Brock Zearfoss dominates Lebanon Valley Speedway for second All Star victory of 2019

WEST LEBANON, N.Y. (July 14, 2019) - For the second time in his career, and for the second time in the state of New York, the ‘Jonestown Jet’ Brock Zearfoss is an Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event winner, doing so by leading all 25 circuits on Sunday night at Lebanon Valley Speedway in West Lebanon, New York, and crossing under the final checkers by a margin of victory pushing three seconds.

Impressive enough, Zearfoss, driver of the Premier Motorsports/Moose’s LZ Bar & Grill/Heavy Equipment, Loaders & Parts Inc./BAPS Auto Paint & Supply/Meckley's Limestone Products/Berkebile Oil Company/River City Wood Products/No. 70 sprint car, nearly swept the entire program at ‘The Valley of Speed,’ first winning his respective heat race, then cruising to a dash victory, each before conquering the half-mile for a $7,000 payday.

Although a dominating performance in Upstate New York, Brock Zearfoss and Premier Motorsports did face a serious challenge; forced to perform an engine change just after heat race competition was completed. As a result, Kevin Zearfoss, Brock’s father, was forced to participate in the evening’s dash redraw while Brock helped his crew swap motors; Kevin pulled the number one.

“I really can’t say enough about this team right now. They work so hard and they never give up. I owe this win all to them,” Brock Zearfoss explained, who is currently fifth in the All Star Circuit of Champions point standings. “All of the pieces fell into place for us tonight and it feels great. There were a few times where I made some mistakes, like trying to get around some of the slower cars. It was tricky trying to figure out where I needed to be to get around them. Regardless, it was a great night and we are excited. I think I need to let my dad do the dash draw for us more often.”

Starting from the pole position, Zearfoss never faced a serious threat. The only real momentum change during the 25-lapper was a pair of stoppages due to red flag incidents, one on lap three and another on lap 16.

In addition, the ‘Jonestown Jet’ did encounter a period of traffic, the catalyst for the second red flag incident involving Aaron Reutzel and Justin Peck; both full-time All Stars who were battling for positions three and four at the time of the incident. Hung up in traffic, the pair made contact in turn four and Reutzel ended his evening upside-down. Peck was also forced to retire. Both drivers were unharmed.

“I really didn’t want to see the red flags open up,” Brock Zearfoss continued. “I knew we had a good car, so I really didn’t think we would change anything anyhow. I just didn’t want anyone to have the opportunity to make changes and gain an advantage. It all worked out in the end.”

Davie Franek ended up chasing Zearfoss to the final checkers, followed by Orange County winner, Danny Dietrich, 2018 Lebanon Valley winner, Gerard McIntyre, and Rudeen Racing’s Cory Eliason.

Tony Stewart’s All Star Circuit of Champions will take a weekend off before resuming their 2019 campaign on Thursday through Sunday, July 25th-28th. The Series will march through the upper-Midwest during their four-day trek visiting Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wisconsin, Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minnesota, Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, and 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa, respectively. The weekend will be headlined with the Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race; a $26,000-to-win blockbuster at 34 Raceway.

Danny Dietrich scores $10,000 during All Star visit to Orange County Fair Speedway

MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. (July 13, 2019) - New York has certainly been kind to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania’s Danny Dietrich, as the current Central PA sprint car point leader utilized a near-flawless performance on Saturday night at the ‘House of Power’ - Orange County Fair Speedway - to score a second Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory in 2019, his second with the All Stars in the Empire State. Adding some flare to his Middletown score, the Series triumph earned ‘Double-D’ a $10,000 top prize.

Impressive enough, Dietrich, who nearly swept the evening program at Orange County Fair Speedway by winning his respective heat race, the evening’s dash, and finally the 25-lap main event, now owns four All Star Circuit of Champions victories in the state of New York over the course of his career, adding Orange County Fair Speedway to a list that already includes Weedsport Speedway, Lebanon Valley Speedway, and Fonda Speedway.

Despite crossing under the final checkers by a margin of victory exceeding four seconds, Dietrich did not take command for good until lap 19, taking advantage of Gerard McIntyre’s misfortune after the All Star Rookie of the Year contender made contact with the outside retaining wall while leading. In fact, McIntyre led the majority of the 25-lapper, actually controlling 17 circuits, including the first, while attempting to keep Dietrich in his rearview mirror. Dietrich did slip by McIntyre to lead lap 12, but the New Oxford, Pennsylvania-native battled back instantly to regain control the following circuit.

