Ben Seitz Wins the Hy-Miler Fast 40 at Sandusky Speedway

July 28th, 2014

Seitz Wins Tune-up for the 37th Hy-Miler Nationals 100 on Saturday–

(Sandusky, OH) – Night one of the 37th Annual Hy-Miler Nationals at Sandusky Speedway in Sandusky, Ohio ended in the early hours of Saturday morning. But a strong group of ISMA Supermodified fans stayed up to watch Ben Seitz win the Fast 40-lap feature.

Seitz would get by early leader Jeff Locke on lap 16 and would not be contested in the preliminary to Saturday night’s 100-lap main event.

“The car was awesome,” Seitz said in victory lane. “We had a good starting spot but the car was real good. Jeff got in the turns real hot and washed up. I think he was getting loose. But, I got under him and the rest was history.”

With a restart with three laps to go, DJ Shullick was looking to chase down Seitz and challenge for the win but came up short.

“I thought I might have a shot at it, but I was a little tight,” Shullick said. “I would have to have a perfect lap to get around him but I with a couple of laps to go, it didn’t give me enough time to set him up.”

Mike Lichty started ninth and came home with a third place finish.

“It was a good run. Obviously it was a quick race, being only 40 laps and everyone knew that,” Lichty said. “We wanted to get to the front as quickly as we could but not burn up our stuff either. It’s a tough race but to come from ninth to third, we were still missing something. We don’t have the drive off and the side bite that we need. It’s another top three, so we will take it.”

All three are looking towards the big 100-lap event on Saturday night.

“We should have a pretty good car. We need to make some adjustments for tomorrow for the longer race,” Seitz said. “But everything was good tonight.”

Lou Cicconi Jr. was fourth with current ISMA Supermodified point leader Rob Summers rounding out the top five.

The final day of the 37th Annual Hy-Miler Supermodified Nationals conclude on Saturday with the ISMA Supermodifieds and the Top Speed Modifieds in action. Qualifying is at 4pm with racing at 7pm.

Main Event XXV At Sandusky Speedway To Close Out 2012 Racing Season For Justin Schroeder

September 20th, 2012

Canton, Michigan –When the 2012 racing season began, Justin Schroeder and his J.M.S. Racing Team set out to run a limited number of events during the year with a primary focus on the 2012 Schedule in the Main Event Racing Series. It was planned during the year to skip a handful of events and the team has stuck to that plan all season long with no distractions.

Over the limited number of MERS events that the 25-year-old has participated in, the Canton, Michigan driver has proven that he is a solid contender each and every time. Despite not running for the MERS Championship and only running a part-time schedule within the Sandusky, Ohio based series, Schroeder sits seventh in the season long points chase
heading into the MERS Season Finale.

The prestigious Main Event XXV will be held on Friday-Sunday, September 21-23rd at the fast ½ (0.500) mile semi-banked paved oval of Sandusky Speedway in Sandusky, Ohio as the 100-Lap main will pay an impressive $6,000 to the winner and $1,000 just to start. For Schroeder, this is the race he’s been waiting for all season long.

“We’re really looking forward to Sandusky. We have gone over the car with a fine tooth comb and we are ready.” Schroeder stated. “I feel like our car has been quick everywhere we’ve gone in the race, but we just haven’t had the speed in qualifying to really capitalize on it. So with seven hours of practice on Friday, we are going to try and find some speed to help our chances.” He added.

This event for MERS has called Columbus Motor Speedway in Columbus, Ohio home for 21 of the last 22 years, with only the 2003 edition held at the now closed Mansfield Motorsports Park in Mansfield, Ohio. This year’s race will be a homecoming of sorts, as the event started at Sandusky during the 1988 season. Dennis Berry won Main Event I while Canadian Legend Junior Hanley won Main Event II in 1989. It was in 1990 that MERS moved the event to Columbus.

In Schroeder’s first race at Sandusky, he went the distance in leading all 75 laps for the Win back on May 19th which was his first since the 2009 season when he collected an Outlaw Super Late Models victory at his home track of Flat Rock Speedway in Flat Rock, Michigan. In MERS second race in Sandusky, Ohio back on July 21st, he picked up a seventh place showing.

Despite running a somewhat limited schedule with a primary focus on the Main Event Racing Series and in seven starts out of the 10 races conducted within MERS, Schroeder has recorded one event win, which came at Sandusky in the MERS Season Opener back on May 19th. He also has racked up four top five finishes and all seven MERS starts have been at least a top eight finish. Despite missing three MERS shows, Schroeder is still solidly in seventh place in the season long points chase.

For the final race of the 2012 racing season, Schroeder’s #4 Outlaw Bodied Super Late Model will carry sponsorship decals from Health Plus Health Plans as well as Top Notch Garage, G. Michael Kabot, Glass Unlimited, Victory Racing Parts, FLF Racecars, and M.P.H. Promotions. To learn more about Justin Schroeder and the entire J.M.S. Racing Team and to inquire

Justin Schroeder Takes Home First Career Main Event Racing Series Win At Sandusky Speedway

May 25th, 2012

Canton, Michigan — Going into the 2012 Main Event Racing Series Season Opener for Outlaw Super Late Models at the ½
(0.500) mile semi-banked paved oval of Sandusky Speedway in Sandusky, Ohio for the tracks’ 2012 Super Nationals, Justin Schroeder knew there would be a strong field of cars there and the Canton, Michigan driver knew he’d have his work cut out for him.

After Qualifying seventh out of the 27-car field, luck was on the 25-year-olds’ side as the inversion draw would be an eight placing Schroeder on the outside of the front row for the 75-lap Feature. “We weren’t that good in practice for some reason. I mostly think it was the lack of track time I had there. That was my third time in three years there so it took some getting used to. Never got a clean lap in practice to know what we had.” He explained.

“Right before Qualifying I talked to the guys and told them that I think I’m not driving the track right and I’m going to try something different,” He continued. “Well it seemed to work as we gained over a half second from practice and the car was much better.”

At the drop of the green flag, Schroeder drag raced pole-sitter Shawn Stroble to the first corner and would come out of turn two as the early race leader. “We started on the outside pole knowing that if we got out front we had a good shot to win. Tim Curry gave me a few pointers and when the green flag flew we took the lead and never looked back. The car was great in the feature as we honestly just rode most of the race making sure we didn’t burn the car up.” The happy winner stated.

This was Schroeder’s first win since the 2009 season when he collected an Outlaw Super Late Models victory at his home track of Flat Rock Speedway in Flat Rock, Michigan. “What a huge way to start off the year as the last couple years we haven’t had the best luck. I have got to thank my crew; Mom and Dad, Brittany, Mark Butzin, and Nick Grzesik, plus to Kevin McGuinn for taking all the pics and videos. Finally to all of my great sponsors, this is just great to come right out of the box with a win like this.” He ended.

Despite leading the early season points chase within the Main Event Racing Series (MERS), the J.M.S. Team is skipping the second race for the series at Auto City Speedway on May 26th and will instead attend the third race of the MERS season on Saturday, June 2nd at the 1/3 (0.333) mile semi-banked circular-shaped paved oval of Columbus Motor Speedway in Columbus, Ohio.

Schroeder’s plans for the remainder of the 2012 racing season includes the majority of his races with MERS as well as several races throughout the Midwestern United States primarily in his home state of Michigan as well as Indiana and Ohio.

For the rest of the 2012 racing season, Schroeder’s #4 Outlaw Bodied Super Late Model will carry sponsorship decals from; Top Notch Garage as well as G. Michael Kabot, Glass Unlimited, Victory Racing Parts, FLF Racecars, and M.P.H. Promotions.
