OSCAAR / Dan Archibald Picks Up Second Career OSCAAR Hot Rod Feature Victory
« Last post by CanadianRacingOnline on September 25, 2017, 07:05:12 PM »
Dan Archibald Picks Up Second Career OSCAAR Hot Rod Feature Victory

Going back and forth with Kenny McNicol at the front of the field, Dan Archibald scored his second career OSCAAR Hot Rod feature victory at Sunset Speedway’s Velocity 250.

The night didn’t start off cleanly, with Jerry Luckhardt and Nick Clarke going around on Lap 1 in turn one. Dan Archibald won the heat ahead of Kenny McNicol, Adam Misener, Dan Price, Tyler Hawn, Jerry Broom, Douglas Fischer, and Lance Foster.

Come feature time, the bad luck continued for Clarke as he’d head down pit road in the early laps with an issue. Meanwhile, the action on-track had fans entertained. Misener grabbed the early lead off the pole, with a thrilling three-wide battle behind him between Archibald, McNicol and Price for second.
Archibald got the spot, before chasing down Misener, and taking the lead. McNicol was quick to follow him through, along with Price, Hawn and Foster.

From there, the second half of the feature was all about the battle for the lead, as McNicol tried everything that he had to make a move on Archibald. Unfortunately, none of the tricks worked as it was Dan Archibald taking the win ahead of Kenny McNicol.

Behind them, Tyler Hawn made a couple strong mid-race passes to finish third, followed by Lance Foster in his OSCAAR Hot Rod debut. Dan Price rounded out the top-five after starting second, followed by Adam Misener, Jerry Broom, Douglas Fischer, Jerry Luckhardt, and Nick Clarke. Notably, the battle between Broom and Fischer had the attention of fans as they got close a couple times.

BShepp Brings Out the Broom
Three races. Three wins. 17 total for the season.

PARK CITY, KS- September 24, 2017- Brandon Sheppard brought out the broom on Sunday night at 81 Speedway after his third consecutive win with the World of Outlaws Craftsman® Late Model Series in just as many nights during the Great Plains swing. His winning streak started on Friday at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, KS, continued to Saturday at Salina Highbanks in Salina, OK, and concluded at 81 Speedway on Sunday evening in Park City, KS.


Sheppard's win at 81 Speedway marks 17 wins in the books for the dominate driver this season. He is now tied for second with Darrell Lanigan for most single-season wins putting him only one win behind the record set in 2016 by his predecessor in the Rocket No.1 , Josh Richards.


"Between Kansas and Oklahoma- man, some heck of some race tracks," said Sheppard. "They have some really awesome race tracks out here. Kind of darker dirt which is more like what I'm used to so I guess I just fit right in."


Sheppard passed race-long leader Tyler Erb on lap 24 of the 40-lap event before running away from the field in the remaining circuits.


Erb, who started second for the feature, was able to gain the lead from pole-sitter Austin Siebert on the first lap. In 10 laps time, the young gun was able to create a 3.808 second lead between his No. 91 and the rest of the field.


Siebert sat in second for the first half of the event before surrendering to Sheppard's charges on lap 22. The turning point for the race occured just one lap later when Brent Larson slowed between turns 3 and 4 bringing out the caution and clearing the ground Erb worked hard to create.


A single-file restart took the field back to green and Sheppard was able to capitalize. Sheppard chose the high line while Erb hugged the bottom of the 3/8-mile dirt oval. The duo, both driving in Rocket XR1s, crossed the line only 0.121 seconds apart.


In the remaining 16 laps, Sheppard expanded his lead to 4.469 seconds.


"I think we just made a little bit better call on tires than Erb did," said Sheppard. "I think he had a really good car but I think I found that top a little bit sooner than he did. I thought for sure his crew guy would tell him to go to the top after that caution but I don't know. I was still pretty far back at that point so maybe they didn't see me back there but man- what a heck of a year. It's been really great. I can't thank Mark Richards and Steve Baker enough. These [Rocket] XR1s are just phenomenal. These things are top-notch and second to none."


