 KRESSLEY AND HIRTHLER WIN NASCAR FEATURES, BUCKWALTER TOPS IN USAC EAST COAST SPRINT FEATURE AT GRANDVIEW

BECHTELSVILLE, PA. May 19, 2019 . . . Brett “The Threat” Kressley, behind the wheel of the Kressley family owned No. 19K, scored his second 30-lap TP Trailers NASCAR 358 Modified feature victory on Saturday night at Grandview Speedway in a down-to-the wire battle with Skyler Sheriff, the leader since the beginning of the event. The pair had several laps of paint swapping battles, but with one lap to go the Orefield based lead foot muscled the lead away from Sheriff and went on to chalk up the win.

Brian Hirthler, who’s regular No. 4 Star was waiting for repairs, borrowed his Brother Kevin’s backup No. 117X with a crate engine in it and won his first TP Truck Equipment 25-lap Sportsman NASCAR feature of the season. It was the same car Kevin won the opening race in. Brian received an extra $100 from the track for being the highest finishing driver with a crate engine.

Tim Buckwalter, doing double duty driving Modifieds and Sprints piloted the GEI-owned No. 5G to victory in the 25-lap Rapid Tire USAC East Coast Sprint Cars feature. It was just the second time for Buckwalter in the car.

Providing all feature winners met the necessary requirements, the Modified and Sportsman feature winner got monetary awards from TP Trailers and a certificate from VP Fuels for product awards. Sheriff and Mohr won the Dan’s Deli ½-way hoagie award.

More than 100 cars took part in the three division show.

Modified action saw Sheriff motor ahead of rookie Steve Wilson, Ron Seltmann Jr., Ron Kline and Mike Laise at the start of the race to set the pace for the 31-car starting grid that included provisionals taken by Craig Whitmoyer, Jeff Strunk and Craig Von Dohren.

The yellow was out when Bob Trapper Jr. slowed in the fourth turn with ten laps completed. Sheriff was still the leader on the restart, but now Seltmann Jr. was second and when he put in a bid for the lead he was taken high into the first turn marbles. He stayed out of the wall, but fell back several positions.

By the 13th lap restart needed when Buckwalter slowed in turn two, Kressley, 13th-place starter, advanced to second to pressure Sheriff for the top spot.

Behind Sheriff and Kressley waiting for a slip-up were Duane Howard, Ron Kline and Jared Umbenhauer.

The red was thrown on the 23rd lap after Frank Yankowski hit the third turn wall with heavy impact and had flames coming out from underneath his car which was extinguished quickly. Alex Yankowski was along the third turn inside berm with both out of contention. Sheriff held his line when action resumed, but not he had to contend with Howard, who was in the runner-up spot making his presence known.

Sheriff and Howard exchanged paint on occasions and with five to go Kressley was back in second with Howard, Umbenhauer and now Rick Laubach in pursuit.

The battle for the lead continued between Sheriff and Kressley with neither one giving an inch as the race progressed. Both drivers swapped lanes several times, but the outcome remained the same.

Coming around for the one to go signal Kressley made a bold move and managed to take the lead away after using every inch of the track to find a way around.

Kressley didn’t give Sheriff another chance to regain the lead and pulled into the winner’s circle for his 11th career win. Following him across the line for his best finish was Sheriff trailed by Howard, Umbenhauer and Laubach. Sixth through tenth were Frank Cozze, Mike Laise, Von Dohren, Ryan Grim and Doug Manmiller.

Steve Wilson, Sheriff, Buckwalter and Bobby Gunther Walsh won the heats. Consies went to Kyle Weiss and Louden Reimert.

For the third straight week, ten-time point champion Jeff Strunk failed to finish the race.

Derrick Smith led four laps of the Sportsman feature before Brad Brightbill slowed with a flat tire in the first turn for the yellow. On the restart Nathan Mohr jumped into the lead to take control of the race.

It didn’t take Mohr long to build up a sizeable lead over Smith, Mike Mammana, Kyle Lilick and Nate Brinker.

Lap 13 was certainly an unlucky won for Mohr as his car seized up bringing him to a halt in turn two bringing out the caution. Mammana, who inherited the lead, wasted no time staying in front of the pack when action went green again with Smith, Brinker, Hirthler and Lilick in pursuit.

Hirthler overtook second on the 17th lap and set his sights on Mammana and the lead.

The lead changed hands for the fourth and final time on the 22nd lap when Hirthler overtook first.

Hirthler, whose contact in his right eye shifted earlier in the race and he had to rely on his left eye until it moved to a comfortable spot, never looked back once he was in front and proceeded into victory lane for his fourth career win. Mammana, Smith, Lilick and Brinker chased him across. Ryan Beltz, Brad Grim, Jack Butler, Brad Arnold and Brightbill rounded out the top ten.

Heats were won by Mohr, Mammana and Josh Adams. The consi went to Butler.

Joey Biasi led the USAC Sprint feature for four laps before Buckwalter charged to the front of the pack.

