KFKF Country 94.1 FM Race Night on tap Saturday at Central Missouri Speedway!

Saturday, August 18th, 2018

(Warrensburg, Missouri) So far the late-summer racing at Central Missouri Speedway (CMS) has been beyond good with thrilling finishes, side-by-side multi-lane on-track action, hearty payouts, large groups of drivers, and animated fans converging on the grounds for Saturday racing.

All of this continues this weekend for KFKF Country 94.1 FM Race Night, featuring Modifieds, Street Stocks, Mod-Lites, B-Mods, and Pure Stocks competing in full race programs for each of the car classes.

Last week, the Wiley veterans emerged as champions with Kevin Blackburn (Modifieds), Marc Carter (Street Stocks), Dillon Raffurty (Mod-Lites), and Jacob Ebert (B-Mods) capturing the headlines. However, a new first-time winner emerged in Pure Stocks as C.J. Turner collected his first-ever CMS win, becoming the ninth different driver this season to capture a Pure Stock main-event win in the highly competitive class.

Blackburn’s victory was his second on the year as he prevailed ahead of the summer’s hottest driver, Chad Lyle, who finished second. Terry Schultz was the point’s leader heading into last week’s action but Lyle is now out front in the Modified division in search of his first-ever CMS Track Championship, which is nearly hard to believe as Lyle as over 60 career CMS wins and has been a mainstay at the track since the 1990’s.

Marc Carter is not a weekly regular at the track; however, whenever he is on hand he is always a threat to win. Last week he captured his 46th career win in a showdown with former champion Clayton Campbell. However, the current pace-setter in the Street Stock standings is Brett Wood who comfortably leads Allen Perryman on the strength of 10 top-five finishes.

In Mod-Lite action, Dillon Raffurty leads his closest competitor by 101 points. So far this season, the defending Mod-Lite champion has accumulated 8 CMS victories to lead the way. Only Donnie Dannar, who is second in the standings, and Ed Griggs have managed to out-race Raffurty to score victories. Griggs recently returned to action in his own machine and will look to add a fifth main-event victory.

Jacob Ebert is already sitting fifth on the CMS all-time winner’s list with 44 victories after adding his fourth victory of this season and third in a row during last week’s action. Steven Clancy is this season’s front-runner in the points and he also has recorded a feature win this season, in which he leads over Jake Richards, another multiple-time feature winner this season with two trips to victory lane.

In the Pure Stock division, past champion Rodger Detherage finds himself in familiar territory as he commands the lead by 60 in front of a pair of young and up-and-coming drivers. Dakkota Brisbin made his first visit to victory lane this season and is second with another first-time winner, Joey Harper holding strong in third. Note, mention of any driver does not guarantee race appearance.

For Saturday’s action, Pit Gates will open at 4:30 followed by spectator grandstands at 5. Driver pill-draw ends at 6:15 (no passing points if driver checks in late), the pit meeting takes place at 6:30, and practice ‘hot laps’ begin at 7. Racing begins at 7:30. For a complete rundown of the weekend’s events visit the track online at www.centralmissourispeedway.net.

Adult general admission is $12, Active Military $10, Senior Citizens ages 65 to 74 years $10, Kids ages 6 to 12 years $6, Senior Citizens 75 and older free, Children 5 and under free. All pit passes, regardless of age are $30. All minors 18 years and older will require a minor release form, available on-site.

CMS will soon turn its attention to the upcoming Labor Day holiday special events, which take place on
Saturday, September 1st and Sunday, September 2nd. The weekend action will feature big payouts for Modifieds and B-Mods with Street Stocks, B-Mods, and Pure Stocks on hand for night one with championship points on the line. The weekend concludes with Modified and B-Mod special events plus the final appearance of the year for ULMA Late Models and E-Mods. The CMS staff will finalize the event details during a planning meeting this Thursday.

Looking ahead, CMS is now accepting items to benefit the less fortunate and homeless population of the greater community. Fans may drop off clothing in good condition for this drive. Preferred items include coats, hats, gloves, jackets and clothing in good condition, which will be distributed through agencies within Warrensburg proper to those less fortunate. CMS fans and drivers have a reputation of being among the most charitable in racing and we expect nothing less from the outstanding group of generous fans and drivers in the coming weeks until season end for our latest charitable cause.

All drivers in the area are reminded that CMS has waved the track registration fee for the remainder of the year. Drivers that have been thinking about giving CMS a go this season, your time is now. Modifieds are especially reminded of the bonus payouts if there are 24 or more cars signed in prior to 6:15 on race night. If there are 24 or more cars, Modified drivers will compete for either the $1,000-to-win, $160-to-start weekly guaranteed cash payout and $7,100 purse, or they will have a shot at the $1,200-to-win, $180-to-start purse or the $1,500-to-win, $200-to-start purse!

