Sam Hafertepe, Jr. Charges To Third $10,000 Hockett/McMillin Memorial Victory!

Bryan Hulbert – WHEATLAND, Mo. (September 19, 2020) Falling back to third for most of the SawBlade.com A-Feature Saturday night, a caution with eight laps to go saw Sam Hafertepe, Jr. mount the late-race charge to secure the $10,000 prize in the General Tire Hockett/McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.

“That was really exciting. If these fans didn’t enjoy that, I don’t know, because there just isn’t better racing than that,” stated Hafertepe.

“These guys, they drove their hearts out and I feel like all three of us should have won this deal. It was just a badass race. Everybody drove each other clean, we were throwing sliders, and that cushion was tough. It was treacherous and really, our car wasn’t that good. Them two had us covered, but I just didn’t give up and kept pushing, and pushing, and pushing. I’ve won this race two other times, and I was determined to make it three.”

Chasing Mark Smith and Derek Hagar on the Lap 32 restart, Hafertepe rolled by Smith for second on Lap 36.

Trailing Hagar by 1.301-seconds, Sam leaned hard on the nearly foot tall cushion that circled the three-eights mile oval. Closing it down to 0.874-seconds the following lap, Sam was within mere car lengths as the pair raced into the third and fourth turns.

Hooking the cushion through the fourth turn, Hagar’s No. 9jr suddenly shot right, launching into the fluff just long enough to give Hafertepe room to sail into the lead on Lap 38.

Racing to the white flag with Hagar in hot pursuit, Hafertepe kept it smooth through the final circuit for his sixth National Tour score of the season. Also counting as a win with the Racinboys.com ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. tied Jesse Hockett’s nine regional triumphs.

Hagar crossed second with Mark Smith, who dominated the opening 27 laps, ending his weekend third. Making up five positions in the Dissolvalloy No. 88, Oklahoma’s Shane Stewart crossed fourth with Justin Sanders completing the top five. Going red for Scott Bogucki, who was running fourth coming to the checkered flag, the finish reverted to the white flag lap after the No. 15h.

Racing around Hafertepe through the opening half of the A-Feature, Dylan Westbrook slipped to sixth with Jordon Mallett seventh. Ayrton Gennetten was eighth with Tim Crawley making up four spots to ninth while Roger Crockett completed the top ten.

Starting the night with SCE Gaskets Qualifiers, wins went to Shane Stewart, Seth Bergman, Jonathan Cornell, and Harli White. BMRS B-Features went to Sean McClelland, Garet Williamson, and Brandon Anderson. The Brodix LCQ went to Sean McClelland.

Provisionals were used by Blake Hahn (Points), Matt Covington (Points), and Miles Paulus (Regional).

The next event for the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network is the $10,041 to win COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tire on Friday, October 2 and Saturday, October 3. Tickets and event info can be found at www.i-30speedway.com.

Mark Smith Untouchable On Night 2 Of The Hockett/McMillin Memorial

Bryan Hulbert – WHEATLAND, Mo. (September 18, 2020) Leading start to finish Friday night, Pennsylvania's Mark Smith was untouchable with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network on Night 2 of the Hockett/McMillin Memorial.

Asked what it took to stay up front both nights, Smith replied, "This is a hard track to keep up with. When the reworked, I really didn't know what to do, so I just ended up doing the same setup I had last night, and it worked really well."

Battling the first few laps with Sam Hafertepe, Jr. for the lead, Smith cleared the Hill Racing No. 15h and began to pull away. Running first and second the first eight laps, Hafertepe grabbed the cushion through the first and second turns, allowing California's Justin Sanders to slip by. Well, into slower traffic by that point, Smith was still able to pick his way to a nearly three-second advantage.

Under red on Lap 14, when Chase Randall flipped off the fourth turn, the race resumed with slower cars giving Smith a three-car buffer over the field. Finding lapped traffic once more, slower cars did little to slow the Mach1 Chassis No. M1 as the checkered flag dropped greeting the winner 2.642-seconds ahead of Sanders and earned the Pennsylvania shoe the pole in Saturday's $10,000 to win A-Feature.

Justin's third career podium appearance with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network; the run was enough to lock the No. 16a into Saturday's big show. Sam Hafertepe, Jr. in third will position the No. 15h to the right of the front row. Advancing 10 positions for the second night in the row, Derek Hagar crossed fourth with Jordon Mallett completing the top five.

