Ryan and Schmidt Crowned Clay Cup Champions
Three fantastic nights of racing culminated with
Cory Eliason, Liam Ryan and Eli Schmidt being
crowned the 2014 Clay Cup Nationals Champions at
Deming Speedway. Eliason was the first ever repeat
winner in the Speedmart Hoosier 600 division, while
Ryan made it three in a row in the Shots 2 Go
Espresso 1200 class and Schmidt won his first title
in the Mytrafficman.NET 600 Restricted division.
played out all over the Speedmart Hoosier 600 Open
division A Main event. Shaun Holtorf started on the
pole and quickly established a huge lead, racing
away to a full straightaway advantage while rolling
the lower groove. It seemed like an easy Saturday
night stroll for Holtorf until disaster struck on
lap 13. As he entered traffic, Holtorf and Jacob
Brown made heavy contact coming out of corner four.
Both cars stayed under power, but Holtorf sustained
heavy damage to his top wing, mangling the left
sideboard and knocking the center section askew to
the left. Concurrent to the incident with Holtorf
and Brown, Kevin Wilkinson spun in turn two,
creating the events first caution. Holtorf would
restart with Robbie Price hot on his tail and Cory
Eliason in tow. Shaun’s #19 looked surprisingly
good in one and two, but suffered a bad aero push in
turns three and four, which allowed Price to begin
threatening Shaun on the high side. Unfortunately
for Robbie, he would overshoot the exit of turn four
on lap 19 and spin out, relegating him to the back
of the pack. Now Eliason sat in second on the
restart, and the 2006 Clay Cup Champion began his
attack on the high side. On lap 22, Cory carried his
forward momentum off the top of turn two and into
the lead. Holtorf hung tough on the bottom but
gradually lost ground to Cory he continued to fight
the handle on his car in turn three and four. With
the race winding to a close, it looked as if Eliason
would have an easy path to his second clay cup win,
until Holtorf caught a break.
red flags are “open reds” at Deming Speedway and
as the field completed lap 37, Brock Hallett flipped
in turn one and caused a red. Crews flooded to
Holtorf’s car with a new top wing, and managed to
just get a new wing on his car by the time the open
red ended, giving Shaun three laps to try and work
some magic. On the restart, Holtorf would give it
his all on the bottom, shooting in deep down low in
turn two, but it was not to be as Eliason made a
perfect set of corners to reestablish his lead. From
there, Holtorf stayed within two car lengths of
Eliason over the final few circuits but could not
challenge for the win as the Fresno, CA driver took
home the big trophy, the $7500 winner’s share of
the purse and a brand new rear end squaring tool
from Tru-Square. Holtorf collected his career best
finish at Clay Cup in second and Chase Schmidt
filled the podium with a third place run.
Ryan joined Brock Lemley as one of two drivers to
win three Shots 2 Go Espresso Clay Cup Championships
in a row with a wire to wire run for the win on
Saturday night. Ryan, from Langley, BC, was flawless
all night in the Rob Braun owned #72, as he took the
initial lead and quickly stretched out to a large
advantage. Liam had lapped 4 cars by the first
caution at lap 21 for Nate Vaughn and on the
restart, powered away to another big lead. As Jared
Peterson and Jared Gundersen feverishly raced each
other for second and the slower traffic in between
them and Ryan, Liam just put more track space and
more slower cars between him and his chasers. Jake
Helsel spun, causing a yellow on lap 28 that would
bunch the field up one more time, but Ryan again was
perfect on the restart and rolled away to his third
win in a row at the Clay Cup Nationals in the 1200
class. Peterson and Gundersen had a highly
entertaining battle for second which Peterson ended
up winning, with Gundersen collecting a podium
finish for the third straight year with his third
main event of the night was the Mytrafficman.NET 600
Restricted feature, and Eli Schmidt led every lap of
the 30 lap main event to become the second winner in
the division’s short history at Clay Cup. Eli
stretched to an early lead but was in danger as he
approached slower cars, as Kaitlyn Hammer had rolled
to with a couple car lengths of Eli before the
yellow flag flew for inaugural winner Jesse
Schlotfeldt on lap 14. With clean air ahead of him,
the Abbottsford, BC youth once again put distance
between himself and Hammer on his way to collecting
the win. Hammer would settle for second and Cody
Hogarth race into third.
