Pinkham Jr Tops 500cc's, Pittman Best in 600cc

Granite State News

Posted 2017-05-21

After two weather related cancellations the 2017 season for the O'Reilly Auto Parts Granite State Mini Sprints finally got underway Friday May 19th at The Legion Speedway.

The 500cc Feature was up first and found the #6 of Ken Stridsburg take the lead at the drop of the green flag from his pole position. While Stridsburg was building a nice lead rookie Willy Pinkham Jr in his #54, who started last on the field, was making his way forward. Eddie Puffinburger in the #47 moved into the second spot on lap two and held it until being involved in the races' first caution with 10 laps complete as he tangled with the #17 of Matt Calley. Their misfortune was Pinkham Jr's break as he restarted the race in the 2nd spot. On the green Ken Stridsburg once again took the lead but fell victim to a mechanical failure on the backstretch on lap 13 handing the lead to Willey Pinkham Jr, completing his last to first odyssey. Pinkham Jr. was not seriously challenged for the remaining seven laps and rolled to the win, his first in Granite State Mini Sprint Competition. Brian Lakin in his #11 moved past the #46 of rookie Tyler Vickery on lap 17 to secure the second finishing position. Vickery held on for third with Eddie Puffinburger coming from the rear after being involved in the races' only caution to finish fourth with the #51 of Riley Chaffee completing the top five.

The 600cc feature went caution free with Tony Shaw in his #20 breaking into the lead from the pole position when the green flag flew. Shaw held the top spot for the first three circuits before Kyle Belliveau in his #15 blasted into the lead and drove away to a substantial lead. Shaw held the second spot until Kyle Pittman in the #9 moved to second on lap seven. At this point Belliveau continued to pull away from the field but shortly after the halfway mark of the feature Pittman started to catch a noticeably slowing Belliveau. While Pittman was reeling in the leader Tony Shaw was fending off a stiff challenge for third by the #18 of Dick Lamotte. Kyle Pittman finally caught the slowing Belliveau with a little less than two laps to go and made the winning pass coming off turn four of the last lap with the checkers in sight to take the win in an exciting finish. Kyle Belliveau finished a disappointing second with Dick Lamotte finally getting by Tony Shaw on the last lap for third. Shaw was fourth with Adam Cunningham rounding out the top five.

Heat Race wins went to Ken Stridsburg in the 500cc's with Kyle Belliveau winning the 600cc Heat.

The next event on the calendar for the O'Reilly Auto Parts Granite State Mini Sprints is Saturday, June 3rd at The Bear Ridge Speedway in Bradford, VT.

Tanner Holm Wins on Autism Speaks Night at Deming Speedway

5/19/17

Everson, WA - Autism Speaks Night at Deming Speedway was a huge success, as the fans saw a great night of racing action and raised huge money for Autism Speaks. Tanner Holm was the big winner of the night, taking home an entertaining 600 wingless main event win. Chance Crum, Lane Taylor and Hayley Constance joined him in victory lane. Race night sponsors were Doyle Guffie’s Rallye Auto Sales, 92.9 KISM, Judd & Black Appliances, Washington Tractor, Shots 2 Go Espresso and Service Pro.

At the outset of the Speedmart Hoosier 600 Non Wing feature, Joe Constance and Spud Allen would battle side by side before Allen took control of the point on lap two. Sawyer Sorgenfrei rapidly closed on Allen and began threatening him for the lead with Tanner Holm advancing forward to make it a three car tango for the top spot. As the eighth lap clipped off, Holm had passed both Sorgenfrei and Allen up high to take the lead, but as the trip headed toward turn one, Allen flipped his car, causing a stoppage. As not all cars had completed the eighth lap, the lineup reverted to lap seven, where Sorgenfrei was ahead of Tanner. The race restarted with Sorgenfrei continuing to work low with Holm heading back to the cushion to build momentum. He built enough to rocket past Sawyer on the exit of turn four on lap 10, giving him the lead. The race clipped off seven more laps, with Evan Margeson moving past Sorgenfrei for second and running down Tanner when a caution flag halted the action. On the restart, Holm found his rhythm on the cushion again and drove to his first win of the year, with Margeson settling for second and Sorgenfrei taking third. Kyle Mitchell gained 11 spots to earn hard charger.

