and Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association 410 Sprints, Mod Lites and Mini-Wedges. For further information about Skyline Speedway visit << www.skylinespeedway.net  >> or call 304-539-4410 or the track phone at 740-662-4111.

K-C to Host $10 Car Load Night Saturday, June 25 Pack'em In Night


CHILLICOTHE, OHIO-Jeff and Vicki Schrader's K-C Raceway will be hosting a bargain night, not even the best shopper can pass up. This Saturday, June 25 K-C hosts Carload Night! Saturday, admission is free, but each carload of fans that enters the parking lot will be charged just $10. That's right! Admission is just $10 per carload all night until 7:00 p.m. So come early!

K-C owner Jeff Schrader said, “We can get approximately 2,000 cars in this place and I would love to see it full. You can have one person or 15 in a car; whatever way they can fit for just $10. Admission is FREE from 3 to 7 p.m. but it costs $10 to park. That’s all! It’s that simple!”

Fans will not only get in at a bargain basement price, but will get to see the powerful AMRA Late Models, AMRA Advanced Services Modifieds, and the Dan Reno Hobby Stocks all on the same racing card.

Despite the downturn in the economy, K-C has had consistently good crowds all season long and good fields of cars. "We hope that getting the show started on time and finished on time will make racing more appealing to the fans," said Schrader. "It's tough for families, especially kids if the show drags out. Fans like to be entertained and be on there way. This week will be a great week for everyone to test out the New K-C Raceway."

Added Schrader, "Our drivers are dedicated and loyal; and they have been putting on a great show. They are our best promoters and provide the best way for racing to grow--so that we can increase payoffs. To do that we have to put more people in the stands. I hope everyone invites someone to the races."

Also coming to K-C July 1 in a rare Friday night appearance is the historical "Night the Stars Come Out!" featuring the O'Reilly All-Star Sprint cars and All-Star Late Models, plus Hobby Stocks all on the same racing card. The BOSS non-wing sprints come to town July 9.

For more information, please visit www.kc-raceway.com  or call 740-663-4141. K-C Raceway is located south of Chillicothe on Blain Highway off SR 23 at Alma.

Blaney takes ASCOC Speedweek $$$$
NASCAR Champ Stewart Charges from 24th to 7th
Berwanger and Adams take Support Features
By Brian Liskai/Scott Wolfe

CHILLICOTHE, OHO-Experiencing little mechanical issues over the past few O'Reilly Auto Parts All Star Circuit of Champion events, George Fisher went to work on his Ti22 Performance sprint car. The result? A dominating performance by his driver Dale Blaney on the second night of the 29th Annual Ohio Sprint Speedweek at KC Raceway.

Blaney led all 30 laps Saturday to take his 79th career All Star win as he continues to work toward his fourth All Star championship and a possible fifth Ohio Sprint Speedweek title.

Jeremy Berwanger claimed the AMRA Advanced Services Modified main, while Jamey Adams won the Dan Reno Hobby Stock main. Highlights of the evening were the appearances of NASCAR Sprint Cup stars Kasey Kahne and Tony Stewart, who both raced their way into the A-main event.

"I love this place”, said Blaney. “George likes it...I mean it's kind of his home track. We always run pretty good here. The way the track was tonight you could race all over it," said Blaney. "We've been qualifying really well but we haven't been finishing off things. Tonight the car was really, really good from qualifying on and I tried to limit my mistakes to a few tonight. If we can continue to do that we will be in good shape."

"The traffic went pretty good for us. I tried to be aggressive because that 83 car (Tim Shaffer) is awful, awful fast, especially the last half of the race he gets really fast and you know he'll be there at the end. I was just trying to put as many lapped cars between us and it worked out pretty good," added Blaney.

Shaffer, who opened speedweek with a win on Friday, would race into second on lap nine, but caution flags and lapped cars would prevent him from getting to Blaney.

"It wasn't meant to be tonight. Dale and George and those guys did a great job. We couldn't get the breaks tonight. It's been a tough year already and hopefully during speedweek we can make up some ground," said Shaffer beside his Aaron Call/Janet Holbrook owned machine sponsored by Kistler Engines.

Cole Duncan would take third on the third lap and that's where he would finish, as the cautions prevented him from challenging the top two.

"We had motor trouble yesterday and Charlie Fisher helped us out today and we got that thing running pretty good. We were pretty good on the long runs...we were good early but there were too many lapped cars there at the end," said Duncan beside his Bobby Labonte Racing, Wolfden Carbon Fiber Products, Motorcity Auto Transport backed #22. "We put this car together last week...we crashed here last Saturday so we put a new car together and it seems to be pretty good."

Blaney and Kyle Sauder would lead the field to the green with David Gravel, Shaffer, Duncan and Cap Henry in tow. Duncan would move into third on lap three and immediately challenged Sauder for the runner-up spot as Blaney pulled away. "The Low Rider" would hit lapped traffic by lap 7 as Sauder continued to battle Duncan and now Shaffer. Shaffer would drive by both Duncan and Sauder into second on lap 9. Meanwhile there was a great battle for third between Sauder, Duncan, Henry, Gravel and Randy Hannagan.

The caution would fly on lap 13 for a Sheldon Haudenschild/Rob Chaney tangle on the back stretch. Blaney would have four lapped cars between himself and Shaffer who had a lapped machine separating him and Duncan. With a clear track, Blaney would pull away as Shaffer struggled with the lapped cars. Duncan, Sauder, Hannagan and Henry would continue to wage a tremendous battle for third that would last until lap 28 when Travis Philo flipped hard in turn three with fifth place running Cap Henry spinning to avoid the crash.

With a green-white-checkered to finish the race - coupled with a clear track - Blaney would power away to the win over Shaffer, Duncah, Hannagan and Gravel. While the race for third was a dandy, the fans were also treated to NASCAR star Tony Stewart charging from 24th - last - to a seventh place finish.

In the AMRA Advanced Services modified main, former AMRA national champion Jeremy Berwanger fended off the defending AMRA champ Kenny Johnson. Bob Crace, Jr. gave Berwanger a run early, but as the race progressed Berwanger began to check out.

Crace and Kenny Johnson sparred early, and then continued their attack in reverse order once Johnson edged by following a restart. Father-son team of Jeremy and Tim Rayburn battled Fireball Pinkerton and defending K-C champion Brian Whiteman. Racing was once again close and racy throughout the pack, as the sizzling modifieds set the stage for the ensuing ASCOC Speedweek feature.

After a spin Whiteman went to the rear and started a charge the left a great impression on the open wheel crowd. Whiteman came from 17th to 8th in the run. Only Kevin Delaney was able to close the door on his charge to the front.

As Johnson gave it his all to catch the “Murray City Bandit” Berwanger, Crace, Rayburn, Pinkerton, and another contender Chris Wilson fought for position. Crace slowed momentarily, shuffling the top five, allowing Pinkerton to bag Rayburn for third and fourth. Veteran Crace recovered for a strong fifth.

John Arthurs was the co-hard-charger of the race in a 16th to tenth place run, while newcomer Shawn Donahue had a great run in his first appearance at K-C blasting from the tail to 11th. K-C racing Icon Bud Frazier blitzed from 14th to 9th.

Defending Road Warrior champion Matt Holcomb suffered mechanical woes as did Late Model transplant Greggie Oliver.

Rounding out the top ten were Berwanger, Johnson, Pinkerton, J. Rayburn, Crace, Jr., Wilson, Delaney, Whiteman, Frazier, and Arthurs.

Who says ‘nice guys finish last’? No matter where he starts, he puts on a show, and he wins against a whole group of talented, hard-charging Saturday night warriors. Yes, Jamey Adams did it again.

In the night’s finale--Dan Reno Hobby Stocks-- Brandon Mather grabbed the early lead and led 13 laps, despite climbing the front stretch wall on the second lap, then powering back down into turn one in resuming his charge. Mather at one point built up a ten-car length lead, but his tires appeared to fade as the race wore on.

Mather survived several cautions that eliminated several contenders including Roger Mossbarger, Tim Cutler, Keith Dubois, Mike Brust, Jack Martin and Gary Park. On each restart former champion Tommy Mossbarger and Richard Trego challenged for second as another former Champ Bruce Gray, Jr. and Jamey Adams battled for the next position.

As Trego’s mount lost traction, Gray leap-frogged into a fight for second with Mossbarger. Adams, Trego, Jim Hildebrand and Brandon Thompson dove into the fray, as cars scrambled two, sometimes three-wide for position. Great racing back in the pack pleased the remaining throng of spectators who stayed to watch the talented K-C Hobby Stockers.

Defending multi-time champion Jamey Adams started picking them off one at a time as everyone else dueled for position. When all was said and done, it was Adams, Mather, Gray, Jr., Mossbarger, Hildebrand, Trego, Thompson, Butch Eblin, Tracey Ross, and Roger Mossbarger. Butch Eblin was hard charger of the race in a 13th to eighth run.

“Again I’d like to thank everyone who helps me—sponsors, family, and friends. Without them it wouldn’t be possible and to win in front of the speedweek crowd is nice.”

K-C Hosts Carload Night Saturday, June 25 when admission is free, but each carload of fans enters the parking lot for just $10. That's right! Just $10 per carload all night long. On the agenda are AMRA Super Late Models, Advanced Services Modifieds, and Dan Reno Hobby Stocks.

Also coming to K-C July 1 in a rare Friday night appearance is the historical "Night the Stars Come Out!" featuring the O'Reilly All-Star Sprint cars and All-Star Late Models, plus Hobby Stocks all on the same racing card.

HAMLIN SPEEDWAY NEWS

Hamlin, PA - Nine Feature Events With Charlie Shaver Winning Two Highlight Successful Evening At Hamlin Speedway
by: Steve Pados, GA Motorsports Media

The Pocono Mountains have suffered through a wet summer thus far this season and while Mother Nature has hindered the number of races hosted at the Hamlin Speedway in 2011 it hasn't diminished the ultimate need for speed for the 120 talented racers that converged into the speedway pit area on Saturday evening as the heavy rain from Thursday and Friday gave way to a perfect Saturday. After a week off due to inclement weather, the Smith Family was able to get back on track and present another banner night of racing activity for the packed house of eager racing fans who came out to enjoy their racing heroes performing on the well groomed 1/5 mile speedway. Playing catch-up with two postponed races from way back on May 21st when the racing was halted due to heavy fog, the well-trained speedway staff was able to present the entire hotly contested regular show of seven feature events plus the two make-up events and complete the exciting show by 10:30 PM.

The Super Slingers kicked off the main events and it was Greentown hot shoe Wes Hearn racing to the upper reaches of the speedway from his fourth starting spot to grab the lead coming off of turn two on the opening lap. Hearn threatened to make it a runaway in the early laps but as the racing hit the midway point Charlie Shaver was back to task as he sized up a fast lane to slip by Hearn. The winning moment came on lap fifteen as Shaver used a full head of steam to pull even with Hearn and then knife by with the skill of a surgeon. Once in front it was the Shaver show as he whisked through the remaining laps with 14.5 second clockings per lap to capture the checkered flag and a trip to the Hamlin Speedway Victory Circle. Wes Hearn was in for the runner-up slot in a great run with hard-driving Henry Anderson capturing third place, PJ Dempsey fourth in a uniform finish and Paul Ennes completing the top five.

Tommy Kunsman Jr and Robbie Watson led the winged warriors of the 270 Micros to the line for the start if their makeup feature event and Watson was quick to go topside as the pair of wingers dove into turn one and came out of turn two with the lead with Kunsman in tow. Watson was able to runaway and hide for the first twenty laps of the event but came upon lapped traffic as the five to go sign was displayed. Watson was cautious as he attempted to move by the traffic and possibly two cautious as now second place man Jarid Kunkle was eating up big chunks of the Hamlin clay as he reeled in the leader. As the white flag fell Watson's lead was down to two car lengths and Kunkle was sizing up his options to go for broke. As the leaders hit turn three, a wisp of daylight on the bottom of the speedway allowed Watson to make the run for the flag and capture the win over the too close for comfort Kunkle. It was a great race and "The Aviator" Robbie Watson gained his first win of the season over the smooth running Kunkle. Tommy Kunsman Jr, "The Hurricane" Harlee Schaffer and Trevor Dunn completed the top five.

The seventeen car starting car field for the Junior Slingshots kicked off the regular feature events and the field was bolstered by many of the young racers who have been poundeing the Accord Speedway clay this season. "Scoot" Taylor Eccles seized the lead at the drop of the green flag and Mohnton's Jacob Dunn was quick to try and weasle his way by the Garden State racer. Dunn came close to getting it done on numerous occasions but Eccles held his ground and remained the leader. Coming off of turn two just before the halfway mark of the event, Dunn gave it all he had and lost the handle of the race car and spun to the infield. On the restart, a six-car posse of young hot rodders took up the chase after Eccles and it was "The Midget" Chris Kurtz who found the magic to race from his twelfth starting spot to race into the top five. Kurtz was finding extreme bite off of the bottom of the raceway and soon was the runner-up and chasing Eccles but it was Eccles prevailing with a win and a trip to victory circle in what is believed to be his first ever win at Hamlin. Kurtz was the runner-up with the much improved Thomas Strupp in third, "Thrillin" Dylan Martin in fourth and "The Little Tornado" Zack Weisenfluh recovering from an early spin to race his way back through the field and finish fifth. Kevin Predmore, Tyler Johnston, Allison Kaminski in her first appearance in the recently purchased former Dale Reed racer, Jacob Dunn and "Kid Ice" Cole Hentschel completing the top ten.

"Lightning" Larry Mekic took the lead at the start of the Rookie 600 Wingless Micro event but it was "The Jet" Justin Brewster who was soon challenging for the top spot. Mekic was getting a lot of mileage from his racer as the pair duked it out for the lead and on lap nine it was Brewster driving by to seize the point. "J-Shot" Jacob Hendershot, who came into the event fresh off a Wednesday night win at Accord, took up the chase and was able to execute the pass of Brewster as the pair got into lapped traffic. Hendershot led the remaining laps to claim the win with Brewster continuing his great work to claim the runner-up spot. Stony Point, New York wheelman Steve Reynolds showed a ton of moxie in a great run to third place and Danielle Dickinson performing well with a fourth place finish, Timmy Howell completing the top five and "Rimac" Riley Moczulski enhoying a great run in sixth.

The Rookie 270 Micro feature had Cheyanne Schaffer guiding her race car to the point at the opening bell and dominating the action as she captured the win in a wire to wire triumph at the speedway. Hayden Miller continued his great work with a solid runner-up run and Makenzie Harper was third with Craig Fedoryk in fourth and Scott Avery completing the top five.

Jarid Kunkle took the lead at the start of the 270 Micro feature event and led the first twelve laps while being dogged by "Flyin" Ryan Smith, who began his run for the roses from eighth starting position. Kunkle was quick but fell to a hard charging Smith off of turn two on the thirteenth lap of the 25-lap main event. Once in front, Smith peddled away from the field to record the win over a hard driving Tommy Kunsman Jr with Kunkle in third, Robbie Watson in fourth and Trevor Dunn completing the top five.

"Double J" Jimmy Johnston took advantage of a rare row row starting spot to take the lead at the start of the regularly scheduled Super Slinger feature and had things going his way for the first twelve laps of the event until Charlie Shaver charged through from his fifth starting spot to pull up alongside of Johnson off of turn two to gain the the advantage and never looked back as Shaver gained win number two for the evening's events. Johnston had a great outing in a runner-up role with Aaron Henneforth driving from ninth place to finish third, PJ Dempsey was fourth and Henry Anderson completing the top five.

Brett Michalski took off at the start of the 600 Wingless feature and was able to drive off in his own zone early in the event and ripped off vast hunks of real estate to carve out a big lead. Some cautions slowed the pace a bit and allowed "The Incredible" Jonathan Hull to drive into the runner-up slot with some great driving off of the top of the raceway. The action behind the frontmen was fabulous as multi-grooves and daredevil moves proved to be a big hit with the great crowd on hand. There was no stopping Michalski as he captured the win with Hull close behind. Billy Clark continued his great work at the speedway with a third place finish in his four-coil Hyper and "The Minuteman" Alex Curley enjoyed a great drive with a fourth place finish. Kyle "The Hot" Lick completed the top five in his Terry's Drive Train sponsored racer. "The Bushkill Bullet" Kyle Rohner was sixth in his first ever 600 event in the Ronda and Gary Phillips owned hot rod and the returning to action Joe Kata was seventh in his first event after flipping hard a couple of weeks ago at the speedway. ARDC Midget ace Erik Heydenreich was eighth in his Hamlin debut, "The Rocketman" Ryan Wood was ninth and rounding out the top ten was Tony Iudicello.

Defending track champion Dale Kober took the lead at the start of the Allstar Slingshot headliner. A couple of restarts slowed the pace but Kober was up to the task at hand and held his ground as he fought off the advances of the quick Charlie Shaver who was bound and determined to go for the Hamlin hat trick of claiming three events in one evening. Kober held on lap after lap as Shaver was electric in his attempts to slip by the champ. Kober held on and scored the win with Shaver in the runner-up role, John Pantis silently rolling into thrid place, Billy Clark in fourth and Henry Anderson settling for fifth place. Shannon Smith, Charlie Lawrence, Don Schmidt, Jeff Cosgrove and Mack Brink completed the to ten finishers that saw 22 of the 24 starters complete the event in a closely matched competitive feature run.


POCO-NOTES:

The hotly contested racing began on time and the staff kept moving the program along swiftly with a couple of breaks taken to add mositure to the track surface and keep the race track racy throughout the evening.

Heat race wins were claimed by Taylor Eccles and Caitlin Henneforth in the Juniors. Jacob Hendershot and Justin Brewster prevailed in the 600 Rookie Wingless heat events. The 270 Micros featured two heats with Jarid Kunkle and Trevor Dunn claiming wins. Super Slinger heats went to PJ Dempsey and Charlie Shaver. Joe Kata and Brett Michalski claimed the 600 Wingless Micro heats. The Rookie 270 Micro heat was won by Cheyanne Schaffer. Charlie Shaver, John Pantis and Dale Kober captured the Slingshot heats with Russell Benke capturing the B-Main

New cars continue to arrive at the speedway and one in particular has made the successful transition into the 600 ranks in only his second season of racing. Eddie Strada made his debut in 600 racing on Wednesday night at the Accord Speedway with a sixth place finish and followed on Saturday with his first Hamlin racing in the rookie 600's and scored a ninth place finish in the former Brian Davis owned Micro. Kyle Rohner, who is the defending Spec Sportsman Champion at the Accord Speedway, enjoyed his first outing in the 600's as he was able to race among the leaders throughout in the close-competition event. The Rohner machine was a former Luke Thomas Hyper machine that was purchased by the Phillips Family in the spring. Marc Daniels was able to borrow one of the S&S Speedway cars for Super Slinger action. Duane White was back in action in his 270 Micro. Bill Darcy returned to racing action for the first time in a year and had the misfortune of getting upside down in hte main event and suffred enough damage to sit out the remainder of the event. Ellington, Connecticut's Kendall Segar continues to make sporadic visits to the speedway and improves with each outing. Mike Caropolo took his first laps at Hamlin is some time and it was great to see in action in his Hyper mount. Erik Heydenreich made his Hamlin debut and did well despite having some handling problems with the race car, but Heydenreich is a veteran of ARDC competition and manhandled the racer to a good finish in his first outing. Former Go Kart racer at the speedway Ryan Lacoe had his sharp slinger on hand but didn't make the final transfer into the main event. New drivers in the Junior Slingshot ranks continue to roll into the raceway. Carly Dippel, Leo Fotopolous, Cole Hentschel and Tyler Johnston, all Accord regulars made the Junior event one of the highlights of the evening racing as all of the stars of tomorrow handled themselves well on the race track. Allison Kaminski, who competed once before at Hamlin in Shannon Smith' machine, did well in her first appearance in the former Dale Reed slinger. Reed, who had expressed a desire to step away from racing and did so at the end of May, will be missed by his many fans at the speedway.

Charlie Shaver came within one spot of claiming three wins in one evening at the speedway. Shaver had a fast hot rod all evening long and did some amazing work in what has to be his best performance in his racing career.

