Record Crowd ‘Packs the Track’ at Tyler County Speedway

Pack the Track

The Hometown Racing Association presented “Pack the Track” Night at Tyler County Speedway and a staggering and record 4,000 fans arrived at the ‘Bullring’ for a FREE Night of action.  The crowd is believed to be the largest in the speedway history for a non multi-day major event.  Lots of smiles and memories were made as fans were greeted to a well ran show featuring 110 competitors with Derek Doll, Derek Rogers, Bird Wilson, Travis Thomas, Jeff Fornash, Bill Tennnant and Roo Roo Dotson all picking up wins.  The capacity crowd was filled with families and kids who enjoyed a mega bike giveaway and family autograph night at intermission.  Impressed by the large turnout promoter John Watson invited all back next week for just $5 if you bring your armband back as its “Turn Back the Clock” Night. 

Greenwood, WV’s Derek Doll would grab the win in the J&R Excavating Super Late Model division presented by Midcap Land and Timber.  The 3rd starting Doll would hound early race leader Paul Wilmoth lap after lap with a lapped car causing some tense moments as the leaders battled hard with Wilmoth on the high side and Doll working the bottom.  Misfortune would strike Wilmoth as a flat tire would send the leader pit side turning the lead over to a fast Doll.  Doll would distance himself from the pack to claim the popular win.  Seventh starting Butch McGill would claw his way into the runner up position ahead of Steve Weigle, Billy Brown and Daniel Hill.

Shawn Jett would set a blistering pace leading the Peoples Bank FASTRAK division in the early stages but a charging Derek Rogers working the bottom of the speedway would roll past Jett taking the lead.  While Rogers would set sail a ferocious battle between Jett and past winners Robbie Scott and Kyle Thomas would thrill fans.  But at the checkered it was Derek Rogers picking up his second win of the season followed by Jett, Scott, Kyle Thomas and Danny Thomas.

In a very entertaining Two Brothers Motorsports Modified main event it was Sistersville, WV’s Bird Wilson claiming another win.  Wilson would hold off a pesky and hard charging Lance Elson as the duo were blasting around the speedway cushion lap after lap.  Elson waiting on Wilson to make a mistake but the veteran of the ‘Bullring’ would drive a flawless race holding off Elson, Junior Nolan, Gerald Deitch and Mark Dickson for the win.

In a very hotly contested Hotmod main event it was young Stevi Magyar leading the way from her pole position by her virtue of bringing the most fans to the speedway.  But early race leader Kenny Isner had victory in sight but 3rd starting Travis Thomas would eventually pass Isner and go on the claim his 1st win of the season in the familiar blue and white #18.  A classic 3 car battle would rage for the runner up position between Mick Baker, Chad Smith and Isner but when the dust settled it was Mick Baker claiming the bridesmaid position over Isner, Smith and Lou Ennis.

Jeff Fornash of Salem, WV would dominate the Modlite main event besting Josh Baldwin, Jim Ruckman, Mitch Ward and Gabe Phillips.

Bill Tennant of Colliers, WV has put a stranglehold on the FWD 4 Cylinder division.  Tennant would lead Donnie Wamsley, Robert Frohnapfel, John Sinnett and Mike Frazier across the stripe.

It was Roo Roo Dotson picking up a very popular win and her 1st ever victory in the MWRA Mini Wedge division.  The young racer outlasted Dalton Anderson, Jacob Ice, Brady Reed and Kylie Cross across the line.

Join us next Saturday Night, June 14th as Tyler County Speedway host “Turn Back the Clock” Night as $1 dogs and $.50 cent popcorn await hungry fans.  Also in appreciation of the speedway’s 40th Anniversary season if you were born in 1974, the tracks first year of operation, admission is FREE.  Plus bring your general admission armband back from ‘Pack the Track Night’ and get your seat for just $5.  All classes will be in action as its Midseason Championship (double points) along with a King of the Kounty event for the FASTRAK, Hotmod and Modlite divisions.

