Happy, Texas (03/06/17) – Rodney Sanders powered his Wichita Tank Racing #20 Swan Energy/ MB Customs/ Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model to his first win of the season on Friday evening with a $3,000 triumph in MARS competition at Clarksville Speedway.
“Starting position was key all weekend at Clarksville, and luckily we were able to start up front both nights,” noted Sanders. “On Friday night we were able to capitalize on our front-row starting spot to get the win. Saturday night we just couldn’t get the jump we needed at the start of the race, but we were still really happy to get a runner-up finish.”
Hopping behind the wheel of his DriveWFX.com #20 Super Late Model on Friday night, Rodney Sanders made the trip to Clarksville Speedway (Clarksville, Tennessee) for the opening round of the two-day Toliet Bowl Classic. With 40 entries registered for the MARS DIRTcar series season-opener, Sanders earned the pole position for the A-Main after capturing a heat race win. Jumping into the lead at the drop off the green flag, Sanders wheeled his way through lap traffic late in the race to pick up his first victory of the season and a $3,000 payday. Terry English, Tony Jackson Jr., Kent Robinson, and Cody Mahoney completed the Top 5 finishers in the 30-lap affair.
Saturday night found the winner’s check upped to $5,000 as Sanders again won his heat race to earn a front-row-starting spot for the finale. Pole-sitter, Dennis Erb Jr. grabbed the lead at the drop of the green flag and with passing coming at a premium, Rodney fell into a single-file line behind the leader.

Rodney crossed the finish line in the runner-up position with Scott Crigler, Gordy Gundaker, and Tony Jackson Jr. completing the Top-5 finishers.

Bergman Bound for I-30 Speedway Opener This Saturday
Inside Line Promotions - COLUMBUS, Miss. (March 6, 2017) - Seth Bergman will get one final test before his chase for the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour championship begins later this month.
Bergman is scheduled to head to I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., this Saturday for the track's season-opening race.
"We've produced strong results at I-30 throughout the years and I like the elbows-up type of racing that you do when you race there," he said. "Our goal is to earn our first win of the season on Saturday and springboard ourselves into the ASCS National Tour season with momentum."
Bergman recorded a sixth-place result in 2009 during his first year visiting the quarter-mile oval. He then garnered six top fives and nine top 10s between 2011 and 2013, but has only ventured to the track a handful of times the past three years.
"We haven't raced at I-30 very often recently, but I feel good about the notes we've created there in the past," he said. "We should have a good baseline setup and if everything goes well we will be a contender."
Bergman kicked off his season last Saturday with the USCS Series at Magnolia Motor Speedway, where he quickly powered from sixth to third place in a heat race before pulling into the infield midway through the race because of a mechanical problem. He scratched from the remainder of the night to make sure he didn't create any further problems.
The Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour season begins March 17-18 at Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas.
QUICK RESULTS -
March 4 - Magnolia Motor Speedway in Columbus, Miss. - Heat race: DNF (6); Feature: DNS (-).
SEASON STATS -
1 race, 0 wins, 0 top fives, 0 top 10s, 0 top 15s, 0 top 20s

Bergman would also like to thank Oilfield Equipment & Manufacturing, Lucas Oil Products, Young Tools, Triple X Race Co., Scott Baylor Racing Engines and FK Midwest for their continued support.

Sides Aiming for First Win in Las Vegas This Weekend With World of Outlaws
Inside Line Promotions - KILGORE, Texas (March 6, 2017) - Jason Sides is hopeful luck is on his side as he is venturing to Las Vegas this week for the FVP Outlaw Showdown with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series.
Sides has been involved in a crash during the two World of Outlaws weekends this season, including last Friday at LoneStar Speedway during the East Texas Lone Star Shootout.
"The car felt really loose in hot laps to begin the night," he said. "We were in the infield before qualifying and couldn't go to the trailer so we tightened it up a bit. It wasn't that great and felt loose in qualifying. We didn't qualify very well. We tightened it up some more for the heat race and that helped. The more we tightened it the better it got."
Sides, who qualified 19th quickest overall, maneuvered from seventh to fifth place in a heat race to lock himself into the 13 th starting position for the main event. However, the team found a problem on the race car and was able to fix it prior to the feature.
"That made a world of difference in the main event," he said. "We had a really good car and moved forward. We were up to eighth with nine laps remaining when we had a caution. When we got going another driver got into us from behind and spun us out. It collected me, Aaron Reutzel and Joey Saldana. When Joey hit us it ripped the nose wing and top wing up and when Reutzel got into us it bend the hip bar by the seat."
Sides was unable to finish the race and he was credited with a 21 st-place result.
Saturday's show at Gator Motorplex in Willis, Texas, was postponed to April 13 because of inclement weather.
The team returned home to Tennessee last weekend to rebuild prior to heading west this week for the Outlaws doubleheader at The Dirt Track at Las Vegas on Thursday and Friday.
"I enjoy going there," he said. "I like the race track. You can run all over it. We've had six or seven top fives. It's been really good, but we're still looking for that first win."
Sides has earned seven top-five finishes and nine top 10s in 13 races at the half-mile oval since 2009, including three straight runner-up results in 2012 and 2013. He has also secured at least one top-10 finish at the track each season for the past eight years.
QUICK RESULTS -
March 3 - LoneStar Speedway in Kilgore, Texas - Qualifying: 19; Heat race: 5 (7); Feature: 21 (13).
SEASON STATS -
7 races, 0 wins, 1 top five, 3 top 10s, 3 top 15s, 4 top 20s
