  1. POWRi West Midgets Soar into Airport Raceway for Midget Roundup by Lonnie Wheatley TULSA, Okla. (May 22, 2018) – A Memorial Day weekend double is on tap for the Lucas Oil POWRi West Midget League presented by Executive Concrete NWA as the series takes to Garden City, Kansas’ Airport Raceway for this weekend’s “Midget Roundup”. The POWRi West Midget ranks will take on the Rocky Mountain Midget Racing Association (RMMRA) in the TBJ Promotions event atop the racy, 1/5-mile clay oval with the Saturday portion offering up a $1,200 winner’s share and then Sunday’s finale paying $2,000 to the winner. Springfield, Missouri’s Kory Schudy leads the way into the weekend after posting his first win of the year in the series most recent event at Tulsa’s Port City Raceway on May 12. With the triumph, Schudy became the series sixth different winner of the season through seven events thus far. Schudy reigns as a defending champion of the Airport Raceway “Midget Roundup”, besting a stellar field of 40 Midgets in last year’s finale after Oklahoma’s Matt Moore topped the opening round. Schudy holds a 490-point edge over Bixby, Oklahoma’s Cannon McIntosh with Sand Springs, Oklahoma’s Hank Davis and Broken Arrow, Oklahoma’s Hannah Adair next on the point charts with Illinois shoe Zach Daum rounding out the early top five. Red Dirt Raceway winner Ace McCarthy (Tahlequah, OK) goes into the weekend sixth in points with defending series champion Grady Chandler (Edmond, OK), Wesley Smith (Nixa, MO), Brendon Wiseley (Sand Springs, OK) and Karter Sarff (Mason City, IL) also among the top ten. Along with Schudy and McCarthy, other 2018 POWRi West winners thus far include Jonathan Beason, Logan Seavey, Tanner Carrick and Christopher Bell, who swept the season-opening double in Oklahoma City. It will mark the first round of competition for Colorado’s RMMRA ranks after last weekend’s scheduled season opener fell victim to rain.

  2. Breaking Out of the Gates Quickly – DCRP Championship Round Two on Saturday by Lonnie Wheatley DODGE CITY, Kan. (May 18, 2018) – Bursting out of the gates quickly is a key component to putting together a championship season at Dodge City Raceway Park. And after a rousing opening night on May 5, championship round two is set for Saturday night with the $750-to-win Sixth Annual Modified Stampede headlining the card that also includes Precise Racing Products DCRP Sprint Cars, IMCA Sport Modifieds, IMCA Stock Cars and IMCA Hobby Stocks. Brian Herbert, Kevin Gray, Jeff Kaup, Troy Burkhart and Duane Wahrman broke out the quickest in their respective divisions with opening night wins just two weeks ago. While an opening night win isn’t imperative on the road to the title, it certainly doesn’t hurt as two of last year’s eventual five champions won on opening night including Jeff Kaup and Angel Munoz. And finishing among the top five in the opener seems to be a strong indicator as to potential championship contenders with 23 of 27 champions (85.2%) over the past six years finishing among the top five in the opening round of competition. Just one champion last year finished outside the top five with IMCA Modified champ Clay Sellard finishing sixth. Tickets for Saturday’s Sixth Annual Modified Stampede are just $15 for adults while children 11 and under are admitted free when accompanied by an adult. Pit passes are $30. Racing action is set to get under way at 7:30 p.m. Precise Racing Products DCRP Sprint Cars: Brian Herbert picked off his second opening night over the last three years by topping the May 5 event after Tyler Knight surrendered the point when a left front tire went sailing. Herbert was seventh in points last year while two-time and defending champ Taylor Velasquez opened the season with a fourth-place run. Feature Winners: Brian Herbert 1. Current Top Ten in Points: 1. Brian Herbert 150, 2. Ray Seemann 145, 3. J.D. Johnson 141, 4. Taylor Velasquez 138, 5. Tracey Hill 135, 6. Ty Williams 132, 7. Luke Cranston 129, 8. Koby Walters 126, 9. Steven Richardson 123, 10. Jordan Knight 120. IMCA Modifieds: Fourth in last year’s points, Ulysses’ Kevin Gray opened the season in triumphant fashion ahead of R.C. Whitwell and Joel Lane. Gray looks to make it two in a row in Saturday’s Modified Stampede after notching his first DCRP score since August of 2015. Feature Winners: Kevin Gray 1. Current Top Ten in Points: 1. Kevin Gray 150, 2. R.C. Whitwell 145, 3. Joel Lane 141, 4. Kale Beavers 138, 5. Jack Kirchoff 135, 6. Nick Link 132, 7. William Nusser 129, 8. Mike Lunow 126, 9. Rick Taylor 123, 10. Travis Simmons 120. IMCA Sport Modifieds: Woodward’s Jeff Kaup opened last year with a win en route to his fourth DCRP championship over the last five years and picked up another opening night win on May 5. Kaup has 17 DCRP wins to his credit since the 2012 season. Feature Winners: Jeff Kaup 1. Current Top Ten in Points: 1. Jeff Kaup 150, 2. Toby Witthuhn 145, 3. Brian May 141, 4.

IMCA Stock Cars: Showing no rust from an extended stay away from the driver’s seat, Hays’ Troy Burkhart fought off Ron Hartman and Shannon Maughlin to win the May 5 opener. Feature Winners: Troy Burkhart 1. Current Top Ten in Points: 1. Troy Burkhart 150, 2. Ron Hartman 145, 3. Shannon Maughlin 141, 4. Dusty Witthuhn 138, 5. Travis Baird 135, 6. Ondre Rexford 132, 7. Steve Bunk 129, 8. Will Bauer 126, 9. Marlin Hogie 123, 10. Tyler Walker 120. IMCA Hobby Stocks: Duane Wahrman finished off the 2017 season in victory lane and opened up 2018 the same way by taking the checkered flag ahead of defending champ Reagan Sellard. Wahrman looks to climb one spot higher in the final tally after falling just ten points shy of Sellard in the 2017 chase. Feature Winners: Duane Wahrman 1. Current Top Ten in Points: 1. Duane Wahrman 150, 2. Reagan Sellard 145, 3. Dan Rogers 141, 4. Tathan Burkhart 138, 5. Matt O’Hair 135, 6. Chad Kelley 132, 7. Brett Copeland 129, 8. Mike Davis 126, 9. Tom Reed 123, 10.

