Ruggles take checkered flag
in 5th show of 2013 season
Canandaigua, NY – May 18, 2013 – Dave Roberts, Canandaigua Motorsports Park PR
Darryl Ruggles pulled off his first win in the Castner Performance 305 Sprints,
winning the 20-lap feature and making history in the process. Ruggles passed his
daughter Alysha on lap nine and went on for the win. Alysha held on for second,
making it the first time a father-daughter combination finished in the top two
positions in any feature in the history of Canadaigua Motorsports Park.
“It’s been four years since we had won here,” Ruggles said afterwards. “When we
last won, we did that in a micro-sprint.”
Ruggles also talked about sharing the podium with Alysha.
“It’s a dream come true. I wish she could’ve won it.”
Ruggles has driven at Canandaigua Motorsports Park for several years and figures
that he’s won features here in seven different divisions.
“This is a great place, I love it here. The car was perfect tonight. I was
forced to run on the outside lane and we were fast out there.”
Third was Paul Habeck followed by the father-son combination of Todd Henderson
and Justin Henderson.
Darryl explained why it took five weeks to get the car into CMP victory lane.
”We know this car now. We’ve spent countless hours learning it. We talked to a
lot of people who know these cars. It helped us.”
Racing in the month of May at Canandaigua Motorsports Park closes out on
Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend when A-Verdi Storage Containers presents a

Styres Opens Southern
Ontario Sprints Season With A Win At Brighton Speedway
By Greg Calnan – A solid field of 23 cars arrived at Brighton Speedway
for the first race of the 2013 Southern Ontario Sprints season. At the end
of the 20 lap feature the near capacity crowd was left with a memorable
finish as teammates Glenn Styres, Jamie Collard and Keith Dempster swept the
“It’s something we’ve always wanted to do” said Styres. “To have all three
cars in the top three was awesome.”
Collard and Dempster led the 22 car field to the green flag and in the
opening laps it was the outside line that had the advantage. Dempster would take
the early lead while fourth place starter Styres worked around the pole sitter
and into second. By lap five the lead duo were nose to tail for the top spot.
Just two laps later Styres would make his move to the inside of the second
corner and took command of the race.
Through the middle portion of the feature the battle for the runner-up
position was hotly contested. Dempster used the high line to his advantage and
held off several challenges Collard. The bottom lane would eventually pay off
though and Collard slipped by and into second with just a couple of laps
Lapped traffic would make things interesting in the final two laps as Collard
was able to close within striking distance of leader Styres. The two were wheel
to wheel through the second corner on the final lap, however a last attempt dive
into corner three would not stick for the Burford, Ontario native and Styres was
able to hold on for the win. Collard would settle for second with Dempster
Mitch Brown, Warren Mahoney and Travis Cunningham spent much of the race
fighting over the 4th position. In the end Brown would claim the
sport over Mahoney while Cunningham would fail to finish.
After fuel pick-up problems kept Charlie Sandercock from starting his
qualifying heat the hometown favourite impressed by gaining 13 positions on his
way to a 9th place finish.
The race was slowed by a pair of yellow flags with 20 of the 22 starters
completing the event.
The win for Styres marked his second of the weekend after claiming the
victory one night earlier in the Ohsweken Speedway season opener.
The next stop for the Southern Ontario Sprints comes on Saturday, June 8th
as the tour returns to Brighton Speedway for round two of the 2013 schedule.

built especially for him by Trac Fabrication of nearby Volant, PA. Steinman's
chair was made possible by a grant from the Steven King Foundation and the
generosity of the racing community. In a show of love and support, the racers

heat races, it was number 24. "I just had that feeling that we would win that
one for Cowboy," said the veteran car owner. It was her first win since 2009,
when Mike Lutz took the purple and white colors to victory lane. Priester was
greeted by Steinman when he came across the track to do his post-race interview.
He dedicated the win to his friend.

