RECORD WRITER: Kyle Larson Wins Nittany Showdown Opening Night
Brad Sweet avoids potential disaster to increase points lead, while Jason Johnson Racing extends its team championship points lead

PORT ROYAL, PA — Oct. 9, 2020 — Refill the ink and turn the page. Kyle Larson added another line to his 2020 book of dirt racing records Friday at Port Royal Speedway.

During the opening night of the Nittany Showdown, the Elk Grove, CA driver won his 11th World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series event in 23 starts and his 40th dirt track event in 80 overall starts this year – which includes a Late Model win at Port Royal in August.

“I would’ve liked to have gotten to 30 (wins). That was probably a more realistic goal,” Larson said with a smirk. “But once we got racing... this is the most I’ve ever raced with Paul. We usually only do 25 to 30 shows. I think with us getting to race more together, days in a row, too, it helped us get into a rhythm. I think that’s why we had such a strong summer.”

Larson didn’t let anyone else have a thought of victory in the 25-lap Feature. He cleared the 26-car field by the exit of Turn 4 on the initial start and extended the rope of time between he and second-place Danny Dietrich each lap. By Lap 5, Larson already had a two second lead on the PA Posse member.

While Larson set sail around the top of the half-mile track, the championship points contenders were hunting for every position they could. Ten-time Series champion Donny Schatz, who started the night setting Quick Time, eventually fell from fifth to seven and David Gravel fell from seventh to eighth. Further behind them, reigning champion Brad Sweet and Logan Schuchart were trying to fight their way forward, starting 15th and 21st, respectively.

Several drivers, including Sweet, were involved in an accident in Turn 4 with 10 laps to go. The wreck resulted and Carson Macedo and Lance Dewease’s nights coming to an end, but Sweet had minimal damage and was able to continue. He made his way back through the field to finish 11th, while Schuchart finished 12th.

By virtue of their finishes, Sweet now leads Schuchart by 40 points for the driver points title. Schatz continues to sit third in points, but is now 62 points behind Sweet, closing in on the championship battle for the second race in a row. Sweet’s Kasey Kahne Racing team did lose points to Gravel’s Jason Johnson Racing team for the team championship title hunt, though. JJR now leads KKR by 14 points.

The Lap 10 wreck was the sole caution of the night, giving Dietrich and third-place Sheldon Haudenschild their best shot at challenging Larson. On the restart, Dietrich tossed his car to the bottom of Turn 1 and pulled even with Larson. However, Larson had the better momentum around the top and launch ahead of him down the backstretch.

Even with lap cars in his way, Larson didn’t let anything slow his march to victory and crossed the finish line having led all 25 laps.

“I felt really good in the (DIRTVision Fast Pass) Dash there. Really really good,” Larson said. “The balance of the car felt different in the Feature. But I felt like I could still maintain good grip off and I could slide lappers and not lose too much momentum. I knew my car was good. It always is. As the race went on, I started to slide more but got a good enough start on the restarts to maintain a decent gap. Awesome car again. Can’t say enough about everyone who works on it.”

Dietrich’s runner-up finish is his best showing in 12 races with the Series this season. It was also the best showing for a PA Posse member. If he or another Posse member is unable to win Saturday night’s $15,000-to-win Nittany Showdown finale, it will be the first time since 2008 that the PA Posse has been shutout of winning in their home territory against the Outlaws.

“He’s (Larson) really good on the restarts,” said Dietrich, of Gettysburg, PA. “Going to the bottom (on the restarts) was not the place to be but it was the only option if you wanted to try and pass him. Just really happy with the car. We made huge improvements from last week.”

Sheldon Haudenschild rounded out the podium – his seventh podium finish in his last 15 World of Outlaws starts.

“To come out of here with a podium is good,” said Haudenschild, of Wooster, OH. “Just building for tomorrow.”

Cap Henry claims Jim and Joanne Ford Classic Opener at Fremont Speedway for $5,000

FREMONT, Ohio (October 9, 2020) - Forced to chase race-long leader and polesitter, Ian Madsen, for the first 26 circuits, it was a true test of patience and persistence for Republic, Ohio’s Cap Henry on Friday evening at Fremont Speedway, and with a little help from slower traffic, the now three-time Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event winner in 2020 was able to sneak by the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports entry and score the Jim and Joanne Ford Classic Opener at the “Track That Action Built” for a $5,000 payday.

