KILGORE, Texas — Cade Dillard secured his sixth USMTS victory of the season Saturday night at the Lonestar Speedway after Jon Mitchell was denied the first of his career when he came up light at the scales following an apparent win at the 4th Annual Summit Spring Modified Nationals.
From the outside of the front row, Mitchell led all 35 laps with Dillard close behind the entire distance, but during post-race technical inspection his machine was found to be underweight and he was disqualified, handing the trophy to Dillard.
For Dillard, the $3,000 triumph put a stamp on his Summit Racing Equipment USMTS Southern Region championship which earned him an additional $10,000.
Grant Junghans Rookie of the Year contender Travis Saurer received the runner-up honors, Jason Ingalls claimed the third spot, Zack VanderBeek followed up his win the night before with a fourth-place finish and Chris Brown followed VanderBeek to the checkered flag for the second straight race and wound up fifth.
Fourteenth-starting Ryan Gustin, Dereck Ramirez, Chris Henigan, Tyler Wolff and Kyle Pleasant completed the top 10. Henigan earned the KSE Racing Products Hard Charger Award for advancing 13 positions from his 21st starting spot.
Gustin came home second behind Dillard in the final regional standings with Brown, Jason Hughes and VanderBeek rounding out the top five. Sixth through tenth were Stormy Scott, Ramirez, Saurer, R.C. Whitwell and Joe Duvall. Wolff, Ricky Thornton Jr., Trevor Egbert, Johnny Scott and Adam Kates completed the top 15 and all locked themselves in to this year’s Hunt for the Casey’s General Stores USMTS National Championship powered by S&S Fishing & Rental.
In all, more $380,000 in purses and points fund money were earned by drivers during the 21-race Summit Racing Equipment USMTS Southern Region presented by Production Jars.

The Texas racer wired the field in the Topless Turkey Nationals to pick up the $3,000 top prize in front of countless friends and family.
“It’s about time we put this hot rod in victory lane,” said Bagley. “We struggled so bad the first half of the year, but here at the end we’ve finally been able to pick things back up. I definitely didn’t want to go winless on the year.”
He concluded by saying, “It means a lot to win a race so close to the house with my car owner, Wayman McMillan, and all of my friends and family here. I want to thank everyone, who has stood behind this team this year. I truly believe 2017 is going to be a really good year for us.”
Piloting the P&W Sales #14M Super Late Model, Morgan Bagley headed to Lone Star Speedway (Kilgore, Texas) on Saturday night for the P&W Sales Southern United Professional Racing (SUPR), sanctioned Topless Turkey Nationals.
With 21 Super Late Models registered, Bagley stormed to a heat race win from the 3rd-starting spot, which placed him 2nd on the starting rundown for the A-Main. Reeling in his first victory of the season, Morgan topped Tyler Erb, Jon Mitchell, Zach McMillan, and B.J. Robinson in the 40-lap main event. Bagley was awarded a $3,000 payday for his triumph in the SUPR season finale.

FORT WORTH, TX – Cody Coughlin had himself a solid night in the Lone Star State. Coughlin qualified his Kyle Busch Motorsports No. 51 in the 14th spot for his start Friday night at the fast Texas Motor Speedway in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. The 20 year-old knocked on the door of a top-10 finish throughout the Rattlesnake 400 and finished in 12th.
“This was a lot better than Kansas. I felt like we ran a lot better tonight,” said Coughlin. “I just need to get better on restarts and I think we’ll be good in the future.”
Coughlin and his JEGS.com/Racer’s Choice Inc. Toyota Tundra didn’t have the speed he needed on restarts, but after about five laps into a green flag run, Coughlin was as fast as the leaders.
“I don’t know if it was aero stuff or what, but I’ll learn from it for sure,” said Coughlin. “Overall it was very solid. I’m not ecstatic, but I’m not disappointed. I learned a lot from an aerodynamics standpoint and Bono (Manion) and the entire KBM team worked hard all day and I appreciate what they do.”
The Ohio native will fly from Texas to Marne, Michigan where he will pilot both his Pro and Super Late Models the rest of the weekend at the Berlin Raceway. His weekend will culminate in the Battle at Berlin 251 on Monday with the ARCA / CRA Super Series. Coughlin is the current series points leader.
“It’ll be really cool to get win at Berlin; I learned a lot from my boss at KBM (Kyle Busch) last year on how to race that place,” Coughlin said. “I haven’t been able to win there yet, but I think that’s what we’re getting ready to do.
“I just can’t thank Racer’s Choice, Royal Purple, Fragola, J5 Tactical, and MAHLE enough for coming on board and helping me and KBM out this weekend to make this all possible. Kyle and Samantha (Busch) and the entire KBM team give me an unbelievable opportunity to advance my career. And of course none of this would be possible without the love and support of my parents, Di and John, and my sister, Kennedi, and the blessings that our Lord has given us.”

