World of Outlaws Late Model Series Points Leader’s First-Ever Feature Win In Home State Of West Virginia Comes In Dramatic Fashion

By Kevin Kovac, WoO LMS P.R. Director

MIDDLEBOURNE, WV – May 25, 2013 – Josh Richards found a truly memorable way to capture his first-ever dirt Late Model victory in his home state.

The 25-year-old superstar from Shinnston, W.Va., pulled off one of the most dramatic triumphs of his career on Saturday night, passing Tim Fuller of Watertown, N.Y., on the final circuit of the 30-lap World of Outlaws Late Model Series A-Main that kicked off the Jackpot 100 Presented by NAPA Auto Parts weekend at Tyler County Speedway.

Richards beat Fuller to the finish line by a mere 0.154 of a second for a win worth $6,150. It was the third WoO LMS victory of the season for the tour’s two-time champion and current points leader, who happily tasted success in his native Mountaineer State for the first time in his 10 years as a dirt Late Model driver.

“It’s cool to finally get one in front of the home crowd,” said Richards, whose appearances at tracks in West Virginia have been limited during a career focused on national touring. “It’s been pretty hard to do. I think we counted up in 10 years we only raced in the state seven or eight times.”

Fuller, 45, was a disappointed runner-up after starting from the outside pole position and leading laps 14-29. It was his best finish of the 2013 WoO LMS campaign, but his winless streak on the tour reached 113 races since he last reached Victory Lane on June 17, 2010, at Merrittville Speedway in Thorold, Ont.

Darrell Lanigan of Union, Ky., battled forward from the 10th starting spot to finish within striking distance of the leaders in third place. Rick Eckert of York, Pa., started and finished fourth and Shane Clanton of Zebulon, Ga., salvaged his night with a hard-fought advance from the 22nd starting spot to fifth place.

Richards, who started eighth after picking the worst pill in the A-Main redraw, caught some breaks on his way to the checkered flag. Most notably, he gained valuable track position when Tim McCreadie of Watertown, N.Y., who started from the pole and authoritatively led the race’s first 13 laps, relinquished the top spot during a lap-13 caution period due to a flat right-front tire and, during another caution two circuits later, Steve Casebolt Jr. of Richmond, Ind., gave up second place because his car’s driveshaft broke.

“I know McCreadie had a flat and Casebolt broke,” said Richards, who recorded his 42nd career win on the WoO LMS. “We lucked into a few spots. I don’t know if we could’ve got by them.”

Left in second place after Casebolt’s misfortune, Richards spent the final 15 caution-free laps chasing Fuller, who inherited the lead when McCreadie headed pitside for a tire change. Fuller maintained an edge of just under one second until lap 25, when Richards began cutting the gap by about a tenth of a second per circuit.

Richards drew close enough to challenge Fuller heading to the white flag. Fuller led the 29th lap by a scant margin, but he couldn’t stay ahead for one more trip around the quarter-mile oval. Richards charged to the inside of the track rounding turns three and four for the final time, slid ahead of Fuller off the race’s last corner and outran the New Yorker to the checkered flag.

“If we would’ve stayed away from lapped traffic he would’ve won,” Richards said of Fuller. “He was out in clean track and he could pick some speed up, so it was hard to gain any ground. I just kept watching the lapped cars and watching the dirt off their tires and tried to stay low.

“Once we got a run there (on the last lap) I just had to go for it. I tried to do it one last corner and it finally worked out.”

Fuller was left shell-shocked by the heartbreaking defeat. He struggled to describe the final-lap turn of events during a post-race interview in front of the crowd.

“He banzaied it in there and he slid me. That’s the end of it,” Fuller said of Richards. “I felt like we had a pretty good car, but all you need is one banzai run at the flag – hey, that happens.”

After returning to his trailer, Fuller provided more insight into the race’s deciding moment. He said that with the race’s frenetic pace, he didn’t realize that the checkered flag was flying when Richards made his aggressive, last-ditch bid for the win.

“He slid me and made it work because I was courteous,” said Fuller. “It could’ve been a more controversial outcome, but didn’t think it was the last lap so I actually thought I could get him back. I thought I had a good enough run to do the same thing to him that he did to me, just through (turns) one and two.

“I never saw the checkered flag, and we still raced another whole lap. I’d thought I (regained the lead and) won. I had no clue. I didn’t realize the race was over after he passed me until I heard (WoO LMS race director) Bret (Emrock) on the (one-way) radio one lap later.”

