"Internet message boards are the worst thing to happen to racing since rain-outs.

 For every insightful, worthwhile comment, there are about 10 “eye-rollers”, and 10 or 20 mean spirited comments that do nothing to build our sport and only frustrate and annoy the sponsors, promoters and participants."

We will be traveling with CRSA Sprint Cars for the 2014 Racing Season


Ok tough girl, let's go shopping. You need to look hot in the pits or in the stands.

 Always show your style, even at work and school. Dirt Track Girl is the best in women's clothing with a dirt track theme. You can be bold and shout how much you like to get dirty, or you can discretely wear your passion in a way that only you and your racer know what it's all about.

Remember: Tough and Sexy Always!

360 Knoxville Nationals Ready to Take the Green Flag

KNOXVILLE, Iowa - July 30, 2014

Starting tomorrow, fans will see the best 360 sprint car drivers from all over the world converge on the historic Marion County Fairgrounds and the Knoxville Raceway. The Arnold Motor Supply 360 Nationals will be held this Thursday, July 31st through Saturday, August 2nd. The field of 102 cars will be split into two qualifying nights earning points every time they hit the track. The top points drivers from the qualifying nights will fill out the field. Points acquired from the qualifying night events will determine how the lineups are set for the 24th annual 360 Nationals.

The field is very deep this year with the top local Knoxville talent, ASCS National competitors and many invaders all vying for the $10,000 payday and a chance to be a Knoxville Nationals Champion.


Knoxville Raceway General Manager Brian Stickel has been preparing everything for fans and drivers for the 360 and 410 Knoxville Nationals. There is a fresh coat of white paint on the iconic fence and a beautiful High Definition video board has replaced the old video screen in turns 3 and 4.


"I have never been this excited about a Knoxville Nationals event," Stickel said. "It's the upgrades to the fan experience, the great fans we have and the unbelievable talent of drivers entered this year that creates the whole package. I couldn't be more proud of everyone involved at the Knoxville Raceway and the Marion County Fair Board. The time and effort that goes into putting on an event like this is extraordinary.


 We are ready for the best 10 days of racing anywhere in the world."

About Knoxville Raceway
The Knoxville Nationals and Knoxville 360 Nationals draw nearly 100,000 sprint car fans to witness the most prestigious and largest dirt track races in the world in early August. The Nationals combine racing with a cultural festival featuring parades, live music, camping, and expositions.

This August 6th - 9th more than 100 drivers will compete for a nearly million-dollar purse and the esteemed title of 2014 Knoxville Nationals Champion. More information available at www.KnoxvilleRaceway.com

Donny Schatz Battles Shane Stewart to Win Third in a Row at Ohsweken Speedways Six Nations Showdown

Schatzs 12th win of the season gives him the most wins of any driver so far this season

OHSWEKEN, Ont. - July 29, 2014 - Neither cautions nor a fierce battle with Shane Stewart could stop Donny Schatz on his way to a sweep of the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series' three-race Canada swing and 12th win of the season at Ohsweken Speedway Tuesday night.


Schatz won the Six Nations Showdown after winning the two previous events at Cornwall Motor Speedway and Autodrome Drummond.


"I just did everything I could," Schatz said. "A lot of it comes down to [crew members] Rick Warner, [Steve 'Scuba' Swanson], Eric [Prutzman], Bill Klingbeil - these guys do a phenomenal job working on this racecar and making STP look good."


In addition to winning the feature at Ohsweken, Schatz was third quickest in hot laps, took home the quick time - his sixth of the season - won his heat race and finished second in the dash.


"The [STP/Armor All] car was fun to drive all night long, right from the word go," Schatz said. "Hot laps, qualifying, heat race. Shane got out front there pretty early. I expected the track to slow down and slick off there a little bit more than it did but it was fast. It was an awful fast race. Hats off to the whole STP team, they did a great job getting me what I needed."


"I enjoyed being in Canada. It's been great to me. O Canada!"


Cautions plagued the early part of the race. Just after the drop of the green flag, an incident left Paul McMahan on his roof in the middle of turns one and two and Jason Sides and Kraig Kinser with damaged racecars. Sides and McMahan were able to return to the track while Kinser had his night ended.


Two more cautions followed in quick succession for Sides and Logan Schuchart. With Stewart leading, James McFadden in second and Schatz in third another caution came out with eight complete after a mechanical issue led to a fire on the No. 52 of Jesse Costa. Costa was OK.


On the restart, Schatz fought his way around McFadden for second. What commenced was a ten lap battle for the lead between Schatz and Stewart. On laps 10, 11 and 12 Schatz looked low and in the middle to get around Stewart but couldn't make it work. With a decent lead built up, Stewart hit lapped traffic on lap 15. As he worked his way through it, Schatz began reeling him back in.


By lap 18, Schatz was again on Stewart's rear bumper bar, challenging him for the lead. After a hiccup for Stewart, Schatz got around and led lap 19. Stewart however was able to use lapped traffic as a pick, sliding Schatz through turns one and two. He led lap 20.


Schatz was not done though, on the next lap he too was able to use lapped traffic as a pick, getting back around Stewart to lead lap 21. Though Stewart tried to reel Schatz back in, Schatz took the checkered flag for his third win in a row. His current streak is the second longest of the season.


