COMPETITION SUSPENSION INC. JOINS MID-ATLANTIC SPRINT SERIES SPONSOR ROSTER FOR 2017

BROWNSBURG, IN

By ERIKA PALMAI WAGNER

Competition Suspension Inc. (CSI) has joined the growing list of contingency partners with the Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series, becoming the first of three heat race title sponsors for the 2017 season. CSI will be providing a $50 gift certificate to the winner of heat race #1 at each MASS event.

“We are happy to be a part of series which supports the Racesaver ideology which is growing stronger and steadier each year,” head of marketing at CSI, Brent Beauchamp stated. “Racesaver is a fantastic stepping stone into a full-sized sprint car, as well as an affordable way to be able to keep racing a sprint car with a working man’s budget.”

Located in their 9,500 square foot facility in Brownsburg, Indiana, Competition Suspension Inc. was founded in 2009, choosing to focus on short track technology since they believed that “attention was lacking in this area”. Their motto is to “build the best shocks in the industry, not cutting corners on anything, while producing reasonably priced shocks for every racer”. Responsible for over 2,500 feature wins and counting, numerous track, regional and national championships world wide, CSI is committed to perfection, passion and constantly pushing the envelope in developing the latest technologies in order to improve the performance of their shocks and components.

Offering numerous services such as shock repair, dynoing, torsion bar analysis, spring rating and custom engineering on any suspension part or accessory you may need, Competition Suspension Inc. has a small, but dedicated staff of racers who care about the quality of their product as well as keeping customer satisfaction as one of their main goals. CSI has four different shock packages made exclusively for 305 winged sprint cars, which differentiate according to track conditions. More information on these packages can be found on their website at www.csishocks.com.

“CSI is first class operation, and their product is something that I have been loyal to since 2013,” 2016 IMCA/TSRS champion Tim Tanner Jr. expressed. “They have always been very easy to talk to on the phone, and they sell you just what you need to get you into victory lane”.

“When I finally switched over to CSI shocks last year, the stability of my car was noticeably better,” Tommy Carberry, a 2016 feature winner replied when asked about his experience with Competition Suspension Inc. “I can call any of the support staff at CSI at anytime, and they will always point me in the right direction”.

CSI can be contacted by phone (317-858-8775), email (garrett@csishocks.com) or by fax (317-858-8766). Please check out their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/csishocks/ or their website at www.csishocks.com.

TENTH ANNUAL QUAKER STEAK & LUBE DIRT TRACK HEROES SHOW SUPPORTS THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY

The dates for the popular tenth edition of the week long Quaker Steak & Lube Dirt Track Heroes Show have been confirmed for 2017 and the hard-working show staff and the many historical groups and speedways are putting all of the necessary pieces in place to produce another great show. The successful event will once again begin its week long run at the Phillipsburg Mall located off Route 22 East in Phillipsburg, New Jersey beginning on Sunday, March 5th and will run through March 11th. The upcoming show encompasses the majority of the local short track scene and has become a must go to event for the local Tri-State area.

Quaker Steak & Lube, or The Lube(r) to loyalists, the award-winning casual dining concept known for its Best Wings USA and over 25 signature sauces, is fully prepped and geared as the lead sponsor for the Tenth Annual Dirt Track Heroes Car Show. Quaker Steak & Lube, which opened in Phillipsburg, New Jersey in August of 2014, has been extremely pleased with the excellent results and the great feedback they have received since partnering with the popular annual racing oriented show. The Pohatcong Township (Phillipsburg, NJ) Quaker Steak & Lube is located at 1304 US Route 22, Phillipsburg, NJ, and welcomes all race fans and families to stop by their location when visiting the New Jersey area to be re-charged and re-fueled.

IRCO Community Federal Credit Union will once again lend their solid support to the popular show. IRCO was formed in 1966 and has grown in leaps and bounds to it's present state today. IRCO serves over 8,000 members with assets exceeding $73,000,000. IRCO remains a locally-owned and staffed community financial institution. Greg Collins, vice president at the Phillipsburg, New Jersey based IRCO Community Federal Credit Union as well as the noted historian of the Harmony Speedway remarked, "As we countdown to the opening day of the show, IRCO and myself are extremely happy with all of the response for the upcoming show. When we started this event back in 2008 we had no idea where we were going but were aware of many good people wanting to be involved." Collins further added, "The nucleous of good people along with great sponsors, has fueled this event to a must see event. We are overjoyed to once again play an integral part in the success of the Dirt Track Heroes Show."