TJ Stutts Scores $3,000 Lucas Oil
ESS/Mach1 Payday at Selinsgrove Speedway
By MIKE MALLETT
PA - Home field advantage came into play on
Saturday night as the Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints (ESS) invaded the
Selinsgrove Speedway for the first time since 1996, 17 years exactly to the
day. A strong field of cars was on hand for the Mach1 Chassis Spectacular,
Today’s Optical Stars and Stripes tour event but it was the speedway regulars
that took center stage.
Track regular, TJ Stutts, utilized his knowledge
of the speedway to win the 25-lap A-Main which scored him a $3,000 payday. The
win was his first of the season at the track and his first ever win with the
“It is very important for us to run like that,”
said Stutts who also finished second in the 358 Sprint Car feature. “To come
out of here with $3,900 is a good night for a limited racer.”
Stutts, of Liverpool, Pa., used a mid-race pass to
get by Jeff Cook and then he battled his way through traffic while holding off a
hard-charging Pat Cannon for his first win of the season at the half-mile
Dave Ely and Cook made up the front row for the
start of the feature with Cook using his outside starting position to win the
race off the second turn to the lead. He led lap one with Ely holding strong in
Cook opened up the advantage on Ely and then
Stutts as he moved into second on the third circuit. Like Cook, Stutts utilized
the outside of the speedway to take over second and he stayed there as he worked
to track down Cook.
As the race neared the halfway point, Cook found
himself in slower traffic while Stutts was able to pull to the back bumper.
Stutts stalked Cook looking for a way by in traffic.
“I knew I had one shot at him with the tires,”
said Stutts. “Even in lapped traffic you had to be careful. This place is a
lot of fun when it gets big and wide like that because you can move around.”
On lap 15 Stutts made his move as he raced low
then high in turns one and two to secure the race lead in traffic. Cook tried
to stay with Stutts but he proved to be too strong and pulled away.
“We were in cruise control there because we were
scared to death because we had to run a really soft left rear tire and we abuse
them normally here,” commented Stutts. “We got to lapped cars and I saw my
chance so I had to fly him.”
Stutts led while Cannon worked his way forward
after starting the feature from the sixth row. Cannon briefly got to Stutts in
traffic as he ran the bottom groove but he never mounted a serious charge.
Stutts made a couple of nifty moves to clear
traffic and he led the closing laps to hold off Cannon for the large payday.
finished in the runner-up position. He simply ran out of time to mount a
serious challenge on Stutts.
“So many guys that never raced here I thought we’d
have a caution,” commented Cannon. “It never came and I really beat up my left
rear tire but it was still a really good run.”
Cannon started the feature from 11th
and worked his way forward. He was able to work both the top and bottom of the
speedway to get to the second spot.
“Any time you start back there and you got good
cars in front they kind of get away from you and you have to chase them down,”
stated Cannon. “You have to be that much faster to reel them in. I thought we
were gaining on him (Stutts) and then he got around a lapped car and my tire
gave up a little bit.”
Mark Smith advanced from the outside of row four
to finish in third. Without a caution Smith wasn’t able to get to Cannon or
Stutts to challenge for a top two finish. Smith was saving his tire for late in
the race for
“I was trying to keep the tire underneath me and
hoping for a caution,” said Smith. “Then I was going to go but we never got
one. From where we started it’s pretty good so I’ll take it.”
Robbie Stillwaggon passed two cars exiting the
fourth turn to finish in fourth while Cook, who led early, held on to complete
the top five. Rounding out the top ten were Justin Barger, Ely, defending ESS
champion Chuck Hebing, Jason Barney and Kevin Ward Jr.
Notes: With the first full point
show in 17 years, no less than 9 different drivers made their first ever ESS
starts…Dave Axton was a flip victim during heat one, he was OK. What was ironic
was that it was the only time a yellow/red flag was displayed on the entire
night…ESS will return to the famed half-mile on Sat. Sept. 28 as a part of the
Mach 1 National open which pays $8,000 to win…Next weekend it’s the traditional
Memorial Day Weekend stops at Fonda for the $2,000 Earl Halaquist Memorial and
then to Utica-Rome on Sunday.

