"It was a perfect Hollywood ending last year to win the race and have the vets celebrate with us in victory circle. I'm going for an encore performance for the Hollywood ending."

 The association with the group has the support of team owner Dan Motter.

"To help draw attention to this worthwhile program and to honor the vets that will be joining us at Perris, we will be displaying the Workshops for Warriors logo on our car and will give them name entitlement," he said before his team and officials from HE&M Saw toured the Workshops for Warriors facility in San Diego.

FANS GET THE BEST OF TWO SPRINT CAR WORLDS WITH WORLD OF OUTLAWS AND USAC
SATURDAY AT PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY!

 from Scott Daloisio
(Perris, CA, April 14, 2015)   Fans attending this Saturday’s “So Cal Showdown” at Perris Auto Speedway will have a rare chance to see two of North America’s premiere sprint car series and many of the top stars in the nation racing on the same racetrack on the same night.  The legendary World of Outlaws, who will be making their only Southern California appearance of 2015, and the Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Cars will be racing together for only the second time ever.  Fans who order advance reserved tickets for the rarely seen doubleheader will receive a free “World of Outlaws Fan Pit Pass.”   Those tickets can be ordered via phone or online at 1-877-395-8606 or http://dirtcar.ticketforce.com/ordertickets.asp?p=558&backurl=default.asp  In addition to advance tickets, there will be plenty of tickets available for everyone at the track on race night.
 
The two series first appeared together last year at Perris Auto Speedway.  The success of the show made it a no brainer to do it again.  Both the World of Outlaw’s and the USAC/CRA Series are comprised of cars with 410 cubic inch engines.  The chassis’ and most of the components on the cars are virtually the same with the exception of the large wings the World of Outlaws cars have on top of the roll cage and on the nose of the car.  The result is two different racing styles. 
 
“We ran the two groups together last year for the first time the fans loved it,” promoter Don Kazarian said.  “They were able to see the back em’ in, side by side style of the traditional USAC sprint cars and the amazing drive it in hard speed of the World of Outlaws.  The fans thought it was incredible and they let us know they wanted to see that show again so we are giving them their chance on Saturday.  It will be the only time fans can see these two special groups racing together all season long.”
 
In addition to it being the one and only time to see the World of Outlaws race with USASC/CRA this year, it will be the last time to see the Outlaws in Southern California for the year as well.  After Saturday’s event, they head east to Mesquite, Texas for a race the following weekend and they will not be back in Southern California until 2016.
 
“Fans will get to see some of the all-time greats of the sport in each series this weekend,” Kazarian said on Monday.  “Guys like multi-time champions Donny Schatz (6-time Outlaw champ), Mike Spencer (5-time USAC/CRA champ), Damion Gardner (3-time USAC/CRA champion) and Jason Meyers (2-time and the only World of Outlaws champ from California).  Then you throw in stars like Brad Sweet, Matt Mitchell, last year’s PAS winner Joey Saldana, Jake Swanson, Brody Roa, Shane Stewart, Kerry Madsen, the Williams brothers and more.  Great opportunity to see two groups of great drivers and cars all in one night.” 
 
In addition to the Outlaws and USAC/CRA, The PAS Senior Sprints will be in action.  The fifth year series is comprised of drivers 45-years-old and older.  The drivers who won the first four championships in the series, Bill Badger (2011), Bruce Douglass (2012 & 2014) and Rick Hendrix (2013), will all be in action on Saturday. 
 
Spectator gates will open at 4:00 PM with racing at 7:00.  Fans who have a “World of Outlaws Fan Pit Pass” will be admitted to the World of Outlaws pits where they can see the cars up close, meet the drivers, get autographs and buy team merchandise all night long.

(Perris, CA, April 14, 2015)   With the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series headed to Perris Auto Speedway for the only time in 2015, it is time to check up on the all-time winners list at the track.  Since the first time the Outlaws rolled into town during The PAS inaugural season in 1996, the legendary sprint car series has made 15 visits to the famous Riverside County half-mile clay oval.  Eight different World of Outlaws drivers have stood on the PAS victory podium. 
 
The all-time leading winner in World of Outlaws main events at The PAS is Mark Kinser.  The Oolitic, Indiana resident and 2014 inductee into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame won the first five WoO main events at the track with his famous father, Karl, turning the wrenches.  In February of 1999, Albuquerque, New Mexico’s Johnny Herrera became the first driver other than Kinser to win a WoO main at The PAS.  
 
Since Kinser’s PAS victory streak ended, seven different drivers have won the past 10 WoO races at the track.  Only Dover, Missouri’s Danny “The Dude” Lasoski, Daryn Pittman of Owasso, Oklahoma and Brownsburg, Indiana’s Joey Saldana have been able to score more than one win and each of them has two victories.  Saldana, who is the defending race champion, scored his other PAS win in 2012.

Next Wednesday Test & Tune on April 8

from Todd Fisher
Newberrytown, PA (April 4, 2015) ?

Justin Ehrhart started on the pole position with Gene Knaub starting beside him at the green of the 25-lap BRC Late Model feature event.  Knaub grabbed the early lead and set the pace with Ehrhart in tow.  A few caution flag periods bunched up the field early on in the race.  At the finish, Knaub took the victory over Ehrhart.  A battle for the third place podium finish found Chase Billet holding off Billy Wampler at the end.  J.R. Rodriguez rounded out the top five.  Justin Ehrhart and Gene Knaub were the heat race winners.        

From the front row, Matt Wampler grabbed the early lead of the 20-lap Street Stock feature over Eric McClane.  Richard Bossinger took the top spot from Wampler on lap 4. Scott Thunberg scooted by Wampler to take the runner-up spot on the eighth circuit.  A flat tire on the Bossinger car on a lap 8 restart put him from the lead to the rear, putting Scott Thunberg into the lead.   Thunberg led lap 9 with Jim Palm Jr. taking the top spot on lap 10 and he never looked back.  Palm went on to take the victory with Jimmy Coombs following across the line in second, besting Jasen Geesaman by about a foot.  Chris Derr finished in fourth with Thunberg rounding out the top five.  Coombs and Bossinger were heat race victors. 

Frankie Herr took the early lead of the 25-lap Super Sportsman feature from the pole position.  Kevin Nouse quickly grabbed the runner-up spot on lap 2 after starting in the 10th position at the start.  Gregg Foster raced close behind in third.  Cautions on lap 7 & 8 allowed Nouse to restart on the rear bumper of Herr, however he could not make the winning pass.  The remainder of the race went caution free with Herr taking the checkers over Nouse.  Foster settled for third with Rich Eichelberger finishing in fourth after starting 14th at the beginning of the race.  Mike Enders rounded out the top five.  Heat race wins went to Chad Criswell, Herr and Foster.

from Scott Daloisio
(Ventura, CA, April 2, 2015)   Race organizer Mike Grosswendt is promising a great night of racing, nostalgic Beatles music and fan fun when the All Coast Challenge takes place at the gorgeous beach side Ventura Raceway on Saturday night, May 9th.  The Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Cars will be the only class racing on the program.  It will be the only night the 12-year series appears at Ventura in 2015.  Spectator gates will open at 3:00 PM and qualifying will begin at 5:30.

The race is expected to draw one of the largest car counts on the 2015 USAC/CRA championship schedule.  The 30-lap main event will pay $5,000.00 to win and $500.00 to start.  The winner will also receive a specially designed, one of a kind trophy.  In addition to the regular stars and cars of the West Coast’s number-one sprint car series, including Damion Gardner, Mike Spencer, Matt Mitchell, Brody Roa, Jake Swanson and the Williams brothers, the prestigious race is expected to draw teams from the local VRA(Ventura Racing Association) organization, Northern California and Arizona.  Grosswendt is offering Arizona teams that tow to the race $500.00 in tow money to be a part of the affair.

 “I want this race to have a real party atmosphere,” Grosswendt said.  “I am determined to make this as special of an event as possible.  I want everyone to come have fun, see a great race and be on their way home before 10:00.  Last year we had a lot of people show up who had not been to Ventura in a while.  This year we expect to see them back along with some others who have not been there for a long time.” 

Wanting to make it more than just a race, a special public address system is being brought in for the show along with a guest DJ.  Other than the National Anthem at the start of the night, the only tunes played will be from The Beatles with a heavy emphasis on their early releases.  During intermission, there will be a special dance contest held for kids 12-years-old and under on the walkway on the main grandstands and the winner is going to take home a very special prize (to be announced in the upcoming weeks).  There will also be a big t-shirt giveaway. 

Grosswendt is also bringing in longtime Perris Auto Speedway announcer Scott Daloisio to call the action for the show along with Ventura promoter Jim Naylor. 

Adult tickets for the race are $25.00.  For seniors 60 & older, active military with id and students with id it is $15.00.  Kids age 7-12 are $10.00 and children 6 and under are free

 from Scott Daloisio

(Perris, CA, March 31, 2015)  In just a little over two weeks’ time on Saturday, April 18th, the legendary World of Outlaw Sprint Car Series will be making its one and only 2015 appearance in Southern California at Perris Auto Speedway.  Fans who go online or call to buy a reserved ticket in advance to see the world’s fastest dirt track sprint cars, will receive a free “Fan Pit Pass.”  Joining the World of Outlaws at the So. Cal. Showdown will be the USAC/CRA Sprint Cars and the PAS Senior Sprints.
 
Advance tickets including the free “Fan Pit Pass” for the World of Outlaws at Perris Auto Speedway can be ordered via phone or online at 1-877-395-8606 or http://dirtcar.ticketforce.com/ordertickets.asp?p=558&backurl=default.asp
 
Currently in the midst of their annual early season west coast swing, the April 18th date at The PAS will be the final one for the Outlaws before heading east for a majority of the summer.  Their next appearance in Southern California will not be until the spring of 2016.
 