Chasing Buckwalter for numerous laps were Biasi, Carmen Perigo, Ryan Quackenbush and Steve Drevicki.

Quackenbush’s strong run ended when he slowed on the homestretch to bring out the seventh lap caution. It was still Buckwalter ahead with Chandler Leiby joining the mix.

Drevicki was on the move as he went from fourth to second in one lap to take chase after Buckwalter.

No one was able to reel Buckwalter in to challenge and he went on to take the checkered followed by Drevicki, Perigo, Biasi and Leiby.

Perigo, Biasi and Buckwalter won the heat winners. Zach Burd picked up the consi win.

Next Saturday, May 25, a doubleheader show of NASCAR T.P.Trailers Modifieds and T.P.Truck Equipment Sportsman closes out the month of May as the battle for the NASCAR titles goes on. Racing starts at 7:30 p.m. Adult admission is $15 with youngsters 11 and under admitted free. Spectator gates open at 5:30 p.m.

                Coming up on June 1st is the first of two visits for the Central PA Legends as part of a tripleheader show that will also feature the NASCAR Modifieds and Sportsman stock cars. There is no increase in the admission price for this tripleheader.

Glen Luce wins Super Late Model race at Oxford Plains Speedway

 

Oxford, ME – Glen Luce of Turner led all 50 laps in Saturday night’s Budweiser Championship Series Super Late Model main event at Oxford Plains Speedway, scoring his first triumph of the 2019 racing season.  Several drivers kept the action close to Luce for most of the night’s biggest race before the 2015 Oxford 250 champion pulled away from the competition during the event’s closing laps.

 

Jeff Taylor of Farmington, who won the previous week’s main event, drove from 12th starting position to a second-place finish in the caution-free, non-stop race.  It was the third straight top-three finish for the nine-time Oxford Plains Speedway track champion.

 

Two-time Super Late Model track champion TJ Brackett of Buckfield earned third-place honors.  Rusty Poland of Windham raced with the leaders throughout the 50-lapper and crossed the finish line in fourth position.  Ryan Deane of Winterport was fifth under the checkered flag, posting his fourth straight top-five finish.

 

Kurt Hewins of Leeds led all 30 laps en route to his first win of the season in the Allen’s Coffee Flavored Brandy Street Stock division.  Hewins, who is closing in on the 50 career win mark at Oxford Plains Speedway, held off a determined Jordan Russell to post the victory.

 

Russell, of Norway, settled for runner-up honors, with reigning champion and current points leader Matt Dufault of Turner third.  Billy Childs, Jr. of Leeds was fourth, followed by Leeds native Kyle Hewins, now calling Oxford home.

 

Matthew Kimball of Bennington, New Hampshire won his first-ever North East Mini Stock Tour race in a special, 50-lap test Saturday night.  Kimball outran NEMST points leader Jimmy Childs of Leeds to the checkered flag.  Childs, who won the NEMST points opener last month at Oxford Plains Speedway, unofficially remains atop the series’ rankings.  Massachusetts racer Jarrod Soucy was third, followed by Granite Staters Jacob Rheaume and Matt Boucher.

 

Chad Wills nailed down his first victory this season in the 20-lap main event for Bandits division competitors.  Wills, a hometown racer, outran reigning champion Dustin Salley of Mechanic Falls to the checkered flag. Tyler Green claimed the third-place trophy, finishing ahead of Auburn’s Josh Dube and ‘The Tornado,’ Travis Verrill of South Paris.

 

Kyle Kilgore of South Paris drove from last starting position to victory lane in the Figure 8 race to claim his second consecutive victory.  Charlie ‘Chachy’ Hall of Oxford led the first half of the race and earned runner-up honors.  Greg Durgin of South Paris held off Dale Lawrence of Minot for the third-place trophy.  Poland’s Larry Lizotte rounded out the top five.

 

Owen Stuart of Naples earned his first victory of the year in the 15-lap Rookie feature race.  Stuart held off a determined challenge by Brady Childs of Leeds to post the victory.  Stuart’s win snapped a three-race winning streak for Childs.  Sophie Green of South Paris was third, followed by Maddy Herrick of Norway.

 

The Budweiser Championship Series Super Late Models, Allen’s Coffee Flavored Brandy Street Stocks, Bandits, Figure 8s and Rookies are in action next on Saturday night, May 25.  Post time is 7:00 p.m.  A special Memorial Day program, Motor Mayhem 1, is scheduled for Monday afternoon, May 27 at 2:00 p.m., with all of the Oxford Acceleration Series divisions getting their 2019 racing season underway.  Spectator Drags, endure racing and other events are planned.  Oxford Plains Speedway is located at 877 Main Street (State Route 26) in Oxford, Maine.  For more information please visit oxfordplains.com or call (207) 539-8865.