TRAXXAS USAC "Hall of Fame" Silver Crown race at Lucas Oil Raceway has been
cancelled due to the extended timetable of "Pole Day" qualifying
events at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the potential threats of
thunderstorms in the area. USAC recognizes the historical significance of
today's motorsports events and is disappointed to cancel this race but numerous
participants in tonight's program, including the Hall of Fame ceremonies, are
also involved at IMS and those ceremonies would have been severely impacted.
Unstable weather in the midwest also has created thunderstorm possibilities for
the area. Options for rescheduling are being discussed and will be announced
when they become firm.5/18
The forecast of 50% steady rain throughout Saturday
night, forced the cancellation of the Rislone URC Sprint Series
event at the Delaware International Speedway. The decision to cancel was made at
1:15 PM by Charlie Cathell. URC and Cathell are currently reviewing the schedule
to re-schedule the event. URC’s next event is set for Saturday night, June 1 at
the New Egypt Speedway in New Egypt, NJ. The following week, URC will be in
action at the Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, June 7 and on Saturday
night, June 15, URC will be in action at the Grandview Speedway. For more

Speedway kicked off its 18th season with a familiar face in victory lane as
Glenn Styres collected his 4th career opening night win at the
3/8 mile clay oval. Styres started the Corr/Pak Merchandising Sprint Car
feature on the inside of the second row and jumped to an early lead. The
race was halted once for a red flag after Todd Hoddick took a wild tumble in
turn one. When the race resumed Styres cruised to the win despite nose wing
damage. Chris Steele and Mitch Brown rounded out the top three.