Erb settled for his sixth second-place run of the season and his fourth second-place run to his friend, Sheppard.


"I really didn't want to see the caution but it happens," said Erb. "It just wasn't my night. Running second to Sheppy is as close as you can get to a win. He's obviously the best car in the country. We were pretty good. We went a little softer on tires. It didn't really hurt us but once he got going I couldn't run that line up there. I'm just happy to run second. We've been kind of on a downhill for the past month or so."


Siebert rounded out the podium scoring his highest World of Outlaws finish to date.


"It was a good night and a good Sunday for us and it's awesome to be up here in third," said Siebert. "It's a confidence booster for me and my team. It's a lot trickier than the mods that we've run in the past. There's a lot to change and a lot to keep up on so it's just a learning curve but it feels good to be here right now."


The World of Outlaws Craftsman® Late Model Series has five more races on tap for the 2017 season with the next stop being at the Dirt Oval at Route 66 raceway in mid-October.

Blast Off: Sheppard claims 16th win
Junghans and Eckert round out podium

http://woolms.com/news/race-reports/267-2017-race-reports/2268-blast-off-sheppard-gets-win-16


SALINA, OK- September 24, 2017-For the second night in a row and the second of three nights during the World of Outlaws Craftsman® Late Model Series Great Plains swing, Brandon Sheppard walked away with the checkers. Sheppard battled Chris Madden for several laps of the 50-lap event but pulled away from the grasp of the No. 44 midway through the feature.
 
"The championship is what's on our mind right now," said Sheppard on his 16th win with the Series. "The ultimate goal when we come here is just to win the race. I have a hard-working team behind me. If I mess up they have my back, and if I win a race they have my back, but just a good group of guys. We have a good thing going so I hope we can keep it going for quite a few years."
 
Sheppard is steadily creeping up on the Series single-season win record of 18 wins set in 2016 by his predecessor in the Rocket Chassis house car, Josh Richards. Yet, with six races left in the season, Sheppard and his Rocket 1 team keep their focus on the race ahead of them.
 
"Right now, we're just riding a big wave," said Danny White, Crew Chief of the Rocket 1 Racing Machine. "It will crash down at some point but right now you just ride it and enjoy every moment you get. Yeah, maybe we don't celebrate like some other teams, but we'll be happy tonight and tomorrow is a new day with a new race to win. That's our goal. We'll celebrate a little bit tonight and we'll be ready tomorrow."
 
Sheppard has had an undeniably extraordinary season in 2017 and as he keeps pushing the limits on records across the nation, some may credit his car for his success. White said that everything is just "clicking".
 
"I know everyone says 'this is the house car. They have all this trick stuff' but this is as standard as you get," explained White. "They can say that we just out-budget everybody but this car has its second year on it. It has 125 to 130 races on it which is like 1,550 laps. We push everything to the limit just like everybody else does. We just have the best wheelman there is right now and everything is just clicking. This is fun. This is the most fun season I have ever had. Even when we don't win, it's still fun."
 
Sheppard is on his way to claiming the Series championship title as he sits a solid 284 points ahead of Madden in second. Fans saw the battle between the pair come to life on the 3/8-mile track on Saturday night as the two exchanged the lead position several times early in the race.
 
On lap 14 Sheppard took command over the lead position once and for all, only being challenged once more for his position due to a caution on lap 45 that reset the field. The caution, which came out for Austin Siebert who got turned around in turn four, erased Sheppard's lead which had grown to a whopping 8-seconds over the rest of the field.
 
When the caution fell, Madden had fallen back to fifth after getting hung up in lapped traffic opening the door for Chase Junghans, Rick Eckert and Devin Moran to make their move up the chain.
"That lap traffic, it was just really hard to get around," said Junghans. "Sheppy got out there a ways but we had that restart and I was hoping I could hang with him on that restart and drive down to the bottom and slide him, but he did a good job. Them guys are really hard to beat this year so we'll take a second and move on. Hopefully tomorrow we just better this one spot tomorrow."
 