Schatz extended his points lead over Daryn Pittman to 106. After a difficult night that saw him finish in 18th, third place Paul McMahan fell to 178 points back.

Stewart, who has one World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win this season, complimented his Townline Variety team, a temporary home for the driver who normally competes with Larson Marks Racing.


"All these guys behind me, they worked really hard for me all week," Stewart said. "They're all part-timers. They don't get paid to work on this car and they all do it because they love it. It was a joy working with them… We had a really solid week. I think if a couple of things had played out a little differently I think we maybe could have gotten a win here or there. It was a good week for us."


McFadden said he was disappointed his All-Star Performance/Gaerte Engines/XYZ Machining team was so close to the front, but unable to compete with Stewart and Schatz for the lead.


"It's good for our confidence leading into these next few races," McFadden said. "It just sucks we couldn't race with them there. I could see them - I just couldn't get close enough. Hats off to the boys with this 3G team - we've had a pretty solid summer since I've been here, so it's been great."

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series returns to action at the Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Mo. for the Prelude to the Ironman and the Ironman 55 on August 1 and 2. After that, the Outlaws head to Knoxville, Iowa to compete for one of the most coveted prizes in all of motorsports - the Knoxville Nationals.


OHSWEKEN SPEEDWAY NOTES: Donny Schatz's 12th win gave him the most wins of any driver so far this season… Jessica Zemken, Paul McMahan, Cody Darrah and Donny Schatz all won their heat races tonight… Donny Schatz's three race win streak is the second longest this season… Logan Schuchart got his third podium finish of the season… David Gravel received the KSE Hard Charger Award at Ohsweken after advancing nine positions to finish in fifth… Donny Schatz picked up his sixth quick time of the season.

Patriot Sprint Tour Returns to Ransomville for A-Verdi Night this Friday


Rich Vleck, ROCHESTER, NY, (July 28, 2014)- Ransomville Speedway, one of the cornerstone racetracks in Patriot Sprint Tour history is set to host another event this Friday.


For the first time since 2007, the Patriot Sprint Tour makes a second top at the Ransomville Speedway in a single season this Friday, in a special event presented by A-Verdi Storage Containers.  It is a highly-anticipated event by teams that ran well at the 4/10-mile oval back in June, as well as those that are hope for retribution.


Back in June, Jared Zimbardi held off the late-race charge from local favorite Stewart Friesen to claim his second career win at the “BIG R”.  It was Zimbardi’s second win of the year and since that time he scored three more victories, including a pair in PST Canada competition.  Zimbardi has developed a healthy point lead over Steve Collins, but Collins is hard on the charge after a runner-up performance on Saturday at Woodhull, his best career PST finish.


Chuck Hebing was the winner of the event at Woodhull on Saturday Night but was unable to attend the June Ransomville race.  Despite his absence, the “Cobra” has not lost a Patriot race at the “Big R” since 2007.


Brad Knab sits third in points and up until last Saturday had his last heat win occur at Ransomville.  It is the four drivers just behind him in the standings though that are attracting local interest though.  Ransomville’s Dave and Scott Just ran well in heat race action in June but had their special night ended in the first set of corners in a massive pile-up.  They are salivating at the thought of returning to their hometown racetrack this Friday. 


Lewiston’s Derek Jonathan has not missed a Patriot race at Ransomville since his rookie season of 2006 and will undoubtedly attend, as will current rookie Dane Lorenc from Lancaster, NY. Alden’s Scott Kreutter suffered a motor issue in the June race but still hung on to finish in sixth, two spots ahead of Williamsville’s Don Adamczyk, who has circled the Ransomville races on his limited schedule.


Others that are looking forward to a return to the Niagara Frontier are four-time champion Bryan Howland, June runner-up Tommy Wickham, Tyler Graves, Paul Habeck and Jeremy Barnard.  Some teams that were unable to attend the June race are also expected to attend including Steven Hutchinson Jr., Mitch Brown and Todd Hoddick, just to name a few.


A-Verdi Storage Containers has been a strong supporter of Patriot Sprint Tour action since 2007, including a host of events at Ransomville.  They have serviced Upstate New York with storage and office solutions for more than 30 years and are ready to serve you.  For more information, visit www.AVerdi.com.


Ransomville Speedway is located on Braley Rd just North of Ransomville and Rt. 93.  Pit gates swing open at 5:00 P.M., with racing getting underway at 7:15 P.M.   Please keep in mind that no child under 12 years of age is permitted in the pits and those near that age should be prepared to provide proper age identification. Those ages 12-17 will need a parent to sign the insurance waiver for them to receive entrance.  For more information, be sure to visit www.PatriotSprintTour.com.

Donny Schatz Scores 11th Win of the Season at Cornwall Motor Speedway

Schatz gets his second win in as many nights and remains undefeated with the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series at Cornwall


CORNWALL, Ont. - July 27, 2014 - Donny Schatz scored his second World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win in as many nights Sunday after battling David Gravel and Kerry Madsen at Cornwall Motor Speedway. It was Schatz's 11th win of 2014, tying him with Daryn Pittman for the most on the season.


