The ‘Big Cat’ earns All Star Florida finale victory at Volusia Speedway Park

BARBERVILLE, Fla. (2/7/2019) - The ‘Big Cat’ Brad Sweet was the man to beat on Thursday evening at Volusia Speedway Park, officially concluding the five-race Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 sweep through the Sunshine State with a $5,000 DIRTcar Nationals triumph.

The victory, Sweet’s fourth-ever during All Star Circuit of Champions competition and his first at the Barberville half-mile, was accomplished from the outside of row two, slowly picking his way through a stout contingent of frontrunners before earning the lead for the first time on lap 16.

“You’re never going to win the race if you drive the same line as everyone else,” an elated Brad Sweet said in victory lane, driver of the Kasey Kahne Racing/NAPA Auto Parts/Team ASE/Curb Records/Wicked Energy Gum/No. 49 sprint car. “I’m always searching and looking for ways to get faster. I’ve learned that over the years from Donny Schatz. I can’t thank everyone enough for this. We have a few people from Wicked Cushion and Wicked Energy here tonight, so it was cool to get a win for those guys. It’s nice to get a win but the real season begins tomorrow.”

Although shuffled back as far as fifth after the initial start, Brad Sweet wasted little time working his way back into winning contention, eventually maneuvering his focus from the topside of the speedway to the bottom to help boost his efforts.

With slower traffic entering the picture as early as lap eight, Sweet capitalized and advanced two positions in less than five laps; passing Tony Stewart for third on lap 11 and Christopher Bell for second on lap 14, each while hugged to the bottom of Volusia Speedway Park.

Continuing his efforts on the bottom of the speedway, it was not long before Sweet was on the tail tank of race-long leader, Daryn Pittman, actually pulling even with the Roth Motorsports, No. 83 entry by lap 15. The following circuit is when Sweet made his move, using his signature dive to drive underneath Pittman to take command by the exit of turn two.

Although Sweet was strong enough to pull away initially, heavy doses of slower traffic soon layered the speedway forcing Sweet to utilize the top and bottom grooves of the ultra-fast half-mile.

Logan Schuchart, who started alongside Sweet in row two, made things interesting in the closing circuits and actually closed-in within one second of Sweet while the pair frantically navigated traffic. The Hanover, Pa., native moved into second on lap 25. At that time, Sweet held a two second advantage.

“I knew the bottom would be there. The top was just really fast there at the beginning,” Brad Sweet continued. “I honestly thought I heard the officials call a yellow at the beginning and I actually checked up and got on the brakes. Then I realized we were still racing. Regardless, I thought we did a really good job getting the car to battle through lapped traffic. I ended up getting pretty tight there at the end and I thought somebody was probably breathing down my neck. I was just trying to drive as hard as I could the last few laps. I was really happy to see the checkers.”

Capitalizing on his late-race surge, Shark Racing’s Logan Schuchart held on to finish second during the non-stop, 30-lap program, followed by Daryn Pittman, Christopher Bell, and the ‘Steel City Outlaw’ Tim Shaffer.

Allowing Mother Nature to make the transition into more seasonable temperatures, the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will not return to competition until Thursday, April 11, when the Series makes the trip to southern Virginia for a one-night stand at Virginia Motor Speedway.

As the first point-accumulating event of the 2019 season, the trip to Virginia will award a $10,000 top prize, also kicking off a four-race sweep through the Mid-Atlantic that also includes trips to Williams Grove Speedway (4/12), Port Royal Speedway (4/13), and Bedford Speedway (4/14).

In total, Tony Stewart’s traveling All Stars will headline seven events during the month of April, scheduled to make starts in Ohio and Pennsylvania in addition to their Virginia appearance.

Shane Stewart earns first Gator during All Star DIRTcar Nationals opener

BARBERVILLE, Fla. (February 6, 2019) - It took Bixby, Oklahoma’s Shane Stewart eight laps to track down race leader, Daryn Pittman, from the inside of row three, but once he found the back bumper of the Roth Motorsports entry, it was the end of the road for Daryn Pittman, as well as the rest of the field.

Stewart, driver of the CJB Motorsports/GoMuddy.com/Big Game Treestands/High Performance Lubricants/Weikert’s Livestock/No. 5 sprint car, opened the 48th Annual DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park with an Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 triumph; a tenth-career victory for the Oklahoma-native against the traveling All Stars, collecting $5,000 in the process.
For Stewart, the signature Gator Trophy was extra special, as it was his first during a long and storied career.

“This is my first gator,” Shane Stewart expressed with excitement in victory lane. “After coming here for all of these years, I’ve never actually won a race here. This win means a lot to me and this team means a lot to me. I left the ‘2 car’ thinking ‘this is probably the end of my career’ because I’m getting a little older. Then the phone rings. It has been a real pleasure working with Barry [Jackson] and the crew.”

