The United States Auto Club.

Haubstadt, Indiana…….Daron Clayton is widely considered to be the master of Tri-State Speedway, and he continued to add to his lore with a dominant victory in Saturday’s 40-lap “Haubstadt Hustler” co-sanctioned by the Midwest Sprint Car Series. The 11th AMSOIL National Sprint Car win of his career was worth $10,000 to the Sikeston, Missouri native.

Local favorite Kyle Cummins got the jump from outside the front-row as Kevin Thomas, Jr. kept pace early and applied pressure after a handful of laps before a red flag on lap seven.

From there, Cummins and Thomas pulled away as the Cullman, Alabama driver, looking to defend his win in last year’s event, moved in on Cummins for the top spot on lap 18. He closed the gap too quickly, though, making contact with Cummins as they entered turn-three and spinning himself around, bringing out the caution.

Clayton, who started 11th, had just moved to the fourth spot before that yellow, and he sat fourth on the restart just before halfway. He disposed of second-running Jerry Coons, Jr. and ran down Cummins, who was about to enter lapped traffic. Cummins narrowly held him off for a few laps before being held up by a slower car in the high line on lap 25, allowing Clayton to cut underneath in turn-four with the lead.

A flurry of late yellows slowed Clayton’s escape from the field, and the July winner at Tri-State, Robert Ballou, was clawing his way up with each restart. He finally restarted in second with just six laps to go, but Clayton couldn’t be touched as he launched off the corner with another popular victory in the Merry Go Round Restaurant – ProGlide Coatings #92 Spike/J&D.

“That was the longest forty laps of my life! It feels awesome to win again here, though. I can’t say enough about the group of people around me, supporting me. This is what we come here to do. I knew we had to be good on a long run tonight and pick off cars when we could. It’s smoking and I’m not sure how much longer it woulda held up, but it was good enough to get it done tonight,” Clayton said.

Ballou came home second in the Blakesley Auto – Hinchman Racing Uniforms #12x Maxim/Ott.

“This is where Daron Clayton is at his best, and we were right there with him. Hats off to him and his guys. I think we may have had a chance at him, but we started to run low on fuel after the last yellow. I hate running second – especially as we’ve been lately. It burns me to run second after you get used to winning,” Ballou said.

Cummins again found himself on the podium after just missing out on his first National win yet again at his home track in the Vincennes University – Greenwell Auto Body #3c Spike/Cummins.

“It was hooked up in the beginning, and I had to mess with lapped cars quite a bit. I started driving harder as I saw some pressure to my inside. I adjusted quite a bit towards the end and felt like I got it better at the end, but I let Robert slip by me for second. I can’t be too upset, but I stand up here behind just one or two guys quite a lot,” Cummins said.

Coons finished a strong fourth in his first night aboard the Gentry Brothers Racing – Automotive Color & Supply #2x DRC/Ott, while Chase Stockon rounded out the top-five in the Superior Tank & Trailer – Crescent Electric Supply #32 DRC/Fisher.

FINAL OPEN WHEEL SPECTACULAR OF THE 2014 SEASON SET FOR GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY SUNDAY

BECHTELSVILLE, PA August 25, 2014 . . . The third and final Open Wheel Spectacular of the season is on tap at the Grandview Speedway this Sunday evening as the Hilborn Tri-State Race Saver Sprint Cars (TSRS) and the wingless midgets of the American Racing Drivers Club (ARDC) return to the high banks of the Grandview Speedway for another double header of open cockpit competition.

Only one driver - Adam Carberry of Bensalem, PA - has been able to claim repeat wins in TSRS action this season. Carberry was the race winner of the first Open Wheel Spectacular in June and recently picked up his second win of 2014 at the Bridgeport Speedway. Karl Freyer, Mike Haggenbottom, Kyle Reinhardt, Dave Brown, Kyle Purks and the winner of the July Open Wheel Spectacular, Jeff Geiges - are all looking to make a return trip to Victory Lane. Carberry raced Tim Tanner for the win in June. Geiges won a three way battle when he took the lead from Haggenbottom with two laps to go. Purks, Haggenbottom and Geiges swapped the positions throughout the final six laps in a race that came right down to the checkered flag at the end of twenty-five laps.

Steve Buckwalter has won both of the ARDC Midget Sunday night feature events. However, it has been the Collegeville, PA driver, “The Phenom” Alex Bright who has been on a streak in recent ARDC action. Bright leads the midget field with five wins, including wins in four of the last five ARDC events. Steve Buckwalter has three wins while Steven Drevicki continues to lead the points in ARDC action with his pair of wins. PJ Gargiulo and Tim Buckwalter each have one win a piece this season.