Four caution flags slowed the event. Jacob Hawkins of Fairmont, W.Va., fell off the pace on lap nine, and on the restart moments later Davey Johnson of Latrobe, Pa., suddenly slowed on the backstretch while running third, causing several cars to make contact with Johnson and each other in the chain-reaction jam-up. The final cautions were thrown after contact with other cars led to spins by WoO LMS regulars Clint Smith of Senoia, Ga. (lap 13) and Scott James of Bright, Ind. (lap 15).

A red flag was also needed on lap nine after Johnson pulled his car to a stop on the inside of turn three and summoned medical attention. He complained of pain in his left wrist after his hand jammed into his car’s steering wheel as his powerless machine was hit from behind.

Johnson had an ice pack wrapped on his left wrist as he helped load up his car following the night’s action. He said he was heading home and would visit a doctor there for further treatment.

Chub Frank of Bear Lake, Pa., finished sixth after starting 16th. Steve Weigle of Middlebourne, W.Va., enjoyed a career-best WoO LMS finish of seventh after starting 15th and 17th-starter Mike Benedum of Salem, W.Va., placed eighth in his first WoO LMS A-Main start of 2013 after failing to qualify in his previous nine attempts. Provisional-starter Gregg Satterlee of Rochester Mills, Pa., and WoO LMS rookie Morgan Bagley of Longview, Texas, rounded out the top 10.

A field of 34 cars was signed in for the first night of the Jackpot 100 by NAPA.

Ohlins Shocks Time Trials were split into ‘A’ and ‘B’ groups, with the first half competing for starting positions in heats one and two and the second half racing against the clock to align heats three and four. James registered the fastest overall lap of the evening at 13.109 seconds to earn his first WoO LMS quick-time honor of 2013, while Richards topped Group ‘B’ with a circuit of 13.137 seconds.

Heat winners were James, Fuller, Richards and Smith. The B-Mains were captured by Benedum and Butch McGill of West Union, W.Va.

The finale of the Jackpot 100 by NAPA on Sunday (May 26) is scheduled to begin with hot laps at 6 p.m. For more information visit www.tylercountyspeedwayonline.com or call 304-771-5661 or 304-771-4883.

Hawkins, Wisecarver, Carpenter, Conkle, Ward Pick Up Jackpot Provisionals

hawkins and benedum

(Middlebourne, WV)  A full pit area greeted race fans and a hammer down racey bullring awaited eager drivers looking to earn a coveted spot in next weeks gigantic Memorial Weekend World of Outlaw Jackpot weekend.  Garnering Tyler County Speedway triumphs were Jared Hawkins, Chris Carpenter, Jesse Wisecarver, Mike Conkle, Mitch Ward and Jacob Ice.

In the J&R Excavating Super Late Models it was Fairmont, WV’s Jared Hawkins putting his mount in the Tyler County victory lane for the first time in 2013.  Hawkins would blast to the lead from his front row starting spot but would have to withstand a late race charge from Mike Benedum and Steve Weigle to hang on to the victory insuring his starting spot in the World of Outlaw Jackpot 100.  Rounding out the top five were Benedum, Weigle, Sonny Conley, and Corey Conley.  The J&R Excavating Super Late Model division has seen four different feature winners so far in 2013.

It was the “Joker” Chris Carpenter from Parkersburg, WV ending the Kyle Thomas three race win streak in the Peoples Bank FASTRAK Late Model division.  Carpenter would blast around Thomas midway thru the race to claim his first victory of the young season.  Completing the top five were Thomas, Danny Thomas, Derek Rogers and Brandon McGrady.

A stout field of 22 Two Brothers Motorsports EDGE modifieds would take to the bullring vying for a spot in next week’s monstrous “Let it Ride 55”.  A very spirited battle would ensue at the drop of the green between Bird Wilson, DJ Cline, Rick Aukland, Kenny Johnson, Jared Hawkins and Jesse Wisecarver as they sliced and diced in typical ‘bullring’ fashion.  Early leader Wilson would eventually succumb to a hard charging Wisecarver and Cline while Hawkins was continuing to blast around the top.  Wisecarver from Zanesville, Ohio would go on to claim the win aboard Tom and Junior Nolan’s Two Brother Motorsports entry holding off a nice run by DJ Cline, Jared Hawkins, Bird Wilson and Mark Dickson.

Shinnston, WV’s Mitch Ward piloting the 862 Modlite would lay claim to his first ever feature win in the Chris Metz State Farm Insurance ModLite division.  Ward would hold off perennial winner Tracy Fritter, Josh Baldwin, Randy Kerns, and Brandon Fluharty to the stripe.

A wild Hotmod main event would see a flurry of action with Mike Conkle coming out on top.  Race long leader Chad Smith and Conkle would drag down the backstretch heading for the checkered when the lead duo would make contact entering turn three resulting in Smith spinning in turn four before gathering it back up and finishing seventh, while Conkle would go on to claim the win.  Rounding out the top five were Codi Eaton, Brad Dickson, Chris Ice and Bobby Kimball.