“This has been a real good year for us,” Cap Henry explained in Fremont Speedway victory lane, driver of the Lane Racing/Beer Barrel Bourbon/No. 4 sprint car. “My guys keep working on this thing and they keep making it better and better. This thing was a little bit of a handful at times, but I was confident in my team’s decision making. I’m just so proud of this whole race team. Nobody ever gives up. We can say we won another one at Fremont.”

Although a bridesmaid for over half of the non-stop, 35-lap program, Henry, who started third on the feature grid, was in a position to pounce the entire distance, never allowing Madsen to stretch his legs on Fremont’s slick, yet tricky surface. By lap 12, Madsen found himself amongst a gaggle of slower cars, ultimately giving Henry an opportunity to show his nose on lap 14. Despite missing the opportunity to overtake, Henry kept his focus, continuing on without allowing more than one lapped car to separate himself from the leader for the next 14 circuits.

Seemingly in control, Madsen’s reign at the top of the leaderboard would falter on lap 27, as a slower car would hold up the familiar No. 17 allowing Henry to capitalize. With the aforementioned lapped car forcing Madsen to enter turn one off of his preferred line at the bottom of the speedway, the door was open for Henry, eventually driving underneath Madsen before winning a drag race at the exit of turn two.

Forced to settle for fourth at the final checkers, Madsen would also get overtaken by Cole Duncan and Cory Eliason, who battled for much of the 35-lap contest, exchanging third and fourth on six occasions before settling into second and third, respectively. Shane Stewart, who started fourth, would cross the line fifth.

“As soon as we got into traffic, I knew I was going to have to search around to see what we could find to be better than Ian (Madsen),” Henry continued. “Turn two kind made the difference for us tonight. Ian was pretty committed to what he had to do and we were able to get down and get a run.”

Although earning a podium finish, Rudeen Racing’s Cory Eliason still trails Aaron Reutzel, who finished eighth during the Jim and Joanne Ford Classic Opener, by 64 markers entering the season finale on Saturday. Considering Reutzel still has feature provisionals available, the championship is all but settled.

Winner Donny Schatz (Trent Gower Photo)



JUST WHAT HE NEEDED: Donny Schatz claims sixth National Open title, $75K top prize
Jason Johnson Racing takes team points lead and Brad Sweet loses points in the driver title hunt

MECHANICSBURG, PA — Oct. 3, 2020 — Ten-time World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series champion Donny Schatz doesn’t need extra motivation to win.

But when given, especially if given in a callous manor, get ready to write the check. And Williams Grove Speedway did. A big one. The biggest check they’ve even written and the biggest one awarded to a Sprint Car driver this year.

Schatz, of Fargo, ND, won his sixth Champion Racing Oil National Open at this historic half-mile and claimed the $75,000 top prize awarded with it Saturday night.

However, before doing so, he got a little rambunctious with his victory lap and put his CARQUEST #15 into the wall in Turn 3, knocking the steering out of it. All in good fun, though.

“I was probably pretty excited,” Schatz said. “I was trying to wave at them guys in the infield in Turn 3. They told me that I suck before the race started, so I figured that I would remind them that before that race I was the only five-time National Open champion. Now it’s six. Thank you, guys, for the motivation in Turn 3. That’s just what I needed.”

The win is his fifth of the season and 299th of his career.

Getting to it took patience and aggression. Especially with Kyle Larson lurking behind him in the closing laps.

Schatz won his Drydene Heat Race and then finished fourth in the DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash, which was won by David Gravel, who won Friday’s race at Williams Grove in dominating fashion.

Gravel, of Watertown, CT, led every lap Friday night and won my more than two seconds. That made him a favor to earn his three National Open title on Saturday. However, when the green flag unraveled in the air, Logan Schuchart stole the spotlight.

