"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."

Dirt Track Girl is Goin' Racing!

We are loading up our trailer and coming to a track near you!

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!

 


 

 

 

 

  

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. 

Big-Block Modifieds and Sprint Cars to Highlight Action in 2014at Rolling Wheels Raceway Park

     The Fast Track special events include World of Outlaws STP Sprint Cars,
                   Super DIRTcar Series Big-Block Modifieds and ESS Speedweek

 

ELBRIDGE, N.Y. - April 17, 2014 - Five nights featuring the world's top dirt track stars and the fastest dirt track race cars are on tap for 2014 at Rolling Wheels Raceway Park.

 

The 800-horsepower Super DIRTcar Series Big-Block Modifieds, World of Outlaws STP Sprint Cars, Empire Super Sprints and other DIRTcar stars attack "The Fast Track" in 2014, bringing fans one of the most exciting schedules in the history of the 5/8-mile clay oval.

 

"Rolling Wheels is one of the premier motorsports facilities in Central New York," said Rolling Wheels General Manager Jeff Hachmann. "It has built a tradition on running must-see events, and in 2014 we have put together five events that feature the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Cars, Super DIRTcar Series and two new mid-week specials showcasing all DIRTcar divisions. If that isn't enough, back after popular demand, everyone who buys a ticket in advance to the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car event in October will receive a FREE Fan Pit Pass at no additional charge. I can't think of a better way to get up close and personal with 'The King' Steve Kinser and create memories that last a lifetime."

 

Two special Thursday night events on June 26 and July 24 highlight DIRTcar Thursday Night Thunder. DIRTcar Big-Block Modifieds, Sportsman and Stock Cars will be on the card for Thursday, June 26, and DIRTcar Big-Block Modifieds, Racesaver 305 Sprint Cars and Stock Cars will be featured on Thursday, July 24.

 

On Thursday, July 3, the Super DIRTcar Series action heats up with the 'Stars & Stripes' Summer Super Show presented by Dig Safely 811 featuring the Super DIRTcar Series Big-Block Modifieds and Empire Super Sprints. This blockbuster event will feature eight-time and defending series champion Brett Hearn in his pursuit for a record-setting ninth title, three-time champ Matt Sheppard's quest to regain supremacy, and Round #2 of ESS Speedweek for the 360 Sprint Cars. To celebrate the nation's birthday, a huge fireworks display will light up the sky on this special midweek event.

 

Saturday, Sept. 28, will bring the ESS Championship and Go Nuclear Late Model Series to Elbridge. It will be the first time the Go Nuclear Series has tackled 'The Fast Track' and the first time any Late Model series has competed at Rolling Wheels since 2012. In addition to this first, the Empire Super Sprints will return to decide their champion in the ESS Championship.

 

The final event of the Rolling Wheels season on Saturday, Oct. 11, showcases the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Cars as part of NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week in what has become a can't-miss event with championship implications every year. Making this year even more special, it will mark the final event at Rolling Wheels for 20-time World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car champion Steve Kinser on his "Salute to the King" tour. Plus, the annual DIRTcar Big-Block Modified "Win-and-You're-In" 25-lap feature that night will lock in the final competitor to the Syracuse 200 at the New York State Fairgrounds.

“SALUTE TO CHAMPION STEVE KINSER” SPECIAL EXHIBITION TO DEBUT AT THE NATIONAL SPRINT CAR MUSEUM IN JUNE

 

KNOXVILLE, IOWA (April 16, 2014) – The National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum in Knoxville is pleased to announce that this year’s featured attraction will be the “Salute to Champion Steve Kinser” special exhibition.  The display, consisting of at least six cars that the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame inductee drove during his illustrious career, will be in the non-profit museum from June 13 through November 1.  It follows similar exhibitions honoring Tony Stewart (2011), Jeff Gordon (2012) and Mario Andretti (2013).

 

According to museum curator Thomas J. Schmeh, “I have to thank Steve and Dana Kinser, and Misha Geisert of Tony Stewart Racing, for their unbridled enthusiasm in helping us plan for this unique display of vehicles and memorabilia.  I also give my sincere appreciation to the current owners of the Steve Kinser-driven race cars that we will have on display: the Robert Karnell family; Alan Kreitzer and Lynn Paxton of the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing (EMMR); Chuck Merrill of Maxim Chassis; Dana Kinser and Tony Stewart.  Words cannot truly express my sincere gratitude to all of these generous people.”

