Accord, NY- Brad Rothaupt Rockets To Victory In Accord Speedway Modified Action
By: Steve Pados, Accord Speedway Media

The Catskill Mountain area of New York offers many spectacular views and exciting things to do for vacationers. However, Fridays are reserved for the exciting action only exciting high level short track racing can provide. The Accord Speedway has been doing just that, giving the loyal racing fans some great racing action when Mother Nature does not rain on their parade. Even though the week long rain created havoc among many in the Northeast, the Palmer Family were able to put Friday evening in the record books with another great roster of driving talent. The loyal fan base went away satisfied they had witnessed another great night of dirt track racing. The evening of speed was sponsored by Powder Tech Powdercoating from Duanesburg, New York. Their website is:

When all was said and done, The "Rhinebeck Rocket" Brad Rothaupt displayed rocket power on his way to his first win of the season in the Insinger Fuels Modifieds. "The Bushkill Bullet" Kyle Rohner got back to his winning ways in capturing his second win of the season in the Arkel Motors Sportsman. Bob Sleight got back on track as he had the hot hand in capturing his first win in the Upstate Auto Pure Stocks. "The Travelin Man" Mick D'Agostino scored his first ever sprint car win in the WRWD Radio NEWS Sprint Cars. "The Angle" Cole Stangle scored his first ever Accord Speedway win in the WRWD Radio Rookie Sportsman. Jeff DeGroat captured another win in the Emmanuel's Marketplace Fireball 4-Cylinder finale at the speedway. Dave Donovan closed the show with an impressive win in the Emmanuel's Marketplace sponsored 4-Cylinder Enduro nitecap.

Rich Ricci III and Brad Rothaupt brought the Insinger Fuels Modified field down for the start of the 30-lap main event. At the drop of the green it was Rothaupt firing out of the blocks and grabbing up the lead and very quickly put plenty of space between he and the rest of the field. At the ten lap mark Rothaupt had a straightaway lead on the field. Finding room to work, defending track champion Danny Tyler moved into the runner-up slot and began to close a bit of distance. Tommy Johnson stayed close to Tyler in third as some of the heavy hitters began to make tracks to the front.

Anthony Perrego moved into contention but a jingling of racers ended his bid for the win even though he rallied at the end of the event. The action was hot and heavy as many drivers tried to punch their ticket into contention. Rothaupt would not be denied on this night as he withstood some late cautions to reign supreme to capture his first win of the season at Accord. Danny Tyler did an excellent job and finished in the runner-up role. Tommy Johnson hustled hard to a third place finish. Rich Ricci Jr was fourth and Danny Creeden finished fifth after starting in the 12th slot. Mike Ricci headed up the second five with the returning Allison Ricci, Joe Judge, Anthony Perrego and Rich Ricci III rounding out the top ten.

In the Arkel Motors Sportsman action, Nick Plumstead hustled into the lead at the drop of the green flag. Plumstead would race to daylight ahead of the field and built up a huge lead. Things would change quickly as the laps clicked off as a couple of cautions and some determined driving brought the defending track champion Kyle Rohner into the runner-up slot. After some hard battling between Plumstead and Rohner, Rohner was able to work his magic and wrest the lead away from the determined Plumstead. . Once in front, Rohner stepped away from the field to cash in on his second win of the season. Plumstead ran an excellent raced to finish second with Chris VanDuser third, Tyler Johnston fourth and Hunter Lapp completing the the top five. Leo Fotopolous headed up the second five followed by Anthony Recchio, Cole Hentschel, the returning Joe Bonetti and Matt Shultz.

Jared Miller led the first two laps of the WRWD Rookie Sportsman main event. He gave way to John Brown who would lead through lap six. Garden Stater Cole Stangle took over the lead on lap seven and was flawless in racing to his first ever win at Accord and his first in full-size division racing. Stangle came out of the Slingshot and Stage One Modified ranks and is right at home in his new division. Brian Durbin was second and a late skirmish at the end juggled the finish with Samantha Muller, Amanda Carson and Joe Coppola completing the top five.

