Curtis Gerry scores another PASS Super Late Model victory at Oxford Plains Speedway

 

Oxford, Maine – Curtis Gerry of Waterboro, Maine is a hard man to beat when he gets his Super Late Model dialed in at Oxford, and he scored his first points-counting Pro All Stars Series Super Late Model race of the season Sunday night at Oxford Plains Speedway.

 

Gerry, who has three race wins in Saturday night Budweiser Championship Series Super Late Model competition this year at Oxford, also won last Sunday’s PASS Open 100-lapper and has five Super Late Model triumphs to his credit this season at the historic Route 26 oval track.

 

“We needed this one” Gerry claimed in victory lane.  His rivals would beg to differ.  At times it looked like a couple of his fellow competitors might have something for Gerry, as a partial cloud cover saw track conditions change several times during the 150-lapper.

 

Ben Rowe, nine times a PASS champion, appeared poised to break his dry spell, took a turn or two in front of the field and waged a couple of great battles for the top spot with both Nick Sweet of Barre, Vermont and Pittston, Maine’s Ben Ashline.

 

Ashline, in Ajay Picard’s 99, looked like the man to beat early in the 150, but behind Gerry the late-race entertainment was a Rowe/Sweet clash for runner-up honors, won by Rowe.  Sweet, right in the thick of the PASS North Super Late Model championship battle, brought another trophy home to the Green Mountain State after a third-place run.

 

Eddie MacDonald of Rowley, Massachusetts crossed the finish line in fourth spot.  Reid Lanpher of Manchester, Maine completed the top-five rundown.  Ashline, in his first OPS Super Late Model start of the year, was sixth in the Picard car, with six-time PASS North kingpin Johnny Clark of Farmingdale, Maine seventh.  Garrett Hall of Scarborough, Maine had a couple rivals cut into his slim lead in the championship standings after ending up in eighth position.  Travis Benjamin or Morrill, Maine and Atlantic Canadian Super Late Model champion Cole Butcher of Hantsport, Nova Scotia rounded out the top ten.

 

 

Tyler King of Gray nailed down his first PASS Mods victory, using the outside groove early and often in the 40-lap race to earn the top step on the podium in just his fourth race in the open-wheel class.  King took the lead away from eventual runner-up Justin Larsen of Peru, also in just his fourth PASS Mods appearance.

 

Waterford’ s Spencer Morse was third under the checkered flag, good enough to remain atop the PASS Mods championship point standings.  Freeport’s Jariet Harrison was the fourth-place finisher, followed by Matty Sanborn of Windham.

 

Kyle Hewins led almost all the way to earn his first Street Stock victory of the year in the 50-lap Honey Badger Bar & Grill Series race.  Hewins, a Leeds native now calling Oxford home, battled former Street Stco champion Billy Childs, Jr. of Leeds early in the race, then outran long-distance specialist Gary Babineau of Hollis to the checkered flag.

 

Matt Dufault, the weekly racing series champion from Turner, earned third-place money.  Childs ended up in fourth position, good enough to remain atop the Honey Badger Bar & Grill Street Stock Series standings.  Jordan Russell who won the third round of the series of 50-lap events, rounded out the top five and remained second in the series rankings.

 

The next event for the Pro All Stars Series Super Late Models is this Saturday night, July 20 at White Mountain Motorsports Park in North Woodstock, New Hampshire.  Post time is 6:00 p.m.  For more information visit oxfordplains.com, proallstarsseries.com or call (207) 539-8865.

Super DIRTcar Series Returns to Weedsport Speedway on Sunday, July 28 for $10,000 to win Hall of Fame 100

WEEDSPORT, NY (July 18, 2019) – Weedsport Speedway will roar to life once again on Sunday, July 28 for the Super DIRTcar Series Big Block Modified Hall of Fame 100, paying $10,000 to the winner along with a guaranteed starting spot in the NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week Billy Whittaker Cars 200.

The Hall of Fame 100 will mark the second of three stops for the Super DIRTcar Series to Weedsport, as Ransomville, NY driver Erick Rudolph looks to keep his run alive at The Port.

Rudolph has won the last two series stops at Weedsport coming in as the defending champion of the Hall of Fame 100, his first career Big Block win at Weedsport, as well as the winner of the Heroes Remembered 100 on Memorial Day.

Over the course of the last year, nobody has stood on top of Weedsport Speedway’s Victory Hill more than Rudolph in Modified competition.

The third-generation racer added yet another Series victory at Weedsport last October by winning the 358-Modified Series event at The Port during Super DIRT Week.

Rudolph aims to continue that momentum in this year’s Hall of Fame 100, as he looks to battle his way back to the top of the Super DIRTcar Series point standings.

Despite being fast all year long, an up and down campaign has dropped Rudolph to sixth in the series points as of July 17, seeing his lone Weedsport win coupled with two Top 5 finishes and three Top 10 runs in the first six events of the year.

Rudolph will be joined in the Hall of Fame 100 by a long list of Modified contenders hoping to knock him off Victory Hill including Matt Sheppard, Larry Wight, Mat Williamson, Jimmy Phelps, Billy Decker, Peter Bitten, Danny Johnson, Mike Mahaney and more.

The Hall of Fame 100 comes in the middle of a busy stretch of July action for the Super DIRTcar Series which sees six events scheduled across two weeks including stops at Orange County Fair Speedway, Autodrome Drummond and Autodrome Granby as well as Sharon Speedway and Eldora Speedway.

Joining the Super DIRTcar Series Big Block Modifieds as part of the Hall of Fame 100 will be the DIRTcar Sportsman as well as the Classics on DIRT.

Pit gates will open on July 28 at 4 p.m. with grandstand gates opening at 5 p.m.  Racing will start for the evening at 7 p.m.

Reserved seating is $32 with FREE Fan Pit Pass Upgrades available through July 24.

Nick McGill Declared Pencils Down Showdown Clone Heavy Winner at Weedsport; Jeremy Tuttle Scores $500 in PRO Clone 360

 

WEEDSPORT, NY (July 18, 2019) – Just over a week following Weedsport Kartway’s Pencils Down Showdown held on Sunday, July 7, Nick McGill has officially been declared the day’s Clone Heavy A-Main winner.

