Rice Lake Speedway Wet Yet Again; Upcoming Finale Set

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016

Rice Lake WI, August 27 – For the second straight Saturday and sixth of the 2016 racing season, the Rice Lake Speedway was rained out again on its second attempt to hold the Season Championships along with the UMSS Traditional Sprints.

Persistent showers followed by pesky drizzle, so light that it didn’t show on radar but heavy enough to keep the track from being worked in, made it impossible to run the program despite the strong desires of everyone to crown champions on Saturday. It was an especially tough year for the Sprint Cars which were booked twice at Rice Lake this year, only to get rained upon both times.

The Season Championships will now be held this coming Saturday, September 3rd for all five divisions that race at the speedway. All competitors are welcome to attend this race and participate as it is not a “closed” event and anyone, no matter how many many or few times they have raced at the track this year, is eligible to race.

Then, on Sunday, September 4th, the second half of the doubleheader and the final race of the 2016 race season, will be held with a full racing program in all five divisions again. Extra money will be on the line in all classes for the extra distance feature races.

On both nights, the cut off for drivers will be at 6:30 pm with racing to follow. The pits will open at 4 pm and the grandstands at 5 pm. For more late information on this event, check the speedway facebook page or call Dave Adams at 715-205-2861. On race day, the track phone number is 715-236-2002.

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016

(Warrensburg, MO) The race season at Central Missouri Speedway (CMS) is quickly winding down with Track Championships in the weekly racing divisions on the line. The first driver to claim a 2016 title is Jacob Ebert of Oak Grove. Ebert earned his second-consecutive and third overall B-Mod championship by edging out Troy Carlyle of Kearney, Missouri by just three points.

Jim Moody of Odessa claimed his second USRA Modified feature in a row and fourth of the year and now becomes one of the favorites for the $3,000 to-win Labor Day special event on Sunday, September 4th. In the B-Mod main event it appeared Dakota Foster took his second win but his car failed post-race technical inspection and Nic
Hanes of Trenton, Missouri was declared the winner, his first at CMS. Bobby Ruff of Belton also collected his first CMS feature win in the Street Stocks in a brand-new car while Byron Glotzbach of Topeka, Kansas celebrated with his fourth feature victory of the season in the Pure Stocks. In the guest class All Star Midget Series, Kory Schudy of Battlefield, Missouri claimed his first CMS feature win of the year.

The Pure Stocks opened the heat racing action with 14 drivers checked in for competition. byron Glotzbach grabbed the first heat win in front o Don Johnson and nick Pickard. in heat two, Jreremiah Wilson claimed the checkers with Larry Norris and Darrin Christy following.

With the track championship on the line, a large field of 25 B-Mod drivers had another chance to tune their cars for the $1,500 to-win Labor Day weekend special event next Saturday, September 3rd. During the three qualifying heat races, Doug Wetzel earned the win in the initial heat race ahead of Chris Brockway and Chad
Lyle. Dakota Foster was just ahead of Nic Hanes and Jacob Ebert for the win in the second heat race. Russ Niehoff crossed the finish line just ahead of Spencer Stephens and Rex Harris for the win in the third heat.

The All Star Midget series returned to the track with 16 drivers registered to compete to see if someone could unseat Wesley Smith after he captured three CMS features in a row. Kory Schudy secured the first heat win with Wesley Smith and Kellen Conover following while in heat two, Austin Lambert triumphed with the win followed by Rick Murko and Barry Lamb.

In the Street Stocks division, 14 drivers worked on their setups to figure out a way around Clayton Campbell, who gained another victory last weekend. The two heat race winners included Clayton Campbell in the first heat ahead of Bobby Ruff and Donnie Dannar with Brian Inlow collecting the second and final heat race win with Brian
Eckhoff and Allen Perryman following.

This week in the always competitive USRA modified heat races, the fans were entertained once again to intense racing as 19 drivers attempted to maximize passing points with their heat race finishes. Lewis Jackson crossed the line ahead of Jim Moody and Kyle Covert in heat one. Kevin Blackburn edged out Dean Wille and Travis Ruff for his best heat finish in the second heat. The final heat of the night had Gunner Martin grabbing the checkers ahead of Dwight Niehoff and Sam Florence.

The first feature event of the night started with the Pure Stocks as Byron Glotzbach emerged as early race leader with Jeremiah Wilson, Larry Norris and Darrin Christy in close pursuit. After early race cautions for Norris and then Wilson, Glotzbach kept Christy behind him despite Christy attempting the high and then the low side groove to move around him. Christy made it close at the finish, but GLotzbach held on and gained a hard-earned fourth feature win of the year. Christy was a close second with Jimmy Smith making a late move into third with point’s leader Rodger Detherage and Robert Gard closing out the top five.

The B-mod feature had Dakota Foster quickly establishing himself as the driver to beat in the main event. Nic Hanes, in his first-ever visit to CMS hounded Foster from second, but could not seem to find a line to work past the leader. Russ Niehoff also looked strong early on but had to go tail back later in the race after a single car spin. After numerous cautions, Chad Lyle and then Jim Moody, both hired guns from the USRA Modified division, moved into the top five. Late in the race, Lyle spun as Jacob Ebert and Moody challenged for third.

As the checkers flew it appeared Foster had won the feature, but after a post-race disqualification, Nic Hanes was declared the feature winner. Moody advanced from twelfth on the grid to finish second, one spot ahead of Jacob Ebert and Jace Gay, who had a solid run into fourth. Troy Carlyle slowly battled back from a 25th place
starting spot up and finished fifth but came up just shy for the title as Ebert claimed the title.

