  1. Devil's Bowl Spring Nationals Weekend Canceled Due To Impassable Grounds by Bryan Hulbert MESQUITE, Texas (March 13, 2019) With the grounds of the Devil's Bowl Speedway already soft due to an abundance of rain over the past month, an additional 2.5" of moisture fell overnight into Wednesday morning, putting the final nail in the coffin for this weekend's Spring Nationals with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network. "We want to race. There is no question of that, and we're not happy about having to cancel but we can't very well put on a show if we can't get the teams into the Pits to put on that show," commented Devil's Bowl Promoter, Lanny Ross Edwards, who explained that they were already having to pull rigs out of the pits this past Saturday during practice. As of now, the next events for the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network will be Eagle Raceway on April 25 and U.S. 36 Raceway on April 26.

  6. Hafertepe Holds Off Swindell For Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series Victory At I-30 Speedway by Bryan Hulbert LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (May 12, 2018) Scoring his first victory of the 2018 season with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by Sawblade.com, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. had to hold off Sammy Swindell to get the job done at I-30 Speedway this past Saturday night. Entering Saturday fourth in tour standings, Sam leaves I-30 Speedway tied with Seth Bergman for the National Tour point's lead with the nod to Bergman who has a pair of wins on the season. (Image Credit: Serena Dalhamer) "For the fifth night on this car, we're making strides. Jack Elam called me, and he asked if there was anything he could do, and I said it wasn't anything a little wrench won't fix. We've been working hard the last couple days. We were really disgusted after Lakeside to start on the front row and fall back like we did, but to come out tonight and start fifth and get to the front it was awesome, and winning on Mother's Day Weekend, I have to just thank my Mom and wish her a Happy Mother's Day." Taking the lead with a Lap 15 pass through turns three and four on race long leader Derek Hagar, the two-time National Tour Champion was joined at the front by Swindell on Lap 18. Clawing his way to second from the 16th starting spot, a restart with three laps to go locked Sammy on the back bumper of the Heidbreder Foundation No. 15h. "Sammy just had an unfortunate Heat Race. It was one of the last ones where the track changed to the bottom where it was hard to pass, so that's why he had to start that far back, but I knew he'd be coming. He's got this track's number and we all know that he's the guy we have to hold off no matter if he started 16th of 20th, he'd be coming," stated Sam on the front straightaway. Hafertepe's 31st career Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by Sawblade.com triumph, the second attempt at green after Harli White spun in the first and second turns put Sam to third behind Derek Hagar and Wayne Johnson to start things off. Working Lap 2, the red lights blinked on as Seth Bergman flipped going into turn three. Seth was unharmed, and the race resumed with Hagar starting to put distance over the field. Still chasing Wayne Johnson for second, Hafertepe worked multiple grooves with the No. 2c able to hold until Lap 11 when the cushion in the first turn bit, and sent Wayne flying. Able to stay upright, Wayne rejoined at the tail. Taking over second with Sammy Swindell already up to third, Hafertepe kept pace with the No. 9jr before finally diving to the lead through the third and fourth turns on Lap 15. Caution working Lap 17 for Skylar Gee who slowed drastically in turn-three with the field bearing down, the laps rolled back to 16 complete with Hafertepe taking off with the lead. Slowed again on Lap 19, Swindell was all over Hafertepe for the lead. Able to utilize the center through turns one and two to keep his momentum up, Swindell pulled even with Sam at one point, but would not be able to complete the pass. Never out of striking distance, it was high-speed chess as the pair began racing among the back makers, only to have the caution waved for the final time with three laps to run. Taking the center through the first and second turns to try and get a run on Hafertepe for the lead, Swindell still trailed with all other attempts coming up short. Sammy's 33rd career podium finish with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by Sawblade.com, the wily veteran was joined by three-time National Tour Champion, Tim Crawley, who advanced from the 11th starting spot. Along with Sammy, the "Crawdaddy" was among the few who could make the top of the track work in the feature. Derek Hagar held on to finish fourth with Marshall Skinner making up the top-five. Picking up the CP-Carrillo Hard Charger of the Night, Howard Moore advanced position 15 times to finish sixth. Oklahoma's Tyler Thomas from 15th crossed seventh with Blake Hahn eighth. Matt Covington put on a charge from 17th to ninth with Johnny Herrera finishing 10th. Overall, 38 drivers took to the I-30 Speedway on Saturday night. Heats numbered five with Sam Hafertepe, Jr., Derek Hagar, Travis Rilat, Blake Hahn, and Dale Howard picking up wins. A pair of BMRS B-Features went to Cody Gardner and Matt Covington. Two Owner Points Provisionals were used by Roger Crockett and Scott Bogucki. One Regional provisional was awarded to Kevin Hinkle.

