Eliason, Ryan and Schmidt Crowned Clay Cup Champions

Three fantastic nights of racing culminated with Cory Eliason, Liam Ryan and Eli Schmidt being crowned the 2014 Clay Cup Nationals Champions at Deming Speedway. Eliason was the first ever repeat winner in the Speedmart Hoosier 600 division, while Ryan made it three in a row in the Shots 2 Go Espresso 1200 class and Schmidt won his first title in the Mytrafficman.NET 600 Restricted division.

Drama played out all over the Speedmart Hoosier 600 Open division A Main event. Shaun Holtorf started on the pole and quickly established a huge lead, racing away to a full straightaway advantage while rolling the lower groove. It seemed like an easy Saturday night stroll for Holtorf until disaster struck on lap 13. As he entered traffic, Holtorf and Jacob Brown made heavy contact coming out of corner four. Both cars stayed under power, but Holtorf sustained heavy damage to his top wing, mangling the left sideboard and knocking the center section askew to the left. Concurrent to the incident with Holtorf and Brown, Kevin Wilkinson spun in turn two, creating the events first caution. Holtorf would restart with Robbie Price hot on his tail and Cory Eliason in tow. Shaun’s #19 looked surprisingly good in one and two, but suffered a bad aero push in turns three and four, which allowed Price to begin threatening Shaun on the high side. Unfortunately for Robbie, he would overshoot the exit of turn four on lap 19 and spin out, relegating him to the back of the pack. Now Eliason sat in second on the restart, and the 2006 Clay Cup Champion began his attack on the high side. On lap 22, Cory carried his forward momentum off the top of turn two and into the lead. Holtorf hung tough on the bottom but gradually lost ground to Cory he continued to fight the handle on his car in turn three and four. With the race winding to a close, it looked as if Eliason would have an easy path to his second clay cup win, until Holtorf caught a break. 

All red flags are “open reds” at Deming Speedway and as the field completed lap 37, Brock Hallett flipped in turn one and caused a red. Crews flooded to Holtorf’s car with a new top wing, and managed to just get a new wing on his car by the time the open red ended, giving Shaun three laps to try and work some magic. On the restart, Holtorf would give it his all on the bottom, shooting in deep down low in turn two, but it was not to be as Eliason made a perfect set of corners to reestablish his lead. From there, Holtorf stayed within two car lengths of Eliason over the final few circuits but could not challenge for the win as the Fresno, CA driver took home the big trophy, the $7500 winner’s share of the purse and a brand new rear end squaring tool from Tru-Square. Holtorf collected his career best finish at Clay Cup in second and Chase Schmidt filled the podium with a third place run.

Liam Ryan joined Brock Lemley as one of two drivers to win three Shots 2 Go Espresso Clay Cup Championships in a row with a wire to wire run for the win on Saturday night. Ryan, from Langley, BC, was flawless all night in the Rob Braun owned #72, as he took the initial lead and quickly stretched out to a large advantage. Liam had lapped 4 cars by the first caution at lap 21 for Nate Vaughn and on the restart, powered away to another big lead. As Jared Peterson and Jared Gundersen feverishly raced each other for second and the slower traffic in between them and Ryan, Liam just put more track space and more slower cars between him and his chasers. Jake Helsel spun, causing a yellow on lap 28 that would bunch the field up one more time, but Ryan again was perfect on the restart and rolled away to his third win in a row at the Clay Cup Nationals in the 1200 class. Peterson and Gundersen had a highly entertaining battle for second which Peterson ended up winning, with Gundersen collecting a podium finish for the third straight year with his third place run.

The main event of the night was the Mytrafficman.NET 600 Restricted feature, and Eli Schmidt led every lap of the 30 lap main event to become the second winner in the division’s short history at Clay Cup. Eli stretched to an early lead but was in danger as he approached slower cars, as Kaitlyn Hammer had rolled to with a couple car lengths of Eli before the yellow flag flew for inaugural winner Jesse Schlotfeldt on lap 14. With clean air ahead of him, the Abbottsford, BC youth once again put distance between himself and Hammer on his way to collecting the win. Hammer would settle for second and Cody Hogarth race into third.


