Trey Starks earns Roy Morral Tribute for first ever Arctic Cat All Star victory

BEDFORD, PA (April 30, 2017) - For the first time in his young career, Trey Starks is an Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions main event winner, outrunning Dale Blaney and Lucas Wolfe for the Roy Morral Tribute title at the Bedford Fairgrounds Speedway in Bedford, Pennsylvania. Starks, pilot of the Scott Gobrecht-owned/Textron Off Road/No. 44, took command officially on lap three and never looked back, crossing under the final checkers 2.2 seconds ahead of the competition. The $5,000 victory was Starks’ first in Central Pennsylvania.

“I don’t even know what to say right now. This is amazing,” Trey Starks said in victory lane. “This is such a humbling sport. We finished 18th last night at Lincoln Speedway, and now we are in victory lane with the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions. This is a dream come true.”

Pole sitter Lucas Wolfe and New Castle, Indiana’s Caleb Armstrong led the 26 starters to green on Sunday night at Bedford Speedway. Wolfe grabbed the early advantage and led the first two circuits before the main event’s first caution appeared on lap three. It was on the restart when Trey Starks made his bid for the top spot, driving under Lucas Wolfe to officially take command for the first time.

A pair of cautions on lap six, one of which resulting in red flag conditions, halted the field once again, but neither created any distraction for Starks. The Puyallup, Washington, native brought the field back to life and returned to a demanding lead, eventually reaching the tail of the field just before the midpoint of the 25-lap program.

While Starks ran away in traffic, a battle for the second position soon commenced between Lucas Wolfe and Dale Blaney. Blaney, who started sixth on the main event grid, chased Wolfe nearly nose-to-tail in traffic for five circuits, eventually taking away the runner-up spot on lap 20. Despite Blaney’s attempt to chase down the top spot, Starks’ lead had increased to nearly four seconds, only cutting the advantage to just over two seconds by the time the final checkers flew. Lucas Wolfe held on to finish third aboard the Mike Barshinger-owned/No. 24, followed by Tim Shaffer and Johnstown’s Dan Shetler.

“When you’re out in front like that, especially ahead of a guy like Dale Blaney, every move in traffic is probably the wrong move,” Trey Starks explained. “I was just trying to get through traffic as quickly as I could. We’ve been having such a tough start to the year. I’m so glad to get one for my team.”

With three rounds of Central Pennsylvania competition complete, the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions will move forward and continue their 2017 campaign with a return to The Keystone State, this time spending a weekend on the western edge of Pennsylvania with visits to Lernerville Speedway and Mercer Raceway Park on Friday and Saturday, May 5-6, respectively. “America’s Series” will visit Lernerville Speedway and Mercer Raceway Park only once in 2017, each awarding $5,000 top prizes.

Lance Dewease goes wire-to-wire for Keith Kauffman Classic victory at Port Royal Speedway

PORT ROYAL, PA (April 29, 2017) - For the second time in as many nights, Fayetteville, Pennsylvania’s Lance Dewease is an Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions main event winner in Central Pennsylvania, this time dominating feature action from the front row to score the second annual Keith Kauffman Classic at Port Royal Speedway. The victory, the 33rd Arctic Cat All Star win of Dewease’s career and his sixth at the Port Royal “Speed Palace,” was conducted in near-record fashion, crossing under the final checkers 6.748 seconds ahead of the field, lapping up to eleventh place during the ten minute, non-stop 30-lapper.

“These guys work so hard,” said Lance Dewease about the Don Kreitz-owned/Schannauer Plumbing & Heating/RVWorkshop.com/No. 69K operation. “That’s why we run such a limited schedule. That allows my guys enough time to look over everything and make sure we’re ready to go for the next race. The track was great tonight. Hats off to everyone here at Port Royal Speedway. It’s a dream to drive for this team.”

