Hovey wires Out-Pace USRA B-Mods in Friday’s Featherlite Fall Jamboree feature

Thursday, September 27th, 2018

SPRING VALLEY, Minn. (Sept. 21)–Troy Hovey of Castalia, Iowa, took charge on the first lap and never looked back in winning Friday’s Out-Pace USRA B-Mod main event during opening night of the 20th Annual Featherlite Fall Jamboree at the Deer Creek Speedway.

It was the 2013 Out-Pace USRA B-Mod national champion’s first win at ‘The Creek’ since winning the Friday night feature in 2014 at the Jamboree, and he took home $1,000 for his efforts in the Iron Man Challenge event.

Allison, Iowa’s Trevor Fecht chased Hovey for the last half of the race but had to settle for the runner-up paycheck at the conclusion of the 20-lapper.

Polesitter Dustin Steinbrink of Austin returned to the cockpit and garnered a third-place finish while second-generation racer Cory Jones of Zimmerman, Minn., was fourth. His father, Ron Jones, won the USMTS Modified feature at the first Fall Jamboree in 1999.

Iron Man points leader Dan Hovden of Decorah, Iowa, finished fifth while Andrew Schroeder, Ben Moudry, Kadden Kath, Jeremiah Christensen and Jim Chisholm rounded out the top 10.

Sixty-eight drivers saw the green flag Friday night.

Race fans will witness another complete program on Saturday with the winner of the USMTS/USRA Modified main event taking home $10,000. Out-Pace USRA B-Mods will battle for $1,200 to win and 30 drivers will start each main event three-wide.

The pit gate opens at 2 p.m., driver sign-in begins at 3 p.m., grandstand gates open at 4 p.m., the drivers meeting will be held under the hospitality tent in the pit area at 5 p.m., opening ceremonies begin at 5:45 and racing gets underway at 6 p.m. Tickets are $30 or $10 for kids ages 12 and under.

Johnny Scott snags Featherlite Fall Jamboree opener

Thursday, September 27th, 2018

SPRING VALLEY, Minn. (Sept. 21)–The Deer Creek Speedway finally conquered Mother Nature on Friday and Johnny Scott conquered the USMTS main event for the 15th time this season on opening night of the 20th Annual Featherlite Fall Jamboree.

After two days of torrential rainfall wiped out Wednesday and Thursday’s plans, the crew at ‘The Creek’ got the high-banked 3/8-mile clay oval in shape for a fast-paced night of all-out dirt modified mayhem.

While the weather this year has been unpredictable, the performance of Scott has not.

Scott opened the 2018 USMTS campaign back in February by winning the first two Summit USMTS Southern Series features at the South Texas Speedway in Corpus Christi, Texas, and the 28-year-old from Las Cruces, N.M., ended his national championship season by winning the last two races in the USMTS Hunt for the Casey’s Cup.

Starting sixth on the 32-car grid, Scott chased down early leader Brandon Davis in just four laps, and then survived four cautions without breaking a sweat to score a $6,200 victory over his older twin brother, Stormy Scott who started 17th.

Meanwhile, Jake O’Neill earned his paycheck Friday night. O’Neill bounced back from a disqualification in his heat race to snag the third and final transfer spot in the fifth and final Real Racing Wheels “B” Main.

O’Neill rolled off from the 30th starting spot in the 40-lap main event and wound up third at the finish line after passing 27 of the nation’s most talented modified masters.

Rodney Sanders was fourth and Jake Timm rounded out the top five. Defending USMTS national champ Jason Hughes came from 25th to get the sixth spot, R.C. Whitwell was seventh, Brady Gerdes was eighth, Terry Phillips took ninth-place money and Davis rebounded from an early-race pit stop to claim tenth.

Race fans will witness another complete program on Saturday with the winner taking home $10,000. Out-Pace USRA B-Mods will battle for $1,200 to win and 30 drivers will start each main event three-wide.

The pit gate opens at 2 p.m., driver sign-in at the USMTS trailer begins at 3 p.m., grandstand gates open at 4 p.m., the drivers meeting will be held under the hospitality tent in the pit area at 5 p.m., opening ceremonies begin at 5:45 and racing gets underway at 6 p.m. Tickets are $30 or $10 for kids ages 12 and under.

