Thornton conquers “The Cage”

April 24th, 2017

ATCHISON, Kan. — Twenty-six days of silence was broken Thursday night when the USMTS Casey’s Cup powered by S&S Fishing & Rental invaded the Atchison County Raceway and refired the engines for the 2nd Annual “Cage Match.”

The Scott brothers-Johnny and Stormy-filled the front row for the start of the 50-lap MSD Central Region main event, and Stormy Scott jumped out to lead the first 13 laps until the race’s first caution flag waved for a slowing car with a flat tire.

But Stormy Scott had a flat tire of his own. He ducked into the pits under caution and never returned to rejoin the field, giving Johnny Scott the point for the restart.

With Cade Dillard and Chase Junghans tucked in behind, Rodney Sanders snuck into third on lap 14 and the top four reeled off another six 12-second orbits around the high-banked 1/5-mile oval until the next yellow waved with 20 laps complete.

At the halfway mark, Johnny Scott continued to lead Dillard around the high side of the track with Sanders, Ricky Thornton Jr. and Josh Blumer filling the rest of the top five spots.

Hard contact on the short back-stretch between Sanders, Darron Fuqua and Dereck Ramirez. Although the green flag remained out, the incident caused crippling to the Modifieds of Sanders and Ramirez.

With the laps winding down, Thornton began to search around the middle of the track and found a spot to slide up in front of Johnny Scott to lead the 45th circuit, but Thornton crawled over the cushion two laps later and allowed Scott to regain the position.

Thornton again got by Scott on lap 48 which saw the final caution come out to set up a two-lap, green-white-checkered dash to the finish.

While Thornton cruised the final two laps to register the victory, 10th-starting Zack VanderBeek nudged in front of Scott to take the runner-up position while Joe Duvall, who started 15th, wrestled fourth away from Dillard in the final two laps.

Fuqua rolled the top side to beat Dillard to the finish line for fifth, Tyler Wolff snagged seventh, Kyle Prauner earned an eighth-place paycheck in his USMTS debut with fellow Nebraska racer Mike Densberger ninth and Sanders rounding out the top 10.

Thornton took a $3,000 payoff back to the Gressel Racing pit for his fourth triumph of the 2017 campaign.

Kicking off a great day of racing action the John Brown Construction Kids Mods would pull onto the track gaining both important seat time and useful practice as these young up and coming drivers would go through the paces.   Heat race winner Laine Grenier #25 would see the checkers first in a caution free feature, where he would lead every lap on his way to the win.  DJ Barnes #5dj, in a great show of sportsmanship and wanting to race, would be underpowered driving his sport compact but manage to stay out of trouble and on the lead lap to place second.

Next to try to tame “The Cage” would be the Hobby Stocks with Bill Munsen #19 earning the top spot.  Munsen lead early until a mid race miscue would send him to the rear only to drive his way back to the front and onto the win.  Lester Town #32 would drive with patience and precision staying out of harm’s way to place second.  James Wagner #22 would be breaking in a new car and place an impressive third.  Heat race winner Chris Christofferson #17c and John Christofferson #55b would challenge for the lead until a late race mishap would take the both from contention with Chris placing fourth and John fifth.

Continuing the close racing the Street Stocks would take to the track next and did not disappoint any in attendance.  With three wide side by side action throughout the feature and over three lead changes in just the final couple laps, no one would know who the victor would be until the very end.  Pole sitter Brad Whitney #x9 would use a low line move to perfection to earn the top spot by mear feet.  Whitney would be challenged every step of the way by second place finisher Tony Hardisty #0 as well as Alvie Christofferson #22a, who placed third.  Brandon Crockett #98 would be the hard charger coming from a shotgun starting spot to place fourth.  Heat race winner Chuck Ziolkowski #5z would round out the features top five.

Bowers Jr Wins Opening Night IMCA Modified Race at Atchison County Raceway

May 7th, 2016

With a touching tribute to those we have lost over the past year, our Parade of Remembrance was a spectacular site and moving ceremony!

First to take to the track on opening night at Atchison County Raceway were John Brown Construction Kids Mods. Don’t let the name fool you as these young up and comers put on a show in both heat race and feature event.

Tobin Bartlett #28 would take the early lead until Alex Boyden #4d would mount a charge to the front and wrestle the lead and appear to be the car to beat. Coming off turn 4 Boyden would slip slightly and allow Bartlett the high side and the two would race to a photo finish at the line.

Heat race winner Billy Spilman #63 was a contender all feature leading laps and showing muscle finishing a close second. Matt Dorssom #3d would recover from early race mishaps to place third with Matthew Lance #12x fourth. Randy Smith Jr #20x would end the night with a solid top five finish. Other heat race winner was Kyle Henning #1 whom would have contact taking him from win contention.

IMCA Stock Car would see the best of the best take to the track with many different leaders throughout the race. Tag Team Challenge Winner Greg Keuhn #6x would take the early lead with Jim Powell #20p knocking on the door until Brad Whitney #X9 would enter the picture. Heat race winner Whitney would use the high line to pass Kuehn and pull out to a nice lead until hitting the birm in turn two and spinning out taking him from the front spot. Powell would then take over the lead and race side by side with Rich Boyden #4u to the checkers with Powell picking up the feature win.

Brill bags first Out-Pace USRA B-Mod win in Iron Man Challenge Cage Match

April 27th, 2016

ATCHISON, Kan. — Cody Brill used a late-race pass of race-long leader Mike Tanner, and paced the final five laps to score his first Out-Pace USRA B-Mod win in Iron Man Challenge competition Sunday night at the Atchison County Raceway.

The win was worth $600 to the Harrisonville, Mo., youngster as he held off Yancy Shepard for top honors.

Jay Purkey finished third, Cole Denner came from ninth to fourth in the 20-lapper and Doug Keller rounded out the top five.

Andy Bryant, finished eighth after winning Saturday’s feature at the Randolph County Raceway in Moberly, Mo., continues atop the Iron Man Challenge Out-Pace USRA B-Mod points with a 23-point cushion (563 to 540) over Shepard. Tanner is third with 505 markers, followed by Denner (493) and Jared Timmerman (491).

The Iron Man Challenge will go into hibernation for one month as drivers get ready for four big events over the Memorial Day Weekend that will feature both the Holley USRA Stock Cars and Out-Pace USRA B-Mods sharing the spotlight with the United States Modified Touring Series.

On Wednesday, May 25, the Crawford County Speedway in Denison, Iowa, hosts the Iron Man Challenge, and then the legendary Mason City Motor Speedway in Mason City, Iowa, will be the venue on Thursday, May 26. After a day off, action picks back up on Saturday, May 28, at the Deer Creek Speedway in Spring Valley, Minn., before wrapping up the swing at the Upper Iowa Speedway in Decorah, Iowa, on Sunday, May 29.

Dillard escapes “The Cage” with USMTS loot

April 27th, 2016

ATCHISON, Kan. — Cade Dillard of Robeline, La., found the Atchison County Raceway to his liking Sunday night, picking up his third career USMTS win in the series first-ever trip to “The Cage.”

After scoring the most passing points in qualifying and a one-hour rain delay, Dillard redrew the pole position for the 52-lap main event and led every circuit despite constant pressure from Jason Hughes and a seemingly endless sward of lapped traffic on the high-banked 1/5-mile dirt oval.

“This is one fun little track,” the 2014 USMTS Rookie of the Year said in Widow Wax Victory Lane. “It races a lot faster and wider than you’d think, and you can’t lose your concentration for a second.”

After fighting off multiple challenges from Rodney Sanders early and Hughes for the bulk of the race, the 24-year-old finally began to distance himself from his chasers over the final ten laps but a caution on the white flag lap for a stray driveshaft delayed his victory celebration.

“Man, I was cussing (Todd) Staley when that yellow came out on the last lap,” Dillard added. “it wouldn’t have been the first time this year that a late yellow cost us one, but it feels really good to get a win. We needed it.”

Any shot that Hughes had at knocking off Dillard was dashed when 21st-starting Daniel Hilsabeck started on the inside of Hughes for the green-white-checkered finish.

Hughes had his focus taken away in his battle to hang on to second over KSE Racing Products Hard Charger Hilsabeck while Dillard drove off to collect the $3,000 winner’s check.

Sanders held on for fourth with Jesse Sobbing, Dereck Ramirez, Ricky Thornton Jr., 15th-starting Lance Town, Joe Duvall and rookie contender Cody Bauman.

Hughes continues to hold down the points lead in the MSD Central Region presented by Day Motor Sports. He leads Sobbing by 42 markers (382 to 340), followed by Sanders (330), Dillard (328) and Ramirez (312) in the top five.

The focus shifts to the Production Jars Southern Region next week with a tripleheader of $3,000-to-win contests in the Lone Star State.

On Thursday, April 28, the USMTS invades the Superbowl Speedway in Greenville, Texas, for the 2nd Annual North Texas Nationals. Friday, April 29, finds the fire-breathing fighter pilots at the Kennedale Speedway Park in Kennedale, Texas, before wrapping up the swing on Saturday, April 30, with the 3rd Annual Uproar in Kilgore at the Lonestar Speedway in Kilgore, Texas.

Grabouski and Keuhn Big Winners at Atchison County Raceway!!!!!!

April 19th, 2016

With teams set and the track smooth and fast, IMCA Stock Cars would enter the Cage known as Atchison County Raceway to do battle. Heat race winner Jim Powell Jr would battle early for the lead against his tag team partner Gerald Wahwahsuck #11w as they would swap the front spot many times. Powell would finally gain the advantage and appear to be the car to beat until Greg Keuhn #6x would make the inside line work and take over the lead moving past Powell and on to victory. Keuhn would be challenged late by a fast #22 of Matt Haid who would finish a very close and impressive second on the evening. Powell would fade late and settle for third as his partner Wahwahsuck would have mechanical problems and exit the track. Other heat race winner and tag team partner of Keuhn, Brad Whitney #x9 placed fourth after recovering from an early race spin. Marvin Griffith Jr #75m would race through the pack to round out the nights top five. Winners of the Tag Team IMCA Stock Car Challenge were Greg Keuhn and Brad Whitney whom placed first and fourth respectively.