Davey Johnson Hits $20,000 Jackpot at Tyler County

Johnson's Jackpot

Pennsylvanian holds off World of Outlaws Late Model stars for huge payday

 

By Ben Shelton

MIDDLEBOURNE, W.Va. – May 25, 2014 – Maybe it was the four leaf clover, maybe it was the trick setup from crew chief, Austin Hargrove, or maybe it was just the relentless wheel of the veteran. No matter the exact reason, Davey Johnson overcame a furious late-race challenge from Chub Frank and Darrell Lanigan to claim the $20,000 payday in the 3rd Annual Jackpot 100 on Sunday night at Tyler County Speedway.

“This hot rod has just been great this whole year, and I always love this place…tonight we got ’em,” said the Greensburg, Pa., veteran in victory lane.

While Johnson was all smiles in victory lane, the 75 lap affair didn’t necessarily start with him being very happy. As the field came to green the pole sitter, Johnson, fired early, and was moved back a row with Morgan Bagley joining Jacob Hawkins on the front row.

As the race went green at the quarter-mile oval known as The Bullring, Hawkins jumped to the lead and held the top spot until lap 3, when Rick Eckert bolted to the lead as Hawkins dropped to the clutches of Johnson, Shane Clanton and Tim McCreadie, who was already on the move from the eighth starting spot.

Eckert quickly stretched his advantage over Johnson, who moved to the second spot on lap 6. While the York, Pa., driver motored away from the pack, Davey Johnson wasn’t too concerned in the early laps.

“I knew that he (Eckert) went softer than me on tires so I didn’t worry too much when he drove away from me early,” said the pilot of the #1J Rocket Imperial Towing Super Late Model.

By lap 9, Eckert was in lapped traffic before the race was slowed for the first time on lap 11 for Zack Dohm. At the time of the caution Eckert was the leader with Johnson, Hawkins, Clanton and McCreadie making up the top five.

As the race went back green the top five running order stayed the same, and by lap 23 traffic was an issue for leader Eckert. By lap 26, traffic became an even bigger issue, when a tangle with the lapped car of Tim Dohm sent Eckert spinning to a stop in turn one.

A dejected Eckert joined the tail of the field with Johnson assuming the lead. Despite several serious challenges over the remainder of the event it would prove to be a lead he would never relinquish.

While Johnson paced the field, a great battle raged behind him for the second spot with Clanton and McCreadie going wheel-to-wheel for the second spot with the Hawkins’ brothers in tow. Meanwhile as the race approached the midway point two drivers on the move were Chub Frank, who was up to fifth from the 11th starting spot by lap 42, while a motivated Eckert rocketed into the fifth spot on lap 48.

Unfortunately for Eckert his bad luck was far from over as the 2011 World of Outlaws Late Model Series Champion slowed with a flat tire on lap 54 before calling it a night seven laps later as a broken drive train.

With Johnson out front Frank continued his march forward with Hawkins in tow, and lap 61 found the duo catapulting into the second and third positions respectively with Lanigan lurking in the fourth spot.

With just 10 laps to go Frank turned up the wick and pulled alongside leader Johnson on multiple occasions, but just couldn’t make the pass stick, while Lanigan maneuvered past Hawkins into the third spot. The final 10 laps brought the crowd to its feet as Johnson, Frank and Lanigan battled in close confines.

With just a lap to go Johnson stretched his advantage to claim the victory, while Frank edged Lanigan by a nose for the second position at the line. Hawkins and McCreadie rounded out the top five.

A popular victory lane celebration in front of the West Virginia fans found Johnson thanking not only his crew, but also a special lady from the stands after claiming the third WoO LMS triumph of his career.

“Before the races today this sweet lady gave me a four leaf clover,” Johnson said. “I’m not saying that’s what did it tonight, but I’m not dismissing it either. This little flower is riding with me the rest of the year.”

Frank was more than pleased with his second place run.

“We seem to be getting better and better every time out this season, and it was a lot of fun running side-by-side with Davey (Johnson),” commented Frank. “Tonight definitely felt like the old days of me and him battling for the win.”

Heat race winners on Saturday evening included Davey Johnson, Rick Eckert, and Darrell Lanigan, while Sunday’s evening’s last chance showdown was topped by Tim Dohm.

The stars and cars of the WoO LMS will enjoy a four day break before invading the confines of Delaware International Speedway (Delmar, Del.) on Thursday, May 29, for the Fulton Bank 50. A $10,000 winner’s check will be on the line for the tour’s only appearance in the state of Delaware in 2014.

