|Late Models, A Modifieds Back As Antioch Speedway Returns From Break
Antioch, CA...After taking a week off for a concert at the fairgrounds, the All Star Series racing program returns to Antioch Speedway this Saturday night. DIRTcar Late Models are back in action along with the A Modifieds, Limited Late Models, Hobby Stocks and the Bay Area Hardtops.
This is only the third event of the season for the Late Models, but Jeff Decker once again leads the charge on the strength of two wins and a second place finish. The standings have a different look behind him as Rod Oliver trails Decker by 16 points on the strength of all Top 4 finishes. Four points behind Oliver is Dennis Souza, who has picked up a season-high second place finish already. These two drivers have hopes of being the next one to get a feature victory, but others to keep an eye on this week include Rob Norris, Mike Hynes, Kimo Oreta, Paul Guglielmoni and two-time champion Richard Papenhausen
In the A Modified division, we have a close battle between Nick DeCarlo and reigning champion Bobby Motts Jr. DeCarlo has won four Main Events so far, but he still only leads the consistent Motts by two points. Motts has a pair of seconds and three thirds, but he is still searching for his first win of the season. DeCarlo has won championships at Watsonville and Petaluma in recent seasons, but he would like to add Antioch to his list of credentials. At the moment, Motts is the only driver offering any resistance.
Sean O'Gara runs a solid third in the standings once again, leading rookie Buddy Kniss by 34 points. Third generation racer Kniss has rapidly climbed the ladder of divisions at the speedway from Dwarf Cars to Limited Late Models, and he's held his own against the more experienced competitors in an A Modified. Kniss leads Bobby Montalvo by 14 points and past champion Kellen Chadwick by 22 in a close race for fourth. Chadwick is a three-time feature winner so far this year. Other drivers to watch for this week include David Zeider, Ray Lindeman, Trent Wentworth and five-time champion Scott Busby.
The Limited Late Model championship battle is the closest at the speedway, and it pits reigning champion Kimo Oreta against third generation competitor Mark Garner and the returning Mike Walko. Walko started his career at Antioch Speedway before competing in most recent seasons at Marysville Raceway. Oreta got off to a slow start, but after his third feature win the last time, he took a four point lead over two-time winner Garner. Walko had all Top 3 finishes in his first seven starts, including two wins, keeping him 14 points behind Oreta.
Ryan Cherezian has finished as high as second this season, and he's hoping to put his truck in the Winner's Circle. He has a solid hold on fourth in the standings, leaving last year's top rookie, Chad Hammer and the steady John Evans to battle for fifth. Hammer holds a four point lead over Evans, who had his best career finish in second last time out. Other drivers to watch for this week include two-time champion Mike Gustafson, Jon Haney and Jim Freethy.
After the track's decision to adjust the schedule at the end of the season last year cost Chris Sorensen a possible championship, he seems to be making up for it as he's off to a flying start in the Hobby Stock division. Sorensen tops the win list with five victories, putting him 86 points in front of his nearest challenger, Michael Cooper. Cooper has picked up three wins this year, while reigning champion Cameron Swank has four victories. Swank trails Cooper by 29 points in a closer race for second.
It's hard to get a win in this field with those three drivers carrying such an experience advantage. However, fourth ranked Billy Garner and fifth ranked John Wacht each have a win. Garner leads Wacht by just 28 points, and Wacht leads the rookie race by over 100 points ahead of Haley Gomez. Interestingly enough, Gomez had a race a few weeks ago that she led for 19 laps before mechanical issues ended that run right after she took the white flag. She shouldn't be counted out this week, and other drivers to watch for include Breanna Troen, Anthony Vigna, Anthony Wellborn and Josh Leach.
The last time the Bay Area Hardtop division was at Antioch Speedway, Ken Retzloff with picking up the win. Retzloff has also won a race on the Hardtop circuit at Placerville Speedway. He is anticipated this week along with two drivers who have Antioch wins in the past, Terry DeCarlo and Dave Mackey. Doug Braudrick continues to work the bugs out of his race car, but he should be back this week along with Kimo Oreta. We're still waiting on Tommy Thomson to complete repairs and get his #39 car back out at the race track, which could also signal the return of Dan Williams when that happens. It's possible there could be a few drivers from the California Hardtop Association, and most likely candidates include Ken Clifford, Jason Armstrong, Dave Reed and Ron Ruiz.
Saturday night should be an exciting night of racing at Antioch Speedway with the return of the popular Late Models and A Modifieds. For further information, go to www.antiochspeedway.com

IMCA Modified Classes Headline Four Division Show At Merced Speedway
Merced, CA...Merced Speedway will be offering the fans their classic lineup this Saturday night. The IMCA Modifieds are back In action along with the IMCA Sport Modifieds, Hobby Stocks and Mini Stocks. The track will be going on summer break for a couple of weeks, so this event, sponsored by D&L Pump Service of Merced, will be your last opportunity to see some racing at the Merced Fairgrounds oval until Legends Night on August 11th.
