Crum, Cross, Hammer, Hagen and James Claim Deming Speedway Championships

9/20/14
When the dust settled on the final night of racing at Deming Speedway in 2014, five new drivers claimed championships on a fantastic Saturday night in the Pacific NW. Brock Lemley won the Speedmart Hoosier 600 Open main event, and Chance Crum won the championship by two points over Austin Sheridan. Jared Gundersen won the Shots 2 Go Espresso 1200 main with Tyson Cross winning the title. Kaitlyn Hammer claimed the Mytrafficman.NET 600 Restricted championship with Tanner Holm winning the final feature. Peyton Hagen won the Kasey Kahne Junior Sprint championship by five points while Tyler McLeod won his 11th main of the year, and Dougie James claimed the NW USAC HPD Midget title at the track with a victory.

High drama persisted through the Speedmart Hoosier 600 main event. Austin Sheridan took the points lead on Friday night while Chance Crum had mechanical issues, and on Saturday night’s main event, the roles reversed. Sheridan led the first 16 laps, but following a restart after a yellow for Jon Farrell, Sheridan lost power and dropped back in the field. He tried keeping the car out there to save a high enough finish to claim the title, but pulled off and finished 19th. His dropping off gave the lead to Brock Lemley who would race away to claim the win. Chance Crum, running a car borrowed from Mike and Spud Allen, took a third place finish which gave him enough points to reclaim the lead and the grab the point championship by two markers.

Tyson Cross entered the evening knowing a solid finish would bring him the championship in the Shots 2 Go Espresso 1200 division. With second in points driver Jared Gundersen shooting out to a big lead early, Cross settled in and focused on running a smooth race. Gundersen was dominant, easily winning the main event, but it was not enough, as Cross ran a nice consistent line on his way to a third place finish and in the process, winning the season title.

Dougie James entered the night with an eight point advantage over Mike Vollbrecht for the first ever NW USAC HPD Midget championship awarded at Deming Speedway. James punctuated his championship win by taking the lead from Derek Holmwood on lap 11, and holding Vollbrecht off over the back half of the race to grab the victory.

In the Mytrafficman.NET 600 Restricted division, Tanner Holm was flawless in leading all 30 laps of the main event to close out his year on a high note. Kaitlyn Hammer ended up taking the point title merely by signing into the back gate on the night, holding a solid pad on her lead entering the evening. Hammer would finish her championship campaign with a fourth place finish.

The Kasey Kahne Junior Sprint title ended up a lot closer than what it was entering the evening. Peyton Hagen entered the night with a 21 point lead, with Haley Constance chasing him. Hagen shot out to an early lead in the feature, but disaster struck for him on lap 12, as he collided with a lapped car and flipped, causing a red flag. With Hagen officially scored in 18th, Constance, who was in the second spot on the restart, needed to pass the lead car and win the race to tie the championship standings. Constance tried to pass new race leader Dakota Drake, but Drake held her off and in the process, Tyler McLeod passed both drivers to grab the lead and eventual win, his 11th of the season. Drake ended up second and Constance ended up third, giving the title to Hagen by five points.

 

 

Mother Nature wins again “UGG”

Posted on September 21, 2014

It was a great day on Sat for a while any way when we got a call about 20 min form Macon Speedway

 and was informed that rain won out again. This makes 6 rains outs in the last few weeks of the 2014

 ILSS season. With now only 4 nights of racing left in the 2014 season it would be nice if the rain came

 through the week instead of on the week ends. The ILSS will have a double header week end coming

 up XXX your fingers on that with a non wing event on Fri Night Sept 26th at Lincoln Speedway and

 then back to Macon Speedway on the 27th. The season will end on Oct 3rd with a non wing race at

 Lincoln and then to Peoria Speedway for a winged race to end the season. Gedd Ross holds a slim 8

 point lead over Austin Archdale in the 2014 points race and Mitchell Davis is 8 points ahead of Robby

 McQuinn in the rookie of the year standings. Hold on tight its a race to the finish line. Come check out

 the last few races of the 2014 season.

