JON KELLER SCORES HUGE UPSET VICTORY IN THIRD ANNUAL EAST COAST INDOOR DIRT NATIONALS 600 SPRINT FEATURE SATURDAY NIGHT IN TRENTON’S CURE INSURANCE ARENA;KENNY MILLER III, BILLY PAUCH, JR. SECOND AND THIRD IN WILD COME-FROM-BEHIND FINISH

 

TRENTON, NJ February 22,2020 . . . Bridgeport Speedway Micro Sprint regular Jon Keller of Salem, NJ raced to a thrilling victory Saturday night in the East Coast Indoor Dirt Nationals 600 Sprint race held inside Cure Insurance Arena in Trenton, NJ. The race was a 50-lap event and paid $5,000 to win.

“I can’t believe I even made it into the A-Main all the way from the E-Main let alone win the race,” Keller, 33, said. “I got run into the wall during the feature and rode along it and flipped in Saturday afternoon practice. On Friday, I got black flagged for spinning out three times in my heat and that put me in the back of the E-Main,” Keller related.

“I was discouraged enough after Friday that I actually went home.  But as the crew told me the next morning, we’ve come all this way, now’s not the time to give up. They were right, and here we are.”

Keller started the feature dead last, from the thirteenth row, sidestepped several multi-car crashes, and took the lead with two laps to go, bringing Kenny Miller, III, who had started from the twelfth row, with him.

Billy Pauch, Jr., finished third. He led the first ten laps, then was involved in a six-car crash that affected several other front runners including Eddie Strada and Tim Buckwalter. All restarted, but at the back of the field.

Brenden Bright picked up the lead after the big tangle with the remarkable run of Keller first becoming apparent when he moved into the top three on lap 20.

Erick Rudolph, defending race winner, took the lead with 11 laps left as Bright faded. Keller grabbed second, closed on Rudolph and then, on the final restart of the race, shot by Rudolph on the high side of the multi-groove course to complete his shocking ride.

Miller was second, Pauch third, Rudolph fourth and Strada fifth.

“I don’t believe any of this. Winning this race against these top guys from the back of the field,” Keller said. “I don’t belong here, but here I am.”

Larry Wight, who worked his way through from the D Main into the A was sixth after running as high as third at one point. Kyle Spence, Mike Bednar, Bright and Jesse Maurer completed the top ten.

Two B Mains, from which the top six transferred to the A Main, were won by Joey Amantea and Pat Bealer.

C Main race winners were Brandon Pavel and Kyle Spence. Sammy Martz, Jr. and James Morris captured the pair of D Mains. Mike Mahaney and Matt Warner won the two E Mains.

The Indoor Auto Racing Series Fueled By VP Race Fuels concludes its 2020 season with the final ‘Concrete Series’ event at the New York State Fairgrounds Expo Center in Syracuse, NY on March 13-14, 2020 at which time the Series 2020 champion will be crowned.

East Coast Indoor Dirt Nationals Feature Finish (50 Laps): 1. Jon Keller, 2. Kenny Miller III, 3. Billy Pauch Jr., 4. Erick Rudolph, 5. Eddie Strada, 6. Larry Wight, 7. Kyle Spence, 8.

« on: February 20, 2020, 02:52:38 PM »
You're confused? Holy crap, I figured I go and settle it all by visiting the ROC website...BIG MISTAKE.

As you all know, ROC is doing the Spencer Speedway stuff and has a section on their website for them.

I can confirm the ROC schedule and the Spencer schedule don't match up.

Somebody better tell the ROC that MYRACEPASS has this all jacked up.... ;D

DO THE DOUBLE THIS WEEKEND; TRENTON INDOOR DIRT NATIONALS AT NIGHT (FRIDAY AND SATURDAY), LINCOLN’S OUTDOOR OPENER SATURDAY AFTERNOON. SPECIAL DISCOUNT AVAILABLE

TRENTON, NJ February 18, 2020 . . . Race fans eager to see live auto racing this weekend can enjoy both outstanding indoor and outdoor dirt racing.

On Friday and Saturday night the East Coast Dirt Nationals will be held on a banked clay oval inside the CURE Insurance Arena in Trenton, N.J. Sandwiched in between is the northeast outdoor opener, the Icebreaker, for 410 Sprints at the Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa.

