Brent Marks Caps Emotional Evening with Thrilling Eldora Triumph

ROSSBURG, OH - September 21, 2018 — On an emotional night at one of the most famous dirt tracks in the world, Brent Marks won a thrilling race, passing fellow Central Pennsylvania Outlaw Logan Schuchart for the lead on Lap 23 and holding off a furious charge from 13th-starting Dave Blaney, Schuchart and 23rd-starting Greg Wilson. It was Marks' third career World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series victory and first at the historic Eldora Speedway. Marks dedicated the win to Greg Hodnett, who passed tragically the night before in an unsanctioned race in Pennsylvania.

Logan Schuchart won the Sears Craftsman Dash to earn the pole for the 30-Lap Feature, alongside David Gravel. Schuchart darted out to the early lead and Brent Marks, who started third, blasted around the bottom to take second down the backstretch.

Schuchart set a torrid pace out front as Marks went to war with Kraig Kinser for the runner-up position. With Marks banging down the cushion and Kinser catfishing around the bottom, the duo battled side-by-side for the better part of five laps.

As Schuchart reached heavy lapped traffic, Kinser and Marks’ battle continued and they both closed in on the Shark Racing No.1S. Kinser edged Marks by a nose at the line on Lap 12, which would prove crucial as the caution would fly for Parker Price-Miller, who lost a left rear tire running in the top ten.

Schuchart elected the bottom on the double-file restart, moving Kinser to his outside. Kinser, who was glued to the bottom prior to the caution, fell back on the start, as Marks moved back into second.

Some contact the following lap between a slew of cars in the top ten, sent Gio Scelzi high into turn one, grazing the wall. Scelzi came down off the wall and got together with Daryn Pittman, resulting in the Kasey Kahne Racing No.9 upside down. Both drivers were uninjured but done for the evening.

The ensuing double-file restart saw Schuchart again choose the bottom with Marks to his outside this time. Schuchart remained in command with Marks in tow. 13th-starting Dave Blaney threw his name in the ring, battling Gravel and Kinser for the third position, three-wide at times.

Simultaneously, 23rd-starting Greg Wilson was coming, in typical Greg Wilson Eldora fashion, glued to the inside guard rail.

Back up front, Marks was closing in on Schuchart and threw a slide job for the lead into turn one on Lap 23. Schuchart fought back underneath Marks to maintain the lead going into turn three, where he went to the bottom. Marks put his family-owned No.19 right up against the wall, grabbing the cushion off of turn four and taking command of the field to lead the lap.

Marks powered away from Schuchart, who now had his hands full with the hard-charging Blaney and Wilson. Blaney took second from Schuchart and set his sights on Marks. After Marks got held up ever so slightly in traffic, Blaney attempted a slide job in turn three with three laps remaining, but Marks stayed on the gas and powered around the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame member to maintain control.

Blaney’s slide job attempt for the lead cost him momentum as Wilson and Schuchart, who found late race speed right up against the outside wall, caught and surpassed the veteran by the White Flag.

But tonight, there was no catching Brent Marks, as the Myerstown, PA native went on to win his third World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series Feature of the season and of his career.

“We’re all really thinking about Greg [Hodnett] and his family, he’s somebody I’ve respected tremendously throughout my whole career and was always a fan of growing up in Central Pennsylvania. This race is for him and his whole family and everyone back in Pennsylvania mourning his loss,” an emotional Marks said to a large applause from the Eldora Speedway crowd.

“This is awesome, I can’t believe I won a race at Eldora. This is my first Outlaw win that my Mom and Dad were able to see. I can’t thank my guys Jesse and Dallas enough, and we just added Jim Shuttlesworth. Last week was our first weekend together, we kept talking and improving throughout the night and working together well. This is special, I can’t believe I’m standing in Victory Lane at Eldora,” Marks added.

When asked about the race itself, Marks talked about the tricky cushion, “I knew I needed to be more aggressive on the wall, but the top was right up against the wall and I didn’t want to tear this thing up. I changed my entry into turn three and Logan started coming to me,”

“I can’t believe it’s my sophomore season with the World of Outlaws and I have three wins now, I can’t thank everyone who helps out with this operation enough,” Marks concluded.