“That was a lot of fun. Hats off to my team for their hard work so far this weekend. We have one more night to go, so hopefully we can cap this weekend with another win,” Danny Dietrich explained, driver of the Gary Kauffman Racing/Sandoe’s Fruit Market/Pace Performance/Sweeney Cars/Self Made Racing/No. 48 sprint car. “We were pretty good all night. We got close to Gerard [McIntyre] a few times before he made contact with the wall. I think we were just as good as him. Regardless, it was a great effort by everyone involved. I certainly wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t them.”

Although Dietrich was in pursuit of McIntrye from the drop of the green, the battle between the lead duo started to intensify on lap 11. McIntrye was in control ripping the top, but Dietrich was utilizing the shorter way around the speedway, closing-in on McIntyre inch by inch as the laps clicked off the counter. By lap 12, Dietrich was in position to make a bid for the top spot, eventually sliding through turns three and four to sneak by McIntyre as the pair raced back to the flagstand. McIntyre retaliated in a hurry, quickly returning to the topside to drive back around ‘Double-D’ to lead lap 13.

With heavy traffic coming into play by lap 15, things really started to heat up between McIntyre and Dietrich, actually translating into a near-nose to tail battle during the next three circuits. Lap 19 is when trouble struck for McIntyre, slipping up the track just enough in turn two to make contact with Orange County’s unforgiving retaining wall.

After inheriting the top spot, the main event quickly turned into the ‘Dietrich Show,’ ending the contest with a four second advantage and a $10,000 prize.

The All Star Circuit of Champions will conclude their three-day swing through New York on Sunday evening, July 14, with a visit to the ‘Valley of Speed’ - Lebanon Valley Speedway in West Lebanon, New York. Certainly synonymous with big action and high speed, the Sunday night blockbuster at Lebanon Valley Speedway will award a $7,000 top prize, as well as a minimum of $1,000 to each main event starter. With all positions considered, the main event’s total purse equals a staggering $39,450.

Lebanon Valley Speedway in West Lebanon, New York, will open pit gates at 3 p.m. on Sunday, July 14. A mandatory All Star drivers meeting will be conducted at 5:15 p.m. with hot laps to follow at 5:45 p.m. Those seeking additional information should visit Lebanon Valley Speedway online at www.lebanonvalley.com.

Aaron Reutzel gets by Tony Stewart to earn Utica-Rome Speedway win during third-ever All Star visit

VERNON, N.Y. (July 12, 2019) - Clute, Texas’ Aaron Reutzel has been on a tear, officially adding Utica-Rome Speedway in Vernon, New York, to his recent success streak that now includes four victories during his last six Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 starts. Impressive enough, Reutzel’s Utica-Rome triumph on Friday night was accomplished from the outside of row two, mastering an uncharacteristic, lightning-fast, Utica-Rome surface while maneuvering around the likes of Justin Peck, Paul McMahan, and three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion and recent NASCAR Hall of Fame inductee, Tony Stewart.

Utica-Rome’s racing surface was extra saturated due to overnight rain, as well as on and off periods of drizzle that extended through the early afternoon hours.

Reutzel’s All Star victory bumped his season total to six, now with a 22-point advantage over Dale Blaney in the All Star driver title chase.

“Our car was phenomenal tonight,” Aaron Reutzel said in Utica-Rome victory lane, driver of the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports/Folkens Brothers Trucking/Hollywood Coating and Blasting/Fischer Body Shop/No. 87 sprint car. “We had options tonight. We could drive through the middle of turns one and two which really gave us a boost down the backstretch, or we could rip the top. I was a little nervous coming here tonight because I’ve seen so many videos and noticed how slick the surface was. I’m glad Mother Nature stepped-in and gave us this surface tonight because this was one bad ass race track.”

During only the third Utica-Rome Speedway appearance in All Star Circuit of Champions history, the first since 2012, Aaron Reutzel made his efforts look easy. After being forced to maintain patience through a pair of cautions during the initial start, the defending All Star champion achieved the jump that he needed. With just one circuit recorded, Reutzel was second, next setting aim on the tailtank of Tony Stewart. Although Stewart was able to balance the very top-side of the speedway, maintaining a pace well-under the preexisting track record, it was an early dose of lapped traffic that proved to be Smoke’s downfall.

By lap six, it was apparent that slower cars were going to be an issue, it was just a matter of when. As Stewart and Reutzel were racing into turn one to begin lap seven, Stewart choked up, instantly losing momentum while trying to carefully navigate around a slower roadblock. It was during that period that Reutzel made his winning move, actually driving right by Stewart on the bottom of the speedway as the pair raced off of turn two.

