Briscoe Wins at Iowa

TOLEDO, Ohio (July 11, 2016) – Cunningham Motorsports had a pretty good eye when they scoped out Chase Briscoe and ultimately scooped him out of the sprint car ranks and put him in one of the team’s stock cars.
Any way you shake it, it was a risk to put an untried, inexperienced and unfunded sprint car driver in the seat of the 77. But, as it turns it, it was a pretty darn good move on the chess board and on the part of Cunningham co-owners Briggs Cunningham and Kerry…

Brandon Jones

BROOKLYN, Mich. (June 10, 2016) – Brandon Jones took advantage of his own really fast No. 8 Menards-Valvoline Chevrolet and Kyle Weatherman’s empty gas tank to win the 35th running of the Corrigan Oil 200 Friday afternoon at Michigan Int’l Speedway.
Late-race leader Weatherman gambled on fuel but ran well short when his No. 58 St. Charles Glass Ford ran dry four laps from the finish. From there, Jones cruised under the checkered flag more than six seconds ahead of his closest rival Chase Briscoe.
“I really wasn’t too worried about the 58,”…