The speedway will be dark next week with some time off for vacation and will swing back into action for the July 2nd running of the fourth annual Firecracker 100 at the speedway with a whopping $2,000.00 on the line for the winner should the speedway have 45 entries at race time. Thirty cars will start the main event and the week off from competition will give all of the teams the proper amount of time to spend in getting the equipment up to snuff for the grueling run for the roses at the speedway

Bobby Jones Stellar in Mountain Speedway Modified Performance


By: Gene Ostrowski

June 18, 2011



St. Johns, PA- While behind the wheel of a rocket on Saturday at Mountain Speedway, Bobby Jones of Palmerton, PA took the race lead on lap ten and then held off Rusty Smith to score his second Modified feature event win of the season. Following a crash that took out the leaders with four laps remaining, Dale Santee of Lehighton, PA held off his competition to score his first Street Stock victory at the speedway. Also from Lehighton, PA, Dan Freundt grabbed his first Mountain victory by dominating the FWD feature.

Ken Vogel, Jr. started from the pole position and led the opening circuit of the 40-lap Modified main event over Todd Baer, David Schneider, Allen Creveling and Barry Callavini in the early going.

From the ninth starting spot, Bobby Jones wasted no time and began to advance positions, as he cracked the top five on lap three. Meanwhile, Baer hounded Vogel for the race lead and finally took the top spot on lap four.

Following a quick yellow on lap seven, Jones shot by the drivers in front of him before overtaking the second spot on lap nine.

The caution flag flew on lap 10 when Andy Walko, Vogel and Mike Speeney had tandem spins in turns three and four. That set Jones up for a shot at the lead.

With the green flag back out, Jones overtook Baer for the lead and then began to power away from the field. Schneider held third at that point in time, with Rusty Smith and Callavini in tow.

Schneider grabbed the runner-up spot from Baer on lap 19 and shortly after the caution flew when Baer spun in turn two.

Green flag racing resumed and several positions juggled and Kyle Ebersole joined the top five, along with Walko.

Following a caution with five laps to go, Smith climbed to second but couldn’t beat Jones to the checkered flag. The victory marks the second of the season for Jones, who also sits atop the division’s points standings. Ebersole, Walko and Callavini completed the top five.

Heat race victories went to Ken Vogel, Jr. and David Schneider.

Mitch Hawk led the Street Stock field to the initial green flag in the 25-lap feature and led the first circuit over Dale Santee, Chris Burge, Bernie Uphold and Kyle Curtis.

Following a quick lap two yellow, Chip Wanamaker moved into the fifth position. Steve Shultz followed through for sixth. With Hawk still leading the duo worked through traffic and Wanamaker climbed to third. Shorty after, Shultz overtook Burge for fourth on lap seven.

Wanamaker overtook Santee to move to second on lap nine and Shultz followed to third. It appeared that Hawk was well on his way to his first feature victory at the speedway but that all changed on lap 21 when Pat Mahoney got out of shape in turn four. He attempted to correct the car but with sever impact; it shot head on into the front stretch wall right in front of the leaders. With nowhere to go, Hawk t-boned Mahoney and both Wanamaker and Shultz piled into the mix.

With the red flag out, Mahoney gingerly climbed from his car and did not appear to be severely injured. Wanamaker headed to the pits for repairs and Shultz continued on while Hawk’s great run came to an end. The exchange put Santee back into the lead with Burge, Jeff McGrath, Curtis and Shultz in tow.

Green flag racing resumed and Santee watched the laps wind down. It didn’t take long for Wanamaker to battle back into the second spot, but in the end it was Santee, who visited victory lane for the first time at the speedway. Wanamaker crossed the stripe in second, followed by Burge, McGrath and Sam Grow.

Jeff McGrath and Chip Wanamaker were heat race winners.

Justin Hughes led the FWD drivers to the drop of the green flag in the 20-lap feature. He led the opening circuit over Dan Freundt, Harry O’Neill, Trevor Ahouse and Cody Roth.

The leader pushed up the track in turn four and Freundt took the inside lane to moved into the lead on lap two. He then began to put some distance on his competition before the caution flag waved when O’Neill and Hughes got tangled up on the backstretch when the battled for the second spot.

Eric Banashefski climbed to second, followed by Ahouse, Roth and John Smith.

With the green back out and Freundt still in command over Banashefski, Dylan Hoffman overtook fifth from Smith with seven laps remaining.

Untouchable over the final circuits, Freundt went on to take the checkered for his first win at the speedway. Ironically, it was only his second start of the season following a near four-year absence from driving. A solid second place effort will keep Banashefski atop the points standings and Ahouse scored a career-best third place finish. Roth and Hoffman completed the top five.

Heat race wins went to Trevor Ahouse and Cody Roth.

A handful of drivers from the Garden State Vintage Stock Car Club were on hand to run an exhibition event for the race fans during intermission.

Christine Jr. Visits Late Model Victory Lane at SSP on Saturday Night

 

Newberrytown, PA (May 28, 2011) – On Saturday night, May 28, Manchester’s Randy Christine Jr. held off a hard-charging Carl Billet near the end to win the 25-lap Late Model feature at the Susquehanna Speedway Park. Randy Zechman of Hanover claimed his first Street Stock feature event of the season. Patrick McClane of York scored his first Xtreme Stock Car feature win of the season. Daryl Sipe of York Haven was victorious in the 10-lap Mini Van feature event. Bill Brown Sr. of Woodbridge, Maryland won the Classic Car feature event.

 

When Late Model polesitter Bob Minnich elected to start at the rear of the feature due to mechanical issues, Carl Billet began the race from the pole. Billet quickly took the lead on the start and led the first five circuits. On lap 2, the red flag waved when Chris Knopp spun in turn 4 and flipped his racecar without damaging a body part. The car landed on its wheels and was towed back to the pits for a quick check. Knopp was forced to retire from the race when a broken radius rod was discovered, otherwise he would have rejoined the race. Randy Chrsitine Jr., who started third, took the top spot away from Billet on lap 6. As Christine weaved his way through lapped traffic, Billet methodically pursued. Throughout the final five laps, Billet glued himself to Christine’s bumper, awaiting the opportunity to make the winning pass. The opportunity never came and Billet finished in second, less than a car length behind Christine who took the checkers. Coleby Frye started ninth and finished in the third spot. Larry Baer and Justin Ehrhart completed the top five. Randy Christine Jr., Carl Billet and Larry Baer were heat race victors.

 

The 20-lap Street Stock feature saw four lead changes throughout the race. Polesitter Matt Wampler was the first leader of the race until lap 10 when Doug Benneet grabbed the lead. Contact between Bennett and Wampler resulted in both spinning and going to the rear, giving the lead to Brett Pickel. Pickel held onto the lead for the next two laps until 2010 SSP Street Stock track champion, Randy Zechman moved into the top spot. Zechman never looked back to take his first win of the year. His son, Dan Zechman finished in the runner-up spot with Pickel taking third at the end. Jimmy Slaseman and Scott Thunberg finished fourth and fifth place respectively. Matt Wampler and Dan Zechman were heat race winners.

 

Matt Wampler grabbed the early lead from outside the front row of the 20-lap Xtreme Stock Car feature race. He led laps one and two. Patrick McClane then led laps three and four. Wampler regained the lead on lap five and led until through the ninth lap. McClane once again took the top spot on lap 10 and led until the end of the race to take his first win of the season. Wampler settled for second with Adam Smith, Chad Stine and Tim Hahn rounding out the top five. Wampler and J.R. Rodriguez were the heat race winners earlier in the night.

 

The 10-lap Mini Van feature was won by Daryl Sipe followed by a close battle for second with Donny Groff edging out Davey Groff Jr. John Kitner and Jeremy Haines rounded out the top five.

 

Bill Brown Sr. started on the outside of the front row and wired the field from start to finish to win the 20-lap Classic Car feature event. Matt Wallace was the runner-up with Kurt Welsh, Brandon Little and Charlie Summers rounding out the top five.

 

Racing action returns to the SSP Outback Track on Friday night, June 3 at 7:30 p.m. featuring quarter midgets, karts, Adult Speedcars and lawnmower racing action.

 

Racing action returns to the Big Track at SSP on Saturday night, June 4 with the Late Models, Street Stocks, Xtreme Stock Cars, Road Warriors and Legends Cars. The start time is 7:00 p.m. for racing action.

RAIN INTERRUPTS KODIAK MEMORIAL AT TRI-CITY

Just two laps shy of the halfway mark, a sudden downpour halted the Kodiak Memorial presented by Atkinson Fire Safety Equipment. The event will be completed when the BRP/Hoosier Tire Modified Tour returns to Tri-City Speedway on Sunday, July 3.

The evening's action kicked off with one-lap time trials for the 23 car field. Brian Swatrzlander, a three-time Modified Tour champion, circled the track faster than the rest, earning $250. His time of 18.906 was only .008 better than that of Dave Murdick, another former champion. Also advancing to the fast car heat were Kevin Bolland, Rex King, Sr., Jeremiah Shingledecker and Mark Flick. These drivers were locked into the top six positions for the 35 lap feature, but their heat race finish would set the starting line-up for the feature..

The remainder of the cars made up a pair of heat races that would set the rest of the starting line-up. Taking home those wins were Kevin Hoffman and New Yorker Shannon Whaley.

The fast car heat was captured by Rex King, Sr. He received $200 for that accomplishment.

King Sr. and Bolland were on the front row for the start of the feature. King fired first and led his arch rival into the first turn. Bolland challenged, but King opened up a slight advantage as they completed the first lap. With King riding the cushion, Bolland used the low line to close in again. Bolland pulled alongside the four-time champion as the duo raced through turns three amd four on lap three, but he could not make the pass. Realizing that Bolland was quicker on the bottom of the big half-mile, King switched lanes on the next circuit and thwarted the challenge. King pulled out to a lead of 3.319 seconds before the rains came.

Tri-City and Modified Tour officials debated their options while the rains fell. Eventually, the decision was reached to suspend the race and to complet it on July 3.

The line-up for July 3 will be as follows: 1. Rex King, Sr.; 2. Kevin Bolland; 3. Jermiah Shingledecker; 4. Dave Murdick; 5. Brian Swartzlander; 6. Kevin Hoffman; 7. Shannon Whaley; 8. Eric Gabany; 9. Mark Flick; 10. Jeff Schaffer; 11. Chris Haines; 12. Mike Turner; 13. Rex King, Jr.; 14. Mark Frankhouser; 15. Brian Weaver; 16. Steve Feder; 17. Carl Murdick (-1 lap); 18. Randly Chronister (-1 lap); 19. Shawn Fleeger (-1 lap); 20. Billy Myers (-1 lap); 21. Don Brown (-2 laps); 22. Tommy Mattocks (-16 laps).

Chad Homan blew his engine during time trials and was scratched for the night.

The next scheduled race for the BRP/Hoosier Tire Modified Tour will be Saturday, June 25, at Mercer Raceway Park.

Zane Zeiner Cleans House at Mountain Speedway
Dave Brigati Wins Sport Modified Make Up


By: Gene Ostrowski

May 29, 2011



St. Johns, PA- He’ll admit that it wasn’t easy and has definitely proved that it could be done. Zane Zeiner of Bath, PA not only drove to the regular Sport Modified feature win, but also to the Late Model victory Sunday at Mountain Speedway. Dave Brigati of Long Island notched his first win at the speedway in the make-up Sport Modified feature from two weeks ago and Joey Helburg took his first Factory Stock win at the track. Following post race tech inspection, Chris Young backed into the INEX Legends victory.

Rain came following a crash involving race leaders Todd Baer and Dean Ficarro two weeks ago in the 40-lap Sport Modified feature. The race, which was six laps old, was first on the grid for the Sunday afternoon show. Barry Callavini restarted with the race lead and led over Nick Pecko, Chip Wanamaker, Mike Skarbowski and Dave Brigati.

Wanamaker overtook Peck for second on lap 15 and then set his sights on the race leader. Another driver on a mission was Brigati, who overtook Pecko for third on lap 16.

With Callavini still in command, Wanamaker attempted to take the lead. Callavini slammed the door on several occasions until Wanamaker took the top spot on lap 18. His lead however was short-lived, as Callavini retook command a lap later.

The two battled fiercely and Wanamaker made contact with the leader on lap 24. Both drivers were forced to restart from the tail of the field and Brigati inherited the lead.

Green flag racing resumed and Brigati held on to the top spot to notch his first Sport Modified victory at the speedway. With a strong showing, Skarbowski finished second. Will Schneider finished a career-best third, followed by Baer and Pecko.

The heat race wins two weeks earlier went to Chip Wanamaker and Zane Zeiner.

Dean Ficarro Started from the pole and then lost the lead to Will Schneider before a lap was scored in the regular 40-lap Sport Modified feature. Ficarro held second in the early going, followed by Barry Callavini, Zane Zeiner and Chip Wanamaker.

It didn’t take long and Zeiner took the third position. He then overtook Callavini for the runner-up spot on lap number one before he started to reel in Schneider.

The caution flag waved on lap eight when CJ Lacatvia and Mike Kline tangled on the front stretch. Both drivers climbed from their cars, which were towed back to the pit area.

Green flag racing resumed and Zeiner shot by Schneider and into the lead. Meanwhile, Wanamaker cracked the top five and then took fourth from Pecko on lap 9. Dave Brigati, who started back in tenth followed through to take fifth.

With Schneider, Wanamaker, Brigati and Todd Baer in tow, Zeiner continued to lead past halfway before the yellow flag waved when Callavini turned Dan Kurzejewski. Green flag racing resumed for three laps before another quick yellow flew.

Schneider had problems getting up to speed on the restart and the field got jammed up behind him. Several cars tangled, the worst being Dan Speeney, who retired to the pit area.

Green flag racing resumed and after being flawless on the restart, Zeiner took his first Sport Modified victory of the season over Brigati, Wanamaker, Baer and Mike Skarbowski.

Heat race victories went to Dave Brigati and Zane Zeiner.

Rick Smith led the Late Model field to the drop of the green flag in the 30-lap Late Model feature before second place starter, Mike Sweeney, took the lead. Smith settled into the second spot with Kyle Harvell, Craig Lutz and Austin Kochenash in tow.

Harvell got by Smith and then set said for the leader. Meanwhile, Lutz moved into third and Zane Zeiner got around Kochenash and Smith to take fourth.

A Quick yellow flag flew on lap 10 for Glenn Slocum when his car stopped on the apron of the track. With the green flag back out, Sweeney continued to lead but Zeiner was on a mission. He battled with Lutz for third and eventually climbed to second before the yellow flew for an incident with Smith and Geno Steigerwalt on lap 19.

To no avail, Sweeney tried to hold off Zeiner on the restart. With eight laps remaining, Zeiner distanced himself from the tight pack behind him, which included Sweeney, Lutz, Harvell and Kochenash.

Things got a little hairy from second on back over the closing laps, but the leader didn’t mind. En route to his third straight victory in the division, Zeiner went on to take the checkers over Harvell, Sweeney, Kochenash and Francis Gross III.

Heat race victories went to Kyle Harvell and Mike Sweeney.

Brandon Oltra started on the pole and it didn’t take long for the drivers to go three wide on the start of the 20-lap Factory Stock feature. Chris Parry came out with the top spot and Joe Helburg and Oltra battled before Helburg took command of the event on lap one.

Parry settled into second, followed by Oltra, Matt Schlenker and Paul Morgan, Jr.

With Helburg still out front, Morgan got by Schlenker and then battled with Oltra for third. The duo swapped paint multiple times before Morgan washed up the track in turns one and two and overtook Oltra. Oltra however did not give up, as he ran down Morgan. The first and only yellow flag of the race took place on lap eight when Oltra tangled with Morgan in turn three.

Green flag racing resumed and Helburg led over Parry, Schlenker, Rich Paciotti and Eric Banashefski.

Although he was severely pressured by Parry for the top spot, Helburg went on to take his first win at the speedway over Parry, Schlenker, Oltra and Paciotti.

Heat race victories went to Brandon Oltra and Chris Parry.

Dave Chapman started from the pole position and led his fellow 20 INEX Legends competitors to the drop of the green flag in the 25-lap feature. Scott Hubler pressured the leader for the lead with Raven Schrantz, Steve Hershey and Brandon DeBrakeleer in hot pursuit.

Hubler took the race lead on lap one before the red flag flew on the second circuit when Chapman spun in turn two. More than half of the field did a great job avoiding Chapman’s car until Steve Gual, who had nowhere to go, pounded the side of Chapman’s ride. Luckily, both drivers appear to be uninjured.

Green flag racing resumed and the battles around the track ensued, as some of the field was racing three-wide, including the race for second. When it was all said and done and with eight laps in, Hubler held the top spot over DeBrakeleer, Kevin Nowak, Hershey and Todd McCollum.

Nowak climbed to second behind Hubler by lap 10, and DeBrakeleer held third with Chris Young and Matt Pappa in his mirror.

Pappa worked up to the leader and eventually completed the pass for the lead. However, Young, who crossed the strip in the second position, was awarded the victory after the winner failed post race tech inspection. Nowak finished in the third spot, followed by Van Michael and Andrew Stotler.

Heat race victories went to Kevin Nowak and Chris Young.

K-C May 28 Results/K-C to Host Test and Tune May 31, 2011


By Scott Wolfe


CHILLICOTHE, OHIO-Sunny skies, a large crowd, and 111 of the best cars in the Midwest filed into K-C Raceway Saturday night to help honor those who served in the military as part of the Veteran's Appreciation Night. Sprint car victor Danny Smith, of Chillicothe, said it best in victory lane, "Special thanks to the Veterans who are here tonight. Without them, this (racing) wouldn't be possible." Joining Smith in victory lane was Richmond, Indiana's Duane Chamberlain (Late Models) and local fan favorite Dave "Fireball" Pinkerton. Earning a hard-fought win in the Dan Reno Memorial Hobby Stock feature was defending champion Jamie Adams of Laurelville.

So many cars and fans rushed the K-C parking lot that racing had to be delayed at least 20 minutes to allow entry into the pit area. "That's a good thing," smiled owner Jeff Schrader. "It is one of those problems you like to have. First, I would like to thank all Veterans for coming out tonight, and thank all the many fans and drivers who chose to race at K-C Raceway. I appreciate you all very much."

Two unplanned highlights of the night were having Hall of Famer Charlie Swartz charge from 8th to a 4th place transfer spot in his heat. This was only the second time he has been in a race car in the past ten years; subbing for son Audie who was helping a customer sort out a car in Missouri. The other highlight of the unfortunate nature was a wicked end-for-end hot lap flip by Wes McGlumphy. The driver was ok but his car very badly damaged.

In the Goodyear 410 Sprint Car main, outside pole sitter Todd Kane took the early lead over Danny Smith. Action slowed early when Josh Moffett in the Charlie Brown Special spun in turn two. When lap five rolled around Danny Smith was able to put a slide job on Kane for the lead, but Kane came back at the new leader for a lead swap that didn't stick.

Veteran John Shewbrooks clipped a spinning Moffett on lap six, nearly flipping to bring out the second caution. From that point on the race went green. Smith built up a pad, while Kane and Nier battled hard for second. Kane began a slow fade as the race progressed as Jimmy Stinson passed both Kane and Nier for second. Cole Duncan and Aaron Higgins, two K-C young guns battled nip-and-tuck for 4th as Stinson and Nier closed the gap on Smith, who had to get up on the wheel in heavy lapped traffic.

Josh Davis worked on Kane in an effort to break into a top five after race-long battles with hard chargers Zach Ames, Nathan Skaggs, and hot-footed lady driver Brandy Bower.
Although Stinson, Nier, and Higgins--a trio of Billy Jarrell cars--ate up huge chunks of valuable turf, Smith was able to pull of his second K-C win of the year. Rounding out the top ten were Smith, Stinson, Nier, Higgins, Duncan, Kane, Davis, Ames, Skaggs, and Brandy Bower. Nier was the hard charger of the race in picking four positions.

Said Smith in victory lane, "The car was pretty darn fast. The guys did a good job on the set-up, and the track was once again fast. You could run anywhere on it."

Smith then thanked our veterans and announced, "Shirley Kear has helped me out a bunch. Tonight I am making this Shirley Kear night at K-C Raceway. Also, thanks to everyone who helped get me here and for the fans who come out and support their local track."

Much drama centered around the Dan Reno Memorial Feature, a race run in honor of a great driver and man, Mr. Dan Reno. Brother Darrell Reno paced the field in Dan's #22 as a memoriam to K-C's fallen hero. Ironically, the race paid $1022 to win for driver Jamie Adams and $122 to start. The #22 all the way through the payout was a symbol of Reno's car number.