Moving up from 10th, Blake Hahn made it to sixth with Tim Crawley tearing through the field from 20th to grab seventh. Scott Bogucki was eighth with Dylan Westbrook and Ayrton Gennetten, making up the top ten.

Of the 77 drivers that checked in on Thursday, 74 were on hand Friday night. SCE Gaskets Heat Race wins went to Chase Randall, Ryan Timms, Mark Smith, Sam Hafertepe, Jr., Timothy Smith, Alex Hill, Sean McClelland, and Zach Davis. Hoosier Tire Qualifiers were won by Jordon Mallett, Kyle Bellm, Slater Helt, Jonathan Cornell, Tanner Holmes, Robbie Price, and Matt Covington. BMRS B-Feature wins went to Brandon Anderson, Dale Howard, and Harli White. Brandon Anderson topped the Brodix LCQ.

Provisional starts were utilized by Matt Covington (Points), Roger Crockett (Points), and Miles Paulus (Regional).

ASCS National Sprint Series



Sam Hafertepe, Jr. Hold Off Crockett For Casey's Fall Brawl Glory

Bryan Hulbert – GREENWOOD, Neb. (September 12, 2020) Landing his fifth victory of the season with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, and first of the year with the Nebraska 360 Sprint Cars, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. topped an intense battle with Roger Crockett for his second career victory in the Casey's General Store Midwest Fall Brawl and Bobby Parker Memorial at I-80 Speedway.

Taking off with the race lead through the first four laps, Hafertepe worked the cushion of the four-tenths mile oval while Roger Crockett rode the hub in the Tracker Native Tabaco No. 11. Advancing to the point on Lap 5, Crockett and Hafertepe traded the top spot several times before Roger started to pull away steadily. Pulling to nearly 3.500-seconds on the field before heavy slower traffic came into play, the race stayed green until Lap 21.

Restarting with a pair of slower cars between the top two drivers, the lapped traffic did little to stop Hafertepe as the Hills Racing Team No. 15h shot to the lead on Lap 26. Trading lines the following four laps, Crockett reclaimed the point on Lap 30. Only holding through the next revolution, the pair's run to the finish came after a Lap 33 restart.

Trading lines again through the final two trips around I-80 Speedway, the last lap saw Crockett with a run to the back straightaway. Carrying that run to the hub as Hafertepe railed the cushion, the final dash to the finish put the two in a dead heat with Hafertepe getting the win by 0.093-seconds.
With the event paying out Lap Money, along with other bonuses, Hafertepe's win was worth $5,280. Crockett picked up an extra $1,810 for an overall score of $4,810.

Moving through the field from seventh, the final restart allowed Austin McCarl to advance to the final podium step. Using the cushion, and at times the wall, Scott Bogucki rode third until Lap 34 before the No. 99 was able to slip by. The night's Hard Charger, Matt Covington, picked up nine positions and collected an extra $500 from KnoxVegas Campground and $250 from Speedway Motors.

Jack Dover was sixth with Dylan Westbrook seventh. Carson McCarl, Terry McCarl, and Blake Hahn completed the top ten.

With a field of 41 on hand for the Casey's General Store Midwest Fall Brawl and Bobby Parker Memorial, five SCE Gaskets Heat Race wins went to Jordon Mallett, Dylan Westbrook, Jack Dover, Roger Crockett, and Garet Williamson. Hoosier Tire Qualifiers went to Austin McCarl, Terry McCarl, and Sam Hafertepe, Jr. Cody Ledger and Seth Brahmer topped BMRS B-Features. Point Based Provisionals were used by Chase Randall, Travis Reber. The Nebraska 360's put Rick Cerveny in the show with a Promoter's Provisional used to put Colby Thornhill in the show.

The next event for the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network is the 10th annual Hockett/McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo. The event takes place September 17-19, 2020. Tickets are on sale at www.lucasoilspeedway.com

ASCS National Sprint Series



Brian Brown Triumphant With Lucas Oil ASCS At Sage Fruit Ultimate Challenge

Bryan Hulbert – OSKALOOSA, Iowa (August 9, 2020) Winning for the third time with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network at Oskaloosa’s Southern Iowa Speedway, Brian Brown captured Sunday’s $4,000 prize at the Sage Fruit Ultimate Challenged presented by STC.