Herrera, Nicholson earn feature wins on Night Two of Hockett/McMillin Memorial F

Thursday, September 27th, 2018

WHEATLAND, Missouri (September 22, 2018) – Veteran Johnny Herrera found his best stride late to pick up Friday night’s Lucas Oil ASCS Winged Sprint Series feature win at the 8th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial.

The win was Herrera’s first of the season, snapping an 80-race winless streak. It came at an ideal time, giving the Albuquerque, New Mexico driver valuable points toward starting position for Saturday night’s $10,000-to-win main event at Lucas Oil Speedway.

The co-headliner in the middle night of the tripleheader of open-wheel racing went to Anthony Nicholson in the POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprint Series.

Results from the first two nights help set the feature lineups for Saturday night’s grand finale. The ASCS Sprints will aim for a $10,000-to-win feature prize with the POWRi WAR winner taking home $3,077 – plus the prestigious Hockett/McMillin trophies.

Gates open at 4 p.m. Saturday with hot laps set for 5:45 and racing at 6:35.

Herrera breaks drought: Johnny Herrera sailed past Jake Bubak with six laps remaining, then drove away to win by about half a straightaway to collect $3,000.

“It was a good race,” Herrera said. “Bubak, he did a great job. I don’t know how he was sticking to the bottom so good. I just kept working and working.

“It’s been almost a year since we got a win,” Herrera added. “We haven’t been good all year, but we’ve been better the last month. We’ve been working harder, just wanting to win again.”

Herrera emerged the winner in an entertaining race with plenty of passing. Second-place Tony Bruce Jr. of Liberal, Kansas, drove from a 13th-starting position and into contention, passing Bubak for the runner-up spot in the final laps.

“We’ve had some terrible runs the last couple of weeks,” Bruce said. “You just have to keep after it. I knew we had a really good car to drive up to the front. We’ll take second.”

Wayne Johnson, who won Thursday’s opening preliminary feature, sprinted away from the pole and led the first four laps. But Matt Covington, the outside front-row starter, made a pass for the lead to complete lap five.

Roger Crockett flipped his car in turn four on the next circuit, bringing out the red flag. The Oklahoma driver, who was battling in the top five, emerged from the crumpled machine under his own power.

Third-running Dylan Westbrook spun on lap nine to bring out a caution, taking him out of contention as Covington and Johnson continued to run 1-2. Covington and Johnson wound up fourth and fifth, respectively.

Herrera began to make progress, driving into the top three by lap 12 and putting himself into position as the race went green the rest of the way.

Nicholson earns POWRi win: Anthony Nicholson of Bartlett, Tennessee took command with six laps to go in a caution-free POWRi WAR Sprints 25-lap feature that had four different leaders. He picked up $1,077.

Nicholson, who started on the pole, passed runner-up Wyatt Burks on lap 19. Burks grabbed the lead on lap 10 and had command until Nicholson’s winning move.

Kyle Cummings wound up in third with Matt Moore fourth and series points leader Riley Kreisel finishing fifth.

“We had a tight car all night and we were still tight in the beginning,” Nicholson said. “It just kind of came to us. As it went away, they slowed down and we were able to get them.

“We really didn’t touch the car all night. We hoped the track came to us, and it did.”

Burks, of Topeka, Kansas, said driving his car too hard probably wound up costing him a chance at the win.

“I just used my brakes up too much at the beginning and I couldn’t drive the car like I wanted to,” Burks said.

Kreisel was contending for a top two finish until the final couple of laps, but slid too high in turns three and fourth to slip back and had to settle for fifth.

Live PD Watch Party: Along with the big night of racing, Lucas Oil Speedway also will play host to a watch party for one of the nation’s hottest television shows.

“Live PD” will be available on televisions throughout the facility and members of the Greene County Sheriff’s Office, including Corporal James Craigmyle and K-9 Lor, will be on hand on the Lucas Oil Speedway midway prior to the races for a meet and greet with fans.

The hit show, which airs on the A&E Network on Friday and Saturday nights from 8-11 p.m., features law enforcement officers from across the country during their nighttime patrols. The Greene County Sheriff’s office has been one of the agencies on the show since March with members like Craigmyle and K-9 Lor, plus Deputy Dustin Kendrick and K-9 Stark, becoming popular among viewers nationwide.

Johnson, Richards earn opening night Hockett/McMillin Memorial feature wins

Thursday, September 27th, 2018

WHEATLAND, Missouri (September 20, 2018) – Wayne Johnson took Thursday’s opening-night headliner at the 8th annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial, leading all 25 laps of the Lucas Oil ASCS Sprint Car feature at Lucas Oil Speedway.

