WORLD OF OUTLAWS SPRINT CAR SERIES (32 entries)

Donny Schatz moved into a tie atop the 410 Sprint Car win list with Jason Sides by winning his 3rd World of Outlaws Sprint Car series feature at Ohsweken. Schatz and Shane Stewart fought for the lead for 2/3’s of the race before Schatz finally got by and cruised to the win. Stewart settled for 2nd, followed by James McFadden, Kerry Madsen, and David Gravel. The race was red-flagged twice, as Paul McMahan, Jason Sides, and Kraig Kinser were involved in an early crash, and Jesse Costa’s car caught fire on lap 9. All drivers were uninjured, and the McMahan and Sides crews worked hard to get their cars repaired and back into the race.

WORLD OF OUTLAWS SPRINT CAR SERIES RETURNS JULY 29, PLUS NORTHERN SUMMER NATIONALS “RACE FOR THE CURE” JULY 28!

Ohsweken, Ontario – July 24, 2014 – Two of the biggest events of the Ohsweken Speedway season are quickly approaching, with the Burger Barn Northern Summer Nationals “Race for the Cure” set for Monday, July 28, and the Arrow Express Six Nations Showdown featuring the World of Outlaws Sprint Car series scheduled for Tuesday, July 29.

ARROW EXPRESS SIX NATIONS SHOWDOWN
Arrow Express returns as presenting sponsor of the Six Nations Showdown featuring the World of Outlaws Sprint Car series, Affordable Towing & Recovery Thunder Stocks, and Gale’s Auto Aftermarket Bombers on Tuesday, July 29.

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car series is the world’s premier winged sprint car series. The 2014 WoO schedule includes 93 events at 52 different tracks across 24 American states and 3 Canadian provinces. The tour’s visit to Ohsweken on Tuesday, July 29 will conclude a three-race eastern Canadian swing which begins at Drummondville, Quebec on Saturday, July 26 and continues at Cornwall, Ontario on Sunday, July 27.

A tight championship chase is ongoing at the top of the WoO standings, with North Dakota’s Donny Schatz, Oklahoma driver Daryn Pittman, and Paul McMahan of Tennessee all in the hunt. Also among the drivers expected are Indiana’s Joey Saldana, Steve Kinser, and Kraig Kinser, Australian Kerry Madsen, California driver Brad Sweet, Tennessee’s Jason Sides, Pennsylvanians Cody Darrah, Logan Schuchart, and Jacob Allen, and Connecticut driver David Gravel.

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car series has competed at Ohsweken on 8 occasions dating back to 2007. Jason Sides won that first event on July 25, 2007, and also recorded wins at Ohsweken on July 29, 2009, and July 30, 2010. Jason Meyers won at Ohsweken on July 28, 2009, Donny Schatz was the winner on August 1, 2010 and July 30, 2013, and Tony Stewart took the checkered flag on both July 27, 2011, and July 31, 2012.

This year’s Six Nations Showdown takes on added significance, as part of the “Salute to the King” farewell tour for 20-time World of Outlaws champion Steve Kinser. The Bloomington, Indiana driver is stepping away from racing full time with the World of Outlaws Sprint Car series at the conclusion of the 2014 season.

The Affordable Towing & Recovery Thunder Stocks will be joined by the Gale’s Auto Aftermarket Bombers as support divisions for the Six Nations Showdown. Karl Sault bested a talented field of 39 cars to claim the Thunder Stock win at the Six Nations Showdown last year, with another large car count expected for this year’s event.

The Bombers competed during the Northern Summer Nationals event last year, but shift to Tuesday’s Six Nations Showdown this year, with defending champion Dusty DeBoer leading the way.

BURGER BARN NORTHERN SUMMER NATIONALS

Grand River Power Sports, 21st Century Signs, Brant News, and the Hamilton Health Sciences Foundation have partnered with Ohsweken Speedway to make the Burger Barn Northern Summer Nationals a “Race For The Cure” event in support of the Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre Foundation. Drivers and teams are collecting pledges for this special event, with prizes from Twenty First Century Signs for those who collect the most.

The July 28 event includes the Corr/Pak Merchandising 360 Sprint Cars, Strickland’s GMC Crate Sprint Cars, HRW Automotive Mini Stocks, and the only appearance of the season at Ohsweken for the DIRTcar 358 “Small Block” Modifieds.