Want to run an Indy car at the Speedway this
month? Open your wallet
To play, you'll pay $650,000 up
Buddy Lazier and his supporters bought a year-old race car for more
than $300,000 for this Indianapolis 500, but they had to hire people
to secure and organize the equipment necessary to participate this
month at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
It was no small endeavor,
especially at the last minute. And while everyone associated with the
500 wants to see more participants, it’s a costly venture.
The figure to participate this
month starts at about $650,000 and increases considerably from there.
Commit to a full program — with crash damage built in — and the number
soars to seven figures, and that’s assuming there’s already a car in
All teams have a price, and they
know it because they write checks for IndyCar’s entry fees, send money
to engine and tire manufacturers, and pay crews, buy uniforms, prepare
food and host corporations whose sponsorship makes the wheels turn.
The cost to join teams owned by
Roger Penske, Chip Ganassi, Michael Andretti, Bobby Rahal and A.J.
Foyt can be more than others due to their brand equity.
There’s a lot to it.
“So Buddy gets a car,” said Eric
Bachelart, whose race team is fielding Lazier’s No. 91 entry. “But
then you have to go find all the things to make this happen.”
That’s what Bachelart was doing
Sunday in Gasoline Alley ... finding support equipment, lining up
people to turn the wrenches, obtaining the latest bodywork pieces to
make the car competitive.
“A lot of stuff,” he said.
Sam Schmidt has a financial
number in mind to allow his extra car — No. 99 — to participate,
although he won’t share it publicly and likely modifies the figure
depending on the driver to whom he’s talking. But Schmidt also has the
same fixed costs as other IndyCar team owners.
The entry fee is $12,000,
plus another $2,000 for the electronics package. Fuel for the month is
Thirty-three sets of Firestone
tires is the maximum. Firestone officials don’t reveal costs, but
three teams said they pay $2,600 a set, which makes the bill $85,800.
A one-engine program, like
Lazier is on, is $125,000. Most teams pay $225,000 for the full month.
Wheel guns to change tires are
$5,000 apiece, with four and a spare standard per car. Setup tables
come to $12,000, gears another $44,000.
“You’ve got to do all that
stuff,” Michael Andretti said.
Go-karts coming to Walden Galleria
The Walden Galleria’s most
recently announced tenant isn’t a restaurant or a retail outlet, it’s a
go kart track.
Pole Position Raceway
is revving up to open by the end of the year. The indoor racetrack
features electric go karts that can speed up to 45 miles per hour.
Patrons race side by side, competing against one another for first-,
second- and third-place medals.
Nearby is a full arcade and
space for private parties and corporate events. The entertainment
complex will occupy 40,000 square feet on the mall’s second floor across
from Regal Cinemas.
Local franchisees Eyal Farage
and Karen Davis-Farage run locations in New Jersey and Syracuse. There
are six other locations in California, Texas, Nevada, Oklahoma and
Missouri. The chain was founded in Southern California in 2005 by
motocross racers Ken Faught and Jason Williams.
NATIONAL SPRINT CAR HALL OF FAME (NSCHoF) INDUCTION
BANQUET TAKING SHAPE
AS INDUCTEES & GUESTS CONFIRM THEIR
IOWA (May 8, 2013) – The twenty-fourth
annual National Sprint Car Hall of Fame (NSCHoF) induction banquet, set for
Saturday afternoon, June 1,
is taking shape as 2013 inductees, family members,
friends and special guests are beginning to confirm their attendance. Dave Argabright and Pat Sullivan will again emcee the affair which will be held in
the Dyer-Hudson Hall on the Marion County Fairgrounds in Knoxville.
According to National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum Foundation executive
director Bob Baker, “We know for a fact that all four living inductees, Brad
Noffsinger, Jeff Bloom, Richard Hoffman and Jean Lynch, will all be here
in-person to accept their honors. In addition, we know that the families of
deceased inductees Charles ‘Dutch’ Baumann, Art Bisch (Sr.), Andy Linden, Lou
Blaney, Harold ‘Red’ Lempelius, and Edd Sheppard will be here to accept on
behalf of their loved ones. And, lastly, we know that we will have
representatives here to accept on behalf of the late C.W. Van Ranst and the late
E.A. ‘Ernie’ Moross. Plus, Friday night will include a fun and informal special
reception for past inductees on the museum’s second floor. If you love sprint
car racing and its history, you will want to join us in Knoxville on Friday, May
31, and Saturday, June 1.”
wishing to acquire twenty-five-dollar ($25) banquet tickets, just as past NSCHoF
inductees Lynn Paxton, Lanny Edwards, Ray Lee Goodwin, Bobby Ward, Ralph

Lancaster has new name
seasons it seems the name of the racing facility in Lancaster, known the
last few years as Dunn Tire Raceway Park
undergoes a name change. From it’s original opening as
Lancaster Speedway in 1959 to the later
years where it has been know as Lancaster Speed
World, Lancaster Raceway Park
and Lancaster Motorsports Park,
the name of the duel drag racing/stock car track has been forever changing.
It has changed again for 2013 to Elegant Builders
Raceway Park or EBRP.
Tire did not renew its track naming rights sponsorship agreement, track
promoter Ralph Galluzzi searched and found another naming rights sponsor in
the form of local businessman/racer Don King and his Elegant Builders
company, based in East Aurora .
“Ralph and I
were talking a few months ago and I was interested in knowing how I could
help the track,” said King. “At first it was kind of weird because I was
just thinking about doing some advertising with the track and then the next
thing you know the conversation ended up a few months ago with me forming a
three-year deal with Ralph to have the track’s naming rights.
“I think it
will be a win-win for both of us because I can get much more exposure for my
business and Ralph will have some extra money for the track.”