  3. Wisconsin Weekend for Reutzel after another WoO Podium CLUTE, Texas (May 16, 2018) – Aaron Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team will venture to another pair of tracks for the first time this weekend as All Star Circuit of Champions competition fires back into action. It will be a Wisconsin weekend for the Clute, TX, racer as he takes the All Star points lead into Saturday’s card at the Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds before moving on to Sun Prairie’s Angell Park Speedway on Sundaynight. After capturing his first All Star win in the series most recent outing at Hartford, Ohio’s Sharon Speedway on May 5, Reutzel took in last weekend’s three-race set of World of Outlaws competition in Ohio and Indiana. And, the Folkens Brothers Tucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X Sprint Car team made its presence known, leading a portion of Friday’s #LetRaceTwo event at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio, before posting a podium finish on Saturday night and then rounding out the weekend at Haubstadt, Indiana’s Tri-State Speedway on Sunday. The #LetsRaceTwo weekend started with Reutzel timing in eighth among Friday’s 37-car field and then landing a spot in the Dash with a runner-up heat race finish. “We drew late and were still able to lay down a good lap,” the driver of the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment entry says. “Then we were really good in the Dash and picked up a couple of positions after drawing the eight.” Starting sixth in the feature, Reutzel was on the move as he looked for his second World of Outlaws win of the season aboard the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspensions machine. Reutzel rallied past both Donny Schatz and early leader Jac Haudenschild to take command on the 12th round only to get into the turn one wall the next time around to bring an early end to the strong run. “We got right up there in the feature, I kinda bounced off the wall once and it gave us a really good run,” Reutzel recalls. “Then I got the lead and got a little too confident one time, it sucked me in and there was no saving it.” While Reutzel raced into the lead quickly, he knew there was little time to cruise atop the Eldora high-banked oval. “I felt like Donny was just cruising, I was trying to run off from him while I could and it didn’t work out,” Reutzel explains. With a new car in place for Saturday’s #LetsRaceTwo finale at Eldora, Reutzel timed in fourth and then won his heat race before finishing fourth in the Dash. Reutzel then raced to a solid third-place finish in the feature to finish off the Eldora portion of the weekend. “Comparing the car we had Friday night to what we had on Saturday night, we just weren’t as good,” Reutzel explains. “We were just a third-place car. With the track smooth and dead slick, we were too loose.” Reutzel and the BRM team wrapped up the weekend on Sunday night at Haubstadt’s Tri-State Speedway with a 24th-place feature finish. Reutzel started the night strong by qualifying third among his group but a heat race infraction proved costly. “They said I jumped the start and put us back a row, that pretty much ruined our night,” Reutzel said. He went on to win the “B” Main before making an early exit in the feature. “We were good in the B, but the motor got a little hot and we didn’t have much time to fix it,” Reutzel recalls. “It was still doing the same thing in the feature so we just pulled in.” Points are back on the line in All Star action this weekend as Reutzel gets his first look at a pair of Wisconsin tracks. 2018 Quick Stats: 18 races, 2 wins, 7 top-fives, 9 top-tens. Up Next: All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars at the Plymouth (WI) Dirt Track-Sheboygan County Fairgrounds on Saturday and then Angell Park Speedway (Sun Prairie, WI) on Sunday.

  4. Sixth Annual Modified Stampede Saturday at DCRP by Lonnie Wheatley, DODGE CITY, Kan. (May 14, 2018) – The stampede is on! After getting pushed back by bad weather last month, the Sixth Annual Modified Stampede will hit the track at Dodge City Raceway Park this Saturday night, May 19. In addition to a $750-to-win IMCA Modified feature, Saturday night’s action will also include a full card of championship chase action featuring the Precise Racing Products DCRP Sprint Cars, IMCA Sport Modifieds, IMCA Stock Cars and IMC Hobby Stocks with racing action going green at 7:30 p.m. Woodward, Oklahoma’s Cole Traugott is the reigning Modified Stampede champion, racing to his second consecutive event win last year ahead of defending track champion Clay Sellard and Randy Wilson. While Traugott has a pair of Modified Stampede victories to his credit, other past event winners include David Murray (2015 and both nights in 2013) and Brendon Gemmill (2014). Traugott and Larned’s William Nusser were the only drivers to post multiple Modified wins in ten total events last year. Ulysses’ Kevin Gray bested the Modified ranks in the recent DCRP season opener on Saturday night, May 5, fending off a stout field of contenders that included Arizona’s R.C. Whitwell, Joel Lane, Kale Beavers, Jack Kirchoff and 2016 track champion Nick Link among others to post his first win since the 2015 season. Other opening night winners jumping out to early point leads included Brian Herbert in the DCRP Sprint Cars, Jeff Kaup in IMCA Sport Modifieds, Troy Burkhart in IMCA Stock Cars and Duane Wahrman in IMCA Hobby Stocks.

  5. Schudy Scores POWRi West Win at Port City Lonnie Wheatley, TULSA, Okla. (May 12, 2018) – Springfield, Missouri’s Kory Schudy padded his Lucas Oil POWRi West Midget League presented by Executive Concrete NWA points lead by racing to victory lane in Saturday night’s 25-lap feature atop the 1/8-mile Port City Raceway. Schudy assumed the point when early leader Jonathan Beason surrendered the lead after a mid-race red flag and then denied Matt Sherrell’s advances over the final rounds to secure the win aboard the Empire Energy/Sprint Lawn Care No. 28 Boss Chassis entry. While Schudy led the field to the green flag from the pole position, Beason battled into the lead in short order with his sights set on a second consecutive POWRi West Sooner Series win after racing to victory lane at Oklahoma City’s I-44 Riverside Speedway on April 28. But, Beason’s Hard Eight mount soon started billowing heavy smoke and he was unable to continue after a red flag flew for a multi-car scrum in turn two just past the midway point that included Ace McCarthy, Brendon Wiseley and Kyle Clark. Schudy took over and fought off Sherrell on another pair of restarts along the way to take the win with Sherrell settling for runner-up honors. “I thought I might have something for him (Beason) but then the smoke got so heavy that I laid back a little bit,” Schudy said of the early going as he tried to chase down Beason. Texas shoe Kade Taylor filled out the podium in third after apparent third-place finisher Grady Chandler was light at the scales with Blake Edwards rallying from the tail of the field to finish fourth after accepting a front-row challenge for being the evening’s high point driver. Hank Davis rounded out the top five. Schudy, Beason and McCarthy topped heat race action for the 21-car field. In addition to Lucas Oil and Executive Concrete NWA, additional POWRi West Midget League supporting sponsors include Two-Eight Drilling, American Discount Auto Care, R&M Race Trailer, A1 Machine, Rod End Supply, Pyrotech, Esslinger Engineering and MyChron Tom/AIM. The POWRi West Midget League returns to action on Saturday and Sunday, May 26-27, at Garden City, Kansas’ Airport Raceway.

