Dalton Zehr Nabs 2013 ASA Member Track National Championship

October 9th, 2013

Daytona Beach, FL- In his first full-season of running at Norway Speedway Dalton Zehr dominated the Late Models division winning nine of 11 races, took the early lead in the 2013 ASA Member Track National Championship standings and never gave it up en route to winning the 2013 ASA Member Track National Championship announced today.

At his best, Zehrs season included a six race win streak and he recorded 10 top-three and nine top-five finishes. He paced the 2013 ASA Member Track National Championship throughout the eight weeks of standings and finished with a 4.3540 average.

Zehr was born in Middleton, Idaho, grew up in Port Orange, Florida and now splits his time between Port Orange and Menominee, Michigan. The 22-year-old rising star earned his first track championship at Norway after running a part-time schedule the previous seven seasons. “This is a great thrill for me and our race team,” said Zehr. “We were unaware of our position within the national championship until the halfway point of the season but once we realized we had a shot we stepped up our efforts and kept our noses to the ground and battled our way to the track title and the national championship.

“I really want to thank my team owner Joe Nechodom of Racetech Chassis for giving me the opportunity to run all season-long at Norway Speedway and also Gene Adcock who brought Joe and me together last off-season. I also owe a special thanks to Gene Coleman for his years of mentoring; I don’t think I would be a champion without Gene’s guidance.”

It is also the first National Championship for Norway Speedway, a slightly banked one-third mile asphalt oval located at the Dickinson County Fairgrounds in Norway, Michigan. The track, originally built as a dirt track in 1942, was blacktopped in 1979. Racing is held on Friday evenings from mid-May through Labor Day weekend when the champions are crowned during the fair.

“This is great recognition for Dalton and all of us at Norway Speedway,” said Caleb Fulcher, the treasurer for the Dickinson County Racing Association. “As a club run venue we are very proud of the great car ounts and strong competition we offer race fans each week. It feels good to share this great news with all of our board members.

“It is a pleasure to be a part of the ASA racing family and our association with ASA has made a difference for us as a weekly racing facility.”

The final 2013 ASA Member Track National Championship standings include the only four track champions who recorded an
average of 2.90 or Better:

Dalton Zehr, Norway Speedway 4.3540
Ryan Stiltner, Lonesome Pine Raceway – 3.7791
Shelby Stroebel, Meridian Speedway 2.9564
Mark Mackesy, State Park Speedway 2.9486

“It is always an exciting day when we get to call the ASA Member Track National Champion and this year’s champion, Dalton Zehr, is well-deserved,” said Dennis Huth, ASA president. “I’ve gotten to know Dalton and his family and I know the efforts they have put into racing and supporting the ASA program so I want to congratulate not only Dalton but the entire Zehr family.

“I also want to salute Caleb Fulcher and the entire team at Norway Speedway who can now proudly wave an ASA Member Track National Championship banner for being the home of this year’s champion.”

Though he led the ASA Member Track National Championship from its 2013 debut on August 9, he faced a tough battle from Ryan Stiltner (Lonesome Pine Raceway), Shelby Stroebel (Meridian Speedway) and Mark Mackesy down the stretch.

With Zehr, Stiltner was the only driver to be in the ASA Member Track National Championship standings each week in 2013 and finished with a 3.7791 average. The four year veteran at Lonesome Pine Raceway ran 16 times with seven wins, 12 top-three’s and 15 top five’s in the Late Models at the 3/8-mile asphalt oval in Coeburn, VA.

Stroebel, who joined the standings in week three (August 23), visited Victory Lane 10 times in 13 races with 11 top-three finishes running the Modifieds division at the 1/4-mile asphalt oval in downtown Meridian, ID. The 2012 ASA Member Track National Champion has won 27 of 30 features, including all 14 in 2012, dating back to late in the 2011 season. His 2013 ASA Member Track National Championship average was 2.9564.

Mackesy was one of three Jeremy Lepak and Ryan Hinner were the others — State Park Speedway drivers to hold a position in the standings at various times in 2013.He ran 10 times, earned two wins, finished second three times and recorded six top- five finishes at the 1/4-mile asphalt oval just outside Wausau, WI in the Super Late Models division and earned a 2.9486 average.

While racing with his family in Florida where they moved when he was 11 years old, Zehr’s skills, talent and demeanor caught the eye of Gene Coleman of Coleman Racing Products. Through the years it developed to a point where Zehr began driving Coleman’s personal race cars and they ran numerous events at what Coleman considers his home track, Norway Speedway. During the 2012 off-season Zehr was approached by Joe Nechodom of Racetech Chassis to pilot their house car and compete for the 2013 championship.

Although his 2014 plans have not been finalized, Zehr confirmed he will be back at Norway Speedway for select events and he will be running the entire TUNDRA Super Late Model touring series after finishing runner-up in the points the past two seasons.

Speednetdirect.com, for the sixth year in a row, tabulated the National Championship standings. Using a proprietary formula that creates an average based on wins, finishing positions, number of cars passed, car counts and events. The driver who wins their track championship and has the highest average over the other ASA Member Track champions won the 2012 ASA Member Track National Championship.

2 Track Openings and a Track Championship Hightlight This Weekend’s ASA Member Track Schedule

October 5th, 2013

Daytona Beach, FL – While a number of ASA Member Tracks wind down there season including Meridian (ID) Speedway celebrating its Championship Night on Saturday, ASA-sanctioned Havasu 95 Speedway opens its season this weekend and Adirondack International Speedway will be open this weekend in anticipation of a full 2014 season.

Havasu 95 Speedway runs a winter schedule to avoid the grueling desert heat during the “traditional” racing season. Considered one of the most scenic tracks, the ¼-mile asphalt is located in Lake Havasu City, Arizona which sits along the Colorado River.

Havasu 95 Speedway’s regular Saturday evening program includes Late Models, Modifieds, Legends, Pure Street Stocks, Factory Stocks and Bandoleros with a number of special touring series as well competing October through May.

The ASA-affiliated Adirondack International Speedway, a ½-mile semi-banked paved oval in Beaver Falls, NY, will re-open after four years with a full day of racing action on October 6. The schedule will feature Late Models, Super Stock, Trucks, Sport Compact, Legends, Thunderstocks, Modifieds and the Big Ten Super Stocks

Longtime track owner Paul Lyndacker dealt with numerous issues surrounding the speedway but never gave up and recently had a breakthrough.

Four years of no racing and little upkeep forced Lyndacker into overdrive landscaping, painting, cleaning and general maintenance work in the past week but that work was eased with the response from dozens of area volunteers. “This is just like a blessing,” said Lyndacker. “It’s been four years and it’s been a rough road through those four years.

“We’re very pleased and I didn’t realize how much enthusiasm there is. The amount of people willing to help and just wanting to see the place back up and running makes it feel real.”

This weekend (October 5-6) is a Member Weekend at the ASA-sanctioned Inde Motorsports Ranch, the highly technical 2.75 mile road course in Willcox, Arizona.

Coeburn, VA; Shangri-La II Motor Speedway in Tioga Center, NY; Skagit Speedway in
Burlington, WA; Virginia Motor Speedway in Jamaica, VA; and Yakima (WA) Speedway all
feature championship battles on Saturday night.

Of particular note is Aaron Paulsen’s effort for an unprecedented three track
championships at I-25 Speedway. He is on the verge of winning the Grand American
Modified championship for the third straight season and has already secured the
Super Late Model division championship while also battling for the Sportsman
championship.

The ASA Western Winged Sprintcars close out their season on Saturday at Rocky
Mountain Raceways in the first-ever 200-lap Winged Sprint car race in the state of
Utah. The Salt Lake City 200 presented by Promotional Products Unlimited will feature sprint cars from all over the USA running 200-laps in a four-segment race
that will allow for fuel, tire and adjustments at each break.

“Our inaugural Salt City 200 should be one of the biggest Sprint races in the
country,” said Mike Eames, general manager at Rocky Mountain Raceways. “The Sprint
cars are the fastest machines that compete on our America First Credit Union Super
Oval and I look forward to all of the teams being here. It will be a landmark event
and one that I hope continues to build for years to come.”

The Top 5 in points entering the season finale are: Johnny Giesler with 524 points,
Andy Alberding (509 points), Bryan Warf (437), Matt Mansell (431) and Jeff
Montgomery (390).

After merging British Columbia’s two main Sportsman Racing Series – The OK Tire
Sportsman Series and the ASA Advance Testing BC Late Model Tour – into the ASA OK
Tires Sportsman Series presented by Advance Testing, the series closes its season
where they started, Motoplex Speedway in Vernon, British Columbia.

According to series officials the merger achieved its goals to increase car counts
at tracks throughout the province while building the Sportsman class back to its
former strength.

As it did at each race in 2013, series officials will be offering a $12,000 this
weekend and include travel money paid to competitors coming from all over the
province.

Dalton Zehr Remains Atop 2013 ASA Member Track National Championship Race

September 8th, 2013

Daytona Beach, FL– Since the 2013 ASA Member Track National Championship standings debuted five weeks ago there has been one constant, Norway (MI) Speedway’s Dalton Zehr atop the standings.

Zehr runs the Late Model division at the 1/3-mile asphalt oval and currently sports a 3.4881 average.

A new face is Jeremy Lepak of State Park Speedway debuting in the national standings. He is the third different driver from the Wausau, WI track to be in the 2013 ASA Member Track National Championship Top-5 standings since they debuted five weeks ago. Lepak jumped into second with a 2.8444 national championship average running the Super Late Models at the 1/4mile asphalt oval.

Positions 3-5 remain unchanged this week with Ryan Stiltner (Lonesome Pine Raceway), Brian Blevins (Newport Speedway) and Shelby Stroebel (Meridian Speedway).

Due to a spring and summer that caused significant weather issues for many track operators, these standings are still considered early in the season and it is anticipated that significant change will be seen in the coming weeks.

The top five in ASA Member Track National Championship standings are:

Dalton Zehr, Norway Speedway – 3.4881
Jeremy Lepak, State Park Speedway – 2.8444
Ryan Stiltner, Lonesome Pine Raceway – 2.5129

Stroebel of Meridian (ID) Speedway remains fifth nationally with a 1.5633 average after joining the standings three weeks ago. The 2012 ASA Member Track National Champion runs the Modified division at the ¼-mile asphalt oval.

Throughout the season, drivers competing in the premiere divisions at eligible ASA Member Tracks are in the running for the 2013 ASA Member Track National Championship. In order to have a chance for the national title, a driver must first win their 2013 track championship.

Speednetdirect.com, for the sixth year in a row, will tabulate the National Championship standings. Using a proprietary formula that creates an average based on wins, finishing positions, number of cars passed, car counts and events. The driver who wins their track championship and has the highest average over the other ASA Member Track champions will win the 2013 ASA Member Track National Championship.

Daytona Beach, FL – Norway (MI) Speedway’s Dalton Zehr sits atop the 2013 ASA Member Track National Championship points battle for the third consecutive week but the Top 5 now has two new names including a driver making the jump not only into the group but leaping all the way into second place.

Mark Mackesy, who was in the Top 5 after the first week’s standings dropped out last week only to jump back in this week and wrestle second place from Lonesome Pine Raceway’s Ryan Stiltner. Also joining the Top 5 this week is Meridian (ID) Speedway’s Shelby Stroebel, the 2012 ASA Member Track National Champion.

Due to a spring and summer that caused significant weather issues for many track operators, these standings are still considered early in the season and it is anticipated that significant change will be seen in the coming weeks.

Scott Aumen Takes Daffodil Cup; ASA Member Track Results

August 21st, 2013

Daytona Beach, FL – Scott Aumen rewrote the record books in a big way at the P&R Western Star Daffodil Cup at Western Speedway Friday and Saturday smashing the track qualifying record en route to becoming the first driver to win five Daffodil Cup races.

The 42nd running of the prestigious Daffodil Cup, the oldest sprint car race in Canada, featured the ASA Canadian-American Western Winged Sprintcars and ASA Northwest Sprintcar Racing Association headlining the weekend. The winner of the Daffodil Cup is the driver who accumulates the most points from the Friday and Saturday nights races.

On Friday, Richie Larson and Sierra Jackson shared the front row for the start of the 30-lap Winged Sprint Car Feature event with 20 drivers in the field.

By lap 4 Aumen was charging toward the front racing into the fifth position and by lap 8 had moved into third settling in behind Jackson for several laps. With Larson holding the lead and the laps clicking down Aumen pulled his patented
slide on Jackson on lap 26 and passed her for second and shortly after she pulled her car to the pits with a mechanical problem that seemed to plague the Idaho driver all night.

Aumen continued his march forward and was all over Larson until the white flag dropped when he flashed to the inside and grabbed the lead, the only lap he led all night but it was the important one as he took the win with Larson holding second, Darren Yates third, with Guy Barrett and Matt Mansell rounding out the top five positions.

The prediction of rain did not materialize on day two and there was no better position to be in than the pole for the start of the 40-lap Winged Sprint Car feature. Darren Yates, sporting a brand new car, found himself pacing the field and
sharing the front row with Wade Bland but that was short lived.

Yates was tagged in the first turn of the opening lap that spun him a couple of times and Guy Barrett tried to avoid the spin but clipped the wall with the night ending for both drivers.

On the restart, Giesler got the jump and quickly went into the lead followed by
Bland and Matt Mansell by lap 2.

By lap 6 Jeff “The Hurricane” Montgomery moved into fourth and was on the move followed by Aumen. At lap 10 Montgomery had taken the second spot and started to reel in Giesler who was in the lead by a good margin.

On lap 20 Montgomery slipped to the inside of Giesler and blew by for the lead in Turn 3 and worked his way to a comfortable lead leaving Bland, Mansell and Aumen to battle for positions.

When the checkered flag fell Montgomery had won by a five second plus margin over Giesler in second followed by Bland, Aumen and Mansell in the 19 car field. Nick Wood, who suffered a bad crash on Friday night, and Sierra Jackson, who had engine failure, could not enter Saturday’s run.

Aumen’s record setting Saturday night began with him smashing the track record of 13:62 when he turned a 13: 497 at approximately 115 MPH. With his Friday win and Saturday’s fourth place finish Aumen became the first driver to win five Daffodil Cup races, one more than the late, great Hall-of-Famers Billy Foster and Roy Smith. “This is what we came here for, and we got it,” said Aumen. “I couldn’t be prouder.”

ASA Tours, ASA Member Tracks Schedule for August 8-11th

August 9th, 2013

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – The ASA OK Tire Sportsman Series presented by Advance Testing, ASA Pro Trucks and a host of ASA Member Tracks headline ASA racing action around the country this weekend.

This weekend is the fifth and penultimate race on the 2013 ASA OK Tire Sportsman Series presented by Advanced Testing in year one of the merged British Columbia-based sportsman series. The series visits Agassiz Speedway, a quarter-mile paved oval in Agassiz, BC on August 10 with competitors battling for the $12,000 purse.

Korbin Thomas enters the weekend atop the championship point standings and is the winner of one previous race this season. Matt Stephenson, who won the season’s first two events is second in the point standings followed by Logan Jewel, Ian Graham and Dave Olson, who won the series last outing in Quesnel.

For the second consecutive year the ASA Pro Trucks are part of the Clash of the Titans at ASA sanctioned Rocky Mountain Raceways in West Valley City, UT.

The ASA Pro Trucks and Monster Trucks are teaming up for a two-day (Aug. 10-11) show with Sharp Transportation presenting the truck portion of the weekend.

Drew Reitsma enters the weekend as the favorite coming off a commanding win in at Magic Valley Speedway last month. The “Iron Man” completed every lap of the 2012 season only to see his streak snapped after being collected by a lapped truck while fighting for the lead in the 2013 season opener.

Reitsma enters Rocky Mountain Raceways sitting third in the season standings.

Hannah Newhouse leads the points coming into the event and will have local favorite Mark Ith Jr. wheeling her truck on Saturday while planning to compete on Sunday. Johnny Pierre hopes to turn his luck around after leading the point standings for most of the season. Pierre found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time early in the Magic Valley race finishing 41 laps behind with a heavily damaged truck.

Defending ASA Pro Trucks champion Scott Luttmer sits fourth in the standings but with other commitments Sunday he is currently not scheduled to run on Sunday. That just might be the break Alan Larson is looking for. Larson will be hauling not one but four trucks to Rocky Mountain Raceways.

The ASA-sanctioned ProAutoSports visits Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, CA this weekend offering two days of track time on August 10-11, the weekend is hosted by Speed Ventures.

ASA Pro Trucks in Action; Marshfield and Skagit Highlight ASA Member Tracks Schedule this Weekend

July 26th, 2013

DAYTONA BEACH, FL– The ASA Pro Trucks have made the rounds and are back in action this Saturday night as Agri-Service Presents the Sharp Transportation 50 at Magic Valley Speedway.

The ASA Pro Trucks started its 2013 campaign at Magic Valley in April and since that time has visited the superfast Rocky Mountain Raceways for “Horsepower Heaven,” participated in a two-day show at Meridian Speedway for “The Diamond Cup,” the
series debuted at the Atomic Raceway dirt oval where they “Blew up the Dirt” and were the main event for “Trucks and Trailers” at Pocatello Raceway.

In the last visit to Magic Valley Johnny Pierre came home with the win and the point lead, which he held until the Pocatello Raceway outing. Hannah Newhouse took the win and the points lead at Pocatello after chopping away at the lead with each event and comes into the Agri-Service event five points ahead of Pierre. In what should be one of the most exciting nights in the history of Marshfield Motor Speedway, fans will be on the edge of their seats when they see 43 Super Late Models roar around the half-mile- track Thursday night in celebration of Dick Trickle.

The Earth Inc. Yellow River Racing Series event, dubbed The “White Knight” 99 + 1 feature event presented by Seubert Calf Ranches is a tribute to one of the greatest drivers to ever turn left in a race car. Trickle, who passed away earlier this year, won over 1200 features in his career and earned the title as America’s winningest driver.

Marshfield Motor Speedway, an ASA Member Track, is looking to put 43 cars in the starting field for the race in what would be the most Super Late Models to ever start a feature event in Wisconsin short track history.

The special “Thursday Night Thunder” event is the second leg of the Earth Inc. Yellow River Racing Series. Steve Holzhausen holds a small lead over Eugene Gregorich, Jr., after the first of three legs of the series.

Former NASCAR driver Rich Bickle, Jr., who has earned more than 400 feature wins including five Snowball Derby feature wins, is among the entries and earlier this year notched a win at Slinger in the Trickle Memorial race.

One of the most exciting events each year at Skagit Speedway is the Bob’s Burgers & Brew Summer Nationals (formerly called ‘The 360 Nationals’). This two day event will draw cars from all over the west coast and western Canada offering the top sprint car drivers competing in the super tough 360 sprint car division. The winner, the toughest of the toughest, will be crowned the 2013 Summer Nationals Champion and sent home with a $12,000 check.

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – Three ASA Tours – The ASA OK Tire Sportsman Series Presented by Advance Testing, the ASA Western Winged Sprint Cars and the ASA Northwest Sprint Car Racing Association – are on the track this weekend with a host of ASA Member Tracks also in action.

The ASA OK Tire Sportsman Series Presented by Advance Testing is in Quesnel, British Columbia at Gold Pan Speedway, a slightly-banked 1/3-mile oval that competitors will run 100 laps on for the $12,000 purse.

Gold Pan Speedway is the fourth of six races on the 2013 ASA OK Tire Sportsman Series Presented by Advance Testing.

The top five in 2013 championship points are Korbin Thomas (258); Matt Stephenson (223); Ian Graham (223); Mark Berriau (213); and Logan Jewel (188). Thomas won the last race at PGARA Speedway with Matt Stephenson winning the first two races of the season.

The two series will run the 40-lap Hein/Diemert Memorial on Friday night and the 50-lap Art Pollard/Vern Dykstra Memorial on Saturday evening.

Oregon has a rich history of open wheel racers, and the races honor and celebrate four men four men that helped lay the ground work for the future of sprint car racing. Don Hein, Casey Diemert, Art Pollard and Vern Dykstra are all very well known names in the region and each of them touched the racing community and local community in his own way.

Saturday marks the debut of the Western Winged Sprint Cars in the prestigious Pollard Memorial. The race is run in honor of the former Indianapolis 500 competitor who died at the age of 46 in a practice crash at the Brickyard on May 12, 1973.

Local favorites Matt Hein, Andy Alberding and Rick Brown all have a special stake in this particular race, not only is this the home track for these drivers, but there is an emotional element attached for each of them.

