  5. Fuller Crowned King of the Big Blocks at Bridgeport Friesen and McLaughlin finish behind Fuller after 100 lap New Jersey clash SWEDESBORO, NJ – With his first win since 2018, Tim Fuller, hero of the North Country, took over the race lead at the halfway point and never looked back. If he had looked back, Fuller would have seen the looming shadow of Stewart Friesen getting larger but after relegating Max McLaughlin to third, the #44 Halmar Racing Big Block failed to reel in the leader by the conclusion of the 100-lap, $10,000-to-win King of the Big Blocks. Quentin Young photo Tim Fuller, from Watertown, NY, has now eclipsed the late Jack Johnson’s all-time Super DIRTcar Series win total with Series victory number 32 to his name. He did it after starting in the first position outside of the redraw, thirteenth, and dressing by the best Big Block Modified drivers around including fellow podium finishers Stewart Friesen and Max McLaughlin. Early in the race, Fuller had to make some gutsy moves but he was so fast that he avoided taking big risks along the way. By the halfway point the #19 St. Lawrence Radiology Big Block was in the lead. Then he hit lapped traffic and that’s where experience became vital. “I’ve been doing it so long that I’ve learned to be patient with lapped traffic and not rush it,” said Fuller. “I’ve seen people crash themselves out and lose the race because you are overdriving and it's stupid. I’ve lost them that way and I’ve won them that way. It’s your race to lose when you are leading. Protect the bottom and don’t get slid.” By holding on for the victory, Fuller attained some redemption after allowing Friesen to pass him late in the Thousand Islands 100 at Can-Am Speedway in April this year. The Halmar driver went into Bridgeport with a historic three-race win streak to start the championship season. “Friesen is the best in the business right now,” Fuller conceded. “There’s no question about it. He’s in the prime of his career. I remember being his age. He can still see very well! He has so much ability and he’s not going away for a while so anytime you can win one over him means you’re doing something right.” The racing on the track was intense with three and four-wide moments everywhere. The Hoosier Racing Tire compound game was just as hotly contested as the side-by-side action on the speedway. It played a crucial role in the outcome of the race. “I knew I had soft rubber on the left side and right front,” Fuller noted of his tire choices. “My right rear was as hard as you can get. I think the other guys were running the softer tire. I made a shock change on the right front before the Heat Race and I liked that. We just got better and better. The long-distance races here I’ll take them all day long.” After redrawing the eleventh starting position, Friesen took his #44 up 10 spots to pick up the second-place finish. “We were good,” said Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON driver Stewart Friesen. “We went as hard as we could get with the tire. I think some of those early cautions hurt us a bit when the tires got hot and cooled back off. We’ve got some momentum going and fast race cars. Big thanks to Halmar and Chris Larsen.” He won last year’s King of the Big Blocks and many had him touted as the favorite to win the 2021 edition. Ten more laps or one more restart may have put the ball in his court but the race stayed green and Fuller put too many lapped cars between himself and the #44 for Friesen to challenge him. Tire compound choice was vital. “We have a good notebook from last year,” Friesen noted. “We went as hard as we could go last year too and the track was more abrasive then. Tonight, for whatever reason it stayed a little bit slicker. We were good at the end but we just didn’t fire at the beginning. If you look at those cautions it’s a woulda/coulda/shoulda scenario. We’ll chalk it up and roll on to the next one.” Friesen steadily moved through the field to the front. “It’s an awesome race track,” he said. “Super racy. If you enter on the bottom you can get in there good but then you lose all your momentum to the guys sailing on the outside. It was a little bit sketchy on the restarts going three and four wide. It was fun.” Third-place finisher Max McLaughlin led the second-most laps of the race. The #32C started