“Andy Jankowiak, Nick Robinson Claim Lidlifters at  Chemung ” by Carol Houssock

(Chemung, NY) Chemung Speedrome’s season opener was everything a track would hope for – a nice turnout of race teams and fans, competitive racing, and beautiful weather to boot. This marked the first race under the promotional team of Ray and Ellen Hodge. Capitalizing on all the good were feature winners Andy Jankowiak (RoC Modifieds), Nick Robinson (Super Stocks), Bob Borger (RoC 4 Cylinders), Josh Duke (INEX Bandoleros – Outlaw) and Chase Sinsabaugh (INEX Bandoleros – Bandits). Racing resumes this Friday night at 7 PM.

The 75-lap RoC Modified season opener drew a field of 26 cars. Qualifying wins went to Mike Leaty, Tyler Rypkema, Zane Zeiner and Chuck Hossfeld. The top 3 in each heat drew for the top 12 starting spots during intermission and the field was set for the feature.

Tyler Rypkema drew the pole and led the way, chased early on by Mike Leaty and Chuck Hossfeld. The race itself was slowed by 14 cautions, most of which were for spins in turns three and four.  Andy Jankowiak, who broke into the top five about 20 laps into the race, gradually worked his way to the front of the pack and took the lead from Rypkema on lap 46.
While just two drivers led, running among the top five proved to be risky behavior Saturday afternoon. Mike Leaty, Matt Hirschman and Zane Zeiner all learned that the hard way, and restarted at the back after being involved in cautions
.
Andy Jankowiak took the lead from Rypkema on lap 46 and never looked back. He held on and picked up the win over Zack Curren, Bryan Sherwood, Zeiner and Hirschman. “I didn’t have the fastest car, but I avoided the trouble,” Jankowiak said following the win. “I didn’t pass anyone ‘til I got to third,” he said regarding the many wrecks he avoided. Staying out of trouble was key for Curren and Sherwood as well. Both mentioned how that contributed to their podium finishes.

Nick Robinson drew number five and started the 25-lap Super Stock feature from inside the third row. Pole-sitter Mike Nichols led early over Jim Lamoreaux but Robinson moved up nicely and passed Nichols for the lead seven laps in. The pair ran together for several laps, while Frank Chapman and RJ Zacharias fought for third. Nichols reclaimed the lead on lap 18, but Robinson reclaimed it a lap later and he held on through lap 25. Robinson held on for the win over Nichols, Chapman, Zacharias and Robert Fink. “It’s great starting the season off with a win and this crew helped me do it,” he said from victory lane.

The 25-lap RoC 4 Cylinders ran a pair of heats, won by Bob Borger and rookie Joey Bevacqua. The feature was a great battle between Borger and Jacob Gustafson. Several cautions slowed the action. One of those incidents included Dan Dressel, who fought back and worked his way back up toward the front. When this one was over Borger had the win over Gustafson, Dressel, Josh Schosek and Bob Palmer.

The INEX Bandolero division ran a caution-free 10-lap feature. Earlier in the day Josh Duke won their heat race and he started the feature from the pole. Duke made some beautiful moves while lapping cars mid-race and went on to score the win. When asked about those moves that scared some observers, Duke said it had scared him as well. Duke, the overall winner, is running in the Outlaw age bracket while Chase Sinsabaugh made his first-ever appearance in victory lane. He finished second but was the top runner among the Bandits. Jeffrey Noe finished third, followed by Aiden Gardner and Nial Gardner.

Chemung moves to Friday night racing this week for Northern PA Notary Night. The race card includes the track’s five regular divisions – Sunoco Modifieds, Super Stocks and 4 Cylinders, along with the INEX Legends and Bandoleros. It’s also Pack the Track night, with admission slashed to $8 for adults, $5 for seniors, $3 for kids ages 6 to 12, and free to kids ages 5 and under. Pits open at 5 PM this Friday, with practice and grandstand gates at 6 PM and racing starting at 7 PM.

TIM BUCKWALTER DOING DOUBLE DUTY AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY SATURDAY NIGHT

BECHTELSVILLE, PA May 16, 2019 . . . When the tripleheader auto racing action gets the green flag this Saturday night at Grandview Speedway local talent Tim Buckwalter will be doing double duty as he races in the T.P.Trailers NASCAR 358 Modifieds and the Rapid Tire United States Auto Club East Coast Wingless Sprint Cars.

                The Douglassville, PA racing talent has been a winner at Grandview in the NASCAR Modifieds and, in addition, has been a two time champion at Kutztown’s Action Track USA and a champion with the American Racing Drivers Club.

                The veteran racer will be wheeling a sprinter owned by Norristown’s Bill Gallagher and wrenched by multi-time United Racing Club champion Curt Michael. “It’s a good car. One of the best 360 Sprint cars in the area. It is a big opportunity to work with Curt,” said Buckwalter. “I’m excited to see how we do.”

                This will be a first time appearance for the USAC East Coast Sprints at Grandview and a stellar field of racers is expected.

