    The Esslinger valve cover threw me off there for a bit. LOL
  2. Chase Junghans returns to Victory Lane after a 3-year WoO Late Model winless streak SARVER, PA — August 19, 2018 — Prior to Sunday night’s Outlaw invasion at Eriez Speedway, June 26, 2015 was the ShopQuik No. 18 of Chase Junghans’ last victory with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Models. Junghans’ night was almost perfect across the event board, time trialing second in Flight A and going on to win heat race number 2. He then went on to re-draw the outside pole, alongside track favorite Boom Briggs, take the lead on lap 1 of the feature and never looked back, leading all but just one lap out of the 50 completed. And what a relief it was for Chase and the rest of his team… “I thought that first one was going to be hard to get – we kind of fell into that,” Junghans said. “The second one was way harder, so hopefully we have the monkey off our back and we can start clicking them off.” A yellow flag with just ten laps remaining re-stacked the field, giving second-place running Brandon Sheppard a few final shots at the lead. But Junghans stuck to his line and prevailed. “I started hearing someone, but before that caution I saw that blue [no.1] car and I was like ‘[dang!] he’s about to pass me.” Junghans said. “I kind of picked [Sheppard] with some lapped cars and then the caution came out and my guys told me where they thought I should run. So I moved up a little bit on the track and that worked really good.” Chase went on to say he plans on taking this momentum with him into the World 100 at Eldora in two weeks. One thing that he won’t be taking for sure is his crew member Corey Richman’s quite lengthy locks… After Lernerville in 2015, Richman vowed not to cut or trim his hair until Chase won with the Outlaws again. Sunday was the end of that streak, and as Series announcer Rick Eshelman brought out the scissors and held them high in Victory Lane, Junghans possessed a look of humor and relief. Defending Series Champion Brandon Sheppard crossed the stripe in the runner-up spot. Coming all the way from the 16th starting spot and picking up the KSE Hard Charger Award in the process, Sheppard said it was an unsuccessful effort in his preliminary events that may have cost him a win. “In order to win these races, you’ve got to be able to do good early in the night and start up front,” Sheppard said. “It’s really, really tough to come from the back with all of this competition we’ve got at these races.” Sheppard did all of his work under the long stretch of 40 green-flag laps, where the field got spread out and lapped traffic began early on. He had a lot of ground to make up, which is why he said he felt his car was used up by the time a yellow came out with ten to go. Chris Madden rounded out the podium in third, wrapping up yet another top-five finish to get those all-important championship points in which he still leads Mike Marlar and Brandon Sheppard by 30 points. Track conditions were not particularly to his liking, but he was pleased with a podium finish. “It was very holey, spotty and choppy here and there – just a dirty place,” Madden said. “If we could have drawn the front row, we might have had a chance a winning the thing. But we drew a four and ran third, so we’re happy with it.” Next stop… The Series’ next tour stop lies in Dundee, New York, as the Outlaws prepare to debut at the ¼-mile oval during the track’s annual Fall Nationals on September 21.

  6. Johnny Scott soars in Salina's ARMI "Salute to Veterans" PRYOR CREEK, Okla. (Aug. 18)--Johnny Scott's march to the USMTS national championship made a stop at the Salina Highbanks Speedway on Saturday for the 6th Annual Salute To Our Veterans presented by ARMI.Scott, who brought a huge points lead into the event, expanded his cushion with his third win in his last five starts and tenth USMTS Hunt for the Casey's Cup victory of the 2018 campaign.Following a pre-race military flyover by Paul Mackey and the Warbirds, a field of 42 entrants competed in five heat races with Scott and his twin brother Stormy getting wins along with Jason Hughes, Zack VanderBeek and Trevor Latham.Stormy Scott redrew the Sybesma Graphics Pole Position but led just a single lap as Lucas Schott blasted to the front to lead the second lap around the high-banked 3/8-mile clay oval near Pryor Creek, Okla.But five laps later Schott pulled to a stop at the top of the banking with a broken J-bar to bring out the caution flag and ending his strong run.Johnny Scott, who started fourth, was in charge for the restart and that's where he remained until the end of the 35th and final lap.With just seven points races remaining on the 2018 schedule, Scott is in the driver's seat to claim the $50,000 champion's check at season's end.Stormy Scott finished second to give the Scott Brothers Racing duo a 1-2 finish while Hughes finished third ahead of 12th-starting Tyler Wolff and Friday's Grant Junghans Memorial winner, Jake O'Neil, who started 17th and picked up the FK Rod Ends Hard Charger Award.Cade Dillard followed O'Neil from the ninth row of the starting field and finished sixth. Although he didn't win the FK Rod Ends Hard Charger Award, he did snag the Eibach Spring Forward Award by advancing 18 positions throughout the program.Trevor Latham garnered seventh and Rodney Sanders turned a rarely-needed provisional starting spot into an eighth-place finish. Dereck Ramirez and VanderBeek rounded out the top ten finishers.Three big events are on tap next Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 24-26, beginning with the 8th Annual USMTS Rapid Rumble at the Rapid Speedway in Rock Rapids, Iowa. On Saturday it's the 8th Annual USMTS River City Rumble at the Park Jefferson Speedway in Jefferson, S.D., and the tripleheader wraps up with the Sandy Benson Memorial at the Casino Speedway in Watertown, S.D., on Sunday.To learn more about the United States Modified Touring Series, visit www.usmts.com online or call 515-832-7944.