Fellow Central Pennsylvania native Logan Schuchart settled for second after leading 22 laps, “It’s tough, lapped cars are so hard to judge. It’s hard leading a race and knowing where to go, I didn’t feel as comfortable up top and I felt I was slowing down, so I moved down. Brent drove a great race.”

“This is all for the Heffner Racing No.27 team and everybody back home, we’ve got a couple of PA boys up front and this is all for them,” Schuchart added with emotion.

The obvious KSE Hard Charger was 23rd-starting Greg Wilson who finished on the podium for the second time this year at Eldora.

“We’re good when it slicks off. This is how the tracks need to be. The race track was awesome tonight, there was passing,” Wilson said before reflecting about the recent tragedy in Sprint Car Racing.

“My heart goes out to the Hodnett family. I woke up this morning and looked at my wife and girls and wondered if I should keep doing this. I love it, though. I wouldn’t trade this opportunity to race with my wife and kids at Eldora in front of all you fans for anything,” Wilson, the Ohio native, said to a thunderous roar from the crowd.

Dave Blaney faded to fourth in the closing laps, still no small feat coming from 13th, with Gravel completing the top five.

Kraig Kinser was strong all evening and settled for sixth with Hunter Schuerenburg, who set Quick Time, and Sheldon Haudenschild finishing seventh and eighth, respectively. Rico Abreu charged from 21st to ninth with 17th-starting Jason Sides completing the top-ten.

The World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series makes the trek to Western Pennsylvania tomorrow night, September 22 with the running of the Commonwealth Clash in Sarver, PA. As always, if you can’t make it to the track, watch every lap LIVE on

Wheatland, MO (September 21, 2018) - The fans in attendance at Lucas Oil Speedway on Friday night were treated to a thrilling show as the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial continued on with the Rockwell Security qualifying night. Another field of 39 POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprints League competitors signed-in for action, giving us a new event record of 78 total entries this weekend. At the conclusion of Friday's show, another new winner rose to the top as Anthony Nicholson of Millingston, Tennessee outlasted a fleet of challengers in the green-to-checkered 25-lapper to score the preliminary triumph at the 'Diamond of the Dirt Tracks."

Opening the night with another four-set series of group qualifying hot laps, quicktime honors were taken by Kyle Cummins (16.053), Anthony Nicholson (15.771), Danny Smith (16.055) and Colten Cottle (15.358) as the Rockwell Security qualifying night fired off. In heat race action, Hinchman Racewear heat one was taken by Kyle Cummins, Bell Racing USA heat two was won by Chad Goff, Schure Built Suspension heat three was claimed by Wyatt Burks and Wilwood Disc Brakes heat four went to Mitch Wissmiller. A trio of ten-lap qualifiers was next, which saw Riley Kreisel score High Side Design qualifier one, Quinton Benson take Indy Race Parts qualifier two and Matt Moore steal Chalk Racing Stix qualifier three.

With another eight-car inversion mixing up the feature field, it was Anthony Nicholson and Mitch Wissmiller leading us to the green flag. However, neither would command the opening circuit, as third-starter Matt Moore methodically hit the bottom and snuck by both to lead the first lap. Lead change after lead change would follow as Nicholson took the lead on lap two, before Wissmiller held the point on the third circuit.
Wissmiller finally grabbed a firm command of the top spot as he started to sneak away, blasting the top of the 3/8th-mile surface in his No. 1 entry. While Wissmiller maintained the lead, Wyatt Burks snuck into the second spot from fifth and Riley Kreisel and Kyle Cummins were hustling into the top five.

As Wissmiller remained committed to the cushion, Burks approached him by rolling the bottom and overtook him for the lead on the tenth circuit. While a new leader emerged, a hectic battle ensued for the runner-up spot as Wissmiller, Nicholson, Kreisel, Cummins and Moore were practically competing under a blanket. Taking over second just past halfway, Kreisel looked to be the firm challenger for Burks' lead, but a mistake on the cushion sent Kreisel fading and moved Nicholson up to P2 with ten to go.