                Buckwalter will also be going up against some outstanding driving talents in the Modifieds, something he is familiar with as he is a Saturday night regular. Ten time NASCAR track champion Craig Von Dohren is the current point leader and already has two feature wins to his credit this season.

                In addition to the Sprints and Modifieds fans will be treated to the exciting action of the T.P.Truck Equipment Sportsman stock cars.

                A full series of qualifying race events will lead up to the feature events in each of the three divisions. Racing has a 7:30 p.m. starting time.

Daryn Pittman, David Gravel & Carson Macedo Lead New-Look World of Outlaws into Weedsport

 

WEEDSPORT, NY (May 13, 2019) – When the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series rolls into Weedsport Speedway this Sunday, May 19, fans may need to double-check their programs and scoring apps.

Several team shake-ups in the off-season have led to seat swapping in 2019 and positive results for all involved.

Of those making changes, Daryn Pittman has led the way in the early season, riding third in the standings as of Friday, May 10 in the Roth Motorsports No. 83.

A former World of Outlaws series champion driving for Kasey Kahne Racing, Pittman was forced to find a new ride this season when KKR consolidated their efforts for 2019.  Pittman landed with the always competitive Roth effort, winning the first two events of the year at Florida’s Volusia Speedway Park.

Joining Pittman with two wins on the season is David Gravel, the new full-time pilot of the Jason Johnson Racing No. 41.

From 2016-2018, Gravel competed behind the wheel of the CJB Motorsports No. 5, winning 32 A-Mains in three seasons.  However, following the untimely passing of former Knoxville Nationals champion, Jason Johnson, Gravel was given the call to take over the seat of the always potent No. 41 in 2019.

Gravel rides fifth in the standings as of May 10, just behind another driver moving to a new team, Carson Macedo.

Macedo, Weedsport’s All-Star Circuit of Champions A-Main winner in 2018, is competing in his first full-time season with the Outlaws, filling the seat in the Kyle Larson Racing No. 2, vacated by Shane Stewart.

Macedo has one World of Outlaws win this season, coming at Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, CA, with 12 Top 10 finishes in 14 starts.

With all this said, Shane Stewart slides into the CJB Motorsports No. 5 for 2019.

Stewart, a 33-time World of Outlaws winner who finished second in the championship standings in 2015, sits seventh in the points as of May 10 with eight Top 10 finishes in 14 starts.

These new-look competitors join the rest of the full-time Outlaws at Weedsport in 2019 including current series point leaders Donny Schatz, in the Tony Stewart Racing No. 15, and Brad Sweet, in the KKR No. 49.

Fellow Outlaws Logan Schuchart, Ian Madsen, Sheldon Haudenschild, Kraig Kinser, Brent Marks, Jason Sides and Jacob Allen will be in the pit area as well fighting for the victory in the Empire State Challenge, won last year by Marks in a thrilling battle with Haudenschild.

The most recent winner on the Outlaws tour this season is 10-time series champion, Donny Schatz.

Schatz dominated night one of “Lets Race Two” at Eldora Speedway on Friday, with night two lost to rain.  The victory at Eldora, his second of the season, moved Schatz to the point lead over Sweet and gave Schatz his 14th consecutive top ten finish to start the season – the only driver to finish in the top ten in all 14 races this year.

Sheppard Streak Continues At LOLR In 2nd Straight Saturday Showstopper

DePuy also doubles as Ridley & Ruggles romp to run away with Land of Legends loot

*Darryl Ruggles victory lane photo attachment by Don Romeo

Canandaigua, NY – May 11, 2019 – Tom Skibinski, Land of Legends Raceway PR

'Super' Matt Sheppard was just that on Saturday night as the Northeast's hottest driver streaked to his second straight Pepsi Big-Block Modified victory at Land Of Legends Raceway in front of a chilled crowd that filled the Ontario Co. Fairgrounds.

The Waterloo warrior remains undefeated in his last eight starts at tracks throughout the region after opening the season in victory lane during the prestigious 48th Annual Florida DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park in February.

“This is the longest streak I've ever been on, everything is just rolling right now and going our way,” summed up Sheppard, 36, who kicked off his 2011 campaign in Canandaigua with three straight Big-Block wins en route to the second of his eight point crowns. He's taken 72 checkered flags since seeing his first at the fairgrounds in 2003.

“You gotta have a lot of things working on your side … really good race cars, good track conditions and most of all some luck. You don't win eight in a row without some kind of luck and fortunately we've had all of the above,” stated Sheppard, in search of a ninth LOLR season championship, now with 128 points in the current standings ahead of Justin Haers (113), Billy Dunn (110) and Erick Rudolph (108).

Adam DePuy kicked off the Saturday Spectacular with a second top finish in the Smith Bros. Drywall Street Stock full-fender feature while LOLR veterans Kevin Ridley (Canandaigua Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep-Ram Sportsman Modified) and Darryl Ruggles (Mike Emhof Motorsports 305 Sprint Car) triumphed in open-wheel mains.