  7. Donny Schatz Sweeps Weekend at Home with 17th WoO Sprint win of 2018 at Red River Valley WEST FARGO, ND – August 18, 2018 – Donny Schatz completed the weekend sweep of his home state of North Dakota, taking the lead on Lap 23 to win his 17th World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series Feature of 2018 Saturday night at Red River Valley Speedway. Jacob Allen finished second as he continues to close in on his first career Outlaw win with Kerry Madsen completing the podium for the second consecutive night. David Gravel won the Sears Craftsman Dash to the earn the pole for the 30-lap Feature alongside Shane Stewart. Gravel got the jump on the initial start and led the opening circuit. Jacob Allen worked his way forward from fourth to take second away from Donny Schatz on Lap 5 and two laps later Allen got by Gravel to take command of the field. Allen led for four laps before bobbling in lapped traffic, trying to split a pair of lapped cars, on Lap 12, allowing Gravel to steal the lead back and Schatz to move into second. The trio captivated the large Red River Valley Speedway crowd as they jockeyed for the lead. Gravel worked his way through traffic, before the first caution of the event flew for Thomas Kennedy, who ended up backwards in turn one after battling with Sides for sixth with 18 laps complete. Allen edged back in front of Schatz on the restart, but Schatz slid the young Hanover, PA native to take second back at the line. A lap later, Ian Madsen slowed with a flat tire, ending his top-ten run. Brad Sweet also headed pit side with a flat tire. With tires going down, the decision was made to go with single-file restarts the rest of the night, which allowed David Gravel to steadily lead with 11 to go. Schatz reeled in Gravel with a big run off of turn two and shot underneath him down the backstretch to take the lead on Lap 23. As it turns out, Gravel was nursing an ailing tire as he slowed with a flat right rear the next lap, bringing out the final caution of the evening. Allen stayed right with Schatz on the restart and looked for a way around the nine-time Series Champion, to no avail. Schatz hit his marks, didn’t make any mistakes and went on to win his 17th Feature of the season and extend his points lead. When asked about what it means to win in front of his hometown crowd, Schatz kept it simple, “It’s what you live for. You hope when you roll near home to put on a good show, have some good runs and win some races.” “I’m so fortunate for my team, they are the reason I’m standing here. We’ve been together for a long time and we have a lot of fun doing this,” Schatz added before thanking the track crew for their efforts to provide a multiple-groove racing surface and the large crowd for coming out and supporting. Jacob Allen continues to impress, finishing second and while he was a little disappointed to not seal the deal, he was still pleased with the run. “Donny is a legend and to compete with him for a win was a lot of fun. I’ve ran second quite a few times this year and I want to win one so bad. One of these days, I’m going to bag on,” Allen said convincingly. For the second consecutive night, Kerry Madsen completed the podium and was in good spirts. “I’ve always loved coming up here [to North Dakota]. My team works really hard and we’re happy with two podiums this weekend,” Madsen said before thanking the fans for coming out, letting them know his appreciation for the racing support in the area. Greg Wilson was humming on the bottom of the speedway and charged from 13th to fourth. Logan Schuchart went up in smoke in his Heat, relegating him to the Last Chance Showdown, which he won with ease. Schuchart charged from 19th to complete the top five in the Feature, earning KSE Hard Charger Honors. The World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series continues its 40th Anniversary Season with a return to the Black Hills Speedway in Rapid City, SD next Friday, August 24 before making the trek over to Big Sky Speedway in Billings, MT on Saturday, August 25.