Though he wasn't quite fast enough to overtake Kenny Schrader last time out, Darrell Hughes II had a nice charge from the back of the pack to a second-place finish. That finish moved him 19 points ahead of Brian Pearce in the IMCA Modified point battle. Hughes, who is a third-generation racer, counts one victory among his five Top 5 finishes. He's in the midst of his best season yet, and though the team isn't picking a spot for that championship trophy on their mantle place just yet, they are beginning to feel pretty good about their chances.
With Ramie Stone in the field, it's always best not to get too confident. The Big Dog is a feature winner this year and a four-time champion in this class through the years. He trails Pearce by 12 points in the race for second. Ramie's brother Troy Stone is tied with cousin Paul Stone for fifth in the standings. He has one Top 5 finish so far, but he's looking to get back into the Winner's Circle. Ryan Porter is somebody who always makes a good challenge as he searches for his first win of the season. Other drivers to watch for this week include Derek Nance, Justin Villanueva, Jeff Streeter, Ricky Thatcher, Tim Cecil and Jarrod Fast.
The championship battle in the IMCA Sport Modified division is just a little bit closer. As of this writing, we haven't seen the latest point list, but it's likely that Danny Roe used his Top 5 finish at the recent race to overtake Jeremy Hoff for the point lead. When points are added up, there should still only be less than 20 points separating Roe from Hoff, Tanner Thomas, Bubba Nelson and Chris Falkenberg. Nelson and Falkenberg also looked good last time out with their Top 5 finishes behind winner Kelly Wilkinson. Wilkinson makes five different winners so far this season.
Rising young star Tanner Thomas is the only multi-time winner at this stage of the season with three victories. His most recent start still resulted in a Top 10 finish, though not as high as he would have liked. The second generation racer is keeping the pressure on Roe and Hoff. Tanner's brother Chase Thomas is also a one-time winner this year. He will be going for another win, and other drivers to keep an eye on include Tim Elias, Cody Parker, Chuck Weir, Jarrod Mounce and Mark Odgers. Parker looked good last week before mechanical issues sent him to the pits.
The pressure is on Shannon Nelson to put the F&D Motorsports #4b car into the Winner's Circle this week. Though she is still within 5 points of reigning champion Kodie Dean, Shannon knows that she will have to start winning some races. She and Dean both have seven Top 5 finishes, but Dean has won six of the 9 Main Events held so far. Nelson hasn't scored a feature wins since 2015, but she's running well enough to get the job done this season.
Another driver on a quest for her first win since 2015 is Kristie Shearer. Shearer is a solid third in the standings, but only has one Top 5 finish so far. Austin Van Hoff, meanwhile, drove to a third place finish after a spirited duel with Donnie Shearer last time out. Though still looking for his first win this year, Austin has a slim two point lead over one time-winner Robbie Loquaci in the race for fourth. Other drivers to watch for this week include Michael Shearer, Mike Germait, John Hensley, James Stockton, Kalob Shelton and Cody Smiley.
There's a change taking place in the Mini Stock division. Three-time reigning champion Chris Corder has walked away from the division following a tech disqualification last time out. Sister Jennifer Corder, however, still is in the hunt her first championship despite being disqualified that night as well. The consistent Allen Neal holds a slim eight point lead over Lee Ragsdale. Both drivers have four Top 5 finishes in six starts. Tyler Jackson is 21 points back in third in a closer battle with Jennifer Rodgers and Jennifer Corder. The two ladies are within 10 points of Jackson, and all Top 5 drivers are still looking for their first wins this season.
Shawn DePriest recorded his first win of the season last time out. It had to be satisfying for him as both Corders were chasing him. Robert Jackson counts himself as a two-time winner this year and is also among the Top 10 drivers. Lucy Falkenberg and Devin Bolton are among the other drivers to watch for this week. Word out of the Fresno area is that Central Valley Mini Stock competitor Dan Myrick is planning to come challenge the Merced racers as his group gets ready for a big show on Sunday at Lemoore. It's also possible that a few more drivers from his group will be at Merced.
The Saturday night lineup will be good from top to bottom and is sure to leave the fans wanting more as they head into the two-week break. For further information, go to www.racemerced.com
Wilkinson Wins, Dean Continues To Roll At Merced Speedway
Merced, CA...July 14...Kelly Wilkinson won the 25 lap IMCA Sport Modified Main Event Saturday night at Merced Speedway. It was the first win of the season for Wilkinson. Cody Parker had the pole for the feature and raced into the lead at the green flag. Wilkinson settled into second ahead of Bruce Nelson. On the eighth lap, Wilkinson made a Turn 2 pass on Parker to gain the lead, and Nelson raced by Parker for second in Turn 4. Nelson was providing pressure for Wilkinson until the final caution flag waved on lap 20. On the restart, Wilkinson pulled ahead just a bit as Nelson was in a close three-car battle for second with Chris Falkenberg and Mark Odgers. Wilkinson took the checkered flag a few car lengths ahead of Nelson. Falkenberg was third, followed by Danny Roe, Nick Tucker, Jarrod Mounce, Austin Williams, Chase Thomas, Odgers and Tanner Thomas. Eight lap heat race wins went to Falkenberg, Wilkinson and Nelson.