Lance Dewease started from the pole position and wasted no time gaining the early advantage, crossing under the flagstand for the first time by a margin of 2.2 seconds ahead of Ryan Smith and Blane Heimbach. Even with traffic coming into play by lap six, Dewease still managed to keep positive momentum, extending his lead to nearly four seconds at halfway. Meanwhile, Hartford, Ohio’s Dale Blaney charged forward from the outside of row three to third by lap ten, falling in line behind Ryan Smith and Lance Dewease.

Despite two hiccups, making contact with the inside retaining wall, as well as making contact with Doug Esh during an attempt to put “The Hammer” a lap down, Dewease drove on to score the $5,000 payday with no challenges, followed at the finish by Ryan Smith, Dale Blaney, Dylan Cisney, and Blane Heimbach. The victory was number 101 for Lance Dewease at Port Royal Speedway.

“Finishing second to these guys is like a win for us,” Ryan Smith said. “I can’t thank my team enough for what they do for me. Hopefully we can get a win soon and get the monkey off of our back.”

The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions will conclude their first Central Pennsylvania swing of 2017 with a visit to the Bedford Fairgrounds Speedway in Bedford on Sunday evening, April 30. Honoring the former Bedford Speedway promoter and Central Pennsylvania car owner, the Roy Morral Tribute will headline competition at the Bedford half-mile; the first of two Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions appearances in Bedford, Pennsylvania, in 2017.

Five-time and defending Arctic Cat All Star champion Chad Kemenah is the most recent winner at Bedford Speedway during Series competition, holding back Greg Hodnett and Cap Henry at the final checkers for a $5,000 payday.

Bedford Speedway officials will open pit gates at 4:00pm on Sunday, April 30. A mandatory drivers meeting will be conducted at 5:30pm, followed by hot laps at 6:00pm. Fans who can not attend the Roy Morral Tribute are invited to watch online via www.speedshifttv.com.

Despite periods of pressure from Rahmer, as well as a near-disastrous run-in with traffic, Dewease, pilot of the Don Kreitz-owned/Schannauer Plumbing & Heating/RVWorkshop.com/No. 69K, held on to claim the 30-lap program; his sixth Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions victory at Williams Grove Speedway and the 32nd Series win of his storied career. Freddie Rahmer crossed under the final checkers second in the running order, followed by Tim Shaffer, Aaron Ott and Danny Dietrich.

“We are really happy with this,” Lance Dewease explained in victory lane. “Davey [Brown] and Don [Kreitz] work really hard every week. They worked all winter to try and get us to qualify a little bit better. This car is a little different than what we had last year, so it has a little bit of a different feel. This is only our third race of the year. We’re not where we need to be yet, but we are getting close.”

Lance Dewease started fourth on the main event grid, driving to second by the completion of lap one, eventually making his first bid for the top spot on lap five. The Fayetteville, Pennsylvania, native took command officially on lap six, driving by the “Steel City Outlaw” Tim Shaffer with a move on the bottom of the speedway.

Despite Dewease’s initial ability to drive away from the rest of the field, Freddie Rahmer, who followed Lance Dewease around Tim Shaffer to take the runner-up position on lap 10, never lost sight of the familiar No. 69K. The pair were only separated by .6 seconds when the first and only caution appeared on lap 17.

Green flag conditions soon resumed with Dewease extending a slight advantage once again, stretching to a near-two second lead even after catching the back of the running order. Using traffic to his advantage, Freddie Rahmer was able to shrink Dewease’s command to less than a second, ultimately driving to the back bumper of the No. 69K by lap 28.

With traffic an obvious obstacle for Dewease when entering turn one on the final circuit, Rahmer attempted to drive around the Central Pennsylvania veteran, as well as the lapped car of Anthony Macri. All three nearly made contact, with Dewease barely sneaking beyond Macri on the bottom of the speedway. Dewease’s bold move sealed the deal, driving on to score his first Arctic Cat All Star victory of the 2017 season by .814 seconds.

