Hughes chalks up 150th USMTS win at I-94 Speedway

May 21st, 2017

FERGUS FALLS, Minn. — Jason Hughes was behind the eight-ball all night Friday at the I-94 Speedway, but after the checkered flag waved the three-time USMTS national champion was in front of the cameras and standing in victory lane for the 150th time after a United States Modified Touring Series feature race.

Meanwhile, a crop of rookie drivers took their shots at the front. Brent Dutenhoffer garnered the Sybesma Graphics Pole Award but it was Jacob Bleess taking control at the drop of the green flag-both drivers in search of their first-ever USMTS win.

Hughes, meanwhile, drew the eighth starting spot for his heat. After squeaking into the main event redraw with a third-place finish, the 42-year-old from Watts, Okla., drew the eighth position for the 40-lap feature.

Bleess paced the first 24 circuits but a pair of cautions on laps 23 and 25 kept the field close behind the leader with Hughes snagging the point as they completed the 25th lap.

From there, Hughes led the rest of the way while surviving two late-race yellow flags and a fierce final charge by Zack VanderBeek who settled for the runner-up paycheck while Hughes reaped the $3,000 winner’s share of the prize money in the RHRSwag.com Northern Region opener.

Johnny Scott was third at the finish line while Cade Dillard, who traveled all the way from Robeline, La., to Fergus Falls, Minn., drove from 14th to fourth in the main event. Stormy Scott finished fifth and Dan Ebert was sixth.

Four Grant Junghans Rookie of the Year contenders rounded out the top 10, including KSE Racing Products Hard Charger Award winner Kelly Estey who finished seventh after starting 18th. The rest of the top 10 were R.C. Whitwell, Kyle Prauner and Travis Saurer.

The Casey’s USMTS National Tour powered by S&S Fishing & Rental makes its maiden voyage to the Devils Lake Speedway on Saturday, May 20, for the inaugural USMTS event presented by Envision & Schill Construction.

Midwest Mods, Pure Stocks, Hornets and Circle Track Mini-Trucks will round out the five-division program. The pit gate opens at 4 p.m. and grandstands opening at 5 and racing action getting started at 7.

Lynn & Weisser Take Top Wins At Lincoln Speedway World Of Outlaws & Summernationals Up Next

June 26th, 2016

Intrepid Fallen Heroes Night, presented by Charron’s Auto Repair, had a little bit of everything for the fans this past Friday, June 24 at Lincoln IL Speedway. A color guard, bagpipes, and rendition of the national anthem led into the six division show. American flags handed to those in attendance and t-shirts flying into the stands during the night also helped honor the fallen heroes of our military. The event was the final one before the huge World Of Outlaw vs. Summernational show coming up on Sunday, July 3.

The headline show of the night was the Midwest Big Ten Series Pro Late Models. A solid field of drivers were in attendance with this being the first of two nights this weekend for the series. After the frisbee redraw, Brian Lynn and Jake Little started on the front row for the 20-lap event. When the green dropped, it was Lynn racing to the front, while Little searched for the right lane to make his car work. Eventually, Matt Taylor moved into second and started to challenge the leader. After a handful of yellows during the event, Lynn was able to fend off all advances and take the checkered flag for his first Pro Late Model win of the season. Following the Macon City, IL driver were Taylor, Little, Huffman, and Brandon Eskew.

Allen Weisser set fast time in qualifying, won his heat, and got a nice redraw for the UMP Modified feature to put him on the front row. The Peoria, IL driver raced to the front as Brian Lynn moved his Modified into the second spot. As lap-after-lap went up on the newly installed lap boards, Weisser remained error free and kept a comfortable edge on Lynn. At the end of the 20-lap event, it was Weisser taking his first Lincoln victory of the season, followed by Lynn, Curt Rhodes, Cody Spirling, and Travis Hendrickson.

For the first time this season, the B-Mods were in action at Lincoln and much like the A-Mod division, it was a Weisser who ended up in victory lane. This time it was Butch Weisser, Allen’s dad, in his #61 ride. Leading from start to finish, the Peoria, IL driver was followed by Tom Riech, Travis Hendrickson, Hunter Diebel, and Tim Riech.