“The World of Outlaws are kind of like the circus coming to town,” 20th season Perris Auto Speedway promoter Don Kazarian said on Tuesday morning.  “The come in, put on a show and then head on down the road to the next town.  If you miss them here on the 18th, you will not see them back in the Los Angeles/San Diego area until next year.”
 
Second generation racer Joey Saldana of Brownsburg, Indiana won the 2014 World of Outlaws main event at Perris Auto Speedway.  Please give photo credit to Doug Allen.
 
The “Fan Pit Pass” will allow the fans an unprecedented up close look at the cars and the drivers in the heat of the action.  They can see the cars and drivers up close, get autographs, take photos and buy merchandise straight from the teams.  That is pretty much unheard of today in all forms of sports including racing.
 
“Can you imagine trying to walk into the dugout to congratulate a player after he hit a homerun at a major league stadium,” Kazarian asked?  “You could not.  You would be arrested.  With the “Fan Pit Pass” for the World of Outlaws show, win, lose or draw, you can see the star drivers and famous cars as soon as they come off the racetrack.  It has proved to be very exciting with our fans the past few years.  We are happy we can allow them to enjoy this experience.”
 
All of the top Outlaw stars including 6-time series champ Donny Schatz of Minot, North Dakota, Owasso, Oklahoma’s Daryn Pittman who won the 2013 championship, Brownsburg, Indiana’s Joey Saldana who won the race at The PAS in 2014, Kraig Kinser of Bloomington, Indiana, Grass Valley, California’s Brad Sweet, Shane Stewart of Tulsa, Oklahoma and Australia’s Kerry Madsen will all be in action on the famous Riverside County half-mile clay oval.

Scott Gobrecht Takes Over Central PA Dirt Trackin Show in York from the Fishers
 
from Todd Fisher
Newberrytown, PA (March 22, 2015)  Ownership of the long standing and popular Central PA Dirt Trackin? show held every January in York has changed hands once again.  Todd and Rhonda Fisher, owners of the Susquehanna Speedway Park, have sold the rights and assets of the wintertime racecar show to local businessman, Scott Gobrecht of New Oxford.  

The Central PA Dirt Trackin Show has been a long standing event in the Susquehanna Valley area since its inception in 1984.  The main focus of the show has always been a preview of the upcoming dirt track season at many of the area speedways.  It?s an atmosphere where fans and participants come together during the off-season to relive the seasons past as well as looking forward to the upcoming racing season.

Todd Fisher approached Scott Gobrecht about taking over the management and ownership of the show and they agreed.  The Dirt TrackinShow back is very valuable to all those involved with the Central PA racing scene and we have tried to bring in new things to spark interest in the show.  With running SSP until mid-November, we simply do not have the time to properly do everything needed to make the show the best that it can be, said Todd Fisher.  ?I want to thank all the vendors and racers who displayed their vehicles at the last years show.  We could not have done it without their support. Fisher continued.  

In terms of the Scott Gobrecht, Fisher added I know he will do a fine job to carry on this great show which is in its 33rd year.  He will have all of our support where it is needed.

Im very excited to continue the long standing wintertime tradition of the Central PA Dirt Trackin Show, said Gobrecht.  I am looking forward to expanding and growing the show to the heights that it once had back when it started in the early 1980s.  With everyones help we can get it there as the show will be a fun place to be during the offseason.  I am especially excited to work John Krall who will continue as the Show Director.

The dates of the 33rd Annual Central PA Dirt Trackin Show at the York Expo Center (Memorial Hall) will be announced shortly. The York Expo Center is located at the York Fairgrounds in York, Pennsylvania.   

The website can be found at www.dirttrackinshow.com.  More information about the show and updated forms will be forthcoming and released in the near future.

For anyone wishing to contact the John Krall concerning the show,
they may call 717-891-2659 or email jkrall1@comcast.net.

PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY SIGNS 15-YEAR LEASE EXTENSION!
 from Scott Daloisio
(Perris, CA, March 17)  Since 1996 the face of racing on the west coast has changed dramatically.  Many tracks have closed and are now housing tracts or shopping centers.  Others have had a virtual revolving door of promoters coming in and failing.  However, there is one that has remained the same since the day it opened the doors on March 30, 1996.  Perris Auto Speedway, now in its historic 20th anniversary season, has never closed and has had the same promoter since day one.  And, promoter Don Kazarian has ensured that grass roots racing will continue at the track for a long time to come by signing a 15-year extension on his lease with the Lake Perris Fairgrounds.
 
Kazarian made the announcement when he addressed the fans before at the 20th season opener on March 7th.  In the context of his sometimes emotional address, he calmly said that he had signed a 15-year contract extension and quipped, “I have signed a 15-year contract extension for the racetrack.  Racing is going to be here for a longtime to come.  I am not sure I will be here for all of that time, but racing will.”
 
“Racing is a great sport and I want to see it continue at Perris Auto Speedway,” Kazarian said. “We have had good times and we have had some tough times over the years.  We have a group of people who have been working together here for a long time to make the track a success.  This will give us a goal of keeping great racing going for all of the fans for a long time to come.  I am very excited to see what the future brings to Perris Auto Speedway.  Special thank you to all of the drivers, teams, officials, sponsors and especially our wonderful fans.  Without all of them, there is no way this lease extension would have ever been possible.”
 
The veteran promoter also thanked the Lake Perris Fairgrounds for the extension.
 
“Huge thanks to the fair board for seeing our vision of keeping racing alive on the fairgrounds  and working with us,” Kazarian said.  “They are behind us and want to see the track and racing continue to grow in the area.”
 
The announcement caught many by surprise including longtime track announcer and PR person Scott Daloisio.
 
“I had no idea that was coming,” Daloisio said of the historic announcement.  “It completely caught me by surprise.  One day in February we were talking in the office about the upcoming 20th season and I mentioned that Ascot was around for 34 years and we were starting to get close to that territory.  He never let on that he was negotiating or had negotiated a 15-year extension at the time.  It was certainly very exciting to hear and hopefully there will be even more extensions in the future.”
 
There is no racing at the track this weekend.  Action returns with Night of Destruction #1 on March 28.  The PASSCAR Stock Car Series and the IMCA Modifieds will be back on April 11th and the World of Outlaw Sprint Cars will be making their only Southern California appearance of 2015 on April 18th at the So Cal Sprint Car Showdown.  The USAC/CRA Sprint Cars and PAS Senior Sprint Cars will also be competing on the 18th.

TWO-TIME CHAMP DOUGLASS WINS PAS SENIORS - MORRIS WINS YOUNG GUNS!
 from Scott Daloisio
(Perris, CA, March 11)   When Perris Auto Speedway closed the 2014 campaign, Ventura’s Bruce Douglass said he was done after winning his second PAS Senior Sprint Car championship.  However, like everyone figured, when the season opened last Saturday night, the 63-year-old was back on the track and he led nearly every inch of the way in the 20-lap season opening Senior Sprint main event.  He was joined in victory circle by George Morris who led all the way in the PAS Young Gun 15-lapper for drivers age 14-21.
 
Starting on the outside of the second row in the 15-car Senior main event for drivers 45 and older, Douglass, driving the Victor Davis owned Lucas Oil #13, had secured the lead by the end of the opening circuit and left the remainder of the competitors to battle for second.  Unfortunately, the word battle literally jumped into the main event on the breeze slickened track.

Palmdale’s Rick Hendrix, the 2013 champion, was initially second on the start followed by pole sitter Jack DeArmand Jr. of Corona Del Mar.  Corona’s Steve Brown, who started sixth, quickly moved through the field and was third by the end of the second lap.  Brown got over the inside berm on lap five and got into Hendrix forcing him back to third.  In turn two the next lap, they came together again and this time Hendrix flipped and was plowed into by 2011 champion Bill Badger of Santa Clarita.  Both drivers were uninjured, but their cars suffered extensive damage and they were done for the night.

The race restarted with Douglass out front followed by Brown and Simi Valley’s Chris Wakim.  Douglass was having his way in the lead before the next yellow came out after Lake Forest’s “Hubcap” Mike Collins hit the berm in turn three and proceeded to plow heavily into Brown.  Brown’s impressive run ended there with a damaged car.  Collins was going to be penalized to the back, but a flat tire from the incident ended his night.
 
Once the race went green again, Douglass maintained his lofty position at the head of the pack all the way to the checkered, but he had Wakim all over him.  Canyon Country’s Richard McCormick, who like Douglass and Wakim has cut tons of laps on the Ventura Raceway, took third.  Calgary, Alberta Canada’s Royal Adderson was fourth and Danny Parrish from Fairbanks Alaska took fifth.
 
Morris started on the pole in the Young Guns main and led from green to checkered.  Corona’s Courtney Crone, who turned 14-years-old on the day thus making her eligible for the class, pulled close enough to challenge a couple times in the race, but in the end, Morris, in the Morris Farms/Desert Glass/Cory Kruseman Sprint Car Driving School #3k won by seven-lengths.  Another newcomer, Riverside’s Justin Dunn, who races street stocks at the track as well, finished third.

DAMION GARDNER READY FOR ANOTHER PERRIS CHAMPIONSHIP RUN IN 2015! 
from Scott Daloisio

(Perris, CA, March 1, 2015)  When Perris Auto Speedway kicks off its 20th anniversary season this Saturday night, March 7th, with the Sokola Shooutout for the Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Cars, most eyes will be on two-time defending series champion Damion Gardner of Concord, California.  The slender driver dominated the prestigious series and 2014 and he will be ready to rumble when the first green flag of the season flies on Saturday night.  What could be bad news for the remainder of the competition is the fact that Gardner thinks he can be more dominant in 2015 than he was last year.
 
