Courtney Checks Out for 2nd Straight “Winter Dirt Games” Win in Ocala

Ocala, Florida………In the spirit of the Winter Olympic games, Tyler Courtney’s performance on Saturday night at Bubba Raceway Park could only be described as flawless – even coming from the Russian judge.

No, you won’t find any triple axels or double lutzes in his 30-lap performance, but you will find the precise execution of a race where nary a single wheel was turned wrong lap-after-lap on his way to a commanding USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship feature win, his second in as many nights at “Winter Dirt Games” in his Clauson Marshall Newman Racing/Priority Aviation – Competition Suspension, Inc./Spike/Rider Chevy.

“I think it handled even better tonight,” Courtney revealed.  “We were able to go pretty much anywhere I put it.  Hats off to Tim (Clauson) and the guys.  They’ve worked their tails off since the week after the Chili Bowl leading up to this.  This is the least I can do to repay those guys for the hours and the blood, sweat and tears that go into this.  This is a really a good way to start off the year.  Obviously, it’s early, so you can’t really worry about points, but it definitely puts us in a good spot heading into Lawrenceburg.”

Florida is Sunshine’s State After Winning “Winter Dirt Games” Night 2

Ocala, Florida………The evolution of Tyler Courtney’s USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car career has progressed by leaps and bounds over the past few seasons.  In 2016, he broke into the win column for the first time.  In 2017, he had a career-high five series wins.  For 2018, the next logical step would be to contend for a series title.

Although the season is admittedly early, Courtney took a big leap toward that goal after a dominating performance Friday on night two of “Winter Dirt Games 9” at Bubba Raceway Park as he drove his Clauson-Marshall-Newman Racing/Priority Aviation – Competition Suspension, Inc./Spike/Rider Chevy to the front on lap three and led the remaining 28 laps to score his first victory for the team in their new sprinter.

Ocala has been a battleground that has proven to be a thorn in Courtney’s side throughout his career.  Four of his five starts at the 3/8-mile D-shaped track coming into Friday had resulted in finishes of 11th or worse.  After a rough start a year ago and an equally tumultuous beginning on Thursday night, the Indianapolis, Indiana native licked his war wounds and arrived in a new frame of mind, a trait he said he didn’t possess at this point last season.

Stockon Strong in “Winter Dirt Games” Night 1 Victory

Ocala, Florida………Strong finishes lead to strong beginnings in the case of Chase Stockon.

After finishing last season with two USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National victories in the final four races, the 29-year-old Fort Branch, Indiana racer has seemingly carried the momentum gracefully into the new year, winning the season opener for the series Thursday on night one of “Winter Dirt Games 9” at Bubba Raceway Park.

When the proverbial ball gets rolling downhill, the last thing you’d think you want to do is change it up, but Stockon felt he had to stay ahead of the game rather than play it safe and stand pat. Now what’s old is new and what’s new is working splendidly for Stockon and his 32 TBI Racing/Superior Tank & Trailer – Angle Buildings/DRC/Fisher Chevy.

Windom Fastest in Winter Dirt Games Practice

Ocala, Florida………Reigning USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Champion Chris Windom led all 30 drivers on practice night of “Winter Dirt Games 9” by recording the fastest lap of the night at Bubba Raceway Park.

Windom, of Canton, Illinois, put his Baldwin Brothers Racing machine right at the top of the leaderboard with an unofficial lap of 13.601, which was under the existing one-lap track record of 13.683, set by Justin Grant during qualifying one year ago. Windom was followed by Dave Darland (13.671), Kevin Thomas, Jr. (13.700), Justin Grant (13.784) and Jarett Andretti (13.817) in the open practice.

Also of note, in the numerical oddity department, four drivers: Nick Bilbee (10th), Timmy Buckwalter (11th), Isaac Chapple (12th) and Mario Clouser (13th) all recorded identical times of 14.013 around the 3/8-mile D-shaped oval.

Thomas, Jr. Sweeps Sunshine State Midget Challenge

Ocala, FL – After snagging the opening night of the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League’s inaugural Sunshine State Midget Challenge at Bubba Raceway Park, Kevin Thomas, Jr. picked up where he left off, leading all 30 laps of the main event. This was Thomas, Jr.’s third victory with the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League.

On the opening lap, Thomas, Jr. immediately took command. With one lap complete, the red was displayed for Sam Johnson who made contact with the wall exiting turn four and got upside down. Johnson was alright, but done for the night. Returning to racing, Thomas, Jr. checked out as Tanner Thorson worked to keep up.

On lap 20 the action slowed as Presley Truedson came to a stop. With plenty of lap traffic between himself and the rest of the field, Thomas, Jr. had a moment of breathing room before the caution came back out on lap 21 for Michelle Decker with front-end damage in turn two. With nine laps to go, Thomas, Jr. checked out and never gave Thorson a chance to challenge him. Zach Daum rounded out the podium, while Chad Boat took fourth, followed by Ryan Robinson.