Although forced to start fifth on the feature grid, Stewart was on the hunt early, actually climbing his way into a podium spot by the completion of lap three. Less than a circuit later, Stewart was in a tight battle for second, eventually working his way around Nashville, Tennessee’s Paul McMahan before setting his aim for the Roth Motorsports entry driven by Daryn Pittman. Fortunately for Stewart, the main event’s first and only caution appeared just one lap later, thus erasing Pittman’s near-two second command over the field.

Green flag action soon returned giving Stewart a clear shot at racing his away around Pittman. Although Pittman escaped in clean air, Stewart was able to track down his fellow Oklahoma native to less than a car length by lap eight.

Utilizing the bottom groove of the speedway, Stewart set up his winning pass as the lead pair entered turn three on lap nine. His momentum on the bottom of the speedway proved beneficial as Stewart was able to power his way across the track, slide in front of Pittman and take command by the exit of turn four.

Although Pittman kept pace with Stewart until the midpoint of the 30-lapper, actually executing two attempts to regain the top spot as the lead duo raced through traffic, Stewart’s momentum on the topside soon took over and he eventually pulled away. In fact, Stewart’s command grew as the laps counted down, ultimately crossing under the final checkers by a margin of victory equalling 3.8 seconds.

Daryn Pittman held on to finish second, followed by David Gravel, a hard charging Donny Schatz from 22nd, and Logan Schuchart.

“This says a lot about all of the work then went on over the winter months,” Stewart continued, who made just his fourth start aboard the CJB Motorsports entry. “Barry is always thinking. Even today at lunch, we were sitting around watching sports and the next sentence out of Barry’s mouth was about the car and how he could have made me better during last night’s practice. That makes me feel really good as a driver. This whole deal revolves around confidence. I’m hoping this early boost of confidence produces more wins throughout the season. I’m really looking forward to the rest of the year.”

The Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will conclude their winter vacation in the Sunshine State with one final visit to Volusia Speedway Park on Thursday, February 7. Tony Stewart’s All Stars will headline DIRTcar Nationals competition once again, chasing yet another $5,000 payday.

Tony Stewart dominates final night of All Star action at Bubba Raceway Park

OCALA, Fla. (February 2, 2019) - Despite an early afternoon rain shower nearly terminating the third and final night of Winter Nationals competition featuring the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1, the show went on and so did Tony Stewart, eventually dominating the entire program for a fourth-ever All Star main event win, as well as a $5,000 top prize. It was Stewart’s first-ever All Star victory at Bubba Raceway Park.

Stewart, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Rush Truck Centers/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/No. 14 sprint car, started from the pole position and led all 30 circuits around Bubba Raceway Park, lapping nearly half of the 24 feature starters. On top of a dominating feature performance, Smoke kicked off the evening program with a heat race victory and a dash victory, ultimately setting up his main event starting position.

“This definitely feels great. We have our friends from Sage Fruit and Rush Truck Centers watching so to get a win for those guys is really special. I felt like I let one get away the other night. I’m still not sure what I did wrong, but we let that one get away,” Tony Stewart said in Bubba Raceway Park victory lane. “This thing has been fast all weekend. We really didn’t qualify that well tonight, but it put us on the pole of a heat race and that’s where you need to be for these races. I have a lot of great help and I wouldn’t be able to do this without them.”

Not even lapped traffic gave Stewart a stir, actually separating himself from second place running Lucas Wolfe by nearly eight seconds through the midpoint of the main event. Unfortunately for Stewart, the second and final caution, appearing on lap 25, ended his commanding lead, eventually setting up a six lap dash to the checkers. Despite a slight slip off of turn four, nothing was stopping the former three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion from attaining his first sprint car win of the season.

“We were actually a little too tight, believe it or not, which made things a little difficult for us,” Tony Stewart continued. “That’s the thing about Bubba Raceway Park; you won’t find another race track in the world that is shaped like this, which sets up a lot of unique passing opportunities. You kinda have to watch traffic for a few laps before you get to those guys so you know how to get around them.”

Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania’s Lucas Wolfe finished second to close out the weekend in Ocala, followed by Paul McMahan, Mark Smith, and the winner of the Thursday and Friday programs, Tim Shaffer.

All Star teams will now make their way east across Route 40 and visit Volusia Speedway Park for DIRTcar Nationals competition on Wednesday and Thursday, February 6 & 7. The pair of Volusia visits will award $5,000 top prizes, as well as conclude action in the Sunshine State for America’s Series.