Point leader Kodie Dean continues to roll as he won his sixth 25 lap Hobby Stock Main Event of the season. Dean had the pole for the Main Event and raced into the lead from the start, followed closely by championship rival Shannon Nelson. The lead duo ran closely throughout the race, leaving the battle for third. Donnie Shearer held the spot in the waning laps, but he pushed high in Turn 4 on lap 22, which allowed to Austin Van Hoff to race underneath for the third place finish. Donnie Shearer settled for fourth, followed by Michael Shearer, Kristie Shearer, Kalob Shelton, Brad Myers, John Hensley and Breanna Troen. Shannon Nelson, Michael Shearer and Kodie Dean each won eight lap heat races.
Chris Birdsong piloted the Jeff Bristow car to victory in the 15 lap Sportsman Main Event. This is the third win for the Bristow car as Chris Falkenberg has won with it twice. Birdsong charged into the lead at the start of the non-stop race and proceeded to pull away by half a lap, leaving the battle for second. Eric Seeley charged past Chris Delfs on lap two to gain second with point leader Jerry Cecil following closely into third. Birdsong went on to win his third Main Event of the season, followed by Seely, Cecil, Delfs, Mike Friesen, Rick Elliot and Jeff West. Delfs scored the victory in the eight lap heat race.
Jesse James Burks won his fifth California Sharp Mini Late Model Main Event of the season. He charged into lead from the start and led the entire distance with point leader Timmy Crews in close pursuit in second. Carson Guthrie and Ian Shearer rounded out the field. Guthrie scored his first eight lap heat race win of the season. For further information, go to www.racemerced.com

| Modifieds, Dwarf Cars And Karts
At Southern Oregon Speedway This Weekend
White City, Oregon...Southern Oregon Speedway heads into its final race of July with an exciting five division show on the big track this Saturday night, featuring IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sport Modifieds, Southern Oregon Dwarf Cars, Valley Store-All Late Model Lites and OTRO Hardtops. On Friday night, little Southern Oregon Speedway will offer a full program of Outlaw Kart racing. It's a great opportunity for the fans to satisfy their need for speed before the one week break.
The Southern Oregon Dwarf Car Association will be taking center Stage for the next couple of races. This weekend offers one final tune-up at the home track before the big Dwarf Car Nationals event on the first weekend of August. The Dwarf Cars have seen a resurgence of driver support, and it's led to a wide-open battle on the race track.
Last time out, Cody Peters scored his first feature win of the season. He now joins his father, Brock Peters, on the winner's list along with Kalvin Morton, Camden Robustelli, Josh King and Guy Tow. Robustelli and Morton are the only two-time winners on the circuit so far. While these drivers have claimed victories, Chad Cardoza, Ryan Smith and Fred Hay have been knocking on the door to victory. Hay has scored back-to-back Top 3 finishes, and Cardoza was shown as the point leader going into the most recent race.
The Dwarf Cars aren't the only division that has had a wide-open battle on the race track every week. IMCA Sport Modified competitors have been battling hard all season long for Main Event glory, and there have been no repeat winners to date. Wins have been earned by Justin McCreadie, Braxton Possinger, Branden Wilson, Fred Ryland and point leader David Marble. Marble has been very consistent this season. Following his third place finish last time out, he emerged with a 28 point lead over Willie McFall in the championship chase.
As Marble has begun to pull away, McFall has Tony Bartell, Wilson and Tony Duste all within five points of him in a close battle for second. Wilson won the most recent race by surprising race long leader Jimmy Lipke as he beat him back to the finish line with a last-lap pass. Lipke is rumored to be coming back to make another run at the win. Another driver planning to be there this week is two-time reigning champion Mike Medel, who had anything but a good race last time out. Both drivers are hoping for their first wins at the track this year, and others to watch for include Jesse Merriman, Danny Rule and rookie Brian Knorr.
In the IMCA Modified division, it's rumored that the point race will get a shake up as Nick Trenchard heads up north to make a run at a big payday. Trenchard has been known in recent years as somewhat of a bounty hunter with a knack for winning big races. In his absence, two-time champion Albert Gill is poised to take over the lead. However, Gill is hoping for a feature win. He has finished second twice this year, but second place isn't what he came to do. Another driver who has struggled a bit in recent weeks is seven time champion Mark Wauge. Wauge led early last time out before pitting. It turned out that he had a blown motor. This leaves the team going back to the drawing board once again. Zach Fettinger has been on a roll with two wins, and this has him just five points behind Wauge in the battle for third as David Satterfield is a surprising fourth. These two drivers are anticipated this week along with Jansen Knips, Bo Shields, Jeremy Ohlde and Andy Freeman.