Fan Appreciation Night at Lucas Oil Speedway features tight championship chases and vintage race cars

Saturday, August 18th, 2018

WHEATLAND, Missouri – The home stretch of Lucas Oil Speedway’s Big Adventure RV Weekly Racing Series resumes Saturday night with tight points battles to watch at TA/Petro Fan Appreciation Night Presented by The Ozarks CW/O-Zone.

In the first of two remaining programs until season champions are crowned, fans also will be treated to food and drink specials – $1 nachos, $2 hot dogs and $2 soft drinks – plus the Show-Me Vintage Racers with a car show on the midway and 10-lap exhibition race after intermission.

The Pitts Homes USRA Modifieds headline the racing action with a special 25-lap, $1,000-to-win main event. Darron Fuqua of Mayetta, Kansas holds a 98-point lead over four-time reigning track champion Jeff Cutshaw in the title chase.

Things are much closer in the other three divisions. The Warsaw Auto Marine & RV ULMA Late Models is particularly intriguing with just 75 points separating the top six. Aaron Marrant of Richmond, the 2016 track champ, is five points in front of 2017 champion Johnny Fennewald with Kaeden Cornell just 20 behind.

JC Morton of Springfield clings to a 13-point lead over Taylor Moore with Kris Jackson just 38 behind in the Ozark Golf Cars USRA B-Mods. Waynesville’s David Hendrix has a 21-point cushion over Brian Schutt in the Big O Tires Street Stocks.

Fans might feel like they’re going back in time when they see the Show-Me Vintage Racers on display and on the track. SMVR President Mickey Fleehart said he expects 10-18 cars from his organization to attend, with a wide variance of years, makes and models.

“They’re replica race cars, all vintage-body cars, with 35-40-year-old technology in them,” Fleehart said. “This is a big deal for us to come up there and try to put on a good show. We had a race scheduled there several years back and it got rained out. It’s a joy for us to be going down there.”

Some of the cars Fleehart expects will be on hand include a 1933 Ford Coupe, a 1964 Chevrolet Malibu, a 1956 Ford, a 1963 Ford Fairlane, a 1938 Chevrolet Sedan, a 1973 Chevrolet Chevelle, a 1968 Ford Falcon and possibly a 1923 Model-A Sedan. Fans can find out more about the club by visiting smvr.net.

Gates open at 4 p.m. with hot laps at 6:30 and opening ceremonies at 7.

Fans also are reminded that the previously scheduled Level 5 Off Road UTV/Side by Side Series event for Saturday has been cancelled.

Phillips finds pot of gold in Mason City Motor Speedway’s Diamond Jo Casino “All-In 77″

Saturday, August 18th, 2018

MASON CITY, Iowa –One week ago, Terry Phillips surpassed the two-year anniversary of his last United States Modified Touring Series win. After Sunday night’s race at the Mason City Motor Speedway, there won’t be a third.

Phillips experienced his share of bad luck during the winless streak, but Sunday night a little good fortune came in the direction of the 52-year-old veteran from Springfield, Mo., when race leader Johnny Scott suffered a flat tire with eight laps to go.

When opportunity knocked, Phillips kicked open the door and pulled away from the pack over the last few laps to notch his 25th career USMTS victory-his first since Aug. 5, 2016.

Scott, on the other hand, was well on his way to scoring his third straight win of the weekend and extend his points lead in the USMTS Hunt for the Casey’s Cup powered by Summit before misfortune struck on lap 17.

While it’s been a dream season for Scott, it’s been a nightmare for Phillips. But what better time than the 7th Annual Diamond Jo Casino “All-In 77″ to turn his luck around?

Scaling back his successful late model program this year to focus on chasing the $50,000 USMTS national championship, the title is all but out of reach at this point. But that hasn’t stopped him from digging-and the miles on his tow vehicle are no fewer than if he had one every race this season.

Commitment and tenacity paid off to the tune of $2,875 Sunday night, but the cold-blooded murder of the monkey on his back was priceless.

For the second time in as many nights, “Cool Hand” Lucas Schott wound up second at the finish line. Rodney Sanders earned the FK Rod Ends Hard Charger Award by racing from ninth to third in 25 laps and early race leader Zack VanderBeek held off Dereck Ramirez for fourth.

Johnny Scott rebounded to finish sixth while twin brother Stormy Scott followed him in seventh. Cory Crapser, Joe Duvall and Adam Kates completed the top ten.

