Jamie Mills Back In Stride At Delaware Speedway

By CHARLIE BROWN

DELMAR, DE – Former three time track champion, Jamie Mills made up for a mediocre opening night performance as he drove to a definitive win in Saturday night’s Kyle Dixon Memorial at the Delaware International Speedway.

Scott VanGorder jumped out the early lead in the 25 lap NAPA Big Block main with Jordan Watson, who has moved back to the Big Blocks after two championships in the AC Delco crate modifieds running in second. Watson moved on top on lap three and one lap later, Mills, who started in sixth dropped VanGorder to third.

By lap 11 Mills had run down Watson as H.J. Bunting took over the third spot. Lap 13 proved to be unlucky for Watson as he lost oil pressure and pulled to the infield with Mills taking over the lead. The only yellow of the race would fly on lap 15 when both Dana Walker and Drew Simmons slowed.

Bunting would not be able to mount a serious challenge in the closing laps as Mills sped to the checkered. Bunting would hold off Matt Jester for second with Beau Wilkins taking fourth and Brad Trice coming on strong in the closing laps for fifth. Heats were won by Walker and Mills.

“The track was a little faster than I like to see it,” said Mills. “But the motor held on and I’m here in Victory Lane.”

NAPA Big Block Modified Finish: 1. Jamie Mills; 2. HJ Bunting; 3. Matt Jester; 4. Beau Wilkins; 5 Brad Trice; 6. Scott VanGorderl 7. Shawn Ward; 8. Bobby Watkins; 9. Michael White; 10. Dana Walker; 11. Drew Simmons; 12. Jordan Watson

 
Manmiller And Umbenhauer Get Second Wins Fo Season At Grandview Speedway

BECHTELSVILLE, PA. 

Last season at Grandview Speedway Doug Manmiller was only able to muster up one feature victory to his credit in the NASCAR Modified division. On Saturday night he won his second feature race of the season and showed that he is planning to be a factor in the chase for the point title. Defending champion Jared Umbenhauer drove to his second win of the season in the Sportsman division while past champion Chuck Schutz got his first win of the season in the Late Model feature race.

The Shoemakersville, Pa. leadfoot didn’t have an easy task claiming the win in the 30-lap NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Modified feature. Manmiller battled with Kevin Hirthler starting on the sixth lap as the pair weaved through lapped traffic later on. Manmiller quickly dove underneath Hirthler for the lead on the 28th lap after Hirthler made contact with the backstretch wall and with one lap to go Manmiller bounced off the fourth turn inside guard rail with Jeff Strunk in pursuit. Manmiller hung on for the win to put the Josh Biever-owned No. 46 in victory lane. Manmiller commented that the lap cars worked to his advantage on the multi-grooved track when they switched from the inside lane to the high lane. He also picked up an additional $250 from T.P. Trailers, Limerick.

Chuck Schutz claimed his first 25-lap NASCAR Late Model feature in the Ty Zeigler-owned No. ONE. The division recently acquired Bernheisel Race Cars as a major sponsor. Schutz, a bit dejected in the winner’s circle since while he battled for second with defending point champion Jason Miller they collided. Miller spun, collected the first turn wall and was through for the night. But as racing goes “things happen.” T.P. Trailers awarded the winner with a $100 bonus.

Jared Umbenhauer, behind the wheel of the Barry Bashore-owned No. 5, scored back-to-back victories in the 25-lap NASCAR Sportsman feature as he was able to hold off Brett Kressley’s challenges.

Racers had high praise for track conditions on Saturday night.

Racing action will return to Grandview on Saturday, April 26th at 7 p.m. with another exciting tripleheader card featuring the NASCAR 358 Modifieds, Late Models and Sportsman stock cars.