Reeling in Burks lap-after-lap, Nicholson re-appeared after falling to fourth and was there to contend in the late running. As Burks slipped off the bottom of turns one and two, Nicholson capitalized and drove by him to reclaim the top spot on the 20th circuit. From there, Nicholson went unchallenged en route to a victory.

The Friday night triumph marked the first of Nicholson's POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprints League career. It was an emotional win for the Tennessee native, who admittedly had a troubling 2018 season, prior to this huge breakthrough on a big stage. Nicholson's victory also made it 19 different winners in 26 WAR races this season, with 11 of those being first-time winners.

Following Nicholson to the line on Friday night was Wyatt Burks in the second spot after leading ten laps around the midway point. Entering the feature as the LRB, Inc. #HighPointMan, Kyle Cummins continued his stellar night and grabbed an eighth-to-third charge in the feature. Making a last-lap pass to take the fourth position, Oklahoma's Matt Moore continued his streak of never finishing outside the top five with WAR, as tonight marked his third race with the league. Falling to fifth after a nearly-disastrous last-lap encounter with lap traffic, Warsaw, Missouri's Riley Kreisel hung on to round out the top five in his No. 90. Closing out the top ten was Colten Cottle in sixth, Danny Smith in seventh, Zach Daum in eighth, Andrew Deal in ninth and Quinton Benson in tenth.

With both preliminary nights now complete, all that remains for the 2018 Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial is the Saturday night championship finale.

Johnny Herrera Thrilling In Night 2 Victory At The Hockett/McMillin Memorial

Bryan Hulbert - WHEATLAND, Mo. (September 21, 2018) Four leaders over the course of 25 laps, and the one leading the most important lap on Friday night was Johnny Herrera. Snapping an 80-race winless streak, the Mesilla Valley Transportation No. 45x was masterful on the high-line en-route to his preliminary night win in the Hockett/McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway.
"We needed this win. I'm pretty sure it's been over a year since we won one of these things. We've been close all year, and just couldn't get it done. We've changed cars, bars, just about everything but it all came together tonight," commented Herrera.

Johnny's third career win at Lucas Oil Speedway, the 2013 Hockett/McMillin Memorial Champion will take the green from the third starting spot in Saturday's $10,000 to win A-Feature.

"We've been good here, but not great so we'll keep working at it for tomorrow and see if we can get another one."
Chasing Wayne Johnson and Matt Covington on the start, Johnny slipped to fourth as the No. 47x of Dylan Westbrook snuck by for third right as Matt Covington took over the race lead on Lap 4 by 0.001 seconds over Wayne Johnson. Contending with Westbrook, the Ohsweken Speedway No. 47x grabbed the runner-up spot only to have the red for Roger Crockett bring the race back to Lap 5.

Keeping pace over the field on the restart, Covington kept a 10-car length advantage over the race for second as Johnson, Westbrook, and Herrera began battling with the caution coming out working Lap 10 as Westbrook went around in turn two.

Moving Johnny to third, the New Mexico shoe went to work on Wayne for second with the high line pass coming on Lap 12.
Chasing from the fifth starting spot, Jake Bubak paced patiently around the bottom in the Howard Law No. 9x. Moving to third on Lap 13, Bubak shot past Herrera on Lap 14 and took over the lead from Matt Covington one lap later.

Maintaining his pace around the hub of the three-eights oval, Bubak held onto the race lead until Lap 18. With his run building on the cushion, Herrera made the race-winning pass the following lap.

Opening his advantage to 1.020 seconds at the drop of the checkered flag, it was Tony Bruce, Jr. from the 13th starting spot who advanced to claim runner-up honors in the Tiger Towing No. 86, with the pass on Bubak on Lap 23.

Jake would settle for third with Matt Covington and Wayne Johnson slipping to complete the top-five. With a win and a fifth-place finish on the weekend, Wayne Johnson will lead Saturday's $10,000 to win A-Feature to the green.