In the feature event it took three restarts to get the race underway, but when the pack was turned loose Jamie Adams and Bruce Gray, Jr. unleashed a dog-fight. Adams barked the loudest in the early going, but Gray was always within a few car lengths. As the track laid some rubber, the top three moved with feet of each other in a wild fight from number one.
Joining the pack was Kentucky driver Colby Taylor in his first visit to the K-C high-banks. Taylor pressed Gray for second, finally making the pass on lap 11. The trio continued two-wide until Taylor and Adams stretched it out for a fierce five-lap shoot out. Taylor edged by several times and tried Adams, side by side, through three and four coming to the checkered.
Taylor waivered just a little as he spun to the finish line with Gray picking up second. The Dan Reno Memorial Feature top ten: Jamie Adams, Bruce Gray, Jr., Colby Taylor, Brandon Mather, Brandon Thompson, Adam Jordan, Tim Cutler, Phil Rice, Travis Pertuset, and Roger Mossbarger. The Hobby Stock hard charger was Adam Jordan, who came from 15th to 6th.
Adams said in victory lane, "I've never raced against that boy before, but he is a helluva good racer. We raced hard and I don't think either of us have a mark on the car."
"We did a lot of changing on the car tonight, but I think we made the right call. We have a lot of good drivers in this division and they are all getting faster. Once again thanks to everyone who helps me with the car. This win is for you."

Insane Duane Chamberlain had won just about everywhere he has raced. Saturday night, he added historic K-C Raceway to the long list. Soft spoken and polite off the track, Chamberlain is a "terror" on the track. Saturday was no exception.

Hall of Famer Delmas Conley and Racin' Jason Montgomery brought the field to the green flag for the super fast AMRA Late Model A-main. Conley got the jump with Montgomery close in tow. The field got strung out early, but by lap six things started to heat up for the point. Chamberlain moved into second, while Josh McGuire reeled in Montgomery in a fight for third.
Chamberlain pressured Conley low in a side-by-side dual, while McGuire pulled under Montgomery. Exiting turn four of the ninth lap the four cars raced double-file, nose to tail.

 Something had to give as the close-quarters made for some anxious, high-speed moments. McGuire drifted high and the contact cocked his mount side ways as he and Montgomery came to a grinding halt on the front chute wall. This was the second early exit for Montgomery while running either second or third over the past two weeks.

When the race resumed Conley grabbed the lead, but Chamberlain's Patrick Sheltra Racing #23/Rocket Chassis made a Kamakazee dive and made it stick for the lead. Meanwhile, Rod Conley again came on late in the race, picking off several cars for a top three. A lot of impressive work was displayed by the top-ten drivers, who diced two-wide for much of the event. The Late Model hard charger was Billy Gullion who was the most impressive of the group in a 16th to 6th run.

Rounding out the top ten were Duane Chamberlain, Delmas Conley, Rod Conley, Mark Frazier, Nick Bocook, Billy Gullion, Ralph Withem, Jeff Houser, Josh Tidwell, and Dylan Huron.
Said victor Chamberlain, "Finally! I thank you all. This has been a couple years in coming. I love this track, but I've had bad luck and I have finished second too many times. I'm glad to finally get it done here at K-C."

Win or lose, Dave "Fireball" Pinkerton is always exciting. After bad luck last week, Pinkerton turned the tables for a more favorable conclusion.

Pinkerton outran a host of defenders, but had his hands full of Brian Whiteman and Jeremy Berwanger most of the race. About midway, Pinkerton stretched out his lead in his "Powered by HORIZON #8 Dirt Modified", but in the closing laps he was up on the chip as Berwanger and Whiteman closed the gap.

Dave McWilliams, Miles Cook, Jeremy Rayburn, and Shaun Scott all had great runs toward a top five, but it was Cook who had it high against the wall to win the Hard Charger award. Cook advanced from 16th to 5th in a tremendous run after experiencing bad luck in his heat race.

Pinkerton was smooth over the last couple laps to hold off Berwanger, who had jumped ahead of Whiteman. Rounding out the top ten were Pinkerton, Berwanger, Whiteman, McWilliams, Cook, Jeremy Rayburn, Shaun Scott, Kevin Delany, Greg Anderson, and Mark Bailey.

Pinkerton said, "It's been a while. We were out there just having fun. Thanks to all the fans who came out tonight. I hope we put on a great race. Jeremy and Brian ran me clean and hard most of the race. Hats off to them, and thanks to everyone who made this win possible."

K-C will also host a practice session/Test-n-tune Tuesday, May 31 from 6 - 10 p.m. Cost of Admission is free, however, all cars will have a $25 entry fee. Concessions will be available.

ACCORD SPEEDWAY NEWS

Accord, NY- Jeff Heotzler Finds The Magic With Convincing Accord Speedway Triumph
By: Steve Pados, Accord Speedway Media

Accord Speedway Promoters Gary and Donna Palmer rolled the dice and came up big winners on Friday evening as they ushered in Memorial Day weekend at their superb quarter mile speedplant located in the Catskill Mountains. With the weather picture looking bleak, the powers above held off the expected showers as the hard working promotional team had their speedway in tip-top racing form and presented a great holiday show that found "The Jeffer" Jeff Heotzler completely dominate the Modified feature as he took over the lead from "The Legend" Richie Eurich on lap thirteen and drove away from the top field of talent to record his 45th career win at the Ulster County facility. After a slow start early on in the 2011 racing season, Heotzler in his pairing with the Joe Grasso Racing Team, began to put all of the correct pieces to the racing puzzle a couple of weeks ago with a strong fifth place outing and continued that form on Friday evening as he powered away from a stellar field of Modified race cars and drove to a convincing win at the Accord Speedway on headline sponsor Camper's Barn of the Hudson Valley night at Accord. With another large crowd on hand to celebrate the holiday weekend, the event allowed the Palmer Family to hopefully run off another string of consecutive shows as another new winner emerged in the Modified ranks. Greg McCloskey and Kyle Van Duser were first time winners in 2011 while Ray Tarantino, Pat Zimmer and Richie Van Orden continued to add to their laurels with wins in their respective divisions.

"Primetime" Scott Ferrier and "The Accordian" program's feature driver "Little" Richard Smith brought the 22 car field of VP Fuels/Rhinebeck Ford Modified division down for the start of the 30-lap main event. Ferrier was quick to the point and began to open up some distance on the field in the early laps of the event until Michael Storms pulled up lame on lap three. When the racing resumed it was Ferrier leading one more lap until Richie Eurich found the fast seam on top of the raceway to power by and take control of the event. The veteran Eurich showed lots of muscle as he hustled his Country Chevrolet sponsored racer away from the field but Heotzler, after working the bottom of the raceway early in the event, switched to the top-shelf and began to close the distance on Eurich. The thirteenth lap saw the lead change for good as Heotzler powered by Eurich for good and began to open up some room between he and Eurich. Behind the veteran pair of driving greats the competition was hot and heavy as three and four wide racing action kept the fans on the edge of their seats.

"The Statesman" Jerry Higbie came a calling from his twelfth starting position and Andy Bachetti was challenging the confines of the real estate with each passing lap as they fought to gain the edge on each other. "Showtime" Danny Tyler, Danny Creeden, "The Monster" Clinton Mills from 19th starting position and Craig" Hollywood" Mitchell made the racing action interesting and exciting as they diced it out lap after lap on the race to the walls facility. Heotzler was on a breakaway until Higbie slipped by Eurich for second and took off after Heotzler like a runaway freight train as he went topside in his Big Block powered Hutchings Insurance/Shaver Construction/HigFab/Mr K's Carpet Service sponsored hot rod to close the distance on the high flying Heotzler. "The Jeffer" wouldn't be denied on this night as earned some well deserved glory in the Lucas Oil Products Winners Circle with his first win of the season at Accord. Higbie was the runner-up and hard driving "DC" Danny Creeden continued his great work at the speedway with a third place run. Richie Eurich was fourth and Andy Bachetti fifth to complete the top five. The second five in line were Danny Tyler, Clinton Mills, Craig Mitchell, the returning Kevin Duryea and Mike Ricci.

The Camper's Barn Sportsman event was a barnburner from the word go even though "The Kingston Kruiser" Greg McCloskey led from start to finish. McCloskey showed the hot hand early as he grabbed the lead at the start of the event. Darrel Ford kept relentless pressure on McCloskey as he found the bottom of the raceway much to his liking and was able to apply plenty of pressure lap after lap. A disabled Brad Szulewski halted the event on lap- 20 and it set up a five lap shoot-out to glory for McCloskey and Ford. McCloskey was up to the challenge as he raced to his first victory of the 2011 racing season. Darrell Ford captured the runner-up slot with Vinny DeCicco in for third, Kevin Ward in fourth and Jesse Marks rounding out the top five. Mike Barrett, Shane Jablonka, David Coene, Jeff Hulseapple and Joe Giachinta completed the top ten.

"Tommy Gun" Tommy Johnson led the the first seven laps of the Healey Brothers Group Spec Sportsman encounter. A restart caused by the disabled racer of Kyle Rohner saw the handling of the Johnson racer go away as "The Concrete Kid" Kyle Van Duser was quick to take advantage of the Johnson problems to race into the lead off of turn two and lead the final laps to score his first win of the season at Accord. Whitey Slavin raced from twelfth to the runner-up spot in a splendid drive with Matt Hitchcock, John Sundlof, and the tough luck Tommy Johnson completing the top five. Patrick Murphy, Mike DuBois, Lem Atkins, Phil Johnson and Tyler Dippel completed the top ten finishers.

The DC Landscaping Pro Stock event proved once again to be the Pat Zimmer show as the veteran campaigner from Saugerties, New York took over the lead on lap seven from hard driving Jimmy Sykes and drove away from the field to claim his third win of the 2011 racing season at the speedway. Sykes, in a great drive, was the runner-up with Al Christiana, Tom Vasta and John Rood completing the top five finishers.

Veteran campaigner "Smokin" Joe Narok grabbed the lead from Jerry Craig in the third turn of the first lap of the Arkel Motors Pure Stock main event and appeared to be headed to his third victory of the season. As the race developed Narok seemed to encounter some handling issues and withstood the mighty advances of Ray Tarantino until the final two turns of the feature when he slid up the raceway, and Tarantino, who was right behind him, swung his race car to the next racing channel lower and the two competitors made contact but it was Tarantino prevailing for his third win of the season. Jerry Craig was third with Tim Brown in fourth and Ryan Johnson completing the top five.

The Legends main event was captured by Richie Van Orden as the "Flying Dutchman" found the quick line early on and withstood some early pressure from Jimmy Black to drive to a wire to wire triumph as the speedway, his second of the season. Black was the runner-up and the improved Matthew Gaughan was third with newcomer Rich Wheeler finishing up in fourth place.

MUDPLUGS:

The hotly contested racing action was completed before 11 PM. Once again Promoter Gary Palmer had the speedway meticulously groomed to perfection as he continues to put many overtime hours into making his racetrack live up to the reputation of being able to race from wall to wall. The three and four wide racing action in every division is a profound testament to the tremendous amount of work that the Palmer Family puts into their facility. With the speedway beginning two nights of racing starting on June 8th, the ability to keep the racetrack consistent is always a work in progress and Palmer has been up to the task in making it happen which are exemplified by the similar speeds each week the drivers have been turning at the speedway. A few of the combatants for the Mid Week Madness programs were on hand for the evening to gain a sneak peek of what to expect once the Wednesday programs kick off for the season.

The competition remains fierce at the speedway as each heat event resembles a mini feature and getting qualified into the main event becomes an intense battle on the speedway.

Jeff Heotzler was the Accord Speedway champion for four consecutive seasons from 1983 through 1986 with the famed "Hazel" race car and scored 44 wins prior to his win on Friday evening at Accord.

Heat wins went to Scott Ferrier, Anthony Perrego and Richie Eurich in the Modified division while Clinton Mills was victorious in the Consolation event. Heat races for the Sportsman were claimed by Darrell Ford and Greg McCloskey. Spec Sportsman heats were captured by Matt Hitchcock and Tommy Johnson. Pure Stock heats were won by Jerry Craig and Ryan Johnson and the Pro Stock heats went to Tom Vasta and Pat Zimmer. The Legends heat went Richie Van Orden.

New drivers on hand for the evening had the Modified ranks swelling with Craig Mitchell in his Freedom Plains racer, Mike Ruggiero in his beautiful new RW Construction sponsored hot rod, Kevin Duryea in his beautiful K&W Powerwash sponsored racer and Tony Kowalchuk in the TK Motorsports entry. Rich Wheeler was a new entry for the Legends car division. Former Pro Stocker Lenny Helmich was aboard the Don Smith racer for the evening and was scored in 15th in the final feature rundown. Mike Ricci had a brand new body on his racer after the hair raising incident with Danny Johnson from two weeks ago at the speedway. Ricci also stated he was using small block power in the Mastrocola mount for the evening. Brett Hearn, the point leader at the speedway, was an early drop out on Friday night due to rear end problems with the race car. Neil "The Wheel" Harris returned to action only to encounter problems early on and departed from the feature with an 18th place finish. "The Razor" Mike Ruggiero had problems before the start of the Modified main and didn't start the main event. Steve Meilleur encountered some problems and didn't start the Sportsman main.

24-time Grammy winner Polka legend Jimmy Sturr was on hand for the evening's racing and the Florida, New York resident was impressed with the great racing at the speedway. Sturr has been a longtime fixture in the world of entertainment and has performed with such stars at Willie Nelson, Oak Ridge Boys, Mel Tillis, Brenda Lee, Charlie Daniels, Duane Eddy, Bobby Vinton and Delbert McClinton. Sturr interviewed in the tower with track Announcer Steve Pados throughout the racing show and talked of some of the great legends in racing he remembered seeing in competition such as legendary drivers Ray Brown, Bud Marl, Sonny Strupp, Carl Van Horn and Otto Harwi. The award winning Sturr and his band will be performing at the Polish Festival in Syracuse, New York on June 11th before embarking on a Midwest swing that takes them through Wisconsin and Minnesota. Performing at 160 plus events a year the multi-award winning group will be showcasing a cruise from January 28th until February 4th aboard the luxury line MSC Poseia. On board with the Sturr Group will be Philadelphia singing legend Bobby Rydell and country western singer Tommy Cash along with Polka stars Eddie Biegaj and Keith Stras. For more information regarding the Sturr tour dates, one can go to: www.jimmysturr.com Gus Zygmunt, the owner of the famous Crystal Inn in Warwick, New York, accompanied Sturr to Accord as Gus is a tremendous fan of the great racing action at Accord. The Inn is celebrating their 46th year in the restaurant business and is now headed up by Sygmunt's son Ryan. Award winning Top Chef James Haurey has been turning out the Inn's great dishes since 2004 with their field to table food movement that has created a culinary renaissance in the Hudson Valley area. The Crystal Inn is located at 12 Amity Road in Warwick, New York and the dining hours are 5 to 9 from Tuesday through Friday with hours of 5 through 10 on Saturday evening.

Pennsylvania's John Flinner scored the season opener for the All Stars at Lernerville Speedway with "The Salt Rock Express" Eddie Carrier Jr. taking the win in "The Classic" at KC Raceway.

Earl Paules Fends Off Rusty Smith in Modified Thriller at Mountain

By: Gene Ostrowski

May 22, 2011


St. Johns, PA- Even with a quick rain delay during the Modified main event, Earl Paules of Palmerton, PA held off Rusty Smith of Oxford, NY to claim his first win of the season at Mountain Speedway on Sunday. For the second straight time this season, Steve Shultz of Drums, PA went on to claim victory in the Street Stock division and Harry O’Neill of Mountaintop, PA scored his second career FWD victory in only his second start of the season. Kevin Nowak of Long Island, NY drove to a division leading third INEX Legends victory of the year and Bruce Carman of Shaftsbury, VT drove to the Atlantic Coast Old Timers win in his 1948 Midget racecar.

David Schneider started from the pole position and led the opening circuit of the 40-lap Modified feature over Todd Baer, CJ Jones, Allen Creveling and Rusty Smith.

Baer grabbed the race lead on the third lap and CJ Jones moved into the second spot until several yellow flags slowed the even on lap eight. The worst of the lap eight yellows came when Nick Pecko spun in turn three. Several other were involved in the incident, including Kyle Ebersole, Ken Vogel, Jr., John Markovic, Jarrod Nace, Darren Scherer and Barry Callavini. Callavini needed assistance back to the pit area and was unable to continue.

The track was cleaned up but green flag racing was delayed because of rain.

Baer encountered mechanical problems under the rain delay and was not able to rejoin the field for the restart. Green flag racing resumed with CJ Jones in command. Rusty Smith, who had moved into third prior to the restart, held second, followed by Earl Paules and Schneider.

Following a quick lap 15 yellow flag, Paules took the race lead and two circuits later Smith Disposed of CJ Jones for second. Meanwhile, Brian DeFebo and Jimmy Zacharias battled side by side for fourth.

Jones fell from the top five when he was sup on lap 25 and with Paules still in command the yellow waved six laps later with DeFebo encountered mechanical problems and slowed on the backstretch.

With the green back out, Paules held off several charges by Smith and went on to take the victory. Ebersole worked his way back to the front to finish third, followed by Bobby Jones and Zacharias.

Earl Paules and David Schneider were heat race winners.

Jeff McGrath led his fellow Street Stock competitors to the green flag in the 25-lap Street Stock feature. He led the opening lap over Brian Brown, Kyle Curtis, Chris Burge and Dale Santee.

Chip Wanamaker clawed his way into the top five by lap five and Steve Shultz began to climb toward the front as well.

With McGrath still in command in the early going, Wanamaker worked his way to third and Shultz moved into fifth.

Brown, who eventually competed the pass for the lead on lap 10, pressured McGrath for the lead. Wanamaker held third, followed by Curtis and Shultz.

With four laps remaining, McGrath retook the lead when Brown suddenly slowed on the front stretch. However, Shultz and Wanamaker overtook the leader on the following circuit.

Shultz went on to take the checkers for his second straight win of the season over Wanamaker. McGrath finished a career-best third, followed by Steve Clark and Curtis.

Heat race victories went to Jeff McGrath and Chip Wanamaker.

The caution flag flew on the start of the 20-lap FWD feature when Alex Doyle tangled with Dylan Hoffman on the front stretch. In a separate incident, Cody Roth and Pete Verwys got together in turn two.

Green flag racing resumed and Justin Hughes, who had started from the pole, led the opening laps over Harry O’Neill, Jay Skupski, Eric Banashefski and Trevor Ahouse.

O’Neill took the race lead when Hughes drifted up the track on lap three and then Banashefski overtook Skupski for the third spot on the following lap.

Just past halfway O’Neill continued out front, pursued by Banashefski, Hughes, Skupski and Ahouse.

The yellow flag waved on lap 14when Doyle tangled with Ahouse in turn 2. Green flag racing resumed and with a good restart, Banashefski took command. His lead however was short-lived, as O’Neill fought back and retook the top spot.

Despite pressure from Banashefski, O’Neill went on to take the checkers for his second win in as may starts this season over Banashefski. Roth rebounded to finish a career-best third, followed by Jeff Biegley and Hoffman.

Eric Banashefski and Cody Roth were victorious in heat race action.

Carl Jones started from the pole position in the 20-lap INEX Legends feature and was overtaken by Darren Scherer for the lead before a single lap was scored. Kevin Nowak worked to the front and took command on lap two before the caution flew on the third circuit.

Green flag racing resumed and Nowak led over Scherer, Brandon DeBrakeleer, Scott Hubler and Stephen Hershey, but contact with Hubler and Raven Schrantz sent Hubler to the pit area.

Nowak continued to lead at halfway over Scherer, DeBrakeleer, Hershey and Todd McCollum. Shortly after, Brandon Michael cracked the top five.

The final yellow of the event can with one lap remaining when Hubler, who had lost several laps following the lap three yellow, got into Schrantz in turn one.

Despite the late race restart, Nowak held off McCollum to score his third win of the season. Scherer finished in the third spot, followed by Matt Marring and DeBrakeleer.

Heat race victories went to Todd McCollum and Scott Hubler.

The Atlantic Coast Old Timers took to the speedway for a 12-lap exhibition feature. Bruce Carman held off heat race winner, Bill Goodfellow to score the victory.

Conley, Stotts, Adams Grab K-C Raceway wins

Adkins Eclipses Track Record at 13:377



May 21, 2011 K-C Raceway Results



CHILLICOTHE, OHIO-Defending Champions Delmas Conley of Wheelersburg, OH(Late Models) and Jamie Adams of Laurelville, OH(Hobby Stocks) joined Advanced Services AMRA Modified invader Chris Stotts in K-C Raceway’s victory lane during Hall of Fame Night at the historic Ohio oval Saturday night. Great racing and some unfortunate high-speed accidents highlighted the evening.