Gary Tomkins Wins Canandaigua Speedway Opener

Canandaigua, NY – Saturday, April 19, 2014 – It was a clear but chilly night at Canandaigua Motorsports Park as fans gathered for the 4th annual Jan Corcoran Memorial event. Paying $6400 to the winner, the 64 lap Big Block Modified main was star-studded as the who’s who of DIRTcar Modified racers converged at the Land of Legends. Promoters Jeremie and Lori Corcoran enjoyed a very successful start to the 2014 season thanks to the many fans that filled the grandstands.

Gary Tomkins of Clifton Springs, NY kicked off his season on a winning note as he captured the big win last Saturday night. Tomkins used lapped traffic to his advantage and took the point position away from Steve Paine on lap twenty. Tomkins would hold off a hard charging Billy Dunn through the late stages to claim one of the biggest events of the season. Tomkins piloted his Bicknell chassis sponsored by Pole Position Raceway, Fox’s Auto, and Brewer Construction to a very popular win. “My hats off to the crew – man they worked their butts off to get the car done,” commented Tomkins. “Wow the car was just great.”

2013 Syracuse 200 winner Billy Dunn finished in the runner up position after starting ninth. Jimmy Phelps appeared to be the fastest car on the track in the final laps as he came from deep in the pack to claim the third position followed by defending track champion Matt Sheppard. Billy Decker was the hard charger as he advanced from his twenty-fourth starting position to score a top five finish.

Billy Pauch Two-for-Two At New Egypt

NEW EGYPT, NJ- April 14, 2014- Defending champion Billy Pauch of Frenchtown, NJ won for the second time in as many weeks Saturday as he captured the 30 lap Modified main event at New Egypt Speedway. Pauch started 15th and charged to the front halfway through the feature in route to his 118 th win at the central Jersey speed plant.

Tim Apgar and Willie Osmun brought the field to the start with Apgar taking command. Apgar lead the first 8 laps, surviving several restarts with Osmun glued to his back bumper applying relentless pressure. Meanwhile, everyone was watching a very quick David Van Horn charge around the outside of everyone as he moved from his 12 th starting spot into third, with Pauch right behind.

The lap 8 restart proved to be a pivotal moment in the event as Osmun fired before the new turn 3 starting point causing him to be penalized 2 spots for jumping the start. Under the track’s new 2014 rule designed to keep the show moving for the fans, jumping the start will not cause a caution flag to appear, but rather the driver will be penalized the next time the event is slowed or stopped. Osmun charged into the lead recing under a 2 car penalty as Pauch quickly darted into second followed by Van Horn.

Osmun and Pauch slowly pulled away from the field as Pauch worked the outside groove around Osmun, whittling away at his lead. Each lap Pauch would appear to have made the pass, only to have Osmun shoot back by him coming off of turn 4.  Finally at halfway Pauch found enough momentum to make the pass and took control og the race. Osmun stayed within 5 car lengths of Pauch, but was still racing under the two car penalty as the race remained green.

The race went non-stop the final 22 laps with Pauch winning for the second straight week recording his 8 th career Small-Block Modified win at NES. David Van Horn made a late race charge catching and passing Osmun on the final turn to finish second. Osmun crossed the line third, however with the end of the race being the first stoppage, his two car penalty was finally enforced causing him to officially finish fifth. Ryan Godown ran a very steady race thru traffic ending in a third place finish, and Billy Pauch Jr. came home fourth.           

Tim Tanner, Jr. of Ivyland, PA won his first ever season opener in over 20 years of racing as he took top honors in the New Egypt RaceSavers 305 Sprint Car 20 lapper. Tanner started 6 th and battled thru some of the most intense racing of the evening as 8 different drivers battled for the top three spots, many times racing 3-wide as they changed up the first 8 starting spots every lap! The one constant throught all of this great racing was Jimmy Carpenter as held off every challenger for the first 14 laps. With 6 laps remaining Tanner went to the outside and completed the winning pass around Carpenter as he took the lead. Once in Front Tanner drove away, winning by almost a full straightaway. The racing behind for second remained intense until the checkered flag fell with Jimmy Carpenter holding off challenges at every turn to finish second. 11 th starting Joe Lord, 14 th starting Chuck Palmucci and Rick Stief completed the top five.

