Hodnett Passes Kreitz to Win $10,060 at the Final Showdown at SSP on Saturday
from Todd Fisher
 Newberrytown, PA (November 15, 2014) The Final Showdown for the 410 Sprint Cars at the Susquehanna Speedway Park on Saturday afternoon, November 15 went to Greg Hodnett of Thomasville.  The victory for Hodnett was worth $10,060, the highest paying race ever held at SSP in its 60-year history.  Yorks Chase Dietz took the 358 Sprint Car portion as well claiming the 20-lap feature event.

 By virtue of qualifying sixth in time trials, Freddie Rahmer started in the pole position of the 30-lap 410 Sprint Car feature event.  At the green, outside polesitter Don Kreitz Jr. grabbed the early lead.  By lap 6, Kreitz entered lapped traffic as he set a blistering pace with Rahmer and Greg Hodnett following behind him.  A caution flag just one lap past the halfway point closed up the field behind Kreitz.  On the restart, Kreitz continued to protect the bottom side of the track.  On the 17th circuit, Hodnett moved to the outside and drove by Kreitz coming off turn 2.  Another caution with 5 laps to go gave Kreitz one more shot to regain the lead.  However, Hodnett was flawless and went on to claim the 30-lap and the $10,060 first prize.  Kreitz settled for second with Rahmer capturing the final podium spot in third.  Lance Dewease ran strong in fourth with Ryan Smith rounding out the top five.    

 Heat race wins went to Daryn Pittman, Justin Barger and Danny Dietirch.  Kyle Reinhart won the consolation event. Ryan Smith was the fast qualifier in time trials and broke the existing one-lap track record with a time of 14.256 seconds (0.125 seconds faster than the prior 10-year old track record held by Brian Leppo).

 In the 20-lap 358 Sprint Car feature, Kody Lehman took the lead from the outside the front row.  Fourth place starter Chase Dietz immediately challenged Lehman and took the top spot on lap 3.  Lehman never gave up easily and stayed very close to Dietz over the entire race.  Making an unsuccessful late race challenge for the lead, Lehman fell back to about five car lengths at the ned to finish second behind Dietz.  Matt Campbell finished very strong in third.  Brad McClelland and Doug Hammaker finished fourth and fifth places respectively.  Qualifying heat race winners were Campbell, Kody Lehman and Chris Frank.

 The Susquehanna Speedway Park is located midway between Harrisburg and York off I-83 to exit 32, then 1.4 miles NW on SR382 to York Road, then 1.3 miles south.  For more information, contact the speedway offices at (717) 292-1696 or visit online at sspracing.net.  On raceday, use the track phone at (717) 938-9170 for up-to-date information.

 Eldora’s “Off Season” is Ambitious with Resurfacing of Legendary Oval
 Nearly 400 Truckloads of Clay Being Brought in to Invigorate Surface

    ROSSBURG, OH (November 13) – Eldora Speedway’s "off-season" is anything but that once again as the track surface is undergoing an ambitious makeover under the direction of Chad Schmitmeyer, Facilities Manager of the legendary half-mile clay oval.

 Nearly 400 truckloads of clay is in the process of being hauled on to the high-banks to invigorate the surface that last year produced some of the most competitive racing seen in Eldora’s rich 61 year history.

 As a non-stop parade of 45 trucks hauls in the clay, Schmitmeyer and crew continues to distribute it around the full oval, keeping a watchful eye to maintain the shaping that produced 2014’s multi-grooved racing.

 While the hauling of the clay is expected to be completed within the week, the track preparation will continue right up through the April 11, 2015 Test and Tune session.

 The ongoing ticket and campsite renewal process for the 2015 Dirt Late Model Dream by Ferris Mowers (June 4, 5 and 6), Kings Royal weekend (July 17 & 18), 1-800 Car Cash Mud Summer Classic for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (July 22) and World 100 (September 10, 11 & 12) continues through this Sunday, November 16 at midnight.  Add and Exchange Days, exclusive to patrons who renewed their tickets or campsites for 2015, are November 19-20-21.  The public sale date for the remaining tickets and campsites for these major event weekends is Saturday, December 6 at 10 a.m.

 Tickets and camping for the balance of Eldora’s 2015 season will go on sale on Monday, February 9.

The 5th Annual Final Showdown at SSP is on for Saturday, November 15.
from Todd Fisher
 Newberrytown, PA (November 13, 2014) On Saturday afternoon, November 15, the Susquehanna Speedway Park will host The Final Showdown for the Super (410) Sprint Cars in the Central PA area as well as the entire United States for 2014.  Also included in this special program will be the popular 358 Sprint Cars.  The raindate will be Sunday, November 16, but is not expected to be used with clear weather forecasted for Saturday.     

 The star-studded list of 410 Sprint Car drivers pre-entered for the event include Daryn Pittman, the 2013 World of Outlaws Champion in the Kasey Kahne owned #9; Greg Hodnett, multi-time Track Champion including the most recently 2014 Williams Grove Speedway Track Championship; as well as other local racing Track Champions that include Don Kreitz Jr., Lance Dewease and Blaine Heimbach.  Other SSP 410 Sprint Car feature winners entered include Danny Dietrich, Justin Barger and Aaron Ott.  One notable entry of local interest is 4-time ASCOC Champion Tim Shaffer in the locally owned Apple Chevrolet #12.  Last year, Derek Sell picked up the 30-lap $10,010-to-win victory in the Showdown.

 Super (410) Sprint Car feature event will be 30-laps and pay the winner $10,060 if the driver is pre-entered.  This is the highest paying race ever held at SSP in its 60 year history.  Anyone not pre-entering the event will receive $5,000-to-win.  The race will also pay $300 to start the feature.  Tow money ($50.00) for non-qualifying drivers will only be paid to those who pre-entered before November 11.   For the Super Sprint Cars, mufflers WILL NOT be required.  All other rules of the Central PA Super (410) Sprint Cars will prevail for this event including the current Central PA Hoosier tire rule.   Raceivers will be mandatory.

 The 358 Sprint Car feature event will be 20-laps and pay the winner $2,000 if they are pre-entered.  Anyone not pre-entered for the event will receive $1,500-to-win.  The race will also now pay and increased amount of $200 to start the feature.  Tow money ($50.00) for non-qualifying drivers will only be paid to those who pre-entered before November 11.   The tire rule will be the same used at the regular PA 358 Sprint Car tracks.  All other rules of the Central PA 358 Sprint Cars will prevail for this event.  Mufflers are not required for the 358 Sprint Cars.  Raceivers will be mandatory.

The 410 Super Sprint Cars will qualify in time trials with the top six automatically qualifying for the 30-lap feature.  The top six will be inverted for the feature and will not attempt to qualify through the heat races.  The remaining cars will qualify for the 30-lapper through heat races and last chance races.

For the 358 Sprint Cars, the starting positions for the Qualifying Heat races will be aligned through a blind draw at the pit gate on the day of the event.  The feature lineup will be determined by heat race number one winner drawing for an inversion (1,3,6,9) or (1,2,4,6,8) depending on the number of heat races.

As an extra bonus, all pre-entrants will be able to draw a second time for a starting position if he or she does not like their first draw for position.  However, the entrant must take the second drawn spot regardless of whether or not it is a better starting position.

Thirty Five-(35) pre-entries for the Super 410 Sprint Cars so far

NASCAR STAR KYLE LARSON TO RACE AT PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY ON THANKSGIVING!
from Scott Daloisio
 (Perris, CA, November 12, 2014)   Young NASCAR Sprint Cup star Kyle Larson will be racing at the 74th Running of the Turkey Night Grand Prix at Perris Auto Speedway on Thanksgiving night.  It will be the popular 22-year-old star’s first appearance on a dirt track since racing in the Chili Bowl Midget event in Tulsa, Oklahoma last January.

 The longest running and most prestigious Midget race in the nation, the Turkey Night Grand Prix was first contested in 1934 at Gilmore Stadium, which is now the site of the CBS Studios in Los Angeles.  The race was held at a variety of tracks throughout the years since.  Most notably at J.C. Agajanian’s legendary Ascot Park in Gardena where it was staged all but one year from 1960 until it closed in 1990.  With the exception of being run at Saugus Speedway in 1991, Turkey Night stayed true to its dirt roots until moving to the Irwindale Speedway from 1999 through 2011.  When it made its much heralded return to the dirt at Perris Auto Speedway in 2012, Kyle Larson stood head and shoulders above the competition for a historic win.

 “It is huge news throughout the racing industry that Kyle Larson is coming back to his racing roots to race a Midget on dirt for the first time in nearly a year,” Perris Auto Speedway promoter Don Kazarian said with a huge smile.  “We are ecstatic that his first race back will be at the Turkey Night Grand Prix at Perris Auto Speedway.  He raced here several times over the years, but the most memorable was two years ago when he won the Turkey Night Grand Prix.  The race always draws a lot of buzz from fans and the media.  His inclusion in this year’s race has escalated that buzz to a roar and the race is still two weeks away.”

 In his first full season in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driving for Chip Ganassi Racing, Larson has been impressive since the first green flag of the season at Daytona last February.  Heading into Sunday’s finale in Miami, Florida, he has more top five finishes (8) than two of the final four drivers in the Chase!  He also has 17 top 10 finishes.  Only two of the drivers in the final four have more.

 On Thanksgiving, Larson will be driving a Keith Kunz/Curb-Agajanian owned Midget.  He was driving for Kunz when he won the Turkey Night Grand Prix at Perris in 2012.

 “Kyle Larson’s entry makes an already huge event even bigger,” Kazarian said.  “He is teaming up with Keith Kunz again and he has to be one of the favorites for the win and a chance to kiss the Aggie Trophy for the second time.”

  Modlites also stake their claim  Saturday night as they take part in the Napa Autoparts night running wheel to wheel in their 20 lap main event coming off of a stellar performance in their last high speed feature that left Adam Echter  in victory lane.  The season points leader with only 3 races left for the AMA Modlites Brenden Priest will play the game on Saturday night as he sits only 1 point over Tyler Merrill heading into Saturday nights feature.

  Robert Horne Ford Bombers finish off their 2014 season with only 1 point separating Steve Soboski and Mark Farnes after 25 nights of racing in the 2014 season.  Michael Brigner who lead most of the 2014 season until 3 races ago will need to make up a 14 point deficit on Saturday night.  The winner of Saturday nights main event will take home $150 but the battle is on for the nearly $1000 payday in the 2014 Robert Horne Ford Bomber season championship.

  The final event of the evening will be the guys and girls that make it all happen every week at Arizona Speedway.  The mechanics of the divisions will challenge for the trophy themselves as they strap themselves behind the wheel and battle in a 15 lap main event as the pit crew puts themselves head to head in the cars the serve all year long in the 3rd annual Mechanics Race.

DAMION GARDNER TALKS ABOUT THIS WEEK’S OVAL NATIONALS AT PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY!
 from Scott Daloisio
(Perris, CA, November 4, 2014)   Heading into this week’s 19th Annual Budweiser Oval Nationals Presented by All Coast Construction at Perris Auto Speedway, make no mistake about who is the favorite heading into the prestigious event.  Most insiders are tabbing Concord, California sprint car superstar Damion Gardner as the man who will drive home with the $20,000.00 paycheck on Saturday night.

 The reason most racing pundits are picking the driver, who is known as “The Demon,” to win the biggest traditional race in the country is quite simple.  He has dominated the action in 2014.  The slender star is about to sew up his second USAC/CRA title in a row and his third of all-time.  Heading into the big race, he is 253-points ahead of second place Mike Spencer in the championship standings.  He has won 11 of the 18 main events this year.  He also tops the charts in the series in fast times and heat race wins.  In addition, the Mark Alexander owned #4 that he drives performs almost flawlessly every time it is on the track.

 With the race looming only a few days away, the fiery driver took the time to answer some questions on Monday afternoon.

 The PAS: The USAC/CRA Series has had a long time off since the last race.  Nearly two months. How have you and the team been getting ready and have you done anything special?

 Gardner: No, not really done anything special.  We have had a long time off.  I don’t think anyone wishes for this long of a time off, but I guess that is what USAC wants so that is what we got.  We have not really done much.  Polishing everything I guess.  We will shake the rust off a bit and get going.

 The PAS: Are you guys bringing two cars down?

 Gardner: No.  What do you mean?  One car.  We have three cars, but we are only going to race one.

 The PAS: I mean you are hauling back up cars with you in case of an emergency?

 Gardiner: Oh yeah!  These guys have plenty of spares.  They are ready to go.

 The PAS: You have won the Oval Nationals two-times.  In your mind, how big of a race is it compared to other big races around the country?

 Gardner: Oh, I think it is the biggest race in the non-wing world.  I don’t know if there is any bigger one.  You can argue about bigger sprint car races, but there not any bigger non wing races.  Thanks to Mike and All Coast Construction they got the purse back up to what it needs to be.  It has been kind of down for a while and now it is back to what a purse for something called the Oval Nationals needs to be.  They have got the money back and it is kind of got to be a big event again.  I think you can feel it from the competitors to the fans getting excited about it again.  Hopefully we can all learn something from that.  You put more in, you get more back.  Hopefully we can keep rolling and make this thing bigger every year.

 The PAS:  You just talked about the prestige of the Oval Nationals.  So, what is more important to you?  Winning the Oval Nationals or the size of the paycheck?

 Gardner: Oh, I don’t know.  I have always been a guy who just races to win.  I know a lot of guys say that, but that is not true.  I have always figured if you win races the money just comes whether it is a little bit or a lot. There have been races I won and been cruising around toward victory lane when I am thinking how cool it is just to win and then, holy moly, it pays this much money.  That is a sweet bonus.  So to stack another trophy and get another Oval Nationals win and be one of the guys who wins a lot of them that would mean a lot to me.  And, to be a west coast guy who wins it, that is another big thing.  The money is just a bonus.



 Damion Gardner lets out a yell after winning the PAS season opening sprint car race in March.

 The PAS: You are racing two nights against the best competition you will race all year.  You have all of the regular stars from out here against all of the top guys from the Midwest.  Does that make your approach any different for this race?

 Gardner: Fortunately, I think I am in a good point’s position.  You are going to race to win it.  You are going to race hard to win the Oval Nationals and you are going to race hard to show you are the best.  I take a little pride in showing those guys in the Midwest that we are as good as them.  That goes back and forth through the years.  There was a time in the SCRA days when the west coast guys were probably better than the Midwest guys.  It goes back and forth so there is bragging rights.  Sometimes I don’t think our guys take that serious enough, but we should.  If you can just step up your game or go a little extra, you should.  This is the race to do it at.

 The PAS: You are going to win the USAC/CRA championship this year.  You have won over half the main events.  Had the most fast qualifying times and won the most heat races.  You also met your goal of going more than 200-MPH in a sprint car.  So, if you do not win the Oval Nationals will that have an effect on how you will look back on this season years from now?

 Gardner: Not at all.  The only time a race will affect me is when I have not done my homework or have not prepared well for it.  That is from the car, to me mentally and to correcting the errors I have made in the past.  If I have not done that, then I would feel bad about losing the Oval Nationals.  As long as me and the crew do all of our work and do our best, then I am all right with that.  I have been in a lot of Oval Nationals and I did not win a lot of them.  And, there is a lot of them I should have won, but I didn’t.  You never know how it is going to play out. You just give it your all, your best and hopefully you can do it.

 The PAS: Win, lose or draw at the Oval Nationals, there will be an after the race party in your pit with a DJ and a film crew to shoot scenes for the documentary “The World’s Fastest Sprint Car” on Saturday.

 Gardner: Yeah, we are looking forward to that.  Mike from All Coast Construction is throwing a little party there and wants to film.  You know for the fans to come down and enjoy it after the big race.  If we can go to victory lane, we will have a couple things to celebrate.  If not, we will have other things to celebrate.  It should be a good time,

 Camping for the 19th Oval Nationals will be on the Lake Perris Fairgrounds.  The campground will open at noon on Wednesday and the fee is $25.00 per night.

DEFENDING OVAL NATIONALS CHAMPION DAVE DARLAND IS READY!
 from Scott Daloisio
(Perris, CA, October 29, 2014)   Dave Darland is one of the all-time greats in the sport of sprint car racing.  Earlier this year he passed Tom Bigelow to become the all-time leading winner in the USAC National Championship Series and his victory total now stands at 53.  Only three of those wins have come at Perris Auto Speedway. However, all three of them wins were in the A Main at the Oval Nationals and netted the personable driver $75,000.00.  Darland hopes to up that number to four wins and $95,000.00 at next week’s 19th Annual Budweiser Oval Nationals Presented by All Coast Construction.

 Darland, a 48-year-old who lives in Lincoln, Indiana, never dreamed his career would go like it has and never thought he would become the all-time leader in USAC National Sprint Car main event wins.  Appropriately, he tied Bigelow’s record of 52 wins at his home track, Kokomo Speedway, on August 23rd and he set the new record on the same track the following night.

 “No, I would have never, ever guessed that,” he laughed from his Indiana home on Tuesday afternoon.  “Me and my dad started out in a little old sprint car we pieced together.  We were just lucky to make it to the local shows.  Coming from where we did to where we are now is something I did not see happening in the early stages.  I won my first one (USAC main) in 1993 at Terre Haute in the Hulman Classic. We kind of lucked into it, but there was quite a story to it.  This little old team winning that race on that track which is a big old half-mile.  It was an odd place for someone to win their first one.”

 The racer, who is affectionately known as “The People’s Champ” by his legions of fans, spends most of the year racing in the USAC National Sprint Car Series and on the local tracks in and around Indiana.  Thus far in 2014 the racing grandfather leads the USAC National Series with six main event wins and he estimates he has won 15 main events total this year including those at the local tracks.

 The USAC National Sprint Car Series is considered to be the toughest traditional sprint car series in the country.  However, it reaches its toughest point when it hit the track at the Oval Nationals as that matches all of the top stars in the national series against the top west coast stars in the USAC/CRA Series.  And, it only happens once a year.

 “The Oval Nationals is always tough to win,” Darland said.  “It always has 45 to 60 cars entered and all of the best drivers are there.  The CRA guys, the Midwest guys along with drivers from Northern California and Arizona.  It is a tough competition and a good racetrack.  Perris Auto Speedway is a tricky track that you have to drive hard, but you also have to use some common sense.  It certainly is hard to win there.  I look forward to coming to the Oval Nationals every year.”

 Darland like his chances heading into next week’s event, but his is anything, but cocky about it.

 “I will have a great opportunity as I am driving for the same team as I was when I won it last year and we have the same amount of wins heading into it as we did last year,” he said.  “We have good equipment and a good team.  My confidence is good about that, but like I said, 55 cars and the top drivers from around the country make it a very tough race.”

 Last year’s win for Darland was a like a boxer getting off the canvas after being knocked down in the first round and coming back to win.  He had an engine problem in hot laps before the first night of racing.  However, the Phillips Motorsports Team pulled there other car out of the trailer and 24 hours later they collected the winner’s check.

 “It did not slow us down much,” the 1999 USAC National Sprint Car champion chuckled, “We ran another car at Canyon the week before and had to pull it out of the trailer.  We did not have any laps on it when we went out to qualify.  It set us back just a bit, but that car was just as good and as ready as the other car was.  It certainly did not hurt us.”

 In addition to running the 410 Oval Nationals, just last week Darland picked up a ride for the November 6th 360 portion of the show driving for USAC/CRA regular Chris Gansen.  Darland does not know a lot about that car, but he likes what he sees.

 “I know it is a great looking car, but that is about all I know about it,” Darland laughed.  “I do not know much about it, but I do know he has great equipment and some good sponsors on the car.  I see he has Trench Shoring. They (Trench Shoring) have been around racing for a long time.  I know it is good equipment and he has some good help,”

 In addition to his racing chores for the three nights, on Saturday Darland will have his new book, “The People’s Champ, A Racer’s Life” available for fans at an autograph session starting when the gates open at 3:00 PM.  The book details Darland’s life on and off the track and features a forward written by Tony Stewart.  The humble racer is not sure why Bonces Bourcier chose him.

 “Bones came to me first and I was not really prepared for it as I never thought about doing a book,” laughed the driver who won last year’s USAC Midget Turkey Night Grand Prix at The PAS.  “I don’t really see my life outside of racing as very exciting.  Three kids and a wife of 25-years.  It would be a little bit boring I would think, but it came out great.  It has my racing, how I grew up, my heroes and friends throughout the years. It was Bones and the publisher Lew Boyd.  They came over six or eight times and we would do a two or three hour session.  We would talk and they would ask questions.  With their knowledge, it came out great.  Everybody enjoys it and we have sold a lot of them.”

 Tyler Reeser grabbed the early lead in the 20-lap PA Sprint Car feature event.  Ken Duke fell into the runner-up spot behind Reeser.  As the pair set the pace at the front, Michael Kiser began making a charge to the front.  For many laps Kiser battled Adam Carberry for the third spot.  At the end, Reeser took the win over Duke.  Kiser finished ahead of Carberry to claim third.  Phillip Meisner rounded out the top five.  Carbery and Reigle were both heat race winners.   

 Jacob Feltch and Bob Stough brought the Legends Cars to the start for the 20-lap Legends Cars feature race.  Stough took the lead with Feltch close behind.  As the laps wound down, Feltch began to make a move on the leader.  With one to go, Feltch drag raced Stough down the backstretch.  As the duo came out of turn four, Stough led by a car length to take the victory at he end.  Feltch finished second by less than a car length over Chad Earnst.  Greg Burd finished fourth with Chris Transeau finishing fifth.  Stough and Feltch were heat race victors earlier in the day.

SPRINT CAR SUPERSTARS ENTER BUDWEISER OVAL NATIONALS 360 SHOW!
from Scott Daloisio
 (Perris, CA, October 21, 2014)  The early entries are in for the 360-portion of the 19th Annual Budweiser Oval Nationals Presented by All-Coast Construction on November 6th and to say the least, it will be a show fans will not want to miss.  The prelude to the 410 portion of the Oval Nationals on November 7th and 8th, open wheel racing stars are prevalent throughout the first 33 entries in the 360 field.

 The winner of the 360 main event will take home $2,500.00 and that has drawn the attention of top stars from California, Arizona and Indiana.

 “What a super field we have for the 360 Budweiser Oval Nationals this year,” promoter Don Kazarian said on Tuesday afternoon.  “The winner will take home $2,500.00 and that is a great payday for 360’s.  That is obvious by the top stars who have already entered the race this year.  Mike Spencer is the defending champion and he will have to be on his game again to win this one.  Last year the 360 race was fabulous and I expect the same on November 6th.”