Magnolia, Texas- Tyler Erb utilized a late-race, slide job to propel his First Class Septic #91 Rocket by Erb Super Late Model to the $3,000 feature win at Lone Star Speedway on Saturday evening.
After having Saturday’s P&W Sales Southern United Professional Racers (SUPR) Late Model Series event at Boothill Speedway cancelled due to bad weather, the following night’s action at Lone Star Speedway (Kilgore, Texas) was
pushed forward from Sunday to Saturday in hopes the races could beat out Mother Nature.
Via preliminary action, Tyler locked into the 5th starting spot for the Memorial Day 40 feature event at the 3/8 mile oval. Erb progressively worked his way forward in the field and found himself in the 2nd position as the event approached its latter stages. With just two laps remaining he executed a daring slide job on leader, BJ Robinson, to claim the lead and ultimately the P&W Sales SUPR Late Model Series $3,000 victory. The win marked his second of the season. B.J. Robinson, Jon Mitchell, Rick Duke Jr., and Patrik Daniel rounded out the top five finishers.
“I know B.J. (Robinson) wasn’t happy with the slide job for the lead, but it was just racing,” said Erb, who had skipped his senior prom to compete in the event. “My team is performing so well right now, and I just can’t wait
for the next race.”
For full results from this event, please visit www.SUPRRacing.com http://www.SUPRRacing.com.
Tyler had planned to compete at Thunder Valley Speedway (Glenmora,Louisiana) in the upcoming weekend’s $5,000-to-win event. Unfortunately Mother Nature has forced the cancellation of the event. As a result, the team will next return to action at Eldora Speedway (Rossburg, Ohio) on June 4th-6th in the 21st Annual Dirt Late Model Dream. The event includes twin $2,500-to-win features on Thursday evening, twin $5,000-to-win features on Friday evening, and ultimately a $100,000-to-win event on Saturday. For more information on the event, please visit www.EldoraSpeedway.com