  8. Marlar's win as easy as 1 (start at track), 5 (wins in 2018), 7 (Series wins all-time) Being that it's his first full year on the World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series tour, it makes sense that there are a few tracks on the schedule where it's fair to say Mike Marlar is not the most experienced driver in the pit area. Prior to Saturday night’s event, Marlar had never raced at the Port Royal Speedway. But he walked out of the night a winner – something not a lot of drivers can say they’ve done the first time they visited a new racetrack. Marlar began the night with a blazing fast time trial lap of 17.544, won heat race number three and re-drew on the outside of row two. Within four laps of the drop of the green, the Winfield, Tennessee, native jumped to the lead and began pulling away from second-place driver Brandon Sheppard and the rest of the field. Marlar led until just inside of ten laps remaining, when he approached the rear bumper of a slower car down the backstretch. “Everything was going good until I came up on that lapped car,” Marlar said of the incident. “I thought he was going to go through the middle and he kind of slid up in front of me and it took the air off [of the car’s nose]. This place is so big and high-speed that it nearly wrecked me.” Marlar’s car suddenly broke loose and slid up the track into the outside retaining wall. The level of contact was nothing major, but he did lose a 1.5-second lead over Sheppard in the process. Try as he might have, Sheppard just couldn’t make up the gap in time, despite a caution coming out with four laps to go. Marlar said he actually sustained a bit of damage after the contact, bending the right-front portion of the bumper down, causing it to drag on the racing surface throughout the remainder of the race. But he kept the car under control and parked it in Victory Lane for his fifth win of the 2018 season and seventh on the all-time wins list. Brandon Sheppard drove across the stripe in second – a much-needed podium finish to stay in the thick of the points battle. The defending Series Champion said he was happy with second, but knew there was room to get by Marlar. “Mike got to the lead before I did and that pretty much set the tone for the race,” Sheppard said. “I had a few opportunities to get underneath of him, but I just couldn’t quite get him cleared the way I wanted to.” Sheppard was a number of car-lengths back when Marlar hit the turn three wall, which may have been the out Marlar needed to keep the lead. Sheppard said he knew when he saw it happen that it was a great opportunity to make the pass, unfortunately it just didn’t happen. “I was thinking that was my opportunity, but I had already committed lower than I needed to be to make something happen,” Sheppard said. Devin Moran completed the podium to score his 18th top-5 of the year, and it did not come easy. Coming from the 10th starting spot, Devin battled high and low to make passes for position, even with a super fast and tacky racing surface. “Staring 10th on a track that’s super fast makes it tough in a 40-lap event,” Moran said. “Port Royal [officials] did a great job with the track. With all the rain they had earlier, they worked out as much as they could and they gave us a racy track.” Other race notes – Rain clouds settled in over the Juniata County Fairgrounds early on in the event, pushing the schedule back two whole hours before hot laps began. This put a ton of moisture into the track’s surface, making for very tacky and fast racing. A healthy field of 36 Outlaw Late Models took time on Saturday night, representing the good car counts that were expected for the Pennsylvania Trifecta. There were a solid bunch of wrecks throughout the evening in both 410 Sprint Car and Late Model action, but none worse than Bryan Bernheisel’s collision with Rick Eckert, Shane Clanton and Austin Hubbard on the backstretch out of turn two. Eckert dropped a drive shaft in corner exit and slowed, causing a chain reaction that ended up sending Bernheisel onto his roof. Everyone involved walked away just fine; their cars, however, did not. Next stop… The Outlaws will wrap up the four races, four days weekend in Erie, PA today at the Eriez Speedway. Josh Richards is the all-time tour leader in wins at this track with four (2007, 2010, 2015, 2016). Brandon Sheppard won the race last year; look for him to carry that success back in from last year this Sunday.

