Scott great in Worthington’s USMTS Summer Slam

July 4th, 2018

WORTHINGTON, Minn.–With the march toward the USMTS Hunt for the Casey’s Cup title at the halfway mark, Johnny Scott has set himself up as the man to beat in the battle to become the 20th USMTS national champion and $50,000 richer.

On Thursday night at the Nobles County Speedway, the 28-year-old from Las Cruces, N.M.-now living in Cameron, Mo.-bolstered his position as the leader of the pack with a thrilling victory at the semi-banked 3/8-mile clay oval in Worthington, Minn.

From the outside of the front row, Scott snagged the lead at the drop of the green flag with polesitter and 2007 USMTS national champ Jason Krohn of nearby Slayton, Minn., following close behind.

With drivers from the front of the field to the back maneuvering all over the racing surface, the fans witnessed perhaps the best racing ever staged in the eighth running of the USMTS Summer Slam event.

Scott paced the first 11 laps but lapped traffic impeded his progress just enough on lap 12 to allow Krohn to slip past and assume the top spot, but Scott recovered two laps later and regained the lead with 14 laps in the books.

The third and final caution waved on lap 22, and Scott was never challenged from that point forward in winning by more than four seconds over Terry Phillips, who matched his best finish of the 2018 campaign while still in search of that first checkered flag.

The $2,850 triumph was Scott’s sixth of the year but first at the Nobles County Speedway, and raised his USMTS career wins total to 36 and a tie with Jon Tesch for seventh on the all-time list.

Krohn, who won here in 2011, settled for a third-place paycheck and Jake O’Neil improved from ninth to fourth in the 40-lapper, but the KSE Racing Products Hard Charger Award went to Ryan ‘The Reaper’ Gustin who finished fifth after rolling off 17th on the starting grid.

Rodney Sanders, Lance Mari, Zack VanderBeek, Stormy Scott and Trevor Anderson rounded out the top 10 finishers in Thursday night’s blockbuster.

FRIDAY: The touring USMTS titans return to the Brown County Speedway in Aberdeen, S.D., on Friday for the 3rd Annual Best Western USMTS Modified Showdown with Midwest Modifieds and BCS Pure Stocks joining the on-track racing party.

Stormy Scott won this race last year, and Corey Dripps captured the inaugural event at the high-banked 1/3-mile clay oval on June 10, 2011.

Larson, Moudry Iron Man Challenge winners in Worthington

August 27th, 2017

WORTHINGTON, Minn.–A pair of Gopher State speedsters-Dustin Larson and Ben Moudry-sped to hard-fought Iron Man Challenge victories Thursday at the Nobles County Speedway in Worthington, Minn.

Larson started 11th on the grid, powered his way to the lead in just seven laps and then held off Derek Green for the final 13 circuits to claim the Holley USRA Stock Car main event win.

It was the first Iron Man trophy for Larson and well-earned as the Rushmore, Minn., racer withstood several challenges from Green, who started 15th on the field, and crossed the finish line with less than a second to spare to earn a $600 paycheck.

Polesitter Jesse Brown was third, Brandon Murphy came from ninth to fourth and Lake Sathoff passed 11 competitors en route to a fifth-place finish.

In Out-Pace USRA B-Mod action, Moudry of Hastings, Minn., pocketed $500 and notched his third Iron Man triumph of the 2017 campaign by passing points leader Cole Denner on lap 8, and then showing him the way to the checkered flag 12 laps later.

Cullen DeRuyter secured third-place money, Tyler Tesch stormed from the 15th starting spot to grab fourth and Devon Schlumbohm rounded out the top five.

Three-time defending USRA Hobby Stock national champion Dustin Gulbrandson of Sioux Falls, S.D., came out on top in the USRA Hobby Stock feature race and walked away with the $400 top prize.

Chad Lonneman, Justin Luinenburg, Nick Schilling and Thomas Kracht finished second through fifth, respectively.

On Friday, the rugged Iron Man Challenge road warriors roll into the Rapid Speedway in Rock Rapids, Iowa, with USRA Hobby Stocks and Sportsmans rounding out the five-division program. Gates open at 5:30 and racing begins at 7:30.

The Park Jefferson Speedway in Jefferson, S.D., hosts the high-flying action of the USMTS and Iron Man Challenge on Saturday with the lightning-fast Nebraska 360 Sprint Car Series vs. MSTS Sprint cars also in action. Gates open at 5 p.m. with the first green flag slated for 7:15.

Sanders dodges raindrops, tops USMTS feature at Nobles County Speedway

August 27th, 2017

Mother Nature could only delay, but not deny, Rodney Sanders of victory Thursday night as the USMTS Hunt for the Casey’s Cup powered by S&S Fishing & Rental marched through the Nobles County Speedway in Worthington, Minn., for the 7th Annual USMTS Summer Slam presented by Pace Performance.

The one thing that did stand in his way-Stormy Scott-fell victim to a flat tire while leading on lap 12. Sanders inherited the lead and never gave it up over the final 28 times around the 3/8-mile clay oval.

While Sanders celebrated with a $3,000 paycheck for his 78th career United States Modified Touring Series triumph, it was a colossal misfortune for Scott who was looking to make up ground on Jason Hughes in the points battle.

Hughes suffered a flat tire of his own early on and had to tag the rear of the field. He rebounded to finish seventh while Scott dropped out for good with seven laps to go and was scored in the 14th finishing position.

It was a good points night for Cade Dillard, however, as he claimed the runner-up spot after a spirited fight for the lead with Sanders.

