Scott finds USMTS success at Kossuth County Speedway

September 2nd, 2017

ALGONA, Iowa–Just when he needed it most, Stormy Scott owned the night Wednesday at the Kossuth County Speedway in claiming his third win during the USMTS Hunt for the Casey’s Cup powered by S&S Fishing & Rental.

After winning the opening heat race, Scott redrew the fourth starting spot and needed just five laps to take the lead away from polesitter Tyler Wolff.

From there, the 27-year-old from Las Cruces, N.M., waited out three cautions before taking the checkered flag more than eight seconds ahead of second-place finisher Ryan Gustin in the series’ first visit to the Algona, Iowa, clay oval since 2010.

With two-time defending USMTS national champion Jason Hughes leading Scott in the points chase, the win was crucial in keeping the margin narrow with just five events remaining in this year’s USMTS Hunt for the Casey’s Cup.

Hughes, who finished fifth in Wednesday’s feature race, now leads by 40 markers over Scott who is 52 points clear of Cade Dillard, who came up just three points shy of besting Hughes for the 2016 title.

Dereck Ramirez finished third in Wednesday’s 35-lapper and Ricky Thornton Jr. passed Hughes on the final lap to claim the fourth spot-a feat worthy of the Wehrs Machine & Racing Products ‘Trick Move’ of the Race Award.

Zack VanderBeek and Jake Timm started 17th and 18th, respectively, and followed each other through the pack to finish sixth and seventh with VanderBeek nabbing the KSE Racing Products Hard Charger Award.

Josh Angst earned an eighth-place paycheck, Jake O’Neil was ninth and Wolff held on for a tenth-place finish.

Wednesday’s win was also significant for Scott as it propelled him past VanderBeek and Tommy Myer on the United States Modified Touring Series all-time win list. Scott now sits alone in fifth place with 43 career victories.

With the Rancho Milagro Bonus Bucks, Scott’s take home pay climbed to $5,000 for his efforts. He, along with Ramirez and VanderBeek, have not missed a USMTS race in 2017-a total of 62 nights of racing since the season-opener on Feb. 9.

On Thursday, the series heads to the Fairmont Raceway in Fairmont, Minn., for the 10th Annual USMTS Summer Spectacular where Jason Hughes is a two-time-and the most recent-winner at the 51-year-old Martin County Fairgrounds.

Other past USMTS feature winners include Mark Noble, Kelly Shryock, Ryan Gustin (two wins), Ryan Ruter, Johnny Scott, Rodney Sanders and Jason Krohn.

The pit gate opens at 4 p.m. and the grandstands open at 5. Hot laps begin at 7 with racing to follow at 7:30. Adult tickets are $20, youth (ages 11-15) are $10 and kids 10 & under are free. Pit passes are $35.

Coupons good for $2 off adult admission available at Casey’s General Stores locations in Amboy, Fairmont, Sherburn, Trimont, Truman, Welcome and Winnebago plus Armstrong in Iowa. To find the location nearest you, visit www.caseys.com.

Cory Crapser and his No. 07 Mountain Dew Spiked Lemonade USMTS Modified will be at the Casey’s General Store located at 202 E. Blue Earth in Fairmont from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Fans can get a special $5-off ‘Hot Ticket’ directly from Crapser during his appearance.

The Iron Man Challenge featuring Holley USRA Stock Cars and Out-Pace USRA B-Mods will also be in action, battling for series points as well as precious Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series national points.

The Fairmont Raceway is a high-banked 1/2-mile dirt oval located 1.0 mile south of I-90 (exit 99) on CR 39. For more information, call (507) 382-4531 or visit www.fairmontraceway.com online.

On Friday, the USMTS rolls into the Fayette County Speedway in West Union, Iowa. Saturday takes the tireless USMTS touring titans to the Deer Creek Speedway in Spring Valley, Minn., and the five-night swing wraps up Sunday at the Cresco Speedway in Cresco, Iowa.

Kossuth County Deery checkers fly for Callahan

July 10th, 2016

While Callahan paced the Deery Brothers Summer Series main event and earned $2,000, Aikey edged Tyler Bruening by all of one point to top standings for the first half of the IMCA Late Model tour season for a $2,500 prize.

The 30-lap main event ran caution-free. Callahan started on the pole and was not seriously challenged as lapped traffic never became an issue and the closest Bruening could get in the waning circuits was four car lengths back.

Cayden Carter, Charlie McKenna and Ryan Dolan completed the top five. Carter was also the $250 Sunoco Race Fuels feature qualifier drawing winner.

Skies over Algona were dark earlier in the evening, with a tornado warning to the north and storm warnings all around, but a rainbow greeted Late Model drivers as they drove onto the track for their main event.

The ninth event of the 30th annual tour is Sunday, July 10 at Dubuque Speedway. That 50-lap feature also pays $2,000 to win and a minimum of $300 to start.

Pit gates open at 4 p.m. and the grandstand opens at 5 p.m. Hot laps are at 6 p.m. with racing to follow. Spectator admission is $16 for adults, $14 for seniors, $10 for students ages 13-17 and free for 12 and under. Pit passes are $30.

Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars and Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods complete the program.

Nezworski dominates in Deery win at Kossuth County, regains series point lead

July 3rd, 2015

ALGONA, Iowa – His Thursday night feature win at Kossuth County Speedway did more than put $3,000 in Andy Nezworski’s bank account.

His start to finish run at the front of the IMCA Late Model pack put him back on top of point stand­ings for the Deery Brothers Summer Series.

The 40-lapper ran caution free and Nezworski had more than a straightaway on runner-up Jeff Aikey when the checkers flew in from of a big Kossuth County crowd.

Todd Malmstrom, Scott Fitzpatrick and Ryan Dolan completed the top five.

“It took a while to get through lapped traffic, but we got through OK,” said Nezworski, who loaded up and headed for home rather than stay for the post-race fireworks display. “It was a good night for us and we needed it to be. It was a long trip up here.”

Nezworski had finished no worse than seventh through the first seven Deery events this season. His series career second victory, and first since April 29 of 2008, gave him a one point edge over Justin Kay in the 2015 title chase.

Kay, the defending Deery champion, was sixth at Algona.

Winner of the $250 Sunoco Race Fuels feature qualifier drawing was Jeremy Grady.

A pair of $3,000 to win shows are on the schedule next Tuesday, July 7 at West Liberty Raceway and Wednesday, July 8 at Independence Motor Speedway.
