DJ Shaw bests Joey Doiron on restart to score Southern Maine Chrysler Jeep Dodge PASS North Super Late Model 150 at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway

Scarborough, Maine — DJ Shaw of Center Conway, New Hampshire drove from third position to first on a restart with four laps remaining in Saturday’s Southern Maine Chrysler Jeep Dodge 150 at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway to nail down his first Pro All Stars Series Super Late Model win of the season.

Shaw, the 2014 PASS North Super Late Model champion, watched Doiron blast on by earlier in the race after the Berwick, Maine driver, and eventual runner-up, charged from his 14th starting position into a lead threatened only by hometown racer Garrett Hall – the opening day PASS Super Late Model winner at Connecticut’s Thompson Speedway until the final pair of restarts took place, with six and four laps remaining, respectively.

Shaw had been a healthy distance behind Doiron aboard his Dale Shaw Race Cars / HK Powersports 60, but the once-dominant JBJ Machine 73 didn’t have the handles on cold tires. That opened the door for Shaw, who stepped through and into victory lane.

Felker and Benson Take Wins at Belle-Clair

Belleville, IL – Andrew Felker of Carl Junction, Missouri overtook Zach Daum in the final laps of the Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget Series feature event to earn his sixth career victory with the series, on a two-in-a-row victory streak after his win last week at Macon Speedway. Nathan Benson of Concordia, Missouri utilized lap traffic to pick off Slater Helt for his second Speedway Motors 600cc Outlaw Micro Series victory of 2016, his 17th victory with the series.

In typical thrilling Belle-Vegas fashion, Felker would come from eighth, as Christopher Bell and Austin Brown shared the front row for the start of the 30 lap feature. At the drop of the green, Bell would take the lead with Zach Daum in tow. Struggling to keep the front wheels on the ground, Daum worked overtime to reel in Bell. The gap between the two drivers would shorten as Bell quickly closed in on lap traffic and the caution flew for Holly Shelton spun at the bottom of turn two.

With 13 laps in the books, Bell would quickly use the two lap cars between himself and Daum to create a large gap between first and second place, all the while as Felker worked his way into the top three. Working lap traffic, Bell would hit misfortune as he found himself upside down exiting turn four, diminishing his chances for victory. He would be alright and would restart at the tail end of the field.

Rain Cuts ASCS Warrior Region Short at Callaway Raceway

FULTON, Mo. (April 29, 2016) With cars headed to the staging area, it looked as if the Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps was going to win the race against Mother Nature, but the top came in and the bottom fell out as rain swept across the Callaway Raceway.

There will be a test and tune session from 3pm-6:30pm on Thursday, June 16, the day before the NASCAR 150, as the majority of K&N drivers have not previously raced on the Stafford ½ mile.  At the conclusion of the practice session, Stafford Speedway will open its paddock area to allow race fans and media to meet and greet the drivers as well as getting a preview of the cars and team haulers from 6:30pm-8:00pm, much like the atmosphere at the track’s season beginning and season ending NAPA Pit Parties.

“Everyone at Team Stafford is looking forward to the WEEI 105.5FM Fan Experience,” said Lisa Arute, Stafford Speedway VP/CFO.  “Typically we’re not able to put on such an event during the course of a season but the K&N Pro Series East event has given us the ability to offer this to our race fans and media members.  As soon as the cars come off the track from their practice session, we’ll open the paddock area and fans and media members can interact with the drivers.  With drivers like Martin Truex, Jr., Austin Dillon, Joey Logano, and Trevor Bayne all having previously raced here at Stafford in the past, you never know if you might be talking with and getting an autograph from a future Daytona 500 winner or a NASCAR Premier Series champion.”

Korner Brothers Lead INEX Legends into National Qualifier at Thompson

Icebreaker, Road Race Style First Pair of Points Events at Thompson in 2016

NO. STONINGTON, CT – When the US Legends cars made their debut on Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park’s (TSMP) 1.7-mile road course last May, the race was reviewed by many as the best to be held on the newly renovated circuit. The immediate success prompted OTB Promotions, Inc. to begin work on a full season series for 2016. The result is a five-event, 10-race championship sponsored by Midstate Site Development (MSD), a Connecticut-based construction company. The first of those five events is part of the Icebreaker, Road Race Style, scheduled for Friday, April 29.

Noah and Glenn Korner, who both raced in the inaugural event in 2015, are enthusiastic about returning to Thompson.

“I really love that road course. It’s unique because of how much flow it has to it,” Noah explained. Glenn, a chemical engineering major at UCONN, expanded on that, “The track is smooth. It has lots of grip and a wide groove, which helps me hone my skills.”

Lee USA American Racer Three Stars Announced

 

Waterbury, VT – The American Racer Three Star program will continue in 2016. The program is designed to recognize three teams in no particular order of performance that had outstanding races at ACT US tour events. There are no specific criteria for deciding who might receive the award of a free American Racer Tire (value $125.00), but a special effort by a team, exceptional race, just plain old hard luck, or other accepted reason to give the award is used to decide the recipients. 

The three stars are chosen by officials and winners will receive certificates for the use of a free American Racer tire at a future Tour race of their choosing during 2016.

The awarding of the stars does not allow for anybody in the top three to receive the recognition. Again this week it would be difficult not to recognize the outstanding effort, strategies, and excitement that Scott Payea brought with his RPM team victory. Payea joined Wayne Helliwell Jr., Ray Parent, Alex Labbe, Quinny Welch, and Todd Davis who made the 30th opening day at Lee one of the most exciting races during the long history of ACT at Lee USA.

Holmes Hopes to Shine in ARCA Race in Home State

MUNFORD, AL — Bret Holmes is prepared to live out a dream this weekend in his home state of Alabama. The Munford, Alabama driver will make his second career ARCA Racing Series start Saturday afternoon, but this will not be an ordinary second career start. He will be strapping behind the wheel of the Bret Holmes Racing/GMS Racing No. 23 Chevy Impala at Talladega Superspeedway, the largest track in his home state.

“I’m very excited about this upcoming weekend and a little nervous at the same time. It’s hard not to be when a majority of your friends and family are going to be watching you and the race is live on TV,” said Holmes. “I can’t put into words how blessed I am to get this opportunity to race at this level and at this track. I spent seven years of my life racing on dirt across the road at Talladega Short Track and Talladega Raceway Park. I want to leave my name at the Superspeedway like I did the dirt tracks, winning races and championships.”

Holmes finished fifth in his first ever ARCA start earlier this month at Tennessee’s Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville. He led laps and battled in the top five over the course of 150 laps. While Talladega presents a much bigger racing surface, Holmes feels confident heading into Saturday’s race.