Last time, Charlie Eaton became the first repeat winner of the Valley Store-All Late Model Lites division. It really looked like reigning champion Bob Burkett was going to get the win until contact between he and 2016 champion Lee Doty gave Eaton his opportunity to take the lead. In winning the race, Eaton increased his slim lead to just eight points over one-time winner Greg Arnold in the standings. Arnold will be hoping to rebound from bad luck last time out, and other drivers to watch for include Eric Aos, Dusty Aos, Terry Hadley and Krista Hadley.
The Old Time Racers of Oregon Hardtops return for their fourth appearance of the season. Mark Minter, Bill Trotter and Dusty Trotter count themselves as the feature winners so far. Lest anybody thinks these old time V6 powered cars that run on slick tires aren't being raced hard, Dusty Trotter's night ended early last time when he and Jay Smith crashed on the back stretch in a close battle for a Trophy Dash win. Smith has a pair of second place finishes and will be looking to get a win this week along with Justin Krossman.
The Friday night Outlaw Kart program has been ruled this season by the youngest of the kids. Malachi Johnson has rattled off three Beginners Box Stock wins in a row to take the lead in the championship battle ahead of Carson Henson. Last time out, Johnson and Mike Wheeler Jr had a spirited dual for the feature win. The Beginners class features kids from 5 to 8 years old. Keaton Augustine continues to lead the Box Stock race after back-to-back wins, and Vinny DeBenedetti is closing in fast on point leader Trevor Grimes after his second straight win. Add the UAS Speedway Karts and 500 Open Karts, and it should be a fun night at the little track on Friday. Racing starts at 7 p.m., and the $10 admission gets you pit access as well as seats in the bleachers.
On Saturday night at the big track, gates open at 5 p.m. with the first race firing off at 7 p.m. General Admission is $12, Seniors, Veterans and Juniors (7 to 12) are $6 and children 6 and under are free. For further information, go to www.southernoregonspeedway.com

This was the fifth win of the season for the current point leader, and it started out with him playing catch up with Jeffrey Hudson, who would settle for his second runner-up finish of the season.
Dwarf Car Star Camden Robustelli had his distributor problem solved and made a surprise appearance. He held off Hibbard to win the first of two eight lap heat races. Hudson outran rookie Theron Smith to claim the other heat race victory. Hudson set himself up for a pole position start for the Main Event by winning the eight lap Scramble ahead of 2009 champion Charlie Thompson.
Hudson set the early Main Event pace ahead of Thompson. The only caution flag of the race flew on left three for debris on the track. Hudson led Thompson and David Hibbard on the restart. Hibbard ran closely behind Thompson until making an inside pass on the backstretch of the eighth lap to claim the second spot. Two laps later, he made a similar move on Hudson and emerged with the lead. Blaine Cory had just settled into fifth, and he made an inside pass on the backstretch to take fourth from Bailey Hibbard on lap 12. Meanwhile, David Hibbard pulled away just a little bit from Hudson at the front of the pack, and Cory made a Turn 4 pass on Thompson on lap 14 to take over third. David Hibbard set at a rapid pace up front as he went on to claim the victory, followed by Hudson, Cory, Thompson, Bailey Hibbard, Robustelli, Aaron Miller, Todd Whipple and Smith.
The Kendell Oil Winged Sprint Cars return as part of the second night of the Western States Dwarf Car Nationals event on August 4th. For further information, go to www.southernoregonspeedway.com

White City, Oregon...July 14...Nathan Augustine won the 25 lap Late Model Main Event Saturday night at Southern Oregon Speedway. Augustine is the current point leader, and he became the first two-time winner of the season as he debuted a new car. Recent Sunset Speedway feature winner John Dees ran a good race and finished second for the third time this season.
John Dees started the night off right by winning the four lap Trophy Dash. He followed that up by picking up a win in his six lap heat race, while Augustine outran Bob Dees to win the other heat. This put Augustine and John Dees on the front row, and they settled into the first and second positions at the drop of Derrel Nelson's green flag. Bob Dees ran closely in third, and Eric Massey spun in Turn 2 for the only caution flag on lap two. Augustine continued to lead John Dees on the restart, and Dave Foote took fourth from Miles Deubert on lap four. Two race long battles begin at that point as John Dees searched for a way underneath Augustine for the lead, while Foote was battling Bob Dees for third. Massey pitted after being lapped on lap 14. During the final five laps, John Dees was giving Augustine some serious pressure, but Augustine was up to the task as he held on for the much-needed victory. John Dees settled for second, followed by Bob Dees, Foote, Deubert, Massey and Don Garrett Jr.