From the outside pole, Schuchart darted ahead of Gravel off Turn 4 and had the Mesillva Valley Transportation #41 cleared before they entered the first corner. Schatz pulled a similar move on Schuchart’s teammate, Jacob Allen, and stole third before the leaders crossed the starting line.

Schuchart, of Hanover, PA, held command out front for the first 11 laps before a caution dampened his chances of winning a National Open title. Gravel kept pace with the Drydene #1S on the restart and stayed close enough down the back stretch to throw a slider underneath it into Turn 3. He cleared Schuchart off the corner and set course for a weekend sweep. Behind him, Schatz took advantage of Schuchart’s wide exit off Turn 4 to sneak by into the runner-up spot.

“I feel like we made the right decision, starting on the outside there (on the restart),” Schuchart said. “There was a little bit more grip in the middle of the racetrack. I felt like if I could hold David (Gravel) down a bit I could get the jump. He kept getting better and better at it (restarts). The more times he got a shot at it we were even out of (Turn) four.”

Gravel was unable to run away with the lead like he had Friday night. Schatz had a rope hooked to the #41 car and pulled himself closer to it every lap. With 19 laps to go, Schatz snuck underneath Gravel into Turn 1 and pulled ahead of him off Turn 2.

From then on, Schatz made it his race to lose. Gravel faded and Schuchart couldn’t make up ground once he got back to second.

Larson was on the hunt, though. With 15 laps to go, he moved into third. With 14 laps to go, he was second. Initially, Larson was unable to cut into the two second gap Schatz had on him. But with five laps to go, he found a surge. The gap between he and Schatz shrunk each corner. He threw everything he had at the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing machine after passing the white flag.

He looked low in Turn 1. Wasn’t enough. He tried going high in Turn 3, nearly pulling even with Schatz through the corner, but the wall and his right rear didn’t get along. Schatz pulled away with the big win, while Larson had to settle for his second runner-up finish in a row at the track.

“I knew Donny (Schatz) was getting to traffic and he’d went to the top in Turns 1 and 2 to get around somebody there earlier and made it work,” Larson said. “I knew he would do that again. I was just hoping that I would be close enough off Turn 4 to be there to get to his inside when he went to the top. Just wasn’t quite close enough and tried just running the top there to do what I could, even though I knew a miracle was going to have to happen.”

Schuchart rounded out the podium, which helped him cut a few points off of Sweet’s championship lead. Sweet, who finished 10th, now leads the driver championship by 38 points over Schuchart in second and by 70 points over Schatz in third.

With Gravel finishing fourth, that moved Jason Johnson Racing to the points lead for the team championship. JJR is currently eight points ahead of Sweet’s Kasey Kahne Racing team with seven races to go.

Schatz admitted 2020 has been one of his worst seasons, coming off an eight season stretch of winning 11 or more races. However, winning the biggest Sprint Car event of 2020 has been a welcomed boost.

“Feels good to win that race,” Schatz said. “We tried something in the Dash. Wasn’t all that great but rebounded. “Scuba” (Crew Chief Steve Swenson) changed the car back. He made the right call and did a great job. We’re standing here.”

USAC SPRINT CHAMP BACON WINS FALL NATIONALS; COURTNEY COMES UP LIGHT

By: Richie Murray - USAC Media

Lawrenceburg, Indiana (October 3, 2020).........For Brady Bacon, it was an unconventional way to celebrate a victory, standing at his hauler with his crew, family and friends by his side as the winner's trophy was presented to him Saturday night at Lawrenceburg Speedway.

Bacon was already cognizant of being crowned the 2020 USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car championship by virtue of, what appeared to be, a second-place finish. Yet, after initial winner Tyler Courtney was found to be 15 pounds underweight during post-race tech inspection, Bacon was elevated to first place while Courtney was repositioned to the 22nd and final position in the results.

Anyway the cookie crumbled for Bacon, he'd take it, especially when it pays $10,000, which he pocketed after emerging victorious in the Fall Nationals all while becoming the 10th driver ever, and the first since Levi Jones in 2011, to win the final race of the USAC National Sprint Car season and the series championship in a single night, which he did aboard the Dynamics, Inc./Fatheadz Eyewear - DriveWFX.com/Triple X/Rider Chevy.