Both feature events promise twenty-five laps of open wheel action from the green to the checkered and feature the top performers from a series of qualifying events for both divisions of competition.

Fans will have a chance to meet with several competitors before the racing action gets underway on Sunday. The team from Low, Down and Dirty internet radio will present a Meet & Greet to begin at five o’clock near the entrance to the grandstand. Eddie Wagnner and his #70 and Stephanie Stevens and her #20 will be on hand to represent TSRS while 2013 ARDC Champion, Trevor Kobylarz and the R/T Racing #1 and Danny Stratton with the Steward #33 will be on hand to represent ARDC. These drivers will pose for pictures, sign autographs and be available to answer questions before they head back to the pits to prepare for the night’s racing action.

Racing will get the green flag at 7:30 p.m. Adult admission is just $15 while youngsters 6 through 12 pay $5 and kids under 6 are admitted free.

It’s the night before the Labor Day Holiday and a great time to come out and experience the action that everyone is talking about - the Open Wheel Spectacular at the Grandview Speedway.

Filling out the Labor Day weekend at Grandview is the Saturday night tripleheader sponsored by Bernheisel Racing Components and will see the BRC Late Models run in a special 30-lap feature with more than $5,000 worth of special products being shared by all Late Model racers that carry the BRC decals on both sides of the car. The NASCAR 358 Modifieds and Sportsman will also be in action. Just two point events remain in the season before the huge Freedom 76 Classic takes place on Saturday, September 13 and that one pays $25,000 to win and features the best dirt track modified racing talents in the area.

The Saturday night action gets the green at 7:30 p.m. with adults admitted for just $15 while youngsters 12 and under are admitted free.

Additional information on racing at Grandview is available at 610.754.7688 or check in at www.grandviewspeedway.com and Facebook.

RYAN SMITH TOPS LUCAS WOLFE FOR FIRST EVERY 410 SPRINT WIN AS BILLY PAUCH COMES HOME THE MODIFIED FEATURE WINNER IN THE JERSEY RUSH 4

New Egypt, NJ . . . . . . . . .Twenty-six year old Ryan Smith of Kunkletown, PA scored his first career 410 sprint car win Tuesday night in the JERSEY RUSH 4 at the New Egypt Speedway. The event, sponsored by NAPA Auto Parts and Pioneer Pole Buildings, saw Billy Pauch hold off two late race challenges from Jimmy Blewett and Doug Manmiller to win the modified feature. A big crowd turned out for the fourth running of the Jersey RUSH with the final checkered flag falling at 10:25 PM.

Twenty-six sprint cars took part in time trials with Lance Dewease setting fast time with a time of 13.461. Heat race events were sponsored by Lentini Auto Salvage with $200 going to the winners that included Lucas Wolfe, Freddie Rahmer and Davey Sammons.

In the 30 lap Jersey Rush sprint feature, Ryan Smith took the lead at the drop of the green followed by Mark Smith and Freddie Rahmer. Smith quickly established a comfortable lead with JJ Grasso and Lucas Wolfe on the move to the front. On lap ten, the first caution was displayed for Joey Hershey who stopped in turn four. On the restart, Smith now had to contend with Mark Smith and two time Jersey Rush winner JJ Grasso. At the halfway mark, Ryan Smith was on top followed by Mark Smith, JJ Grasso, Freddie Rahmer and Lucas Wolfe.

By lap nineteen, the battle was now between Mark Smith and Grasso for second. On lap twenty-one, Grasso moved into second and began the task of chasing down Ryan Smith.

Following a lap twenty-three restart, Lucas Wolfe made a strong run and advanced to second, passing JJ Grasso going into turn one. With five laps remaining, Wolfe was reeling in Ryan Smith as slower traffic was now making the race very interesting. On lap twenty-seven, Wolfe pulled along-side of Smith but the pass was not going to be completed this time.

Smith pulled a two car length advantage but with two laps remaining, Wolfe was back in the hunt. With the white flag waving, Wolfe took another run for the lead but Ryan Smith was not to be denied his first 410 win and a $5,000 payday. Lucas Wolfe finished second, JJ Grasso third, Kyle Reinhardt was fourth with Freddie Rahmer making up the top five.

The three Lentini Auto Salvage Modified heats were won by Dominick Buffalino, Billy Pauch and Ryan Godown.

In the 30 lap modified feature, Neal Williams set the pace for the first two circuits with Billy Pauch taking the lead on lap three. Williams fought back to try and regain the lead but Pauch held on to the top spot. On lap eight Doug Manmiller moved into second and by lap twelve, Manmiller was challenging Pauch for the lead.