The Quaker Steak & Lube Dirt Track Heroes Show is pleased to announce its support of Saint John's Angels, a Phillipsburg based American Cancer Society Relay for Life Team. Team members will be present throughout the duration of the week long show sellng baked goods and purple ribbon-branded Relay for Life merchandise in support of their participation in the Phillipsburg area's Relay for Life event to be held Saturday, May 20th. This annual event will be held at the Maloney Stadium right off of Route 22. The Saint John's Angels team has participated in this long-standing event since 2003.

The restored race cars represent racing's past or what many race fans refer to as the "Golden Era" of auto racing. The great spirit of the event takes the great fan base of racing back to a special time in their lives when they could hop into their family jitney and travel less than a half hour to witness the excitement and spectacle of a night at the races. Some of the cars in attendance will be original works, some of the race cars are replicars of famous cars re-created to look much like the racers the legendary drivers drove to glory at one of the many speedways that hosted racing events. The great cars and the preserved memories gain far more impact when the fans have the opportunity to chat with many of the legendary drivers who will be making special appearances at the Mall during the week long event. All historical racing groups including Tri State, Flemington, Nazareth, Dorney Park, Harmony and Reading will have their memorabilia on display and their many scrapbooks open for the fans to take another long look at the glory years of racing and possibly find a picture or two they want to purchase as a keepsake from past glory or racing exploits.

Current day race cars are displayed by race teams to gain fan exposure and interest for themselves and their sponsors and create the "buzz" for the mall walkers to visit a race track in their immediate area. The cars are displayed to also exhibit the new and changing technology associated with racing and with the many restored race cars on site, depicts the evolution of the many eras of racing ingenuity. The fans can visit the Dirt Track Heroes Car Show and on any given night, meet the guys and gal drivers who pilot these four-wheel high-powered race cars. The show remains absolutely FREE to the public as it has been since first landing at the Phillipsburg Mall ten years ago.

In previous events, cars on display included big block and small block Modifieds, Sportsman, all divisions of Micro-Sprints, Midgets, all divisions of Sprint Cars, Slingshots, Stage One Modifieds, X-Cel Modifieds, Drag Cars, Late Models, SpeedSTRS, Go-Karts and a broad variety of vintage and restored race cars. Hamlin, Mahoning, Snydersville, Accord, New Egypt, Brudgeport and Snydersville will again be among the many speedways involved with the 2017 edition of the show. The week-long event will set aside one evening to salute the "Stars of Tomorrow" with a special night for the budding young racing talents competing with the many quarter midget clubs in the area and this night has proven to be one of the highlights of the week as many of the youngsters will be giving their first ever interviews to a large crowd.

The Dirt Track Heroes Car Show will again offer a great tribute keepsake event souvenir program book and apparel. The Phillipsburg Mall is open Sunday 11 AM to 6 PM; Monday through Saturday from 10 AM to 9 PM.

BARBERVILLE, FLA. - Feb. 20, 2017 - On Sunday, February 19 a racecar involved in a multi-car accident became airborne and landed off the racing surface, injuring three participants during the 46th annual DIRTcar Nationals, a World of Outlaws-sanctioned dirt track racing event hosted by Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, Fla.

The three individuals were standing in what is commonly referred to as the "pit area" or "pits." The pit area at a World of Outlaws event is separate from the main grandstand and is where the teams participating in the event stage their race cars and support equipment. The individuals struck by the race car were treated immediately by emergency personnel on hand at the event and transported to Halifax Medical Center in Daytona Beach, Fla.

While racing side by side entering Turn 1 at the Speedway several sprint cars touched sparking a chain reaction accident in the middle of the 24-car field. One car was hit by another and subsequently made heavy contact with a steel guardrail betweens Turn 1 and Turn 2. The car's momentum carried it forward flipping it into the air and towards the catch fence. The car made contact with the upper portion of the catch fence in Turn 2, tumbling over the fence. As it was coming to a stop it struck the individuals referenced above. The driver of the race car was not injured.

The guard rail used at Volusia Speedway Park is the same type of guardrail used on most major interstates across America and can be found at motorsports venues of all types and classifications. The catch fence installed at Volusia Speedway Park relies on a combination of steel posts, wire mesh and heavy duty steel retention cables as is common in motorsports applications. The World of Outlaws will run 148 races at 83 different race tracks in 32 states during the 2017 season. Each facility is unique, but must meet the safety requirements established by its insurance provider in order to host a World of Outlaws event.

"The safety and well being of every individual attending a World of Outlaws, whether as a participant in the pit area, a fan in the grandstand, a concession worker, race official or emergency responder is a priority." said World of Outlaws President Tom Deery. "The World of Outlaws compete at the best dirt tracks in the country, we are constantly evaluating and implementing new procedures to improve safety at our events and have already begun that process in response to this weekend's incident. We ask the racing community to keep the individuals who have not yet been released from the hospital in their prayers and plan to respect their privacy as requested by the families."