EMPIRE STATE TQ MIDGET SERIES
The TQ Midget class has a long history in Western
New York dating back several decades. None more so prevalent then at the Dunn
Tire Raceway Park, which was formerly known as Lancaster Speedway. With a new
change in name in 2013 for the Dunn Tire Raceway Park to the
Elegant Builders Raceway Park, it was also
time for a new change in the TQ Midget community. A new series was born, the
Empire State TQ Midget Series.
With a new modern up to date and simplified rule package then what’s been run
in Western New York in recent years, the racing with the ESTQMS is on track to
be faster, safer, and more importantly more exciting then years past. One
major rule for the ESTQM Series will be the introduction of fuel injection for
the 750cc TQ engines. Fuel injection has been run on the TQ midgets in several
other TQ midget series nation wide, and will be an exciting new addition to
the TQ midgets in the region.
Afterhours Imaging LLC has stepped up as
the primary sponsor for the ESTQM Series.
Combined with the track payout at the EBRP, drivers will be guaranteed at
least $400 to win and $100 to take the green flag in the A-Main for last place
making it one of the highest weekly TQ midget purses nation wide. In the event
the purse structure is changed, the race committee for the ESTQM Series will
notify the racers well in advance to the event and will be posted on any ESTQM
press releases. The ESTQM Series is also currently in negotiations with
another possible two huge sponsors that could add even more pay out for the
drivers in the ESTQM Series.
So where and when do we get to see these cars run in 2013? The ESTQM Series
has already set and confirmed 13 dates at the EBRP, and is still in the
process of confirming several other dates with other tracks. The season kicks
off May 4th at the EBRP in Lancaster, NY and will conclude September 21st with
the annual US Open at the EBRP.
A major highlight of the ESTQM Series will be the return to television for the
TQ midgets. The ESTQM Series will be broadcasting one of its events this year
on the Time Warner Cable Sports channel. Time Warner Cable Sports network can
be viewed in the Buffalo/Rochester area on channel 13 and 26, Central New York
on channels 21, 23, 26, 43, and 102, as well as channel 3 in the Albany New
York region. A preliminary date of September 21st has been set for the
Fifteen full time drivers have confirmed for the 2013 season with several
others running part time. You will also see several other big named drivers of
different classes sitting behind the wheel of a TQ midget for the ESTQM Series
in 2013 from both the asphalt and dirt side of racing. The ESTQM Series will
also be having several other events to gain interests and promote the class at
several car shows and other sporting events in and around the Lancaster, NY

CAOSS Announces 2013 Official
Time to make it official, the Can Am Outlaw Sprint series
releases their schedule for teams and fans to follow this season. In this
inaugural season, the series will visit five different tracks in two provinces
and one state. Eight events are scheduled over four separate week end. The
showcase of this first season is a super ‘’sprintacular‘’ three date week end
in August for what could be, the first ever Canadian Triple Crown.
CAOSS representatives have worked hard to come up
with a very affordable touring sprint series for eastern Canadian sprinters. A
place of their own, eight events along the St-Lawrence seaway, seven on
Canadian soil and one event in N.Y. state, most of all a championship of their
own. This strip of the St-Lawrence seaway has produced some of the best
sprinters in Canada. The likes of Steve ‘’ fireball ‘’ Poirier, Rick ‘’ the
joyceville jet ‘’ Wilson, Alain Bergeron and Lee Ladouceur have thrilled fans
over the years. Other rising stars are emerging from the same scene, Michael
Parent, Patrick Vigneault, Tyler Rand and Paul Pekkonen to name a few.
Eastern sprinters will perform at exceptional racing
facilities, all the racetracks on the circuit stand with the outmost respect
in the dirt racing world. State of the art installations, premiere track
preparation and outstanding safety records are just a few of their qualities.
Canadian sprinters deserve the best tracks possible and fans deserve the best
Canadian sprinters there is out there .
With nearly 20 sprint cars in Québec and a dozen or so
in the Brockville Cornwall area, add the odd 5 or 6 American teams along the
seaway and you have a very interesting pool of wing warriors. When adding
these local teams to the visiting series on the schedule, you get an
impressive sprint car show. The kind of show that leaves fans, racers and
eastern track promoters will thrill their race fan with the highest sprint car
competition level available from a touring series in Canada. Sprinters will be
rewarded with strong purse and fans with sprintacular action ..!