 

The “Salute to Champion Steve Kinser” special exhibition will coincide with the King’s final full season on the World of Outlaws (WoO) STP Sprint Car Series in 2014.  In fact, it will debut on the weekend of the WoO Mediacom Shootout on June 14 at the legendary half-mile Knoxville Raceway, at which the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum is located.

 

Said museum executive director Bob Baker today, “This display, featuring the race cars and a lot of other Steve Kinser-related art and artifacts, will only be able to be seen together at one place this year and that is here at the ‘Sprint Car Capital of the World.’  This will be a must-see attraction for the legion of fans of the 20-time World of Outlaws champion and 12-time Knoxville Nationals winner.”  

 

Those seeking additional information can visit the museum’s web site at www.sprintcarhof.com.

 

 

 

 

 

Tracking the changes at Cornwall Speedway

Standard-Freeholder staff

 

CORNWALL - Cornwall Motor Speedway race director Scott Hanton is calling 2014 the "year of change" at the clay oval.

 

Long-time owner Ron Morin has sold the facility to Raymond Lavergne and his brother Jacques. A lot of the track's tradition - and annual schedule - remains, of course.

 

The season starts with a bang in just over a month - the first event in the Canadian Nationals in conjunction with the DIRTcar 358-Modified Series that has a 100-lap main event on May 18.

 

Several major events will be presented in June, starting with a DIRTcar Series doubleheader involving the Sportsman and Pro-Stock Series, with each division having a 50-lap feature.

 

The Go Nuclear Late Model Series makes its first Cornwall appearance on June 8, and the month closes with a major event, the Super DIRTcar Big Block Series roars into the track for its annual visit and 100-lap main event.

 

The second half of what will hopefully be a dry 2014 campaign will be highlighted by the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars Series that's back for a third straight year, on July 27.

 

The season runs until Sept. 7, with the Fireball Enduro bringing down the curtain.

EMPIRE SUPER SPRINTS (ESS)  SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY APRIL 12

358-360 Sprint Car Spring Challenge

 

The long-time sprint car driver from Liverpool christened the new era of the 358-360 sprint car division on Saturday night by surviving a torrid battle with Selinsgrove’s Mike Walter for the $3,000 pay day.

Other winners on Saturday night were Jeff Rine (late models), Brad Mitch (pro stocks) and Keith Bissinger (roadrunners).

“In the beginning, we were getting away with running the top on the restarts, as I knew I had to at some point, start doing mock flyers and blocking the bottom off,” Stutts said. “I didn’t think my car was good enough, but the dirt got cleaned off and the last 10 laps of the race, we were getting better.”

Walter took the early lead in the 30-lap feature before Stutts made the first of several back-and-forth lead swaps as he completed a slide job coming out of Turn 4 on lap 4.

By lap 8, Walter closed in on Stutts as the two battled for the lead in Turn 2, but Stutts held on to the lead.

The leaders were about to enter lapped traffic on lap 14 when the caution came out again. In all, there were seven caution periods and one red flag.

On the restart, Sunbury’s Mark Smith got by Walter for second before the caution came out again on lap 15.

Walter retook the lead on lap 17, but Stutts drove under him in Turn 3 to regain the lead.

Davie Franek slowed on lap 19 to bring out the fourth caution of the race. He was running eighth at the time.

Walter retook the lead on lap 20, but Stutts passed him on lap 21 for the final time.

Smith was able to get by Walter late to finish second while Walter held on for third with Pat Cannon fourth and Brock Zearfoss fifth.

Sixth through 10th were Andy Best, Mark Bittner, Derek Locke, Kevin Ward Jr. and Ed Aikin.

Heats for the 26 358-360 sprint cars were won by Stutts, Walter and Akin.

ESS champion Steve Porier set fast time with a lap of 17.384 seconds, but broke during his heat.

Sprints A-Main Results (1-10): (1) TJ Stutts, (2) Smith, (3) Walter, (4) Cannon (5) Zearfoss (6) Best (7) Bittner (8) Locke (9) Ward (10) Aiken (11) Weller (12) Vigneault (13) Steward (14) DNFs (Womer, Franek, Ott, Trenca, Carber, Shultz, Collins)

 

 

 

 

URC Season officially opens Saturday night, April 19 at Selinsgrove Speedway. . . . . .

 LANCE MOSS IS IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME TO TAKE USCS/URC VICTORY SATURDAY NIGHT AT LANCASTER SPEEDWAY

 

LANCASTER, SC . . . . . . Lance Moss knows only too well about being in the wrong place at the wrong time, but Saturday night at the Lancaster Speedway in Lancaster, SC, he found himself in the right place at the right time. After dominating most of the 25 lap USCS/URC feature event, Eric Riggins came to a stop in turn one on lap nineteen, handing the lead over to Lance Moss. The race was far from over as Moss had to hold off the challenges from Friday nights feature winner Johnny Bridges for the final six laps with Lance Moss taking the victory.

