Hunt wraps up USMTS Southern Speedweek on high note, locked in for USMTS championship chase

July 4th, 2013

KEARNEY, Mo. – The most grueling stretch of races for the 2013 United States Modified Touring Series campaign wrapped up Saturday night for Trevor Hunt and the #99h Trevor Hunt Racing/FVP/Eibach Springs GRT Chassis, completing nine USMTS events at nine different racetracks over the course of ten days. With huge fields of cars and some of the best in the business behind the wheel of each one, the competition level was as hot as the sun which provided temperatures over 100 degrees for most of the week.

Things got started last Thursday, June 20, at the 81 Speedway near Wichita, Kan., where mechanical failure left Hunt with a 25th-place after starting 19th on the grid. The following night took the team to the Liberal Fairgrounds Speedway in Liberal, Kan., and they walked out with heads held high after recording a top-10 finish after starting the main event from the 17th spot.

Saturday’s show at the Route 66 Motor Speedway in Amarillo, Texas, was in front of a huge crowd and Hunt once again marched past seven drivers en route to a 19th-place finish. Hunt and his team rolled into the Elk City Speedway in Elk City, Okla., with a lot of confidence, but the next five nights proved to be the biggest test of the 14-year-old so far in his career.

Fighting an “evil car” that handled poorly all night, Hunt was unable to transfer out of the “B” Main Tuesday night at the super-fast Devil’s Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas. The same held true for the next three nights, including Thursday at the Kennedale Speedway Park in Kennedale, Texas, where he missed a provisional starting spot by a single point in the Allgayer, Inc. Southern Region standings.

It was a frustrating five nights of racing for Hunt his crew, but they soldiered on to the Southern Oklahoma Speedway in Ardmore, Okla., for the final night of Southern Speedweek and final event in the regional points race. They say that good things come to those who wait, and that was verified Saturday night, June 29. After qualifying fourth-fastest in his heat race group, Hunt led from start to finish in his Heat Race and held off the hottest driver on the USMTS circuit, Johnny Scott, in doing so.

The main event saw a half-dozen cautions, but Hunt avoided the trouble most others could not and ended the week with a 13-place finish at the 3/8-mile clay oval. Hunt finished out the Allgayer, Inc. Southern Region ranked 14 in the final points but, more importantly, punched his ticket to be a part of The Hunt for the USMTS Casey’s Cup which begins in August.

He also continues to show the way in the USMTS Rookie of the Year points standings with a 27-point advantage over Joey Galloway. Hunt and the #99h Trevor Hunt Racing/FVP/Eibach Springs GRT Chassis powered by Yeoman Race Engines will head home to regroup, refocus and reload as they get ready for some big USMTS events to close out the month of July.

In the meantime, they will likely stop in at the Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., this Friday, July 5, and the following Friday to compete in the USRA Modified program and pick up some seat time at the track that will host five more nights of USMTS racing this year. Trevor Hunt Racing is made possible by support from FVP, Eibach Springs, iXL Elite Hydration, DJ Safety, Racegator Transmissions, AERO Race Wheels, Yeoman Race Engines, Keyser Manufacturing, Integra Racing Shocks, GRT Race Cars, Grass Roots Racing Show and Rod End Supply.

Johnny Scott returns to victory lane at Kennedale Speedway Park

June 29th, 2013

KENNEDALE, Texas -The USMTS Modifieds returned to the Kennedale Speedway Park for a second time this season Thursday night, and Johnny Scott picked up where he left off with his second trip to victory lane in as many tries. Dallas-area favorite Troy Taylor wrestled the lead away from Kelly Shryock when the green flag waved to start the 40-lap main event, and then Scott slipped into second place with three laps in the books.

Churning away at the thin cushion around the high side of the track, Taylor maintained a torrid pace up front as Scott hounded him through the first 14 laps with Shryock, Bobby Malchus and Chris Brown in tow. Battling three-wide down the back-stretch for third, something had to give and that something was Malchus’ tire. His slashed American Racer racing tire forced him to slow and stop on the track, bringing out the caution flag just as the leaders were approaching a swarm of back-markers on lap 14.

