Grain Valley, MO - In what was an eventful POWRi Lucas Oil National and West Midget League feature event at Valley Speedway, Ace McCarthy had to fend off several challenges as he wired the field for his second career POWRi victory. McCarthy's Valley Speedway victory was his first driving for Dave Mac Motorsports.

Taking the early lead from polesitter Zach Daum after going three-wide into turn three, McCarthy took control of the 30-lap feature event coming out of turn four to lead lap one. Enduring several cautions early, McCarthy consistently pulled away from the field on the restarts as the field jockeyed for position on back.

The biggest threat to McCarthy's momentum occurred with nine laps in, as Ethan Mitchell spun a 360 in turn four while running third, Amber Balcean flipped wildly through turn four bringing out the open red. Returning to racing, McCarthy switched from running the ledge all the way around to rolling the bottom in one and two, while continuing to rip the lip in three and four.

All the while as McCarthy remained out front, the top three jockeyed for position with Michael Buddy Kofoid eventually working the third position away from Zach Daum. Coming down to the final turn, second running Daison Pursley threw everything he had with a slider into three, but McCarthy powered on to victory. Pursley tied his career-best finish of second with Kofoid completing the podium. Cannon McIntosh and Andrew Felker rounded out the top five.

"Towards the end we started getting pretty tight in three and four and I was just trying not to mess that up," commented Ace McCarthy. "There's a little rut up there and I was just trying to stay in it and get that drive off. I knew if I kept it down in one and two, Daison wouldn't get around me. He was definitely putting some pressure on me. That's where I won here last year. On the bottom in one and two and the top in three and four. You just had to be patient and get in easy in three. Cody Cordell, Robby, and Matt gave me a great car tonight. I can't thank Dave Mac enough for giving me a car to drive."

"Congrats to Ace and Dave Mac Motorsports," said Daison Pursley. "It was a good race there. I wish we wouldn't have had that red. I would have ran the bottom and tried to pass him, but we had the red flag and had the opportunity for Cody to tell Ace we were running the bottom down there.

"I knew the bottom at the last half was basically the place to be in one and two," stated Michael Buddy Kofoid. "I could run it so good, and honestly, I think I was better that first and second on the bottom. We were about even on the top in three and four. Towards the end, I saw some guys rolling the bottom, so I moved down there and caught them. The track just made it tough to gain any ground. I think if we actually got third in that heat race, it would have helped us. But I don't know what the deal was there. I think one spot in the heat race could have made the difference, but we'll come back here tomorrow and try to be two spots better."

Winner Michael 'Buddy' Kofoid (Danny Clum Photo)



Humboldt, KS (7/11/2020) - In what was an action-packed 30-lap feature event at Humboldt Speedway between the POWRi Lucas Oil National and West Midget Leagues, Michael "Buddy" Kofoid claimed the checkers over Kaylee Bryson and Daison Pursley for a Keith Kunz/Curb-Agajanian Motorsports podium sweep. Kofoid's Humboldt Speedway victory is his fourth POWRi win of 2020.

Sharing the front row with Zach Daum, polesitter Chance Morton pounced to an early lead over Daum and Kaylee Bryson. But before the action could heat up, the yellow was displayed for Cade Cowles in turns one and two. Coming back to green, Morton rocketed on the start, only for the red to stop the action, as Noah Gass took a tumble down the backstretch.

Returning to racing, the red would come out again as Jesse Love took flight in turns one and two. As the field returned to racing, a blanket could be thrown over the top four, as Morton narrowly led a cluster of cars including Daum, Bryson, and Kofoid. Exiting turn two, Bryson took the second position from Daum as Morton started to fall back.

By the fifth lap, Bryson overcame Morton for the top position as Daum took over second. Near midway, Kofoid had closed enough to steal the lead from Bryson. Even as Kofoid encountered lap traffic, it wasn't enough to give Bryson any advantage as Bryson was forced to settle for second. Coming out of four and to the line for the final time, Daison Pursley narrowly edged Zach Daum for third. Sam Johnson completed the top five.

It should also be noted that Bryson's second-place finish places her in the record books alongside Holly Shelton and Holley Hollan as another highest-finishing female in the POWRi National Midget competition.

