Braden Makes it Two in a Row with the Win at Kil-Kare Sunday

Salem, IN (July 31, 2017) – Two time ARCA/CRA Super Series Powered by JEGS Champion Travis Braden got his second straight ARCA/CRA Super Series win of the 2017 season in Sunday’s Rapid Fire Pizza 125 Presented by Hot Head Burritos at Kil-Kare Raceway in Xenia, Ohio, just outside of Dayton. Braden picked up his first win of the season with the series on July 21st at Lucas Oil Raceway. Braden competed weekly at Kil-Kare back when it conducted weekly events, and won the first ever ARCA/CRA Super Series event at Kil-Kare back in 2013. Braden was happy to get back to victory lane in the series first visit to Kil-Kare since the 2014 season.

“It feels really good to get back to back wins with this series,” remarked Braden. “This is one of my home tracks, it always feels good to get to victory lane here. We expect to perform well when we race here, and that’s what happened today. Got to thank my whole crew and my owners Myna and Bill Burba, without them I wouldn’t be in victory lane today!”

Series points leader Josh Brock grabbed the early lead from his pole starting position after EDCO Welding Fast Qualifier Justin Alsip drew an eight for the events inverted start. Brock was able to pull away from outside front row starter Greg Stapleton.

2014 series Kil-Kare winner Brandon Oakley quickly got by Stapleton and set his sights on running down Brock. Oakley powered by Brock to grab the lead on lap five and immediately started to pull away from the field.

Braden started patiently working his way through the field from his seventh place starting position to move into second and set his sights on running down Oakley. Braden was able to close on Oakley while the two threaded their way through lap traffic. Oakley got stuck behind the last cars on the lead lap, who were battling for position themselves. Braden made a quick move to the inside to get by Oakley and a couple of cars battling for position to grab the lead on lap 64, earning the AR Bodies Cool Move of the Race Award. Braden and Oakley made some contact, but both drivers gathered in their cars and continued to race without incident.

Things came to a screeching halt on lap 71 when Cody Robinson’s machine went up in flames from a blown engine, bringing out the events first caution and eventual red flag for an extended clean-up of oil on the track. Robinson managed to get out of his burning car without incident as the track safety crew quickly extinguished the flames.

The field went back green for only one lap before the second caution flew for a spin by Oakley while battling for second with David Carter. Stapleton and Hunter Jack spun after the caution flew. Oakley and Stapleton were able to continue but Jack’s day was over.

Braden kept the lead over Carter on the lap 73 restart, quickly pulling away for a sizable lead over Carter. The race went all the way to checkers from that point with Braden getting the win. Braden picked up a Hoosier Racing Tire Performance Award for his win coming from his seventh place starting position.

Carter would finish in second, his best ever finish with the ARCA/CRA Super Series. Carter picked up the FLUIDYNE High Performance Cool Under Pressure Award. Senneker Performance Rookie of the Year candidate Logan Runyon finished in third, also his best ever finish with the series. Runyon picked up his third Senneker Performance Rookie of the Race Award of the season, tying him with Brock for the most rookie awards so far this season.

Local competitor Drew Charlson came from his ninth place starting position to finish in fourth place, earning the Sweet Manufacturing Sweet Move of the Race Award. Alsip would finish in fifth place after going to the pits, where his crew made adjustments to the car after falling back through the field earlier in the event. Alsip would fight back to finish just inches ahead of Donnie Hill. Alsip’s crew picked up the PitBoxes.com Pit Crew of the Race Award, first for their efforts to get Alsip’s car ready for the event after suffering heavy damage in the July 9th JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour event at Kil-Kare, then making the right adjustments on Alsip’s car so he could get his fifth place finish.

Hill would finish in sixth after starting 14th earning a Hoosier Racing Tire Performance Award and the Hamner Racing Engines Hardcharger Award. Brock would finish in seventh, Oakley in eighth, Chad Pendleton in ninth and Stapleton in 10th.

The next ARCA/CRA Super Series event will be the Kalamazoo Klash 125 on Wednesday, August 9th at Kalamazoo Speedway. More information on all the CRA Series is available at www.cra-racing.com.

PAGE MAKES LAST LAP PASS FOR DIXIE ULTIMATE WIN

WOODSTOCK, GA – Michael Page of Douglasville, GA only led one lap of the 40-lap ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series South East Region race on Saturday night at Dixie Speedway in Woodstock, GA, but it was the one worth $4,000. Page trailed race leader Jason Croft of Woodstock, GA for 39 laps, but went for broke on the 40th and final lap.