"I saw (Courtney) having some issues at the scales when we weighed, so I figured they were probably quite a ways off," Bacon recalled. "It takes away a little bit of it, but it pays the same, so we'll take it. Obviously, we're very happy to win the championship, first and foremost, but winning the race is icing on the cake. I've only won one other USAC race here and it's the home of the Hoffmans, kind of a local track for them. So, it makes it even more special."

Bacon, who previously won USAC Sprint titles with Hoffman Auto Racing / Dynamics, Inc. in 2014 and 2016, brought home the Ohio-based team's 12th USAC Sprint entrant title Saturday night.

But it was certainly not how Bacon could've drawn it up after a furious hard-fought battle down the stretch with Courtney which resulted in Bacon's second career USAC Sprint win at Lawrenceburg (2015) and becoming just the seventh driver to win the series title at least three times in his career, joining Parnelli Jones (1960-61-62), Larry Dickson (1968-70-75), Sheldon Kinser (1977-81-82), Steve Butler (1986-87-88-90), Robbie Stanley (1991-92-93), Levi Jones (2005-07-09-10-11)

A 30-point lead was the margin Bacon began the night with over Chris Windom while Chase Stockon stood 40 points back in third. Those three were the only mathematically eligible championship contenders going in, and lo and behold, two of them - Bacon and Windom - occupied the front row for the start of the 30-lap feature, the first time since 2003 that the final race of the USAC Sprint season was not held out west.

Bacon had been in this position before as the winner of two previous titles, but he admitted the nerves were still in effect when it came down to crunch time. However, from the eye test, it appeared to be business as usual for the Broken Arrow, Okla. native as the night progressed.

"It's almost more nerve wracking coming into a race having to just not mess up than it is to have to meet a certain bar," Bacon explained. "Once we got through the heat races and stuff, the nerves kind of went away. Once we got the lead, it was just about trying to win the race. I felt like I kind of gave it away there. But obviously, we were able to get it back after the race, unfortunately for (Courtney)."

Bacon grabbed the early advantage on the start from his outside front row starting position, gliding around Windom to lead the opening 13 laps, and it quickly became evident that this wasn't going to be a cruise-around effort for Bacon who, with a finish of 13th or better, would clinch the title regardless of whatever else transpired.

"You don't want to do anything too stupid, but you're here to race and here to win," Bacon adamantly stated. "I might take a little bit less of a chance, but when you can smell the win, it's hard not to go for it."

By the 13th lap, Bacon had built his lead up to three-quarters of a straightaway around the 3/8-mile, high-banked dirt oval, and was working traffic 2.2 seconds ahead of Windom who was clinging to second and withstanding the challenges of Courtney for the runner-up spot.

A yellow on that 13th lap for the stopped car of 21st running Logan Seavey in turn four brought out the first caution period, which bunched up the lead pack, taking the lappers out of the equation for the time being. A one-lap sprint proceeded on the following circuit which Courtney utilized to slide by Windom for second on the bottom of turn four, before clearing him completely for the position in turn two.

With the 13th lap complete, 17th running Mario Clouser came to a halt atop turn three to force another yellow, which closed up Courtney on the tail of Bacon for the restart. Courtney didn't take long to get rolling and powered under Bacon at the exit of turn four on lap 14, pointing the wheels up to the sky at the flag stand in the process.

Shortly thereafter, Courtney's car began to billow smoke, draining water from the radiator lap-after-lap, but showing no ill effects as far as speed. Bacon managed to tighten up the gap on Courtney, however, and with eight to go, Courtney went full sail into turn one, getting out of shape and sideways on entry, a misstep which Bacon used to reclaim his role in the lead.

Bacon, now a 3-time USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car champion, was the victor for the 35th time in his USAC Sprint Car career, moving him into the top-ten all-time alongside Rich Vogler and Jon Stanbrough (David Nearpass Photo)

Two laps later, Courtney had regathered it to track down and drape himself over Bacon's machine for the lead. Using the momentum up top, while Bacon rode the low line, Courtney ripped by Bacon around the outside of turn four to take over the lead for good, in what seemed like the winning pass at the time.