Another competitive field of POWRi/Illini D-II Midgets presented by Nutech Seed were pitside for the evening’s events. After claiming their heat race wins, Patrick Bruns and Adam Taylor were slated alongside one another for the 15-lap feature. Immediately on the wave of the green, Champaign, IL driver Bruns raced out front. Drivers ran the high side and lowside of the race track, looking for the fastest line to suit their needs. While Bruns dominated out front, Mitchell Davis was putting on the show coming from seventh to second by the end. As the checkered fell, it was Bruns taking his track leading, third feature win of the year. Davis, Vantoll, Taylor, and Hunter Lane completed the top five. After the race, drivers and teams were very pleased in the strides that were made on the track to help the racing and tire conservation.

Lovington, IL driver Jeremy Nichols dominated the Sportsman class, during the division’s second appearance at the track this season. Nichols came from fourth in the heat to win it, while Timmy Dick finished second in that event. It slated the two Sportsman hotshoes side-by-side on the front row for the start of the event, with Nichols racing into the lead and pulling away. At the checkered, Nichols was followed by Dick, who won the feature earlier in the year. Tim Bedinger had a solid run to finish third, while Scott Williams and Gregg Paul were top five finishers.

The final feature of the night was the UMP Hornet 15-lapper. Mike Eskew and Danny Oates started up front for the main event with Eskew jumping out front and into the lead. Behind him, fellow heat race winner, Matthew Mackey was running hot on his heels. As lap-after-lap clicked off, Mackey was looking high and low as the duo raced away from the other competitors. At the checkered, Eskew picked up the win, his second of the year. The Springfield, IL driver was followed by Mackey, Oates, Cook Crawford, and Gary Williams.

That brings us to the biggest event in the 13 year history of Lincoln Speedway on Sunday, July 3. For the first time ever, the World of Outlaw Craftsman Late Models will be competing against the Summernational Hell Tour Late Models. An outstanding field of cars is expected with drivers from both series running for important points and the $8,000 top prize in the A-Main presented by Graue Chevrolet. The Summit National Modifieds and B-Mods will also be in action.

Pit gates will open at 2:00, grandstands at 3:00, hotlaps begin at 5:30, Late Model qualifying starts at 6:00, and racing will take the green at 6:30. Grandstand tickets will be sold at the gate that day for $30, while kids 11 and under are just $5.

Sanders scores in Sauk Rapids, fifth different winner in five nights

August 20th, 2013

SAUK RAPIDS, Minn.–Five straight nights at five different racetracks produced five different winners as Rodney Sanders scored his first win during the Hunt for USMTS Casey’s Cup Sunday night at the Granite City Speedway.

The Rocket started on the pole but it was his teammate, Jason Krohn who jumped out to lead the first lap. The 2007 USMTS National Champion led the first five laps using the high side of the clay oval, but Sanders inched ahead on lap 6 as the low line began to show signs of taking rubber.

Seeing Sanders advantage growing, Krohn moved down behind Sanders just in time to settle into second place ahead of Ryan Gustin, who started sixth.

The races first and only caution came at the halfway point of the 40-lapper just as Sanders had caught the rear of the pack, and the restart gave him a clear track ahead to sail away over the final 20 laps to score the win and a $5,000 paycheck.

It looked like Krohn and Gustin would follow in order to the finish line, but a flat right rear tire with one lap to go dropped Krohn to the rear of the running order while Gustin coasted to a runner-up finish his best in the first nine races in The Hunt.

Johnny Scott wound up third, Chris Brown was fourth and Daniel Hilsabeck recorded his best finish of the season with a fifth-place effort.

Jeremy Payne, Dave Cain, Stormy Scott, Jason Hughes and Dave Mass rounded out the top 10 finishers.

It was Sanders 18 career United States Modified Touring Series triumph and propelled him from fourth to second in the championship points standings. Johnny Scott remains on top with 875 points, Sanders has 857, Hughes is third with 839 and Stormy Scott is ranked fourth with 836 markers. The rest of the top 10 with eight events remaining are Payne (758), Zack VanderBeek (713), Brown (677), Dereck Ramirez (645), Kelly Shryock (641) and Lucas Schott (628).

After three days off, the Hunt for the USMTS Cases Cup rolls on with three events in three states on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Aug. 22-24. Action kicks off on Thursday at the Valley Speedway in Grain Valley, Mo., and then moves to the Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., on Friday. The swing wraps up at the Salina High Banks Speedway in Pryor Creek, Okla., on Saturday.