On Friday, the racing star took some time from his always busy schedule to talk about a multitude of topics including his off season, off track work, the Mark Alexander team he drives for, Bonneville, his 2014 success and his expectations for 2015.
 
Q: What have you been doing all winter?  Have you been getting ready to race? 
Gardner: Did the family stuff around the holidays and then the Chili Bowl.  Been doing some side work for All Coast Construction and some other guys I know down in L.A.
 
Q: Sounds like you are down this way quite a lot now rather than being home in Concord?
Gardner: Yeah.  That was not my intent, but it just kind of worked out that way because that is where the work has been.  Plus I hang out at Shavers (Shave Racing Engines) doing some stuff for him.  My big plan to move home (home to Concord two years ago) has not quite worked out.
 
Q: You had one job that was very interesting and got some television coverage on the news here.  Refurbishing some neon light art.  What was that all about?
Gardner: A guy named Michael Haden, a neon artist back in the 80’s, had put up some neon artwork in the International Jewelry Center in downtown Los Angeles.  Mike Grosswendt from All Coast Construction helped Mike Haden put it up originally.  So, he had some interest in it from the beginning.  So Mike Haden, Mike Grosswendt and the building got together and wanted it restored to bring it back to life.  Mike (Grosswendt) had seen what I could do with the Bonneville car (fabricating) and asked if I could to do it and wanted to do it.  I had done some other work for him and thought this would be something different.  I spent three or four months restoring it.
 
Q: So, you spent a lot of time down there.  It was not a two week job.
 
Gardner: No!  It is about 300-feet long and 50 something neon tubes.  It was quite a project.
 
Q: Earlier you mentioned the Chili Bowl.  You came from the back of the pack all the way to finish third this year.  With a few more laps, do you think you could have caught the top two?
Gardner: I don’t know.  I pretty much would have needed a yellow.  The car could be good at the race and be good in the middle, but it is kind of hard to have a car be good for 50-laps and be good at the end.  I think you saw with me and Kevin and everybody, we were good, but in the last five or seven laps we just kind of went flat.  It gets where nobody is really gaining on anybody else.  But with a yellow, who knows.  I am sure we all would have mixed it up and it would have got interesting, but I probably would not have gotten there.  You never know.
 
Q: How much do you like the Chili Bowl? 
Gardner: Every year I hate going there.  It is the wrong time of year.  The holidays are fun, but you do not relax because you are running around here and there with your family.  Just about the time January comes around you can start to relax, but you have to run off to the Chili Bowl.  I usually dread going and people know I am complaining, but once I get there I enjoy it.  It is a lot of fun.  It is a lot of standing around and not racing and that part kind of bothers me.  When you are actually driving the car and racing, I like that a lot.  I have had some decent success there and have been fortunate to have driven some good cars there.
 
Q: Talking about good cars, you drive a good car out here for Mark Alexander.  You guys were named National Sprint Car Hall of Fame Team of the Year last season.  Anything new going on with that car for 2015?
Gardner: Not really.  Just more of the same.  It is a sweet blend of me and them.  They kind of let me mess with the shocks and do some stuff there.  I have some new stuff we are going to do with the shocks that we are going to try out this year.  We tested the other night and things went pretty well.  We have some new Willwood brake stuff.  Nothing major.  I have been fortunate to be with some real good manufacturers who work with me on making things better or just faster.  We are going to just keep doing what we have been doing.
 
Q: Same people making up that crew this year?
Gardner: Yeah, the same people.  We have a great crew.  Between Mark and Steve Alexander (brothers), Mark does most of the work at home during the week and Steve does the work at the track.  We have a great bunch of guys and we have a lot of them, but it is works out good.  The work always gets done.  I really have to thank Mark and Steve along with Ken from Scott Sales.  They have a car for me that is always ready to win.
 
Q: Tony Jones raved about those guys when he drove for them and actually won their first USAC/CRA championship in 2007.  What makes them so special?

Gardner: It is kind of crazy, because with that many guys, things tend to not get done.  There are too many guys and things can get overlooked.  Anytime you have guys shifting and one guy doing the work during the week and another doing the work on the weekends, you would think things would get lost in translation.  But, they somehow put it all together.  Like I said, Mark does all the work during the week and he does a great job.  He loves that car.  Then Steve comes in and does it on the weekends.  Somehow they hand it off to each other really well.  Then you have Rick, he is always around and there are a lot of fill in guys and they are all real good and have all been around each other for a long time.  I think that is what makes it work.  And, they really love the racing.  They have a passion for it.
 
Q: How long did it take for you to click with those guys?
Gardner: Actually right away.  They wanted to know what I wanted and what I wanted to do.  I told them let’s not do anything.  Just do what you guys normally do and if we have to change anything we will change it.  They were all about it and that is another thing that makes them really good.  Whatever they need to do to win, they are willing to do it.  They are all about winning.  Pride never gets in the way of anything.  So I think we clicked right away.  There were just some small things.  Change this thing and go a little bit faster.  Change that and go a little bit faster.  Me and Steve bounce stuff off each other.  Steve is kind of like a Bromme (Bruce Bromme Jr.) or kind of like when I was with Vinny (Vince Latner).  He kind of keeps me grounded.  I will kind of come up with some good ideas or kind of step out of the box and he kind of knows how to reel me back in some times.
 
Q: You had a great year in 2014.  Were you totally satisfied with it? 
Gardner: Yeah.  It was kind of whirlwindish with the work I did for Bonneville and just racing.  There was a lot of work, but it was great.  I just wanted to do have a way better year than I did the year before.  I just wanted to separate myself from the rest of the people and just clearly be faster.  I hope we did that.  I think we did.  It was just a fun ride.  Winning so many times and winning a few in a row.  It is just fun to work on the car with the guys and seeing the progress and see it all help. 
 
Q: You had more fast times, more heat races win, more main event wins than anyone else and you won the championship for the second year in a row.  Can you do better this year?

Gardner:
Oh, I think so.  Obviously you have to have luck on your side.  When luck is not going your way you have to weather the storm.  Sometimes and someday it is just going to snowball and it will try to beat you down.  But, you just have to weather the storm, keep on doing what you are doing and work through it.  You will come out on the other side and get on a roll.  It is definitely possible that we will have a better year and that is what we are aiming for.
 
Q: At this point in your career, what is more important, winning races or winning a championship?
Gardner: I don’t know.  Championships are something people always asked me about.  I feel different about them than I did when I was younger.  We care about them whether we say do or don’t.  At the end of the day you just want to be the faster guy out there.  At the end of the day when people leave you want them to be talking that you are the guy who won or ought to have one.  You want to be the guy they are talking about.  I believe if you do that, you will win championships and a lot of races.  I have learned to win championships compared to when I was younger.  I did not quite understand how to do it.  Guys used to tell me that I had to know when I had to finish third.  I had no idea what they were talking about.  I did not have any clue.  I have a little more of a clue now.
 
Q: The one race of yours I remember most from 2014 you did not win.  It was if I remember correctly in May at Perris Auto Speedway.  Early in the race you got into a tangle with two other cars going into turn three.  You did not flip, but you were in the wall and another car flipped and landed on top of you.  You jumped out and had a look and as soon as your guys got it back to the work area they went to work on it and did the best they could, but the car was bent bad.  You amazed a lot of people that night when you restarted at the back and drove all the way through the pack to finish second in a trashed car.  Most guys would have parked it.    What makes you different?
Gardner: As far as the car being bent and broke and me coming back out, I have always had a never give up attitude.  When I had my own team with the #20 car (when he first came to run without a wing), we did not quit no matter whether we were a lap down or whatever it was.  We just did not quit working.  I drive the same way and expect my crew to work the same way.  I ask the same thing out of my guys that I ask of myself.  It is just easy when you do that.  At the end of the day when we are all done and sitting at the table, I don’t ever want to look back and say, ‘what if we had done this?’  I want to know we got every best finish we could, got every point we could and did all we could do.  At the end of the day if you can say that, that is all there is.  You never quit whether you are trying to come from the back or you are racing for the lead.   When you start at the back, you just cannot slow down to race everybody else.  You just have to race through them (to get to the front).
 
Q: You had a wild flip at the Oval Nationals.  A lot of altitude and your car ended up stuck on top of the billboards and had to be cut down.  Any injuries that nobody knew about?

Gardner: No, no injuries.  There was a lot of flipping and probably the fence (billboards) took all the shock.  If I had landed on the ground or flipped out of the park and landed on the dirt behind, it would have hurt a lot more.  The fence took most of it.
 
Q: You are the “World’s Fastest Sprint Car Driver” at over 211 MPH.  You told me last year you would not be back at Bonneville this year.  Have you changed your mind?

Gardner: No, we are not going back.  Maybe someday if I get some sponsors who want me to go back.  I am pretty happy with going 211 and being the first guy over 200.  The whole experience was just phenomenal.  I cannot thank all of the guys who made it happen enough.  The whole experience was tremendous, but I am okay with it now.  We could probably squeeze a few more miles per hour out of the car.  We would probably have to go and redesign some things.  I am okay with leaving it where it is for now.
 
Q: What are the racing plans this year?  Just the USAC/CRA Series or do you have anything else lined up? 
Gardner: Same.  Do the USAC/CRA thing.  I may go do some midget stuff with Bob East and Terry Klatt.  We flirt every year with going back east for Sprint Week, but that will be up to the Alexander’s to see what they want to do.  Just kind of weighing it and just going along.  I don’t mind doing that other stuff, but if we just decide to do the USAC/CRA thing I am fine with that and we will just keep the hammer down there. 
 
