Aaron Reutzel claims inaugural Buckeye Cup at Sharon Speedway for first-ever All Star victory

HARTFORD, Ohio (May 5, 2018) - Although close during recent competition, finishing second to Lance Dewease during the annual Keith Kauffman Classic at Port Royal (Pa.) Speedway, Clute, Texas' Aaron Reutzel was never an All Star Circuit of Champions winner. That statistic changed Saturday evening as Reutzel dominated main event competition at Sharon Speedway to claim the inaugural “Buckeye Cup,” ultimately leading all 30 circuits around the Hartford, 3/8-mile oval to earn the $5,000 payday, as well as a first-ever Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event victory.

In addition, the “Buckeye Cup” triumph propelled Reutzel to the top of the All Star Circuit of Champions driver standings, now holding a ten-point advantage over the “Wild Child” Jac Haudenschild.

Fourth-starting Carson Macedo chased Reutzel to the final checkers, followed by Jac Haudenschild, Parker Price-Miller, and Tony Stewart.

“I could see my crew guy in turn one telling me that I had a huge lead. I've never laughed racing, but to see that big guy motion to me that I was clear was pretty funny,” Aaron Reutzel said, driver of the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports/Folkens Brothers Trucking/No. 87 sprint car. “We've been close with the All Stars a few times, so to get a win now kinda puts some stress behind us. Now we have the rest of the year to enjoy and try to win more.”

Starting from the pole position by way of dash victory, Reutzel's campaign at the front of the field was only put to the test once. A caution on lap six, followed by red flag conditions as the result of a multi-car incident on the ensuing restart, forced the field to be bunched back together. Despite being tailed during the single-file restart by Lemoore, California's Carson Macedo, and three-time NASCAR Cup champion, Tony Stewart, Reutzel never faltered, wasting little time returning to a commanding lead that increased to nearly three seconds by lap ten.

Even during periods of heavy traffic, which came into play as early as lap 11, Reutzel maintained complete control, utilizing the ultra-thin cushion that lined the very outer rim of the speedway. Reutzel's lead increased to nearly six seconds by lap 25, eventually crossing under the final checkers by a margin of victory equalling 5.3 seconds.

Despite Reutzel's commanding performance at the front of the field, plenty of action was unfolding behind for former ASCS national champion that included an impressive hard charge by Jac Haudenschild to finish third after starting 16th. Kokomo, Indiana's Parker Price-Miller was also making moves during the 30-lapper, battling ahead ten positions to earn his second top-five performance of the 2018 season against the All Star Circuit of Champions.

“We are having a lot of fun right now. To be fast like this right out of the box is unbelievable,” Reutzel continued. “We put this team together on December 20th. When you surround yourself with great people like I do, anything is possible. Things are going great right now. I'm pretty blessed to be in this spot.”

The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will take a weekend off before returning to competition on Saturday and Sunday, May 19-20, with a pair of visits in the Badger State. Invading Plymouth Dirt Track-Sheybogan County Fairgrounds and Angell Park Speedway, respectively, the All Star Circuit of Champions will challenge the IRA Outlaw Sprint Series during their weekend tour of Wisconsin; the first and only Wisconsin visit for Tony Stewart's All Stars in 2018.

Those seeking additional news and notes regarding the upcoming starts in the Badger State should visit each facility live on the Web at http://www.plymouthdtr.com/ and http://www.angellparkspeedway.net/.

On a special note, in addition to the rescheduled Lernerville Speedway appearance set for Friday, June 1, the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will also visit Bedford Speedway in Bedford, Pa., on Sunday, June 3. The All Stars were scheduled to make their first and only appearance at the Bedford Fairgrounds half-mile on Sunday, April 15, but unseasonably cold temperatures and wet weather forced an early cancellation.

Tim Shaffer hard charges to a $5,000 payday at Wayne County Speedway

ORRVILLE, Ohio (April 21, 2018) - For the first time during his illustrious career, the “Steel City Outlaw” Tim Shaffer is an Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event winner at Wayne County Speedway. The Aliquippa, Pa., native, who bumped his career win total to 62 during All Star competition, earned his $5,000 payday in fantastic fashion, battling forward from the outside of row four to track down race-long leader, Chad Kemenah, with just nine circuits remaining. Shaffer's performance, his second All Star victory of the 2018 season, also earned him the MSD Performance Hard Charger Award for advancing the most positions.

All Star main event pole-sitter, Carson Macedo, who also worked around Kemenah during the later laps of the 30-lap program, finished second at “Orrville's Historic Oval,” followed by Chad Kemenah, Parker Price-Miller, and Spencer Bayston.

