Pegher Grabs FASTRAK Victory, Isner Claims Tammy Clegg Memorial

Isner wins Clegg Memorial

A busy night at the ‘bullring’ seen the stars and cars of the FASTRAK Northeast Tour highlight the evenings action at the Tyler County Speedway along with the annual Tammy Clegg Memorial for Hotmods and the first ever appearance of the ¾ late models.  After some early season growing pains with the new clay surface that was put down, a traditional, wide, multi-groove, table top smooth ‘bullring’ surface awaited racers and fans which made for a fantastic night of edge of your seat entertainment at the Tyler County Speedway.

The Hometown Racing Association welcomed the FASTRAK Late Model Northeast Tour back to the Tyler County Speedway for round two of the 2013 season.   Twenty six of the best crate late model racers in the nation lined up and when the checkered flag flew it was perennial winner Mike Pegher of Wexford, PA piloting the Geisler/ #1Cochran Automotive sponsored machine picking up the impressive win over a stout field of Peoples Bank FASTRAK late models.  A caution filled event would see Pegher hold off the pesky duo of Kyle Thomas and Max Blair, rounding out the top five were Dan Angelichio and Joe Martin.

The Annual Tammy Clegg Tribute for the Hotmod division would see Hannibal, Ohio’s Kenny “Radar” Isner aboard Mike Martin’s/Mike’s Auto Body/Norris Tire/Buddy Light Accounting/B&S Graphics #7 Lightning chassis sweep the night by picking up the prestigious Clegg Memorial but also taking the fan favorite “King of the Kounty” title.

Early race leader Chad Smith set the initial pace but mechanical issues sidelined the snake bitten driver for the event and once Isner took command he would go on to grab the popular win ahead of Brad Dickson, CJ Dotson, Lou Ennis and Codi Eaton.  Fans were also treated to the first “King of the Kounty” event of the season where the top 8 qualifiers in the Hotmod division would go bracket style racing until just one was left and in the championship round it was Isner knocking off Chad Smith to pick up the first “King of the Kounty” title.

In the Chris Metz State Farm Insurance ModLite main event it was Beallsville, Ohio’s Josh Baldwin aboard the 34n picking up his 3rd win of the season.  Baldwin would hold off a hard charging Ron Parrish as the veteran racer made it interesting on the final circuit but had to settle for a season best 2nd place finish at the line.  Rounding out the top five were Braiden Dillinger, Steve Weekley and Ryan Baker.

In the first appearance of the ¾ late models at the Tyler County Speedway it was Kelvin Kohan beating out Jeff Fornash and Colten Flinner across the stripe.

Next Saturday, June 22nd the ‘bullring’ will sit idle in honor of the town of Middlebourne’s 200th Birthday Celebration and the events being held at the Fairgrounds including the Landau Eugene Murphy concert and Fireworks.

Rain Washes Out “Earl Hill Memorial”, Icon Memorial Show & Renegade Speedweek At Tyler County!

For Immediate Release

Rain Washes Out First Night of Icon Tour & Renegade Speedweek, Wayne Co. Up Next!
American Racer/Lias Tire Added As Sponsor For Icon Speedweek!

(Middlebourne, WV) The highly anticipated Inaugural Icon Memorial Tour Late Model Speedway presented by Weekley Electric and the 2013 “Duel on Dirt” Renegade Modified Speedweek will have to wait another day before it gets underway due to another W for Mother Nature on the 2013 “Back For More Tour” season. The tour’s which were set to kick off on Thursday night at the Tyler County Speedway with the 25th running of the Earl Hill Memorial and the $1200 to win E-Mod special have been postponed due to rain and treacherous weather conditions for the entire Ohio Valley area for much of Thursday morning and throughout the day.

With high winds, hail, and rainfall already making its way into the area and much more predicted throughout the night Hometown Racing Association promoter John Watson was forced to call off the festivities slated for June 13th at the Bullring which included the $4,000 to win Earl Hill Memorial, a rain date for this event is still to be determined. The Renegade of Dirt Modified Tour will also look to make up the lost event during the remainder of the 2013 season which will be announced as soon as possible for racers to call an audible in order to replan their return to the Middlebourne, WV ¼ mile dirt oval. As much as three inches of rain and 60-70 mph winds are in the forecast for the already soft and saturated all new racing surface adorning the facility. The new surface features 250 loads of new clay that has yet to successfully form into prime condition which is making every large rainfall that much more difficult on track staff to prep for each race night and ultimately makes tomorrow night to risk on racers equipment for the rest of the weekend.

