Daywalt Takes His First Feature of the Year
rains finally stopped, the river crested, and the
road re-opened to Wilmot Raceway on July 22. Several
Teams were skeptical that racing would take place,
but the Wilmot crew got the facility ready in time.
18 Mini Sprints signed in on a hot and muggy night.
Ed Heinert made his triumphant return to the track
after a serious health problem. Kyle Daywalt has
been a consistant Top 5 car, and finally broke
through with a win from the front row. The Top 5
were as follows:
1). Kyle Daywalt
2). Nick Daywalt
3). Mark Heinert
4). Nick Sheridan
5). Derek Fortier

Lighting Sprints next race is at Lake Ozark
Speedway in Eldon, MO on July 29th.
Make plans to come out and watch the USAC
sanctioned Midwest Lightning Sprints squirt
the dirt at Lake Ozark Speedway next week.
racing in the MLS is
fiercely competitive. With motorcycle
power and low cost maintenance, this is
still the most economical way to go fast in
a race car. These cars are 1 second a
lap faster than an A Mod or a Late Model.
New drivers/cars will be coming out each
week. There are good used cars for sale.
Contact the MLS for info.

Ryan, Thornhill and Whitney are 2017 Clay Cup
WA - A large and rowdy crowd was on hand to witness
the 34th Annual Clay Cup Nationals at Deming Speedway
on Saturday night. As the dust settled, it was Fresno,
CA driver Jake Hagopian claiming the top prize as Clay
Cup Champion of the 600 division in the biggest win of
his storied career. Liam Ryan won his seventh Clay Cup
title in the 1200 class, with Colby Thornhill
repeating in the 600 Restricted division and Jayden
Whitney winning his first Deming Speedway main in the
Speedmart Hoosier 600 Open division was the night’s
Main Event with 40 lap and $7,500 on the line for the
winner. Jake Hagopian was the man all race long,
leading all 40 laps to score the victory, Hagopian led
the initial start that was called back, as pole
position car Liam Ryan encountered trouble on the
front straightaway. Start number two also didn’t
fly, as three cars came together resulting in another
caution. The third start was good, seeing Hagopian
cruise out to the early advantage. Jared Peterson
passed Chance Crum to take over second and gave chase
to Hagopian as the three started reeling in the back
of the field. Kaden Holm came to a stop on lap eight,
bunching up the front three again for a restart. Jake
was once again on point, streaking away from Peterson
as they came back to green, with Peterson changing
lines frequently to try and find a combination to both
catch and pass Jake. The race went uninterrupted the
rest of the way, and as Hagopian entered slower
traffic late race, Peterson and Crum closed right up
to Jake’s rear bumper but could advance no further
as Hagopian took the victory and top prize. Peterson
was second for the second straight year followed by
Crum. Chase Schmidt raced forward 10 spots to pick up
hard charger honors.
Shots 2 Go Espresso 1200 Main Event went to Liam Ryan,
who went wire to wire for the victory. Ryan was
pressured all race long, at first by Jake Helsel
before Jake lost a chain on lap 12 that ended his
evening. Chance Crum was the next contender to try his
hand, chasing Liam amongst heavy traffic as the pair
bobbed and weaved amongst the lapped cars. Derek
Holmwood lost his engine on lap 36, giving Ryan clean
air and Crum a chance to start right behind him. On
the restart, Crum also lost an engine, setting up
another restart with Steven Hendrickson and Jared
Gundersen right in behind him. Ryan was perfect on the
final restart, driving away from the pair to score his
fifth 1200 Clay Cup win and seventh overall. Gundersen
passed Hendrickson over the final few laps to take
second and moving Hendrickson to third. Nate Vaughn
was the hard charger, moving forward 11 spots.
History was made in the Mytrafficman.NET 600
Restricted division as Colby Thornhill repeated his
2016 Clay Cup Championship by taking home the 2017
edition, the first driver to repeat in the division’s
five year history at Clay Cup. Thornhill was
absolutely dominant, leading every lap of the main
with little challenge. Colin Mackey scored a solid
second place run, holding off a hard charging Caeden
Steele over the final ten laps to grab the runner up
spot and relegating Steele to third. Blaine Granberg
earned hard charger after winning the B Main, starting
17th in the A and finishing 5th.
Whitney made his first Deming Speedway count in a big
way, winning the Clay Cup Nationals in the Kasey Kahne
Junior Sprints. The initial start was led by Mitchell
Helsel, but the start was negated by a caution. On the
second try, Levi Hillier got the jump on Helsel and
took the lead. Cautions on lap seven and nine slowed
Hillier’s march toward a race win, but it was
mechanical failure that brought Levi to a halt on lap
13, handing the lead to Helsel who had been in hot
pursuit. Helsel would only lead two laps, as he and
Jesson Jacobson tangled in a battle for the lead on
lap 15 causing a caution. This handed the lead to
Jayden Whitney, who had Jade Avedisian all over him
trying to take the top spot. Avedisian had made a move
to pass Whitney and take the lead on lap 23 but a
yellow flag negated the pass and gave the lead back to
Jayden. The young man would capitalize on his good
fortune, driving away from Avedisian on the restart to
take the win. Avedisian captured hard charger in her
second place run, coming from second to take the
runner up spot. Isabel Barnes rounded out the podium
with a third place effort.