  6. World of Outlaws Triple for Reutzel after Racking Up First All Star Win by Lonnie Wheatley CLUTE, Texas (May 11, 2018) – Aaron Reutzel had already picked up his first career World of Outlaws feature win to get the season under way. It didn’t take much longer for Reutzel and Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team to snare a first career All Star Circuit of Champions feature win with a triumph in last Saturday night’s 30-lap feature at Hartford, Ohio’s Sharon Speedway. Following a Friday night rainout at Lernerville Speedway, the Saturday score put Reutzel atop the All Star championship point charts. “It’s nice to get these first wins out of the way early,” Reutzel says. “That way I don’t have to think about that any more when we get to the track.” With the All Stars idle this weekend, Reutzel will take in three nights of World of Outlaws competition including both nights of the WoO portion of Eldora Speedway’s #letsracetwo event on Friday and Saturday before moving on to Haubstadt, Indiana’s Tri-State Speedway on Sunday night. While last Saturday resulted in Reutzel’s second win of the year, the evening started in uncharacteristic fashion for the driver of the Folkens Brothers Tucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X Sprint Car. “The night started out different,” Reutzel recalls. “We usually start out fast, but we weren’t very good in hot laps and didn’t time all that well.” In this case though, qualifying third among his group worked to the advantage of the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment team. “It put us on the front row of the heat and we were able to stay there,” Reutzel says. “Then Carson drew us the pole of the Dash.” Reutzel took full advantage of his young son’s fortuitous draw despite a lack of brakes, winning the Dash to earn the pole position for the feature aboard the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspensions machine. “We were almost late for the Dash, I got in the car and had no brakes,” Reutzel explains. “There was a hole in a line. Since we started up front we were able to hold on and then get it fixed for the feature.” Reutzel went on to lead all 30 laps of the feature, though he had to move around throughout the race to secure the $5,000 winner’s share and All Star points lead. “I jumped out early and was rolling the bottom, but I could feel myself getting slower,” Reutzel says. “Just as I was thinking about moving up the track, I could hear someone out there. A caution came out then and I knew I had to jump up there to the top.” The top didn’t last for the duration though. “It only lasted about ten laps, then I moved to the middle of the track to finish it,” Reutzel explains of the winning laps. “It feels really good to have some speed on these slow and slick tracks,” Reutzel says of the progression of the BRM No. 87 Sprint Car. This weekend Reutzel makes a return to Eldora Speedway, where he picked up a 360-ci win in his only previous visit in 2016. Sunday’s card will also mark his second start at Tri-State Speedway. 2018 Quick Stats: 15 races, 2 wins, 6 top-fives, 8 top-tens. Up Next: World of Outlaws Sprint Car at Eldora Speedway (Rossburg, OH) on Friday and Saturday and then Tri-State Speedway (Haubstadt, IN) on Sunday.

  7. Herbert Tops DCRP Season Opener with Gray, Kaup, Burkhart & Wahrman Posting Wins as Well by Lonnie Wheatley DODGE CITY, Kan. (May 5, 2018) – After leading much of the way before briefly losing the point in traffic, hometown shoe Brian Herbert cashed in on a late opportunity to win Saturday night’s season-opening 20-lap Precise Racing Products DCRP Sprint Car feature atop the 3/8-mile Dodge City Raceway Park clay oval. While Herbert scored his second season-opening win in the past three years, other opening night winners included Kevin Gray in IMCA Modifieds, Jeff Kaup in IMCA Sport Modifieds, Troy Burkhart in IMCA Stock Car action and Duane Wahrman in the IMCA Hobby Stocks as a total of 89 cars filled the pit area. Herbert gridded the Sprint Car feature outside the third row and rallied into second behind Tyler Knight by the sixth round. Herbert went to work on Knight on the low side and put the Dodge City Concrete/Myers Racing Engines No. 97 entry in the lead by the sixth round. Knight closed back in as traffic became a factor over the final rounds and slipped around Herbert to take command on the 16th round. The lead was short-lived however when his left front tire flew off the car going through turns three and four to bring out a final caution. Herbert took off on the final restart to secure the win ahead of Ray Seemann with J.D. Johnson, two-time and defending track champion Taylor Velasquez and Tracey Hill rounding out the top five. “I hated to see that happen to Tyler Knight. He got us there in traffic, I wasn’t gonna get out of the groove and get freight-trained,” Herbert said afterward. “I thought before the race that I could roll the top early to move forward. But I’m a bottom feeder so I got to the bottom as soon as I could.” In the 20-lap IMCA Modified feature, Ulysses’ shoe Kevin Gray battled into the lead on the fifth circuit then held off Arizona’s R.C. Whitwell over the closing rounds to post his first DCRP win since August of 2015. Gray gridded the feature outside the front row, but it was pole starter Ryan Heger gunning into the lead at the drop of the green flag. Gray kept the heat on and raced back into the lead on the fifth lap. While Gray slipped away, Whitwell worked his way into second just past the midway point and closed in to challenge over the final circuits. Whitwell poked his nose under Gray in turns three and four on the white flag lap and then took a shot on the high side on the final round, but Gray held steady to post the win. “I didn’t really hear much,” Gray said. “I just kept my eyes open and my ears closed.” Joel Lane filled out the podium behind Gray and Whitwell with Kale Beavers and Jack Kirchoff rounding out the top five. Four-time and defending IMCA Sport Modified track champion Jeff Kaup opened things up in a familiar way by racing to victory lane in the 20-lap feature for his 17th DCRP score since the 2012 season. The Woodward, OK, shoe fired off from the front row but fell to third behind Toby Witthuhn and Brian May at the outside. “I’ve never started on the front row here, so I didn’t know what to do,” Kaup said. “I completely botched both of those original starts.” Kaup took advantage of May to take over second on the ninth round and then pounced on Witthuhn for the point on a lap 13 restart. Kaup opened up his advantage to a half-straightaway by the time the checkered flag flew with Witthuhn, May, 16th-starter Daylon Bergeron and Bart Baker filling out the top five. Recently back into the seat after a layoff of more than 15 years, Hays racer Troy Burkhart wired the field to take the win in the 20-lap IMCA Stock Car feature. Burkhart raced into the lead at the outset from the pole position but had his hands full much of the way fending off Ulysses’ Ron Hartman for the lead. Burkhart survived a final caution with just two laps to go to preserve the win ahead of Hartman with Shannon Maughlin, Dustin Witthuhn and Travis Baird rounding out the top five. Pratt’s Duane Wahrman picked up where he left off last season by winning the 20-lap IMCA Hobby Stock feature. Wahrman, who added his third win of the 2017 season in the season finale, led all 20 laps to take the victory. Defending track champion Reagan Sellard closed in midway through though and kept the pressure on the rest of the way. Wahrman was up to the task, holding off Sellard for the win with Dan Rogers, Tathan Burkhart and Matt O’Hair rounding out the top five. Action resumes at Dodge City Raceway Park with on Saturday night, May 19, with the Sixth Annual Modified Stampede that features a $750 winner’s share for the IMCA Modifieds along with a full card of Precise Racing Products DCRP Sprint Cars, IMCA Sport Modifieds, IMCA Stock Cars and IMCA Hobby Stocks.

