"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."

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!

WEEDSPORT, N.Y. – The 2015 Super DIRTcar Series schedule was completed Wednesday with the addition of a second event at Canandaigua Motorsports Park on July 2.

The Super DIRTcar Big-Block Modified event will be a doubleheader with the Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprint Series’ annual speedweek stop at the half-mile fairgrounds oval.

     Danny Willmes Enterprises to Sponsor Patriot Sprint Tour Lap Leader

 

Rich Vleck, ROCHESTER, NY, (March 21, 2015)- This offseason has been full of exciting sponsorship announcements for the Patriot Sprint Tour and with the start of the 2015 season just a handful of weeks away, another new partner has been added to the lineup, and not just for this year.

Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints Loyalty Program Announced: 2015 Will see the Largest Cash Payouts in History.

Hoosier Tires Also Providing Added Bonus at Each Full Point Event

By Dean Reynolds

 

SYRACUSE, NY – As the 2015, 32nd Anniversary Tour for the Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints (ESS) is just around the corner, race teams will be happy to see a brand new Loyalty Program announced.  With a new agreement in place, Hoosier Tires will also be adding to what will be the lucrative tour in ESS history.

 

The Loyalty Program will be given to any team that traveled to 90% of all the full point shows that will be run this season.  Any team that does so will receive $500 cash on top of all the point fund monies that they earned during the year.  It doesn’t matter where you finished in the points, if the car attended it will receive the bonus.

 

Last year, over $30,000 is cash was given away in the various point funds.  This year with increased sponsorships, that total will be exceeded and then the Loyalty Program will be added on top of that.

 

Also, Hoosier Tires will be giving away a free tire at each full point show as well.  To be eligible for the free tire, the race team will have to attend at least 2/3rds of the events up until that particular event.  A total of 28 tires could be given out during the season.

 

“The Loyalty Program is something we wanted to do for a while and with sponsorships increased we now are in a position to do so.” noted ESS President Chuck Miller. “We always reward teams that run 2/3rds of our shows and we will continue to do so.  The Program is to give a little extra to the teams that run the entire tour.  It’s open to any team whether you have run ESS in the past or not.  The same for the new Hoosier Tire bonus.”

 

Nightly purses and added bonuses are also the largest to be offered in the 33 years of the club.  Every event of the calendar but three will be at least $2,000 to win, $250 to start or more.  With sponsorship bonuses added, most nights will see well over $11,000 in cash paid out for each full point event. 

 

A special Mach 1 Spring Fling will be held on Saturday, April 11 at Selinsgrove Speedway for teams to get ready for the 2015 tour assault and also via for some top money.  Then on April 24 and 25, the Can-Am Motorsports Park and Mohawk Int’l Raceway will kick off the full point season with a pair of $2,000 to win events.

 

The weather is changing and the ESS teams are getting ready…The tradition continues of excitement guaranteed and it’s coming to a dirt track near you!!!

Penske Leads USAC Hall Of Fame Inductees

 
INDIANAPOLIS – The initial eight 2015 inductees into the USAC Hall of Fame have been announced and four more, selected by popular vote from a list of 16 eligibles distributed through social mediums, will be announced April 15.

The fourth annual USAC Hall of Fame induction ceremonies will be held July 25 at the Lincoln Tech Indianapolis Speedrome in Indianapolis, Ind., in conjunction with the inaugural “Tony Stewart Classic” Midget race.

The eight-member class of inductees announced today includes five drivers, two car owners and a chief mechanic. They are (alphabetically) Clint Brawner, Butch Hartman, Lindsey Hopkins, Jim Hurtubise, Fred Lorenzen, Roger Penske, Shorty Templeman and Sleepy Tripp.

Online voting for the final four 2015 inductees into the USAC Hall of Fame is now available on the USAC website at www.usacracing.com.

Brawner, of Phoenix, Ariz., was one of the most accomplished of all car builders and crew chiefs and won National driving titles as a car owner with drivers Jimmy Bryan (1954, 1956 and 1957) and Mario Andretti (1965, 1966 and 1969). He finally entered victory lane as the winning crew chief with driver Andretti in 1969, who piloted his Brawner Hawk to victory.