fifth but was soon mixing it up with the top 3 including pole-sitter and former HBR teammate Jimmy Phelps who had a strong night and ultimately finished fifth. “These races are too long to count on anything early,” McLaughlin said of his early domination. “I knew when we fired well on the restart and drove right to the lead that I may have made the wrong.” Again, the tire game in the pits made for an exciting Feature on the track. “I ran a 400 right year and 300s in the other three,” McLaughlin said. “They were running 400s and 500s so they [Fuller and Friesen] were better on the long runs. Even though we picked the wrong tire we still ran really well. I think we can build on that.” The Mooresville, NC native has one career Series win, the finale of DIRTcar OktoberFAST at Weedsport last October, but he’s been close to doubling up that total. “My stuff was pretty burned out at the end,” McLaughlin lamented. “I was playing defense more than I was attacking. It was a lot of fun. It’s always good racing with these guys. I love racing with the Series and we’ll get another win here soon.” Fourth-place finisher “Batman” Peter Britten was the hard charger award winner for advancing more positions than any other driver. He drove up 16 cars for his top 5 from twentieth. Demetrios Drellos, driver of the #111 from Queensbury, NY was the only driver to run a 16.0 and that was good enough for the $100 Billy Whittaker Cars Fast-Time Award winner. Young gun Alex Yankowski finished sixth against a field of elite Big Block drivers. He a $50 bonus from Ken Bruce for being the highest finishing Pennsylvania/Delaware/New Jersey driver plus a free Hoosier Racing Tire for drawing position number 12 in the redraw.

  8. The Big Cat Stuns Lil Haud in Final Mile at I-70 Sweet Completes Weekend Sweep with Third Straight Win ODESSA, MO - May 1, 2021 - In Kentucky, iconic trainer Bob Baffert rode the coattails of Medina Spirit to his record seventh Kentucky Derby crown. In Missouri, Kasey Kahne witnessed hired gun Brad Sweet deliver his eighth win of the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series season. Trent Gower photo On Churchill Downs' hollowed grounds, jockey John Velazquez circled 10 furlongs in exactly two minutes and one second. At the revamped I-70 Motorsports Park, Crew Chief Eric Prutzman watched his NAPA Auto Parts #49 rip off 13.5 miles in just 11 minutes and 31 seconds. There were odds on Sweet of course, but front row starters Brock Zearfoss and Sheldon Haudenschild shouldered most of the load when the exacta bets came in. When the 30-lap feature went live, all props were on Lil Haud, who amassed a six-second lead in Saturday's sprint. However, a sudden stoppage allowed The Big Cat to close down the homestretch and sneak away with a stunning victory. It wasn't a crown jewel on the level of the Kentucky Derby, but Saturday's sweep was still meaningful for Sweet, who continues building his championship lead and building momentum with the summer of money approaching. "Sheldon was way better than us throughout most of that race, but you have to finish these off," Sweet said. "He left a little opening and got the tires spinning down the front stretch and I saw a gap to shoot. Sometimes it doesn't matter how you get there, just as long as you get there first." After losing Thursday's trip to Jacksonville Speedway in heartbreaking fashion due to a cut tire with eight laps to go, it was given that Sheldon Haudenschild was owed redemption. For 27 laps on Saturday night, he could taste that sweet, sweet redemption; until Sweet himself stole it away. The Wooster, OH pilot of the NOS Energy Drink, Stenhouse Jr. Marshall Racing #17 was in a league of his own from the start. He beat pole sitter Brock Zearfoss into turn one with a big slider and then threw the deuces out and built a massive six-second lead. He mastered traffic and was poised to celebrate a third win of the year until a spinning Tim Kaeding halted his torrid pace with three to go. As untimely as it was, it didn't help anymore that two-time and defending Series champion Brad Sweet had just taken second away from Zearfoss. That put the feared #49 hot on the heels of the #17 with a three-lap sprint to the checkered flag upcoming. All it took was a stellar restart to offer Sweet the launch he needed into turn one to