Allen Scores Big Win Heading to Championship Night

9/19/14
High speeds and high excitement permeated Deming Speedway on EMD Construction / Subway night at the track. Spud Allen capped the night with an impressive win in the Speedmart Hoosier 600 Open division, while the season point battle in the class was shook up. Joining Spud in victory lane were Shaun Holtorf, Lance Sargent, Cody Hogarth and Dakota Drake. The season wraps up on Saturday night with the same five classes in action again.

The night belonged to Spud Allen in the Speedmart Hoosier 600 Open division. The Allen machine was hooked up and hauling, leading all 25 laps of the main event, deftly maneuvering through slower cars en route to scoring the impressive victory. The side story from the main event was second place finisher Austin Sheridan, who closed a huge margin in the season championship when point leader Chance Crum’s car wouldn’t start for the A Main. Chase Schmidt took third. Jon Farrell set fast time. Heat race wins went to Spencer Constance, Kris Labree, Shaun Holtorf and Liam Ryan.

When Shaun Holtorf is afforded an opportunity, he makes the most of it. Such was the case on Friday night, as Shaun’s first night in the Frosty Metcalfe owned car saw him end up in victory lane in the Shots 2 Go Espresso 1200 division. Holtorf led all 25 high speed laps in a race that went caution free. Jared Gundersen was second and Eric Turner took third. Tyson Cross broke into the nine second bracket in setting quick time. Heat winners were Joe Constance and Eric Turner.

Lance Sargent went wire-to-wire for the win in the NW USAC HPD Midget Series Main. Sargent lead all 20 lap while be challenged by Tristin Thomas who settled for second. Mike Vollbrecht took third. Sargent won the heat race while Thomas set fast time.

Cody Hogarth took advantage of the opportunity given to him by making a late race pass for the win in the Mytrafficman.NET 600 Restricted division. Hogarth chased Jesse Schlotfeldt all race long, looking for an opportunity to get by him. That opportunity came up on lap 24, as Schlotfeldt washed wide in turn two, allowing Cody the chance to drive underneath and into the lead and on to the eventual win. Schlotfeldt ran second and Spencer Constance was third. Riley Watkins collected his first career quick time. Sawyer Sorgenfrei and Kaitlyn Hammer won the heats.

Dakota Drake scored her first career Deming Speedway win in the Kasey Kahne Junior Sprints. Dakota took the lead from Mitchell Helsel on the inside of turn two on lap three, and streaked away to the impressive win. Helsel ran a strong second with Tyler McLeod rallying from eighth to third. McLeod was the quick qualifier. Drake was also a heat race winner, as were Tyson Lemley and Alex Gouy.

HILLBERG PICKS UP SECOND WIN OF THE YEAR AT GLENN HOWARD CLASSIC!

(Torrance, CA, September 13, 2014) Longtime veteran Dan Hillberg became only the second driver in 2014 to win more than one main event in the California Lightning Sprint Car Series when he outdistanced the field in the Glenn Howard Classic last Saturday at Perris Auto Speedway.

Dan Hillberg after winning his second California Lightning Sprint Car main event of the year last Saturday at Perris Auto Speedway. Media please feel free to publish this photo and please give photo credit to Doug Allen.

The 20-lap main event got off to a rocky start for all three of the championship contenders. Bobby Michnowicz, who came into the night third in points and with a series leading five main events wins, became the first victim at the drop of the initial green. As the pack screamed into The PAS hybrid track, which uses turns one and two of the inner quarter mile track and turns three and four of the half mile, Michnowicz coasted silently into the first corner before coming to a stop off of turn two. Unknown at the time, the culprit was a bad crank trigger sensor and it spelled the end of the night for the 2012 champion.

On the second try, a multi-car pileup brought the proceedings to a stop before the field reached the second turn. Fort Irwin’s Jeff Dyer, who has led the points most of the campaign, had his throttle system was damaged and he was done for the night.