Win from Deep in the Field on Clay Cup Night 2
Fully inverted mains inevitably end up with great
racing, and the big crowd attending night two of the
Clay Cup Nationals at Deming Speedway agreed on
Friday night, as winners from the three divisions
came from deep in the fields to win. Jared Peterson
capped the night with a victory in the Shots 2 Go
Espresso 1200 division from 20th place. Shaun
Holtorf won the Speedmart Hoosier 600 Main Event
from 13th and Eli Schmidt won the Mytrafficman.NET
600 Restricted main from 19th.
Shots 2 Go Espresso 1200 division ran last on the
evening, with a very slick track facing them. At the
drop of the green, Alex Hantel jumped into the lead
and held it for the first seven circuits before
getting crossed up in turn four and losing the lead
to Dwayne Mackey. With Mackey on point, the eyes of
the crowd turned to Jared Peterson who after
starting 20th, had rapidly advanced up the field in
the Doug Rutz owned #8r car. With Mackey working
into traffic, Peterson blazed his way up the field,
weaving high and low to pass cars and putting
himself into second when disaster struck the leader.
Mackey was caught up in a spinning Alex Hantel in
the high reaches of corner one and slid to a stop,
handing the lead to Peterson. From there, the
Stanwood WA native raced away to the win and by
virtue of a huge points night, guaranteed himself a
front row start for the Clay Cup Finale on Saturday
night. Zach Keefe was second and Jason Bloodgood ran
third. Liam Ryan set quick time. Heat winners were
Jared Gundersen, Brock Lemley and Clennon Holloway.
Speedmart Hoosier 600 Open division saw Shaun
Holtorf catfish around the bottom of the speedway
from 13th all the way to the lead on lap 24 en route
to the win. Holtorf, who entered the night with the
highest point score from the previous evening, put
together another great scoring night as he worked
the bottom of the speedway steadily forward until he
closed right up to race leader Spud Allen with just
a few laps left. Holtorf held to what had got him to
the front, the bottom of the track, and as Allen
lost forward bite on the high side, Holtorf took the
lead as the white flag flew en route to grabbing the
win. Allen would settle for second after leading the
first 23 laps. Austin Sheridan was third. Liam Ryan
set quick time. Chance Crum, Jared Peterson, Robbie
Price and Dustin O’Brien won the heats.
Schmidt faced a tall task in the Mytrafficman.NET
600 restricted A Main – a 19th place starting spot
in the A Main after setting quick time on the night
– Clay Cup preliminary night main events are fully
inverted by time. At the drop of the green flag,
Schmidt set to his task, moving forward on the field
around the bottom groove. One by one, Eli worked his
way to the front, taking advantage of a perfectly
setup race car and watching lesser experienced
drivers make mistakes and get into the slick middle
of the track. With a couple of yellow flags and
restarts helping his cause, Eli had worked into
second by lap 19 and on lap 22, he found the bottom
opening up to get underneath race leader Carson
Trigueiro to take the lead and eventual win, making
for a monster point night for the Abbottsford, BC
driver. Trigueiro took second and JJ Thomas was
third. Heat race winners were Dylan Resch, Katie
Turner and Spencer Constance.
Cup rules specify drivers choose their best score
from one night or the other, and that sequences the
lineups for the Saturday night main events. In the
Speedmart Hoosier 600 division, Shaun Holtorf and
Robbie Price will be on the front row for the main
event. Jared Peterson and Liam Ryan will make up the
front row of the Shots 2 Go Espresso 1200 main
event. Eli Schmidt and Kaitlyn Hammer were the top
point earners of the 600 restricted class and will
make up the front row of that feature.
Night Wins to Hallett, Ryan and Watkins on Night One
of 2014 Clay Cup
Night one of the 2014 Clay Cup Nationals is in the
books and at the end of a fantastic night of racing,
Adelaide, South Australia’s Brock Hallett stood in
victory lane after winning the opening night feature
at Deming Speedway. Joining Hallett in victory lane
were Liam Ryan and Riley Watkins.
ILSS cars were back in action on Fri Night at the
Lincoln Speedway and Springfield hot shoe Korey
Weyant won the 16 car Speedway Motors Feature
Event. Weyant and Andy Baugh who won heat races
were disqualified for not coming directly to the
weigh scales after their 8 lap heats were complete
and had to start the 20 lap event from the rear.
