Gustin Wins First Lucas Oil MLRA Feature

Sunday, June 30th, 2013

Greenwood, NE – With less than 10 total starts in Lucas Oil MLRA competition, Ryan Gustin was poised to knock down a series win sooner rather than later. To those who have watched him race up the ranks, his Friday night performance in the Alphabet Soup feature, at I-80 Speedway, comes as no surprise. Gustin passed four cars, in his heat race, to earn the KRC Top Qualifier Award. However, he led only the opening lap before Tommy Weder Jr. got around him in the feature. Weder led the next 10 circuits, before Gustin passed him for good.

“I knew we had a good car right off the bat,” stated Gustin. “Once we got going, kind of reined him (Weder) back down and got in lapped traffic and used that to our advantage. I just tried not to look back.” The pass for the win came on the twelfth lap and Gustin explained his simple approach. “I was really good on the bottom down there in three and four. So you could really drive it in hard and all that moisture would catch you. I just drove ‘er in there wide open.”

The race went caution free until Brunson Behning spun on lap 33 causing a slowdown. The final three lap shootout reaffirmed the speed Gustin had in his race car. It also allowed Chris Simpson a shot at Tony Jackson Jr, for third, which he took by feet, at the line.

Gustin’s win gives him an automatic provisional in next month’s 3rd Annual Silver Dollar Nationals paying $27,000 to win. Friday’s Alphabet Soup checkers was worth $3,700. Tomorrow the Lucas Oil MLRA will make their one and only visit of the season to Adams County Speedway in Corning, IA for the Liberty 50. It will pay the winner $5,000.

Blowers Hot, McMahan Takes Career First Win

Sunday, June 30th, 2013

Lansing, MN–Mother Nature again tried in vain to end the race program early at Chateau Raceway. Rain fell just before the start of the USRA Modified feature, but it ended quickly and the program ran to its entirety. S&S Auto Salvage, Hormel Foods and Wrad’s Wrags and Awards sponsored the evening’s program.

The Y-Waste Removal Hornets got the feature events underway with six cars they were back to a feature event only show. Alan Schmidt won his first main event with Chris Schumann and Jeremy Wenzel close behind in second and third.

A pair of rookie drivers Anna Brouwers and Zach Elward led the Misgen Auto Parts Pure Stocks to the green flag. Brouwers gave the field a scare when she spun in turn one, but somehow the entire field missed her and the green flag stayed out.

Jason Newkirk led the race until Cole Lonergan snuck past Stacy Krohnberg after they made contact for second. Lonergan would drive to the lead on lap 12 on the top shelf after a stellar side-by-side battle for two laps. The leaders came up on Brouwers with two to go and Lonergan drifted high and that allowed Newkirk to squeeze past.

Newkirk took the checkered flag first, but in post race tech inspection was disqualified for illegal ignition parts. That handed the win to Lonergan for his second of the season. Brady Krohnberg was second with Matt Brooks, Adam Goedeke and Dylan Nelson in the top five.

Kylie Kath took off from row one in the L&D Ag USRA B-Mods and looked like he would streak to his fifth win of the season. But not so fast, Justin McMahan got by John Warrington for second, but at that time Kath had checked out. Warrington trigger a caution when his right rear tire blew and shreaded his right rear quarter panel and left debris on the backstretch.

Kath led, but McMahan found something on the topside of the track. McMahan tracked down Kath and then made the pass for the win on lap 12. McMahan held on for his first career feature win with Kath second. Kadden Kath finished third while Scott Demmer and Terry Kohnert were fourth and fifth.

Mike Blowers started eighth in the Albert Lea Steel WISSOTA Street Stocks and made quick work to the front. On lap two he passed Jim Connors for the lead and just plain took off into the night. Blowers held the lead through a couple of yellow flags for his fifth clean sweep in a row in five nights of racing. Brandon Shaner finished in second with Nathan Schumacher, Kory Adams and Brent Holland third through fifth.

The Farm Boy BBQ WISSOTA Midwest Modifieds went green to checkers in their 15-lap feature without a yellow flag. Bryan Hernandez turned his luck around as he lead every lap for his first feature win of the season. The battle behind him was intense with Robbie Franklin in second over Greg Pfeifer Jr., Beau Lammers and Jayme Hiller.

There were only five Power 96/KQAQ 970AM IMCA Stock Cars but their 15-lap race was very good for the first 10-laps. Brandon Vogt led with Travis Shipman all over him for the first part of the feature. Shipman took the lead on lap five with a slide job, but Vogt returned the favor and reclaimed the lead. Shipman would take the lead for good on lap 10 for his third win of the season. Ryan Goergen got to second with Vogt third at the checkered flag.

Darwyn Karau and Greg Jensen redrew the front row for the French’s Repair and Fabrication USRA Modified main event. Neither driver accepted the Brew Pub Pizza Front Row Challenge so that potential bonus rises to $1,100 next week. Jensen bolted to the lead at the start and had a fabulous battle with Brandon Davis on laps five through seven.

Davis was right on Jensen but Jensen was not fazed a bit as they went door-to-door for the lead. Davis would take over on lap 8 and led the rest of the 25-lap race for his fourth win of the season. Jensen’s excellent run ended in second while Todd Scharkey out dueled Doug Hillson for third and Damon Haslip was fifth.

Next Friday, July 5 is the annual fireworks night at Chateau. It features a full night of racing and then one of the most spectacular fireworks displays in southern Minnesota will take place. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and racing is at 7:00 p.m.

Jackson Captures Another Lucas Oil MLRA Win

Sunday, June 30th, 2013

Corning, IA – Saturday’s Liberty 50 at Adams County Speedway in Corning, Iowa was the latest in a string of wins for Lebanon, Missouri’s Tony Jackson Jr. Jackson moved around outside polesitter Ryan Gustin on the 15thlap, and held off Chris Simpson late to score the $5,000 payday.

“It was excellent,” exclaimed Jackson of the race. “This race car has been awesome ever since we got it from Darrell (Lanigan). I tried to get Gustin there on the start, and he got by me. He messed up that one time and got off the bottom, and I got him. I just knew that if I could drive my race and stay on the bottom, I’d have to mess up for Chris to get me.”

Simpson closed quick on Jackson with four laps to go, but was never able to pass him. Simpson settled for second. On the final restart, both Terry Phillips and Chad Simpson moved around Gustin and finished third and fourth respectively. Gustin secured fifth.

The series will sit idle next weekend before taking part in the CMH Diamond Nationals at Lucas Oil Speedway on Saturday, July 13th. The race is co-sanctioned with the

Salute to America Night at MIS Postponed Due to Rain

Sunday, June 30th, 2013

A second line of showers put an end to any hopes of racing at Madison International Speedway tonight. The Big 8 Late Models, SCAG Midwest Trucks, and IMCA Vintage Cars were set to do battle as part of Salute to America Night that was to feature Thunder Cat Fireworks.

“It’s disappointing,” said MIS General Manager Dave Grueneberg. “This was going to be a great show, but with the rain we had earlier in the week, two waves today, and what appears to be more on the horizon we were up against too many obstacles.”

The entire event will be made up at a later date. Please check the MIS website at madisoninternationalspeedway.com for updates.