  7. Seth Bergman Excels At Lakeside Speedway With The Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series by Bryan Hulbert KANSAS CITY, Kan. (May 10, 2018) The first repeat winner of the 2018 season with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by Sawblade.com, Washington's Seth Bergman tracked down his first career Lakeside Speedway triumph to become the fifth National Tour winner in just as many events at the Kansas oval. "This was a tough field. I was trying to conserve my tires there at the beginning because the track was wearing tires all night, but we got to a point where [Brian] Brown lid me and I knew I had to get going," stated Seth who went slide for slide with Brown following a Lap 9 restart. (Image Credit: Terry Ford) "That race was a workout. I don't know if I've ever driven that hard, but Brown made me get up on the wheel and I think I caught Tony because he was out front and just didn't know where the track was going. He was leaning on the cushion the whole race, and when you're leading, it's hard to move around and search. I was just fortunate enough to be able to mix it up and found a lane that worked." The third driver to lead the way in Thursday's McCarthy Auto Group KC Klassic A-Feature, Seth found the center line coming into play as the race approached Lap 20. With Stewart railing the cushion at both ends of the four-tenths mile oval, Seth began quickly cutting down his advantage. Setting up for the run with 19 laps complete, Bergman was able to race to the lead on the following lap. "When you're the leader, it's hard to search and know if rubber comes in. The guy behind you are able to search around and find it, and the two guys that finished ahead of us are really good Racecar drivers and really good Sprint Car drivers," stated Stewart who ended up third for the second night in a row as Brian Brown worked by Stewart's Rush Truck Centers No. 14 on Lap 21. Chasing Jack Dover the first round, Stewart stuck the right rear to the cushion and grabbed the lead on the second lap with both crossing the line at the same time. Caution on Lap 9 for Harli White who slowed off the second turn, the restart was short lived as Robbie Price and Paul Nienhiser tangled in the first turn with Nienhiser keeping his No. 9 rolling, and thus, keeping the fifth position. Falling to sixth as the field rolled again on the next restart, Paul's night ended with mechanical issues on Lap 12. Coming to a stop on Lap 14 with Jamie Ball and Chris Martin tangling on the backstretch, the race resumed with Stewart leading over Dover, Bergman, Brown, and Hafertepe in the top-five. Immediately pulling away as Bergman slide Jack Dover to second, the center groove in play put Seth able to run down the No. 14 and lead the final six laps. Brian Brown in second advanced nine positions to pick up the night's CP-Carrillo Hard Charger. "My team, Chad, Michael, Dad, everybody on the Casey's General Store/FVP car did good. I just didn't do my job in the Heat Race and got us buried and really at one point, I passed Seth a couple times so I'm kind of kicking myself for not being able to secure that spot because that could have been me standing there, but Seth did a great job." Jack Dover slipped to fourth in the closing laps with Sam Hafertepe, Jr. making the top-five. From 10th, Wayne Johnson came up to finish sixth with Blake Hahn coming to seventh from 12th. Scott Bogucki grabbed eighth with Terry McCarl ninth. Johnny Herrera from 16th completed the top-ten. A field of 30 drivers was on hand for the McCarthy Auto Group KC Klassic. Into four Heat Races, wins went to Mason Daniel, Seth Bergman, Scott Bogucki, and Tony Stewart. The night's B-Feature went to Ayrton Gennetten. Three provisional starts were used. On National Tour owner points, Roger Crockett and Matt Covington entered with Curtis Evans qualifying for a Regional Provisional. The Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by Sawblade.com races next at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark. on Saturday, May 12. Gates open at 4:00 P.M. with racing at 7:30 P.M. (CT).