Prior to the racing festivities K-C Raceway Hall of Fame inductees were honored. The 2011 class includes the versatile Bobby Morgan, sprint ace George Harbour, the multitalented father-son team of Bob Crace, Sr. and Bob Crace, Jr.; Stock Car ace George Branscom, notable car owner Bob Lemaster, and extraordinary photographer Stan Jeffrey. (A script and biography of each inductee follows this release below)

Sometimes you just have to be good or have a little luck. Veteran National LM Hall of Famer Delmas Conley was both Saturday night as he wheeled into victory lane for the 541st time.

"Most of the night I thought I had a third place car then Ben(Adkins) and Jason (Montgomery) dropped out, and there I was in the lead," said Conley. "I might have made a good race out of it anyway, who knows (grinned Conley). The car was pretty darn good." The Dayton Auto Racing Fan Club, DARF, and Hoot Gibson--representing the club--presented a free DARF membership and T-Shirt to all winners.

Cloudy skies and a tacky track made for some fantastic high-speed racing. Just how fast was K-C Raceway Saturday? Fast timer Ben Adkins, West Portsmouth, OH eclipsed Jackie Boggs’ nine-year old track record of 13:614 with a blistering 13:377 run. Adkins was working on a clean sweep after claiming the first heat win over charging Mike Wilson.

Adkins and first heat winner Jason Montgomery began to walk away from the rest of the pack with Audie Swartz a solid third. Adkins and Montgomery then got caught up in a 7-car melee that eliminated four cars including the two top runners.

Swartz inherited the lead, but a lap later Conley leaned on Swartz in turn won to craftily take the lead. Mike Wilson followed in suit to take second. Shannon Roese was well on his way to hard-charger honors when he went pit side with cooling problems. At the same time, racing Chiropractor Brian Eaton tumbled hard into the third turn wall and was out for the night.

As Wilson closed the gap on Conley, Rod Conley, Mark Frazier, Rod Evans, Tony Roush, KY’s Paul Davis and hard charger Randy Wynett (18th to 9th) battled hard for a top five.

When all was said and done, Conley in the Conley Trucking #71 held off Mike Wilson for the win. Rounding out the top ten were Swartz, Conley, Frazier, Evans, Roush, Davis, Wynett, and Russ Frohnapfel.

In the modified main veteran Tim Rayburn and Chris Stotts paced the field to Daryl Owens’ green flag. It took three restarts to get underway, including a violent end-over-end, wall-grinding flip by Eric Arledge. Arledge was shaken, but his car was destroyed in the bone-shaking tumble.

Rayburn led the single-file parade until Stotts dove low for the pass. Rayburn sustained the lead through lap six when an unfortunate spin collected son Jeremy, sending both to the tail. Stotts never looked back despite a late charge by second place Jeremy Berwanger. Much of the race following Rayburn’s demise, Rob Stambaugh and Jeremy Berwanger fought it out with Bob Crace, Jr. and Todd Robinson for position.

Stotts’ Swartz Extreme Chassis/Carthage Auto Parts/Stoneridge Apts. car in its debut run pulled off the popular win ahead of Berwanger, Stambaugh, Robinson, Shawn Holiday, Jeremy Rayburn up from the tail to sixth in a great run, Lonnie Kidd, hard-charger Kevin Delaney (19th to 8th), Tim Rayburn (also up from the tail to a top ten), and T.J. Harper.

Said Stotts, “For the first time out, this car started 'gettin good’. I have to give a big thanks to the crew and Dave Norton for all of their hard work and to Audie (Swartz) for all the extra time he puts in on this car. We hope to just pick and choose our races again this year, but it is good to get the win tonight."

The Dan Reno hobby stock main was a barn-burner between defending champion and master-car builder Jamie Adams and former champion Bruce Gray, Jr. Jim Hildebrand was within striking distance much of the race, lying in wait for a mistake from either Adams or Gray.

With two laps to go, the caution waved and Adams started to get a flat, but the tire held enough to get the job done for the win (as the tire deflated in victory lane).

"Wow, I knew I had the flat with three laps to go, but said, I'm going for it. Bruce showed me his line early and I knew where he was at and where I need to be. He gave me a good run and is a heck of a driver. He will be here in victory lane soon. I'd like to thank all of my sponsors, my family, and friends. They make this all possible."

Hall of Fame Biographies

Following is a brief script of driver biographies:


Bobby Morgan


Bobby Morgan, Chillicothe, Ohio was one of the early pioneers of sprint car racing. Starting his career in 1953, Morgan was a man on a mission. "Schoolin em" on a regular basis is what the veteran racer was noted for, along with his friendly demeanor. Even though some of the early records were destroyed by fire, records show that Bobby won at least 7 features between 1963-1965 and five of those were championship races. Those wins came in addition to many other recorded victories at what was then known as Atomic Speedway.

Morgan, however, was not a one-track racer. He won both on asphalt and dirt at such venues as Columbus, Torch, Skyline, Southern Ohio, Eldora, Lawrenceburg, Huntington WV Speedway, and Heidelberg, Pa. The only race he ran on the high banks of Dayton Motor Speedway he won. Building close alliances with people like Charlie Alfater and The Smith Speed Shop at Eaton, Ohio, Bobby always seemed to be in top notch equipment. Morgan started in a homemade supermodified before being one of the first to have a full blown sprint car built by Alfater.

After an accident broke his leg in six places, the tall in stature Morgan retired in 1971 to spend more time with his daughters Tracy and Lisa. His daughters still share fond racing memories of their father, who in 2003 at the young age of 72 went to Richard Petty's Driving Experience at Indianapolis and the historic brickyard. The trip was compliments of his daughters, who saw a renewed enthusiasm in their father after he turned a lot of heads with his lap times. His times even impressed noted driving instructor Shane Carson.

George Harbour

The Late George Harbour began racing at the Ohio Valley Speedway as a skinny teenager in the sportsman division. Moving up to Supermodifieds, the Apple Grove, West Virginia native quickly became a champion at Ohio Valley and nearby Huntington Speedway. In the late 1960's Harbour began expanding his racing and became a full-time sprint car pilot. Known widely for his victories in the Charlie Brown #99, Harbour was featured in several racing books as one of the original outlaws, claiming wins at Eldora, Wayne County, Millstream, Skyline and Lawrenceburg, IN in addition to over 40 victories at Atomic Speedway.

Harbour, later moving to Huntington, WW, also saw much success in the Ed Reno/Jack Bennington Construction #1, running Opperman-like Heintzelman Chassis’s and then the more sleek versions of the chassis. Harbour was one of a handful of drivers that saw equal success in both winged and non-winged sprint cars, claiming four Atomic Championships along the way. Harbour ran both asphalt and dirt, often venturing to the Anderson Speedway in Indiana.

Proudly, before his passing, he was crew chief on his son Wes' sprint car.

Bob Crace, Sr. and Bob Crace, Jr.

The father-son team of Bob Crace, Sr. and Bob Crace, Jr. shows one of the perfect examples that racing is indeed in the genes. No one looked meaner behind the wheel than Bob Crace, Sr. with his open faced helmet and bandana waving in the wind. Bob, Sr. a veteran of the Supermodifieds was about as versatile as they come. After much success in the open wheelers, Crace, Sr. became one of the first stock car champions at Atomic Speedway. He was the Late Model Champion in 1971 and has driven everything from open wheelers to stock cars to four cylinders, all equally well. Numerous feature wins and many friendships were forged along the way.

His famous #23 is still well known around area racing circles as the family tradition is carried on by son Bob Crace, Jr. Crace, Jr. started in the early 1970's in a Buick semi-late model and saw instant success in all types of full bodied cars. The Open Wheel modifieds came on the scene and Bob, Jr.'s driving style and the sleek open wheelers were a perfect marriage. No one has equaled his success in the Tri-State; if not even nationwide.

Bob, Jr. won the Modified crown the first four years that the class moved to K-C Raceway and he has nine championships at K-C overall. Along the way he also picked up an UMP Nationals Crown in 1991 and won the first Dirt Track World Championship modified race in 1990. He has wins at numerous tracks in Ohio and West Virginia including many wins at Eldora Speedway. He is the all-time modified win leader at K-C Raceway.

One of the family's biggest accomplishments has been the tradition of establishing C&M racing as parts supplier for K-C and other tracks, while still doing work for other drivers as time allows. With son-in-law Jason Cottrill now active in the Modified division, the family tradition should continue for a long time to come.

George Branscom

George Branscom of Chillicothe is one of the first full-fledged stock car pioneers at Atomic Speedway. From a career that started in 1969, George quickly found the fast way around just about every race track he ever visited. Just two years later, he finished third in the first-ever World 100 at Eldora. He had been running in the second spot until lap 98 when NASCAR great Joe Ruttman passed him for second.

While winning at places like Skyline, Zanesville, Southern Ohio and numerous other bullrings, Branscom claimed two consecutive Atomic Speedway Late Model Championships. One of those seasons he won 9 of 13 features at Atomic Speedway. Much of Branscom's success came in Bob Lemaster's 23 Auto Parts car.

Bob Lemaster

Bob Lemaster has been an icon of Atomic Speedway/K-C Raceway for over 40 years. With at least seven Atomic and K-C Championships, using five different drivers, this car owner has seen a lot of changes in stock car racing. From homebuilt "Stock" cars to elaborate racing chassis's known as Late Model Stock Cars, Lemaster has perfected them all. One of his first chamionships came with Super Stock driver Don Stump, then two championships came with George Branscom in what was one of the first tube chassis cars in the area.

As noted earlier, his car finished 3rd at the first World 100. Not only has Lemaster had success with his own cars, but he has also been known to offer advice and lend a hand to competitors. He is recognized as one of the best set-up men in the business. A few tweaks from Lemaster's hand has been found to turn an ill-handling car into a contender. Until health problems recently arose, Lemaster was active in helping area racers find success.

Lemaster also found success himself as a motorcycle racer. This experience helped him push his cars and his drivers to the edge and often on to victory lane. Whether it's at the annual Branscom 'Fish Fry' or at the local track, fans are lucky for the opportunity to hear a great racing story from the veteran racer and wife Norma.

Stan Jeffrey

Some 40-plus years later, Stan Jeffrey photos are considered to be a standard of the industry in capturing auto racing history. Always with a joke and at least one camera around his neck, Stan Jeffrey was always looking for his next shot. With wife Leta selling photos from the table and at least one of his four blonde haired daughters selling Mid-American Auto Racing News and other racing papers of the day, fans knew Stan in the house. His prolific personality and knack for a sale helped make even the poorest racer feel like a star.

Tirelessly traveling from his home in Franklin, Ohio, it was the norm on Friday night to travel to Indiana for a race, and then come straight home to develop his own black and white photos. Then Stan loaded right back up and headed to Atomic Speedway in Alma, Ohio and repeated the process all over again. If there was a Sunday race, he was there ready to go. Always working to get the results and photos in the mail so the tracks had the news before the printing deadline, Stan really supported tracks and racers that he loved so much. Racing lost Stan to a heart attack in the mid 80’s.

Said K-C Announcer Bruce Hines, "One night shortly before Stan's passing, a youngster went sailing over turn three at K-C and came to rest against the parking lot fence. Stan looked at me and said 'he is going to be a good one, if he lives, but he has to live long enough first'." That good one turned into a great one--Four-time NASCAR Winston Cup champion Jeff Gordon.

Baer Finds His Way Back to Late Model Victory Lane at SSP on Saturday Night

 

Newberrytown, PA (May 21, 2011) – On Saturday night, May 21, Dover’s Larry Baer defeated a hard charging Coleby Frye at the end to win the 25-lap Late Model feature at the Susquehanna Speedway Park. Dan Zechman of Hanover claimed his third Street Stock feature event of the season. Dover’s Matt Wampler recorded his second Xtreme Stock Car main event of the season. Aaron Brommer of Auburn won the PENNMAR Vintage Car feature event.

 

In Late Model action, Bob Minnich grabbed the early lead from the pole position for the first three circuits. Larry Baer, the 2010 SSP Late Model Track champion, took the top spot on the fourth lap. Steve billet made his way to the runner-up spot on lap six and set his sights on Baer. Meanwhile a wild race was going on behind the top two spots among seven or eight cars. Towards the waning stages of the race, Coleby Frye, who started 14th, took the runner-up spot on lap 22. For the final three laps, Frye tried everything in the book but was unable to make the winning pass as Baer was first to the checkered at the end. Unfortunately, Baer had to be towed to victory lane with a broken driveshaft in the cool down lap. Fyre finished second, followed by Steve Billet, Justin Ehrhart and Tommy Slanker. Baer, Carl Billet and Charles Potts were heat race victors.

 

The 20-lap Street Stock feature began Jim Palm Jr. leading the first lap and polesitter Matt Wampler taking away the top spot on lap 2. On the eight lap, Wampler spun while leading and retired from the race with mechanical problems. With Palm back in the lead after the restart, Randy Zechman passed him at the midway point of the 2- lap race. Randy’s son Dan,took the runner-up spot from Palm on lap 13. After a late race caution, Dan took the lead from his father and collected his third Street Stock win of the season. Randy Zechman held onto second with Palm, Scott Thunberg and Brett Pickel rounding out the top five. Matt Wampler, Randy Zechman and Dan Zechman were heat race winners.

 

The 20-lap Xtreme Stock Car feature had exciting wheel-to-wheel action from start to finish with Dover’s Matt Wampler taking the victory over Davey Nester. Adma Smith, Johnny Palm and J.R. Rodriguez rounded out the top five. Wampler and Patrick McClane were the heat race winners earlier in the night.

 

The 15-lap Road Warrior feature event finish will be announced in the next two weeks.

 

Auburn’s Aaron Brommer won both his heat and the feature in the PENNMAR Vintage Car class that visits the speedway once a month. Fred Krickbaum was the runner-up with Clark Bartholomew, Larry Felty and Paul Hoffman rounding out the top five.

 

Before the racing action began, former Susquehanna Speedway track champion, Leroy Felty was interviewed as part of the 57th Anniversary festivities at the track which began racing in 1954.

 

Racing action returns to the SSP Outback Track on Friday night, May 27 at 7:30 p.m. featuring quarter midgets, karts, Adult Speedcars and lawnmower racing action.

HAMLIN SPEEDWAY NEWS

Hamlin, PA - Rain Then Fog Halts Hamlin Speedway Racing Action
By: Steve Pados, GA Motorsports Media

The fourth week of the 2011 racing season at the Hamlin Speedway had all of the makings of being another pinnacle event in the Pocono Mountains as a great field of racers and a nice sized crowd filled the facility to witness the top dogs duke it out on the 1/5 mile clay cushioned raceway. Things turned sour quickly as the bright sunshine in the afternoon gave way to dark clouds, followed by a slow moving thunderstorm that resulted in a two hour rain delay. Undaunted, Randy Smith and staff attacked the raceway with the help of the 600 Micros and Slingshot race cars to squeeze the moisture out of the raceway to continue the night's racing program. With a revised racing format in place, the racing action carried on with time trials and exciting competition until a heavy fog cloud rolled into the area and made visibility too difficult for the drivers on the race track to feel comfortable in racing with each other. Promoters Denise and Randy Smith reluctantly threw in the towel in the elements of safety for the drivers and halted the show with six feature events left to complete.

Just as quickly as the racing was halted a new revised schedule for the make-up features was issued. This coming week on May 28th, the All-Star Slingshots, Rookie 270's and Rookie 600's will complete their main events. On Friday, June 3rd the Wingless 600's will complete their feature event in conjunction with the "Spring into Summer V" spectacular at the speedway in which the speedway will have shows on both June 3rd and 4th and the latter date is highlighted by the first appearance of the season of the HTMA 600 Micro Pro Series. The 270 Micros and Super Slingers will make up their feature events on June 18th.

One feature was completed and the lone event was for the "Stars of Tomorrow" of the Junior Slingshot division. The feature run quickly became the Dylan Martin show as the young speedster found the hot line at the top of the raceway and gunned into the lead at the drop of the green flag with Mohnton's Jacob Dunn in pursuit. Dunn challenged Martin early on but lost the handle on the race car on turn four on lap five to bring out a caution. On the restart, the new second place runner Thomas Strupp gave chase to Martin until he slid up the race course two laps later and found Harmony, New Jersey hot-shoe Taylor Eccles ready to attack and Eccles became the the new runner-up. Martin was in the zone as he moved out out to huge advantage lap after lap as he moved through the lapped traffic. "Thrillin" Dylan Martin was the man of the moment as he captured his third Hamlin checkered flag in four weeks of competition and with it laying claim to be the man to beat when the Junior Slingers roll into the Pocono Mountains. Eccles did a superb job to claim the runner-up honors with last week's feature event winner "The Little Tornado" Zack Weisenfluh claiming third place money after an eighth place start. Thomas Strupp, who improves with each race event. was fourth and the hard riding Jacob Dunn recovered from his early spin to race back and weasel his way in for a top five finish. The returning Jenna Schostkewitz, Chris Kurtz, Kyle Gruber, Caitlin Henneforth and "The Flash" Bobby Flood completed the running order.

While the heavy race track slowed the speeds of the drivers, the time trials proved to be exciting. Meriden, Connecticut's CJ Heinig stopped the clocks at 12.434 to claim the fast time for the 270 Micros. Robbie Watson, the returning Jarid Kunkle, Larry Hoagland and Tommy Kunsman Jr completed the top five in time trials.

Cheyanne Schaffer was the fast timer for the rookie 270's with a time of 12.762 seconds. Last week's feature winner for the rookies Makenzie Harper was second quick time with Hayden Miller, Scott Avery and Grady Johnston completing the top five.

Hard riding Robbie Hocker out of Warwick, New York was the quick timer for the thirty Slingshots on hand. Hocker clicked off a time of 15.803 seconds to lead the action with Kyle "Hot Rod" Rode in the runner-up slot. Charlie Shaver, Billy Clark, John Pantis, Cody Kline, Simon Egan, Danny Buccafusca, Paul Ennes and Jeff Cosgrove completed the top tem qualifiers.

Tommy Vroom Jr led the way in the Super Slingers with a time of 15.984 seconds per lap with Tom Arntz, Henry Anderson, Charlie Shaver and the returning Marc Daniels filling out the top five.

Taunton, Massachusetts wheelman Mick D'Agostino showed the fast lane to everyone in the Wingless 600 Micro qualifying with a time of 12.337 seconds around the Hamlin oval. Garden Staters and brothers Jeff and Hay Hartman were second and third with two time feature winner in 2011 Jonathan "The Incredible" Hull in fourth place and Michael Carber taking over the Barry Greth owned 600 and drive it a top five in qualifications. Ryan Greth, Molly Chambers, Bobby Butler, Brett Michalski and Shelby Harper completed the top ten qualifiers and D'Agostino claimed a $25.00 prize from J. Michalski and Sons Plumbing and Heating for being the fast timer.

The Dash for Cash had Michael Carber grabbing the lead of the six lap event on turn two of the first lap and held off the heavy footed Hartman brothers to claim the Dash victory. Jeff Hartman, Jay Hartman, Jonathan Hull, Mick D'Agsotino and Ryan Greth completed the finishers of the event. Carber captured the $50.00 posted by the HTMA 600 Pro Series for the win.

POCO-NOTES:

Despite the fact the forces of nature won out on this evening, a tip of the hat is in order for the hard working track staff who stayed in the trenches to assist Randy Smith in massaging the speedway back into shape after the storm hit. Credit also goes out to the drivers of the Slingshot and 600 Micro divisions for their efforts in establishing the track back to racing conditions. With the revised schedule now in place the speedway management encourages all racing fans to come out and have a look for themselves at one of the most exciting small division race tracks in the country and see why it is the "Premier Racing Facility In the Poconos".

Jacob Dunn and Dylan Martin captured the heat races for the Junior Slingers. Former Slingshot star Steve Van Valkenburg is doing well with his transition into the 600 Micros and captured a heat event and Jacob Hendershot continues to how the quick way around the speedway in his new Triple X Micro to capture the second heat. One B-Main was run off for the Wingless 600's and Billy Clark led all of the way to claim the victory. "The Sideways Slant" Grant Hilfiger raced from seventh place to claim the runner-up honors and the returning Luke Schostkewitz raced to third place with Rhett Long in fourth place, Tony Iudicello in fifth and Joey Kata claiming the final transfer spot.

Wayne Lesher from the HTMA 600 Pro Series was on hand for the evening with driver Ryan Greth. Greth captured the lone Pro Series event last season at the speedway in a great drive.

Former Slingshot star turned Spec Sportsman star at the Accord Speedway "The Concrete Kid" Kyle VanDuser was seen taking in the action. New Egypt Speedway Modified driver Vern McLaughlin was in competition driving Mike McLaughlin's hot rod in the Super Slinger action.