CHANGES AT PARADISE SPEEDWAY,
GARY PALONE IS BACK IN
Wyoming County and Flamboro Speedway Starting Sprint Car Divisions
Story by Scott Larson
N.J. (March 10, 2013) - Wyoming County (N.Y.) International Speedway and
Flamboro (ON) Speedway are developing a new Winged Sprint Car division. The
tracks will each start with five events in 2013 with plans to expand the
schedule in 2014.
“We have set five exposition dates at Wyoming County Speedway for this season to
draw interest from the fans and drivers," said George Quintana. “The rules will
be open to any type of engine and open to both dirt and pavement cars. This will
make it easier for the dirt teams to give it a try or for anyone to put an
engine in an inexpensive roller. The main intention is to make wing sprint cars
a full time class in 2014. The rules will be set in place at that time to fit
the local demographics.”
Wyoming County International Speedway, known as “The Bullring”, is located in
Flamboro Speedway, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, is
also planning to run five Wing Sprint Car events with the same rules
package. The two tracks are working together to create an
international 10 race series. Both facilities are approximately 2

Wing sprint cars made a big splash in New York State last year when the
TRUFUEL Must See Racing Xtreme Sprint Series (MSRXSS) had inaugural
events at Oswego and Shangri-La Speedways. Jason Cox and Jojo Helberg set new
track records each night surpassing the previous super modified records.

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
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.
racers have chosen methanol for a variety of reasons, including the fact
that properly tuned alcohol engines make more power and methanol burns
cooler. Most of the time, racing methanol is 99 percent pure methanol, as
opposed to its close cousin ethanol, which is 85 percent ethanol and 15
percent gasoline, and known commonly as E85.
added increase in horsepower is good, the downside of running an alcohol
fuel is a bigger workload to ensure that it doesn't corrode and harm your
engine. There are many aspects that need to be looked at when running
alcohol but we have narrowed down the five most important.
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 it After Every Race
Methanol or any alcohol is extremely corrosive, and leaving it in the fuel
system can degrade the parts, like the fittings and seals in the carburetor.
In order to avoid this potentially costly situation you must flush the fuel
system as soon as possible after the race.
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
Complete Off-Season Teardown
Most teams using gasoline may or may not perform a complete fuel-system
teardown, but with alcohol it is mandatory. As we said, these fuels are
extremely corrosive and will corrode everything including the foam in the
fuel bladder. Let it sit all winter and you'll have nothing but an empty
container come spring.
the entire fuel system and inspect the fuel bladder, lines, carburetor, and
pump. If there is any evidence of corrosion or wear, you need to replace
that particular piece.
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.
Don't Ignore the Carb
Alcohol is great at producing power, but it will eat away at your
carburetor. The carburetor needs to be gone through every four to five
months (depending on your racing schedule), which is the perfect time to
have a basic rebuild performed. This is especially true if you forget to run
gasoline through your engine after a race.
particular, evaporates quickly and will leave a residue inside the
carburetor that is similar to sand. Think about that the next time you fire
your engine-you could be sucking all that sand-like residue into the motor.
5. Always Inspect the Bypass
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.
have the bypass valve out of the car, look for the residue mentioned in tip
No. 4. If you discover it, flush the entire fuel system before firing the
tips and you're on your way to trouble-free alcohol racing.

Every progression in the sport is owed a
debt to the roots and foundation, and we honored
five past racers that made
significant contributions locally to the sport we all love. The inaugural
class will consist of five pioneering racers from
the 70's era and were inducted in the 2010
on January 15th 2011.
Inductees: Mike Robinson,
Dave Robinson, Mike Lauterborn,
Bill Scheemaker, Roy Janson
WNYRacing is dedicated to honoring the
many great people from our region who
have been an inspiration to others and we look forward to sharing their
accomplishments with our racing community and the next generation of MotoStars.
