Jeff Greer & Mike Mauldin to Operate Columbus Speedway in 2012

 

Columbus, MS (12/15/2011) Jeff Greer and Mike Mauldin in conjunction with the Nickoles family will be running Columbus Speedway (Columbus, Mississippi) on a weekly basis for the 2012 season.

 

Less than 24 hours after Johnny Stokes announced that he would no longer be running and promoting the 1/3 mile, high-banked oval, Greer and Mauldin contacted the Nickoles family about operating the track for the 2012 season.

 

Mauldin, who has been the race director at Columbus Speedway over the past few years comments, "Columbus Speedway is a special place, and nobody wants to see it closed. Jeff Greer (who promotes North Alabama Speedway) and I contacted the Nickoles family this morning, and we've worked out a deal to work as partners to them for the 2012 season. We're proud to announce that we are bringing weekly racing back to the Bullring. We will work closely with Johnny Stokes to make sure that we don't have any scheduling issues with Magnolia Motor Speedway."

 

While the schedule is not yet laid out the track will likely open in late March or early April. The weekly program will consist of Super Late Models, NeSmith Weekly Late Models, Street Stocks, Mini Stocks, and a new cost-efficient Pure Stock division. More details will soon be available at the track's website, which is soon to be redesigned at www.ColumbusSpeedway.net .

 

For more information please contact Mike Mauldin at 662-213-3047 or Jeff Greer at 256-349-4328.

Johnny Stokes Steps Down as Columbus Speedway Promoter

Columbus, Mississippi (12/14/11) - After over ten years of promoting and running the "Baddest Bullring in the South," Columbus Speedway (Columbus, Mississippi) Johnny Stokes has stepped down from the position for the 2012 season.

The Nichols family, who owns the facility and the racetrack, have retained ownership of the facility for the 2012 season. In regards to the move Stokes notes, "I've had a great time running the track over the past ten or so years. The Nichols family have been great to work with, and I know they will make every effort to keep the track in operation for 2012 and beyond. They love racing as much as I do, so it's safe to say the track is in good hands."

While at this time a schedule of events is not known for Columbus Speedway, the Nichols family has voiced an intent to run a handful of races at the famous, 1/3 mile oval in 2012.

Stokes will continue to run Magnolia Motor Speedway, also in Columbus, Mississippi, for the 2012 season. A schedule of events is soon to be released, which will again include the always popular Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series on July 5th-7th. The facilities schedule for 2012 will soon be posted at www.MagnoliaDirt.com .

2011 Possum Town Grand Prix Canceled

 

Columbus, Mississippi (11/08/11) – The 2011 edition of the Possum Town Grand Prix, which was slated to be held at Columbus Speedway (Columbus, Mississippi) on November 24th-26th has been canceled. Several factors led to the cancellation of the event, which has been a Thanksgiving weekend staple over the past several years. Over the past few years, however, a few different factors have led to the race becoming more of a liability than a logistically, feasible event. A much longer race season now sees competitors compete right up until the event, and in years past most competitors and fans from throughout the area would have at least a month away from racing by the time the event got underway. This has led to a decline in attendance in the stands and pits over the past three years. In addition, an early season rainout of a NeSmith Late Model Series this season, led to the rescheduling of it on Sunday, November 20th, and given this along with the other factors it didn't make sense to run back-to-back late season events.

 

As a result, the final event of the 2011 season for the Columbus Racing Alliance will be the $2,000-to-win, NeSmith Late Model Series event on Sunday, November 20th at Magnolia Motor Speedway (Columbus, Mississippi). Also, on the card will be Super Late Models, Street Stocks, and Mini Stocks. Sunday, November 20th the pit gate opens at 12pm with the grandstand gates opening at 1pm. The driver's meeting is slated for 2:00pm with racing action to follow. Grandstand Admission is $15.00 for adults with kids 10 and under admitted FREE. Pit Admission is $30.00. Come Tailgate Track Side in any unreserved spot for an additional $10.00. For more information on the event, please call Johnny Stokes 662-574-2572 or the Track at 662-240-3478 or visit www.MagnoliaDirt.com

 

In addition, the special race-ready, Street Stock that is being raffled to benefit Ross Tingle will be given away on Sunday, November 20th at Magnolia Motor Speedway, and if the winner is present he or she will have the option to start at the back of the Street Stock feature.

 

Thanks for everyone's continued support of Columbus Speedway and Magnolia Motor Speedway!

5th Annual Gumbo Nationals This Weekend at Greenville Speedway

 

Greenville, Mississippi (11/01/11) – In just two days it will be time to set the gumbo on fire as the 5th Annual Gumbo Nationals will come to life at Greenville Speedway (Greenville, Mississippi) on November 3rd-5th.

 

Over the past several years Wesley Washington and James Clolinger have worked diligently to transform Greenville Speedway into a showplace for racing in the area. Their hard work has resulted in some of the best racing in the region during the past few years. In an effort to further elevate the status of the facility and the Gumbo Nationals the staff is excited to announce that this year's edition of the event will feature the richest Super Late Model payout ever at the 1/4 mile oval, with a total purse boasting over $33,000 for the Super Late Model division alone with the PRO Dirt Car Series sanctioning the event.

 

On Thursday, November 3rd an Open Practice Session will be held. Friday, November 4th will see group qualifying as well as heat race action contested. Saturday night, November 5th will be headlined by a pair of b-main events, a last chance qualifier, and the 70 lap finale. Following the twin b-mains, there will be a last chance qualifier where the first six cars, who didn't transfer from each b-main to the feature will go to war in a 12 lap event, where the top two cars will move on to the feature, while the other ten finishers receive some extra cash.

 

This new format is devised to give the racers more chances to get into the show, a chance for more drivers to take home money, and to give the fans more bang for their buck.

 

With the revised purse many of the top competitors from the southeast and even some national drivers are setting their sights on the event. Drivers already indicating their intent to try and tame the gumbo this weekend include Bub McCool, Johnny Stokes, Ray Moore, Rodney Wing, Chad Thrash, Josh Putnam, Mike Palasini Jr., Ross Camponovo, Jamie Elam, Jack Sullivan, Dane Dacus, Jon Mitchell, Gary Christian, Timothy Culp, Greg Fore, Scott Creel, Rick Rickman, Brian Rickman, Eric Cooley, Bo Gordon, Doug Showah, Kyle Beard, and more!

Heading into this weekend's event Eric Cooley continues to lead the PRO Dirt Car Series standings over Brian Rickman, Rick Rickman, Johnny Stokes, and Tony Shelton.

 

Joining the Super Late Models on the program will be the NeSmith Late Model Dirt Series, who will contest their own $3,000-to-win/$300 to start event with time trials and heat race action on Friday night, while b-mains and their finale will be held on Saturday night.

 

Also on the program for the weekend will be the Street Stocks battling for $1,000-to-win and the Kajun Mini Stocks competing for $1,000-to-win.

The 5th Annual Gumbo Nationals is sponsored by Veteran's Pension Planners of America, MMC, Wilkerson Diesel & Tire, Barrett's Custom Spraying, and Ed's Auto.

Mississippi $10,000 Triple Crown Challenge Continues at Whynot

 

Memphis, Tennessee (10/18/11) – The Mississippi Triple Crown Challenge continues this weekend with the 17th Annual Coors Light Fall Classic at Whynot Motorsports Park (Meridian, Mississippi) as Billy Moyer chases the $10,000 bonus, while more than 50 other drivers still remain in the hunt for the $3,000 bonus

 

Promoters with Mississippi's three crown jewel events, The Magnolia State 100, the Coors Light Fall Classic 100, and the Southern Belle Cotton Pickin' 100 joined together in 2011 to form the Mississippi Triple Crown Challenge. The program offers a $10,000 bonus to any driver, who can win all three events. If a driver can win only two of the events, then they will receive a $3,000 bonus. The only restriction is that drivers must take part in all three events to be eligible for either bonus.

 

Billy Moyer claimed the first event in the series, the 22nd Annual Magnolia State 100 at Columbus Speedway (Columbus, Mississippi) in late September, and will continue his pursuit of the $10,000 bonus this weekend in the 17th Annual Coors Light Fall Classic at Whynot Motorsports Park. If another driver, who was at the Columbus Speedway event, can win this weekend they will still be in the running for a $3,000 bonus if they can also win the 8th Annual Cotton Pickin' 100 at Magnolia Motor Speedway on October 27th-29th.