 

Hollister’s Ryan Bernal comes over to congratulate Mike Spencer after

Moore Claims Street Stock 50 Lapper in Millers Racing Parts Fall Classic at SSP on Saturday Night
Next Test & Tune on Wednesday, October 22

from Todd Fisher
 Newberrytown, PA (October 18, 2014)  Greg Moore of Six Mile Run took the checkers in the Street Stock main event to earn $1,500 at the Susquehanna Speedway Park on Saturday night.  The Street Stock feature was one of four divisions featured at the 11th Annual Millers Racing Parts Fall Classic presented in part with Insinger Performance Fuels.  Lancasters Donnie Broderick took the lead on lap 37 to win the Xtreme Stock Car 40 lapper.  Matt Chronister of Aspers claimed the victory in the 30-lap Road Warrior feature.  New Oxford?s Richard Wolfe won the exciting  20-lap Mini Van feature event.

 The 50-lap Street Stock feature event began with Jeff Haag leading the first two laps. Jasen Geesaman grabbed the lead on the third circuit.  Geesman continued to lead with Greg Moore close behind in the runner-up spot.  Lap 18 saw Moore take the lead briefly with Geesaman taking back the top spot on the next lap.  Geesaman led four more laps until Moore took the lead for the final time in the race on lap 23.  Moore went on to take the checkered flag.  Geesman lost a driveshaft on the final lap and dropped back quickly.  Jeff Haag came across the line in second, followed by Jim Palm Jr. in a third place podium spot.  Doug Hoffman and Jason Townsend finished fourth and fifth places respectively.  Heat race wins went to Mike Franklin, Greg Moore and Jim Palm Jr.  Gary Potts claimed the win in the 12-lap B-Main.

 The 40-lap Xtreme Stock Car race had Jeremy Stemmel lead the first circuit from the pole position.  Outside front row starter, Craig Wagaman passed Stremmel to take the lead on the next lap.  Wagaman led through the middle stages of the race with Stremmel, Bob Bussey, Wayne Dutterer Jr., Alex Updgraff and Donnie Broderick all swapping positions behind him.  Near the end, Wagaman had a flat tire on lap 36 that sent him to the pits.  Donnie Broderick took over the lead position with Duttterer and Bussey looking for a spot to make their move.  At the finish, Broderick took the win over Dutterer.  Davey Nester moved into the third spot with two to go and finished in third after starting in 19th.  Stremmel settled for a strong fouth place finish as Updegraff rounded out the top five.  Heat race wins went to Michael Goodwin, Craig Wagaman, Kirby Sites and Jeremy Stremmel.  Jed Latshaw won the 15-lap B-Main race.    

 In the 30-lap Road Warriors feature event, Ricky Weaver Jr. took the lead from an outside front row starting position over Matt Chronister.   Weaver handed the lead to Chronister on lap 4 as he retired from the race with engine failure.  Chronister set the pace for the remainder of the race with Kyle Rohrbaugh and Tom Senseney Jr. in tow.  At the finish, Chronister took the win over Rorhbaugh and Senseney in that order.  Daryl Sipe finished fourth with Tim Osheehan rounding out the top five.  Heat race wins went to Chronister, Weaver Jr. and Wellman.

 Richard Wolfe took the checkers in the 15-lap Mini Van feature over Zakari Kitner.  Shawn Crunkilton finished third with Tonya Lance coming across the line in fourth.

 The next Test & Tune for any type of racecar will be on Wednesday, October 22.  The gates will open at 5:00 p.m. with practice sessions rotating for each class from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The cost is $12.00 per person for pit passes and a $20.00 fee for each racecar entering the pit area ($32.00 per car & driver combination).

SUPER LATE MODELS $1500 SHOOTOUT PRESENTED BY TORCO FUELS AT CENTRAL
  Torco Fuels presents the CDM SuperLate Models in  $1500 to win slugfest Saturday night October 18th in Casa Grande.   In their last visit Jason Noll piloted the Total Seal backed 51 machine to victory lane followed by Lonnie Parker and Ricky Thornton Jr.. Thornton who holds the most wins in the Arizona Late Model series will be looking for redemption Saturday night as a motor problems kept him from challenging for the win in his last attempt at the high speed facility. With the winter drivers and fans trickling in and the CAS regulars filling the stands the racing will be electric this Saturday night.

Trevor Miller will be searching for 2 in a row in the X-Mod division after winning the 20 lap feature 2 weeks ago ahead of Nolan Morrow and Scott Starnes.  With points leader Eric Winemiller picking up the win this past Saturday night at Arizona Speedway, every point counts in the South West X-Mod Championships from here on out.

Pure Stock leader Terry Churchwell will lead the Pure Stocks in the Torco Fuels presented evening as the rest of the field has started to come alive late in the season.  Last time on the track a dramatic finish netted Nelson Morrow the win over Michael Huffman and Tyler Mecl.

We will round out the evening presented by Torco Fuels with the rough and racey Bomber division. Steve Soboski leads the bomber division by only 1 point over Mark Farnes and 57 points over Don Berner.  These drivers who are mostly pulling double duty between Central Arizona Speedway and Arizona Speedway have out together epic battles in the 2014 season and will try and continue the steak of side by side racing we have came to expect from these fantastic drivers.

Sagi Claims Late Model 50 Lapper at SSP on Saturday Night
Next Wednesday Night Test & Tune on October 1

From Todd Fisher
Newberrytown, PA (September 27, 2014) Alan Sagi of Hagerstown, Maryland won the 50-lap Late Model feature event presented by Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic at the Susquehanna Speedway Park on Saturday night as part of the 9th Annual Susquehanna Showdown.  Logan Wagner of Harrisonville won the 25-lap PA Sprint Series Interregional feature.

On the initial start of the Late Model 50 lapper, last years winner Sam Gallagher took the early lead from outside the front row.  Chase Billet and Randy Christine Jr. followed the leader waiting for the opportunity to make their move.  On lap 7, lapped traffic began to be a factor for the front runners.  Gallagher got by the first lapped car, but Billet tangled with that car and was forced to retire from the race.  This regrouped the field behind Gallagher as Christine Jr. set his sights on the lead.  Meanwhile, Alan Sagi moved from an eighth place starting spot to sit in third on the lap 7 restart.  A few more caution flags through the midway point of the race forced a fuel stop on lap 28 in order to be able to finish the race.

After the fuel stop, Sagi began to make his charge to the front.  On lap 30, Sagi passed Christine Jr. and immediately began to challenge the leader.  Four laps later, Sagi was able to secure the lead and set the pace for the remainder of the race.  Sagi went on to take the feature by 6 car lengths over Gallagher.  Christine settled for a third place podium finish.  Grant Adams finished strong in fourth with James Jesmer rounding out the top five.  Tommy Salnker, Adams and Christine won the heat races.

In the Sportsman Modified 25-lap feature, Brett Kressley took the lead on the initial start from outside the front row over Kevin Beach.  The event saw on caution flag on lap 21 that bunched up the field for a 5-lap dash to the finish.  On the restart, Kressley continued to set the pace over Beach with a clear speedway in front of him.  Kressley went on to take the checkers over Beach, followed by Shawn Fitzpatrick in third.  Paul Kline and Ken Eckert Jr. finished fourth and fifth places respectively.  Heat race wins went to the Kressley and Beach.

The 20-lap All American Outlaw feature took the restarts to get the race going, but once underway, Carrie Fryfogle took the lead over Hunter Nester.  The next lap, Nester took over the top spot ad never looked back to take the victory over Bryan Green.  Fred Cullum bested Justin Cullum for third at the end.  Early leader, Fryfogle settled for fifth.  Nester and Keim were the heat race victors.

The next Wednesday Night Test & Tune for any type of racecar will be on Wednesday, October 1.   The gates will open at 5:00 p.m. with practice sessions rotating for each class from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.  The cost is $12.00 per person for pit passes and a $20.00 fee for each racecar entering the pit area ($32.00 per car & driver combination).  Each session will be 4-6 laps per session depending on car count.  The grandstands are open free to the public.  Each class will receive 4 to 5 rounds of 4/6 laps each or more if time permits.  The fuel pumps from Miller?s Racing Parts will not be open.  Anyone needing fuel should contact Miller?s Racing Parts directly at 717-766-0181.  The main concession stand will be open throughout the night.

On Saturday night, October 18, racing returns on the ?Big Track with the 11th Annual Millers Racing Parts Fall Classic featuring the Street Stocks, Xtreme Stock Cars, Road Warriors and Mini Vans.   On Saturday, gates will open for the pit area at 1:30 p.m. and the grandstands at 2:00 p.m.  with qualifying action beginning at 4:00 p.m.  The raindate will be Sunday, October 19, if necessary.

Dietrich Runs High Line to Win Inaugural Sprint Car Fall Classic on Sunday Night at SSP
Next Wednesday Night Test & Tune on October 1

 from Todd Fisher
Newberrytown, PA (September 21, 2014)  Gettysburgs Danny Dietrich won his first SSP 410 Sprint Carl feature race of the season at the Susquehanna Speedway Park on Sunday Night.  Curt Michael of Ocean View, Delaware bested the field in the 358/360 Sprint Car Challenge race presented by www.shetronequipment.com and Newville Construction Services.  Zach Overmiller and Mike Zelionis each took victories in the two 8-lap Sidewinder Sprint Car features.

 In the 25-lap 410 Sprint Car feature event, Greg Hodnett took the early lead over Freddie Rahmer.  Rahmer stayed close and within striking distance as the duo entered lapped traffic midway through the race.  A caution on lap 13 closed up the field and gave Hodnett smooth waters in front of him.  On the restart, Danny Dietrich moved around Rahmer to take the runner-up spot and set his sites on Hodnett.  The pair swapped positions up front for three laps until Dietirch finally took command of the top spot on lap 19.  Dietrich went on to claim the checkers over Hodnett and Rahmer.  Lance Dewease finished fourth followed by Mark Smith in fifth.  Heat race wins went to Rahmer, Hodnett and Aaron Ott.  Dave Ely won the consolation race.     

 In the 20-lap 358/360 Sprint Car Challenge race, Mike Walter took the early lead over Robbie Stillwagon with Mark Smith following in third place.  Midway through the race, Smith took the runner-up spot and set his sights on Walter.  Meanwhile, Curt Michael moved into third, coming from a 7th place starting spot.  On lap 13, the three car battle for the lead found Michael in the lead with Walter in second and Smith back to third.  Michael set the pace and took the victory in the race.   With three laps to go, Smith retook the runner-up spot to finish second when Walter slowed with mechanical issues.  Stillwagon came across the line in third, followed by Kyle Reinhardt in fourth and Derrick Locke in fifth place.  Heat victors were Smith, Stillwagon and Michael.  The consolation win went to Ryan Wilson.    

 In the first of two 8-lap Sidewinder Sprint Car features, Brandon Yarlett took the early lead until lap 6 when Austin Quick scooted by taking over the top spot.  At the checkers, it was Quick taking the win over Turk Tabb in second.  Yarlett finished third, followed by Zach Overmiller and Rohan Beasley on fourth and fifth respectively.  Following the race, the top three finishers failed to go to post-race technical inspections, giving the victory to Overmiller.

 The second Sidewinder feature of the night, Mike Zelionis led from start-to-finish and took the victory over Austin Quick.  Rohan Beasley finished in third, followed by Turk Tabb in fourth and Zach Overmiller rounding out the top five.    

On Saturday night, September 27, racing returns on the Big Track with the 9th Annual Susquehanna Showdown that is highlighted with a 50-lap feature for the 358ci Late Models and a 25-lap Sportsman Modified race.  The All-American Outlaws will also make their sole visit to the Newberrytown oval of the year.  The Late Model race is presented by Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic.  The Late Model winner will earn $2,000 for the victory.

The Late Models will qualify through heat races and last chance races.  The top three in each heat will draw individually for their starting position in the 50-lap feature.  The highest SSP point driver not qualifying through the heats or last chance races will be given a provisional 25th place starting spot.  The Late Models will follow the general SSP Late Model spec rules found on the website with the exception that any 11? Hoosier tire is permitted.  There will be a $100.00 entry fee for only the Late Model drivers which will include their pit pass for entry that night.

WILLIAMS WRAPS UP YOUNG GUNS CHAMPIONSHIP - DOUGLASS WINS AGAIN IN SENIOR SPRINTS!

  from Scott Daloisio
(Perris, CA, September 19, 2014)   Victorville, California teenage racer Trent Williams closed his Young Guns Sprint Car career in style by winning the main event and sewing up the 2014 championship last Saturday night in the Glenn Howard Classic at Perris Auto Speedway.  In the companion Senior Sprint Car Class, Bruce Douglass picked up the win and came closer to securing his second championship with two races to go in the season.

 Williams started on the pole in his Victory Race Cars/Sunset Wraps/Continental Auto Body/DSM Motorsports /Pick’s Racing Engine/Circle Track Performance #52 and led every inch of the way in the main event.  Holtville’s George Morris, who had two wins this year, finished second about a half track behind.  Malyssa Young of Oak Hills was the third place finisher and was ecstatic to pick up her first ever racing trophy.



 Victorville’s Trent Williams closed his Young Guns career with a win and a championship and

 The victory and championship capped a great season for Williams who will now move into the USAC/CRA Series beginning with November’s Budweiser Oval Nationals Presented by All Coast Construction.  Williams won four of the seven Young Guns races in 2014.  In the other three races, he had two seconds and a third and he had a 30-point lead over Morris in the final standings.  Lake Forest’s Mitchell Collins was third in the standings with Mikey Lovas of Menifee fourth and Young fifth.

 Douglass, a 63-year-old veteran from Ventura, started third in the Senior (for drivers 45 and old) main event, but he had the lead by the end of the first circuit in the 20-lapper that went green to checkers with no interruptions.   Corona’s Steve Brown was a half-track behind the 2012 champion at the checkered flag.  Ed Schwarz of Santa Fe Springs, 2011 champion Bill Badger of Santa Clarita and Moore, Oklahoma’s Tobey Sampson rounded out the top five.

 Douglass has won five of the first eight main events in 2014 in the Seniors and carries a 32-point advantage over Badger with only the two races on November 7th and 8th at the Oval Nationals to go.  Last year’s champ Rick Hendrix of Palmdale, who missed Saturday’s main after flipping earlier in the night in a USAC/CRA heat race, is third in points, 100 behind Douglass.  Brown and Schwarz are fourth and fifth.

 2012 PAS Senior champion Bruce Douglass of Ventura won his fifth main of the season last Saturday night and leads the championship standings with only two races to go.  Media please feel free to publish this photo and please give credit to Doug Allen.

BALLARD DEBUTS NATIONAL SPRINT CAR HALL OF FAME
“STAY IN SCHOOL”
SPONSORSHIP TOMORROW AT PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY!
from Scott Daloisio
    (Perris, CA, September 12, 2014)   Tomorrow night, September 13th, when Perris Auto Speedway hosts the Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Cars in the Glenn Howard Classic, driver Corey Ballard will be debuting a brand new, important sponsorship.  The Orange, California based racer will be waving the banner of the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame’s “Stay in School Program.”

 The program targets high school and junior high school kids that do not necessarily know what they are going to do once they get out of high school.  The program offers them a chance to further their education in the field of working on race cars.

 “It is a cool deal and I am pretty excited about it,” Ballard said on Thursday afternoon while preparing his car for Saturday’s race at The PAS.  “There are 14 colleges already set up and it will be a place to go for kids to learn how to work on racecars.  It gives them a chance to learn to work on the cars and have a career in the racing industry.  This has been going on for a while and it is very successful.  It is a deal for kids who are interested in doing something like this and a place for them to pursue it.”

 Cory Ballard, show here in action at Perris Auto Speedway in August, is doing things to help kids get an education and get involved in racing.  Media please feel free to publish this photo and please give photo credit to Doug Allen.

 Ballard plans to take his sprint car, the brochures and information around Southern California to get the kids involved.  He will be doing so at career days at high schools, races, car shows and other automotive gatherings in the southern portion of the “Golden State.”  He will kick things off tomorrow night at Perris Auto Speedway, “The Southern California Home of Major League Sprint Car Racing.”

 “We will have some really nice brochures for kids who are interested,” Ballard said.  “It tells them all about the schools and where they are at.  They can come down to the pits after the races, talk to me and pick up a brochure.  They can even sit in my sprint car.  Everyone is welcome to come down and meet us and pick up a brochure tomorrow.”

 Ballard originally got involved in the deal due to a transaction from some time ago.

 “Dan Goodman, who owns the #77 car that R.J. Johnson drives in the USAC Southwest Series, got me involved,” Ballard stated.  “I sold him a micro (midget) years ago.  I ran into him at Perris and he asked me if I would be interested in doing this.  And, I talked with Bob Baker from the Hall of Fame who got me lined up with all of the brochures and stuff.  It is a neat deal.  I also want to use it to promote the sport and promote Perris Auto Speedway.  I will be running into a lot of people and will be letting them know about our sport as well and will try to get them to come out to the races.  ”

 Ballard, the son of long time Southern California First Division Speedway Motorcycle racer Jan Ballard, has a specific group of kids he wants to help.

 “I am looking to try and help foster kids,” he said.  “You know, kids who when they turn 18 are dumped out onto the street.  These kids do not have anything and an astronomical number of them end up in jail.”

 In addition to seeing Ballard in action in the Amsoil USAC/CRA Series tomorrow, fans will also get to watch The PAS Senior & Young Gun Sprints and the California Lightning Sprint Cars.  Spectator gates will open at 5:00 PM and the first race will be at 7:00.

SOUTH WEST MODIFIED CHAMPIONSHIPS AT ARIZONA SPEEDWAY
THE FALL SEASON HEATS BACK UP THIS SATURDAY NIGHT

from ARIZONA SPEEDWAY
The batteries are recharged after an extended break for the South West Modified Championship drivers and the best in the desert will be out this Saturday night.  The IMCA Modifieds , Super Stocks, Neils Garage Cabinets Pure Stocks, Robert Horne Ford Bombers and Lady Stocks will all be out to best the competition at Arizona Speedway this Saturday night.

Cody Graham leads the Modifieds into Saturday nights feature after consistent finishes at both Arizona Speedway and Central Arizona Speedway have gave him the edge over early points leader Brian Schultz and rookie Chaz Baca Jr. .  With the South West Modified division boasting more winners than any other division this year Saturday night is still anyones game with many heavy hitters through out the field including Don Earven  who has been on fire in the last 6 races.

Super Stocks also return after a long break with a $500 to win night in store for the division if they show up with 15 or more cars.  Allen Kelley who is no stranger to winning in this division will look to extend his lead in the points battle as Terry Bridges who finished in 2nd position last race will look to improve one spot and take his first win of the season. Colclasure, both Larry and Michael Brigner and the rest of the Super Stock racers will look to claim the first $500 payday of the 2014 season.

Last week Kevin Parker showed us he likes the season openers as he picked up his second win of 2014 after winning both the spring series opener and fall series opener closing the gap a little between himself and the purple 44 of Arron Hetrick.  Ronnie Sanchez  also helped his points efforts last Saturday night with his first podium of 2014 closing the battle between himself and Anthony Catena .

Robert Horne Ford Bombers began the fall season in the same action packed way as they closed the spring season.  Ben Soboski closed the show with another win in the taxi cab while points leader Michael Brigner  finished in second and stretched his lead.  Mark Farnes  finished in 3rd position and was able to capitalize on misfortunes Virgil McArthur had early in the race the race and helped his quest for a top 3 finish in the 2015 points championship.

The ladies of dirt track will finish the evening as both the dirt dolls and powder puffs are set put another one in the books at Arizona Speedway. Sharon Soboski currently leads the powder puff division and Mrs. Interview herself Shawna Meeks has been dominant so far this season in the dirt doll division.

SENIOR & YOUNG GUN SPRINTS SATURDAY AT PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY 
- WILLIAMS CAN WRAP UP TITLE!

from Scott Daloisio
 (Perris, CA, September 11, 2014)  The PAS Senior and Young Gun Sprint Cars will both be in action at the “Southern California Home of Major League Sprint Car Racing,” Perris Auto Speedway, this Saturday night, September 13th, at the Glenn Howard Classic.  Joining the two divisions on the all open wheel program will be the Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Cars and the California Lightning Sprint Cars.  Spectator gates will open at 5:00 PM with the first green flag of the night at 7:00.

 For the Young Guns, it will be their final race of the 2014 season and Trent Williams, a 17-year-old racer from Victorville, already has one hand firmly locked onto the championship trophy.  Williams carries a 27-point lead over Holtville’s George Morris heading into the finale.  Unless a much larger than normal field shows up on Saturday, all Williams should have to do is start the main event to lock up the crown.

 Victorville’s Trent Williams hopes to wrap up the PAS Young Gun championship at the Glenn Howard Classic at Perris Auto Speedway this Saturday.  He will move up the Amsoil USAC/CRA Series in 2015.  Media, please feel free to publish this photo and please give photo credit to Doug Allen.

 Saturday’s race will be the last time Williams makes a start in the series which is for drivers 14-21.  Like last year’s champ Logan Williams, who is not related to Trent, he will be moving up to the USAC/CRA Series for the 2015 campaign.

 Unlike the Young Guns, the Senior Sprints, for drivers 45-years-old and older, will still have a pair of races at the 19th Annual Budweiser Oval Nationals presented by All Coast Construction left on their 2014 schedule.   Recently turned 63-year-old Bruce Douglass of Ventura holds a 23-point lead over Santa Clarita’s Bill Badger heading into Saturday’s race.  After a slow start to the season, 2013 champion Rick Hendrix of Palmdale is third and only 40-points behind Douglass.  Second year driver Steve Brown of Corona holds down the fourth place spot while retired Riverside dentist Jim Giardina is fifth.   

 Ventura’s Bruce Douglass takes the trophy after winning his fourth PAS Senior main of 2014 on August 16th.  Media, please feel free to publish this photo and please give photo credit to Doug Allen.

 PAS Young Gun Point Standings
1. Trent Williams - Victorville - 348

HOTTEST SPRINT CAR DRIVER IN THE NATION AT PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY THIS SATURDAY


from Scott Daloisio
  (Perris, CA, September 9, 2014) There will only be one place in Southern California to see the hottest sprint car driver in the nation, Damion Gardner, this Saturday night, September 13th, and that place is at the “Southern California Home of Major League Sprint Car Racing,”
Perris Auto Speedway.  The track will be playing host to the popular Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Cars in the Glenn Howard Classic.  Not only is the affable driver the hottest, but now he is also the only driver in history to go over 200-MPH in a sprint car as he did earlier this week on the Bonneville Salt Flats.  Joining the USAC/CRA Series on the all open wheel program will be The PAS Senior & Young Gun Sprints and the California Lightning Sprints Cars.  Spectator gates will open at 5:00 PM with racing at 7:00.