ACCORD SPEEDWAY NEWS

Accord, NY - Mother Nature Rains On Accord Speedway's Parade
By: Steve Pados, Accord Speedway Media

After rolling through two pre-season practice sessions and five straight weeks of racing excitement, Mother Nature was quick to demonstrate her supreme authority by surrounding the entire East Coast with huge storm fronts that seemingly attack the landscape from all directions. The unfortunate turn of events has halted any chance of racing activity happening at the Accord Speedway on Friday evening. The storm patterns have created the domino effect in the Northeast as just about every race track in the tri-state area will remain dark for the evening. In announcing the cancellation Accord Promoter Gary Palmer stated, "While we had a glimmer of hope we could go racing tonight, the unpredictable weather picture in the area has forced us to reconsider taking the gamble and with the economy in constant turmoil, we don't want our loyal drivers, owners and fans to make the trip to the speedway and be forced to return home due to the weather. Getting the word out early will enable everyone to make alternate plans for the evening and look forward to the great racing we will present next week".

The focus will now shift to May 27th when the headline sponsor for the evening is Camper's Barn RV Store and the six division racing card is highlighted by the VP Fuels/Rhinebeck Ford Modified division that will pay $2,000.00 to the winner who steers his race car into the Lucas Oil Products winners circle. The airwaves are always buzzing with excitement as to what one might expect to happen at the "Gem in the Catskills" speedplant and the one week delay will only increase the hype and will allow for a few of the racers that have not yet had their race cars out to the speedway to gain an extra week to button down the equipment for a run at the Accord roses. The Palmer Family has been in control of the Accord facility since late 2000 and this the eleventh season of successful operations since they took over the ownership of the speedway.

All feature events for the Modifieds will offer $2,000.00 to the winner.The Friday night racing will culminate with the running of the King of the Catskills weekend set for September 23rd and 24th. The yet to be determined format of the ROC Modified portion of the event will once again see $7,000.00 awaiting the winner of the feature event in the Lucas Oil Products winners circle. A series of qualifiers are in place in conjunction with other area speedways in an effort to have all of the speedways working together in a cohesive manner. The American Racer East Coast Modified Cup program is in place at Accord and will provide additional opportunities for the drivers and teams in 2011. The Accord Speedway management is appreciative of all of the assistance they have received from track sponsors Lucas Oil Products, VP Fuels and American Racer, all divisions sponsors Rhinebeck Ford, Camper's Barn, DC Landscaping, Healey Brothers Group, Arkel Motors and Ruge's Part Centers as well as all of the many speedway billboard sponsors and the great fan base for their continuous support of the great racing found at the Accord Speedway.

Midweek Madness will kick-off on June 8th and the speedway will once again have a diverse group of racing divisions entertaining the fans with the quick-hitting show. Quads up to 100cc, Go-Karts, three divisions of Slingshots, 270 winged Micros, 600 Micros, Legends, Bandoleros, 4-Cylinder Juniors and 4-Cylinder Seniors will all be going to war on the Accord high banks and the addition of all of the exciting new divisions will produce some excellent side by side racing on the ultra-wide channeled speedway.

Admission for the great racing action remains the same from a season ago as Adults (12+) will be $12.00; Children (11 and under) will be $3.00. Indoor Seating is $20.00. The Family Value Pack that was met with much success last season is once again offered and is: 2 Adults, 2 Children, and $20.00 in food vouchers for $40.00, a savings of $10.00 to the consumer. Pit Gates open at the speedway at 4:30 and Spectator Gates open at 5. Hot laps kick off at 6:30 and the racing is slated to start at 7 PM.

Racing every Friday night from April through September. May 27th finds Camper's Barn Night headlining the action at the speedway with the Legends division returning to action.

Skyline to Open Gates Friday, May 20

STEWART, OHIO-Try, Try, Try again! As one of the worst Springs in documented weather history delayed the 46th opening day for Skyline Speedway, the Mid-Ohio Valley's Premier Dirt race track will finally try to open this Friday, May 20. Skyline will open for the 2011 season with four exciting classes of cars, AMRA Late Models, OVSCA 410 Outlaw Sprint Cars, AMRA Modifieds, and Front Wheel Drive (FWD) Four Cylinders. Skyline will not be running Pure Stocks in 2011. The Mini-Wedges open their season next Friday, May 27.

Leading the charge into the 2011 season will be 2010 Season Champions Christ Garnes, Late Models; Jimmy Stinson, OVSCA Sprints; Kenny Johnson, AMRA Modifieds; Tommy Adkins, Four Cylinders; and Ryan Wilson, Pure Stocks. Will Holland was the Mini-Wedge Champ.

A week of early rain shouldn't damper the spirit this week as a few decent days last week allowed the track crew to get the track near racing shape. "Thursday and Friday look promising," says owner Billy Jarrell. "We are all excited to get started in 2011."

Skyline averaged 35 late models last season and is looking for no less in 2011.

Once again fans are urged to support their local dirt tracks in a big way this season as three Ohio Tracks (Wayne Co., Rocky Top, and Midway) were lost to the economy last season alone. "No matter what your favorite track is, we ask that you--the fans-- support it in a big way," said Publicist Scott Wolfe. "Once you lose a track, it is hard to bring it back."
"We have to get new fans into the sport we all love, and the only way to do that is to bring someone new to the races and hopefully get them hooked."

Skyline will once again offer promotions throughout the season, starting with Bicycle Races next weekend May 27 for the kids. Admission for Adults is $15, Senior Citizens $12, and Children under 12 are free.

HAMLIN SPEEDWAY NEWS

Hamlin, PA - Hamlin Speedway Turns Back Mother Nature To Ignite A Great Evening of Racing Excitement
By: Steve Pados, GA Motorsports Media

With Mother Nature trying her best to deflate the hearts of those of us who live for the excitement that the world of motorsports brings to them, the Smith Family refused to yield and overcame a quick hitting shower during the first hot lap session at the speedway to produce another quality seven division racing program that had the fans on their way home at 10:35 PM. The immediate area surrounding the Hamlin Speedway, located in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania, were totally awash to the south of the speedway but the Smith Family and staff forged on and after the storm subsided the call for racers to assist in running in the track was met without hesitation and with just a short delay the racing kicked-off quickly and through the total co-operation of everyone involved the exciting racing action gave everyone in attendance another exceptional night of entertainment. Buoyed by a field of 130 plus racers that was fueled by cancellations elsewhere, the seven feature program and the dual heat format for the Mid Atlantic Gold Tour Slingshots, the racing was signed, sealed and delivered with seven more winners gracing victory lane and Simon Egan earning the $500.00 prize for his winning efforts after a heated dual with 2009 National Slingshot Champion Cody Kline who finished as the runner-up.

The Mid Atlantic Gold Tour event for the Slingshots was the last event on the schedule but the headline attraction for the great evening of racing entertainment. Keystone Stater Cody Kline and New Jersey invader Matt Dealaman brought the 24-car starting field down for the green flag and it was Kline flexing his muscles early on with a drive into turn one to grab the lead with Dealaman following. Egan, who captured a win earlier in the week at Kutztown, was on the move early from his 10th place start as was speedway newcomer Robbie Hocker and within a few laps Hocker was able to slip by Dealaman and set sail for Kline who was on a roll himself in his Weaver Home Improvements sponsored racing chariot. Kline was able to drive away from the field at each restart but Egan's advances were from from over as he slipped by Hocker and began to give chase the Kline. In clean air it was Kline adding to his lead until a caution flag brought the field together on lap-21. When racing resumed, it was Egan on the attack and the two driving stars waged a war for the gold on all corners. Egan went for broke with a high side drive into turn one and kept up the momentum up and then bolted to the inside of turn two to pull even with Kline as they raced down the backstretch. In turn three Egan completed the pass but Kline was back at the left door of Egan coming out of turn four. The pair left it all on the racetrack as Egan assumed complete control of the event in turn one. Egan led the remaining laps to claim the win in his S&S Speedway car with Kline in for the runner-up role. Robbie Hocker was third in a great drive and Bill Clark from 13th and Matt Dealaman completed the top five. JR Fulper, Mack Brink, Jeff Cosgrove, Kyle Rutledge and Charlie Lawrence completed the top ten. 32 Slingshot racers signed in to do battle and lending further credence to the fact the Hamlin Speedway is the number one Slingshot speedway in the country today.

Billy Clark and Brett Arndt made up the front row for the Wingless 600 Micro feature attraction. Clark grabbed the lead at the start and was getting some great drives off of the corners as behind him Arndt and Jonathan Hull were locked up in their own dual. Hull broke away from Arndt with a nifty pass and set sail for Clark. The battle behind the leaders was intense as racing could get for as many as six drivers were all making their own kind of magic with their great drives to the front. Kyle Lick became a player from the top of the raceway and seventh place starting Ryan Smith would do likewise as the multi-grooved facility stood up well to the onslaught of the three wide racing activities. Meanwhile as the race was close to midway, "The Incredible" Hull found the needed room to go topside, quickly change lanes and drove underneath Clark to grab the lead in what would be the winning move for the event. Hull was the winner with Kyle Lick in the runner-up role in a tremendous drive and Clark in third. Smith used a borrowed ride to snag fourth place and Jay Hartman used some great moves from tenth starting place to compete the top five. Brett Arndt, Brett Michalski, Grant Hilfiger, Joseph J Smith and Shannon Smith completed the top ten.

The Rookie 600 event found pole sitter Justin Brewster grabbing the lead at the start of the event and leading all of the way in a caution marred event that saw only eight of the twenty laps completed before the time limit ran out on the event. Austin Burke was the runner-up with Jeffrey Anderson, James "Philip" Morris and the "Storm Trooper" Carl Mease finishing up the top five.

The Rookie 270 Micro action found Milford, New Jersey's Makenzie Harper grab the lead at the drop of the green flag and blister the field in a wire to wire triumph. Scott Avery was the runner-up with Connecticut's Grady Johnston in third, and TJ Lilly finishing up fourth for the cars running at the end of the event.

Easton resident Tim Manieri Jr shook off a long lapse from racing to return to the driver's seat after Mark Manieri suffered a broken leg in the spring and led the first eleven laps of the 270 Micro Sprint main before yielding to Darin Bartholomew in one of the Widdos racing entries. Bartholomew jumped the restart and would later be penalized two positions for the infraction. CJ Heinig would assume command of the lead and the race was stopped with 22-laps in due to time restraints. Heinig was the winner with Kurt Bettler in the runner-up role and Bartholomew in third place. Last week's winner, Gene Burd recovered from an early spin to race his way back to fourth place and the high flying Robbie Watson completed the top five.

In Super Slinger action, the "Pride of Pen Argyl" Dale Reed took full advantage of a front row starting spot and quickly established himself as the man to beat as he raced away from the field early on in the event. Mount Cobb gunslinger Henry Anderson moved in to challenge and closely followed Reed as the laps clicked off. On lap eleven as the leader came up on slower traffic, the Herb Finger car was in the middle of the racetrack and leader Reed went to the top and second place man Anderson went to the bottom of the race way. Finger connected with Reed and Anderson casually slipped way with the lead and led the remaining laps to earn his second consecutive win at the speedway. Wes Hearn continued his great early season work to claim second place with Jimmy Johnston in third place and the tough with luck Dale Reed ending up in fourth place. Bob Clark completed the top five.

The Junior Slingshot event was the day of the tornado as the "Little Tornado" Zack Weisenfluh grabbed the lead at the start of the twenty lap excursion around the Hamlin clay and wired the field despite a late charge from Chris Kurtz. who ended up in second place. Dylan Martin used a late rally to claim third place money and Kyle Gruber and Accord regular Tommy Zwart completed the top five.

POCO-NOTES:

The cloudy weather after the rain went away made for a cool evening of witnessing the racing action but another great crowd was on hand to cheer for the great driving stars who converge on Hamlin for some great racing excitement. Thanks to the tidings of Mother Nature, Randy Smith did not have to utilize the moisture machine at the speedway and the track remained extremely racy throughout the course of the evening.

The largest fields of Slingshot race cars in the country continue to make their way into the Pocono Mountains to try their hand at mastering the 1/5 mile playground of the Hamlin facility. With 32 stout competitors vying for 25 positions, the competition was over the top and lends credence to the fact it is tough to defeat the Hamlin regulars on their home turf and just as tough to beat them when they travel out to try other speedways. Good competition makes for better drivers and the talented roster of Hamlin driving stars can be proud of their achievements at home and on the road.

The crazy weather pattern brought some visitors to the speedway as Burgers jack of all trades Announcer/Flagger Bobby Stull made a visit to Hamlin. Bobby enjoyed his evening at the speedway and spent time on the grounds, in the stands and in the tower talking with longtime friend and Hamlin Announcer Steve Pados. Bobby joins the Pados Brothers at many of the off-season functions in doing interviews and assisting in making each event a showcase presentation including his great work in the four year old ARCO sponsored Dirt Track Heroes show held at the Phillipsburg Mall in New Jersey.

John Bockhorn, who captured the Slingshot main event one week ago, joined the Pados Brothers on their highly successful CARQUEST Gasoline Alley TV/Internet Show last Monday evening and did a fabulous interview on the show as throughout the season the show will attract as many as 60 Slingshot drivers to the show to talk about their careers in racing or their latest win on the circuit and then funnel in to the off season shows where the Pados Brothers appear.

Alex Curley, a regular last season at the speedway, made his first visit to the speedway and "The Minuteman" encountered some problems but it was great to see him back in action at the speedway. ARC Midget rookie Brendan Bright hopped a ride in one of the Chamber Racing chariots but a mishap in front of him left him no where to go and he was on the business end of the tow truck during the feature. Geordan Farry made her first stop to the speedway and raced to a fourteenth place run in her first Hamlin outing in her new race car. Nicole Quinter, Tony Scerbo and JJ Uliana were among the Borger regulars who gave Hamlin a whirl on Saturday evening. Bobby Flood also made his first Hamlin appearance in his sharp looking All Seasons Fuel hot rod. The "Flash" is a former Rookie champion at the Accord Speedway.

Zane Zeiner Dominates in Mountain Late Model Feature Before Rains Files In


By: Gene Ostrowski

May 15, 2011



St. Johns, PA- Hoping to fight off threatening rain showers, the staff at Mountain Speedway was determined to get Sunday’s show in without a glitch. It almost worked perfectly, as three of four features were completed before the rains came six laps into the Sport Modified feature. Zane Zeiner of Bath, PA dominated the Late Model feature and secured his second win of the season. Scott Hubler of Coplay, PA notched his second INEX Legends victory of the season and Rich Paciotti of Kunkletown, PA held off several strong Factory Stock competitors to notch his first career victory.

Rick Smith started from the pole position in the 30-lap Late Model feature and was challenged by Mike Sweeney with a bold three wide move on the opening lap. Sweeney tired to get underneath Smith and Adam Cox but the door closed in turn one and Smith went around.

Green flag racing resumed and Kyle Harvell took command over Zane Zeiner, Cox, Craig Lutz and Sweeney.

Zeiner hounded the leader and made the inside pass for the lead stick in lap one on lap seven. Harvell settled back into second as Zeiner began to drive away from the rest of the field.

The yellow flag was displayed when Harvell spun on lap 17. Following a handful of quick green flag laps the caution was displayed once more when without contact, Cox and Harvell both spun on the backstretch.

Zeiner was flawless on the restarts and went on to claim his second straight Late Model victory over Lutz, Sweeney, Harvell and Cox.

Rich Paciotti started from the pole position and led the opening circuit of the 20-lap Factory Stock feature over Chris Parry, Brandon Oltra, Paul Morgan, Jr. and Joey Barbush.

A quick yellow flag waved on lap three when Joe D’Angelo and Kenny Kleppinger tangled in turn two. Green flag racing resumed and Matt Schlenker cracked the top five.

Lap after lap, Parry stuck to Paciotti’s rear bumper until a yellow flag waved when Oltra and Morgan tangled in turn three on lap 14. With six laps remaining it was clear that the leader would have his hands full with Parry and third place runner, Schlenker.

Green flag racing resumed and Parry took the race lead on lap 15. Paciotti led the following circuit before Parry retook the lead on lap 17. The duo swapped positions once more and in the end it was Paciotti who took the checkers for his first career victory. Running side-by-side at the line, Schlenker edged Parry for second. Oltra and Barbush completed the top five.

Stephen Gual led the INEX Legends to the drop of the green flag in the 20-lap event before David Chapman overtook him for the race lead. Brandon DeBrakilmer held second in the early going, followed by Brandon Michael and Scott Hubler.

Hubler scooted by the cars in front of him and found himself in second. He challenged for the race lead and took the position on lap three.

Despite heavy pressure from DeBrakilmer in the early going, Hubler went on to notch his second victory of the season. DeBrakilmer finished second, followed by Michael and Raven Schrantz. Chapman completed the top five.

Rain halted the 40-lap Sport Modified feature during a yellow flag six laps in. The remaining 34 laps will be made up on Sunday, 5/15.

ACCORD SPEEDWAY NEWS

Accord, NY- Robbie Green Finds Silver Lining To Pocket Accord Speedway Gold On Powers NAPA Night
By: Steve Pados, Accord Speedway Media

After a beautiful week of great weather in the Catskills Mountains, the clouds rolled in to Ulster County on Friday morning. Throwing caution to the wind, Accord Speedway Promoters Gary and Donna Palmer challenged the weather and showcased a six division quick hitting show that placed some new winners into the Lucas Oil Products Winners Circle for the ultimate taste of the thrill of victory. The constant changing weather forecast brought in a late arriving crowd to the speedway but when all was said and done all were in agreement when leaving the facility they witnessed a great evening of racing excitement. The great weather during the week allowed Gary Palmer and his staff to apply all of their attention to the track surface and the racers were treated to a dust-free, multi-seamed raceway that saw four and five wide racing racing action taking place throughout the evenings' events that were completed at 10:49 PM as new race director John Wiacek continues to keep the six division show moving along with precision ease . The speedway offered more bite than a pack of wild coyotes and while slowing the speeds just a bit, the tight competition throughout the evening was textbook Accord style. Veteran Wallkill, New York racing hot shoe Robbie Green earned his place in the winners circle with a solid drive to capture the Modified win, the first win for any Modified driver at the speedway other than a Hearn or a Johnson in the tough Modified ranks. The evening of events were sponsored by Powers NAPA and the four store chain had representatives on hand all night long to greet the fans and offered up NAPA hats and mini-basketballs throughout the evening at the "Gem in the Catskills" facility.

2010 Modified rookie of the Year Geoff Quackenbush and hard riding Bobby Hentschel brought the 24-car VP Fuel-Rhinebeck Ford Modified division starting field to the line and it was Hentschel from the outside line grabbing the early lead as he sizzled the clay from the top of the raceway. Modified rookie stars Anthony Perrego and Michael Sabia joined in the mix and Green was finding available real estate on the bottom of the raceway. Sabia pulled up lame on lap-6 and the restart brought Michael Storms into the picture. Storms, who captured a win last week at OCFS, has been a pleasant addition to the speedway and now raced with the leaders as Hentschel continued to dominate the early racing action. Mel Schrufer and Richard Smith got together to bring out the caution and on the restart, Green began to assert himself as he disposed of Storms and would follow suit to slip by the hard driving Perrego. The action behind the front runners was absolutely breathtaking as one by one the heavy hitters began to adjust their race cars to make their moves forward. Green would grab the lead from Hentschel on a 13th lap restart and then hell broke loose one lap later. Mel Schrufer, Danny Johnson and Mike Ricci were racing for position down the backstretch on lap-14 when Schrufer slid into Ricci who was forced into Danny Johnson. "The Doctor" vaulted over the rear wheel of Ricci and went for a wild ride on the boiler plate much like an amusement park ride as he four-wheeled the boiler plate, crossed the backstretch exit gate and mounted the Redi-Rock International third turn fence where the race car turned around and landed back on the racetrack facing traffic. Johnson was uninjured in the scary mishap but was through for the evening in one of the most spectacular racing incidents ever witnessed at the speedway.

When racing continued, Green chose the bottom lane where he was enjoying success and quickly showed the hot hand with a great restart to lead the event. Perrego, who would later lose two spots for jumping the restart, was challenging and the racing took on a give and take flair as the drivers jockeyed for an opening to the front. Andy Bachetti, who has endured a share of early season woes, was the "Wild Child" as he found the top and the bottom seams to his liking and wheel-twisted the car to the front. Jeff Hoetzler, who too has had a few early season problems, was textbook on the bottom of the raceway as he raced into contention. The final laps were clicking off and it was Green feeling the pressure from Perrego and Bachetti. In the end it was the "Rocket" Robbie Green cashing in at the payoff window in a great run for the Accord gold. Andy Bachetti was the runner-up with Michael Storms in third and Perrego fourth after the penalty assessment. Jeff Heotzler completed the top five finishers. Point leader Brett Hearn was sixth with Bobby Hentschel, Jerry Higbie, Danny Tyler and Justin Holland filling out the top ten.