“The weather wont cut us any slack” stated John Watson. “We’re working hard on the surface and getting it right. Jeopardizing our progress we’ve made over the last few days by running it and the forecast calling for over two inches of rain we think it’s for the better to go ahead and postpone the Earl Hill race so that we can reschedule it and showcase the 25th annual event on a speedway that will be conducive to typical three and four wide smooth ‘Bullring’ action” added Watson. “We’re disappointed but we wanted to also make our decision early for all traveling race teams to have plenty of notice, we want to wish all the race teams the best of luck as they travel the remainder of their speedweek Friday through Sunday and want to remind everyone we will be in action this Saturday night with the Fastrak Northeast Touring Series, EDGE Hotmods, Modlites, and a speedway first 3/4 Late Models” concluded Watson.

The tours finest are now set for a three day adventure that will still see the East Elite tour and the Icon Tour storm towards three different states during the extended June 13th-16th weekend. Racers are reminded the Renegade of Dirt Modified Top Ten Bounty is still on. Any racer outside the current top ten in Renegade of Dirt point standings who tries and can out duel the East’s elite hotshoes will win an extra $500 ‘bounty’ that is up for grabs to participate and gun down the likes of Morehouse, Aukland, Wisecarver, Hartman, Kinkade, Strickler, D1ckson, Cook, D1ckson, and Watson each night. The wickedest throttle stompers this side of the Mississippi make this task as tough as they come. For the Renegades they will be gunning to keep that from happening, if they do the top five in points after the weekend will each score an extra $100 additional funds to go with their four night earnings.

The Icon Memorial Tour is still set on go for three straight days that will feature its opener now in the Buckeye State of Ohio at the Wayne County Speedway in beautiful Orrville for the $4000 to win, “Freedom Fighters 40”. Some of the Ohio Valley’s premier Super Late Model racers are expected to be in attendance to battle the always tough field of regulars at the Wayne County Speedway including; Rick Aukland, Doug Drown, Donnie and Devin Moran, Keith Barbara, Mike Benedum, Mason Zeigler, Keith Berner, and many more.

The action will then resume on Saturday when the Renegades of Dirt Modified Tour will journey to the Pittsburgh PA Motor Speedway and participate on the monster ½ mile Imperial, PA based facility for crucial tour points and for the first time ever! It also makes that return after a long absence for the open wheel division at the speedway where the Renegade Tour will battle for $1200 to win and $150 to start in front of highly anticipated large crowd. The Herb Scott Memorial and second night for the Icon Tour will also await the full fender Late Model division that will be gunning for the $4000 top prize on night #2 of the now abbreviated Icon Memorial Tour Late Model Speedweek presented by Weekley Electic.

Lastly, the tour will return to the West Virginia Motor Speedway for second time in 2013 for an epic speedweek finale battle. The 4/10′s mile ‘Speedplant’ is sure to produce a full night of adrenaline pumping speed when the Renegade tour combines with the Icon Tour Super Late Model division as they too settle their weekend champion at the Mineral Wells, WV based dirt oval during the “Mark Balzano Memorial” $4,000 to win invitational.

Sonny Conley & Derek Rogers Snare First Wins of Season at Tyler County Speedway

sonny conley

A fun action packed night at the Tyler County Speedway would see a couple first time winners visit victory lane, some wild finishes, late race heroics and fans in attendance were treated to an on-track meet and greet autograph night with their favorite racers.

New Martinsville, WV driver Sonny Conley aboard the familiar 1×1 Rocket Chassis would pick up his first victory in three years in the J&R Excavating Late Model division presented by Midcap Land and Timber.  But, it didn’t come easy as Conley set a torrid pace on the soft hammer down racing surface from the race start but would see his big lead evaporate on the last circuit.  As the leader exited turn 2 something broke underneath leaving a slowing Conley in the cross hairs of second place running Mike Benedum.  Conley was able to limp across the finish line with a closing Benedum and Steve Weigle in tow to narrowly escape with the popular win for the veteran racer.  Rounding out the top five were Benedum, Weigle, Corey Conley and Scott Irvin.

Popular racer Derek Rogers of Spelter, WV driving the #23 machine would pick up his first victory of the season at the Tyler County Speedway in the Peoples Bank FASTRAK main event.  A rough and tumble event would see Rogers hold off a hard charging Chris Carpenter from the tail to grab the popular win.  Rounding out the top five were Rogers, Carpenter, Brian Baumberger, Mike Griffin and Tracy Sampson.  A $1,500 to win FASTRAK NE Touring event will be on the slate next Saturday Night, June 15th for the Peoples Bank FASTRAK division.