With those two out, it only left the second place car in the championship chase, San Diego’s Damon Arnett, on the track and he was poised to take full advantage of the opportunity offered. And, after the tangle the previous start, he was starting on the outside of the front row. The third time the green flew, Arnett jumped into the lead in front of Corona rookie Corey Hoover. A smooth run up front and Arnett was going to be the new point leader. However, it was not to be. When he got into turn three on the first lap, Arnett had about a three car length lead, but he spun in front of the entire pack! Amazingly he did a 360 and everyone missed him, but he went from the lead all the way back to eighth.

Arnett’s misfortune handed the leaded to the 2014 CLS Rookie point leader Hoover. The impressive teenage racer maintained the top spot until he bobbled in turn two on the 13th circuit. That is all the longtime veteran Hillberg was waiting for. He quickly pounced on the situation and put his bright yellow LMC/Decore Plating/Okie Race Cars/Doug’s Auto Body #10 into the top spot. Hoover quickly recovered from the bobble, but it was too late as wily veteran Hillberg was gone and parked in the CLS victory circle for the second time in 2014. Hoover was second about a half straight behind Hillberg, Anaheim Hills racer Guy Maresch, who has missed several races this year, came from ninth on the start to a season best third at the finish. Fourth spot went to Upland’s Alex Grigoreas who tipped over in the lap one tangle and had to restart at the back. Murrieta rookie Cori Andrews, who won a main on the same track back in May, finished fifth.

Maresch was the main event “Hard Charger” going from 9th on the start to his third place finish.

Earlier in the night, Michnowicz out qualified the 17-car field with a lap of 17:217. Hoover and fellow rookie Jeremy Queener won the two six lap heat races.

Arnett’s spin proved costly. He came in trailing Dyer by 36-points in the 2014 championship chase. Had he not spun on the first lap, he would have been the new point leader with four races to go. Instead, he is still second, but now only trails the leader by eight-points. Michnowicz is third with Hoover and Andrews rounding out the top five.

Hoover still leads the Rookie of the Year standings. Andrew is 29-points behind . Queener is third 70 behind the leader.

The CLS will be back in action as it visits the Bakersfield Speedway for the final time in 2014 on September 27th. It will also be the final round of the “North vs South Civil War Series” matching the CLS against Northern California’s BCRA.

There are two changes to the remaining CLS schedule. Instead of racing on the Friday and Saturday, November 7th & 8th, at the 19th Annual Budweiser Oval Nationals Presented by All Coast Construction, the CLS will race on the Thursday and Friday, November 6th and 7th, portions of the show. The race on the 7th will now be the season finale for the CLS as the November 15th race at El Centro has been canceled due to another event on the Imperial County Fairgrounds.

PAS Main Event (with starting positions): 1. Dan Hillberg (6th), 2. Corey Hoover (3rd), 3. Guy Maresch (9th), 4. Alex Grigoreas (5th), 5. Cori Andrews (11th), 6. Damon Arnett (4th), 7.

Logan Seavey wins annual Tracy Taylor Midget Lite race at Placerville Speedway 9/13/2014

Submitted by Bob Roza

On a warm Saturday evening, the fast Placerville Speedway was in excellent condition for the annual Tracy Taylor Memorial race for the BCRA Midget Lites.

The twelve car field was broken down into two 6 car heats via a pill pull format. The first heat had veteran Midget/Sprint car driver Craig Dillard on the pole with fast improving second year driver Steve Brown on the outside. Dillard took the early lead over Brown and 3rd starter Brian Corso. Dillard continued to lead with Corso moving into second on lap 4. On the white flag lap, Corso made his move into turn 3 and took the win in an exciting pass at the checkered, over Dillard and Brown.

The second heat had last years Champion Brad Dillard on the pole beside Marcus Smith. Dillard took the lead at the green and lead all the way for the win over rookie Logan Seavy in the fast John Taylor Henchcraft/Suzuki and Smith.