 Gardner, who lives northeast of San Francisco in Concord, California, has run rough shod over the USAC/CRA competition thus far in 2014.  The two time and defending series champ has a bulging 242-point lead over five-time series king Mike Spencer in the championship standings.  The slender driver also leads the series in victories and has won 10 of the first 17 main events this year.  No other driver has won more than one.


 Current point leader Damion Gardner of Concord will be after his 11th win of 2014 this Saturday night at Perris Auto Speedway.
All photos by  Doug Allen.


 While he has been dominant throughout the campaign, at no time was it more apparent than the three races run last Thursday, Friday and Saturday at Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, Ocean Speedway in Watsonville and Santa Maria Speedway.  He swept the shows (fast qualifier, won his heats and the main events) at both Chico and Watsonville and won the main event at Santa Maria within a 48-hour period.   To put more emphasis on the domination, he set new one lap track records in qualifying at both Chico and Ocean.



 Young Brody Roa of Buena Park is third in the USAC/CRA standings. 
He was fast qualifier last Saturday night at the Santa Maria Speedway.


 “I don’t know what you can say about Damion Gardner,” Perris Auto Speedway promoter Don Kazarian said.  “He is amazing.  One of the best and most spectacular racers on the track not only today, but over the decades as well.  He is fast, fearless and in it to win it.  He is so determined to get to the front, he just makes it happen not only here, but on every track on the circuit.”

 To add to Gardner’s legacy, last year he took a sprint car to the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah and became the “World’s Fastest Sprint Car Driver,” by going more than 193-MPH.  He shattered that speed earlier this week when he went over 211-MPH at Bonneville. Thus, he is not only the “World’s Fastest Sprint Car Driver,” but also the only driver to go over 200-MPH in a sprint car.

 Fans can see Gardner and all of the other USAC/CRA stars in a program that will include qualifying, heat races, a B main (if applicable) and a 30-lap A main event at The PAS this Saturday.


 Five-time USAC/CRA champion Mike Spencer of Temecula is
 second to Damion Gardner in the championship standings.

FINAL SPRINT CAR RACE AT PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY UNTIL
NOVEMBER’S BUDWEISER OVAL NATIONALS THIS SATURDAY!

 FROM Scott Daloisio
(Perris, CA, September 10, 2014)  Race fans from around the west will get their final look at the popular Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series before November’s 19th Annual Budweiser Oval Nationals presented by All Coast Construction this Saturday night, September 13th, when Perris Auto Speedway presents the annual Glenn Howard Classic.  After Saturday, fans will have to wait two months before seeing another sprint car race at the famous Riverside County half-mile clay oval.  In addition to the USAC/CRA cars, the PAS Senior & Young Gun Sprints and the California Lightning Sprint Cars will also be in action.  Spectator gates will open at 5:00 PM with racing at 7:00.

“Saturday will be the final time these guys get to race before the Oval Nationals and the last time fans will get to see sprint cars here for nearly two months,” Perris promoter Don Kazarian said on Wednesday morning.  “The
Southern California Fair comes in during October and we have one stock car race late in the month and then it is time for the Ovals.  If teams want to try anything in live competition, Saturday will be there last chance to do it.”

In addition to it being the last sprint car race at The PAS before the Oval Nationals, it will be the last race in the series before then as well.  After Saturday, teams will have two months off to prepare their cars for their highest paying race of the 2014 season.  The Oval Nationals will pay $20,000.00 to win and $1,000.00 to start the November 8th finale.  The total purse for the race stands at over $91,000.00.

In addition to Saturday’s race being an important tune-up, the fact that it honors Glenn Howard is not lost on anyone.

“This is a big race for everyone involved,” Kazarian said.  “Glenn Howard meant so much too so many people for decades.  He was a driver, owner, innovator and official.  Such an important part of the history of open wheel- racing in Southern California.  All of the drivers want to win the race named after him and will put extra emphasis on getting to the checkered flag first.  It would be a big honor for them to have their name on the winner’s list of this event.  They will be running hard all night.”

The car Glenn Howard drove in 1964.  Saturday’s race will honor the late driver, owner, innovator and official.

After Saturday’s race at The PAS, the USAC/CRA Series will only have four dates remaining in 2014.  November 7th & 8th at the Oval Nationals and November 14th & 15th at the 14th Annual Hose Advantage Hall of Fame Classic at Canyon Speedway in Peoria, Arizona.

SSP Track Championships to be Decided on Saturday Night, September 13
Kids Night and Figure 8 Racing Final Rescheduled for Saturday Night;
Next Wednesday Night Test & Tune on September 17

from Todd Fisher
 Newberrytown, PA (September 9, 2014) ? On Saturday night, September 13, racing action returns to the Big Track at SSP with Track Championship Night.  Racing action will include the Late Models Street Stocks, Xtreme Stocks Cars, Road Warriors, Mini Vans and PA Sprint Series.  Track champions will be crowned in the Late Models, Street Stocks, Xtreme Stocks, Road Warriors, Mini Vans and PA Sprint Series divisions.  There will also be a special championship awards presentation for the drivers of the Summer Shoot-Out Series at the Outback Track.    The final race for the Figure 8 division has been rescheduled for Saturday, September 13 to decide the track champion.

 The wives, girlfriends and mothers of the SSP drivers will also host a Kids Night at SSP on Saturday night.  There will be games, face painting, driver Meet & Greets, School Bus rides and more before the racing activities start in the front parking lot area.  There will also be lots of prizes (including at least 17 bicycles) and giveaways for the kids.  Festivities will begin at 4:00 p.m. until the racing begins.

 The Late Model Track Championship will be decided on Saturday night.  There are two drivers in contention to with the coveted Billet Cup, in honor of the late seven-time track champion Carl Billet.  The J.R. Rodriguez leads Randy Christine Jr. by 84 points.  Rodriguez simply needs to take the green flag for the qualifying heat race to clinch the championship and add his name to the Billet Cup.

 The Street Stock Track Championship is much closer as Jasen Geesaman leads Scott Thunberg by 7 points in the season-long battle.  Geesaman is vying for his first SSP Track Championship as Thunberg is looking for his third career SSP title after winning them in 1998 and 2009.  Jimmy Combs and Chris Derr have a long shot for the title and are only able to have a chance if either Geesaman and Thunberg do not take the green flag in the heat and feature event.    

 The SSP Xtreme Stock Car Track Championship will also come down to the final lap of the feature event as only two points separate Davey Nester and Patrick McClane.  Like Geesaman, Nester is looking for his career first SSP track title as McClane is seeking his third title in the past five seasons (2010 & 2012).  Johnny Palm has an outside chance at the title, should Nester and McClane drastically falter on Saturday night.   

 Three-time Road Warrior Track Champion (2010, 2011 & 2013) Daryl Sipe, seeks his fourth championship in five season and holds a 60 point lead over 2012 Road Warrior Champion Curt McDade with one race remaining on Saturday.  If Sipe takes the green flag in either the heat or feature race, he will clinch the championship.

 The battle for the Mini Van Track Championship is nonexistent if Zakari Kitner takes the green flag in the feature event.  Last season, Kitner and Donny Groff were declared co-champions as they were tied even after all tiebreaker scenarios were exhausted.  Richard Wolfe would be champion if Kitner fails to make the call for the feature.      

 In the PA Sprint Series, Mike Wagner II holds a 44 point lead over Colby Dice.  Last season, Wagner
s brother, Logan was the 2013 PA Sprint Series SSP Track Champion.

 Two points separate Darryl Kump II and Dennis Dorosz for the SSP title in the Figure 8 division.

 Brian Gagliardo is the 2014 SSP PENNMAR Vintage Car Track Champion as there are no races for the division remaining this season.   

 Track Championships will also be determined at a later date for the following: 410 Sprints (November 16); 358 Sprint Cars (November 16); Sidewinder Sprints (October 25); Sportsman Modifieds (October 25); Legends Cars (October 25) and Classic Cars (November 1).

 On Saturday the times will change for the fall racing hours. The pit gates will open at 3:30 p.m. Grandstand gates will open at 4:00 p.m. Track Prep laps begin at 5:40 p.m. with qualifying races at 6:00 p.m. followed by consolation races and feature events.

 General Admission Grandstand ticket prices for Saturday night are Adults (ages 18-59) $14.00; Young Adults (ages 11-17) & Senior Adults (60 & Older) $12.00; Children (10 & under) are free.  Pit pass prices are $25.00 with a reduced price of $22.00 for all pit competitor license holders.  The minimum age requirement to purchase a pit pass is 12 years of age with a copy of a birth certificate is required for all ages 12 to 14.  

 The next Wednesday Night Test & Tune for any type of racecar will be on Wednesday, September 17.   The gates will open at 5:00 p.m. with practice sessions rotating for each class from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.  The cost is $12.00 per person for pit passes and a $20.00 fee for each racecar entering the pit area ($32.00 per car & driver combination).  Each session will be 4-6 laps per session depending on car count.  The grandstands are open free to the public.  Each class will receive 4 to 5 rounds of 4/6 laps each or more if time permits.  The fuel pumps from Miller?s Racing Parts will not be open.  Anyone needing fuel should contact Miller?s Racing Parts directly at 717-766-0181.  The main concession stand will be open throughout the night.

360/358 Sprint Car Challenge Race Replaces ARDC Midgets at SSP on Sunday, September 21
ARDC Sanction Dropped from Candy Bowl on Saturday, October 25
 with Wingless Midgets Still on the Card

from Todd Fisher
 Newberrytown, PA (August 27, 2014) The Inaugural Sprint Car Fall Classic on Sunday night, will now see a 360/358 Sprint Car Challenge race replacing the ARDC Midgets.  The headliner that evening will be the 410 Super Sprint Cars along with a special appearance of the Sidewinder Sprint Cars.

 The Super 410 Sprint Car feature will pay $3,500-to-win for the 25-lap feature event.  Non-qualifiers for the A-Main feature will receive a complimentary non-transferrable entry fee ($50.00 value) for the Final Showdown to be held at SSP in November.  For the Super Sprint Cars, mufflers WILL NOT be required and Hoosier Brand Spec Tires will be required on all four corners (same as the 2014 rules at Williams Grove, Lincoln and Port Royal Speedways).  All other rules will follow the generally accepted rules for Sprint Cars at local weekly Central PA Sprint Car tracks (1400 pounds weight rule).  Raceivers will be mandatory for all Sprint Cars.

 The 358/360 Sprint Car feature will pay $2,000-to-win for the 20-lap feature event.  The race will pay $200 to start.  Non-qualifiers for the A-Main feature will receive a complimentary non-transferrable entry fee ($50.00 value) for the Final Showdown to be held at SSP in November. Mufflers WILL NOT be required.  For all cars, the following tires are permitted - Hoosier Brand Spec Tires will be required on all four corners (same as the 2014 rules at Williams Grove, Lincoln and Trailways Speedways), URC2, MC@, or Selinsgrove track tire.  All other rules of the Central PA 358 Sprint Cars will prevail for 358 cars this event.  All cars competing may use ASCS top wing rule and the minimum weight for all cars with driver is 1,475 pounds.  An event flyer with full purse may be found at www.sspracing.net.

 The mutual decision to replace the ARDC Midgets on Sunday was a difficult choice for Todd Fisher, SSP owner and the ARDC representative Jerry Steward. There are many good people within the organization that I respect and like.  The ARDC group as a whole is very challenging to deal with and have some fundamental organization problems. Fisher explained.  There are many reasons that have led to this decision.  It was not a knee-jerk reaction.  The reasons include the numerous leadership changes over the past few seasons, instability in car count and other speedways being given special deals to run the ARDC Midgets. I signed a sanction agreement in the Spring and have yet to have a returned copy signed by an ARDC representative returned to me.  It is now the end of the summer.  This is one of the many fundamental issues with the internal workings of the organization.

 The on-track action of wingless midget racing was never an issue other than the concern of the newly appointed scheduling director, Jerry Steward expressing his concern that Drivers dont want race on a horse@#&$racetrack following the Sprint Cars and burn off four tires in one race.  That comment was the final straw that led to Fisher dropping the ARDC Midgets from the September 21 event.  Jerry and I both mutually agreed that it would not be in the best interest of anyone if he and the drivers felt that way in competing with the 410 Sprint Cars on the same card.  Even though Steward offered Fisher a Special Deal for SSP, Fisher declined to continue with the ARDC sanctioning.

 The wingless Midgets will remain on the same card for the popular Candy Bowl X presented by J&K Salvage, just without the ARDC sanctioning.  Purse details for the open competition midget event will be released in the near future.

 Fisher concluded, I hope that the ARDC group with its 75-year tradition of great racing can get its off-track act together.  As a supporter of the group over the last 10 years and seeing many internal changes within the group, I wish them the best and we will see what the future between us and the group.

 On Sunday, September 21, the pit gates will open at 3:30 p.m. Grandstand gates will open at 4:00 p.m. Track Prep laps begin at 5:30 p.m. with qualifying races at 6:00 p.m. followed by consolation races and feature events.

 DOUGLASS WINS 4TH SENIOR MAIN - MORRIS GETS 2ND YOUNG GUN WIN AT PERRIS AUTO SPDWY!
 from Scott Daloisio
(Perris, CA, August 22, 2014)   2012 PAS Senior Sprint Car champion Bruce Douglass of Ventura won his fourth main of the year and took another step towards his second championship last Saturday night at Perris Auto Speedway.  In the companion Young Gun main event, Holtville’s George Morris took his second ever win in the class designed for drivers from 14-21 years of age.

 In the 20-lap Senior main for drivers 45 and older, Douglass, in the Victor Davis owned Lucas Oil #13, took the win after starting third in the 11-car field.  Douglass, who turned 63-just four days after the race, was chased across the line by Santa Fe Springs driver Ed Schwarz, Santa Clarita’s Bill Badger, who was coming off a two race win streak, Palmdale’s Rick Hendrix and heat race winner Steve Brown of Corona.

 After six races of the Senior campaign, Douglass’ four wins tops the charts followed by Badger with two and defending series champ Hendrix with one.

 Morris seemed destined to finish second to Lake Elsinore’s Parker Colston in the 15-lap Young Guns main.  Trying to win his second main in a row, Colston built up a good sized lead and every time there was a caution, he would pull away from the field.  However, he broke late in the main and that put 19-year-old Morris on the point and he led the remainder of the way to post the win in the Morris Farms/Desert Glass Cory Kruseman owned #3K. Jared Blondel of Orange, who was making his PAS Young Gun debut, was second.  Point leader Trent Williams of Victorville was third, with Lake Forest’s Mitchell Collins and Maylssa Young of Oak Hills rounding out the top five.

 Colston won the Young Gun heat race.

 Through the first six Young Gun races of the year, Williams leads the series with three wins.  Morris is second with two and Colston has one.

 The Young Guns will wrap up their 2014 campaign at the Glenn Howard Memorial at The PAS on September 13th.  The Seniors still have three races remaining.  September 13th and the final two nights of the 19th Annual Budweiser Oval Nationals presented by All Coast Construction on November 7th and 8th.

PARNELLI JONES NAMED GRAND MARSHAL OF THE TURKEY NIGHT GRAND PRIX!
  from Scott Daloisio
(Perris, CA, August 19, 2014)  Last Saturday night at Perris Auto Speedway, promoter Don Kazarian announced to the large crowd at the USAC/CRA Sprint Car race that American racing icon Parnelli Jones would be the Grand Marshal of the 74th running of the Turkey Night Grand Prix on Thanksgiving night.  The occasion will mark the 50th anniversary of Jones first win in the famous midget race at legendary Ascot Park in Gardena, California.

 “It is an honor to have Parnelli Jones as the Grand Marshal of the Turkey Night Grand Prix,” Kazarian reaffirmed from his office on Monday afternoon.  “He is one of the greatest drivers in the history of American auto racing.  He was a proven winner in jalopies, sprint cars, midgets, road racing, NASCAR and Indy Cars.  He could drive the wheels off anything he sat in.”

 Jones, who lives in Rolling Hills Estates, copped his first win in the prestigious Midget race just one year after winning the Indianapolis 500 while driving for legendary race car owner and promoter J.C. Agajanian.  Ironically, Agajanian’s three sons, Cary, J.C. Jr. and Chris, oversee the Turkey Night Grand Prix to this day.

 Kazarian said Parnelli will not be the only member of the family who will be attending the Thanksgiving night race.
 “Parnelli and his entire family will be coming,” Kazarian said.  “His wife, sons and grandchildren will all be there.”

 The Turkey Night Grand Prix is the longest running and most prestigious midget race in the world. Started in 1934 at Gilmore Stadium in Hollywood, which is now the site of CBS Studios, according to Kazarian, Turkey Night is the “second longest running race in the nation.”  It only ranks behind the Indianapolis 500 when it comes to longevity.

 “The list of winners of the Turkey Night Grand Prix is quite impressive,” Kazarian stated.  “Among the notables that have won the race you have Parnelli (2), A.J. Foyt (2), Bill Vukovich, Tony Bettenhausen (2), Gary Bettenhausen, Stan Fox (2), Tony Stewart, Jason Leffler, Billy Boat (3), Bubby Jones, Ron Shuman (8), defending champion Dave Darland (2) and many, many others.  Two years ago when Turkey Night first returned to The PAS, current NASCAR Sprint Cup sensation Kyle Larson took the win.  With drivers like these, if your name is etched onto the famous Aggie trophy you know you have achieved a major racing accomplishment.”

 Fans can receive a $10.00 per ticket discount for the 74th Running of the Turkey Night Grand Prix by purchasing their tickets in advance by October 31st.  They can be obtained at The PAS souvenir stand on a race night, by phone at 1-800-595-4849 or online by clicking on the following link: http://pas.tix.com/Schedule.aspx?OrgNum=7

  SSP Outback Track Summer Shoot-Out Series Friday Night Results
  Next Wednesday Night Test & Tune on September 3

 from Todd Fisher
   Newberrytown, PA (August 16, 2014)  Dovers Larry Baer took his first win of the season in the 25-lap Late Model feature at the Susquehanna Speedway Park on Saturday Night.  Colby Dice captured his first career feature victory in the exciting 20-lap PA Sprint Car feature race.  Jim Palm Jr. of Jasen Geesaman of Loysville won his first Street Stock feature of the season in the 20-lapper.  Yorks Patrick McClane claimed his sixth Xtreme Stock Car feature win of 2014.  Yorks Ricky Weaver Jr. won his sixth Road Warrior feature of the year.  Dillsburg?s John Kitner won his third Mini Van feature of the season.  The Camera & Autograph Night before the PA Sprint Car feature included 96 racecars from the six classes of racing.  During the successful Central PA Blood Drive, thirty-one people participated in the event that took in more than 21 pints of blood.

 Outside front row starter Larry Baer took the lead at the start of the 25-lap Late Model feature with Chase Billet in tow.  Randy Christine Jr. made it a three car race for the lead on lap 3 when he moved past Cameron Benyou.  The race remained caution-free until lap 20 when Billet stopped in turn two with a mechanical failure.  This put Christine Jr. on the rear bumper for the restart.  When the race resumed, Baer continued to lead and was flawless to the finish to take the win.  Christine Jr. finished second with Benyou coming across the line in third.  Grant Adams finished strong in fourth with J.R. Rodriguez completing the top five.  Chase Billet and Adams were the heat race winners.

 Colby Dice grabbed the lead from the front row at the start of the 20-lap PA Sprint Car feature.  As Dice set the pace at the front, Mike Wagner Jr. began his drive to the front from a fifth place starting spot.  On lap 12, Wagner moved into the runner-up spot by getting around Anthony Fiore.  As Dice and Wagner came upon lapped traffic, the caution lap flew on lap 15.  With a five lap dash to the finish, Wagner applied heavy pressure but could not make the pass for the win as Dice claimed victory.  Fiore finished third with Kyle Lloyd in fourth.  Ken Duke rounded out the top five at the end.  Dice and Fiore won their respective heat races.

 From the front row, Jim Palm Jr. took early lead of the Street Stock 20-lap feature.  Six cars remained in the lead pack for the first half of the race.  After the midway point of the race, the leaders encountered lapped traffic.  Contact was made among the leaders and the lapped cars, sending everyone scattering on lap 13.  Jason Townsend who was running second at the time suffered a mechanical failure, thus bringing out the caution flag.  On the restart, Palm received heavy pressure from Jasen Geesaman.  Two more caution late in the race bunched up the field, however Palm never faltered and went on the claim his first win of the season over Geesaman.  Chris Derr finished in third.  Scott Thunberg came across the line in fourth with Jimmy Combs claiming the fifth place finishing position.  Palm, Geesaman and Derr were heat race victors.   

 The 20-lap Xtreme Stock Car feature event had John Frye take command of the top spot on the start from outside the front row.  Dan Snyder challenged until the midway point of the race when Patrick McClane moved by Snyder into the runner-up spot.  Frye continued to lead with McClane stalking.  As the pair entered lapped traffic with two laps to go, Frye was pinned behind the lapped car as McClane scooted into the lead.  At the finish, McClane took the win over Frye.  Johnny Palm came home in third, followed by Matt Wampler in fourth.  Jim Jacobs finished a respectable fifth.  The heat race winners were Alex Updegraff and Snyder.        

 Ricky Weaver Jr. led the first lap of the Road Warrior 15-lapper from the sixth place starting position. One caution flag bunched up the field, but it was not enough for anyone else to take the lead as Weaver took the checkers at the finish of the race.  Tom Senseney took the runner-up spot with one lap to go to cross the finish line ahead of Robert Wellman who finished third.  Brian Lefebvre and Coty Marsh finished fourth and fifth respectively.  Senseney and Coty Marsh were heat race winners.

 John Kitner took the lead at the start of the 12-lap Mini Van feature that saw the vans four wide entering turn one at the start. Kitner set the pace after lap one and went on to take the win unchallenged.   Shawn Crunkilton and Zakari Kitner finished second and third respectively after battling during the entire race.  Richard Wolfe amd Daryl Kump II rounded out the top five.

DAMION GARDNER BRINGING WORLD’S FASTEST SPRINT CAR TO
PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY THIS SATURDAY

   from  Scott Daloisio
(Perris, CA, August 14, 2014)  The “World’s Fastest Sprint Car Driver,” Damion Gardner, will be bringing the “World’s Fastest Sprint Car,” to put on display for the fans at the “California Racer’s Hall of Fame Night” featuring the Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Cars, PAS Senior Sprints, PAS Young Gun Sprints and the California Lightning Sprint Cars at Perris Auto Speedway this Saturday, August 16th .  Spectator gates will open at 5:00 pm and the first race will be at 7:00.

 The car, known as the “Green Demon,” which went 194.27 during 2013 Speed Week on the Bonneville Salt Flats, was slated to try to break the 200-MPH barrier this week, but the 2014 edition of Speed Week was canceled by rain.