Mike “Bird” Wilson would grab his second Two Brothers Motorsports feature event of the season.  Wilson would start his night with the misfortune of seeing his blue #20 hard in to the wall in heat race action, leaving his status for starting the feature in serious jeopardy.  But after lengthy repairs the talented Sistersville, WV racer would charge from the tail of the feature event running high low and the middle of the race track and making a late race pass of early leader Mark Dickson to seize his second win of the season in impressive fashion.  Rounding out the top five were Dickson, Travis Dickson, Justin Hart and Kenny Harris.

A full field of Hotmods would see Mike Conkle pick up another win after a wild and wooly main event.  An intense battle up front among Conkle, David Kile, Chad Smith, Tom Sigler, Travis Thomas, and Bill Sigmon among others had drivers running all over the tacky racing surface looking for the win.  A late race skirmish resulting in a 7 car pileup under the flag stand would see 2nd running Kile’s great run come to an end.  But when the dust settled it was wiley veteran Mike Conkle picking up the win followed by a charging Chad Smith from the tail, Lou Ennis, Chris Thomas and Bill Sigmon rounding out the top five.

Beallsville, Ohio’s Josh Baldwin would lay claim to his second Chris Metz State Farm Insurance Modlite main event over Mitch Ward, Jeff Fornash, Tracy Fritter and Ryan Baker.

In the MWRA Mini Wedges it was Jacob Ice claiming yet another win.  The “Little Ice Man” has been on a mission by dominating the MWRA class thus far in 2013.  Rounding out the top five were Alec Frazier, Georgie Tennant, Levi Nolan and Buckwheat Wright.

A busy week ahead for the Bullring as a double header of racing action is on the docket.  The first leg of the Weekley Electric Icon Memorial Tour will roll thru the Tyler County Speedway this Thursday Night, June 13th.  The four night Icon Memorial Tour will kick off with the 25th Annual Earl Hill Memorial with $4,000 on the line for the J&R Excavating Super Late Models presented by Midcap Land and Timber.  Also on the Thursday Thunder card will be the always entertaining and stout Renegades of Dirt Modified Tour that will see the east coasts best open wheel warriors hit the high banks of the bullring.  Also joining the stellar Thursday Night card will be the Hotmods and Chris Metz State Farm Modlite divisions.  Gates open at 4, with hot laps/qualifications at 7, general admission is $20, children 10 and under are free and pit admission is $35 for the running of the Icon Memorial Tour featuring the Earl Hill Memorial and Renegade of Dirt Modified Tour.

Join us back at the bullring on Saturday night, June 15th for the $1,500 to win FASTRAK Late Model Northeast Tour plus the annual running of the Tammy Clegg Tribute race for the Hotmod division, also racing the Modlites and Mini Wedges.  Gates open at 4, Hotlaps/Qualifications begin at 7.  General admission is $10 and children 10 and under are free and pit admission is $26.

Located in the scenic WV hills, the Tyler County Speedway is located just 4 miles south of Middlebourne on State Route 18 at the fairgrounds and featuring the FANtastic 5 weekly program that consist of Super Late Models, FASTRAK Late Models, EDGE Modifieds, joined by the EDGE HotMods, ModLites, and as always the MWRA Mini-wedges will open the show at the Bullring. As the best weekly card in the Ohio Valley region provides more bang for the race fans hard earned buck featuring double the Late Model excitement and a triple dose of modified action at fan friendly pricing.

Lanigan Holds Off Richards For $15,000-Plus Score In Sunday’s Finale Of Jackpot 100 by NAPA At Tyler County Speedway

lanigan jackpot 100

Defending World of Outlaws Late Model Series Champion Captures Tour-Leading Fourth Victory Of 2013

By Kevin Kovac, WoO LMS P.R. Director

MIDDLEBOURNE, WV – May 26, 2013 – Darrell Lanigan held off the relentless late-race challenges of Josh Richards to emerge triumphant in Sunday night’s 70-lap finale of the second annual Jackpot 100 Presented by NAPA Auto Parts weekend at Tyler County Speedway.

The defending World of Outlaws Late Model Series champion from Union, Ky., never relinquished the lead after inheriting the top spot on lap 41 when Tim Fuller of Watertown, N.Y., slowed with a flat right-rear tire, but he was dogged throughout the closing stages by Shinnston, W.Va.’s Richards. The outcome was in doubt until Lanigan reached the finish line with a slim winning margin of 0.594 of a second over Richards.