At the halfway point, Pauch and Manmiller were at the front of the pack with Jimmy Blewett third, Williams fourth and Keith Hoffman. On lap eighteen, Blewett moved into second and now it was up to him to take the win away from Pauch. With five laps remaining, the top five was Pauch, Blewett, Manmiller, , Keith Hoffman and Duane Howard.

In the final two closing laps, Blewett caught Pauch and offered several challenges but at the drop of the checkered flag, the $3,000 payoff went to Pauch. Blewett was second with Doug Manmiller third, Keith Hoffman was fourth and Duane Howard fifth.

STEVE BUCKWALTER AND JEFF GEIGES WIN OPEN WHEEL SPECTACULAR FEATURES AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY ON SUNDAY NIGHT

BECHTELSVILLE, PA July 21, 2014. . . The results of the second Open Wheel Spectacular at Grandview Speedway have been written in the record books. While that chapter may be closed, it is not likely that the talk about this racing event will end any time soon.

Race fans saw Steve Buckwalter set a blistering pace on his way to his second consecutive win in American Racing Drivers Club (ARDC) action on the high banks of the Grandview Speedway Sunday night. The Tri-State Race Savers (TSRS) Sprint Car feature saw three different leaders during the final six laps with multiple lead changes on several laps before Jeff Geiges took command and the win.

Current ARDC point leader, Steven Drevicki and Alex Bright led the field of wingless midgets to the green flag with Bright using the outside line to take the lead on lap one. Bright ran and hid from the field as he extended his lead lap after lap. Bright was already reeling in the back of the field by lap eight as Drevicki, Brenden Bright, Tim Buckwalter and Ryan Watt raced in the top five.

But disaster would strike for the young Collegeville, PA driver on lap eleven. Bright was preparing to negotiate his way through lapped traffic when contact was made between the Lightcap Electric #77 and the car driven by Eric Heydenreich. Bright took a wild ride in turn two before coming to rest on the inside of the track. Bright exited the car uninjured but his bid for his third ARDC win of the season ended before the half way mark.

Drevicki took the lead on the restart as Brenden Bright and Tim Buckwalter battled for second in front of Watt. Tim Buckwalter took over second when the pair raced through turn three. Steve Buckwalter slid into third before the half way mark. After a two lap battle with Tim Buckwalter, Steve Buckwalter moved up to second. The caution waved for Tyler Brehm who sat on the infield just off of turn four.

Drevicki now had Steve Buckwalter on his back bumper for the single file restart. Drevicki led through lap fifteen but Buckwalter took the lead for good on the next go round.

Drevicki held off Tim Buckwalter’s challenges to finish second. Brenden Bright followed S. Buckwalter, Drevicki and T. Buckwalter across the finish line with Kyle Lick completing the top five at the checkered.

Jeff Geiges passes Mike Haggenbottom for the win (WoS photo)

Kyle Purks and Rick Stief paced the field of TSRS Sprint Cars to the green flag with Purks quickly exerting his muscle to take the lead.

A red flag brought the racing to a half on the first lap as Scott Frack made hard contact with the wall coming out of turn two before going over. Frack escaped injury but his race ended prematurely on this night. Adam Carberry, the feature winner in the first Sunday night Open Wheel Spectacular, exited the race as a result of wing damage incurred in the same incident. Tim Tanner, who was the TSRS point leader coming into this race, exited under the lap one stop with motor issues.

Purks went into the lead on the complete restart and caught the rear of the field on lap six. Even with lapped traffic to hinder his progress, Purks continued to pull away. With ten laps complete, Jeff Gieges ran in second and began to close the gap on Purks while two time TSRS Champion, Mike Haggenbottom raced in third.

Stef Palmai drew a caution when she ran into problems with seventeen laps complete, setting up a single file restart with just eight laps left to run.

Purks had Geiges, Haggenbottom, Tom Carberry Jr. and Ryan Stillwaggon lined up nose to tail right behind him as he led the field back to green flag racing.

And then things got interesting. Purks led lap eighteen as Geiges took a look to the inside. Haggenbottom took his car to the outside, passed Geiges for second and then took the lead from Purks to lead lap nineteen. Purks came right back to take the lead as the field exited turn two. Haggenbottom was back in front as he and Purks crossed the line on the next lap but the lead changed hands around the speedway. Haggenbottom was scored as the race leader on laps twenty-one through lap twenty-three when Jeff Geiges overtook Purks for second and then passed Haggenbottom for the lead. Haggenbottom fought back and regained the lead momentarily before Geiges took the lead and led the way to the checkered flag.

It was Geiges for the win followed by Haggenbottom, T. Carberry, Purks and Brennflect.