The second night of speedway action was capped off by a demolition derby that attracted 30 adult entries in the non-stop crashfest. When the smoke cleared it was Cohocton's Justin Riley outlasting Toby Wise from Waterloo and Wayland's Jerry Ott to pocket the $800 top prize and earn well-deserved bragging rights. All three took home trophies with Wise ($400) and Ott ($200) also receiving cash rewards.

The last weekend following the 'heads-up' feature format in all divisions pitted qualifying race winners in the front two rows, with Gil Tegg Jr. out-dragging pole-sitter Alan Johnson to jump out to a quick lead in the 35-lap Big-Block finale. After engine woes curtailed the efforts of Rudolph in last week's season-opener, the defending points champ ducked under Tegg the third time around to move out front for a second successive Saturday.

Heat two winner Tegg's night suddenly came to close when an engine issue (possible bent valve) sidelined his own efforts on the seventh circuit, and with 10 laps scored Rudolph led Danny Johnson, Sheppard, Alan Johnson and Haers in the top-five.

Traffic tightened the front-runners early on with eighth-starting Sheppard making the most of an opportunity behind the wheel of his potent #9s Hurlock Auto & Speed-Dendis Companies/Bicknell ride when the time came. In a bold maneuver on lap 12, Sheppard stormed from third to first, and second-place was all that really remained in question the final two-thirds of the race.

“Kinda more luck than anything,” noted Sheppard, who began his weekend by copping the feature Friday at Outlaw Speedway in Dundee and now owns 344 career open-wheel wins. “Erick and Danny both got jammed up pretty hard by a lapped car and I just happened to get a really good run. Was able to get by Danny and then sneak by Erick, after that just stay out of trouble.”

After contact in traffic, Rudolph dropped off the pace with a cut left rear tire to incur the first of three caution periods on lap 13. Derrick Podsiadlo's #21p mount came to a stop out of turn two to require a second second yellow flag on lap 15 while runner-up Danny Johnson suddenly slowed with a broken rear suspension on the #27j Troyer entry to end any bid for victory with 22 laps scored.

Sheppard resumed command back under green as the battle raged on for point positions further back. Dunn overtook Haers for second on lap 23 while Western New York invader Matt Farnham in his first career Big-Block start got past second-generation pilot Kyle Coffey before Rudolph's rally to the front ended in fifth-place with 10 laps left to run.

“Can't say enough about this car, its been fast,” added Sheppard, after the half-straightaway victory over north country contender Dunn. “Wasn't very impressive in the heat, we weren't too thrilled with it, but after making a couple changes it far exceeded my expectations. We were in the right grooves and made the right moves, definitely takes a little bit of everything and we've had that working on our side lately.”

A 26-time winner last season, Sheppard logged a career-best 41 wins in 2017, that year winning only twice prior to mid-May. His nine victories so far in 2019 have come at eight different tracks, staging his lone repeat performance at Land of Legends.

Keeping the hardware in the neighborhood, fellow Waterloo racer Ridley also had his no. 20x Fred's Fab'N Fold-Champion Power Equipment-Lakeshore Auto Mall/Bicknell machine on rails most of the night, holding off Kevin Root by two car-lengths in the 25-lap nail-biter for DIRTcar Sportsman.

“Kevin's car was obviously pretty good to pull alongside me on the bottom and I was pretty decent on top,” began Ridley, 41, the 2014 LOLR Sportsman high-point man on the heels of his 27th career win at Canandaigua, which ranks him fourth all-time. “We had that long green flag run there and I was wicked loose, couldn't believe no one passed me as I really didn't know where to run. Then the caution came out and I got a little assistance from my crew on the back stretch pointing to the top. Then I saw Kevin down low and figured it was a bad choice but our momentum prevailed in the end.”

Ridley had to wait out a 15-minute delay and a complete restart before he could get on track in the Sportsman feature. Pole-winner Ricky Newton slowed exiting turn one on the initial circuit and before the dust settled nearly a dozen cars had stacked up with the back straightaway just in view. Before the rare red flag situation arose, Frank Guererri had rolled over coming out of turn two and after the field came to a complete stop the right front wheel of Anthony Kimble sat wedged inside Newton's car. No injuries were reported yet plenty of sheet metal damage was evident.

Root nosed ahead of 2nd-place starter Ridley on the second try yet the final exchange came the next time around. Ridley was able to open up a comfortable lead under consecutive green flag laps and at the halfway mark Root, the Guererri gang ---Paul, Nick, Matt--- and Steve Gray were all dicing in the mix.

Heavy traffic bunched the front-runners with 10 to go, allowing Root to close in on Ridley as the laps dwindled. Legends division grad Sam Hoxie looped low in turn four after dueling with Root and the yellow flag unfurled on lap 19 to put the leaders bumper-to-bumper with just a handful of laps remaining and a clear track ahead.