 

This weekend, the second event in the series will be held as the 17th Annual Coors Light Fall Classic at Whynot Motorsports Park (Meridian, Mississippi) comes to life on October 20th-22nd, 2011. Drivers will tackle "Mississippi's Action Track" in pursuit of a $15,000-to-win/$1,000-to-start purse. For more information, please contact Jannie Thrash at 601-486-3410, Charles Thrash at 601-917-2335, Rodney Wing at 601-527-0084 or visit www.WhynotMotorsportsPark.com .

 

If the $10,000 bonus or the $3,000 bonus is to be claimed it will be accomplished on October 27th-29th, 2011 at "The South's Premier Dirt Track" Magnolia Motor Speedway (Columbus, Mississippi) during the 8th Annual Cotton Pickin' 100.

Legends Dirt Modifieds to Race at Georgia’s Dixie Speedway


October 13, 2011 – The Legends Dirt Modifieds will be making their first trip to Dixie Speedway on Saturday, October 22 to race on the famous Georgia red clay oval just outside of Atlanta.

The October 22 race will be the second time that the Legends Dirt Modifieds have ventured outside of North Carolina during their inaugural season. They raced at Fork Mountain Raceway in Bassett, Virginia last month. With the series points championship already being wrapped up at their home track of East Lincoln Speedway in Stanley, NC, this special race at Dixie Speedway will be a non-points event.

“We’re excited to see the LMODs run at Dixie Speedway”, said US Legend Cars General Manager GE Chapman. “They put on a great show last month in Virginia, and we expect to see much of the same great racing at Dixie.”

Legend Cars & Bandoleros have a strong following in the Atlanta area, and US Legend Cars is hoping to make a similar splash with the new Ray Evernham-designed Legends Dirt Modified in the Georgia market. According to Chapman, “there is a strong asphalt racing program in Atlanta for our other racecars, and we really think that there are many dirt racing fans & drivers in Georgia that would enjoy having this new car take off. The car is fun to drive, easy to maintain & affordable to race. These aspects of the LMOD are appealing to a lot of people.”

For more information on the October 22 race, please visit www.DixieSpeedway.com . To learn more about the Legends Dirt Modified, please visit www.LegendsModified.com .

Where to Stay: Camping is FREE! In a change from last year, all camping is first come, first serve and free of charge. Unfortunately, there are no electric/water hookups available for camping at Lernerville Speedway.

 

The Days Inn in Butler, PA is the top recommendation for travelers planning to stay at a hotel. The Days Inn in Butler is located 10 miles from the speedway on Route 8 just south of Butler. The Days Inn has an indoor pool, on-site restaurant & lounge and is in close proximity to a handful of restaurants including McDonalds, Pizza Hut and Burger King. Other nearby towns with hotels include (arranged in order of proximity) Butler, Kittanning, New Kensington, Cranberry Twp. and Harmar Twp. Of those locations, while a little but further away, The Days Inn in Harmar Twp. probably provides the second best option to Butler as it is a short, easy trip down Routes 356 & 28 and the area is loaded with restaurants, hotels and retail options.

 

How to get involved: The Inaugural DIRTcar Round Up Steel City Stampede is more than a three-day show; it’s also a total fan experience. The Round Up Tent will be open each night after the on track action has come to a close with music to help you unwind.

 

In Closing: Don’t miss out on the opportunity to take part in this exciting three-day show at Lernerville Speedway! The DIRTcar Round Up Steel City Stampede will be the last chance in 2011 to see our Fab Four Racing divisions, plus four other divisions and another 100-lap Enduro on Saturday Night.

17th Annual Coors Light Fall Classic Early Entry Deadline This Sunday

 

Meridian, Mississippi (10/10/11) - With less than three weeks remain until the 17th Annual Coors Light Fall Classic at Whynot Motorsports Park in Meridian, Mississippi gets underway on Thursday-Saturday, October 20th-22nd, 2011, Super Late Model competitors should note that they have until this Sunday, October 16th to file an early entry for just $50. After this date, the entry fee will be $150. Competitors may file an early entry by simply calling Ben Shelton at 901-335-3037 or Jannie Thrash at 601-486-3410. All Super Late Model non-qualifiers will receive $50.

 

On the heels of the most successful Coors Light Fall Classic ever in 2010, the event is back for more in 2011. For the seventeenth straight year, many of the best competitors in the nation and the region will converge on the southeast Mississippi facility to contend for their respective championships. The 1/3 mile, clay oval is known for its consistently racy surface, which is prepared and maintained by racing veteran, Rodney Wing.

 

The 2011 edition of the event will be headlined by a $15,000 to win/$1,000 to start, 100 lap Super Late Model event, which boasts a total Super Late Model purse in excess of $55,000. In 2010 Brian Birkhofer topped a field of 60 Super Late Model competitors, representing 17 states, to claim his second event title, and will likely be back to defend his title in the 100 lap event against a talented field of competitors, which will likely include other former event champions including Wendell Wallace, Jimbo McDuffie, Chris Wall, David Breazeale, and Ronny Lee Hollingsworth.

 

Calls are already flooding in from drivers and fans for this year’s event, which could very well top last year's event to be the biggest in the history of the Coors Light Fall Classic.

 

Crate Late Models will also be co-headline the event as they wage war for $2,000 to win/$125 to start during the course of the event. The Open Wheel Modified division is being sponsored by Etheridge Race Products., and will boast a $2,000 to win/$125 to start payout. The Street Stock division will be headlined by a $1,000 to win/$75 to start program. On Friday night the Pure Stock division will contest a complete show for $250-to-win, while the Mini Stocks will battle in a complete $500-to-win show on Saturday night, and the Stingers will race in a complete $250-to-win show on Saturday night as well..

 

The entry fee for Crate Late Models and the Open Wheel Modifieds is $50 with all non-qualifiers receiving $50.

 

Open practice begins Thursday night, October 20th at 7:00 PM for all divisions. Friday night is preliminaries night, as the 17th Annual Coors Light Fall Classic Super Late Models qualify and run heat races as they attempt to make the feature field. Crate Late Models will also qualify and run heat races. Open Wheel Modifieds and Street Stocks will run their heats while the Pure Stock division will contest a complete program

CITY OF LAWRENCEBURG NATIONALS TO LEVI JONES
 
     Lawrenceburg, IN - October 1, 2011.  Levi Jones of Olney, IL, picked
up a $10,000 paycheck Saturday night in winning the USAC and MSCS
co-sanctioned City of Lawrenceburg Nationals at Lawrenceburg
Speedway.  The United States Auto Club points leader inherited the
lead on lap 23 and led the rest of the 30 lap event.  Jones was
driving the Tony Stewart Racing GM Performance Parts Eagle/Chevy.
Hunter Schuerenberg began challenging Jones over those final 8 laps.
However it was Chris Windom who moved up from mid pack to take second
in the dash to the finish line.  Casey Riggs finished fourth and
veteran Tracy Hines was fifth.
     In the post race interview Levi Jones summed up the efforts on the
track.  “I did not have the fastest car but we won.  Hendrick was
really fast.”  A huge pileup in turn three of lap 23 changed the
complexion of the event.  Jonathan Hendrick had been leading and  was
stretching the lead despite the emergence of lapped traffic.
Suddenly cars came together.  The resulting action nearly blocked the
track.  The cars of Coleman Gulick and Critter Malone were hooked
together at the center of the track.  Robert Ballou’s sprint car was
up at the wall.  Another car or two took up the lower portion of the
track.  Justin Grant’s car was also involved.  Hendrick who was just
behind connected and flipped.  He was just laps away from his first
MSCS feature win and it would have been a big one!
     Positions six through ten went to Jon Stanbrough, Jerry Coons Jr.,
Ted Hines, Bobby East, and Bryan Clauson.  Ted Hines who started 21st
in the 24 car field earned the Keizer Aluminum Wheels Hard Charger of
the Race Award which is presented by MSCS.  East drove up into the
top ten after taking the USAC provisional to start the event.
Clauson was on the move too.  He was one of 7 drivers that gained 6
or more spots before the checkers waved.
     The four heat  races were won by Brady Short, Chris Windom, Matt
Westfall, and Blake Fitzpatrick.  Using the USAC format for the
program, the top four from each heat and the top six from the Semi
earned their way into the feature.  Fast qualifier Brady Bacon won
the Semi Feature but the car overheated in the feature and he failed
to finish.  Thirty eight cars timed in for the event.  Jac
Haudenschild picked up the Wilwood Tuff Brakes Award in finishing
eleventh for the feature in the Dynamics 69.
     The preliminary events were also interrupted by red flags.  Daron
Clayton flipped in the first heat and the car was done for the night.
Mike Miller flipped in the third heat but he did make it back out for
the Semi.   Shawn Westerfeld was battling for a transfer spot  when
he flipped during the Semi.
 