Although action was halted yet again on lap 16, there was no match for Reutzel’s pace, instantly opening up his advantage as soon as green flag action returned. Reutzel would eventually cross under the final checkers with an advantage pushing two seconds, keeping Stewart, Justin Peck, Paul McMahan and Cory Eliason in tow.

“That was my fault for being a little too timid in lapped traffic,” Tony Stewart said regarding Reutzel’s move around him early on during the main event. “I really wasn’t sure where some of those lapped cars were going to go. Having a guy like Aaron Reutzel behind you, you really can’t hesitate or wait too long. A guy like that is going to pounce and that’s exactly what he did.”

“Hats off to this entire track prep team here tonight,” Stewart continued. “It took a little extra work to get this place into shape, but they got it done and it made for an exciting race.”

The All Star Circuit of Champions will resume their three-day sweep through the Empire State on Saturday evening, July 13, at the home of the hard clay - Orange County Fair Speedway in Middletown, New York. Perhaps the largest oval on the schedule - a sprawling 5/8-mile - the visit to Orange County will be highlighted with a main event purse exceeding $33,000; $10,000 to the main event winner, as well as a minimum of $600 to each feature starter.

Orange County Fair Speedway in Middletown, New York, will open pit gates at 2 p.m. on Saturday, July 13. A mandatory All Star drivers meeting will take shape at 4:30 p.m. with hot laps to follow at 5 p.m., sharp. Those wanting to learn more should visit Orange County live on the Web at www.orangecountyfairspeedway.net.

Dale Blaney scores emotional Lou Blaney Memorial victory at Sharon Speedway

Sharon Speedway

HARTFORD, Ohio (July 7, 2019) - Mother Nature tried to intervene like she's done so many times this season including washing out the prior two Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 events, but on Saturday night Sharon Speedway stole one back. A hard mid-afternoon rain storm only temporarily dampened the spirits of race goers for the 11th annual "Lou Blaney Memorial" presented by Ollie's Bargain Outlet as all of the other storms stayed just south of the speedway allowing Dale Blaney to celebrate in the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply victory lane. The event once again benefitted the Alzheimer's Association. Rain did force the live auction to be postponed to an online version with a date and time TBA.

One year ago it was Dave Blaney becoming the first repeat winner of the "Lou Blaney Memorial" winning on year number 10. On Saturday night, brother Dale Blaney put on a dominating performance leading all 30 laps to win his first "Lou Blaney Memorial" on year number 11 ironically driving car #11. For Dale Blaney, the All Star Circuit of Champions victory was worth $6,000 as he became the event's 10th different winner in 11 years. Blaney also became the fourth different "410" Sprint Car winner in as many events in 2019 at Sharon with his 16th career "410" victory at the Hartford, Ohio oval.

"Before I was done I knew I had to win this race," acknowledged the 55-year-old Hartford, Ohio winner. "To win it back-to-back with Dave is really special. It's weird, I've started on the front row of this race before. I always wore my dad's retro uniform for this race and never did very good so I just went with the old Penske (Shocks uniform) and sure enough it worked. The 11th year of this race, we're number 11 this year- we got it done."

Blaney followed up his victory in dash number two by powering into the lead from his outside pole starting spot on the opening lap over Sye Lynch, Brock Zearfoss, Skylar Gee, and Cory Eliason. Seventh starting Jordan Ryan, was rolling around the bottom as he cracked the top five on lap two driving for Jim Chappel, who won the 2010 event with Mike Lutz driving.

Blaney was flying around the fast 3/8-mile as he caught lapped traffic on lap six with a straightaway lead. While Blaney was working traffic, Zearfoss began to put the pressure on Lynch, a two-time winner at Sharon, on lap eight. Gee was hitting his marks perfectly running the extreme high line as he closed in making it a three-car race for the runner-up spot on lap 10. Zearfoss finally worked around Lynch for second on lap 11, but Gee probably surprised Lynch and Zearfoss as he blew around both to take second at the start-finish line. Ryan's fine run ended when he clobbered the fence and brought out the caution with 15 laps scored, which erased a huge 5.135 second lead for Blaney.

Back under green, Eliason drove around Lynch for fourth on lap 17. It looked like Gee may have something for Blaney, but he got too high racing off turn two and got into the fence allowing Zearfoss to get by. Eliason then threw a big slider on Gee in turns three and four to take third on lap 20. Gee's night then would end as he got into the fence again, this time cutting down a tire and bringing out the event's second caution with 21 laps scored.