Drivers Win from Deep in the Field on Clay Cup Night 2

Fully inverted mains inevitably end up with great racing, and the big crowd attending night two of the Clay Cup Nationals at Deming Speedway agreed on Friday night, as winners from the three divisions came from deep in the fields to win. Jared Peterson capped the night with a victory in the Shots 2 Go Espresso 1200 division from 20th place. Shaun Holtorf won the Speedmart Hoosier 600 Main Event from 13th and Eli Schmidt won the Mytrafficman.NET 600 Restricted main from 19th.

The Shots 2 Go Espresso 1200 division ran last on the evening, with a very slick track facing them. At the drop of the green, Alex Hantel jumped into the lead and held it for the first seven circuits before getting crossed up in turn four and losing the lead to Dwayne Mackey. With Mackey on point, the eyes of the crowd turned to Jared Peterson who after starting 20th, had rapidly advanced up the field in the Doug Rutz owned #8r car. With Mackey working into traffic, Peterson blazed his way up the field, weaving high and low to pass cars and putting himself into second when disaster struck the leader. Mackey was caught up in a spinning Alex Hantel in the high reaches of corner one and slid to a stop, handing the lead to Peterson. From there, the Stanwood WA native raced away to the win and by virtue of a huge points night, guaranteed himself a front row start for the Clay Cup Finale on Saturday night. Zach Keefe was second and Jason Bloodgood ran third. Liam Ryan set quick time. Heat winners were Jared Gundersen, Brock Lemley and Clennon Holloway.

The Speedmart Hoosier 600 Open division saw Shaun Holtorf catfish around the bottom of the speedway from 13th all the way to the lead on lap 24 en route to the win. Holtorf, who entered the night with the highest point score from the previous evening, put together another great scoring night as he worked the bottom of the speedway steadily forward until he closed right up to race leader Spud Allen with just a few laps left. Holtorf held to what had got him to the front, the bottom of the track, and as Allen lost forward bite on the high side, Holtorf took the lead as the white flag flew en route to grabbing the win. Allen would settle for second after leading the first 23 laps. Austin Sheridan was third. Liam Ryan set quick time. Chance Crum, Jared Peterson, Robbie Price and Dustin O’Brien won the heats.

Eli Schmidt faced a tall task in the Mytrafficman.NET 600 restricted A Main – a 19th place starting spot in the A Main after setting quick time on the night – Clay Cup preliminary night main events are fully inverted by time. At the drop of the green flag, Schmidt set to his task, moving forward on the field around the bottom groove. One by one, Eli worked his way to the front, taking advantage of a perfectly setup race car and watching lesser experienced drivers make mistakes and get into the slick middle of the track. With a couple of yellow flags and restarts helping his cause, Eli had worked into second by lap 19 and on lap 22, he found the bottom opening up to get underneath race leader Carson Trigueiro to take the lead and eventual win, making for a monster point night for the Abbottsford, BC driver. Trigueiro took second and JJ Thomas was third. Heat race winners were Dylan Resch, Katie Turner and Spencer Constance.

Clay Cup rules specify drivers choose their best score from one night or the other, and that sequences the lineups for the Saturday night main events. In the Speedmart Hoosier 600 division, Shaun Holtorf and Robbie Price will be on the front row for the main event. Jared Peterson and Liam Ryan will make up the front row of the Shots 2 Go Espresso 1200 main event. Eli Schmidt and Kaitlyn Hammer were the top point earners of the 600 restricted class and will make up the front row of that feature.


Opening Night Wins to Hallett, Ryan and Watkins on Night One of 2014 Clay Cup

Night one of the 2014 Clay Cup Nationals is in the books and at the end of a fantastic night of racing, Adelaide, South Australia’s Brock Hallett stood in victory lane after winning the opening night feature at Deming Speedway. Joining Hallett in victory lane were Liam Ryan and Riley Watkins.