     The Hoosier Tire Midwest Sprint Car Series will be competing Saturday
night October 8th at Tri-State Speedway.  This is the last event
scheduled for MSCS this season.  The MSCS Harvest Cup that night will
have an earlier starting time than usual.  The heat races will start
at 7 P.M. with hot laps beginning at 6 P.M.  The feature will pay
$4,000 to win.  It will be the final night of racing at the track
this season.  Sprint car drivers will have one last opportunity to
gain in valuable series points.  The UMP Modifieds will also be
racing!

Billy Moyer Claims Eighth Magnolia State 100 Title

 

Columbus, Mississippi (09/24/11) - On Saturday night the finale for the 22nd Annual Premier Ford Magnolia State 100 was held at Columbus Speedway (Columbus, Mississippi). Over 150 cars entered for the weekend, and the best of the best in each division went to battle on Saturday night in their feature events.

 

In the Super Late Model division, Billy Moyer survived an attrition-filled feature to claim his unprecedented eighth Magnolia State 100 triumph. The win did not come easy though as he received several challenges throughout the feature as well as some close calls in lap traffic. At the checkered flag he would claim the $20,011 win by six car lengths over Bub McCool, Eric Cooley (started 15th), Brian Rickman (started 21st), and Morgan Bagley (started 25th).

 

In the Crate Late Model division a great race was contested as Jeremy Shaw from Millport, Alabama battled past early leader Chris Ragan on lap nine to take the lead and had to fight off a late race, three-wide battle for the lead with Mike Boland and Justin McRee to claim the $2,500 win. Boland, McRee, Dougie King, and Cliff Williams rounded out the top five at the checkered flag.

 

The Street Stock feature saw outside front row starter, Wesley Greene pace the feature for the first half of the feature before sixth starting Trey Bright took the lead in the caution-filled event. Bright would go on to claim the $1,000 win over Marvin Beard, Adam Cheeks, Andrew Earnes, and Doug Dodd.

 

In the Open Wheel Modified feature Billy Collett and Ryan Allday brought the field to the green flag with Collett claiming the lead as the race began. It would be a lead that he would never relinquish as he raced his way to the $2,000 win, which came over Randy King, Jason Markewitz, Noah Daspit, and Ryan Allday.

Carter takes USST win at Lucas Oil Raceway‏ 

CLERMONT, Ind. (Sept. 24) – When you’re on a roll you’re on a roll.

Allen Carter kept his United States Super Truck presented by Safety Kleen national series unbeaten streak intact Saturday evening at Lucas Oil Raceway of Indianapolis.

Carter led the entire 44-lap distance for his third victory in three series tries in 2011.

The race, in front of a good-sized crowd on UAW Night at LOR, was cut to 44 laps as rain started to fall on the racing surface. The finish at the top was hardly in doubt though as Carter had built an 11-second advantage.

Fifteen-year old Camden Murphy, Itasca, Ill., kept the series championship in his sights. He started outside of Carter at the green flag, had a horrid first few laps, but recovered to pass Joey Shuryan on Lap 29 and take second at the checkers.

Shuryan, Dearborn, Mich., was followed by Marshall, Mich.’s David Stone and Eric Caudell, Piedmont, Okla. Only the top four finished on the lead lap.

The race was halted just as quickly as the green flag flew. Caudell spun entering Turn Four and collected Blair on the opening circuit.

Blair lost oil and had to make repairs during the red flag. He worked back to seventh by the end.

The second start was the charm as it went caution free after that.

Carter also set the bar in qualifying, turning a lap in 23.717 and over 104 miles per hour.

The event was run in conjunction with the Advance Racing Association season closer. John Wickes, Ypsilanti, Mich., was the highest finishing MC2 Home Inspections Pro Truck taking sixth ahead of Blair. Wickes clinched the 2011 ARA championship.

The USST finishes its national series season Oct. 29 at Nashville, Tenn.

Damon Breedlove led all 30 laps for his first career ARA PXP Racewear Modified feature, beating Scotty Tomasik, Blair, Rodney Cropper an d Jim Begley.

Waukesha, Wis.’s Rick Tackman, Jr. paced all 20 laps of the Cline Grain Late Model main. Tim Salyers used his runner up finish to clinch the season title. Michael Cline, Glenn Andrew and Mark Sweet rounded out the Top Five.

The event concludes the 2011 ARA season. Announcements on the 2012 campaign are expected soon. Keep in touch by logging on to advanceracingassociation.com.

ARA action is brought to the track by Cline Grain, PXP Racewear, MC2 Home Inspections, Gould Body and Paint, Racing Electronics, Hoosier Tire, Five Star Racecar Bodies, ARP Bodies, Savings E-Club, AED Metals, Clermont Liquors, Do Drywall Right, National Road Insurance and Terry Lee Honda.

22nd Annual Magnolia State 100 This Weekend

 

Columbus, Mississippi (9/20/11) - The waiting is almost over as less than 48 hours remain until the start of the 22nd Annual Magnolia State 100 at Columbus Speedway in Columbus, Mississippi on Thursday-Saturday, September 22nd-24th.

 

The top Super Late Model drivers in the region as well as many of the best in the nation will once again fill the pits at "The Baddest Bullring in the South" to do wage an all-out war for a record purse including a $20,011 winner's share of over $70,000 in Super Late Model purse money on the line in the 100-lap affair. Last year's event drew almost 200 race teams including over 60 Super Late Models to Columbus Speedway plus another huge crowd to the popular event.

 

The event is one of the biggest Short Track Racing events in America and easily the biggest race in Mississippi based on number of participants and attendance.

 

The names that adorn the Magnolia State 100 prestigious champion’s list illustrates that adding a Magnolia State 100 win to a driver's resume is no easy task. Two-time and defending Champion, Mike Marlar from Winfield, Tennessee headlines a list of winners in Mississippi’s biggest short track event that includes Shane Clanton, Chris Wall, Don O’Neal, Anthony Rushing, Wendell Wallace, Ronnie Johnson, Terry English, Rex Richey, Johnny Virden, and of course, the events' 7-time champion "Mr. Smooth" Billy Moyer.

 

At least five former champions are expected to be in action to try and claim another title including two-time, and defending champion, Mike Marlar from Winfield, Tennessee as well as seven-time champion, Billy Moyer from Batesville, Arkansas, plus Chris Wall (Louisiana), Wendell Wallace (Arkansas), and Shane Clanton (Georgia).

 

Joining the former event champions will be a strong field of national, regional, and local talent representing at least nine states. Drivers expected to be in action include Bub McCool, Ronny Lee Hollingsworth, Ray Moore, Clint Smith, Jack Sullivan, David Breazeale, Billy Moyer Jr., Klint Byars, Morgan Bagley, Rick Rickman, Dane Dacus, Jason Cliburn, Tony Knowles, Ty Dillon, Eric Cooley, Rodney Wing, Timothy Culp, Kyle Beard, Matt Johnson, Brian Rickman, Scott Creel, Brooks Strength, Chad Thrash, Jamie Elam, and many more.

 

The highly entertaining format for the event is in place for the fans. Drivers will compete in Pepsi Pole Qualifying on Friday night that is always a spectacle at "The Bullring" as it is man versus machine in a battle to see which driver can tame Johnny Stokes' high banks.

 

Saturday night’s line up features 140 laps of Super Late Model racing action. The event employs a very unique format as those competitors who did not make the $20,011-to-win, main event through heat races on Friday night get not one, but two chances to get make the 26-car starting field. Drivers unable to transfer through one of the three frantic 10-lap B-mains will have a final opportunity to make the big show in the 10-lap Last Chance Dash. And then, finally, the big one - the $20,011 to win/$1,000 to start, 100-lap battle royal at "The Bullring" - the 22nd running of the Magnolia State 100.

