Six different winners cruise into victory lane at I-35 Speedway!

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

Winston Mo.-Thats right I said six. The Midwest Lightning Sprints joined the action tonight for AIS night at I-35 Speedway. Six new drivers tasted victory lane tonight as 92 cars packed the pits. The final checkered flag fell at 10:36p.m.

Tonight was a little different as we started out with the IMCA Stock Cars. Thomas Roberts (Kidder) became the first driver to win in two classes this season as he picked up his first win in the Stock Cars. Roberts had a great battle to the end with Bruce Fair and Dean Wray. Fair (Trenton) finished a season best second place followed by Gene Stigall (Winston), Bennie Turner (Smithville) and Josh Steele (St. Joseph). Steele went from tenth to fifth to win the hard charger.

Mike Taylor Jr. (Kansas City) pulled his 11T hotrod into victory lane for the first time in 2012 picking up the win in the “Border War” Grand National division. Taylor had to hold off the likes of three time feature winner Bud Wilson (Trenton), two time feature winner Jason Anderson (Kansas City), former track champion Travis Walker (Cameron) and Rick Steele (St. Joseph). Bud Wilson went from ninth to second to win the hard charger.

Tom Brown (Lincoln, Nebraska) led wire to wire in the Midwest Lightning Sprints tonight as they had a green to checkered run. Brown was followed by Bobby Layne (Kansas City), Ken Billings (Kansas City), M.K. Billings (Kansas City) and Travis
Alexander.

Clint Baker (Meadville) held off a hard running Randy Ainsworth at the line to win his first IMCA SportMod feature of the season. Ainsworth (Excelsior Springs) the feature winner from last week gave Baker a look on the inside as they came out of four but Baker was able to hold him off. Mike Tanner (Kansas City) finished third, Brad Whitney (Trenton) was fourth and the winner of the extra cash donated by A To Z Billboards, and fifth went to Casey Schroff (Bethany). Dustin Miller had a long drive from twenty-fourth to eighth for the hard charger.

Lee Farmer (Bethany) pulled out his “Gravedigger” car and pulled out the win in the IMCA Hobby Stocks. Farmer was on a mission tonight as he drove the wheels off his car and pick up his second win in two nights, his first this season at I-35. Scott Treadwell (Trenton) had another impressive run in second, Billie Hoover (Stewartsville) finally shaking those mechanical woes finished third, Alex Anderson (Trenton) had a great run in fourth and Desmond Theel (Belton) with his best run came home fifth. Farmer went from seventh to first to win the hard charger.

“Mr. Excitement” Jim Cameron (Cameron) picked up his first win of the season in the IMCA Modifieds. Cameron took the lead on lap two and set sail on the field. Cory Wray (Jamesport) finally had a good run finishing second and had a few shots at
Cameron on restarts but Cameron was not going to be denied. Buz Kaster (Kansas City) was third in only his second start of the season, JJ Baumli (Lathrop) had a good run in fourth and last weeks winner Hunter Marriott (Brookfield) was fifth. Jeff Marriott went from nineteenth to sixth to win the hard charger.

Next week is CARB night at I-35 Speedway all CARB members receive free admission to the grandstands. As the degrees begin to climb so does the racing action at I-35 Speedway!

Free mulligan if entered by June 10 for World Modified Dirt Track Championship

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

SPRING VALLEY, Minn. – The dates for the 2nd Annual World Modified Dirt Track Championship presented by Hanson Tire Service are approaching fast, and the faster that drivers get their entry forms submitted the more cash they can keep in
their pocket.

Somebody is leaving the Land of 10,000 Lakes with a $20,000 paycheck on Saturday, July 28, and last year more than 100 of the world’s best open-wheel dirt modified drivers added their name to the list of one-armed bandits staking claim to the
prize.

The Deer Creek Speedway in Spring Valley, Minn., will host the second annual World Modified Dirt Track Championship presented by Hanson Tire Service on Wednesday-Saturday, July 25-28, with a whopping $20,000 going to the winner and each
of the 30 main event qualifiers pocketing a minimum $1,500.

Drivers may register to qualify on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday, but may also purchase a “mulligan” that allows them to attempt to qualify on Friday if their first night on Wednesday or Thursday does not turn out as hoped. The cost of a
mulligan is $100, but drivers that pre-enter by June 10 will get their priceless mulligan free of charge.

The entry fee is $250 if received by June 10 (includes free mulligan). After that date, the entry fee is $300 if received on or before July 1. The entry fee is $350 if received after July 1 but on or before July 24, and the entry fee is $400 if
received after July 24 or at the gate on race day. After June 10, mulligans are an additional $100 and must be included with the completed entry form. The entry form is available for download at www.usmts.com/Documents/entry_20120725-28.pdf online.

Group time trials with a green-white-checkered format will be staged each of the three days, along with heat races and main events with drivers earning points for their performances in each. The top-6 points earners each day will earn one of 18 guaranteed starting spots in Saturday’s $20,000-to-win championship main event, with the highest overall points earner during the three days of qualifying garnering the pole for the big dance.

Saturday’s program will feature an “alphabet soup” of main events that will culminate with a 31-car starting field in the championship race. Even if a driver has some tough luck during qualifying on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday, he or she still has the chance to climb the ladder of main events on Saturday to earn a spot in the finale.

The 31st starting spot will be auctioned off prior to the start of the race, with the lowest bid starting at $2,000. Of that amount, $1,500 goes to that driver for that finishing spot while all additional money raised during the auction will be spread out among the drivers finishing 10th through 30th.

Nearly $100,000 has been earmarked for Saturday’s championship main event alone, with a total purse of more than $160,000 posted for the four-day extravaganza.

This year, officials will limit the number of entries on Wednesday and Thursday to the first 50 registered drivers on a first-come, first-served basis. Drivers may register to qualify on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday, but drivers qualifying on Wednesday or Thursday who purchased a mulligan will be able to qualify again on Friday if they elect to use their mulligan.
