Strickler and Scott Grab Huge Friday Night Lights Wins

robbieslider

A packed house and bulging pit area of over 140 racers brought the curtain down on a rare Friday Night show dubbed “Friday Night Lights” at the Tyler County Speedway.  It was the Renegades of Dirt Modified Tour kicking off their Monster Modified Weekend and the FASTRAK NE Tours 2014 kickoff highlighting the evening.  When the checkered flag waived it was North Carolina’s Kyle Strickler picking up the Renegades event and Shinnston, WV’s Robbie Scott besting a fine field of FASTRAK competitors to claim the Northeast Tour’s first show of the season.  Also grabbing heralded ‘Bullring’ wins were Jacob Hawkins, Chad Smith, Jeff Fornash, Donnie Wamsley and Kylie Cross.

A stout field of 33 Renegades of Dirt modifieds representing 6 states would arrive with a $2,000 prize in their eye and looking to tame the ‘bullring’.  After four heat races and two b-mains the best of the best would take the speedway.  Kyle Strickler would vault to the early lead blasting around the top of the cushion, owning up to his nickname the “Highside Tickler” and pick up the win in convincing fashion.  Many spirited battles would thrill fans on back in the field with New York’s Rich Michael running second.  Third was a hard charging Jacob Hawkins piloting the Two Brothers Motorsports machine with fourth going to Travis Dickson and fifth to Brent Trimble.

Robbie Scott making a return to the Peoples Bank FASTRAK Late Model division would take the checkered flag after an intense race long battle with perennial winner Kyle Thomas and hold off a hard charging Jared Hawkins to grab his first win of the early season.  A talented field of cars would see four heat races going to Scott, John Over, Kyle Thomas and Ricky Williams setting the field for the first FASTRAK NE event of the season.  In the end it was Scott driving the familiar #18 Rocket sponsored by Kenny’s Machine, Slavic Decals, Rocket Chassis, Swift Springs, and Integra Shocks.  Rounding out the top five was a charging Jared Hawkins, last week’s winner Kyle Thomas, Beckley, WV racer TJ Salango and John Over.

In the J&R Excavating Super Late Model division presented by Midcap Land & Timber it was Fairmont, WV’s Jacob Hawkins driving the MJJ Motorsports, St. Henry’s Nite Club, Dargy, Melvin’s Automatic Transmissions, Miller Lite, Creekside Grill #20H would blast to the early lead and hold off a pesky Chuck Harper, Gary Dalton, Steve Weigle and Butch McGill across the line.

A familiar face would park his ride in the Modlite Victory Lane as Salem, WV’s Jeff Fornash would pick up his first win of the season.  Driving the Mutschelknaus Oil & Gas, Richard Webb Contracting, Triple H Enterprise and Tri-State Welding, Leader Chassis #99 Fornash would overtake race long leader Mitch Ward on a last lap pass.  Following Fornash and Ward across the line were Ryan Baker, Brandon Fluharty and Chris Logan.

Making it two for two in the early season defending champion Chad Smith would park his familiar #10 back in victory lane once again.  Smith would blast to an early lead before setting the cruise and besting Lou Ennis, Mick Baker, Brad Dickson and Brandon Weigle across the line.  Smith is sponsored by Quinet’s Restaurant, Litman Excavating, Blakes Auto Glass, and Fast Eddy’s Tire & Paint.

In the Front Wheel Drive 4 Cylinders it was once again Clarksburg, WV’s Donnie Wamsley going two for two.  Wamsley’s second victory wasn’t as easy as opening night as the early pace was set by the “Birdman” Robert Frohnapfel before losing a tire and setting up Wamsley to lead the rest across the line.  Rounding out the top five included Jason Frazier, Scott Critchfield, Steve Frazier and Mike Frazier.

In the MWRA Mini Wedge division it was young Kylie Cross piloting the #33 machine picking up her first win of the early season.  She would lead Brady Reed, Caleb Nolan, Philip Bubeck and Brett Coberly across the line.

Coming this Saturday Night, April 26th will be “Mystery Money Night”.  Attention drivers, get your buddies to the “Bullring” as it’s the night where whichever division has the highest car count they will race for the nightly Late Model payoff….$1000 to win/$200 to start!  Plus it’s Kids Gold Rush at intermission and general admission is just $10 with kids 10 and under FREE.