Rick Eckert rounded out the podium during the World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series first ever visit to Salina Highbanks Speedway.
 
"The track was really cool," said Eckert. "They did a great job with the track here and thanks to all of the fans for coming out. It's a pretty awesome place, it really is."
 
The Series heads to 81 Speedway in Park City, KS on Sunday to wrap up the three-race Great Plains swing.

Outlaws / David Gravel Scores 14th Victory of Season at Lernerville
« Last post by CanadianRacingOnline on September 25, 2017, 07:02:29 PM »
David Gravel Scores 14th Victory of Season at Lernerville


Sweet, Schatz complete podium; $50,000 to win Champion Racing Oil National Open up next


SARVER, PA - David Gravel survived a pair of late caution flags and held off Brad Sweet to pick up his 14th victory of the season at Lernerville in the running of the Commonwealth Clash. Gravel saw the white flag on two separate occasions only to see a caution come out both times. Gravel led all 37 (extended because of the yellows) laps over Sweet and Donny Schatz.
 
Gravel and the CJB Motorsports team, who did a scheduled engine change after Qualifying, won their heat race before finishing second in the Craftsman Club Dash.
 
Gravel got the jump on fellow front row starter Brad Sweet and led the opening three laps before a Red Flag for Jason Sides, who took a wild crash on the front stretch and off of turn one, stopped the action. Thankfully, Sides walked away from the accident under his own power.
 
On the ensuing restart, Sweet took the lead from Gravel down the backstretch but a caution for Lernerville Track Champion AJ Flick, who had major front end damage, negated the pass.
 
On lap eight, fourth-place running Daryn Pittman jumped the tricky cushion in turn four bringing out the caution. A handful of laps later Brent Marks, who was running in the top ten, suffered the same fate.
 
Brad Sweet fell off the banking in turn two allowing Sheldon Haudenschild to take over the second spot at the time of the open red flag on lap 14. Sheldon began closing in on Gravel, before making the same mistake as Sweet off of two and letting the aforementioned re-gain second.
 
As laps winded down, Gravel grappled with heavy lapped traffic allowing Sweet to close in. Sweet lurked behind the CJB Motorsports No.5 before making a bid for the lead with a slide job attempt off of turn four, to no avail. The unsuccessful slider allowed Gravel to pull away.
 
On the final circuit, Danny Holtgraver ended up backwards in turn two setting up a Green, White, Checkered finish. Gravel again commanded control on the restart before taking the white flag, only to see another caution. Gravel was strong once again on the restart and this time went on to pick up the victory.
 
"I didn't really know what to do. I knew I didn't want to give the bottom away," Gravel said about the multiple restarts. "I saw Brad stick his nose under me early and I knew I had to step it up," the Watertown, CT native said in Victory Lane.
 
"Once David got control, it was tough to get by him. We had lots of chances in lapped traffic, but could not get the job done," Sweet said following his runner-up finish.
 
Donny Schatz quietly worked his way forward from seventh to complete the podium. Shane Stewart and Friday's winner at Eldora, Tim Shaffer completed the top five. Kraig Kinser, Jason Johnson, Daryn Pittman (from the rear), Logan Schuchart and Chris Andrews completed the top ten. Danny Holtgraver picked up the KSE Hard Charger award.
 
The World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series returns to action this Thursday, Friday and Saturday in the heart of Pennsylvania Posse country, at the Williams Grove Speedway. The unique 3-day Champion Racing Oil National Open awaits The Greatest Show on Dirt. Saturday's National Open finale pays a whopping $50,000 to win.

Outlaws / Tim Shaffer Scores Eldora Victory
« Last post by CanadianRacingOnline on September 25, 2017, 07:02:01 PM »
Tim Shaffer Scores Eldora Victory


Shaffer becomes 18th different winner of 2017 with WoO; Schatz and Saldana complete podium


ROSSBURG, OH - September 22, 2017 - The 'Steel City Outlaw' Tim Shaffer held off Donny Schatz to win the Night Before the 4-Crown Nationals at Eldora. Shaffer was strong all night going second quick in his Flight in qualifying, winning his heat and scoring the Craftsman Club Dash victory. As laps winded down, Schatz closed significantly in on Shaffer, but couldn't pull ahead. The margin of victory was .227 seconds. Joey Saldana came forward to complete the podium.
 
