Kevin Thomas, Jr. Takes Opening Night of Sunshine State Midget Challenge

Ocala, FL - Kevin Thomas, Jr. claimed the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League's opening night at Bubba Raceway Park in the inaugural Sunshine State Midget Challenge. Thomas, Jr.'s Florida victory was his second career with POWRi, his first coming back in 2015.

With the initial start called back, the actual start saw Tanner Thorson leading lap one, only to relinquish the lead to Thomas, Jr. down the backstretch. The following lap the action slowed for Holly Hollan spun entering turn three. Returning to green Thorson pressured Thomas, Jr. to no avail. With ten laps down the yellow flew again for Hollan, this time for a flat left rear tire on her machine.

Coming back to green flag racing, Thomas, Jr. checked out and put distance between himself and Thorson. On lap 20, the caution was displayed as Chad Boat came to a stop. Boat returned to the pits and was done for the evening. Retuning to green flag racing with 10 laps to go, Thorson hung right there with Thomas, Jr. But, with 27 laps completed, Thorson suffered a mechanical failure entering turn one, ending his night and leaving a three-lap shootout. In a dash to the finish, Thomas, Jr. led Ryan Robinson and Tucker Klaasmeyer to the checkered.

"Good job to everybody on the track crew," commented Kevin Thomas, Jr. "They made a pretty good racetrack. Me and Tanner had a pretty good battle there. Once he kind of showed me that the top was coming in, I was just getting too slow there on the bottom in three and four. I've got to thank Scott Petry and the whole crew over here. They gave me a great racetrack. That was a fun race. I haven't won a midget race in quite a while."

"I just can't thank Abreu Vineyards, Keith, Pete, Big Al and the whole team that works on these enough," said Ryan Robinson. "We didn't have a whole lot for them tonight, but we're going to work on this and be up front tomorrow night. This is a really cool racetrack to run on. It's my first time here and I love it already. The difference between one and two and three and four, you've got to figure it out as a driver. It's a real technical track."

"It took quite a while to figure it out," stated Tucker Klaasmeyer. "It's really tricky at both ends. It's probably one of the trickier tracks I've been to. It feels like a small quarter mile at one end and a big three-eighths mile at the other. It was a lot of fun and a good first run in Keith's car."

TEENAGER ANTHONY PAYNE, FROM 24TH, AVOIDS WRECKS TO WIN FIRST EVER THREE QUARTER MIDGET FEATURE ON OPENING NIGHT OF ALBANY INDOOR AUTO RACING SERIES, STEVE SVANDA CALIMS SLINGSHOT CO-FEATURE; BONSIGNORE TAKES POINTS LEAD INTO SATURDAY SEASON FINALE; FIVE SLINGSHOT RACERS STILL IN TITLE CONTENTION

ALBANY, NY February 9, 2018 . . . Second generation driver Anthony Payne started 24th in Friday night’s Indoor Auto Racing Series Presented By VP Racing Fuels 40-lap feature and with his father Joey Payne, Sr. looking on, won his first career (TQ) Three Quarter Midget feature in a thrilling conclusion to a wild event.

Payne took the lead with nine laps left in the feature after Andy Jankowiak and Erick Rudolph tangled on a restart while running side by side heading into the first turn. Payne, who had been third, managed to miss the crashing pair by inches even as half a dozen drivers behind him piled into the wreckage.

“This is amazing, I can’t even put it into words,” Payne said, his voice choked with emotion. My mother and father, I thank them for making it all possible. Unbelievable.”

Payne struggled to make it into the A-Main. His crew completely changed the set up on the car and it showed in the B-Main which he qualified from.

Then in the feature, Payne’s forward progress was relentless.

Still, it was his accident avoidance skills that carried the day. Two crashes in the first ten laps of the race involved eight and ten cars respectively, all of them in front of Payne. He then missed the leader’s tangle with nine to go, then held off Matt Janisch to prevail.

Janisch, who went to the rear of the field for involvement in one of the multi-car crashes, rallied to finish second in Roger Mahan’s entry with pole starter Tim Nye finishing third. Matt Roselli authored one of the best finishes of his long Indoor Auto Racing Series career by taking fourth with Briggs Tanner, who was in the midst of three accidents, placing fifth after apparent fifth place finisher Tony DiMattia, a teammate of Payne’s, was disqualified for weighing in light at the end of the event.

