Tony Jackson Jr. Closes 2014 with Turkey Bowl Triumph

December 4th, 2014

Lebanon, Missouri – Tony Jackson Jr. brought his 2014 season to a close on Saturday night with a $2,000 triumph in the annual Turkey Bowl at Springfield Raceway (Springfield, Missouri) in his TJR Motorsports #56 RLB Financial/Club 29/Cornett Super Late Model.

Twenty-five Super Late Models were on hand for the event, and a heat race win positioned Tony starting outside-front-row for the finale. In the main event, Jackson Jr. took control from race leader, Will Vaught in lap traffic just past the halfway mark, and held off Dustin Mooneyham for his first-ever victory at the 1/4 mile oval. Following Jackson Jr. and Mooneyham to the checkered flag were Jeff Roth, Shannon Scott, and Vaught.

“The track started taking some rubber, and then Vaught got hung up and lapped traffic, which allowed me to get the lead,” said Jackson Jr. “We were able to capitalize, and it’s great to end the season with a win.”

Full results from the event are available at www.SpringfieldRaceway.com

Tony ends the season with 7 wins, 23 top five finishes, and 36 top ten finishes.

Modifieds under USRA banner at Springfield Raceway for fourth straight season in 2012

December 29th, 2011

SPRINGFIELD, Mo.- Officials have announced that the Springfield Raceway will be sanctioned for the fourth straight season in 2012 by the United States Racing Association for the Modified class after another very strong 2011 season.

“The A-Mods are our main event class for the weekly shows at Springfield, and have been for several seasons,” said track co-owner Jerry Hoffman. “USRA has really provided a good strong point fund along with other items in their program.”

Last season, Jackie Dalton of Carthage captured the 2011 Springfield Raceway track championship to mark his second title under the USRA banner in the last three seasons, and his fifth overall track championship.

For his efforts, Dalton took home a $1,500 points fund check from the track along with his 13th-place finish in the USRA Weekly Racing Series national standings grabbing him another $500 along with an American Racer championship jacket.

Track points runner-up Erik Maggard took home $900 just from running Springfield on a regular schedule as the top 10 in the USRA RHS Modifieds received points fund money.

The USRA system helps rewards tracks and drivers who run an inverted weekly system by awarding bonus points for your starting position to your finishing position along with car counts in the national standings based on your best 20 feature finishes. Pea Ridge, Ark., veteran Johnny Bone Jr. captured the national title worth over $10,000 in 2011. Bone made one appearance at Springfield and captured the Bordertown Casino Octoberfast event which was sanctioned by USRA.

This season, USRA national points are awarded for events from March 2 until Oct. 21, 2012.

“With the USRA you can run your regular points shows and also sanction your season-ending or beginning events and try to help drivers get into the top 20 in the national standings,” added Hoffman. “Last season we had two of our area drivers receive national money as Jackie (Dalton) finished 13th and 2010 track champion Mitch Keeter grabbed the 18th place spot. We finished our regular track points chase the first week of September, but had a couple of late-season specials which helped
everyone out in trying to get into those final paying spots.”

Hoffman also noted that he is a strong proponent of the 8,000 RPM chip rule for the USRA RHS Modifieds.

“At Springfield we enforce it (the chip rule) very strong and it has made a big difference as everyone attempts to get a handle on the rising costs of A-Mods.” The Southwest Missouri area had several drivers in the national standings during 2011 and several more that were just outside the top 20.

Springfield Raceway is tentatively set to begin their 2012 season with the rained-out Turkey Classic on Saturday, March 10, featuring Late Models, USRA RHS Modifieds, B-Mods and Legends Cars. The regular season is slated to begin Saturday, April 21.

Larry Phillips Memorial this Saturday, September 18th at Springfield Raceway!

September 17th, 2010

Buckner, MO -The Larry Phillips Memorial takes center stage this Saturday, September 18th at Springfield Raceway as the Lucas Oil MLRA battles the MARS Dirt Car Series Late Models in head to head action at the venerable Springfield, Missouri oval. First Ballot Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer, Larry Phillips is considered by most to be the greatest racer of all time in the Springfield, Missouri area and lays claim to four MLRA Wins in his illustrious career.

With just eight points separating the top 3 drivers in the Lucas Oil MLRA Points Standings, the Springfield race could have serious championship ramifications as the action happens fast and furious at the 1/4 mile Southwest Missouri oval. Oxford, Iowa’s Dave Eckrich sits on top of the standings as the driver of the #58 Barry Wright Race Car holds a tiny four point lead over 6-time and defending MLRA Champion Al Purkey out of Coffeyville, Kansas. Purkey pilots a Hatfield powered Larry Shaw Race Car. Republic, Missouri fan favorite Brad Looney holds down the third spot in his GRT as he sits just four points behind Purkey. Omaha Nebraska’s Joe Kosiski occupies the fourth spot in his red Ford GT 500 schemed machine. Springfield, Missouri’s Terry Phillips, son of Larry the Legend rounds out the Top-5 after recently joining Scott Bloomquist as only the second Dirt Late Model Driver in history to score 100 series wins with the same series and will easily be the fan favorite to capture the win and the unique trophy that bears his father’s name this Saturday. 2008 Lucas Oil MLRA Champion John Anderson is sixth in the MLRA points standings
in his Greg Junghan owned MasterSbilt with Roush/Yates horsepower under the hood. Henderson, Colorado’s Human Highlight Reel, Kelly Boen resides in the seventh position in points after scoring 3 wins in a row recently at McCool Junction, Nebraska and
Sedalia, Missouri. Phillip’s “Team Custard” Teammate Jeremy Payne is eighth in his Hatfield powered GRT followed by 2010 Rookie of the Year contender Evan Hubert driving the Lucas Cattle Company/Rockstar Energy Drink sponsored MasterSbilt.