  8. All Star Double for Reutzel after Runner-Up Finish in Sprint Car World Championship CLUTE, Texas (May 3, 2018) – Aaron Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team were so tantalizingly close to the $100,000 winner’s share in last weekend’s Sprint Car World Championship at Ohio’s Mansfield Motorsports Park. But, after settling for a lucrative $20,000 runner-up share among the stellar field of more than 70 entries, it’s back to All Star Circuit of Champions action for the Folkens Brothers Tucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X Sprint Car team this weekend with events at Sarver, Pennsylvania’s Lernerville Speedway on Friday and then Hartford, Ohio’s Sharon Speedway on Saturday. Both tracks will be new territory for Reutzel and the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment crew that enters the weekend just six points out of the All Star points lead in second. Last weekend’s Sprint Car World Championship had Reutzel in the mix throughout, racing to a second-place finish in his preliminary featureon Friday night and then making a last-gasp bid for the $100,000 winner’s share in Saturday night’s finale that fell just short. “Tim (Shaffer) was fast, there’s no two ways about it,” Reutzel explains. “He was the guy to beat all weekend, he set the tone in Thursdaynight’s practice.” Reutzel started his weekend in strong fashion as well aboard the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspensions entry, timing in second among his group on Friday and then earning the ninth starting position for the feature after a third-place heat race run. “We got to fifth pretty quick, so I started taking it kinda easy thinking that we could get in the top four without any problem,” Reutzel relates. “Some guys got to racing us so I had to pick it up and got to second right away.” Reutzel held second the rest of the way to lock into the Saturday finale, though it wasn’t without some tense moments in the final rounds. “With two laps to go, it started to run out of fuel,” Reutzel says. “It was completely out at the end, we coasted across the line. We just barely finished it.” Reutzel drew the front row for Saturday’s Dash and finished second to earn the front row outside starting position. “We tried a couple of things in the Dash and liked it,” Reutzel says. “But, it still took all I had just to keep up with Shaffer.” Reutzel took a conservative approach over the early portion of the 50-lapper to save the best for last. “I cruised the first 25 laps to save my tires, I tried to not spin them and stayed away from the cushion that was hurting some tires,” Reutzel explains. “I waited until about 20 laps to go to push him and try to make a move for the lead.” Cautions didn’t exactly play into Reutzel’s plans. “I would get to him, then there would be a caution,” Reutzel recalls. “It would take about five or six laps to get going again.” One final caution set up the dramatic finish. “I got a really good start, I got right to him and he blocked my slider, not even knowing I was there,” Reutzel relates. “Then I got another run coming to the checkered,” Reutzel says of the final circuit. “I bonzaied it with everything I had, it almost worked but I got into the fence. All in all, it was still a good weekend to come away with $20,000.” It was a memorable effort that left fans wanting more. They’ll get more with this weekend’s pair of All Star events. 2018 Quick Stats: 14 races, 1 win, 5 top-fives, 7 top-tens. Up Next: All Star Circuit of Champions at Lernerville Speedway (Sarver, PA) on Friday night and Sharon Speedway (Hartford, OH) on Saturday night.

  9. Beason Bests POWRi West Midgets at Oklahoma City’s I-44 Riverside Speedway Lonnie Wheatley, OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. (April 28, 2018) – Jonathan Beason survived a frenzied 25-lap Lucas Oil POWRi West Midget League presented by Executive Concrete NWA feature atop the 1/5-mile Riverside I-44 Speedway clay oval on Saturday night to post his first series win of the year. The Broken Arrow racer fought off an early-race bid from Hank Davis before nursing an ailing powerplant over the final rounds to secure the victory aboard the Hard Eight Racing Ferguson Superstore No. 8J entry. “It has been a long time since I raced on a track that you had to be methodical,” Beason said of the surface bubbling with character. “I don’t race often enough so I’m really not that good at methodical.” Beason gunned into the lead at the outset from the pole position but soon had fellow front row starter Hank Davis nipping at his heels. The 14-year-old from Sand Springs battled into the lead briefly on the tenth round only to hand the lead back to Beason the next time around when he bounced it through turns three and four after losing brakes on a previous caution. “I was waiting for someone to show me if I was setting a fast enough pace,” Beason explained. “After that, I started sliding myself and I found it, the car felt really good.” Beason maintained a several car-length edge in the ensuing laps over a fierce pack of cars dicing for position that included Davis, current series points leader Kory Schudy, defending champion Grady Chandler, Trey Marcham and Chance Morton. Morton’s efforts went awry when he bounced to a stop in turn four after 16 laps while Davis later lost steering exiting turn four with the white flag in sight while still in second and clipped the wall, collecting Chandler in the process to set up a green-white-checkered run to the stipe. And it seemed to be anything but over. “I dropped a cylinder with about eight laps to go,” Beason explained. “I really didn’t know if it would take off on that last restart, I was afraid I might pile everyone up.” His machine responded well enough for Beason to preserve the win ahead of Schudy with Marcham filling out the podium in third. Fifteen-year-old Cannon McIntosh rallied from the 19th starting position to capture fourth with Blake Edwards rounding out the top five. Kyle Clark climbed from 13th to sixth with Morton rebounding to finish seventh. Hannah Adair crossed the stripe eighth with Weston Gorham and “B” Main winner Brendon Wiseley completing the top ten. Beason, Davis and Schudy topped heat race action for the 25-car field. In addition to Lucas Oil and Executive Concrete NWA, additional POWRi West Midget League supporting sponsors include Two-Eight Drilling, American Discount Auto Care, R&M Race Trailer, A1 Machine, Rod End Supply, Pyrotech, Esslinger and MyChron Tom/AIM. The POWRi West Midget League returns to action next weekend (May 4-5) in tandem with the POWRi National Midget series in Missouri on Friday night at Valley Speedway in Grain Valley and then Saturday night at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland.

  11. Reutzel Starts Strong with All Stars – Three-Race Set on Tap for this Weekend by Lonnie Wheatley CLUTE, Texas (April 19, 2018) – The off-season hard work and preparation is paying early dividends for Aaron Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team with a strong start to the All Star Circuit of Champions season in central Pennsylvania last weekend. After kicking off the series title chase on Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, the Clute, TX, racer drove the Folkens Brothers Tucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X Sprint Car to a strong runner-up finish in Saturday’s tilt at Port Royal Speedway before Sunday’s go at Bedford Speedway fell victim to rain. “It was a great way to start the points race, hopefully we can continue it this weekend,” Reutzel says. This weekend’s slate of action includes a pair of All Star cards in Ohio at Attica Raceway Park on Friday and then Wayne County Speedway on Saturday before joining in on World of Outlaws competition at Haubstadt, Indiana’s Tri-State Speedway on Sunday night. The All Star title pursuit got under way for the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment team last Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, PA. “We were in the last flight and qualified second,” Reutzel recalls. “That turned out to not be good though, nobody that started second row in the heats made it to the dash.” After a fourth-place run in the heat to earn a feature position, the team did little toying with the machine before the feature. “We were okay in the heat race. We didn’t do a lot before the feature, but we should have tightened up a lot. We just weren’t any good,” Reutzel said of the 19th place finish. Reutzel and the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspensions team bounced back in a big way on Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway. After setting overall quick time of 16.473 seconds over a stout field of 47 entries, Reutzel earned the third starting position for the feature. “It was slicker than I’ve seen it,” Reutzel said of the ½-mile Port Royal oval. “We went from third to second in the Dash, doing it in the slick. So we felt pretty good.” Reutzel put the BRM No. 87 out front in short order in the feature and led much of the way until a crucial open red flag midway through the race. “We got to the lead and I felt like I was setting a good pace,” Reutzel recalls. “I thought we would be alright.” The past ASCS National champion spotted potential problems at the open red flag at the midway point. “I saw that my left rear was pretty blistered,” Reutzel says. “We added some air to take care of it and I backed my entry off some to keep it straighter.” Even with the blistered left rear, Reutzel maintained the lead until the 21st round of the 30 lapper and then held a solid second position the rest of the way to escape the Central Pennsylvania double with the virtual All Star Circuit of Champions points lead. Off to a strong start of a season that already includes his first career World of Outlaws triumph, Reutzel and the BRM No. 87 team look to carry that success into this weekend’s set of events. 2018 Quick Stats: 10 races, 1 win, 3 top-fives, 3 top-tens. Up Next: Friday – All Star Circuit of Champions at Attica (OH) Raceway Park. Saturday – All Star Circuit of Champions at Wayne County Speedway (Orrville, OH). Sunday – World of Outlaws at Tri-State Speedway (Haubstadt, IN). For those unable to catch the action in person, the Friday and Saturday All Star events are available via PPV on https://www.speedshifttv.com/ while Sunday’s World of Outlaws event is available via PPV on http://www.dirtvision.com/home.php.