“Freddie [Rahmer] hauled it in there pretty hard like he’s supposed to,” Dewease explained. “He’s not here to run second. Macri slipped up just a little and I was able to jam it in there. Fortunately, I was able to get by. That allowed us to hold off Freddie for the last lap. He’s been good all night. He’s turning into a pretty good racer.”

“This is their race track, for sure,” Freddie Rahmer said about Lance Dewease and his team. “I was just trying to go where Lance wasn’t. I think if he wouldn’t have snuck by Macri, we may have had enough to beat him. We were right there with him, so I’m pretty happy about that.”

Tony Stewart’s Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions will continue their first Central Pennsylvania swing of 2017 with a trip to the Port Royal Speedway “Speed Palace” on Saturday evening, April 29. Honoring the facility’s all-time winningest competitor, the Keith Kauffman Classic will feature a complete Arctic Cat All Star program, going 30 laps in distance and awarding a $5,000 top prize. Dale Blaney is the defending Keith Kauffman Classic winner, holding off eventual Arctic Cat All Star champion Chad Kemenah and Greg Hodnett for the four-figure payday.

The season’s first Arctic Cat All Star swing through Central Pennsylvania will come to a close on Sunday evening, April 30, with the Roy Morral Tribute at Bedford Speedway in Bedford.

For those who can not attend Port Royal Speedway, fans are invited to tune-in at www.speedshifttv.com. A live pay-per-view broadcast featuring the entire Keith Kauffman Classic program will be available for purchase.

Port Royal Speedway will open pit gates at 2:00pm on Saturday, April 29. A mandatory drivers meeting will be conducted at 5:30pm, followed by hot laps at 6:10. Those seeking additional news and notes should visit Port Royal Speedway live on the Web at www.portroyalspeedway.com.

Sheldon Haudenschild dominates for Arctic Cat All Star win at Wayne County Speedway

ORRVILLE, OH (April 22, 2017) - With his World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series weekend commitments in Arkansas and Missouri washed away by Mother Nature, Wooster, Ohio’s Sheldon Haudenschild decided to make the long trek home. The decision proved to be worth $5,000.

Sheldon Haudenschild dominated Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions competition on Saturday evening at Wayne County Speedway, charging forward from sixth on the main event grid to win the non-stop, 30-lap A-main by a margin equaling six seconds. The current World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series Rookie of the Year point leader took command for the first time on lap 12, driving under his father, Jac Haudenschild, between the first and second corner. It was the 16th Arctic Cat All Star victory of Haudenschild’s career and his fifth at Wayne County Speedway.

“This car was a dream all night long,” Sheldon Haudenschild explained in victory lane. “My guys did one heck of a job which made my job a lot easier, too. The track tonight was great as always. It’s pretty cool to come back here and have an opportunity to race close to home.”

The “Wild Child” Jac Haudenschild, aboard the Jamie Miller-owned No. 6M, led the Arctic Cat All Star field to green on Saturday night at Wayne County Speedway, quickly overtaken by Caleb Armstrong as the front-runners approached the flagstand for the first time. The New Castle, Indiana, native maintained on top until lap three when Jac Haudenschild reclaimed the point position. Haudenschild and Armstrong, soon flanked by Chad Kemenah, raced at the front of the field in that order until lap nine when Sheldon Haudenschild made his first appearance inside the top-three.

Haudenschild, aboard the Haudenschild Racing/Southern Pacific Farms/Finzer Farms/No. 93, drove by Chad Kemenah to claim third on lap nine, eventually taking the second position from Caleb Armstrong on lap ten. By that time, traffic had already started to intensify, allowing young Haudenschild to catch his father by utilizing slower cars, as well as the very topside of the speedway. The father/son duo battled through lap 11, only to swap positions on lap 12, with the winning move occurring near the exit of turn two. Sheldon Haudenschild was unchallenged the remaining distance, instantly increasing his advantage to a near-full straightaway by lap 15. When the final checkers flew, Haudenschild had a six second advantage, chased to the finish by Chad Kemenah, Jac Haudenschild, Caleb Armstrong, and Travis Philo.