Winner Brian Brown (Richard Bales Photo)

Earning the pole through the night’s Heat/Qualifier format, Brown’s first jump to the lead was short-lived as a four-car incident with Watt, Covington, McCarl, and Crockett saw the No. 95 and No. 5j flipping while Crockett’s car ended up on fire. Helped from the car by Jordon Mallett as crews arrived on the scene, everyone was able to walk away unharmed.

Taking off again, Brown opened a sizable advantage before the caution on Lap 7 for Austin McCarl, who retired with rear-end issues.

Back to green for the final time, Brown opened things up on the field. Seemingly untouchable through the first 20 revolutions, the closing laps saw the Casey’s General Stores/Impact Signs No. 21 start picking through lapped traffic. Allowing California’s Dominic Scelzi to inch closer and closer, Brown was dealing with the car getting tight as he paced around the backmarkers.

To the white flag with Dominic Scelzi making up nearly 1.5 seconds on the FVP No. 21, the pair were coming up on one final slower car. Using the proximity of the lapped car to his advantage, the Scelzi Enterprises No. 41 drove deep into the final two turns for the lead. Sliding across Brown’s nose off the fourth turn, the Missouri shoe was able to pull low off on the straightaway and retake the point by 0.305-seconds.

“I was having a little trouble there when I got close enough to Harli [White] that I wasn’t close enough to pass, but I was close enough to be in dirty air,” explained Brown.

“Sometimes when you’re in second, you can take a flyer and try different lines that maybe isn’t working of me and whatnot, but I saw him come across and my car had been good enough still to be able to cut down, and it did where I was able to get the drive off and get the win.”

Scelzi in second marks the second time since Thursday that the Scelzi Enterprises No. 41 has been on the podium with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network. His best finish with the series, Scelzi was chased the line by Pennsylvania’s Brock Zearfoss, who battled early with Shane Golobic. Grabbing fourth in the NOS Energy Drink No. 17wg, the top-five was made up by Colby Copeland

Trey Starks moving up six positions to sixth. Sam Hafertepe, Jr. crossed seventh with Tim Kaeding eighth. Scott Bogucki from 13th made it to ninth with Sawyer Phillips moving forward seven spots for tenth.

A field of 45 drivers was on hand for the Sage Fruit Ultimate Challenged presented by STC. Originally a $3,000 to win show, Country Builders boosted the payout to $4,000 to win. Hoosier Tire of Knoxville handed out tires to SCE Gaskets Heat Race Winners, which included Colton Heath, Garet Williamson, Austin McCarl, Harli White, and Dominic Scelzi. Qualifier wins went to Tim Kaeding, Brian Brown, and Shane Golobic. BMRS B-Features were topped by Sawyer Phillips and Matt Covington.

Ayrton Gennetten was the night's Hard Charger and picked up a KSE Power Steering Pump. Jack Dover, who took a hard ride in his Heat Race, received a complete set of Wilwood Brakes.

The next event on the ASCS calendar is the Lucas Oil ASCS Sprint Week powered by Smiley’s Racing Products. The standalone series begins Tuesday, August 11 at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan.

ASCS National Sprint Series



Kerry Madsen Dominates For First Career Knoxville 360 Nationals Triumph

Bryan Hulbert – KNOXVILLE, Iowa (August 8, 2020) Leading start to finish on Saturday night, Australia's Kerry Madsen pocked $15,000 and etched his name into history with his first career victory in the 30th annual My Place Hotels 360 Knoxville Nationals presented by Great Southern Bank.

Madsen's first win in 360cid competition at the famed half-mile, the triumph is his first with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, making him the 155th winner in series history.

"Cody just gave me a fantastic racecar. It was a pleasure to drive," stated Madsen.

"Pretty smooth, just a couple minor mistakes, but it seemed like everywhere we went, it would respond, so it was a lot of fun to drive. I just want to thank Tod Quiring and Big Game Motorsports so much. We've been knocking on the door so much this year and couldn't get it over the edge, so it's great to get it for these guys."

Battling with Joey Saldana on the initial start, a red for Matt Juhl brought the field back to a complete restart. Bolting to the lead on the restart, the field was under caution on Lap 3 as Lynton Jeffrey slowed.

