Greg Hodnett takes Salute to the Troops victory at Susquehanna Speedway

YORK HAVEN, PA (August 20, 2017) - Snapping an Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions winless streak that dates back to June 7, 2015, Spring Grove, Pennsylvania’s Greg Hodnett made his return to Arctic Cat All Star victory lane by conquering the Salute to the Troops program at Susquehanna Speedway in York Haven, Pennsylvania. Hodnett, who led all 30 circuits on Sunday, nearly swept the entire evening program by earning victories during his respective heat race and dash before claiming his $5,000 payday. Lucas Wolfe chased Hodnett to the final checkers, followed by Lance Dewease, Anthony Macri and Brock Zearfoss.

“I’m really excited to be in this position,” Greg Hodnett said in victory lane. “I can’t thank Mike Heffner enough for what he does for me and this team. Most picture the ‘Month of Money’ as leading up to Knoxville, but for us here in Pennsylvania, the ‘Month of Money’ basically starts now. We have a lot of big paying shows coming up. This is a great way to head into the next few weeks.”

Greg Hodnett and Anthony Macri led the starting grid to green on Sunday night at Susquehanna Speedway. Hodnett earned the initial advantage and controlled the first two circuits before yellow flags waved for the first time on lap three. Anthony Macri raced second as caution flags waved, followed by Lucas Wolfe and Brock Zearfoss.

Green flag conditions resumed with Hodnett returning to his post at the front of the field. Wolfe drove by Macri during the lap three restart to advance into second, still followed by Zearfoss and eventually Lance Dewease.

Hodnett led the field to traffic for the first time on lap eight which narrowed his near-two second advantage that was built just before the front-runners found the back of the pack. Wolfe used traffic to his benefit and started to pick away at Hodnett’s lead while battling lapped cars. Despite Wolfe’s ability drive through traffic, Hodnett’s ability was just as impressive; keeping two to three lapped cars between himself and Wolfe as he navigated the bottom edge of the speedway.

As the lap counter continued to count up, Hodnett’s lead continued to grow, expanding to just over two seconds by the midpoint of the 30-lap feature program, eventually reaching four seconds just before caution flags reappeared on lap 26.

The main event’s second and final caution set-up a five-lap dash to the finish with Greg Hodnett still in control, followed by Lucas Wolfe, Anthony Macri and Lance Dewease. When green flag conditions waved, Hodnett returned to the bottom and wasted to time returning to a lengthy command, ultimately stretching the gap to nearly two seconds by the time the final checkers flew. Lucas Wolfe chased Hodnett to the flagstand, followed by Lance Dewease, Anthony Macri and Brock Zearfoss.

“It wasn’t the best place to race to gain a lot of straightaway speed, but it got us where we are,” Greg Hodnett said. “Traffic got kind of tricky there in some spots. There were a lot of guys racing pretty hard in front of us; chopping each other and driving all over the track. I’m just thankful to be up here.”

With the four-race, Central Pennsylvania swing officially in the books, the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions will switch gears once again and prepare for an Atomic Speedway doubleheader on Friday and Saturday, August 25-26. The 3rd Annual Open Wheel Championship will headline action at the Chillicothe 1/4-mile, complete with two, full programs awarding a total winner’s share equaling $15,000 over the course of two days.

Open Wheel Championship preliminary competition will award $5,000 on Friday evening, August 25, followed by a $10,000-to-win finale on Saturday, August 26. Those seeking additional news and notes should visit Atomic Speedway live on the Web at www.atomicspeedway.net.

David Gravel Back on Track at Nodak

Gravel ends Schatz 5-race win streak at Nodak with 13th win of the seaosn

MINOT, ND - August 20, 2017 - After a pair of pedestrian finishes Friday and Saturday, David Gravel and the CJB Motorsports No.5 team switched cars and scored their 13th victory of the season Sunday night at Nodak Speedway. Gravel's win stopped Donny Schatz, who finished second, five-race win streak at the Minot oval. Brad Sweet challenged Gravel for the lead early, but ended up settling for third.

Gravel led all 35 laps, although it was not easy. The Nodak Speedway track crew watered the track prior to the Feature, leaving the surface faster and heavier than many teams anticipated.

The inside row got a good intial start, allowing third place starting Brad Sweet to be second by the backstretch. Schatz got in line in third as the track continued to widen out as the Feature progressed. Sweet pulled even with Gravel for the lead multiple times coming off of turn four, but could never pull ahead.

The first caution of the event came for Jason Sides, who was backwards in turn four, on lap 24. Sheldon Haudenschild made contact with the wall and spun on the ensuing restart. Sheldon was running sixth at the time.

Gravel extended his lead once again, made the right decisions in lapped traffic and picked up the victory without seeing another serious challenge. When asked about stopping Schatz five race win streak at Nodak, Gravel said with a smile, "He wins too much. I want some wins too."