Schatz, who won the Outlaws' first and most recent appearance at the track in 2012, said Canada has been very good to him.

"[I] always look forward to coming," Schatz said. "When we saw those rain clouds earlier in the day we were trying to get them to go away and obviously it worked. Can't control Mother Nature, but she was obviously a race fan tonight. I hope you guys enjoyed it - it was great to be here tonight. The track was fun for me."


The driver of the No. 15 STP/Armor All car complimented his team for the work they have been doing to get him to 11 wins.

"This team is really operating right now," Schatz said. "They're doing a phenomenal job. Everything they keep doing to these racecars is making big changes. Makes for a happy driver."


Schatz extended his championship points lead again Sunday night. He now has an 83 point lead over Pittman. Third place Paul McMahan is 135 points out of the lead.


Kerry Madsen and David Gravel led the field to the green flag as Madsen jumped out to an early lead. Gravel got off track in the opening laps and slipped back to the fifth position. The first caution of the night flew on lap six.

As the green flag again flew, Schatz made his move, reeling in Madsen, as the Australia-native approached lapped traffic. After completing lap 10, Schatz slid Madsen and made it stick, taking over the lead on lap 11.


Shortly after, three cautions fell in quick succession. When the green flag again came out on lap 20, Schatz led Madsen, Paul McMahan, Kraig Kinser and David Gravel. In sixth, Logan Schuchart had advanced two positions from his eighth place starting position. By lap 30 Gravel was making a charge back after his earlier problem, moving into the third position, while Schuchart continued his advance forward to fourth.

The final caution of the night came out on lap 38 and set up a green, white, checkered finish. When the green flag dropped Schatz quickly built on his lead, with Madsen in second, and Gravel and Schuchart battling for third. Schuchart quickly slid Gravel and took over third.

Schatz took the checkered flag in first with Madsen second and Schuchart third.


Madsen's second place finish was his second in as many nights in his American Racing Custom Wheels car. He led the first ten laps of Sunday's feature.


"We'll take second all night long," Madsen said. "We want to win them but we got beat by a better car tonight. Anytime we can finish on the podium it's a great result… It's extremely tough competition so we're definitely not disappointed. This is a great momentum builder for us and gives us a lot of confidence in the team for the rest of the year and the big races coming up."


Madsen thanked his crew members and team owners Bob and Peter Gavranich.


Schuchart got his third podium finish of the season at Cornwall in his Your Auto Source car - the first came at Thunderbowl Raceway, where he finished second, and the second came at the Dirt Track at Charlotte, where he finished third.


Schuchart, who took the KSE Hard Charger Award of the night after advancing five positions, said the caution flags late in the race helped him make up ground and make the passes he needed to score a podium finish.


"We got racing pretty good but everyone is pretty equal so it makes it kind of hard. It was a slick track - it made it racy, it made it fun to drive on," Schuchart said. "I think the last couple yellows helped us to get a couple more cars."

"Anytime you run good, you like it. All these tracks are new tracks to us, especially up here in Canada. But we're having fun, we like it and we're happy to be here."


The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series continues its swing through Canada at Ohswheken Speedway on Tuesday, July 29 for the Six Nations Showdown. The Outlaws then travel to Pevely, Mo. for the Prelude to the Ironman and the Ironman 55 at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 on August 1 and 2.


CORNWALL MOTOR SPEEDWAY NOTES: Donny Schatz tied Daryn Pittman for the most wins of the season at 11… Donny Schatz extended his points lead to 83 over Pittman… Logan Schuchart got his third podium finish of the season… Logan Schuchart took the KSE Hard Charger Award at Cornwall after advancing five positions to finish third… Logan Schuchart, Joey Saldana and David Gravel all won their heat races earlier in the night.

Jim Huppunen and Dave Dykstra led the 19-car Corr/Pak Merchandising 360 Sprint Car feature to the green flag. Dykstra grabbed the early lead off the initial start, shuffling Huppunen back to second. American invaders Wayne Johnson of Knoxville, IA and Shane Stewart of Pittsboro, IN battled for the third position early after starting side-by-side in the second row.

Johnson battled to take the lead from Dykstra on lap six and never looked back. Dykstra faded in the middle portion of the race as Huppunen ran in second ahead of Stewart. Johnson grew his lead to nearly a half lap as he ran through lapped traffic in the caution-free race. Johnson set a new track record for a 20-lap 360 sprint car feature at 4:55.961 en route to the victory. Stewart used a lapped car to get by Huppunen on the final corner and steal the second spot.

Mark Czuba and Tyler Hendricks started on the front row for the Strickland’s GMC Crate Sprint Cars feature. Czuba took full advantage of his starting position and assumed top spot on the opening lap. Czuba carved out the top line ahead of second-place runner Jake Brown. Brown tried feverishly to catch Czuba in the first half, but couldn’t gain any ground until a lap eight caution when the front end broke on Paul Lang’s No. 6L.

Czuba got the best of the restart and out-dueled Brown. A pair of late race cautions after spins by Dylan Westbrook gave Brown his best shot at the lead while running the top groove. It didn’t matter though as Czuba was too strong on the bottom and held off Brown and Hendricks for his first career sprint car victory.