 “It will give the fans something else to look at while they are at the races,” the two-time USAC/CRA champion said by phone from his Concord home on Wednesday night.  “I just wanted to bring it down so everybody could see it and see what it is all about.  They see pictures, but this way they can see it in person.  It is a cool car that has a lot of old school body work hammered out of aluminum that was done by the Victory Race Car guys.  Whatever we can do to get fans out to the races helps.”

 The way the fans will see the car is exactly the way it was set up to run this week at Bonneville before rain intervened.

 “It hasn’t even been out of the trailer,“ Gardner laughed.  “How the fans see the car sitting there on Saturday is virtually how it was going to make the first run at Bonneville.”

 Perris Auto Speedway promoter Don Kazarian is very appreciative that Gardner has not only gone out of his way to get the car to the track this week, but for all of his interactions and his willingness to please the fans.

 “We really appreciate and thank Damion for doing this,” Kazarian said.  “He knows most local fans will never have a chance to see this famous car close up so he has taken it upon himself to see that they do.  He is doing it for the fans.  He is a very fan conscious driver and is always willing to do what it takes on the track or before or after the races off the track to make sure they have a good time.”

 While the car will be silent at The PAS, Gardner is looking forward to another shot at going fast in it in early September.

 “We are working on taking it back there (to Bonneville) in September,” Gardner said.  “I have races at Watsonsville and Santa Maria that weekend (first weekend in September).  I will do another kamikaze run to get to Bonneville and run the car on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.  That is only three weeks away though so the salt is going to have to do a lot of drying out.  We are not going to go if it is risky at all and waste a trip again.  Hopefully it will dry out and we will be able to get there.”   

 For more information on The PAS call: (951) 940-0134.

 Camping for all events at The PAS is available for $25.00 per night.  The campground will open at noon on Friday.  Tailgating in the spectator parking lot will begin at 1:00 PM for all PAS events as well.

SPRINT CARS RETURN TO PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY THIS SATURDAY
 from Scott Daloisio
(Perris, CA, August 11, 2014)  It will be a huge night of sprint car racing when Perris Auto Speedway hosts the “California Racer’s Hall of Fame Night” featuring the Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Cars, PAS Senior Sprints, PAS Young Gun Sprints and the California Lightning Sprint Cars this Saturday, August 16th .  In addition, several of the sport’s biggest stars from days gone by will be on hand to meet fans and sign autographs before the races.  Also before the races, the track will honor National Sprint Car Hall of Fame mechanic Bruce Bromme Jr. who passed away in his sleep last week.  Spectator gates will open at 5:00 PM and the first race will be at 7:00.

 In addition to the normal purse for the USAC/CRA drivers, nearly $4,000.00 extra has been added.  Saturday’s fastest qualifier will pick up an additional $500.00 and there is nearly $3,500.00 added to the main event purse in lap money.

 Concord’s Damion Gardner, who was at Bonneville last weekend trying to go 200-MPH before the event got rained out, comes into Saturday’s race as the series point leader.  The defending and two-time series champion leads 5-time series champ Mike Spencer of Temecula and Huntington Beach’s Nic Faas, who are tied for second, by 111-points.  Of the first six races staged at The PAS this year, Gardner has won four of them while Spencer and Faas are still looking for their first win at the famous half-mile clay oval in 2014.  Other winners at The PAS this year are Yorba Linda’s Matt Mitchell and Richard Vander Weerd of Visalia.

 Spencer will have some extra incentive to win on Saturday as Bromme, who is regarded by many as one of the greatest mechanics in the history of the sport, was his long standing crew chief.  Bromme will be saluted with an emotional memorial lap before the races.  National Sprint Car Hall of Famer Jimmy Oskie will be behind the wheel of a Bromme wrenched car driven by Bromme’s lifelong and late friend Dean Thompson in the 1980’s.

 In the track sports bar before the race, CRA legends Rick Goudy, Eddie Wirth, Don Thomas Sr., Mike Sweeney, Stan Atherton, John Redican, Dennis Rea and Steve Howard will be on hand and to sign autographs and meet the fans.  Several other past stars are expected to participate as well.

BIG JUMP IN BUDWEISER OVAL NATIONLS PURSE!
   from Scott Daloisio
(Perris, CA, August 6, 2014)  Hard as it is to believe, America’s premiere traditional sprint car race, the 19th Annual Budweiser Oval Nationals presented by All Coast Construction, is only three months away and promoter Don Kazarian is pleased to announce a hefty increase in the race purse.  The total purse is $91,000.00 with the winner taking $20,000.00.  The race will pay $1,000.00 to start.

 America’s premiere traditional sprint car race, the Oval Nationals is also the biggest motorsports event in Riverside County.  This year’s edition will feature the USAC West Coast and Southwest Sprint Cars on November 6th and the USAC Amsoil National and CRA Sprint Cars on November 7th and 8th.  The PAS Senior Sprints and California Lightning Sprint Cars will also be in action on the 7th and 8th.

 The $20,000.00 winner’s share of the purse from the 40-lap main event on November 8th is up from the $15,000.00 it paid to win in 2013.  The total purse for the 410 portion of the show and the entry blank are posted at the end of this press release.

 In addition to Saturday’s big money payday, Friday’s preliminary main will pay $5,000.00 to win and $500.00 to start.  The total purse is $91,115.00 for the two nights of racing.  A separate purse will be announced for the Thursday night 360 portion of the program featuring the USAC West Coast and Southwest Sprint Car Series.’

 “This is great news for drivers and fans alike,” promoter Don Kazarian said with a grin.  “This will once again elevate the Oval Nationals into one of if not the best paydays in traditional sprint car racing and it should add some more top drivers to what already is a superstar field.  It is a win win-win situation for everyone involved.  The racing at the Oval Nationals is always off the hook and this should make it even better as hard as that is to believe.  There is so much prestige associated with winning the Oval Nationals from the bragging rights to the much sought after eagle trophies to the winning owner & driver and the winning crew chief gets the Ray Scheetz Award.  Now throw in a minimum of $20,000.00 for the win on the final night.”

 Three time Oval Nationals champion Dave Darland of Lincoln, Indiana (on the inside) and Noblesville, Indiana’s Bryan Clauson fight for the lead at the 2013 Ovals that Darland eventually won.  Media please feel free to publish this photo and please give photo credit to Doug Allen.

 The jump in the purse comes from presenting sponsor All Coast Construction.

 “Mike Grosswendt, who owns All Coast Construction, is probably more passionate about 410 sprint car racing than anyone I know,” Kazarian said.  “His voice exudes his love of the sport when you talk to him.  He called and said he wanted to bump the purse up for the Oval Nationals and he jumped in with both feet.  This means a lot to everyone involved from the drivers to the fans and everyone in between.  A huge thank you is in order to “Big Mike.”

 Camping for all events at The PAS is available for $25.00 per night.  The campground will open at noon on Friday.  Tailgating in the spectator parking lot will begin at 1:00 PM for all PAS events as well.

Rodriguez.  Benyou led the first 19 laps until a slight bobble allowed Christine to scoot by.  Benyou challenged back, but got into the rear of the leader and spun.  On the restart, Rodriguez attempted to challenge Christine for the lead, but could not make the winning pass as Christine took the checkers over Rodriguez.  Kyle Martin made a late race runt ot he front to collect third over Chase Billet in fourth and Baer in fifth.  Matt Murphy and Martin were the heat race winners.

 From outside the front row, Danny Beard took early lead of the Street Stock 20-lap feature.  Chris Derr and Jasen Geesaman quickly began applying heavy pressure to Beard.  Numerous yellows for single car spins made the job much more difficult for Beard however he continued to drive flawlessly to hold off all challengers on the restarts.  On lap 18, contact between Scott Thunberg and Jasen Geesaman caused a 9-car pileup behind them.  On the restart, Beard encountered mechanical failure and retired from the race.  This handed the lead to Chris Derr with two laps to go as he went on to take the victory over Geesaman.  Jimmy Combs finished strong in third, followed by Scott Thunberg and Jason Townsend rounding out the top five.  Brian Walls, Danny Beard and Jim Plam Jr. were heat race victors.

 Dennis Dorosz took the lead on the start of the Road Warrior 15-lapper with Travis Brown close behind.  Ricky Weaver moved into the runner-up spot on lap 5 and began to track down Dorosz.  Midway through the race on lap 8 Weaver took the top spot and went on to win the race.  Dorosz settled for a strong finish in the runner-up position.  Daryl Sipe came across the finish line in third.  Tim Osheehan and Brown rounded out the top five.  Weaver, Brown and Osheehan were heat race winners.

 Roy Denike took the lead at the start of the 12-lap Mini Van feature and never looked back to stop Zakari Kitners win streak.  Kitner finished second with Darryl Kump claiming third.  Richard Wolfe and John Kitner finished fourth and fifth respectively.

 Michael Gebhart claimed the 12-lap Junior Road Warrior feature.

 Both the Susquehanna Speedway Park and Silver Spring Speedway began racing back in 1954.  Both tracks have a long history of great racing and could be considered sister tracks as they ran many of the same divisions throughout the years.  They were even both owned and operated by members of the Kreitzer family at one time or another.   Silver Spring Speedway owners Will Kreitzer owned and operated Susquehanna for two years (1969 & 1970) and his son Alan did the same from 1990 to 1992.  Today, Silver Spring Speedway no longer exists however many of its drivers now call Susquehanna Speedway Park home.

BADGER WINS 2ND SENIOR MAIN IN A ROW -
 COLSTON GETS 1ST YOUNG GUN WIN
AT PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY!

from Scott Daloisio
 (Perris, CA, July 9, 2014)   It took Bill Badger more than three seasons to win his first ever Perris Auto Speedway Senior main event, but he now has won the last two in a row.  In the accompanying PAS Young Gun main event on July 4th, newly turned 16-year old Parker Colston dominated the race for his first victory of 2014.

 In the 20-lap Senior main for drivers 45 and older, Badger, who won the first ever PAS Senior championship three years ago, started on the outside of the front row with 2013 champion Rick Hendrix to his left.  At the previous race, Badger, with the normal Ventura engine in the car, passed Hendrix for the win and when the Kevin Winters green flag opened the 20-lap main event in front of the near capacity holiday crowd, Badger was again in front of Hendrix.  .  The top two stayed that way until Hendrix, a three time USAC champion from Palmdale, trapped Badger behind a lapped car and raced around him for the lead late in the race.  At that point it looked as though Hendrix had the race in the bag.  He took the white flag in the lead and maintained the top spot all the way until turn four where a lapped car got sideways in front of the leaders and nearly took out Hendrix.     Santa Clarita’s Badger, who once again had the Ventura engine in the in the white Badger Brothers Racing #75. took full advantage and pounced on the situation.  He drove back by Hendrix and into the lead and led the final half straightaway for his second PAS win in a row.  Hendrix recovered to finish second with 2012 series champion Bruce Douglass of Ventura third.  San Diego’s Jess Denome finished fourth and Royal Adderson, a native of Calgary, Alberta, Canada who lives in Moreno Valley, fifth.

 64-tear-old Bill Badger won his second straight PAS Senior main event in a row on July 4th. 

 While Badger’s victory was a nail biter in the Senior main, Colston’s victory was the exact opposite.  The Lake Elsinore based teen led all 15-laps on the famous Riverside County half-mile clay oval.  A late race yellow made the finish closer than what the bulk of the race looked like, but Colston was clearly in command in the Richard Gore/Jim Ruth/Circle Track Performance #64 from start to finish.  Series point leader Trent Williams of Victorville was second with Holtville’s George Morris third, Mikey Lovas of Menifee fourth and Maylssa Young of Oak Hills fifth.

TOP ARIZONA STARS ENTER HORNETS NEST AT USAC/CRA RACE AT
PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY ON JULY 4TH!

from Scott Daloisio
 (Perris, CA, JULY 2, 2014)  With a week off from their busy USAC Southwest schedule in Arizona, two top stars in the series, RJ Johnson and Josh Pelkey, are headed west to challenge the Amsoil USAC/CRA regulars in the “Firecracker 40” at Perris Auto Speedway on Friday night, July 4th.  The PAS Senior and Young Gun Sprints and the California Lightning Sprint Cars will also be in action.  At intermission, there will be a giant fireworks sky concert courtesy of the City of Perris and Budweiser.  Spectator gates will open at 3:00 PM and the first race will be at 7:00.

 Heading into last week’s race at Arizona’s Prescott Valley Raceway, Johnson and Pelkey had won the last four main events in the series and they were ranked first and second in the championship standings.  The newly married Johnson finished sixth at Prescott Valley and maintained his points lead, while Pelkey took ninth and slipped back to third in the standings.  In addition to leading the championship chase, Johnson, who will be in the familiar Bobby Martin white #51 at The PAS, also leads the series in overall wins with four.  Pelkey, who steers the popular fluorescent orange ABC Body Shop #12, has two wins in 2014. .

 Arizona stars RJ Johnson, on the inside, and Josh Pelkey battle at Perris Auto Speedway on July 4th, 2013.  Both will be back to battle with the USAC/CRA regulars this Friday night at The PAS.  Media, feel free to publish this photo and please give photo credit to Doug Allen.

 Over the years the talented Copper State duo have plenty of wins between them including Johnson scoring a USAC/CRA win at The PAS a few years ago.  Pelkey, who turned 40 early this year and who resides in Peoria, Arizona, was the 1997 Arizona Sprint Car Association champion.  Johnson, who makes his home in Tempe, was the 2013 USAC Southwest Sprint Car Champion, 2005 USAC/CRA Rookie of the Year and a three-time Arizona Midget champ.

 One thing for certain after last week’s USAC.CRA competition in Northern California, Pelkey, Johnson and any other drivers who venture over from Arizona for the show are wading into an angry hornet’s nest.  Hard driving, wrecked cars and thrilling finishes highlighted both of the shows in the upper portion of the state last weekend.  .Mike Spencer, the five-time USAC/CRA champion from Temecula, won his first main event of the year on Friday at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville,  However, most of the crowd left talking about the last lap tangle between former teammates Nic Faas of Huntington Beach and Damion Gardner of Concord.    Gardner, who leads the championship standings and Faas, who is second, were running second and third respectively for a last lap restart.  They tangled coming off turn two and continued clashing all the way down the back straight until turn three when something broke on Gardner’s car.  Visalia’s Richard Vander Weerd bravely went to the inside of the conflicting duo on the back straight and finished second with New Zealand’s Michael Pickens third.  Faas dropped to fifth and Gardner slid all the way back to 14th in the finishing order.

 The following night at Petaluma, impressive Jake Swanson of Anaheim led the first 28-laps of the main event and it looked like a first ever USAC/CRA victory for the Cypress College marketing student.  But, going into turn one on the last lap Hollister’s Ryan Bernal got into Swanson and they both slid to a stop.  Instead of finishing first and second, Swanson ended up 15th and Bernal was 19th.  That set up a green, white checkered finish and what ended up being one of the most exciting finishes in USAC/CRA history when Yorba Linda’s Austin William went from fourth to first on the last lap and only leading the final 20 feet of the main event for his first win of 2014.

 The scrambles on the track did not change the point standings a lot heading into Friday.  Defending series champ Gardner is still on the top of the championship standings and leads rival Faas by 88-points.  Spencer, who missed a race when his baby daughter was born in early May, is third.  2014 PAS winners Matt Mitchell of Yorba Linda and Vander Weerd round out the top five.

 There will be an on track autograph and photo session with all of the drivers for early arriving fans.  There will also be contests and games for the children and THE “Hollywood Legend,” Pink’s Hot Dogs, will be on sale.

USAC/CRA Point Standings
1. Damion Gardner - Concord - 581
2. Nic Faas - Huntington Beach - 493
3, Mike Spencer - Temecula - 472
4. Matt Mitchell - Yorba Linda - 412

PERRIS RESIDENTS GET INTO PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY FREE ON JULY 4TH!
 from Scott Daloisio
 (Perris, CA, JUNE 30, 2014)   Residents of the City of Perris will be admitted free to Perris Auto Speedway when the popular Riverside County racing facility celebrates Independence Day this Friday, July 4th, with a night of sprint car racing and the biggest and best Fireworks show in Riverside County.  Presented by the City of Perris and Budweiser, spectator gates will open at 3:00 PM and racing will start at 7:00.  The fireworks extravaganza will take place around 9:00 PM.

 Polesitter Matt Murphy brought the field to the green of the special $1,000-to-win 25-lap Late Model feature and took the lead.  Justin Ehrhart, Randy Christine Jr and J.R. Rodriguez pursued Murphy early in the race.  On the seventh circuit, Ehrhart got by Murphy to take the lead.  In the later stage of the race, runner-up Christine Jr. tried to track down Ehrhart.  At the end Ehrhart took the checkers by half a starighaway over Christine and J.R. Rodriguez in third.  Chase Billet finished in fourth, followed by Billy Wampler in fifth.  Rodriguez and Wampler were the heat race winners.

 Polesitter Eddie Richards took the early lead of the Street Stock 20-lap feature with many challengers in tow.  Potts scooted by Richards on lap 5 to take the top spot away.  With the help of a few cautions and double file restarts, Chris Derr started 19th and moved into the top spot past Potts seven laps into the race.  However, mechanical failure forced Derr from the race after leading three laps.  The beneficiary was Richards who inherited the lead on lap 10.  Richards battled Potts side-by-side for the remainder of the race with Jasen Geesaman very close behind.  A caution on lap 19 set up a one-lap shoot-out for the win.  On the restart, Richards continued to lead and took his first win of the season.  Geesaman was able to get by Potts to take the runner-up spot with Potts settling for third place.  Scott Thunberg finished fourth and Jim Palm Jr. rounding out the top five.  Geesaman and Potts were heat race victors.   

 In the 20-lap PA Sprint Series feature race, Nathan Gramley took the lead at the start from the pole position.  Gramley led the first 12 circuits until Eric Parker made the move past him to take the lead.  Once in front, Parker never looked back and went on to claim the victory over runner-up Kody Lehman.  Gramley settled for third with Colby Dcie coming across the line in fourth.  Mike Wagner II rounded out the top five.  Heat race winners were Wayne Dadetto, Gramley and Parker.

 The 20-lap Xtreme Stock Car feature event had the polesitter Jim Jacobs lead the first three circuits until Patrick McClane took over the top spot on lap 4.  Davey Nester took over the top spot on lap 14.  A caution flag on lap 19 set up a one lap dash to the finish.  On the restart, Nester continued to lead.  As the field exited turn four when Matt Wampler drove into the side of Patrick McClane causing a melee behind him.  With the checkered already flying for Nester who took the victory, John Frye came across the line in second before the caution was displayed along with the checkered.  The final finish had Nester taking the win with John Frye in second.  The remainder of the finish reverted back to the last completed lap which was lap 19.   Patrick McClane was awarded third, followed by Todd Knaub in fourth and Joe Racine rounding out the top five.  Matt Wampler was penalized to the rear of the lead lap for his actions on the track.  Heat race winners were Ramsey, Davey Nester and Palm.   

 Daryl Sipe took the lead on the start of the Road Warrior 15 lapper with Ricky Weaver Jr. close behind.  As the leaders came up on lapped traffic, Weaver took the lead on lap 11.  Sipe did not give up and challenged to the end in lapped traffic.  Weaver took the win by half a car length over Sipe.  Tom Senseney finished third.  Kyle Rohrbaugh and Robert Wellman finished fourth and fifth respectively.  Wellman, Brown and Sipe were heat race winners.

 Darryl Kump II and Zakari Kitner swapped the lead four times in the led the nine circuits of the 12-lap Mini Van race.  Zakari Kitner took the lead on the tenth lap and went on to take the win over Kump.  Roy Denike finished in third, followed by Richard Wolfe and tonya Lance in fifth.

BADGER FINALLY WINS PAS SENIOR SPRINT MAIN - MORRIS ENDS WILLIAMS’ YOUNG GUN WIN STREAK!
 from Scott Daloisio
(Perris, CA, June 19, 2014)  In his fourth season of trying, Santa Clarita, California’s Bill Badger finally won his first ever Perris Auto Speedway Senior Sprint Car main event last Saturday night.  In the companion Young Gun Sprint Car main, Holtville’s George Morris led all 15-laps to end Trent Williams’ three race win streak.

 Ventura’s Bruce Douglass, seeking his fourth win in five starts in the Senior Class in 2014, put the Victor Davis owned #13 into the lead at the start of the 20-lap main event from his pole position starting spot.  Ramona’s Rich Bender was second on the start, but was quickly passed by defending champion Rick Hendrix of Palmdale as the field exited turn two.

 After nine second place finishes over the past four years, Santa Clarita’s Bill Badger finally posted his first ever Perris Auto Speedway Senior Sprint Car win.  Media please feel free to publish this photo and please give photo credit to Doug Allen.

 Douglass, who won the championship in 2012 and who is the current point leader, quickly built a comfortable lead.  Hendrix, the 2013 champion, who put an end to Douglass three race win streak at the last race on May 24th, was not making up any ground on the leader.  It appeared if anything was going to beat Douglass it would be mechanical problems or himself.  Unfortunately it became the later when he spun by himself when he had an eight car length lead bringing out a yellow flag.

 Douglass had to go to the tail end of the field for the restart with Hendrix on the pole and Badger second.  Most in the grandstands figured the race would be all Hendrix, but someone forgot to tell Badger.  He blasted by Hendrix for the lead on the restart and immediately began to move away.  When the checkered ended the 20-lapper the Badger Brothers Racing #75 had a five-length lead over Hendrix.  Ed Schwarz of Santa Fe Springs, Jesse Denome of San Diego and Bender rounded out the top five.

 The happy winner, who won the first ever PAS Senior Sprint Car championship in 2011, climbed out of the car and punched the night air.  

 “Finally I got a win here,” he happily told the crowd.  “I have finished second here nine times and this is my first win.”

 In the Young Gun main, it was all Morris for his first PAS win of 2014.   Driving the Morris Farms/Desert Glass Cory Kruseman owned #3K, the 19-year-old led every inch of the way.  That may make it sound like it was easy, but it was anything but that.  Morris had to fight off the persistent challenges of the undefeated Williams turn after turn and straightaway after straightaway for all 15-laps.   

 While Morris had to fight off Williams the entire distance for the win, the third place position changed hands several times before Menifee’s Mikey Lovas finally clung to the spot till the finish.  Lake Forest’s Mitch Collins ended up fourth with Malyssa Young of Oak Hills fifth.

 Holtville’s George Morris won the Young Gun Sprint Car main event at Perris Auto Speedway.  Media please feel free to publish this photo and please give photo credit to Doug Allen.

 Denome and Hendrix won the Senior heats and Lake Elsinore’s Parker Colston won the Young Gun heat.  