The Allstar Midget main event began as Cory Schudy shot out to the early lead after a quick restart. Kellen Conover, who made the trip over from St. Louis, tried to make his move to the front past Schudy but could not get by the leader. Meanwhile, Wesley Smith and Reily Kreisel battled near the front using both the high and low side to maneuver the track.

Schudy maintained his lead through lapped traffic with Conover in hot pursuit and claimed his first CMS feature win the year. Because of a last-lap caution, Kreisel was later scored in second. Austin Lambert from Claremore, Oklahoma had solid run and finished third with Smith fourth and Trey Lambert in fifth.

As the green flag flew for the Street Stock feature, Clayton Campbell and Brain Inlow dashed into turn one the with Campbell coming out of turn two with the lead. Brain Eckhoff and Bobby Ruff were also looking to move up in the top four. Ruff then took advantage after several cautions and snuck past Campbell on the high side for
the lead. Later on, Inlow was caught up in a chain reaction incident on the restart and ended up against the turn four wall and ultimately retiring from the event.

Ruff stayed strong up front for the remainder of the race and took the checkers for his first feature win at CMS. Campbell solidified his points lead and finished second with Jay Prevete moving up into third. Eckhoff had a strong finish in fourth with Allen Perryman rounding out the top five.

The USRA modifieds once again showed their skills and patience early on with Gunner Martin grabbing the early lead just ahead of Kevin Blackburn and Jim Moody. Moody stalked Martin and Blackburn and took the lead on a restart out of turn four, diving down to the middle to grab the lead.

Behind Moody, Blackburn and Martin had an intense battle for the second spot. Both drivers at one point held second and then swapped it back and forth several times. Dean Wille ran his best USRA Modified race this year in the top four as Kyle Covert and Dwight Niehoff looked strong just behind Wille attempting to move up.

Over the course of the mid-point of the race, Moody and Martin swapped the lead in another classic CMS showdown between arguably the best drivers in the MO-KAN region. Blackburn stayed close to the lane-swapping duo looking for a chance to pounce.

After another late caution, Moody took back control of the event and pulled away over so slightly in lapped traffic, leaving Martin and Blackburn to resume their battle for second. As the race drew to a close, both Martin and Blackburn reeled in Moody, setting up a final two-lap showdown that whipped the crowd into a frenzy. As the final checkers of the night flew, Moody narrowly edged Blackburn, who had a strong run on the low side of turn four to claim his fourth feature of the year and second in a row. Blackburn was second with Martin in third in the closest three-way battle of the season. Wille hung on for his best finish this year in fourth while Covert had his best finish of the year in fifth while Danny Scrogham finishing in sixth.

Sanders spoils Sobbings sweep dreams at Park Jefferson

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016

JEFFERSON, S.D.– In dramatic fashion before a huge crowd of fans, Rodney Sanders scored his ninth United States Modified Touring Series win of the season Saturday night at the Park Jefferson Speedway. The 73rd triumph of Sanders career was his second during the Hunt for the USMTS Caseys Cup powered by S&S Fishing & Rental, and kept the 26-year-old from Happy, Texas, within striking distance of his third USMTS national championship.

Starting 12th on the grid made for a daunting task for Sanders, and the fact that he had to pass Jesse Sobbing, Jason Hughes, Ricky Thornton Jr., Stormy Scott, Dylan Smith, Ryan Mikkelson, Dereck Ramirez, Cade Dillard, Zack VanderBeek, Mike Jergens and Mike Densberger made the feat even more impressive. Sobbing, who started the 37-lap main event looking to sweep the night for the Home Pride Motorsports team after Jack Dover won the Nebraska 360 Sprint Series feature moments earlier, looked to have luck on his side after putting a string of bad draws behind him with a front row start.

Last years rookie titlist was solid for the first 28 laps, holding off Hughes and Thornton on several occasions as he throttled around the high side of the 4/10-mile clay oval. But after fighting to keep his lead for several laps, Sobbing finally gave way to Sanders on lap 29.

Sanders cruised the final seven laps to secure the $3,000 winners paycheck and keep his hopes alive of a third series crown. Sobbing kept points leader Hughes as bay to collect runner-up honors while Thornton backed up his second-place run Friday with a fourth-place showing tonight.

Stormy Scott, who has looked sharp the last three nights driving Austin Arnesons GRT chassis, started seventh and slipped back as far as 12th before surging late to grab the fifth spot. Fourteenth-starting Jett Big Eagle was sixth, Dylan Smith rebounded from a ninth-lap spin to take seventh, Johnny Scott earned the KSE Racing Products Hard Charger Award by racing from 20th to eighth, Ryan Mikkelson nabbed ninth and Dereck Ramirez completed the top 10.

On Sunday night, the Casino Speedway hosts the Sandy Benson Memorial presented by Riddle’s Jewelry and Jurgens Printing featuring a full night of special promotions to honor the Chairman of the Board of the 63-year-old speedplant on the shores of beautiful Lake Kampeska in Watertown, S.D. It will be the first time back at the semi-banked 3/8-mile dirt oval for the USMTS since 2011. Former winners here include Tommy Myer, Scott Ward, Al Hejna, Zack VanderBeek, Kelly Shryock and Jon Tesch a multi-time track champion and only driver with two USMTS wins in his hometown.

The pits open at 3 p.m., and the spectator gates open at 5 with Happy Hour from 5-6:30. A candy toss for the kids takes place at 6 and the green flag flies at 6:30. Midwest Modifieds and Street Stocks will also be in action. Admission is $20 for adults, kids ages 8-13 get in for $5 and children ages 7 and under get in for free with a paid adult. Pit passes will be $35. Race fans can get $2-off coupons at Casey’s General Stores in Milbank, Webster and all three Watertown locations. Visit www.caseys.com to find the store nearest you.