Jankowiak, who was the leader for most of the race prior to his fateful collision with Rudolph, rallied for sixth trailed by Series point’s leader Justin Bonsignore, Jonathan Reid, Ryan Bartlett and Timmy Catalano.

The 20-lap Slingshot feature was won by Steve Svanda of Allentown, Pa., who started up front and held off Joe Toth Upper Makefield, Pa., in a race-long battle for the win.

“It’s my first win in a Slingshot Indoor race and it’s amazing. I could retire right now and be happy,” Svanda declared. “Thanks to Joe Toth, who was right behind me and ran me clean.”

Toth, in turn, ran second the whole way but had Kyle Herve, Dan Morgiewicz and Chris Kurtz on his tail at various times in the race. Morgiewicz ended up third with Kurtz slotting in fourth and Danny Buccafusca checkering in fifth.

Thirty-two TQ Midgets took time trials with Tim Buckwalter (6.824 sec.) shading Earl Paules (6.871), Danner (6.674), Keith Rocco (6.949), and Scott Kreutter (6.952).

Four TQ Midget 10-lap qualifiers were taken by Tim Nye over Buckwalter, by Tommy Catalano ahead of Earl Paules, by Jankowiak besting Danner and by Reid, vanquishing Mike Lichty. The only major accident in the heat races occurred with a tangle involving Keith Rocco, Lichty and Marc Johnson, whose car climbed the first turn wall and flipped. He was not hurt.

A pair of 12-lap TQ Midget B-Mains went to Scott Kreutter over Matt Roselli and by Tyler Thompson ahead of Keith Rocco.

Three Slingshot eight lap Slingshot heat races were won by Steve Svanda over Kyle Herve, by Dan Morgiewicz ahead of Austin Silfee and by Joe Toth who superseded Nick DelCampo.

The 12-lap Slingshot B-Main verdict was earned by Kurt Bettler.

Racing continues tomorrow, Saturday, Feb. 10 at the Times Union Center with TQ Midgets and Slingshots running full programs for the second straight night joined for Day Two by the Champ Karts.

The Indoor Auto Racing Series Fueled By VP Racing Fuels 2018 TQ Midget and Slingshot championships will be determined Saturday.

After the results from Friday’s TQ and Slingshot features were tabulated, Bonsignore’s seventh place finish enabled him to open a 55 point margin over 14th place finisher Erick Rudolph and a 67 point bulge over race runner-up Janisch heading into the TQ Midget Saturday finale.

Bonsignore can clinch the 2018 Indoor Auto Racing Series Presented By VP Racing Fuels championship with an 11th place finish in the finale even if Rudolph were to win the main event.

In the Slingshots, Cody Kline leads Kyle Herve by four points, Danny Buccafusca by six, Kurt Bettler by ten and Joe Toth by 13. The five contenders are expected to battle down to the final lap of the Saturday Slingshot feature to settle the 2018 Slingshot championship

TQ Midget Feature (40 Laps): 1. Anthony Payne, 2. Matt Janisch, 3. Tim Nye, 4. Matt Roselli, 5. Briggs Danner 6. Andy Jankowiak, 7. Justin Bonsignore, 8. Jonathan Reid, 9. Ryan Bartlett, 10. Timmy Catalano, 11. Ronnie Flaim, 12. Keith Rocco, 13. Ryan Tidman, 14. Erick Rudolph, 15. Chad Jones, 16. Anthony Sesely, 17. Tommy Catalano, 18. Tyler Thompson, 19. Andrew Molleur, 20.

Sheldon Haudenschild Thrills Capacity Crowd for First Career Outlaw Win on Opening Night of 40th Anniversary Season

BARBERVILLE, FL - Feb. 9, 2018 -Sheldon Haudenschild passed race-long leader Paul McMahan on a Lap 27 restart to win his first career World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series Feature in thrilling fashion at the DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park. Haudenschild, in his first Outlaw start with the Stenhouse Jr.-Marshall Racing No.17, assumed the runner-up position with three laps remaining after Ian Madsen caught the rut in turn one and landed on his side. The 2017 Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year muscled his way underneath McMahan, who was nursing a flat tire, on the restart and never looked back for a popular victory in front of the standing room only crowd. McMahan held on for second with Shane Stewart completing the podium.