  10. Hometown Hero Jeremy Campbell Captures Freedom Tour Finale at 81 Speedway by Lonnie Wheatley WICHITA, Kan. (August 18, 2018) – Once again, the USAC Southwest Sprint Cars “Freedom Tour” finale at 81 Speedway left a near-capacity crowd standing on its feet and roaring approval. This time, the raucous crowd was cheering on hometown ace Jeremy Campbell as he outdueled Arizona’s Charles Davis, Jr., for the $2,500 winner’s share in Saturday night’s final 30-lapper of the Sixth Annual “Freedom Tour”. “I can’t even describe what this feels like,” an enthused Campbell commented in victory lane. “This is the only time we do this each year, but I think we’ve finally got the non-wing setup figured out and we know how to get around this racetrack.” It proved to be a monumental battle with Campbell ultimately capturing the lead for keeps on the 22nd round and then fending off Davis, Jr., over the closing circuits to secure the win aboard the Dan’s Cycle No. 10c Sprint Car. After a dramatic last-corner pass of Chris Bonneau to win the night’s second qualifying race, Campbell gridded the feature field outside the front row with Friday night winner Davis, Jr., leading the way to the green flag from the pole position. Campbell gunned into the lead at the outset and worked the high side of the track to open up a 2.5-second advantage in the early rounds. But, when traffic came into play after eight rounds, Davis, Jr., chomped away at the advantage in short order before sliding into the lead on the 11th circuit. The pair battled for the point through traffic until the first of just two cautions flew after 20 laps with Campbell shooting back out front on a lap 22 restart after the second caution appeared just one circuit later. While Campbell set the pace on the cushion in the closing rounds, Davis, Jr., tracked his every move and was poised for the late slider until tripping over the turn one cushion on the 28th lap and losing several car-lengths. Campbell was flawless over the final two laps to finish off the landmark win, doing several celebratory donuts that brought the crowd to a roar as Davis, Jr., fell short of an 81 Speedway sweep with the runner-up finish. While Davis, Jr., and Campbell raced to a near half-lap advantage over the rest of the field in the opening 20 laps of non-stop action, the battle for third through tenth was torrid throughout. Racing in seventh when the first caution appeared, Sapulpa, Oklahoma’s Kyle Clark sliced his way up to third over the closing rounds to round out the podium after starting 12th. Nebraska’s T.J. Artz picked off several positions over the final rounds as well to snare fourth with Arizona’s Dennis Gile rounding out the top five after an eventful set of final laps that shuffled the running order significantly. Davis, Jr., and Martin topped Saturday night’s heat race action with Davis, Jr., rallying from sixth to first on the opening lap to win the second qualifier before Campbell’s last-lap dramatics in the second qualifier.

  11. Mike Roach Rules Sport Modified Mayhem at DCRP with Brendon Gemmill, Dusty Witthuhn & Tathan Burkhart Scoring as Well by Lonnie Wheatley DODGE CITY, Kan. (August 18, 2018) – Woodward, Oklahoma’s Mike Roach became the first repeat winner of Dodge City Raceway Park’s $1,000-to-win Sport Modified Mayhem event by racing to victory lane in Saturday night’s fifth rendition of Mayhem atop the 3/8-mile clay oval. While Roach topped the 25-lapper from sixth starting position after initially topping the event in 2015, other Saturday night victors included Brendon Gemmill in IMCA Modifieds, Dusty Witthuhn in IMCA Stock Cars and Tathan Burkhart in IMCA Hobby Stocks. In the 25-lap Fifth Annual Sport Modified Mayhem feature event, Mike Roach needed just four laps to rally from sixth into second and then took the lead away from current IMCA Sport Modified track points leader and defending champion Jeff Kaup on the eighth circuit. Roach led the rest of the way to post his second consecutive victory at DCRP with Brandon Kenney in tow after taking the second position from Kaup on the ninth lap. After topping last year’s Sport Modified Mayhem card, Dustin Daniels fell two positions short of going back-to-back by filling out the podium in third with Kaup and Blaine Walt rounding out the top five. Wichita resident Brendon Gemmill added his second DCRP win of the year as well by charging to victory lane in the 20-lap IMCA Modified main event. After starting eighth, Gemmill worked his way up to second by the ninth round and then took the lead away from Jesse Hoskins on the 15th circuit en route to victory lane. Hoskins settled for runner-up honors with Troy Gemmill, Jesse Smith and Joel Lane rounding out the top five. After snapping a three-year winless streak atop DCRP clay last time out on July 27, Dusty Witthuhn made it two wins in a row by besting the 12-lap IMCA Stock Car feature. Witthuhn assumed the lead at the midway point after early leader Tyler Walker and Shannon Maughlin were forced pitside after an incident while dicing for the lead. Witthuhn raced on to the stripe ahead of Ondre Rexford and Chris Oliver. Hays’ Tathan Burkhart added his second IMCA Hobby Stock feature win of the season with a last-lap pass for glory in the 15-lap main event. Burkhart made his way forward from the ninth-starting position and after clawing his way to second by the 11th round, he rallied past Duane Wahrman on the final circuit to snare the win. Wahrman settled for second with Reagan Sellard, Matt O’Hair and Chad Kelley rounding out the top five. Championship chase racing action continues at Dodge City Raceway Park next Saturday night, August 25, with a full card of Precise Racing Products DCRP Sprint Cars, IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sport Modifeds, IMCA Stock Cars and IMCA Hobby Stocks.