After the victory lane photos were taken and the celebration carried on into the pits, Courtney's car was brought to the scales for the standard post-race technical inspection. Courtney's car was found to weigh 1,360 pounds on the scales, which is 15 pounds under the minimum requirement of 1,375. By rule, Courtney was repositioned to 22nd place and the balance of the field was bumped up one position.

In the final order, Bacon was the victor for the 35th time in his USAC National Sprint Car career, moving him into the top-ten all-time alongside Rich Vogler and Jon Stanbrough. Kevin Thomas Jr. earned a season-best second-place result with Windom third, C.J. Leary fourth and Robert Ballou fifth after starting 19th, which earned him KSE Racing Products Hard Charger honors for the evening. Stockon, a championship contender coming into the night, finished 15th after starting 22nd.

In Fatheadz Eyewear Qualifying, Jake Swanson earned his second career USAC National Sprint Car fast time award which was his first since 2016 at Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway.

FREMONT, Ohio – It was déjà vu for DJ Foos at Fremont Speedway Saturday, Oct. 3. On championship night in 2019, the Fremont, Ohio driver won the feature but fell two points short of claiming the track championship. Fast forward to championship night in 2020. Foos and Nate Dussel came into the night tied atop the track’s 410 sprint point standings. Foos took the lead from Dussel with five laps to go and drove to his second feature win of the season on Fremont Federal Credit Union Night. But Dussel’s qualifying effort and heat race finish coupled with his second place feature finish made him the 2020 Fremont Speedway track champion….by ONE POINT! It was Foos’ 17th career win at the track.

“Last year it was two points so I guess we’re getting closer. Getting points for qualifying and heat races makes this whole deal so tough. Hats off to the Dussel family. They are a good family doing stuff together and we can all look at them and know we can come together as a family and win races and championships. They are very deserving. Nate and I started racing 305s together in 2008…not saying we are rivals but we’ve chased each other up through here. It’s pretty cool for the both of us to be up here. I’m happy for my Burmeister team. I had my hands full for a little bit there. I wouldn’t have caught Nate if it wasn’t for traffic. It was every man for himself tonight. I’m very grateful to be able to drive this car. Hopefully I get to win one of these championships one of these days. I grew up coming here every weekend and I just want to win a Fremont championship,” said Foos beside his Crown Battery,Vantage Branding, Kistler Engines, CR Juices, Berryman Shocks, Burmeister Trophy, The Jet Express, Minor Customs, Napa of Bryan, KS Sales & Service, Keizer Wheels, Dave Story Equipment backed #16.

“For the most part the lapped cars wanted to make that exciting. Man the top was so dominant when they entered the middle and slide to the cushion it was just like sitting and waiting. Congrats to DJ, he put it on us and no one gave him anything. This is a dream come true. My first championship (in 305s) came kind of the same way. I have a ton of respect for DJ and I knew when he got in that 16 it was going to be real tough because they will be consistent. To beat them shows how great of a season we put together. I feel like we were one of the fastest cars every single night here regardless of the track conditions. Hopefully both of us can kick some ass at the Jim Ford Classic next weekend,” said Dussel.

Lindsey, Ohio’s Steve Rando dominated the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 A-main, lapping up to the fifth place car on route to his first win of the season and 12th of his career at the track.

“That’s crazy. I knew I was passing cars and it felt like they were sitting still. I was struggling a little at the end. We started the night in the heat race and it was going pretty good and the last lap entered turn one and blew the radiator out into the motor and cracked the pulleys and everything in the front. Luckily we got it fixed and found out we were starting second and here we are. I want to thank my mom and dad, my girlfriend Olive, Scott that helps me…if it weren’t for him I wouldn’t be able to do this…he’s here every race with me, my Uncle Leroy, Chris, Melissa and all my sponsors,” said Rando beside his Davis Fabricators, North coast Asphalt, North Coast Sealing, Parkmont Retirement Solutions, Garza Construction, Tony and Dawn, Vastag Racing, Attitudes Hair Salon, Loadmaster Trailers, Gressman Powersports backed #19R.