“The cushion in one and two was really good, but my car was so good that I didn’t have to go up there and touch it much,” Haudenschild explained. “I got around my dad early, but you can never be too sure about him. He never gives up, so you almost have to expect that he’ll be coming back at some point. I wish him and I could have finished 1-2, but it is what it is. We are happy to get the win.”

With his runner-up finish, Chad Kemenah remains in control of the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions title chase. The five-time and defending Arctic Cat All Star champion now has seven top-ten feature finishes in eight Arctic Cat All Star starts.

“We have a really good race team right now. The car was really good all night long. Hats off to Sheldon [Haudenschild] and his guys. They were really good,” Kemenah explained. “Consistency is really important. We’re just going to keep doing what we’ve been doing and the wins and championships will show up.”

With their three-race swing through The Buckeye State complete, the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions will switch gears and turn east, this time crossing The Keystone State for a trio of programs in Central Pennsylvania. Dubbed the Pennsylvania Posse, Central Pennsylvania’s finest will challenge the near-20 Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions teams on three consecutive occasions stretching from Friday, April 28, to Sunday, April 30.

The Arctic Cat All Stars will visit Williams Grove Speedway, Port Royal Speedway and Bedford Fairgrounds Speedway, respectively, during the upcoming weekend, each awarding a $5,000 top prize, as well as full points toward the 2017 Arctic Cat All Star championship. “America’s Series” nearly swept competition in Central Pennsylvania during its spring swing of 2016, earning victories at Bedford Fairgrounds Speedway and Port Royal Speedway on April 17 and April 23.

Spencer Bayston holds back Cole Duncan and Tim Shaffer to claim first-ever Arctic Cat All Star victory during HD Supply Spring Nationals

ATTICA, OH (April 15, 2017) - For Lebenon, Indiana’s Spencer Bayston, it took just 15 winged sprint car starts to park himself in victory lane, earning the HD Supply Spring Nationals finale victory worth $5,000 over a stout Arctic Cat All Star field at Attica Raceway Park.

Bayston, pilot of the Kevin Swindell-owned/Swindell Speed Lab/No. 39, outperformed 46 other Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions entries that were signed-in on Saturday night at the home of “Ohio’s Finest Racing,” eventually charging forward from seventh on the main event grid to secure his position on top of the feature podium. Cole Duncan finished second during the 40-lap program, followed by Tim Shaffer, Dale Blaney, and defending Arctic Cat All Star champion Chad Kemenah.

“Holy crap, we’re in victory lane here at Attica Raceway Park,” Spencer Bayston said. “I didn’t even know how to get to victory lane or where to go. I drove on to the front stretch, but I figured out pretty quick that was wrong. This place is absolutely packed. A big ‘thanks’ to all of the fans for coming out here tonight. Hopefully you guys enjoyed it.”

Pole-sitter Cole Duncan took command during the drop of the initial green flag, leading Shawn Dancer and California native Carson Macedo by the flag stand for the first time. The Lockbourne, Ohio, native maintained the top spot during the first seven circuits, ultimately surrendering the point position to Carson Macedo on lap eight. It took Macedo two attempts to get around Duncan, eventually using a textbook slide job between turns three and four to officially take command. Utilizing the very topside of the speedway, Macedo cruised out in front of the field for the next five circuits, but mechanical woes on lap 14 halted any winning potential.

From that point forward, Bayston was the man in charge; already climbing from the inside of row four to seize third on lap six, and moving into second on lap 11. After inheriting the top spot, Bayston opened his command immediately, and did so without any distractions. The former USAC National Midget Rookie of the Year hit traffic for the first time just beyond the halfway mark, but still maintained a three second advantage, eventually increasing his command to four seconds by lap 30.

A late-race caution on lap 33 would stack the field one last time, but a clear groove and clean air proved to be too much of an advantage for Bayston; crossing under the final checkers with a two second advantage ahead of Cole Duncan and the “Steel City Outlaw” Tim Shaffer.