The third Open Wheel Spectacular of the season is set for Sunday, August 31st again featuring the TSRS Sprints and ARDC Midgets. Racing will start at 7:30 p.m.

This Saturday, July 26th, 7:30 p.m. Atlas Paving Corporation of Wayne, NJ will sponsor the night which will feature the Pepsi-Bashore Challenge One-on-One Modified Challenge races along with a full card of NASCAR 358 Modifieds, BRC Late Models and Sportsman stock cars.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CHILLICOTHE, Ohio (Wednesday, June 25, 2014) – Jac Haudenschild lived up to his nickname “The Wild Child” at Atomic Speedway Wednesday night. The Wooster, Ohio driver blasted around Dale Blaney with five laps to go and went on to score the win on night #3 of the 32nd Annual Ohio Sprint Speedweek with the University of Northwestern Ohio All Star Circuit of Champions.

Haudenschild used the concrete wall in turns three and four as a cushion to rim-ride to his second All Star win of 2014. It is his 28th career series victory.

“That was really fun. The track was awesome. The fastest way was around the top. I was running up there pretty high. It was a little easier running second. Dale was definitely fast but I was able to see his line and we got there at the end,” said Haudenschild beside his Destiny Racing/Rick Rogers Construction/Mondak Portables/Triple X Racing/Renegade Rentals/Champion Oil backed machine.

“We’ve been getting better every week and hopefully we can keep it up. The car is feeling good and the guys have worked their tails off,” added Haudenschild.

For Blaney, who came into the night leading the UNOH All Star national and Ohio Region points and the 2014 Ohio Sprint Speedweek points, it was another solid night with a second place finish despite leading the first 25 laps.

“It was my mistake. I moved to the middle there a little bit. It almost felt like it was starting to lock down there in the middle and I probably ran a little too conservative there to try and stay in it. He just got a run on me there and after that he was running pretty hard. My mistake for running a little too easy in one and two and being conservative. The guys gave me a great car and I just brought it home in second. Every night we’ve been really good and put ourselves in a good position and that’s what it takes,” said Blaney beside his Kennedy Cattle/GF1 Chassis/Ti22 Performance/Penske Shocks backed #14K.

Randy Hannagan would battle with Blaney for the runner-up position the final four laps before coming home in third.

“Car came on really good the last 10 laps. I missed that corner that one time that I didn’t need to miss it,” said Hannagan beside his Do-Si-Do/Upper Auto/Kenny’s Components backed #11n. “Ed Neumeister gives me an awesome car and my guys, Kent Karhoff and Jonathan Karhoff work their butts off for me. They make me look good.”

After the 62-car field was whittled down to the final 24 A-main starters it would be Blaney and Sheldon Haudenschild who would bring the field to the green for the 30-lap feature. Blaney would grab the lead over Sheldon Haudenschild, Cole Duncan, Jac Haudenschild, Taylor Ferns, Danny Smith, Randy Hannagan, Brady Bacon and Caleb Griffith. Jac Haudenschild would grab third on lap two.

It didn’t take the leaders long to find heavy lapped traffic by lap five but the action would grind to a halt on lap six when Cale Thomas would blow a right rear tire and get into the front stretch wall, getting upside down. On the restart Blaney pulled away slightly as the son and feather battled for second. Jac would take the runner-up spot on lap eight, bringing Duncan into third with Sheldon, Hannagan, Smith and Shane Stewart in tow.

Blaney would find lapped traffic by the 12th circuit with Haudenschild staying within striking distance while Duncan battled with Hannagan with Sheldon Haudenschild, Smith and Griffith in pursuit. Jimmy Stinson would spin to bring out the caution on lap 14 and once again hand the leaders a clear track. Blaney and Jac Haudenschild would pull away from the field and run nose to tail with Duncan, Hannagan, Sheldon Haudenschild, Smith, Griffith, Stewart and Bacon in tow. Bacon would spin in turn one on lap 21 to once again give the leaders a clean track.

On the restart once again Blaney and Jac Haudenschild were glued together and pulled away while Duncan was battling with Hannagan for third. Jac would execute a perfect slider on Blaney in turns three and four to take the lead with five laps to go when the red flew for a pile-up involving Christopher Bell, Danny Holtgraver and Cory Crabtree. On the restart Jac Haudenschild would continue to blast away at the extreme top edge of the track with Blaney now locked in a battle for second with Hannagan while Sheldon Haudenschild was battling with Griffith for fourth.

Jac Haudenschild would drive to the win with Blaney edging Hannagan for second while Griffith and Sheldon Haudenschild rounded out the top five.