Shaffer earned the pole by winning the Craftsman Club Dash, where Shane Stewart moved from fourth to second to earn the other front row starting spot. Shaffer, who has an Eldora win earlier this year with the Arctic Cat All-Star Circuit of Champions, got the early jump in the Feature working the top side of the famous half-mile. Stewart was closing in on Shaffer before shredding a right rear tire on lap 13. It was the second consecutive night, dating back to last weekend at Calistoga, Stewart lost a tire running in second.
 
Schatz assumed second as Shaffer once again stretched his lead. With ten laps to go, Shaffer had a comfortable lead as he reached traffic. Schatz began working the line a car-length off of the cushion and closing on the leader, noticeably in turns three and four.
 
With two to go, Schatz looked poised to make his bid for the lead, but Shaffer's momentum on the top side of the Speedway was too much as he became the 18th different winner with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series in 2017.
 
"That's a great team," Shaffer said in Victory Lane in regards to Donny Schatz / Tony Stewart Racing No.15 group. "We have a great team too, we keep building and getting better. We've got wins all over this year, but to get an Outlaw win at Eldora is really special. This is one tough place," Shaffer said upon exiting his Demyan-Rudzik Racing No.49X.
 
Schatz credited Shaffer, "Second sucks, we just couldn't find a way around them. They were really good. We'll take it and move on."
 
Joey Saldana completed the podium in the Indy Race Parts No.71. "We had a really good car. I felt like I could move around in lapped traffic. The track was so fast. We had a lot of fun," the Brownsburg, Indiana native said about his podium finish.
 
Jason Johnson and David Gravel completed the top five. Brent Marks picked up KSE Hard Charger Honors coming from 22nd to finish eighth. Early race contender Shane Stewart made it back to 13th.
 
The World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series travels to Western Pennsylvania Saturday evening for the Commonwealth Clash at the Lernerville Speedway in Sarver. For more information on Saturday's event, click here.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 


Richards Maintains Points Lead After Brownstown

 
 
ST MARYS, Ohio (Sept. 25, 2017) – Josh Richards continues to lead the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series point standings after bringing home a fourth-place finish on Friday and an 11th-place finish on Saturday at Brownstown (Ind.) Speedway.
 
The Best Performance Motorsports team began their weekend of racing at Brownstown Speedway on Friday with qualifying where Richards turned the fifth quickest lap in Group A. His time trial effort lined him up in third for Heat Race 1. When the green flag flew the field quickly spread out nose-to-tail and Richards held his position throughout the 10-lap event to finish third. With the top-four cars in each heat locked into the Feature, Richards was guaranteed the ninth starting spot for the 30-lap A-Main.
 
Lining up on the inside of Row 5, Richards quickly advanced to seventh on Lap 1. He was up to fifth on Lap 5 and had muscled his way to fourth by Lap 10. With the field beginning to spread out and the frontrunners approaching lapped traffic, Richards moved all over the track trying to find as much speed as possible. Though he was trying everything he could, Richards was unable to gain any more ground in the caution-free race, ultimately finishing fourth.
 
Saturday marked the final night of racing at the Indiana track and again the evening began with qualifying. This time, Richards qualified ninth quickest in Group B. His qualifying result lined him up in the fifth starting spot for Heat Race 3. The 29-year-old gained one spot in the 10-lap event to finish fourth. His heat race finish guaranteed him the 14th starting spot for the night’s 100-lap finale.   
 
