Jimmy Blewett Files Mod Nats 150 Entry

Monday, March 31st, 2008

Involved in a controversial call last year, Blewett returns to take on the strongest entry list in the event’s history. Led by Jeff Pearl, Frank Ruocco, Ted Christopher and Dennis Gada, all looking for their second “150” win, the list includes Matt Hirschman, Kenny Horton, Rob Summers, Jeff Malave and Woody Pitkat.

Rob Janovic Jr., the 2007 track champion, Dennis Charette, ageless Don Fowler and youngsters Jeffrey Paul and Tyler Chadwick join Pearl and Gada on the “home team.”

The $5,000-to-win “150” is the centerpiece of the 10-division Modified Nationals including extra-distance starts for the Speedbowl’s Late Model, Sportsman and Mini Stock divisions. The Northeastern Midget Association, Pro4 Modifieds, AllStar Race Trucks, Allison Legacy Cars and NEMA Lites are also on the agenda.

Coming off a strong performance in Florida, Blewett will be in the limelight
immediately. His 14.233 seconds “150” qualifying record will be the target when SK time trials kick off Saturday (April 12) action. The other divisions will qualify through heats. Saturday’s docket also includes features for the Legends, Pro4s, Trucks, Legacy Cars and NEMA Lites.

The traditional Pit Party puts things in motion on Sunday followed by a 25-lap NEMA feature. A 50-lapper for the Late Models and 30 lappers for the Sportsman
and Mini Stocks precede the “150.”

Waelti Captures First Ever Indoor Midget Event in Amsoil Sandbox Arena at Cedar Lake Speedway!

Monday, March 31st, 2008

Running multiple grooves Darland, Waelti, Bubba Altig and Jerry Coons Jr. pulled away from the field. Four cautions between laps 7-12 slowed the event. Darland and Waelti crossed the line separated by inches at the midway point.

Exiting turn two Waelti drove under Darland for the lead. Waelti’s two car length lead was erased with eight laps remaining when third and fourth place running Coons and Altig came to a stop in turn two. On the restart Waelti and Darland changed grooves with Waelti running the high side and Darland tried several low side passes, coming up two-car lengths short at the finish. Waelti drove the Jim Fiscus/Spike/Ford-Esslinger#7, and was followed by Darland, Aaron Fiscus, fast qualifier David Gough and Nick Lundgreen. The series along with the legends cars and outlaw winged karts will run another complete program Sunday afternoon.

LaMonte, MOPatience earns Shryock a feature win at L A Raceway

Monday, March 31st, 2008

The OReilly Auto Parts United States Modified Touring Series (USMTS) $2,000-to-win feature was nothing short of spectacular. It began with the traditional
four-car-wide salute to fans during the parade lap with the lead cars sporting
American Flags, while spectators heard God Bless America over the loud speaker.
Jason Hughes of Westville, Okla., feature winner at Humbolt Speedway, earned the pole position and led the pack of cars for most of the race. John Allen of Chanute, Kan., feature winner at Junction Motor Speedway, set firmly in second, while Shryock had to move up from sixth place.

Leading isnt always the best place to be, Shryock said. If youre leading,
youre a sitting duck. If a driver is not leading the race they have time to test and find the right groove to run, making them more effective on the track, he explained. The race began to look like it was going to be an easy win for Hughes as cars began to single file around the track until a caution was drawn on lap 11 of the 35-lap feature. When the green flag dropped, Shryock and Jon Tesch of Watertown, S.D., shot past Allen as he fell back to fourth. Shryock began getting closer to Hughes as Hughes was slowing down so he could weave in and out of lap traffic in a safe fashion. With only four laps left, Shryock found the opportunity he was looking for to take the lead from Hughes coming out of turn two.

Shryock said that lap traffic was the main reason he was able to make the car and track work in his favor. He also said Hughes has been really fast this season and being able to run with him has been a pleasure. Shryock picked up his second feature win of the 2008 season, helping him retain his firm lead in the points standing of the Mo-Kan region. Hughes, Tesch, Allen and Johnny Bone Jr. of Pea Ridge, Ark., rounded out the top five finishers. Forty-nine
cars checked in for the modified portion of the race.

In conclusion of the night?s racing events, Shryock made 10-year-old Allison
Houstons week by signing and giving her his feature-win trophy. She said that was pretty cool.

Jacob Everts of Knob Noster picked up the feature win in the hobby stock division and Bryan Arnold of Sedalia in the street stock division. These two classes were run to provide racing fans with a little extra entertainment for their night in the country.

Join L A Raceway Saturday, April 5, as the O’Reilly Winged Outlaw Warrior (WOW) 360 sprints plus 305 sprints take the track at 7:30 p.m. to provide a full night of on the edge-of-your-seat excitement.