 The Senior Sprints, for drivers 45 and older, and the Young Guns, for drivers 14-21, will return to the PAS along with the Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Cars, California Lightning Sprint Cars and the biggest and best fireworks show in Riverside County on July 4th.

Barger Wins Career First 410 Sprint Car Feature on Sunday at SSP
SSP Outback Track Summer Shoot-Out Series Begin This Friday Night
Next Wednesday Test & Tune on June 11

from Todd Fisher
 Newberrytown, PA (June 15, 2014)  Justin Barger from Montrose, New York took the victory in the 7th Annual Sprint Car Summer Classic at the Susquehanna Speedway Park on Fathers Day Sunday night.  It was Bargers first career 410 Sprint Car feature win.  Mechanicsburgs Kevin Nouse  collected the 358 Sprint Car 20 lapper.

 Polesitter Austin Hogue took the early lead of the 25-lap 410 Sprint Car feature with Aaron Ott nad Justin Barger in tow.  The trio entered lapped traffic con the eighth circuit.  Midway through the race, Barger and Ott swapped spots many times and kept Hogue very close in their sights.  The lone caution of the race appeared on lap 15 to close up the field and remove the lead pack from lapped traffic.  On the restart, Barger was able to get by Hogue to lead the 16th lap.  With two laps to go, the trio entered lapped traffic again and Ott was able to claim the runner-up spot from Hogue.  With not enough time left to challenge Barger, the race ended with Barger taking the checkers over Ott and Hogue.  Greg Hodnett finished fourth with Kyle Moody rounding out the top five.  Heat race wins went to Hodnett, Jac Haudenschild and Brent Marks.   

 In the 358 Sprint Car night cap, Brad McClelland took the lead from the front row.  Kevin Nouse immediately began to challenge from the runner-up spot after starting fourth.  A red flag flew on lap five for an eight-car accident with two cars flipping.  All drivers were uninjured.  On the restart, McClelland held the lead until lap 8 when Nouse scooted by going into turn 3.  The next circuit McClelland retired from the race with mechanical failure, putting Jordan Givler in the runner-up spot.  Nouse continued to set the pace and went on the claim the 20-lap feature race.  Brock Zearfoss finished second with a late race charge.  Givler settled for a third place podium finish.  Chandler Leiby finished strong in fourth, followed by Jeff Halligan in fifth.  McClelland, Givler and Zearfoss were the heat race winners.

Madera’s Pombo - Sargent Classic Has a Little of Everything !
by Gerald Laurie
Madera Speedway held their Annual Al Pombo – Marshall Sargent Classic Saturday afternoon and evening. This show commemorates the careers of two Legendary Super Modified Pilots from the 60’s and 70’s. Fresno’s Al Pombo won over twenty Track Championships over some of the stiffest competition around in a career that started in the 50’s and ran all the way into the 70’s. Marshall Sargent from San Jose was Pombo’s chief nemesis throughout his career as the two battled three or more nights a week throughout Central and Northern California. Sargent won some championships as well, but his battles with racing’s officaldom kept him away from some tracks at times. This Race featured the NCMA Spec Sprint Cars, the Jointley sanctioned USAC/BCRA Midgets, and Madera Speedway’s Winged World Series for Supermodifieds and Winged Sprint Cars. These divisions will be covered in the article. There were other divisions competing and their results can be seen on Madera Speedway’s Website.

Qualifications took place in the heat of the afternoon and the Northern California Modified Association Sprint Cars were the first take times. Eric Humphries(15) was fastest with a lap of 14.404 seconds followed by Audra Sasselli(77) at 14.540 and David Goodwill(3) at 14.818.

The Mighty Midgets timed in next with Darrin Snider(2K) at 13.855 holding sway over Chad Nichols(17) at 13.876 and Tanner Swanson(4) at 13.980.

The last group to trail their transponders across the scoring line were the Winged Sprints and Supermods. Kyle Vanderpool(3) set the mark at 12.769 seconds on the 1/3 mile banks followed by Jeff Collins(99) at 12.825 and Cody Gerhardt(40) at 12.888.

Heat Races were the next order of business and each of the open wheel divisions fielded a pair. The first NCMA Heat race featured Don Arriaz(X), Steve Amador(7), Ed Amador(76), Mike Higgins(14) and Duncan Lee(99). Steve Amador grabbed the lead over Arriaz and Ed Amador on lap one. Arriaz then led laps two and three. Steve reclaimed the lead on the fourth go around and then Ed moved to second on five. Steve Amador slowed on lap seven dropping to fourth behind Ed Amador, Arriaz, and Higgins. Steve then spun in turn four and Lee spun to avoid Amador. At the finish, Ed Amador won over Arriaz, and Higgins.

David Burcett (77D) started on the pole followed by David Goodwill(3), Audra Sasselli(77), and Eric Humphries. Goodwill and Sasselli split around Burcett at the start and Goodwell was first back to the line followed by Sasselli and Burcett. Humphries moved to third  on the second circuit.Lap three saw Sasselli take the lead and Burcett head for the pits. Humphries took second a lap later and that was the race. Sasselli took the checkers over Humphries and Goodwill.

The United Staes Auto Club / Bay Cities Racing Association Midget heats were next up. David Prickett(74X), Lauren Snider(2), Jarod Blondel(98), and David Goodwill(3) made up the first two rows while Tanner Swanson(4), Darrin Snider(2K), and J.R. Williams rounded out the field.At the drop of the green, the last third row just hammered their way through the first two and Darrin Snider led lap one over Goodwill and Swanson. Tanner grabbed second on lap two and that was the show. Darrin Snider  won the eight lapper over Swanson and Goodwill.

Both Marvin Mitchell and Rick Holbrook scratced from the second heat to shuffle the line-up a bit. Gary Conterno(55) started on the pole next to Floyd Alvis(18) with Nick Chivello  and Cody Gerhardt in row two. Chad Nichols had the back to himself. Chivello and Nichols blasted through from the back  and Nick led lap one over Nichols and Gerhardt. Winning races on the first lap became a trend that would bite some people later in the evening. Chivello took the heat over Nichols and Gerhardt.

The Winged Cars lined up the first heat staight up and the results were prdic atble. Kyle Vanderpool(3) led off followed by Jeff Collins(99), Cody Gerhardt(40), Tim Skoglund(60) and Brandon Smith(96). And except for Skoglund passing Gerhardt on lap one and Smith heading for the pits at the start,  that is how they finised. Vanderpool dominated over Collins and Skoglund.

The second heat featured Alan Beck(4), Steve Johns(12), Art Mc Carthy(19), and Donnie Large(10). Large’s crew had been chasing fueling system gremlins for two days and evidently they corrected them. Beck and McCarthy led from the inside column with Large in third on lap one. The yellow flew on lap three when McCarthy spun in turn two. Large snookered everyone on the restart and led lap three  over Beck and Johns. Large pulled out a substatial lead and finished first over Beck and Johns.

The NCMA Feature was scheduled for thirty laps. Audra Sasselli and Eric Humpries shared the first row. Their pursuers included David Goodwill, Steve Amador, Ed amador, Don ARRiaz, Duncan Lee, and Mike HigginsOn lap one, there was contact between Ed Amador and Higgins bringing out the yellow and a restart. Ed Amador and Arriaz headed for the pits. Sasselli led Humphries  and Goodwill and these three started srted to pull away from the others. At ten laps, Sasselli led over Humphries and Goodwill.The leaders caught Higgins to put him a lap down at the end of the seventeen lap. Higgins was at least two seconds off the pace and hugging the bottom groove. Sasseli was running middle of the track  with Humphries trying to go inside when they exited turn four. Instead of holding his line, Higgins moved right and Sasselli had to check up and Humphries blasted through on the inside. Humphries pulled out a small lead and Sasselli was unable to challenge him. Humphries won the thirty lapper over Sasselli and Goodwill.

The Midget feature was also scheduled for thirty laps. The top six qualifiers were inverted for the start putting Cody Gerhardt on the pole flanked by David Goodwill. Nick Chivello, Tanner Swanson, Chad Nichols, and Darrin Snider completed the invert. Jarod Blondel, Gary Conterno, Lauren Snider, Floyd Alvis, David Prickett, Marvin Mitchell, and J.R. Williams completed the line-up Rick Holbrook scratched from the event. The inside column got the jump at the green and Gerhardt led lap one over Chivello, Swanson, Goodwill, and Nichols. Chad took fourth on lap two. Chivello took first and Nichols took third on lap four. Lap five saw Swanson repass Nichols and Darrin Snider drop Goodwill from the top five.  In reality, the top six cars were in a veritable “fur ball” and the slicing and dicing was rampant. Swamson removed Gerhardt from second on lap nine and after 1/3 distance, Chivello  led Swanson, Gerhardt, Nichols, and Snider. Nichols took third on lap thirteen. The leaders were well into lapped traffic when the yellow flew on lap fifteen. Gerhardt came off four chasing a loose race car and banged wheels with Williams on the front straight sending J.R. hard into the outside wall. There two unsuccessful resarts with additional spins and contact, but when the smoke all cleared lap seventeen saw Chivello still in the lead over Nichols now in second, Swanson, Gerhardt and Snider. These cars were all in close contact and racing hard. The yellow flew again on lap twenty when Darrin Snider coasted to a stop in turn four with mechanical ills. On lap twenty two, Nichols got around Chivello who immediately slowed and brought out another yellow as he coasted to a stop in four.  Meanwhile, Conterno headed to the pits.

With fewer and fewer cars on the track, the fight at the front became more intense if possible. Nichols now led over Swanson, Gerhardt, Goodwill and Jarod Blondel who had joined in the fray. The yellow flew on twenty seven when Goodwill looped in turn four and Blondel slid into his side trying to stop. With just six cars on the lead lap this put Lauren Snider into fourth with Goodwill and Blondel nipping at her heels. On the restart, the first three , Nichols, Swanson, and Gerhardt could be covered by the same umbrella when all three made contact in turn two. The resulting yellow saw Nichols stalled in the turn. During the yellow, as Nichols pushed off to rejoin the fray, USAC and BCRA officials penalized Swanson for avoidable contact and Gerhardt inherited the lead over Goodwill, Blondel, Snider, Nichols and Swanson. In the two lap run to the checkers, Nichols got back to fourth. After one of the most intense midget races I have ever witnessed, Cody Gerhardt got his first win in a Midget with David Goodwill and Jarod Blondel joining him on the podium. Chad Nichols, Tanner Swanson, and NicK Chivello have dominated recent races at Madera and they were all in the thick of it all race long. But in the end, we had a first time midget winner in the circle and some new faces on the podium.

The Supermodified / Winged Sprint Car Main Event was the last race of the evening and pushing the curfew due to numerous delays in other divisions. The fastest six were inverted and included Alan Beck, Brandon Smith, Tim Skoglund, Cody Gerhardt, Jeff Collins, and Kyle Vanderpool. The rear of the field was occupied by Art McCarthy, Donnie Large, Steve Johns, and Marvin Mitchell. On the initial start, Smith, Gerhardt, and Skoglund all got a run on Beck with Skoglund inside and the others outside. The ensuing sandwich contact sheared a fuel fitting off the tail tank of Beck’s Sprint car and sent the four into the infield with flames enveloping the back of the vehicle. The red flew as did the safety crew. They first hit fire with extinguishers while pulling Alan from the car and then with water from two pressurised tanks on their safety vehicles as thirty gallons of methonal kept feeding the fire. The infield fire hose was  also employed as Beck was taken into the ambulance for triage and treatment. With the fire extinguished, the water tanks were refilled and the race was restarted with Skoglund on the poll and the entire inside line moved up. Beck was not seriously injured but the onsite EMT’s decided to transport him to the emergency room for treatment of burns. He was transported as soon as an additional ambulance arrived.

On the restart, Smith blew through turn one to lead over Skoglund, Collins, Vanderpool, and Gerhardt. McCarthy had pulled off after the initial start and Large headed for the pits on lap three, with limited oil pressure. Collins displaced Skoglund on lap four and Vanderpool did likewise on lap seven. Smith spun out of the lead in turn four to bring out the caution on the ninth lap. Smith was pushed to the pits while McCarthy rejoined the show for a single lap under green. After ten laps, Collins now had the point followed by Vanderpool, Skoglund, Gerhardt, and Johns. Collins began to stretch out a lead and for a while, the best race on the track was between teammates Skoglund and Gerhardt. The remainder of the race went pretty much non-stop with Collins extending his lead and lapping Johns and Mitchell several times. The finsh had four cars on the lead lap with Collins winning his First Supermodified Feature over Vanderpool, Skoglund and Gerhardt.

As I said in the headline. We had a little bit of everything in the Pombo – Sargent Classic. We had heat, Weather related, Competition related, and scary fiery flames related. We had some great racing in the midget event. We had some penalties assessed by officials. We had a couple of major track oil downs in some of the other divisions, and Madera Speedway managed to get the show in about forty seconds shy of the hard Fairgrounds Curfew.

USAC SPRINT CARS AND IMCA MODIFIEDS HEAT IT UP AT ARIZONA SPEEDWAY

6/5/2014
  As the weather heats up so does the action at Arizona Speedway.  Two feature groups bring the heat this Saturday night as we are please to host both USAC Non Wing Sprint Cars along with IMCA Modifieds.  The first time ever on the same card at the speedway the 2 feature divisions will also be backed up by the X-Mods and Robert Horne Ford Bombers.

USAC Sprint Car points leader  RJ Johnson holds a 6 point lead over Josh Pelkey and a slightly higher lead over Charles Davis Jr. .  Davis who took the last win at Arizona Speedway with 30 laps of fierce action will look make it 2 in a row at the high speed facility.  Nearing the half way point in the season all 3 of the front runners have suffered DNF's this year keeping the competition tight and the championship still anyones game.

Coming off of a bye week the IMCA Modified drivers have had time to recharge after the hard fought 2 day show that saw both Eric Center and Brian Schultz taking home wins and the title hunt heat up.  After a DNF by Schultz in the Saturday night feature which turned the lead over to Cody Graham.  The top 10 in this division always have a shot at taking home the win and leave fans with a smile on their face.

The fastest growing and now becoming one of the best racing divisions in the region, the X-Mods will be on hand after a record car count last Saturday night at Central Arizona Speedway.  Part time X-Mod and Part time Mod Lite driver Nick Bruce edged out front runner Trevor Miller and Coolidges Scott Starnes.   Eric Winemiller still sits on top but consistency had pulled Starnes to within 6 points of the leader.

The Robert Horne Ford Bombers will finish the card as Michael Brigner still holds a 2 point lead over  Virgil McArthur who nearly put it on its lids last Saturday night at Central Arizona Speedway.  Steve Soboski and Mark Farnes sit in the 3rd and 4th spots.  FArnes notably picked up the win at Central Arizona Speedway in Casa Grande last week over Soboski.
Racing action begins at 7:30pm this Saturday night June 7th. Cost of admission for this special show is $15 for adults, $12 Seniors, $5 kids 7-11 and kids 6 and under are FREE. Arizona Speedway is located within ET Motopark 4 miles south of US60 on Ironwood Dr. just 5 minutes from Mesa, AZ. .  Log onto www.ArizonaSpeedway.net or follow us at www.Facebook.com/ArizonaSpeedway for more info.

SUMMIT MODIFIED NATIONALS COMING TO TRI-STATE SPEEDWAY
LATE MODELS ARE ALSO ON THE CARD

from E Butcher
Haubstadt, IN - June 4, 2014 - This Saturday June 7th Tri-State
Speedway will be presenting the Summer Showdown - DIRT Car Summit
Modified Nationals. The racing program will also include an
appearance by the pro late models of the Quick Car Racing Products
Dirt Late Model Series. Hot laps are at 6:30 with heat racing
beginning at 7:30 P.M.

The Modified drivers will be competing for a $3,000 top prize. The
feature event is the biggest paying race on this years Summit Racing
Equipment Modified Nationals schedule. The ongoing series of open
wheel modified races does not conclude until July 19th. By then
drivers will have had an opportunity to compete at 29 other tracks
for purses paying $1,000 or $1,500 to win! The series will make a
second and return appearance at Tri-State Speedway on July 6th.

Mike Harrison is the defending Summit Modified National Champion. He
finished ahead of Rusty Griffaw, Jeff Curl, and Kenny Wallace in
2013. Three drivers that compete at Tri-State Speedway regularly
finished in the top 20 in the series? standings. Levi Kissinger,
Tyler Nicely, and Trent Young were among the best of some 396
modified drivers who earned points over the six week tour.

What makes the series unique is that DIRT car takes each drivers best
8 finishes and an average of those points determines the champion.
Drivers can pick and choose races to balance the travel with work
responsibilities and still have a chance of becoming the champion.
That champion will take home a prize of $5,000 in 2014. Plus there is
a contingency program totaling more than $50,000 in prizes and
products to be distributed during the series and at the awards
banquet.

Last year Devin Gilpin won the first Summer Showdown at Haubstadt.
There were 52 entries. Levi Kissinger was second. Kissinger already
has two wins at the track this year.

The PCRA late models appeared at Tri-State Speedway for the first
time last season. Since then they have picked up a new sponsor -
Quick Car Racing Products. Drivers following the series are from
Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee. These late models are
powered by factory sealed crate engines.

Veteran Illinois late model driver Steve Lance leads the series
points by virtue of winning three of the four features held so far.
Jeremy McLaughlin won the other event. Aaron Heck of Mt. Vernon,
IL, won last years 25 lap feature event.

Drivers that are currently in the top five in points with the Quick
Car Dirt Late Model Series include Shawn Diggs, Dave Polok Jr., Chad

HENDRIX STOPS DOUGLASS WIN STREAK - WILLIAMS STAYS PERFECT AT PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY!
from Scott Daloisio
  (Perris, CA, May 28, 2014)  Palmdale, California veteran Rick Hendrix snapped Bruce Douglass three race winning streak in the Senior Sprint Cars and teenage star  Trent Williams stayed perfect for the year in the PAS Young Gun Sprint Cars when they won their respective main events at last Saturday’s “Salute To Indy”  at Perris Auto Speedway.

 Starting on the pole, Hendrix, the defending PAS Senior Sprint Car champ, took the lead from initial PAS Senior Sprint Car champion Bill Badger on lap four and led the rest of the way for the win.  Douglass, the 2012 PAS Senior Sprint Car champion, got around Santa Clarita’s Badger on lap- eight, but could not cut into the huge lead Hendrix built up.  At the Kevin Winters checkered flag, the three PAS Senior champs occupied the win, place and show spots.  However, Hendrix, in his familiar R.G.W. Inc./Brass Monkey #15, was nearly a full straight ahead of Douglass and Badger, at the end of the 20-lapper.  Ed Schwarz of Santa Fe Springs ended up fourth and Canadian native Royal Adderson stole fifth from Ramona’s Rich Bender at the line.

ASCS WING SPRINTS RETURN TO CASA GRANDE AT
THE FASTEST TRACK IN THE DESERT THIS SATURDAY NIGHT

5/29/2014
   The Southwest Region of the American Sprint Car Series is set to scatter soil this Saturday, May 31 at the high-banked, three-eights mile, Central Arizona Speedway in Casa Grande, Ariz., formerly the Central Arizona Raceway.

Lorne Wofford stands as the most recent winner at the Arizona oval, doing so on May 18, 2013.

The only scheduled appearance of the ASCS Southwest Region at the Central Arizona Speedway in 2014, Rick Ziehl assumed the point in the chase for the championship after early leader, Bob Ream, Jr., was a no show at the Arizona Speedway on May 17.

The only name to ever grace the champion's trophy in ASCS Southwest competition, Ziehl holds a slim 6 point margin over Joshua Williams who has matched Ziehl in terms of wins, top-fives, and top-tens so far this year.

Ryan Linder trails by only 16 points, followed by the region's most recent winner, Lance Norick, who is 49 points back. Missing the show at the Arizona Speedway has pushed Ream back to fifth some 97 points behind going into this weekend's event at the Central Arizona Speedway.

 The program will include Pure Stocks, X-Mods, Dwarf Cars, and Bombers with races getting underway at 7:30 P.M.  Pits open at 4:00pm, front gates open at 5:30pm. Cost of admission is $15 for adults, $12 for senior and kids 11 and under are free.

BRUCE BROMME JR. NAMED GRAND MARSHAL OF 19TH ANNUAL BUDWEISER OVAL NATIONALS!
   from Scott Daloisio
(Perris, CA, May 23, 2014)  At the last Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Car race at Perris Auto Speedway, promoter Don Kazarian announced to the crowd that National Sprint Car Hall of Famer Bruce Bromme Jr. will be the Grand Marshal of the 19th Annual Budweiser Oval Nationals, presented by All Coast Construction, on November 6th, 7th and 8th.    

 “It gives me great pleasure to announce that Hall of Fame sprint car crew chief Brice Bromme Jr. is the Grand Marshal of this year’s Budweiser Oval Nationals,” Kazarian said.  “Over the years we have had racers, officials, owners and fans as Grand Marshal, but we have never had a crew chief. Bruce is one of the best sprint car crew chiefs in the history of the sport.  He is virtually a living legend and his expertise is known across the nation. “

 Born in 1951, Bromme was helping his father Bruce Sr. and Grandfather Louis in the race shop from the time he learned how to crawl.  As a child, he raced quarter midgets in the cul de sac by his house against lifelong friend and fellow National Sprint Car Hall of Famer Dean Thompson.  It did not take the youngster long to realize that he liked wrenching on racecars more than he did driving them.  That created a career move that landed him a spot in the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame in Knoxville, Iowa in 2011.  There he joined his father, Bruce Sr., who was inducted as a car owner 14-years earlier.

 Down through the years Bromme Jr. tuned cars have won over 250 main events and more than 20 championships between the original CRA, SCRA and USAC/CRA.  He has won championships with Mike Spencer, Richard “The Gasman” Griffin, Lealand McSpadden, Damion Gardner and Thompson.  While Thompson and McSpadden have already joined Bromme in the Hall of fame, Griffin, Spencer and Gardner will one day have their plaques there as well.

 While.those drivers have won championships with the talented Templeton, Californian turning the wrenches, several other top starts, including fellow Hall of Famers Bubby Jones and Jimmy Oskie, have also driven cars tuned by Bromme.  Another driver to benefit from Bromme’s knowledge was past Indy Racing League star Billy Boat. At the last ever sprint car race at legendary Ascot Park in Gardena in 1990, Boat, in a car tuned by Bromme, set the all-time track record for a traditional sprint car with a lap of 17.958.

 Since 1995 Bromme has been the crew chief for Ron Chaffin’s red #50 car.  In their first 19 seasons together, they won the season long championship 14 times.  They also won three Non Wing World Championships and the 2012 Oval Nationals with current driver Spencer.

