Sargeant Goes Back-to-Back at LOR in Thrilling Charge; Edges Closer to Championship

MOORESVILLE, N.C. (July 24, 2017) – For the second race in a row, Cunningham Motorsports driver Dalton Sargeant turned heads, driving his No. 77 Big Tine Ford Fusion to the lead in an impressive win in the Sioux Chief PowerPEX 200 at Lucas Oil Raceway Friday night. Charging his way from 11th to first in just four laps, the win comes two weeks after Sargeant left his mark at Iowa Speedway, making this his third victory of the season and Cunningham’s second win at the famed Indiana track.

“This was definitely a much-needed win,” said Sargeant. “Every race we know we have to get a good finish in order to stay fighting for the championship and the guys on this team have never given up even though we’ve had a pretty big point deficit in the past. To be able to battle back from a 12th place starting position and methodically work our way to the front and put ourselves in contention for a win is a testament to how fast these Cunningham cars are every week. A lot of our friends from Big Tine were at the race and to be able to get a win with all of them there was really special. I think there’s a lot to look forward to these next few races and hopefully, we’ll keeping adding wins to the season.”

The night opened with Sargeant starting back in the 12th position but immediately made his way into the top-10 by lap five. When the first caution of the night fell on lap 56, Sargeant came down pit road to get two new General Tires and Sunoco race fuel, restarting in the seventh position on lap 64. Three more cautions fell before Sargeant broke into the top-five, restarting third on lap 136 after the team opted to follow the two leaders and stay off of pit road. Battling a field full of cars with fresh tires, Sargeant fell back into seventh and remained off of pit road when another caution came with just over 50 laps to go. Continuing to fight lead cars with new tires, Sargeant dropped to tenth before rain started to fall, bringing out the final caution on lap 174 where Sargeant would get the four tires he needed to propel him towards the front of the field.

Keith Flach Blitzes the Field for 1st Valley Win of 2017

Saturday night brought some sketchy weather to Lebanon Valley Speedway.  Rains came and stopped the program during the third Pro Stock heat.  After the track was packed back in, the full card was completed.

The rain resulted in a very quick racing surface that usually makes it quite difficult to pass.  No one bothered to inform Keith Flach of that.

Likely the biggest moment of the feature occurred on the very first lap.  Paul Gilardi had a brief issue in turn 2. Elmo Reckner had to stomp on the brakes to avoid Gilardi and got hit from behind by Brett Hearn.  Reckner spun while Hearn drove off with a bent right front corner.

Lee USA Speedway 7/21/17 Race Report

Lee, NH — The Valenti Modified Racing Series rolled into the Lee USA Speedway for a pair of 50-lap events on Friday night, the second appearance of the year for the tour at “New Hampshire’s Center of Speed“. It was a memorable night for the two VMRS feature winners as both Dan Meservey, Jr. of Brewster, MA and Troy Talman of Oxford, MA picked up their first-ever series victories in the doubleheader.

Polesitter Dylan Rock of Enfield led the opening 46 laps of the first 50-lap run, but a late-race restart gave Meservey the shot he needed, and he made the best of it. Meservey slipped past Rock to take the point on lap 47, and led the field to John Spence Jr.‘s checkered flag three laps later to collect the win.

Rock settled for a hard-earned runner-up finish, with his teammate Donnie Lashua of Canaan third, points leader Anthony Nocella of Woburn, MA fourth, and Jeff Gallup of Feeding Hills, MA fifth. Sixth went to Josh Cantara, followed by Russ Hersey of Swanzey, Tony Ricci of Westbrook, ME, Sammy Rameau of Westminster, MA, and Matt Mead of Richmond.

Lots of Spots On the Line as Entry List Grows to 50 for 44th Annual Oxford 250

NAPLES, ME (July 24) – Entries from every corner of the United States, as well as Canada, continue to make their way into the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) offices for the 44th Annual Oxford 250.  Annually, the best-attended asphalt short track race in the country for both fans and participants, the Oxford 250 will take place on August 25-27 at the legendary Oxford Plains Speedway, paying $25,000 to the winner.  Televised this year in front of a nationwide audience on MAV TV, and with additional lap leader bonus money also on the line, this year’s Oxford 250 winner could potentially take home up to $50,000.

