    No tickets sold. No other live sports/playoffs on tv. The slate of Sunday movies was D-list at best.

    Mike I believe Josh mentioned it was the thickness of the gasket that put him over the limit.

    Well.....there is that....Have to get with HR on that criteria I guess.

    Its an IMCA claim procedure, nothing new....I could have phrased it different I guess for those unfamiliar with IMCA rules/procedures. The Factory Stocks were carb spacer from what Josh posted on FB.
  6. Texas Dirt Truck Series @ I-37 Speedway 5-16-20 By JM Hallas So most track owner/promoters would have woken up on race day, after 2+ inches of rain overnight, and thrown in the towel(see what I did there). Not I-37 Speedway. The track crew, and even a few drivers, stepped up and began pumping water and scraping mud to give drivers and fans a place to race. Everyone did yeoman's work to get the place in shape. My hat's off the all those that worked their butts off. Was it perfect, no, but it was super fast and tacky, with a little character added in for good measure. Added to the nights regular racing card of IMCA Modifieds, Late Models, USRA Limited Modifieds, Factory Stocks and Tuners, the Go -Karts made their first appearance along with the Texas Dirt Truck Series. Green Given Gold after Checkers It was another tough night for the IMCA Modified feature on a tacky, fast track that took four tries to get rolling. On the initial start, coming to green, Dillon Tindall tried to squeeze in the middle of three wide, careened off Bill Pittaway who tagged the front stretch wall and got rear-ended by Johnny Melancon, collecting Chris Carroll, Mike Morris and DJ Schroat. The next try saw Rick Green get turned sending Cody Leonard, Tindall, Morris and Jamie Campbell spinning/scrambling through the infield. Take three. Green and Ryan Doyon make contact coming to green with Doyon spinning to a stop in turn 1. Finally the survivors took the green with Green beating Doyon into turn 1 for the lead while Tindall, Leonard and Robert Liese sorted out. The green was short-lived as Carroll and Liese hooked bumpers and found the front stretch wall on lap 2. The restart was called off when the leader, Green, getting sent to the back for jumping the start. This put Doyon out front as the race resumed with Leonard trying to go low on Doyon for the lead. Lap after lap Leonard would try a mid-bottom run in the corners on Doyon who stuck to the top. Making a little ground each lap Leonard was able to get along side Doyon and by coming to halfway showing Leonard, Doyon, Green, Campbell and Liese in the top five. Once clear, Leonard was able to set sail and pull out to a full straightaway lead as the white flag waved going on to take the checkers. Under IMCA rules the top four are required to stop in the “claim area.” Leonard and Doyon went straight to tech, Green and Campbell stopped on the front stretch. After some discussion Leonard and Doyon were disqualified for not stopping, thus giving the victory to Green.(Liberty Hill) “I hate it for those guys,” said Green. “They're all stand up guys and told the truth. That's what I'm happy about. I actually didn't change a single thing from the heat to the feature. I just tried to stay up in the smoother part of the track. I wasn't always able to do that.” “Getting sent to the back kind of lit my fire. You could probably see it on the restart. I was splitting cars and coming to the front. I want to thank the track for doing the right thing and all the effort they put in to get the track ready to race.” Sponsors; Greens Construction, Carroll Construction, Nate Mare Graphics, GM Crate, BMS by Carroll Simpson Safety Products IMCA Modifieds 82 Rick Green, 129 Jamie Campbell, 77 Robert Liese jr., 15 Chris Carroll, 86 Dillon Tindall, 419 Johnny Melancon, 137 Bill Pittaway, 5 DJ Schroat, 55 Mike Morris, 12 Cody Leonard---dq(did not stop at claim area), 5r Ryan Doyon---dq(did not stop at claim area) Modified heats Heat 1; 5 Ryan Doyon, 15 Chris Carroll, 129 Jamie Campbell, 37 Bill Pittaway, 77 Robert Liese jr., 55 Mike Morris Heat 2; 82 Rick Green, 86 Dillon Tindall, 12 Cody Leonard, 419 Johnny Melancon, 5 DJ Schroat Rye Gets it Right for Limited Modified Money As green waved on the USRA Limited Modified feature it was Ryan Doyon, Allen Torres and Talon Minten almost three wide for the lead. A. Torres got the advantage coming off turn 2 to lead lap 1 chased by Doyon, Talon Minten, Steve Whiteaker and Brian Rye. Doyon tried low on A. Torres for the lead while Whiteaker got side by side with Minten for third. Doyon was able to get by A. Torres for the top spot on lap 3 with Whiteaker getting third from Minten bringing Rye along to fourth. At halfway it was Doyon, by a half straightaway over A. Torres, Whiteaker, Rye and Minten. Whiteaker then began to challenge A. Torres for second going side by side on lap 11. Up front Doyon was beginning to push out some fluid bringing out a caution on lap 14. A leaking radiator hose sent Doyon from the lead, to the pits. This handed A. Torres the point for the restart with Rye and Whiteaker staying side by side for second and Johnny Torres, from the back, getting past Minten for fourth. A. Torres would loop it on lap 16 from the lead with everyone avoiding contact. This put Rye out front with Whiteaker and J. Torres on his tail. With Whiteaker and J. Torres battling, Rye got a little breathing room. Coming to two to go Whiteaker got clear of J. Torres and got a run on Rye on the final lap. Whiteaker got to his bumper in turn 3, but Rye(Corpus Christi) was able to hang on to capture the victory. “I got lucky,” replied Rye. “That 5 car(Doyon) was gone. I don't know what happened him, he broke and left the track. After that I just had to get around two other guys and hang on.” “Stevie(Whiteaker) is always good everywhere he goes. I didn't think I'd be able to get around him. The track was unpredictable after all the rain and some of the ruts. I could feel him right there on the last lap. I kind of slowed down the last laps to make sure I kept my car under control. I'm sure that let him get closer.” “I just got this new IRP car over the winter and only run it a couple times. I really have to thank Blake and Nick from K&H Shocks. They built some shocks for me this week. I talked to both after the heat race and they gave me some advise for changes I needed.

