Kyle Larson Motors To Warren CAT Qualifying Night Win

Bryan Hulbert - TULSA, Okla. (January 15, 2019) Winning in preliminary night competition for the fifth time at the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire, California's Kyle Larson grabbed the lead on Lap 6 of Tuesday's Warren CAT Qualifying Night A-Feature then went unchallenged to punch his ticket into his eighth 55 Lap championship event.

Chasing Zach Daum, the first five laps, Larson tested top and bottom on the Tulsa Expo Raceway before rolling by the Illinois racer on the cushion exiting turn two. Moving top shelf in pursuit of the McDonalds No. 01, Daum as unable to keep pace as Larson reeled in slower traffic.

"That might be the second time I got Zach (Daum) in a prelim night," commented Larson. "They work the track before the feature so as the leader you just run the bottom until you hear somebody or see somebody. I was just able to get around him....It was just nice to get to the lead there and run a good pace, but I was hoping I would get a caution before I got close to traffic."

Working backmarkers by Lap 9, Larson's advantage changed very little before the caution lights lit up working Lap 16 a Kyle Jones spun his No. 7u almost directly in front of Kyle Larson. Able to avoid, Larson brought the field to speed with the lap count adjusted to the last fully completed lap.

Battling for second on the restart, Zach Daum came under fire from the Lonestar Speedway No. 15h of Sam Hafertepe, Jr. Briefly exchanging the runner-up spot, the Toyota No. 5d reclaimed the position, but the brief battle was enough to allow Kyle Larson room to run away.

Running into traffic once more, the caution flag flew again with five laps to run as Larry Wight's night ended with a cloud of smoke billowing out from beneath the bonnet of the No. 99.

Taking third prior to the caution, Jonathan Beason, from tenth, worked all over the back bumper of Zach Daum on the restart as the field continued to chase Larson. Smooth on the cushion, Larson crossed with 1.087 seconds of breathing room. Able to hold off Beason the final five laps, Zach Daum made his seventh championship event. Racing in and out of the top five most of the A-Feature, Michael Faccinto grabbed fourth with Sam Hafertepe, Jr. finishing fifth.

Fourth the first 16 laps, Tyler Courtney's run dimmed in the closing laps to sixth. Dillon Welch in seventh was trailed by Chili Bowl Rookie, Jesse Colwell. Ninth went to Alex Bowman with Tanner Berryhill making up the top ten.
Going 20 laps in the 11th annual Vacuworx Invitational Race of Champions, Tanner Thorson led nonstop for his second victory. Bringing a brand-new Clyde Lamar owned entry, the famed No. 3c from California was untouchable. Outrunning Kyle Larson to the win, the final podium step went to the hard-charging Christopher Bell, who came up 12 positions. Ryan Bernal and J.J. Yeley completed the top-five.

Tuesday's Warren CAT Qualifying Night at the 33rd annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire saw 69 drivers drawing in to bring the event total so far to 132 drivers checking in. Through the second night of action, the Chili Bowl Flip Count is up to 15. All drivers have been able to walk away.

CENTRAL PENNSYLVANIA’S LINCOLN SPEEDWAY SCHEDULES A PRESS CONFERENCE FOR 3 PM OPENING DAY (FRIDAY) OF PPB MOTORSPORTS SHOW; EXCITING FUTURE PLANS TO BE REVEALED

OAKS, PA January 11,2019 . . . A major announcement by Lincoln Speedway that is expected to catapult the historic Central PA Speedway to new heights has been scheduled for Friday at 3:00 PM on the PPB Motorsports Show’s Center Stage.

The press conference, which will take place one hour after the opening of the 2019 show in the Oaks, PA Greater Philadelphia Expo Center, will include announcements, followed by a question and answer session from the racing press on hand for the occasion.

Members of the working press intending to cover the event must file for credentials no later than Wednesday, January 16.

Registration may be completed by accessing the motorsportstradeshow.com website.

Friday afternoon PPB Motorsports attendees are encouraged to attend the Lincoln Speedway Press Conference to be the first to hear the exciting news.