 

Part of what makes the Magnolia State Championships truly special is the amount of talented competitors, who take part in the Crate Late Model, Street Stock, and Open Wheel Modified portions of the event, which each boast their own impressive purses. A spectacular field of Street Stocks will compete for $1,000-to-win/$100-to-start, Magnolia State Street Stock Championship and Crates Late Models will compete for a record $2,500-to-win/$150-to-start prize for the Magnolia State Crate Late Model Championship that should draw a huge field of cars. In addition, for 2011 the Open Wheel Modified division has been added back to the program and will battle in a $2,000-to-win/$125-to-start event.

 

Open practice begins Thursday night, September 22nd at 7:00 PM for all divisions. Friday night is Pepsi Pole Night, as the Magnolia State 100 Super Late Models qualify and run heat races as they attempt to make the feature field. Local division heats are also run on Friday night. Saturday night is "the big show", the Magnolia State 100, along with B-Mains and local division Magnolia State Championships. Full event information is listed below.

Gumbo Nationals New Payout & Exciting Format Announced

 

Greenville, Mississippi (09/13/11) – With a new look, a new format, and a new payout anticipation is building for the 5th Annual Gumbo Nationals, which will be held November 3rd-5th at Greenville Speedway (Greenville, Mississippi).

 

Over the past several years Wesley Washington and James Clolinger have worked diligently to transform Greenville Speedway into a showplace for racing in the area. Their hard work has resulted in some of the best racing in the region during the past few years. In an effort to further elevate the status of the facility and the Gumbo Nationals the staff is excited to announce that this year's edition of the event will feature the richest Super Late Model payout ever at the 1/4 mile oval, with a total purse boasting over $33,000 for the Super Late Model division alone with the PRO Dirt Car Series sanctioning the event.

 

On Thursday, November 3rd an Open Practice Session will be held. Friday, November 4th will see group qualifying as well as heat race action contested. Saturday night, November 5th will be headlined by a pair of b-main events, a last chance qualifier, and the 70 lap finale. Following the twin b-mains, there will be a last chance qualifier where the first six cars, who didn't transfer from the b-mains to the feature will go to war in a 12 lap event, where the top two cars will move on to the feature, while the other ten finishers receive some extra cash.

 

This new format is devised to give the racers more chances to get into the show, a chance for more drivers to take home money, and to give the fans more bang for their buck.

 

With the revised purse many of the top competitors from the southeast and even some national drivers are setting their sights on the event. Drivers already indicating their intent to try and tame that weekend include Bub McCool, Chris Wall, Jack Sullivan, David Breazeale, Ray Moore, Rodney Wing, Chad Thrash, Klint Byars, Mike Palasini Jr., Ross Camponovo, Jamie Elam, Dane Dacus, Morgan Bagley, Jon Mitchell, Gary Christian, Greg Fore, Rick Rickman, Brian Rickman, Eric Cooley, Kyle Beard, and more!

ROSSBURG, Ohio – The tide of the dirt kept changing. Jimmy Owens rode the tide and practically dominated the prestigious World 100 Saturday evening at Eldora Speedway.

The Newport, Tenn. driver took the lead on Lap 13, sailed the next 69 circuits and held off late charges from Eddie Carrier, Jr., Don O’Neal and Darrell Lanigan to take his second set of famed globe trophies home. He also picked up $44,000 for dirt Late Model racing’s most prestigious win.

“I was too aggressive too early,” Owens said in victory lane. “It was nice to have a straightaway lead at times and hold on at the end.”

Carrier, Salt Rock, W.V., slithered past Martinsville’s O’Neal and Union, Ky.’s Lanigan on the last lap of the century grind. That topped an amazing inside-outside, high-speed swapping of positions in the closing laps. That held O’Neal from sweeping Eldora’s annual racing jewels and kept Indiana drivers winless in the World 100.

“I would’ve liked to win this thing, but man, what a race,” O’Neal said. “Darrell and I were swapping some dirty slide jobs with each other. That probably cost us both the race.”

O’Neal won the $100,000 Dream in June.

“It got pretty wild at the end,” Carrier said. “I saw (Lanigan and O’Neal) and thought ‘here’s my shot to get around them’.”

The Top Four finished less than a second apart.

“I didn’t start driving hard until the last 20 laps,” O’Neal said. “We couldn’t catch him. Congratulations to Jimmy.”

Owens first World 100 triumph since 2007 broke a string of 10 consecutive different winners. The race was slowed seven times by caution flags.

O’Neal was one of 17 drivers from Indiana or Illinois in the 112-car field. He turned in second quick time Friday, finished as runner up in the second heat and started eighth in the World 100 Saturday.

The only other Indiana drivers to make the 30-car field were Greenfield’s Scott James (20th place) and  Bloomington’s Kent Robinson (30th).

Illini pilots to make the show were rookie Mike Spatola (12th), Dennis Erb, Jr. (14th), 18-year old rookie Brandon Sheppard (16th) and veteran Shannon Babb (28th).

 

Following are the results from the World 100 Saturday evening at Eldora Speedway, Rossburg, Ohio.

World 100 – 1. Jimmy Owens, Newport, Tenn. 2. Eddie Carrier, Jr., Salt Rock, W.V. 3. Don O’Neal, Martinsville 4. Darrell Lanigan, Union, Ky. 5. John Blankenship, Williamson, W.V. 6. Chris Madden, Gray Court, S.C. 7. Scott Bloomquist, Mooresburg, Tenn. 8. Jeep VanWormer, Pinconning, Mich. 9. Austin Dillon, Welcome, N.C. 10. Mike Marlar, Winfield, Tenn. 11. Jimmy Mars, Menonomie, Wis. 12. Mike Spatola, Manhattan, Ill. 13. R.J. Conley, Wheelersburg, Ohio 14. Dennis Erb, Jr., Carpentersville, Ill. 15. Dustin Neat, Dunnville, Ky. 16. Brandon Sheppard, New Berlin, Ill. 17. Jared Landers, Batesville, Ark. 18. Dale McDowell, Chickamauqua, Ga. 19. Josh Richards, Shinnston, W.V. 20. Scott James, Greenfield 21. Billy Moyer, Batesville, Ark. 22. Jon Henry, Ada, Ohio 23. Chris Ferguson 24. Tim McCreadie, Watertown, N.Y. 25. Gregg Satterlee, Rochester Mills, Pa. 26. Earl Pearson, Jr., Jacksonville, Fla. 27. Steve Shaver, Vienna, W.V. 28. Shannon Babb, Moweaqua, Ill. 29. Bub McCool, Vicksburg, Miss. 30. Kent Robinson, Bloomington.

Heat winners – McCreadie, Moyer, Owens, Lanigan, McDowell and Madden.

B-Main winners – Landers and McCool.

Qualifying – Bloomquist, 15.009 seconds, 119.928 miles per hour.

The top Super Late Model drivers in the region as well as many of the best in the nation will once again fill the pits at "The Baddest Bullring in the South" to do wage an all-out war for a record purse including a $20,011 winner's share of over $70,000 in Super Late Model purse money on the line in the 100-lap affair.

The Magnolia State Championships showcase talent outside of the Super Late Model division. A spectacular field of Street Stocks will compete for $1,000-to-win/$100-to-start, Magnolia State Street Stock Championship and Crates Late Models will compete for a record $2,500-to-win/$150-to-start prize for the Magnolia State Crate Late Model Championship that should draw a huge field of cars.

Scott James over Lanigan in Florence Slugfest

UNION, KY (July 23, 2011) – If the King Family, promoters of Florence Speedway wanted to sell more tickets to next month’s Sunoco Race Fuels North/South 100 then Saturday Night was a golden opportunity as Scott James of Lawrenceburg, In and Darrell Lanigan of Union, KY put on a terrific race-long battle for the lead that came down to the checkered flag with James sliding across the finish line and into the frontstretch retaining wall.

James took the lead for good from Lanigan on lap 45 of the 50 lap event which was billed as a “North-South Tune-up” and as the two exited turn four on the final lap the cars of Rod Conley and Bill Blair Jr. were directly in front of the duo as Lanigan pulled even with James, but James was able to get to the finish line first after contacting the back of Blair’s car which sent James headlong into the wall. James’ car had to be towed from victory lane.

The race-long battle between the two who grew up watching and eventually racing at the famed half-mile oval saw pole sitter Jesse Lay grabbed the lead at the start of the $5,000 to win main event, but Lay would only lead a lap until fellow front row starter James was able to seize the lead.