Steele Caps Clean Sweep With Fifth Bobbio's Pizza Mini Stock Win At Southern Oregon Speedway
White City, Oregon...July 14...David Steele scored the victory in the 20 lap Bobbio's Pizza Mini Stock Main Event Saturday night at Southern Oregon Speedway. He continued his march towards the championship as he capped a clean sweep effort that also included wins in his heat race and the Trophy Dash. Teammate Steve Goetz settled for second.
Steele kicked of the night by out running Goetz to win the four lap Trophy Dash. Steele and Goetz each won six lap heat races. In Steele's heat race, Gary Anderson and Kristopher makes got together exiting Turn 4 and Anderson's car careened into the front wall, doing severe front end damage. Steele and Goetz shared the front row of the Main Event and raced into the top two positions. Mix settled into third and raced past Goetz for second on a lap four restart. However, when Hunter Magnan brought out a lap seven caution flag, track officials penalized Mix two positions for a jump start infraction. Steele led Goetz as Mix moved back into third. A series of three caution flags during the midpoint of the race did not deter Steele as he maintained his lead over Goetz and Mix on each restart. Even a final restart following a lap 18 yellow flag for Magnan didn't stop Steele. He again charged into the lead and took it to the checkered flag in victory. Goetz settled for second ahead of Mix. Garrett Fredrickson held off Magnan's late charge to finish fourth. Magnan settled for fifth ahead of McLeod.
The Bobbio's Pizza Mini Stocks will return as part of the August 11th $2,000 to win Ironhead Winged Sprint Car Nationals. Also on the program will be the Southern Oregon Dwarf Cars and JOAT Labs Hornets. For further information, go to www.southernoregonspeedway.com

White City, Oregon...July 14...2016 champion Tim Hedges scored his first 20 lap JOAT Labs Hornets Main Event win of the season Saturday night at Southern Oregon Speedway. He became the fifth different winner in six races after earlier winning the Trophy Dash. When the points were tallied, Hedges emerged with the point lead over the surprising Bree Tritchler, who finished second for the third straight race.
Tim Hedges won a spirited duel with his son, Ashtin Hedges, to claim the four lap Trophy Dash victory. There were two very competitive heat races with Zach Nelson winning the first six lapper ahead of Tim Hedges. Dylan Irving scored a photo finish victory over Ashtin Hedges in the second heat. Zach Nelson led the opening lap of the Main Event from his pole position start, but an inside move in Turn 4 a lap later put Tim Hedges into the lead. The caution flag soon followed for Tritchler. Hedges continued to lead Nelson and Chris Boynton on the restart, but Boynton took second from Nelson on lap four. Ashtin Hedges moved into contention for third and made an inside pass on the backstretch on lap six to take third from Nelson. A high pass in Turn 4 of the ninth lap gained Ashtin Hedges second from Boynton before a caution flag waved for Boynton on the frontstretch. Tim Hedges led Ashtin Hedges and Tritchler on the restart. Tritchler raced underneath Ashtin Hedges in Turn 4 for second on lap 12 as the lead three cars ran closely. Dylan Irving was up to fourth at that time, and a high pass in Turn 4 of what would have been the 16th lap put Tritchler into the lead. However, the caution flag flew for Nelson and negated the pass. On the restart, Ashtin Hedges lost power for another caution flag. Tim Hedges led Tritchler and Irving on the next restart, and the lead three ran in that order to the finish. Dylan Sauer had his best finish yet in fourth, followed by Saundra Hattrick, Boynton, Ashtin Hedges and Nelson.
The JOAT Labs Hornets will be a part of the Friday night portion of the Western States Dwarf Car Nationals on August 3rd. For further information, go to www.southernoregonspeedway.com

|| Saturday Night Racer / SATURDAY NIGHT RACER / Racing Season Continues Saturday At Siskiyou Speedway
on: 07/19/18 at 6:42pm
| Racing Season Continues Saturday At Siskiyou Speedway
Yreka, CA...Weather and a difficult fire season has taken a toll on racing season at Siskiyou Motor Speedway this year. Earlier this year, two events were rained out as the track was trying to hold them. Not long into the attempts to run heat races, both events were canceled due to the rain. When the Hornbrook fire broke out two weeks ago, the fire crews used the Siskiyou Fairgrounds as a base camp. This forced the cancellation of the July 9th and 14th races. Word came out on Wednesday evening that the July 21st race will happen. Saturday night is being billed as Christmas in July. This is an annual event that features kids rides in the race cars and free gifts to all Jr. Fan members. The track's regular IMCA Sport Modified and Mini Stock divisions are scheduled to appear along with the Calculated Comfort Outlaw Pro Stock Association.