The ‘Little Ice Man’ Jacob Ice would set the tone to the evening by picking up yet another MWRA Mini Wedge main event.

Coming this week is the Tyler County Speedway’s biggest event of the season as the World’s Most Powerful Stock Cars the World of Outlaw Late Models invade for the running of the Jackpot 100.  The weekend officially kicks off on Thursday night as a complete show for the Hotmods and Modlites plus an open practice session get the festivities underway.  On Friday, Country Superstars, Zack Paxson, Colt Ford and Justin Moore will rock the hills in a must see concert event.  Then on Saturday and Sunday the focus shifts back to the Bullring for two intense nights of World of Outlaw action and the historic “Let it Ride 55” Renegade of Dirt Modified event paying a whopping $7,555 to win.  Plus the FASTRAK Late Models, Modlites and Hotmods will also see action.  For more information or tickets call 304-771-5661 or 304-771-4883 and visit us online at www.tylercountyspeedwayonline.com .

Renegade of Dirt “Rookie of the Year” Contender, Amanda Stiffler Is Taking A Stand!
Avid member of the RAD program, Stiffler seeks to provide awareness to racing’s youth!

(Middlebourne, WV) As race fans from all over prepare to make their way to Tyler County Speedway’s action packed Memorial Day weekend, Renegade Tour officials are pleased to announce yet another exciting opportunity for race fans of all ages to take part in during the week-end ‘s esteemed line up of entertainment.

Fifteen year old, Renegade of Dirt “Rookie of the Year” contender, and second generation racer Amanda Stiffler of Farmdale, Ohio is not only passionate about her on track activity, she’s also very fervid about her off track responsibilities as part of the ‘youth’ of Auto Racing. Amanda excels in her actions of doing both very well, and is a national spokesperson for the Race Against Drugs http://www.ncprs.org/radHome.htm when not running side by side with the “guys” on dirt ovals all across the OH-WV-PA Tri-State area.

Racers Against Drugs (RAD) is the largest racing volunteer network dedicating their time as role model’s to young fans to follow their lead and live drug free, healthy lives by Fueling a Drug Free Future! The goals of the RAD organization and their spokespersons are to reach and educate our nation’s youth by advocating through motorsports professionals a drug free healthy lifestyle. Their primary focus has been to establish and maintain a large volunteer network that distributes materials designed to raise awareness and encourage discussion about drug abuse and change the attitudes and perceptions of our nation’s youth.

Amanda’s involvement with RAD started at age 14 , and being a teen in high school she knows all too well about the peer pressures, and negative influences America’s youth face daily in school and life.

I was excited to be a spokesperson for RAD so that I could show other teens, like myself, that we can together rise above the bad influences and peer pressures and that there are far better opportunities and things than drugs and alcohol. I love being a role model and helping other kids like me reach for better things and say ‘no’ to drugs.” stated, Stiffler.

Amanda is more than excited to use her racing career to be a positive influence to her peers, ” I have been blessed with the opportunity to live a dream and while I have thankfully never taken drugs, I can assure you NO drug can match the high of racing wide open into turn one. I just want kids to know that no matter what they want to do in life, they can do it if the make the right decisions and stand up for what is right.” concluded, Stiffler.

As part of the stellar weekend of events and activities offered to fans at this years Renegade of Dirt Modified Tour “Let It Ride 55”, on Saturday May 25, 2013 from 2:00pm-4:00pm Amanda will be bringing along her 500+ horsepower #14 Open Wheel Modified to vender’s alley behind the main grandstands and will be there to visit with young fans, sign autographs, give away many fun things for children and teens as well as information on the dangers of drugs.

She will encourage young fans to pledge with her to be drug free by signing her RAD pledge book. Each young fan eighteen and under that signs her pledge book will receive a ticket and be entered to win either a 1/24 scale or 1/64 scale die cast of Amanda’s RAD Modified sponsored by American Diecast Company out of Saxonburg, PA http://www.american-diecast.com/ . There will be a total of four diecast cars given away to ticket holders at intermission of the event on May 25th.

This is a wonderful thing, in today’s world where drugs are prevalent among the schools and in the teenage environment it’s great to see kids who are using their passions towards also providing an opportunity to pass out details on living a drug free lifestyle” stated Tour director, Cody Watson. “We are glad to have Amanda on the tour and to see her reaching out and spending time making kids aware through the RAD program, volunteering her time on a race day and not just being “to busy” to make a difference” concluded Watson.