Patience Pays Off for Donny Schatz as He Wins at Autodrome Drummond

This was Schatz's 10th World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win of the season and his first at the track


DRUMMONDVILLE, Que. - July 26, 2014 - Donny Schatz charged past lapped cars and his competition Saturday night at Autodrome Drummond on the way to his 10th World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win of the season.


Schatz, who spent much of the race in his fifth place starting position, had his patience pay off as his STP/Armor All car and the track came around.

"You need traffic, you need your racecar to change," Schatz said. "You put 30 gallons of fuel in these things, they're not as fun to drive as they are at the end. We had to wait for the racecar to change a little bit - the track was going to change a little bit. This STP team did a phenomenal job making the right changes for the feature."


As Schatz got around Cody Darrah and then Kerry Madsen he said he didn't focus on what was behind him.


"If I do my job right and get [my] car stuck, you don't have to worry about what's going on behind you," Schatz said. "And my car was very good, very stuck - I could go around the racetrack. I just had to pick the right line to get through those guys and I did… like I said, it was a fun race."

In addition to picking up his 10th win of the season, Schatz improved his points lead over second place Daryn Pittman to 63. Third place Paul McMahan is 121 points out of the lead.


In front of a full house at Autodrome Drummond, Cody Darrah led the field to the green flag in his Ollie's Bargain Outlet car with Paul McMahan on the outside front row. Darrah led the first lap as McMahan worked to hold back Daryn Pittman.


Kraig Kinser brought out the only caution of the race on lap three after coming to a stop in the back shoot. After a brief stop in the work area, Kinser returned to the track. Darrah maintained his lead on the restart as McMahan and Madsen advanced their positions, getting around Pittman, who had a bad restart.


As Darrah hit lapped traffic on lap eight, Madsen, who had moved into the second position, looked for a way around. It took Madsen nine more laps. As the two drivers crossed the start/finish line, Madsen dove his American Racing Custom Wheels car low into turn one and slid Darrah through the corner. When the two hit backstretch, Madsen was in the lead.


Schatz, who maintained his fifth place starting position through the early portion of the race, began to make his move on lap 14. He got around Pittman near the halfway point of the feature and then set his sights on Paul McMahan, who he got around just a few laps later.


On lap 22, Madsen came off of turn two and got off track down the back stretch. His slowed momentum allowed Darrah to close the gap. As Darrah dove low into turn three he and Madsen touched tires. Madsen maintained position as Schatz, in third place, closed the gap on the two drivers. Schatz took over the second place position from Darrah on lap 24. Then, after reeling in Madsen, Schatz passed him on the backstretch going into turn three. Schatz led lap 27 and was never seriously challenged again.


Madsen, who scored the quick time during qualifying earlier in the night and started the feature in fourth, led nine laps through the mid-point of the race.

"Yeah I was trying to push and you want to build up a lead," Madsen said. "I had pretty nice, comfortable groove on the top but I just didn't do a good enough job in traffic and made a mistake and let Donny drive right by. Congrats to Donny, congrats to Cody running third. It's still a great result for our team."


Darrah, who won last year's feature at Autodrome Drummond, led the first 17 laps of Saturday night's A main. He said he moved around throughout the night looking for the right line.


"I was just kind of moving around," Darrah said. "From the start I felt pretty free and I was a little worried. As I brought my wing back to get my right rear on the track, when I had to slow down to move to the bottom I'd get myself tight... Back when I got to third Kerry made some mistakes and got off track and I was never able to capitalize but I love Drummondville. It's an awesome place to come to."


The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series continues its swing through Canada Sunday night at Cornwall Motor Speedway in Cornwall, Ont. The Outlaws then head Ohswheken Speedway on Tuesday, July 29 for the Six Nations Showdown.


AUTODROME DRUMMOND NOTES: Donny Schatz scored his 10th win of the season… Kerry Madsen picked up the quick time at Autodrome Drummond, his fourth of the year… Donny Schatz won the KSE Hard Charger Award after advancing four positions to win the feature… 2013 winner Cody Darrah won the dash and started on the pole for tonight's A main.

Chuck Hebing Captures Patriot Sprint Tour Season Sweep and $2,500 at Woodhull


Rich Vleck, WOODHULL, NY, (July 26, 2014)- Chuck Hebing has always been the dominant force when it comes to sprint car racing at Woodhull, winning in six of his 11 appearances at the high banks, but not until Saturday Night, has he won a bonus-paying summer race.


Hebing, of Ontario, NY, scored his seventh career win at the Woodhull Raceway in convincing fashion Saturday Night, earning his third Patriot Sprint Tour win of the season in as many starts.  It was also the 40th win in Patriot Sprint Tour action for the “Cobra” in the 225th race in series history.


“The car was good.  I started in the back and had to work my way up through,” noted Hebing in Victory Lane. “The lapped cars were definitely tough.  I like the new rule (where the lapped cars are moved to the back on restarts), tonight it helped other people too but it made for a good show in front of a good crowd and another win for Wilkins RV.”