Into the first and second turns with Shane Golobic running next to the No. 2 for a moment, Madsen was able to power away off the cushion. Finding slower traffic as the race progressed to Lap 10, the slower cars did little to slow Madsen, while the race for second through fifth saw positions changing hands. On the move from seventh, Brian Brown worked the show position until Lap 19. Getting by Golobic off the second turn, the No. 17 was stalked by Cory Eliason, who has wheeled the Rudeen Racing No. 26 from 15th to fourth.

Making up time on Madsen as the race moved into the closing laps, the runner-up spot looked like the position Brian Brown would have to settle for, but as Madsen steered to the checkered flag, a massive cloud of smoke billowed out of the FVP/Casey's General Stores No. 21, allowing Shane Golobic to race by for second. Cory Eliason's 12 position gain to third earned him the title of Hard Charger. Brock Zearfoss made it to fourth and won an extra $200 as the 2020 Knoxville 360 Nationals JetCo Rookie of the Year. Austin McCarl posted his best career finish in fifth.

Joey Saldana ended up sixth with Tim Shaffer in seventh. Tearing through the field from 20th, Aaron Reutzel made it to eighth. Dominic Scelzi crossed ninth with Carson McCarl completing the top-ten.

Lynton Jeffrey earned the best appearing car, earning an extra $360 from GDRD. The highest finishing Knoxville Regular was Austin McCarl. He netted $1,000 from the Knoxville 360 Booster Club.

A field of 96 drivers took part in the 30th annual My Place Hotels 360 Knoxville Nationals presented by Great Southern Bank from 23 States and three countries (USA, Can., Aust.). Dropping into the Alphabet on Saturday night, the E-Feature went to Lance Norick with Jamie Ball topping the D-Feature. Harli White topped the C-Feature with Matt Juhl winning the B-Feature.

Hafertepe Hustles The Highside For Lucas Oil ASCS Victory At U.S. 36 Raceway

Bryan Hulbert – OSBORN, Mo. (July 17, 2020) Working the Highline at U.S. 36 Raceway, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. held off numerous challenges and, at times, heavy lapped traffic Friday night U.S. 36 Raceway for his 51st career victory with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.


Winner Sam Hafertepe, Jr. (Terry Ford Photo)

Sam's fourth win with the Tour in 2020, the Hills Racing No. 15h, gave chase from the fourth starting spot as third starting Harli White took off with the race lead after going three-wide into the first turn. Moving to second on the opening lap, traffic came into the picture by Lap 5 with Sam taking over the lead on Lap 7, only to have a caution negate the pass.

Going slide for slide on the ensuing restart with six laps officially complete, Hafertepe grabbed the point the following lap. Driving back around the No. 15 to lead Lap 8, White was again challenged for the lead with Hafertepe able to fend off the Dustin Dream No. 17w, all while Blake Hahn nearly drove by both drivers with a high line run off the fourth turn as they started back into traffic.

On the battle with White, Sam stated, "I knew lapped traffic was going to be tough and that let Blake [Hahn] almost get by both of us when we were battling for the lead with Harli. That's how it usually goes here, but I have to say, the track was awesome. This is probably the best surface I've ever seen here. To have it on the wall in one and two, and on the top in three and four. If I'm a fan, I couldn't ask from more than that."

Keeping the No. 52 at bay, Hahn settled into second.

Holding pace with Hafertepe, the pair worked traffic as the caution shown working Lap 16. Reverting to the last fully completed lap on the restart, the green was short-lived as Shayle Bade flipped in the turn one while running ninth. She was okay.

Going after Hafertepe on the restart, Hahn settled back into Sam's tire tracks with the pair pulling away from the field. Taking one more shot on the bottom of turns three and four as the pair raced to the white flag, it was not enough as Hafertepe opened his advantage to 0.405-seconds on the closing lap.

"I was actually struggling on one and two when we got into traffic," commented Sam. "They were running the bottom and kicking up so much dust off the infield, I couldn't see where the cushion was, or how close I was to the wall, and I didn't want to jeopardize anything, so I cheated it down there a few times, but at the end on open track, I felt like we had plenty."

Blake Hahn held on for second with Ayrton Gennetten posting his first podium finish with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network in the Ozark Barge and Dock No. 3 after a torrid battle with Harli White, who ended up fourth. Moving up from 10th, Matt Covington completed the top five.