IMCA Modifieds would charge to the track next with a locked and loaded field promising great racing action and did not disappoint. Heat race winner Jorden Grabouski #30g would use a front row starting position to take the early lead with other heat race winner Steven Bowers Jr #77 in close pursuit. Bowers would try Grabouski early and often as the two would battle for the lead inside the Cage. Grabouski would not shake or give and inch as he raced to the win in his first ever visit to Atchison County Raceway. Bowers would end the night second with the big mover of the feature Jeremy Chambers #17 racing his way through traffic to place third. Hall of Famer Tom Charles #81 would make late race moves to propel him to a fourth place finish with Clay Hale #22h finding the groove and rounding out the nights top five as the great night of racing action closed. With Bowers Jr placing second and his Tag Team Partner Tom Charles placing fourth they would win the bonus and claim the Tag Team Title in IMCA Modifieds.

Atchison County Raceway would like to thank drivers and fans alike for their support and ask that all spread the word on great racing action inside the Cage. In Victory Lane Interviews Jordan Grabouski had nothing but good things to say about the smooth fast speedway and the excellent facility. So come on out and let’s have some fun at Atchison County Raceway this 2016 racing season.

If you don’t show to race on a given night understand that your stall can be used by someone else. If you reserved a stall last year and didn’t race here 75% of the time you may not be eligible for that stall. One will likely be available but it will not necessarily be the one you had last year. Case by case basis. Next year it will be straight up 75% period. We hate to be so hard lined about this but there are some coveted spots that some hold yet rarely race here. Racers who chose to race here weekly should have a chance at those spots. There will be three things we will be discussing and voting on Saturday as well. The first is a tire changing lane on the infield. Second is should a car that got dumped at no fault of his own get to keep his spot. Third is should we only count 19 points races out of 20.

This would allow a person to miss or have a bad night and throw that race out. This may not apply to the IMCA classes but it would to the other non-sanctioned classes. No need to debate it here, show up on Saturday and have your voice heard. One vote per registered driver that is “present” at the meeting. Refreshments will be served!!!!!!!
See you Saturday!!!!!!!!

Last Chance to See Great Racing at I-35 Speedway This 2015 Racing Season!!!!!!

October 27th, 2015

Last chance! Last chance to see the I-35 Speedway drivers in action before the 2015 race season comes to a close. Last chance to earn those all-important national points in the USRA A Mods, B Mods, and Stock Cars. After the 2nd Annual National was completed last week the points battles nationally shape up for some great end of season racing. How many of these national drivers will end up at I-35 Speedway on Saturday evening, October 24? Be with us to find out!!!

The A Mods have experienced a leader change as Jacob Gallardo has overtaken Terry Schultz. Schultz from Sedalia Missouri has led most of the year. Gallardo will be competing in New Mexico at his home track. Robbie Reed, an I-35 Speedway late season regular sits in fourth, Matt Dotson sits in eighth, and track champion Dennis Elliott is in 12th. By competing this weekend at I-35 Speedway any of these drivers will have the opportunity to overtake positions ahead of them.

The B Mods have been led by early season I-35 Speedway winner Andy Bryant and he takes a commanding lead into the final weekend of point battles. Track Champion Tim Eaton sits 16th in the national points. Several local drivers could be in competition also looking to move up their national positions including Dakota Foster, 9th in national points, Shadren Turner 12th in National Points, and Chad Clancy who sits 6th in national points.

The USRA Stock Car class could be just as interesting as Mitch Hovden leads the way; however sitting in second is Brett Heeter, a local racer who has competed at I-35 Speedway this season. Track Champion Dean Wray is fourth in the national point battle. Other local racers in the national point’s battle include Thomas Roberts in 12th, Jeff Dixon in 16th, and Jon Boller in 18th.

Along with these national point battles, track championships will be decided in the Grand National and Hobby Stock classes. So don’t miss out on your last chance to see local dirt track racing as we complete the 2015 racing season. Remember to wear your favorite Halloween Costume as we will have a contest for adults and kids at Intermission with prizes to the winners! We have a lot of special events happening this Saturday Night at I-35 Speedway so mark the calendar and make those plans now to be there for all the family fun and racing entertainment.

Simpson, Warman, and Smoot all Winners at Atchison County Raceway!

October 19th, 2015

Kicking off the night’s great racing action Sport Compacts would race forwards and backwards to the checkers. The four contenders would have to race from the flag stand to the line on the backstretch, then, shift into reverse and race backwards to the flag stand with the first to win two races in this manner declared the victor. In a first feature Chuck Warman #03 would over shoot the runway on the back straight but recover to take the first checker flag to wave. Feature number two would see Josiah Birkinsha #7s, who was faster in reverse than forward, beat sister Philisa #7sis to the line and the win. With everything on the line, feature number three would determine the game, match, and set as Chuck Warman would time the shift from forward to reverse perfectly and back his way to victory and the overall winner!

The quads would take to the track next and see a familiar face in victory lane as Josh Smoot #226 would lead every lap and take the win. Smoot was challenged every lap by a very fast Bobby Mayord #44 who would go on to place second. Dustin Savard #007 would capture fourth place as James Shaw #586 would finish fourth. Dan Shively would suffer a nasty roll over in turn #4 of his heat race preventing him from racing the feature event.

Next onto the track came the smash, crash and Cageman Series racing action with the trailers in tow. As the gladiators entered the cage only two points would separate leader Brad Simpson #30 and Cameron Seager #62 when the battle got underway. Cameron would charge to the early lead and appear to be on his way until he would jump a boat and trailer on the back straight and bring his night to an early end losing power unable to continue. Brian Seever #14 would take over the point and race the high line to perfection until Simpson would charge past on the inside and pull away briefly. Contact on the back straight between Simpson and Brandon Leach #06 would slow Simpson enough for Seever to move back ahead. Seever would lead the next few circuits of this 30 lap feature until Simpson would again mount a charge back around to the front with trailer still attached. Simpson would not falter this time and take the win and the point title on this night of racing. Brad Simpson was crowned 2015 Cageman Track Champion. Second place belonged to Brian Seever with Mark Seever #14b third. Adam Housh #4 was fourth place finisher as Jace Prater #22 would round out the nights top five.

Intermission would see Father and Son battle it out in a Demo Derby in the infield as Tom Bartlett and Tobin Bartlett would dash and crash. Tobin would get the advantage on this night and be the winner of the derby finally crash his car on a series of jumps coming to an abrupt stop.

Atchison County Raceway would like to thank all our fans and drivers for their support this 2015 racing season. See everyone in 2016 for a new and exciting racing adventure!
Don’t be Afraid of the Cage!!!!

As we head into the final night of competition 10/16/2015 at Atchison County Raceway the Cageman Series will crown their Champion. The always entertaining and exciting Trailer Smash will be the last race of the season and promises to be a good one as Brad Simpson #30 holds a narrow point lead over Cameron Seager #62 heading into the nights feature event. Last Cageman race Gerald Wahwahsuck slipped in and picked up the win in the War Pony #11w, will he add the trailer hitch and try to capture the win and play spoiler again this week? We have had four different winners in the Cageman Series this 2015 racing season with Seager capturing the most with four victories.

Still wanting more, we got you covered with a Forward/Backward Sport Compact Race! The drivers will start at the flag stand and race to the back stretch marker, stop, shift into reverse and race backwards to the flag stand! Excitement like no other in the Cage!

Still needing more, let’s watch the quads take to the 1/5th mile and race their way to the checkers. Can Josh Smoot #226 continue his winning ways or will another rider step up to challenge. You need to be there to find out!!!!

Powder Puff and Mechanics race Filled with Fun and Surprises at Atchison County Raceway!!

October 15th, 2015

As the ladies entered the Cage the air was filled with excitement to see who would be the winner of each class of competitors. They proved they could wheel a race car with the best of them as they put the hammer down and flew around the 1/5th mile of dirt. Marissa Armontrout #63 would take the early lead from Paige Boos and appear to be on her way to the checkers until Cassy Kelly would race to the front in car #7s. Kelly would take the lead and the overall checkers in the E-Modified Class with Armontrout winning the Street Stock Division with Michelle Henery #7s second. Racing in the Hobby Stock Class Paige Boos would see the checkers and claim the first place trophy with all of them screaming “Girl Power” loud and clear.

The Mechanics would go behind the wheel for their chance after turning wrenches all year for the regular drivers. E-Modifieds would see a great battle as Steve Henning #1 would charge to the lead until a turn two slip would cost him and turn the lead over to Corky Clem #23. Clem would not look back and race on to victory with Henning second and Allen Staley #7s finishing third. Stock Car and Hobby Stock combined would see Brad Spilman #63 pace the field and on to the win collecting the Stock Car first place trophy as Jacob Stephens #7s would finish a close second. Tony Chew proved to be the top runner for the Hobby Stocks as he was the first in class to see the checkers and the win. B-Modifieds would roar to the Cage and not disappoint as Ryan Henning #1 would rise to the top and claim the win but was challenged by contender and second place finisher Todd Brill #82 every lap. Tyler Wood #96.7 would hold off the late race charge of Larry Paige #33 to place third leaving Paige to fourth.

The Four Wheeler Pro Series would tackle the track with Josh Smoot #226 setting the standard and picking up the feature win. Bobby Mayord #44 and Dustin Savard #007 would challenge with Mayord second and Dustin Savard third.

Championship Night at Atchison County Raceway

October 5th, 2015

A great night of racing action was started with the always exciting E-Modifieds taking to the cage for competition. With point leader Chris Dishong #41 starting deep in the pack, Kit Bailey #77 would take the early lead and appear to be on his way until a late race caution would again bunch the field. On the restart Bailey would break something in the steering of his race car and Dishong would take charge and on to victory giving him both the race win and the 2015 Atchison County Raceway Track Championship. Dishong would sweep the night winning his heat race, feature event, and point title ending his season on the highest note possible. Other heat race winner Billy Spilman #63 would race his way to a solid second place showing with Nicholas Carpenter #33 third. Corey Myers #15 would recover from an early race mishap to place fourth with Casey Burnett #23b ending the night fifth. Again, your 2015 E-Modified Tack Champion #41 Chris “Rowdy” Dishong!

Hobby Stock was next to try and tame the fast 1/5th mile of dirt with heat race winner Joshua Munsen #19 using that momentum to propel him to the front and on to victory. Munsen would come from deep in the field to run down the leaders and charge by claiming the night’s top spot and 2015 Track Championship. Kyle Rowland #5 was the big mover and shaker of the race as he would climb to second place on the night with Lonnie Myers #62 finishing third. Other heat race winner Lane Chew #37 would again impress in this his rookie season notching a solid fourth with Rick Thompson #20t rounding out the nights top five. Your 2015 Hobby Stock Atchison County Raceway Track Champion is #19 Josh “Magic Man” Munsen!

