Greg Hodnett takes Salute to the Troops victory at Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA (August 20, 2017) - Snapping an Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions winless streak that dates back to June 7, 2015, Spring Grove, Pennsylvania’s Greg Hodnett made his return to Arctic Cat All Star victory lane by conquering the Salute to the Troops program at Susquehanna Speedway in York Haven, Pennsylvania. Hodnett, who led all 30 circuits on Sunday, nearly swept the entire evening program by earning victories during his respective heat race and dash before claiming his $5,000 payday. Lucas Wolfe chased Hodnett to the final checkers, followed by Lance Dewease, Anthony Macri and Brock Zearfoss.

“I’m really excited to be in this position,” Greg Hodnett said in victory lane. “I can’t thank Mike Heffner enough for what he does for me and this team. Most picture the ‘Month of Money’ as leading up to Knoxville, but for us here in Pennsylvania, the ‘Month of Money’ basically starts now. We have a lot of big paying shows coming up. This is a great way to head into the next few weeks.”

Greg Hodnett and Anthony Macri led the starting grid to green on Sunday night at Susquehanna Speedway. Hodnett earned the initial advantage and controlled the first two circuits before yellow flags waved for the first time on lap three. Anthony Macri raced second as caution flags waved, followed by Lucas Wolfe and Brock Zearfoss.

Green flag conditions resumed with Hodnett returning to his post at the front of the field. Wolfe drove by Macri during the lap three restart to advance into second, still followed by Zearfoss and eventually Lance Dewease.

Hodnett led the field to traffic for the first time on lap eight which narrowed his near-two second advantage that was built just before the front-runners found the back of the pack. Wolfe used traffic to his benefit and started to pick away at Hodnett’s lead while battling lapped cars. Despite Wolfe’s ability drive through traffic, Hodnett’s ability was just as impressive; keeping two to three lapped cars between himself and Wolfe as he navigated the bottom edge of the speedway.

As the lap counter continued to count up, Hodnett’s lead continued to grow, expanding to just over two seconds by the midpoint of the 30-lap feature program, eventually reaching four seconds just before caution flags reappeared on lap 26.

The main event’s second and final caution set-up a five-lap dash to the finish with Greg Hodnett still in control, followed by Lucas Wolfe, Anthony Macri and Lance Dewease. When green flag conditions waved, Hodnett returned to the bottom and wasted to time returning to a lengthy command, ultimately stretching the gap to nearly two seconds by the time the final checkers flew. Lucas Wolfe chased Hodnett to the flagstand, followed by Lance Dewease, Anthony Macri and Brock Zearfoss.

“It wasn’t the best place to race to gain a lot of straightaway speed, but it got us where we are,” Greg Hodnett said. “Traffic got kind of tricky there in some spots. There were a lot of guys racing pretty hard in front of us; chopping each other and driving all over the track. I’m just thankful to be up here.”

With the four-race, Central Pennsylvania swing officially in the books, the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions will switch gears once again and prepare for an Atomic Speedway doubleheader on Friday and Saturday, August 25-26. The 3rd Annual Open Wheel Championship will headline action at the Chillicothe 1/4-mile, complete with two, full programs awarding a total winner’s share equaling $15,000 over the course of two days.

Open Wheel Championship preliminary competition will award $5,000 on Friday evening, August 25, followed by a $10,000-to-win finale on Saturday, August 26. Those seeking additional news and notes should visit Atomic Speedway live on the Web at www.atomicspeedway.net.

David Gravel Back on Track at Nodak

Gravel ends Schatz 5-race win streak at Nodak with 13th win of the seaosn

MINOT, ND - August 20, 2017 - After a pair of pedestrian finishes Friday and Saturday, David Gravel and the CJB Motorsports No.5 team switched cars and scored their 13th victory of the season Sunday night at Nodak Speedway. Gravel's win stopped Donny Schatz, who finished second, five-race win streak at the Minot oval. Brad Sweet challenged Gravel for the lead early, but ended up settling for third.