clear Haudenschild with a slider for the lead. From there, he survived an additional two laps and crossed the stripe with an advantage of 1.508-seconds over Carson Macedo, who snookered Haudenschild as well. The win marked Sweet's third in three nights, his fifth in five Missouri races, his eighth in 18 season events, and the 66th of his World of Outlaws career, which ties him with Craig Dollansky and Bobby Davis Jr. for 12th all-time. "We've still got a long summer ahead of us with a lot of big races left," Sweet said on their early success. "We've got to keep our heads down, keep capitalizing, keep executing, and keep winning. We're the best team out here and I feel like I'm at the highest level I've ever been at as a driver. I want to win as many as possible this year." Following Sweet by Haudenschild to take second on the final restart was Carson Macedo, who drove the Jason Johnson Racing #41 to his tenth consecutive top-10 finish. "Our car was really good, but I just felt like there were parts where we fell in in line and I couldn't make something happen," Macedo noted on his race. "I found the rubber before Brock [Zearfoss] because of a lapper, and then Sheldon [Haudenschild] got so tight on the bottom I got by him. Looking forward to a weekend at Eldora next!" The story of the race ultimately ended up third as Haudenschild faded to the show position on the final restart. "We just got beat," Haudenschild admitted. "I let my guys down. We had the winning car, but the driver didn't get it done. It doesn't matter how many you lead, we have to hang on for that last lap. I got too snug on that restart and let Brad get by. He's the guy to beat right now and that's really motivating us to get better." Closing out the top ten on night two of the FVP Platinum Battery Showdown was Kyle Larson in fourth, Donny Schatz in fifth, Brian Brown in sixth, Brock Zearfoss in seventh, Giovanni Scelzi in eighth, David Gravel in ninth, and Logan Schuchart in tenth.

  9. Blane Heimbach Returns To Lucas Oil ASCS Victory Lane At Selinsgrove Speedway Bryan Hulbert – SELINSGROVE, Penn. (May 1, 2021) Making the late-race run for the win after a Lap 17 caution, Selinsgrove’s Blane Heimbach remains undefeated in the RiteWay Sealing and Paving Battle of the Groves at Selinsgrove Speedway with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network at URC Sprints. “I didn’t even realize I was running second on that restart,” chuckled Blane. Talking about the run, a late-race change to the wing was the key to getting to the lead, “I was not good at all. I missed the setup and just could not get any speed. The No. 28 [Bogucki] was able to move around, and I just couldn’t, so under that yellow, I grabbed the only adjustment I had and moved the wing all the way back, and it paid off.” Taking the green fourth, Heimbach maintained the position until Lap 16, when Tim Shaffer slowed while running second. Taking over second one lap later as Scott Bogucki shredded a left rear tire, the restart pitted Blane against Steve Buckwalter with eight laps to run. Diving the hub of the half-mile in turn one, the No. 12 slid Buckwalter, who answered the pass down the back straightaway. Setting up the same move again the following lap, Blane roared past the No. 38 through the first and second turns. Trying to turn and run, the momentum wasn’t there for Buckwalter, who watched Heimbach race to a 1.870-second lead at the drop of the checkered flag. Buckwalter in second was joined on the podium by Derek Locke, who wrestled away third on Lap 23 from Matt Covington, who ended up fourth with Blake Hahn completing the top five. Dylan Westbrook moved up four spots to get sixth with Devon Borden in tow. Making up seven positions, Borden was trailed by Jason Shultz, who also passed seven times. Davie Franek and Pat Cannon completed the top ten. A field of 36 drivers was on hand Saturday night with SCE Gaskets Heat Race wins going to Derek Locke, Colby Thornhill, Matt Covington, and Steve Buckwalter. A pair of BMRS B-Features went to Paulie Colagiovanni and Mark Smith. One provisional was used by Alex Hill. The next event for the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network will be a showdown against the Great Lakes Super Sprints on Friday, May 7, and Saturday, May 8 at I-96 Speedway in Lake Odessa, Mich.