Street Stock was low in number but high in quality as they screamed to the track. Brandon Crockett #98 would sweep the night winning both heat race and feature claiming not only the win but also the 2015 Track Championship. Crockett would lead every lap of the feature and on to victory leaving Gerald Wahwahsuck #11w to place second. Rich Boyden #4u would finish third with Lonnie Myers #62, pulling double duty on the night, fourth. Josiah Birkinsha #7si was in contention early until mechanical issues would force him from the track and out of the race to finish fifth. Our 2015 Atchison County Raceway Track Champion Street Stock is Brandon “The Rocket” Crockett #98!

B-Modifieds would not disappoint as they entered the cage to do battle. Heat race winner Cody Brill #96 would hold off all challengers and pick up the feature win as Curtis Dreasher #C4 would challenge late and finish a close second place. Arron Myers #14 would have another solid run with a third place finish as Matthew Lance #12x, back in a B-Mod, would finish fourth. Chance Hug #7H would race to a fifth place finish on the night. Other heat race winner was Austin Charles #81x. Atchison County Raceway 2015 B-Modified Track Champion is Cody “The Thrill” Brill #96!

Kids Mods would take to the track three strong and give us a glimpse of what the future drivers of our sport will hold. Heat race winner Cole Wayman #18 would take the early lead and never relinquish as he would see the checkers first on this night to claim his second win of the 2015 racing season. Cade Richards #1R would challenge Wayman early but fade in the later stages and place second with Dakota Earls #15E coming home a close third. Winning the 2015 Kids Mod Atchison County Raceway Track Championship is “Nitro” Nicholas Carpenter #33!

Sport Compact would see great racing action throughout the pack as Will Guthrie #78 would take the early lead and appear to be the car to beat until a late race caution would bunch the field. In the closing laps heat race winner John Willard #1/2cr would use the low line to pass Guthrie and claim the win. Guthrie would finish second with other heat race winner Barry Luthi #66b placing a solid third. William Wells #90 would be in contention the entire race finishing fourth with David Miller III ending the night fifth. 2015 Atchison County Raceway Sport Compact Track Champion for the second year in a row is “Greased Lightning” James Lemke #17!

Ending the nights racing action the Cageman Series would race the obstacle course with trees, gas grill, tires, barrels, and a few track officials in their way. When the smoke and chaos ended and the checkers fell, Gerald Wahwahsuck #11w would stand tall in victory lane. Wahwahsuck would clip a few trees, dodge a barrel or two and charge out front and on to the win. Current point leader Brad Simpson #30 would battle most of the race side by side with Cameron Seager #62 with Simpson placing second and Seager third. Brandon Leach #06, in the old pickup truck, would make sure all us on the infield had good reflexes as he would fly through the infield and on to a fourth place finish. Pete Koch #4 would again notch a consistent fifth place finish. Voted Best in Show on the night by our track officials, the finishing position #1 was drawn giving the added money to Gerald Wahwahsuck. Cageman series will crown their 2015 Champion in two weeks at the conclusion of the Trailer Smash Race.

Atchison County Raceway would like to congratulate all our winners and 2015 Track Champions. See everyone next week for the Quad Races, Powder Puff Races and Mechanic Races.

We will have a special 50/50 drawing with half the money going to The Down Syndrome Guild of Greater Kansas City and the other half to a lucky fan. Please take the time to read the following information written by Scorer and Track Worker Barb Chapman on Down Syndrome and the great cause the money will support.

One in every 800 babies born is diagnosed with Down Syndrome, also known as Trisomy 21, which means the baby is born with an extra chromosome. In 2011 a little Superman Cole, was born and his parents were given this diagnosis. After some research they found out this could mean many different things. Each diagnosis can present itself with any combination of issues such as intellectual disabilities, physical growth delays, leukemia, and many more. At 7 days old we found out not only did Cole have Down Syndrome but he also had 2 holes in his heart. At 9 months old he underwent open heart surgery at Children’s Mercy Hospital to close the holes in his heart. This is one of several surgeries Cole would undergo before he was 2 years old.

Individuals with Down Syndrome have more hurdles than typically developing people which is why each year events are held like the Step Up For Down Syndrome Walk to raise money for The Down Syndrome Guild of Greater Kansas City. This is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to serving families and educators with needed resources. Each year since Cole was born we’ve had a team at the walk. All money raised for our team “Cole’s Camp” goes to the DSG of Kansas City to help them continue to support our families through the extra struggles an extra chromosome can present. Half of the money from tonight’s 50/50 will go to DSG of Kansas City.

Cageman Series a Rolling Success at Atchison County Raceway!

September 12th, 2015

After a very moving salute to all the fallen from 9/11/2001 as all drivers circled the track we were ready for the gladiators to enter the cage. E-Modified would roar into action with great side by side racing action to the checkers. Billy Spilman #63 would charge to the lead and not look back as he would pick up feature number two on the year in the E-Modified Division. Spilman was challenged every lap by point leader and heat race winner Chris Dishong #41 who would come up a little short and place second. Third place was in question until the checkers fell with Paul Lanfermann II #16g claiming the spot moving Kyle Henning #1 to place fourth. Corey Myers #15 would round out the nights top five.

Hobby Stock would not disappoint as heat race winner Joshua Munsen #19 would work his way through traffic and add to his point lead winning the nights feature event. Lane Chew #37 was the big mover and shaker of the race coming from back to the front to place second as Wayne Brooke #18 would capture third. One time leaders’ #20t of Rick Thompson and heat race winner Lonnie Myers #62 would battle to the line with Thompson fourth and Myers fifth.

As we have come to expect at Atchison County Raceway the Street Stock would race side by side and wheel to wheel from start to finish of their feature. Heat race winner Marvin Griffith Jr #75m and Alvie Christofferson #22a would put on a spectacle of driving skill as they would go side by side from start of the race to the end with Griffith edging Christofferson for the win. The two would swap the lead many times to the checkers as Christofferson was a close second. Gerald Wahwahsuck #11w would end the night a solid third with Anthony Robertson #82m fourth. Current point leader Brandon Crockett #98 would again notch an impressive fifth place showing. Street stock was deemed Best in Show on this night of racing action and the fourth place finishing position drawn with Anthony Robertson collecting the extra cash.

B-modified would charge to the tack and see a new winner on the night as Kelly Kneisler #0k would stand tall in victory lane. Kneisler would lead every lap challenged by second place finisher and heat race winner Curtis Dreasher #C4 and Cody Brill #96 who would end the night third. Tyson Lanfermann #47 would recover from an early race miscue and race his way back to fourth with Aaron Myers #14 fifth.

Kids Mod would see Cole Wayman #18 pick up the Team Christofferson winner’s trophy in victory lane on the night of racing.

The always exciting Sport Compact were next to try and tame the cage as heat race winner John Willard #1/2cr would come from back to front after an early race mishap to claim the win. Point leader James Lemke #17 would march to the front and challenge Willard but be forced to settle for second. Josh Conrad and Barry Luthi would go back and forth until Conrad’s #08 would take third and Luthi’s #66b would come home fourth. Will Guthrie #78 would finish a solid fifth as other heat race winner Dusty Baker would develop problems and force him from contention.

Let the Cageman Series roll into the cage for their Flagpole competition! Racing was hot and heavy throughout the Flagpole race as no one could break away from the pack and take a clear advantage. Pete Koch #4 looked like the car to beat until contact with he and third place finisher Brad Simpson #30 would turn the lead over to Cameron Seager #62. Seager and Koch would battle tooth and nail until #06 of Brandon Leach would roll his pickup truck rounding the flagpole and bring pout the red flag. Leach and passenger both emerged unhurt from the wreckage and the race would continue. As the laps wound down Seager would pull away and on to victory capturing his third win on the 2015 racing season. One time leader Koch would finish second, Simpson third and Leach fourth.

Intermission action would see Paul Lanfermann Sr hold off Son, Paul Lanfermann II and Grandson, Tyson Lanfermann to get the win in the first ever Lanferdash. Special thanks to this family for putting on a great show. Atchison County Raceway would like to thank Jeremy Larabee and Team Turtle for all the headbands and goodies for the kids.

Munsen would use poise and patients working traffic to perfection and on to victory. Wayne Brooke #18 would try to run down Munsen to no avail and finish second with Alex Boyden #4D placing third. One time leader Rick Thompson #20T would fade late to place fourth with Steven Bunton 1/2s fifth. Heat race winner was George Bruning #B5.

Street Stock, as usual, would put on a great performance with Brandon Crockett #98 charging to a commanding lead early. With great racing throughout the pack, Crockett’s lead would start to diminish as Alvie Christofferson #22A would start his charge to the front bringing Anthony Robertson #82m right along with him. An early race collision in turn #4 would end heat race winner Marvin Griffith Jr’s feature as the #75m would have to retire to the pits. Also involved was Gerald Wahwahsuck, back with the familiar #11w, who would recover to make a run at the front. With laps winding down, Crockett would break a gear in the #98 but still maintain the lead and claim the checkers. Wahwahsuck would use the high line to perfection passing both Robertson and Christofferson to place second. Christofferson would finish third and Robertson fourth with a photo finish at the line. Rich Boyden #4U would end the night with a fifth place showing.

B-Modified was definitely the “Best in Show” on this night of racing action as you could throw a blanket over the pack as they raced so close. Heat race winner Curtis Dreasher #C4 would take the early lead and appear to be on his way until midway through the feature. Ethan Isaacs #66 would work high then low trying to find the fast line around Dreasher. The two would swap the lead on several occasions until Isaacs would take the lead for good and on to victory circle. This is Isaacs second feature win in as many trips to Atchison County Raceway this 2015 racing season. Dreasher would place second with the always fast Cody Brill #96 third. Aaron Myers #14 was in the hunt all race and finish fourth with Dustin Thulin #45 rounding out the nights top five. Position #7 was drawn for the best in show with Matthew Lance #12x picking up the added money.

Kids Mods would enter the Cage four strong and see very competitive racing. With contact as they entered turn #2, Eddie Ingram Jr #54 and heat race winner Nicholas Carpenter #33 would have to tag their cars to the rear of the field. As the race restarted Dakota Earls #15e and Cole Wayman #18 would battle for the lead until Wayman would get loose in in turns one and two as Earls would not look back and on to victory. Wayman would place a close second with Carpenter third. Ingram would give it a good run and place fifth.

Sport Compact would race to the 1/5th mile of dirt and put on a show to be enjoyed by all. Will Guthrie #78 would jump to the early lead and have all competitors covered until the last turn of the last lap when the steering wheel would come off forcing him in the infield and out of the race. Heat race winner John Willard 1/2cr was in the right place at the right time and would pick up the win. Other heat race winner and point leader James Lemke #17 would finish a close second with Josh Conrad #08 third. Barry Luthi #66B would show patients as he would recover from an early race mishap and finish fourth. Leroy Wagner #24L in the Scooby Doo special would end the night in fifth place.