Gravel led all 35 laps, although it was not easy. The Nodak Speedway track crew watered the track prior to the Feature, leaving the surface faster and heavier than many teams anticipated.

The inside row got a good intial start, allowing third place starting Brad Sweet to be second by the backstretch. Schatz got in line in third as the track continued to widen out as the Feature progressed. Sweet pulled even with Gravel for the lead multiple times coming off of turn four, but could never pull ahead.

The first caution of the event came for Jason Sides, who was backwards in turn four, on lap 24. Sheldon Haudenschild made contact with the wall and spun on the ensuing restart. Sheldon was running sixth at the time.

Gravel extended his lead once again, made the right decisions in lapped traffic and picked up the victory without seeing another serious challenge. When asked about stopping Schatz five race win streak at Nodak, Gravel said with a smile, "He wins too much. I want some wins too."

"We brought this car down and I'm glad we got it done tonight because we were not very good the last two nights. This is three straight wins for this car," the Watertown, CT native said upon exiting his No.5 machine.

Like many, Schatz anticipated the track would slow down earlier in the race. "We got going at the end. I think I used way too much of my tires to get there, though. We did the best we could and sometimes you are going to have that," a content Schatz said.

Schatz scored at least a top-five finish in every start this season in his home state of North Dakota. He spoke highly about the North Dakota faithful, who packed the grandstands for the third consecutive night, "North Dakota has a huge presence with the World of Outlaws and I don't think anyone realizes how big it is. Thank you to the fans, without you guys we would not have nearly as much fun as we do."

Brad Sweet picked up his 44th top-five of the finish of the season, completing the podium. "We were right there a lot of the race. David never made any mistakes and then I made one and Donny got by me," Sweet said. "All in all it was a good night."

Shane Stewart and Daryn Pittman completed the top five. Saturday's Feature winner at Red River Valley, Jason Johnson, picked up the KSE Hard Charger award in sixth.

The World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series takes a few days off before returning to the Black Hills Speedway in Rapid City, SD Friday August 25th.

ASCS National Sprint Series



Sam Hafertepe, Jr. Dominates Lucas Oil ASCS At Missouri State Fair Speedway

SEDALIA, Mo. (August 20, 2017) Picking up his second win of the season at the Missouri State Fair Speedway, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. made it 11 Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network wins in 2017 with Sunday's triumph at the "Historic Half-Mile".

Taking his overall win total on the season to lucky No. 13, Hafertepe began his 25 lap quest from the cushion side of the front row with Aaron Reutzel taking the green from the pole.
Chasing the No. 87 on the start, Hafertepe ran anywhere from two to six car lengths away from Reutzel's back bumper as the pair rolled up on traffic with five laps complete. Both running the cushion in turns one and two, Hafertepe began searching for options at the opposite end of the Speedway. Sliding himself through the third and fourth turns, Sam was on par with Aaron's pace.

Working the eighth trip around the Missouri State Fair Speedway, the cushion in turn-two would end up being Aaron Reutzel's undoing as the Momentum Suspension No. 87 hopped the curb and spun to a stop off the exit of the second turn.

"Traffic was tough, and I knew Aaron was going to be running hard and that's what happened is he ran just a little too hard in traffic and got bottled up and gave us a clean track," commented Hafertepe who has one four Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour events in Missouri. "I wasn't really trying anything. Really, I was just waiting for him to mess up. That was my game plan the whole race because we just had a really good car."

Handing the Heidbreder Foundation Service/Keith Dobbs Motorsports No. 15h command of the A-Feature, as the field reverted to Lap 7, Sam was gone quickly from the battle for second between Giovanni Scelzi in the BDS Motorsports No. 1, and the RAMS No. 14k of Kyle Bellm. Taking over the runner-up spot from Giovanni, the driver from Nixa, Mo. would not be alone on the pass as Brian Brown maneuvered his seventh starting Casey's General Store/FVP No. 21 to third.