The Corr/Pak Merchandising 360 Sprint Car portion of the Northern Summer Nationals event will include a 25 lap feature, with a $3,000 winner’s prize, valuable championship points, and a guaranteed starting spot in the 10th annual Canadian Sprint Car Nationals feature on the line. Three-time Canadian Sprint Car Nationals winner Shane Stewart of Pittsboro, Indiana won last year’s Northern Summer Nationals feature over Jessica Zemken and Dain Naida. Stewart is one of several invaders expected to compete in these special events, along with 2008 Canadian Sprint Car Nationals winner Wayne Johnson, Australian star James McFadden, and more…

DIRTcar 358 Modifieds returned to Ohsweken last season for the first time in 5 years, and put on a show with plenty of 3-wide action. Many top drivers and teams from the Niagara area and beyond are expected to be in attendance, including current Merrittville Speedway championship points leader Chad Brachman, who won last year’s Northern Summer Nationals feature over Mat Williamson and Mark D’Ilario. The event will pay the feature winner $1,500, and will count towards the 358 Modified Mr. DIRTcar championship, which takes into account a driver’s best 16 finishes between January 1st and Labor Day. Points standings and other information on the Mr. DIRTcar championship is available at www.DIRTcar.com

The Strickland’s GMC Crate Sprint Cars will be a part of the Northern Summer Nationals event for the first time on July 28. The first year division continues to grow as the season moves along, and has seen plenty of competition. Feature wins have already been claimed by 4 different drivers (Ryan Hunsinger, Aaron Turkey, Jake Brown, and Brad Herron), while 9 different drivers have at least one podium finish so far.

The HRW Automotive Mini Stocks will again take part in the Northern Summer Nationals this year. The division has been dominated by Tyler Lafantaisie so far this season, and he heads into the Northern Summer Nationals as the odds-on favourite. Lafantaisie finished 3rd in the 2013 Northern Summer Nationals Mini Stock feature, behind drivers – Davey Boughton and Laura Hughes – who have moved to other divisions this year.

CORR/PAK MERCHANDISING 360 SPRINT CARS (19 entries)

Jim Huppunen and Dave Dykstra led the 19-car Corr/Pak Merchandising 360 Sprint Car feature to the green flag. Dykstra grabbed the early lead off the initial start, shuffling Huppunen back to second. American invaders Wayne Johnson of Knoxville, IA and Shane Stewart of Pittsboro, IN battled for the third position early after starting side-by-side in the second row.

Johnson battled to take the lead from Dykstra on lap six and never looked back. Dykstra faded in the middle portion of the race as Huppunen ran in second ahead of Stewart. Johnson grew his lead to nearly a half lap as he ran through lapped traffic in the caution-free race. Johnson set a new track record for a 20-lap 360 sprint car feature at 4:55.961 en route to the victory. Stewart used a lapped car to get by Huppunen on the final corner and steal the second spot.

STRICKLAND’S GMC CRATE SPRINT CARS (14 entries)

Mark Czuba and Tyler Hendricks started on the front row for the Strickland’s GMC Crate Sprint Cars feature. Czuba took full advantage of his starting position and assumed top spot on the opening lap. Czuba carved out the top line ahead of second-place runner Jake Brown. Brown tried feverishly to catch Czuba in the first half, but couldn’t gain any ground until a lap eight caution when the front end broke on Paul Lang’s No.6L.

Czuba got the best of the restart and outdueled Brown. A pair of late race cautions after spins by Derek Westbrook gave Brown his best shot at the lead while running the top groove. It didn’t matter though as Czuba was too strong on the bottom and held off Brown and Hendricks for his first career sprint car victory.

AFFORDABLE TOWING & RECOVERY THUNDER STOCKS (34 entries)

Derek Liverance and Jonny Lowenberg led the 24-car field to the green flag for the 20-lap Affordable Towing and Recovery Thunder Stocks A-Main. Lowenberg grabbed a commanding lead in the early laps, but suffered problems on lap three that ended his night. Dave Bailey assumed the lead and set sail in front of the field only to be reeled in by a caution at lap seven.

Bailey was not to be denied victory on this night however, as he led the final 18 laps and earned a parking spot in Mobil 1 victory lane. The best efforts of second-place finisher Dave Silverthorne weren’t enough to put him within striking distance. Chris Dickie battled to a third-place finish after starting 17th.