  8. Victory for Wayne Johnson In Lucas Oil ASCS debut at Humboldt Speedway by Bryan Hulbert HUMBOLDT, Kan. (May 9, 2018) Picking up his first victory of the season with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by Sawblade.com, Wayne Johnson got the win in the series debut at the Humboldt Speedway on Wednesday night, making it seven events with just as many winners so far in 2018. Leading all 25 laps at the Kansas bullring, the win is Johnson's 51st overall and second in the state of Kansas with the National Tour. Wayne's last trip to Victory Lane came on July 4, 2008, at Lakeside Speedway where the series will race on Thursday, May 10. The win also brought Johnson within a single point of the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by Sawblade.com point's lead. "First off I have to thank Vern and Slippy. They worked their butts off on this thing. Vern's just here for a little bit trying to help get me lined out, but our short track program is really good right now," commented Johnson. "Last year we came here for a Regional show and we stunk up the place, so we just threw something at this thing and it worked. We have Lakeside tomorrow, so we'll see if we can get our big track program rolling there." Able to beat Blake Hahn into the first two turns, Wayne would have to do it a second time as the caution flew before a lap could be completed. Collecting Kyle Bellm, the No. 14k was able to restart after contact with Parker Price-Miller. Back to green for four laps, the caution was followed by the red as Scott Bogucki slammed the wall in turn one. Scott was okay but done for the night. Single-file to the start, Johnson rolled the top of the Humboldt Speedway into the first and second turns with Blake Hahn in tow. Unable to advance past the No. 2c, Hahn kept close as the pair worked to slower traffic. Starting to ramp up his run at the race's mid-point, Hahn set sights on the lead only to have the caution lights blink on for debris in the fourth turn. With clean track ahead, Wayne worked carefully around the Humboldt Speedway as the groove migrated to the bottom. Careful to hit his marks, the final five laps saw the back of the field about to come into play. Able to avoid racing the back-markers, Wayne held on to victory by 1.117 seconds. Hahn's third trip to Humboldt Speedway in ASCS competition, the Griffith Truck and Equipment No. 52 has not finished off the podium as the final step was filled by the driver of the Rush Truck Centers No. 14 of Tony Stewart who advanced from the eighth starting spot. Stewart was also Wednesday's CP-Carrillo Hard Charger of the Night. Johnny Herrera in fourth was trailed by Matt Covington to complete the top-five. Sam Hafertepe, Jr. was sixth with Parker Price-Miller ending up seventh. Seth Bergman in eighth continues to hold the top spot in the tour standings with Tyler Thomas finishing ninth. Subbing for Travis Rilat in the BDS Motorsports No. 1, California's Logan Seavey rounded out the top-ten. The field of 25 drivers was dropped into a trio of BMRS Heat Races with Blake Hahn, Johnny Herrera, and Parker Price-Miller taking wins. No B-Feature was contested so no Provisionals were needed. The Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by Sawblade.com competes next on Thursday, May 10, 2018, at Lakeside Speedway for the McCarthy Auto Group KC Klassic. With Johnson winning Wednesday at Humboldt, he is in the running for an extra $1,000 from McCarthy Auto Group if he can win at Lakeside.