  12. Jamie Ball Flawless At Hamilton County Speedway With Lucas Oil ASCS by Bryan Hulbert WEBSTER CITY, Iowa (August 18, 2018) After a horrid Southern Iowa Sprint Week, Jamie Ball came to Hamilton County Speedway with something to prove. Working 25 perfect laps ahead of Johnny Herrera, the Check Magnet Motorsports No. 5j rolled into Victory Lane for the first time in 2018 with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by Sawblade.com. "This whole year has been so hard. With torn up equipment and some bad luck, and too, I put myself in some bad spots but after the Knoxville Nationals we had, to come back and rebound like this. We needed it and this just proves my guys are the best. They gave me a great car and not only that, we got another win for Chick Magnet Motorsports," commented Jamie who is the 17th National Tour winner of the 2018 season. Ball's second career win with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by Sawblade.com, his Saturday night triumph is his first in full point paying National Tour competition. Previous too, Jamie won the August 4, 2016 show-up point preliminary A-Feature during the Knoxville 360 Nationals. Besting Harli White on the start, Jamie rolled the high side of the Hamilton County Speedway. Working through several cautions in the first ten laps as drivers snagged cones out of the infield while navigating the bottom line, each restart would have Johnny Herrera glued to the back bumper of Ball's No. 5j. Able to keep the wily veteran at bay, Jamie rolled into lapped traffic on the final lap as Herrera shaved over a second from Jamie's advantage, but would not have enough time as Ball crossed 1.292 seconds ahead of the Mesilla Valley Transportation No. 45x. Racing back and forth with Harli White through the first half of the A-Feature, Matt Covington would finally take hold of the final podium step with Blake Hahn working top-shelf to fourth after a multi lap race with Seth Bergman who held on to round out the top-five. Harli White ended up sixth with Wayne Johnson advancing five positions to seventh. Travis Rilat in eighth was trailed by Skylar Gee with Scott Bogucki in tenth. Next for the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by Sawblade.com is $5,000 to win, $400 to start at Missouri State Fair Speedway in Sedalia, Mo. on Sunday, August 19. Admission at Missouri State Fair Speedway is $20 with youth 13-17 admitted for $10. Kids 6-12 get in for $5 and five and under get in free. The event is promoted by Larry McCown and Randy Combs.