Lanigan, who was driving his nephew Terry’s Rocket no. 28 moved into second on lap three just ahead of Lay, Mike Jewell and Josh McGuire.

James and Lanigan then got the crowd fired up as the two would go on a race-long pace that was filled with slide jobs, paint-swapping and wall banging that kept everyone’s interest for all 50 circuits.

James and Lanigan would hit traffic by lap 15 which did not slow either one’s attempts at passing each other. As James got trapped behind a car on lap 21 Lanigan went to the inside of James heading into turn three and the two made heavy contact.

Lanigan would gain the lead as it took James a lap or two to make sure his car was going to make it the rest of the way. During this time Jewell would close quickly on James and pressure him for second.

The top three would pull away from the rest of the field and run nose-to-tail with 28 laps scored. Then two laps later James would power to the lead around Lanigan, but a caution flag would negate the pass for the top spot.

On the restart Lanigan would remain on the point and for the rest of the race good hard racing would continue. James would throw a slider on Lanigan twice in the next five circuits after the race went green, but each time Lanigan would fight back and regain the point.

James then stalked Lanigan as James would throw another slide job in turn four on lap 45 on Lanigan and that would end up being the winning pass.

“I didn’t know he was there,” said James of the contact between the two on lap 21. “I was behind (Tim) Prince and I thought I was low enough to pass him, and there comes Darrell, he hit me pretty good, I thought I broke a shock or something, it took me a couple of laps to regain my thoughts,” said the 39-year-old second generation racer.

After the race the two exchanged handshakes at the scales, “he apologized to me afterwards and that’s good enough for me, I think I had a harder left rear tire on, the track was fast up high, I thought when I cleared him that one time, I had him, but then he came back and re-passed me, and with five to go, I thought it was time to go, I had enough patience there to get back by him,” said James.

“My Lucas Oil experience has helped me over the years,” said the winner commenting on the five years he spent racing on the tour, “the Lucas Oil racing and the Summernationals this year you have to learn to be patient, I have to thank Scott Riggs, without him, I wouldn’t be able to race, we are having a pretty good year, to come here in a couple of weeks and win the North/South would be the highlight of my career, no doubt about it.”

Lanigan, who settled for second said it was just some good old hard racing. “I got into him there early on, I had a run down the back stretch, he didn’t know I was there and I came down there and jumped over his left front tire, that wasn’t the way I wanted to pass him, he had a good car, probably the best one out there,” said the 41-year-old driver, who like James will be searching for his first career North/South 100 win in a few weeks.

It was James’ third overall win of 2011 in the Riggs Motorsports, Clearwave Communications, Valken Wheels, VP Fuels, Integra Racing Shocks, Murphy Motorsports, JFRGraphics.com, Jay (not a nice word)(not a nice word)(not a nice word)(not a nice word)ens Racing Engines, Rocket Chevrolet.

Trailing the two frontrunners were Hoosier-state drivers Mike Jewell of Scottsburg, IN in the Southern Indiana Rock Drilling, Cornett-powered MasterSbilt and fast qualifier John Gill of Mitchell, IN in the Terry Eaglin-owned RJE Wholesale Fertilizer Rocket Chassis. Brad Neat of Dunnville, KY finished fifth in the Red Buck Cigars, Cornett-powered Longhorn Chassis. Neat was the hard charger of the race passing eleven cars after starting 16th.

Completing the top ten were Josh Williams of West Harrison, IN; Dustin Neat of Dunnville, KY; Jason Jameson of Lawrenceburg, IN; Eddie Carrier Jr. of Salt Rock, WV, and Greg Johnson of Bedford, IN.

Florence North-South Tune-up Finish: Scott James, Darrell Lanigan, Mike Jewell, John Gill, Brad Neat, Josh Williams, Dustin Neat, Jason Jameson, Eddie Carrier Jr., Greg Johnson, Steve Casebolt, Chad Smith, Rod Conley, Bill Blair Jr., Jeff Alsip, Jim Price, Kent Robinson, Tim Prince, Jerry Rice, Steve Landrum, David Spille, Josh McGuire, Jesse Lay, Duane Chamberlain, Cody Mahoney

Legends Dirt Modifieds Heading to Pennsylvania & Ohio

Charlotte, NC (July 11, 2011)--The new, Ray Evernham-designed Legends Dirt Modifieds will be visiting Western Pennsylvania & Eastern Ohio from July 19-24.

A team from US Legend Cars International & the Dirt Track Racing School will leave Charlotte on July 18 to spend a week showing off the cars.

“I’m excited to get back up to Pennsylvania & Ohio later this month”, said Dirt Track Racing School President Shawn Parker. “There are a lot of open-wheel fans & drivers in that part of the country, and I think this car will really take off up there.”

The first stop will be Lernerville Speedway for the Silver Cup on Tuesday, July 19, where there will be two cars on display in the grandstand area. Following the midweek World of Outlaws race at Lernerville, the cars will head west to Sharon Speedway to be put on display and do a short exhibition race on July 22. After Sharon Speedway, the next stop will be Mercer Raceway Park, where the cars will again be on display & hit the track for an exhibition race on July 23.

The week of travelling will wrap up at Blanket Hill Speedway in Kittanning, Pennsylvania on Sunday, July 24 with a public test drive event from 1:00-3:30PM. The event will be run by the Dirt Track Racing School, and the cost will be $50 for a 10 lap driving session. Drivers 14 years of age & older are welcome to participate (with parental consent).

According to Parker, “the test drive events are a great way for people who are interested in the Legends Dirt Modified to see how the cars drive & what the new series is all about. The Legends Dirt Modified is a great entry-level dirt racecar for people looking to get going in racing without breaking the bank. They are fun to drive, easy to learn & very economical.”

For more information on the July 24 test drive event at Blanket Hill Speedway, please visit www.LegendsModified.com or call the Dirt Track Racing School at 704-728-2969.

 

The U.S. Legend Dirt Modifieds, which was designed by Ray Evernham and is built by US Legends Cars International, is an affordable, entry-level dirt track racecar that hit the market earlier this year. The car came to life through a partnership between Bruton Smith, Chairman and CEO of Speedway Motorsports, Inc. and former NASCAR team owner and championship-winning crew chief Ray Evernham.

Many of the nation’s top Modified drivers are expected to be in attendance for the Modified portion of the Southern Showdown.  With $3,000 to win at SOS on Friday and $5,000 to win at the nearby Portsmouth Raceway Park on Saturday, a potential $8,000 is on the line.  The top 20 Modified drivers who do not make the 30 lap feature on Friday will get to compete in a 12 lap, $400 to win non-qualifiers race.  That means that 40 Modified drivers will get to compete in a feature event and take home feature money.

Shamhart lights Shadyhill’s Firecracker 50

 

By ROB LEE

 

MEDARYVILLE, Ind. (July 4) – What are friends for, right?

Ed Shamhart’s friendship with fellow UMP Modified driver Chad Kinder and keen sense to check out local racers led to a big victory Monday evening at Shadyhill Speedway.

The Olney, Ill. driver took the lead on Lap 24 and won the annual Firecracker 50 and the $3,000 that goes with it.

Kinder won the event in 2010.

“This is my first time here, but (Kinder) gave me an idea how to run here,” Shamhart said in Victory Lane. “So we decided to drive the five hours and see what we’ve got.”

Track regular Brad DeYoung started on the pole after a heat win and paced the first 23 circuits before eighth-starting Shamhart moved his No. 12 GRT chassis around on the bottom groove. He had used the high side to move through the field as well keeping his eye on Shadyhill point leader Nick Allen.

“It’s kind of a problem when you’re leading knowing where to run,” Shamhart said. “Starting eighth I thought I’d feel it out. When I saw (Allen) down on the bottom and knowing he’s the hot driver around here that’s where I went.”

Shamhart moved around Allen for second on Lap 8 after a controversial caution flag a lap earlier. Allen was running nose to tail with Michigan’s Jacob Poel for second. The two made contact sending Allen spinning in Turn 2. Poel was black flagged for rough driving and scored last.

Another caution on Lap 18 bunched the field behind DeYoung. The race went green the rest of the way.

John DeMoss had the drive of the night to come from the back to take second.

“I think what we did was beat them on tire choice,” DeMoss said. “Most of them went with a softer compound.”