Scott pulled even with Taylor on the restart, and eventually nosed ahead on lap 17. Twelve laps later, Clyde Dunn Jr. and Dereck Ramirez got together in turn 1 while fighting for the seventh spot. The result was a red flag as Dunn’s machine rolled over at the top of the banking. He was unhurt, but both drivers were out of the contest.

On the restart, Scott pulled away from the pack and the 23-year-old from Las Cruces, N.M., sailed away to his second win in as many nights and second in a row at Kennedale. The win was worth another $4,000 with his “Big Dog Buy-In” and the 18th of his USMTS career. His triumph here on April 26 was his 15th overall at the time. Brown held on for a runner-up paycheck while the winner’s older twin brother, Stormy Scott, quietly advanced to third after needing a provisional to start the feature in 25th.

Coming from 16th on the 27-car starting grid, Zack VanderBeek maneuvered to a fourth-place finish and earned the Mesilla Valley Transportation Hard Charger Award for the fifth time during the 2013 campaign. Shryock held off Rodney Sanders at the checkered flag to take the fifth spot. Taylor, David Winslett, Tristan Dycus and Philip Houston rounded out the top 10.

A strong field of 51 entries were on hand Thursday night for the fifth race in the 4s Motorsports Southern Speedweek powered by Lecolift, with an average of 47+ combatants at each of the events. The excitement continues on Friday as the USMTS Casey’s Cup Series returns to the RPM Speedway in Crandall, Texas, for the Town East Ford “Built Ford Tough 50.”

Grandstands open at 5 p.m. Friday night with the Pre-Race VIP Party presented by ElbowsUp.com from 6-6:30. Hot laps begin at 6:45 and racing gets underway at 7:30 p.m. Limited Modifieds ($1,000 to win), Street Stocks ($750 to win) and Factory
Stocks ($750 to win) are also on the race card. The RPM Speedway is a 1/4-mile semi-banked dirt oval 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 972-427-6822 or visit www.rpmspeedwaytx.com online.

From there, the series wraps up action in the Allgayer, Inc. Southern Region presented by Day Motor Sports with a Saturday night battle at John Webb’s Southern Oklahoma Speedway in Ardmore, Okla.

Bold driving trumps bad draws as Johnny Scott conquers Kennedale

April 28th, 2013

KENNEDALE, Texas- Johnny Scott picked up the win Friday night as the USMTS Modifieds invaded the Kennedale Speedway Park for the first time in the 15-year history of America’s Premier Modified Tour. As bad he was at picking numbers out of a hat, he was equally good at picking up positions on the track.

Starting eighth in his heat race, the 23-year-old from Las Cruces, N.M., roared to a third-place finish in a matter of eight laps which earned him a spot in the redraw among the top 8 drivers in passing points.

The worst of them all in the draw, Scott started eighth in the 26-car field but he spent little time there.

Polesitter Steve Whiteaker Jr. grabbed the lead at the start of the 40-lap main event and proceeded to pace the field through the first half of the race on a wet and bumpy surface.

Clyde Dunn Jr., who started next to Whiteaker on the front row, shadowed Whiteaker the whole way and finally snuck by for the lead on lap 22. One lap later, Whiteaker was in the pits after falling victim to a broken cam in his powerplant.

Dunn’s reign was short-lived, however, as Scott blasted by on the inside two laps later and then proceeded to sail away to his second victory of the season.

“Me and Clyde had a really good battle there,” Scott said in victory lane. “My car was just a little bit better than his so I was just waiting for him to mess up then I was gonna go.”

The win was Scott’s 15th of his USMTS career since getting his first one three years ago at the Lonestar Speedway in Kilgore, Texas.

Rodney Sanders secured his spot at the top of the point standings in the Allgayer, Inc. Southern Region presented by Day Motor Sports with a runner-up finish while Fito Gallardo crossed the finish line third.

Following post-race technical inspections, however, Gallardo was disqualified for unapproved heads which moved 20th-starting J.P. Dowell up to the third position.