After running second in his heat to Justin Barger, Hebing drew the seventh starting position for the feature but did not waste much time getting to the front.  By the time the field came around to complete the third lap, the No. 45 had moved up to the runner-up position.  The first caution of the event would fly on lap seven just as Hebing was closing in on early leader Jared Fink.  Fink had been solid from the outside pole but on the ensuing restart, Hebing got a solid run off the second corner and was able to execute a slide job on the No. 21F in turns three and four. 


The caution flag would reappear on lap nine and on that restart, Steve Collins would move around Fink for the second position and began to stalk the “Cobra”.  Both cars were rather even in speed throughout, but in the closing laps, as the duo navigated the lapped cars, Collins was able to put pressure on Hebing to make sure he hit his marks.


“I got a little safer on my approach to make sure I didn’t jump the cushion or get in to trouble in a lapped car, I have found that usually works out better for me at the end,” reflected Hebing after the event.


On the final lap, Hebing stretched his lead out to 10 car lengths and would hold on to claim the season sweep, as well as the $2,500 top prize, the biggest payday he has scored at Woodhull.


Collins would hold on for a runner-up finish, which would be his best career PST finish.  This was the first Patriot race for the “Flying Physician” since his first career feature win in non-sanctioned action last month and he was happy to stay hot and battle Hebing at a track just down the road from his Belfast, NY residence.


Justin Barger drove up to third in his first PST start of the year.  Barger, who had won this event the last two years, looked dominant in the heats, but got slowed up in the opening laps of the feature and finally got to third with four laps remaining.  One late caution may have given him a chance to threepeat.


One of the feel-good runs of the night was turned in by Jared Fink.  Despite running a limited schedule once again this year, Fink led for the first seven laps and ran solid the rest of the way, coming home in fourth.


The battle for fifth place was hotly contested throughout, prominently by Bryan Howland, Scott Kreutter and Jared Zimbardi, the three drivers to claim the last six PST America championships.  Howland, who also scored the win in the Evingham Site Excavation Four Laps of Fame, would drive up to claim the fifth spot.  Current PST point leader Jared Zimbardi would draw the pole position but struggled in the opening laps and would settle for sixth at arguably his most difficult race track.  Scott Kreutter won his heat race and would come home in seventh, a vast improvement from the May race when mechanical failures prohibited the 2012 series champion from qualifying.


Dave Just would drive forward to finish in eighth place, officially the best finish in his sprint car career.  Jamie Bodo would quietly drive forward to place in ninth, just ahead of George Suprick, who rounded out the top 10.


A concerning forecast never materialized thankfully as a huge crowd was treated to a pleasant night at a track that had an incredible surface all night long. With 27 sprint cars on hand, a B-Main was needed, which was won by Paul Habeck.  Heat wins would go to Barger, Kreutter and Brad Knab.

Daryn Pittman Charges to 11th Win of the Season at Fulton Speedway

Jessica Zemken scores best ever World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series finish

FULTON, N.Y. - July 23, 2014 - Daryn Pittman charged to his 11th win of the season Wednesday night at Fulton Speedway, as Sprakers, N.Y.-native Jessica Zemken scored her best ever World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series finish.


Pittman, who sits just 55 points out of the championship lead, said the win was the most uncomfortable he has had this season.

"I just knew we were going to get smoked," Pittman said in victory lane. "I honestly thought we were going to go from the lead to fourth or fifth in a lap. I just didn't know what to do. I was lost as a driver. The pace of the race just changed dramatically there."


"I was good on top in one and two and when I could run the top in one and two that really helped me hit the top in three and four."

Pittman said as he approached lapped traffic in his Great Clips #9, he noticed the cars were getting away from him.


"When I started running the bottom all the way around, I started making really bad laps in three and four on the bottom," he said. "I just kept waiting for somebody to show me their nose… It's an uncomfortable feeling as a driver when you're doing the wrong thing on the racetrack and you just don't know what to do. I was looking for the checkered about five laps before that and luckily it was just enough."


Pittman credited his crew chief Kale Kahne for making substantial changes after his dash win to give him the car he needed at the end of the feature.

Zemken said her Corr/Pak Merchandising team's third place finish means a lot - especially against the competition.


"It's like a win for us," she said. "To come here with the budget we have and the equipment that we have and be able to be here and be competitive with these guys - it's just awesome."


Zemken, who won her heat race earlier in the night and started the A main in sixth, said her experience at the track helped her understand how the surface would change throughout the night. She said she knew the bottom would be good later after the middle and top went away.

After losing her brakes with four to go, Zemken said she figured her night would be over.


"As soon as the brakes went to floor, I said this is what always happens," she said. "We have a good car, something bad's going to happen… They held up just enough to slow me down to be able to catch the bottom. And when I came up on Schatz I got underneath him a couple of times and I didn't even realize Saldana was a lapped car. I've got to say, that's the first time that I've been able to come around and lap Joey Saldana. I stuck behind him a little bit. I'll take third."


After winning the dash, Pittman started on the front row with David Gravel. As Pittman jumped out to an early lead, Gravel had his hands full with Cody Darrah. The two battled through the opening laps but Donny Schatz looked to take advantage in his STP/Armor All car. He got around Darrah by lap 10, as Gravel maintained the second position.