The Bloomington hotshoe was fourth in his heat and won the second consolation by more than a straightaway. He started 20th in the 22-car field and sliced his way through on both the top and bottom of the quarter-mile oval. He passed both McKay Wenger and DeYoung six laps from the end.

“I think we were rolling through the middle of the turns better too,” DeMoss said. “where other guys couldn’t.”

DeYoung held on for third followed by Fairbury, Ill.’s Wenger and veteran Russ Gabbert, of Berea, Kent. Allen; Illinois’ Danny Schwartz; Ryan Thomas, Martinsville;  local veteran Bub Patrick and Rensselaer’s Derek Losh rounded out the Top 10.

Star City’s Jesse Bitterling took the special 20-lap B-Main and gathered $1,000. Other heat winners were Allen, Wenger, Patrick and Gabbert. The other consolation went to Derek Bunning.

Forty Six UMP Modifieds from five states were on hand and joined regular classes Teen 4s, UMP Stock Cars, Pure Streets and I-Mods.

Shadyhill Speedway races every Saturday evening and is back in action this Saturday July 9. For more information log on to shadyhillspeedway.com.

Who: The 5th Annual Firecracker presented by GottaRace.com is a World of Outlaws Late Model Series-sanctioned event. In addition to the Outlaws travelling roster of drivers, previous champions Scott Bloomquist (2007), Brian Birkhofer (2008), Jimmy Mars (2009) and Shane Clanton (2010) are pre-registered for the $30,000 Mega Event.

 

In addition to the previous champions, these touring/affiliated drivers of the World of Outlaws Late Model Series will be in action; Josh Richards, Chub Frank, Darrell Lanigan, Clint Smith, Tim McCreadie, Tim Fuller, Vic Coffey, Austin Hubbard, John Lobb, Pat Doar, Jill George and 1991 Lernerville Speedway Track Champion Ron Davies.

 

Lernerville Speedway’s Budweiser Points leader Dave Hess Jr. and Mid-Season Championship feature winner Boom Briggs are registered for the event and locked in to the $30,000-to-win Firecracker 100 A-Main. Briggs won last Friday Night’s Mid-Season Championship and the track provisional that goes along with it. Hess has the other track provisional by virtue of leading the Bud points. Other Lernerville regulars that are pre-registered to compete this weekend include Gregg Satterlee, Jared Miley, Lynn Geisler, John Garvin Jr., Dave Murdick, Ken Schaltenbrand, John Garvin Jr., Jason Fosnaught, Bryan Force, Russell King, Garrett Krummert, Gary Lyle and Herman Bertolini.

 

Regional drivers Robbie Blair, Davey Johnson, Mike Johnson, Matt Lux, Dan Stone, Coleby Frye, Doug Drown, Jared and Jacob Hawkins, Chris and Derrick Casner, Corey Conley, Greg Oakes and Denton Boyer are all expected to stake their claim for the $30,000-to-win, 100-lap shootout.

Bobby Labonte Racing drivers Earl Pearson Jr. and Brad Neat are scheduled to race in the Firecracker 100 this weekend. Other nationally known Late Model drivers like Steve Francis, Brady Smith, Rick Eckert, Tyler Reddick, Jonathan Davenport, Will Vaught, Bub McCool, Chip Brindle and Steve Shaver are all expected to be throwing their hats in the Firecracker ring.

 

Why: To crown a $30,000+ Firecracker 100 Champion. The winner’s purse is $30,000; the “+” comes into the equation with monies won during preliminary competition on Thursday and Friday Nights’ complete $6,000-to-win shows. The possibility exists that a driver could leave Lernerville Speedway with $42,000 in their pocket!

 

Where to Stay: Reserved Camping is available on site, but is almost sold out! Reserved camping provides a flat space with proximity to the pits. General Camping will also be available free of charge on a first come, first serve basis, but will be further away from the track. There are no electric/water hookups in either area, but we will have on-site shower facilities again this season and strategically placed Port-o-Johns thanks to Approved Toilet Rentals.

 

The Days Inn in Butler, PA is the top recommendation for travelers planning to stay at a hotel. The Days Inn in Butler is located 10 miles from the speedway on route 8 just south of Butler. The Days Inn has an indoor pool, on-site restaurant & lounge and is in close proximity to a handful of restaurants including McDonalds, Pizza Hut and Burger King.

 

Fans of Lernerville Speedway can also get a discounted rate at the Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott in Butler, PA. With a few more amenities and services, the Fairfield standard rate for Lernerville Speedway fans is just $109 plus 9% occupancy tax. The Fairfield Inn & Suites can be reached at (724) 283-0009.

 

Other nearby towns with hotels include (arranged in order of proximity) Butler, Kittanning, New Kensington, Cranberry Twp. and Harmar Twp. Of those locations, while a little but further away, The Days Inn in Harmar Twp. probably provides the second best option to Butler as it is a short, easy trip down routes 356 & 28 and the area is loaded with restaurants, hotels and retail options.

 

How to get involved: As mentioned above, the 5th Annual Firecracker 100 presented by GottaRace.com is more than a Three-Day World of Outlaws Late Model Series Race weekend; it’s a total fan experience! Over the course of the weekend, fans can watch and even participate in activities off the track.

 

On Thursday Night, after time trials, heat races, Last Chance Showdowns and a $6,000-to-win, 30-lap WoO LMS Feature, the Joe Patrick Band will rock the crowd with a rousing concert in the parking lot, free of charge! But between the racing and the rocking, fans will be re-introduced to the Ms. Firecracker applicants and there will be a driver/fan cornhole tournament in the expanded vendor area behind the main grandstands near turn four. Fans can sign up for the cornhole tournament at the Lernerville Souvenir Trailer Thursday Night.

 

Friday afternoon’s slate includes a Best Tailgating Party & Best Camp Site Contest judged by the fine folks from Budweiser and the announcement of the finalists for the Ms. Firecracker Pageant. Another complete WoO LMS Show highlighted by a $6,000-to-win, 30-lap Feature will be followed by a dazzling fireworks display by Extreme Pyrotechnics and another concert in the parking lot with National Recordings Artist Vanessa Campagna and Firecracker fan favorite NOMaD.

 

The off-track fan festivities resume Saturday afternoon with the Annual Driver/Fan Horseshoe Tournament at 12:00. Fans will be selected Thursday and Friday Nights by signups at the Lernerville Souvenir Trailer and T-Shirt tosses. The fan interaction peaks with a pre-race Driver Autograph Session under the grandstands at 4:00. As mentioned above, you can get priority access to the Driver Autograph Session by purchasing your tickets in advance! In between the horseshoes and driver autograph session we’ll squeeze in one more segment with the Firecracker girls and choose three semi-finalists to move on the Sheetz Victory Lane where the new Ms. Firecracker will be announced!

 

And finally, the pits will be open to all fans after all racing has come to a close after the 5th Annual Firecracker 100 presented by GottaRace.com 100-lap Feature. Fans of all ages can see their favorite drivers and cars up close and personal! The perfect end to what promises to be a FANtastic weekend!!

After consecutive rain outs promoter Bob Sargent and the Track Enterprises staff treated race fans from all over the world to a revamped Indiana State Fair mile and a new format last year two nights before the 2010 Indianapolis 500. 2009 Hoosier Hundred winner and second generation driver Shane Hollingsworth ran strong for a portion of the evening but a different Shane (also a second generation she) with a far different background stole the show. Shane Hmiel, a former NASCAR Nationwide Series driver and son of NASCAR team manager Steve Hmiel left his Pleasant Garden, North Carolina home to test the open wheel waters and pursue an Indy 500 ride.

 

Hmiel started second alongside polesitter Levi Jones and led until the scheduled lap 51 red flag ‘intermission’. During the stoppage Hmiel’s crew changed three tires on his Toyota powered machine and he restarted the event in l2th and quickly moved toward the front, taking the lead on lap 77 from Russ Gamester and grabbing the checkered flag in one of the most emotional scenes ever on the storied one mile dirt oval.

 

Unfortunately a late season accident at the Terre Haute Action Track during the Sumar Classic led to injuries which have relegated the defending winner to spectator status. However, a number of drivers are seeking to put their name on the list of racing legends who have won the Hoosier Hundred.

