VanderBeek golden in Brown County USMTS Tilt

ABERDEEN, S.D. (June 29)–Nobody passed Zack VanderBeek in the USMTS Hunt for the Casey’s Cup main event Friday night at the Brown County Speedway as he led all 40 laps en route to a $3,000 payday and his 46th career United States Modified Touring Series victory.

Johnny Scott, on the other hand, passed just about every other car in the feature race except VanderBeek, and saw a miraculous run from the 17th starting spot end with a second-place ribbon.

Starting third, VanderBeek quickly disposed of front-row-starting Lance Mari and Lucas Schott to take control of the race at the onset. The 33-year-old from New Sharon, Iowa, never looked back.

If he had looked back he would have seen Scott reeling him in during the last dozen laps of the race. Relegated to the Real Racing Wheels “B” Main after a tough heat race, Scott jumped into action quickly in the main event as he picked off his competition lap after lap.

While VanderBeek was leading the field back to the flagstand each time around the high-banked 1/3-mile clay oval, Scott was climbing the ladder. He moved into the top five at the halfway mark, and then passed local favorite Alex Guthmiller with 14 laps to go.

Scott narrowed the gap behind VanderBeek and closed to within a few feet, but even a couple of late-race cautions wasn’t enough to propel him past ‘The Z-Man’ and the 2010 USMTS Rookie of the Year followed the 2004 USMTS Rookie of the Year to the checkered flag.

Making jut his second career USMTS start, Guthmiller ran a strong second for most of the contest before eventually crossing the finish in third ahead of Mike Stearns and Terry Phillips.

Defending race winner Stormy Scott claimed the sixth spot, Trevor Anderson was seventh, Ryan Gustin wound up eighth, Travis Saurer passed nine cars to get to ninth and Nebraskan Kyle Prauner rounded out the top 10 finishers.

Strong Field Invades the Buckeye State to Kick off 24th Season of Sunoco American Late Model Series

ROSSBURG, OH — Apr. 28, 2018 — The Sunoco American Late Model Series kicked off its 24th season of racing on the biggest stage in all of dirt track racing. The famed ½ (0.500)-mile high-banked dirt oval of Eldora Speedway (OH), located just east of the Indiana/Ohio state line in Rossburg, OH was the site for the 2018 season opener, the $5,000-to-win Late Model LidLifter. This event was the first of four appearances of the season at Eldora and 88th all-time event at the Buckeye State oval, the most of any track in the 23-year history of the series.

When the checkered flag flew, Nick Hoffman was the surprised winner in Victory Lane after flagged winner Jason Jameson crossed the scales light by just four pounds. “I wasn’t expecting that at all. I was happy to finish second after the great battle him and I had,“ explained the soon to be 26-year-old (on May 1st) after climbing from his #2 Propane Direct / Rocket XR1 machine. “It was a battle to start 10th in this field and work our way up to have a chance to win this. I hate to win that way, but we did have a helluva hot rod tonight,” added the Belleville, IL driver who now calls Mooresville, NC home.

The 407th all-time event in series history would see three-time DIRTcar Modified National Champion Devin Gilpin and Jameson lead the field to the green flag for the 25-lap feature. Gilpin would beat Jameson to the first corner to grab the early lead while the rest of the pack jockeyed for position behind them. After a caution on lap nine, the restart would see Jameson shoot out ahead of Gilpin to take over the top spot and try to pull away from the rest of the field.

At the halfway mark, Hoffman, who started 10th, had worked his way up to fourth and with 10 laps to go, disposed of 1997 Dirt Late Model Dream winner, Jimmy Mars and then Gilpin to take over second with six laps to go. He set his sights on Jameson and the battle was on for the lead. Hoffman tried high and low to get past Jameson, but it wasn’t enough as Jameson would see the checkered flag first, only to lose the victory by being light at the scales by just four pounds.

Gilpin would take second in the final rundown with Mars completing the podium finishers in third. 19-year-old Kody Evans scored an impressive fourth showing ahead of three-time and defending series champion, Jon Henry, who would finish off the top five. Two-time and defending DIRTcar Super Late Model National Champion, Rusty Schlenk finished sixth as Dustin Nobbe, defending track champion, Kent Robinson, five-time track champion, Matt Miller and Rob Anderzack were the final top 10. Earlier in the afternoon, Jameson picked up the Fast Qualifier honors over the 24-car field with a 15.510 = 116.054mph and he also won his Heat Race. Devin Gilpin and Kody Evans also scored Heat Race victories.