“We were getting through traffic pretty clean there. I wasn’t really sure who was behind me. I could feel the rubber starting to build, so I just tried to be as conservative as I could with my tires,” Bayston said. “I can’t thank Kevin and Jordan Swindell, as well as my parents, enough for this opportunity. They have done so much with this program. This is going to be a fun year.”

One week from today, the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions will conclude their April tour of The Buckeye State with a visit to the Wayne County Speedway near Orrville, Ohio, on Saturday, April 22. It will be the first of four Wayne County Speedway appearances by “America’s Series” in 2017, one of which during the upcoming edition of Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Cometic Gasket, as well as the second running of the Pete Jacobs Memorial worth $10,000 on Sunday, September 3. Next Saturday’s Wayne County Speedway showcase will be the first official event of the 2017 season for “Orrville’s Historic Oval;” the 57th visit by the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions since 1970.

Wayne County Speedway will open gates at 3:00pm on Saturday, April 22. Qualifying time trials are scheduled to hit the speedway at 6:00pm, followed by an entire Arctic Cat All Star program complete with heat races and respective main events. Those interested in learning more should visit Wayne County Speedway live on the Web at www.waynecountyspeedway.com.

CHILLICOTHE, OH (April 9, 2017) - In dramatic fashion, Alvada, Ohio’s Chad Kemenah scored his first Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions victory of the 2017 season on Sunday night in Chillicothe, Ohio, driving around race leader Lee Jacobs on the final circuit to score $5,000 at Atomic Speedway. The five-time and defending Arctic Cat All Star champion, who started sixth on the main event grid, used a late-race caution and a wide, slicked-off racing surface to help stage his dramatic finish.

“Before heading out for the feature, my car owner, who is the greatest guy in the world, told me ‘remember, this is where we won our championship.’ That really gives you something to think about before going out to race,” Chad Kemenah explained. “I can’t say enough about Rob Hunter and this team. My brother does one heck of a job. He really makes my job easy.”

Outside pole-sitter Lee Jacobs took command during the drop of the initial green flag, soon followed by fellow full-time All Star Ryan Smith and Lockbourne, Ohio, native Cole Duncan to complete lap number one. Jacobs maintained control for the first 29 circuits, at one point separating himself from the rest of the field by nearly three seconds. Traffic came into play for the first time on lap eight, eventually allowing Armstrong, who overtook the second position just before halfway, and Duncan to close-in on the 1881 Racing/Simcox Grinding & Steel/No. 81.

Chad Kemenah, who already climbed two positions to find himself just outside of a podium spot, caught a big break on lap 20 when Duncan and Armstrong made contact with a spinning lapped car between turns one and two, also nearly collecting Lee Jacobs. Armstrong would get the worst of the incident and suffer from a flat left rear tire, forcing the New Castle, Indiana, native to restart at the rear of the field. Despite wing damage, Duncan maintained his position in the running order; keeping momentum and not stopping on the race track after making contact. With Armstrong surrendering his position, Kemenah moved into third for the restart, eventually moving by Duncan for second on lap 22.

Chasing Jacobs through traffic, Kemenah made his bid for the top spot on the 30th and final circuit, driving by Jacobs at the exit of turn two and surviving a last-ditch effort pass by the No. 81 through the final corner. Lee Jacobs would hold on to finish second, followed by Ryan Smith, Cole Duncan, and Dale Blaney.

For Kemenah, the victory was the 31st of his career during Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions competition and his second at Atomic Speedway. With his victory, equaling his third top-five finish of the 2017 Arctic Cat All Star season, the pilot of the Hunter Racing/Seneca Energy/No. 10H officially takes command of the Arctic Cat All Star championship point chase.

“The clearer the race track got, the better I got. We didn’t have a spectacular qualifying effort here tonight, but my crew kept plugging away. This is probably one of my favorite race tracks in the country. I want to thank all of you for coming out here and supporting [Brad McCown] and this race. Hopefully we put on one heck of a show for you guys,” said Chad Kemenah as he addressed the crowd.

