    NASCAR has always been fair game on this site as long as the rest of the usual LSSZ standards are followed. 1) NASCAR is a billion dollar corporation that markets ad space to other corporations. Car manufacturers, major sponsors and, increasingly, the government all dictate to NASCAR how their corporation will be run and have a major impact on rules and scheduling as a result. Car manufacturers need winning seasons and NASCAR provides rules that insures that scenario is fulfilled. Sponsors need exposure and NASCAR arranges things to make sure sponsors are happy. The government sees to it that it's environmental policies are incorporated into the show - think ethanol, no alcohol or tobacco sponsors, etc. 2) NASCAR charges short track promoters/owners stiff sanctioning fees as well as forcing anyone racing or participating as an official, a racer or crew member to pay expensive NASCAR membership fees. In return, the track got the right to use the NASCAR name and sometimes one of their corporate sponsors would kick in something tangible like paint for the bleachers or a scoreboard that never worked right, etc. Frankly, it was a bad deal for most tracks which is why you rarely see a NASCAR-sanctioned short track any longer. Local competitors and officials got NASCAR insurance that was only effective after your private insurance was exhausted. Not much better than any insurance that tracks routinely obtain on their own. When I was NASCAR Chief Steward at San Antonio Speedway back in the 90s, I had to pay for an expensive NASCAR Competition as did every participant whether driver and crew and official. 3) NASCAR hurt short tracks by scheduling some of their races on Friday (trucks, etc) and Saturday evenings, traditional short track racing nights. Tracks all over the country took a loss if they scheduled on a NASCAR night event or just stopped racing on NASCAR nights. 4) With all their money and resources, NASCAR could have done a whole lot to actually help short track racing, but chose not to. Instead they collected lots of money from tracks gullible enough to believe a NASCAR sanction would guarantee success. I'm sure with all the brain power in the NASCAR board room, programs could be initiated that would actually benefit local short track racing, whether dirt or asphalt. So, while I do not allow inflammatory posts concerning Texas tracks/series or their officials or fellow racers or local sponsors, I do allow posts that criticize NASCAR as long as it's civil and reasonable. If that makes me a hypocrite, so be it... Nick
  2. Donny Schatz Hits 20-Win Mark for Sixth Consecutive Season with Dodge City Victory DODGE CITY, KS – October 20, 2018 – Donny Schatz passed Ian Madsen on Lap 9 in lapped traffic and held off Madsen’s late race surge to win his 20th World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series of 2018, Saturday at Dodge City Raceway Park. Madsen, in his first visit to Dodge City, settled for second with Daryn Pittman completing the podium. Ian Madsen set a new Dodge City track record in Qualifying, won his Heat and the Sears Craftsman Dash to earn the pole for the 30-lap Feature. Madsen got a strong initial start to lead the opening lap. The Australian, who will be crowned as the 2018 Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year at the years end, reached lapped traffic by the fourth circuit on the lightning-fast racing surface. Madsen cleared the first slower car, but was held up by local Steven Richardson, allowing Schatz to close the gap. Madsen remained behind Richardson as Schatz got a strong run entering turn one to take the lead down the backstretch on the ninth circuit. Schatz officially led the ninth lap before the caution flew for third-place running Sheldon Haudenschild. Haudenschild, who was also making his Dodge City debut, was able to return at the rear of the field. The ensuing double-file restart saw Schatz and Madsen race away from the field, establishing themselves as the class of the field. Similar to Madsen early in the race, Schatz’ pace slowed dramatically when he reached lapped traffic. Madsen closed in on the nine-time Series Champion, and took a look underneath for the lead, but couldn’t complete the pass. A sputtering Adam Gullion brought out the caution with 18 laps complete, giving the leaders a clear track. Two laps later, Jade Hastings blew up, setting up a ten-lap