Rolling up from 10th, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. crossed sixth and will start to the outside of the front row on Saturday night. Rebounding from a provisional on Thursday night, Seth Bergman moved from 11th to seventh. Advancing out of a B-Feature, Derek Hagar was the night's CP-Carrillo Hard Charger; moving ahead 12 positions to eighth. Blake Hahn finished ninth with Jack Dover making up the top-ten.

The 8th annual Hockett/McMillin Memorial concludes on Saturday, September 22 with the action going green at 6:35 P.M. (CT). In overall event points, the top-eight drivers locked into Saturday's finale is Wayne Johnson (312), Sam Hafertepe, Jr. (299), Johnny Herrera (290), Tony Bruce, Jr. (271), Matt Covington (269), Scott Bogucki (263), Derek Hagar (261), and Dylan Westbrook (259). The remainder of the field will drop into four Last Chance Qualifiers, going 10 laps, taking the Top 2 from each into the A-Feature. After that, drivers that don't transfer will go into B-Feature action.

USAC National Midget point leader Logan Seavey. (Brian Bouder Photo)


By: Richie Murray - USAC Media

Rossburg, Ohio.........Midgets on the high banks of Eldora Speedway are breathtakingly spectacular and that's what this Saturday's 37thrunning of the "4-Crown Nationals" will surely provide when the USAC P1 Insurance National Midgets make their lone annual trip to the legendary half-mile.

Series point leader Logan Seavey may technically be a Rookie as he eyes his first career midget start at Eldora. But the 21-year-old Sutter, Calif. native appears as that in name only as he carries a 98-point lead into the race on the strength of consistency with a pair of wins in Du Quoin, Ill. and Sweet Springs, Mo. In July, Seavey made his initial expedition of Eldora a memorable one, leading 53 laps on his way to an eighth-place finish in his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut.

Among his Keith Kunz Motorsports/Curb-Agajanian teammates are 2016 "4-Crown" midget winner Rico Abreu of St. Helena, Calif., who always offers a thrill at Eldora. In that 2016 race, the 2014 USAC National Midget champ swept the night, recording fast time, winning his heat, and then dominating the feature.

Rico takes over the helm of the straight No. 97 while reigning series champ and 2017 race winner Spencer Bayston of Lebanon, Ind. will give it a go in the No. 97K, returning to the seat following injuries suffered in an August racing accident.

Broken Arrow, Oklahoma's Brady Bacon has been on a roll of late, winning 15-grand in a midget at the #BC39 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, becoming a father for the third time and then winning the "Jim Hurtubise Classic" USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car race at the Terre Haute (Ind.) Action Track, all within a nine-day span.

Tucson, Arizona's Jerry Coons, Jr. heads a talent-loaded Petry Motorsports bunch who've all found a bevy of success. The USAC Triple Crown champ won the 2010 midget portion of the "4-Crown." He'll be joined by upstart Broken Arrow, Oklahoma driver Jason McDougal, who will be laying his eyes on Eldora Speedway for the first time ever this weekend. Chris Windom, a past winner in the Sprint and Silver Crown portions of the "4-Crown," joins in a third Petry car for a run to add a third prong to his crown.

Phoenix, Arizona's Chad Boat knows how to get it done on the fast, half-mile dirt ovals as evidenced by his three career victories on the Belleville (Kans.) High Banks. He's currently fourth in points with two wins on the season. He finished fourth and led a lap back in 2016.

Justin Grant, of Ione, Calif., was the victor of the Sprint Car feature at the 2016 "4-Crown," but the versatile wheelman has shown the ability to get the job done in any division, winning this year in both a Silver Crown car and a Midget, which he did for the Clauson Marshall Racing crew in Fairbury, Neb. in July. His teammates are a stacked bunch too! Indianapolis, Indiana's Tyler Courtney has won nine times in a sprint car with USAC in 2018 and he's the reigning winner of the Silver Crown 50-lapper at Eldora a year ago. Angola, Indiana's Zeb Wise has turned some heads this season in his Rookie campaign, winning in August at Lanco in Pennsylvania to become the youngest winner in the history of the series, then followed that up with a charge from 18th to 1st in the Pursuit Race during the "BC39."