Tyler County Speedway Opens 40th Season in Grand Fashion

DSC0030

A packed house welcomed the over 100 car field back to the ‘bullring’ for night one of the historic 40th Anniversary season at the Tyler County Speedway. Garnering the 2014 season’s first checkered flags included Derek Doll, Kyle Thomas, Travis Dickson, Chad Smith, Ron Parrish, Donnie Wamsley and Brady Reed. A smooth running show including seven features and two crack the whip events took the final checkered flag at 10:45.

 

It was only fitting that 40 years after the first checkered flag at Tyler County Speedway was presented to a man named Pat Herrick that the ‘bullring’ kicked off the season with the 4th running of the Pat Herrick Memorial for STARS Modlites. Adding his name to an impressive resume of past champions of the popular event was Fairmont, WV’s Ron Parrish piloting the Randy Kerns RPM Motors, John Buelock, Extreme Motorsports black #21. Parrish would survive a race long battle with Mitch Ward, Brandon Fluharty, Jeff Fornash and Tracy Fritter to claim the coveted event. Following Parrish across the stripe were veteran Tracy Fritter, Jeff Fornash, newcomer Tyler Frankenberry and Brandon Fluharty.

 

A stellar J&R Excavating Super Late Model event presented by Midcap Land & Timber would see young lion Derek Doll vault from his sixth starting position and overtaking race long leader and last seasons track champion Butch McGill with just two circuits remaining to claim his 1st win of the season. Doll of Greenwood, WV driving the Marshall Doll owned blue and yellow 87 sponsored by BSI Well Service, Perkins Supply, ASC, Rocket Chassis would lead McGill, Mike Benedum, Corey Conley and Sonny Conley across the line.

 

It was all Gallipolis, Ohio’s Travis Dickson in the Two Brothers Motorsports Modified division as the young hard charger Renegade regular would earn the victory in preparation of Friday’s big Renegade of Dirt Modified tour event. Dickson pilots the family owned AM Commodities, Fannin Farms, Lias Tire, Outlaw by Shaw #16. Dickson would lead perennial track champion Bird Wilson, Lance Elson, New Yorker Rich Michael and Chris Basich across the stripe.

 

2014 started out much like 2013 for Pennsboro, WV’s Kyle Thomas as the young ace parked his Peoples Bank FASTRAK Late Model in victory lane once again. Thomas back in his family owned #57 would methodically work his way from his 7th starting spot to secure the popular win in the ultra-competitive division that seen 22 cars take the green. A race long tussle between leader Derek Rogers and former late model ace Robbie Scott would thrill fans before Scott got high out of turn 4 down the frontstretch making contact with the wall and bringing out the caution. A workmanlike drive to the front for the patient Thomas would eventually see last years track champion take the lead from Rogers and besting Beckley’s Aaron Barley, Rogers, Danny Thomas and Brandon McGrady. Thomas is sponsored by Powells and Son Farm, Thomas and AJ Logging, Dodd’s Sporting Goods, Slicks Auto Detailing, Maka Energy Solutions, Highlines, The Window Outlet, and Small Town Realty.

 

Sardis, Ohio’s Chad Smith would continue his red hot performance of 2013 by picking up his first victory of the season in the EDGE Hotmod division. The defending track champion aboard the sharp looking black 10s sponsored by Quinet’s Restaurant, Litman Excavating, Blakes Auto Glass, Fast Eddy’s Tire and Paint would hold off a determined Travis Thomas, Darren Glover, Lou Ennis and Kenny Isner to pick up the win.

 

After a year absence the mighty Front Wheel Drive 4 cylinders returned and perennial winner and champion Donnie Wamsley didn’t need a map to find the ‘bullring’ victory once again. Wamsley would park his familiar 00 Ford Escort sponsored by Barbie’s Day Care, East Gate Used Cars, Frosty’s Preowned into the winners circle ahead of Robert Frohnapel, Scott Critchfield, Mark Critchfield and Mike Frazier.

 

In the JJK Mineral MWRA Mini Wedge division it was Brady Reed besting Kylie Cross, Philip Bubeck, Garrett Jones, and Caleb Nolan.