Bob Sleight took the lead on the first lap of the Upstate Auto Pure Stock feature and enjoyed the view to the point where he led all of the way to claim his first win of the season. Sleight was on cruise control early on with Ray Tarantino finishing second, followed by Travis Brockner, Livy Johnson and Jay Smalley. Emerson Cargain headed up the group with Steve Williams, Amber VanOrden and Chris Kanuk following.

The WRWD Radio NEWS Sprint Cars found Mick D'Agostino starting up front and that was all he needed to carve up a huge lead early on and then fight off a last charge by Jeremy Quick to record his first ever win at Accord as well with a Sprint Car. D'Agostino was making his fourth start in the sprinter and the Taunton, Massachusetts traveler looked smooth as silk on his way to victory. Quick was the runner-up with Dan Malley, Corey Wood and Jordan Lawrence completing the top five.

In the Emmanuel's Marketplace Fireball 4-Cylinder event, Willie DeGraw switched rides and would lead the first seven laps of the event. Jeff DeGroat started from twelfth but worked his way forward quickly and found his way into the lead on lap eight. DeGroat would go on to win the event with DeGraw in the runner-up role. Brandon Conklin was third while Ryan Heady and Jesse Torrens would complete the top five.

In the Emmanuel's Marketplace Enduro encounter, Johnny Bankich took the early lead and threatened to run away with the event. Things changed for the worse for Bankich as just before the Midway point, Bankich was turned around by a slower car in deliberate fashion. When the race was restarted, Gene Helms grabbed up the lead for two laps until Dave Donovan zipped by him. Donovan would lead until lap-32 when Richard Smith worked his way into the lead. Smith would lead for a couple of laps until his left front sneaker deflated. Donovan regained the lead and would go on to capture the opening salvo for the Enduro clan. Johnny Bankich was second with Smith limping home in third, James Conklin fourth and CJ Tinnelly completing the top five.


Heat races were run off quickly as Modified heats were captured by Joe Judge, Brad Rothaupt and Danny Tyler. Sportsman heat wins were claimed by Nick Plumstead and Leo Fotopolous. Mick D'Agostino claimed the NEWS Sprint heat win. Rookie Sportsman heats went to John Brown and Jared Miller. Pure Stock heats were captured by Jay Smalley and Ray Tarantino. Fireball heat winners were Dave Donovan and Jerry Kingeter.

The Powder Teach group was on hand for their sponsors night and really enjoyed the show and the fine hospitality offered to them. An interview with track announcer Steve Pados highlighted the many offerings of the company and the bright future ahead for them.

The speedway was once again very racy top to bottom and again kudos to Gary Palmer and staff for offering up a multi-channeled facility.

​For the first time in fifteen years, the Craftsman World of Outlaws Sprint Cars are coming to the Bridgeport Speedway!

When the WoO last raced at the Bridgeport Speedway in 2003, it was Sammy Swindell who took home the win on the lightning fast 5/8th mile track. This time, however, the Outlaws will race on the Design for Vision/Sunglass Central 3/8th mile track at the Bridgeport Speedway on Tuesday, May 22, 2018.

Dave Steele Carb Night Classic


By: Richie Murray - USAC Media

Brownsburg, Indiana.........Dave Steele made most any pavement track his personal playground during the 1990s and 2000s. Yet, no track was more closely associated with the "Man of Steele" than Indianapolis Raceway Park (now known as Lucas Oil Raceway).

It is fitting now that the May 25 "Carb Night Classic" featuring the USAC Silver Crown Champ Car Series will be named after the two-time Silver Crown champion who passed away in a racing crash in 2017.

Steele won 12 combined USAC National Sprint Car, Midget and Silver Crown races at the .686-mile oval between 1997 and 2006. One of those victories was aboard a Silver Crown car back in 1999 on ESPN's Thunder series.

This year's "Dave Steele Carb Night Classic" is expected to fetch the largest field for a pavement Silver Crown in several seasons. Plus, more money is on the line with over $4000 in lap money already pledged for the driver who leads that respective lap of the 100-lap main event. Among the perks are that every Silver Crown driver will have their free pit pass covered for the event. Additionally, the night gets started with a bang with the driver recording fast time set to take home a sweet $1000 bonus.