Ridley and Root pulled away under green followed in tow by the Guererris as last week's winner Kane Bristol, rebounding aboard his bent-up Bicknell after involvement in the first lap mishap, continued his march toward the front. At the stripe all-time track Sportsman winner Paul Guererri held on for third behind Ridley and Root, with Bristol edging Matt Guererri at the line for fourth.

Bristol (119) tops the point standings followed by Paul Guererri (112) and Root (110).

“Last week we were just trying to work out some bugs, hadn't run the car this year up to that point,” said Ridley, who waited until August to post his one win last season, eventually climbing to ninth in the final point standings. “Figured we'd start in the back and see how far we could get. We actually did pretty good and finished 10th with no cautions, which is pretty good considering a lot fast cars were here racing on a real fast track. Tonight we decided to race and here we are.”

The MEM 305 Sprint Car A-Main was literally the fastest of the night as it took just six minutes to cover a 10-mile distance in the caution-free 20-lap winged affair. Hopewell's Ruggles wrestled the lead away from '17 LOLR points champ Jason Whipple on lap seven then staved off every challenge from season-opening victor Johnny Kolosek to capture his division-high 36th win on the hallowed half-miler.

“Last year it took me four weeks to get (victory lane),” said Ruggles, 53, in defense of the 305 title for the fourth time in his life-long racing career at Canandaigua. “Last week we had a terrible car, worked on it pretty hard all week and changed a bunch of parts. Just can't thank everybody enough on this total team effort.”

As soon as Ruggles powered into the lead, it was Kolosek securing second to set up a dazzling dirt trackin' duel despite a 35-year age gap separating the two racers. By the midway point Kolosek trimmed the deficit to 3/10-sec. and with five laps left dove underneath before Ruggles quickly regrouped and sped on to a decisive eight car-length victory as a pair of lapped cars set back runner-up Kolosek at the wire.

“The track was awesome tonight, there were 2-3 lanes to work from,” added Ruggles, who finished third a week earlier steering his familiar 'safety yellow' no. 48jr. Danny Willmes Enterprses-VanBortel Trucking/Eagle sporting a Mike Mastin-built engine. “I saw Johnny inside there for a few minutes and I said 'better get going' because I was getting lazy driving. I just started to run real hard at the end, don't really know how close he was then as I just didn't let up.”

Ruggles' daughter Alysha Bay settled for third after posting a DNF last week while Whipple salvaged fourth ahead of Brandyn Griffin. Kolosek (116) leads Ruggles (112) on the points chart through two events with a round three rematch set for Saturday evening.

Mirroring the opening day Street Stock feature when a late-race caution flag flew to set up a one-lap run to the checkers, the second installment was far from a reflection as DePuy had to survive a valiant effort from Mike Welch to match his week one triumph in Canandaigua's only stock car class.

“A lot tougher race tonight, these races are getting tougher and tougher and the cars are getting better and better,” remarked DePuy, 45, after claiming the first two full-fender feature events for the second straight season. “(Welch) ran me clean, can't complain about that, it was a great race.”

Still in search of his first stock car win, Parker Smith and Jimmy Grant brought the 19-car field to the Bakers Exterminators Flagstand and the drop of starter Scott Hixson's where Grant would jump out to an early lead. Welch, Quinn Sutherland and DePuy stayed in sight before the the first yellow flag came on lap five.

Sutherland looped his mount by himself sliding out of turn one, with low running Smith and high-line racer Marc Minutolo taking evasive action to avoid the backward-facing #57j car before Bob Buono slammed into Sutherland's parked Chevrolet Malibu wagon. Back under green, Canandaigua's winningest stock car driver Welch moved to the point, followed in his tire tracks by fourth-starting DePuy.

Carl Whittaker's #69r Chevy Camaro bounced off the turn four concrete retaining wall and limped around the track to slow the action once more on lap seven. And it was on the restart that DePuy forged the final lead change, with Welch holding off Minutolo at the halfway mark.

Grant improved to third with five to go with the last lap shootout providing a chance to overtake Welch, who had his own sights set on dethroning DePuy. Chris Beyea slowed down the back chute and William Bradley Jr. spun in turn four simultaneously to incur the final caution forcing DePuy to relive the last half-mile.

Welch made a beeline for the inside lane as soon as the green flag flew to pull side-by-side with DePuy as the lead duo crossed the line with one to go. But just like last week, it was the no. 99 IFreeze Storage & Distribution Center-A.E.Y. Enterprises-Fox's Auto/Chevrolet Camaro out front at the checkers as Welch and Grant could only settle for podium finishes.

“Thought I gave it away on that last restart,” divulged DePuy, following Canandaigua career win #39 for the defending points king. “Saw the double-zero get underneath me so I just buried it into (turns) one and two and was like 'please stay.' Had no clue how the top side was as we were running the bottom and (Welch) was on the top more so I didn't know what we were going to do to be honest. Either going to go out of the ballpark or we were going to stick.”