Fan favorite Sierra Jackson, along with fellow Idaho drivers Johnny Geisler and Bryan Warf would love to take the trophy back east with them. Utah’s Ryan Burdett is expected to make the long haul from Salt Lake City. Ron and Ritchie Larson, Matt Mansell, Guy Barrett, Dave Salamandick and Scott Aumen are expected to make the tow across the border from Canada.

Brown Takes NSSA/WWSC Event at Stateline Speedway; ASA Member Tracks Results

July 3rd, 2013

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – Most race car drivers would prefer to keep all the contents of their racing attire. Saturday night, Rick Brown gladly gave away one of his shoes after winning the annual “Super Shoe Show” sprint car race at Stateline Speedway, co-sanctioned by the Northwest Sprintcar Racing Association and Western Winged Sprint Cars, both of whom run under the ASA-sanctioned banner.

The 59-year-old Brown, who led all 40 laps of Saturday’s main event, ended up putting his shoe on the event’s permanent trophy, where it expected to remain until next year’s event.

Even better for the 14-time open wheel champion, it broke a long dry spell. Brown couldn’t remember exactly when, but he said it was “a few years ago” at Oregon’s Douglas County Speedway the last time he won a main event.

The two tours will race together again for a two-night show on July 19-20 at Douglas County Speedway in Roseburg, Ore.

The following recaps the weekend action from ASA Member Tracks and previews the six events running at five tracks – Southern Oregon Speedway (July 1, 3), State Park Speedway (July 3); Meridian Speedway (July 4), Shangri-La II Motor Speedway (July 4) and Yakima Speedway (July 4) — through July 4:

Allard Wins Dirt Cup

June 27th, 2013

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – A big weekend of ASA Member Track action was highlighted by a record fourth Dirt Cup title for Jonathan Allard at Skagit Speedway and a chase for a $15,000 bonus under the control State Park Speedway’s Mark Mackesy
after his Thursday night victory at the track’s Ropa’s Pizza Flip Merwin Memorial.

The 42^nd Annual Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup, a three-day $20,000 to win event, was forced to two days after the opening night was rained out.

Allard, of Chico, CA, started his march to another title Friday night qualifying second quickest and finished fourth in the “A” Main after earning the race’s hard charger award gaining 10 spots.

Saturday’s matinee racing program saw Allard set fast time and finish sixth in the 30-lap feature and once again earned the hard charger award after gaining nine positions.

Allard started the evening program winning the “A” Scramble and giving him the pole for the $20,000 to win feature which he led all 40 laps holding off Murphy, Abreu, Travis Rilat and Kyle Hirst.

He joined Jason Meyers, Rico Abreu, Peter Murphy and Shane Stewart as the top five in points after the first night of racing.

Mark Mackesy held off two late restarts to win the Flip Merwin Memorial for the second time in three years Thursday night at State Park Speedway, an ASA Member Track, allowing the veteran driver to have the advantage in the inaugural Auto
Select Triple XX Challenge.

Mackesy secured the 10th Anniversary Flip Merwin Memorial and joined Chris Weinkauf as the only multiple-winners of the race.

The win over a veteran lot of Wisconsin’s leading Late Model drivers allows Mackesy to have the opportunity to take home the $15,000 offer to any driver that can win the Ropa’s Pizza Flip Merwin Memorial, the Newsline Nine Detjens Memorial 125 and the Lodi Memorial.

The Auto Select XXX Challenge marks the first time State Park Speedway has put together an event of this magnitude as it draws some of the biggest names in Wisconsin short track racing.

In additional to a possible $16,000 pay day for one driver, three drivers will each take home extra cash in an elimination style challenge. Each of the three events will start 24 cars. The top 12 finishers in Thursday’s race are now eligible to continue the challenge and receive bonus money.

Following the second event, the Newsline Nine Detjens Memorial 125, the top six finishers of those 12 will continue to be eligible going into the final event, the Lodi Memorial Race. At the conclusion of the Lodi Memorial race the top three
finishers of those six will receive bonus money of $1,000, $750 and $500 respectively.

The ASA Pro Trucks head to Atomic Motor Raceway, the 1/3-mile dirt oval, in Atomic City, ID for the series debut on a dirt track in a race billed as “Blowing up the Dirt.”

The fifth of 12 races on the 2013 ASA Pro Trucks schedule opened with a Friday practice and the driver that benefited the most was Johnny “Be Good” Newhouse, who took what he learned from the practice and applied to his race day setup taking the win in his heat race and main event.

“The practice yesterday was huge for us,” said Newhouse. “The truck was really starting to go away and Kendal (Woll) was all over me, I made it as wide as I could. This dirt racing is a blast.”

Woll slid his way to a second place finish in the main event after battling with two Newhouse’s in the final six laps only to fall short by less than a truck length. While trying to make a move on Newhouse Woll felt pressure from the race winner’s daughter, Hannah Newhouse, with a couple of bump and run moves during the last three laps that had fans on their feet cheering as the three drivers swapped paint all the way around the track.

Wyoming’s Big Country Speedway to Continue with ASA Member Track Program

May 8th, 2013

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – Big Country Speedway, the 1/5-mile asphalt oval in Cheyenne, WY, that has been a part of the ASA Member Track Program since 2010 has renewed its affiliation with ASA for 2013.

Under the management of the Wyoming Auto Racing Club (WARC) since last season, Big Country Speedway is one of eight racetracks in the state. Wyoming’s only asphalt oval welcomes a variety of divisions every Saturday night featuring Super Stocks, Late Models, Grand American Modifieds, Mod 4’s and Junkyard Warriors in addition to visiting classes, High Plains Modifieds, Super Lite Trucks, Legends and CARC Mod Coupes.

Additionally, the facility expanded its schedule in 2012 working with local drifter groups to host demonstration events at the facility.

The Big Country Speedway, which was built in 1953 as a dirt track and converted to asphalt less than a year later, runs its schedule May through October. The 2013 season opened last Saturday night.

“Since taking over Big Country Speedway in 2012 we have laid the groundwork for a great future and ASA is a significant part of our plans,” Pamela Schliske, WARC President said. “We have enjoyed our ASA relationship but more importantly, our
competitors have enjoyed being part of the ASA Member Track program. The program gives our drivers the opportunity to compete with other ASA tracks and we felt as a group that it would be valuable to stay with ASA Racing and work together to make this track even more successful moving forward.”

WARC is a non-profit organization that provides friendly and safe racing environment for its members, who have combined their passion for racing and community involvement. In addition to operating Big Country Speedway, the organization hosts
an assortment of car shows throughout the year.

“ASA is proud to continue its relationship with Big Country Speedway, the first and only ASA Member Track in the Cowboy State,” Dennis Huth, ASA President said. “We look forward to continuing to work with Pam, the board members, and competitors in helping Big Country Speedway with a successful 2013 season.”

More information can be found at: http://warconline.com/big-country-speedway/

The ASA Member Track program is comprised of dirt and asphalt short tracks along with road courses around the United States and Canada, as well as a variety of regional and national touring series. Drivers from participating ASA Member Tracks across the United States choose one of their divisions as their premiere divisions. Those drivers in the premiere division, who are ASA members in good standing, will compete at their ASA Member Track to first win their track championship. Once they accomplish that goal, they will then be matched up against the other premiere division champions to determine the National Champion.

Sports Insurance Specialists, LLC (SIS), a full service sports and special events insurance brokerage based in Fort Wayne, Indiana, is the official insurance provider for ASA. ASA members in good standing are eligible for a $500,000 Excess Medical Benefit as well as a $20,000 Accidental Death and Dismemberment Benefit. SIS provides a comprehensive participant/accident program along with full participant liability, spectator liability, and facility insurance coverage for all ASA Racing events and venues across the United States.

As an added benefit, the ASA Advantage Benefit Plan debuted in 2012 and allows ASA members, who don’t have insurance to find affordable individual and family plans in their respective areas. The ASA Advantage Benefit Plan offers health, term life, simplified issue, dental, prescription, small business and even pet insurance.

ASA Member Track Promoter on State Basketball’s Big Stage

March 14th, 2013

DAYTONA BEACH, FL– For Wayne Brevik, this Friday night he is not waiting for the green flag to drop but watching for the tip-off of the Wisconsin High School Girls Division One semi-final basketball game.

The Promoter of Marshfield Motor Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Marshfield, WI, will be on the court to officiate his eighth State Tournament game.

“When you get a call from the WIAA (Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association) to officiate a State Tournament game, it is a big thing for officials,” Brevik said. “The WIAA only has the best rated officials work these games and it means a lot when you get that opportunity.”

Looking back to his seven previous appearances, one thing stood out for Brevik. “I think I may be the first official to referee a State Tournament game at four different venues,” he recalled.

This will be the first time that the girls’ tournament will be contested at the Resch Center in Green Bay, WI. Brevik officiated previous Tournament games at the UW-Field House, Kohl Center and the Coliseum at the Alliant Energy Center; all three venues are located in Madison, WI.

To date, Brevik has officiated over 1825 high school basketball games and around 350 NCAA Division II & III games.

Brevik will be officiating the Division I semi-final game that is scheduled to start at 6:30pm central time this Friday night.

All of the games are available on television via the WIAA television network. Plus, the games will be streamed online at www.wiaawi.org.

ASA Truck Series and Havasu 95 Speedway Helped the Rise of Kwasnieski’s Racing Career

February 18th, 2013

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – Back in April 2010, the ASA Truck Series opened their season under the ownership of Todd & Lisa McLauchlan. Their first event took place at Havasu 95 Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Lake Havasu City, AZ. The winner of that race was a14-year-old who had a last name that many didn’t know how to pronounce, and had a major sponsor.

Fast forward to 2013 and Dylan Kwasniewski is becoming a household name. Last year, he became the youngest NASCAR K&N Pro Series West champion and is now looking at moving up to the higher levels when he turns 18.

Kwasniewski started racing in the ASA Truck Series in 2009 and started out the 2010 season by winning the first two races at Havasu 95 Speedway and I-10 Speedway. He followed that up with a fifth place finish at Irwindale and a second place finish at The Bullring. After that his career shot out of a cannon. Looking back, he remembers how the ASA Truck Series really helped his driving skills. “The ASA Truck Series is awesome! It is a good stepping-stone to go from Legends into the trucks and learn how to run bigger racecars like that,” Kwasniewski recalled. “It was good to get a feel in these style of heavier cars and trucks, after racing Legends, before going up to the big boys. It taught me a lot about car
control and getting used to the style of racecars I would be driving in the future.”

He would encourage any future young drivers to look at the ASA Truck Series. “I would say definitely get into it. It was a good series when I was competing with them before moving up. They have good competition and I learned a lot from it,”
Kwasniewski said. “It was a good stepping-stone without jumping too far ahead into the next series. It really helped me get acclimated to the bigger cars.”

Kwasniewski also appreciates the effort that Todd & Lisa McLauchlan have put into the series. “They are great. I see them at Havasu from time to time. I wish I had the time to go and run a couple of more races. They are great people and they treat their drivers and fans real well. It is a well-run series.”

“Dylan is a perfect example of what the ASA Truck Series is all about. Our series is focused on helping propel the careers of young drivers like Dylan,” Lisa McLauchlan said. “Todd and I remember when Dylan won the first race we ran at Havasu. We are proud that we were able to use our series to help further develop his career. We wish him the best and are grateful to call him an ASA Truck Series Alumni.”

“Our series truly allows young talent to grow into mature racers,” Todd McLauchlan said. “We are proud to know Dylan and see the success he is having at his age, especially after winning the K&N Pro Series West championship last year. We
appreciate that he realizes how much the ASA Truck Series has helped him move up to the higher levels. We encourage drivers to use our series to help them move through the ranks like what Dylan has done. He is proof of what our series can do for young drivers.”

Along with the ASA Truck Series, Havasu 95 Speedway also played a major role in his development. “I did an interview on Showtime and they asked me what was my favorite track growing up and I said Havasu 95 Speedway. It was the track that I ran at the most because I wasn’t old enough to run at The Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway,” Kwasniewski explained. “The track is great. It taught me a lot about car control because it is such a small track. You definitely have to be easy on your tires there. Bill and Greg run a great show and treat everyone well. Whenever I can get out there to run a race, I do.”

“Dylan is a real good kid and man can he turn the wheel of a racecar,” Bill Rohzon, Havasu 95 Speedway Promoter said. “It just amazes me with the talent he has and it is great that he is having the success he is having today. He knows he is always welcome to come and race with us anytime his schedule allows.”

In 2013, Kwasniewski is running for the K&N Pro Series championship. There are also plans in the works to run some ARCA events with the hope of getting into the Nationwide Series in 2014.

North Florida Speedway Joins the ASA Member Track Program

January 11th, 2013

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – ASA Racing is proud to welcome North Florida Speedway, located in Lake City, FL, to the ASA Member Track program. The 3/8-mile clay oval becomes the third track in Florida to become part of the popular short track focused sanctioning body.

“We are very happy to be joining the ASA family,” Phil Guadagno, co-owner of North Florida Speedway exclaimed. “The big thing we like about their program is that their membership program is available to all of our racers in every division. We think that it is a really neat deal, and I think our competitors will enjoy being part of a national sanctioning body.”

Phil, along with his wife Elizabeth, purchased the facility located three miles south of Lake City, FL over eight years ago. During that time, they have made many improvements to North Florida Speedway. Last week, they installed new aluminum bleachers in time for their season opener on January 25-26.

Elizabeth said that they have made improvements with lighting, track surface, installing concrete walls and more. “We are very proud of the improvements we have made to the track,” Elizabeth Guadagno said. “When we bought it, it was almost a junkyard and we have invested a lot back into the track to make this a very family friendly facility.”

For both Phil and Elizabeth, the decision to join the ASA Member Track program was easy for multiple reasons. “One thing that really stood out for me was the extra protection that is available to our drivers through the ASA membership,” Phil said. “As a Promoter, it eases my mind to know that our competitors have very good protection while they compete at North Florida Speedway.”

“I am excited about joining the ASA Member Track program because I feel that it will help take North Florida Speedway up to that next level,” Elizabeth said. “Phil and I feel that we are doing something right for the track. Plus, we really appreciate the flexibility that Dennis Huth and everyone made at ASA Racing to make this win-win partnership work for both of us.”

Throughout the year, the TQ Lates, Pure Stocks, Street Stocks, Sportsman, Box Stocks, Limited Mods, Open Wheel Modifieds Late Models, Florida Mini Sprints Association and more will challenge the 3/8-mile clay oval on Saturday nights.

“We are proud to welcome Phil, Elizabeth, their staff and competitors of North Florida Speedway to the ASA Member Track family,” Dennis Huth, ASA Racing President said. “Our conversations with Phil and Elizabeth have been very enthusiastic and we are pleased to do what he can to help their vision of taking North Florida Speedway up to a higher level. Like we do with all of our tracks, we were able to put together a unique program what will work for them and help achieve their goals. Welcome and we look forward to a long partnership together.”

North Florida Speedway will kick off their 2013 season on January 25-26 with the 2013 Nationals for the Locals.

Two ASA Member Track Promoters are Finalists for RPM Promoter of the Year

January 6th, 2013

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – ASA Racing congratulates Steve Beitler and Harold Crook as finalists for the 2012 Racing Promotion Monthly Auto Racing Promoter of the Year award. Each won their respective region award to be a finalist.

With their nominations, ASA Racing is proud to have two well-respected ASA Member Track promoters nominated for this prestigious award. Each track has a great staff supporting these individuals.

Beitler operates Skagit Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Algers, WA. This is the third time in the last four years that he has won the Rocky Mountain West Region award.

“It is really gratifying. It just shows that hard work does pay off,” Beitler said. “I’m blessed to have a great staff out here at Skagit Speedway. I get the credit because I am the promoter, but I have a staff that backs me up every day. Without those people, there is no way that we would ever get these awards. This may be a promoter award, but it is for the whole track.”

Crook is a first-time nominee won the Southeastern Region award. He promotes Lonesome Pine Raceway, an ASA Member Track in Coeburn, VA, that celebrated their 40^th anniversary this past season.

“I am honored just to be mentioned with folks who have won this in the past along with the nominees for this year,” Crook said earlier today. “We had a great season last year and this is a great icing on the cake.

“You see people get nominated like this all the time and you need to be in the right place at the right time. I have promoted at other tracks, but Lonesome Pine has always been my home and it is great to celebrate our season with this honor.”

“Steve Beitler and Harold Crook are two great friends who deserve this recognition,” Dennis Huth, ASA Racing President said. “Both are great examples of the fine promoters we have operating our ASA Member Tracks all across the United States. We are very honored to have them up for the 2012 Auto Racing Promoter of the Year. Congratulations to both of them along with all of the RPM nominees from the entire ASA Racing family.”

The 2012 Auto Racing Promoter of the Year will be announced on February 18, 2013 at the Plaza Resort & Spa in Daytona Beach, FL during the 40^th Annual RPM Speedweek National Workshop.

ASA Racing Congratulates Their 2012 Champions

December 30th, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – As ASA Racing prepares to close the books on 2012, they would like to take an opportunity to recognize all of their champions at their ASA Member Tracks and those competing in their sanctioned series.

“This is a great example of our motto ‘We Build Champions’ within our ASA Racing family,” Dennis Huth, ASA President said. “This year, we are proud to recognized 163 different drivers who won a championship at our ASA Member Tracks and sanctioned series. We congratulate all of them and are proud to list them on the historic list of ASA champions.”

ASA SANCTIONED SERIES

ASA Advanced Testing British Columbia Late Model Tour – Dave Hemrich Hemrich’s win in the Reg Midgley Memorial Canada 200 was what he needed to win the 2012 championship. He came into the season finale event 35 points behind Tom Berrow in the standings. Hemrich took the checkered flag while Berrow finished ninth allowing Hemrich to win the title by five points.

ASA Pro Truck Series – Scott Luttmer
Luttmer won the championship by a single point over defending champion Jerry Rice. Rice did everything he could by winning the final race of the season, but Luttmer finished fourth in the feature event at Magic Valley Speedway to narrowly win the championship.

ASA Northwest Sprintcar Racing Association (NSRA) – Andy Alberding Alberding became a three-time champion this season in the asphalt winged-sprint car series. He had a good point lead over former champion Matt Hein and defending champion Sierra Jackson. In their season finale at Douglas County Speedway, Alberding set a new track record in qualifying. All he had to do to secure the championship was take the green flag.

ASA Truck Series – Jeremiah Wagner
The 19-year-old driver from Las Vegas, NV had a very consistent season to earning his first championship. He consistently finished in the top ten where he had two wins and three second place finishes. His consistency allowed him to wrap-up the title prior to the season finale.

ASA Midwest Tour – Jonathan Eilen
The veteran driver from Hampton, MN had one win, seven top-five and 10 top-ten finishes in 12 starts this past season. He also got married and is expecting their first child in the spring.

ASA Midwest Truck Tour – James Swan
This season, the Pell Lake, WI driver decided to take on a new challenge by competing in the tough truck tour. It didn’t take long for the multi Mid-American Stock Car Series champion to figure out how to win. In nine starts, he had three wins and finished in the top-five in the other six to easily de-throne Jerry Wood.

Dustin Rumley Makes a Successful Comeback at ASA’s Ace Speedway

December 1st, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – If you asked Dustin Rumley that his last two seasons in the Late Model division at Ace Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Altamahaw, NC, were night and day, he would easily say yes. This season he captured his second championship in three years and taking down the defending ASA Member Track National Champion.

“Yeah, the two seasons were different,” Rumley said when he was looking back. “In 2011, I was not sure I even wanted to race anymore. In 2012, I knew I had a great shot at winning every week.”

The 23-year-old from McLeansville, NC won the Late Model championship at Ace Speedway in 2010 and almost won the ASA Member Track National Championship. In 2011, it was a year where he recorded no wins and struggled all year.

He came into 2012 eager to move forward and forget about 2011. He certainly did by recording five feature wins, 12 top-five and 15 top-ten finishes in 15 starts. He won the championship by beating Ace greats like Rodney Cook and defending ASA Member Track National Champion Barry Beggarly.

Rumley finished fourth in the ASA Member Track National Championship with an average of 4.5325.

“I really don’t know what changed,” Rumley said about the 2012 season. “I just had great luck and hit on great setups. We put a lot of hard work into it and it paid off.”

It also meant a lot to him to beat Beggarly for the track championship. “That is what everybody wants to do,” Rumley said. “I mean he’s the greatest of all time and it means a lot to beat him.”

Beggarly wasn’t only his toughest competition as Ace was packed each week with a stellar field of Late Model drivers. “It is tough as ever and I mean we had about all the past champions racing with us,” Rumley said. “But, I was still always up
front and we had some other big guns in the show.”

