Wilson stuns Outlaws at the Dirt Track

Greg Wilson stuns Outlaws at the Dirt TrackGreg Wilson wins woo

Greg Wilson with Hercules on his side stunned the Outlaws at the Dirt Track Charlotte with a come from behind last lap win. The Ohio based racer rarely races with the Outlaw event and his recent efforts have been disappointing.

The Dirt Track at Charlotte fans looked like installing Shane Stewart as early favorite when the Larson Marks entry posted quick time for the night .After the heats and dash had been decided the front row of the 30 lap Main was fronted by Daryn Pittman and Ohio’s Cole Duncan. Greg Wilson and Shane Stewart sat side by side on row two.Stewart fast

Cole Duncan surprised Pittman and led the charge for the first 4 laps before Stewart managed to squeeze ahead and lead into lap 5. By half race distance Wilson was back in 5th place with Pittman, Duncan, Saldana and Stewart ahead.

By the time the caution for Jason Sides was displayed with laps left in the book Saldana had fallen to 5th and Wilson had passed Pittman and was racing nicely in third place behind Duncan and Shane Stewart.

The race track appeared to be taking rubber and getting slick as the top three raced towards the finish. In a dramatic finish Greg Wilson must have summed the strength and wisdom of Hercules and with a stunning back straight move passed Duncan  first then with just the last corner to go move under Stewart as the Larson Marks driver could not hold his position and Stewart fell to second .Wilson had found the drive on the bottom of the track early and had his race car placed perfectly as he entered each corner and clearly managed the track condition better than those chasing and and the Ohio wheeler went on to record only his second Outlaw win .It was an amazing finish that brought the crowd to their feet cheering madly.wilson wins

Wilson’s first Outlaw win was last September at Eldora in the four Crowns event. It is not always the best funded teams that succeed and this case it was the driver who recognized the track conditions early and managed to place his race car in the right position, exactly what the Hercules Tire/Ohio Logistics No. W20 did..Congratulations Greg Wilson on a superb race wins.

Driver interviews: Greg Wilson  “It’s a little surreal right at the moment…I’m just in shock,” An emotional Wilson said. “I am racing with the best sprint car drivers in the world, night-in and night-out. We missed that show in New Egypt and looked like maybe we shouldn’t even be out here, and then we turned it around tonight.

“That’s dedicated work by our team and all of the people that are a part of this. I am truly grateful. Once again, if you’re not a Wilson fan, thank you for spending your hard-earned money to be here tonight.”

Shane Stewart “”It was good to have Justin [Marks] and Kyle [Larson] in the house, and to have a good finish for them,” Stewart added.”There’s a lot of Eneos Oil people back at the trailer too, so just a good solid finish for everybody at Larson Marks Racing. I love all these fans – it’s always a joy to come here to Charlotte.”

Cole Duncan “we’ve been fast all year but just can’t seem to find victory lane yet, but they got to be coming. We are pretty consistent and we keep putting the time and effort in. We’ll go back to the drawing board; we don’t have to change much but just try to figure out how to keep the tires on there.”

Pittman stops the Posse at New Egypt

Pittman wins New Egypt

New Egypt- New Jersey You won’t see a pyramid or a camel but what you saw was a determined Daryn Pittman going about collecting his fourth win in succession at new Egypt .With the Posse looking to have the Outlaws eating their dust around New Egypt. Right from qualifying Hodnett looked like he would dominate the night, posting fast time during qualifying and leading every lap of his heat and the dash. The pill draw was a 0 so it ensures Hodnett’s good early pace would be rewarded with pole for the 30 lap a main.

Hodnett had the Lelands.com/Eagle Steel No. 27, working nicely out front and controlled the race right up until lap 16 when the three times Jersey Outlaw Classic winner found fast way round the top to first pass Mark Smith in the Mach 1 Chassis No. M1 before he grabbed the point from Hodnett.Hodnett fast time

Once into the race lead Pittman built a gap between the chasing Posses but the lap traffic slowed the #15 and towards the race ends Hodnett found the top and started to close in on the Great Clips #15.The New Egypt event was the successive night that Hodnett had lost the race lead late and had to be content with the runner up spot.

