Louisiana Fast: Dillard dominates at Adams County Speedway

August 22nd, 2016

CORNING, Iowa- His hometown of Robeline, La., may be half a world away, but Cade Dillard has certainly taken a liking to the State of Iowa. With a dominating performance Thursday night at the Adams County Speedway in Corning, Iowa, the 25-year-old notched his second straight win in the Hunt for the USMTS Caseys Cup powered by S&S Fishing & Rental and seventh of his career three of which have happened in the Hawkeye State.

Dillard started the 32-lap main event on the outside of polesitter Jason Hughes and immediately took control of the race. Rodney Sanders slipped into second two laps later but could not keep up with the streaking Dillard. In fact, by lap 12, Dillard was ducking into turn three as Hughes was exiting turn two in third.

The track prep crew gave drivers a smooth, multi-lane track, but lapped traffic was hairy for Dillard as Sanders closed the gap in the late stages of the contest. The first and only caution flag waved with five laps to go, but it was no help to his pursuers as Dillard sailed away to secure the $3,000 top prize.

Behind him, however, the action was hot and heavy the final five times around the big half-mile. Zack VanderBeek, who tussled with Hughes for most of the race, snuck past both Hughes and Sanders one lap after the restart but was unable to track down Dillard and settled for the runner-up finish.

Jesse Sobbing also slipped by Sanders for third, and Hughes held off Johnny Scott for fifth. Jesse Dennis, 23rd-starting Stormy Scott, Masen Big Eagle and Dereck Ramirez rounded out the top 10.

More than 100 drivers are entered for the biggest and richest one-day event in the history of dirt modified racing on Friday when fans and the top drivers in the sport converge on the Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City for the inaugural Grant Junghans Memorial presented by BriggsAuto.com. More than $100,000 will be paid out to drivers on this night, including $10,002 to the winner of the United States Modified Touring Series main event.

As part of the Hunt for the USMTS Caseys Cup powered by S&S Fishing & Rental, the Best of the Best in dirt modified racing will be on hand for this epic show, as well as many surprise entries from regional open-wheel favorites to dirt late model superstars such as former World of Outlaws Late Model Series champion Shane Clanton and Grant Junghans brother, Chase Junghans.

The racing world lost one of its finest ambassadors this past March, and the Grant Junghans Memorial race will be an opportunity for his fans, family, friends and fellow competitors to remember the good times and racing memories shared in his 27 years with us. Heres the official payout for the inaugural Grant Junghans Memorial main event: 1. $10,002, 2. $8002, 3. $5502, 4. $4502, 5. $4002, 6. $3502, 7. $3002, 8. $2502, 9. $2202, 10. $2002, 11. $1802, 12. $1902, 13. $1602, 14. $1502, 15. $1402, 16. $1302, 17. $1202, 18. $1172, 19. $1162, 20. $1152, 21. $1142, 22. $1532, 23. $1122, 24. $1112, 25-30. $1102.

Tow money will be a minimum of $152 for all drivers not making the 30-car feature race, but thats just the tip of the iceberg.

Two dates added to 2016 USMTS slate

December 27th, 2015

WEBSTER CITY, Iowa– Two more shows are on the 2016 calendar for the USMTS Casey’s Cup powered by S&S Fishing & Rental.

Officials from the United States Modified Touring Series announced Monday that a stop at the Frontier Sports Park in Fort Dodge, Iowa, is penciled-in for Wednesday, July 20, with a trip to the Adams County Speedway in Corning, Iowa, set for Thursday, Aug. 18.

The series last visited the Frontier Sports Park in 2012 when it was known as Mineral City Speedway. Ryan Gustin won that event en route to his second consecutive USMTS national championship, and leads all drivers with three career wins at the half-mile oval.

Nine-time USMTS national champ Kelly Shryock has two wins while Zack VanderBeek and Tommy Myer also have wins here.

It’s been even longer since race fans at the Adams County Speedway have seen the Best of the Best in dirt modified racing grace the historic half-mile black clay in the Southwest corner of the Hawkeye State.

Jason Krohn won the most recent event in 2010 while Jon Tesch captured the first-ever show at ACS in 2004. In between, wins have also gone to Shryock, VanderBeek, Ryan Ruter, Al Hejna, Tony Fraise and Jason Hughes.

Shryock is the only repeat winner with three checkers to his credit.

The race will take place during the Hunt for the USMTS Casey’s Cup powered by S&S Fishing & Rental.

Both tracks have seen changes in ownership and/or management in the past couple of seasons. Most recently, former NASCAR Busch All-Star Series and World Dirt Racing League director Jim Wilson has been hired as the Chief Race Steward at the Adams County Speedway for 2016.