Johnson earned his third national-tour series win of the season, holding off defending Hockett/McMillin Memorial champion and 2018 series leader Sam Hafertepe for the $3,000 win.

In the POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprint feature, Terry Richards picked up the feature victory as drivers in both divisions began the three-night open-wheel crown-jewel event. It pays tribute to Hockett, the sprint-car champ from mid-Missouri who died in a shop accident in 2010 and McMillin, his cousin and crew chief who died in an automobile accident in 2006.

“To be sitting down here in victory lane with (Jesse Hockett’s father) Jack, this is pretty special,” Johnson said. “Jesse and Daniel are looking down and having a hell of a time up there.”

Johnson, of Oklahoma City, set sail from the pole position and set the pace with Hafertepe working his way from seventh to second by lap four.

The two leaders were about to catch lapped traffic when a lap-15 caution flew. Johnson, whose left-rear brake rotor was glowing orange for several laps prior to that, seemed re-energized after the restart and opened a two-second lead by the time another yellow flew with three to go.

That proved no problem as Johnson held on for the win with Hafertepe second and Scott Bogucki third.

“Starting on the front row on a rubbered-down race track made it a little bit easier,” Johnson said. “My guys gave me a hell of a car all night long. We started third in the heat race and won that. When we started sixth in the qualifier and won that, I knew we had a good race car.”

Sammy Swindell and Tyler Blank tangled in turn three of the opening lap, with Swindell backing into the wall. That knocked the veteran, who won the opening two nights of the Hockett/McMillin Memorial a year ago, out of contention.

Richards takes POWRi win: Terry Richards of Denton, Nebraska, held off Kyle Clark on two late-race restarts to earn the opening-night preliminary feature win in the POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprints. Richards picked up $1,077 and valuable points toward Saturday’s feature starting field.

Mario Clouser finished third with Tyler Thomas in fourth as half the entrants took part in night one action. The remaining POWRi cars will be in action on Friday.

“Every time you have a restart with just a couple to go, you feel the pressure,” Richards said of the tense finish. “They’re all back on you. You lost the lead that you had and you lost your rhythm.”

Richards got the jump from his front-row starting position and led the first 10 laps. But Thomas Meseraull, who started seventh, worked his way into second and was putting the pressure on the lead.

Meseraull made a pass at the start-finish line to take the lead to complete lap 11 and the two battled side by side for much of the next three laps. That’s when Richards, using a crossover move in turns three and four, regained the lead.

“If Thomas hadn’t showed me to move up, he’d have drove around me,” Richards said. “Once I started picking up the pace and moved up into the rubber … I didn’t quite realize there was rubber there. A great job by him, he raced me clean. Everybody raced me clean.”

A caution flag on lap 16 bunched things up and Kyle Clark quickly moved into second after the restart and gave chase to Richards with Meseraull third. Another caution three laps from the finish set up a three-car race to the finish.

Richards and Clark were battling it out for the lead taking the white flag when the cars of Ryan Kitchen, Brandon Mattox and Casey Wills tangled on the front stretch to bring out the red flag. Mattox got upside down, but all three drivers climbed out of their cars under their own power.

On the green-white-checkered restart, Meseraull spun in turn one while challenging Clark for second. That sent the California driver from third to the back of the pack, not only costing him a chance at a victory but points toward Saturday night’s feature lineup.

The Lucas Oil ASCS Sprints will again run a full program on Friday to earn points toward Saturday’s big finale, paying $10,000 to the ASCS winner and $3,077 to the final-night POWRi WAR feature winner.

Gates open at 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Hot laps are scheduled for 6:15 p.m. with racing at 7:05 on Friday; hot laps begin at 5:45 with racing at 6:35 on Saturday.

Fires must be in gravel or fire pit-do not burn in grass. Oil dump is located behind the pit concession. Don’t forget to get your limited edition Featherlite Fall Jamboree souvenirs at the USMTS trailer.

Featherlite Trailers is the title sponsor of the Fall Jamboree. The event is also made possible by support from Casey’s General Stores, Midwest Liquidation Contracting, Miner’s Outdoor, MOR Golf & Utility, Orchard Creek Transportation, Red Tail Tackle, Summit Racing Equipment and Wagner Trucking.

Make plans now attend the 21st Annual Featherlite Fall Jamboree, Sept. 18-21, 2019.