Lanigan, 42, registered his tour-best fourth victory of 2013 but first since the final night of February’s season-opening swing through Georgia and Florida. He pocketed $15,650 for his performance, which gave him a big-money win at the quarter-mile oval for the second consecutive year. In 2012, Lanigan captured the inaugural Jackpot 100 by NAPA, which was run as a stand-alone, one-day 100-lapper.

Bub McCool of Vicksburg, Miss., who started from the outside pole and led laps 1-21, finished about three seconds behind the pacesetters in third place. He was overtaken for the runner-up spot by Richards on the race’s sixth and final restart, on lap 41, and spent the remainder of the distance holding strong in the show position to record his best WoO LMS finish of the season in his Victory Circle car.

Davey Johnson of Latrobe, Pa., who started sixth, finished fourth in his brother Mike’s Rocket machine despite competing with a possible broken left wrist. He was injured during the previous night’s 30-lap A-Main when his car lost power on a restart and was hit several times from behind, causing his hand to get jammed in the steering wheel.

Shane Clanton of Zebulon, Ga., completed the top five in the Kennedy Motorsports Capital Race Car. He started fourth and briefly climbed up to third early in the event before settling into fifth place.

Lanigan, who started fifth in his Rocket mount, appeared to come alive shortly before the race’s halfway mark. He slid by Richards for third on lap 28 and slipped underneath McCool for second on lap 35, but he still found himself a full straightaway behind Fuller, who had driven his Kennedy Motorsports Capital Race Car around the outside of the track to move from the seventh starting spot to the lead by lap 22.

Fuller, 45, looked intent on erasing the bitter memory of his last-turn loss to Richards in Saturday night’s A-Main, but his bid ended in disappointing fashion when he slowed with a cut right-rear tire on lap 41 to bring out a caution flag. He pitted and returned but could only manage a 10th-place finish.

“Fuller had a good line out there on the outside,” said Lanigan, who pushed his WoO LMS record career win total to 45. “But I knew we was a lot softer (on tire-compound selection) so I was just trying to conserve our tires.

“We was reeling him in (after reaching second). Whether or not we would’ve passed him or not, I don’t know. But he definitely had a good car.”

Richards, who started from the pole position in his father Mark’s Rocket Chassis house car but didn’t lead a single lap, immediately took up the chase of Lanigan following the lap-41 restart. The 25-year-old sensation was able to nose under Lanigan’s car several times, but Lanigan’s smooth style prevented Richards from pulling off more heroics to sweep the Jackpot 100 by NAPA doubleheader.

“I really didn’t know he was back there,” Lanigan said of Richards. “You can’t really get any signals out there (from crewmen), but the car was good and we just ran our own line out there.”

Richards credited Lanigan for his savvy maneuvering, but he felt he might have allowed the race to slip through his fingers.

“I think we were better than he was, and I was just kind of riding for a little bit trying to make something happen,” said Richards, who pushed his WoO LMS points lead to 48 markers over Clanton. “But he did what he had to do and used the track. Once I found my sweet spot and ran a little bit wider I could run up over top of him, but there just wasn’t anywhere to go.

“I’m kind of mad at myself that we didn’t try a little harder (to pass Lanigan). Actually, I thought we had more laps left. It just kind of shocked me when I saw the white (flag).”

In a race slowed by six caution flags, the casualties included third-starter Tim McCreadie of Watertown, N.Y., who had slipped to the back end of the top 10 before a lap-20 tangle in turn four left his car’s nose too damaged for him to continue.

Rick Eckert of York, Pa., finished sixth, rallying from the 22nd starting spot after qualifying through a B-Main. WoO LMS rookie Morgan Bagley of Longview, Texas finished seventh for his third top-10 run in a row; Scott James of Bright, Ind., was eighth after starting 20th; Clint Smith of Senoia, Ga., recovered from a lap-three tandem spin with Mason Zeigler of Chalk Hill, Pa., to place ninth; and Fuller rounded out the top 10.

Thirty-five cars were entered in Sunday night’s program.

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. Richards registered the quickest overall lap of the evening at 12.620 seconds in Group ‘A’ to earn his series-leading fourth fast-time honor of 2013, while McCreadie topped Group ‘B’ with a circuit of 12.900 seconds.

Heat winners were Richards, Johnson, Clanton and McCool. The B-Mains were topped by Derek Doll of Greenwood, W.Va., and Eric Wells of Hazard, Ky.

The next action for the WoO LMS is two events in the Northeast: the Fulton Bank 50 on Thurs., May 30, at Delaware International Speedway in Delmar and a 50-lapper on Sat., June 1, at Stateline Speedway in Busti, N.Y. Both races carry a first-place prize of $10,000.

richards jackpot 100

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.