  12. Bellm Kicks Off 2018 Season at Air Capital Shootout Lonnie Wheatley, NIXA, Mo. (March 29, 2018) – Kyle Bellm is set to kick off the 2018 season in grand style by making a run for this weekend’s $13,000 NCRA Sprint Car winner’s share at 81 Speedway’s “Air Capital Shootout” near Wichita, KS, aboard the Greenworks Nursery/Landscapes Awarded No. 14k Sprint Car. Following a Thursday night practice session, the Friday-Saturday double atop the 3/8-mile clay oval will mark Bellm’s third “Air Capital Shootout” event with a strong sixth-place finish in his most recent outing in 2014. “We’re excited for Wichita, we’re looking forward to getting the season going,” the pilot of the Kannady Racing Engines-powered Christian County Collision Repair/Bybee Lawn Care entry commented. “We’ve been pretty good there so we’re looking for a couple of solid nights to start the year.” Coming off a strong 2017 season that included a handful of wins and 17 top-five finishes, this weekend begins a slate of approximately 50 events over the course of the season for the PPG Automotive Finishes/Colorvision Sprint Car team. “We’re not going to chase any points this year, we’re just going to pick and choose our races,” Bellm explains. “Between the National races in the area along with the Regional races and weekly shows at Lake Ozark, there are a lot of good paying races within several hours of home.” It will lead to a busy season of racing action throughout Missouri and surrounding states for the VP Racing Fuels/Schure Built Suspensions/Schaeffers Racing Oil entry with an ASCS Warrior Region outing at Moberly’s Randolph County Raceway on April 14 next on the docket after this weekend’s action. The team does however find itself entering the 2018 season minus a primary sponsor. “We appreciate the support that Resource Asset Management Solutions (RAMS) gave us over the past two years and everything that they did to help build this team,” Bellm says. “Hopefully we can find another major partner that can help us continue to improve the team along with the group of marketing partners that we already have in place.” This weekend’s racing action at 81 Speedway fires off at 7:00 p.m. on Friday night and then 6:00 p.m. on Saturday night. Those unable to catch the action in person can watch via Pay-Per-View at https://www.speedshifttv.com/. 2017 Quick Stats: 38 races, 5 wins, 17 top-fives, 18 top-tens.

  14. Reutzel Wraps Up Cali WoO Swing Saturday at Bakersfield by Lonnie Wheatley CLUTE, Texas (March 22, 2018) – With Mother Nature dominating the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Cars California swing thus far, Aaron Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team hope to get on the track one more time before traveling back to Ohio to begin their pursuit of the All Star Circuit of Champions title. With the Wednesday card at Placerville nixed days in advance and Friday’s event at Watsonville’s Ocean Speedway falling victim as well, all that remains standing is Saturday’s Cali finale at Bakersfield Speedway. “We need to get one of these in,” the driver of the Folkens Brothers Tucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X Sprint Car commented. Thus far, California rain has washed out four of six scheduled events. After debuting the newly-formed BRM team at Las Vegas, the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment entry has performed superbly in California with Reutzel bagging his first career World of Outlaws win at Tulare’s Thunderbowl Raceway on March 9 and then marching towards another strong finish at The Stockton Dirt Track last Saturday (March 17) before suspension woes forced him pitside. “It was unbelievable,” Reutzel says of his first World of Outlaws triumph at the Thunderbowl Raceway. “It was the same thing that I did for the Peter Murphy win, I just kind of held position early and then found the top and got rolling. Once I got by (Donny) Schatz for second, I figured that had to be the hardest part right there.” After that, Reutzel battled past Cory Eliason for the win in the closing laps. “The main thing was I didn’t want to show him the top of three and four,” Reutzel recalls. “After I got by him, I was happy that I got by the lapped cars right away, I knew we had it then.” With the following night at Tulare rained out and then last Friday’s Stockton opener awash as well, track crews managed to get in the Saturday card. “The track caught us by surprise all night,” Reutzel says. “We never could quite adjust for the racetrack.” Reutzel still timed in seventh among his group aboard the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspensions entry to grid fourth in heat race action. “Outside was the place to be and we had two good starts get called back,” Reutzel says. “Then a car on the inside wrecked and we had to move inside.” It proved costly, with Reutzel dropping to fifth early before battling back to finish fourth, putting him 17th in the feature lineup. “We loosened up a little bit for the ‘A’”, Reutzel relates. “They scraped the track and it was lockdown heavy.” Reutzel was on the move though, making it up to tenth when a left rear shock broke. “We changed it and got back out,” Reutzel recalls. “We didn’t have another one like the one that broke though and what we put on wasn’t working so we pulled off after a few laps.” It was another night that the BRM No. 87 showed impressive speed. “We had just passed the car that finished seventh when that shock broke,” Reutzel explains. “I feel like we had a car that could have run up as far as fifth.” Reutzel gets one more California chance on Saturday with his first visit to Bakersfield Speedway. “It looks badass, a tight little bullring,” Reutzel said after scouting out the track in videos. “It should be a fun one.” 2018 Quick Stats: 4 races, 1 win, 2 top-fives, 2 top-tens. Up Next: World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Cars at Bakersfield (CA) Speedway on Saturday. For those unable to catch the action in person, it is available via PPV on www.dirtvision.com.