Post race interviews :

Daryn Pittman “I’ve been really frustrated with myself with how many front-row starts I’ve had this year and as few wins,” Pittman said. “I got up this morning and thought ‘Man, third is where I want to start’ – I just had that feeling this morning that if I start third I was going to win.”Things went our way and we ended up starting third.”Pittman fast

 “We haven’t been struggling by any means, but we needed a win,” Pittman said. “This really makes me feel good, and makes them feel good going back home to Charlotte this week. We’ve had some pretty bad finishes but hopefully this can erase that and we can get on a better streak of just running up front.”I felt like I was struggling [later in the race]…Those last four laps, I didn’t feel like I made any of them very good, so I wasn’t breathing good until I saw them throw the checkered.”

Greg Hodnett “I didn’t go up there until he passed and then I realized there was a whole other track to run on. We kind of caught him again in traffic and passed a couple lapped cars, but we just needed to keep running. He was definitely the faster car; we just needed him to slow down a little bit through some lapped traffic.”Mark Smith

Mark Smith “”I was hoping to come down here and just get a top five, but we got a top three and we’re up here on the podium.” Smith said. “I kept trying different lanes to try and make some time up on Greg Hodnett], then I heard somebody, that ended up being Daryn.”He was a lot better than us and drove by us. We were about the same speed as Greg, but we just couldn’t go through lapped traffic like Daryn could”

Schatz escapes the Posse’s lasso at Weedsport

Schatz escapes the Posse’s lasso at WeedsportSchatz weedsport

Weedsport ,May 22nd  The battle continued at Weedsport and the Posse was strengthen by the appearance of Greg Hodnett.All the talk continued around the Outlaw Posse Challenge but it was Logan Schuchart who took control of the 35 lap A main for 31 laps.

Schatz struggled  early and missed a start in the dash. Starting in P9 the seven times Champ had plenty of work ahead.Even though Schatz had had indifferent form this year he sits clearly in second place in the series and coming off a last start win at the Grove the Bad Boys /Chevrolet Performance #15 looked a threat from the green. Quickly moving through the pack Schatz had made the top 5 by the half way point of the race. Once into second the #15 ate up the gap quickly to close on Schuchart.Logan Schuchart

Schuchart had the hopes of the PA crowd on his shoulders as the Hanover hotshot went looking for his maiden Outlaw win.When Schatz has you in his sights it signals danger and despite withstanding all other challenges he could not withstand the final Schatz charge and the racer from Fargo North Dakota moved into the race lead with 4 laps to run.

The disappointment was evident when Schuchart spoke with the press .This was his second runner up spot with the Outlaws this year but the racer from Hanover is close to his maiden Outlaw win, it’s not far off judging by his form this year.Following Schatz and Schuchart home was the ever constant David Gravel in his CJB Big Game #5.Gravel has been steady all year and is quietly moving up the standing with 2 wins, 14 top 5 and 20 top 10 finishes.

The Outlaws will next go around on May 24 at New Egypt, New Jersey and Schatz will trail Brad Sweet by slender 39 points and the message to Sweet is clear the Bad Boy is coming and FAST.

Driver quotes

Donny Schatz “I got all the faith in the world in this race team – Tony [Stewart] has assembled an awesome group of guys,” Schatz said, as raindrops started to fall from the sky. “These guys are unbelievable and we have a lot of fun together. I’m sure they’re ready to get off the east coast because I have been riding in the truck with them and I think they’re ready to get rid of me for a while and have a break.podium weedsport

“We did go back to the notes from last year, but for some reason we can’t go back to that stuff, it doesn’t seem to work,” Schatz said. “If you look at tonight, I think the track record was broke by 23 cars, compared to last year we were rolling around a second slower, so that changes the dynamic of the car a little. You just have to stay on top of it and I have a great group of guys to do that.

“I don’t know if we have hit our stride yet, like I’ve said, we gain in one area and make ourselves better but we might lose a little in other spots. It’s a challenge, definitely fun at the moment trying to get a handle on it.”

Logan Schuchart “I just didn’t have the car at the end, we started to get too loose,” Schuchart said. “It’s a great run; the guys did a great job. We came up one spot short but it’s nothing to hang our heads about. We have a great team and we’re learning – but we’re a little disappointed.