"We brought this car down and I'm glad we got it done tonight because we were not very good the last two nights. This is three straight wins for this car," the Watertown, CT native said upon exiting his No.5 machine.

Like many, Schatz anticipated the track would slow down earlier in the race. "We got going at the end. I think I used way too much of my tires to get there, though. We did the best we could and sometimes you are going to have that," a content Schatz said.

Schatz scored at least a top-five finish in every start this season in his home state of North Dakota. He spoke highly about the North Dakota faithful, who packed the grandstands for the third consecutive night, "North Dakota has a huge presence with the World of Outlaws and I don't think anyone realizes how big it is. Thank you to the fans, without you guys we would not have nearly as much fun as we do."

Brad Sweet picked up his 44th top-five of the finish of the season, completing the podium. "We were right there a lot of the race. David never made any mistakes and then I made one and Donny got by me," Sweet said. "All in all it was a good night."

Shane Stewart and Daryn Pittman completed the top five. Saturday's Feature winner at Red River Valley, Jason Johnson, picked up the KSE Hard Charger award in sixth.

The World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series takes a few days off before returning to the Black Hills Speedway in Rapid City, SD Friday August 25th.

ASCS National Sprint Series



Sam Hafertepe, Jr. Dominates Lucas Oil ASCS At Missouri State Fair Speedway

SEDALIA, Mo. (August 20, 2017) Picking up his second win of the season at the Missouri State Fair Speedway, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. made it 11 Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network wins in 2017 with Sunday's triumph at the "Historic Half-Mile".

Taking his overall win total on the season to lucky No. 13, Hafertepe began his 25 lap quest from the cushion side of the front row with Aaron Reutzel taking the green from the pole.
Chasing the No. 87 on the start, Hafertepe ran anywhere from two to six car lengths away from Reutzel's back bumper as the pair rolled up on traffic with five laps complete. Both running the cushion in turns one and two, Hafertepe began searching for options at the opposite end of the Speedway. Sliding himself through the third and fourth turns, Sam was on par with Aaron's pace.

Working the eighth trip around the Missouri State Fair Speedway, the cushion in turn-two would end up being Aaron Reutzel's undoing as the Momentum Suspension No. 87 hopped the curb and spun to a stop off the exit of the second turn.

"Traffic was tough, and I knew Aaron was going to be running hard and that's what happened is he ran just a little too hard in traffic and got bottled up and gave us a clean track," commented Hafertepe who has one four Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour events in Missouri. "I wasn't really trying anything. Really, I was just waiting for him to mess up. That was my game plan the whole race because we just had a really good car."

Handing the Heidbreder Foundation Service/Keith Dobbs Motorsports No. 15h command of the A-Feature, as the field reverted to Lap 7, Sam was gone quickly from the battle for second between Giovanni Scelzi in the BDS Motorsports No. 1, and the RAMS No. 14k of Kyle Bellm. Taking over the runner-up spot from Giovanni, the driver from Nixa, Mo. would not be alone on the pass as Brian Brown maneuvered his seventh starting Casey's General Store/FVP No. 21 to third.

Trading the second position a number of times, the pair would not be able to run-down Sam Hafertepe, Jr. even as the No. 15h rolled through traffic. With his margin of victory right at a half straightaway, the silver would be awarded to Brian Brown with Kyle Bellm ending his night third.

Racing back and forth with Seth Bergman in the closing laps, Giovanni Scelzi crossed fourth with Bergman fifth.Brad Loyet rolled forward six positions to sixth with Miles Paulus seventh, after having run in the top-five for much of the first half of the race. Jonathan Cornell was eighth, followed by Wayne Johnson. Earning the CP-Carrillo Hard Charger of the race, Johnny Herrera moved up eight spots to round out the top-ten, and also pocketed $400 from Don Long's Searsboro Telephone Co.

A field of 23 drivers was on hand at the Missouri State Fair Speedway. Three Heat Races were also sponsored by Don Long's Searsboro Telephone Co with Giovanni Scelzi, Jonathan Cornell, and Seth Bergman each getting an extra $200 for their Heat Race wins. No B-Feature was contested.

SCOTT ELLERMAN TOPS THE CHARTS IN CO-SANTIONED MASS/PASS RACESAVER SPRINT FEATURE AT WILLIAMS GROVE MECHANICSBURG, PA

By ERIKA PALMAI WAGNER

Scott Ellerman took home quite a bit of hardware Friday night after winning the co-sanctioned Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series/PA Sprint Series Racesaver/IMCA twenty lap feature event at Williams Grove Speedway, as well as the Beer Hill Cup Summer Series championship which was sponsored by the famous Beer Hill Gang. Austin Bishop, Bobby Butler, Jaremi Hanson and Zach Newlin completed the top five.

