Lights, Camera & Plenty of Action for Coughlin in Daytona

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – Friday’s NextEra Energy Resources 250 for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at Daytona International Speedway (FL) was a wild one for all involved, but when the dust settled Cody Coughlin had passed more than a 100 trucks during the race and scored his best NASCAR finish to date.

Coughlin started the 100-lap race in the 17th position and finished 11th.  In Friday’s kickoff to the 2017 season at Daytona, the Ohio native had 113 quality passes, according to NASCAR statistical reports, which ranked second among all drivers.
The 21-year-old driver sustained minor nose damage in a 17-truck crash on the second lap of the race.  His ThorSport Racing team worked hard throughout the event to patch up the damage as best possible.

Grant the Top Gun on Night One of Winter Dirt Games VIII

Ocala, Florida………Justin Grant’s most recent visit to Bubba Raceway Park prior to Friday night’s USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship 2017 season-opener ended in heartbreak.

One year later, despite late-race contact that nearly spelled disaster for the Ione, California native, the 26-year-old Grant swiftly exorcised those demons to capture night one of “Winter Dirt Games VIII.”

Since joining forces last August, Grant and the Sam McGhee Motorsports team have been stellar in USAC competition. In a mere seven starts, the combo has already amassed five top-five finishes and their first two series victories together: last September’s “4-Crown Nationals” at Eldora Speedway and now at the three-eighths-mile, D-shaped speedway in Ocala, Fla.

DIRTcar Nationals Night 11 Recap

Fog a First Time Winner at Volusia
BARBERVILLE, FL. – February 25, 2016 – The World of Outlaws Craftsman® Late Model Series took the track at Volusia Speedway Park for the first time on night 11 of DIRTcar Nationals. During the 40-lap Craftsman Club Feature fans and drivers in attendance witnessed a thick fog roll in after 10pm that was the concoction of two days of heavy rain followed by a third of sunny blue skies. For the drivers’ safety, the feature was called complete with 23 laps in the books due to poor visibility.
Despite the bad luck Mother Nature brought, Shane Clanton was the class of the field all around. He had the fastest lap time during qualifying with 15.861-second lap, won his heat race and led all 23-laps of the feature.
“I hate that Mother Nature brought this fog in, but it’s pretty bad out there,” Clanton said. “Every straightaway you had to pull a tearoff because it’s like rain. I hate it for the fans. They didn’t get to see a full feature here. I think we had the best car tonight, so hopefully we can repeat tomorrow and do it all over.”

Terry McCarl Stands Tall On Night 2 of the King of the 360’s with the ASCS Southern Outlaw Sprints

TAMPA, Fla. (February 24, 2017) The second night of competition at East Bay Raceway Park’s King of the 360’s and Ronald Laney Memorial ended with the defending champion in Victory Lane as Iowa’s Terry McCarl mastered the low line to claim the win with the Lucas Oil ASCS Southern Outlaw Sprints.

Robbie Stillwaggon from the pole outdueled the No. 24 of Terry McCarl on the start. With the track locked to the bottom groove, the field was quick to find the tail with traffic coming into play on Lap 8.

Having fallen to third in the early laps, the race into traffic proved just what McCarl needed as Terry raced around the No. 53 of Shawn Donath on Lap 9. With Stillwaggon directly to his front wing, the No. 24 made quick work of Robbie to grab the lead on the tenth round.
With the track clearing as the field ran to Lap 15, McCarl held a half straightaway advantage over Shawn Donath who followed McCarl to second as he passed for the lead; but the field would again find Terry.