Farther back, Zemken was making her push forward, getting around Kraig Kinser in the fifth position and then taking the fourth spot from Darrah.

With less than 10 to go, Schatz got around Gravel for the second spot and set his sights on Pittman. As the A main entered its final laps and Pittman battled through lapped traffic, Schatz took one last look at Pittman.


Pittman took the checkered flag in first with Schatz second, Zemken in third, and after a drag race down the front stretch, Gravel in fourth and Darrah in fifth.

Schatz said he worked all night trying to find the right line on the track. He said he wished his team had been able to make a few more changes.

"I tried - that's all you can do," Schatz said. "The car was OK… We'll try harder next week."


The race for the championship remains tight between Pittman and Schatz. 55 points separate the two just past the halfway point of the season.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series crosses the border on Saturday for the start of a three race swing through Canada. Autodrome Drummond in Drummondville, Que., hosts the Outlaws on Saturday, July 26. The Outlaws then make stops at Cornwall Motor Speedway in Cornwall, Ont., on Sunday, July 27 and Ohswheken Speedway in Ohswheken, Ont., on Tuesday, July 29.


FULTON SPEEDWAY NOTES: Following his win, Daryn Pittman is 55 points out the championship lead… Donny Schatz, Jason Sides and Jessica Zemken all won their heat races at Fulton… David Gravel scored his sixth quick time of the season - the third most of any driver… Larry Wight was the KSE Hard Charger of the night, advancing five positions to finish in ninth.

Evingham Site Excavation to Sponsor a Pack of Patriot Sprint Tour Four Laps of Fame Dashes


Rich Vleck, ROCHESTER, NY, (July 22, 2014)- On the verge of the second half of the Patriot Sprint Tour season kicking off, a major area racing supporter has stepped up to bolster PST events down the stretch.


Evingham Site Excavation, of Bolivar, NY, has agreed with Patriot Sprint Tour management to sponsor the Four Laps of Fame Dashes at a host of tracks around their locations.  The first dash they will sponsor will be this Saturday at Woodhull Raceway.  They will also be sponsoring the three Labor Day Weekend events at Freedom Raceway, McKean County Raceway and Eriez Raceway, with additional sponsorship possible.  This is ESE’s first partnership with the Patriots, although their presence has been seen as a sponsor of Tyler Graves’ No. 25. 


Since 2008, Patriot Sprint Tour has been utilizing the dash portion of each race program not for cars in the front of pack but for those from ninth to 14th in passing points and has been met with great response.  Additionally, a season-long point fund has run in unison with Ohio’s Paige Polyak currently leading the standings over Brad Knab and Parker Evans.

March 13, 14, 15, 2015 at Toronto’s International Centre


TORONTO, ON (CANADA) • Inside Track Communications – publishers of Inside Track Motorsport News, Inside Motorcycles, MX & Off-Road and the producer of the Canadian Motorsports Expo – is now the owner / promoter of the traditional hot rod / classic car / motorsports show held in mid-March at Toronto’s International Centre, adjacent to Toronto’s Pearson Airport.


Known over the years as Motion Custom Car Show, Performance World and most recently MegaSpeed, the new show will be called the MOTORAMA Custom Car & Motorsports Expo. According to International Centre officials, this ‘show weekend’ traditionally attracts tens of thousands of automotive enthusiasts each year.


The inaugural MOTORAMA show will take place March 13, 14 and 15, 2015. It will fill approximately 225,000 square feet of the newly configured Halls 1 and 2 (formerly Halls 1, 2 and 3) at the refurbished International Centre.


MOTORAMA will be a three-day celebration of automotive culture and motorsports, featuring high quality hot rods, custom cars, racing vehicles of all kinds, classics, exotics, trucks, tuners, rat rods and more.


The new show will retain the popular qualities that made the Canadian Motorsports Expo (CME) so successful, and will expand that model out to incorporate all of the other parts of the automotive spectrum that will make up MOTORAMA.


These include: celebrity appearances, interesting and informative seminars and forums, awards ceremonies, car clubs, racetracks and series, showcar prizes, equipment manufacturers and suppliers, collectibles vendors, demonstrations, industry announcements and press conferences, and more.


In addition to the team that produced the CME, MOTORAMA’s management group includes some of the most respected names in the Canadian hot rod and classic car community. As was the case with the CME, MOTORAMA will be promoted via aggressive public relations, advertising and social media campaigns – all starting almost immediately – to let Canadian car and motorsports fans know about the new show.


“We’re honoured that the International Centre has given us the opportunity to assume the reins of their mid-March hot rod and classic car show,” said ITC’s David Weber. “Our goal with MOTORAMA is to restore this show to its past glory, while making sure that Canadian racing has the same high profile that it had at the Canadian Motorsports Expo. For the racing community, the mid-March date is better for them because it’s closer to the start of their season. And we’re looking forward to working with the many individuals and companies that are passionate about hot rods, custom cars, classics, tuners, etc. to make this show the best it’s ever been.”


Stay tuned for more news about MOTORAMA in the coming weeks and months. For info on becoming a show sponsor or exhibitor, please contact us at (416) 962-7223 or email info@motoramashow.com. The show’s website is www.MotoramaShow.com.