 “When it comes to tuning a racecar, Bruce is a virtual genius,” Kazarian stated.  “He can read the racetrack and know exactly what to do to make his car go faster.  Time and time again we have seen races where another car is going to win the main event and a red flag comes out.  Bruce gets to tune on the car and the changes he makes leads them to a victory.  His reputation to do that literally strikes fear into some of the competition.  He is into their heads.”

 Over the years Bromme has worked with great drivers like those mentioned above and more.  All have benefited immensely from his knowledge and as Spencer recently explained, it is not just on car setup.

 “Bruce has so much experience and knowledge and not just with the car,” Spencer explained.  “Yes, he is a master at setting up the car and reading the track.  But he also knows how to make the driver comfortable.  That is very important.  I know my career has really benefited just from being around Bruce.  He is great,”

 For more information on The PAS call: (951) 940-0134.

 Camping for all events at The PAS is available for $25.00 per night.  The campground will open at noon on Friday.  Tailgating in the spectator parking lot will begin at 1:00 PM for all PAS events as well.

USAC Wingless Sprints Preview at Next Wednesday Test & Tune on June 4

 from Todd Fisher
Newberrytown, PA (May 22, 2014) ? This Saturday night, May 25, will feature 3rd annual 21a Memorial Day Championships in remembrance of the late Mike Zeigler Sr. at the Susquehanna Speedway Park.   Racing action will feature 21-lap feature races for the Late Models, Street Stocks and the Xtreme Stock Cars.  The Zeigler family will be presenting special plaques to the winners of the three classes.  Also racing will be the Road Warriors, Mini Vans/Jr. Road Warriors and Cthe PENNMAR Vintage Cars.       

 The late Mike Zeigler Sr., a resident of Spring Grove, began racing late into the 1979 Lincoln Speedway season and won his first feature before season?s end.  He had more than 150 career feature wins in various classes that include Modified Stocks, Thundercars, Semi-Lates and Late Models (spanning over 31 years at Lincoln Speedway, Susquehanna Speedway and Trail-Way Speedway).  At the Susquehanna Speedway Park, Mike Sr. had 6 career feature victories in his famous 21a.

 Mike Zeigler Sr. also captured many track championships including the 1980 Modified Stocks (Trail-way Speedway), 1996 Thundercars (Trail-way Speedway), 1983 Semi-Late (Lincoln Speedway), 1985 Late Model (Lincoln Speedway), 1998 & 2004 Thundercars (Lincoln Speedway).  From 2005 till 2011, Mike slowly dwindled out of racing himself, only to support both of his sons Mike Jr. and Cam) to achieve their goals and dreams as accomplished stock car drivers like their father.  Late in 2010, Mike was stricken with cancer which then took him from his family, friends and the racing community on May 31, 2011.

 On Saturday, the pit gates will open at 4:30 p.m. Grandstand gates will open at 5:00 p.m. Track Prep laps begin at 6:30 p.m. with qualifying races at 7:00 p.m. followed by consolation races and feature events.

NEW DADDY MIKE SPENCER BACK IN RACECAR SATURDAY AT PERRIS AUTO SPDWY’S
ANNUAL SALUTE TO INDY!

 from  Scott Daloisio
(Perris, CA, May 20, 2014)  Two weeks ago when the Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Car series made an appearance at the Ventura Raceway, something familiar was missing from the normal part of the show. Five-time series champion Mike Spencer missed the race!  While some people wondered and worried that the likeable driver had lost his ride in the Ron Chaffin #50 car, the answer was anything but that.  Less than 24-hours before the race, Spencer and wife Ashley became parents for the first time.  This Saturday night, May 24th, when Perris Auto Speedway hosts the Annual Salute to Indy, the competition had better be ready as the new father will be back in action on the famous Riverside County clay oval when the first green flag flies at 7:00 PM.

 It had been so since the 32-year-old Cal Poly Pomona engineering graduate had missed a race, it took him a few moments to figure it out.

 “It has been so long since I missed a race, I am really not sure when it was,” the Temecula resident said before thinking a few seconds more.  “It was either 2003 or 2004.   Wait, it was actually 2004, the year of the split (between sanctioning bodies USAC/CRA and its predecessor SCRA).  I was driving the #44 car for Hal Engstrom and we ran a couple of the SCRA races that conflicted with USAC dates.”

 This time Spencer’s reason for missing the race was a lot more important than picking between two feuding sanctioning bodies on where to race.

 “On May 9th at 7:00 PM, Vera Mae Spencer was born,” the proud father said.  “We got her home from the hospital on Monday (May 12th).  My wife’s due date was May 6th and that was right in between the May 3rd Perris race and the May 10th date at Ventura.  She started having contractions on Thursday (two days before the Ventura race) so I call Ron (car owner Ron Chaffin) and Bruce (crew chief Bruce Bromme Jr.) and told them I was not going to be able to make it.  They were very supportive,”

 New father Mike Spencer returns to racing this Saturday night at Perris Auto Speedway.

 Spencer, who finished second in the points in 2013 after winning five straight USAC/CRA crowns, lost a substantial amount of points when he missed the race, but some things are obviously more important than racing to him.  And, the championship is not the team’s main focus.

 “Our goal is two win races,” Spencer said.  “We will just try to see if we can the most races.  The #4 car (Damion Gardner) is off to a great start this year and has got a few wins straight out of the box. We have our work cut out for us.   If we get in the points race in the year, we will give it our best shot, but right now we are just trying to win races.”

 Heading into Saturday’s race at The PAS, Spencer is third in the championship standings behind defending champ Gardner, who resides in Concord, and Nic Faas of Huntington Beach.  He is 123-points behind Gardner.  In the first two races of the year at Perris, Spencer passed Gardner in the 30-lap main event only to see Gardner pass him back both times.  Gardner went on to win both of those events with Spencer second.  At the last race at The PAS on May 3rd, Spencer finished fifth while Gardner took second behind first time winner Richard Vander Weerd of Visalia.

 This week’s race will see the USAC/CRA main extended to 40-laps.  In addition to Spencer, Gardner, Faas, Vander Weerd and the rest of the rest of the USAC/CRA stars, the California Lightning Sprint Cars, PAS Senior Sprint and PAS Young Gun Sprints will also be in action.  Spectator gates will open at 5:00 PM on Saturday with the first race at 7:00.

 Adult tickets are $25.00.  Seniors 65 and older get in for $20.00.  Active military members with proper id, teens 13-18 with their school id and kids 6-12 get in for just $5.00.  Children 5 and under are free.

GREG ALEXANDER LOOKS FOR A RIDE FOR SATURDAY’S SALUTE TO INDY AT PERRIS!

from Scott Daloisio
 (San Pedro, CA, May 20, 2014)  Greg Alexander, who recorded a best ever USAC/CRA finish of third at Perris Auto Speedway on May 3rd, is looking for a ride for this Saturday night’s “Salute to Indy” at the Riverside County half-mile clay oval.   Alexander’s #72 Chuck Tyler Motorsports car is currently sidelined with a blown engine he suffered the week after his podium finish as The PAS.

 The San Pedro, California based racer had high hopes going into the Ventura event.  Not only due to his third place finish at Perris, but also because he has four wins in the VRA Sprint Car Series at the beach side oval in the past.  However, those hopes were quickly extinguished when the teams only 410 engine blew in hot laps.  Magnifying the situation is the fact that the engine on the teams transporter blew the day before.

 “It was very disappointing,” the 25-year-old driver said.  “I thought we had a great chance at Ventura, but now we are off the track for a bit while we get everything back together, I am hoping to find a ride until we get back on the track, but thus far nothing has turned up.  I would really like to race in the “Salute to Indy” at Perris.  I will keep looking and if anyone has a ride or knows of an open ride, give me call at 714 610-4566.”

RACER JEFF DYER TO PAY HOMAGE TO FALLEN ARMY FRIENDS
AT PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY MEMORIAL WEEKEND RACE!
from Scott Daloisio
    (Perris, CA, May 19, 2014)  Racing has always been a big deal for California Lightning Sprint Car driver Jeff Dyer.  Growing up in Chino, the now 31-year-old has fond memories of his early youth watching the CRA Sprint Cars spray chards of moist, tacky clay into the grandstands at legendary Ascot Park in Gardena.  This Saturday night, May 24th, at the Annual Salute to Indy at Perris Auto Speedway, Dyer is going to have an emotional night as he reflects on some other memories when he races in honor of some of his fallen friends in the United States Army.

 Dyer has been in the Army for 10 years and is a Sargeant1st Class in the 759th EOD.  Spelled out, that means Explosives Ordinance Disposal - he is the guy in the thickly padded suit who disarms bombs.  That is not what he started out as in the Army.  Initially the former Laverne Lutheran sports star was a cavalry scout.

 “I deployed doing that (cavalry scout) and I enjoyed doing it, it was fun,” Dyer stated on the phone last Thursday.  “But, there were these guys who would show up when there was an IED.  They would come and get rid of it and go off into the shadows and do their own thing.  When I came home I tore up my ACL playing rugby so I was playing around on the Internet one day looking for something else to do because I was kind of bored doing what I was doing.  So, I looked into it and signed up.  It is a specialty job and there are not very many of us doing it.  It is pretty much the only job in the Army when you can quit anytime you want.”

 
California Lightning Sprint Car Series star Jeff Dyer on duty in Afghanistan.

 Over the years, Dyer has had many of his friends pay the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty and he is going to remember them this Saturday in a special way.

“I have lost a lot of real good friends and five of them were real close to me,” Dyer explained.  “I wanted to do something special and I will have a special wrap on the car honoring them on Saturday.  Those guys were close to my heart and I still talk to their families.  I told the families about what I was doing and I did not realize the reaction that I would get from them.  They were really happy about it and it brought tears to their eyes.  May is a special; month for the EOD community anyway.  Every May they put the fallen member’s names on the wall at the EOD School. We are kind of the only job in the Army or the military where we have our own memorial and we take care of ourselves.  We have our own wounded foundation.  It is pretty cool.  Whatever I can do to give back, I want to do.    

 Needless to say, there is a lot of extreme danger associated with his job and in the not too distant future, Dyer has his sights set on retiring from the Army and moving on to a job he has wanted to do for a long, long time.

 “I have 20 more months and then I am going to call it quits,” he said. “I am going to try to become a cop. That is something I have always wanted to do.  I am at a point in my life where I am getting older so I might as well do it or don’t. I am looking at the San Bernardino County or Riverside County Sheriffs because they both have bomb squads.”

 In his time in the Army, the friendly racer has had two tours in Iraq and two tours in Afghanistan  He has been awarded two bronze stars, three Arcoms, Two AAM, Iraq Campaign Medal, Afghan Campaign Medal, Over Seas Ribbon, Good Conduct Medal, NATO Medal , Combat Action Badge and Senior EOD Badge.

 One the racing side of his resume, thus far in 2014, the father of two boys ages seven and nine, has had a decent year.  He has one win (it came at The PAS) and comes into Saturday’s race second in points behind defending champion and Army veteran Stephen Limon of Corona,  If not for a mishap about a month ago, Dyer may have been the military man leading the championship chase at this time.

 “We have had a good year,” he said.  “I worked really hard in the off season to get our stuff right.  I had a new car last year and I struggled big time with it.  Finally I got all the bugs out of it, Alex Grigoreas helped me a ton with it.  I got on the right track and then we went to Ventura.  I was fast qualifier that night, but in the main I just got in over my head trying to do too much too fast.”

 On the opening lap of the Ventura main, Dyer ran over the right rear of the car starting in front of him and flipped violently and only stopped flipping because the crash wall got in the way.  Fortunately he was not injured, but the car was done for the night.  In the two races since his flip, he has a second and a third place finish and has started to dig himself out of the hole the flip created.  Heading into Saturday’s race at The PAS, Dyer is 51-points behind Limon in the race for the 2014 title.

 Dyer’s time around dirt track racing began at Ascot where his step dad, Don Nelson, was part owner of a sprint car driven by Gary Howard, Keith Chrisco and Frank Baldozier among others.

 “I actually had a deal worked out to race a 410 sprint car in some races this year, but it fell through,” Dyer said.  “That is my ultimate goal. That is the only thing I ever wanted to do since I was a little kid.  Race 410 sprint cars.  I never had any desire to try to get to Indy or NASCAR or anything like that.  A 410 sprint car to me is probably the cream of the crop and it is my ultimate goal.  Once I get there, I could finish racing and be done with it and be satisfied.  Growing up at Ascot I just always wanted to do it.  I was always playing baseball or football and I got a late start in racing, so now I am trying to catch up.  I take care of the car by myself at home and they (step dad and his brother John work on the car in the pits) meet me at the track and do their thing.  It helps me out a lot because I can basically just show up and drive”

Camping for all events at The PAS is available for $25.00 per night.  The campground will open at noon on Friday.  Tailgating in the spectator parking lot will begin at 1:00 PM for all PAS events as well.

19th ANNUAL BUDWEISER OVAL NATIONALS TO BE TELEVISED ON MAVTV!
 from Scott Daloisio
(Perris, CA, May 15, 2014)   When the Kazarian family opened Perris Auto Speedway in 1996, they knew the sparkling new racing facility would need a signature sprint car event.  They came up with the name “Oval Nationals” and the inaugural event, which was won by National Sprint Car Hall of Famer Jimmy Sills, took place on October 18 and 19th of that year.  Little did they or anyone else know that over the years the race would become one of the most prestigious races in the sprint car world.  The race will take another giant leap forward when staged this November 6th, 7th and 8th, when for the first time it will be shown on MAVTV as part of  the “Dirty 30” series.

 “We are ecstatic that the Budweiser Oval Nationals Presented by All Coast Construction will be shown to racing fans around the country on MAVTV,” promoter Don Kazarian stated.  “The Oval Nationals is a premiere event and this exposure will make it even bigger.  It will be a tremendous boost for the drivers, the teams, fans, the track and all of the sponsors who will be exposed to millions of extra racing fans.”

 Over the years, some of the biggest names in open wheel racing have visited victory circle at the Oval Nationals and it draws together top talent from around the country. In 2007, third generation Campbell, California star Bud Kaeding became the first driver to win the Oval Nationals three times.  Last November, Indiana’s Dave Darland became only the second driver to win it three times. The only other multi-time winners in the first 18 runnings of the race have been Californian’s Damon Gardner and Cory Kruseman who each have two wins.  Both of Kruseman’s wins came while driving cars owned by NASCAR superstar Tony Stewart.  Drivers with single wins in the Oval Nationals are Mike Spencer, Rip Williams, Rodney Argo, Tony Jones, Rickie Gaunt & Sills of California, Illinois racer Chris Windom and the late Jesse Hockett of Missouri.

 “When all is said and done, nearly every driver who has won the Oval Nationals will be inducted into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame,” Kazarian said.  “Two of them, Sills and Williams, are already in there.  As impressive as the list of drivers who have already won the Oval Nationals is, the list of drivers who have thus far tried and failed to win it is just as impressive.  It is one of the toughest races in the world to win.”

 The main man behind the scenes in getting the Oval Nationals onto MAVTV is Jackslash Media president Sean Buckley.  A native of Ojai, California, Buckley pulled up stakes and moved to Indiana over a decade ago to follow his dream of producing videos and TV shows on sprint car racing.  2013 became Buckley’s breakthrough year when MAVTV, which is based in Corona, California, decided to air his “Flip the Switch” show which featured sprint car racing in Indiana.  The network, which was founded in 2004, picked the show up for 30 episodes in 2014 and changed the name of the show to “Dirty 30.”  

 In 2013 the show featured only non wing racing in Indiana.  For 2014, it will feature non wing and winged racing from across the nation.  In addition, it was recently announced that USAC, generally considered to be the top non wing sanctioning body in the nation, has signed on and will be featured as part of the exciting TV series.

 “We ate really grateful for the MAVTV deal,” Buckley said.  “They have let us spread our wings a little bit.  We have worked on the USAC deal for a while and were able to nail that down.   The Oval Nationals is one of the crown jewels of traditional sprint car racing.  It is one of if not the biggest traditional sprint car races of the year.  It is in our home area where we are from and to be able to put it on TV and showcase it like this is a big deal for us and a big deal for a lot of people.    It is something that everybody can benefit from.”

DOUGLASS AND WILLIAMS STAY PERFECT AT PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY!
from Scott Daloisio
 (Perris, CA, May 9, 2014)  Veteran Bruce Douglass and young gasser Trent Williams continued to bat 1,000 for the 2014 season when they won the PAS Senior Sprint and PAS Young Gun Sprint Car main events last Saturday night at Perris Auto Speedway.  Douglass win was his third in a row to start the season while Williams made it two straight to open the campaign in the Young Guns.

 The deck was stacked early on for Douglass in the 20-lap Senior main event.  The 62-year-old Ventura resident was starting 10th in the blue Victor Davis #13 Lucas Oil sprint car.  The veteran racer had a lot of cars to pass to get to the point and he made it look as easy as slicing a hot knife through warm butter.  First year Senior Sprint driver Rich Bender set the tempo at the start with two-time Ventura winner Steve Brown of Corona giving early chase.  However, by the time the 13-car field completed the first circuit, Douglass was already in fifth and moving towards the front of the pack like an out of control locomotive.

 By the end of the second go around, Brown had relieved Bender of the top spot and Douglass had advanced two more positions towards the front and was in \third.    Brown had established a good size lead before Douglass took second and then chased down the leader.  The two engaged in a brief, spirited duel before Douglass knifed his way into the lead with an inside move at the end of the sixth lap.

 Once out front Douglass raced away to a convincing advantage.  The only roadblock on his way to the checkered came when Santa Inez driver Bob Alderman was shaken and a red flag came out bringing the proceedings to a halt.  Once the action resumed, Douglass continued to rampage away from the field. With a steady grasp on the impending victory, the talkative 2012 PAS champ thrilled the crowd when he split two laps cars just for fun entering turn three the last time.  A few moments later, he bagged his third win of the 2014 campaign.

 Bill Badger of Santa Clarita, the original PAS Senior champion in 2011, came all the way from 11th to finish second behind Douglass with San Diego’s Jesse Denome third.  Brown came home in the fourth spot with defending champion Rick Hendrix of Palmdale fifth.


 Bruce Douglass, sitting in the Victor Davis owned #13 sprint car,
 Bruce has won the first three PAS Senior Sprint Car mains of 2014.

 Earlier in the night Douglass and Badger won the two eight lap heat races.

 Williams, a 17-year-old from Victorville, started on the pole for the Young Guns main and took the lead on the start before seeing Holtville’s George Morris fly by for the top spot in turn four on the first lap.  Morris held the point until Williams returned the favor in the same spot on the track on the third lap.  It quickly became apparent that Williams’ white Victory Race Cars/Sunset Wraps/Continental Auto Body/DSM Motorsports /Pick’s Racing Engine/Circle Track Performance #52 was going to be hard to beat.  However, he had to fight off challenges and saw his lead disappear a few time due to yellow flags.  When the checkered finally ended the race, he had a several car length lead over Lake Forest’s Mitchell Collins.  Fifteen-year-old Parker Colston of Lake Elsinore was third followed by newly engaged Malyssa Young of Oak Hills and Morris.

Pure stocks back in action this Saturday after a much needed 2 week layoff. Arron Hetrick has a 20 point cushion in the points championship as Ray Czumaj and Daren Olney are currently tied for 2nd.

Michael Brigner leads the Robert Horne Ford Bombers into this Saturday night with a 8 point lead over Virgil McArthur while a DNF last weekend from Mark Farnes leaves him 22 points behind in 3rd position.

Dewease Wins Sunday Night Sprint Car Special at SSP
Wednesday Night Test & Tune Up Next on May 7

from Todd Fisher
 Newberrytown, PA (May 4, 2014) ? Lance Dewease of Fayetteville took the victory in the Sunday Night Sprint Car at the Susquehanna Speedway Park.  It was Dewease?s 16th career SSP victory, tying for 13fh with Van May with Super 410 Sprint Car victories at SSP.  Gene Knaub of Dover collected the Late Model 25 lapper.  Mike Zelionis and Rohan Bealsey split the Sidewinder Sprint Car dual features.

 Blaine Heimbach started the 410 Sprint Car 25-lapper from the pole position, but it was Brandon Rahmer taking the early lead at the start.  Rahmer led the first nine circuits until Lance Dewease made the veteran move to pass Rahmer going into turn one on the tenth circuit of the race.  The next lap, Danny Dietrich made his way by Rahmer to move into the runner-up spot and setting his sights on the leader.  Dietrich came close a few times, but was never able to make the complete pass for the lead.  Dewease held on for the win, followed by Dietrich.  Donnie Kreitz made a late race charge to finish in third with Greg Hodnett finishing fourth.  Heimbach rounded out a solid fifth place finish.  Heat race wins went to Dewease, Rick Lafferty and Aaron Ott.

 In the Late Model 25-lap feature event, Ben Whitaker grabbed the early lead and set the pace for the first seven laps as Gene Knaub and J.R. Rodriguez battled for the second place position.  Once Knaub made it by Rodriguez on lap seven, he took control of the top spot on the next circuit and never looked back to take the victory.  On the last lap, Chase Billet scooted by Rodriguez to take the runner-up spot with Rodriguez finishing third.  Randy Christine Jr. finished fourth with Kyle Martin in fifth.  Whitaker?s strong run came to an end when he retired from the race on lap 19.  Matt Adams, Knaub and Rodriguez were all heat race winners.

 Racing action returns to the Big Track at SSP on Saturday night, May 10 with a Small Car Demolition Derby at SSP along with the Late Models, Street Stocks, Xtreme Stocks, Road Warriors, Mini Vans/Jr. Road Warriors and the PA Sprint Series.  The start time for racing is now 7:00 p.m. for the remainder of the summer

DOUGLASS AND WILLIAMS LEAD SENIOR & YOUNG GUN SPRINTS TO PERRIS THIS SATURDAY NIGHT!
from Scott Daloisio
 (Perris, CA, May 1, 2014)  Senior Sprint Car ace Bruce Douglass and PAS Young Gun teenager Trent Williams will be back to defend their early season wins  this Saturday night, May 3rd, at Perris Auto Speedway.  Joining the two divisions in the open wheel quadruple header will be the Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Cars and the California Lightning Sprint Cars.  Spectator gates will open at 5:00 PM and racing will commence at 7:00.

 Douglass, a 62-year-old who journeys from Ventura to race at The PAS, is looking for his third straight win to open the season on the famous Riverside County half-mile clay oval.    The 2012 PAS champion has won both main events in Victor Davis’ blue #13 sprint car this year.  Douglass last win on April 12th came against the largest field of Senior Sprint Cars ever assembled at Perris Auto Speedway.  19-cars with all drivers being age 45 and older contested the exciting race in front of one of the largest crowds in track history.

