Ullrich, Crapser capture USRA Holley Iron Man Series wins at Crawford County Speedway

May 23rd, 2015

DENISON, Iowa -The Holley Iron Man Series made its maiden voyage to the Crawford County Speedway in Denison, Iowa, on Thursday, and fans were witness to a pair of exciting feature race finishes to cap off the night. Cory Crapser led all but the first lap of the USRA B-Mod main event and had built himself a huge cushion over the field on several occasions, only to be wiped out by a caution.

The final yellow flag with three laps to go nearly doomed the two-time defending Holley Iron man Series champs plans for a victory lane celebration when local ace Chris Abelson began to pressure the leader. Abelson was able to pull alongside of Crapser several times, but the Chippewa Falls, Wis., racer was able to withstand the challenges and hold off Abelson for the win, which was worth $600.

Jake McBirnie and Johnathon Logue both making their first-ever Holley Iron Man Series starts claimed third- and fourth-place finishes, respectively, while first-lap leader Dan Wheeler rounded out the top five at the finish line. Points leader Dakota Foster was sixth, Tim Rupp finished seventh, Keagan Scott wound up eighth, Thomas Van Dyke claimed the ninth spot and Jared Timmerman completed the top 10.

The 20-lap USRA Stock Car feature was a barn-burner from start to finish. Former series champ and two-time USRA Stock Car National Champion Tom Schmitt assumed command of the main event at the waving of the green flag and continued to lead the first half of the race with a flock of full-fendered machines jockeying for position right behind him.

Using the low groove and inching closer to the front each lap, Mitch Hovden finally made the pass and took control on lap 11. By lap 16, Chris Ullrich had gotten around Schmitt and began chipping away at Hovdens advantage using the high line around the high-banked 3/8-mile clay oval.

The two front-runners ran virtually side-by-side the final two laps, but Hovden bobbled slightly exiting the final turn and that was all that Ullrich needed to beat him to the checkered flag by inches. The win was Ullrichs second Holley Iron Man Series victory and worth $750 to the Kiron, Iowa, driver.

Behind runner-up Hovden, Nathan Wood nipped Schmitt for third with Lynn Panos taking the fifth spot.

Sixth through tenth went to Trent Partridge, Kyle Falck, Steve Jackson, Stefan Sybesma and Todd Staley.

Dillard wins Denison thriller

May 23rd, 2015

DENISON, Iowa-Cade Dillard’s last-minute decision to make the 14-hour haul from Robeline, La., paid off to the tune of $3,000 Thursday with a thrilling United States Modified Touring Series victory at the Crawford County Speedway in Denison, Iowa.

“I wasn’t going to be able to come up here, but thanks to (USMTS President) Todd Staley hounding me about coming up here and running, and the support I get from Chris Brown and LG21 Race Cars, we decide to do it,” Dillard said in victory lane. “All of my crew guys were gone this week, so my dad took off work to come with me. It’s just me and him all weekend.”

The 24-year-old got a break early on when local favorite and former track champion Jesse Sobbing suffered a flat tire while leading, and then had to fend off furious challenges from Stormy Scott and Rodney Sanders in the late stages of the race to claim his second career USMTS trophy.

With Dillard to his right, Sobbing started on the pole and took charge of the race on the start.

As the first dozen laps ticked off, Sobbing amassed a three-second lead over the pack while Dillard, Casey Arneson, Stormy Scott, Rodney Sanders and others were in embroiled in furious battles for the next positions.

Sobbing’s hopes for a second USMTS win during his rookie season were dashed on lap 13 when a flat tire on his Home Pride machine forced him to stop at the top of turn 4.

After the caution, Arneson assumed control of the race but Dillard powered by on the outside the next time around to lead lap 15.

While Dillard continued to chew away at the cushion on the high side of the track, Scott made his way into the runner-up spot and slowly reeled in Dillard using the other half of the racing surface.

Scott pulled alongside of Dillard as the pair exited the fourth turn and led by a bumper as they completed the 28th lap, but Dillard grinded through the next corner to pull back in front and then drove to the low side in turn 3 to fill the preferred line of his pursuers.

At this point the yellow flag appeared for the final time, but Dillard now knew what he had to do.

Sanders grabbed the second spot from Scott on the restart, but Dillard’s strong start gave him a cushion that Sanders could not overcome and Dillard inched away over the final six laps to claim the winner’s paycheck.

“I saw Stormy underneath of me there and I knew the line was probably coming in down there, but I hated to break my rhythm because we had it going pretty good,” Dillard recalled. “The top was really good in (turns) one and two, but the bottom got cleaned up and was better in three and four. I heard on the RACEceiver that Stormy and Rodney were behind me, so I knew it was going to be a close race.”

Sanders finished in the runner-up position with Jason Hughes climbing up for third and Scott hanging on for fourth despite heavy damage to his rear spoiler during the final six-lap sprint.