sprint to the finish. Schatz and Madsen again pulled away from the field, as Kasey Kahne Racing teammates Daryn Pittman and Brad Sweet jockeyed for third. Schatz reached traffic and again was forced to slow his pace on the tacky racing surface. Madsen closed in once again but came up .279 short, as Schatz took the Checkered Flag for the 20th time in 2018. When asked about the difficulties of lapped traffic, Schatz said with a smile, “It’s how I got the lead and it’s how I almost lost it. They didn’t do anything wrong, but it was definitely tough to get by them.” The win was Schatz and his Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing No.15 team 20th win of the year, marking the sixth consecutive season they’ve reached that total. “It’s a testament to how great this team is, but we’re never satisfied. 20 wins isn’t enough, 40 wins isn’t enough, that’s what makes this team so great,” Schatz said about reaching the 20-win plateau. “It’s a privilege to be able to drive for this great team against the greatest drivers in the world at the nicest facilities in the country,” Schatz said as a dual-compliment to the World of Outlaws competition and Dodge City Raceway Park. Ian Madsen was obviously disappointed to not finish the job but remained in good spirits. “It was a great night for this KCP team, I had a lot of family and friends here tonight and our car owner was here as well, so it was great to have a good finish for all of them. I just read lapped traffic wrong, hopefully we can pick up a win here in the last two weeks,” Madsen said. Daryn Pittman, fresh off his Lakeside victory a night ago, completed the podium and continued his recent hot streak. “We’re really happy where this team is right now, it’s a shame the year is coming to an end,” Pittman said next to his Ionomy-sponsored KKR No.9. Brad Sweet and 12th-starting Brian Brown completed the top-five. Sam Hafertepe Jr. earned KSE Hard Charger honors, coming from last to 15th. A chilly evening and good air had Dodge City Raceway Park in unchartered territory as 22 of the 23 cars signed in broke the 13-year-old track record. Ian Madsen’s Quick Time was nearly a half-second quicker than the existing fastest lap. The World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series has two weekends left in its 40th Anniversary Season. Next weekend, the Series heads back to Central Pennsylvania for the Tuscarora 50 at Port Royal Speedway. Saturday’s 50-lap Feature will pay $51,000 to the winner. Following that, the Outlaws will conclude the year at the World Finals presented by Can-Am at The Dirt Track at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

  3. Daryn Pittman Convincingly Scores 9th Win of 2018 in FVP Platinum Battery Shootout at Lakeside Speedway KANSAS CITY, KS – October 19, 2018 – Daryn Pittman scored his ninth World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series Feature win of the season in convincing fashion, leading every lap of the FVP Platinum Battery Shootout at Lakeside Speedway. Donny Schatz extended his points lead with a runner-up finish and Sheldon Haudenschild completed the podium. It was Pittman’s 81st career World of Outlaws win and second at Lakeside with his prior triumph coming 15 years ago in 2003. Pittman won the Sears Craftsman Dash to earn the pole for the 30-lap Feature, alongside Logan Schuchart. Pittman held off an early charge from Schuchart to take command of the field. A fast racing surface allowed Pittman to reach lapped traffic on Lap 8. The Oklahoma veteran negotiated traffic well, before the lone caution flag of the Feature fell on Lap 12 as heartbreak struck second-place running Logan Schuchart. Schuchart smoked down the frontstretch before coming to stop in turn one, ending his evening. Sheldon Haudenschild assumed second place alongside Pittman with Jason Sides and Donny Schatz in row two of the double-file restart. Pittman powered away from the field with a strong restart as Haudenschild and Schatz waged war for the second spot with the nine-time and defending Series Champion taking the position for good on Lap 16. Schatz narrowed Pittman’s lead, but the Kasey Kahne Racing, Ionomy-sponsored No.9 remained proficient through traffic. The best battle on the race track was between Jason Sides, Brad Sweet and Joey Saldana, aboard the Jason Johnson Racing No.41, as the trio utilized the entire the Lakeside