 62-year-old Bruce Douglass of Ventura is two for two in PAS Senior Sprint Car main events in 2014.  Media feel free to publish this photo and please give credit to Doug Allen.

 Douglass early season prowess sees him carry a 12-point lead over Ed Schwarz of Santa Fe Springs in the season long championship standings.  Corona’s Steve Brown, who has two Senior Sprint main wins at Ventura already this year, and Bob Alderman of Santa Ynez are tied for third some 27 points behind Douglass.  Santa Clarita’s Bill Badger, the first ever PAS Senior champion in 2011, is fifth in points, 35 in back of the leader.

 Schwarz. Badger, 2013 champ Rick Hendrix of Palmdale and Jesse Denome of San Diego rounded out the top five at the last race.  Brown was the race “Hard Charger” moving from 9th to 12th in a race that was cut to 15-laps after the spectacular crash of Hacienda Heights driver Tony Lima on the first lap.  Lima walked away from his destroyed car uninjured and peered to top of The PAS extra tall 36-foot catch fence to see his front wheel and axle safely stuck at the very uppermost region.

 In March at the season opening PAS Young Gun Sprint Car Series main for drivers 14-21, Williams earned his first ever sprint car win.  Williams, a talented 17-year-old racer from Victorville, who finished eighth in the VRA Sprint Car main on his first ever trip to the Ventura Raceway last Saturday night, was chased to the checkered by Lake Elsinore 19-year-old Parker Colston and Mikey Lovas of Menifee.

 17-year-old Trent Williams of Victorville won the season opener for The PAS Young Gun Sprints in March.  Media feel free to publish this photo and please give credit to Doug Allen.

DIRT TRACK SEASON HEATS UP AT ARIZONA SPEEDWAY
SOUTHWEST MODIFIED CHAMPIONSHIPS RETURN TO ARIZONA SPEEDWAY THIS SATURDAY

Brain Shultz will lead the IMCA South West Modifieds into Arizona Speedway this Saturday night as Cody Graham will look to finish 4
positions ahead of the L8 team to over take the lead 1/3rd of the way through this epic series. Both coming off of finishes outside of the top 5 last Saturday night on a tough wet track at Central Arizona Speedway this past weekend while Eric Center finished in the 6th position gaining valuable points currently sitting 3rd in the the modified championship.

Back to back winner and rookie to the X-Mod division Eric Winemiller has quickly set his sites on the championship this season as he pulled off his second consecutive win in the championship series this past weekend at Central Arizona Speedway. Trev Miller sits 2nd in the division after a 2nd place finish last Saturday night with Scott Starns sitting in 3rd. 2 time X-Mod champion Chris Caldwell who showed up in support of the division last Saturday was not allowed to race by track officials as it was discovered he did not have the required mandatory mufflers as he was forced to bring his back up car to the track after discovering a water leak in his fully legal C11 machine.

Desert Dwarf Cars will also return with the same card as ran at Central Arizona Speedway this past weekend as they are coming off a green to checkers run that highlighted Tony Martins green to checkers win.

The Robert Horne Ford Bombers will round out the card as Michael Brigner leads Virgil McArthur by 7 points ans sits only 10 points ahead of 3rd place Mark Farnes. Brigner and Farnes have both won races this season and McArthur will be searching for his first this Saturday night.

 (Perris, CA, April 29, 2014)  The wildly popular Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series will top the list of performers this Saturday night in a sprint car quadruple header at Perris Auto Speedway.  Joining the most exciting sprint cars series west of the Mississippi on the famous Riverside County half-mile clay oval will be The PAS Senior & Young Gun Sprint and the California Lightning Sprint Cars.  Spectator gates for the open wheel spectacular will open at 5:00 PM and the first race will take the green flag at 7:00.

 The racing table is already set for another appetizing battle between defending series champion Damion Gardner of Concord, California and 5-time series champ Mike Spencer of Temecula.  Gardner has won the first two races at The PAS in 2014, but each time has had to withstand a tremendous attack by Spencer.  In fact, the 32-year-old Cal Poly Pomona engineering graduate has passed Gardner for the lead in each race only to see the slender Northern California star get back by and be the first driver to arrive at the checkered flag.

 Damon Gardner #4 of Concord and Mike Spencer #50 of Temecula fight for the lead at the last Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Car race at The PAS.  Media, feel free to publish this photo and please give photo credit to Doug Allen.

 Thus far in 2014, there have been three races in the USAC/CRA Series.  Two at The PAS and one at Canyon Speedway Park in Peoria, Arizona.  In addition to his three main event triumphs, Gardner has one fast qualifying time and two heat race wins.  He swept the March 15th race at The PAS when he was fast qualifier, won his the heat and the main event earning a “Dean Thompson Award.”   If Gardner wins the main event this Saturday, he will become the first driver in the 11-year history of the Amsoil USAC/CRA Series to have won the first four main events of the year in a row.

 Spencer has out qualified the field at two of the three races and has one heat race win.

 Even though he has finished second to Gardner in the last two races, Spencer was 16th at the season opener in Arizona.  Thus, he is third in the championship standings coming into Saturday’s event.  Nic Faas of Huntington Beach is second in the title chase and has placed third and fourth in the two races at The PAS.  Gardner’s teammate last year, Faas moved onto the Josh Ford Motorsports team over the winter and comes into Saturday’s “Showdown at The PAS” 31-points behind the leader.  Yorba Linda’s Matt Mitchell, who finished third at the April 12th race at The PAS, is fourth in the standings followed by USAC/CRA newcomer Gary Taylor of Snohomish, Washington.  Taylor claimed third in the season opener and was sixth at the last race earlier this month.

 The top drivers will face a stiff test that they did not have at the last race at The PAS.  Anaheim’s Jake Swanson was about to take on the top stars for only the third time in the famous Moose Racing #92.  However, when the 21-year-old Cypress College student went out to wheel pack, the engine had no oil pressure.  He pulled the car into the pits and rather than risk damage to the expensive power plant, the team scratched the car for the night.    In his first two races in the car, he finished an impressive seventh and eighth.   

 Anaheim’s Jake Swanson has two top ten finishes in his first two races in the Moose Racing #92.  Media please feel free to publish this photo and please give photo credit to Doug Allen.

 In addition to the USAC/CRA Sprint Cars, The PAS Senior Sprints for drivers 45 and older, PAS Young Gun Sprints for drivers 14-21 and California Lightning Sprints will also be in action.

 2014 AMSOIL USAC/CRA Sprint Car Standings:

DUE TO FANS INPUT PERRIS MAKES CHANGE IN RACE NIGHT FORMAT!

from Scott Daloisio
 (Perris, CA, April 24, 2014)  Due to input from the racing fans, there will be a change in the race night format when the Amsoil USACCRA Sprint Cars, PAS Senior & Young Gun Sprints and the California Lightning Sprint Cars return to the “Southern California Home of Major League Sprint Car Racing,” Perris Auto Speedway, on May 3rd.

 The USAC/CRA main event has traditionally been the fourth and final main of the night.  Starting next Saturday it will be the second of the four main run.  A majority of the crowd comes to watch the USAC/CRA portion of the show and many of them travel long distances from as far away as Nevada, Arizona, Utah and Northern California.  Many would like to get an earlier start on their journey home.

 “In an effort to provide our loyal fans a better experience at the speedway, the main event lineup for May 3rd will be as follows,” Kazarian said on Wednesday morning.  “PAS Senior Sprints, will run first followed by USAC/CRA, PAS Young Guns and California Lightning Sprints.  This will allow those fans who are there for USAC/CRA only to not have to wait until the end of the night.”

 Normally PAS shows are over in a timely manner, but every so often, a show will run late.  That was the case with the 2014 season opener.  Numerous fans made contact with track management and also voiced their opinion on social media venues.  First word of the change on Wednesday drew a lot of attention on social media watering holes and it did ruffle a few feathers.

 “There were a few people who were unhappy when they heard of the change,” said longtime track announcer and publicist Scott Daloisio.  “They have to understand that about 80% of the fans are there for the USAC/CRA portion of the show.  Without those fans there, USAC/CRA would not be there and without USAC/CRA there would not be a sprint car show.  I talked to several people about it yesterday and when explained why the change was being made, they seemed to understand.”

 Open wheel shows are subject to delays when cars flip.

 “Flips in sprint car and midget racing are a part of the sport,” Daloisio said.  “That is something nobody has control over and it causes more time lost than anything else at all tracks.  When a car gets upside down even under the best circumstances it averages about 12 minutes until you are racing again.  The safety crew comes out and checks on the driver.  Then the car is picked up and taken back to the pits.  All of the remaining cars have to be pushed off to restart.  If it happens five times a night, that is one hour.  Once again, sprint cars getting upside down is part of the sport.”

 Before the May 3rd sprint car show, The PAS will host “Night of Destruction #2” this Saturday, April 26th.  The wild and crazy program will feature Figure 8 races, Figure 8 Trailer racing Democross and Spectator races.  Gates will open at 5:00 PM.  There will be an on track autograph & photo session at 5:30 and the first race will be at 7:00.

 For more information on The PAS call: (951) 940-0134.

 Camping for all events at The PAS is available for $25.00 per night.  The campground will open at noon on Friday.  Tailgating in the spectator parking lot will begin at 1:00 PM for all PAS events as well.

DOUGLASS MAKES IT TWO WINS IN A ROW IN PERRIS SENIOR SPRINTS!
 from Scott Daloisio
  (Perris, CA, April 17, 2014)  Sixty-two-year-old Bruce Douglass of Ventura, California made it two wins in a row in the The PAS Senior Sprint Car main event in front a packed house at the “So. Cal Sprint Car Spectacular” last Saturday night at Perris Auto Speedway.

 Bruce Douglass and car owner Victor Davis (in green) are two for two in PAS Senior Sprint Car action in 2014.  Media please feel free to publish this photo and please give photo credit to Doug Allen.

 Joining the STP World of Outlaws and the Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Cars on the prestigious card, the Senior Sprints drew their largest field to date when 19-cars signed in to race.

 The scheduled 20-lap main got off to a less than glorious start when Hacienda Heights racer Tony Lima flipped wildly in turn four.  The crash was so violent that it tossed the entire front axle and one of the wheels catapulting high into the air and subsequently stuck in the top of The PAS 36-foot high catch fence.  Much to the delight of the huge gathering, the former SCRA driver climbed out of extensively damaged bright red and yellow #30 sprint car under his own power.

 When the race was restarted it was shortened to 15-laps due to the length of time it took to clean up the mess from the Lima crash and make sure the fence was not damaged.  Popular Steve Ostling of Corona won the race to the first corner in Tobey Sampson’s #12 “Frankenstein” that was being raced on the night in honor of Bill and Evelyn Pratt.  The car had one of Pratt’s old hoods on and Sampson re-numbered the car from its normal #82 to Pratt’s #12.

 Ostling, who was affectionately known as “The Mexican National Champion” during his racing days, only held the lead till the back straightaway when pole sitter Ed Schwartz of Santa Fe Springs took the point.  Schwarz, a past winner at The PAS, maintained the lead until Douglass drove by in the Victor Davis blue Lucas Oil #13 on the fourth lap.  Once past, there was no catching the chatty racer and he drove the remaining 14-laps at the head of the pack for his second straight win.   Schwarz maintained the runner up spot to the finish with 2011 Senior champ Bill Badger of Santa Clarita third.  Defending champion Rick Hendrix of Palmdale was fourth and San Diego’s Jess Denome, who was also racing in the USAC/CRA Series on the night, was fifth.

 Corona’s Steve Brown was the main event “Hard Charger” finishing 9th after starting in 12th/

 Earlier in the night Denome and Hendrix won the two heat races.

 After the races at the track and online the next day many fans were thanking track officials for erecting the extra tall 36-foot high safety fence which protected them when Lima’s axle and wheel catapulted into the air.

 The Senior Sprints will be back in action along with the Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Cars, PAS Young Gun Sprints and the California Lightning Sprint Cars on May 3rd.

 Senior Sprint Main Event (with starting positions): 1. Bruce Douglass (3rd), 2. Ed Schwarz (1st), 3. Bill Badger (4th), 4. Rick Hendrix (5th), 5. Jesse Denome (6th), 6. Bob Alderman (8th), 7. Steve Ostling (2nd), 8. Rich Bender (9th), 9. Steve Brown (12th), 10. Bob Strait (13th), 11. Jim Giardina (14th), 12. Mike Collins (7th), 13. Joe Bowman (16th), 14. Brian Groseheider (17th), 15. Todd Boyy (15th), 16. Darren Slater (18th), 17. Royal Adderson (11th), 18. Tony Lima (10th)

Kreitz Returns to Victory at SSP on Sunday Night
from Todd fisher
 Newberrytown, PA (April 13, 2014)  Donnie Kreitz of Sinking Springs took the victory in the 5th Annual Sprint Car Spring Classic at the Susquehanna Speedway Park on Sunday night.  Tyler Ross of Lincoln University collected the 358 Sprint Car 20 lapper.

 By virtue of winning his heat race and pulling the no inversion pill, Blaine Heimbach took the early lead of the 410 Sprint Car 25-lapper.  As Heimbach set the pace of the race, with Lance Dewease and Danny Hotgraver in tow, Donnie Kreitz bagan picking of positions from his seventh place starting spot.  On lap 7, Kreitz moved past Holtgraver to claim third.  At the midway point, Kreitz moved past Dewease to claim the runner-up spot.  A caution flag on lap 14 negated the lead that Heimbach had built.  With Krietz restarting on Heimbachs rear bumper, Heimbach took off as the green flag flew.

 On lap 18, Kreitz slid in front of Heimbach coming out of turn 4 to take the lead.  However, Heimbach would not go away as he pursued Kreitz into lap traffic as the laps wound down.  With two laps to go, Heimbach made his move going into three and four but was unable to complete the pass as the lapped car slid up in front of him, blocking him from making the pass.  Kreitz went on to take the victory over Heimbach with Lance Dewease finishing third.  This was Kreitzs 30th career SSP victory putting him five wins away from all-time open wheel SSP feature win leader Johnny Mackison Sr. at 35 wins.  Out-of-staters Trey Starks and Danny Holtgraver finished fourth and fifth respectively.  Heat race wins went to Heimbach, Dewease and Zearfoss.    

 In the 358 Sprint Car night cap, Chandler Leiby took the lead from the front row.  Kevin Nouse immediately began to challenge from the runner-up spot after starting fourth.  Nouse took over the top spot on the third circuit. As a wild battle ensued for the lead, Leiby regained the lead with Brad McClelland close behind.  Nouse retired from the race on lap 11 when the caution flag flew.  Tyler Ross made it a three car battle for the lead midway through the race.  With five to go, Ross claimed the runner-up spot and passed Leiby with two to go to take the lead.  Ross went on to collect the feature victory over McClelland in second and Leiby had to settle for a strong third place finish.  Brock Zerafoss, who finished 7th in the 410 Sprint Car main event, came home fourth in the 358 Sprint Car feature.  Scott Fisher rounded out the top five.  McClelland and Nouse were the heat race winners.

 Racing action returns to the Big Track at SSP on Sunday night, April 19 when Figure 8 Racing returns to SSP along with the Late Models, Street Stocks, Xtreme Stocks, Road Warriors, Mini Vans/Jr. Road Warriors and the PENNMAR Vintage Cars.  The start time for racing is 6:00 p.m.

PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY BEGINS DRIVE TO $100,000.00 FOR RELAY FOR LIFE!
 from Scott Daloisio
(Perris, CA, April 9, 2014)   This Saturday night, April 12th, when Perris Auto Speedway hosts the So. Cal Sprint Car Spectacular” featuring the STP World of Outlaws, Amsoil USAC/CRA and PAS Senior Sprint Cars, the popular Riverside County oval will begin “The Drive for $1200,00.00” for the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.  Spectator gates will open at 4:00 PM on Saturday and the first race will bump off just after 7:00.

 2014 will mark the eighth consecutive year that the track has supported the Relay for Life.  To date, $89,711.00 has been collected and Perris Auto Speedway promoter Don Kazarian hopes to see that total top $100,000.00 in 2014.

 “This all boils down to our great fans,” Kazarian said.  “We have asked them to help us in this and they have done so every year.  From pocket change to hundred dollar bills, it all helps and our fans have been very generous in helping fight this dreaded disease.  We also have to thank all of our wonderful drivers.  They go into the stands at the events and collect money in their helmets.  That is where a majority of it comes form.  All of the fans and drivers have relatives or friends who have been affected by cancer and they know it is a horrible disease.  They all have given graciously to help.”

 In addition to this Saturday, there will be three other dates that the track will be collecting donations.  April 26th at Night of Destruction #2, May 24th Salute to Indy and July 4th.

 In the mid-1980s, Dr. Gordy Klatt, a Tacoma colorectal surgeon, wanted to enhance the income of his local American Cancer Society office. He decided to personally raise money for the fight against cancer by doing something he enjoyed—running marathons.

 In May 1985, Dr. Klatt spent a grueling 24 hours circling the track at Baker Stadium at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma for more than 83 miles. Throughout the night, friends donated $25 to run or walk 30 minutes with him. He raised $27,000 to fight cancer. That first year, nearly 300 of Dr. Klatt's friends, family, and patients watched as he ran and walked the course.

 While he circled the track those 24 hours, he thought about how others could take part. He envisioned a 24-hour team relay event that could raise more money to fight cancer. Months later he pulled together a small committee to plan the first team relay event known as the City of Destiny Classic 24-Hour Run Against Cancer.

 In 1986, 19 teams took part in the first team relay event on the track at the colorful, historical Stadium Bowl and raised $33,000. An indescribable spirit prevailed at the track and in the tents that dotted the infield.

 The vision turned into over 5,200 Relay For Life events across the United States today and nearly $5 billion in fundraising to save lives from cancer.  In addition, the American Cancer Society licenses twenty non-governmental cancer organizations in other countries to hold Relay For Life events to battle cancer across the globe.

For 28 years, Relay For Life has provided inspiration and hope for millions of cancer survivors and

STEVE KINSER GETS ONE LAST SHOT FOR PERRIS WORLD OF OUTLAWS WIN THIS SATURDAY!
from Scott Daloisio
(Perris, CA, April 8, 2013)  When it comes to most racetracks around the country where the legendary STP World of Outlaws compete, the name “Kinser” sits on top of the all-time victory list.  Perris Auto Speedway, “The Southern California Home of Major League Sprint Car Racing,” is no different.  However, at most tracks the first name of the “Kinser” topping the win list is “Steve.”  That is not the story at Perris as the driver with the most World of Outlaws wins there is Steve’s cousin Mark Kinser.  In fact, Steve Kinser has never won a main event at the famous Riverside County clay oval.  And, Saturday will probably be his last chance as 2014 will be his final full season of chasing the circuit from one end of the country to the other.

 The Outlaws first came to Perris Auto Speedway on November 1st, 1996 and Mark Kinser, who retired from racing in 2006, won the main event.  In fact, he won the first five World of Outlaw main events ever staged at the track through Halloween night in 1998.  Since then the name Kinser has not appeared on the victory ledger at The PAS again.  Johnny Herrera, Craig Dollansky, Danny Lasoski (twice), Darryn Pittman (twice), Kerry Madsen, Joey Saldana and Jason Meyers have all etched their name on the victory list since Mark Kinser’s last triumph.

 Over his amazing career, the 59-year-old from Bloomington, Indiana has won an amazing 20 STP World of Outlaws Series Championships.  In addition, the racing grandfather, who will turn 60-years-old in less than two months, has won an incredible 577 WoO main events, but none of them have come at The PAS.

 “He has been close with some second place finishes,” Perris Auto Speedway promoter Don Kazarian said.  “He was leading on the last lap or the next to last lap a few years ago when a lapped car got into him coming off turn two costing him the victory.  Needless to say he was not happy and who could blame him?  I know as a promoter I am supposed to be impartial, but deep down inside I will be pulling for him on Saturday night.”


 Steve Kinser during the February 1988 World of Outlaws race at legendary Ascot Park in Gardena, California.

 For years Kinser, who won an IROC Race at Talladega 20 years ago against a field that included Dale Earnhardt Sr., Dale Jarrett, Al Unser Jr., Mark Martin, Danny Sullivan and Rusty Wallace, has been known to his legion of fans as the “King of the Outlaws.”  This year’s season has been dubbed “Salute to The King” as fans bid the racing legend a fond adieu.

 While it may be his farewell season, Kinser has let it be known that he is running for the championship and plans on adding to his already record number of wins on the tour.  Thus far he has recorded one win in 2014.  That victory came at Valusia Speedway Park in Florida in February in his Tony Stewart owned #11 winged sprint car.  Heading into this weekend’s event at The PAS, Kinser is seventh in WoO points with a win, four top five and eight top ten’s in the first 10 races of the 2014 campaign.

 “I just hope that sometime during the night the entire crowd gets up and gives Steve Kinser a standing ovation for all he has done for the sport of sprint car racing for more than three decades,” Kazarian said.  “It is going to be an emotional night for a lot of people as another driver who raced in Southern California at Ascot is stepping aside.  Only a handful of drivers who raced there are still competing today.  It is sad to think of him not being here the next time the Outlaws come to town as another racing era is coming to an end.”


 Steve Kinser being interviewed by Chris Holt at the 1988 Pacific Coast Open at Ascot. 

 Holt will be interviewing Kinser this Saturday at The PAS.  The trophy girl is Kara Hendrick.  A resident of Chino, Hendrick was a big Steve Kinser fan. She lost her life in a USAC Midget race at Cajon Speedway in El Cajon three years after this photo was taken.  Media please feel free to publish this photo and please give photo credit to Scott Daloisio.

 The Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Cars will be joining the Outlaws on this historic night that will see the two groups racing together for the very first time.  Also, The PAS Senior Sprint Cars, for drivers 45 and older, will be in action.  Advance tickets for Saturday’s “So Cal Sprint Car Spectacular,” which include a free Outlaws spectator pit pass, are available at the following link http://dirtcar.ticketforce.com/ordertickets.asp?p=424&backurl=default.asp or by calling toll free to: 877 395-8606.

Rodriguez Victorious at SSPs Opening Night on Saturday
Next Wednesday Test & Tune on April 9

from Todd Fisher
Newberrytown, PA (April 5, 2014) ? The Susquehanna Speedway Park opened up on Saturday night for the 60th season with four exciting divisions on a cold and frigid night.  Dover?s J.R. Rodriguez took the victory in the Late Model 25 lapper on opening night.  Mt. Wolfs Gary Potts took the win by leading the final three laps of the Street Stock 20 lapper.  Scott Geesey of Wellsville took the win in the 25-lap Super Sportsman tour race.  Harlon Leppo won the Legends Cars 20-lap feature event.