McGill was bumped from third to first position after the top two finishers in Clone Heavy failed post-race inspection.

Official results were put on hold from July 7 so that the AKRA could verify the tech mandate handed down by Weedsport Kartway officials.

“We apologize for the delay in posting official results,” said Weedsport Speedway Promoter, Jimmy Phelps.  “We wanted to be sure we did everything we could to ensure that our findings were accurate.  We sent the engine in question to the AKRA so that they could verify our findings, which they did.  A regional tech inspector for the AKRA came to the same conclusion as our team.  I want to thank everyone for their patience and thank our officials for their diligence.”

As a result of post-race technical inspection both Richard Murtaugh and Chris Pier have been scored last in Clone Heavy and PRO Clone 360.

Murtaugh and Pier will receive only show-up points (40) for the Clone Heavy points A-Main and forfeit all money earned in PRO Clone 360.  A second technical offense will result in zero points earned.

Doug Payne now officially moves to the runner-up position in Clone Heavy followed by Devon Tonkin, Jake Cratsley and Jeff Chapman.

Jeremy Tuttle showed the way in the day’s PRO Clone 360 main, driving the No. 11 to a $500 victory.  Doug Stearly, Trent Curtis, Seth Perrin and Chance Weaver would officially end in the money.

PRO Blue Clone was won in dominant fashion by the No. 22T of Tanner Emmons.  Emmons pocketed $250 for his win over Logan Crisafulli, Dylan Begy, Jude Parker and Owen Bird.

The Jr. Blue Clone points main event was once again won by Crisafulli in the No. 88.  Bird would take second in a fantastic finish at the line with Begy, Emmons and Parker the top five.

The Jr. Red Clone victor on July 7 was Blake Banek ahead of Levi Godfrey, Deegan Nichols, AJ Vanderpool and Kolton Gamble.

Clone Light once again saw a large field of over 20 entries with John Palmieri taking the checkered flag in the No. 27J.  Palmieri topped Devon Tonkin, Mike Adderly, David Hackett Jr. and Tyler Thompson.

Clone Super Heavy saw another competitive feature on July 7 with McGill returning to victory lane in the No. 13.  Trailing McGill across the line was Thomas Montgomery, Murtaugh, Matt Chavis and Rick Raner.

Tyler Emmons was the winner in Jr. Purple Clone ahead of Anthony Pollow, James Donaldson, Caiden Ayen and Nigel Pendykoski.

Jr. Green Clone saw a popular victory for Parker Allen in the No. 30 over Conor Crane, Colt Kimball, Derek Turner Jr. and Grayson Adderly.

MOTHER NATURE WINS MIDSEASON CHAMPIONSHIP AT THE HILL.

     The pits were full of race teams, the driveway into the spectator area was lined with cars, Forbe's Machine Shop in Wysox was on hand with the hardware for the winning drivers in Friday night's Mid Season Championship events...and then...with a nod to Garth Brooks..."the thunder rolls, and the lighning strikes..."
It was soon apparent that any hopes of on track action were gone, and The Hill Speedway management reluctantly pulled the plug.

     Now it will be two weeks before those trophies can be competed for. In a nod to the Troy Fair, The Hill Speedway has a planned night off on Friday,  July 26. The 30 lap Mid Season Championship races for all divisions are rescheduled to August 2nd, with WOC Energy providing the sponsorship. Forbe's Machine Shop night will move to August 23.

     For all competitors and fans that were on hand this week, put your wristbands in a safe place, track management will honor them for entry at any upcoming event scheduled for the remainder of the 2019 season.
 
     As we prepare for the rescheduled races, a review of the points standings needs to be done. With six races complete so far this season, the points battles are heating up in every division. Close competition in all classes and many different feature winners listed have kept the year end awards in doubt.

MODIFIED... With three wins, Jack Lamphere is atop the leader board in this class, but he can't breathe easy just yet. Jake Maynardk is less than thirty points back in second, and has already been to Victory Lane once this season. Likewise, Eddie Sites in third has a win, and if Lamphere has one bad night, especially on a double points night, either of these two could vault to the top of the standings. Mathmatically speaking, defending Champion Gary Lamphere in fourth, and fifth place Keith Lamphere aren't out of the running, either. The remaining top ten are Jason Benjamin, Harry Ely, J.W. Lamphere, Logan Terry, and Bobby Maynard.

CRATE SPORTSMAN...Waverly's Chris Clemen's hasn't pulled into the Winner's Circle yet this season, but consistant finishes have put the unsponsored privateer at the top of the points standings, but by a slim margin. Rick Powell in second, and Dalton Maynard in third each have a win recorded this year, and both would like to double up in a competitive division that has seen five different winners in six features run. Ajay Potrezbowski (two wins) and Dayton Brewer (one win) are fourth and fifth, and while they could improve their standings, have dropped from contention for the Championship. Braden Buchanan is sixth, Ray Smith seventh, Rich Talada eighth, Grant Hilfiger ninth, and Randy Fox tenth.

STREET STOCK...Earl Zimmer has translated his four feature wins into a solid lead in the points standings, and while anything can happen, the points race looks to be a battle for second through fifth. Dustin Maynard cruised into Victory Lane on June 29th,  laying claim to second in points, but Street Stock rookie Mike Koser has been improving weekly and is within striking distance of the runnerup spot. Koser is feeling the pressure from Dan Force and Rich Sharpsteen as third through fifth is separated by thirty four points. Bill Tice,  Bobby Maynard,  Cody Kershner, Chad Ely, and Abe Romanick round out the top ten.

PURE STOCK... While this division has only had their own feature for the past three weeks, the number of competitors is growing and the competition is fierce with three different drivers recording feature wins. Chris Woodard,  with one win, sits atop the leader board, but Les Smith, who has yet to grab a feature flag, is only twenty points back in second. Third through tenth is separated by only fifty points, making for a lot of movement in the coming weeks. Cole Burgess is third, Mike Chilson is fourth, and Duane Bailey is fifth. Sixth through tenth are Kevin Garland, Cliff Miller, Daltyn Decker, Jimmy Hollister, and Kenny Benjamin Jr.