During Intermission the “Power Wheels” race for the kids was fast and competitive. When the smoke settled and the checkers fell, Kaylin Cordur #99 was standing tall in Victory Circle! All participants received a trophy for their efforts and fun had by all. Atchison County Raceway would like to thank all our drivers and fans for another great night of racing action.

The Stars Shine Bright at Atchison County Raceway

August 22nd, 2015

Kicking off the night of fun filled exciting racing action were the always fast E-Modifieds. Young Nicholas Carpenter #33 would jump to the early lead and set the pace for the rest to follow as he and heat race winner Matthew Lance #12x would battle for the front. Lance would try high and low but could not find a way around until a late race caution would bunch the field. On the restart the racing was hot and heavy as Chris Dishong #41 would charge past the two front runners and never look back, claiming victory number eight on the 2015 racing season. Carpenter would challenge Dishong every lap to the finish coming up a little short and placing second on the night. Lance would race his way to third with Justin Asher #74 fourth. Back to the track, last year’s E-Mod Track Champion Kit Bailey #77 would round out the nights top five. Other heat race winners were Kyle Henning #1 and Matt Dorssom #3d.

Hobby Stock was in fine form taking to the cage next and putting on a great show for the fans. Wayne Brooke #18 would lead early holding off the challenges of Lonnie Myers #62 as the two would race side by side lap after lap. As these two battled for the lead another contender would emerge and make his move at the right time and charge to the lead with one lap left in the feature. Josh Munsen #19 would again work his magic late in the race and pick up the feature win. Brooke would slip to second with the very fast Myers third. Heat race winner Tobin Bartlett #28 would hold off the challenge of Chris Kiehl #28k to finish fourth with Kiehl fifth.

Munsen #19 and Brooke #18 Wheel to Wheel at the Checkers!!

Great racing action continued as the Street Stocks would enter the Cage and do battle. Anthony Robertson #82m would use an outside row one starting position to his advantage and never look back leading every lap of the feature as the race would go caution free. Robertson would stand tall in victory lane with his family and celebrate the win. Current point leader Brandon Crockett #98 would race his way to finish second holding Daniel King #24k to place third. Heat race winner Alvie Christofferson #22a would finish fourth holding off the hard charge of Brad Whitney #X9 whom would finish fifth on the night.

B-Modifieds would take the cage by storm as we would witness two and three wide racing on the fast and smooth high banked surface. Rodney Schweizer #74 and Austin Charles #81 would swap the lead in the early stages of the race with Charles taking over the lead. A mid race caution would bunch the field with contact made on the restart among the front runners with Schweizer taking the point. Schweizer’s lead was short lived as Truman Asher #73 would use the extreme low line to take over the top spot and on to victory. Heat race winner Cody Brill #96 would recover from an early race spin cycle to charge back to a solid second place showing. One time leader Schweizer would fade to third with Aaron Myers #14 finishing in the fourth spot. Tyson Lanfermann #47 would race a borrowed car to a solid fifth place finish. Other heat race winner was Matt Dorssom #3d who would develop mechanical issues taking him for contention.

Kids Mod would see the familiar face of Nicholas Carpenter #33 sweep the night winning both heat race and feature event. Hayden Hinton #36h would finish in the second spot with Dakota Earls #15e third and Cade Richards #1R fourth.

Sport Compact would prove to be the Best in Show on this night at Atchison County Raceway as they would see only one caution. David Miller III #55 would get the early lead and hold off all challengers until the caution flag would fly. On the restart heat race winner John Willard #1/2cr would use the high side and take the lead and the checkers picking up the feature win. James Lemke #17 would also move past Miller and place second with William Wells #90 third. Josh Conrad #08 would hold off other heat race winner Will Guthrie #78 at the line claiming fourth leaving Guthrie to fifth. Being hailed as Best of Show, the 9th finishing position was drawn with Chuck Warman #45c picking up the bonus money.

Cageman Series Obstacle Course racing would complete the night of racing action. With a rolling green flag start the racers charge around the track with Brandon Leach #06 in the F150 pickup truck taking the early lead. When it appeared Leach would be the truck to beat, both front wheels came off the truck ending his night and dreams of victory. Pete Koch #4 would inherit the lead and battle Brad Simpson #30 as the two would go wheel to wheel. Koch would fade with Simpson taking the point. Cameron Seager #62 would spin early in the feature but charge back to the front and have contact with Simpson taking the lead and victory in the Cageman Series Race. Koch would battle back and get by Simpson to place second moving Simpson to third. Current point leader Ryan Chalfant #41 would race his Gran Torino to fourth with Leach fifth.

Great Racing Action in the Cage at Atchison County Raceway!

August 17th, 2015

Getting the great racing action underway in the features was the Jr Sprint driven by Austin Schweizer taking his laps and the first place trophy.

Next to tackle the 1/5th mile of dirt was the always fast and entertaining E-Modifieds with great racing action from start to finish. Nicholas Carpenter #33 would charge to the early lead appearing to be the car to beat until a late race caution would bunch the field and see Carpenter’s lead go away. On the restart Justin Asher #74 would pass Carpenter and take the point and lead the next few circuits until mechanical issues would cause him to slow on the back straight on the final lap collecting the #12x of Matthew Lance allowing the very fast #63 of Billy Spilman to dive by on the inside and on to the checkers. This is Spilman’s first win of the 2015 season in the E-Modified division at Atchison County Raceway. Corey Myers #15 would race his way from the back to the front and finish second with current point leader and heat race winner Chris Dishong #41 third. Anthony Asher #20x would finish the night in fourth with other heat race winner Matt Dorssom #3d, in an E-Modified for the first time at ACR, rounding out the nights top five.

Hobby Stock was big in number and quality as they entered the cage with rookie sensation Lane Chew #37 taking the early lead and setting the pace for the field to follow. As the race progressed heat race winner Kyle Rowland #5 would emerge from the pack and race Chew side by side for many laps with both swapping the lead until Rowland would take over and on to victory for his first win of 2015. Chew would fade to third in the later stages as current point leader Joshua Munsen #19 would come from the back to the front and finish second moving Chew to third. The always fast Cody Satterwhite #23c would hold of the fast late race charge of Conner Masoner #47x to finish fourth with Masoner fifth. Other heat race winner was Jim Masoner #99 who was in the mix until mechanical issues forced him from the race.

Street Stock was low in number but high in quality as they took to the track next. Gerald Wahwahsuck #98W would take off from a front row starting position and use the low line to lead the first few circuits until Jon Boller Jr #20x would find the high side to his liking and take over the lead moving Wahwahsuck to second. Anthony Robertson #82m would also challenge for the lead but to no avail as Wahwahsuck and Boller would battle it out for the win. As the race continued to rage Wahwahsuck would move to the high line and close in on Boller and use a slide job to perfection in turn four and take back the top spot. Boller and Wahwahsuck would race hard to the checkers with Wahwahsuck winning the race and Boller a close second. Heat race winner Brandon Crockett #98 would move from the back to the front and finish third with Robertson fourth and Alvie Christofferson #22a fifth. At the end of the night the Street Stock Class was considered Best in Show and the third finishing position drawn and Brandon Crockett picking up the $100 bonus.

Wahwahsuck #98W and Boller Jr #20x wheel to wheel!

B-Modified kept the great racing action rolling as Truman Asher #73 would again make his way through the pack and see the checkers first in victory lane. Asher would get by the very fast #77 of Doug Keller who would finish second with Cody Brill #96 third. Heat race winner Rodney Schweizer #74 would run a steady and consistent race and come home fourth on this night with Curtis Dreasher #C4 placing a solid fifth. Other heat race winner was Tyson Lanfermann #47.

The future of our sport is in good hand as the Kids Mods took to the track next for their feature action. Dakota Earls #15e and Cade Richards #1r would swap the lead several times in the first few laps until Earls would capitalize and move his car to the front. Newcomer to the track, Madelyn Bruning #89 would find the turn four wall as she went head on into the concrete barrier. Bruning would be unharmed and emerge from the car and finish third on the night. Back up front the two racers would battle it out to the checkers with Earls first and Richards second on the night. We would like to thank Team Christofferson and John Brown Construction for the trophies in the Kids Mod Division.

Sport Compact would bring the night of great racing action to a close as they entered the cage. James Lemke #17 would battle a very fast 1/2cr of John Willard as the two would go door to door for the lead. As the race continued Chris Christofferson #17c would also challenge on the outside until contact between him and Willard would send both drivers to the rear of the field. Lemke would inherit the lead and on to victory seeing the checkers first and winning the feature event. Lemke was challenged late by brother Joshua Conrad #08 who would finish the night second. Heat race winner James Reed 1/2pi would race his way to third with other heat race winner Willard mounting a charge back through the pack to place fourth. Rounding out the nights top five was Chris Lewis #82k with a smooth solid feature race.

“Don’t be Afraid of the Cage”

Atchison County Raceway A Trailer Smashing Cageman Success!!!!!

August 12th, 2015

With cars and trucks with trailers attached entering the pits it was obvious what a great night of action it was going to be at Atchison County Raceway. Before the Cageman Trailer Smash could start, the ladies would take to the track in their Mini Vans to do battle till only one was able to move.

In fine fashion the four Mini Vans smashed, crashed, and started the night of destruction. The “Barbie Van” driven by Barb Chapman #88 appeared to have the upper hand until an ignition problem would force her to the sidelines early. As she sat idle the other three played ring around the “Barbie Van” with Chapman, whom would finish fourth, cheering them on while they smashed away at each other. “Sassy” Cassy Kelley in the #13 grocery getter would challenge “the Dirt Track Darling” Philisa Birkinsha #7sis backing into each other continually until the two would be slammed by “Auntie” Teri Robinson #GUEST. Birkinsha finally abandoned the reverse attack and turned her van into a front assault weapon crashing head on into the Kelley bursting the radiator on the #13 and creating a steam cloud. Kelley would not go quietly as she rebounded and continued to pound away at both the other competitors. Birkinsha would suffer trouble with the rear wheels not turning and would have to submit to the other two and finish third on the night. Kelley and the Nice “Auntie” Teri Robinson would continue to smash their Mini Vans to smithereens. Nice “Auntie” Robinson proved to have a mean streak behind the wheel and would continue to attack with it appearing to be a draw. The two would head nose to nose until the earlier radiator damage would cause Kelley’s van to overheat and it would not restart after stalling. “Sassy” Cassy Kelley would place second as “Auntie” Teri Robinson would claim the victory! Rear view mirrors were left on the vans so hair and makeup could be done before exiting! Thanks to the Ladies for putting on a great show for all the fans in attendance.