 

Three time Hoosier Hundred winner and 1997 Silver Crown champ Dave Darland of Lincoln, Indiana reigns as one of the local favorites for the 2011 Hoosier Hundred as does potential entrant Jon Stanbrough of Kokomo. Hollingsworth, of Indianapolis is also expected to return as is Peru, Indiana resident Russ Gamester and 2000 USAC Silver Crown champ Tracy Hines of New Castle.

 

Noblesville, Indiana’s Bryan Clauson returns to the ‘big cars’ driving for 1995 USAC Silver Crown champ Tony Stewart and may have the unique distinction of becoming the first driver in nearly ten years to run the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the Indiana State Fairgrounds dirt track on the same Memorial Day weekend! By virtue of his 2010 USAC Drivers Championship Clauson secured a ride in the Indy Lights Series for the oval tracks and is slated to make his debut in the Freedom 100 on May 27 and then hop over to the fairgrounds on 38th street for the 100-mile dirt track race.

 

Three time USAC Silver Crown Champion Bud Kaeding of Campbell, California is in search of an unprecedented fourth USAC Silver Crown title and surprisingly his first ever mile dirt track win. Kaeding came close to a Hoosier Hundred win last year, finishing second. Tucson, Arizona’s Jerry Coons, Jr. won the 2008 Silver Crown championship and also lacks a victory in one of the 100-mile dirt track races. Parma, Michigan’s Brian Tyler has four 100-mile dirt track wins between Springfield and DuQuoin and could become the 14rh driver to win on all three fairground dirt ovals with a win at the Indiana fairgrounds.  Two-time (1991 & 1993) Hoosier Hundred winner Jeff Swindell is expected to return driving for the Carl Edwards-RE Technologies team.

 

Olney, Illinois pilot Levi Jones is a two-time pole sittter for the Hoosier Hundred and the defending USAC Silver Crown champion. He led 99 and 3/4 laps of the 2006 race before being passed by teammate Josh Wise. He should be joined by fellow Illini Randy Bateman of Murphysboro, Zach Daum of Pocahontas, Elkhart’s Chris Urish and perennial championship contender A.J. Fike of Galesburg. It is unknown at press time if Indy 500 veteran and 1998 Hoosier Hundred winner Donnie Beechier of Springfield will return as an entrant.

 

The 2011 Hoosier Hundred continues a tradition of championship auto racing at the Indiana State Fairgrounds beginning in 1903 when Barney Oldfield turned the first mile a minute lap. Auto racing competition on the flat oval picked up steam in 1953 when Indianapolis Motor Speedway Safety Director J0 Quinn and local businessman Roger Wolcott promoted the very first Hoosier Hundred in 1953 a race many old timers swear is the best championship race in history. Many winners of the Wolcott Cup also appear on the Borg Warner trophy at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, including Bob Sweikert, Jimmy Bryan, A.J. Foyt, Al Unser, Parnelli Jones and Mario Andretti. When the Silver Crown Series became a separate division in 1971, driver such as Pancho Carter, Tom Bigelow, Gary Bettenhausen, Jack Hewitt and Jeff Swindell added their names to the hall of fame winners list of the Hoosier Hundred.

 

Practice for the 2011 Hoosier Hundred begins at 5 p.m. eastern with qualifications at 6 and racing at 7 p.m. UMP Modifieds join the USAC Silver Crown cars for the second Indyana Classic, Ken Schrader is the defending champion. Tickets are on sale now at Ticketmaster and by calling Track Enterprises at

Carrier Corrals First Ever Win at Florence Speedway on Saturday Night

 

UNION, KY (March 19, 2011) – Eddie Carrier Jr. of Salt Rock, WV capitalized on a penalty levied on race leader, Don O’Neal of Martinsville, IN on a lap-29 restart as he went on to score his first ever win at Florence (KY) Speedway on Saturday Night earning $5,000 for capturing the 35th Annual Spring 50.  The 40-year-old second generation racer led the remaining 21 laps of the event to take the win over Scott James of Lawrenceburg, IN, O’Neal, Rod Conley of Wheelersburg, OH and Chad Simpson of Mount Vernon, IA.

 

“It feels great to finally get a win here at Florence, we will definitely be back, the track was real good considering all the rain they have had,” said Carrier, who emerged from his Rocket Ford Fusion to the delight of the large crowd of spectators who were on hand to witness the event.  Carrier who was born and raised in Kentucky spent the first 31 years of his life in the Bluegrass State until moving to West Virginia in 2002 to drive for Carl Grover Motorsports based out of Ona, WV.

 

Scott James and Kent Robinson paced the field at the start of the race with James grabbing the lead in the Riggs Motorsports entry.  The first caution of the race appeared on lap five for 2010 UMP Late Model Champion, Rusty Schlenk, who slowed on the frontstretch.  The restart would see James continue to lead with Carrier, who started fourth running in second.  Eric Wells, who started seventh quickly made his way to the front grabbing the second slot from Carrier on lap six.

 

Wells then started to challenge James for the lead was the top four cars of James, Wells, Carrier, and O’Neal were tightly bunched in the race for the top spot.  The second caution appeared on lap eight for defending Florence track champion, Jason Jameson, who came to a halt in turn row.

 

On the restart Carrier would make a nifty move splitting both James and Wells to take the lead off of turn number two.  O’Neal then started to get wound up as the veteran pilot came from fourth to second on the restart to challenge Carrier for the lead.  A caution on lap 14 would once again slow the field.

 

On the restart James, who was running third clipped the inside burm in turn two causing him to spin.  James would restart on the tail, but he would become a factor again late in the race.

 

Carrier and O’Neal then would put on a fantastic battle for the lead running side-by-side on several occasions until O’Neal was able to forge ahead on lap 19.  O’Neal then started to pull away from Carrier and Wells, who were battling for second.  O’Neal’s good sized advantage would disappear by lap 27 when the caution came out for Frank Heckenast Jr, who slowed on the main straightaway with an oil leak and a right rear flat tire.

 

The restart of the race would be called back when officials said O’Neal fired before the cone in turn four, as the ensuing penalty caused O’Neal to lose one spot in the running order.  Carrier would now be the new leader of the race on the restart, with O’Neal and 12th starting Steve Casebolt lined up side-by-side for the Delaware double-file restart.  Casebolt’s brilliant run through the field would come to an end when he lost his brakes as he pulled out of the race.

 

Carrier would then take command of the race as O’Neal was now in second followed by James, who had come all the way from the back to third with Simpson, who was making his first ever start at Florence on fourth, followed by Conley, who like James had come from the tail after hitting the cone early in the race and suffering a penalty.

 

Carrier would start to enter some lapped traffic by lap 38, but two laps later that would all clear out as Christian Rayburn, could not quite make it to the infield pit area on lap 40 which brought out the final caution of the race.

 

The final restart would see Carrier sprint away from the field as O’Neal and James went door-to-door to settle the second spot.  James would clear O’Neal on lap 42, and would have eight laps to try and track down Carrier.

 

It was not to be for either James and O’Neal as the two Hoosier State drivers had no luck in chasing down Carrier, who sailed on for his first win at Florence Speedway in his Carl Grover Motorsports, Engines, Inc., Cox Wrecker Service, Hess, Stewart and Campbell, Blue Ridge Machinery and Tools and Ohlins sponsored car..

 

James, in his first start of the season in the Riggs Motorsports entry out of Harrisburg, IL took second in the Clearwave Communications, Jay D1ckens powered, Rocket Malibu.  O’Neal was third in the Magnaflow Exhaust Products, Jay D1ckens powered, MasterSbilt Chevrolet.  Conley was fourth in the Conley Trucking, Draime Engines, Rocket Impala SS with Simpson finishing fifth in his GATR, Pro Power Racing Engines, MasterSbilt entry.

 

Completing the top ten were Jesse Lay of Verona, KY, Bobby Pierce of Oakwood, IL, Robby Hensley of Richwood, KY, Corey McKenzie of Paintsville, KY and Jarrod Breeding of Isom, KY.

 

Eddie Carrier Jr. was the fastest qualifier with a time of 15.555 seconds.  Heat races were won by Scott James, Kent Robinson and Chad Simpson.