Kevin Thomas, Jr. Takes Opening Night of Sunshine State Midget Challenge

Ocala, FL – Kevin Thomas, Jr. claimed the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League’s opening night at Bubba Raceway Park in the inaugural Sunshine State Midget Challenge.  Thomas, Jr.’s Florida victory was his second career with POWRi, his first coming back in 2015.

With the initial start called back, the actual start saw Tanner Thorson leading lap one, only to relinquish the lead to Thomas, Jr. down the backstretch.  The following lap the action slowed for Holly Hollan spun entering turn three.  Returning to green Thorson pressured Thomas, Jr. to no avail.  With ten laps down the yellow flew again for Hollan, this time for a flat left rear tire on her machine.

Coming back to green flag racing, Thomas, Jr. checked out and put distance between himself and Thorson.  On lap 20, the caution was displayed as Chad Boat came to a stop.  Boat returned to the pits and was done for the evening.  Retuning to green flag racing with 10 laps to go, Thorson hung right there with Thomas, Jr.  But, with 27 laps completed, Thorson suffered a mechanical failure entering turn one, ending his night and leaving a three-lap shootout.  In a dash to the finish, Thomas, Jr. led Ryan Robinson and Tucker Klaasmeyer to the checkered.

Five Past Winter Dirt Games Winners Among Entries for Ocala USAC Sprint Openers

Ocala, Florida………Five past “Winter Dirt Games” feature winners have entered the 2018 USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship season openers Feb. 15-16-17 at Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, Florida.

The ninth edition of the three-race series in the heart of Florida has had 11 different winning drivers in its 22-race history.  The winner of the opener at the most recent trip by the series to Ocala was Ione, California’s Justin Grant.  The 2018 series runner-up finds himself in new digs this year as the driver of the TOPP Motorsports No. 4. 

In an offseason chock-full of ride swapping, Kevin Thomas, Jr., a 2015 “Winter Dirt Games” feature winner, has added the Hoffman Auto Racing/Dynamics, Inc. colors and the No. 69 to his arsenal for 2018.  The Cullman, Alabama driver led the series with six points wins last season, including the season finale “Oval Nationals” at Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway in November.

Sheldon Haudenschild Goes Wire-to-Wire Against All Stars to Claim Bubba Army Winter Nationals Finale at Bubba Raceway Park

OCALA, Fla. (February 3, 2018) – For the first time in his career, Wooster, Ohio’s Sheldon Haudenschild is a winner in the state of Florida, this time earning $5,000 against the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 during the third and final night of Bubba Army Winter Nationals competition at Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala. The victory raises Haudenschild’s win total to 17 with “America’s Series,” crossing under the final checkers with the “Madman” Kerry Madsen and defending All Star Circuit of Champions champion, Chad Kemenah, in tow.

“That was a blast tonight,” Sheldon Haudenschild said, pilot of the Stenhouse Jr./Marshall Racing entry. “To get through the first week with this NOS Energy, Stenhouse Jr./Marshall Racing team feels good. They’ve been killing it and we’re having a lot of fun. That is what matters in the end.”

Haudenschild survived a pair of cautions and multiple waves of heavy traffic during his campaign at the front of the running order. Despite traffic, Haudenschild never faltered, extending his advantage to nearly three seconds by the midpoint of the 30-lap program. By the time caution flags flew for the first time on lap 17, Haudenschild’s advantage was over five seconds.

Tim Shaffer Edges Kerry Madsen to Win Night Two of Bubba Army Winter Nationals

OCALA, Fla. (February 2, 2018) –  The “Steel City Outlaw” Tim Shaffer made the most of his front row starting position on Friday night, eventually leading all 30 circuits around Bubba Raceway Park to claim his first Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event victory of the season. The pilot of the Rudzik Excavating, No. 49X earned $5,000 for his efforts, edging out the “Madman” Kerry Madsen for the 61st victory of his career against the All Star Circuit of Champions.

“This is great for the Rudzik team,” Shaffer said, a four-time All Star champion from 2009 to 2012. “Everyone works so hard back at the shop. That hard work makes all of this happen. This is what makes all of their hard work fun.”

Shaffer started from the outside-pole position and earned the early advantage, racing by the flagstand for the first time with Tyler Clem and Sheldon Haudenschild in tow. The Aliquippa, Pa., native maintained a quick pace at the front of the running order until caution flags appeared for the first time on lap nine. Unfortunately for Clem and Haudenschild, the caution flag was the result of their misfortune, each collected by a stopped lapped car.

Green flag conditions soon returned with Shaffer resuming his campaign at the front of the running order. With Clem and Haudenschild out, it was Sunbury, Pennsylvania’s Mark Smith inheriting the runner-up position, followed closely by New York native, Coleman Gulick, and Kerry Madsen.

