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

The 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.

Hagopian, Ryan, Thornhill and Whitney are 2017 Clay Cup Champions 

Everson, 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 Junior Sprints. 

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. 

The 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. 

Jayden 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.

Riley Chaffee 500cc Winner, Dick Lamotte Tops the 600's

Posted 2017-07-10 at 23:15

The 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.

As 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.

The 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.

Heat Race wins went to Ken Stridsburg and Kyle Pittman in the 500cc's with John Mills winning the 600cc Heat.

The 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.




AMSA Results

Waynesfield Speedway -- July 8, 2017

The 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.

Here's the latest information from Mike Long regarding the upcoming USAC sanctioning

Thank you to all for the strong participation in the last three conference calls. We have accomplished our goals and created a foundation to move forward with. To recap where we are, the updated rules are attached. These will now be packaged as a National rule book and redistributed when completed.

I want to thank Levi Jones for spending time with us to answer questions and announce the $10K points fund for 2017. USAC specifics are:

1. Individual groups/clubs will maintain internal control of their series, including but not limited to all financials, tech, procedural calls (line ups) and scheduling

2. Racers will not be required to join USAC and will serve no penalty for not doing so

a. Only USAC registered drivers will be eligible for National Points in sanctioned event.

    i.  Registration will open Jan. 1, 2017

b. Points will be awarded for actual finishing position only.

    i. Points are weighted by total car count per race

c. The drivers membership with USAC would provide them with the extra participant accident insurance

     i. Membership fee is $150 annually

3. Groups / clubs, with registered drivers, will be required to schedule a minimum of 10 USAC sanctioned races per season

a. Groups are permitted to hold events outside of USAC sanction

b.Sanctioned races will be noted upon issue of season schedule

4. Tracks will communicate and deal with each series directly

a. Any participating track would need to supply the group a valid Certificate of Insurance (COI) for a 1 million dollar general liability policy covering the entire year. All scheduled tracks will have their insurance provider email this to Levi at USAC.  

5. Points fund breakdown (thank you all for your ideas – I merged them below)

1. $3000
2. $ 2000
3. $ 1500
4. $ 800
5. $ 700
6. $ 600
7. $ 500
8. $ 400
9. $ 300
10. $ 200

6. Top three finishing positions will be recognized at USAC Night of Champions banquet in Indianapolis during PRI show every December.

We still have a few more things to iron out. I will be in communication with Levi and look forward to seeing you all next Saturday morning at the Museum of American Speed at 9am.




Now as you can see to the left, there are quite a few of the organizations that have yet to develop a website (indicated with white background)...however several of them do have email address'. If you go to the bottom of each information page, you can find the names and address', and phone numbers for those organizations. If you have any update information, please pass on pertinent info. Thanks.