  10. Blane Heimbach Prevails With Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series At Selinsgrove Speedway Bryan Hulbert - SELINSGROVE, Penn. (May 5, 2018) Becoming the 141st winner with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by Sawblade.com, three-time Selinsgrove Speedway track champion, Blane Heimbach, put on a dominating performance to pocket $5,000, plus a $500 bonus thanks to Mach1 Chassis, at Selinsgrove Speedway on Saturday night. Beating the rain by minutes to wrap up the 11 Oaks Farm Battle of the Groves, Heimbach was greeted by roaring applause as he exited his car on the front stretch. An emotional moment for Blane, the driver of the Goff Racing No. 12 choked back tears when he addressed the crowd and dedicated the race to his friend, Craig Vanhorn. "That race meant more to me than anyone here will know. I lost a crew member that has been with me since I started, and this is the first Sprint Car race I've won without him here. I'm not easy to work with or for, but I've had a group of guys that have helped me for a long time, and this winter just seemed like it was trial after trial with people having health issues, then losing one of my best guys, we've just started piecing together a new crew," stated Blane. "After working with somebody for 20 years, you don't even have to really talk. He knows what you want, and you know what he's going to do so working through that, it's been troublesome at times. I really took for granted over the years how good I had it and this just makes me appreciate what they've done, and how long they've been with me." Earning the front row with pole sitter, Seth Bergman, through the Heat/Qualifier format, Heimbach jetted into the lead through the first and second turns as Seth was left to fend off Trey Starks. Unable to hold off the charge of the Textron Off-Road No. 44s, the caution gave the Washington native a shot at the lead on Lap 3 but was unable to mount the charge. Working into slower traffic by the 10th revolution, the Mach1 Chassis No. 12 slipped past the backmarkers with ease. Opening to nearly three seconds over Starks, the No. 44s was able to chip away to bring the advantage to 1.967 seconds at the drop of the checkered flag. Starks best career finish with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by Sawblade.com, the Champion Brands No. 44s was joined on the podium by Davie Franek, who raced through the field from 10th. Posting his seventh top-five finish in just as many starts with the National Tour, Mark Smith crossed fourth in the Mach1 Chassis No. M1. Slipping back from the pole, Seth Bergman completed the top-five and reclaimed the top spot in the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by Sawblade.com driver standings. Derek Locke in sixth was followed by Roger Crockett. Moving up from 12th, Scott Bogucki finished eighth with J.J. Grasso advancing nine positions to pick up the CP-Carrillo Hard Charger of the Night. Blake Hahn rounded out the night's top-ten. A field of 41 drivers on hand dropped into five Heat Races with Ryan Kissinger, Seth Bergman, Mark Smith, Blake Heimbach, and Mike Walter grabbing wins. Three Hoosier Tire Qualifiers were won by Robbie Stillwaggon, Roger Crockett, and Eddie Strada. A pair of BMRS B-Mains went to Ryan Smith and J.J. Grasso. One point based provisional was used by Skylar Gee. A promoters provisional was awarded by Chad Layton. The Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by Sawblade.com returns to competition with another new facility on the lineup at Humboldt Speedway in Humboldt, Kan. on Wednesday, May 9, followed by the return to Lakeside Speedway on Thursday, May 10 for the McCarthy Auto Group KC Klassic.