“This is the second week driving the car. I've driven with leaf springs my whole life and this has coils. Haven't changed anything since we bought (car) so we'll just keep rolling with it,” DePuy added, who remains atop the standings with 120 points followed by Minutolo (106), Welch (104) and Grant (102).

For the second straight week the Sportsman 'B Feature' put an exclamation point on the Saturday Spectacular with first-time winner Garrison Krentz from Pendleton (near Lockport) taking home the $100 top prize.

Last year's Sportsman Legends regular Tyler Vinson paced the pack along with Nick Cooper before seventh-starting Krentz reeled in the front-runners. Krentz displaced Cooper on lap seven then put his no 56 WNY Amateur Sports-Mark's Plumbing/Bicknell machine ahead of Vinson the next lap en route to establishing a convincing 2/3-straightaway victory margin.

“There's grip on the bottom, that's where it was at tonight and the car was running good there,” said Krentz, a two-time Sportsman winner last summer at Ransomville Speedway closer to home out west. “Would've rather won the the other feature but we had a radiator cap blow off in the consi so that ended any real chance.”

LEGEND LEDGER

The first individual to be honored in 2019 on the Land Of Legends Wall of Fame this coming Saturday is the late engine-builder Milt Johnson, father of long-time Canandaigua competitors Alan and Danny Johnson. Johnson joins his son Alan, pioneer driver Dutch Hoag, 'Barefoot' Bob McCreadie and prominent promoter Glenn Donnelly as charter member WoF inductees from a year ago.

While Johnson's crowning glory in Canandaigua came as Sportsman points champion in 1961, his greatest impact was measured outside the cockpit as his renowned engine-building business B&M Speed Shop assembled powerplants for such nationally recognized race winners as Richie Evans, Jerry Cook, Lou Lazzaro, Billy Rafter and Merv Treichler.

Johnson's pre-race induction ceremonies on May 18 highlight a 'Saturday Spectacular' filled with Pepsi Big-Block Modified, Canandaigua Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep-Ram Sportsman and Smith Bros. Drywall Street Stock racing plus a full card of CRSA 305 Sprint Car action. Next Saturday's show also marks the first handicapped features of the season, in lieu of the 'heads-up' format instituted during the initial two season-opening events.

A Shoot Out For Soldiers Benefit raffle will also be held during the night with race time set for 7 p.m. Pit gates unlock at 4:00 and grandstand seating opens at 5 p.m. Hot laps go green at 6 o'clock.

With the 56th season finally underway, be sure to follow the point standings and breaking news online by visiting www.LandOfLegendsRaceway.com. Advance sale tickets are also available for purchase online throughout the upcoming months. Log into the website (LandOfLegendsRaceway.com), hit the red “Buy Tickets” button on the homepage, then make a selection from the list of dates & events highlighted.

Land of Legends Raceway is located at the Ontario County Fairgrounds, east of the city on Town Line Road (County Road 10), with easy access off either Exit 43 (Manchester, Route 21 South) or Exit 44 (Farmington, Route 332 South) of the New York State Thruway, just ½-hour southeast of Rochester.

Oxford, ME – Jeff Taylor of Farmington drove to a convincing victory Saturday night, winning the Budweiser Championship Series Super Late Model race at Oxford Plains Speedway.

 

Taylor, the most prolific track champion in modern day Oxford Plains Speedway history, last won at the track in a 2015 Pro All Stars Series race.  He last won in weekly competition driving a Late Model in 2011.  His last weekly racing series Super Late Model victory came in 2006, the year he earned his ninth, and most recent, track title at the historic Route 26 speedplant.

Peter Britten Wins at Albany- Saratoga May 10th

Malta, NY – Now, that was worth the wait.

After four consecutive rainouts, Albany-Saratoga Speedway finally kicked off its 2019 season Friday night, with 2017 track champion Peter Britten winning the 35-lap modified feature.

Britten won the first heat, putting him on the pole for the feature, and led all but one lap of the feature.

But this feature was anything but boring.

In the early stages of the race, Keith Flach got wound up on the outside groove, and charged past Britten to get the lead on lap three. But just one lap later, Britten regained the momentum on the bottom, and was back in front.

The leaders got into lapped traffic after just 10 laps, and Britten avoided disaster on lap 11 when he made contact with the lapped car of Brian Berger coming out of the fourth turn and brushed the outside wall.

Then, Flach made another charge. On lap 18, Britten and Flach were running side-by -side as they battled for the lead, but Flach had his momentum broken by the lapped car of Rich Ronca, and Britten dodged another bullet.

But it wasn’t over yet. While Britten and Flach were dealing with lapped traffic, Anthony Perrego found something on the top side, and quickly closed the gap on the top two. Perrego, who was at Albany-Saratoga on Friday as a tune-up for Tuesday night’s $5,400-to-win “Come ‘N Get It” modified shootout, which was rained out last month, moved past Flach to take over second on lap 32 and then tried to make a slingshot move off the third turn on the final lap, but Britten held his line and came away with his ninth career win at Albany-Saratoga Speedway.