Tim Shaffer two-for-two during Winter Nationals action at Bubba Raceway Park

OCALA, Fla. (February 1, 2019) - For the second time in as many nights, the ‘Steel City Outlaw’ Tim Shaffer is a main event winner with the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1, padding a recent stretch of Florida dominance that now includes back-to-back $5,000 top prizes. For Shaffer, the All Star victory was the product of patience and experience, forced to manhandle periods of slower traffic on a narrow, but ultra-fast racing surface, all while maintaining an advantage equal to just under four seconds for much of the 30-lap program.

World of Outlaws competitor and fellow Pennsylvania-native, Jacob Allen, finished just behind Tim Shaffer at the final checkers, followed by Visalia, California’s Cory Eliason, Mark Smith and former All Star champion, Chad Kemenah. The victory, Shaffer’s fifth All Star triumph at Bubba Raceway Park, increased his career win total with the Series to a staggering 66.

“This is really great. Everyone is doing a great job. It’s great to have my car owners here this weekend. It’s really special for them to be here and watch the car win,” Tim Shaffer explained, driver of the Demyan-Rudzik Racing/Smith Titanium/Southern Pacific Farms/No. 49X sprint car. “Everyone plays a big part and I certainly wouldn’t be here without them.”

Starting third on the main event grid, it was not until after the feature’s first and only caution on lap five, the product of a slowing Jim Shuster, that Shaffer commenced his pursuit toward the front. Restarting third on the grid when green flag action returned, it was the soon-to-be traffic that appeared on lap eight that allowed the Aliquippa, Pa., native to track down Cory Eliason and race-long leader, Jacob Allen.

A bold dive in turns three and four on lap 12 allowed Shaffer to squeeze underneath Eliason to take the runner-up position. Just two circuits later, Shaffer repeated his now patented move in turns three and four, eventually sneaking under Jacob Allen to snag the top spot.

From that point forward, Tim Shaffer was the main attraction. The four-time All Star Circuit of Champions champion was not distracted by periods of intense traffic, ultimately increasing his margin of victory to just shy of four seconds by the time the final checkers flew.

“I have a lot of years of experience. I’ve been in their shoes before and I hate to be there,” Tim Shaffer said of Cory Eliason and Jacob Allen. “When you’re leading and there are lap cars, it’s tough to get your timing correct. Tonight was one of those nights where you had to get your timing down. It’s so tough down here.”

The Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will conclude their three-day visit to Bubba Raceway Park on Saturday evening, February 2. Like the pair of evenings prior, the All Star Winter Nationals finale will award a $5,000 top prize.

Once Winter Nationals action at Bubba Raceway Park is complete, All Star teams will make their way east across Route 40 and visit Volusia Speedway Park for DIRTcar Nationals competition on Wednesday and Thursdays, February 6 & 7. The pair of Volusia visits will award $5,000 top prizes, as well as conclude action in the Sunshine State for America’s Series.

Tim Shaffer opens 2019 All Star season with exciting victory at Bubba Raceway Park

OCALA, Fla. (January 31, 2019) - Tim Shaffer’s effort on Thursday evening was relentless. Not only did the ‘Steel City Outlaw’ open the 2019 Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 season by scoring the Winter Nationals opener at Bubba Raceway Park, he was forced to battle, and hold back, three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Tony Stewart and Bixby, Oklahoma’s Shane Stewart in the process.

Shaffer, pilot of the Demyan-Rudzik Racing/Smith Titanium/Southern Pacific Farms/No. 49X sprint car, earned his $5,000 top prize from the inside of row two, taking control over the field for the first time on lap 28. Despite not earning the lead, officially, until the latter stages the 30-lap program, Shaffer was in the hunt the entire distance, actually taking command on lap 19 before it was negated due to the evening’s first and only caution.

The All Star Circuit of Champions victory bumped Shaffer’s all-time win total to 65 with the Series, now with four at Ocala, Florida’s Bubba Raceway Park.

“Racing in second was definitely the ideal place to be tonight,” Tim Shaffer explained. “My guys gave me a great race car. This whole team works so hard and it really pays off. The track was a little tricky tonight, some dry-slick spots and some spots with moisture. I just tried to find as much moisture as I could find. We are all standing here in victory lane and that’s all that matters today.”

Despite slipping back as far as fifth after the initial start, Shaffer recovered in a hurry and battled his way into second around Chad Kemenah and Sheldon Haudenschild by the completion of lap four. With slower cars coming into play by lap six, the transition from clean air to dirty air acted as an advantage for the Aliquippa-native, actually allowing Shaffer to reel in race leader, Tony Stewart, to less than a car length by lap nine.

The top two cars raced nearly nose to tail until the main event’s first and only caution appeared on lap 19. During that period before the yellow flags flew, Shaffer made countless attempts to work around Stewart in traffic, actually poking his nose ahead and racing his way alongside the familiar Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing entry.