 Devin Frey started on the pole position with J.R. Rodriguez starting beside him at the green of the 25-lap Late Model feature event.  Rodriguez grabbed the early lead and set the pace.  Billy Wampler started in fourth and made his way to the rear bumper of the leader by the midway point.  A few caution flag periods bunched up the field but Wampler was unable to make the pass for the lead.  Rodriguez took the checkers over Wampler with Matt Murphy finishing strong in third.  Devin Frey finished fourth with Scott Richwine rounding out the top five.  Chase Billet and Steve Billet were the heat race winners.        
 Danny Beard grabbed the early lead of the 20-lap Street Stock feature, however on lap 3 Jasen Geesaman took over the spot.  Geesaman held off Gary Potts and Beard until mechanical failure forced him from the race on lap 18.  On the restart, Potts set the pace up front and went on to win the season opener for the Street Stocks.  Jim Palm Jr. made a last lap pass to finish second with Beard settling for third.  Scott Thunberg and Aaron Beard finished fourth and fifth places respectively.  Danny Beards and Potts were heat race victors.

 Scott Geesey took the early lead of the 25-lap Super Sportsman feature from the pole position.  Frankie Herr quickly grabbed the runner-up spot with Chad Trout close in top.  The top three battle for the top spot with Herr taking the lead on lap 13.  Geesey wrestled the lead back on lap 17 until lap 21 when Chad Trout took the top spot to set the pace.  A caution with one lap remaining made it a one lap shoot-out for the victory.  On the restart, Geesey blasted back into the lead.  In the middle of turn 3 and 4 on the final circuit, Trout made one last attempt to regain the top spot.  Trout spun in front of the field, sending Frankie Herr flipping.  After a brief red flag, Geesey went on to take the win over Mike Enders and Scott Dellinger.  Chris Meleason and Russ Mitten rounded out the top five.  Heat race wins went to Jaremi Hanson, Meleason, Trout and Geesey.  Bobby Hockenberry was the consolation winner.

 In the 20-lap Legends Car feature, Harlon Leppo held off a late race challenge from Lucas Montgomery to take the victory.   Montgomery failed to finish the race as he spun just short of the finish line at the end.  Bill Diehl came across the line in second, followed by Jacob Feltch, Bob Stough and C.J. Quirk.  Scott Houdeshell, Diehl and Leppo were heat race winners.

 Racing action returns to the Big Track at SSP on Saturday night, April 12 on York County Racing Club Night with the Late Models, Street Stocks, Xtreme Stock Cars, Road Warriors/Mini Vans and PA Sprint Series.  Then the 410 Super Sprint Cars return to SSP on Sunday April 13 along with the 358 Sprint Cars in the 5th Annual Sprint Car Spring Classic.

WORLD OF OUTLAWS AT PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY NEXT SATURDAY!
 from Scott Daloisio
(Perris, CA, April 5, 2013)  The legendary STP World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series has been winding its way through Northern and Central California for nearly a month.  It will conclude its early season tour of the Golden State next Saturday night, April 12th, when it joins the Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Cars and The PAS Senior Sprints in the So. Cal. Sprint Car Spectacular at Perris Auto Speedway.  After that event, like snowbirds heading for Florida for the winter, the World of Outlaws will begin the journey back to the Midwest and east where it spends a majority of the warmer months of the year.

 After three races in Florida during February to open the 2014 campaign, the tour and its bevy of superstar drivers loaded up their haulers and headed west in early March.  Their first stop was in “Sin City,” Las Vegas, and then Tucson, Arizona before heaing into California.    Going into this weekend’s races at the Calastoga Speedway in Northern California’s gorgeous Wine Country, the competitive series has produced seven different winners in seven different races since leaving Florida. Three of the winners, Paul McMahon, Brad Sweet and Rico Abreau, are California natives.  Other winners on the western swing have been Oklahoma’s Darryn Pittman, North Dakota’s Donny Schatz, David Gravel of Connecticut and Australian Kerry Madsen.

Attica Cancels Friday Racing, Saturday's Spring Nationals Still On
    ATTICA, Ohio – Heavy rains throughout Thursday night forced the cancellation of the first night of the HD Supply/Construction Equipment and Supply Spring Nationals at Attica Raceway Park for Friday. However, Saturday’s racing is still on at Attica.
 
“We’re keeping our fingers crossed. The forecast calls for warmer, dryer, windy weather throughout the afternoon Friday and we’re hopeful that provides significant drying and we can get Saturday’s races in,” said Rex LeJeune, Director of Operations at ARP.
 
LeJeune said Attica officials will make a more definitive decision on Saturday’s racing by Saturday morning.

Gates open Saturday at 3:30 p.m. with racing underway at 7 p.m.
 
Saturday’s race will be the 102nd appearance of the University of Northwestern Ohio All Star Circuit of Champions at Attica and they will be gunning for $10,000 to win. The UMP Late Models and 305 sprints are also on the racing card.

The American Three Quarter Midget Racing Association (ATQMRA) is set to kick off on its 58th season
(BRODHEADSVILLE, PA 4-3-14) The American Three Quarter Midget Racing Association (ATQMRA) is set to kick off on its 58th season of TQ Midget car racing with the first main event of 2014 taking place at Lehighton’s Mahoning Valley Speedway paved ¼-mile oval on Saturday evening April 19.

Mahoning Valley is considered one of the fastest tracks that the TQ’s race on as speeds exceed 100 mph and hold the record as the quickest cars to ever record a lap there when Matt Roselli circled the speedway in 8.825-seconds on September 29, 2012 at better than 101-mph.

The season opening Mahoning race will also serve as the first in the “Triple Crown” events. New for 2014, a special three-race series of features will be held starting at Mahoning Valley then onto Bethel Motor Speedway in White Lake, NY and conclude at Oswego Speedway’s inner oval as part of the Bud Light Classic Weekend on August 30.

Aside from the regular feature earnings, there is an additional $1500 that will be divided among all race teams who partake in all three Triple Crown races.

The TQ’s of the ATQMRA have a long and rich history of winged and non-winged racing that stretches across five decades. The club will hit tracks throughout New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey this season and with the add-on incentive of the Triple Crown it is a great enhancement to an already solid product.

Ryan Tidman and the Boyd Racing Team captured their third consecutive ATQMRA championship last year and are set for another title run starting with the April 19 lid-lifter at Mahoning Valley. Matt Janisch beat Tidman in last year’s opener at Mahoning.

They will have plenty to deal with as with the likes of Roselli, Buddy Sload and Mahoning’s own multi-time champion Earl Paules, Jr. Tidman and Roselli are the active leading winners at Mahoning with five victories each. Race time is at 6:00 p.m.

Complete info on the Triple Crown and all of the 2014 season can be found on the club’s website at www.atqmra.org. Additional news can be accessed on facebook.com/ATQMRA and Twitter @ATQMRA.

COMING EVENTS:
  April 19, Mahoning Valley Speedway, Lehighton, Pa.
  May 3, Borger’s Speedway, Brodheadsville, Pa.
  May 17, Wall Stadium Speedway, Wall Township, NJ

World of Outlaws Sprint Cars
Calistoga Speedway April 5, 6

from Bonnie C Chishom
We’re Starting Early on Sunday to Salute “The King”
After a full evening of World of Outlaws action on Saturday, April 5, the “greatest show on dirt” will come back to Calistoga Speedway on Sunday evening for a doubleheader of weekend racing action. Racing will start an hour earlier on Sunday---6pm---so that everyone can get home earlier. Everyone on Sunday will get a hero card from “The King”, Steve Kinser, to commemorate his last full time year on the WoO tour. Spectator gates open at 3 pm both days. Racing starts at 7 pm on Saturday and 6 pm on Sunday. Buy your tickets in advance and get a FREE Fan Pit Pass. You get close to the action while the teams are getting ready to race and it’s a great chance to get a Steve Kinser autograph, too.

You can get a Steve Kinser autograph any time during the weekend. But there are two special times on Sunday that you don’t want to miss:

Sunday: 4 pm: Steve Kinser special autograph session near the grandstand
6 pm: Special Presentation by Calistoga Mayor Chris Canning honoring “The King”

Ticket info is at: woocalistoga.com/tickets

The “New Calistoga” is Ready For Racing
All of the off-season work to re-groom and re-shape the 75 year old Calistoga Speedway is paying off. The half mile oval is in great shape despite the rain over the last week. The forecast is “warm, sunny and ready for racin!”

There is Non-wing Racing Action, too
This weekend at Calistoga Speedway is a rare chance to see both winged and non-wing racing action at the same time. Joining the World of Outlaws---the country's fastest winged sprint cars----on the high speed half mile oval are the non-wing Western Classic sprint cars of the United States Auto Club. Two shows for the price of one.




April 2 2014 I Got this to late for posting yesterday

SSP Going From Dirt Track to Asphalt Track in Near Future
Fishers Finished With Weather Related Issues
From Todd Fisher
Newberrytown, PA (April 1, 2014)  The Susquehanna Speedway Park will be changed from a successful dirt track to a one-of-a-kind asphalt track on the local Central PA racing scene.  Local native and SSP owner Todd Fisher has an extensive background in asphalt racing while working for the Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina (1993-2000) and the Hardeeville Motor Speedway in South Carolina (2000-2002) before purchasing SSP at the end of the 2003 racing season.

 Ground will be broken immediately as J.R. Rodriguez from JRs Paving whose home base is directly across from the speedway.  Rodriguez, an expert in asphalt and driveway sealing for any project will take on his biggest task yet with the covering of the clay with asphalt.  Tim Hahn of Madison House East will provide workers to assist Rodriguez in this huge job that has time implications.   

 This will be a great addition to our business, commented Jake Jones of Millers Racing Products in Mechanicsburg.  We will expand our business to all new levels and immediately look into expanding our current retail shop to cover the impending demands for the pats needed to convert the dirt cars to asphalt.

 The Garage owned by Mike Keller in Stevens, Pennsylvania will also assist the customers on the other side of the river.  His extensive background in drag racing will also help racers make the conversion much quicker.

 To assist with the transition, Hoosier Racing Tires has developed a special dirt/asphalt combination tire for the racers to adapt to the hard surface much quicker.  All interested parties should contact Bob Wirts of Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic for the technical details.  Insinger Performance and Sunoco Racing Fuels, the official Fuel Supplier of SSP, has also developed a special blend of fuel for SSP to allow for maximum horsepower without giving up any torque.

 Coca Cola, the official beverage supplier, is also very excited about the news.  The will have a special formula of Coke Syrup that will be applied to the upper groove of the track every week to provide at least two lanes of side-by-side racing every time the cars hit the track.  They are in the process of developing a permanent solution that will not need to be applied every race, but once every five years.

 The properties around the speedway will be on the market quickly as the great influx of racing fans will flock to the area.  Any interested parties should contact Rhonda Fisher from Coldwell Banker in York to get the best deal on real estate in the area.  Rhonda can find the best mobile homes in the area at the Conewago Valley Mobile Home Park located just down the road from the track.

 For those purchasing vacant lots in the area, Donnie Broderick of Superior Homes in Lancaster can assist with new modular homes of great quality and price.  For those that want to renovate their already built homes, Tony Sipling from AS2 Home Improvements will do a masterful job with any project small or large.  Lee Manuel of Pest-Rite, a locally owned Pest and Termite Control Expert from Manchester, will be able to help home buyers rid their purchases of pesky inhabitants.

 If you find that you do not have enough storage in your new purchase, a great solution is an Amish Built shed, garage or barn from Fisher Structures in Lewisberry.  They have the best prices in the Central PA area for quality outbuildings.

 To deal with the huge influx of asphalt starved short track fans in Central PA, Carl Hughes will offer additional parking at the SSP neighbor, the Newberrytown Peddlers Market.  The market is open on Saturday and Sunday before the races begin for those early-arriving fans.

 J&K Salvage of York will be giving the best prices for those drivers that want to scrap their dirt racecars.  If persons cannot get their cars to the salvage yard, Mike Walls of Mike?s Towing will be more than helpful to assist anyone in need.  For those special, hard-to-find parts from factory-manufactured asphalt cars, Eichelbergers U-Pull-It in Spring Grove has more than 1000vehicles on property.  With a few simple tools and a little elbow grease a person can save as much as 80% over new auto parts prices at Eichelbergers U-Pull-It.  If a person still can?t find that part, they can check online at www.rockauto.com.

 Great used cars that may be converted to asphalt racers can be found at Credit Connection Auto Sales with three locations in Harrisburg, Carlisle and York.  They also specialize in imports, trucks, SUVs and vans as well.

 The only downside to the announcement is that Dain Hursh, owner of the newly renovated Dover Car Wash on Main Street, is still hoping to keep the business open from racecars from surrounding dirt tracks.  The Dover Car Wash is one of the very few area car washes that encourage dirt racers to bring their vehicles there to be cleaned after a hard night of racing.  Fans are also encouraged to bring in their vehicles as well for a quick wash after watching a night of exciting dirt racing.

 Anyone wishing to preserve the memories of the track in its dirt heyday, can find photos at Lucky Shot Photos online.  For those wishing to find videos of the days past by, contact the speedway offices and they will put you in touch with Dave Zortman, SSP videographer.

 Fisher would like to conclude this major announcement by saying ?Happy April Fools Day.  We will see how many people (fools) start this rumor and post on message boards without actually reading the entire press release.      

 Although this fictional story may be untrue and a shameless sponsor plug, Todd Fisher would like to thank the great businesses mentioned for the support and continued partnerships.  We look forward to an exciting and enjoyable 2014 racing season and beyond??????.on dirt.

New Managment for Delta Speedway in Stockton Cal
Shawn Conde and Bob Panella Jr. are the new track promoters at Delta Speedway in Stockton. This change was officially approved on March 19, 2014. There is a lot of work to be completed to get Delta Speedway ready for the 2014 race season based on this very recent development. But, Shawn and Bob are up to the challenge and are ready to get to work. They are looking forward to making a few improvements, but most of all just want to provide a great experience for families, racers and fans each and every night. The hope is, for the most part, to maintain the 2014 race schedule that was previously posted by Delta Speedway. They are doing their best to be ready for the April 26th "Play Day", but will post any changes to the schedule on Facebook, Instagram and our soon to be developed website @ www.deltaspeedwaystockton.com. They do not want to conflict with the race schedule of their friends at Dixon Speedway and will be cognizant of that schedule if any changes must be made. Shawn and Bob thank everyone for the kind words and excitement people have been expressing regarding their new venture over the last week. They value the relationship they have with each and every racer, friend and fan, hope to continue to grow and expand those relationships and can't wait to see you at the track!

FREE FAN PIT PASS WITH ADVANCE TICKET PURCHASE
FOR PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY WORLD OF OUTLAWS!

from Scott Daloisio
 (Perris, CA, March 21, 2013)  Have you ever sat in the stands at a Major League Baseball game and wished you could sneak down to the dugout to see what goes on during the game?   If you tried you probably would leave the stadium in handcuffs.  Things will be a little different for the So. Cal Sprint Car Spectacular featuring the legendary STP World of Outlaws, USAC/CRA and PAS Senior Sprint Cars at Perris Auto Speedway on April 12th.  Fans who order tickets in advance online or via phone will get a free spectator pit pass so they can see the cars, drivers and crews of the fabled WoO Series in action all night long.

 The process is simple and fast.  Fans can go online at http://dirtcar.ticketforce.com/ordertickets.asp?p=424&backurl=default.asp or call 877 395-8606.  With their purchase they will get a free spectator pit pass.  The pass will be good from the time spectator gates open until the teams load up their haulers and head on down the road to the next race at El Paso Speedway Park on April 15th.

 “This is a unique opportunity for all fans,” Perris Auto Speedway promoter Don Kazarian said.  “It is good for fans of all ages including children.  They can walk up, meet the drivers and crews, and watch them work on their cars before, during and after races, get autographs, take photos and buy the teams merchandise.  The Outlaws  understand the importance of marketing and they welcome  the interaction with the fans during the shows.” Another important factor in fans having access to the Outlaw pits is the possibility that Steve Kinser, widely
considered the greatest sprint car driver of all-time, will be making his final Southern California appearance.  The Bloomington, Indiana native has been coming to the Southland since the 1970’s. Over the winter the 59-year-old racing superstar announced that 2014 would be his last full-time season on the Outlaw
tour.  Over the years, the National Sprint Car Hall of Famer has won 20 WoO championships and a mind blowing 576 A main events.

 “Steve Kinser’s numbers are staggering,” Kazarian said.  “He is undeniably the greatest sprint car driver of all

time and there will probably never be another like him.  He is literally the “Babe Ruth of Sprint Car Racing.”  For

race fans who have never seen him race, it will be good to come to this event just so they can say they saw him.

And, with the fan pit pass, fans can get up close to him.  It may well be their last chance.  Missing Steve Kinser is

like missing Michael Jordan in basketball or Wayne Gretzky in hockey.”

 Kazarian then continued.

 “If Steve Kinser is the “Babe Ruth of Sprint Car Racing,” then Sammy Swindell is “The Lou Gehrig,” he said.“Who knows how much longer Sammy will be coming west to race.  Again, it will be great for fans to come and meet him with their spectator pit pass, too”

 Swindell, who will be 59 in October, is a three time World of Outlaws champion.  He has 292 lifetime WoO wins and that ranks second only to Kinser.  While the pair has been joined at the hip for decades after being the first true superstars in the series, their rivalry over the years has been one of the fiercest in motorsports.

 In addition to Kinser and Swindell, all of the top WoO stars will be on hand including last year’s Perris winner Darryn Pittman of Oklahoma, 5-tiume series champion Donny Schatz of South Dakota, Australia’s Kerry Madsen, Steve Kinser’s oldest son Kraig, Pennsylvania’s Cody Darrah, Joey Saldana of Indiana, Tennessee’s Jason Sides and Californian’s Tim Kaeding, Paul McMahon and Brad Sweet.

 Not to be lost is the fact that the show is going to be a historic night of racing not only for Southern California, but
for the entire sprint car world.  For the first time ever the World of Outlaws and a USAC 410 sprint car series -  
USAC/CRA - will be racing on the same card.  Both series will stage complete shows with qualifying,preliminaries and A-main events.  In addition, the fast growing PAS Senior Sprint Cars for drivers 45 and older will also be in action on the busy racing night,

PAS YOUNG GUNS AND SENIOR SPRINT CARS OPEN SEASON SATURDAY!
from Scott Daloisio
(Perris, CA, March 12, 2013)  Perris Auto Speedway’s Senior Sprint Car and Young Gun Sprint Car Series’ will open their 2014 season this Saturday night, March 15th, along with the Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Cars and the California Lightning Sprint Cars at the annual Sokola Shootout.  It will be the fourth season of action for the Senior Sprints and the second season for the Young Guns.  Spectator gates will open at 5:00 PM and racing will commence at 7:00.

 The Senior Sprints is for drivers 45-years-old and over and the Young Guns is for drivers from the 14-21.  The Young Guns cannot have any prior sprint car racing experience when they enter the series.  The Seniors are more than welcome to do double duty and also run with the USAC/CRA portion of the show.  The Young Guns cannot.

 “Originally we allowed younger USAC/CRA drivers to run with the Young Guns when we started the class last year,” promoter Don Kazarian said.  “We quickly learned that was a mistake/.  They have too much experience for the new Young Guns and it showed on the track.  That is not what this is all supposed to be about.  It is about younger drivers with like ability coming out and getting their laps in and honing their skills.  Then, when it is their time, they will be able to comfortably move up to the USAC/CRA Series.”

 Last year’s champion, 18-year-old Logan Williams of Yorba Linda, is moving up to the USAC/CRA Series full-time this season after spending a full season with the Young Guns.  He will be racing alongside his Hall of Fame father Rip and old siblings Cody and Austin.  Kazarian thinks he will do well in the series and thinks his time in the Young Guns will help him.

 “Logan ran all but one race in the Young Gun Series last season and all of those laps will help him,” Kazarian said.  “It will give him more confidence and it will do the same for other Young Guns who move up.  They will be prepared.”

 Over the years a lot of teams came out with a driver they thought was ready only to be humbled once they got on the track in the USAC/CRA Series/.  Humbled to the point that they wrecked cars (theirs and other drivers) and quit or they just could not keep up the pace and quit as well.  Thus, many racing careers ended before they could really get started.

 “I have said it before and I will say it again, a driver jumping into the USAC/CRA Series before he is ready is like feeding him to the lions,” Kazarian said.  “USAC/CRA is one of the best sprint car series in the nation.  The drivers are bona fide stars and they do not mess around.  How can somebody who has never raced before not be nervous when they line up for their first heat race and Damion Gardner, Mike Spencer and Cory Kruseman are in it?  No way in heck they cannot be nervous.  It is the same with new drivers in the Senior Sprint Series.”

 Unlike the Young Guns, the Senior Sprints is a mixed bag of drivers.  On one hand, you may have a guy who has sat in the stands all of his life, but who never had the time or the funds to do it.  Now that he is a little more established, he gives it a try.  You also have a lot of drivers who have raced for years in the upper divisions of open wheel racing.  They still want to race, but they want to do it in a more subdued atmosphere.

 In the first three years of The PAS Senior Sprint Car Series, the three champions - Bill Badger of Sana Clarita, Bruce Douglass of Ventura and Palmdale’s Rick Hendrix - have all been over 60-years of age.  Defending champion Hendrix is a three-time USAC champion (Western Midgets, TQ’s and Western Sprints).

 2013 Perris Auto Speedway Senior Sprint Car Champion Rick Hendrix of Palmdale, California.

 “Many of the drivers in the Senior Sprints have been racing for a long time,” Kazarian said.  “They can jump in and run with the USAC/CRA guys and hold their own quite well.”

 Both of the classes are essentially trophy only classes.  The Young Guns do have a $2,900.00 point fund they are racing for in 2014.  Ironically. that was mostly put up by the guys associated with the Senior Sprint Series.

 Kazarian noted that interest is up for both classes for 2014 and lots of new drivers have been testing at the track.  Drivers in each class run hot laps, a heat race and a main event.  Based on the quality of the driving exhibited by the Young Guns in 2013, Kazarian has increased their main events from 12 to 15-laps.  The Senior Sprint main events will be 20-laps.

 Adult tickets for Saturday are $25.00.  Seniors 65 and older get in for $20.00.  For active military members with proper id, teens 13-18 with their school id and kids 6-12, it just $5.00.  Children 5 and under are admitted free.

 For more information on The PAS call: (951) 940-0134.

 Camping for all events at The PAS is available for $25.00 per night.  The campground will open at noon on Friday.  Tailgating in the spectator parking lot will begin at 1:00 PM for all PAS events as well.
