American Racing Tires has posted $1,000 which will go to four drivers that are not fortunate enough to make the Rogers Memorial. The names of all non-qualifiers will be in a drawing with four lucky drivers getting $250 each.

QUEEN CREEK, AZ – Donny Schatz started 12th and passed Shane Stewart on a Lap 20 restart to score his first career victory at Arizona Speedway Saturday Night in front of a standing room only crowd. It was Schatz, who was the fourth and final driver to lead a lap in the Feature, fourth win of the season as he extended his early season points lead in his quest for his tenth Series Championship.

California native Cory Eliason continued to show impressive speed winning the Craftsman Club Dash and leading the opening lap of the 30 lap Arizona Desert Shootout. That lead was short-lived, however, as Sheldon Haudenschild slid in front of the Roth Motorsports No.83 to lead the second circuit. Haudenschild, who entered the evening second in points and tied with Schatz with three wins, appeared to be the man to beat, extending his lead to a sizeable margin through lapped traffic.

A Lap 13 caution bunched the field together and Haudenschild extended the lead once again. The move of the restart, which proved to be crucial at the race’s end, was Donny Schatz powering from eighth to third on the bottom off of turn four.

Lap 16 saw disaster strike for Sheldon as the thin cushion in turn four got the better of the young Wooster, OH native. It was the second time in the young 2018 campaign that Haudenschild has brought out the yellow while leading. Unlike at Tulare, this time there was no damage to the NOS Energy Drink No.17 machine and he was able to restart at the rear of the field.

Sheldon’s misfortune moved Shane Stewart, who advanced forward from his fifth starting position, to the point. By Lap 20, when the thin cushion claimed two more victims – Brad Sweet and Brian Brown, Schatz had worked by Joey Saldana for the runner-up position and was ready to pounce on the next restart. Pounce he did, as Schatz shot underneath Stewart and led down the backstretch only to have the pass negated by another caution. That set up a single-file restart and Stewart went to the bottom entering turn one, only to see Schatz, this time on the outside of the speedway, roll by him down the backstretch once again. In an attempt to get the lead back from Schatz, Stewart allowed Saldana to regain the runner-up spot.

A pair of late race restarts allowed the field to have a crack at Schatz and Saldana had the crowd holding their breath with two to go as he narrowed the gap to three car-lengths. A valiant effort was not meant to be for the “Brownsburg Bullet” as he finished 0.821 seconds behind the Tony Stewart Racing No.15.

Schatz first order of business in Victory Lane was to express his thoughts to the Humboldt Broncos community following their hockey team’s tragic accident Friday evening. Additionally, the Tony Stewart Racing No.15 team had a little bit of a different look in the pit area tonight. “We were minus the backbone of our team tonight, Scuba broke his ankle at Bakersfield and is on the couch for a while,” Schatz explained.

“We’ve won in Arizona before, but not at this place. My race car was awesome all over the race track tonight, a true testament to my team’s excellence,” the Fargo, ND native said. When asked about the multitude of late-race restarts, Schatz chuckled and said, “I’m getting older and the older I get, the more patient I am.” It was Schatz’s 265th World of Outlaws victory in his illustrious career.

Saldana, who finished fourth last outing at Bakersfield, was pleased with his car speed once again. “Kevin Rudeen gives us a great car, with great equipment. We have everything we need to succeed and it’s starting to show. Hopefully we can win one of these soon, we’ve been real close the last two weeks.”

“It’s hard to win these races and it’s hard to win against guys like Donny Schatz. When you can finish on the front stretch, it’s a solid night,” Saldana added.

The KSE Hard Charger award went to Logan Schuchart, who charged from 16th to finish third. “What an improvement that was from our Qualifying effort. I can’t thank my guys enough. Our team never gives up,” a pleased Schuchart said.

Stewart settled for a fourth-place finish, his third straight top-five outing with Eliason rounding out the top five. Despite spinning past the halfway point of the race, Sheldon Haudenschild charged back to finish seventh at the checkered flag.

The World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series heads to the Midwest next week with a date at the Jacksonville Speedway in Illinois on Friday, April 13th before heading to Haubstadt, IN the following night to compete at the Tri-State Speedway.

SANTOS GOES BACK-TO-BACK IN PHOENIX SILVER CROWN OPENER

By: Richie Murray - USAC Media

Phoenix, Arizona....April 6-7, 2018 - Each year, it seems the ongoing tug-of-war for pavement supremacy on the USAC Silver Crown Champ Car circuit is waged between Bobby Santos and Kody Swanson.