  16. Texan Aaron Reutzel Scores WoO Top Five in BRM Debut; Thunderbowl Double this Weekend by Lonnie Wheatley CLUTE, Texas (March 8, 2018) – Assembling all the parts and pieces to a new team is no easy task. But the effort proved worthwhile right away as Aaron Reutzel raced to a top-five World of Outlaws finish in last week’s Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team debut at The Dirt Track at Las Vegas. After showing substantial speed aboard the Folkens Brothers Tucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X Sprint Car only to be foiled by a cut tire on Wednesday night, Reutzel and crew bounced right back to earn the pole position forThursday night’s feature event before posting a fifth-place finish. “All in all, it was a good way to get started,” the Clute, TX, racer commented. “Everyone involved was happy with how things went.” Saturday’s scheduled card at Perris Auto Speedway was an early victim of rain. The team stays in California for World of Outlaws action over the next three weekends beginning with Tulare’s Thunderbowl Raceway on Friday and Saturday. The BRM team unloaded at the track for the first time last Wednesday night (February 28) for the opening leg of the World of Outlaws FVP Outlaw Showdown at The Dirt Track at Las Vegas. And the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment team came out of the box quickly. “We were happy with hot laps,” Reutzel says. “But I guess that I made one too many laps, so they penalized us one lap in qualifying.” That penalty proved costly. “That one lap we had, I got hung out in the slick and ruined our lap,” Reutzel said of the circuit that put him 13th among his group. “Then our heat was pretty much one lane, but we were happy with our speed.” Gridding the “B” Main field sixth, Reutzel rallied into second in short order only to have a transfer position swiped away by a flattened left rear tire with the white flag in sight. “I don’t know if we had it too low to start with or if we cut it or just what happened, but there wasn’t enough time to get back out,” the driver of the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspensions entry explained. Reutzel began Thursday’s action with a qualifying effort that was fifth among his qualifying group. “We went out dead last and still laid down what I thought was a decent lap. I may have left a tenth or two out there, it’s been a while since we’ve qualified so I’m still knocking the rust off.” There was no rust in racing action though, with Reutzel rallying from fifth to second in his heat race to secure a Dash position. “We went from fifth to second in the heat race with no problem and about passed Brian Brown for the lead,” Reutzel recalls. Reutzel went on to win the Dash to secure the pole position for the night’s feature event. “We were good in the Dash, but I felt like we were just a little bit loose,” Reutzel explains. “We tightened it up just a little bit, but it was just a little too much.” With a tight race car for the feature, Reutzel still managed to put together a fifth-place run to make for a successful opening pair of events for the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 team. “I couldn’t quite hit the ledges, and if you’re off just a little bit with these Outlaw guys, it’ll show,” Reutzel explains. The BRM team will spend the next three weekends in California competing with the World of Outlaws before shifting to All Star Circuit of Champions action in Ohio. And the California swing gets rolling with this weekend’s pair of events at Tulare’s Thunderbowl Raceway on Friday and Saturday. Reutzel has enjoyed some past Thunderbowl success with a Peter Murphy Classic win in 2015. “Tulare has been good for me,” Reutzel says. “Hopefully it’s a get-up-on-the-fence kinda deal. It if is, then I think we’ll be alright.” 2018 Quick Stats: 2 races, 1 top-five, 1 top-ten. Up Next: World of Outlaws at Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, CA on Friday and Saturday.

  17. Reutzel Debuts New Team in Las Vegas WoO Double this Week by Lonnie Wheatley CLUTE, Texas (February 27, 2018) – Several months of hard work and preparation will finally come to fruition as Aaron Reutzel and the newly-formed Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car debuts with this week’s pair of World of Outlaws events at The Dirt Track at Las Vegas on Wednesday and Thursday. After taking in Nevada’s Sin City double for the third year in a row for the Clute, TX, racer, the Folken Brothers Tucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution team moves on to California’s Perris Motor Speedway on Saturday night before taking in the entirety of the World of Outlaws California swing over the next several weeks. It marks the kickoff of an ambitious 2018 slate of events for the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment team that includes the pursuit of the All Star Circuit of Champions title along with a healthy portion of the World of Outlaws slates. It’s a season that will encompass more than 80 nights of racing. “I’m beyond excited for this year,” the past Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour champion comments. “This is a big opportunity, hopefully we can make the best of it.” Plans had originally called for the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspensions team to debut during last weekend’s World of Outlaws pair of events in Texas. However, Mother Nature had other ideas in mind with both falling victim to inclement weather. “With Josh (Baughman) and I both being from Texas, it would have been perfect to start with the new team in Texas,” Reutzel says. “This all came together pretty late, we’ve been working hard to get everything ready. We’re excited to finally get on the track this week in Las Vegas.” After Las Vegas, the balance of the month of March will be spent with the World of Outlaws in California before All Star Circuit of Champions action kicks off at Ohio’s Atomic Speedway on April 6. While several of the California venues will be new territory for Reutzel, he has tasted past success at Tulare’s Thunderbowl Raceway with a lucrative Peter Murphy Classic score in 2015. The Thunderbowl double is slated for March 9-10 after this week’s events. First up is a roll of the dice at The Dirt Track at Las Vegas, where Reutzel has raced into three of four World of Outlaws features over the past two years. Saturday’s stop at Perris Auto Speedway will be Reutzel’s first laps at the California clay oval. A new team with a new vision, Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports team looks to start off strong in Las Vegas. 2018 Quick Stats: First events of the season this week. Up Next: World of Outlaws at The Dirt Track at Las Vegas on Wednesday and Thursday, February 28 and March 1.