All Fremont, Ohio’s Paul Weaver had to do was start the A-main Saturday to claim the 2020 Fremont Speedway track title for the 305 sprints. Weaver drove from his 7th starting spot to finish second in the A-main, claiming his third track title. Weaver also won the Attica Raceway Park track title and the NAPA of Bryan Attica Fremont Championship Series Presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales championship in 2020.

“When you get older you appreciate track championships more. You don’t know when the last one will be. It’s been a long time since the last championship,” said Weaver who was the track’s 2005 and 2006 champion.

Toledo, Ohio’s Cory McCaughey took the lead with 10 laps to go and drove to his fifth feature win of the season and of his career at Fremont Speedway in the Burmeister Trophy Dirt Trucks. Fostoria’s Shawn Valenti drove from 11th to a second place finish to wrap up his third track title in the division.

“To be on the same win list with everyone that ever raced here is unbelievable. It’s all these people beside me here that makes this happen,” said McCaughey beside his KC Engineering, Ron Miller Race Cars, DAS Motors #911.

For Valenti it’s his second straight track title in the dirt trucks and the third in the past seven years.

“That was a little to close but hats off to Cory and that team. They’ve had a great year and are great competitors and will be a team to deal with for years to come. I want to thank the Babcocks for putting me in this thing and everyone who helps out,” said Valenti.

Cap Henry and Dussel brought the field to green for the 30-lap Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprint feature with Dussel grabbing the lead over Henry, Byron Reed, Foos, TJ Michael, Stuart Brubaker and Craig Mintz. Foos drove into third on lap three. A caution on lap five kept Dussel out of heavy lapped traffic.

Dussel began to pull away when the green appeared while Henry and Foos battled for second with Mintz moving into fourth. By lap 13 Dussel’s lead was 3.7 seconds and he had put two lapped cars between himself and Foos while Mintz moved into fourth just as the caution flew, once again getting Dussel out of very heavy lapped traffic.

On the restart Dussel again built up a sizeable lead, growing it to two seconds over Foos with 12 laps to go. Three laps later and Dussel found himself in very heavy traffic and Foos began to close quickly with Mintz, Henry, Reed, Trey Jacobs and Dean Jacobs (up from 16th) in pursuit.

Dussel slipped over the cushion in turn four with five laps to go while battling in traffic and Foos pounced to take the lead. Foos drove to the victory over Dussel, Mintz, Henry and Reed.

In the 25-lap 305 A-main, rookie Logan Riehl and Rando brought the field to green with Rando quickly taking control. Rando set a torrid pace, lapping cars by the fifth circuit and building a four second lead. Meanwhile seventh starter Weaver had moved into second with Kyle Capodice, Alvin Roepke and Matt Foos giving chase.

With no cautions to slow his pace, Rando lapped cars quickly and when the checkers flew he was on the rear bumper of the fourth place car!. Weaver, Roepke, Foos and Capodice.

Cautions plagued the opening few laps of the dirt truck feature but pole-sitter Dustin Keegan took charge early over Brad Mitten, Curt Inks, Kent Brewer, McCaughey and Paul Brown. McCaughey was able to work into second on lap five with Brewer, Mitten, Austin Black, Jamie Miller and Valenti giving chase.

McCaughey drove to Keegan’s outside on lap 10 to take the top spot while Black, Valenti and Brewer battled for third. Following a caution for debris with four laps to go, Valenti was able to take second but McCaughey made no mistakes and drove to the win over Valenti, Keegan, Black and Brewer.

Fremont Speedway will close it’s season Friday and Saturday, Oct. 9 and 10 as the Ti22 FAST and Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions co-sanction the 13th Annual Jim and Joanne Ford Classic. The 410 sprints battle for $5,000 to win Friday and $10,000 to win Saturday. The 305 sprints and dirt trucks are on the racing card both nights. There will be a band playing in the campground following Saturday’s races and Saturday afternoon race teams and campers are asked to bring goodies for a Halloween camp trick-or-treat.