Starting on the outside of Row 7, Richards had worked his way up to 12th on Lap 3 when the night’s first caution flag flew. The West Virginia native was running in 11th at Lap 10 and remained there until another caution period on Lap 14. Forced to restart on the outside, Richards slipped back to 12th, but by Lap 19 he was back in the 11th position. Richards remained in 11th until handling issues caused him to slip back to 13th at the halfway point of the 100-lap race. Giving it all he had Richards muscled his way back to 12th just three laps later and he continued on in that position until the final caution flag of the evening flew on Lap 73. On the ensuing restart handling issues continued to plague Richards and he slipped back to 14th. He spent the remaining 26 laps fighting his way back to an 11th-place finish in a race that saw little passing.
 
Richards remains first in the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series point standings after racing at Brownstown Speedway.
 
The Best Performance Motorsports team is scheduled to return to action Sept. 30 at Dixie Speedway in Woodstock, Ga., and Oct. 1 at Rome (Ga.) Speedway.
 
Friday Race Results

JOSH RICHARDS QUOTES: “We had a pretty good car on Friday night, so we didn’t make many changes for Saturday. The track surface was so different on Saturday we just fought handling issues all evening. We were ok at the start of the Feature, but once the grip went away we couldn’t make up any ground.
 
“We’ll go back, regroup and get everything ready for this weekend at Dixie (Speedway) and Rome (Speedway) in Georgia.”

#34 Always Towing Impala of Mike Schroeder at 50 points.  Scott Barrand
was second in the #1 TailGatorz Monte Carlo with 48 points and the #14

Each of the Run-Your-Junk cars ran a warm up 10 lap heat race before all
33 were set loose on the 3/8 mile pave oval of crashing and pushing fun.
 In the end it was a three-peat winner, Alyssa Derdall winning her third
Run-Your-Junk feature in a row in the #14 Always Towing car.   #43 Scott
Ellason was second and the #71x of Blaine Hancock was third.

NASCAR PINTY’S SERIES SET TO AIR IN THE US ON MAVTV

CANADA’S PREMIER NATIONAL RACING SERIES WILL

REACH 25 MILLION AMERICAN HOUSEHOLDS!

 

TORONTO, ONTARIO (SEPTEMBER 25, 2017) – Since its debut in 2007, the NASCAR Pinty’s Series has built a strong following among Canadian racing fans as the nation’s top professional motorsports series.

Featuring Canada’s elite racers and teams competing at the country’s top stock car ovals, road courses and motorsports events, the NASCAR Pinty’s Series is the pinnacle of racing in Canada. In October – for the first time ever – American racing fans will also be able to experience the excitement of this incredibly competitive series when it begins airing in the US on MAVTV.

Within weeks of the series crowning its champion, on September 23 at Ontario’s all-new Jukasa Motor Speedway, MAVTV will commence broadcasting the tour’s 13 races over the course of 12 consecutive weeks.

Based in Corona, California, MAVTV is carried in 25 million US households and offers an unparalleled line-up of exclusive motorsports, including The Chili Bowl and the AMA Pro Motocross series. The NASCAR Pinty’s Series shows are produced by Fuel MediaLab and TSN, with events broadcast throughout the season on TSN and RDS2.

<!--[if !vml]--><!--[endif]-->“Pinty’s is very pleased to be associated with MAVTV and its unique and authentic programming,” said Tony Spiteri, VP Marketing/R&D for Pinty’s Delicious Foods. “We have much in common with our target audiences and we’re looking forward to a mutually beneficial partnership.”

The concept of putting Canada’s top stock car series on the air in the US isn’t new. The CASCAR Super Series was the predecessor to the NASCAR Pinty’s Series and those races had a huge following, in the US, when they aired following the conclusion of the NASCAR Cup Series season.

“When our CASCAR races previously aired in America, we gained a lot of fans who were hungry for our brand of Canadian short track and road racing events,” said NPS TV producer Joel Robinson, of Fuel MediaLab. “The NASCAR Pinty’s Series showcases the same professional, talented and aggressive driving so we’re confident it will once again strike a chord with American racing fans when it airs on MAVTV.”

            The 13-race NASCAR Pinty’s Series consists of 12 shows. Nine of the broadcasts will be 60 minutes in length, while three will be 90 minutes long. For information, contact Joel Robinson at joel@jravideo.com.