  18. Courtney Takes Two Winter Dirt Games Wins Lonnie Wheatley, INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (February 23, 2018) – It was a near perfect start to the 2018 USAC Amsoil National Sprint Car season for Tyler Courtney and the Clauson-Marshall-Newman Racing Priority Aviation No. 7bc Sprint Car team. Only slowed by a cut tire in the opening leg of last weekend’s “Winter Dirt Games” at Bubba Raceway Park, “Sunshine” stormed to victory lane on both Friday and Saturday night atop the 3/8-mile clay oval in Ocala, FL, to escape the Sunshine State among the top three in series points. “It’s good for everyone on the team,” the driver of the Rider-powered Driven2SaveLives Spike-chassis explains. “It gives us a lot of confidence going into the rest of the season, it takes a lot of question marks out about whether this was the right move to make or not.” There was little to question about the Schoenfeld Headers/Wilwood Brakes team in last weekend’s set of events. “The only thing that could have been better would have been to win the opening night too,” Courtney comments. “I didn’t get the greatest of qualifying laps and put us behind the eight ball.” After winning his heat race, Courtney was still on the move in Thursday’s opening round of the “Winter Dirt Games” before a cut tire interrupted his charge. “We had passed seven cars in the first ten laps, the car was definitely good,” Courtney explained after his run from the 17th starting position. Courtney went on to salvage an eleventh-place finish in the opener before literally owning the rest of the weekend on Friday and Saturday. He timed in third aboard the CSI Shocks/Walker Filtration entry on Friday before winning his heat race and then making an impressive slide past two rivals into the lead on the third round of the feature. Courtney led the rest of the way in the 30-lapper for his first triumph of the young season after posting 15 wins last year. “I knew I needed to get there,” Courtney explains. “I was running that next groove up from where they were and it stuck. I knew it was only a matter of time before they got there too. So, I knew I needed to get by them and get going.” After timing in eighth on Saturday night, Courtney won his third heat race of the weekend and landed on the pole of the 30-lap “Winter Dirt Games” finale. He left little doubt from there, bursting into the lead at the outset and checking out on the field for a second win in as many nights. “I think it handled even better tonight,” Courtney commented afterward. “We were able to go pretty much anywhere I put it.” It was the season opening weekend that “Sunshine” and the Clauson-Marshall-Newman Racing team was seeking. “We made our mark, was just have to keep digging,” Courtney says. “I’m anxious to get to the next one at Lawrenceburg, I just wish it was sooner,” Courtney comments of the next race on the USAC National Sprint Car slate on March 31. “That will give the guys plenty of time to go through everything and be sure we’re ready.” The opening weekend’s wins also came aboard a car that featured a throwback look to a past Bryan Clauson entry. “That was a cool throwback to a car that Bryan drove for Chuck (Eberhardt) and Fred (Zirzow),” Courtney explains. “That meant a lot because Chuck and Fred were the first guys to take chance on me and put me in a car when nobody knew if could even race or not.” “Sunshine” clearly carried the colors admirably. After what will be a rare idle weekend, Courtney is back in action next Wednesday and Thursday with the USAC West Coast Sprint Cars at The Dirt Track at Las Vegas for the Seventh Annual Sin City Showdown aboard Mike Phulps’ Metal Works No. 56 Sprint Car. 2018 Quick Stats: 5 races, 2 wins, 3 top-fives, 3 top-tens.

  21. Sheppard Romps to $13K Wild West Shootout Finale Win with Strand & Searing Scoring as Well by Lonnie Wheatley SAN TAN VALLEY, Ariz. (January 14, 2018) – Reigning World of Outlaws Late Model champion stormed to a $13,000 triumph in dominant fashion by wiring the field in Sunday night’s 50-lap Super Late Model feature that put the finishing touches on the Keyser Manufacturing Wild West Shootout presented O’Reilly Auto Parts at the 1/3-mile FK Rod Ends Arizona Speedway clay oval. Joining the New Berlin, IL, ace in Hoker Trucking Victory Lane in the finale of the six-race mini-series were Dustin Strand in Modifieds and Cole Searing in X Modifieds. Coming away with Wild West Shootout crowns were Mike Marlar in Super Late Models, Johnny Scott in Modifieds and Searing in X Modifieds. In the 50-lap Black Diamond/Club 29 Super Late Models presented by M&W Transportation Wild West Shootout finale, Sheppard gunned into the lead at the outset and slipped away from the field after some early challenges from Marlar. Even after the race’s first caution erased Sheppard’s substantial lead with just seven laps to go, he took off again and flashed under the checkered flag with a 1.884-second advantage despite losing power at the stripe. “As soon as I took the white flag, it started vibrating pretty bad,” Sheppard explained. “It was a good thing I had a pretty lead. I eased it around and it shut off at the line.” In Sheppard’s wake, Marlar outdueled two-race series winner Ricky Weiss to finish off the Wild West Shootout title with a runner-up finish. It was Marlar’s fifth finish among the top four in the six-race series. “I was eyeballin’ that trophy when we got here, thinking to myself that I’d like to that home,” Marlar said after securing the title. Weiss settled for the show position with Don Shaw and Cade Dillard rounding out the top five while Ryan Gustin was the final car on the lead lap in sixth. Dustin Strand emerged atop the 25-lap MVT/Border International USRA Modifieds presented by Arizona Differential winner in as many events by taking the finale as Las Cruces’ Johnny Scott edged Shane Sabraski by just three points for the Wild West Shootout title. Strand took the win in the finale from the fourth position ahead of pole starter Alex Stanford, 21st-starter Stormy Scott, 18th-starter Sabraski and 17th-starter Lucas Schott. Johnny Scott rebounded from an early incident to salvage a ninth place finish that proved just enough to edge Sabraski for the crown. Cole Searing put an exclamation point on his Wild West Shootout championship by edging Jason VandeKamp at the line for his third RHRSwag.com X-Mods presented by Barnett Harley-Davidson feature win of the series. Working the top side of the track, Searing surged past VandeKamp exiting the final corner to take the win by just .046-seconds ahead of VandeKamp with Cole Haugland, Dewayne Tesch and Steve Muilenberg among the top five. Dates for the 2019 Wild West Shootout have been set for January 5, 6, 9, 11, 12 and 13.

  22. Weiss Wires Wild West Shootout Round Five with Stormy Scott & Josh Cain Victorious as Well by Lonnie Wheatley SAN TAN VALLEY, Ariz. (January 13, 2018) – Canada’s Ricky Weiss turned in a dominant performance in Saturday night’s fifth round of Keyser Manufacturing Wild West Shootout presented O’Reilly Auto Parts action by wiring the Super Late Model field in the 40-lap feature event atop the 1/3-mile FK Rod Ends Arizona Speedway clay oval. Weiss raced to a nearly six second triumph to pocket $5,000 in the non-stop affair for his second win of the six-race mini-series after topping the opener seven nights earlier. “This thing works in the mud, it works in the slick, it works in the rubber, it works everywhere,” Weiss commented afterwards. While Weiss reached Hoker Trucking Victory Lane again, Stormy Scott and Josh Cain posted their first wins of the mini-series in accompanying Modified and X Modified competition. In the 40-lap Black Diamond/Club 29 Super Late Models presented by M&W Transportation main event, Weiss gunned into the lead at the outset and wasted little time checking out on the field to keep himself alive for a potential Keyser Manufacturing bonus of $10,000 if he can make it three wins on the week in Sunday’s $13,000-to-win finale. Don Shaw, also with a pair of wins, is eligible for the bonus as well. Weiss streaked under the checkered flag a healthy 5.852-seconds ahead of Cade Dillard with Ryan Gustin, Brandon Sheppard and Shaw rounding out the top five. The MVT/Border International USRA Modifieds presented by Arizona Differential offered up the fifth different winner in as many rounds of action with New Mexico’s Stormy Scott taking the 25-lap triumph from the third staring position. Scott raced to the line ahead of Johnny Scott, Shane Sabraski, Lucas Schott and R.C. Whitwell. Josh Cain added his name to the win ledger as well by topping the 20-lap RHRSwag.com X-Mods presented by Barnett Harley-Davidson feature event. Cain became the fourth different winner of the series ahead of Miah Christensen with Lance Schill, Eric Haugland and Cole Searing among the top five. The Keyser Manufacturing Wild West Shootout presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts concludes with Sunday’s $13,000-to-win Super Late Model tilt that features Modifieds and X Modifieds as well. Racing action gets under way at 6:00 p.m. Advanced tickets may be purchased online at www.wildwestshootout.net/schedule/ and ticket pricing/purchasing information can be found at www.wildwestshootout.net or by calling the Wild West Shootout office at 520-664-2074.