McMahan won the Craftsman Club Dash, earning him the pole on the opening night of the 2018 World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series 40th Anniversary Season alongside Madsen. McMahan, in search of his first Outlaw win since 2015, was strong all night and led the opening lap before a Red Flag for David Gravel and Tim Shaffer halted the action. Gravel and Shaffer were both uninjured, but the accident scene took some time to clean up, providing the first Open Red of the 2018 Season.

When action resumed, McMahan continued to show the way in his new ride for 2018, the Tom Buch 13. McMahan navigated traffic masterfully and survived another restart with 11 to go as Madsen threatened to take the lead.

With three laps remaining Madsen bounced hard in the looming rut in turn one and lost the handle of the KCP Racing No.18. That was all that Sheldon Haudenschild needed. Haudenschild pounced on McMahan down the backstretch, overtook the veteran and went on to win by 1.418 seconds.

“That was the plan. I saw [McMahan] had a tire going down. I wanted to square the car up and get underneath him on the backstretch,” an elated Haudenschild said in Victory Lane. “This team works incredibly hard. I can’t thank Stenhouse Jr.-Marshall and NOS Energy enough,” Sheldon added.

Obviously disappointed, McMahan also referenced his flat tire but credited Haudenschild for driving a great race. Stewart, who failed to qualify for last night’s All-Star Feature, was pleased with his team’s rebound effort. “I’ll take a podium finish on the first night. That is way better than we have been here in the past,” Stewart said with a smile.

Donny Schatz maintained his DIRTcar Nationals points lead coming from 14th to fourth with California’s Cory Eliason coming home an impressive fifth.

A DIRTcar Nationals event high 35 cars signed into action with Logan Schuchart setting fast time with a blistering lap of 12.975. Brent Marks scored the KSE Hard Charger Award coming from 25th to finish in the top ten.

Action resumes tomorrow at the DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park. As always, you can catch all the action from DIRTcar Nationals and the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series 40th Anniversary Season on DIRTVision.com.

Donny Schatz goes two-for-two with the All Stars at Volusia Speedway Park

BARBERVILLE, Fla. (February 8, 2018) - For the second time in as many days, Fargo, North Dakota’s Donny Schatz is an Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event winner, officially sweeping All Star Circuit of Champions competition at Volusia Speedway Park during the 47th Annual DIRTcar Nationals.

Schatz’s route to victory on Thursday evening was just as impressive as the night before, ultimately diminishing a near-straightaway lead held by Chad Kemenah at the midpoint of the 30-lap program. The rally earned the now 18-time All Star winner another $5,000 payday, crossing under the final checkers by a margin of victory equaling 2.439 seconds over Kemenah and Kasey Kahne Racing’s Brad Sweet.

“We had an awesome race car,” said Donny Schatz, pilot of the Tony Stewart-Curb/Agajanian Racing, Textron Off Road-backed, No. 15. “It’s good to have Rick [Warner] here with us tonight. It feels good to have the entire team together. We are definitely hitting on all eight cylinders right now.”

Schatz started from the pole position and led the first eight circuits before feeling any pressure from those racing behind him. Kemenah, who started fourth on the main event grid, worked his way to the back bumper of the defending World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series champion, eventually driving underneath Schatz as the pair battled through turns one and two on lap nine.

Even with lapped traffic starting to intensify, Kemenah powered to a commanding lead, jumping ahead by a near-straightaway advantage as the leaders raced passed the crossed flags. As the laps clicked down, Schatz started to come back to life, diminishing Kemenah’s advantage in traffic to less than a second by lap 22. By lap 25, Schatz was back in command, utilizing the topside of the speedway to cruise around Kemenah as the pair raced through turns one and two.

From that point forward, it was all Donny Schatz, rapidly gaining an advantage through traffic that stretched to nearly three seconds when the final checkers flew. Kemenah held on to finish second, followed by Brad Sweet, David Gravel, and Kyle Larson.

“I really didn’t know what to expect with the track. I was trying to play it cautious,” Schatz explained, who was weary about the reworked racing surface. “I didn’t want to go to the top until I knew it was going to hold me. I got to traffic and really couldn’t move around and that’s when [Chad Kemenah] got by us. By that time, I knew I had to bide my time and be patient with what the track was going to do. We ended up getting him back in traffic and that’s what it takes; being able to race through traffic like that. It definitely helped to be close to the front tonight.”

