Spencer Bayston goes wire-to-wire for Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Cometic Gasket victory at Muskingum County Speedway

DRESDEN, OH (June 22, 2017) - For the second time in 2017, and for the second time in his career, Lebanon, Indiana’s Spencer Bayston is an Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions main event winner, this time scoring $5,000 during round six of Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Cometic Gasket at Muskingum County Speedway.

Aboard the Kevin Swindell-owned/Premier Truck Group/John Christner Trucking/No. 39, Bayston led all 30 circuits on Thursday evening at the Dresden-area oval, manhandling multiple waves of intense traffic, as well as an aggressive cushion at the top of the speedway, to clinch his first Arctic Cat All Star win since April. Fellow Indiana native Caleb Armstrong finished second, followed by Chad Kemenah, Tim Shaffer and Cole Duncan.

“I’m going to get most of the credit here tonight, but the people who really deserve the credit are the ones standing behind me,” Spencer Bayston said in victory lane. “This is a brand new race car. We rolled one over the other night at Wayne County Speedway, so we’ve been up until about four in the morning the last few nights working to get this one ready. Kevin and Jordan [Swindell], the whole crew; they all work so hard and make all of this happen. Without them, I wouldn’t be standing up here.”

Bayston’s 30-lap campaign at the front of the field started from the pole position, taking command right from the drop of the green flag over Caleb Armstrong and two-time Speedweek winner Tim Shaffer. Two early cautions, the first on lap five and the second on lap ten, were the only two momentum breakers for Bayston, but neither created any sort of distraction. Bayston’s lead was nearly three seconds on multiple occasions even while racing in traffic, and despite having to deal with dirty air, the Indiana native hardly faltered.

“We got to dirty air in traffic and my whole race changed it felt like,” Bayston said. “I had to kinda drive above [the cushion] a couple times, but it almost didn’t work for me because I nearly looped it. Despite all of that, I never really felt any pressure, so I was able to just cruise and bring it home.”

Caleb Armstrong’s runner-up finish was a season-high for the New Castle, Indiana, native. The second year Arctic Cat All Star traveler started second on the feature grid and battled in that position all 30 laps. Chad Kemenah, the current Arctic Cat All Star championship point leader, charged from 11th to finish third, solid enough to earn MSD Performance Hard Charger Award honors.

Limaland Motorsports Park in Lima, Ohio, will continue Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Cometic Gasket with round seven of competition on Friday evening, June 23. Limaland has hosted the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions on 30 separate occasions since their first visit in 1983, the most recent during the 2016 edition of Ohio Sprint Speedweek on June 24, 2016. “The Hurricane” Randy Hannagan scored the $5,000 top prize, his first-ever at the high banked quarter-mile during Arctic Cat All Star competition.

Limaland Motorsports Park will open main gates at 5:00pm tomorrow afternoon, Friday, June 23. Hot laps should hit the racing surface at 6:30pm, sharp. Those seeking additional news and notes should visit Limaland Motorsports Park live on the Web at www.limaland.com.

Tim Shaffer holds back Danny Dietrich for Waynesfield Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Cometic Gasket victory

WAYNESFIELD, OH (June 21, 2017) - A battle that lasted nearly 15 circuits around the Waynesfield Raceway Park high banks, the “Steel City Outlaw” Tim Shaffer held off Pennsylvania Posse invader Danny Dietrich to earn his second victory in five rounds of Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Cometic Gasket, scoring not only a $5,000 top prize, but also solidifying a $500 bonus on behalf of Cometic Gasket.

The victory, a first-ever at Waynesfield Raceway Park during Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions competition, raises Shaffer’s career win total to 58 with “America’s Series.” “Double-D” Danny Dietrich held on to finish second at the conclusion of the 35-lap program, followed by Chad Kemenah, Cole Duncan and Parker Price-Miller.

“I just can’t say enough about this race team. Hats off to all of my guys tonight. They did a great job,” Tim Shaffer explained in victory lane. “I’m surrounded by great people. We are having a lot of fun right now. When we win, it’s even better. This is awesome.”

Tim Shaffer’s campaign at the front of the field commenced on lap 16, finally working around early race leader and Aussie visitor Sammy Walsh. After taking command of the top spot, the Aliquippa, Pennsylvania, native soon entered traffic, eventually tracked down by Danny Dietrich who worked into second by lap 18. Despite Shaffer’s ability to navigate traffic, Dietrich never lost sight of the Rudzik Excavating/Scoville Designs/VRP Shocks/No. 49X, racing within two to three car lengths even while racing through periods of heavy traffic.