The Main Event was next and with an inversion of 6, the field was set for the 20 lap race with Marcus Smith on the pole and Steve Brown on the outside. A scratch from the Main was Scott Kinney in the Rod Browning immaculate ART/Suzuki with transmission issues. On the positive side, Scotty Males in the Tony Fonseca Red Hawk #9 car had motor issues in his heat and changed the motor in time to join the A Main field. The track was drying out so owners and drivers were busy changing the set-ups on their cars. At the green flag, Brown took an early lead but it was Seavy who darted into the lead on the 4th turn and quickly opened a gap between him and the rest of the field. Brown settled into second with the Dillards moving into 5th and 6th. Besides Seavy, who was consistently fast on the bottom, cars on the move were Corso who methodically, passed Brad and then Craig Dillard to move into 3rd, whiles Males was rim riding and putting on a show for the packed grandstands. At the checkered, it was Logan Seavy taking a convincing win over Steve Brown; in his best ever finish, with Brian Corso in 3rd, followed by Brad Dillard and his Dad, Craig Dillard, with veteran Terry Bergstrom finishing a fine 6th. With Corso’s fin run, he earned the 2014 BCRA Midget Lite Championship, so Congratulations to Brian, and his crew of AJ & Dave VV of the Ripon Mafia for a job well done.

Summary:
Heat 1: 1) Brian Corso, 2) Craig Dillard, 3) Steve Brown, 4) Terry Bergstrom, 5) Chris Hansen, 6) Scott Kinney

Heat 2: 1) Brad Dillard, 2) Logan Seavy, 3) Marcus Smith, 4) Danika ‘Jo Parker, 5) Craig Holsted, 6) Scott Males

Posted on September 15, 2014

Gedd Ross of Havana IL took home the Speedway Motors-Roger Bess Trucking-SBG Logistics 20 lap A-main on Sat night at Macon Speedway. It was the 2nd straight night for a photo finish . Ross edged Brimfield’s Austin Archdale at the finish line as the top 6 spots changed on the last lap. A stellar field of 20 ILSS cars were on hand for the night of racing on the nations fastest and “SMOOTHEST” 1/5 mi. dirt oval . Bob Sargent and the staff do an excellent job. Gedd Ross and Robby McQuinn {ri night winner} would bring the 20 car field to the green flag. Gedd would get the jump at the start with Robby 2nd and Brayton Lynn in 3rd and Andy Bradley in 4th. On lap 5 Austin Archdale would move to 4th behind Lynn. A yellow on lap 6 for Brent Burrows spin in turn 2  would bunch up the field. Gedd and Robby would put on a fierce battle for the lead running the next few laps side by side for the lead. Gedd would lead one lap Robby would lead one lap as they battled back and forth for the lead. While that was going on for the lead behind them Austin would move to 3rd spot after getting by Brayton on lap 11. The 2nd caution would come out on the back stretch as Mitchell Davis and Brayton Lynn got together. On the restart Gedd, Robby and Austin would put on a great battle for the #1 spot with Andy Bradley a close 4th . On the 16th lap Austin would get by Robby for 2nd and close the gap on Gedd for the lead. Austin would lead on lap 17 and Gedd would regain the lead on lap 18. Robby would get high in turn 4 on the last lap and Brad Funk would move in to 4th spot.

9-13-14  Dillon Buhr of Jacksonville, Fl. parked his Buhr Motorsports/Henchcraft/Suzuki on the front stretch tonight at North Florida Speedway making it 3 wins of the season in the Southern States Midget Series this year. Buhr from the inside pole had to race Darrin Davis extremely hard for 3 laps as Davis from the outside got the jump on the start in his Southern Outlaw Motorsports/Lucas Oil/MavTV/Ford powered Eagle from the outside front row. Davis and Buhr raced side by side with Davis' teamate Trey Pearson was doing all he could to make it a 3 way battle for the lead in his SOM/Lucas Oil/MavTV/Ford powered Triple X. Davis was the first to fletch as he drove'r deep into 3 only to have his car push up the track and give Buhr just a little breathing room for maybe a lap or 2 as Pearson wanted desperately to get a win on this night as his dad 5 time Lucas Oil Super Late Model racer Earl Pearson Jr. was on hand from a rare off date of racing himself. Pearson did run the 24 of Buhr down only to have his tires completely give up with 2 laps to go. But on this night it was all Dillon Buhr.