Jake O’Neil earned the KSE Racing Products Hard Charger Award and the Wehrs Machine & Racing Products Hard Charger Award, racing from 13th on the grid to third at the checkered flag.

Ryan Gustin was fourth and Dereck Ramirez finished fifth. R.C. Whitwell, Hughes, Travis Saurer, Jake Timm and Zane DeVilbiss completed the top 10.

Friday night will find the USMTS Hunt for the Casey’s Cup rambling into Rock Rapids, Iowa, as the Rapid Speedway hosts the Monsters of Modifieds along with the Iron Man Challenge featuring Holley USRA Stock Cars and Out-Pace USRA B-Mods. USRA Hobby Stocks and Sportsmans will also be in action.

The pits open at 4:30 p.m., spectator gates open at 5:30, hot laps begin at 7 and the first heat race hits the track at 7:30. Grandstand tickets are $25 for adults, $5 for kids ages 7-14 and free for children 6 and under. A pit pass is $25.

Coupons good for $2 off adult admission are available at Casey’s General Stores locations in Hull, Rock Rapids, Sheldon, Sibley and Sioux Center, plus Brandon, Canton, Harrisburg and Sioux Falls in South Dakota, and Luverne in Minnesota. Visit www.caseys.com to find the location nearest you.

The Rapid Speedway is a semi-banked 3/8-mile dirt oval located 0.5 mile east of US 75 on SR 9, then 0.5 mile south on South Tama St. (400 S. Tama St., Rock Rapids, IA 51246). For more information, call (712) 470-1850 or (712) 472-3742 or visit www.rockrapidsspeedway.com online.

Zevenbergen, Moudry claim Iron Man Challenge wins at Nobles County Speedway

June 9th, 2017

WORTHINGTON, Minn. — The four-day string of Iron Man Challenge events could not be going any better for Ocheyedan, Iowa’s Elijah Zevenbergen. The Holley USRA Stock Car ace chalked up his third series win in as many nights at the Nobles County Speedway Saturday, with Mason City, Iowa, remaining on the weekend schedule. In doing so, Zevenbergen earned a $200 bonus from Big Orv’s Bar in Adrian. The bonus comes from winning on back-to-back nights with Rapid Speedway in Rock Rapids, Iowa.

Zevenbergen’s win was a lot tougher than the first two this week. Thursday, he cruised to a dominating win on the half-mile track at Sioux Center, Iowa. He also led comfortably at Rapid Speedway on Friday. The Worthington Glass Holley USRA Stock Car feature was a hotly contested race with four lead changes. Spencer Kalass of Luverne came from third to lead the first couple of laps. Worthington driver Dustin Larson moved up from seventh to get by Kalass to become the second leader.

Zevenbergen started alongside Larson. It took him a little longer to get to the front, but when he did it looked like he’d be there for good. That was until a couple of late cautions created some tense moments at the front. With Zevenbergen and Larson concerned with each other’s whereabouts, Derek Green of Granada snuck by the two drivers to grab the lead on a restart. However, after a little rubbing with Larson, Zevenbergen found the momentum he needed to get past Green and land in victory lane.

Green was able to place second, followed by Larson, Jesse Brown and Luke Sathoff. Iron Man Challenge points leader Steve Jackson was the hard charger. He gained nine positions to finish sixth.

The DeRuyter Pallets Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature was also an Iron Man Challenge points race. Last year’s Iron Man Challenge points champion and 2015 Out-Pace USRA B-Mod national champion Andy Bryant, Fort Scott, Kan., was attempting to win on consecutive nights. He led the majority of the feature with Montrose, S.D.’s Tyler Johnson chasing him around the track. Johnson finished second to Bryant the night before at Rock Rapids, but it was Ben Moudry of Hastings that stole their thunder.

Moudry, who started fourth, found his groove late in the race to pass Johnson and Bryant in scoring his first-ever Iron Man Challenge win. Johnson eventually got past Bryant as well for another second-place finish. After Bryant, Kyle Anderson and Dan Hovden finished fourth and fifth. Iron Man Challenge points leader Cole Denner started seventh and finished seventh.

Ben Moudry won the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature.

Eighteen cars competed in the Schwalbach Plumbing & Heating USRA Hobby Stock portion of the show which saw a great run by 2011 USRA Hobby Stock national champion Dan Strandberg of Worthington. Strandberg, who started on the pole, watched Justin Luinenberg of Reading grab the lead from the second position. But Strandberg made a perfect pass in the fourth turn of the second lap to grab the lead which he did not relinquish even though Luinenberg followed closely behind for the final 14 laps.

Malik Sampson and Blake Arends were third and fourth. Chad Lonneman raced from 17th to fifth.

Dan Strandberg won the USRA Hobby Stock feature.

On Sunday, the historic Mason City Motor Speedway will host special appearance by the Iron Man Challenge featuring Holley USRA Stock Cars and Out-Pace USRA B-Mods, plus the Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series featuring Budweiser USRA Modifieds, USRA Hobby Stocks and Rookies Rockin’ USRA Tuners.

The pit gate will open at 4:00, grandstands open at 5:00 and hot laps begin at 6:00 with racing to follow. Tickets are $12 for general admission. Juniors ages 13-16, seniors 65 and older, members of the military and first responders with proper i.d. get in for $10. Kids 12 and under are free. Pit passes are $25.

The Mason City Motor Speedway is a half-mile clay oval located 5.1 miles east of I-35 at exit 194 on SR 122 (at the North Iowa Fairgrounds). For more information, call (641) 424-6515 or check out www.masoncitymotorspeedway.com online.