When racing resumed, Blaney took off over Zearfoss while a great battle ensued for third between Eliason, Cole Duncan, Lynch, and Aaron Reutzel. Duncan made the pass of Eliason for third before the final stoppage of the event occurred with 25 laps scored when Justin Peck suffered a flat tire. The caution would allow Blaney clean air for the final five circuits as he went unchallenged in the Sam McGhee Motorsports/Mike McGhee & Associates #11 for his third All Star win of the season and all-time leading 137th of his career.

"I was really good down on this end (turns one and two) and I felt like I was losing ground on the top so I cut the corner and drove across to it and felt like I carried more speed," explained Blaney. "Brock (Zearfoss) is a really good racer. I kept looking on the board for the 87 (Reutzel) because I knew he'd be coming up there. Sam and Mike (McGhee) have given me a great car. Last year was a tough year and I didn't get to race much, but I've felt like we've gained a lot on it lately and really looking forward to the rest of the year."

Zearfoss was able to fend off Duncan in the closing laps for his best career Sharon finish in runner-up. "This traveling series deal for the points is tough and you have to stay out of trouble and finish races," stated the Jonestown, Pa. racer. "We've definitely had speed, but I haven't been getting it done on my end and finishing races- same as last night; we drove up to third and spun out. That's on me as a driver and have to get better at it. If we're going to points race, we need to be in contention at the end and we were tonight. Shane and Tye came back and gave me a hell of a car again. I thought I might have a chance on that last restart. I stayed with Dale, but he was just pretty damn good tonight. Congrats to those guys."

Duncan, who has had a tough 2019 season, has been impressive nonetheless at Sharon with a FAST win on May 11, a runner-up in last Saturday's non-sanctioned "410" event to Dave Blaney, and a solid third with the All Stars on Saturday night.

"We needed this," expressed the 27-year-old Grove City, Ohio racer. "It's been a horrible year- I can't say it any other way. We did get a win here. It's mostly been my fault. We had fresh race cars to start the year. I crashed a couple cars and we had some motor issues that we got resolved. It feels good. I can't thank all of my guys enough and my sponsors that stick behind me. It has to be frustrating for them to watch us struggle when they help us so much. Thank you to you guys if you're watching tonight we really appreciate it. And thank you to this great crowd for coming out- it ended up being a great night. Congrats to Dale, Sammy, and Mike- they deserve this."

Eliason was fourth. Aaron Reutzel salvaged his night with a fifth place effort from the 13th starting spot. Reutzel had set fast time in his qualifying flight, but failed to scale which relegated him to the ninth starting spot of his heat race. Reutzel charged from the tail to finish third then advanced eight spots in the feature as the defending All Star champion was able to maintain his points lead.

For Blaney, the $6,000 Lou Blaney Memorial victory capped a two-race weekend that was complete with accomplishment, as well as perseverance, as the pilot of the McGhee Motorsports entry was forced to battle his way through Lernerville Speedway’s B-main to transfer into Friday’s main event, all before charging ahead from 22nd to finish 11th during the 30-lap, All Star feature.

Tony Stewart’s All Star Circuit of Champions will continue the month of July with a three-race sweep through the Empire State, stretching their legs across much of southern New York before ending the long weekend in West Lebanon - just east of Albany. The weekend schedule will activate with a visit to Utica-Rome Speedway in Vernon on Friday, July 12, followed by a stop at the Orange County Fair Speedway in Middletown on Saturday, July 13. The three-day sweep will conclude with a Sunday night invasion of Lebanon Valley Speedway in West Lebanon on July 14.

SARVER, Pa. (July 6, 2019) - With a racy surface, hot temperatures and fireworks on the sky and on the track, the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 Sprint Cars put on quite a show on Friday night at The Action Track in a 30 lap main event that featured several charges forward from deep in the field. And when all was said and done, Aaron Reutzel collected his third win in his past four attempts in ASCoC Sprint Car action as he made his way to the lead on a lap eight restart and never looked back.

Gerard McIntyre and Paul McMahan lead the field to green flag. Reutzel moving up quickly through the field with authority. The yellow flag comes out for Clay Riney who does a complete spin. four laps in the books

Restart. Reutzel gets passed by Conley and the two battle side by side for the third spot. . . The two traded slide jobs while out front as McIntryre could not get away from McMahan in the early going.

Dan Kuriger then brought out the yellow flag with seven laps down. And on the ensuing restart Reutzel rocketed to the lead as if he’d been shot out of a cannon and quickly gained separation from McIntyre who fell back to fourth behind McMahan and Cale Conley. By lap 13, Conley had taken over the second spot from McMahan and set his sights on Reutzel who was encountering heavy lapped traffic.