  10. Josh Rice wins Ralph Latham Memorial for Biggest Career Win Union, KY (May 1, 2021) – Josh Rice scored the biggest win of his racing career on Saturday Night at Florence Speedway. He won the 35th Annual Ralph Latham Memorial and earned $15,000 for the victory. On lap 57, Rice took the lead from Hudson O’Neal and pulled away for a spectacular win in front of his home track crowd. Rice’s margin of victory was 1.212 seconds ahead of O’Neal at the finish line. The 22-year-old Kentucky racer scored his first career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win. Jonathan Davenport led the first 18 laps before yielding the lead to O’Neal, ultimately finishing third. Tyler Erb charged from the 18th starting spot to finish fourth. Current series point leader Tim McCreadie finished fifth after starting 15th. O’Neal picked up the top spot-on lap 19 from Davenport, then Rice moved around the 3-time series champion on lap 28 for second. A caution with 32 laps complete set-up a fantastic battle between O’Neal and Rice. Time-after-time Rice threw a slide job in turns one and two to briefly take the lead, but each time O’Neal crossed over to maintain the point. Rice was overcome with emotion in Lucas Oil Victory Lane as he became the 11th different winner on the series tour in 2021. “I can’t believe it. I thought I was never going to get by him [O’Neal]. I didn’t know if I was clearing him or not. I wanted this one so bad. I have been asked what is my most wanted win and it is this race. Dave Latham and his family have been so good to me. You race fans are awesome. I almost lost my voice screaming in the car getting over here to victory lane.” “I had to show the backstretch some love. I never get to celebrate with the backstretch crowd. He [O’Neal] got really tight going into the corners and I knew it was my shot to get past him for good. I was trying so hard to peddle if off of two and down the backstretch. I was so much better down in three and four than anybody else. I was so thankful when we cleared him. The first 20 or so laps I tried to take it easy.” O’Neal, the 2018 event winner, came home second to remain in the runner-up spot in the points to McCreadie. “He [Rice] was like a fly, every time you swatted him away, he would come back. That was an awesome race. I wish it would have ended a little different, but congrats to Josh. I know it’s a huge home crowd win for him. I can relate when I won the Jackson a few years ago, I had that same feeling. We had a good race car all night long, we just came up one spot short.” Davenport was seeking his third Latham Memorial win, but came home in third. “I couldn’t get those young guns to slow down enough to catch back up to them. Josh did a great job. He runs here a lot and he knows how to run this cushion. Our car was balanced. I thought the top was better in three and four and I never thought it would be there in one and two.” The winner’s Rick Jones-owned Rocket Chassis is powered by a Jay Dickens Racing Engine and is sponsored by Sunesis Construction, Maxwell Trucking, Base Racing Fuels, Integra Shocks, Valvoline, and Slicker Graphics.

  11. so youre saying theres a chance?<sarcasm>

    I stand ready and willing to do whatever it takes to restore San Antonio Speedway to its rightful position as Texas' premier paved short track. It can be done. It should be done. But it will take someone with access to significant capital, a sincere love of the sport and a willingness to forego immediate financial returns on their investment to step up. I am available to work with such a person to help make it happen. Nick
  12. Davenport takes LOLMDS win at the wire at Ponderosa Junction City, KY (April 30, 2021) – Jonathan Davenport passed race leader Tim McCreadie coming to the checkered flag on Friday Night at Ponderosa Speedway to take the win. The 3-time Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series National Champion edged McCreadie by just .234 seconds. With the victory, Davenport becomes the first back-to-back winner of the season. Courtesy of LOLDS PR The current series point leader, McCreadie, finished in second followed by Mike Marlar, Hudson O’Neal, and 12th place starting Shane Clanton. McCreadie started on the pole and set a steady pace early with Marlar and Davenport trying to stay close to him. Marlar briefly led a lap just past the halfway mark, but McCreadie was able to retake the lead as lap 28 was scored. A caution with 32 laps scored bunched up the field one more time and set-up a shootout to the finish. Marlar held the second spot behind McCreadie as Davenport wrestled the spot away from Marlar with nine laps to go. Davenport set sail catching McCreadie in traffic with a just a few laps remaining that