Next season will be a memorable one as he is engaged to marry Ashley Coleman in May 2013. But he also plans to be racing as well.

Rumley has great support behind him. Along with his fiancée, he thanks is mom, dad and the rest of his family and fans for their support. He also would like to thank Greg Marlow, Billy Banks, Bryant Hardware, Griffin Graphics, WP Shocks, Sprinkle Gas and Country Hills Golf Course.

“Congratulations to Dustin Rumley on his great season at Ace Speedway,” Dennis Huth, ASA President said. “Dustin is a fine example that you can’t stay down forever and when you come back, you do it with style and class. Congratulations on winning your second Ace Speedway Late Model championship in the last three years.”

Derek Gagne–A Victory with His Purple Heart Express

November 14th, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – This week, as we honor our veterans for their service, ASA Racing is proud to share the story of a veteran who competes at Norway Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Norway, MI. ASA Racing thanks all of our competitors, officials, track owners and fans who have served in the United States military. We thank you for your dedication and service.

There is a smile on his face. There is laughter in the air along with his mother smiling and being his biggest cheerleader. The smile, the laughter, and his mother are only a few things that catch your attention. His purple and yellow #33 Super Stock catches your eye. All of these things make you want to walk up and start a conversation with Derek Gagne. What you learn from that conversation will make your heart swell with pride and proud to know the driver of the “Purple Heart Express.”

Gagne competes every Friday night at Norway Speedway during the summer. The 25-year-old driver from Menominee, MI recently completed his fifth season of racing. It is a fun adventure for him, compared to the adventures he endured in November 2006 and on January 22, 2007.

While stationed near Baghdad International Airport in Iraq, Gagne lost his hearing in his left ear in November 2006 after he was near a mortar blast. He would stay at his base and continue the positive work he was doing there.

On January 22, 2007, ”We were coming back from dropping off some Humvee’s to get fitted for more armor,” Gagne recalled. “On the way back, our vehicle got hit by an EFP (Energy Force Projectile).”

Gagne said that an EFP is the worst version of an IED (Improvised Explosive Device). It shoots at an object and blasts the Humvee at the same time, doing a lot of damage.

He was the gunner and saw it coming, “I saw some guys sitting off to the side and by the time I could open my mouth…BOOM! At least I got to say I love you to my driver before he lost his life. But at least I got to say that to him.”

He lost half of his left foot, his right leg below the knee, vision in his left eye, whole nasal cavity, nose and a lot of scarring from shrapnel. He would spend nine months recovering and going through rehab at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. The doctors told him he would not walk for 18 months. He was walking in three months. “It’s bad to tell me that I can’t do something, because I am going to prove them wrong.”

When he came home from leave at WRAMC, he sat in his truck and told his dad that he was going to teach himself how to drive the truck with a manual transmission. “I told my dad that I am going to learn how to drive it,” he recalled. “I spent 18 hours making sure I can drive it. I only stalled it once but I was happy when I accomplished that. I said to myself, if I can do this, I could do anything.”

He grew up watching his father race at the local short tracks and thought to himself that he could do that as well. He would go out and buy a Slammer car and in 2008, strapped into the car and started his racing career.

“I was pretty nervous getting on the race track for the first time,” Gagne said. “I didn’t want to hit anybody and get them mad at me. I was just worried.”

He has to do more than his fellow competitors while behind the wheel. “I watch my foot a lot more making sure I don’t miss my pedals,” he said. “I do a lot more head moving than other drivers out there.”

For him, getting behind the wheel has helped his long recovery. “It makes me learn more about my depth perception every time I get on the track. With only having one eye, my depth perception was so messed up. When you think you are two feet away, you are actually ten feet. Racing is making me get better. My instincts are coming back, and it is helping my brain’s healing process.”

His “Purple Heart Express” is dedicated those who sacrificed their lives for this country, some who were good friends.

“A purple heart is not a medal that people seek, but it carries the most honor. I have two purple hearts and a bronze star,” Gagne explained. “I race as a dedication to my fallen heroes. That is why my car is called the Purple Heart Express and that is why I race.” Earlier this year, he won his first race of the season at Sands Speedway in Marquette, MI. It wasn’t a main event win, but it was a win. It was a win that brought tears to his mother’s eyes and a personal victory.

The emotion he felt with that win was the same emotion he felt when serving over in Iraq. He gave up a basketball scholarship to go over with his local National Guard unit. He was not over there to fight a war, but help a country in need of his help.

“When we were over there, we helped start schools, especially where women could go past sixth to eighth grade. Now they get to go to at least 12 full grades and more,” Gagne said. “80% of the country cannot read and they follow the people in
power that can read. Those 20% in power can claim that the Koran says things that it actually doesn’t, and we are helping to change that.”

Another thing he remembers helping the children over there. “We did some basketball and soccer tournaments for the kids. A lot of the Iraqi kids can play soccer very well. They would help us out over there by telling us where the bad people were and where they were hiding weapons.”

He has absolutely no regrets of going over to Iraq, in fact, he is very proud of what he did over there. He feels he made a very positive impact in Iraq.

Today he is a racecar driver, homeowner, golfer, a basketball player and much more. He may not win every time he is out there, but he will give it his all and still smile when he drives under the checkered flag.

Derek’s Native American name is “Soaring Eagle.” It is safe to say that what he does on the track and in his life that this fits him very well.

No matter if he is the first one to cross the finish line, Derek Gagne is a winner. His “Purple Heart Express” reminds us all of more winners who served our country and made the ultimate sacrifice.

“We salute Derek and everyone in the military who has made a sacrifice for this great country,” Dennis Huth, ASA President said. “We have many veterans who compete at our ASA Member Tracks and Series and we are very proud to share one of their stories.”

Lakeside Speedway Announces (Tentative) Schedule For 2013

November 10th, 2012

Kansas City, KS – Marc Olson and his staff have never been one to wait around. Soon as one season ends, Lakeside Speedway is ready to move on to the next season. Olson released Wednesday afternoon his upcoming 2013 schedule. Well, maybe.

That’s right with the release being this early you never know what could change from now until the opening night. Olson always stays open to new ideas or possibilities.

After flooding out in 2011, Lakeside Speedway got back to racing action in 2012. There were only a few rain outs on the season and that helped bolster the excitement of racing at the fast 1/2 mile dirt track in Wyandotte County. As the season came to a close for 2012, fans were already wondering what 2013 would look like, and now they know!

Weekly racing at Lakeside Speedway makes up the core of the 2013 schedule. Modifieds, Grand Nationals, B Mods and Factory Stock will once again knock heads on a weekly basis for the chance to win the points championship. Last season Lakeside’s weekly show averaged near 100 cars per night. Of that large contingent of competitors, great racing was seen in each and every class.

The USMTS Modifieds will be making a return appearance after a successful showing last July. Todd Staley and his band or modified pilots will take another shot at the local area racers. Last season Ryan Gustin, the USMTS National Champion in 2012, liked the track so much he took home Modified feature wins 2 of the 3 races he raced in. Look for more action and possibly a return of the USRA Iron Man B Mods on April 19th with the USMTS. It will be a must see for race fans.

Along with the USMTS another band of hot shots will be making a return to Lakeside Speedway this next season the World of Outlaw Sprint Cars. A very popular race that has shown that fans will continue to pour out to see the likes of Donny Schatz, Steve Kinser, Sammy Swindell and the rest of the best when it comes to 410 sprint cars.

Every track loves to have a signature race and Lakeside Speedway is lucky to have 2 such races each season. September 20th and 21st will be the McCarthy Auto Group Jayhawk Modified Classic, an all out battle royal for a top prize of $5,000 to win and $1,000 just to make the show. October 4th and 5th will round out the racing action for the year with the Clyde Ellis Lucas Oil Late Model Showdown and Modified Shootout. This is a 2 night race during the Sprint Cup weekend at the Kansas Speedway. It’s a fun event that provides a ton of great racing action and a chance to see some racers that we don’t normally see on a weekly basis.

C.A.R.B. will continue to raise money for their permanent home for the C.A.R.B. Hall of Fame with the auction and trade show on October 12.

The 2013 season is starting to take shape at Lakeside Speedway. Start making your plans to get in on the action today!

ASA Racing Will Not Renew Its Licensing Agreement with the Midwest Tour

November 11th, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – The American Speed Association – ASA Racing has announced that they will not be renewing their licensing agreement with the Midwest Tour Super Late Model Series and the Midwest Truck Tour for the 2013 season.

The decision comes after a six-year relationship with the series that started in 2007. Working together, the Midwest Tour has become one of the popular super late model series in the United States.

“ASA Racing has decided not to renew our licensing agreement with the Midwest Tour in 2013,” Dennis Huth, ASA President said. “We wish Tim Olson and Steve Einhaus all the best with their future endeavors.”

Huth purchased the ASA name and licenses in 2005. Since that time, ASA Racing has sanctioned tracks and series all over the United States and Canada. When the Midwest Tour started in 2007, they became sanctioned with ASA Racing creating a
series that quickly became recognized by fans and competitors who were familiar with the rich history of ASA in short track racing.

ASA Racing Announces an Incredible and Unique Program for Short Track Racing

November 3rd, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – ASA Racing has announced a new benefit effective today. The “ASA Advantage Benefit Plan” is a new feature for ASA Members to purchase affordable health and life insurance plans for themselves, their family and for their workers if they own a small business. ASA Members will be able to purchase health and life plans at a group rate rather than an individual rate.

“When we started our ASA membership program, our goal was to find unique and valuable benefits for those who are dedicated to grass roots short track racing and for our ASA members,” Dennis Huth, ASA President said. “We have been constantly enhancing our membership program with what we feel our members need today while at the track and away from the track. This is a first of a kind product in short track racing overall and we are excited to provide this great opportunity today. Everyone is looking for affordable insurance and this will be a great place to find the specific plan they are looking for.”

The ASA Advantage Benefits Plan is a partnership with AmWINS Group Benefits, a provider of association insurance for association members.

The ASA Racing/AmWINS Group Benefits partnership was set up with the help of Jeff Ladd at Sports Insurance Specialists in Fort Wayne, IN. Sports Insurance Specialists is also the provider for ASA Racing, ASA Member Tracks and sanctioned series. “We brought our idea to Jeff and he and his staff jumped right on developing this program for us,” Huth said. “This continues to be a great partnership with SIS, and we are now able to work together, creating plans for our tracks, series, and members both at the track and away from the track. Together we are working on programs to protect those who enjoy and support short track racing like we do.”

“Working with ASA Racing is especially good since our products offer excellent coverage and affordability for ASA members,” stated Ladd, president of Sports Insurance Specialists. “We understand the motorsports industry inside and out, and we recognize the need for strong benefits that can offset the risks involved with the sport. We worked hard with ASA to develop a program that not only provides greater support, but also greater peace of mind. That’s exactly what SIS is all about.”

“AmWINS understands Associations like ASA and their need to provide quality benefit programs for our members,” Huth explained. “They have a relationship with more than 200 leading insurance carriers and benefit manufacturers, enabling them to provide ASA members a broad access of benefit solutions.”

The ASA Advantage Benefits Plans offers options in:
Health Insurance
Term Life Insurance
Simplified Issue
Dental Plan (not available in all states)
Prescription Plan
Pet Insurance
Small Business

ASA Members can start looking today by visiting: http://speedwayeduseries.com/asa_advantage or http://asa-racing.com.

As a leading third party administrator, AmWINS Group Benefits has gained an exceptional reputation through its proficiency in designing, implementing, and administering cost saving and innovative benefit solutions.

“What makes ASA Racing unique as a sanctioning body is that we are not simply focused on what we can do for our members at the track, but what we can do for them away from the track,” Huth said. “But, this is not just for the members themselves. They can find plans for their families and if they are a small business owner, find affordable plans for their employees. We feel this program continues to show our dedication to grass roots short track racing.”

Huth also stated that with the variety of insurance carriers that AmWINS works with, a member should be able to find an affordable plan that is best suited for them, their family and employees.

ASA Racing also has sanctioning opportunities for short tracks and series all across the United States. Please contact the ASA office at (386) 258-2221 for more information today.

2012 ASA Member Track National Championship Profile: Michael Hale

October 26th, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – Michael Hale was able to defend his Maverik Modified championship at Rocky Mountain Raceways, an ASA Member Track in West Valley City, UT, this season. His strong run also gave him a third place finish in the 2012 ASA Member Track National Championship.

Hale, who also lives in West Valley City, won the championship by 224 points over Roger Wilson and 239 points over Mark Ith Jr. “It was a challenge, there are a lot of great racers that we race with on a weekly basis and there is a lot of
competition at Rocky Mountain Raceways,” Hale said. “It is always getting better and hopefully we can keep up with it.”

This season, Hale had two wins with nine top-five and 13 top-ten finishes in 14 starts. He started off his season with a win and two runner-ups. “We had a good start to the season with a couple of wins that propelled us to the point lead,” Hale explained. “What we did for the rest of the season was point race and keep that lead going, which changes the way you race against others when you are the leader instead of the challenger.”

His consistent season put him in the running for the ASA Member Track National Championship. He finished third overall in the final standings with an average of 4.5876. “Shelby Stroebel, who did win it at Meridian Speedway in Idaho, won very
race that he attended. It was pretty hard to look at my results and say how can I pick up 14 more wins?” Hale said. “Congratulations to him, he deserves it. He has visited RMR in the past and now I can say I have raced against two ASA Member Track National Champions.”

The other National Champion is Bryan Wordelmen, who Hale races against at RMR and won the title in 2010. Hale still hopes to equal what Wordelman accomplished two years ago. “Bryan Wordelman set the standard pretty high,” Hale said. “He is a good friend of mine and works for our family business. He had a great year and earned every part of it.”

The thought of winning the National Championship is still high on his wish list. “I would like to do that and that is what I like about the ASA Member Track National Championship, it’s because you get to race against the best in the country and show the caliber of a racer that you are,” Hale explained. “I wish we were a little closer to getting the National Championship ourselves but it just didn’t total out for us this year.”

Hale also enjoys racing at the 0.375-mile asphalt oval that Spencer Young built 16 years ago. He credits Mike Eames, RMR General Manager, and his staff for making their facility a great place to race at week after week. “They go out there
constantly to get sponsors and fans in the stands,” Hale said. “This is great because it has raised the caliber of racing at RMR. Plus it has gotten a lot more exposure with ASA. They are committed to the sport especially during this tough
economic time, they are able to help keep us racing.”

“Michael had a very steady season. He had a few events where he was the dominant car while being able to salvage a couple of other events when they missed on the set up,” Mike Eames, Rocky Mountain Raceways General Manager said. “Our Modified class is so tough, with a whole slew of racers that can win on each night. For Michael to defend his championship and go back-to-back speaks volumes of his abilities and those of his entire team.”

Hale said that he is going to go into the 2013 season and see how it starts out and go from there. This was the same game plan he had going into this season, which resulted in another track championship. “It’s a testament to my team,” Hale said. “My dad and my family have put a lot of time into this and it just goes to show the sacrifice that everyone has made to make this happen.”

“Congratulations to Michael Hale on another Maverik Modified championship at Rocky Mountain Raceways,” Dennis Huth, ASA President said. “Also congratulations to Spencer Young, Mike Eames and everyone else at RMR for another fantastic season of racing. We are glad to have you as part of the ASA family.”

Lance Gatlin Takes ASA Member Track East Region Championship Presented by Speednetdirect.com

October 13th, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL– Lance Gatlin was a contender all season long for the ASA Member Track National Championship. He was going toe-to-toe with Shelby Stroebel as he won the first nine feature events of the season at Lonesome Pine Raceway, an ASA Member Track in Coeburn, VA. He finished second overall in the standings and won the East Region Championship presented by SpeedNetDirect.com.

“It was a great season, probably the best season I have ever had as far as my racing career goes,” Gatlin said when he found out that he was the East Region Champion. “I really can’t complain with ten wins.”

Gatlin ended the 2012 season with a national average of 4.9374. He had ten feature wins, 12 top-five and 14 top-ten finishes at the 3/8-mile semi-banked asphalt oval. “I love the racetrack, it definitely fits my driving style. This is the type of track where you have to race the track and not the drivers, or the track will beat you,” Gatlin said about Lonesome Pine Raceway. “I enjoy racing up there. The competitors I race against are a good group of drivers. We can run side-by-side for many laps and not worry about taking one another out. It has been fun overall and it was a good season.”

“Lance is a gentleman, a scholar and overall a good young Christian man,” Harold Crook, Promoter of Lonesome Pine Raceway said. “Lance is probably one of the best racers I have seen compete around here. It is a pleasure to visit with him and his family. He will be a great representative as the 2012 ASA Member Track East Region Champion.”

Gatlin dominated the Limited Late Model season at Lonesome Pine Raceway. He won the first nine feature events and was in a tight battle with 2012 ASA Member Track National Champion Shelby Stroebel until Gatlin’s streak ended at nine wins. “We congratulate Lance Gatlin on his outstanding season at Lonesome Pine Raceway,” Kevin Spiddle, Co-owner of SpeedNetDirect.com said. “For the second year in a row, we are excited to present the ASA Member Track Regional Champion with a special leather jacket honoring this achievement.”

Even though he came up short from winning the national title, he is proud to win the East Region championship. “We had ten feature wins, a track championship along with being the East Region Champion. This was a great season for us.” Gatlin said. “It puts a little fire in my belly to come back and win it all next year. We will see how it goes during the off-season.”

“Congratulations to Lance Gatlin on his East Region Championship,” Dennis Huth, ASA President said. “He had a championship season that many in short track racing dream of having in their careers. Shelby Stroebel and Lance put on a spirited battle for the national championship all season long. It was unique to see two drivers go undefeated for the first nine events. It was fun to watch these two compete all season long.”

Speednetdirect.com, for the fifth year in a row, tabulated the National Championship standings. Using a proprietary formula that creates an average based on wins, finishing positions, number of cars passed, car counts and events. The driver who wins their track championship and has the highest average over the other ASA Member Track champions won the 2012 ASA Member Track National Championship.

Shelby Stroebel is the 2012 ASA Member Track National Champion

October 4th, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – It is a rare thing in motorsports that a driver wins every feature event they competed in during a season. Shelby Stroebel did that this year in the ASA Modified division at Meridian Speedway in Meridian, ID. His impressive season easily makes him the 2012 ASA Member Track National Champion.

“I had an idea, but until you get the phone call that you are the next National Champion, you never count your chickens before they hatch,” Stroebel said after receiving the phone call from ASA President Dennis Huth. “I am super proud to be where we are at, we had a great year. I have to thank all of the people that helped us. I can’t really even think right now.”

It is also the first National Championship for Meridian Speedway, a quarter-mile asphalt oval located in downtown Meridian, ID.

“Everyone at Meridian Speedway is excited to have Shelby as the 2012 National Champion,” Adam Nelson, Meridian Speedway Promoter said. “He worked really hard on trying to make this happen. He came out and put on a great show every night. Meridian Speedway was one of the original ASA Member Tracks going back to 2003 and we are excited that we can now put up the banner that we are the home of a National Champion.”

“Congratulations to Shelby Stroebel on being the fifth ASA Member Track National Champion and to Adam Nelson and his staff at Meridian Speedway for being the home of this year’s champion,” Dennis Huth, ASA President said. “Shelby accomplished something that rarely is seen in auto racing, an undefeated season. The National Championship is the icing on the cake to a perfect season.”

Stroebel actually has a win streak going back to the end of the 2011 season where he has won 17 straight feature events at Meridian Speedway. A win streak that started prior to Shelby losing his father Allen near the end of last season. Allen had leukemia and Shelby started racing a few years ago to help his dad through it by giving him something to do while going through his treatments. His leukemia went into remission until last year when he lost his battle.

“This is for my dad,” Stroebel said. “He had worked on another driver’s race car and he got pure enjoyment out of doing that. When he got diagnosed, he was really bummed out. My whole thing with sickness is that you need to stay positive, strive forward and have something to live for every day. About six years ago, we went and bought a racecar and at that time didn’t realize the position we would be in today. That is why we started racing, we did it for him.”

Throughout the season Stroebel was in a close battle for the National Championship with Lance Gatlin, who won the Late Model Championship at Lonesome Pine Raceway in Coeburn, VA. In fact, the two had a great duel going as they both won their first nine feature events of the 2012 season. Gatlin would end up with ten feature wins, but was not close to Stroebel’s 14 wins.

Gatlin is the 2012 East Region Champion sponsored by SpeedNetDirect.com.

Stroebel’s average of 5.6121 is the largest ever in the five-year history of the ASA Member Track National Championship. His margin of victory is also the largest with a gap of 0.6747 from Gatlin’s average of 4.9374.