Three Is Company: Schatz Charges to Win, Gravel awarded the coveted 'Big Gator'

BARBERVILLE, Fla. - February 19, 2017 - Donny Schatz etched his name into DIRTcar Nationals history Sunday, winning both the afternoon and night show at Volusia Speedway Park. The trip down victory lane gave Schatz 17 career wins at the half-mile, and he captured three of the five sprint shows in the 12-day event.

With the victory, Schatz joined Jeff Swindell and Sammy Swindell as the only Outlaws to win multiple series races in one day. Jeff Swindell first accomplished the one-day sweep at Rolling Wheels (N.Y.) Raceway Park on October 8, 1994. Sammy Swindell matched his brother's feat in 1999 at Bloomington (Ind.) Speedway.

Though Schatz won the majority of the week's sprint car races, those he did not win proved to test his No. 15 Tony Stewart-Curb/Agajanian Racing team. In the World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series opener, Schatz qualified 24th in a 36-car pack and placed fourth in his heat race. Sunday night was similar, as Schatz only qualified seven positions better and placed fifth in his heat. What differed for the eight-time champion this time was his ability to move through the 26-car feature field.

"We didn't change anything," Schatz said. "I thought the car felt really good. I actually thought I could get to the middle pretty well, but that changed once we got that going. These guys are incredible with what they do. I love it."

Schatz started 17th in the 30-lap feature, but made quick work of those between him and a podium position. By the 12th lap Schatz skidded through the bottom, passing multiple drivers into fourth. The next lap Schatz made his move for third, getting under quick-timer Brian Brown. Brown won his way through the program, setting the quick time and eventually leading the feature into the green flag.

Within the final 10 laps and one position later, Schatz threatened for first. David Gravel, who took the lead on the fifth lap, maintained the top spot by building speed on the top cushion. Gravel said he felt comfortable "staying on top and running alone," but Schatz began to close the gap with each lap by cutting the corners out of turns three and four; lapped traffic gave Gravel enough real-estate to not alter his line. However with two laps remaining, the two barreled down the front stretch side by side - only for Schatz to catch him in turn one. Gravel said where he saved time with lapped traffic, he ended up giving time back at the end.

"We wanted to win there," Gravel said. "Lapped traffic got us. Sometimes we're better running second. I don't know what I could have done differently, but I did the best I could. Just leading all those laps you want to win."

Despite Gravel's shortcoming, in hindsight he said he had a good week. Having battled through four motor changes - the CJB Motorsports team had to get three more Kistler engines delivered to even be able to run the finale - he still advanced to the Craftsman® Club Dash in both shows. Because of the consistency, Gravel took home the coveted 'Big Gator' trophy, which is awarded to the top performing driver overall.

"We just need to continue to get better and run well," said Gravel, whose focus is helping refresh and replenish his team's inventory.

The series will head West for its annual Kick-off Tour. First, the Outlaws will tackle two Texas tracks from March 3-4: Lonestar Speedway and Gator Motorplex. For more information, visit woosprint.com/kick-off-tour.

Schatz from a Cannon, Reverses his luck to win second DIRTcar Nationals Gator

BARBERSVILLE, Fla. - February 19, 2017 - It's not unusual for two series champions to face-off in the 46th Annual DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park. In the first show of a Sunday double-header, eight-time World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series Champion Donny Schatz revisited his fierce battle with Arctic Cat All-Star Circuit of Champions titleholder Chad Kemenah. Like the Wednesday night thriller - starting in the first row with Kemenah - Schatz again established himself as the best-of-the-best between the two series.

But it did not come easily for the Fargo, N.D. native, who has now won a DIRTcar Nationals show every year since 2011. On Friday night Schatz finished 14thin the feature, his worst finish since the series opener last season (when he placed 18th). But Schatz said one major adjustment was opting for a harder tire.

"We did make some tire changes today and went with a harder tire," Schatz said. "I think it hurt us early in the race, but they don't pay for the first lap they pay for the last. The driver just showed up today with an attitude. I guess you could say he made all the mistakes in one night (Friday)."

Once the green flag was waved, Schatz overtook Kemenah and extended his lead to nearly one second. Kemenah reclaimed his spot before the race's first caution on the ensuing restart. In the race's most exhilarating exchange, the two danced around each other - inversely switching lines high and low. Schatz was the first to take the lead, wedging his car under Kemenah's in the second turn. Kemenah used the back-stretch to regroup, and butted his left-front tire nearly up against the inside wall in turn three for first position.