 

Spring 50 Feature Finish:  Eddie Carrier Jr., Scott James, Don O’Neal, Rod Conley, Chad Simpson, Jesse Lay, Bobby Pierce, Robby Hensley, Corey McKenzie, Jarrod Breeding, Brian Gray, Christian Rayburn, John Gill, Steve Casebolt, Justin Rattliff, Kent Robinson, Eric Wells, Frank Heckenast Jr., Kenneth Howell, Jason Jameson, Rusty Schlenk

Bloomington Speedway 2011 Schedule


Eighty-eight years ago, a small dirt oval was constructed on a plot of farmland between a rambling brook and a grassy hillside a couple miles south of Bloomington, Indiana. Many changes have taken place as the decades rolled past, but one thing that has remained consistent is the exciting short track racing on Friday nights at Bloomington Speedway. With the release of this year's schedule, promoter Mike Miles has planned something special for everyone who walks through the front gate.


For long-time racing fans who follow the most competitive series in the country, the World Of Outlaws make their return to the south side oval in August, and USAC has three visits scheduled. Local racers who comprise the majority of the Friday night racing fields will note that the Speedway offers twenty nights of racing with some of the most popular programs of the summer, and even increased the prize money at one if its biggest traditional events. And for the regulars who love the season-long competition and hometown Friday night racing, Bloomington has added a new, entry-level series that will be as unpredictable as it is exciting.


Many have been wondering when the Outlaws would return to Bloomington. With high banks and sweeping turns, the red clay quarter-mile is too fast to keep them away for long and August 5th will mark their first appearance in 11 years. Along with Bloomington's own Steve Kinser, all of the stars that make the Outlaws a unique racing experience, including Donny Schatz, Joey Saldana, Jason Myers, and Danny Lasoski are expected to compete for the $10,000 first prize. As an added bonus, Miles has announced that every advance purchase adult ticket will also receive a pit pass.


To compliment the fury of the Outlaws, the thunder and lightening of USAC's sprint cars have both the traditional Indiana Sprint Week event on July 15th, and also the Larry Rice Classic, now moved to May 20th. On June 10th, USAC's midgets join Bloomington's regular sprint cars for a thrilling open wheel doubleheader as part of Midget Week.


In other high-profile sprint car competition, Bloomington opens the 2011 King of Indiana Sprint Series (KISS) tour on May 6 as Jon Stanbrough begins his quest of a sixth series championship. On June 24th, Mike Miles has boosted the purse of the 23rd running of the Sheldon Kinser Memorial to $4,000 for the win and $350 to start. And as the summer begins to wind down, the September 16th Fall Clash will showcase the Midwest Sprint Car Series with a $5,000 payday to wrap up the season.


Once the gates open on April 15, the action heats up quickly as the track's sprint cars, UMP-sanctioned modifieds and super stocks are joined by the new Hornets division. The Hornets feature stock front wheel drive chassis with a 104-inch wheelbase, 4-cylinder engines of the same year and model for the chassis, and automatic or standard transmissions. Miles notes that the promoter has the option to claim any car for $1,400. With drivers as young as 13 years old allowed to compete, the Hornets will also run at Brownstown Speedway.


In other highlights, the American Modified Series will compete on May 13th and July 8th. Also, any driver winning two consecutive features will have to start tenth the next week, except for the Hornet division, where each winner will start the next feature in tenth. Finally, in one of the most explosive celebrations of the summer, the fireworks show on July 1st will be bigger and better than ever.

Ray Cook Leases Tri-County Race Track for 2011 Season!

 

(BRASSTOWN, NORTH CAROLINA)  As if being a national Dirt Late Model star on the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and the promoter of the successful Southern Nationals Series didn't keep Ray Cook busy enough during the year, Ray announced today that he has leased the nearby Tri-County Race Track in Brasstown, North Carolina for the 2011 season.  With the possibility that the historic 1/4-mile, dirt oval may not open this season and with the help of a lot of other people, Ray and crew will do their best to keep the track going.

 

"I grew up going to Tri-County every Friday night when I was about ten years old and ran my first race there when I was fifteen in a Pony car," quoted Cook via telephone today.  "There are a lot of racers in this area that need Tri-County to thrive in order to have somewhere to race and hone their skills.  Obviously, with me racing full-time on the Lucas Oil trail and promoting the Southern Nationals as well, I am not going to be there every time we open the gate at Tri-County.  I have been fortunate enough to assemble a great crew to work at the track; however, as Kip Cochran, Leon Latham, and Brian Kennersley all have a ton of experience."

 

A big change to the racing program at Tri-County will be the move to Friday nights.  There are currently six Saturday night tracks within a two-hour radius of the Brasstown/Murphy area and Tri-County will now be the only Friday night track that will run Super Late Models.  In addition to the Super Late Models, Ray will also run the Limited/Crate Late Model, Modified Street, Road Runners/Street Stock, and Mini Stock/Pony divisions.

 

Initial plans for 2011 call for the five classes to be in action every other Friday night at Tri-County starting possibly as early as March 25.  Barring rain-outs and other unforeseen circumstances, Ray is hoping to put together a 15-18 race schedule for the 2011 season.  A few practice sessions are also in the works prior to the tentative opening date of March 25.

 

To include input from all of the racers and race fans in the area, Ray is holding an open forum at the Brasstown Community Center this Monday night, February 28 at 7:00 p.m.  Be sure to show up on Monday to let your voice be heard on topics concerning the Tri-County Race Track.  The Brasstown Community Center is located at the entrance to the race track off of Setiwig Road.

 

More information about the 2011 racing season at Tri-County will be released next week following the meeting at the Brasstown Community Center.  A new website is also in the works and will be online and fully functional prior to the start of the season.

 

"I look forward to the challenge of bringing Tri-County Race Track back to life," Cook went on to say.  "Car counts and fan attendance have really dropped in recent years, but I have hope that we can change things around and put on a great program for the fans and racers.  It is going to take a lot of work, but with the help of Jack Wimpey and many others who have volunteered their service, maybe we can pull it off!"

 

If anyone would like to volunteer, sponsor, or help in any way at the Tri-County Race Track this year, please do not hesitate to contact Ray Cook at 706-835-7503 or rpaocook@frontier.com.

In a Comprehensive Effort to Unify and Nationalize Midget Racing, Lucas Oil Assumes Title Sponsorship of the POWRi Series

   

 

The newly labeled Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget Series will feature the most competitive racing in the country and is known to draw open wheel racing's top drivers. The highly organized series includes attractive attributes such as exciting circuits, sell-out co-sanctioned events, fierce competition, and a collective average of the largest purses in Midget racing.


The fastest growing midget series is often promoted as "joint events" with other top performing organizations like the Lucas Oil ASCS Sprint Car Dirt Series. These co-sanctioned dates provide the exciting sport of Midget racing an opportunity to compete at prestigious venues such as Missouri's Lucas Oil Speedway and the Junction Speedway during Nebraska's Speedweek. Another prominent event, with $100,000 in purses winnings is the Speedway Motors Midget Money week at Solomon Valley Raceway in Beloit Kansas.
      

Lucas Oil's Executive Vice President, Bob Patison shared his enthusiasm for the success of the proven series and plans for the future of Midget racing. "POWRi has been known as a feeder series and stepping stone for up and coming drivers to polish their skills. We identified the growing potential for this organization to unify the sport of Midget Racing. With Lucas Oil backing the POWRi National Midget Series and scheduling co-sanctioned events with ASCS, we are laying down the ground work for a stable future."

 

Kenny Brown, Director of POWRi stated "We are thrilled to further develop the sport and are going to take Midget racing to the next level. Several of the 2011 event highlights will feature TV Coverage on SPEED with Lucas Oil's On The Edge produced by NEWAVE Productions. This is really exciting to offer national level exposure. The Drivers recognize this and should draw an all-star cast of drivers from the sport's top sanctioning organizations. Last year we had 150 different teams participating in the series and between 35-45 cars at every event. With events like the 2 day Cornhusker Midget Nationals at Junction Motor Speedway paying $12,000 to the winner, the highest paying midget purse for 2011, we can expect even more for entries this season."

 

"The King of Sprint Cars" and ASCS Founder & President, Emmett Hahn expressed his support for POWRi and Lucas Oil's new initiative for Midget Racing. "The business of race promotions is hard. The vision has to stay on course. When you treat everyone fair & equal, and install the keys to success, you got a winner. In the case of the Lucas Oil POWRi Series, the keys are organization, TV coverage, points fund, and large cash purses.

The Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget Series schedule includes 26 dates throughout the Midwest including IL, IN, KS, MO, NE and WI. For more information and details on all the biggest Midget events in the country, check out the POWRi Web Site.