“I couldn’t tell you [what happened at the end],” Schuchart said. “I got really lose, and before I even saw a numbered car beside of me, I knew it was the 15 car. He’s really hard to beat on these types of racetracks and I feel like these are the types of tracks I shine on – when it gets slick.

“These guys are tough, so to run second against these guys and just keep getting better is what’s importantGravel interview

David Gravel “We’ve been running really well, then went to PA and struggled a couple of nights, so it’s good to back on the podium,” Gravel said. “It was a tricky track here tonight, and we were good at the end of the race. I got to thank all my guys – Austin, Derek, Barry – they worked their butts off on the long haul here.”

Schatz wins but the Posse was tough

Schatz wins but the Posse was toughSchatz

ABBOTTSTOWN, Pa. – May 19, 2016. After the wash out of night one of the Gettysburg Clash at Lincoln the battle for Sprintcar supremacy e World of Outlaws and the PA Posse continued.The regular clash between these two giants of US Sprintcars is eagerly anticipated by fans worldwide.

At Lincoin at least Donny Schatz did none thing and that was to clearly stamping himself as the top dog .Earning pole after his strong qualifying and Dash win the seven times Outlaw Champ lead from the start and every lap of the 35 lap journey to stake the Outlaws claim for supremacy .

The win might look easy from the official results but Schatz hard to stay on his marks as Danny Dietrich, Brent Marks and Greg Hodnett chased down the Champ right to the flag and in the process burnt off any other likely Outlaw challengers. Behind Hodnett came Logan Schuchart and Lucas Wolfe. Brad Sweet was the next best across the stripe.schatz crosses first

Schatz was clear and precise through the traffic but he needed to be as Dietrich always looked like he could threaten the lead. In taking his sixth win for the Outlaws season Schatz became the first Outlaw since 1997 to get over the top of the Posses in their backyard and claim the “Gettysburg Clash.

With Schatz giving the Outlaws some bragging rights partisan Posses fans would say 2spots on the podium probably squared up the argument so the question will now need to be resolved at the two night of the Morgan Cup at Williams Grove this Friday and Saturday night.Now with six wins in the bag Schatz has move up in second place and is making Brad Sweet’s lead of 91 points looking just a little vulnerable.

Driver quotes:

Donny Schatz: “It’s great to win here at Lincoln, especially after never winning here before,” Schatz said. “Everybody was pretty equal and you can see that because not too many cars got lapped during the race and that’s just the nature of the beast. That front-row starting spot was key, as it has been at a lot of races this year, and I am glad I could capitalize on it.

“The expectation is you want to win every night, and it’s not going to happen. We haven’t been that bad but for the standards this team has put forth the last several years, it kind of seems that way. We have tried several things, and I guess to be in the situation we are in right now where we can try these new things and make ourselves better, that’s going to pay off for us at the end of the year.”

Danny Dietrich:” This was a good run for the team,” Dietrich said. “To be able to run second out of 38 or 39 cars it’s definitely a good feeling. We’re satisfied with our finish tonight, just too bad it couldn’t be one position better.Danny Dietrich

“Donny [Schatz] is a heck of a racer, catching him and passing him was going to be a whole other problem. He was in the preferred on the start so that made things a little tougher, but congrats to him and we’re going to move on to The Grove tomorrow.”

Brent Marks :” I got to second there, got past Danny [Dietrich] in turn three, and I thought he was going to slide me back, so I drove it in too hard and just got over the ledge a little bit and he got back by me. I felt like I blew the race there because I felt like we had a good enough car that if we got some laps we could run down Donny. Don’t know if I could have done anything – maybe shown him my nose and put some pressure on him, but never got the opportunity. Other than that, I felt like we had a good run against the Outlaws and I can’t complain.”Brent Marks

David Gravel Outlaw winner at Tri-State

David GravelHAUBSTADT, Ind. — May 14, 2016  Tri-State Speedway and David Gravel gets into the grove that found the CJB #5 on top of the podium and record his second win for the season. Over resent weeks Gravel has found impressive speed since taking over the seat at CJB Motorsports.Gravel and team at Tri-State

Australian Champion Kerry Madsen was fast and impressive early in the heat a and the dash .His early nights forms gaining him the pole for the 40 lap A Main. Australia’s other entry World Series Champion Jamie Veal unlike Madsen had a difficult early start to his night and the Warnambool Wizard had to run from the Last Chance Showdown to gain his A main transfer.