"It was really just a matter of who ran it the hardest," commented Michael Buddy Kofoid. "It ended up rougher than what we thought, but it wasn't as evil in the center as some of the others. Hat's off to our whole crew on tonight. Big thank you to Keith Kunz Motorsports and Toyota, I'm really excited, and even more so, now, for tomorrow night."

"Buddy's good; he's a great teammate," said Kaylee Bryson. "I'm just getting my laps in. I want to win so bad and really hope it's one of these next races. I'm learning every time I get in this car."

"It's always good to finish third on the podium to my teammates," stated Daison Pursley. "There's top-notch stuff here. The race track was good and the cars kept getting better and better. It was pretty tricky here tonight, so I wasn't expecting that. It kind of got cowboy up there at the beginning of the race and then smoothed out to the top. I'm really looking forward to carrying this momentum into Valley Speedway tomorrow."

Trey Gropp Claims First POWRi Lucas Oil West Midget League Victory

Garden City, KS. (07/04/2020) Wrapping up night two of the 5th Annual Midget Roundup for the POWRi Lucas Oil West Midget League at Airport Raceway, where 25 midgets battle it out to find the fastest way to victory lane. After 30 trips around the fastest 1/6-mile dirt oval in Kansas, Gropp would use the high line to perfection, to capture his first ever POWRi Lucas Oil West Midget League Win.

Trey Gropp found himself on fire all night. Picking up a heat race win early in the night would set him up well for the feature event. Starting in the fourth position for the 30-lap feature, Gropp found himself taking the green and settling into the third-place position. Robert Dalby and Cannon Mcintosh battled for the top two positions, while Gropp followed behind in third. The leader, Robert Dalby, hit lapped traffic and found himself battling for position on track. McIntosh tried to sneak by Dalby in turns 3&4 while he still found himself battling with lapped traffic. All while Gropp goes four in the fluff to take the lead coming out of turn 4. Gropp will lead lap 10 as a caution came out.

Gropp still leading, McIntosh followed behind in the second position, they took the green flag and made contact in the corner, which caused them both to lose some ground. Gropp and Mcintosh broke away from the rest of the field with 15 laps completed. Gropp stood his ground and rode the top side to claim his first POWRi Lucas Oil West Midget League Victory.

"I just can't believe I held him off." Exclaimed Gropp. "This is the first win with MSW, it's pretty special. I just needed to hold on and don't miss my marks"

McIntosh Scores Victory back in his Family Owned Car for Night #1 of the 5th Annual Midget Roundup.

Garden City, KS. (07/03/2020) Cannon McIntosh, hops back in his family owned #08 for the weekend with POWRi Lucas Oil West Midget League, and finds himself in victory lane. At the fastest 1/6- mile dirt oval in Kansas, all eyes were glued on the front-runners battling for the top positions. After losing the lead to Trey Gropp, McIntosh regrouped and found himself back in victory lane for the third time this season with the POWRi Midget Leagues.

Cannon McIntosh in the #08 lead the field to green flag competition, with the #2 of Bob Harr to his outside. McIntosh takes the early lead on the top side, while Bob Harr, Tristin Thomas, Robert Dalby, and Trey Gropp are fighting for positions 2-4. The #43 slows on the front stretch bringing out the caution. Once racing resumed on the racetrack, McIntosh would once again stretch his lead over the field. Gropp took over second place position from the #28 of Thomas.

McIntosh endured heavy lapped traffic ahead of him, which caused the #00 of Trey Gropp to reel him in. As McIntosh battled with a lapped car on the top side, Gropp took the bottom side of the racetrack and found himself taking over the lead. Gropp lead a lap, then gets into the back of a lapped car causing his motor to slow. McIntosh regained the lead and found himself back in victory lane for the third time this season. Followed by second place runner, Trey Gropp and rounding out your top three, Robert Dalby.

"Gropp got by me there, and I just wasn't driving hard enough. I was way tight, I just started working hard through traffic and I got back by him. I just needed to drive the car harder" Stated McIntosh. "It's cool that when Keith and the team aren't racing, I can come down here and we can put something together and go win."

"I followed the lapped car into the corner, and I caught him with the right front. The engine actually died, but somehow I kept it running." Stated second place finisher, Trey Gropp after his career best POWRi finish.

"We struggled coming off of turn two, the motor was spitting and sputtering. I have to go through and look at a couple of things, but otherwise, not a bad night." Stated third place finisher, Robert Dalby.