DALLAS-FORT WORTh–The mud-slinging Modifieds of the USMTS Caseys Cup powered by S&S Fishing & Rental will take their mulligan this week as they head to the Dallas-Fort Worth area for the first of three events to kick off the Double H Bands Southern Region presented by Day Motor Sports.
This week’s tripleheader kicks off on Thursday, April 9, at the Superbowl Speedway in Greenville, Texas. From there, the tireless USMTS touring titans return to the RPM Speedway in Crandall, Texas, on Friday before wrapping up the weekend on Saturday, April 11, at the Longdale Speedway in Longdale, Okla.
Thanks to a wintry, rainy start to the month of March in North Texas, the three-race swing was postponed one month ago to this week.
James and Becky Bryants Superbowl Speedway held their first event last March with Johnny Scott taking the win while his twin brother, Stormy Scott, grabbed the victory when the series made a return visit in June.
The 1/4-mile semi-banked dirt oval plays host to some top notch USRA Modified pilots every Saturday night, so USMTS drivers will once again have their hands full with the tough local and regional talent in the Lone Star State.
Gates open at 5 p.m. with races starting at 7 p.m. Adult grandstand tickets are $15 while kids ages 7-11 and seniors 65 and older with ID are $10. Children 6 and under get in for free. Pit passes are $35. Limited Mods and Factory Stocks will also be in action.
The Superbowl Speedway is located 5.0 miles south of Greenville on SR 34, then west on FM 1903. For more information call 903-883-2504 or visit them online at www.superbowlspeedway.com.
After a one-year hiatus, the USMTS returns to the cozy confines of the RPM Speedway on Friday for another knock-down drag-out bullring battle at the 1/4-mile semi-banked dirt oval.
On March 15, 2013, Rodney Sanders picked up the win in his home state en route to capturing his first of two straight USMTS national championships.
This Friday, gates open at 4 p.m. and races start at 7 p.m. Limited Mods, Stock Cars, Street Stocks and Factory Stocks will also be racing.
Another USRA-sanctioned facility, the RPM Speedway is located southeast of US 175 in Crandall, Texas, on CR 4106 (Bud Stoy Rd. exit) to the intersection of CR 4104. For more information call 972-217-2766 or visit www.rpmspeedwaytexas.com.
With an eleventh-hour addition to the 2014 campaign, the Longdale Speedway in Longdale, Okla., added a USMTS date when another nearby track was forced to cancel on the eve of the week when the series was to invade.
Track owner Jessie Hoskins stepped in to fill the open date then, and he did it again this year.
When the Lonestar Speedway was unable to reschedule their rained-out event in March due to commitments with neighboring venues, Hoskins was ready to bring the fire-breathing USMTS machines back to his one-year-old, high-speed, high-banked half-mile clay oval that boasts 22-degree straight-aways and 26 degrees of banking in the turns.
Stormy Scott christened the new joint with his 24th career USMTS victory over a 42-car field on May 16, 2014, and the series will return this Saturday, April 11, to put a bow on a whirlwind weekend in the south.
Gates open at 4 p.m. with racing is scheduled to start at 6 p.m. Adult grandstand tickets are $15, seniors and military with ID are $10 and kids ages 6-12 get in for $5. Children 5 and under are admitted free of charge. Pit passes are $35.
Also on the card are non-sanctioned Sport Mods and Grand Nationals with both classes racing for $1,000 to win.
The Longdale Speedway is located about 0.5 mile south of Longdale on SR 58. For more information, check out www.longdalespeedway.com or call 580-886-5375.
All three events this week will pay $3,000 to win.

Throughout the course of the 50 lapper, Chris battled with fourth-starting Steven Whiteaker Jr. for the top spot.

Longview, Texas – Morgan Bagley ended his 2013 season with a bang -On Saturday evening in his #14m P&W Sales/Rocket By R.E.
Consulting/Clements Super Late Model by claiming sweet redemption in the annual Lone Star Turkey Nationals at Lone Star Speedway (Kilgore, Texas). The redemption came in the form of a $5,000 payday at the 3/8 mile oval, which marked his second win of the 2013 season.
In 2012 Morgan led a majority of the feature in the same event before a broken axle late in the going forced him to retire pit-side before the checkered flag. As a result he returned to the scene of the crime for his final race of 2013 on Saturday afternoon hoping to score the redeeming win. By the time the checkered flag dropped on the finale, it was mission accomplished.
Thirty-one Super Late Models entered the program, which was sanctioned by the P&W Sales Southern United Professional Racing (SUPR) Super Late Models. A 4th to 1st run in his heat race locked Morgan into the pole position for the 50 lap finale, where he was joined on the front row by Robbie Stuart. As the feature race went green it was Bagley, who took control of the lead, and
it would be a position he never relinquished as he led all 50 laps to score the victory over Rob Litton with Shane Hebert, Robbie Stuart, and Allen Tippen rounding out the top five finishers.
“Tonight was just a great way to make up for last year’s bad luck in this race, and it’s great to end our year with a big win,” a relieved Bagley noted in victory lane. “After a year of staying on the road with WoO and going to a lot of new places, it was awesome to come home in front of so many friends, family, and sponsors to get this victory.”
Full results from the event are available at www.SUPRRacing.com .
Team 14 now turns their attention to 2014, which will see Bagley embarking on a sophomore tour on the World of Outlaws (WoO) Super Late Model tour. Before beginning action with the WoO series during Georgia/Florida Speedweeks the team will likely travel to Tucson and El Paso in January to compete in the National Dirt Racing League (NDRL) early-season events.
Morgan Bagley would like to thank all of his sponsors, which include P&W Sales (Oil Field Manufacturers Rep.), MSI (Pumps, Valves, & Manifolds), Mr. Frank Motorsports, P&W Iron Works, GottaRace.com, RE Racing Consultants, Tim Ables Trucking, Bert Transmission, Frankland Rear-End, Arizona Sports Shirts, Racing Optics, Sunoco Race Fuels, Barnes Systems, MSD, STP, Wiles Racing, Integra Shock, FK Rod Ends, JE Pistons, J&J Motorsports, Hypercoils, Outerwears Performance Products, Wilwood, Wix Filters, Armor All, COMP Cams, XS Power, Hoosier Tire Southwest, Wrisco Aluminum, TWM Racing Products, Day Motorsports, Keyser Manufacturing, and MSRMafia.com Marketing Services.