On Lap 14, strategy played to Schatz's favor. Schatz made the decision to start on the inside of the race's second caution - as the two made their passes on the bottom earlier. Schatz was successful on the restart. Kemenah dropped off Schatz's pace - nearly two tenths faster than the field with each lap. This left the door open for Friday night's winner Jason Johnson to slip by Kemenah and secure a second-place finish; Kemenah settled for third.

Like Schatz, David Gravel also underwent a roller-coaster of a week. Gravel won Thursday's All-Star finale, but since has blown four motors. Expending his reserve, CJB Motorsports sent for three new motors to be shipped to Volusia. Gravel said race engines "eat dirt every day," so self-inflicted malfunctions are bound to happen.

On his fifth Kistler motor, Gravel turned-around Friday's last place finish by first setting Sunday afternoon's quick time with a 13.453. He carried that momentum to his heat race, doubling on his successes. A small scare in the Craftsman® Club Dash when he got into the turn two wall. Escaping with only minor damage this was the only hiccup Gravel had throughout the show, ultimately collecting his first World of Outlaws top-five performance of the year.

"When that fifth motor is good enough to quick time, it speaks to how good our engine program is," said Gravel, who added that he never lost doubt in his Kistler Engine package. "We never give up. We screwed up a little in the dash, but we just kept looking forward. There's no reason why we can't win tonight."

With the victory, Schatz can become the first Outlaw since Jeff Swindell and Sammy Swindell to win multiple series races in one day. Jeff Swindell first accomplished the one-day sweep at Rolling Wheels (N.Y.) Raceway Park on October 8, 1994. Sammy Swindell matched his younger brothers feat in 1999 at Bloomington Speedway.

Johnson Takes Flight in Outlaws Opener,Wins first career Gator at DIRTcar Nationals

BARBERSVILLE, Fla. - February 17, 2017 - Jason Johnson made a grand entrance into 2017 Friday night, winning the World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series opener at the 46th Annual DIRTcar Nationals. Johnson, whose 2016 season was highlighted by a Knoxville Nationals victory, took home his first Gator and a $10,000 purse.

"Yeah, 365 days later we start the season off in the best case scenario," said Johnson, rehashing on his team's troubles last season. "It's a long season, and you need to condition for it. My little [Jaxx] on FaceTime over there... he and my wife mean the world to me, and I wish he could be here for the win. [The win] is huge for our operation, for our team, for the people working on this team and for my self-confidence."

For Johnson's four World of Outlaws wins last season, Johnson brought his son up on stage to wave their index finger in the air symbolizing "No.1." This time Johnson scaled the wing of his No. 41 Priority Aviation Services, LLC/ Mesilla Valley Transportation Maxim car solo, but dropped back down to high-fives and hugs from his crew. Johnson, who was involved in a horrific wreck earlier in the week, opted to withdraw from the All-Star Circuit of Champions finale Thursday night. But one day later, consistently bested a 35 other cars on sprint car racing's biggest stage.

Johnson started on the outside of the first row for the 30-lap feature event. Where he started, is where he stayed. Johnson - continuing to stay on-top of the wheel and high on the track - darted to the front within the first lap. Sweet followed Johnson to the front but from the bottom. The first of three cautions came on the third lap, when David Gravel suffered from more mechanical failures. Notably, Gravel raced nearly 80 races without blowing a motor heading into this year's DIRTcar Nationals. The caution regrouped the field, giving Sweet the opportunity to recreate last season's season opener with a win.

"I'll tell you what, I really thought we were going to have something there for Jason," Sweet said. "I had to [eventually] move to the top but Johnson set a really torrid pace out there. He did it, so hats-off to him. We have two more nights so hopefully we can end up where he is."

Sweet swapped spots with Brian Brown throughout the race, but in the final two laps swiftly moved passed him on the front straightaway. Brown forfeited third to a red-hot Christopher Bell, who rounded-out the podium. Bell not only beat Johnson in the dash, but also set the night's quick time with a 13.121.

"I kind of struggled on starts and restarts there," said Bell, who led the feature field into the green flag. "Mistakes on my part for starts and restarts, but this thing is really fast. It's a great machine to drive. Thank you Tony [Stewart] for letting me come out and have some fun."

From the victory, Johnson leads the points championship for the first time in his career. As Sweet alluded to, Johnson's aggressive driving style opened up the "World's Fastest Half-Mile" for him. Earlier in the program, Johnson qualified third but claimed his stake for a Gator in the third heat. His car weaved in-and-around series newcomer Brent Marks. Though he was in a transfer spot, Johnson did not let off the gas.