“That was a blast tonight. What a car we had,” Tim Shaffer said in Wayne County Speedway victory lane. “Cody Jacobs gave me a great car here tonight. We wanted this one bad. We always seemed to struggle when we came here, but tonight was different. We started eighth, but just kept on going.”

Shaffer's march to the front started immediately, advancing into a top-five position early and knocking on the door for a podium spot just before the main event's first and only caution appeared on lap 11. The single-file restart was just the ticket for the driver of the Demyan-Rudzik Racing/Rudzik Excavating/No. 49X sprint car, moving around Parker Price-Miller for third by the completion of lap 11, then overtaking Carson Macedo for second on lap 12.

In the meantime, Hunter Racing's Chad Kemenah, who led from the drop of the green flag, was beginning to gain a slight advantage over Shaffer. The six-time and defending All Star champion found himself in heavy traffic by lap 17 which gave Shaffer the opportunity he needed to close the gap. By lap 20, Shaffer was within striking distance, making his first official bid for the top spot on lap 22 with a textbook slider through turns three and four. The bid for the lead worked, solidifying Shaffer's position at the top of the running order.

Just two circuits later, Macedo was also able to work by Chad Kemenah, now setting his aim for the “Steel City Outlaw.” Although closing the gap to just over one second, Macedo's hourglass ran empty, crossing under the final checkers 1.28 seconds behind the Demyan-Rudzik Racing entry.

“On that restart, I tried to go to the top and that is when [Tim Shaffer] got by us,” Macedo said, driver of the Lucas Oil/Slade Shock Technology/Tarlton & Sons/No. 3G sprint car. “I thought I was maybe going to have something for him at the end, but hats off to those guys. They did a really good job here tonight.”

“I just had to be patient,” Shaffer explained. “I was really racing hard, but I wanted to give myself a chance to win. I just had to be careful with the lapped cars that were starting to stack up in front of me. We just had to nail down smart laps and be there at the end. It feels good to beat these guys here tonight.”

The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will have one weekend off before returning to competition on Friday and Saturday, May 4-5, with a pair of programs in Western Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio. Tony Stewart's All Stars will invade the historic Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa., on Friday, May 4, followed by a visit to the state-of-the-art Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio, on Saturday, May 5. Each program will award a $5,000 top prize.

Additional news and information regarding the upcoming visits to Lernerville Speedway and Sharon Speedway will be posted in the near future. For now, fans are encouraged to visit Lernerville Speedway and Sharon Speedway on the Web at www.lernerville.com and www.sharonspeedway.com.

The Wild Child wins an All Star thriller at Attica Raceway Park

ATTICA, Ohio (April 20, 2018) - The “Wild Child” Jac Haudenschild certainly lived up to his nickname on Friday night at Attica Raceway Park, and at 60 years of age, the Wooster, Ohio, native is still padding a racing resume that now includes 31 Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victories.

Despite starting from the pole position, Haudenschild's path to Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory lane during the Core & Main Spring Nationals presented by Fisher Performance did not come effortless, ultimately surviving multiple challenges during a mid-race battle with Lemoore, California's Carson Macedo, and a late-race surge by second generation racer, Lee Jacobs, to claim his first victory of the season.

“This feels really good. The car was great all night,” Haudenschild explained, pilot of the Haudenschild Racing/Southern Pacific Farms/Finzer Farms/No. 3. “That was a lot of fun. I had an opportunity to watch Carson (Macedo) race when he was younger out in California. He is a talented racer and he is going to win a lot of races.”

By the time the final checkers flew, Haudenschild gained the top spot, or lost the top spot, on five occasions, most of which occurring during a near-20 lap battle with Macedo. Interestingly enough, it was not the famous “haud line” around the outer edge of the speedway that gave Haudenschild the winning edge, it was the bottom.

Right from the drop of the green flag, Haudenschild was strong, eventually leading the first 16 circuits undisrupted. It was not long before Macedo came into the picture, utilizing his second row starting position to keep a close eye on Haudenschild. Macedo drove around Haudenschild on lap 17, but just two circuits later, Haudenschild propelled himself back to the lead, squeezing underneath Macedo at the exit of turn four on lap 19.

Despite Haudenschild's attempt to run away from his fellow front-runners in lapped traffic, Macedo stayed glued to the Hall of Famer's back bumper, soon joined by Holmesville, Ohio's Lee Jacobs. Macedo regained the lead from Haudenschild to officially control lap 23, but the lead swapping did not stop there. Haudenschild reeled Macedo back in, eventually executing a perfect slider between turns one and two to lead lap 32.

