"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."

NAPA Auto Parts to Sponsor US Tour 2015.

By Dean Reynolds

 

SYRACUSE, NY – In a major sponsorship announcement, NAPA Auto Parts has become the title sponsor of the Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints (ESS) US events point fund. Each full point show run in the US will carry separate points and the top 15 in the final tally will share from the lucrative point fund by NAPA.

 

NAPA has over 6100 stores nationwide with hundreds here in the home of ESS, NY State.  The NAPA name has been recognized as the title sponsor of Super DIRT Week which enters its fourth year of backing in 2015.

 

“Having the NAPA brand and logo joining ESS is a huge boost for our organization.” Noted ESS President Chuck Miller.  “NAPA has been a trusted name and motorsports backer for decades and we can not be more thrilled that they have chose to help us out in a big way.”

More than 85 years ago, the National Automotive Parts Association ("NAPA") was created to meet America’s growing need for an effective auto parts distribution system.  Today, 91% of do-it-yourself customers recognize the NAPA brand name.  Please log on to www.napaonline.com for your NAPA Know How!

You can also find a full line of Lucas Oil Products at your local NAPA Auto Parts Store!

 

Not only will NAPA be the US point fund sponsor, but look for many exciting promotions during the season for ESS teams and fans.  The NAPA Store of the race will also be announced where racing fans, crews and teams can stop on their way to a particular ESS event.

 

The Lucas Oil ESS season is right upon us, the 32nd Anniversary Tour will be the most lucrative in the history of the 360 organization.  It promises also to be one of the most competitive as well with the tradition of excitement guaranteed continuing!

Final USAC HoF Inductees Confirmed

 

INDIANAPOLIS – USAC’s recent social media poll to complete the 2015 list of inductees into the USAC Hall of Fame has resulted in inductions for drivers Jimmy Caruthers, Sheldon Kinser and Larry Rice and car owner Don Kenyon.

The four inductees received the most votes from a select list of 16 candidates and will join eight previously-announced inductees in the ceremony which accompanies the July 25 “Tony Stewart Classic” Midget race at the Lincoln Tech Indianapolis Speedrome in the racing capital.

Previously-announced 2015 inductees include (alphabetically) Clint Brawner, Butch Hartman, Lindsey Hopkins, Jim Hurtubise, Fred Lorenzen, Roger Penske, Shorty Templeman and Sleepy Tripp.

Caruthers excelled in USAC’s National Championship, Silver Crown and Midget series. He captured the National Midget title in 1970 and five years later (1975) won the Silver crown title before his untimely death due to cancer near the end of that year. He scored 21 Midget wins and made 43 Indy car starts, including four Indianapolis 500s. His best finish at Indy was a ninth in 1972.

He had 21 top-10 Indy car finishes, including seconds in a 500-mile race in 1974 at Pocono, Pa., and a 100-miler at Ontario, Calif., the same year. His father Doug and brother Jimmy also earned USAC National championships. He was honored for many years with an annual award presented to members of the racing fraternity – the Jimmy Caruthers Award. He was inducted into the National Midget Auto Racing Hall of Fame in 1992.

Kinser became one of USAC’s most revered sprint car champions. Winning USAC titles in 1977, 1981 and 1982 he compiled 37 feature wins, including the 1981 Tony Hulman Classic in Terre Haute, Ind. The cousin of legendary Sprint driver Steve Kinser, he was inducted into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame in 1992. He made a half-dozen starts in the Indianapolis 500 and was sixth in his final start in 1981. One of his keystone victories came in the 1985 Hoosier Hundred USAC Silver Crown race in Indianapolis, Ind. He died of cancer in 1988.

Larry Rice was one of USAC’s finest ambassadors, claiming National Championships in the Silver Crown (1977 and 1981) and Midget series (1973). A 1993 inductee into the National Midget Auto Racing Hall of Fame, Larry won 15 USAC Midget races in addition to five Silver Crown and three Sprint features. He passed away in 2009 after a bout of cancer. After a stint as a school teacher, he worked his way to the pinnacle of auto racing and in 1978 shared the Indianapolis 500 Rookie of the Race honors with Rick Mears after his 11th-place finish.

He eventually became the color analyst for ESPN’s Saturday Night Thunder program which featured USAC racing events. He also worked for K & K Insurance, specializing in motorsports insurance. His major victories included wins in the 4-Crown Nationals at Eldora Speedway, the Hut Hundred midget race at Terre Haute, Ind., and the 1981 Hoosier Hundred Silver Crown race at Indianapolis.

Kenyon, the brother of USAC’s winningest National Midget driver of all time, owns nine USAC championships of his own as a championship car owner. His 92 victories as an owner stand third in the all-time USAC record book. The mastermind behind many of his brother Mel’s 111 USAC National Midget wins, Don has somewhat silently built a legendary career of his own and has earned the respect of the entire racing fraternity.

His contributions to the sport are legendary and in 1998 he was inducted into the National Midget Auto Racing Hall of Fame. In addition to being his brother’s crew chief for four top-five Indianapolis 500 finishes, he also was Bob Harkey’s crew chief for his eighth place finish in 1974. He also served as a USAC Board Member for many years. Don’s brother Mel was inducted into the USAC Hall of Fame in 2012.