In the 2018 season opener, the duo once again picked up right where they left off in a memorable stop at the tri-oval of ISM Raceway where the two fought tooth-and-nail during a side-by-side battle that lasted two laps at speeds nearing 150mph with both never turning a single wheel in the wrong spot.

Although the starring roles remained unaltered on this day, a plot twist had Santos trying to overcome a turbulent beginning in which he dropped to the tail of the field following an early-race pit stop.

Santos' precision was downright surgical as he rose up the scoring pylon, ultimately surging ahead on the inside of Swanson on lap 80, then rocketed away during the final laps to score his second-straight "Phoenix Copper Cup" victory.

Santos, of Franklin, Mass., became the first to capture a Phoenix Silver Crown victory in consecutive years since Dave Steele won five in a row between 2002 and 2006, something that doesn't stray too far from Santos' mind when he competes here in the Valley of the Sun.

"It's right up there," Santos exclaimed. "To win back-to-back is really cool. Although, for a minute there, I didn't expect to be sitting here. We had a good car all day today, but we kind of missed (the setup) at the start of the race. This means a lot. One of my idols is Dave Steele. He owned this place. I feel like he's pushing me a little bit."

Santos' early trouble commenced as he pushed up the racetrack between turns one and two on multiple occasions early in the going, dropping him from his second starting position to 10th by lap ten. Following a caution for a Kyle Robbins turn one spin on lap 17, Santos' crew chief and father, Bob, made the decision to pull him into pit lane for a few adjustments that seemed to do the trick.

Although Santos would have his work cut out for him, restarting 16th on the lap 22 restart with quite a few heavy-hitters serving as the rabbits that Santos would have to chase down, including a strong Kyle Hamilton who led a race-high 54 laps, plus Chris Windom, Swanson, David Byrne and Justin Grant. Meanwhile, Santos was lurking just behind in sixth by the midway point.

On lap 53, Windom got caught behind the lapped car of Breidinger toward the end of the back stretch. Windom dove low, flat lining his momentum while Swanson and Byrne chose the high road to cruise past them all to take second and third, respectively.

On lap 66, Hamilton was seemingly in control in his first series start since the 2015 season. Yet, exiting turn four, the pack freight-trained him on the inside as Hamilton slowed dramatically, eventually coming to a rest on the back stretch to prompt a yellow flag.

Thirty laps remained on the restart, leaving a full-out sprint to the finish. Running fourth, Santos quickly disposed of Windom on lap 73 with an inside move in turn three. Two laps later, Santos said adios to Byrne as he bagged second with just a quarter of the race remaining.

Patience was not in the cards at this moment as Santos immediately caught Swanson and pressurized the three-time series champ, putting them nose-to-tail just inches apart. Santos then dove to the inside of Swanson moments later, engaging in a full two-lap, clean, Ben Hur-style wheel-to-wheel war that Santos emerged victorious with on lap 80.

"Racing side-by-side at a place like this is really cool and lot of fun," Santos explained. "You never know what (Kody) has left. Last year, Kody made a late-race charge and, in another couple laps, he could've beat us. I had that in the back of my mind that, at that point, I needed to get past him and get away from him. Racing here, I've never had to try so hard and be so up-on-the-wheel for 100 laps. Ten years ago, I used to ride for 50 and race for 50. Now we're racing for 100."

From there, Santos had but a few lappers to overcome as a cloud of attrition cast itself over a few of the front runners in the final laps, including Windom and Byrne. But that cloud dissipated for Santos over the 100-miler, as he pulled away for a commanding victory over Swanson, Grant, Eric Gordon and hard charger/top Rookie finisher Cody Gerhardt.

Brady Bacon was the class of the field on Saturday night for this first career victory at the Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track. (Vince Vellella/ASCS)


Brady Bacon Victorious With Lucas Oil ASCS At Texas Motor Speedway

FT. WORTH, Texas (April 7, 2018).. Making his first trip to Victory Lane at the Texas Motor Speedway, Oklahoma's Brady Bacon notched his 14th career win with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by Sawblade.com at Tony Stewart presents the Vankor Texas Sprint Car Nationals.

"This was great to race here this weekend. I'm from Oklahoma originally but I don't get to race down here close to home very much so this was special having my parents and some of my life-long friends here. I just wish my wife could and kids could have been here but I'm sure they were watching," stated Brady on his win in the Sawblade.com No. 28x.

Having to thrash on the car after the Heat Race due to a failed Steering system, it left little time to focus on setup, but nevertheless, Brady tore through the field from seventh to pick up the win.