In the Shots 2 Go Espresso 1200 class, Chance Crum made things look easy en route to his second win of the year. Crum led all 25 laps of the main event without challenge to grab the victory, his first with a wing on after winning wingless earlier in the year. Seth Hespe raced his way to second with Jake Helsel coming home third. Hard charger honors went to Terry Lewis with five spots gained.

Heartbreak for Peyton Hagen turned to joy for Lane Taylor, who took home his first Deming Speedway winning the Mytrafficman.NET 600 restricted division. Hagen had led the first 17 laps with Taylor trailing him by about three car lengths when Hagen lost power. Taylor would take the lead and race away to his first win at the ⅙ mile clay oval, with Dakota Drake taking second and Colin Mackey racing home to third. Allison Johnson was the hard charger with eight spots gained.

Mitchell Helsel and Haley Constance had a major battle for the win the Kasey Kahne Junior Sprint division. Helsel had led since lap three and had a sizable lead when a caution flag flew on lap 10. This brought Constance right to the tail of Helsel, and on the restart, she began pressuring the two time feature winner. The two drivers went nose to tail until lap 19 when Constance worked inside of Helsel to take the lead from Mitchell and went on to the win. Helsel was second with Drake Hadlock rallying forward to take third. Constance also picked up hard charger honors with seven positions gained.

BCRA Midget Lite Results from Merced Speedway May 13, 2017

Thirteen  Midget Lites (& Lightning Sprints) signed in at the Merced Speedway on a cool May evening at the fast ¼ mile dirt track at the Merced County Fairgrounds.

The cars qualified with the 87 car of Charlie Caraccilo from Madera setting fast time of 12:488 followed by Craig Dillard from Oakdale at 12:589, and 3rd fast was long tow Bobby Micnowicz from Lomita with a 12:851.

The first heat saw Jeff Dyer take the lead on lap 1, and took the win over Caraccilo followed by Jim Riddell from Modesto.  The second heat was won by Dakota Albright in his fast 35jr car from Waterford followed by Mike Lange all the way from Lakewood, and Craig Dillard and Danika’Jo Parker from Oakdale.

The 25 lap main event was next and had Kayla Green from Sydney, AU on the pole in the Dan Foster 74 machine with Parker on the outside.  The track was now dry from the wind, and owners and drivers were seen making adjustments to their cars.  The first lap went smoothly as drivers were searching for grip on the changing track.  Caraccilo took the early lead passing several cars on the high side while Dillard, Riddell, and Dyer were in hot pursuit.  On lap 11, Albright spun exiting turn 4 bringing out the yellow flag.  This caution flag gave drivers a chance to move wings back or adjust shocks for the remainder of the race.  When the green came back out, Caraccilo continued his hot pace and lead the remaining laps while Dillard continued his close pursuit.  The real show during these last 10 or 12 laps was the determined high side run of Albright as he found speed on the top of the dry slick surface, making up a half lap to finish 3rd behind Dillard.  All three drivers were interviewed in front of the grandstands, while Referee Tim Kinser was patiently  waiting to conduct tech inspections.

All three cars passed inspection under the critical eye of Kinser.

Heat 1:  Dyer, C. Caraccilo, Riddell, Jeff Caracillo, Green……DNS: John Nelson #71 & Micnowicz #1K

Heat 2:  Albright, Lange, Dillard, Parker…DNS: T Downing #90 & Roy Moody #20d

MIDWEST LIGHTNING SPRINTS

Race Results -- May 13, 2017

Valley Speedway --  Grain Valley, MO

The Midwest Lightning Sprints invaded Valley Speedway Sat nite.  Car count seemed to be down in all classes.  Between the wreck on East bound I-70 (that had it closed for several hours) and the NASCAR race, they had an impact on Valley Speedway. If you had got caught up in the track shutdown of I-70, all you could do was sit. There were a couple of cars that came in after 7:30, but by then most of the heat races had been run. A BIG thank you goes out to our sponsors for 2017, Rod End Supply and Oskvig Accounting.