OPENING ATTACK: David Gravel Wins At Williams Grove In His 600th Start
Brad Sweet gains in driver points but loses in team points to Jason Johnson Racing

MECHANICSBURG, PA — Oct. 2, 2020 — David Gravel made the most of his 600th career World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series start at Williams Grove Speedway Friday night.

He won the opening night of the National Open – his sixth win of the season and second in a row at the historic half-mile – took home the $10,000 check and made big gains for Jason Johnson Racing in the team championship.

His path to victory consisted of a dominate reign out front, leading all 25 laps and crossing the finish line by 2.5 seconds ahead of Kyle Larson.

“I had a couple of close calls,” said Gravel, of Watertown, CT. “I had no idea what kind of lead I had. When I passed a lap car, they poked their nose at me, and I didn’t think that was a very good corner. It was a lot of work up there on the curb. It started getting built up pretty big. I knew I just had to attack, attack, attack. When Kyle (Larson) is behind you, know who you have to run all 25 laps hard.”

Riding the high of his win at Lernerville Speedway last week, Gravel – who already had seven wins at Williams Grove, including his Summer Nationals win in July – showed his strength early by setting Quick Time in his qualifying flight. He then won his Drydene Heat Race and went on to finish second in the DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash behind PA Posse member Freddie Rahmer.

However, the runner-up finish proved to benefit Gravel more than the win did for Rahmer. By starting on the outside pole for the 25-lap Feature, Gravel got the jump on Rahmer at the start and ran away like a thief out of a bank.

In the first five laps of the Feature, Gravel had already pulled ahead of Rahmer by 2.2 seconds. Lap traffic came into play the next lap but had no hinderance on the Mesilla Valley Transportation #41. Keeping his foot to the floor, Gravel gained tenths every lap on Rahmer. And while he pulled away, Rahmer found himself under attack by Larson.

Rahmer and Larson waged war throughout the final half of the race for the runner-up spot. There was no consideration for space between the two cars. Larson closed to Rahmer’s tail tank in the corners, but Rahmer could pull ahead down the straightaways. Then came the dance of slide jobs. Larson would dive underneath him and Rahmer would slide him back. It wasn’t until Lap 23 that Larson finally completed the pass and looked to run down Gravel.

Larson ran out of time to do so, though. He cut about a second off of Gravel's lead in three laps but had to settle for the runner-up spot.

“He (Gravel) was really fast,” Larson said. “He’s been really fast here at Williams Grove no matter what team he’s with. He got a good start there and got the lead and set the pace. He picked off some lappers and didn’t get hung up at all. It didn’t allow us to close on him. I felt really really good. I feel like if I cleared Freddie (Rahmer) the first time I tried I would have been able to run Gravel down.”

Rahmer – the current track points leader at Williams Grove – rounded out the podium. The PA Posse has now lost eight straight Series races in Pennsylvania to the Outlaws.

“The big part of the race is trying to get the lead on the start, and I didn’t get a good start,” Rahmer said. “I didn’t bring them around at a fast-enough pace for how our car fired off. And he got through lap cars better than us. I didn’t think Larson was that much better than I was. We were running each other pretty hard. He just got by me at the end.”

With Gravel’s win tonight, and points leader Brad Sweet finishing 11th, Jason Johnson Racing is now only four points behind Sweet’s Kasey Kahne Racing team for the team championship points lead.

For the driver championship, Sweet was able to gain points again on Logan Schuchart, who finished 17th. Sweet now holds a 52-point lead over Schuchart and a 90-point lead over 10-time Series champion Donny Schatz, who sits third in points.

Tomorrow, Gravel will compete for his third National Open title at Williams Grove and the illustrious $75,000 top prize.

“It’s all about putting yourself in position,” Gravel said. “You’re not going to win every time from the front row, but you like your chances.”

RIGHT PLACE & TIME: Lady Luck Favors David Gravel at Commonwealth Clash
Logan Schuchart and Jason Johnson Racing close in on their championship battles

SARVER, PA — Sept. 26, 2020 — Running second, more than six seconds behind the leader, with two laps to go, was the perfect spot for David Gravel.

His hopes of curing the hunger for another win went from being unattainable to nearly guaranteed with the sound of a pop Saturday night at Lernerville Speedway.