 

Be sure to join us April 18th for a Friday Night Lights special event this week as the ‘bullring’ goes green on a rare Friday Night. See the East’s top modified pilots head to the Tyler County Speedway as the Renegades of Dirt Modified Tour will converge for a $2,000 to win top prize bringing in the best modified drivers on the planet. Current point leader Kyle Strickler from NC will lead the strong contingent to the ‘bullring’ in hopes of picking up night one of Monster Modified weekend.

Hawkins wins Bud Weigle Memorial!

Wilson, Thomas, Isner, Teeters & Frazier Pick Up Inaugural Bud Weigle Memorial Wins

Tyler County Speedway finally got one up on Mother Nature as a near perfect picturesque evening greeted race fans to the first annual Bud Weigle Memorial.  A jam packed pit area with over 120 race teams packing the ‘Bullring’ would see Jacob Hawkins, Tanner Wilson, Kyle Thomas, Kenny Isner, Jeff Teeters & Kaitlyn Frazier pick up the hardware in memory of Bud Weigle.

The night began with two track records in qualifying as the Bristol Bullet, Mike Benedum would break his own super late model track record from 1996 by setting a blistering 12.259 around the hammer down ‘Bullring’. Also setting the standard in the Modlite division was defending track champion Brandon Fluharty clocking in at a 14.354.

A classic ‘Bullring’ Super Late Model main event would see racers running 3 wide all over the race track hammer down and elbows up using the infamous Tyler County Speedway cushion, the middle and the bottom.  After a ferocious side by side battle with Mike Benedum it was Jacob Hawkins aboard the St. Henry’s Nightclub 20h pulling out the victory and hoisting the first Bud Weigle Memorial trophy.  Rounding out the top five were Benedum, Paul Wilmoth, Derek Doll and KC Burdette.

Young Tanner Wilson of Zanesville, OH picked up his second win of the season at Tyler County Speedway in the 2 Brothers Motorsports Modified division.  Wilson would prevail over an early race battle with leader DJ Cline and hold off a hard charging Jess Hartman to secure another victory.  Rounding out the top five were Wilson, Hartman, Cline, Bird Wilson, Jesse Wisecarver.

Once again in the Peoples Bank FASTRAK Late Model division it was Pennsboro, WV’s Kyle Thomas continuing his dominance of the division by picking up another victory.  Thomas held off a closing Brandon McGrady, Joel Prosser, Daniel Hill and Tracy Sampson.

Jeff Teeters of North Jackson, PA would invade the ‘Bullring’ and pick up the impressive victory aboard the Leader House car in the Chris Metz State Farm Insurance ModLite division.  Teeters held off a closing Tom Keplinger, Ron Parrish, Mitch Ward and point leader Josh Baldwin.

Kenny ‘Radar’ Isner of Hannibal, OH would grab the win in the Hotmod division.  Isner would best Chad Smith, Lou Ennis, Codi Eaton, and Travis Thomas across the stripe.

Breaking the ‘little ice man’s’ strangle hold on the MWRA Mini Wedges was Kaitlyn Frazier picking up the deserving win ahead of  Kylie Cross, Alec Frazier, Jacob Ice and Brady Reed.

No racing next Saturday Night, August 10th due to the Tyler County Fair.  The ‘Bullring’ will be back in action with a gigantic night of action on Saturday Night, August 17th as it’s a ‘Back to School Blowout’ featuring double features.  A night stuffed with action that will see race fans treated to nine feature events for just $12!  Gates open at 4, racing gets underway at 7.

Rolling on massive tractor tires and powered by a motor that has to be making 2,000+ hp, it is a four wheel drive beast designed to skim over, sky over, and drive over anything stupid enough to come into its path!

Then he hit the gas.As you will see, the truck immediately launches into a power wheelie and in typical Dennis Anderson fashion, he drives the thing like his foot is tig welded to the floor. For whatever reason he keeps all the way into it and the truck literally drives itself over backwards. The engine is in the rear of the truck so once it gets to a certain point, physics take over and there’s no way it can come down on the tires again.The in car footage is totally great and it is played at full speed and instant replay. The creepy thing is watching the mud and water rush into the truck. Anderson is OK so he obviously escaped before having any issues with being submerged.

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

Renegades of Dirt Modified Tour

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.