Battling it out in the Cage, Trailer Smash Style!

With thirteen Cageman Trailer Smash Competitors vehicles on the track, introductions would let the fans know who would be in what as they entered the cage. As the green flag was displayed by Shawn Wilson the carnage began with Tobin “The Hitman” Bartlett #28 would “Hitting” a lot of fans in the crowd with a stream of water. Dave Cattrell #99 would take the early lead and appear to be on his way until a hard hit would separate car from trailer. Cattrell would have contact with another competitor in the closing laps and roll his #99 ending his night. With Cattrell out, enter the lead #62 of 15 year old Cameron Seager, who would charge through the pack smashing his way to the front. With action so fast and furious, it was hard for scoring to keep up, but they were able to follow the action and Seager, driving a battleship of an Oldsmobile, was declared the winner picking up his second Cageman win of the season. Ryan Chalfant #41 would pilot his Gran Torino through and around other competitors keeping his trailer somewhat in tack finishing second. Pete Koch #4 was in contention the entire race but could not muster enough speed to get by the two leaders and end the night in third. As the field started to falter and the trailers disconnected from the cars, it was obvious why it was named a “Trailer Smash”. “Flying” Brian Seever would bang his way to the front, leaving his trailer wheels on the track but still dragging the remains to a solid fourth place finish. Rounding out the nights top five, current Cageman Point Leader Brad Simpson #30, would muster a fifth place showing and entertain with hard smashes and exciting racing. Other highlights of the action, and there were many, one mini Jeff Gordon car destroyed, a baby momma house destroyed (originally priced at $100, reduced to $25 after the race), fans watered down on lap number one, tires flying off trailers, little sisters playhouse destroyed, one helmet abuse, one ‘79 Camaro into the wall and an unhappy girlfriend (they made up), a Mopala with a rocket that got launched, two little minions that were destroyed, and a whole lot of clean up left for the track owner and great promoter Phil Birkinsha!

A great night at Atchison County Raceway!!! See everyone Friday Night for exciting racing action and family fun. “Don’t be Afraid of the Cage”!

Lance, Brooke, Crockett, Keller, Earls, and Reed Rule “The Cage”

August 10th, 2015

E-Modifieds would kick off yet another great night of racing action continuing the “Fast Friday” series at Atchison County Raceway. Kyle Henning #1 would jump to an early lead and appear to be the top car for this night of racing. Henning and Chris Dishong #41 would battle for the lead for several laps with neither gaining an edge until heat race winner Mathew Lance #12x would use a high side move passing both contenders. Lance would lead the remainder of the laps as he would not be denied the victory. Point leader Dishong would be forced to settle for second place with Henning placing third. Billy Spilman #63 would finish the feature in fourth with big mover Nicholas Carpenter #33 fifth. Other heat race winner was Corey Myers #15 until a flat tire would take him from contention.

Hobby Stocks were next into the cage and not disappoint as the two heat race winners Wayne Brooke #18 and Joshua Munsen #19 would battle to the checkers. Brooke would take the lead early only to see it evaporate in the latter stages as Munsen would race from the back of the back to challenge Brooke at the line. Brooke would not be shaken as he would maintain the lead to the line with Munsen placing second. Brooke would pick up win number three this 2015 racing season. Lonnie Myers #62 continues his moves to the front as he would hold off the fast Lane Chew #37 to finish third with Chew fourth. Darren McCray sporting the black Camaro #13 would race his way to a solid top five finish.

Street Stocks as always were in fine form on the one-fifth mile of dirt, racing side by side and wheel to wheel from start to finish. Point leader Brandon Crockett #98 would take the lead from the start and hold off all challengers on his way to victory lane. Big mover of the race was Marvin Griffith Jr #75m entertaining all in attendance racing through the pack to finish the feature in second place. Heat race winner Alvie Christofferson #22a was also in the hunt for the win only to settle for third on this night. Anthony Robertson #82m and Greg Keuhn #6x would finish fourth and fifth respectively with Robertson edging Keuhn at the line.

Keller and Brill battling to the checkers!!!

Winner of the “Best in Show” for this night of racing action would see the B-Modifieds put on a great display of driving skills. Doug Keller #77 would sweep the night earning wins in both his heat race and the feature. Keller would be challenged every lap by second place finisher Cody Brill #96 and third place finisher Truman Asher #73. Other heat race winner Austin Charles #81x was the big mover of the feature racing his way from a last starting position passing all challengers to end the feature in fourth. Tyson Lanfermann #47 would again show poise and consistency ending the night in fifth place. When the smoke had cleared and the finishing number was drawn, third place finisher Truman Asher would collect the additional $100 bonus.

Kids Mods would see Dakota Earls win both heat race and feature for the night. Nicholas Carpenter #33 would place second.

Ending the night in style going caution free the Sport Compacts would wheel a race to be remembered. Heat race winner James Reed #1/2pi would use that momentum to propel himself to the lead of the feature and on to victory lane. Reed was challenged continually by Will Guthrie #78 who would end the night second and Dusty Young #22 who placed third. Point leader James Lemke #17 would hold off other heat race winner David Miller III #55 as they would battle to the line, with Lemke fourth and Miller fifth.

Stock Car Smackdown Roars into the Cage at Atchison County Raceway

August 5th, 2015

Stock Cars from all over the mid-west came to do battle in the cage with big money on the line for those up to the challenge. As the green flag waived and the drivers dialed up the horsepower on a smooth fast racing surface, Jason Estes #997 would put the Ford Thunderbird out front and appear to have the field in hand as he would lead the first 19 laps until a caution would bunch the field. Estes would be challenged by a very fast #37x driven by Jeff Tubbs as the two would race side by side until Tubbs would pull ahead to lead moving Estes to second. As the raced progressed a new face would appear as a contender as Brad Derry #37D would use the entire track and all his race car had to offer as he worked from deep in the pack toward the front. Derry would battle Jon Boller Jr #20x and the other front runners tooth and nail using the extreme high line to pass both Estes and Tubbs taking over the lead. Derry would not be denied on this night and claim the big check, bragging rights, and the beautiful Victory Trophy. Holding on to second in the battle to the checkers was Jeff Tubbs edging Voo Doo Chassis Hard Charger of the Race Marvin Griffith Jr. #75m, who came from a deep in the field starting position, to finish the night third. Jon Boller Jr and Anthony Robertson would race wheel to wheel and door to door to the line with Boller taking fourth and Robertson #82m rounding out the night’s top five. Heat race winners included Jeff Dixon #88, Jason Estes #997, and Jon Boller Jr #20x.

Also tackling the 1/5th mile of racing dirt, the Hobby Stocks would not disappoint all those in attendance as Tobin Bartlett would show the way to Victory Lane. Bartlett would use a front row starting position and heat race win momentum to lead every lap on his way to win number two for the weekend in the cage. Bartlett would be challenged late by second place finisher Mich Ross #34 who would work his way to the front but not find a way around the fast #28. Lane Chew #37 and Cody Satterwhite were also in the hunt as Chew would place third holding Satterwhite #23c to fourth. Rick Thompson #20T would finish the evenings feature fifth after developing mechanical issues.

Sport Compact would also see action on this great night of racing with the familiar #22 of Dusty Young starting on the pole. Young would win both his heat race and the feature event to pick up the Victory Trophy as he stood tall in the winner’s circle. James Reed #1/2pi would challenge Young but to no avail and be forced to settle for second as David Miller III was third. Other heat race winner Will Guthrie #78 would come home fourth as Joshua Conrad #08 would develop problems and end the night fifth.

Atchison County Raceway would like to thank all the fans and drivers for this great night of racing and fun. Special thanks to Phil Birkinsha for a smooth, wide, and multiple groove racing surface for the cars to compete. We would like to thank all our great sponsors for making the Stock Car Smackdown a success.

Great Green Flag Racing Action in the “Cage” at Atchison County Raceway

July 19th, 2015

On a hot night both on and off the track the Jr Sprints would set the tone for the evening’s great racing action as they would go caution free with Dakota Earls #15E seeing the checkers first. Earls would lead every lap on his way to victory as Austin Schweizer #74 would loop his car in the early stages but fight back to place second on the night.

E-Modifieds would keep the green flag racing going as they too would go caution free in their feature event. Corey Myers would jump to the early lead and set a blistering pace around the three eight’s mile holding off all challengers on his way to victory lane. Myers #15 would be put to the test early by a fast 89k of Colby Kearney who would develop mechanical issues taking him from contention. As the race continued the man on the move was heat race winner Chris Dishing #41who would come through the pack to race Myers to the checkers only to finish second. Matthew Lance #12x would hold off a fast Nicholas Carpenter #33 as they would finish third and fourth respectively. Putting up a smoke screen, Justin Asher #74, would round out the nights top five.

Hobby Stock would keep the theme of no yellow flags going as they too would go green, to white, to checkers on the night. Current point leader and heat race winner Joshua Munsen #19 would work traffic to perfection and claim win number six on the 2015 racing season. The win was not easy for Munsen as he was challenged every lap by the always fast and consistent #5 of Kyle Rowland who would end the night second. Wayne Brooke #18 was the big mover of the race coming through the pack and ending the feature in third. Determined the Best of Show on the night the Hobby Stock finishing position of fourth was drawn and Cody Satterwhite #23c would pick up an additional $100 for his efforts. Fifth place would see Darren McCray #13, who continues to improve weekly, drive a solid and smooth feature. Other heat race winner and front contender George Bruning #B5 would fade in the latter stages of the race and from win contention.

Street Stock was low in number but high in quality as they would keep the string of caution free features going with Brandon Crockett #98 running away and winning both heat race and feature by a large margin. Crockett would lead every lap and never be challenged on his way to victory lane. Great racing ensued behind the leader as Alvie

Christofferson #22a would use the low line to perfection as he would finish the night in second with the always fast Anthony Robertson #82m coming home in third. Daniel King #24k would finish fourth with Marvin Griffith Jr. #75m fifth.

B-Modified would only see the caution twice in their feature as Curtis Dreasher #C4 would pick up win number three at Atchison County Raceway this 2015 racing season. Dreasher would start up front and never relinquish the lead holding the fast #96 of Cody Brill to settle for second. Rodney Schweizer #74 was the big mover driving his way through the pack to a solid third on the night. Last week’s feature winner and “Bicycle Donator”, Matt Dorssom #3d would finish fourth with heat race winner Rick Dreasher #09x fifth.