Kelly Shryock turned a dominating win in his Real Racing Wheels B Main into a top five finish in the Caseys General Stores A Main.

Despite his early-race disappointment, Sobbing clawed his way back over the final 22 laps to secure a sixth-place finish with Arneson seventh, Zack VanderBeek eighth, Grant Junghans ninth and Daniel Hilsabeck celebrating his 25th birthday with a tenth-place finish.

Three more big shows cap off the annual Memorial Day Weekend swing for the USMTS Caseys Cup powered by S&S Fishing & Rental, beginning with the 8th Annual Guttormson Memorial on Friday, May 22, at the Chateau Raceway in Lansing, Minn.

In 16 previous visits to the Chateau Raceway, only three drivers have multiple wins.

Multi-time track champ Brandon Davis has three, including the most recent event during Memorial Day Weekend last year.

Tommy Myer and Jon Tesch both have two wins while single victories are in the back pockets of Joey Jensen, Mike Sorensen, Ryan Gustin, Doug Hillson, Jason Hughes, Tim Donlinger, Jason Krohn, Kelly Shryock and Mike Chasteen.

Pits open at 5 p.m., grandstands open at 5:30 and hot laps begin at 6:30 with racing to follow.

USRA B-Mods, Midwest Mods and Pure Stocks will round Fridays card at the always-exciting semi-banked 1/3-mile gumbo clay oval.

Race fans can find discount coupons good for $2 off adult grandstand admission at Caseys General Stores locations in Austin and Blooming Prairie. To find the location nearest you, visit www.caseys.com.

First-time winner Zeitner tops Deery Series opener at Crawford County

April 8th, 2015

DENISON, Iowa – The much-anticipated return of the Deery Brothers Summer Series to Crawford County Speedway ended with a first-time IMCA Late Model tour winner.

Corey Zeitner took charge following a lap 16 restart and led to the checkers in Saturday’s 50-lap, $3,000 to win main event at Denison.

“It was definitely one of my biggest wins. It was good to get a win running with these guys,” said Zeitner, who had just four career series starts to his credit coming into the night. “There were a lot of big names here and it was good to know we can run with them.”

Tyler Bruening, Andy Nezworski, Joe Zrostlik and John Emerson completed the top five. Finishes by Zrostlik and Emerson were the best of their respective tour careers; Emerson cracked the top five after starting 19th.

Nezworski started on the pole and led the first 10 circuits. Defending champion Justin Kay sped past, led to lap 16 and then pulled into the infield while under caution with an overheating engine.

Zeitner, who’d started fifth, made his move to the front on the ensuing restart. Bruening made up ground when Zeitner was forced to navigate through lapped traffic but couldn’t make the race a closer one.

“Once I found the middle, I got faster,” Zeitner said. “We’ve raced here a lot and I know the line.”

Samples were taken from Zeitner’s tires and results remain unofficial. Nezworski won the $250 Sunoco Race Fuels feature qualifier drawing.

The one previous Deery event at Denison was held on July 28, 1994 and two of the drivers who started that feature – Jeff Aikey and Darrel DeFrance – were in the Saturday field. DeFrance extended his perfect tour attendance mark to 435 races.

Next up for the series is the Saturday, April 11 show at West Liberty Raceway. Pit gates open at 4:30 p.m., the grandstand opens at 5:30 p.m. and hot laps are at 6:30 p.m. with racing to follow.

April 4 opener takes Deery Series to Crawford County Speedway

March 28th, 2015

DENISON, Iowa – More than two decades after its only previous visit, the Deery Brothers Sum­mer Series returns to Crawford County Speedway on Saturday, April 4.

Opening night for the IMCA Late Model tour brings the series back to Denison for the first time since July 28 of 1994.

Gary Webb of Blue Grass was the winner that evening, earning the second in what became a record four straight feature victories and eventually the first of three career tour championships.

The Deery show scheduled last April at Crawford County was rained out.

“With the blast of unseasonably mild weather recently, we’re optimistic about the series opener in Denison,” said Tour Director Kevin Yoder. “Once we get that event in we’ll be off and running with what promises to be another outstanding series.”

The main event pays $3,000 to win and a minimum of $300 to start. Also on the program are IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars and Mach-1 Sport Compacts racing for IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing National, regional and Allstar Performance State points.

Pit gates at Denison will be open all day on April 4. The grandstand opens at 4:30 p.m. Hot laps are at 6:30 p.m. with racing to follow.

Grandstand admission is $15 for adults, $5 for students and free for kids five and under. Pit passes are $30.

More information is available by calling 712 269-6335 and at the www.ccsdirtracing.com website.

DeDefending champion is Justin Kay of Wheatland. Marshalltown’s Darrel DeFrance has competed at all 434 events through the series’ first 28 seasons.