Gatlin’s ten wins highlight an impressive season at the 3/8-mile asphalt oval. His worst finish was when he finished sixth twice, along with a second place finish and a fourth place finish.

Michael Hale finished third overall in the National Standings with an average of 4.5876. He defended his Maverik Modified title at Rocky Mountain Raceways in West Valley City, UT this season. Hale had two wins with nine top-five’s and 13 top-ten finishes this season at the .375-mile asphalt oval located just outside of Salt Lake City. Dustin Rumley became a two-time Late Model champion at Ace Speedway in Altamahaw, NC where he dethroned 2011 ASA Member Track National Champion Barry Beggarly. He had five wins, 12 top-five’s and 15 top-ten finishes this season at the 4/10-mile asphalt oval.

Mike Slone battled with rookie Matt Wallace all season at Lebanon I-44 Speedway in Lebanon, MO. He started the 2012 season with a win and held on to the points lead all season long to win the ASA Late Model title at the 3/8-mile asphalt oval. Overall this season he had four wins, 11 top-five’s and 14 top-ten finishes. Dennis Queen won the Late Model Sportsman championship at Newport Motor Speedway in Newport, TN. He had four wins and 16 top-five finishes at the 4/10-mile asphalt oval.

Mark Eswein was in a close battle all season long with defending track champion Mark Mackesy at State Park Speedway in Wausau, WI. He had three wins with nine top-five and eleven top-ten finishes this season at the ¼-mile asphalt oval. Kyle Borden is still leading the ASA Modified standings at Shasta Speedway in Anderson, CA. Their championship will be decided during their Speedfest 2012 on October 26-28.

Speednetdirect.com, for the fifth year in a row, tabulated the National Championship standings. Using a proprietary formula that creates an average based on wins, finishing positions, number of cars passed, car counts and events.

Rumley, Slone, and Borden are Finalists for the ASA Member Track National Championship

September 28th, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – Dustin Rumley and Mike Slone won their respective track championships this past weekend. Kyle Borden leads the ASA Modified standings towards their final events for the season. All three are now eligible for the ASA Member Track National Championship. The 2012 National Champion will be announced within the next few weeks.

Dustin Rumley became a two-time Late Model Champion at Ace Speedway in Altamahaw, NC. Rumley won the championship by 38 points over Rodney Cook in the final track standings. Defending ASA Member Track National Champion Barry Beggarly finished third in the track standings, 44 points behind Rumley.

The 22-year-old driver from McLeansville, NC won the Late Model championship in 2010. That year, he finished second to Bryan Wordelman from Rocky Mountain Raceways in West Valley City, UT for the national title. He was only 0.0028 behind Wordelman’s national average. In 15 events, he had five feature wins, 12 top-five and 15 top-ten finishes.

Mike Slone held off 16-year-old rookie Matt Wallace to win the ASA Late Model championship at Lebanon I-44 Speedway in Lebanon, MO. Slone was at the top of the leaderboard through the entire season after winning their opening night feature back in May. Even a tough month of July, where he had three finishes outside of the top-ten, didn’t slow down his championship run.

He had four feature wins, 11 top-five and 14 top-ten finishes in 17 starts this season at the 3/8-mile asphalt oval. Kyle Borden still has two events on the 2012 schedule at Shasta Speedway in Anderson, CA. Those events will be after the deadline for the 2012 National Championship deadline date of September 30. He still leads the ASA Modified standings over Micah Palmer.

Since Borden was leading the standings by the deadline, he will be the representative from Shasta Speedway for the ASA Member Track National Championship.

“Congratulations to Dustin Rumley, Mike Slone and Kyle Borden on their 2012 seasons,” Dennis Huth, ASA President said. “We have a quality list of drivers competing for the ASA Member Track National Championship. Whoever wins this year can easily say that they beat the best in short track racing.”

With all of the participating ASA Member Tracks seasons complete, ASA Racing is now in the process of verifying the results with the tracks. Once that is completed, the 2012 ASA Member Track National Champion will be announced. To learn more about the ASA Member Tracks and Sanctioned Series in your area, please visit www.asa-racing.com.

Michael Hale and Dennis Queen Officially in the Running for the ASA Member Track National Championship

September 21st, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – Two more drivers etched their names into the list of eligible drivers for the 2012 ASA Member Track National Championship. Michael Hale and Dennis Queen each captured their respective track championships this past weekend and join Lance Gatlin and Mark Eswein in chasing down Shelby Stroebel for the national title.

Hale defended his Maverik Modified championship this past weekend at Rocky Mountain Raceways, an ASA Member Track in West Valley City, UT. Hale finished second last Saturday night to secure his second straight title. Roger Wilson was 224-points behind in second place with Mark Ith Jr. finishing third, only 239 points behind the champion.

Dennis Queen won a feature and finished second in the second to secure the Late Model Sportsman championship at Newport Motor Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Newport, TN, last Saturday night. He held off Wayne Webb and Taylor Coffman for the track title.

Currently, there are five drivers officially eligible to go for the ASA Member Track National Championship as they achieved the goal of winning their track title first. Three more drivers could join the list after this weekend.

Dustin Rumley finished second to defending ASA Member Track National Champion Barry Beggarly in the Late Model feature last Friday night at Ace Speedway in Altamahaw, NC. Rumley holds a 36-point lead over Beggarly going into their 100-lap season finale this Friday night.

A 100-lap feature, along with double points, will help determine the ASA Late Model championship at Lebanon I-44 Speedway in Lebanon, MO this Saturday night. Mike Slone will go into the finale with a 185-point lead over Matt Wallace in the track standings. Wallace’s team is hoping to take advantage of the double points available and gain 190 points to take the championship away from Slone.

Kyle Borden has just about wrapped up the ASA Modified title at Shasta Speedway in Anderson, CA. He holds a big lead over Micah Palmer heading into their action this Saturday night. Borden won one of the two ASA Modified features last Saturday night.

“Congratulations to Michael Hale and Dennis Queen on their 2012 championships,” Dennis Huth, ASA President said. “Ace Speedway, Lebanon I-44 Speedway, and Shasta Speedway will have some incredible racing action as the championships could come down to the final lap. We encourage everyone to visit their closest ASA Member Track this weekend and watch the battles in person.”

Eswein Joins Stroebel and Gatlin as Qualifiers for the ASA Member Track National Championship

September 19th, 2012

Four more qualifiers to be decided this weekend–Mark Eswein became the latest driver to officially qualify for the ASA Member Track National Championship. The Wisconsin Rapids, WI driver won the Super Late Model track championship at State Park Speedway in Wausau, WI last Thursday night. He joins Shelby Stroebel and Lance Gatlin as official qualifiers for the ASA Member Track National Championship.

Eswein finished third last Thursday night to win the track championship by 28 points over Mark Mackesy. Eswein has a national average of 3.4388.

Stroebel continues with the overall lead in the national championship chase with an average of 5.0763. Stroebel’s win streak at Meridian Speedway in Meridian, ID was extended to 17 last Saturday night as he won a non-points event named after his father Allen Stroebel, who passed away last year after a long battle with cancer. His win last Saturday will not factor in to the National Championship. Gatlin will have his final points event this Saturday night at Lonesome
Pine Raceway in Coeburn, VA. He wrapped up the title at their last event, but still has an opportunity with this Saturday night to catch up to Stroebel. Gatlin has a national average of 4.6725. Along with Lonesome Pine Raceway, three other ASA Member Tracks will determine their track champions this weekend. Lebanon I-44 Speedway, Newport Motor Speedway and Rocky Mountain Raceways will have their championship events on Saturday night.

Mike Slone will be looking to hold off Matt Wallace for the ASA Late Model championship at Lebanon I-44 Speedway this Saturday night. The ASA Member Track in Lebanon, MO is also making this a double points night.

Last Saturday night, Wallace was able to shave off 80-points to Slone’s lead with his second place finish. Slone was right behind him in third. Wallace is only 185-points behind Slone going into their finale this Saturday night with a total of 420 points available.

Wallace does have a higher average than Slone in the national standings. Wallace has an average of 4.1862 while Slone has a 4.0874. Wallace has the second highest average in the West Region and third highest overall.

Dennis Queen continues to lead the standings at Newport Motor Speedway in Newport, TN. They will have twin 50-lap feature events this Saturday night to determine their 2012 track champion. Queen has a 15-point lead over Taylor Coffman and a 23-point lead over Wayne Webb. Taylor Nesbitt is only 33 points behind Queen. It is safe to say that the championship is up for grabs.

Queen has a national average of 3.9873 while Coffman has an average of 3.8419. Webb has an average of 3.6740 and Nesbitt goes into Saturday night with an average of 3.6058.

Michael Hale will go into the Maverik Modified season championship this Saturday night with a 169-point lead at Rocky Mountain Raceways in West Valley City, UT. Hale holds that lead over Mark Ith Jr. and a 192-point lead over Roger Wilson.

Hale has a national average of 3.8030 while Ith Jr. has an average of 3.8689. Wilson has the highest average among the RMR competitors with an average of 4.0036.

Dustin Rumley could be a factor before the 2012 ASA Member Track National Championship closes at the end of the month. He has two more events before the Late Model championship is decided at Ace Speedway in Altamahaw, NC. He will have one event this Friday night and their championship night is set for Friday, September 21.

Rumley won the last two feature events and now has a 38-point lead over defending ASA Member Track National Champion Barry Beggarly and a 44-point lead over Rodney Cook in the track standings. Rumley has a national average of 4.2593.

Kyle Borden will be in action this Saturday and next Saturday at Shasta Speedway in Anderson, CA. He has a very comfortable lead over Micah Palmer in the ASA Modified standings. He has a national average of 1.3704.

“The next few weeks are going to be intense as everyone is waiting to see who will be the 2012 ASA Member Track National Champion,” Dennis Huth, ASA President said. “Our ASA Member Tracks will be deciding their track champions and then we will find out who are the best of them all. If you can get to one of our ASA Member Tracks this weekend and next weekend, you should go because the racing will be incredible.”

Speednetdirect.com, for the fifth year in a row, will tabulate the National Championship standings. Using a proprietary formula that creates an average based on wins, finishing positions, number of cars passed, car counts and events. The driver who wins their track championship and has the highest average over the other ASA Member Track champions will win the 2012 ASA Member Track National Championship.

Quincy, Illinois – 13-year-old, Jake Griffin has achieved another first in his young career as he has been cleared by the American Speed Association (ASA) Midwest Tour Super Late Models and Iowa Speedway to compete at the tour’s event at the facility on Friday, September 14th. By entering the event he will make history as the youngest driver to compete with the series and at the 7/8 mile oval.

“We received word on Wednesday that we had been approved by the series and the track to enter the ASA Midwest event at the track in a couple of weeks. This is really exciting for me, because it represents another obstacle that we’ve overcome in this sport. There are a lot of great drivers entered into this event, and my goal is to just make the race,” noted the enthusiastic Griffin.

Forty-one competitors have already filed entries for the event, and most ASA Midwest events start thirty cars or less so just making the show will be a challenge against a field of competitors that includes NASCAR Nationwide competitors as well NASCAR Camping World Truck Series racers. The team’s main goal is to qualify for the feature and get track experience. Jake made his debut on asphalt earlier this year at Hawkeye Downs Speedway (Cedar Rapids, Iowa), where he competed in both the Late Model and Open Wheel Modified division on a weekly basis. Throughout the year he registered several strong runs as well as multiple wins at the paved oval. This success led to Griffin getting approval to race in the upcoming ASA event at Iowa Speedway.

“I can’t thank ASA and Iowa Speedway enough for approving me to compete in the Iowa 50. I’m ready to put everything I have into showing everybody that I can compete on the ASA level,” concluded Jake.

The team will shake down their entry this Saturday at Hawkeye Downs Speedway with a practice session. In addition to the practice session the team plans a busy weekend with their UMP Late Model and UMP Modified with action that will begin on Friday night at Tri City Speedway (Pontoon Beach, Illinois) before moving onto Montgomery Motorsports Park (New Florence, Missouri) on Saturday and concluding on Sunday evening at Quincy Raceway (Quincy, Illinois).

Jake Griffin Racing would to like to thank all of their sponsors including Fierge Auto Parts, McPike’s Pawn Shop, Crawdad’s Classics Gourmet Hot Sauce, Triple R Machine Shop, Microtel Inns & Suites, Bob Pierce Race Cars, Johnny Spaw Race Cars Kelly’s Restaurant, Powder Coat Plus, Wilco Fast Breaks, Green Smart Builders, and Outdoor Power Inc.

ASA Member Track National Championship Release

August 30th, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – The top six on the leaderboard for the ASA Member Track National Championship will be in action this Labor Day Weekend. The holiday weekend will set the tone for the final month of the 2012 battle.

Current National Championship leader Shelby Stroebel will be looking for his 13^th and 14^th feature wins in the ASA Modified division this Saturday night at Meridian Speedway in Meridian, ID. It was about this time one year ago that Stroebel started his win streak at the quarter-mile asphalt oval. He will be coming into this weekend with a 220-point lead over Rus Ward in the track standings and has a national average of 4.5261.

Lance Gatlin hopes to find his way back into victory lane this Saturday night at Lonesome Pine Raceway in Coeburn, VA. He started off the 2012 season by winning the first nine features in the Limited Late Model division. His last three outings he has had a second, sixth, and fourth place finishes. He has an 80-point lead over Ryan Stiltner in the track standings and has a national average of 4.3944.

The High Banks 100 will be a true test for Mike Slone this Saturday night at Lebanon I-44 Speedway in Lebanon, MO. The current point leader, along with his competitors in the ASA late Model division, will battle it out in a 100-lap feature event. Slone currently has a 265-point lead over Matt Wallace in the track standings and is third overall in the national standings with an average of 4.0237.

Dennis Queen hopes to extend his 15-point lead over Taylor Coffman this Saturday night at Newport Motor Speedway in Newport, TN.

Rocky Mountain Raceways in West Valley City, UT will have their Maverik Modifieds compete this Monday night. Michael Hale holds an 188-point lead over Mark Ith Jr. in the track standings.

Only 12 points separate Dustin Rumley and defending ASA Member Track National Champion Barry Beggarly going into their twin 50-lap feature event this Friday night at Ace Speedway in Altamahaw, NC. Rumley and Beggarly have been going back and forth as the Late Model point leader over the last two months. Rodney Cook is only 24 points behind Rumley,
creating an incredible three-driver battle for the championship. Rumley has a national average of 3.4772.

Mark Eswein took over the points lead from Mark Mackesy after their feature event last Thursday night at State Park Speedway in Wausau, WI. Eswein now holds a nine-point lead over Mackesy going into their season finale on Thursday, September 6. Eswein has a national average of 3.4388.

Kyle Borden picked up another feature win at Shasta Speedway in Anderson, CA last Saturday night. He has a commanding lead over Micah Parmer in the track standings. They will be back in action on Saturday, September 15. Borden has a national average of 1.3704.

“Labor Day Weekend is always an important weekend in short track racing, especially at our ASA Member Tracks,” Dennis Huth, ASA President said. “This weekend will be a great launch into our final month of the 2012 ASA Member Track National Championship. The racing will be close and very competitive. You want excitement, you will see it this weekend at an ASA Member Track or any short track.”

Throughout the season, drivers competing in the premiere divisions at eligible ASA Member Tracks are in the running for the 2012 ASA Member Track National Championship. In order to have a chance for the national title, a driver must first win their 2012 track championship.

Speednetdirect.com, for the fifth year in a row, will tabulate the National Championship standings. Using a proprietary formula that creates an average based on wins, finishing positions, number of cars passed, car counts and events. The driver who wins their track championship and has the highest average over the other ASA Member Track champions will win the 2012 ASA Member Track National Championship.

ASA Member Track Standings Factor into National Championship

August 23rd, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – The old adage that you must win the battle in order to win the war could best describe the ASA Member Track National Championship. Right now, many of the contenders at the ASA sanctioned tracks are trying to position themselves not only to win the track championship but also to have a chance at being the fifth ASA Member Track National Champion.

In order for a driver to win the ASA Member Track National Champion, not only do they have to be an ASA member in good standing, they must also capture their 2012 track championship. Some contenders are in a position where they can look at the national picture while others need to focus on what is happening at the track.

Shelby Stroebel has been leading the National Championship all season long thanks to his undefeated streak in the ASA Modified division at Meridian Speedway in Meridian, ID. He currently has a 220-point lead over Rus Ward and a 434-point lead over Jentry Pisca in the track standings. His national average is currently 4.5261. Ward has a national average of 3.5601 along with Pisca’s 2.7837.

Lance Gatlin started out his season with a nine-win streak in the Limited Late Model division at Lonesome Pine Raceway in Coeburn, VA. He currently holds an 80-point lead over Ryan Stiltner and a 94-point lead over Kevin Wolfe. He is staying within reach of Stroebel in the National Standings with an average of 4.3944.

Mike Slone is holding a 265-point lead over Matt Wallace in the ASA Late Model standings at Lebanon I-44 Speedway in Lebanon, MO. Both have had some good and bad runs over the last six weeks. Slone has had a stable lead over the 16-year-old son of NASCAR Nationwide Series driver Mike Wallace. While Slone is third overall in the National Standings with an average of 4.0237, Wallace actually has a higher national average of 4.0754. Over the next few weeks, Wallace needs to find a way to eliminate Slone’s point lead to be a factor in the National Championship.

Dennis Queen holds a 15-point lead over Taylor Coffman in the Late Model Sportsman division at Newport Motor Speedway in Newport, TN. Wayne Webb is only 23-points behind Queen. Queen has a national average of 3.8336 while Coffman has a 3.6258. Webb has a 3.3872.

Michael Hale is looking to defend his Maverik Modified championship at Rocky Mountain Raceways in West Valley City, UT. He holds a 188-point lead over Mark Ith Jr. and a 216-point lead over Lynn Hardy. Hale is moving up in the National Standings with a current average of 3.6495. Ith has an average of 3.5548 while Hardy has a 3.5165.

There is also a tight point battle for the Late Model championship at Ace Speedway in Altamahaw, NC. This week, Dustin Rumley holds a 12-point lead over defending ASA Member Track National Champion Barry Beggarly. Rodney Cook is also in the battle as he is just 24 points behind the 2010 track champion. Rumley has a national average of 3.4772 while Beggarly has a 3.3852. Cook has an average of 3.1601.

Only four points separate Mark Mackesy and Mark Eswein in the Late Model division at State Park Speedway in Wausau, WI. Neil Knoblock is 36 points behind Mackesy. Mackesy has a national average of 3.0183 while Eswein has a higher average of 3.1704. Knoblock has a 3.0714. Kyle Borden holds a 229-point lead over Micah Parmer in the ASA Modified standings at Shasta Speedway in Anderson, CA. Bordan has an average of 1.3704 while Parmer has a 1.096.

“The last part of August and the early part of September is where we see a lot of shifting in the ASA Member Track National Championship standings,” Dennis Huth, ASA President said. “A track championship is like an endurance competition. Those who started the season strong need to finish strong while others fall back. We have a great group of drivers that are all qualified to win the 2012 title. What they do every weekend from now until the end of September will have a local and national impact.”

Throughout the season, drivers competing in the premiere divisions at eligible ASA Member Tracks are in the running for the 2012 ASA Member Track National Championship. In order to have a chance for the national title, a driver must first win their 2012 track championship.

Speednetdirect.com, for the fifth year in a row, will tabulate the National Championship standings. Using a proprietary formula that creates an average based on wins, finishing positions, number of cars passed, car counts and events. The driver who wins their track championship and has the highest average over the other ASA Member Track champions will win the 2012 ASA Member Track National Championship.

Tight Battle Brewing fo the ASA Member Track National Championship

August 16th, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – The battle for the ASA Member Track National Championship is starting to get intense. Shelby Stroebel remains undefeated while Lance Gatlin saw his win streak end last Saturday night. The other track leaders are starting to catch the top two in the national standings.

Stroebel won his twelfth ASA Modified feature of the year last Saturday night at Meridian Speedway in Meridian, ID. Going back to last season, he is on a 14-win streak. He has an overall average of 4.0929.

Gatlin had his streak stopped by two-time track champion Nate Monteith last Saturday night at Lonesome Pine Raceway in Coeburn, VA. Gatlin finished second in the Limited Late Model feature event. Even though his win streak came to an end, he still is not far behind Stroebel with an average of 3.8680.

Wayne Webb continues to lead the Late Model Sportsman standings at Newport Motor Speedway in Newport, TN. He is not that far behind Gatlin in the national standings as he has an average of 3.8336.