  17. Night One At Texas Motor Speedway With Lucas Oil ASCS Goes To Seth Bergman by Bryan Hulbert FT. WORTH, Texas (April 6, 2018) For the third time in his career, Washington's Seth Bergman rolling into Victory Lane at the Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track to pick up the first night of Tony Stewart Presents the Vankor Texas Sprint Car Nationals with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by Sawblade.com. "This place had been good to me. We've won a couple of races here over the past few years, but nonetheless, he [Sam Hafertepe, Jr.] made me earn it," explained Seth when asked about the challenges for the lead. Seth Bergman picked up Night 1 of Tony Stewart presents the Vankor Texas Sprint Car Nationals. The win is his 11th with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by Sawblade.com. (Vince Vellella/ASCS) "The track was heavy tonight and I was good in open air, but when I got into traffic, it really dirtied up the wing and made it tough to get around there so that made lapped traffic even tougher and Sam obviously did a good job getting to me. I feel like I made a few mistakes there that let him get close, but we got lucky with the caution when he got to the inside of me. Sometimes it pays to be lucky like that, and tonight it did." Drawing the pole for the 25-lap feature event, Bergman would have to take two shots at holding the lead as the red flew following the first attempt for Harli White who flipped wildly into the wall through the first and second turns after contact from Wayne Johnson. Both drivers were unharmed. With the field restacked Seth again took off with the lead in the Oil Field Equipment and Manufacturing No. 23 with Matt Covington and Tony Stewart giving chase. Caution working the third-lap, Matt Covington would have to drop to the tail of the field as the left sideboard came off the top-wing of his Covington/Graves Motorsports No. 95. Keeping Tony Stewart at bay on the restart, Bergman would pull several car lengths over the Rush Truck Center No. 14 with Sam Hafertepe, Jr. holding third. Racing past Stewart on Lap 10 for the runner-up spot, Hafertepe began to close the gap as Bergman started to contend with slower traffic. Fighting dirty air with laps clicking off, handling the No. 23 became a handful for Seth with the car darting every way but straight as traffic continued to work into the mix. Stalking into the final two laps, the stage was set for Sam Hafertepe, Jr. Building the run as the leaders ran to the white flag, Seth worked into turn-one only to have dirty air again come into play as the two trailed a slower car. Trying to diamond through the first and second turns, it was too late as Hafertepe shot to the race lead only to have the caution lights blink on as Chance Morton spun to a stop off the second turn. Back to the last fully completed lap, the final two revolutions saw Seth hit his marks perfectly as he stretched his advantage to 1.007 seconds over Sam Hafertepe, Jr. at the drop of the checkered flag. Working to third on Lap 17, Sammy Swindell held on to claim the final podium step with Tony Stewart fighting a failing power-steering gear to hold the final transfer spot into Saturday's A-Feature. Running from the ninth starting spot, Blake Hahn completed the night's top-five. With the top-wing starting to buckle, Danny Jennings was able to hold on to finish sixth. Having to transfer through the second B-Feature, Australia's Scott Bogucki stormed through the field from 20th to earn the CP-Carrillo Hard Charger of the Night. Brandon Hanks was eighth with Robbie Price coming from 18th to ninth. The top-ten rounded out with Johnny Herrera. A field of 35 drivers was on hand to open up Tony Stewart presents the Vankor Texas Sprint Car Nationals. Five Heat Races were topped by Wayne Johnson, Zane Lawrence, Harli White, Blake Hahn, and Tony Stewart. BMRS B-Features went to Alex Sewell and Robbie Price. Two provisional starts were utilized by Travis Rilat (BDS Motorsports), and Skylar Gee (Skylar Gee Motorsports).

(December 1, 2017) With under 40 days until the green flag drops on the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire, the first wave of entries has been revealed with 148 received so far for the 32nd edition of the "Mecca of Micros", happening January 9-13, 2018 at the Tulsa Expo Raceway, located inside the River Spirit Expo Center. While some of the listed entries are still in search of drivers, eight of those will be revealed at the coming Performance Racing Industries Trade Show in Indianapolis, Indiana as Clauson-Marshall Racing is slated to bring a star-studded lineup to battle for the coveted Golden Driller. In 2017, Clauson-Marshall Racing put four of their six drivers into Saturday's A-Feature. Among Chili Bowl Champions on the list, Tracy Hines and Sammy Swindell are the only two thus far. For Hines, his 2018 attempt marks the 22nd consecutive time the Indiana native has entered the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire. In 21 previous runs, Hines has made the call for Saturday's A-Feature 14 times. Swindell's 28th appearance at the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire since 1987, the five-time champion will not be alone as New Zealand's Michael Pickens has been tabbed to pilot the Kevin Swindell Racing No. 39. Pickens has five A-Feature starts to his credit. An overall count thus far of 16 A-Main starters and 19 Chili Bowl Rookies, one driver stands out among all on this year's list of Chili Bowl Rookies. Much like Donny Schatz one year ago, the title is Rookie seems off, but nevertheless, Ohio's Danny Smith will make his first appearance behind the wheel of a Chili Bowl Midget in 2018 for Landon Simon Racing.