Technical Update For BRP 9310

 
Justin Haers earns first career Super DIRTcar Series win

BARBERVILLE, FLA. - Wednesday, February 19, 2014 - There's a first time for everything. For Super DIRTcar Series driver Justin Haers, of Phelps, N.Y., that time was Wednesday night during DIRTcar Nationals presented by Summit Racing Equipment. Haers picked up his first-ever series victory in a 30-lap nail-biter at Volusia Speedway Park.

"I'm so excited. This has been a long time coming," said the Super DIRTcar Series regular of ten years. "We've been close so many times, even down here last year. It's just awesome to get a win down here. We came down here just to be competitive, and to get a win is just awesome."

Haers started his night out right, timing second-fastest overall and picking up the win in his heat, claiming the top starting spot for the 30 lap feature. The Phelps Cement Products No. 3 took the lead at the green flag over Big-Block Modified rookie Anthony Perrego.

A lap-2 caution slowed the pace early in the race with Mario Clair off-pace. Clair pulled into the pits and Haers reclaimed the lead when the field returned to green. He quickly started to pull away from the pack, leaving Dale Planck, Pete Britten and defending series champion Brett Hearn in a three-wide battle for third.

Britten charged ahead from the battle in lap 4 and pulled up beside Perrego in second. He made the pass in lap 6, and by the lap 7 "Batman" Britten was closing in on Haers in the lead. Behind them, Billy Pauch darted between teammates Matt Sheppard and Jimmy Phelps for sixth.

In lap 9, Britten swung around Haers in turn two and cruised ahead of pack. Haers learned his lesson, and, with Britten high on the outside, Haers slid past him in lap 12.

"Peter passed me for the lead. He passed me on the top and I said, man, I've got to get up there and get up on the wheel," said Haers, who garnered two podium finishes out of four races last year during DIRTcar Nationals presented by Summit Racing Equipment. "When I got up there, there was just so much more traction on the top. I was able to reel him back in, and I was able to roll him on the bottom of one and two and clear him on the back stretch."

With the rest of the race caution free, Haers was left battling lapped traffic as he pulled further away from his runners up. Perrego, who sat behind the wheel of a Big-Block Modified for the first time Tuesday during practice, fell to third mid-race, but kept his cool and deftly maneuvered lapped traffic. He closed in on Britten in lap 19 and slid to the outside to pass him in lap 20. Perrego fumbled with 5 laps to go, but recovered quickly enough not to lose his position.

"I almost spun around there. I was a little nervous," Perrego said about the incident. "We got into (turn) one there, I was just trying to keep up with the lapped cars, and I got into one a little hard."

"It was just an awesome race. I'm so excited. It's just a great way to start the season," said Haers of Wednesday's race, the 2014 debut for the Super DIRTcar Series. "Tonight we were really good and, I told my guys, 'we're going to get a gator this year, we came so close last year."

Perrego came in second, and was pleased with his first Big-Block Modified feature race finish.

"This is amazing, to come out here and finish second out of the gate," said Perrego, who successfully battled veteran racer Hearn in his heat race.

Pauch, another seasoned driver, made the right moves to finish third. In lap 27, he swerved to the outside around Planck for the position and held on for the final three laps.

"We moved up pretty good, and for my team, coming all the way down and running with these guys, that's a pretty good finish," said Pauch, who hails from Frenchtown, N.Y. "My guys worked at it hard and I think we have some notes to go from tomorrow."

Matt Sheppard, of Waterloo, N.Y., took his new Heinke-Baldwin Racing / FX Caprara Car Companies ride from its starting spot in tenth to fourth by the end of the feature race's 30 laps. Planck, of Homer N.Y., finished fifth. Rounding out the top ten are Stewart Friesen in sixth, Peter Britten in seventh, Brett Hearn in eighth, Jimmy Phelps in ninth, and Jamie Mills in tenth.