FRONT WHEEL DRIVE FOUR CYLINDER...The competition and parity in this class has provided some great racing, and right now any one of four drivers could jump to the top of the list with one good night. Matt Browning currently leads the way, but defending Champion Adam Delgrosso, Devon Bailey, and Trevor Williams all are within reach of the Season Championship trophy.  Matt McKernan,  who won the first two features of the season, sits fifth, mostly due to destroying his car and not yet returning with a replacement. Tim Johnson is sixth, Owen Clark seventh, Mike Ely eighth, Burt Maynard ninth, and Greg McKernan tenth.

REAR WHEEL DRIVE FOUR CYLINDER...Only a ten point spread covers the top three in this class, and it's still anyone's guess who will prevail over the next few weeks. Joe Lane has three feature wins, and leads by four points over Larry Colton who has two. Scott Bump is third, in reach of the title, but has yet to visit Victory Lane in a feature. Alan Blackwell has a feature win, but missing a week has put him back in fourth. Mike Navone rounds out the top five. Sixth through tenth are Tony Dickerson, Tyler Belcher, Robert Decker, Stan Mathews,  and Eric Ellsworth.

     The Hill Speedway is a one quarter mile dirt surface oval track located adjacent to the Dunn Hill Road-Banks Road intersection just a couple miles off SR414 in Monroeton, PA. It presents auto racing, with six different classes of competition, on Friday nights throughout the summer. Gates open at 5pm, practice is at 6:30, with competition scheduled to begin at 7pm.

“Chemung Rained Out, Veterans to be Honored This Friday”
by Carol Houssock”
 
(Chemung, NY) Extreme heat was going to make it uncomfortable, but when heavy thunderstorms roared into the area it forced Chemung Speedrome officials to pull the plug on the Friday night program. It was to have been a night when the track honored those who served, or currently are serving, in the military.
 
The entire show has been postponed one week and will be presented this Friday night. Anyone showing his or her military ID will be admitted to the grandstand free. All five regular divisions will be in action. Current point leaders include Zack Knowlden (Sunoco Modifieds), Nick Robinson (Super Stocks), Greg Moldt (4 Cylinders), Gary Ham (INEX Legends), and Josh Duke (Bandoleros - Outlaws). Chase Sinsabaugh, whose car was detailed with a special look for the veterans who will be honored, is the leader among the Bandits in the Bandolero division. Admission this week is $13 for adults, $11 for seniors, $5 for kids ages 6 to 12, and free to kids ages 5 and under. Pits open at 5 PM, with practice and grandstand gates at 6 PM and racing starting at 7 PM.
 
Next weekend Chemung moves to Saturday night (August 3rd) for the return of the Race of Champions Modified series. The race card that night will also include the RoC Super Stocks and TQ Midgets. The modifieds will compete for 75 laps in the Rod Spalding Memorial, an event that traditionally attracts many racers, crew members and others affiliated with Chemung and the old Shangri-la for a reunion. The Spalding Foundation for Injured Drivers will hold several different fundraisers during the event.

For information on either of these events, log on to the track’s website: chemungspeedrome.net, ‘like’ us on Facebook: Chemung Speedrome – Racing at the Drome, or call Ray Hodge, Promoter, at 607-483-3468.

DYLAN SWINEHART, BRAD BRIGHTBILL, CASSEL AND NEIMAN WIN HATFIELD QUALITY MEATS FEATURES AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY SATURDAY NIGHT

BECHTELSVILLE, PA. JULY 14, 2019 . . . Dylan Swinehart, former Sportsman rookie driver, took on a big responsibility taking over the driving reins of the Bailey Fabrications 358 Modified No. 81 owned by his grandparents Dennis and Joanne Bailey for the 2019 season at Grandview Speedway. The third generation driver of the Swinehart/Bailey racing family with Dylan’s other grandfather being two-time Grandview point champion and still a weekly competitor Ray Swinehart, has been struggling with not qualifying, and other obstacles along the way, finally had a change of luck on Saturday night when he took home the checkered flag in the 30-lap TP Trailers NASCAR 358 Modified feature that was part of the Hatfield Quality Meats sponsored night of racing. A jubilant victor thanked his grandparents and commented he almost “lost it” since he was running the car so hard as he went on to become the sixth different winner in the division.

Brad Brightbill was in the right position at the right moment when track officials put leader Jack Butler back two positions on the 23rd lap restart because of his cat and mouse tactics on previous restarts that created numerous problems in the Firecracker 40-lap T. /P. Truck Equipment NASCAR Sportsman feature. Brightbill inherited the lead through this decision and went on to claim his third win of the season in the division and claimed a $2,000 payday.

In the 15-lap Blast From The Past feature, Andy Cassel won the Modified portion while Curt Neiman was the winner for the Vintage class.

The night’s activities were sponsored by Hatfield Quality Meats and broadcast live by RCN TV, Allentown.

Providing the Modified and Sportsman feature winners met the necessary requirements, they received monetary awards from TP Trailers and a certificate from VP Fuels for product awards. The Dan’s Deli ½-way hoagie award recipients were Swinehart and Butler. Derrick Smith was the highest finisher in 11th with a crate engine in the Sportsman division and received an extra $150.

Rookie Richie Hitzler led the first two laps of the Modified feature before Kevin Hirthler brought out the only yellow with a right rear flat tire. Following a quick pit stop he was able to rejoin the action. On the restart Swinehart, another rookie, charged into the lead with Hitzler, Joe Funk III, another rookie in the division; Kory Fleming and Ray Swinehart in tow.

Funk III took chase after Swinehart once he moved into second on the fifth lap.

For the next several laps the top five order continued to be Swinehart, Funk III, Hitzler, Fleming and R. Swinehart. Attempting to break into the top five were Timmy Buckwalter and Brett Kressley. Buckwalter got into fourth by the 16th lap, but it wasn’t until the 23rd lap that Kressley was fifth with both drivers on the move to advance.