By lap 28, traffic intensified and so did the battle for the lead, as Dietrich made several attempts to work underneath Shaffer through both corners of the speedway. After avoiding chaos while racing three wide with a lapped car, Shaffer and Dietrich ended up making contact at the exit of turn four, ultimately ending all of Dietrich’s momentum. Shaffer’s lead quickly opened back up, crossing under the final checkers nearly two seconds ahead of Dietrich.

“I just had to sit up in the seat,” Tim Shaffer said. “The ledge on the race track was really tricky tonight and we had a really tight race car on top of that. We had that delay for the lighting issues, so we used that to talk about how we could make the car better. Cody (Jacobs) made some changes and it felt a lot better. At the end of the day, I got lucky.”

For Danny Dietrich, the runner-up finish increases his top-five streak to two during Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Cometic Gasket, all beginning with a fifth place performance on Tuesday evening at Sharon Speedway.

“The car was really fast tonight,” Danny Dietrich stated, pilot of the Tom Buch-owned/Apex Structures/DKW Transport/Sweeney Cars/Racer’s New & Used Parts Warehouse/No. 13D. “I need to thank everyone who has been helping us out all week, especially Tom (Buch) for giving me this opportunity to race. We were good. I was trying to run on the curb and sail it through one and two pretty good. I thought I was going to clear (Tim Shaffer), but I didn’t quite get him. I really didn’t expect him to work back around me and that lapped car, but that is what makes Tim such a good racer; he’s clean and he’s fast.”

For the first time since June 27, 2006, the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions will return to the Muskingum County Speedway in Zanesville, Ohio, this time for round six of Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Cometic Gasket on Thursday evening, June 22. “America’s Series” has contested 12 separate events at Muskingum County Speedway since their first appearance in 1984. Of the 12 contested events, three drivers were victorious on more than one occasion; Kenny Jacobs, Dale Blaney and Kelly Kinser each own two wins.

Muskingum County Speedway will open pit gates at 3:00pm tomorrow afternoon, June 22. A mandatory drivers meeting will be conducted at 5:45pm, followed by hot laps at 6:30pm. Those seeking additional news and notes should visit Muskingum County Speedway live on the Web at www.muskingumcountyspeedway.com.

Kyle Larson leads California podium sweep at Sharon Speedway; second consecutive Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Cometic Gasket victory

HARTFORD, OH (June 20, 2017) - Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson picked up right where he left off on Monday evening, this time scoring a second consecutive Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Cometic Gasket main event victory during competition at Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio, ultimately holding off a pair of California natives for a $5,000 top prize.

Larson, who started sixth on the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions feature grid, wasted no time working his way to the front of the feature field. The pilot of the Paul Silva-owned/Finley Farms/No. 57 moved around early leader Rico Abreu on lap four, eventually withstanding multiple waves of traffic, as well as mid-race and late race charges from Abreu and Carson Macedo. The Arctic Cat All Star victory was the sixth of Larson’s career with all six occurring during Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Cometic Gasket.

“It’s really cool to win this race a year after Bryan Clauson won this race. The Clauson family means a lot to me,” Kyle Larson explained. “Paul Silva really made some big improvements tonight. He tried some things in the dash, but we were really slow. He made some more changes and they really worked out. Hats off to Paul. He’s the smartest guy in the pit area.”

Kyle Larson was in charge, but the battle for second and third may have attracted just as much attention. Rico Abreu and Carson Macedo battled for nearly half of the entire 30-lap distance, exchanging positions and sliders on multiple occasions. Despite lap after lap of position swapping and slide job attempts, Macedo did not officially overtake Abreu for the runner-up position until lap 23.

“I had a lot of fun here tonight,” Macedo said, pilot of the Lucas Oil/Weld Wheels/Gaerte Engines by Topp Performance Race Parts/No. 3G. “This ended up being such an awesome race track. If you would have told me it was going to be that good at the beginning of the night, I would have never believed it. This team gave me a great car. Kyle Larson is the best right now. To run second to him, we’ll take that and move forward. I’m pretty happy. Everything is going pretty well for this team.”