HRW AUTOMOTIVE MINI STOCKS (34 entries)

Rob Twitchett and Chris Ryckman led the HRW Automotive Mini Stock field to start the 15-lap feature. A pair of early race incidents slowed the pace. Jeremy May got the race lead on lap six, but saw it evaporate one corner later when Tyler Lafantaisie took over the top spot. Two laps later, Lafantaisie’s race ended when the car appeared to break a tie-rod in turn four. That left the lead to Kathi Dickie for the restart.

Dickie worked the bottom groove to protect the lead, but it wasn’t enough to hold off Mark Bazuin who took over the point with five laps to go. Bazuin separated himself from a dramatic battle for second between Dickie and B-Main winner Jason Lungaro. Lungaro managed to get by Dickie to finish second while Bazuin checked out up front.

GALE’S AUTO AFTERMARKET BOMBERS (19 entries)

Amy Fitzsimmons and Gillian Hils led the 16-car Gale’s Auto Aftermarket Bomber feature to green. Hils jumped out to an early lead on the outside and grew it to six car lengths over fourth-place starter Ashton Reekie. Joe DeBoer charged through the field from sixth and entered the conversation for the race lead.

Just after the halfway point, Hils got stuck behind a lapped car on the outside, allowing DeBoer to take the lead on the bottom of the frontstretch. DeBoer expanded the gap out front of Hils in the final laps of the caution-free race to earn the victory over Hils and Reekie.

CORR/PAK MERCHANDISING 360 SPRINT CARS (22 entries)

Jeremy Hughes and Shane Ross started on the front row for the 20 lap 360 Sprint Car feature, but the race was quickly halted when Dave Dykstra went for a rough ride in turn 1. Ross took the lead early after the restart, while Mitch Brown moved into 2nd to set the stage for a race-long fight for the win. Ross opened a lead over Brown, with Keith Dempster holding 3rd. Jim Huppunen and Paige Polyak both moved past Dempster just after the halfway mark and began a spirited joust for the 3rd spot, while Brown started to cut into the lead Ross had built. Brown was within a car length of Ross several times in traffic before a yellow flag came out when Todd Hoddick’s right rear tire exploded on lap 15.

Ross restarted with the lapped car of Adam West between himself and Mitch Brown, but Brown was quickly able to get by West and go after Ross. A move to the middle groove paid off for Brown, as he was able to get around Ross exiting turn 2 on lap 18 and go on to an emotional win. Friday’s race was the first for the Browns since losing family patriarch and local racing icon Harold Brown to cancer on July 13. Ross settled for the runner-up spot, followed by Huppunen, Polyak, and Jeremy Hughes with a career-best 5th place.

STRICKLAND’S GMC CRATE SPRINT CARS (13 entries)

Tyler Hendricks led the first 5 laps of the Crate Sprint Car feature before Aaron Turkey blasted around the outside groove to take the lead and go on to his 4th feature win of the season. Turkey did have to keep the field behind him during several late race restarts, which benefited Ryan Hunsinger, as the championship points leader vaulted from 5th to 2nd over the last 2 laps of the race. Josh Shantz finished 3rd, followed by Paul Lang, and Jake Brown.

AFFORDABLE TOWING & RECOVERY THUNDER STOCKS (44 entries)

A huge field of 44 Thunder Stocks signed in to go after the prestigious win in the Brock Leonard Memorial 50, and an $1,800 payday thanks to Gale’s Auto Aftermarket. Time trials, heat races, and the B-Main whittled the starting field to 28 for the 50 lap A-Feature. Dave Bailey, Wyatt Van Wart, and Lee Winger eventually became the three main contenders for the win. Bailey and Van Wart raced wheel-to-wheel for the lead during the middle portion of the race until Winger took command with 12 laps left.

Winger’s car began to emit smoke around the same time as he took the lead, but he and his car survived a tangle with a lapped car and several restarts late in the race to take the win. Bailey was not as fortunate, and fell out of the race with transmission problems just 3 laps from the end. Van Wart settled for the runner-up spot, followed by Dave Silverthorn, Jr., Chris Dickie, and 26th starter Jack Myers.

*At press time, A-Feature results are still unofficial, pending further technical inspection.