The second of 18 Deery dates this season is Saturday, April 11 at West Liberty Raceway.

Crawford County on schedule for April 4 Deery Series opener

January 30th, 2015

DENISON, Iowa – The 2015 Deery Brothers Summer Series will take its first green flag at Crawford County Speedway.

After inclement weather washed out numerous attempts to bring the series back to Denison last spring, the upcoming IMCA Late Model tour travels to Crawford County for open­ing night action on Saturday, April 4.

In all, the 29th annual series currently has 16 dates. The first 15 of those events pay $3,000 to win and a mini­mum of $300 to start. Additional tour dates are still pending.

“It’s nice to have our highest paying race as the series finale at the Yan­kee Dirt Track Classic at Farley Speedway,” Tour Director Kevin Yoder said. “That feature pays $7,500 to win so it should make for an exciting conclusion to the series.”

The one previous Deery race at Denison was held in 1994. Kossuth County Speedway in Algona has also hosted just one tour event, in 2008, and brings the series back for a July 2 show.

“If we get all our races in, this year’s schedule is geographically balanced within our Late Model area,” Yoder noted. “That should give more drivers in central and western Iowa the chance to follow the series.”

Four events are on the initial series schedule before the start of the weekly IMCA Late Model point season: April 4 at Denison, April 11 at West Liberty Raceway, April 17 at Farley and April 18 at Hamilton County Speedway in Webster City.

The series is at Quad City Speedway in East Moline, Ill., on May 3 and at Boone Speedway for the traditional Memorial Day show on May 25.

Marshalltown Speedway hosts the June 2 race. After visiting Algona, the series is at West Liberty Race­way July 7, Independence Motor Speedway on July 8, Dubuque Speedway on July 12 and back at Quad City on July 22.

Liberty 100 shows are qualifying on Sept. 4 and two $3,000 to win features on Sept. 5. The Sept. 7 Labor Day feature during the IMCA Speed­way Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s brings the tour back to Boone with that even­ing’s winner earning a bonus based on their number of sanctioned weekly starts during the season and a possible $4,500 payday. Farley’s Sept. 18 and 19 Yankee Dirt Track Classic brings the series to a close.

Crawford County Speedway Set for First-Ever World of Outlaws Visit in 2015

November 21st, 2014

DENISON, Iowa. –The rumble of 410-winged sprint cars will return to Crawford County Speedway in Iowa, for the
first time in quite a while in 2015, as the track welcomes the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series. The inaugural World of Outlaws event at Crawford County Speedway is scheduled for Friday, June 12.

Crawford County Speedway is located in Denison, Iowa, at the Crawford County Fairgrounds and has been hosting racing since the 1950s. The size of the track has changed over the years from its original design as a sprawling half-mile to the current semi-banked three-eighths-mile (four-tenths-mile around the top) configuration, with wide, sweeping corners. Within the last few years, the track has installed brand new grandstand seating and concession stand areas.

“It’s going to be huge for our community to have the World of Outlaws come to town,” said Gary Volkert of the Crawford County Race Board. “When I say to folks locally that the Outlaws are coming, their eyes get big and wide. We are motivated to get more recognition for the track to show it off and this will certainly do that. There are a lot of people that have never been to Crawford County Speedway and will definitely come to see the World of Outlaws.”

Leading the way into the 2015 World of Outlaws STP Series campaign will be six-time series champion, Donny Schatz, who has had quite a bite of success with the series in the state of Iowa, including winning eight of the last nine Knoxville Nationals. Daryn Pittman, the 2013 World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series champion, was victorious in the state of Iowa this past season, in the Speed Sport World Challenge at the famed Knoxville Raceway. Kraig Kinser, a third-generation driver, also won in Iowa in 2014 at Clay County Fair Speedway.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series has raced at six different tracks in Iowa over the last 36 years, with the first of those coming during the series inaugural 1978 campaign. This past season racing in the Hawkeye State, the series contested five racing programs, four of
which were part of the Knoxville Nationals, with five different drivers picking up wins.

Crawford County Speedway joins Dakota State Fair Speedway in South Dakota, as tracks hosting an inaugural World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series event in 2015.

“The Outlaws are a whole different ballgame,” said Volkert. “It’s a true show and a spectacle to be seen. We’ve had 360-sprint cars here the last few years and they carry a lot of speed down the backstretch, but the Outlaws will be even faster. The drivers are very talented and the cars are very fast. We are extremely excited for the event and are already working on plans, so that on June 12, we are ready to go.”

Crawford County Speedway sanctions Sprint Cars with IMCA

February 28th, 2014

DENISON, Iowa – A class of race cars previously featured during fair specials joins weekly shows this season at Crawford County Speedway.