Despite getting the opportunity to start on the tail tank of Stewart’s No. 14, the lap 19 restart paid no favors to the four-time All Star Circuit of Champions title holder, actually losing one position to the CJB Motorsports machine driven by Shane Stewart. Five circuits later, Stewart advanced in the running order yet again, this time driving around Tony Stewart to take command for the first time on lap 24. Although dominant during his short tenure on top, Tony Stewart was able to battle back and regain the lead on lap 25, slipping up in front of Shane Stewart as the pair exited turn four.

Meanwhile, Shaffer, who was directly behind the lead pair as they weaved through traffic, garnered enough momentum to advance back into the runner-spot on lap 26. Just two circuits later, Shaffer was again in contention for the top spot, eventually beating Tony Stewart in drag race back to the flagstand to put lap 28 in the books. From that point forward, it was all Tim Shaffer, pulling ahead to just over one second by the time the final checkers flew.

“There is nothing wrong with finishing third to guys like Shane Stewart and Tim Shaffer,” Tony Stewart said, who started second on the feature grid. “I think I may have sealed over my tires during that restart. I probably spun the tires more than I needed to. It doesn’t actually wear down the tire, I just wasn’t getting any bite. Making little mistakes like that shows you what kind of pressure you are under as a driver racing with this level of competition.”

“That was a fun race,” Shane Stewart said. “I thought I was going to have something for [Tony Stewart] and [Tim Shaffer]. Regardless, I couldn’t be more pleased. My team works really hard and I appreciate what they’ve done. Everyone knows this team has been very fast the last few seasons. Hopefully I can continue that streak.”

Drivers and teams should note that Bubba Raceway Park will open pit gates at 9 a.m. during the entire weekend program. A mandatory All Star Circuit of Champions drivers meeting will be conducted at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, but pushed ahead to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday. Hot laps are slated to begin at 6:45 p.m. each night.

Aaron Reutzel cruises to 4-Crown victory at Eldora Speedway

ROSSBURG, Ohio (September 22, 2018) - Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 championship contender Aaron Reutzel made his ninth All Star victory of the season look effortless on Saturday night at The Big E, charging ahead from row four to the top spot in just 12 circuits, eventually driving on to score a first-ever Eldora Speedway victory during the 37th running of the coveted 4-Crown Nationals.

After starting from the outside-pole position and leading the first 11 circuits, Kokomo, Indiana’s Parker Price-Miller held on to finish second at the World’s Greatest Dirt Track, followed by Indy Race Parts teammate Gio Scelzi, Travis Philo, and Cole Duncan.

In response to the tragic loss of sprint car great Greg Hodnett, the All Star 4-Crown Nationals A-main was altered from 25 laps to 27 laps.

“It is unbelievable to win at Eldora,” Aaron Reutzel explained, driver of the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87. “This win is all because of my crew chief, Grant Boyum. What a race car. We had the boss’ car out last night during the Outlaw show and we weren’t any good. We tried some things and they didn’t work, but tonight Grant did what he had to do and this car was incredible. It was going to be tough to beat Parker [Price-Miller], but luckily I had a car that could drive through the center and rotate well. This is exciting.”

A dominating performance to say the least, Reutzel’s charge to the front started right from the drop of the green flag, advancing four positions during the first three circuits of the 27-lapper. A red flag incident on lap eight involving Carson Macedo, who was battling within the top-five at the time, gave Reutzel an opportunity to capitalize. The ensuing restart resulted in Reutzel advancing two more positions, ultimately getting by Brock Zearfoss for third, then utilizing a slider in turns three and four to get by Cole Duncan to take second on lap nine.

Caution flags flew again on lap 11 once again setting up a single-file restart, this time putting Reutzel right on the back bumper of race-long leader, Parker Price Miller. When green flag action returned, Reuzel made his move, actually chasing Price-Miller back to the flagstand to complete lap 11 before getting underneath the Indy Race Parts No. 71P entry at the midpoint of turns one and two on lap 12. For the second time in four laps, a big move by Reutzel equaled success, keeping Price-Miller behind him as the duo raced back to the start/finish line to complete the circuit.

Despite caution flags reappearing on lap 15 creating another single-file restart, the field had nothing for Reutzel. The Clute, Texas, native drove on unchallenged, even manhandling a few spurts of lapped traffic during the final five circuits.

“We have one hell of a points battle going on right now and it has taken all the fun out of the racing,” Reutzel continued. “We needed this win bad. I didn’t want to go into the final round behind someone in the point chase. We want to win this championship so bad.”

With Eldora Speedway’s 4-Crown Nationals officially in the books, Aaron Reutzel will enter the final round of the 2018 All Star Circuit of Champions season in two weeks with a 64-point cushion in the All Star driver championship chase, also owning a 32-point lead in the owner title chase for car owner, Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports. The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will conclude the 2018 season with the #GYATKExtravaganza at Kokomo Speedway in Kokomo, Ind., on Saturday, October 6.