Tim Aylwin photo Taking the green from the pole, Netto worked side by side with Willie Croft through the opening lap with D.J. working the cushion of the Arizona Speedway to the race lead as the pair began the second revolution. Getting into traffic in the first five laps, Netto maintained a half straight advantage with the race continuing under green as the half-way point came and went. Still mired in traffic, it did little to slow the No. 88n as the advantage over Croft grew to just over a straightaway. Rolling to five laps to run, Croft's hold on second was under fire as Justin Sanders stole the position away for a moment before getting stalled by a group of slower cars, allowing Croft to turn down the track to reclaim the runner-up spot. Caution on Lap 21 for Jesse Baker who came to a stop in turns one and two, Netto brought the single file line past the cone with slower cars in the mix that kept Croft from mounting a charge. Completing Lap 23, the caution flew again as Willie Croft's right rear tire exploded off the second turn. Restarting with his right rear committed to the cushion, Netto held off any low side charges to punch his ticket to Victory Lane. Battling hard with Colby Copeland through the final two laps, Justin Sanders wheeled the low line to second in the Bob Ream, Jr. owned No. 8 with Copeland settling for the final podium step. Taking the win Friday night, Oklahoma's Christopher Bell would cross fourth with Colton Hardy fifth to secure his first career ASCS Southwest Regional Championship. From 11th, the Great Western Transport No. 9r of Reece Goetz claimed sixth with Giovani Scelzi working up to seventh from 14th. Tanner Carrick, Chase Goetz, and Nick Parker made up the top-ten. Not only the final race of the season for the ASCS Southwest Region, the Copper Classic was the final race of the 2017 season for all series that comprise the ASCS Nation. The American Sprint Car Series would like to thank the fans, tracks, teams, and sponsors that make everything possible. We look forward to 2018 and the 27th year of ASCS competition.

  24. Christopher Bell Runs Away With ASCS Southwest Copper Classic Opener QUEEN CREEK, Ariz. (November 24, 2017) Victorious at the 77th running of the Turkey Night Grand Prix in USAC National Midget competition just 24-hours prior to strapping into the Berryman Motorsports No. 31 at Queen Creek's Arizona Speedway with the ASCS Southwest Region, Oklahoma's Christopher Bell added another win to his weekend with a $2,000 score to open up the second annual Copper Classic. Earning the pole in Friday's preliminary A-Feature, the 2017 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Champion slid to the lead ahead of Billy Chester as the pair dashed into the opening turns. Working to a comfortable advantage just as traffic came into play on Lap 4, the advantage over Chester faded quickly but a caution on Lap 6 ended the run for the No. 2b as Nick Parker rolled to a stop. Pulling away once more, the race paused on Lap 13 when Rick Ziehl and J.T. Imperial crashed in turn-two. Ziehl smashed through the wall that lines the track. Both drivers were unharmed. Back underway, Bell again ran away as the race for second began going slide for slide between Billy Chester and Colton Hardy with the No. 2b able to hold as California's Justin Sanders came into the mix as well, dropping Hardy back to fourth. Back into traffic with five laps to run, Bell enjoyed a straightaway advantage and continued up to build on it all the way to the drop of the checkered flag despite the engine starting to spew fluid on his legs in the closing laps. Billy Chester crossed second 4.929 seconds behind Bell with Colby Copeland sneaking through the field in the final laps to take the final podium step. Justin Sanders in fourth is the final driver locked into Saturday's A-Main and was followed to the line by Colton Hardy, who is one stop close to sewing up his first career ASCS Southwest Regional Championship. From 14th, California's Willie Croft crossed sixth with Giovanni Scelzi hard charging from 17th to seventh with brother, Dominic Scelzi in eighth. Josh Shipley was scored ninth with Washington's Chase Goetz making up the top-ten. The second annual Copper Classic at Arizona Speedway continues on Saturday, November 25 with things getting underway at 6:30 P.M. (MST).