Several drivers have already punched their tickets to the prestigious race through the “Road To The Oxford 250” qualifying events held at tracks throughout the country and Canada.  While those drivers are “locked” in, each of them will still have to participate in their respective qualifying races as they try to improve their starting positions for the tough 250 lap PASS National Championship event. This leaves at least 34 spots available to the top short track racers in North America as they try to make their way in to one of Super Late Model racing’s “crown jewel” events.

Nova Scotia’s Craig Slaunwhite just became the 50th entrant for this year’s Oxford 250, teaming up with Gary Crooks in hopes of making the big race.  Slaunwhite joins an All-Star cast of Canucks at Oxford, including Donald Theetge, Lonnie Sommerville, Cole Butcher, and British Columbia’s Sarah Cornett-Ching.

Surviving and red flag riddled A-Feature event at the Missouri quarter-mile, Hagar was challenged early by Zach Daum following a complete restart with the No. 9jr able to hold point. With the No. 5d and the No. 17 of Josh Baughman in tow, Daum and Baughman came together on Lap 11; resulting in Zach going for a ride off the fourth turn.
Not able to keep pace with Hagar on the restart, the No. 17 came under fire from Randy Martin who got the slide for the runner-up spot, only to have the caution put him back to third. Taking the spot away on the ensuing restart, everyone continued to chase the No. 9jr as the red lights blinked on again near the race’s mid-point when Evan Martin and Dominic Scelzi came together; sending the No. 4 off the track and into the trees in Turn 2.

On the restart Orlando went back to the lead, but Jeremy Pitts was coming in a hurry. Pitts made a bold move from 5th to 2nd and set his sights on the 818 of Orlando.

Utica-Rome Speedway’s Ultimate Sportsman Showdown Postponed Until Sunday, September 10

VERNON, NY- With a high probability of rain in the forecast throughout the evening, Utica-Rome Speedway decided to postpone the Ultimate Sportsman Showdown that was scheduled for Sunday, July 23.  The $5,000 to win, $500 to start Sportsman event is now rescheduled for Sunday September 10.
With some forecasts showing a 90 percent chance of rain at race time, Utica-Rome Speedway management made the tough call to postpone the event.  With teams and fans coming in from throughout the region, it was a call made to try and prevent long travel time only to have the event partially completed due to rain.  A partially completed event would have created a logistic nightmare in rescheduling the event that would satisfy all qualified drivers. 
Race time for the Ultimate Sportsman Showdown on September 10 will be at 5 p.m. with pit gates opening at 2 p.m. while grandstands will open at 2:30 p.m.

Brown Surges after Absence at Knoxville

Knoxville Raceway, KNOXVILLE, Iowa (July 22) – Brian Brown returned to Knoxville after a two-week absence and came away the 410 victor at Knoxville Raceway Saturday night.  Sawyer Phillips took the 360 feature and Matthew Stelzer was the victor in the 305 division with 3M as the title sponsor for the night.

With the week’s weather as hot as this grizzled scribe has ever seen, the track was in excellent shape for the final event of the evening as the two Madsen brothers sat on the pole of the 20-lap A Feature for 410s.  Ian out-dragged Kerry to the first turn at the drop of the green with Brian Brown in tow heading down the back chute.  Brown cleared Kerry Madsen on lap four and set up a multi-lap duel with Ian.

With both front-running drivers trading sliders, it looked to be a hotly contested duel and it did not disappoint. Lap 8 saw K. Madsen slow on the backstretch with his night coming to an end with engine problems. Meanwhile, Brown had made a pass of I. Madsen and would be scored for leading that lap.  The next circuit would be yellowed as K. Madsen was unable to make his way into the pit area.