An astounding forty-five cars came together at the historic Central PA half mile oval, with heat race victories going to Stephanie Dodson, Bobby Butler, Dave Brown and Jaremi Hanson, and two consolation wins going to Colby Dice and Jon Haegele.

The third place starting PA Sprint Series regular took the lead from Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series young gun Bobby Butler on lap five after an exciting battle for the top spot ensued between Ellerman and the two pole sitters Dave Brown and Butler. After taking over command of the top spot, the fight for the lead continued throughout the entire duration of the race with Butler staying within a car length away from Ellerman for the remaining fifteen laps.

“I knew we were going to have to be good on the top in order to be fast tonight, so we worked on the car in the pits after the heat race, and we kind of just threw something at it, and I’ll tell you what, if my front nose didn’t break, I think we could have had that race,” Butler said post-race.

“I heard him behind me, but I just kept on hitting my marks, and holding on to make sure he wouldn’t get by,” Ellerman explained. “We’ve won here before last year, and then one earlier this year at Susquehanna, so it’s a great feeling to be able to win tonight, and on top of that, the Beer Hill Cup! I just want to thank Matt Miller and the Beerhill Gang for sponsoring PASS and for allowing us to have the opportunity to be able to earn a little extra on top of what we already do. It’s great to have the support they give us.”

In the final circuits, fifth place starter Austin Bishop, who was steady running in third, began to catch ground on the top two running cars, looking more and more like another possible contender for the win as the laps counted down. Bishop, who has been a “bridesmaid” more times than one in his rookie season has been persistently eyeing his first career Racesaver/IMCA Sprint Car win, with just recently finishing in second the week before.

“Those first few laps, we had a hard time getting heat in the tire with those cautions, so once we were finally able to run some green flag laps, I started to figure out the line on the top,” Bishop stated. “I saw Bobby and Ellerman fighting up ahead, so I kind of took advantage of that, ran them down, and I took second from Bobby on the bottom, and by the time I looked up, the race was over. I’m defiantly looking for a win here real soon, so we are going to take this finish and what we learned tonight, and bring it to Bridgeport next weekend!”

With a three-race weekend on tap for the PA Sprint Series, many MASS drivers and teams like Dave Brown, Eddie Wagner, Tom Carberry, David Bonner, Scott Frack and Austin Bishop will continue onto Selinsgrove Speedway tonight, and then ending the extended race weekend tomorrow night at Susquehanna Speedway. Next Saturday, the Engler Machine and Tool Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series will return back to New Jersey, at Bridgeport Speedway, for the Mach 1 sponsored event. Teams will have the opportunity to compete for the advertised purse, as well as a bare front axle and nerf bar kit provided to the series by Mach 1 chassis.

Jason Johnson Goes Flag-to-Flag at Red River Valley

Johnson scores third victory; K. Madsen and Stewart complete podium

WEST FARGO, ND - August 19, 2017 - Jason Johnson started on the outside of the front row, took command down the backstretch on the opening circuit and never looked back to score his third win of the season Saturday at Red River Valley Speedway. Johnson survived heavy traffic and multiple restarts to pick up the popular victory. Australian Kerry Madsen and Shane Stewart completed the podium.

Johnson got the jump on pole-sitter Kraig Kinser and established a healthy advantage before a caution for a slowing Jamie Veal on lap four. On the ensuing restart, Dominic Scelzi and Brent Marks took a wild ride on the front stretch. Both drivers were uninjured in the accident.

Stewart got underneath Kraig Kinser for second and began chasing down Johnson as lapped traffic intensified. Kerry Madsen began his charge on the bottom of the racing surface as he surged by both Kinser and Thomas Kennedy to move into third.

Johnson battled with the slower car of David Gravel, allowing Stewart and Madsen to close in. Once Johnson cleared Gravel, he re-extended his lead and drove away from the field for the victory.

"My guys never give up. During the 'Month of Money', the tracks got a little slick and we struggled a bit. But this is my type of race track. Cowboy up," an elated Johnson said upon climbing out of his Priority Aviation, Mesilla Valley Transportation backed No. 41.

"With the World of Outlaws, these guys are so tough night in and night out, to win one of these races speaks magnitudes about this team," Johnson reiterated.

Kerry Madsen praised his team once again after landing on the podium for the second consecutive night. "It was a fun race, bouncing around and driving hard," the hard-nosed Australian said.

Shane Stewart, who is now the new track record holder at the Red River Valley Speedway, came home third after grappling with pesky lapped traffic. "Quick time, which I'm usually not, a new track record, which is cool, and a podium finish. We'll just carry this on to tomorrow and hopefully keep the momentum going," the Bixby, OK native said following his strong, consistent evening.