IMCA Eagle Motorsports RaceSaver Sprint Cars make their debut at Denison during the Deery Brothers Summer Series program at Denison on April 5. They’ll be part of regular Friday races from May 2 through Aug. 22.

Season championship night for five other sanctioned divisions, the IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modifieds, IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars, IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks, Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods and Mach-1 Sport Compacts, will be Aug. 29.

“We were looking for a division that complemented the rest of our regular classes and the Sprint Cars do that,” Race Director Kay Schurke explained. “This is one way we can expand our fan base. We have a lot of people in the area who like Sprint Cars and I know drivers in the other classes like watching them, too.”

Schurke anticipates sharing Sprint Car drivers with Eagle, Neb., Raceway, a Saturday night venue some two hours to the west.

Eagle Promoter Roger Hadan has already met with Crawford County Speedway officials to discuss the new division and has talked to his local drivers about racing at Denison.

Sprints are also part of the Thursday, July 3 card at Denison. Their point season ends a week earlier than the other IMCA divisions because of the Aug. 29-31 Sprint Car Super Nationals at Eagle.

RaceSaver Sprint Car drivers are required to use individually measured, stamped and registered cylinder heads.

Crawford County Speedway is the second track in the state to add the division to weekly shows this season. The Iowa State Fairgrounds Speedway in Des Moines announced plans to do so last fall.

Billy Moyer Jr. Knocks Down First Win of 2012

May 18th, 2012

Batesville, Arkansas – It’s not been the start to the 2012 campaign that Billy Moyer Jr. had been hoping, but on Saturday night he got things on the right track by piloting his #21jr Henderson Motorsports/Car City/Imperial Motors/Victory Circle M1 Chassis By Moyer/Pro Power Racing Engine Super Late Model to the feature win at Crawford County Speedway.

Billy entered a single event over the weekend and made the most out of the outing by claiming his first feature win of 2012 on Saturday night at Crawford County Speedway (Van Buren, Arkansas) in COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) Super Late Model action. Twenty competitors registered for battle, and Moyer Jr. began his night by winning the first heat race to earn the New Vision Graphics Pole Position for the 35 lap feature. He would grab the lead at the drop of the green flag, and never looked back on his way to the $2,000 win, which came over Jon Kirby, Jack Sullivan, Brandon Smith, and Kyle Beard. Full results are available at www.COMPDirt.com.

“It feels great to finally get the first win of the year. I really feel like our program is getting better and better, so hopefully this is the first of several wins for this year,” commented Moyer Jr.

This weekend, May 18th-19th, Billy will enter the inaugural Bad Boy 98 at his home track, Batesville Motor Speedway (Locust Grove, Arkansas). The unique event will reward the winner with a $10,000 check and a brand new Chevrolet Camaro, while a lucky fan will win a Ford Mustang. The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) sanctioned event gets underway on Friday night with time trials and heat race action, while Saturday’s program will be headlined by b-mains and the 98 lap finale.

Billy Moyer Jr. Breaks Through with CCSDS Triumph at Crawford County

May 15th, 2012

Van Buren, AR – 2009 Series Champion, Billy Moyer Jr., ended his 2012 winless streak by claiming the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) feature win on Saturday night at Crawford County Speedway (Van Buren, Arkansas).

After winning the first heat race Moyer Jr. was the New Vision Graphics Pole Qualifier for the 35 lap, $2,000-to-win event. He was joined on the front row by Jack Sullivan, and as the green flag waved on the event Moyer Jr. bolted to the top spot with Sullivan, Jon Kirby, Brandon Smith, and Kyle Beard in pursuit. With a bottom-groove, dominant track passing would be difficult, and despite four cautions to regroup the field nobody would have anything for the leader, Moyer Jr.

Jack Sullivan held down the second position until a tight race car allowed Kirby to slip by for the spot with a couple of laps remaining. Billy Moyer Jr. claimed the win over Kirby, Sullivan, Smith, and Beard. Moyer Jr. now has eight career wins on the CCSDS tour, and is tied for second on the series all-time win list with Bill Frye. Wallace leads the record books with twelve, career triumphs.

GRT Race Cars Heat Race #1 was won by Billy Moyer Jr. with Jack Sullivan winning NEA Super Gas/Killer Coatings Heat Race #2 and RiceTec Heat Race #3 being claimed by Kyle Beard.

Johnny Virden earned the Larry Shaw Race Cars Hard Charger Award for passing five cars in the feature event. The Quarter Master Hard Luck Award went to Keith Lawson, who saw a top ten run come to an end after a lap 27 tangle with lap traffic.

The COMP Cams Super Dirt Series now takes off the rest of May before resuming the 2012 campaign on Saturday, June 2nd at Riverside International Speedway (West Memphis, Arkansas) in the $2,000-to-win/$400-to-start, Bartlett Hardwood Floor Service 35.