While Shaffer controlled the point, pushing his advantage to nearly two seconds even with traffic coming back into play as early as lap 14, it was Madsen who was attracting the attention, driving by Gulick on lap 11 and eventually squeezing under Mark Smith on lap 20. On lap 21, caution flags appeared for the second and final time once again erasing Shaffer’s advantage.

With rubber starting to come into play around the bottom of the speedway, it was obvious that Shaffer had the edge despite Madsen’s speed. Madsen followed Shaffer back to green on lap 21 and raced on the tail tank of the familiar No. 49X for the next nine circuits. Once again, traffic came into the picture but this time acting as a roadblock around the thin lane of rubbered-up racing surface. Madsen made a few attempts to squeeze under Shaffer, but the attempts failed. The “Steel City Outlaw” prevailed for his third All Star Circuit of Champions victory at Bubba Raceway Park.

“I tried to get out of line and get around the lapped car on the front stretch, but I had to duck back in line,” Shaffer explained. “You just have to be patient. Last night I wasn’t patient and it cost us. To come back tonight and win is just awesome for this team. This is a Rider Engine and it is running great. The first win is always the hardest to get. To get a win this early will really help us the rest of the year. It is a building tool for the team.”

Kerry Madsen chased Shaffer to the line, followed by Mark Smith, Coleman Gulick, and Paul McMahan.

“I did think about trying to squeeze under [Tim Shaffer] a few times, but I thought I better get on the brakes because I didn’t want to take him out,” Madsen explained, pilot of the GoMuddy.com, No. 2. “I tried to keep him honest right there at the end and be right up his bum. If he had a slip, I was going to get right in there. We had a good run. I’m happy for this team. Second run of the year and we got a top-two. I’m happy with that.”

The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will end their three-day visit to Ocala, Fla., on Saturday, February 3, with a third and final appearance at Bubba Raceway Park. “America’s Series” will battle for a $5,000 top prize during the final leg of their Winter Nationals campaign, successfully wrapping up the first segment of their Florida invasion. The All Stars will return to competition on Wednesday evening, February 7, at Volusia Speedway Park near Barberville, Florida.

On Saturday, February 3, starting times will move ahead one hour at Bubba Raceway Park with the All Star drivers meeting scheduled for 4:30 p.m. followed by All Star hot laps at 5:45 p.m., sharp.

Chad Kemenah Hard Charges from 17th to Win 2018 Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions Presented by Mobil 1 Opener at Bubba Raceway Park

OCALA, Fla. (February 1, 2018) – Six-time and defending Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 titlist, Chad Kemenah, kicked-off his 2018 campaign in a big way, not only scoring the All Star Circuit of Champions season opener at Bubba Raceway Park worth $5,000, but doing so from the inside of row nine.

Kemenah, pilot of the familiar, DKW Transport and Bonnell’s Rod Shop-backed, Hunter Racing entry, advanced sixteen positions during his charge to the front of the field, ultimately withstanding a competitive field and ten cautions, two of which resulting in open red flags, to earn a 34th-career All Star victory; his first ever in the Sunshine State. Kemenah’s efforts also earned him the MSD Performance Hard Charger Award.

“Smoke” Tony Stewart finished second during the All Star opener at the Ocala, Fla., venue, followed by Dave Blaney, Parker Price-Miller, who led the first 21 circuits before giving up the top spot, and Carson Short.

Grant and McGhee Stay On a Tear with Early Season Roll

Since Justin Grant and Sam McGhee Motorsports joined up in August of 2016, the pair has seen their level of success soar to a new stratosphere.

When the two knocked down a non-sanctioned win in their first race together at Bloomington Speedway eight months ago, then followed it up with two-straight top-three finishes at the Badlands, you just had the feeling this was a dream pairing in the making.

When their formation resulted in a dominating performance at Eldora Speedway’s “4-Crown Nationals” last September, you just knew this dream was becoming a reality.

In the 16 USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car starts the 26-year-old Grant and McGhee, the 17-year-old mechanical prodigy, have teamed up, they’ve earned an average finish of 3.7. This year alone, that average has peaked to its current 2.3 through six starts, which includes a season-opening victory at “Winter Dirt Games” in Ocala, Florida.

Schuerenberg Escapes to Victory Lane in Winter Dirt Games VIII Finale

Ocala, Florida………A seventh-place starting position and a 360 degree spin at the midway point was not enough to deter Hunter Schuerenberg on the path to a “Winter Dirt Games VIII” victory Saturday night at Bubba Raceway Park.

The 27-year-old Sikeston, Missouri native steadily moved his way toward the front of the field throughout the 30-lap event before surging into the lead with seven laps remaining to collect his first USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car feature victory in nearly three years since a 2014 victory in McCool Junction, Nebraska as well as his ninth career series triumph, joining Mario Andretti and Robbie Stanley for 47th on the all-time list.

At the drop of the green, though, outside front row starter Thomas Meseraull held the point, fending off a furious challenge from previous night’s winner Justin Grant and defending USAC Silver Crown titlist Chris Windom for the first pair of laps.

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.