The estimated travel distance between the two events is a mere 2 1/2 hours and schedules allow eager fans to do both. As a bonus for doing so, fans who bring their Lincoln Speedway ticket stubs from Saturday afternoon’s event to the Trenton box office will receive $5 off the price of a ticket!

The racing action in Trenton begins on Friday night at 7 pm when 90 plus 600cc wingless Sprints will compete in ten heat races followed by four 20 lap A-Main qualifiers that set the line-ups for Saturday’s events.

On Saturday the grandstand gates open at 12 noon at the Lincoln Speedway with racing slated for 2pm. The one division program for 410 Sprint Cars includes four to six qualifying races followed by the 30 lap, $4,000 to Icebreaker. It is expected to be completed prior to 4 pm to avoid expected night time falling temperatures.

Fans can then head east to Trenton where the first of 10 qualifying races begins at 6:00 with two F-Mains advancing four cars in each to twin E-Mains that follow. When these four qualifiers are completed, an intermission is scheduled.

Twin D, C and B-Mains will follow each qualifying the top finishers forward in hopes of making the $5,000 to win 50 lap A-Main event. It is expected that the 24 car field will take the green around 9 pm.

If needed, Lincoln management has set a rain date for Saturday’s event for Sunday at 2 pm.

'Doing The Double' is considered by many race fans as the ultimate achievement, a feat that has become more difficult in recent years with the addition of more classes and slower paced shows at many tracks. Both the events in Trenton and Lincoln are one-division programs noted for moving along a show quickly.

For information on the two programs go to www.indoorautoracing.com or www.lincolnspeedway.com

BILLY PAUCH, JR. EAGER TO AVENGE TOUGH LOSS TO ERICK RUDOLPH IN 2018 EAST COAST DIRT NATIONALS, WILL DRIVE SAME LAMAR SCHAFFER MICRO ON FEB.21-22 IN SEARCH OF REDEMPTION

 TRENTON, NJ February 16, 2020 . . . By any measure, Billy Pauch, Jr. had a very successful 2019 racing season, earning the New Egypt Speedway Modified track championship and running well at both Big Diamond and Kutztown on a weekly basis. But Pauch admits that one race he feels he should have won, the 2018 East Coast Dirt Nationals, bothers him over a year later.

 The third annual ‘Indoor Dirt Nationals’ returns to CURE Insurance Arena in Trenton, NJ, on February 21–22 featuring nearly 100 wingless 600cc sprints on the indoor banked, clay oval.

 “We ran a close second to Erick (Rudolph). He was hugging the bottom and I was trying to make something happen on the top. I got to him but by the time I did, the top of the track had changed.

 “I didn’t want to dump him which was the only way I was going to pass him,” Pauch said. “It was a tough loss. You hate to let a race you feel you should have won get away.”

 Also disappointing for the third-generation driver was the 2017 Nationals, a race where Pauch was again a contender but was spun from behind in the feature, breaking his car’s steering in the process, ending his race.

Pauch heads into Cure Insurance Arena on February 21-22, behind the wheel of the same car he has driven in the past two races, the No. 91S owned by Pennsylvanian Lamar Schaffer.  Schaffer also builds engines for his car and customers.

 “I can kind of tell when I’m racing against one of Lamar’s customers,” Pauch laughed. “He’s one of the more popular builders and his stuff is reliable and fast.”

 Pauch said that the track surface was different the second year from the first. “The first year it was a little rough and wide, last year it got slick. It needed more of a top. It is great clay.”

Though many drivers run Micros in their youth, then progress to full size Modifieds or Sprints, Pauch, 32, traveled a different route.

 Pauch has been Schaffer’s ‘house car’ driver for eight years, starting at Kutztown when the owner, who was familiar with Pauch’s SpeedSTR exploits, offered him a ride in his Micro. Since that time, Pauch has run a double show every night at Kutztown between SpeedSTRs and Micros.

 Pauch has already competed in 2020, running the three race All Tech Speedway Sunshine State Series under the Short Track Super Series banner.

 “I would have liked to have stayed for the Volusia Super DIRT Series races, but this is a hectic time of the year for me,” Pauch admitted. He is an accountant by trade and tax season is right around the corner!