Sport Compact would put the night back to a caution free feature as they would race to the checkers side by side. Dusty Young #22 would take the early lead and look to be the car to beat until the last turn of the last lap as Joshua Conrad #08 would snatch the victory away from Young and claim the win. Conrad was in contention for the lead the entire feature and would pick up win number one on the season. Heat race winner Will Guthrie #78 would come from the back of the pack and challenge late finishing third on the night. James Reed #1/2pi would place fourth and James Lemke #17 would round out the nights top five.

Fast Friday’s Continue at Atchison County Raceway

July 15th, 2015

Starting off the night’s racing action in great side by side form the always entertaining E-Modifieds as they would attempt to tame “The Cage”. Nicholas Carpenter #33 would use a front row starting spot to gain the early lead and look to be the car to beat until heat race winner Chris Dishong #41 would use a daring high side maneuver to get around the fast Carpenter. Dishong would literally “fly” through turns three and four to take the lead and claim victory number seven of the 2015 racing season. Carpenter would maintain a strong race by placing second with other heat race winner Kyle Henning #1 charging his way through the pack to place third. Fourth place would see Justin Asher #74 edge Billy Spilman at the line, leaving a very fast Spilman #63 to place fifth.

Next onto the fast, near perfect one-fifth mile of dirt were the Hobby Stocks with point leader Joshua Munsen #19 standing tall in victory lane. Munsen would recover from an early race mishap, which would send him to the rear, passing all challengers using the high line to perfection. One time leader and impressive rookie Lane Chew #37 continues his poise and consistency placing second on the evening. Wayne Brooke #18 was also amongst the leaders early only to fade slightly and finish the feature third. Cody Satterwhite #23c and Rex Bruning #44r would battle door to door for the majority of the feature with Satterwhite fourth and Bruning placing fifth. Heat race winners were Tobin Bartlett #28 and George Bruning #B5 who would both develop mechanical problems taking them from contention.

Street Stocks were next onto the track with second time winner Marvin Griffith Jr #75m passing all challengers from a rear starting spot seeing the checkers first. Griffith would race side by side with heat race winner Anthony Robertson #82m for many circuits, never touching, leaving Robertson to place second. Alvie Christofferson #22a would also come from the back of the pack up to the front runners placing an impressive third. Other heat race winner Brandon Crockett #98 and Daniel King #24k would mix paint as they would race door to door to the checkers with Crockett placing fourth and King fifth.

In a caution free feature that was deemed the “Best in Show” for the evenings racing action were the B-Modifieds. Matt Dorssom #3d would launch to the early lead and never look back on his way to claiming the night’s top spot. Dorssom would lead every lap but was challenged late by hard charger and heat race winner Truman Asher #73 who would place second. Jake Richards #7j would challenge for the lead early using an extreme high line only to fade in the latter stages to place third. Rick Dreasher #09x would battle with family member and “Best in Show” money winner Curtis Dreasher #C4 with Rick edging Curtis at the line placing fourth and fifth respectively. Other heat race winner was Austin Charles #81x. Our hats go off to all these great drivers in the B-Modified class for a green to white to checkered exciting feature event.
“Mad Dog” Dorssom B-Modified Feature Winner

We witness our racing future being in good hands as the Kids Mods class would enter “The Cage” next for great racing excitement. Dakota Earls #15e would win the drag race into turns one and two on the start and lead the first half of the feature event. Earls would appear to be the car to beat until contact with lap traffic would flatten a right front tire ending his quest for victory. Heat race winner Nicholas Carpenter #33 would inherit the lead and would race his way to victory lane. Jace Whitt #26 continues to improve by notching a close second place finish. Eddie Ingram Jr #54 would finish third with Shawn Boos #63, who was involved in the early contact, would place fourth with Earls rounding out the night’s top five.

Entering “The Cage” to end the night of great racing action Sport Compact would battle it out. Will Guthrie #78 would use a front row starting spot to battle side by side with heat race winner Dusty Young #22 for lap after lap never touching. Guthrie would gain the advantage half way through the feature and would hold off all challengers on his way to the night’s top spot. Heat race winner James Lemke #17 was the hard charger by coming through the pack to finish second. Joshua Conrad #08 and James Reed #1/2pi would mix it up the entire race with Conrad placing third and Reed fourth. Barry Luthi #66b continues to be smooth and consistent by rounding out the feature’s top five.

Winner of tonight epic three legged race during Intermission activities was Team “Thrill” lead by Cody Brill. The trophy was presented and the winners crowned after post-race inspection and all entrants passed tech. See everyone Tomorrow Night for the Flat Track Motorcycle’s as well as the Tuff Truck Competition. “Don’t be Afraid of The Cage”

Mike Higley Found To Be Legal After Further Investigation

July 9th, 2015

Atchison County Raceway disqualified Mike Higley after he brought the Prime Racing B Mod in 2nd during last Sundays “B Mod Explosion”. His motor was whistled and the result of the whistle was that his motor had too much compression. Mike protested the disqualification and offered to remove and leave his head and gaskets in the possession of ACR so that manual measurements could be taken to assure the accuracy of our claim. Measurements were also taken from cylinders while the block was still at the track that night. Monday morning measurements were taken on the head at our location and it was deemed that in fact the 351 Ford motor is a legal 9.5/1 motor. The most accurate method was used to determine this. We apologize to anybody adversely affected by this but stand on our conviction to get it right at ACR. ACR continues to display its honesty and integrity and its willingness to go the extra mile for those that choose to race here.

Ethan Issacs #66 wins the B-Mod Explosion at Atchison County Raceway

July 8th, 2015

Starting the night off right for the B-Modified explosion were the always entertaining E-Modifieds setting the table for the great racing action in “The Cage”. Heat race winner Justin Asher #74 would take the lead right off the start and never look back on his way to winning the feature. Nicholas Carpenter #33 was the big mover of the race by coming from a rear row starting spot to charge to the front and place second. Corey Myers #15 would be in contention for the lead the majority of the feature only to fade in the latter stages and settle for third. John Brown #36j and Chet Yates #99c would battle door to door, lap after lap, with Brown gaining the advantage placing fourth leaving Yates to fifth. Other heat race winner Mathew Lance #12x would make heavy contact with the front stretch concrete wall taking him from contention.
For the main event of the evening the B-Modifieds would not disappoint with side by side racing throughout the pack. Just as everyone in attendance wanted to see the one-fifth mile of dirt called “The Cage” would again impress all. Doug Keller #77 would set the pace early making the attempt to lead every lap and collect the bonus cash. Keller would slip one time half way through the feature off turn two allowing the fast Ethan Issacs #66 to take the lead. Issacs would not be challeneged on his way to the $2000 pay day. Great racing would ensue behind the leader as Keller, who would end the night second, would hold off the hard charge of Curtis Dreasher #C4 who would go on to place third. Cody Brill #96 would end his charge to the front with a solid fourth place finish. Big mover of the feature was Ron Tex Jr #8x making his presence felt with a great fifth place run. Heat race winners on this great night of racing action were Doug Keller #77, Ethan Issacs #66, Mike Higley #11, Curtis Dreasher #C4, Randall Schiffelbein #11jr, and Josh Most #14x. The top ten in passing points for their heat races were locked into the feature event and two B-features were ran. Both B-Features would see great racing action as the top five would transfer to the A-Main with a hard charger from each also transferring. B-Feature #1 winner was Jay Bailey #20c with B-Feature #2 winner Austin Charles #81.
WINNER WINNER!!!

Atchison County Raceway again proves “The Cage” is the best in racing action. With the gates locked and the cars circling the fans enjoy true racing entertainment. We would like to thank all drivers and fans alike for this special event.

Fast Friday at Atchison County Raceway with Fireworks and Fun

July 5th, 2015

Kicking of the fourth of July weekend of great racing action would see the young driver Austin Schweizer #74 take his laps and pull to victory lane. Schweizer would hold the throttle to the floor his entire race and pick up the first place trophy.

E-Modifieds were in fine form as they would race side by side to the checkers with point leader Chris Dishong claiming win number six on this 2015 racing season. Heat race winner Corey Myers #15 would lead early and appear to be the car to beat until a late race caution would bunch the field and allow Dishong to use the low line to capitalize and capture the win. Myers would finish the night second with Kyle Henning #1 racing his way to third. Justin Asher #74 would again run a good clean race on his way to fourth with the always fast Colby Kearney #89k a close fifth. Other heat race winner was Matthew Lance #12x.

Hobby Stock was next to enter the cage and try and tame the fast 1/5th mile of dirt. Carson Masoner #13x would take the lead early and battle wheel to wheel with Josh Munsen #19 until a mid-race spin would take Masoner from contention and allow Munsen to cruise to victory. Heat race winner Kyle Rowland #5 would again find the cage to his licking and race his way to second. Two time winner on the season Wayne Brooke #18 would end the night third with the big mover of the race Conner Masoner #47x fourth. Chris Kiehl #28k continues to improve weekly and would charge to a solid fifth place finish on the nights feature. Other heat race winner was Lonnie Myers #62.

Street Stock would again put on a show of epic proportion going green white checkered and be the “best in show” on this night. Josiah Birkinsha #7si would jump to the early lead and set the pace until Brandon Crockett #98 would challenge on the high side and gain the advantage. Crockett would not be denied and hold off all challengers picking up his second victory of the year. Marvin Griffith Jr. #75m would charge to the front only to come up a little short and place second with one time leader Birkinsha fading to third. Other heat race winner Jon Boller Jr. #20x would battle both high and low through the pack and come home in the fourth position with last week’s feature winner Alvie Christofferson #22a rounding out the nights top five. Picking up the extra $100, as 7th position was drawn in the best of show class, was Anthony Robertson #82m.

B-Modified would give us a glimpse of what we can expect at Sunday’s B-Mod Explosion as the win was decided by mere inches at the checkered flag. Curtis Dreasher #c4 would search high and low on the track to find a way around leader Cody Brill #96. Dreasher would use the low line to pass Brill on the closing laps only to see a caution move Brill back to the point. As the green was shown to the field the two would battle to the checkers rubbing fenders with Dreasher winning by a bumper at the stripe claiming his second win of the season. Early race leader Brill would have to settle for second with young up and comer Austin Charles #81 in the hunt finishing third. Jayden Bears #20j continues to impress as he would challenge early for the lead and slip once moving him to fourth. Heat race winner Rick Dreasher #09x would end the night fifth. Other heat race winners were Rodney Schweizer #74 and Richard Biggs 52r who was in the hunt early until mechanical issues would force him out of the feature.