Speedway racing surface battling for the fifth position. Back up front, Schatz continued to close in on Pittman, but time was running out. With five laps remaining, Pittman maintained good speed on the cushion as Schatz was a car-length lower than him, desperately trying to reel him in. Pittman stayed strong up top and rode the cushion to victory, a mere .586 seconds ahead of Schatz. “This place is always been a track I’ve enjoyed coming to. If your car is good, you can get by guys and as a racer that’s all you can ask for,” Pittman said speaking fondly of Lakeside Speedway. “Hats off to my guys, my car was great. It was a lot of fun, lapped traffic was tight, but I could move around and maintain speed everywhere. Man, these wins are hard to come by. I’ve been doing this a long time and they never get easier,” Pittman said with a smile next to his KKR No.9. Schatz settled for second and kept things simple after the race, “That’s the way it goes sometimes. We got ourselves up there to compete for the win but didn’t get it. We’ll try again tomorrow.” In his second career Lakeside appearance, Sheldon Haudenschild landed on the podium for the second consecutive year, finishing third. “The 9 and 15 were good, I like this place, it’s wide and fast. It’s definitely cool to have Ricky [Stenhouse Jr.] here and a couple of the NASCAR boys, we’ll try again tomorrow,” Haudenschild said next to his NOS Energy Drink sponsored Stenhouse Jr-Marshall No.17. Shane Stewart was strong all night and finished fourth with Joey Saldana finishing fifth in his debut aboard the JJR No.41. Brad Sweet, Jason Sides, Ian Madsen, Kraig Kinser and Brent Marks completed the all-Outlaw top-ten. Brock Zearfoss, in his Lakeside debut, earned KSE Hard Charger honors coming from the LCS to finish 11th. The World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series continues its 40th Anniversary Season tomorrow with a return to Dodge City Raceway Park in Dodge City, KS.

  6. All Star Champ Reutzel Chases Trophy Cup Title this Weekend CLUTE, Texas (October 18, 2018) – The 2018 season has already been a stellar one for Clute, TX, native Aaron Reutzel. Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team secured the All Star Circuit of Champions title less than two weekends ago. Now, Reutzel is taking to the left coast for the weekend to pursue the 25th Annual Trophy Cup title at Tulare, California’s Thunderbowl Raceway. Reutzel takes the wheel of Willie Kahne’s No. 51 entry for the noted event that takes place over three nights beginning on Thursday. Thunderbowl Raceway has proven to be one of Reutzel’s favorites, as he opened this season with his first career World of Outlaws feature win in just the third night of competition of the newly-formed BRM No. 87 Folkens Brothers Trucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X team. It proved to be a sign of things to come, as Reutzel and the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment crew have since rolled on to 11 overall wins and the All Star Circuit of Champions title. After winning the Peter Murphy Classic in his maiden voyage at Thunderbowl Raceway in 2015, Reutzel raced to a top-ten finish in his first Trophy Cup outing in 2016. Reutzel comes off of another strong World of Outlaws effort last weekend aboard the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspensions entry at Ohio’s Eldora Speedway. After a Jacksonville rainout on Friday, Reutzel timed in sixth on Sunday at Eldora and raced to a third-place finish in heat race action to earn the 11th starting position for the main event. “I didn’t feel like we qualified as well as we should have,” Reutzel said of the early portion of the night. After losing a pair of positions early in the feature, Reutzel climbed back up to ninth before wall contact brought an early end to the evening. “We were pretty good in the feature, but we weren’t good enough to pass cars,” Reutzel explains. “We just couldn’t make a good run in the middle. I finally tried to make a big slider for ninth and just got into the fence and that was our night.” Reutzel looks to make it an even dozen wins or more this weekend in Trophy Cup competition at the Thunderbowl Raceway. 2018 Quick Stats: 69 races, 11 wins, 27 top-fives, 39 top-tens. Next Up: 25th Annual Trophy Cup at Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, CA, on Thursday through Saturday.