 Whitey Kidd, III won the 2017 inaugural running of the East Coast Dirt Nationals while Erick Rudolph drove Tommy Fraschetta’s car to a win in the second running in December of 2018. This year, the event was moved away from the Christmas holidays to the weekend after the Daytona 500.

 Pauch, Jr.’s entry is among a huge field expected for the third annual East Coast Dirt Nationals. The number of entries accepted will be 100, as dictated by building space constraints for the two-day event.

 Teams will arrive in Trenton on Thursday for closed door practice on the track which again be built with rich tacky black dustless clay. On Friday, by the luck of a blind draw, the field will be split into 10 heat races. Those who start in the back will benefit by points given for each car passed.

 The top 60 in heat race points are then divided into four A-Main qualifiers of which the top three transfer directly to Saturday’s 50 lap A-Main event paying $5,000 to the winner.

On Saturday all non-qualified drivers are split into qualifying races by their results on Friday. Each of these events, starting with twin letter F-Mains transfer four to the next main until two B-Mains are reached on the scheduled. In the final qualifiers, the top six transfer to the A-Main which will start 24 cars.

Tickets are currently available in a range of different prices at www.indoorautoracing.com or at the venue box office in advance or the day of the events.

ANTHONY NOCELLA, NEW SMYRNA WORLD SERIES TOUR MODIFIED STAR, ENTERS TRENTON EAST COAST DIRT NATIONALS FEB. 21-22

 TRENTON, NJ February 14, 2020 . . . The hottest driver in Florida during Speedweeks right now, Woburn, Mass., Asphalt Modified driver Anthony Nocella, winner of two of the first three asphalt Modified features at New Smyrna (FL) Speedway this past week, has filed an entry for the third annual East Coast Dirt Nationals being run inside the CURE Insurance Arena in Trenton, NJ, on February 21–22.

Nocella’s entry is among nearly 100 wingless 600cc sprints on the indoor banked, clay oval.

The 27-year old New Englander was the man to beat at this year’s week-long World Series Of Auto Racing in Florida, winning the Monday opener, leading most of the Tuesday race before settling for third, then winning the John Blewett, III Memorial 76-lap race Wednesday in a thrilling photo finish.

 “I’ve won some big races, but this is definitely big, coming down here for just the second year and winning. Beating the competition here is pretty neat, that’s for sure. Some of these guys I never beat before,” shared Nocella.

 His win in the Blewett Memorial featured a side by side battle with Matt Hirschman that lasted several laps and ended in a finish that many felt was too close to call. Nocella got the nod from officials.

 Though Nocella’s more recent racing endeavors have consisted of racing Modifieds on pavement, he has considerable background racing 600 Micro Sprints on dirt.

 “I started in karts and went to Micro Sprints. I ran them for a while and won a couple of championships at Whip City Speedway before I went to NEMA Midgets. The last time I drove a Micro Sprint on dirt was probably ten years ago.

 “Rich Crooker from New Hampshire owns the car. He called me up and asked if I would be interested. I said yes, got my guys together, and entered the race. The car hasn’t been run in a while but it’s a good piece. Not very old, not the very newest. If we all do our job and everything aligns, we can do well,” Nocella expressed.

Much like the competition in Florida, the field in Trenton will be a challenge for Nocella, consisting of Micro Sprint regulars and stars from a variety of forms of racing.

Whitey Kidd, III won the 2017 inaugural running of the East Coast Dirt Nationals for the Micro Sprint regulars, while Dirt Modified and Indoor Racing standout Erick Rudolph drove Tommy Fraschetta’s car to a win in the second running in December of 2018. 

 Teams will arrive in Trenton on Thursday for closed door practice on the track which again be built with rich tacky black dustless clay.   On Friday, by the luck of a blind draw, the field will be split into 10 heat races. Those who start in the back will benefit by points given for each car passed.

 The top 60 in heat race points are then divided into four A-Main qualifiers of which the top three transfer directly to Saturday’s 40 lap A-Main event paying $5,000 to the winner.

 On Saturday all non-qualified drivers are split into qualifying races by their results on Friday. Each of these events, starting with twin letter F-Mains transfer four to the next main until two B-Mains are reached on the scheduled. In the final qualifiers, the top six transfer to the A-Main which will start 24 cars.