Dr Scott Lenz won the most recent Pro Stock race, which was his second victory at the track this year and third on the circuit. Lenz is showing no signs of slowing down from last year, when he won the association championship. His lead right now over Scott Flowers is 38 points. Flowers always seems to be near the top of the point list, but it's been a few years since he's put his car in the Winner's Circle. He has two seconds and a third at Siskiyou Speedway this year, and that's good enough to keep him 20 points ahead of his son, James Flowers.
Interestingly enough, fourth place Matt Harlow is the only driver in the field who has earned Top 5 finishes in all four races in Yreka so far. His best effort came in the most recent race, where he finished third. This has put Harlow six points behind James Flowers for third, eight points ahead of Steve Borror. Borror won the season opener and finished second at the most recent race, but the 2016 association champion skipped a race. Numbers have been up for the group this year in Yreka, and Ginny Flowers, Johnny Cobb, John David Duffie, Julia Flowers with Roy Bain count themselves among the Top 10 in the standings at the moment.
The IMCA Sport Modified division went into their ninth event before finally seeing a repeat winner in 2016 champion Jimmy Lipke. Jimmy has chosen to miss some races to test his ability against other drivers at other tracks, but his second win moved him into third in the standings. The leader after nine events is Trevor Tiffee. Trevor is having a bit of a Cinderella Season. It's not likely that people expected him to be the point leader at this stage of the season, but with six Top 5 finishes including a first and a second, he has a real shot at collecting the championship. Ryder Boswell is shown in second, though he now is a ways behind after missing a race.
There are a few names absent from the roster this year, but the competitive nature of this division continues the trend from last year. You really never know who will win on any given week. Victories have been earned by Jorddon Braaten, Justin Foux, reigning champion DJ Bottoms, Tim Elias, Matt Sanders, Keith Brown Jr, Lipke and Tiffee. There are still a few drivers knocking on the door to victory, including rookie Ethan Killingsworth, who finished second last time out, and Boswell, Cory Biggs and Randy Wright, who have finished as high as third.
The experience factor seems to be playing out to the advantage of reigning champion Marilyn Yawnick, Terry Kendrick and Mike Whitaker in the Mini Stock race. These three drivers are all running closely in the championship battle. Yawnick, however, is the only driver with a feature win of the three so far this year. She's posted three wins and finished second twice. Kendrick and Whitaker each have two seconds and three third place finishes. The way things are going, this battle may go down to the wire.
The division has seen a couple of newcomers join the field. Darek Alford and Zac McMurray are both in their teens. McMurray currently leads the rookie race ahead of Jason Frost, and much like the championship battle, there's only a few points separating these two. Because Alford missed a race in the former Devon Weiser car, he's a bit further back. However, he does have two heat race wins and two fifth place feature finishes. 2015 champion David Steele makes visits to the speedway and has five wins to his credit so far. Other drivers in the field including Dennis Jorgensen, Aaron Jorgensen, Mike Frost, Tiffany Cobb and Heather Ryan.
Fans looking to fill their need for speed will get a good show on Saturday night with this three division lineup. For further information, go to www.siskiyoumotorspeedway.com

on: 07/19/18 at 6:41pm
| Tidal Wave Weekend Coming To Coos Bay Speedway
Coos Bay, Oregon...This weekend, Coos Bay Speedway has a big event planned for the oval track. It is the two day Tidal Wave Late Model weekend. For the NASCAR Super Late Models, the Sunday portion of the program will include a Main Event paying $200 minimum to start and $1,200 to win. Other divisions competing on both nights will be the Sportsman Late Models, Street Stocks, Mini Outlaws and Hornets.
It took competition from outside the area to snap the win streak that Brody Montgomery was on. On that occasion, Portland's Joey Tanner came to town and won the Main Event and $300 bounty for beating Montgomery. Tanner commented that he planned to come back for this weekend's big event. The fact is, there could be a few other top teams from out of town for this one as well. On the night that Tanner won, Casey Vitale and Tom Elam made it an out-of-towner sweep of the podium.
Montgomery is a six-time winner so far this year as he holds a commanding 102 point lead over Chris Ray. Last race, Brody had his hands full battling 2016 point runner up Thor Kristenson to get that win. Kristenson is 30 points behind Ray, and the point fund money being contested over for second and third in the standings is not insignificant. Other local area drivers to watch for this week include Richard Wallace, Wayne Butler, Kristy Grout, Deven Brown and 2015 champion Toby McIntyre.
Brown and Butler have been doing some racing in both the Super Late Model and Sportsman Late Model classes this year. Brown won the most recent Sportsman Late Model race. Dyllan Siewell leads the standings by 54 points over two-time champion Butler, and he's also picked up five feature victories to four wins for Butler. Tom Williams will be hoping to rebound from a disappointing outing on Tuesday night, and other drivers to watch for include Charlie Withers, Justin Krossman and Stacy Robison.