Mike Slone picked up another feature win in the ASA Late Model division at Lebanon I-44 Speedway in Lebanon, MO. He had a rough month of July but has turned that around in August. He has an average of 3.7320.

Dustin Rumley finished second to Barry Beggarly last Friday night in the Late Model feature at Ace Speedway in Altamahaw, NC. He still holds on to the points lead in a tight battle over Rodney Cook and Beggarly. He is also in the hunt for the national title with an average of 3.2591.

Michael Hale’s sixth place finish helps maintain a healthy point lead in the Maverik Modified standings over Mark Ith Jr. and Lynn Hardy. He is sixth overall in the national standings with an average of 3.0446. Hale is slowly catching the top-five.

Mark Mackesy holds a four-point lead over Mark Eswein in the Super Late Model standings at State Park Speedway in Wausau, WI. He has a national average of 2.6826 with some big events coming up at the Wimmer owned facility. Kyle Borden and his fellow ASA Modified drivers will be in action at the end of the month at Shasta Speedway in Anderson, CA. He has a national average of 1.3704.

“Many of our ASA Member Tracks have tight point battles that could change the landscape for the National Championship,” Dennis Huth, ASA President said. “Many will want to focus on chasing down Shelby Stroebel for the national title, but they need to keep their eye close to home and win their track championship first. The next few weeks are going to be stressful for those in contention. It can also create some great racing at all of our ASA Member Tracks.”

Throughout the season, drivers competing in the premiere divisions at eligible ASA Member Tracks are in the running for the 2012 ASA Member Track National Championship. In order to have a chance for the national title, a driver must first win their 2012 track championship.

ASA Member Track National Championship Through a Panoramic Lens

August 11th, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – Much of the attention so far this season with the ASA Member Track National Championship has been the stellar undefeated runs by Shelby Stroebel and Lance Gatlin. But there are other ASA Member Track competitors that could see themselves in contention for the National title if things go their way.

Both Stroebel and Gatlin will be in action this Saturday night. Gatlin was supposed to race last Saturday but that event was rained out. Stroebel is still the overall leader with an average of 3.6429, while Gatlin leads the East with an average of 3.5027.

There are other competitors who could have a shot if they took over the point lead at their respective ASA Member Tracks. Some have a higher national average than their track’s leader. Remember, in order to have an opportunity to be the National Champion, a driver must win their ASA Member Track championship first.

Lebanon I-44 Speedway, an ASA member Track in Lebanon, MO, has a great battle between a veteran and a rookie this season. Matt Wallace, son of NASCAR Nationwide Series driver Mike Wallace, is currently second in points behind Mike Slone in the ASA Late Model standings. Wallace had mechanical issues last week allowing Slone to open up his lead. Wallace does have a higher average than Slone, and actually Stroebel and Gatlin, in the National Standings due to having more events in the books. He has an average of 3.7290 while Slone has a 3.4778. If Wallace takes over the point lead at Lebanon I-44 Speedway, he could find himself in contention for the National title.

Stroebel has a comfortable lead in the ASA Modified standings at Meridian Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Meridian, ID. He holds a 182-point lead over Rus Ward and 336-point lead over Jentry Pisca in the track standings. Ward has a national average of 2.8666 while Pisca has a 2.566.

Dennis Queen is the current points leader at Newport Motor Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Newport, TN. He comes into this weekend with an average of 3.6050, which puts himself into second place overall. Queen has more completed events than both Stroebel and Gatlin to help give him the higher average.

Even though Gatlin has won all of the feature events so far at Lonesome Pine Raceway, ASA Member Track in Coeburn, VA, he holds a 74-point lead over Kevin Wolfe and an 80-point lead over Ryan Stiltner in the Limited Late Model standings. Wolfe has a national average of 2.7021 while Stiltner has a 2.7202.

Ace Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Altamahaw, NC, has a tight points battle in their Late Model division. Dustin Rumley currently holds a ten-point lead over Rodney Cook and an 18-point lead over defending ASA Member Track National Champion Barry Beggarly. Rumley has the highest average among his fellow Ace competitors going into their next event on Friday night with a 2.9086. Cook has an average of 2.6403 and Beggarly has 2.7644.

Michael Hale is looking good to defend his 2011 Maverik Modified championship at Rocky Mountain Raceways, an ASA Member Track in West Valley City, UT. He currently has a 192-point lead over Roger Wilson and a 216-point lead over Mark Ith Jr. Lynn Hardy, who won last Saturday, is only 219 points behind Hale. Hale has a national average of 2.7474 while Wilson has a 2.8362. Ith has an average of 2.4724 while Hardy has an average of 2.4688.

Shasta Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Anderson, CA, is rebuilding their great racing program under new management this season and they are seeing positive results. Kyle Borden currently leads the ASA Modified standings with a 68-point lead over Mike Wright and an 86-point lead over Micah Parmer. Borden has a national average of 1.3704. Wright has an average of 1.1516 with Palmer having an average of 1.096.

The closest point battle among the top eight tracks competing for the National Championship can be found at State Park Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Wausau, WI. Mark Mackesy is trying to defend his 2011 Super Late Model championship but is only 14 points ahead of Mark Eswein and 24 points to Neil Knoblock. Mackesy has a national average of 2.6826 but both Eswein and Knoblock have a higher average. Eswein has a 2.7786 while Knoblock has a 2.7881.

“The championship battles at our ASA Member Tracks help create the battle for the ASA Member Track National Championship,” Dennis Huth, ASA President said. “Our ASA Member Tracks need to settle their local battles first before looking at the overall picture in the national championship. When you look at each track’s standings, it is easy to say that the track championship and the ASA Member Track National Championship battles are heating up. The action on the track will be exciting and fans need to watch it in person.”

Throughout the season, drivers competing in the premiere divisions at eligible ASA Member Tracks are in the running for the 2012 ASA Member Track National Championship.

Speednetdirect.com, for the fifth year in a row, will tabulate the National Championship standings. Using a proprietary formula that creates an average based on wins, finishing positions, number of cars passed, car counts and events. The driver who wins their track championship and has the highest average over the other ASA Member Track champions will win the 2012 ASA Member Track National Championship.

Stroebel & Gatlin Take a Breather While Others Try to Catch Up in the ASA Member Track National Championship

August 3rd, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – The final two months of the ASA Member Track National Championship will be intense for two reasons. How long will Shelby Stroebel and Lance Gatlin keep their season long undefeated streaks going at their ASA Member tracks? Will those who got a later start to the season be able to catch them?

Both Stroebel and Gatlin had this past weekend off, but remain the top two in the standings.

Stroebel has an eleven-race streak going in the ASA Modified division at Meridian Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Meridian, ID. He still sits at the top of the standings with an average of 3.6429.

Gatlin is on a nine-win streak in the Limited Late Model division at Lonesome Pine Raceway, an ASA Member Track in Coeburn, VA. He has an average of 3.5027.

“This is probably the best season I have ever had in racing,” Gatlin recently said. “I feel like I am in my prime. I have great equipment and great people working on the car. We can’t complain, we have won nine in a row at Lonesome Pine. You could not have asked for a better season.”

Gatlin also said that he feels like he is in a comfortable position to win the track championship at Lonesome Pine Raceway. His focus is now turning to what he has to do overcome Stroebel and win the ASA Member Track National Championship.

Gatlin will be a guest on this week’s ASA Racing Podcast, which will be available on www.asa-racing.com and on iTunes under ASA Racing.

Mike Slone continues to lead the ASA Late Model point standings at Lebanon I-44 Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Lebanon, MO. He holds a 160-point lead over Matt Wallace in the track standings. He is third overall in the National Standings with an average of 3.3191.

Wayne Webb continues to lead the Late Model Sportsman standings at Newport Motor Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Newport, TN. He is fourth overall with an average of 3.0479.

Dustin Rumley finished second at Ace Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Altamahaw, NC, last Friday night to take over the points lead from Barry Beggarly. He is fifth overall in the national standings with an average of 2.9086.

Michael Hale also enjoyed a weekend off and will be back in action this Saturday night at Rocky Mountain Raceways, an ASA Member Track in West Valley City, UT. Hale has been known to make a late surge in the National Standings over the final two months. He currently has an average of 2.3745.

Mark Mackesy made a late pass on Chris Wimmer to win the Larry Detjens Memorial this past weekend at State Park Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Wausau, WI. He has a national average of 2.2889.

Kyle Borden picked up another ASA Modified feature win at Shasta Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Anderson, CA, last Saturday night. He has an average of 1.3704.

“The final two months are always exciting for the ASA Member Track National Championship,” Dennis Huth, ASA President said. “This is the time when more competitors, promoters and fans keep a close eye on the standings. The action on the track will be intense and then more intense as they wait for the updated national standings. This is far from over.”

Throughout the season, drivers competing in the premiere divisions at eligible ASA Member Tracks are in the running for the 2012 ASA Member Track National Championship. In order to have a chance for the national title, a driver must first win their 2012 track championship.

Speednetdirect.com, for the fifth year in a row, will tabulate the National Championship standings. Using a proprietary formula that creates an average based on wins, finishing positions, number of cars passed, car counts and events. The driver who wins their track championship and has the highest average over the other ASA Member Track champions will win the 2012 ASA Member Track National Championship.

Full standings are available at www.speednetdirect.com. Click on the ASA Member Track logo at the top of the page.

ASA Pro Trucks Race Report from Magic Valley Speedway

July 27th, 2012

Twin Falls Idaho–The stage was set for not one but two forty lap main events. Point leader Jerry Rice set the pace in qualifying knocking out the fast time on his first and second lap setting him up for a starting position at the rear of both main events. The first qualifying lap time was used for the first race and the second for the second. The number forty-six truck of Hannah Newhouse qualified slowest in the field on her first lap after suffering problems with the transmission shifter linkage. “The truck needs to be in second to go fast and we couldn’t put it in second, we had to qualify in drive and that really hurt our time,” said Newhouse. Newhouse was however fast enough to maintain a starting
position on the pole for the first main event. Newhouse is working hard on her racing resume and a win in the ASA Pro Trucks would really help that along. “We need a win in the trucks everyone knows the competition in this class is one of the toughest in the northwest, winning in a Pro Truck would say she can race with some of the best drivers. With all
the champions in this class it’s so hard to win,” Said dad and truck owner John Newhouse before the first main event. Hannah Newhouse went on to win the first main event of the evening. Newhouse lead 39 of the 40 laps with Dan Doan being the only other driver to lead a lap taking it at the line on lap 6. Jeff Pohlman made several runs on Newhouse bumping her going into turn three several times trying to get under her but eventually had to settle for a second place finish. Rice made his way into third followed across the line by Alan Larson and Johnny Pierre.

The cool move of the race was awarded to Pohlman for his efforts trying to get around Newhouse in the first main event.

The second qualifying lap set Doug Dugger on the pole for the second main event. Dugger was one of seven drivers eligible for the “Sleep Solutions Bonus” The award was available to any driver that had not won in the 2012 season. Dugger was quick to set the pace setting the fast time of the event early in the forty lap main event but over working the tires early gave him a handful of steering wheel for the last 10 laps “It was all I could do to just hold on” Dugger reflected. Last season Dugger one by the smallest margin of victory with a difference of 0.04 hundredths of a second. This time Dugger came on the other side finishing 0.08 hundredths of a second behind teammate Dan Doan. Doan made several runs on Dugger on the closing laps and let it all hang out going through turns three and four. Getting along side Dugger coming
off turn four the two raced side by side to the line both spinning the tires all the way. It was an emotional win for Doan it almost felt like his first win in a truck. Doan’s last trip to the winners circle in a truck was back in 2005. “It’s so tough to win in this class it’s just full of top notch drivers. This just means so much to me. I can’t thank
Alan Larson enough for letting me race his truck, it’s such an honor. This is hands down the toughest class of drivers in the northwest”. Said Doan from the winners circle.

Hannah Newhouse came across the line third. “I kept thinking they are going to wreck they were both so loose”. Drew Reitsma and Jerry Rice rounded out the top five in the second main event.

Doan was awarded the cool move of the race award for his pass for the win on the last lap. The only lap Doan led in the race but it was the one that counts. Doan will be presented with a $50 gift certificate to Ultra Cool Brake Fans. Ultra Cool is a proud supporter of the ASA Racing and the ASA Pro Truck Series. Ultra Cool can be found at

The ASA Pro Trucks will return to action at Rocky Mountain Raceway on August 11^th. It will be the first event of the twenty twelve season where fans can see the ASA Pro Trucks running with the Monster Trucks.

ASA Member Track National Championship Battle Tightens; Promoters are on the Edge of Their Seats

July 25th, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – Adam Nelson and Harold Crook find themselves in a unique position. Each Promoter has a driver that is undefeated so far this season in their premiere division, which is very rare in short track racing. Both are also looking to have their first ASA Member Track National Champion.

Shelby Stroebel, from Meridian Speedway, still sits at the top of the ASA Member Track National Championship standings with an average of 3.6429. Lance Gatlin, from Lonesome Pine Raceway, is not far behind with an average of 3.5027.

Over the next few weeks, the battle could get more interesting as Gatlin will have the opportunity to have an equal number of events on record to Stroebel. Gatlin competes again on August 4 while Stroebel will be back in action on August 11. This could be the start of a classic East vs. West battle for the National Title. A battle that could see more than just two involved as other ASA Member Track drivers could be also in the hunt.

Nelson is the promoter of Meridian Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Meridian, ID. His driver Shelby Stroebel won his eleventh straight ASA Modified feature this past Saturday night. His win streak going back to last season is now up to 13 events.

As a Promoter, Nelson hopes to see many of his competitors visit victory lane at his 1/4-mile asphalt oval. But, when a driver is undefeated this far into the season, Nelson has a different thought. “It is rare to have undefeated drivers at two tracks with decent car counts, especially in your top division,” Nelson said. “Our guys are doing everything they can to get involved in our ASA Modified division. When you have that interest, you would like to see many different winners. At the same time, when you have Shelby on the streak he is on, everyone is curious to see how far he will take it, including myself.”

Over on the East Coast at Lonesome Pine Raceway, an ASA Member Track in Coeburn, VA, Harold Crook is tickled to death that he has a driver in the hunt for the 2012 National title. He also would like to see different winners as well. In fact, over the last few events, Crook has put up a bounty for any competitor who beats Gatlin. After two attempts, no one has claimed the bounty, which is up to $450 on August 4.

“It feels real good to have a driver like Lance Gatlin challenging for the ASA Member Track National Championship. He is a really nice guy,” Crook said. “But, I am very lucky to have some great teams racing with us this season. They all work hard and deserve to win, which is why I put up the bounty on Lance. His success is great for our track because it is drawing fan interest and helping our car count. In fact, our fans are cheering for him to win each week. Last Saturday night, we did a thorough inspection on his car to show everyone that he is legal. Fans were calling the track office during the middle of the night to make sure he was the official winner.”

“Right now, you have two drivers on a great streak and several others chasing them. One hiccup from either could allow the others to catch up,” Dennis Huth, ASA President said. “This is very far from over. The battle may not come down to these two drivers in the final two months. Several others, who started later in the season could have a strong finish and be in contention for the title.”

Mike Slone is third overall with an average of 3.1972. He has been leading the ASA Late Model standings all season long at Lebanon I-44 Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Lebanon, MO. He and Matt Wallace could be in for a great points battle after Wallace won his third feature last Saturday night.

Zack Franks and Dennis Queen at Newport Motor Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Newport, TN are chasing down Wayne Webb in their Late Model Sportsman division. Webb is fourth overall in the standings with an average of 2.8291.

Defending ASA Member Track National Champion Barry Beggarly is hoping to get back on track this Friday night and gain some points on the leader at Ace Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Altamahaw, NC. The last event for him was rained out two weeks ago. He is fifth in the standings with an average of 2.6302. He is also in a tight points battle with Dustin Rumley in their Late Model division.

Michael Hale is in a good position defending his Maverik Modified championship at Rocky Mountain Raceways, an ASA Member Track in West Valley City, UT. He is sixth overall with an average of 2.3745.

Mark Mackesy took back the points lead last Thursday night at State Park Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Wausau, WI. He has an average of 2.0910.

Kyle Borden will be looking to extend his points lead this Saturday night at Shasta Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Anderson, CA. He has an average of 1.3704.

Throughout the season, drivers competing in the premiere divisions at eligible ASA Member Tracks are in the running for the 2012 ASA Member Track National Championship. In order to have a chance for the national title, a driver must first win their 2012 track championship. Speednetdirect.com, for the fifth year in a row, will tabulate the National Championship standings. Using a proprietary formula that creates an average based on wins, finishing positions, number of cars passed, car counts and events. The driver who wins their track championship and has the highest average over the other ASA Member Track champions will win the 2012 ASA Member Track National Championship.

Stroebel & Gatlin Each Extend Their Winning Streaks at Their ASA Member Tracks

July 24th, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – The undefeated streaks for Shelby Stroebel and Lance Gatlin will continue for another week. Both drivers won at their respective ASA Member Tracks on Saturday night, which could brew a classic East vs. West battle for the ASA MemberTrack National Championship.

Stroebel won the 50-lap ASA Modified feature event at Meridian Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Meridian, ID. This is his 11^th feature win in 11 starts this season, extending his winning streak to 13 going back to the end of the 2011 season. He will try to make it twelve in a row on Saturday, August 11.

Gatlin won his ninth straight feature event in the Limited Late Model feature at Lonesome Pine Raceway, an ASA Member Track in Coeburn, VA. He started sixth in the 60-lap feature event and took over the lead on lap 24 from Kevin Wolfe and never looked back.

Gatlin will try to extend his win streak to ten on Saturday, August 4. LPR Promoter Harold Crook has already raised the bounty to $450 if anyone can beat Gatlin.

2 Undefeated Drivers Lead the ASA Member Track National Championship Standings

July 20th, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – The battle is on between two undefeated drivers competing at two different ASA Member Tracks. So far this season, Shelby Stroebel has won all ten features in the ASA Modified division at Meridian Speedway in Meridian, ID while Lance Gatlin has won all eight Limited Late Model features at Lonesone Pine Raceway in Coeburn, VA. The two drivers sit at the top of this week’s ASA Member Track National Standings. Stroebel has a slight edge over Gatlin with his average of 3.5289. Gatlin’s average is 3.1536.

“This is a very rare thing to see in short track racing,” Dennis Huth, ASA President exclaimed. “In all my years of being involved in short track racing, I cannot recall when I have heard of two drivers being undefeated this far into a season. Congratulations to Shelby and Lance on their streaks. Now, we will all watch to see how long their streaks will last. The other ASA Member Track competitors are within reach of joining the top two in the battle to be the 2012 National Champion.” If you went back to last season, Stroebel’s win streak at Meridian Speedway is now up to 12 straight victories in the ASA Modified division. His win streak will be tested this Saturday night with a 50-lap feature event.

Last Saturday, Lonesome Pine Raceway Promoter Harold Crook put a $350 bounty if anyone could beat Gatlin in the Limited Late Model twin feature events this past Saturday night. Gatlin made sure that Crook held on to that bounty by winning both events. Crook has now increased that bounty to $400 for this Saturday night.

While their win streaks have currently at the top of the leaderboard, it doesn’t mean that the other competitors should slow down their chase. If both streaks were to come to an end, we could see a very tight battle overall for the National Championship.

Mike Slone, along with his ASA Late Model competitors at Lebanon I-44 Speedway, will be back in action this Saturday night. The ASA Member Track in Lebanon, MO has been off the past two weeks. Slone is third overall with an average of 3.0285.

Barry Beggarly, continues to lead the Late Model standings at Ace Speedway in Altamahaw, NC by four points over Dustin Rumley. Their racing program was rained out this past Friday night. Beggarly is fourth with an average of 2.6302.

Wayne Webb continues to sit at the top of the standings in the Late Model Sportsman division at Newport Motor Speedway in Newport, TN. They will be back in action this Saturday night. He is fifth overall with an average of 2.4846. Michael Hale finished fifth in the Maverik Modified feature event this past Saturday night at Rocky Mountain Raceways in West Valley City, UT. He is sixth overall with an average of 2.0724.

Neil Knoblock still holds a two-point lead over Mark Eswein and Mark Mackesy in the Late Model standings at State Park Speedway in Wausau, WI. They will be back in action this Thursday night. He has an average of 1.8350.

Kyle Borden still holds the top spot in the ASA Modified standings at Shasta Speedway in Anderson, CA. Their next event is scheduled for Saturday, July 28^th. Borden has an average of 1.3704.

Throughout the season, drivers competing in the premiere divisions at eligible ASA Member Tracks are in the running for the 2012 ASA Member Track National Championship. In order to have a chance for the national title, a driver must first win their 2012 track championship.