GALE’S AUTO AFTERMARKET PRESENTS BROCK LEONARD MEMORIAL NIGHT THIS FRIDAY, JULY 18

Ohsweken, Ontario – July 15, 2014 – Ohsweken Speedway’s 19th season of racing continues this Friday, July 18, when Gale’s Auto Aftermarket presents Brock Leonard Memorial Night featuring the “Brock Leonard Memorial 50” for Affordable Towing & Recovery Thunder Stocks, plus Corr/Pak Merchandising 360 Sprint Cars, Strickland’s GMC Crate Sprint Cars, HRW Automotive Mini Stocks, and Gale’s Auto Aftermarket Bombers.

AFFORDABLE TOWING & RECOVERY THUNDER STOCKS BROCK LEONARD MEMORIAL 50
Ohsweken’s Thunder Stock teams will contest the longest feature race of their season this week in the running of the Brock Leonard Memorial 50. The race honours Brock Leonard, a long-time speedway official and friend to many in the Ontario racing community, who passed away in 2012. The third annual Brock Leonard Memorial 50 will feature a slightly different format, with group time trials added to the qualification process, which will also include heat races, and a B-Main.

Brad Herron won the inaugural “Brock Leonard Memorial 50″ in 2012, while Ryan Turner was the winner of last year’s event. Herron is now racing in the Strickland’s GMC Crate Sprint Car division, while Turner has joined the DIRTcar Sportsman Modified ranks, leaving a host of competitors looking to add their names to the special trophy, and earn the $1,000 winner’s prize.

Wyatt Van Wartwon his 4th feature race of the season last Friday, and leads the Thunder Stock championship standings heading into the Brock Leonard Memorial 50. Dave Silverthorn, Jr. is second in the standings, followed by 2013 champ Lee Winger, Jim Lampman, Chris Dickie, Bill Bleich, Jr., Dave Bailey, Karl Sault, Rookie of the Year standings leader Chase Hess, and Steve Hess.

CORR/PAK MERCHANDISING 360 SPRINT CARS

Aaron Turkey sits second in the standings, followed by Jake Brown, Mike Thorne, and Josh Shantz. The new division has featured 11 full time drivers, and saw 600cc Micro Sprint driver Dylan Westbrook make his Crate Sprint Car debut last Friday. Another new car is expected this Friday, as 2013 Mini Stock champ Davey Boughton is slated to be in attendance with his Crate Sprint Car.

HRW AUTOMOTIVE MINI STOCKS
Tyler Lafantaisie continued his dominance of the Mini Stock division last Friday by winning his fourth Ohsweken feature of the season. Lafantaisie also has three runner-up finishes and a 4th place finish this season, and leads the championship standings over Rookie of the Year standings leader Mark Bazuin, Team 66 (Brandon and Jon Janssens), Team 81 (Alex Schuts and Lee Hils), Team 79 (Steve and Dan Miller), Lucas Lubin, Robin Elliott, Team 55 (Rob and Kevin Slater), Jonathan Ayrton, and Tim DeBoer.

CORR/PAK MERCHANDISING 360 SPRINT CARS (20 entries)

Shane Ross and Kyle Patrick started on the front row for the 20 lap 360 Sprint Car feature. Patrick took the lead early, while Jim Huppunen took second place from Ross on lap 3. Dave Dykstra took the third spot from Ross on lap 5, while 4th row starter Dain Naida moved into the top 5 on lap 6. Naida got by Huppunen on lap 10, while Dykstra’s chance for a top 5 finish ended when his right rear tire went flat on lap 11. Mitch Brown was running 5th when bodywork fell off his car and brought about a yellow flag for debris on the track. The championship contender was sent to the back of the field for the restart.

Huppunen briefly got back around Naida on lap 14, but couldn’t keep the Michigan driver behind him. Naida inched closer to Patrick as the race neared conclusion, and made the winning move in traffic in turn one on the last lap. Naida’s 4th career Ohsweken win came in his first visit to the track this season. Patrick settled for the runner-up spot, followed by Huppunen, Ross, and Glenn Styres, who had almost spun out just 2 laps from the end.

STRICKLAND’S GMC CRATE SPRINT CARS (12 entries)

Hunsinger fended off a challenge from Robbie General and went on to take his 3rd win of the season, followed by General, Durnin, Aaron Turkey, and Dylan Westbrook.