set-up the amazing finish. For the 52nd time in his career, Davenport visited Lucas Oil Victory Lane. He talked about his race winning move, “Timmy [McCreadie] got hung up behind those lapped cars and was just a sitting duck there. I did not have any choice except to try something different. I thought earlier in the race I could snooker them on the bottom. We got really good down there and then Timmy moved to the bottom. The cautions have been killing me here lately. Me and [Mike] Marlar went back-and-forth for second and third. I knew our car was pretty good and Timmy’s was too. The first time I came here I embarrassed myself, but ever since we have had a good set-up for this place.” McCreadie still looked stunned in his post-race interview as he came up just short of his second series win of the season. “I should have known better than to be so low, the outside is always good at the end of the races here. I just got a little complacent. I didn’t get into turn one good. I didn’t really hear anybody down the backstretch. You could second-guess all day with what happened. We were really fast all night.” Marlar has raced at Ponderosa Speedway for over 20 years. He was in the hunt the entire distance and came home in third. “I had my car a little too loose. These guys are some of the best racers in the country. You are not going to outdrive them; you have to drive your best and have your car perfect too. I felt like I drove the car good, but I didn’t have what I needed to win tonight.” The winner’s Lance Landers Motorsports Longhorn Chassis is powered by a Clements Racing Engines.

  17. Sweet Survives Bullring Brawl at Jacksonville for Sixth Win of Season Haudenschild's Flat, Larson's Spin & Schatz's Slider Highlight Chaotic 40-Lapper JACKSONVILLE, IL - April 29, 2021 - They sold full seats at Jacksonville Speedway on Thursday night, but the massive crowd only needed the edges of them. The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series rolled into town for one night only and continued to offer The Greatest Show on Dirt. It was breathtaking, extraordinary, astounding, chaotic, and dramatic more than anything else. The box score will only show two different official leaders, but in all reality the battle for the win was decided between six, count 'em SIX DRIVERS: Sheldon Haudenschild, Brad Sweet, Kyle Larson, Carson Macedo, David Gravel, and Donny Schatz. In the end, it wasn't the fittest, but actually the Sweetest who survived the mayhem to topple the $10,000 Feature at the 1/4-mile. Taking advantage of Haudenschild's cut tire, Sweet inherited the lead then fended off a three-wide attack and a slide job on the final restart to secure his sixth win of the season aboard the Kasey Kahne Racing, NAPA Auto Parts #49. The Grass Valley, CA native knows he wasn't the best, but hey that's short track racing as The Big Cat put it. "That right there was short track racing as its finest, wow," Sweet proclaimed. "I hope you fans know we can feel all of this energy. It's so fun to be a World of Outlaws driver right now. That was action packed and I don't think I was anywhere close to being the best car, but we survived with luck on our side. It's such a tough 40 laps around this place." Questions mounted with heavy rains dousing the facility on Wednesday evening, but the staff at Jacksonville Speedway was more determined than ever to not let Mother Nature spoil the party. The action got off to a hot start with Sheldon Haudenschild clocking the first-ever nine-second lap at the 1/4-mile with a time of 9.990 seconds in Slick Woody's Qualifying to set the New Track Record. His lightning-quick run put Jacksonville alongside River Cities (9.260), Bloomington (9.300), US-36 (9.840), Cottage Grove (9.991), and I-55 (9.995) as only the sixth track in World of Outlaws history with a nine-second lap. Haudenschild's momentum carried the NOS Energy Drink #17 to the outside pole of the 40-lap feature with Sweet starting inside of him after taking the DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash. The Wooster, OH native used the outside to his advantage and threaded the needle to lead the opening circuit. Haudenschild paced the opening eight laps before a restart allowed Sweet to slide in front of him and take command. Sweet proceeded to lead the next 19 laps before Haudenschild roared back to the point with a daring move in heavy lap traffic. Just as the #17 pulled a diamond off turn two and slid the #49 for the top spot in turn three, the caution flew and set up the final double-file restart with 11 to go. Lil Haud elected to take the top side and quickly drove away as he looked poised to score his third World of Outlaws win this season. However, a cut tire with only eight laps left