The Street Stock division has been interesting to watch lately as more drivers have been coming out to race. Ken Fox picked up his fifth win of the season at the recent Tuesday night event. It was Steve Dubisar winning on Saturday night ahead of fellow two-time winner Daniel Land. These three are anticipated this week along with second ranked David Smith, Jeff Thurman and Troy Chamberlain.
Since he was the last driver still running on Tuesday, Mini Outlaw point leader Sam Talon ran with the Street Stocks and finished fifth in that race. Talon has dominated the point race and has eight feature wins. Jason Kellam has been giving Talon the most competition of late, and the two-time winner finds himself in a tie for second with one-time winner John Henry. Thomas Siewell, Carl Johnson and John Carpenter are other drivers to watch for this week.
Tyler Tullos is having a remarkable rookie season in the Hornet division. Tullos now has four feature wins out of nine Top 5 finishes. Second place is where the battle is in points as "Hurricane" Hannah Robison and April Warmack are tied after Robison picked up a pair of third place finishes in a four day span. Robison has shown her toughness this year as she rebounded from having her car catch fire earlier this season to win a Main Event. She has been very consistent with seven Top 5 finishes, and it's making things interesting between she and one time winner Warmack. Four time winner Braden Fugate, David Pellum, Kris Parker and Chuck Peck are other drivers to watch for in this weekend's big two day show.
The fans have been treated to some great racing and other entertainment at Coos Bay Speedway all season, and this trend figures to continue this week and in the weeks ahead. For further information, go to www.coosbayspeedway.us

|Special Event Planned For Central Valley Mini Stocks At Lemoore Raceway On Sunday
Lemoore, CA... Sunday will be a special occasion for the Central Valley Mini Stocks at Lemoore Raceway. Not only is it the fifth round of their championship season, but there will be a true legend on hand. West Coast Stock Car Hall of Famer Kenny Takeuchi will be there to meet the fans.
Kenny announced Super Modified races at several venues throughout California. He was known as one of the best announcers in the sport. He took great pride in doing his research on the racers so that he could let the fans know some interesting facts and statistics about each driver they were watching. He even wrote the articles that were printed in various publications.
These days, Kenny still announces the occasional race for the Legends Of Kearney Bowl Super Modifieds. Several of those Vintage Super Modified cars will be on display for the fans to see on Sunday afternoon. Many of these cars have been restored and were raced years ago. The owners take great pride in keeping these cars in pristine condition.
When it comes to the racing action, it's the Baronian brothers leading the championship standings. With multiple victories, Greg Baronian holds a 34 point advantage over Rod Baronian. Rod held off Greg to win the season opener. The margin is much closer between second and third as Dan Myrick trails Rod by just eight points. Myrick has been slowly getting his car dialed in and hopes to get his first feature win of the season on Sunday. He may need that with Ryan Doglione just five points behind him in fourth. Dan's father, reigning champion Danny Myrick, is only 10 points out of third.
The Mini Stocks will run a program that calls for qualifying on the clock, followed by a Trophy Dash, heat races, Semi Main (if needed) and Main Event. Other drivers anticipated for Sunday include Jeff Durant, Chris Goldsmith, Ben Davis, Randy Brown Jr. and Scott Glenn. Word is there will be some visitors coming from out of town as well.
If that's not enough, there will be special 50/50 drawings for various raffle prizes throughout the afternoon. The event is sponsored by John Miller Hay Co and Four Banger Garage. For further information, go to www.centralvalleyministocks.com

Furr, Burke Win At Ocean Speedway
Watsonville, CA...July 13...Brad Furr scored the victory in the 30 lap Taco Bravo Sprint Car Main Event Friday night at Ocean Speedway. Furr was trailing Koen Shaw by 4 points in the standings coming into the night, and his second win of the season may have gained him the lead. Reigning King Of The West Sprint Car champion Bud Kaeding led through two early yellow flags ahead of Cole Macedo. However, Macedo's run in second came to an end at a lap 18 caution flag. Furr led Sanders and Ryan Bernal into the Top 3 positions as Kaeding slipped back to fifth. Furr ran strong during the final 10 circuits and collected the satisfying victory ahead of Sanders. Kaeding made a late charge back into third as Jerry Bonnema, Tanner Boul, Jeremy Chisum, Kurt Nelson, Shaw, Blake Carrick and Jason Chisum completed the Top 10.
Macedo set the fast time in qualifying with his lap of 11.714 around the quarter-mile clay oval. Furr was second quick at 11.759. Bonnema won the first eight lap heat race ahead of Bernal.