  25. Joey Saldana unstoppable with Lucas Oil ASCS at Cocopah Speedway SOMERTON, Ariz. (November 10, 2017) Getting the call to race 48-hours before the start of the Lucas Oil ASCS Cocopah Nationals, Indiana's Joey Saldana answered the call with victory in the team's second night of competition with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network at the Cocopah Speedway. Courtesy of ASCS PR "I was not supposed to be here driving this. Tayler [Malsam] was supposed to be here," said Saldana when asked about the team's formation and quick trip to Victory Lane. "He's had some concussion protocol stuff, and he felt that he wasn't ready to drive. I was actually driving home from Charlotte when Kevin Rudeen called and said he was buying a plane ticket, Kevin wasn't racing Yuma, if you want to come you can drive the car so really, it all happened 48-hours before this three-race deal started." Drawing ninth in his Heat Race to start off Friday night, Saldana ran to fourth, which set the Rudeen Racing No. 26 up sixth in the night's second Qualifier. Advancing three more spots, the overall Passing Point total put Joey starting third in the A-Feature. Racing past Seth Bergman on the opening lap for the race lead, Joey set a torrid pace as the leaders raced into traffic on Lap 7. Working top-shelf around the Cocopah Speedway, the entrance to the first turn brought Bergman back into play as the two swapped the lead for just a moment before Joey was able to race back to the top spot. "It was crazy. On an open track, or if you could get the lapped car to peel off the top, you could see and make a nice corner, but if you tried going in behind another car, or someone hit it wrong it would blow a bunch of dust up and it blended in with the wall," commented Saldana on the challenge the corner presented. "As a driver, you don't want to go to high but you don't want to run to low and hit the hole, but if you missed your mark, and I mean, off a front tire. Just 8-10 inches, you were going to hit it, and guess what. I was off. I did not hit my marks, but luckily we saved it and got back to the front." Ripping two and three wide through traffic from there on, Joey Saldana was unchallenged in the non-stop, 25 lap A-Feature; building a 2.569 second buffer over the No. 23 of Seth Bergman at the drop of the checkered flag. Swapping spots with Seth Bergman from Friday night, Aaron Reutzel used traffic to his advantage as the race drew to a close to grab third. Sam Hafertepe, Jr. crossed fourth with Wayne Johnson making up the top-five. Jason Solwold sixth was trailed by California's Mitchell Faccinto with Johnny Herrera, Travis Rilat, and Lucas Wolfe making the top-ten. With event points tallied, Seth Bergman (368) has earned the pole in Saturday's $5,000 to win A-Feature with Aaron Reutzel (359) joining him on the front row. The remaining six drivers locked in include Travis Rilat (345), Joey Saldana (341), Sam Hafertepe, Jr. (340), Wayne Johnson (326), Jason Solwold (316), and Johnny Herrera (306). With 35 drivers on hand, Heat Races went to Travis Rilat, Aaron Reutzel, Mitchell Faccinto, and Billy Chester. Qualifiers were topped by Sam Hafertepe, Jr., Johnny Herrera, and Seth Bergman. B-Main wins went to Sammy Swindell and Harli White. Racing continues on Saturday, November 11, 2017 with racing getting underway at 7:30 P.M. (MST).