By lap 25 Swinehart approached lap traffic and it didn’t take Funk III long to reel him in along with the rest of the top five consisting of Buckwalter, Kressley and Doug Manmiller.

Swinehart kept the competition behind him to pull into victory lane. Grabbing second as they crossed the line was Kressley followed by Funk III, Buckwalter and Manmiller.

Ryan Grim, D. Swinehart, Clay Butler and Kressley were the heat winners. Consies were won by Duane Howard and Louden Reimert.

Polesitter Steve Desmelyk led the Sportsman feature for six laps until Jesse Leiby stopped in the second turn for the caution. On the restart, third place runner Jack Butler took the inside lane and got past Chris Esposito and Desmelyk for the lead.

It didn’t take Butler long to build up a straightaway lead and just as he caught the back of the pack, Nathan Mohr spun along the homestretch. Butler brought the field in for the restart very slow bunching everyone else up behind him with Parker Guldin, already a feature winner this year; early leader Desmelyk and Mohr tangling in turn one. The next restart was no better and Andrew Kreis slowed in the first turn. Butler was warned on both occasions to pick up the pace on the restarts. Butler kept the lead, but by now Kyle Lilick was second followed by Brightbill, Esposito and Dean Bachman.

The yellow was out again when Ryan Beltz was spun along the backstretch. Brian Hirthler was placed to the back for the incident. Once again it was a slow start with everyone side-by-side bumper-to-bumper, but Butler maintained first.

Desmelyk spun again on the 22nd lap for another caution. At this time officials deemed it necessary to place Butler back to third for ignoring their warnings. This put Brightbill and Kyle Lilick trying to overtake him.

Towards the closing stages Brightbill approached lapped cars, but that didn’t hinder him and he went on to victory. Brightbill said in victory lane that “he didn’t like to win the race like that putting Jack back, but there’s nothing he could do about it.” Finishing second was Lilick followed by Butler, Brad Arnold and Dean Bachman.

Desmelyk, Esposito and Sean Weiss won the heats. The consi was won by Brandon Edgar.

Andy Cassel, running their Modified class, led the Blast From The Past feature, from start to finish with only one caution period to interrupt. Following Cassel across were Brett Peters, Jeff Paulson, Mike Stofflet and Todd Lapp. Curt Neiman, a Vintage car, finished sixth and won the division’s class segment.

Coming up on Saturday, July 20th is another tripleheader show featuring the Capital Renegade United Racing Club Sprints in their first appearance of the season at Grandview. Sprint events will be sponsored by Victory Auto Glass with the feature paying $2,000 to win. Heading up the Sprint action will be Josh Weller, Chad Layton, Curt Michael, Austin Bishop, former Grandview Late Model champion Ed Aikin who has a URC feature win this season and a host of other Sprint standouts. As an added attraction URC will be hosting a Legends Reunion in the first turn pavilion area. Legends will be signing autographs and chatting with fans starting at 6 p.m. Included amongst the legends will be Sean Michael, Becca Anderson, Mares Stellfox, Charlie Massey, Greg Coverdale, Frannie Hogue, Ed Wylie and host of others.

Thirty minutes earlier the Low Down and Dirty Meet & Greet will feature a handful of Grandview regulars and URC racers at the front admission gate.

The NASCAR 358 Modifieds and Sportsman will be making up the rest of the three division show that is sponsored by T.P.Trailers and Truck Equipment of Limerick, PA.

Adult admission for this not to be missed show is $25, youngsters 6 through 11 pay $5 and kids under 6 are admitted free.

Calvin Rose outruns Super Late Model field at Oxford Plains Speedway

 

Oxford, ME – Calvin Rose, Jr. of Turner raced to his first Super Late Model win of the season Saturday night in Budweiser Championship Series stock car racing action at Oxford Plains Speedway.

 

Rose, a former champion in the second-tier Street Stock class, took the lead away from four-time track champion Timmy Brackett of Buckfield about a quarter of the way through the 50-lap, caution-free race, then stayed in front of fast-closing Curtis Gerry of Waterboro.

 

It was the second career Super Late Model win for Rose.  Gerry, who lined up 19th, again impressed, earning runner-up honors without the benefit of a restart.  Brackett, who has been luckless all season long, ended up with the third-place trophy after the checkered flag waved.

 

Dan Winter of Windham, New Hampshire was fourth across the finish line, followed by Atlantic Canada’s two-time and reigning Super Late Model champion, Cole Butcher of Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.  Scott Robbins of Dixfield, Jeff White of Monmouth, Ryan Deane of Winterport, Scott McDaniel of Livermore and Manchester’s Reid Lanpher filled out the top ten.

 

Billy Childs, Jr. didn’t lead every lap of the Allen’s Coffee Flavored Brandy Street Stock main event, but no one ever got all of the way by the 2018 champion in the 30-lap race and the Leeds driver scored his first triumph of this season.

 

Matt Dufault of Turner, the division’s defending champion and current points leader, put on a show in the outside groove, challenging Childs before earning runner-up spoils.  David Whittier, who led a couple of laps while battling Childs from the outside groove, was the third-place finisher.  Rick Spaulding of Lisbon, the previous week’s winner, charged from the back of the pack to finish fourth.  Oxford’s Skip Stanley rounded out the top five.

 

Defending Bandit division champion Dustin Salley of Mechanic Falls continued to dominate in Budweiser Championship Series four-cylinder competition, winning his fifth race this season in his third different winning ride. Rookie Alex Mowatt of Norway was the best of the rest, followed by Chad Wills of Oxford, Turner’s Tyler Green and The Tornado, Travis Verrill of South Paris.

 

Brady Childs of Leeds raced to his fifth victory of the year in Rookie class competition to remain atop the championship standings.  Owen Stuart of Naples was forced to settle for runner-up honors, snapping a two-race winning streak.  Norway’s Maddie Herrick earned third-place hardware, ahead of Minot’s Derek Cook and Jeremy Turner of Norway.