The Camper's Barn Sportsman main event featured Kevin Ward seeking his fourth consecutive win of the 2011 racing season. Darrell Ford grabbed the early lead and was quickly challenged by Jeff Hulseapple and David Coene. Ford held on for eight laps before yielding to ninth place starting "The Hurri-shane" Shane Jablonka who raced through the quality field with relative ease in his march to the front. Once in front Jablonka was able to lead the way despite a couple of cautions that brought the sizzling Ward to the front. On the final restart it was now Jablonka and Ward duking it out for the win and Ward threw all he had at Jablonka but this was the night for Jablonka as he drove to his first win of the season. Kevin Ward was the runner-up with Darrell Ford, Steve Meilleur, from 13th starting place and Jesse Marks completing the top five.

The Healey Brother Group Spec Sportsman event had Whitey Slavin earning a front row starting spot alongside of Danny Cross and the early laps proved to a great Slavin-Cross dual as the pair raced together for the lead with Slavin in front. With as many as six drivers putting themselves in a position to challenge for the win, Slavin was up to the task as Danny Cross, Mike DuBois, Phil Recchio, Kenny Hinsch, Matt Hitchcock and Kyle Rohner were all advancing through the field. Rohner worked the bottom of the racetrack to perfection as he slipped by the great field of drivers to move into the runner-up role. On the fourteenth lap Danny Cross saw his valiant drive go out the window as he threw a left rear wheel from the race car and brought out the caution. This turn of events brought about a six lap shootout between Slavin and Rohner. Back to green flag racing, Slavin stayed on the shelf while Rohner kept pace from the bottom. Rohner was able to get close but it was Whitey Slavin grabbing his first win of the new Accord racing season. Rohner was the runner-up in a great drive from the back and Mike DuBois, Kenny Hinsch and Phil Recchio completed the top five finishers.

In the DC Landscaping Pro Stock division, Joe Mennite led the first lap before yielding to Tom Vasta. Vasta looked strong as he was able to build up a fair advantage over the rest of the field. An incident on lap-12 slowed the field and when racing resumed it was John Roese and his Ford powered hot rod knocking on Vasta's door. Four laps later it was Roese finding room to make a run at Vasta and coming off of turn four lowered the boom to take over the point and drive to his second consecutive win of the season. Vasta was second in a great drive and Al Christiana continued his great work in his return to racing with another top three finish. Jimmy Sykes and John Rood completed the top five.

The Arkel Motors Pure Stock event saw hard luck racer Jerry Craig grab the lead at the start and lead until bad luck struck him again with a right rear sneaker losing oxygen after five laps in the lead. Ray Tarantino became the new leader and appeared to be on his way to victory. "The Rebel" Tim Brown had ideas of a victory of his own as he remained in contention throughout the event, made his advances at Tarantino and waited until he found a head of steam off of turn two on the fourteenth lap to surge alongside of Tarantino and wrangle away the lead when the pair of racers got to the third turn. Brown was in command and took the white flag and the lead the final lap to claim his first win of the season at Accord. Ray Tarantino was the runner-up with defending champion Kyle Wright in third, Joe Narok in fourth and Joel Murns rounding out the top five.

The Legends race cars squared off a in great battle between Richie Van Orden and newcomer Jim Black from the Keystone State. Van Orden was the early race leader but
Black was dogging him from lap two as the pair raced closely together. Black saw daylight off of turn two on lap five to size control of the point and go on to capture the win in his first appearance of the season. Van Orden was the runner-up in a close dual and Matthew Gaughan continues to learn the craft of his new division of racing to claim a third place finish. Former ARDC Midget racer Bing Metz recently came out of retirement and purchased a Legend car to pick up where he left off. Metz, whose son Blu is the PR Director of the ATQMRA, raced last year in a guest stint in the pavement series and decided then to return as a competitor. Metz came with a sharp looking couple bodied mount but unfortunately encountered motor problems in hot laps to hinder his return to racing. The Metz name in racing is a legacy as Bing's father Junie was a flagger at many speedways in the Northeast including Nazareth, OCFS and Dorney Park and is a Hall of Fame inductee because of his notoriety as a top flagger in his era.


MUDPLUGS:

For racing fans who may have missed an issue of the exciting editions of the speedway publication "The Accordian", may purchase a back issue on a first come, first serve basis by contacting Sara Fredericks at the speedway box-office. Drivers already featured in the 2011 programs include Jerry Higbie, Kyle Rohner, Anthony Perrego, Danny Tyler and Richie Eurich. Sponsorship opportunities exist in the weekly publication and local businesses should contact Sara Fredericks at the speedway office for further details.

Gary Palmer and his speedway staff continue to work their weekly magic on the race to the walls facility. After hot lap action created a heavier than usual berm, Palmer and Charlie Rose took to the speedway with the water trucks and quickly smoothed out the surface for the heat racing action and repeated the process a couple of times throughout the evening to provide the drivers a wall to wall racing facility. The extra effort with attention to detail created a smooth racing surface for the feature events the drivers could really grab a hold of during the night of competition. The tacky surface provided an extra amount of race-bite and while it slowed the track a bit from the previous week, the three, four and sometimes five channels of racing were all utilized to create a great night of racing entertainment. Robbie Green ignited the clocks in hot laps as he flirted with the 13 second barrier and the top fifteen cars were all within three tenths of a second of each other and from one season ago at the same time the track was two tenths of a second faster... definitely a tip of the Fedora to Gary Palmer and staff.

Three heats were needed to set the feature event VP Fuels/Rhinebeck Ford Modified division. Jeff Heotzler, Richard Smith and Mel Schrufer captured the Modified heat wins. Jeff Hulseapple, Vinny DeCicco and David Coene captured the Sportsman heats while Kyle Rohner, Phil Recchio and Kyle Van Duser were the winners of the Spec Sportsman heat events. Al Christiana and Tom Vasta secured win the Pro Stock heats while Joe Narok and Jerry Craig were the victors of the Pure Stock heats. Jim Black made it a clean sweep in the Legends as he captured the lone heat event for the motorcycle powered creations.

New drivers continue to make their way to the speedway battles. Sportsman drivers on hand for the first time in 2011 included Mike Traver and Brian Coulter. New Spec Sportsman drivers included AJ Williams, Bryanna Hurban and Tyler Dippel. New Pure Stock racers included Jerry Harten and John Woinosk. While the owners and drivers continue to struggle for the needed finances to compete on a weekly basis, the tight competition remains at a fever pitch as the drivers always do a great job of entertaining the great Accord fan base. Mike Skelly took his second ride in the back-up Darrell Ford mount and continues to find his comfort zone in racing on the dirt surfaces.

The Readout Valley Rod & Gun Club will host their 1st Annual Outdoor Youth Expo on June 4th at the Elders Farm on Route 209 in Accord, New York. Events include BB Gun Shooting, Archery, Trapping Demos, Trout Fishing pond, Fly Tying and Casting Demo and many additional Demonstrations and Hands on event.

Curt McDade of Carlisle won the the Road Warrior feature. Blaine Leppo of Spring Grove won the non-stop 15-lap Legends Cars feature event.

 

In Late Model action, Steve Billet, who started fourth, grabbed the lead on the first lap and continued to lead the first ten laps. A caution flag waved on lap 10, bunching up the field behind Billet. This put 11th place started Grant Adams on his rear bumper. On the restart, Adams took the lead away from Billet with Gene Knaub taking over the runner-up spot on the next circuit. For the remainder of the race, Knaub tried several times to take the lead but Adams was perfect as he never made a mistake and took the checkered flag for the victory. Knaub settled for second, followed by Justin Ehrhart and Billet. Jake Lettich turned in a strong run to round out the top five. Bob Minnich, Larry Baer and Knaub were heat race victors.

Pickel and Mat Wampler were heat race winners.

Nester and Johnny Palm were the heat race winners earlier in the night.

 

The 15-lap Road Warrior feature event saw Daryl Sipe lead laps one and two with Curt McDade taking over the top spot on the third circuit.

Brian Lefebvre finished third with Robert Pyle and Jeff Svendsen rounding out the top five. Robert Pyle was the heat race winner.

Sprints, Mini Sprints, Advanced Services Modifieds and Hobby Stocks Saturday, May 14

CHILLCOTHE, OHIO- For the first time this season Schrader's K-C Raceway will host four exciting divisions-Goodyear 410 Sprints, Mini Sprints, Advanced Services Modifieds and Dan Reno Hobby Stocks-- this Saturday, May 14. Last weekend K-C was rained out for the fourth time this season; thus rain checks will be good this Saturday.

After much deliberation and the result of listening to the racing community, K-C Raceway will once again implement qualifications for 410 Sprint Cars and Late Models.

Said owner Jeff Schrader, "We wanted to keep the show rolling and speed up the nightly program, but we had an overwhelming number of drivers indicate that they wanted to time trial in the sprints and late models. Likewise, fans expressed the desire to see the top divisions qualify."

"We will still keep the show rolling," said Schrader. "With so many forms of entertainment out there we have to keep the show exciting and moving right along. With Time Trials we will just have to work harder to get fans home at a decent hour."

Coming May 28 is Veteran's Appreciation night with the second annual Dan Reno Memorial Hobby Stock Race sponsored by Miller Beer. Also on the card are Late Models, Sprints and Advanced Services Modifieds.

A reminder to all competitiors: K-C Raceway will be using RaceCeivers at every race in 2011.

HAMLIN SPEEDWAY NEWS

Hamlin, PA - Gene Burd Flies High In Wire To Wire Triumph To Spotlight Hamlin Speedway Winners Circle
By: Steve Pados, GA Motorsports Media

While thunderstorms in the immediate surrounding area kept the weather picture unpredictable, the highly successful Hamlin Speedway promotional team of Randy and Denise Smith threw caution to the wind and rolled the dice to present another spectacular and entertaining racing card for the great fans and the seven divisions of racing talent that filled the Hamlin Speedway speed arena last evening. With 133 entries signed in to do battle at the Smith Family's Pocono Mountains playground, the racing format changed to round robin time trials and feature events as the top-notch race staff quickly amended the racing card and presented an exciting show that showed excellent competition in all racing divisions. When all was said and done, the Dickie Keiper Racing Supplies sponsored evening saw defending 270 Micro Sprint track champion Gene "The Machine" Burd borrow the Widdos Racing entry for the evening and go on to capture the Micro Dash and later collect the $750.00 barrel of cash in a wire to wire run to victory in the 270 Micro Sprint challenge event. "Thrillin" Dylan Martin captured his second consecutive win in the Junior Slingshot feature, and new 2011 event winners included John Bockhorn in the Slingshots, Henry Anderson in the Super Slingers, Justin Brewster in the Rookie 600's, Connecticut invader Jonathan Hull in the Regular 600's and Luke Kroboth in the rookie 270's. With an abundance of racing talent on the grounds, each feature attraction took on new meaning with the many seasoned veterans and stars of tomorrow performing their special brand of magic on the racy and well manicured 1/5 mile speedway.

Kicking off the feature racing action found the Junior Slingshots taking to the Hamlin oval for their 20-lap feature event. Mohnton, Pennsylvania hot shoe Jacob Dunn grabbed the lead at the start and early on threatened to make a runaway of the exciting action. Newcomer Tyler Peet lost the handle on lap twelve and took a hard hit against the Jersey barrier in turn four bringing out the caution. Peet, a first year future star, was unhurt in the incident but a tad shaken up. When racing resumed, Martin took advantage of the slow starting Dunn and pulled up alongside of him in the middle of the homestretch and grabbed the lead driving into turn one. Dunn tried to counter but Martin was quicker off of the corners and led the remaining laps to claim his second consecutive Hamlin win and third win of the season in Slingshot competition. Jacob Dunn, in an excellent drive, was the runner-up with 12th place starting Chris Kurtz racing to a third place finish. Kyle Gruber was fourth and Caitlin Henneforth rounded out the top five.

Former Slingshot racer Justin Brewster led wire to wire to claim his first win the rookie 600 Micro event but the race was exciting from the drop of the first green flag as New Egypt Speedway Sportsman star "Iron" Mike Butler took his first ride in a 600 as a birthday present from his brother track champion Bobby Butler and the Atlantic City Slingshot winner didn't disappoint as he quickly found the fast way around the oval using a variety of moves to chase Brewster to the finish line to claim the runner-up honors to the quick running "Jet'.
Jamie Czekai is enjoying his new status in the rookie 600's as he finished third in a great drive with another former Slingshot racer Danielle Dickinson in fourth and Tim Howell completing the top five.

Joe Bodenschatz, in his Strupp Racing entry, took command of the Super Slinger feature from his pole start and was quickly pressured by division champion Paul Ennes, Tommy Vroom Jr and Henry Anderson as the racing heated up lap after lap. Vroom fell by the wayside on lap fifteen and a restart was needed to assist him from the racetrack. When racing resumed Anderson was all about pressure as he maneuvered his Mike Griffin State Farm Insurance sponsored hot rod to the point with an inside move in turn three. Once in front, Anderson withstood a late charge from Dale Kober to capture the win. Bodenschatz was third in a great effort with Aaron Henneforth in fourth and Paul Ennes completing the top five finishers.

The 600 Micro feature action had Connecticut driving star Jonathan Hull blasting out of the starting blocks to lead the way in the star-studded main event for the wingless warriors but a first lap mishap between two spinning cars left Joe Kata no place to go and he went upside down ending his night early on. When racing resumed it was Hull on the hammer as he was able to maintain his lead throughout the entire event and go on to capture his first win of the new season at Hamlin. Bridgewater, New Jersey driving star Jeff Hartman finished in the runner-up role with hard driving Brett Michalski finishing third, Kyle Lick from 12th position finished fourth in an excellent ride, and "The Conductor" Bobby Butler completed the top five. Billy Clark, Jay Hartman, hard luck kid Tony Iudicello, Shayne Ely and Brian Gilmore completed the top ten finishers.

Luke Kroboth jumped out front at the start of the rookie 270 Micro main event and captured his first win of the season with a solid wire to wire run. The vastly improved Hayden Miller was the runner-up with opening night winner Cheyanne Schaffer finishing up in third place. Makenzie Harper and TJ Lilly completed the top five.

Bloomingdale, New Jersey talent John Bockhorn out-gunned Simon Egan at the start of the headliner for the Slingshot race cars and maintained his lead early on despite the constant pressure from Egan. Egan tried high and low to slip by the leader but Bockhorn was up to the challenge as he controlled the point with his great drives off of the top of the raceway. Sixth place starting Cody Kline became a player at the midway point of race and Egan soon had to play a bit of defense to keep the 2009 National champion at bay. As the race drew to the latter stages, Kline was able get a great run off of the bottom of turn two to slip by Egan and set sail for the leader. While it appeared that lapped traffic may become a factor in the event, a late caution flag flew to slow the field once more. The final green flag saw Bockhorn with his hands full with Kline throwing everything he had at him in his Billy Weaver owned racer and as the checkered flag flew from starter Russ Furry it was the Creative Auto Interior sponsored hot rod of John Bockhorn prevailing to score his first win of the new season at Hamlin. Kline was second in an excellent showing with Egan peddling hard to make it a three way fight for the win but settling for third place money. Dale Kober used a late race charge to claim fourth place with Henry Anderson finishing up in fifth. Newcomer Don Schmidt continuing his great early season work to finish in sixth place with Jimmy Johnston, Colin White, Russell Benke and rookie Eddie Strada completing the top ten. Most insiders at the speedway agreed the feature run was without question one of the most entertaining and competitive Slingshot feature events they had ever witnessed as 21 of the 24 starters were all within striking distance when the race was completed.

Track champion Gene Burd began the headliner for the 270 Micro Sprints at the point and as quickly as the race went green a tip-over for Connecticut driving star CJ Heinig slowed the pace. Heinig was able to restart the event. When racing resumed, Kyle Rutledge, in the former Mike Esposito ride, went upside down to halt the action and also claimed Shannon Smith in the incident. Back to green flag racing when the track was cleared, Burd was up to the task as he was able to put a ton of distance on the field until "The Boss" Ross Perchak drove into the picture. Perchak was utilizing the same race car Ryan Smith won with a week ago and once he cleared the quick running "Hurricane" Harlee Schaffer was able to close in on Burd but sensing the challenge Burd turned up the wick and blistered the speedway with a new one-lap track record of 11.548 seconds to drive his way into the Hamlin Speedway Victory Circle. Perchak was the runner-up in a great drive with Schaffer in third and Pennsylvania invader Richie "The Kid" Hartman making a rare appearance to finish up in fourth place. Tommy Kunsman Jr completed the top five. Larry Hoagland appears to have shaken off his tough luck from, a season ago to head up the second five with New Englander Todd Bertrand, Robbie Watson and teammates Matt Mountz and Trevor Dunn completing the top ten.


POCO-NOTES:

The early season action at Hamlin thus far has produced excellent side by racing action and despite the unpredictable weather had a great field of race cars and a nice crowd on hand to witness the exciting racing action. The many special events scheduled for the 2011 racing season will continue to reap rewards for the Smith Family and their stout promotional efforts at the speedway. The abundant field of race cars once again showed five states being represented in the final tally of entrants to the speedway.

The "Flying Dutchman" Richie Van Orden took in the evening's events at the speedway. Van Orden has made the successful transition to the Legend series race cars and has already claimed a win at the Accord Speedway earlier in the season.

Robbie Watson was the fast timer of the evening for the 270 Micros despite the fact he lost a wheel in the hot lap sessions. Watson was able to make quick repairs to come out and stop the transponders at 11.819 second for the fast lap. Richie Hartman, a former track champion at the nearby but now defunct Lake Mocatek Speedway, was second fast time time as his fondness for the Pocono clay had him timing at 11.936 seconds for his fast time. Gene Burd, CJ Heinig, Ross Perchak, Harlee Schaffer, Nunzi Allegrucci, Tommy Kunsman Jr, Todd Bertrand and Larry Mekic completed the top ten timers for the 270's.

Gene Burd made it a clean sweep when he also dominated the six lap Dash presented by Dickie Keiper Racing Supplies. Schaffer, Perchak, Hartman, Heinig and Watson was the finishing order for the quick dash.

With the evening reverting to the time trials, two B-Mains were required to establish the starting line-up for the Slingshot headliner. Eddie Strada captured the first one over Mack Brink, Billy Weaver and newcomer Hunter Smith, while the second event was claimed by Cory Haab in a great drive over Paul Ennes, Kyle Rode and Mike Fogler.

New faces at the speedway for the 270's included Ross Perchak in a guest role while Todd Bertrand, Kendall Segar and Matt Seymour from the New England States added some chowder to the entry list. Stan Wall took over the Ziggy Thomashunis mount from a week ago but didn't make the feature cut. Former go karter Ryan Lacoe was on hand in his first Slingshot start and John Rooks Sr and Jr were both on hand in their first Hamlin starts of the season. Tommy Vroom Jr made his first start and had a fast mount under him until problems took him out of the main event. Kevin Olver also made his first start of the season. Long-time Slingshot proponent Johnny Drake made a rare appearance at Hamlin but was an early retiree. PJ Dempsey made his initial appearance of the season but was involved in an early skirmish. Don Keppers and Shelby Ogazaly made appearances in the rookie 600's and Matt Dealaman also made an appearance in the Slingshots. New Juniors on hand included Abbey Price, Allison Kaminski and Taylor Eccles

ACCORD SPEEDWAY NEWS

Accord, NY- No Jet Lag As Brett Hearn Scores Second 2011 Accord Speedway Triumph
By: Steve Pados, Accord Speedway Media

A beautiful but very breezy spring day in the Catskill Mountains ushered in another exciting night of ground-pounding madness as once again the faithful fans of the Accord Speedway were treated to some of the best short track racing that can be found in the country today. The pit area swelled with 110 race cars and the exciting six-feature race card was completed at 10:39 PM. Executing their need for speed on a perfectly prepared and manicured speedplant, the daredevils of motorsports were clicking the transponders at near record times throughout the course of the evening's events that were headlined for the evening by Radio Station WRWD 107.3 FM in the Hudson Valley and their "Continuous Country Favorites" format. Promoter Gary Palmer and his staff have spent many long mid-week hours performing their magic on the race track track and the excellence in grooming brought about four and sometimes five-wide racing throughout the course of the evening.