The Dooling No. 63 is a familiar sight in victory lane, doing so already twice this year with Cullman, Alabama's Kevin Thomas, Jr. at the controls. Back in 2014, the ride captured the "4-Crown" with Bryan Clauson at the wheel. Thomas is looking to notch his first career Eldora Speedway win.

On Saturday, pits open at 11:30am, spectator gates open at noon, a USAC autograph session will take place from 3-4pm in the fan zone, drivers meeting at 4:30pm and cars on track at 6pm. General admission tickets are $30 for ages 13 & up and $30 for ages 12 & under. Reserved tickets are $34 for ages 13 & up and $14 for ages 12 & under: $14.

Saturday's full events will have LIVE audio on the USAC app along with LIVE video on

2017 '4-Crown Nationals' USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car winner C.J. Leary. (Ryan Sellers Photo)


By: Richie Murray - USAC Media

Rossburg, Ohio.........C.J. Leary seems more than poised for a breakout performance this Saturday in the 37th running of the "4-Crown Nationals" presented by NKT.TV at Eldora Speedway.

He's led in four of the past six races for a total of 69 laps, 38 more than any other driver during that span. The results have been there: a 2nd, 6th, 6th, 4th and 2nd. Yet, none of those include a 1st, a cage stand, a check or one of the other many spoils of victory.

Those "spoils" were something the Greenfield, Indiana driver got to experience in full effect last year after grabbing his USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car "4-Crown" triumph at Eldora.

Leary is among six past winners expected to compete in Saturday's stacked field, including Dave Darland (1999), Robert Ballou (2007), Chris Windom (2013), Brady Bacon (2014) and Justin Grant (2016).

Darland, of Lincoln, Indiana, has been a revelation this year, scoring three victories and is fifth in points. Rocklin, California's Ballou has scored five of his 28 USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car wins at Eldora, including the first three of his career back in 2007 & 2010. Windom, of Canton, Ill., got his in 2013, then won again in the Silver Crown car at Eldora in 2016. Ione, California's Grant punched in a W back in 2016.

The points race is tighter than a Chinese Finger Trap, with no driver in the top-three able to separate themselves from each other at the top. Cullman, Alabama's Kevin Thomas, Jr. leads the standings by 21 following his victory last Saturday at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Ind. His venerable Dynamics, Inc. No. 69 has scored five wins in the "4-Crown' over the years, including 1999 with Darland, 2006 with Tracy Hines, 2009 with Jerry Coons, Jr., 2011 with Kyle Larson and 2014 with Bacon.

Tyler Courtney runs second in the standings behind Thomas and is having a banner year that includes a series-high nine wins. A victory Saturday at Eldora would put him on an exclusive list of drivers who've won double-digit races in a single season along with Tom Bigelow (14), J.J. Yeley & Robert Ballou (13), Larry Dickson & Pancho Carter (12), Bubby Jones (11), Dickson, Carter & Jay Drake (10).

Courtney's current tally of nine wins in a season is tied for the tenth winningest season in the history of the series, equaling Parnelli Jones (1961), Roger McCluskey (1966) and Rick Hood (1985).

One thing all those drivers have in common is that they've won a USAC National Sprint Car feature at Eldora in the very same year they accumulated double-digit wins. Courtney has yet to win at Eldora this season and Saturday marks his last shot. Bacon and Windom won the two most recent trips to Eldora back in May of this year.

Windom, of Canton, Ill., is third in points, only 54 out of the lead as he seeks his second career series title.

Leary's bid for a repeat USAC Sprint Car win at the "4-Crown" has been duplicated five previous times by Steve Kinser in 1981-82, Steve Butler in 1988-89, Jack Hewitt in 1990-91 & 1997-98 and Bud Kaeding in 2001-02.

This Saturday's event will mark the 199th USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car race held at Eldora Speedway, which is the most appearances at any track in series history.

On Saturday, pits open at 11:30am, spectator gates open at noon, a USAC autograph session will take place from 3-4pm in the fan zone, drivers meeting at 4:30pm and cars on track at 6pm. General admission tickets are $30 for ages 13 & up and $30 for ages 12 & under. Reserved tickets are $34 for ages 13 & up and $14 for ages 12 & under: $14.