Nicely Navigates The Bullring To Perfection In Claiming Career Best Win, LET IT RIDE 55!

10296578_648061218616508_8508028314820434229_n

(Middlebourne, WV) The Renegades of Dirt Modified Tour presented by Arizona Sport Shirts was back in action this evening with the biggest event of the season. The highly anticipated “Let It Ride 55″ would showcase the tour with a $5,555 to win 55 lap main event. After two nights of preliminary activites set the stage for the nationally recognized modified crown jewel event it was a C-Main, B-Main, Dash, and A-Main on the docket.

Two Karsyn’s Krusaders sponsored ‘last chance qualifiers’ would hit the dirt oval with a stacked C-Main kicking off the evenings open wheel modified activities. A wild and wooly battle for position would ensue as the twenty car field battled for just six transfer positions. Sigler, Stremme, and Dellinger would immediately begin their charge through the field. Meanwhile the battle up front was a great one with Matt Stover and Kenny Johnson dueling it out for the top spot. When the checkered waved it was the DMHoF’er Kenny Johnson grabbing the win with Matt Stover, Gerald Deitch, Alan Dellinger, David Stremme, and Bret Hamilton rounding out the transfers.

Last Chance Race number two was led out to the green by Tyler Evans who would run neck and neck throughout the event with Jess Hartman and Bird Wilson. As the pack was shifting for positioning Dellinger and Stremme were again on the move coming out of the C-Main to battle for the transfer positions with Dietch, Arnold, Dickson, Stover, and Sluka. Three and four wide took over the speedway as the mod squad gave it all they had to earn the final bids into the big dance. When the checkered flew it was Tyler Evans who would grab the win followed by Bird Wilson, Matt Emmerling, Bobby Kitchen, JE Stalder, and Mark Dickson in the final transfer positions.

Lots of pyro and the famous Renegade of Dirt Modified Tour four wide spotlighted one of the most stout fields the tour has ever seen, all ready to battle it out on the 1/4 mile for the $7,555 dollar prize. After three days of racing it all culminated in a huge twenty car, fifty five lap main event for the Renegades of Dirt Modified Tour “Let It Ride 55″ led to the green by Rich Michael Jr and Tyler Nicely. With the wave of the green the biggest dirt modified event in the Eastern U.S was underway, Nicely grabbed the early point…a position the youngster never relinquished.

Meanwhile it was Strickler who fell to sixth early who would try high and low to reel in the leader but settled for third place finish on the evening while at times peeking under Rich Michael for the runner up position.
Ischua, NY’s Rich Michael Jr. pressured the Owensboro native for the entire race and with a late race caution bunching the field RMJ would duel side by side with Nicely throughout the remaining five laps but would finish in 2nd by just 0.600 seconds at the stripe.
Nick Hoffman capped off his consistent weekend with a back to back top five performance finishing in 4th. The Mooresville, NC native one the race a year ago and is the ELITE chassis builder to the 25 of Nicely who gave the Hoffman and company a back to back ‘Let It Ride 55′ title.

Lincolnton, NC’s, Matt Emmerling wheeled his Honda of Hickory sponsored #98 to a fifth place finish after starting the A-Main in sixteenth from the B-Main. The 2013 Carolina Speedway track champion was making his first appearance at the Bullring since the 2012 ‘Let It Ride’ race.

The remaining finishing order for the $7,555 to win “Let It Ride 55″ as follows: Jesse Wisecarver, Jess Hartman, Bobby Kitchen, Tanner Wilson, Mark Dickson, Travis Dickson, Patrick Lyon, Tyler Evans, Cody Parker, Anthony Kinkade, JE Stalder, Bird Wilson, KC Burdette, Jason Brookover, and Taylor Cook.

Tyler Nicely’s win marks his second on the tour in 2014 and his biggest career accomplishment at just the age of twenty. A remarkable win for the ‘Bluegrass State’ hotshoe who will cherish the title and grace the past winners forever.

World of Outlaws Late Model Series Set to Roll the Dice in Jackpot 100 on Saturday and Sunday at Tyler County Speedway

MIDDLEBOURNE, W.Va. – May 20, 2014 – After a couple busy weekends of World of Outlaws Late Model Series racing below the Mason-Dixon line, the Mountaineer State will welcome one of its largest dirt late model events of the season with the running of the Third Annual “Jackpot 100” at Tyler County Speedway on Saturday-Sunday (May 24-25).