ASA Member Track Competitors Showing Their Muscle This Season

July 18th, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – Many ASA Member Tracks are reaching the halfway point of their 2012 season. Some of the competitors are showing their muscle early while many ASA Member Tracks have welcomed a variety of winners in victory lane. Some of the ASA Member Track competitors are off to a strong start with their dominating performances. The question that many are asking is whether or not their domination will continue during the second half of the 2012 racing season.

Meridian Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Meridian, ID, has two drivers that are or were on a winning streak. Shelby Stroebel, has won all ten of the ASA Modified features so far this season. Going back to last season, his winning streak is at 12 victories. He currently leads the ASA Member Track National standings. Dylan Caldwell had his five-win streak come to an end this past Saturday night in the Late Model division. Chris Fenton beat Caldwell to the line by 0.16 seconds in their first of two feature events. Caldwell did come back to start a new streak, as he won the second feature.

Lance Gatlin won his seventh and eighth Limited Late Model features this past Saturday night at Lonesome Pine Raceway, an ASA Member Track in Coeburn, VA. Gatlin even had a $350 bounty for any competitor to end his streak. That bounty is now up to $400 next Saturday night. Eddie Hoffman is dominating the Late Model division at Illiana Motor Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Schererville, IN. He has won a majority of the feature events including his third Molenaar Classic in a row on July 7^th and last month’s Elmer Musgrave Memorial.

Two generations are showing their muscle at Ace Speedway’s Late Model division halfway through their season. Dustin Rumley, the 2010 track champion, already has three feature wins while Barry Beggarly, 2011 ASA Member Track National Champion and Ace Speedway Track Champion, has two wins. Currently, Beggarly has a four-point lead over Rumley in the 2012 track standings. JR Hotovy has won seven of the first ten UMP Late Model features at Hartford Motor Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Hartford, MI. He had a dominating night on July 6^th when he won both the UMP Late Model and UMP Modified feature events.

Skagit Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Algers, WA recently saw some domination by their four drivers currently leading their respective point standings. In fact, at their last event on July 8, 2012, all four won their main events. Eric Fisher leads the 410 Sprints while Trevor Turnbull leads in the 360 Sprints. Steve Parker sits at the top of the Sportsman Sprint standings while Freddie Vela leads the Outlaw Hornets. Turnbull has been the most dominant over the other three point leaders, while Fisher, Parker, and Vela are in tight point battles.

“We are watching some great racing action throughout our ASA Member Tracks this season,” Dennis Huth, ASA President said. “We have a great variety with drivers dominating at some ASA Member Tracks. The other tracks have some very wide-open competition with multiple winners. Nonetheless, the racing has been exciting to watch so far this season. The second half will be more fun to watch as many will have championships that will go down to the final lap.”

Nathan Haseleu: ASA Midwest Tour’s Ironman

July 14th, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – The Marshfield 100 ASA Midwest Tour event held on June 30, 2012 marked a milestone for the six-year-old series. The Tour held their 65^th event at Marshfield Motor Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Marshfield, WI. It was also the 65^th event for ASAMT Touring Star Nathan Haseleu.

The 34-year-old from Marshall, WI is the only driver to compete in all of the ASA Midwest Tour feature events since the series started in 2007. He won the championship during the inaugural season. Overall, he has six fast qualifier awards, four wins, 30 top-five and 49 top-ten finishes in those 65 starts.

“We have run every event since the ASA Midwest Tour started and been lucky enough to make every race as well. It has been fun,” Haseleu said at the 65^th event where he finished fifth. “I have seen some drivers come and go in this series. It is neat to see the series grow along with watching the younger drivers get better.” He has also enjoyed watching the ASA Midwest Tour grow as a series overall. “I think the organization and the quality of cars has always been good,” Haseleu said. “But mainly there are a lot of younger drivers now, than there were six years ago, they are real good and come
to run with us every week.”

When asked about his favorite moment in ASA Midwest Tour competition, Haseleu was quick to give an answer. “I would say when we won at Jefferson (WI) Speedway in 2007,” he said. “I grew up racing at the track. It is where I got my start and it was cool to win my first ASA Midwest Tour race there.” He also said that he enjoys traveling around and racing at the
different tracks. Some of his favorites included Iowa Speedway, Raceway Park in Shakopee, MN, Marshfield Motor Speedway and Wisconsin International Speedway near Kaukauna, WI.

One thing that has helped Haseleu through the first 65 races is the support of his long time sponsor RaceTeamGear.com. “We have been lucky enough to have the sponsorship from RaceTeamGear.com that has allowed us to run all of the races,” Haseleu said. “I am very lucky. It is a lot of fun traveling around and going to all of the races.”

Haseleu doesn’t show any sign of slowing down. In fact, he left Marshfield only 66 points behind current point leader Jonathan Eilen. No matter where he goes to compete, he is always a contender. “Nathan, along with his co-owner Joe Hunter, have been great supporters of the ASA Midwest Tour since the beginning and it is great that we can share this milestone together,” Tim Olson, ASA Midwest Tour President said. “I hope we can share more milestones like this as we continue to move forward with our fans and competitors. It is an honor to have Nathan Haseleu competing with us at each event.”

The next event for the ASA Midwest Tour is Friday, July 20 at Grundy County Speedway in Morris, IL for the annual Wayne Carter Classic event.

Stroebel’s Streak Keeps Him at the Top of the ASA Member Track National Standings

July 11th, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – Shelby Stroebel continues his dominance in the ASA Modified division at Meridian Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Meridian, ID. This past weekend he won his ninth and tenth features in a row this season. The victories
keep him at the top of the ASA Member Track National Standings.

Stroebel’s hot start to the season gives him an average of 3.2570. His win streak now at Meridian, going back to last season, is at 12.

Mike Slone continues to chase down Stroebel in the National Standings with his average of 2.6936. So far this season, he has visited victory lane three times.

Defending ASA Member Track National Champion Barry Beggarly is third in the standings with an average of 2.6302. He currently holds a four-point lead over Dustin Rumley in the Late Model Stock Car standings at Ace Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Altamahaw, NC.

Wayne Webb continues to lead the point standings at Newport Motor Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Newport, TN. He did pick up a feature win this past weekend but finished 12^th in the other feature event. He is fourth overall in the standings with an average of 2.2966.

Lance Gatlin is having the same kind of season as Shelby Stroebel. He is undefeated so far in the Limited Late Model standings at Lonesome Pine Raceway, an ASA Member Track in Coeburn, VA. In fact, Harold Crook, LPR Promoter, has put a $300 bounty for this Saturday night if another driver can beat Lance Gatlin. He is fifth overall in the standings with an average of 1.9944.

There is a very tight points battle in the Late Model division at State Park Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Wausau, WI. Neil Knoblock has a one-point lead over Mark Eswein and a two-point lead over Mark Mackesy in the standings. Knoblock is sixth overall with an average of 1.8350.

Michael Hale and the rest of the Maverik Modifieds will be back in action after a short break this Saturday night at Rocky Mountain Raceways, an ASA Member Track in West Valley City, UT. Hale currently has an average of 1.7488.

Kyle Borden continues to lead the ASA Modified standings at Shasta Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Anderson, CA. The crowd and the car counts are growing at the new ASA Member Track. Borden currently has an average of 1.3704.

“Shelby Stroebel is off to an unbelievable start this season,” Dennis Huth, ASA President said. “His start shouldn’t slow down the rest of the competitors for the ASA Member Track National Championship. Remember, we still have over two and a half months of racing left. Stroebel isn’t giving up and neither should anyone else. We see a battle brewing for the 2012 title.” Throughout the season, drivers competing in the premiere divisions at eligible ASA Member Tracks are in the running for the 2012 ASA Member Track National Championship. In order to have a chance for the national title, a driver must first win their 2012 track championship.

Stroebel Streak Keeps Him at the Top of the ASA Member Track National Standings

Stroebel will be back in action this Saturday night at the quarter-mile asphalt oval for twin feature events in the ASA Modified division. He currently has an average of 2.0283.

“We have some drivers that are off to a fast start this season,” Dennis Huth, ASA President said. “The one thing we all have to remember is that a racing season is not a sprint, but an endurance race. It will be interesting to watch and see if Shelby Stroebel and others can maintain their strong starts to the 2012 season. This is still early but will be fun to watch as we continue through the summer.”

Jimmie Johnson’s Oval Track Career Started with Howie Lettow in ASA Racing Competition

June 9th, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – Jimmie Johnson’s stellar career traces back to when he competed in the ASA National Series in 1998-99. With a background in off-road racing, Johnson was going into a different area and found one of the best mentors to help him with his transition, Howie Lettow.

The five-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion still clearly remembers the powerful impact that the famous crew chief had on his life. Lettow sadly passed away in 2010 after a battle with cancer.

The two met in 1998 when Johnson was hired to drive for Herzog Motorsports. Lettow helped introduce Johnson to ASA Racing after a successful run in off-road racing.

“My ASA days, spending time with Howie, I didn’t know a thing about stock cars so I literally remember sitting with Howie and asking him questions about what is cross weight or wedge? What’s the trackbar? You know, all the things I know by heart now,” Johnson recalled. “I know exactly what they do now, but I didn’t have a clue coming from off-road (racing).”

It was the classic student/teacher relationship that Johnson and Lettow had during his ASA Racing career. “When I think back to ASA, it’s really my college years of racing if you will,” Johnson said. “There was a lot of learning going on and understanding stock cars and how to get them to go faster in the turns. I also remember a book that Howie gave me, and a VHS tape from a guy named Duke Sutherland that was like Stock Car Racing 101. I’d study my book at night and quiz Howie on what stuff was. I had the hardest time understanding what wedge was and he literally took a plastic table and mimicked sawing a leg off of one of the four corners and how that would work. He really opened my eyes to stock cars and how different they were more than anything else I’d ever done.”

Johnson would finish fourth in points during the 1998 season and would win the Pat Schauer Rookie of the Year title. “We won the Pat Schauer Rookie of the Year which was a huge honor and something that Howie had done many times. It was the biggest paying thing at that time and Howie would bring in these awesome short track racers from around the country that didn’t race in ASA. Each driver was technically a rookie, and they would come in and win these honors. The Herzogs acquired the team and that was our goal, and we were able to do that. We finished really well in points that first year.”

In 1999, Johnson showed the teacher that the student was learning and proved it on the track and in the standings. He won his first ASA National Series event at Memphis Raceway Park and would also win the season finale at Orange County Speedway. He finished third in the point standings. “I know the second year we came back and I won two races and finished third in the points. To win a race and have that moment with Howie, he was like a proud father, watching me basically go from ground zero up to being able to win at that level.”

During those two years, Johnson learned a lot being with Howie Lettow and still today cherishes that special time with him. “There’s a lot of great memories, from learning, to traveling on the road, and the different truck stops where we would stop and get a good meal and wash the transporter before we got to the track,” Johnson remembered. “There’s just a ton of memories like that.”

“Jimmie Johnson is a perfect example of ASA’s long standing tagline ‘We Build Champions’ and Howie Lettow knew how to build them,” Dennis Huth, ASA President said. “There are many successful drivers that Howie mentored and molded into successful stars today. He is still missed in the pits today, but his legacy is going to last for a very long time.”

The ASA Midwest Tour is honoring Howie Lettow with the first ever Swiss ColonyHowie Lettow Memorial 150 presented by raceteamgear.com next Tuesday night at the Milwaukee Mile in West Allis, WI. The Milwaukee Mile is less than an hour away from Howie’s hometown of Watertown, WI.

Many former ASA competitors and drivers will be coming to compete in the event and help honor this famous crew chief with today’s ASA Midwest Tour stars. Such stars like 2013 NASCAR Hall of Fame Inductee Rusty Wallace, 2012 Daytona 500 Champion Matt Kenseth, former ASA Howie Lettow driver David Stremme, David Ragan, Aric Almirola and more.

Tickets are still on sale at www.asarace.com. A limited number of VIP tickets are still available for this event.

Rusty Wallace Excited to Return to the Milwaukee Mile in Honor of Howie Lettow

June 1st, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – Rusty Wallace was all smiles on Wednesday as he got behind the wheel of his Steve Leavitt built Ford Fusion at the famous Milwaukee Mile oval. Wallace is coming out of retirement to compete in the Howie Lettow Memorial 150 ASA Midwest Tour event on June 12 at 7pm.

Wallace, who was recently elected to the 2013 NASCAR Hall of Fame class, decided to do this race for one reason. “I would never, ever come out of retirement unless it was for Howie,” Wallace said as he talked about the famous short track crew chief that passed away after a battle with cancer in August, 2010. “He was a fantastic crew chief for Jimmie Johnson, Mark Martin, Alan Kulwicki and others. He was a great friend of mine.”

Another factor in the decision was where the event was going to take place. “I would never do this unless it was at this track,” Wallace said about the Milwaukee Mile. “I have won here five times. It has been a wonderful track for me. Miller Brewing Company is from here, one of my main sponsors when I raced in Cup. I would do it here or at Iowa Speedway, the track I designed, but I don’t think I would do this anywhere else.”

When the Howie Lettow Memorial 150 was announced, it was Stephen Wallace who encouraged his father to get back behind the wheel. “There is really no reason for me to do this, but I like the place and my son was on me big time to do this,” Wallace recalled. “I said OK, let’s build a good car, get our act together, let’s go there and try to win this race. If we were going to take that approach, I would go for it. That is what we did.”

Wallace will drive his famous #66 sponsored by Jimmy Johns subs and Guiffre Brothers Cranes. “This racetrack knows me very well with the #66,” Wallace said. “All it knows is 66 with me driving it.”

He was all business on Wednesday during the daylong test session. Stephen Wallace took the car our early to shake it down and help find a good setup for his dad. It wasn’t soon after that Rusty put on his driving suit and was taking laps himself. During the press conference he talked about some of the changes he noticed in the track like the rumble strips in the turns, but overall it still felt like the Milwaukee Mile he remembers.

He also talked about the support he is getting from his colleagues at ESPN to others in the racing community. “Many thought that I was silly in coming back. When I told them that I am coming back to my roots, they liked it,” Wallace said.

Those roots include his career in ASA Racing. Wallace is the 1983 ASA Champion and won an ASA event at the Milwaukee Mile in 1985.

Wallace is also intrigued with the ASA Midwest Tour. “I’m real interested in the ASA Midwest Tour, especially with the way their cars look now,” Wallace explained. “ASA has gone through many different looks. I really like the way the cars look now, along with the engines in them and the whole deal. Racing has given me a little pep in my steps.”

Wallace will be competing with the best that the ASA Midwest Tour has to offer along with current NASCAR stars Matt Kenseth, Aric Almirola, David Ragan, and David Stremme. There will also be second generation stars like Ross Kenseth, Chase Elliott and John Hunter Nemechek.

Wallace is looking forward to competing against this star-studded field mixed with NASCAR and ASA Midwest Tour stars. He also realizes what he could expect with an event like this on June 12. “I’m going to run hard and I am going to have guys that I never heard of or haven’t raced with that I know are really good and want to win real bad,” Wallace said. “We have to keep our eye on them because they are going to be aggressive. I know Matt Kenseth’s style along with the other NASCAR drivers. Those guys know about give and take, the others I don’t know but I will be aware of that.”

The one thing constantly heard throughout the day from Hall of Famer, he is coming to win and not take second.

“Everyone at ASA Racing is looking forward to having Rusty Wallace compete again in one of our sanctioned events,” Dennis Huth, ASA President said. “Rusty has become a great ambassador for auto racing and we are excited that he has chosen to compete in this ASA Midwest Tour event that honors one of the more successful crew chiefs in ASA Racing history.”

Tickets are available now at asarace.com. Qualifying is scheduled for 1pm with preliminary races at 4pm. The feature events will start at 7pm. The ASA Midwest Truck Tour and Big 8 Series will also be competing on June 12 in support of the Howie Lettow Memorial 150.

ASA Sanctioned Norway Speedway is Still Home for Jamie Iverson and His Family

May 19th, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – The haulers will be rolling in to Norway Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Norway, MI this Friday afternoon for their season opener. One hauler will have a famous #97 on the side that makes the other competitors realize they will face some tough competition that night.

Jamie Iverson, along with his wife Julie, son Robby and daughter Mandy will make the trip from Escanaba, MI to their 1/3-mile, slightly banked, asphalt oval where he will defend his season opener win last year. The seven-time track champion, you could say, is slowly going into a transitional phase in his career. Last season, the 21-year-old got behind the wheel of the famous #97 Red Ford Fusion and started competing himself at Norway Speedway under the close guidance of his father. “We had some fun with that. He is learning and having a great time,” the proud father said. “The more laps he does, the better he will do. We went to practice last weekend and we each got about 30-40 laps each, so we should be good to go this season.”

When asked about the future plans for Robby, Jamie has a simple answer, “We will play it by ear,” he stated. “Robby just wants to go out and have fun and we will see what will happen.” Jamie hasn’t said that he is ready to hang it up yet, but with a busy schedule at work, along with Robby’s interest, he has no problem sharing the wheel, especially at a track that he knows very well.

Norway Speedway has been the home track for the Iversons for three generations. Jamie’s father, legendary short track racer Bobby Iverson, raced there while Jamie started in Street Stocks. The track was also the place where Bobby handed his wheel over to Jamie. “My dad’s career was winding down,” Iverson recalled. “We went out and won eight Street Stock features and my dad told me it was time for me to move up to a late model.” He went out and won the track championship in 1995, 96, 98, 2000, 2002, 2005, and 2006. In 2007, he traveled with the ASA Midwest Tour where he is a four-time winner of their annual event at Norway Speedway (2007-10). Iverson had great battles with Dan Fredrickson, Steve Carlson and the other ASA Midwest Tour competitors that gave the Norway Speedway fans some great memories. This season, Jamie and Robby will be sharing the famous #97 red Ford Fusion. Jamie will be running in the special events and like he said earlier, play it by ear.

The Dickinson County Racing Association operates the track, and they are happy to have the seven-time champion competing on Friday nights. “From a track perspective, it is great to have him and his family back as part of our Friday night program,” Caleb Fulcher, DCRA Treasurer said. “I personally remember when Bobby ran in the Late Models and Jamie competed in our Super Stock division. It is neat to have a third generation Iverson competing at Norway Speedway.”

Norway Speedway opens their 2012 season this Friday night with the grandstands opening at 5pm, Qualifying at 6pm and Racing at 7pm. The Late Models, Super Stocks, and the DQ Dogs Fab 4 divsions will be in action.

Defending ASA Pro Trucks Series Champion Wins at Rocky Mountain Raceways

May 17th, 2012

TWIN FALLS, ID – Horsepower Heaven at Rocky Mountain Raceway included the ASA Pro Trucks as part of the oval track
action. Defending series Champion Jerry Rice did his part making sure the fans got to see an action packed race. Rice started 12^th in the field and made his way to the lead on lap twenty-eight of the forty lap main event. The combination of his main event win, passing points and heat race points propelled Rice into the season point standings lead.

Drew Reitsma had his best Rocky Mountain Raceway finish bringing home second after winning his heat race. Sam Harris had his best finish at Rocky Mountain Raceway coming across the line just three tenths of a second behind Reitsma. Harris had made it as high as second but with a green white checkered finish. Harris chose the outside grove in an attempt to give Rice a run for the win. Rice got the jump on the restart and Reitsma hung with his following him to the line.

Jeff Pohlman was able to hold on for a fourth place finish after spending much of the practice time in the pits with carburetion issues. Johnny Pierre offered up the much needed carburetor allowing Pohlman to race. Pohlman was given a little heat at the drivers meeting and was given a Hot Pink Childs Booster Seat! “Jeff said he was having trouble seeing over the dash and hood last week and that is why he kept hitting the back of Rice, so we decided he needed an official ASA Pro Truck Booster seat” said series director Randy Kerr in the drivers meeting. “I think sometimes you can make a point without making it a huge issue, Jeff asked me after the meeting if he could pass it on if anyone else deserved it. I also noticed he really didn’t use his bumper during the race so, I guess it worked” said Kerr after the event.

Alan Larson rounded out the top five after setting the pace in the second practice session. “We haven’t really worked on the car much, I was building a shop and just didn’t have the time. Dugger came over this week and we lowered the truck like 4 inches. It really turns a lot better now” said Larson after the second practice.

Several driver made their season debut. Kent Jensen brought out the number 11 and had made his way up to the fourth position before contact with Scott Luttmer sent the two to the back of the field with only two laps left in the race. Bo Sharp returned in the teams backup truck after having trouble getting the new body mounted on the primary truck. Sharp was able to set fast time putting him at the rear of the field for the start of the race. Sharp motored the truck to a seventh place finish. Chad Radmall brought the number zero out for the first time in three years. “I’m just a little rusty, when it started going around all I could think was stay on the gas and try to get out of the way” said Radmall after spinning the truck exiting turn four while leading the race.