McMahan made his way back around Conley as the battle for the runner up spot continued. Meanwhile, Greg Wilson was charging through the field coming from his 20th starting spot to fifth by the halfway point. But out front, all eyes were on Reutzel who stretched his lead out to nearly 2.5 seconds, making precise moves through the lapped cars.

Reutzel didn’t want to see the caution flag wave with two laps left as Cale Conley suffered a flat rear tire while running third which set the stage for MacMahan and Wilson, who made his way to third, to have one last chance at victory. On the restart, Ruetzel was money, pulling away for his second consecutive All Star Sprint Car victory at Lernerville Speedway.

Tony Stewart's All Stars will continue their holiday weekend with Sharon Speedway's Lou Blaney Memorial on Saturday evening, July 6.

Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio, will open pit gates at 3 p.m. on Saturday, July 6.

Aaron Reutzel rallies from ninth to win Bill Waite, Jr. Memorial Classic at Route 66

JOLIET, Ill. (June 29, 2019) - Powered by perseverance, as well as a healthy serving of determination, Clute, Texas’ Aaron Reutzel did what some would consider the impossible on Saturday night during his visit to the Dirt Oval at Route 66 in Joliet, Ill., ultimately concluding his evening with an impressive charge from the inside of row five, all after rebuilding a destroyed race car as the result of a flip during his respective Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1/IRA Outlaw Sprint Series dash.

With the help of an array of sprint car teams scattered throughout the pit area, Aaron Reutzel and the familiar Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports, No. 87 entry made the main event call, eventually leading over half of the 30-lap program to score the $5,000 payday. The victory not only bumped Retuzel’s 2019 All Star Circuit of Champions win total to four, leading all competitors this season, but the win also bumped Reutzel back on top of the All Star driver championship standings, now with a two point lead over 2019 Ohio Sprint Speedweek champion, Hartford, Ohio’s Dale Blaney.

Incidentally, Dale Blaney finished second on Saturday night at Route 66, followed by Paul McMahan, Cory Eliason, and multi-time IRA champion, Bill Balog.

“What an effort by this team. I really can’t say enough about these guys. We weren’t sure what to do, but we ended up fixing the car that we flipped. Actually, if it wasn’t for everyone else jumping in to help us, I’m not sure we would have been able to get back out there without having to go to a back-up car. Being able to start ninth rather than 24th made all the difference,” Aaron Reutzel said, driver of the Folkens Brothers Trucking/Nattress Construction/Hollywood Coating & Blasting/No. 87 sprint car. “A big thanks to the entire Rudeen Racing team, Brian and Stacy Kemenah, Paul McMahan, Mike McGhee and his guys, Thomas Meseraull; they all helped us get things back together. What a group of guys out here traveling with the All Stars this year. They all jump in and help each other.”

Kyle Larson, who started from the pole position on Saturday night before leading the first 13 circuits, was eventually disqualified during a red flag break on lap 14. A work area violation forced the disqualification, as one of Larson’s crew members left the designated work area to speak with Larson under caution.

Regardless of Larson’s speed and eventual disqualification, Reutzel was a sure-fire favorite, as the defending All Star champion climbed ahead from ninth to fifth in just four circuits. By lap seven, Reutzel was third, charging his way around Paul Nienhiser and Parker Price-Miller as the trio battled in traffic.

A caution on lap 13 allowed Reutzel the opportunity to drive by Paul McMahan for second. Although the opportunity prevailed, action was soon halted yet again, this time for a red flag incident on lap 14. Larson’s aforementioned disqualification occurred at that time.

Although two additional red flag incidents would halt action on lap 22, and again on lap 30 - setting up a green-white-checkered finish - it was all Reutzel, pulling away every time to a commanding advantage.

“I felt like I was catching Kyle [Larson]. I’m not sure what kind of a pace he was keeping because I know when I got the lead, I slowed my pace down,” Aaron Reutzel continued. “I think I was just as good as Kyle was during that first half. I know we are tired of getting beat by him, and he doesn’t like to lose races. I’m sure it would have been a great race with us two up front.”

With the month of June officially in the books, Tony Stewart’s All Star Circuit of Champions will now prepare for an action-packed month of July, kicking things off with an Independence Day weekend doubleheader on Friday and Saturday, July 5 & 6. The holiday weekend will commence on Friday evening, July 5, at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pennsylvania. Originally slated for early May, the Lernerville visit was eventually canceled with only engine heat being completed. An early evening storm, which doused the entire facility, forced the eventual cancellation.

Action will move to Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio, on Saturday, July 6. Honoring 2013 National Sprint Car Hall of Fame inductee, Lou Blaney, the coveted Lou Blaney Memorial will be on tap at the northeast Ohio venue, awarding a top prize equalling $6,000.