 

Budweiser Championship Series competitors get a weekend off as Christmas In July takes center stage on Friday night, July 19 (with a Saturday, July 20 rain date) with the Motor Mayhem endure crowd joined by Oxford Acceleration Series racers.  Post time is 6:00 p.m.  The Budweiser Championship Series resumes on Saturday, July 27 at 7:00 p.m. , with PASS Mods added to the five weekly classes, topped by the Super Late Models.  For more information visit oxfordplains.com or call (207) 539-8865.

WIDE WORLD OF SPORTS OLD PROMO "THE THRILL OF VICTORY, THE AGONY OF DEFEAT" FITS THE ACTION AT THE HILL SPEEDWAY ON FRIDAY NIGHT.

    Our Place Tavern in Monroeton, Pa. provided the sponsorship and bicycle givaways on what was to be one of the most competitive nights of the season at The Hill Speedway Friday. The qualifying events were filled with side by side racing and last lap passes for the win, setting the stage for a great show for the fans in the feature events.

    The Rear Wheel Drive Four Cylinder Division was the first 20 lap feature to hit the track and the point standings were part of the night's focus. Waverly's Joe Lane and Troy speedster Larry Colton were tied for the points lead going into the the night's events, with Scott Bump of Monroeton only one point back in third. The trio were prepped for action as Bump started on the front row, with Lane and Colton in the second and third rows at the green flag. Lane made an outside move in turn one, with the momentum putting him solidly in command at the end of lap one. Bump followed closely in second, but immediately had to deal with challenges from Colton and Alan Blackwell. Colton grabbed the second spot on lap five, but Lane had pulled out to a solid lead, and Colton needed to run some perfect laps to close the gap. The veteran slowly closed the gap, but only by small increments on each trip around the track. With no caution flags to bunch the field, Colton was unable to close in on the leader to challenge and had to settle for second at the finish. Bump and Blackwell battled for the third spot throughout the event, with Bump prevailing in third. Newcomer Anton Smith drove a steady race to round out the top five.

    New Albany pilot Dalton Maynard was looking for his second feature win of the season as he brought the Snell Metalfab Crate Sportsman field to green, and set the pace for the first four laps. Rich Powell was working the outside lane and slipped past to lead lap five, as last week's feature winner, Grant Hilfiger, put the pressure on Maynard for second. Hilfiger, who had put his pit crew to the test after sustaining damage in a qualifying race incident, powered into the runnerup spot on lap six, and set his sights on Powell. Mike Nagel, who also had problems in his heat race, joined the lead group and challenged Maynard for the third spot.  As Hilfiger tried every lane, and ran inches off Powell's rear bumper, Nagel made an inside move off turn four work to take third just past the halfway point. Powell was picture perfect through the closing laps and recorded his first feature win of the season, over Hilfiger, Nagel and Maynard in that order. Randy Fox finished fifth.

     Harry Ely and defending Champion Gary Lamphere brought the Modified feature to the go signal with Lamphere leading the class forthe first three laps. Two time feature winner Jack Lamphere moved to the lead on the fourth circuit, as Brad Sites, Ray McClure, and Mark Griffin made it a five car lead group. Gary dropped from contention with a quick pit stop on lap five, as Keith Lamphere moved to fourth around Griffin. Griffin made an inside move to retake the position three laps later, with Jake Maynard following him into the top five. As Jack Lamphere continued to set the pace, with Brad Sites and McClure debating second, the battle for fourth heated up. Eddie Sites, who had started ninth, joined the lead group and moved into fifth as the field came around four the five to go signal. With two laps remaining, he slipped past Grifffin to take over fourth. At the checkered flag it was Jack Lamphere picking up his third win on the season followed by Brad Sites, McClure, Eddie Sites and Griffin.

The Front Wheel Drive Four Cylinder Division kept the fans on the edge of their seats for the entire 20 laps. Trevor Williams, Mike Ely, Devon Bailey, Burt Maynard, and Adam Delgrosso ran inches apart in the lead group, with Williams being scored the leader for the first four laps. Bailey took over the top spot, as Matt Browning joined the group,  making it six cars battling for the lead. Delgrosso broke on lap 7, but on the restart it was still a tight five car battle for the win. Maynard won a three wide debate for second, and Browning moved to third as the field crossed the halfway mark. Maynard and Browning kept the pressure on, but Bailey perservered to record his second win of the season. Browning got by Maynard to take second, as Williams won the battle for fourth over Ely.

    Buck Mills Jr. had never seen The Hill Speedway before Friday night, but towed nearly three hours to "try something new". Starting eighth in the Pure Stock feature, he took over the lead from Les Smith on the fourth lap. Last week's feature winner Mike Chilson snagged the second spot on lap six, and began to pressure the leader, as Smith, Dalton Decker, Kevin Garland, and Chris Woodard engaged in a four car debate for third. The four ended up in a four car accident on turn four as the field approached the halfway mark, moving Duane Bailey, Greg Crooker, and Joe Giardina into the top five. Chilson took the lead from Mills, as Woodard and Smith made their way back to the front, with Woodard taking fourth with six laps  to go, and powering into third on the next lap. Smith and Bailey battled over fifth just a few inches off Crooker's back bumper. On the final lap, Woodard made a move to the inside off turn two, and began to make a run on second place, but Chilson suddenly slowed on the back straight, dropping to the inside lane, forcing Woodard to take evasive action, and Mills cruised through the final two turns to take the victory. Second through fifth went to Woodard, Crooker, Smith, and Bailey.

     Rich Sharpsteen and Donny Burgess paced the final feature of the night to the green flag as the Street Stocks provided their brand of entertainment. Bobby Maynard battled Doug Stack Jr. for the second spot early in the event, with Stack taking the position on the third circuit. Burgess slipped by Maynard for third a lap later, as Sharpsteen kept control of the lead. Three time feature winner Earl Zimmer was on the move from his seventh place starting spot, joining the top five on lap 5, moving to fourth two laps later, and taking over second on lap 8. He overpowered Sharpsteen on the ninth circuit to take the lead. Sharpsteen and Stack Jr. dropped from contention at the midpoint, with J.T. McKernan,  Dustin Maynard, Doug Stack Sr., and Mike Koser filling in the top five. McKernan and Maynard kept the pressure on throughout the remainder, but Zimmer was able to hold on for his fourth win of the season. McKernan, Maynard, Doug Stack Sr., and Koser filled out the top five.