soured his shot at the lead and sent him to the work area to change a right rear tire. The ensuing restart gave Sweet the lead, but a mistake in turn one created a three-wide frenzy as he fought Carson Macedo and Kyle Larson for the top spot. The battle was short-lived as contact from Macedo and Larson sent the #57 spinning to a stop and removed him from contention. From there, David Gravel entered the picture, but couldn't make much of his run at Sweet. However, a caution on Lap 39 for Zach Hampton set fans up with a thrilling green-white-checkered as Donny Schatz lined up behind Sweet with the win on the line. Schatz aced the middle of turns one and two then launched a turn three slide job as the duo raced back to the white flag. Sweet was quick to react and crossed under Schatz out of turn four to withhold the lead with one to go. Schatz had one last ditch effort coming to the checkered flag, but ultimately Sweet survived to win the thriller by 0.190-seconds. "Hey, a win is a win it doesn't matter how you get there," Sweet said. "I about flipped, biked up, all but wrecked there at the end. A lot of things played out in my favor to get this win. You never want to see the yellow coming to the checkered I can tell you that. Luckily, I kept my tires underneath to me cross Donny back and held on to put one more lap together." For 10-time Series champion Donny Schatz, it was his second consecutive runner-up finish aboard the Tony Stewar/Curb-Agajanian Racing #15. After a tough three-week stretch, he admitted the team has recalibrated and their hard work is showing. "You gotta crawl before you can walk, and you gotta walk before you can run," Schatz noted. "My Carquest, Ford Performance guys are doing great. We've been getting better and that's all you can ask for. We reset and went back to square one, so now we're building ourselves back up again. Times change, people change, and we're changing with it. I'm gonna keep doing what I've been doing for the past 25 years here." Rounding out the top five at Jacksonville was David Gravel (Big Game #2) with his career-best finish of third at the 1/4-mile, Carson Macedo (Jason Johnson #41) with a strong fourth-place finish, and Rico Abreu of St. Helena, CA with his best finish of the season in World of Outlaws competition. Closing out the top ten on Thursday night was Jacob Allen with his first top-ten since February, Tim Kaeding with his best run yet aboard the Tony Stewart #14, Logan Schuchart after going tailback on Lap 29, Sheldon Haudenschild following his heartbreak on Lap 32, and Aaron Reutzel, who also recovered from the work area.

  20. Countless hours, effort go into every World of Outlaws/DIRTcar event - No detail is left unturned when it comes to putting on the best dirt car racing events in the country CONCORD, NC – April 29, 2021 – Fireworks fired into the sky along the backstretch at Bristol Motor Speedway, in sync with the race cars passing by. Banners hung around the colosseum-like facility like art in a house. Merchandise trailers lined in an orderly fashion by the entrance of fans efficiently being entered into the track. Those fans saw the pageantry of four events between the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Cars, World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Models, Super DIRTcar Series and DIRTcar Modifieds at Bristol Motor Speedway executed to perfection. What they didn’t see were the days… no weeks… no months of planning and stress carried on the shoulders of many behind the scenes. And that’s not just for the historic Bristol events. That’s for every event under the World of Outlaws and DIRTcar banner. The birth of an event starts much further in advance than many may imagine. For Bristol, it started in July of last year, according to World of Outlaws and DIRTcar CEO Brian Carter. “It was all conceptual,” Carter said about the idea of returning to Bristol. “They didn’t know what the dirt would be or if it would even happen. It was a pretty significant timeline to make it happen. The key, for most of it, is to get where it balances itself into the schedule because pretty much every weekend is booked with our calendar. So, it has to fit inside the existing calendar. You’re trying to build it in conjunction with the rest of the schedule and the rest of the racing season. Between every weekend from February to November, we’re racing.” While in the development phase, Carter presented the idea to Jeff Hachmann, the executive director of events for the World of Outlaws and DIRTcar, who then takes it and draws out the blueprints before the foundation is made. Can the event be profitable? What are the expenses? What is the business relationship with the venue? What works for ticket prices? What