Heat 1

1st   9s      Merrill Lamb            Iola, KS

2nd    01      Bobby Layne            KC, MO

3rd    2      Jason Billups             Holt, MO

4th    94      Ryan Secrest             Wichita, KS

5th  25m   Tyler Miller              Gallatin, MO

Merrill would get the lead from the green and from there his was the chasee.  Ryan tried to get by him for a couple of laps.  Bobby would finally get by Ryan and then he would try Merrill for the rest of the race, but Merrill was just too strong in this heat race.  Merrill would hand car owner Chris Schofield his race first win.    

Feature                                   Start Pos.

1st   01      Bobby Layne            (2)

2n        2      Jason Billups            (3)

3rd     94      Ryan Secrest            (4)

4th     25m    Tyler Miller            (5)

5th   9s      Merrill Lamb            (1)

Bobby Jumped into the lead on the first turn.  Merrill had missed the set up for the feature and start falling back.  Jason tucked in behind Bobby to try and unseat him from his first place.  Ryan would give chase to the pair.  Bobby would hold off Jason’s strong challenges and would take the win.  Jason 2nd and Ryan 3rd.

The Midwest Lighting Sprints next race is on Sat nite May 20th at Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, MO.  The racing in the Midwest Lightning Sprints is fiercely competitive.  With low cost maintenance and motorcycle power, this is still the most economical way to go fast in a race car.  These cars are 1 second a lap faster than an A Mod or a Late Model.  New drivers/cars are coming out each week.  Contact the MLS for info.

 

 

 

DICKEY AND KEEFE GET CIVIL WAR SERIES WINS!
(Torrance, CA, May 12, 2017) When the California Lightning Sprint Car Series trekked north to Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico and the Placerville Speedway for the second and third rounds of the “Civil War Series” with the BCRA last weekend, a pair of surprise winners etched their names on the CLS victory ledger. Indiana native Chris “Crash” Dickey took home the winner’s trophy on Friday at Silver Dollar and Washington’s Zach Keefe did likewise on the tiny Placerville bull ring on Saturday.

Twenty-four cars showed up for the Chico opener and BCRA regular Craig Dillard of Oakdale stopped the clocks fastest in qualifying with a time of 13.694. Bellingham, Washington’s Dwayne Mackey was second fastest when he toured the famous dirt track in 13.857 and Lomita’s Bobby Michnowicz was third quickest at 13.914.

Rocklin’s Hunter Kinney, Danika’Jo Parker of Oakdale and Dakota Albright of Rutherford collected the checkered flags for winning the three heat races proceeding the main event.

Snohomish, Washington’s Seth Hespe started on the pole for the 20-lap main and beat outside front row starter Eric Greco of Palmdale to turn one on the opening go around. Moving from the eighth starting spot, Kinney took the lead away from Hespe before things slowed for a yellow due to a three-car crash on the front straight involving Parker, Mackey and Kayla Green of Sacramento on lap six.

The subsequent restart had the green turned on for a little more than a lap when a tangle at the head of the pack brought out a red and eliminated Kinney, CLS point leader Jarrett Kramer of Spring Valley and two-time CLS champ Brent Sexton of Lakeside.

After a lengthy delay to clean up the mess, the race was set to restart with second year CLS driver Greco leading. Dickey, who now lives in Murrieta but is planning on moving back to his native Indiana after retiring from the Navy in September, was in second. Once the green flag flew it stayed out all the way and the race was all Dickey. He passed Greco and drove the Pat Kelley prepared Zer03 Motorsports/Baselite/Wiretex/Henchcraft/2004 Yamaha 1000 to convincing win of more than five seconds. Albright got by Greco with a couple laps to go to finish second. Dillard claimed the third-place spot. Michnowicz, who got shuffled to the back after an opening lap scuffle, came home fourth with youngster Greco fifth.

Michnowicz was the main event “Hard Charger” picking up 11 spots from his 15th starting sport to his fourth-place finish.

For Dickey, it was his second ever CLS win and his first club win with a wing. His other victory came several years ago at a wingless race at Perris Auto Speedway.

Under threatening skies on Saturday at Placerville, 24 cars showed up for round #3 of the “Civil War Series.” Jared Gunderson copped the fast time on the 52-year-old track located in the Northern California foothills with a lap of 12.177. Dillard was second quick on the night at 12.224 and Kinney rounded out the top three turning in a lap of 12.231.