In all, he amassed 51 championship wins and his impressive driver list includes the likes of Bryan, Andretti, A.J. Foyt, Bob Sweikert, Roger McCluskey, Troy Ruttman, Rodger Ward and Eddie Sachs. Brawner’s cars won the first four Hoosier Hundreds with drivers Sweikert and Bryan and, in 1957, he won the 500-mile “Race of Two Worlds” at Monza, Italy with Bryan. Each May, a driver at Indianapolis receives the prestigious Clint Brawner Mechanical Achievement Award in his memory.

Hartman, of Zanesville, Ohio, won five USAC Stock car championships in the 1970s and, in 1968, became the first rookie driver ever to lead the Daytona 500. The 1966 USAC Stock car Rookie of the Year and 1967 Most Improved Driver, then won the first 500-mile stock car race held at Pocono, Pa Raceway in 1971. A frequent NASCAR competitor as well with some success, he was inducted into the National Dirt Late Model Hall of Fame in 2004. His total of USAC Stock Car victories was 29.

Hopkins, from Miami, Fla., fielded competitive National Championship cars for three decades, entering up to four cars on occasion at the Indianapolis 500. Never an Indy 500 winner, he appeared headed for that achievement in 1955 until his driver, two-time “500″ winner Bill Vukovich, perished in an accident while leading in an effort to score his third consecutive victory. In 1957 and 1959, Hopkins scored a second-place finish at Indy with driver Jim Rathmann.

In 1972, Roger McCluskey won the 1972 Ontario 500 in a Hopkins entry, and then earned the 1973 USAC National Championship in another Hopkins car. Championship wins also came for Hopkins at Phoenix, Ariz., Atlanta, Ga., Milwaukee, Wisc., Langhorne, Pa., Springfield, Ill. and Brooklyn, Mich. with drivers McCluskey, George Amick, Tony Bettenhausen, Bobby Marshman and Jim Rathmann. In 1959, Rathmann won a “special” Championship race for Hopkins at Daytona Beach, Fla.

Hurtubise, of North Tonawanda, N.Y., stood the racing world on its ears in 1960 when he flirted with the 150-mph. barrier at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. He was that year’s “500″ Rookie of the Year. National Championship wins came at Sacramento, Calif., Langhorne, Pa. and Springfield, Ill. (twice), before suffering serious burns in an accident at Milwaukee, Wisc. in 1964. He was the last driver to wheel a front-engined car in the Indy 500 in 1968.

A spectacular sprint car racer, he won 14 USAC features, including five in a row at the Terre Haute (Ind.) Action Track. Also an accomplished stock car veteran, he won the 1966 Atlanta 500 NASCAR race. In 1993 he was inducted into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame.

 

Lorenzen, of Elmhurst, Ill., was a 2015 inductee into the NASCAR Hall of Fame. The 1958 and 1959 USAC Stock Car Champion, he won 12 USAC features during his career. The 1965 Daytona 500 winner, he also won the 1963 and 1965 World 600 in Charlotte, N.C. Named one of NASCAR’s 50 greatest drivers, “Fearless Freddie” was inducted into the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America in 2001. He was also a multiple race winner at NASCAR ovals at Richmond and Martinsville, Va. In nine Daytona 500 starts, he finished out of the top-10 only once.

Penske, born in Shaker Heights, Ohio, has set the gold standard for car owners, winning a record 15 Indianapolis 500s. An astute businessman, he was USAC’s 1962 Road Racing Champion but his extensive motorsports involvement has earned the respect of everyone, earning numerous championships and race victories in multiple disciplines. A member of the International Motorsports Hall of Fame, the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America and numerous other Halls of Fame, the “Captain” actually competed in the 1961 and 1962 United States Grand Prix Formula One races.

His list of top-caliber drivers has included Indianapolis 500 winners Mark Donohue, Rick Mears, Bobby Unser, Danny Sullivan, Al Unser Sr. and Jr., Emerson Fittipaldi, Helio Castroneves, Gil DeFerran and Sam Hornish, Jr., plus Daytona 500 winners Ryan Newman and Joey Logano.

Templeman, who listed Washington as his home during his racing career, was USAC’s National Midget Champion in its first three seasons, 1956, 1957 and 1958. He scored 22 USAC Midget wins prior to his untimely death in a crash at Marion, Ohio in 1962. A multiple Midget racing champion in the northwest, he scored a “sweep” of the three features comprising the 1956 “Night Before the 500″ program in Indianapolis, Ind. Inducted into the National Midget Auto Racing Hall of Fame in its inaugural class of 1984, he competed in five Indianapolis 500s, earning a fourth-place finish in 1961. His best National Championship finishes came at DuQuoin, Ill. and Syracuse, N.Y. in 1961 where he was second.