  13. O'Neil nets $10,002 with Grant Junghans Memorial triumph KANSAS CITY, Kan. (Aug. 17)--As drivers and fans alike celebrated the life of one of the most popular dirt track racers of all time, Friday's 3rd Annual Grant Junghans Memorial at the Lakeside Speedway gave the fans a night to remember.In the 32-lap feature co-sanctioned by the USMTS and USRA, Jake O'Neil came away with the biggest win of his career by holding off Johnny Scott-the toughest USMTS competitor so far this season.Lance Town took the initial lead in the race with Cade Dillard, Mark Schafman and Scott in tow.With four laps in the books, Scott snuck underneath Town to lead the fifth circuit with Dillard following into second one lap later.Lucas Schott, who won the inaugural Grant Junghans Memorial two years ago, slipped by Dillard the next time around with O'Neil following him into third on lap 8.Two laps later, O'Neil got around Schott in the first turn and then disposed of Scott in the next corner to snag the top spot away in just 10 laps after rolling off 13th on the 30-car grid.Scott never let O'Neil get away, and hounded him for the next 10 laps as the lead pair picked their way through heavy lapped traffic, finally finding a run off of turn four to lead lap 21.But it was a short-lived reign as O'Neil's line around the outside of a lapped car was quicker than Scott's inside line and O'Neil was back in front at the end of lap 22.Schott narrowed the gap between himself and the two leaders in the closing laps, but could not mount a challenge as O'Neil stayed clear of trouble and kept Scott behind him the final 10 laps to take home a $10,002 payday.Jake O'Neil celebrates after winning the 3rd Annual Grant Junghans Memorial powered by Spike Hardcore Energy on Friday, Aug. 17, a the Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan."You have no idea (what the money mean)," said O'Neil, who had to rent a truck to get up and down the road last week when his hauler broke down. "I don't even know what to say really."Grant was riding with us tonight. This was my number one race of the year I wanted to go to, even if I didn't race at all, and for sure the one I wanted to win. Coming here I didn't think we really had a chance but thank God I talked with Jimmy Owens on the phone and he gave me a few ideas, and I'll tell you what, that guy he builds a hell of a race car."Scott and Schott settled for second and third, respectively, with Terry Phillips and Dillard rounding out the top five.Tyler Wolff was sixth, defending race winner Rodney Sanders grinded out a seventh-place finish, Town held on for eighth, Stormy Scott nabbed the ninth spot and Dereck Ramirez claimed tenth place a the checkers.The USMTS Hunt for the Casey's Cup powered by Summit resumes Saturday night at the Salina Highbanks Speedway in Pryor Creek, Okla., for the 6th Annual Salute To Our Veterans presented by ARMI (Arkansas Myriad, Inc.) which is sponsoring free admission to veterans and active military with proper ID.The event will kick off with a pre-race military flyover by Paul Mackey and the Warbirds, and will feature the Smith All-Fab Back Row Challenge and a $500 Hard Charger Award.

  14. Donny Schatz Scores 16th Win of 2018 Season at River Cities and Adds a Late Model Win for Extra Measure GRAND FORKS, ND – August 17, 2018 – Donny Schatz took the lead on Lap 28, after Brad Sweet spun while leading, and held off 17th-starting Mark Dobmeier to win his 16th World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series Feature of 2018 and seventh in his last eight River Cities Speedway starts. Kerry Madsen completed the podium. Schatz also won the Late Model portion of the event. Sheldon Haudenschild won the Sears Craftsman Dash, earning the pole for the 40-lap Feature alongside recent Knoxville Nationals winner Brad Sweet. Haudenschild led the opening lap before a Red Flag for Logan Schuchart, Wade Nygaard and Brent Marks halted the action with one lap complete. All drivers were uninjured, but only Marks returned. Haudenschild continued to pace the field as he reached lapped traffic quickly around the ¼ bullring. Sweet stalked the Ohio native and took the lead on Lap 12 on the bottom, in heavy lapped traffic. Jordan Adams, who flipped earlier in the night but repaired his car to transfer out of the LCS, brought out the caution with 15 laps complete. A caution on the ensuing double-file restart, set up a single-file restart. Four laps later, Ian Madsen was involved in his second incident of the Feature, this time with too much damage to continue, bringing out Open Red conditions. When action resumed, Sheldon Haudenschild got shuffled back to fourth behind Kerry Madsen and Donny Schatz, who moved into second. Schatz set his eyes on Sweet and closed in as the duo raced through heavy traffic. As Schatz went high to challenge for the lead, Sweet entered low into turn one and lost the handle of his No.49, spinning to a stop. Schatz assumed the lead alongside Kerry Madsen. Schatz stormed away on the restart as the rest of the field, especially 17th-starting Mark Dobmeier, used