Unfortunately for Macedo, his battle with Haudenschild would come to an end on lap 35, coasting to a stop on the edge of the speedway due to a flat rear tire.

Forced to survive a last-ditch effort by Lee Jacobs, the “Wild Child” held strong, winning a drag race to the finish by .144 seconds over Jacobs, Craig Mintz, Max Stambaugh, and defending All Star champion, Chad Kemenah.

Haudenschild's triumph at the Attica highbanks was a first-ever accomplishment during Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 competition, now earning All Star victories at 19 different facilities.

The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will conclude their two-day sweep through the Buckeye State with a visit to Wayne County Speedway in Orrville, Ohio, on Saturday, April 21. Like Attica's Core & Main Spring Nationals, the All Star visit to “Orrville's Historic Oval,” the first of four visits in 2018, will award a $5,000 top prize.

Wayne County Speedway in Orrville, Ohio, will swing open pits gates at 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 21. Hot laps will hit the speedway at 6 p.m., followed by racing at 7 p.m., sharp. Those seeking additional news and notes should visit Wayne County Speedway live on the Web at www.waynecountyspeedway.com.

Lance Dewease outruns Aaron Reutzel during Keith Kauffman Classic for fifth consecutive Port Royal All Star victory

PORT ROYAL, Pa. (April 15, 2018) - For the second time in as many nights, and for the 37th time during his illustrious career, Fayetteville, Pennsylvania's Lance Dewease earned himself a trip to Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory lane, this time during the third annual Keith Kauffman Classic at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday, April 14. It was a second consecutive Keith Kauffman Classic title for the recent National Sprint Car Hall of Fame inductee, now even with Steve Kinser, Doug Wolfgang, and Danny Lasoski on the all-time All Star Circuit of Champions win list.

By no surprise, Dewease's victory, a fifth consecutive against the All Star Circuit of Champions at the Port Royal Speedway “Speed Palace,” was attained in impressive fashion, managing to outrun Greg Hodnett, Steve Buckwalter, Anthony Macri, and race leader, Aaron Reutzel, from the fifth starting position to secure the $5,000 payday. Dewease took command for the first time on lap 21, ultimately pulling ahead and crossing under the final checkers 2.149 seconds ahead of second place finisher, Aaron Reutzel.

Anthony Macri, who led the first 11 circuits before surrendering the top spot to Aaron Reutzel, stayed strong to finish third, followed by Steve Buckwalter and Greg Hodnett.

“It was far from autopilot for us tonight,” Lance Dewease said in Port Royal Speedway victory lane. “It feels great to get this one in honor of Keith Kauffman. He is a true racing legend in this area and an even better person. It's really special that he gets to be around and witness a race that is a tribute to him. I also want to thank the fans for coming out and supporting this race tonight. Hopefully this nice weather sticks around for the rest of the summer.”

Although impressive, Dewease's march to the front did not go unchallenged. In fact, up until the midpoint of the 30-lapper, it was Clute, Texas, native Aaron Reutzel who was in charge, taking the top spot away from Anthony Macri on lap 12 with a textbook slider through turns three and four. The pair drag raced to the start/finish line, but it was Reutzel credited with the lap by a margin of .2 seconds.

In the meantime, Dewease already battled his way to third, now setting his aim on Macri and Reutzel. With caution flags appearing on lap 16, the field was forced to stop for an open red giving teams an opportunity to refuel to assure they would make the remaining distance. The open red proved to be a turning point for Lance Dewease, giving the Don Kreitz, Jr.-owed, Schannauer Plumbing and Heating-backed, No. 69K entry an opportunity to undergo some set-up changes.

The changes made under the open red proved successful as Dewease was able to track down Reutzel by lap 21, soon driving underneath the Texan at the exit of turn four to officially take command. Dewease then drove away to win by over two seconds.

“If it wasn't for the red, Aaron [Reutzel] was going to win this race,” Dewease explained. “He had the best race car of that stage of the race. Actually, I thought I was going to run third because Anthony Macri was running very well. He's turning into a talented young driver who is going to win a lot of races.”