Tickets are currently available in a range of different prices at www.indoorautoracing.com or at the venue box office in advance or the day of the events.

TEENAGE TWO TITLE WINNING KENNY MILLER,III READY TO TAKE ON THE WORLD IN EAST COAST DIRT NATIONALS TRENTON INDOOR RACES FEB. 21-22

TRENTON, NJ February 12. 2020 . . . Kenny Miller, III, at 19 years of age, will be charging into Cure Insurance Arena in Trenton, NJ for the third annual East Coast Indoor Dirt Nationals over the weekend of February 21-22 with one thought in mind: outrun the field of big name invaders and his fellow 600cc Sprint regulars to take home the top prize.

Miller, Morgantown, PA, has been a winner at every step of his young career. A USAC .25 National Champion in Quarter-Midgets, a 270cc Micro Sprint winner, an ARDC midget Rookie of the Year, and a 600cc Sprint feature winner. Even with all of that on his resume, 2019 was a break-out season for the fourth-generation racer.

Racing his family owned No. 23m, as he has for his entire career, the college sophomore recorded nine triumphs - the most he's ever scored in one season of 600 Sprint competition.

More significantly, Miller topped the standings in wingless 600 competition at Pa.’s Greenwood Valley Action Track and at Championship Energy Action Track USA on the Kutztown Fairgrounds.

All of that success has him pumped up and ready for battle in the upcoming East Coast Indoor Dirt Nationals against many top name invaders from other racing divisions.

This will be Miller's third start in the event held previously in December of 2017. The first two years he was still in high school and a member of the school's varsity basketball team. He told the coach that he needed to attend a family wedding, out of state, so that he could be excused from practice to compete in the very first East Coast Indoor Dirt Nationals.

Miller made it a memorable start, too, by finishing fourth in the second B-Main to qualify for the 40-lap feature. Miller then kept his nose clean and drove from 20th starting position to finish a nifty tenth on the tiny but ultra-competitive clay oval.

In the second running of the event, held in December of 2018, Miller was a freshman at Millersville University and on his holiday break from school. He was grouped into the Night Two field and won his heat race. Kenny finished third in his Qualifier race, just one spot out of a transfer into the A-Main. He finished third in one of the B-Mains on Saturday to qualify, but the A-Main proved to be quite the adventure.

Miller and Scott Kreutter took part in a very entertaining battle during the 50-lapper, but Kenny was also caught up in several tangles throughout the contest, and they relegated him to a 17th place finish.

Filled with the confidence gained by qualifying for both editions of the Indoor Dirt Nationals and an incredibly successful 2019 outdoor season, Kenny Miller III is ready to attack this year's event in Trenton.

"I don't think as much anymore when I'm on the track," he stated. "I just race hard and react to whatever happens. After running the Midget, I think, things slowed down when I got back in the 600. Everything seems to happen more slowly, even though we're going pretty fast in these cars, and that allows me to kind of see what's going to happen and react to it. I think that's why I've been more successful in the last couple seasons."

Miller is a driver who is looked up to by most, literally, in that he stands 6'5".

The teenage two time ‘19 Micro track champion is among a huge field expected or the third annual East Coast Dirt Nationals. The number of entries accepted will be 100, as dictated by building space constraints.

Tickets are currently available in a range of different prices for at www.indoorautoracing.com or at the venue box office in advance or the days of the event.

As a bonus for fans purchasing  tickets in advance for Saturday’s main event programing, at that time they can add a Friday ticket for just $10 when the entire arena will non-reserved.

Corporate sponsorship at a variety of levels is available for all remaining events. Interested parties should contact Danny Sammons at 609-888-3618 or e-mail danny@aarn.com.

HUMMER MOTORSPORTS ENTERS THREE 600 SPRINTS FOR EAST COAST DIRT NATIONALS IN TRENTON; BRIGHT BROTHERS, MIKE MAHANEY NAMES AS DRIVERS FOR THE FEB. 21-22 INDOOR RACES

TRENTON, NJ February 9, 2020 . . . Bob Hummer, Jr., a second generation race car driver and car owner, has entered three Hyper chassis cars in the third annual East Coast Dirt Nationals, with three high powered drivers capable of winning it all behind the wheel of them.