After taking the white flag, Page stepped to the outside of the Swims Family’s 3/8-mile clay oval and made it work as he swept around Croft going off turn two with a standing-room-only crowd on their feet in appreciation. Page then came on around to take a .730 second margin of victory under the checkered flag.

Croft had to settle for second, while third went to ULTIMATE SE point leader Tyler Millwood of Cartersville, GA, who was also the Autolite/Fram/DirtOnDirt.com Rookie of the Race.
Dale Thurman of Cartersville, GA finished fourth and Ross Bailes of Clover, SC was fifth.

Jason Hiatt of Oxford, AL drove to a sixth-place finish, and National Dirt Late Model Hall of Fame Inductee Ronnie Johnson of Chattanooga, TN took the seventh spot. ULTIMATE title contender Jason Welshan of Maryville, TN finished eighth, Johnny Chastain of Murphy, NC was ninth, and Austin Smith of Rome, GA rounded out the top ten.

The defending ULTIMATE SE Champion Dennis “Rambo” Franklin of Gaffney, SC was the Hard Charger of the Race after taking a Provisional, starting 24th, and finishing 14th. Page also picked up a $200 Bonus as the M&W Transport “Haulin’ It” Fast Qualifier by out-timing the 31 entrants with a lap in 15.696 seconds. The two eight-lap B-Main Races were won by Smith and Gary McPherson of Dalton, GA.

Croft started the race from the pole position with Page on the outside of the front row. Croft took the lead, but the caution flag came out on the opening tour after Justin Shipley of Douglasville, GA hit the wall in turn one. Croft took the lead again on the restart with Page in hot pursuit. Frank Ingram of Acworth, GA stalled on the race track to bring out the second yellow flag on lap ten.

The field went back to green flag action with Croft leading and Page chasing for another ten laps before McPherson cut down a right-rear tire on lap 20. Croft was able to maintain a lead on Page after restart, but by lap 30, Page reached the back bumper of the race leader.

Croft seemed to have an advantage on Page in turns one and two; while Page seemed to have the better handling race car in turns three and four. When the leaders reached lapped traffic in the closing laps, Millwood closed in try to make it a three-car battle for the lead. Croft was trying to keep Page pinched down on the inside when he would try to make a run to challenge for the lead.

Anticipating Page to try for another inside run on the last lap, Croft tried to shut the door, but there was no one there. Page went to the outside in turns one and two, and then took the lead down the backstretch. Page then used his advantage in turns three and four to pull away to the $4,000 win.

The next race for the ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series will be a National Race at Volunteer Speedway in Bulls Gap, TN paying $12,000-to-win and $500-to-start on Thursday night, August 17.

The series will then move to Crossville Speedway in Crossville, TN on Friday night, August 18 for a $4,000-to-win, $400-to-start race co-sanctioned by the ULTIMATE SE Region and the ULTIMATE Battle of the Bluegrass Region.

BARE COLLECTS 2ND JEWEL OF FASTRAK TRIPLE CROWN AT WYTHE

RURAL RETREAT, VA – Although he was wide awake, FASTRAK Pro Late Model Series Mid-Ohio Valley Region point leader Tyler Bare of Rockridge Baths, VA said his #30 Loco Motives Rocket was a dream on Saturday night, as the second-generation driver won the 50-lap second jewel of the 12th Annual FASTRAK Pro Late Model Series Triple Crown at Wythe Raceway worth $3,000.

Bare took the lead at the halfway point of the 50-lap race when early leader Kenny Peeples of Rural Retreat, VA slowed on a restart. Once in the lead, Bare checked out on the field to take a 4.727 second margin of victory over a driver that Bare admitted intimidated him on a restart.

“My car was just a dream to drive all night long,” Bare said. “I was a little intimated on that lap 30 double-file restart when I looked over and saw Jonathan Davenport next to me! But this race car was such a dream, I can’t say it enough as to how it performed tonight. I didn’t see Davenport after we went green.”

Davenport started ninth and finished second to earn the Hard Charger of the Race Award driving the C&H Paving Barry Wright house car. Davenport had an exciting side-by-side battle with former FASTRAK Champion Ron Parker of Belwood, NC. Parker finished third in the Schaeffer Oil Rocket.

FASTRAK Pro Late Model Series South East Region point leader Matthew Nance finished fourth in the Diversified Finishers Longhorn, and Teddy Tate of Rural Retreat, VA took the fifth spot in the R&C Towing CVR. Brent Hilton of Rural Retreat, VA was sixth in the Cedar Springs Fish Farms Barry Wright, and Lance Reynolds of Max Meadows, VA drove the Reynolds Racing Warrior to a seventh-place finish.