Kinser and Donny Schatz completed the top five. Tim Kaeding was the KSE Hard Charger. Clyde Knipp scored his first career top-ten with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series with a 9th place finish.

Sunday night the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series concludes a three-race swing through North Dakota in Minot at the Nodak Speedway.

Glenndon Forsythe earns $5,000 in the Pigeon Hills

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA (August 19, 2017) - York, Pennsylvania’s Glenndon Forsythe held off some of the best in the business on Saturday night in the Pigeon Hills, ultimately scoring a first-ever Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions victory in front of a packed house at the “Fabulous” Lincoln Speedway. Moving into the top spot for the first time on lap two, Forsythe led 29 of the 30 circuits to score his $5,000 payday, crossing by the flagstand for the final time with Chad Kemenah and Cory Haas in tow.

“I couldn’t be happier for this team right now,” Glenndon Forsythe said in victory lane. “Tonight was Dynatech Controls Night and they had their company picnic out in the parking lot before the races. Mark, the owner of the company, was here tonight and it was his first time so I’m glad to get this done for him.”

A pair of York natives, Cory Haas and Glenndon Forsythe, led the field to green on Saturday night at the “Fabulous” Lincoln Speedway. Haas got the early jump, soon overtaken by Forsythe as the pair raced through turns one and two on the following lap. Despite a pair of cautions during the first six circuits, Forsythe was able to maintain his command and stretch his advantage to nearly two seconds during certain segments of the first 15 laps.

Forsythe reached traffic for the first time just before the halfway point of the 30-lap main event, continuing to ring the topside of the speedway with Haas following less than one second behind. Danny Dietrich soon entered the picture after charging forward from ninth on the grid. The nearby Gettysburg native moved into third on lap 16, just before caution flags reappeared on lap 17 for Arctic Cat All Star Rookie of the Year contender, Tyler Esh. Esh, who started fourth, raced his way into third by lap seven, but during his later battle with Dietrich in traffic, lost the handle and ended his night upside-down in turn one. Esh walked away unharmed.

Green flag conditions returned to the speedway once again with Forsythe immediately returning to a commanding lead, extending his advantage to nearly two seconds by lap 24 over Haas and “Double-D” Danny Dietrich. Traffic came back into play on lap 25 setting up a three-car battle between Forsythe, Haas and Dietrich. As lapped traffic intensified, so did the battle for the lead. Forsythe continued to pound the cushion leaving the bottom open for Haas and Dietrich, soon joined by defending Arctic Cat All Star champion, Chad Kemenah.

Just as Forsythe took the white flag, caution flags appeared once again, this time setting up a green-white-checkered restart attempt. The first attempt failed as Danny Dietrich spun between turns one and two. The second green-white-checkered restart was a success for Glenndon Forsythe, holding back a final corner lunge by Chad Kemenah and Cory Haas.

“I looked up at the scoreboard at one point and saw that the ‘48’ and the ‘39’ were up there. The ‘39’ was up there the whole time, so I knew he wasn’t a slouch,” Forsythe explained. “To be honest, I was happy to see that yellow come out with just a few laps remaining. Traffic was getting intense and I was starting to fall out of the seat. But this is Lincoln; if you get going well, you’re going to hit traffic. That yellow gave me the break that I needed.”

A visit to Susquehanna Speedway near York Haven on Sunday, August 20, will conclude the Arctic Cat All Star swing through The Keystone State. Honoring the late Justin Snyder, Tony Stewart’s All Stars will take part in the Salute to the Troops program during their visit to the 4/10-mile oval, awarding a $5,000 top prize, as well as $500 to the evening’s fastest qualifier on behalf of Emory Transmissions, and $200 to the evening’s main event hard charger on behalf of Brown & Miller Racing Solutions.

Susquehanna Speedway will open pit gates at 4:30pm on Sunday, August 20. A mandatory drivers meeting will be held at 5:45pm, followed by hot laps at 6:15pm, sharp. Those seeking additional news and notes should visit the speedway live on the Web at www.susquehannaspeedway.net.

About the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions:
All Star Enterprises, LLC, wholly owned by Tony Stewart, d/b/a the All Star Circuit of Champions, is a winged sprint car series. The All-Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Car Series is one of the oldest traveling 410 sprint car organizations and is a staple of grassroots, open-wheel racing. Formed in 1970 by Bud Miller, the series has largely been considered the first 'outlaw' Sprint Car organization of the modern era. After a 10 year stint as owner of the All Stars, Miller passed control of the series to Bert Emick in 1980; a reign that would continue through 2002. Guy Webb then purchased the series from Emick in the summer of 2002 and served as the series President for the next 12 years. Motorsports entrepreneur Tony Stewart agreed to terms with Guy Webb to become the sole owner of the original winged sprint car tour in January of 2015.