Sheldon Haudenschild, who was in his own world as the leader, lapping up into the top-15 around the 4/10-mile track, blew a tire with two laps to go. His strangle hold on the lead was released and fell to Gravel.

After a month of failing to return to Victory Lane with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series, Gravel found a golden horseshoe in Pennsylvania and made the most of the opportunity handed to him. He led the final two laps and parked the Jason Johnson Racing #41 in Victory Lane at Lernerville for the second time in two years – his fourth career win at the track.

“Sheldon was the class of the field,” said Gravel, of Watertown, CT. “If he didn’t blow a tire, I would’ve run second. But a little bit of racing luck got us the win tonight. I don’t know where Sheldon was running, but I’m guessing he was running aggressive on the top and ran a torrid pace.”

Gravel didn’t feel like the team unloaded well at the start of the night, qualifying third in his flight. However, that sentiment changed after he won his Drydene Heat Race.

“The Heat Race, we had a really really good race car,” Gravel said. “Then we drew a seven (in the DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash draw). I didn’t get too upset because 35 laps here, this is one of the best racing tracks we go to. There’s always lanes to run three wide. That’s why it’s one of my favorite places to go to.”

Gravel started sixth in the 35-lap Feature and quietly made his way up through the field, while Haudenschild set a blistering pace as the leader. He went from sixth to fifth on the initial start but found himself stuck there for the first 18 laps. After moving his wing back, Gravel found traction and speed.

By Lap 19 he was fourth. By Lap 25 he was third. And by Lap 30 he was second. However, with five laps remaining, his chance of a win was out of the question. Haudenschild, coming off a hometown win in Ohio from the night before, made himself untouchable. After taking the lead on the first lap, he pinned his NOS Energy Drink #17 car to the top of the track and found a level of speed others couldn’t.

James McFadden ran second for the majority of the event, before getting passed by Gravel, and only saw Haudenschild for a handful of laps before he was a blur that disappeared in traffic.

Then everything changed with a pop. Haudenschild brought out the first caution of the night with two laps to go as he limped to the infield work area with a deflated right rear tire.

When the race resumed, Gravel pulled ahead of McFadden and ran away with the $10,000 Commonwealth Clash victory – his fifth Series win of 2020. McFadden finished second and Daryn Pittman rounded out the podium. Haudenschild was able to make it back on track and salvage a 13th place finish.

For McFadden, the runner-up finish is his second podium in three races behind the wheel of the Karavan Trailers #9 car.

“We were actually really really good there on the last restart,” said McFadden, of Warrnambool, VIC, Australia. “I started struggling there the last five or eight laps. Whatever happened on that last restart, must have built up air pressure in the tires or something, and started to feel really good again. Hats off to David (Gravel). He doesn’t make many mistakes.”

This week marked Pittman’s first time driving for Heffner Racing in 2020. In three World of Outlaws races, so far, they’ve improved each time. He finished 14th in the Red Robins #72 car at Plymouth Speedway on Thursday. Then finished 10th at Wayne County Speedway the next night. And then third at Lernerville.

“We’re tickled to death,” said Pittman, of Owasso, OK. “That’s a win for us in our first week together in five straight nights. First off, I have to thank Kale (Kahne) and Heath (Moyle) for the amount of work that they put in. Man, we’re ready for a day off tomorrow, I can tell you that, and there’s no better way to finish it up with a solid run like we had here tonight.”

Logan Schuchart put a small stop to the bleeding in his championship hunt by finishing fourth at Lernerville. Points leader Brad Sweet had gained 36 points on Schuchart the two previous nights but lost four points to him after finishing sixth Saturday night.

With nine races remaining this season, five drivers are still in contention for the driver championship and six teams are in contention for the team championship. Sweet leads Schuchart by 40 points for the driver title and his Kasey Kahne Racing team leads Gravel’s Jason Johnson Racing team by 26 points for the team title.

While the crown wouldn’t be for him, Gravel is committed to delivering a championship for JJR.

“Hopefully we’re going to get hot here and finish the season strong,” Gravel said. “We’re in contention to win this points championship, so we’re going to keep fighting until the last race.”