Q: You just mentioned possibly going back east.  You stayed back there and raced several seasons.  Do you miss racing back there?
Gardner: No, not really.  Our schedule is twenty some races out here and needs to get up a little more.  You need to be pushing 30 or so races.  I think the economy is coming back and cars are back.  Guys went and played around with the 360 deal they saw it is same deal.  Not real profitable.  Those guys are coming back.  We just do not have anyone really guiding the 410 deal (out here) and giving it direction.  I think you could get some more races if you had a little more focus on it.  You could get some more cars and some more fans coming out.  Hopefully we can get the fans to come out and they will enjoy the show.
 
Spectator gates will open at 5:00 PM on March 7th and racing will begin at 7:00.  The PAS Senior and Young Gun Sprint Cars will join the USAC/CRA stars on the triple header card.

PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY BEGINS COLLECTION FOR AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY RELAY FOR LIFE!
 from Scott Daloisio
(Perris, CA, February 27, 2015)  When Perris Auto Speedway kicks off its historic 20th anniversary season on Saturday, March 7th, with the Sokola Shootout for the Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Cars, it will also begin its annual effort to raise money for the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.  2015 will mark the ninth consecutive year that the track has supported the Relay for Life and to date more than $100,000.00 has been collected at the track through the generous donations of fans, racers, sponsors and officials.
 
“Our goal last season was to get our all-time total to $100,000.00 and we did that, so now we start the climb to $200,000.00,” stated longtime Perris Auto Speedway promoter Don Kazarian.  “It is all about our great fans, sponsors, race teams and officials.  They have embraced this cause every year and have donated from pocket change to hundred dollar bills.  Our goal is always $10,000.00 or more.  It all helps fight this dreaded disease.  Our wonderful drivers go up into the stands and collect money in their helmets at intermission.  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 the March 7th season opener, collections for the Relay for Life will also take place at the Night of Destruction on March 28th, The So Cal Showdown on April 18 featuring the World of Outlaws & USAC/CRA, May 23rd Salute to Indy and July 4th.   The May and July dates are headlined by USAC/CRA.   
 
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 three decades, Relay For Life has provided inspiration and hope for millions of cancer survivors.

SPECIAL MONEY SAVING DEALS FOR FANS ON OPENING NIGHT AT PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY!


 from Scott Daloisio
(Perris, CA, February 24, 2015)  When Perris Auto Speedway opens its historic 20th anniversary season with the Sokola Shootout on March 7th for the Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series, PAS Senior Sprints and Young Gun Sprint Cars, there will be some special money saving deals awaiting fans. 
 
“We want to give back to our fans for their loyal support over the years,” said Perris Auto Speedway promoter Don Kazarian who was named National Sprint Car Hall of Fame Promoter of the Year in 2014.  “So, in honor of our 20th anniversary season, on opening night we are going to knock 20% off the price of an adult ticket (normally $25.00) and charge $20.00.  Also, when fans visit the concession stand the first hour after the spectator gates open (5:00 to 6:00 PM), they can buy a beverage or food item for full price and get another of that same item for just twenty-cents.”

The popular Southern California track opened on the Lake Perris Fairgrounds on March 30, 1996.  J.J. Yeley, who raced in the Daytona 500 this past Sunday, won the first ever race at the track.  It was a sprint car race sanctioned by the now defunct Sprint Car Racing Association. 
 
The track is still promoted by the same family (the Kazarian’s) who opened the state of the art facility which was built in in a little over a month’s time.  In this day and age, it is rare for a racetrack to be built and it is rarer for any promoter to promote a racing venue for a long period of time.  Many tracks have closed since Perris Auto Speedway opened and others have had a seemingly revolving door of promoters, while The PAS has been guided by the same people from day one.  In fact, it is believed that currently the only promoters in the state of California who have promoted a short track racing venue longer than the Kazarian’s are Jim Naylor at the Ventura Raceway and the Oxley family who promote speedway motorcycle racing on the Orange County Fairgrounds in Costa Mesa.

“It sure does not seem like 20 seasons,” Kazarian said with a smile.  “It takes a lot of hard work we have been fortunate to have a staff that has been together for a lot of years and they put in a lot of work.  We have them and we have a great group of drivers and teams that come out and pour their hearts into their racing.  Most of all, we have a wonderful group of fans.  I say fans, but they are more than that.  They are part of the racing family.  Without them, we would not be here.  They love the racing and they pull for their heroes like fans of other sports.  This is their NFL, NBA or Major League baseball.”
 
The March 7th opener will the first of 11 dates for sprint cars at the track in 2015.  There will be 8 stock car shows, 5 Nights of Destruction and one midget race on the schedule as well.  Some of the key dates include the April 18th So. Cal Sprint Car Spectacular headlined by the World of Outlaws and USAC/CRA Series’, July 4th which will feature the USAC/CRA Series & the biggest and best fireworks sky concert in Riverside County, the 20th Annual Budweiser Oval Nationals Presented by All Coast Construction on November 12th, 13th & 14th and the historic 75th running of the Turkey Night Grand Prix featuring the USAC Midgets on Thanksgiving.
 
Spectator gates will open at 5:00 PM on March 7th and racing will begin at 7:00. 
 
Advance tickets for all events at The PAS, with the exception of the World of Outlaws, are available 24 hours a day by calling 1-800-595-4849 or online at http://pas.tix.com/Schedule.aspx?OrgNum=7.  Advance tickets for the World of Outlaws can also be obtained via phone or online at 1-877-395-8606 or http://dirtcar.ticketforce.com/ordertickets.asp?p=558&backurl=default.asp

PURPLE HEART RECIPIENT READY FOR PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY SPRINT CAR SEASON!
 from Scott Daloisio
(Perris, CA, February 9, 2015)   When it comes to racing, sprint cars have always been one of the most dangerous disciplines in the sport.  More specifically, 410 wingless sprint cars.  However, for Corona, California’s Stephen Limon, who will be contesting his rookie 410 season in the Amsoil USAC/CRA Series at Perris Auto Speedway in 2015, sprint car racing is a walk in the park.  When he was in the United States Army, Limon served two tours in Iraq and in one of those tours, was wounded in action. 
 
Limon, who will turn 29-years-old in May, enlisted in the United States Army in 2005 and served 4 ½ years of active duty.
 
“I had two deployments under my belt,” the ambitious racer said last Tuesday while waiting to attend an electrician’s class.  “The first one was 15-months and the second one was 12-months.  My first tour I was actually blown up a couple of times and one actually penetrated the armor.  I was wounded and was out of action for a couple months and received the Purple Heart.  I was able to rehabilitate and stay in the army and do another tour of duty.”
 
In 2010, not long after he completed his service and received his honorable discharged from the army, Limon attended the Christian Stover Memorial lightning sprint car race with his wife Melissa.  He liked what he was watching and decided he wanted to do that.  That should not have been a surprise and it was only natural that sitting in the stands would progress to jumping into a racecar.  After all, dirt track racing runs through the veins of his family as his grandfather, two uncles and a cousin all raced before him.   
 
“When I got out of the army, I got into racing as it was something I wanted to do all my life,” the dark haired driver said.  “Along the way I also started a family and am now a union electrician.” 
 
After purchasing a car to compete in the California Lightning Car Series, Limon ran two races near the end of 2010.  For 2011, he was geared up for a full season and it turned into a memorable one as he impressed one and all by finishing sixth in the championship point standings and receiving the Rookie of the Year Award. 
 
“We had a lot to learn that rookie season,” Limon said.  “We had 10 top 10 finishes.  By 2012, we knew enough of what we should and should not do to the car maintenance wise and started to really get a hold on things.  My son Jaxon was born on June 9th and at the next race I won my first main event at Perris Auto Speedway.” 
 
Limon only finished second to longtime veteran Bobby Michnowicz in the championship standings in 2012.  The following year, he went one spot higher and won the 2013 CLS title in only his third full season on the track.  Title in hand, his thoughts were to jump up to a full size sprint car.
 
“I had been contemplating jumping up to a full size sprint car, but it was kind of hard when I still had the lightning sprint,” stated Limon with a chuckle.  “So I put the car up for sale.  We were going to keep on racing in what we knew and did well in, but if the car sold, we would move up.” 
 
Limon got off to a good start in 2014 and won the April 5th main event at the Ventura Raceway.  He was leading the point standings heading into the last race in May when someone in the Midwest called him and bought the car.  That put an end to his Lightning Sprint career and plans were to go and buy a full size sprint car and continue his racing.
 
However, the absolute unthinkable happened a few days after he sold the car.  The couple’s five-month old daughter London passed away in her sleep.  Needless to say, racing was not on the table at that time.
 
“It was a big loss for me and my family and put a hold on things,” orated Limon.  “I took time away and just focused on family.  When I felt more comfortable, I got back into it.  That is why it took so long to buy a full size sprint car.  Now we have a child on the way, too.  He is expected to be born April 19th.  It is another boy so we will have another wild child in our hands pretty soon.”
 
When he did feel comfortable, Limon purchased a Viper chassis powered Mopar from retired USAC/CRA star and fellow California Lightning Sprint Car champion David Cardey to race in 2015.  There is a big difference between a lightning sprint car and a 410 sprint car.  Most notably in horsepower and weight, but there are tons of other significant differences to learn as well.  That is why Limon has been getting some practice in before the outset of the season.
 
“We were going to try and make the Oval Nationals last year, but I did not want to rush things and start in an event like that,” he said.  “I wanted to know the ins and outs of the car.  We decided to wait on the Oval Nationals and get some practice time in for this year.  We have been out twice to practice and I hope to get out two more times before the first race in March.  The first one was really just learning everything.  The second one I really stepped up and got the hang of it.  David (Cardey) and his father Jim have been a great help to me as far as preparation, set up and driving the car.  We are learning a lot about the maintenance as there really is a lot more of it than there was with the lightning sprint car.”
 