Fans will also be able to observe firsthand the interplay between media and Speedway officials, learn the media protocol for asking questions, evaluating the nature of the dialogue and, subsequently, read how writers interpreted the same commentary seen firsthand.

Lincoln Speedway, located in Abbottstown, PA, opened on July 10, 1953 and has operated continuously on a weekly basis.

Originally featuring Flathead Stock Cars, Lincoln replaced Stock Cars with 30 x 90 ‘Bugs’ which subsequently became Sprint cars that are featured today.

Lincoln has hosted World Of Outlaw Sprint events in past years and has been a staple on the PA Speedweek schedule. Most all of Lincoln’s races have been on Saturday nights.

Major improvements over the years at Lincoln have included moving the pit area out of the infield and onto an area behind the backstretch, expansion of concession stands and creation of auxiliary parking areas.

The 34th edition of the Motorsports show covers more than 200,000 square feet of the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, Pa with just about everything imaginable in motorsports. More than 200 motorsports vehicles will be on display.

NASCAR Hall of Famers Darrell Waltrip and Ray Evernham will headline the show along with NASCAR Cup Series Rookie of the Year candidate Ryan Preece. Many well-known regional, local and national sports personalities will be on hand.

There will be a large number of displays with speedways offering information on their 2019 seasons. Hardcore racing vendors will be a big part of the show and fans will have the opportunity to gain some bargains from vendors offering collectible items.

A number of free industry seminars will be offered.

One of the most popular events during the three day show has been, and will again be, the Ms. Motorsports Pageant sponsored by Aqua Duck Water Transport that will see one woman walk off with a $1,500 cash prize along with a poster deal.

----------------------------------------

DARRELL WALTRIP’S FIRST NASCAR CUP RIDE TO BE ATTENTION GRABBER AT PPB MOTORSPORTS 2019 RACECAR AND TRADE SHOW JANUARY 18-20

WALTRIP WILL MEET FANS AND SIGN AUTOGRAPHS ON JANUARY 19

OAKS, PA January 13, 2019 . . . Out of the many race cars, more than 200, that will be on display during the PPB Motorsports 2019 Racecar and Trade Show, one that will get a huge amount of attention from attendees will be the two-tone brown No. 95 Terminal Transport 1971 Mercury Cyclone that NASCAR Hall of Famer Darrell Waltrip drove in his very first NASCAR Cup race.

The three day show, January 18-20, fills the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, Pa with just about everything imaginable in motorsports.

And that first Cup race for Waltrip was the 500-miler at Talladega in 1972. He finished 38th after blowing the engine.

“It was a 1969 Mercury when I bought the car from Holman and Moody,” said Waltrip, a three time NASCAR Cup Series champion. The car had quite a history. The car had quite a history as it used the same chassis as the Holman and Moody 1967 Ford Fairlane that Mario Andretti drove to victory in the Daytona 500.

“It is a nice old restored car with a lot of history,”Waltrip stated. “It is actually race ready.”

Since that first start in Cup racing Waltrip became a standout performer as he was able to tally 84 victories of which 37 happened on Superspeedways. He earned 59 Cup poles. He is the only driver to win $500,000 in a season 18 times. And in 1990 he became the first Cup driver to win $10 million.

The 71-year-old was not only a big winner in Cup Series racing but also won in the NASCAR Busch Series, ASA, IROC, ARCA, NASCAR All-American Challenge Series, All Pro, USAC and ARTGO Challenge Series. He was also a top competitor on short tracks in the Tennessee area when first starting his career.

The popular FOX Sports TV personality, an analyst during the FOX coverage of NASCAR events, will be on center stage at the show on Saturday afternoon for two hours to talk about his racing career, TV work, books, movies, and so much more that has been part of his colorful career. Attendees will be free to ask the man named one of NASCAR’s 50 Greatest Drivers questions. And, of course, there will be autographs.

Headlining the show will be Waltrip and Ray Evernham along with Ryan Preece who will be looking to capture the NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series Rookie of the Year honors.

There will be a large number of displays with speedways offering information on their 2019 seasons. Hardcore racing vendors will be a big part of the show and fans will have the opportunity to gain some bargains from vendors offering collectible items.

A number of free industry seminars will be offered.
