“What an incredible weekend it was four team,” Hughes said with a smile. “I may never be able to retire this car because it’s just been perfect. I want to thank my family, my crew, my sponsors, and all of my fans for their never-ending support. This championship is dedicated to them.”

Battling for a $5,000 payday, Jason Hughes made his move to the lead on the final lap of the race, gaining eleven spots to score his second straight victory of the weekend. Brining his win tally to ten on the season, Jason Hughes outdueled Rodney Sanders, Joe Duvall, Brad Waits, and Stormy Scott in the 40-lap feature event.

Wrapping up the busy, yet successful weekend on Saturday evening, Jason Hughes started in the 12th position in his heat race. Hughes improved eight spots in his heat, edging his way into the main event. With $10,000 on the line, Jason charged to the front of the field to pull off the first ever three-win sweep of the Featherlite Fall Jamboree. Bringing his weekend payday to $20,000, Hughes captured a $10,000 payday on Saturday along with his eleventh victory of the season. Gaining eleven spots in the 50-lap A-Main, Jason Hughes ousted Rodney Sanders, Tim Donlinger, Brad Wiats, and Bobby Malchus in the feature.

“We are thrilled once again to conclude our season here with the MLRA Fall Nationals and Big Buck 50 Factory Stock event.” stated Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Dan Robinson. “Watching Phillips and Stovall duke it out for the MLRA Championship will be worth the price of admission alone but when you throw in all the great Late Models that are in this area as well as a huge field of Factory Stocks and USRA B-Mods, it should make for one great racing weekend!” New this year, Lucas Oil Speedway officials are pleased to announce a partnership bringing the event into homes across the country. All three classes, every lap, both nights will be broadcast live on RacinDirt.com for the first ever internet pay-per-view from Wheatland, Missouri.

“We have looked at various events over the course of the season to stream live online and this event seemed to be a perfect fit,” shared Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager and MLRA Series Director, Dan Robinson. “With race teams in each of the three divisions traveling from all over the Midwest, we wanted to offer their fans, friends and family the option to watch from home. Of course we encourage fans to attend the event in person, but if they can’t make it to one or both nights, this is a great option.”

The Lucas Oil MLRA will run complete shows both nights with a $3,000 to win main event on Friday night and $5,000 to win on Saturday night, while the Factory Stocks will qualify and run heat races on Friday night before battling it out for 50 laps and $4,000 to win on Saturday.

“We are thrilled to broadcast live from Lucas Oil Speedway,” commented Racindirt.com co-owner Trenton Berry. “This facility is top notch and we want to showcase all it has to offer through the pay-per-view. Hopefully fans will tune in and want to visit the track in person in the future. Our goal is always to provide a quality production to fans who cannot be in attendance at the event, while exposing new fans to the series, track and drivers as well.”

Wednesday, September 30th, 2015

LONG ISLAND, N.Y. –All the marbles will be on the line at the New London-Waterford Speedbowl when the Northeast Race Cars and Parts Tri Track Open Modified Series concludes an action packed weekend on October 25.

Unlike the four races prior in 2015, the series season finale will be a non-points event. At the Speedbowl in September, Matt Hirschman was crowned the 2015 Tri Track Series champion after finishing on the podium in the Dunleavy’s 100.

This event will also hold a completely different format than any of the other four races this season. There will be no short distance heat races followed up by consolation races and a B-main feature. Instead, this event will be started with two 35 lap “qualifying feature’s” that will determine who will advance into the big show.

The series will use a blind draw to line up the twin 35 lap feature’s, splitting the car count exactly in half. For example, if fourty cars show up at the Speedbowl on that Sunday, twenty will be in the first feature and twenty will be in the second feature.

From there, the top eleven finishers in each one will transfer into a 65 lap, $5,000 to win main event. The 65 lap feature that will conclude the afternoon will include 22 drivers, plus up to four provisional spots that could be added by series officials.

*Payout for the 35 lap qualifying races:*

1. $3,000
2. $2,000
3. $1,500
4. $1,000
5. $800
6. $700
7. $650
8. $600
9. $550
10. $500
11. $450
12. $400

13-24 in the qualifying races will pay $400.

*Payout for the 65 lap feature:*

1. $5,000
2. $3,000
3. $2,500
4. $2,000
5. $1,500
6. $1,000
7. $800
8. $700
9. $600
10. $500
11. $400

Series officials will also award a $200 bonus for 34 teams that competed at the Lee USA Speedway and Monadnock Speedway events earlier in the season.

Also in attendance on the Sunday afternoon will be New London-Waterford Speedbowl Mini Stocks, who will hold a 50 lap feature event. The $2,000 to win “Battle of the Sound,” for the Legend Cars, will also be 50 laps in distance. The series wishes to thank all of the fans, drivers, teams, sponsors and officials for the support during the 2015 racing season.

Brown and Loyet Headline ASCS Winners, Hagar Sweeps WAR at Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial!