This would put Mitchell Davis and Larry Eastin on
the front row. Mitchell would take the lead at the
drop of the green Eastin, Brent Burrows in tow and
Robby McQuinn in 4th. Weyant and Baugh would start
thier run to the front and start to pick off cars
every lap. Mitchell would lead until lap 10 when
Weyant took over with Andy moving to 3rd. baugh
would get by Mitchell on the next lap and get by
Weyant on the backstrech. Andy would spin on the
next lap in turn 4 and Weyant would regain the
lead. On lap 12 Rookie Robby McQuinn took a nasty
end over flip in turn 4 and came to rest on his
wheels. Robby was okay and was able to restart the
event. A hard battle for 3rd went on between
Austin Archdale and Gedd Ross as Andy had worked
his way from the back to the runner up spot behind
Weyant. Austin would squeeze out Ross by the front
bumper at the finish and Mitchell Davis would
finish in the 5th spot. Mitchell Davis and Brent
Burrows would win the Keizer Wheels 8 lap heat

at Macon Speedway.
Beat Back Weather for Fast Night at Deming Speedway
weather would not stop racing on our countries
birthday, as the teams and fans of Deming Speedway
endured persisting light rain to get the bulk of
Pepsi / Clean Crawls night in at the track. After
the Kasey Kahne Junior Sprints timed in, the wet
weather hit, forcing Deming officials into a holding
pattern while waiting for an opportunity to resume
the night. The decision was made to cancel
qualifying and line the remaining divisions up off
time trials. The weather relented around 7pm, and
the track was deemed ready to run heats by 715. From
there, the night blazed by with the final flag
falling at 904pm.
In the evening’s finale, Chance Crum took his
third feature win of the season in the Speedmart
Hoosier 600 Open division. Crum led every lap,
finishing in front of Liam Ryan and Brock Lemley at
the drop of the checkered flag. Heat race winners
were Robbie Price, Kaitlyn Hammer and Joe Constance.
Clennon Holloway and Liam Ryan staged a great battle
in front of the field in the Shots 2 Go Espresso
1200 division. Holloway led the first 18 laps while
Liam worked to show his nose underneath him.
Holloway eventually opened up too much of the bottom
groove, and that’s all Ryan needed to dart
underneath him and into the lead for good on the
19th circuit. Holloway would end up second with
Tyson Cross third. Cross and Holloway were the
winners in heat race action.
Holm used a brave moved amongst heavy traffic to
pick up the win in the Mytrafficman.net 600
Restricted division. Holm was racing amongst leader
Cody Hogarth and Eli Schmidt as well as some slower
cars when, like Moses at the Red Sea, the path
through the middle of the track opened wide up. Holm
drove right through the center of turn one and two,
and with Hogarth and Schmidt committed to grooves
where slower cars were, shot into the lead on lap
16. From there, he raced away to the win, his first
of the season, followed Schmidt in second and
Hogarth third. Heat winners were Schmidt, Darius
Walker-Perkins and Ashleigh Johnson.
the Kasey Kahne Junior Sprints, Peyton Hagen swept
the evening’s activity by taking the lead from
Tyson Lemley on lap nine and streaking away to his
fourth win of 2014. Hagen also won his heat race and
set quick time. Dakota Drake scored her best Deming
Speedway finish in second and Peyton Rambow was
third. Along with Hagen, Rambow and Levi Klatt won

first race of the night was the four lap trophy dash
which was won by Drew Dorsett from Monrovia,
was a full night of racing with four heat races
taking the top four from each heat race into the A
Main. Heat race winners were Collin Ambrose, Andy
Bradley, Doug Jones and Drew Dorsett.
The B Main was without a doubt the most exciting
race of the night. Former USAC and POWRI midget
driver AJ Felker came from the back of the 15 car
field to finish first place followed by Colin
Parker, Howard McCormick and Scotty Orme for fourth
and final transfer position.
the B Main the drivers took some time to have a meet
and greet with the fans. There was a long line of
fans to meet the drivers and to get autographs and
pictures of their favorite drivers.
The 25 lap A Main got off to a rocky start when one
of the cars up front slowed down causing a chain
reaction accident on the first lap. As a result Andy
Bradley ended up collecting a tire on the inside of
turn one causing his car to flip several times and
bringing out the red flag. Andy was able to climb
out of his car but, he was done for the night. On
the restart Jim Gardner was able to set the pace for
the feature. Jim went on to take the checker flag
and never looked back but, unfortunately Jim Garnder
fell victim to a technical rules infraction. The
eventual winner was Collin Ambrose of Owensville, KY
taking his third victory of the season. Second place
went to Nathan Mensendiek from Columbus, Indiana and
third place was AJ Felker from Charlestown, Indiana
who also was awarded the hard charger award.
Next event for the MMSA Lighting Sprints will also