Fresh off his second place finish the night before in Chico, Albright won the first heat race. Sexton, with his car fixed from the Friday tangle, won the second heat race. Parker became the only double heat race winner of the two nights when she won the heat three.

The threatening skies finally opened up causing a lengthy delay in the show and track officials moved the CLS/BCRA main to the last race of the night. Once the 24-car field got on the track, it started raining once again. The rain let up slightly, but was still falling when the green flag started the main event. On a track that slicker than an ice rink due to the rain, drivers tip toed their way around just trying to survive to the finish. Amazingly, there was not a yellow flag until lap 11. That was necessitated when leader Charlie Caraccilo of Madera tangled with another car. That handed the lead to Keefe. There was only one more yellow after, but it did not stop the Arlington, Washington driver and he went on for the victory under the super slick conditions. Fellow Washington residents Hespe and Mackey place second and third. Northern California’s Albright and Dillard were fourth and fifth.

Second year CLS drive Aiden Lange of Lakewood picked up nine spots in the main event and was the “Hard Charger.”

After a forgettable weekend, Kramer saw his championship point lead dwindle to a mere 15 markers over second year CLS driver Nigh. Another CLS sophomore, Lange, climbed to third in the championship standings. Michnowicz is up to fourth. Greco made the biggest jump in the standings for the two-race weekend. He came in ranked 10th and left Placerville all the way up to fifth.

Despite missing the two-race weekend, Bermuda Dunes driver Ken Coulston is still the CLS leading rookie. However, Gardena’s Dominic Del Monte has closed to within 7-points of the top spot.

With only the October 8th date at Ventura left in the “Civil War Series,” Dillard has a two-point lead over Albright in the standings. Nigh, Lange and Kramer round out the top five.

Next up for the CLS will be the annual “Salute to Indy” with the USAC/CRA Sprint Cars and The PAS Senior & Young Gun Sprints at Perris Auto Speedway on May 27th. It will be the second USAC National points race for the CLS in 2017.

The California Lightning Sprint Car Series would like to thank the following sponsors for helping make the 2017 season possible: Christian Stover Foundation, Circle Track Performance, Cold Fire West, DK Fabrication, Extreme Muffler, Fast Undercar, Hoosier Tire, Keizer Wheels, Outlaw Wings, Racing Optics, Rod End Supply, Saldana Race Products, Sander Engineering, Speedmart, Speed Partz, Super Shocks, T Shirts by Timeless, Woodland Auto Display.

Here's the latest information from Mike Long regarding the upcoming USAC sanctioning

Thank you to all for the strong participation in the last three conference calls. We have accomplished our goals and created a foundation to move forward with. To recap where we are, the updated rules are attached. These will now be packaged as a National rule book and redistributed when completed.

I want to thank Levi Jones for spending time with us to answer questions and announce the $10K points fund for 2017. USAC specifics are:

1. Individual groups/clubs will maintain internal control of their series, including but not limited to all financials, tech, procedural calls (line ups) and scheduling

2. Racers will not be required to join USAC and will serve no penalty for not doing so

a. Only USAC registered drivers will be eligible for National Points in sanctioned event.

    i.  Registration will open Jan. 1, 2017

b. Points will be awarded for actual finishing position only.

    i. Points are weighted by total car count per race

c. The drivers membership with USAC would provide them with the extra participant accident insurance

     i. Membership fee is $150 annually

3. Groups / clubs, with registered drivers, will be required to schedule a minimum of 10 USAC sanctioned races per season

a. Groups are permitted to hold events outside of USAC sanction

b.Sanctioned races will be noted upon issue of season schedule

4. Tracks will communicate and deal with each series directly

a. Any participating track would need to supply the group a valid Certificate of Insurance (COI) for a 1 million dollar general liability policy covering the entire year. All scheduled tracks will have their insurance provider email this to Levi at USAC.  

5. Points fund breakdown (thank you all for your ideas – I merged them below)

1. $3000

2. $2000

3. $1500

4. $800

5. $700

6. $600

7. $500

8. $400

9. $300

10. $200

6. Top three finishing positions will be recognized at USAC Night of Champions banquet in Indianapolis during PRI show every December.

We still have a few more things to iron out. I will be in communication with Levi and look forward to seeing you all next Saturday morning at the Museum of American Speed at 9am.