The third annual ‘Indoor Dirt Nationals’ return to CURE Insurance Arena in Trenton, NJ, on February 21–22 featuring nearly 100 wingless 600cc sprints on the indoor banked, clay oval.

Three-car team owner Hummer, 50, of Belvidere, NJ, has entered cars that will go to post with the Bright brothers, Alex and Brendan Bright of Collegeville. PA and Mike Mahaney of Plattsburgh, NY in the cockpits of his three meticulous prepared Micros.

Hummer has resurrected his father’s car number, No. R7, for the car Brendan Bright will drive while Mahaney’s will carry the No. XR7 designation.  Alex Bright will wheel the No. 20.

The Bright brothers are experienced hands in 600 Sprint racing, both indoors and outdoors. Mahaney, a full-time dirt Modified racer, has run just four races in his career in the small-cars and none of them indoors.

“I know that racing a car for Bob means it will be a good, well prepared car,” Mahaney said, looking forward to the challenge.

“I don’t know much about indoor racing so I’ll be relying in my teammates a lot to get dialed in.”

Mahaney’s 2020 outdoor racing schedule with the Super DIRTcar Series big block and small block Modifieds will limit his opportunities to do many other small-car races during the outdoor season.

“I’ll be at Kutztown’s Action Track, schedule permitting, and try to make all of the big shows,” Mahaney qualified.

Bob Hummer, Sr. was a Dirt Modified driver in the ‘80s, but found that owning race cars and putting top drivers behind the wheel such as Brett Hearn and Jack Johnson was far more enjoyable than driving himself.

Hummer, Jr. has traveled a similar path, first racing go-karts, then moving into Micro Sprints.

“I got in pretty deep,” Hummer, Jr. said. “And then I decided to get out of it.”

And he stayed out, for 20 years, building Rodota Trucking, which his father had founded, into a regional trucking powerhouse.

Now, by Hummer’s own admission, he’s in “pretty deep” again into racing.

“Racing gets in your blood,” Hummer said. “It’s something I have always enjoyed and look forward to the East Coast Dirt Nationals for some good results.”

Alex and Brendan Bright drove for Hummer last year in 600 Sprints while Mahaney raced a SpeedSTR at Action Track, USA in Kutztown, PA under Hummer’s ownership.

Hummer said he will be further expanding his reach in the sport by fielding a second SpeedSTR for Billy Pauch, Sr. to drive on a regular basis at the new four-tenths mile Bridgeport Speedway. He will also get behind a 360 Sprint car initiative with Alex Bright. Specific 360 Sprint plans are in the process of being formulated by Hummer and Bright.

“I like helping younger drivers in their careers,” Hummer said, noting that in addition to the Bright brothers and Mahaney, Nash Ely has also driven for him in a 600 Sprint.

Whitey Kidd, III won the 2017 inaugural running of the East Coast Dirt Nationals while Erick Rudolph drove Tommy Fraschetta’s car to a win in the second running in December of 2018. This year, the event was moved away from the Christmas holidays to the weekend after the Daytona 500.

Hummer’s three car juggernaut is among a huge field expected or the third annual East Coast Dirt Nationals. The number of entries accepted will be 100, as dictated by building space constraints for the two day event.

Teams will arrive in Trenton on Thursday for closed door practice on the track which again be built with rich tacky black dustless class. On Friday, by the luck of a blind draw, the field will be split into 10 heat races. Those that start in the back will benefit by points given for each car passed.

The top 60 in heat race points are then divided into four A-Main qualifiers of which the top three transfer directly to Saturday’s 40 lap A-Main event paying $5,000 to the winner.

On Saturday all non-qualified drivers are split into qualifying races by their results on Friday. Each of these events, starting with twin letter F-Mains transfer four to the next main until two B-Mains are reached on the scheduled. In the final qualifiers, the top six transfer to the A-Main which will start 24 cars.

Tickets are currently available in a range of different prices at www.indoorautoracing.com or at the venue box office in advance or the day of the events.

Corporate sponsorship at a variety of levels is available for all remaining events. Interested parties should contact Danny Sammons at 609-888-3618 or e-mail danny@aarn.com.