Trading the second position a number of times, the pair would not be able to run-down Sam Hafertepe, Jr. even as the No. 15h rolled through traffic. With his margin of victory right at a half straightaway, the silver would be awarded to Brian Brown with Kyle Bellm ending his night third.

Racing back and forth with Seth Bergman in the closing laps, Giovanni Scelzi crossed fourth with Bergman fifth.Brad Loyet rolled forward six positions to sixth with Miles Paulus seventh, after having run in the top-five for much of the first half of the race. Jonathan Cornell was eighth, followed by Wayne Johnson. Earning the CP-Carrillo Hard Charger of the race, Johnny Herrera moved up eight spots to round out the top-ten, and also pocketed $400 from Don Long's Searsboro Telephone Co.

A field of 23 drivers was on hand at the Missouri State Fair Speedway. Three Heat Races were also sponsored by Don Long's Searsboro Telephone Co with Giovanni Scelzi, Jonathan Cornell, and Seth Bergman each getting an extra $200 for their Heat Race wins. No B-Feature was contested.

The Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network is in action again on Thursday, August 24 at Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark. before heading to Smoky Mountain Speedway in Maryville, Tenn. on Saturday, August 26.

BOUC BLASTS TO HIS SECOND WIN OF THE SEASON AT NEW EGYPT SPEEDWAY

New Egypt, NJ (August 20, 2017) – At New Egypt Speedway’s Central Paint Night, Danny Bouc blasted to his second 358 Modified feature win of the season. Mike Lyons scored the victory in the Hammer Sportsman contest. Ryan Godown took the checkered flag in the Northeast Wingless Sprint Car main event. The Crate Modified feature was taken by Tommy Tanner.

As the 30-lap feature for the 358 Modifieds began, PJ Oliver hopped to the front of the pack with John McClelland in second. Seventh place starting Danny Bouc was rapidly on the move and motored into third with two laps completed. After a caution period on the second circuit, Oliver was still in front when racing resumed with Bouc taking second from McClelland. Quickly, Bouc engaged Oliver in a battle for the lead with Bouc coming out on top on lap four. After two additional yellow flags on laps ten and eleven, Bouc was still the leader with Billy Pauch, Jr., David VanHorn, McClelland and Oliver next in line. Bouc tried to distance himself from Pauch, Jr. and the field but two red flag incidents on the fourteenth and sixteenth circuits slowed his progress. Once action returned on lap seventeen, Bouc remained in front with Pauch, Jr., McClelland and VanHorn trying to maintain the pace. On lap twenty-one, Bouc was beginning to pull away from his rivals when Oliver and Ryan Krachun, who were engaged in a spirited battle for fifth, caused the last caution of the event. On the final restart of the event, Bouc repelled a challenge from Pauch, Jr. to remain in front with VanHorn driving into third. For the remainder of the race, Bouc stayed in control to collect his second win of the 2017 season. Pauch, Jr., the current point leader, came home in second place. VanHorn’s strong run netted him third. Fourth went to McClelland and Ryan Godown finished in fifth. PJ Oliver, Danny Bouc and Bryan Kuhl won the 358 Modified heat races.

Mike Lyons won for the second time this year after taking the checkered flag in the 20-lap Hammer Sportsman feature. Steve Desmelyk paced the opening two circuits before the sixth place starting Lyons took over. Following a caution and restart on lap thirteen, Bob Lineman, Jr. grabbed the lead from Lyons. With five laps remaining, Lyons regained the top spot after a vigorous duel with Lineman, Jr. Lyons held on to his advantage in the final tours for the win. The runner-up position was snared by JR Fulper. Cale Ross took third. Pat Wall was fourth and fifth was captured by Billy Osmun, III. The Hammer Sportsman qualifying races were captured by Mike Lyons and Bob Lineman, Jr.

For the eighth time in 2017, Ryan Godown was victorious in the Northeast Wingless Sprint Car main event. In the 20-lap affair, Larry Drake led the opening two tours before Rich Mellor gained the advantage. On the sixth circuit, Godown passed Mellor and led the remaining distance for the win. Lee Nardelli came home in second. Mellor, Bob Tersillo and Jermain Godshall completed the top five. Lee Nardelli and Ryan Godown took the Northeast Wingless Sprint Car heat races.