The largest potential prize is presented for the main event in which an opportunity will be presented to the drivers starting in the first two rows of the Silver Crown 100-lapper. The option will be given to the pole winner first. He or she can elect to start from the tail of the field. If that driver can win the race, the driver will receive a $5000 bonus tacked onto their winnings for the evening. If the pole sitter declines, the option will be presented to the driver starting 2nd, then 3rd and then 4th.

If you would like to sponsor a lap for the "Carb Night Classic," please contact USAC Series Director Levi Jones at

Steele was one of the United States Auto Club's most accomplished drivers during the 1990s and 2000s. The Tampa, Fla. native ranks 14th on USAC's national win list with 60 victories between 1996 and 2007. He was a dominant force on the pavement tracks, which accounted for all 60 of his USAC National wins. Despite only competing in half the races, or less, on the schedule throughout most of his career, Steele's win totals rank in the top echelon of USAC's record book. His 16 Silver Crown wins are the fourth most all-time while his 26 Sprint Car victories rank 16th and his 18 Midget wins put him 35th on the list.

Steele gained a reputation as the man to beat on the pavement, winning a staggering 12 USAC features at Indianapolis Raceway Park (1 Silver Crown, 6 Sprint, 4 Midget and 1 Midget special event) during his career. His first USAC National Midget win came during the "Night Before the 500" at the .686-mile oval in 1998. In 2002, Steele put on one of the most memorable performances in USAC history when he won two National Midget features in one night at IRP. After winning the first feature, Steele started the second event from the 22nd position. Quickly cutting his way through the field, Steele took the lead by lap 12 and, by the end of the 25-lap feature, was $50,000 richer. He remains the most recent driver to win two USAC National Midget points races in a single day.

Steele stands behind only Jack Hewitt, Kody Swanson and Brian Tyler on the USAC Silver Crown career win list. Yet, no driver has led more laps or owns more pavement wins (16) in the series than does Steele.

The accolades for Steele within USAC are nearly endless. He was a two-time winner of the "Turkey Night Grand Prix" at Irwindale (Calif.) Speedway in 2001 and 2003. He was a force on the Indiana high banks, winning eight Sprint features at Winchester Speedway and three times at Salem Speedway. He captured three Silver Crown races at Richmond, Va. in a four-year span between 2002 and 2005. Steele won at least one race in all three of USAC's national divisions in the same season on six occasions (1998, 2001-2005), the most in club history.

Steele was a three-time Tampa Bay Area Racing Association Sprint Car champ in 2005, 2009 and 2013. He also made his way into other racing avenues with the Indy Racing League, where he made three starts in 1998, as well as NASCAR's Busch Grand National Series (now Xfinity Series) in which he made a pair of starts during the 2000 season.

Thus far, through three races on the 2018 USAC Silver Crown calendar, two races have been contested on the pavement. Bobby Santos won the season opener at ISM Raceway in Phoenix, Ariz. over Kody Swanson. In the most recent series event at Toledo (Ohio) Speedway, Swanson turned the tables, winning the main event ahead of Santos. On the dirt, Justin Grant captured his second-career Silver Crown victory, doing so at the Terre Haute (Ind.) Action Track's "Sumar Classic."

The "Dave Steele Carb Night Classic" gets underway on Friday, May 25 at Lucas Oil Raceway in Brownsburg, Ind. The pits open at noon while the grandstands open at 2:45pm. Practice begins at 3pm, with qualifying set for 5pm. Main events for the Pro Mazda and USF2000 series begin at 6pm. The Silver Crown main event is slated for an 8:15pm start.

Tickets can be obtained by calling Track Enterprises at 217-764-3200 or at the gate on raceday. A three-day special Superticket for the full week of Indy including the "Tony Hulman Classic" at the Terre Haute Action Track on Wednesday, May 23, the "Hoosier Hundred" at the Indiana State Fairgrounds on Thursday, May 24 and the "Carb Night Classic" at Lucas Oil Raceway on Friday, May 25 is also available at

Tanner Swanson won the race back in 2015 and repeated in 2016. His older brother Kody Swanson collected the triumph in 2017.

The "Dave Steele Carb Night Classic" will be streamed LIVE on A day later, you can watch it again, on-demand, at www.Loudpedal.TV./