Terry Cregger of Crockett, VA took the eighth spot in the Grayson Restaurant Barry Wight and Benji Hicks of Mt. Airy, NC finished ninth in the T&K Enterprises Longhorn. The defending FASTRAK Champion Cla Knight of North Augusta, SC rounded out the top ten in the Augusta Aquatics Longhorn.

In preliminary action, Peeples was the Fast Qualifier, touring the ½-mile high-banked clay oval in 17.775 seconds driving the Hilltop Auto Wholesale Barry Wright. The two eight-lap Heat Races were won by Bare and Peeples.

Bare continues to lead the FASTRAK MOV standings with 133 points, but there is a logjam behind him in the Top 5. Parker is second with 115 points, while Hicks and Nance are tied for third with 114 points apiece. Jensen Ford of Piney Flats, TN is fifth with 112 points. Ford was involved in a lap 29 accident and finished 14th in the Tim Byrd Motorsports TNT.

Nance remains the FASTRAK SE point leader, as the point lead failed to change hands after a race for the first time this season. Nance has 241 points to hold a six-point advantage over Parker , who climbed up to the second spot in the FASTRAK SE standings 235 points, Hicks is third with 231 points, Ford is fourth with 225 points, and Knight is fifth with 223 points.

After the first two jewels of the 12th Annual FASTRAK Triple Crown, Bare leads the standings with 67 points, and holds a three point lead over Parker, who has 64 points. Hicks and Hilton are tied for the third spot with 60 points apiece, and Nance is fifth with 56 points.

Knight is sixth with 53 points and Ford is seventh with 51 points. Corey Almond of Appomattox, VA and Tate are tied for eighth with 47 points apiece, and Brandon Umberger of Rural Retreat, VA rounds out the top ten in the FASTRAK Triple Crown points with 45 points. The third and final jewel of the 12th Annual FASTRAK Triple Crown will be a $2,500-to-win race on August 5 at Princeton Speedway in Princeton, WV.

Peeples took the lead on the first lap followed by Bare, Hilton, Hicks, and Ford. The third lap saw Ford work to the inside of Hicks of take over the fourth spot. The first of three caution flags came out on lap five when Chase McCormick of Dobson, NC stalled the Long Brothers of Smithfield Rocket in turn two.

Peeples chose the outside for the FASTRAK Double-File Restart with Bare, Hilton, Ford, Hicks, Parker, Davenport, Cregger, Nance and Tate in the top ten behind him. Ford got an inside run on Hilton coming down the front straightaway on lap six to move up to the third spot, and Parker got by Hicks to take over the fifth position.

Peeples was able to maintain a two to three car length advantage on Bare, while Ford was able to keep the two leaders in sight from the third position. Peeples and Bare began to encounter the cars on the tail end of the lead lap by lap 18.

Jon Painter of Stuarts Draft, VA made hard contact with the turn two guard rail in the Arborlife Rocket to bring out the second caution flag of the race, which turned to a red flag to give the safety crew proper room to work. Painter was able to walk away uninjured. Peeples led Bare, Ford, Hilton, Davenport, Parker, Cregger, Hicks, Nance, and Knight down for the restart.

When the green flag was waived to signal the restart, Peeples’ car was slow coming up to speed and Bare bolted out to the lead. As Peeples fell back through the field like a rock, top ten drivers either scrambled to miss him, or braked hard to keep from making contact with him.

Davenport and Parker moved up to second and third respectively after restarting fifth and sixth and Nance came from ninth up to fifth. Ford restarted directly behind Peeples on the restart, and he had to brake hard to keep from hitting Peeples, and dropped out of the top five. Ford would cross paths with Peeples one more time.

Going down the backstretch on lap 30, Peeples cut down a right-rear tire, and in his effort to get out of the racing groove, he came across the front of Ford’s car. Ford cut hard left trying to avoid contact, spun and hit the inside guard rail on the backstretch. That brought out the final caution flag of the race.

Bare was able to clear Davenport on the restart and then he began to check out on the field. Behind the leader, there were several position changes among the top ten drivers. Hicks made a charge to move up to the fourth spot on lap 31, but Nance and Hilton kept it a hard fought battle for the fourth position.

Nance put his car past Hicks on lap 32 for fourth, and lap 33 saw Tate move up to the fifth spot and make it four-car battle. Parker closed up on Davenport on 35 to engage in the side-by-side battle for the second spot. With ten laps to go, Bare had a half straightaway lead over Parker and Davenport. Lap 47 saw Davenport get an inside run to clear Parker for the second spot, but Bare was long gone with a full straightaway lead.

The next race for the FASTRAK Pro Late Model Series South East Region will be on Friday night with a $2,000-to-win, $250-to-start 40-lap event at 311 Motor Speedway in Pine Hall, NC.