Eldora Speedway will host the Sunoco American Late Model Series three more times in 2018 starting with the traditional Memorial Day Holiday Weekend event, the 48th running of the Johnny Appleseed Classic on Sunday, May 27th. This race is the final opportunity for teams to get all important track time in preparation for the 24th running of the Dirt Late Model Dream on June 7-9th.

CARS Tour “Mid Atlantic Classic” to Utilize Controlled Cautions and Segments in $10,000 to Win Super Late Model Race

Mooresville, NC 4/10/18 – A growing staple event of the CARS Response Energy Super Late Model Tour, the Puryear Tank Lines/Thrifty Tire Centers “Mid Atlantic Classic” presented by TheGrillingStore.com, will see a small tweak in the format for the $10,000 to win Super Late Model race at Orange County Speedway on April 21st. Controlled cautions will be utilized for the eight tire race with segments of 30, 60, 40, and 20 laps making up the 150 lap race distance.

Similar to the inaugural event, each segment winner will receive a $500 cash bonus.  If the segment winners are on the lead lap at the end of the third segment they will be guaranteed a top eight starting position in the final 20 lap segment that decides who will take home the $10,000 top prize.

“This past month we spoke with several teams, drivers, and spotters and received great feedback on races with the controlled caution format. We were told that with races that use multiple tires the controlled caution provides the best format for teams to utilize options for strategy,” explained CARS Tour Series Director Chris Ragle. “The segments, along with the stages, are a perfect mix that will keep the race flowing and avoid the start and stops of the stage breaks we utilized before.  Based on feedback, we believe this format will add strategy and create comers and goers in the field which makes for a great show.”

Last July, Cole Rouse and Bubba Pollard picked up segment wins early but it was Steven Wallace who muscled his way to the front in the final few laps to win the inaugural event. With the event moving to an earlier point in the season, on April 21st, a strong contingent of cars is expected to be in attendance. In addition to defending champion Wallace, Super Late Model names like Stephen Nasse, Tate Fogleman, Jared Fryar, Bubba Pollard, and short track ace turned NASCAR Cup Series regular Corey LaJoie are just a few of the names expected to be at OCS in hopes of drinking the juice in Edelbrock Victory Lane.

In addition to the Super Late Models, the fan favorite Late Model Stock cars will see several drivers from the North Carolina Piedmont hitting the high banks of the 3/8th mile track. Touring 12 drivers Ronald “The Thrill” Hill, Craig Moore, Brandon Pierce, and Justin Johnson all call Orange County their home track on the tour. Outside of the Touring 12 fans can expect to see the Late Model Stock Tour’s most recent winner, Lee Pulliam at the 3/8th mile track, as well as several local drivers such as Christopher Denny, Terry Dease and defending race winner from a season ago, Deac McCaskill.

Fans are encouraged to take advantage of a big discount by ordering their tickets online in advance at carsracingtour.com. Tickets for the event will be $17 in advance and $25 at the gate. If the savings were not enough, all fans who pre-order tickets will automatically be entered to win a “Grilling Prize Pack” courtesy of TheGrillingStore.com. The prize pack, valued at $70, includes Jack Daniels smoking chips with smoking tube, three piece grilling tool kit, racing rub, and racing grilling sauce.

CONTROLLED CAUTIONS EXPLAINED: All cautions that are not quickie yellows will see the pits open for competitors for a period of four laps at pace car speed. These laps will not count toward the total race distance. Competitors will hold their place in line until deciding at a commitment cone, located at the pit entrance, to make the decision to pit under that caution period. Teams can change 0-4 tires each controlled caution, during the four lap period. Any team working past the four lap time period will start in the rear of the field. Competitors that pitted will be positioned behind those cars who did not pit, based on their previous running order when the caution was displayed, regardless of the number of tires changed or adjustments made. Positions can not be lost or gained on pit road, unless due to a competitor penalty. Each segment break will be a controlled caution no matter what, and will occur exactly on the specified segment ending lap. No controlled cautions will occur inside the final 20 lap segment.