In nine USMTS events held at the North Iowa Fairgrounds half-mile dirt oval, Phillips became the eighth different driver to visit victory lane. Only Ryan Gustin has two wins-both of them coming on the same night last August after an early-season rain-out forced the double-features night.

From the track formerly known as the I-35 Speedway, the series heads south on said interstate highway to invade the still-known-as I-35 Speedway in Winston, Mo., this Thursday, Aug. 16.

Then on Friday, the Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., hosts the 3rd Annual Grant Junghans Memorial with a $10,002 top prize up for grabs.

The weekend wraps up Saturday at the Salina Highbanks Speedway in Pryor Creek, Okla.

Hanke Surprises Red Cedar Speedway Late Model Drivers

Saturday, August 18th, 2018

Menomonie WI,– Ben Hanke and Zack Anibas recorded the first feature wins of their racing careers, Mark Thomas won his first feature of the season, the Richards brothers recorded yet another clean sweep and Kevin Adams also visited victory lane on a busy Friday night at the Red Cedar Speedway.

On this steamy August night, the speedway completed only its second program of the entire year where all seven classes were in racing action and with everyone’s cooperation, some good feature racing action was completed well within the speedway’s proscribed curfew limits.
Mike Keller took the early lead in the Late Model feature race but it was only under green for a couple of laps before Hanke moved in and grabbed the top spot away from Keller. Once in front, Hanke was able to extend his lead slightly while a good battle took place for second as Keller fought to hold off Jake Redetzke and Jesse Glenz for the position. The lone yellow flew with six laps complete when Denny Cutsforth slammed hard into the first turn wall, inflicting serious damage to his car with Kyle Johnson also being eliminated in the same accident.
Back on green, Hanke continued to lead but Redetzke was able to drive into the second spot and the race was on for the lead. However, Hanke was setting a torrid pace and no matter what Redetzke tried, he seemed unable to cut into the advantage that Hanke held. Meanwhile, back in the pack, Mike Prochnow was on the move after starting eighth and using the high side of the track, he was marching toward the front of the field.
At the front of the pack, Hanke was still in control and no matter which line on the track Redetzke tried, Hanke continued to hold his advantage, and in fact, may have been slightly increasing his leading margin. With the laps winding down, Hanke continued to hold the lead, and when starter Gary Gruen waved the checkered flag, it was Ben Hanke who drove home for the first win of his five year Late Model career. Redetzke maintained second but never put up a serious challenge while Prochnow’s late race march saw him roll past Keller in the last few laps to take third. Glenz rounded out the top five.

Alex Rosensteel took the early lead in the Hornet main event but he was soon challenged by Derek Krumrie and Jordan Langer for the lead. A lap two yellow after several cars got together in turn two slowed the action briefly with Langer’s stalled car forcing him to the tail.
Krumrie continued to lead as the race resumed but several cars were on the march to the front, led by Anibas, Jeremy Johnson, Brad York and Armond Love. Anibas was slowing great speed as he was able to drive into the lead, but the battle for the top spot continued.
A swarm of cars jockeyed for position on each lap with Anibas continuing to hold back the challengers who took turns trying to get past him as the running order behind the leader changed on every lap. Near the end of the event, Johnson became the prime challenger and he got up beside Anibas several times but couldn’t pull off the passing maneuver. On the last lap, Johnson once again took a big run at the leader coming off the final corner but Anibas, driving the car of Shadow Kitchner for the first time, held on by half a car length for the thrilling win. Krumrie finished a close third and was trailed at the finish by York and Love.

It was a three feature sweep by the Richards brothers from Mondovi as they won three consecutive feature races, back to back to back. George was up first in the Pure Stocks and while their field of cars was small, there was plenty of action in the battle for the lead.
Krysta Doughty was the initial leader of the race with Kent Harmon and Richards challenging her. The racing action got intense and after a tin swapping battle, Harmon went around which triggered the first yellow of the race. With the action continuing, Richards was able to drive around Doughty and take over the lead while Harmon charged back up to battle with Doughty for second.
Those two battled hard for the second spot with them leaning on each other and swapping positions on the track. They eventually came together in turn one with Doughty spinning and Harmon getting into the wall. Harmon was done with damage to his car and Doughty was restored to the second place.

Things settled in at this point and Richards drove away for the win, dominating the last four laps. Doughty settled for second with Adam Pratt finishing third, ahead of Jeff Tisdale while Harmon, although setting in the infield, still recorded a top five finish.
Street Stocks were next and Danny Richards scored probably the most dominating win of the night. After Ron Hanestad grabbed the initial lead, Richards moved to the middle of the track and drove past Hanestad and he then disappeared into the hazy evening as there would be no one who could keep up with him.
Fresh off his sixteen thousand plus dollar win last Tuesday, he would pull away in what turned out to be a nonstop main event. Mike Knudtson was on the move and he was able to drive under Hanestad to take over second but he couldn’t do anything about catching the leader.