A caution on lap 22 was the only pause during the Ohio Sprint Speedweek program. Despite the sudden stop in momentum, Larson used the restart to his advantage and instantly opened his lead to over two seconds. One last surge by Macedo with a few circuits remaining closed the gap, but Larson still crossed under the final checkers 1.25 seconds ahead of the running order.

“This dirt was great, too,” Larson explained. “You could run from the inside tires to the outside wall. I actually looked up at the scoreboard at one point and noticed that Macedo got around Abreu, so I knew he had to be pretty good because I saw Abreu’s nose a few times racing below me. I thought I was running a pretty good line which was going to make it hard for Macedo to pass me. I have no idea where he was running, whether it was on the top or bottom. Regardless, it’s pretty cool to have a California podium sweep here.”

Negating a prior statement, when the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions return to Sharon Speedway on July 8 for the annual Lou Blaney Memorial, race teams will compete for a $5,000 top prize, not the recently stated $10,000.

Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Cometic Gasket will continue on Wednesday evening, June 21, with a visit to the Waynesfield Raceway Park near Waynesfield, Ohio. An event originally scheduled for Sunday, June 18, the fifth round of Ohio Sprint Speedweek will feature the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions for the tenth time in Waynesfield Raceway Park history, most recently during the 2016 edition of Ohio Sprint Speedweek when Wooster, Ohio’s Sheldon Haudenschild earned the $5,000 share.

Waynesfield Raceway Park will open pit gates at 3:00pm tomorrow afternoon, June 21, with main gates to follow at 5:00pm. Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions competition will begin with hot laps at 6:00pm, followed by racing at 7:00pm, sharp. Those who cannot attend should tune-in live on www.thecushion.com. A pay-per-view broadcast will be available for purchase which will include the entire evening program.

Kyle Larson climbs from eighth to win Ohio Sprint Speedweek round three at Wayne County Speedway

ORRVILLE, OH (June 20, 2017) - Less than a week after earning his first World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series victory of the 2017 season, and just 24 hours after earning his second NASCAR Cup Series victory of the 2017 season, Kyle Larson was victorious with the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions, this time claiming round three of Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Cometic Gasket on Monday, June 19, at Wayne County Speedway.

Larson, who started eighth on the main event grid, took command officially on lap 13 over Vienna, West Virginia’s Cale Conley. It was a fifth career victory for Larson during Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions competition, his second at Wayne County Speedway. Interestingly enough, all five Arctic Cat All Star victories during Larson’s career have taken shape during Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Cometic Gasket.

“I was a little nervous during our dash tonight, but we were able to gain a few positions and increase our starting position by a few rows,” Larson explained in victory lane, pilot of the Finley Farms/Howard Johnson of Lima/No. 57. “I just tried to be patient the whole race. I knew we had a really good car.”

Larson’s march to the front started right from the drop of the green flag, appearing inside the top-five as early as lap six. A series of cautions, one for early race leader Brad Haudenschild, kept the feature field stacked together on three separate occasions during the first six circuits.

Unfortunately for all of those in attendance, one pause in action was caused by a power outage. The track lighting would soon reappear.

By lap nine, Larson moved his way into third, eventually setting up a pass to take second on lap 11, soon followed by the winning move on lap 13; driving under Cale Conley at the entrance of turn three and having full command by the exit of turn four. From that point forward, Larson was flawless, even surviving one final caution with less than two circuits remaining. Tim Shaffer and Caleb Helms, who were each battling for second and third in the running order, made contact just before the flagstand on lap 29. Their misfortune allowed Kasey Kahne and Chad Kemenah to solidify themselves on the podium.

“I got to traffic and I started to worry a little bit,” Kyle Larson explained. “I thought I saw the guys racing behind me creep up on my inside a little bit. I saw a ‘4’ and ‘10’ on the scoreboard and I thought Kasey [Kahne] and Chad [Kemenah] both started pretty far back, so I knew they had to be pretty good. Luckily, we hung on those last few laps and got the win.”

With two, full nights in the books, the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions will continue Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Cometic Gasket competition on Tuesday evening with an appearance at Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio. It will be the first of two visits by the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions at the state-of-the-art venue, with the second awarding $10,000 on Saturday, July 8, during the annual Lou Blaney Memorial.

Sharon Speedway will open pit gates at 4:00pm tomorrow - Tuesday, June 20 - with hot laps to follow at 6:20pm.