For now due to a limited budget, Limon plans on only contesting the races at Perris Auto Speedway.  Thus far, the new team does not have any sponsors, but hopes are high that some will come on board and help in this rookie campaign.   Anyone who is interested in helping can contact the track through the information at the top of this release and will be put in touch with the talented driver.
 
Fans can see Limon and get a preview of the 20th anniversary season when the track hosts the annual pre-season practice on Saturday, February 21st.  The practice, which will begin at 4:00 PM, will be free for fans in the grandstands and there will be $2.00 pizza, soda and beer.  Two weeks later on March 7th, the Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Cars, Senior Sprints and Young Gun Sprints will open their 2015 season.  The PASSCAR Stock Car Series will take the 2015 green flag on March 14th and the first of five Nights of Destruction will be on March 28th.

PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY CONGRATULATES MIKE ARTHUR ON HALL OF FAME INDUCTION!

 from Scott Daloisio
(Perris, CA, January 30, 2015)   Perris Auto Speedway promoter Don Kazarian wants to congratulate legendary racing photographer Mike Arthur on his upcoming induction into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame in Knoxville, Iowa.  Arthur will be enshrined at the 28th annual ceremony on May 30th. 
 
A resident of El Cajon, California, Arthur has been capturing racing action not only in Southern California, but also around the country for more than 40-years.  Known from one end of the nation to the other for his dramatic sprint car and midget photos, Arthur has also proved throughout the years that he is adept at shooting other types of motorsports including NASCAR and Indy Cars.  Over the past few years, he has published four books of his magical photography.
 
“I would like to congratulate Mike Arthur on being inducted into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame,” longtime promoter Kazarian said.  “Not only is it well deserved, but it is overdue.  He has always been the guy to go to for the shots and he always did them right.  His dedication to detail simply makes him the best in the business.  I am glad he is one of our regular photographers at Perris Auto Speedway.  I certainly hope he enjoys his induction day when he joins other greats in the sport.”
 
Longtime Perris Auto Speedway announcer and PR contact Scott Daloisio has been friends with Arthur for years and feels without Arthur’s help, he probably would not being doing what he is today.
 
“I grew up going to races in the Midwest and always wanted to work in the sport,” Daloisio said.  “After moving to California I got the chance as a photographer and one of the first people I met was Mike Arthur.  That was 37 or 38-years ago.  I learned so much from Mike.  I would actually stand near him at the races to try to get shots like him.  Other people did that as well, but nobody could get the same quality shots he did.  In between the offseason in 1979 and 1980 season, Mike was getting new equipment and he sold me his previous camera.  It was a medium format camera and with having that and standing near him, I knew my shots would be as good as his, but they were not.  He was just head and shoulders above everyone else.”

 
“Had Mike not sold me that medium format camera and taught me how to use it, I am not sure how long I would have hung around working in the sport,” said Daloisio.  “Thanks to him, I used it for years in both open wheel racing and also in speedway motorcycle racing.  Eventually I hung up the camera when opportunities came up for me with the microphone.  I could never thank Mike enough for what he has done for me.”
 
Kazarian wanted to add that Arthur became known as a photographer, but he can be counted on for a lot more.
 
“When you think of Mike Arthur, you think photography,” stated Kazarian.  “However, he is so talented in graphic design that he is our go to guy at the track.  He designs our posters, banners, program covers, logos, award photos and more.  The guy is simply amazing.  He can do it all.”

Newberrytown, PA (January 20, 2015) The doors of the 2-day Central PA Dirt Trackin Show presented by the Jack Giambalvo Family of Dealerships will swing open on Friday, January 23, 2015 to many race fans, drivers and supporters of local short track racing in the Central Pennsylvania area in York Memorial Hall Expo Center at the York Fairgrounds in York, Pennsylvania.   

The 32nd Annual Central PA Dirt Trackin Show at the York Expo Center (Memorial Hall) will begin on Friday, January 23, 2015 (4:00 p.m.  10:00 p.m.).  Saturday show hours are 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.  The set-up day will be Thursday, January 22.   

The Central PA Dirt Trackin Show has seen some change in recent years, however one thing that has remained the same since the inception of the show is the title sponsor, Jack Giambalvo Family of Dealerships.  The Jack Giambalvo Family of Dealerships has been locally owned and operated by the Giambalvo family for more than 35 years.  Nicole Berkebile will be at the show with cars featured throughout the show.  The Jack Giambalvo Family of Dealerships includes Buick, Chrysler, GMC, Dodge, Hyundai, Jeep, RAM and Mazda.

Jarett Andretti, the 2014 USAC National Sprint Car Rookie of the Year, will also make an appearance at the Central PA Dirt Trackin Showon Saturday in the Schaeffer Oil booth throughout Saturday to meet fans and sign autographs.  Jarett is part of the world famous Andretti clan; son of John, cousin of Marco, nephew of Michael, grandson of Aldo and great nephew of Mario.  Im excited to return to Central PA to meet its great fans.  They are some of the best short track fans in the country, said Andretti.  He has already secured a ride for the upcoming USAC Eastern Storm Tour that visits the area in early June.  

John Krall, a newly appointed show director, has put together an entertaining program on Saturday night featuring racing families from Central Pennsylvania.  In an anticipated annual program to the Central PA Dirt Trackin Show, three families will be recognized on the main stage featuring a question and answer period following the presentation.  At 6:00 p.m., the Leiby family will be on the stage including Lincoln Speedway co-promoter Bob Leiby and his grandson Chandler.  At 7:00 p.m. the highly recognized Mackison Family will take the stage.  A large contingent of the nationally known Eckert Family including former World of Outlaw Late Model Champion, Rick Eckert will take the stage at 8:00 p.m.  We are excited about the new installment to the show with the Racing Families portion, said John Krall.  This year will be a lot of fun and we look forward to recognizing more families in the years to come.?  

Many speedways will be on hand to promote their events to race fans for the 2015 season.  Many racers will also be displaying their rides for the upcoming season, showing off their sponsors and new paint schemes.  The cars displayed will include a wide variety of Sprint Cars, Late Models, Stock Cars, Legends Cars, Classic Cars, All American Outlaws, Quarter Midgets, Go Karts and more.   All car judging will be held before the doors open at 4:00 p.m. on Friday, January 23.  Awards will include Best of Show; Best Open Wheel; Best Stock Car; Best Late Model; Best Quarter Midget; Best Go Kart and more.  Vehicle display forms are available online and all cars must be pre-registered in order to receive the complimentary weekend passes.

Dirt Trackin Show News & Notes

- Date Change of Motorsports Show in Oaks, PA Although the Motorsports Show producers moved their show to the same date as the Central PA Dirt Trackin Show, both shows should be fine.  Producers of both show discussed it over the summer when the conflict was discovered.  The Fishers tried to find an alternative but the next available date at the York Fairgrounds was not until mid-April which made it not feasible.  In the past, the two shows have been on the same weekends during a few times and both have continued to survive.  We do not expect any issues this year as well.  

- Vintage Toy Display All Weekend - Barry Skelly, of Barry Skelly?s Collector Toys will have many racing related toys from his vast collection on display all three days of the event as well.  This display will rekindle the memories of those who played with these toys that sparked their lifelong interest of auto racing.  

Video Theater Special Presentations on the Big Screen (West Bldg.)

Friday (7:30 p.m.): 2014 Williams Grove Speedway National Open (by Sports Plus Video)

Saturday (3:00 p.m.): Silver Spring Speedway ? A Little Track That Roared (by Lynn Schaffer

Saturday (7:00 p.m.): Stock Car Glory (by Lynn Schaeffer Productions) ? The wildest stock car 

crashes from across the circuit during the last four years.  This JUST RELEASED 7th edition of heavy metal mayheim is 90 minutes long.

The award comes at a very special time for Kazarian and the track.  2015 will mark the 20th season of racing at the popular Riverside County racing facility.  In a feat seldom seen in racing today, all 20 of those seasons have been promoted by Kazarian and his family.

PERRIS AUTO SPDWY GOES BACK TO TRADITION FOR
THE 20TH BUDWEISER OVALS NATIONALS!

from Scott Daloisio
 (Perris, CA, January 6, 2015)    With the holidays over, the staff at Perris Auto Speedway is back in the office and working hard on the historic 20th season at the famous Riverside County racing facility.  Among the things getting attention is the most prestigious traditional sprint car race in the nation, the annual Budweiser Oval Nationals Presented by All Coast Construction.  When the race takes place for the 20th time on November 12th, 13th and 14th, it will return to a format that endeared it to race fans around the country in years gone by.

 The Oval Nationals began life in October of 1996 as a two-day event.  It immediately garnered wide spread attention and appreciation of race teams and fans around the nation.  They marveled at the gorgeous new track and appreciated that the race featured a large purse, stiff competition and was staged at a time of year when most tracks around the country had already closed for the winter. 

 Perris line up

 The race remained a two day affair through the year 2000.  In 2001 promoter Don Kazarian added an extra night and split the field in two.  Half the cars raced on Thursday, the other half on Friday and then they all raced together on Saturday.  One season later he made one of the major decisions which made the race so popular over the years.  He kept the event at three days and instituted the policy of all drivers having to race all three nights.

 All cars racing all three nights brought out the best drivers.  It was a tough format where they had to perform at their hardest from their first lap in qualifying on Thursday until the final checkered flag on Saturday.  It left little room for error from the drivers and their equipment.  It was demanding on the competitors not only racing the cars, but also the crew’s thrashing on them in the pits.  It created excitement and drama that the fans looked forward to every year.

 The race stayed a three night affair through 2011.  In 2012, it went back to the original two-night format.  In 2013 and 2014, it was back to three nights again, but only the last two of those nights featured the 410 sprint cars.  It was still the Oval Nationals, but it was not the same show and the fans let Kazarian know that they wanted the three nights of 410 sprint cars back.  Much to their delight, in 2015 the show is going back to what made it great in years gone by.  Three straight nights of 410 sprint cars with every driver competing all three nights!