The always steady Terry Becker from the Villages of Florida had a strong battle with Bob Jordan out of Brainbridge, Ga. Jordan was doing double duty tonight in his red #23 as he raced with the SSMS and the DAARA (Daytona Antique Auto Racing Association) that was on hand. Buhr also captured the heat win. SSMS will be right back at NFS next weekend Sept. 20 racing on the 3/8 mile speedplant in Lake City Florida.

For those that are interested in becoming a member of the SSMS or what rules/changes/updates and or just me some the the racers and owners they will be have a meeting open to the public Wed. Sept. 17 at Cross Creek BBQ and Steaks off Lane Ave. in Jacksonville. 6:30 to 7:30 will be dinner meeting/question and answers 7:30 to 8:30. Come on out and stop by if you might see yourself in a midget come 2015.

Results:
1. Dillon Buhr
2. Trey Pearson
3. Darrin Davis
4. Terry Becker
5. Bob Jordan

 

 

The Travis McDonnell, Kathy Morris, Darwin Brink Memorial Point Championship Weekend

Black Hills Mini Sprint Tour Championship Weekend

               With two nights of racing left in the Black Hills Mini Sprint Tour's season, things couldn't have heated up any more for the racing and the championship at the Travis McDonnell, Kathy Morris, Darwin Brink Memorial Race. Visiting the speedway for the first time of the year, was a bit of a challenge for a few of the racers in the 24 car field. The heat races went off without a hitch, but things got interesting once the main event started. The first accident of the evening was when point leader Logan Hershey spun in turn 4, collecting Jordan Mattson, who was making his first appearance with the BHMST. Mattson in his bright pink #19X barrel rolled 3-4 times. His car was done for the evening, but he was unharmed. The second frightening crash of the evening was when Brandon Mills making his way through traffic, clipped an inside tire and another car at the same time, sending him into the air end over end. His Rick Peterson owned #22 machine was bent and banged up, but his safety equipment kept Brandon safe.

               When the 20 lap feature was finished, Donnie Bandy wheeled his black #28 to his first ever feature win. Donnie and his brother Robert have been a consistent top finishers, but up until Friday night haven't found a win this year. The Bandy's teammate Scott Hudson finished a close 2nd, while the youngster Blayne Brink came across the stripe 3rd. The veteran Larry Reub and Newcastle's Tom Peterson finished out the top 5. Point leader Hershey finished 3 spots behind John Garrigan jr., closing the gap to just one point going into the final night.

               Saturday Night's promise for an exciting finish to the BHMST season did not disappoint. Again, the heat races went off with no accidents, except the point leader Hershey spun in his heat race and was counted 5th in his heat, while 2nd in points Garrigan won the heat race, which gave Garrigan a 3 point lead going into the 30 lap feature.

               The track was perfect both nights with multiple lanes of racing, which Robert Bandy (brother of Donnie Bandy, the winner of Friday nights feature) needed to weave his way through lapped traffic to capture his first victory of the year and first main event win in about 7 years. Their teammate Scott Hudson again finished in the runner up spot and the youngster Blayne Brink again finished 3rd for the night. Logan Hershey drove from the back of the pack to finished 4th and Brandon Mills wheeled his repaired #22 to a top 5 finish. John Garrigan Jr. leading the points by 3 points going into the feature finished 3 positions behind Hershey in 7th, making a BHMST Point Championship TIE for the first time ever.

The only major incident of the event was when Brandon Mills and Nate Hand tangled in turn 2, sending Hand's #2 machine rolling and finished for the evening.

Special thanks to JR Hughes, The Western Wanderer, (www.westernwandererphoto.com) for spending the weekend in the infield with his camera and getting some great action shots.