OAKS, PA July 23, 2014 . . . The Pioneer Pole Buildings Motorsports 2015 fueled by Sunoco Race Fuels and Distributed by Insinger Performance Race Car and Trade Show will celebrate its 30th anniversary on Friday, January 23 thru Sunday, January, 25th.


“It seems just like yesterday when we kicked off this show,” said show producer Len Sammons who has confirmed the events traditional date once again at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, PA.

We are very excited to have Pioneer, Sunoco, Insinger and Miller Beer all return to be part of what we feel will be one of the biggest show we have ever produced.”


All exhibitors from the 2014 edition of the show should have already received the new show brochure which reflects an exciting new floor plan that offers expanded space and a new design that will offer more room for interactive displays. The stage has been moved out of D-Hall into its own room. Other changes have been made to create a more consistent traffic flow throughout the main exhibit area.


The 2014 exhibitors have until July 31, 2014 to reserve the same display space or even increase their space for Motorsports 2015. Space reservations for past exhibitors must include a 25% deposit with the booth order. Past exhibitors that have had their past booth location impacted by the new floor layout or would like to change their display location should be in touch with Tim Hogue as soon as possible so that every effort can be made to accommodate that request.


After August 1st all space not reserved will be open to all.


“We are in the process of putting together some exciting plans for the 30th Anniversary,” said Sammons. “We will be making many announcements regarding plans for the show in the future.”


For those who have not been exhibitors or have missed a year or two the beautiful new show brochure is available along with a show floor plan by contacting Danny Sammons or Tim Hogue at 609.888.3618. They can also be reached at tim@aarn.com or danny@aarn.com.

Three Entering DIRTcar Modified HoF



WEEDSPORT, N.Y. – The DIRTcar Modified Hall of Fame and Classic Car Museum selection committee has announced their class of 2014.

This will be the 23rd year that the Hall of Fame has been in operation.


“Three modified drivers will be inducted this year,” stated selection chairman Gary Spaid. Included this year are Lloyd Hold, Charlie Rudolph and Mike Colsten.


Holt was among the many Canadian drivers to invade central and western New York. In the 1960’s Holt became a regular at the now defunct Waterloo Maple Grove Speedway. As the 60’s ended he added Rolling Wheels Raceway Park to his resume, where he was crowned the track champion in 1970, the first full season of weekly racing at the speedway.


Rudolph was also a track champion at Rolling Wheels, with his championship coming in 1986. In that same year he was crowned the overall Mr. DIRT Modified champion. Between 1980 and 1988 he accumulated a total of 49 feature wins on dirt and sits 31st on the all-time big-block feature winners list. Rudolph then ventured off to NASCAR, sponsored by Sunoco Race Fuels, running in the then Winston Cup division.


Colsten might best be remembers by Central New Yorkers as a late-model racer, running with Ford power. But in the Southern Tier, Colsten transferred his skills and talents to the modified division, winning the Five Mile Point track championship numerous times. He also became a regular modified competitor at Penn Can Speedway in Pennsylvania.


In addition to 2014 Hall of Fame class, Howie Commander will be honored with the Lenny H. Sammons Outstanding Service Award.

“We started the Lenny H. Sammons Outstanding Service Award back in 1993,” commented Spaid. “It was the first award we added to our inductions. Over the years we have been able to honor car owners, drivers, writers, webmasters, promoters and photographers with this award.”

Commander is best known for what he has accomplished at Lebanon Valley Speedway. He also has a hand in Albany-Saratoga and Orange County Fair speedways promotions. His resume includes drag racing promotions as well as being a major player in UMP racing. He is one of the most respected people in short track auto racing in general.


The Gene DeWitt Owner’s Award will go to Cliff Barcomb. Barcomb was one of the first to hire a Canadian driver, Davey Moore. This team came extremely close to winning the overall Mr. DIRT title in 1981. Cliff then teamed with C.D. Coville, winning some 30 races. He also had fielded a car for Sammy Swindell, who powered it to the pole during Super DIRT Week 1995.


The Mechanic Award goes to Bobby Hearn, who founded and created the TEO Chassis. Hearn, the brother of Brett Hearn, has been a dominate player in the modified chassis business for years.


This year there will be two Gater Racing Photo News Women in Racing Awards presented, with Robin Yasinsac Gillespie and Erica Bicknell-Jones taking the awards. Robin has been a media member covering Eastern New York racing, primarily at Lebanon Valley and Albany-Saratoga speedways. Bicknell-Jones is the general manager at the highly successful Merrittville Speedway.


This year’s induction ceremonies are scheduled to take place on Aug. 6, starting at 7 p.m. Tickets are not needed for this event, although seating is very limited.


The following night, Aug. 7, will be the Hall of Fame night at the newly revamped Weedsport Speedway. Featured on the program will be the return of the Super DIRTcar Series big block division. This will be the first time since July 17, 2011 that big blocks will have been racing at Weedsport. The track was closed and remained silent except for small block races during Super DIRT Week. The speedway is currently under the rebuilding process, as all of the grandstands, judges tower and club house have been knocked down.







The Lucas Oil ESS Championship will now be decided on Saturday night, Sept. 27 at the Rolling Wheels Raceway.