By halfway Okruhlik had a half lap lead over Landon Sowder and Howie Marcx. Okruhlik(San Antonio) went on to the uncontested win. “After last week I was bound and determined to win,” joked Okruhlik. “We did change a bunch of stuff on the car thinking those other guys would be racing tonight. It was faster than it was last week.” “My original plan was not to go out a lap the field, but make it close. I had the car so tight that if I slowed down it wouldn't turn. I had to keep it going to keep from hitting the wall.

Bernal gave Doyon a look high as the top three quickly crept away. Doyon held off Bernal and started to pressure Rust for the lead. Doyon was able to get under Rust for the point on lap 5. At the mid-point it was Doyon, Rust, Bernal, Gaudette and Parker. Rust would spin on lap 6 falling to the back of the field. The only caution came on lap 9 for debris. This set up a green-checker finish that saw Doyon(LaCoste) get away while Gaudette and defending champ, Larry Baggett ran door to door for third. Doyon gave himself a birthday present with the win and trophy. “It took some patience tonight,” said Doyon. “With all the rain the track was a little rutty. Just patience, hitting my marks and running my own race. I didn't really have a game plan going in. I usually just like to feel what the track has and see where the faster groove is. Everyone raced me clean, it was fun.” “I felt good about the line I was running. I stayed pretty much on the bottom and knew if someone would have to try to drive around. It was was pretty tough up there with the ruts. I figured I was in the preferred line.” “Running different classes doesn't transfer much since theyre so different, but helps me find the lines to run. After running the Modified everything seems to slow down in the other cars.” Sponsors; Longs Racing Engines, 3-D Landscaping, Brown Chevrolet, Alamo Truck Accessories, ARTS Chassis Texas Dirt Truck Series 43 Ryan Doyon, 28 Russ Parker, 05 Daniel Gaudette, 3 Larry Baggett, 81 Tony Bernal, 5 Russell Rust TDTS heat; 43 Ryan Doyon, 5 Russell Rust, 81 Tony Bernal, 05 Daniel Gaudette, 3 Larry Baggett, 28 Russ Parker Hessong Hot in Factory Stock The scheduled 20-lap USRA Factory Stock feature was as tough as the Modifieds with multiple starts before finally getting under way. As racing began it was GW Hessong, Johnny Westfall and Josh Sewell three wide for the lead with Hessong getting the position. Westfall, Sewell, Shannon Maurer and Michael Keylich sorted out in line. Lap 3 saw Ryan Carlucci, Robert Lyon and Johnny Johnson tangle in turn 2 for a yellow. Hessong and Westfall got away on green with M. Keylich taking fourth from Maurer leaving him side by side with Aaron Leddy for sixth. Sewell closed back up on the lead duo getting along side Westfall for second before caution on lap 8 for Cameron Starry and Mike Lyon getting together in turn 2. Officials cut the race to 12-laps on time. Hessong had Sewell looking low on the restart as Cody Leonard got around M. Keylich for fourth. Jennifer Kidd brought out a red when her car erupted in flames after blowing a motor. On the green, white, checker restart Hessong inched ahead while Sewell, Westfall and Leonard tried three wide for second. Hessong(Edna) would back up last weeks win without a challenge. “It's rolling pretty good,” exclaimed Hessong. “I can't imagine winning two in a row here because I haven't won a race my entire career here. It feels pretty good. It was a lot of off season work. We redid the whole car. We picked up a few things running the USMTS show, then got these new club20 Shocks for last race. They made the car come alive.” “Josh(Sewell) and I have raced together before. We've had our moments of brilliance and have had it out here and there. We've got it together now. We race well together. Sitting up front you're basically a sitting duck and don't know where they're at. I was pretty nervous when I saw him on the inside. I moved down a little and was pacing myself better. I don't know how close he was at the end, but we pulled it off.” “All those cautions concerned me. It bunches the field back up and if you make one slip, anything can happen. It kills my momentum.” Sponsors; Magnum Services LP/ Cord Beard out of Edna, Tx.