Gravel started alongside Madsen and soon rounded up the Aussie Champ to lead the 24 car field into the 40 lap journey.While Gravel’s speed was no surprise the performances of no Outlaws USAC ‘s 2014 Sprintcar Champion Brady bacon and the youngster Parker Price – Miller was .The two non outlaws were at the top of the points heading into the A main and maintained their superb form in chasing down Gravel and Madsen.

Gravel had to work to keep the Bacon challenge in check to ensure he crossed the stripe in the lead position and take his win tally to 2 for the season. Bacon’s second was his second Outlaw podium after also finishing runner up last year behind the then CJB Motorsports driver Paul McMahan

Bacon at tri state

Madsen slipped back from his pole position to finish in 5th position after losing his fourth spot to Schatz with 10 laps left .Jamie Veal in the Indy Race Parts #71 started from position 20 and move passed 7 car to finish 13th and win the hard charger award.

Driver post race quotes :

David Gravel   “I saw Brady [Bacon] on the bottom, so I had to move down and protect it,” Gravel said. “I thought in lapped traffic we were pretty good but it was hard to pass lapped cars, so I was just happy that I could move down and hold him off.”

“I thought it was big when I cleared two guys on the bottom when Brady was running the bottom, and I know that gave me a little bit of time,” Gravel said. “I was just trying to move around and make them guess where I was going, because running first you don’t always know what is going on behind you and it’s a disadvantage.”

Brady Bacon  “We had a really good car, and we have had a really good car all year,” Bacon said. “This is my best chance every year to get a chance to win, and we were really close. It is easier to swallow after last year leading most of the race – tonight we were charging, but just couldn’t get there.”

Parker Price -Miller “Haubstadt is probably one of my favorite tracks in a winged car,” Price-Miller said. “We had a fast car…I think we had a car that could’ve won, but I just made too many mistakes and lapped traffic was really hectic. I got a little tight in the dirty air, but I’ll take it, it was a good run.The World of Outlaws are the greatest out there and the toughest in the business…if you can run with them and finish on the podium, it’s a good night.”Parker Price Miller

Jamie Veal’s next two dates with the Outlaws

Veal Eldora pit

                                                     Jamie Veal’s next two dates with the Outlaws

The Warnambool wizard Jamie veal will make his next World of Outlaw appearance this Friday at the Bob Morgan Classic at Plymouth Speedway and then Veal will back up on the Saturday night at Tri State Speedway. The two nights sees Jamie Veal right in the middle of the Hoosier State.Jamie veal’s Indy Race Parts team have been busy building a new race car after Jamie had an unfortunate incident on the last lap at Eldora which destroyed the Indy Race Parts race car..Jamie Veal 71 Indy Parts ride

Championship leader heading into Plymouth Brad Sweet looks likely to become the first Outlaw in 2016 to top the US$100,000.00 mark. Sweet sits on top of the points and money list with earning of US$98,300.00 but is closely followed by Schatz with US$93,400.00.

In his two appearances with the Outlaws Veal has made both a Mains and with a new car under him and improving confidence Veal’s chances should not be overlooked .A time back home in Australia Veal have taken on and beaten many of the Outlaws but on unfamiliar tracks the task becomes a little harder.

Joining Veal in the field will be the man of the moment Kerry Madsen after taking the Outlaws apart with two huge wins last week end at Eldora

Madsen double boom at the BIG E

 

 Madsen boomMadsen double boom at the BIG E

Australia’s Sprintcar Champion Kerry Madsen went Boom ,Boom at the  Big E,Eldora Speedway.Without a win with the Outlaws since August 2015 Kerry Madsen took all before him wining both nights of the BIG E World of Outlaws and USAC “Lets Race Two show” Madsen outlaw winner

Madsen’s performances have not been results wise what the Keneric Team would have hoped for at the start of the season. Sitting in a lowly 14th position in the points when the Team rolled into Eldora the weekend would remind the Outlaws if they ever needed to be of the sheer determination, raw speed of the so called Mad Man from St Mary in Western Sydney. Madsen was fast all weekend and ended each qualifying session near the top of the times.