In the non-point 20-lap contest for the Crate Modifieds, Tommy Tanner took the lead from polesitter Kyle Kania with three circuits remaining and paced the field for the remainder of the race to collect his first career New Egypt Speedway checkered flag. Kania claimed the runner-up spot. John Criscione was third, Jason Dunn came home in fourth and fifth was taken by Ryan Simmons. Jeremy Martino and Jason Dunn grabbed wins in the heat races for the Crate Modifieds.

SCOTT ELLERMAN TOPS THE CHARTS IN CO-SANTIONED MASS/PASS RACESAVER SPRINT FEATURE AT WILLIAMS GROVE MECHANICSBURG, PA

By ERIKA PALMAI WAGNER

Scott Ellerman took home quite a bit of hardware Friday night after winning the co-sanctioned Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series/PA Sprint Series Racesaver/IMCA twenty lap feature event at Williams Grove Speedway, as well as the Beer Hill Cup Summer Series championship which was sponsored by the famous Beer Hill Gang. Austin Bishop, Bobby Butler, Jaremi Hanson and Zach Newlin completed the top five.

An astounding forty-five cars came together at the historic Central PA half mile oval, with heat race victories going to Stephanie Dodson, Bobby Butler, Dave Brown and Jaremi Hanson, and two consolation wins going to Colby Dice and Jon Haegele.

The third place starting PA Sprint Series regular took the lead from Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series young gun Bobby Butler on lap five after an exciting battle for the top spot ensued between Ellerman and the two pole sitters Dave Brown and Butler. After taking over command of the top spot, the fight for the lead continued throughout the entire duration of the race with Butler staying within a car length away from Ellerman for the remaining fifteen laps.

“I knew we were going to have to be good on the top in order to be fast tonight, so we worked on the car in the pits after the heat race, and we kind of just threw something at it, and I’ll tell you what, if my front nose didn’t break, I think we could have had that race,” Butler said post-race.

“I heard him behind me, but I just kept on hitting my marks, and holding on to make sure he wouldn’t get by,” Ellerman explained. “We’ve won here before last year, and then one earlier this year at Susquehanna, so it’s a great feeling to be able to win tonight, and on top of that, the Beer Hill Cup! I just want to thank Matt Miller and the Beerhill Gang for sponsoring PASS and for allowing us to have the opportunity to be able to earn a little extra on top of what we already do. It’s great to have the support they give us.”

In the final circuits, fifth place starter Austin Bishop, who was steady running in third, began to catch ground on the top two running cars, looking more and more like another possible contender for the win as the laps counted down. Bishop, who has been a “bridesmaid” more times than one in his rookie season has been persistently eyeing his first career Racesaver/IMCA Sprint Car win, with just recently finishing in second the week before.

“Those first few laps, we had a hard time getting heat in the tire with those cautions, so once we were finally able to run some green flag laps, I started to figure out the line on the top,” Bishop stated. “I saw Bobby and Ellerman fighting up ahead, so I kind of took advantage of that, ran them down, and I took second from Bobby on the bottom, and by the time I looked up, the race was over. I’m defiantly looking for a win here real soon, so we are going to take this finish and what we learned tonight, and bring it to Bridgeport next weekend!”

With a three-race weekend on tap for the PA Sprint Series, many MASS drivers and teams like Dave Brown, Eddie Wagner, Tom Carberry, David Bonner, Scott Frack and Austin Bishop will continue onto Selinsgrove Speedway tonight, and then ending the extended race weekend tomorrow night at Susquehanna Speedway. Next Saturday, the Engler Machine and Tool Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series will return back to New Jersey, at Bridgeport Speedway, for the Mach 1 sponsored event. Teams will have the opportunity to compete for the advertised purse, as well as a bare front axle and nerf bar kit provided to the series by Mach 1 chassis.