“Confident Zack Curren Hold Off Zane Zeiner for Chemung’s Sunoco Modified Win”
by Carol Houssock”
 
(Chemung, NY) Driver confidence and good car control were key words at Chemung Speedrome on Friday night. Mid-Season Championship races, awarding double points, found many repeat winners in the Midstate Basement Authorities victory lane. Only Derrick Vogler earned a career-first win, while the others backed up earlier wins in the double points-paying features. Winners included Zack Curren (Sunoco Modifieds), Mike Nichols (Super Stocks), Greg Moldt (4 Cylinders), Kyle Youngs (INEX Legends), Josh Duke (Bandolero Outlaw) and Derrick Vogler (Bandolero Bandit).
 
Confidence is a powerful tool, as demonstrated in the 40-lap Sunoco Modified feature. “I was confident after last week, figured we had a shot at it, and here we are,” Zack Curren said after climbing from his car in victory lane for the second consecutive time.
 
Earlier in the evening Tim Gullo and Zane Zeiner won the two heats that set the field for the feature. Getting it going was tough as the front row starters, Pat Judson and Gullo, got tangled and others stopped to avoid contact. Judson and Dave Bellis were done but the restart had Zeiner and Curren moving up to the front row. Curren took the lead.
 
As the field worked the second lap, sparks flew when John Wilber and Charlie Sharpsteen touched. Sharpsteen was up against the wall, while Wilber took evasive action and headed down the turn one access road. Both were able to continue.
 
Curren held off Zeiner on the restart but Zeiner had yet another opportunity when Keith Youngs and Judson got together on the front stretch, ending the race for both drivers. Once again Curren kept Zeiner at bay and started to build up a lead when point leader Zack Knowlden caught and tried to overtake Zeiner. Their battle was classic. Knowlden led lap 33, Zeiner led 34. So it went, as Curren got further away from their battle for second.
 
The final lap was a dandy. Curren took the checkered flag and Knowlden nipped Zeiner for second. Bryan Sherwood and Gullo rounded out the top five.
 
“Zane is one of the best there is and to hold him off was huge,” Curren told the crowd. “We did change the car a little from last week even though most people don’t think we did. And we may make a few more changes this week.”
 
When pole-sitter Brian DeMark went high in turn two it handed the lead to Jesse Hurley on the opening lap of the Super Stock feature. Over the course of the 25-lap feature the caution flag came out three times. Hurley led until Mike Nichols got the better of him.
 
One of two significant moments came while working lap 12. DeMark spun in turn two, but Jason Duke’s car went up in smoke just after the yellow waved. Duke was done for the night. Racing resumed, and Nichols continued atop the leaderboard.
 
The other significant moment came when Dennis Beardslee and Derrick Tarbox got together coming off turn four. The damage was severe for Beardslee but Tarbox was able to continue.
 
Over the final four laps Nichols had to hold off Nick Robinson, who had been lurking for most of the race. When it was over Nichols had earned his second win this season. Heat winner Robinson held on to the point lead with his second-place finish, followed to the stripe by Frank Chapman, Hurley and Garrett Zacharias.  “The car was getting tight on me. I was a little worried, but it worked out ok,” Nichols stated.
 
In 4 Cylinder action, Greg Moldt’s car was hooked up from the moment he arrived at the track. He won his heat and started the 20-lap feature from the outside of the front row. He wasted no time taking the lead, with Joey Bevacqua in pursuit. The caution came when Brett Bourdette spun between turns three and four. On the restart lap Monica Green and DJ Shaw tangled in turn four. The race went red for Green, whose wrist got injured when it got stuck in the steering wheel. She was done for the night, but Shaw was not. He restarted last and worked the traffic until he was running fourth. As the laps clicked off, Moldt’s lead got bigger and bigger. Finally, when lap 20 clicked off, he took the checkered flag for his second win of the year. Bevacqua finished second, with Kevin May, Shaw and Ricky Lane all in the top five. “The car was tight then it got loose so I may have something coming apart, but I’m so happy my daughter was here to see Daddy win” Moldt said.
 
In the INEX Legends division Kyle Youngs picked up his third win of the season. This time he had to get past both Chuck Lohmeyer and Gary Ham to get the job done. The 20-lap race went caution-free and it was on lap number four when Youngs, in car number four, took the lead. Once in front he built a nice lead over heat winner Ham and early leader Chuck Lohmeyer. The second half of the race saw James Anderson running in fourth in a tight group. When this one was over Youngs parked in victory lane. “The car is hooked up, it’s fast. But so are Gary and Chuck,” he said. They finished second and third, followed by Jody Buckley and Anderson.
 
Josh Duke won the Carpenter’s Karts INEX Bandolero heat and started the 10-lap feature third. Jeffrey Noe led the opening lap before losing the top spot to Duke. Noe’s spin in turn four brought out the caution.  On the restart fans witnessed some great moves by Derrick Vogler as he missed the trouble that developed between Noe and Chase Sinsabaugh.  Over the final six laps Duke pulled away while Vogler held on to second.  Duke scored the overall win, followed by first-time winner Vogler in the Bandit class. “I saw they were starting to wreck on the inside, so I went to the outside and was lucky to get through,” Vogler said of the restart incident.

Curtis Gerry dominant in PASS Super Late Model Open 100 at Oxford Plains Speedway

Dave Farrington earns guaranteed starting spot in rich Oxford 250 on August 25

 

Oxford, Maine – Waterboro, Maine’s Curtis Gerry continued to be the man to beat in Super Late Model competition at Oxford Plains Speedway, driving to another impressive victory in Sunday night’s PASS Open 100-lap main event.

 

Gerry, a former Oxford 250 winner who leads the standings in the track’s Budweiser Championship Series Super Late Models in his first season as a regular competitor, needed only thirteen laps to work his way into the race lead, spending much of that time behind an entertaining, side-by-side lead battle between Dixfield, Maine’s Ryan Robbins and Eddie MacDonald of Rowley, Massachusetts.