 “The fans have been asking for three straight nights of 410 sprint cars like we used to have at the Oval Nationals and that is what we are going to give them,” Kazarian said.  “The race did lose a little bit of its luster for a few years, but things began to swing around again when we started getting purse back up thanks to Mike Grosswendt at All Coast Construction.  There was a buzz around the race again the past two seasons and there will be even more this year as fans will be able to see their favorites from the USAC National and USAC/CRA Series’ go at it three straight nights like the old days.”

 The 2015 edition of the prestigious race will also see it go back to another past tradition of the Oval Nationals.  The race started out with just 410 sprint cars and stayed that way for quite some time.  However, the past few years have seen a couple of support classes sharing the program with the 410’s.  That is not going to be the case this year. 

 “Fans also asked for 410’s only and no support classes at the Ovals, so that is what we are going to do” Kazarian commented.  “It seemed like the support classes cut out some of the drama and took some of the focus away from the 410’s.  Make no mistake about it, the 410’s made the Oval Nationals and we want everyone to be able to focus on them completely so we are not running any support classes with them at this year’s Ovals.” 

 The addition of the third night of 410 racing brings on another big chunk of change for the drivers to compete for.  It will be the largest purse in the 20-year history of the race.  That should not only draw the attention of the local drivers in the USAC/CRA Series and the Indiana based USAC National Series, but it should draw interest from drivers from other parts of the nation as well.

 “Last year Robert Ballou won both nights of the 410 portion of the Oval Nationals and pocketed $30,000.00 for doing so,” Kazarian said.  “If a driver sweeps all three nights this year, he will take home at least $35,000.00 in main event winnings alone.  In addition to going back to all 410’s and the biggest purse in Oval Nationals history, we will have some other exciting announcements in the ten months leading up to the race.  This year’s Oval Nationals is going to be great for the drivers and the fans.  Just like old times.”

Advance tickets for the 20th Annual Budweiser Oval Nationals will go on sale within the next few weeks.

2015 SSP Schedule Released - Season Opener on Saturday, April 4 with an
Open Wheel Doubleheader on Sunday, April 12    Part One

from Todd Fisher
Schedule Provides Most Variety in Speedway?s 60+ Year History

 Newberrytown, PA (January 7, 2015)  Entering the 12th year of ownership under Todd and Rhonda Fisher, the 2015 season opener at the Susquehanna Speedway Park will be on Saturday, April 4, with the Late Models, Street Stocks, Super Sportsman and Legends Cars.  The pit gates will open at 3:30 p.m. for the season opener.  Grandstand gates will open at 4:00 p.m.  Warm-ups begin at 5:30 p.m. with qualifying races at 6:00 p.m. followed by consolation races and feature events.

 Now in its seventh decade of operation, the 4/10 mile Newberrytown oval, sees its most diverse schedule ever since its opening in May, 1954.  Many popular events return along with a few exciting additions.  

 SSP will begin its pre-season with four open practice sessions for any type of racecar on Saturday, March 21; Wednesday, March 25; Saturday, March 28 and Wednesday, April 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.  During the season, SSP will also host sixteen more Wednesday Night Test & Tune Sessions through Wednesday, October 28.  All Wednesday night practices will run from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. as well.  The cost for the Test & Tunes is $14.00 per person for pit passes and a $20.00 fee for each racecar entering the pit area ($34.00 per car & driver combination).  Gates will open at 5:00 p.m. with open track time from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. by class.  Each session will be 6 ? 8 laps per session.  The grandstands are open and free to the public.  Each class will receive at least 4 to 5 rounds of 6/8 laps each or more if time permits.  The main concession stand will also be open throughout the night.   Fuel pumps will only be open for the first two Saturday Test & Tunes of the season,

 Last season, Dover?s J.R. Rodriguez claimed his first SSP track championship over Randy Christine Jr.  Rodriguez had four feature victories and 15 Top 10 finishes in 2014 as Christine claimed five wins and 14 Top 10 finishes.  Track championships are based on classes with a minimum of three races per season.  The SSP track championship point season schedule features 16 point races for the Late Models and 16 point races for the Street Stocks as well as 15 point races for the Xtreme Stock Cars not including their respective season ending special events.  The popular entry level Road Warrior and Mini Van divisions will compete 15 point earning features each.  Also competing for track point championships will be the PA Sprint Series (12 events), Figure 8 Racing (4 events), Super Sportsman (3 events), Legends Cars (3 events), Classic Cars (4 events), Sportsman Modifieds (3 events), PENNMAR Vintage Cars (3 events), Blast From the Past Vintage Cars (3 events) and the All American Outlaws (3 events).   

 The final leg of the USAC Eastern Storm championship featuring the National USAC Non-Wing Sprint Cars will be on Sunday, June 7. 

 Once a month, the 410 Sprint Cars will be featured from April through October on selected Sunday nights.  On Sunday night, April 12, the Super Sprint Cars will return to SSP for the 6th Annual Sprint Car Spring Classic.   They 410 cubic inch powered cars will be joined by the 358 Sprint Cars that currently compete at Williams Grove, Lincoln and Trailways Speedway.  The pit gates will open 3:30 p.m.  Grandstand gates will open at 4:00 p.m.  Warm-ups begin at 5:30 p.m. with qualifying races at 6:00 p.m. followed by consolation races and feature events.  The 358 Sprint Cars will make four visits to SSP in 2014.  Other dates for the 358 Sprint Cars include Sunday, June 14; Sunday, August 23; and Sunday November 14.  The 6th Annual Final Showdown pays $10,000 to the 410 Sprint Car winner on Saturday, November 14.      

 The 358/360 Sprint Car Challenge races will partner with the 410 Sprints on the four remaining Sunday shows on May 3; July 19; September 20 and October 18.  Track champions will be declared for the 410 Sprint Cars, 358 Sprint Cars and the 358/360 Sprint Cars separately. 

 For the second year, the Jr. Road Warrior class for all drivers ages 14 to 18 years of ages will join the Mini Vans in a feature only event.  This will allow younger drivers to develop their talents without competing against veterans in the division.

 The SSP Outback Track will open with a Test & Tune on Friday night, April 10.  The first event of the

 Spring Shoot-Out Series on the 1/9 mile oval will be Friday, April 17.  The 10 race Spring Series ends on Friday, June 19.  The 10-race Summer Shoot-Out Series runs from Friday, June 26 to Friday, September 24. 

 There are two special nights at the Outback Track during each Shoot-Out Series.  The first is ?Double Features Night? on May 1 and July 17.  Each division of Quarter Midgets, Karts and adult Speedcars will have two features (with only one entry fee).  There will be no heat races.  The first 15-lap feature will be lined up by a blind draw.  The second 15-lap feature starting lineup will be an inversion of all the cars on the lead lap with lapped cars and cars that did not finish starting behind the cars on the lead lap. 

 The second type of special night will be Track Records Night on May 22 and August 7.  At Track Records Night, each competitor will have a chance to break the existing one-lap track record for their class at the Outback Track.  Time trials (3 laps per competitor) will replace heat racing for the night.  Drivers will have the chance to put their name in the record book as the one-lap record holder for their class.  Qualifying times will also be used to determine the feature starting lineup (Inversion of top 4 times).  

 The Susquehanna Speedway Park is located 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.

PERRIS PROMOTER DON KAZARIAN REMEMBERS STEVE HOWARD
from Scott Daloisio
(Perris, CA, December 19, 2014)    For the second time in less than two weeks, the Southern California sprint car community was rocked by the death of one of its longest serving members.  First it was Evelyn Pratt who passed away in Texas and now Steve Howard who passed away at his home in Norwalk in his sleep on Monday.  Unlike many others, when he retired, Howard stayed in constant contact with the sport and will be missed by many far and wide.  On Thursday, Perris Auto Speedway promoter Don Kazarian commented on the loss.

 “Like with Evelyn, it is hard to imagine Steve will no longer be around,” the saddened promoter said.  “He has been around the sport since he was a little kid watching his father race at Ascot.  He raced himself and was a star back in the day.  He was a fearless, hardnosed driver who was on the gas every time he was on the track.  After he retired, he was always in the pits. 
 It is just going to be strange not to have him around.”  Kazarian smiled and chuckled when he remembered Howard’s personality.

 “To say the least, Steve had a crusty exterior,” the promoter smiled.  “However, underneath he was a pretty shy guy with a great sense of humor. The So. Cal. Performance trailer was the social center in the pit area.  Steve would be there selling tires and parts and also holding court with anyone who stopped by.  Whether it was a driver or crew member asking a question about set ups or someone stopping by to tap into Steve’s vast knowledge of the history of sprint car racing in Southern California, he was always available.  Like Evelyn, there is no way to replace him.  I will certainly miss him,”

 Howard’s funeral will be held at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park located at 4471 Lincoln Avenue in Cypress on January 23rd at 11:30 AM.  Details regarding a celebration of his life will be released within the next few days

Kenny Wallace Dirt Racing Experience

 When NASCAR drivers really want to have some fun-and often get back to their racing roots-they get dirty. The adrenaline junkies power up racing machines and race around dirt tracks at speeds of more than 100 mph, sliding around the dirt corners and getting dirtier than a politician in a food fight.

 Kenny Wallace Dirt Racing Experience lets speed-fiends hop in the same type of Dirt Late Model or Sprint Cars the professionals drive and take off around dirt tracks across the country. They can ride in the passenger seat while an experienced driver careens around corners or take over the wheel after a 45-minute class. No racing experience is required, and family and friends are welcome to watch the race experiences.