every inch of real estate around the River Cities Speedway to advance forward. The final restart flew with four to go and by this time Dobmeier, the all-time winning Feature leader at River Cities Speedway, had worked his way to second, trailing Schatz. The capacity crowd was bubbling with anticipation of the finish as the two North Dakota natives led the field back to Green. Schatz pulled away in convincing fashion for his 16th Outlaw win of the year and seventh in his last eight starts at River Cities Speedway as Dobmeier finished second, picking up KSE Hard Charger honors for advancing 15 positions. “I’m just a lucky guy. To drive for the for the best guys in the pit area, the best owner in the country and the people that build these cars. They stand behind us through thick and then,” Schatz said of his Textron Off Road-sponsored crew, Tony Stewart and J & J Chassis. “Mark [Dobmeier] had a good run, I saw the 13 on the board and I thought, oh boy, here we go. He’s pretty good around here,” Schatz said of his fellow North Dakota native. “Lapped traffic definitely made your hair stand up tonight, we might not have been the best car tonight, but I’m glad we could get it done in Grand Forks,” Schatz, who also won the NLRA Late Model Feature, added in Victory Lane. The massive crowd at River Cities was pleased to see six-time winner at River Cities in 2018, Dobmeier finish second. “It’s great to have the crowd cheer like this, this is why we do it,” Dobmeier said. “I wish I didn’t use up all my tires at the beginning of the race, I wanted to start in the Dash and start in the top-ten and get that track position early, but we didn’t have it early, so I had to dig deep, I gave everything I had. Considering we got to second to this guy [pointing at Schatz], I feel pretty good about that run,” Dobmeier said with a smile. Kerry Madsen finished on the podium once again at River Cities, “I had a big plan on the double-file restart with six to go and it didn’t work and I lost a spot,” Madsen said with a grin before complimenting River Cities Speedway. “They do such a good job with the track here, I love coming to Grand Forks.” 14th-starting Daryn Pittman finished fourth with Brad Sweet charging back to fifth. Shane Stewart, who was involved in two accidents, recovered to finish sixth. David Gravel stayed out of trouble and finished seventh. 21st-starting Brent Marks recovered from a Lap One accident to finish eighth, Hunter Schuerenburg, who went to the work area running sixth early in the race, came back to ninth with local Jade Hastings, who brought out the Yellow with 6 laps left, completing the top-ten, the first of his World of Outlaws career. The World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series returns to action in West Fargo tomorrow night, Saturday, August 18, 2018 at Red River Valley Speedway.

  15. Davis Charges to Freedom Tour Glory in 81 Speedway Series Opener by Lonnie Wheatley WICHITA, Kan. (August 17, 2018) – Buckeye, Arizona’s Charles Davis, Jr., picked up right where he left off in USAC Southwest Sprint Cars “Freedom Tour” competition by parking the familiar, orange No. 50 entry in 81 Speedway’s beer garden after topping Friday night’s 30-lap feature event. Davis, Jr., assumed command on the sixth round then survived some late traffic to keep Chris Bonneau at bay as he collected his fifth career “Freedom Tour” triumph with the sixth rendition of the mini-series finally getting under way after the initial two rounds at I-30 Speedway and Creek County Speedway fell victim to rain. The victory for Davis, Jr., aboard the RSS Industries/MP Environmental Services Sprint Car was worth $2,500. After starting the feature in fourth, Davis, Jr., spent the initial rounds chasing pole starter Mike Martin until a potential third career 81 Speedway victory for “The Magic Man” slipped out of grasp when he spun in turn four to precipitate the first of just two cautions. Narrowly getting past Martin without significant damage, Davis, Jr., set sail and weathered the final caution five laps later. Ripping around the top side of the 3/8-mile clay oval, Davis, Jr., held nearly a half-straightaway advantage over fellow Arizona shoe Chris Bonneau with 81 Speedway ace Jeremy Campbell holding down the third position. The door nearly opened for Bonneau when Davis, Jr., approached traffic with seven laps remaining, but when “Chargin’ Charles” finally made his way through the trio of cars before Bonneau could capitalize it was game over before parking it in the beer garden again much to the delight of the crowd. Bonneau settled for runner-up honors with Campbell filling out the podium in third while Dennis Gile rallied from the 13th starting position to snare fourth after brake woes sidelined him in heat race action. Nebraska’s T.J. Artz rounded out the top five after opening the night with a heat race win. While Artz won the opening heat race, Bonneau topped the second heat race. The Sixth Annual USAC Southwest Sprint Cars “Freedom Tour” concludes with Saturday night’s $2,500-to-win min-series finale at 81 Speedway.