 

MacDonald got out front for a few laps but Gerry pounced after patiently waiting for his opportunity to get to the front.  From there he managed to maintain a comfortable advantage and made no mistakes on restarts to keep his rivals at bay in dominant fashion.

 

Late in the race the racer to watch was Dave Farrington of Jay, who used the outside groove to drive around several contenders, getting past MacDonald in the closing stages of the race to earn runner-up honors and a guaranteed starting position in the 46th Annual Oxford 250, scheduled for Sunday, August 25.

 

MacDonald, a winner in his most recent PASS Super Late Model start at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, celebrated his birthday with the third-place trophy and a stack of new notes as he and his crew chief, Maine native Rollie Lachance, chase the big 250 prize.

 

Ryan Robbins, who battled for the lead with MacDonald, was fourth across the line.  That was enough to score the ‘half provisional’ which does assure him of a spot in the big 250.  Defending PASS North Super Late Model champion DJ Shaw was the fifth-place finisher.

 

Josh Childs of Otisfield, Maine was sixth in his first start of the season at OPS, and he’ll be in the 250 on the ‘quarter provisional.’.   Scott Robbins, Evan Hallstrom, Ryan Kuhn and Saturday night’s 100-lap winner, Shawn Martin, rounded out the top ten.

 

Mike Carignan of Lebanon earned his first-ever PASS Mods victory in caution-plagued, 40-lap main event.  All of the carnage was behind Carignan, coming off a podium finish,  as he led every lap en route to victory lane.

 

Gray’s Tyler King was the runner-up, racing from sixth starting position into contention for the win in just his third start in the class.  But King couldn’t mount a serious challenge to Carnignan.  Spencer Morse of Waterford, a winner in the previous OPS PASS Mods race, ended up with third-place hardware after all was said and done.  Jariet Harrison of Freeport and Lovell’s Kate Re rounded out the top five.

 

Jordan Russell scored the biggest victory of his racing career, winning the 50-lap Honey Badger Street Stock Series main event.  It was the second win of the season and second career Street Stock victory for the Norway driver.

 

Russell started sixth and until almost the halfway point it looked like he’d be chasing polesitter Kyle Hewins from his sixth starting spot.  But Hewins had his mount quit beneath him, and Russell soon capitalized upon the opportunity, outrunning  an equally-quick Shawn Knight of South Paris to the checkered flag.

 

Knight earned runner-up honors, grabbing his second OPS Street Stock trophy of the weekend after winning the two previous main events in the class.  Kenny Harrison of Durham, who won the opening round of the Honey Badger Series, was third across the finish line.  Matt Dufault of Turner was the fourth-place finisher, ahead of Hollis racer Gary Babineau, who started the race from last position.

 

Rookie competitor Alex Mowatt raced to his second win of the season in the 25-lap Bandit Triple Crown Series for the entry-level, four-cylinder class.  Mowatt started on the front row and easily set the pace from the green flag’s appearance to the display of the checkered square.

 

Chad Wills of Oxford, a winner the previous night at OPS, held off defending division champ Dustin Salley of Mechanic Falls for runner-up honors.  Travis Verrill, the tornado from South Paris, continued his best-ever season with a fourth-place run.  Jay’s Dean Jordan rounded out the top five.

 

The next event for the Pro All Stars Series Super Late Models is this Sunday evening, July 14 at Oxford Plains Speedway with PASS Mods and the Honey Badger Street Stock Series back in action.  Post time is 6:00 p.m..  For more information visit oxfordplains.com, proallstarsseries.com or call (207) 539-8865 for more information.

Shawn Martin triumphant in 100-lap Super Late Model race at Oxford Plains Speedway

First win of the season nets guaranteed Oxford 250 starting spot for former track champ

 

Oxford, ME -- Shawn Martin of Turner won his first Super Late Model main event of the season and also earned a guaranteed starting spot in the 46th Annual Oxford 250 in the 100-lap Budweiser Championship Series Super Late Model headline event at Oxford Plains Speedway Saturday night.

 

Martin, twice a champion in the Late Model class at OPS, started the race from seventh position and, in the biggest and most-talented field of the season, methodically worked his way into contention, setting up a tremendous battle for the lead with Kelly Moore, the NASCAR Busch North Series all-time great from Scarborough.

 

Martin prevailed and Moore stayed fast but later spun while battling for second spot when he may have jumped the curbing on the inside of the racetrack.  DJ Shaw, the reigning Pro All Stars Series North champion, got to second spot but could not mount a serious challenge to Martin in the closing laps.

 

Manchester’s Reid Lanpher made a late charge to third spot after starting 11th.  Curtis Gerry got a fourth-place finish and actually extended his championship points lead in the process.  Current PASS Super Late Model National Champion Derek Grifith of Hudson, New Hampshire rounded out the top five.

 

Lisbon’s Rick Spaulding nailed down his first victory of the year in the 30-lap Allen’s Coffee Flavored Brandy Street Stock main event.  Spaulding led all the way in the race but three-time winner Kurt Hewins of Leeds made him earn the win on each and every lap before finishing a close second.

 

Shawn Knight of South Paris, who entered the night on a two-race winning streak, rebounded from a mid-race altercation to claim a third-place finish.  Mark Turner of Norway crossed the finish line in fourth position, followed by defending Street Stock champion Matt Dufault of Turner, who remains on top of the division rankings.

 

Dale Lawrence of Minot and hometown Oxford racer Kyle Glover both won 15-lap races for the Figure 8 class.  Lawrence outran Glover and Greg Durgin of South Paris in the first main event.  Lawrence chased Glover under the checkered flag in the nightcap, with Harrison’s Gary Davis earning third-place hardware.

 

Owen Stuart won for the fifth time this year in one of the season’s wildest Rookie division events.  Brady Childs of Leeds remained atop the points chase with a runner-up finish.  Jeremy Turner of Norway had his best run of the year with a third-place finish in front of Norway’s Maddy Herrick and Sophie Green of South Paris.