IMCA Modified point leader Cody Burke maintained his lead with his second 25 lap Main Event win of the season. Danny Wagner set the pace for five laps before Burke made his move by to take over. Bobby Hogge IV was in third on a lap nine restart and raced past Wagner for second. During the final 15 laps, Burke led with Hogge right behind him waiting for just one mistake. However, Burke ran a smooth and flawless race for the well earned win. Hogge settled for second, followed by Brian Cass, Wagner, Austin Burke, DJ Shannon, Alex Wilson, Robert Miller, Tim Yeager Jr and Robert Dias. Hogge and Wilson each won eight lap heat races.
Point leader Matt Kile won his fourth 20 lap American Stock Main Event of the season. Kile led at the start ahead of JC Elrod.

However, Kile was not to be denied as he scored the victory, followed by Elrod, Rob Gallaher, Terry Campion, Nick Lawrence, Tony Oliveira, Jerry Skeleton, Joe Gallaher, John Farrell and DJ Keldsen. Rob Gallaher and Campion each scored wins in their eight lap heat races.
Zach Price won the 20 lap South Bay Dwarf Car Main Event. Ryan Amlen led the way for nine laps. Gene "Punky" Pires settled into second, but his run came to an end for a lap eight yellow flag. Amlen led just one more lap before surrendering the lead to Price. Price led the rest of the way for the victory. Amlen lost the second position briefly to Mark Biscardi on lap 11 but made his way back into second on a lap 17 restart to claim the position for good. Biscardi settled for third, followed by Marty Weisler, Trafton Chandler, Mac Aceves, Cameron Diatte, Brady Beck, Andy Claeson and Pires. Cameron Diatte and Price won the eight lap heat races.
Nate Teramo led all 15 laps to win the Mini Stock Main Event. He became the first two-time winner of the season as there have been eight different winners in nine races.

on: 07/19/18 at 6:38pm
| Golobic Rolls To Third King Of The West Sprint Car Win
At Petaluma Speedway
Petaluma, CA...July 14...Shane Golobic scored the victory in the 30 lap King Of The West/NARC Fujitsu Sprint Car Series Main Event Saturday night at Petaluma Speedway. This was his third win of the season aboard the Tarlton Motorsports entry, and the win paid $3,000. Golobic is currently second in series points. He charged out into the lead at the start, and the race had a red flag immediately when Marcus Dumesey and Colby Copeland ended up flipping on the back straightaway.
Golobic again grabbed the lead, followed by point leader Kyle Hirst. A low pass in Turn 3 of the ninth lap gained Bud Kaeding second, and he set his sights on leader Golobic. Tanner Thorson made the inside pass in Turn 2 on lap 12 to steal third from Hirst. In the waning laps, Kaeding began to pressure Golobic, but Golobic made a good pass on the outside of a slower car as they raced to the white flag. Golobic went on to score the satisfying victory ahead of Kaeding, Thorson, Hirst, Chase Johnson, Copeland, Jason Statler, Willie Croft, Sean Watts and Richard Brace Jr.
Kaeding set the quick lap of 12.779, beating the 12.826 effort of Hirst. The 19 car field ran three 10 lap heat races, and Golobic, Watts and Copeland picked up the wins. Golobic grabbed the pole for the Main Event by holding off Hirst to win the six lap Trophy Dash.
Mitch Machado continued his strong bid for The Lumberjacks Restaurant Super Stock championship by winning his 4th straight 25 lap Main Event and sixth of the season. Machado won by about six car lengths ahead of reigning champion Matt While. Manny Avilla was a distant third with Shawn McCoy the final lead lap finisher. Steve Studebaker, Tim O'Hara, Snazzy Duckworth, Sean Cook, Austin Ohlinger and Sid Hess rounded out the Top 10. Eight lap heat race wins were recorded by Machado and Studebaker.
After a rough start, reigning General Hydroponics Redwood Dwarf Car champion Dave Mosier seems to have hit his stride. Mosier won a good battle with Adam Teves and Chad Mathias to collect his third straight 25 Main Event victory. Scooter Gomes outran Zack Albers in another good battle for fourth as Mark Hanson, John Peters, Carol Mendenhall, Miranda Chappa and Brandon Gentry completed the Top 10 at the checkered flag. Teves, Hanson and Mosier each won their respective eight lap heat races.
Jeremy Tjensvold became the fourth straight different winner in the Jake's Performance Hobbies Mini Stock 20 lap Main Event. It was also his first start and he collected his win with Danny Manzoni close behind in second. Samone Chrisman was about a straightaway behind the leaders in third as Roberta Broze, Roy Dearing, Sean Hale, Trevor Rodriguez, Tom Brown, Dave Spindell and Sophie Shelley made up the remainder of the Top 10. Spindell and Brown each won six lap heat races.
Next Saturday night is another special Open Wheel themed show with the PitStopUSA.com Winged 360 Sprint Cars, a shootout race between the BCRA and USAC Western States Midgets and the Santa Rosa Auto Body 600 Micros.