“I always have a terrible draw for races like this, but tonight, I had a good draw, won my heat race and started up front, and that made it easier,” said Britten. “I knew with all the lapped traffic that someone would be close to me, but I’ll tell you, it’s good to be back in Malta.”

Flach finished third, with defending track champion Brett Hearn fourth and Marc Johnson fifth.

Flach admitted that he was fast early in the race, but “… then the top got real dusty, and I didn’t think I would get by Peter if I stayed up there.”

“I figured the top would go away,” said Britten. “But when Keith rolled up on me, I got up on the wheel a little more.”

Connor Cleveland came from his 12th starting position to win the 25-lap sportsman feature. Brian Calabrese led the first 10 laps, but a couple of restarts allowed Cleveland to close in on the leader, and he dove low in the first turn on lap 13 to take the lead away from Calabrese.

Following Cleveland across the finish line were Jeremy Pitts, Robert Bublak Jr., Calabrese and Jack Speshock, who nipped Justin Buff as the finish line for the fifth spot.

“In the beginning, I realized we made two wrong changes,” said Cleveland after the race. “The changes made me way too tight on top, but once I got to the bottom, the car was a rocket.”

Josh Coonradt, who said during the winter that he was setting his sights on the pro stock championship at Albany-Saratoga, got off to a good start by winning the opening-night feature on Friday.

Coonradt started third in the 25-lap feature and rocketed into the lead after just one lap, but the top group of Coonradt, Chuck Dumblewski, Kim Duell and Brandon Emigh put on an entertaining show. Dumblewski and Duell swapped the No. 2 spot on a couple of occasions, until Emigh made his run, took over second on a restart, and then moved by Coonradt for the lead on lap 12.

But three laps later, Coonradt was back out front, and that’s where he stayed. Emigh finished second, with Dumblewski third, Dan Older fourth and Duell fifth.

Dylan Bokus was first under the checkered flag in the 20-lap Haun Welding limited sportsman feature. After an early yellow, Bokus went around both Shane Larman and Josh Rozzelle to go from third to first on lap five. He then held off Dave Richer to get the win.

John Filarecki went flag-to-flag to win the 15-lap Lake Auto Parts street stock feature, holding off a challenge from Al Relyea, and David Frame won the Greg’s Towing four-cylinder feature. Allanna Jordan had the first single-cam car across the finish line, finishing third overall.

Albany-Saratoga Speedway will be back in action Tuesday night with the rain-delayed “Come ‘N Get It” program. Racing will begin at 7 p.m.

DJ Shaw triumphant in PASS North Super Late Model action at Star Speedway

 

Epping, NH – Reigning Pro All Stars Series North Super Late Model Champion DJ Shaw of Center Conway, New Hampshire drove to his second win of the season Saturday night in a wild Little Webb’s Tire & Fuel 150 at Star Speedway in Epping, New Hampshire.

 

Longtime Star Speedway competitor Joe Squeglia of Derry, New Hampshire, who led a healthy chunk of the 150-lap race, rebounded from a couple of mid-race skirmishes to earn runner-up honors.  Nick Sweet of Barre, Vermont posted an impressive third-place finish after lining up for the race in 20th position.

 

Six-time PASS North Super Late Model champion Johnny Clark made a late charge into fourth spot after setting the race pace for several laps before misfortune struck.  Reid Lanpher of Manchester, Maine started dead last in the 23-car field, got caught up in the wreck that took out Pole and Griffith, made what seemed like a dozen pit stops and then drove back into the top five as the checkered flag waved.

 

Race winner Shaw, who skipped practice to attend a wedding in Maine, got to the Speedway just minutes before qualifying got underway.  Starting the 150-lap main event from 11th position, he avoided the early carnage that sidelined early race leader Joey Pole, Jr. and reigning PASS Super Late Model champion Derek Griffith, both from Hudson, New Hampshire.

 

Shaw took the lead away from Derek Ramstrom, but the battle went on for several laps of side-by-side action before Ramstrom spun from the inside groove, and out of contention for the victory.  The Worcester, Masachusetts racer eventually crossed the finish line in seventh position.

 

Turner, Maine’s Ben Rowe led the early stages of the race and deserved a better fate than his eventual 14th-place finish, and the nine-time PASS SLM champ wasn’t the only racer bounced around in an uncharacteristically-rough main event.  Garrett Hall of Scarborough, Maine, second in the championship standings entering the race, also deserved better than the sixth-place finish he was credited with after being harpooned by a part-time competitor late in the race.

 

Shaw and the Precision JLM Racing team extended their lead atop the PASS North Super Late Model championship standings with the victory.  The next Pro All Stars Series North Super Late Model race is scheduled for Sunday afternoon, May 19 at Speedway 51 in Groveton, New Hampshire.  Post time is 1:00 p.m.  For more information please visit proallstarsseries.com or call (207) 539-8865.