The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions will return to competition in less than a week, revisiting Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio, on Saturday, April 15, for the 2017 HD Supply Spring Nationals. “America’s Series” last visited the home of “Ohio’s Finest Racing” on Saturday, September 3, during the inaugural Dirt Classic Ohio. Wooster, Ohio’s Sheldon Haudenschild scored the $10,000 top prize; the 13th Arctic Cat All Star victory of his career and his second-ever at Attica Raceway Park. The HD Supply Spring Nationals visit will go down in the books as the 113th total appearance at Attica Raceway Park by the Arctic Cat All Stars since their first visit on September 4, 1989.

HD Supply Spring Nationals gates are scheduled to open at 3:00pm on Saturday, April 15. Action will hit the speedway at 6:00pm, sharp, beginning with hot laps and qualifying time trials, followed by heat races and respective main events. Those who would like to learn more should visit Attica Raceway Park live on the Web at www.atticaracewaypark.com.

David Gravel gets a Gator; wins Arctic Cat All Star DIRTcar Nationals finale at Volusia Speedway Park

BARBERVILLE, FL (February 16, 2017) - For the first time in his young career, Watertown, Connecticut’s David Gravel is a main event winner in the Sunshine State, capturing the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions DIRTcar Nationals finale at the Volusia Speedway Park near Barberville, Florida. The victory, the third of his career during Arctic Cat All Star competition and his first since 2012, was conducted in near-demanding fashion; holding back Donny Schatz and Brad Sweet to lead all 30 circuits around the Volusia Speedway Park half-mile.

“This is definitely awesome,” David Gravel stated in victory lane. “I’ve never got to win in Florida and I’ve never got to win one of these gator trophies, so this is definitely cool. I have to thank all of the guys on the team; Barry, Zack, Derrick, Chad, Jen. They all did a great job preparing these race cars all winter. All of my sponsors; they make all of this possible. We are working for really good things this year, so this is a great start to that.”

Gravel, who started on the outside-front row, wasted no time getting to the front of the field, taking command during the initial drop of the green flag and stretching his early advantage to a near-three second lead. Even with two cautions, traffic coming into play by lap 10, and an abrasive coat of rubber starting to form on the surface of the speedway by lap 15, the pilot of the CJB Motorsports/GoMuddy.com/Big Game Treestands/No. 5 continued to hold his advantage, navigating forward while keeping Donny Schatz at a distance.

“[Donny Schatz] is definitely the best, so anytime you have an opportunity to beat him is a great thing,” Gravel stated. “The rubber started to come into play, so I had a little bit of an advantage at the end of the race. I was trying not to miss my marks while racing through traffic. I wanted to take my time and make sure I didn’t slip my tires. Our tires just made it, so thank goodness for that.”

With his second place performance, Donny Schatz, pilot of the familiar Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Arctic Cat/No. 15, will end his Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions Florida campaign with three victories and two runner-up finishes.

“We are happy with that,” Donny Schatz said regarding his Arctic Cat All Star performances in Florida. “The track kinda caught us off guard here tonight. I really didn’t expect it to take rubber like that, but it did, so it kinda set us up for a difficult second-half of the race. That’s the way it goes some days. This Arctic Cat team does a phenomenal job. I think we would rather have five victories during the last week, but who wouldn’t.”

The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions will enjoy a seven week hiatus before returning to competition on Saturday evening, April 8, at the Atomic Speedway near Chillicothe, Ohio. “America’s Series” hosted competition at the southern Ohio highbanks on two separate occasions in 2016; once during Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Cometic Gasket, and once again on October 22 during the Arctic Cat All Star championship weekend. NASCAR Cup star Kyle Larson earned the speedweek victory, with Wooster, Ohio’s Sheldon Haudenschild taking high honors on championship weekend.