Tuesday, September 29th, 2015

WHEATLAND, MO – In an absolute display of dominance, Brad Loyet parked his Vacuworx No. 05 in Victory Lane for his first triumph at the Lucas Oil Speedway this past Saturday night with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network. Derek Hagar completed a weekend sweep in Impact Signs, Awnings, Wraps WAR non-wing Sprints. Grain Valley, Missouri’s Brian Brown took top honors in ASCS Preliminary action Friday night.

The seventh time Brad Loyet has found Victory Lane since 2012 with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour, the win in the fifth annual Hockett/McMillin Memorial was a special one for the Loyet family.

“Anytime you come to a race like this, it’s a huge deal. Jesse was a friend of mine. He drove one of my cars before, and actually the first winged car I ever raced was Jesse’s car at Lake of the Ozarks Speedway so it’s pretty cool to be here in Victory Lane,” said Loyet of the win. “I’ve tried really hard to get a win in a Sprint Car here. I’ve won in a Midget, but this feel great.” Finally rolling after two failed starts that saw Scottie McDonald and Brian Brown walk away uninjured after taking hard flips, the No. 95 of Matt Covington got the jump to the lead from the pole position. Taking the runner-up spot on Lap 3 from Tony Bruce, Jr., the Loyet Landscaping No. 05 worked the cushion of the Lucas Oil Speedway to run down the A-Rock Material No. 95 of Matt Covington.

Finding traffic by Lap 8, Loyet jumped on the advantage. Closing fast, Loyet raced to the lead on Lap 10. Caution working Lap 11, the restart saw Derek Hagar go to work on Matt Covington for second. Coming from eighth, the R.E. Enterprises No. 9jr took the spot on Lap 14. Giving chase into traffic, all doors were slammed shut as Brad Loyet raced to victory by 6.803 seconds over Derek Hagar.

“We were way too good early on. We had the car at the beginning that we had at the end last night but hats off to my crew for giving me a good racecar to be able to come from basically mid-pack both nights, and be able to contend for the win,” commented Derek when asked about the runner-up finish. “I know how special it is to win this event. I won it last year and Jesse has a special place in all our hearts.” Runner up both nights with the Lucas Oil ASCS, Derek completed a weekend sweep with the Impact Signs W.A.R. Non-Wing Sprints for Hockett Motorsports Holding off the charge of Tony Bruce, Jr. the third spot went to Matt Covington, who ended a 22 race drought between podium finishes.

“We’ve had good speed in the car lately, the driver’s just been making a few mistakes. I did it out there too. I just stayed bottom to middle too long and Loyet showed me the way on the top, but the car felt great. It was the same car we had last night and you know, I’ve been on the pole here before, and thought I was going to win and we fell back to fourth on that one, got third on this one, so we’re getting better and that’s all we can ask for.”

Tim Crawley worked middle to top in the closing laps to get to fourth in the Mike Ward Motorsports No. 88x with Danny Lasoski tearing his way through the field from 21st to complete the top five in the Creason Pipeline No. 33L.
Dicing it up with Johnny Herrera and Tony Bruce, Jr. in the closing laps, Ian Madsen was able to grab sixth with Herrera seventh followed by Bruce. Sam Hafertepe, Jr. from 18th was ninth with Wayne Johnson making the most of a 23rd place provisional start to round out the top-ten.

Losing Danny Wood and Ricky Lee Stangl to crashes on Friday night, Matt Close and Danny Lasoski filled in those spots to bring the event count to 53 drivers. Six Heat Races went to Morgan Turpen, Tim Crawley, Johnny Herrera, Brandon Hanks, Jonathan Cornell, and Chance Morton. B-Feature wins went to Seth Bergman, Sam Hafertepe, Jr., and Randy Martin. Provisional starts were used by Wayne Johnson and Jordan Weaver. It was the first time this season either driver has had to use a provisional.

The final outing of the season for the Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region, Jonathan Cornell picked up his fourth series championship.

The Lucas Oil ASCS presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network competes next at the Devil’s Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas on Friday, October 16 and Saturday, October 17.

Matt Derek Hagar made it two for two as he took the second night of the Hockett/McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway Saturday night with the Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps WAR Series presented by Next LED. Steve Thomas took the lead from his pole starting position as he was followed by Casey Shuman and Wyatt Burks. With one lap down, the yellow came out for Danny Smith, who stopped in turn four with front end damage. On the restart, Thomas again took command with Shuman, Burks, and Chris Parkinson behind. Hagar, who was fifth, would start to make his move forward as he passed Parkinson on lap four.

For the next five laps, the top five would stay the same and on lap ten Hagar moved past Burks into third. By lap thirteen with Thomas still in command, Hagar started putting heavy pressure on Shuman for the second spot. A lap later, Hagar got a good run coming off of turn two and moved past Shuman down the backstretch. On lap sixteen, Hagar made the winning pass as he swept by Thomas into the top spot. Shuman would get by Thomas for second on lap twenty and a lap later, the final yellow would come out for Riley Kreisel, who slid to a stop in turn two with damage to his car. On the restart, Hagar took control with Shuman behind. Burks was able to move past Thomas on lap twenty one with Parkinson moving by into fourth a lap later. Another driver on the move at this point was Mitchell Moore, who moved into fifth on lap twenty three.

