Miller Bests ASCS Southern Outlaw Sprints at Deep South Speedway

LOXLEY, Ala. (April 29, 2017) Having to settle for Silver on Friday night, Mississippi’s Michael Miller upgraded to Gold on Saturday with the Lucas Oil ASCS Southern Outlaw Sprints at the Deep South Speedway for his ninth career victory and first of the 2017 season.

Taking the green from the second row, Miller wasted little time advancing to the point. Chased by Friday night’s feature winner, Timmy Thrash, the current series point’s leader advanced into slower traffic as Thrash was left to contend with Brian Bell, then Harli White.

Through two cautions to settle the final laps of Saturday’s feature event, Miller was able to stave off any challenges from the No. 09 with Thrash able to hold on to the runner-up position. Harli White crossed third but would ended up being docked to fifth for a restart infraction, thus advancing Florida’s A.J. Maddox to the final podium step with Kyle Amerson moving to fourth.

Thrash Digs Deep for Lucas Oil ASCS Southern Outlaw Sprint Triumph

LOXLEY, Ala. (April 28, 2017) Some attrition and a few well-placed cautions, along with an impressive last lap pass, resulted in Timmy Thrash parking his Best Western No. 09 in Victory Lane for the first time against the Lucas Oil ASCS Southern Outlaw Sprints at Alabama’s Deep South Speedway this past Friday night.

Topping the first of a two-night affair at the four-tenths-mile oval, the Gulfport, Miss. shoe is the 18th different winner with the Lucas Oil ASCS Southern Outlaw Sprints.

Working through early race cautions, Trash’s run to the front looked to have stalled out in the runner-up position as the No. 4m of Michael Miller held a sizable advantage. Entering the closing laps, however, traffic would prove the defending series champion’s nemesis as Miller’s run was blocked with three laps to go. It was just what the 18th starting Thrash needed to grab the win as the pair battled on the final circuit.

Johnny Herrera Sweeps The ASCS Southwest Shootout

LAS CRUCES, N.M. (April 1, 2017) Making it a perfect weekend at the Southern New Mexico Speedway, Albuquerque’s Johnny Herrera lined his pockets with $5,000 in a sweep of the Consolidated Solar Technologies ASCS Southwest Sprint Car Shootout with the Carlyle Tools ASCS Southwest Region.

Career win No. 19 for Herrera, the MVT No. 45x trailed the opening rounds as Rick Ziehl took off with the race lead on the opening lap. Relinquishing the position to Skylar Gee on the second lap, Skylar was not without company as Herrera followed him around the No. 20z to take second.

Distancing themselves from the field, the pair began searching around the New Mexico oval as the track went black. Edging his line down bit by bit, Herrera found the rubber just as the pair ran down the tail of the field.

TAMPA, Fla. (February 25, 2017) For the second time, Pennsylvania’s Mark Smith ended his weekend at Tampa’s East Bay Raceway Park as the King of the 360’s with the Lucas Oil ASCS Southern Outlaw Sprints.

While Smith gave chase early on, the race on the start saw outside pole starter, Shawn Donath, taking the early advantage over Travis Rilat. Slowed on Lap 3, Rilat was not to be counted out as the No. 29 stole the advantage by just over two tenths before the caution flew again.

Slowed again with five laps complete, Rilat had company on the restart as fourth starting, Mark Smith, began his run on the point. Giving chase and challenging until Lap 13, the following revolution saw the No. M1 advance into the top spot.

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.