 The event will be a special double header with the Go Nuclear Late Model Series.

KNOXVILLE, IOWA (February 28, 2014) -  Casey’s General Stores has renewed its commitment to the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum by pledging $25,000 to the museum foundation’s “Expand the Dream” campaign.  The announcement was made this week by Casey’s General Stores president & CEO Robert J. Myers and museum executive director Bob Baker.  Said Bob Myers today, “Casey’s has been involved with the Museum since the very beginning and we are delighted to continue our involvement.”


According to Bob Baker, “The expression ‘since day one’ is sometimes over-used, but it definitely isn’t when referring to Casey’s commitment to the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum Foundation.  They have literally been involved from the days of our non-profit incorporation and the creation of our founding board of directors back in the mid-Eighties.  Their involvement has not just been ‘support’ from the outside, but it has been ‘commitment’ from the inside.  And, for that fact, we are truly appreciative.”


For more information on the 501(c)(3) non-profit National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum Foundation and its “Expand the Dream” campaign to raise money for a brand-new storage and staging facility and for increasing its overall endowment fund, please contact executive director Bob Baker at 641-842-6176.

USAC Silver Crown Series Joins ‘Racing’s Biggest Party’ during NAPA Super DIRT Week in October 2014 at N.Y. State Fairgrounds

Open-wheel stars join stout field of Super DIRTcar Series Big-Block Modifieds, DIRTcar 358-Modifieds, DIRTcar Sportsman Modifieds and DIRTcar Pro Stocks at Syracuse

SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Nov. 20, 2013 – Al Unser topped Mario Andretti and a field of open-wheel superstars the first time the USAC Silver Crown Series raced at the New York State Fairgrounds “Moody Mile” in 1974. Now, 40 years after that historic event, the USAC Silver Crown Series will return in October 2014 to Syracuse during the 43rd annual NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week.


The USAC Silver Crown Series will tackle the Mile on Saturday, Oct. 11, along with the showcase 150-mile event for the DIRTcar 358-Modified Series. The DIRTcar Sportsman Modified feature will shift to Sunday, Oct. 12, where it will join the DIRTcar Pro Stock event and the Super DIRTcar Series’ premier $50,000-to-win Syracuse 200.


“We’re excited to bring the Silver Crown Series back to Syracuse,” said USAC President Kevin Miller. “Super DIRT Week is such an historic event, and we are definitely looking forward to putting on a show for the passionate race fans that have been going there for more than 40 years.”

NAPA Super DIRT Week at the New York State Fairgrounds will kick off on Wednesday, Oct. 8, with a Big-Block Modified Happy Hour practice before Thursday’s qualifying runs for the Big-Blocks and 358-Modifieds. The USAC Silver Crown cars will hit the Mile on Friday afternoon for a practice session along with the Futures events, followed by “Friday Night Lights” featuring the Sportsman Modified Triple 10s, the 358-Modified Twin 20s and the Big-Block Modified Triple 20s.


All of that sets the stage for two huge days of racing Saturday and Sunday on the Mile.

“The USAC Silver Crown Series has a rich history at Syracuse, and we’re thrilled to welcome them back in 2014,” said World Racing Group CEO Brian Carter. “We’re always trying to enhance our events for our fans. We have incredible racing at Syracuse with the Big-Blocks, 358-Modifieds, Sportsman and Pro Stocks, now bringing the Silver Crown cars back to the Mile will make the week even bigger for everybody.”

The USAC Silver Crown Series last raced on the Syracuse Mile in 2003 during NAPA Super DIRT Week, with J.J. Yeley taking the checkered flag.

5 Alcohol-Burning Engine Maintenance Tips

With all the talk about ethanol and E85 lately, we thought it would be a good idea to revisit five important tips if you're considering making the switch away from gas


From the December, 2010 issue of Circle Track

By Rob Fisher


With all the talk about ethanol, methanol, and E85 in the pages of Circle Track recently, we thought it would be a good idea to revisit five important maintenance-oriented tips where these fuels are concerned.



1. Buy Weekly
Alcohol fuels are hygroscopic, which means over time they will start to absorb water, and this is never a good thing. Old methanol, for example, that has been sitting around the shop almost certainly will eventually experience this problem. While good storage practices go a long way in preserving any fuel, the easiest way to avoid a problem is to purchase only the amount you will use to go racing on a particular evening the day before the race. Granted you will be buying fuel every week, but at least you know it will always be fresh.



Drain the remaining alcohol, fill the fuel cell with gasoline, and run the engine. Once it starts to sputter and eventually dies you will know that the system has been flushed. Any traces of methanol can corrode the entire fuel system, which leads us to our next point.




Note-be extremely careful when handling methanol. It's easily absorbed through the skin, and prolonged exposure can lead to health issues. In the event that methanol does come in contact with your skin, wash the area thoroughly with soap and water.




5. Always Inspect the Bypass Valve
Sprint Car guys should all know this, but you should check the high-speed bypass valve on a regular basis. Most teams will work with this bypass valve to ensure that the engine is getting as much fuel as possible. They often change the "pill" and bypass valve to send more or less fuel to the engine.