The $20,000-to-win Memorial Day Weekend event is the World of Outlaws Late Model Series’ annual visit to the John Watson-promoted track known as the Bullring, and it’s the series’ only season visit to West Virginia.

Darrell Lanigan of Union, Ky., continues to lead the WoO LMS points by 98 markers over Rick Eckert of York, Pa. Lanigan will make a run at winning the Jackpot for the third consecutive season.

“We’ve had different cars most of the time we’ve been there (for the Jackpot 100),” Lanigan said. “You have to get up on the wheel and get it done. It’s a little tricky track, it gets really dirty and you gotta have a good setup.”

Lanigan’s small fleet of Club 29 Race Cars has not only been noticeable with the World of Outlaws, but around the country as well. “I think we’re definitely on top of the game right now, the cars are definitely great, got a good package under it, got a good team, good engine program going, you got to have a good program to put all the pieces together and if you get all the good pieces, it will definitely work.”

In regards to where Lanigan and team are with the building and putting more of his cars on the track, Lanigan says he’s fairly content with their program at this time.

“We’re branching out some, it’s definitely going to be in limited order this year,” Langian said. “We can only get so many cars done being on the road, definitely having Jimmy (Owens) out there helps, and Donald (McIntosh) and Kent Robinson, he’s been running well, we got a bunch of good drivers out there in the cars, they’re definitely helping our program and helping with feedback.”

Lanigan also feels the tire rule the series has in place has been helpful to the cost of their program and economical for everyone, especially as they roll into Tyler County this weekend.

“The tire situation is not that bad, starting on the (Hoosier) 1300’s definitely, I like that rule, it simplifies it a lot, takes some of the cost out of it, where you don’t have to have a bunch of that soft stuff with you. You gotta have good notes from the year before and know where you need to be,” Lanigan said.

Rick Eckert of York, Pa. sits in second spot behind Lanigan in the tour’s championship points and after a handful of top-five finishes in the Rocket Chassis House Car since the “Illini 100” Eckert is closing in on Lanigan for another series championship. Since Eckert’s move to the main Rocket in the stable, he hasn’t finished outside of the top-five except once with a fifth place run in his debut at Farmer City, Ill., fifth at Fayetteville, N.C., a third place finish at Lavonia, Ga., sixth at 201 Speedway and fourth in last Sunday’s event at Duck River Raceway Park in Tennessee.

But Lanigan says he is more worried about winning races right now and is not focused just yet on that elusive World of Outlaws crown at the end of the season.

“Honestly, we never look at the championship until we get towards the end of the year, right now we go out to win every race and it shows, we give it 100 percent no matter what it is and we’re there to win,” stated Lanigan.

Lanigan and Eckert lead the full-fendered crew of Outlaws into “Wild and Wonderful” West Virginia this weekend with Tim McCreadie of Watertown, N.Y., Shane Clanton of Zebulon, Ga. and Morgan Bagley of Tyler, Texas rounding out the top-five in the point standings. Rounding out the top-twelve in the series standings include: Chub Frank of Bear Lake, Pa. sixth, Eric Wells of Hazard, Ky. seventh, Frank Heckenast Jr. of Orland Park, Ill. eighth, Clint Smith of Senoia, Ga. ninth, Chase Junghans of Manhattan, Ks. tenth, Rick “Boom” Briggs of Bear Lake, Pa. 11th while Brandon Sheppard of New Berlin, Ill. is 12th.

For the Tyler County & upcoming Delaware event, teams will be allowed to race the Hoosier 1300 and up as well as the American Racer 44 and up. These tires must punch 40 or harder with the durometer.

An open practice on Friday Night May 23rd will be held with Live Entertainment to follow as well as a full show for the Renegades of Dirt Modifieds ($1,000 to win) and Stars Mod Lite Tour ($500 to win).

On Saturday Night May 24th the WoO LMS will be in action for Ohlins Shocks Time Trials and Heat Races followed by racing in the Stars Mod Lite Tour ($500 to win), Renegades of Dirt Modifieds (Twin $1,000 to win mains) and Heat Races for the Fastrak Pro Late Models.