are the storylines? How does it fit with sponsors? Will the facility work for the series in general? Those are just a few of the early questions that need to be answered to bring it all together, according to Hachmann. One of the key early questions to address is whether an event will be promoted by the track, by the Series or a joint venture between them. That’ll determine who is the lead on the rest of the important questions. “The historical events are all their own events. The promoters have been in business way before I got involved,” Carter said. “We’ve spent an extraordinary amount of money marketing and building the World of Outlaws brand, even into the year COVID last year we doubled our marketing campaign to raise awareness for the branding. All that advertising and marketing is captured through the fans coming through the gates. We’ve been joint venturing and renting racetracks to really get a return on that. “All of our new events and events established in the last decade have either been joint ventures or rentals with the racetrack. Candidly, with 200 big-event-style event nights with the Super DIRTcar Series and World of Outlaws, we can kind of mitigate the risk of losing an event to rain. We have a much higher tolerance for having a bad night, than a track itself, because we can mitigate it over 20 nights. If you lose one out of 20 in a month, it’s not that bad. We do joint ventures and rentals where we can.” Bristol is a recent example of a joint venture between the series and the track. The teams from both organizations worked together to make sure every day of the event, and the marketing prior, was flawless. Meetings were held once a week from the beginning of the year up until the day before the event, while departments from both organizations were in constant contact. In those conversations, there was the fine-tuning of the smallest details like where merchandise trailers need to be parked, what’s the extent of the use of the media center, making sure there are different color wrist bands for different purposes and who will handle ticketing at the gate. “We had to divide up all those assets and decide who is doing what, so we didn’t step on each other’s toes,” Hachmann said. “They have a great staff. We have a great staff. How do we use those two staffs to come together?” In contrast, Super DIRT Week (Oct. 6-10) at Oswego Speedway, another big event for the company, is an example of a track rental. That puts every detail, down to the smallest cell, on the shoulders of the company. With more than 900 camping spots on the property, steps need to be followed to ensure permits are in place with the health department. Due to a nuclear plant within five miles from the speedway, there needs to be approval from the Pentagon that there is a proper evacuation plan in place if there were to be an emergency situation. “When you’re creating an area like that, and you have these mass gatherings, you have to be aware of everything,” Hachmann said. “We have to be aware of noxious weeds, believe it or not. We have to make sure we have sanitizers in all bags and if there’s a high mosquito count, we have to provide info on what to do if bit by one. And there’s working with the police and the fire. “We have to worry about people crossing streets and the neighborhoods around the facility and make sure the flow of the traffic doesn’t hinder the neighbors. We have to make sure there’s access for them to go to the grocery store or go to Dunkin’ Donuts.” Before coordinating those details, there’s the challenge of finding a proper spot on the schedule for the event. That’s not only to find a prime spot on the schedule for fans to attend, but it’s also for making sure the travel makes sense logistically for the drivers and teams. “There’s a lot of trial by fire in our world,” Carter said. “The calendar is mostly set. Sprint Cars are quite a bit more established. For the Late Models, the calendar is a little more flexible. It’s also built around events we have less control over. But from a Sprint Car perspective, you’ve got your month of money, you’ve got your huge shows in the summer, we know when we’re starting the season and where we’re ending the season. It all has to fit in, and not only that, you have to manage 20 different businesses going up and down the road with you. “Bristol is a little bit unique because it provided a pretty large opportunity for us, as a sport for awareness, for the racers as merchandise sellers, a huge crowd, and a big paying purse. So, you can put that kind of an event in a place that may not make sense logistically because of the opportunity.” The pandemic threw an unexpected curveball at the company last year, forcing the cancellation, re-creation