 

Jesse Michaud of Caribou outran the Wicked Good Hobby racers ina  15-lap race aboard  a Russ Nutting 1937 Plymouth-bodied car.  Bub Dow of West Paris and Casco’s Rebecca Symonds also earned trophies in the vintage racing class.

 

A very busy July schedule finds Oxford Plains Speedway back in action on Sunday, July 7 at 5:00 p.m., with a 100-lap Pro All Stars Series Super Late Model race topping the card. PASS Mods, Street Stocks and Bandits will also see action.  The Budweiser Championship Series resumes on Saturday, July 13 at 7:00 p.m. , the first half of yet another weekend doubleheader, with the Pro All Stars Series Super Late Models going 150 laps to headline a special 6:00 p.m. Sunday racing program.  For more information visit oxfordplains.com or call (207) 539-8865.

 Nearly 75 cars signed into the pits Friday night and treated a great group of race fans to an exciting night of stock car racing at The Hill. "The Thrill on the Hill" was highlighted by a great professional fireworks show, provided by the night's sponsor, Space Mountain Fireworks located on SR 414, just down the road from the track. Space Mountain also gave away two girls and two boys bicycles from drawings held during feature Victory Lane ceremonies.
     Close racing during the qualifying races were a predictor of an exciting set of Independance Day features in all divisions

     The Snell Metalfab Sportsman division was first out of the gate, with Rome, PA's Rich Powell and Chemung's Rich Talada bringing the field to green. Talada led the way for the first three circuits, then Grant Hilfiger took command. Talada and Powell debated second with Marc Benson in tow, but Mike Nagel was on the move,  taking fourth spot on lap four and moving to third on the fifth lap. Nagel caught Talada and battled for the second spot for the next few laps, until a lap car spun and collected him. On the ensuing yellow, Nagel made a quick pit stop, and returned to the rear of the field as the green flag flew. Hilfiger maintained the lead, with Talada just a few car lengths back with Powell, Benson, and Randy Fox putting on a great battle for third. Nagel made his way back to fourth in the closing laps, but with two to go, he suddenly slowed and pulled to the infield. Hilfiger cruised in for the victory, Talada was second, Powell held for third, with Fox fourth and Benson fifth.
Hilfiger and Nagel won heat races.

     The Modifieds were up next, with J.W. Lamphere and Ray McClure on the front row. J.W. set the pace for the opening laps, but defending champ Gary Lamphere was on a mission, and grabbed the top spot on the third lap, with Jake Maynard following him through to take second. The pair began to distance themselves from the rest of the pack, while keeping the fans on the edge of their seats with a close battle for the lead. Maynard took command just past the halfway point, and fought off every challenge through to the checkered flag.
Lamphere slipped back to fourth, as Logan Terry kept the pressure on Maynard, ending up a solid second. Keith Lamphere ran in the top five all race long, and recorded third at the finish. Eddie Sites was once again the man to watch as he started tenth, got caught up in an accident and went to the back,  and then powered his way back into the top five in the closing laps, challeging for third, but settling for fourth at the checkered flag. Gary Lamphere was fifth.
Heat wins went to Jack Lamphere, and Keith Lamphere .

     Matt Browning grabbed the lead at the start of the Front Wheel Drive feature and fought off numerous challenges for 20 laps to record the win. Devon Bailey, Adam Delgrosso, and Matt Mckernan provided the pressure, but none could overcome Browning. Delgrosso was the primary challenger, but had to settle for second. Third through fifth were Bailey, McKernan, and John Maynard.  A heart stopping moment occurred on the twelfth lap when a fuel line ruptured on the Rick Sinsabaugh machine and the entire rear of the car erupted in flames. Sinsabaugh steered to the edge of the infield, the flagging crew quickly assisted him in exitting the car, and the fire crew (North Towanda VFD) went to work. It was a tough attack, as the rear section was hot enough that the leaking fuel reignited a few times through the extinguishment attempt, but an exemplary effort buy the crew was successful in bringing things under control within minutes. There were no injuries. 
Heats were won by McKernan and Browning.

     The growing Pure Stock division started eleven cars, with Chris Woodard setting the pace for the first seven laps, with Mike Chilson hot on his heals. Chilson seized an opening on the eighth lap, and powered to the lead with Woodard now the chaser. Meanwhile, Kevin Garland , Les Smith and Dalton Decker put on a spirited debate for third. Woodard was unable to regain tthe lead, and followed Chilson across the finish line. Garland crossed third, Smith was fourth, and Decker fifth.
Chilson and Woodard won Heats.

     Abe Romanick led the first three laps of the Street Stock main, until Dustin Maynard took over the top spot. The pair put on a great battle at the front for the next handful of laps, when Doug Stack Jr. made a power move and took over the runnerup spot. The trio were the show for the next few circuits, running inches apart and challenging for the lead, but everytime they came back around to the scoring line, Maynard got there first. Earl Zimmer and Mike Koser raced each other so hard for the fourth spot that by the halfway signal, they had caught the leaders, making it a five car group at the front. Zimmer got around Romanick for third and searched high and low for an advantage over Stack, pulling alongside a few times, but never able to make the pass, as Stack did the same with Maynard. Romanick seemed to fade a bit over the final three laps and dropped back through the field. Final top five at the finish, Maynard, Stack Jr., Zimmer, Koser, Doug Stack Sr.
Heat wins to Dan Force, Doug Stack Jr., Dustin Maynard.
     
     Larry Colton and Scott Bump debated the lead the first four laps of the Rear Wheel Drive Four Cylinders when Joe Lane made the pair a trio by slipping into second. Two laps later, Lane powered into the lead. On the eleventh lap, a lap car spun directly in front of the leaders, who became involved in the accident, relegating them to the rear for the restart. Bump inherited the lead, with Alan Blackwell a close second. Blackwell put the pressure on, but three laps later, the pair made contact, spinning Bump to a stop in turn four. Both restarted from the rear, with Colton, who, like Lane, had worked back into the lead pack, inheriting the top two spots. Lane made numerous challenges on Colto during the closing laps, but had to settle for second at the checker. Bump and Blackwell came back to the front and finished third and fourth, with Robert Decker rounding out the top five.
Lane won the lone heat race.