Chaffee 500cc Winner, Dick Lamotte Tops the 600's
2017-07-10 at 23:15
O'Reilly Auto Parts Granite State Mini Sprint Club
returned to The Bear Ridge Speedway Saturday, July
8th with a strong field of cars. The program was
delayed by nearly 2 hours by rain and the result was
a lightning fast track. It was hard to tell if it
was the fast track or the full Moon, but there were
more incidents than usual.
is customary the 500cc Feature was first. Trouble
started before the green even flew as an incident on
the backstretch eliminated the #6 of Ken Stridsburg,
the #48 of Ed Vickery and the #42 of Ryan Farwell.
When the green finally flew the #17 Matt Calley
jumped into the lead from the outside Pole position
with the #60 of Kyle Pittman claiming the 2nd spot.
The yellow flew with 6 laps in the books for Will
Pinkham Jr who was facing the wrong way at the exit
of turn 4. Kyle Pittman bolted into the lead on the
restart but the green didn't stay out long as one
lap later the #13 of Andrew Martel shut down in turn
1, bringing out another yellow. While under caution
the #18 of Adam Cunningham also shut down and was
pushed to the pits. At this point race control
called for single file restarts and when racing
resumed Pittman once again was in control. One lap
later yet another yellow appeared with the #96 of
Matthew Collins dead on the track. When racing
resumed Pittman was in control. When the crossed
flags flew for halfway it was Kyle Pittman leading
with Riley Chaffee moving into 2nd and Matt Calley
3rd. Two laps later the caution came out again, this
time for a tangle coming out of turn 2 involving the
#71 of Owen Carbee and the #08 of Logan Osmer. When
racing resumed there were only 6 cars left on the
track with the #51 of Riley Chaffee taking the lead
on the restart. The race went green the rest of the
way with Riley Chaffee picking up the win. Kyle
Pittman was 2nd with Matt Calley 3rd. Owen Carbee
and the #45 of Eric Relation completed the top 5.
600cc Feature event was calmer than the 500cc with
the caution only flying twice. Dick Lamotte in his
#18 took control at the outset of the race and led
the entire distance to take the win. He first fought
off the challenges of the #83 of John Mills, then
Drew Eldridge in the #7 made a brief challenge for
the lead. Later in the event the #14 of Zach Herbert
pulled alongside Lamotte but couldn't complete the
pass. When the final caution flew for a spinning
Eldridge, Herbert headed to the pits with problems.
The #20 of Tony Shaw inherited 2nd at this point
with John Mills, who nearly spun out earlier in the
event working his way back to 3rd. that is how the
running order remained the rest of the race with
Lamotte taking the win, Shaw 2nd and Mills 3rd.
Eldridge came back to finish 4th with Kyle Pittman
in the #9 completing the top 5.
Race wins went to Ken Stridsburg and Kyle Pittman in
the 500cc's with John Mills winning the 600cc Heat.
next event on the calendar for the O'Reilly Auto
Parts Granite State Mini Sprints is this Friday,
July 14th, at The Legion Speedway in Wentworth, NH.
Speedway -- July
Performance Powder Coating AMSA Mini Sprints took
the track for 20 laps of action. The field of 19 was
lead to the opening green flag by young drivers
Bradley Ashford and Korbyn Hayslett. The drag race
into turn one put Hayslett into the lead for the
opening lap. Brad Racer in the 22B brought out the
first caution of the night with just one lap in the
books. A red flag would come three laps later for
the 22 of Gunnar Lucius flipping up and over the
banking exiting turn two. Lucius managed to climb
out of the car unharmed. Back under green, lap
traffic began to build for the leaders. The traffic
was a huge benefit for Ty Tilton has he squeezed his
way into the second spot. Now in second, Tilton set
his sights on Hayslett for the lead. The battle came
to an end as Tilton dropped off the pace and came to
a stop on the track. Tilton’s exit from the
contest moved Kobe Allison into the second spot. On
the restart, Allison made a run on Hayslett before
his machine dropped off the pace giving the second
spot to Brad Strunk. Strunk made a last lap pass and
managed to take home the victory by seven hundredths
of a second. Despite leading much of the race,
Hayslett finished in second with Nick Daugherty
coming home third. Chris Bounds, Korbyn Hayslett and
Bradley Ashford took home heat race victories.

Guide to Getting Started.
Mini Sprint racing is one of the fastest growing segments of
open wheel racing. The class which features open wheel
racers similar in size to a full-size midget, but powered by
a motorcycle engine, have become a popular stepping stone
for today's youth as well as a economical playground for the
weekend warrior. The cars run on both paved and dirt
ovals around the world with the heaviest concentration in
the United States.