As the top three broke away, Johnny Ervin took fifth from Borlace. Just past halfway McCall caught Schoenbaum in traffic and was putting some pressure on him. Dylan Kowalik had trouble in turn 3 bringing out the only caution. Back to green and McCall got side by side with Schoenbaum while Cates, Ada. Tracy and Ervin were three wide for third. McCall took over the lead on lap 16, but Scheonbaum stayed hot on his heels. With two to go, Ervin, Borlace and Ada. Tracy were swapping spots nearly turn for turn. As the white flag waved Schoenbaum made a last charge at McCall for the win. In between turns 3-4 the two made a little contact, then again coming off turn 4. Schoenbaum, on the inside, had the run coming towards the checkers. Again they made contact turning Schoenbaum sideways at the line. After the checkers Schoenbaum(San Antonio) made contact with the front stretch but emerged uninjured to a cheering crowd.

  22. SPRINT CAR BANDITS “PANHANDLE 25” at MONARCH SAT. MAY 9 >Plus Huge triple header for 3 USRA divisions Wichita Falls, TX (5/1/20) - Race fans and teams that have been to the new Monarch Motor Speedway (west side of Wichita Falls) know that it features incredible dirt track racing with state-of-the-art facilities. And for the second straight year, a blockbuster event is taking place at the ¼ mile ultra-fast speed plant featuring some of the best dirt track racers in the region with the running of the Sprint Car Bandits® (SCB) “PANHANDLE 25” 360C.I. Shootout, paying $2,000 to win and $300/start. Plus the $1,000 to win Limited Modified Madness, $1,000 to win Factory Stock Fracas and $500 to win Tuners Brawl will all be taking place on this one special night - Saturday, May 9th at 7pm! Note that the Sprint Cars will be racing 1st or 2nd division our for the feature events. :30 Second Rewind from the 2019 SCB Monarch event: An unforgettable night of wild in-your-face action would take place after overnight storms made for a total slurp-fest on the racing surface with elbows-up high speed drama taking place in every division all night long. The SCB feature event saw Will Eggimann (2019 SCB series champion) wrestle the lead away from John Carney II and Tim Crawley. Eggimann would lead til the 2-to-go flags were waved when a lapped car got crossed up and started flipping in front of the lead pack, resulting in Eggimann’s top wing being torn off the car. During the red, with just two laps to go, Eggimann and team decided it was not a safe idea to restart the event sans top wing leading the field…so he went pit-side and John Carney II would take home the $2,000 winners prize, with Harli White driving the wheels off her #17w sprinter coming from 21st to 2nd after a first-lap skirmish.

USRA Tuner car rules are in effect and USRA points will be awarded. Drivers not holding a USRA license can purchase a temp license upon their arrival for $10. $30 to any non-qualifier or non-starter. The SCB series has a unique rules package that allows teams to use their current equipment (especially in the engine compartment) yet curbing nightly tire expense...which helps equalize the competition with teams of varying budget sizes. The SCB “20° wing angle rule” also helps by freeing up the cars to be able to pass easier in many cases that also helps reduce excess tire and engine wear. Our ‘one rear tire all night long’ rule has not only saved racers thousands of dollars over the past four years, but to date, we’ve yet to have one tire fail (blow) due to excess tire wear in any feature race we’ve held. All these small, yet effective changes, have been accomplished without the racers having to purchase something out of the ordinary. And we essentially haven’t changed the rules since the inception of the series at the end of 2015. And let’s face it, since the events of 9/11/2001 – and now as of late, a lot of the economics of the sport of dirt track racing have changed drastically (especially the cost of travel, track insurance, general crowd sizes, cost of racing components), yet there really hasn’t been much being done on a nationwide level to help counteract those economic impacts. We aren’t trying to say we’ve ‘fixed’ all those impacts, but at least we are doing something to help curb racer expenses – and it’s working. Our rules package certainly has made for exciting and unpredictable racing outcomes – as there were 18 different feature winners in the past 28 series events! Click www.SprintCarBandits.com for the latest in series news SCB tour is headed to next. You can also reach the SCB on Facebook, at www.Facebook.com/SprintCarBandits . We look forward to seeing you Saturday, May 9th when the Sprint Car Bandits 360C.I. “PANHANDLE 25” Sprint Shootout returns to Monarch Motor Speedway in Wichita Falls with high-powered winged Sprint Cars battling on the racy 1/4 mile speed plant, paired with an unforgettable night of racing in the Monarch USRA Divisions! -Darin