By the checked flag, Hagar’s lead was nearly half a straightaway in his Hockett Racing/Korte Transportation/Al and Diane’s Red Onion Lounge #75. Shuman would finish second in the Hockett Racing/Korte Transportation/Al and Diane’s Red Onion Lounge #77 and in the process he took the 2015 WAR Series championship. Burks was a strong third in the Industrial Maintenace Inc. #11W. He was followed by Parkinson in the Country Kids Daycare/54th Street Grill and Bar/Ozark Barge and Dock Service #65. Parkinson also became the inaugural WAR East champion. Rounding out the top five was Moore in his Kelly Potter owned #51. Thomas was sixth and he was followed by Korey Weyant, Craig Carroll, Brian McClelland, and Gavin Stout.

Mike Martin Storms to Brawl for it All Victory at Canyon Speedway Park

Tuesday, September 29th, 2015

In one of the most contested races in Canyon Speedway Park history, “The Magic Man” Mike Martin emerged victorious. With eight official lead changes, the Yuma, Arizona driver took the lead from Andy Reinbold on lap 27 and claimed Saturday’s “Brawl For It All.” Co-sanctioned with the USAC West Coast Sprints, the $2,500 win marked the third USAC SouthWest triumph of the year for the veteran racer. Reinbold, Nick Aiuto, Chris Bonneau, and Stevie Sussex chased Martin to the checkered flags.

Starting on the outside of the front row, “Chargin” Charles Davis Jr. led the opening four laps until Sussex slipped by on the next circuit. Davis was back on top for the next two laps, but Sussex had other plans and led laps eight through nineteen. Davis rallied back to take command for the next three laps and Sussex regained the lead on lap twenty-three. Thirteenth starting Andy Reinbold surprised the field and grabbed the lead on the next circuit. Reinbold’s hopes for his first win of the year were dashed as Martin took the lead for good on lap twenty-seven to win the second round of the “Grudge Series.”

Racing his #16 Sherwin-Williams / Ultimate Offroad Maxim, “The Magic Man” Mike Martin had a night to remember. Martin outqualified the twenty-two car field and ran second in his heat race. Now in a tie with Josh Pelkey for fourth on the SouthWest win list, Mike is sixth in the standings with two top qualifier awards, nine heat race victories, fifteen top-10 finishes, and 87 feature laps led. In addition, “The Magic Man” has climbed to second in the Grudge Series.

Andy Reinbold of Gilbert, Arizona earned the night’s “Hard Charger / Best Passing Job” honors with a second place run from thirteenth. Piloting Todd Underwood’s #19 AME Electrical / Ross Equipment Rentals Spike, Reinbold took the lead from Sussex late in the race, but had to settle for second. The tallest driver was thirteenth quick in time trials and won the night’s first 8-lap heat race. Leaving Canyon ranked eighth in SouthWest points and tied for sixth in the Grudge Series, Andy has two heat race victories and nine top-10 finishes on the year.

Camp Verde, Arizona’s Nick Aiuto had one of his best nights of the season with a third place finish. Driving his #27 David Dick Attorney at Law / Ellis Race Cars machine, Aiuto qualified seventh overall and scored fourth in his heat race. Nick is currently tenth in both the SouthWest and Grudge points with two heat race victories, one hard charger award, seven top-10 finishes, and four feature laps led. Chris Bonneau of Phoenix, Arizona scored fourth in Canyon’s “Brawl For It All” after starting eighth. Piloting his #78 Priced Right Auto Sales XXX, Bonneau was sixth fast in time trials and was fifth in his heat race. Sitting twelfth in the Grudge Series, Chris is fifteenth in SouthWest points on the strength of one top qualifier award, two heat race victories, and eight top-10 finishes.

Tempe, Arizona’s Stevie Sussex ran fifth in the 30-lap main event. Racing Mike Burkhart’s #21AZ Stratis Construction / Westin Diversified RSS, the Grudge Series point leader qualified third overall, placed third in his heat race, and took the lead one three separate occasions. To date, Sussex is third in the SouthWest point chase with three feature wins, two top-qualifier awards, three heat race victories, three hard charger awards, fourteen top-10 finishes, and 112 feature laps led.

“Chargin” Charles Davis Jr. of Buckeye, Arizona raced to victory in the night’s second heat race. Driving the Massey Motorsports’ #50 RSS Industries / Rod End Supply RSS, Davis was eighth quick in time trials, held the lead three times, and scored thirteenth in the feature. The five-time Arizona champion ranks third in the Grudge Series and second in SouthWest points with three feature wins, seven heat race victories, two top qualifier awards, one semi-main win, one hard charger award, nineteen top-10 finishes, and 104 feature laps led.
