Thomas and Miller Claim 11th Annual Meents Memorial, Hagen Seals Championship

(Friday, October 2nd) — Belleville, IL – Tyler Thomas of Owasso, Oklahoma claimed the 11th Annual Charlene Meents Memorial at Belle-Clair Speedway after a hard-fought battle with Zach Daum for his sixth career POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget Series victory, while Darren Hagen’s podium finish sealed the championship. Joe B. Miller led the final six laps of the POWRi Speedway Motors 600cc Outlaw Micro Series feature to claim his fifth victory of the 2015 season.

Earning his first-career pole, and in a brand Spike Chassis with Stanton-Fontana power under the hood, Jake Neuman of New Berlin, Illinois led the field to green with Zach Daum to his outside. At the drop of the green flag Daum would take point in the Daum Crop Insurance, Toyota-powered Eagle #5D coming off turn two as Neuman struggled to keep the front wheels on the ground. With one lap in the books, a nine car pile up would occur off turn four involving Tanner Thorson, Austin Brown, Justin Peck, Daniel Adler, Dereck King, Kevin Thomas, Jr., Eric Fenton, Tim Siner, and Joe B. Miller.

Coming back to green, Tyler Thomas would move to the topside and quickly dispatch of Neuman for second. By lap five Thomas was all over Daum for the lead waiting for the right moment to pounce. Entering turn three, Thomas would make his move sliding for the lead only for the caution to fly for Austin Prock and Justin Peck. Resuming racing with nine laps down, Thomas would be all over Daum going down the back stretch and slide for the lead entering turn three, but Daum powered back around, while Darren Hagen took third from Tucker Klaasmeyer.

Bryan Clauson Breaks Through for First NSL Win at I-80 Speedway

Knoxville, IA, October 2, 2015 – Bryan Clauson led from start to finish Friday night to win his first career FVP National Sprint League feature event.  The win came at the “Fearless 410 Finale” at the I-80 Speedway near Greenwood, Nebraska.  The Noblesville, Indiana driver earned $3,000 for his 25-lap win aboard the Matt Wood Racing #17w.

Clauson jumped out to an early lead from his starting spot outside of row one.  Fellow row one starter, Bill Balog, dogged him early.  He pulled even with the leader on lap nine, when Mike Moore spun, bringing out one of two cautions in the event.

Clauson led Balog, Terry McCarl, Danny Lasoski and Ian Madsen back to green flag racing.  McCarl used the low side to wrestle second from Balog on lap 12.  Four laps later, Lasoski followed McCarl by Balog into third.  Back in the pack, Brian Brown and Dominic Scelzi, who was making his first career NSL start, were exchanging sixth place.

Brunnhoelzl Returning to Concord Seeking North-South Shootout Win

Four-Time NASCAR Southern Modified Champion Eager for Concord Return

Concord, North Carolina — The last time George Brunnhoelzl, III raced at North Carolina’s daunting Concord Speedway tri-oval was the last time the North-South Shootout was held there in 2010. He finished third that day and now he’s looking to go a couple spots better when he heads back to Concord for the 13th Annual John Blewett III North-South Shootout Tour-Type Modified event on November 7.

After the 2010 season, the North-South Shootout was moved to Sophia, North Carolina’s Caraway Speedway. Now that the race is back to its original home of Concord in 2015, Brunnhoelzl has his eyes solely focused on the $10,000 winner’s prize.

“I love Concord,” said Brunnhoelzl. “That’s my favorite track and the fact that they moved the race there is the reason we are going to run it. There’s no race track like it. It’s fast, it’s different, it’s fun, there’s multiple grooves and you can pass. It’s just an all-around awesome track.”

Laperle, Hoar Each Chasing Fourth Milk Bowl Win

Barre, VT – Two of the most accomplished drivers in Milk Bowl and American-Canadian Tour (ACT) Late Model history look to add to their accolades on Sunday, October 11. Three-time Milk Bowl winners Patrick Laperle and Brian Hoar have both entered the 53rd Northfield Savings Bank Milk Bowl at Barre’s Thunder Road. Both will look to tie Robbie Crouch’s record of four victories in the event known as “the toughest short-track stock car race in North America.”

“Patrick and Brian are really capable of doing it if anyone can,” Crouch said. “I would love to see it.”

St-Denis, QC’s Laperle put his stamp on the Milk Bowl from 2005-2008 when he became the only driver to win three times in a four-year span. Laperle was one of the first to enter this year’s event. In seeking a fourth win, he also looks to erase the sting of failing to qualify in 2014.

Little prepares for The Monster Mile and the Drive Sober 125

Jesse Little, a member of NASCAR’s Next class for 2015, returns to Dover International Speedway this weekend for the running of the Drive Sober 125 on the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East circuit.

Little will be back behind the wheel of the No. 97 NASCAR Technical Institute Toyota and Performance Friction Brakes Toyota at a track he’s had a great deal of success at during his NKNPSE career.

“Our team has a good one-mile program over the years and we’re excited to get back to Dover for this weekend’s Drive Sober 125. In the past, we’ve been able to run up front and challenge for a win and solid top-5 finishes. This weekend we’re going in with the same focus,” Little said.

Each start in the 2015 season for Little has been geared towards racing for victories. Over the year, the 18-year old has run in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series while also making several starts in the NKNPSE.

“This year our goal has been to compete on bigger tracks such as Chicagoland Speedway (for ThorSport Racing on the NCWTS) so it can add to my racing experiences in preparation for more starts on the Truck Series. Each time we’ve run on the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East with our Toyota we’ve been good right off the trailer and this Camry should be ready to go for the Drive Sober 125on Friday.”

Known as the Monster Mile, Dover International Speedway presents a one-mile racetrack with plenty of challenges. Little and his team are undaunted by the track heading into the weekend, he noted.

“You have to have patience at Dover and be prepared for a few surprises along the way with a track that has the kind of banking that Dover has. It’s a momentum situation as a driver, you have to be in a good rhythm, hit your marls and keep an eye on what’s going on around you to be successful in this race. Dover is a track where handling and a good setup package can make all the difference. Our Toyota has been on the pole this year (at Bristol in April) so we expect to have a mixture of good qualifying speed and something that can go 125 lap to get us in contention for the victory.”

PASS AIM Recycling Super Late Models Set For Season Finale This Weekend At Oxford

NAPLES, ME (September 30) – Following the grind of a season that began back in April, the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) AIM Recycling Super Late Models will conclude their 2015 campaign this Sunday afternoon at Oxford Plains Speedway.  While veteran Mike Rowe is on the verge of capturing his first title since the 2006 PASS South Super Late Model championship, several drivers would like to end the season on a high note.

Fellow veteran and former 6-time series champion Johnny Clark has reason to be excited heading to this weekend’s 150 lapper.  Clark recently ended a long dry spell by capturing his fourth checkered flag in the prestigious Southern Maine Chrysler Dodge Jeep 300 at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway.  But, Clark credits his recent turnaround with a decision to step back and compete in several local shows at Oxford Plains Speedway prior to the 42nd Running of the Oxford 250 in late August.

“We needed to get our baseline back,” says Clark, a winner of over 30 PASS Super Late Model races during his legendary career.  “Running weekly at Oxford Plains Speedway allowed us to work on one setup.  We were lucky enough to find ourselves in victory lane the week before the 250.”