Geoff Quackenbush and Bobby Hentschel were to be the front line starters for the start of the VP Fuels/Rhinebeck Ford Modified 30-lap feature excursion but the bad luck continued for the "Quack Attack" as he was unable to take the green flag. The situation brought "The Iceman" Dom Roselli to the front line and when the feature went green Roselli iced over the rest of the field as he moved out a big advantage in the early laps of the event. Behind Roselli things heated up quickly as Hentschel, Robbie Green and Rick Mill all became players. A caution slowed the field on lap seven but when racing resumed it was Roselli showing the hot hand as the racing moved into the halfway point. From the mid-pack starters, Jerry Higbie, Brett Hearn and Mike Ricci began their assaults to the front while "The Doctor" Danny Johnson had a quick-nick with second turn the boiler plate on his way to join the charging trio of fast moving hot rods. Hearn, the current point leader at Accord, was able to figure out the quick way to the front as he disposed of both Ricci and then Higbie to move into the runner-up role as he chased Roselli down.

The "Corporate Jet" was melting the ice in front of him as he ate up huge chunks of real estate from his 16th place start and received a big break when Michael Storms pulled up lame on lap-23. When racing resumed, Hearn stayed on the bottom and executed the slide job on Roselli in turn two as the battling duo touched bumpers rear to front but it was Hearn leading as they raced down the backstretch. Hearn would go on to capture his second win of the season and further cement his point lead with Roselli doing excellent work with his second place finish. "The Statesman" Jerry Higbie hustled his Big Block machine to a third place finish with Bobby Hentschel remaining in the hunt with a solid fourth place finish and Danny Johnson completing the top five. Mike Ricci, Danny Creeden, Danny Tyler, Richie Eurich and Robbie Green completed the top ten.

The Healey Brothers Group Spec Sportsman feature event had veteran campaigner Phil Recchio in command during the early laps of the feature event. "The Ironman" Mike DuBois, Whitey Slavin and "The Bushkill Bullet" Kyle Rohner were on the move but Slavin's poor luck continued when he was caught up in an incident that slowed the field on lap six. When racing resumed, Rohner pulled off the slide job to take over the lead but the event was just heating up as Rohner was unable to shake Recchio and the hard-charging Matt Hitchcock from his sight. Rohner stayed on the bottom as the laps clicked off and Recchio was trying to find the sweet spot on the second floor to get back to the point. The white flag flew and it appeared as though Rohner was in command. In turn three, Recchio found the speed he needed and Rohner left a bit of the door open and Recchio quickly filled it off of turn four to nip Rohner at the line in a very exciting feature finish. Post-race inspection found Recchio being disqualified and installing Rohner as the race winner with Hitchcock moving into second place and Lenn Atkins, Kyle Van Duser and rookie Phil Johnson completing the top five.

The winged warriors of the Lightning Sprint division were on hand last evening and the great field of cars began the feature with Connecticut's Rich Wood showing the hot hand early on. Fifteen year-old Massachusetts throttle-man Kyle Smith jumped ahead for a lap before Wood went topside and regained the lead. Wood remained in control until lap thirteen when defending track champion Ralph Utter figured out his extremely tight race car and found the inside line to his liking to execute a slide job on Wood as the pair touched bumpers before Utter scooted off to record the win in his first appearance of the season. Woods did a great job to finish in the runner-up role with one-time feature winner Doug Norrie overcoming an early race incident to finish third. JD Casazza and Peter Dance completed the top five while the teenager Smith recovered to come back and record a sixth place finish. Another talented teenager Christian Wright, Jerry Sehn, Will Casazza and Jim Roeney completed the top ten finishers.

Kenny Ferrier rocketed away from polesitter Joey Giachinta at the start of the Camper's Barn Sportsman feature run. Even though a couple of cautions slowed the field at times, it was Ferrier who controlled the point with his very quick Empire Forklift sponsored race car. Behind him as the race progressed, Vinny DeCicco and Kevin Ward were making their advances to the front. "Mr Excitement" Kevin Ward, who had already captured the prior two events at the speedway, was able to dispose of DeCicco and set his sights on the leader Ferrier. Ward was able to put his new Troyer race car anywhere he wanted on the race track and made the winning move past Ferrier with two laps remaining to score his third straight Accord Speedway win. Ferrier did a great job to finish second with DeCicco in third, Chris Stevens in fourth and hard charging Shane Jablonka completing the top five.

The Arkel Motors Pure Stock main event began with "The Rebel" Tim Brown seizing control at the start and leading the first two laps before Mike Deyo moved past him to lead the way. Deyo lead up until lap nine when Ray Tarantino took over the lead. " The Intimidator" Ray Tarantino looked to be in control of the found the top side to be the best side and he grabbed the lead to never look back on his way to victory. Smalley turned in a great drive to finish second with Ryan Johnson, Mike Deyo and Kyle Wright completing the top five.

The DC Landscaping Pro Stock event had low-buck campaigner John Rood setting the pace early on in the 20-lap main event. Rood led through the first five five laps before yielding to the Ford powered hot rod of John Roese. Roese, last season's runner-up in the season point's battle used a variety of move to work his way to the lead and once in front began to separate himself from the rest of the field. A late caution on lap-15 bunched up the pack and when racing resumed Roese had Pat Zimmer breathing down his tail-pipe. Roese was up to the task as he held off Zimmer to record his first win of the season as once again the Pro Stock division looks to be an all-out war for the division championship. The returning to action after a two year lay-off has not slowed down Al Christiana as he drove to a third place finish and John Rood and Tom Vasta filling in the top five finishers.


MUDPLUGS:

The track surface was once again in pristine racing condition as Promoter Gary Palmer continues to work his magic to the quarter mile of clay speedplant. The WRWD 107.3 Radio people were on hand for the event with radio personality "CJ in the Morning" engaging in a great interview session with speedway announcer Steve Pados. CJ explained the great tie-in with the station and the race track and the longevity of both the station and the speedway as both have been serving the Hudson Valley and Catskill Mountain regions for many years. CJ shed light on the country theme at the station and the many new and established artists who are showcased on the show within the country music industry. The trademark for the station is the "Continuous Country Favorites" seven days a week. General Sales Manager Wade Lott brought out the WRWD show vehicle and the brightly adorned truck was a hit with the racing fans.

Heat wins were captured by Dom Roselli, Jeremy Quick, Geoff Quackenbush and Bobby Hentschel in the Modifieds while Andy Bachetti captured the consolation run. Brad Szulewski, Vinny DeCicco and Mike Barrett captured the Sportsman heats while Phil Recchio and teenager Phil Johnson claimed Spec Sportsman qualifying events. Lightning Sprint heats were won by Kyle Smith, Rich Woods and Scott Goodrich. Pure Stock heats went to Tim Brown and Ryan Johnson while Pro Stock heats went to Al Christiana and Pat Zimmer.

New cars on hand on Friday evening were the 19J of Ralph Utter who turned in a great job to capture the main event and the beautiful new Henchcraft machine of Milford, New York's Don Harvey. Harvey was quick during the racing activties but lost a chain in a incident with Utter early on in the faeture event. Scott Goodrich returned to racing action with the same car he got upside down on the homestretch with two weeks ago showing the great craftsmanship in the construction of the race cars. Matt Norrie, who was involved in the same incident with Goodrich, was missing in action on Friday night as he still recovering from a sore back from the wild ride. Norrie is expected back the next time the Lightning Sprints take to the speedway. Chris Travis was back in action but encountered problems early on during the heat racing action. Chris Stevens made the move into the Sportsman division and enjoyed a great opening debut with a solid fourth place finish in the main event. Mike Skelly, normally a pavement performer at the Bethel Speedway, took a ride in the second Darrell Ford mount and scored a respectable 11th place finish in his Accord debut. Lenn Atkins, with a long history of Accord competition, continued to operate the injured Joe Judge machine and was third in the main event. Youngster Joey Bonetti got upside down in his heat event in the Lightning Sprint division but was uninjured in the wild ride in the fourth turn. Co-Announcer Joel Murns continues to race in a borrowed ride while waiting to put the finishing touches on his own ride and has done a great job in coaxing as much power as he can out of the ride with his sixth place finish. Mike Deyo saw a solid performance go up in a huge puff of smoke while dicing for the lead. Youngster Dillon Johnson tested the unforgiving Redi Rock International fencing in the Pure Stock main and lost the battle with the now famous Nova race car taking a severe hit to the front end area. Johnson was a bit shaken after the hard encounter. 14-year old Taylor May suffered much the same consequence when she abruptly turned right on the back stretch and connected with the many times tested boiler plate which refused to yield to the impact. May was ok after the incident.

The racing this season at Accord has been over the top with four tremendous shows already in the books. With super star talents Brett Hearn and Danny Johnson dominating the early season action thus far with two wins each, the scene become quite reminiscent of the 90's action at the Orange County Fair Speedway when the pair were regulars for a few seasons. Ann Wilber collected her second "Pick a Winner" prize of the season when she selected Hearn to be the winner of the main event. The winning selection was worth $50.00.

Knopp Claims First Late Model Victory of the Season at SSP on Saturday Night

 

Newberrytown, PA (May 7, 2011) – On Saturday night, May 7, Fawn Grove’s Chris Knopp won the 25-lap Late Model feature at the Susquehanna Speedway Park. Doug Bennett of Chambersburg claimed his second Street Stock feature event of the season. Thomasville’s Mike Zeigler Jr. claimed his second straight Xtreme Stock Car main event. Jeff Svendsen of Etters won the Road Warrior feature. In only his sixth career start in Legends Car, East Berlin’s Bob Stough picked up the victory. Sherry Kitner of York Haven won the special Women on Wheel Mini Van Feature.

 

Before the features began, each child in attendance received a flowering plant for their mothers, compliments of Fisher’s Farm Market in Strinestown.

 

In Late Model action, polesitter Chris Knopp took the early lead with Randy Christine stalking every lap. Lap after lap Christine waited for Knopp to make a mistake. However, just behind Christine was last week’s feature winner Justin Ehrhart waiting for the same opportunity. All drivers remained flawless to take the first three spots with Knopp claiming his first victory of the season. Tommy Slanker and Alex Updegraff rounded out the top five on what many termed “a very racy track.” Ehrhart, Knopp and Moser.

 

The 20-lap Street Stock feature saw the polesitter, Matt Wampler lead the first eight circuits before retiring from the event with mechanical failure. Runner-up Brett Pickel inherited the lead with the veteran drivers of Doug Bennett, Scott Thunberg, Randy Zechman and Jim Palm Jr. breathing down his next. Bennett was able to move by Pickel on lap 11. Thunberg quickly moved into the runner-up spot on the next lap. At the end, Bennett claimed his second feature win of the season over Thunberg by three car lengths. Randy Zechman finished third, followed by George Eash and Dan Zechman rounding out the top five. Wampler, Bennett and Randy Zechman were heat race victors.

 

The 20-lap Xtreme Stock Car feature Chad Stine grabbed the early lead. Stine led the first five laps until Zeigler took the lead away on the sixth circuit. In the middle stages of the race, Rodriguez tried to make the pass for the lead but was unable. On lap 12, Johnny Palm moved into the runner-up spot and then once again challenged Zeigler for the lead. At the end, Zeigler took the win by a car length over Palm. Matt Wampler crossed the line, but was relegated to the rear of the field for failing to report to post-race technical inspection. This gave J.r. Rodriguez third place, with Davey Nester and Rich Lomman rounding out the top five. Rodriguez and Stine were the heat race winners earlier in the night.

 

The 15-lap Road Warrior feature event began polesitter Robert Fryberger leading the first lap, the last lap and all laps in between to take the feature win. Jeff Svendsen finished second but protested the winner. Fryberger refused the protest and was disqualified. Also, the fifth place finisher, Brad Shenk failed to report to post race technical inspection and was relegated to the rear of the field. After the dust settled, Svendsen was awarded the win with Brian Lefebvre scored second, Jim Jacobs, Thomas Thompson and Rick Burnham rounded out the top five. Curt McDade and Robert Fryberger were heat race winners.

 

In a 15 lap feature event for the Legends Cars, polesitter Lucas Montgomery grabbed the early lead and continued to lead until lap 12 when he retired from the event with mechanical failure. After the yellow on lap 12, Bob Stough bolted past tim Henry and Chad Glatfelter to take the lead. Stough held off Glatfelter by inches at the end to claim his first career Legends Cars feature win. Glatfelter settled for second with Scott Gobrecht taking third place. Henry and Scott Houdeshell rounded out the top five. Henry and Montgomery each won their qualifying heat races.

 

Racing action returns to the SSP Outback Track on Friday night, May 13 at 7:30 p.m. featuring quarter midgets, karts, Adult Speedcars and lawnmower racing action.

 

Racing action returns to the Big Track at SSP on Saturday night, May 14 with the Late Models, Street Stocks, Xtreme Stock Cars, Road Warriors, and Legends Cars.

 

Saturday will also be the “Hometown Heroes” night featuring the towns of Dover and East Berlin. Before the races begin, the drivers from those hometowns will have the opportunity to display their cars and meet the fans at the front gate of the speedway. The drivers will also be interviewed during the night’s racing program. Also, all fans entering the speedway from that driver’s hometown being honored will be admitted FREE to the grandstands by showing proper photo identification and filling out an information card at the ticket booth.

AMRA TRACKS TO OPEN SOON/KC TO HOST ROAD WARRIORS MAY 7

Anxious for Summer-like/Racing Weather

MT. ALTO, WV-Schrader's Raceway near Chillicothe, Ohio will host a $1,200-to-win Road Warrior Modified invitational for AMRA Advance Services Modifieds this Saturday, May 7. Pit gates open at 3 p.m. And racing begins at 7:30. AMRA Late Models and Dan Reno Hobby Stocks will also be on the racing card.

The American Motor Racing Association (AMRA) is anxiously awaiting the time to get all sanctioned tracks in full swing for the 2011 racing season. Weather, however, has been the biggest factor in delaying the 2011 season for most AMRA tracks.

Twice now, the initial Road Warrior Challenge event for the dirt modifieds at Schrader's K-C Raceway has been postponed. Hopefully, the third time will be a charm as this Saturday, May 7 the Road Warriors come to town for a $1,200 to win, $125 start event on the K-C high banks. AMRA Late Models and Dan Reno Hobby Stocks will also be on the race card.

Opening last weekend was the I-77 Motorsports Park in Fairplain, WV where Harold Redman, Jr. claimed the AMRA Late Model event and Robert Garnes claimed the AMRA Modified event. At K-C Eddie Carrier, Jr. won the AMRA Late Model Classic, while the AMRA modifieds don't debut there until this Saturday. Both I-77 and K-C will be open this weekend!
Elkins Raceway, Elkins, WV is slated to open this Friday, May 6 with AMRA Modifieds on the race card.

Both Ohio Valley Speedway in Lubeck, WV and Skyline Speedway were to open this week but have already cancelled due to the extremely wet grounds. Ohio Valley will open Saturday, May 14 and Skyline will open Friday, May 13. Beckley Motorsports Park will host practice this Saturday, May 7 at noon with a Friday night May 13th start date.

O'Brion Oval Speedway at Duck, WV will practice 5-8 p.m. May 14 and open on May 28 when the points' season begins. Practice is scheduled for the revamped Thunder Mountain Speedway, formerly Hatfield and McCoy Speedway at Hanover, WV May 7 at 5:00 pm. The season opens May 14 at the newly sanctioned AMRA speed plant. The track phone is 304-664-5080.

Another new member track Natural Bridge Speedway in Natural Bridge, Virginia has already opened but will host its first AMRA sanctioned race Saturday, May 14 when the AMRA modifieds come to town for one of the best purses in the Tri-State Area.

There are ongoing negotiations with other tracks to join or return to the AMRA fold. Drivers wishing that their track join AMRA at no cost to the speedway are urged to let management know their desires. Visit www.amramodified.com  for all the AMRA news!

Sunday, May 8 -Checkered Flag Fan Club Day with Modifieds, Street Stocks, FWDs and INEX Legends



Matt Schlenker Takes Mike Moyer, Jr. Factory Stock Memorial at Mountain Smith, Zeiner, Hubler and Fehr all Visit Victory Lane



By: Gene Ostrowski

May 1, 2011



St. Johns, PA- Sunday was an emotional day for the family, friends and competitors of former Mountain Speedway Factory Stock champion, Mike Moyer, Jr. Moyer lost his life in March and many gathered together to host the 1st Annual Mike Moyer, Jr. Factory Stock Memorial at the speedway. In typical Factory Stock fashion, doors and fenders were rubbed and hot tempers filled the sir for some, but when it was all said and done, Matt Schlenker of Walnutport somehow pulled out the victory. Rusty Smith of Oxford, NY scored his second straight Sport Modified main event victory and Zane Zeiner of Bath notched a win in the Late Model feature. Scott Hubler of Coplay fended off the competition for his first INEX Legends victory of the season and Austin Fehr of Macungee drove his TQ Midget to victory at the speedway.

With heavy hearts and a lot of lap money on the line, several Factory Stock competitors started the 30-lap Mike Moyer, Jr. Memorial Factory Stock event. Brandon Oltra led the field to the drop of the green flag and led the first circuit over Jeff Searfoss, Kermit Jacoby, Paul Morgan, Jr. and Chris Parry.

Searfoss grabbed the lead on lap three and by lap seven Morgan had moved to second. Matt Schlenker cracked the top five and held the third spot.

Morgan pressured the leader and Schlenker laid back, taking it all in. With a little bump and run, it appeared that Morgan would be in command on lap 23, but that all changed when Searfoss drove into the back of the leader to push him up the hill, allowing Searfoss to retake the lead. His lead however was short-lived, as Schlenker took command on lap 24.

The yellow flag flew on lap 25 when Parry and Searfoss tangled in turn three. Searfoss was not able to continue.

Parry lined up in second for the restart, with Morgan, Joe Helburg and Jacoby in tow. With the green flag back out, the top three sliced and diced over the closing laps. Schlenker crossed the stripe as the victor and Morgan was forced to settle for second. Helburg was third, followed by Parry and Jacoby.

Heat race wins went to Chris parry and Matt Schlenker.

Barry Callavini started on the pole and was quickly overtaken by Todd Baer in the 40-lap Sport Modified main event. Baer continued to lead and by lap eight Rusty Smith moved into second. Callavini held third, followed by Dave Brigati and Zane Zeiner.

Smith hounded Baer and he finally surrendered the lead to Smith on lap 11. Two laps later Zeiner got by both Brigati and Callavini to take third.

With Smith still in command, Kevin Orlando and Todd Geist brought out the caution when they tangled in turn four on lap 29. The top five remained the same as it had on lap 11, but that was all about to change.

Green flag racing resumed and Zeiner overtook Baer for second. He then attempted to get by Smith over the closing laps with his last chance coming following a lap 39 yellow flag, which involved Will Schneider.

Smith was flawless during the final lap and went on to pick up his second Sport Modified victory in his second start this season.

Kevin Orlando and Barry Callavini were heat race winners.

Adam Cox led the Late Model field to the drop of the green flag in the 30-lap contest. Mike Sweeney overtook him before a single lap was scored, but he settled into the second position with Craig Lutz, Travis Fisher and Kyle Harvell in pursuit.

Lutz then grabbed second from Cox and on lap seven Zane Zeiner overtook Harvell, who was running third at the time. Zeiner then overtook Lutz for the runner up spot two laps later and the set his sights on the leader. Zeiner shot by Sweeney and into the lead on lap 14. Sweeney retain second, followed by Lutz, Harvell and Fisher.

Despite two quick cautions in the final 10 laps, Zeiner was untouchable and went on to pick up his first Late Model victory of the season over Lutz, Fisher, Sweeney and Harvell.

Heat race victories went to Mike Sweeney and Travis Fisher.

Jeff Kot started from the pole in the 25-lap TQ Midget feature, but it was Austin Fehr who came from his third place starting spot to make a three-wide move for the lead work in turn one. Fehr led the first lap, followed by Paul Lotier, Jr. Kot, Robin Johnston and Jon Gambuti.

Kot moved back into second and then Johnston overtook Lotier for third on lap four. He eventually overtook Kot for second before reeling in the leader. However, Fehr held on over the final laps to take the victory over Johnston, Kot, Matt Janisch and Gambuti.

Heat race wins went to Jeff Kot and Robin Johnston.

Stephen Hershey led the 21-car INEX Legends field to the drop of the green flag and was overtaken by Jason Sendlewski in the early going. The first of several yellows flew on lap three when Mike Alcaro got into Andrew Stotler in turn 2.