Kids Mods would see exciting racing to the checkers with the win not decided until the final lap of competition. Heat race winner Cole Wayman #18 was the early race leader until Dakota Earls #15e would take over mid race and appear to be the car to beat. Wayman would suffer a broken left front spindle but would still manage to take the lead back from Earls who would get into turn two just a little too hot. Coming to the checkers off turn #2 Wayman would spin and allow the then second place contender Eddie Ingram Jr. #54 to pass for the lead and go on to the feature win. Wayman would recover for second with one time leader Earls third. Hayden Hinton #36j would race her way to fourth and Nicholas Carpenter #33 who would develop mechanical problems would place fifth.

Spot Compact would enter the cage and complete the night of great racing action. Newcomer to Atchison County Raceway Kevin Prall #14h would really like the high banks by winning both his heat race and then the feature. Prall was challenged early by James Reed #1/2pi but would not relinquish the lead and race on to victory lane. James Lemke was the big mover of the race coming through the pack to place second with other heat race winner Joshua Conrad #08 third. Early lead contender Reed would fade late and finish fourth with Barry Luthi #66b rounding out the features top five.

Atchison County Raceway would like to thank all the drivers and fans for a great night of racing action. On another great note over $600 was raised for Conner Strong as he fights’ cancer, let’s continue to keep Conner Masoner in our prayers. Hope all enjoyed Igor the Fire Dancer and the great Fireworks display after the races.

We invite everyone back Sunday Night for the B-Mod Explosion that promises to be a spectacular event! Remember “Don’t be afraid of the cage”

Entering “The Cage” first to kick off the Hobby Stock Stampede were the always entertaining and fast Modlites. Taking the lead early from a pole starting spot heat race winner Travis Stensland #89 would look to be the car to beat until lap traffic would play a part in the ending results. Heat race winner Josh May #99 would use a high side pass with lap traffic working as a pick to gain the lead and never relinquish the top spot as he would go on to earn the victory. Stensland would recover from his one miscue to place a solid second with other heat race winner Cory Sauerman #17 in the mix with the leaders the whole race placing third. Ryan Ayers #19 would mount a charge to the front only to come up a few laps short and place fourth. Randy Bryan #64x would also be in fine form rounding out the feature’s top five.

Taking to the one-fifth mile of dirt next for their feature event were the Hobby Stocks with hometown pride Joshua Munsen #19 earning the big payout and beautiful Victory Trophy. Munsen would use heat race win momentum and a front row starting spot to lead every lap on his way to claiming the checkers. Mich Ross #34 would race his way to the front and be in contention for the lead for several laps yet come up short as transmission woes would end his charge for the lead forcing him to settle for second place. Tyler Hinrichs #t25 would also be in the thick of things for the lead early only to fade just a little in the later stages to place third. Big mover of the race was Kyle Rowland #5 as he would pilot his fast hotrod to the front from a seventh row inside starting spot to place fourth. Heat race winner Wayne Brooke #18 would run a near perfect race and place fifth. Other heat race winner was Benjamin Haddox #62h.

We welcome everyone back next week to our Fast Friday series as well as our B-Modified Explosion on Sunday July 5, 2015. Hope everyone enjoyed riding the mechanical bull and the authentic cowboy competition. “Don’t be afraid of the Cage.” See You There!

With a super smooth and fast racing surface the E-Modifieds were the first to enter the cage. Corey Myers #15 would use heat race win momentum to rocket him to the lead and appear to be the car to beat in the feature event. Myers would lead every lap challenged to the checkers by #41 of Chris Dishong. As the flag waved it was Myers standing tall in victory lane holding the fast Dishong to a second place finish. Other heat race winner Matthew Lance #12x would race wheel to wheel with Nicholas Carpenter #33 as these two would swap positions throughout the race with Lance third and Carpenter fourth.

The Stock Car Division would again show great poise and consistency with only one caution in their entire feature. Daniel King #24k would live up to his nickname of the “Wheel Man” racing side by side with Jim Powell Jr. #20p lap after lap to the checkers. King would use a late race caution to take the lead for good winning both the heat race and feature on this night of action.

As the racing continued behind the leader, Curtis Dreasher #C4 would start his charge to the front passing all competitors.

Great Racing Action in the “Cage” at Atchison County Raceway

June 9th, 2015

As the drivers and fans were treated to a beautiful Sunday Night at Atchison County Raceway with clear skies and smooth race track the action would begin.

The Jr. Sprint was the first to tackle the 1/5 mile of dirt as Camden Couch #36JR would take his laps and pull his hot rod to victory lane. Camden would thank his sponsors and show true driver mentality as he said he never lifted the throttle from green flag to checkers. Congratulations Camden on a great run.

The class that started at Atchison County Raceway, E-Modified, would not disappoint with wheel to wheel action from start to finish. With only one caution heat race winner and pole sitter John “The Hammer” Brown #36j would take the early lead and appear to be the car to beat until a late race caution would reset the field. On the drop of the green flag restart “Lightning” would strike as Matthew “Lightning” Lance #12x would jump to the high side and lead the remainder of the circuits to claim the win. Brown would mount a charge but not be able to pass Lance and have to settle for second. Nicholas Carpenter, aka “Chick Magnet”, would prove again to be one of the true up and comers in the sport as he would drive his #33 machine to a solid third place finish. Not to be outdone by the guys, “The Dirt Track Darling” Philisa Birkinsha #7sis, would battle her way to forth with Colby Kearney, recovering from an early race spin, coming home fifth.

With one of the best features on the evening of great racing the Hobby Stocks would not see the yellow and go green to white to checker flag in their race. Heat race winner Lane Chew would set the early pace as his #37 would launch to the lead for the first few laps. Contact and a flat left rear tire would force Chew to the infield ending his race early. “Wild” Wayne Brooke #18 would take over the point and appear to be pulling away until the #4D of Alex Boyden would real Brooke in and dive to the inside on the closing laps. Brooke would use the high line with Boyden low and race to the checkers with Brooke winning the feature by less than a car length. Boyden would be forced to settle for second with Darren Davenport #85 third. Lonnie Myers #62 and Robert Griffith #75R would battle it out to the line with Myers fourth and Griffith fifth.

Street Stock was in fine form on this night of racing as they would not see the yellow flag and go caution free as Brad Derry#37D, using heat race momentum, would take an early lead and never be challenged on his way to victory. Side by side racing would ensue behind winner Derry as Rich Boyden #4U would hold of a very fast Steve Herrick #5k as they would finish second and third respectively. Josiah Birkinsha #7si would battle to the line finishing fourth with Daniel King #24k racing hard to finish fifth. Other heat race winner was Marvin Griffith Jr. #75m who would suffer a flat tire taking him from contention.

B-Modified would charge to the track and see only one caution and a very emotional, happy victory lane as heat race winner Tyson Lanfermann would lead every lap on his way to the night’s top spot. Lanfermann #47 would get the win and celebrate his victory with Father Paul II and Grandfather Paul Sr. proving the racing family tradition. Gerald Wahwahsuck would be forced to start in the back of the feature after heat race problems and would impress and entertain the fans marching his way to the front for a second place finish. Wahwahsuck #110W would battle side by side for almost the entire race with third place finisher Chance Hug #7H with one on the high line and the other using the low line. Hats off to Wahwahsuck and Hug as they battled tooth and nail, wheel to wheel, and never touched proving their great driving skills. Shawn Manning #X52 would race his way to fourth with #27 Jason Lewman fifth.

As the John Brown Construction Kids Mods rolled onto the track, Nicholas Carpenters heat race and feature winning streak stayed in tack as he sailed to victory once again. It wasn’t easy for Carpenter as Cade Richards #1R, who continues to improve each week, would not go away and be in the thick of the battle to the checkers finishing second. Finishing third was first time competitor Shawn Boos #63 after contact with fourth place finisher Hayden Hinton #36H. Dakota Earls #15E would develop problems as he entered the track for the feature and end the night fifth.

In what appears to be a trend the Sport Compact Division would also go caution free with Rookie competitor Will Guthrie #78 winning heat race and feature on the night. John Willard driving the 1/2cr “Underdog” car would race his way to second with the other 1/2pi car of James Reed third. David Miller III #55 would battle it out with other heat race winner James Lemke #17 to the line. Miller would finish fourth holding Lemke to fifth on the night.

We had a little bit of everything for the fans with great racing on the track and “Igor” the Fire Dancer performing during Intermission. Sticking with the best class award, track officials determined the Street Stock Class put on the best show and the finishing position of #1 was drawn. Congratulations to Brad Derry for picking up the $100.

Calling all race fans, drivers and sponsors, get ready for the big event coming up at Atchison County Raceway on Sunday June the 28th as Hobby Stocks will have their day with $1000 to win the feature. We look forward to seeing everyone this Friday Night for the best in racing action, “We’ll be here all Season”!

Other heat race winner was John Willard #1/2crazy.

Not to be outdone by the Hobby Stocks, the Street Stocks would charge into the Cage, and put on a great show as always. With his first visit of 2015 to the high banks of Atchison County Raceway Marvin Griffith Jr. would tame the 1/5th mile and claim the top spot on the night. Griffith #75m would use heat race win momentum and a front row start to lead every lap on his way to the victory holding off the late race charge of second place finisher #5k of Steve Herrick. Big mover of the race was Alvie Christofferson #22a who would start last in the field and race his way to a solid third place finish. Newcomer to the track Chad Walker #04 proved his poise and driving skill as he would notch a fourth place on the night’s feature race. Fifth place finisher on the night would be the always fast and consistent Josiah “The Jet” Birkinsha. Other heat race winner was last week’s feature winner Brandon Crockett #98 who would challenge for the lead early but fade late with damage to his race car.

B-Modifieds rolled into the cage next and prepared for battle as the familiar face of “Mr. President” Truman Asher, who could not be outdone by his son, Justin, who won the E-Modified race earlier, and puts his #73 into victory lane. Asher was never challenged on his way to victory as fierce racing ensued behind the leader for second and third. Curtis Dreasher #C4 and “Mad Dog” Matt Dorssom would battle to the checkers with Dreasher holding onto second and #3d of Dorssom third.

Dakota Earls #15e, in only his second race in a kids mod, would make a late race pass on Cade Richards #1r to take second and move Richards to third. Improving each week “Tack Hammer” Hayden Hinton #36h would have a little mishap on the exit of turn #2 but recover to place fourth. After the feature each Kids Mod driver was not only awarded with a trophy but received $50 cash each for their efforts, a nice gesture form track owner Phil Birkinsha. The trophies for the kids are provided by Brown Construction and Team Christofferson Racing.