The race remained under the green and the top runners got rather spread out with no big challenges for position. Richards motored on for yet another win with Knudtson and Hanestad next in line. Zach Manley and Parker Anderson completed the top five finishers.
Next up were the Super Stocks and the Richards family was looking for the sweep. Austin Workman led the first lap of the race after starting on the pole but the field made only one lap before a multi car stack up occurred in turn two with Adam Soltis being the unlucky one that came in late and was eliminated as a result of the wreck.
When racing resumed, it was Dan Gullikson won blew by Workman to take over the top spot with Richards moving into second after starting eighth. Gullikson liked the top side of the track while Richards was hugging the bottom lane, and that proved to be the winning strategy as Tommy was able to make the pass for the lead in turn four.

Once in front, the two leaders ran just at just about the same interval, with Gullikson trying to move back closer by using the top side in turn four while Richards continued to work the low groove. Behind them, a good battle for position saw Eric Olson squeeze by into the third spot but he was soon challenged by Steve Thomas for that position.
The last fifteen laps of the race went green to checkered and while the margin between the leaders stayed just about the same, it was Richards that was in front and he drove on home for another feature win at Red Cedar. Gullikson settled for second with Thomas’ charge from ninth completed when he passed Olson for third late in the race while Bart Steffen completed the top five.

The Modified feature was the only main event to have more than its share of difficulties as the yellow waved seven times for a variety of minor spins and stalls, but they broke up the race enough that the longest green flag stretch of the contest was the last five laps.
Josh Hessler was the early leader and he was setting a strong pace as he moved to pull away from those chasing him. Behind him, Brandon Jensen, Ashley Anderson, Kevin Adams, Mark Hanson and Mike Anderson were all battling for real estate and looking to move up.

As Hessler continued to lead, the battle behind him got even hotter and on lap six, Adams and Ashley Anderson collided as they battled for third with Anderson spinning and restarting on the tail of the field.
Again under the green, Adams went to the high side and with a power move off turn four, he took over the lead from Hessler. Hanson followed him into second and the race for the lead was on. Another collision slowed the action and on the green, Mike Anderson got the jump on Hanson and took over second. He was then chasing Adams for the lead as one last spinner set up a five lap dash to the finish.
Mike Anderson gave it his best but Adams was just a little too quick on this night as the point leader added to his advantage with the feature win. Hanson finished a strong third while Ashley Anderson worked his way back up through the field to finish fourth, just ahead of Tony Schill who started dead last in the seventeen car field.

The final event of the night was the Midwest Modified main event and Thomas scored a thrilling win as he held off the late rush of Shane Halopka for the win. Cody Borgeson was the early leader of the race which had five slowdowns in the first half of the race before everyone settled in and raced the final seven laps.

While Borgeson led initially, it was Thomas who after starting in the second row was able to drive around Borgeson and take over the lead. While the race was slowed four more times in close succession, Thomas continued to lead while a big battle for position behind him saw Halopka eventually break into second after battling Calvin Iverson, Travis Anderson, Tommy Richards and Shawn Kelley.
With both Anderson and Richards felled by mechanical issues, Iverson moved into third but the battle was for the lead. Halopka pushed as hard as he could but Thomas had his car working well and he wasn’t about to give up the lead. They raced hard the last several laps but Halopka couldn’t cut into the two car length lead that Thomas held and he drove across the line as the winner. Fortunately for him, the race didn’t go any longer than it did as just after he crossed the line, his motor let go in a cloud of smoke and steam and he littered the track with oil from his blown up power plant.

Halopka finished a strong second and was trailed by Iverson, Gunnar Watkins who made a late race charge and Borgeson.
Next weekend will feature one of the biggest weekends of racing at the Red Cedar Speedway during the entire racing season. It will be a doubleheader of racing action with races on both Thursday and Friday nights. On Thursday, August 16th a full show will be presented featuring the Late Models, Modifieds, Super Stocks, Midwest Modifieds and Limited Late Models. Many extra Late Models are expected to be on, tuning up for Friday night’s action as well as extra cars in the other classes in what is an off night for most of the racers normally. Midwest Family Broadcasting will present this program.

Then, on Friday night, August 17th, it will be the much anticipated second annual Mahder 55, featuring the WISSOTA Late Model Wollak Construction Challenge Series cars in action which includes many of the top drivers in all of WISSOTA racing. Modifieds will also be on the card with a full program of racing. Extra money will be on the line for all drivers with this program supported by Seubert Calf Ranches in Dorchester.