Rice was presented with a $50 gift certificate to Ultra Cool Brake Fans. Ultra Cool is a proud supporter of the ASA Racing and the ASA Pro Truck Series. Ultra Cool can be found at www.ultracoolbrakefans.com The Ultra Cool move lasted for over twenty laps as Rice slowly and patiently picked off his competition one by one on his way to the front.

The ASA Pro Trucks return to action June 2nd 2012 at Magic Valley Speedway on the third mile oval. The ASA Pro Trucks will be the feature division with a fifty lap main event scheduled.

ASA Sanctioned Shangri-La II Motor Speedway Continues to See Growth in their Fourth Season

May 12th, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – Four years ago, George Swansbrough opened Shangri-La II Motor Speedway in Tioga Center, NY. He did
something unique with this ASA Member Track; he made it his “Concrete Castle.”

The half-mile, semi-banked concrete oval located west of Owego, NY will open their fourth season this Sunday with an afternoon race program with five divisions of racing at 3:00pm.

Amy Stilson, Shangri-La II General Manager, is ready for the season to open and enjoying the growth that she continues to see at the speedway. “When George opened this track four years ago, we knew that we had something unique to grow on both in the pits and in the stands,” Stilson said. “We are moving forward in that growth. We are also focusing on being more
consistent with what we do at Shangri-La II Motor Speedway. The growth and consistency in providing an entertaining show, I feel, will bring more fans and cars to our track.”

Stilson and her staff are not afraid to think outside the box when it comes to entertaining the race fans. When you look at their 2012 racing schedule, each night just isn’t a race night but it has a special theme to that night of racing. Such as this Sunday’s opener called “Mother’s Day Madness.”

She is also excited to have Shangri-La II sanctioned as an ASA Member Track for the fourth year. “I feel that ASA Racing is going to continue to grow as a sanctioning body, and I am happy that we got sanctioned when the track opened four years ago,” Stilson said. “I think ASA Racing is going to have a big impact in short track racing, and Shangri-La II is ready to grow with them.”

While racing is on everyone’s mind, they are also thinking about long time track announcer/writer Al Robinson, who is recovering from an illness and continues his rehabilitation. Shangri-La II will kick off this weekend on Friday and Saturday with the Al Robinson Benefit. Stilson said they have a lot of great donations from the racing community that will be auctioned off to help raise money for Robinson’s medical expenses. More details about this weekend’s fundraiser is available on their website www.shangrila-2.com.

“We are enthused with the growth of Shangri-La II Motor Speedway as they enter their fourth season of racing,” Dennis Huth, ASA President said. “George Swansbrough, Amy Stilson and their staff continue to work hard on making their shows to be entertaining for all ages. We wish them nothing but success for the 2012 season.”

Along with the Al Robinson Fundraiser and the season opener on Sunday, the track will be open for practice on Saturday from 2-6pm. On Sunday, the gates open at 1:30pm with hot laps from 1-2:30pm with the racing program starting at 3pm.

Luttmer Takes ASA Pro Trucks Series Win at Magic Valley Speedway

May 2nd, 2012

TWIN FALLS, ID – Defending event winner Scott Luttmer proves he has not forgotten what it takes to win. After taking the
checkered flag in the season opener in 2011 the winners circle, Luttmer had failed to find the winners circle again. After a sixth place Qualifying effort Luttmer started in the fourth starting position. By lap four Luttmer grabbed the lead away from Doug Dugger and never looked back.

It looked like Fast Qualifier and former Champion Jeff Pohlman would be the man to beat moving up to third place by lap seven. By lap thirteen Pohlman and defending Champion Jerry Rice had been battling hard. Contact between the two had been going on for several laps when the two got together and Dugger saw an opportunity to gain a position or two. As Dugger made the move he and Pohlman got together sending both trucks to the pits while bringing out the only caution in the forty lap main event. Pohlman was able to return remaining on the lead lap but suspension damage kept him from being the
threat for the win in the remaining laps.

“We had a really good truck tonight it’s too bad it turned out the way it did. I hoped to put it in the winners circle for Johnny,” Pohlman was driving a truck for Johnny Newhouse, the truck is for sale and Newhouse felt Pohlman was a good choice to show the trucks ability. “I knew it was a good truck and Jeff was a good driver but when Hannah (Newhouse) had fast time and Jeff knocked her off the pole I felt really good about having both trucks one and two but had hoped Hannah would have had the fast time.”

Newhouse started at the rear next to Pohlman and the fifteen year old made a great run moving as high as second before the handling went away dropping her back to a fourth place finish. This is Newhouse’s first start in a truck in twenty twelve but her third at Magic Valley Speedway this season. In her Thompson Motorsports Super Stock Newhouse has already claimed a win and a third. This event givers her three top fives in as many events. Defending Champion Jerry Rice finished second but not without a lot of pressure from Drew Reitsma. “If we just would have had another five or ten
laps I think I could have gotten him” said Reitsma after the race.

Johnny Pierre rounded out the top five. “ I went low to avoid the Dugger Pohlman deal and we must have bent something in the suspension, we were really good just buying time and after dropping off the track it just didn’t handle the same”. Pierre was determined the winner of the “Cool Move of the Race” for is evasive actions missing the wreck in front of him.
Pierre was presented with a $50 gift certificate to Ultra Cool Brake Fans. Ultra Cool is a proud supporter of the ASA Racing and the ASA Pro Truck Series. Ultra Cool can be found at www.ultracoolbrakefans.com

ASA Stars to Watch in 2012: Shelby Stroebel

April 20th, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL– Last year, Shelby Stroebel dealt with a roller coaster of emotions at Meridian Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Meridian, ID. He won the ASA Modified Championship and lost one of his biggest fans.

In 2012, his focus is to repeat as the track champion and win the ASA Member Track National Championship. “My goal in 2012 is the same as it was in 2011, the ASA Member Track National Championship,” the Boise, ID resident said. “It’s a goal that I definitely want to achieve and it is going to be on my goal list until we do that.” Last season, Stroebel captured the ASA Modified championship at the quarter-mile asphalt oval. It most of his races, he started near the back
of the field but at the end you would see his #24 Modified towards the front or in victory lane. “The invert has us starting near the back in many of our races,” Stroebel said. “I like that because it makes you a really good racer and the win is more satisfying when you have to come through the field and earn it.”

In 2011, Stroebel competed in 15 events where had had six wins and 15 top-five finishes. One thing that has helped Stroebel at Meridian is using the outside groove. “Meridian Speedway was re-paved in 2009 and we now have two good grooves,” Stroebel explained. “The outside groove is pretty good and the tires grip very well.” Stroebel started racing as a way to keep his father Allen busy after the patriarch was diagnosed with leukemia. Racing proved to do well as it went into remission, but returned last year. Sadly, Allen Stroebel lost his battle a few days after Shelby wrapped up the track championship. A week later, Adam Nelson, Promoter of Meridian Speedway, named a Modified event in honor of Allen. Shelby made a move on the outside, coming out of turn four, on the last lap to win the event.

“It has been a struggle during the off season and getting ready for this season without having him around and helping us with the race car,” Stroebel said. “But I have a few good friends who have been helping me. We stay focused on that because he would have wanted us too. The main thing is that we continue racing.”

Along with working on his own race car, he is also helping his daughter Caitlin get ready for another season of racing her Legend car at Meridian Speedway. She may also run some races in the ASA Modifieds this season.

“If he leads off this season like he did last year, the rest of the competitors will have their work cut out to beat him,” Adam Nelson, Meridian Speedway Promoter said. “He was a contender for the National championship in 2011, and he could be the one to catch in 2012.”

This Saturday night, Stroebel will start his ASA Modified title defense at Meridian Speedway. They will kick off the season with a 50-lap feature event. Racing gets underway at 6:30pm. More information can be found at www.meridianspeedway.com.

ASA Sanctioned Dillon Motor Speedway’s 2012 Season Already Off to a Great Start

April 14th, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL– Ron Barfield Jr. is already enjoying 2012 as his family recently welcomed a new son into their family. His track, Dillon Motor Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Dillon, SC, has two successful events in the books this season and is preparing for more success in 2012.

“We kicked off 2012 with a great New Year’s Day event along with a successful PASS Series race,” Barfield said. “We already has some big events and have a lot more happening in 2012.”

Dillon Motor Speedway kicked off their 2012 season on New Year’s Day with their second annual New Years Day Raceolution event with over 100 cars competing that day. “This event is getting bigger every year as the car count for this year’s event doubled over last year’s event,” Barfield said. “We had great weather this year, and we know that really helped get many street stock competitors out racing that day.”

Last month, Dillon Motor Speedway hosted a PASS South Series event, which drew a star-studded field and a great crowd. They will host an Open House on Saturday, April 14 before starting their weekly program on Saturday, April 21.

Throughout their 2012 season fans who visit the 4/10-mile asphalt oval will have an opportunity to see a variety of divisions from Late Models, Super Trucks, Chargers, Street Stocks, 4 Cylinders, UCAR and Mini Cup cars compete on Saturday nights.

Earlier this season, Dillon Motor Speedway introduced their “Full Throttle” program utilizing social media, an interactive website and live streaming of a few selected races. “Our idea is to help grow the identity of Dillon Motor Speedway and give fans an example of who we are and what we do here,” Barfield said. “Hunter Thomas, our PR Director, has been putting this plan together and we look forward to the results.”

“Ron Barfield and I have a friendship that goes back to when he competed in the NASCAR Truck Series, and it is a pleasure to see the success that he and his staff is having at Dillon Motor Speedway,” Dennis Huth, ASA President said. “Dillon Motor Speedway is a very competitive track that provides great entertaining racing every Saturday night. We wish them the best for the 2012 season.”

ASA Sanctioned Skagit Speedway has Great Momentum Going into the 2012 Season

April 11th, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL– The off-season has been very busy for Steve Beitler and his staff at Skagit Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Alger, WA. At the beginning of 2012, Beitler was nominated for the Auto Racing Promoter of the Year. He also brought in some new staff members who are fitting in very well. These two things are a great momentum builder for the 2012 season.

“I’m excited about the 2012 season. Our car count looks like it is growing nicely in all classes, and our fans are very excited,” Beitler said. “We’ve added some new members to our speedway team and everyone has worked very hard this winter. I am looking forward to a great 2012 season.”

Skagit’s 2012 season opens on Saturday, April 21 at 7:00pm. They will kick off their 58^th season of racing with 410 Sprints, 360 Sprints, Sportsman Sprints and Outlaw Hornets. The track is open for practice on Saturday, April 7 and Saturday, April 14.

Along with some new staff coming on board during the off-season, Skagit Speedway also made some major improvements to their pit area in order to accommodate more haulers. This past week, the staff was busy putting up billboards and power washing the grandstands.

Beitler also said that an advance ticket sale for their three major events is going well. Those three major events include the Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup on June 14-16, 360 Nationals on July 27-28, and the World of Outlaws on August 31-September 1. Tickets are on sale now by calling 360-724-3567.

Skagit Speedway is also returning as an ASA Member Track for the 2012 season. “We’re happy to continue our association with ASA Racing,” Beitler exclaimed. “It has been a good relation for the race track and the racers.”

“We are very proud to have Skagit Speedway as part of our ASA Member Track program,” Dennis Huth, ASA President said. “Steve Beitler and his staff have done a great job with their exciting schedule and race program. Steve’s unique marketing approach is catching the attention of other promoters. For his efforts, he has been nominated for the Auto Racing Promoter of the Year two out of the last three years. Even his Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup has won awards at the RPM Workshops and WARPA convention. We wish them continued success in 2012.”

ASA Racing Welcomes Ultra Cool Brake System as “Official Brake Cooling System”

April 9th, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – ASA Racing is proud to announce an agreement with Ultra Cool Brake Fans as the “Official Brake Cooling System” for the 2012 season. This contingency partnership is a benefit for competitors racing in the asphalt ASA Member Tracks and Sanctioned Series.

Throughout the season, Ultra Cool Fan Brakes will present product certificates at various ASA Member Tracks and ASA Sanctioned Series events. “This is a great opportunity for Ultra Cool Brake Fans to make our product available within the ASA family,” Jerry Robertson, Ultra Cool Brake Fans President said. “We feel that we have a product that will save competitors money and we hope many take advantage of it.”

Ultra Cool Brake Fans is a new innovative product that is designed to help racers in brake heat disbursement. Their product has been race tested and has proven to keep brakes cooler on the track. The brake fans fit securely within the wheel and are less likely to damage during on-track action. This is the only product on the market that cools the wheel side of the caliper. It pumps more CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute) than conventional brake blowers. It weighs less than conventional brake ducts and blowers.

ASA Sanctioned Newport Motor Speedway Ready to Roar Back to Life This Saturday Night

April 7th, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – The Smoky Mountains are known for beauty and peaceful surroundings. But that will change this Saturday night, as Newport Motor Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Newport, TN, will open their 2012 season with a twin 50-lap feature event for the Late Model Sportsman division.

“We are ready to roar back to life after the winter break this weekend and we are excited to do it under the ASA banner for the second year,” Ron Crane, Newport Motor Speedway General Manager said. “Last year, our competitors in the Late Model Sportsman division had a fast and impressive impact with the ASA Member Track National Championship. Three of our
drivers finished in the top ten in the ASA East Region standings and Zack Franks finished second place overall in the national standings. We can’t wait for the 2012 season to start.”

Newport Motor Speedway is affectionately known as “Little Bristol.” The 4/10-mile high-banked asphalt oval provides thrilling and competitive racing every Saturday night. The Late Model Sportsman cars are their marquee division. Fans will also enjoy watching the Super Late Models, Street Stocks, Front Wheel Drive, Modified 4’s, Legends, and Mini Cups featuring drivers from Eastern Tennessee and Western North Carolina.

Throughout the season, along with their regular divisions, Newport Motor Speedway will also welcome the ASA ISCARS Series, Southeast Limited Late Models, the Southeast Super Truck Series, and UARA Late Models.

“Newport Motor Speedway fit perfectly into our ASA Member Track program last season and they had a huge impact with our National Championship. We are excited they are back for the 2012 season with ASA Racing,” Dennis Huth, ASA Racing President said. “Ed Surrett, Ron Crane and their entire staff provide a great racing program every Saturday night. The track itself provides fast, exciting side-by-side racing action that leaves fans on the edge of their seats. Their talented groups of drivers are quickly becoming household names. We wish them nothing but success this season.”

ASA Sanctioned Ace Speedway Becoming the Place for Young Drivers to Challenge the Veterans

April 6th, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – Brad Allen could be managing a gold mine otherwise known as Ace Speedway. The 4/10-mile asphalt oval
located in Altamahaw, NC is entering its third year as an ASA Member Track and is home of the 2011 ASA Member Track National Champion.

Allen is also entering his third season as the General Manager. Under his supervision, Ace Speedway has seen growth not only in the stands but also in the pits as well.

The past two Late Model division Champions were also contenders for the ASA Member Track National Championship. Barry Beggarly won the national title in 2011 and Dustin Rumley came within 0.0028 of winning the crown in 2010. What is interesting is that Beggarly is in his 60’s and Rumley is in his early 20’s, which highlights what is well known in short track racing, multi-generations competing at one track.

With this record going into the 2012 season, Brad Allen is confident that his top division will be fun to watch. “We will have a field that will rival any other in short track racing,” Allen exclaimed. “We have the defending ASA Member Track National Champion coming back this year and the young guns are going to try to knock the veteran off of the mountain.”

Allen enjoys watching the different generations compete every Friday night. “It’s pretty cool watching how a veteran like Barry Beggarly controls his car and then you watch a young driver like Dustin Rumley or Dillon Bassett do the same thing and you can’t believe how they do it and learn this quick.”

Bassett is a 14-year-old driver who won the Limited Late Model championship last season over Ziggy Zimmerman and Ross “Boo Boo” Dalton.

Ace Speedway has become a track in North Carolina to help young drivers develop their skills. “We are more than happy to welcome them here and take them through our college here at Ace Speedway,” Allen said. “We like the fact that Ace Speedway is becoming the place for a young driver, like Jeb Burton was last year, gain some experience to help them move up to the next level or become a short track hero like Barry Beggarly has become today.”

“We are very proud to have Ace Speedway as part of the ASA Member Track program, and especially proud of how Brad Allen and his staff have turned this speedway around to be successful,” Dennis Huth, ASA Racing President said. “Many fans were worried about the future of Ace Speedway until Brad came on board in 2009. But he and his staff have made the track successful again and the fans and competitors are responding positively to what they are doing there. We wish them a successful 2012 season.”

Ace Speedway kicks off their 2012 season on Friday, April 6 with the Late Models, Limited Late Models, Mini Stocks, and Extremes in action. There will also be an Easter egg hunt for the kids. Racing starts at 8:00pm.

ASA PRO Trucks Series Signs Long-Term Licensing Agreement With ASA Racing

March 27th, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – ASA President Dennis Huth announced a long-term agreement today with the ASA Pro Trucks Series. The Series formerly known as the Intermountain Pro Trucks joins the ASA Family of sanctioned series.

“This is an incredible opportunity for our series,” Randy Kerr, ASA Pro Trucks Series Promoter said. “Our agreement with ASA Racing will help take our series to a new level. This is a great way for us to move forward. Our long-term arrangement will help us accomplish our goal of being recognized as the top oval truck series competing in Idaho and Utah.”

The name change will also help re-brand the series in order to gain more identity. “We have been looking at changing our name from the Intermountain Pro Trucks to just the Pro Trucks,” Kerr explained. “When we started talking to Dennis Huth about being sanctioned with ASA, the ASA Pro Trucks Series name sounded perfect with our long term goals.”

The ASA Pro Trucks Series becomes the third regional truck series sanctioned by ASA. They join the ASA Truck Series that competes in the Southwest and the ASA Midwest Truck Tour.

Kerr and Huth have a friendship that goes back to when Huth was involved in the creation of the NASCAR Truck Series in the 1990’s. “I still remember being at Mesa Marin when Dennis made the announcement,” Kerr recalled. “Who would have thought how far oval truck racing has come since that announcement.”

“Everyone at ASA Racing welcomes Randy Kerr and the ASA Pro Trucks Series to our family of ASA Member Tracks and Series,” Huth said. “The ASA Pro Trucks Series have put on some of the best competitive side-by-side racing. Our ASA Member Track promoters speak very highly of their professionalism and great entertaining shows that they provide for their fans. We look forward to our long-term and successful relationship.”

The 2012 ASA Pro Trucks Series schedule will have ten events at three different tracks. Two of which are ASA Member Tracks. They will kick off their season on Saturday, April 28 at Magic Valley Speedway in Twin Falls, ID.

ASA Stars to Watch in 2012: Dustin Rumley

March 21st, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – At the age of 22, Dustin Rumley has already seen the highs and lows of short track racing. He has also learned how those lows can easily turn around and give you success.

It was back on April 9, 2010 when Rumley was running in the feature event at Ace Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Altamahaw, NC, when he got involved in an accident during a feature event that caused his car to catch on fire. Rumley was able to safely exit the car, but the car itself was gone.

He would miss the next two events as he and his father Mark built a new car at their McLeansville, NC shop. His return on May 7, 2010 was successful as he finished second in the feature event. He would go on to capturing four wins, 14 top-five and 17 top-tens en route to the 2010 Late Model Championship at Ace Speedway.

Not only did Rumley win the track championship, but came within 0.0028 of winning the 2010 ASA Member Track National Championship. He finished second, in the closest margin to date, to National Champion Bryan Wordelman from Rocky Mountain Raceways, an ASA Member Track in West Valley City, UT.

“I learned that no matter how far down you fall, you can always pick yourself up,” Rumley said. “This sport is like a roller coaster ride. You can be a hero one week and be a zero next week.”

He started his racing career at the age of 8 competing in go-karts all across North Carolina where he won several championships. Rumley moved up to Legends where he competed in the Summer Shootout Series at Charlotte Motor Speedway. He then progressed up to Limited Late Models at Ace Speedway and Caraway Speedway where he won at both tracks until moving up to the Late Models at Ace Speedway where he finished third in the standings in 2009.

“Racing at Ace Speedway is nice,” Rumley said. “It is a great track and I love racing on Friday nights. It is a lot of pressure to perform being a past champion, but it is really cool being so young and already having a championship on my resume.”

This past season, he finished third in points with eight top-five and 13 top-tens in 16 starts.

Even though his 2011 season didn’t mirror what he accomplished in 2010, that hasn’t slowed down Rumley’s motivation. “All of the races are tough and I have to drive 110% all the time.” Rumley explained.