Last to round out the nights exciting racing action were the wild, swarming, and bee sounding Sport Compacts.

At the end of the nights racing action the officials make a decision of which class had the best racing action.

Small Car Nationals at Atchison County Raceway

May 29th, 2015

As the action kicked off hot and heavy for the Small Car Nationals at Atchison County Raceway the first to try to tame “The Cage” were the always fast and entertaining Modlites. Pole sitter and heat race winner Travis Alexander #36 would impress all in attendance by finding the one fifth mile of dirt to his liking. Alexander would never need to change his left front tire as it would seldom make contact with the track. Leading nearly every lap Alexander would never look back on his way to the night’s victory.

As the gates were shut and cage was locked a young man, with his sister riding shotgun, would emerge the victors. Cameron Seager #62, with mud grip tires and all, would pace the field getting around the pole in lightning speed and capture the night’s victory. Seager would even stop on the back stretch only to realize the race was in fact not over and have to charge back by second place finisher Ryan Chalfant #41. Brad Simpson #30 would be in the mix for the lead only to fade late due to a flat tire and place third.

I don’t believe you come from that far to finish second!!!!!! This is going to be a great race and one to remember for sure. In order to remember it you must first have to be here!!!!! That not enough????? I am not done yet. Figure 8 bus races with the rookies. That ought to be worth the $12 admission right there. 4 teachers or close to it will be lining up the buses not for a roundy round race. Nope a fig 8 race!!!!!! Looking for one more driver for this one. If we don’t get it I will put a professional derby driver in the fourth bus!!!!!! LOL. We are still not done. If you haven’t seen a flagpole race performed by the Cage-Men then you need to be here. You talk about exciting. The flag pole race is 3 and 4 wide racing with contact permitted!!!!!! All that for only $12. No other track does this. Of course since it is Memorial day weekend we will be have great American “BBQ”. Concessions will feature full plates. Along with

Hayden Hinton #36h would suffer damage to the left front of her race car and be forced to finish fourth.

Bringing the night of great racing action to a close the Sport Compact division would buzz onto the track. Making it two wins in as many weeks, “Greased Lightning” James Lemke would pilot the #17 to victory lane winning both heat race and feature. Dusty young #22 would make a valiant effort to run down Lemke but not have quite enough and have to settle for second.

Bartlett was challeneged every lap by week one winner Josh Munsen #19 who would place a solid second. John Willard #1/2cr would race side by side with Lonnie Myers #62 to the checkers edging Myers at the line to place third and fourth respectively. Veteran racer Wayne Brooke #18 would race through the pack to finish fifth.

In the second Hobby Stock feature event of the evening #1/2cr of John Willard would lead every lap from a front row starting position to claim the top spot. Josh Munsen #19 would race through the pack putting up a great challenge late only to come up a little short and settle for second place. Wayne Brooke #18 would have his hands full battling Darren Davenport #85, with Brooke holding on to finish third while Davenport would settle for fourth place.

Asher was challenged every step of the way by nephew Justin Asher #74 who would place second. The big mover and shaker of the race was Chris Dishong #41 by wheeling his way from the back of the pack to the front contenders only to settle for third. Mathew Lance and Colby Kearney would duke it out until the bitter end with #12x of Lance fourth and #89k of Kearney fifth.

In the first feature of the Street Stocks the familiar face of Alvie Christofferson #22a would emerge as the victor by charging through the pack raking up the nights win.

Tom Smith #9 would use a steady smooth line to place a solid fifth.

For the second Street Stock feature of the evening the drivers would display some of the best racing action anyone would ever witness. Larry Waters #53 and Daniel King #24k would race side by side with Waters high and King low for over eighty percent of the race. One yellow flag would regroup the field and allow a four wide photo finish with Waters standing tall in victory lane. Daniel King would slip ever so slightly in turn four of the last lap and slide to second. Anthony Robertson #82m and Alvie Christofferson #22a would get into the mix at the line charging from turn four towards the checkers with Robertson third edging Christofferson who would place fourth. Josiah Birkinsha #7si continues his consistent ways by notching another top five finish.

Feature number one of the B-Mods would witness Cody Brill #96 rise to the top of the leaderboard and claim victory number one of the 2015 racing season. 2014 Track Champion Rodney Schweizer #74 would show what makes a champion with a solid second place finish.

Sport Compact feature number one would see James Reed #1/2pi pass every car on his way from the back to the front and to victory lane. Josh Conrad #08 would end the night in second with David Miller #55 in third place. Jeremy Larabee would bring his #214 hotrod home in fourth place as James Lemke #17 placed fifth.

Feature number two for the Sport Compacts would witness James Lemke #17 charge to the early lead, never to be challenged as he would pick up the nights win. James Reed #1/2pi was the big mover of the race by charging up to place second as the checkers were shown. Joshua Conrad #08 would log another great finish by placing third with David Miller #55 fourth and Will Guthrie #78 fifth.

Ending the night’s racing events the “Cageman” series has begun with a figure eight style race which was pure entertainment for all in attendance.

Night Two at Atchison County Raceway A Fan Fun Night

April 26th, 2015

Kicking of the nights great racing action saw young Austin Schweizer hit the track with his Jr Sprint and take the winning laps and find victory lane.

The next cars to tackle the fast 1/5th mile under threatening skies were the always fast and entertaining E-Modifieds with last year’s Track Champion Kit Bailey #77 working his way through traffic to claim the nights win. The feature race was halted mid-way through to let a passing shower stop and the event continued. The big mover of the race was #41 of Chris Dishong until mechanical issues brought his night to an end early. Keith Simmons #222 would charge to the back bumper of Bailey but have to settle for second on this night. Matthew Lance and Kyle Henning would go door to door at the checkers with the #12x of Lance third and Henning #1forth. Billy Spilman #63 showed again his poise and consistency finishing a solid top five.

As the Hobby Stocks took to the tack the rains came as a battle for the lead between week one winner Josh Munsen and early leader Tobin Bartlett were side by side at the yellow flag.

Next Friday night will see double features and remember B-Modified will pay $500 to win due to the generosity of Craig Reynolds and Family adding $100 in memory of Bill Reynolds and Phil Birkinsha adding another $100 to the winner’s purse.

Intermission was a blast with kids and adults alike Hula Hooping and dancing while track prep was performed. Next Friday we need to fill the bleachers to capacity as we need to give away the $500 in cash if we have a large enough crowd. See everyone next Friday Night for great Family Fun and Racing action at Atchison County Raceway, “We’ll be here all season”!

Opening Night a Booming Success at Atchison County Raceway

April 19th, 2015

Morgan and the Freeman Teen Band got the night off to a rocking start as Atchison County Raceway kicked of the 2015 racing season. Before the racing even started the kids were treated to a carnival of fun and games and $500 cash gave a way to lucky fans in attendance. During Intermission fans were treated to a car jumping through a ring of fire and a two minute shopping spree to Alps Grocery Store given to a lucky fan. Now on to the red hot racing action on the track.

Jr Sprint saw Dakota Earls make his laps and successfully capture the trophy in his beautiful #15e race car.

Next to the track was the always impressive Kids Mods with #33 “Nitro” Nicholas Carpenter in victory circle. Nicholas‘ win did not come easy as he hooked the inside berm and spun out with only a handful of laps to go, yet recover and race to the finish with a broken front end. Right on his heels to the finish was eleven year old Jace Whitt who would wheel his #26 to a solid second place. The young lady in the field, 11 year old Hayden Hinton, would drive a flawless race and bring home the #36h third.

E-Mods would put on a race to remember as second generation driver “Rowdy” Chris Dishong would battle side by side most of the race with another second generation driver Justin Asher #74. Dishong would work high and low for a way around Asher and finally pull ahead and on to victory in the fast #41. Asher would have to settle for second and a hard charging Keith Simmons #222 would finish third. Starting on the pole and early race leader Matthew Lance #12x would fade late and place fourth with Corey Myers #15 rounding out the nights top five.

Hobby Stocks were the next to try and tame the fast 1/5 mile of dirt with continued side by side racing. John Willard in #1/2crazy would lead early and race side by side with Joshua Munsen #19, with Munsen pulling away in the end to capture the night’s victory. Willard would settle for second on this night with “Young Gun” Conner Masoner #47x a close third. Lonnie Myers #62 and “Wild” Wayne Brooke #18 were the two big movers of the race charging from the back of the pack to the front with Myers fourth and Brooke fifth.

Always putting on one of the best shows of the night, Street Stock would not disappoint with flag to flag, door to door, racing action. When the smoke had settled car #22a of Alvie Christofferson stood tall in victory lane with the wheels flashing and the crowd cheering. Alvie would be challenged every lap as Billy Spilman would not go away using the inside to hold Christofferson at bay early but slip the #63 to third late. Charging from the back of the pack, Brandon “The Rocket” Crockett #98 would battle Christofferson to the checkers but fall just a bit short finishing second. Anthony Robertson #82m would battle with “Wheel Man” Daniel King #24k with Robertson fourth and King fifth.

In a locked and loaded field of B-Mods the action was fast and furious from the drop of the green till the checkers flew. Gerald Wahwahsuck #110w would lead early and look like the car to beat until a broken hood pin would end his chances at victory. Gerard would drive the remainder of the race holding the hood down with one hand and driving with the other. Truman Asher #73 was the beneficiary and took over the lead and held on to pick up the opening night win. Racing from the back to the front Jake Richards #7j would challenge Asher late but run out of laps finishing second. Early leader Wahwahsuck would hang on and finish third with Dustin Thulin #45 fourth and the “Mad Dog” Matt Dorssom coming home in fifth.

Bringing the night’s features to a close the Sport Compact would see good hard racing throughout the pack. With a daring last turn, last lap pass, #22 Dusty Young would pick up the victory by a mere car length. The #1/2pi of James Reed would lead most of the feature only to see it slip away on the last lap leaving him to place second. Travis Baldwin #A1 would race his way toward the front and finish third holding James Lemke #17 to fourth. Running a very smooth and consistent feature, #08 of Joshua Conrad would finish a solid fifth.

Atchison County Raceway would like to thank all the fans for coming out and showing their support by filling the pits and the grandstands for this great night of racing and family fun. Remember fans if we can fill the bleachers again next week we will be giving away another $500 cash to you, the fans. Hope everyone enjoyed the night and “we’ll be here all season”