and creation of events throughout the year. While challenging, the World of Outlaws and DIRTcar came out of it stronger. It showed new methods that could be implemented, where the company can be more efficient and the strength of its team being able to salvage a successful season. That was put to use again this year when the Spring West Coast Swing had to be canceled and less than three weeks later an entirely new Spring schedule was released. “We learned a lot during COVID,” Carter said. “We learned the fans are as flexible as we can be, relative to promoting a show. The shortest show we just pulled off was going back racing. In three weeks, we changed it from going to California to going back to Florida (in March). We learned a lot about what was necessary to put on a good show. We learned the value of having a direct relationship with the customer. We can communicate directly with emails, with our social following, with our website and through DIRTVision, we can communicate directly to the race fans. And the better the communication is, the more flexible we can be with the events. We can capitalize on the direct relationship with the customers, which was started a decade ago when we created our own ticketing system.” Once the I’s are dotted and the T’s are crossed, race day can commence. And the on-track portion of the event is “the easiest part,” according to Hachmann. That’s due to there being efficient formats established for every series, series directors making sure drivers and teams have all the necessary information and the race directors keeping control of the on-track action. Everything off track – the display of banners, DIRTVision’s broadcast, fan engagement, ticketing and media relations – is handled by the coordinators of each element. For Hachmann, he just makes sure everyone has what they need to make each of those elements issue-free. Most of that work will go unnoticed by fans, but that means everything went as planned. That’s a testament to the hours, days, weeks and months of work that goes into every event between the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars, World of Outlaws Late Models, Super DIRTcar Series and DIRTcar Racing – more than 200 of them in a year. “How long does it take to put on an event?... It never stops,” Hachmann said. Work continues for the upcoming events, such as the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars at Jacksonville Speedway (April 29) and I-70 Motorsports Park (April 30-May 1), the World of Outlaws Late Models at Boone Speedway (April 30-May 1), the Super DIRTcar Series at Bridgeport Speedway (May 4) and the season-ending World Finals at The Dirt Track at Charlotte (Nov. 4-6).

  23. I-37 Speedway updates 4/24/21

    King237, Back in the day before big money took over NASCAR, there was plenty of sharing taking place - much like short track racing today. But I doubt very seriously that parts and accurate advice are shared between the various teams in today's money-driven NASCAR. In fact, when a key (read, knowledgeable) team member leaves a team, they almost always have to sign a non-compete agreement preventing them from working with , or sharing information with, competing teams. Parts and electronic data are guarded like Fort Knox. And in the garage area, prying eyes are shooed away with many teams putting up barriers when working around "sensitive" areas of the car. The only exceptions are for big organizations with multiple teams competing from the same shop. Even then, there have been numerous instances where the team receiving parts or info from stablemates have claimed inferior parts or erroneous information were provided. Imagine that!

Chase Briscoe Returns to Roper Racing at Kansas Speedway After a top-5 finish for Roper Racing in Bristol, Chase Briscoe will once again pilot the Preferred Industrial Contractors/ CarQuest Auto Parts Ford F-150 at Kansas Speedway.

Team owner Cory Roper is thrilled to have Chase back behind the wheel. “I am excited to have Chase Briscoe back in our Preferred Industrial Contractors/ CarQuest F150. Having Chase pilot our truck on a mile and a half will give us some great feedback on our intermediate track program. I can’t thank Chase enough for jumping in and helping this team get better. We will be bringing him the best truck we can prepare to give him every opportunity to run up front.” Briscoe echoes the excitement from Roper, “I’m excited to get back with the Roper guys, we had a great run on the dirt and I’m excited to see where their stuff is on the pavement side and help them try to evaluate where they stack up. I’m honored that they asked me to do it as I had a blast racing with them at Bristol and I’m sure it will be the same at Kansas.”