Heat race winners were Morgan Turpen and URC’s Troy Betts.

 

In the twenty-five lap USCS/URC feature event, Lance Moss jumped to an early lead with Eric Riggins following in second with Johnny Bridges in third. Moss held off a determined Riggins until lap seven when Riggins took the lead. Just off the pace was Bridges, Robbie Stillwaggon and Troy Betts. In the meantime, Riggins ran to hide from the rest of the field, opening up a huge lead.

 

At the halfway point of the race, Riggins, Moss, Bridges, Stillwaggon and Troy Betts made up the top five.

 

The turning point of the race came on lap nineteen when race leader Eric Riggins slowed at the start-finish line, the rolling to a stop in turn one. The yellow was displayed and Riggins was pushed to the infield with Moss the new leader. The mechanical problems that sent Riggins to the infield were unknown at the time and just before the race was ready to restart, the Riggins #47 360 sprint car returned to the speedway to continue the race.

 

With the drop of the green flag, the race resumed with Moss now in a battle with Bridges for the lead. URC’s Stillwaggon was also within striking distance. With just two laps remaining, Moss expanded his lead slightly, leaving Bridges to battle with Stillwaggon, and a battle it was.

Billy Pauch Jr, the second generation star from Milford, NJ will make a full assault on the USAC Eastern Storm Tour which will take his talents to Grandview, Lincoln, New Egypt, Port Royal and Susquehanna Speedways from June 3-8.  His sharp, wingless F5 Twister chassied machine will be supplied by Franckowiak with Thomas and Engler providng the Engler Performance built powerplant and hauler.

“I have to thank Gene, Brian and Bruce so much for all their help with the USAC program.  I just love running the wingless sprints and I can not wait to be a part of the Eastern Storm swing at some really top dirt tracks.” noted the 26 year old driver. “I will also look to run a few ESS events which will be cool.  They have a neat club with some of the best drivers and going up to New York will be fun.”

 

Specialty Rigging from Reading Pa, will be a major force in the effort. Not only in sponsoring Pauch’s Eastern Storm effort but also is a sponsor on Franckowiak’s 410 sprint car team driven by Dave Ely. You will see Specialty Rigging’s logo placed on the ESS website for their contributions to all involved as well.

“I am just having fun helping out some really good people in our sport.  I think Billy is one of the best young talents around and he will have some good finishes with the wingless car in the USAC races.” said Franckowiak.  “Specialty Rigging has been great in helping and a I am also happy to put the ESS logo on our car as well.  We ran with ESS during their Speedweek with Dave (Ely) last year and just had a ball.  They really have fun with what they are doing up there in NY.”

CASEY’S GENERAL STORES PLEDGES $25,000 TO NATIONAL SPRINT CAR MUSEUM’S “EXPAND THE DREAM” CAMPAIGN

 

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.

 

 

3M DONATES $25,000 TO KNOXVILLE AND THE NATIONAL SPRINT CAR MUSEUM’S “EXPAND THE DREAM” CAMPAIGN

 

KNOXVILLE, IOWA (January 30, 2014) -  The 3M Foundation has once again shown its commitment to Knoxville and the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum by donating $25,000 to the museum foundation’s “Expand the Dream” campaign.  Representing the Knoxville 3M plant this week at the check presentation were Todd Weber and Tracinda Yaw, while executive director Bob Baker represented the 501(c)(3) national non-profit museum.  3M employee and museum board member Mike Husted was also present at the ceremony.

 

“This is not 3M’s first donation to the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum,” said Tracinda Yaw, 3M Knoxville plant manager.  “And this won’t be our last gift either.”

 

According to Bob Baker, “We can’t thank the 3M Foundation enough for their continued support of our efforts of ‘promoting the future by preserving the past’ history of the sport of sprint car racing.  As Expand the Dream campaign chair Don Lamberti would say, ‘Now is not the time to let off the gas; we need to keep pushing the accelerator down.’   The museum foundation’s campaign is over halfway towards its goal of raising money for a brand-new storage and staging facility and increasing its overall endowment fund.”

 

For more information on this donation, please contact 3M Community Affairs at 651-733-0144.  For more information on the non-profit National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum, please contact executive director Bob Baker at 641-842-6176.

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.

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.

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.