“I don't know if it was a heartbreak, or if I should be pumped up to be able to run with Lance Dewease like that,” Aaron Reutzel explained, driver of the Baughman Reutzel Motorsports/No. 87 entry who will contend for an All Star Rookie of the Year title in 2018. “Lance is a guy I really look up to. He's a very humble guy and races everyone really clean. By far one of the smoothest drivers I have ever seen in my life. Just to be able to accomplish this much, especially against a guy like Lance Dewease, I'm beyond proud. That open red gave his guys an opportunity to make him better. I was already really good, so we didn't have much to modify. Regardless, I am beyond proud right now. This just goes to show what this team is capable of accomplishing.”

The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will conclude their first sweep through the Keystone State with a visit to Bedford Speedway in Bedford, Pa., later today - Sunday, April 15. The first and only appearance by America's Series in 2018, the annual Roy Morral Classic will headline competition at the Bedford Fairgrounds half-mile on Sunday evening awarding a $5,000 top prize.

In six prior Bedford Speedway appearances, the All Stars have crowned six different winners including Bill Rose, Lance Dewease, Trey Starks, Chad Kemenah, Greg Hodnett, and most recently, “Blackjack” Brian Brown.

Bedford Speedway will open pit gates at 2 p.m. on Sunday, April 15. The All Star drivers meeting will be conducted at 5:30 p.m. with hot laps following at 6 p.m. Other information, such as general admission gate times and ticket prices, can be found at the official online home of Bedford Speedway: www.bedfordspeedway.com.

Lance Dewease wins Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial from row seven

All Stars continue Central PA swing Saturday at Port Royal Speedway

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (April 13, 2018) - Fayetteville, Pennsylvania's Lance Dewease made it look easy on Friday night during the annual Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial, charging forward from the inside of row seven to move the Pennsylvania Posse to a perfect 33-0 against the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 at Williams Grove Speedway.

Dewease, pilot of the Don Kreitz, Jr.-owed/Schannauer Plumbing and Heating/Jimi's Thing/No. 69K sprint car, earned $5,000 for his efforts at the world-famous, paperclip-shaped half-mile, taking the lead officially on lap 24 to snag a second consecutive Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial title against the traveling All Stars. Impressive enough, the victory raised Dewease's overall Series win count to 36, seven of which at Williams Grove Speedway.

Brock Zearfoss, who led the first 23 circuits before surrendering the top spot to the National Sprint Car Hall of Famer, finished second, followed by Danny Dietrich, Chad Trout, and six-time and defending All Star champion, Chad Kemenah.

“Don, Davey; these guys just keep plugging away,” Lance Dewease said in victory lane. “I'm just so fortunate to be a part of this deal. We are having a lot of fun. Even when we aren't winning, we are still having a lot of fun. That's what this is all about. My guys work a lot harder than what people realize. That's why we run the schedule that we run. We just kinda keep things within our budget and do what we do.”

Dewease started his march toward the front right from the drop of the green flag, solidifying a position inside the top-five with just ten laps in the books. By lap 12, Dewease moved by Chad Trout for fourth, eventually working around Alvada, Ohio's Chad Kemenah to secure the third spot at the midpoint of the 30-lap program.

By lap 18, Dewease was all over Danny Dietrich for second, racing to the back bumper of the familiar Gary Kauffman Racing entry while the duo battled through traffic. Soon enough, Dewease drove around Dietrich to secure the runner-up spot, officially setting his aim on race leader, Brock Zearfoss.

Although Zearfoss had the clear advantage, maintaining a quick pace around the very topside of the speedway, Dewease closed the gap in a hurry, moving within striking distance at the exit of turn four on lap 23. Despite losing a drag race to the start/finish line, Dewease made his winning move at the entrance of turn one on lap 24, squeezing underneath the “Jonestown Jet” as the pair battled through turn two. From that point forward, it was all Dewease at the front of the field, ultimately surviving two consecutive cautions on lap 28, the only cautions of the main event, as well as a green-white-checker finish.

“I didn't even know I was leading,” Dewease explained. “Starting as far back as we did, I was just trying to move around cars as quickly as I could. When we got by [Danny Dietrich] and [Brock Zearfoss], I knew I had to be getting close. Then, when I got to the five-to-go signal, I was like ‘oh shit I'm leading this thing.' At that point, I knew I had to slow down. I needed to conserve my equipment and make sure I made it to the end.”

“I didn't know [Lance Dewease] was coming,” Brock Zearfoss said. “I was getting a little higher and higher in turns three and four, so I was able to see most of the racetrack. I kept looking down to see if anyone was there. When [Dewease] got down there below me, I knew I didn't want to give it up without a fight. I raced him clean, but I wanted him to earn it, which he did. Hats off to those guys. They deserve this one. We'll try again tomorrow at Port Royal Speedway.”