The night's Hard Charger from 17th, Roger Crockett ended up sixth with Danny Sams III in seventh after starting 13th. Brodix Rookie of the Year contender, Ryan Bickett, landed his first top ten of the season with an eighth-place finish while Alex Hill earned her second top ten of the year, going from 15h to ninth. Jay Russell completed the top ten.

A field of 30 drivers was on hand at U.S. 36 Raceway from 10 States and three Countries.

SCE Gaskets Heat Race wins went to Riley Goodno, Shayle Bade, Jay Russell, and Sam Hafertepe, Jr. Roger Crockett topped the BMRS B-Feature. Provisionals were used by Jordon Mallett and Travis Reber based on ASCS Owner Points.

The next event for the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network is the 30th Annual My Place Hotels 360 Knoxville Nationals presented by Great Southern Bank, happening August 6, 7, and 8 at Knoxville Raceway. Tickets are on sale at www.knoxvilleraceway.com.

Harli White Makes History With Lucas Oil ASCS At Riverside International Speedway

Bryan Hulbert – WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. (July 11, 2020) A historical night for Oklahoma’s Harli White, the driver of the Life of Hope Ministries/Champion Brands No. 17w parked in Victory Lane at the famed Riverside International Speedway to become the first woman to ever top the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.


Winner Harli White (Scott Frazier Photo)

Harli is the 152nd different winner with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network since 1993, and the fifth winner on the 2020 season. Co-Sanctioned with the ASCS Mid-South Region, the win counts as her second with the regional tour.

“This has been a long time coming. I feel like we finally got the Gorilla off our back. I can’t describe how good it feels to finally get this done. We had so many times where luck just didn’t go our way, something would happen to the car, or on the track, and tonight everything went right,” stated a jubilant Harli White in SawBlade.com Victory Lane.

“I can’t thank my parents and Johnny [Herrera] enough for believing in me and always pushing me and everyone on this car. Without them, none of this would be possible.”

Leading the opening two circuits, White nearly went around off the second turn on Lap 3. Able to recover, Harli has the task of running down Derek Hagar. Getting into slower traffic, Harli paced the bottom of the Arkansas quarter-mile.

Reeling in the No. 9jr, the two danced around a slower car off the second turn on Lap 7 with White able to secure the point. Weaving through the back markers, Hagar was able to take several shots at the lead but was unable to get back to the front.

Caution on Lap 16 for Scott Bogucki and Danny Sams III, clean racetrack allowed White to steadily pull away. Working the low and middle grooves as she raced back into slower traffic, it was not enough to allow Hagar a run, as Harli found the checkered flag with a 1.766-second advantage.

Battling with Howard Moore over the final five laps, Hagar held on for the runner-up spot with Moore in third. Roger Crockett made up two spots to fourth with Sam Hafertepe, Jr. moving up 12 positions to fifth after having to race through the first BMRS B-Feature.

Marshall Skinner crossed sixth with Brad Bowden advancing from 14th to seventh. Dale Howard grabbed eighth, followed by Blake Hahn who advanced 11 positions to finish ninth. Zach Pringle completed the top ten.

A field of 37 drivers was on hand at Riverside International Speedway. Five SCE Gaskets Heat Races went to Harli White, Marshall Skinner, Jeffrey West, Jr., Roger Crockett, and Travis Reber. BMRS B-Features were topped by Sam Hafertepe, Jr. and Scott Bogucki. Provisionals were utilized by Matt Covington, Garet Williamson, and Ernie Ainsworth.

The next outing for the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network is Friday, July 17 at U.S. 36 Raceway in Osborne, Mo.

Special Event Note

Before tonight's races at Riverside International Speedway, all ASCS National Tour Drivers in attendance were called to a meeting to vote on a matter concerning Dylan Westbrook. With his Uncle passing away, he has returned to Canada to be with family and cannot return to the United States for 14 days due to COVID-19 Travel Restrictions.

As we have done in the past, when extenuating circumstances keep a team from attending, they are awarded Show-Up Points for the night upon the affirmative vote of their peers. This is the fourth occurrence in the past 15-years.

All teams voted in the affirmative, and Westbrook/Hills Racing Team will receive 50 points tonight.

Driver Point Standings (Top 15): 1. Sam Hafertepe, Jr. 858; 2. Roger Crockett 814; 3. Harli White 770; 4. Jordon Mallett 763; 5. Blake Hahn 729; 6. Scott Bogucki 701; 7. Matt Covington 698; 8.