“Sometimes leading isn’t the place to be, I guess,” Chad Kemenah said, pilot of the Hunter Racing, Bonnell’s Rod Shop, No. 10H. “When you have to get beat by [Donny Schatz] it makes things a little bit better. The way I got around him was the same way I got beat. I just thought I had nothing to lose. I could see that he was hung up behind the lapped cars and I kinda held my breath and ended up getting around him. But when you get to traffic, you have to pick and choose the right lanes. Somebody that is that good behind you is probably going to pick the lane that you’re not in.”

“I had a good feeling before I left home,” Schatz continued. “My trainer said I was in ‘ass kickin’ mode’ so I want to thank him for that.”

The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will not return to competition until Friday, April 6, when the Series invades Atomic Speedway in Chillicothe, Ohio. “America’s Series” last visited the southern Ohio highbanks on August 26 with the “Buckeye Bullet” Dave Blaney picking up the $10,000 top prize. It was Blaney’s first-ever All Star victory at Atomic Speedway, ultimately raising his Series win total to 48 since first visiting victory lane in 1983.

Donny Schatz charges from 12th to win at Volusia Speedway Park

DIRTcar Nationals action continues later today

BARBERVILLE, Fla. (February 8, 2018) - Mounting an impressive hard charge to the front, Fargo, North Dakota’s Donny Schatz led the final nine circuits on Wednesday evening to claim $5,000 during the opening night of the sprint car segment of the 47th Annual DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park.

The victory, Schatz’s eighth during Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 competition at the Barberville half-mile, occurred in fantastic fashion, advancing forward from 12th on the feature grid during a non-stop 30-lapper to cross under the final checkers 1.079 seconds ahead of Kasey Kahne Racing's Brad Sweet and CJB Motorsports’ David Gravel.

“These guys did a great job,” Schatz explained, pilot of the Textron Off Road, Ford Performance-backed, No. 15. “This team has been strong for a long time. It feels good to get that first win out of the way. We wish Rick [Warner] could be here tonight. Maybe at the end of the week he will be. He does so much for this race team. We’re glad to get it done for him tonight.”

Wasting little time, Schatz advanced into a top-five position as early as lap nine, soon challenging six-time and defending All Star champion, Chad Kemenah, and Brad Sweet for the point position. The defending World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series champion solidified the runner-up spot by lap 13, then setting his focus on race leader, Brad Sweet, who led all but one lap during the first 21 circuits of the 30-lap program. Schatz made his first official bid for the top spot on lap 22 and made it stick, ultimately driving underneath Sweet at the entrance of turn one and surviving a drag race down the backstretch and into the entrance of turn three.

“I don’t know that we got as close as it looked,” Schatz explained. “It may have looked close to the fans, but Brad [Sweet] and I had a few city blocks between us. The track locked down and I didn’t really expect it to lock down that quick. If I would have been in a different position when it did lock down, I would have been in trouble. I was really struggling at the end. It’s just the way some days are. The dynamics of the dirt are always changing.”

“When the track gets rubber like that, when you get caught one lane out it feels like ice, but if you are in the groove then it feels like there are spikes in your tires. Unfortunately, I slipped out of the groove and it cost us,” Brad Sweet explained. “We got better and better and better every time we hit the track tonight. This is a new team with a new crew chief. We were searching around a little bit trying to find the perfect balance for this Napa Auto Parts, No. 49 car.”

The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will conclude their 2018 Florida invasion with a second and final appearance at Volusia Speedway Park on February 8, wrapping up the two-day All Star segment of the five-day sprint car stretch of the 47th Annual DIRTcar Nationals. Thursday’s start will raise the All Star appearance total to 88 at the Barberville, Fla., venue continuing a tradition that dates back to February 15, 1983.

Volusia Speedway Park will open pit gates at 10 a.m. on Thursday, February 8. A mandatory drivers meeting will be conducted at 5 p.m. followed by engine heat at 5:30 p.m., sharp. Those seeking additional news and notes should visit DIRTcar Nationals live on the Web at www.dirtcarnationals.com.