Teams Beat Back Weather for Fast Night at Deming Speedway

Wet weather would not stop racing on our countries birthday, as the teams and fans of Deming Speedway endured persisting light rain to get the bulk of Pepsi / Clean Crawls night in at the track. After the Kasey Kahne Junior Sprints timed in, the wet weather hit, forcing Deming officials into a holding pattern while waiting for an opportunity to resume the night. The decision was made to cancel qualifying and line the remaining divisions up off time trials. The weather relented around 7pm, and the track was deemed ready to run heats by 715. From there, the night blazed by with the final flag falling at 904pm.
In the evening’s finale, Chance Crum took his third feature win of the season in the Speedmart Hoosier 600 Open division. Crum led every lap, finishing in front of Liam Ryan and Brock Lemley at the drop of the checkered flag. Heat race winners were Robbie Price, Kaitlyn Hammer and Joe Constance.
Clennon Holloway and Liam Ryan staged a great battle in front of the field in the Shots 2 Go Espresso 1200 division. Holloway led the first 18 laps while Liam worked to show his nose underneath him. Holloway eventually opened up too much of the bottom groove, and that’s all Ryan needed to dart underneath him and into the lead for good on the 19th circuit. Holloway would end up second with Tyson Cross third. Cross and Holloway were the winners in heat race action.

Tanner Holm used a brave moved amongst heavy traffic to pick up the win in the Mytrafficman.net 600 Restricted division. Holm was racing amongst leader Cody Hogarth and Eli Schmidt as well as some slower cars when, like Moses at the Red Sea, the path through the middle of the track opened wide up. Holm drove right through the center of turn one and two, and with Hogarth and Schmidt committed to grooves where slower cars were, shot into the lead on lap 16. From there, he raced away to the win, his first of the season, followed Schmidt in second and Hogarth third. Heat winners were Schmidt, Darius Walker-Perkins and Ashleigh Johnson.

In the Kasey Kahne Junior Sprints, Peyton Hagen swept the evening’s activity by taking the lead from Tyson Lemley on lap nine and streaking away to his fourth win of 2014.

July 4th at the Bartholomew County Fairgrounds was the setting for the much anticipated first Non Wing MMSA Lightning Sprint Car race of the season.

There was a record setting field of 32 cars signed in for the racing action.

First on tap and also a first for this season was single car qualifying where Collin Ambrose from Owensboro, Kentucky set the fast time.

The first race of the night was the four lap trophy dash which was won by Drew Dorsett from Monrovia, Indiana.

There was a full night of racing with four heat races taking the top four from each heat race into the A Main. Heat race winners were Collin Ambrose, Andy Bradley, Doug Jones and Drew Dorsett.

The B Main was without a doubt the most exciting race of the night. Former USAC and POWRI midget driver AJ Felker came from the back of the 15 car field to finish first place followed by Colin Parker, Howard McCormick and Scotty Orme for fourth and final transfer position.

After the B Main the drivers took some time to have a meet and greet with the fans. There was a long line of fans to meet the drivers and to get autographs and pictures of their favorite drivers.

The 25 lap A Main got off to a rocky start when one of the cars up front slowed down causing a chain reaction accident on the first lap. As a result Andy Bradley ended up collecting a tire on the inside of turn one causing his car to flip several times and bringing out the red flag. Andy was able to climb out of his car but, he was done for the night. On the restart Jim Gardner was able to set the pace for the feature. Jim went on to take the checker flag and never looked back but, unfortunately Jim Garnder fell victim to a technical rules infraction. The eventual winner was Collin Ambrose of Owensville, KY taking his third victory of the season. Second place went to Nathan Mensendiek from Columbus, Indiana and third place was AJ Felker from Charlestown, Indiana who also was awarded the hard charger award.

Next event for the MMSA Lighting Sprints will also be a “non wing” race taking place on July 12 that Twin Cities Raceway Park in North Vernon, Indiana. For additional schedule information please check out our web site at www.midwestminisprints.com .