The Big E held no worries for Madsen with a Kings Royal win in his trophy cupboard Madsen set about setting the pace. With all the way wins on both nights it might suggest he had an easy road to the checkers, far from it .

The All Star Circuit of Champion regular and ex Outlaw Chad Kemenah chased Madsen home on both nights and at time looked to have Madsen covered. There was no other driver over the two nights that appeared to be able to haul Madsen in .The Australian AU1 running under his Outlaw number #29 was clearly delighted with his powerful and emphatic triumph, the $20K would also have delighted the Team.

The return to form so quickly after missing the A main at Jacksonville will certainly have those sitting ahead of him in the points concerned .The completion within the Outlaw group is crazy , points and race wins hard to achieve and with the keneric Team and Madsen firing at this level its get that much harder.

While Madsen taking was taking all the applause Australia’s other representative Jamie Veal made both A Mains finishing 22nd on night one and 17th  night two.

Driver post race interviews

Kerry Madsen

“We’ve been quick all year and we just haven’t showcased it. The guys just stepped it up – the car was a rocket ship all weekend,” Madsen said. “Just to get this up here the last two nights is fantastic. It was a hell of a race.”

“I didn’t know who it was but I knew he was there so I stepped it up and nearly junked the thing in two,” Madsen said. “I thought, I better not do that again. I definitely upped the tempo when I saw him and I knew if there was one hiccup, the line he was running, he would drive right by me. It was intense.”

Chad Kemenah

“I could hit right through the middle of the race track, I don’t know why,” said Kemenah, who finished second for the second night in a row. “I could go wherever I needed to go. I probably showed (Madsen) my nose there too soon there with Kerry and he knew I was there. Hats off to them guys, they did a really good job both nights. When you start up there, you need to capitalize and I did.”

Daryn Pittman

“ Luckily , I was in third the whole time and did’t see what was happening behind me. I could hear them and somebody would show me their nose every once in a while so I figured it was getting pretty heated.

We had a good weekend .Our car is close. We’re just a little off. Kerry and Chad both were kind of in a class of their own this weekend

Jamie Veal’s top 10 Outlaw finish

Jamie Veal’s top 10 Outlaw finishJamie Veal 71 Indy Parts ride

Jamie Veal’s US tour opener with the World of Outlaws and Indy Race Parts finished with a solid top 10 placing.

Settling into the seat of his new race car the Indy Race parts with the unfamiliar #71 on the tail Veal settled in quickly as he pumped the gas and became one with the Jacksonville. Quarter mile, racy bullring during hot laps and qualifying.jamie veal being pushed away

Qualifying strongly and facing a tough first up heat against Saldana, Stewart, Schatz and Gravel Veal finished a strong 3rd and gained automatic entry in the nights a main .A difficult night as illustrated by both Ian and Kerry Madsen finding them running the B main looking for the transfer spot. The Australian Champion Kerry Madsen still carrying the #29 in preference to the AU1 finished in 8th and missed a transfer to the A main.

A seasoned campaigner in Australia up against the elite in World Sprintcar racing the nerves might have needed some settling down but once the #71 fired up and was pushed away the concentration and drive would have been completely focused on putting the Indy Race Parts #71 in the best possible position once the green flag was given to the 24 car field powered to the first corner.

A top 10 Outlaw finish was an encouraging start to Veal’s US racing tour and to be the top finishing Australian would be very satisfying .

The final placing for the World of Outlaws Jacksonville show,

1.Saldana [1] 2.Stewart [3] 3.Sweet [5] 4.Schatz [16] 5.Reutzel [2] 6.Pittman [4] 7.McMahan [11] 8.Zomer [9] 9.Schuchart [6] 10.Veal [12] 11.Sides [13] 12.Wilson [15] 13.Loyet [7] 14.I Madsen [23] 15.Smith [17] 16.J Johnson [10] 17.Haudenschild [8] 18.Nienhiser [18] 19.Bayston [20] 20.Miller [21] 21.Hurley [19] 22.Kody Kinser [24] 23.Rose [22] 24.Tripplett [14]