He went on to start fourth in the Craftsman Club Dash and finish second after yet another battle - with Brown. Brown's uncle and crew member, 2001 Series Champion Danny Lasoski, is the most winningest sprint car driver at Volusia Speedway Park. He is scheduled to compete predominantly with the Outlaws, though it will not be full-time.

Series veteran Jason Sides set the pace early in the program, recording the quickest time in hot laps of 13.602. Sides went on to set quick-time in qualifying - putting him in position to "Double Down" as his nickname suggests - but the time only stood until Bell knocked him off with 15 drivers remaining. Ultimately, four out of the five top-qualifiers were series regulars. Three regulars finished the night in the Top-five.

RACE NOTES: Jason Johnson collects his first win of the season Friday night, beating fellow series regular Brad Sweet by a 3.553-second margin. Sweet and Brian Brown battled nearly the entire 30 laps, until quick-timer Cristopher Bell made a last-minute moved to knock Brown off the podium.

David Gravel gets a Gator; wins Arctic Cat All Star DIRTcar Nationals finale at Volusia Speedway Park

BARBERVILLE, FL (February 16, 2017) - For the first time in his young career, Watertown, Connecticut’s David Gravel is a main event winner in the Sunshine State, capturing the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions DIRTcar Nationals finale at the Volusia Speedway Park near Barberville, Florida. The victory, the third of his career during Arctic Cat All Star competition and his first since 2012, was conducted in near-demanding fashion; holding back Donny Schatz and Brad Sweet to lead all 30 circuits around the Volusia Speedway Park half-mile.

“This is definitely awesome,” David Gravel stated in victory lane. “I’ve never got to win in Florida and I’ve never got to win one of these gator trophies, so this is definitely cool. I have to thank all of the guys on the team; Barry, Zack, Derrick, Chad, Jen. They all did a great job preparing these race cars all winter. All of my sponsors; they make all of this possible. We are working for really good things this year, so this is a great start to that.”

Gravel, who started on the outside-front row, wasted no time getting to the front of the field, taking command during the initial drop of the green flag and stretching his early advantage to a near-three second lead. Even with two cautions, traffic coming into play by lap 10, and an abrasive coat of rubber starting to form on the surface of the speedway by lap 15, the pilot of the CJB Motorsports/GoMuddy.com/Big Game Treestands/No. 5 continued to hold his advantage, navigating forward while keeping Donny Schatz at a distance.

“[Donny Schatz] is definitely the best, so anytime you have an opportunity to beat him is a great thing,” Gravel stated. “The rubber started to come into play, so I had a little bit of an advantage at the end of the race. I was trying not to miss my marks while racing through traffic. I wanted to take my time and make sure I didn’t slip my tires. Our tires just made it, so thank goodness for that.”

With his second place performance, Donny Schatz, pilot of the familiar Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Arctic Cat/No. 15, will end his Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions Florida campaign with three victories and two runner-up finishes.

“We are happy with that,” Donny Schatz said regarding his Arctic Cat All Star performances in Florida. “The track kinda caught us off guard here tonight. I really didn’t expect it to take rubber like that, but it did, so it kinda set us up for a difficult second-half of the race. That’s the way it goes some days. This Arctic Cat team does a phenomenal job. I think we would rather have five victories during the last week, but who wouldn’t.”

The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions will enjoy a seven week hiatus before returning to competition on Saturday evening, April 8, at the Atomic Speedway near Chillicothe, Ohio. “America’s Series” hosted competition at the southern Ohio highbanks on two separate occasions in 2016; once during Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Cometic Gasket, and once again on October 22 during the Arctic Cat All Star championship weekend. NASCAR Cup star Kyle Larson earned the speedweek victory, with Wooster, Ohio’s Sheldon Haudenschild taking high honors on championship weekend.

About the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions:
All Star Enterprises, LLC, wholly owned by Tony Stewart, d/b/a the All Star Circuit of Champions, is a winged sprint car series. The All-Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Car Series is one of the oldest traveling 410 sprint car organizations and is a staple of grassroots, open-wheel racing. Formed in 1970 by Bud Miller, the series has largely been considered the first 'outlaw' Sprint Car organization of the modern era. After a 10 year stint as owner of the All Stars, Miller passed control of the series to Bert Emick in 1980; a reign that would continue through 2002. Guy Webb then purchased the series from Emick in the summer of 2002 and served as the series President for the next 12 years. Motorsports entrepreneur Tony Stewart agreed to terms with Guy Webb to become the sole owner of the original winged sprint car tour in January of 2015.