Dunn held on for fourth with 2010 USMTS national champion Jason Hughes coming from 17th to round out the top 5 finishers.

Sixth through tenth were Tristan Dycus, nine-time USMTS national champion Kelly Shryock, Thursday night’s winner, Chris Brown, Cody Smith and Chris Huckeba.

On Saturday, the USMTS Modifieds return to the Southern Oklahoma Speedway in Ardmore, Okla.-a USRA Weekly Racing Series track which features USRA Modifieds. Rodney Sanders won the most recent event at the track last June. In the four previous USMTS events here, Ryan Gustin and Jason Hughes each have two wins to their credit.

Gates open at 5 p.m., hot laps begin at 7 and the first green flag waves at 7:30. Limited Mods and Stock Cars will round out the racing program.

The Southern Oklahoma Speedway is a semi-banked 3/8-mile clay oval located 0.7 mile east of I-35 (exit 29) on US 70, then 1.8 miles south on US 77. For more information call 405-627-1766 or click www.southernoklahomaspeedway.com to visit the track’s official website.

Maiden voyages to Killeen and Kennedale, annual trek to Ardmore next on USMTS campaign

April 23rd, 2013

KILLEEN, Texas – Two first-time venues and a series mainstay are on tap this week as the USMTS Modifieds gear up for a trio of events in the Allgayer, Inc. Southern Region presented by Day Motor Sports.

The three-day 4s Motorsports Red River Rumble powered by Lecolift will kick off on Thursday, April 25, at the Texas Thunder Speedway in Killeen, Texas, and then on to the Kennedale Speedway Park in Kennedale, Texas, on Friday, April 26. The trio of titanic events concludes on Saturday, April 27, with a trip to the Southern Oklahoma Speedway in Ardmore, Okla.

The “Big Dog Buy-In” will be in effect each night to create a possible $12,000 take-home pay for one driver. Each race pays $2,000 to win, but the Big Dog Buy-In allows any driver to gamble an extra $100 at the time of registration to compete for an extra $2,000 cash for taking the win. In ten points races this season, a gambler has won the main event nine times.

Thursday’s event will mark the first-ever visit to David Good’s Texas Thunder Speedway in the 15-year history of the United States Modified Touring Series, with Limited Mods also joining the program. Gates will open at 5 p.m. with hot laps
slated for 6:45 and racing at 7 p.m.

Although Friday’s tilt at the Kennedale Speedway Park will be the first for the USMTS, finding the track should be no problem for most teams as the facility is located just across the street from the now-dormant Cowtown Speedway.

Gates will swing open at 5 p.m. with hot laps at 7.30 and racing at 8 p.m. Support
classes include Street Stocks, Factory Stocks and Mod Lites.

The Kennedale Speedway Park is a semi-banked 1/4-mile dirt oval located 1.7 miles southeast of I-20 on Mansfield Hwy. (exit 442-A), 1.6 miles southwest on New Hope Rd., then 0.3 mile east on Hudson Village Creek Rd. For more information call 817-988-7433 or check out www.raceksp.com on the World Wide Web.

Saturday sees the series’ return to the Southern Oklahoma Speedway where promoter and off-and-on USMTS competitor John Webb is enjoying his sophomore season at the former Lake Country Speedway.

Webb, who purchased the facility in 2011, has made several notable changes to the landscape, including new infield lights, painted buildings, a new concession stand with a bigger kitchen as well as an inside eating area on the spectator side and remolded bathrooms on both the pits and grandstand area.

Rodney Sanders won the most recent event at the Southern Oklahoma Speedway last June. In the four previous USMTS events here, Ryan Gustin and Jason Hughes each have two wins to their credit.

Gates open at 5 p.m., hot laps begin at 7 and the first green flag waves at 7:30. Limited Mods and Stock Cars will round out the racing program.

The Southern Oklahoma Speedway is a semi-banked 3/8-mile clay oval located 0.7 mile east of I-35 (exit 29) on US 70, then 1.8 miles south on US 77. For more information call 405-627-1766 or click www.southernoklahomaspeedway.com to visit the track’s official website.