Chris Simpson and Earl Pearson, Jr., rounded out the top five. After a 12th-place finish, two-time winner Don Shaw still has a shot at an extra $25,000 from the Keyser Manufacturing Quarter-Million Bonus if he can top the final two rounds.

  24. Marlar, Scott & Bintz atop Wild West Shootout Point Charts after Two Rounds by Lonnie Wheatley SAN TAN VALLEY, Ariz. (January 9, 2018) – With the initial two of six rounds of the 12th Annual Keyser Manufacturing Wild West Shootout presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts at FK Rod Ends Arizona Speedway in the books, the trio of Mike Marlar, Johnny Scott and Scott Bintz are out to the early lead in the point chases. Going into Wednesday night’s third round of competition atop the 1/3-mile clay oval near Phoenix, Marlar leads the way in the Super Late Model ranks, Scott is atop the Modified points and Bintz is setting the pace in the X-Mods. While Canadian Ricky Weiss and Minnesota’s Don Shaw have split victory honors in the opening two rounds of Black Diamond/Club 29 Super Late Models presented by M&W Transportation action, Marlar has posted a pair of third-place finishes to sit atop the point charts. Marlar holds a 15-point advantage over Shaw going into Round Three with Brandon Sheppard, defending Wild West Shootout champ Bobby Pierce and Chris Simpson also among the current top five. While nobody will capture the $250,000 Keyser Manufacturing bonus for winning all six events, Weiss and Shaw both have a shot at a $100,000 bonus if either can run the table in the remaining four events. With a Sunday night win after a sixth-place finish in the Saturday opener, Las Cruces’ Johnny Scott holds a 20-point edge in the MVT/Border International USRA Modified presented by Arizona Differential ranks over Shane Sabraski with Justin Kay, Josh Angst and opening round winner Ricky Thornton, Jr., among the top five. Already with a pair of podium finishes including a Saturday night win, Scott Bintz leads the way in the RHRSwag.com X-Mods presented by Barnett Harley-Davidson by just five points over Sunday night winner Cole Searing with Dewayne Tesch, Jaime Torres and Steve Muilenberg also among the top five. The Wild West Shootout continues at FK Rod Ends Arizona Speedway on Wednesday night with racing action set to go green at 7:00 p.m. with the final three rounds set for Friday through Sunday, January 12-14.

  25. Shaw Shines in Wild West Shootout Round Two with Scott & Searing Victorious as Well by Lonnie Wheatley SAN TAN VALLEY, Ariz. (January 7, 2018) – Ham Lake, Minnesota’s Don Shaw emerged atop an eventful 40-lap Super Late Model feature to take the $5,000 winner’s share in Sunday’s headliner that capped the second round of 12th Annual Keyser Manufacturing Wild West Shootout presented by O’Reilly Auto Part action atop the 1/3-mile FK Rod Ends Arizona Speedway. Following some early drama in the battle for the point between 2017 Wild West Shootout champ Bobby Pierce and Round One winner Ricky Weiss, Shaw battled past Pierce in the closing circuits to take the Black Diamond/Club 29 Super Late Models presented by M&W Transportation triumph from the 13th starting position. “We did some wholesale changes on the car, I think it worked,” Shaw quipped in Hoker Trucking Victory Lane. While Shaw enjoyed Super Late Model victory lane, Johnny Scott wired the field in USRA Modified action and Cole Searing cashed in on Jason VandeKamp’s last lap misfortune to take X-Modified honors as 141 cars filled the pit area in the second night of six rounds of competition over a span of nine nights. With Shaw mired seven rows deep in the Black Diamond/Club 29 Super Late Models presented by M&W Transportation feature, reigning Wild West Shootout champ Bobby Pierce gunned into the lead at the outset from the pole starting position after a quick engine change following heat race action. As Pierce established early command, Saturday night winner Weiss rallied from seventh into second on the opening circuit and soon moved in to challenge Pierce for the lead. Weiss slid into the lead on the 11th round, only to have Pierce recapture the point two laps later after trading several sliders along the way. Weiss kept the heat on and surged ahead at the stripe upon the completion of the 23rd round after Pierce bobbled on the turn four cushion. But, contact near the end of the frontstretch sent Weiss skidding off the track at the turn one exit, ending his hopes at the Keyser Manufacturing $250,000 bonus for a sweep of the six races. “It was just a hard racing deal,” Pierce commented afterward. “I was still alongside, but I just think he didn’t know I was still there. He was going for the cushion and I was already aimed for it. By the time I realized he was coming up, it was too late to back off. I hate that it happened.” With 18 laps remaining, Pierce took off with Mike Marlar in tow as Shaw made his way into third by the time a caution flew with just ten laps remaining. Shaw took advantage of Marlar on the restart to capture second and then slipped under Pierce for the lead in turns one and two on the 37th round en route to Hoker Trucking Victory Lane. Pierce chased the reigning WISSOTA Late Model champ to the line with Marlar settling for third for the second night in a row. “I didn’t need those cautions,” Marlar explained. “I had a shot to roll him (Pierce) there before that happened.” Ryan Gustin was fourth with Brandon Sheppard rounding out the top five. While the $250,000 bonus is out of the picture, either Weiss or Shaw could still pocket a $100,000 bonus courtesy of Keyser Manufacturing by running the table over the remaining four rounds to make it five wins in six events. Four wins in the six race mini-series would be worth a $25,000 bonus with $10,000 for any driver that takes three wins. Las Cruces, New Mexico’s Johnny Scott was the class of the MVT/Border International USRA Modified presented by Arizona Differential field, gunning into the lead at the outset and maintaining solid command throughout the 25-lapper. “We started tenth in our heat and went to second to get some good passing points,” Scott explained. “That started us on the pole and we made the most of it.” In Scott’s wake, Shane Sabraski outlasted Jason Krohn for runner-up honors with rim-riding Jake O’Neil and Matt Leer rounding out the top five. Persistence paid off for Huron, South Dakota’s Cole Searing as he battled past Dewayne Tesch in the final corner of the 25-lap RHRSwag.com X-Mods presented by Barnett Harley-Davidson feature after race-long leader Jason VandeKamp last power on the final circuit. While Searing worked forward from the sixth starting position, VandeKamp distanced himself from the field following the race’s final caution period. VandeKamp held a near half-lap lead as the white flag flew, only to suffer driveline failure in turn two on the final circuit. As VandeKamp coasted sans power down the backstretch, Tesch and Searing closed in and raced by in turn three with Searing edging ahead exiting turn four to take the win by less than a car-length. “There’s being good and being lucky, I’ll take being lucky any day,” Searing said in victory lane. “I didn’t see him (VandeKamp) until we were going into three. I kinda gave Tesch a bumper, but it was for the win and I would expect him to do the same.” Saturday night winner Scott Bintz, Josh Cain and Miah Christensen rounded out the top five behind Searing and Tesch.