On Sunday Night May 25th the Last Chance Showdowns and the 75-lap “Jackpot 100” will run for the WoO LMS while the Hotmod “Doubledown” will pay $700 to win, the Stars Mod Lite Tour pays $500 to win, the Fastrak Pro Late Models will race for $1,000 to win in the “Viva La 30” event and the Renegades of Dirt Modifieds will compete for $5,555 in the Annual “Let it Ride 55” race.

Each day at Tyler County the pit gates will open at 2:00 pm, the general admission gates will swing open at 3:00 pm, hot laps will begin at 6:30 pm while qualifying is set for 7:00 on Friday & Saturday, racing at 7:00 on Sunday.

Previously Sanctioned NDRL Earl Hill Memorial at Tyler County Speedway to Roll off Unsanctioned Still Paying $10,000 to Win

For Immediate Release:

Previously Sanctioned NDRL Earl Hill Memorial at Tyler County Speedway to Roll off Unsanctioned Still Paying $10,000 to Win

(Middlebourne, WV) – Tyler County Speedway, currently celebrating forty years of racing action at the ¼ mile ‘Bullring’ is set to continue with the $10,000 to win 26th Annual ‘Earl Hill Memorial’ on Saturday July 26th in lieu of the (NDRL) National Dirt Racing League’s unfortunate decision to cancel the event from its sanctioned schedule. The history making ‘Earl Hill Memorial’ will continue as planned for the fans of the Tyler County Speedway as promoter John Watson and company stand firm on their allegiance to pay $10,000 to the winner on Saturday night.

The un-sanctioning of the event comes after a call from NDRL officials was received yesterday afternoon that requested that the speedway “give up” their promised and scheduled Saturday night date in order to reschedule both nights of the Atomic Speedway’s ‘Atomic Blast’ that was canceled due to rain over the past weekend. The now UNSANCTIONED event will showcase the Bullring’s Super Late Model division in what is expected to be a stellar field of speedway favorites and area racers as they battle it out for the largest paying ‘Earl Hill Memorial’ on record.

“It’s unfortunate the NDRL sanction was removed from the event but we were literally given no option from NDRL brass. We were told that we had no say in the matter and that Atomic would be getting our date. We were really looking forward to an NDRL event at the ‘bullring’ and was shocked to learn of the NDRL’s decision to not honor their Saturday night, July 26th commitment to the great fans of the speedway and the great state of West Virginia” stated Watson.

However, when one door closes another opens. As a true show of their appreciation Tyler Co. officials are staying committed to their die-hard fans and drivers as the $10,000 to win UNSANCTIONED 26th Annual Earl Hill Memorial will rock the hills of the Mountain State by putting the true stars of our sport in the spotlight. Watson and company’s ‘the show must go on mentality’ hopes to spark a rallying cry from the blue collar race fans in motorsports who want to see the grassroots racers earn a high dollar prize and reach high speed’s at “America’s Raciest Bullring” in honor of the late great Earl Hill. If the 20th running of the popular Topless 50 just a couple of weeks ago is any indication, an event featuring five different leaders, a classic side by side battle and a blast around the cushion pass for the win this seasons Earl Hill Memorial will be one for the ages.

Tyler County Speedway has long prided itself and showcased the best area and regional racers and on Saturday night, July 26th the ‘bullring’ will welcome all competitors. A ten thousand dollar first prize will await the winner with $500 start money welcoming all that highlight the 80 lap Memorial race main event. In addition several bonuses hope to be made available including the highest finishing racer who utilizes an open hauler to get to the event, heat race pay, quick time money, and the highest finishing steel block late model.

The backbone of this sport has always been the true weekend warrior’s of the sport, much like the Earl Hill’s, Jim Dunn’s, and Charlie Swartz of the past it will be our pleasure to put the politics aside and present the 26th Annual UNSANCTIONED Earl Hill Memorial. No sanction fees, no entry fees, no provisionals just the regions bravest drivers up on the wheel putting on a show for the fans…..Tyler County style, with $10,000 large up for grabs.

Past winners include: Paul Wilmoth, Jared Miley, Jared Hawkins, Zack Dohm, Tim Dohm, Mike Benedum, Robbie Scott, Bobby Hill, Butch McGill, Gary Dalton, DJ Cline, Tim Hitt, Bob Adams Jr., Mike Hawkins, Bobby Davison.