KILGORE, Tx- Two-time and reigning Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series National Champion Jimmy Owens survived to win the 50-lap High Banks Havoc on Saturday Night at LoneStar Speedway. Owens earned $10,000 for his second LOLMDS win of the
season and the 38th of his career.
Owens took the lead from Scott Bloomquist on lap 33 and then held off Bloomquist for the win. Steve Francis finished third followed by Don O’Neal and Jared Landers.
“It is really a weight off of our shoulders to win this race after we had a rough time in Florida. It really was a pretty good race having several different leaders, I saw Scott running a line to avoid the holes and I followed him for a longtime, and finally we were able to pass him,” said Owens.
“You had to have a super good car tonight to withstand the tough track conditions. My crew worked really hard to prepare the car for these conditions tonight and it paid off. We’ve been needing a good points night and we got it tonight. I have to thank my car owner Mike Reece, Reece Monument Company, Gantte Appraisals, Sunoco Race Fuels and everybody else with this race team,”
O’Neal would take the lead at the start of the race and hold the point until he slowed with a flat tire on the 19th lap. After O’Neal pitted for a fresh tire, he rejoined the race on the tail. Bloomquist then inherited the lead, and led until
lap 33 when Owens powered by Bloomquist for lead.
Bloomquist like Owens needed a good points night as well and got what he wanted. “We started off slow last year and came back to finish third in the points. It was treacherous tonight, but we have a well-built car and it held up in these rough
conditions. We were airborne several times out there and then we found a line that was somewhat smoother to run but I couldn’t hold Jimmy off. Congratulations to Jimmy on his win in one of our cars and Dennis (Erb) had a good finish as well.”
Francis, who like his counterparts came into the race looking to move up in the points, was pleased with his third place finish. “The crew worked hard on the car and we were fast all night. I was able to keep it up front most of the race and
thought we might get past Scott (Bloomquist), but just couldn’t get by him. It was just a night of survival but we will take a third place finish and go from there, said Steve Francis, driver of the Clint Bowyer Racing Team entry.
Completing the top ten were Dennis Erb Jr.; Chris Wall, John Blankenship, B.J. Robinson and Bobby Pierce.
In preliminary action, Bobby Pierce set the overall Time (Group B) amongst the 39 entrants, with a lap of 14.199 seconds. Don O’Neal set the fastest time in Group A with a time of 14.257 seconds. Don O’Neal, Scott Bloomquist, Earl Pearson Jr.,
and Jimmy Owens won their respective Heat Races. Tyler Erb and Chris Wall won their respective B-Mains.
The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will return to action in two weeks with a trek through the Appalachian Mountains for three events. The series will be at Roaring Knob Motorsports Complex in Markleysburg, PA on Friday, April 19th. On Saturday, April 20th, the series will venture to Hagerstown Speedway in Hagerstown, MD.