NEED A CHRISTMAS PRESENT?  KENNY WALLACE DIRT RACING EXPERIENCE COMING TO PERRIS!


   from Scott Daloisio
(Perris, CA, December 15, 2014)  Are you still looking for a Christmas present for that special racing person in your life?  Why not get them a package with the Kenny Wallace Dirt Racing Experience at Perris Auto Speedway.  The longtime NASCAR racer has booked the famous Riverside County clay oval for two dates, April 4th and April 19th, in 2015.     

The following packages are being offered.

 RIDE-ALONG PACKAGE (4 Laps) – $129.00
Whether you’re a fan who wants to experience the thrill of dirt track racing in a two seat Sprint Car, or you’re getting ready to drive and want to start in a two seat Dirt Late Model the Ride-Along is amazing.  You will simply not believe the power of these cars combined with incredible skill of our dirt driving Pro’s.  Rides are 4 laps total with a half lap coming to speed and a half a lap cool down, so 3 laps are at speed.

 DIRT JUMP START PACKAGE – $249.00*
If this is your first time on dirt, it can be a little intimidating and those Dirt Late Models are one serious racecar that can be something to handle with limited or no experience.  That’s why we’ve developed our modified jump start program.  You can start in an IMCA style dirt Modified, the IMCA dirt Modified has a little less power and is more “driveable” than the Late Model.  We have found that drivers who opt for the Modified first do much better when it’s time to drive the Late Model  The Dirt Jump Start Modified program is 7 laps.

Fremont Speedway Promoter teams up with Plymouth Speedway to bring UNOH All Stars

PLYMOUTH, IN. – For the first time in the track’s history, Plymouth Speedway will host the University of Northwestern Ohio All Star Circuit of Champion Sprint cars on Friday, May 22.

The event will be part of a Memorial Day weekend triple-header for the All Stars including back-to-back shows at Fremont Speedway on Saturday, May 23 and Sunday, May 24.

Fremont Speedway Promoter Rich Farmer, voted the 2013 Regional Promoter of the Year by his peers, and Plymouth Speedway Promoter Ed Kennedy teamed up to bring the 410 winged sprint cars to the three-eighths mile banked dirt oval. Plymouth runs modifieds, 600 non-wing open sprints and stocks on a weekly basis. This will be the first time winged 410 sprints will compete at Plymouth since it was converted to dirt.

“It’s a thrill to work with Rich to give area fans the chance to see winged 410 sprint cars at Plymouth. Rich is well respected by race promoters and when he called to discuss this opportunity I knew it was a no-brainer,” said Kennedy.

The Friday event at Plymouth will pay $5,000 to win. The UNOH All Stars then head to Fremont for the traditional two-day show with Saturday’s event paying $3,000 to win and Sunday’s race paying $10,000 to win.

“Ed has been working very hard to make improvements to Plymouth which has a long and storied history, much like Fremont. It’s only a three hour drive from Fremont and it gives not only the All Star teams but our local teams a chance to race three nights with very little travel,” said Farmer.

Farmer said the drivers who compete in the Kistler Racing Products FAST (Fremont Attica Sprint Title) Championship Series will also receive financial incentives to compete at Plymouth. He added he and Kennedy worked with Attica Raceway Park and other area tracks along with the Interstate Racing Association to ensure the event is successful.

“The race teams will also have the opportunity to tour the Hoosier Tire factory to see how their tires are built,” said Farmer.

The 600 non-wing open sprints will also race at Plymouth on May 22 and for an increased purse.

SATURDAY – ELDORA SPEEDWAY MAJOR EVENT TICKETS ON SALE
From Larry Boos
Race Fans Can Go Online, Call or Visit Starting 10 a.m. For Tickets and Campsites
  ROSSBURG, OH (December 2) – For Eldora Speedway race fans, the first Saturday in December is one of the most anticipated dates on their ‘off-season’ calendar.   It is the traditional date for the opening of public ticket and campsite sales for the historic speed plant’s marquee major events for the upcoming season, and the Eldora Speedway staff is prepared for this year’s campaign.

 This Saturday (Dec. 6), starting promptly at 10 a.m., race fans can go online to www.EldoraSpeedway.com or call the speedway office (937) 338-3815 to purchase remaining tickets and campsites for the Dirt Late Model Dream weekend (June 4, 5 & 6), Kings Royal weekend (July 17 & 18), the 1-800 Car Cash Mud Summer Classic for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (July 22) and the World 100 weekend (September 10, 11, 12).

 “Due to the volume of orders, a race fan’s best bet is the online route,” cited Eldora Ticket Manager Tess Thwaits.  “Our proven TicketForce-prepared design is easy and quick and capable of assisting a large quantity of orders simultaneously.  We will also have a full staff answering the phones from 10 a.m. through 3 p.m.  Additionally, our box office will be open during these hours for walk-in orders.”

 The 2014 season on Eldora’s one-half mile clay oval produced some of the most competitive and exciting racing seen in its 61 years of action and has created an unprecedented appeal for race tickets and campsites.

 Dale McDowell’s (Chickamauga, GA) powerful drive from 22nd to the lead in 79 laps during this past June’s Dirt Late Model Dream was just the beginning of what fans would see as the slate of time-honored Eldora events unfolded throughout the summer.  In July Kerry Madsen (St. Marys, NSW) thwarted a powerful late-race charge from six-time World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series champion Donny Schatz to become the first-ever Australian winner in the event’s illustrious 31-year history.

 And then ten days later, Darrell Wallace, Jr. (Mobile, AL) prevailed over NASCAR’s only National Series dirt race in a battle that found Kyle Larson (Elk Grove, CA) stealing the show with his relentless pounding of Eldora’s concrete walls trying to chase down Wallace. The repeated slamming of the walls and a broken brake line ended Larson’s stint two laps from the finish as Wallace bested Ron Hornaday, Jr. (Palmdale, CA).

 An unbelievable run by Scott Bloomquist (Mooresburg, TN) in September’s 44th annual running of the famous World 100 closed out the major event schedule.  Fans were in awe at Bloomquist’s prowess.   During a lap 20 caution period, Bloomquist was motioned to the pit area for an inspection by the sanctioning (DIRTcar UMP) officials.  It was determined that Bloomquist had an unapproved window net and was removed from his lead position to the tail of the pack.  Lap after lap, car after car, Bloomquist moved his way back to the front and re-took the lead on lap 72 as he devoured the balance of the field for his fourth victory in the prestigious event.

 Race fans were abuzz throughout the season and have been flooding the Eldora offices inquiring about the upcoming ticket sale date.   Eldora, through its online ticketing, phone sales and in-person sales is ready for the onslaught this Saturday.

 Tickets and camping for the balance of Eldora’s exciting 2015 season, which can be viewed at the track’s website www.EldoraSpeedway.com, will go on sale Monday, February 9, 2015.

 Race fans can keep up-to-date with the plans going into the 2015 season by following @EldoraSpeedway on Twitter, hitting ‘Like’ at Facebook.com/EldoraSpeedway and view video highlights at YouTube.com/EldoraSpeedwayInc.  Mobile device users can access the Eldora Speedway app for the iPhone, iPad and Android which are available for download via iTunes and Google Play.

 About Eldora Speedway:

Since opening in 1954, Eldora Speedway has proven to be a frontrunner in motorsports growth and stability.  Celebrating its 62nd season in 2015, the rural southwestern Ohio speed plant hosts some of the biggest and most recognizable events in racing.  The historic half-mile dirt oval features the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars, DIRTcar Late Models and Modifieds, UNOH All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars, USAC National Silver Crown, Sprint Cars and Midgets, National Racing Alliance Sprint Invaders, Monster Jam, Eldora Stocks and for the third consecutive year, the only dirt race in NASCAR, the 1-800-CAR-CASH featuring the Camping World Truck Series on Wednesday, July 22, 2015.

Granite City Speedway in Minnesota Hosts World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series in 2015
 from  Tony Veneziano SLS Promotions
SAUK RAPIDS, Minn. — December 2, 2014 — History will be made at Granite City Speedway in Sauk Rapids, Minnesota on Tuesday, June 16, 2015, as the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series visits the track for the first time. The event will also mark the first-ever 410-winged sprint car race at the track in the St. Cloud metro area.
 
Granite City Speedway, a semi-banked three-eighths-mile, formerly was Golden Spike Speedway, which changed names prior to the 2013 season when a new group assumed ownership of the track. Numerous improvements have been made to the facility over the last couple of years, with more in the works, including the installation of new light towers in the spring of 2015.
 
“We have upgraded the facility from the old Golden Spike Speedway and are very excited to take it to the next level with the World of Outlaws,” said Denny Niess, one of the owners of Granite City Speedway. “Our goal is to be a premier facility and to have premier races. The community and all of our advertisers have been very supportive of the track and that is why we are bringing in the best of the best with the World of Outlaws.”
 
Granite City Speedway joins Crawford County Speedway in Iowa, and Dakota State Fair Speedway in South Dakota, as tracks in the upper Midwest hosting inaugural World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series events in 2015.
 
“Fans are going to see a phenomenal race track at Granite City Speedway,” said Niess. “The drivers will have a great surface to race on as well. The World of Outlaws put on an amazing show, and I believe this is going to grow and get even bigger in the future. I look forward to this being an annual event in St. Cloud, Minnesota.”
 
Last season, the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series raced three times in Minnesota, with veterans Paul McMahan and Joey Saldana picking up wins, as well as first-time winner Roger Crockett. The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series has raced at seven different tracks in the state of Minnesota, dating back to 1979, the second year of the series.
 