Dustin looks at his father Mark as a great mentor. Mark has also competed at Ace Speedway and now spots for the champion driver. With his dad’s help, Dustin knows what he has to do in order to be more successful in racing. “I’ve learned a lot being a Late Model driver,” Rumley said. “You really learn to drive and running longer races especially with how to set up a car for those events.”

As far as his future plans, Rumley is taking it one day at a time. “I’m not really sure,” he said. “We will just have to see what happens.”

“The Rumley family has been a staple at Ace Speedway over the last four decades and it is great to watch Dustin keep the lineage going,” Brad Allen, Ace Speedway Promoter said. “He came close to winning the ASA Member Track National Championship in 2010. He struggled a little during the 2011 season, but had a strong finish. He has a large fan base. He is a great young driver but a hard nose competitor. He is definitely one to watch in 2012.”

Rumley will start his personal chase for the 2012 Late Model Championship at Ace Speedway on Friday, April 6 with regular season opener.

ASA Stars to Watch in 2012: JC Newell

March 12th, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – He is only 15-years-old and is already a champion driver. This season JC Newell from Stoutland, MO will have stiff competition at Lebanon I-44 Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Lebanon, MO. That competition is very close to his heart and great mentors.

“My grandpa JC Newell and my dad Ben Newell will be competing in the Sportsman division with me,” the third generation driver said. “I am super excited to get to race with my mentors!”

His grandfather is a member of the Ozark Area Hall of Fame and his father has been racing for 27 years. The fans at I-44 Speedway will have the special honor of watching three generations compete every Saturday night this season.

The young driver is already making a name for himself in short track racing. He started racing when he was five years old. He won the Missouri State Championship in 2002. While traveling around Missouri racing, he won over 75 go-kart races.

At the age of 13, he started racing dirt Midwest Modifieds where he won on his very first night in the car. That same year, he went on to win 17 features and a track championship at Midway Speedway and finished second in points at Springfield Raceway.

Last season, he took on the challenge of racing on both dirt and asphalt where he drove his Modified on the area dirt tracks and competed in the Sportsman division at I-44’s 3/8-mile high-banked asphalt oval. At the end of the season, he won 15 features in the Midwest Modified and won the track championship at Midway Speedway. He finished second in the Sportsman division points at I-44 Speedway with one feature win. He also tried out the Modified division at I-44 Speedway last season on a part-time basis.

“I really like the facility at Lebanon I-44 Speedway,” Newell said. “We have a great promoter and staff. We have the best fan base around. I-44 is a very fan friendly, fast and a high-banked speedway.”

Along with running in the Sportsman division this season, he will also be running a limited schedule in I-44’s Modified division as well. Racing isn’t the only thing on his mind. He also plays basketball for Stoutland (MO) High School where they recently finished their season with a 14-12 record.

“My future plan is to build a career in racing,” Newell said. “I hope to compete in an ASA Late Model traveling series like the ASA Midwest Tour in the next couple of years and work my way up to NASCAR.”

“It is easy to say that with him having a hall of fame grandfather and a successful father as winning drivers, the acorn doesn’t fall far from the tree,” Craig Armstrong, Lebanon I-44 Speedway Promoter said. “He is an extremely talented and mature young man. His potential is tremendous. It simply boils down to having a car that is set up correctly and for him to keep his focus. As long as he finishes well and wins, his natural talent will guide him to a successful future in auto racing.”

Fans can follow JC Newell’s progress during the 2012 season by visiting Lebanon I-44 Speedway’s website at www.i44speedway.net.

Shasta Speedway Under New Management and Joins the ASA Member Track Program

March 10th, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – ASA Racing is proud to welcome Shasta Speedway in Anderson, CA as part of their ASA Member Track program. The 3/8-mile asphalt track in Anderson, CA will also be racing under new management for the 2012 season.

A three-person team recently received the management rights from the Shasta District Fairgrounds and the 27^th District Agricultural Association to operate the track located on the fairgrounds.

The team consists of Adam Nelson, George Wade and Seth Sands. All are coming in with well-versed short track operational experience that will recharge Shasta Speedway’s direction towards a consistent entertainment experience for both fans and racers. All three understand that there has to be an entertainment value included to excite the fan base, and that fair and impartial officiating must be employed to satisfy the competitors. Both the competitors and fans want to see healthy and heated competition on the track.

“The three of us have grown up around short track racing, we’ve raced cars, we’ve worked in the concessions, we’ve sold and mounted tires, we’ve written rule books (good and bad ones), we’ve planned schedules, we’ve scored races (by hand and with a computer), we’ve picked up the trash after a weekly race, and we’ve cleaned up the carnage of a boat race. We all feel well rounded, and we see a great opportunity to share that with the folks at Shasta Speedway,” Adam Nelson, one of the partners said. “The three of us know that Anderson, California has a storied history of successful events
and a roster of talented racecar drivers (past and present). Shasta Speedway has proven to be a great place for short track racing but recent attendance figures had left the facility without an operator.”

“I am really excited to be working with Adam and Seth,” George Wade said. “The three of us have worked together successfully with WARPA (Western Auto Racing Promoters Association) and I feel with our ideas and background, we can make Shasta Speedway a successful and entertaining short track in Northern California.”

“Our major goal is to get the track open at the end of March and work on getting a consistent car count for the local divisions,” Nelson continued to say. “We need racecars on the track to put on a show.” To help expedite an influx in drivers the group feels they have to take some risks to make competing on a Saturday night more affordable. A big cut in pit pass pricing was the first change planned. Front gate pricing at Shasta Speedway was already at an industry low, so step two was to change the age of the admission for kids to FREE for those 12 and under. The goal of restoring a great short track racing atmosphere can only be reached if everyone gets re-excited about Shasta Speedway and digging deep into your pockets is never exciting.

Nelson did say that they are looking at a lean schedule for 2012. Instead of 20-24 events as has been the norm in the past; they will present an 11-13 race schedule, another economical adjustment that should allow the competitors to enter every event at Shasta. “We are going to use a simple short track format and focus on quality not quantity.” Nelson said.

The ASA Modified division at Shasta Speedway will be competing for the prestigious ASA Member Track National Championship in 2012.

Nelson, who also promotes Meridian Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Meridian, ID, is pleased to bring the ASA Member Track program to Shasta Speedway. “ ASA brings the added security of a national sanctioning body to Shasta Speedway. As a partner, ASA will be a big help in making sure that the state of Saturday night short track racing in Anderson is trending up once again.”

“Our group is looking forward to this challenge,” Nelson said. “Personally, I am optimistic that we can have some favorable results by the end of this year. The ‘keep it simple’ approach always seems to work in the long run.”

With the management group putting the hard work on their shoulders, they have asked the competitors for their help by bringing a positive attitude to the pits and providing good sportsmanship on the track. Together, everyone can help build the attendance back to where it has been in the past.

All three are busy meeting with competitors to solidify the rules, finalizing a schedule, and sponsorship proposals.

“We are excited to welcome everyone at Shasta Speedway to the ASA Racing family,” Dennis Huth, ASA President said. “Adam, George and Seth are long time friends to ASA Racing and we are eager to work with them in making Shasta Speedway a successful short track in Northern California. We wish everyone there a successful 2012 season.”

ASA Stars to Watch in 2012: Shelby Orozco

February 29th, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – Shelby Orozco hopes to leave her footprint in short track racing. She may make an impact behind the wheel or could someday take over the family business. No matter what she is doing, she is catching the eye of young female racers at Havasu 95 Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Lake Havasu City, AZ.

The young driver started racing bandoleros when she was 13-years-old. “I was a handful!” Orozco recalled. “I really thank my family for sticking around during those first few seasons … It wasn’t easy! When I was 16 my grandpa surprised me with a Late Model, and I was absolutely terrified of it! It took me a full season to get comfortable behind the wheel and to find my groove. I am now 18 years old and in my third season in my Late Model and I love it. I am the only female in the Gene Price Late Model Series that runs between Havasu 95 Speedway and I-10 Speedway and that is something I am very proud of today.”

Her grandfather is Bill Rohzon, Promoter of Havasu 95 Speedway. Which runs their season from September to May in order to avoid their very hot summers. So far in their season, she has a fifth and ninth place finish at her family’s track.

Her growth as a driver has impressed her grandfather. “When we put her in a bandolero, she figured it out overnight,” Rohzon said. “When we put her in a late model, it scared her the first year. But I tell you what, she got comfortable the second year and I am very proud of what she has done, especially so far this season.”

One thing she is proud of is how she has become a role model for other female drivers who compete at Havasu. “When I started racing I was the only girl at my home track, and now there are tons of us!” Orozco exclaimed. “Young girls are always telling me I inspired them to become racers, and I’m glad I was able to instill my love of racing into the hearts of other girls.”

Many would think that racing at a track that your family operates would be easy, but Orozco is treated like the other competitors. “It’s definitely not easy! I’m sure everyone thinks it’s a complete walk in the park but it’s not. My grandpa Bill has made sure my brother and I don’t take advantage or abuse what we have. I don’t have unlimited track time, I don’t get special treatment. If I screw up on the track, I’m getting black-flagged or I’m getting disqualified,” Orozco said. “If I screw up at home I’m getting the car taken away. Sure, we still have to buy my tires and buy my gas and I have those races where I only take a tire or two instead of a complete set, or patch up a hole with duct tape instead of buying new body pieces. Having the track has made me so grateful. I get to be a part of something huge!  All of the track employees have become like family, I love being out there. I am so thankful for everything my grandpa and grandma have given me. I truly am blessed.”

With that discipline, she has learned a lot behind the wheel as well. “Patience and respect are the two big ones. As a racer you need to learn when to save your stuff and when to go for it, and that is really one of the hardest things to learn. It’s not always easy being patient, sometimes you just want to ram the guy in front of you to get him out of your way!” Orozco explained. “But that also leads to respect. You can’t hop in a car and expect everyone to respect you and your car and to give you lots of room. My first season in a Late Model, I was so slow that I made sure to stay out of everyone’s way and to give the leaders lots of room. When I came back the second season ready to show them what I could do. The other drivers respected me and knew I would race them clean. It’s a long learning process but it’s something every driver has to go through.”

When she is not behind the wheel, she keeps herself busy. “Outside of the track I am a graphic designer. I started doing web and graphic design in high school and I fell in love with it. Now I’m in charge of all of the design work for Havasu 95 Speedway. My design partner Austin Gabler and I handle our website, we designed it entirely by hand. We created our new logo, and I design all of our famous programs by myself,” Orozco said. “I love being able to combine my love of graphic work with my love of racing. My dream is to one day own my own design shop, Racer’s Edge Design, where I design and print programs, shirts, stickers, websites, everything for racetracks all over the country. I want to one day be a racetrack’s ‘one stop shop!’”

As far as her future goals, it may surprise you. “I’m sure you expect me to say that I want to become a professional race car driver, but that’s not true. Since my family operates Havasu 95 Speedway, not only have I learned how to drive a car I’ve also learned what it takes to open the gates to let that car out on our track,” Orozco explained. “I would love to one day become more prominent in Havasu 95 Speedway, maybe even taking over as promoter many, many years down the road. I have grown to love the business side of racing as much as actually being behind the wheel.”

ASA Stars to Watch in 2012: Kori Combs

February 18th, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – Rocky Mountain Raceways, an ASA Member Track in West Valley City, UT, is entering their 16^th season of racing in 2012. In the first 15 years, they have been building champions including the 2010 ASA Member Track National Champion Bryan Wordelman.

They may have another star on the rise at the 0.375-mile asphalt oval, and she is already a two-time track champion.

Kori Combs is only 19-years-old and won the Mini Cups division at RMR’s super oval in 2010 and 2011. Last year, she won seven feature events en route to her championship. After conquering the Mini Cup division she hopes to do the same as she moves up to compete in the Maverik Modified division this season.

“We are still looking for some sponsors to compete the entire season, but we are also looking ahead,” Combs said. “You will see me out there though, I can promise you that.”

Believe it or not, she really didn’t care about racing until her family moved from Illinois to Utah. “My family owned a go-kart track when we lived in Illinois, and to be honest I didn’t enjoy racing very much,” Combs recalled. “So when we moved away from it in 2005 I didn’t miss it at first. One day I just said to my dad, ‘I want to race, but I don’t want to be in a go-kart. I want a roll cage over me.’ And he did a little research and we found the Mini Cup class. Racing is sort of in our blood; it’s the Combs Family genes. My grandpa still races when he gets the chance.”

From that point on, she has become one of the toughest competitors in the Mini Cup divisions at RMR, especially the last two years where she captured the track championship.

In 2011 alone, she won 83% of the events she competed in with her worst finish being a fourth in a heat race. Her worst finish in a feature event was second, and that only happened twice.

Today, she is attending Utah State University and has a goal of becoming a teacher, with a minor as a racecar driver. “I am finishing my Generals up right now, and then I will go to school to be a teacher. What kind of teacher? I have no idea; I am being pulled right now toward Elementary Special Ed or just plain Elementary. But that could be because I am currently working in Special Ed at an Elementary School. So we will see where I get led to, I guess,” Combs explained. “One future goal is to make it big time in racing, of course! But I know that is not very likely to happen, so I hope to finish school and get a career somewhere in education. I will continue to race, too. That’s something I’m afraid I won’t be able to shake.”

Being a driver has also taught her a life lesson as well, “I have learned to not let the negative things others say influence who I am. There’s always going to be someone who wants you to fail, you can’t let them get to you,” Combs said. “It has also taught me patience and great determination. My first year of racing, my dad would tell me all the time to not make up too much of a game plan when I’m off the track. But, just feel the situation out because as soon as you’re out there your strategy will go right out the window. That’s a great way to look at what’s going on in life; you just have to take it as you go.”

She enjoys competing at RMR and under the ASA Member Track banner. “I haven’t competed anywhere else, so RMR is home for me,” Combs said. “The crew out there has been great to me and as far as I know, it’s a great track to race at each week. And it’s true, ASA does build champions!”

“Kori is a fantastic young racer and a wonderful ambassador for our sport. She is coming off two season championships in 2010 and 2011 and has decided to move up into our Modified division for 2012,” Mike Eames, RMR General Manager said. “Kori’s dad, Mike, will make sure that she keeps her nose clean and out of trouble on the track. Kori has an infectious smile and is a joy to be around. I look forward to see how she handles this new challenge in her racing career.”

ASA Free State 500…Two Years Later

February 1st, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – The memories are still fresh of an event that happened two years ago today. It was on January 31, 2010 when ASA Racing did something that no other American racing sanctioning body has ever done. They organized and sanctioned an asphalt event at a one and a half mile oval in the Republic of South Africa.

The green flag flew around 1:15pm local time on a sunny, 80-degree day at the Phakisa Freeway Circuit located just outside of Welkom, Free State, South Africa. It was broadcasted live on Sirius-XM satellite radio.

24 cars took the green flag in front a large contingency of South African race fans at the oval that sat in the middle of four goldmines.

1986 Daytona 500 Champion Geoff Bodine had a comfortable lead with three laps to go, when he ran out of fuel going down the backstretch. As Bodine pitted, the lead was handed over to Toni McCray, a talented female driver from Southern California. Not far behind McCray was John Mickel, a winning stock car driver from the United Kingdom.

As McCray took the white flag, Mickel was looking for a way to get by her.The two went side-by-side going down the backstretch. Mickel would takeover the top spot as the two battled in turns three and four. As Tom White waved the checkered flag, it was Mickel taking the win over McCray. Marc Davis was third with Rick McCray in fourth and South Africa’s very own Johan Spies rounding out the top-five.

“I can’t believe it’s been two years since such a memorable victory,” Mickel recently said. “It would be great to go back and race again! All the drivers, teams and mechanics loved the whole South African experience so much. We would like to go back and compete at Phakisa again.” It was truly an experience for just about everyone who was involved in this historic event. For many, it was their first trip outside of the United States. Over 300 people from around the world made the trip to the track located about two hours of Johannesburg and about 12 hours north of Cape Town. 16 drivers were from the United States along with six South Africans, one from the United Kingdom and one from Australia.

Rodney Schuette was the car owner of Steve Carlson’s #F-66 car that competed in the event. He wasn’t sure what to expect going over but hopes to go again. “When we were told that we were racing in South Africa, my first thought was, where do they have a track?” Schuette recalled. “The only thing I knew about that part of the planet was what I picked up from the Discovery channel or National Geographic. After being there, I have a whole new respect for the people and that area. They are very friendly, personable, and respectful. The racing facility is top notch. I could talk a long time about being there. It was quite an experience. ASA and Dennis Huth should be commended for thinking out of the box.”

The teams had a short period of time to prepare for the event. They put their time and dedication into preparing the cars and equipment for the 60-day boat journey to South Africa. In fact, the winning car didn’t arrive until the Thursday morning prior to the event.

Mike “Lumpy” Lemke was the Tech Director who put the rules together to make the race as equal as possible. “We had some unique situations with the different engine packages and cars coming to compete in the event,” Lemke said. “The teams understood our goal with this event and we all worked as one giant team to make this work. It was a privilege to be a part of this.”

The event was also the debut of the Schwanke ASA Transcontinental Series engine. A full electronic fuel injected engine. Johan Spies was the top finishing driver with the engine with his fifth place finish.

The event was replayed in 72 different countries reaching 110 million households.

“As we look back, this was a huge undertaking for ASA Racing and we were ecstatic with the results,” Dennis Huth, ASA President said. “In one week, 24 race teams from around the world came together for the ASA Free State 500. It was an incredible race with an exciting finish. The top-five alone showed how diverse this event was with three different countries from three different continents represented. Many of us still cannot believe that it has already been two years.”

The day after the race, everyone visited Savannah near Parys, Free State, South Africa where they enjoyed a safari, an up close encounter with a cheetah, and enjoyed the South African culture with music and dance. It was a great way to end their South African experience.

ASA has several YouTube videos from the 2010 ASA Free State 500 available on their YouTube page at www.youtube.com/Americanspeedassoc.

ASA Stars to Watch in 2012: Zack Franks

January 27th, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – A famous character in a racing movie says, “All I want to do is race!” When you ask Zack Franks what he wants to do, you get the same answer.  The 17-year-old from Asheville, NC, surprised many last year at Newport Motor Speedway, an ASA Member Track in Newport, TN, when he held off veteran drivers Wayne Webb and David Flynn for the title. Franks won the championship by a total of five points over his two fellow competitors. By the way, he missed the first two events of the season.

He competed in 14 events during the 2011 season where he won seven of those events along with 13 top-five and 14 top-ten finishes. Franks impressive record also put him in the running for the ASA Joe Gibbs Driven Racing Oil Member Track National Championship where he finished second to 2011 National Champion Barry Beggarly. Franks had an average of 4.7075, only 0.2341 behind Beggarly.

What makes this more impressive is that this was his first full season of racing…ever. “I wanted to race ever since I was five years old. When I was 11, I started racing go-carts,” Franks recalled. When asked if he raced up until he switched over to full bodied racecars, Franks gave a blunt answer. “No, I quit the go-carts because dad didn’t know much about them. But I ran really well. I finished second and third in my first two races.”

When asked if he only ran those two go-cart races, he simply said yes. In 2010, he ran a few street stock events before moving up to the tough Late Model Sportsman division. “Everything went by real fast,” Franks said. “My dad (Junior Franks) said it would.” Franks has a simple goal, “I want to do this full-time, I simply can’t get enough of it,” he said. “I also could not have done this without my dad. He has a lot of experience doing this and continues to teach everything that he knows.”

Zack’s father, Junior Franks, has competed in some NASCAR Nationwide Series and the former Sportsman Series with competitors like the late Dale Earnhardt. Franks also enjoyed competing at Newport Motor Speedway. “Oh yeah, that track is a lot of fun,” he said. “It is the best. The racing gets so intense there, it is unreal.”

“Let me tell you something about this kid. Last year his dad put him in a street stock car. This was his first time ever being in a race car,” Ron Crane, General Manager of Newport Motor Speedway said. “About midway through last season, his dad decides to put him in a Late Model and in his first race he sat on the pole. We call him the ‘Wild Child’ and he has showed everyone what he is all about. He is a good kid, a little shy. But when he gets out on the track, nothing intimidates him but he is very appreciative of his peers. We are all very proud of him.”

Currently, he and his father are exploring their options for 2012. Those options include returning to Newport to run for the ASA National Championship or competing in super late model events. By the way, if he does plan to return to Newport and defend his 2010 track championship, he will have at least one tough competitor trying to beat him. That driver is his girlfriend Taylor Nesbitt, who finished eighth in the standings last season.