“We were really good in our heat race, but we really couldn't show it,” Lance Dewease continued. “Hats off to this track crew. They did a lot of work tonight to help us get a second lane. That helped out this race track a lot. If not, it would have been locked-down around the bottom.”

The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue their Central Pennsylvania invasion with a visit to Port Royal Speedway on Saturday, April 14. The first of three All Star appearances at the Juniata County Fairgrounds half-mile in 2018, the annual Keith Kauffman Classic will headline action at the “Speed Palace” tomorrow evening, honoring 129-time Port Royal Speedway winner, Keith Kauffman. Like the 2017 Hinnershitz Memorial, Lance Dewease conquered the 2017 Keith Kauffman Classic, keeping a pair of former All Stars, Ryan Smith and Dale Blaney, at bay.

Port Royal Speedway will allow pit access beginning at 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 14. A mandatory All Star drivers meeting will be conducted at 5 p.m. with hot laps to follow at 5:40 p.m. For further details, please visit Port Royal Speedway online at www.portroyalspeedway.com.

Donny Schatz goes two-for-two with the All Stars at Volusia Speedway Park

BARBERVILLE, Fla. (February 8, 2018) - For the second time in as many days, Fargo, North Dakota’s Donny Schatz is an Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event winner, officially sweeping All Star Circuit of Champions competition at Volusia Speedway Park during the 47th Annual DIRTcar Nationals.

Schatz’s route to victory on Thursday evening was just as impressive as the night before, ultimately diminishing a near-straightaway lead held by Chad Kemenah at the midpoint of the 30-lap program. The rally earned the now 18-time All Star winner another $5,000 payday, crossing under the final checkers by a margin of victory equaling 2.439 seconds over Kemenah and Kasey Kahne Racing’s Brad Sweet.

“We had an awesome race car,” said Donny Schatz, pilot of the Tony Stewart-Curb/Agajanian Racing, Textron Off Road-backed, No. 15. “It’s good to have Rick [Warner] here with us tonight. It feels good to have the entire team together. We are definitely hitting on all eight cylinders right now.”

Schatz started from the pole position and led the first eight circuits before feeling any pressure from those racing behind him. Kemenah, who started fourth on the main event grid, worked his way to the back bumper of the defending World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series champion, eventually driving underneath Schatz as the pair battled through turns one and two on lap nine.

Even with lapped traffic starting to intensify, Kemenah powered to a commanding lead, jumping ahead by a near-straightaway advantage as the leaders raced passed the crossed flags. As the laps clicked down, Schatz started to come back to life, diminishing Kemenah’s advantage in traffic to less than a second by lap 22. By lap 25, Schatz was back in command, utilizing the topside of the speedway to cruise around Kemenah as the pair raced through turns one and two.

From that point forward, it was all Donny Schatz, rapidly gaining an advantage through traffic that stretched to nearly three seconds when the final checkers flew. Kemenah held on to finish second, followed by Brad Sweet, David Gravel, and Kyle Larson.

“I really didn’t know what to expect with the track. I was trying to play it cautious,” Schatz explained, who was weary about the reworked racing surface. “I didn’t want to go to the top until I knew it was going to hold me. I got to traffic and really couldn’t move around and that’s when [Chad Kemenah] got by us. By that time, I knew I had to bide my time and be patient with what the track was going to do. We ended up getting him back in traffic and that’s what it takes; being able to race through traffic like that. It definitely helped to be close to the front tonight.”

“Sometimes leading isn’t the place to be, I guess,” Chad Kemenah said, pilot of the Hunter Racing, Bonnell’s Rod Shop, No. 10H. “When you have to get beat by [Donny Schatz] it makes things a little bit better. The way I got around him was the same way I got beat. I just thought I had nothing to lose. I could see that he was hung up behind the lapped cars and I kinda held my breath and ended up getting around him. But when you get to traffic, you have to pick and choose the right lanes. Somebody that is that good behind you is probably going to pick the lane that you’re not in.”

“I had a good feeling before I left home,” Schatz continued. “My trainer said I was in ‘ass kickin’ mode’ so I want to thank him for that.”

The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will not return to competition until Friday, April 6, when the Series invades Atomic Speedway in Chillicothe, Ohio. “America’s Series” last visited the southern Ohio highbanks on August 26 with the “Buckeye Bullet” Dave Blaney picking up the $10,000 top prize. It was Blaney’s first-ever All Star victory at Atomic Speedway, ultimately raising his Series win total to 48 since first visiting victory lane in 1983.