"We had to change the steering gear, pump, box, just everything but these guys busted their butts and got us back out there," explained Brady. "I just have to thank James Cooper for the opportunity to run his car and thankfully we were able to put it all together and get the win. It's always good to get one this early in the year."

Three attempts at the green as a false start was followed by a red for Wayne Johnson, who was unharmed after flipping off the second turn, the chase was on at the front of the field as Sam Hafertepe, Jr. led the way over Tony Stewart and Seth Bergman.

Quickly into slower traffic, things went awry in an instant for Hafertepe while working Lap 7 as evasive action to avoid a crash was not enough. Going over another driver's right rear tire, the No. 15h flipped into the turn-four wall. Sam was unharmed but unable to continue.

Avoiding the crash, Tony Stewart positioned his Rush Truck Center No. 14 at the front of the lineup. Steadily pulling away after the restart, traffic came into the picture just after the 10th lap. Working past Seth Bergman for the runner-up spot, traffic would play to the advantage of Brady Bacon as the No. 28x blasted into the lead on Lap 13.

Caution on Lap 15 as a line came apart on the power-steering of Bergman's No. 23, the restart put Sammy Swindell in the mix with Tony Stewart as Bacon turned up the heat. Steadily pulling away, the race for second went to Swindell as Stewart slowed with mechanical issues on Lap 21 that sent the No. 14 to the Pits.

Remaining under green the remainder of the race, Brady Bacon ran to the checkered flag 2.171 seconds ahead of Sammy Swindell with Johnny Herrera coming up to round out the podium in the Mesilla Valley Transportation No. 45x. Racing through the first B-Feature, Travis Rilat stormed ahead 13 positions to earn the CP-Carrillo Hard Charger of the Night with Brandon Hanks crossing fifth.

From 18th, Skylar Gee rolled to sixth with Jamie Ball also making moves on the field from 16th to seventh as Derek Hagar crossed eighth. From 21st, Robbie Price found good speed to finish ninth with Roger Crockett completing the top-ten.

Another field of 35 drivers made the call for the second night of Tony Stewart presents the Vankor Texas Sprint Car Nationals. Heat Race wins went to Brady Bacon, Christopher Bell, Brandon Hanks, and Johnny Herrera. B-Features were topped by Matt Covington and Skylar Gee. One Regional Provisional was used by Alex Sewell.

Up next of the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by Sawblade.com is three new tracks for the National Tour with Paducah International Raceway in Paducah, Ky. on April 27, followed by Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Penn. on May 4, and Selinsgrove Speedway in Selinsgrove, Penn. on May 5.

More Wet Weather Forces Postponement of New Egypt Speedway Opening Weekend

New Egypt, NJ – New Egypt Speedway has been forced to postpone its opening weekend scheduled for Friday and Saturday April 6th and 7th due to the facility grounds still being wet from the winter.

“It’s the same scenario as last weekend, we need three our four dry days in a row to get it where we can work on the race track so that it is safe for our competitors. We don’t want to see anyone tear anything up this early in the season”, said New Egypt Speedways Joey Liquori. “So far the forecast looks good for next week so we will try it again.”

The free-to-the-public Open Practice session has been rescheduled for Thursday night April 12th. Pit gates will open at 3PM for inspection and practice will run from 5-9PM. Any racecar that is New Jersey legal is welcome to take part in the practice session. Pit Admission will be $25.

Then on Saturday night April 14th New Egypt Speedway will fire-off its 21st Season as a dirt track when Oliver Communications Group presents the return of the Modifieds who will compete in a 40-Lap, $2,750 to win, Double Points affair along with the Mid Atlantic 305 Sprint Cars, Hammer Sportsman, Street Stocks, 4-Cylinders and Lyons Construction/Metal Fab Rookie Sportsman.

Pit Gates will open at 3PM on April 7th, Spectator Gates will open at 4PM, Hot-Laps will hit the speedway at 5PM and the first green-flag of 2018 is scheduled to fly at 6PM. Admission to the grandstand is $22 for adults, $20 for seniors 65 and older, $10 for teens 12-15, $10 for military personal and their spouses with ID, and Kids 11 & Under are FREE. Pit admission is $30 with a New Egypt Speedway license and $40 with no license.

New Egypt Speedway is located on Route 539 in New Egypt, NJ just minutes from Six Flags Great Adventure and the New Jersey Turnpike. A racy 7/16-mile D-shaped dirt oval, New Egypt Speedway serves Garden State race fans with some of the best competition in the country.