 

 

 

STYRES FAMILY, SOS, & GIBERSON HEADLINE INAUGURAL "WALL OF FAME" CLASS

by Tommy Goudge (April 16, 2015) - Ohsweken, Ontario - Ohsweken Speedway officials are pleased to announce the inaugural class of inductees for the Ohsweken Speedway Wall of Fame.

The Styres Family, the Southern Ontario Sprints club, and Mike "Pinball" Giberson will be honoured on Wall of Fame Night on Friday, June 12 as Ohsweken Speedway celebrates the past, and looks forward to the future during the track's 20th season of racing.

Led by brothers Glenn and Curt, the Styres family founded and built Ohsweken Speedway, officially opening it for business on June 16, 1996. Along with Glenn, Tina, Curt, and Trish, many other members of the Styres family have contributed various resources to the success of the speedway, including their time, money, and land use - Anyone who has visited Ohsweken Speedway as a spectator has been greeted by the warm smile of Vera Styres on nearly every race night since the track opened.

The Southern Ontario Sprints club was also founded in 1996, with the second event in SOS history held on Ohsweken's opening day. Including that first event, the club has sanctioned a total of 92 events at Ohsweken over the last 19 seasons, and played an integral role in the growth of Sprint Car racing at the track and all over Ontario. SOS sanctioned events at Ohsweken include all 10 previous editions of the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals, and the 92 total SOS events at the track have produced 43 different winners.

There is perhaps no better example of the spirit of local short track racing than Mike "Pinball" Giberson, who competed at Ohsweken on opening day in 1996, and hasn't missed a race since. His dedication to preserving that iron-man streak would be reason enough to be considered for the Wall of Fame, but Giberson is also the 1996 Ohsweken Speedway Mini Stock division champion, and a three time winner of the Art Hill Memorial Award. He is the only repeat winner of that award, dedicated to the memory of the late Art Hill, and given to the Mini-Stock competitor who demonstrates sportsmanship, both on and off the track, strives to maintain the highest level of competition, and acts as an ambassador for Ohsweken Speedway.

About the Ohsweken Speedway Wall of Fame:
The Ohsweken Speedway Wall of Fame is dedicated to celebrating the achievements and contributions of those who have helped Ohsweken Speedway to become a premiere racing facility, and inspired generations to come. Selections will be made annually by the Wall of Fame committee, with potential honourees including (but not limited to) drivers, car owners, manufacturers, car builders, mechanics, sponsors, promoters, officials, sanctioning organizations, and media members.

The community is invited to submit nominations for induction to the Wall of Fame, and all nominations are given due consideration. The number of inductees in any given year shall be at the discretion of the Wall of Fame committee. The names of inductees for any given year will be announced in early spring, and the official induction ceremony will be held at Ohsweken Speedway on a selected race night during the subsequent season.

The 2015 Ohsweken Speedway Wall of Fame Selection Committee included Clinton Geoffrey, Tommy Goudge and Adam Ross, with consultation from Greg Calnan and Doug Leonard. Nominations were accepted until February 28, 2015. To nominate a candidate for consideration for the 2016 Wall of Fame class, please contact
media@ohswekenspeedway.com, or utilize the nomination form on the Ohsweken Speedway website at http://ohswekenspeedway.ca/?page_id=3279

It's all Michael at the URC Season Opener at Bridgeport Speedway

With a total of 22 cars on hand, URC had 3 heat races with heat wins going to Robbie Stillwaggon, Chuck Hebing and Curt Michael. With the 76 of Jamie Bodo and the 8w of PJ Williams retiring their cars after the heats, a consi was no longer needed. Many drivers were spotted in the pits during the night. Andy Best reports recently purchasing the 360 of Kevin Darling, so the 88B will be back in action soon. Kevin Darling reports that he is still getting the 9D together, but will be back on track soon. Also, Tim Hogue is reportedly waiting on a motor before he and Kyle Reinhardt can hit the track in the 39 car.

Next up for the United Racing Club on May 2nd will be the annual running of the Jack Gunn Memorial race at Selinsgrove Speedway. The following night URC will travel to Susquehanna Speedway for a special Sunday night show.

Rich Vleck, ROCHESTER, NY, (April 11, 2014)- The fourth season of Go Nuclear Late Model Series Action on the Atomic Power Racing Hour gets under way this week even before a car has his the track for this season.

CRASH PAD - It was a Williams Grove Sweep Friday night with Rodney Westhafer winning the 410 sprint feature and Adrian Shaffer winning the 358 sprint feature, both riding a CRASH PAD to Victory.   Obviously you don't need the CRASH PAD to win but winners know that Stuff Happens and it's best to be prepared.   Besides, the CRASH PAD adds comfort to the seat and softens the jolts of a rough track.   Reduce your Risk of Spinal Injury when Stuff Happens.   Go to www.802solutions.com for more information, a list of Dealers, and secure Online Ordering.

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.

Western New York Racing is proud to announce the start of our WNY Motocross Hall of Fame to honor and recognize people who helped to advance the sport of Motocross throughout our region. 

 

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 banquet on January 15th 2011.