Green flag racing resumed and Scott Hubler moved from third and into the race lead. That changed when Kevin Nowak took his turn at the top spot on lap 10 and then Hubler retook command following a lap 15 restart. Nowak grabbed the lead once again on lap 18 but that went by the wayside when he and Alcaro bumped wheels, which resulted in a turn one spin by Nowak.

Hubler held the lead with six laps remaining over Brandon Michael, Raven Schrantz, Tony Hanbury and Darren Scherer. Prior to that, Chris Young also had methodically worked his way into the top three before encountering problems.

Hanbury worked his way into second in the closing laps but Hubler held him off to take the race win. Brandon DeBrakilmer finished third, followed by R. Schrantz and Matt Marring.

Heat race victories went to Brandon Michael, Stephen Hershey and Kevin Nowak.

HAMLIN SPEEDWAY NEWS

Hamlin, PA - Hamlin Speedway Showcases Seven Feature Opener With Ryan Smith Capturing A Double On S&S Speedways Night
By: Steve Pados, GA Motorsports Media

The twice cancelled Hamlin Speedway season opener was finally given the green light last evening by the powers above us and allowed Promoters Randy and Denise Smith to usher in an opening night of spectacular racing action at the Hamlin Speedway last evening when they welcomed in 138 talented racers from the surrounding five-state area to their premier short track facility located in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. The great opening night crowd was treated to an all-out display of high-flying action on the new higher banked 1/5 mile racing facility and the new banking allowed for the daredevil talent to use all of the speed lanes and present a great evening of racing entertainment. The racing action was completed at 10:45 and when was all said and done six happy winners found there way into victory circle and Kunketown driving ace "Flyin" Ryan Smith performed the magic twice. After the long delay in the crazy weather pattern, the Smith Family enters the 2011 racing season in their sixth season in control of the Hamlin facility they painstakingly resurrected in 2006 after the speedway abruptly closed in the middle of the 2005 racing season. The great racing action and the tremendous support from the racing community has earmarked just how popular the small car racing divisons have become in recent seasons and lends credence to the fact the Hamlin Speedway has become the place to be on Saturday nights to witness side by side racing the way it is meant to be. With the great opening night event the 2011 racing season has all indications for being another superlative season for the Smith Family.

The hot-lap sessions allowed the drivers their first opportunity to test the new racing surface and immediately the great field of cars on hand never skipped a beat as they dug their right rear wheels into the rich Pocono clay. The evening had special meaning for everyone on the speedway grounds as injured Hamlin driving star "Sparkman" Mark Berkenstock was in attendance for the opening night event. The sizzling heat race action set the tone for the seven feature events that would follow. The starting field of 11 Junior Slingshots began the seven feature assault with "Thrillin" Dylan Martin utilizing a heavy right foot to power away at the start of the feature to lead the twenty lap event all of the way in a wire to wire triumph. "The Little Tornado" Zack Weisenfluh provided a challenge once he broke into the clear but settled for the runner-up role. Jacob Dunn was third with Kyle Gruber, Thomas Strupp and "The Midget" Chris Kurtz completing the top six finishers.

Rookie feature events followed and the Wingless 600 rookies kicked off the action. Tim Howell took the lead at the opening bell and led through the first six laps of the event. Charging back from an early spin, Blairstown, New Jersey speedster Jacob Hendershot dove to the bottom of turn three to take over the point from Howell. Once in front Hendershot drove away from the 18-car starting field. Former Slingshot talent Steve Van Valkenburg was the runner-up in his first ride in the 600's and New York talent Danielle Dickinson was third. Justin Brewster was fourth and Riley Moczulski completed the top five finishers.

Slatington's Cheyenne Schaffer wasted no time in showing off her driving ability as she took the lead at the start of the event and easily distanced herself from rest of the field to win the rookie 270 Micro encounter. Another lady racer, Makenzie Harper race hard to finish in the runner-up role to make a 1-2 sweep for the ladies. Ron Pierson raced to third, Grady Johnston was fourth and "T-Jet" TJ Lilly completed the top five.

The regular Wingless 600 Micro main was a tornado warning from the initial start. "The Tornado" Jordan Tittle grabbed the lead at the start and the "Topton Tornado" Brett Arndt seized the runner-up position and began applying pressure to Tittle. From ninth starting spot and using the top shelf of the raceway to navigate his way forward, Ryan Smith was on a mission. The event quickly became a three way battle as Smith and Arndt battled for second place for many laps and not allowing Tittle to get gain any real estate advantage as they hustled around the speedway. Smith stayed topside and then swung low to move past Arndt in turn three and Smith then set sail for Tittle with Arndt glued right to their tailtanks. Smith made the pass for the lead on a couple of occasions but caution flags allowed him to practice the pass all over again. Finally on lap-18, Smith used relentless pressure to make the winning move and remained in front for good and Arndt was able to dispose of Tittle. The event has to go down in the annals of the history of the speedway as a must show on the highlight reels as Ryan Smith claimed the win with Brett Arndt, Jordan Tittle, Shelby Harper and Austin Ely making up the top five. Bobby Butler, Stan Tykarski, Brett Schoenly, Bill Clark and Kyle Lick completed the top ten with Schoenly doing great to recover from an early spin and Tykarski coming out of the B-main qualifier in an excellent drive to the front.

The Super Slinger feature had Charlie Shaver grabbing the lead from his pole start with Wes Hearn in tow. Dale Kober was knocking at the door and seized the runner-up spot from Hearn. The battle raged on into the middle laps as Kober threw everything he had at the hard-driving Shaver. Kober was able to make the winning pass on lap-16 and drove away to a opening night victory. Shaver did a great job to finish second with Hearn in third, Jimmy Johnston in fourth and Tom Arntz completing the top five.

Jordan Tittle gunned into the lead at the start of the 270 Micro main event. Fourth place starting Ryan Smith took the show to the second floor once he raced into the runner-up slot and began to figure out his way around the talented Tittle. Smith saw the opportunity on lap ten with a high low move off of turn two to take over the lead and drive away for his impressive seconfd triumph of the evening. Jordan Tittle hung tough in the runner-up role with Joe Smith driving one of the Warko Group mounts to third place. The "Cadillac Man" Kurt Bettler was fourth in a great drive from 12th and Tommy Kunsman Jr completed the top five. Hardluck competitor in 2010 Larry Hoagland got his season off to a great start with a sixth place finish and CJ Heinig, Trevor Dunn, Harlee Schaffer and Matt Mountz completed the top ten finishers.

The Slingshot main event saw Simon Egan explode a motor at the drop of the green flag. The restart had former track champion "The Factoryville Flyer" Bill Clark showing the hot hand as he took off with Mack Brink in pursuit. "The Dream" Billy Weaver, from fourth starting position, disposed of Brink and the "Rockaway Rocket" Danny Buccafusca was on the move from his eighth place start. Buccafusca, a 22-time feature event winner last season in the Junior Slingshot division racing, was making his first start as a regular and the eleven year old was up to task as he moved into third place with some off of the bottom groove expertise. Cody Kline moved into fourth place and the the field stayed close throughout the running of the event. Bill Clark would not be denied on this evening as he sped to the opening night win with Weaver in second, Buccafusca in third, Kline in fourth and Mack Brink with a strong perfromance completing the top five. The second five consisted of Charlie Shaver, Eddie Strada who was also making his initial start, Jess Benke, Shannon Smith and John Bockhorn.


POCO-NOTES:

The new season of racing that began last evening at Hamlin may just well be the sign of the times and the future of the sport as we view it. With high costs associated with most full-size racing divisions, those seeking to race and stay within their budget restraints, have found the superb alternative with the many divisions of competition offered at Hamlin and the Midweek Madness programs at the Accord Speedway. The stumbling economy and the high cost of fuel and personal luxuries may just be the ticket to keep the local fans home and revisit the local short-tracks to enjoy the professional racing formats and excellent programs the tracks entertain the fans with. The excitement generated from opening night show at Hamlinwill carry on throughout the season and will keep the fans coming back for more of the same great racing shows.

The extensive work Randy Smith and his staff did over the past few weeks provided the racers with a multi-lane race track to do their work in. The new clay surface and the additional banking held up well during the program and the wider channels made for some excellent side by side racing and the racers all agreed the track was in excellent shape and fast.

The draw of racing equipment to the Pocono facility has far reaching effects as the New England contingent continues to add great flavor to the exciting racing action. Additional race cars from the Empire State will be both beneficial to Hamlin and Accord during the season and the strong Pennsylvania and New Jersey connections remain the staples for the strong representation to the speedway. The fans had the opportunity to check out the many new paint schemes and graphics of the great field of cars on hand and the seasonally changing two new rookie divisions will act as the fram system for those who will move up to the regular divisions in the future. The speedway management and media correspondent Steve Pados thank all of the drivers for completing their driver profile forms in order for the teams and their sponsors to receive the necessary credentials for supporting racing throughout each evening of competition. With the many new faces arriving at the speedway, the information will all be in place for the next event.

Sportsman driving talent "The Twister" Tyler Boniface was on hand in one of the Dubois race cars and enjoyed the change of pace from his regular duties of driving one of the family owned race cars at Accord and OCFS, but failed to qualify for the main after being caught up in a scramble. Pennsylvania State Policeman Carl Mease took his first ride in a 600 Micro and scored a sixth place finish in his initial outing. Carl has raced for years on the drag racing circuit and wanted to give the circle track racing a go. Mease is the President of the Lehigh Valley Quarter Midget Club and with the racing starting next week in the Quarter Midget club the appearances of Mease may be limited during the season. The CARQUEST Gasoline Alley TV/Internet Show has always been a strong and avid supporter of Quarter Midget racing and donated five admissions for the test sessions for future drivers today at the Lehigh Valley track on the grounds of the Pocono International Raceway. The ARDC was well represented by Ryan Smith, Brett Arndt and Trevor Kobylarz for the evening. "The Sideways Slant" Grant Hilfiger had his sparkling new 600 race car on hand but encountered problems in the qualifying events. Hilfiger is a two time sportsman champion at the Penn Can Speedway and will be a regular at Hamlin for the 2011 season. Former ARDC competitor Timmy Townsend was back in action in the 600's but encountered some problems during the events. 600 rookie champion in 2010 Joe Kata had his new race car on hand but he too had his share of small problems throughout the evening.

Ziggy Thomashunis avoided injury when he was tagged from the rear and was sent into the Jersey barriers at the entrance of the pit gate. Thomashunis later returned in the Super Slinger feature at a reduced rate of speed but credit should be given to the crew for getting back on the racetrack. Tony Iudicello was involved in an incident in the 600 main that caused severe damage to new race car.

Heat winners were Jacob Dunn and Dylan Martin in the Juniors, hard driving Brett Schoenly, Shelby Harper, Ryan Smith and Tony Iudicello in the 600's, Cheyenne Schaffer in the rookie 270's, Bill Clark, Simon Egan, Mack Brink and Bill Weaver in the Slingshots, Larry Mekic and Ryan Smith in the 270's, Charlie Shaver and Wes hearn in the Super Slingers and Justin Brewster and Jeffrey Anderson in the rookie 600's.
Doug Snyder in the 600's and Mike McLaughlin in the Slingshots captured the B-Mains.

K-C Raceway Results The Classic 4/30/2011
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
By Scott Wolfe

CHILLICOTHE, OHIO-Oh what an opening night! Schrader's K-C Raceway and the O'Reilly All-Star Circuit of Champions made a slam dunk as a huge car count, beautiful weather, and a great crowd produced the perfect backdrop for a great night of high-speed racing. The Salt Rock Express, Eddie Carrier, Jr. of Salt Rock, WV blitzed the field in the 3rd Annual 40-lap, $4,000 to win "Classic". Danny Smith of Chillicothe, Ohio claimed the companion $3,000 Midwest All-Star feature, and perennial champion Jamie Adams claimed the Hobby Stock feature.
An elated Carrier returned to K-C victory lane where he has had a series of double-digit wins over the past eight years. Said Carrier, "I drew that eight (pill) and thought 'awe no, my job just got harder'. We've had some bad luck lately, so maybe this will turn it around, We will just keep a diggin' and working harder, and see what happens. It's good to be here in victory lane."

"I'd like to thank Grover Motorsports and Engines Inc. and my Dad. He and I were THE crew tonight and Dad worked really hard to help get us here."

The Late Model evening began when Donnie Moran came with thirteen-hundredths of Jackie Boggs' ten year old track record. Numerous other cars timed in the mid 13:00's as the cool afternoon locked down moisture early on the fast 3/8 mile speed plant.

Jeep VanWormer drew the one pill and sat alongside outside pole-sitter, and former World 100 winner Matt Miller. VanWormer blasted into the lead ahead of Miller and Zach Dohm, however, "Insane Duane" Chamberlain, the Indiana charger had his car 'every-which-way-but-loose'. Chamberlain's mount was loose and Jack Hewitt-fast and on-the-edge. Chamberlain sacked Dohm on lap six for second place as eighth place starter Carrier, Jr. quickly stormed up to fourth.

Josh McGuire, Grayson, KY brought out the yellow to bunch up the field for the Delaware-style restart on lap eight. Carrier immediately moved into third and challenged Chamberlain.
Mark Frazier, Jason Montgomery, and R.J. Conley battled hard for fifth place for numerous go-rounds, as VanWormer quickly worked his way into lapped traffic by the 16th circuit. Chamberlain and Carrier dueled ruthlessly during the span.

A lap 17 caution for a slowing Chad Smith brought out the second caution of the night. Just as fast as he streaked to the lead, Van Wormer exited the speedway with mechanical problems under the same caution, handing the lead to Chamberlain. Carrier won the drag race into turn number one to take the lead while Jason Montgomery leap-frogged two spots into fourth.
R.J. Conley, Mark Frazier, and Boom Briggs came together on lap 20, sending Frazier helplessly down the front chute backwards. The rest of the field continued in evasive fashion setting up the third restart. Chamberlain suffered a flat during caution and did not return.

Montgomery stalked Carrier for the remainder of the race as that duo marched away from the rest of the field. Both worked precariously through traffic as R.J. Conley began to reel in the pair, only to be stonewalled by a gaggle of back-markers with four laps to go.

At the 37 lap mark Montgomery drove to within three car lengths, but Carrier's Ford had just a little too much punch to claim the win over Montgomery. Montgomery had claimed the last All-Star Feature at K-C in the Halloween 50 last October. Terry Hicks was the hard-charger in a 21st to tenth place run.

Rounding out the top ten were Eddie Carrier, Jr., Jason Montgomery, R.J. Conley, Rod Conley, Matt Miley, Doug Dodd, Greg Oakes, Delmas Conley, Jeff Burdette, and Terry Hicks.
Danny Smith pulled off a double this weekend, first by taking Attica by storm, then completing the perfect weekend with the "Classic" All-Star win at K-C. The win was indeed popular for the Chillicothe driver, whose home city has adopted Smith as their favorite son.

"A little less than a year ago... June 18," said Smith, "I was laying in the hospital with a broken back, wondering what I was gonna do in the future and wondering if I would ever drive again. Fans from all over pitched in and helped me out with money and prayers. This race is for all of you. I appreciate it and dedicate this win to you."

Rob Chaney blasted into the lead and was in early command of the 30-lap sprint main. Kyle Sauder gave chase in second until fifth place starter Danny Smith engaged Sauder in a ten-lap side-by-side shootout. By lap six Chaney charged into heavy traffic. On the 15th circuit Danny Smith bagged Kyle Sauder for second place, when just one lap later Sheldon Haudenschild jumped the cushion and flipped hard off turn three. The second generation Haudenschild was uninjured; however, the flip inspired Dad Jac who buried the throttle the remainder of the event.

Smith had rocketed from 10th in quick order to challenge for the top three. "The Wild Child", however, took some time to get heat in the tires of the Jamie Miller #6, but when the tires kicked in Haud began a wild rim-ride to the front.

After a lap 17 restart for a spinning Todd Kane, it took Danny Smith just a lap to take command. Haudenschild and Greg Wilson came on strong in the waning stages of the race, but lapped traffic slowed their momentum and possibly a chance for the win.

Rounding out the top ten were Danny Smith, Rob Chaney, Jac Haudenshcild, Greg Wilson, Jared Ridge, Kyle Sauder, Ron Blair, Mike Long, Travis Philo, and Bryce Dickson. Smith was the hard charger of the race in a 10th to 1st run.

Nick Naber, Josh Davis, and Jesse Mc Creary all took hard flips in the preliminaries.

Laurelville, Ohio driver and multi-time track champion Jamie Adams claimed the win in the Hobby Stock Division. Adams led flag-to-flag with Matt Yates in tow early. Brandon Thompson took over second on lap seven and held off Tim Cutler, Jim Hildebrand, Bruce Gray, Jr. and Richard Trego. Gray was spotted two spots for passing on the start and Hildebrand was later disqualified. Great racing took place throughout the field complements of great driving from the division drivers. Rounding out the top ten were Adams, Brandon Thompson, Tim Cutler, Richard Trego, Bruce Gray, Jr., Butch Eblin, Mike Brust, Steve Karr, Deven Karr, and Jeff Sheets.

K-C comes back with the AMRA Road Warrior Modifieds and a regular show for AMRA Late Models and Hobby Stocks May 7.

Ehrhart Claims First Late Model Victory of the Season at SSP on Saturday Night

 

Newberrytown, PA (April 30, 2011) – On Saturday night, April 30, Dover’s Justin Ehrhart won the 25-lap Late Model feature at the Susquehanna Speedway Park. Dan Zechman of Hanover claimed his second straight Street Stock feature event of the season. Thomasville’s Mike Zeigler Jr. claimed the Xtreme Stock Car main event. Daryl Sipe of York Haven won the Mini Van feature and Kurt Welsh from Woodbine, Maryland won the 15-lap non-stop Classic Cars feature.

 

In Late Model action, polesitter Justin Ehrhart won his heat race and drew “no inversion” for the feature event. His luck continued as he jumped out to early lead over fellow heat race winners Jake Lettich and Mark Billet. Ehrhart led throughout the remainder of the race which consisted of nine cautions for mainly single car spins. Mark Billet continued to pursue but was never really able to find the spot to take the lead. At the end, Ehrhart won, followed by Mark Billet and then his brother, Carl Billet in third. Lettich finished fourth, followed by John Moser Jr. in fifth. Ehrhart completed his perfect night with a back flip from the roof of his racer in victory lane.

 

The 20-lap Street Stock feature had the front row of Jeff Haag and Marshall McMullen bring the field to the green flag with Haag leading the first circuit. Brett Pickel moved by Haag on the second lap and continued to lead until Dan Zechman took over on lap 10. Pickel continued to pursue in second until he spun on lap 13 in turn one. Pickel was able to return to a top ten finishing position at the end. When Pickel spun, Jimmy Slaseman inherited the runner-up spot and tried to mount a challenge for the win. At the finish, Zechman claimed his second straight victory in as many weeks. Slaseman settled for a strong second, followed by Jim Rost, Bruce McClane and George Eash. Scott Thunberg, Jim Palm Jr. and Dan Zechman were heat race victors.

 

The 20-lap Xtreme Stock Car feature Davey Nester grabbed the early lead. Polesitter Patrick McClane took the lead away from Nester on the second circuit. McClane led until lap 18 when Mike Zeigler Jr. passed after starting the event in ninth spot. Wampler moved into the runner-up spot on the next lap but was unable to track down Zeigler for the win and settled for second at the end. Zeigler picked up his first SSP victory of the year. Cameron Benyou had another third place finish (his third in three races). McClane settled back to fourth with J.R. Rodriguez finishing fifth at the end. Rodriguez, Zeigler and Wampler were all heat race winners earlier in the night.

 

The 15-lap Mini Van feature event began had Daryl Sipe lead the entire way to pick up the win over Donny Groft and John Kitner.

 

In a non-stop 15 lapper for the Classic Cars, found Kurt Welsh leading 14 out of 15 laps to take the victory. Second place went to Bill Brown Sr with Matt Wallace taking third. Wallace led briefly on lap 6 before falling back to third place later in the race. Joe Snodgrass and Jim Crocker finished fourth and fifth respectively. Wallace and Welsh each won their qualifying heat races.

 

Racing action returns to the SSP Outback Track on Friday night, May 6 at 7:30 p.m. featuring quarter midgets, karts, Adult Speedcar and lawnmower racing action.

 

Racing action returns to the Big Track at SSP on Saturday night, May 7 with the Late Models, Street Stocks, Xtreme Stock Cars, Road Warriors, Legends Cars and Women on Wheels Mini Vans. It is also Mothers Appreciation Night in which all mothers will receive a special gift from Fisher’s Farm Market in Strinestown.