Minnesota native Craig Dollansky, who is 10th on the World of Outlaws all-time win list with 59 A-Feature triumphs, and who will return to the tour full-time in 2015, is a former winner in his home state with the series. Donny Schatz, who won his sixth series title this past season, also is a past winner in the “Land of 10,000 Lakes” with the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series, as is Daryn Pittman, the 2013 series titlist. David Gravel, one of the young guns on the circuit, won in Minnesota in 2013. Kraig Kinser, son of 20-time series champion Steve Kinser, has also been victorious in Minnesota with the series.
 
Additional information on tickets for the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series inaugural event at Granite City Speedway on June 16, 2015, will be available at a later date at www.slspromotions.com.

74th ANNUAL TURKEY NIGHT GRAND PRIX AT PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY THANKSGIVING NIGHT!
  from Scott Daloisio
(Perris, CA, November 24, 2014) Perris Auto Speedway will conclude its 19th season of racing this Thursday night, November 27th, when Oval Entertainment and Agajanian Promotions present the 74th Annual Running of the 98-lap Turkey Night Grand Prix featuring the USAC Honda National and Western States Midgets.  It will be the third consecutive year midget racing’s longest running and most historical race will stay on a dirt track.  Spectator gates will open at 3:00 PM, qualifying will begin at 6:00 and the first race will take the green flag at 7:05.

 The race will feature the top Midget drivers in the nation and will include the winners of the 2012 and 2013 TNGP’s at The PAS.  Rising NASCAR Sprint Cup star Kyle Larson, who won in 2012, will be making his first start in a midget since the annual Chili Bowl in Tulsa, Oklahoma in January.  Lincoln, Indiana’s Dave Darland, who won the race for the second time in 2013 and who became only the third driver in history to have won it on both the dirt and pavement, will also return in the same Keith Ford Motorsports #73 that he drove to the victory 52 weeks ago.

 Rutherford, California’s Rico Abreau will come into the event with a slender lead in the USAC National Championship point standings.  Norman, Oklahoma’s Christopher Bell, who has won 25-main events in sprint cars, midgets and pavement stock cars this year, heads into the race only 26-points behind Abreau.  If that is not tight enough, Wilkinson’s Indiana’s Tracy Hines is only 10-behind Bell.  That trio will decide who will be the 2014 champion on Thursday night.

 Among the 43 drivers who have stated their intention to contest the race is 2014 USAC/CRA champion Damion Gardner of Concord, California and Norco’s Ronnie Gardner. Damion, who is not related to Ronnie, was leading last year’s TNGP when a left wheel came off late in the race. Ronnie Gardner, the grandson of Indy driver Ronnie Duman on his mother’s side and the famous Gardner racing clan on his father’s side, sewed his second straight Western Midget championship last Saturday in Peoria, Arizona.

 Others slated to compete are Noblesville, Indiana’s Bryan Clauson, Phoenix, Arizona’s Chad Boat, the son of three-time winner Billy Boat, Zach Daum of Pocahontas, Illinois, Tanner Thorson if Minden, Nevada, Trey Marcham of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Darren Hagen of Irvine, 5-time CRA champ Mike Spencer of Temecula, 2012 Western Midget champion Shannon McQueen of Bakersfield and World of Outlaws star Brad Sweet of Grass Valley.  

 If Clauson, who has already secured a ride in the 2015 Indianapolis 500 driving for car owner Jonathon Byrd, can win on Thursday, he will become only the fourth driver in TNGP history to have won the race on both pavement and dirt.  He already has victories at Irwindale in 2009 and 2010.  Mel Kenyon was the first to do the trick with victories at Ascot in 1963 and Speedway 605 in 1975.  The late Stan Fox was the next driver to do it when he won the last ever race at Ascot on Thanksgiving night in 1990 and followed that up with his pavement win at Saugus Speedway in 1991.  Darland became the third driver to accomplish the feat when he won last year at The PAS.  His initial TNGP win came at Irwindale in 2007.

 The fast qualifier on the night will take home the gorgeous Danny Pearson designed Jason Leffler Fast Time Award honoring 1964 & 1966 TNGP winner and 2014 Grand Marshal Parnelli Jones. The top rookie in the race will take home the “Don Basile Rookie of the Race” award and the $500.00 check that goes with it.


 The Jason Leffler Award Honoring Parnelli Jones will go to the fastest qualifier at Thursday’s Turkey Night Grand Prix

 Spectator gates will open at 3:00 PM and there will be an on track autograph session featuring all of the entered drivers including Larson from 3:00 to 4:00 PM.  From 3:30 to 4:15, legends of the Turkey Night Grand Prix will be signing autographs in the track sports bar.  Dave Darland will also be doing a special signing of his new book, The People’s Champ, A Racer’s Life until 4:00 PM.

 Wheel packing and hot laps will begin at 5:00 PM with qualifying at 6:00 followed by racing at 7:05.

 Fans who wish to catch an early glimpse of the competitors can attend the pre-race practice at the track on Wednesday night.  The practice is free for fans in the grandstands and will begin at 5:00 PM.  There will be $2.00 pizza, beer and sodas.

 Tickets to the longest running and most prestigious Midget race in the world will be available at the track ticket office on the day of the race.  Advance tickets are available 24-7 by calling 1-800 595-4849 or by visiting the following link online: http://pas.tix.com/Schedule.aspx?OrgNum=7.  For those wishing to get tickets at the track on race night, there will be plenty available for everyone.

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.

 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.”

  After a record breaking 2014 season, Arizona Speedway wraps up the year November 15th with the 2nd annual Napa Night at the races featuring Super Late Models, Neils Garage Cabinets Pure Stocks, Mod Lites , Robert Horne Ford Bombers and finish up with the guys and girls that make it all happen, in the Mechanics Race.

  Joey Moriarty claimed the payday in last years season finale sponsored by Napa Autoparts and will look to repeat in 2014 as many of the south wests stand out Late Model racers along with the drivers that enjoy the Arizona winters including Don Shaw.   Parker, Williams and many more of the south west stand outs will  compete in the $1500 to win season finale.

  Pure stocks will wrap up their championship season as  Arron Hetrick sits 29 points ahead of Kevin Parker headed into the final main event of 2014.  Zach Griggs who does unofficially look to hold the 2014 Rookie of the year honors will battle with  Mike Kruse for 4th place in the championship as  only 3 points separate the 2 headed into Saturday nights feature.

  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.

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.”

 The 20-lap Sportsman Modified feature began with the polesitter Brett Kressley taking the lead on the start.  Shawn Fitzpatrick took command of the top spot on lap 2.  Kressley regained the lead on the fourth circuit and continued to lead to the end.  Craig Whitmoyer had a chance for the lead with a restart with two laps remaining but settled for second at the end.  Kevinn Beach took a third place podium finish.  Steve Searock and early leader Fitzpatrick took fourth and fifth places respectively.  Fitzpatrick and Kressley won their respective heat races.  

 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.

 Aaron Spahr led from start-to-finish to win the the 20-lap ACMS 600cc Micro Sprint Car feature over Justin Whittall and Gunner Layton in second and third place podium finishes.  Sean Garman finished fourth, followed by Sam Kravitsky in fifth.  Spahr and Whittall won the heat races.  Spahr also won the sole heat race for the division.

 In the second 12-lap Sidewinder Sprints feature, Rohan Beasley led from the green-to-checkers but at the end only edged out Austin Quick by about three feet.  Zach Overmiller claimed third over Jason Stahl in fourth and Brandon Yarlett in fifth place.

 Before the midget feature began, the cars and drivers in all divisions were brought to the frontstretch for the large crowd of children in costumes to trick or treat.  This was also a great opportunity for everyone to visit their favorite drivers to get pictures and autographs.

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.”

Johnson, the defending champ and current point leader in the USAC Southwest Sprint Car Series, and multi-time Arizona area champion Charles Davis Jr. of Buckeye, Arizona, head the list of entries from the Copper State.

 Heading the contingent from Central and Northern California will be 2014 USAC Western Classic Champion Ryan Bernal of Hollister, 2013 USAC West Coast Champion Danny Faria Jr. of Tipton, Landon Hearst of Riverdale and Colby Copeland of Roseville.

 All of the visiting drivers will have to put up with a fierce group of PAS locals who plan on ferociously defending their local turf.  Included in The PAS delegation is Spencer of Temecula, the defending race champ and 5-time USAC/CRA champion.  Matt Mitchell of Orange, who leads the USAC West Coast Series standings, Huntington Beach driver Brody Roa, who is getting married this weekend, twins Richard and Jace Vander Weerd of Visalia and past USAC/CRA rookie of the year Jake Swanson of Anaheim.

 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.

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.

Racing action begins at 7:00pm, Pits open at 3:30pm, front gates open at 5:00pm.  Cost of admission is $15 for adults, $12 for senior and kids 11 and under are free.   Central Arizona Speedway is located at 512 N Eleven Mile Corner Road,  Casa Grande, AZ 85194  at the Pinal county fairgrounds.  Follow us to win tickets at www.Facebook.com/CentralArizonaSpeedway  or call 480-266-1378 for more info.

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.

 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.

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.

 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.

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.

Racing action begins this Saturday night September 13th at 7:00pm.  Cost of admission is $12 adults, $10 seniors, $5 kids 7-11 and kids 6 and under are free. Pits open at 4pm and front gates open at 5:00pm.  Arizona Speedway is located within ET Motopark just 5 minutes from Mesa 4 miles south of US60 on Ironwood Dr.  More info at www.ArizonaSpeedway.net  .Follow us at www.Facebook.com/ArizonaSpeedway to win tickets

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.

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.

 General Admission Grandstand ticket prices for Sunday night are Adults (ages 18-59) $18.00; Young Adults (ages 11-17) & Senior Adults (60 & Older) $15.00; Children (10 & under) are free.  Pit pass prices are $25.00.  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.

 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.

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.

 at Perris Auto Speedway on July 4th.

 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.

 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.”

 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.”