Tripp, of Costa Mesa, Calif., scored more USAC Midget victories (total National and Regional) than anyone in history. His total of 161 lists him third on the all-time USAC list behind Rich Vogler (171) and A.J. Foyt (162). The 1986 inductee into the National Midget Auto Racing Hall of Fame won a pair of USAC National Midget titles (1975 and 1976) and seven championships in the Western Midget Series.

He also earned notoriety with his exploits to New Zealand, which resulted in numerous major race victories and championships, including an amazing nine wins in the prestigious 50-Lap Classic at Auckland. In 1985 and 1987, he also won the prestigious Belleville Midget Nationals in Kansas. In addition to his United States and New Zealand successes, his career also included victories in Australia and Canada.

THE CRASH PAD...helps you slow down when you need to the most. In a crash, when the frame stops, the seat stops and a vertical drop will compress you against the rigid seat bottom. The weight of your body, head and helmet come down on your spine like a pile driver causing spinal injury, broken back, broken neck, compression fractures, ruptured disks, nerve damage, severe back pain and possibly paralysis. It’s the most serious common injury in short track racing. The CRASH PAD slows your downward motion with compressible space and uniform resistance to reduce spinal impact forces. Be smart, be prepared, put a CRASH PAD between you and a hard landing. Find much more information, a list of Dealers and secure Online Ordering at www.802solutions.com.

 

 

 

 

Green Mountain Sprint Car Nationals Coming to The Dirt Track at Devil’s Bowl in Vermont

— Sprint Car racing history will be made in Vermont as The Dirt Track at Devil’s Bowl Speedway hosts a blockbuster open-competition event – the inaugural “Green Mountain Sprint Car Nationals” – on Saturday, September 26. The new 1/3-mile clay oval is set for a showdown featuring the region’s most fearless racecar drivers and their lightning-quick, winged, open-wheel machines.

The Green Mountain Sprint Car Nationals will be the richest Sprint Car race in Vermont history and is expected to draw the region’s top teams. The purse boasts a $3,000 winner’s prize and a minimum of $300 to start.

The event is co-sanctioned by the Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints (ESS) and the Bond Auto Parts Sprint Cars of New England (SCoNE), but is open to any winged Sprint Car with a 360-cubic-inch engine limit.

SCoNE champion Chris Donnelly of Piermont, NH became the first Sprint Car winner at The Dirt Track at Devil’s Bowl last fall. Other top SCoNE racers include Dan Douville, Clay Dow, Kevin Chaffee, Luke Greenwood, Jake Williams, Tyler Austin, and SCoNE president Will Hull.

 Front-running ESS drivers include Chuck Hebing, Jason Barney, Jeff Cook, Matt Tanner, and Cory Sparks, along with Canadians Lee Ladouceur and 2014 champion Steve Poirier. A family rivalry is also expected between SCoNE’s Lacey Hanson and her cousin, ESS competitor James Hanson, who are each based in Orwell, VT just 10 minutes from Devil’s Bowl.

“I think the Green Mountain Sprint Car Nationals will be something special,” ESS promoter Dean Reynolds said. “We’ll see the best of both series, and I bet a few Canadian teams will come to Devil’s Bowl for the great purse being offered. We can’t wait for this race.”

“I’m excited and anxious to bring together all of the region’s top Sprint Car teams for the first time,” SCoNE president and competitor Will Hull said. “We had a great time at Devil’s Bowl last fall and I really think this is going to be a race to remember.”

 

Our fans are going to see a wild show at the Green Mountain Sprint Car Nationals,” Devil’s Bowl promoter Mike Bruno said. “Dean Reynolds of ESS and Will Hull from SCoNE deserve a lot of credit for putting this event together. It’ll be exciting to see how the best from each series stack up against each other.”

The inaugural Green Mountain Sprint Car Nationals will be held on Saturday, September 26, with additional details to follow. Drivers will also have two additional opportunities to compete at The Dirt Track at Devil’s Bowl, as SCoNE holds stand-alone events on Sunday, July 5 and Sunday, August 9.

Devil’s Bowl Speedway is located on Route 22A in West Haven, VT, four miles north of Exit 2 on U.S. Route 4. For more information, visit www.DevilsBowlSpeedwayVT.com or call (802) 265-3112.
